His death wasn’t an accident, he had outlived his usefulness and became a threat.
And that the Titanic had Isador Straus on board, not long after Levi Strauss invented the blue jean. Clearly a fouled-up attempt to stop the westernization of the world.
And American Motors once made a special edition “Levi Gremlin”. The clues are all there if you know where to look.
“His death wasnt an accident, he had outlived his usefulness and became a threat.”
He knew too much also.
Ike off’d him.
All your Patton are belong to us. Your country big liberal and conservatives in bad conditions.
acting at the behest of Montgomery,
who did the dastardly deed,
as they also snuffed out Diana
a la mismo modus operandi.
They were ivory. Only a pimp in a New Orleans whorehouse would have pearl handled revolvers!
Some of what you say makes sense such as the U.S. being tired of war but some of it is more nonsense than some of the conspiracy stuff.
I just glanced at my world map and the distance from much of Europe to Moscow was quite a bit shorter than from Tinian to Tokyo. B-29’s could easily have made the round trip and escorted at that.
With atomic weapons we could have told Stalin to get out of town before sundown and he would have had no other choice but to do it. That is if he did not have spies in our government who would have assured him we would never do it.
It was ... it could be construed that God was calling Patton home in order to make him available for another war. Patton always believed he was reincarnated from an earlier warrior who commanded in war.
Not sure if he hit the partition or not, or even if there was a plexiglass partition in the vehicle. However plexiglass did exist in WWII ... it was used in aircraft all the time.
Thanks for the ping. Patton was a great general, but he wasn’t popular with the military or civilian hierarchy. That much is known. As to whether he was murdered, I will reserve judgment.
Most of the vehicles we gave the Soviets were trucks, which they need badly. We gave them relatively M4 Sherman tanks. The didn't need them. They had the T34, the best tank of the war. It was in production into the 1950's and was still in use as late as the 90's.
Tank for tank, a late war T-34 will eat a Sherman for breakfast.
Wow I loused that post up badly, let’s try it again:
Most of the vehicles we gave the Soviets were trucks, which they needed badly. We gave them relatively few M4 Sherman tanks. The didn’t need them. They had the T-34, the best tank of the war. It was in production into the 1950’s and was still in use as late as the 90’s.

Now really. Can you think of any time period in history, when there were more seasoned, skilled killers hanging about looking for something to do, than the second half of 1945? And when a hit is called for, a fairly extraordinary target too, they can’t do better than this?
“FDR was reelected in 44 and would not stand for reelection, and coronation, until 48. I am not so sure Patton would have been his adversary”
FDR kicked the bucket in the spring of ‘45. Wait that was impossible, I mean he bought the farm ‘45.
I seem to recall seeing faded bloodstains on the top of the back cushion.
His account of his memories from those earlier lives is a fascinating chapter in his autobiography. If one goes along with your idea, then in the next big war, can we expect to see his reincarnated self. In times of grave national crisis, do you expect to see American patriots reincarnated in this time to continue their fight for our country ? This makes interesting speculation if so. I think Ben Franklin has already reincarnated as Rush.
Sounds like you’ve been to Greenfield Village. Seems to me that they also have Washington’s camp cot, the Wright bros bicycle shop, Edisons Menlo park lab and lord knows a lot of other historical artifacts. I believe the Kennedy assasination car is in the Henry Ford museum now.
I haven’t been over there for years but it seems like the automotive history museum had some interesting things in it. One that stuck with me was a Trans Am station wagon concept car.
Ever read the account of Rasputin's assassination(s)?
Please excuse this OT diversion, but your comment about Hamid Karzai piqued my curiosity. If you really have met him (and if I’m not missing a subtle joke on your part... /g), does he, in your opinion, deserve the bad press and criticism he’s getting.
I’ve posted in previous discussions about seeing a Military Channel program in early 2002 showing Karzai fighting alongside our SpecOps guys and providing invaluable liaison and intelligence services as they were rooting al Quaida and the Taliban out of Afghanistan in the wake of 9-11.
My impression has always been he’s getting a bum rap and has been set up as a fall guy by our side. Any opinions?
