Possible online release of JFK assassination records imminent, however, Trump may withhold some

According to the JFK Act everything is supposed to be releases by the end of this month.  In fact, some postponed in full document have a release date before Oct 31st.

Jefferson Morley has an article out in which it is feared some intelligence agencies have appealed to the President to withhold some of their documents.

This is a must read, and deeply disturbing, if true. I'm bothered that I don't really see anything officially from NARA about anything Morley mentions.

An attempt to continue to withhold documents is not totally unexpected, but troubling to hear that Trump may be willing to do so.  I for one was hoping that this imbecile would stay the hell out of the issue altogether.

Also troubling is that NARA is planning to make another ONLINE release this month.  God only knows when they're going to do this, how much they plan to release online, exactly how they're going to do this, and how many of the documents will be so totally illegible that it's pointless for them to have even done so with such documents.  One wonder if the originals ( which probably aren't original anything, but horrible 1960's and '70's era photocopies many, many generations removed from their original source ) or if the scanning was done at such a low-resolution and in a .pdf format solely to get as much as possible scanned and available to the public by a certain deadline.  I'm almost hoping that is the case because then one could go back and rescan in .tiff ( uncompresses ) and in color to perhaps regain some legibility to some documents.

I plan to be at Archives II the week of Oct 23rd to the 27th.  I suspect making a massive online presence with released material is being done to reduce the number of general members of the public and possible media from descending upon them this month.  I do hope to see some JFK researchers there.  And if they release material online I'm sure we'll all be eager to receive it.

Stay tuned.

LAST JFK ASSASSINATION RECORDS MAY BE RELEASED SOON


LAST JFK ASSASSINATION RECORDS MAY BE RELEASED SOON

The nominal deadline for release of the last remaining records concerning the assassination of President Kennedy under the terms of the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 is October 26, 2017, or two weeks from now.

Agencies have an opportunity to request postponement of release, beyond the deadline, of a few thousand records that are still being withheld, subject to Presidential approval. Officials would not say if any such requests have been forwarded to the White House, but so far none are known to have been approved by President Trump.

In a 
resolution introduced in the Senate last week, Senators Charles Grassley and Patrick Leahy called for full release of all remaining assassination records.

They urged the President of the United States to "reject any claims for the continued postponement of the full public release of those records."

Further background from the Congressional Research Service can be found in

Judge supports Marquette University's suspension of John McAdams.


A 33 page smackdown of the bully, John McAdams.

Thank you Judge David Hanser.  I needed a laugh.

All of McAdams claims were dismissed.  The putz said he'd appeal.

Finally, the shameless feel shame, and are silent




There is a go-fund-me page for Heather and her family


Go. Visit. Donate.


Her last words



If you're not outraged,
you're not paying attention.

Heather Heyer

This is the S.O.B. who killed Heather Heyer



James Fields is second from the left wearing sunglasses and carry a shield.  There is a group called Hatewatch on Twitter that watches hates groups.  Fields belongs to one called "Vanguard America."  

Extreme Right-wing internet trolls tried to blame the crime on a Left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter.  

The "Unite the Right" rally was organized by Jason Kessler.  

Vanguard America is distancing itself from Fields claiming he was never an official member. 

The woman killed in Charlottesville, VA was Heather Heyer. She was 32 years old.



Look at her, and try not to cry.  

This woman was killed by a Nazi 
in America 
in 2017.
