Certain phrases increase our anxiety. One that really hits our subconscious is “mysterious death”. Social media are overrun with stories of “mysterious deaths”. Good examples are the “mysterious deaths” of thirteen holistic doctors, or tens of bankers, or hundreds of scientists.

Contemporary history is littered with suspicious deaths. Governmental related “mysterious deaths” include: the most recent entry, Justice Scalia; FBI Directors, William Sullivan and Louis Freeh (an almost), CIA directors William Colby and William Casey; White House related, Ron Brown and Vince Foster; Senators Paul Wellstone, John Heinz, and John Tower (all plane crashes with the latter two within 24 hours of each other) and Congressmen Leo Ryan, Larry McDonald, and Hale Boggs.

Mobsters are always dying, but several died just before they would have to publicly speak about the JFK murder. Sam Giancana was hit in his basement, and Johnny Roselli ended up floating in an oil drum in Biscayne Bay, his body cut in half.

Famous people who died mysteriously include: John Lennon, Dorothys Hunt and Kilgallen, Marilyn Monroe, Malcom X, Natalie Wood, Sonny Bono, JFK Jr. and Princess Di.

Investigative reporters Michael Hastings, Danny Casolaro, and many other brave snoops have died and slipped into our collective memory hole.

Of course, the table was set over fifty years ago with the “mysterious deaths” of RFK, MLK, and JFK with a side of Oswald-Ruby and a mysterious murder-smorgasbord of hundreds of follow-up deaths. Toss in 3,000 9/11 deaths and a variety of mass shootings, and you have a recipe for the creation of massive paranoia or reality unawareness depending on your outlook.

Motives for these deaths are often related to hiding other crimes; exposing pedophiles in powerful positions; stopping technological progress to maintain the status quo in the energy or medical industries; or they are related to the 1963 American coup d’état.

In addition to the array of talented dogs and cats, the mindless Kardashiantics, and the incessant political bleating on Facebook and Twitter, never-ending conspiracy memes will continue to push our consciousness into a paralyzing state of numbness. What can we do? The real circumstances of the deaths of our leaders are ignored by our law enforcement system. Since many of these deaths appear to be murder or have other disturbing implications, and since the official investigations are obviously bogus or non-existent, the nation has become more paranoid and divided. The system has failed.

The official story is just that…a story. People know these official stories are lies. Few would deny that something fishy happened to Marilyn Monroe. A majority of people in America strongly believe that JFK was killed by conspirators. The whole 9/11 thing was so terrible that most people find comfort in the “official”, but ridiculous, conspiracy theory. The Sirhan Sirhan/RFK death story has more bullet “holes” than the official shooter could have created.

These “mysterious deaths” are only those that we recognize because of the societal effect of the murder or the prominence of the deceased, but most likely there are thousands of other “mysterious deaths” which go unnoticed.

Sadly, the system has effectively covered up the evil deeds. The JFK death is a perfect example. More than five decades have passed and the “Lone Nut Oswald” story still adorns our history textbooks, and it is still repeated by the main stream media to the exclusion of any other solution.

This will not change. The cover-up will continue. Inquiring minds are not going to change anything. Hundreds of Facebook Groups, active with well-meaning people working to expose the truth, will not prevail. The truth of all these murders will remain buried by the system. This should be understood. The politicians, the media, the church, the educational system, and the publishing industry will not change their stories…ever.

Does this mean we should be like the average German in World War 2? Did she wake up one day and ask the question: “What ever happened to Mrs. Goldberg? I don’t see her around anymore?” We should not be so naive. Nor should we waste energy to prove that our “Mrs. Goldberg” has been murdered. It is enough to know this and to know we are in a virtual police state. Somehow we should announce our disbelief. We should create an equivalent to the post-9/11 patriotic paradigm: the flagging waving, the jet plane flybys, and the endless hugging of footless soldiers. We should no longer honor this bizarre passion play created by W. Bush, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz, and other maniacal nuts. We need a new script, a new banner, a new armband, a new voice which tells the world and especially those who run the corrupt and vile New American system: “We’re just not buying your stories anymore. We’re not going to revolt. We’re not going to march on Washington. We’re not going to file a lawsuit or protest. We are just done pretending. It’s over.”

—“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.”― Joseph Heller, Catch-22—

History is the foundation of our understanding of reality. It creates a context for all current and future events. Our reality appears comforting when today’s activities dovetail tightly into our belief in the veracity and continuity of these past events. Everything will then fit current paradigm. But is history constructed of solid facts or is it simply a house of cards? Is it really just a collection of stories, opinions, and lies—all subject to manipulation? If so, then history is an unreliable facade enclosing a defective, uninhabitable structure.

