A New Year, A New Blog, and My Son’s Battle With Cancer

As some of you who read this blog may already know, less than two weeks before Thanksgiving, my five-year-old son was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in his leg.

Needless to say, the past month and a half has been a whirlwind of horrendously challenging trials for my family as our whole world has been turned upside down.

To better process the anguish (and to hopefully be able to help other families who go through this in the future), I began a new blog chronicling our battle with our baby boy’s cancer.

Although I will still keep this blog, I won’t be adding much to it as my time is limited even more now than it has ever been in the past. However, I encourage you to subscribe to my new blog, The Kohen Chronicles (or at least check it out). Your encouragement and support are greatly appreciated.

Additionally, you can check out my non-fiction articles and essays published on Medium at

As for my next book (an anthology of short stories entitled What Lurks Beneath), I am still working on writing it but its release is obviously going to be delayed. I was originally hoping to have it published by the end of 2020, but it will likely not be available until the following year.

Thank you for your understanding, patience, and support during this challenging time.

Thirteen People Who Had Foreknowledge of JFK’s Assassination

The Thirteen People Who Knew About President Kennedy’s Assassination Before It Happened

One of the many fascinating discoveries uncovered by independent researchers in the nearly 60 years of investigation into the murder of President John F. Kennedy, is the revelation that numerous people had foreknowledge of the assassination.

Why this is so remarkable is because we’ve been programmed since grade school to believe that President Kennedy was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald and no one else was involved.

JFK iin HawaiiBut what you’re not told is that Oswald had no motivation to kill the president and he denied killing the president. He was also the first person to publicly reveal there was a conspiracy involved in the assassination when he forcefully declared, “I’m just a patsy.”

Unfortunately the world never got an opportunity to hear what else Oswald knew because he was quickly—and conveniently — silenced by a single gunshot while in police custody by a man who would also publicly reveal that a conspiracy was behind the assassination. That man, Jack Ruby, admitted to reporters that there were more people involved in the assassination when he said, “The people that had so much to gain and had such an ulterior motive for putting me in the position I’m in, will never let the true facts come above board to the world.” One of the reporters then asked Ruby, “Are these people in very high positions, Jack?” Ruby simply but firmly responded, “Yes.”

The official government narrative (regurgitated ad nauseam by the mainstream media) is that Oswald was the sole “lone nut” assassin who just happened to be aided by a combination of prodigiously fortuitous luck as well as a long chain of innumerable coincidences. But there’s more to this story. Much, much more.

The following thirteen incidents highlight the accounts of those who knew about JFK’s assassination before it happened, thus rending the official storyline of “Oswald acted alone” as complete rubbish (if Oswald even “acted” at all). There’s no doubt that there are many more people who knew beforehand about the plot to kill JFK than are listed below, but the following stories are the one’s that are documented and on the record.

This list in not intended to be an exhaustive case study of each incident, but rather a primer—a peek behind the curtain, if you will—to whet your whistle in the hope that your newly piqued curiosity will provoke you to conduct your own research, and persuade you to critically rethink all that you’ve been told to believe about that dark November day in Dallas.

So, without further ado, let’s begin.

01). Melba Marcades (Better Known As Rose Cherami)

The Woman Who Knew Too Much

The story of Melba Christine Marcades is so incredible, it earned a scene in Oliver Stone’s 1991 film, JFK. Melba’s story proves beyond a reasonable doubt that a conspiracy was behind the 20th Century’s most shocking crime: the broad daylight murder of a sitting president.

Melba, better knoiwn as Rose Cherami (sometimes spelled Cheramie), was a drug runner for (the aforementioned) Jack Ruby and a dancer at Ruby’s nightclub, the Carousel Club.

On November 20, 1963 Rose Cherami was traveling to Dallas from Miami in a car with two men when an argument between them ensued and Rose was thrown from the car in Eunice, Louisiana, sustaining injuries that required hospitalization.

When Louisiana State Police Lieutenant, Francis Fruge spoke with Rose regarding the incident, she told him that prior to being thrown from the car, the two men she was traveling with discussed a plot to kill JFK in Dallas. Admittedly, Lieutenant Fruge blew off the woman’s claims.

Rose told the hospital staff, including Doctor Victor Weiss and Doctor Wayne Owen, about the pending assassination of JFK. As expected, no one believed her because, after all, she wasn’t a stand-up citizen.

But that’s not all Rose talked about during her hospital stay. She told everyone about how she knew both Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald, and that she had witnessed Ruby and Oswald together at the Carousel Club on more than one occasion.

Two days after Rose arrived at the hospital, John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States of America, was gunned down in Dallas, just as Rose said.

Of course, after the assassination, Rose was no longer considered crazy. News of Rose’s foreknowledge of JFK’s assassination spread throughout the hospital and everyone she talked to (including Lieutenant Fruge) immediately became vital witnesses in the investigation of the murder of JFK.

However (but not surprisingly), neither the Dallas Police Department nor the FBI showed any interest in this information, and neither did the Warren Commission.

