For more than half a century, the combined American thought establishment (media, publishing, film, academia, and the like) have been cranking out a steady stream of books, articles, films, plays and more that present a completely false picture of what the assassination of John F. Kennedy was about — including who was behind it, and why.

No mention of the tremendous animus massed against John and Robert Kennedy from every quarter, including but hardly limited to Wall Street, the oil industry, the steel industry, the armaments industry, big publishers, the Pentagon, the CIA, the Mob, the John Birchers. They all hated John and Robert Kennedy and wanted them out. They said it to each other, and virtually spat it in the brothers’ faces. Ruthless men, men who found violence a necessary tool of success.

Yet, who killed John F. Kennedy? We are told that it was one angry, unstable man. Forget that the evidence — massively documented in hundreds of books, government papers and more — is that Oswald was nothing like the way he was portrayed, but instead, a focused, deliberate individual with a history that almost certainly involved participation with American intelligence.

One can debate that forever, though the assembled evidence is that it was not Oswald at all who wanted Kennedy dead, not Oswald who shot him. More important, however, is the evidence, everywhere, of a coverup — from hanky-panky in the autopsy room to a shockingly premature termination of any efforts to seriously investigate. Was the coverup itself not proof of more going on? Of course it was.


If this were Stalinist Russia or 1984, we could understand who was behind this giant hoax perpetrated against the people. But this is the Land of the Free. How is it that a Big Lie of such magnitude could roll along, unflinchingly, after half a century? Yet, let’s consider the tremendous output of this well-oiled machine, and ask ourselves: How does this work?

Though polls have shown varying majorities of the public (sometimes more than 80 percent) disbelieving the “lone nut” story over the years, and though the House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded that Kennedy’s death was the result of a probable conspiracy, the establishment continues to produce and approve, with a few controversial and flawed exceptions, narratives that support the “Oswald done it” school.

It would seem there are more people who believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny than who believe Oswald did it alone. Nevertheless, the propaganda keeps coming. The entire establishment spectrum, from “liberals” to arch-conservatives, has continually backed the Warren Commission’s discredited version. For example, liberal TV host Chris Matthews of MSNBC has repeatedly promoted the Lone Nut angle on his own show, on other shows, Access Hollywood, for example, and in interviews, such as this one with the Los Angeles Times.

Below we begin with only a few choice examples to demonstrate the chicanery involved in selling the Lone Nut theory. The first is about the manipulating and cropping of an interview by CBS to make a witness appear to say something he did not. The second demonstrates a deceptive presentation of Kennedy’s posture in a computer simulation by Emmy-Award winner Dale Myers, to promote the single-bullet theory. The third is about a high tech show that made the gory head shot appear to support the official line.


Vintage BS from CBS

The first big special promoting the government-approved narrative was the 1967 CBS four-part documentary series The Warren Report, which had been labeled “independent.” In fact, it was full of tricks.

According to Robert Hennelly and Jerry Policoff, the series was “secretly reviewed and seemingly altered by former Warren Commission member John Jay McCloy, through a ‘Dad says’ memo written by his daughter Ellen McCloy, the administrative assistant of CBS News president Richard Salant; within that same CBS series, the testimony of Orville Nix — an amateur filmmaker who captured the ‘grassy knoll’ angle on tape — was tailored to fit the requirements of CBS’s Warren Commission slant.

Here’s how they pulled off that particular trick, as reported by his granddaughter, Gayle Jackson Nix: With the cameras rolling, Nix had been asked where he thought the shots came from, and he pointed to the grassy knoll area. Someone immediately yelled “Cut! Cut!” Then he was asked — with the camera off — Where did we tell you the shots came from? And — with the cameras rolling again — he indicated the Depository Building, where Oswald allegedly fired from a window. End result: when asked where the shots came from — Nix appears to answer by indicating the Depository Building — although that is not what he said at all.

To this day, most of the TV specials, articles, and books on the assassination are trying to refute the same fatal problems in the official narrative, sometimes using the same old tricks. More recently, with increasing sophistication and technology, they have found new ways to sell the same defective product.

(Note: CBS was founded by William S. Paley who, during World War II, was a colonel in the Psychological Warfare branch of the Office of War Information – so it is not surprising that he was mentioned by Carl Bernstein in his 1977 Rolling Stone article as being very helpful to the CIA. And here’s another interesting connection: as readers of Family of Secrets may know, Prescott Bush, who was on the CBS Board of Directors, was also a partner at Brown Brothers Harriman — an investment bank that played a major role in expanding Paley’s network.)

Dale Myers’s Hard Sell, Soft Science

One of the new techniques for peddling the false narrative is computer animation and, presumably, Dale K. Myers is a master at it. He won an Emmy for his computer animated recreation of the assassination featured in the ABC News 2003 television special, Peter Jennings Reporting: The Kennedy Assassination — Beyond Conspiracy.

