The writings of Vincent J Salandria on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy are historic, foundational, and essential to any serious scholar interested in understanding the real dynamics of the Kennedy murder and its place as a terrible and pivotal moment of the American Century. In his 1967 book Six Seconds in Dallas, Josiah Thompson notes that what he terms the “second generation” of assassination researchers—including Mark Lane, Edward J. Epstein, Harold Weisberg, Raymond Marcus, Léo Sauvage, Richard Popkin—owe “a deep debt to Salandria’s pioneering and largely unsung research.” Thompson is accurate, since Salandria is in the front rank of Warren Commission critics, and the prescience of his analysis is an instruction to all interested people.

Former PBS news anchor Jim Lehrer appeared on the Diane Rehm’s NPR radio program yesterday and talked about his suspicions of conspiracy in the assassination of President Kennedy.
His careful comments broke from the orthodoxies of American journalism.
James Fetzer is an odious, obnoxious man. I met him via JFK assassination discussions and found him knowledgable about certain facts but rather unhinged. He thrived on picking fights. He impugned me as a CIA collaborator who was hiding the truth about deceased undercover operative George Joannides. I reminded him that the allegation was stupid because, if it wasn’t for my reporting, he wouldn’t know anything about Joannides.
I’m happy to report that the courts have punished Fetzer for his vile conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook school shooting.
The focus of the Wisconsin lawsuit was a 455-page book, titled “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook: It Was a FEMA Drill to Promote Gun Control,” which claimed the massacre at Sandy Hook was staged by the federal government to promote tighter gun control measures. Among other things, the book claimed that the school had been abandoned years before a gunman killed 20 first graders and six staff members.

I make a strong claim about the CIA and Lee Harvey Oswald in this video. I think the new JFK files corroborate my observation. But I’d like to get independent verification, preferably from a reputable fact-checking service like Snopes.Read more
Last month, the American Truth and Reconciliation Committee issued an open letter call for re-opening four of the most painful incidents in American history. Now you can now add your call to the call at the Committee’s web site: Americantruthnow.org.
A group of over 60 prominent citizens aims to convene an American Truth and Reconciliation Committee to bring out the facts of the four major assassinations that changed the course of the country and the world—those of President John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Senator Robert F. Kennedy. A multi-part action plan has been set in motion, including a petition to Congress and a pubic inquest.

Check in with me here next Monday, January 21, Martin Luther King Day. I’m proud to be joining with lots of other people in the unveiling a major petition effort signed by more than 50 prominent American citizens.

After reading the statement, you’ll be able to join this important campaign by adding your name to the petition.
The president also said he doesn’t “regret” suggesting Cruz’s father was involved in the assassination effort of President John F. Kennedy, which was among his more controversial statements regarding the Texas senator as they both vied for the GOP presidential nomination.
