Solving The JFK Assassination: New Evidence Vs. Time Travel

9 Feb

Ask people what mystery they would most like to solve and you’re likely to get a wide range of answers. However, if you ask more than a few, solving the assassination of President John F. Kennedy is likely to be included on the list. 

JFK, Dealey Plaza, 11-22-63, 11-22-1963

Why? Because for many, some key facets behind the JFK assassination remain largely unsolved. For example, was there a second gunman? Did Lee Harvey Oswald pull the trigger? Was there a shooter behind the ‘Grassy Knoll’ fence? Was Russia, the CIA, the Mafia, the Military-Industrial Complex or Fidel Castro involved? Why was alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald killed by Mob afffiliate Jack Ruby before Oswald could fully talk? The list of never fully answered questions is long, indeed.

As one would expect, many approaches to solving this mystery have been considered. Of them all, there is one approach that is unlikely to provide answers. There is also one that is considerably more likely to provide answers. Let’s look a both. 

Time Travel
While time travel is not considered a deus ex machina method to solving seemingly intractable dilemmas, it shares some similarity with that ancient Greek approach of bringing in a hitherto-unknown force to provide a tidy ending. Unlike deus ex machina, which injects a most unlikely story resolution late in the story, time travel usually involves the necessary suspension of reality earlier on, in order to utilize unrealistic options that are not otherwise available.

This is not to belittle time travel. Time travel is a terrific format for entertainment, as witnessed by some outstanding films like ‘Somewhere in Time.’ So for escapist entertainment, if one suspends disbelief, time travel can be uniquely exciting. Yet if we’re intent on moving a step closer to actually solving the mystery of an event like the assassination of our 35th president, there is another option, which to many is far more exciting.

New Evidence
The use of new evidence is an approach that could actually advance the resolution of the thorniest problems…including the assassination of President Kennedy. Think of it this way. If a homicide detective truly wishes to solve a murder, time and again it is good detective work, including a hunt for all available new evidence, that is the proven recipe for success. Consider the uncovering of many noteworthy clues since the JFK assassination, like the discovery of never-seen movies taken in Dallas that day on November 22, 1963.

22 Nov

After more than 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.

We 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. Let’s not wait another fifty years.

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.’

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

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.
