Thinks facts on McCarthy are incorrect

March 16, 2008

Question

Thanks very much for the Lyrics of "We didn't start the fire." I don't know if you care, but you have the facts all wrong on McCarthy. If you do care, I suggest you do some research instead of just repeating the myth.

- USA (15549)

Answer

As far as I know, the information on Sen. Joe McCarthy are correct and based on historical research. If you have any information that is different, I would be glad to hear it.

March 8, 2008

Question

At 1:28 during the 1956 lyrics in the Billy Joel video, there is a black and white image of something suspended by ropes. What is this an image of?

Pamela - USA (15502)

Answer

It is a photo of a black man or African-American tied to a tree before being lynched. Even during that time, some innocent blacks were hung in the deep South by members of the Ku Klux Klan.

Thinks the mafia had something to do with it

March 4, 2008

Question

you do not get in bed with the MAFFIA and leave when you like. TEXAS laws i believe prohibit the removal of a body out of the state without a autopsy but the body of KENNEDY was quickly removed ??why, you sup with the DEVIL you pay the price

raymond - UK (15479)

Answer

There have been theories that the mafia was involved in Kennedy's assassination, but they were discounted.

Federal laws supersede state laws, so they were able to remove the body.

Lincoln and Kennedy

Lincoln and Kennedy fought bankers

February 25, 2008

Question

There are two other similarities between Lincoln and Kennedy. Lincoln went to the central bank to get a loan to finance the civil war. The central bank wanted to charge 30% interest. Lincoln said no way and the federal government then printed its own money for the civil war........Lincoln was then assasinated.

Kennedy signed executive order 11110 taking the power away from the central bank (federal reserve) to coin money and regulate its value. The power was given back to Congress and the federal government started printing the Silver Certificate currency......Kennedy was assasinated 5 months later.

Look it up. Mess with the rich bankers......get assasinated.

- USA (15434)

Answer

Both presidents did have dealings with the bank system that caused hard feelings. Lincoln's actions were probably more serious, since he needed to finance the Civil War. But in both cases, assassinating the president would not change the laws that had been made. In fact, it would be uncertain whether the vice-president would be even more tough on the banks.

There were stronger feelings against Lincoln because of the Civil War. Also, Kennedy had enemies in the Mafia, CIA, and Cuba. So, it is unlikely that either assassination had anything to do with the bankers.

Conspiracy theories on assassinations

February 18, 2008

Question

The real coincidences are this: Niether real assasin was caught and killed. The guys who died didn't do the killings, one was a man of mistaken identity (JWB) was not the real JWB, (the real JWB broke his leg jumping onto the stage of the Ford theater), his body was dug up some time ago and it didnt't show any signs of a broken leg per "Histories Mysteries", and Lee Harvey Oswald didn't really kill Kennedy. Both Lincoln and Kennedy were going to get rid of the "Federal Reserve Bank" which is niether Federal nor does it have any reserves, and that is the real reason they were killed, all the rest is B.S. and the stories fabricated to fit the circumstances.

- USA (15381)

Answer

There were many rumors that John Wilkes Booth escaped. Several people later claimed to be Booth. Around 1995 some people wanted to dig up Booth's grave to see if it really was him buried there. The State of Maryland court denied the request. Thus his body was never checked as some claim it was.

The evidence that Oswald shot Kennedy is overwhelming. He even admitted it to his brother. But that is not to say others were not involved in the assassination. See Oswald's biography at: http://www.school-for-champions.com/biographies/lee_harvey_oswald.htm

The Federal Reserve Bank was not formed until 1913, well after Lincoln died. There is more evidence that the Mafia or Cuba was involved in the Kennedy assassination than anyone from the bank. Connection of the Federal Reserve Bank to any assassination is very weak.

Lincoln's Chief of Detectives

February 18, 2008

Question

Sir,
If you will do more research you will find as I did that the Chief of Detectives that was in charge to get Abraham Lincoln and Mrs. Lincoln on their train safely to Washington, D. C. 's name was John Kennedy. This is fact not fiction. What kind of transportation did John Kennedy use to get to Washington after he had been elected? and what was the names of the Secret Servicemen that escorted him?
Thank you very much.

Walter - USA (15382)

Answer

Thanks for the information that the Chief of Detectives' name was Kennedy.

John Kennedy liked the Lincoln Continental, so I assume that is the type of car he used after getting elected. Previous presidents used the Cadillac.

I do not know the names of the Secret Servicemen.

Wants details on autopsies

February 13, 2008

Question

why is there no physical description of oswald and boothe in their autopsies? How about oswald's military records and his texas employment records? How did oswald sustain himself seeing as how he rarely ever held a job? How was he able to 'incidentally' secure the job at the Texas school book depository at just the right time to kill kennedy? Why is it that only one old sick man is the only one to have a film of Kennedy's murder? Why did some one remove the bullet chipped curb across the street from the depository? Who paid for Oswald's international traveling expenses? Has anyone made compaisons of key players in their lives following the assasination? How was Boston Corbitt kin to 'gentleman' Jim Corbett of boxing fame?

Calvin - USA (15342)

Answer

You can see about Oswald's life in his biography at: http://www.school-for-champions.com/biographies/lee_harvey_oswald.htm

Our comparison of coincidences concerning the deaths of Lincoln and Kennedy is not a detailed account of all the factors involved in their assassinations. There are a number of books devoted to those details.

Japanese Attack SB

Some interesting facts about the shelling

January 23, 2008

Question

My Grandfather was Provos Marshall at Camp Roberts when a Japanese submarine shelled Goleta. Huell Howser has a one-hour documentary on the event. The movie "1941" by Steven Spielberg was done as a "comedy" on the event. My grandfather was Col. V.N. Scott(deceased 1986). A good friend of my grandfather owned a butcher shop in Paso Robles. My grandfather told me that Japanese corpses washed ashore and his friend hung them in his meat locker. This is all I know.

Scott - USA (15199)

Answer

Thanks for the interesting information on the event.

I wonder how the corpses came about? I didn't hear about the submarine being destroyed. Unless that was later, as a response to the shelling.

This song by Billy Joel is amazing

November 29, 2007

Question

This song by Billy Joel is....is amazing. right now i have to do a project on the things in his song for school and his song really has me thinking about evrything that happened then and thats happing now too. It really makes me think about the war going on in Iraq and like is it really worth losing all those lives for our towers? But then i think about how we are helping the government get back on its feet over there. This song can make a girl think really hard about more than her hair and nails and how they look for school. So I must say im extremly glad my history teacher gave her class this project because who knows it might make someone do something and change something as in the Domino Theaory, you know?

Alena :) - USA (14877)

Answer

Yes the song is amazing. Many people wish he would write and sing another one that is about more recent events.

I'm glad it got you thinking. Hopefully, we can all make the world a better place to live.
