I've been following with some interest the discussion growing out of the recent revelations from former Senator Kerry.

Hi John -
Thanks for the responses. I saw where Clinton in fact had declassified the PFIAB records on his last day in office, an act which in and of itself is a good thing. But it begs the question of who now has the power to do that kind of thing (Dubya) in the absence of any successor entity to the ARRB. And of course the other notable example of post-ARRB confusion occurred when Yeltsin gave Clinton a bunch of the Soviet-era documents in 1999 in Germany.
Here's a link to an article I wrote back then. The link wasn't functioning as of this morning, so I am attempting to attach a hard copy to the body of the email, as well.

I am writing to dispell your notion that there is nothing more to learn about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and that the proliferation of theories as well as research into a conspiracy in the case makes all of them wrong. . . .

John Judge mail responding to GSG (below):
From: John Judge
Date: Thu, 29 Nov 2001 01:49:59 -0500
What you call "the obvious" is not hard to accept, it is just impossible to prove. No matter what you speculate about Oswald (and I must assume you didn't know him well enough to make these guesses), you cannot put him on the sixth floor of the TSBD at the time of the shooting, prove he fired a rifle that day, prove he owned the rifle and pistol alleged to be the "official weapons", demonstrate that the shots are possible using that rifle, explain the medical and ballistic evidence of a shot from the front as well as from the back, or create the wounds and other damage done by bullets that day without at least two people firing. That is the baseline evidence of a conspiracy.
Much of Jim Garrison's investigation and charges is being vindicated by the new files, I suggest you read DiEugenio's Destiny Betrayed and Bill Davy's Let Justice Fall. Penn Jones did more original research on the case than you ever will, and was an honest journalist. Groden compiled a great deal of good photographic evidence showing the official version is wrong, and worked to preserve and make public the visual record of that event. Is there something wrong with selling photos on a street corner? Is there a rule you have to be in the middle of the street? Groden certainly knows the case better than Mr. Brandt does.
Your snideness and innuendo are not argument or evidence of anything. Try reading a few books, like Sylvia Meagher's Accessories After the Fact, or Howard Roffman's Presumed Guilty, or Peter Dale Scott's Deep Politics in the Death of JFK. Why is it so hard to imagine that more than a lone nut might have planned or plotted to kill President Kennedy when he was bucking the major political forces and institutions in those years?
There is and has been a growing body of hard evidence that both debunks the Warren Commission and proves a conspiracy for many long years. I don't know what you have been doing with your time since then, I've been reading and researching.
GSG letter regarding John Judge letter to Jacqueline Flood
Perhaps the author of the e-mail to which I am referring has not read any of Robert Groden's "excellent books", or if he has, the author undoubtedly has no idea of what an excellent book really is. Groden is a self-serving, self-styled "expert" in photographic analysis, who at one time was selling photos on a Dallas street corner. His credentials as a photo analysist were debunked when he was a witness for the defense in the O. J. Simpson civil trial,
Jim Garrison? Penn Jones? These are supposed to be credible investigators and writers?
May I suggest that we remember the life and legacy of JFK, instead of trying to dredge up mysterious conspirators and devious plots in his death.
Why is it so difficult the accept the obvious: that Lee Harvey Oswald, a misfit who wanted to achieve greatness, assured his place in history by killing the President.
Where is the solid evidence of a conspiracy?
Mail followup from David Cogswell (reprinted with permission)
Great letter John [see JJ mail to JF], horrible article. You got me inspired and I fired off a letter to her myself. Here it is:
Dear Ms Floyd,
Your profile of Mr. Brandt has some interest as a personality sketch. If he were a butterfly collector, it would matter less that you stayed entirely on the surface and never delved into the substance of the huge subject you opened up. You pass on his conclusions about a matter that is still controversial with far-reaching implications, with nothing more to back them up than a character study of the man who holds the conclusions.
He seems like a nice enough man and probably sincere in his beliefs, though it takes a little more than that for me to adopt his beliefs wholesale, and I think it should for you too. Your attitude of blasé indifference toward the subject of the assassination would seem to disqualify you from drawing conclusions and passing them on in a context that some may assume is authoritative. It reminds me of reviewers who pan a work of art without taking the trouble to learn about what is behind it.
It is certainly more comforting to pass off the assassination as the work of one whacko who just got so lucky his shots performed murderous miracles. And it's fine for you to hold on to the more comforting thought. It really doesn't fit with the facts, however. I have no idea how Mr. Brandt came to his conclusions and your article made no effort to answer that question. It only said he had studied the subject at length and that was his conclusion. I'm always curious how a person could reason from the facts to that conclusion.
Some day you might want to delve into the subject yourself. It certainly does hold some fascination. A vast majority have always rejected the official conclusion because it was so riddled with flaws. Even the House of Representatives concluded it was a conspiracy in the Committee on Assassinations in the 1970s, but the establishment media tend to embrace the Warren Report's elaborately constructed lone assassin theory, apparently because of the disturbing political implications of a conspiracy that involved highly placed officials.
Did you ever see the Zapruder film? It was hidden away in a vault for the first several years after the assassination so the population didn't have the benefit of seeing with their own eyes how Kennedy was thrown backwards like a rag doll hit with a cannonball when he was shot. How anyone can see that and conclude he was shot from the rear is a testament to how a belief can overrule what is plain as day to the senses.
If you ever get curious, take a look at Crossfire by Jim Marrs, another Texan who teaches a university course about the assassination. It's quite fascinating and full of facts that will show you what all the fuss is about. It's at least worth the trouble to take a look at the arguments. It may enhance your perspective and help you to be a more canny observer of current affairs.

