Guest Post: 5 Tips For Choosing The Right Management System For Your Business

By Annie Mark

Choosing a good management system is one of the main outputs for managers who want to manage their business more optimally. Know 5 tips for choosing the right system to use. Zoe Talent Solutions will give you a brief explanation about Business and Management skills.Search

Before defining which management, a system should be used, it is important to take into account the needs of the company. Think about what it really takes to find the benefits of every software, such as departmental integration cash flow and workflow, reporting, and the like.
System Usability

We live in an age where speed and timelessness are cherished, and wasting time on a complex system is not acceptable. Opting for an intuitive, easy-to-use system helps you not to waste time on a messy system. The fewer the screens have to be opened, the more dynamic and effective it becomes.
Mobility
The growth of Internet access and the number of smartphones is increasing in Brazil and shows that more and more people are connected. Using a system that supports online devices is a great way to achieve greater results.

Data Storage

Where should store company data be stored? In the enterprise, taking up physical space, or in the cloud?

Opting for a cloud management system is the best choice because everything should be online, eliminating the risks of losing all important company information. The biggest advantage is access from any digital device and from anywhere, making it easy to access information.



Cost Benefit

The implementation of a management system should not be seen as an expense, but rather as an investment for the company. The reduction that this type of system brings to the company is worth every penny spent.

How and Why To Hire Backdoor Jobs?

By Cherry Perando


It was the summer of 2011 when I first noticed the surge in Back Door Hire Placements. At first, I thought it was a simple cycle or fad that I had seen from time to time over the last 25 years of collecting Staffing and Recruiting Debt. In the ‘90s, it was a surge in IT Placements that gave me a heads up about the approaching .com implosion. In the Mid 2000s, it was a surge in Construction Companies that were being placed for collections that gave me a heads up before the Real Estate Crash.  
 
 
Then again, who could forget 2008 and 2009? In 2009 alone, we had over 4 Community Banks per week, on average, being placed for collections. In 2009, I knew when the Banks had run out of money; it was going to be a very scary year for everyone. Last year, we saw a surge in Oil Companies placed for collections, and a year later gas was cheaper than it had been in decades.  
 
 
I have learned over the years to listen to what the market is doing. It is not that I am all that smart, it is more because of the nature of our business that we typically see a crisis or downturn within industries before Main Street or The Media reports them. In my mind, it feels like the old movies when the Indian would lay his head on the ground and listen for vibrations to track buffalo. If you take a moment to listen, you will hear all you need to know about what business shift is heading your way.  
 
 
What new cycle or business shift was going on? I asked my staff to pull the numbers on all Backdoor Hire type accounts that were placed for collections over the last 12 months. To my surprise, we had a 289% increase in Backdoor Hires over the year. Hmm… like I said, I am not that smart. The fact is if I had been the Indian putting my head to the ground, I would have been stampeded by buffalo before I could get up to tell you about my great hunting abilities.  
 
 
There it was in black and white. A former business partner of mine once told me that math never lies. I was a little in shock as I dove into the data because in 25 years of tracking surges I had never seen one like this. It covered all industries and all sizes of companies: Fortune 500 Companies, Mom and Pops, and all the way down to Startups. It included hospitals, nursing homes, car dealerships, tech companies, banks, and manufacturing. Not a single industry was immune. The numbers were huge. One of the larger recruiting firms alone had placed over $1,000,000 in Backdoor Hire fees.   
 
 
Why was this new cycle running through the industry? The first thought I had was, “OMG! This is because of the last recession! Everyone is out of money, and this is how they are going to reduce cost,” but then I then looked at the companies that had been placed for collections, and most of these companies did not fit the “I am broke and surviving profile." In fact, the opposite was true; most of these companies had great credit reports and did not have many economic challenges. This made the puzzle even more confusing because in past cycles that I had watched tough economics had been the one common denominator; the industry was out of cash and in decline. This epidemic was unique though because it was not being driven by economic decline.  
 
 
For the first time in 25 years, I had witnessed a surge in Backdoor Hire placements that did not have an economic theme. Initially, the only economic theme I saw in 2014 was a 23% increase in our company's revenues. This was good news for us, but it was also good news for our clients because at least we were collecting on the debt that came in this new collection wave. That was a plus because, in some of the cycles, this was not the case. For example: in the 1990s, the .com companies were more than likely out of business when they were placed for collections. This is similar to the community banks in 2009 when over half of the banks were taken over by the Feds within 30 days of being placed for collections. So, this surge of collections was unique in a positive way as well because our clients were getting paid when they placed their former clients for collections. This was a positive effect, but it also made it more confusing.  
 
 
In 2011 and 2012 I started to dig a little deeper, and when new placements would come in I would ask our clients a few extra questions. I started calling the in-house attorneys at the large recruiting firms’ collections departments I had worked with for years, and they all noticed the same thing. Their increases in Backdoor Hires mirrored our numbers. We were now at a 410% increase over the last 24 months, and the rate was still increasing. I still could not find a common theme, but I wanted to warn the industry that I have serviced over the last 25 years. So in 2013, I wrote my first article about this "New Wave of Collections" that we were starting to see; I even taught a few webinars on the subject to try to give everyone a heads up.  
 
 
The information I received did not make sense at first, but a common theme eventually did appear. It was scarier than I could have ever imagined, but when fully processed it was equally as exciting for me and for our clients. When I realized the common underlying theme, I was also faced with the reality that this "New cycle" or this "New Surge in collections" was not new. This issue had been in the Recruiting Industry as long as the Recruiting Industry had been around.  
 
 
The rise in our Backdoor Hire epidemic matched the rise of companies like LinkedIn. So this would mean that in 2012 when I first noticed this upswing, I was not seeing anything new. What I was witnessing was technology finally catching up to the industry and it shined a light on what has been going on for years. That is, a certain percentage of your candidates were getting hired behind your back. It is ironic that a technology most said would make recruiters obsolete actually helps them collect millions of dollars they are owed in fees they would not have known existed otherwise.  
 
 

Now, what can we do with any of this knowledge? I can tell you that the story does not end in 2012 when I noticed the obvious. In fact, 2012 is the beginning of this journey, and as you read the next chapters I hope to share with you the secret to catching Backdoor Hires and being prepared in order to get paid if you do find them.

So, happy reading.


Facts About the JFK Assassination:
1.    Hunt was directly involved in the murder of JFK. And Bush supervised Hunt. Hunt was a high-ranking CIA officer, chief of the CIA’s Mexico station.
2.       In the ensuing Watergate scandal, Hunt was convicted of burglary, conspiracy, and wiretapping, eventually serving 33 months in prison.
3.       E. Howard Hunt wife, Dorothy Hunt was staunchly loyal to her husband and, after his arrest, helped him with his plans to blackmail the White House.

On December 8th, 1972, carrying $10,000 (in $100 bills) in what’s regarded as extorted hush money and, some say, evidence that could have gotten Nixon impeached, she boarded United Airlines Flight 553 from Washington to Chicago. The plane crashed, killing forty-three people onboard, including Dorothy. The official explanation was pilot error, but St. John doesn’t believe it. He thinks that the Nixon White House wanted to both get rid of his mother and send a message to his father. Nonetheless, he says he tries not to place blame.
4.      In 1973, Barry Goldwater privately telling people that he was convinced that LBJ was behind the JFK assassination.
5.      A 1975 CIA memo says a thorough search of agency records in and outside the US was conducted to determine whether Oswald, who shot Kennedy in Dallas on 22 November 1963, had been used by the agency or connected with it in “any conceivable way”. The memo said the search came up empty.

The memo also said there was also no sign that any other US agency used Oswald as a source or for recruitment.
6.      The Zapruder film that showed the moment the president was shot in the head was not released to the public in general until 12 years after the assassination. On March 6, 1975, the ABC late-night show “Good Night America” broadcast the film on television for the first time.
7.      However, another one of the newly released documents includes an excerpt of a 1975 interview with CIA Director Richard Helms for the Rockefeller Commission, established by President Ford to examine the CIA's covert activities. The document includes this question: "Is there any information involved with the assassination of President Kennedy which in any way shows that Lee Harvey Oswald was in some way a CIA agent or an agent..." But the document ends there, with the question incomplete and no answer from Helms.
8.      Chicago mobster Sam Giancana. He was a Mob Boss. He was a friend of the singer and actor Frank Sinatra and reportedly used Sinatra as a mediator with Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, who was alienating the Mafia with his relentless campaign against organized crime in America. (The mediation was apparently unsuccessful, as Robert Kennedy persuaded FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to place Giancana's home in Oak Park under 24-hour surveillance in 1963.) He was killed on June 19, 1975, at 11:30 p.m. Giancana was killed before giving testimony.
9.      In 1975, Roselli testified to the Church Committee, chaired by Senator Frank Church (officially, the “U.S. Select Committee to Study Government Operations with respect to Intelligence Activities”) that the Mob and the CIA together had attempted to kill Castro during the early 1960s. Roselli claimed the CIA hit team had been turned against Kennedy.

