JFK Nephew to Dallas: Assassination Not Your Fault

While Dallas anguishes over marking the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination inAnthony Shriver IMG_6116 2013, the president’s nephew has a message for the city: Get over the collective angst, already. “The people here loved him,” Anthony Kennedy Shriver, the son of JFK’s sister Eunice and Sargent Shriver, said in Dallas Saturday. “I spoke with a man who saw him 20 minutes before he died, and he said he still gets chills, thinking about that day. It’s not the fault of the people of Dallas.

“What the community did with the [Sixth Floor Museum] was fantastic,” Shriver (pictured in photo by Jeanne Prejean) went on.  “I took my daughter and my mom there a couple of years before she died. She was really moved by it. … [The assassination] was not the city’s fault … just as I’m not responsible if one of my family members … is a drug addict; that’s not a reflection on me. Nobody in my family has ever spoken in anything but a loving way about the people of Dallas.”

Shriver, who was in town raising money for his Best Buddies nonprofit for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, has often been mentioned as a potential Democratic candidate for governor of Florida, where he lives. He said he prays every day and is “open” to the possibility of running in 2014, if that turns out to be God’s plan for him.

  1. It’s always been a great credit to propagandists that “right-wing” Dallas gets the blame for JFK’s Death, when it was a left-wing communist.

  2. He looks like he’s about to start talking to the Pharaoh.

    And the Pharaoh is a Good Man. I can tell you, he’s a Good Man.

  3. To Obama’s Seat
    You are correct that a left winger shot JFK. However, as one who was here, the hatred for the president and the political vitriol that was pervasive in Dallas created an atmosphere about which no one should have been or still be proud. Hitting elected dignitaries with signs and spitting on them was accepted in many circles. It was an embarassing time.

  4. As a proud native of Dallas I am glad to hear this. The assassination is one of my first vivid memories as a child.

  5. To: Lee
    “Hitting elected dignitaries with signs and spitting on them” sounds appropriate for a large percentage of today’s elected “leaders” in this country.

    The LBJ-CIA Assassination of JFK

    Lyndon Johnson made a dirty deal with CIA Republicans to murder John Kennedy in the 1963 Coup d’Etat. (People like Clint Murchison Sr., H.L. Hunt, D.H. Byrd, Nelson Rockefeller, David Rockefeller, top Nelson Rockefeller aide Henry Kissinger, McGeorge Bundy, George Herbert Walker Bush, Gen. Edward Lansdale (CIA) and Gen. Charles Willoughby all are excellent candidates for elite sponsorship.) Lyndon Johnson and Allen Dulles may very well have been co-CEOs of the JFK assassination; with the CIA in charge of the killing of JFK, and Lyndon Johnson and (his close friend and neighbor of 19 years in Washington, DC) FBI director J. Edgar Hoover in charge of the cover up.

    Clint Murchison, Sr — as much as H.L. Hunt — was a key player in the JFK assassination because of his close ties to the inner core of US intelligence (Allen Dulles, Nelson Rockefeller, John J. McCloy), close ties to Lyndon Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI, bankers Rockefellers; Murchison was even friends with key Kennedy-hater mafia godfather Carlos Marcellos of New Orleans. Not only that, Murchison, Sr. was a patient and partner of Dr. Alton Oschner, the former president of the American Cancer Society and who ran covert cancer research for the CIA. Oschner, likewise was a Kennedy-hater. John Simkin: “One of Ochsner’s friends described him as being ‘like a fundamentalist preacher in the sense that the fight against communism was the only subject that he would talk about, or even allow you to talk about, in his presence.”
    When JFK was slaughtered, Russia’s Khrushchev was literally crying, fearing nuclear war. Cuba’s Castro worried and feared an US invasion and gave an impressive speech the next day deconstructing the CIA’s deception provocation for war. Meanwhile at Clint Murchison’s home, their family maid May Newman describes the scene: “The mood in the Murchison family home was very joyous and happy. For a whole week after like champagne and caviar flowed, every day of the week. But I was the only one in that household at that time that felt any grief for his assassination.”
    The Warren Commission should have really been called the “Allen Dulles Commission” because he controlled it and made it the farce that it was. Dulles was probably an elite sponsor (i.e. murderer), as well as certainly Lyndon Johnson. The 3 hardcore cover up artists on the Warren Commission were the 3 Council on Foreign Relations members: Allen Dulles (president CFR 1946-50), John J. McCloy (then chairman of the CFR 1953-1970) and Gerald Ford (CFR member, later president). John J. McCloy was a Rockefeller man, former head of Chase Manhattan bank, and very deep US intelligence since the OSS days. John J. McCloy’s nickname was “Chairman of the American Establishment,” and he mixed at the highest levels of business, intelligence and he was close to the Kennedy-hating Texas business elite. Cover up artist Gerald Ford was secretly reporting to Hoover and the FBI what the Warren Commission was doing. In 1970, Newsweek called Gerald Ford the “CIA’s best friend in Congress.” The CFR especially 40 years ago, was heavily Rockefeller influenced and it top players were deep CIA.

