CASTROS’ CUBA MILITARY INTERVENTIONS PART 1- KENNEDY’S ASSASSINATION

Cuban_T-55AM2Cuban bloody tyrant Raúl Castro recently denied his country’s involvement in the Syrian civil war. Of course, Raúl Castro may have lied. Barack Obama, who lies constantly, backed up the denial of the Cuban regime.

On October 13, 2015, the University of Miami’s Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies said that General Leopoldo Cintra Frias, Minister of the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces, visited Syria with a group of Cuban military personnel in support of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. The White House has stated that it is not aware of Cuban troops in Syria. If Cuban troops had moved into Syria, it would have been a major embarrassment to President Barack Obama and his failed new Cuban policy. FoxNews.com had published an article on October 14, 2015 called “Top Cuban general, key forces in Syria to aid Assad and Russia.”

The FoxNews article explained that according to military experts Cuba’s army is highly trained and has intervened in many countries throughout the world. Cuban military operatives reportedly have been seen in Syria, where sources believe they are advising the bloody dictator Bashar al-Assad’s soldiers. The Cuban military may be preparing to use Russian-made tanks to aid Damascus in fighting Syrian moderate rebel forces supported by the Obama administration. President Obama had given Cuba a series of illegal unilateral concessions with nothing in returned. The criminal tyrant Raúl Castro has been and continues to be a strong supporter of the Syrian regime.

Cuba has always had a strong alliance first with the Soviet Union and after its split with Russia. Russian dictator Vladimir Putin has intervened with full force in Syria on behalf of its long-term ally dictator Bashar al-Assad. Russian forces are killing and injuring thousands of civilians as they go after the Syrian moderates and not the Islamic State. The Russian deliberate military aggression has provoked that tens of thousands to flee are to Europe. Putin’s perverse agenda is to bring chaos and disruption as well aa financial pain to the United States European nations who are members of NATO.

While the Obama administration was secretly negotiating with the Cuban regime and being assisted by Marxist Pope Francis, the son of Raúl Castro, Coronel Alejandro Castro Espín, went to Moscow on May 19, 2014, to negotiate a military alliance with Putin. The Castro regime wants the U.S. Gitmo naval base to be returned to Cuba most likely to give it to the Russian navy.

Cuban highly trained soldiers are marching on a parade.

Communist Cuba has been a fierce enemy of the United States for decades. It was out of desperation that the Castro brothers sought to normalize relations with the United States on their own terms due to the near bankruptcy of Venezuela. The chavistas could not continue to send free oil indefinitely due to the price of a barrel of oil being less than $50 a barrel and the abrupt collapse of Venezuela’s economy.

Fidel Castro, the Mafia, and Russian KGB agents may have assassinated President John F. Kennedy

President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas. Many books have been written blaming different agencies, nations, and individuals for his death. A Gallup poll conducted in mid-November 2013 indicated that 61% of Americans believed that President John F. Kennedy was killed as a result of a conspiracy and 30% thought Oswald did it alone. In contrast to the conclusions of the Warren Commission, the United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) concluded in 1978 that President Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy.

The HSCA found the findings of the original FBI investigation and the Warren Commission Report to be inaccurate. While agreeing with the Commission that Oswald fired all the shots that caused the fatal wounds to President Kennedy and Governor Connelly, the HSCA concluded that there were at least four shots fired (only three of which could be linked to Oswald) and that there was “a high probability that two gunmen fired at President Kennedy.”

Vice president Lyndon B. Johnson, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and President John F. Kennedy are having breakfast on November 22, 1963, on the day the president was assassinated in Dallas. There is strong evidence that the Mafia and Fidel Castro may have been involved in the killing of President Kennedy.

Seymour M. Hersh, a former investigative reporter from the New York Times and a 1970 Pulitzer Prize winner, wrote a book entitled The Dark Side of Camelot (1997). He explained in his book that President Kennedy stole the 1960 election with the help of the Mafia. In chapter 10 of his book, entitled “The Stolen Election,” the author described a meeting of the president’s father, Joseph P. Kennedy, with the head of the Chicago Mafia, Momo Salvatore or Sam Giancana, in 1959. Joe Kennedy asked Giancana to help elect his son president of the United States. In return, Joe Kennedy promised that his son, once elected, would protect Mafia leaders from prosecution.

