Easy peasy, he tells Fox is Sunday morning futures that Border Patrol agents will tell you straight up that President Biden's immigration policies aren't working. They think that vetting people with the border is racist on every other country in the world thinks it's it's prudent. What we're doing now is dangerous.

When the FBI Spied on Martin Luther King Jr.
"A new documentary out today called. Mlk fbi which traces the ways in which the fbi was surveilling. Martin luther king junior towards the end of his life as well as other black activists in an attempt to tamp down the civil rights movements directed by legendary filmmaker sam pollard. This documentary is based on a nineteen eighty one book by historian david garrow as well as documents released by the national archives in two thousand seventeen and two thousand eighteen quoting the atlantic. Mlk fbi arrows attempts to stifle the civil rights movement through coordinated efforts to spy on king with the hope of discrediting his righteous public image with king as with many black activists since the beginning of the twentieth century. The fbi surveillance wasn't an isolated obsession. It was part of a long running effort to keep black americans from acquiring institutional power. Pohlad told me the film traces. Exactly how the surveillance of king started how it was conducted and the effects it had on his life end quote using tons of archival footage and interviews with firsthand witnesses. The film illustrates how. Fbi's surveillance of black americans began as part of fbi director. Jaeger hoover's obsession with rooting out. Communism believing black people to be more susceptible to political manipulation as their efforts became more focused specifically on martin luther king junior and his growing influence. The fbi sought to expose his extramarital affairs as a way of discrediting him to the public and his followers but director sample are noted to npr's fresh air quote would hoover didn't bank on was back in the sixties. The press did not take the bait. They didn't reveal the personal lives of these public figures. They didn't do with john kennedy. They didn't do with others and they didn't do it. With dr king and quotes and while this documentary serves as a needed reminder. That martin luther king junior was not universally revered in his time there could be wearing that paints too negative a picture of him by including personal details like the affairs he had producer. Benjamin heddon said a our approach however quote he wouldn't be d- mythology someone he would simply be portraying him with responsibility and sympathy the way he would subject in his documentaries who was not known to the wider public and quotes and hannah georgia's said in the atlantic quote. Mlk fbi offers an important corrective to prevailing myths about king and his principles of nonviolent resistance. Which were not in fact. Widely embraced as my colleague. Van newkirk wrote in two thousand eighteen hostility toward the civil rights. Movement turned into a cherry. Pick celebration of the revolutions victories over segregation in over easily caricatured gap toothed bigots in the south and quotes and continuing georgia's. The reality was that opposition to king into the racial progress. He symbolized was restricted by region or by political affiliation diplomats and republicans alike had turned against king by his later years especially after he voiced objection to the vietnam war. It's impossible to separate the fbi's decades long commitment to tracking black activists from its relative failure to address the credible threats posed by white nationalists including those that surfaced with last week's deadly attack on the capital the fbi surveilling king and using dubious reasoning to do so isn't altogether shocking for much of the country's history sabotaging black rebellion by any means necessary has been integral to preserving white political power. The new and still contested development is finally accepting black people as active participants in american democracy and quotes.

My businesses different good thing is all of our businesses are different. That's great and we will have to do things. And it's not way but the big thing we've got to remember is every body us you. The people who've got gillian subscribers. Every single one of us had a very special day when we got subscriber number one of course at the end of the day you end up sitting there going. I get subscriber number two or will it. Just be me mom listening to me emails. So the good news is everybody does start off with suitable. And that's a really humbling thing. Think about that.

You've got to write an email as if you're sending it to one person so when the person receives it they're reading it as if it's a one on one intimate conversation you don't want to start him off with hi guys. Everyone's doing this. But what do you mean. I am not guys. I am not guys that that's wrong. So actually you're gonna remember we. These emails must feel like a one communication. No you're not going to fake it. You don't going to pretend they all want a one. Communications obviously going to be legit and above board with it all.

That's good news your customer whether you're dealing with people who are older people who are middle age or people who are like if you're dealing with kids most kids these days full school stuff need to need to have an email address so one of the thirteen thirty or three hundred years old. They have an email address. Everyone has an email address. in fact. yeah. I think this is really interesting. You know if you look different businesses so maybe teach scuba diving. Maybe you teach Health and fitness. Whatever it is if you look different niches you'll often find people say well my audience really hang out on this platform a mile audience. Really hang on this phone for example. If you're selling wedding dresses than one of the best places that you could be is going to be pinterest. Probably pinterest instagram. The wet selling light wedding dresses and bridal stuff and if you saw interior design same saw a deal but if you're selling something that's more corporate you probably want to going to be on linked probably gonna be a maybe facebook as well and so people always talk about. Where is my audience. I'll tell you where all those people are. Email one hundred percent of them like it's not like a pig tiktok or instagram. Like the oled that so.

