J Morley Explores Radical Right and the JFKA

Recommended Posts

I am not a fan of the "Jospeh Milteer perped the JFKA" theory, but Morley is one of the dons of the JFKA research community, and so see below. 

I do not see Milteer, or most actors, having the resources to perp the JFKA, then the follow-up RFK1A, and then decades of snuff jobs on true investigations.  IMHO, that kind of resource points back to the US intel state. 

But hey, I like to see other points of view:

JFK The Enduring Secret


Jeff Crudele’s podcast, “The Enduring Secret,” explores the radical right groups of the 1960's that clearly had great motive to murder President Kennedy. Emerging, alongside civil rights leaders, as a prime target for ire of white racists and anti-communists, President Kennedy lived in the crosshairs of violent opponents. One white militant named Joseph Milteer spoke of a plot to kill JFK just two weeks before the president went to Dallas. The connection of JFK’s assassination to the radical right is little explored—until now.

Jefferson Morley responded to me on Twitter one time telling me that he (Morley) admired Lyndon Johnson who he thinks has no role in the JFK assassination. I feel sure Morley is so chummy about LBJ because of the passage of civil rights bills and Great Society legislation under Johnson (my take is Democratic liberals deeply suspected LBJ in the JFK assassination in real time and Johnson's response was to carry their treasured political agenda).

LBJ hated the Kennedys a more than Joseph Milteer did! LBJ would regularly make death threats about the Kennedys among his close personal friends. in fact, one time on June 29, 1961 LBJ had such a volcanic argument with the Kennedys in the Oval Office that Secret Service agent Abraham Bolden reported Vice President LBJ to his Secret Service superiors AS A SECURITY THREAT TO PRESIDENT KENNEDY!!


 "I'll cut his throat if it's the last thing I do."

 Robert Caro describes the LBJ-RFK relationship post 1960 Democratic convention, where RFK had moved heaven and earth attempting to keep LBJ off the 1960 Democratic ticket. Caro: 

John Connally, who during long days of conversation with this author was willing to answer almost any question put to him, no matter how delicate the topic, wouldn't answer when asked what Johnson said about Robert Kennedy. When the author pressed him, he finally said flatly: "I am not going to tell you what he said about him." During the months after the convention, when Johnson was closeted alone back in Texas with an old ally he would sometimes be asked about Robert Kennedy. He would reply with a gesture. Raising his big right hand, he would draw the side of it across the neck in a slowing, slitting movement. Sometimes that gesture would be his only reply; sometimes, as during a meeting with Ed Clark in Austin, he would say, as his hand moved across his neck, "I'll cut his throat if it's the last thing I do."  [Robert Caro, The Passage of Power, p. 140]

I wrote this essay some 25 years ago that covers some of these guys. I guess I should update it with newer info.


Great essay DB and thanks for your collegial contribution. 

I really can't critique your work, as I do not know enough about the topics you cover. There are certainly a lot of tantalizing clues. 

My overall take is I do not think, if the JFKA and RFK1A were perped by fringe white racists...there would be a 60-year government snuff job on true investigations into the assassinations, or the deep-sixing of the JFK Records. 

The whole backstory on LHO, the trip to Russia etc N.O. and M.C. ...strike me as an intel-state op. 

And why have the Biden Administration and AG Merrick Garland gone to extraordinary lengths of craven subterfuge and chicanery to suppress the JFK Records---if some long-forgotten racists perped the JFKA and RFK1A? 

Also...the bogus JFK autopsy...organized by white racists? 

As usual, just IMHO. 

But your essay is great and a reminder of how even California of the 1950s and 1960s had pockets of right-wing extremists and very conservative governments.

Good topic, Ben, enlightening essay David, thanks.

My interest is piqued when DB and Tosh raise points of intersection with known suspects (Martino,Santo T, Loran Hall misleadingly?) or state actors Gale, del Valle…several directions for research?

Specifically YAF is mentioned raising the presence of the notorious Buckley Family , a quintessential group that straddled the Right and the CIA, or politics and violent covert action. Relevant here is an alleged visit of a  Letelier assassin to a Buckley office in NYC days before(Donald Freed). If proven does this indicate Guilt or Guilt by Association?

Here in Australia, the Buckley Familyoil company Magellan linked up with Esso in a play that led directly to the dismise of Gough Whitlam in 1974-75, through the oil company Exoil linked to crypto-fascist Queensland Premier Joh Bjelke Petersen(Esso paid Exoil $400,000+ to change its name to Oilmin when Esso became Exxon. Oilmin and Magellan had Palm Valley gas now feeding Alice Springs. And Bjelkeupset the balance in our Senate upon the death of  Labor senator).

Thanks for the opportunity  to put some of this on the record.