Hersh pointed out that the Chicago Mafia also exercised “direct control over mobster and Teamsters Union activities in Cleveland, St. Louis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.” Senator John Kennedy defeated Vice President Richard Nixon in one of the closest election in history. Senator Kennedy won by 118,000 popular votes out of 68 million votes cast in the nation. He carried Illinois by fewer than 9,400 votes.

The head of the Chicago Mafia, Momo Salvatore or Sam Giancana, was shot seven times in his Chicago apartment kitchen on June 19, 1975, shortly before he was scheduled to appear before the Church Committee investigating CIA and Mafia collusion in plots to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.

Hersh pointed out that the Chicago Mafia also exercised “direct control over mobster and Teamsters Union activities in Cleveland, St. Louis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.” Senator John Kennedy defeated Vice President Richard Nixon in one of the closest election in history. Senator Kennedy won by 118,000 popular votes out of 68 million votes cast in the nation. He carried Illinois by fewer than 9,400 votes.

John Rosselli of Las Vegas disappeared when he was called to testify before Senator Church’s Committee on Assassinations. On August 9, 1976, Rosselli’s decomposing body was found in a 55-gallon steel fuel drum floating in Dumfoundling Bay near Miami, Florida.

There was massive fraud in the city of Chicago, which was dominated by Mayor Richard Daley and the Mafia. There was also fraud in other states as reported by Hersh. After the election the author explained that “allegations of vote fraud were eventually filed against Democrats in 11 states.” Hersh pointed out that two grand juries were convened in Chicago after the election. However, they ended up indicting only five lower-level Democratic Party officials for vote buying and vote fraud.

After the election, both President Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy, who was named Attorney General, were fully aware of the Mafia involvement in the 1960 election. Nevertheless, Attorney General Robert Kennedy started to persecute Mafia leaders across the United States. Mafia leaders became very nervous and concerned that they would go to jail and several expressed the need to kill the Kennedy brothers. No Attorney General in history had gone after the Mafia so strongly and placed high-ranking Mafia chiefs in jail including Jimmy Hoffa as Robert Kennedy did. The Mafia was enraged and felt betrayed since they had falsified ballots in many states to help elect President John F. Kennedy.

The CIA had made the poor decision to use mobsters Sam Giancana, the Mafia chief of Chicago; John Rosselli of the Las Vegas Mafia; and Santos Trafficante, Mafia chief of Florida to assassinate the Cuban dictator Fidel Castro prior to the Bay of Pigs invasion. Unknown to the CIA was the fact that Santos Trafficante may have been a double agent and that these mobsters made poor patriots. The Mafia may have considered this foreign intrigue assignment as a joke! The Mafia and Fidel Castro had already reached an understanding and a business agreement to bring drugs to the United States. Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. in his book Robert Kennedy and his Times (1978) wrote: “If Trafficante was indeed a double agent, one can see why Castro survived so comfortably the ministrations of the CIA”.

The Mafia was allied with Fidel Castro since he was fighting the Batista government. After Fidel Castro came to power, he continued to purchase weapons from the Mafia to provide arms to different groups that were trying to overthrow democratically-elected governments in Latin America. Castro also bought from the Mafia state-of-the-art surveillance equipment which he used to crush the opposition and also gave it to the Soviet Union. However, Fidel Castro was very fearful that he could be assassinated by the CIA. Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. in his book Robert Kennedy and his Times (1978) stated: “The Church Senate Committee found evidence of at least eight CIA attempts to kill Fidel Castro from 1960 through 1965 and in 1975 Castro gave George McGovern a least of 25 supposed CIA attempts over the same period”.

Fidel Castro repeatedly warned the United States government of retaliation by his regime for the many attempts against his life. In September 1963, a month before President Kennedy’s assassination, Castro stated the following: “We are prepared to answer in kind. United States leaders should think that if they are aiding in terrorist plans to eliminate Cuban leaders, they themselves will not be safe.” Previously, Castro has stated that the long arm of the Revolution would get those that tried to kill him in the United States. Castro may have acted in self-defense believing that he was facing a great at risk unless he could kill President Kennedy.

Both the Mafia and Fidel Castro had ample reasons to want President Kennedy dead. The Soviet Union during the peak of the Cold War may have wanted to teach the United States a lesson, namely, that the United States should not attempt against the lives of communist head of nations. The Soviet leaders or rogue KGB agents may have been unhappy with the Soviet Union humiliation during the October Missile Crisis of 1962 and may have wanted revenge.