In 1976, the Committee recalled Roselli to testify again, but he never made it. He left his home in Florida to play golf and never arrived at the golf course. His busted body was found floating in a drum, and the hit was blamed on Santos Trafficante. In a September 1976 interview with Jack Anderson just before his murder, Roselli stated: “When Oswald was picked up, the underworld conspirators feared he would crack and disclose information that might lead to them. This almost certainly would have brought a massive U.S. crackdown on the Mafia. So Jack Ruby was ordered to eliminate Oswald.”
10.  According to MacKenzie, his contacts for the safe house were: the Mob, DISC, FBI Division Five (through Reverend Bowen), Chauncey Holt (later known as one of the “Three Tramps”) and Officer J.D. Tippit (on a few occasions). MacKenzie was told by Jake Miranda (DISC agent) that there were a couple of other safe houses in Dallas, but he never figured out where they were. In addition, says MacKenzie, some people used their homes as safe houses for the Mob and intelligence agencies, and some safe houses were run by the Dallas Police Department. Tammi True, a stripper at Ruby’s Carousel, reportedly took in covert cohorts regularly. It is not known where her house was located. At least one safe house was located in the Oak Cliff area where Officer J.D. Tippit was killed.

MacKenzie’s first clients at the safe house were three men who were brought in by “a very sleazy preacher type known as Albert Osborne,” who later called himself Reverend Bowen. John Howard Bowen was a Nazi who posed as a preacher for the American Council of Christian Churches’ (ACCC) “mission” in Mexico. MacKenzie claims he had first met Osborne in New Orleans at Guy Banister’s 544 Camp Street address. The three men Bowen brought in were either French or Corsican, and stayed at the safe house for four days. They never left the place as far as he knew. He later found out they had just made a hit in Michigan, and were cooling off before returning to a place run by the ACCC. MacKenzie states, this group “ran hit squads from somewhere south of Mexico City all over the world.”

According to Nomenclature of an Assassination Cabal by William Torbitt (The Torbitt Document), Albert Osborne (Bowen) was a Nazi sympathizer who opposed U.S. war with Germany and had a following of young Fascists in rural Tennessee. He began operating a Nazi “black shirt group” known as the “Campfire Council” in 1942. As Torbitt explains, the Campfire Council was sponsored by an “espionage cover group, the American Council of Christian Churches.” In 1943, Bowen began supervising a “nest of professional assassins” for the ACCC.

According to Torbitt, Albert Osborne’s ACCC and Division Five of the FBI “obtained the team of the world’s best Mexican riflemen through the offices of Double-Chek Corporation, an American based subsidiary of Permindex.” These assassination squads were made up of anti-communist Cubans who had sought political asylum in Mexico after Castro’s communist coup. Permindex was described by Torbitt as an FBI- and CIA-funded Swiss corporation, also funded by Centro Mondiale Comerciale (World Trade Center Corporation), which moved from Rome to Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1962. MacKenzie claims he and everyone he knew was paid by “Permindex bucks.” (d’Arc, MacKenzie interview)

According to Torbitt, among those on the JFK assassination hit team were professional assassins from Mexico, who “blended in well with some of the anti-Castro Cubans under the direction of the Free Cuba Committee, with members in Mexico City, Dallas, New Orleans, Montreal, Miami, Chicago, Kansas City and Los Angeles.” The expert shooters from Mexico were selected from 25 to 30 of the most proficient marksmen in the world. The group had been “used by espionage agencies of the U.S. and various countries all over the world for political killings over the past 25 years.”
11.  According to Roderick MacKenzie, the Holland Avenue safehouse grew a lot busier in August and September of 1963. He did not know who the clients were at the time. The month of October was quiet, but there was “not one night without a client from November 5 through November 23.”

On November 16, 1963, MacKenzie was asked to move out of his apartment and into a room at the Cabana Motel. He went by the safe house daily to clean, and it “looked like a war room for an Army.” The place was littered with maps of Cuba, Houston, Dallas, and Fort Worth, and the southwestern United States and Gulf of Mexico area. He assumed there was a Castro hit coming down. He never gave a thought to it being a hit on the President, and, in fact, he claims, no one at that time and on his level even knew Kennedy was coming to Dallas.

Around the time of the Pepsi Convention on November 21, MacKenzie says his telephone conversations with Johnny Roselli increased, and he had several personal meetings with Roselli and Miranda at Jake Miranda’s bar. At this time, he was informed by Roselli that the “cleaners” would hit the safe house on the 22nd and he was told to stay away. The cleaners, MacKenzie explains, “are sent into a situation when it has to be wiped clean of any past, and as often as not those involved in the past of the operation are terminated as well.” He began to get nervous.

On the night of November 21, the Cabana Motel was full, and MacKenzie recalls seeing a lot of old faces. It was “old-time week as far as the revolting revolutionaries and mob-connected guys and politicos went,” he writes. “It seems that someone somewhere had called a convention other than the Pepsi one, and invited every gypsy, tramp, mobster, and politician available to come.” Adding to the stress of hearing that the “cleaners” would be coming to the safe house, Roselli and Miranda called a meeting at Baylor Hospital Cafeteria on Gaston Avenue since 11:00 a.m. the next morning, November 22.

The night of the 21st was a very busy night at both the Cabana Motel and the Egyptian Lounge. It was a noisy night too, says MacKenzie, with many Spanish-speaking people hanging around in the parking lot. That night MacKenzie couldn’t sleep and wrote several letters to his frequent pen pals, among them, Sam Giancana, Del Graham, and Mitch Werbelle. He turned off his lamp several times to peer out the window. He saw Frank Sturgis go out and come back with a case of Pearl beer, a popular local beer at the time.

The next time he looked, MacKenzie saw Richard Nixon climbing out of a stretch limo. He figured it was a meeting of Nixon’s group Operation 40—a CIA-sponsored operation created by Eisenhower, which included Frank Sturgis, Felix Rodriguez, Eladio del Valle, Raphael “Chi Chi” Quintero, and other anti-Castro revolutionaries associated with the JFK assassination. Nixon was “the father of that bunch,” MacKenzie writes. According to MacKenzie, Nixon entered the room next door to his at the Cabana and stayed about a half hour. He then heard someone outside mention the Adolphus Hotel as the limo took off.

Operation 40 was a CIA undercover operation in the early 1960s created by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in March 1960 and was presided over by Vice-president Richard Nixon. The group included Frank Sturgis (who would later become one of the Watergate burglars); Felix Rodriguez (a CIA officer who later was involved in the capture and summary execution of Che Guevara); Luis Posada Carriles (held in the US in 2010 on charges of illegal immigration); Orlando Bosch (founder of the counterrevolutionary Coordination of United Revolutionary Organizations, that organized the 1976 murder of Chilean former minister Orlando Letelier);Rafael 'Chi Chi' Quintero; Virgilio Paz Romero; Pedro Luis Diaz Lanz; Bernard Barker; Porter Goss; and Barry Seal.
12.  Gaeton Fonzi was hired as a researcher in 1975 by the Church Committee and by the House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations in 1977. At the HSCA, Fonzi focused on the anti-Castro Cuban exile groups and the links that these groups had with the CIA and the Mafia. Fonzi obtained testimony from Cuban exile Antonio Veciana that Veciana had once witnessed his CIA contact, who Fonzi would later come to believe was David Atlee Phillips, conferring with Lee Harvey Oswald. Through his research, Fonzi became convinced that Phillips had played a key role in the assassination of President Kennedy. Fonzi also concluded that, as part of the assassination plot, Phillips had actively worked to embellish Oswald's image as a communist sympathizer. He further concluded that the presence of a possible Oswald impersonator in Mexico City, during the period that Oswald himself was in Mexico City, may have been orchestrated by Phillips.

Gaeton Fonzi concluded it was unlikely that the CIA would legitimately not be able to produce a single photograph of the real Oswald as part of the documentation of his trip to Mexico City, given that Oswald had made five separate visits to the Soviet and Cuban embassies where the CIA maintained surveillance cameras.
13.  Oswald's CIA handler was George De Mohrenschildt. He was an intelligence agent for the Nazis before he started working for the CIA.

On September 5, 1976, De Mohrenschildt sent a message to George H. W. Bush, who was at that time director of the CIA: "Maybe you will be able to bring a solution to the hopeless situation I find myself in. My wife and I find ourselves surrounded by some vigilantes; our phone bugged, and we are being followed everywhere. Either FBI is involved in this or they do not want to accept my complaints. We are driven to insanity by the situation.

