Research JFK assassination, Reddit style (epicly [funny - with caveat] stupid article re: JFK assassination [a lame attempt by the Boston Globe to get subscribers especially by those who would like to comment on this idiotic "Opinion" piece?] = Fail)

The only thing funny was the author's attempt to write an Opinion piece he thought was funny. Well here it is:

If anyone happens upon this post then they can follow the related link for information to research. Some may be bogus but there is a lot that isn't,.. much of it deserving of study.

Welcome to the 'JFK Murder Truth telling - Heading to the Grassy Knoll on November 22nd - 50th Anniversary' mega research post Mr. Alex Beam. [Note: See related link at bottom.]

Comments on Research JFK assassination, Reddit style, an Opinion piece by Boston Globe Staff Writer Alex Beam:

    This is droll, but it sort of makes me less sympathetic with the plight of newspapers like the Globe. If Globe writers have such contempt for Internet posters, why should posters care what happens to them? And then there's the issue of Kennedy's assassination. Serious writers before the Internet was born (Norman Mailer and Mort Saul [Sahl] for two — and yes, Sahl was serious) pointed out several problems with the investigation following the assassination. The whole process, including Oswald's murder, right under the nose of the Dallas police, and the sequestering of evidence for a half-century or so, was somewhere between suspect and outrageous. Is this really a decent vehicle for lampooning Internet posters? Next time, maybe ebola victims can be used. I'm sure a lot of inane things can be said about them too.

    The mainstream press swallowed the Warren Commission report hook line and sinker! The House Select Committee on Assassinations contains the most accurate findings on JFK's and MLK's murders. They concluded that both assassinations were the result of conspiracies and two thirds of the American people agree. The mainstream press keep covering up their ineptitude in this case and hope it goes away.

      I look at it this way,who was worried about JFK and MLK and came to the conclusion Big bussiness and the Government.The two assassins were paid pawns.That is my belief.

    The internet posters on Reddit, many of them naive children, are such an easy target. It's almost too easy. However, they couldn't have done worse than the Warren Commission. If Mr. Beam really believes that fable, he is dumber and more naive than the Reddit gang he mocks.

    There are 4-5 books out in the last four years that shed light on the high -level conspiracy that led to the death of JFK and the role LBJ played in it. 

    The best, in my opinion, is: Blood, Money, & Power, How LBJ Killed JFK by Barr McClellan. McClellan, an Austin attorney, is the former law partner of LBJ's personal lawyer.

      That's why the Obama administration (which refuses to release government files) and the Globe don't want you to know.

    In 1992 Congress passed the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act which set up an independent Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) to oversee the process of releasing formerly secret documents from the FBI, CIA, Warren Commission, House Select Committee on Assassinations, and various other government agencies. Between 1992 and 1998 the ARRB declassified over 5 million documents. 

    Still, as this newspaper reported on November 25, 2013, "Troves of files on JFK assassination remain secret" (see http://www.bostonglobe.com/2013/11/25/government-still-withholding-thousands-documents-jfk-assassination/PvBM2PCgW1H11vadQ4Wp4H/story.html)--although these still-protected government records are supposed to be made public in 2017.

    Thankfully in the meantime, several private research groups (such as www.maryferrell.org and www.aarclibrary.org for example) have created searchable electronic libraries of released materials which would probably otherwise be overwhelmingly undigestible. 

    In his 2013 book, "A Cruel and Shocking Act: The Secret History of the Kennedy Assassination," veteran New York Times investigative reporter Philip Shenon wrote: "The Kennedy assassination is the most written about--and without a doubt, most misunderstood--event in modern history." He described debate about the assassination as an "absolute morass." 

    But he also said that the internet-accessible databases that Jefferson Morley described (much to the frivolous amusement of Globe columnist Alex Beam) as "usher[ing] in a new era of Kennedy assassination research," also gave Shenon and other serious investigators an "all-important head start in trying to make sense of what is easily the most complicated story I have ever pursued." 

    I am grateful for the difficult work they have done; and, lo the many years, I am confident they will keep at it. -Dan Currie, Dorchester

    typical of this guy, he mixes his mocking imitations of faux assassination theories with actual theories in order to bismirch all such theories. whoever actually killed kennedy, I certainly don't know who or what did it, only a fool could still believe the government sponsored warren commission cover up.

    and this from a guy whose latest book sentimentalized a leader of a racist, sexist religious cult that particpated in mass murder of people for the "crime" of attempting to pass thru utah.

