FOIA Fail:The National Archives and CIA Stonewall Early Disclosure of JFK Case Files Ahead of Semicentenial - This Means WAR!!

Alright, down tools and listen up, Comrades... Management have refused to budge on our proposal, so as of right now, we're wildcatting and moving directly on to the flying pickets until our demands are met.


"During the public question period, journalist Jeff Morley (formerly with the Washington Post) asked that NDC reconsider its decision earlier this year not to speed up processing of 1,171 classified CIA records related to the JFK assassination by the 50th anniversary in 2013 (otherwise they remain secret until at least 2017 and perhaps indefinitely beyond).

The NDC/Archives response to Morley's request was a flat NO.

The CIA representative on the panel said, "My agency has nothing to say on that topic". "




Historical researchers will picket the National Archives on Constitution Avenue between Seventh and Ninth Streets, N.W. near the Visitor’s Entrance on Monday, October 8, 2012 between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 Noon and distribute an open letter to David S. Ferriero, the Archivist of the United States.
The purpose of the picket will be to protest the decision by the National Archives not to declassify documents related to the assassination of President John Kennedy, a decision made at the request of the Central Intelligence Agency.

The National Archives' decision is in violation of President Barack Obama' executive order of Tuesday, December 29, 2009 that "no information may remain classified indefinitely" as part of sweeping overhaul of the executive branch's system protecting classified national security information.

President Obama also established a new National Declassification Center at the National Archives to speed the process of declassifying historical documents by centralizing their review. The President set a four year deadline for processing a 400-million-page backlog of such records that originally included the JFK assassination records to be released on the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death, but later reneged on that commitment.

The October 8th picket is in protest that decision by the Archives and the continued withholding of JFK assassination records past the 50th anniversary of the assassination.

A Few Thoughts About Mark Lane

It is a fact that Mark Lane's radicalism stopped dead around 1966 - exactly around the time LBJ asked his people to start gathering dirt on Warren Commission critics (the term "conspiracy theorist" had not yet been coined and would not appear anywhere in print for another two years, when it appeared in a CIA internal memo on the same topic of discrediting them).

As far as we know, Mark Lane's life has never been seriously threatened (and he even managed to walk out of Jonestown alive), although we do know from his own reports that he was bugged and wiretapped pretty much everywhere he went. He never had problems getting a book published and the initial publication of Rush to Judgement was funded (in part) by Clint Murchison.

Mae Brussel noted sadly around 1975 that in 1964, she had been to see Mark Lane deliver a lecture about the assassination where he directed everyone's attention towards the shot from the grassy knoll. Ten Years later, she saw him give a tenth anniversary lecture; in it, he concluded by directing everyone's attention to the shot from the grassy knoll.

He chased Mae out of Jim Garrison's offices in 1867/8, denouncing her as being completely deranged and a liability to an investigation that at that point was largely focused on a defrocked ex-Catholic Priest turned mob-CIA pilot for hire, who claimed he had come up with a cure for lukemia from work he had been doing on several hundred white mice he kept in his apartment for experimentation, who used hypnosis and truth serum to get boys to go to bed with him, kept a private recreational stash of sodium pentathol next to the bed and had no eyebrows.

All if which was absolutely true.

Lane refused point blank to share a stage with Mae or debate her publically and denounced her continually as being "a nut" because she talked about mind control, the Office of Naval Intelligence and Nazis, specifically the HUGE and wildly disproportionate concentration of ex-pat Nazis living in and around Dallas and throughout Texas. Or the presence of George Lincoln Rockwell's home phone number in Lee Oswald's address book.

And he controlled the entire set-up and preliminary phases of what became the House Select Committee on Assassinations to ensure those voices were not heard and those concepts not raised - just the Grassy Knoll , the Mob, and MAYBE the CIA.

It's not unreasonable to conclude they got to him.

This bullet business leaves me confused...

From the official transcript, Warren Commission Executive Session, December 16th 1963:

John J. McCloy: "This bullet business leaves me confused."

Chief Justice Earl Warren: "It's totally inconclusive."

Those post-Jack Kennedy coups-d'etats in full.

Look at subsequent events this way:

President Lyndon Baines Johnson: Removed from office by the Vietnam War and spiralling domestic social unrest.

President Richard Milhous Nixon: Re-elected, then removed from office by Richard Helms and the CIA, actuated via Hunt, McCord, Sturgis, Bremer, Woodward, Ben Bradlee and Catherine Graham - the CIA's fingerprints are all over Watergate.