The ecocide, etnocide and genocide in Vietnam is still an unassessed heritage of our war there. Agent Orange, Gulf War syndrome and the new bio-weapons in Colombia take their toll on GI's and the population being attacked. We have unleashed so much death in the world, and weapons that just keep on killing decades down the line. Afghanistan was already dealing with 10 million land mines, now there is new unexploded anti-personnel cluster bombs as well. I am sure depleted uranium weapons are part of the picture there too. Here is a look back at the technology of death we rained down on a small country 40 years ago.

11 Jan 2002
I worked for ten years with the international movement of victims of forced drugging, toxic drugging, electroshock, insulin shock and lobotomy / psychosurgery, and other forms of invasive and destructive "therapy". Seven million children are forced to take Ritalin now by the school systems.
This article exposes some of its potency and brain-damaging effects. It was exposed that the diagnostic terms Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD) were created in collusion with the pharmaceutical industy that then claimed Ritalin would "cure" them. This brings multi-billion dollars in profits to these huge industries, like Pharmica, which has several representatives in the White House chain of command at present.
Whatever "benefit" is supposedly derived from this massive drugging of young people, whose brains are even more vulnerable than adults and still growing, it must be weighed against the simple fact that for hundreds of years we have had schools and children and communities that have survived, grown, and been educated without these drugs. There are other alternatives.
I, for one, hope that Oppositional Defiance Dis/order is never cured. I also hope that the pure joy that children have in learning and matching their creative curiosity with the tools they need will not be buried in institutional warehouses that are merely trying to control them for several hours a day. The "attention deficit" is on the part of a society that cannot overcome the damage done by lack of community and family support and tv-driven consciousness to allow education to take place.

- Subject: Studies in Intelligence - Max Holland's Chicanery
29 Jan 2002
Max Holland is still trying to peddle this absurd notion that Paese Sera's article on Permindex was the only reason Garrison or others believed there was CIA involvement in the JFK assassination, and that this alone is the basis for Oliver Stone's film and for the public suspicions. Those of us in the research community know how small the circle of Americans is that have ever heard of Permindex or it's relation to Clay Shaw and the JFK events. Holland's thesis is allegedly based on his
"scholarly detective work makes perhaps the best use to date of the rich inventory of documents that were declassified at the direction of the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB)."
I suppose he's never noticed John Newman's book based on the same "rich inventory" called Oswald and the CIA, which never mentions Permindex at all. Those of us slammed by Holland from the start of COPA, and present at the ARRB hearings and events, knew his agenda was set not on "scholarship" but on attack. His main push back then was to be sure files were released on RFK, which he and Guss Russo hoped would prove another false thesis that JFK's murder was "blowback" from RFK's alledged plots against Castro.
Holland is reduced, as was Russon, to relying on notes, minutes and reminiscenses of the likes of Gen. Edward Lansdale, Richard Helms, William Casey and the pantheon of "honorable men", who of course would never engage in deception of any kind about history. Maybe every awful suspicion we have about the good old USA and its intelligence apparatus is due to a slander campaign by the KGB, but you can't convince anyone who has done a bit of homework. Expect more of the same and worse from this source, and be ready to counter it.
We know much more now about Operation Gladio and the Propaganda Due covert operations aimed at stopping communists from ever being elected in Italy, with a great deal of help from the American CIA. And we know much more about Shaw (Destiny Betrayed by Jim DiEugenio, and Let Justice Fall by Bill Davy, and more to come from the files) and his relation to intelligence and the assassination plots. The new files do more to bear out Garrison's thesis than to discount it. There is still an ongoing interest in the publishing world in any book that discounts Garrison or Oliver Stone, who told his story in the film JFK. But you have to ask yourself which organization has planted the most disinformation in the press about the death of JFK, here and abroad, the KGB or the CIA?

3 Feb 2002
I have long contended that "UFO's" are really terrestrial craft, developed by Nazi scientists first in WWII, and used but kept secret by the US when they were brought here and to Canada to continue their work. I call them Unrecognized Fascist Observatories, and they are part of what I call hidden technology. William S. Burroughs said, "If this was the middle ages and Magellan was an American, and he discovered that the world was round not flat, we wouldn't tell anyone so we could attack from the rear." That's the mentality.
Anyway, here is a list of unclassified (much more is not) DOD films of flying discs, including the Avrocar model. We are supposed to think they are either swamp gas reflections or men from Mars. When I studied the reports in the Pentagon library, though, they were coming in and out of military bases in most situations. Does this mean there is not intelligent life on other planets? I hope not, having found so little here. It just means that "flying saucers" are not evidence of their existence, and that "alien abductions" are not likely. After all, if you are smart enough to cross interstellar space to get here, wouldn't you be smart enough to turn around?

The Pentagon Hollywood Axis and how it works. Recently released "We Were Soldiers" is an apologia for the genocide in Vietnam made like a Battan film from WWII with the same apolitical unit morality and tears back home at the base among the officer's wives. Human suffering is human suffering, but setting up military bases in another country, after refusing to allow elections and establishing a dictatorial regime ten years before, doesn't make us an "innocent bystander" to the local response. However rewriting Vietnam and overcoming the "syndrome" (i.e. anti-war sentiment and repulsion at genocide) is critical right now for the coming generation.

