Last Friday, President Trump made the following announcement:

I have decided not to block release of the CIA’s remaining JFK-assassination related records except for those records that directly implicate the CIA in the assassination, which will continue to remain secret.”

Okay, he didn’t really put it like that. But that’s the potential and likely import of his announcement, which actually read as follows:

Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.” (Italics added.)

The operative words, of course, are: “Subject to the receipt of further information….”

What is going on here?

Negotiations. The art of the deal. The CIA desperately does not want to show the American people its long-secret JFK-related records. It has asked Trump to continue keeping at least some of them secret notwithstanding the passage of more than 50 years since the Kennedy assassination.

Under long-established custom and tradition in Washington, D.C., when someone asks someone else for a favor, the person who is in a position to grant the favor demands something in return. That’s where the negotiations between Trump and the CIA come into play. Trump wants something in return. We don’t know what — maybe laying off on the Russia investigation — but his announcement last Friday is obviously part of the concluding steps of such negotiations.

What Trump has done with his announcement is send a clear message to the CIA: “Give me what I want and I’ll give you want you want. Otherwise, I will let all your cherished long-secret records relating to the JFK assassination be shown to the American people.”

Make no mistake about it: A deal is about to be made. The CIA will cave. It will end up giving Trump whatever it is he wants. Trump is in the driver’s seat because the CIA cannot afford to permit the American people to see the records it wants to continue to be kept secret. And once the CIA gives Trump what he wants, he will cave and give the CIA the continued secrecy it so desperately needs. All this will happen by this Thursday, the date set by law for release of all the JFK records that Trump has not blocked.

Think about it: The CIA has asked the president to continue secrecy of records that are more than 50 years old or, apparently, some relating to secret correspondence between the CIA and the Assassination Records Review Board back in the 1990s.

The CIA’s ground? “National security” of course, the two most important and meaningless words in the American political lexicon.

National security? Really?

Whatever definition that one might put on that nebulous term, no reasonable person can honestly believe that the release of 50-year-old records are going to result in the United States falling into the ocean or even that the communists are going to take over the federal government.

The CIA says that releasing its decades-old JFK records will reveal secret “methods” of intelligence gathering.

Really? What, like the CIA was using typewriters instead of computers and pay telephones instead of cell phones?

What is amazing (or not) is the extreme nonchalance of the mainstream media to the CIA’s request for continued secrecy. That should be big news. It’s essentially an admission of guilt, given that it is absolutely ludicrous to think that “national security” would be threatened by the release of the CIA’s long-secret JFK-assassination-related records.

You see, the mainstream media starts with the assumption that the CIA had nothing to do with the assassination. In their minds, the assassination was committed by a lone nut former U.S. Marine communist, one who had no motive to kill the president.

Such being the case, the mainstream media, deferring to the CIA , automatically concludes that its wish to continue keeping secret has to be based on “national security” grounds rather than an attempt by the CIA to continue its cover-up of its assassination of the president.

Let’s proceed from the opposite assumption: That the CIA , in partnership with the military and the Mafia, orchestrated the assassination by framing a former U.S. Marine who was then working for U.S. intelligence, either Navy intelligence, the CIA, or the FBI, or a combination of all three.

Don’t forget, after all, that that’s what Oswald said. He said he was being framed. Yet, from the very beginning, the mainstream media has never given any serious consideration to the possibility that Oswald was framed for the crime. Instead, they have steadfastly stuck with the official story, one that has all the characteristics of a pat frame-up: That Oswald acted alone or possibly acted in concert with others, both of which lead to nothing but dead ends, contradictions, and anomalies.

Now, let’s assume instead that Oswald was telling the truth when he said he was being framed. In that case, it would be imperative that the CIA and the military keep as tight a lid on their records as possible to ensure that investigators or investigative reporters would have a difficult time piercing through to the circumstantial evidence that establishes the frame-up.

As part of the frame-up, the CIA would have to fortify the persona of Oswald, its intelligence agent, as a purported communist. That would enable the CIA to blame the assassination on a communist, which, not coincidentally, was the advice that the Pentagon and the CIA were doling out to Latin American military dictatorships at the School of the Americas. In cases of covert state-sponsored assassinations, Latin American regimes were taught, a good strategy was to blame the assassination on a communist because then they could smear anyone who challenged the official story as a communist sympathizer.

It would also explain why the CIA was closely monitoring Oswald’s movements prior to the assassination, something else that the CIA kept secret for decades. They had to make certain that Oswald was not on to them and had not discovered that he was being set up for a frame-up.

