Oswald in New Orleans
« on: January 05, 2020, 05:12:23 AM »
To start off with..Why did Oswald [in April 1963] decide to jump up..leave his wife and baby in Dallas and depart for New Orleans?
If your answer is because he must have been really looney-- than you must be and it would show that you have studied nothing about this case.
There were no shortages of jobs in Dallas in 1963. You could practically quit a job you didn't like and walk across the street and get another one.
Get into some real discussion... Hint-- 544 Camp St  :-\

WOW!!...  Thank You, Jerry...  This very question has nagged me for decades.   WHY did Lee suddenly decide to go to New Orleans?... It was NOT to seek unskilled labor employment...Because as you've pointed out there were hundreds of unskilled labor jobs ( like a machinery oiler in a coffee plant) available in the  Dallas / Fort Worth area.  ( and many of those jobs paid better wages than the job at Rielly's coffee plant. However the Dallas FW jobs were hundreds of miles away from the operating area of Bannister and Associates.) 
IMO he was asked to move his operation ( intelligence activities) to N.O. ...and he was NOT unemployed at the time.   It was his employer who requested that he transfer his base of operations to New Orleans and see if he could determine who was controlling the renegades who were attacking Cuba, and Russian ships in Cuba.
Lee's mission was to gather information about WHO was  operating illegally out of Louisiana and defying JFK's orders that all attacks on Cuba and the Russian ships there be halted.

The Warren Commission did not investigate Oswald in New Orleans. There was no investigation of 'private investigator' Guy Banister whose office Oswald was seen going into several times.
Reily Coffee is now Reily Foods...still just around the corner from Lafayette Park where Banister's office was.
Banister's secretary Ms Roberts testified before the HSCA and reportedly said the Oswald had been to Banister's office several times and on one occasion brought Marina with him [I don't think that was Marina]

Two weeks later? Thatís some serious fleeing!

If they actually had any evidence that Oswald was the one who shot at Walker, would he have somehow been immune from prosecution in New Orleans, using his real name and not hiding?

LHOís attempt to go check out Nixon (with his pistol), which Marina says she thwarted, helped convince her that LHO should get out of Dallas and go to New Orleans.

Except Nixon didnít come to Dallas anywhere near that time.

The question was: Why did LHO go to New Orleans? Whether or not Nixon was actually there isnít relevant to the question. Marina apparently believed what she said LHO told her. And this was a contributing factor in the decision to go to New Orleans.
