The revelations so far about JFK

Remember the last few weeks when everybody in the Pundit biz talked about what a yawner the revelation of the redacted files on JFK’s assassination would be? Fun times. First, there’s this: This is a memo from the then-director of the CIA John McCone, to James Rowley, the chief of the Secret Service, on the […]

The Gummit drops the JFK assassination files

Today is the day the National Archives and Records Administration is supposed to reveal long-suppressed documents regarding the assassination of JFK.

But he’s no longer the methodical, analytic individual I first encountered when watching his videos from 2012. I think he’s playing to an audience of his […]

Las Vegas shooting–the rumors start (UPDATE)

A preamble. While I’ve frequently mentioned conspiracy theories here, I think I’ve been careful to draw a line on what (I think) is believable and what is not. For example, I think the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have made a credible case that the story of 9/11 has a seriously compromised narrative. One […]
