Mr. Pipes: Wake-up!

Reader comment on item: The JFK Assassination's Continued Importance

Submitted by John W. McGinley (United States), Nov 22, 2013 at 10:49

The day the music died.

With all due respect I challenge your blanket denial of what you refer to as "conspiricy theories" of the assasination. Some of them are crackpat; so of them are not. "Right wing" covers a lot of territory. Were the Dulles brothers "right wing"? In any case the firing of of Avery Dulles because of the CIA's botched orchestration of the "Bay of Pigs" did in fact set in motion a "shadow cabinet" which became more and more concerned about Kennedy's ability to lead the Free World in the face of the Soviet threat.

Kennedy won the election because of his father's connections with the Mafia. In another forum I would cite Chapter and Verse. Without that help (especially in Cook County) Richard Nixon would have been elected.

Kennedy himself suffered from Addison's disease and was losing thyrod function. His medications had a negative affect on his personality. He also imbued non-prescription drugs. And his sexual addicition was off the charts.

Kennedy himself accepted the offer profferred by the Mob to be the lover of Marilyn Monroe. She was delegated to get info on this man. When Jack got tired of Marilyn he "farmed" her out to Bobby. The Mob was thrilled ot have such a "mole" in the Attorney General's Office of the United States. But Marilyn and Bobby fell in love with each other. The Mob had lost its mole. They orchestrated her death in a most despicable way. Bobby investigated; found out the truth; and, with the permission of Jack, went on a vendetta against the mob.

Jack won because of the Mob and then he, by way of his brothr, turned on the Mob. Not a clever decision. Only an Irishman would dare to cross the Mob when it was the Mob which enabled him to win the Presidency.

"The enemy of my enemy is my friend." The "shadow cabinet" -- the core of which was the Dulles brothers -- allied itself with the Mob. Carlos Marcello from the New Orleans Mob -- ((he had been expelled from the US by Bobby Kennedy; he illegally returned under the radar)) orchestrated the take-out with the "cover" of the "shadow cabinet." Marcello called upon the Mob in Marseilles to do the "take-out." These are ones who shot from the grassy knoll. Only a fool who looks a the vidio of the assaination would maintian that the shot which blew away the right part of Kennedy's brain came from the rear. Oswald was a fall-guy.

Go ahead. Chuckle and be condescending. I respect you immensely and I have learned much from your blog. But you are WAY off on this. The whole thing can only be called a Coup.
