It’s astonishing how tight a lid the major media has kept on the JFK assassination over the last 50 years. As a long-time writer on the subject, I’ve taken particular note of the parade of fake whistleblowers luring the unsuspecting researchers into rabbit holes salted with time bombs. Every generation brings a new wave of manufactured disinfo and the noise-to-signal ratio has been immense. All the noise is evidence of a conspiracy. The media was consolidated into a private cartel prior to WWII and now serves propaganda and pablum, and is no longer capable of investigating deep politics in America as they are wired into the national security state.
After more than five decades, however, like a scene out of The Bridge on the River Kwai, the muddy water is descending on the JFK assassination and exposing lines leading into JM/Wave, the CIA’s largest station outside Langley when Kennedy was killed, with over 2,000 professional mercenaries on its payroll. Once JFK approved a secret assassination program inside the station, that very same squad ended up killing him in a tragedy worthy of Sophocles or Shakespeare. The last remaining data dump of documents still being held for reasons of national security is due out later this year, and that release guarantees new revelations, as well as new rabbit holes salted with time bombs. But rest assured, the crime was committed by Ted Shackley, Bill Harvey, David Morales, and John Roselli, and covered-up by Allen Dulles, James Angleton and J. Edgar Hoover.
One of the more interesting dots I was recently able to connect was eyewitness Richard Carr’s testimony concerning two men he saw standing in the window of the 6th Floor Texas Book Depository during the assassination, and how much they resembled Ted Shackely and David Morales. Carr got a closer look a few minutes later, when he witnessed them exit the back of the building and jump into a waiting Rambler station wagon. Miraculously, Carr survived two assassination attempts and was even able to kill one of his assailants.
Whether you are new to the case, or a long-time researcher, you’ll find material in this book not covered anywhere else. As an insider in counterculture media, I was allowed a closer examination of many of the leading whistleblowers and concluded many were really spooks salting time bombs. I also believe the case needs to be distilled and not buried in a blizzard of details, so I try to keep the word length down to the minimum necessary to round all the necessary bases. Instead of letting the noise distract or mislead, I follow disinfo to its source, and study the structure of the disinfo matrix for clues. Everyone brings something to the table, especially the spooks.
Twenty-three days before the assassination of JFK in Dallas, Lee Harvey Oswald walked into the FBI offices in Dallas and delivered a handwritten note for agent James Hosty. After JFK’s murder, Hosty was ordered to destroy this note and it took many years to uncover what that note might have said and why it had to be destroyed immediately after the assassination. The official story given by Hosty was it contained “some sort of threat,” but that later changed to the more ludicrous: “stay away from my wife.”
In fact, the note most likely claimed that a four-man assassination team had assembled in Chicago for the purpose of assassinating JFK on his way to Soldier Field for the annual Army-Air Force football game, an assassination scheduled to take place on November 2. We only know all this because a Chicago-based secret service agent named Abraham Bolden was asked to investigate the allegation and two men were placed under surveillance and soon picked up later that day and brought to the Secret Service offices in Chicago, and then mysteriously released without being conclusively identified for the record. These two suspects may have been John Roselli and Bill Harvey, or maybe those were the guys not picked up, but it’s clear the two suspects were spooks just from the way the investigation unfolded without arrest or noticeable investigative paperwork. Bolden only knew that the tip had come from an FBI informant named “Lee.” And he later turned whistleblower and paid the price. More on that later.
By strange coincidence, another chance encounter had put the assassination mission in jeopardy, as the patsy had inadvertently prematurely come under investigation. And that patsy bore an amazing resemblance to Lee Harvey Oswald. His name was Thomas Arthur Vallee and he’d been overheard making threats against JFK at a diner, where he was confronted by an undercover officer who reported the incident to Chicago Secret Service.
Two Chicago police officers were sent to investigate Vallee, and they both ended up rising rapidly through the ranks: Daniel Groth and Peter Schurla. Right around the time JFK cancelled his Chicago trip (just an hour before he was due to take off), Groth and Schurla went to see Vallee.
He told them he’d been assigned to a U2 base in Japan (just like Oswald) and had a small arsenal and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. He was a devoted member of the John Birch Society, which means he likely believed JFK was a communist agent bent on destruction of the United States.
Photos of his vehicle revealed that Vallee had a license plate that was protected by national security. He was also a certified mental patient with a metal plate in his head and a history of emotional breakdowns.
