In the Mel Gibson film “Edge of Darkness,” a mysterious consultant to a group of conspirators says, in regard to covering their tracks for a series of murders, “…make it so convoluted that anyone can have a theory, but no one’s got the facts.” Many theories have been offered about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, but the truth is not hard to find. The communists killed Kennedy. And they have the ideological motivation to kill President Trump.
During a year in which Russian interference in the American political process is considered a hot topic, one might think that the communist role in the assassination of an American president would be examined in detail, and that the progeny of the groups which motivated Lee Harvey Oswald to kill JFK would be scrutinized and even banned as criminal organizations. But that’s hard to do when we have the example of John Brennan, who would serve as President Obama’s CIA director, admitting that he voted for the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) ticket when he was in college in 1976. That was 13 years after Oswald shot Kennedy and was arrested in Dallas, saying, “Yes, I want attorney Abt.” John Abt was the longtime chief counsel for the CPUSA.
The Russian Role
President Trump has indicated that he will facilitate the release of new documents in the JFK assassination case. That’s a good thing. But he was the candidate who falsely linked the father of Senator Ted Cruz to Lee Harvey Oswald and JFK’s murder. Trump’s associate, marijuana aficionado Roger Stone, is the author of a book that makes the equally outlandish claim that LBJ had JFK murdered.
Trump should review the hard evidence that the Russian regime and Vladimir Putin’s comrades were ultimately responsible for murdering President Kennedy. It may lead to an understanding of how the “old” Soviet terrorism networks of the 1980s have remained in effect and have played a role in the growth of radical Islamic terrorism threatening the United States and Europe. He may also come to an understanding that the communists who murdered Kennedy are alive and well on the streets of America and could soon turn their attention to him.
On Tuesday, a fanatic by the name of Ryan Clayton of a group called “Americans Take Action” entered the Capitol and got close enough to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Trump to throw Russian flags at them as they arrived for a Republican Senate Policy Luncheon.
How did he get so close to the president? Will there even be an inquiry?
This was a serious and ominous breakdown in security for President Trump. Some law enforcement officials were seen in the video of the incident simply walking on by as the anti-Trump zealot threw his Russian flags and shouted “treason.”
Consider the fact that communists who are still inspired by the Soviet Union are holding a November 5 event titled, “The Russian Revolution: 100 years and still shaking the world,” in Washington, D.C. and featuring Brian Becker, a member of the “central committee” of the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL). Becker is also a host on a radio station in Washington, D.C. controlled by the Russian government through a propaganda front called Sputnik International.
When I paid $100.00 to attend and cover the ANSWER Coalition’s “People’s Congress of Resistance” in September at Howard University, it was “BBecker” from a group called “Justice First” who informed me that they were refunding my money and I couldn’t attend. I was told they didn’t want me to “disrupt the meeting,” a spurious charge designed to conceal what was really going on. Brian Becker, co-director of ANSWER Coalition and co-founder of the PSL, was one of the speakers at the event.
Official literature disclosed that other speakers included representatives of anti-police and pro-North Korea organizations and an official of the embassy of Venezuela.
During his U.N. address, Trump had said, “The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure. Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems.”
Such comments have made Trump into a target for the communists, just like JFK was.
The number of communist groups active in the U.S. has multiplied, with the Revolutionary Communist Party, a Maoist group, threatening revolution on November 4. Its founder, Bob Avakian, was an associate of communist Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who helped launch Obama’s political career.
While these are said to be on the fringe, please note that James Hodgkinson, who opened fire on a group of Republican members of Congress in June, was a “Bolshevik Bernie” Sanders supporter who declared he wanted to “terminate” Trump and the Republicans. Incredibly, West Point has just graduated a cadet who declares “communism will win” and has proclaimed himself a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.
Judging by what we see on the streets on America, in the violence of Antifa and the “Refuse Fascism” crowd, there are many more like James Hodgkinson or even Lee Harvey Oswald out there, some of them products of the “Marxist Madrassas” known as colleges and universities. In the case of the West Point grad, they already have military training and skills, including rifle marksmanship.
How many more like him are there in the military academies?
Blood on Their Hands
Communist organizations still operate in the United States because of clever lawyers who insist their criminal activities are somehow protected under the law and the Constitution. In this context, one of the most interesting connections Oswald had to communism was his request after being arrested for CPUSA attorney John Abt. The communist lawyer admits in his book, Advocate and Activist, that Oswald had written to the CPUSA for information and how to join, and that CPUSA official Arnold Johnson had “sent a reply of no consequence, enclosing some promotional brochures.” After the JFK assassination, Abt said he urged Johnson and another party official, Gus Hall, to “inform the FBI about the letter from Oswald,” because the CPUSA was an “innocent” party in the affair. He said, “We never again heard from the FBI on the matter.”
Of course, Oswald never needed a lawyer. Jack Ruby, who killed Oswald, is believed by Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest ranking intelligence official ever to defect from the Soviet bloc, to have been a Cuban agent whose assignment was to keep Oswald from talking. Pacepa, the former Romanian intelligence chief, wrote a booklet on the Kennedy assassination documenting that Oswald was recruited by the KGB when he was a U.S. Marine stationed in Japan and that, after defecting to the Soviet Union, he came back to America three years later for the express purpose of killing Kennedy. Even though the Soviets, for their own reasons, subsequently tried “to turn Oswald off,” Oswald went ahead with the plan and was already “programmed to kill” by the communists.
Kenneth J. Dillon, a former Foreign Service officer and intelligence analyst, writes that “Given Oswald’s aggressive mentality [he had tried to kill right-wing General Edwin A. Walker] and track record (well known to the KGB), it would have required very little for the KGB to insert into his mind the suggestion that he should assassinate Kennedy. Indeed, virulent communist hate propaganda during Oswald’s years in the Soviet Union might have instilled in his impressionable brain the need to take action, as the occasion presented itself, against those like the American president who thwarted the progress of communism.”