- Subject: Was There A Conspiracy?
24 Mar 2002
Yes, Hillary, there is a conspiracy, a vast right-wing conspiracy, but it goes way beyond the goons who tried to discredit your husband and even beyond Mellon-Scaife and the other funders of the conservative propaganda machine. I saw Brock on C-SPAN today, and was bemused by his shocked recognition, after years of toadying, that these reactionary goons will lie, cheat, steal and smear. But the real conspiracy behind "Monicagate" (around here is was called "Zippergate") was centered in the two women who began the scandal and exposed the affair:
Linda Tripp (GS-13 Army Intelligence, White House leftover from the Bush years, former personal secretary to Richard Secord and the Delta Force covert operations that led into Contragate), who began taping her calls from Monica.
Lucianne Goldberg (North American Newspaper Alliance stringer/operative). NANA was a spy operation since it's formation by Ian Fleming's British Intelligence circle, postwar US intelligence figure Ernest Cuneo -- mentor to Drew Pearson and Jack Anderson, the masters of selective declassification -- and Texas oil man Ivor Bryce, when Lucianne's husband Sidney Goldberg was hired by Fleming to be the "Russian desk". Sidney in turn employed Priscilla Johnson (later McMillan) to interview the "defector" Lee Harvey Oswald in Moscow, at the urging of her Office of Naval Intelligence plant at the US Embassy there, Richard Snyder, and also Aline Mosby, who did a similar job establishing ONI "defector" Oswald's credentials. Lucianne continued planting disinformation through NANA, took a job with the Watergate CREEPs, working to dig out dirt on Nixon's political opponents in the 1972 election, and more recently served as a publicity agent for LAPD racist cop Mark Furman in the OJ Simpson spectacle.
These two are part of the real conspiracy, the assassination by innuendo and scandal of a President, by two experienced intelligence handlers. Monica may have been victim or ally, it remains to be seen. The right wing was more than happy to pick up the trail and send in the bloodhounds, and no doubt were contacted to do just that. But the removal of a President from office is not left to the dogs, they send in the professionals. As always, there is more to the story. But on Clinton's inauguration day, George H W Bush, known as "Poppy" to the family, left town and the White House saying, "I'll give him his term, then I'm coming back." And, here we are.

By "patriots" no doubt, once all the "traitors" are hung. This quote on the JFK matter [from another article on the same site --ratitor] should tell you enough:"There have, of course, been men of outstanding moral stature, for example, Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan Jr, U.S. Senator George Mitchell and President John F. Kennedy (whose assassination in 1961, probably involving the CIA, the FBI, the Mafia, military intelligence, American supporters of Israel and two future U.S. Presidents, Nixon and Bush Sr., was the first coup d'etat in the history of the U.S.)"

6 Apr 2002
The following story appeared on the newswire recently concerning a "confession" by an alleged King assassination plotter. It is not credible in my view because it reduces the plot to the Ku Klux Klan and a $100,000 payoff. Note that the confessor waited until all the other plotters were dead, and plans to do a book. Also note that the FBI is "taking this very seriously", even though they are "not investigating" any link to Wilson's father. The timing of the confession guarantees news coverage.
In any case, there may be a modicum of either truth or falsehood in the story that can enlighten. King's case remains unsolved and the files unreleased. But it seems canaries sing for their suppers quite often following the lines in songbooks we already wrote. King's family has no comment.
Work continues on two ideas that sprang from the November COPA conference. An International Network of Deep Politics Researchers (INDPR) has formed to share information on the real history and events of September 11, 2001. Also, a proposed tabloid of current information and research on the three major assassinations is being assembled for printing prior to the 40th anniversary of the JFK assassination in 2003. Next year will also mark the 35th anniversaries of the MLK and RFK killings, and we might want to organize small meetings in Memphis and Los Angeles, as we did on the 30th anniversary, hoping to get some press and keep interest alive. Let me know if you are interested in such meetings. Work continues on the release of the MLK records with Rep. Cynthia McKinney's office as well.

- Subject: Venezuela: Change of Government
15 Apr 2002
Here is the official and completely phony State Department release on the coup to oust democratically elected President Chavez in Venezuela. The IMF/World Bank had been busy for some time "dollarizing" and destroying the economy of this once rich southern neighbor, and creating the conditions for an uprising. Chavez had been opposing them, selling oil to and maintaining relations with Cuba, bucking Chevron in the state-owned oil company, and generally refusing to cowtow to US corporate/military interests in the region.
We have engineered many coups and overthrown many democratically elected leaders. When those who support oppressive US and globalist policies of privatization of resources and austerity measures for the populace go about killing the opposition, we do not chide them, we reward them instead. But there is no evidence that shows the attacks on demonstrators did not come from the same military that then ousted Chavez. He did not resign, he was overthrown. What comes next remains to be seen.
When Teddy Roosevelt set out to steal the Panama Canal, they hired a group to overthrow the local government in what was then a section of Bolivia, and the State Department recognized the existence of a separate country, Panama, before Bolivia even knew it had been annexed for control of the canal. "We showed those jackrabbits!" Teddy said. All over the world people are "Enduring Democracy", American style at least.

Earl Warren's father was beaten to death with blows to the head. He was home alone, but there was no suicide, just an unsolved homicide. Some suspect it may have been Earl, but it was never solved. Warren worked closely with McCloy, and others in California to set up the WWII Japanese internment camps. He was politically "discovered" by Murray Chotiner, a hatchet man for Nixon. He was supposedly opposing the Mob and offshore gambling. He headed a libertarian court, but he was not legit. He had a good reputation though, so LBJ wanted him to give credibility to the JFK cover-up. Warren balked, knowing it would always haunt him I suppose, and LBJ reminded him he was a military officer and could be called to duty at any time. Johnson gave him a military order to chair the commission.
Eustace Mullins is anti-semitic and often very inaccurate in his work on the government and the Federal Reserve. The far right want us to think JFK was killed because he printed some money independent of the Fed. That was the least of their problems with JFK. But it lets them link it all in to the worldwide "International Banker Conspiracy" (read Jewish), and avoid talking about the Pentagon and the military-industrial complex. You can find better sources, trust me.
Mullins was in D.C. last year at our annual conference, telling that Earl Warren assisted his Father to commit suicide. Very interesting guy with vast knowledge of the Federal Reserve System.

