The JFK Altgens6: Bill Shelley's Shrunken Head


BILL SHELLEY’S SHRUNKEN HEAD:
An Open Letter to Jim Fetzer

by Richard Hooke  

Jim, it occurs to me that if I cut out the odd ‘shrunken head’, from Black Hole Man’s upper chest, and attach it to the side of Obfuscated Man’s ‘Frankenstein looking’ head, then the resulting composite looks just like Bill Shelley.  I guess what prompted me to do that was the way Bill Shelley’s hairline comes down to a point in the center of his upper forehead (like Eddie Munster) and I knew Billy Lovelady’s hairline (Black Hole Man) was not like that.  

Obfuscated Man’s head looks a lot like Bill Shelley; with its similar right eyebrow and square cranium, but it is missing the pointed hairline and left eye.  Well, when you join the two half-heads what you get is the completed head of Bill Shelley; and guess what? He has the lean build, the narrow dark tie, the white long sleeve dress shirt… So, I put together the following collage to express my thoughts (please read the caption)




I ask you, what else could account for that odd shrunken head; dangling from the right upper chest of Black Hole Man?  It appears Billy Lovelady (Black Hole Man) had his head ‘blacked’ out and his chest ‘whited’ out; then Bill Shelley (Obfuscated Man) had a large portion of his head removed; obscuring Bill Shelley in the process, that was used to create a bogus replacement head for Black Hole Man (Lovelady).  Then a white blob-like right arm and small hand were created for Obfuscated Man, shading the eyes of his new bogus face that was sketched in front.  

Obfuscated Man’s (Bill Shelley) arms were originally folded across his stomach; so his original right forearm had to be taken out, having been altered to shade his eyes.  Bill Shelley’s entire right forearm, in a white dress shirt originally, was colored flesh tone, in a ridiculous attempt to make it look like an elongated left wrist, widening at its extremity; that is anatomically incorrect and obviously was a white shirted forearm to begin with (originally).  The Smiling Black Lady’s hair was extended up to cover Bill Shelley’s original right bicep.  

All of this was done very crudely, in a hurried manor, with primitive technology.  The shrunken replacement head, for Black Hole Man, was hung much too low, from his upper chest, and appears comical.  Obfuscated Man’s head was not fully obfuscated; his right eyebrow and lid, those of Bill Shelley, remain visible 49 years after the fact, and his altered straight hairline looks like Frankenstein.



The Big Lie Continues

Robin Unger, photo expert for the JFK Assassination Forum, continues to promote the bogus explanation that Obfuscated Man is shielding his eyes and looking forward; as evidenced by his colorization of Algens6 posted in the JFK Assassination Library.  Unger has yellowed out the shrunken head; refusing to acknowledge its existence.  My self and Dr. Ralph Cinque, were banned from the JFK Assassination Forum, late in 2012, by site owner Duncan MacRae.  

We had merely been expressing our opinion, with a mixture of narrative and photographic collages, that Lee Harvey Oswald was in the Texas School Book Depository doorway, on 11/22/63 at 12:30 pm, and thus could not have killed President Kennedy.  

Hundreds of pages of our discussion, energetic argument, and cutting-edge JFK Research, were all deleted by Duncan MacRae.  In one exchange with Robin Unger, I asked Unger why he had colored the shrunken head (on Black Hole man’s chest) yellow, expanded Obfuscated Man’s right hand to the size of a catcher’s mitt, and cut down the absurd proportion of his bogus left forearm:


Unger obviously is attempting to obfuscate Black Hole Man’s original crude bogus replacement head, expand Obfuscated Man’s false right hand (further obfuscating Bill Shelley’s head in the process), and fine tune Obfuscated Man’s original crude, anatomically incorrect, left forearm.

To which Unger simply responded, ‘What shrunken head?’, like there is nothing there.  Well, there is something there, and, I think it very well may be the remains of Bill Shelley’s head; and it should not be colored yellow by Robin Unger, unless he is trying to perpetuate the Big Lie 49 years after the fact; to steer the American public away from the fact that Bill Shelley was crudely obfuscated out of the Altgens6 photo because Lee Oswald told Captain Fritz he was ‘out with Bill Shelley in front’.  As I recall, my final argument on The JFK Assassination Forum was with Rob Caprio.  I argued for my rightful freedom of speech, Caprio said I should learn my place, and my work was promptly vaporized by Duncan MacRae.

Additional Fraudulent Interpretation by "Steve" at VT


















1 Right Hand

2 Right Spec 'Temple'

3 Front face right half-profile

4 Right Elbow

5 Bulging Belly (visible part - maybe partly due to leaning back as noted, but obviously not a slender guy nevertheless)

The apparently greying hair is above and to the right of the Spec Temple, going towards the hand.


