FTR#‘s 1322, 1323 and 1324 Interviews with Jim DiEugenio and Paul Bleau about “Chokeholds”

Intro­duc­tion: These pro­grams set forth the legal con­cept of “Choke­holds” on the JFK assassination–dynamics that prove, legal­ly, that there was a con­spir­a­cy.

These do not nec­es­sar­i­ly res­onate pre­cise­ly with aspects of the his­tor­i­cal record, which embraces, but does not delin­eate, prin­ci­ples of law.

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion and Analy­sis Include: How some lawyers intro­duced the con­cepts we dis­cuss; What is the con­cept of “con­silience?;” Ana­lyze the “Inves­ti­ga­tions Timeline”—detailed in the Intro­duc­tion; What is meant by “Stan­dard of Proof?”; How does “Beyond a Rea­son­able Doubt” fig­ure into the “Choke­holds” con­cept?; How does “Civ­il Stan­dards of Proof” fac­tor in?; How does the HSCA Stan­dard of Proof” fac­tor in?; How does the ARRB’s Stan­dard of Proof fac­tor in?; Finally—the JFK Assas­si­na­tions Choke­hold Stan­dard of Proof”—How does this fac­tor in?; Analy­sis of the 60 years of obstruc­tion of jus­tice in the JFK case; Analy­sis of the Rock­e­feller Com­mis­sion; The Rock­e­feller Com­mis­sion’s inclu­sion of Lyman Lem­nitzer and Ronald Reagan–two very strange choic­es; The Rock­e­feller Com­mis­sion’s selec­tion of War­ren Com­mis­sion coun­sel David Belin to han­dle its legal maneu­ver­ing; The Rock­e­feller Com­mis­sion’s use of Richard Lindenberg–a Paper­clip vet­er­an; Review of the deep polit­i­cal role of Leon Jawors­ki in the tri­al over the killing of Cor­po­ral Kun­ze, the Dachau Med­ical tri­als and his par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Texas Court of Inquiry along with Robert Storey; Review of net­work­ing between Ray Roc­ca, Paul Patri­ni and James Angle­ton dat­ing back to World War II; The House Select Com­mit­tee on Assas­si­na­tions’ use of George Joan­nides as a liai­son with the CIA; Review of Joan­nides’ work with Car­los Bringuier and the DRE at the time of the Kennedy assas­si­na­tion; review of the HSCA’s endorse­ment of the doc­tored autop­sy evi­dence at Bethes­da; Review of Water­gate and Nixon’s pres­ence in Dal­las on 11/22/1963.


FTR#1321 The Assassination of John Lennon

Intro­duc­tion: As the title sug­gests, this pro­gram sets forth facts about John Lennon’s mur­der.

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion of Lennon’s Killing Include: The fact that the bul­lets that killed Lennon entered from his left side, where­as pat­sy Mark David Chap­man was on Lennon’s right; The door­man at Lennon’s res­i­dence, who was stand­ing on Lennon’s left was José San­jenís Per­do­mo, a “for­mer” oper­a­tive for the CIA; Per­do­mo’s back­ground in the CIA’s Bay of Pigs oper­a­tion and pri­or ser­vice as a chief of police in pre-Cas­tro Cuba; Per­do­mo’s alleged links to Water­gate bur­glar and JFK assas­si­na­tion par­tic­i­pant Frank Stur­gis; Per­do­mo’s six-hours of con­ver­sa­tion with Chap­man pri­or Lennon’s return from the record­ing stu­dio; an eye­wit­ness’s alle­ga­tion that Per­do­mo did the shoot­ing; Per­do­mo’s seiz­ing of the alleged mur­der weapon, which was not test­ed for fin­ger­prints; Chap­man’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in a music club in Hawaii, to which Amer­i­can Nazi, Rea­gan shoot­ing pat­sy and Bush asso­ciate John Hinck­ley, Jr. also belonged; The extreme­ly unlike­ly pos­si­bil­i­ty that Chap­man could have per­formed the marks­man­ship required to kill Lennon; The pos­si­bil­i­ty that Chap­man may have been a mind-con­trolled pat­sy; Chap­man’s prison vis­its by MKULTRA asso­ciates Bernard Dia­mond and Nathan Kline; Yoko Ono’s cre­ma­tion of Lennon’s corpse with­in 36 hours of the killing; Ono’s strong links to the Yasu­da Zaibat­su; Ono’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the recon­se­cra­tion of a Japan­ese Shin­to tem­ple, destroyed in the after­math of the attack on Pearl Har­bor; Ono’s asso­ci­a­tion with an antique deal­er and alleged CIA con­tract agent.


