Dealey Plaza

© MMXIII V.1.1.0
by Morley Evans

This aerial shot of Dealey Plaza shows one set of possible shooters involved in the JFK ambush. Notice the parking lots available to shooters who could hide amongst trees, shoot, walk to their cars and drive away. Elm Street is truly a shooting gallery. Click for a large view. The assassination of JFK is completely different from the unsuccessful attempts made by John Hinkley (Reagan) or Squeaky Fromme (Ford). It is also completely different from the successful assassinations made by John Wilkes Booth (Lincoln), Leon Czolgosz (McKinley) and Charles J. Guiteau (Garfield). LBJ personally oversaw the parade route design down Main Street and argued for the peculiar and unnecessary turn at the end into Dealey Plaza that violated every security rule of the Secret Service. The night before, LBJ argued violently with JFK to keep his life long pal, Texas Governor John Connally, out of the death car. LBJ wanted his enemy, U.S. Senator Ralph Yarborough, to ride with Kennedy. As the motorcade turned right onto N. Houston St., the puzzled Secret Service agent riding on the right rear of the Presidential limo was ordered to dismount and walk. Lyndon Baines Johnson crouched low as the motorcade travelled along N. Houston St. towards the Texas School Book Depository where it would make a long slow left turn onto Elm Street and ride into history.

Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas

The President of the United States was under the protection of these police agencies in Dallas, Texas, on the day of the assassination, November 22, 1963: 1). the Dallas Police Department; 2). the Secret Service; 3). the Dallas County Sheriff's Department; and 4). the Federal Bureau of Investigation. While not a police department, itself, the C.I.A. was also active. None of these agencies protected John Fitzgerald Kennedy (or John Connally for that matter). The Chief of the Dallas Police Department, Jesse Curry, spent all of his time with Lyndon Baines Johnson rather than directing his police officers. All police investigations stopped after 70 minutes when Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested. Oswald wasn't protected either. The crime scene was not secured. Evidence was mishandled, altered, lost, or destroyed. The Secret Service stopped the autopsy at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas and illegally removed Kennedy's body (at gunpoint). Kennedy's body was shipped to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, where an autopsy was performed by senior administrative officers who, though they were doctors, were not qualified to perform an autopsy. JFK's brain was removed as is standard practice and then lost. Doctors at Parkland Hospital testified that the back of JFK's head was blown off. A large occipital fragment was found on Elm Street after the shooting. Autopsy photos show the back of someone's head that is intact. Only facts that supported the theory that Lee Harvey Oswald alone was the assassin were admitted into evidence. Afraid they were going to be framed for the murder, the Soviet Union conducted its own (clandestine) investigation which lead to Lyndon Baines Johnson as the prime suspect. But what American would believe those commies in 1963? Johnson and his accomplices committed the perfect crime. They went on to lead the so-called "Free World" for the next fifty years. Most of the perpetrators are dead now but their successors are still in control. With the Soviet Union gone, they are working their latest scam, the War on Terror, and stockpiling billions or rounds of ammo in case people ever wake up. Some ask, "Why does JFK matter?" That's why.

________________________________________________


The mayor [Earle Cabell] helped LBJ secure the loyalty of Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry. Strangely, Curry would appear at Johnson’s sleeve for all of the days in the aftermath of the president’s murder. It was clear that Johnson, through Curry, was controlling the Dallas Police Department.

Over one thousand deputies of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department were called to their department auditorium on the morning of November 22 and told expressly, “You are in Dealey Plaza as observers. No matter what you see or hear, take no law enforcement action. You are there in respect for the presidency of the United States as observers and not law enforcement officers.”

This would explain the strange actions of the Dallas Police Department in the aftermath of the president’s shooting. The Texas School Book Depository building was not sealed as a crime scene, and the building was swarmed by reporters, thrill seekers, and tourists creating mayhem. The entire building was never searched. The search of the sixth floor was bungled: No evidence was photographed as found, most was marred with the fingerprints of police handlers, and the legally required “chain of evidence,” documentation of strict evidence control was willfully violated.