I have been behaving like a damn fool ever since my daughter Nadya died from (cystic fibrosis) over three years ago. I tried to write, stupidly and unsuccessfully, about Lee H Oswald and must have angered a lot of people I do not know. But to punish an elderly man like myself and my highly nervous and sick wife is really too much. Could you do something to remove the surrounding net? This will be my last ask for help and I will not annoy you anymore."

Two months later George de Mohrenschildt was committed to a mental institution. According to his wife, Jeanne de Mohrenschildt, he was suffering from depression. He was taken to Parkland Hospital and underwent nine electroshock treatments.

In February 1977, Willem Oltmans met George de Mohrenschildt at the library of Bishop College in Dallas, where he taught French. Oltmans later told the House Select Committee on Assassinations: "I couldn't believe my eyes. The man had changed drastically... he was nervous, trembling. It was a scared, a very, very scared person I saw. I was absolutely shocked because I knew de Mohrenschildt as a man who wins tennis matches, who is always sustained, who jogs every morning, who is as healthy as a bull."

According to Willem Oltmans, he confessed to being involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. "I am responsible. I feel responsible for the behavior of Lee Harvey Oswald... because I guided him. I instructed him to set it up."

Oltmans claimed that de Mohrenschildt had admitted serving as a middleman between Lee Harvey Oswald and H. L. Hunt in an assassination plot involving other Texas oilmen, anti-Castro Cubans, and elements of the FBI and CIA.

Oltmans told the House Select Committee on Assassinations: "De Mohrenschildt begged me to take him out of the country because they were after him."

On February 13, 1977, Oltmans took de Mohrenschildt to his home in Amsterdam where they worked on his memoirs. Over the next few weeks, de Mohrenschildt claimed he knew Jack Ruby and argued that Texas oilmen joined with intelligence operatives to arrange the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Willem Oltman a Dutch Journalist said the Mr. De Mohrenschildt told him in Dallas that Oswald acted at his instructions, and that they had discussed the Kennedy Assassination from A to Z and that he knew that Oswald was going to kill president Kennedy sooner or later. Oltman also said that there were 4 assassins, and DeMohrenschildt also mentions an anti-Castro American by the name of Lauren Hall who was offered $50,000 dollars to take part in the assassination of President Kennedy.

In 1977, George De Mohrenschildt was found fatally shot, allegedly a suicide, on the day a House Select Committee investigator came by looking for him. His wife Jeanne consented to a press interview, where she said that George had been a Nazi spy.
14.  Frank Sturgis told the San Francisco Chronicle in a May 7, 1977, interview, "The reason we burglarized the Watergate was that Nixon was interested in stopping news leaking relating to the photos of our role in the assassination of President John Kennedy." Nixon was extremely concerned about stopping the Democrats from publishing the photos of Hunt and Sturgis under arrest for the murder of JFK.

Both E. Howard Hunt and Frank Sturgis worked for Bush on the CIA’s raids and numerous attempts to assassinate Castro. Sturgis admitted to being a spotter and that both he and Hunt shot JFK from the grassy knoll. Frank Sturgis also testified that one of the two men firing from the grassy knoll hit the President in the throat.
15.  Marita Lorenz Castro's mistress, had to flee from Cuba for her life when Castro found out she was working for the CIA trying to kill him. She testified under oath that she saw E. Howard Hunt pay off an assassination team in Dallas the night before Kennedy's murder. Clint Murchison and H.L. Hunt had provided financing for the assassination to keep the oil depletion allowance at 27.5%, which remained unchanged under LBJ.

Eyewitness Marita Lorenz testified under oath that she saw Hunt pay off an assassination team in Dallas the night before Kennedy's murder. When Marita Lorenz found out that it was a plot to kill the President, she left the hotel room and flew back to Miami.  She also testified that shortly after Hunt left, that Jack Ruby showed up, and it was then she decided to return to Miami that same night but said that Sturgis later told her about what she had missed in Dallas on November 22, 1963: "We killed the president that day."
16.  This testimony came in a suit brought by Hunt against the right-wing newsletter Spotlight for printing a 1978 article titled, "CIA to Admit Hunt Involvement in Kennedy Slaying." The jury ruled in favor of the newsletter. E. Howard Hunt also gave a deathbed confession to his son about having participated in the LBJ-approved, CIA-orchestrated murder of John F. Kennedy.

In an interview, Marita Lorenz said: "I asked Sturgis: "Jesus Christ, Frank, did you shoot the President? Did you have something to do with that?" He said, "Ah who gives a shit, ya who's going to prove it?" He said, "We kill a lot of people, what's the hell the difference? Look at what he did to the Bay of Pigs; Look at what he did, he let the Black people go and gave them all their rights. He didn't want Vietnam; they had good reasons; and then he said, I'd do it again
17.  MacKenzie was told that there was a big deal being worked out as to “how Pepsi could get their sugar costs down now that Fidel was El Politico boss in Cuba,” and there would be a bunch of people in the safe house and at the Cabana for “(of all things) the Pepsi Cola Convention.” Staying in the Cabana Motel in the very next room at the same time as MacKenzie was hitwoman, Ruth Ann Martinez. “Later she moved into the same room with Frank Sturgis and his girlfriend,” MacKenzie writes. Although she was “cordial and sexy,” Martinez was not overly friendly, as her business was “refined killings.”

Frank Sturgis’s girlfriend was Marita Lorenz, who had been Fidel Castro’s mistress while still a teenager. During a visit to Havana with her parents, the young woman had been recruited by Castro to be his “secretary,” but she was a kept woman, never allowed out of Castro’s private suite at the Havana Hilton. In fact, Castro had reportedly sent his men to fetch the teen from her New York apartment, and he raped her in her first night in Havana.

Lorenz was recruited into the CIA in 1959 by agent Frank Fiorini (Sturgis), who had aided Lorenz’s escape by posing as a Cuban guard. She returned to Miami but was later convinced by Sturgis to go back to Cuba on two secret CIA missions: first, to steal papers and maps from Castro’s Hilton room, which she accomplished unbeknownst to Castro; and second, to kill Castro with poison capsules, which (infamously) disintegrated in a jar of cold cream.

According to Lorenz, in her deposition for attorney Mark Lane’s defense of the “Liberty Lobby” in January 1985, she stayed in a “Dallas motel” on November 21, 1963, with an assassination squad with whom she had driven from Miami a few days before. The members were part of Operation 40, she told the New York Daily News on November 3, 1977, “a secret guerilla group originally formed by the CIA in 1960 for the Bay of Pigs invasion.” The group included about thirty anti-Castro Cubans and their American advisors. Lorenz claimed she had first met Oswald at an Operation 40 guerrilla training camp in a South American country circa 1961-1962, and that she knew him as “Ozzie.”

The next time she saw Ozzie, Lorenz stated, was at the home of Cuban terrorist, Orlando Bosch. In his book The Last Investigation, Gaeton Fonzi described Lorenz’s story in detail. She claimed that about a month prior to November 22, 1963, she met with this anti-Castro group at Bosch’s home in Miami. She claimed the others at the meeting were Sturgis, Ozzie, and other Cubans. She said the group studied Dallas street maps. Lorenz claims she was under the impression we were to “take another armory.” (Fonzi)

According to Lorenz, at this meeting, Sturgis spoke the word “Kennedy” aloud to Bosch, and she replied, “What about him?” That was when “Ozzie started a dispute with Frank and Bosch about my presence,” Lorenz claimed, to which she retorted, “Who needs this hostile, slimy bastard?” When Lorenz attempted to leave, she claimed, Sturgis spoke to them on her behalf. (Fonzi)

The group with whom Lorenz claimed she traveled from Miami to Dallas for the JFK hit included Frank Sturgis, Gerry Patrick Hemming, Orlando Bosch, Pedro Diaz Lanz, Guillermo Novo, Ignacio Novo, and Lee Oswald. It has been argued, however, that this could not have been the “real Oswald” since he was employed at the TSBD at this time. In addition, a fellow employee claims to have driven Lee Oswald to work on Friday, November 21, 1963, picking him up at Ruth Paine’s house in Irving, Texas, after he stayed the night with Marina. However, it’s possible that this was one of the infamous Oswald doubles.

According to Lorenz, on the first night at the motel, Sturgis waited for a “member” named Ruby and spoke to him in the parking lot. Ruby seemed surprised at Lorenz’s presence. She claims she later asked Sturgis, “Where’d you get that Mafia punk?” Sturgis replied, “You make me nervous. I made a mistake. This is too big, I want you to go back to Miami.” After a visit by E. Howard Hunt (known as “Eduardo”), who delivered a package containing cash, Sturgis and Bosch drove her to the airport.