6 May 2002
Though this is too simplistic a model to explain the high-level involvement of the JCS, for instance, it does ring true in regard to the nuclear circle at Oak Ridge. Garrison was looking into the security guards there, the largest police force in the US, totally secret, founded by Colonel Groves and David Lillienthal as the Defense Industry Security Command (DISC). It is mentioned in histories of the Tennessee Valley Authority. It is one of the groups listed by Torbitt (Copeland) in Nomenclature of an Assassination Cabal as responsible for the plot against JFK. It still exists as DISCO and guards the nuclear weapons, plants and waste.
Oak Ridge and Manhattan were the beginnings of the national security secrecy state. Has anyone run across the person named here? The link to Ruby? DISC was under DIA of course, so this can be true at the mechanical level but still not the whole story. There was a lot of "fallout" from nuclear weapons, and JFK wanted to end the arms race and dismantle them.

Washington Post joins conspiracy theorists
[We'd like to think that this report would reduce the number of journalists making dumb comments about "conspiracy theories" but we doubt it since badhabits can be even stronger than conspiracies]
||| George Lardner Jr. Washington Post - The House Assassinations Committee may have been right after all: There was a shot from the grassy knoll. That was the key finding of the congressional investigation that concluded 22 years ago that President John F. Kennedy's murder in Dallas in 1963 was "probably . . . the result of a conspiracy." A shot from the grassy knoll meant that two gunmen must have fired at the president within a split-second sequence. Lee Harvey Oswald, accused of firing three shots at Kennedy from a perch at the Texas School Book Depository, could not have been in two places at once. A special panel of the National Academy of Sciences subsequently disputed the evidence of a fourth shot, contained on a police dictabelt of the sounds in Dealey Plaza that day. The panel insisted it was simply random noise, perhaps static, recorded about a minute after the shooting while Kennedy's motorcade was en route to Parkland Hospital. A new, peer-reviewed article in Science and Justice, a quarterly publication of Britain's Forensic Science Society, says the NAS panel's study was seriously flawed. It says the panel failed to take into account the words of a Dallas patrolman that show the gunshot-like noises occurred "at the exact instant that John F. Kennedy was assassinated." In fact, the author of the article, D.B. Thomas, a government scientist and JFK assassination researcher, said it was more than 96 percent certain that there was a shot from the grassy knoll to the right of the president's limousine, in addition to the three shots from a book depository window above and behind the president's limousine.

Subject: Questions about the Vietnam War

From: Kate Kolbert-Hyle
To: John Judge
We are studying the Vietnam War in history class. For an English assignment we have been asked to find somebody involved in the Vietnam War to answer questions and reflect on their experiences. You can answer any, all or none of the questions as i can understand it might take awhile. If you'd rather reflect on a specific experience that would be just as good. Thanks so much for your help and if you have any questions let me know!
- Were you involved in the Vietnam War?
I was involved with the Vietnam war, as was almost all of my generation and other generations that came before us, in one way or another. The war became a national question because it made young men face questions about their social duties and sense of alienation that had built up since the 1950s. The war also brought social costs at home, guns instead of butter, thousands of deaths, and eventually a recession. Those who fought the war became increasingly alienated with it as well, due to the nature of the weapons, the high levels of civilian deaths (90%), and the lack of clearly defined military objectives. It became a war of attrition (reducing the numbers), not only of the "enemy" but of the Vietnamese people.
The war did tremendous damage to Vietnam as well, and what was once the rice-producing capitol of the world now imports most of its rice. Horrible ecological damage resulted from the bomb craters (26 million in a country the size of Rhode Island), the chemical spraying and de-forestation, the breakdown of barriers between salt and fresh water, loss of topsoil which irreversibly hardens the clay soil beneath (called laeterization), the deaths of many natural species and types of plants and the normal interaction of the different levels of the ecology there.
The Vietnamese people are still being poisoned by chemicals in the water and soil, have high rates of birth defects (25%), are still harmed by unexploded bombs in the soil, and have never been given any reparations or help following all the destruction. So, yes, I was very involved with the war and with those who fought it or refused to. I read all I could about it starting in the early sixties, and collected information all through the war years.

I remember years ago when a jock at my college asked me, "Whaddya mean you don't believe in war? Don't'cha believe in God?" Nix to both.

Why are they sooooo threatened when a few people don't believe in their Supreme Being? I know they all want a theocracy, but this country was founded by deists, who did not themselves believe in a Supreme Being. The phrases "under God" and "In God We Trust" are offensive to those not steeped in this religious blindness.

Gen. John Ashcroft now wants to revive. This article focuses on the current funding behind an effort to unseat McKinney for taking unpopular progressive views. She is one of our best friends in Congress relating to release of files. She has a website, www.adoptcynthiamckinney.org, which I encourage you to visit in order to support her.

Hmmm. . . The VA is saying they don't have the resources to provide health care services to all the vets who are entitled to them, so it's okay to stop advertising VA health care services and stop recruiting vets to use the health care program. Seems like it should then be okay--even logical--for the military recruiting command to stop advertising and stop actively trying to convince people to join the military in the first place. After all, isn't that how vets are created? -Rick J

4 Aug 2002
This tells us a bit more about Chomsky and who he really protects. I also recall him refusing to support student protests against MIT's appointment to the Presidency of his pal John Deutch who had extensive ties to the military-industrial-complex through some 10 top contractors. Chomsky later said that Deutch was the best possible man to head the CIA.

