Final Judgment

Media Complicity in the Kennedy Assassination

NOTE: The information below is derived from Michael Collins Piper's Final Judgment. My role is that of a reviewer, and all credit for the research must be given to Mr. Piper. I urge everyone to purchase a copy of this book. Final Judgment is published by The Center for Historical Review, 132 Third Street, SE, Washington, DC 20003 (1-888-699-6397)

"Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001

As I conclude this series on Michael Collins Piper's Final Judgment, the last piece of the puzzle that we need to examine is the media's role in covering up JFK's execution on November 22, 1963. As we've seen in earlier pieces, the organization with the greatest ways, means, and motive to pull-off this heinous act was the CIA, with direct assistance from the Mossad and Meyer Lansky's international crime syndicate. To further indict the spooks at Langley, all one has to do is investigate how extensively they have infiltrated the American media during the latter half of the 20th century. And if anyone hollers 'conspiracy theory' over these accusations, please remember this adage: something is no longer a theory once it has been proven to be true. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Carl Bernstein supports this point in his famous October 20, 1977 article for Rolling Stone when he wrote about how 400 CIA-funded journalists had infiltrated the American media under "Operation Mockingbird." He wrote: "[Joseph] Alsop is one of more than 400 American journalists who in the past 25 years have secretly carried out assignments for the CIA - ACCORDING TO DOCUMENTS ON FILE AT CIA HEADQUARTERS!" Also, in the 1950s and 60s, CBS News was nicknamed the "CIA Broadcasting System."

So we need to ask ourselves, who had the resources and ability to implement the final step of this carefully-crafted assassination? The answer is provided by Jerry Pollicoff in Government by Gunplay (Signet Books)." The Kennedy assassination cover-up has survived so long only because the press, confronted with the choice of believing what it was told or examining the facts independently, chose the former."

To keep the people of this country confused, the media pushed every theory imaginable except that of Israeli involvement. As filmmaker Oliver Stone told The New York Times on December 20, 1991, "When a leader of any country is assassinated, the media normally ask: what political forces were opposed to this leader and would benefit from his assassination?" But as Michael Collins Piper points out in Final Judgment, Oliver Stone failed to pursue the Israeli angle, possibly because the executive producer of his JFK movie was a man named Arnon Milchan, who Alexander Cockburn said in The Nation magazine on May 18, 1992 was "probably Israel's largest arms dealer." In addition, Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi called Milchan a "Mossad Man."

What our media was essentially called upon to do was:
1) Forward and support the Warren Commission's findings
2) Perpetuate the "lone nut" theory
3) Attack dissenters
4) Prevent any discussion of Israeli involvement

As Michael Collins Piper shows, at the center of this cover-up was WDSU media, which was operated by the Stern family who were major league contributors to the ADL. Working in conjunction with this news outlet and the major networks was CIA mastermind James Jesus Angleton. These forces were at the center of a conspiracy to feed the media false leads (misinformation), and to steer any investigation away from the true impetus of the Kennedy assassination.

Quite possibly the most important factor that was ignored by the media was an entity named Permindex that acted as the point of convergence for the CIA, Mossad, and the Lansky Mob. Who, you may ask, was Permindex? Well, Permindex was a weapons supplier located in Rome that also laundered money and had ties to the CIA, Meyer Lansky, and the state of Israel.

Although I won't be able to delve into this topic as thoroughly as Michael Collins Piper did in Final Judgment, below is a brief overview of this entity's role in the Kennedy Assassination. The Chairman of the Board of Permindex was Major Louis M. Bloomfield (previously mentioned in this series) who was one of the two primary figures in establishing both the Mossad and the state of Israel. Bloomfield also held half the shares in Permindex, was employed by J. Edgar Hoover in the FBI's infamous "Division Five," and became a front man for the powerful Bronfman family. The Bronfman's, you must remember, were bootleggers (like Joe Kennedy), who built their empire via the Lansky crime syndicate.

One of the other chief shareholders in Permindex was Tibor Rosenbaum, who established in Geneva an entity called BCI (Banque de Credit International). Rosenbaum was also the Director of Finance & Supply for the Mossad, while his BCI was the main money laundering arm for Meyer Lansky. Finally, BCI was intimately connected with the Mossad, while its founder, Tibor Rosenbaum, was called the "Godfather" of the Israeli nation.

Now, when we consider how crucial the state of Israel was to people like David Ben-Gurion and the above listed men and how threatened they felt in regard to its very survival, it becomes more than coincidental that all these forces (the Mossad, CIA, and Lansky's Mob) converged around Permindex. Each had direct ties to this entity, and each had their own reasons as to why they wanted Kennedy dead. Yet what angle did the American media pursue? The lone-nut theory where a stumblebum like Lee Harvey Oswald pulled off the biggest coup of the 20th century! It's beyond incredible.

