FTR #175 Fortunate Son I – The Death of John F. Kennedy, Jr.

Listen: One segment

When John F. Kennedy, Jr. died in the crash of a private plane in July of 1999, media pundits ruminated at length about the recklessness of the Kennedys and “the Kennedy curse”. This program explores the striking contradictions between the official version of JFK, Jr.’s death and the facts concerning his demise. The available data suggest that JFK, Jr. may have been the victim of foul play.

The program consists of an interview with veteran journalist John Bryan, who worked for the San Francisco Examiner (among other papers). John’s experience with the Examiner led him to begin questioning the official version of the story. Familiar with the Examiner’s weekend publishing practices, John became convinced that the Examiner (for whatever reason) was deliberately withholding the story. (Kennedy’s plane crashed on a Friday evening.) Sensing a possible cover-up, Bryan religiously combed the print and electronic media for the truth about the deaths of Kennedy, his wife and sister-in-law.

Beginning with discussion of Kyle Brady (a veteran pilot who flew from the same airport Kennedy departed from), Bryan relates Brady’s observation that JFK, Jr.’s preflight actions indicated that Kennedy seemed to feel that something was wrong with the plane.

Next, Bryan discusses the reality of the conditions around Martha’s Vineyard at the time of Kennedy’s disappearance. Contrary to news reports at the time, the weather was clear and the visibility was from between two and five miles. Kennedy was about four minutes from the airport, was within visual contact radius of the island and had radioed the airport to get permission to land. He did not broadcast a “Mayday” distress call. Eyewitnesses reported Kennedy’s plane approaching the airport at an altitude of less than 100 feet. (This contrasts markedly with the “radar track” which was leaked to the media, showing Kennedy’s plane beginning its “graveyard spiral” at an altitude of 1800 ft. It is extraordinarily unlikely that Kennedy would have been at that altitude when coming in for a landing. Contrary to press reports at the time of Kennedy’s death, he was an excellent pilot with over 300 hours of flying time. Some reports erroneously said he had as little as 35 hours.)

Mr. Bryan also reports eyewitness reports of seeing a “flash” or explosion over the water when Kennedy’s plane disappeared. Most importantly, John recounts numerous observations by media political pundits that Kennedy was going to be offered either the Presidential or, more likely, the Vice-Presidential nomination, in an attempt to assure victory for the Democrats in the election of 2000. His death eliminated that possibility. In addition, Mr. Bryan discusses the extraordinary secrecy that surrounded the retrieval and disposal of the plane’s wreckage and the bodies of the deceased. Reporters were not allowed to view the wreckage or the autopsy. No autopsy photographs were taken, in direct contravention of Massachusetts law. The bodies were cremated within 10 hours of discovery and buried at sea. John points out that the Kennedys are Catholic and Catholics traditionally bury their dead. Cremation was completely forbidden by the Catholic Church until 1963, and since then only under certain extraordinary circumstances. Scattering ashes at sea is strictly forbidden. Bryan questions this extraordinary secrecy and departure from accepted procedure and points out that the tail section of the plane appears to have disappeared.

The discussion features several observations by Mr. Emory, including the fact that the Kennedy assassination was back on the political front burner after Boris Yeltsin publicly gave President Clinton the KGB files on Oswald (which demonstrated that they felt Oswald was probably an American agent). Mr. Emory also points out that the Kennedy assassination was part of a lawsuit that was proceeding through the courts in 1999.

The program concludes with a reading of the obituary of Anthony Stanislaus Radziwill, JFK, Jr.’s best friend. (They were best men at each others weddings.) Radziwill died of cancer about three weeks after the death of Kennedy. (The intelligence community has been able to assassinate people via cancer for decades.) A broadcast journalist, Radziwill had covered the O.J. Simpson case and had received a Peabody award for his work on the emergence of “neo”-Nazism in America. (There are numerous evidentiary tributaries between the O.J. Simpson case and the intelligence community, including the Kennedy assassination. The killing of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson appears to have been the work of Nazi elements.)

One comment for “FTR #175 Fortunate Son I – The Death of John F. Kennedy, Jr.”

  1. LOL! Roger Stone claims to have shocking new evidence regarding the death of JFK Jr. Guess who dunnit:

    Media Matters

    Trump Ally Roger Stone Writing Entire Book Alleging That The Clintons Secretly Murdered JFK Jr.

