The Kennedys and Civil Rights: How the MSM Continues to Distort History
A four-part critical essay by Jim DiEugenio
Today the United States stands a nation divided along ethnic and racial crevices so wide that they are more like chasms. We are witness to shootings of African Americans by police, of Jews in synagogues due to wacky rightwing conspiracy theories, and to pipe bombs sent to those who criticize Donald Trump's manipulation of prejudice. When the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville ended with three dead and over thirty injured, Trump replied that there were fine people on both sides. This, about demonstrators carrying swastikas and confederate flags. But what does one expect from a president who employs the likes of Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka in the White House?
As we demonstrate in this series, the precipice upon which this nation sits is not at all a recent phenomenon, but has deep historical roots. In the first of four parts, we show how it extends back to the utter failure of Reconstruction and some very unwise decisions by the Supreme Court. This speaks directly to the problem of consistently appointing judges from the Federalist Society. We also delineate how other presidents actually cooperated with these injustices and failed to do their duty in this field. This left a nearly intractable mess for John F. Kennedy in 1961. But what will also become clear is how he worked against these huge odds to turn this situation around. What is more, we will reveal how he was actually planning an assault on the inner city tinderboxes at the time of his death. We further introduce two hidden heroes in this struggle who are pretty much ignored by the media and academia: Charles Houston and David Hackett. Read on for a story the MSM and main-line historians will not tell about the crisis we face today.

- Major Ralph P. Ganis, The Skorzeny Papers: Evidence for the Plot to Kill JFK Written by Michael Le Flem
From Michael's conclusion: Ganis’ book is an uncomfortable, freewheeling careen down strange dead-end tracks, with unannounced detours through cold dark streets full of faceless characters, and later, journeys through mirror-filled fun houses of speculation, with a final twist and turn that spits you out right over Niagara Falls, barrel and all.
