LBJ Hitman ‘Mac’ Wallace’s Fingerprints Found in Texas Book Depository

In continuation of our series on assassins [see “William Joseph Bryan: Crime Syndicate Patsy, Set-Up Miastro Extraordinaire” and “The Shakespearean Tale of E. Howard Hunt’s JFK Assassination Confession“], The New Nationalist (TNN) now takes a look at Malcolm “Mac” Wallace (1921-1971), President Lyndon B. Johnson’s personal assassin.

Incredibly, it wasn’t until March 12, 1998, that a fingerprint of Wallace’s recorded in 1951 was positively matched with a copy of a fingerprint labeled “unknown” that investigators lifted on Nov. 22, 1963, from a shipping carton located near the southeast side of the sixth-floor window of the Texas School Book Depository building. The carton, labeled “Box A,” also contained several fingerprints identified as those of Lee Harvey Oswald.

The identification was made by A. Nathan Darby, a certified latent print examiner with several decades of experience. Darby is a member of the International Association of Identifiers and was chosen to help design the Eastman Kodak Miracode System of transmitting fingerprints between law enforcement agencies. Darby signed a sworn, notarized affidavit stating that he was able to affirm a 14-point match between the “Unknown” fingerprint and the “blind” print card submitted to him, which was the 1951 print of Wallace’s. U.S. law requires a 12-point match for legal identification, and Darby’s match is more conclusive than the legal minimum.

This Wallace fingerprint was forwarded to the FBI. The agency then declared it a non-match. Darby addressed this travesty in the video segment below.

TNN Takeaway: Wallace may have been on the sixth floor of the Book Depository to set up the sniper’s nest framing of Oswald, not take shots, which was left to others operating in different locations, like the grassy knoll and Dal-Tex Building [see “John F. Kennedy’s Prescient Belief in Conspiracies and His Own Demise“].

Newly released JFK files now reveal that Oswald’s fingerprints that were said to be on his assassin’s rifle have since allegedly been “lost.”

A String of Murders Dating Back to 1951

Wallace was convicted for the murder of John Kinser in 1951. Through the influence of LBJ, he got off on a suspended five-year sentence. It was rumored that LBJ’s sister Josefa Johnson had affairs with both Kinser and Wallace. Kinser asked Josefa if she could arrange for her brother to loan him some money. Johnson interpreted this as a blackmail threat (Josefa had told Kinser about some of her brother’s corrupt activities).

According to Bill Adler of The Texas Observer, several of the jurors telephoned Kinser’s parents to apologize for agreeing to a “suspended sentence but said they did so only because threats had been made against their families.” The Austin Statesman wrote that the case was “marked from the start to finish by the unusual” and had left the people of Austin shocked and “quizzical.”

Josefa was always problematic for LBJ. On Christmas morning in 1961, at the age of 49, she was found dead in her bed at her home at 3:15 a.m. The cause of death was stated to be a brain hemorrhage. Josefa had returned home at 11:45 p.m. from a Christmas Eve party at LBJ’s ranch. There was no autopsy and no inquest. The death certificate was executed by a doctor who was not present to examine the deceased. Josefa was embalmed that same day and buried the following, on Dec. 26.

According to Clint Peoples, a Texas Ranger based in Austin, Billie Sol Estes had promised to tell the full story of the death of Henry Marshall when he obtained his freedom from prison.

Allotments were issued telling the cotton farmers how much they could or could not plant. In 1958, Estes cut a deal with LBJ. Over the next couple of years, Estes ran a vast scam using federal agricultural subsidies. According to Estes, he obtained $21 million a year for “growing” and “storing” non-existent crops of cotton.

In 1960, Marshall, who was an agent of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, was asked to investigate the Estes’ activities. Marshall discovered that over a two-year period, Estes had purchased 3,200 acres of cotton allotments from 116 different farmers. LBJ was cut in on a take of the corruption. At one point, Estes was worth $400 million — in 1960s dollars.

