McClendon certainly fits the profile of someone who would actively finance anti-Castro operations, given the time and place. If he was pals with Ruby for more than prurient reasons, that would add to the Ruby story, that Ruby was more than the not-too-bright nightclub owner portrayed.

 

 

What other reasons could there possibly be for any of the Dallas wealthy elite and power people to have any association with 2nd rate strip joint owning Jack "brass knuckle" Ruby other than gambling, pimp, bag man and deli sandwiches?

And not knowing how intimate Ruby's friendship was with McClendon, but wouldn't supposedly JFK and Jackie loving Ruby have been put off by McClendon's apparently open vitriolic hatred of JFK?

Ruby was probably an government asset

Joe B.--

We don't know, as the WC was a cover-up, and the HSCA became a Mob-hunt.  Now, many are dead, some even naturally. 

Some people who have (economically) lower-class speaking patterns and social mannerisms are dismissed, and Ruby was that. His clumsy attempts at ingratiation (sandwiches) might have been successful in other circumstances. 

But Ruby may have had his portion of native wits. If Ruby was such a buffoon, how is it he figured out how to penetrate DPD defenses and plug LHO?

Ruby was not a buffoon.  He orchestrated football bets for Harrison Lafayette Hunt in the 1950's.  The richest man in the world at the time.  Yes the H L Hunt Oswald supposedly wrote the letter to questioning his role.  And the one whose office building Ruby visited the day before the assassination.

James Tague stated in his book that Ruby was handling and placing the big wagers for Suite 8F Group. HL Hunt was member of Suite 8F Group
