    Default New Book [coming soon] From Joan Mellen About LBJ et al.

    I was just sent the cover by the publisher's cover artist. When I know more, I'll post more...but obviously she will tell her version of the Mac Wallace relationship with LBJ....but much more, I know. She claims to have lots of new dirt on LBJ...and much old dirt is already known and she will also cover that in detail.

    coming: Bloomsbury Publishers, September 2016

    What happened to Mellen's last book that slandered A. Nathan Darby for his 31 point identification of the TSBD handprint as Mac Wallace's?

    Her take on Darby will be in this book....but that will be a very small part, I think. She hasn't told me all she says she has to document her version, so I can't comment until I read the book. I know well the other version and find it very convincing. Joan will have to have extraordinary evidence for her extraordinary [apparent] claims...... I'm more looking forward to new dirt on LBJ!.....

    More fact checking needs to be done. Nothing should be taken at face value. When I read a book, I want to be left with an impression of what was actually going on. The elephants in the room.:

    I think it changes things.....

    The back story in its simplest form is that David Baldwin’s wife, Mildred Lyons emerges as the stepdaughter of Monte Lemann, the stepsister of Stephen B. Lemann and his brother Thomas, (who is the father of Nicholas B. Lemann), the sister-in-law of Edward M. Baldwin, and the daughter-in-law of Adele Ziegler Baldwin Raworth, who was the sister of Harold J. Ziegler, father-in-law of Jim Garrison. David Gilmore Baldwin, III and his brother, attorney Edward M. Baldwin, were first cousins of Jim Garrison’s wife, Leah Elizabeth Ziegler Garrison.

    (Oliver Stone spent $41 million, I spent two weeks.....)

    Garrison investigation witness Perry Russo filed a lawsuit claiming defamation, against Conde Nast – GQ. Nicholas B. Lemann, attributed in the court record,
    UNDISPUTED FACTUAL BACKGROUND: …The GQ article was a personal memoir[1] of Lemann’s recollections of growing up in New Orleans during District Attorney Jim Garrison’s prosecution of Clay Shaw for allegedly conspiring to assassinate JFK. The 1991 movie release, JFK sparked renewed interest in the assassination as well as the prosecution itself of Clay Shaw. The film was purportedly based on Garrison’s book, On the Trail of Assassins, and sympathetically portrayed Garrison.

    The GQ article published by Lemann took a different slant, expressing his view that Shaw’s prosecution was built on flimsy evidence and was a tremendous embarrassment to the city.[2] ….

    Unredacted Episode 1: Transcript of Interview with Joan Mellen

    Joan Mellen is the author of A Farewell to Justice: Jim Garrison, JFK's Assassination, and the Case That Should Have Changed History. This interview was conducted on 22 Feb 2006.
    .......
    Rex: Joan..... One, there's a story in the Grand Jury testimony told by three different parties involving Sheridan when he came out to do his NBC White Paper, having a meeting set up with an organized crime figure named Zachary Strate that was apparently set up by either Malcolm O'Hara, a judge who was a political enemy of Garrison's, and a lawyer named Edward Baldwin. I wonder if you might tell that story about what that meeting was all about?...

    ......

    JOAN: - when Baldwin was present, he was a CIA asset, his brother worked for the International Trade Mart and Clay Shaw, David Baldwin, and these, these are CIA people. Malcolm O'Hara is sitting there - he doesn't know what hit him - and eventually Strate did not cooperate, and he went up there, and he attacked Sheridan - of course, Sheridan had immunity - nothing anyone could say about Sheridan whether in court, affidavits signed against Sheridan, Sheridan had immunity as a National Security Agency asset, cleared for FBI work, cleared for CIA work, working for the Department of Justice -......

    Peter Janney's uncle was Frank Pace, chairman of General Dynamics who enlisted law partners Roswell Gilpatric and Luce's brother-in-law, Maurice "Tex" Moore, in a trade of 16 percent of Gen. Dyn. stock in exchange for Henry Crown and his Material Service Corp. of Chicago, headed by Byfield's Sherman Hotel group's Pat Hoy. The Crown family and partner Conrad Hilton next benefitted from TFX, at the time, the most costly military contract award in the history of the world. Obama was sponsored by the Crowns and Pritzkers. So was Albert Jenner Peter Janney has preferred to write of an imaginary CIA assassination of his surrogate mother, Mary Meyer, but not a word about his Uncle Frank.

    "Extraordinary evidence"! Ya a "note in Nathan Darby's file by some alleged FBI- or other such creep agent- lying about him.
    In my opinion Mellon sets out an idea then attempts to prove it..
    Like in her Garrison book, she hates Bobby so insisted that Bobby sent CIA stooge Walter Sheridan to
    "sabotage Garrison". Bullshit.
    I wonder if those who assisted her in this book will get any credit: Like Richard Bartholomew, Rachel Rendish and myself.
    I certainly will not be buying it.

    Well I just might call IAI and let them know they're being slandered again.
