No Black Helicopters Spotted Yet!


Maybe they’ll get me, maybe they won’t. But whatever...it won’t be tonight.

"90% of the American people believe there was a conspiracy to assassinate John F. Kennedy. The other 10% work for the government or the media.”
Richard Belzer


Ever since I stated this blog in 2008 in order to share my thoughts on the assassination John F. Kennedy I was hoping it would not flounder and I would not become a voice crying in the wilderness. Readership has steadily grown over the intervening years and I have you kind folks out there to thank for that. My goal is to make it interesting for people and not just rehash the same facts over and over. I am a pattern hunter and there is lots of that to explore with so many intertwining connections. There is also a lot of strangeness that seems permeate everything associated with JFK’s death. Some of it is borderline supernatural but of course isn’t–but it’s all over the place and makes for an interesting investigation.

Of interest is the type of viewers that are showing up. Once I got tracking software installed on my page I could trace where everybody was coming from and some of the data is not just IP’s but web sites and search terms. It seems everybody is using Google and if not for them, then I guess I would have very few readers at all. So my thanks to them as well.

I don’t view myself as anybody important in the JFK research community. I’m just a regular guy cranking out essays and book reviews on the subject. Having said that, the tracking software after a while began compiling visits from government web sites. Then I noticed military web sites and government contractors as well. Numerous other corporations fill in the empty slots. In effect, this little blog has attracted the attention of the full phalanx of the Military-Industrial Complex and the various elements of the National Security State.

And I can do all of this from home!

About The Visitors
When I first started compiling my list of visitors I found only a few .gov sites. I thought at first maybe it was bored government employees or people doing their lunch breaks in their cubicles surfing the web on the side. I did it when I worked i worked in a cubical! But then I noticed a trend and over the past three years more and more government web sites appearing. Then came the military sites along with the web sites of government contractors. Of course there are plenty of educational sites and miscellaneous companies in the mix as well.

The list below may look unbelievable but it is all true. That many agencies of both the government and corporate America did stop by for a read. As I said above, it may just be employees killing time. On the other hand, a sign that people who question the government, its claims and policies, or catch it in a lie, get watched. Or in some of these cases, monitored. The DHS and DOJ visited my blog five times each, in 2010. They have visited several times this year as well but I haven’t counted up the tally as obviously, this year is not over yet. (Will update 1/2012.)

Having the CIA drop by was a surprise as they were so open about it. I remember it well, in last week of June as that was the week my mother passed away. I figured if they ever showed up it would be under an anonymous IP address, not so up front. I get a lot of hits from IP addresses located in Reston and Herndon, both towns in northern Virginia and loaded with CIA offices so I thought I might be getting a look-see. By being so open maybe they wanted me to know?

And speaking of anonymous IP address’s I have one that shows up on average three times a week, every week. The IP is 38.165.15.201 and it is located in Washington, DC. It or they are the most frequent visitor for my blog. Apparently some kind bot that is programed to monitor for new postings. Even if I do one post a month this IP bot will be checking–every week.

One agency that does use bots is the National Security Agency. They appeared one day under the ULR, www.ncsc.mil. The site is inaccessible. I did some checking and found out they had visited other web sites in this same manner. One was John Young’s Cryptome.org (linked here), a great site for listing recently declassified government documents. An article posted there detailed research which uncovered that ncsc.mil was in fact, an NSA bot. (For the geeks, www.ncsc.mil is actually an alias for romulus.ncsc.mil.)

Like I said jokingly above no black helicopter flyovers yet. And if you boys show up, try not to fly too low, okay? I don’t want you freaking out the cats. No I’m not concerned about any of this nor have I been a victim of any harassment. Well, there is that fact that every year since I started the blog, I’ve had my checked luggage searched by TSA when I fly. I know they do it as they leave a 3x5 card in my bag informing me of the search. No reason is stated. The Fourth Amendment apparently offers little protection here in the dying days of the National Security State’s security mania.