Likewise, LBJ’s relationship with Secret Service Director John Rowley is also underestimated by many of those examining the JFK murder. They both served in the National Youth Administration under Roosevelt and were friends beginning in the ’40s. There is no other way to explain the serious lapses in Secret Service protocol during Kennedy’s trip to Dallas on November 22, 1963. The 120-degree turn to get to Dealey Plaza where the president’s limousine would drop below 40 MPH was against all Secret Service mandates. Agents were directed not to ride on the limousine bumper; the two agents normally assigned to walk beside the car at the rear axle were called off. A stunning and widely available Internet video shows agents being pulled from their normal positions by superiors. It is quite simple to conclude that Rowley was in Johnson’s pocket.

The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth

© MMXIII V.1.7.5
by Morley Evans

Don't forget LBJ, the psychopathic serial murderer.

Cui Bono? On November 21, 1963, LBJ (Uncle Cornpone) was days away from destruction and incarceration by the Kennedy brothers. Attorney General Robert Kennedy had the goods on him. On November 22, 1963, LBJ magically became the POTUS when John F. Kennedy was ambushed in Dealey Plaza in Dallas.

Lyndon Baines Johnson began his career in Washington as a congressional secretary in 1931. He served in the House of Representatives (1937 to 1949?) and the Senate (1948 to 1960). LBJ was Leader of the Senate Minority (1953 to 1955) and Leader of the Senate Majority (1955 to 1960). LBJ was the Vice President (1960 to 1963). During those 32 years, Lyndon Baines Johnson, who started with nothing, amassed almost $100 million (more than $765 million in today's dollars) and acquired the connections and power to organize the assassination to move up to the top, Mafia-style.

As the President of the United States (1963 to 1969), LBJ had supreme power to engineer the cover-up, the centerpiece of which was the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, AKA "The Warren Commission". The Commission was unprecedented in history. LBJ appointed all the members and controlled the proceedings. The prime suspect got to investigate his own crime — a miscarriage which is a crime on its face.

Others who benefitted were: J. Edgar Hoover — LBJ's neighbour and confidant for 20 years — who got to be Director of the FBI for life; the Mafia which got rid of Robert Kennedy; The Joint Chiefs of Staff which got war; the Secret Service which got rid of a "commie traitor"; the Ku Klux Klan which got rid of a "liberal"; the Texas business cabal — which included Texas Big Oil (including H.L. Hunt and Clint Murchison) and Texas war contractors General Dynamics, Brown and Root, Halliburton, and Bell Helicopters) who made billions. Factions within the CIA which is "a conspiracy unto itself" got the war in Vietnam; Cuban exiles in Florida got revenge for the Bay of Pigs fiasco; and Israel got the Six Day War, nuclear weapons, and unending and inexhaustible U.S. military, intelligence, propaganda, financial, and diplomatic support. Israel would start getting as much U.S. foreign aid as all others combined. Best of all, for them, with this official U.S. government endorsement, the Zionist project on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean would receive the financial and moral backing of the Jewish American community whose support had been lukewarm up to then. As a bone of contention in the Arab world, Israel with its paranoiac ideology and belligerent policies is good for business — if one's business is munitions and war (which has been relabeled "defense" since 1945 because everyone is against war).

The shooters were probably not Americans. Assassinating the President would run against the grain of most Americans who have been schooled from birth to admire the President of the United States.  They may have come from the Corsican Mafia, as some investigators believe, or they may have been Israelis who are schooled from birth to owe their highest allegiance to Israel and its defense. Kennedy sought peace in the Middle East, talked to Nasser and refused to give Ben Gurion nuclear weapons. Others could have done the job, but Israel specializes in assassination by snipers. Israel even uses snipers for crowd control. As the biggest beneficiary after LBJ, one would pick Israel as the source of the shooters who would not have been free-lancers if they were Israelis. Whoever the shooters were, they were almost certainly quietly killed shortly after the assassination. As every pirate knows, dead men tell no tales. They would have gone to their just deserts. Money would be no incentive for people who know they would not live to spend it. Ideology would. People "die for their country" every day.