True to his word, Estes testified that he, LBJ, LBJ’s aide Cliff Carter and Wallace met several times to discuss the issue of the “loose cannon,” Henry Marshall. Marshall had refused a LBJ-arranged promotion to Washington, D.C. headquarters, and they feared he was about to report them.

LBJ, according to Estes, on Jan. 17, 1961, finally said, “Get rid of him,” and Wallace was given the assignment. According to testimony, Wallace followed Marshall to a remote area of his farm and beat him nearly unconscious. Then, while trying to asphyxiate him with exhaust from Marshall’s pickup truck, Wallace thought he heard someone approaching the scene and hastily grabbed a rifle. Wallace pumped five shots into Marshall’s body and fled the scene.

The murder was ruled a suicide. No pictures were taken of the crime scene, no blood samples were taken of the stains on the truck — which was washed and waxed the following day — and no fingerprints were taken from the rifle or the pickup [source: Glen Sample and Mark Collum, “The Men On The Sixth Floor,” 1995].

David Hanners, of the Dallas Morning News reported on April, 4, 1984, that in his appearance before the grand jury, Estes testified that Robert Kennedy may have offered Marshall protection, if he would testify against LBJ, sources said.

By 1963, Bobby Kennedy called five of Washington’s top reporters into his office and told them it was now open season on LBJ. It’s okay, he told them, to go after the story they were ignoring out of deference to the administration. In the Senate, the investigation into the Bobby Baker case was moving quickly ahead. Even the Democrats were cooperating, thanks to the Kennedys, and an awful lot of really bad stuff was being revealed — until Nov. 22, 1963.

JFK’s secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, wrote that the day President Kennedy left for Dallas, they discussed the Bobby Baker scandal, LBJ’s deep involvement in it and the scandal’s potential affect on JFK’s campaign for a second term.

Kennedy told her, “I will need a running mate in ’64, a man who believes as I do.”

Lincoln wrote, “President Kennedy had talked and I had just listened, but I did venture one question. Now, I asked, ‘Who is your choice as a running mate?’ He looked straight ahead, and without hesitating, he replied, ‘At this time, I am thinking about Gov. Terry Sanford of North Carolina. BUT IT WILL NOT BE LYNDON.’”

Bobby Kennedy was later photographed and quoted as saying to a shocked-looking LBJ, “Why did you have my brother killed?”

I think he knew the answer.

As it turned out, on Aug. 9, 1984, Estes’ lawyer, Douglas Caddy, wrote to Stephen S. Trott at the U.S. Department of Justice. Caddy’s letter to Trott said, “Mr. Estes is willing to testify that LBJ ordered these killings, and that he transmitted his orders through Cliff Carter to Mac Wallace, who executed the murders.”

The letter continued:

Mr. Estes was a member of a four-member group, headed by Lyndon Johnson, which committed criminal acts in Texas in the 1960’s. The other two, besides Mr. Estes and LBJ, were Cliff Carter and Mac Wallace. Mr. Estes is willing to disclose his knowledge concerning the following criminal offenses:

1. The killing of Henry Marshall

2. The killing of George Krutilek

3. The killing of Ike Rogers and his secretary

4. The killing of Harold Orr

5. The killing of Coleman Wade

6. The killing of Josefa Johnson

7. The killing of John Kinser

8. The killing of President J. F. Kennedy.

Mr. Estes is willing to testify that LBJ ordered these killings, and that he transmitted his orders through Cliff Carter to Mac Wallace, who executed the murders. In the cases of murders nos. 1-7, Mr. Estes’ knowledge of the precise details concerning the way the murders were executed stems from conversations he had shortly after each event with Cliff Carter and Mac Wallace.

In addition, a short time after Mr. Estes was released from prison in 1971, he met with Cliff Carter and they reminisced about what had occurred in the past, including the murders. During their conversation, Carter orally compiled a list of 17 murders which had been committed, some of which Mr. Estes was unfamiliar. A living witness was present at that meeting and should be willing to testify about it. He is Kyle Brown, recently of Houston and now living in Brady, Texas.

