This speech by Abraham Bolden is very revealing. It confirms what Russ Baker has written in his marvelous book Family of Secrets. Bolden, the first African-American man to serve for the Secret Service has quite an interesting story to tell. Bolden served during the Kennedy years and was named by Kennedy himself on the White House beat. He says that the Secret Service was openly racist in those years, toward blacks at least, and that its agents were frustrated toward Kennedy for hiring a black man. Some agents were saying privately that they wouldn’t do anything to defend the President and that he would soon be « taken care of ». Apparently, he was not eager enough for some people to invade Cuba and needed to be replaced by somebody who would be. Bolden heard that a hotel maid reported having seen a room equipped with riffles and maps of the President’s itinerary. This itinerary for a Chicago visit in the fall of 1963 was similar to the following Dallas visit on November 22nd 1963. Bolden tried to speak about it, before and after the assassination. According to him, reports have been changed to cover for the perpetrators of the assassination. For example, an incident involving the security of the President that occured on October the 27th 1963 was retyped to November the 28th 1963. Because Bolden didn’t shut his mouth, he was arrested and tried on bogus charges, and sent to a mental hospital.
Stalin wouldn’t have done it better. This speech was given recently. It expresses for me the true nature of JFK, completely different from the propaganda that the people who engineered this coup try to make us believe. A recent book published by Random House and titled Once Upon A Secret, by Mimi Alford, is a good example of such propaganda and smear attempts. Thanks to Russ Baker for having unearthed this piece of truly revealing information. Here is the article on whowhatwhy.com where you can listen to the speech. Baker gave several interviews to radio host and antifascist researcher Dave Emory. To access these interviews, see this post.
Thanks to Russ Baker from WhoWhatWhy.com to have rediscovered and shared with us this incredible performance by comedian Bill Hicks. Through humor, Hicks reminds us that the official version of JFK’s assassination is ridiculous. By the way, Russ Baker has researched this topic for five years. These efforts produced a remarkable book titled Family of Secrets. Check it out.
I hesitated a lot before covering this story, and then suddenly I decided to go ahead with it. I wasn’t sure exactly what to think, I had certain doubts and questions but now I see more clearly. In fact, what I actually thought on first impression has imposed itself as the valid explanation. I also have to mention that the story was covered as well by people I respect in the progressive sector and because they covered it in a way that I feel is not correct, I feel obligated to retort and set the record strait. I became aware of this story through the Boiling Frogs show and the Peter B. Collins show. As you may know, the websites for these two shows are listed on your right in the category Politics and Policy, and I also took the time to write a description of them in the section Resistance that you can read here. So I was more than perplex about the incident and the coverage they made of it.
First of all, let me set the scene to help you understand the context. Hillary Clinton is giving a speech about freedom of speech on the internet and let me precise as well that he video available on Youtube for this incident could be better. The framing, at the beginning of the scene, doesn’t allow us to see the whole room, with McGovern it it. We only see Clinton and we have to make do with it. This room, as the camera frames back, reveals itself to be of a relatively small dimension, and filled with people who are relax and seemingly willing to listen to a speech. And then we witness McGovern being seized by security guards, and after a few seconds we can hear him shout « So this is America? », and the video ends. I wish we could have a better document on which to base our analysis but all we can do is rely on this one. Continuer la lecture →