    Stone: JFK Jr. “Was Murdered By The Clintons Because He Was In The Way”
    Blog ››› 4/12/2016 ››› ERIC HANANOKI

    Roger Stone is writing a book based on his conspiracy theory that the Clintons murdered John F. Kennedy Jr. Stone is an longtime ally and friend of Donald Trump, who has previously used the discredited operative’s research in attacks against the Clintons.

    Stone worked as a top political aide to Trump’s presidential campaign before exiting in August. Stone is a notorious “dirty trickster” who formed the anti-Hillary Clinton group C.U.N.T. in 2008 and has spent much of the 2016 cycle pushing smears about the Clintons. He has a history of using racist and sexist attacks against media figures, and was recently banned by CNN and MSNBC. He currently heads the pro-Trump super PAC Committee to Restore America’s Greatness and is a frequent Trump supporter in the media. Stone has been under heavy criticism recently because of his stated plan to “disclose the hotels and the room numbers of those delegates who are directly involved in” allegedly stealing the nomination from Trump at the Republican convention.

    Stone last month appeared on the internet radio show of fringe conspiracy theorist James Fetzer, who believes the Holocaust, Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and 9/11 attacks were faked. During a brief aside, Stone mentioned he was writing books about Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and the alleged murder of John F. Kennedy Jr. “by the Clintons”:

    ROGER STONE: I have coming up next year a book which I make the case that John F. Kennedy Jr. was murdered. And he was murdered by the Clintons because he was in the way. Now I have extraordinary new evidence that nobody else has seen.


    Fetzer later told Stone that JFK Jr. was assassinated and offered to give Stone “leads” proving it. Stone responded, “That’s great to know, Jim. As you know, there’s really nobody in the researcher community that I respect more than you.”

    JFK Jr. died after a plane he was piloting crashed in July 1999. The National Transportation Safety Board found that his plane crash was an accident and the probable cause was the “pilot’s failure to maintain control of the airplane during a descent over water at night, which was a result of spatial disorientation. Factors in the accident were haze and the dark night.”

    Trump has sourced some of his attacks against the Clintons to Stone. During a January 5 appearance on Fox News’ Hannity, host Sean Hannity asked Trump about calling Hillary Clinton an “enabler” of “one of the great woman abusers of all time,” President Bill Clinton. Trump responded by referencing Stone’s book The Clintons’ War on Women, stating that “a major book’s been written about it, and it’s a book that’s a very well respected book. And it was not a pretty picture, what she did.” Stone co-authored the book with fringe conspiracy theorist Robert Morrow.

    The New York Times noted in December that Trump “appears to be taking a page from the playbook of his former political adviser Roger Stone” with his attacks on the Clintons.

    In October, Trump tweeted a link to Stone’s The Clintons’ War on Women book and commented, “The latest book on Hillary—Wow, a really tough one!” Stone has said that he and Trump talk “From time to time. … We’re still talking politics. I’m involved with a PAC that is specifically doing one narrow thing, which is collecting evidence of voter fraud.”

    Stone previously wrote that the Clintons did not murder JFK Jr. In The Clintons’ War on Women, Stone argued the Clintons are “plausibly responsible” for the deaths of roughly 40 people, but added, “They are not responsible for the death of John F. Kennedy, Jr., as some researchers have claimed”:

    There is no question that some Clinton critics are excessive. There are widespread claims that the Clintons are responsible for the death of as many as eighty-three people whose knowledge stood in the way of their political ascent. Based on our investigation, the Clintons are only plausibly responsible for the deaths of half the people on this list. They are not responsible for the death of John F. Kennedy, Jr., as some researchers have claimed, though the number of individuals who are both knowledgeable of and pivotal to the Clintons’ grasp for power who die in plane crashes defies mathematical odds.

    During a March 9 appearance on the internet-based program Caravan to Midnight, Stone said JFK Jr. was murdered and “almost everything you’ve been told about his plane crash and death is false or embellished or cooked.”

    Last year, Stone tweeted that “The MURDER of JFK, Jr. will be the subject of my next book #Clintons #guilty” and “JFK Jr was planning on running for NY Senate seat @HillaryClinton wanted. Poor bastard.”

    “I have coming up next year a book which I make the case that John F. Kennedy Jr. was murdered. And he was murdered by the Clintons because he was in the way. Now I have extraordinary new evidence that nobody else has seen.
    So the book with the extraordinary new evidence that nobody else has seen isn’t going to be released until after the election? That seems kind of odd to just sit on such extraordinary evidence when one of the alleged perps is on her way to the White House.

    Oh well, it appears we’ll just have to take Roger at his word. LOL!