Whoever the shooters were, LBJ was bought by billionaire supporters of Israel, just as Truman had been bought before Johnson. It was LBJ who put Israel on the gravy train. Why would the Mafia choose Israel of all places for high-quality foreign assassins? There are many there and the Mafia has always had direct connections with Israel through Jewish Mafiosi like Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky who were partners and life-long friends of Lucky Luciano. The three friends were tutored by Arnold Rothstein who invented the prohibition era rackets and suggested that gangs co-operate rather than fight each other. Lepke Buchalter's and then Albert Anastasia's "Murder Incorporated" mostly used Jewish assassins. The Mafia (in the person of Carlos Marcello) had approval of mob bosses in Chicago and New York. The Mafia would have recruited the shooters and Jack Ruby (Jacob Rubenstein) who had been ordered to kill the scapegoat. Ruby was reluctant. He had several opportunities before he finally shot Oswald in the basement parkade of the Dallas Police Station. Ruby was under extreme pressure. Ruby, a small-time hoodlum who ran a strip club that was favoured by many members of the DPD (who enjoyed food, girls, and free drinks courtesy of Ruby), had surprised the local Rabbi by turning up to pray — before the assassination — at the Dallas Synagogue where he had seldom gone before.

The CIA would have managed the patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald, who, in all likelihood, never fired a shot or knew anything about the conspiracy to kill Kennedy. He had been prepared over the years to take the fall for something, sometime. Oswald was seen within minutes of the shooting by several witnesses — including a cop — sitting in the lunch room on the 2nd floor, sipping a soda. Before someone told the cops Oswald was the assassination suspect, according to the Dallas Police Department, Oswald walked out the front door of the Texas School Book Depository through a swarm of cops to board a bus to go to his rooming house. The Dallas Police Department then cracked the case in record time. Oswald was arrested 70 minutes after the assassination. "Oswald entered the Texas Theatre shortly after 1:30 p.m. without paying for a ticket, ostensibly to avoid police. They [the DPD] were later informed by the assistant manager that a man had entered the theater without paying." Oswald was not charged with failing to buy a ticket to watch the movie. He was arrested by four officers and was charged with murdering Officer Tippit and assassinating the President of the United States. How did the Dallas Police Department arrive at that conclusion? Who was Officer Tippit and why was he sent "to remain at large" in Oswald's neighborhood? Who killed him? 

After Oswald allegedly shot dead Dallas police officer J. D. Tippit, he was taken into police custody and within hours was named the lone assassin.
Stone, Roger (2013-11-01). The Man Who Killed Kennedy (Kindle Locations 3551-3552). Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

Without having a clue, how would the Dallas Police Department have known Oswald was a suspect? Oswald was arrested first. Evidence was found later. The intrepid sleuths of the Dallas Police Department had failed to solve the attempted murder of General Edwin Walker on April 10, 1963. It was an unsolved case until the FBI managed to pin it on Lee Harvey Oswald ten months later by pressuring Oswald's wife, a Russian who spoke no English.

The Texas Connection (pages 46 and 47) states: "While the [Warren] Commission went to desperate lengths to prove that Oswald killed Kennedy with the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle, it in fact proved the contrary." The Commission proved the Mannlicher-Carcano "sniper's rifle" could not have been the weapon used to kill JFK.*

Johnson was a master of planning and getting what he wanted from people who were not inclined to co-operate. He was famous for the "Johnson treatment" of intimidation. Johnson may have hatched his scheme to become the President the night he lost the nomination to John F. Kennedy at the Democratic convention in 1960. Or he may have been planning for years to be "a heartbeat away" from the Presidency. Johnson was powerful in Texas and Washington, but he had no national base and little chance of being elected. His chances of being elected, however, would be good after he became the President. Like Hoover, Johnson used blackmail. Like AIPAC today, Johnson took control of Congress by ensuring Members would do what he wanted or they would not get re-elected.

