JFK Resolutions for 2020

JFK 2020 Resolutions

PLAN A for 2020 - JFKCountercoup Research and Writing

Where Do We Go From Here?

I started writing this on New Year’s Eve, and I'm still not done, but trying to stay focused.

I remember sitting in my St. Joe’s school room in the early 1960s reading 1984 and wondering - where I would be in 1984? When Stanley Krubeck’s 2001 A Space Odyssey came out in the 1970s and - I wondered what it would be like come 2001?

Then when the JFK Act of 1992 was passed by Congress requiring all of the government’s JFK assassination records be released by October 2017, I wondered – where would I be and what would I be doing come 2017?

And here we are in 2020 and 1984, 2001 and 2017 have come and gone, and many thousands of JFK Assassination records remain withheld and no one is asking for the law to be enforced and the records released.

So I’m going to set my own agenda, as I laid it out to myself on New Year’s Eve 2020.

My JFK New Years Resolutions for 2020 are:

1)      Get the JFK Act of 1992 enforced, convene the House Oversight hearings as required by the law, get all of the records released, as the law prescribes, and determine what became of the destroyed, missing and still withheld records.

2)      End the Great Debate over the role of Lee Harvey Oswald, - dispose of the Patsy and move on to the real assassins and the total truth, so no one can rationally say one man alone killed the President.

3)      Legally Exonerate Oswald in a Texas Court of Inquiry so that other legal processes – Dallas Grand Jury, Federal Grand Jury, etc. can kick in.

4)      Interview as many of the remaining living witnesses as possible, as part of the CAPA-TRC project. I will be doing this in two or three spurts - this spring, summer and fall, driving my Honda Odyssey van around the country interviewing researchers, witnesses and suspects, as I have been doing, but mainly on the phone. I will be knocking on doors soon, and will keep you posted on what I learn. Maybe I'll even put a camera in my cap and go live on occasion. 

5)      Write and Publish three books – beginning a trilogy on the assassination – one that resolves it to a moral and legal certainty, a second Anthology of important news reports, articles, book chapters and conference presentations that are necessary to understand what really happened, and a third book, sometime down the line, of my personal journey on this trip. All of my supporters and patrons will get advance copies of these books as soon as they are available. 

For starters, I still feel as I did when I made the opening presentation at the Lancer conference in 2018, and that is the emphasis should now be on Washington D.C. rather than Dallas, though I am going to vote for CAPA to return to Dallas for another two day event, Friday and Saturday, November 20-21. That will be a few weeks after the election and removes the excuse not to pursue Congressional action until after the election, a decision I understand but firmly disagree with.

Most of those running these shows, including those in Washington D.C., don't believe that the current Congress will do anything, let alone hold JFK Act Oversight hearings, mainly because of the preoccupation with Donald Trump, the impeachment and impending election. 

Since Donald Trump is the one who is responsible for the continued withholding of assassination records, despite threatening to release them all as the law requires, so we should try to make the still secret records a campaign issue, and maybe even a part of the impeachment proceedings, though I don't like the whole impeachment shennagans. 

Former Chief of Staff USMC General John Kelly was in charge of the Oval Office at the White House when Trump made his sudden about face regarding the release of the records, literally at the last hour on the last day, so he must have played a major role in that decision. The letter of recomendations from Archivist of the US David Ferrerio must have also been important, especially since that letter is still sealed and not available to the public. 

Since Kelly is now gone, there may be a chance of getting Trump to reverse himself again and just release the remaining records, if only someone will ask him. And I just happen to know Democratic Turncoat Jeff Van Drew, a former Cape May County neighbor whose hosting Trump in our backyard this week. Maybe Jeff will be able to convince him to just do it. 

Whatever becomes of the still sealed records, the JFK Act remains in force until the Archivist informs the President, Congress and the American people that the last previously sealed and secret government record on the assassination of President Kennedy has been released. That's not going to happen soon. 

And Congress will still have to have Oversight hearings on the JFK Act because they are required to do so by law, it's just a matter of when they do it, in our lifetime or the next. 

Once the elections are over in the first week of November, there will be a Lame Duck Congress that may be willing to do some radical things, like enforce the JFK Act, and if they don't maybe the next Congress will, but I don't have time to wait for them. We need to at least make the effort, now. 