    The CIA has been called the military wing of the CFR; and actually that is not too far from the truth. The CFR was in its heyday from 1950-1990.

    Here is an absolutely spectacular article why the National Security State murdered John Kennedy: http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig10/marshall10.1.html John Kennedy was despised by and did not control his CIA nor his Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    Lyndon Johnson’s reasons to murder were out of his deep desperation and fear of what would become of him after his imminent expulsion from the 1964 Democratic ticket and his fears of going to jail over the exploding Bobby Baker scandal. LIFE magazine, being fed extremely damaging info by Robert Kennedy, was set to run an expose on Lyndon Johnson’s corruption that would blow him out of the water once and for all (Dec. 6th issue, but due to be printed and mailed on 11/29/63: source James Wagenvoord who worked at LIFE then). Bobby Baker was the protégé of a wildly corrupt LBJ in the Senate; Lyndon Johnson was like both a dad and a big brother to Bobby Baker (who named two of his children after LBJ: Lynda and Lyndon). Both Lyndon Johnson and Bobby Baker were receiving tremendous amounts of under-the-table money while Johnson was running the Senate. The Kennedys and LIFE Magazine were literally days away from politically executing Lyndon Johnson with the rope of the unraveling Bobby Baker scandal. After vaporizing the despised Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy was going to replace LBJ most likely with Terry Sanford of North Carolina or possibly his good friend George Smathers of Florida as VP on the 1964 Democratic ticket.

    The Kennedys and Lyndon Johnson were having a sub rosa fight: Jack and Robert Kennedy brought knives to the battle and Lyndon Johnson brought guns and it was settled on 11/22/63 at 12:30 PM in Dallas.

    Lately, I have been studying the role of McGeorge Bundy, the National Security Advisor for JFK and Henry Cabot Lodge, JFK’s insubordinate ambassador to Vietnam who Kennedy was planning to fire on Monday, 11/25/63. It is probable that both McGeorge Bundy and Henry Cabot Lodge were involved some way with the JFK assassination. McGeorge Bundy, astonishingly, was already drafting sharp escalations to JFK’s Vietnam policy NSAM 273 (which JFK would not have approved) on 11/21/63, the night before the 1963 Coup d’Etat! McGeorge Bundy was also assuring others very quickly on 11/22/63 that there was no conspiracy to kill JFK, at a time when it was impossible for him (or anyone) to credibly be saying that. Bundy later ran the Ford Foundation from 1966-1979.

    JFK’s Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, who ran the Rockefeller Foundation from 1952-1961, and was also a hawk on Vietnam, is another one who merits close scrutiny in the Coup of 1963. Kennedy had appointed Rusk because it was unlikely that the Senate would confirm JFK’s first choice J. William Fulbright, who later became a prominent opponent of the Vietnam War. After the 1963 Coup d’Etat, Rusk lasted through all the blood and guts of Vietnam and all the way through Jan., 1969, as Johnson’s Secretary of State. Walt Rostow (CFR), another Vietnam hawk, replaced McGeorge Bundy (CFR) as National Security Advisor in 1966. The CFR and the Rockefellers, not John Kennedy, lusted for the Vietnam War.

