Story One: RT heralds RFK, Jr. for (again) plainly stating the CIA murdered his uncle (and probably his father).

The CIA was behind the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1963 and likely involved in the murder of US Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. alleged during an interview with WABC radio host John Catsimatidis on Sunday.

“There is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in [JFK’s] murder,” Kennedy declared, describing it as “beyond a reasonable doubt at this point.”

The story ends with a rehashing of the 1967 CIA CYA memo on “conspiracy theories”, literally the deflective genesis of that idiotic phrase. You may remember that same memo, here, some time ago. (Here now, or RT later). Rt didn’t cover it (though I have), but the 1962 CIA-DOD memo on Operation Northwoods (9/11 -39 years), and JFK’s wise, angry rejection of the same that was one of four likely reasons why they murdered America’s last president who really thought he was the chief executive and acted like it. Not to worry, I’m sure the CIA is A-OK now…

Hand on to your tin foil! RT ain’t done. NASA’s manned Moon landing was just as real as Star Trek!

The former head of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency, Dmitry Rogozin, has expressed doubt that the US Apollo 11 mission really landed on the Moon in 1969, saying he has yet to see conclusive proof.

1… 2… 3… CoNSpRaCy tHeOry!!! Seriously, NASA still has the telemetry tapes… No, no, they “lost” those. The Moon rocks! Those are totally … fake, an unexplained chemical composition impossibility. Stanley Kubrick was onse … no, that doesn’t help. Hey! the set was so real, they used it in a Bond mov… Darn! There’s um, the er … those guys who told the other guys they went.

Ok, for those upset about the foregoing, keep the dreams alive! To help, here’s Gamazda with “Don’t Stop Believing”:

Oops, sorry. She’s Russian too (but do back up and watch her adorable English promo). Hang on… Here’s the same tune as accompanied by 65,000 MSU fans:

Hail State!

Heck, let’s shift gears completely and keep that last theme going a minute longer. A couple of years ago in St. Louis, they started doing the coolest thing:

Blues, just a suggestion, but how about retiring and raising a “Branigan 52” jersey?