Lorenz later claimed, “I had a feeling, a suspicion, that Frank’s group was in Texas to kill somebody, because of the secrecy of the whole thing. Never in a million years did I put two and two together, or was ever even hinted to what they were up to?” (Fonzi) Reportedly Sturgis said to her a few days later, “You should have stayed. It was safe. Everything was covered in advance. No arrests, no real newspaper investigation. It was all covered, very professional.”
18.  This interesting story might explain Rod MacKenzie’s claim that Ruth Ann Martinez later moved from her motel room into the same room with Frank Sturgis “and his girlfriend.” One wonders whether, perhaps, Martinez moved in with Sturgis after Lorenz left, taking her place in the crowded motel room, where Lorenz claimed they had slept four to a room. In her book entitled Marita, Lorenz claimed she didn’t like the secrecy of the mission and became “disgusted” with what was going on. A Vanity Fair story later proclaimed she had been unwittingly involved in the JFK assassination. (Fonzi)

It is important to note that JFK researchers and investigators have refuted much of Lorenz’s testimony; among the arguments, that Lee Oswald was in the Soviet Union from September 1959 until June 1962, and couldn’t have been at the guerilla meetings as she claimed. Gaeton Fonzi of the House Select Committee considered her testimony a “diversion,” and worse, Fonzi’s associate, Ed Lopez, stated Lorenz “gave us so much crap, and we tried to verify it, but let me tell you, she is full of shit.” (Fonzi)

On the other hand, it has been noted that “Oswald” was seen in many places at the same time, which has led researchers to presume there was more than one “Oswald.” If so, which one did Lorenz meet and did this perhaps obvious fact go over the heads of the House Select Committee?

Many researchers believe Marita Lorenz’s admissions in the newspaper story of 1977 served as a “limited hangout,” which is spy jargon for a phony cover story which plants disinformation while withholding the most damaging facts. Notwithstanding this accusation, it is true that Lorenz feared for her life in the aftermath of this news exposé, and had taken to answering the door of her Miami home with a shotgun in hand. In addition, her 13-year old daughter was apprehended with a .22 revolver in the bushes in front of the house. The reader might take a wild guess at who it was they were afraid of—indeed, Frank Sturgis was arrested in her home after going there to “talk.” (Fonzi)
19.  Thomas Mann, former ambassador to Mexico and then-assistant secretary for inter-American affairs, “still has the ‘feeling in his guts’ that (Cuban leader Fidel) Castro hired Oswald to kill Kennedy. They said, however, that the commission has not been able to get any proof of that.”
20.  In 1977, the FBI released 40,000 files pertaining to the assassination of Kennedy, including an April 3, 1967 memorandum from Deputy Director Cartha DeLoach to Associate Director Clyde Tolson that was written less than a month after President Johnson learned from J. Edgar Hoover about CIA plots to kill Fidel Castro.
21.  Fidel Castro said that neither he nor his government had any involvement in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In 1977, Castro was interviewed by journalist Bill Moyers.

Castro denied any involvement in Kennedy's death, saying:
It would have been absolute insanity by Cuba... It would have been a provocation. Needless to say, it would have been to run the risk that our country would have been destroyed by the United States. Nobody who's not insane could have thought about [killing Kennedy in retaliation].
22.  In 1978, former CIA paymaster and accountant James Wilcott testified before the HSCA, stating that Lee Harvey Oswald was a "known agent" of the Central Intelligence Agency. Wilcott and his wife, Elsie (also a former employee of the CIA) later repeated those claims in a story by the San Francisco Chronicle. Despite its official policy of neither confirming nor denying the status of agents, both the CIA itself and many officers working in the region at the time (including David Atlee Phillips) have "unofficially" dismissed the plausibility of any CIA ties to Oswald. Robert Blakey, staff director and chief counsel for the U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations supported that assessment in his conclusions as well.
23.  Jim and Elsie Wilcott, former husband and wife employees of the Tokyo CIA station, told the San Francisco Chronicle in 1978: "It was common knowledge in the Tokyo CIA station that Oswald worked for the agency... Right after the President was killed, people in the Tokyo station were talking openly about Oswald having gone to Russia for the CIA. Everyone was wondering how the agency was going to be able to keep the lid on Oswald. But I guess they did."
24.  In 1979, the House Select Committee on Assistance (HSCA) found an investigative flaw by the FBI and the Warren Commission. HSCA also concluded that there were 4 shots taken, one coming from the direction of the grassy knoll and the possibility of a conspiracy in it. However, several investigations, one of which by the National Academy of Sciences questioned the accuracy of the HSCA evidence.
25.  In 1979, after the HSCA had disbanded, Robert Groden said that four autopsy photographs showing the back of Kennedy's head were forged in order to hide a wound created by a bullet fired from a second gunman. According to Groden, a photograph of a cadaver's head was inserted over another depicting a large exit wound in the back of Kennedy's head.
26.  In 1979, the House Select Committee on Assassinations agreed to publish a report from Warren Commission critic Robert Groden, in which he named "nearly [two] dozen suspected firing points in Dealey Plaza". These sites included multiple locations in or on the roof of the Texas School Book Depository, the Dal-Tex Building, and the Dallas County Records Building, as well as the railroad overpass, a storm drain located along the north curb of Elm Street, and various spots near the Grassy Knoll.

Josiah Thompson concluded that the shots fired at the motorcade came from three locations: the Texas School Book Depository, the area around the Grassy Knoll, and the Dal-Tex Building.
27.  In 1979, the House Select Committee on Assassinations reported: "Based on Oswald's possession of the murder weapon a short time after the murder and the eyewitness identifications of Oswald as the gunman, the committee concluded that Oswald shot and killed Officer Tippit.
28.  In an interview, Loran Eugene Hall gave to the Select House Committee on Assassinations Hall admitted that "I was a radical right wing. I was a reactionary... almost every meeting that I ever went to I heard somebody plotting or talking about somebody should blow Kennedy's head off."

In April 1963, Gerry P. Hemming introduced Loran Eugene Hall to John Martino. A few days later Hall met Santo Trafficante, Sam Giancana and Johnny Roselli at a Miami Beach hotel. Hall later reported that Giancana gave Eddie Bayo $15,000 as a down payment for a raid on Cuba. Bayo claimed that two officers in the Red Army based in Cuba wanted to defect to the United States. Bayo added that these men wanted to pass on details about atomic warheads and missiles that were still in Cuba despite the agreement that followed the Cuban Missile Crisis.

In June 1963, a small group, including Eddie Bayo, John Martino, William Pawley, Rip Robertson, and Richard Billings, a journalist working for Life Magazine, secretly arrived in Cuba. They were unsuccessful in their attempts to find these Soviet officers and they were forced to return to Miami. Bayo remained behind and it was rumored that he had been captured and executed. However, his death was never reported in the Cuban press. Larry Hancock, argues in his book, Someone Would Have Talked, that there were uncorroborated reports that Bayo did return and was seen in Florida in the months following Operation Tilt. John Martino later told Gerry P. Hemming that the assassination of Fidel Castro was the real object of the Bayo-Pawley operation. When interviewed by the Select House Committee on Assassinations Hall admitted that he carried out missions against Cuba on behalf of the CIA with Rip Robertson in 1963.

On 25th September 1963, a Cuban exile, Silvia Odio had a visit from three men who claimed they were from New Orleans. Two of the men, Leopoldo and Angelo, said they were members of the Junta Revolucionaria. The third man, Leon, was introduced as an American sympathizer who was willing to take part in the assassination of Fidel Castro. After she told them that she was unwilling to get involved in any criminal activity, the three men left.

Silvia Odio discovered after the assassination of John F. Kennedy that Leon was Lee Harvey Oswald. Odio gave evidence to the Warren Commission and one of its lawyers commented: "Silvia Odio was checked out thoroughly... The evidence is unanimously favorable... Odio is the most significant witness linking Oswald to the anti-Castro Cubans."

On 16th September 1964, FBI agent Leon Brown interviewed Loran Hall on behalf of the Warren Commission. Brown claims that Hall admitted that he, Lawrence Howard and William Seymour made a visit to a woman who could have been Silvia Odio. However, when Hall was re-interviewed on 20th September and was shown a photograph of Odio, he claimed she was not the woman he met in New Orleans.

The FBI interviewed Silvia Odio again on 1st October 1964. They showed her photographs of Loran Hall, William Seymour, Lawrence Howard, and Celio Castro Alga. She claimed that " none of these individuals were identified with the three persons... who had come to her apartment in Dallas in the last week of September 1963." Her sister, Annie Odio, who was also in the apartment at the time, also stated that "none of the photographs appeared similar to the three individuals in her recollection."

The author, Anthony Summers, suggests that the visit had "been a deliberate ploy to link Junta Revolucionaria, a left-wing exile group, with the assassination". Hall later gave evidence before the Select House Committee on Assassinations and denied he had told the FBI that he had visited Odio on 25th September 1963.

In 1975 Harry Dean claimed he had been an undercover agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In 1962 he infiltrated the John Birch Society. He later reported that General Edwin Walker and John Rousselot had hired two gunmen, Hall, and Eladio del Valle, to kill President John F. Kennedy. However, Dean was unable to provide any evidence to back up his claim.

