AUTHOR'S NOTE: For a number of weeks, RFFM.org will write a series of columns on the conspiracies which have helped to form the world we live in today. From the killers themselves to the media's role in conspiracies, RFFM.org will attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff. There will be no discussions of flying saucers, USO's (unidentified submerged objects) or the like in this series. RFFM.org encourages readers to submit intelligent comments about the existence of conspiracies and, who knows, perhaps one of the real killers of JFK might actually write in.
Now, before I start receiving weird comments about strange things, let me make one thing perfectly clear. I don't believe aliens landed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. I don't believe thousands of people are being abducted by little gray men every year and I don't believe President George Bush knew that two of the most important buildings in the financial world would be attacked on 9/11 and didn't do anything about it. Folks, that would be the last place a capitalist nation would have destroyed.
However, I think it's almost a certainty that John F. Kennedy was the victim of a conspiracy that took his life on November 22, 1963. I also believe ...

"Held back" by whom? Released by whom? And if it's such a bombshell, why is it only found on "the Kennedy assassination sites"? All of the clips I found have the same narration track. Who shot it, who edited it, and who's narrating?
The "Magic Bullet" Theory
This is the glorious magic bullet trajectory that all the conspiracy experts subscribe to:
It "Magically" twists in mid air moves two feet to Kennedys right and hits Connelly. Problem is Connelly wasn't sitting in front of JFK. he was lower and to his left in a jump seat. This is a rare photo of the limo after it arrived in DC the day of the assassination
Notice the jump seat. See how the far the seat is from the door jam? Well fine and well but can't tell from that angle. Look at Connelly in this photo (behind Mrs. Connellys head hard to see I know).
See the top of his head is lower. "Yeah but what about to the seat to JFK's left?. Here's a real treat. A very rare 8 mm film shot by Dave Powers (a very close friend of JFK) on 11/22/63 from the car directly behind Kennedys. He unfortuniately ran out of film 10 mins before they got to Dealy Plaza (Right click on the link and save it to your desktop. Makes it easier to blow up for better detail to see where Connelly is sitting. Its only 3.5megs and you need Quicktime to view it)
Look at where Connelly is, directly to his left. So that kills the theory of the bullet making a sharp turn to the right.
So heres its official course:
This is what Oswalds 140 foot shot whould have looked like on 11/22/63.
The Oswald shot itself was recreated for A Discovery Channel special "Unsolved History: JFK Beyond the Magic Bullet". It attempted to replicate, as best as possible, the conditions of that day. The participants set up blocks of ballistics gel with a substance similar to human bone inside. These studies showed that largely undeformed bullets were possible to produce, if they were slowed by a passage though a tissue-like substance before striking bone. Next, two mannequin figures made of ballistic anatomical substances (animal skin, gelatin, and interior bone-like cast) were set up in the exact relative position of JFK and Connally.
A marksman, from a distance equal to that of the sixth floor of the Book Depository building, fired the same rifle model found in the Book Depository, using a round from the same batch of "Western Case Cartridge Company" 6.5x52 mm ammunition purchased with the surplus Carcano weapon in early 1963. The path of their single bullet (followed by high speed photography) duplicated, almost exactly, the wounds suffered by the victims that day, the only difference being that the bullet did not quite have enough energy to penetrate the "thigh" substance in front of the Connally figure, because it struck an extra bone in the "rib" model (i.e., it fractured 2 ribs in the model vs. one rib in Connally). It was also slightly more deformed than CE 399, possibly for the same reason. However, this bullet came close enough to duplicating all wounds in both men with a single shot, with a bullet having little deformation. Thus the theory was proven to be much more plausible than previously thought.
If you like I can tell you about the Grassy Knowl shot and why it couldn't be done.
However, I don't GET IT.
And I MUCH prefer to get sarcasm I'm the focus of! LOL.
in terms of conspiracies . . .
I believe globalists at least sicked the Jihadis on the WTC.
I'm still quite skeptical our beloved President had anything to do with it. etc. etc. etc.
I wouldn't trust his father, however, with used toilet paper. . . . nor his father's father.
