I’ve been doing a little bit of research into Jewish gangster involvement in the 1960s US and found out that Jack Ruby was a fan of JFK because of the president’s attitude to the Jews. The guy who eventually killed Lee Harvey Oswald also knew Sam Giancana, a well-known Mafia kingpin who had invested in Cuba before the revolution.

Why am I doing this–apart from the desire to fuel my interest in assassination-based conspiracy theories? Let’s just say that Jack is going to appear in Alex Cohen book 6, Hollywood Bilker.

PS There’ll be other stuff too.

  1. Very good. It was believed that Ruby was part of the mafia as he owned a club in Texas. He had cancer and not too long to live when he killed Oswald. The news at the time suggested Ruby was selected by mafia just for that reason. No one wanted Oswald to actually speak, least of all the mob. It was a staged hit. Some theories have Johnson as the mastermind, others the Mafia, one suggested Castro even. The Warren Commission was to keep it under wraps. It did. One of the attorneys on the commission was from Long Beach, CA. He never spoke of any facts.
    Not sure if I can remember more from those years but I followed it all for decades. Such an interesting case.

    1. Yeah, there is a really fascinating intersection of mob, CIA, Castro in the situation. Which is mirrored in Bobby Kennedy’s assassination too.

  2. Astonishing that in nearly 60 years nothing’s been leaked. One of the best-kept secrets ever!

    1. Either the best-kept secret or, of course, there’s no secret to keep 🙂 I’m staying out of that debate, for sure…
