PostTwo Conspiracy Theories: Comparing the Complexity of JFK and Defeating Trump (David Duggan, USA, 01/20/21 3:42 am)
In response to JE's comment, here's a partial list of those in on the JFK conspiracy:
LBJ (who stood to gain the most from Kennedy's assassination: Brother Bobby was on the trail of Bobby Baker, keeper of the Senate who knew LBJ's secrets, particularly how he had enriched himself through ownership of KTBC, one of the few "clear-channel" AM radio stations in the country); the CIA (who had egg on its face after the failed Bay of Pigs invasion and which created the backstory that Commie Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman; future plumber E. Howard Hunt was in Dallas that day); the Chicago mob (through terminal cancer patient and small-time pornographer from Chicago Jack Ruby, which had the motive to kill JFK because Bobby had double-crossed the mob--which had assisted JFK in the crucial West Virginia primary--by investigating its connection to the Teamsters, whose Central States pension fund was then bankrolling Las Vegas, control of which was being contested by the Kansas City and Chicago outfits; Dallas was "neutral territory" and therefore anybody hooked up there could claim plausible deniability); the entire Warren Commission (headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren, but the "brains" behind which was John McCloy, bagman for Rockefeller interests, particularly in Latin America where the Commies--Che Guevara--were afoot).
With Oswald dead, nobody had the motive to do a thorough investigation, and at the time, the federal government had no jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute the assassination of the president (the act authorizing it was not passed until 1971).
By contrast, the only persons needed to be in on the conspiracy to rig the election were the powers behind Dominion, which had contracts to provide voting machines in crucial counties of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan, with a total of 46 electoral votes. All that was needed was a total of less than 250,000 votes to swing these states (MI 150K, PA 70K, WI 20K). Admittedly this was not just a rounding error, but when it is considered that the three states showed a total of more than 2,185,000 more voters in 2020 than in 2016 (more than a 20% uptick in Michigan), it is not out of the realm of possibility of software manipulation particularly of mail-in votes. That Georgia's and Arizona's Dominion-engendered vote totals may be more reliable after examination doesn't negate that these three states' totals, never forensically examined, could have been manipulated.
And the fact that "neutral judges" in these states looked at the evidence and found it wanting doesn't disprove the original conspiracy. Any trial lawyer knows the "institutional bias" against looking behind the curtain of governmental incompetence or fraudulent behavior, particularly when the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court is screaming to his colleagues that he was not going to let that m-f'er be president and demanding that Justices Alito and Thomas take responsibility for the blood in the streets if the Supremes even looked at the claims, let alone ruled on them.
JE comments: David, you've given us much to think about. I just hope Dominion doesn't send me a cease-and-desist letter. They've probably printed up reams of them.
Please tell us more about Chief Justice Roberts, his dressing-down of Thomas and Alito, and the "Mo-fo" incident. I do my darnedest to keep up with the news, but this one is news to me.
