John F. Kennedy’s Reburial

14 Mar

Many people know President John F. Kennedy is buried at Arlington National Cemetery, where an eternal flame burns day and night in his honor. Less known is the fact that President Kennedy was exhumed from his original burial site in 1967 and reburied. So why was this done? The president’s body was moved to better accommodate the large number of visitors to his gravesite.

Timeline
President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 and buried on November 25th in Arlington Cemetery. More than three years later on March 14, 1967, President Kennedy’s body was moved to another location within the same cemetery.  Also transferred with the president’s remains were those of his deceased infant children, Arabella (sometimes referred to as his unnamed daughter) and son, Patrick.

A crane was used to move the president’s vault-enclosed casket, which remained secured throughout the process and was never opened. The eternal flame was also moved. You can read more about the original design of that unique engineering feat here.

Consecrating the president’s gravesite on March 15th in a driving rain was Roman Catholic Cardinal Richard Cushing.  In attendance were President Kennedy’s family members, including his brothers Edward and Robert, plus Mrs. Kennedy and President Johnson.

Another little-known fact involves the original casket that carried President Kennedy from Dallas back to Washington, DC. That original casket was dropped to the bottom of the ocean in 1966.  Most people are unfamiliar with facts surrounding this event.  You can read more about that interesting story here.

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.

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.

Only One Thing Now Matters About The JFK Assassination

25 Aug

There’s been plenty of time for anyone with solid information to weigh in on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Think about it. November 22, 1963 happened a long time ago. Fifty years, in just a few months. Anyone who was an adult at that time is now eligible for social security. So what can we expect as we approach 11-22-2013? A startling new revelation?

The President and Mrs. Kennedy

No. If past years are any guide, what we’ll see this November will simply be more of the same, but with a convenient half century marker for the memory-challenged. That means lots of conspiracy talk. Perhaps a few so-called ‘witnesses’ who come out of the woodwork. Maybe even a deathbed confession. But none of it will matter. Here’s why.

Any testimony…whether it’s ‘first hand’ or even ‘insider knowledge’…will be questionable, at best. That’s because there have been hundreds of different books written since President Kennedy’s death and plenty of time for those with something significant to say to come forward. After this long, even genuine testimony by one who was there lacks sufficient gravitas to ‘move the needle’ and change what is now a predictably endless guessing game. As a result, only one thing now matters about the JFK assassination.

Solid physical evidence is all that remains to alter the check-mate of uncertain culpability in the JFK assassination. Short of such new evidence, the endless web of intrigue that is the JFK assassination will continue. The question of who killed JFK is now a profitable cottage industry. There is simply too much for current players to gain by speculating about what really happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963.

But all is not lost. This mystery can still be solved. All that’s needed is the uncovering of new evidence. That evidence could be in someone’s attic or dresser drawer. Think that’s crazy? Find out why it’s not…here.
