Conspiracy theorist Donald Trump puts us all in danger 

Trump is paranoid and vindictive, and there’s a very real threat that his policies will be sculpted by his ego.

I agree with the author of this article.

Marcotte does not use “conspiracy theorist” in its broad-brush, CIA-inspired sense: people with dissenting opinions the government wants to suppress. She uses “conspiracy theorist” in the more precise and appropriate sense of people who ignore facts and logic in service of their own predetermined conclusions.

The piece, incidentally, makes no reference to Trump’s fact-free JFK “theory” smearing the father of rival Ted Cruz.

I am interested in hearing responses to this article from JFK friends who voted for Trump or are sympathetic to his mission.

CIA & JFKFrom a 5-Star Amazon review of Jefferson Morley’s new ebook, CIA and JFK: The Secret Assassination Files.

The crown jewel of Mr. Morley’s work details his discovery that a retired CIA officer named George Joannides was called back to Washington to stall a re-investigation of the assassination by the House of Representatives in the late 1970s.

As editor of JFK Facts, Morley is the leader of JFK investigative journalism. He

–broke the story of Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly’s JFK lie, which CNN picked up.

–broke the story of the 1,100 JFK files that the CIA has never made public. Politico followed his lead.

–successfully sued the CIA for long-secret JFK files–and the New York Times paid attention.

Morley’s latest investigation, CIA and JFK: The Secret Assassination Files, available on Amazon, provides the fullest account of the role of CIA operations officers in the events leading to the death of JFK.

Morley reveals what’s in the thousands of long-suppressed JFK files scheduled to be declassified in October 2017.

    As many have noted, Hillary was constantly threatening war with Russia via her proposed no-fly zone in Syria. You really had to take her seriously given that she destroyed Libya (now still in a state of chaos five years later) for the purpose of burnishing her foreign policy credentials and was on board with the CIA proxy war against Syria since it began in 2012. Also, she was a tool of Wall Street as shown by the $22 million she received for speeches in 18 months and the fact that Wall Street contributions in the 2016 campaigns went almost entirely to her. Her positions for mass immigration and multilateral trade agreements and against break-up of TBTF banks matched the priorities of Wall Street.

      For the reasons you give, I am inclined to believe it was better that Trump was elected, rather than Hillary. Although I was not able to bring myself to vote for either, and therefore voted for Jill Stein.

      Whatever evil Trump as president may do, it is unlikely to be nearly as bad as the imminent nuclear war with Russia that Hillary seemed all too likely to provoke.

    Jeff, that is one of the more vehement attack dog articles I have read in a long time. I chuckled at her opening sentence. But what the author had to say does not bother me nearly as much as seeing Jeff Morley redirect his focus to the “Trump is like Hitler” bandwagon. Let me know when you get back to JFK Facts.

  3. Thomas Tucker says:

    Yeah, paranoid and vindictive, that’s why he is reaching out to former enemies to be part of his Administration, and why he is not going to pursue Hillary for illegal activities.

  4. Thomas Tucker says:

    Hmm. Not publishing comments that refute your posts makes your objectivity suspect.

      Please tell me what comment had not been published.

        Mr. Morley’s site is a premier resource for students of the JFK murder and its continuing cover up, yet the highly partisan series of posts critical of President-elect Trump during the campaign and now in its aftermath have caused me to frequent JFK Facts less and less. I voted for Mr. Trump. Calling him paranoid and vindictive are baseless charges as far as I can ascertain. What are the specific cases? Where is the proof? In the early days of the transition process I am seeing behavior antithetical to paranoia and vindictiveness. Mr. Trump has extended the hand of detente to Russia and he has demonstrated largess by announcing he will not seek criminal prosecution of Mrs. Clinton. Donald Trump is a phenomenon. It appears he will surprise, baffle and exasperate both his supporters and detractors. In this regard he bears more than a passing resemblance to one John F. Kennedy. It would please me to witness Mr. Trump’s demand of complete and expeditious release of all remaining JFK records. He has called for a new investigation into 911 so perhaps there is hope. I winced a bit when Mr. Trump went into the ditch with the whole Ted Cruz’ father was LHO’s accomplice fiasco. Yet in the heat of a savage primary election contest this dirty trick pales in comparison to what Mrs. Clinton’s emails reveal about her campaign’s dirty tricks against Bernie Sanders. Right now Mr. Trump is becoming immersed in the Deep State. If he is co-opted then all is status quo. If he resists, as did JFK, our nation is then entering uncharted waters. My thanks to Mr. Morley for allowing these comments to appear.

    Hi Jeff, thanks. I see that my comment about Trump reaching out to former enemies etc. from11/26/16 was never published. That’s what I was referring to. His actions actually refute the charge that he is vindictive.

    • jeffmorley says:

      I overlooked your comment over the holiday. I just published it. The allegation that JFK Facts does not publish comments that I disagree with is just that, a theory. There is zero evidence to support it, the embittered bleating of John McAdams notwithwstanding.

      • Thomas Tucker says:

        LOL
        Agreed.

        Ha! Happy Holliday’s. Ironic. Just read earlier today’s news of Trump’s twitter blocking of shall we say ‘dissenting opinions” of his own in conjunction with his lack of addressing the press themselves. I don’t Twitter. Have you had the honor of being #BlockedbyTrumph (not a real thing, yet?)? Not trying to get this posted, just fyi and easier than e-mail access from home which you probably don’t have time to read anyway if your editing here.
        As you’ve said before, Cheers.
