Happy something or other ....
Given the choice, I'd rather boycott Macys and the Bay than Jesus Christ.
fifty long years, the huge 26 volume Warren Commission Report is still
unbelievable to 85% of the American people. And we are no closer to
understanding the What, Why, and Who of the events. Except to suggest it
was a coup d'etat of democracy. But it is not going away.
Tidbits of information about the perps, if indeed they are the perps,
continue to emerge. Even the side issue here about Officer Tippit
remains of high interest.

49 years and counting .... November 24
It seems that even after this long long time it would be apropos to repost a couple of things about that infamous day in history. There are still a few reads you can research yourself. But even if you do, they still lead to nothing but even more questions about what actually happened that day in Dallas .....

Today in History - November 24
Lee Harvey Oswald.
While the world was still reeling at the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, we saw the alleged perpetrator of the crime, caught and killed only two days later, and on national TV!
And these many years on we can only marvel at the speed with which his apprehension for the crimes happened. And the positive assertion that Oswald was undoubtedly the lone killer of Officer Tippit and Kennedy.
All these instant conclusions would be astounding even in todays era of nanosecond web communication. Yet over these years so many nagging doubts still evoke questions.
Oswald was supposed to have shot Kennedy from a 6th floor coign of vantage in the Texas Schoolbook Depository, with a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle. But first it was identified as a 7.65 Italian Mauser, by sherrifs and FBI Special Agents. Affidavits were signed. Then it became a 6.5 Carcano rifle. Why? Because the FBI discovered that Oswald HAD purchased a Carcano, but NOT a Mauser. And even other rifles are now mentioned. And it took a world class marksman from the Army to nearly duplicate the 3 shots in 4.5 second feat! Other trained US Marine snipers said it could not be done.
And an almost perfect bullet 'appeared' on the stretcher bearing the President's body. A bullet that went through TWO bodies. That looks as if the Lone Ranger put it there!
Oswald was even identified by someone who SAW him up there from across the street! Is that believeable today?
Oswald was supposedly seen being questioned by Tippit shortly after leaving his job and taking to the streets. Witnesses said they saw him shoot Tippit. They even saw him REloading his handgun while fleeing! Does that sound like a frightened killer? Yet other witnesses said another car pulled up, a man got out and shot Tippit and then roared away! Someone else saw two men who were NOT Oswald. Witnesses even identified a different assailant as heavy set, wearing a long overcoat. Many witnesses claimed intimidations and threats about their testimonys. Several eye-witnesses died soon after.
The Warren Commission ignored most of it.
And what was Officer Tippit up to on the hour before he died? Why was he far out of his patrol area? Why did he suddenly rush to 10th Street and stop to make a phone call in a cafe but only listened and said nothing? Why did he seem panicked when he made the call? He left his car radio at a crucial time. Then he was seen cruising very slowly. Why was Tippit known in the area he died in? Some witnesses thought he lived nearby. But it was miles from his patrol area and his home?
How did anyone know Oswald's path of exit? Was it coincidence? Happenstance? Or enemy action? Officer Tippit was directed exactly where to go, minutes after the murder. Then radioed back when he was in position. Why was Tippit directed to 10th St? Was he? The Dallas police lieutenant who may have directed Tippit that day, Harry Dean Thomas, married his widow three years later.
The shells from the shooting were gathered by policeman, J.M. Poe, and he marked them with his initials, however the shell casings eventually entered into evidence had no such markings.
Oswald went to his rooming house first. Who were the two policemen who stopped in front, gave two horn honks and went away? Then he went to a movie theatre. Why did he go there instead of staying on a bus and getting far away? Was he under a prearranged instruction to go to that theatre? Part of a plan to have him where someone wanted him? Did someone give him a revolver there? Perhaps the very revolver just used to kill Tippit? Perhaps by the very person who DID kill Tippit? The revolver in his possession was fully loaded with no empty chambers. And he had no additional ammunition with him. So if Oswald shot Tippit four times, and REloaded, then he must have had only had four extra bullets with him? Seems too odd, doesn't it?