    The midlevel murderers (field operations) of JFK would include CIA guys like Richard Helms, James Angleton, David Morales, William King Harvey, E. Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis, David Atlee Phillips and perhaps Cord Meyer. Deputy Harry Weatherford is a good candidate to have been on the Records Building as a sniper. Influential mobster Johnny Roselli was especially close friends with the CIA’s William King Harvey, a rabid Kennedy hater. The most likely mafia godfathers involved would be Carlos Marcello and Santo Trafficante, particularly in the Jack Ruby murder of Oswald and perhaps in the JFK Assassination as well and other murders in the post assassination cover up.

    We now know Lyndon Johnson was far worse than he is presented in current biographies. Far beyond ballot stuffing, bribery, massive under-the-table kickbacks, and being a consummate and pathological liar, Lyndon Johnson was murdering a lot of people in Texas to cover up his eye popping corruption. A prime example is the murder of US agricultural official Henry Marshall in June, 1961, and who then Vice President Lyndon Johnson arranged to have murdered. In the 1980’s, Billie Sol Estes, a close and corrupt partner of LBJ, began confessing to the murders that he, Lyndon Johnson, Cliff Carter and LBJ’s personal hit man Malcolm Wallace committed. Lyndon Johnson, a manic depressive — and at times a barely functioning psychopath – murdered perhaps 10-20 people to avoid exposure before he got his knife wet with John Kennedy’s blood.

    Lyndon Johnson and Sam Rayburn, taking advantage of Hoover’s dossier on JFK, used sexual blackmail and other threats on John Kennedy on the night of July 13th at the 1960 Democratic convention in Los Angeles in order to force Kennedy to put LBJ on the ticket. Johnson was not on JFK’s short list for VP; he was not on the long list. LBJ was not on the VP list — period. Johnson made a hostile take over of the vice presidential slot.

    John Kennedy told his close friend Hy Raskin: “You know we had never considered Lyndon, but I was left with no choice. He and Sam Rayburn made it damn clear to me that Lyndon had to be the candidate. Those bastards were trying to frame me. They threatened me with problems and I don’t need more problems. I’m going to have enough problems with Nixon.” Evelyn Lincoln, JFK’s secretary for 11+ years, also confirms that Lyndon Johnson used sexual blackmail combined with other threats to force JFK to put LBJ on the 1960 Democratic ticket.

    My current thinking on US intelligence agent Lee Harvey Oswald is that he was indeed involved in the JFK assassination, but he was a patsy who shot NO ONE that day, neither John Kennedy nor Officer J.D. Tippit. Both murders were complete frame jobs. Oswald was a fake defector to Russia and his behavior in New Orleans 1963 was all about Oswald’s sheep dipping as he passed out pro-Castro flyers and pretended to be a “pro-Castro Marxist.” Meanwhile Oswald was working in concert in New Orleans with folks like David Ferrie and Guy Bannister whose politics were the equivalent of a 1960’s Strom Thurmond or Jesse Helms. Oswald’s fake public persona as a “pro-Casto Marxist” meant that he was an ideal pick as a patsy and his likely knowledge of and/or participation in the JFK Assassination meant that he had to be murdered quickly. The folks who killed Oswald wanted a “dead Red” not a “talking head.” The JFK assassination was a deception provocation intended to facilitate a US military invasion of Cuba. It was that bad and ugly. A US invasion of Cuba might have provoked a broader war with Russia and from the point of view of some like Air Force General Curtis LeMay that was fine because, astoundingly, he wanted to wage and “win” a nuclear WWIII. Curtis LeMay hated Kennedy so much that a child could have recruited him into a plot to kill Kennedy. LeMay told Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis that he was an appeaser equivalent to Neville Chamberlain for not bombing Cuba.