A Tale Of Two Presidents


“But many other more telling facts indicate that Obama is but a figurehead of an unelected government in the US. This unelected power of corporate elites – commercial, financial, military – governs with the same core policies regardless of who is sitting in the White House. Whether these policies are on social, economic or foreign matters, the elected president must obey the direction ordained by the unelected elite. That kind of untrammeled power structure conforms more closely in practice to dictatorship, not democracy.”
Finian Cunningham

“A supposedly transformative president normalizes the criminal perversions of his predecessor and appears to have the fight in him only to beat the legacy of FDR into an unrecognizable pulp.”
Jeff Wells


When one starts studying the political and corporate forces that John F. Kennedy skirmished with behind the scenes in the alley ways of government, one can get a sense of how great this silent and hidden struggle was. Kennedy’s battles are only now coming to light and add more credibility that there were many that would not mind seeing him dead. Just follow the trail and see who all benefited. Everybody has a motive here except the man credited with the crime.

From the military industrial establishment lusting for war in Southeast Asia, to the contractors positioning themselves for a piece of the action, to the independent paramilitary operations being conducted by the CIA, to the host of other power brokers tucked away in their fiefdoms, John F. Kennedy stands now as the lone man standing in opposition to them. In many ways he is the last authentic President the United States. He attempted to govern as if the buck really did stop with him. These corporate and political powers are the ones with the greatest motive to stop him and have a far greater motive to assassinate the President than the man credited with the crime.

JFK may have understood that not only would these hidden power brokers rule the People from a distance but might also control any future President.

Strange Days Have Found Us
Which brings to the modern era with Barack H. Obama, the most mysterious man ever elected President of the United States. In the past, the public has not been privy to various personal details regarding the lives of their leaders. Franklin Roosevelt was never seen in a wheelchair and the press conspired with him in this regard. John Kennedy’s dalliances with numerous women, were unknown till years later as was his Addison's disease; a serious illness that nearly took his life as a young man. His successor, Lyndon Johnson we know was one of the most amoral and uncouth human beings that ever lived. Other Presidents had issues only lately coming to light.

With Barack Obama, even is less is known and to the point of being a total mystery, his autobiography, Dreams of My Father, not withstanding. He’s a man who seemingly walked out of a fog. Other than having a wife and two daughters his experience with women is unknown. (Where are the girlfriends? All of these politicos are haunted by them.) The controversy over his birth records aside, there are virtually no existent records available on him. All educational records from Kindergarten through law school are sealed or not available; thesis papers do not exist; no Harvard Law Review articles, a requirement to be the editor which Obama briefly was, have ever been released except for a questionable six-page unsigned summary; medical records, never released; Chicago law practice records, never released; appointment calendar for service in the Illinois State Senate, never released (Corsi, Appendix, 316-328). Even more telling is the legal expense in the millions to make sure all of these records are never made known.

Consider this–there is more witness testimony of shots coming from the grassy knoll than there are witnesses or documentation that Barack Obama attended or graduated from Columbia University. There are no released grade transcripts, photos, and only a few people have come forward to say they knew him during the Columbia period (a Sohale Siddiqi has come forward but was not attending classes with him. See USA Today link HERE).

(And it does not end with Obama but extends to his mother and her parents. No records exist of Ann Dunham’s two marriages, her passport records–since destroyed–or her hospital records at the time of Barack's birth. Speaking of Obama’s birth records, there are none of his mother, her parents and grandparents. Other things abound–researchers found numerous instances of Ann Dunham using aliases. Also, her father’s military service records are not available.)

