‘Last Second in Dallas’: Debate and Agreement

The publication of Tink Thompson’s “Last Second in Dallas,” and a favorable review from San Francisco Chronicle movie critic Mick LaSalle, has triggered a debate about the forensic evidence in the case.

Dr. Randy Robertson has published a critique of Thompson’s work on the Kennedys and Kings web site. On the the Assassination Archives and Research Center, Drs. Gary Aguilar, Dr. Doug DeSalles, and attorney Bill Simpich say Robertson’s critique is based on five factual mistakes.

Unsung JFK Hero: Abe Bolden

I am remiss in not posting this sooner.

This Facebook page is factually sound. #AbrahamBolden was one of the few U.S. government employees who responded professionally to the assassination of JFK. For his service, he was slandered. It’s time for justice for #AbrahamBolden.

Perception management: public relations and the JFK story

Mike Kilroy, communications executive in Los Angeles, has some interesting things to say about the JFK assassination story and the art of public relations. In a presentation to a group of young professionals in the communications industry, Kilroy dissected how the story that President Kennedy had been killed by a pro-Castro communist was disseminated on November 22, 1963. It’s a story of perception management.

The Truth and Reconciliation Committee needs your help. The Committee, consisting of 60 people (including the author) are calling on Congress to re-open the investigation of the four political assassinations in the 1960s: (JFK, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy.)

CLICK HERE to read the Joint Statement.

CLICK HERE for Calls to Action.

“The consequences still haunt our nation,” says Adam Walinsky, former speechwriter for RFK.

The Committee needs you to sign a petition telling Nancy Pelosi to act.

The joint statement calls for Congress to establish firm oversight on the release of all government documents related to the Kennedy presidency and assassination, as mandated by the JFK Records Collection Act of 1992. This public transparency law has been routinely defied by the CIA and other federal agencies. The Trump White House has allowed the CIA to continue its defiance of the law, even though the JFK Records Act called for the full release of relevant documents in 2017

JFK’s last birthday: Gifts, champagne and wandering hands on the presidential yacht 

On May 29, 1963, Kennedy and about two dozen others boarded the 104-foot Sequoia, the presidential yacht, for a dinner party cruise down the Potomac River. It was a family-and-friends-only affair. Aside from a few Secret Service agents, the roster of guests gleamed with a touch of Hollywood — actors David Niven (“Separate Tables” and “The Pink Panther”) and Peter Lawford (a Rat Packer who was married to Patricia Kennedy, the commander in chief’s sister).