Oswald was constant in his claim that he was a patsy. He was innocent. He never shot anybody. And more than one scholar who has gone through the whole case has said the Mexico and Soviet Union implications could have easily pointed to Oswald being a CIA spy.
Alas, all these years later we are still suspicious, yet nowhere near advanced in our factuals about how it happened. The circumstances seem just too complex. The evidence now too scattered. Diffused. Lost. Misinformation and disinformation. Indeed, but we have more questions than ever.
His actions seem to be a response to suddenly realizing he had been set up. Confusion, desperation, the compounding of events leading him to take a predetermined escape route as his only hope. A route designed by who?
Lee Harvey Oswald was never actually charged with killing the Presdient.
and from September 27, 2011
This day in history - - - September 27
(1963 – 64) The Warren Commission. A group appointed by Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson to investigate the circumstances surrounding President John F. Kennedy's slaying and the shooting of his (alleged) assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. It was chaired by Earl Warren and included two U.S. senators, two U.S. congressmen, and two former public officials.
After months of investigation, it reported that Kennedy was killed by Oswald's rifle shots from the Texas School Book Depository and that Oswald's murder by Jack Ruby two days later was not part of a conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy.
Its findings were later questioned in a number of books and articles and in a special congressional committee report in 1979, though no conclusive contradictory evidence was found.
Who can you trust?
In a new revelation by Jackie Kennedy she recently revealed her suspicions of LBJ. And we all know she married Ari Onassis simply because he was the one man in the world who could actually protect her from an 'unexpected' and mysterious death.
.... back to today ....
And an even more recent revelation suggests that Jackie Kennedy/Onassis recorded several tapes before she died. And they are somewhere. Waiting to be revealed. It is further proposed by some researchers, that Oswald was a paid asset of the FBI.
Arlen Specter, (later a Senator) was assistant counsel to the Warren Commission (recommended by Gerald Ford) and came up with the single bullet theory, which was readily adopted because having Connally and Kennedy shot by two separate bullets in such a short time frame would indicate TWO assassins and a conspiracy! Convenient, huh? Why did Specter miss so many obvious followup questions to the witnesses?
More questions. In recent years, there have been suggestions that some secret sponsored shadow cell has plans for a coup d'etat of the American Government, even that 9/11 may have been the precursor.
And there are also those who also believe the coup was already accomplished on November 22, 1963!
But just investigating the one aspect of Officer Tippit is an interesting exercise and takes you well away from the 49 years of spin and cover up about JFK. Go ahead, try it. At the very least you'll have a fascinating read, way better than TV fiction. And you'll involve yourself in history.
start here - - -
Dallas Police Officer J.D. Tippet
(link 1 and 4 were removed by someone, but I put them back)
Follow the fascinating timeline and perhaps you will come up with more questions too: like why did the Davis sisters believe he lived in the nearby apartment house? Who DID live there to cause Tippit to be there often? Why was he speeding around frantically in the minutes after JFK was shot? Was he supposed to intercept Oswald? Why was he on West 10th Street when he was thought to be miles away at the Dealey Plaza by the overpass? How many contradictions may already be within the transcripts of accounts, interviews and events? Is there one somewhere, just waiting for a new eye to find it? Is there one sentence somewhere that says, 'This cannot be, therefore that must be?'
They can't hide ALL the trails leading to truth. We finally learned the identity of deepthroat, anything can still happen.
And one thing about a coup d'etat, they don't all reveal themselves in a momentary flash through smoke and fire and violence ... they can emerge in stealth over many years.
(Thanks to William M. Drenas [Tippit Timeline], for communicating with me and others for never exhausting their efforts in the search for truth)
Will there ever be discovered a grain of proof? Who knows, but some are still looking.
I am not alone. Here's a recent event -
This woman decided that the lice and maybe mange disease she found in her dog hair was better left on a public park bench than in her house. Do these kinds of people ever wash their dog after it poops? Before they allow the animal on a bench that a young mother would like to relax on with her baby? Or an older couple to pause in their daily walk? What kind of mentality is this?
When questioned, people like this only say, "Oh no, my dog is clean, watch him kiss me!" Without a blink that he might have just licked another dog's bum before he laps her face!
