Reader James Finn has clipped two valuable stories from the MSM that illustrate the point Fletcher Prouty was making about Kennedy’s withdrawal plan already impacting the war economy and that fact that JFK’s death turned that deceleration around in a hurry. As an intro, Jim DiEugenio reviews Prouty’s position and Edward Epstein’s attack on it.

Oliver Stone in Quebec City (Part 1)

Paul Bleau, in this two-part series, recounts Oliver Stone’s recent visit to the Quebec City Film Festival, which included a retrospective of his career at the Le Clap Cinema as well as a special screening of his new documentary JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass. In part one of the series, Paul traces the backstory of the visit, Stone’s arrival, and the itinerary leading up to the panel discussion with Oliver and Jim DiEugenio.

Bob Fox has recently published on his blog Green Bay Bob Fox a very detailed and helpful four-part synopsis and review of Oliver Stone’s new documentary JFK: Destiny Betrayed. He reviews each of the four episodes individually and we include links to each article here for you to access with our recommendation.

Max Blumenthal is the first person in the media, or alternative media, to note the declension that David Talbot talked about in JFK Revisited, namely that the wave of assassinations in the sixties eventually impacted the social fabric of America. So much so to the point that today, we have become largely inured to the almost weekly gunshot atrocities that have plagued the country for years on end. And there seems to be no end in sight. Max’s father is Sid Blumenthal, who co-wrote Government by Gunplay back in 1976, which was about the assassinations of the sixties. Oliver Stone did an interesting interview about JFK Revisited with The Gray Zone months ago. Hopefully that helped inspire this perceptive piece by Max.

We link here to Jim DiEugenio’s debate with Robert Buzzanco over Vietnam and who Kennedy was. Buzzanco was upset about the publicity Oliver Stone was getting on liberal sites promoting the JFK Revisited documentaries, so he invited Noam Chomsky onto his podcast Green and Red, where they both blasted Oliver, all three of his films on JFK, and Kennedy, who Chomsky compared to Trump and Reagan. The next week, Buzzanco issued a challenge to anyone from the film to a debate. Jim accepted this challenge, but stipulated that it happen on a neutral site, Aaron Good's podcast American Exception.

CNN’s Apologia for LBJ, Part Two

Jim DiEugenio completes his review of this disappointing and less-than-candid four-part series about Johnson and his presidency, LBJ: Triumph and Tragedy, by reviewing the details of Johnson’s entrance into Vietnam and his escalation of the war that ultimately led to the fragmentation of the Democratic Party and a descent into militarism from which the nation has yet to recover.
