Could someone please find and post Robert Kennedy's very strong statement of support for the Warren Report made in September, 1964? Of course, Robert Kennedy did not believe a word of this. Just read the book Brothers by David Talbot.

I am looking for a prime example of what Robert Kennedy did NOT believe about the JFK assassination, as well as what he was putting out for public consumption.

I've have googled myself out trying to find the statement that Robert Kennedy issued in Sept, 1964 upon the release of the Warren Report farce.

Any help finding this would be appreciated.

Bernice, thank-you so much. You are always such an ace at finding stuff. Having said that I am still looking for Robert Kennedy's statement that he issued to the press in September, 1964 upon the release of the Warren Commission.

Eventually, I will google enough and I will find it. It was a ringing endorsement of the Warren Commission farce. The media was pushing that WC propaganda at maximum levels back in those days of 1964-1965.

From page 278 of Brothers, by David Talbot:

Katzenbach worked out a deal for Kennedy with Warren and the commission's chief counsel, Lee Rankin. In return for being excused

from testifying before the commission, Bobby would be required to sign a letter written by Warren Commission attorney Howard Willens,

which read, "I would like to state definitely that I know of no credible evidence to support the allegations that the assassination of President

Kennedy was caused by a domestic or foreign conspiracy." After hesitating for several weeks, Kennedy finally signed the letter, though he

knew it to be untrue, and had it delivered to Willens on August 4.

The pact Robert Kennedy made was a fateful one, for it would put his name on record as endorsing the Warren Report - a document that, as time

passed, would be widely condemned as a fraud. For the rest of his life, Kennedy would be forced to publicly defend the official version of his

brother's assassination - a predicament that filled him with increasing turmoil over the years, since he believed that its central conclusion

about a lone assassin was false.

Robert, what is your point? An outcome of RFK's silence is that "our thing" grew in influence as RFK literally stepped aside, to the point that today it is embodied in the form of an billionaire individual who has bought the federal prosecutor who barely got a conviction against him in 1977, and the U.S. Attorney who was supposed to be investigating him in 2007. He bought the president of the University of Scranton, and he is in an unholy alliance with the Jesuit order. Eric Holder was able to get a conviction against the Bufalino soldier who fixed the jury in the billionaire's 1977 trial, but the billionaire himself has been untouchable.

All indications are that RFK folded at a critical time and the organized criminals he outwardly built his reputation investigating, have run roughshod over the landscape ever since JFK was murdered and RFK withdrew. You see a hero and a victim, I see a man who made decisions that might have seemed to be in his own best interests at the time, but decisions that had huge, negative repercussions to American society and to what RFK claimed to be committed to improving, ever since.

Will Louis DeNaples' past haunt casino's future?

What a reputed mobster said to state gaming investigators could affect whether Mount Airy owner gets license renewed.

November 23, 2009|By Matt Birkbeck OF THE MORNING CALL

...D'Elia, the alleged head of the Bufalino crime family, pleaded guilty in November 2008 to money laundering and witness tampering.

It's unclear what D'Elia told gaming investigators. D'Elia's attorney, James Swetz of Stroudsburg, said he wasn't there in July when D'Elia was interviewed.

But federal prosecutors said in their motion that D'Elia had previously provided "conclusive evidence of a longstanding relationship with DeNaples … including photographs and other documents."

The motion was supported by the gaming board.

Dauphin County prosecutors also agreed with the sentence reduction, saying that D'Elia had told a county grand jury about his longstanding relationship with DeNaples. D'Elia told the grand jury DeNaples attended the funeral of D'Elia's mother in 1980. Prosecutors also had state police surveillance photos of DeNaples attending D'Elia's daughter's wedding in 1999, along with several high-ranking Philadelphia mobsters, according to the federal motion...

DeNaples' rags-to-riches story marred by 1978 guilty plea, rumors of mob ties

Pocono Record - Jan 31, 2008

...DeNaples is also a philanthropist, donating large sums to Scranton Preparatory School — where he sent his seven children — the University of Scranton, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Scranton, the United Way and many other charitable and nonprofit institutions...

Community shows support for DeNaples

By Bob Laylo and Tim Darragh Of the Morning Call

January 31, 2008

...A Dauphin County grand jury said DeNaples lied about his relationships with four people, including two alleged mobsters, to get his slots license.

The Catholic Diocese of Scranton, another beneficiary of DeNaples' charity giving, chose not to comment directly on the allegations.

''Mr. DeNaples has generously supported many institutions in the community and many worthwhile endeavors … including the Catholic Church, and we are very grateful for his support,'' said spokesman Bill Genello.

Other institutions DeNaples supported also took a forgiving view.

''Louis DeNaples has been a great asset to Community Medical Center and the community of Scranton,'' said John Nilsson, interim president and chief executive officer of the Community Medical Center Healthcare System. ''His service on our board has been exemplary. I think we all should let due process take its course before passing judgment.''

Likewise, the University of Scranton, which this month opened a student center bearing the names of DeNaples' parents and gave him an honorary degree in 2005, issued a statement of support.

''Louis DeNaples and his wife and children are great friends of the University of Scranton. We are grateful for their steadfast support as trustees, alumni, parents, benefactors and volunteers. As always, Louis and his family remain in our prayers.''