Hall denied that he been involved in the assassination. However, in an interview he gave to The Dallas Morning News (17th September 1978), he was approached by right-wing activists working with CIA operatives, who wanted him to join the conspiracy to kill John F. Kennedy. According to Hall, he refused the contract.

In an interview with Alan J. Weberman in April 1977, about Gerry P. Hemming, Hall stated that "Hemming is a CIA punk, OK? I've known the SOB for fourteen years. He turned his own goddam crews in so he wouldn't have to go to Cuba. He's fingered me on my own goddam deals and caused me to get arrested... Hey. man. Right as it stands now, there's only two of us left alive - that's me and Santos Trafficante. And as far as I'm concerned we're both going to stay alive - because I ain't gonna say shit."

David Kaiser uses this evidence in his book, The Road to Dallas, to link Hall and Santos Trafficante to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. However, during his testimony to the Select House Committee on Assassinations in May 1977, Hall makes it clear that he is referring to the Bayo-Pawley raid rather than the killing of Kennedy.

It was reported by Lee Hancock in The Dallas Morning News on 13th September, 1989, that "A federal drug conspiracy indictment handed down in Tulsa in July names Loran Eugene Hall Sr., 59; his daughter, Barbara Ann Marteney, 34, of Mesquite; and his sons, Michael Stephen Hall, 36, of Burns, Kan., and Loran Eugene Hall Jr., 34, of Derby, Kan.; and two other Kansas residents. The indictment charges that the elder Mr. Hall led the ring, which manufactured methamphetamine between October 1987 and February 1989. Loran Hall Jr. and Michael Hall pleaded guilty Monday. Their father and sister remain at large."

During the trial of Loran Eugene Hall Jr., he claimed that a methamphetamine ring based in Mesquite was set up by a CIA operative to funnel money to the Contras in Nicaragua. Jim Heflet, a Tulsa attorney representing Hall, said that his client believes the operation was a CIA front. "It may be true. There's quite an extensive history on his father's CIA involvement," Heflet said. "My client told me that a lot of his dad's involvement - specifically in the Kennedy assassination - has been sealed up, and we never may find out what it was."

Loran Hall died in Newton, Kansas, in April 1995.
29.  In a 1980 legal case, G. Gordan Liddy testified that there even came a time during the Nixon presidency “when I felt I might well receive” instructions to kill E. Howard Hunt  adding, “I was ready, should I receive those orders, to carry them out immediately.
30.  On August 9, 1984, Billie Sol Estes' lawyer, Douglas Caddy, wrote to Stephen S. Trott at the US Department of Justice. In the letter Caddy claimed that Billie Sol Estes, Lyndon B. Johnson, Mac Wallace, and Cliff Carter had been involved in the murders of Henry Marshall, George Krutilek, Harold Orr, Ike Rogers, Coleman Wade, Josefa Johnson, John Kinser, and John F. Kennedy.

Caddy added: "Mr. Estes is willing to testify that LBJ ordered these killings and that he transmitted his orders through Cliff Carter to Mac Wallace, who executed the murders.”

Malcolm Wallace, who was on LBJ's staff, was also at the Murchison house the night before the assassination. He was a "hitman" and an expert marksman who had murdered as many as 18 or 19 people for Lyndon Johnson, according to the testimony of Johnson's mistress, Madeleine Duncan Brown.

There was one unidentified fingerprint at the time of the initial investigation of the sixth-floor Texas School Book Depository. Finally, in 1998, this fingerprint was identified as belonging to Malcolm Wallace.
31.  Under the law, all government files related to the assassination must be released, in full, within 25 years of the law's passage but some documents from the Kennedy assassination could damage national security. So the U.S. the government under pressure from the CIA, the FBI, and the Secret Service, did not allow some documents from the Kennedy assassination to be known by the American public.
32.  In 1991, Sam Giancana’s memoirs were published in a book called Double Cross which named Roscoe White as Tippit’s killer.

"The CIA had selected White and Tippit (sent in separate cars, with Billy Seymour lying down in the backseat of Roscoe White’s vehicle to keep from being spotted)… Under the guise of self-defense and in the line of duty they were to murder the ‘lone gunman.’  However, Tippit had wavered…allowing Oswald to escape.  Thus, White "had been forced to kill his partner." – Sam Giancana and Chuck Giancana, Double Cross, 1991.
33.  Billy Seymour is Oswald lookalike.

In mid-to-late September the assassination group decided to make Oswald the patsy in the murder. They had discussed the need for a patsy in the earliest meetings in New Orleans. Billy Seymour, who resembled Oswald, was selected to use Oswald’s name and to plant evidence in New Orleans, Dallas and Mexico, which could later be used to frame him.’ – Richard E. Sprague, The Taking of America 1-2-3, 1976.

‘The most important evidence showing that Seymour and another one of the assassination team shot Tippit is the fact that six witnesses, ignored by the Warren Commission, saw two men shoot Tippit. One of them resembled Oswald. (The other was CIA man, Roscoe White, according to Sam Giancana’s memoirs.) They ran away from the scene in opposite directions. Seymour ran toward the Texas Theater, throwing the planted shells up in the air so that witnesses would see and recover them. The other assassin ran in the opposite direction. There is some sign that Seymour entered the theater in a way to draw attention and then left before the Oswald arrest. While the shells recovered were found to match Oswald’s pistol, none of the bullets recovered from Tippit’s body matched.‘ – Richard E. Sprague, The Taking of America 1-2-3, 1976.

There are many reports that the CIA had at least one, if not more, Lee Harvey Oswald impostors roaming the streets planting implicating evidence in the re-framing of the eventual JFK assassination patsy. The Oswald impostor(s) were all over the place before the JFK assassination making spectacles of themselves (as planned by David Atlee Phillips and co.) so that people would consciously remember ‘that wacko Oswald guy’ after the JFK assassination. William ‘Billy’ Seymour was one of such impostors with Charles Rogers also pitching in when necessary.

One Oswald impostor was seen shooting at other people’s targets at a Dallas firing range while yelling and starting trouble. One phony Oswald test drove new cars and bragged about how great life in Russia was. One was picked up as a hitchhiker near Dealey Plaza and started a conversation with the driver about shooting people with rifles out of the blue. After Officer J.D. Tippit was shot, Oswald impostor Seymour conspicuously threw several shells in the air and ran from the scene to lead witnesses and police to the Texas Theater where the real Lee Harvey Oswald had gone per his instructions.

James W. Douglass, the author of JFK and the Unspeakable, recounted the tales of Texas Theater concession stand operator, Butch Burroughs, and adjacent business owner, Bernard J. Haire, ‘they saw an Oswald double arrested and taken to a police car in the back alley only minutes after the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald.’ Burroughs described ‘an Oswald lookalike,’ who, ‘looked almost like Oswald, like he was his brother or something.
34.  “Mrs. Ruby Henderson, saw two men standing back from a window on one of the upper floors of the Book Depository… one of the men “had dark hair… a darker complexion than the other.” At the time, it occurred to her that he might have been a Mexican… Mrs. Henderson saw the two men less than six minutes before the assassination.” – Anthony Summers, Conspiracy, 1991.
35.  Attorney Craig Zirbel has self-published two books on the subject, "The Texas Connection" in 1991 and "The Final Chapter on the Assassination of John F. Kennedy" in 2010. The well-received by some people criticized by others - typical of the contentious and eccentric world of Kennedy conspiracy theorists. He maintains there was a "Texas connection" in the Kennedy assassination.

Zirbel said that Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson and his group were behind JFK's murder because Johnson was the only person who had a motive to order the murder of JFK.

For political reasons, Johnson would have to wait a long time if he wanted to become President. He saw an opportunity when JFK decided to visit Texas. Johnson was from the state, and he arranged most of the travel details.

He is certainly aware that if all is according to planning, he will become President and can deter all investigations. Interestingly, Jackie Kennedy also considered this conspiracy theory to be true.
36.  After the assassination witnesses reported seeing Oswald picked up by a ‘negro’ in a station wagon which belonged to Ruth Paine, Oswald’s landlady, and CIA-affiliated babysitter.  This was David Sanchez Morales picking the real Oswald up to drop him off at his other Dallas rooming house so that he might be killed there by conspirators Roscoe White, J.D. Tippit, and Billy Seymour.
37.   Oliver Stone’s movie, JFK, was released in North America in December 1991. Oliver Stone's conspiracies film "JFK" "successfully popularized a version of Kennedy's assassination that featured U.S. government agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the military as conspirators," according to Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB), which was appointed because of the furor stoked by Stone's movie.