Additional Observations

I believe that's the curved top of Bill Shelley's right shoulder (below left).  Actually, the photo (from Ralph Cinque’s photo shoot (below right)) is what tipped me off on that.  When your arm goes up, your shoulder becomes an extension of your upper arm and the rounded top of your deltoid goes away; would no longer be showing; if his arm was really up shielding his eyes, but it's not, it's a fraudulent depiction (below left).

and Ralph Cinque’s re-enactment


In addition, the smiling black Lady's hair was extended up to cover Bill Shelley's right bicep and elbow; also...look at the darkish, intermediate, area above the black Lady's hair and Shelley's right elbow...it is covering Bill Shelley's upper right pectoral area.


The Alteration Time-Line

In 2007, Jim Fetzer noticed the recently released notes of Dallas Police Captain Will Fritz’s interrogation of Lee Oswald on 11/22/63 said Oswald told Fritz he was ‘out with Bill Shelley in front’ at the time of the shooting.  The notes give the interrogation time as being from 3:15 pm to 4:15 pm.  It has been established that there was approximately a 3 hour time window when the Altgens6 photo was held up, in New York, before being released to the world for the evening papers. 

British JFK researcher Paul Rigby maintains that the Altgens6 photo (there were 7 altogether) was handled differently than the other 6. There was a delay in the release of Altgens6 because it was first wired to AP headquarters in New York, where it was "cropped twice." Rigby maintains that there was roughly a two to three hour window of opportunity for them to alter it. His exact words were: "I don't wish to exaggerate the window of opportunity for alteration. It was, at most, I hazard a guess, two to three hours. But, a window of opportunity there does appear to have existed."

I quote the words of respected British JFK researcher Paul Rigby:

"On the basis of the available evidence, we can, provisionally at least, conclude the following: 

1) Altgens did not develop his own photos; 

2) Altgens6 went by fax, not to the world at large, but to the AP New York HQ, at just after 1:00 PM CST; 

3) the negatives were sent by commercial airline, ostensibly to the same destination but did not arrive until hours after the initial fax; 

4) the dissemination of the image from NY did not occur until at least 2 hours after the fax arrived but before the arrival of the negatives; 

5) Both the AP and Altgens appear to have sought to conceal this hiatus; 

6) AP acted against its own commercial interest in delaying release of Altgens6; 

7) the version which first appeared in the final editions of newspapers in Canada and the US on the evening of November 22 was heavily, and very obviously, retouched; 

8) point 7) may not be the explanation, either full or partial, for the concealed delay; it is quite conceivable that obvious alterations were used to draw attention away from other more subtle stuff."

A Likely Scenario

I am imagining a scenario where Lee Oswald, during his Friday afternoon interrogation (11/22/63), told Captain Fritz he was out front with Bill Shelley.  Immediately a call was placed to the FBI photo lab in New York and a photo tech was told to take Oswald and Shelley out of the Altgens6 photo. They wanted to release Altgens6 because it showed the TSBD building and JFK being shot, in the same frame, thus establishing the shots came from the rear; but of course the patsy could not be in the TSBD 


if he was up on the 6th floor shooting the President.  And any possible witness collaboration could not be tolerated either so Bill Shelley had to be taken out of the photo.  Lee Oswald looked more like Billy Lovelady than anyone else in the doorway; so Lovelady (Black Hole Man) was blacked out, Bill Shelley (Obfuscated Man) was obfuscated, and Oswald (Doorman) was altered to look like Billy Lovelady.  

The job was sloppy: Lovelady was not completely blacked out, nor was Shelley completely obfuscated, and a large part of Shelley’s severed head was left dangling over the remains of Lovelady’s upper chest, and, of course, Doorman was not altered nearly enough because now, in 2012, the Oswald Innocence Campaign has established 50 Points of ID between Oswald at the Dallas Police station, later that day, and ‘The Man In The Doorway’, who was Lee Harvey Oswald, an innocent man gravely wronged by his own country: The United States of America.

JFK believe it or not: Oswald wasn't even a shooter!

“The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices - to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to . . . The Twilight Zone.” -- Rod Serling, 1960 

by Richard Hooke (with Jim Fetzer)

  As we approach the 49th observance of the assassination of JFK, I have been invited to speak at The Roxie Theatre in San Francisco on 22 November 2012 and explain what Oliver Stone got right and got wrong in his monumental film, "JFK".  Most of the film is right, where Oliver Stone has given us the most accurate, complete and comprehensive presentation of what actually happened in Dealey Plaza on 22 November 1963 that has ever been provided to the American public though the mass media.  But Oliver Stone had three rather important points wrong, which were that he believed (1) the home movies of the assassination, especially the Zapruder film, were authentic, when they were actually revisions of original films; (2) that there were only three teams of shooters, when there were actually six, surrounding the "kill zone"; and, perhaps most importantly,  (3) he did not know that the alleged assassin was "out with Bill Shelley in front", as Lee explained to Homicide Detective Will Fritz during his interrogation, which means there is direct proof of his innocence beyond the circumstantial.  The third may be the most important, since it demonstrates the utter corruption of the official account of the death of our 35th president. 

