|JFK and Mary Pinchot Meyer|
Did John Kennedy use LSD during his short time in the White House? Was his source for the acid his lover and confidant Mary Pinchot Meyer who was a protege of Timothy Leary?
Could his hallucinogenic experiences have triggered a paradigm shift in his thinking where he moved towards ending the Cold War, bringing all military back from Vietnam and working towards world peace and equality, which would have solidified his legacy?
Can LSD actually be that transforming? Make one realize that problems can't be solved on the same level they exist and our thinking must move to another higher level? Remember that JFK was not really known as a passivist during his WWII 'adventures' and political career.
Keep in mind that during this period, LSD was legal. It was most likely Sandoz pure. The set and setting of the White House would have been exciting. I bet a good dose may have totally alleviated the back pain that John suffered from.
If there's any truth in that it certainly would make a lot of people mad; bankers, the CIA, Pentagon, war contractors and pick pocket politician to name a few.With plenty of money and insider help, the killing of the President had to happen to maintain the golden road of hot and cold wars and several other crime syndicate endeavors. Lyndon Johnson was waiting in the wings to fulfill the evil dream.
It's possible that JFK could have undergone a transformation in part because of LSD. It may just be a good story but we can look at some of the facts and speculations.
So who was Mary Pinchot Meyer?
From Belle News
A book claims that socialite Mary Pinchot Meyer, a beautiful divorcee who was close friends with the Kennedys and is widely known for having a lengthy affair with the playboy President, was shot in a cover-up operation by the CIA.
Mary’s Mosaic: The CIA Conspiracy to Murder John F. Kennedy. Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision of World Peace by Peter Janney alleges that, in her preoccupation with her lover’s assassination and ensuing personal investigation, Mary Pinchot Meyer may have gotten so close to the “truth” that the CIA found her to be a threat.
As a result, CIA operatives staged a shooting to make it look like Mary Pinchot Meyer died due to a sexual assault that turned violent.
Whether or not the theory is true, there are a number of questionable components to the story of the months leading up to Mary Pinchot Meyer’s death on October 12, 1964.
Her ex-husband, Cord Meyer, was a CIA agent himself and the couple were card-carrying members of Georgetown’s starry social set, which included then-Senator John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline.
The couples became close friends, along with Mary Pinchot Meyer’s sister Antoinette (who went by Tony) and her husband Ben Bradlee, who was a bureau chief for Newsweek but later went on to be the managing editor of The Washington Post.
Another couple that they spent time with was Mary Pinchot Meyer’s Vassar classmate Cicely d’Autremont and her husband James Angleton, who was the chief of the counter surveillance for the CIA.
In the book, the author claims that Mary Pinchot Meyer would often bring marijuana and LSD to her trysts with the President.
During their conversations while on these hallucinogens, Mary Pinchot Meyer reportedly tried to appeal to JFK’s pacifist nature and urged him to seek peaceful solutions to such worldwide crises like the Cold War and the Cuban missile crisis.
At the time, LSD was not illegal, and many, including Harvard professor Timothy Leary, advocated its use because they believed it helped people expand their knowledge base.
Peter Janney’s book is not the first to draw conclusions between Mary Pinchot Meyer’s friendship with Timothy Leary and her intentions with her relationship with JFK.
He goes on to say that Mary Pinchot Meyer was later murdered by the CIA, who he believes organized JFK’s assassination in an effort to stop him from preventing violent escalation that they wanted in the Cold War.
One question lies in the existence- and retrieval- of Mary Pinchot Meyer’s diary that included writings about her affair with JFK.
Within a day of her murder, Ben Bradlee went over to her home to find the diary and, though the door was locked, he found James Angleton.
The CIA spymaster said that he also was looking for the diary but claimed that it was because his wife – Mary Pinchot Meyer’s friend – had asked him to.
The whereabouts of the diary today are uncertain. more