In 2003, the actor Kevin Costner, who had played a JFK-assassination-obsessed DA in the Oliver Stone film JFK and had become somewhat obsessed himself. Costner said that he could arrange for E. Howard Hunt to make $5 million for telling the truth about what happened in Dallas. Unbeknown to St. John, however, Costner had already met with E. Howard once. That meeting didn’t go very well. When Costner arrived at the house, he didn’t ease into the subject. “So who killed Kennedy?” he blurted out. “I mean, who did shoot JFK, Mr. Hunt?”

E. Howard’s mouth fell open, and he looked at his wife. “What did he say?” “Howard,” Laura said, “he wants to know who shot JFK.” And that ended that meeting, with E. Howard grumbling to himself about Costner, “What a numskull.”

Afterward, another meeting was arranged with Costner, this time in Los Angeles, where the actor had fifty assassination-related questions all ready to go. (The actor declined comment for this article.) Though the $5 million figure was still floating around, all Costner wanted to pay E. Howard at this point was $100 a day for his time. There would be no advance. St. John called Costner.

“That’s your offer? A hundred dollars? That’s an insult. You’re a cheapskate.”

“Nobody calls me a cheapskate,” said Costner. “What do you think I’m going to do, just hand over $5 million?”

“No. But the flight alone could kill him. He’s deaf as a brick. He’s pissing in a bag. He’s got one leg. You want him to fly to Los Angeles and for $100 a day? Wow! What are we going to do with all that money?!”

“I can’t talk to you anymore, St. John,” Costner said. And that was the end of that, for good. It looked like what E. Howard had to say would never get out.
38.   Col. L. Fletcher Prouty: This career military man served as chief of Pentagon special operations in 1963. He believed that there had been a plot against JFK among enemies of his policies in the national security agencies. Prouty was the basis for the character “Colonel X” in Oliver Stone’s “JFK.”
39.   One of Oliver Stone's key conspirators in JFK is New Orleans private investigator and former FBI agent Guy Banister, portrayed by Ed Asner.

According to Stone:
1. Banister was working for the CIA, manipulating Lee Harvey Oswald for the conspirators, and also had ties to the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI).
2. Banister participated in "Operation Mongoose," one of the CIA's projects targeting the overthrow and elimination of Fidel Castro.
3. Banister was running a training camp for Cuban exiles, where Stone also places Oswald and David Ferrie.
4. Banister was a gunrunner, whose office was part of a CIA-linked "supply line that ran from Dallas, through New Orleans to Miami, stockpiling arms and explosives."
40.   A former bodyguard of JFK called Oliver Stone, JFK's film director. He said that the JFK killing involved people in the JFK circle.

He calls the nickname of JFK's killer as Ron. This man only explained, someone from his team killed JFK on November 22, 1963. "Someone from our team shot the president," he told Stone.
41.  President John F. Kennedy was murdered by the Secret Service Agent who drove his car in the motorcade and the act are plainly visible in the film. WATCH THE DRIVER AND NOT KENNEDY WHEN YOU VIEW THE FILM. All the witnesses who were close enough to the car to see William Greer shoot Kennedy were themselves all murdered within two years of the event.
42.  Mortal Error: The Shot That Killed JFK is a 1992 non-fiction book by Bonar Menninger outlining a theory by sharpshooter, gunsmith and ballistics expert Howard Donahue that a Secret Service agent fired the shot that actually killed President John F. Kennedy. Mortal Error was published by St Martin's Press in hardback, paperback, and audiobook.

Conducting his own investigation, Donahue eventually decided that the bullet that struck Kennedy in the head had in fact been fired by the United States Secret Service Special Agent George Warren Hickey Jr. (March 24, 1923, to February 25, 2005) from an AR-15 rifle carried in the car immediately following the President's vehicle. The series of events is as follows: After the first shot which hit the street was fired, Hickey turns completely around and acquires Oswald on the sixth floor of the school book depository building. His turned head is documented in an AP photograph by James Altgens. Hickey reaches for the AR-15 under the seat, releases the safety and begins to lift the gun. The second shot is fired by Oswald, hitting the president and Texas Governor John Connally. The president's car and the follow-up car containing Hickey suddenly speed up. This is attested to by Secret Service agent Clint Hill. Agent Hickey, who is unstable because he is standing on the cushion of the seat, rather than the floor of the car, begins to fall back due to the acceleration of the vehicle, pulling the trigger of the AR-15. The gun is pointed toward Kennedy at that instant, and the bullet strikes him squarely in the back of the head.
43.  In 1993, Rodney Stich’s book “Defrauding America” it tells of a “deep-cover CIA officer” assigned to a counter-intelligence unit, code-named Pegasus. This unit “had tape-recordings of plans to assassinate John F. Kennedy” from a wiretap which had been placed on the phone of J. Edgar Hoover. The people on the tapes were Nelson Rockefeller, Allen Dulles, Lyndon Johnson, George Bush, and J. Edgar Hoover.

There are several tapes because Hoover never realized that his phone had been tapped. Nelson Rockefeller asked J. Edgar Hoover: “Are we going to have any problems?” And he said, No, we aren’t going to have any problems. I checked with Dulles. If they do their job we’ll do our job.”

Hoover also told Rockefeller that they plan to do the job in one of the next three cities that he visits, and if Dulles (former the head of the CIA) does his job of (killing Kennedy), Hoover and the FBI will do their job of covering it up!
44.  David Sanchez Morales was a CIA man of many places and many faces. He was of Mexican and Native American descent and could pass himself off as someone from many ethnic groups.

After making a name for himself in assisting in CIA backed coup efforts in Guatemala and Venezuela, Mr. Sanchez Morales moved to the Miami area to work on the CIA’s efforts to overthrow Fidel Castro from Cuba.

Sanchez Morales and the CIA trained many Cuban exiles for the failed 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion.

‘That no good son of a bitch motherf*****!’ He started yelling about what a wimp Kennedy was and talking about how he had worked on the Bay of Pigs and how he had to watch all the men he had recruited and trained get wiped out because of Kennedy… he added: “Well, we took care of that son of a bitch, didn’t we?” – David Sanchez Morales friend Ruben Carbajal, Gaeton Fonzi, The Last Investigation, 1993.

Morales meets the description of the dark-skinned Latin that Air Force Sgt. Robert G. Vinson saw boarding his flight along with Oswald impostor, Billy Seymour, in the hours after the JFK assassination.

Moments prior to the JFK assassination, ‘an elderly negro’ (likely dark complexioned David Sanchez Morales) was seen on the 6th Floor of the Texas School Book Depository with a rifle by witnesses Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Rowland.

After the assassination witnesses reported seeing Oswald picked up by a ‘negro’ in a station wagon which belonged to Ruth Paine, Oswald’s landlady, and CIA-affiliated babysitter.  This was David Sanchez Morales picking the real Oswald up to drop him off at his other Dallas rooming house so that he might be killed there by conspirators Roscoe White, J.D. Tippit, and Billy Seymour.
45.  "She had seen Roscoe near the fence soon after the shots were fired. And, he saw her. Maybe that’s why she never heard from the police." – witness Beverly Oliver, Nightmare in Dallas, 1994.
46.  Evelyn Lincoln President Kennedy's Secretary said this in 1994, "As far as the assassination is concerned it is my belief that there was a conspiracy because there were those that disliked him and felt the only way to get rid of him was to assassinate him. These five conspirators, in my opinion, were Lyndon B. Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, the Mafia, the CIA, and the Cubans in Florida."
47.  The History Channel from 1995 to 2008 had made a 9 part series called "THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY." And the last segment was called "THE GUILTY MEN," and the History Channel aired this very popular segment a few times, which detailed, LBJ's, the CIA's, Mafia, and the Cuban connection, but because of pressure from the government, they had to take it off the air. But you can still watch this program on YouTube.
48.  In 1997, a book titled “The Men on the Sixth Floor,” by Glen Sample and Mark Collom, Loy Factor tells a story that Malcolm Everett "MacWallace (Mac Wallace) approached him because of his ability as a marksman and offered him ten thousand dollars if he would do an unspecified “job” for him and his people, two thousand payable up front, and eight thousand when the job was done. A deal was struck, and a few days before the assassination a young Hispanic woman of around twenty named Ruth Ann Martinez, accompanied by a young Hispanic man drove him to a house in Dallas, where Mac Wallace the group leader was already present. For a few days, the group discussed their plan to kill Kennedy while Factor sat idly by. Two other people arrived at the home to set in on some of the planning sessions, Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald.

Just before the assassination Ruth Ann drove Loy Factor to the Book Depository Building and led him up the stairwell to the sixth floor, where Mac Wallace and Oswald already were. Factor was given a rifle, and Mac Wallace told him that if he and Oswald missed, he would be the backup. They would want him if they missed shooting the President, but he told them that he couldn’t do it. Nevertheless, Factor was told to go to the southwestern most window on the sixth floor. Wallace was two windows to the east, and Oswald was at the sniper’s nest window at the southeasternmost corner. Ruth Ann was on the walkie-talkie communicating with other shooters, presumably located on the grassy knoll, and gave a countdown to Factor, Wallace, and Oswald, signaling them when to fire. But Factor said that although he “ejected a shell from the rifle,” he did not fire it.

