Truly outlandish claims

Lord have mercy! Is JC Wilcox completely bananas?



He claims that Lincoln and Kennedy were assassinated, and Reagan almost assassinated, because they were trying to protect America from foreign countries and (in the case of Lincoln) for opposing a new world order.

John Wilkes Booth was staunchly pro-slavery and believed that by assassinating Abraham Lincoln he could revive the confederate cause. The assassination had absolutely nothing to do with foreign affairs.

John Hinckley, who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan, was a nut case who in his sick mind thought he was proving his love for actress Jody Foster by attempting to kill the president of the United States.

While there is endless debate about the Kennedy assassination, Bob Woodward, one of the best investigative reporters in the world , said Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and that none of the conspiracy theories hold up to intellectual scrutiny.

Who do we believe? Woodward or Wilcox who by now is so off the wall that I don’t even think conservatives any longer take him seriously?