The Thing that Wouldn't Die. Stabbed, repeatedly shot, poisoned, clubbed. Finally drowned when they bound him and chucked him in a river with all that damage- and even that almost wasn't enough, he managed to get free of his bonds. I think I read that he got trapped under the ice.
You can't help meeting a guy like that.
Yes, he gets an unfairly bad press ~ that's due to the fact he's been killing commies since the beginning of time. You can't expect the fruitcakes at the WashPost or NYT or their friends to deal fairly with the man.
Remember, they relocated all their industry some 800 miles to the East. Indianapolis, Louisville and Detroit were the major centers of war materiel and canned spam shipped to the Eastern front. These were deep inland cities selected for the most serious of war-making capacity ~ and all you had to do was look at what was happening to the Russian territories "deep inland" to see what was up.
The folks designing and commanding the war were not at all confident that we were going to win.
>> Ever read the account of Rasputin’s assassination(s)?
Hasn’t everyone? They weren’t professionals. If I were the hitman responsible for Patton surviving an “accident” like that, I’d be so mortified I’d hang up my piano wire and retire. Open a bait and tackle somewhere on the lower Rhine.

General Patton was assassinated to silence his criticism of allied war leaders claims new book
Lincoln's Salem courthouse, stone cottages from the Cotswolds, Luther Burbank's greenhouse (Burbank, Edison, and Harvey Firestone were all friends whom Ford idolized); and so on and so on!
Something well worth a visit to the detroit area.
It was a pretty common field trip destination for my school when I was a kid.
George Washington has reincarnated as John Huntsman, Sr.
Thomas Paine has reincarnated as Glenn Beck.
Of course not. But to think that we “lost China” makes about as much sense as the thought that the United States “lost France” to Nazi Germany in 1940.
Not exactly. What you say is true overall. But a new study came out about two years ago showing that at the battle of Moscow (41-42) the OVERWHELMING number of tanks were either Shermans or British tanks, and 85% of their heavy tanks were Brit. We made, or designed, Soviet aircraft engines until 1945; we made all their radio wire; we made a lot of their radios; and it was the shipping through the Arctic ports (thanks Henry Kaiser) that kept the USSR afloat (no pun intended) at all. Moreover, new studies on US/Brit intelligence show that the Russkis won key tactical showdowns because of what we were feeding them. Oh, and the T-34 was based on an American design.
Big difference. The Japanese had no more fighters. But to cross Europe to Moscow??? Fuggedabout it. We would have encountered hordes of Soviet planes the whole way-—and remember, the weight of the Bomb was so great that I don’t think you could carry more than one per plane, meaning every plane that went down was a complete loss to our nuke arsenal. Then there were the duds. As late as the 1970s, a full 15% of our rockets and bombs failed (this is actually pretty low). But still, take a 100 plane raid, spruce it up with 100 decoys, then siphon out 15% duds, then apply Soviet air defenses . . . .? Nope, wouldn’t be sufficient to even make a dent in Soviet ground capabilities.
And let me again refer you to THE book on the subject by Col Harry Borowski, “Hollow Threat.”
OMG, I forgot about that. Along with the LawnDart Pinto, who could miss it?
Your point is well taken. My premise of being a different country is intact. Hitler said the world will only survive in ‘Eternal Conflict”. When will the world prove him wrong?The islamofacists are even more ruthless than the Germans or the Russians could ever be. Our grand children’s lives are at stake and it is good to know that WE the people are very aware of our new enemy. The coming war is at hand and pray to God it does not start we us first.
Not to mention the other problem with the hospital in Mannheim. It's very very noisy there because it's located right next to the steamroller factory.
See my post #21. Don’t spend your money on the book. It reads like a rehash of a 1970’s novel about an assassination plot to kill Patton using a rubber bullet.
No question, and I think this battle has to be fought in the cultural arena as well as military and political. I favor a new “Radio Free Islam/Voice of America” to erode and undermine Al-Jazeera.
I don't know of John Huntsman, Sr., but the Glenn Beck/Thomas Paine is one of those things where you just slap your head, of course !
Radio Free Islam/Voice of America
I really like your thinking. How about some audio guys telling us how it can be done?
Thanks! I won’t spend my money on this rehash of a 1970’s novel.