That the film is a fabrication has been proven on multiple grounds.  Those who study the eyewitness reports will find that more than 60 of them reported observing the limousine either slow dramatically or come to a complete halt, where it had to slow dramatically as it came to a complete halt.  The limo stop was such an obvious indication of Secret Service complicity that it had to be removed, which left no time for Clint Hill to rush forward, climb over the trunk, push Jackie down and lie across their bodies, while peering down into the fist-sized hole in the back of JFK's head, which led him to give a "thumbs down" to his colleagues--all before the limo reached the Triple Underpass! We know from John P. Costella's brilliant studies of the extant version that it was recreated using original film, but where mistakes were made in the process.  And we know from Douglas Horne where it was done and how the substitution of the fabrication was made for the original. About these matters there can be no doubt.

But even serious students of the assassination still balk at the suggestion that Lee Oswald was out in front of the Book Depository with Bill Shelly and others, straining to catch a glimpse of JFK and Jackie--just like almost everyone else who worked there.  We know from testimony by co-workers that he was in and around the lunchroom on the 2nd floor at 11:50, Noon, 12:15 and as late as 12:25, where the assassination took place at 12:30.  He was then confronted by a motorcycle patrolman named "Marrion Baker" within 90 seconds of the shooting, where Baker held him in his sights until Roy Truly, his supervisor, came over to assure him that the man was an employee who belonged there.  This should by now be well-known to every serious student of the death of JFK.  Yet some persist in denial that Lee cannot have been a shooter, no matter how strong the evidence.  And the evidence, once it has been noticed, is extraordinarily strong.  Consider this close-up of the crucial area of the most famous photos taken in Dealey Plaza at the time:



 Taken by James "Ike" Altgens and technically known as "Altgens6" as the sixth of a series of seven photographs purportedly taken by him on that occasion,  this close-up shows the man in the doorway at the center left, where his left shoulder is anomalously missing.  The man beside him, wearing a black tie, is simultaneously both in front of him and behind him, which is physically impossible.  His torso and shirt are partially obscured by the extremely strange image of the right profile of a black man's head. And the face of a man to his left/front (right/front as we view the image) has been crudely obscured.  There would have been no reason to have altered the photograph unless someone had been there who should not have been there, where the only candidate is Lee Oswald.  These oddities are so blatant that, once they have been remarked, it is rather difficult to imagine why anyone would persist in denying that Altgens6 was altered.  But one could still deny that Lee Oswald was in the doorway by insisting it was someone else.  This article demonstrates how one of the most ingenious forgeries in history was pulled off by experts who knew what they were doing.  Read it and weep at the massiveness of the lies our government has told us!

"JFK Special 6: Oswald was in the doorway, after all!" 

by Richard Hooke (with Jim Fetzer)

Earlier this summer Dr. Ralph Cinque, Professor Fetzer, Professor David Wrone, and I, Richard Hooke, founded the Oswald Innocence Campaign that is a gathering of researchers, and concerned individuals, committed to spreading the truth that Lee Harvey Oswald was the “Man in the Doorway” in the famous photo, by Ike Altgens, which thereby exonerates Oswald of having shot at President Kennedy.   In this case, a picture really is worth a million words, since it trumps the massive media effort to the contrary.  We are taking a stand for what, upon close examination, the photo clearly reveals and cannot be denied by rational thinking people.  The founding of the OIC marks a sea change in JFK research.  A new breed of JFK researcher has emerged.  Nevertheless, there are those on the internet, such S.V. Anderson and other "lone gunman" shills, who comb internet forums and cannot quite figure out why I, and others, of this new breed of conspiracy theorist, are so persistent and will not be silenced.  The moment for the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth has come.

The explanation is that enough time has passed that ‘The Power of Officialdom" has long since worn off and we are now sensing the warm rays of truth beginning to break through--and at an ever increasing rate.  We are no longer content to shuffle around the same familiar arguments.  The assassination of JFK happened a long time ago and nearly a world away, yet for many of us, born in the 1940s and 50s, it seems just like yesterday.  We have lived nearly our entire lives being told conflicting and crazy explanations of the of deaths JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald and we are tired of it.  We are not going to be content passing our lives without knowing what really happened to our President and to the enigmatic Lee Harvey Oswald on that fateful November day.  We realize that if we can get more Americans to face what really happened, no matter how painful that may be, we will be leaving the world a better place for our children.  In the course of human events, it was inevitable that the argument would swing back toward truth.  Our very existence demands it, and "the vector of truth", as it might be called, is now pointing at the "Man in the Doorway" in the Altgens6.

The light has finally dawned that the question of whether or not Lee Harvey Oswald was the man in the Texas School Book Depository doorway can be answered. At 12:30 PM, on 22 November 1963, the famous Altgens6 photo by Dallas Associated Press photographer James “Ike” Altgens, shows JFK as the Presidential limousine passes the TSBD, with his arms crossed and hands near his throat, as he reacts to being shot by a bullet that passed through the windshield.  You can see the bullet hole itself, which is the dark spot at the center of a while, spiral nebula, where his left ear would be were it visible.  Altgens ran east to west, across the grass, toward the south curb of Elm, stopped across from the Plaza’s north colonnade, and snapped his photo approximately 295 feet south of the depository's doorway with his 35mm Nikkorex-F single-lens-reflex camera, with 105mm telephoto lens.  The Altgens6 has been assumed to corresponds to frame 255 of the Zapruder film, where the film, like the photo, has been revised.  Altgens’ picture was allegedly “on the wire” within minutes (12:57 PM) of the assassination and forwarded to the AP in New York. It was among the first assassination photos widely printed in newspapers across the nation.  The negative remained at the Dallas AP office but was subsequently "lost", one of many reasons that controversy has dogged the Altgens6 photo from the beginning.

