  1. I guess it is if you already believe in Harvey and Lee. There are 100s of Oswald sightings in evidence and IMO more than half are mistakes or deliberate frauds. Steenbarge's sighting isn't enhanced by waiting 20 years to mention it - when another phase of assassination interest was peaking in the media. If this very detailed account was made in 1963 I'd take it very seriously. In 1978 I take it as creatively enhanced memory. Jason
  2. One of the several reasons why I believe it is worthwhile to investigate Walker and the Radical Right is because that's who Earl Warren and many others assumed killed Kennedy: SOURCE All items available in the Warren Commission Hearings & Exhibits https://www.maryferrell.org/php/showlist.php?docset=1006
  3. In case readers are not aware, Harry Dean is the only person active on this thread who had a connection to Oswald etc. in 1963: Much more on Harry Dean: https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=75354#relPageId=2&tab=page No, Roger, my plate is full with reading at the moment. Plus, I have a day job and a family and aging parents and....everything... I hope to get to Craven's thesis. I've read Walker's testimony in places but haven't given it a full treatment. For the moment, the most glaring point that stands out is
  4. David Von Pein is a much-needed voice of rational evidence-based discussion on this forum. Jason
  5. The Dallas authorities have original jurisdiction and their ongoing decision to ignore the assassination speaks volumes. The truth could still shake things up badly. BTW, just to nitpick, the Texas Attorney General is not really an active crime-fighting office. The Dallas DA, the DPD, and the Dallas County Sheriff's Department are in prime positions to release old-hidden evidence and even generate new undiscovered evidence; in the unlikely event they want to re-open the case and risk upheaval in their own agencies.

  6. I work on projects for Rex Bradford at the Mary Ferrell Foundation and I hope everyone will just browse through the huge collection - you'll be very surprised at what you find just by random searches. In case anyone is looking for more primary source material on this subject, there is a wealth of General Walker information here: https://www.maryferrell.org/pages/Featured_Walker_Documents.html?search=general walker
  7. For one thing, he's a secondary player as far as official and most conspiracy theories go, which is to his advantage. He gets less attention. Maybe Westbrook's less obvious role is a deliberate part of the plan? - - - based on the fact that while all the action at DPD headquarters was around Capt Fritz and Oswald, Westbrook is inexplicably in the decidedly less interesting HR office. Even more inexplicably, "Oswald's pistol" is processed in this HR office, along with the usual comedic chain-of-evidence routine and inconsistent testimony that is typical of Dallas police officers on t
  8. Hi B.A. Copeland, Thanks for adding some intelligent comments to the thread. IMO the method of this crime points to who "these guys" might be, and IMO the method of the assassination isn't often looked at rationally. I am not a cop nor a professional investigator, but at one point in my career I did bank and insurance-related investigations often involving major crimes. I took 4-5 classes, which, again, doesn't make me an expert. With that said, I feel fairly confident in applying a few truths from basic crime science to Dealey Plaza - and the top line item I invoke is that t
  9. Hi Paul, FBI agent Hosty says Oswald had FPCC contact right around the time of the Walker shooting on 10APR63. Correlation does not imply causation. However, correlation does imply correlation so I have to ask how the shooting of General Walker in April is related to Oswald's April move to New Orleans, and the April(?) contact between the FPCC and LHO?

  10. Hi Paul, I think some of those who have the CIA running the assassination likewise incorporate some rogue Radical Right players as an admitted possibility. The problem in all theories is in connecting an identifiable leader with the ground crew in Dallas. In this thread we've spotted cops who are obviously part of the conspiracy. But who are the cops in bed with, or following? IMO the likes of Buddy Walthers are ideologically, culturally, and of course physically closer to General Walker and the southern Radical Right than anyone in Washington or the CIA. In many cases
  11. Hi Paul, Obviously I have no doubt Dr Caufield told you that Garrison's first CT was a Radical-Right-did-it explanation for the assassination. I believe that Caufield inspected Garrison's files and today we find evidence as to why Caufield would tell you this (see document 1 below). However, I have to be honest and say that once believing the Radical Right is to blame and then switching to a CIA-did-it narrative really doesn't make sense. 1. According to Jim Garrison's discovered witness Rudloph Davis, the Lake Pontchartrain training camp was a creation of the John Birch S
  12. That's how it worked in 1963 as well. The "deep state" both then and now has no need to risk the wildly dangerous, circus-show stunt of trying to kill someone as they drive by in a convertible, cameras rolling. Those in power have and had many ways to defrock a president. Dealey Plaza barely "worked" with 1-2 "good" shots and several misses; furthermore it never really "worked" since the conspiracy accusations began, loudly, right away. Sloppy evidence is all over the place. The "Deep State" destroys presidents with no or very little second guessing from its opponents - z
  13. Hi Paul, Your question is interesting. I might say your question is another way of asking: What has New Orleans got to do with the assassination? From a historiography perspective, New Orleans is relevant because that's where Jim Garrison did most of his work. But didn't Jim Garrison say the CIA-did-it, both in his books and in the Oliver Stone movie JFK? 1. Serious students of the assassination believe LHO is a right winger?.........(according to Jim Garrison) 2. The CIA analysis of Jim Garrison's work invokes the extreme Right, so why is the C
