47th Anniversary of JFK’s assassination overlooked by the media

The 35th President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated on 22nd November, 1963 while on diplomatic business in Dallas, Texas.  Sat in the back of the presidential limousine with his wife Jackie, he was shot first in the back and was killed by a decisive shot to the head.

Lee Harvey Oswald was accused of killing Kennedy but he too was shot dead by Jack Ruby just two days later, before a trial could be set up.

Many questions have hung around the neck of the Kennedy assassination and the nation is very strongly divided as to whether Oswald was a lone gun man with a vendetta against the president, or that he was a stooge put in place to cover up an inside job.

Comedian and political commentator Bill Hicks often talked of the JFK assassination, in particular the evidence given to “convince” the public that Oswald fired from a sniper’s nest on the sixth floor of the school book repository (now the famous JFK Assassination Museum).  He visited the museum himself and was incredulous at what he saw.

“They have the window set up to look exactly like it did on that day, and it’s really accurate you know, because Oswald’s not in it,”  quips Hicks, “it’s true, it’s called the sniper’s nest, it’s glassed in, it’s got the boxes sitting there and you can’t actually get to the window itself.”

“The reason they did that of course is they didn’t want thousands of American tourists getting there each year going – YOU CAN’T SEE THE ******* ROAD!”

The somnambulant public

Somnambulism; a condition also known as sleep walking.  Sufferers are able to act as if awake, often carrying out normal everyday tasks despite being completely unconscious.  One woman sent a very coherent invitation to friend via email and had no recollection of the event – a common symptom of somnambulism.  The activities carried out while sleep walking can be very dangerous and cases have included driving, cooking, writing, violent gestures and even homicide.

It seems odd that the media aren’t jumping on the JFK story today as his life and death has captured the American public’s attention for over fifty years now.  Perhaps the somnambulant public has forgotten what it means to question anything, especially how the evidence – both circumstantial and scientific – stacks strongly against the Lee Harvey Oswald story.  But then again, the media has put them to sleep.

The only real solution is to look at the evidence yourself and make your own mind up but with so many people disputing the spin from media and officials at the time of his death, it’s hard to ignore the possibility that John F. Kennedy was indeed murdered by a government insider.

What do you think?  Was it an inside job or was Oswald definitely guilty?  Please let us know by leaving a comment.

  4. Idiot, you can not only “see” Dealey Plaza clearly and easily from the 6th floor window of what is now a museum – but even someone like me, a totally inexperienced markswoman – could handily shoot someone traveling 10-15 mph in an open car at that close range. I was just there this past Friday for the first time ever, and seeing it with my own eyes has now cleared all doubt forever. Oswald was the lone gunman who killed Kennedy, period. There were no other shooters there that day. The only conspiracy mystery is who hired Oswald??

  5. Hey Nancy,

    A little science lesson for you. The sixth floor window in which Oswald allegedly set up was BEHIND the car when the shots were fired.

    So, Kennedy’s entry wounds were at the front of his body. Now, I’m no ballistics expert but unless the bullets bounced off the car wind shield and deflected into him, I’d say there’s a strong chance that somebody was lying about his murder.

    Plus, from six floors up the entry and exit wounds would be steep, which they were not.

    Did you stand in the window and look down the road to where he was shot?

    Basically, do the science yourself and you’ll see there’s no way on earth Oswald managed that shot from where he was.

  6. Who actually shot JFK is one of the more unanswerable questions surrounding the assassination.
    The better and more eminently answerable questions are, why was he murdered and who stood to benefit.
    The answers to many of the questions surrounding the JFK hit are not to be found in Dealy Plaza, but in the events and decisions that JFK made during his presidency.
    For a fine explanation of that read “JFK and Vietnam”
    by John Newman.
    Also probably the best books on the behind the scenes manipulation of Oswald is “The man who knew too much”
    by Dick Russell.
    And of course for those who have looked seriously into this
    there is Peter Dale Scott’s book “Deep Politics and the death of JFK.” Read just those 3 books and you will by no means have all the answers to the JFK murder,
    but you will know for a fact that Oswald was telling the truth
    when he said he was just a patsy. You will also come to see that the desire for war in vietnam was so strong in certain quarters that murdering the president was a necessary act.

  8. With the issuance of the final report of the House Select Committee on Assassinations in 1976, it has been the official position of the US Government that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone and that there was, in fact, a conspiracy to murder Kennedy.

    Check it out.

  9. yes Mike you are correct.
    The House Assassination committee’s final report concluded that Kennedy was killed ” probably as a result of a conspiracy”.
    Which begs the question, was the Warren commission correct in its findings that Oswald did it or not.
    Can’t have it both ways.
    Trouble is the mainstream media and the general public don’t really pay much attention to stuff like that.
    Give them the latest installement of whatever on tv
    and that’s the end of it.

  10. One conclusion that no longer seems to be in dispute, Oswald didn’t do it.
    Sure, the offical report is a done deal. No one believes it, no one has to believe it. It stands as a “Closed Case”.

  11. I’ve researched this topic for 20 years and have heard and read about every angle to what really happened that day in Dealy Plaza. To all this, I ask one question that no one seems to realize or certtainly be able to answer yet it is so troubling – who the hell were those individuals behind the grassy knoll claiming to be secret service agents moments before and after the assassination when it’s a fact no secret service were stationed there?

  12. How much evidence do we really need at this point to prove that President John F. Kennedy was murdered as a result of a conspiracy? Only now has it been admitted that President Lincoln’s assassination was the result of a conspiracy and this is finally divulged by the government after 145 yrs. UNBELIEVEABLE! There are many questions in life that leave us all baffled, but these pertain to the uncertainty of life’s circumstances and imponderables. The murder of President Kennedy does not fit in with these imponderables because the evidence overwhelmingly shows ther was a definite conspiracy. When 145 yrs has expired from the time of Kennedy’s assassination will the truth be known. For all the principle players in it will have been long dead.

  13. A very interesting book I read was Kill Zone by Craig Roberts. He mentions that legendary Marine Corp. sniper Carlos Hathcock Jr. who achieved 93 kills in VIetnam and as many as 300 kills in total did a renactment of the JFK shooting while he ran a sniper training school in Quantico, Va. He set up the target, vehicle, distance and all of the conditions that existed that terrible day in Dallas. Hathcock came away a firm disbeliever in Oswald’s shooting alone because he couldn’t do it as a master rifleman while Oswald was a poor to average shooter at best in the Marines. I also learned that the Israeli Mossad failed to perform a renactment of the shooting and even the Russians in Oswald’s hunting club in Minsk stated that he was such a poor shot they often gave him some game to take home because he always missed his prey. Henry Hurt has done some interesting research in his book Reasonable Doubt in which he interviewed
    men who had been in the Marines with Oswald, most or all of whom stated he was a very poor marksman. I find it incredible to believe that a man with such a bad history with rifles could possibly have done what the Warren Commission said he did on November 22nd, 1963.

  14. I am a confirmed conspiracy theorist. The reason is not because of Oswald’s intriguing intelligence community background (Atsugi, Minsk, New Orleans, Mexico City, Dallas, TSBD), it’s not the single bullet theory, not “back & to the left,” not the CIA’s mis-information campaign, not the contradicting witnesses nor perjured testimony, not bungled investigations nor autopsy, not mysterious deaths, murders, & it’s not the continued withholding of information nor the decades-old coverups. The reason is: because of all the reasons put together.