 

                              The Secret Service would later substitute another windshield with a spider-web-like configuration for the original, which had a dark hole in the center of the white, spiral nebula, in another blatant example of the alteration of evidence.

Points of Comparison

  The official line, for nearly 50 years, has been that another TSBD employee, Billy Lovelady, was the real man in the doorway.  Not the least of the problems with that story is that, on 2 March 1964, Billy Lovelady told the FBI that he had been wearing a red and white, vertically striped, short sleeved shirt buttoned near his neck--and the FBI took photographs of Billy wearing it.  Lee Oswald, by comparison, had on a long sleeve, brown tweed over shirt, which was unbuttoned more than halfway down his torso. Beneath it, he was wearing a white under shirt (or "t-shirt") with collar stretched into a V.  His clothing, his stance and posture, his right ear, his left eye and brow, his mouth, expression, chin, and facial bone structure, points of light and shadow, and hair are the same as those features of Doorman (as this article explains).  There are multiple unique and identifiable features of Doorman and Oswald's shirt, collar and lapels, alone.  First consider his left lapel and then consider the right, as follows:

                          

George H.W. Bush once spoke of "a thousand points of light".  But in this case we can settle for 27 points of similarity between Doorman and Oswald.  If you were to assume that two different people, taken at random, might share one of these features in common at one time in ten--which is probably an exaggeration, but useful for calculation--then the probability that they would share 27 features in common would be equal to 1/10 times itself 27 times, which is a one over a one followed by twenty seven zeros or 1/1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000, which we would all agree is a very small number.  If these similarities are not assumed to be occurring merely by chance because Doorman and Oswald were the same person, however, then the probability that they would have 27 features in common approximates the value of one.  Since an hypothesis is preferable when its probability (technically, its likelihood) is greater than an alternative, unless one is a value that is smaller than 1/1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000, the Oswald = Doorman hypothesis has been confirmed:

 

It wasn't Billy Lovelady

Critics have noticed that Billy Lovelady was pictured in the Warren Commission documents in the short sleeve, red and white, striped shirt that he had told the FBI he had worn on 22 November 1963.  Obviously, if that had been the shirt that he had been wearing, then if the choice was between Lovelady and Oswald, Doorman had to be Oswald.  So, in 1967, Lovelady changed his story.  He claimed that it was all a misunderstanding and that he had actually not posed for the FBI in the shirt that he had actually worn, despite it having been unbuttoned and folded over in order to expose his undershirt, in an obvious attempt to simulate Altgens6 Doorman. Here are the photos that were taken by the FBI, where they described the shirt in their own report back to FBI Headquarters:
                              
                                                                                

In 1967, Billy and his wife, Mrs. Lovelady, began claiming that he had worn a red, black, and white long sleeve checked shirt.  Well, anyone can see the second shirt Lovelady claimed to have worn did not a match Doorman either and that it is very difficult to imaging that Doorman's shirt to have been a red-and-black check (with a white fleck) shirt with a very delineated horizontal and vertical pattern.  Their contention was reinforced by the claim that Billy had inadvertently been captured in footage taken as Oswald was escorted through the offices of the Dallas Police Department and that he had likewise been filmed in front of the depository, where Professor Fetzer also believes that features of the image on the left were slightly altered to make him look more like Oswald, which is not far-fetched (see below):

  Approaching the HSCA investigation of 1977-78, film clips began to surface providing additional evidence Lovelady was wearing a long sleeve red-and-black check (with a white fleck) shirt on the day of the assassination.  Images of Lovelady appear to have been superimposed into the Martin, Hughs, Dallas PD and Dave Wiegman films to provide bogus, after-the-fact, evidence that Billy Lovelady had been in the TSBD doorway wearing a long sleeve, red-black-and-white check shirt.  A frame of the Martin film shows a phony Lovelady (in this bogus check shirt) in the doorway with his shirt buttoned clear up to his neck, yet a frame of the Hugh’s film (supposedly depicting Lovelady at the same moment in time) shows Lovelady with his shirt sprawled wide--clearly a blunder in attempting to imitate the man in the doorway.  The difference are virtually those of a Dr. Jekyll and a Mr. Hyde, where Jekyll looked normal but Hyde looked like a gorilla:

 

More Proof it wasn't Billy

Photos of Billy Lovelady were never provided for the public and no one on the Warren Commission ever saw Lovelady.  The only authentic photo of Billy we have from the approximate time of the assassination was taken by attorney Mark Lane in the 1964-65, which was included in Forgive My Grief (1966), by Penn Jones Jr.  It is included here and, as you can see, Lovelady was far too bald to be Doorman, and his cranium and facial bone structure do not look like Doorman's:

                          

Even the ears of Doorman can be compared with those of Oswald and of Lovelady, where again the features (indistinct as they may be) favor Oswald and undermine Lovelady.  But those who were working with the photo took measures to create ambiguity about the face of the man in the doorway, where it was Ralph Cinque's astute observation that the clothing was the decisive indicator of the identity of Doorman, not the face itself, that cracked the case wide open, but which, upon closer, minute inspection, the other comparable features of their faces provides extraordinary additional proof.