Following the shooting, Factor said that he and Ruth Ann fled down the stairs and she dropped Factor off at the Greyhound bus depot. But before she did, even though he hadn’t done what he was paid to do, Ruth Ann still gave him his eight thousand dollars. An hour or so latter while he was still waiting for a bus out of town, Ruth Ann came back to the bus station with Mac Wallace. “They said they had to get out of town, cause things were too hot to be set in a bus station.”
49.  Loy Factor was a Chickasaw Indian who served a 44 year sentence for murder. Just before he died he confessed to the murder of John F. Kennedy. Factor told Mark Collum and Glen Sample that he was one of three gunmen in the Texas School Book Depository. Lee Harvey Oswald, Malcolm Wallace and Ruth Ann, a Hispanic woman, also took part in the assassination.
Ruth Ann carried a walkie-talkie with which she communicated with other unknown individuals. The account was first published in the book The Men on the Sixth Floor (1995).
50.  Former KGB archivist Vasili Mitrokhin indicated in 1999, that Hunt was made part of a fabricated conspiracy theory disseminated by a Soviet "active measures" program designed to discredit the CIA and the United States.
51.   A former Nazi SS officer Helmet Streikher who worked for the CIA and served under the former director of the CIA George H.W. Bush said this: “One of the worst-kept secrets in the [CIA], is the truth about the president’s murder. It wasn’t Castro or the Russians. The men who killed Mr. Kennedy were CIA contract agents. John Kennedy’s murder was a two-part conspiracy murder. One was the action end with the killers; the other was the deeper part, the acceptance and protection of that murder by the intelligence apparatus that controls the way the world operates. It had to happen. The man was too independent for his own good.”
52.  In a 2001 article in the journal Science & Justice, D.B. Thomas wrote that the NAS investigation was itself flawed. He concluded with a 96.3 percent certainty that there were at least two gunmen firing at President Kennedy and that at least one shot came from the grassy knoll.
53.  A former CIA agent and Watergate conspirator Everette Howard Hunt Jr. had a "deathbed confession" where he names the men who killed Kennedy. Hunt alleges on the tape that then Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was involved in the planning and cover-up of the assassination, stating that LBJ, "Had an almost maniacal urge to become president, and he regarded JFK as an obstacle to achieving that."
54.  In August 2003, while in failing health, E. Howard Hunt allegedly confessed to the sons of his knowledge of a conspiracy in the JFK assassination. However, Hunt's health improved, and he went on to live for four more years.

Shortly before Hunt's death in 2007, he authored an autobiography which implicated Lyndon B. Johnson in the assassination, suggesting that Johnson had orchestrated the killing with the help of CIA agents who had been angered by Kennedy's actions as President.

Before his death in 2007, longtime CIA Spook and convicted Watergate burglar, E. Howard Hunt recalled a ‘French Gunman Grassy Knoll’ in his own personal, hierarchical, chart of fellow JFK assassination conspirators.

After Hunt's death, his sons, Saint John Hunt and David Hunt, stated that their father had recorded several claims about himself and others being involved in a conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.

In the April 5, 2007, issue of Rolling Stone, Saint John Hunt detailed a number of individuals purported to be implicated by his father, including Lyndon B. Johnson, Cord Meyer, David Phillips, Frank Sturgis, David Morales, Antonio Veciana, William Harvey, and an assassin he termed "the French gunman grassy knoll" who some presume was Lucien Sarti.

E. Howard scribbled the initials “LBJ,” standing for Kennedy’s ambitious vice president, Lyndon Johnson. Under “LBJ,” connected by a line, he wrote the name Cord Meyer. Meyer was a CIA agent whose wife had an affair with JFK; later she was murdered, a case that’s never been solved. Next his father connected to Meyer’s name the name Bill Harvey, another CIA agent; also connected to Meyer’s name was the name David Morales, yet another CIA man and a well-known, particularly vicious black-op specialist. And then his father connected to Morales’ name, with a line, the framed words “French Gunman Grassy Knoll.”

So there it was, according to E. Howard Hunt. LBJ had Kennedy killed. It had long been speculated upon. But now E. Howard was saying that’s the way it was. And that Lee Harvey Oswald wasn’t the only shooter in Dallas. There was also, on the grassy knoll, a French gunman, presumably the Corsican Mafia assassin Lucien Sarti, who has figured prominently in other assassination theories.

“By the time he handed me the paper, I was in a state of shock,” Saint says. “His whole life, to me and everybody else, he’d always professed to not know anything about any of it. But I knew this had to be the truth. If my dad was going to make anything up, he would have made something up about the Mafia, or Castro, or Khrushchev. He didn’t like Johnson. But you don’t falsely implicate your own country, for Christ’s sake. My father is old-school, a dyed-in-the-wool patriot, and that’s the last thing he would do.”

Later that week, E. Howard also gave Saint two sheets of paper that contained a fuller narrative. It starts out with LBJ again, connecting him to Cord Meyer, then goes on: “Cord Meyer discusses a plot with [David Atlee] Phillips who brings in Wm. Harvey and Antonio Veciana. He meets with Oswald in Mexico City…. Then Veciana meets with Frank Sturgis in Miami and enlists David Morales in anticipation of killing JFK there. But LBJ changes itinerary to Dallas, citing personal reasons.”

David Atlee Phillips, the CIA’s Cuban operations chief in Miami at the time of JFK’s death, knew E. Howard from the Guatemala’ coup days. Veciana is a member of the Cuban exile community. Sturgis, like Saint’s father, is supposed to have been one of the three tramps photographed in Dealey Plaza. Sturgis was also one of the Watergate plotters, and he is a man whom E. Howard, under oath, has repeatedly sworn to have not met until Watergate, so to Saint the mention of his name was big news.

In the next few paragraphs, E. Howard goes on to describe the extent of his own involvement. It revolves around a meeting he claims he attended, in 1963, with Morales and Sturgis. It takes place in a Miami hotel room.

Here’s what happens:
Morales leaves the room, at which point Sturgis makes reference to a “Big Event” and asks E. Howard, “Are you with us?”

E. Howard asks Sturgis what he’s talking about. Sturgis says, “Killing JFK.” E. Howard, “incredulous,” says to Sturgis, “You seem to have everything you need. Why do you need me?” In the handwritten narrative, Sturgis’ response is unclear, though what E. Howard says to Sturgis next isn’t: He says he won’t “get involved in anything involving Bill Harvey, who is an alcoholic psycho.”

After that, the meeting ends. E. Howard goes back to his “normal” life and “like the rest of the country… is stunned by JFK’s death and realizes how lucky he is not to have had a direct role.”

After reading what his father had written, St. John was stunned too. His father had not only implicated LBJ, he’d also, with a few swift marks of a pen, put the lie to almost everything he’d sworn to, under oath, about his knowledge of the assassination. Saint had a million more questions. But his father was exhausted and needed to sleep, and then Saint had to leave town without finishing their talk, though a few weeks later he did receive in the mail a tape recording from his dad.

E. Howard’s voice on the cassette is weak and grasping, and he sometimes wanders down unrelated pathways. But he essentially remakes the same points he made in his handwritten narrative.

Shortly thereafter, Laura found out what had been going on, and with the help of E. Howard’s attorney put an end to it. St. John and his father were kept apart. When they did see each other, they were never left alone. And they never got a chance to finish what they’d started. Instead, the old man set about writing his autobiography and turned his back on his son. He wrote him a letter in which he said that Saint’s life had been nothing but “meaningless, self-serving instant gratification,” that he had never amounted to anything and never would. He asked for his JFK memos back, and Saint returned them, though not before making copies.

There is no way to confirm Hunt’s allegations – all but one of the co-conspirators he named are long gone. St. John, for his part, believes his father. E. Howard was lucid when he made his confession. He was taking no serious medications, and he and his son were finally on good terms. If anything, St. John believes, his father was holding out on him, the old spy keeping a few secrets in reserve, just in case.

The two sons alleged that their father cut the information from his memoirs to avoid possible perjury charges. According to Hunt's widow and other children, the two sons took advantage of Hunt's loss of lucidity by coaching and exploiting him for financial gain. The Los Angeles Times said they examined the materials offered by the sons to support the story and found them to be "inconclusive."
55.  St. John Hunt explains how he first came to suspect that his father might somehow be involved in the Kennedy assassination. “Around 1975, I was in a phone booth in Maryland somewhere, when I saw a poster on a telephone pole about who killed JFK, and it had a picture of the three tramps. I saw that picture and I fucking – like a cartoon character, my jaw dropped, my eyes popped out of my head, and smoke came out of my ears. It looks like my dad. There’s nobody that has all those same facial features. People say it’s not him. He’s said it’s not him. But I’m his son, and I’ve got a gut feeling.”

