I just viewed this a couple of times these past couple of rainy days here. i wish I could've met this man before he passed. I never knew until now he gave this interview and a couple of others.

Prouty alludes to a lot here and he's no fool. If he was convinced there was more to the JFK fiasco than LHO being the sole player then I know my instincts have not lied to me.

Here's one of the two links I spoke of above. If you've seen this I recommend watching it again because it is informative in ways most folks don't even know to think.

Here's the second link I was intending to post.

This is the only video of this researcher. With the exception of the fact he points out Malcolm Wallace's print being discovered and verified on one of the 6th, floor book boxes, he doesn't give a lot of solid evidentiary facts but the circumstantial material he provides is indeed quite interesting. I've always appreciated it when a researcher also focuses on the Tippitt murder.

Again, if you've seen this before you might enjoy watching it again as if you're like me you catch a little more each time you view something.

Roger Stone has gone on about Mac Wallaces print before. I'm not convinced because it's not widely talked about but by researchers and I've never seen any solid evidence of its existence. Prouty is interesting but I'd recommend the link below. To get as far as they did at that time with the obstacles in front of them was amazing quite frankly.

If it pleases the Court we will continue!

I am happy to dovetail into the ongoing presentation of documentation the work of one excellent JFK researcher Lisa Pease. With it, we will return to Cuba. The nation is also one of the group of countries across the Earth which fell into the target area of the Great American Combination for exploitation of valued raw minerals/resources. A slight difference being we did not have to have an invitation of say: the French, as in Indochina, or the Dutch, as in Indonesia, or the Belgians, as in the Congo. The great American Empire was already there. With Cuba having a rich history setup of a string of pro American dictators, fueling the Empire with foreign monopolies over the Cuba people, along with rich tax breaks.

Let's enter parts of Lisa Pease's important article: DAVID ATLEE PHILLPS, CLAY SHAW, AND FREEPORT SULPHUR. It was published at PROBE MAGAZINE Vol 3 March/April, 1996:

"The Castro Government wanted to end the special tax exemption. Freeport wanted to keep it. By March of 1960, Freeport Nickel (parent of Moa Bay Mining, a subsidiary of Freeport Sulphur) threatened the Cuban Government with an ultimatium: if their (Freeport Companies) special tax status was revoked, the Moa Bay and the Nicaro Nickel facilities would be shut down. Freeport knew that Cuba needed the jobs and even partial income that the Freeport Nickel companies provided. Freeport must have thought it could bluff this on though, largely due to the particular quality of the Moa Bay ore (nickel). This ore was an unusual combination of cobalt and nickel, elements which needed to be separated through a highly complex chemical process (the Cubans did not have this ability), handled at the time by Freeport's Noreen's Processing Plant (New Orleans, LA). Industries observers were quoted as saying the best thing Cuba could do was to negotiate (with Castro) a compromise. Deliberations with the new Cuban government fell apart in August of 1960.

Let's continue with Lisa Pease ruminations:

"Cuba ended up retaining the plants (Freeport's Moa Bay and Nicaro Nickel facilities),and the United States ending up attempting to invade Cuba under the ill-fated Bay of Pigs operation. ONE OF THE PLANNERS OF THE BAY OF PIGS, AS WELL AS AN ADVOCATE FOR THE ASSASSINATION OF CASTRO, WAS ADMIRAL ARLEIGH BURKE. BURKE LATER BECAME A DIRECTOR OF FREEPORT SULPHUR. (If not mistaken I believe Admiral Burke was a member of the powerful Joint Chiefs of Staff that were hostilely engaged with JFK over the Cuba Conflict)

To provide a little background to the Cuba issue, we must recall that the Freeport Company had monopolized the Cuban nickel ore in the earth. That was based upon the work of the Sullivan Cromwell international law firm, which is the domain of the Dulles Brothers. The Dulles brothers using their powerful connections by way of the Republican Party to secured powerful positions with the government apparatus of Eisenhower (John Dulles/State Department and Allen Dulles/CIA). Just a few of the powerful corporations represented by Sullivan/Cromwell were Freeport Company and United Fruit Company with their numerous branch companies covering the Earth. In Cuba, the most profitable instrument formulated by these elites were tax breaks and nickel ore surplus stockpiling rule. These deals were designed to make profitable the nickel business even when market price for nickel were to at some point drop in the open market. Here we have the Eisenhower administration committing the U.S. government to buying and stockpiling Freeport/Cuba nickel ore at a very profitable set locked in price with American tax money. It was a highly potential dangerous scandal.

