  2. Trumpy, Trump, Trumpism to its logical conclusion: Trump-loving Virginia candidate attacks her own party and tells followers not to trust its vote counts by Brad Reed April 15, 2021 https://www.rawstory.com/amanda-chase-2652591837/ “Chase, a Republican candidate for Virginia governor who in the past has been forced to work from inside a plexiglass box over her refusal to obey the state legislature's mask rules, told her followers that the Virginia GOP will not deliver the "proper" results of its own upcoming gubernatorial convention, where she's pitted against six other Re
  3. A group of anti-maskers in Sandpoint, Idaho this week protested a local library and criticized it for making "health and safety" its top priority. The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that protesters gathered this week to demand that the Sandpoint Library rescind its mask mandate and let them into the library without any kind of face covering. Protester Grant Dorman, for one, criticized the library's policy of prioritizing the health of its staff and patrons. Shutterstock Once upon a time, I interviewed for a job as the Director of that Library. Thank goodness I didn't
  4. As insurrection raged, a South Florida video blogger provided a play-by-play – to Russians By Kevin G. Hall April 14, 2021 Miami Herald https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article250505589.html “The Russian-speaking video blogger from South Florida walked alongside the throngs wearing MAGA hats and carrying Trump flags as the crowd descended on the Capitol, heeding the call to disrupt the certification of electoral college results. His broadcast reached Russian speakers across the United States and in the mother country, pushing the Stop the Steal narrative and
  5. Richard, The search function off the main page seems to be working okay. I did a quick search for Robert Castorr (Colonel). Here's a small item. The highlighting is mine: http://jfk.hood.edu/Collection/Weisberg%20Subject%20Index%20Files/M%20Disk/Martin%20Shirley/Item%2024.pdf Steve Thomas

  7. Doug, Do you know if James Rothstein worked with Jack Caulfied in New York? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Caulfield From 1953 to 1968, he was an officer with the New York City Police Department (NYPD). Jack Caulfield, Bearer of a Watergate Message, Dies at 83 By Douglas Martin June 21, 2012 https://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/22/us/jack-caulfield-bearer-of-a-watergate-message-dies-at-83.html “By all accounts, in January 1973, Mr. Caulfield met with James McCord Jr., a former C.I.A. officer and one of the burglars in the Watergate break-in, to tell him that th

  9. Conspiracy Land by David Gambacorta, April 7, 2021 The Philadelphia Inquirer https://www.inquirer.com/news/a/qanon-conspiracy-theory-trump-voting-philadelphia-20210407.html “He (Eric Ward) was troubled then by federal, state, and local authorities’ reluctance to treat conspiracy and far-right extremist movements as an urgent threat, and worries that the Capitol attack will prove to be the prologue to darker incidents. “We’re going to find ourselves right back to this moment in three years, and it will look much more serious than Jan. 6,” he said. “But no one will believe it
  10. Maggie Haberman @maggieNYT News accounts all day focused on the attack at the Capitol that left a police officer dead. Many of those news accounts mentioned the Jan 6 riot of Trump supporters after he spent months claiming the election was stolen. Here is his takeaway This man must never be allowed to hold an office of public trust in the United States, or any other country, for the rest of his life. Steve Thomas
  11. Tony, Do you know of a list of Dallas FBI agents back in November of 1963? I know I've seen one somewhere. I don't remember de Brueys being on it. Maybe he wasn't assigned to the Dallas office. The following is just for curiosity's sake: FBI Dallas History https://www.fbi.gov/history/field-office-histories/dallas Interior of an early Dallas Division office I was surprised to learn that Gordon Shanklin only became the Special Agent in Charge of the Dallas Field Office in April, 1963.

  12. Tony, Yes, the idea that Ruth Paine's address book led to the discovery that Oswald lived on Beckley is bogus. The DPD and Sheriff's Deputies arrived at the Irving St. front door at 3:30. The DPD arrived at the Beckley St. front door at 3:00. And, if the Johnsons are to be believed, they were at Beckley even sooner than that. If agents of the FBI were at Beckley, possibly as early as 2:00 PM, I would like to know who those agents were. I have no problem believing that Oswald was an FBI informant, but the information flow from the FBI to local police was not exactl
  13. Jim, I suspect, but cannot prove, that Gladys Johnson mistook Will Fritz's plain clothed detectives for FBI agents; but to be perfectly honest, I don't know who the hell these people were. At 2:40 PM, W.E. Potts, B.L. Senkel and Lt. E.L. Cunningham were dispatched to 1026 N. Beckley. Potts wrote in his after-action report (Box 2, Folder# 9, Item# 32) http://jfk.ci.dallas.tx.us/box2.htm that after he finished taking some affidavits, Fritz dispatched them to the Beckely St address at 2:40 and they arrived at Beckley at 3:00PM. Detective B.L. Senkel also said in his after action report
  14. Richard, Not too long ago, I was reading Will Fritz's account of how he planned to spirit Jack Ruby out of jail to take him over to the county jail. I'm sorry, I don't remember where it was I was reading. After physically planning the extrication route, Fritz recounted how he phoned in the plans to headquarters using a pay phone to avoid the plans being overheard or leaked. I was concentrating on something else at the time, and didn't take too much notice, but I wonder if the same thought process was underway here. When J.D. Tippit needed to make a call, he tried to us
  15. Buddy Walthers called Bill Decker on a pay phone? Doesn't that strike you as just a little bit odd? Steve Thomas