He chews his sandwich. “And then, like an epiphany, I remember ’63, and my dad being gone, and my mom telling me that he was on a business trip to Dallas. I’ve tried to convince myself that’s some kind of false memory, that I’m just nuts, that it’s something I heard years later. But, I mean, his alibi for that day is that he was at home with his family. I remember I was in the fifth grade. We were at recess. I was playing on the merry-go-round. We were called in and told to go home, because the president had been killed. And I remember going home. But I don’t remember my dad being there. I have no recollection of him being there. And then he has this whole thing about shopping for Chinese food with my mother that day, so that they could cook a meal together.” His father testified to this, in court, on more than one occasion, saying that he and his wife often cooked meals together.

St. John pauses and leans forward. “Well,” he says, “I can tell you that’s just the biggest load of crap in the fucking world. He was always looking at things like he was writing a novel; everything had to be just so glamorous and so exciting. He couldn’t even be bothered with his children. That’s not glamorous. James Bond doesn’t have children. So my dad in the kitchen? Chopping vegetables with his wife? I’m so sorry, but that would never happen. Ever. That fucker never did jack-squat like that. Ever.”

Not that it was all bad back then, in Potomac, at Witches Island. E. Howard played the trumpet, and his son was into music too, so sometimes the pair went down to Blues Alley, in Georgetown, to hear jazz. Back home, E. Howard would slap Benny Goodman’s monster swing-jazz song “Sing, Sing, Sing” on the turntable, and the two would listen to it endlessly. And then, sometimes, during the stomping Harry James horn solo, E. Howard would jump to his feet, snapping his fingers like some cool cat, pull back his shirt sleeves, lick his lips and play the air trumpet for all he was worth. It was great stuff, and St. John loved it. “I would sit there in awe,” he says. But the best was yet to come.

It was well past midnight on June 18th, 1972. Saint, eighteen years old, was asleep in his basement bedroom, surrounded by his Beatles and Playboy pinup posters, when he heard someone shouting, “You gotta wake up! You gotta wake up!”

When he opened his eyes, Saint saw his father as he’d never seen him before. E. Howard was dressed in his usual coat and tie, but everything was akimbo. He was a sweaty, disheveled mess. Saint didn’t know what to think or what was going on.

“I don’t need you to ask a lot of questions,” his father said. “I need you to get your clothes on and come upstairs.”

He disappeared into the darkness. Saint changed out of his pajamas. Upstairs, he found his father in the master bedroom, laboring over a big green suitcase jumble-filled with microphones, walkie-talkies, cameras, tripods, cords, wires, lots of weird stuff. His father started giving him instructions. Saint went to the kitchen and returned with Windex, paper towels and some rubber dishwashing gloves. Then, in silence, the two of them began wiping fingerprints off all the junk in the suitcase. After that, they loaded everything into E. Howard’s Pontiac Firebird and drove over to a lock on the C&O Canal. E. Howard heaved the suitcase into the water, and it gurgled out of sight.

They didn’t speak on the way home. St. John still didn’t know what was going on. All he knew was that his dad had needed his help, and he’d given it, successfully.

The next day, dressed in one of his prep-school blazers, he drove to a Riggs Bank in Georgetown and met his father inside the safety-deposit-box cage. His father turned him around, lifted his blazer and shoved about $100,000 in cash down the back of his pants. The boy made it home without picking up a tail. Then his father had him get rid of a typewriter. Saint put the typewriter in a bag, hoofed it across the Witches Island property onto the neighboring spread and tossed it into the pond where he and his brother David used to go fishing.

“Don’t ever tell anybody you’ve done these things,” his father said later. “I could get in trouble. You could get in trouble. I’m sorry to have to put you in this position, but I really am grateful for your help.”

“Of course, Papa,” Saint said. Everything he had done, he’d done because his father and his gang of pals had botched the break-in at the Watergate Hotel. Soon his mother would be killed in a plane crash, and his father would be sent to jail, and Nixon would resign, and his own life would fracture in unimaginable ways. But right now, standing there with his father and hearing those words of praise, he was the happiest he’d ever been.
56.  In 2005, Thomas's conclusions were rebutted in the same journal. Ralph Linsker and several members of the original NAS team reanalyzed the timings of the recordings and reaffirmed the earlier conclusion of the NAS report that the alleged shot sounds were recorded about one minute after the assassination.
57.  CIA station chief Winston Scott was the respected chief of the CIA’s station in Mexico City at the time of Kennedy’s murder. A conservative Agency loyalist, he later wrote an unpublished memoir in which he said the Warren Commission’s findings of CIA surveillance of the accused assassin Lee Oswald in Mexico City were false. He knew it was false because he had been in charge of watching Oswald.

In the memoir, Scott wrote that there was “no serious investigation” of Oswald’s communist connections and concluded JFK was probably killed by a conspiracy.
58.  In 2008, a book titled “Legacy of Secrecy:” The Long Shadow of the JFK Assassination written by Lamar Waldron. Carlos Marcello from the New Orleans mafia admits to having JFK killed. The book cites a testimony from Marcello where he said “Yeah, I had the son of a bitch killed. I’m glad I did. I’m sorry I couldn’t have done it myself.” It seems that Marcello does not care who knows that he helps orchestrate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The former mobster boss also claims that he knew Jack Ruby, and he had him kill Lee Harvey Oswald.
59.  In 2010, D.B. Thomas challenged the 2005 Science & Justice article and restated his conclusion that there were at least two gunmen.
60.  Jackie Kennedy in her oral history recordings believed Lyndon Baines Johnson was involved in her husband's murder. Her daughter Caroline has decided to release her mother's tapes to ABC News in 2011.
61.  In 2015, after 52 years of silence, Roy Edward Lewis a 69-year-old eyewitness of the JFK assassination and a former employee of the Texas Schoolbook Depository; finally got a chance to tell his story to the American people on a radio show called the “Real Deal,” hosted by James H Fetzer. 

No one had ever taken the time or made the effort to track Roy Lewis down, to interview him about what he had seen and heard while standing on the front steps of the Texas School Book Depository, as President John F. Kennedy’s limousine passed by, on November 22, 1963.

Roy had never been asked to testify, nor had he read the Warren Report or any of the information contained in the 26 volumes of exhibits and hearings. He never read any books about the Kennedy Assassination, nor was he interested in the aftermath of the assassination of President Kennedy.

Nor had Roy ever been shown enlarged pictures of himself standing on the front steps of the School Book Depository. When shown these blown up pictures, he identified himself as being the Afro-American man standing on the first step, and though he could not remember if Lee Harvey Oswald was standing behind him, immediately when he saw the picture he confirmed positively: “that it looks like him!”  

When Roy Lewis was asked if he thought that it could have been Billy Lovelady standing behind him instead of Oswald? Roy Lewis said that he knew Billy Lovelady very well and he had even purchased a car from him; and that Lovelady was heaver, shorter, and he was almost completely bold. Roy said that he couldn't understand why or how anyone could confuse Billy Lovelady for Lee Oswald, these two guys don't even look alike.
62.  In April 2016, the National Enquirer ran a story in April 2016 suggesting that Ted Cruz's father, Rafael Bienvenido Cruz, knew alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and worked with Oswald in New Orleans a few months before the assassination. Donald Trump discussed this story on May 3, 2016, saying to Brian Kilmeade of Fox News that "His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald's being — you know, shot. I mean the thing is ridiculous."
63.  On May 4, 2016, Trump stated that he did not actually believe the story but wanted to "let the people read it." Rafael Cruz responded to these accusations, saying they "are totally unfounded and without merit."
64.  On July 22, 2016, Trump again mentioned the magazine in connection with Cruz's father, saying "... I know nothing about his father. I know nothing about Lee Harvey Oswald. But there was a picture on the front page of the National Enquirer that does have credibility.
65.  On October 27, 2017, President Donald Trump allowed the secret archives related to the murder of John F Kennedy (JFK) to be opened to the public. But President Donald Trump blocked the release of some documents at least temporarily.
66.  Trump kept around thousands of more documents classified, though. He said that they could be a concern for U.S. national security.
67.  Former Los Angeles District Attorney Vincent Bugliosi estimated that a total of 42 groups, 82 assassins, and 214 people had been accused of various conspiracy theories on the assassination.

According to Vincent Bugliosi, 95% of those books are "pro-conspiracy and anti-Warren Commission."
68.  Richard Buyer and others have complained that many documents of the assassination have been withheld over the years, including documents from the Warren Commission investigation, the House Select Committee on Assassinations investigation, and the Church Committee investigation. These documents at one time included the President's autopsy records. Some documents are still not scheduled for release until 2029.
69.  The Texas School Book Depository's sixth floor, where assassin Lee Harvey Oswald had positioned himself for the shooting, is a museum dedicated to JFK's assassination now.