Even Barak Obama’s list of professions is dubious. His tenure as a law “professor” is a myth–he was a mere instructor and never held a tenured position either as a professor or as an associate professor. His colleagues thought little of him, this man whose charisma would in the future, blossom on the world stage. The law license he once held is gone too. There are two stories on this. One, that he voluntarily given up since he no longer needs it while conducting the duties of President. And two, the story that he had lied on his Illinois Bar exam on a question of whether he had ever used an alias. He had–Barry Soetoro–his Indonesian name from his adoptive father which he used, along with his Indonesian passport to travel to Pakistan in the early 1980’s. (Please read my UPDATE on this below.)

Lastly, there is the issue of his Social Security number. The initial story was that researchers have discovered that Obama’s SSN belongs to that of a woman born in in 1890 in Connecticut. SSN are single use numbers, retired at the death of the person issued the number. However, a search of the Social Security Death Index shows this to be apparently false. See HERE for a complete explanation of Obama’s SSN being legitimate. Despite that, other Social Security numbers have been discovered for variants of Obama’s name. Probably more so for an uncommon name like this and so many owners of SSN’s for that name.

It’s not perplexing that mainstream media doesn’t cover any of this. They are more or else useless as a public watch dog. It’s more the Courts. Third party investigators have routinely had their challenges tossed out with rulings of “no standing”. Even the latest law suit over the Connecticut Social Security number was recently denied. It’s a legal hot potato alright, and only independent critics have an interest in the issue it seems. The important factor though, is that all legal challenges have been dismissed.

Tight Leash
David Talbot in Brothers, describes John Kennedy’s behind the scenes battles with the CIA, the Pentagon and its Generals. Where Kennedy was his own man standing up to strongmen such as the cigar chomping General Curtis Lemay, the duplicitous CIA Director Allen Dulles, or even the head of the Federal Reserve, William McChesney Martin, Jr., when he issued the silver certificate notes which ate into the central bank’s profits, Obama doesn’t seem to have the spine for such heroics. He seems content in his ever expanding role of a puppet to them, as he parades around as a Roman Emperor to the rest of the world. One can almost see the strings attached to him. He knows that if he steps too far out of line what will become of him. He made a lot of promises as they all do to get elected, but with Obama, I don’t think he lied by not fulfilling many of them. His interaction with the machinery of government is tightly managed and all of the centers of power Kennedy wrestled with are still there, more numerous and as powerful as ever.

I harken back to comedian Bill Hicks’ routine on how a new President is handled. He’s taken into a darkened room, a screen comes down and he’s shown a film of the Kennedy assassination but from an angle no one has seen before. It’s the angle from the grassy knoll. When it’s finished, the lights come on, the screen goes up and the men there, the real power brokers, say to him, “Any questions?” And the President elect says, “What’s my agenda going to be?” A wisecrack, but I wonder if it really happens that way. I’m sure the speculation of it lingers like an unwelcome guest in every new President’s mind. As we know from other sources, people close in have their doubts. Why else would Bill Clinton have his friend and Attorney General Webster Hubble look into the assassination? He wanted to know more. He may have feared for his own life from the Men behind the curtain. Naturally, Hubble got nowhere.

Manchurian Candidate?
Most likely not. That would be too easy, too expected. However, Barack Obama’s path to power is guided by the rich and powerful. There may be intelligence connections running all thorough this, there usually is, but the blend is such it’s hard to tell who is who. All presidential hopefuls are in need of powerful benefactors, and even John Kennedy with all his money, charm and charisma needed his father’s mob connections to affect the outcome of the 1960 election. With Barack Obama, his climb to the top was an amazing thing to watch. Here is a man who spent his life as a nobody with no distinguishing achievements except for being elected to public office twice and not spending much time not doing much in either roles as State Senator and then as a member of the Federal Senate. He expressed no leadership skills in either position. Nor authored any legislation.