  14. I agree. The DPD stage managed the assassination, while the sheriff's department seems critical mainly at the TSBD. The WC testimony makes this obvious and the disturbing thing is that it apparently took a few years for anyone to read enough of their testimony to make a big deal about it, which is what I see Jim Garrison doing. If people would simply read the WC testimony, the starting point and critical people are obvious. Furthermore, everyone is so caught up in the high drama of conspiracy theories that very few are actually looking in Dallas; almost no one looks closely at the
  15. Hi Mervyn, This is where I depart from your train of thought. There is no reason to invoke the supernatural or extraordinary, is there? For everyone else in the world using a passport is sufficient to confirm their identity. Why suggest that in Oswald's case there is no "proof...LHO was involved," when for everyone else in the world we believe they alone use their own passport unless strong evidence suggests otherwise? LHO may or may not be truly interested in ASC. Evidence of his interest or non-interest in ASC is not so important when we consider that the true value of ASC
  16. Just to be clear, Oswald is purposed towards FPCC infiltration in New Orleans according to your CT? But there is no FPCC in New Orleans until Oswald shows up, so what are they hoping to do; infiltrate up nationally? Or identify local Castroites/communists in New Orleans? Jason
  17. Hi David, thanks for the polite conversation. Let's be clear: I'm not arguing against your opinion. I'm only giving consideration to other explanations. It is IMO enough for a man in Oswald's situation to seek ASC admission merely as a way to legally travel. His interest or lack of interest in education is possibly not relevant. Having some even nominal educational plan in Europe is probably enough to count as an allowable exception to the rule against reservists leaving the country. I've seen this enrolling-in-college tactic used in many other examples where the militar
  18. Hi Paul, I'm just exploring possibilities here. I'm aware that many see the 10APR63 attack on Walker as a staged event which may or not have actually involved LHO. OTOH, you say George de Mohrenschildt incited Oswald's naturally leftist views so much that Marina's testimony about Oswald saying he shot at Walker is 100% true. In any case, the Oswalds bolt for New Orleans days after Walker is attacked. New Orleans in the summer of 1963 seems essential to both the assassination authors and the coverup. Events are apparently accelerating which will spiral in to Oswald's Novemb
  19. Hi David, Your evidence positioned in your posts are appreciated. Thanks again! Thanks for asking my opinion. I value your as well. I think the basic answer to your question is that we're coming at this with two different objectives. I think you see and want Albert Schweitzer College as part of a grand narrative and insofar as the discussion on this thread goes, I'm only talking about a snapshot of time. You want to see where it fits with everything else you know. I only want to look at ASC in terms of Oswald in the moment. As with a lot of teenagers, LHO could hav
  20. I think Mervyn Hagger has shown us that Albert Schweitzer College was mentioned in many newspapers throughout the 50s, which kind of deflates the narrative that says Oswald would never have found this school on his own; what do you think? David, I appreciate your posted evidence very much! But this point is really weak - someone lies about being attending college and this means he is CIA? Are all liars CIA? Or just the ones who lie about college? DISAGREE Oswald is required by law to stay in the US as a condition of his Marines discharge. He is on active res
  21. Thanks as always for posting so much evidence, David. As to this question you ask, hasn't Mervyn shown us (either here or on "the other" thread) that there were numerous advertisements and/or sources of publicity for ASC in various newspapers? Don't you think Mervyn's newspaper.com hits have shown that the ASC is not so obscure? Oswald's need to attend college overseas in order for the Marines to allow his post-discharge (but still Active Reserve) travel, so he finds an easy school soliciting young US students precisely like Oswald in their advertising. Jason
  22. Hi Paul, The fact that there are two officially mandated outbursts of violence from Lee Harvey Oswald prior to 22NOV63 is, IMO, important to the Oswald-as-Commie mask the assassination plotters hoped to broadcast to the public, don't you agree? One of the two key plot points in the patsification of Lee Harvey Oswald are the 1963 outbursts of violence against: General Edwin Walker, one time leader of the John Birch Society Carlos Bringuier, currently -14MAY2018- a John Birch Society member Apart from their JBS connection, General Walker and Carlos Bringuier are col
  23. I use imgbb.com, which hosts your images and provides an embedded link so that they appear here. You can also email it to me and I'll post it, attributed to you. Again, amazing work. Top notch. Thanks and keep it coming. Jason
  24. Hi Mark, Thanks for your note. We've been told in this thread to admire and accept the usual mantra of established CT dogma: that Albert Shweitzer College is obscure, certainly a fraudulent creation, and with no possible mechanism for LHO to find on his own. Hence, it is CIA, we're told. Mervyn Hagger has resisted groupthink. Instead of citing and accepting the conclusions of others, Mervyn shows us evidence he found on his own, evidence that IMO shows The Establishment is wrong about Albert Schweitzer College. Furthermore, his original research using primary sources sho
  25. »»»OUSTANDING WORK, MERVYN««« This is evidence that speaks for itself, from a primary source, Dr Schacht. It's peerless research unmatched around here, thanks. Jason