Temptations are many in Washington and Members of Congress leave themselves wide open to be blackmailed by people who know how to do it. The Kennedys reckless behaviour is not unique. Johnson, himself, was at least as promiscuous as the Kennedys. Members of Congress become millionaires on a civil service income. How? Johnson used blackmail to become the Leader of the Senate Majority, the second most powerful man after the President. Johnson used blackmail to get on the Democratic ticket in 1960. Everyone on the list in paragraph four above, however, would have been more than happy to co-operate and keep quiet — with the Kennedys gone they all got what they wanted. The "free press" got to yammer on for fifty years about the tragedy and the unsolvable "crime of the century" — writing off as a kook anyone who deviated from LBJ's official explanation. This is only one example of how the "free press" plays everyone for a fool — and always has.

Until The Texas Connection was published a few years ago, no one dared to name LBJ as the ring leader. LBJ was protected by the deification that surrounds the POTUS. Fear has also protected the conspirators. People who know too much are killed. Fifty years later, most of the conspirators are dead themselves, and people like me, who don't have any first-hand knowledge, are merely pissing into the wind with their opinions after connecting dots.

Epilogue

Lyndon Baines Johnson knew how to use power, but Washington's power will soon be gone. Power ineluctably is shifting away from the United States. LBJ was miserable in his retirement and he will now be burning in Hell forever, one hopes.

The people running the game did not want it changed. The Kennedy brothers tried to change the game but they underestimated their opponents' power while they overestimated their own power. Evil seems omnipotent but, currently, an anonymous girl living in a company dormitory and working for a few Yuan in some Foxconn factory somewhere in China or Taiwan, a shopper at Walmart somewhere and millions like them are the people who are changing the world — not the rich and powerful. "The most powerful military the world has ever known," is powerless to change this and things are worse than that from Washington's perspective: The U.S. dollar is in the toilet — put there by the Federal Reserve System, Wall Street, Big Business and the U.S. government — waiting to be flushed. When that happens, everything will change. Everyone will be affected, worldwide.

After looking at the record, one must conclude that Washington cannot be reformed and that Americans must put as much distance between themselves and Washington as Germans have put between themselves and the Nazis. Americans must restore the American dream which inspires everyone, friend and foe alike.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth, Matthew 5:5.
No person or group planned the downfall of Washington and its empire this way. Downfall will come by people who have pounded their swords into ploughshares and sold them at low low prices, driving Washington's tax slaves out of business. Greed and universal rottenness also proved to be major contributing factors. All military means for over two hundred years have failed to stop the Juggernaut on the Potomac from taking over the world, which is its historic mission. Of course most who believed Washington's story (like me) believed Washington was saving the world. People and groups loyal to Washington have been trying to prevent Washington's demise for decades, to no avail. Is that not amazing?

______________________________________

* The Texas Connection is full of facts that completely destroy the official version of the JFK assassination. This is one of the best:

While the Commission went to desperate lengths to prove that Oswald killed Kennedy with the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle it in fact proved the contrary. On November 27, 1963 the F.B.I. conducted the initial series of rifle tests with the alleged assassination weapon. As part of the tests the F.B.I. determined that because Kennedy was moving away in the limousine, Oswald had at most 5.6 seconds to fire the three shots that allegedly killed him [JFK]. This time range conclusion was based on observations from Oswald's alleged vantage point on the southwest corner of the 6th floor in the Texas School Book Depository in comparison to films and photographs of the murder. It was established that Oswald's vision of the target was blocked for a time by a large tree. As a result, while the motorcade did travel for almost a fulI block on Elm Street in front of Oswald, from Oswald's position it was agreed that he had less than 6 full seconds to fire the three shots at the target when it was in view. To prove that this was possible and that Oswald was the lone assassin, the F.B.I. started out by having three master marksmen using Oswald's rifle rapidly fire a series of 3 shots at stationary targets located only 45 feet away. The three experts each fired 3 shots within 9 seconds, 8 seconds and 6 seconds, respectively. In this test none of the marksmen were physically capable of firing the three rounds within the 5.6 second requirement. Also, not surprisingly, all of the marksmen's shots were high and to the right, missing the stationary targets located only 45 feet away.