Now let's continue with Lisa Pease and allow her to reveal now this leads to more intense hatred for JFK.

"these stockpiling investigation were already reeling from its losses over the Castro's appropriation of the Moa Bay plant. Freeport found itself under attack from a new quarter: a Senate investigation into stockpiling surpluses, requested by President Kennedy himself. In 1962, President Kennedy asked Congress to look into the war emergency stockpiling program, stating it was "a potential source of excessive and unconscionable profits." He said he was "astounded" to discover that the program had accumulated 7.7 billion worth of stockpiled material; excessing projected needs by 3.4 billion. Kennedy also pledged full executive cooperation with the investigation, mentioning specifically 103 million in surplus nickel. The Senate pursued an investigation into stockpiling surpluses. Special attention was paid to three companies in which the ROCKEFELLER BROTHERS HAD SUBSTANTIAL HOLDINGS: Hannah Mining, International Mining, and FREEPORT SULPHUR."

"But the controversy flowed over into 1963, and Press Secretary Pierre Salinger stated the Kennedy Administration planned to make stockpiling an issue in the 1964 campaign. As we know, JFK didn't live long enough to fulfill THAT PROMISE."

Lisa Pease presented this NEW YORK TIMES article entitled: U.S. WAS PUSHED INTO BUYING NICKEL, SENATORS ARE TOLD, published 12/18/1962.

"The article opened with this: "A federal official (Kennedy Administration) told Senate stockpile investigators today that the U.S. Government got a bad deal in a 1957 nickel purchase contract (Eisenhower/Dulles/Freeport) with the potential $248,000,000 obligation. John Croston, a division director in the GSA, testified that he had strongly opposed the contract with the Freeport Sulphur Company. But, he said, officials in the agency "knew that the contract was in the bag from the beginning." Pressure for it, he said, came from the Office of Defense Mobilization, then headed by Arthur S. Flemming, Dr. Arthur S. Femming was regularly a part of the National Security Council under Eisenhower. Right after Ike's election, in November of 1952, Dr. Femming served with Ike's brother Milton on the three-member President's Advisory Committee on Government Organization, headed by NELSON ROCKEFELLER. Perhaps it was his friendship with Nelson that caused some to accuse Dr. Flemming of some arm twisting on Freeport's behalf." (Note the brilliant distraction from the Dulles brothers and on to Nelson Rockefeller and his brother)

I am presenting the People's witness Lisa Pease's documentations so as to lay the groundwork upon which our readers may attempt to ascertain the motivation (as it relates to Cuba in this case) from which a political assassination of JFK was justified. JFK stood to obstruct those powerful elites who sought the national wealth of riches of the nations of Cuba, Indonesia, and the Congo. Much of these action areas evolves around Freeport Corporation and it showcase how the US government was used to secure the goals of these power elites. Admittedly, it does not stand as the only motivation to murder but it may turn out to be a major one.

Lisa Pease presented this reported documentation which I would welcome any commentary reflection upon:

Source: New Orleans District Attorney's Office ---- memo from Sciambra to D.A. Jim Garrison, dated 10/09/1968:

"Memo in the Guy Bannister (retired FBI still doing suspected contract work for FBI) file indicates that there is information which reports that Dick White, a high official of FREEPORT SULPHUR, and CLAY SHAW (CIA) were flown to CUBA probably taking off from Harvey Canal area (New Orleans area) in a FREEPORT SULPHUR PLANE piloted by DAVE FERRIE (Mafia/Carlos Marcello and suspected CIA contract work). The purpose of this trip was to setup import of Cuba's nickel ore to a Canadian front company which would in turn ship to the Braithwaite nickel plant (Braithwaite, Louisiana). The plant was built by the U.S. government at a cost of about one million dollars."

