Robert Caro on LBJ's Sadism and Racism / The Ugly Truth on Lyndon Johnson

Lyndon Johnson murdered a lot more people than just John Kennedy. Roger Stone's book: http://www.amazon.com/The-Man-Who-Killed-Kennedy/dp/1626363137/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397405430&sr=8-1&keywords=roger+stone  

 

LBJ also orchestrated the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in his most heinous crime ever. Read the book Operation Cyanide for info on that. 34 Americans dead and 171 wounded in an LBJ-diirected Israeli Defense Force attack on the USS Liberty (false flag attack to be blamed on Egypt).

 

Lyndon Johnson also stole an astounding 6 million troy ounces of gold from Victorio Peak at White Sands Missile Testing Range in 1969. That amount of gold was worth $1.2 billion (in today’s dollars) or if the Johnson family still has the gold $8.5 billion today. John Clarence has written a blockbuster trilogy of books called The Gold House on that topic.

 

LBJ was also a textbook psychopath, a pathological liar and a man who scored off the charts both in sadism and racism. LBJ’s corruption was of Biblical proportions.

 

Lyndon Johnson also had sexual relations with his grandmother and I mean that in a literal and actual sense. Ray Hill read LBJ's sexual history at the Kinsey Institute. So LBJ was not your average motherfucker, Lyndon Johnson was so depraved that "grandmotherfucker" more accurately describes this lunatic whose scary mental instabilities have been detailed by scores of people close to him (McGeorge Bundy, Bill Moyers, Richard Goodwin, journalist Hugh Sidey, George Reedy, numerous others).

 

Lyndon Johnson deserves absolutely no credit for coming out for civil rights 5 days after he murdered John Kenndy. The man had to or he was going to be the #1 suspect in the JFK assassination or perhaps the Democratic party would nominate Robert Kennedy for president in 1964.

 

It was unthinkable that LBJ would not come out for “civil rights” after a lifetime of murdering his political opponents. LBJ had to superserve JFK’s agenda (but not on Vietnam, Cuba policy) or else be subject to the withering glare of justified suspicion in the JFK assassination.

Robert Caro on LBJ's Sadism & Racism

"A stereotype that had currency in the Hill Country was that Negroes were terrified of all snakes. Sometimes Johnson or one of his Hill Country friends would catch a snake, sometimes a harmless snake, sometimes a rattlesnake. Johnson would put in the trunk of his car, and drive to a gas station at which a Negro was working as the gas pump attendant. Pulling up to the pump to get gas, he would tell the attendant that he thought the spare tire in his trunk might need air, and would ask him to take a look at it. Often this practical joke was successful; relating this story, he said, about one Negro attendant, 'Boy, you should have seen that big buck jump!' He went on playing this joke not only when he was in college, but when he was a congressional assistant -- when he was a congressman, in fact. Once, when he played it while he was a congressman -- in 1945 or 1946 at a service station at the corner of First Street and Congress Avenue in Austin -- the joke had a different denouement. While Lyndon was 'standing there laughing' at the attendant's shock, the black man picked up a tire iron and, threatening to wrap it around Johnson's neck, shouted, 'I'll make you a bow tie out of this!' The manager of the service station had to hustle Johnson out a back door to get him away." Robert Caro. Master of the Senate, The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Volume 3, p. 715. 2002.

 

 

Lyndon Johnson explaining to George Wallace how to manage those “Goddamn niggers” in 1965 after Bloody Selma

 

In honor of the recent Civil Rights Summit at the LBJ Library, I would like to give you a little tidbit about Lyndon Johnson as president, his take on civil rights & his attitudes towards black Americans. LBJ called up George Wallace to visit him in the White House, probably in 1965. Wallace brought along his right hand man and #1 Alabama political operative Seymore Trammell. His son Warren Trammell is one of my Facebook friends.

 

Here is how the meeting of Lyndon Johnson and George Wallace went. This meeting was on March 13, 1965. It was the following Saturdayafter the previous "Bloody Sunday" in Selma. Actually this meeting was highly publicized, but the actual contents of it as relayed by Warren Trammell are not well known. Also, I do not know if the USA was bombing the Ho Chi Minh trail at that time, but I think Trammell catches the unvarnished behind the scenes "flavor" of LBJ quite well.

Go to LBJ's presidential schedule and look up March 13, 1965:

 

http://www.lbjlibrary.net/collections/daily-diary.html

On the diary it says 12:05PM Meeting - LBJ, George Wallace, Seymour Trammell, Katzenbach, Bill Moyers and Burke Marshall.

By the way, like Wallace and the Trammells, I am a native of Alabama so this is of special interest to me.

 

WARREN TRAMMELL:

On Wed, Aug 28, 2013 at 5:52 PM, Warren Trammell  wrote to Robert Morrow:

"To Robert Morrow: to whom it may concern....my father's (Seymore Trammell) memories of his and Alabama Governor George Wallace's private and not really publicized meeting, with President Lyndon Johnson in his Oval Office, concerning the racial violence in the Southeast in the 60s. It's been impossible to nail down the exact day since it was not well publicized.

 

     In the mid 1960s in America, white/black racial unrest had reached the most violent levels the South had ever seen in modern times! Alabama Governor George Wallace and his number one adviser my father Seymore Trammell had their hands full "managing" the black/white racial violence all the Southern politicians thought was caused by the Reverend Martin Luther King and his growing crowds of black followers!  

     At the same time in a lesser known part of the world, the LBJ's USA was deeply embroiled in a massive war in North Viet Nam over oil (the real reason we know today). America's President at that time, in charge of "managing" these two violent situations, was Lyndon Baines Johnson, affectionately know by his Southern political buddies as just LBJ or just Lyndon. Unknown to the public, Southern politicians privately shared Lyndon's hatred of what he called in private, "niggers". Lyndon hated "niggers'! He called them "niggers" in private. He cussed "niggers" every day, my father said, and called them all kinds of vile names!  He had his hands full with the Viet Nam war and hated being "bothered by those G--damned niggers" my father said Lyndon said.

     To rid his hands of those "G-damned niggers" he called my father and Governor Wallace to his Oval Office officially to have a "friendly informative talk" about the disturbing violence in the South. George and Seymore were very excited! They just knew their buddy Lyndon was going to give the massive help in "managing those niggers" Lyndon said. 

     However, in typical trickster style, when George and Seymore got into Lyndon's Oval Office, they were shocked! Lyndon began to cuss like a sailor and ask them, "What in the hell are you boys (Lyndon called them boys) doing with those G--damned niggers down there?" Shocked and taken back, the "Guvna" said "Well Mr. President, we're doing the best we can! What do ya want us to do?" 

     At that Lyndon began to cuss "niggers" again. They were sitting on either side of a narrow coffee table in the Oval office and big Lyndon with his long strong arms and big powerful Texas rough hands reached over and slapped both Seymore and George hard on their knees and held their legs a moment and said "Now you boys, you gotta get your G--damned asses back down to Alabama and make those G--damned niggers act right and calm the hell down! I am G--damned tired of hearing 'bout those G--damned niggers on the G--damned news every night!  Every night at midnight, I hafta get on that damned Red Phone over there on my desk and give the G--damned orders for the B-52 Bombers to fly over the Ho Chi Minh trail  and all over that G--damned North Viet Nam and bomb the the hell outta the whole G-damned country every G--damned night and this G--damned war is killing me!" 

     "You boys got it lucky. Hell George (Lyndon called him George and "boy"), all the hell you got is those G--damned niggers throwing rocks and tot'in signs! Hell, here, I had to get the Secret Service to put-up double thick bullet proof glass to the White House windows cause these G--damn niggers and hippies up here are shootin' bullets at me and my wife and 2 little girls are scared to death!  I hate those G--damned niggers and hippies"

     At that point my father tried to tell Lyndon something but again Lyndon slapped him hard on his knee and said "Now be quiet boy, here, take this pad and pencil and take some G--damned notes". My father gave me the pad and pencil with the Presidential Seal on them!  

     The short meeting was over and Lyndon lastly said "You boys go back to Alabama and get them G--damned niggers quiet! And I don't want to hear nothin' else on the news about them G--damned niggers!"  At that point Lyndon said to the "Guvna", "Come-on boy we gotta go outside, wave at the press and tell'em we had a very productive meeting 'bout them G--damned niggers!" As they stepped up to the mic, Lyndon said kind words about the blacks in the South and indicated that the "Guvna" agreed with him and was going back to Alabama to help them get their justice.

      Lyndon grabbed George by the arm before he could speak, turned him around and with his huge hand on the Govna'a back, pushed him back into the Oval Office and out the door to get on one of the Presidential Planes back to Alabama! The "Govna" and Seymore were sadly disappointed and grumbled all the way back to Alabama, the Guvna angrily chewing on his cigar and Seymore clutching his blank Presidential note pad with great frustration."

Nicholas Katzenbach on LBJ’s racial attitudes and his telling of “nigger jokes”

“After that he would get on an old fire engine that some admirers had presented to him and drive me around – me sitting beside him in my Brooks Brothers suit and tie, LBJ driving in his ten-gallon hat, flannel shirt, and blue jeans. He would point out sights of interest, and when he saw one of his black workers in a field he would stand up (the fire engine still moving), wave his hand, sound the siren, and shout, “Come over here, boy, and meet your attorney general.”

            I would cringe beside him. It was almost as if he did not associate any of his workers with the civil rights leaders he regularly met with in Washington, although I am sure in fact he did. It was just a southern way of life that he was used to and felt comfortable with, just as he often did with the stories and jokes he told about blacks. They made me feel uncomfortable, but this president who did so much to secure equal rights saw no impropriety and no inconsistency between his stories, where blacks were the butt of a joke and his convictions about racial equality.”

[Nicolas Katzenbach, “Some of It Was Fun: Working With RFK and LBJ,” p. 207 ]

Luci Johnson screaming: "Damn you. You go find my nigger right now!"

 

I wonder where Luci got that from? http://books.google.com/books?id=lJz-yIZNE2sC&pg=PA33&lpg=PA33&dq=luci+johnson+where+is+my+nigger?&source=bl&ots=4OU7dKaT1H&sig=k6tUPI_cdZJrpDIyGzq3bWRIBFc&hl=en&sa=X&ei=RBQfUrPfOZK5sQTAo4GwBA&ved=0CDEQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=luci%20johnson%20where%20is%20my%20nigger%3F&f=false

 

bottom of page 33, top of page 34 "Inside the White House"

 

LBJ: “I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for two hundred years.”

 

Luci Johnson: “Damn you. You go find my nigger right now!”

            During one trip, Johnson was discussing his proposed civil rights bill with two governors. Explaining why it was so important to him, he said it was simple: “I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for two hundred years.”

            “That was the reason he was pushing the bill,” said MacMillan, who was present during the conversation. “Not because he wanted equality for everyone. It was strictly a political ploy for the Democratic party. He was phony from the word go.”

            MacMillan said Johnson’s younger daughter, Luci, then seventeen, was a “wretched witch.” On one stopover in Florida, she was having a tantrum because she did not know where a servant was. She blamed MacMillan for it.

            “She said, ‘Damn you. You go find my nigger right now,’” MacMillan said. Playing dumb MacMillan asked for a description of the man.

            “She screamed again. ‘Find my nigger.’ People around were smiling. She drew her hand back as if she was going to slap me. I said, ‘Miss Johnson, I don’t think that would be a good idea.’ She said, ‘Dammit, I’ll find him myself.’ This was the attitude of these people who were championing civil rights.”

[Ronald Kessler, Inside the Whitehouse, pp. 33-34]

 

 

Here are some more anecdotes on LBJ’s racism. And no, a mass murderer and a serial murderer does not care about civil rights.

 

Lyndon Johnson was a civil rights hero. But also a racist.

 

http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/lyndon-johnson-civil-rights-racism

Editor’s note: Readers may find some language included to be offensive.

Lyndon Johnson said the word “nigger” a lot.

In Senate cloakrooms and staff meetings, Johnson was practically a connoisseur of the word.According to Johnson biographer Robert Caro, Johnson would calibrate his pronunciations by region, using “nigra” with some southern legislators and “negra” with others. Discussing civil rights legislation with men like Mississippi Democrat James Eastland, who committed most of his life to defending white supremacy, he’d simply call it “the nigger bill.”

Then in 1957, Johnson would help get the “nigger bill” passed, known to most as the Civil Rights Act of 1957. With the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act, the segregationists would go to their graves knowing the cause they’d given their lives to had been betrayed, Frank Underwood style, by a man they believed to be one of their own. When Caro asked segregationist Georgia Democrat Herman Talmadge how he felt when Johnson, signing the Civil Rights Act, said ”we shall overcome,” Talmadge said “sick.”

The Civil Rights Act made it possible for Johnson to smash Jim Crow. The Voting Rights Act made the U.S. government accountable to its black citizens and a true democracy for the first time. Johnson lifted racist immigration restrictions designed to preserve a white majority – and by extension white supremacy. He forced FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, then more concerned with “communists” and civil rights activists, to turn his attention to crushing the Ku Klux Klan. Though the Fair Housing Act never fulfilled its promise to end residential segregation, it was another part of a massive effort to live up to the ideals America’s founders only halfheartedly believed in – a record surpassed only by Abraham Lincoln.