Let’s take a look at one of Myers’s tricks to solve a major problem with the single bullet theory — the problem of the vertical path of the bullet: It is supposed to have gone through JFK’s back, out his throat, into Governor Connally’s back, out the front of his chest, through his wrist, and into part of his thigh.

The problem starts with the location of the back wound. Because the entrance in the back is too low compared with the alleged exit in the throat, the bullet would have to travel upward, and would therefore not be able to finish the journey through Connally. Not a problem for Myers:

One Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words


Myers turns Kennedy into a hunchback — effectively raising the back wound up, and the throat wound down. But this is how Kennedy actually looked, just seconds before the shooting began:

And now, please compare Myers’s distorted image with reality:


LEFT: Dale Myers’s portrayal of Kennedy’s posture. RIGHT: reality (a frame from a film taken by James Towner). The nearly horizontal white line going across the photo of Kennedy on the right is the top of the limousine window. By coincidence, it seems to follow the hypothetical path from the wound in Kennedy’s back to the wound in his throat.

In Myers’s grotesque rendition, Kennedy’s head is thrust forward, out from the hump on his back, like a turtle. The back of his jacket stands out like a shelf. Much of his throat area is in shadow, but if you look closely, you will see that the distance from chin to collar is about twice as great as it is in reality.This, in effect, lowers the throat wound. (Note: Years ago, these juxtaposed images and observations were originally posted on the CTKA website by WhoWhatWhy senior editor, Milicent Cranor.)

The above is just one example of many that appeared in the Peter Jennings special. It was a misleading come-on, because if we went “Beyond Conspiracy” ABC News style, we ended up right back where we started, with the government version — thanks to Dale Myers.

Splat Power and the Head Shot

In 2008, the Discovery Channel presented a graphics-heavy special called Inside the Target Car. Typical of the show was the fraudulent way in which they “proved” JFK was hit in the head by only one bullet. As noted by Milicent Cranor, they stacked the deck by using a simulated skull that, despite claims to the contrary, was not nearly as hard as a real one, a “skull” that would easily explode and break apart.

We know this is the case because of the condition of the bullet afterwards: it remained intact. Had it perforated a real head, which is much harder, the bullet would have fragmented. But would a real head show as much damage as that seen in Kennedy’s autopsy photos — if struck by only one jacketed bullet?

Other TV Specials

PBS, National Geographic, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, the Military Channel, the Smithsonian, Reelz, and of course Fox News — all continue to do their part, right into the present, selling the same old same old. And the website introduces its list of this year’s JFK specials with the words “According to four government investigations, Lee Harvey Oswald was the sniper who assassinated the president.”

Books, Films, Plays

In 2007, the famous prosecutor, Vincent Bugliosi, produced a six-pound volume — Reclaiming History, for which Bugliosi reportedly received a million dollars. And Dale Myers contributed a large hunk of it. Here, he was just as deceptive with words as he is with images. (Fox brought Bugliosi on Bill O’Reilly’s program, where the host lobbed softballs at him. Note: Critiques of the Bugliosi book can be found here.)

In 2011, the novelist Stephen King came out with his 11/22/63, in which he imagined a man time-traveling and stopping Oswald — who is of course a “troubled loner.” King’s book is now being made into a movie starring James Franco.

As a young reporter, Bill O’Reilly had presented evidence of conspiracy. But by 2012, as a major celebrity being paid vast sums, he had shifted to the Lone Nutter camp, and produced his huge bestseller, Killing Kennedy.

In 2013, for the 50th anniversary of the assassination, the publisher William Morrow brought out End of Days, from the author James Swanson, who, like O’Reilly, also wrote about Lincoln’s assassination. Swanson was rumored to have been paid a million dollars for his Lone Nutter explication. The book was praised by former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham, who in 2015 would come out with his own whitewash, an “authorized biography” of George H.W. Bush, which, among other things, left out Bush’s intriguing connection to the events of 11/22/63. It would be one of many examples of those carrying forward the establishment’s desired narrative by helping each other maintain the official story.

Also in 2013, Tom Hanks came out with the film Parkland, based on the writings of Bugliosi and Myers.

And in 2013, former New York Times reporter Philip Shenon published A Cruel and Shocking Act, which, according to NPR, “explores what keeps these conspiracy theories alive.”

This year, a play opened in Chicago that presents a “conspiracy theory” of a sort that has been a second-favorite with the establishment: the Mob did it. The favorable linked review is from Epoch Times, an anti-China enterprise suspected of being backed by the US government.


Some of the counter-factual material promulgated about JFK’s assassination masquerades as non-fiction, while the rest is presented as artful imagining. But even the latter raises the question: Isn’t the outcome of such artful imagining to influence how people think about events? In the end, “nonfiction” that is fiction, and fiction that is a distortion of reality, both contribute to keeping the public in the dark.

