Who Killed Kennedy?
And Who Killed Kennedy’s Killer’s Look-Alike?
Can you pick Oswald out of this line-up?
Can you pick François Mario Bachand out of this lineup?
Fidel Castro & the assassination
of John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Fidel Castro founded the Quebec terrorist movement, the FLQ, which he began to set up with Belgian immigrant to Montreal (and possibly KGB agent) Georges Schoeters, during a meeting between them in Montreal in early 1959. FLQ is short for Front de Libération du Québec (Quebec Liberation Front).
Castro’s 1959 visit to Montreal was organized by a Quebec criminal lawyer, Robert Daoust, whose primary client is later known to be the Cotroni mob. Whether Daoust worked for Cotroni at the time he brought in Castro is unconfirmed. However, it would be interesting to know, since the Cotronis had a special interest in the Liberal Party of Canada. And it was the Liberals under Soviet agent Pearson, who used the existence of the FLQ and its 1960s bombing spree as a pretext in 1967 to order the set-up of the Parti Québécois (PQ). These referendums benefit the Communist-controlled federal level of Canada, which can then appear to “save” Canada from Quebec “separatism” by negotiating the restructuring of all of Canada for Communism.
An American woman (Andrea Silverthorne) has a theory that an Oswald look-alike shot Kennedy because Oswald was not a marksman. This is her solution to the “French connection” alleged in the Kennedy assassination. Silverthorne suggests that Oswald double, François Mario Bachand, was a marksman. He moreover hung out with actual FLQ terrorists, Silverthorne observes, which made him seem to be one of them … and might have been a cover for him.
Bachand was bailed out of jail by a newspaper reporter a couple of weeks before President John F. Kennedy was shot. On release from jail, the Oswald look-alike promptly went underground.
Silverthorne identifies the French Canadian François Mario Bachand as possibly having shown up on-site in Texas for the shooting (grassy knoll), accompanied by his wife and small child.
Years later, in 1971, Bachand himself was assassinated execution-style, in Paris. The execution occurred shortly after Soviet agent, Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, ordered it; which is a criminal act: government is not entitled to murder a citizen in cold blood. (Tell it to Barack Hussein Obama, who assumes a “presidential power” to exterminate American citizens, and other innocent bystanders).
Trudeau, who led a Communist delegation at Moscow in 1952 on Communist nickel 1, was a Communist like his predecessor, Soviet Agent Lester “Mike” Pearson. Pearson had been exposed by former GRU (Soviet military intelligence), Elizabeth Bentley, in the U.S. McCarran hearings. Despite written warnings from the FBI to the RCMP, Pearson steadily rose through the ranks.
Interest in the killing of Bachand deepens when we learn that the deed was “recommended” to Communist Trudeau by his fellow-Communist Jean-Pierre Goyer. Said Alan Stang in 1971:
Pierre Elliott Trudeau made Jean-Pierre Goyer Solicitor-General for Canada …
“when Parliament was not in session and could not question him. … Goyer … has been involved in several pro-Communist fronts. And he has attended Communist meetings behind the Iron Curtain. Like his friend Trudeau, he is a revolutionary.”
It was alleged that Trudeau himself was to be a target of assassination on Bachand’s imminent return to Quebec. Thus, the notion of a capability or intent for assassination was clearly associated with this Oswald look-alike.
In his chapter on “The Assassination of François Mario Bachand”, labor journalist Louis Fournier, in his F.L.Q. Histoire d’un mouvement clandestin (1982) UQAM Editions Quebec/Amerique, 1982, 509 pp. (first published in French in 1982) states that:
[Translation:] “[w]ithin the F.L.Q., the major Spring event is the assassination in Paris, on March 29th , of François Mario  Bachand, one of the leaders-in-exile of the movement. Bachand, aged 27, is found dead in his flat in Saint-Ouen in a working-class suburb of Paris, felled by two bullets from a 22-caliber revolver shot into the back of the neck at close range. The matter has never been officially clarified. Mario Bachand, who lived in semi-clandestinity, was getting ready to return to Quebec; he had taken steps in that direction with Maître Bernard Mergler. He wanted to regularize his situation after having fled to Cuba in April 1969, while he was out on bail on altogether minor charges connected to “Operation McGill français” (the other accused had been cleared). Still a partisan of the F.L.Q., he was nonetheless in disagreement with some of his comrades, due notably to his tactical support for the P.Q.