    That was the pool of sharks John Kennedy was swimming in: a desperate and psychopathic serial killer Vice-President Lyndon Johnson who was literally murdering a string of people down in Texas and who was waging a sub rosa war with the Kennedys, an out-of-control CIA hell bent on a coup; an FBI director Hoover who detested JFK and who was close friends and neighbors with LBJ, and a JCS military brass who wanted to invade Cuba, wage the war in Vietnam, and Curtis LeMay who, according to Robert McNamara, wanted to wage full scale nuclear war with Russia, giving them the “Sunday punch” while the USA still had first strike capability. Add to that the white hot mafia hatred that Robert Kennedy was engendering with his prosecutions. This same mafia had been working hand in glove with their friends the CIA to take out Castro in Cuba. Think of these enemies of JFK as fasces: “a bundle of wooden sticks with an axe blade emerging from the center, which is an image that traditionally symbolizes summary power and jurisdiction, and/or strength through unity.”

    The elite domestic murderers of JFK did it for many reasons, both personal and ideological. At the core it was Lyndon Johnson, the CIA, and the shadow government of Texas oil barons and the Rockefellers. It was not either/or the Western “Cowboys” or the Eastern “Yankees” who murdered John Kennedy: it was the elites of both.

    Most folks don’t know just how close Lyndon Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover were both personally and physically. For 19 years LBJ and Hoover lived literally 3 houses down and across the street, about 57 yards, in Washington, D.C. They often had Sunday brunch together at the Johnsons with other power brokers such as Sen. Richard Russell and House Speaker Sam Rayburn, both LBJ mentors. LBJ and Hoover were also extremely close to the Texas oil barons such as Clint Murchison, Sr. and H.L. Hunt who have been implicated in the JFK assassination.

    I always want to learn and I am always willing to change my mind. Two excellent books to read on the JFK assassination are 1) LBJ: Mastermind of JFK’s Assassination (2010) by Phillip Nelson http://www.lbj-themastermind.com/ and 2) JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why it Matters (2008) by James Douglass. Review: http://www.ctka.net/2008/jfk_unspeakable.html I also highly recommend 3) Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years by David Talbot 4) The Dark Side of Camelot by Seymour Hersh 5) Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty by Russ Baker.

    Richard Nixon knew the dirty truth about the JFK assassination, but I do not think he was directly involved. In fact, when Nixon was under intense Watergate pressure, his firewall strategy as recorded on the “smoking gun tape” (recorded 6/23/72) was to ominously say don’t investigate me because it you do “the President believes that this is going to open up the whole Bay of Pigs thing again” — an obvious reference to the JFK assassination. Nixon’s aide Dean Burch said that when George Herbert Walker Bush heard that “He broke out in assholes and shit himself to death.” GHW Bush was probably an elite planner of the JFK assassination.

    Howard Baker once asked Nixon, “What do you know about the Kennedy assassination?” Nixon replied “You don’t want to know.” (Source: Don Hewett, Kennedy Library Oral History.)

    Lyndon Johnson himself told Madeleine Duncan Brown on the night of 12/31/63 that it was Texas oil barons and “renegade intelligence bastards” who murdered John Kennedy. LBJ and Madeleine had a son Steven Mark in 1950. (Source: Madeleine Brown.)

    Edgar Hoover who along with LBJ was the primary architect of the cover up, told Billy Byars, Jr.: “If I told you what I really know, it would be very dangerous to the country. Our whole political system could be disrupted.” Hoover was responding to a question of whether Oswald really shot JFK. (Source: Billy Byars, Jr.)

    Without a doubt, top honors for being biggest source for disinformation on the Coup of 1963 has been the NY Times whose reporting on the JFK assassination has been the equivalent of 1950’s Soviet style propaganda, i.e. completely fraudulent and parroting the 1960’s fantastic whoppers of LBJ, FBI, CIA and the Warren Commission. CBS News, ABC News, the Washington Post and the former LIFE magazine and CIA assets in other major media have been equally bad. LIFE Magazine actually bought the rights to the Zapruder film early on and never showed it once to the American people in video form., which would have revealed the incriminating “back and to the left” head snap of John Kennedy, all but proving a kill shot from the Grassy Knoll (grassy knoll shooting area being an extremely close 33 yards away from JFK). Finally, when American hero Robert Groden showed the Zapruder film on Geraldo on ABC in 1975, millions of Americans knew without a doubt what a sham the Warren Commission was.