 

Rearranging Doorman's Face

Careful scrutiny and extensive study of the Altgens6 reveals that it was tampered with, where features of Lee Oswald’s face were changed to resemble Billy Lovelady.  The photograph proceeded through a series of stages until it was judged to be "good enough" to fool the public, which would remain the case until 2012, when a series of studies were published here at Veterans Today that lay out the case for alteration and obfuscation:  "JFK Special: Oswald was in the doorway, after all!", "JFK Special 2: Oswald was in the doorway, after all!", "JFK Special 3: Oswald was in the doorway, after all!", "JFK Special 4: Oswald was in the doorway, after all!", and "JFK Special 5: Oswald was in the doorway, after all!"  The case for Oswald as Doorman, which we are summarizing here, is simply overwhelming.

 

They were not completely successful, however, because a careful comparison of the left eyes of Oswald and of Lovelady demonstrates that the features of Doorman's left are the same as those of Oswald's left eye but differ from those of Lovelady.  It becomes a question of how much proof is required to concede the point that the man in the doorway was Lee and not Billy, where we are increasingly concerned about the sincerity of those who continue to deny their identity, when it has been established by multiple, convergent lines of proof.

 

“Out with Billy Shelley in front”

  It was astonishing to Professor Fetzer to learn–only last year, 2011–that the Assassination Records Review Board had discovered the handwritten interrogation notes of Will Fritz, the DPD Homicide Detective who had questioned Lee Oswald, which the ARRB had been released back in 2007. Those notes reported that Oswald had told Detective Fritz that he had been “out with Bill Shelley in front” during the assassination. Some of our critics, however, have claimed Lee was not talking about his location during the shooting but some time thereafter.  That makes no sense at all, however, since we know he was observed in and around the lunchroom at 11:50 AM, Noon, 12:15 PM and as late as 12:25 PM, the latter occasions by Carolyn Arnold, the executive secretary to the Vice President of the TSBD. So, Oswald could not have been referring to being outside with Bill Shelly before the shooting. Within 90 seconds following the assassination, he was accosted in the lunchroom by Roy Truly and Motorcycle Officer Marion Baker. 

Oswald could not have meant he was “out with Bill Shelly in front” after the shooting, because Bill Shelly had left immediately with Billy Lovelady and  walked down to the railroad tracks to look around.  When they (Lovelady and Shelly) returned, they re-entered the building through the backdoor of the TSBD and gone to the base of the back stairwell (in the northwest corner (rear) of the building).  So, Bill Shelly was definitely not out in front when Oswald was leaving leaving the building. What could make more sense than that, when his co-workers were outside watching the motorcade of the two most famous people in the word, that Lee would not have joined them? It would have been unbelievably remiss of Detective Fritz, moreover, not to have asked Lee Oswald where he was at the time of the shooting--that is the most pertinent question Will Fritz would have needed to ask.

That led me (Jim Fetzer) to revisit the Doorman question, even though it had long been written off, not only by "lone-nutters" but by most conspiracy theorists.  And that led to discussions with Dr. Ralph Cinque about the remarkable match in the clothing of Oswald and Doorman.  The uniqueness of Oswald’s clothing had never been seriously addressed before.  When you compare the clothing of Lee Oswald and Doorman in detail, however, you realize it has to be the same clothing, which means it had to be the same man.  The chance that Billy Lovelady just happened to dress himself exactly the same way as Lee Oswald that particular day, after all, is preposterous and has to have a probability of approximately zero.  Here is some of Ralph's reasoning from an earlier presentation that already has most of it right:


More on rearranging Altgens6

  We know the acquisition of new evidence or of novel hypotheses can make a difference to the likelihood of even the best supported alternatives.  But as more and more genuine evidence is acquired--even in the course of proving fakery--when an hypothesis is true, then the strength of its support should increase and be borne out by additional studies. That is the primary reason why every serious scientist should support further research.  It is like using a telescope to confirm findings that were originally made with the naked eye--which could be further explored using a radio telescope.  If those original findings were correct, then they will be confirmed, which remains the case no matter how controversial the subject: where it might involve determining the parentage of a child by means of DNA, confirming the precision of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity by means of atomic clocks, or re-investigating the guilt of a felon on death row for murder.  No matter how controversial the question or how surprising the results, the truth deserves to be pursued, nonetheless.  And, in this case, we have ascertained that the transformation of Altgens6 to neutralize it as proof of Oswald's innocence involved several steps or stages of these unexpected kinds:

 

Billy was in the doorway, but in the background, where his presence could be easily obscured.  The crucial consideration was to obfuscate the short-sleeved, red and white vertically stripped shirt he was wearing, where they could simply black out his face and his cap.  Since they were obliterating the face of the man immediately in front of him and to his right (whom we now believe to have been Bill Shelley), while leaving his arms raised to protect his view from the Sun, darkening his image was a piece of cake.  But they had to obfuscate that distinctive left lapel on Doorman's over shirt, which they did by moving most of the image of Fedora Man (whom we now believe to have been Jack Ruby) to conceal it, hoping that no one would notice that, in the process, they had obliterated Doorman's left shoulder:

 

Publishing the Altered Altgens

Once the photo had been edited, it was a simple matter to put it out via the AP, where Roy Schaeffer was at work at a Dayton newspaper and took it off the AP wire on Saturday, 23 November 1963. Here is a scan of my (Richard Hooke) own personal copy of the Oakland Tribune ‘EXTRA’ edition, which was printed the evening of 22 November 1963 and, assuming it is authentic and not a substitution to create a false record of its first publication, appears to have been the initial release of the Altgens6. Notice that President Kennedy’s head has been altered, apparently to accent its location.  The black hole at the center of the white, spiral nebula has been obscured.  Black Tie Man has been moved, Doorman's left shoulder is missing, the black man's profile has been added, Shelley's face has been obscured and Billy is opaque--all features we find in later and better versions of the photograph.

 

The caption, of course, is not correct, since it asserts that he is grasping his chest, when he is reaching for his throat, and this was only the second hit and not the fatal shot.  But the key points we have made should have been apparent from the beginning.  The photo has been altered; his left shoulder is missing; a face has been obfuscated; another has been introduced.  How much proof do we need to conclude that Altgens6 was reworked--just as the autopsy X-rays, the autopsy photographs, the backyard photos and the Zapruder film were revised?  They were going to do whatever they had to do to conceal the true causes of the death of our 35th president, which, as Douglas Horne, Inside the ARRB (2009), would reveal, even went to the extent to taking a cranial saw to the skull of JFK and enlarging it to make it look more like the effect of a shot from above and behind.  Altering the Altgens6 would have been an obvious thing to do--as obvious as Lee Oswald stepping out to watch the most famous couple in the world.

Why, after all, would Lee have said that he was “out front with Bill Shelley” if it were not true?  What convinced me (Jim Fetzer) that he had to have been there, however, is that surely they would only have altered the Altgens6, committing photographic fraud, because someone had been there who should not have been, where the only candidate for that role is the man they were planning to frame for the murder of President Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, the designated "patsy".  Otherwise, the probability of altering the photo in the doorway area would have been zero.  It would not do to have “the lone assassin” in a photo watching JFK pass by in the motorcade, which was taken at the same time the president was being shot, since Oswald, like the rest of us, could not have been in two places at the same time. That does not mean everyone is therefore going to accept the fact that Altgens6 has been altered, but it creates the presumption that those who persist in their denial are either unfamiliar with the evidence or cognitively impaired.

The Tucson Shooting: Jared Lee Loughner takes plea – GAME OVER!



Another patsy bites the dust… Facts covered-up or not released about Jared Lee Loughner that you should have heard if he had gone to trial. -- Stephanie Sledge


