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).

How to train your parrot.

imageThe following piece is from the blog Orwelliania. It is defintiely worth the read.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR PARROT

First, buy your parrot a TV. Place parrot in front of set. Tune to mainstream media channel. To your amazement, the parrot will soon pick up the prescribed talking points of the week and be able to repeat them back as if it knows what it’s talking about. Curiously, the dumber the bird, the better it will be at this.

Second, constantly repeat key phrases whenever you are in the room with your parrot. Parrots are very good imitators of other people’s words, so your phrases can be fairly complicated and the parrot will still eventually pick them up. Try, ‘if you’re not doing anything wrong, there’s really nothing to fear from the NSA’. You’ll be amazed by how quickly your parrot can learn this quite word-heavy meme. Simpler phrases can be picked up much faster. A good one to try right off the bat is, ‘only crazy people believe in conspiracies’, or the even more basic, ‘someone would’ve talked’.

I know these phrases just sound like pointless gibberish, but it can be quite amusing to hear such mindless certainty coming out of the beak of a . . . birdbrain.

Third, if you’re unhappy with your parrot’s progress, for instance you may be trying to train the little [birdie] to say, ‘ISIS is the new reason we have to give up all our rights’, but the parrot just keeps repeating ‘false flag, false flag!’ you may need to resort to threats.

Threats can be an effective technique in controlling your bird’s behavior. A method that I have found useful is to tune the parrot’s TV to a cooking channel where a chicken dinner is being prepared. As the parrot stares in shock and disbelief at the horror unfolding on the screen, repeat the phrase ‘they didn’t play along.’ over and over until it gets the message.

The above tips are all very effective tools for conditioning your bird. Give it a try yourself. You may enjoy the sense of power you experience when you achieve success.

Careful, though, it’s addictive.