    After he murdered John Kennedy and assumed the presidency, Lyndon Johnson gave over his Administration to the Council on Foreign Relations, both in regards to domestic and foreign policy. NSA chief McGeorge Bundy in particular immediately assumed a lot of power over LBJ. The CFR, the CIA, the Rockefellers, the JCS, and the military contractors wanted the Vietnam War. It is extremely significant that in spring, 1968, after LBJ had withdrawn from the presidential race, Democrat Lyndon Johnson secretly supported Republican Nelson Rockefeller for president. LBJ wanted someone who could stop Robert Kennedy, and more importantly, who would continue the cover up of the 1963 Coup d’Etat. Nelson Rockefeller personified the CFR, CIA and Eastern Establishment and I think he was a sponsor of the JFK assassination. Note: Rockefeller did not support fellow Republican Barry Goldwater in his 1964 race against Johnson.

    A special word about the Council on Relations role in the 1963 Coup d’Etat and cover up: no other organization has been more responsible for the murder and cover up of John Kennedy than the CFR. Elite CFR members such as Allen Dulles, Nelson Rockefeller, George Herbert Walker Bush and McGeorge Bundy were probably sponsors of the JFK assassination. Certainly leadership CFR members such as Allen Dulles, John J. McCloy, and Gerald Ford played the most critical roles in the Warren Commission farce. Add in cover up roles played by McGeorge Bundy (CFR/CIA), Nelson Rockefeller (CFR/CIA), Henry Kissinger (CFR/CIA), Richard Helms (CFR/CIA), William Colby (CFR/CIA), Nicholas Katzenbach (CFR), Jack Valenti (CFR), Bill Moyers (CFR), Henry Luce (CFR), Clair Boothe Luce (CFR), William Coleman (CFR) James Reston NY Times (CFR), Anthony Lewis NY Times (CFR), William F. Buckley (CFR/CIA), Walter Cronkite CBS (CFR), Dan Rather CBS (CFR), Bob Schieffer CBS (CFR), Peter Jennings ABC (CFR), Daniel Schorr (CFR), Arthur Ochs Sulzberger NY Times (CFR), Michael Eisner Disney (CFR), Harrison Salisbury NY Times (CFR), Kenneth Gilmore Readers’ Digest (CFR), Tom Braden (CFR/CIA), Stephen Rosenfeld Washington Post (CFR), Bobbie Ray Inman (CFR/CIA), Arnold de Borchgrave (CFR), Donald Rumsfeld (CFR), Rupert Murdoch FOX (CFR), John McCain (CFR), Robert Gates CIA (CFR)… the list is almost endless. Note two things: 1) they are the key establishment players of BOTH major political parties spanning decades 2) their power and influence is directly proportional to the fantastic whoppers they tell about in the 1963 Coup d’Etat. For the older CFR members it is a case of PARTICIPATION and COVER UP in the JFK assassination. For the younger ones such as Bill Clinton (CFR), Douglas G. Brinkley (CFR), George Will (CFR/ABC), Charles Krauthammer (CFR/FOX), Bill Kristol (CFR/FOX), David Gergen (CFR), John Segenthaler (CFR), Frank Sesno (CFR), Evan Thomas (CFR), Michael Beschloss (CFR), Stephen M. Walt (CFR), George Stephanopolous (CFR/ABC), Jonathan Alter (CFR), Evan Thomas (CFR), Brian Williams (CFR/NBC), Daniel Pipes (CFR), Michael Gerson (CFR) it is a case of WILLFUL IGNORANCE as they still push the Big Lie. Note: Chris Matthews of Hardball, another willfully ignorant man, is close friends with Richard Haass, current president of CFR. I have never seen highly acclaimed political guru Michael Barone, a Bilderberger attendee, ever say anything credible on the JFK assassination.

