Thank you for your article, John. I'd encourage you to run for office but you you aren't crazy enough to run, or to win. Keep writing!
If Marty Feldman were alive today, I'd vote for him in an instant. Ironic that many Republicans suffer from the same lack of self-awareness that plagued Igor:
Moderate Republicans: Perhaps I can help you with that hump.
Rand, Ted, David, Mike, Rick, Michele and Paul: What hump?
I "liberal" means someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties - someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a liberal.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th President of the United States. I grew up in the shadow of your death 50 years ago today, but I am guided by your life and your work.
RIP Mr. President
John, This screed was pretty strong at the beginning but a bit weak at the end.
And I understand why.
This is a tough subject to tackle since it's been so deliberately muddied over thousands of years.
The whole dilemma boils down to the fact that virtually everyone focuses almost entirely on Me, My, Mine during every waking hour.
The effect of this constant focus results in the world we get to experience.
The more concentrated the focus on Me, My, Mine, the less real connection and the less interest in the well being of anyone else, except Me, My, Mine.
When this focus is joined with enough mental ability to control others psychologically, socially and economically, there's an opportunity for some to accumulate huge amounts of wealth and power to themselves.
And obviously it's in these controller's best interest to structure their environment to increase this flow of wealth and power to themselves in any way possible.
Along with this goes a natural mental compartmentalization that legitimizes the grabbing of as much wealth and power as they can for themselves.
Both business and politics play very well to this sort of twisted focus and that's why we are witnessing the extremes of power and powerlessness, wealth and poverty that we are in these times.
Unfortunately, these extremes are only going to get worse, unless and until enough of the population expands its awareness and moves beyond the Me, My, Mine limited view of reality.
Bill, To your credit you characterized the event on that fateful day quite delicately for the ignorant readers of the Weekly.
Even your overview of questions and obvious official falsehoods discovered since that day has been handled quite delicately.
Not having to be quite as delicate as you, here's the reality we're saddled with:
Up until the 911 false flag, the Kennedy assassination was one of the more cynical events perpetrated on the American population.
Just like the 911 Commission Report, the Warren Commission Report was a total white wash of what actually occurred.
Although the 911 Commission report is infinitely more obviously fallacious, the Warren Commission report was riddled with holes (pun intended) as well.
All of the points you mention have been substantiated over the years with a key piece of the whole puzzle being released when E. Howard Hunt, prior to his death, notated and verbalized with his son St. John Hunt ,the reasons and the actors (including himself) of the assassination .
Lyndon Johnson, whose own career was assisted by JFK nemesis J. Edgar Hoover (FBI), gave the orders to a CIA-led hit team, and helped guide the Warren Commission/lone gunman cover-up.
Cord Meyer: CIA agent, architect of the Operation Mockingbird disinformation apparatus, and husband of Mary Meyer (who had an affair with JFK).
David Atlee Philips: CIA and Bay of Pigs veteran. Recruited William Harvey (CIA) and Cuban exile militant Antonio Veciana.
Frank Sturgis: CIA operative, mercenary, Bay of Pigs veteran, and later Watergate figure.
David Morales: CIA hit man, Bay of Pigs veteran. Morales was also a figure involved with the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.
Lucien Sarti: Corsican assassin and drug trafficker, possible "French gunman," Grassy Knoll (second) shooter.
Twisted military/industrial patriotism based on the fact that Kennedy had announced that he was going to remove the military advisors from Vietnam and remove the U.S. from entanglement there.
Threats to Central Bank control of the economy in that Kennedy had already had the U.S. Treasury printing currency with the goal to replace Federal Reserve Notes issued by the privately owned Federal Reserve.
Threats to the Mafia with a concerted effort by he and Attorney General Bobby Kennedy to take down the crime syndicate in the U.S.
There is much more to this but what is clear by now is that beyond any reasonable doubt, the US government murdered John F. Kennedy. There are people still alive today who were involved directly and indirectly implicated. Some are probably even serving in positions of high influence. Some still have never been identified or touched.
As unsettling as this may be, what occurred on 911 was far more insidious even than this.
Since you're clearly a sharp and inquisitive man I'm betting your already well aware of this.
I also understand that there's a virtual media blackout and journalist blackballing for discussing 911, however, unless it's to re-enforce the official conspiracy myth.
Love the CAVE BANANA NIMBY phrase. Good stuff. I'll use it in one of my pseudo intellectual classes!
When all is said & done, it was a single deranged shooter and an incompetent FBI & CIA who should have taken Oswald into custody when he made his last trip to Mexico. The male spawn of old Irish Joe seemed star crossed for untimely deaths and accidents. Tis a pity. They had a lot more to contribute.
Diapers & Politicians should be changed often, for the same reason. Big Lies + Big Money + Big Egos = Corrupt Practices. Genetically Selected Sociopathic Liars is a good call. Vote Repulsican!
Say it ain't so, John! Say you ain't a NIMBY beneath that pseudo-intellectual persona you present to the public. Maybe even a CAVE BANANA NIMBY (Citizens Against Virtually Everything-Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anybody-Never In My Back Yard).
JFK - though he had his faults - was a good man. I'm sure he would be horrified at the freak show the modern Democrat party has become as a result of being hijacked by Godless, immoral liberals and "progressives". 50 years ago, one could actually be proud to say they belonged to the Democrat party. Not so much these days.....
"You remember how the kids around you reacted, how you looked to them for how maybe you should react because you weren't sure. This was new. There had been no drills, ever..."
I can identify with that! I was 10, at Roosevelt Elementary in Boise. Cope will appreciate this - at the age of 10 and living in a "Republican household," I didn't know for sure whether a dead Democrat president was a bad thing, or a good thing. My parents were horrified and deeply saddened, despite their political leanings. Fortunately as I've matured I've discovered that there are things far more important than politics.
It snowed in Boise that afternoon, so I assume it did the same thing upwind in Meridian.
A side-note: Among the reminiscences about JFK over the last few weeks, I learned that, perhaps ironically, he was one of 8 U.S. presidents to have been a Life Member of the NRA, and the only Democrat.
