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.

FAMILY TIES

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.

THE EARLY YEARS

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.

TO RUSSIA AND BACK

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.

FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES

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

Vegas

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.