Since there was also another plot based in Miami one wonders if an ex-Marine from a U2 base in Japan was also being moved into a tall office building overlooking a parade route because that’s what happened to both Oswald and Vallee during the month of November. More likely, however, the Miami plot would have involved a Cuban patsy and there were so many to choose from. But the locations of Chicago, Miami and Dallas are telling because that’s where Dulles and Angelton felt they had the most control over the situation.
And what about Bolden? Well, he tried to testify before the Warren Commission. But before that happened, he was set up on a bribery and attempted murder charge. Bolden served 39 months in jail and two and a half years probation. Afterwards he would write a book asserting the assassination was a conspiracy and the Secret Service was a racist and corrupt organization that overlooked boozing and broads on duty for the elite insiders. And it also later emerged the key figure in setting Bolden up to prevent his Warren Commission testimony was none other than John Roselli, one of the three assassins of JFK. Roselli’s stool pigeon, who testified against Bolden, later recanted and claimed all accusations had been coerced in exchange for a lenient sentence on an unrelated gambling charge.
Some day Bolden’s name will be added to the rolls of great African-American patriots who suffered greatly in the name of righteousness.
Few expected Abraham Lincoln would become the 16th president. The newly-formed Republican Party had better-known options: Salmon Chase, William Seward, Simon Cameron, Edward Bates, William Dayton, Ben Wade or Thaddeus Stevens, but Lincoln was the new-comer compromise selection of a radical Republican cabal that took supreme power in North America after Democrats seceded, abandoning their positions of power in Congress and the Cabinet.
Lincoln arrived into a hornet’s nest not unlike the situation facing John F. Kennedy when the Bay of Pigs dropped in his lap upon arrival in the White House. The Bay of Pigs was supposed to be a catalyst for full-on invasion of Cuba, but once Kennedy saw the operation had little popular support in Cuba, he pulled stakes, infuriating our Military Industrial Complex and the CIA spooks who’d worked on that operation.
The story you’ve heard of Fort Sumter is not entirely correct, nor is the history of the Civil War nor Lincoln’s assassination, at least not as related by Ken Burns.
Slavery was not the real issue that sparked secession, it was the right of states to withdraw from the union. Do you think any state would have signed that original agreement to form a union if they thought it was permanent and irrevocable? The South firmly believed every state had a legal right to secede for any reason it wanted. The South didn’t seek an armed rebellion and were eager to negotiate any peaceful, legal solution.
The accurate part of Spielberg’s Lincoln is it shows how all attempts by the South to make peace were rebuffed by Lincoln. And the entire incident with Fort Sumter that sparked the armed conflict was carefully instigated as a provocation, the same way all our wars begin: some wag-the-dog operation for the press to go hysterical over.
The truth is the Radical Republicans didn’t want a peaceful solution, they wanted bloody war, and they’d been baiting the Democrats in Congress for months to secede so they could start one, and the first thing they did when Lincoln arrived in the White House was convince him to stage a provocation for armed conflict, telling him this was required to keep border states like Maryland from joining the rebellion. Baltimore was north of Washington, so secession of Maryland would leave Congress virtually surrounded. Lincoln was a novice, so all he could do was take the advice of more experienced men around him, much the same way JFK was stuck under the thumb of the Pentagon when he’d first arrived. But as time went on, both men found their personal centers of gravity, and began to drift off the designated tack their party bigwigs were trying to steer.
When the smoke cleared after the bloody Civil War, the big winners were the banks, J.P. Morgan, and Jay Gould. Follow the money.
Dag Hammarskjold came from a long line of Royally-appointed ministers serving the Swedish Kings and Queens, and rose to the top of Sweden’s central bank. He helped design the Marshall Plan, which shaped Europe’s future for decades after WWII.
At a young age, Dag got tapped to lead the United Nations, and swiftly garnered a reputation for defusing violence and promoting peace. He was especially adept at defusing conflict in the Middle East.
It’s difficult to imagine where we might be had people like him and JKF, RFK, MLK, and other prophets for peace not been killed. For Dag, this happened in 1961, while he was trying to stop a war in Africa. Although many witnesses saw a plane shoot down his plane, these facts were seldom spoken about, at least in the North American media, until this week that is, and now only because some document reveals the NSA was monitoring the shoot-down in real time. Don’t expect the media to do much with this story, they are too busy following Hollywood and Hip Hop celebrities around.