When a President has 5 or more hours to play golf that is President with not much to do. And you would think that job would have enough tasks going on to keep one busy 24 hours a day. Apparently, the heavy hitters are doing the real work. President Obama is called in to do the scripted public appearances when a situation is called for. After all, it’s all theater–it’s when he ad libs he is at his worse. Check out the old film clips online to see how good Kennedy was at handling impromptu press conferences and off the cuff quips. He always portrayed a commanding presence and seems at liberty in purpose and action to his modern counterpart who drifts ambivalently from one affair to the next, as if his steps are ordered and the outcome matters not.

Somebody once said that Barack Obama’s greatest fear is being found out he is a phony. Maybe so. Perhaps he is more afraid of the Puppeteers.

UPDATE:
Since posting this piece I’ve added some new links below and made a few corrections. Also, I’m a bit leery of using Snopes.com as a source. I have the feeling they are agenda driven. I have uncovered some strangeness with their version of the truth regarding Obama's law license.

For example, in their debunking the “myth” that Obama lost his license as a result of a disciplinary action through the Illinois State Supreme Court, on Snopes there is a page (HERE) supposedly showing a record from the IARDC showing that Obama voluntarily retired his law license. Interestingly enough, this page is mostly a graphics file. There is an iardc.org not link for this supposed page (HERE) so I went there. What loads are empty form fields. Curiously, there is a date of admission for an unnamed lawyer for 12/30/1899. And, the same thing appears for Michele Obama as well. Odd. So, the page on Obama (and his wife) as seen in the graphics file does not load the same information.

But there is a search so I typed in Obama’s full name. He is not listed as a licensed attorney for the state Illinois. As stated in the search results page: “Your search terms do not match the record of any lawyer licensed in Illinois.

So it’s all very strange and this didn’t increase my trust in Snopes. I think something fishy is going on here. Snopes is posting a link on a graphic for a page that does not exist. And, they do it twice. Nevertheless, no real evidence that Barack Obama lost his law license due to fibbing about his using an alias. But no evidence against it either.

The Adjustment Bureau Just Might Be True


"The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use them."
Philip K. Dick

“...we didn’t assume any answer, but investigated all possibilities and let the facts reveal the truth.”
Gerald R. Ford
Last Forward
The Warren Commission Report


Recently I saw the movie, The Adjustment Bureau based on the Philip K. Dick story. Simply, it’s a tale about a mysterious group of Gentlemen in suits and hats that go about tinkering with the thoughts and lives of individuals to change the course of history--both on a macro and micro level. The story takes off when the hero (Matt Damon) stumbles upon the Adjustment Bureau secretly at work and through them finds out that a woman he has recently met is not in the Plan and the Bureau is at work breaking up the relationship, supposedly, for the betterment of them both. Thus begins the classic narrative struggle, the lone man pitted against a powerful group. A story that commonly plays out in real life.

There is much to digest in this film and many mysteries abound. Such as, how does the Adjustment Bureau know enough about future events that their manipulations are going to get the end result? What is the true nature of a Free Will? In fact, Free Will is the main thread of the story.

There is a sense with the assassinations of the 1960’s that an Adjustment Bureau was at work in the deaths of those leaders. As if these men, The Kennedy's, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X–were going to bring about a future that a certain group of “others” did not desire. But then, how could they possibly know how the future would play out? Just because they feel it? One must assume they are not seers. Obviously the powerful never want to lose their position on the board so they make their moves. Apostle Paul defined faith as, “the evidence of things unseen...” Unseen maybe, but just as real or just as real as a threat. The perception of reality is a reoccurring theme in Philip K. Dick’s literary work.

Seemingly, if an Adjustment Bureau exists it has been successful in its attempts to manipulate the future. When JFK was killed they got their war in Viet Nam along with the profiteering. Lyndon Johnson, his successor overturns almost all of Kennedy’s policies except for the moon mission and ushers in the war on poverty and the hopeless Viet Nam bog-down.