To be sure, there may be elements in the government whose job is to “keep people calm” through efforts to perpetuate reassuring fairy tales. But there are others who sense the desires of dominant interests and wittingly or unwittingly kowtow to them. From this kind of accommodation is fashioned professional success and personal riches. It is a deal with the devil, apparently one without adverse consequences — except for those of us who would prefer the truth to comforting lies.

    After so many years of misinformation, lies and ignorance, I’m of the mind that perhaps it is time for us to change our approach. What passes as government has suborned virtually all media and effectively dictated their response to any questions about JFK, RFK & MLK. The public has generally lost interest in truths of a past in which they didn’t live.
    I believe we should redirect our dialogue to emphasize the obvious coup which occurred in 1963 and use the assassinations as a proof.

    • bedleysmutler

      Paul: absolutely on the mark.

      • Paul Dell

        Thanks! But to who do we present such proofs? Therein lies the rub! We could assemble all of those in public service who might listen into a small conference room. Virtually everyone else would opt for screaming “Homeland Security”!!! People are convinced we’re insane, confused or both.
        I haven’t even gotten started about 9/11 yet!
        We, the people, of the United States of America…have sunk to depths well below those of 1963…

    It’s all about “Space Aliens”.

    When I was a kid I spent a couple of summers as a musical performer on midway and grandstand shows. During my breaks a couple of the young “carny’s”, who had become my friends, would take me around and show me how the various games of “skill” and “chance” were rigged to fleece the local “marks”. In the case of games of chance, the technique most often employed, one way or the other, was distraction.

    During the 50’s and 60’s, when the CIA and Air Force were testing advanced, secret aircraft the distraction used, when these aircraft were seen, was simply “outer space/alien technology versus official denial – no spaceships here!”. A whole industry emerged to do with the cover up of Space Alien visitors and their tech. Little, if anything, was raised about the possibilty of the UFOs being highly sophisticated – and outrageously expensive – espionage and weapons systems.

    Personally, I have come to believe that Oswald was a lone sniper. All of the multitude of conspiracy theories (multiple shooters, Mafia hit, etc.) are primarily “Space Alien” type distractions. But distracting from what? That interests me a lot. What is that I’m not supposed to be paying attention to? Perhaps such questions as who/what Oswald actually was, or how he came to find his way to such a perfectly set up killing zone (conveniently located at his workplace)?

    It may be that the possible parallels between the Secret Planes/Space Alien distractions and Kennedy Assassination Conspiracy distractions could be useful in identifying active, behind-the-scenes participants in Oswald’s circumstances and actions. However, it should be noted that during my midway schooling it was pointed out to me that the metal levers used to operate the thrill rides were not fastened in place, and were easily removable. These would be used to deals with any “marks” who decided to become “wise guys” and call out the carny deceptions . . .

    • Be interesting to know just how many investigative journalists have had contact with those ‘metal levers’.

    • bedleysmutler

      Richard: Your remarks are largely indistinguishable from the traditional ‘limited hangout’ used so well by intelligence propagandists. You say, “Personally, I have come to believe that Oswald was indeed a lone sniper. All of the multitude of conspiracy theories (multiple shooters, Mafia hit, etc.) are primarily “Space Alien” type distractions.” I would proffer this: in this instance, the delusional fantasy that Oswald was the lone assassin is the “space-alien type distraction.”

    Liars always lie. The CIA was founded, enhanced and misled by generations of liars.

    • Robert Macfarlane

      You seem to use the term “generations of liars” in a derogatory sense. The CIA operates a enormous team of spies around the world. By their very nature, they do not operate openly truthfully. Would you feel better if the spies didn’t hide behind secrecy and intrigue and maybe hung a sign around their neck “look at me! I’m a spy.”

      • VoxFox

        It’s the leadership of our Secret Government that are the persistent liars, particularly when they lie to the American people that is the problem.
        You seem comfortable in a world of liars – are you in government (or their largest division: the military)?

        • Robert Macfarlane

          I’m not “in” government, I live in the real world. If communication is less than 100% accurate, I’m going to roll with it. Because I’m educated, I feel comfortable filtering in-comming communication. I’m confident other people can do the same.

  • montag2

    Certainly, some of the WC proponents think the commission’s conclusions are the truth (and what reason would the government have to lie to us?), and some others will support the commission’s findings because of the belief that the nation could not survive the truth, that elements of the government plotted against a sitting President, and yet, about four-fifths of the people don’t believe the government’s story, and haven’t for damned near fifty years. Why? Because it’s just not difficult to see that the Warren Commission’s mandate wasn’t to extract the truth from the evidence, it was to promote an approved version of events–something that the notes of the first meeting of the commissioners made very clear–and by using evidence which would have made the job easier for Oswald’s defense attorneys had he survived.