The two most chilling details I encountered are that Dag’s corpse was apparently the only one not severely burned at the scene, and that an ace of spaces card had been tucked into his lapel. It went down as an “accident.”
Whenever I encounter the death card in use, I think of one of its greatest proponents, Edward Lansdale. Like Dag, he was not born to the aristocracy, but after joining the OSS and becoming a ruthless spook, he rose fast in the ranks of key managers, so much so they put him in charge of smuggling the stolen gold back from the east and into select bank vaults in the west, so that it could be used to foment war for profit around the world and stem the tide of democracy, instead of being returned to its rightful owners in China, Korea, Vietnam and other countries Japan had just viciously plundered.
If you want to know how deep the rabbit hole goes, look no farther than Edward Lansdale, because his resume sheds key light on how war for profit really works. Among other things, Lansdale was huge into psyop and black magic, which is what that ace of spades represents.
Lansdale was moved early to Vietnam to clear the way for the US to capture the opium monopoly because the French were about to lose it to the Communists. Soon the Phoenix Program would commence, our countries largest mass extermination campaign since the Indian Wars. Funny how Lansdale’s top aide at the time turned out to be a spy for North Vietnam.
William Colby ran the Phoenix Program and one of his top aides became a Nebraska State Senator named John DeCamp, who told me he went back to Vietnam years later and discovered the person in charge of making the list of who was going to be assassinated next turned out to be a North Vietnamese spy as well. Which leaves the question, just who was getting assassinated and why? We killed over 40,000 people, and it now appears most of them were innocent, peaceful people who just happened to be tribal leaders. Getting rid of them was just a way to psyop the population into taking sides, any side. When you play the war for profit game one side is as good as another, long as they keep buying bullets and bombs.
I’m not claiming Lansdale was behind the murder, or even involved in any way. Just that when I saw that detail about the death card, Lansdale flashed in my brain. For all I know, there could be a deeper connection because these two certainly played crucial roles in world history, although on opposing sides of a great dialectical divide.
The alternative media is officially dead. Although hundreds of independent newspapers flourished in the late 1960s, most did not survive the 1970’s and those that did were absorbed into the corporate media system, becoming editorially hollow advertising cash cows while they lasted. The whole point of creating your own newspaper in the 1960s was because all the media were spewing status-quo propaganda. Even now, with the internet dismantling print media and offering unlimited options for serving content, the so-called “alternative” news sites never question the pathetic official 9/11 story or suggest a CIA/Mafia/Pentagon/Texas Oil Cartel conspiracy murdered JFK.
The op to disarm and dismantle the counterculture media was prolonged and the battle took place on many fronts. I started my own newspaper in 1968 in Urbana, Illinois, and was swiftly targeted by a State Narcotics Task Force, who set me up on bogus charges, while rousting me out of high school in handcuffs and shaming my parents at the local country club. That was one of the fronts: round up and imprison the alpha male founders of the alternative media.
I’d hung an Eldridge Cleaver for President poster in my second floor bedroom window and then went downstairs to see how it looked from the street. I’ll never forget my dad’s reaction to seeing that poster while he was hitting his practice golf ball in the side yard. Man, he took off full speed and ripped that poster out of the window and told me never to do that again. He said it sent the wrong message to our neighbors and we’d just recently moved into the neighborhood.
Funny how back in the day many of the brightest journalists wanted to get into investigative reporting. The Washington Post, a propaganda tool of the CIA decided to capture the center of energy on investigative journalism so they served up Nixon, maybe because he gave some of the stolen gold the Japanese had hidden in the Philippines back to China to buy his detente move. For whatever reason, Yale graduate Bob Woodward, a spook and secret bisexual, was transformed into a Knight in Shining Armor to lead the charge of investigators everywhere…..that’s a second front. Use your inside position to manufacture fake whistle blowers who initially release real solid info to establish credentials, but quickly switch to some absurd rabbit hole, like we never landed on the moon, lizard shape-shifting aliens rule the world, chemtrails, Elvis is alive, or Sandy Hook never happened.
I get the feeling the current generation of journalists cringe at the mere mention of 9/11. Although they realize the system is rigged by corrupt politics hidden from view, they also realize showing interest in that corruption is a sure way to end a promising journalism career. Since a handful of companies own the entire system, if you want a job (and jobs are really hard to find), better not be rocking the boat.