Today’s historical structure is a fragile house of cards which weakens as it gets larger, older, and more vulnerable. The cards themselves are usually sturdy facts. Something happened which can be verified—a ship went down, a military base was attacked, a political figure died. People saw something happen and it appeared real. The viewers may even have created a hard-copy of the event. But the tower of historical cards is an assemblage of gingerly connected lies, coloration, distortions, delays and half-truths presented by the leaders of society. Only the gravity of the situations maintains the structure. People have a need to believe in the strength of these connections even though they are obviously flimsy.

At one time, people believed the power of a king was absolute. The integrity of political leaders was unquestionable. The decisions of religious leaders were infallible. The events presented in the mainstream media were unassailable. But time has the power to weaken these certainties and the edifice of history has now become unstable. The winds of war, fate, and dissension are increasing in velocity and duration— this house of deception is about to collapse.

We are nearing the inflection point. We are collectively waiting for the final event card to be placed atop the structure—the death of an unknown Archduke, a Pearl Harbor attack, or a Watergate break-in. The tower of history is again teetering. We know it is about to fall. Those who have attached their entire being to belief in the structure will continue to fight to the end to maintain the collection of lies. But the structure is delicate. The house of cards is inherently weak. No one can really increase its strength over time. Promoters can only attempt to buttress it with bravado, ridicule, and bluster. In the end it will fall.

The builders of the structure of history rely on a humanity that is unwilling to fight the consensus, or that is comprised of people who forget, or people who die and go away. But today the consensus-creation machines are breaking down. The people’s internet is challenging the rulers’ mass-media. People live longer and they remember. They are constantly recording and revisiting events, facts and opinions. Historical distortions and lies weigh heavily on their psyches. Blatant and subtle lies visit their homes. They are losing their jobs. They are hungry. They seem to have no future. Their political leaders are laughable and inept. Patriotic blather is too simple-minded and fraudulent to proclaim. It is becoming impossible to maintain belief in official history. The complex of interconnected lies is too vast to be maintained. The winds of recognition are whistling through this enormous empty shell of a building. It’s about to fall.

Traditionally, at this moment, the creators of this history, decide to demolish the structure. They will knock it down rather than have it collapse uncontrolled. They will create war or economic depression, or some other massive grief. They will blame its collapse on somebody or something.

The controllers will never admit that they were the creators of the corrupt construction. The will excitedly announce the ground-breaking of a new structure. The old lies will disappear into the dust and rubble, and new events and new lies will begin. The people, now broken and disoriented, flying wild in unstructured reality, will wholeheartedly join the eager and terrified construction crews, as they did after the World Wars; after the public murders of John Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Robert Kennedy; after the bloodshed in Vietnam and Cambodia; after Nixon’s fall; and after the destruction of the Twin Towers. They will build a new history as directed by those in control and it will comfort them and their children…for a while.

Oswald? In his backyard

A Body + A Rifle + A Head = A Lonely, Sullen, Angry Assassin

I published my novel, Saving JFK, on Amazon Kindle in July of 2011. Stephen King’s blockbuster, 11-22-63 was published in November of 2011. In October, 2011, I issued the following press release which was picked up by a couple of websites:

“The “Other” Novel About Time Travel Back to 11/22/63: Saving JFK by W. Green

Can we excise the cancerous conspiracy cover-up that silently steals our lives and the lives of future generations? Saving JFK tells the story of three young people and one aging “baby boomer” from the year 2028 who ask this question, and then spin back in time to stop the assassination of President Kennedy and resurrect the American Dream.

This is a time-traveling road show filled with nostalgia and nastiness, fact and fantasy, and hope for the future. Older Americans, deep down, may sense the ugly truth of the JFK assassination, but ignore it. Younger people, understandably, may be unaware of the significance of bloody events leading to today’s bizarre and dismal circumstances. Fifty years of official denial and concealment have left Americans with an empty shell of a country constructed on the foundation of a fictional history. The success of the next generation of Americans may hinge on its indignant recognition of past deception and a willingness to take corrective action. The time travelers in Saving JFK are indignant and do take action.

The official history of the year 2028 reads: “November 2, 1963 in Chicago, President John F. Kennedy was brutally murdered by a single assassin”. Over the years, politicians and the media relentlessly pounded the people into accepting the official government story…a lone nut…perfect timing…no conspiracy. The four individuals from the future say “no”. They believe they have the power to change history. Fearlessly, against the laws of nature and man, Emma, Ethan and Zak and the inventor of the TimeTravelle Dr. Currant, escape from the year 2028 to stop the “Crime of the Century” and save JFK.