The university and Scranton Preparatory School have been major recipients of DeNaples' largesse. The university returned the favor in October 2007, when it awarded him its President's Medal at a black-tie event at The Pierre in New York City.

Around the same time, the Lackawanna Bar Association awarded DeNaples its Chief Justice Michael J. Eagen Award for community service.

Even as the grand jury's report was coming to a head, DeNaples continued to expand his reach. Just last week, published reports said DeNaples had joined the board of the new Commonwealth Medical College in Scranton...

Sources: Mount Airy owner focus of U.S., state investigation

Probe looking into possible contribution to Rendell, they say.

By Matt Birkbeck Of The Morning Call

August 19, 2007

...Marino, who was the Lycoming County district attorney before his federal appointment in 2002, declined to comment on his recusal. Martin Carlson, his first deputy, said, "We don't comment on matters involving recusal."

Begun in 2004, the federal/state investigation yielded money laundering charges in 2005 against three Scranton-area men, Richard Smallacombe, Frank Pavlico and William D'Elia, who federal authorities say heads the Bufalino crime family, which has operated for decades throughout northeastern Pennsylvania. D'Elia was charged in November 2006 with conspiracy to kill a witness.

Smallacombe and Pavlico have pleaded guilty to reduced charges and agreed to testify in other cases, court documents show. D'Elia awaits trial.

The federal/state probe has led FBI and Secret Service agents to interview Louis Coviello, 51, a convicted murderer serving a life sentence at a state prison near Mahanoy City, Schuylkill County.

Coviello, in a prison interview Aug. 9 with The Morning Call, said FBI agents asked him about DeNaples. Coviello said his father, Joseph, had done business with DeNaples and that Coviello often had eaten at DeNaples' home.

"I was there hundreds of times," Coviello said.

Coviello's father was charged with DeNaples and two other men in 1977 of bilking Scranton of $525,000 for cleanup work following Hurricane Agnes. A hung jury led to a no contest plea on charges of defrauding the federal government for the four men, who were placed on probation. But four other men, including a member of the Bufalino crime family, were convicted later for their roles in bribing a juror during the DeNaples trial.

Coviello also said he testified July 26 under subpoena before a Dauphin County grand jury about the relationship between his family and DeNaples.

D'Elia appeared in July before the same grand jury, which in part is probing whether DeNaples lied to the state gaming board about alleged ties to D'Elia. State gaming law prohibits a casino licensee from having ties to organized crime.

DeNaples denied to the state gaming board in December any ties to D'Elia or organized crime. Feeley, DeNaples' spokesman, told The Morning Call that month that DeNaples "has no relationship with organized crime or any member of organized crime." ...

DeNaples' priest arrested

He's charged with lying about mob ties in investigation of casino owner

By Matt Birkbeck and Christina Gostomski Of The Morning Call

January 3, 2008

One of the first calls the Rev. Joseph Sica made after being arrested was to his longtime friend Louis DeNaples: "Don't say anything," DeNaples told him, "We'll take care of this."

That's what a prosecutor said Wednesday as Sica, a Roman Catholic priest, was charged with lying to a Dauphin County grand jury investigating DeNaples over his Mount Airy Casino Resort.

Sica, 52, is accused of lying about his relationship with the late Russell Bufalino, the longtime head of a northeastern Pennsylvania crime family. Sica was released on $20,000 bail after being charged with one count of perjury...

From a University press release.

Like everybody else, we are trying to figure out what sort of President he will be. The standard PR fluff shows him to be a good fund raiser who built a lot of buildings at Scranton.

We do note that he signed a statement emphatically rejecting a call by some leftist academics to boycott the State of Israel and Israeli scholars. Father Wild and Marquette are conspicuously missing from that statement.

Is Pilarz committed to the Catholic mission of universities like Marquette? The record shows he sometimes clashed with Scranton Bishop Martino, but Martino himself appears to have been rather abrasive and aggressive.

The University of Scranton did assure Bishop Martino that “Condoms are not available on our campuses and our student health services and centers do not provide oral and other forms of contraception.” That, of course, could be a bit of an evasion.

A search of the web site of the Cardinal Newman Society doesn’t show the University of Scranton to be one of the universities that that conservative Catholic organization finds flouting Catholic teaching.

However the University of Scranton ran afoul of the new Bishop (Joseph Bambera) for an “inclusion initiative” that invited a pro-abortion speaker (one Sara Bendoraitis) to campus. It seems that at Scranton, as at Marquette, “inclusion” applies only to suitably politically-correct views. Pilarz released a mealy-mouthed statement defending the “inclusion initiative” but also claiming “I want to make clear that the University does not endorse views or positions of speakers when such views are contrary to our mission and to the teaching of the Catholic Church.”

The truth, of course, is that the liberal bureaucrats who arrange these programs do endorse the views of pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality speakers. Much as Fr. Wild has done at Marquette, Pilarz has given them a free rein to promote their agenda at Scranton. Indeed, he has largely bought into their agenda. Under the guise of providing a “safe place” for GLBTQ students, and combating “homophobia,” Scranton, like Marquette, has pretty much said “forget Catholic teaching about homosexuality.”

If pushed to the wall, as Fr. Wild was in the case of Jodi O’Brien, would he stand up for the University’s Catholic mission, or cave? The truth is that we don’t know. But we will learn, hopefully not the hard way.
