Book Review: The President And The Provocateur by Alex Cox Its a conspiracy theorist's dream. Forget UFOs, the assassination of John F Kennedy, (JFK) the 35th president of the United States, on November 22 1963 remains to this day the most pored over, talked about and controversial event in modern history. No matter how loudly the official version stating Lee Harvey Oswald fired the only shots and acted on his own is shouted from the rooftops, there have always been other voices shouting other theories almost as loudly. Depending on who you talk to JFK was killed because of a communist plot hatched by a combination of KGB and Cuban interests or a right wing conspiracy of anti-segregationists, the Secret Service, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and right wing members of the military. Of course there are various offshoots of each and even wilder and more outlandish theories to be heard as well. One goes as far as saying Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon, the 36th and 37th presidents respectively, were ...
On this day, 51 years ago: Lee Harvey Oswald, the man accused of killing president John F Kennedy was shot dead. http:/…
I never thought I'd get a lesson in history from the movies Xmen. So today I learned Magneto killed John F Kennedy not Lee Harvey Oswald.
In the 1960's the American President John F Kennedy was murdered. By who? This question is still a conspiracy to this day. Many believe it was a man by the name of Lee Harvey Oswald, others believe differently. Oswald was arrested for the murder of JFK but did Oswald really kill him? Think of this. If the man did it why was he killed exactly two days later by another man when Oswald was deemed to have "worked alone". Now think of this. John F. Kennedy's murder was not said to be an act of terrorism. The definition of terrorism is the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims. Think even further, In former Yugoslavia, in the city of Sarajevo, a man named Franz Ferdinand took control of the city that was not his, the people did not want him there and sent troops to control another country who wanted him out. Are his actions not actions of terrorism? He invaded Yugoslavia and took the city from its own country. They just wanted him out of their own country. A man stands up and declar ...

Mason's conversation w/ me last night. He loves history & math. Out of no where (as usual) he says 'Moma you know the presidents that have been assassinated were killed by someone who didn't like what they were for. Like Lincoln was killed by John Wilkes Booth because he was against slavery. John F Kennedy was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald (born in the 1930's) for no reason. They were killed for no good reason.not enough to kill someone for'. Of course he went in to more details which were correct. But to hear him go on & on is so funny. Lord then he goes in to the wars.I'm not a history person. LOL. BUT if you ever want a lesson just let him know! He has an 'old soul'
Forget Conspiracy Theories, The Truth Is Often More Shocking by Tomasz Pierscionek Sun 1st Dec 2013 The 50th anniversary of John F Kennedy’s assassination gave the debate surrounding his death a new lease of life. Various theories interweaving the usual suspects: the Mafia, the CIA, anti-Castro Cuban exiles and the disillusioned, perhaps mentally unstable, ex-marine Lee Harvey Oswald, have resurfaced. Though extensive measures are taken to safeguard the President of the United States from enemies domestic and foreign, the job remains perilous. Of the 44 current and former serving US presidents, four were slain (Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William Mckinley and John F Kennedy) and a further two (Ronald Reagan and Theodore Roosevelt) were injured in assassination attempts. In addition, more than a dozen others presidents were targeted during their time in office. Few professions, perhaps with the exception of the military, carry an almost 1/7 risk of death or injury. The circumstances of Kennedy’s d ...
Veteran newsman Bob Schieffer recalls the day John F Kennedy was shot, including how he gave Lee Harvey Oswald's mother a ride.
So for 50 years or so John F Kennedy was shot by lee Harvey Oswald my mom thought and she watches this stupid show and now she's hooked on a Secret Service guy shooting him In the back of the head
22nd November. On this date in 1990 Margaret Thatcher resigned as PM a great day in the history of the UK. Also on this date in 1963 US President John F Kennedy was assassinated but I do wish they would stop insulting our intelligence by still telling us it was Lee Harvey Oswald who murdered Kennedy, anyone with a brain knows that was just a cover story. But I suppose the REAL truth will remain hidden...
50 years today US President John F Kennedy was murdered. Was it by a lone assassin Lee Harvey Oswald or was he acting a…
It all started when I had to write a story set in the past for a school project. I chose 1963 and started learning all about it. Plenty happened that year. The Profumo Affair came to light. The Beatles scored their first number one hits. The Great Train Robbery took place in August. And later that month Martin Luther King delivered his famous I Had A Dream speech. But it was the shocking death of John F Kennedy on November 22, 1963, that captured my imagination. His death and the images of it that were flashed around the globe became one of the defining moments in 20th century history, with many able to remember exactly where they were the moment they heard the news or saw those pictures for the first time. I was not even born then – but I started gobbling up books about the assassination. I studied the famous grainy camera footage shot by Abraham Zapruder. I read the Warren Commission report, which concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone, and watched Oliver Stone’s film JFK, which suggested ...
Today was a great day at the White House as president Obama honored Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and 13 others with presidential medal of freedom created by former president John F Kennedy 50 years ago. This Friday will mark the 50 anniversary of president John F Kennedy's assassination in Dallas, Texas. Despite the government's conclusive investigation, many people still believe that Lee Harvey Oswald was not the killer. Well, you decide that on your own folks.
I still believe that Lee Harvey Oswald is not the person who assassinated President John F Kennedy.
50 years ago today -- the anniversary of John F Kennedy's assassination -- I was a 10th grade student in Aberdeen High School, Maryland, in a class entitled "Problems of Democracy." How ironic. Any other fellow Eagles there? What was the name of our teacher, who had been called out of class and came back ashen and crying, to tell us of the Kennedy shooting. Thus began a long weekend of watching it all on TV, including the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald.
Remembering JFK. Can't believe November 22 1963 when John F Kennedy was assassinated. Still say the whole investigation was all botched up. I still say Lee Harvey Oswald didn't do it. Consider the facts. The most crucial if he was shot from the book depository building how come body didn't slump foward instead slumped backwards? The grassy noel is where the shots came from. It was all a conspiracy. This is the one case that will never go away.
Just wondering how many people actually believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination of John F Kennedy. If you read this please comment I do if you believe it or I don't if you don't believe it.

