  1. David - have you looked into the parallel story of Oswald entering Mexico by car? I don’t think this materially changes your research. It seems likely true that our Oswald never visited embassies in MC. But I’m still curious.
  2. Hi Paul T - welcome back. did the Mexican police at the border take ID of those in the car? one more point on DPD and the Dallas right wing extremists among them - many were Army Reserve as well.
  3. No moral high ground, even though we claim it all the time in America. But the main point I was trying to make is the absolute futility of adversarial politics in an age where software is everything. The only way out for humanity is to make peace, and I am well aware of what a difficult task that would be. But we don’t even try, and until we do there is less hope every day.
  4. What would JfK think? What would he do? I attended a Zoom conference the other night and cyber threats. I think it’s obvious that nation states can no longer rely on physical muscle to be top dog. There can no longer be a top dog when state or non state actors can hack into nuclear power lands and weapons facilities. Time to make peace. I never liked Red baiting. I don’t think of China as the Yellow Menace. Are we still at odds with Communism? Do we dare to think we sit on moral high ground?
  5. These conspiracy theory tests are circulating elsewhere. One thing they have in common is that whoever is composing them lacks critical thinking skills.
  6. The one negative and provable thing about Joe Kennedy was his attitude towards Jews, even if he did advocate establishing safe havens for Jews in Africa and other places so they could leave Germany.His isolationist views and his anti-semitism were not out of the mainstream at the time, and his children certainly didn’t inherit this attitude.
  7. I see them as evolving flawed human beings who raised themselves up and created a short lived rather idealistic dynasty.
  8. I don’t see it as beyond his moral compass either, but bringing liquor into Massachusetts by boat during prohibition needn’t be proof of longstanding ties to organized crime. I’d have to have more to go on than Costello’s statements.
  9. Let’s see what Jim has to say. RFK jr had plenty to say about his grandad in American Values, even mentioning Halpern. I don’t trust mafia sources as much as family. Pete - I don’t want to come off as an expert. It’s my nose for bs at work here. I’ve read and seen so many times what an awful chap Joe K was, but he worked for FDR, and that might have been enough to begin the character assassination.
  10. Chuck - nicely done. I’ve read all of Bill Kelly’s work on this, as well as Talbot. The only quibble I have is the connection to Volkmar Schmidt, whose story seems part of the Dallas incrimination of Oswald. Schmidt’s guilt over turning Oswald into an assassin is a bit much. What do you think? I doubt that Oswald ever went to Mexico City, though if he did there was impersonation going on there anyway. And I’m not sure he tried to kill Walker.
  11. Me too - really looking forward to the book and to your essay.
  12. Just read your review - once again a great one. It seems to me that a major journalist/historian ought to take this on - if only mainstream media paid any attention to your excellent work. It seems so crucially important to the whole sorry Kennedy tale and fable. I can’t even watch for a minute any of the Kennedy family biopics and series that get aired. I’ve tried to watch one or two with people, and they just eat it up. Joe Kennedy has been completely maligned. My bet is that many reading this probably believe that stuff because it gets repeated so often and is firmly esconced in mainstream history. Joe was a crook, and his son a Cold Warrior. RFK Jr did take it on in American Values, but he is now completely dismissed despite decades of good work because of his stance on vaccines and on the billionaire takeover of everything. I’m not sure if the mercury in vaccines causes autism, but I can say with absolute certainty, having read it on the CDC website, that it is still in wide use. How many people know that? Any vaccine packaged in multi dose format has to, by law, contain mercury. Have any doctors that anyone here knows ever informed their patients that single dose flu shots sans mercury are available for the asking? Leaving vaccines out for a minute, RFK Jr is right on the money when it comes to the billionaires and their multinational corporations and foundations. They are taking over everything - media, governments, seed bank, arable land, aquifers.
  13. It does not get worse. I read that it was Halpern who is responsible for painting Joe Kennedy as mafia, poopoo, etc. Does Newman go into this smear campaign?
  14. Greg - I really appreciate your line of inquiry regarding Oswald’ movements and Larry Crafard. You make a very logical if unproved assumption that Crafard was working for Ruby, that he shot Tippit (presumably to cover a trail) and was going to shoot Oswald. Let me ask you to speculate - do you think Ruby was taking these actions on orders from mafiosi? Or someone else? In addition to his mob ties (which I’m not sure are very well documented) he also had ties to others in the Dallas milieu like McClendon, and to local cops. He mentions Edwin Walker by name while in custody. What’s your take on Ruby and his henchman Crafard?