Studying the topic of the globalist conspiracy since 1965 . . . partly forced to by my job of preparing the primary reference materials of the Alderdice Collection for University library patron use . . .
having a close relative work directly under Otto Kraus in a highly classified job where he saw UFO's not daily as I'd thought but quite frequently . . .
all leaves me with a perspective rather uncommon in my experience.
It's interesting, the fellow using the classroom at the college before me teaches history. And, I think he fancies himself an expert on historic tyranny. I charitably label him such an expert, in any case.
He strikes me as a disgruntled 40's or so would-have-been hippie . . . certainly a flaming liberal.
He's always late in clearing the room so I've taken to saying pleasant things to him and asking him thought-provoking questions vs just tapping my inner foot for him to get out of there so I can set up the chairs in a U--which he seems unable to appreciate the advantage of--and insists they be changed back for his class after my two.
Anyway, One day recently, I'd just read a thread hereon about Christians being legally persecuted in Canada or some such . . . and was more annoyed about it than I MIGHT should have been considering that God is still working HIS WILL out, regardless.
And so I began in with this history prof . . . noting again that he was an expert on historic tyranny . . . and asking him . . . what would the next class/group of folks be likely to experience a new holocaust.
He was absolutely clueless--had no idea . . . started out talking about how he didn't think anyone would . . . wasn't aware of anyone etc.
I just noted that there was a group who'd already begun to experience legal tyranny and for whom it would get much worse. But that I thought it would be more educational for him to ponder it a while without my cluing him in.
I don't think he can get it. I think his biases are toooooo UTTERLY BLINDING. And, I think even if I piled the documentation high on his desk that he'd still deny it.
Denial is such a fascinating thing. I think it most tends to be married to idolatry.
In the history prof's case, I think his idolatry is to/of his clueless liberal idiot world view . . . and particularly against conservatives and their world view.
He had noted earlier that he didn't believe in any conspiracies . . . when I raised the issue of globalism. What a pile of stinking cluelessness! The evidence is piled high in every corner of public life in overt ways. And still a lot of FREEPERS, even Christians remain clueless about it. Shocking.
Here we have 3--3 candidates for President every one of which is traitorous and every one of which is an overt globalist . . . two of whom are brazenly open Communists . . . one of whom is highly likely a practicing satanist. And the vast majority of the public are clueless. Even a lot of conservatives grossly as in !!!!GROSSLY!!!! UNDERESTIMATE the seriouisness of the CURRENT state of affairs--much less the horrors on the near horizon.
At this point in my study and observations on the topic, I don't have a lot of patience any more for folks who walk around like SHEEPLE with their heads in a garbage can . . . and the can duct taped securely over their heads, their eyes, their ears . . .
Instead of the old . . . SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL, SPEAK NO EVIL . . .
IT'S SEE NO REALITY, HEAR NO REALITY, SPEAK NO REALITY.
I wonder . . . how many FREEPERS know Jewish folks who went through the German holocaust. IF YOU DO, PLEASE POLL THOSE INDIVIDUALS AND ASK THEM HOW LIKE PREWAR GERMANY IS THE USA, NOW.
The ones I've heard of 100% say it's very much like then.
Which reminds me of the thing I've often repeated by my Univ Library boss--the one who was labeled Director of the Special Collections Dept but who had too much on his plate as Reference librarian so left me in charge . . . and who was/is the world's best expert on Pre-Hitler ephemera, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, etc. most accurately and earliest describing quite well who Hitler was and what Hitler would become and do.
Those EARLIEST WARNING AND MOST ACCURATE materials came from the MOST FRINGE organizations and were viewed as the flakiest organizations. Yet their predictions came chillingly true to the letter.
JEWS EVEN laughingly derided such ideas . . . up until, in many cases, they were marched off to the boxcars, themselves.
Today, we have many laughing conservatives . . . denying the BLAZING NEON handwriting on the wall and all across every media--and laughing at those watchmen on the wall crying PREPARE! PREPARE! WALK CLOSE TO GOD! WORK! WORK! WORK! WHILE THERE'S LIGHT, THE NIGHT IS FAST APPROACHING.
Those in the miniority who are alert and listening to God and the warnings are preparing. The clueless will likely remain clueless in large part.
