When I was coaching college basketball, I used to teach my players how to properly defend the player in front of them. The instructions included that if a defender want to stay in front of a swift ball handler, they should keep their eyes on his midsection because he can go nowhere else without his midsection. Most defenders can stay in front of their opponent by watching the midsection.

Secret memo shows president demanded UFO files 10 days before death

 

By Daily Mail Reporter

 

An uncovered letter written by John F Kennedy to the head of the CIA shows that the president demanded to be shown highly confidential documents about UFOs 10 days before his assassination.

 

The secret memo is one of two letters written by JFK asking for information about the paranormal on November 12 1963, which have been released by the CIA for the first time.

 

John F. Kennedy

Cover of John F. Kennedy

 

 

 

Author William Lester said the CIA released the documents to him under the Freedom of Information Act after he made a request while researching his new book ‘A Celebration of Freedom: JFK and the New Frontier.’

“The one thing the conspirators did not want to happen was for civilians to discover the plane and the evidence of the explosion.”

by L.C. Vincent

The story of the “elimination” of John F. Kennedy Jr. was laid out in an outstanding publication entitled Media Bypass (before taken over and subverted by the CIA, much as they did to Popular Science) .

According to their research, there was a meeting in Bill Clinton’s Oval Office. In attendance were Bill and Hillary, George H. W. Bush, and the head of the FBI, along with an unnamed agent of the Mossad. The meeting was held to discuss and decide the best way to eliminate John F. Kennedy Jr. All of the participants had their “reasons.”

JFK: An Open Letter to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. | Veterans Today

When I published “JFK: What we know now that we didn’t know then” (21 November 2011),

 

I had become convinced by the discovery of the obfuscated face of a figure in the doorway area of a famous photograph taken by AP photographer James “Ike” Altgens (technically known as the “Altgens6″), together with having recently learned that Lee Oswald had told Will Fritz (the homicide detective who had interrogated him) that he had been “out with Bill Shelley in front” during the assassination, that this figure had to have been Lee himself.

The only reason to have altered the photo would have been that someone had been there who should not have been there, where the obvious candidate for that role was the designated “patsy”.

 

We now believe that that person was actually Bill Shelley, no doubt erased on the presumption that, if it were discovered that Bill Shelley had been there, too many questions would have been raised about what Lee had said to Fritz.

“The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices – to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to . . . The Twilight Zone.” — Rod Serling, 1960

As we approach the 49th observance of the assassination of JFK, I have been invited to speak at The Roxie Theatre in San Francisco on 22 November 2012 and explain what Oliver Stone got right and got wrong in his monumental film, “JFK”. Most of the film is right, where Oliver Stone has given us the most accurate, complete and comprehensive presentation of what actually happened in Dealey Plaza on 22 November 1963 that has ever been provided to the American public though the mass media.

JFK Special 4: Oswald was in the doorway, after all! | Veterans Today

June 12, 2012 Leave a comment

By Jim Fetzer and Richard Hooke

Those who have been following the “JFK Special: Oswald was in the doorway, after all!” series are familiar with much of the evidence that has established that Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of JFK, actually had a cast iron alibi, because he was captured in a famous photograph taken by AP photographer James “Ike” Altgens, which appeared in most papers the following day, but in some cases, such as The Sheboygan Press, which is now a morning paper but was then published in the afternoon–assuming that this is the actual issue that was published and not a substitute–appeared on Friday, 22 November 1963, the day of the assassination itself:

Altgens6 and Altgens7

Because Altgens shot a sequence of photographs that day, they are commonly referred to by their number in the sequence. Thus, the photograph we have been discussing and analyzing, which is seen on the left, is also known as “Altgens6″, while another photograph, which is also attributed to him, known as “Altgens7″, was published along side of it in The Sheboygan Press. Although it is not widely known, Altgens7, which shows Clint Hill on the running board at the back of the limousine, appears to be a fabricated photograph.

Photographic Evidence of Bullet Hole in JFK Limousine Windshield ‘Hiding in Plain Sight’ by Douglas P. Horne

June 4, 2012 Leave a comment

In 2009, I believed I had discovered new evidence in the JFK assassination never reported by anyone else: convincing photography of the through-and-through bullet hole in the windshield of the JFK limousine that had been reported by six credible witnesses. I revisited that evidence today, and am more convinced than ever that the bullet hole in the limousine windshield is what I am looking at in those images. But the readers of this piece don’t have to take my word for it – you can examine the images yourself, and make up your own minds. The evidence is contained in one of the banned, suppressed episodes of Nigel Turner’s The Men Who Killed Kennedy – episode 7 in the series, called “The Smoking Guns,” which was aired in 2003, and then removed from circulation by The History Channel in response to intense political pressure by former LBJ aides Jack Valenti and Bill Moyers.