Mr. Estes, states that Mac Wallace, whom he describes as a “stone killer” with a communist background, recruited Jack Ruby, who in turn recruited Lee Harvey Oswald.

Mr. Estes says that the Mafia did not participate in the Kennedy assassination, but that its participation was discussed prior to the event but rejected by LBJ, who believed if the Mafia were involved, he would never be out from under its blackmail.

TNN Note: E. Howard Hunt stated that CIA operatives were utilized as well. Hunt also said that domestic Mafia was not a preferred method for domestic political assassinations.

Wallace’s favored method as a hit man was carbon monoxide poisoning.

On the night of April 4, 1962, at the western-end of Texas, a ranchman came upon the body of George Krutilek slumped in his car with a hose from his exhaust stuck in the window. Krutilek was a 49-year-old certified public accountant who had undergone secret grilling by FBI agents on April 2, the day after Billie Sol Estes’ arrest. Krutilek had worked for Estes and had been the recipient of his favors, but he was never seen or heard of again after the FBI grilling until his badly decomposed body was found. [Source: J. Evetts Haley, “A Texan Looks at Lyndon,” 1964]

In addition, other key witnesses in Estes’ cases — including Harold Orr and Howard Pratt — all died of carbon monoxide poisoning from car engines. Wallace himself was killed in a suspicious automobile accident in 1971. LBJ died in 1973.

Later, on June 19, 1992, U.S. Marshall Clint Peoples told a friend that he had documented evidence that Wallace was one of the shooters in Dealey Plaza. This would have been Estes’ sealed testimony given before a Robertson County grand jury in 1984. On June 23, Peoples, a former Texas Ranger, was killed in a mysterious one-car automobile accident in Texas.

Barr McClellan, was a full partner at the Austin, Texas, legal firm Clark, Thomas & Winters, which represented the interests of LBJ. McClellan is the father of former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan and U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Mark McClellan. In 2003, McClellan published “Blood Money and Power: How L.B.J. Killed JFK.” In the book, he argues that LBK and Edward Clark were involved in the planning and cover up of the assassination of JFK. McClellan also named Wallace as one of the assassins.

Barr was smeared and his book trashed by the mockingbird media, although a copy of a documentary on LBJ’s role can be found online and is linked below. This would never be shown today, and I’m very surprised it’s still up on YouTube.

Of course, Wallace’s hit list doesn’t include the unusual deaths of scores of JFK assassination eyewitnesses or those involved in the murdering the president. Richard Belzer in “Hit List” identifies 18 material witnesses who died within three years of Dealey Plaza. An actuary engaged by the London Times calculated the likelihood of 18 witnesses of their ages dying of any cause within three years of JFK’s assassination as 1 in 100,000 trillion.

EXCLUSIVE: YouTube Secretly Using SPLC To Police Videos

By Peter Hasson | 27 February 2018

  • YouTube is getting help from the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center in its effort to identify extremist content.
  • YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” police the platform for so-called hate speech to terror-related content.
  • The SPLC has labeled pedestrian conservative groups as hate groups in the past.

THE DAILY CALLER — The Southern Poverty Law Center is assisting YouTube in policing content on their platform, The Daily Caller has learned.

The left-wing nonprofit — which has more recently come under fire for labeling legitimate conservative organizations as “hate groups” — is one of the more than 100 nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and government agencies in YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” program, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told TheDC.

The SPLC and other program members help police YouTube for extremist content, ranging from so-called hate speech to terrorist recruiting videos.

All of the groups in the program have confidentiality agreements, a spokesperson for Google, YouTube’s parent company, previously told TheDC. A handful of YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers,” including the Anti-Defamation League and No Hate Speech — a European organization focused on combating intolerance — have gone public with their participation in the program. The vast majority of the groups in the program have remained hidden behind their confidentiality agreements. […]

Syria War Photos Go Viral, Except They Are NOT From Syria

By Kritika Goel | 27 February 2018

THE QUINT — Two powerful images of wartorn Syria have come to light, which define the horror of civil war that has destroyed the country. But as it turns out, the images that are being passed off as pictures from war-ravaged Syria are not actually from Syria.

