Confession of Howard Hunt

E. Howard Hunt, America’s most notorious spook who later served time for his role as one of the plumbers in the bungled burglary that later toppled Richard Nixon, gave a near-deathbed confession to his long-estranged son, naming then-Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson and a handful of CIA spooks as the cabal behind the assassination of John F. Kennedy

Before his death in January 2007, CIA master spy and convicted Watergate conspirator Howard Hunt confessed to being peripherally involved in the assassination of President Kennedy, and named several other participants.

In notes and conversations with his son Saint John, and in an audiotape he created in 2004 to be played after his death, Hunt described being invited into the “big event” at a Miami safehouse in 1963.

Howard Hunt names numerous individuals with both direct and indirect CIA connections as having played a role in the assassination of Kennedy, while describing himself as a “bench warmer” in the plot. Saint John Hunt, son of E. Howard Hunt, agreed that the use of this term indicates that Hunt was willing to play a larger role in the murder conspiracy had he been required.

Hunt alleges on the tape that then Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was involved in the planning of the assassination and in the cover-up, stating that LBJ, “Had an almost maniacal urge to become president, he regarded JFK as an obstacle to achieving that.”

The Testimony of Virginia Hill

‘QUEEN OF THE MOB’ WAS NO ONE’S PUSHOVER

 

SENATOR TOBEY: “But why would Joe Epstein give you all that money, Miss Hill?”

 

WITNESS: “You really want to know?”

 

SENATOR TOBEY: “Yes, I really want to know.”

 

WITNESS: “Then I’ll tell you why. Because I’m the best {expletive} sucker in town!”

 

SENATOR KEFAUVER: “Order! I demand order!”

–Excerpt from Virginia Hill’s testimony in front of the Senate Special Committee to Investigate Organized Crime in Interstate Gambling.

In the beginning of the 50’s, United States seeked to expose and bring into public attention the growing issue of organized crime at that time.

It started on April 1950, when a dead body of a gambling kingpin from Kansas City was found in a Democratic clubhouse. That assassination raised concerns about the growth of organized crime and its involvement with politics. The need for an investigation committee concerning this issue was discovered, and on May 3, 1950, the Senate created an investigation committee of 5 members, lead by a Democratic Senator from Tennessee, Estes Kefauver.

In its 15 months of hearings, the committee, investigating corruption, crime syndicates and illegal activities, visited several large cities, in which TV broadcasts were interrupted to bring the work of the committee to the attention of the public. The most notable hearing was when the committee reached Broadway, New York, to interview Frank Costello. An estimated number of 30 million watched or listened to the hearings.

In Illinois, the Committee helped to expose a Chicago Police scandal, which later brought down the Senate career of Scott Lucas, a Democratic Majority Leader.

The completion of the hearings signaled the Senate to implement some suggestions about how to better tighten the laws concerning the prevention of corruption and organized crime. It caused the FBI to stop denying the existence of the underworld.

And they call my site a hate speech site…

Martyn Bradbury likes to call me a hate speech merchant, but he has at least taken to adding “Canon Media Award winning” to the front of that.

But the sanctimony of him is like most on the left…weapons grade.

Where we, through our moderation changes, and a vigilant team assisting are managing and improving our reader and commenters experience…this is the kind of comments that Martyn Bradbury allows to live on his union funded site.

Smiling wife orders killing of husband because “easier than divorce” [VIDEO]

There she is.  Isn’t she lovely?

[A] chilling video has emerged of a young wife trying to hire a hit man to murder her husband because it was ‘easier than divorcing’ him.

Julia Charlene Merfeld, 20, of Michigan in the US, has pleaded guilty to soliciting the murder of her 27-year-old husband.

An undercover police officer posing as a hit man secretly filmed two videos of Merfeld as they negotiated the killing while sitting in a car.

At one point Merfeld explains that in her opinion, murder would be “easier than divorcing” – she wouldn’t have to worry about her family’s judgment or “breaking his heart” if he was killed.

If maps kill people…

The screw loose useful idiots of the left wing are desperately trying to prove that a map made someone kill some and therefore the gun was vicariously in Sarah Palins hand.

This is the image they say put the target onto Arizona representative Gabrielle Giffords:

Sarah Palin PAC map

Now to use their correlation, that maps kill people, then we can similarly hold the Democrats responsible for killing their own representative because this mp is from their own Heartland Strategy:

Democrat Heartland Strategy Map

Democrats use "bulls eye" targets extensively in their political graphics. This map shows states Democrats want targeted. Arizona, which Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords represents, is surrounded by these targets.

As you can see the Democrats have “killed” their own with their map. This argument is of course ludicrous but it is the argument that the nutters at The Standard and other left wing sites are trying to pull….that somehow maps cause people to kill and that therefore puts the gun into the hands of the map creator or owner.

We can now re-write the old saying that guns don’t kill people, maps do.

The only person responsible for this terrible killing and attempted assassination is the insane person behind the trigger, no one else. It is ludicrous to suggest otherwise. And I don’t even care what his politics are. He is just plain nuts thinking shooting people is going to solve anything.

I know one thing for sure though. He is not a Tea party supporter…in one of his videos he is shooting up and then burning a US flag. Patriots don’t do that…ever.