According to Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., John Rosselli told his lawyer, Edward Morgan, that he had learned from sources close to Castro that he had “dispatched teams… to the United States for the purpose of assassinating President Kennedy”. Rosselli later told journalist Jack Anderson of the irony that Fidel Castro used the same members of Santos Trafficante gang in Havana that the CIA was trying to use against him to kill President Kennedy.

Dr. Carlos J. Bringuier wrote to this writer and stated the following: “I had the opportunity to have met four times with Lee Harvey Oswald. The first time was when Oswald tried to infiltrate my delegation of the Directorio Revolucionario Estudiantil (Student Revolutionary Directorate) in the city of New Orleans. The second time was when I confronted him when he had a “Viva Fidel” sign doing a demonstration for the Fair Play for Cuba Committee on Canal Street.

Lee Harvey Oswald

The third time was when at the Second Municipal Court I managed to get the charges against us dismissed and Oswald fined in $10 for disturbing the peace of the city of New Orleans. The fourth time was when on August 21, 1963 we debated over WDSU Radio. After the debate, I gave a press release to the media in the New Orleans and where I asked the people of New Orleans to write their congressman and request a congressional investigation of Lee Harvey Oswald, a confessed Marxist. This debate was three months before he assassinated President Kennedy. In my book, Crime Without Punishment-How Castro Assassinated President Kennedy and Got Away With it, I present the evidence showing Castro’s hands behind the assassination…”

Dr. Carlos J. Bringuier, who met Lee Harvey Oswald four times, wrote the book, Crime Without Punishment-How Castro Assassinated President Kennedy and Got Away With it, blaming Fidel Castro for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Were KGB agents involved in the assassination of President Kennedy?

Neil Tweedie wrote an article titled “The assassination of President John F. Kennedy: the finger points to the KGB” which was published by the London newspaper The Telegraph on October 24, 2012. Tweedie wrote that when Lee Harvey Oswald entered the Soviet embassy in Mexico City on September 28 1963 he was agitated and laid a loaded gun on the table. Oswald wanted the Soviet Union to give him a visa as soon as possible. He said his life was being made intolerable by FBI surveillance and that he, a dedicated communist, wished to return to the arms of Mother Russia. One of the three Soviet KGB agents took the gun and unloaded it before returning it to its owner. They told Oswald that there would be no granting of visa in the near future. Dejected, Lee Harvey Oswald gathered up his documents and departed the Soviet embassy, heading not for his previous home in New Orleans but to Dallas. Fifty-five days later, Oswald would assassinate President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

Tweedie explained that this was the standard version of events, as related by one of the “diplomats” present that day, Oleg Nechiporenko. The other two were Pavel Yatskov and Valery Kostikov. All were, in reality, officers of the KGB. Kostikov was, according to the CIA, attached to Department 13 of the First Chief Directorate, specializing in “executive action” – sabotage and assassination in the Western Hemisphere.

Tweedie said that Robert Holmes wrote a book, A Spy Like no Other, where he suggests that President Kennedy was most likely the victim of a rogue element within the KGB, hardline Stalinists, who were, by training and temperament, incapable of taking the humiliation of Cuba lying down. Holmes is a former diplomat, who served in the British embassy in Moscow between 1961 and 1962. Holmes thinks that Oswald may have acted alone, but he was almost certainly that he was under the control of an outside force. The rogue element within the KGB conspired behind the back of Nikita Khrushchev, the Soviet premier, to take revenge on Kennedy, whose cool but resolute stance, bolstered by overwhelming US superiority in missiles and bombers, had forced the withdrawal of Russian medium-range nuclear missiles from Fidel Castro’s Cuba.

Robert Holmes wrote a book, A Spy Like no Other, where he suggests that President Kennedy was most likely the victim of a rogue element within the KGB.

Robert Holmes wrote in his book the following: “Cuba was a humiliation of the first order for these men. They believed in the Stalinist way of doing things: hit your enemy, and hit hard. Khrushchev and Kennedy didn’t become friends in the wake of Cuba but they were able to see eye to eye, to an extent. They were moving forward, calming the world down. This group within the KGB didn’t want that; they wanted to fight. They thought Khrushchev should actually have fired off atomic weapons, and were devastated when he yielded to American pressure.”