President Gerald Ford: Removed from office by pardoning Richard Nixon, Watergate hangover fatigue and (to some extent) Ronald Reagan's insurgent candidacy.

President Jimmy Carter: Removed from office by former DCI and Ambassador to Iran Richard Helms (who learned the Shah of Iran had terminal cancer and no heir in 1975), former DCI George HW Bush, the 400+ CIA agents fired by Carter and Stansfield Turner and the "Agents for Bush" campaign group chaired by William Colby, liasing with Iranian radicals loyal to Khomani, who arranged and co-ordinated the hostage crisis from Washington. And Ted Kennedy.

President Ronald Reagan: Took a back seat in policy matters behind closed doors following his attempted (terminal) removal from office by the son of a major Texas fundraiser, business associate and member of the social circle of VP George HW Bush. Bush took a lead role on the (highly unconstitutional) Vice-Presidential Inter-governmental Task Forces on every key policy area from covert actions, illegal off-the-books wars, trading with the enemy to domestic law enforcement and social policy.

President George HW Bush: Removed from office by spoiler candidate H.Ross Perrot who ran because of personal fury and disgust at Bush/Reagan Administration conduct relating to Iran Contra-related covert operations and executive actions; somehow managed to avoid being assassinated... Presumably the new reigime at the Agency approved of this development or he had blackmail dirt on them. Nevertheless, an FBI-originating harrassment/blackmail intimidation campaign against Perrot conducted by Iran Contra and Lockerbie Bureau button-man Buck Revell succeeds in temporary knocking Perrot out of the campaign for a number of months via a dirty tricks gambit involving falsified pornographic photos of Perrot's daughter.

President Bill Clinton: Numerous military executions of key Clinton associates and close friends in bizarre accidents and suicides, often clustered together prior to mid-term and presidential elections. Clinton lawyer Vince Foster dead in seemingly faked suicide whilst working on legal briefs for Hillary relating to Whitewater, turns up dead with an unidentified blonde female hair on the corpse. Generally attributed to Hillary, the reality is that after Foster left the White House around 1pm, he went over to the Pentagon and was served lunch by a Miss Linda Tripp, who was the last person to see him alive. Who is a blonde. Bush era appointees and holdovers in the judiciary and federal agencies (most notably the ATF and the FBI) and 5th choice Attorney General Janet Reno between them manage to make Clinton look genocidal and totallitarian as all hell at Waco, Oklahoma City, Columbine and the 1993 WTC Bombing when Federal gun control laws pass along with resubmitted Republican-authored anti-terror laws they were unable to get passed in the 80s. Continual and repeated attempts to get an impeachment investigation going falter due to incontravertable links back to Iran-Contra via Mena in his Gubernatorial term in Arkansas, which cannot be raised for obvious reasons. Eventually impeached for lying in a video deposition for a nussance civil lawsuit that was thrown out of court by the judge before ever coming to court.

President George W. Bush: Loser of both the popular vote and the electoral college in the 2000 election, but awarded the Presidency in a 5-4 Supreme Court Ruling adjudicated overwhelmingly by Bush, Reagan and Nixon nominees. No serious attempts at removal from office. Clearly, everyone able to do so was perfectly happy to see him remain where he was for the duration.

President Barack Obama: See above, entries for Jimmy Cater and Bill Clinton. It's an election year, Hillary's friends are being assassinated and they are having a go at the embassies again.

The Day the Whistleblowers Died

I'm going to begin compiling a master list of notable people who died in small plane crashes.

I was meaning to do so for a while, the numbers are quite frankly staggering.

Looking up the final fate of Senator John Tower of the Tower and Church Commissions, liberal Republican and longtime thorn in the side of the Bush/Reagan machine had me finally convinced...

It's not just Buddy Holly, Richie Vallens, Lynrd Skynrd and the Big Bopper.

The mere fact that John F Kennedy Jr. died in a ridiculous small plane crash 30 years after Ted Kennedy very NEARLY died in a small plane crash that ended up breaking his back and putting him in the hospital for a year should be enough to make a start on; them you have lone-dissenting Warren Commissioner and House Majority Leader Hale Boggs disappeared and was never found whilst making a campaign stop with Senator Al Beiliek Sr. right before the 1972 election, shortly after comparing Hoover's FBI to the Gestapo on the floor of the House; Ron Brown died in a plane crash on a plane meant for Hilary and Chelsea right before the 1996 election; Mel Carnahan died in a small plane crash in 2000 whilst running against John Ashcroft and won in spite of being dead; the longtime national chair and founder of the 9/11 victims families association died in a small plane crash; Dorothy Hunt died in a LARGE plane crash while carrying a suitcase filled with $50,000 in cash.