Over the past week, Syria’s army and its allies have subjected the rebel-held enclave of eastern Ghouta near Damascus to one of the heaviest bombardments of the seven-year war, killing 541 people in airstrikes.

Hundreds of images have flooded social media, drawing the world’s attention to what’s going on, of which these went viral on 25 February. […]

The Shakespearean Tale of E. Howard Hunt’s JFK Assassination Confession

Near the end of his life, E. Howard Hunt (1918 – 2007) toyed with and ultimately put forth statements fingering key culprits in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The entire Hunt confession process also vividly illustrates the difficulties faced by those on the side of truth and justice in today’s inverted world.

The New Nationalist (TNN) holds that the hero in this case was Hunt’s son, St. John, who tried courageously to get the truth told. He had to deal with a delicate family situation, as his father had formed a second family with individuals who were naive or in cognitive dissonance about CIA black operations and who E. Howard Hunt really was. Accordingly, E. Howard had lied to his second wife about his real history. This created real difficulties and friction for all his family members and ultimately a feud and division.

Consequently, E. Howard’s JFK revelations were strongly opposed by Hunt’s new family and his second wife, Laura. Both E. Howard and St. John described Laura as the archetypal normie and “very naive about the darker side of politics.” Later, when the truth came out, Laura (and others) tried to debunk his claims and asserted that tough ol’ CIA op E. Howard had been manipulated by his two sons. Accusations were made that the confession was falsified. Then, when the confession video turned up, she said that Hunt “was no longer lucid” (aka the gaslighting method). St. John was also subjected to smears, argumentum ad hominems, and a legal campaign from an attorney that St. John defined as a “handler.” The mockingbird media largely ignored the story.

Also complicating the situation was that E. Howard was motivated by money and was requiring upfront payments. The reasoning for this was because of the expenses of his illness and the fact that his career ended prematurely due to his involvement in Watergate. As he was nearing death, he wanted to provide for his wife. Actor Kevin Costner, who played James Garrison in Oliver Stone’s film “JFK,” walked away from a collaboration because of this.

This left E. Howard torn between revealing the truth and being troubled by what the fallout would bring to his second family and himself. The whole affair is an affirmation for those who say, “If there was an assassination conspiracy, someone would eventually talk.” Well, as you will soon see, somebody did talk.

TNN Takeaway on St. John Hunt: Par for the course, you can easily find Lugenpresse smears online. But no person would wish this situation or attention on himself — and that includes St. John. We see no reason not to consider him a credible witness or to impune his motives, even if his father might be less plausible. In fact, St. John tried to take the high road and should be considered a pathway witness of considerable importance.

After E. Howard died, St. John provided the evidence to Rolling Stone magazine. In its April 5, 2007, issue, a bedridden and elderly E. Howard detailed his insights into the JFK conspiracy. A number of individuals Hunt implicated include Lyndon B. JohnsonCord MeyerDavid PhillipsFrank SturgisDavid MoralesAntonio VecianaWilliam Harvey and an assassin he dubbed the “French grassy knoll gunman,” who many presume was Lucien Sarti.

In the Nixon presidential tape transcripts of June 23, 1972, Nixon said, “Hunt will uncover a lot of things. You open that scab, there’s a hell of a lot of things …This involves those Cubans, Hunt, and a lot of hanky panky that we have nothing to do with ourselves … this will open up that whole Bay of Pigs thing … it’s going to make the CIA look bad, it’s going to make Hunt look bad and is likely to blow the whole Bay of Pigs thing …”

H.R. Haldeman wrote in his memoir, “The Ends of Power,” that when Nixon referred to “the Bay of Pigs thing,” he was in reality referring to the Kennedy assassination. Hunt’s CIA file is sealed to this day.