Holmes explained that the spy of the title is Ivan Serov, a pure cold warrior schooled in the purges of the 1930s, when Stalin sent millions to their deaths. Serov had overseen the displacement of hundreds of thousands of people from the Baltic nations in 1941 and the liquidation of countless supposed traitors in the war with Germany.

He was appointed head of the KGB by Khrushchev in 1954 and he played a crucial role in putting down the Hungarian uprising of 1956, supported by his allies Yuri Andropov and Vladimir Kryuchkov. Andropov would go on to lead the KGB and then the USSR from 1982 until his death in 1984. Kryuchkov would attempt to roll back history in 1991 when he presided over an attempted coup against the government of Mikhail Gorbachev. In 1959, Serov was appointed head of the GRU, the Soviet military intelligence. His apparent undoing coincided with the Cuban crisis when a GRU officer, Oleg Penkovsky, was unmasked as a British agent. Penkovsky was executed and Serov disappeared into the shadows. Rumors had it that, unable to cope with his disgrace, he had shot himself. In fact, he lived until 1990.

Ivan Serov was appointed head of the KGB by Khrushchev in 1954 and served until 1959. In 1959, Serov was appointed head of the GRU, the Soviet military intelligence, and served until 1963.

Yuri Andropov was head of the KGB and then the leader of USSR from 1982 until his death in 1984. He may have been involved in the plot to kill President John F. Kennedy.

Holmes believes Serov’s “disgrace” was a front, masking his involvement in an affair of infinitely greater importance than Penkovsky. These three individuals, Serov, Andropov and Kryuchkov, were most likely the architects of a plot to kill Kennedy.

Holmes wrote the following: “These were three stalwarts. They want action. Kennedy is the arch enemy. Something has to be done. Serov would definitely have known Kostikov and would have been able to communicate with him through the KGB system. Kostikov would have kept any orders from Moscow secret, and may have assumed he was involved in an officially sanctioned operation. Oswald? Yes, he may have been erratic and was a focus of suspicion because he had immigrated to the Soviet Union before returning to the US. But when you need an expendable assassin, you have to work with what you’ve got.” How long Oswald had been a Soviet asset, Holmes is not sure. But his treatment in Mexico City that weekend in September 1963 was highly unusual.

Holmes wrote the following in his book: “You would not have had three senior supposed diplomats meeting with a person of no importance on a Saturday morning. The three men were supposed to be playing basketball: KGB versus the GRU. They would not have missed that. If there was some kind of an emergency, one of them may possibly have stayed to talk to Oswald, but Oswald was then a John Doe, a nobody. Yes, he had spent a couple of years in the Soviet Union but he wasn’t anybody special. He had applied on the Saturday morning for a visa that was going to take four months to come through. The answer would have been, ‘Come back on Monday.’ But no, three of them stayed behind to talk to Oswald for up to two hours. For that to happen, he had to be somebody. Immediately after the meeting with Oswald, they sent a classified telegram to Moscow. You don’t do that for someone who walks in for a visa. There was something special going on there.”

Holmes admits he could be wrong, but thinks a rogue element in the KGB is more plausible than Mafia-CIA-Military-Industrial-Complex. However, Holmes is wrong in failing to consider that Fidel Castro and the Mafia could also have collaborated with the rogue element in the KGB.

Holmes pointed out the following: “There’s more than a reasonable possibility. I would say that it is all circumstantial evidence, but if there was evidence that would stand up in court, we wouldn’t be sitting here talking about it. None of the Kennedy assassination theories would stand up in court. Other assassination theories require some kind of leap of faith; with mine, it is only a little step. But Oswald? Erratic, talkative Oswald? Surely he would have told all, had Jack Ruby not pumped a slug into his stomach? If he hadn’t shot Officer J D Tippit after the Kennedy shooting, he may have got away that day, but I’m pretty sure the KGB would have either spirited him back to the Soviet Union or killed him. There’s no way they could have allowed him to be captured.”

Lee Harvey Oswald also visited the Cuban Embassy Mexico City and met with intelligence agents there. Earlier Oswald had defected to the Soviet Union and married the niece of the KGB coronel Marina Oswald. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover knew that Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist and he suspected the Mafia involvement in the assassination. Hoover was also aware that President Kennedy and Sam Giancana shared the sexual favors of a woman who also serves to carry messages between the president and the Mafia leader from Chicago. Hoover also knew from FBI wiretaps of Mafia headquarters, mobsters leaders had angrily wanted President Kennedy dead.