Donald Trump's disregard for our transition rituals threatens democracy
"Have you noticed. This is not normal. The president openly trying to say only the votes for him should count talking about sailing election. No legal path to succeed. We've been reporting on how those michigan republicans were welcomed at the white house after being shamed in their own home state for what they were doing. And donald trump is also taking petty moves that basically delay or mess with aspects of the transition. They won't mess with the transfer of power. All of this. We want to show tonight with. The evidence is a radical break from a longstanding. Bipartisan approach to the peaceful transfer of power in america that look forward to talking to the president so honored that he was attended with hospitality to me. And my wife. Yesterday didn't need to do this. And i am most grateful that He would do so good morning last night. I had a warm conversation with president. Elect barack obama. I congratulated him and senator biden on their impressive. Victory told the president-elect he can count on complete cooperation for my administration as he makes the transition to the white house. My number one priority. In the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures dental is successful. We turned presidential historian. Michael beschloss what contrast you see from there to now well once again are a donald trump tonight as a category of his own. Go all the way back to john adams who lost to the guy who was at that time as you know his political enemy. Thomas jefferson. Adams was angry about being defeated by jefferson. And he didn't hang around for the inauguration that tradition adopted established yet so adams got an a stage coach and went back to massachusetts before jefferson was born in but it began this tradition. That even when you have an incumbent president who is angry at the guy who beat him for reelection. Herbert hoover in one thousand nine hundred ninety three and franklin roosevelt over to the white house to talk about how they should transfer power even when they rolled up to the capital roosevelt and hoover sat in the back of an open car. They shared a lap robe. If you could believe it didn't talk much. But that's a tradition. And as you say the tradition is running alongside both the rules constitutional requirements and the norms that much abuse a framework or term in the last four years That provide a buffer a provide a context all this. We just showed the outgoing president's michael stays with us. We want to show michael. And our viewers the other cases where we have seen the candidates as mentioned who lost just conceding with some eye on their place in history john mccain making what for him was a painful concession to barack obama in two thousand and eight hillary clinton in that loss that shocked so many including many in the republican party. She got up the next morning and gave that speech pledging cooperation to president-elect trump and sixteen we've seen presidents who lost reelection like trump did face the music the people of the united states that made the choice and of course. I accept that decision. But i have to admit not with the same enthusiasm that i accepted the decision for years ago. People have spoken. And we respect the majesty of the democratic system. I just called governor clinton over in little rock and offered my congratulations. he did run a strong campaign. I wish him well in the white house. You know michael you deal with facts and evidence you have a rigorous process between where you start and publishing one of your history books. How do you measure class. Because what i see there is something. That's hard to prove. But i feel it inside which is across ideology in parties. We've just seen many different presidents showing a type of class or even grace that is absent right now at the white house. We're going to ari. I've got two sons who are now in their twenties but they used to play a little league and every time they played a game even if they lost they would shake hands with the winning team and say good game. That was assumed this. That's that's american. What is not. American is to claim when you didn't win to be a poor loser you try to be out of keeping with the tradition of all those guys you just showed even richard nixon who is not thought of in history as a particularly gracious winner. Nineteen sixty gets beaten by john kennedy. He was very angry about it and it was very sad about it but he goes out and tells us supporters in los angeles in america. Once a decision is made we unite behind the candidate who was elected that was even before the final results were. Yeah that's great a great example. You're given off as we say off the top of the dome michael We have one more for you. And that is al gore. Who did have this tight legal challenge. Everyone remembers frustrating. For both sides in the run up to it and then of course frustrating for the person losing so narrowly having won more votes overall total across america. Al gore take a look now the. Us supreme court has spoken. Let there be no doubt while. I strongly disagree with the court's decision. I accept it. I accept the finality of this outcome. Which will be ratified next monday. In the electoral college and tonight for the sake of our unity as a people and strength of our democracy. I offer my concession. If i may be a little optimistic here at the end of the week michael ask you to guide us. What would you as someone who cares deeply about america. What would you tell citizens both parties neither party whatever. What is incumbent upon the rest of us to do if we never get that concession from this president. What do we do from here together. We just say the. Donald trump is a gross aberration. Get him out out the door. The door doesn't hit him on the way out on the twentieth of january and say we demand our leaders that they do. What all those other candidates that you show tonight did show some graciousness and understand that democracy is more important. Listen to what al gore said. He didn't say. I agree with the supreme court decision in bush v gore. He says for the sake of our democracy. I offer my concession. Most canada's most presidents love democracy want to unite the country. Donald trump is a gross aberration and exception to that tradition. Soon he'll be gone. Michael beschloss gets the word on that. Thank you sir.

