  1. The Washington Post article today indicates Secret Service complicity in the attack on the Capitol, though the Post doesn't seem to fully grasp that. Since this event allegedly was an inside job, it’s noteworthy that, as the article points out, the Secret Service was very slow in getting Pence out of the chamber. It states that Pence "was not evacuated from the Senate chamber for about 14 minutes after the Capitol Police reported an initial attempted breach of the complex — enough time for the marauders to rush inside the building and approach his location, according to
  2. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), a former US Air Force officer and currently a colonel in the Air Force Reserve, said on MORNING JOE today that the mob was trying to assassinate Pelosi and hang Pence and that members of Congress were involved in the planning of the attack on the Capitol.
  3. Letter to DOJ and FBI from AZ State Reps. Athena Salman and Reginald Bolding et al:
  4. DEVELOPMENTS RE THE ALLEGED 1/6 PLOT: Trump's attempt to kill his own VP is another first in American history (Pence also had his wife, daughter, and brother at the Capitol while the mob was chanting "Hang Mike Pence!" and he was whisked to safety by the Secret Service, although he refused to go to Fort McNair and stayed within the Capitol). Politico and other outlets -- even the Washington Post -- are full of information about alleged plotters from within the Republican ranks in Arizona to plan the 1/6 assault on the Capitol (evidently also intended to hold as hostage and/or kill members of C
  5. He wasn't actually on the scene of the assassination.
  6. Much has been written about that topic. To quote Casey Stengel, "You could look it up." And the DPD sent Tippit and Mentzel to Oak Cliff shortly after the assassination, knowing Oswald would go to that area, where he lived.
  7. The DPD had been tracking Oswald for quite some time and knew his Beckley address. They sent Tippit and Mentzel out to get him in Oak Cliff shortly after the assassination, about an hour and a half before Oswald's identity was "officially" known by the department following his arrest in Oak Cliff and his transportation to the police station.
  8. The DPD sent Officers Tippit and Mentzel out to track down Oswald in Oak Cliff shortly after the assassination. So the department knew where he lived well before his arrest and where he would be going. Oswald met repeatedly with the FBI that November. They would have known where he lived.
  9. Oswald was an FBI informant who infiltrated the plot and reported on it to them and then found out after Kennedy was shot that he was being made the patsy in the plot. The Dallas Police Department also knew who he was before the assassination. Both agencies knew where he lived -- and the FBI clearly knew he was going by the pseudonym of O. H. Lee. Gladys Johnson gave me a tour of the house on one of my research visits to Dallas.
  10. Secret Service shakeup replacing agents who are Trump loyalists and stooges with those who have worked with Joe and Jill Biden: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/secret-service-to-make-changes-to-presidential-detail-to-bring-on-agents-who-worked-with-biden/2020/12/30/d6fb8fe8-49ce-11eb-a9d9-1e3ec4a928b9_story.html
  11. What a shame we don't have the Babushka Lady film shot facing the Zapruder area and the rest of the Grassy Knoll, while panning with the presidential limousine. Or the 16mm film shot from a car in the motorcade by a CBS-TV photographer focusing on JFK at the time of the hit and then panning to the right and tilting upward to the TSBD corner window. If Oswald had been in the window, we surely would have seen that film.
  12. When I was a high school student in Milwaukee, I listened to network radio reports on 11-22-63 from 12:40 p.m. onward. For twenty minutes, the reports all said the shots came from the front, from the railroad bridge area or the hill to the right of the motorcade. At 1 p.m., the radio networks started saying all the shots came from behind, from a building called the Texas School Book Depository. No explanation was offered for the change of direction or for the lack of mention of the previously reported shots from the front. I listened to the radio in a drugstore un
  13. It's sad and outrageous that the argument of innocence carries no weight with the parole board, but the alternative to trying to argue that in letters is acquiescing in letting Sirhan die in prison, which would be intolerable. I remember reading that John F. Kennedy said when he was in Congress that if he received eight letters from constituents on an issue, he would take notice, and it would influence him, because few people take the trouble to write their congressman. Writing, printing, and mailing a physical letter to the parole board may make an impact o
  14. Laurie Dusek adds in a Facebook post, "Sirhan needs letters in support of him being granted parole. This isn’t about retrying the case as the Parole Board won’t listen to anything about the underlying crime. This is about Sirhan being in prison for over 52 years and denied parole 15 times even though he has a clean record in prison and both State and defense psychologists say Sirhan poses no threat to himself or society. "Please, even just a short letter saying 'I support parole for Sirhan' would help. Sirhan deserves justice."
