The birth of the Critical Race Theory (CRT) Allies was made possible by the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Because of it they were able to pervert Affirmative Action into a program to mint a new currency of Identity Claims to be used in purchasing the loyalties of countless Americans by turning them into hyphenated-citizens. Additionally, the coup that robbed the nation of its president’s second term ushered in a new executive branch unseen by the American public that would also exert control in the Judicial and Legislative arenas, and even have the power to declare, and conduct, wars in their name. The CRT Allies were the Neo-Communists continuing to fashion the Communist traps such as those used so well in the Korean and Vietnam wars. They were designed for America to step in in order to slowly bleed her; to reduce her strength financially, and morally. To fully understand the coup Americans have been living under since 1963, it is necessary to look at the circumstances that brought it about.
In 1961 the U.S. began deploying a missile squadron of 15 Jupiter MRBM nuclear missiles in Turkey that were aimed at Russia. Although under the guise and umbrella of the shared responsibility of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), they were, of course, owned and operated by the United States Air Force (USAF). The deployment of nuclear missiles is always risky business. Some of the same missiles that were also stationed in Italy against Russia at the time were nearly detonated on the ground by lightning strikes. After only four of such strikes, that included warheads being activated with ‘boost gas,’ the USAF employed the protection of secret Dissipation Array Systems, or lightning strike-diversion towers. These missile bases themselves were top secret, so nobody knew about them except, eventually, the Russians.
The distance between Turkey and Russia is 236 miles. The distance from Havana, Cuba, to Miami, Florida, is 230 miles, and with Cuba’s flamboyant Fidel Castro hopping up and down to obtain a station of Soviet nuclear missiles for himself, and threatening to turn to China to get them, the Russians finally decided that turn around was fair play. Thus ensued 13 days of intense and secret negotiations, whereupon the U.S. removed their missiles from Turkey and Italy, and Russia removed their missiles from Cuba (no one then knowing of the American concessions). Nuclear war had been averted with only a few knowing how close we’d really come.
After the Communist revolutionary was rocketed to international fame by the Cuban Missile Crisis, which Kennedy subsequently solved through diplomacy, the Cuban leader still emerged as the world renown poster boy for those who would romanticize the otherwise dark reality of totalitarian Communism. With his flashing personality, adventurous use of army fatigues, dark hair, and black beard, he had tapped into the growing rebellious nature of 1960’s counter culture.
Even as the decade of the 60’s began, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had already been plotting the Communist dictator’s ouster. The failed assassination plots to take out Castro provide an opportunity to examine Mafia culpability in the assassination of President Kennedy, and would at least be a scenario President Johnson would have evaluated. One way, or another.
The Mafia’s desire to reassert themselves in Cuba came from Castro having previously expropriated the Mafia casinos in Havana and thus costing them millions in profits, even ruining some mob bosses. It is common, actually necessary, for the agency to employ characters of variable fibers, or ‘cutouts,’ to formulate their intricate designs and put them on the ground in hostile territory.
With a hit crew assembled by the mob and supported by the agency, the latter would be insulated, and the mob would obtain an ace up their sleeve for use against the president’s brother, Robert Kennedy, Attorneys General, who was running a campaign against organized crime.
For sure, the assassination plot against Castro was an elaborate agency undertaking with a huge network of actors supported by government resources. The plotting to assassinate Castro was so extensive that, had all of the schemes come to fruition, the CIA would have delivered to the world stage a previously hallucinating, now bald, close-shaved, poisoned, stabbed, harpooned, and or shot, corpse for public viewing. Definitely, the ingredients of lure for snack foods manufacturers that included decoder rings in their snack food boxes.
Planning for assassinations at the CIA begins after targets are selected. Teams get busy plotting by testing and proposing schemes. When schemes grow legs, they are walked over to the planning department to become part of the plot.
In addition to usual high-powered rifles with telescopic sights, the agency operatives explored a variety of means to carry out the hit on Castro. These included; poisoned pills (tested on guinea pigs), lethal cigars, ballpoint pens rigged as hypodermic syringes containing poisons (e.g. Black Leaf 40), gifting the leader a booby-trapped skin-diving suit, and even planting booby-trapped sea shells delivering poisons through pin pricks (for which the study of mollusks was undertaken).1
There is even an extra curricula, controversial, exposé linking the CIA operation with an interest taken in facilitating the dictator’s death by injecting him with a newly discovered cancer-causing virus.2 The agency was thorough, casting a broad net over what they wanted, and what they could achieve.