In a secret text written shortly before his death, Bachand would advocate that Québécois militants “move to total clandestinity” because the repression had become too strong. “What is needed,” he said, “is to form selected armed groups, which will attack certain objectives at very precise moments. In addition, it is necessary that a certain form of urban guerilla be maintained, for example bombs in anglophone neighborhoods, hold-ups, well timed executions of certain politically dangerous persons such as Jean Drapeau and Pierre Trudeau“, because the execution of Pierre Laporte constituted a “positive” gesture.
Trudeau’s execution order allegedly arose from concern that Bachand might be able to achieve his aim. However, there is another reason clear from the same extract from Fournier why Trudeau would not have wanted Bachand to return to Quebec. The “secret committee at Power” had ordered the set-up of the Parti Québécois to run referendums in Quebec as the “democratic” alternative to FLQ violence. With the PQ holding seven seats in the Quebec Legislature in 1970, and hopes on the rise for an early referendum, the last thing Trudeau and his Reds now want is the return to Canada of Bachand. This highly competent friend of the FLQ and organizer of leftist riots, including the perceived Communist Front of “Opération McGill français” in 1969, might have stirred up violence; and made the PQ’s “democratic option” defunct before it became fully operational.
Trudeau’s execution order targeting Bachand may have had more to do with keeping the PQ in power to facilitate his own planned negotiations with his Communist friend, Lévesque to restructure Canada. This obviously was the aim at that time, and still is: there is no other purpose to the Communist PQ. Had Bachand stirred up social unrest and violence, the PQ would have come to an untimely end as a credible “political” alternative to the FLQ approach for taking Quebec out of Canada.
Thus, Bachand’s alleged intent to assassinate Trudeau might well have been a facade for the real objective: protecting the Communist and terrorist-filled ranks of the Liberals’ “political solution,” the PQ, from disintegration.
Bachand: the Kennedy “French Connection”?
Silverthorne has written up her theory that Bachand was the famed “French connection”, with astonishing pictures of BACHAND and OSWALD (above) at her web site, named for President John F. Kennedy’s proposed site of America’s first tidal power dam for cheap and plentiful energy: the Passamaquoddy. Her story is here:
Adding my own speculation to the Silverthorne scenario: if Fidel Castro ordered the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, he may have used François Mario Bachand — masked as an “FLQ” terrorist — to do (some of) the shooting, and Castro’s lifelong best friend Trudeau may have then closed the JFK file by having Bachand executed.
Bachand’s name comes up on the FLQ timeline at Wikipedia, which places Bachand in Cuba on several occasions in the years after the Kennedy shooting:
This item on the Timeline is intriguing:
March 24, Solicitor General Jean-Pierre Goyer, Director General of the RCMP Security Service John Starnes and Deputy Solicitor General Ernest Côté meet. Goyer orders Starnes to “neutralize” Mario Bachand [murder, assassinate, kill a Canadian citizen extra-judicially], in Paris, an operation that had been planned since February. A heated exchange ensues; “Starnes objected that it would be pointless and hazardous and that the service was incapable of it.” Goyer says he would consult with the Prime Minister.
Footnote 22 cites a credible source: McLoughlin, Michael. “Last Stop, Paris: the assassination of Mario Bachand and the death of the FLQ” (Viking, Toronto: 1998), p. 218.
Note the latter half of that title, “the death of the FLQ”. As I theorize above, organizer Bachand may have been ordered killed to keep the PQ in power, by obstructing the return of the FLQ.
Indeed, journalist Louis Fournier notes:
[Translation:] “[…] the death of François Mario Bachand coincided with an unprecedented offensive of the information and security services against any attempt to relaunch the F.L.Q.“
Fournier also declares:
[Translation:] Two major theories may explain the death of Francois Bachand: either he was “executed” by a commando of former comrades in disagreement with him, as a settling of accounts which would be absolutely unique in the whole history of the F.L.Q.; or he was taken down in a special operation of the police security and information service.