They struggle to achieve a positive future, but success in the time travel business is not always satisfactory. Destiny has a way of quickly repairing rips in the fabric of time. Emma and Ethan, the Time Travel Twins, and their two companions experience the adventure of their lives. They are given the chance to change history for the better. They leave the monotonous madness of the year 2028—a time of no privacy, no hope, and total government control—and experience the joys and sadness of an earlier, bolder time filled with hope for the future. On the way, they meet Ferrie, Banister, Oswald, Richard Cain, the mysterious Umbrella Man, the Three Tramps and other conspiratorial characters. As they attempt to understand the motives of these iconic figures, the Time Travel Twins and their friends experience life in the early Sixties and their ability to initiate positive change. Their quixotic quest is an exciting, illuminating and noble effort to create a better future.

Saving JFK is based on a real conspiratorial plot to end the life of the President, often called the “JFK Chicago Attempt”. In late October 1963 four assassins entered the city of Chicago intent upon killing JFK. Equipped with sniper rifles, they were ready to shoot him as his motorcade proceeded from O’Hare Airport to Soldier Field. With this scheme in place, JFK would never make it to the annual Army/Air Force football game. Of course there was a “patsy”. Officially, in the world of 2028, the President would be assassinated by a “lone nut” shooting from the roof a of Jackson Boulevard warehouse. Or would he?”

I never was upset that King wrote a similar book. The idea of saving JFK via time travel was not particularly original. In fact, the conjunction of these two books was beneficial for early sales of my book. So for brief moment, the hare and the tortoise waited at the starting line, but then in the next moment the race was over. 11-22-63, the book, has been extremely successful and soon will appear as a television mini-series.

The Kindle version of King’s book ranks at #1,699 while the tortoise plods along at #828,564. King’s book has 8,799 reviews and my book has 8. I have never read the King book and I will not because the only thing I could possibly learn from the book would be how to create a best-seller, or how to write fashionable (and some would say creatively, wonderful) fiction. But I was interested in the reviews. Would readers complain about the regurgitation of the now-disgraced Warren Report? Would they be fired up that a book about the crime of the century was a rehash of the November 29, 1963 LIFE magazine version. Would anyone care about reality? Or would they only be interested in fiction?

Based on Gallup polls (a recent one was taken in 2013), the high point of “lone nut” believers was in 1966 when 36 percent of those Americans polled thought that “one man” was responsible. The 2013 poll showed this had dropped to 30 percent and that 61 percent thought that others were involved…maybe the mob, or the CIA, or LBJ, or mysterious and pissed-off Cubans, etc. So it is fair to say that some of the readers of King’s book might find it difficult to trudge through hundreds of pages to find out in the end that Oswald did it. But, surprisingly, that seems not to be the case. I toured the 1 Star reviews. There are 175. But, my quick scan indicated only a few were upset by the “lone nut” scenario. I did not study the other multi-star reviews. There may be readers who liked the story and who were able to willingly “suspend belief”.

As Roseanne Roseannadanna would say, “Well, Jane, it just goes to show you, it’s always something — if it ain’t one thing, it’s another.”

Two decades ago, another great 20th century writer, Norman Mailer, wrote Oswald’s Tale, which attempted to resolve the befuddlement in the minds of some Warren Commission believers by answering the modern-day koan, “how could such a little man kill such a great man?” Mailer’s answer…here’s 828 pages which explain all the angst of the 24-year-old killer. Or another, Vincent Bugliosi’s 2007 Reclaiming History…1,632 pages which explain everything in minute detail as presented by “one of the finest legal minds of our time”. 2012 brought forth Bill O’Reilly’s book Killing Kennedy which is shorter than some of the other Warren Report redux books, but comes to the same conclusion. This book engendered 7,298 reviews with 317 coming from the 1 Star crowd. A quick review of these reviews seems to indicate more outrage from readers. Possibly, because this was supposed to be a non-fiction book. Apparently these readers would not deny their beliefs for the sake of a good read.

But the question remains, why do these stellar authors, authorities, and analysts write to the 30% potential audience? And then, why are they so successful? Maybe it is because those readers in the 30% Club are in denial. Maybe they can’t stand the sound of one hand clapping. Maybe, the authority voices of these well-known authors comfort them. Maybe having total faith in the powerful and all-seeing government of the United States is like a religion to them. But even that belief has its limits. Remember that in 1979 the United States House Select Committee on Assassinations found conspiracy.  Thus an official government study says the “little man killing the big man” theory does not apply.