In contingencies that settled, in the short term, for only permanently tarnishing Castro’s image, schemes included releasing aerosols containing LSD (a psychedelic drug) at his radio station during his live broadcasts, providing him with similarly treated cigars to “produce temporary personality disorientation,”3 and placing depilatory (hair removing) powder in his shoes to be absorbed through the skin “to destroy Castro’s image as ‘The Beard’ by causing the beard to fall out.”4
These details were divulged in 1999 from a CIA internal Report on Plots to Assassinate Fidel Castro, concluded in 1967. What is perhaps most important to note from the standpoint of prosecuting the Mafia as the suspect in the Kennedy assassination is that the report reveals CIA conspiring Mafia boss Sam Giancana “was flatly opposed to the use of firearms” as “no one could be recruited to do the job, because the chance of survival and escape would be negligible”5 (it will be remembered that Oswald didn’t escape, and he didn’t survive).
The CIA plots to assassinate Castro disintegrated with Kennedy pulling the plug on the endeavor after finally becoming disgusted with the full scope of other unsanctioned plans the CIA had in view for following the assassination with a full military war with Cuba. For example, Operation Northwoods consisted of a bundle of plots for staged terrorist attacks on American civilians, and included one of shooting down a civilian plane filled with cadavers over America, and blaming Cuba for the attacks as an excuse to invade the island. These sorts of staged endeavors aimed at provocation are referred to as false flags.
The ensuing fall-out between Kennedy and the CIA over the president’s reversal, and cancellation of other aggressive agency plots, had resulted early on in the president dismissing CIA Director Allen Dulles.
And here is where we find out why Kennedy was assassinated, and thus by ‘who’ he was assassinated. It turns out the CIA had already graduated, class of 1953, in Iran with a PhD in coup d’état, and they weren’t about to reverse their tassels and return their diplomas. Sitting in the stands that day for the commencement ceremony were both the American president, and the British prime minister.
At the end of World War II, America and the United Kingdom emerged as even stronger allies. A British petroleum company had built the world’s largest refinery in Iran, and paid its government royalties on the oil. Iranian Prime Minister Mosaddegh, democratically elected, requested an open book audit of the company, and the company refused, whereupon the Iranian parliament voted to nationalize the refinery and expel the British. The British considered its military option, but tried an economic boycott. The Communist party in Iran, vacillating pro and con, came to the side of Mosaddegh long enough to be the only spark required to seal his fate. As it happens, the USSR had made overtures, or undertures in clandestine terms, to purchase Iranian oil for themselves.
The stage was therefore set for a Brotherhood of loose interpretations; of laws, Constitutional separation of powers, and even the Bible itself.
Allen Dulles became Director, CIA, in 1953. He had a brother named John Dulles that had been a special advisor to President Truman. John had made a name for his self in defending Reverend Harry Emerson Fosdick, who, having embraced the Historical-Critical method of interpreting the Bible as a living document to continually be reassessed in light of new discoveries, particularly in science, was charged with heresy. It is easy to understand the contention and the charge, as the new method ostensibly implied that nothing, neither laws nor precepts, and not even the ten commandments, were written in stone. John had previously pitched the idea of a coup in Iran to Truman, no doubt with the siren of rising communism and Soviet expansion, but Truman, raised in the Baptist Church, was opposed to thwarting the orderly democratic process, especially with violence that could lead to murder, and he was concerned the action would completely unleash the CIA; leaving the agency to their own discretion in ruling the world as de facto commanders in chief over the U.S. military; including the employment of assassinations (which the agency would later re-nomenclate “executive actions”).6
In August of 1953, Dewight D. Eisenhower was president, and he would make Truman’s John Dulles his Secretary of State. Together with his brother Allen as Director, CIA, The Dulles brothers made the pitch again, and not only did Eisenhower receive it (which misgivings over he would later seem to indicate in his Fairwell Address), but Winston Churchill also green lighted the CIA plan for a coup d’état in Iran. Thus empowered, with backing from two military powers if need be, the CIA went to work. The agency bused in protestors and rioters into the city of Tehran, armed the opposition, and a few hundred were killed, Mosaddegh and his supporters were thrown in jail, and the Shah was installed as a monarch to reign for the next 26 years.