Soviet Union’s disinformation campaign on the Kennedy assassination

Cliff Kincaid wrote an article for Accuracy in Media (AIM) on November 21, 2013 criticizing a PBS documentary on the Kennedy assassination.

Kincaid explained that Lieutenant General Ion Mihai Pacepa’s book, Programmed to Kill: Moscow’s Responsibility for Lee Harvey Oswald’s Assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, examined in detail the KGB’s disinformation Operation Dragon to “throw the blame on various elements in the United States for killing their own president.” He said that over the years, the Soviets have successfully confused many people about their role, blaming the CIA, the Mafia, the right-wing, Texas oil men, or Lyndon Johnson. Anybody but themselves!

Ion Mihai Pacepa was born 28 October 1928 in Bucharest, Romania. He is a former three-star general in the Securitate, the secret police of Communist Romania, who defected to the United States in July 1978, following President Jimmy Carter‘s approval of his request for political asylum He is the highest-ranking defector from the former Eastern Bloc, and has written several books and news articles on the inner workings of the communist intelligence services as well as the Kremlin participation on the assassination of President Kennedy.

At the time of his defection, General Pacepa simultaneously had the rank of advisor to Rumania’s bloody dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu, acting chief of his foreign intelligence service and a state secretary of Romania’s Ministry of Interior. Once in the United States, General Pacepa worked with the CIA in various operations against the former Eastern Bloc. The CIA described his cooperation as “an important and unique contribution to the United States.”

Once in the United States, General Pacepa worked with the CIA in various operations against the former Eastern Bloc. The CIA described his cooperation as “an important and unique contribution to the United States.”

Lt. General Ion Mihai Pacepa was the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence official ever to defect to the West. Pacepa along with his co-author, historian and law professor Ronald Rychlak, expose the Russian-born science of disinformation. Here the reader will discover answers to many crucial questions of the modern era: How much of the world came to believe that the U.S. government itself masterminded the assassination of President John F. Kennedy? Why have radical Islam, jihad and terrorism burst aflame after a long period of apparent quiescence? Why is naked Marxism increasingly manifesting in America and its NATO allies? What really happened to Russia after the Berlin Wall came down?

Disinformation provides the missing dimension that makes the chaos of the modern world finally understandable. By its very nature, a disinformation campaign can work only if the seemingly independent Western press accepts intentionally fabricated lies and presents them to the public as truth. Pacepa and Rychlak also document how the U.S. mainstream media’s enduring sympathy for all things liberal-left has made it vulnerable to–indeed, the prime carrier of–civilization-transforming campaigns of lying, defamation and historical revisionism that turn reality on its head.

In Disinformation, you’ll discover how the defamatory attacks on American soldiers John Kerry made before Congress upon his return from Vietnam–charges later discredited and repudiated–were identical to a contemporaneous KGB disinformation campaign concocted to turn Americans against their own leaders. The book explained how supposedly respectable institutions like the World Council of Churches have long been infiltrated and controlled by Russian intelligence. How the Soviet Union has been transformed into the first intelligence dictatorship in history. How disinformation is still very much alive in the age of Obama, remaining a powerful engine in the ongoing socialist transformation of America.

Cliff Kincaid pointed out that one of the lies was that Lee Harvey Oswald went to the Soviet embassy in Mexico City to get a Russian visa so that he could then travel to Cuba. In fact, General Pacepa stated that Oswald met with Valery Kostikov outside the embassy, in order to discuss Kennedy’s murder.

In an interview with Accuracy in Media, Pacepa discussed the poor and inaccurate media coverage of the anniversary of the Kennedy assassination. Pacepa said that the Soviets promoted the report that Oswald went to the Soviet embassy in Mexico City to cover his “iron meeting” outside the embassy with Kostikov.

Pacepa explained the following: “Documents obtained by the Warren Commission prove that during that trip to Mexico City Oswald met a Soviet diplomat, but the meeting was secret, outside of the Embassy. The problem is that, in order to understand those documents, one should be familiar with the KGB super-secret technique of the ‘iron meeting,’ a standard intelligence procedure for emergency situations, with ‘iron’ meaning ironclad or invariable.” That “diplomat” was in fact Valery Kostikov, an officer of the KGB’s department for assassinations abroad, who was assigned under diplomatic cover to the Soviet embassy in Mexico City.