I am a believer in conspiracies. From my point of view, human-directed big events do not happen by accident, especially the killings of heads of state. As L. Fletcher Prouty says, the only “politically correct” way to eliminate an unwanted leader of a democratic country, quickly and surely, is by removing his Praetorian Guard.

In 1963, once the Secret Service and military stood aside, it was impossible to save JFK. Now more than fifty years later, someone has relentlessly and effectively removed our national guardians of truth. This removal has assassinated reality. From Dan Rather to Lester Holt, the truth has been ignored in favor of the dramatization and promotion of the party line. Truth, over the past five decades, has died a slow, painful death as it stumbled about in desert of media lies and deceptions. The fiction books by Mailer and King only offer confirmation of the news media’s deceitful version of factual contemporary history.

I wrote my book Saving JFK, not to ride the coattails of a tragic event, nor to appease the Mockingbird, but rather to package the truth disguised has a 1960s Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew book. I hoped that it would appeal to the young and to adults who might prefer “a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down”.  I remain hopeful that people will read it and pass on to friends, relatives, children and grandchildren. The 61% are out there, and so are the 30% still trying to answer the koan.

But the sad fact is that JFK is dead…and so it appears…is America.

These faces are frighteningly smug, arrogant, and egotistical. They remind me of the newsreel photos of mafia mobsters in the 20s and 30s. These are the rival mobsters of today: Republicans and Democrats.

The Masses are the Asses

If a tree falls in the middle of the woods unknown to anyone, does it make a sound? A better question might end with “does it make a difference?” Many years ago, I met John Wayne Gacy. I was introduced to him on one of my jobsites. He was the carpentry superintendent. We  shook hands. I looked into his eyes. I saw nothing amiss. He smiled at me — a few pleasantries — and that was that. Some time earlier, President Carter’s wife Rosalynn also shook hands with him, exchanged pleasantries, and went on. Three weeks after Gacy and I met, news reports blasted that he was “The Killer Clown” and the murderer of at least 33 young men. He led a compartmentalized life. While he failed in marriage, he was a successful businessman, political and charitable worker. “Pogo the Clown” was not funny. But he was a good example of a person who was not what he appeared to be. His friends, co-workers, and acquaintances only knew what they were allowed to know. Gacy was an iceberg with almost all of his real being underwater.

The Gacy story is a good analogy for society in general. The masses —  us — the 99.99%, include  plenty of smart, powerful, rich, and even sensitive people as well as everyone else. But we are almost totally unaware of the lives and reality of the richest, most powerful people on the planet. We , “the great unwashed”, are like the servants in the Downton Abbey television series. We are close enough to the royalty to grab a glimpse of the true nature of Earl and Countess and their family, but their world is not really our concern, except as we are to provide “service”. Rumors may fly about other nearby dukes, earls and such, but it’s all rumor — conversation only — not our true concern — our task is to serve. So if the Earl has a fling with the help, or the King parties with commoners, it’s not our concern. And for certain, if the leaders of the 1/100th of One Per Cent Club decide it’s time to fight a ridiculous, brutal war, that’s their business. Our job is to cook, clean, and fuss about the lords and ladies. Sure we can gossip and speculate, but we will never know what’s really happening because the societal system is run by that tiny, but ultra-powerful group, that is very capable of keeping secrets and exercising deception.

We are part of the 99.99 Per Cent Club. Bill Clinton, President Obama, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter, and many other upper-echelon people are also in the 99.99 club. We take orders, we do the work, and we operate in the dark and live in a world of rumor and gossip. We are the unknown and the unknowing. And that is just the way things are. Some of us (even news media people on occasion) notice weird things that go bump in the night like George de Mohrenschild’s relationship with Jackie Kennedy. Or Barack Obama’s mysterious back-story. Or that President Reagan’s assailant, John Hinkley, was the brother of a good friend of Neil Bush (George the 1st’s  son) and they were scheduled to have dinner together on the night of the assassination attempt. These news tidbits float up to the surface like images of John Wayne Gacy dressed in a clown suit, but none of it makes sense. So we shake our heads and just ignore it. Such things are not to be understood by “the help” — not our business.

So it is with the JFK assassination, the Vietnam War, the Grenada invasion, the War in Afghanistan, the Iraq War, Jim Jones, Waco, Oklahoma City, 911, and all the other things that we just don’t quite get.

I wonder if it all makes sense to those “in the know”, the members of the 1/100th of One Per Cent Club. Oh. Sorry. Just forget I said this. I must get back to work…
