"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up."

“We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought”

I like this quote enough that I have placed it along side my motto on the right side of the blog:

For the greatest enemy of truth is very often not the lie — deliberate, contrived and dishonest — but the myth — persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

- John F. Kennedy, Yale University commencement address (June 11, 1962)

It seems only fair to apply this principle to the death of the one who said it. In that vein I read an interesting article about the JFK assignation assassination. 

I must be careful as the article fits in with my internal filters. I may blog about the CIA's Northwood project, and the Bay of Pigs incident,  which may have caused the Cuban missile crisis.  But this quote really jumped off the page:

E. Howard Hunt, the infamous CIA agent who overthrew the government of Guatemala and worked in the CIA’s anti-Castro Cuban operations, and who later achieved infamy as one of the Watergate burglars, had his deathbed confession revealed by his son in 2007. In his confession, E. Howard Hunt revealed that it was the CIA and Lyndon Banes Johnson who were behind the assassination, and that he, himself, was involved.

Here is a Wired article on the subject of Hunt's confession.

I have heard or read nothing in Andrew Marshal's article, or anywhere else, to indicate a conspiracy of Jewish Satanist Bankers. But that does not mean there are not various conspiracies. There may be. But I am not convinced of any "uber" conspiracy. If you really want to go deep, deep into the weeds, you can read more about Hunt's death bed confession by buying his son's book. I see no reason to go there. 

There are many possiblities. 

1. Hunt lied. (The fact that his son is making money for his confession supports this.)

2. Hunt really was involved. 

3. Hunt lied, but there was still a murder plot, but Hunt was not involved. 

I remain unconvinced by these kinds of things. Hunt telling the truth seems to me to be the least likely option. 

Let’s say that Kennedy was assassinated by Jewish Satanist Bankers. What can you or I do about it? Nothing, absolutely nothing. Your best option is to keep a low profile and separate yourself from Babylon as much as possible. This is the exact strategy I suggest. Reading all these weird books, and ultimately becoming weird yourself, is a waste of time. 

I do have a personal connection to Kennedy. The house I live in was built by an heir to the Hyatt Hotel fortune. He was afraid of assassins so he built a secret bedroom only accessible from a secret passageway. (He was eventually murdered they say, so he may not have been paranoid.) The rumor is that Kennedy clandestinely met Marilyn Monroe in that bedroom—now my bedroom. I may be sleeping in the same bed they slept in.