So now the conspiracy behind John F Kennedy's murder has been solved. There were two gunmen not just Lee Harvey Oswald.
Assassination caught on Standard 8mm film The Zapruder film shot in Dallas in 1963, capturing the assassination of President John F Kennedy is regarded as the most important piece of 8mm film footage ever captured. The film was a goldmine for its amateur super 8 photographer. He made 3 copies, selling one copy to Life Magazine for $US150,000. One copy was given to the US Govvernment for investigation and he kept the other himself. One frame, however, frame 313 was kept secret for 12 years. This frame showed the head of the ex president rebound in such a way that the bullet could only have come from Lee Harvey Oswald and proved the identity of the killer of the most powerful man in the world at the time.

Scapegoating and the blame game THE term scapegoat has its roots in biblical times. The Old Text describes scapegoat as a goat that was cast out to the desert as part of the ceremonies of the Day of Atonement. Since this goat was banished to atone for the wrong doings of the ancients, the expression scapegoat has over time evolved to mean a subject that is singled out to take the blame for the faults of others. In modern usage, an individual, a group or even a country, subjected to deliberate negative treatment or blame, can be labelled a scapegoat. And in the world today, herds of scapegoats can be found in the corral of finger-pointing. When President John F Kennedy was assassinated, the shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald, was believed to have been set up to take the fall for the hit but he was killed (by Jack Ruby) so quickly in the aftermath that the truth behind the shooting died with him. Shortly after his arrest, Oswald reportedly protested his innocence, saying: “I’m a patsy.” Later, following an in ...

“Check the shooters of John F. Kennedy and Jerry Ford, who got shot at twice. Look at the men that shot Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and George Wallace. They all had political motives and they all had guns. And if you’re not against this movement, you’re with it.” — MSNBC resident *** Chris Matthews, claiming that anti-gun control people are in favor of assassinations. Yes, Tingles. Let’s look at those shooters: John F Kennedy assassin: Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald was a self-described Communist who attempted to immigrate to the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War. Oswald received a government subsidized, fully furnished studio apartment in a prestigious building and an additional supplement to his factory pay—all in all, an idyllic existence by working-class Soviet standards. After returning to America, Oswald befriended 51-year-old Russian émigré George de Mohrenschildt, a well-educated petroleum geologist with intelligence connections. On April 10, 1963 ...

Never forget Sept 11, 2001. Hard to believe it's 11 years already. I can remember how afraid I was, called my kids, had to hear their voices. I remember kneeling while filing paper work and just shaking. The only other time i remember being so afraid was seeing Lee Harvey Oswald shot on television the Sunday after John F Kennedy was shot. That was 1963 and I was 13 years old.
Trivia Bits. There are several fascinating similarities between the assassinations of American Presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F Kennedy - what ones can you name? Answer: Both were shot on a Friday while with their wives. Both were shot in the head from behind. Lincoln became president in 1860; Kennedy in 1960. Both Lost Children while at the White House. Both successors were named Johnson, both Southerners and both in the Senate. Andrew Johnson was born in 1808; Lyndon Johnson in 1908. Both assassins were themselves assassinated, and both before trial. Both assassins were known unusually by three rather than two names: John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald. Both assassins were southerners, by birth or sympathy (Oswald was born in New Orleans; Booth indentified himself as a 'southerner' although technically was from Maryland, part of the Union - thanks P Pappas). Both Presidents' names have seven letters. Both assassins' names have fifteen letters. Booth was born in 1838 or 1839 (sources vary) and O ...
Today I stood in Daeley plaza where Lee Harvey Oswald shot and killed President John F Kennedy. As I looked up at the Sixth story from where the shot was fired, It seemed as if to be a testament to true evil in the midst of this world. I mean the shear audacity alone to be able to aim and shoot somone, much less a president, seems astounding to me. The good news is that there is a God who desires to welcome all who desire him no matter what a person has done. (Best part of the day, 9 hours in the car with Adrie Gitchel my best freind and travel companion)