Stephanie Sledge | The Government Rag | 08Aug2012

It is game over for Jared Lee Loughner and just as expected, he will take the plea in the Tucson shootings. Last year, on 01/08/11, the alleged ‘lone wolf’ gunman went off on a mass murder spree when he arrived at the Safeway store on the corner of Ina and Oracle Street. With his Glock 19 and extended magazine, he let loose with a barrage of bullets and killed six people and injured 13, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Among the dead was federal Judge John M. Roll, 9-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, Gabriel Zimmerman, Dorothy Morris, Phyllis Schneck, and Dorwan Stoddart.
Immediately following the shooting, the story began to fall apart at the seams when witness testimony, 911 calls, police broadcasts, church stories, funeral fabrications, law enforcement tales, and personal hero accounts began to unravel a web of lies to the American public. For those that cannot remember the shooting, the day can be recalled when thinking about the non-stop political rhetoric that was well planned and intentionally spewed out of the television screens for weeks over gun control and mental health agenda on mainstream media. It was the day Sheriff Clarence Dupnik declared Arizona the ‘mecca’ for prejudice instead of counting bullet casings at the crime scene. We just recently seen this ‘Second Amendment’ and psychotic mayhem resurface again following the Aurora ‘Joker’ theatre shooting in Colorado.
Since the shooting in Tucson, the American People have not seen one ounce of ‘live’ footage of Jared Lee Loughner. The only thing that ‘We the People’ have been given is a bunch of nonsense and some photo-shopped pictures of a man that the real eyewitnesses say is not the man they seen at the scene that day. Who cares right? I do and I will tell you why I predicted this scenario in the first place.
Jared Lee Loughner cannot be brought to trial because his San Diego based attorney, Judy Clarke would be legally obligated to present evidence that would strike down the official story of the Tucson massacre. Judy Clarke also represented other known ‘false-flag’ defendants including Timothy McVeigh, who allegedly bombed the Alfred P Murrah US government building in Oklahoma City in 1995, in which 168 people died. Over 15 years later, the official story was challenged in a documentary called, A Noble Lie, which exposes the deceptive plays that were dealt to the American Public. Clarke also represented alleged 9/11 plotter and terrorist, Zacarias Moussaoui. She also represented Susan Smith, who was convicted in 1995 of killing her children by drowning them in a lake and blaming it on a black man. Lastly, she also represented Eric Robert Rudolph, aka the terrorist Olympic bomber and who was allegedly responsible for a number of bombings across the southern U.S. between 1996-98 and the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski.  Now, Judy Clarke is representing Jared Lee Loughner.  Go Figure.
**Update: Wikipedia changed their story on Judy Clarke following the release of this article and now claims, “contrary to claims made by the Associated Press, Clarke was not involved in the legal representation of Timothy McVeigh, the executed perpetrator of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.”
This story had to end because they cannot continue to hide a man that researchers and investigators have uncovered as facts. It resembles the same situation that Kurt Haskell faced when the ‘Underwear Bomber was scheduled for trial and suddenly, the man plead guilty. Kurt Haskell was due to testify at trial to give witness testimony of what he recalled when Umar Abdulmutallab tried to board Flight 253 on Christmas Day, 2009. It was expected to be the case that blew the government lies and deception out of the water over false flag terrorism. As usual, no justice for the public or even the patsy. This country has taken a turn for the worst when the public is ignoring that our sons and daughters are being set-up as patsies and the pharma-driven drug dealers are profiting off experimental behavioral modifying chemicals.
Two theories of how the Tucson ‘lone-wolf’ story would end would either involve Loughner killing himself in prison to be blamed on his schizophrenia or the infamous plea deal. Jared will be spared but only to hide him away in a prison cell to be forgotten. In a more severe analysis of the situation, it still would not be unlikely that the secretive man, they call Jared Lee Loughner will end up dead to end the charade that has been so in-your-face for over a year and a half. It’s game over for this mind-controlled patsy.
FAQS about Jared Lee Loughner that were not reported or covered-up by the media
  1. The mainstream media spliced and aired the 911 calls to make it appear that there was only one shooter at the scene and avoided airing the entire 911 calls that would have revealed descriptions of shooter(s) that did not match Jared Lee Loughner as well as reports that at least two people got away.
  2. September 2008 – Jared Loughner reported to Foothills Police Department that his identity has been stolen when a fake MySpace page was discovered. He claimed that he looked up on ‘PeekYou’ and found a page that had his ‘old picture’ when he had longer hair. He reported to the police that he thought his friend ‘Alex’ had done it. Interestingly, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp quickly sold the MySpace Company just over 5 months following the shooting, according to the NY Times. It was sold for $35 Million to a company called, Specific Media. Murdoch sold the MySpace Company for $545 Million less than what he paid! (2011, Steller; NY Times).
  3. In a background check, Loughner’s shows a history of living in San Diego, CA
  4. Loughner was NOT Jewish, he was Catholic according to an independent genealogy check compiled by Ron Kampeas, from Jewish World Review
  5. Jared Lee Loughner never appeared on the Pima County Sheriff’s Department booking roster on the day of the shooting.
  6. One eyewitness claims that the man at the scene the day of the shooting did not look like the photo(s) of the man that has been shown to the public for over a year and a half.
  7. No ‘live’ footage of Jared Lee Loughner has been shown to the public. Only courtroom drawings and alleged photoshopped mug shots have been shown to the public.
  8. Jared saw a psychiatrist by the name of Dr. Thomas Brittain in 2007. He had a private practice in Tucson and was sub-contracted by the Department of Defense (DOD). Dr. Brittain died earlier this year just two weeks prior to the death of Gabrielle Giffords’ author, Jeffrey Zaslow, columnist and former employee of Wall Street Journal and Sun Times.
  9. 911 calls and eyewitness testimony suggests that 3, possibly 4, shooters were at the scene that day based on descriptions of the shooter.