    Beam's goal is to manipulate us without us ever knowing that we're being manipulated. But Beam and his fellow cover-up propagandists still have a long way to go. According to an AP-GfK April, 2013 poll, 59 percent of Americans think multiple people were involved in a conspiracy to kill JFK.

      Looks like you too didn't see the humor in Beam's piece. That's all he was doing; having a bit of fun with the JFK conspiracy world.

      observertoo, I don't agree. Beam's goal was to ridicule and discredit JFK asassination conspiracy supporters. It's a periodic thing with the Globe; last Nov. 10th Jim Carroll wrote a Globe piece wherein he said, "...conspiracy-mindedness undercuts the civic maturity that is necessary for a commonwealth to function responsibly." So, I see the Globe, Beam, and Carroll as "cover-up propagandists." It's all well planned.

    Superficially amusing, but ultimately tasteless in the extreme to mock anything to do with President Kennedy's assassination. Typical Beam style and fare.

    According to Wikipedia, here are the Reddit demographics:

    "According to Google Ad Planner's estimate, as of May 2013, the median Reddit user is male (59%), 18–29 years of age, and is connecting from the United States. Pewinternet.org has stated that 6% of all adult internet users use Reddit."

    Alex Beam has selected a narrow audience for this silly column.

    Obama announced that US government archives would still be kept secret. What is the government hiding? 

    And the Boston Globe doesn't want you know what happened.

    Around the 50 the anniversary, the National Enquirer and the Globe weekly magazine reported that over the years 100 (!) people who either said they had knowledge of the assassination or were investigating it suddenly died under "Mysterious" circumstances.

    Zapruder Frame 317 shows a bullet hit on JFK’s right temple (the side of his head behind his right eye). Zapruder Frame 317 can’t tell us whether this is an entrance or exit wound. If it’s an entrance wound, there was definitely a second shooter on the grassy knoll. If it’s an exit wound, given that immediately preceding Zapruder Frames show JFK looking straight ahead and given the angle of a rear shot going through JFK’s right temple, there was definitely a second shooter to the right of the book depository (as you look to the rear from the viewpoint of the presidential limousine). Seehttp://www.jfkpage.com/temple_wound/. For the final shot to have originated from the book depository, you’d need a really magic bullet.

    Lee Harvey Oswald tested negative for paraffin when given a paraffin test on his cheeks. However, ALL of the FBI agents that later in experiments fired a 1940 Mannlicher-Carcano rifle (like Oswald's) tested positive for paraffin on their cheeks. Futher, all the doctors treating JFK at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas concluded that one of the shots entered JFK's throat and exited his neck (not vice versa). See http://www.usnews.com/debate-club/was-jfks-assassination-a-conspiracy/multiple-shots-prove-jfk-assassination-was-a-conspiracy. Oswald's rifle was a a 6.5 mm Mannichler-Carcano Model 91/38 rifle, mfgd. 1940 in Italy. It is so inaccurate that jokesters call it "the humanitarian rifle." Oswald himself, using this same WW-II surplus rifle on April 10, 1963, failed to hit his intended assassination target (retired, zealously anti-communist Army General Edwin Walker) less than 100 feet away. Therefore, to a virtual certainty, we can conclude that Oswald did NOT use this rifle to hit JFK's head in a limousine traveling 1,000 feet away. Somebody killed JFK, but it wasn't Lee Harvey Oswald.

      Correction: My second-last sentence should say, "in a limousine traveling 265 feet away."

    Here is an excellent example of why the public has such a low opinion of the mainstream media. The evidence is overwhelming that John F. Kennedy was assassinated as the result of a conspiracy. The same goes with Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy. Yet smarmy tools like Alex Beam feel it is beneath them to question the official doctrine. Their job is government-sanctioned stenography, not independent journalism. They honestly think that their distain for the term "conspiracy theory" is a sign of intelligence. Oh, the irony. The biggest stories of our time fall through the cracks of history thanks to their unyielding bowing and scraping to authority. Well done, Beam.

    It is my blog since 2005. [Names are easily found]. I take it you aren't interested in research on the JFK Assassination as per your article poking fun on the subject? I haven't kept up on the latest news coverage for about a month or so but I did check today what was out there and found your opinion piece. Anyways I didn't quite catch the point of the piece unless it was to poke fun in general on the subject of the JFK Assassination which isn't really a laughing matter?