Because these tests did not support the lone assassin conclusion, the F.B.I. was required to conduct another test on March 16, 1964. However, on this occasion only the best of the three original marksmen was used (Robert Frazier with a previous best time of 6 seconds). In this test Frazier was required to fire a series of 3 shots at a stationary target 300 feet away. On this occasion Frazier's times for each of the 3 shot test series were 5.9 seconds, 6.2 seconds, and 6.5 seconds. Again, the expert failed to match Oswald's alleged time of 5.6 seconds, and again all of the shots were high and to the right of the intended target. Thus, "the best of the best marksmen" still could not help the Commission support the lone assassin theory.

Not giving up, on March 27, 1964 a third test was arranged. This test was conducted by the U.S. Army Ballistic Research Laboratory using three new marksmen again firing at stationary targets. Again, only one of the three experts was capable of firing three shots close to the required time limit. However, continuing its efforts to prove the impossible was possible, the Commission allowed the new marksmen to use a gun rest, and to take as much time as they needed to line up their first shot at the stationary target (which Oswald could not do because the Kennedy limousine was emerging from trees). But even with these altered test conditions the marksmen again failed.

Ignoring the three scientific tests which proved that it was impossible for Oswald to have been a lone assassin, [or hit the target with the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle] the Commission solved the problem on paper rather than on the rifle range.

You must keep in mind that the main purpose of the "Warren Commission" — which should properly be called "The LBJ Commission" — was to cover up the crime and protect the perpetrators.

The Man Who Killed Kennedy

© MMXIII V.1.1.4
by Morley Evans

I highly recommend to you: The Man Who Killed Kennedy by Roger Stone.

Roger Stone's treatise will give students of human behaviour a glimpse into how the world really works. Forget about your history class, civics lessons and the News. They belong on your bookshelf with Mother Goose and Aesop's Fables. Stone has had a lifetime of looking at Washington from the inside. Very few people inside ever talk. As Carlos Marcello noted: "Three people can keep a secret, as long as two of them are dead."

Here are two sample passages from The Man Who Killed Kennedy:

Stone was raising money for one of Ronald Reagan's campaigns. He met with Roy Cohn for coffee. Cohn brought a friend to meet Stone. Cohn's friend was Fat Tony Salerno, front-boss of the Genovese crime family:

Roy says we are going with Reagan, and that’s all right by me,” said Tony. Salerno said he had eschewed presidential politics since 1960 when “Jack Kennedy took our money and our votes and then fucked us.” I couldn’t resist. “Who really killed JFK?” I asked Fat Tony. “It was Carlos and LBJ” the gangster replied. “He got what was coming to him.” Cohn simply nodded his head to affirm Salerno’s claim and they both laughed.

Stone, Roger (2013-11-01). The Man Who Killed Kennedy (Kindle Locations 2878-2882). Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.. Kindle Edition. 

It is also astounding how many witnesses and those believed intimately connected to the Kennedy assassination met untimely and abnormal deaths. In his recent work, Hit List, which contextualized the many bizarre circumstances of deaths surrounding the assassination, Richard Belzer estimated that in the fourteen years following the incident, out of the approximately 1,400 witnesses, seventy have died unnaturally. [8] The odds of this happening has been mathematically calculated as 1 in 715 million trillion trillion. [9] Lyndon Johnson, as a psychopathic serial murderer, is not a pleasant topic to think about for establishment liberals who like to think of him as a belated champion of civil rights, voting rights, and a slew of Great Society programs. In fact, acknowledging the JFK assassination for what it was— a coup d’├ętat— is discrediting to the narrative of the United States as a beacon of democracy, freedom, and justice as well as a place that is morally superior to banana republics and third-world dictatorships. Establishment conservatives, just like the liberals, choke on that bone in unison.

