The “violent backward motion” over and over again. Yes, His head and body would jerk a little. But, What exactly are we looking at? They certainly want us to believe we see what they say we see, Don’t they?

The first concrete demonstration to the world that power in the US is vested not in the President but in unelected, unaccountable men who will murder the elected leader if they do not do their bidding.

And to do so in broad daylight, with a TV audience of millions able to see the killing shots, suggests a conscious desire for strong theatre that will send the message to future leaders (and the world ) that there are forces higher than the puppets in government who will always get what they want.

I cannot add anything about the crime – but I do have some insight on the cover up. Cui bono? According to Peter Dale Scott – the real force behind the Commission was not Chief Justice Warren (who was still an active SCOTUS judge) – but Allen Dulles. That means that the recently sacked Director of the CIA – the very agency implicated in the crime – investigated the crime. As Phillip Zelikow would do later – the Commission was directed a posteriori form the conclusion to the fact (already determined by Dulles) that LHO was a ‘loner’, ‘without confederates.’… Read more »

I find it hard to make out what Oswald is saying when answering reporters’ questions. He admits he worked in the Book Depository building but much of the rest of his comments are hard to follow. Can anyone else tell me what they think he is saying in the footage? Where the plotters were very clever was in distracting attention towards the grassy knoll. In doing so, they diverted attention away from the culvert underneath the grassy knoll where the fatal shooter was located. If the shooter had been on the grassy knoll, JFK’s head would have moved DOWN and… Read more »

Grassy noll or culvert, the shot came from Kennedy’s right and hit him on the front.
As the official theory maintained that no shots were fired from the front, but only from the back and from the school depository, the backward motion of Kennedy’s head proved them wrong.
As for Oswald, he could clearly be heard saying, “I am only a patsy”, just before his death at the hands of Ruby. He said it ALL in a single sentence!

Angleton had chosen LHO as one of the patsies for one or any of the plots at least a year, more like 2-3, before Dallas which was only necessary as Chicago and Miami had failed and was part of the reason he and his new Russian wife were so easily allowed (back) into the USA when anyone else would have been arrested and charged with treason esp after his outbursts to the US ambassador and specialist radar knowledge esp in the light of the U-2/Powers controversy which undermined Eisenhowers attempted detente( He was there under the ONI/CIA False Defector Programme,entering… Read more »

America, welcome to tyranny. The first part of our coup d’etat was back in 1913, when the private bankers took control of our economy with their phony Federal Reserve, which is NOT federal and has NO reserve, except massive supplies of thin air, which they use to issue our debt-based currency. The bookend to the first coup d’etat was on 9/11.
But don’t think about slavery, like Bush the Younger said after 9/11, don’t worry, go out and shop!
In a way, the USA is back to the Founding Fathers original intent, where only wealthy, white land owners have the power.

There is a stark similarity between the ‘conspiracy’ to kill JFK, and the ‘demolition of the Twin Towers(and five or six other buildings, which rarely get a mention) on “9/11”, And that is, both events were televised, and turned into ‘infotainment’ which gained maximum coverage for propaganda purposes. Everyone on Earth can remember where they were when JFK died and when 9/11 happened. JFK’s assassination received even more dramatic(televised) national coverage later, when Jacob Rubenstein(Jack Ruby) was shown live on National television assassinating Oswald in cold blood(rather conveniently ensuing no need to go to trial for Oswald). Rubenstein also ‘conveniently’,… Read more »

You substitute “Bin Laden” for “Oswald”, and the similarity between “9/11” and “Kennedy” is complete. Both were ex-CIA assets, and both were falsely accused of a crime they BOTH denied! “Oswald” died at the hands of Ruby, linked to the corrupt Dallas police. Bin Laden died of kidney failure early 2002. He was kept “alive” on purpose by the CIA for many years, played out in “Bin Laden” video shows, featuring Bin laden clones, not even remotely resembling the original, until the US called them off. On may 2011, Obama-the-lier and noble-prized war criminal, announced that Bin laden was “killed”… Read more »

The US administration has already admitted that one of the bullets from JFK’s body was from their own security, so it’s not possible for Oswald to have been working alone.
He may have been employed as a shooter with the intention of making him a patsy, or just be a plain patsy without any involvement in the assassination. Either way, there was more than one actor in the event where JFK died.

Can you provide an authoritative source for your statement ‘that one of the bullets from JFK’s body was from their own security.’?

No kiddding eh? I would never toss stuff like that out without something, a link, an author’s name, what have you. Mabye our commenter is new at this. We all had to learn netiquette.

Of course. JFK was hit from the back, and then, from the front, so Oswald wasn’t the only shooter(and probably had nothing at all to do with it).

Keep in mind that he was wearing a neck to talbone brace when he was shot. He hurt his back, lol, when he overreached at a party, literally, for a woman he had his eye on. Which means that the lack of or limited (I’m not exactly sure how different assassination theorists tied that behavior into their theories, but it does get tied in) head whipping some noted in the Zapruder film was explicable.