The first organization that came out with a press release advertising Oswald’s bona fides was the DRE, an anti-communist group in New Orleans with which Oswald had had contact. What no one knew at the time, and what the CIA intentionally kept secret for decades, was that the DRE was a CIA front organization. It was being generously funded by the CIA and controlled by a secret CIA agent named George Joannides, which the CIA would intentionally keep secret from the Warren Commission in the 1960s, the House Select Committee in the 1970s, and the Assassination Records Review Board in the 1990s.

But there was another big operation to establish Oswald’s communist bona fides before the assassination. It had to do with Oswald’s trip to Mexico City, where he visited the Cuban and Soviet embassies.

Something dreadful obviously went wrong with that part of the operation because the official investigation into it was quickly shut down during the early post-assassination period. Today, Oswald’s Mexico City trip, which is part of those CIA records ready to be released, is still shrouded in mystery.

The CIA’s continued secrecy in the JFK assassination is no big surprise. As I wrote in my October 11 article, “Will Trump Make a Deal with the CIA on JFK Records?,” the CIA is between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, it knows that those records will further implicate the CIA in the Kennedy assassination. On the other hand, it knows that by seeking continued secrecy, it’s essentially an implicit acknowledgement of guilt.

Not surprisingly, it is choosing the latter course, especially because it knows that its assets and allies in the mainstream press will continue to come to its defense with respect to its ridiculous claim of “national security.”

Do the CIA’s long-secret records contain a video-taped confession? Of course not. And they don’t contain any reference to assassinating Kennedy. The CIA’s practice from the very beginning has been to not put any reference to a state-sponsored assassination into writing.

But there has to be a reason why the CIA chose to keep this particular batch of records secret for more than 50 years. Those long-secret records undoubtedly include small bits of important circumstantial evidence that fill out even further the mosaic of a regime-change operation that took place in Dallas in November 1963, the same types of regime-change operation that took place in Iran in 1953, Guatemala in 1954, Cuba in 1960-1963, Congo in 1961, and Chile in 1973, all of which the CIA steadfastly kept secret from the American people.

In 1953, the CIA was in the process of developing a top-secret manual on assassinations, one that showed that the CIA was specializing not only in the art of assassination but also in the art of covering up its role in state-sponsored assassinations. Every American owes it to himself to read that manual.

Too bad the mainstream press has never given that manual the consideration it deserves. If it did, it might not be so deferential to the deal that Trump and the CIA are about to make to continue the JFK assassination cover-up by continuing to keep some of the CIA’s decades-old JFK’s related assassination records secret from the American people.

That’s where the negotiations between Trump and the CIA come into play. Trump wants something in return. We don’t know what...

Maybe in exchange, Trump would like some actual transparency and honesty. And investigating legit matters that concern the previous CiC and the Dem candidate's numerous cases of abuse and disrespect of the Constitution.

I would gladly let the CIA keep their JFK secret...

...were they to promise to start again from scratch and truly fulfill their original stated obligation and intent instead of being weaponized and held accountable to no one.

Removing all of Zero's anti-America holdovers would be a great start. Turn over a new leaf, and begin by focusing resources on preventing further Globalist Puppets from sabotaging America.

How Good a Shot was Oswald?

Oswald’s Marine Rifle Marksmanship Scores

In the late 1950s, US Marines were categorised at three levels of shooting ability, according to the scores they achieved at a standardised test of their accuracy:

  1. Expert: a score of 220 to 250.
  2. Sharpshooter: 210 to 219.
  3. Marksman: 190 to 209.

According to his Marine score card (Commission Exhibit 239), Oswald was tested twice:

  1. In December 1956, after “a very intensive 3 weeks’ training period” (Warren Commission Hearings, vol.11, p.302), Oswald scored 212: two marks above the minimum for a ‘sharpshooter’.
  2. In May 1959, he scored 191: one mark above the minimum for a ‘marksman’.

Colonel Allison Folsom interpreted the results for the Warren Commission:

The Marine Corps consider that any reasonable application of the instructions given to Marines should permit them to become qualified at least as a marksman. To become qualified as a sharpshooter, the Marine Corps is of the opinion that most Marines with a reasonable amount of adaptability to weapons firing can become so qualified. Consequently, a low marksman qualification indicates a rather poor “shot” and a sharpshooter qualification indicates a fairly good “shot”.

(Warren Commission Hearings, vol.19, pp.17f)

Although the distance from Oswald’s supposed location to JFK’s car was never more than about 90 yards (82 metres) during the shooting, several factors increased the difficulty of the act:

  • the presidential limousine was moving away from the gunman’s location;
  • the car was obscured for some of the time by an oak tree;
  • all the shots had to have been fired within a very short space of time;
  • and, most importantly, the only rifle that could have been used was awkward and unpredictable.