I laugh . . . on ABOVETOPSECRET.COM there are threads about how can we stop the NWO etc. etc. etc. Scripture is clear . . . there will be NO stopping it. Perhaps prayer and righteous living will delay it somewhat . . . PERHAPS . . . though there hasn't seemed to be much of either flooding the land . . . except maybe for a couple of weeks after the WTC and Katrina, each.
Even my step-dad . . . I asked him to please pray about how we should prepare the home place here--the acre we have left. And he quickly decried stocking up on food citing God feeding the Israelites in the wilderness and Elish's widow woman. And, certainly God did and can and will. But God is also likely to let some go a bit hungrier a bit longer than they otherwise would have, had they prepared when He was telling them to and enabling them to.
I guess at this point, satire and mocking of my positions and pontifications vis a vis the globalist conspiracy (of which the UFO aspect is but a sub-unit) . . . hardly even registers very significantly except as futher evidence of citizen blindness; citizen swallowing of the long served kool-aid . . . citizen reluctance to face uncomfortable facts.
But such is the lot of the watchman on the wall . . . given inexorably to seeing things beyond the horizon . . . things definitely headed this way . . . which will definitely arrive . . . and not at all only intruding during the commercials.
Will I take a lot of comfort when folks finally are forced to wake up as more and more of their friends are awakened at 03:00-04;00 for a 'little trip with us, please. No need to take your things. It will just be a short trip. We just have some questions.'
Will I be comforted to finally be proven right? Not so much. I already have absolutely 0.000000% doubt about being right. I can't be any more convinced about being right. On the whole, it will be quite sad to see it come to pass . . .
EXCEPT THAT, PRAISE GOD, ALMIGHTY GOD WILL ALSO BE DEMONSTRATING HIS MAJESTY MORE THAN EVER BEFORE . . . RAISING UP A STANDARD AGAINST THE ENEMY AND CAUSING HIS KIDS TO DO GREAT EXPLOITS FOR HIM AND HIS KINGDOM. THAT WILL BE GREAT CAUSE FOR REJOICING. But narrow is the way . . . and so relatively few (percentage-wise) seem to be finding it and walking steadily thereon.
It didn’t take any consipiracy sites in a nonexisting web in 1963? was it? I forget.
I knew within days that it was a conspiracy. I never believed the Warren report. It reeked of coverup and high-handed shenanigans. I even suspected LBJ had something to do with it. And, it was one of the reasons I felt Gerald Ford was unfit for the Presidency and was obviously a globalist stooge filling in dutifully. I felt he was on the Warren Commission . . . as were all the rest—hand-picked to insure that the party line was promulgated.
I’ve read nothing since to dissuade me.
And I think the media shows indicating a conspiracy are much more convincing that those trying vainly to say there wasn’t one.
BTW, one of the interesting facets of both Marilyn Monroe’s death and Kennedy’s is their reported statements just prior there to about outting at least part of the UFO stuff.
If the powers that be demand that you play their game
or else they will cause you and every living relative you have to disappear from the face of the earth . . .
it tends to get one’s attention.
And that’s assuming that you weren’t philosophically on board with their agenda to begin with.
“but SHEEPLE prefer to be sheeple . . . than to face complex, troublesom and frightening things that essentially spell the end of life as we have known it.”
Sheeple or not, I prefer to follow the evidence, and my own viewpoint, which is to rely on human nature as I understand it.
There have been some obvious cover-ups in my lifetime, such as TWA flight 800, and the death of Vincent Foster. But my best judgment is that Lee Oswald was the lone assassin of JFK. You are entitled to disagree if you wish.
The apple does not fall far from the horse.
Thanks for your kind comment.
INDEED: MARANATHA, JESUS!
Of course we are still authorized our own opinions. LOL.
Time will certainly tell.
But on the JFK thing—the evidence has been in for quite a while, imho.
Just happened across this thread at ATS:
Kennedy’s Iron Mountain Report, Truth or Hoax?
Many have said that the Iron Mountain Report was a hoax. You decide.
In 1961, President John F. Kennedy became interested in what the outcome would be if we became a society of peace, rather than one of war. He then ordered a ‘Top Secret’ study to see what the possible outcome might be. This project was referred to, as bringing America into a ‘New World Order.’
