Saintly Oswald has, reluctantly, conceded that I am right, that Jack Ruby did not shoot Oswald.
However, the saintly one doesn't go the whole distance with me.
And I have to laugh because he repeatedly refers to me as "Ralph the kook" but he's being such an idiot in broad daylight, that I wonder how anybody could be more of a kook than he.
His position now is that I'm right that the Garage Shooter (referring to the short guy who rushed Oswald) was not Jack Ruby. And he even admits that he may have been the FBI agent (although he stumbled over the name Bookhout). But, he maintains that Opening Act Ruby really was Jack Ruby.
So, he's satisfied that, visually, that's Jack Ruby, that we can see it. But, the image he used to compare was the one from the DPD from Friday afternoon, which wasn't Ruby. And by the way, I found a reference from Elmer Gertz, Ruby's attorney, that Ruby claimed that going to the DPD at 11:15 PM for the Midnight Press Conference was his first visit to the DPD that day. There is no good reason to think that that much balder man was Jack Ruby.
But, even without that, it should obvious that this is not Jack Ruby.
That isn't shadow over his eyes. It's somebody's sorry attempt to depict sunglasses. The Saint knows nothing about physics and optics. If he did, he would know that there is no object that could have cast any such shadow. It's fake. And what about the beveled sideburn? Did the Saint not see it? And what about the impossible distance between the sideburn and the ear? It's not even anatomical. This is very clearly a phony, heavily-altered image.
Alright, so the Saint missed all that, but here's something even worse: IF THAT WAS REALLY JACK RUBY, IT MEANS HE WATCHED THE WHOLE PROCESS OF HIMSELF BEING FRAMED FOR SHOOTING OSWALD, AND THEN, HE JUST WENT ALONG WITH IT.
Who would do that? Why would anyone do that? And how did it come about?
SOME DALLAS DETECTIVE: Listen, Jack, we need to kill Oswald, so if you don't mind, we'd like to frame you for it. So, you show up, and we'll have a lookalike there. He'll do the shooting. Then, we'll get him inside and you inside, and then we'll make the switch where it's you who is under arrest and being charged. What do you say?
JACK RUBY: Well, you know I'm always willing to help the Dallas Police in any way I can. What's the worst that can happen to me?
SOME DALLAS DETECTIVE: Being convicted in court and sentenced to death.
JACK RUBY: I can live with that.
That's what the Saintly one is implying with his ridiculous contention that that was really Jack Ruby there in the opening act.
The reality is that Jack Ruby was there, but it was earlier. It was a totally separate incident, and it was not filmed. And of course, no one was shot. But, Ruby was dragged away and taken up to the 5th floor, and that is where he was when the televised event took place.
And then, immediately afterwards, they brought the real Ruby down from the 5th floor and milled him around, inserting him into the scene like he was just being brought in, but they forgot about his jacket.
If that was Ruby being brought in, he would have had his jacket on. But, he was NOT being brought in. He had been brought DOWN from the 5th floor, where he was already, and they must have left his jacket up there without thinking about it.
Oh Saintly One! You are faintly spun! I am not just partly right. I am completely and totally right, that Jack Ruby did not shoot Oswald, that James Bookhout did, that the real Jack Ruby was NOT in the garage at the time, and that the two Jack Rubys we do see in the garage were both impostors.
You hear me, oh Saintly One? You are a fuckin' moron, oh Saintly One.