One of St. John’s books describing his relationship and experience with his father is here. TNN will highlight key takeaways.

On page 51, St. John reveals the heart of what his father tells him:

In 1963, my father and Frank Sturgis met with David Morales, a contract killer for the CIA at a safe house in Miami. Morales explained that he had been picked by Bill Harvey, a rogue and unstable CIA agent with a long history of black ops, for a secret “off the board” assignment. It was Morales’ understanding that this project was coming down through a chain of command, which started with LBJ, then the vice president.

Harvey told Morales that he’d been brought in by Cord Myer, a CIA agent with international connections, who in turn was working with David Atlee Phillips and Antonio Veciana. Phillips was CIA station chief in Mexico City and deeply involved in the dangerous world of the Cuban underground. Veciana was the Cuban founder of the violent anti-Castro Alpha 66 group that was bent on overthrowing Castro by any means necessary.

All of these men shared common ground: a hatred for Kennedy, who they felt was dangerous for this country’s political future and had abandoned them in their time of need. Cord Myer had his own reason to hate Kennedy: His wife, Mary, was one of Kennedy’s many mistresses. The gossip surrounding them infuriated Cord, who swore revenge.

Hunt suspected that Oswald had in fact fired on the president that day, but there was also another man: French assassin Lucien Sarti, who fired from the famous grassy knoll.

St. John believes one of the “three tramps” at Dealey Plaza was his father- see photo at right.

TNN Takeaway: We covered the ins and outs of characters like David Atlee Phillips and Cord Meyer (correct spelling, St. John uses “Cord Myer”) as members of the Georgetown Clique or Cesspool in our article on that subject. We suggest that this article provides key background about the conspiracy. Cord Meyer’s ex-wife, Mary, was subjected to a 1964 hit for possibly exposing incriminating details. The information that E. Howard revealed is not entirely inclusive, but is compartmentalized, with the actors on a need-to-know basis. Therefore, his story about Oswald firing may not be within his wheelhouse of first-hand knowledge. However, most of the names mentioned are consistent with various JFK conspiracy theories developed over 55 years.

St. John describes how the confession process began. From 2002 to 2003, E. Howard is described as being in and out of the hospital due to health complications, such as pneumonia, a high fever and ultimately a leg amputation. In August 2003, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. At about this time, E. Howard hints that his wife and St. John’s mother, Dorothy, was assassinated via a commercial air crash in 1972 over matters related to Watergate and a payoff from Nixon for silence. [St. John’s book concerning his mom’s role.]

On page 40, St. John reveals that his father’s alibi of being at home Nov. 22, 1963, with his family was a lie.

On page 38, he states that his mother, Dorothy, shortly before Kennedy was assassinated, indicated his father was in Dallas.

St. John states that his father elected to have some sort of plastic surgery done to reduce the size and change the shape of his ears before the JFK “big event.”

On page 48, St. John summarizes his pre-confession observation about his dad.

I knew a few facts; that my father had been accused and questioned about the JFK murder; he had denied under oath any knowledge; he had lost a court case in which he was unable to satisfactorily prove that he wasn’t in Dallas on Nov. 22. A witness had testified that she had seen him in Dallas handing out envelopes of cash to Frank Sturgis; and that whether my father admitted it or not he was a key figure in just about every sinister covert operation from Guatemala, the Bay of Pigs, the assassination attempts on Castro, to Watergate. I also knew that my father had made a career using disinformation, plausible deniability and dirty tricks. He had well-known links to the Cuban underground and shared their deep hatred for Kennedy. How could he not have inside information on the assassination of JFK?

Frank Sturgis- one of “tramps” with Hunt.

On page 49, St. John freely states that he pressed his father to reveal the truth about the JFK “big event.” E. Howard replied, “Saint, this is something that I’m not averse to; however, you need to understand that my time and cooperation is directly proportional to the financial prospects.”

Arrival of the Tape

In January 2004, St. John received a teaser tape in the mail from his father.

