More confirmation of the close relationship between Chicago mobster Johnny Roselli and the CIA is seen in this “60 Minutes” piece from 1981. Mob informer Jimmy “the Weasel” Fratianno confirmed to Mike Wallace that Roselli was contracted by the CIA to assassinate Fidel Castro. In an earlier post I pointed out the close, almost brotherly bond between Roselli and CIA legend “Wild Bill” Harvey, as confirmed by Harvey’s widow.
Fires don’t collapse steel-framed skyscrapers unless said skyscrapers are owned by Larry Silverstein and the date is 9/11/2001. Here’s the proof. Good thing no one in the Silverstein family managed to show up to work that day. I hope Larry had a statue made of his dermatologist and that he prays to it daily.
Sorry kids. I can’t grok any of this Sandy Hook conspiracy nonsense. It’s primary avatar, “school safety expert” Wolfgang Halbig, would have me believe that:
1) No children or adults were actually killed that day on 12/14/2012.
2) In fact, Sandy Hook Elementary School was a closed institution and had no students on 12/14/2012.
3) All the parents of the “slain” students were carpetbaggers who moved to the town between 2009 and 2011 and were given free houses by, presumably, some covert arm of a government agency.
4) All so they could fake having their children killed and rake in money for it.
5) Therefore, presumably, the parents, the town of Newtown, the state and local police, the coroner and hundreds of other people connected to the event must have been in on the scam.
6) The whole thing was a phony, staged event which was years in preparation whose whole purpose was to take our guns away and limit free speech.
In an earlier post I exposed the breathtaking stupidity of another Sandy Hoax conspiracy video. In addition check out the video above of the aforementioned Halbig acting like an unhinged lunatic at a Newtown Board of Education meeting back in June, and his recent appearance at a FOIA hearing in Harford, CT, just 11 days ago on July 8th. You would think a 69-year old man would have learned to comport himself a little better. All of his paranoid screaming, ranting, and bullying does nothing but discredit an already ridiculously improbable conspiracy theory.
Me knows absolutely nothing about firearms. However, idiot that I am, I still noticed something interesting in this video of a test firing of a Mannlicher Carcano rifle of the type supposedly used by Oswald to shoot JFK. Watch the the second counter. After the first shot at 00:14 in the video, the shooter gets off five more shots, the last one at 00:26. By my reckoning the first shot happened “late” on the 14 second mark and the fifth subsequent shot was right after it turned to the 26 second mark – in other words, about 11.5 seconds later. The shooter is firing as rapidly as he can. 11.5 seconds divided by 5 shots is exactly 2.3 seconds between shots.
Interestingly, the Warren Commission also test fired the Carcano and concluded that a shooter would need a minimum of 2.3 seconds to get off a shot, which is of course an exact match to what is shown here in the video.
The shooter here is aiming straight at a stationary target. Oswald would have been shooting at a target that was six floors below him and moving away from him at an angle and going downhill, so it would be reasonable to conclude that he would have needed significantly more than the 2.3 second minimum, even if he was a crack shot. However, Oswald’s Marine colleagues testified that his marksmanship was a joke. To further complicate the matter, the specific weapon actually recovered in the TSBD was in poor shape and didn’t operate as well as the one seen here.
The late Vincent Bugliosi quite fatuously claimed that the Carcano could have been fired in as little as 1.6 seconds, but demonstrations like this one show that to be clearly impossible.
For more background please check out some of my earlier posts where I argue quite persuasively that Governor John Connally was struck by a bullet at right around frame 295 of the Zapruder film – a notion which, on its own, proves that there had to have been a conspiracy in the JFK assassination.
Interesting contemporary recreation of Oswald’s ride into Dallas on the morning of November 22, 1963.
Interesting to note that Buell Frazier, featured in the reenactment above, still insists to this day that Oswald’s package couldn’t have held a rifle:
According to the federal government’s own official investigation, “World Trade Center 7 collapsed [on 9-11-2001] because of fires fueled by office furnishings.”
This revelation should have put all existing demolition companies out of business.
My proposal: Start a new company based on NIST’s groundbreaking findings. One no longer needs to know anything about physics, structural engineering, or controlled demolition in order to do this sort of thing professionally. To demolish a building of any size, all you need to do is:
a) turn off the building’s power and sprinkler system
b) send some people in to a couple of floors to set a few carpets, desks, and couches on fire.
c) wait several hours for the building to collapse neatly into it’s own footprint at free-fall speed. Voila!
Shouldn’t be difficult to get start-up funding since this method of demolishing a building has been officially validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
CIA legend Bill Harvey’s widow, in this interview recorded in 1999, speaks to her late husband’s virulent hatred of Jack and Bobby Kennedy and to the close, brotherly bond between her late husband and mobster Johnny Roselli. This is the same Johnny Roselli who is described by Chicago mobster James Files as being one of the organizers of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The same man who was found floating in a barrel off the coast of Florida with his legs chopped off in 1976 after being called to testify before Congress about the mob/CIA alliance.
C.G. Harvey makes what appears to be a Freudian slip toward the end of this clip when she mentions that an FBI official had recruited Roselli to assassinate Kennedy before she corrects herself to say Castro was the assassination target. However, we know that the FBI wouldn’t have recruited anyone to kill Castro since the FBI only handles domestic law enforcement. The fact of a CIA/mob alliance is already well-established. It was certainly the CIA, and likely Harvey himself or someone close to him, who recruited Roselli for assassination attempts on Castro, not the FBI. Given the hatred Harvey and other CIA officials had for Kennedy and the war going on between Bobby Kennedy and the Mob, the notion of a Mob/CIA alliance to target John Kennedy, as described by Files, does not seem that farfetched. This interview with Harvey’s widow only reinforces that perception.
Who is this woman? Why am I posting this? You really have to be familiar with the whole New Orleans angle on the JFK assassination to appreciate how interesting this interview is. Anna Lewis is mentioned in Judy Vary Baker’s book Me and Lee. Here she corroborates a lot of the information in Baker’s book. To wit:
1) Lee Oswald and Judy did have an affair in New Orleans in the summer of 1963.
2) Lee knew retired FBI man Guy Bannister with whom he shared adjacent office space and in whose office he stored guns.
3) Lee was acquainted with David Ferrie and discussed plots to kill Fidel Castro with him.
4) Lee, Jack Ruby, and New Orleans mob boss Carlos Marcello were all acquainted.
5) David Ferrie had a bunch of “microscopes” in his apartment, which provides a small degree of corroboration of his having been involved in the “cancer plot” to kill Castro described in Judy’s book and in Ed Haslams’ Dr. Mary’s Monkey.
6) The suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of Bannister in 1964 and the atmosphere of fear that prevailed in the city at the time among those who had known Oswald.
Her overall description of Oswald rings true as it jibes with others’ impressions of him – that he was laconic to the point of being rude, was arrogant and seemed to have an overly high opinion of himself, and that he was domineering and possessive with women (check out Michael Paine’s Warren Commission testimony for a very similar description of Lee).
Anna Lewis makes it pretty obvious that she didn’t really like Judy Baker, so that adds to her credibility imho. I don’t really know when this interview was taped. Toward the end of it you can hear Baker’s voice in the background prompting Lewis for more recollections. It looks like Judy talked Lewis into making this recording sometime before Lewis died but I doubt if she paid her anything for it. Baker, after all, never really made any money off of the story.