    And that may be why the skepticism persists to this day, something as simple as Oswald being silenced before he could even be arraigned. That raw fact doesn’t sit well with everything else the government–and the naysayers–have said to date. That one irreducible truth may outweigh all the bullshit thrown at us over the years.

    • oatwillie

      A thought to ponder… At the time, this wasn’t a federal crime(!) and Texas does have a law against murder and Oswald would have come to trial in Dallas (probably). The chain of evidence was broken and Texas law was ignored making most evidence dismissable (autopsy must be made by Texas medical examiner), that the accused passed a paraffin test, ( Oswalds left hand only had gunshot residue, not on his cheek). Even the accusations of his murder of Patrolman Tippet were full of holes ( was he left handed?) as witnesses told of pressure and threats made against them. Shelll casings that wouldn’t fit his revolver, etc. Chances are, if Oswald lived and he had had a fair trial, he would have walked!

      In the 1960’s at the he I got of the Cold War but post Cuban missile crisis it is perfectly poss I ble they made a secret deal with the Soviets to keep quiet . When Kennedy was shot they , the Soviets , knew it was being pinned on them in some quarters so just wanted to weeknight out of it which has proved to be correct I mean if they didn’t do why should they know who did ? They had no idea the same as all of us now regarding 9/ 11 .

    • slobotnvich

      Well spake. Conspiracy theorists are invariably long on imagination but woefully lacking in technical knowledge – of anything. Not surprisingly, many of them are also passionate UFO believers. I’m a legitimate ballistics expert and have hunted on several continents, been through two tours in Vietnam and been wounded myself a couple of times. The shot that Oswald made was dead-easy at a target moving directly away (relative motion – none), he was firing from a rest, was a trained Marine marksman at a time when the Marines still really taught their people how to shoot, and at ranges up to 500 yards, had a rifle equipped with a 4X scope, and was shooting from a rest. It would have been a miracle had Oswald missed Kennedy’s head. I could have made that shot ten times out of ten with an old Winchester Model 94 .30-30 with iron sights.

      • Conrad

        Most people get their history education from TV anchor people. Big mistake. The JFK assassination was a coup. The result is what yu have today.

            Didn’t seem to be in 2000 .

      • Trouble is, the head shot came from the front. I’d think you would be wanting to get at the bottom of this farce. But I guess you either love war and guns and killing, or you’re a troll. Either way you need help. JFK was murdered by the powers that were in it for the money not for peace. Nobody makes money when there’s peace in the world. Crazy eh?

      • 25YearNavyVeteran

        SLOBOTNVICH -You’re long on wind, short on research…The best sniper in the world couldn’t make the shot. Your drivel is null and void. Carlos Hathcock: “Let me tell you what we did at Quantico. We reconstructed the whole thing: the angle, the range, the moving target, the time limit, the obstacles, everything. I don’t know how many times we tried it, but we couldn’t duplicate what the Warren Commission said Oswald did.
        Now if I couldn’t do it, how could a non-qual on the range do it?”

        • oatwillie

          Slobotnvich is wrong about this. Was he even a sniper? One wonders…Nix, whose filming of the shot was stolen by the FBI or other criminals repeatedly tried to tell investigators that the shot came from the grassy knoll area, but was never believed. There is a photo of another bullet being dug out of the grass on the side of the street. An FBI agent put it in his pocket and walked away. It was never accounted for. Another bullet strike was observed on the curbside. This was discounted. Another bullet strike was observed on the rim of the windshield of the limo and another through the glass of the same (a photo exists of this). Lucky Lyndon , the day after on the 23rd, had the limo driven to Ford (?) and repainted black and the interior stripped. It is unknown if any photos exist of its original condition. Evidence trampering on the grand scale.

      • mass in gill were cats chase fish smelling under delusions

      • Robert Macfarlane

        Your claim that Oswald was a “trained Marine marksman” is much too generous in describing LHO’s true skills. It took Lee several attempts to pass the Marksmanship test, and when he did pass, it was by only 1 point. Keep in mind that the scope on the rifle was not adjusted to fit the rifle. Had the shooter actually used the scope, he would have been garanteed a miss. BTW, nobody cares about you or your shooting skills. Try and research before posting.

      • oatwillie

        Then you, above all people should know that when firing on a downward trajectory , the bullet RISES, and unless compensated for will miss the target. The distances involved in the final shot from the 6th floor window (with a dicey unzeroed in scope) are formidable. I discussed this with the author of “A Sniper Looks at Daily Plaza”. He said he couldn’t guarantee any accuracy with even top equipment for this shot and I, a deer hunter have had this demonstrated to my disgust just once. Shoot at the heart and have the bullet fly right
        over the deer. I abandoned my 30-30 and now use a .243 and shoot from the ground which gives a flatter trajectory.