Then, to cover their tracks and eliminate their "patsy" (who was obviously going to start singing), the conspirators brought in Jack Ruby to kill Oswald. But again the media failed in their duties to tell the truth. Rather than simply being a "grieving American" that felt compelled to kill Oswald to spare Jackie Kennedy any further heartache, Jack Ruby (real last name: Rubinstein) was a member of Meyer Lansky's Jewish Mob! Why didn't Time Magazine let us in on this little tidbit of information?

Or, why hasn't journalist John Henshaw's "lost" film footage been released where Jack Ruby is led by Justice Department official through Dallas police headquarters past the screeners, FBI agents, and detectives that were supposed to secure the premises?

This is PRIME EVIDENCE! Why hasn't it ever been brought to the public's attention?

Even more peculiar is Judge Earl Warren's decision to NOT let Jack Ruby testify before his Commission. Why? Maybe it had something to do with the fact that the Warren Commission was stacked with members of the Council on Foreign Relations, a Bilderberg attendee (Gerald Ford, who was later rewarded with the Presidency after Nixon was taken down), and Allen Dulles, who was FIRED by JFK! Think about how absurd this situation is. John Kennedy fired CIA Director Allen Dulles and threatened to shatter his organization into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the wind. Yet what happened? Allen Dulles was appointed to the Warren Commission to 'investigate' the murder of the man who fired him, and whose organization was integral in his assassination.

Researcher Dorothy Kilgallen told the Philadelphia News on February 22, 1964, "One of the best kept secrets of the Ruby Trial is the extent to which the Federal government is cooperating with the defense. The unprecedented alliance between Ruby's lawyers and the Department of Justice in Washington may provide the case with the one dramatic element it has lacked: Mystery."

There are countless other peculiarities that the media could have exposed, such as how the Kennedy's had future, large-scale plans to undermine the Rothschild-controlled Federal Reserve and how it had a stranglehold on the American economy and money system, but instead they were content to sell their souls and say that the ENTIRE debacle was carried out by a lone-nut assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. And, to this day, even though the Church Committee found in the1970's that a conspiracy to kill President Kennedy existed and that our government was involved, the media and our public schools continue to advance the lone-nut theory. Amazing.

But Michael Collins Piper goes further, much further, listing the ACTUAL names of those who were responsible for John F. Kennedy's assassination, the primary planners who had first-hand knowledge of the murder, plus the secondary players and those on the periphery. I strongly urge all of you to purchase this book and find out for yourselves who was behind this grisly act. Once you dive inside Final Judgment you'll see the roles each of the below entities played:
The Mossad, the blackened heart
The CIA, the demented mind
The Lansky Mob, the muscle
The American media, the blind eyes and muted mouth

Herve Lamarr, in Farewell America, sums up the situation as such: "President Kennedy's assassination was the work of magicians. It was a stage trick, complete with accessories and false mirrors, and when the curtain fell the actors, and even the scenery, disappeared. But the magicians were not illusionists, but professionals, artists in their way."

That's an incredible difference from a disillusioned "lone nut" assassin who pulled off this grandiose act all by himself. And if you think this horrendous situation has changed even one iota in the last forty years, you’re sadly mistaken. To prove this point, I'll close with this excerpt from an interview with Greg Palast in the March edition of Hustler magazine. It concerns the premier cover-up artist Dan Rather, whose ENTIRE career was made off the Kennedy assassination.

Palast: I feel sick at heart when I see Rather because he's actually a journalist. He came on my program, Newsnight, in England and said, I can't report the news. I'm not allowed to ask questions. We're going to send our children and our husbands into the desert now and I can't ask a question because I will be lynched. He looked defeated and awful, and I was thinking, why am I feeling sorry for this guy who is worth millions? He should turn to the camera and say, Well, now for the truth. Over to you, Greg, in London. The problem is that he can't report the story of the intelligence agents who are told not to look at the bin Laden family, not to look at Saudi funding of terror.

Hustler: What makes Rather afraid to do his job?

Palast: It's not just that there are brutal shepherds like Rupert Murdoch out there to beat the dickens out of any reporter that asks the wrong questions; it's all about making news on the cheap to some extent they know that there are certain things you cannot say. Rather says he would be necklaced for telling the truth.

Regrettably, the cover-up that took place with the Kennedy assassination forty years ago is exactly the same as it is today with the 9/11 cover-up. As yesterday, as today.
