Reading Time: 5 minutes Aldous Huxley died on the same day as John F. Kennedy. It’s an interesting factoid, but does it mean anything? Here’s one take on the possible significance.

But something is quite wrong with his story about what he allegedly saw — and, it turns out later, about his own background. Who was he really?
Reading Time: 13 minutes John F. Kennedy would have turned 100 today and we can only imagine how he would feel about the current president. There might be a few clues in the following excerpts, which display Kennedy’s wit, perception, and originality.

Reading Time: 17 minutes What possible connection could there have been between George H.W. Bush and the assassination of John F. Kennedy? Or between the C.I.A. and the assassination? Or between Bush and the C.I.A.? For some people, apparently, making such connections was as dangerous as letting one live wire touch another. Here, in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination in November, is the seventh part of a ten-part series of excerpts from WhoWhatWhy editor Russ Baker’s bestseller, Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years. The story is a real-life thriller.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Ernst Titovets, a Soviet-era friend of Lee Harvey Oswald, is being blocked by the US government from visiting Dallas for a lecture on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death. Strange, because what the man has to say fundamentally supports the US establishment’s preferred line on Oswald—that he was just a man on his own—hence not working for intelligence service. So why block such a cooperative figure? Is it crazy to wonder whether this is actually designed to draw further attention to what Titovets has to say?
Reading Time: < 1 minute Part Five of a UK documentary series on the JFK assassination. 46 minutes long. Stunning—settle in and watch the entire thing.

Another of many “someones” who “would have talked” – and did.

Reading Time: 5 minutes On February 15, President Obama bestowed the Medal of Freedom, the United States’ highest award, to a group of people which includes former president George H.W. Bush. Having spent five years researching the elder Bush and discovering a staggering array of secrets to the man’s life—none of them favorable, I was curious why Obama gave Bush the medal.
