April 26 is the deadline for full disclosure of all of the government’s JFK files, according to this written order of President Trump. Or maybe it isn’t. …
In response to my semi-apology for going political in a JFK blog, Jim writes:
“I’m glad to hear you say this Jeff. I love this blog and the partisanship made me cringe. I didn’t say anything because I’m a free speech absolutist and well, it’s your blog. You can do whatever you wish with it. But in this age where politics has become so many people’s religion, it’s very exhausting that you can’t go anywhere, ANYWHERE, places you think would be politics free, without politics rearing it’s head.”
In the wake of a federal appellate court’s obtuse decision saving the CIA from embarrassment over ancient report on the agency’s epic fail at the Bay of Pigs 50 years ago, it is worth recalling the U.S. government’s latest botched covert action in Cuba.
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?

“Hello, I am a researcher for the Kennedy assassination, and I want to join in on pressuring the CIA to release the files on the assassination, how do I help?”
You can do seven things, Jacob.
