11/21/63 Houston, TX- Secret Service agent Clint Hill laughs with the Kennedys and Connallys as fellow agent Sam Sulliman stands in proper formation on the other side of the limo. Sam joined the other Sam---Kinney---in telling me that JFK NEVER ordered the agents to do anything, let alone ordering the agents off the limo. Agent Stu Stout, who looks an awful lot like Hoover, stand in the middle in the background. I like rare photos; same ole same ole bores me

New Clint Hill book: Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford

New Clint Hill book: Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford by Clint Hill with Lisa McCubbin

 
"Some of his stunning, never-before-revealed anecdotes include: The torture of watching himself in the Zapruder film in Secret Service training"
 
NOT drinking the night before would have prevented the torture. Hill, Landis, Ready, Bennett and 5 other agents drank the night before.
 
This is Hill's FOURTH book (if you count THE KENNEDY DETAIL, which I do- he wrote the Foreword, contributed to the book, did the book tour, the documentary, and many media and in-person events). Cha-ching: Lisa looooooooooooves $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

As agent John Norris explained in Bill Sloan’s book J.F.K.: Breaking the Silence and in an interview for Vincent Michael Palamara’s book Survivor’s Guilt: The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect President Kennedy: “Except for George Hickey and Clint Hill, [many of the others] just basically sat there with their thumbs up their butts while the president was gunned down in front of them.” [although Hill was one of the drinkers who went on to profit from the death of JFK]

Blaine and company: here's a painting of the guy we failed to protect

Blaine and company: here's a painting of the guy we failed to protect

We let JFK get his head blown off, but...here's a painting of what he looked like in life before we let him get killed.

Speechless.

From Facebook:
CAPE COD ARTIST COMMISSIONED BY RETIRED WHITE HOUSE DETAIL AGENTS, GERALD BLAINE AND CLINT HILL
TO CREATE THE OFFICIAL PORTRAIT OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY
Artist Mark Alvin formerly of Hyannis Ma, now residing in Orleans Ma, was commissioned to create this painting of President John F. Kennedy, on behalf of the surviving Kennedy Detail Agents.
...
The painting was presented to the Director of the Secret Service, Joe Clancy, in Washington, DC in time for the retired agent’s reunion and celebration of the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Secret Service, by President Lincoln.

Director Joe Clancy on Clint Hill, etc.

Director Joe Clancy on Clint Hill, etc.

"Clancy pointed to the ambush drill as a reminder of what is at stake for each Secret Service trainee. The exercise takes place in a mock village at the intersection of two roads, 15th street and Clint Hill Way.
Hill, as all Secret Service personnel must know, is the legendary agent who was on the detail assigned to protect President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963. The agent's agony of losing a commander-in-chief to an assassin...'s bullet was immortalized in the Clint Eastwood film based on Hill's life, "In the Line of Fire."  

Clancy said he still speaks to Hill and other former special agents in charge of the Secret Service every year.

"I always think about Clint Hill and all of our people should because you never what's going to happen at any time," Clancy said."

JFK files coming

It was Hunt, shortly before he died in 2007, who claimed that he had been privy to a plot by several CIA affiliates to kill Kennedy — what he referred to as “the Big Event.”
Also under review by the special team of archivists are at least 606 pages about David Atlee Phillips, another CIA officer who won a medal for his role in overthrowing the government of Guatemala in 1954, went on to run operations in Latin America, and along with Hunt played a leading role in anti-Castro activities in Cuba.
Phillips was accused — though never charged — of committing perjury when asked about agency ties to Oswald by the House Select Committee on Assassinations. Phillips, too, late in life attributed the JFK assassination to “rogue” CIA officers.

THE KENNEDY DETAIL movie is DEAD

It is now officially dead. The word I received was the director read my book SURVIVOR'S GUILT: THE SECRET SERVICE AND THE FAILURE TO PROTECT PRESIDENT KENNEDY and could not, in good conscience, proceed with this farce of a movie.