As I said before I thought the previous chair of the Oversight Committee, the late Baltimore Congressman Elija Cummings was The Man to do this, but he was old, and sick and nobody made the effort. His replacement however, is a healthy blonde women who knows Karate, so don't give her any trouble, but ask her politely to please hold JFK Act Oversight hearings. 

So in the spirit of MLK I ask all my friends and associates, readers and everyone interested in this cause, to use MLK Day of Service to write a letter, make a phone call, send a fax to the House Oversight Committee requesting to know in advance when they will be holding Congressional Oversight of the JFK Act of 1992.

Of all our legal objectives in the JFK case getting Congressional Oversight Hearings of the JFK Act of 1992 is the easiest, but also the one the opposition opposes, and for good reasons. The still withheld records ARE Explosive, and they will do everything in their power to keep them sealed. 

It took Oliver Stone’s “JFK” movie trailer to get people to demand their representatives in Congress release the government records on the assassination of the President, and it will take a similar public response to get Congress to do anything, but it is something that’s already been done and we can probably do again if it is prepared and planned in advance.

So I, as the soul proprietor of  the JFKCountercoup blog internet site, be it resolved and without any opposition, all those international citizens against political assassinations, those who seek truth and reconciliation without retribution, and those who just want to know the truth, dedicate their one day of service for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day  Monday - Jan. 20, 2020 – towards seeking the complete and total enforcement of the JFK Act of 1992 and release all of the government records on the assassination of President Kennedy in full, in accordance with the law, passed by Congress, signed in to law by President George H.W. Bush, acted on by President Clinton, and extended by President Trump in October 2017.

The provisions of the law require that it be reviewed and overseen by the House Oversight Committee, currently chaired by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D. NY), the only person who has the power to schedule oversight hearings.

Having Congressional Oversight Hearings on the JFK Act would be carried live by ESPN and be sensational in the  testimony it would elecit, so it isn’t likely such an oversight hearing will happen, unless the people, the citizens of the United States REQUIRE it to happen, as they did in response to Oliver Stone’s movie “JFK.”

It doesn’t seem likely that we will ever see another film have such an important impact than “JFK,” but we may need something like it to kick start a new campaign for JFK Act Oversight Hearings.

All suggestions are welcome, other than from Roger Stone.

But I’m going to start another petition, directed at Rep. Maloney, requesting she schedule JFK Act Oversight Hearings, a petition that I will try to circulate at first among recognizable people and then to everyone, and see how many we get. It WILL NOT be a free internet petition (ala, who do not give the email addresses of those who sign on, except to use for their own purposes. It will be an internet petition that will enable us to communicate with those who sign on so we can keep you posted on the resultes of our efforts.

The MLK Day – JFK Act Congressional Oversight project is just the beginning, as in mid-March we want to take over the 2020 Sunshine Week program to at least include the still withheld government records on the JFK assassination.

If our MLK Day requests are answered, Sunshine Week (Mid-March) would be the perfect time for Congress to hold JFK Act Oversight hearings, and whenever and where ever Sunshine Week events are held, the records on assassination of President Kennedy and the failure of Congress to oversee the law should be the primary aspects of the discussion.

If your representative in the House are among those listed as members of the House Oversight Committee, either Democrat or Republican, you could hit the jackpot, as your letter as a voting constituent will be given priority over those of us who are writing as citizens. Please check the list and email me and let me know if your congressman is on the committee. If we can get a half dozen constituents of committee members to visit their Congressonal office or the Committee office, they will be given a ten or fifteen minute meeting with their Representatives, and you have the opportunity to tell them why this is so important, and they will listen to you.

If you want to be a part of this JFK-MLK Day Campaign please write a clear and concise, one page letter to the chairwomen of the House Oversight Committee, the only person in the world who can schedule an Oversight Hearing on the JFK Act, and ask her to do so. You can also request that you be informed of any JFK Act Oversight hearings as soon as it is scheduled so you can make arrangements to attend. 

Then fax it, email it and then mail it through the regular mail to make sure they get it. Calling them and talking to a staff member in a polite way can also get their attention. I will be posting my letter as an example soon.

And many thanks to those who have assisted me to keep me going. Two thirds of the way towards the goal I set a year ago. I love the $20 donations, because that’s what I can give to my causes, but the two $500 anonymous awards really helped at a critical time. One was from someone who said they read about my association with the late, great Mae Brussell, and I will be writing about her again soon, and believe that I am continuing her work.