Subject: MIT Professor Chomsky's military ties
Date: Fri, 12 Jul 2002 18:00:23 -0400
Regarding the documentation of MIT Professor Chomsky's ties to the military during the McCarthy era of the 1950s:
"In 1955, Chomsky's friend Roman Jakobson arranged for him to work as a researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Chomsky, in his own words, `had no identifiable field or credentials in anything', but MIT, `a scientific university which didn't care much about credentials,' was willing to overlook his lack of certifiable `professional competence'. Chomsky was made an assistant professor and assigned, ironically, to a machine translation project of the type he had often criticized. The project was directed by Victor Yngve and was being conducted at the MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics, which was subsidized by the U.S. military.
"...He was...interviewed by laboratory director Jerome Wiesner for the position...Chomsky was hired as a full-time faculty member, which meant that he was required to spend half his time working in the research lab...Here, his Aspects of the Theory of Syntax was hatched...The funding for the research published in Aspects was provided by `the Joint Services Electronics Program' (U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force), the Electronics Systems Division of the U.S. Air Force, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and NASA..." (from Noam Chomsky: A Life of Dissent by Robert Barsky)
Jerome Weisner later became the head of JFK's Science Advisory Committee during the early 1960s; and according to the 1965 annual report of the Ford Foundation-subsidized Institute for Defense Analyses Pentagon weapons-research think-tank, Jerome Weisner was an Adviser to IDA's Jason Division group of university professors who performed counter-insurgency, Vietnam War-related weapons research every summer during the 1960s Viet Nam War Era.
When students shut down Columbia University in 1968 in support of the demand that Columbia resign its institutional membership in IDA, MIT Professor Chomsky constructed a left anti-war rationalization for opposing the Columbia student revolt -- but he did not disclose at the time that an IDA Jason Division consultant, Jerome Weisner, was the person who hired him as an MIT professor and military lab researcher during the McCarthy Era.
As Barsky also notes in his Noam Chomsky: A Life of Dissent book: "While he admired `the challenge to the universities' that the students were so vehemently presenting, Chomsky thought their rebellions were `largely misguided,' and he `criticized [them] as they were in progress at Berkeley (1966) and Columbia (1968) particularly." Today, of course, MIT is still the 12th-largest recipient of all U.S. Air Force war contracts and the largest recipient of U.S. Air Force war research contracts in recent years.

1 Oct 2002
Somehow the Civil Rights Museum got $11 million to expand into a phony exhibit trying to prove Ray's guilt. Wonder who put it up? I always knew there was so little evidence, myself. I'm working on a regional meeting in Memphis on April 4 next year, since it will be the 35th anniversary of Dr. King's murder. The press is already sniffing as you can see. I tried on the 30th anniversary to rent space at this very Museum and I was denied since they "wanted to focus on his life, not his death". I think another in Los Angeles on June 6 would be in order for RFK as well. In addition it will be the 40th for JFK, so we need to be visible in Dallas.
There will be a major debate of the single bullet theory at the Wecht College of Forensic Science at Duquesne University on November 22, 2003 featuring Dr. Cyril Wecht, Senator Arlen Spector, Dr. Gary Aguilar, Dr. Michael Baden and perhaps others, and we will try to simulcast it into Dallas for those who won't be in Pittsburgh to see it live. We are working also on a mock grand jury using real witnesses to retry the JFK murder at our Dallas meeting next year.
Bill Kelly and I will also renew our annual presence in April on the anniversary of JFK's powerful speech against the Pax Americana and nuclear rearmament and war that we are seeing now, given to the graduating class at American University in 1963. "...and we are all mortal" he said.
Work continues on drafting new legislation to release the MLK assassination files and the history leading up to it, with the help of outgoing Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Our panel discussion at the CBC annual legislative conference included Judge Joe Brown, Martin Luther King, III, Dr. William Pepper, Philip Melanson, James Lesar, Lyndon Barsten and myself. It was incredibly powerful and I hope to show a tape of it in Dallas this year.
However, we are very low on resources at COPA, and have not asked for donations in a long time. If you think these things should happen, please consider sending check or money order made to me, John Judge, with a notation that it is earmarked for COPA work. We no longer have an organizational account, but I will account it separately or open an extra personal checking account. I hope you have already made your reservations for Dallas this year from November 22-24, since we will have a great lineup of speakers and information and we will be staying in a completely redecorated Hotel Lawrence just off Dealey Plaza. Now's the time to get airline tickets and call the hotel for a special COPA discount of $69 single/$79 double (includes daily newspaper of your choice, great continental breakfast, and local van service to points of interest). We will be just off Dealey Plaza for all these events, as well as our annual Moment of Silence on the Grassy Knoll at 12:30 on the 39th anniversary of the death of hope.

Were they about to say too much? The Feds were hands off during an investigation of interstate crimes that led to the death of one of their own analysts, and now hands-on when it comes to making obscure federal charges that are preventing local prosecution.

I think it's the other way around. The visible "electoral system" is the plausible deniability for what really happens beneath visibility. Chomsky always says that the CIA are just an obedient lapdog for the President. I think the reality is that the agencies last and the presidents come and go, sometimes with a little help either way. I think by the end of WWII the intelligence systems here and around the world were interlinked and powerful enough to start choosing the leadership in their countries while they played out their games, including making massive profits from the knowledge and operations they worked with. Kennedy said he would "scatter the CIA to the four winds" in October 1963, and fired the heads of the CIA after the Bay of Pigs. If it was just cover for him, why so? And who got scattered to the four winds in November?