CLINT HILL: absolutely the WRONG guy to mentor these current agents!

CLINT HILL: absolutely the WRONG guy to mentor these current agents!

I must live in a parallel universe; wow. Piers Morgan STILL does not get it-

"If I were Barack Obama, I would get every single one of his Secret Service agents to meet Clint Hill.
Then they might understand exactly what it means to guard the President of the United States. And how it feels when you fail.
Because right now, it seems they’d rather get drunk and cavort with hookers than worry about their President getting shot dead."

 HELLO!! 11/226/3 RING A BELL, PIERS? Hill was... one of the NINE agents who drank the night before and he/they failed to protect the president!

Oh, the irony is rich: Clint Hill tells an autograph seeker (his writing) "Only a covered limo could have protected the President" (JFK)...ya think?!?!?!

More damning evidence against Blaine, Hill, and the Kennedy Detail

More damning evidence against Blaine, Hill, and the Kennedy Detail




http://www.dallasnews.com/entertainment/columnists/alan-peppard/20150210-secret-services-1963-night-in-fort-worths-cellar-recalled.ece
[The Vanity Fair article referenced also included mention of myself, my book, and my work]


T he death Monday of Texas guitarist and songwriter Arvel Stricklin brings up one of the less-explored facets of the John F. Kennedy assassination. Were Secret Service agents impaired the morning after drinking and hanging out at Fort Worth after-hours club the Cellar?
Stricklin would have known. He was playing that night at the Cellar.
As he said in the documentary film, You Must Be Weird, “I know I saw a lot of guys in suits. And the party went on until 6 a.m.”
Agent Clint Hill, the one who leaped on the trunk of the presidential limousine, told the Warren Commission that he stayed at the Cellar until 2:45 a.m. Speaking last year to Vanity Fair, he shaved about an hour off that statement, saying he left before 2 a.m., returned to the Hotel Texas and put in a breakfast order for 6 a.m.
Agent Paul Landis, who, like Hill, rode on the running board of the Secret Service car behind the Kennedys, said he didn’t leave the Cellar until 5 a.m.
One of those present at the club was a Star-Telegram reporter named Bob Schieffer, who went on to anchor the CBS Evening News. In his book, This Just In, Schieffer wrote about his visit to the Cellar in the earliest hours of Nov. 22, 1963: “It seemed a good idea at the time and must have been quite an evening. I remember that we stayed long enough for some of the Easterners to see their first Fort Worth sunrise.”
It was a problem of hunger that led the Secret Service into the Texas night. Arriving in Fort Worth late from Houston, the president and first lady settled into their suite at the Hotel Texas. Of the 28 agents on the presidential detail, nine left the hotel after midnight in search of food.
The Fort Worth Press Club had stayed open late to feed visiting reporters covering the president, but by the time the Secret Service got there well after midnight, the food was gone. They stayed for Scotch and beer.
As Schieffer recently told Vanity Fair, “The Cellar was an all-night, San Francisco-style coffeehouse down the street, and some of the visiting reporters had heard about it and wanted to see it. So we all went over there, and some of the agents came along. The place didn’t have a liquor license, but they did serve liquor to friends — usually grain alcohol and Kool-Aid.”
Six Secret Service agents stayed until around 3 a.m.
Abraham Bolden, a member of Kennedy’s detail, was not with the team in Texas, but in a 2008 book, he wrote about the partying atmosphere among Kennedy’s agents.
Last year, he told Vanity Fair: “The biggest problem I ran into with the Secret Service when I was an agent was their constant drinking. When we would get to a place, one of the first things they would do was stock up with liquor. They would drink and then we would go to work.”
During the assassination in Dallas, Bolden says, “their reflexes were definitely affected by, number one, the loss of sleep and, number two, the fact that [some may have] consumed that amount of alcohol.”
