It was the 40th anniversary of the JFK assassination.
The History Chanel ran a week of special shows..........Remember: A week of The Men Who Killed Kennedy with the extended version including a show featuring Barr McCllellan talking about the involvement of LBJ in the JFK murder.
There was also a chapter featuring Judyth Vary Baker and her relationship with Lee Harvey Oswald.
One very unusual show about an incident at the Cal-Neva Lodge where a horrible meeting between Frank Sinatra, Sam Giancana and Marilyn Monroe took place.
Apparently Marilyn was being influenced not to speak of information she may have had about the Kennedy men in a strong arm sort of way. It is impossible to forget because the show also included an interview with the gentleman who had developed the pictures to go with the incident--he gave the impression he was completely disgusted and saddened by the event.
Never forgetting that show about Marilyn Monroe--it left an awful feeling.
Never seeing that show again and unable to find it.......
So what was the reason those kind of shows suggesting a conspiracy left television?
Are grants for historical shows easier to obtain when they do not show the possibility of a conspiracy.
Was it the change in ownership of those stations?
Do you remember when Frank Sesno headed a panel on the History Channel featuring historian Robert Dallek insisting there was absolutely no evidence of any connection between LBJ and the assassination.
Are things different 11 years later on the 51st anniversary of the Dallas tragedy.
Recently watching a video on you-tube of a recent radio interview with Barr McClellan talking about his book on LBJ: Blood, Money & Power How LBJ Killed JFK
Recently listening to an interview from Roger Stone talking about his book,
The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ
Here is an interview with Roger Stone on Book TV talking about LBJ:
Joseph McBride talking about the corruption of the Dallas police department and the clumsy handling of the Oswald investigation.
So motivated by the viewing one could not resist commenting on the Facebook page of Barr McClellan:
Dear Barr....Really enjoyed your talk on you tube......you were interviewed on a radio show and I put it on my blog, the ronnie republic. I also listened to a very informative talk by Joseph McBride on Tippit.
Do you remember when Frank Sesno came out on the Hx Channel with Dallek as part of the panel and spoke against your book after it aired as part of The Men Who Killed Kennedy.
It is just so nice now that so many have come out that basically corroborate your book, including Roger Stone.
It would be fun to hear what Frank Sesno would say now....because I have always admired his work but their whole theory of going against your book has essentially been proven untrue.
Just saying congratulations on your work but I do not know how you had the confidence to come out....Well done.
This is what I have always maintained....the whole thing was so complex and there were so many threads that seem credible......it is impossible for the public to tie it all together but you and Roger and Joseph McBride have certainly shed light on the Dallas cover-up and the LBJ connection.
It just seems like that part cannot be disputed now.
What do you think and thank you for your time......cl...the ronie re.
And so honored to hear his response:
|Thank you very much. The book itself was easy relative to the reaction. Some tough dissents. The support was overwhelming and will be in the sequel, now heading to final. And under contract for two movies. Parts of the sequel will be released soon. We are moving to closure and justice. Again, thank you. And stick with me. All the best, Barr|
Thank you, Barr, and good luck to you.
