JFK Assassination

Speaking of Stand Down Orders

Since one of the purposes of 911blogger is to educate about past assassinations and false flags, used to seize political power and/or trigger war, it is very illuminating to see the parallels of JFK and 9/11. From the video description:

Watch as the two secret service men assigned to protect president Kennedy's motorcade are ordered to stand down just minutes before entering Dealey Plaza. They are obviously not happy about being given these orders. It brings up another question: Where was NORAD on 9/11, who was in charge and why?

Big Safari, the Kennedy Assassination, & the war for control of the Venice Airport

.... Sept 08, 2009
by Daniel Hopsicker

A fierce war being waged for control of the Venice Municipal Airport has led to the discovery of covert CIA and military operations, dating back to at least 1959, which go well beyond what was previously known to have taken place there.

Operations at the Venice Airport have involved individuals whose names figure prominently in the Kennedy Assassination, for example Texas oilman General D. H. (Harry) Byrd, owner of a defense contractor which in the late 50's and early 60's built and launched Regulus II cruise missiles from the beach directly in front of the Venice Airport in a program run out of at Eglin AFB in Florida’s panhandle.

“Vought's Regulus II was a Mach 2 capable cruise missile optimized for launch from surfaced submarines and other Navy surface vessels, and later served as a high-speed target drone for other weapon development programs,” company literature stated.

Outline of Evidence for the JFK Assassination (Part 1 of 3)

(One of the best journals at DemocraticUnderground.com belongs to poster Time for change. I have invited TFC to repost his "Outline of Evidence for the JFK Assassination" here, as it offers a good introduction to just a few of the many problems with the JFK "Official Conspiracy Theory", aka the Warren Commission Report. Quite a few of the things that TFC mentions are covered by JFK researcher Robert Groden in his classic documentary, "JFK: The Case for Conspiracy". If you haven't seen it, Peter Dale Scott draws many parallels between JFK and 9/11 in his talk, JFK and 9/11 - Insights Gained From Studying Both. -rep.)

My interest in the death of President Kennedy derives from my belief that his presidency and his death were pivotal points in American history.

At the time of his assassination, President Kennedy was in the midst of intense efforts to end the Cold War. Had he lived to run for a second term, it seems likely that the Cold War would have ended some 25 years earlier than it did. Instead, through the time that the Cold War ended in 1991 we were ruled by a series of U.S. presidents who (with the exception of Jimmy Carter) sought to expand the Cold War, and along with it the imperial presidency and the scope and size of the Military Industrial Complex.

Oliver Stone, the relaunch of JFK and the Unspeakable, and 9/11

(Contributed by Barrie Zwicker, Toronto)

Canadian-born James Douglass of Birmingham, Alabama is a Christian pacifist , a 9/11Truther and author of JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters (Orbis Books).
The book rose to number 31 on Amazon’s best seller list two weeks after Oliver Stone appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher” on June 26th last holding a copy of the 2008 book, which was shown on camera. Stone said it is a “great book.”

The question “why” that Douglass’s book addresses in the case of JFK’s assassination arguably is also the most important question concerning 9/11. Douglass recently has been added under “Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth” on http://PatriotsQuestion911.com

Excellent JFK assassination video "The Garrison Tapes"

I'm not knowledgeable about the JFK assassination to know if there are any questionable facts in this presentation, but as far as I can tell, the quality is excellent.(At least the first 5 segments. I haven't seen all of them, yet.) Garrison comes across as very intelligent, moreso than the impression I gathered from Kevin Costner's portrayal of him in the movie JFK. There are also clips of Fletcher Prouty, who was represented in the JFK movie by Donald Sutherland's character 'X'.

LInk here.

News from the Mary Ferrell Foundation

I hope all has been well for each and every one of you, and before we all head off for our respective holiday breaks, I want to share some big news with you.

When the MFF opened up shop in 2005, we had under a hundred thousand pages in our document archive. This past month we passed the 1.2 million page mark.

Last Friday, our project to digitize major collections of FBI Records provided by the Assassination Records and Research Center (AARC) came to a close. These records comprise more than 450,000 pages of our archive. For the complete story and collections, please check out the feature article.

I hope you will join us in 2009, as we have some exciting developments coming up, that I will be sharing as the date gets closer.

And on a personal note, thank you for the warm welcome I received with my first post. I hope to continue posting as time permits, and to share what we at the Foundation have to offer, as we continue to explore and illuminate the stories connecting those events that shape our current society.

Welcome to the Mary Ferrell Foundation

Question - what did the 9/11 Commission learn from the Warren Commission?
Answer - don't release 26 accompanying volumes of evidence.

More than four decades ago, those 26 volumes, at odds with much of the Warren Report, set off a handful of researchers on parallel journeys to find the truth behind the JFK Assassination, trying to succeed where they believed their government had failed them.

It is because of those researchers that I'm writing this today. I'm the Executive Director of the Mary Ferrell Foundation, and want to take this opportunity to give a brief introduction to the work of the Foundation.

