[7] The actor playing the part of Bobby Axelrod in the Netflix series “Billions” (though he is a hedge fund manager) would probably be an archetype of a high-flying investment banker / venture capitalist. Another one was the Michael Douglas character Gordon Gekko in Wall Street, or Jordan Belfort played by Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, though that one is probably a bit “over the top” as to his addictive character traits. Though none of these actors’ characters necessarily have anything in common, other than their desire to make great sums of money, in common to Mr. Curme, apparently.

[8] First, in 2007, Jack White posted a newspaper article from a small-town newspaper in Texas, which was a copy of an article originally published in a small-town Massachusetts journal (which could not be found in an old newspaper archive, evidently due to both having been from small town newspapers — an article apparently not appearing in any others as well).

It was about this time when a number of other researchers began disrespecting and ridiculing Jack White for certain things on which they disagreed with him, in some cases due to his assertions of widespread photo alterations in the JFK assassination, an opinion now more widely shared and understood, even despite the more rudimentary state of the photographic arts in 1963. This quote came from a thread on Education Forum on May 8, 2011:

“I studied all the JFK photos and movies for thirty years very intensively, before realizing that ALL images are suspect, likely tampered with, faked or altered…and cannot be relied on forensically as proof of anything. Phelps is about where I was 25 years ago…basically trusting that all photos and films are genuine.”

Second [example], comes from material developed by John Kirsch and posted on various forums over several years culminating in 2015-2017.

[9] Spartacus Educational “Robert Trumbull Crowley”:

Excerpted from “Primary Sources” No. 3: TBR News:

When published material concerning the CIA’s actions against Kennedy became public in 2002, it was discovered to the CIA’s horror, that the missing documents had been sent by an increasingly erratic Crowley to another person and these missing papers included devastating material on the CIA’s activities in South East Asia to include drug running, money laundering and the maintenance of the notorious ‘Regional Interrogation Centers’ in Viet Nam and, worse still, the Zipper files proving the CIA’s active organization of the assassination of President John Kennedy..

A massive, preemptive disinformation campaign was readied, using government-friendly bloggers, CIA-paid “historians” and others, in the event that anything from this file ever surfaced. The best-laid plans often go astray and in this case, one of the compliant historians, a former government librarian who fancied himself a serious writer, began to tell his friends about the CIA plan to kill Kennedy and eventually, word of this began to leak out into the outside world.

The originals had vanished and an extensive search was conducted by the FBI and CIA operatives but without success. Crowley’s survivors, his aged wife and son, were interviewed extensively by the FBI and instructed to minimize any discussion of highly damaging CIA files that Crowley had, illegally, removed from Langley when he retired. Crowley had been a close friend of James Jesus Angleton, the CIA’s notorious head of Counterintelligence. When Angleton was sacked by DCI William Colby in December of 1974, Crowley and Angleton conspired to secretly remove Angleton’s most sensitive secret files our of the agency. Crowley did the same thing right before his own retirement , secretly removing thousands of pages of classified information that covered his entire agency career.

  1. Well-done, sir. I wish to note that I only saw a 2002 MFF tax document, among the “Mary Dean”materials, that got Mary so mad at me. Certainly, had I stolen them as later claimed, why would I have asked Mary and Carol Ann about them? The 2002 tax document allowed me, in 2006, to use numbers included on it to find the MFF tax records in the public domain, which I then disseminated to the research community to show the connection between David Lifton and the MFF. That caused the MFF’s tax and business records to be removed to another state, I was told, where by law they could not be disclosed to the public. Please correct me if they are still in “Boston.” I also witnessed Mary destroy many index cards from her “earliest” notes which were hand-written, as well as two personal letters from Marina, who she said often visited her. Mary’s son, Jimmy, showed me a Christmas card
    Marina had sent to him. To understand the great bulk of materials Mary gave to me, it filled the entire trunk of my car, including stacks of THE GUARDIAN. I was then struck by behind (have the police report) the same day and was hospitalized with a concussion: antifreeze in the trunk split open and spilled over some of the materials. After I got out of the hospital, before the car (which was totaled) was hauled off, my sister and my son rescued what was not ruined. Together, we found the “Mary Dean” records and tax documents in the stack of LIFE magazines. There was also a negative of Mary and Buck IN NEW ORLEANS, by a riverboat, and a letter written to Mary from Memphis by, apparently, a sister or cousin. So there were other odd items, too, in the stack of Life magazines. Mary was going to burn them, and in fact, a big city trash bin in the backyard had been set on fire by somebody when I was at her Holland address for the last time. Mary had also given me all her children’s daily (Catholic) Missals, and even several pairs of expensive shoes– she had dozens of pairs of Salvatore Ferragamos in her bedroom, worth thousands of dollars — stacked brand-new in rows in their original shoe-boxes by her closet. I was so naive and trusting of her. You have provided an accurate picture of The Dragon Lady. Thank you. –Judyth Vary Baker -Apr. 5, 2022-


  2. Judith we spoke over the internet many years ago. You had just set up in Holland and feared for your life. Stiffed by the millionaire who set up his own murder solved website. I told you about the graduate doctors from Liverpool who were on the coach to Mexico with Lee. You said, ” Ask them, did he mention cancer to them”.
    I believed you immediately. I know you are a true and Honest person.
    Best wishes for your future.