That latter operation would have been run by Trudeau-appointee and fellow Iron-Curtainer, Jean-Pierre Goyer. 2
The identity of Bachand’s executioners is unknown, although Fournier gives this account of the possible penetration of Bachand’s residence by camouflaged security agents:
[Translation:] In Paris, Bachand was living with a young arts Professor from Occitan University, Pierre Barral,  who had links with the “Mouvement pour la défense des prisonniers politiques québécois” [“Movement for the defence of the Québécois political prisoners”, meaning the F.L.Q. terrorists:KM]. Very few people are aware of his refuge at Saint-Ouen, other than a few contacts he believed he could trust such as François Dorlot, a militant of the P.Q. close to the F.L.Q. at the start of the 1960s. Bachand was aware, however, for some time, that he was being followed; he had told his sister Michèle, a member of the executive of the M.D.P.P.Q. that he believed so, and his friend Clermont Bergeron of the C.S.N. who had come from Montreal to see him a few days before his death.
[Translation:] According to the testimony of Professor Barral, when Bachand was away from the flat, the night before his assassination, two young people called on him, one of whom seemed to be disguised as a female transvestite. They said they had fled Quebec and that they needed help. They told Barral: “François doesn’t know us personally, but we know him.”
However, what is truly remarkable about Bachand’s execution whether it was carried out by Trudeau and the RCMP or not (and it was murder of a Canadian, if it was) is that it was “ordered” by an elite Communist, Jean-Pierre Goyer. Goyer’s appointment by Communist Trudeau as head of Canada’s national police is discussed by American anti-Communist Alan Stang in an extract of his 1971 article at my blog:
“Another thing you need if you are imposing a dictatorship is control of the police. In Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are controlled by the Solicitor-General. So Trudeau made Jean-Pierre Goyer the Solicitor-General — when Parliament was not in session and could not question him. Goyer, it goes without saying, was a regular contributor to Cité Libre. Isn’t everybody? He was once arrested for staging a sit-in outside the office of the Premier of Quebec. He has been involved in several pro-Communist fronts. And he has attended Communist meetings behind the Iron Curtain. Like his friend Trudeau, he is a revolutionary.
This is the man now running the national police of Canada.”
So, the man “running the national police of Canada” ordered the execution of an Oswald look-alike (Bachand) who frequented the Castro-founded FLQ & was bailed out (in sufficient time to be able to shoot JFK, if that was his mission); and Goyer did so in final consultation with Castro’s best friend, Pilgrim of Moscow Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
Jean-François Lisée (the current Communist leader of the Communist Parti Québécois, elected on 7 October 2016), confirms in his 1990 book, Dans l’Oeil de l’Aigle that Bachand was intimate with Cuba prior to 1970 for at least a year and a half:
[Translation:] Three Felquists in a hurry to know all about guerilla techniques (François Bachand, Raymond Villeneuve and Gaston Collin) had already spent some 18 months in Cuba prior to 1970. There again, Langley had presented to the Secret Service representatives a defector who had told somewhat alarming stories about the training the Cubans were giving to the Quebecers. The CIA believed the testimony was reliable, but in Ottawa, the Mounties had their doubts. “We know from people who had seen them, that the Felquists in Cuba had no training, they were playing billiards in the hotel,” said one Canadian officer.”*
I, for one, doubt the “doubts” of the Mounties, which do not seem rational in the circumstances. François Mario Bachand and other terrorist leaders did not go to Cuba to play pool in the hotel lounge.
The assassination of Cuba-trained Bachand in effect protected the Communist subversion of Quebec, and Canada, and of North America, as currently then organized in the hands of the corporate fascists behind the secret committee at Power Corporation. This cabal, with links to the Red-friendly Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) which co-financed the 1917 Bolshevik “revolution”, had orchestrated the set-up of the Communist Parti Québécois. Power Corporation then had financed Communist Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s federal election campaign. It was clearly intended that Trudeau “negotiate” with “his own” Communist PQ to restructure Canada for Communism.
It is therefore my view that François Mario Bachand may well have been a marksman; he may have been recruited by Cuba locally; and he may well have been in Texas on the infamous day. Bachand most surely would have upset the “bourgeois” Communist apple cart of Power Corporation’s designer “political” party, the Parti Québécois, Power’s ultimate vehicle for dismantling and restructuring all of North America for corporate-fascist world government.
1 Just how “Red” was Pierre Elliott Trudeau? Read my exclusive English translation of Trudeau’s 7-part series for Le Devoir on the 1952 Moscow “economic” summit organized by V.V. Kuznetsov of Soviet Intelligence: “I’m Back From Moscow“.
2 Killing a Canadian citizen outside the law is hardly an “operation”. It is cold-blooded murder, for which those who discussed and planned it are culpable, whether they carried it out, or not. Goyer, Trudeau, and Starnes all should have been charged and tried at least for intent.