        Actually, it would have been the shot of the century if Oswald had HIT the target!

        • oatwillie

          As an addendum, read what a Parkland Hospital Doctor has to say about the wounds he saw. He was very experienced in treating gunshot wounds and has finally spoken about he saw in his book, “Conspiracy of Silence”. Head shot and throat entrance wound. In the autopsy, the track of the throat wound was not tracked.

      • oller

        sir, you are a typical apologist that is set up to serve as soon as some respected investigator like Peter Dale Scott is active. You are just confirming his thesis: it seem still to be important to suppress the truth in this case. But no wonder: there is a blood line all the way from Dealy Plaza 1963 to Washington DC 2015.
        As being a lawyer; my foremost interest has always been the evidence in the case. The most telling is the medical evidence. As pointed out above the Single Bullet Theory is an anomaly. The bullet that hit Kennedy in the back would have to be travelling upwards or at least horizontal to be able to exit in the throat. Funny enough; by making his obvious falsifications, Dale Myers, with the help of Peter Jenning´s soothing voice, contributes to the obvious cover-up. This animation was the one that opened my eyes for the false SBT. Those very pictures where Kennedy becomes a hunchback, a turtle and a giraffe at the same time are just too much. Interestingl enough; when you turn over to Dale Myers own home page you see something different. HIS OWN PICTURES SHOW THAT TTHE PONT OF ENTRY AND OF EXIT ARE LEVEL!
        Concerning the head shot: we have at least two dozens of professionals who in their line of duty, in different capacities, independently from one another; have testified – several of them to the Warren Commission – that there was a large gaping wound in the back of Kennedy´s head. The first person who saw it was Clint Hill and the last ones the embalmers who put Kennedy back into the coffin after the autopsy. Thereby it is proved that at least one shot came from the front.

        • oatwillie

          In Texas , the chain of evidence must not be broken. The fact that custody of Kennedy’s body was taken from the Texas medical examiner and the Texas Justice of the Peace for Dallas County at gunpoint, broke the chain of evidence. A federal crime had not been violated but a Texas crime of murder had, and Texas law demanded the autopsy be made in the State of Texas and probably in Dallas county. The accused passed a pariffen test in as much as no gunpowder was found on his face, only on his left hand. The evidence for Teppet’s murder is problematical also, in as much as shell casings were wrong for the accused’s pistol and the casings were not initialed showing chain of custody. No body can put that rifle in the accused’s hands and there were no fingerprints found on the rifle. Oswald probably would have walked, had he come to trial.

          • oatwillie

            Another piece of evidence never mentioned was that funeral home techniction who embalmed Kennedy’s body found very small pieces of glass in his face. There was a photo not seen by Warren Commission showing bullet hole in the Linclon limo’s windshield.

        You should really study all of the evidence and eye witness testimony before using such a simplistic argument. Saying the shot could be done ignores all of the medical, ballistic, sonal, and video evidence as well as the deliberate coverup of the event.

      • David Horace

        So, because someone (or you) could’ve done something, they did.

        • So, what are you saying? Oswald lone shooter? If so you don’t know guns, especially this one. Read and learn:://

          Not only was the Warren Commission unable to demonstrate that Oswald had committed the crime alone, but two important pieces of evidence showed that he had almost certainly not played any part in the shooting:

          the poor physical condition of the rifle

          and the absence of gunpowder residues on Oswald’s cheeks.

          The Condition of the Sixth–Floor Rifle

          The experts from the US Army and the FBI who had tested the rifle discovered that it was actually not usable in its original state:

          Shims had to be applied to the telescopic sight before the rifle could be aimed.1

          Even after the telescopic sight had been repaired, it proved unreliable and inaccurate.2

          The condition of both the bolt and the trigger pull meant that the rifle could not be aimed accurately.3

          The rifle discovered on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository could not have caused any of the wounds to Kennedy, Connally or Tague, except by accident.

          Oswald’s Paraffin Test

          A few hours after the assassination, Oswald underwent a test that was routinely carried out on those suspected of having fired a gun. Liquid paraffin wax was spread on his hands and his right cheek. When hardened, the paraffin wax would extract from deep in the pores of his skin any fine residues given off by the firing of a gun, even if he had washed his skin in the meantime.

          Barium and antimony, which are found in gunpowder residues, are also found in several common substances such as printing ink, which Oswald certainly had handled on the morning of the assassination. The presence of these substances is not sufficient evidence of having fired a gun, but their absence is sufficient evidence of having not fired a gun.

          In other words:

          Firing a gun would deposit barium and antimony on parts of the skin close to the gun.

          If barium and antimony were found on Oswald’s skin, they may have been deposited by the firing of a gun. But they may instead have been deposited by other means: for example, the handling of books.

