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?


Robert F. Kennedy Assassination Moves Closer to the Courtroom!

Robert Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion under inves­ti­ga­tion once again. New court­room hear­ing will prob­a­bly reveal pres­ence of a con­spir­a­cy and sec­ond gun.


Sirhan Sirhan’s Lawyers Moving to Reopen the Case

Long dor­mant, inves­ti­ga­tion of Robert F. Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion head­ed back to the court­room. Evi­dence proves Sirhan Sirhan not the killer.


Now, About Jared [Lee] Laughner . . .

Shoot­er of Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Gif­fords and slay­er of fed­er­al judge, Jared Lee Laugh­n­er was no lone nut. Influ­enced by far-right and by ele­ments asso­ci­at­ed with the Truther move­ment. More shoot­ers appar­ent­ly involved.


The Milteer Connection Resurfaces

Com­ment: A recent sto­ry about the inves­ti­ga­tion of the JFK assas­si­na­tion con­duct­ed by a for­mer FBI agent has–once again–brought to light the name of Joseph Adams Mil­teer, a Nation­al States Rights Par­ty activist who appears to have had fore­knowl­edge of both the assas­si­na­tions of Pres­i­dent Kennedy and Mar­tin Luther King, Jr. Don Adams also reports […]