Mr. Emory’s Agenda Going Forward

In the spring, fol­low­ing a bad­ly-need­ed rest, Mr. Emory will con­tin­ue to pro­duce some new pro­grams, how­ev­er they will be mixed-in with old­er pro­grams that are essen­tial to under­stand­ing the mate­r­i­al. Vital series such as ten very infor­ma­tive inter­views with Peter Lev­en­da about his book “The Hitler Lega­cy” will be re-cycled, along with the new shows. Those lis­ten­ers who wish to keep up with the week­ly flow of events must sub­scribe to Mr. Emory’s Patre­on plat­form in order to “remain cur­rent.” Con­tain­ing all of Mr. Emory’s work on Covid-19 and the Ukraine War, the lat­est 32GB flash dri­ve is now avail­able! (The last iter­a­tion of the dri­ve is almost two years old.) WFMU-FM is pod­cast­ing For The Record–You can sub­scribe to the pod­cast HERE.


R.I.P. Daniel Hopsicker

Over many years, it was Mr. Emory’s priv­i­lege and hon­or to have inter­viewed Daniel Hop­sick­er fre­quent­ly and at length. In the wake of his pass­ing from can­cer on 8/22/2023 at the age of 72, we mourn the loss of this pro­fes­sion­al, and yet can be very glad for his hav­ing shared his work with us. Dr. Jef­frey Sachs “pret­ty con­vinced” Covid came from a U.S. Bio-Lab. WFMU-FM is pod­cast­ing For The Record–You can sub­scribe to the pod­cast HERE. Mr. Emory emphat­i­cal­ly rec­om­mends that listeners/readers get the 32GB flash dri­ve con­tain­ing all of Mr. Emory’s 43 years on the air, plus a library of old anti-fas­cist books on easy-to-down­load PDF files.


Grateful, Tearful Farewell to Roy of Hollywood: Rest In Peace, My Brother

Since 1987, For The Record and the oth­er Archive Shows and lec­tures I have record­ed over the decades have gone out on the South­ern Cal­i­for­nia air­waves from San­ta Bar­bara to the Mex­i­can Bor­der. Those broad­casts were real­ized by Roy of Hol­ly­wood, real name Roy Tuck­man.  His long-run­ning pro­gram has held down the mid­night to 5am slot on Mon­day through Thurs­day nights (tech­ni­cal­ly Tues­day through Fri­day morn­ings) for more than 40 years. Ear­ly on Thurs­day morn­ing (4/20/2023), Roy passed away rough­ly two months short of what would have been his 85th birth­day. Dr. Jef­frey Sachs “pret­ty con­vinced” Covid came from a U.S. Bio-Lab.

FTR#‘s 1294, 1295, 1296 The End and the Beginning, Parts One, Two and Three

Tak­ing stock of sev­er­al dynam­ics that threat­en to end our species and civ­i­liza­tion, this  begins series with analy­sis of the back­ground and phi­los­o­phy of Klaus Schwab, his father, his men­tor Hen­ry Kissinger and transna­tion­al cor­po­rate influ­ences on the deci­sive­ly impor­tant World Eco­nom­ic Forum.

Key Points of Analy­sis and Dis­cus­sion Include: The Esch­er-Wyss firm of Switzer­land; Its employ­ment of Klaus Schwab and his father; The com­pa­ny’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with Nazi Ger­man; The com­pa­ny’s role in pro­duc­ing tech­nol­o­gy for the Third Reich’s atom­ic bomb pro­gram; Klaus Schwab’s aca­d­e­m­ic men­tor­ing by Hen­ry Kissinger, Kissinger’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Nazi intel­li­gence milieu import­ed into the U.S. after WWII; The Esch­er-Wyss fir­m’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Apartheid South African nuclear pro­gram; The deci­sive influ­ence of the Club of Rome on the World Eco­nom­ic Forum; the WEF’s qua­si-eugen­ics poli­cies.