So it would be tempting, on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, as Johnson is being celebrated by no less than four living presidents, to dismiss Johnson’s racism as mere code-switching – a clever ploy from an uncompromising racial egalitarian whose idealism was matched only by his political ruthlessness.

Reflections on the Civil Rights Summit

But that wouldn’t be true. Johnson was a man of his time, and bore those flaws as surely as he sought to lead the country past them. For two decades in Congress he was a reliable member of the Southern bloc, helping to stonewall civil rights legislation. As Caro recalls, Johnson spent the late 1940s railing against the “hordes of barbaric yellow dwarves” in East Asia. Buying into the stereotype that blacks were afraid of snakes (who isn’t afraid of snakes?) he’d drive to gas stations with one in his trunk and try to trick black attendants into opening it. Once, Caro writes, the stunt nearly ended with him being beaten with a tire iron.

Nor was it the kind of immature, frat-boy racism that Johnson eventually jettisoned. Even as president, Johnson’s interpersonal relationships with blacks were marred by his prejudice. As longtime Jet correspondent Simeon Booker wrote in his memoirShocks the Conscience, early in his presidency, Johnson once lectured Booker after he authored a critical article for Jet Magazine, telling Booker he should “thank” Johnson for all he’d done for black people. In Flawed Giant, Johnson biographer Robert Dallek writes that Johnson explained his decision to nominate Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court rather than a less famous black judge by saying, “when I appoint a nigger to the bench, I want everybody to know he’s a nigger.”

According to Caro, Robert Parker, Johnson’s sometime chauffer, described in his memoir Capitol Hill in Black and White a moment when Johnson asked Parker whether he’d prefer to be referred to by his name rather than “boy,” “nigger” or “chief.” When Parker said he would, Johnson grew angry and said, “As long as you are black, and you’re gonna be black till the day you die, no one’s gonna call you by your goddamn name. So no matter what you are called, nigger, you just let it roll off your back like water, and you’ll make it. Just pretend you’re a goddamn piece of furniture.”

That Johnson may seem hard to square with the public Johnson, the one who devoted his presidency to tearing down the “barriers of hatred and terror” between black and white.

In conservative quarters, Johnson’s racism – and the racist show he would put on for Southern segregationists – is presented as proof of the Democratic conspiracy to somehow trap black voters with, to use Mitt Romney’s terminology, “gifts” handed out through the social safety net. But if government assistance were all it took to earn the permanent loyalty of generations of voters then old white people on Medicare would be staunch Democrats.

So at best, that assessment is short sighted and at worst, it subscribes to the idea that blacks are predisposed to government dependency. That doesn’t just predate Johnson, it predates emancipation. As Eric Foner recounts in Reconstruction, the Civil War wasn’t yet over, but some Union generals believed blacks, having existed as a coerced labor class in America for more than a century, would nevertheless need to be taught to work “for a living rather than relying upon the government for support.”

Perhaps the simple explanation, which Johnson likely understood better than most, was that there is no magic formula through which people can emancipate themselves from prejudice, no finish line that when crossed, awards a person’s soul with a shining medal of purity in matters of race. All we can offer is a commitment to justice in word and deed, that must be honored but from which we will all occasionally fall short. Maybe when Johnson said “it is not just Negroes but all of us, who must overcome the crippling legacy of bigotry,” he really meant all of us, including himself. 

Nor should Johnson’s racism overshadow what he did to push America toward the unfulfilled promise of its founding. When Republicans say they’re the Party of Lincoln, they don’t mean they’re the party of deporting black people to West Africa, or the party of opposing black suffrage, or the party of allowing states the authority to bar freedmen from migrating there, all options Lincoln considered. They mean they’re the party that crushed the slave empire of the Confederacy and helped free black Americans from bondage. 

But we shouldn’t forget Johnson’s racism, either. After Johnson’s death, Parker would reflect on the Johnson who championed the landmark civil rights bills that formally ended American apartheid, and write, “I loved that Lyndon Johnson.” Then he remembered the president who called him a nigger, and he wrote, “I hated that Lyndon Johnson.”

That sounds about right.

5/29/14: Join a Constitutional Assembly in Washington, D.C., to Free the CIA/JFK Files

By  (about the author) 



JFKvigil.com by from original portrait by Jamie B. Wyeth

PRESS RELEASE -  April 14, 2014

A peaceable assembly in petition for release of all Kennedy assassination-related records still withheld by the Central Intelligence Agency will begin on Thursday, May 29, at 12:30 p.m. on public terraces of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Center for the Performing Arts, 2700 F St., NW, Washington D.C.

Initiated by Karl Golovin, a retired U.S. Customs special agent, "the right to peaceably assemble, and petition for redress of grievances may not be suppressed or prohibited, as 'under color of law' by, for example, imposing inherently unconstitutional permit and regulatory requirements," says Golovin. "In the United States, the government isn't to make people create an organizational hierarchy, submit plans and ask permission before publicly assembling to require that the government immediately change and stop doing something evil.  Of course, the nature of governing authority through most of human history has been to avoid or manage criticism, to maintain absolute control and discourage public gatherings large enough to establish undeniable awareness of a need for change.  But in America, the Constitution says that if we have a grievance, we have the right to show up," he said. "Those we've placed in governing responsibility should welcome this process of receiving feedback and requiring their accountability - and not mischaracterize it as 'protesting' or 'civil disobedience.'" 



Operation Nutcracker - CrackTheNut.com by Karl Golovin

 

Golovin is hoping many will heed this call to peaceably assemble and prompt the President to require the CIA's immediate release of the records. "If as many people show up as have expressed outrage about the government's conduct in this matter over the 50 years since November 22, 1963, the government will promptly release the records.  Peaceably assembling, not just online blogging and submitting written or electronic petitions, is the means provided by the Constitution whereby the American people may actually begin regaining control of our constitutional republic," Golovin said.

"There is no legitimate reason for continued withholding of information about JFK's assassination," said Golovin.  "In 1985, sworn testimony in a Miami federal trial - never publicized by mainstream media - implicated E. Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis, and other CIA personnel in the assassination.  Before dying in 2007, Hunt taped his own confession - thin on details of self-described 'benchwarmer' status in the plot - yet implicating the involvement of not just Sturgis, but other CIA figures, including William King Harvey, David Sanchez Morales, and David Atlee Phillips.

"How can the CIA delay releasing operational or other records of those who have confessed or been so implicated in President Kennedy's murder?" asks Golovin. "'National Security?' No, 'National Security' rather requires genuine unraveling of the lies that 'Oswald acted alone' and 'Ruby acted alone;' Even reining in the CIA to its original, intelligence-only mandate and terminating its operational duties, as recommended a month after JFK's murder by the man who signed into law establishment of the CIA, President Harry Truman." Golovin notes, "Trying to make the world a better place by just killing all the right people obviously hasn't worked so well.  The founders were wise to agree on the requirement in the U.S. Constitution that Congress, the peoples' collective representation - not just a president, or CIA - must  declare war prior to unleashing acts of war, like assassinations and destructive interference in the internal affairs of other countries.  We have moved far enough in the wrong direction since JFK's assassination; it's time to correct our direction."

Golovin said that in part due to the proliferation of social media, the people of the United States have become complacent and forgotten the power of simply showing up in large numbers. "The government can't treat assembly as civil disobedience. It is actually the heightof civil obedience to peaceably show up and hold our government accountable," Golovin stated. "It would be highly uncivil of authorities to prevent or disrupt it."

Golovin remembers a quote by Kennedy, "One person can make a difference, and everyone should try."  He hopes hundreds, thousands, or more may heed that call.



JFKvigil.com by Karl Golovin

There are no plans for speakers during the assembly. "This is not about people gathering to be entertained, and any making the effort to be here will no doubt already understand the issues at stake.  We have become far too comfortable with routinely gathering only online, or just to hear experts speak and then ourselves go home, buy more books and continue always studying, always preparing, yet perhaps never taking demonstrable action.  This assembly is about experiencing the importance and power of our collective presence, gathering in expectation that those in government will promptly initiate a meaningful response; release of the records," Golovin said. 

Following the assembly, the group may disperse and peaceably reassemble elsewhere, perhaps at the White House or CIA Headquarters, "to emphasize the immediacy of our grievance," Golovin said. "In first assembling, we are creating a moment for spontaneity.  In that moment and those to follow, none should instigate or participate in disorderliness or violence - any persons doing so should be immediately shunned, as likely planted by others to discredit the assembly; this is a day for peaceably assembling, in petition for redress of specific grievances."

Golovin recently hosted on March 21st, during "Sunshine Week," showing of a film, "JFK: A President Betrayed," at the Goethe Institute in Washington D.C., followed by a video produced by Golovin and discussion of the potential for what he terms "Constitutional Activism" in the context of the JFK assassination records issue.



HonorJFK.com by Karl Golovin

Concurrent with this press release, Golovin is placing on YouTube an updated version of the original video on this topic, which received about 1700 views after initial posting on January 4, 2014.  The current video may be viewed by going to the domain names www.HonorJFK.com orwww.CrackTheNut.com, as are forwarded to the video, or on the link provided at the Facebook Event page for the May 29th assembly, as is easily reached via:  www.JFKvigil.com

The video released by Golovin and related Facebook Event page issue a call to action:

"On JFK's birthday, peaceably and simultaneously assemble in communities across the U.S. and world, but especially on the public terraces of The Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C., petitioning by your presence for: 1) Immediate release, in full, of all still secret assassination-related records; 2) Reining in of the CIA to its original, intelligence-only mandate; 3) Establishing a specific date for annual, global recognition of John Kennedy's life by vigilance in ending the intimidation of government secrecy and the violence it perpetuates, shining the light of transparency in  governments everywhere."


JFKvigil.com by Karl Golovin

 

Between this press release and May 29th, Golovin anticipates publicly displaying a sign and distributing flyers calling for the May 29th assembly:

  1. On April 21st, 2014, at both the John F. Kennedy National Historical Site (JFK Birthplace) and JFK Presidential Library and Museum, Boston, MA;
  2. On the morning of April 22, 2014, during the broadcast of "Good Morning America," from the Rockefeller Center, New York, NY.
  3. Between April 22, 2014 and May 29th, on Pennsylvania Avenue, in front of the White House, and other appropriate venues in and around Washington, D.C.

On May 29th, Golovin anticipates release of a still further updated video, addressing matters to include E. Howard Hunt's confession and President George H. W. Bush's association with the CIA before his appointment as the agency's director in 1976.  Of note, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover took pains to carefully document that on November 23, 1963, "Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency" received an assassination-related FBI briefing, the day after JFK's murder.  

Also on May 29th, if all records related to JFK's assassination are not released on or before that date, Golovin anticipates calling for subsequent reassemblies on the public terraces of the Kennedy Center, on November 22, 2014, the 51st anniversary of JFK's murder, and thereafter as necessary, including on the date yet to be announced for filming of the 2014 Kennedy Center Honors.

Why Are They Still Lying To Us Re: JFK Assassination?

The JFK Assassination: Why are They Still Lying to Us?

By  (about the author)   



Dealey Plaza Nov 22,2013 by ©Lance Moore

    A few days after the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, my wife and I chatted with a new acquaintance in an upscale bar in D.C., a spot frequented by Congressmen. Leaning toward us across the table, a dapperly-dressed man confirmed my suspicions about the CIA and a certain magazine. His wife, he confided, works for the internationally-prestigious magazine, and she had told him the CIA frequented her workplace to spy on a nearby embassy--with full cooperation by her employers. I found her story credible, in part because it is now well-established that the CIA infiltrated and influenced a long list of newspapers and magazines.1 Initially, I had been surprised that the magazine in question, an organization with great credibility in the academic community, risked their reputation to broadcast blatant lies about the JFK shooting. Why fib about something that happened half-a-century ago? The answer is astounding: the CIA --fifty years on--still believes it cannot afford the hit to its credibility... it refuses to admit that Lee Harvey Oswald was a company man. And it still has a vise-like grip on the mainstream media.

    I am not a kook. Several parchments from prestigious institutions hang on my wall to assure me that I'm not crazy. I'm not a 911 "Truther" or a "Man didn't land on the moon" conspiracy nut. Yet, when I began promoting my book about the JFK assassination, I observed some curious things. Major news outlets circled their wagons around the "official" government story that Lee Harvey Oswald was a lone nut, nixing any dissenting opinions. Pro-Warren Commission, pro-lone-gunman pundits (a dying breed) were trotted out on CBS, ABC and even PBS. Credible experts who offer proof of government complicity were disinvited. Others in the assassination-research community told me similar stories of how they had been scheduled for cable news/network appearances, but were cancelled at the last minute--without explanation. Even my local city newspaper, which has featured my writing on other topics, refused to print a rebuttal I had written to counter a "lone-gunman did it" fluff-piece they ran in November 2013. 

