      Yes David, of course. 

  2. Yes this is my number Paul,. I finally got so exasperated missing connections today, I decided to go book a hotel room and get there and sleep and i missed yours.With texting, e mailing and phone calla and airline tickets, hotel reservations, Lyft,  and my own ineptness texting with these small letters on my cell phone, I finally had to call it quits and accept the fact that I've also blown a bit of dough and just hang it up and hope tomorrow is a better day. Sorry to waste your time but I'd still like to get together some time     .Kirk

    P.S. I first wrote this to respond to your text and wouldn't you know it the text "failed to deliver". At least copying  is a lot easier on my laptop.

      Hi Kirk - just had to make sure about the message. Yesterday was not good for me. Sorry you went through all that. I guess you wee on your way out of town and got waylaid? Ain’t easy to get anywhere inthe Bay Area these days. Next time for sure especially with some advance. 

  3. Hi Paul, Interesting your brief review of "The Inheritance". Has it brought you to again consider LBJ as being behind the assassination.If such a notion would start to proliferate i would certainly expect a lot of resistance from Jim. i don't tend to believe  but I don't have a great resistance to the LBJ idea. Sounds like a successfully guarded deep state secret that has left us completely clueless.

    Might as well give up, .But I understand who can? I don't say that facetiously. I've come to the conclusion that the idea that we're here because someday people will learn the truth is not as important to most here , as it is to me, but more of a personally obsessive search that people have no choice over. And judging from the progress over the last 20 years. I don't give it much hope unfortunately.But like you, I'm checking for the newest angle.

    Did you like your stay in San Pancho?  How was that area North of PV.?  I always thought it was beautiful.

      Hi Kirk. Jeez - San Pancho seems like ages ago. It was very nice. So were Todos Santos and Pescadero on the Pacific coast above Cabo San Lucas where my daughter had her wedding party last year. 

      The book is interesting, yet no one is interested. Jim has a short fuse. He invited me to a Symposium in SF in December which was nice of him, and very interesting. John Newman, Bill Simpich, Peter Dale Scott, Pat Speer, Linda Pease, many others there including David Josephs, who made a presentation on Oswald in MC. Jim does good historical research, but seems very opinionated. I’m not sure what he believes. 

      Its not far fetched to think LBJ was involved, and it doesn’t conflict with the general theory that elements of CIA and military, FBI were complicit. It’s for sure a state secret and it does seem futile at times to think anything further will be revealed. I keep reading though, even hoping. I’m curious was John Barbour has going with Garrison files. He seems like a really straight shooter. 

      Think we will send troops to Venezuela? I’m not even sure what’s going on.

  4. Hi Paul, I was hoping to get up there to the Talbot interview with RFK Jr. and meeting you as well. Unfortunately it was the one weekday I couldn't make it. I'll be  curious to hear what you think of it. Again thanks for informing me and let me know of any other such events in the future.

      Kirk - I completely neglected to post that David Talbot posted on FB this morning that due to the death of Christopher Lawford the interview was cancelled. Talbot hopes to do it at another time. I’m going to post a thread now. It would be a pleasure to meet you sometime.

  5. The big question I have now (I know I'm way off topic) is whether the 'deep state' which to my mind controls the center of the Democratic Party, has lost control of the Republican right, and of Trump and his criminal gang in particular. When Bush and Romney start looking like good guys you gotta wonder. "

     

    Paul I often find that you and I are in agreement about some of the greater issues behind the JFK Assassination, and our broad viewpoints are similarly humanistic.

    I think it's better to PM you about this, because I notice people on this forum mention the "Deep State" but  it seems to be a topic that no one here ever dares to explain. As if keeping it in the dark will somehow make us better able to deal with it. Nobody wants to bring it out in the open.

    In that paragraph, you seem to have a very good idea what you think it is. Having conversations with you previously, I assume your definition is not say the Fox News definition. (but maybe it is) But you've lost me here.. What specifically are talking about that controls the center of the Democratic Party?.

      Hi Kirk,

      i see the confusion. I singled out centrist democrats because they have done a poor job for so long opposing the micc. The Republicans are not in opposition and don't pretend to be, though as you say there are points of conversion between the far right and the more liberal left. Senator Feinstein is a perfect example. While the Republicans move right, beginning with Goldwater actually, the Democrats move center even while their base, or their would be base if we had full voter access, moves left. Bernie Sanders carried a progressive message forward, even though he probably would have been a poor candidate. The center of the Democratic Party did their best to shoot him down, and Hilary Clinton, who I voted for, is still doing so. I haven't read her new book, but I would bet that she didn't really address voter disenfranchisement, which is the biggest problem we face. So basically I'm pissed with the Democrats who try to marginalize their left wing. We know how the CIA made a point  of controlling the message and media by creating and supporting liberal media outlets. Do they still? Are Feinstein and Warner (who voted against Rand Paul in the recent attempt to have a new debate on foreign intervention) willing to fight?

      Hi Kirk,

      I don't mean that individuals in the Democratic center are hooked in to some secret nexus. But they are in some sense hooked in to the world view that the old deep state has, which is American Empire. I think we lost our '60's leaders because they wouldn't buy in to this vision. 

      I wish the Democratic Party would move to the left, as they are now by getting behind Sanders' single payer plan. I'd like to see a younger presidential ticket with at least one woman. 

      How about you?