Newt Minow on the Presidential Debates
"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan and this is intelligence squared US part of our discourse disruptor series and what we're going to be focusing on. Our the coming presidential debates they are coming sort of starting September twenty-ninth, the first of three. And of course, because everything's different this year, the debates are going to feel different almost certainly going to be. In some fashion remote, maybe the debaters, the candidates won't even be in the same place. There's only going to be one moderator. We're not gonNA live audience because you can't have that many people in one space in this dangerous time. Also what we have going on as a conversation simultaneously with which is focused on, maybe we shouldn't have debates maybe it's time to wrap up that whole institution and go back to a time of no debates. And when I say go back did you know that for most of American history this institution that we know is the debates did not exist that for most of our history, there were no debates and did you know that once we started having debates that in the first series, there was a remote debate the candidates were not in the same place and there was no live audience. And there was only one moderator. So maybe things are circling back. There's a lot of history here and we are interested in that because. At intelligence squared, we are very interested in history and we are also very very interested in debates. So that's what we want to focus on and we want to focus. In this case of discourse disrupters with an excellent source of information about the past and the present and potentially the future, and that is a gentleman named Newton Minot and Newton Minnow is an old friend of intelligence squared us and he's also known as the father of American presidential debates and we'll talk a little bit about why that is. But first, let's bring Newt Minnow into the conversation newt. Thank you so much for for joining us. It's really a pleasure to be back in communication with you. John I. LOOK FORWARD TO I. Admire your work or the intelligence squared very very much. Well, thank you. Can I ask before we start everything else I find it interesting that for folks who don't know you have lived through some very, very disruptive times and this one in your nineties a comes at the after a long series of other adventures. I mean, you have lived through I, think twenty three presidential elections. At this point, you have seen twelve cycles of the debates that we're GONNA be talking about. You lived through the major disruption called World War to. Use served overseas you went into politics You're an aide to ally Stevenson who ran for president does the Democratic nominee twice in the nineteen fifties. So you saw two elections then you joined John Kennedy's administration and you saw the trauma of his assassination and then you were very close friends with Robert Kennedy and you saw his assassination and lived through that and and now this. Just just to take a moment is, is this disruption different in dramatically in kind from all of the others you've seen so far? Well, I lived through all that, but then I had another. Exposure to politics with Obama, the because Michelle worked for our firm and and Barack came to be a summer associate and they fell in love and so we got. So we had another round politics with with with the OBAMAS. About that but all throughout, I would say the last fifty years of this you have been intersecting with this institution that we call the presidential debates take us back to nineteen, fifty, nine, nineteen, sixty, where as an aide to at least Stevenson. You actually were involved in the idea of pushing forward the idea that there there. He did not get to take part in that kind of debate but was interested in enemies interested because you are suggesting it. You have a very strong faith in the idea of technology. To be a force for good and for communication and you saw television as this, you're right as this big thing happening in the sixties. Well, it actually was in the fifties in when. In in the fifty six. Presidential, election. The incumbent President President Eisenhower. Having a heart attack. And there was a big question whether he would be able to run again. And I suggested to adly that instead of the candidates. Rushing. All over the country and speaking crowds that that. Now, we have television which reached every home. And that instead of traditional debate that. There'd be a series of joint appearances or debates between the presidential candidates. As they considered that his advisors thought it was a gimmick and it was he never suggested it. The Federal Communications Act when it was originally passed during the new deal. Required equal time for political candidates. The law said section three fifteen FA broadcaster gives or sells time to one candidate. At must give ourselves time to the opponent on the same basis. As a result that was interpreted by the Federal Communications Commission to mean any use of the air by a candidate including being in a news program. So the broadcasters were pressing to get news programs exempt. From the equal time requirement and they finally succeeded in the late fifties. But debates were not regarded as a news program.

