FTR #821 Continuity of Government, the JFK Assassination and Covert Operations

Analyzing the role of networks originally set up to perpetuate and sustain government in the event of nuclear war, this program highlights the role of Continuity of Government (COG) elements in a number of domestic and/or illegal covert operations. With its own communications network, the COG has proved an effective vehicle for sidestepping normal operational channels in order to realize nefarious aims. The COG-related networks and individuals have figured prominently in aspects of the JFK assassination, Watergate, the October Surprise, the Iran-Contra scandal and events pursuant to the 9/11 attacks. Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld are two of the prominent figures in the COG networks and have been present in the Nixon/Ford, Reagan/Bush, Clinton and George W. Bush administrations.


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.


‘Roid Rage: The Bosches, the Bushes and Sports Doping

The Bush family has been very, very close to the anti-Castro Cuban exile community for decades, including and especially the late Orlando Bosch, head of the CORU organization. Now, it emerges that a relative of Orlando Bosch heads the Biogenesis firm, under investigation for allegedly providing performance-enhancing drugs to professional athletes.


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.


Fox’s Bill O’Reilly and the JFK Assassination

Once a serious investigator, Fox’s Bill O’Reilly proved CIA conspiracy to discredit New Orleans DA Jim Garrison.


McGraw Family (Owners of S & P) are Longtime Intimates of the Bush Family

McGraw family longtime Bush allies. Watch S & P, owned by McGraw family, do what benefits GOP, Bush Family, Underground Reich. S & P’s 2011 downgrading of U.S. debt rating was open politicking.


FTR #743 Interview (#8) with Russ Baker, Author of “Family of Secrets”

The Fourth Estate has become a Fifth Column–the media that should inform us deceive on behalf of those they should expose; Institutionalized power diminishes the publicity for “Family of Secrets.” The Internet allows citizens to fight back.


FTR #741 Bail, Bail, the Gang’s All Here

Foreign Banks borrowed extensively from Fed during the meltdown; aid to Dexia and Depfa needed to avoid munipal fiscal armageddon, stemming partially from Dexia’s apparent criminal activity.