Kennedy’s Study Group entailed fifteen different fields of expert study topics. The group’s first and last meetings were held in an underground nuclear survival area called, Iron Mountain. The report ended in 1966. As many of us know, President Kennedy was shot and killed in 1963 in Dallas, Tx. He didn’t get the chance to explain a speech that he had made at Columbia University, some years earlier.
In 1963, the same year as the selection of specialists for this “Top Secret” study, President John F. Kennedy made an astounding statement. On November 13, while speaking at Columbus University, Pres. Kennedy stated, “The high office of the President of the United States of America has been used to foment a plot to destroy America’s freedom, and before I leave office, I must inform the citizens of their plight! Ten days later, President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed.
It was recommended by President Johnson that the report be sealed and that only those, ‘who needed to know’ should ever see it. It was also concluded that the American people were not intelligent enough to view it and understand it.
To quote directly from the cover letter of this report: (paragraph three) “Because of the unusual circumstances surrounding the establishment of this Group, and in view of the nature of its finding, we do not recommend that this Report be released for publication...such actions would not be in the PUBLIC INTEREST (emphasis mine)..a lay reader, unexposed to the exigencies of higher political or military responsibility, will misconstrue the purpose of this project, and the intent... We urge that the circulation of the Report be closely restricted to those who’s responsibilities require that they be apprised of its contents...” Those who responsibilities require they know? Would this be the people who will be working to bring us into a New world Order?
One of the members, at great risk to himself, decided to release the information to the public and let them decide for themselves. He released the information under the name of John Doe. The Establishment, quickly called it a hoax. It is my understanding that some larger libraries still have copies.
You should also note that ‘Silent Weapons For Quiet Wars,’ is also mentioned in this study.
If you love animals, read Tiki’s story:
Go to the sites and see. It was shot by a private citizen the day of...his family held it back until after his death...it’s there, wish I could remember the site, but it’s one of the major assassination sites.
Gee, how could I doubt it, with a provenance like that?
Have no idea what the hell that means or what your refering to, but since your other followup is wacked and you don't want to know the truth anyways, all I'll say to you is "Happy Drinking!"
I wasn’t remembering the precise year JFK was Fosterized.
BTW, I’ve never even been tipsy in my 61 years. I drink maybe 1-4 glasses of wine—one glas with a meal—that many times a year.
I’d guess you’re about as WRONG about conspiracies as you are about my drinking.
I was just trying to note that there were no websites way back then, of course . . .
but that it was still fairly obvious to many of us that a conspiracy was involved.
But then some of us are more experienced & perceptive at reading nuances than others.
Kennedys Iron Mountain Report
If you commit a crime against your government, you are charged with conspiracy. Why would you rule out any conspiracy committed by a govt? That is naive. Just because it's cool to ridicule people who think for themselves, and conspiracy is a vehicle used not to think? Where have the ‘Perry Mason’ type thinkers gone?
Judging by my research, the JFK assassination is somewhat unique in that you cannot rely on any information from the mainstream media or govt. You must go directly to the evidence and judge for yourself, and if your willing to do that I assure you that you will find conspiracy. Your own House of Representatives determined that there was most likely a conspiracy, read up on that.
The UPI article I cited was fascinating, and was a complete account from people on the scene. I would hardly discount the comments of the SS there, it was they who reported shots from the knoll to the media. I applaud them for getting a report like that out!
Get a hold of the live NBC breaking broadcast that day, and listen to the interview with a witness that was 10ft away from JFK and facing the knoll. She reported shots from there also. If that isn't contributing evidence that would be considered I don't know what would, especially more so after seeing the direction of the shot from the right front on the Zapruder film.
***And your point is?
Conspiracy theorists love to point to initial reports with “details” not found later, as if they contain some kernels of truth that were later covered up. Anyone who's worked a breaking news story (or for that matter followed a breaking news thread on FR) knows what a load of codswallop that is.***
I know you were limited by space in your story, but you made a very important omission by not mentioning the Vincent Foster murder conspiracy. I should hope you are intelligent enough to see that the official conclusions of “suicide” there were a complete whitewash of a heinous crime!
