Nazis in New Orleans (#3)

In FTR #188, we discussed the “Hate Bus,” put together by American Nazi Party chief George Lincoln Rockwell to protest the Freedom Riders and the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s. New Orleans American Nazi Party member Ray Leahart was arrested in the Hate Bus incident. Leahart was reportedly seen with Lee Harvey Oswald–neither the FBI nor the Warren Commission accessed Leahart’s arrest record in the incident. This may have been due to the fact that New Orleans Special Agent in Charge Regis Kennedy was very close to Oswald handler Guy Bannister. Leahart was also close to Dallas American Nazi Party member Robert Surrey (Edwin Walker’s personal secretary), who printed up the infamous “Wanted for Treason” poster of JFK. Leahart was also best man at David Duke’s 1972 wedding.

Nazis in New Orleans (#2)

In the most recent Food For Thought post, we began excerpting a recent, massive volume “General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy” by Jeffrey H. Caufield M.D. In this post, we excerpt text discussing David Ferrie’s Nazi musings and associations. “. . . . Baragona was a Nazi from Fort Sill. . . .Garrison also obtained a transcript of a letter written by David Ferrie to Baragona. Next to Baragona’s name, Garrison wrote: ‘Note Baragona is important.’ The letter had been sent to Garrison by Glenn Pinchback, and a carbon copy was sent to Mendel Rivers, a congressman from Georgia. (Pinchback worked in the Operations Command at Fort Sill, where he intercepted mail.) In the letter, Ferrie shared his dream of the re-unification of Germany and living in a world where all the currency was in Deutschmarks. Pinchback’s summation of the letter described a ‘Neo-Nazi plot to enslave America in the name of anti-Communism,’ and ‘a neo-Nazi plot gargantuan in scope.’ The Ferrie letter spoke of the need to kill all the Kennedys and Martin Luther King, Jr. . . .”


Reflections on the Film “Selma” and the Recent Martin Luther King Holiday

The film “Selma” depicts the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Selma, Alabama. In AFA #8, we note profound evidentiary tributaries between that event and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. Links between King’s murder and those of Robert F. Kennedy and his brother are discussed in AFA #9. Others are covered in The Guns of November, Part IV. Even as people celebrate the remarkable Dr. King’s life, our society manifests what the late playwright Arthur Miller warned against in “The Death of a Salesman”, speaking through Willie Loman’s widow: “You can’t just eat the orange and throw away the peel.” Neither his friends, nor those who profess to honor him, will break their silence about the circumstances of his death, despite the extensive body of information on the public record documenting a conspiracy behind his murder.

FTR #809 Days of Future Passed: All in the [Manson] Family?

It has been disclosed that phone taps on convicted Manson Family killer Tex Watson have information that may relate to 12 additional murders. Portrayed by the media as a bunch of wayward hippies, the Manson group, in fact, had participation by neo-Nazi elements, as well as links to the intelligence community. One wonders who the other victims might have been? Might one of them have been Marina Habe, daughter of Hans Habe, an anti-fascist activist and journalist who worked for U.S. intelligence during World War II and afterward–something that would not have sat well with the Underground Reich. One case that has more to it than reaches the eye is the murder of Sharon Tate. Deeply involved with Robert F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign in the Los Angeles area, Tate had been present at a dinner shortly before Kennedy’s assassination at which he reportedly said that he would re-open the investigation into his brother’s murder after getting into the White House.


FTR #789 RFK Assassination Reopened

Robert Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion was not the work of a “lone nut,” any more than were the killings of his brother, Mar­tin Luther King and many oth­ers. Robert Kennedy was dis­patched by the same forces that killed his brother. The assas­si­na­tion of Robert F. Kennedy has been moving toward a for­mal re-opening. In addi­tion to new sci­en­tific infor­ma­tion con­firm­ing that more than eight shots were fired (Sirhan’s gun only held eight), that the “girl in the polka dot dress” was real and indi­ca­tions that Sirhan was indeed hypno-programmed, a wit­ness has come for­ward claim­ing that there was more than one gun­man and that her pre­vi­ous tes­ti­mony was distorted.


FTR #751 Interview with Russ Baker

In this visit with Russ Baker, we introduced some new topics and updated some other inquiries. Noted as a peddler of the untenable “Lee Harvey Oswald as lone nut assassin” hypothesis, Gerald Posner has emerged as a PR functionary for the brother of Afghan president Hamid Karzai. We noted that Bill O’Reilly did some good work on the JFK assassination before conforming to the right-wing ideological dictates of Fox News. Much of the program centered on discussion of the re-opening of the investigation into Robert Kennedy’s assassination. Grant Cooper’s behavior as Sirhan Sirhan’s first defense attorney was stunning.


He’s BAAAAACK! Gerald Posner’s Latest Gig

Like Count Dracula, Gerald Posner keeps coming back. Having led the media charges to discredit Warren Commission critics, critics of the official version of Martin Luther King’s assassination and Ladislas Farago’s research on Martin Bormann’s presence in Latin America, Posner is now defending Afghan president Karzai’s brother against credible charges that he has been on the CIA’s payroll, while participatring significantly in the Afghan heroin trade.


Updating JFK, RFK Assassination Investigations

America’s political assassinations continue to loom large over our political landscape. A recent New York Times obituary touched on Daniel Burros, the American Nazi Party member whose name, address and phone number were in supposed “leftist” Lee Harvey Oswald’s address book. “Family of Secrets” author Russ Baker informs us that Sirhan Sirhan’s first attorney Grant Cooper was under indictment with possible JFK co-conspirator John Roselli when he represented RFK’s accused assassin.


RFK Jr: JFK Assassination Was a Conspiracy

We’ve produced much programming and posting over the years on the assassinations of JFK, RFK and Martin Luther King. All of these killings are connected and, together, comprise the systematic elimination of viable progressive leadership in this country. Stating the obvious, Robert F. Kennedy’s kids RFK jr. and Rory have stated that President Kennedy was not assassinated by a lone nut. We’ve not seen any statements by Kennedy family members about the assassination of Robert Kennedy. That case is heading back into court. The investigation of Robert Kennedy’s assassination yields evidentiary tributaries leading in the direction of his brother’s killing, Dr. King’s assassination and the shooting of George Wallace.


Sending a Message? RFK Jr.’s Wife Found Dead by Hanging

RFK Jr’s wife dead of hanging. An “assisted suicide” to send a message as RFK Sr.’s assassination returns to the courtroom?