Of course, back in the late 1960s, you could rent a 4-bedroom house in Urbana for $150 a month, and work a minimum wage job and survive. But during the last fifty years, the system has evolved to extract increasing amounts of profit from every aspect of our lives. Womb to tomb, we are mined for profit, and most people work themselves silly just keeping their heads above water at this point, and after 30 years don’t possess a secure retirement, since all it takes is a medical problem, divorce, firing, or lawsuit to wipe you out.
Unfortunately, at this stage of the game, it’s virtually impossible for any truly honest underground media to emerge, because even if it did, it would be quickly penetrated and subverted, which is probably what happens to any big internet companies. In one form or another, The Octopus comes a knocking at your door, offers a deal you can’t refuse: play ball and become rich beyond your wildest dreams, or go rouge and and run the risk of getting whacked or busted down to nothing. The CIA and Sicilian Men of Honor are just two tentacles connected to this gigantic beast run by old money. For this class of people, war is a game rigged for milking profits and best played when both sides are funded by the same banks.
I’m currently available for hire to any media company interested in my brand of journalism as I recently got divorced from High Times. I specialize in conspiracy research and counterculture history. Marijuana, in case you didn’t know it, is a conspiracy story, because why else would the world’s most beneficial plant be outlawed everywhere, except through a massive conspiracy?
Tague was an car salesman who got stuck in traffic on Main Street in Dealey Plaza. In order to see what was causing the gridlock, he momentarily stepped out of his car expecting to see an accident blocking traffic ahead, but quickly realized it was JFK’s motorcade just passing through the plaza.
Tague was standing near the triple overpass when he heard the sound of a firecracker. After another firecracker went off, something stung his cheek. Then Tague noticed people taking cover all around the plaza. The President’s limo sped up and raced through the underpass. Tague was sure the two shots had come from the grassy knoll. But when he walked in that direction, a policeman stopped him, and commented on the flecks of blood on his cheek and asked Tague where he’d been standing during the shooting. The policeman quickly located a section of curb that had obviously been damaged by a bullet. The blood on Tague’s face was caused by a fragment of concrete kicked up by a missed shot.
Now this was pretty solid and important evidence and pretty soon that section of curb was removed for further study. However, years later, when Tague wanted to examine the curb, he noticed the bullet scar had been filled in by an unknown substance, rendering it fairly useless as evidence. Obviously, since no one was shooting from the Texas School Book Depository, where Oswald was located, the trajectory of this bullet could have been easily traced to the Dal-Tex building. Of course, once you admitted there was a shooter there, the case against Oswald as a lone assassin fell apart.
Here’s an interesting map that shows where Tague was standing. In this diagram, it shows shots being fired from the School Book Depository. That never happened. There were three shooters, one was actually located in a storm drain on Elm Street under the overpass. This was where Johnny Roselli says he fired the first shot, which hit JFK in the throat. I don’t think Tague heard any shots from the Dal-Tex building, one of which was responsible for nicking him, because that building was located too far from him. The third shooter was located behind the fence on the grassy knoll. So the only shots Tague heard were likely from Roselli and Files.
This map is accurate, however, concerning where Tague was standing, and you can see the line drawn from his spot to the Dal-Tex building. Had that section of curb been left in place and studied, I am quite sure the location of the Dal-Tex shooter could have been conclusively proven.
Over the years, Tague became a bit of a haunted man, like others who witnessed this crime, many of whom could not fathom why their country was covering up evidence instead of swiftly moving forward to seek justice. He wrote a couple of books, and the most recent one pointed a finger at LBJ and the Texas oil crew that put LBJ into power. Tague never really looked deeply into the CIA’s JM/WAVE station, or the critical role James Angleton played in the cover-up.
Recently, Tague tried to attend the 50th anniversary ceremony in Dealey Plaza, but was refused admittance, obviously because he believes in a wider conspiracy beyond Oswald. How strange is it that a man wounded during the killing of a President is not even allowed to attend the official ceremony of the event 50 years later? It just goes to show what a tight lid they still keep on this story.
I hope the youth of America will keep looking into this tragic event, because it provides a window on how power really operates in the USA. And once you start to question the JFK assassination and cover-up, it’s an easy step to start re-examining the lies of 9/11 since the two events have striking parallels.
There are few characters in the JFK assassination saga that loom as large as H. L. Hunt. He was one of the richest men in the world in 1963, thanks in large part to the oil depletion allowance. I guess you know JFK wanted to end that tax break in order to reap millions for the Treasury. That alone would have been enough to put Hunt into action since Hunt controlled a vast private intelligence network, one that included the John Birch Society.