On September 04, 1965, Rose‘s body was found lying in a remote area just outside Big Sandy, Texas. Although some hospital reports claimed she was alive for up to eight hours before later expiring at the hospital, her death certificate claims she was dead on arrival.

The official explanation for Rose Cherami’s death was that she had been run over by a motor vehicle. However, one injury of note was a “deep punctate stellate wound above her right forehead,” the type of injury sustained from a direct-contact gunshot.

02). Joseph Miller

That Time The Plot To Kill JFK Was Captured On A Secret Miami Police Recording Two Weeks Before The Assassination

On November 09, 1963, Joseph A. Milteer (a segregationist JFK hater with ties to other haters of JFK, as well as ties to those suspected of bombing the Birmingham, Alabama church that killed four children) was surreptitiously recorded by the Miami Police Department while he spoke with police informant, William Somersett, in Somersett’s third floor Miami apartment. During this conversation, Milteer candidly spoke of JFK’s upcoming assassination.

Somersett: I think Kennedy is coming here November 18th or something like that to make some kind of speech. I don’t know what it is, but I imagine it will be on TV.

Milteer: You can bet your bottom dollar he is going to have a lot to say about the Cubans; there are so many of them here.

Somersett: Well, he’ll have a thousand body guards, don’t worry about that.

Milteer: The more body guards he has, the easier it is to get him.

Somersett: What?

Milteer: The more body guards he has, the more easier it is to get him.

Somersett: Well, how in hell do you figure would be the best way would be to get him?

Milteer: From an office building. With a high powered rifle.

25 Facts About Lee Harvey Oswald You Were Never Told About.

October 18, 2019, would have been Lee Harvey Oswald’s 80th birthday. To mark the occasion, here are 25 facts you were never told about this mysterious man.


1). Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Lee Harvey Oswald was the fifth cousin (five times removed) of Confederate General, Robert E. Lee. In Fact, Lee Harvey Oswald’s father’s name was Robert E. Lee Oswald Senior.


2). As a teenager, Lee Harvey Oswald was a fan of the TV show, I Led Three Lives. The show ran from 1953 to 1956 and is described as, “An advertising executive poses as a Communist agent but secretly reports to the FBI.”

3). Enlisting with the Marines in 1956, Oswald eventually obtained top secret security clearance and was stationed at the American U2 radar base in Atsugi, Japan where he monitored radar for American spy planes.


4). Oswald defected to Russia — America’s Cold War enemy at the time — in October of 1959 where he renounced his American citizenship.

(Those who believe Oswald killed President John F. Kennedy point to this defection as proof that Oswald was a communist, whereas those critical of the official story about Oswald’s involvement in the assassination point to this as one of Oswald’s covers as a U.S. intelligence agent in order to appear as a communist sympathizer. In the intelligence community this is commonly referred to as “sheep dipping.”)

5). Almost two years after defecting, Oswald typed a letter to the American Embassy on August 08, 1961, about returning to America. Strangely, he wrote in that letter, “I believe I could catch a military hop back to the States, from Berlin.”

Catching a ride on an American military plane would be an outlandish suggestion from someone that defected to America’s Cold War enemy and renounced his American citizenship, but not as outlandish as America’s response: the U.S. State Department actually loaned Oswald (a supposed enemy defector) $435.71 so he could fly back to America.

6). Oswald was (miraculously) not arrested upon his return and his new Russian wife, Marina, was also allowed into the country without reservation.


7). Oswald continued to present himself as a Marxist, while simultaneously becoming friends with avowed anti-communists such as Guy Banister (former FBI), David Ferrie (Civil Air Patrol and involved in CIA military training for anti-Castro exiles), and Clay Shaw (businessman and CIA informant).

8). Another one of Oswald’s anti-communist friends was European émigré, George de Mohrenschildt, a petroleum geologist who just happened to also be friends with CIA employee, George H.W. Bush. Yes, the same George H.W. Bush who would later become CIA director and the 41st president of the United States (and who claimed he couldn’t remember where he was the day JFK was assassinated).

Las Vegas: Two Years Later

Two Years After the Tragedy, Questions Still Remain


October 01, 2019, marks the second anniversary since the Las Vegas tragedy that resulted in the death of 58 concert goers and injuries to over 500 others.

It was a grand-scale mass shooting that was quickly pulled from the news cycle and thrown down the memory hole to make room for more pressing news such as professional football players kneeling during the National Anthem.


But for those who aren’t as easily lulled to sleep or given over to distraction, many unanswered questions about this mass causality event still remain, including the nagging inconsistencies and contradictions in the official narrative, the changing timelines, the clear audible proof of gunfire coming from two distinct locations quite a distance apart (see here), numerous witnesses describing multiple shooters at the concert (see herehere, and here), and numerous witnesses describing shooters in other casinos like the Bellagio (see here and here), Planet Hollywood (see here and here), the Aria (see here), and Caesar’s Palace (see here).

Today, on the two-year anniversary, I want to reach deep into the abyss of the memory hole to salvage just one of the many news stories that have been purposely forgotten, and dust it off for your consideration.