Stone, Roger (2013-11-01). The Man Who Killed Kennedy (Kindle Locations 6210-6217). Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.. Kindle Edition. 

Along with murdering John F. Kennedy and dozens of others:
Lyndon Baines Johnson (who set the stage for Richard Nixon who continued the War in Vietnam as others wanted and who was driven from office by the CIA when he started to look into the Kennedy Assassination) is responsible for killing almost 60,000 Americans during the War in Vietnam along with several million Vietnamese, Cambodians and Laotians while bombing them into the Stone Age. Lyndon Baines Johnson engineered the Six Day War, gave nuclear weapons to Israel and hooked Israel up to the United States Treasury and the American weapons industry AKA the "defense" industry. Lyndon Baines Johnson enacted Civil Rights legislation in a ham-fisted manner that ensured continuing race hatred. Johnson, himself — like Hoover, was a virulent racist who worked with other racists to make the Great Society that Johnson created to be his legacy.

You may not like Lyndon Baines Johnson, but historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and LBJ's many other girlfriends loved him. They must have seen something good that I have missed. Apparently Doris, who seems like a decent person, herself, has written a book. Lady Bird Johnson, Lucy Bird Johnson and Lynda Bird Johnson may have thought LBJ was okay too. Please note how many people close to LBJ had the initials "LBJ". When you read about LBJ's peculiar behaviour you will understand why some said quietly at the time, "If LBJ were not the president, he'd be in a mental hospital." You will wonder why no one reported the strange behaviour of LBJ even when thousands were rioting in the streets and LBJ was very unpopular. The press knew the truth but reported other things. That's what the press does. They lie by failing to mention things. Here's one example and there are many more:

In Flawed Giant, Dallek writes, “During a private conversation with some reporters who pressed him to explain why we were in Vietnam, Johnson lost his patience. According to Arthur Goldberg, LBJ unzipped his fly, drew out his substantial organ [which Johnson called "Jumbo"] and declared, ‘This is why!’”

Stone, Roger (2013-11-01). The Man Who Killed Kennedy (Kindle Locations 502-504). Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

In a letter dated October 7, 1994, she [JFK's secretary, Evelyn Lincoln] expressed her belief that the “five conspirators, in my opinion, were Lyndon B. Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, the Mafia, the CIA, and the Cubans in Florida.” [15]

Stone, Roger (2013-11-01). The Man Who Killed Kennedy (Kindle Locations 5804-5806). Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

Hopefully, you will begin to wonder about the rest of our leaders and the deification that protects them — the higher up one goes, the more god-like everyone makes them. You might even consider the fact that organizations have lives and missions of their own. These can span generations and even centuries. If you begin to wonder why things are the way they are, those are the reasons.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his brother Robert Fitzgerald Kennedy tried to change the game. That's what you can remember about them. The people running the game didn't want that. They still do not want the game changed and the game has not changed. The game has always been world domination.

It's just that simple. Do not despair: fortunately for us peons there is something the wise guys who run everything don't know about: there really is justice here in The Big Casino and it's coming soon.

JFK on Cuba

© MMXIII V.1.0.0
 by Morley Evans

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Without glorifying John Fitzgerald Kennedy, there is a possibility that the world could have taken a turn for the better had he not been assassinated on November 22, 1963. Despite his faults, John Kennedy had his points. Before The Bay of Pigs fiasco — which Kennedy inherited from the CIA that cooked it up during the last days of the Eisenhower administration — this is what Kennedy said about Cuba:

“I believe that there is no country in the world, including the African regions, including any and all the countries under colonial domination, where economic colonization, humiliation, and exploitation were worse than in Cuba, in part owing to my country’s policies during the Batista regime,” Kennedy told French journalist Jean Daniel. “I believe that we created, built, and manufactured the Castro movement out of whole cloth and without realizing it. I believe that the accumulation of these mistakes has jeopardized all of Latin America. The great aim of the Alliance for Progress is to reverse this unfortunate policy. This is one of the most, if not the most, important problems in American foreign policy. I can assure you that I have understood the Cubans.” 11