    Question: do we really expect the CFR to admit that some of its elite members slaughtered John Kennedy and many more played integral roles in the cover up? No, but it is important to highlight that the Council on Foreign Relations has stunk up the place with tremendous amounts of radioactive horse manure relating to the 1963 Coup d’Etat.

    The 1963 Coup d’Etat was very similar to the 1992 election between George Herbert Walker Bush, Ross Perot and Bill Clinton. In 1963, there was a Texas Vice President, a desperate and dangerous Lyndon Johnson – supported by the CFR, the intelligence agencies, military contractors and the oil industry – who feared exposure of his criminality and was on the verge of political and personal annihilation. So Lyndon Johnson used the CIA to murder his political rival John Kennedy.

    In the 1992, there was a Texas President, a desperate and dangerous George Herbert Walker Bush, supported by the CFR, the intelligence agencies, military contractors and the oil industry – who feared exposure of his criminality and was on the verge of political and personal annihilation. Ross Perot was well aware of the gargantuan Bush/Clinton/CIA drug smuggling of the 1980’s. So George Herbert Walker Bush used elite CIA “Pegasus” assassins to threaten to murder Ross Perot. GHW Bush feared what Perot, a self-funded (and therefore uncontrollable) billionaire might do in office. Bush, like LBJ 29 years before, faced both political and potentially personal annihilation if an untainted Ross Perot were elected.

    Ross Perot was leading in a Time/CNN poll in June, 1992, with 37% to 24% Clinton, 24% Bush. On July 16, 1992, Ross Perot, a billionaire who could self-fund and was leading in the polls significantly, QUIT the presidential race because he feared that a desperate George Herbert Walker Bush might literally assassinate him. Google “Chip Tatum Pegasus” and read about the elite CIA assassin who quit rather than follow the orders of George Herbert Walker Bush and neutralize Ross Perot:
    http://whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/MENA/TATUM/tatum.html An incensed Perot later got back in the race only to ensure the election of Bill Clinton.

    I think that George Herbert Walker Bush (CIA/CFR) became a made man with the JFK assassination in 1963. One of the first things the Bill Clinton (CIA/CFR) did after he got elected in 1992 was to ask Webb Hubbell at Justice to find out who really killed John Kennedy. Bill Clinton is a coward; he is good friends with GHW Bush today and Clinton today says he thinks a lone nut killed Kennedy – something he surely does not believe.

    The Discovery Channel has put out some incredibly bogus, poorly done disinfo presentations such as Inside the Target Car. Any MSM site that features Vincent Bugliosi, Gerald Posner, especially Hugh Aynesworth, Edward Jay Epstein, Gus Russo, Michael Shermer, Dale Meyers, Max Holland, Dave Perry or Gary Mack prominently and positively is giving you counterfeit money. Edward Epstein and Gerald Posner in particular are thought by many credible JFK researchers to be CIA propagandists. If you google “JFK assassination” the first 2 links that come up are lone nutter controlled disinfo sites: 1) Wikipedia 2) John McAdam’s site. John McAdams is a very lowly regarded man who basically controls JFK related content on Wikipedia as well as his own site. Both Wikipedia and the NY Times are both tremendously dishonest sources for information relating to the 1963 Coup d’Etat. Finally, another major source of disinformation on the Coup of 1963 is the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas, which blithely recycles the shredded vapors of the Warren Commission, as if it had an ounce of truth in it. Gary Mack, the curator of the Sixth Floor Museum, simply does not have credibility on the JFK assassination.

    A special note on Wikipedia: any entry related to the JFK assassination or US intelligence agent Lee Harvey Oswald is locked down to prevent editing by the public. Wiki founder Jimmy Wales has a fondness for governmental fairy tales and JFK experts are prevented from editing entries on the site.