    I have been harassed. Nasty, over-the-top attacks were posted on the Amazon review page of my JFK book (despite four and five star reviews by 95% of readers). Correspondence between myself and Vince Palamara (a Secret Service expert who has been featured on C-SPAN, the History Channel, etc.) was sliced open and contents stolen, apparently with the blessing of the U.S. Postal Service.2 At the 50th anniversary event in Dealey Plaza November 22nd, an ABC-TV cameraman pulled out his iPhone and snapped a picture of my book's cover, saying he was personally interested in it... but made it clear his network was not. A CBS reporter and his cameraman interviewed me, but the footage never aired. At the end of the day, outside the Dallas JFK museum in the Texas School Book Depository, I was assaulted--choked without any provocation--by the bodyguard of former Secret Service Agent Clint Hill, as I tried to shake hands with Hill after his book-signing.3  These are things happening now, not 50 years ago.

    But let's back up and look at the long media history. The few times the networks dared examine the topic, the reporting was one-sided. CBS, for example, gave extended screen-time to so-called "conspiracy debunker" Gerald Posner, but allowed only short, benign snippets from lone-gunman critics like Dr. Cyril Wecht (and Dr. Wecht is a top-notch forensic scientist; Posner is not). I challenge doubters to put a stopwatch on any major network's coverage of the JFK assassination and see how much time is afforded the debunkers vs. the conspiracy "nuts." (one man's "nut" is another's "credentialed expert.") Though I am personally convinced that the CIA helped kill Kennedy, I concede there are two sides to this debate. So, mainstream media, give us both sides! The one-sided press coverage should scare the hell out of us.

 

    For those who have only heard the propaganda, allow me this brief rebuttal. One of the few intelligent debunkers is attorney and author Vincent Bugliosi. But he squanders his credibility by repeatedly insisting: "There is not a shred of credible evidence of conspiracy." If he had argued his side calmly and honestly, he might deserve our ears. He is, in the end, no different than most debunkers: shrill, uninterested in truth, stretching logic just for the sake of winning--as if this were a High School debating club. He stands in front of a mountain of credible evidence, countering each challenge with clever but speculative workarounds, a hundred times repeating the mantra "there is not a shred of evidence...."An ironic choice of words: a shred. We have amountain of stench and garbage that stands as a sick monument to the conspiracy, and a lot of that evidence was, literally, shredded! Despite the concerted cover-up, facts have trickled out. Below are five huge indications of government complicity in the murder of our President, all based on established facts, many from the government's own documents:

1. The Impersonation of Oswald: The strongest proof of a conspiracy is also the least reported: someone was impersonating Oswald six weeks before cameras in Dallas made him infamous. This is not rumor or speculation. White House tapes, FBI memos, and CIA photosoffer irrefutable, solid proof that someone was trying to forge the appearance that Lee Harvey Oswald had been in Mexico chatting with communists. In a still-available White House tape of a phone call between LBJ and J. Edgar Hoover the day after JFK's death, the FBI Director revealed that "we know for a fact" that while "a man... was using Oswald's name" in Mexico, the real Oswald was in New Orleans. This "Mexico thing," as Hoover called it, was "puzzling" because his agents and Dallas police had reviewed the recording and all said the voice on the CIA tape was not Oswald's.4  If Oswald was a loner and a "nobody," as the government portrayed him, why would anyone be pretending to be him at the Soviet Embassy in Mexico? The obvious answer is that the initial frame-up plan had included painting Oswald as a traitor in league with Soviets or Cubans. That constitutes a conspiracy. Moreover, President Johnson showed no surprise at this blockbuster news, and no interest in pursuing it. Perhaps at first Johnson wanted to blame the killing on the Soviets, but upon reflection, realized this would be flirting with nuclear war. So he changed tactics: LBJ began using that threat--a thermonuclear battle with Russia--as a rationale for persuading innocent folks (Chief Justice Earl Warren, for example) to assist him in a whitewash, making Oswald a lone scapegoat. Posner, Bugliosi and the other debunkers have no explanation for this "Mexico thing."

2. The Head Wounds: An exiting bullet caused a massive rear head wound, so the fatal shot came from the front. This required a second gunman, a conspiracy, and a cover-up. The government released autopsy sketches, and later a fake photo, showing the back of JFK's head nearly-undamaged, with short hairs all neatly in place. This is in stark contrast to the other photos showing a tangle of very long hair at the back of his crown, and in conflict with the best and earliest witnesses, all who reported a "gaping" occipital (rear) wound over 4" across and frontal entrance wounds. The proof is found right in the pages of the Warren Commission Report itself, in the testimony of doctors and of two Secret Service agents. Special Agent Clint Hill was spread-eagled on top of the Kennedys as they sped to the hospital. Other than doctors, Hill was the closest observer of JFK's rear head wound as he hovered over the President as they sped to Parkland--the closest in proximity and in time (before any medical person or mortician altered the look of the wounds). And Hill's sworn testimony is unequivocal: he saw a gaping rear head wound of exit. Counsel Arlen Specter led the WC interview:

Mr. Specter: "What did you observe as to President Kennedy's condition on arrival at the hospital?"

Mr. Hill, under oath: "The right rear portion of his head was missing. It was lying in the rear seat of the car.... There was so much blood you could not tell if there had been any other wound or not, except for the one large gaping wound in the right rear portion of the head."5

    What Hill saw--"a gaping wound... in the right rear" --is consistent with the location of the large wound described by over a dozen of the Parkland medical staff. Doctors described specifically the occipital, or lower rear of the skull. This should not be confused with theparietal or temporal, terms which could apply to another wound on the side of JFK's skull. The parietal can also refer, in part, to the rear, but it extends forward toward the side/ temporal region, where the WC wants you to think the bullet "exited" --on the right side. Thus the WC favored the word "parietal" rather than "occipital" whenever possible, since it was less specific. The separate right-side wound is visible in the Zapruder film, and was also a gruesome wound. But five Secret Service Agents and a flock of doctors described a larger wound at the back of the head, fully in the rear. Here's a partial list of Parkland medical personnel who described a wound irreconcilable with the autopsy photo: Nurse Diana Bowron, Nurse Doris Nelson, Dr. Charles BaxterDr. James CarricoDr. Robert McClellandDr. M. T. Jenkins, Dr. Ronald Coy JonesDr. Gene AkinDr. Kemp ClarkDr. Charles CrenshawDr. Malcolm Perry. A dozen doctors wrote immediate reports and/or gave sworn testimony. They had no reason to lie, and they certainly qualify as expert witnesses trained to be careful observers. (The Bethesda autopsy, by contrast, was done by three inexperienced military autopsists under pressure to do and say as little as possible.) No reasonable explanation has ever been offered for this irreconcilable difference, other than conspiracy. The WC simply ignored the clash between the Washington version vs. the Dallas version of JFK's skull, hoping that the few Americans who actually read the Warren Report would not realize that "occipital" means "rear." Dr. Crenshaw summed it up best by stating that the WC Report is "a fable," an "insult to the intelligence of the American people."

    To pour salt on the wound, so to speak, the House Select Committee on Assassinations reported that it re-interviewed most of the medical personnel, who clarified earlier statements so that now, the HSCA claims, there is a consensus: no large exit wound on the rear of JFK's skull. A lie. Their own records prove otherwise. There was no consensus or consistency. One quick example: look at the testimony of Dr. John Ebersole from Bethesda. Dr. Ebersole plainly told the HSCA that he had seen a gaping occipital wound. The HSCA ignored him and several other dissenters to falsely claim that everyone at Bethesda verified the autopsy photos. The HSCA continued the cover-up begun by the Warren Commission. Over 25 medical personnel (most at Parkland but several at Bethesda) and 5 Secret Service Agents are on record stating there was a large wound at the rear (mostly occipital).6  The alteration of autopsy photos to hide that fact required government complicity. 

3. Every single piece of evidence used to indict Oswald is problematic.  I'm not exaggerating. Every major and minor bit of evidence has a puzzle or flaw in it. We expect all criminal cases to have some evidentiary blemish, some i not dotted or t not crossed, and certainly eye-witnesses get details wrong. But cut into the Swiss-cheese case against Oswald (which includes the murder of Police Officer J.D. Tippit), and every slice is riddled with holes:

    Witnesses described men on the sixth floor who did not match Oswald's description, as well as different men at Tippit's shooting--balding, dark-complected, stocky suspects wearing different colored clothes than Oswald. Oswald was near the scenes of both crimes (necessary for framing a patsy), yet the timing doesn't work right for Oswald to be at either location at theexact time. Within two minutes of each crime, he was seen by credible witnesses, standing calmly: a) five floors down in the Book Depository, near the Coke machine, and later, b) at a bus stop a mile away from the Tippit shooting.

    For every witness saying shots were fired from the sixth floor, we have an equal or greater number saying shots were fired from the Grassy Knoll. Not a single line-up "I.D." of Oswald would have stood up in court. Witnesses heard Oswald loudly complaining, while being herded into the police line-up, that of course the witnesses would point to him, dressed in a shabby T-shirt with a black-eye and unkempt appearance. He stood out like a sore thumb. Howard Brennan, the only witness to claim he could identify Oswald as the sniper, claims he saw Oswald in the shadows, through a window pane, six floors up, and from across the street. Brennan wrongly described the sniper as standing at the window (when the shooter had to be kneeling to clear the closed window). So not surprisingly, Brennan failed to I.D. him in the first line-up--despite seeing the efforts by law enforcement to "sore thumb" Oswald.

   The problematic evidence continues with every detail: the bag that Oswald allegedly used to smuggle the rifle into the building was not large enough to envelop the rifle --even disassembled-- nor would it have fit under his armpit, as a witness described Lee carrying it that morning. No prints of any kind were found on the rifle until it had been spirited away to Washington by a complicit FBI, and no one explained why only one print (Oswald's palm) was found later (remember, no gloves were found on Oswald or anywhere he'd been... it is impossible to assemble that rifle without putting fingerprints all over it). Tests failed to show any gunfire residue on Oswald's cheek, another impossibility if he had fired the telescopic rifle. There were serious problems with identification and provenance of the bullet/shell casings atboth crime scenes. There are problems with the records: no police tapes or transcripts (just a few notes) were kept of Oswald's hours of interrogation; records for the Post Office box where the guns were shipped were "lost"; autopsy notes were burned; a note from Oswald to FBI days before the assassination was destroyed by FBI Agent James Hosty; thousands of CIA documents were hidden or heavily redacted, and CIA tapes (allegedly) of Oswald in Mexico were erased.

    A long list of highly-suspect actions (and inactions) by the Secret Service before and during the crime also continued after the crime: illegal removal of JFK's body from Texas; cleaning the limo (a crime scene) before it was forensically examined; dry-cleaning Governor Connally's clothes before they were examined, etc. Evidence and film from the autopsy (JFK's brain, skull fragments and photos) are missing.

    Back to the rifle: the scope was misaligned and the gun could not be fired fast enough to allow for the separate shots that hit JFK, Connally, and bystander James Tague. To work around that case-destroying problem, the Commission invented (without any evidence to warrant it) the so-called Single Bullet Theory. We call it the Magic Bullet, because none of the angles work without magical turns.* Dr. Cyril Wecht, past President of the American Academy of Forensic Science and a top forensic expert, deemed the Single Bullet Theory "impossible." No wonder that then-Commissioner Gerald Ford fudged the wording in the WC's report about the location of the bullet's entry into JFK's back. Correct placement of the back wound and front throat wound prove the shot could not have come angling down from the sixth floor.

    Given space, I could continue to list a thousand highly-questionable aspects of this case. In any murder trial, we can expect some mistaken eye-witnesses, some unanswered questions, and even some botched or incomplete evidence gathering... but not in every single aspect of the case.

    It took author Vincent Bugliosi 1,500 pages to try to explain away the hundreds of problems with the case against Oswald. He failed. Half of his case is based on opinion and exaggeration, and the other half presumes a false "straw man" argument: that conspiracy buffs claim Oswald was a shooter, or that he was completely uninvolved. Neither is the case; what we are claiming is that Oswald was involved, but only as a framed patsy who thought he had a future as an undercover agent. That is the only scenario that explains his history and actions. Overwhelming evidence shows Oswald had ties to the FBI and CIA and yearned to be, like Jethro Bodine, a "double-naught spy." Oswald's ties to Guy Bannister (FBI and Naval Intelligence) and David Ferrie (CIA) have now been proven. In addition to a photo showing David Ferrie and Oswald together, I have new, never-published testimony from the son of an Eastern Airlines pilot from New Orleans who worked with Ferrie and saw him with Oswald. Oswald's adult life intersected the intelligence community at every point.

4. The eyes and ears closest to the incident almost all agree that the final, fatal shot came from in front. Many "ear-witnesses" in Dealey Plaza heard shots from the Texas School Book Depository behind JFK--not surprising, since much larger crowds had gathered nearer the building than at the tail end of the route, where the final shot made impact. But a large number heard shots from the Grassy Knoll in front of the President (or from both directions). Some even saw gun-smoke and smelled gunpowder at that location. Fresh footprints were found behind the fence where the witnesses saw smoke and a "flash of light."