          If barium and antimony were not found on Oswald’s skin, he almost certainly did not fire a gun.

          Three Tests Proved Oswald’s Innocence

          Test 1: Spectrographic Analysis

          Oswald’s paraffin casts were subjected to two analyses. Spectrographic analysis, the method normally used by the police, showed evidence of barium and antimony on Oswald’s hands, but not on his cheek.4

          Test 2: Neutron Activation Analysis on Oswald

          Spectrographic analysis was considered sufficiently reliable for criminal investigations, but in this case a more incisive test was also used. Neutron activation analysis, which is capable of identifying the presence of substances in quantities much too small to be captured by spectrographic analysis, also showed no incriminating quantities of residues on Oswald’s cheek.5The result was reported in an internal Warren Commission memo: “At best, the analysis shows that Oswald may have fired a pistol, although this is by no means certain. … There is no basis for concluding that he also fired a rifle.”6

          Test 3: Controlled Neutron Activation Analysis

          In order to check the validity of the neutron activation analysis of Oswald’s paraffin casts, a controlled test was made. Seven marksmen fired a rifle of the same type as that found on the sixth floor. The standard paraffin test was administered, and the paraffin casts were subjected to neutron activation analysis. All seven subjects showed substantial amounts of barium and antimony on their hands and, more importantly, on their cheeks.7

          The absence of significant quantities of residues on Oswald’s cheek meant that he almost certainly had not fired a rifle that day.

          Oswald’s Involvement in the Assassination

          Although Lee Oswald was strongly associated with the rifle and bullet shells that were discovered on the sixth floor of theTSBD, it is extremely unlikely that he fired that rifle on the day of the assassination. The only realistic conclusion is that the evidence was planted, and that he had been framed.

          • Susan Wilde

            Good summation William, but one thing (in case you have not read nor heard it). Almost 10 years ago the F.B.I. officially, publicly invalidated the future use of Neutron Activation Analysis with regards to the chemical composition of bullet lead.

      • cedarsagecatrina

        “Conspiracy theory” was a term coined by the CIA to discredit critics of the Warren Commission Report , and it has been used as a thought stopper ever since .
        “Passionate UFO believers” is by way of distraction . There is much that is unexplained about the UFO phenomenon and much to suggest the the government knows more than it is saying . That is not relevant to the JFK assassination being discussed here . As an attempt to kill two birds with one stone/one bullet, it fails as thoroughly as the lone nutter-single bullet theory .

      LYNDON JOHNSON HAD A MURDEROUS ATTITUDE TOWARDS ROBERT KENNEDY – “I’ll cut his throat if it’s the last thing I do.”

      Robert Caro describes the LBJ-RFK relationship post
      1960 Democratic convention, where RFK had moved heaven and earth attempting to keep LBJ off the 1960 Democratic ticket. Caro:

      John Connally, who during long days of conversation with this author was willing to answer almost any question put to him, no matter how delicate the topic, wouldn’t answer when asked what Johnson said about Robert Kennedy. When the author pressed him, he
      finally said flatly: “I am not going to tell you what he said about
      him.” During the months after the convention, when Johnson was closeted alone back in Texas with an old ally he would sometimes be asked about Robert Kennedy. He would reply with a gesture. Raising
      his big right hand, he would draw the side of it across the neck in a slowing, slitting movement. Sometimes that gesture would be his only reply; sometimes, as during a meeting with Ed Clark in Austin, he would say, as his hand moved across his neck, “I’ll cut his throat if it’s the last thing I do.” [Robert Caro, “The Passage of Power,” p. 140]

    In most of these wars, the U.S. was on the offense. Danios admits that some of the wars were defensive. However, Danios also leaves out covert CIA operations and other acts which could be considered war.

    Let’s update what’s happened since 2011:

    2012 – War on Terror in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Syria and Yemen

    2013 – War on Terror in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Syria and Yemen

    2014 – War on Terror in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Syria and Yemen; Civil War in Ukraine

    2015 – War on Terror in Somalia, Somalia, Syria and Yemen; Civil War in Ukraine

    So we can add 4 more years of war. That means that for 222 out of 239 years – or 93% of the time – America has been at war. (We can quibble with the exact numbers, but the high percentage of time that America has been at war is clear and unmistakable.)

    Indeed, most of the military operations launched since World War II have been launched by the U.S.

    And American military spending dwarfs the rest of the world put together.

    No wonder polls show that the world believes America is the number 1 threat to peace.

    I wonder how many of these ‘actions’ were started because of a ‘conspiracy’?

    Let’s be honest! America Has Been At War 93% of the Time – 222 Out of 239 Years – Since 1776

    It’s big business and if you try and say anything to stop it, you die, or disappear, or your labeled as a conspiracy nut. America is the #-1 terrorist country in the world. I think it’s time to change this terrible fact and start looking at peace as the answer for all mankind. Think about it. Wouldn’t your grandchildren be a lot happier?