President Trump Speaks About Coronavirus
"Many of the president's advisers have testified on Capitol Hill today about the corona virus and the administration's preparedness it has spread quickly across Europe at least thirteen European countries are now reporting cases initially four hundred forty people infected and the death toll at least twelve Bucks in Italy alone as the first U. S. service member has been diagnosed at a military base in South Korea in the United States the CDC is investigating reports of flight attendant has been diagnosed with the virus she had flown into and out of LAX airport in Los Angeles we are awaiting president trump's remarks in the White House briefing room a number of the president's aides including the health secretary ETS are are inside the room he has testified before Congress today this comes as a number of different countries are grappling with their own outbreaks in South Korea a U. S. soldier has come down to the coronavirus the military is ordering extra screenings of all service members and is a crucial step circling the Caribbean making an island using because someone on the phone is six we are awaiting president trump in the White House briefing room his aides have just come into the room Hey let's see what they have done we are waiting for the for some time waiting for us here's ABC's Devin Dwyer and very little time inside the room it is packed right now members of the cabinet behind me here you see economic council director Larry Kudlow's here health secretary Alex Cesar's yours while the president arrived back from India just this morning on the fact that he is holding this press conference today is a sign just how seriously he takes the threat from this disease and how seriously it could impact his presidency so we expect in the next few minutes presence talk about his plans and the two point five billion dollars he has a proposed an emergency fund it ABC's Devin Dwyer from the White House briefing room where we are awaiting president trump to speak to us about corona virus which has been spreading across Europe across Asia and for many medical experts they said there is an inevitable outbreak in the United States coming and we are waiting to hear what president trump has to say about it in the United States there seem to be about sixty cases health officials say American family should be prepared for more and the administration is taking pains to say that the United States is prepared even though some in the administration in recent days have seemingly played down the threat from corona virus as of president trump gets ready to declare the CDC and his administration are doing a great job handling corona virus she has tweeted that and he says there has not been one death in the United States let's keep it that way on Capitol Hill today the secretary of health and Human Services had a warning now even though Americans risk is low at the moment at the health secretary said that could change quickly lawmakers from both parties have voiced concern about the administration's response so as the president gets set to come to the White House briefing room microphone he does face that challenge not to induce panic but also to show that he is taking this seriously despite those tweets where he has seemingly tried to play down the threat we heard from at least one Republican senator today John Kennedy of Louisiana saying to the head of homeland security do we have enough respirators or not and and the the centers for disease control was pressed how many tests can the country conduct as of today and some Democrats have blamed the administration for failing to come clean on many of these are questions so we will see what the president is prepared to say any moment now as he walks into the White House briefing room to talk about the response to coronavirus as his administration faces what many medical experts say is an inevitable outbreak in the United States of the briefing room the White House briefing room which hasn't gotten the the the work out of late is now full of waiting president trump for the first time in that briefing room by the way since January of twenty nineteen and then not appearance he has a he declined to take questions so if he does take questions from all those reporters that are packed in there this would mark the first time in his administration he is taking questions inside the White House briefing room we'll see he has members of his cabinet that will be arrayed beside him as he gets set to take the podium to talk about the administration's response to corona virus that the president of course has been keeping a close eye on the the viruses climbing through Asia and Europe and it's also been closely watching the Dow Jones industrial average because that has taken a nose dive as of late amid fears that the virus is not contained in that will have been increasingly damaging effects on the economy not only the the American economy but the economy around the world companies like Microsoft came out today to say that the coronavirus is taking a toll much of what they manufacture in China is is taking a hit the administration has asked Congress for two and a half billion dollars to respond to the corona virus threats and house speaker Paul Losi said today that is not nearly enough and accusing the administration of an immediate response and so it seems Congress may be prepared for more president trump has now opened the doors to the briefing room followed by vice president Mike pence you're listening to live coverage from ABC thank you very much everybody thank you very much before I begin I'd like to extend my deepest condolences to the victims and families in Milwaukee Wisconsin earlier today wicked murder opened fire at a Molson Coors brewing company plant taking the lives of five people number of people were wounded so badly wounded our hearts break for them and their loved ones we send our condolences will be with them and it's a terrible thing terrible five our hearts go out to the people of Wisconsin then to the families thank you very much I've just received another briefing from a great group of talented people following the virus that is going around to various parts of the world we have through some very good early decisions decisions that were actually ridiculed at the beginning we closed up our borders through flights coming in from certain areas areas that were hit by the corona virus and hit pretty hard and we did it very early a lot of people thought we shouldn't have done it that early and we did and it turned out to be a very good thing and the number one priority from our standpoint is the health and safety of the American people unless you have unit when I made that decision because of all we've done the risk to the American people remains very low we have the greatest experts in the war really in the world right here the people that are called upon by other countries when things like this happen we we're ready to adapt and we're ready to do whatever we have to as the disease spreads if it spreads as most of you know the the level that we've had in our country is very low and those people are getting better a we think that in almost all cases there the better getting we have a total of fifteen we took in some from Japan you heard about that because they're American citizens and they're in quarantine and they're getting better too but we felt we had an obligation to do that it could have been as many as forty two and we found that we were it was just an obligation we felt that we had we could have left them and that would have been very bad very bad I think Merican papal and they're recovering of the fifteen people three original fifteen as I call them eight of them have returned to their homes to stay in their homes until fully recovered one is in the hospital and five have fully recovered and one is we think in pretty good shape and did serve in between hospital and going home so we have a total of but we have a total of fifteen people and they're they're in the process of recovering with some already having fully recovered we started out by looking at certain things that we've been working with the hill very very carefully very strongly and I think we are very good bipartisan spirit for money we were asking for two and a half million and we think that's a lot but the Democrats and I guess senator Schumer wants is that much more than that and normally life I say we'll take it we'll take it if they want to give more will do more we're gonna spend whatever's appropriate hopefully we're not gonna have to spend so much because we really think we've done a great job in keeping it down to a minimum and again we've had tremendous success tremendous success beyond what people would have thought now the same time you do have some outbreaks in some countries Italy and various countries are having some difficulty China you know about where it started I spoke with president xi we had a great talk he's working very hard I have to say is working very very hard and if you can count on the reports coming out of China that spread has gone down quite a bit the infection seems to have calmed down over the last two days as opposed to getting larger it's actually gotten smaller in one instance where we think we can be it's somewhat reliable it seems to have gotten quite a bit smaller with respect to the money that said being negotiated they can do whatever they want I mean they can we'll do that don't have we're requesting two and a half some Republicans would like us to get four and some Democrats would like this to get eight to half and we'll be satisfied whatever whatever it is we're bringing in a specialist very highly regarded specialist tomorrow who works actually at the state department very very tremendously talented in doing this I want you to understand something that shocked me when I saw that I spoke with the doctor felt she on this and I was really amazed and I think most people are amazed to hear that the flu in our country kills from twenty five thousand people to sixty nine thousand people a year that was shocking to me and so far if you look at what we have with the fifteen people and their recovery one is one is pretty sick but the hopefully we'll recover but the others are in great shape but think of that twenty five thousand to sixty nine thousand over the last ten years we've lost three hundred and sixty thousand these are people that have died from the flu from what we call the flu Hey did you get your flu shot and that something now what we've done is we've stopped non US citizens from coming into America from China that was done very early on with screening people we have been at a very high level of screening people coming into the country from infected areas we have in quarantine those infected and those at risk we have a lot of great quarantine facilities for rapidly developing vaccine and they can speak to you the professionals can speak to you about that the vaccine is coming along well and speak into the doctors with like this is something that we can develop fairly rapidly a vaccine for the future and coordinate with the support of our partners we have great relationships with all of the countries that we're talking about some it's fairly large number of countries so much one person and many countries have no problem whatsoever and we'll see what happens but we're very very ready for this for anything whether it's going to be a break out of larger proportions or whether or not where you know we're at that very low level and we want to keep it that way so we're at the low level as they get better we take them off the list so that we're going to be pretty soon at only five people that we could be at just one or two people over the next short period of time so we've had very good luck the Johns Hopkins I guess it is a highly respected great place they did it is still a a study comprehensive the country's best and worst prepared for an epidemic