The evidence is overwhelming that he came into contact with communist operatives in the United States, where he became a disciple of Marxist groups like the CPUSA, the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, and the Socialist Workers Party. William J. Murray writes in his book, My Life Without God, that his mother, atheist Madalyn Murray O’Hair, was a communist who was ordered to report to an office of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee and destroy any references in the files to Oswald’s involvement with the group.
The CPUSA is a political entity once funded and directed by Moscow which has just sent some of its young members to Vladimir Putin’s communist World Festival of Youth and Students in Russia. The event was designed, in part, to “honor the 100th anniversary of the great October Revolution.” These young Marxists will return to the U.S. to do Moscow’s bidding,
It seems like communism hasn’t died after all, and that Putin, the Russian President and former KGB officer, has a soft spot for the days of Red Russia.
Terminating Anti-Communist Democrats
The communists killed Kennedy because he was determined to stop communism’s advance around the world. Former CIA officer Brian Latell’s book, Castro’s Secrets, includes the additional revelation from a high-ranking Cuban defector that communist dictator Fidel Castro, who had recommended a Soviet first strike nuclear attack on the U.S., had foreknowledge of a Soviet plot to kill JFK. This establishes beyond any doubt that there was a communist plot to kill Kennedy and that Oswald carried it out.
JFK’s brother Robert, who had worked for anti-communist Senator Joe McCarthy, was killed by a Palestinian Marxist, Sirhan Sirhan, in 1968.
Interestingly, in his book, Advocate and Activist, CPUSA attorney John Abt writes openly about the CPUSA in the American political system, saying its role “was to push the Democratic Party to the left.” Abt notes that the two CPUSA members elected to Congress, Johnny Bernard from Minnesota and Hugh DeLacy from Washington State, were elected as Democrats. DeLay had close personal relations with Leon Panetta, the former leftist Congressman who became Obama’s Secretary of Defense and CIA director.
Over time, the Democratic Party abandoned its anti-communism, and various members of its Progressive Caucus openly embraced Castro. In 2008 and again in 2012, the CPUSA openly backed Barack Hussein Obama for president. CPUSA insiders knew that Obama had been groomed for his career by a suspected Soviet espionage agent by the name of Frank Marshall Davis. In effect, the Russians had captured the U.S. presidency.
The list of favors to the Russians is a long one. Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton carried forward a variety of pro-Russian policies, ranging from the Uranium One deal to the New START Treaty cutting America’s nuclear arsenal.
Hence, the “Trump is a Russian agent” investigation launched by Obama and carried forward by Russia-gate Special Counsel Robert Mueller is a complete diversion. What the Russians have done is mount a disinformation operation to protect their agents of influence in the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party. That’s where the treason can be found.
We saw this kind of misdirection before in regard to the JFK assassination. Former communist spy chief Pacepa notes that the Soviets tried to mask their connection to Oswald through a sophisticated disinformation and propaganda campaign called “Dragon Operation.” They spawned such bizarre conspiracies as that JFK was murdered by LBJ, his vice-president, or the CIA, or right-wingers in Dallas.
At the same time, the Soviets dispatched a Soviet “defector” by the name of Yuri Nosenko to the U.S. after the assassination. Among other things, he told the CIA that Lee Harvey Oswald was not a Soviet agent. Eventually, the CIA accepted his fantastic claims, with then-CIA director Michael Hayden giving Nosenko a ceremonial flag and official letter of thanks before his death in 2008.
As a result, the Russians have never been held responsible for this monstrous crime.
Reagan Understood the Russians
President Ronald Reagan certainly understood what had happened. As noted by Professor Paul Kengor, Reagan blamed the communists for JFK’s murder, noting “…a president was murdered by one who renounced his American citizenship to embrace the godless philosophy of communism, and it was communist violence he brought to our land. The shattering sound of his shots were still ringing in our ears when a policy decision was made to play down his communist attachment lest we provoke the Soviet Union.”
Former FBI agent Herman Bly in his book, Communism, the Cold War, and the FBI Connection, says that the possibility of a nuclear war, coming so soon after the Cuban missile crisis, is why the communist connection to Russia and Cuba was played down. Bly, who reviewed secret documents on the Kennedy assassination, writes, “…I believe the heads of the FBI, CIA, and President Johnson wanted the Oswald case brought to a conclusion as fast as possible as they did not want another crisis with the Soviet Union so soon after the Cuban missile crisis.”
In this context, it is noteworthy that Kengor’s new book, A Pope and a President: John Paul II, Ronald Reagan, and the Extraordinary Untold Story of the 20th Century, confirms another horrendous crime of the communists — that the Soviets were behind the May 13, 1981, attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II. Kengor says that Reagan’s CIA director Bill Casey confirmed this fact in an investigation he commissioned outside of the official CIA “establishment,” which resisted finding the Russians responsible.
The evidence shows that the Russians have not only interfered in our political process, but are responsible for the murder of an American president, the attempted murder of a pope, and the installation of President Obama.
But nobody wants to talk about that.
To rectify this situation, my group America’s Survival is holding a November 10 Washington, D.C. conference on Russia-gate, focusing on the evidence that Barack Obama is the real Russian agent. One of the presenters, filmmaker Joel Gilbert, promises some new information about what he calls Obama’s “real father,” the CPUSA operative and suspected Soviet espionage agent Frank Marshal Davis. Gilbert says, “Both Frank Marshall Davis and Barack Obama made it a lifelong passion to undermine the United States at home and abroad. Like father like son.”
It’s another bizarre twist in a story that remains largely untold by the fake news media.
