The Ultimate John Kennedy Assassination Theory

May 28, 2018

For decades the debate over who killed President John F. Kennedy has involved one group who claims Lee Harvey Oswald did it and another blaming the CIA. They continue to ignore the possibility both claims are correct. The CIA is a spy organization. Some of its agents masquerade as supporters of the enemy so they can get inside enemy organizations.

Oswald could easily have been such a covert agent. If so he would have been a logical choice to kill Kennedy. The CIA might have hoped Oswald’s apparent support for Cuban President Fidel Castro would cause public opinion to demand retaliation against Castro. Oswald might have planned “to give into” expected intensive interrogation and say the Cuban government had told him to shoot Kennedy.

I don’t have any information that Oswald was or wasn’t associated with the CIA. Of course the CIA would never admit if he was with the CIA. His previous flirtations with Russia and Cuba might have been efforts to gain information for the CIA. The communists lack of interest in him could have indicated they were suspicious of his motives.

I have always been troubled by fact that someone with Oswald’s background was allowed to be where he was on that fateful day. The previous school year I had done a research paper on the Secret Service. My research indicated that the Secret Service would normally have prevented someone like Oswald from being in a building along the motorcade route.

One fact that wasn’t known to the public at the time was that one of the last actions taken by the CIA’s predecessor, the OSS, was the killing of General George Patton.

I have no interest in pursuing this theory further I’ll leave that decision up to those who are more familiar with the incident than I am.

Is the United States a Democracy or a Police State?

May 27, 2018

In a democracy elected officials control the police.. In a police state, the police can tell elected officials what to do. In a democracy elected officials can fire police leaders. In a police state police leaders cannot be fired by the officials the people have elected to supposedly run the government.

‘In a police state Gestapo like police may terrorize political figures by invading their homes in the middle of the night like Robert Mueller did to .Paul J. Manafort. In a police state KGB like police may plant spies in political organizations like the Department of Justice did to Donald Trump.

Those who talk about the rule of law sometimes forget the most important of our laws are devoted to preventing misuse of the police powers to harass and intimidate political figures. One of the most important of these protections is the requirement that those making accusations be identified so the accused can challenge the charges. The accused may know that the accuser is likely to lie. Basing an investigation of a political candidate on an anonymous source violates the spirit if not the letter of this constitutional protection.

The most important of our laws is the United States Constitution. Article 2 of the United States Constitution states: ” The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.”

The Constitution does not allow sharing of power with the Attorney General, the FBI Director or any other law enforcement official. Article 2 prohibits any law enforcement official from interrogating a president or trying to indict one. Such an action would be equivalent to an attempt to overthrow the government. Allowing the sharing of power would take away the people’s power to control law enforcement,
