JFK revelations surface

  • Follow Letters

Significantly, New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson analyzed every book published on President Kennedy in a recent New York Review of Books. The most recent book on his assassination informs us that JFK made secret overtures to Fidel Castro one year after the Cuban missile crisis and two years after the Bay of Pigs invasion.

We also learn that the president thought of bringing back U.S. troops from Vietnam during his second term in office and ordering the removal of the ineffective South Vietnam President Ngo Dinh Diem. At one point President Kennedy confided his fears of his generals to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev who was experiencing similar problems. JFK once told intimate friend Ben Bradlee, executive editor of The Washington Post, that his first advice to his successor will be to watch out for the generals. Thurston Clarke’s recently published book JFK’s Last Hundred Days suggests that Kennedy’s own generals played a role in his assassination.

There is no question that then-Vice President Lyndon Johnson was aware of everything in advance, but thought there was nothing he could do without creating pandemonium. He then followed the generals’ orders to send more troops, which resulted in the death of thousands of American soldiers.

Finally, the truth is marching home.

No, It Was Jackie

No, it was Jackie Kennedy who had JFK killed. She had caught syphilis from him that he had caught from Marilyn Monroe and arranged to have him shot. Of course Jack had always known that Caroline was actually Bobby Kennedy's daughter and the forces to assassinate Bobby were put into action before JFK's death. LBJ thought the whole mess of them were morally decrepit and had told Air Force generals to "accidentally" drop a nuclear bomb built in Augusta on Hyannis Port. The pilot of that plane was from Mass and instead dropped it in Savannah Harbor being the Yankee he was.

Thanks so much for the laugh this morning.

It's not often the AC publishes a comic strip without the accompanying pictures but it did this morning.

Another attempt to put an unjustified halo around JFK presidency.

But...there is probably more truth than not in Rivers post...the Generals & LBJ possbly did know all about the plan to kill JFK..we are truly naive about that.

at the Adams family reunion last year

Morticia became overly fermented
and lit it slip that during one of her "excursions"
with JFK that he had let it slip that he and Elvis (skinny)
were really best buds and NASA had populated and lit the
dark side of the moon and that the moon was really hollow
and heated too
and he and Elvis (skinny) were going to live there forever
in the zero gravity of the conspiracy theorist's head
and that Elvis had only gotten fat because of the
undeveloped cloning technology available at the time
and Uncle Fester said it's okay to take the blue pill
from a friend and it's okay
for the friend to get the blue pill
from a stranger

Godoy is a progressive. Obama

Godoy is a progressive. Obama is a progressive. Obama is a liar. Well do I have to explain the obvious. Liars have no credibility-why would I believe a progressive who knows anything about "truth" because they will lie for their agenda. And this from a conspiracy nut.

The truth?

Do you really expect that from the government or liberal media? Great Friday morning chuckle!

I'm afraid that the truth will not come out until we reach our final judgement. A bright light, where you can conceal nothing. There will be answers to all your questions instantly, and the truth on everything will be known to all. Personally, I really look forward to meeting JFK! He's been my hero since I was a kid.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1960

President Eisenhower said leaving Office back in 1960.

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the
military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together. "

53 years later and a dozen or so conflicts around the world.
I sometimes wonder if we have been sticking our nose into too many things that benefited only European countries and not the USA.

The left never wanted to believe a communist killed JFK.

As a matter of fact if you read the Warren Commission Report, which is a gloss over, you will not see Oswald identified as a communist. If JFK were killed today the first thing the media would want to print is the killer was a Tea Party member, who listened to Rush, watched Fox News, and had an autographed picture of Ted Cruz.

Those are just the "truths"

Those are just the "truths" that YOU want to see Joaquin. I can show you just as many books about Kennedy and his assassination that present just as valid "truths" that point in a myriad of directions.

The only "proof" in ALL of these books is that John Kennedy was a pretty inept president and his "Camelot" was mostly a myth. He made a lot of people mad at him from Fidel Castro to the mob and many others in between. Somebody killed him and we do not know who and probably never will. But as Hillary Clinton says..."What difference does it make now?". Of course, Hillary WOULD say that considering how many past associates of her and Bill have come up dead from unexplained reasons.

Godoy is Cuban and big fan of Castro. Most progressives like Godoy believe Castro is really a good guy and the reason communism has failed in Cuba is because of the US and the embargo.

It's no secret

Gen. Curtis Lemay and JFK hated each other but after years of research I've come up with Someone shot JFK from the schoolbook depository whether it was Oswald or not who knows. 3 shots. 2 hits one miss. There was no magic bullet.

I do understand but I find Godoy LTEs to be comical. It is pathetic that a person would come to this country enjoy the success then try to spread their progressive/Marxist ideas.

Ain't that the truth! I know some Cuban boat children, put in the waters by parents to go to relatives in America when it became apparent Castro was taking over. They are nothing like Godoy.

Historians

I have heard it stated that quite often history is told by the perticular historian's view point. If this is true, then anybodies theory about the JFK assassination could be correct. My theory is that Johnson hated JFK's lifestyle and he hated the fact that JFK was going to terminate our involvement in Veitnam. Johnson hated the notion that would allow communisum to take over yet another country. Therefore, a good theory would be that Johnson had JFK assassinated in order to put his morals and anti-communisum plans into effect!

Kennedy isn't dead-nor Elvis.

Kennedy isn't dead-nor Elvis. They are both "alive"-thats the conspiracy. They hated their lives and faked their own deaths to escape bull crap like this. Makes about as much sense-actually given the "bull" it makes more sense. In fact Marilyn is not dead either-she faked her death to live with Jack in secrecy. You know Kings have given up thrones for women. Course there is no place to hide here on earth so "my kind" gladly transported them to a friendlier environment in a galaxy not too far away. Yeah that's the ticket.

He could have been killed by his first wife, or the illegitimate child that he fathered with a prostitute....or one of the men that his wife Jackie was sleeping with during his presidency.