The MFF is a non-profit group dedicated to the exploration of the deeper stories behind the national tragedies and crises that shape our lives. Our main topics are the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, his brother Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King. Our goal is to not only shed light on these tragedies, but place them in a modern context, showing how the events of the past irrevocably effect our present and future.

The focal point of the MFF site is our vast document archive, currently containing over one million pages of once-classified documents, many declassified as recently as the late 1990s. Ranging from foreign policy memos concerning the Vietnam War and President Kennedy's implementation of a withdrawal plan before his death, the secret war on Castro, and the records of the Church Committee, which in the 1970s, laid bare the dirty laundry of the intelligence agencies and revealed to the public the CIA-Mafia plots to murder Fidel Castro.

One of the most damning revelations to come out in the massive 90's declassification was the Operation Northwoods. Refused by Kennedy, these papers revealed planning by the JCS for faked and actual terrorist actions against the U.S. to be conducted by the U.S., but in a such a way as to blame them on Cuba. These attacks would provide a pretext for an all-out military invasion of Cuba, and the overthrow of Fidel Castro. What is past truly is prologue.

Over the next few months, I'll post more links to new documents in our archive, as well as featured books, essays, and more. Thanks again to the editors for giving me the chance to contribute to this blog, and I hope you all get a chance to check out the Foundation's website for yourself at www.maryferrell.org

Cheers,
Tyler

The Building Seven event of the JFK assassination

Jack Ruby's assassination of accused JFK assassin Lee Oswald is ample evidence of a conspiracy. http://www.maebrussell.com/Disappearing%20Witnesses/Ruby%20Oswald.gif

Why would a strip club operator sacrifice his freedom and possibly his life to "spare Mrs Kennedy the trauma of a trial"? That makes no more sense than the collapse of Building Seven at near free fall speed due to fire.

We missed the opportunity to turn back from the road to fascism when JFK was murdered. Exposing the obvious discrepancies of the official story may have been a more effective strategy than even the Vietnam war protests. Long live 9/11 truth!

My Letter to TVO

I just watched your program, “Conspiracy Anyone” on The Agenda, TVO, August 1, 2008.

Thank you for addressing the issue of conspiracy. It seemed that more focus & time was spent theorizing on the mindset of conspiracy paranoia than the details of any of the conspiracies themselves.Two of the four panel experts could not swear by the official theory of the JFK assassination so I assume they suffer from the same conspiracy paranoia which they attribute to the majority. I did not hear them discuss the details of their doubts. If such a malady as “conspiracyitis” could infect the minds of 70+% of the population, it is noteworthy, but the panel was as vague about the science of this psychological phenomenon as they were on any of the conspiracies mentioned. No studies in the area of mass paranoia were cited.

The Two Sides of Vincent Bugliosi

I post this now because I noticed that Bugliosi was recently featured on Democracy Now and also is going to be on a radio show with Kucinich soon. His 2007 book was 'Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy', and his 2008 book is 'The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder.'

This is another case where *anyone* who utters the phrase "prosecute Bush" is given a free pass. Being on Democracy Now then opens the door to every single left media and blogger to accept him unquestioningly. But as Michael Green states, "The purpose of Bugliosi’s 'Reclaiming History' is to defend the integrity of the USG National Security State by grossly distorting its nature and function."

Could such distortions, and the taking down of the JFK truths one year earlier, have been a necessary ingredient of becoming a central figure in the supposed prosecution of Bush? Only time will tell.

The essay is detailed but thorough and well done.

JFK and 9/11 coincidences

Fifteen minutes after JFK is shot, Dallas Police dispatch an APB for a suspect fitting Lee Harvey Oswald's exact description, although Oswald has neither been implicated nor his weapon found. Moments after 9-11 attack, a scorched passport allegedly belonging to an Islamic hijacker is found near the WTC wreckage.

(B). Alleged JFK assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was a former CIA operative. Alleged 9-11 mastermind, Osama Bin Ladin, was former CIA operative.

Letter to Bill O'Reilly: JFK Truth versus 9/11 Truth; the Disparity

I submitted this e-mail to Bill O'Reilly. I want to credit Altruist, Dem Bruce Lee and JJJames for a few quotes of theirs I paraphrased from the comments section. ____________________________________________________________________________________

Hi Bill!

In 1990, when I was in sixth grade in Cincinnati, I first became drawn into watching news and following current events. Every single day after school and music lessons I would watch: News 5 at 5:30/6:00 with Jerry Springer. (Gotta love it, eh.) Then Tom Brokaw. Then, Inside Edition, with Bill O'Reilly. "We give you something to think about."

Boy, did I love watching you every single night before starting up on my math homework, Bill. Your charisma and flair for reporting passionately about con-artists, murderers and rapists, and topics of controversy truly made me a fan of yours. In those days you were 60 Minutes' only competition!

Back then, you were quite a hard-hitting reporter:

Looking for the Enemy

You can order my book here. Among other things, I show that the CIA sabotaged their own Bay of Pigs invasion, that HIV was probably invented by the US government, and that Noam Chomsky and Rudolf Augstein are frauds. These are not claims, but conclusions based on detailed textual analysis--in Chomsky's case of his letters to me. This history is essential for a full grasp of the reality of 9/11.