And how different would America be if John Kennedy, and the other slain leaders had lived out their natural life spans? One can only speculate but how things could have been different if Kennedy had a second term to continue his attempt to rein in the various Fiefdoms that had grown up at the feet of the National Security State (and to a national extent, his brother’s prosecution of organized crime figures). His loss was our loss. Because now, the government of the Republic has grown into a massive criminal enterprise capable of high treason, unbridled greed, and departments that work as agents of oppression. The People have lost control of it. All one has to do is read the recent story of the government raid of the highly respected Gibson Guitar company, with armed Federal thugs shutting down all three of Gibson’s manufacturing facilities, detaining shop employees and demanding they answer questions without council present and with the added threat of imprisonment if they didn’t answer. A blatantly illegal and tyrannical act. The government goons rush in with loaded guns drawn as if they are raiding a back-alley meth lab. It boggles the mind that something like this could happen in America. But it is happening. The farmers producing raw milk have suffered identical raids too, guns drawn on these hapless men. In twelve states people are being arrested under wire tapping laws for videoing police.

I doubt seriously if JKF would approve of something like this, nor his brother Robert. Or for that matter, the Founders. But this is what we’ve come down to with Kennedy’s failure to rein in these Strongmen. As soon as John Kennedy was elected president he ran head-on into one of the main Strongmen–the Central Intelligence Agency. The Bay of Pigs fiasco was the result of a CIA run military operation that Kennedy decided not to go along with. At the same time, the CIA was controlling all military operations in Indochina. Even down to this very day, they are still running operations. The boys at Langley can fire missiles remotely from drones anywhere in the Middle East and kill whomever they want and do so with little oversight.

This brings to the fore, how does one prosecute the State for crimes? If elements of the government killed John F. Kennedy just as the Roman Senators killed Caesar, then how are any of them brought to justice? How about never? My point being, once the State could commit a crime of this magnitude and get away with it there are no boundaries left and the end result spins away to madness, tyranny and even bolder acts. To me, the Gibson raid is sign we’ve reached a new plateau in the march towards despotism and general loss of liberty. By doing this one act, the State has declared all of us to be its servants and the service to the People is of no consequence.

Philip K. Dick’s issue of the, “manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words” is accurate for the age we live in as it has been through human history. It’s a common technique of all politicians. Notice the follow up quote by Gerald R. Ford from his final revised Forward to the Warren Report. Former Warren Commission member Ford was apparently a pro at manipulating reality with words.

In my article, “Jerry Ford Beats A Dead Horse” I show the many contradictions in his final comments on the subject. He was so ensconced in the manipulation of words that he falters embarrassingly, to the point of appearing to be a tottering old fool. Ford was responsible for moving Kennedy’s back wound up five inches to his neck to add credence to the single bullet theory and has the effrontery to present this to the public as a fact. Ford would defend his actions years later by saying, "My changes were only an attempt to be more precise." Yes, precise if you are writing a novel but this is supposed to be a report of a criminal investigation into the homicide of a President. For Gerald Ford, a “fact” in the Kennedy assassination is whatever the main players say it is, real or imagined. Who knows, maybe he said it enough to believe it himself while dismissing the rest of us as “armchair investigators” for sticking to the real facts not filtered through politics. Ford acts as if the Adjustment Bureau agents from the movie waved their magic wand over his head and manipulated his thoughts but in ways that make little sense to anyone except to those also compromised.

And the Discovery Channel is into this as well. Their recent show on the Secret Service stated that the outfit is still “...haunted by Lee Harvey Oswald, the lone sniper that killed President Kennedy.” No, no... Lee Harvey Oswald is the alleged lone sniper that allegedly killed President Kennedy. This has been going on for years. Oswald’s guilt was never determined in a court of law. His case was never presented to a jury. It’s the repeating of lie over and over again till it doesn’t matter what the truth is. It’s another form of using words to change reality. I think Mr. Dick had it spot on.

If there is a real Adjustment Bureau, not the kind of the movie but an established cabal, good thing it can’t get to all of us. The Internet provides a buffer. Fortunately, some of us they can never get to.
