Hearne: Oliver Stone Plugs Larry Sells New JFK Book in USA Today

1385144366Guess who wasn’t in Kansas City last Friday?

Uptown Theater top dog Larry Sells, that’s who. Sells was holed up in the unofficial conspiracy world headquarters in Dallas, Texas for the 50th anniversary of the killing of President John F. Kennedy.

When I called Sells Thursday morning to wish him Happy JFK Day, he shot back, “It’s Happy Slaughter Kennedy in Dallas & Pretend You Didn’t Do It Day. And that’s what they’re doing here and I’m heading to Dealey Plaza this morning.”

Sells was especially pleased about director Oliver Stone‘s plug for his new bookJFK: Absolute Proof  by noted Kennedy Assassination expert and author Robert Groden.

“That’s a big deal,” Sells says. “And I’m down here in Dallas now putting together seminars for the next year and we’ll be publishing more books. We’ve got three in the works now, including one fiction.”

    And in breaking news, JFK is ‘still’ dead, a conspiracy has yet be proven, and inquiring minds remain unconvinced Oswald was the Alpha & Omega re: November 22, 1963.

    Why?

    Because there is at least as much doubt as faith in government ours, version theirs -that transparency has not prevailed since Warren Commission (secret) Hearings to today when redactions as well ‘keep sealed tilll’ the 12th of never sustain, ukase five decades now and still files closed, if not case; and and so it goes…

    So, three fiction books.

    The evidence of Oswald’s guilt was, and is, overwhelming.

    The evidence for a conspiracy is thin to non-existent, and is almost always predicated on assumptions that themselves are very sketchy.

    So there’s that.

    Have fun debating stuff that just doesn’t matter and is already settled.

      Yes, the US government never lies, we were attacked in the Gulf of Tonkin and the Iraqis had WMDs. Sound like a familiar story?

    “The evidence of Oswald’s guilt was, and is, overwhelming.” Wow, those are incredible unfounded words!
    If you want to disagree with ballistics, you can’t disagree with physics.
    In my humble opinion, Oswald thought he was the only shooter, thought he was the only shooter, till the moment he pulled the trigger and witnessed, for himself, the outcome. I think it was at that moment he realized, for the first time ever, he wasn’t the only person involved. I think that admission came when he said, “I’m just a patsy,” where, prior to that statement, he thought he was a self-imposed assassin.
    I’m guessing he had a sick feeling in the pit of his stomach when he pulled the trigger and saw that outcome. The timing wouldn’t have added up to him; while a patsy, he wasn’t an idiot. While a good shot, he wasn’t that good a shot, given the rifle used, the angle, speed and the damage the actual shots did.

    • Orphan of the Road says:

      Why would Oswald do it? Up until this time his commitment level to anything was thin.

      Well maybe his going to a twist party in Mexico City may have been the fulcrum which moved him into history.

      As Kerouc said above the government has never responded well to systematic failures or to heavily investigate itself and its financial codependents.

      LBJ lamented that the Kennedy’s were like Murder, INC in Latin America (pot, meet kettle) and a triple agent let Castro know of the plots to kill him.

      NOVA has twice used physics to prove the magic bullet theory.

      What we know is the same as we know of the history of the United States of Ameria, exactly what they want us to know.

      Business coup of 1933, anyone?

    • Cuckoo! Cuckoo! says:

      Wow, well, what an incredible piece of timing that was!

      And naturally, Ruth Paine, a friend of his family’s in Dallas, was in on the conspiracy too, since she told Oswald about the job at the Texas School Book Depository six weeks prior. And of course the depository super, Roy Truly, was CLEARLY part of the conspiracy – he hired Oswald and put him on the fifth and sixth floors of the building. Even though there was no evidence Paine and Truly were even remotely connected to anything.

      Were they part of the conspiracy? No. That’s because there was no conspiracy. Pretty lucky shot, though, and that’s what history is all about sometimes. Accept it and move on.

      Besides…everybody knows Joe DiMaggio did it.

    I was obesessed with the assassination for YEARS. I was CONVINCED it HAD to be a conspiracy. I was positive LHO could not have made this impossible shot. Until I went to the Sixth Floor Museum.

    I bought most of the books, the videos, hell… I even bought AUTOPSY PHOTOS in the 80’s.

    That was all shattered once I went to Dealey Plaza.

    The “impossible shot” is WAY easier than it looks. And any shot from the “Grassy Knoll” would have resulted in Jackie’s head exploding as well, as it is not..I say NOT in “front” of the limo.

    After years of wearing people out with my conspiracy theories, I have finally satisfied myself, beyond any doubt that LHO killed JFK alone. And Jack Ruby was a full blown nut who just, as hard as it seems, got lucky. Period.

    Sorry. I WANTED a conspiracy!!! I really did. But there is none.

    FWIW, Groden is a proven hack idiot. Stone incorporated just about every lunatic fringe conspiracy theory there ever was, queering any REAL investigation of this crime… which had…wait for it… already been solved by The Warren Commission!

    Warts and all, they got it right the first time.

    I’m satisfied.

    Either that, or my money is on The Easter Bunny as “Badge Man”, because Santa Claus said so.

    • Stomper says:

      +1

      About every poll I’ve seen for the past 50 years says we are in a very small minority, Guido. Overwhelmingly people think it was the Mafia, Castro, CIA, Soviets, U.S.Government, Aliens, etc. No shortage of motives. Just hard to believe that a loser like LHO could pull this off and that he would be silenced 48 hours later in the police station.

      Blind squirrel – acorn.

    • the dude says:

      Nobody said it was an impossible shot but considering he was shooting through tree cover at 150+yards at an object moving 10-15 miles per hour with his crappy Italian bolt action rifle I would say for his skill class a highly unlikely shot. But a broken clock is right two times a day so anything is possible in a universe of infinite possibilities.

      • Guido says:

        In 1963 it was not tree cover.

        Have you ever been to Dealey Plaza?

        It was what convinced me the shots were easy.

        I have poured over EVERYTHING. I cannot find any other person/persons than LHO.