We then note that Peter Thiel’s father also worked on the Apartheid South African atom­ic bomb.

The series then chron­i­cles analy­sis by elite Pen­ta­gon-con­nect­ed sci­en­tists that CO2 could be used as a weapon of mass-destruc­tion.

Next, we high­light the [belat­ed] alarm that AI’s could pro­duce the enslave­ment and/or destruc­tion of soci­ety.

Over the decades, Mr. Emory’s analy­sis has focused on the enor­mous impor­tance of Pres­i­dent Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion. The series next high­lights some of the Nazi con­nec­tions to that promi­nent event.

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion and Analy­sis Include: The Joint Chiefs’ meet­ing with their Ger­man coun­ter­parts [all WWII vet­er­ans] in the Pen­ta­gon on the after­noon of 11/22/1963; The pri­ma­ry role of Gen­er­al Ger­hard Wes­sel in the Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion, from WWII to his suc­ceed­ing of Rein­hard Gehlen as head of the BND; Lud­wig Erhard’s sched­uled state din­ner on 11/25/1963–the day of JFK’s funer­al; Lud­wig Erhard’s net­work­ing with the SS and plan­ning for the post WWII eco­nom­ic revival of the Third Reich; Nazi Gen­er­al Adolf Heusinger’s ascent to the top NATO mil­i­tary posi­tion, a role that gave him an office in the Pen­ta­gon.

We con­clude with brief dis­cus­sion of the use of Agent Orange in Viet­nam, a sub­ject to which we will return in our next pro­gram in the series.


Latest Patreon Talks: Reflections on Assassinations of MLK and RFK and Mind Control (Four Articles Posted)

Mr. Emory’s Patre­on Archive con­tin­ues to grow: In addi­tion to bril­liant expos­es by Hal Sander­son and “Mon­ty” about the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty, fas­cism and the new age and ground-break­ing research about the depth and scope of Nazi pen­e­tra­tion of U.S. intel­li­gence, the most recent talks revis­it the assas­si­na­tions of MLK and RFK, as well as the sub­ject of mind con­trol.

FTR#‘s 1285, 1286 and 1287: Interview #‘s 22, 23 and 24 with Jim DiEugenio about “JFK Revisited”

Con­tin­u­ing our vis­its with Jim DiEu­ge­nio, we alter our focus some­what to JFK’s civ­il rights pol­i­cy. Although the sub­ject is pre­sent­ed in JFK Revis­it­ed, we delin­eate a deep dive into a mag­nif­i­cent group of four essays that Jim did on his web­site www.kennedysandking.com: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.

To make a VERY long sto­ry short: “The Kennedy admin­is­tra­tion did more to advance civ­il rights in three years than the pri­or 18 did in near­ly a cen­tu­ry. This is sim­ply a mat­ter of record. (See the chart at the end of Part 3.)”


FTR#‘s 1281 and 1282: Interviews #18 and #19 with Jim DiEugenio and David Talbot

Con­tin­u­ing our series of inter­views about JFK Revis­it­ed, we vis­it with both Jim DiEu­ge­nio and David Tal­bot, the author of Broth­ers and The Dev­il’s Chess­board. (We have high­light­ed infor­ma­tion from the lat­ter in FTR#‘s 894, 1162.)

Note that David Tal­bot is a major con­trib­u­tor to the com­men­tary in JFK Revis­it­ed.

The broad­cast high­lights the many top­ics of dis­cus­sion that David Tal­bot con­tributes dur­ing the pro­gram. We also high­light David’s prob­lems get­ting The Dev­il’s Chess­board reviewed.

Of note, as well, is David’s dis­cus­sion of a doc­u­ment that he and Lisa Pease dis­cov­ered: On the week­end of JFK’s assas­si­na­tion, Allen Dulles had decamped to Camp Peary aka “The Farm”–a major CIA train­ing facil­i­ty. The doc­u­ment lat­er dis­ap­peared.