Pacepa explained the facts about the meeting were found in various effects left behind in the garage of Ruth Paine, an American at whose house Oswald spent a critical weekend. A photocopy of a letter Oswald sent to the Soviet embassy was recovered by the Warren Commission and referred to “Comrade Kostin.”

Pacepa said “The fact that Oswald used an operational codename for Kostikov confirms that both his meeting with Kostikov in Mexico City and his correspondence with the Soviet Embassy in Washington were conducted in a KGB operational context. The fact that Oswald did not use his real name to obtain his Mexican travel permit confirms this conclusion.”

Kincaid wrote the following: “Pacepa noted that a Mexico City guide book and a Spanish-English dictionary were found among Oswald’s effects after the assassination. The guide book included the Soviet embassy’s telephone number underlined in pencil, the names “Kosten” and “Osvald” noted in Cyrillic on the page listing “Diplomats in Mexico,” and check marks next to five movie theaters on the previous page. Oswald wrote on the back of his Spanish-English dictionary, “buy tickets for bull fight,” and the Plaza México bullring is encircled on his Mexico City map. Also marked on Oswald’s map is the Palace of Fine Arts, a favorite place for tourists to assemble on Sunday mornings to watch the Ballet Folklórico. Pacepa told AIM these facts strongly suggest that Oswald resorted to an unscheduled or “iron meeting” for an urgent talk with Kostikov in Mexico City. Summarizing the evidence of the meeting, he says a brief encounter was held at a movie house to arrange a meeting for the following day at the bullfights, a brief encounter took place in front of the Palace of Fine Arts to pass Kostikov one of the bullfight tickets Oswald had bought, and a long meeting was held at the Sunday bullfight.”

Pacepa told AIM that “We cannot be sure that everything happened exactly that way—every case officer has his own quirks,” Pacepa says. “But it is clear that Kostikov and Oswald did secretly meet over that weekend of September 28-29, 1963. The letter to the Soviet embassy that Oswald worked so hard on irrefutably proves that.”

As it has been explained earlier, President Johnson’s did a cover-up of the perpetrators of the Kennedy assassination. Pacepa agreed with this shameful cover-up and stated that “the purpose of the Warren Commission was not to investigate the assassination, but rather to invoke the integrity and long experience of its distinguished members in issuing a report designed to calm the populace and dispel all rumors of foreign complications stemming from Oswald’s known connections with the Soviet Union and Cuba.”

Kincaid wrote that this was confirmed by former FBI agent Herman Bly, who reviewed CIA files on the assassination, including evidence of Oswald’s meeting with Kostikov, and wrote, “…I believe the heads of the FBI, CIA, and President Johnson wanted the Oswald case brought to a conclusion as fast as possible as they did not want another crisis with the Soviet Union so soon after the Cuban missile crisis.”

“Sadly,” Pacepa stated, “we are now commemorating 50 years since the killing of a widely admired American president. Let’s hope that all those who are still trying to make a name for themselves by building fantasies around this national drama will stop. It is time for the truth, not for more fantasy books.”

Kincaid concluded his article by stating the following: “Actually, the case is closed. The communists killed Kennedy. But because of the media’s love affair with Castro, as I point out in this column, liberal reporters can’t bring themselves to admit the truth. It is a triumph of bias over facts and evidence that leaves many people still in the dark about the murder of an American president.”

On December 29, 2015, Cliff Kincaid wrote an article entitled “Is Trump the New Armand Hammer?” which was published in Accuracy in Media. As stated earlier. Kincaid is a strong anti-communist, has an excellent TV program, and is an author of many outstanding books.

Kincaid pointed out the following: “Major factors in this disturbing trend among the conservative media include Russian propaganda organs like RT (Russia Today) in the United States and the work of Russian trolls in spreading disinformation. Some of these trolls are self-described American conservatives who openly cite RT as a credible source of information.”

Kincaid wrote that doing business deals in Russia can be lucrative, but also very dangerous. Bill Browder’s book on Putin’s Russia, Red Notice, exposed how dictator Putin, his old KGB comrades, organized crime, and a select group of billionaires are looting the country. Browder is the grandson of Earl Browder, former head of the Communist Party USA. Browder believed in the promise of a modern and democratic Russia and invested heavily in that country. But his assets were stolen and his lawyer murdered.