 

    The Warren Commission's explanation of "echoes" does not explain away the strong testimonies of eyes, ears and noses. Scores of people followed a half-dozen policemen up the knoll to chase a suspected gunman behind the fence, leading to the railway yard" this is on film. I've been to Dallas, and the Grassy Knoll is a far superior "sniper's nest" than the one on the sixth floor of the Depository: hidden behind a fence and the shadow of trees, the "second gunman" had a perfect angle slightly above the roadway, three times closer and a less obtuse angle than from where Oswald was purported to be crouched. The fenced area allowed for an instant getaway by car or through the rail-yard--and that area had been cleared of bystanders by a man with a badge, an agent or officer that we now know was an impostor. To recap overfifty witnesses heard a shot(s) from the Grassy Knoll area, half of whom were well-experienced with gunfire... so this is the first and only murder case to dismiss fifty witnesses as "unreliable" or "not credible."

5. Several investigations --huge efforts by the government-- not only failed to explain the many inconsistencies in evidence, they also abetted the cover-up. When journalists or debunkers claim, "the government had three investigations and found nothing," they are either ignorant of the full story... or they lie. Let's remember that the first investigations were by the Dallas law enforcement and the FBI (not the Warren Commission). The result? Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry concluded there was a conspiracy, and stated, "We don't have any proof that Oswald fired the rifle, and never did. Nobody's yet been able to put him in the building with a gun in his hand." His initial order--the first law enforcement response to the shooting--was a radio command to send officers up the hill at the Triple Underpass/Grassy Knoll. Dallas County Deputy Sheriff Roger Craig was convinced there was a conspiracy. TwoFBI agents, James Sibert and Frank O'Neil, who attended the autopsy, are on record saying the (altered) autopsy photos do not match the wounds they saw in person. Sibert has publicly condemned the Warren Commission and insists there was a conspiracy. Even FBI Director Hoover, an ally to LBJ, is on record speaking of the Oswald impostor (which, by definition, indicates another conspirator). As for the Warren Commission, whole books have been written exposing it as error-ridden propaganda. Congressman Hale Boggs, one of the Commissioners, reluctantly signed off on the final report under pressure from LBJ, but later told people privately he could not accept the "Magic Bullet Theory." Boggs told friends that "Hoover lied his eyes out to the Commission," but then Boggs' plane mysteriously disappeared in Alaska, silencing his dissent.7 Likewise, another Commissioner, Senator Richard Russell, later denounced the Commission's no-conspiracy conclusion, saying, "we have not been told the truth about Oswald."

    The House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) was also a politically-manipulated cover-up. Several high-level attorney-staffers, and its Chairman, resigned from the HSCA, in protest of yet another government whitewash. Robert K. Tanenbaum, an early Deputy Chief Counsel for the HSCA, stated, "They played politics with our investigation and subverted it." Then came the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB), which was not a new investigation but a thorough review of records by an independent board (with the aid of the National Archives). If you read their report, you will find repeatedly words like "mystery" and "vexing" to describe inconsistencies in the record and their frustration with the CIA's refusal to produce non-redacted documents. One ARRB board member, Douglas Horne, released his own five-volume report on what he learned from the experience. He became absolutely convinced JFK was killed by a conspiracy involving LBJ, Hoover, and the CIA. Horne concluded in his book, (Inside the AARB, p. 1467) that "the intelligence community... actually planned and carried out the assassination...." So, contrary to the debunkers' claims: all the government investigations, beneath the veneer of their propagandized conclusions, found evidence of conspiracy.

Why this is still relevant: The fact that no one has ever gone to prison for the assassination is a product of a continued CIA cover-up and propaganda campaign. The Senate "Church Committee" investigated the CIA in the mid-seventies and learned that the spy agency had indeed been involved in political assassinations (of Latin American leaders). The Church Committee also discovered that the CIA regularly spent hundreds of millions of dollars on propaganda, mainly by infiltrating media outlets, releasing disinformation, or bribing journalists. Foreign and domestic. This practice continues unabated. In 1999, William Schapp testified that, "About a third of the whole CIA budget went to media propaganda operations... close to a billion dollars are being spent every year... on propaganda." Carl Bernstein, Jack Anderson, and other award-winning journalists have reported how the New York Times, the Washington Post,TIME/LifeNewsweek and others have been in league with the CIA. Some of the failure of mainstream media to lift the veil from the JFK assassination is a function of ego, of being unwilling to admit their own failures at investigative journalism. But, without a doubt, part of the cover-up is the product of CIA influence and intimidation. That means we are no longer a true democracy. There was a coup d'état in 1963, and now there continues to be a massive cover-up in the media. But it is less scary to just dismiss me and my "ilk" (ilk meaning attorneys, doctors, law enforcement experts, and PhD's and ministers) as kooks; it's far safer to put on a pair of emerald-colored glasses and keep ignoring the Wizard behind the curtain.

Insider from homeland security- the Bundy ranch issue is just starting.....BLM will not give up. 
Paul Arnold 
From Doug Hagmann 
At 1750 hours ET, I was contacted by my source within the Department of Homeland Security regarding the current situation at the Bundy Ranch. To put it bluntly, the people are being hoodwinked into believing that the situation is being resolved. It is not. It is a strategic de-escalation to fool the public. This source stated that the retreat of the BLM agents and the release of the cattle was actually crafted as a potential plan yesterday (Friday, 11 April 2014) based on the following: 
1. A military assessment of satellite and drone surveillance imagery of the “patriot resistance. Drones under the control of the U.S. military were in use, taking real-time photographic images of not just the activity at the ranch, but "identifying the protesters, any arms and any supplies they might have or be carrying. “Mission accomplished.” 
2. Real-time communication intercepts between patriots on-site and their off-site support; 
3. Active monitoring of internet traffic regarding the coverage of events at ranch; 
4. The monitoring of real-time video from the scene. 
This source stated that a response by the patriot movement was anticipated, although exceeded their expectations. Although this was a real operation, they also ran this as a test case for future government operations once they saw the response. They were also actively managing the media, in some cases threatening to cut off White House access to anyone covering the event. 
Despite this, the coverage by the alternative media began to create a public relations problem that was not easily managed. . . PLEASE MAKE THIS VIRAL« less

Armed Feds Prepare For Showdown With Nevada Cattle Rancher

Ruby Ridge-style standoff brewing as Bundy says he is prepared to be killed

cliven
            bundyA Ruby Ridge-style standoff is brewing in Nevada, where dozens of armed federal agents are closing in on cattle rancher Cliven Bundy over claims that Bundy has allowed his cows to graze illegally on government land, endangering a protected species of tortoise.

 
 
8 News NOW

Vowing to take a stand for, “your liberty and freedom,” Bundy says he is prepared to be killed as authorities surround a 600,000 acre section of public land as a result of Bundy violating a 1993 Bureau of Land Management ruling which changed grazing rights in order to protect the endangered desert tortoise.

“With all these rangers and all this force that is out here, they are only after one man right now. They are after Cliven Bundy. Whether they want to incarcerate me or whether they want to shoot me in the back, they are after me. But that is not all that is at stake here. Your liberty and freedom is at stake,” Bundy said.

Bundy’s refusal to recognize federal authority over the land under dispute and his failure to pay tens of thousands of dollars in grazing fees stems from his assertion that his family’s history trumps bureaucracy.

“My forefathers have been up and down the Virgin Valley ever since 1877. All these rights I claim have been created through pre-emptive rights and beneficial use of the forage and water. I have been here longer. My rights are before the BLM even existed,” Bundy said.

Accusing feds of seizing Nevada’s sovereignty, Bundy says he has fought the battle legally, through the media, and is now gearing up to fight it physically.

“Armed agents are forming a a military-like staging area to prevent anyone from approaching the area,” writes Mike Paczesny.

Bundy asserts that his case is emblematic of how America has been transformed into a “police state,” labeling the government’s actions “pathetic”.

Hundreds of federal officials, aided by helicopters, low flying aircraft and hired cowboys, began rounding up Bundy’s cattle on Saturday as Bundy accused them of “trespassing,” adding that the impact will only serve to raise beef prices for residents of Las Vegas 80 miles away.

Feds postponed a similar raid in 2012 over fears the action would spur violence. Bundy has drawn a lot of support from the local community and protesters are heading to the area to demand authorities back off. Officials have created a taped off “First AmendmentArea” where demonstrators can voice their concerns. A sign placed inside the area reads “Welcome to Amerika – Wake Up” alongside a hammer and sickle logo.

“The rights were created for us,” Bundy told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “I have the right to use the forage. I have water rights. I have access rights. I have range improvement rights, and I claim all the other rights that the citizens of Nevada have, whether it’s to camp, to fish or to go off road.”

Addressing the justification of seizing the cattle to protect a species of tortoise, Bundy stated, “I’ll never get it. If it weren’t for our cattle, there’d be more brush fires out here. The tortoises eat the cow manure, too. It’s filled with protein.”

The standoff has echoes of the 1992 Ruby Ridge incident, during which Randy Weaver, accused of selling an ATF agent two illegal sawed-off shotguns, became embroiled in a tragic confrontation with the the United States Marshals Service (USMS) and the FBI, resulting in the death of Weaver’s son Sammy, his wife Vicki, and Deputy U.S. Marshal William Francis Degan.

The story also brings back memories of New Hampshire couple Ed and Elaine Brown, who were involved in a nine month standoff with armed law enforcement and feds as a result of their refusal to pay income tax. The Browns were later convicted of “plotting to kill federal agents” because of their refusal to surrender and were both given de facto life sentences.

In a series of YouTube videos, Cliven Bundy and his wife outline the background behind their decision to take a stand against the feds, arguing that their fight is a constitutionally-driven line in the sand to push back against the usurpation of big government.

Last Man Standing, Rancher: armed feds are surrounding my farm

A two-decades-old battle between a Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has resulted in officials armed with machine guns surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owner’s cattle, according to the rancher’s family.

Cliven Bundy, the last rancher in Clark County, Nev., has been fighting a “one-man range war” since 1993, when he decided to take a stand against the agency, refusing to pay fees for the right to graze on a ranch run by his family for centuries.

After years of court battles, the BLM secured a federal court order to have Bundy’s “trespass cattle” forcibly removed with heavy artillery, the family said.

“The battle’s been going on for 20 years,” Bundy told theWashington Free Beacon. “What’s happened the last two weeks, the United States government, the bureaus are getting this army together and they’re going to get their job done and they’re going to prove two things. They’re going to prove they can do it, and they’re gonna prove that they have unlimited power, and that they control the policing power over this public land. That’s what they’re trying to prove.”

Bundy said the government has brought everything but tanks and rocket launchers.

“They’re carrying the same things a soldier would,” he said. “Automatic weapons, sniper rifles, top communication, top surveillance equipment, lots of vehicles. It’s heavy soldier type equipment.”

His wife, Carol Bundy, said that roughly 200 armed agents from the BLM and FBI are stationed around their land, located about 75 miles outside of Las Vegas. Helicopters circle the premises, and the airspace and nearby roads remain blocked.

“We’re surrounded,” Carol Bundy said. “We’re estimating that there are over 200 armed BLM, FBI. We’ve got surveillance cameras at our house, they’re probably listening to me talk to you right now.”

A National Park Service spokesman denied there were armed guards rounding up the cattle in a conference call on Tuesday. However, she confirmed that there was “security” in place, citing threats to the contractors who are removing the cattle.

“Contractors are here and they are in place to round-up the cattle and to bring them to the impound area,” Christie Vanover said. “As for security, there [is] security in place, but that is merely to protect the contractors.”

“As you know, we have received threats and the contractors have received threats,” Vanover said. “Our personnel here and throughout the park service and throughout the BLM have received threats, as well. So security is in place to merely protect the contractors so that we can complete this operation.”

As of Monday, officials have seized 234 of Bundy’s 908 cattle. Impounding the cattle alone could cost the government as much as $3 million.

“They just brought a load down today,” she said. “They kind of harass us as well. When we leave they follow us.”

This afternoon eight helicopters surrounded the family after they began taking pictures, according to Bundy’s daughter, Bailey. Their son, Dave Bundy, was arrested for taking pictures on state road 170, which has been closed, and is being held by BLM.

The BLM said they took Dave Bundy into custody following his “failure to comply with multiple requests by BLM law enforcement to leave the temporary closure area on public lands.”

Carol Bundy said five officials took Dave and “threw him on the ground.”

“One put his knee on his head, the other put his boot on his head and pushed him into the gravel,” she said. “He’s got quite a bruised head. Just bruised him up pretty good.”

Environmentalists are praising the government’s forceful actions, which are being taken to protect the “desert tortoise.”

“We’re heartened and thankful that the agencies are finally living up to their stewardship duty,” said Rob Mrowka, a Nevada-based senior scientist with the Center for Biological Diversity. “The Gold Butte area has been officially designated as critical habitat for threatened tortoises—meaning the area is essential to their long-term survival as a species.”