  10. Initial reports from eyewitnesses claim the ‘shooter’ was shot dead at the scene and other witnesses claimed they heard more than one gun being fired.
  11. Jared Lee Loughner performed ‘magic’ at the scene and fired more bullets than his Glock 19 and extended magazine could hold.
  12. Police dispatch tapes claim that the ‘gun’ was not found upon arrival at the scene and the “officers were looking for it in the grass that day.” These dispatch tapes do not coincide with the official story that the ‘heroes’ claimed they ‘took away his gun’ when they tacked him and secured the scene.
  13. No security was provided at the political rally at the Safeway store that day, which suggests that the police may have been given a stand-down order
  14. A witness claims ‘tents’ were being set-up at the scene two hours prior to the shooting. Police claim that the tents were brought in for forensic support following the shooting.
  15. Jared Lee Loughner listed a phone number on a Administrative Office of Courts, Arizona Superior Court (AOC) document in 2010 that came back under the name of ‘D. Green.’ Two people have come up in this case including Dallas Green, grandfather of Christina-Taylor Green and Dr. D. Lee Green who also did a studywith Dr. Lynne Fenton who was the psychiatrist for the recent alleged Aurora, Co shooter, James Holmes.www.economicpolicyjournal.com/ 2012/ 07/ dr-lynne-fentons-bio-that-was-deleted.html
  16. Jared was referred to the Juvenile system in Pima County following some teenage petty offenses and was hospitalized at Sonora Behavioral Center for treatment after a incident at school when he appeared drunk.
  17. The Atlantic featured an article with a video on the day of the shooting that shows two vehicles. The Nova appears to have old plates on it and does not match the description of a yellow Nova in a police report in 1994. I also found it interesting that the plate color is not the current AZ plates. I searched the AZ DMV and found that none of the 2010-11 plates matched the plates shown in the AP Press released vehicles. Most interesting, a search of previous license plates in Arizona turned up a maroon plate was issued from 1980-1997. This plate shown on Loughner’s car was plates from this period. Why then did the officer not notice his plates were approximately 14 years old when he was pulled over the morning of the shooting? In another police report filed in 1996, Amy Loughner reported her tags were stolen off her 72’ Chevy.  
    18. At no time did the mainstream question these discrepancies in the 911 calls. CNN interviewed one of the 911 callers who called the emergency right after the shooting. Emma McMahon was at the event with her mother (Mary Reed) who was allegedly shot three times. She told Anderson Cooper that she ran to the back of Walgreens and called 911 and then ran back to help her mother. The actual 911 tape had Emma calling in but told the dispatcher she was hiding in the back of Walgreens and never once mentioned her mother was shot or hurt. She did not mention her mother at all! This seems suspect considering most people would want to alert the medical staff if a loved one was injured. Six months after the shooting, the ‘Christina Taylor Green Fund’ was awarded to Emma. The scholarship includes a political leadership program by women’s political empowerment organization, according to Running Star. Emma, why did you forget to mention your mom?
    19. According to an article from the Arizona Daily Star, written by Fernanda Echavarri, titled,Firefighter refused call to Tucson shooting spree scene, a 28-year veteran firefighter, Mark Ekstrum refused to go to the scene citing “political bantering” as his reasoning. He was demonized that he refused to go to the scene that day but what was the real reason and what did Mr. Ekstrum mean by “political bantering?” Mr. Ekstrum refused to comment anymore about it after the initial interviews with local Tucson papers and could not be found for further questioning.
    20. Bill Ayer’s wife, Bernadine Dohrn has connections to the Pima County juvenile system. Bernardine Dohrn is now a professor at Northwestern University and is on the Board of Directors of an organization called, W. Haywood Burns Institute that believes high criminal behavior among the juvenile youth is caused by discrimination. The W. Haywood Burns Institute also aims to get the United Nations (U.N.) to take an active role in American juvenile justice, while charging fees to work with local governments. The non-profit group, based in San Francisco, has described itself as an organization that leads in the field of juvenile justice and ethnic and racial disparities reductionDohrn is also on the board of directors of the Northwestern University Child & Family Justice Center (2012, Northwestern Law Education). Recently, National Review published an article titled, The Dohrn Connection -Eric Holder’s DOJ funds a Dohrn-connected organization stated, “In 2010 and 2011, the Justice Department saw fit to give $400,000 in grants to an organization that lists Dohrn as a member of its board of directors: a $150,000 grant in September of 2010 and a $250,000 grant a year later.” Eric Holder is currently in trouble with the ‘illegal’ gun running scandal called, Fast & Furious, where the ATF illegally dealt guns to Mexico for the purpose of creating and promoting instability. They have justified their criminal behavior and Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry, was killed with a gun connected to the gun running scandal. As the scandal is currently unfolding in American history, the ‘gun-running’ scandal goes deeper into corruption than one could imagine, including – disarming Americans. Pima County Juvenile Court Center – Model Dependency Court participates in the Juvenile Detention Alternative programs, which ties to W. Haywood Burns Institute, which Bernadine Dohrn is on the board of directors.

    Bernadine Dohrn wanted by the FBI 1970
    21. Jared Lee Loughner claimed in 9thCircuit Court documents that he “was not an American citizen” and “he did not want to be forced medicated” because “he does not do drugs.”
    22.Jared Lee Loughner was sent to Springfield, Mo federal prison to be medicated back to sanity. Following the transfer to Springfield, the CIA advertised for an ‘Operational Psychologist’ who would be responsible for providing “behavioral science consultancy” for the intelligence community.

    23. The ATF denies that Jared Loughner’s gun was part of ‘Fast & Furious’ scandal but admitted they were worried about it.
    ******update: The Hill deleted their article about the ATF being ‘worried’ about Jared Lee Loughner’s Gun being involved in ‘Fast & Furious’ scandal. For some reason after this article was published, they decided to delete the original but other verifications can be found here or just perform a ‘startpage’ search.