It may be language itself that leads to war. William S. Burroughs wrote that language was a virus that invaded the throats of apes and caused human evolution and devolution at the same time. Certainly the lack of communication does. Most animals I have known communicate and comprehend quite well, save for some humans. Dogs and chimps have different levels of objective reason to pay attention to humans, and domestication has its own inherent ills. I recall an old Ron Cobb cartoon showing a frog looking up at a man who was plunging the detonator to a nuclear bomb going off in his own head. The caption read "Man demonstrates his superiority over animals".
Bonobos, dolphins and many other wild animals seem to know how to live communally better than we do. Dominance over nature had led to tremendous violence against all species by humans, including our own. Mark Twain said man is "the only animal that blushes, or has to." "Enlighten all sentient beings" said the Buddha. War is a language and communication which must become obsolete if the earth hopes to survive it. Robert Anton Wilson contends in Illuminatus that all apes speak, but never around humans since they would be charged rent.

Surprise, surprise, or is it just somebody got over their own feelings of species' arrogance? Our closest relative on Planet Earth can develop words of its own. But we still can't give them the respect they deserve by stopping calling them Chimps.
They are not just another type of Chimpanzee, they are Bonobo. And they are a very unique member of the primate family, closer to us than to the chimps, and beyond question far, far smarter than the rest of the family of primates, especially humans because they have no difficulty grasping one concept -- the dangers of violence and inability to get along and gladly and openly prefer to spend their time making love not war -- which a lesser primate species known as Homo Sapiens can't grasp and has to put them down by calling them the horniest apes of earth. Well at least they are not the biggest warmongering apes on earth. There are no Bonobo WMD around poised for use against their own, or any one else, as their concept of screwing their neighbor every chance they get has a vastly different goal in mind.
Look them up on the web sometime and see what our closest relatives have that we don't (www.blockbonobofoundation.org): PEACE, and LOVE, brotherly love, sisterly love, combined brother and sisterly love, and more love, love, in more flavors than Baskin and Robins has ice cream, and do we? No. All we can muster in such endless varieties are weapons of war and even more endless excuses to use them!
Gives whole new meaning to the old hippie commandment about what to replace war with. Now we know they can develop their own words, start fearing what word or words a bonobo might develop to describe us? And wonder who belongs to the lesser emotionally developed, socially underdeveloped and more primitive species of primates, and wonder if we are not living-- because of our own species' warmongering -- in the last days of a real Planet of The Apes, where we clearly are the Apes!
We can't even shake off the Bushite War Party, while the bonobo could never have one as they have better, safer, and more productive and pleasurable things to occupy their lives with.
Who are the real Apes?
If there really is any long-term hope for this Planet of the Apes as we war drum and goose step into 2003 it has to be that after the small pox, the anthrax, the war for oil, the Robust Earth Penetrator, tactical nuclear weapons use, Daisy Cutters, Sarin, ammonium nitrate and diesel fuel, the bonobo will be left happily screwing away in peace in the trees, left to build a better world for somebody else's SETI Program to someday discover. Because if they are not left happily doing their thing, there will be no intelligent life left on this third rock out, for they are about all it has to offer as is!
Happy New Year and may at least the bonobo outlive OUR perverted lust! The endless lust for war and better ways to wage it!

Gee, Hunt Oil, Schlumberger, I feel like I'm reading something on the JFK assassination. H L Hunt was of course quite involved in the planning to kill Kennedy and Schlumberger owned the arms cache near Lake Ponchartrain, LA that was raided by JFK to stop a planned attack on Cuba. The anti-Castro Cubans and their supporters in New Orleans were the specific group infiltrated by Oswald.
There is more, but seeing these names again in an oil chase doesn't surprise me. George deMohrenschildt, the CIA handler in Dallas for the Oswald's was an oil geologist who lost a fortune in an oil investment (Cuban-Venezuelan Oil Trust) when Castro came to power, and an even larger one when his family was pushed out of power in Minsk, Byelorussia by the Bolsehvik revolution. His father had been in charge of the huge Nobel family oil fields there. deM was also close to Kerr of Kerr-McGee whose DISC security guards later killed Karen Silkwood. Fletcher Prouty used to contend that there was much more oil to be discovered, asserting that anaerobic oil sources exist as well. It would certainly be in the interest of the suppliers to create "shortages" as well as "surpluses" to control the market price.

When they get a little older they can be put on Prozac, like the dog is usually. Quitting these drugs quickly usually leads to disfunctional episodes which are often violent or suicidal. If they do something to really hurt anyone then it "proves" that they needed their meds. But the medication withdrawal seems to be the real source of the problem. Once past that, things improve rapidly for most.
"Class clowns" we used to call the kids who are now targets of this forced drugging regimen. One couple who refused to allow the school to drug their child ended up in court in a custody case based on their "incompetence" to raise their child if they thought he could be drug free. The level of Ritalin deaths and suicides as well as post-med activity and impovement has not been much explored. Dr. Peter Breggin is one of the few writing about Talking Back to Prozac, and his recent work on children and Ritalin and related drugs also. A voice in the wilderness though. Nasty stuff and spreading. One wonders from this logic how we ever had a functional society before all these lethal drugs came around to help us. "I just can't live without my Prozac" says one, or "he is terrible when he's off his meds". Anyway, there but for the grace of a few years went I, for sure.

I talked to students on a panel debating the war about a month ago and encouraged them to decide for themselves. I feel I had a small part in their courageous decision to act on their feelings. Middle schoolers too!! Hope this starts replicating. When I was in high school, we couldn't even have had the debate. I think we should all call and write the principal telling him not to take any disciplinary action against them. This is much better than most field trips for real life learning. On Monday, January 20th I will be speaking at a workshop at Plymouth Congregational Church (N. Capitol and Riggs Rd.)on military recruitment issues from 11:00 - 1:30 and then I will be part of a workshop with folks from the Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors (CCCO), AFSC National Youth and Militarism Project, Center on Conscience and War (NISBCO) and War Resister's League at AFSC-DC (2411 14th below W St.) on counter-recruitment, JROTC and the draft from 2:00 - 4:00 pm. These will be some of the best folks in the country, so feel free to join us and learn about countering militarism.