“LBJ had designated Cord Myer to undertake a larger organization while keeping it totally secret. LBJ settled on Myer as an opportunist like himself, a man who had very little left to him in life … ever since JFK had taken Cord’s wife as his mistress.” He spoke about Sturgis and Morales and the ‘Big Event.’ At the end of it, he said, “Let me point out that if I had wanted to fictionalize what went on in Miami and elsewhere during the run up for the ‘Big Event,’ I would have done so, but I don’t want any unreality to tinge the information … that I’ve provided to you and you alone … what’s important is that we’ve back tracked a chain of command up through Cord Myer and laying the doings at the doorstep of LBJ … I’ll be perfectly willing to expand on some of these matters in the future … I’ll only do so if there is adequate monetary motivation. Please understand that.”

St. John took his father’s tapes and handwritten material to a meeting with “60 Minutes.” Soon afterward, the investigation was nixed by “higher-ups” at CBS. Ultimately, it was discussed and shown on “Coast to Coast and Alex Jones” (since scrubbed). To our eye, E. Howard  looks and sounds quite lucid in these tapes. It is a testimonial to the corrupt nature of the system that these are not widely known.

St. John and Howard Hunt also arranged for nine hours of taped interviews with a leading JFK expert Eric Hamburg. Family relations were strained, as St. John states that the second Hunt family would show up to watch, while pressure was openly applied behind the scenes. This is a prima facie example of why full revelations of truths are so hard to come by. Ultimately, the book “Final Secrets” was scuttled. E. Howard backed down, Hamburg quit the project and a weaker version — a book called “American Spy” — was published and then trashed by the mockingbird media. The more open confessions that E. Howard made earlier were not forthcoming, and he died on Jan. 23, 2007.

Use of the Code Word ‘Big Event’ Elsewhere

E. Howard was not alone in using the term “Big Event.”

Gerry P. Hemming in 1994: “The FBI came by my place after the assassination and asked nine questions in a hurry, and got the #### out of there. They asked: ‘What did you have for breakfast? What did you have for lunch?’ They didn’t ask where I was when the ‘BIG EVENT’ happened.” Note that this document has been scrubbed from the Internet and memory holed.

Marita Lorenz in 2002: “Lorenz tells a story of a carload of CIA agents, including Frank Sturgis and Lee Harvey Oswald, carrying high powered rifles and sub-machine guns, coming to Dallas just before Kennedy’s visit. She claims that Sturgis, later arrested in the Watergate scandal, told her openly that a ‘BIG EVENT’ was going to happen and the Agency was behind it.” [source]

Judyth Vary Baker in 2003: She says that Lee Harvey Oswald called the coup the “big event.” [“The Men Who Killed Kennedy,” Episode 8: The Love Affair at approx. min. 37:30]

TNN Takeaway: The confessions of E. Howard Hunt is further confirmation of the likelihood that Lyndon Johnson was the central figure in a coup against JFK.

South Africa to Cut Diplomatic Ties with Israel

South Africa has been a staunch ally of the Palestinian struggle and regularly spoken out against the atrocities committed by the Israeli government

20 February 2018

MIDDLE EAST MONITOR — The South African government is intending to cut diplomatic ties with Israel in protest of its treatment of the Palestinian people, the country’s Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor announced yesterday.

Pandor informed parliamentarians of the government’s resolution during a ten-hour joint debate on South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) that he delivered last week.

“The majority party has agreed, that government must cut diplomatic ties with Israel, given the absence of genuine initiatives by Israel to secure lasting peace and a viable two-state solution that includes full freedom and democracy for the Palestinian people,” she said.

The comments were made in response to opposition leader Kenneth Meshoe, who had argued that it was disappointing that national and provincial authorities in South Africa had refused help from Israeli companies to address the country’s current water crisis.

However, the proposal was applauded by parliamentarians and Pandor, who is expected to be appointed vice president in Ramaphosa’s new Cabinet, was given a standing ovation as she left the podium. […]