“[Cliven] Bundy has long falsely believed that Gold Butte is his ranch,” added Terri Robertson, president of Friends of Sloan Canyon.

The BLM designated 186,909 acres of the Gold Butte off-limits for the “critical desert tortoise” population in 1998. Bundy had already lost his grazing permit five years earlier for refusing to pay fees for the land, which his family has ranched since the 1870s.

The “federal grazing fee” is $1.35 per “Animal Unit Month,” or the amount of forage needed per animal, each month. Bundy said he owes roughly $300,000 in back fees, while the BLM asserts he owes over $1 million. The BLM defended the removal because Bundy did not “voluntarily” give up his cattle.

“We’ve tried to do this through the legal and we’ve tried to do it through the political, and what we’re at right now, I guess we’re going to have to try to stand,” Cliven Bundy said. “We the people have to stand on the ground and get our state sovereignty back, and also take some liberty and freedoms back to where we have at least access to this land.”

“The story is a lot about the cattle, but the bigger story is about our loss of freedom,” Carol Bundy added. “They have come and taken over this whole corner of the county. They’ve taken over policing power, they’ve taken over our freedom, and they’re stealing cattle.”

“And our sheriff says he just doesn’t have authority, our governor says he doesn’t have authority, and we’re saying, why are we a state?”

“I’m a producer,” Cliven Bundy said. “I produce edible commodity from the desert forage, and all of these things are governed under state law. So, in other words, this type of government has eliminated all of our state law, eliminated our state sovereignty, and has took control over our public lands and even took control over our Clark County sheriff. They’ve taken the whole county over. The whole state, almost.”

“This is just about power of the government,” Carol Bundy said.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R.) voiced his concern about so-called “First Amendment Areas,” designated locations set up by the BLM where citizens can protest the removal.

“Most disturbing to me is the BLM’s establishment of a ‘First Amendment Area’ that tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution,” he said in a statement Tuesday.

“To that end, I have advised the BLM that such conduct is offensive to me and countless others and that the ‘First Amendment Area’ should be dismantled immediately,” he said.  “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.  The BLM needs to reconsider its approach to this matter and act accordingly.”

Sandoval also said his office has received numerous complaints about the BLM’s conduct, including road closures and “other disturbances.”

Militias Are On Route: Is the 2nd American Revolution Starting in Bunkerville, Nevada?

As I stated on Tuesday this deserved a YELLOW ALERT.  However, these PIGS, Obamanation's stormtroopers upped the ante on Thursday, by capturing Cliven Bundy's son, which was an act of war, and their tazing unarmed protesters.  Others across the country have seen what I see, and it is now ORANGE ALERT, and boots are on the ground and in motion.

I posted information last week that the United States will default at two o'clock on Friday, April 11, 2014, on a debt of several trillion dollars, which means the Federal government will be out of business, and shutdowns will follow.  Therefore, Obamanation needs to create a war by any means necessary in hopes of securing another loan and causing everyone to look the other way.  It is as usual, watch my right hand while I steal from you with my left hand.  To these evil tyrants, war is a necessity.

If he wants a war let's give him a war.  Everyone, who is not in motion for Nevada, pick your targets.  I am certain that you need not look very far from you doorstep.  If war breaks out, then let's give them war in every city, town and countryside across the country.  If you do not know who your enemies are, then here is a good place to find them.  Just look for corrupt bureaucRATS, politicians, attorners and banksters; these are primary targets when it comes to WAR.  The sooner such targets are taken out (The cutting off the head.), the sooner their war machine grinds to a halt.  When head is cut off, tail no longer wages!  On your marks, get set,..............!

People have been asking me where to find others of like mind.  If you cannot find any in your back door, here is a good place to start. http://militias.info  and click on button near bottom of the home page that states MILITIA UNITS.  There are all sorts of books, videos and other training materials that can be found on this website or over one hundred other websites linked, thereto.

UPDATE: Up to 5,000 Armed Militia Members Will Be Arriving in Bunkerville, Nevada Today

Update: Word on the street from sources close to the militia movement is that up to 5,000 armed militia members will be arriving in Bunkerville, Nevada sometime today. (See full report below)

SHTFplan.com Editor’s Note: It is apparent that the Federal government was under the impression that they could simply move into the ranch land surrounding Bunkerville, NV and have their way with the property and livelihood of the Bundy family. What they didn’t count on was the outcry from Americans across the country. And now things may be headed to the next level. As Kim Paxton of The Daily Sheeplenotes, citizen militias in several states have been called up. Many members of those organizations are taking up arms and are making their way to Nevada.

And it’s not just the citizen militias that are preparing to take action. The governor of Nevada has officially condemned the federal government’s actions, though he has yet to take any steps afforded to him under State law. Sheriff Richard Mack of Gilbert, Arizona has weighed in and calls the actions “terrorism.”

At last count there were some 200 federal agents from various agencies on the ground in Nevada and it appears that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of armed militia members will soon arrive to confront them.

The Federal government will no doubt step up their efforts, as they are facing the possibility of a widespread rebellion resulting from their actions against a private citizen whose only “crime” was to graze his cattle on the land his family has used for this purpose for over a century. It would not be at all surprising to see the President of the United States call up National Guard troops and more militarized law enforcement officials for fear of having this spiral out of control. A declaration of martial law to go along with already established First Amendment Areas is not out of the question.

We may well be on the cusp of a serious stand-off involving thousands of people. Keep in mind that most of them will be armed.

Given the circumstances, things could turn very bloody very quickly.

American-Standoff---2014


Militias Are On Route: Is the 2nd American Revolution Starting in Bunkerville, Nevada?
By Kim Paxton via The Daily Sheeple

An area just outside of the little town of Bunkerville, Nevada, with a population of around a thousand people, may go down in history.  This little spot in the desert may be compared with Lexington, Massachusetts, the site of the “shot heard round the world” – the first shot fired in the American Revolution.  Because it looks like the second American Revolution may start there…and soon.

Yesterday, The Daily Sheeple reported that tensions were running high outside of Bunkerville. It seems that the US government, in all of their infinite wisdom, has declared war on a cattle rancher named Cliven Bundy.

In a stand-off that has been likened to Ruby Ridge and Waco, the federal government has now deployed armed agents in a case of what the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has deemed “trespass cattle,” escalating a 20-year battle over grazing rights and what actually constitutes “public land” use in Southern Nevada.

Cliven Bundy, a 67-year-old rancher says his family has worked the 600,000-acre Gold Butte area since the late 1800s and that they were there well before the government’s Land Management Bureau ever came along. (source)

Armed federal officers have arrived to steal Bundy’s cattle and close down the land he is using.  What’s more, they have declared a zone around the area to be free of the restrictions of the Constitution, specifically, the First Amendment right to assemble and speak freely. They’d like to keep their reprehensible actions quiet and out of the public eye. It’s really difficult to mow down a bunch of protesters ala Waco with the whole world watching.

Yesterday, tensions began to rise even further and numerous protestors were tazed and assaulted.  (You can see the actions of those brave BLM officers on this video HERE).
{HOGWASH!  Armed mercenaries or gestapo agents are not brave, they are bullies who gang up on people who are unable to stand against them.  As in this case, two hundred thugs have come kill an old man (67) and his family.  Brave, I think not, the correct term is cowards. -SDA}

It looks like tensions will rise even further because Americans have had enough.

Militias have been mobilised. It’s going to get real.

Bundy may be facing down a bunch of armed federal thugs but he’s going to be backed up by militia members from across the country.

This is the day that Patriots have been talking about and training for. They will not stand down.

 

CBS reports that militias from Texas, Montana, Utah, New Hampshire, and Florida will be standing with Bundy against the Bureau of Land Management.

If you aren’t a combatant, this doesn’t mean that you can’t participate in this revolt against tyranny.  This is a call to action.

Here are the pertinent email addresses and phone numbers:

(source)

Share information in support of these people who refuse to stand idly by while theft, violence, and tyranny occurs at the hands of the government.  If we all spread the word, there is no way that another Ruby Ridge or Waco can quietly occur. We can combat the disinformation spouted by the mainstream media by publishing REAL photos, REAL videos, and REAL accounts of what is happening. We can keep the communication open and tell the world what the United States government is doing to its own people.

Share this and other stories through email, through social media, through links in the comments sections of mainstream news sites.  Whatever you do, don’t wait for someone else to take action. Now is the time to speak up for liberty.  Make this story too viral for the mainstream to ignore.  Do not allow these brave people staring down the barrel of a gun to do so without our support.

The Bureau of Land Management has picked up a snake by the tail, and it looks like that snake is going to bite.

Sean Hannity is again interview Cliven Bundy as I am sending this from yesterday.  I will post today's interview as soon as available.

http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/hannity/2014/04/10/nevada-rancher-threatens-range-war-against-federal-government

Nevada rancher threatens 'range war' against federal government

Published April 09, 2014 | Hannity | Sean Hannity

With: Cliven Bundy

This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," April 9, 2014. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: My next guest, Cliven Bundy, is a Nevada rancher waging a battle against the federal government over his cattle grazing on public land which is overseen by the Bureau of Land Management.

This all started in 1993 when the government declared the land habitat for the federally protected desert tortoise. Following that move, Bundy refused to pay new grazing fees and continued letting his cattle graze on the land. He argued that his ancestors worked this land since the 1870s, long before the Bureau of Land Management was formed, granting him the rights to the property.

Then in 1998, the Bureau of Land Management revoked Bundy's grazing permit. A federal judge issued an injunction ordering the cattle off Bundy's land, igniting more than a decade long series of legal filing.

Last year the judge authorized the government to impound the cattle, and just this past weekend that impoundment began. And as ofMonday, authorities seized 134 cattle, many of which belonged to Bundy. He is now threatening to wage a quote, "range war" with federal officials and say he's not backing down.

Joining me now to explain the situation for himself is the Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy. Cliven, welcome to the show.Thanks for being with us, sir.

CLIVEN BUNDY, RANCHER: Thank you, Sean. I'm happy you called this public land. You know, this is public land that we the people of Clark County, Nevada, and I'm glad you called it public land.

HANNITY: It is interesting. Your cattle -- this is public land. It's not being used. In my mind, and I'm not a rancher, but I would think the federal government would be thankful because you're cutting the lawn for free, and they're charging huge amounts of money to let your cattle graze there with these fees?

BUNDY: Well, you got to remember they are not letting me graze here. I have no contact with the United States government and I do not buy my grazing or feed from the United States government. I graze on public land long part of Clark County, Nevada.

HANNITY: Explain how the desert tortoise, is their rationalization here. I mean, there was a case of a drought out in California and they were protecting the Delta smelt over the ability of farmers to do their job. Explain how the desert tortoise got involved in this?

BUNDY: Well, the desert tortoise is a circuit animal for all other excuses for the bureaucracies to control. The desert tortoise does use the same habitat, uses the same type of feed as livestock, so they could be encountered, in other my cattle ate all the feed or the tortoise ate all the feed. But that's not the case here on this desert. It's impossible to use up all the feed for the desert tortoise.

HANNITY: Let's take a look at where we're talking about here. We have an 80-mile look here as we go to the HANNITY big board. And then we also have this issue of the timeline. This all started in 1993 as we went through the series of events that have been unfolding there. This has gone on for a long period of time. Now, the money that the federal government claims that Cliven owes them. Look at this fee that they have. They are saying you owe $1 million in grazing and trespass fees. Tell me if I'm wrong, this land is not being used by them, is it?

BUNDY: No. Let me explain the use of the land a little bit. This is south, you know, southwestern desert. There is a renewable resource out here that can only be harvested by livestock. And what I do is I -- my livestock eats the grass, prunes it, and it uses that forage to make an edible commodity for we the people of the United States. So when you get a piece of meat on your table, remember where it come from.

HANNITY: Yes.

BUNDY: That's what we do. We turn this resource into a renewable -- a usable commodity good for man.

HANNITY: By the way, when your cattle graze there, that keeps the price of meat down for every American consumer.

Let's take a look, American land owned by our government, we're talking about 28 percent of U.S. landmass, up to 640 million acres the government owns here -- which by the way, why do they own all that land?

Let me ask you one more question, Cliven. You talked about a range war with the federal government. There is a lot of people out there, now that they are taking your cattle, that are fearful this is another Waco situation. Ruby Ridge has come up in some articles. What do you mean by range war? How far are you willing to take this?

BUNDY: Well, you know, my cattle is only one issue -- that the United States courts has ordered that the government can seize my cattle. But what they have done is seized Nevada statehood, Nevada law, Clark County public land, access to the land, and have seized access to all of the other rights of Clark County people that like to go hunting and fishing. They've closed all those things down, and we're here to protest that action. And we are after freedom. We're after liberty. That's what we want.

HANNITY: How far are you willing to go? How far are you willing to take this?

BUNDY: My statement to the American people, I'll do whatever it takes to gain our liberty and freedom back.

HANNITY: All right, we'll follow the story closely and we'll watch what the federal government does. Thank you for being with us, sir. Appreciate it.