I was afraid when I heard about the shuttle exploding that it might be carrying nuclear materials, since so many do as part of military domination of the space program since the Challenger exploded. I heard them warning people to stay away from the debris. Since then, it was confirmed to have a nuclear payload aboard. This program just continues the problem in larger scale. It did not pass my notice that both the Challenger and the Columbia were carrying much-touted "rainbow coalitions" of the only Black, Jewish and women astronauts.

The mix of people mentioned here is informative.
REPUBLICAN DEFENSE SECRETARIES URGE NO PARDON FOR POLLARD
Seven former Republican defense secretaries, by a letter, have urged Clinton (AP Dec. 11) not to release convicted spy Jonathan Pollard "notwithstanding our strong support for Israel." The magnificent elite seven were: Donald H. Rumsfield (BB) [Trustee of Freedom House and RAND; Board Member, National Park Foundation; Member of Steering Committee, Balkan Institute and Chairman of Cilead Science, Inc.], Frank C. Carlucci III (CFR/TC) [Chairman of Carlyle Group; Adjunct Fellow, Hudson Institute; Director, Atlantic Council of the United States; Former Deputy Director of CIA; Trustee, RAND and Member of Steering Committee, Balkan Institute], Richard "Dick" B. Cheney (CFR) [Emeritus Member of Aspen Strategy Group; Director, Union Pacific; Haliburton Co., and Member, Bretton Woods Committee], Melvin Robert Laird (TC), Elliot Lee Richardson (CFR/TC) [Co-Chair, National Council, UNA-USA; Policy Review Board Member, Public Agenda; Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy; Honorary Director, Atlantic Council of the United States; Felix Frankfurter law clerk; President, Boston's World Affairs Council; Harvard Overseer and Secretary of HEW], James Rodney Schlesinger (CFR) [Lucius Trust; CIA Director; Secretary of Energy; Chairman Atomic Energy Commission; OMB; RAND staff; Director, Nixon Center and Director Atlantic Council of the United States] and Caspar Willard Weinberger (CFR/TC) [General Counsel, Bechtel; Pardoned by Bush in December 1992]. Among the some 800 documents turned over to Israel by Pollard was the 10-volume manual (CBS News Dec. 8) of the National Security Agency. Israel has never fully admitted to his actions.

27 Jul 2003
Does this sound a little familiar? With all of Poppy Bush's key Contragrate spooks in key positions, the revolving door between the Pentagon and both government and industry, and the same with ex-CIA and ex-DIA spooks running the privatized security agencies, why doesn't this same trend ever set off alarm bells here in the real "militocracy"? The coup was not so silent in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63, the shots were heard around the world, but the coup was only visible to those with enough courage to look.
The Military Has Managed A Silent Coup
by Olga Kryshtanovskaya, Moscow Times, 18 July 2003
So much for civilan rule, said Olga Kryshtanovskaya in the Moscow Times. President Vladmir PLutin has delivered the country to the army. In the three years of his presidency, "the corridors of power have swelled with people from a military, law-enforcement, or security background." Where Ptuin's predecessory, Boris Yeltsin, packed the Kremlin with policy wonks, Putin has filled it with spooks. He has "quietly and imperceptibly" replaced civilian staffers with his old cronies from the FSB, the spy agency that succeeded the old Soviet KGB.
Russians should worry. It isn't just a matter of a few retired generals deciding to take up politics. More than one third of the ministers and deputy ministers Putin has appointed to the cabinet are military officers. Even at the provincial government level, the number of appointees with miliatry or security backgroudns has doubled. These people come from a world of rigid hierarchies, where you follow your commander's orders. They are completely unsutied to the give-and-take of democracy, especially the delicate, fledgling democracy Russia is trying to nurture. Spies and military men are notoriously reluctant to share information about what they are doing, too. Russia may have shaken off totalitarianism only to embrace "militocracy."

- Subject: Upcoming book contends LBJ was behind JFK's assassination
25 Aug 2003
The item is part two of a story. Put it together with the recent review of Barr McClelland's book (second article) and see if it rings any bells. Ed Clark, blamed in the JFK assassination by McClelland was appointed US Ambassador to Australia by JFK following this disappearance. Australian and US intelligence were linked in building listening posts, among other things afterwards. Other coups happened with those who opposed policy. Note here the comparison to the JFK assassination as well as the "theory" that the CIA killed Holt because he was about to pull Australian troops out of Vietnam (the last paragraph of most news stories is still the best one to read). Clark worked with Brown and Root which made billions off of Vietnam (now under Haliburton, posed to make even more off of Iraq), and which financed LBJ into office. Kennedy was ready to pull out of Vietnam, too. Just a happenstance, as Penn Jones would say.
I mistakenly sent the link to the later version of the first article on the Reuters site. Interestingly, the byline is gone now as is the "Conspiracy Theories" section. It's this version which ends with the gem of a last line that Holt was considering pulling out of Vietnam, and it has several more details about the case.
According to Robert Caro's Path to Power biography of LBJ, Edward A. Clark resigned as Texas Secretary of State in 1940 to go to work for Herman Brown, founder of Brown & Root. Clark was a principal lawyer/advisor to Brown thereafter. LBJ appointed Clark ambassador to Australia in 1965, where he served until 1967. Holt disappeared in Dec, 1967. LBJ attended the memorial service for Holt. Brown & Root made 4 billion off the war in Vietnam and financed LBJ's rise to the Presidency. Both JFK and Holt had planned to pull out of Vietnam before their murder/disappearance. Clark is fingered by Barr McClellan in his new book, Blood, Money and Power, as working for LBJ in the assassination of JFK.

