  1. Bill Moyers testified under oath to the HSCA that he gave the order for the removal of the bubbletop. Others have also made that claim. One of the oddities of this case is that Moyers has never written the memoir many would have assumed he would write and that would sell many copies, whatever he writes about the events and people in his life.
  2. Baughman's book SECRET SERVICE CHIEF is quite good. I read it when it came out (it was published in January 1962). It is rather prophetic. The fact that I had read it was one reason I was not entirely surprised when Kennedy was shot and saw through some of the lies that were quickly spewed out that day about what happened. I wrote my short story about the Kennedy assassination, "The Plot Against a Country," even before that, in October 1961, for my freshman English class at Marquette University High School in Milwaukee. I believe I was concerned because of th
  3. Jim, it's obvious she put it in writing. Various printed sources said he demanded that. Then there was a meeting. Then he OK'd her. Connect the dots. And if you Google for a minute or two, you get this on NPR's website: The Senate has voted to confirm Avril Haines to be director of national intelligence, making her President Biden's first Cabinet-level official to receive Senate confirmation. The vote was 84-10. Her confirmation comes after Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., briefly held up the process, asking for a written response from her about a question during her confirma
  4. Although we narrowly fended off an attempted coup, Avril Haines could not be confirmed by the Senate today as director of national intelligence until she put in writing at the demand of the vile Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) that she and the Biden administration would not go after CIA officers from the Bush-Cheney regime for their involvement in the US government torture program. She had given verbal assurances, but he insisted on having it in writing. (See articles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Politico. Cotton wanted this known.) That’s just Day One. The lines were draw
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Letter to DOJ and FBI from AZ State Reps. Athena Salman and Reginald Bolding et al:
  8. 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
  9. He wasn't actually on the scene of the assassination.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