Here is an update as to movement and deployment of men.  However, I must warn you be really careful as watching and listening to what Stewart Rhodes states.  Five years ago we did a two hour interview with him on Militia Radio.  I was very obvious from that interview that Stewart is a FASCIST, and therefore cannot be trusted.  He has too many times since then attempted to set good people up to be arrested or be killed.  Stewart wants to become a good victim.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Remember is an objective of the militias to see to it, that FASCIST, COMMIES and FABIAN SOCIALIST become the victims, with no regrets.  They wish to steal our natural resources, therefore, we shall give one of our most precious metals, a few grams at a time.

Sir David-Andrew.

Message just issued by Stewart Rhodes of Oath Keepers
Oath Keepers,
We need a presence there immediately to help prevent the feds sparking another Ruby Ridge or Waco incident in the Bundy stand-off.
Nevada State Rep. Michele Fiore (a strong patriot who has attended many of our meetings) is on site right now at the protest site outside the Bundy ranch, and she is helping us assemble a coalition of Nevada state legislators. We are also working with WA State Rep Matt Shea to put together a delegation of other Western State Representatives to go there to support Rep. Fiore and her coalition, and we are working with Sheriff Mack to bring a delegation of current serving CSPOA Sheriffs to stand vigil there. We need Oath Keepers to also show up and stand vigil and support this family and the patriot legislators and sheriffs who are taking the lead in defending them. This is critical. The goal is to stand vigil to prevent another Waco or Ruby Ridge, and to put pressure on the Nevada Governor to honor the oath he took by standing up for this family and for the state of Nevada.
I fly to Vegas tomorrow. Sheriff Mack is coming too, along with the current serving Sheriffs he is rallying to the cause.
All who can make it, need to be there. We need numbers - boots on the ground. The more the better.
For those who are coming, please rally at the public protest site near the ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada. To get there, take I-15 North, toward Mesquite, and get off at exit 112. Go right two miles (you can only go right). You will see tall flag poles and signs. Can't miss it.
Per Ammon Bundy, here are some rules:
First, NO MILITARY CAMMO. This is a protest by rural Americans. Dress accordingly. (from me: Oath Keepers can wear Oath Keepers polos if you have them, or OK T shirts, but please no cammo. Let's respect the Bundy family request).
No open carry of rifles. Any rifles people may have with them need to stay in the vehicles.
When you arrive at the protest rally point, ask for Ammon Bundy, Cliven Bundy's son, to check in. If he is not there, he will have designated another family rep for you to check in with. DO NOT go past that first rally point/protest site with the flags that the family has set up on private land. Beyond that is the road to their ranch, and no one is to drive to the ranch without express permission and escort by Cliven Bundy or his sons. Please respect their need for security and privacy.
No volunteer is to give any media interviews. Refer all media first and foremost to the Bundy family members present, in particular Cliven Bundy, Ammon, or one of the other sons. And/or refer them to one of the current serving Nevada State legislators who will be there, such as Michele Fiore (she is gathering a coalition of Nevada representatives), or one of the current serving Sheriff's who will be coming. We are there to support them, and let them handle the media.
If any media ask to interview Oath Keepers, please refer them to me, but I will likely just refer them to the family until we do a press conference once Sheriff Mack arrives - and even then, the focus will be on the coalition of current serving Western State Legislators and Sheriffs that we are helping to gather. They and the family will be the main effort, and we are there as support.
BRING CAMERAS. Film everything. The more cameras, the better.
Bring relevant signs about honoring the oath, respecting property rights and free speech rights. We are there to stand up for rural Americans who are under attack and to pressure the Governor and the Clark County Sheriff to do their duty.
Ammon said volunteers can camp on private property that is on the side of the road at the main protest site the family has set up (the first gathering place you will come to with signs and flags once you get off I-15 at exit 112 and go about two miles). Again, please ask the family members present where to park and where to camp if you want to camp.

Ranch Riot!! Bundy Ranch Protesters Tasered by Federal Agents and Attacked by K9's.
 
___
 
Back in January 2014, here in the northeast, we had a protests and disputes over this fracking racket.  The government was attempting to infringe upon Onkwehonwe (Indian) rights and lands.  The government did not fair well here, therefore they went west to see what they could steal there, thinking that no one would notice or care.  The people do care, and have had enough, as to the theft of our natural resource and destroying of the land for the benefit of the international banksters.

BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed siege and cattle theft from Bundy ranch really about fracking leases

Tags: BLM liesfracking leasesBundy ranch


(NaturalNews) The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an "endangered tortoise." But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.

This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology(1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870's. The "Gold Butte" area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.

What's also clear is that oil has been found in nearby areas and possibly even within the Gold Butte area itself.

It is, of course, customary for the U.S. government to bring armed soldiers to an oil dispute. (Operation "Iraqi Freedom" for starters...) Heavily armed snipers, helicopters and militarized soldiers have never been invoked over tortoises. (Anyone who thinks this siege is about reptiles is kidding themselves.)

Here's the map showing the oil exploration conducted on the land where Bundy runs his cattle (all the red crosshairs are oil and gas exploration drilling operations):



BLM collects $1.27 million in shale fracking leases

The Bureau of Land Management has just cashed in with $1.27 million in oil and gas leases in Nevada. This was just reported two weeks ago in ShaleReporter.com, which states:

U.S. Bureau of Land Management geologist Lorenzo Trimble tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal the Elko County oil and gas leases soldTuesday for $1.27 million to six different companies. The auction took place in Reno. The leases are near where Houston-based Noble Energy Inc. wants to drill for oil and natural gas on 40,000 acres of public and private land near the town of Wells. The Review-Journal reports the project would be the first in Nevada to use hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to extract oil and gas from shale deposits.

The way this works, of course, is that BLM runs land theft operations by claiming they are "managing" the land and thereby kicking everyone else off it. They then invoke a reptile, an owl, a bird, a snake or some other animal which they claim to be "saving," even while they are stealing and destroying hundreds of cattle belonging to a private rancher trying to make an honest living in a nation where productive Americans are increasingly branded "enemies of the state."

Once control of the land is established via court order or by bringing armed men with automatic weapons, BLM then turns around andleases the land to fracking companies who proceed to exploit the land using hydraulic fracturing techniques that inject toxic chemicals into groundwater supplies (and have been linked to earthquakes). The money collected by the BLM is then used to increase BLM salaries and bonuses.

In essence, the BLM is a criminal mafia racket, and Cliven Bundy just happened to be in the way of their next target, the Gold Butte area of Nevada. That is why they brought hundreds of heavily armed men to a "save the tortoise" operation.

"Endangered tortoises" is merely the government cover story for confiscating land to turn it over to fracking companies for millions of dollars in energy leases. In truth, the BLM was rapidly euthanizing these very same reptiles en masse last year.(2)

As part of its police state intimidation to control the land, BLM unleashed attack dogs on a pregnant woman.

See the brutality invoked by the BLM against peaceful protesters in this video of a near-riot just outside the Bundy ranch:

Warning! WARNING!  WARNING!

I received word from Nevada at 18:30 ET that the BLW pulled out.
It is Friday.  If this be the case.
The FEDS love doing armed assaults at five AM on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
DO NOT give them the opportunity of such pleasure.

The raid the FEDS conducted in Kentucky was on Sunday morning.
But the Kentucky militia was not sleeping, it was the last raid those thugs will ever conduct.
But then, no one in government wants to talk about those eight dead gestapo agents.

Hold your positions.  Do not, DO NOT, withdraw.   DO NOT WITHDRAW!

The FEDS have used this tactic before.
They withdraw, and then wait for the militia to withdraw; and then return the next morning or two days later with massive show of force.

They played this game at Indianapolis Independent Baptist Church (Pastor Dixon) and at Browns in New Hampshire.
As soon as the militias pulled out the FEDS came back and seized the properties.

The militias stayed in place at Freeman, Montana, therefore, the FEDS were not about to kill everyone, who were there.  If the militias would have withdrawn, eighteen people would have been murdered by the FEDS.

The FEDS are after the minerals, which they intend to give to China for payment debt.  This has nothing to do with turtles, and the turtles are not endangered.

Please send this warning to everyone member of the militias as possible.  Do not allow the FEDS to steal this land.  Stay in place.  It is now a matter of a waiting game.  The United States went bankrupt at 14:00 ET on April 11, 2014, come Monday morning Obamanation may have a difficult time in finding any funds with which to pay these mercenaries.  In fact, a lot of Federal employees come Mondaymorning may be sent home.  This evil machine is about to grind to a halt if they cannot secure some funds by Monday.  

DO NOT ALLOW THE FEDS TO TAKE THIS LAND.  If they cannot deliver the land they cannot receive the funds that they were hoping to receive.  Then Obamanation's tyrannical regime will be out of business, without the militia having to fire a shot.  Mercenaries will not fight, if they cannot collect their pay.  Time is of the essence, staying in place for a week should break the machine.  The bansters wanted their money before Passover, April 15.  Do not allow that to happen.

Please forward this to everyone, who you believe has the need to know, especially, militia members.  ASAP!

Again, everyone is watching what is happening in Nevada, and no one paid attention to what happened today in Washington, District of Criminals.  Folks the United States went into default at 14:00 this afternoon, which means if Obamanation does not come up with some fund before Monday morning the government will go into shutdown.

The Feds have to take possess of this land before Monday morning, to secure more funds.  It is a last ditch effort to bail a sinking ship.  Do not allow the FEDS to seize this ranch, and then watch this evil empire grind to a halt.

I have seen no mention of the default anywhere in the news.  What a scam!  Go back to sleep sheople you are about to be fleeced and maybe even lead to slaughter.

A Rancher Tells All --- BLM Has Royally Screwed The Pooch On the Cattle Theft... Caught 'em Flat Out Rustling...

Posted By: Watchman
Date: Friday, 11-Apr-2014 15:55:32

A Rancher TELLS ALL:

B Hunt wrote:

I live in SW Utah. I grew up on a ranch less than 100 miles from the Bundy’s ranch. My father knows Cliven Bundy. I know Cliven’s son Ryan. This is not a hoax, it is an action of force by the BLM.

The BLM was going to sell the cattle at one of the smallest cattle markets in Utah. No cattle markets in Nevada would take the cattle without a properly signed brand inspection (which the BLM cannot obtain without Cliven Bundy’s signature). The BLM paid the owner of the Utah cattle market $300,000 to do the sale (‘R’ Livestock Connection in Monroe, Utah, owned by one Scott G. Robbins, according to the Utah Business Entity Search). Utah Governor Herbert stepped in and forbid them from bringing the cattle into Utah without the legally required health and brand inspections (which again, require Bundy’s signature) and that no feral cattle are allowed to be imported at all (per Utah statute). Because Bundy claims ownership over maybe 350-500 head of branded cattle, the other 500-700 estimated head of cattle would all be considered feral. BLM officially backed off, but we suspect they are still secretly shipping them through Utah without any permission to do so, to “private” buyers in Colorado. The contract cowboys that the BLM hired to do the roundup are from Sampson Livestock in Meadow, Utah (traitors one and all).

From what I understand, Cliven Bundy owns both the Water Rights and Grazing Rights to all of the land where his cattle run. If Bundy failed to use them, the Grazing Rights would revert to the BLM and would be retired, while the Water Rights would revert to the State of Nevada, likely to be sold to the highest bidder (which would probably be a bidding war between mineral companies that are behind this action with the BLM and the City of Las Vegas which is thirsty for water and has had multiple attempts to buy water–through eminent domain from Utah farmers and ranchers–from Utah, which were all blocked by the Utah Legislature and Utah Governor Herbert). Chances are, the BLM has already filed a claim on the water rights so that they can sell to the highest bidder (instead of the state) and are trying to get the cattle off to show that Bundy cannot use the water beneficially (much like what the US Forest Service and BLM both tried to do to Wayne Hage).

Now, for Cliven Bundy, he’s not fighting this for his cattle or his own livelihood. He recognizes that he will probably die before this fight is over. He has said multiple times that he is fighting this to wake people up about the tyranny of the Federal Government and also to help wake up the western states about getting the rights to their own land back from the federal government, which has repeatedly shut down ranchers and closed off land. (MO = 1st, get all the ranchers, farmers, Native Americans, and foresters that use the land for positive, sustainable production off of the land; 2nd, grab up all the resources; 3rd, close off the lands to public access including camping, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, boating, shooting, etc; 4th, sell off the resources to the highest bidder regardless of what that will do to the land, the local environment, or the economy; 5th, collect royalties on the resources in perpetuity; 6th, reduce and eliminate all SLS and PILT payments to the states, impoverishing them beyond belief.)

Anyway, thanks for posting about this. It is important for us to be able to raise the appropriate resistance. 
My Response:

Thank you for sending your valuable insight. This contained the details we were all missing.

From this we can now firmly conclude:

1. The BLM’s actions are not only flatly illegal, they are unlawful, and not only unlawful, they are so unlawful that it took bribing someone with a $300,000 payoff to get them to accept stolen cattle from a Government agency. I do not think that could be topped ANYWHERE else in the world, other than with something like a Mexican drug cartel.

