Skip to comments.The Kennedy Assassination (November 22, 1963) 50 Years Later
Posted on 11/22/2013 3:56:56 PM PST by B4Ranch
November 22, 2013, is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The true story of JFK's murder has never been officially admitted, although the conclusion that JFK was murdered by a plot involving the Secret Service, the CIA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff has been well established by years of research, such as that provided by James W. Douglass in his book, JFK And The Unspeakable, published by Simon & Schuster in 2008. Ignore Douglass's interest in the Trappist monk Thomas Merton and Merton's prediction and focus on the heavily documented research that Douglass provides.
Or just turn to the contemporary films, taken by tourists watching JFK's motorcade that are available on YouTube, which show clearly the Secret Service pulled from President Kennedy's limo just prior to his assassination, and the Zapruder film that shows the killing shot to have come from President Kennedy's right front, blowing off the back of his head, not from the rear as postulated in the Warren Commission Report, which would have pushed his head forward, not rearward.
I am not going to write about the assassination to the extent that the massive information permits. Those who want to know already know. Those who cannot face the music will never be able to confront the facts regardless of what I or anyone else writes or reveals.
To briefly review, the facts are conclusive that JFK was on terrible terms with the CIA and the Joint Chiefs. He had refused to support the CIA organized Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. He had rejected the Joint Chiefs' "Operation Northwoods," a plan to commit real and faked acts of violence against Americans, blame Castro and use the false-flag events to bring regime change to Cuba. He had rejected the Joint Chiefs case that the Soviet Union should be attacked while the US held the advantage and before the Soviets could develop delivery systems for nuclear weapons. He had indicated that after his reelection he was going to pull US troops out of Vietnam and that he was going to break the CIA into a thousand pieces. He had aroused suspicion by working behind the scenes with Khrushchev to defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis, leading to claims that he was "soft on communism." The CIA and Joint Chiefs' belief that JFK was an unreliable ally in the war against communism spread into the Secret Service.
It has been established that the original autopsy of JFK's fatal head wound was discarded and a faked one substituted in order to support the official story that Oswald shot JFK from behind. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and President Johnson knew that Oswald was the CIA's patsy, but they also understood, as did members of the Warren Commission, that to let the true story out would cause Americans to lose confidence in their own government at the height of the Cold War.
Robert Kennedy knew what had happened. He was on his way to being elected president and to holding the plotters accountable for the murder of his brother when the CIA assassinated him. A distinguished journalist, who was standing behind Robert Kennedy at the time of his assassination, told me that the killing shots came from behind past his ear. He submitted his report to the FBI and was never contacted.
Acoustic experts have conclusively demonstrated that more shots were fired than can be accounted for by Sirhan Sirhan's pistol and that the sounds indicate two different calibers of firearms.
I never cease to be amazed by the gullibility of Americans, who know nothing about either event, but who confidently dismiss the factual evidence provided by experts and historians on the basis of their naive belief that "the government wouldn't lie about such important events" or "someone would have talked." What good would it do if someone talked when the gullible won't believe hard evidence?

Paul Craig Roberts is back!
The left just can’t let widespread belief form that JFK was killed by a leftist.
My God! Somebody has to investigate this!
Bingo. Killed by a lib, dem, commie. Sorry, folks, get over it.
They let Michael Skakel outta prison, why don’t they release Sirhan?
As to Oswald, I think the story concerning his actions in Dallas that day are true. Ruby's role is an enigma.
Never knew to much about Oswald but our local talk host today said he didn't act alone. Well, pony up the rest of it. Oswald did renounce his American citizenship and go to Russia via fancy hotels in Finland during the cold war. Then Oswald went to Minsk where he met and married Marine.
After a period, he returned to the US which had to be intentional because Russia didn't let people out, the US didn't let traitors in. Somebody bankrolled the whole mess.
In an obscure page of a Russian report, Oswald was described as (not exact words) bumpkin and similar.
I watched that whole weekend and the funeral. Instinctively, and I wasn't into conspiracy or any of that kind of thinking then, I decided not to bother reading it because I didn't believe it would be true and don't to this day.
As to the second shooter, I don't know. I always wondered how much Jackie knew and why she kept quiet, unless it was out of fear for herself and children.
I am so incredibly weary of this. It has been going on for almost 50 years.
It’s over-—live with it.
Clint Hill was just on the local DFW channel 11 news describing how Jackie was on the back of the car retrieving “parts” that were blown off of the presidents head that were on the trunk. She was retrieving parts when he jumped on the BACK of the car to offer cover or help. If he had been shot from the back with the head shot, brains and blood would have been al over the driver and the hood of the car. Instead, they were on the rear back deck.
JFK was wearing a back brace because of his weak back from previous injuries. When the first or second bullet went through his neck (back to front) and exited under his larynx, he could not fall over as the brace held him upright.
Watch the zapruder film, slow motion and you can see that he was shot through the head from front to back.
Oh, yes! Definitely.
Was there a big to-doo made on the 50th anniversary of Lincoln’s death?
Forward motion of the car would cause airflow to move from front to back and capture expended matter with it.
Watch 'JFK; The Smoking Gun', which pins the head shot on Secret Service agent George Hickey. Here he's holding the AR-15 that he allegedly accidentally fired into the back of Kennedy's skull (when vehicle lurched forward, causing Hickey's finger to pull the trigger) with a frangible round that exited out the right top/front of Kennedy's skull.
I agree with this theory. It sure seems as though the deadly head shot exited out the top/front of Kennedy's head and that an 'exploding' bullet was used, unlike the type of ammo Oswald used which was found to be intact and barely damaged.
This head shot lines up perfectly as Kennedy's head is bowed down after have already been shot through the neck by Oswald. At least 11 people on the ground testified to smelling gun smoke at street level after Kennedy was hit. Oswald was 6 stories up and over 250 ft. BEHIND these vehicles. Do the math.
My God! It’s so clear! How could I not see it before?
So who was up on the grassy knoll??
“Forward motion of the car would cause airflow to move from front to back and capture expended matter with it.”
5mph? Yea, right. High volume of airflow at 5 MILES PER HOUR!
Haa haa, that’s funny, I don’t care who you are!
Weird comment that I have never heard before and yet has popped up 20 times in the last week,,,
that Oswald was a commie
Oswald was a PATSY