    • saperetic

      It is the globalists who have been at war, and not just 93% of the time. It’s been 100% of the time. America has been a vassal of the globalists since 1783. You don’t sign a treaty of any kind if you demand and intend to establish absolute sovereignty only to have your capitol burned down 30 years later for not obeying the treaty, regardless of what the globalists’ basic skills/common core textbooks say. America is not a sovereign nation. It is not of the people. It is not by the people. It is not for the people. “It” doesn’t exist. America is a farce ran as a corporation. The only thing that exists is plutocratic hegemony. We are all to blame for accepting it if we have realized it and do nothing about it to inform others.

      • RobertM

        Exactly! It’s simplistic… LBJ had him killed, PERIOD!

        • james warren

          You may very well be right.

          I think sometimes those of us who are still wrestling with November, 1963 are like kids lying on their backs looking at the clouds in the sky and making our own animal shapes out of what we see. Likewise, I see the assassination clues as some sort of Byzantine puzzle that reveal a lot of truthful scenarios–sort of like “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” deal.

          Everyone looks at the assassination and sees something both different and plausible or truthful. There are so many connections between different people and events that we can use many different keys to open the lock.

        • Susan Wilde

          BINGO !

          Most persons are aware that JFK was seriously considering dropping LBJ from his 1964 presidential ticket, AND, that all 4 federal, on-going, criminal investigations that had been focused or co-focused on LBJ prior to Dallas, completely vanished sooner or later after JFK was eliminated in the LBJ-Connally Texas. (did you know that Connally was the manager of LBJ’s political campaigns?)

    The list of thoughtful and distinguished people who suspect that JFK was the victim of a conspiracy is long, indeed, but including Bobby Kennedy and Walter Sheridan on such a list is misleading. A former NSA investigator and FBI agent, Sheridan was the in-house Kennedy spook who posed as a journalist and went to New Orleans with NBC press credentials. There, he did everything he could to discredit and impede Jim Garrison’s investigation.

    Bobby himself was on the record as “standing by the Warren Commission.” In a letter to Earl Warren, written in August, 1964, he gave nothing less than his imprimatur to the Commission’s Report, declaring that he was aware of “no credible evidence to support the allegations that the assassination of President Kennedy was caused by a domestic or foreign conspiracy.” End of story. Bury Oswald, Ruby and the truth.

    It may be that both men secretly harbored doubts – or even knowledge of – a conspiracy. But if that is so, then what they did, what they said, and who they were would seem to place them among the founders of the cover-up.

    Kennedy apologists imagine that Bobby intended to undertake a new investigation of the assassination – once he was elected president. But there is little or no evidence of that. It seems to have been wishful thinking that was intended to explain away what might otherwise appear to have been expedience, cowardice or culpability. He was, after all, one of the most powerful political figures in the country: at once the Attorney General of the United States and head of a dynastic and beloved family. He had an entire generation on his side, and he betrayed it.

    • GAguilar


      I agree wholeheartedly with you about Walter Sheridan.

      But in the wake of David Talbot’s book “Brothers,” it seems pretty clear that Bobby Kennedy was convinced there’d been a conspiracy in his brother’s death. On the 50th anniversary of the assassination, the Boston Globe published an article entitled, “Robert F. Kennedy saw conspiracy in JFK’s assassination”

      And Talbot himself (in the Chicago Sun Times) laid out the case for Bobby being a skeptic.

      Bobby knew that he couldn’t really get to the bottom of his brother’s murder without the powers of the Presidency. How right he was!

      • Jim Hougan

        I’m not sure that we disagree. I think it’s likely that Bobby realized his brother was the victim of a conspiracy. But he chose – for whatever reason – not to help with its unraveling. As for Sheridan’s mission to New Orleans, we’re both of the opinion that he went there, under cover of “journalism,” to wreck the Garrison investigation. And yet, he was the Kennedys’ in-house spook and a key player on Bobby’s “Get Hoffa” squad. The question then becomes: why did Bobby want to destroy the Garrison investigation?

    Re: “Splat Power and the Head Shot”. Your claim is false concerning the bullet used in the “head shot” of the President. The bullet did not remain intact. It broke into a thousand pieces because it was a “fragmenting” bullet. This is why JFK’s brain was hidden from further investigation. The brain matter contained left over metal particles that would show up in an x-ray. Without a bullet, the Warren Commish could not determine what direction the shot came from.

    • oatwillie

      From a military bullet, no less!

      Robert, there are X-Ray’s available online (purportedly of JFK post-assassination), that DO show small metal bullet particles in a path through that X-Ray’d head.

