  • Loren wrote for television and radio, this was his first book
  • The amount of influence totalitarian governments had on us
  • A relationship with German Intelligence officer Reinhard Gehlen
  • Loren didn’t like the film, the screenwriters couldn’t find the thread
  • The terrorism threat is sort of gauzy, Where? How?
  • Unite in order to survive, that’s what people will be told
  • Chapters start with quotes from a fictional handbook
  • The book is not a solution to the Kennedy assassinations
  • A list of JFK related deaths, originally Loren scoffed
  • The military men never became OSS assassins
  • General William Donovan, committed to the survival of Britain
  • Psychologists, psychiatrists, geographers,

#960 – Barry Ernest

 

  • A new edition of The Girl On The Stairs, witness Victoria Adams
  • In 1967, Barry started to doubt the Warren Commission
  • Vicky was on the staircase at the same time Oswald was supposed to be there
  • Barry interviewed Vicky 35 years later, her story was dismissed by the WC
  • Altered and ignored testimony of Roger Craig, Carolyn Walther, Emmet Hudson
  • The book is the story of the journey of Barry’s investigation
  • Victoria’s testimony was very consistent, the WC was very interested in her
  • Sandra Styles, who was with Vicky, did not testify to the WC
  • Barry’s website, a friend pointed out WC inconsistencies
  • Barry investigated to disprove his friend, but he couldn’t
  • The report implied Vicki was alone, it did not mention Sandra
  • Barry viewed the Zapruder film at the archive, he understood its significance
  • The Oswald/Baker/Truly timeline, Vicky was on the stairs at the time
  • In 1999 Barry found the Martha Stroud document re: Dorothy Garner
  • Garner worked with Adams and Styles, she fully corroborated Vicki’s timeline
  • She had been questioned by someone from the WC, and told them so
  • Vicki and Sandra should have encountered Lee descending, they did not
  • Was Oswald not on the sixth floor at the time of the assassination?
  • Sylvia Meagher thought so in 1967, Barry knows something was amiss
  • Oswald might have come up using the front stairs of the TSBD
  • Vicky’s testimony says she spoke to Shelley and Lovelady, she says otherwise
  • Many events Vicky testified to have supporting evidence
  • Barry arrived at four conclusions:
  • The Warren Report is wrong, They knew it was wrong,
  • The assassination is beyond the capabilities of one man,
  • Finding out who did kill JFK is beyond the capabilities of a private citizen
  • The Warren Report is wrong about Adams, They knew it was wrong,
  • They intentionally made her appear wrong,
  • Adams’ account is a critical element to Oswald’s whereabouts
  • The Shelley/Lovelady problem meant Adams was either right or wrong
  • Barry discovered the stenographer tapes of April 7th, 1964 are missing
  • Shelley, Lovelady and Adams all testified on that day in Dallas
  • Vicky states the incident was inserted in her testimony
  • The evidence doesn’t support Oswald in the doorway of the TSBD
  • You can look for culpability anywhere and find evidence to support
  • Johnson, anti-Castro Cubans, pro-Castro Cubans, CIA, the military, FBI
  • To a citizen it’s confusing, frustrating, disturbing
  • Harold Weisberg, Vince Salandria, Gary Schoerner, David Lifton, Penn Jones