In addition to the Dulles brother’s success at legitimizing the agency’s authority to establish foreign policy, and enforce it by covert, violent means as necessary, it also established the CIA as the authority under whom presidents would serve out their terms, coming and going as these rulers tolerated them. Future Presidential briefings would consist only of details which the CIA deemed beneficial to the agency’s aims and purposes, and communiqués of those presidents would be altered as necessary. This is the CIA the president would encounter in 1960.
John F. Kennedy was sworn in as the 35th president on January 20, 1961. President Kennedy had served as a Lieutenant Commander of a Patrol Torpedo boat in WWII. On a pitch-black night, it was rammed and split in two by a Japanese destroyer. The survivors opted not to become prisoners of war and beginning at just past 2:30 in the morning swam three and a half miles to an island, with Kennedy towing one of the wounded by his life jacket strap clenched in his teeth. The military high command of advisors to U.S. Presidents were officially designated the Join Chiefs of Staff (JCS) in February 1942, and consisted of Admirals and Generals representing the several branches of military. They served under two presidents that waged the war to victory, and then under President Eisenhower, former Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force who was instrumental in making that victory possible. Although Kennedy was awarded the Purple Heart, and recognized for extremely heroic conduct, the JCS resented serving under the Lieutenant who was adored by the public as a war hero. It didn’t take long for the feeling to become mutual. Kennedy distrusted the high command, viewing them as making decisions effecting faceless men in far off places, in situations they did not grasp, and as having exceeded their authority to govern.7 His desire was to return that power to civilian authority.
Kennedy had proven his opposition to CIA influenced military campaigns by turning down the JCS earnest recommendations to invade Cuba on three occasions. In 1961, he declined to support the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuban freedom fighters with U.S. military (an invasion we now know was a CIA plot to force him to commit those forces). In 1962, he prevented Operation Northwoods (q.v.), and then he disregarded their urging to invade Cuba to solve the missile crisis. The JCS were reportedly outraged at Kennedy on all these fronts, and especially when he solved the missile crisis diplomatically, agreeing to remove American nuclear missiles aimed at Russia. This was against the JCS wishes. They believed they could prosecute a military solution and extinguish a nearby Communists government, without risk of nuclear war with Russia.
Kennedy’s subsequent decision in 1963 to stand down the military, and the CIA, to prevent a large-scale military campaign in Vietnam, however, was the last straw for the Military Industrial Complex (MIC), and sealed Kennedy’s fate. It has been postulated that it was, instead, his three strikes on military intervention in Cuba that struck him out, but there would appear to be at least two sequiturs problematic with that theory.
Firstly, Johnson’s subsequent and immediate turnaround on Vietnam seems to indicate that he followed directions and got with the JCS war making program as instructed to him. Secondly, with Kennedy out of the way and Johnson obviously following orders, reversing Kennedy’s withdrawal orders in a matter of days after taking office, there was no subsequent invasion of Cuba.
It is true that it eventually came to light that the Russians had deployed battle field nukes in Cuba of the type and scale for use against the invading Americans, and had standing orders to use them in that case, but this was not discovered until decades later, and not known in the immediate aftermath of Kennedy’s assassination.
The insight into all of this behind-the-scenes drama we have today forces a monumental retrospect in our understanding of what actually transpired, and didn’t transpire, during Kennedy’s presidency. It means that with what we now know, Kennedy actually kept America from starting what would have certainly, and quickly, escalated into widespread thermonuclear warfare, or WWIII, by not allowing us to be lured into stepping into that trap. A catastrophe that hindsight shows the Military Industrial Complex – elements in the Pentagon, defense contractors, and intelligence agencies – were poised to step in, and were thankfully prevented from doing so by Kennedy. Even if it were only due to the limited resources and logistics that prevented the MIC from simultaneously igniting Cuba after being given their Vietnam, the fact that they were initially prevented from doing so is probably why these words exist, and why they may be used to speculate: President John F. Kennedy saved the world.