I’ll tell you about the stunning evidence I have found in that episode at the end of this article, but first we need to set the stage by reviewing the eyewitness testimony about the damage to the windshield observed the day of JFK’s assassination, on Friday, November 22nd, 1963; as well as three days later, on Monday, November 25th, 1963.

Douglas P. Horne, who served as the Chief Analyst for Military Records for the ARRB (formally, The Assassination Records Review Board), a five member civilian panel that was entrusted with the mission of locating and declassifying documents and records held by the CIA, the FBI, the Secret Service, ONI, and other federal agencies under The JFK Records Act (which was passed by Congress in the wake of the resurgence of interest in the death of JFK, which was brought about by Oliver Stone’s monumental film, “JFK”), has become a personal hero of mine. Those in that category are few and far between, but include JFK, RFK, Mohammed Ali, Bill Russell, and other figures from JFK assassination research, including David W. Mantik, M.D., Ph.D., John P. Costella, Ph.D., and Jack White, who have been among my closest associates and collaborators for more than 20 years.

This is a sequel to “JFK Special: Oswald was the Man in the Doorway, after all!” (25 January 2012), which was co-authored by two of us. We are going to look further at the Altgens photo and the reasons why the evidence shows that Doorman has to have been Lee Harvey Oswald and could not have been Billy Lovelady. But, we are also going to look further at the images of Billy Lovelady that were taken after the assassination, and it will show clearly that manipulation, alteration, and fakery were involved. Billy Lovelady even masqueraded as Doorway Man, and it was a concerted effort, for which he had help.

To a great extent, this analysis is based on the new observations of K.D. Ruckman, a Canadian researcher, who was interviewed by Dr. Fetzer recently on his internet radio program, “The Real Deal, on 20 February 2012. That program is archived at radiofetzer.blogspot.com. We will begin with the work of Ralph Cinque and add discussion of the contributions of K.D. Ruckman as appropriate, especially in the final three sections of this study.

So, let’s begin by going back to the doorway of the Book Depository as seen in the Altgens photo. This image, by Robert Groden, may be the clearest one we have. Some say that the face of Doorman is that of Billy Lovelady, but even the House Subcommittee on Assassinations wasn’t sure. They said:

…..His code name was “Dazzle” – a Secret Service agent charged with protecting first lady Jackie Kennedy.

For Clint Hill, the job meant being present for some of the most painful and poignant moments of the Kennedy family’s life.

[...]

The memory haunts him still. “There was some material from the president’s head that had gone off to the right rear,” Hill told Guthrie. “And she had got – come up on the back of the car, trying to retrieve that material. She didn’t know I was there. And so when she came up in the car, I finally got a hold of her and helped her get it into the backseat. When I did that, the president’s body fell to its left into her lap.”

Explosive Jackie O tapes ‘reveal how she believed LBJ killed JFK & had affair w/ movie star’

English: Oswald in Minsk

Image via Wikipedia

Jackie Onassis believed that Lyndon B Johnson and a cabal of Texas tycoons were involved in the assassination of her husband John F Kennedy, ‘explosive’ recordings are set to reveal. The secret tapes will show that the former first lady felt that her husband’s successor was at the heart of the plot to murder him.

She became convinced that the then vice president, along with businessmen in the South, had orchestrated the Dallas shooting, with gunman Lee Harvey Oswald – long claimed to have been a lone assassin – merely part of a much larger conspiracy.

Texas-born Mr Johnson, who served as the state’s governor and senator, completed Mr Kennedy’s term and went on to be elected president in his own right. The tapes were recorded with leading historian Arthur Schlesinger Jnr within months of the assassination on November 22, 1963, and had been sealed in a vault at the Kennedy Library in Boston.

The then Mrs Kennedy, who went on to marry Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, had ordered that they should not be released until 50 years after her death, with some reports suggesting she feared that her revelations might make her family targets for revenge…

Speaking to an aide three days before he was shot dead in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, JFK eerily comments on what would become the day of his funeral

‘Monday?,’ he says. ‘Well that’s a tough day.’

‘It’s a hell of a day, Mr. President,’ a staffer replies.

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum is releasing the last 45 hours of more than 260 hours of privately recorded meetings, conversations and phone calls.

They include discussions about the conflict in Vietnam, Soviet relations and the race to space, plans for the 1964 Democratic Convention and re-election strategy. There are also tender moments with his children.

But some of the material captured on the cassettes is still deemed so sensitive to national security they have to remain classified.