"You can't tell g story without telling Dartmouth College Story. Dartmouth was really the Institution Matt. Handed time sharing to Ge as both use of those computers and as a way of doing business dartmouth at a very young mathematics department in the late fifty s and early nineteen sixties and several of the faculty including John. Kennedy and Thomas Kurtz had experienced in computing and saw computing as a way to attract really bright math and science students to the college by Nineteen. Sixty two you. They were ready to propose time sharing to the National Science Foundation to get funding to actually build a campus wide and eventually New England Wide Computing Network. That was efficient for the user. They really thought that computing would be a necessary skill for their students in the coming decades. And they saw time sharing as the form of computing that would enable all of their students to gain computing experience and that was revolutionary. That was something that was really not done anywhere else. At the time even at a place like mit which also implemented time sharing or Carnegie Mellon the users were primarily the scientists and engineers whereas at Dartmouth which was a liberal arts college. The users were nearly all of the student bodies have regardless of area of study or previous experience. When Kennedy and Kurtz who were the math professor's leading this project review proposals and really it was the two twenty five in combination with the data net. Thirty that. They saw the way to implement time sharing. They knew the two twenty five would quickly be upgraded. There were already plans for the two thirty five but it was really that combination of the Dana Net. Thirty which could be used to sort of stop the clocks so to speak and enable communications between users and the mainframe to twenty five or to thirty five that the Dartmouth people sort of latched onto in the early nineteen sixty s mainframe. Computers are so expensive that G. E. TO twenty-five computer cost about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Actually as delegation from DARTMOUTH WENT TO G in Phoenix hoping to create a partnership with G. E. saying we the faculty and students. Dr Will Create this time sharing system for you if you give us a two twenty five an Edina net thirty for free. Ge declined that offer but they did give the college a substantial discount. I believe it was a sixty percent discount on the machines. General Electric delivered the two twenty five and the data at thirty two dartmouth in March of nineteen sixty four and two undergraduate students acquired responsibility for actually programming and implementing time sharing using those two computers. Their names were John. Itchy and Michael Bush so Jon. Hagey acquired responsibility for the two twenty five and Michael. Bush had programming ownership on the demon at thirty so they had to figure out how to make their respective machines communicate with each other and they took ownership of those responsibilities in not the machines were known as McGee and Bush and the young men were known as two twenty five and thirty. The two of them took this terribly. Personally it wasn't John's machine and Mike's Machine it was John and Mike who were not responding and they would stand at opposite ends of the room and yell at each other at the top of their voices so I think that's the soul of that machine as these two college students who are so immersed in their enthusiasm for making time sharing work that they become the machines and their personal efforts actually enable literally hundreds of thousands of not millions of other students to access competing in the nineteen sixty s via basic time sharing once it was implemented and New Hampshire those students. Some of them actually went to explain what they had done to the GE engineers and very soon after that GE started marketing time sharing as best and a feature of its computers. Ge sells off. Its ME frame. Business in one thousand nine hundred seventy but it retains its time sharing business for at least another decade well into the nineteen eighties and continues to provide time sharing service to individuals and businesses around the world Over the course of several

"john f. kennedy" Discussed on Conspiracy Theories
"Jim garrison's theory about the JFK assassination could be considered the father of all JFK conspiracies. It's not exactly the first there were conspiracy theories floating around as soon as the gunshot sounded in Dealey plaza on November twenty second nineteen sixty three. But it was the first and only prosecuted case surrounding the assassination. It's also an incredibly sprawling theory that doesn't seem to count anyone out as an accomplice. Meaning that a lot of conspiracy theorists have taken garrison's case as the starting point for their own theories and in nineteen ninety one it was immortalized forever. In all of our stones Oscar winning film, J F K the film, which stone wrote as well as directed follows. Dramatizes? Jim garrison's case stone by propagating the garrison theory in nineteen Ninety-one actually catalyze the president John F Kennedy assassin. Nation records collection act of nineteen ninety two which was established to provide for the expeditious disclosure of records relevant to the assassination of president John F Kennedy so garrison and later stone made an undeniable Mark on the heap of JFK conspiracies. Let's get into what exactly these impactful ideas were conspiracy theory number three JFK was assassinated by a right wing conspiracy involving members of the FBI CIA and the military industrial complex, some important background on this takes us back to JFK's politics. He supported progressive agendas, like desegregation and civil rights and was sometimes accused of being too soft on communism. He had made clear his intention to pull out of yet nam a little more than a month before the assassination. Suffice to say the political, right? Didn't love Kennedy. And that political right included, plenty of people working in historically conservative organizations, like the CIA and the FBI and plenty of people who were part of what is in our had recently dubbed, the military dust real complex in his farewell address in nineteen sixty one just two years before the assassination. Former President Eisenhower gave a famous speech exhorting Americans to be wary of the reciprocal relationship between certain parts of industry and war. Many powerful wealthy industrialists in the country stood and still stand today to gain financially from war by manufacturing weapons and other military supplies. So this brings us to garrisons theory about JFK's assassination. He believed that members of the CIA FBI secret service military industrial complex and anti-castro Cubans with the New Orleans mob, Jack ruby and Oswald himself as their pawns had JFK killed. So as to get the less progressive more pro-war LBJ into the White House into stop withdrawal of American troops from Vietnam. Karasin also implicated LBJ himself as an accomplice after the fact, it's a complicated theory. The details of which garrison himself over time seem to shift back and forth on let's look at some of the key pieces of this theory. I there's David Ferrie. He was the center garrison's investigation. At least at the beginning ferry was a shadowy figure with suspected connections to the mob anti-castro Cubans and the CIA he was always walled civil air patrol commander in New Orleans and had made a suspicious trip to Texas immediately after the assassination very claim the trip was made with the intent of checking out an ice skating rink because he was considering opening one in New Orleans, but according to garrison very made his trip to Texas with the intent of acting as Oswald getaway pilot, but garrison was never able to bring ferry to trial because as we mentioned that the head of this episode four days after garrison's probe went public ferry was dead. The corner reported that he died of natural causes a brain hemorrhage. But the parents sue. Suicide note found in fairies apartment suggested to garrison otherwise the note read quote to leave this life is for me, a sweet prospect, I find nothing in it that is desirable. And on the other hand, everything that is loathsome. And quote garrison believe that fairy felt moved to take his own life move by his own fear of the impending case or perhaps the influence of others. He suggests that ferry overdosed on the drug pro Lloyd, which could have caused the natural looking brain hemorrhage that killed him. But skeptic say that the note found in his apartment isn't even clearly a suicide note, it could have been a free coincidence that he wrote the downtrodden note shortly before he died of natural causes..

