In a television interview, A Current Affair, the mistress of Lyndon  Johnson, Madeleine Brown, described the meeting of 21st November, 1963, when she was at the home of Clint Murchison. Others at the meeting included Harold L. Hunt, J. Edgar Hoover, Clyde Tolson, John J. McCloy and Richard Nixon. At the end of the evening Lyndon B. Johnson arrived...

"Tension filled the room upon his arrival. The group immediately went behind closed doors. A short time later Lyndon, anxious and red-faced, reappeared... Squeezing my hand so hard, it felt crushed from the pressure, he spoke with a grating whisper, a quiet growl, into my ear, not a love message, but one I'll always remember: "After tomorrow those goddamn Kennedys will never embarrass me again - that's no threat - that's a promise.".

It's important to note that John J. McCloy was a member of the now discredited Warren Commission which "investigated" the assassination, appointed by none other than Johnson. Nixon himself was in Dallas on the day of the assassination.

Dallas Morning News, November 22, 1963. The day of President Kennedy's assassination

The lead prosecutor in this so called investigation is Sen Arlen Specter. Today, he is Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, insuring that while he is alive, the miscarriage of justice perpetrated on an American president will never be addressed.



Jim Garrison discusses NBC attempts to discredit his investigation.

Bravery Under Fire: Jim Garrison

"It will be noticed that we are now experiencing two forms of counterattack from the forces defending continued concealment. There is a closely timed coalition of major news media and other cooperative agencies seeking to create the impression that the assassination is a closed matter and anyone who raises questions is either sinister or misguided."

No longer able to withstand the test of informed dissent, 8 of 10 Americans now believe Oswald was a patsy or did not act alone.

Diverting suspicion from LBJ...

The are Liars, Damned Liars, and then Gerald Posner...

In "Case Closed," Posner's monomaniacal, pretentious tribute to a Warren Commission organized by the prime suspect himself, Johnson; he appeals to a common "attack the messenger" disinformation tactic that among other things-- implies Jim Garrison was actually insane for questioning the Warren Commission. (see page 432)

According to Posner,  in 1952, Jim Garrison was relieved of duty in the National Guard. He alleges that doctors at the Brooke Army Hospital in Texas diagnosed him as suffering from a "severe and disabling psychoneurosis" which "interfered with his social and professional adjustment to a marked degree." Posner alleges the evaluation further said that Garrison "is considered totally incapacitated from the standpoint of military duty and moderately and recommended long-term psychotherapy.   Fine. Let's entertain Posner and assume changing the subject  doesn't invalidate his stance, and that this particular messenger, Garrison, is totally insane.

Is Garrison the only one who ever questioned the Warren Commission? And what does Garrison's personal life have to do with the assassination and the evidence at hand?  Such as the pristine "stretcher bullet"--  the hopeless implausibility of the Magic Bullet Theory?  The very fact that Posner has to appeal to textbook disinformation tactics rather than argue the matter at hand, demonstrates a fear of the truth, not a willingness to find it.  Is he  projecting fears of his own insanity for buying into the notion that a bullet that strikes bone will emerge intact, and defy the laws of physics-- just because a fellow mason, Arlen Specter or Gerald Ford says so?

Some of the people who Posner sources in his footnotes deny ever talking to him. For instance, when Peter Scott phoned Carlos Bringuier in New Orleans to confirm that he told Posner what Posner quoted him as saying, Bringuier said he didn’t recall ever talking to the author. Gary Aguilar wrote a letter to the Federal Bar News & Journal noting this phenomenon (Vol. 41 #5):

I called [James] Tague on April 30, 1994, and he told me....that he has never spoken with Posner, though the implication of three references in Case Closed is that Posner did speak with him on two successive days...."

Then there is the possibility that Posner may have deceived Congress. To quote Aguilar’s letter again:

On November 17, 1993 before the House Committee on Government Operations, Posner reported that he had interviewed two of Kennedy’s pathologists, James Humes, M.D. and J. Thornton Boswell, M.D. Posner testified that they confirmed to him that they had changed their minds about the original location they had given for Kennedy’s skull wound....Posner informed the U.S. Congress that the pathologists told him that they had erred [in their original autopsy report]—the [head] wound was 10 centimeters higher, at the top rear of the skull. On March 30, 1994, I called both Drs. Humes and Boswell. Both physicians told me that they had not changed their minds about Kennedy’s wounds at all. They stood by their statements...which contradicted Posner. Startlingly, Dr. Boswell told me that he has never spoken with Posner.

Posner then slanders two of the Dallas doctors who continue to maintain that the large exit wound was in the back of the head, Dr. Robert McClelland and Dr. Charles Crenshaw, who recently wrote a book rejecting the autopsy findings. 

Posner's typically pathetic attack on Dr. Charles Crenshaw, a Clinical Professor of Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School,  was to imply he was insane.  This time he quotes some disparaging comments about Crenshaw made by an anonymous "close Crenshaw friend."  But isn't that convenient?  Hey, I know an anonymous close friend of Posner myself, and as such, journalistic professionalism demands it be noted that this source has seen Posner fornicate with chickens in front of schoolyards, or that he sucks the sweaty balls of Klan apologists.

