We remember Jack Ruby (1911-67)

leave a comment »

Jack Ruby died of cancer on this day in 1967.    

As far as we know, Ruby never changed his story about why he killed Oswald.     Apparently, Ruby did not want Jackie Kennedy to come to a trial.   He took that explanation or story to his grave.

A few years before, millions of people watched Jack Ruby, a Dallas businessman, shoot Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged killer of President Kennedy.    Oswald died shortly after.

It happened as the authorities were taking Oswald to another jail.   It also occurred about 48 hours after the assassination of the president.

To say the least, the shooting shocked the nation.  It also opened the door to a ton of conspiracy theories about the president’s assassination.  

For the record, I believe that Oswald shot President Kennedy on his own.  I came to that conclusion after reading Gerald Posner’s “Case closed” in the 1990’s.

Reid said what about Trump?

leave a comment »

We just heard that former Senator Harry Reid is very ill.   We wish him well.  

Nevertheless, it is astonishing to read what he said about President Trump

Harry Reid, the former Senate Majority Leader who is suffering from pancreatic cancer, has given a rare interview in which he compares a “weird” President Trump unfavorably to mafia bosses who “are really good with what they do.” He told The New York Times: “Trump is an interesting person. He is not immoral but is amoral. Amoral is when you shoot someone in the head, it doesn’t make a difference. No conscience.”

When the writer Mark Leibovich suggested there was a hint of grudging respect in Reid’s words, he added: “I think he is without question the worst president we’ve ever had… We’ve had some bad ones, and there’s not even a close second to him.”

Reid refused to say whether he backed his successor Chuck Schumer’s tactics in dealing with Trump. “I do not call Schumer,” he said. “I call him once in a while — not weekly… I talk to Nancy often. I love Nancy Pelosi.”

The Times piece states, bluntly, that Reid “does not have long to live.”   

Again, we wish him well but his words are shocking.     

We remember Senator Reid as a total partisan who went as far as accuse then candidate Mitt Romney of not paying his taxes.  He said that without evidence as the majority leader during a speech on the Senate floor. 

To my knowledge, he never regretted peddling the lie.

On the matter of illegal immigration, he was always an opportunist:  Harry Reid 1993 No Sane Country Would Give Illegals Citizenship!

In other words, I never got the impression that Senator Reid was a man with much of a “conscience”.  Reid was all about winning elections and telling people what they wanted to hear.
