Best of JFK on Facebook

Andrea Skolnick is bringing the JFK story to the Facebook universe with her growing Release JFK Assassination Records Now! page. Unlike a lot of FB pages and JFK sites, this one is helpful to those who want to do something–not just jaw–about the JFK story,

 

The life and death of JFK websites

As JFK Facts reported, one of the earliest and most popular JFK websites, the JFK Education Forum, is scheduled to go out of existence.

At the same time a new site, Assassination of JFK, is launching ambitiously. Read more

Brent P. Lyons visits JFK’s grave site

Brent Lyons with JFK

Continuing the Vince Palamare tradition, my FB friend Brent P. Lyons recently went to Arlington Cemetery here in Washington where the 35th president is buried.

It is a moving place with s wonderful view of Washington. I confess I haven’t been there for too too many years, and I have no excuse. It is a 20 minute ride from my house.

Brent’s picture reminds me to go again soon.

The welcome mat at JFK Facts

JFK Assassination Scenarios is the Facebook page for a closed group that proclaims it is dedicated “solely for the purpose of putting forward YOUR strongest theory regarding WHY JFK was assassinated, What conspiratorial faction was involved, and How the assassination was pulled off.”

Joe Pesci as David Ferrie

Joe Pesci as David Ferrie

Facebook reminds me of one of the pleasures of Oliver Stone’s JFK: brilliant actors in complex roles.

Case in point: Joe Pesci as David Ferrie, the very weird New Orleans pilot who flitted in and out of the JFK assassination.

JFK Facts has obtained a never-before published photo of Ferrie that I will post soon.

#HowtosolveJFK: Join the Twitter bomb attack on JFK secrecy

Franquis Vegas

An invitation from a Facebook friend named Franquis Vegas.

She calls it Operation Liberate Joannides Files Twitter Bomb and it’s going on through Feb. 8.

The theory is JFK “information wants to be free” but government secrecy prevents it.

So inundate the National Archives with Tweets telling them to free our history.

This is how fans save their favorite TV shows. Can social media free the JFK files?

 

Talking JFK in the online cafe

The JFK Assassination Books, Reviews and Discussion Facebook page is an amiable place to hang out thanks to David Rees Jones’s useful editorial rule: “We do not encourage comments on assassination theory unless as a direct result of reviewing the topic.”

This is a pace to ask people for recommendations about JFK books, movies and documentaries, and share your thoughts, all without getting into an argument. You can’t order your coffee from this page yet but presumably Zuckerberg’s minions are working on it. Read more

National security on Facebook

If you want to keep up with the latest U.S. national security disclosures, you can do a lot worse than the National Security Archive Facebook page.

Where else are you going to find an authoritative guide to the U.S. government’s views of Nelson Mandela when he was arrested in 1962.

Continuing the JFK inquiry via social media

At JFK: The Continuing Inquiry Chris Gallop presents a steady stream of links to interesting JFK news and, while I can’t vouch for everything that appears, there seems to be low tolerance for bad information.

Between now and the 50th anniversary of the Warren Report in September 2014, we need more such social media coverage of JFK assassination..

Write in support of full disclosure for JFK

The JFK Assassination 50th Anniversary Facebook page has launched a a letter writing campaign in support of JFK full disclosure.