"Inevitably to appoint right on top of the secret service car behind the JFK convertible into the A are fifteen in that car. In other words, it must have been a secret servicemen who shot off the top of JFK's head. Donahue examined the testimonies of all the men in the car and determined that the servicemen who shot that shot George Hickey did. So by accident Heiki responded to the sound of fire on the president by jumping up onto the top of his vehicle with an AR fifteen apparently accidentally firing a round at the president in the process, he his own testimony as well as that of other men in the car placed him on top of the car was a gun in his hand at the critical moment. Donahue, also determined that the shot hit the president after he had already been fatally injured by the neck wound. So the servicemen could not be held accountable for the president's death. But this is still a pretty shocking inclusion in members of the secret service have resounding Lee denounced it, although none of the actual men in the follow up car that day came out against the theory. It is shocking. But it helps explain discrepancies in the timeline and path of the bullet shot if you look at the incredibly detailed investigation reporter Bonner men anger makes Donahue's decade-long research in testing on the subject, it becomes very difficult to disbelieve his analysis part of what makes the theory so appealing is the very anti conspiracy, attitude Donahue approaches the whole affair with. Although he does see evidence of a cover up in the strangely conducted presidential. Autopsy the missing archival evidence the loss tests and the shoddy investigation into witness reports of more gunshots fired than the Warren report admits to as more and more assassination related documents were released over the years. We heard about more evidence of strange procedural breaches. With the autopsy this is a report from nineteen Ninety-seven on some of those breaches Gerald Ford says he was just trying to be clear when he change. Key wording in the Warren commission report thirty three years ago Ford edited the report to say the first bullet entered the back of John F Kennedy's neck rather than his uppermost back. This change adds strength to the Commission's conclusion that a single bullet passed through Kennedy and severely wounded, Texas. Governor John Connally if the bullet hit Kennedy in the upper back like the autopsy report says the bullet probably couldn't have hit Connelly to Ford insists the edit was just a clarification, but he never saw the autopsy photos himself had the greenfield Washington, we hear in this report that autopsy documents were edited in doctors were actually denied autopsy photos while riding their reports that's far from standard procedure. So Donahue's theory does implicate members of the secret service, the F B I and potentially others in a cover up after the fact of the assassination, but he doesn't reach for claims without evidence and seems mostly interested in expounding on what he under. Stands so expertly, the ballistics of the case. The theory doesn't address some of the other strangely floating factors of the case. Like oswald's visit to Mexico City. His extremely convenient job at the book depository or some of the stranger elements in oswald's background. But part of what's so convincing about the theory is how specific it is. It could easily be paired with many of the other theories that are out there, which tend to focus more on who Oswald might have been working with the only major conspiracy idea it contradicts is that. There was a second shooter on the grassy knoll in front of JFK rather than behind him. I give this conspiracy theory in eight out of ten it doesn't answer all possible questions about the assassination. But the ones that does take on it answers in thorough scientific way that is hard to pick apart. It's a little less conspiratorial than our final theory. But. I'd like to hazard that we could pair it with this last idea and come up with our own perfect theory. Get ready for a bit of a wild ride after this..

"And if you enjoy the podcast the best way to do that is to leave a five star of you wherever you're listening. This is our second and final episode on the conspiracy theories surrounding the death of president John F Kennedy last week, we covered the official story of the assassination as. Well, as some of the national distrust and skepticism surrounding that story, particularly in the years after Watergate this week, we talk about the unofficial stories conspiracy theory, number one, communist retaliation Oswald was working for the Cubans or possibly the Soviets for this theory will look into oswald's notorious and mysterious trip to Mexico and consider his time in the Soviet Union as well conspiracy theory number two, the accident theory, the tragic possibility that at least one of the shots, which hit Kennedy was accidental. And that this accident was covered up after the fact by the FBI secret service and others conspiracy theory number three the C I A with the aid of the FBI, the mob anti-castro Cuban groups and the military industrial complex banded together to assassinate JFK and use. Ause walled as their Patsy while try to piece together how this mysterious powerful right wing cabal might have operated. Gentlemen. We have. Over the violence. We hope that it is unconfirmed. Have to. The president of the United States has been the victim of association. Officially JFK was killed by a lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald, an ex marine and communist sympathizer Oswald was stationed in a sixth floor window of the Texas school book depository his place of employment. His rifle blasted three shots down onto Dealey plaza. As the presidential motorcade passed by hitting the president in the head and back which resulted in his neck wound as well as injuring Texas governor, John Connally, an hour and a half later Oswald was in custody and two days later, he was dead shot by distraught nightclub owner, Jack ruby. But conspiracy theories about the assassination started emerging in the immediate aftermath of November twenty second to quell fears of conspiracy. The new president Lyndon B Johnson signed an executive order establishing the Warren commission, which was tasked with formulating official public account of the death. But the commission did little to quiet the rumors floating around the country and polls regularly turned up majority doubt about the war and reports conclusion to date there have been over one thousand books published on the Jeff Kassanje Shen over ninety percent of which proposed some sort of conspiracy. According to ABC news that makes it probably the most written about conspiracy theory of all time or rather conspiracy theories what few of these books can agree on is who exactly was behind the assassination and how that can. Chrissy operated figures in groups as diverse as vice president Lyndon B Johnson the Chicago mob and the so-called umbrella man, a bystander holding in unbrella at Dealey plaza have been pinpointed as potential conspiritors. All of these theories are based on intense scrutiny of the Warren Commission's nineteen sixty four report on the assassination. Some people were satisfied by the eight hundred eighty eight page report, and it's fifteen volumes of up indexes. It gave the appearance of a thorough comprehensive investigation. But plenty of others remain suspicious of it's convenient pre drawn conclusions and lingering and explored evidence. This week. We are going to investigate some of the most viable theories about JFK's assassination. But first, let's revisit some of the factors that have kept so much the public on the side of conspiracy theorists. Whether or not they've personally looked at the evidence surrounding Kennedy's death. There's a psychological element to it surely JFK was a truly beloved figure in this country and abroad, his family was charmed his ideals were progressive and all politics aside. He was fresh in different. It's hard to accept that a figure like that could be killed in such a tragically meaningless way by a lone nut as the press dubbed Oswald at the time surely to bring down someone so monolithic. There must be a monolithic plot. There were more concrete reasons for citizens to distrust, the Warren Commission's conclusions, though, the years following the Commission's. Port were characterized by deep and very justified suspicion of the government in the early seventies. The nation was rocked by the Watergate scandal, which implicated the executive branch FBI CIA. And I r s that scandal was followed by leaks of information about other undisclosed sometimes illegal activity by the CIA, then information about an FBI harassment campaign against Martin Luther King junior in the.