Governor Jesse Ventura

During his recent “Conspiracy Theory” program on the assassination, broadcast on TruTV on Friday, 19 November 2010, Jesse Ventura had the opportunity to talk with Marina, who did not want her face shown on television because she lives in fear for the life of her children – nearly 50 years later.

Jesse had 2.5 hours to talk with her, however, and she said that, although at one time she had thought Lee had done it, she was now convinced he was innocent and had been working undercover for the government.

This conjecture had even been confirmed by the Attorney General for Texas, Waggoner Carr, who had launched his own investigation and found that Lee was working as an informant for the FBI, had been assigned informant number 179, and was being paid $200 per month right up to the time of the assassination.

The President Who Told The Truth

(Video +Text)

The inspiration for these quotes came from a documentary entitled Evidence of Revision. It’s a series of five videos, each about an hour and a half long that you can find on Google Video. I would highly recommend finding the time to watch it. Once you do – you’ll be left with some strong doubt as to who killed this man. More significant to the here and now – you’ll realize that the completion of a Presidential Commission of inquiry does not mean that the public is in possession of the truth – I’m no 9/11 conspiracy theorist – but that doesn’t mean I have to consider the commissions report to be anything more than toilet paper.

Here are some JFK quotes that you’ve likely never heard. I would ask the question – when will we ever hear a President utter such words again?

When Karl Marx Worked For Horace Greeley (JFK mentoned this in 1961)

When Karl Marx Worked For Horace Greeley (JFK mentoned this in 1961)

American Heritage Magazine ^ | April 1957 | William Harlan Hale

Posted on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 4:59:38 AM by No One Special

On Saturday morning, October 25, 1851, Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune , entrenched after a decade of existence as America’s leading Whig daily, appeared with twelve pages rather than its usual eight. The occasion was too noteworthy to be passed over without comment by the paper itself. So a special editorial was written—probably by Greeley’s young managing editor, the brisk, golden-whiskered Charles A. Dana—to point it out.

Besides a “press of advertisements.” the editorial ran, this morning’s enlarged paper contained “articles from some foreign contributors that are especially worthy of attention.” Among these were “a letter from Madame Belgioioso, upon the daily and domestic life of the Turks, and another upon Germany by one of the clearest and most vigorous writers that country has produced—no matter what may be the judgment of the critical upon his public opinions in the sphere of political and social philosophy.”

Turning the pages to see who this most clear and vigorous German might be, readers glanced past such items as a “Grand Temperance Rally in the igth Ward“; a Philadelphia story headlined “Cruelty of a Landlord—Brutality of a Husband”: a Boston campaign telegram announcing a Whig demonstration “in favor of Daniel Webster for President.” Then they reached a long article entitled “Revolution and Counter-Revolution,” over the by-line, Karl Marx.

“The first act of the revolutionary drama on the Continent of Europe has closed,” it began upon a somber organ tone; ”“The ‘powers that were’ before the hurricane of 1848………………………

As the official dedication of the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Washington, D.C. approaches, liberals in the media are in damage control over a revelation about the civil rights leader from an unlikely source—Caroline Kennedy, daughter of JFK and Jackie Kennedy.

Her new book, Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy, makes it abundantly clear that Jack and Bobby Kennedy, as well as Jackie, saw through the public façade of the Reverend King and knew him to be a proven liar about his communist connections and a scoundrel in terms of his personal life. Jackie called King a “phony” in the taped conversations that form the basis of the book.

This has created a dilemma for the media……………

The Death of Camelot

October 31, 2010 Leave a comment

Fifty years ago, American government — even American society — entered into a wonderland of youth, prettiness, chic, and charisma. John Kennedy had defeated Richard Nixon in the presidential debates or at least JFK defeated Nixon in the eyes of the millions of Americans who watched the debates — those who heard them on the radio felt that Nixon had won.

The election of 1960 was incredibly close and could have torn the country apart, except that mean-spirited Nixon unlike Nobel Prize winner Gore chose to concede and spare the nation a political civil war.A glorious age was about to begin! The sophisticates and academicians — the aristocrats of the republic — would now guide us to a new Golden Age. John Kennedy was handsome, young, and married to a wife with movie star looks. Television was endemic in American life, and color television on large screens would very soon replace the small black-and-white television in the living room. Kennedy inspired us or at least we were told that he inspired us over and over again, but it was hard to put one’s finger on exactly what Kennedy actually did.

He quickly fumbled his meeting in quasi-summit in Vienna with Khrushchev, showing just how much less our young president knew about the world than Eisenhower, the balding older man who guided a coalition of democracies in a crusade against Hitler and then presided for eight years over a peaceful, respected America. Kennedy horribly mishandled the Bay of Pigs Invasion, leaving freedom-fighters to face Castro’s Gulag so JFK would not have to face too many questions.