    “apparently one without adverse consequences…” In a sense isn’t this sort of no cause and effect view of the world the very reason the lone nut thing keeps going? If you had said the U. S. is double-doomed because of the officials not crucifying proponents of lonenut upside down on the White House lawn then I guarantee the lonenut would end instantly. Double doom still comes because of the first assertion of lonenut. Cause and effect is inexorable. Given the arrival in Syria (uninvited) of Chemical Weapons troopers from Kentucky I’d say it won’t be long delayed. Have a nice day.

      Ahhhhhhh, “sap”, after one Zapruder frame, about 2″ forward movement of his head between Zapruder frames 312 and 313, his head and his entire upper torso, arms and hands are superfast propelled left and back. Transfer of momentum: In the head shot instance, transfer of momentum by a 2000 foot-per-second, or faster, bullet.

  • Susan Wilde

    Ms. Cranor is 100% incorrect on her (transparently-biased) point against FOXNEWS when she incorrectly stated that FOXNEWS, as a whole, is part of the lame-stream media that tries to promote the “lone nut” theory. In the recent 10 years there have been, at least, two FOXNEWS produced documentaries that have thoroughly questioned and debunked key segments of the “lone nut” theories. (Yes, Bill O’Reilly has flip-flopped since his pre-FOXNEWS days, and a few years ago he wrote another best-selling book that 99% promoted the “lone nut” theory, but, he is just a small part of the FOXNEWS that Cranor, incorrectly, lumped-together with the other lame-stream media that still try to get you and I to swallow the “lone nut” theories)

  • Susan Wilde

    Additionally, Ms. Cranor, hypocritically, liberally attempted to pull a shanigan of her own in her article when she shows the Dale Myers CAD-cartoon of JFK next to the 11-22-63 Jim Towner photo of JFK captured seconds before the shots. As evidenced by the limousine’s partially rolled-up chromed horizontal window frame (that was next to Nellie Connally) seen in the Jim Towner photo crop that Ms. Cranor supplied, in the Towner-Cranor version the partially rolled-up window’s chromed horizontal frame is tilted higher in front of JFK in the Towner-Cranor-supplied version, but, IN REALITY AND IN THE REAL JIM TOWNER PHOTO, that horizontal window frame is nearly perfectly horizontally flat and parallel to the street.

  • Susan Wilde

    There are 2 key things (among the many) that prove there was a conspiracy:

    #1, JFK first reacts to his first being hit at Zapruder frame 203 to 206 (just before he is hidden for 1-second by the roadway sign), when he snapped his head from facing hard/right to left/forward a superfast 85 degrees in less than one-sixth of a second and his waving hand superfast flipped-over almost 180 degrees, AT AN ELM STREET POINT MEASURED BY THE WARREN COMMISSION (itself) WHEN A LARGE TREE AND ITS BRANCHES AND LEAVES STILL HID JFK FROM THE TARGETING VIEW OF anyone IN THE, SUPPOSED, “lone nut” snipers lair.

    #2, the current Warren Commission-apologists shooting scenario claims a shot at/shortly after Zapruder frames 166 (when the large tree started to hide JFK they think the “lone nut” fired INTO the tree he knew was there!), then, the “magic bullet” was fired and hit at Zapruder frames 223/224 (even though JFK first reacts superfast at Z-203-206, AND, even though the Parkland Hospital employee who found the “magic” bullet testified that he found it on a stretcher that was NOT JFK’s nor Connally’s!), then a “lone nut”, 265′, moving away rightward head shot that hit at Z-312/313. UNFORTUNATELY for the commission-apologists the Warren Commission admitted in its report that over 83% (“five to one”, as Warren Commission commissioner & the fired-by-JFK former-CIA Director Allen Dulles documented for the record) of the Dealey Plaza witnesses (it choose to hear from) who testified they could hear 3 or MORE shots stated that the last 2 shots they could hear were bunched much CLOSER together than the first 2 shots they could hear. In the commission-apologists, current, en vogue, revised-again theory their 166-223-313 shots sequence has the last 2 shots 158% FURTHER APART than what the real witnesses told the commission.

    There is much more, but that is a really good start.

  • Unfortunately if you tell the truth in America, you’re either a ‘nutter’, ‘tin foil hat wearer’, ‘conspiracy nut’, ‘agent against the Country’, ‘whistle blower’, etc. It’s absurd to believe the ‘official account’ of anything these days, but the JFK and RFK murders were just that; murders! Release the files that are due out in 2017, which in itself is totally ridiculous. Same with the surveillance cameras at the Pentagon on 9/11. America is like looking at an organized crime film where the bad guy’s do whatever they want, and never have a problem with the “Justice System’. Corruption personified! It’s bad enough too go to a foreign country and kill their ‘President’, but to do the same thing inside your own country and get away with it for 52 some years is beyond barbaric. But that’s just the way it is in America!