If it pleases the Court, I will now present the following information from the book: WHERE ANGELS TREAD LIGHTLY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY by the outstanding JFK researcher JOHN NEWMAN. This will assist in disclosing the collaborate activities of the Eisenhower Administration and the economic and national security state elites in their struggle against Castro's movement which sets the background for the Coup of 1963. Let us take a peek at the book:

"In the summer and fall of 1958,Castro's forces staged a series of incidents that exposed the weakness of the Batista dictatorship and tested the limits of American forbearance in Cuba. On 22 June, Raul Castro issued Military Order Number 30, calling for the abduction of American citizens in his area>------------On 20 October, Castro's forces kidnapped two Texaco employees near Santiago. On 23 October, rebels forces released hostages and then promptly kidnapped two United Fruit employees (client company of the Dulles brother's law firm) and held them for a day. On 21 October, the rebels had seized the largest industrial complex in Cuba, the nickel plant at Nicaro, owned by the U.S. Government and run by the General Services Administration (formerly owned by Freeport Sulphur but who still has controlling ownership to the nickel being mined) (remember Freeport Sulphur is a client company of the Dulles brothers law firm and they were involved in the sweetheart deal with the US government in this nickel ore). This nickel plant at Nicaro had been built during the WWII to ensure U.S. strategic supplies. Castro's seizure of this facility LED EISENHOWER TO RAISE THE SPECTER OF U.S. INTERVENTION BY DISPACTING WARSHIPS TO CUBA. He ordered the U.S. attack transport KLEINSMITH TO NICARO on Cuba's northeast coast to assist in the evacuation of American dependents FROM THE PLANT. The President also ordered the U.S. aircraft carrier FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT to patrol nearby waters to back up the evacuation operations."

Let's continue from same source:

"Undaunted, Castro's forces began demanding "taxes" from American companies operating in eastern Cuba. On 25 October, a representative of Castro's forces met with a Texaco representative and demanded either $500,000 in cash or $300,000 in arms. Angry with the rebels and U.S. inaction, on 28 October officials from these American companies met in New York to discuss the problem. The following day in Washington, senior State Department officials listened to the heated complaints of several of these business leaders, including Kenneth R. Redmond, President of the UNITED FRUIT COMPANY; Robert J. Kleberg, President of King Ranch; J.C. Carrington of the FREEPORT SULFUR Company; Harris F. Dodge of the Texas Company; and Mr. Hummel of the Lone Star Cement Company.----------

"On 4 November, U.S. Ambassador Earl Smith cabled Washington, "It is essential that our government learn beyond doubt whether and to what extent Castro's movement is penetrated, supported, influenced or directed by international communism."--------

"President Eisenhower needed, BUT WOULD NOT RECEIVE, THIS CRITICAL INFORMATION before a series of events would doom American policy in Cuba."

Here's more of the same very valuable source as it reveals the evil pitfall that waits the eventual arrival of the doomed JFK:

"5 November, Eisenhower hinted publicly that protection of U.S. lives and interests in Cuba WOULD BE GROUNDS FOR INTERVENTION, and he did so in language nearly identical to that which he used just before U.S. intervention in Lebanon earlier in the year. Eisenhower might well have intervened in Cuba had Khrushchev not thrown the world into another major crisis five days later. In a 10 November speech, Khrushchev suddenly called on the Western Powers to get out of Berlin. Eisenhower later said this Soviet challenge had transformed Berlin "into a tinderbox." In a 14 November speech, Khrushchev further escalated the crisis by FALSELY DECLARING that the Soviet Union had begun production of inter-continental ballistic missiles (ICBM's). Whether by coincidence or BY DESIGN, Khrushchev manufactured to Berlin crisis and his latest missile threat at the VERY MOMENT began his final drive to power."------

"Khrushchev's gambit altered the American perception of the strategic balance of power at a crucial moment during the Cuban revolution. It was at this very moment that Castro's run for power led to Eisenhower Administration to review its options in Cuba. The choices Eisenhower made would GIVE THE CUBAN REVOLUTION THE BREATHING SPACE ITS NEEDS TO BECAME ENRENCHED."
