Who Killed JFK? (Part 1)

Jacqueline Kennedy Reportedly Believed Lyndon B. Johnson Behind JFK's Assassination

Published August 08, 2011
Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis believed Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the assassination of her husband, according to tapes recorded by the former first lady just months after President John F. Kennedy's death, the Daily Mail reports.
The tapes, which are set to be released by ABC News, reportedly reveal that Kennedy-Onassis believed then-vice president Johnson, along with businessmen in the South, planned the Nov. 22, 1963, assassination of her husband in Dallas, Texas.
"The tabloid reports about the content of the tapes are totally erroneous," an ABC News spokesperson said in a statement to "ABC News isn't releasing any content from those tapes until mid-September at which point it will be clear how off base these reports are. The actual content of the tapes provide unique and important insight into our recent past from one of the most fascinating and influential First Ladies in American history."
Kennedy-Onassis thought gunman Lee Harvey Oswald -- long believed to be a lone assassin -- was part of a larger conspiracy involving Johnson, according to the Daily Mail.
The tapes, which were recorded with historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr., also reveal that Kennedy-Onassis had an affair with actor William Holden in retaliation to her husband's reported indiscretions, the Daily Mail reports.
The tapes, which were sealed in a vault at the Kennedy Library in Boston, were supposed to be released 50 years after Kennedy-Onassis' 1994 death. But her daughter, Caroline Kennedy, reportedly agreed to their early release in exchange for ABC dropping its drama series about the family. It is not yet known when the tapes will air.
Secret Government
President John F. Kennedy apparently resisted the invisible government, and it probably cost him his life. In a speech shortly before his death he claimed that,
“There is a de facto “secret government” operating nationally and internationally and involved in the highest circles of the U.S. Government, exercising an impact over domestic policies and economics ranging between extreme influence to, at times, outright control. This extreme influence to outright control naturally includes the Presidency. The de facto “secret government,” much of whose intellectual- and financial- muscle are to be found in the New York office of the CFR, the great tax-free foundations, and certain international firms and corporations.”
Ten days later he was dead.

The news and truth are not the same thing. - Walter Lippmann

"The people will believe what the media tells them they believe."- George Orwell

"Television is altering the meaning of "being informed" by creating a species of information that might properly be called disinformation... Disinformation does not mean false information. It means misleading information - misplaced, irrelevant, fragmented or superficial information - information that creates the illusion of knowing something, but which in fact leads one away from knowing." - Neil Postman

Who Killed JFK? by Carl Oglesby Although he has become a legend, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was hardly the most popular president in history when he was gunned down in November, 1963. In the previous six months alone, the Secret Service had reviewed over 400 threats to his life. Three of these were serious enough to entail changes in his security routine. He was loathed by anti-Castro exiles, other rightwingers, the Mafia and even some of his own government agencies. In attempting to figure out who murdered him, it is important to understand who hated him, and why.

The Last Confessions of E. Howard Hunt by Erik Hedegaard: He was the ultimate keeper of secrets, lurking in the shadows of American history. He toppled banana republics, planned the Bay of Pigs invasion and led the Watergate break-in. Now he would reveal what he'd always kept hidden: who killed JFK?

Welcome to History Matters. In the wake of the end of the Cold War and the passage of the 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, the U.S. Government has declassified an enormous number of formerly-secret documents. Among the most stunning are those pertaining to the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy and its subsequent investigations. The new records contain stark indications of conspiracy, and a great wealth of material concerning the hows and whys of the ensuing coverup. These documents also include startling "new" facts about 1960s foreign policy regarding Vietnam, Cuba, and the other frontlines of the war against Communism.

JFK Lancer Productions & Publications works with the largest, most active group of President John F. Kennedy historical researchers and at the past conferences have had many of the most respected of the researchers from around the world speak on the assassination and on President Kennedy's policies.

Kennedy assassination theories: A number of theories exist with regard to the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Such theories began to be generated soon after his death and continue to be proposed today. Many of these theories propose a criminal conspiracy involving parties such as the CIA, the KGB, the Mafia, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, Vice President Lydon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Fidel Castro, Cuban exile groups opposed to the Castro government, and the military and/or government interests of the United States.

L. Fletcher Prouty - Fearless Truth Teller, or Crackpot? One of the truly interesting individuals associated with the Kennedy assassination, the late L. Fletcher Prouty was an Air Force officer who served in the Pentagon. He was therefore an "insider" who supposedly knows the "real scoop" about the Cold War, Vietnam, covert operations, and the Kennedy assassination. But did he really? Or was he a story teller whose stories don't survive scrutiny?

John F. Kennedy and the Monolithic and Ruthless Conspiracy: As people throughout the nation and the world struggled to make sense of the senseless act of the slaughter of a man who had the brains and guts to solve America's problems, and to articulate their feelings about President Kennedy's life and legacy, many recalled these words from his inaugural address which had now acquired new meaning: "All this will not be finished in the first one hundred days, nor in the first one thousand days, nor in the life of this administration. Nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin."