Kincaid believes that Trump may be similar to Armand Hammer. This writer remembers, along with many conservatives, about sleazy billionaire businessmen Armand Hammer, a Soviet agent of influence, who wanted Americans to do business with Russia. Hammer was very close to all the Kremlin leaders.

Edward Jay Epstein wrote a biography of the CIA agent James Jesus Angleton who believed the Soviet Union was involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In his new biography of James Jesus Angleton, Edward Jay Epstein answers the question: was Angleton right after all about penetrations in the CIA? Angleton was the legendary head of CIA counterintelligence during most of the Cold War.

He was ridiculed in the media, Congress, and in the CIA itself, when his mole hunt failed to find a spy in the CIA. Investigative journalist Edward Jay Epstein tells of his rise, fall, and the astounding revelations that emerged in the CIA after his death. Epstein spent hundreds of hours interviewing him to understand the mind of this unique mind warrior.

Epstein also was one of the few journalists to interview his arch nemesis: Yuri Nosenko. In this extraordinary book, he sets out to answer a single question: Was Angleton right that the CIA had been penetrated? Along the way we also learn much about the CIA and KGB during the cold war years, including: Why KGB defector Yuri Nosenko was imprisoned by the CIA? What was Angleton’s role in the CIA assassination plots against Castro? How the CIA allowed the KGB to disinform two Presidents? What weaknesses KGB spies Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen exposed in the CIA?

Michael Wolff, USA Today, stated the following: “Edward Jay Epstein is the first journalist to have investigated the official accounts of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He remains the only one to have interviewed all the members of the Warren Commission, and would go on to be one of the great investigative journalists of the era.”

KGB operative provided disinformation to Roger Stone, a long-term Trump adviser who is in charge of Trump’s Super PAC.

Kincaid believes that Trump’s strange views about Russia may reflect information he has received from Roger Stone, a former Trump adviser, who wrote co-author a book, The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ (2014) absolving the Russians and Cubans of playing a role in Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Stone’s book, heavily promoted by Russia Today and the Voice of Russia, blamed then-Vice President Lyndon Johnson for John F. Kennedy’s murder, using a KGB operative named Joachim Joesten as a source. Joesten was assigned by the Soviet KGB to divert attention from the communist connections of Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, a member of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee who was an avid consumer of communist publications such as The Worker and The Militant.

Kincaid explained that Roger Stone started a pro-Trump Super PAC called the Committee to Restore America’s Greatness. Stone stated the following: “I have been friends and worked with Donald Trump for 37 years, since we met in Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign. I chaired Trump’s Presidential Exploratory Committee in 2000 and wanted him to challenge Mitt Romney in 2012.” Mitt Romney was very aware of the threat that Russia presented and during the 2012 campaign he said that Putin was the number one geopolitical threat to the United States and the West. Marxist Obama had dismissed Romney as a throwback to the Cold War.

Kincaid wrote that Stone’s main targets appear to be Senator Marco Rubio and “The Establishment.” He said that “Any other Republican presidential candidate with a realistic view of Russia is a possible threat to Trump—and to Putin.”

The article on Newsweek Magazine

Newsweek magazine had a very lengthy special investigative report article written by Evan Thomas on President Kennedy’s assassination which was published on November 22, 1993. Thomas also wrote that Lee Harvey Oswald visited the Soviet Union Embassy in Mexico City in September 1963. Oswald met with the senior KGB agent Valery Kostikov assigned to the 13th Department in charge of sabotage and assassination in the Western Hemisphere. As previously indicated, Oswald also met with two other KGB agents, Oleg Nechiporenko and Pavel Yatskov.

Thomas explained that President Lyndon B. Johnson, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, Chief Counsel to the House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) Robert Blakey, and CIA official James Angleton all suspected Fidel Castro’s involvement in the assassination of the president. Thomas wrote the following: “Lyndon Johnson, who was conspiratorial himself, always suspected that the Cubans were behind the assassination. Indeed, he feared that the Cubans might try to kill him. Just in case, Johnson took steps to warm relations with Castro, easing travel restrictions to Cuba only three weeks after the assassination. That winter, he called all of the CIA’s attempts to destabilize the Castro regime with sabotage”.