When you sift through the facts of this case, two nexus points emerge: one in Miami called JM/WAVE (the largest CIA station outside Langley), and the other based around the Texas oil barons who funded the John Birch Society and other right-wing hate groups, a list that included Clint Murchison and both Hunt brothers. These rich Texans were very close with right-wing elements in the military, and, in fact, had funded the political campaign of General MacArthur and supported retired General Edwin Walker, who’d been drummed out of the Army after distributing John Birch Society material to his troops. Supposedly, Oswald took a shot at Walker shortly before JFK’s assassination.
Hunt’s son Nelson helped purchased a full-page ad in the Dallas newspaper the day JFK arrived. It accused the President of betraying the Constitution. In addition, a leaflet appeared all over town that accused JFK of treason. These were not random events, but obvious propaganda ploys intended to soften up the city for what was about to happen. In fact, I’ve always suspected James Angleton wrote a secret report accusing JFK of being a Communist mole high inside the government. Angleton was convinced this mole existed based on information provided by a fake defector. Throughout the Cold War, Russian spooks like Kim Philby were dancing circles around the CIA, and manipulating the paranoid Angleton in the process.
Sam Giancana and Richard C. Nagell both claimed the Texas oil crowd put up the money to fund the assassination, and Nagell placed H. L. Hunt at the epicenter of the conspiracy. Keep in mind, Hunt was the money man behind both LBJ and Joseph McCarthy (who was actually very close to the Kennedy family). Robert Kennedy learned how to play dirty tricks from being on McCarthy’s staff, where the professor of dirty tricks was a lawyer named Roy Cohn, who would soon rise to great influence.
So Hunt was a major player in the realm of secret societies. Strange, though, how the Hunts and Murchison eventually got busted down to almost nothing at one point after becoming three of the richest people in the world, which just goes to show how the real money power resides in the Eastern Establishment trusts and banks on Wall Street, and not the individual billionaires who can come and go with market trends.
Funny how the John Birch society was so peppered with Freemasons of the 33rd Degree, high-ranking officials of the Federal Reserve banking system and members of the Council on Foreign Relations. They started out attacking Communism, which they blamed on the Rockefellers and Rothschilds. But if you know anything about Communism, you know spooks set most of it up. Was there ever a time when spooks weren’t running the American Communist Party? So it’s only appropriate to suspect the anti-Communist movement would have been similarly set-up and run by spooks. Deep politics is a wilderness of mirrors.
In 1975, Penn Jones received this anonymous letter, which some think was written by Lee Oswald and others claim is a forgery. This letter would soon feed right into the E. Howard Hunt rabbit hole, but, in fact, it’s far more likely a note like this would have been written to H. L. Hunt, who actually lived in Dallas and is someone Oswald might have conducted secret meetings with, at least that’s what Nagell claims. Unless, of course, the letter was just a rabbit hole, which seems likely.
There are a couple more noteworthy points. We know one of the assassins was likely positioned inside the Dal-Tex building. Jim Braden (aka Eugene Hale Brading) was one of three men taken into custody for acting suspicious in the lobby. Braden claimed to have come to the building for a meeting with Lamar Hunt, another son of Hunt’s sons. Since Braden had a long record and known association with Sicilian men-of-honor, one wonders why he was never interrogated as to what he was doing in Dallas that day. Braden would later turn up at the scene of Robert Kennedy’s murder.
Another suspicious factoid is that immediately after the assassination, H. L. Hunt was rushed to the airport and taken out of the country by the FBI. Supposedly, they’d received notice of a plot to kill him. But instead of protective custody, they moved Hunt to a secret destination in Mexico. Does this story make any sense except to indicate Hunt wanted to remove himself from the scene? Murchison, on the other hand, held a massive victory party at his ranch, a celebration that bothered some of his domestic staff who liked Kennedy.
But then an alternative story came out more recently that claims Hunt only pretended to hide out in Mexico, and was really holed up in a five-star hotel in Washington DC, where he could more easily guide his boy LBJ in a direction favorable to the Texas oil barons. And when you talk about that Texas oil crowd and the John Birch Society, one detail to keep in mind was the name of one of the inner circle: Fred Koch. His sons now run the second largest private company in the US and created and fund the right-wing Tea Party Movement.