John F. Kennedy Assassinated November 22, 1963

Highly credible evidence and independent research show that elements of the CIA and other organized, institutional forces were involved in the killing of JFK.
The major media’s refusal to research or report evidence contradicting the official lone-gunman story is indicative of an even larger, structural conspiracy of denial and cover-up.

One of most widely studied, controversial events in US history, the JFK assassination was a true turning point. The voluminous research on this subject can be a bit overwhelming. While “JFK-nuts” may get caught up in some very arcane tidbits of evidence, there are some simple facts that entirely discredit the offical governmental story of what happened.
Kennedy had concrete plans to disengage from Vietnam and to limit the powers of the CIA. The prospect of such reforms made him a dangerous enemy to many forces within the government and military industrial complex.
The JFK assassination can be seen as coup-d’etat and a warning to all citizens and politicians who would dare to challenge the status quo. The fact that powerful forces within the government were able pull off such a crime and pass off such a flimsy cover story says a lot about the state of our “democracy.”
Even more significantly, the complicity of the American media and their refusal to question or pursue the truth show that we do not have a free press or any significant oversight by the people over the government.
The idea that institutional forces—government agencies, politicians, business interests—could explode the head of a popular young president in broad daylight, and get away with it, says a lot about the reach of their power and the scope of the conspiracy.
JFK is sort of a psychological crossroads. As with many of the topics on TruthMove, you can often see a clear divide between the people who are willing to consider that JFK was killed by establishment forces and those who refuse to or simply cannot consider that possibility.
Many mainstream left-wingers (Chomsky, Ramsey Clark, etc.) have never been willing to take this leap. Perhaps this is because the implications are so stark and the “conspiratorial” position challenges many well-conditioned attitudes about the benevolence of our government and other humans in general. It truly does strike at an illusion of American idealism that many people have absorbed deep into their consciousness.
In many ways the JFK assassination is a sociological and psychological milestone. While evidence—film, audio, testimony, documentation—clearly points to the involvement of US intelligence, the “official story” of lone gunman Oswald has perservered in the media and “mainstream reality” as the “truth.”

EvidenceOswald had contacts with the CIA and FBI before the assassination. He was seen by witnesses with Clay Shaw, David Ferrie, and Guy Banister—all with proven intelligence connections. There is compelling evidence that Oswald himself was a government agent. For example Oswald had top secret security clearance while in the Marines and was stationed at a top secret base in Japan.

According to the official “magic bullet theory,” a single bullet pierced Kennedy’s back, moved upward to exit through his neck, then proceeded to pierce Governor Connally’s back who was sitting in the front seat. This same bullet is then supposed to have shattered Connally’s fifth rib, caused compound fractures in his wrist, and hit him in the left knee area. The Warren Commission also claims that an almost pristine bullet found on the President’s stretcher was this “magic bullet.” This convoluted theory was necessary to limit the number of bullets to 3, which was the maximum Oswald’s rifle could fire in the specified time interval.

J. Edgar Hoover: “The thing I am concerned about, and so is Mr. Katzenbach, is having something issued so we can convince the public that Oswald is the real assassin.” see (original document)
Many witnesses, reporters, and others connected to the Kennedy assassination have turned up dead under mysterious circumstances (take a look at this).
In sworn testimony, witnesses claim that they observed someone other than Oswald, claiming to be Oswald, “calling attention to himself with odd behavior-trying to defect to Cuba in Mexico City, firing at another person’s target at a firing range, test-driving a used car at dangerous speeds, asking a potential employer if the building had a good view of downtown Dallas, even threatening to kill President Kennedy.”
It seems clear that Oswald was part of a “fake defector” double agent program in which the US was planting spies and assets into communist countries and organizations. His association with the “Fair Play for Cuba Committee,” visits to the Soviet Union, and other communist “links” appear to be the calculated groundwork to establish him as the radical left wing assassin. Oswald was smoothly readmitted to the US after offering US military secrets to the Soviet Union (he was likely trying to plant himself as a double agent).
Israeli Orders: Kill JFK ! (Itzhak Rabin In Dallas 22Nov63)

The Problem: JFK would not allow Israel to have the nuclear bomb and plutonium from materials created at Dimona. To make sure of it, he demanded 6 months inspections of the facility by the USA. JFK was angry with France for having built the Dimona facility in the first place and he supported Algeria in their Revolutionary War for Independence.His foreign policy absolutely enraged Ben-Gurion as well as French nationalists. The Ben-Gurion government, already under pressure from the Lavon Affair and JFK , collapsed on the 16th of June 1963. The JFK assassination was the most successful crime of the century.