Mars is a feisty little fellow! Now that Mars is as close to earth as he's likely to be for some time again (60,000 years was the last approach), it appears in this recent image that he has popped open one eye and is sniffing with his little nose to take a look at his neighbor. This is taken from an interesting amateur Mars Watch site that posts images regularly [click image for full view]. These will probably be some of the clearest during this near patch. Other images of the site make this "eye-nose-mouth" combination into an almost cartoonish grimace. Once I saw it, the "Man On Mars" comes clear in most of them. I've always been fascinated by images of the planets and outer space. If there are aliens, I wish to hell they'd come by and get me out of this gravity well!
- Subject: Who really started the Reichstag Fire?
24 Sep 2003
A definitive account points the blame to the Nazis themselves. There is a scene in 1984 where Winston and Julia are speaking about the permanent wars being carried out in Eastasia or Eurasia (depending on the current propaganda it has always been only one of them, but the story changes in reality). Winston notes that except for the images on the telescreen and at Hate Week, they have no real proof of wars taking place, except for the occasional sounds of rocket bomb explosions on the outskirts of their main city. Julia reveals that she has always suspected those were being done by the Party itself. And now, we have 9/11. I am sending this both because of the parallels but because Ray McGovern and others have been siding to the "lone nut" thesis and blaming van de Lubbe. I believe the evidence points to the Nazi Party as the perpetrators and the beneficiaries at the same time. My reading of the history was that the Nazis overheard van der Lubbe plotting to start a fire, and they assisted his efforts. van der Lubbe had only the shirt on his back to set ablaze.

- Subject: Re: Can our agriculture survive the coming fossil fuel shortage?
9 Oct 2003
I don't agree with the peak oil thesis, but there is obviously a limit to the capability of one non-renewable energy source to sustain unchecked population growth and consumption patterns. However, there are alternative and sustainable energy sources, alternate paths, energy conservation technology and organic methods that would solve both the problems here if we got off of oil and fertilizer addictions.
Food shortage is created by misuse of arable lands worldwide to grow cash crops. Otherwise, all existing countries have enough arable land to feed their populations, even with expansion. Use of fertilizers and genetically altered seeds will destroy that advantage, however, and exhaust the soil for future use.
Oil shortages are created fraudulently in order to artificially inflate the prices. There are new deposits of oil being found all the time, the largest recent one in Iran, if that tells you anything about the war schedule. Also, there is non-organic oil, which is not being sought by conventional methods.
But oil is no salvation even if we had enough to go on forever, because the environmental damage done in its collection, transport and use create a net loss, not a net gain for future planet survival. Nuclear is worse. Solar, fuel cell, geothermal, wind, water and energy conservation and permaculture approaches can reverse all this mess. Ruppert constantly does this doomsday prediction with no alternatives given and then grins and shrugs. There are alternatives and we need to be pushing them. Otherwise, we all start fighting over the food

Subject: Can our agriculture survive the coming fossil fuel shortage?
The average American, including me, has no idea of how much our agriculture depends upon oil and gas, and when those fuels are less availabe how that will affect our food supply, and the world's. Here in this well documented report is the amazing and very scary future that awaits us, and particularly our children, in the very near future. At the end, the author states:
The questions we must ask ourselves now are, how can we allow this to happen, and what can we do to prevent it? Does our present lifestyle mean so much to us that we would subject ourselves and our children to this fast approaching tragedy simply for a few more years of conspicuous consumption?
The answer, as long as we have a corporate dominated SYSTEM, which I believe may very well be for the foreseeable future, is a resounding YES! Ken

- Subject: Corporate Banks, Nazis, Safe Passage and the JFK assassination
16 Nov 2003
This is from a website description of the team members on staff at CorporateBank. Safe passage indeed! We were the ones threatened, their only problem was being discovered and hung before they got out. Dohrnberger and Braun worked side by side at Pennemunde and Dora, using slave labor and committing crimes against humanity to build their anti-personnel rocket weapons V-1 to V-5 that they used to terrorize civilian populations in England and elsewhere. Dohrnberger was convicted, but von Braun saved him by insisting he would not work for the US unless his mentor was brought here. Lucius Clay and John J. McCloy dropped the charges. Dohrnberger helped start the space program, invented Star Wars in 1960, headed up Bell Helicopter in Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX, and employed Michael Payne. Von Braun's capture was pre-arranged and handled by General Thatcher and his aide-de-camp Clay Shaw. Shaw and Payne both knew and manipulated Lee Harvey Oswald, and helped to bring about the assassination of JFK. John J. McCloy sat on the Warren Commisson to seal the cover-up, along with Allen Dulles who made the original deals with von Braun before the war ended. For more on CorporateBank, see the website below

The Coalition on Political Assassinations endorses this Grand Jury petition as yet another step towards learning the truth about the assassination of President Kennedy, since it would allow discovery, forensic tests, and new witness testimony, armed with the expertise of 40 years of detailed research into the case. Many leads have not gone cold and a determined prosecutor could follow them relating to both the crime and the coverup. Researcher Bill Kelly initiated this project and has spoken about it at several COPA regional meetings with good response.
Motivated prosecutors got convictions in the murder of Medgar Evers and the bombing of a church in Birmingham, Alabama some 30 years after the civil rights struggle that created them. The major cases of political assassination should not be exempt, and we have recently seen a definitive civil trial, as well as a near-exoneration of James Earl Ray in the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King in appelate court. Currrently, an attorney in Los Angeles is bringing an appeal on behalf of Sirhan Sirhan, to prove his legal innocence in the murder of Roberrt F. Kennedy. I hope you will sign the petition and forward it to others you know. We need thousands of signatures to bring pressure on local DA's to intiiate the Grand Jury.
