It’s Time to Solve the JFK Assassination

22 Nov

After half a century, now the mystery surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy can finally be solved.

It’s time.

The President and Mrs. Kennedy

Most are familiar with the many conspiracy theories. These include accusations involving Lee Harvey Oswald, a second gunman behind the ‘Grassy Knoll,’ the Mafia, the Cubans, the Russians, the CIA, the military-industrial complex, even Aristotle Onasis and President Lyndon Baines Johnson.   Yet none have been conclusive in confirming with absolute certainty who killed President Kennedy.

However, the JFK assassination conspiracy can still be solved. And here’s how.

I propose the following:

Draft legislation providing total immunity to anyone who provides new information on the JFK assassination.

We need to close the yet-unhealed wounds inflicted upon our nation by President Kennedy’s tragic death.

Yes, it’s time. Fifty years is long enough.

New Never-Seen Film of President Kennedy in Dallas

5 Nov

Never-before-seen colour footage has emerged of JFK riding in his presidential motorcade moments before he is assassinated. The short clip, which was believed lost until earlier this year, shows the President looking relaxed and giving a thumbs up as he is driven past cheering crowds lined up along Main Street in Dallas.

The footage was shot shortly before the motorcade headed west towards Dealey Plaza, where Kennedy was assassinated.

JFK Assassination

It was taken by office worker Andre Leche, who was living in Dallas at the time. He had just bought a new movie camera and thought the President’s visit would be a perfect opportunity to use it. Mr Leche died in 1987 and the film canister was thought lost. But this year his son Paul was placing something in his safety deposit box and discovered a yellow Kodak box with ‘Kennedy’ written on it.

He said: ‘My family lived in Dallas in November of 1963. On the 22nd my father, Andre Leche, decided we should use his new movie camera to film President Kennedy. ‘After my father’s death in 1987 the original film canister was lost until this year. After looking in vain in my house, I was putting something valuable in my safety deposit box and came across a yellow Kodak box with “Kennedy” written on it.’

ER Doctors Say JFK Was Shot From Front

29 Oct

A new book timed for the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, reveals that four doctors and two medical students among the first to see the former president believe that a hole below JFK’s Adam’s apple came from a shot fired in front of his car, a second-shooter theory dismissed by the controversial Warren Commission.

While the Commission said gunman Lee Harvey Oswald took all the shots from a building behind the president, riding in an open convertible through Dealey Plaza, the new book written about the medical professionals caring for Kennedy at Parkland Memorial Hospital bolsters a 1979 House report that JFK died in a conspiracy.

Abraham, Martin & John F. Kennedy

22 Oct

Perhaps no song better personifies our nation’s loss of great men than the tune known as “Abraham, Martin and John.”

Click here to listen to the song “Abraham, Martin and John” performed by Dion.

AbrahamMartinandJohn

Abraham, Martin and John”  is a tribute to the memory of great assassinated Americans, all icons of social change, namely Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy. It was written in response to the assassinations of Dr. King and President Kennedy in April and June of 1968.

Each of the first three verses features one of the men named in the song’s title, for example:

Has anybody here, seen my old friend John -
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lot of people, but it seems the good die young
I just looked around and he’s gone.

The final verse mentions Robert “Bobby” Kennedy, and ends with a description of him walking over a hill with the other three men.

More JFK Photos From Dallas

9 Sep

Rare photos taken by spectators on the day JFK was assassinated are available for the first time in decades.

The show at the International Center of Photography in New York, JFK November 22, 1963: A Bystander’s View of History, examines the photographs which show the fateful day from an angle not seen in official accounts of the day.

While some of the images were used in news reports at the time, the enduring image of the assassination has been through the famous film by Abraham Zapruder.

The snapshots show a smiling John F. Kennedy and wife Jackie moments before the President was allegedly shot by Lee Harvey Oswald. Other images show a distraught Jackie Kennedy at the President’s funeral and Oswald being led away by Federal office.

Unresolved answers about the assassination of President Kennedy may still be found. All that’s needed is new evidence. Find out more in the novel 11-22-1963: New Evidence.

11-22-1963: The President and Mrs. Kennedy Arrive In Dallas

The forthcoming contribution of Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone is called “JFK II” by some and the James Bond-esque title “Secrets Never Keep” by others.  Mr. Stone is quoted by the Seattle PI as saying “I will be delving into the analysis of the many convoluted conspiracy theories that have captivated a nation and held it hostage for almost 50 years. I hope to shed some light on what has become a dark shadow on the Nation’s soul.”

Another anticipated JFK film is based on the bestselling book The Kennedy Detail by Lisa McCubbin and former Secret Service agent Gerald Blaine.  It tells the tale of JFK’s presidency from the perspective of the men who guarded his life during his time in office, including on November 22, 1963. Both films are expected to be released by November, 2013.

One more expected film about President Kennedy is reportedly being produced by famous actor Tom Hanks.  With the working title Parkland, speculation has it set entirely in Dallas, the site of President Kennedy’s murder. Movie insiders say the film will document moments leading up to President Kennedy’s assassination and focus on Abraham Zapruder, who filmed the most famous images from Dealey Plaza.

Events of November 22, 1963 continue to draw significant public attention, underscoring the lasting effect of President Kennedy’s legacy and his tragic death.

Parkland:  Tom Hanks, Producer
One of these films will reportedly be produced by famous actor Tom Hanks and titled Parkland.  Current speculation has it set entirely in Dallas, the site of President Kennedy’s murder.  Movie insiders say Parkland will document moments leading up to President Kennedy’s assassination and also focus on Abraham Zapruder, who filmed the most famous images of the event.

Parkland is said to explore the effect of President Kennedy’s assassination on a wide range of Dallas area citizens, including a doctor, an FBI agent, Secret Service agents, a reporter, members of President Kennedy’s staff, alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s brother, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and amateur movie-maker Abraham Zapruder.

A Sequel to Oliver Stone’s Blockbuster ‘JFK?’

Director Oliver Stone is currently said to be in pre-production on what some have called a sequel to his popular film ‘JFK.’ The working title is ‘JFK: SECRETS NEVER KEEP.’ In the new controversial movie, Stone apparently does more than merely revisit territory covered in the first film.

Director Stone is recently quoted as saying “I haven’t fleshed it all out yet, but I am almost positive that this was how it all went down on November 22, 1963…”

Oliver Stone’s followup film on the JFK assassination is reportedly slated for a November, 2013 release.