President Johnson was concerned that if the American public found out of the possible involvement of Fidel Castro in President Kennedy’s murder, Americans would have demanded an immediate invasion of Cuba to capture or kill the Cuban dictator. President Johnson feared that the United States invasion of Cuba, especially after the Kennedy-Khrushchev agreement reached during the October Missile Crisis of 1962, could involve the United States in a war with the Soviet Union. It is for this reason than President Johnson engineered the cover-up of the Warren Commission and its subsequent report, which as we know today, was full of lies.

Thomas pointed out that a few weeks after the assassination, Robert Kennedy told his friend Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. that he feared that his brother has been killed by the Mafia or the Cubans. Later, he told Assistant Attorney General Nick Katzenbach the following: “What difference did it make now? Jack was dead; nothing would bring him back”.

Thomas wrote that within the CIA, James Jesus Angleton “spent years obsessing about a communist plot to kill Kennedy.” He wrote the following: “Angleton speculated that the Cubans murder Kennedy, perhaps at the behest of the Kremlin. But he had no real proof.”

Thomas explained that Robert Blakey, Chief Counsel of the Select Committee on Assassinations, continues to insist that “leaders of organized crime were behind the president’s murder.” He pointed out the following: “Blakey believed that the motive was to get Bobby Kennedy off the mob’s back. Ruby was recruited by the mob to silence Oswald”.

This writer own investigation and research leads him to conclude that more than likely President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by the bloody dictator Fidel Castro and the U.S. Mafia. Among those involved were Momo Salvatore or Sam Giancana, the Mafia chief of Chicago; John Rosselli of Las Vegas Mafia; Carlos Marcello, the Godfather of the New Orleans Mafia; and Santos Trafficante of Florida, a former syndicated chief in Havana. Seymour M. Hersh and Evan Thomas do not agree with this writer’s conclusion.

Sam Giancana and John Rosselli were called to testify before Senator Church’s Committee on Assassinations. On the night of June 19, 1975, a gunman was invited to enter Giancana’s apartment and later the assassin shot him in the back of his head as Giancana was frying sausage and peppers. After Giancana fell to the ground, the gunman turned him over and shot him six more times in the face and neck. Giancana was killed shortly before he was scheduled to appear before the Church Committee investigating CIA and Mafia collusion in plots to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.

John Rosselli disappeared and did not appear before Senator Church’s Committee on Assassinations. On August 9, 1976, Rosselli’s decomposing body was found in a 55-gallon steel fuel drum floating in Dumfoundling Bay near Miami, Florida. At the behest of some members of the Senate United States, Attorney General Edward H. Levi instructed the FBI to find out if Rosselli’s earlier testimony regarding the CIA plot to assassinate Castro may have led to his murder. Only Carlos Marcello and Santos Trafficante remained alive at that time. Trafficante died in 1987 and Marcello in 1993.

Santos Trafficante may have been a double agent working with the Cuban regime and he may have participated in the assassination of President Kennedy. He died in 1987.

Only Carlos Marcello and Santos Trafficante remained alive at that time. Trafficante died in 1987 and Marcello in 1993.

Carlos Marcello (1910–1993) was selected as the Godfather of the New Orleans Mafia by the family’s capos of the New Orleans crime syndicate and the National Crime Syndicate.

Marcello held this position for the next thirty years. In his 1994 autobiography, Frank Ragano said that he relayed a message from Jimmy Hoffa to Marcello and Santo Trafficante, the Mafia boss of Florida, asking the two Mafia bosses if they would kill Kennedy.

On March 24, 1959, Marcello appeared before a United States Senate committee investigating organized crime. Serving as Chief Counsel to the committee was Robert F. Kennedy. His brother, Senator John F. Kennedy, was a member of the committee. In response to committee questioning, Marcello invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer any questions relating to his background, activities, and associates.

The House Select Committee on Assassinations said that it recognized Jack Ruby‘s murder of Lee Harvey Oswald as a primary reason to suspect organized crime as possibly having involvement in the assassination. In its investigation, the HSCA report stated the following: “The presence of credible associations relating both Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby to figures having a relationship, albeit tenuous, with Marcello’s crime family or organization. The committee found that Marcello had the motive, means and opportunity to have President John F. Kennedy assassinated, though it was unable to establish direct evidence of Marcello’s complicity.”
