Thread: Oswald's Game Eviscerated at CTKA

  1. Default Oswald's Game Eviscerated at CTKA

    http://www.ctka.net/2014_reviews/Davison%20review.html

    Jean Davison is so hyperactive at JFK Facts, and her lousy book is actually admired by Von Pein and McAdams. So I decided to go back and reread it.

    Its even worse today in light of the new files and research.

    Nothing but a cover up book about Oswald and Marguerite.

    Today it looks like a pile of junk. How anyone can take this woman seriously eludes me. It doesn't look like she left her living room or picked up the phone once to write her lousy book.

    I hate those kinds of writers, writers who do nothing but cherry pick previous sources to arrive at a preconceived conclusion. Here its Oswald killed JFK for Castro.

    Oh really Jean? Was this before or after the Castroite left Banister's office?

    It's really a great service you perform. You read the crap so that we don't have to. Thanks Jim.

    BTW, 'Reclaiming Parkland' is 'state-of-the-art', just like Oliver Stone said. Fantastic effort and essential reading.

    I remember reading her book a long time ago. Has anyone ever read Jim Moore's book CONSPIRACY OF ONE? Worst lone-nutter book of all time. Moore is probably the only person in the world who thinks JFK hasn't been wounded when we see him raising his hands to his throat in the Z-film. In the photo section he describes Frame 228: "Most researchers believe Kennedy is reacting to his first wound here. Instead, the President is responding in fright to a first, missed shot." "The President's hands are rising to cover his face and Governor Connally is reacting to the sound of the shot."

    Maybe we need to collate a book list of all the stinkers that have been published and pushed. A community service to save the uninitiated and time poor a lot of bother.
    "I think it would be a good idea." Mahatma Gandhi, when asked what he thought of Western civilization.

    The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it.
    Karl Marx.

    "Well, he would, wouldn't he?" Mandy Rice-Davies, 1963, replied Ms Rice Davies when the prosecuting counsel pointed out that Lord Astor denied an affair or having even met her.

    Would the list of stinkers be a list of poorly researched or derivative works, or would it be a list of Lone Nut books?

    (There would be some overlap, obviously)
    "All that is necessary for tyranny to succeed is for good men to do nothing." (unknown)

    James Tracy: "There is sometimes an undue amount of paranoia among some conspiracy researchers that can contribute to flawed observations and analysis."

    Gary Cornwell (Dept. Chief Counsel HSCA): "A fact merely marks the point at which we have agreed to let investigation cease."

    Alan Ford: "Just because you believe it, that doesn't make it so."

    Completely overlap IMO...

    There are lots of mediocre-to-bad conspiracy books out there, but I'm not going to make a list because I don't want to encourage further dissension in the research community.

    There are a lot of bad books on the case on the conspiracy side also.

    Like Ultimate Sacrifice, and LBJ: Mastermind of the JFK Assassination to name just two. And we have criticized them at CTKA.

    So we don't play favorites. A bad pro-conspiracy book to me can be as bad as a Warren Commission apologia.

    Why I did this one is because Jean Davison is so loud and arrogant at JFK Facts. Plus, McAdams and Von Pein think she is a serious person and her book deserves respect.

    Well, baloney. Her book is a joke from chapter one all the way to the end. As i showed, its a cover up book all the way. She could not have missed some of the things she did not include. Plus, she never left her house to do any research. So there is nothing new in her text.

    Its a 95 % rehash of Epstein, PJM and the WC. ANd the stuff she throws in to give it a twist for Castro is so weak its transparent camouflage.

    But I will say this: besides McAdams and Von Pein, there is one other person who liked it. Drumroll please:

    David Phillips.

    When he was trying to convince Bugliosi to write a book on the JFK case, he recommended two books, Marina and Lee and Oswald's Game.

    What does it say when one of the chief suspects in the case likes your book? Also the guy who was running the CIA's anti FPCC program, and therefore was influential in controlling Oswald in the last few months of his life.

    In her book, she vouches for Phillips' story about Oswald meeting Kostikov and a missing tape in which Oswald tried to make a deal by exchanging information for a trip to Russia. She actually says this sounded like Oswald. (p. 209)

    Oh really Jean? When the voice on the tapes was someone else?

    Who can takes this woman or her book seriously? Well, David Phillips of course.

    Does anyone know much about Jean Davison's background? There is an anthropologist with that name, and a woman who wrote a book about mental illness -

    I don't know if they're all the same person.