This is the man praised by Anthony Lewis of the New York Times, Newsweek, the Washington Post, and Time. Had it been any other writer, he would never write for another paper again.  Other writers have been fired for less to defend the "integrity" of their publications.  But Posner only earns accolades. 

The Propagandists

Catholicism is a religion perennially opposed to freemasonry, and is virulently despised by them since 1314; when the original freemasons, the Order of the Templars, were forced underground by the French King Philip de Belle and Pope Clement V for charges ranging from ritual murders to trampling the cross underfoot/urinating on it as a sign of their contempt for Jesus Christ and his compassion.

JFK, LBJ and Catholicism

The Dixiecrats in the Democratic Party wasted no time in appealing to their common intolerance of Catholics when Lyndon Baines Johnson ran against JFK for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1960. Johnson actually attempted to label the entire Kennedy family as a "Catholic conspiracy" in speeches throughout the US. The mudslinging failed, of course, but this attempt revealed an under-current of religious intolerance. Johnson appealed to this religious "wedge issue" to woo Protestant Conservative votes in the South when campaigning against JFK.

Complicity of Intelligence Apparatus

In both cases, the federal detective force (FBI and CIA in Kennedy's case) were warned in advance of a plot to kill the president, and in both cases the warnings were deliberately ignored by those in charge of security; Edwin Stanton and J. Edgar Hoover, respectively.

In Lincoln's case Louis Weichmann, a lodger at Mary Surrat's boarding house, reluctantly reported to government officials in March of 1865 that he believed there was a conspiracy afoot to kill Lincoln. He was ignored. But after the murder a scapegoat was needed, and on the basis that Booth and conspirators met at the boarding house, Mary Surrat was hanged.

In Kennedy's assassination, FBI Director Hoover was personally alerted numerous times of a plot to kill him in Dallas. A letter from the Oswald imposter to Valery Kostikov of the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City was intercepted November 9, 1963. Kostikov was the KGB officer in charge of assassinations in the western hemisphere. Ironically, Lee Harvey Oswald tipped off the FBI on September 17, 1963 that an assassination was being plotted. William S. Walters, a security clerk employed in the Bureau's New Orleans office, gave D.A. Jim Garrison an affidavit stating that on the morning of November 17, 1963, he read a TWX that warned "an attempt to assassinate President Kennedy would be made in Dallas on November 22, 1963."

When he was arrested, Oswald had the name, telephone number, and license plate number of FBI agent James Hosty. And after Kennedy was shot, Hosty was ordered to destroy a note left to him by Oswald; which he tore up and flushed down the toilet.

Nor did Hoover reveal that Jack Ruby was also an informant for the FBI, as was Lee Harvey Oswald; who was hired upon his return from Russia. Oswald was a double agent in military intelligence-- that's why no charges were pressed against him for his "defection." The Russians themselves were suspicious of him as he walked into the Russian Embassy and denounced his citizenship, and offered classified radar data.

Although it was claimed that Oswald provided the information-- flight paths and altitudes, e.g., that led to the downing of Gary Power's U-2 spy plane; U.S. authorities made no effort to prosecute him upon his return. It's possible the Russians downed Powers on their own with information provided by someone other than Oswald.

By 1963, a man claiming to be Oswald  will offer to kill JFK in the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City. The Mexican government will warn U.S. officials, and they will be ignored. A man is photographed outside the embassy that day, and the man that claims he is Oswald bears no resemblance. As an undercover "defector" for the CIA, Oswald was the perfect patsy. The military-industrial establishment wanted to launch a war with Cuba.

Lee Harvey Oswald was told by intelligence officers that they wanted him to infiltrate a Communist conspiracy to kill JFK in Dallas.  His FBI contact, one of several, was Special Agent in Charge James Hosty. To convince Castro sympathizers and agents he was genuine, he was given airtime to promote the communist agenda.  A much publicized  fight was staged between Oswald and a so-called "angry patriot" as he handed out "Hands off Cuba" flyers.

When Kennedy was shot, Hoover officially disowned Oswald. So in comes Jack Ruby, a mob lackey and friend of the Dallas police chief. 

To be fair, some in the CIA were aware of the plot and rebelled against it. In Texas, on September 20, 1963, three days after Oswald alerted the FBI of the plot, Richard Case Nagell entered an El Paso bank and calmly shot holes in the ceiling. Then he simply waited for the police to arrive. He said he wanted to be in jail when Kennedy was assassinated. His registered letters to J. Edgar Hoover which warned of the plot were read but not answered.9 police to arrive. He said he wanted to be in jail when Kennedy was assassinated. His registered letters to J. Edgar Hoover which warned of the plot were read but not answered.9 (According to Assistant FBI Director William Sullivan, Hoover took special care to read all of his mail. For every letter received the sender or organization was checked out in the FBI's Central Files before his staff answered it. Thousands and thousands of man-hours were spent and millions squandered on these background checks.)

Nagell knew Oswald, having met him in Texas. What Nagell was hired to do, but refused, was "arrow", or kill, this patsy after setting him up for the shooting. This job eventually went to Jack Ruby.