Then there are
the ones who walk right in front of you, while talking on their phones,
(or pretending to) and not looking at Rover poop right there in your space. Others
just look up at the sky while it defiles the grass. Look at it this
way, if it was up to the dog, he would go off into the bush and do it,
he's got some class and a little pride, but not you. you've got the poor
little bugger on a leash and he is forced to shit in front of everyone. These folks never pull the dog away from your area, allowing it to sniff and circle right as if they had no control.
Went to visit friends for a summer get together, about 10 people in their living room. A woman in the middle of us all encouraging the dog to run everywhere, bouncing off the furniture. I said to the host woman, "Your dog is very active." She answered quietly, "It's not my dog." OMG, the person was invited to a friend's home and brought her freaking DOG? And then exercised it and let it tear up her carpet? How cute is that!
Some get what they deserve though - leave him in the car while you dash for a latte. Sure.
And one lady, took virtually ALL the doggie bags from the park dispenser into her purse. Maybe the dog was in there too but I didn't see it. Wonder if her husband's lunch smells bad? Is that a peanut butter sandwich or not?
Another guy got a chihuahua. He took it everywhere. Even golfing. Three of the foursome wanted him to let it run so they could aim at it. Were willing to sacrifice a whole box of new balls!
And how often do you see that macho Dodge Ram pick-up driver with Pookie on his lap, a total distraction as the animal squirms around, putting the lives of all pedestrians in danger because this guy can't steer or brake hard or the little piece of furry shit will slide of his lap and get under that brake pedal.
Here's more - A guy in a nice suit took his dog out before work. A rare bit of empty grass downtown. One day he met a young girl as he was walking the critter. For a few times after, they passed and talked, a budding romance. Until one time he was on his way back home when he met her, they chatted, he had a bag of poop in his hand. Never saw them together after that.
I knew this lady in a high rise apartment building, she was way too busy watching Oprah to take him out to do his business. It was a two bedroom with a bath and a shower. Well, the shower was a great convenience, the dog just hopped into the stall, and all Miss Bliss had to do was pass by during commercials and turn on the shower for a while. What a flush! But it was okay, she didn't have to feed him Kibbles and Bits and could do soft food!
Speaking of high rise condos, they all have that slow elevator. You're going to work in a perfectly good suit, or wife has a lovely dress on. When here she comes, the lady from the sixth holding Muffin squirming and lurching in every direction. She's so excited she pisses on your shoe! The dog, not the lady. And leaps on you to get a pat on the head when you'd rather it be a hammer to the head! Tears your pants, or wifey's linen skirt, and worse for your woman, the dreaded crotch sniff! With a wet nose! And now she is going out with a dark spot. Right ... there!
I think Oprah may do this soon - "And tonight, everyone in our audience goes home with a BRAND
NEW DOG!" (sorts of cheers)
How's that? A free dog. Really? Yeah, no shit. Er .... well .... um, maybe some, but it is only lil droplets. And we know that Oprah person can't wait to take her dog to restaurants so she can overwhelm your hygienic protests by telling you how she got it.
So in the Forties we had gum chewers. Everywhere on the streets, those circles of spit-out gum hardened on the sidewalk. Then it became smokers, butts everywhere. Now it is dog poop. But they only pick it up by the clean end, and leave the residue in the grass so your children can never run barefoot again. Too bad.
There are three reasons that, even if you're desperate for friends, you should reject some potentials: 1- He or she smokes. Them kind are not bright enough to know any better, forgive them but don't befriend them. 2- The person is wearing a Tilly hat. No explanation needed on this one. and 3 - He or she has a dog. Why wonder if she will turn up for dinner and feed it on her lap at your table? And you know it is going to bite you sooner or later.
I have nothing against Lassie, or Rin Tin Tin, or Astra, they are great in the movies, but with a proper dog wrangler. Just don't try Mr. Piddles out on me.
My dog used to get the cooked turkey neck at Christmas with some gravy and veggies in the bowl. He wagged his tail, walked around it several times, and smiled his thanks at us for the treat before eating it slowly and with much appreciation.
Then we sent him out to the back yard.
Don't think he will be cute or small forever.
