Arlen Specter and "The Magic Bullet"

Washington D.C and the cable T.V. news-models are abuzz about the defection of Senator Arlen Specter from the Republicans to The Democratic Party. Potentially, this move may give the Dems the sixty votes they need in the Senate to push legislation through unobstructed.

Senator Arlen Specter

What some people may not know, is that Specter is The author of "The Magic Bullet Theory". After the assassination of President Kennedy, Specter was council for the Warren Commission, widely recognized as the instrument of cover-up in the conspiracy to Kill Kennedy. In order for Lee Harvey Oswald to be framed as "The Lone Gunman", Specter devised the theory that one undamaged bullet went through Kennedy, changed directions, exited and entered Governor John Connally, causing multiple wounds in each man. This theory rejects the obvious scenario that there were multiple shooters in a trianglulated fire pattern. Classic military-style ambush.

Trajectory of Magic Bullet

The bullet they claim that did all the damage mysteriously ended up on a hospital gurney in pristine, undamaged condition. Governor Connally years later died with more lead in his leg than is missing from the bullet!

Specter is reported to have coerced a witness to the Kennedy assassination, Jean Hill:

He kept trying to get me to change my story, particularly regarding the number of shots. He said I had been told how many shots there were and I figured he was talking about what the Secret Service told me right after the assassination. His inflection and attitude was that I knew what I was supposed to be saying, why wouldn't I just say it. I asked him, 'Look, do you want the truth or just what you want me to say?' He said he wanted the truth, so I said, 'The truth is that I heard between four and six shots.' I told him, 'I'm not going to lie for you.' So he starts talking off the record. He told me about my life, my family, and even mentioned that my marriage was in trouble. I said, 'What's the point of interviewing me if you already know everything about me?' He got angrier and finally told me, 'Look, we can even make you look as crazy as Marguerite Oswald [Lee Oswald's mother] and everybody knows how crazy she is. We could have you put in a mental institution if you don't cooperate with us.' I knew he was trying to intimidate me.... SOURCE

So perhaps the old conspirator has had a new lease on life, he just beat cancer. Perhaps, like conservative Barry Goldwater, he had a death-bed conversion away from Republican ideals. I have my doubts.
Call me cynical, but after Kennedy, his brother Bobby, Martin Luther King, Watergate, Iran-Contra, the savings and loan scandal of the eighties, nonexistent Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, torture, NSA spying on Americans and the current second Republican Great Depression, I just don't trust the Bastards...

We all seem to think and feel that this type of political manuvering is new.

The historical facts are that this type of stuff existed and has gone on through out our entire history.

Politics has and will always be what it is so why do we talk, write, act, and so on as if this is new stuff and that it is something to surprise us.

Romans did it, greeks did it, and even before...yada yada yada

Charles James said...

Sorry, forgot to say that there is only one way to rid ourselves of politics:

1. Get rid of the ego.
2. Call an emergency meeting of all politicians and lawyers in one central location.
3. Nuke the location.
4. Get rid of the ego cause the next guy who thinks they know better than anyone else will step up and do the same thing.

So, politics, regardless of who is there will always rear its ugly head as long as we all have the human ego :-)

"...Specter devised the theory that one undamaged bullet went through Kennedy, changed directions, exited and entered Governor John Connally, causing multiple wounds in each man..."

Sounds like no big loss for the Republicans... and perhaps a perfect candidate to be one PO's cronies ;-)

Hey DR

You forgot MK Ultra, COINTELPRO, CIA ties to drug dealers in Southeast Asia in the 60's and 70's and Central America in the 80's, the Whitewater Witch Hunt, the Batistas in Cuba and countless other examples.

...I just don't trust the Bastards...There's not a politician alive that I trust completely, and most, I don't trust at all. Party matters very little in this respect. I operate on the assumption that most people seeking power over me and mine are up to no good.

A negative view, perhaps, but it seems to me that history bears it out.

You forgot to mention the assassination of John Lennon.

Believe me, I'm no Beatles fan, but I've heard some strong arguments that his killing was more than just a deranged fan.

They could be right. The same people who would have wanted the Kennedys and King killed also hounded John Lennon.

Except for Ronald Reagan and George Wallace, these "lone nuts" seem awfully partial to taking out liberal icons. And even so, there are people on the far right who would have benefited from Reagan's death. I know Nixon was saved a humiliating loss in a three-way presidential race once Wallace was out of the picture.

If there's give in the stakes or the form, neither of them are doing their jobs correctly. Blistering heat and bitter freezing cold can crack the toughest of concrete. It is advantageous for the customer to compare the prices for an additional dumpster rental from the normal waste removal company against an offer made by a collector that will place a dumpster for a one-time pickup.
