Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 10  Num. 74
                     ("Quid coniuratio est?")


By Sherman H. Skolnick (with Brian F. Redman)

COKIE ROBERTS is the daughter of the late Rep. HALE BOGGS. Hale Boggs expressed doubts about the Warren Commission findings regarding the assassination of JFK, but daughter Cokie, an apparent journalist, has no big problem with the Warren Report. Cokie's brother is THOMAS H. BOGGS, JR. He is of the law firm, Patton, Boggs, and Blow. Partner in that law firm was RON BROWN, the late Commerce Secretary. On the day Ron Brown died under suspicious circumstances, Cokie's brother Thomas Boggs was himself the target of an assassination attempt. WHAT DOES COKIE KNOW ABOUT IT???

Some reporters rise to the very top, by showing they can help cover up political assassinations.

ITEM: Dan Rather, a relatively unknown reporter at the time, was standing in the shadows under the Triple Overpass Bridge, near Dealey Plaza in Dallas, awaiting the President Kennedy motorcade. Rather later claimed he was there to hand some rolls of film to a messenger. Right near where he was standing was a hidden storm sewer, not discovered for 25 years after, from which one of the assassins shot JFK from straight in front. Also right near Dan Rather was the infamous Grassy Knoll where, from behind a picket fence, another assassin, in co-ordinated military-style fire, blew away the President.

The motorcade, after having slowed down for a hairpin turn, passed right under Rather's nose. He was the only one on the planet to rightaway be able to look right close-up into the murder car, to confirm for the military and CIA plotters that Kennedy had been mortally wounded.

As a cover-up pay-off, Dan Rather was made CBS White House correspondent, later their evening network news anchor face, paid millions of dollars. He hosted a CBS faked up documentary contending JFK and Dr. King were murdered by lone assassins.

ITEM: Congressman Hale Boggs, of Louisiana, sat on the Warren Commission, which concluded that President Kennedy was slain by a lone assassin, that there was no conspiracy. Later, in 1971 and '72, Boggs began grumbling that the Warren Report was false and more, that J. Edgar Hoover's FBI not only helped cover up the JFK murder but blackmailed Congress with massive wire-tapping and spying. {1} Boggs fingered Warren Commission staff member Arlen Specter as a major cover-up artist. For the Warren Report, Specter created the fake scenario of "the magic bullet," to frame the dead Lee Harvey Oswald, the CIA patsy, as the lone assassin -- a single bullet that supposedly mortally wounded JFK and went on to severely wound John Connally, yet the bullet emerged still in pristine condition. (Specter later became U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, with the aid of CIA.)

Boggs knew that Richard M. Nixon was in or near Dallas from several days before the JFK murder to late that day, Nixon being part of the military and CIA planning group. (To supervise the assassination, the group met on the nearby ranch of Nixon's crony, Clint Murchison the oil man, as described in the book "Farewell America," written under the pen-name James Hepburn, and published about 1969 in Europe, in English and 14 other languages -- a best-seller in Europe but suppressed in the U.S. In the appendix of the book is the only known list of secret JFK political assassination documents, implicating the CIA, in the National Archives.)

In 1972, a month before Nixon was re-elected President, Congressman Boggs' plane disappeared on a flight to Alaska. Privately, investigators later said the plane was found, but the monopoly press, the military, and the CIA publicly proclaimed the plane could not be located. CONGRESSMAN BOGGS' DAUGHTER, COKIE ROBERTS, was a lowly-paid mouthpiece for National Public Radio, supervised by the Rockefellers. (John D. Rockefeller IV's wife once headed NPR.) In an interview on the radio (5/21/93), Cokie Roberts said she and her mother Corrine (Lindy) Boggs, who later took her husband's seat in Congress, went to Alaska and figured out Hale Boggs' plane must be at the bottom of the sea and were troubled by the statements of "conspiracy theorists."

Cokie Roberts once made the false statement that her late father believed Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin and that she believed it also. With Oliver Stone's movie "JFK" escalating talk of conspiracy, Cokie was paid off by being made top dog of ABC Network's Sunday morning one-hour political cover-up show.

Cokie Roberts' brother, Thomas H. Boggs, Jr., is part of a highly corrupt group of lawyer/lobbyists, Patton, Boggs, and Blow. His partner in the firm was Ron Brown, once a top honcho of the Democratic National Committee. Ron Brown was known as "THE COLLECTOR," chief blackmailer and extortionist for Bill Clinton. Facing imminent federal criminal bribery charges, Ron Brown, in April, 1996, as Secretary of Commerce, died in a plane crash in Croatia. Some claim it was sabotage. At the time of the crash, Cokie's brother, Thomas H. Boggs, Jr., Brown's partner, was himself the target of an assassination attempt. Boggs' firm fronts for Guatemalan big businessmen who, on behalf of the American CIA, supervise "death squads" murdering dissidents. {2}

Prior to his last plane flight, Ron Brown confided to his business partners that when he is prosecuted he intended to finger Bill and Hillary Clinton as part of the bribery schemes. But dead men are not prosecuted and don't talk.

ITEM: During his 1988 primary election bid for President, Al Gore said, if elected, he intended to get to the bottom of who assassinated President Kennedy, which would have to include the CIA. Now, Cokie Roberts and Dan Rather are part of a team sworn to blow a hole in the line of succession to the presidency, by falsely scandalizing Al Gore. This, so that their man, John D. Rockefeller IV, calling himself "Jay" to be cute, could become President without an election.

Apparently, the secret agenda now is that Clinton will not be forced out by scandal and threats of impeachment, until Al Gore is first removed and Jay Rockefeller inserted as Vice President. Then, upon the downfall of Clinton, Jay Rockefeller becomes President without an election. If Al Gore does not "go quietly," will he be the target of political assassination? Some contend that Cokie Roberts' brother, Thomas H. Boggs, Jr., and his confederates, are part of a dirty scheme to falsely accuse Al Gore of various offenses of which Clinton himself is primarily guilty.

---------------------------<< Notes >>--------------------------- {1} Regarding Congressman Boggs' doubts about the Warren Commission: see the Oliver Stone movie, "JFK." In that film, District Attorney Jim Garrison chats, while on a commercial airliner, with a certain congressman (portraying Rep. Hale Boggs.) That congressman voices skepticism to Garrison about the Warren Report, saying, "That dog won't hunt."

{2} From The Wall Street Journal, 3/23/82, "The Power Brokers":

It is hardly a secret, for instance, that the firm's [Patton, Boggs, and Blow's] foreign clients -- including retainers of $100,000 a year from the government of Oman and $60,000 from Amigos del Pais, the Guatemalan business group -- are based on political connections...

...[Patton, Boggs, and Blow's] lobbying operations have a distinctly bipartisan coloration. The Democratic side is led by Mr. Boggs, former Congressman O'Hara, former Sen. William Hathaway of Maine and Ronald Brown, a former deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee and a top adviser to Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's 1980 presidential campaign.
