JFK hoaxer vouches for Trump’s JFK hoax

Why did Donald Trump, the mentally challenged Republican presidential nominee, revive his discredited hoax that Ted Cruz’s father associated with accused presidential assassin Lee Oswald?

Maybe because Judyth Baker, an unfortunate woman who pretends she was Oswald’s girlfriend in 1963, told him the story was true. Baker is peddling her hoax on Facebook to support Trump’s hoax.

He is as delusional as she is, and he might become the powerful man in the world. It would be sad if it wasn’t sickening.

 

 

 

Reporter’s tape exposes Bill O’Reilly’s big JFK fib


In which CNN picks up on a JFK Facts story.

What Trump’s JFK theories reveal about the candidate

TrumpLee Harvey Oswald alone and unaided killed President Kennedy, according to Donald Trump–but Ted Cruz’s dad helped him do it.

In other words, Trump has no fixed opinion on who killed the 35th president of the United States. He is conspiratorial but he is not a conspiracy theorist. He says whatever serves his purposes in the moment, which is not to say his views are unimportant.

The ’28 pages’: Congress releases report on alleged Saudi 9/11 tie

The Congress has made public “the 28 pages,” the long expurgated section of the 9/11 Commission report dealing with Saudi Arabia’s role in the events leading up to the attack.

On first reading, the pages show that U.S. official suspected, but could not prove, that senior officials in the kingdom might have been involved in supporting the hijackers.

This shows that long-secret JFK records can also be forced into the open despite governmental opposition.

Under pressure from the victims’ families and lawmakers, President Barack Obama said in April his administration would declassify the pages.

Retired CIA analyst advises Langley: release all JFK files in 2017

On Friday, I talked about the JFK story with retired CIA analyst  Brian Latell, who had  a clear message for his former employer: release all the JFK files without redactions.

Would it make any difference if we knew who killed JFK?

Pablo asks a good question:

Dallas shooting kills five police officers

Dallas shootingsThe country’s legacy of gun violence on terrible display.

The shootings, only a few blocks from Dealey Plaza, where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, transformed an emotional but peaceful rally into a scene of carnage and chaos, and they injected a volatile new dimension into the anguished debate over racial disparities in American criminal justice.

Flip de Mey’s take on Oswald’s rifle

I find this a plausible theory.

“‘There were indeed shots fired from the sniper’s nest and they were more than likely fired with the Carcano….”

Why I’m taking JFK to the Supreme Court

According to an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court filed this week in Washington, the language of the Freedom of Information Act is clear:

The court may assess against the United States reasonable attorney’s fees and other litigation costs reasonably incurred in any case under this section in which the complainant has substantially prevailed.

The Obama Justice Department doesn’t want to admit it but, in Morley v. CIA, yours truly substantially prevailed. Will the Supreme Court be interested?

It’s a long shot, but I try to think like Steph Curry; sometimes a long shot is worth taking.

21 JFK cops who heard a grassy knoll shot

Grassy knoll aftermath

A cop runs toward the grassy knoll on November 22.

Strange but true:

At least two dozen, and perhaps as many as four dozen, of the witnesses to the assassination of President Kennedy in November 1963 thought at least one gunshot came from in front of the presidential motorcade, a claim rejected by the Warren Commission and most U.S. news organizations..

Richard Charnin has proposed a statistical proof of a shot from the front.

Another way to think about the matter is to review the eyewitness accounts, especially those of people with crime scene training.

Why did Oswald deny shooting President Kennedy?

If Oswald genuinely had been motivated by a desire to get his name in the history books, he could be expected to boast about his crime rather than repeatedly deny that he was responsible. Perhaps he changed his mind after he was arrested.

Exclusive: JFK investigator on how CIA stonewalled Congress

Dan Hardway

Dan Hardway

In a new sworn declaration filed in federal court, former JFK investigator Dan Hardway tells the story of how the CIA stonewalled him and other investigators for the House Select Committee of Assassinations in 1978.

Hardway’s first-person account is perhaps the clearest accounts of how the CIA obstructed Congress’s attempt to investigate JFK’s assassination in 1978 since Gaeton Fonzi’s book, The Last Investigation. Hardway adds new detail to the story Fonzi told by detailing the obstructionist tactics of George Joannides that he personally experienced.