Almost makes you wonder if perhaps the most notable thing about the four hijacked flights on 9/11 was that none of them were carrying a national politician....

Re-election: The Conscience of the King

"President Bartlett is white, fictional, and lives in the realm of fantasy, there wasn't a single episode where he had to defend his birth certificate nor was he ever called a Muslim in the era of the WTC attack, never had a major financial meltdown combined with a worldwide economic problem, 2 wars, or face a congress who sole operations mantra was to say NO to everything no matter how sensible, practical or good for the government....

Class dismissed."

God Save the Queen

Definitely NOT a reptilian, that one...

Diplomatic Vulnerability

This is your September Surprise, right here.

There's an incumbent Democratic President, a natural enemy to the National Security establishment and the Military Industrial Complex running for re-election and, unsurprisingly, there's a brewing foreign policy that involves a direct assault on the principles of international diplomacy and Hilary Clinton's liberal-as-all hell friends dying in unlikely and ludicrous fashion.

The circumstances surrounding the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi are unclear and prima face absurd.

Since the official story is so confused, it becomes the job of the Spooks of Spin moderating the Wikipedia entry in the event to sanitise and make sense of the event.

This is what we have so far:

"A rocket propelled grenade attack reportedly created a fire in the main consulate building with three Americans inside — Stevens, Sean Smith, and a security officer.

According to U.S. officials, the security officer escaped and the staff found Smith dead.

However, the staff were unable to locate Ambassador Stevens before being driven from the building under small arms fire.

Stevens apparently became separated from his staff while trying to escape to the roof and was ultimately overcome by smoke inhalation.

Local civilians found Stevens and brought him to the Benghazi Medical Centre in a state of cardiac arrest.

Medical personnel tried to resuscitate him, but he was pronounced dead at about 2:00am local time.

The surviving Americans were taken to a safe house.

A rescue squad consisting of eight U.S. military or former military was sent from Tripoli, the capital.

They were ambushed and the safe house came under attack. Two more Americans died, including one sent from Tripoli; several were wounded.

Later reports identified the victims as Tyrone S. Woods and Glen A. Doherty, both ex-Navy SEALs working as security and intelligence contractors. U.S. officials began an investigation."

So far, so much bullshit.

Granted, this was not the American embassy in Tripoli, this was the consulate building in Benghazi, but there were four people in the building - where we're the embassy marines?

The Ambassador was caught in a clinch with the IT guy for protection.

Libya is NOT a friendly country even now, nor is it a stable one... Where was his protection?

We surely have to believe that he wasn't a complete idiot so much as to go wandering around the regions essentially with a target pinned to his chest saying "Look at me, I'm an unarmed American official and it's September the 11th, come and get me!!"

Then we have the question of the smoke inhalation.

I'm no gun-nut and I don't know much about ordinance, but I do know that Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs) do not produce firey explosions or tend to set things on fire.

We this a gas attack, that might be more likely. But where would rioters or dissidents get their hands on gas weapons? And how is an RPG fired at a building from the street below producing that effect, precisely?

There is no big mystery here, it's not the Illuminati, it's not the NWO or aliens or the Rosecrusicans or the Masons or anything like that....

There's a Democrat in the White House running for re-election, so right-wing factions within the CIA and the Pentagon are doing things.

Killing people. Specifically, US diplomats overseas and friends of the Clinton Family. In this case Chris Stevens fulfils both of those criteria and got subjected to a targeted assassination on a psychologically inflammatory date.

It's an established pattern. This has happened several dozen times over the last three and a half decades and it's happening now. Hilary and Obama recognise it, know who's behind it and what the intention to it is and are refusing to take the bait. Why is that so difficult to understand?

One of my earliest role models: An Angry, Black Cartoon Duck.

Good lord, I always empathised with Daffy.... I became very upset years later when someone pointed out a scene set in mid-1940s Hollywood in Who Framed Roger Rabbit where Donald Duck apparently racially abuses Daffy in the middle of their act. Even more so when I watched back the scene in question and had to agree that it was apparently true. No wonder he's always so angry... He's the Malcolm X of Loony Toons.

Man had a voice like an Earth tremor...

If there's a choir or even a street corner barbershop doo-wop quartet up in Heaven, MCD already busted Barry White back down to the Soprano of the group...

He and George Takai each could bring down the first morning dew such as to make half a mountainside moist just by purring the girl's first name....