So we have a clear cut case of unlawful and prosecutable actions by the BLM in this case.

2. The real goal is to shut down public access to these lands. Obviously Cliven Bundy was not a jerk, and he let people go back there to explore. I myself have done a LOT of back country exploring, and noticed in the early 2000′s that they closed down all the back roads about a half mile before the destination they used to go to to discourage people from exploring the wilderness.Rather than drive the whole way, you had to get out and walk a considerable distance to scenes such as Swazy’s leap, Paul Bunyans Wood Pile, and practically anywhere else you would want to go while out 4 Wheeling. And in the desert sun, that long of a walk was usually tough to do. This resulted in these types of locations no longer being visited, which effectively equaled a shut down.

3. The motives are for profit. Rather than manage the lands responsibly, the BLM is stealing it from it’s rightful holders via corrupt actions and legal loop holes, and selling it off to corporate interests. This is cold hard proof that America is not a democracy, or more importantly a Republic, it is in fact a facist dictatorship where corruption rules and rights, freedom and honor are irrelevant. 
The BLM killed hundreds of desert tortoises on purpose

They say they had to kill them because they did not have the funds to care for them. Here are two really good solutions to that “problem.” 1. Just take them out in the desert and turn them loose. -OR- 2. They could have taken the three million dollars they said the Bundy raid will cost them, CALLED OFF THE RAID, and SAVED THE TURTLES with that three million. If they had three million to destroy Bundy, they had it for the turtles as well but did not use it for that because tyranny comes first.

Steeped in arrogance and incompetence, once again a Federal agency fails to see the obvious. Or perhaps they do see it but they could care less about nature and instead operate as the enforcement arm of a band of high ranking thugs.

THE CASE AGAINST THE SINGLE BULLET THEORY: "WAS PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY SHOT BEFORE GOVERNOR JOHN B. CONNALLY?" BY ROY L. SCHAEFFER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE CASE AGAINST THE SINGLE BULLET THEORY:

WAS PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY SHOT BEFORE GOVERNOR JOHN B. CONNALLY?

By Roy L. Schaeffer

(Copyright 2012-2013, Roy Schaeffer - All Rights Reserved)

<Edited by Robert D. Morningstar>

The linchpin of the theory that a lone assassin assassinated President John F. Kennedy depends solely on the credibility of the Single Bullet Theory, also known (derogatorily) as “The Magic Bullet Theory.”

The Single Bullet Theory (or SBT), also called “The Magic Bullet Theory”, was created by Warren Commission attorney Arlen Specter (with Warren Commissioner Gerald Ford).. 

The mass media, with the exception of Fox Cable News (and the History Channel) generally “fall into line” with the party-line SBT, but thinking people still ask:

“Is it correct?”

The entire Warren Commission theory is based on the premise that three bullets (and ONLY 3 bullets) were fired from a 6.5mm Mannlicher-Carcano rifle by Lee Harvey Oswald from a sniper’s lair on the 6thfloor of the Texas School Book Depository.

The “Single Bullet Theory” (SBT) begins as the Presidential limousine turns from Houston to Elm Street where the Warren Commission supposes that ONLY one “lone assassin” was waiting. Their theory proposes that ONLY 3 shots were fired, in total (while ignoring witness testimony claiming as many as 6 to 9 shots fired, including several from the Grassy Knoll).

According to the Warren Commission Report (WCR):

1. The first bullet fired at the President missed.

2. The second bullet currently known as the “Magic Bullet” CE-399 caused all seven wounds to both President Kennedy and Governor John B. Connally.

According to Warren Commission lawyer Arlen Specter, the 2nd bullet struck President Kennedy in his upper back (between the shoulder blades), transited through his throat and continued its path, exiting from JFK’s throat going on to strike Governor John Connally in the back. According to Specter, the “Magic Bullet” transited through governor Connally’s back, through his rib cage, coming out through the front and then transiting through his right wrist and then ending up in his left thigh.

This explains to the reader exactly why Arlen Spector’s theory is also ridiculed and called “The Magic Bullet Theory,” for only in a world of magic (and fantasy) could anyone ever believe that such a thing could really happen, except through “magic.” In this case, it is the “black magic” of mass deception through disinformation, exclusion of evidence, exclusion of undesirable witnesses’ testimonies, and the performance of radical editing and alterations to the Zapruder Film to hide the real facts.

3.  The WCR supposes that the third (3rd) bullet struck President Kennedy in the back of his head causing a massive explosion of his head as seen in frame Z-313 of the Abraham Zapruder film.

Over the decades, media supporters of the WCR and Arlen Specter’s theory make their assumptions appear to be “iron-clad,” but they actually they are not.

Quite to the contrary, my JFK research over 5 long decades on this issue proves otherwise.

The Main Deception - The Alteration of the Zapruder Film.

There are 486 frames in the Zapruder Film (aka The Z-Film), which was used by Specter and the Warren Commission as an accurate timepiece to support his theory. Because the Mannlicher-Carcano can only be fired a single shot at a time, reloading the next shot requires a minimum of 1.6 seconds minimum time consumed, between shots. This interval of time, 1.6 seconds requires (at least) 42 frames of the film because it takes 1.6 seconds = 42 frames @ 18 frames per second). 

This knowledge and understanding its significance will prove important shortly.

According to the Warren Commission, the first shot missed and was fired sometime prior to the Presidential limousine passing behind the Stemmons Freeway road sign as seen in the Zapruder Film.

In the early 1990s, I spoke personally with JFK Assassination witness and photographer, Phillip Willis, and talked to him by phone on several occasions in 1992 (negotiating my purchase of copies of his JFK assassination slides). And in one conversation in particular, before we closed the deal to buy his slides, Willis told me that he actually took his 5th photo at Z-189 immediately after hearing what he considered to be the first shot. 

This is important: -> Philip Willis told me that after hearing the first shot and taking his 1st photo, he noticed that after being shot, the President slid off his seat and fell forward into the car.

Secret Service Man’s Testimony Affirms Phillip Willis’ Account

Willis’ statement to me was also verified by Secret Service Agent Glenn Bennett who also noticed Kennedy being struck in the back after he made a passing glance at the President after hearing the noise of the first gunshot.

In 1990, I obtained two color photos taken in the White House garage and two additional color negatives taken in the White House garage on the weekend of the JFK Assassination.

After purchasing the color photo of CE-352 from the National Archives, I noticed upon close examination that there appeared to be a hole with a bullet protruding from the rear seat that upon checking, the hole aligned with the bullet that would have entered Kennedy’s back at exactly the level of  T-3 (the 3rdthoracic vertebra of his spine, i.e. between the shoulder blades.

Going back to the exact date of 11/23/1963, I personally handled the James Altgens fax photo that came across the AP Wire while I was working in the “composing room” at the Dayton Daily News. I saw the first wire copy of the ORIGINAL James Altgens photograph of JFK’s assassination, showing the President as seen through the front windshield, clutching at his throat and with Jackie offering support.

Then during the first week of December 1963, I went with Ralph McGill, syndicated columnist (for Hess and Eisenhardt) in Cincinnati to examine the Presidential limousine that had arrived in Dayton and was driven to Hess’s garage to be repaired for Lyndon Johnson, the new president.

From memory, I can recall that I talked to Willard Hess who told me that the Presidential windshield was being replaced because of some “bullet damage” to the windshield, which had been removed in Detroit prior to the limousine’s arrival at his Cincinnati garage.

Then on December 14, 1963, I purchased a copy of the Saturday Evening Post, which showed an almost complete copy of the Altgens  photo in that edition. Looking closely at the photograph, I noticed what appeared to be a bullet hole just to the right of the centered rear view mirror!

In 1989, I obtained a color negative, showing the front of the limousine in the White House garage. In examining a color print I made from the negative, I noticed micro glass traces where it appeared to be the entrance area into the windshield where a spiral bullet hole is seen in the Altgens photo, which had appeared in the Saturday Evening Post edition of December 14th, 1963, noted above.

Vincent DiMaio’s “Gunshot Wounds”

In 1985, I had purchased a book called Gunshot Wounds” by Vincent DiMaio. The book on forensic aspects of gunshot wounds dealt with wounds caused by shots that had killed individuals, fried through glass. This book proved to be very important to me after noticing a color photo owned by James Fox that showed near to where a tracheotomy was performed at Parkland to enhance Kennedy’s breathing. In comparing glass stippling that occurred when bullets passed through glass the bullet produced small glass shards that surrounded the point of entry, where a bullet or glass shards entered some of the bodies shown in DiMaio’s book.

It appeared to be the same or similar type of scarring that appeared around President Kennedy’s throat as it was later learned that a bullet hole entry had occurred where the tracheotomy was performed by Dr. Malcolm Perry in the Parkland Hospital Emergency Room.

This in my opinion confirms an entrance wound causing the throat wound to the President throat.  The direction of the shot (frontal) through the windshield, and the scarring mentioned in DiMaio’s book and seen around the throat wound suggest  that the throat wound was the result of a frontal entry shot with more solid proof supporting it (including Parkland Hospital medical witnesses, both doctors and nurses) than the SBT and the Magic Bullet Theory, which have no supporting evidence (beside the altered US Navy corpsman drawing ordered to be altered by Gerald Ford, who had the Navy artist re-render the drawing with the back wound MOVED UP 6-8 INCHES to appear to be on the neck region rather than the 3rd thoracic vertebra, between the shoulder blades.

In a LIFE Magazine article about Governor Wallace’s shooting in 1968, it was mentioned (and shown) that when the Governor was shot, a Secret Service agent was also shot in the throat from the front. If one examines the Agent’s reactions after being shot in the throat, he reacted exactly like President Kennedy did, placing his left hand over his throat wound.  The reason for this reaction was in order to be able to take a breathe IN, the man had to cover the wound entry hole, to plug it, so as to be able to take a breath IN. After taking a gasping breath in, the victim had to cough strongly to expel the air and the blood inhaled.

This can be proven by studying certain frames of The Zapruder Film

Click the link below to study sequential frames Z-001 through Z-489, courtesy of The Deep Politics Forum

https://deeppoliticsforum.com/forums/showthread.php?2889-Full-Zapruder-film-in-sequential-frames-Numbers-001-486#.Uz-JKahdWKI

If one closely examines frame Z-222 of The Z Film, one will notice a white spot that appears embedded in the right hand corner of the Stemmons Freeway road sign (at Z-222) as the Kennedy limo emerges from behind the Stemmons road sign. If you study this frame closely, a white object appears suddenly. 

That object is in truth was a white dog, a puppet or dog doll, that Jackie Kennedy had received by hand as a gift at Love Field during that brief interaction with the crowd as they walked to the limousine.

The puppet was a “white dog” that she testified (before Arlen Specter) affirming having seen as the Presidential approached her and AFTER President Kennedy was shot.

Jean Hill testified before Arlen Specter that she had seen the “white dog” in JFK’s lap (not shown in the early parts of the doctored version of the Zapruder Film).  

This white dog puppet, given to Jackie by a fan at Love Field, can be seen as a white spot that appears after the limo passes the Stemmons Freeway sign an becomes more visible as Kennedy comes into view. The apex of the rising of the white spot is seen in frame Z-230, which begs the question: What made the white dog puppet rise up and fall back down?

The answer is that when President Kennedy was shot in the back, the President reacted strongly standing and falling back down. 

Warren Commission Exhibit CE-352 - Back Seat of Presidential Limousine

Photo Taken at Parkland Hospital shows white puppet (seen  in Z Frames Z-223 through Z-227)  in back seeat.  

Enhanced photo, enlargement and inset by Robert D. Morningstar (Copyright 2014)

In 1992, I obtained a color photo from the National Achives, namely, CE-352. In this photo, we can see that Jean Hill observed on President Kennedy’s lap is really there in the photo. The white puppet is in the left hand corner of the bloody rear seat. 

The object is, in fact, exactly what Jean Hill described as “a white dog” to Arlen Specter. The WC Counsel’s arrogant response was to tell Jean Hill: 

“You’re crazy!”

However, the object seen in CE-352 turns out to be a white stuffed animal, validating Jean Hill’s testimony, and discrediting Arlen Specter whom history is showing to be one of the masterminds of the cover-up of the murder of the President of the United States, and thereby, a co-conspirator in the assassination of JFK.

So, when we take note of the object seen in Z-230, it is clear that Kennedy had been shot at least 1/3 of a second earlier. By then closely examining frame Z-224, we can see that Governor John B. Connally showed no sign at all of having being struck by any bullet at that time.

It should be mentioned that in frame Z-224 that both Governor Connally’s lapel and Secret Service Agent William Greer’s suit lapel both flipped at the same time.

How could this happen?

In Dallas 1996, while riding in JFK’s position in Paul Crute’s 1964 Presidential reproduction Lincoln limousine convertible, as we drove by on a Dallas street, a sprinkler head watering a lawn broke off. When it did so, a jet of water from the broken head hit me. At that moment, Paul Crute tapped the brakes and I was jolted and thrust violently forward.