    In the near future there are going to be efforts by both Tom Hanks (HBO series) and Leonardo DiCaprio (a movie Legacy of Secrecy) to take on the JFK assassination. Sadly, these are both going to be disinformation efforts; the ONLY legitimate take on the JFK assassination is that it was a full blown domestic coup d’etat. Tom Hanks is a clueless lone nutter.

    Legacy of Secrecy, produced by Warner Brothers, is a deeply flawed attempt to blame the JFK assassination on “the mob only,” leaving out Lyndon Johnson, the National Security State and the shadow government of Texas oil barons and Rockefellers. Courtenay Lynda Valenti, an executive vice president of production at Warner Brothers,
    is the biological daughter (born in 1963) of Lyndon Johnson and Mary Margaret Valenti. Mary Margaret Valenti, a Texas beauty, had been a secretary/mistress of Lyndon Johnson and it is believed that Jack Valenti was letting his “wife” sleep with Lyndon Johnson. Back in the 1960’s Courtenay Lynda Valenti was known as the “baby in Lyndon Johnson’s White House” and was often referred to by LBJ as “Lynda” and “his little heartbeat.” As an adult, Courtenay Lynda Valenti is now producing some major disinformation on the 1963 Coup d’Etat: Legacy of Secrecy. Her brother John “Lyndon” Valenti (namesake only of LBJ) also works at Warner Brothers. Jack Valenti, her “dad,” issued a 7-page statement in 1992 denouncing Oliver Stone’s JFK as “a propaganda masterpiece and equally a hoax.”

    Similar to Jack Valenti, another sycophant of Lyndon Johnson is biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin who met Johnson in 1967 at age 23 (LBJ, age 58). Sally Quinn, in a revealing article in the Wash Post (8/24/75), entitled “A Tale of Hearts and Minds,” wrote that Doris said LBJ “pressed me very hard sexually the first year,” that he courted her aggressively, then he asked her to marry him, that he was jealous of other men in her life.” Doris, after spending much face time with LBJ, ghost wrote LBJ’s presidential autobiography Vantage Point and later a biography on him which, no surprise, did not include any references to Johnson’s pivotal role in the JFK assassination. Doris has all but admitted that she was having sex with Johnson.

    As for videos, I highly recommend going to You Tube and watching the extremely important The Men Who Killed Kennedy – (episodes 7, 8, and 9). Much of these episodes focus on the role of Lyndon Johnson in the 1963 Coup d’Etat and they were BANNED from the History Channel because they were so accurate. LBJ aide Jack Valenti (CFR) organized a suppression campaign on the videos along with Lady Bird Johnson, Warren Commission con man Gerald Ford (CFR), Jimmy Carter (CFR) and Bill Moyers (CFR). Also, on You Tube watch the spectacular “Evidence of Revision” and Jesse Ventura’s 2010 Conspiracy Theory show on the JFK assassination (You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHUKPXR5TbQ ). In addition, I recommend JFK the movie by Oliver Stone, director’s cut. Oliver Stone, despite immense criticism in the MSM by CIA assets, pretty much nailed the JFK assassination. It was a full blown Coup d’Etat by Lyndon Johnson, the CIA and key elements of the U.S. military.

  8. Robert Morrow is mainly correct, but most people won’t read the full article-length material he posted. Kennedy was not killed by a “left-wing communist” he was killed by a CIA coup. The CIA assassination of president Kennedy is the authoritarian door that was slammed in the US public’s face in 1963 and is the barrier that has kept the US public from democratic control of its government ever since. The Kennedys should be raging against what CIA did to JFK instead of offering politically-correct soft remarks that keep them in the same status quo that killed him. Time for the people of the US to answer the challenge once and for all. You can pretty much ignore Texas opinions. They’re embarrassing. CIA killed Kennedy there for a reason you know…

  9. There is a living man who, in my humble opinion, has been shown, with much concrete evidence to show, to have been the mafia/CIA hitman pictured nearest the camera behind the picket fence on the grassy knoll in the Mary Ann Moorman Polaroid photograph taken 1/6th of a second after the fatal shot was fired, along with at least one other shot about a half second later. Both shots are easily seen in the chrome around the front windshield of the limousine on the passenger’s (Roy Kellerman’s) side in the Zapruder film. The body reactions of President Kennedy and Governor Connoly match up precisely with the reflections of the flashes from the two shots. With where the limousine was at the time those shots were fired, there is no way that they could have emanated from any building on any floor from behind.