"But apparently it didn't land on the president the motorcade or even the crowds around the motorcade the committee based this conclusion of a second shooter and a fourth shot on newly discovered acoustic evidence of the crime, a Dallas police officer had apparently had an audio recording from the day of the assassination languishing in his office. All these years, the initial acoustic analysts stated that there was a fifty fifty chance that a. Fourth shot had been fired from the knoll. But additional experts gave the odds close to one hundred percent chance and the initial analyst revised his opinion based on their findings. There does seem to be a bit of confusion among the experts, but the final report states with confidence that there was a fourth shot from a second shooter on the knoll. This would mean Oswald wasn't the only person after Kennedy, and perhaps not working alone to the frustration of many the final report failed to answer questions of who was involved in this conspiracy. How it was enacted or what its aims were the committee found insufficient evidence to conclude that the Soviet or Cuban governments anti-castro Cuban groups organized crime groups were involved with the assassination, but it didn't fully refute the involvement of any of these groups either. So besides reversing the Warren Commission's single shooter theory, the house committee didn't accomplish much. Of anything even that one development. If you follow the story a bit further comes more or less to nothing I gallery magazine, article followed by nineteen eighty FBI study. And finally, a nineteen eighty-two study by the National Academy of sciences all analyze the committee's only real piece of evidence for its fourth shot theory. The Dallas police officers radio recording Lee determined that the timing of the gunshots heard on the recording were inconsistent with JFK shooting and the shots on the recording must have actually come from something called crosstalk or interruption from radio waves, essentially, this means that the shots captured on the police radio recording actually happened somewhere else in the city, and we're only caught on this recording. Because of a transmission error just a few years after the house committee report was released. The only real departure gave us from the Warren report was discredited thing. We're left in and even Messier more confusing place, and they'd been in before for one of the most consequential assassinations of the twentieth century, the Kennedy investigations leave a lot to be desired. It's no wonder conspiracy theories of continued to flourish regarding what really happened to JFK. We've given you a taste of what was off about the initial Warren commission investigation, and what was unsatisfying about the follow up probes because it's impossible to get through this official story without noticing the holes in incongruities, but there's plenty more to explore next episode when we dive into the ideas conspiracy theorists have proposed and some of those ideas do seem to wrap up all the loose threads congress left hanging. We aren't endorsing any of these theories just presenting them as possibilities conspiracy theory. Number one Lee Harvey Oswald was working for the Soviets or the Cubans. This theory mainly comes from oswald's time in Russia. His membership in the fair play for Cuba group and from a notorious trip he made to Mexico conspiracy theory number two Oswald shot Kennedy, but one of Kennedy's bodyguards accidentally shot the bullet that exited. It through the top of Kennedy's head something the FBI and CIA covered up after the fact with this one will examine some of the technical aspects of the shooting and the magic bullet theory as the Warren reports ballistics analysis was not so affectionately nicknamed conspiracy theory number three the CIA FBI, the mob anti-castro Cuban groups and the military industrial complex banded together to assassinate JFK and used Oswald as their Patsy there are infinite variations on this theme. But the most widely believed version is probably the one set out by New Orleans DA, Jim garrison and later dramatized in all of her stones nineteen one Oscar winning film. Jeff k it's also the most complicated theory involving a vast cast of characters with different motives next week. We'll discuss these theories and see if. We can do multiple congressional investigations. Couldn't finally get to the truth about what happened to John F. Kennedy..

"At least six people reported seeing Oswald at gun ranges shooting a rifle that appeared to be a man liquor con. Oh, the very gun used to shoot Kennedy with the commission could find no evidence or records to prove all sold was ever there Oswald. Also, reportedly had a rifle fitted with telescopic sight and test drove a Lincoln mercury in the Dallas area. But these alleged sightings are highly improbable since Oswald bought his man liquor Carcano already fitted with a site. And he didn't know how to drive the commission determined at this reported Leo's walled could not have been the Lee Harvey Oswald shot the president in the witnesses were other lying or. Or were mistaken. But why would all these witnesses lie did someone coerce them in an attempt to establish suspicious sightings of walled in and around Dallas before these assoiation if so what was their endgame?