    A bullet was discovered on a stretcher outside the operating theatre in Parkland Hospital, Dallas, at around the time when Governor Connally was undergoing emergency surgery. The Warren Commission was told that this bullet was of the same type as those found on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, and that it had been fired from the rifle discovered on the sixth floor.1

    Several problems soon emerged with the nature and provenance of what became known, derisively, as the magic bullet.

    The Magic Bullet: Commission Exhibit 399

    It became clear that this bullet alone could not have caused all of Connally’s injuries:

    • Despite the great destruction it had apparently caused, the bullet had suffered very little damage. Its base was slightly squashed, and its copper sheath possessed several fine scratches, but the bullet was otherwise intact. It was supposed to have destroyed four inches of one of Connally’s ribs and shattered the radius bone in his wrist, one of the densest bones in the human body. To determine whether the condition of the bullet was consistent with these injuries, two sets of tests were conducted:
      • The US Army fired ten similar bullets into the wrists of human cadavers. In all ten cases, the bullets were severely damaged.2
      • The FBI fired two bullets into tubes of cotton. Both of these bullets displayed a minimal amount of damage, just like CE 399.3
    • More metal had been deposited in Governor Connally’s wounds than was missing from the bullet. The surgeons who operated on Connally noted several tiny fragments of bullet lead in his wrist, as well as a larger fragment in his thigh. Other fragments may well have been washed out when the wounds to the torso and wrist were cleaned prior to surgery. The only part of the CE 399 bullet which was not sheathed in copper, and from which the lead fragments could have come, was the base, but the only piece missing from the base was a very small sample taken by the FBI for testing. Even without that sample and another taken from the nose, the weight of the bullet was within the normal tolerance of intact bullets.4

Trump negotiated his way to the Presidency. WITHOUT much help. And is still currently surviving active coups and demonizing and slander from the MSM and both parties. AND GROWING STRONGER.

I'm not sure whether you or enough people appreciate Trump's perseverance, resilience, and people-skills. This guy is a true historic heavy-hitter. And future legend.

Oswald qualified first as a "sharpshooter"in '56, then devolved and qualified as a "marksman" by '59. By 1963, how much more did his skills deteriorate?

Consider also that mail order piece of crap he purportedly used. Oswald? PATSY IMPOSSIBLE.

Although the distance from Oswald’s supposed location to JFK’s car was never more than about 90 yards (82 metres) during the shooting, several factors increased the difficulty of the act:

the presidential limousine was moving away from the gunman’s location;
the car was obscured for some of the time by an oak tree;
all the shots had to have been fired within a very short space of time;
and, most importantly, the only rifle that could have been used was awkward and unpredictable.

The sloppy forensics and handling of JFK's body, the fraudulent and rushed manipulation of JFK's skull, and this entire blatant charade (especially, including the Warren Commission conclusion) is just SO comically impossible, that anyone who even gives this case a cursory consideration MUST conclude that there was a conspiracy to cover up the truth.

Again -- WHY would or could any reasonable, impartial observer believe ANY "Official" investigation conducted by these people thereafter...EVER??

Yes, I'm repeating myself (as many are and will be), but how in the world can anyone believe the "Official" 911 Fairy Tale as well? IT is even more blatantly fake an "official" investigation/conclusion than JFK (which was/is a joke.)

These people are so brazen they even fired a missile into the Pentagram and expect people to accept their "truth" that just one and ONLY one video exists. And that at 1/100 of a millisecond. (Officials: "SEE?? You clearly just saw the passenger jet hit the Pentagram, right? WHAT>!? NO?!? What are ya, blind?!?? Or one of those CTers?? It was as clear as day!")

So in conclusion, we will NEVER get the actual truth on the Vegas slaughter and ID the REAL perps. Since the PTB are now very much aware of the collective increasing cynicism and ridicule out there of this case, as well as scrutiny of their past bogus investigations, they have decided something really big and dramatic must be done...

THEORY:

So desperate are the PTB to bury Vegas (or take heat off it), that they have instructed their Ministry of Propaganda overlords to bury the Vegas story behind the sudden diversionary revelation that The Hag and DNC were behind the "Dossier" AS WELL AS implicated on the Russian Uranium Deal.

Tossing The Hag and Bubba under the bus also helps placate a likely enraged President Trump, who now obviously has quite a bit of leverage.

If so, THIS means this time the Witch and Bubba are really in trouble. THOSE two red meat stories and sacrifice of Hitlery and Bubba may well take the heat off the Alphabet investigators and further scrutiny of PAST bogus "official Investigations."

Are the Walls of Justice finally catching up these two arrogant, murderous POS?