    The great enhancements of the Moorman Polaroid photo show the curved handle of a large pistol type weapon, with the handle still over the fence when the shooter tried to quickly take the gun back over the fence
    by grabbing the stock of the gun with his left hand, and just above the handle with his right hand. His arm is still over the fence and is plainly seen.

    A good dvd called “The Grassy Knoll” by Wim Dankbaar and two other producers, explains exactly how the shooting occured and James Earl Files gives the names of other Chicago mob, as well as CIA and Pentagon figures whom he could not have known the names of had he not been where he said he was, both in the weeks and several months before the Kennedy hit, as well as during and afterward.

    He did not seek attention from investigative sources, but became known to them, after he committed earlier crimes for which police and FBI authorities had been searching for him, and in one case had arrested him, but he was not tried for because another man had refused to give evidence against him,

    The bullet shell discovered by Mr. Rademacher and his son in 1987 was of a type which the military and government agencies had used as experimental ammunition and such a bullet shell was found, reported to police and others in Dallas, and then packed away with a photo of the bullet shell in the files of a Dallas private investigative firm. Files was later told about the bullet shell find, but told investigators one really interesting fact about the shell. If they had found the one from the bullet Files fired, it would have his teeth marks in it near the open end. The marks which no one knew the meaning of or where they came from, all of a sudden had a reason for being there. Five orthodontic scientists identified the indentations as having been caused by human teeth,

    The other piece of evidence that mitigates in favor of James Files’ story is that the CIA has done all in it’s power to obfuscate Files’ story. It hits, apparently, a bit too close to home for them. They have tried to say that a little dash mark on the closed end of the shell means it could not have been fired when the JFK assassination occured, The question then is, since they are saying that it had to have been fired AFTER 1971, then when did such a shooting occur in the same Dealey Plaza where Kennedy was shot? Why would a post 1971 bullet shell be found anywhere near Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas? Army and other branches of the military use experimental ammo all the time, before it’s use is expanded to wider military use. The XP-100 Remington gun was in use at that time and could be used with modified bullets,

    See the dvd, The Grassy Knoll. it is an eye opener when it comes to at least the man whom the Z film and Moorman photograph say fired the deadly shot into Kennedy’s right, front temple above his right eye.

  10. Files knew and knows yet, though he is 70 years old this year, the names of Ed Landsdale and William King Harvey, and David Atlee Phillips, as well as Leo Marcanotherieri, and Charles Nicoletti, people he knew, but did not know they had met at the Grace Ranch in Arizona, owned by another gangster whose name I can’t seem to recall, but did not know Chauncey Marvin Holt who had the fake identifications for the people on the Grassy Knoll and for Lee Harvey Oswald whom James Files thought of as someone the CIA had chosen to plant evidence in the Book Depository.

    When, with the Kennedy assassination, the CIA tries to discredit someone who was discovered, not who tried to
    obviate himself, one knows that it is likely because the investigation by Chicago special agents of the FBI who later retire and dedicate themselves to finding the truth about the JFK murder has finally struck some pay dirt.

    Files also knew, through another Florida CIA Cuban exile high level trainer named Ted Shackley, a George H. W, Bush. He was part and parcel of Operation 40 and Operation Mongoose. Files knew and twice worked with Lee Harvey Oswald while Oswald was in New Orleans pretending to run guns to the anti-Castro Cuban training camps in Louisiana and Florida. Oswald came to the hotel in Mesquite, Texas, near Dallas, and pretended to
    help Files by driving and helping with test target practice of the guns Files and Nicoletti would use in just their
    part of the assassination. James Files said there were others on the knoll, but he did not know them.
