Secretary of State John Kerry Doubts Lee Harvey Oswald Acted Alone

oswaldleeharveybioSecretary of State John Kerry won’t go so far as to suggest the government’s involvement in the Kennedy assassination, but he recently told Tom Brokaw that he’s not sure Oswald acted alone.

Via Las Vegas Guardian Express:

To this day, I have serious doubts that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I certainly have doubts that he was motivated by himself, I mean I’m not sure if anybody else was involved — I don’t go down that road with respect to the Grassy Knoll theory and all that — but I have serious questions about whether they got to the bottom of Lee Harvey Oswald’s time and influence from Cuba and Russia. I think he (Oswald) was inspired somewhere by something.

Roger Stone: LBJ Had Kennedy Killed

758px-Lyndon_B._Johnson_taking_the_oath_of_office,_November_1963Patrick Howley writes at the Daily Caller:

Legendary Republican operative Roger Stone claims in his new book that Lyndon Johnson arranged John F. Kennedy’s assassination, and that Richard Nixon and Johnson had a documented relationship with Lee Harvey Oswald’s killer, Jack Ruby, years before Ruby shot Oswald in the basement of Dallas police headquarters in 1963.

Stone, who worked for Richard Nixon’s Committee to Re-elect the President in 1972 and later served in the Nixon administration, claims in his forthcoming book that Johnson, then a congressman, instructed Richard Nixon, then a congressman, to hire Ruby on the House of Representatives payroll in 1947.

Stone also claimed that Johnson “micro-managed” Kennedy’s Dallas motorcade, demanding that it pass through Dealy Plaza on November 22, 1963, when Oswald, from his perch in an overlooking book depository building, shot Kennedy.

“Nixon knew Jack Ruby, hired him on House payroll in 1947 at request of … Lyndon Johnson.

Eleven Secret Documents Americans Deserve to See

David Wallechinsky has written a list of eleven secret documents that he feels every American deserves to see:

Via AllGov:

Many documents produced by the U.S. government are confidential and not released to the public for legitimate reasons of national security. Others, however, are kept secret for more questionable reasons. The fact that presidents and other government officials have the power to deem materials classified provides them with an opportunity to use national security as an excuse to suppress documents and reports that would reveal embarrassing or illegal activities.

I’ve been collecting the stories of unreleased documents for several years. Now I have chosen 11 examples that were created—and buried—by both Democratic and Republican administrations and which cover assassinations, spying, torture, 50-year-old historical events, presidential directives with classified titles and…trade negotiations.

When the administration of George W. Bush was confronted with cases of Americans fighting against their own country, it responded in a variety of ways.

Robert Greenwald Challenges ‘JFK’ Actors

It’s good to see that the Hollywood hacks are paying attention to Robert Greenwald’s message to the actors in the controversial History Channel Kennedy miniseries. From The Wrap.com:

Left-wing documentary firebrand Robert Greenwald Thursday challenged actors Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes – who were cast this week to play John F. Kennedy and his wife Jackie in a miniseries about the Kennedys – to “insist on a historically accurate and politically unbiased script.”

In February Greenwald corralled a group of prominent historians including former Kennedy advisor Ted Sorenson who in a video took objection to the script, calling it a politically-motivated “character assassination.”

The eight-hour miniseries is being produced by Joel Surnow, the executive producer of the hit action-torture series “24” and an outspoken political conservative.

The miniseries is scheduled to air in 2011 and marks the channel’s first foray in scripted drama. It is also in keeping with the network’s move to broaden its audience and attract younger viewers — a decision that seemed to pay off earlier this week when the channel recorded its biggest ever ratings for Sunday’s premiere of “America: The Story of Us.”

At the time of the historians’ broadside in Feburary, The History Channel defended the project, saying the historians had seen an early draft, and that its standards for historical accuracy “are more rigorous than the broadcast networks.”

With the high-profile casting of Kinnear and Holmes this week to play the lead characters, Greenwald again went on the offensive.

“Bones” in the Money Pit

By Robert Singer

“Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.”—JFK.

Our consumer society didn’t just happen, it was planned. Not in 1910, or 1954, but in the year 1832, the year William Huntington Russell and fellow classmate Alphonso Taft at Yale University founded the Skull and Bones society, a branch of the Bavarian Illuminati.

According to most of the available biographical data on its early members, the money required to sustain the secret order’s campus affairs and its broader role in placing its members into key positions of influence upon their graduation from Yale was derived from the opium trade in the Far East.

Members, known as “Bonesmen,” include Rockefeller, Kuhn, Loeb and Morgan all connected to the House of Rothschild’s global financial empire. They are founders of the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, France, and Germany or, for that matter, any central bank anywhere in the world.… Read the rest
