On JFK’s Assassination Anniversary – the 3 Big Lies Continue

This Life cover photo of someone purporting to be Lee Harvey Oswald holding the murder rifle has been debunked for years. Oswald’s face above the chin was pasted onto someone else’s body. Plus the shadows are all wrong. Yet see the caption …

Today, November 22nd, is the 54th anniversary of the assassination of President John F Kennedy.

And for weeks now, the government has been releasing large batches of long-secret JFK assassination records – but it’s been mainly hype as the documents lack any substantive content and “at least two-thirds of the never-seen JFK files that were supposed to be released — some 2,538 records — remain secret”, states a report from AlterNet.

But one thing’s for certain, much of the mainstream media continues the Three Big Lies of the assassination. For instance, several weeks ago, I watched and listened in astonishment as Chris Matthews of MSNBC repeated those lies without batting an eye. Matthews – a liberal pundit – has just written a book about Bobby Kennedy and feels he’s an expert on the brother John.

Here are the 3 Big Lies repeated by Matthews:

  1. The Warren Commission was right.
  2. Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy.
  3. And Oswald did it alone.

Just the opposite is actually true.

  1. The Warren Commission was not right.
  2. Oswald could not have shot Kennedy.
  3. And Oswald was not acting alone.

I have studied the assassination for a long time – since the 1970s – and am convinced (like most Americans) that there was definitely a subsequent cover-up . Four years ago, in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of JFK’s murder, I engaged in a massive study, reading everything available – and there was a wave of new books, articles and videos back then – and ended up writing a 2-part series. (Here’s Part 1 and Part 2.)

Noting how the anniversary was dealt with by some media, I wrote:

Continuing the country’s exoneration, a number of television stations have been broadcasting films and videos about our history from 50 years ago. And now we can safely announce that  CNN has just joined the History Channel and the National Geographic channel in continuing the cover-up, as all three networks fully back the Warren Commission and Oswald as “the lone assassin”.

Despite the plethora of “new” material back then, I cautioned readers:

Of course, if you really want to get down to brass tacks, you have to pick up the original and seminal critique of the Warren Report, a book by attorney Mark Lane, “The Rush to Judgement“.  His “Plausible Denial” picks up and updates the data surrounding the unsolved murder.

I focused on the mass media’s role in continuing the cover-up, concluding that the corporate media wants us to believe the Warren Report.

Yet the Warren Report was debunked decades ago! By whom, you might ask? Well, by Congress itself.

In the late 1970s Congress convened an investigation of the Warren Report, and created the House Select Committee on Assassinations.  The Congressional investigation concluded in 1979 that Lee Harvey Oswald was not alone and that at least one shot came from the Grassy Knoll.

I wrote:

Between CNN, the History Channel, and National Geographic at least – as well as numerous books and current articles, it’s almost as if the Select Committee and its conclusions never existed.

Yet, one thing about time, it allows for continued research – and there’s been a mountain of research on the assassination and cover-up these past 50 years.  Here’s what most researchers have concluded:

  • Oswald was involved in intelligence services on behalf of the U.S government;
  • There is an overabundance of evidence that demonstrates that Oswald was framed for the assassination;
  • that he could not have physically pulled it off – from firing a decrepit rifle within a few seconds, to hitting a moving target, through tree leaves, to getting down four flights of stairs to end up in the lunch room, to returning to his boarding house, to shooting officer Tippet.
  • There’s also evidence that someone was impersonating Oswald for months before the Dealey Plaza incident.
  • Oswald did not act alone;
  • The existence of a cover-up, of a conspiracy – is proved by a combination of  the successful framing of Oswald coupled with successful attempts to suppress vital evidence;
  • Individuals within the federal government were involved and / or aware of the conspiracy;
  • Two very powerful men in government-  besides JFK and his brother Robert, the Attorney General – , were Vice-President Lyndon Johnson and FBI Director J Edgar Hoover; both men were close friends of the other, and both were facing the probable ending of their careers either before or after the upcoming 1964 Presidential elections. Kennedy was going to fire Hoover after his re-election and probably remove Johnson as his running mate (also Johnson faced several significant scandals and even possible prison time).
  • Hoover, the FBI head, had nearly veto power of whom Johnson appointed to the Warren Commission. His agency was the only investigative arm of the Commission and controlled the flow of evidence to the Commission’s staff.

Another chilling aspect of studying the assassination is simply the extraordinary high number of mysterious deaths of material witnesses or people with information. Author and assassination researcher Jim Marrs determined that:

“In the three-year period which followed the murder of President Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald, 18 material witnesses died – six by gunfire, three in motor accidents, two by suicide, one from a cut throat, one from a karate chop to the neck, three from heart attacks and two from natural causes.”

The London Times hired an actuary who concluded that on November 22, 1963, the odds against these witnesses being dead by February 1967, were one hundred thousand trillion to one.

Jim Marrs also states:

Because so many of the these deaths involve persons either working with or connected with the CIA or other domestic intelligence services, the Agency has gone to some lengths to discredit the idea of mysterious deaths plaguing assassination witnesses.

Also crucial to note is how the deaths are grouped. Much of the early ones occurred during the period that the Warren Commission was conducting their investigation – and just afterwards. Also some deaths came in the late 1960s as New Orleans DA Jim Garrison was doing his investigation.  As Marrs says:

Other suspicious deaths occurred during the mid-1970s, as the Senate Intelligence Committee was looking into assassinations by U.S. intelligence agencies. And finally, another spate of deaths came around 1977, just as the House Select Committee on Assassinations was gearing up its investigations.]

Near the end of my Part 2, I included a list of people who had connections – even tenuous ones – to the assassination and who are dead now, listed by date of death. Check it out.

Also fascinating is the infamous Life magazine cover photo of someone supposedly being Oswald holding a rifle in a backyard. Look at it and see if you can see the contradictory characteristics of the photo the government and mass media wanted us all to believe was real.

But beyond all of this, here we are – still in the midst of the 3 Big Lies.

Just don’t accept it – most Americans, as I said, don’t. And most of all, don’t repeat these lies to your children – they deserve more.