This showed me that the 2 simultaneous “lapel flips” could only have been caused by Secret Service Agent Bill Greer tapping on the brakes, slowing the car (as indicated by Senator Ralph Yarborough in his WCR testimony, more details below).

The flipping over of the Governor Connally’s Stetson’s hat is also explained by the same cause… Greer hit the brakes several times, sometimes slowing and twice stopping the limousine completely (as testified to by many witnesses in Dealey Plaza, most notably, Senator Ralph Yarboroug who described both stops (a “near stop” at the sign, and “a complete stop” near the Grassy Knoll “before the cavalcade got going.”

In 2003, I presented a poster board exhibiton in Pittsburgh at the 40th anniversary of Kennedy’s death. It was called: “The Case Against the Single Bullet Theory, as is this article.

In it, I present a theory that Governor Connally was first shot at Z-237 from the knoll.

My theory was backed by blood groupings appearing in photo CE-352 near where Jacqueline was sitting.

In CE-837, I noticed a knife cut in the same area to remove what I considered a bullet. Later I learned that th entire rear seat was cut up prior to it being delivered to Detroit where the windshield was destroyed.

Now, going back in time to 1993,  I attended “The Midwest Symposium on Political Assassinations” in Chicago, to learn more, and specifically to hear the midnight speech that Robert Morningstar presented on Gestalt psychology, which he demonstrated to have been employed to alter the Zapruder film radically. 

At the same lecture, Morningstar revealed a still frame, Cray supercomputer enhanced photo of the condensation vapor trials captured in the Zapruder Film, proving that the assassination was carried out by multiple shooters some from the front and some from behind. Moreover, the vapor trails uncovered by Robert Morningstar also revealed the positions of the shooters, atop the Dallas County Records Building and on the Grassy Knoll.

In his presentation, Robert Morningstar showed a vapor trail that can be seen in the Zapruder Film at Frame Z-295. 

This trail was seen and described as a “high head shot” seen by Secret Service Agent Glen Bennett and described in the Warren Commission report, in which Bennet described seeing “a bullet strike the right side high of the President’s head.”  

I had also noticed this in the movie “JFK,” by Oliver Stone, and I traveled to Dallas 2 years later to meet Robert Morningstar at the Dallas Lancer JFK Assassination Conference. We met yet again in Dallas 2 years later in 1996 when we were both invited by Prof. James Fetzer to be part of a closed panel of JFK assassination experts who gathered together at the Lancer Conference to analyze the alterations and to “disassemble the illusions” created by the alterations used to hide the presence of multiple shooters that the undoctored, untampered version of the Z-Film really shows.

By chance, many years before, in 1958, I attended a science fair at the University of Chicago in which I presented a home-made Wilson Cloud Chamber. It was made with a one-gallon fish tank, dry ice in the bottom of the tank and at the top a copper plate to which I applied a hot iron to create a “Cloud Chamber.”

In it, as the iron heated up a fine water vapor mist appeared inside the fish tank. Then, using my old camera, which contained Kodachrome film, I was able to photograph Alpha and Beta particle trails (aka “Cosmic Rays”) that were revealed to be streaking through in the aquarium tank (then become a “Wilson Cloud Chamber”). So, the “condensation trail” phenomenon is a well known one and operant from the atomic level to the molecular level in ballistics, as demonstrated by Robert Morningstar in Chicago and in Dallas.

Investigating the Dallas weather report for the morning of November 22nd, 1963, it turned out that in Dealey Plaza the morning of the assassination it had rained steadily all night, and the temperature was 37* (degrees F.) at 9:00 a.m. 

But by 12:30, the Sun had broken out and the temperature rose rapidly to 68* F. with the air becoming extremely hot and humid. The high temp that day reached 70* F., rising 33* degrees in just the time it took to slay the President.

This change in temperature, as well as uncomfortable humidity was described explicitly and in detail by Jackie Kennedy during her Warren Commission testimony. Jackie stated that because she was wearing a woolen dress she was feeling very hot and in the muggy atmosphere as the air conditioning going full blast was useless in the open car.

The temperature of 67* confirmed by Willis’s photograph #12 as the temperature was recorded on the billboard of the Hertz sign atop the TSBD.

Jackie stated to the Warren Commission that she had looked ahead and seen the Triple Underpass coming up ahead and thought of it as a welcome source of momentary shade that would relieve them for an instant from the glaring sun, the heat and the humidity. 

It was within a few moments after that thought passed through her head that President Kennedy was killed as bullets from behind and from the front passed through his head, one from behind and 2 from front, and NOT from the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD).

Using this information, applied to bullets going faster than 1100 feet per second, and because Kodachrome film used by Abraham Zapruder (containing Silver halide), I found that Zapruder’s Bell & Howell Optronic Eye movie was perfectly capable of capturing a ballistic trails moving through the atmosphere and could be tracked on the film going on directly to strike the President’s skull, at Z-295 and at Z-313, which when compared to each other, prove that Z-295 came from a high position to the REAR LEFT of the limousine, and that the shot at Z-313 came directly from Zapruder’s right side from the area of the Grassy Knoll.

All 8mm films used in 1963 by other camera men and women (Nix, Towner, Hughes, Bell, et al) also contained silver Halide in the Kodachrome film that they used to film the Presidential limousine as it traveled  slowly down Elm Street on its fateful journey.

 

Right

In closely examining frame Z-295 of the Zapurder film it becomes clear that a vapor trail appeared to hit near the right side parietal area of the President’s skull as he is hit from behind.

This bullet, as shown by Robert Morningstar in 1992, struck the top right side of the President’s head and then went on to strike Governor Connally, with the bullet, which continued on ricocheting off President Kennedy to leave another  visible vapor trail showing that it continued on to strike Governor Connally in the back where it transited through his chest. 

In my opinion, Frame Z-295 is the most valuable frame in the Zapruder film because it proves conclusively that Governor Connally was first struck in the back at that moment, not any earlier as assumed by the Warren Commission counsel (Arlen Specter), and thus destroying the Single Bullet  Theory, finally putting to rest the “Magic Bullet Fraud.”

In closing, my investigation indicates that there were (at least) six shots;

1. Z-189, President Kennedy was struck in the back from the rear, angle indicates source to be the Dal-Tex Building;

2. Z-216, a front shot through the windshield causing President Kennedy’s throat wound, a ballistic (vapor) trail can be seen  over Stemmons Freeway road sign.

3. Z-237 Governor Connally was shot from the Front, shattering his right wrist.

4. Z-295 proves rear shot causied Kennedy’s rear side skull wound and Governor Connally’s back. Take note that the wound to Connally’s left thigh was a partial fragment that was never removed because it lay too close to the femoral artery and so was left inside the Governor, and which he carried to his grave.

5. Z-313 head shot to Kennedy from the front from three possible locations;

6. Z329 a shot from behind missed the President, striking the chrome strip between the two visors from the rear, causing damage to the stem holder of the rear view mirror, breaking it, with the front of the rear view mirror to be pushed inward.

How LBJ Killed JFK: Money, Attorneys, and the Kennedy Assassination Conspiracy Theory

Oliver Barr McClellan, entrepreneur, counsel and author, born in 1939 in Cuero (aka Rawhide), Texas, became widely known by his 2003 book Blood, Money & Power on the Kennedy assassination. He has also written on globalization. McClellan published Blood, Money & Power: How LBJ Killed JFK, which became a best-seller in November 2003. In the book, McClellan presents the theory that Lyndon B. Johnson and Austin attorney Edward A. Clark were involved in the planning and cover-up of the Kennedy assassination. McClellan also names Malcolm Mac Wallace as one of the assassins. The book includes allegations surrounding the theft of the 1948 Senate election,[1] an Austin murder by Wallace, and a belated grand jury action regarding Johnson in another murder by Wallace. The killing of Kennedy, McClellan alleges, was paid for by oil millionaires, including Clint Murchison, Sr. and H. L. Hunt. McClellan purports that Clark got $6 million for this work, including a $2 million bonus. McClellan notes the conspiracy background disclosed in the book shows how some power lawyers abuse the legal and political systems. Extensive citations are in the book. French journalist William Reymond published a book the same year in which he claims that Cliff Carter and Malcolm Wallace were key to helping plot the murder of JFK. McClellan's book has been translated into Japanese. McClellan is completing the sequel to his first book, which purportedly will disclose what he alleges to be a continuing cover-up, as well as new insights into the Kennedy family. After McClellan repeated his allegations against Johnson in the documentary The Men Who Killed Kennedy, broadcast on The History Channel on November 18, 2003,[2] former presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter protested, and former LBJ staffers Bill Moyers and Jack Valenti asked The History Channel to investigate the charges. On April 2, 2004, after having three historians examine the charges, The History Channel issued a press release stating that the claim of LBJ's complicity is entirely unfounded and does not hold up to scrutiny. [The show] fell short of the high standards that the network sets for itself. The History Channel apologizes to its viewers and to Mrs. [Lady Bird] Johnson and her family for airing the show.[3] In addition to disclosing the many motivations for Johnson, McClellan states that the assassination of Kennedy allowed the oil depletion allowance to be kept at 27.5 percent. It remained unchanged during the Johnson presidency. According to McClellan this resulted in a saving of over 100 million dollars to the American oil industry. In 1970, during President Richard Nixon's term, the oil depletion allowance dropped to 15 percent. It was not until the arrival of President Jimmy Carter that the oil depletion allowance was removed. McClellan also wrote Made in the USA: Global Greed, Bad Tax Laws and The Exportation of America's Future published in June 2010 by Hannover House. Taking a positive look at the greatest generations since 1945, McClellan notes Pax Americana was in place by 1990. He traces the subsequent collapse of the economy to government-induced programs for an unacceptable imbalance of trade, declining family income, unworkable mortgages, high prices at the pump, and collapsing billfolds forcing homeowners to walk away from their homes. Banks also collapsed and then the economy collapsed. This tragedy for individuals and families is not acceptable; however, after two years, the economy has not recovered and jobs have not been available. Recommending initiatives to buy America with strong support for private enterprise, McClellan says open trade must replace free trade in the new paradigm of ten common markets. The budget and trade deficits will be corrected by encouraging American free enterprise. Extensive citations are in the book. Emphasizing the human side, the book shows the impact on individuals from economic policies

FW: THIS IS MAJOR GOOD NEWS!!!!!!! New Hampshire Adopts Jury Nullification Law

Henry Morgan relays:

Wooo hoooo   this is a major milestone towards restoring the People's  control over law and government.    While I would have favored stronger, more explicit language......New Hampshire is the first state to return, by law, to recognizing the right of the defendant and/or his counsel to inform the jury of their right to judge the law as well as the facts!!!!! ......

 

which flies in the face of the almost universal position of the judiciary......that while the jury does indeed have the right to nullify the law (find not-guilty in spite of the facts) that neither the defense nor his counsel may inform/remind the jury of that right......nor argue that issue as a defense. (ie "I should be found not guilty because the  law itself is ridiculous and shouldn't be a law in the first place.")   (That's how we got rid of the runaway slave laws....by the way.  Juries in the North began to universally exercise their right to nullify the law by refusing to convict.)

 

Given this monumental achievement in New Hampshire ....... hopefully the other states will follow suit.....and

perhaps there's even reason to be hopeful of restoring direct grand jury access to the People as well!!!!

(So that criminal complaints can be lodged directly by citizens against police and public officials who abuse their power, for example.)  

 

 

 

 

 

New Hampshire Adopts Jury Nullification Law

http://libertycrier.com/new-hampshire-adopts-jury-nullification-law/

Jury nullification, in which jurors refuse to convict defendants under laws they find objectionable or inappropriately applied, is a favored tactic of many libertarians who advocate individual liberty. They like the idea of a tool that can be wielded on the spot to shield people from powerful control freaks. But nullification is useful only if people know about. And last week, New Hampshire’s governor signed a law requiring the state’s judges to permit defense attorneys to inform jurors of their right to nullify the law.

On June 18, Governor John Lynch signed HB 146, which reads:

...a Right of Accused. In all criminal proceedings the court shall permit the defense to inform the jury of its right to judge the facts and the application of the law in relation to the facts in controversy.

Short, simple and to the point. Nullification advocate Tim Lynch, of the Cato Institute, thinks it’s a step in the right direction, though not necessarily a game-changer. Says he:

"This is definitely a step forward for advocates of jury trial.  Allowing counsel to speak directly to the jury about this subject is something that is not allowed in all the courthouses outside of New Hampshire. So, this is good.  I am concerned, however, that this language does not go far enough. We don’t know how much pressure trial judges will exert on defense counsel."


 

At last! Jury nullification is brought into the open and breathing new life into the Constitution. It's about time.

 

Somebody finally figured out that the common people who comprise juries are the final arbiters of the law, not prosecutors or judges. It means that, from now on, juries in New Hampshire will be guaranteed their Constitutional right to judge the law.

 

Remember New Hampshire's state motto... "Live Free or Die."  The people of New Hampshire are certainly showing us the way to guarantee every man a fair trial.