I witness reports it may seem irresponsible on the part of the commission to leave such a big stone unturned, but there's no hard evidence contradicting their suggestion that these reports were either mistaken identification 's random lies or faulty memories, fair point. But in a case this important, how many stones will we find unturned? Let's look at another key figure oswald's killer, Jack ruby. He's an interesting figure in conspiracy. Theorist have definitely looked to him as evidence for their theories. Ruby was reportedly connected to both the mob and the FBI some speculate that Oswald was working with the mob in ruby eliminated him to stop him from talking after he was arrested. According to the commission, the FBI and CIA investigated, both oswald's mob connections in any connection between Oswald and ruby but found no evidence of either the commission was apparently convinced by the word of the law enforcement agencies. But the reports the F B I NCAA were giving the Warren commission. We're later definitely proven to be incomplete. More on that after a quick break. Now back to the story. After the tragic nationally heroin assassination of John F Kennedy in nineteen sixty three. The Warren commission was called together. By new president Lyndon B Johnson to resolve some of the questions surrounding the assassination run a lot of ways the commission raised more questions than it answered the entire investigation, and many of its conclusions were very convenient without being convincingly thorough in the following years conspiracy theorists sifted through the eight hundred eighty eight page report, and it's endless indexes of testimonies spotting suspicious evidence that had been dismissed in spinning their own theories about what might have happened to JFK. Let's dive into some of the public suspicion than emerged in the years. After the Warren report was released in nineteen sixty six three years after JFK's death, nor Orleans district attorney Jim garrison began. Dan, a criminal probe into the assassination. His investigation centered on David Ferrie a shadowy figure with suspected contacts and both the mob and the CIA. He was also Lee Harvey Oswald, civil air patrol commander in New Orleans, and he'd made a suspicious trip to taxes immediately. After the assassination of the Warren commission did look in the ferry interviewing him and a few other of oswald's context New Orleans, but they determine that ferry didn't know Oswald personally in dismissed him as a person of interest, but garrison wasn't so easily convinced he publicly pronounced he was going after the loose ends of the Warren report starting with ferry but four days after garrison went public with the probe fairy. His key suspect turned up dead. The coroner reported that he died of natural causes a brain hemorrhage. But garrison wasn't convinced that the brain Hepburn's was the result of. Natural causes a suicide note was found in fairies apartment part of it. Reads, quote to leave this life is for me, a sweet prospect, I find nothing in it that is desirable. And on the other hand, everything that is loathsome. And quote, it seems very felt moved to take his own life moved by himself, or perhaps by others was murdered or goaded into suicide by either mob or CIA context who could connect into the JFK assassination welfare is death is certainly suspicious garrison's case crash spectacularly without him as a witness while.

"Here's the official story of the assassination of John F Kennedy as it was pieced together by the president's commission on the assassination of president Kennedy generally called the Warren commission, according to the eight hundred eighty eight page report the Warren commission submitted to president Lyndon B Johnson Lee Harvey Oswald, acted alone in shooting president Kennedy on November twenty second nineteen sixty three he installed himself in a sixth floor window of the Texas school book depository his place of employment the window overlooks Dealey plaza, which the presidential motorcade was scheduled to pass through during JFK's trip to the city. Get it. It takes longer. Looks better than we do with you. Appreciate it. You'll welcome cities a great wisdom city just before twelve thirty pm JFK rode in an open convertible limousine with his wife. Jackie Texas, governor John Connally in Connolly's wife Nellie from the book depository window Oswald, shot three bullets from six point five millimeter man, liquor Carcano rifle the first pass to Kennedy's neck and governor Connolly's right side and wrist the second missed entirely the third hit Kennedy's head the commission equivocating about the order of the three shots. But this is their best. Guess it's undisputed that Oswald fired his gun from the book depository window law enforcement agencies found his rifle on the sixth floor of the building covered in his fingerprints with three spent shells nearby at least one witness saw man of Oswald description, aiming a rifle. The fire from the sixth floor window, but it's worth mentioning the lot of other witnesses saw and heard things inconsistent with the Commission's conclusion. Namely that all three shots were fired from the book depository after the shooting Oswald. Immediately fled the book depository. He was next seen forty five minutes later when according to witnesses he shot and killed a Dallas police officer spent shells from that shooting were matched to a pistol owned by Oswald when he was apprehended in a movie theater about an hour and ten minutes after JFK was shot. He had this gun in his possession. He resisted arrest the theater claiming that he didn't know what he was under arrest for anybody. I I haven't haven't been. been. Lawyer. He also Fame's the clean that he was quote, just a Patsy. The commission dismissed this as empty rhetoric but conspiracy theorists have found. This piece of information more meaningful the commission also addressed the shooting of Oswal two days later, my Dallas nightclub owner Jack ruby will Oswald as being scored it from the local police headquarters to county jail on November twenty fourth ruby stepped out from the gathered crowd and fatally shot Oswald in the abdomen. The commission determined that ruby like Oswald acted alone. The stated that ruby had been driven temporarily insane by grief and was acting on the chivalrous impulse to spare. Jackie Kennedy, the pain of testifying against Oswald and his trial oswald's own murder just days after the assassination before he got a chance to explain himself. In court is one of the most suspicious elements of the story if he was working with anyone else he was silenced before he was able to reveal his co conspirators, but it's also possible that Ruby's shooting of Oswald was just as senseless and random as Oswald shooting of JFK, it can be comforting to look for a deeper meaning behind acts of violence, but sometimes murder of passion is just a murder of passion. There are a few other strange factors of the JFK assassination that conspiracy theorist were already latching onto even in the immediate after. Math of the events the national importance of the shooting and the suspicious elements surrounding it motivated Lyndon B Johnson to set up the Warren commission a week after the assassination..
