THE 50th ANNIVERSARY MONTH OF THE MURDER OF JFK: SOME THOUGHTS
I must confess, I enter the blogging phase for the month of November, 2013, with reluctance and trepidation, for as most know, this month, and the 22nd of this month, is the 50th anniversary of the murder of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. I did not suspect, that as a boy of six, home sick from school that Friday, that I would literally watch a president be murdered, and later that weekend, his alleged assassin's murder. I did not suspect that, fifty years later, I would be writing this blog, and series of blogs, on the implications of that event, for the continued deterioration of American society, culture, and what remains of civil political discourse.
There remain those in America that, in all honesty and sincerity, still believe the official story. I have no quarrel with them, nor even with the more sinister shills in public life who still promote the official version in spite of the mountain of evidence that it was, and was intended to be, a tapestry of lies and coverups. To make my own position clear, I am on of the growing majority of Americans who believe there was a conspiracy to murder the president that day, one going very deep, and embracing a multitude of factional interests. I am also one, within that group, of a smaller subset of people who believe essentially that a coup d'etat was staged that day, and that on that day, an oligarchy took open control of the instrumentalities of power, and has not relinquished them since. Or rather, it reasserted its privileged position in the face of an administration that threatened to unseat it.
The implications of the coup hypothesis are, however, deep and profound, for ultimately, one of them is that the unresponsiveness of government institutions to the genuine wishes of the people can be rationalized: that non-responsiveness is the result of an oligarchical system, of a deep state that saw its privileged position threatened by the Kennedy Administration. There were, of course, scandals and deeply divisive issues in prior American history. One need only think of the populist movement, the election of 1896, and its ultimate denouement with the establishment of the Federal Reserve and the IRS in 1913. There was the infamous Teapot Dome scandal.
But the Kennedy assassination is different, for the reasons of what followed, the infamous and egregious examples of the fallout and blowback from that event. It qualitatively changed this country and its political culture profoundly for the worse. The prelude was Eisenhower's warning about the military industrial complex. The climax was Dallas, Texas, Nov. 22, 1963. The aftermath has been Watergate, Iran-Contra, BCCI, Nugan-Hand, the Savings and Loan Scandal, Waco, Oklahoma City, Ruby Ridge, and, of course, 9/11. All are manifestations of a covert culture of power and covert operations, of government by gunshot and and false flag ops. And the first shot, literally, in that transformation of the republic into an oligarchical state run by technocrats, military men, intelligence agency gurus, and financial paper shufflers and secret bookkeeping. When the ugly threat to promoted memes and oligarchical agendas occasionally occurs, that threat is removed. By scandal if possible, by "wet measures" if necessary. One can think of the more-than-suspicious deaths of US Senator Paul Wellstone(D-Minnesota), of Congressmen Begich(D-Alaska), Long(D-Louisiana), not to mention, of course, the murder of Robert Kennedy, and Dr. King. And on and on one could go.
Having been a boy when it happened, the event has stuck with me all my life. I remember Lyndon Johnson being sworn in, I remember Lee Harvey Oswald being murdered on TV while Ike Pappas, the CBS news journalist reported, stunned, on the event. I remember when the Warren Commission Report was excerpted in our local newspaper, with its cute diagram of the "Magic Bullet." I remember thinking we are being lied to, that something was deeply wrong.
Above all, I remember the comments of my family and its friends: no one... absolutely no one in my family or its circle of friends believed the official story. A kind of sullen gloom descended for days. There were discussions around the kitchen table with friends over games of cards. The concensus? All agreed the truth would never come out completely, and the reason why was that a fundamental change had occurred in the nature of government.
Happily, fifty years has proven at least a part of that prognosis untrue. The truth has come out due to the tireless and dogged research of literally hundreds of people who knew they were being lied to. Most people now believe the assassination was the work of a conspiracy. What most do not yet realize, are the deep connections of that event, via the same factions and interests of the deep state, to the other scandals that have been a feature of American governance and its "scandal per decade" since then. The only thing that has not changed is that the same corruption persist and has only deepened its divisive grip on the country. That grip tightened on Nov 22, 1963, to be sure. It has tightened even more in the decades since. But it is not yet total, nor complete.
That's why the Kennedy assassination still matters. And that's why it matters to drill home, over and over again, to all those who will listen, that it was the work of a massive conspiracy. Because once that is understood, people will start to understand why the system is so broken.
See you on the flip side.

I was 14 and lost my religion on the same day… Heard an excellent author on Tarpley named Joan Mellen. Got her “Farewell to Justice” the next day and read it in one (long) sitting . The most comprehensive work on the topic I have found (haven”t yet read “LBJ and the Plot to Kill Kennedy”) Also found 2 interviews by her on soundcloud.. real journalism and well done.
A new theory on the Kennedy assassination, ‘friendly’ fire by the secret service,
if an Australian retired detective is to be believed.
Some very interesting points made in this point of view ie: 2 kinds of bullets used, full metal jacket & hollow point, the latter being the “kill” shot.
jackie did it…..she was cia and it was not a friendly shot.
A perfect summation of that tragedy and its aftermath. I couldn’t agree more.
The US was hijacked, and I just call the perpetrators the Cabal at this point.
I was only one month old when this even took place so obviously I have no personal recollection of it, but both my my parents do and both can vividly recall where, when and what they were doing at the time they heard the news for the first time – just as I can recall where, when and what I was doing that stiflingly hot afternoon in 1980 when the news of John Lennon’s murder came through.
Lennon’s murder had the same impact on my age group as Kennedy’s murder had on many of you.
More & more news coming in
LAX was another staged event.
Thank you Dr. Farrell for the poignant blog on this 50th (hard to believe it’s been that long) anniversary. You did a great job of touching on both the societal and personal impact of this pivotal event…its meaning and ramifications.
I did not exit the womb until 6 weeks after the coup, so I have lived my entire life in an occupied country. Congratulations on your good fortune to have spent your first 6 years in the old republic.
JFK’s death affected people from all over the world. I was in Australia, and about to be married in two weeks’ time when I heard the news. I was devastated. I’d read the paper on the train to work in the morning and have difficulty stopping the tears…
I think in some way the balance of good and evil in the world was shifted that day, and many around the world new it, without understanding.
I have read several books on JFK, and the most important one for me was “Farewell America: The Plot to Kill JFK”, written in 1968, which was pretty hard to obtain – I have it in PDF form. (And checking on the name now I see it is priced between $72.39 and $212.52… how interesting as it’s a small book.)
It was originally published in France under the title “L’Amerique Brule” (America is Burning).
“Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years” by David Talbot (Jun 3, 2008) was also an interesting book.
I do wonder about the enormity of JFK’s sex crimes 🙂 He had osteoarthritis and was always in pain. He must have been superhuman…
I seriously wonder if all the sordid stories were not made up to tarnish the image the world had of the “Camelot” days.
I was reading the story of our own “dismissal” of PM Gough Whitlam via facebook this morning, and I notice the lies went on. It’s very hard to separate truth from fiction now. Here’s the link in case anyone is interested.
I’am reading Daniel Estulin’s fiction novel: The Octopus Deception. The plot revolves around the gold stolen in Operation Golden Lily. In investigating it, a team finds a corruption that leads to the highest levels of government/intelligence/military. They have no way of unmasking without compromising dozens of assets, currently in parallel operations – because the corruption is so pervasive. The amount of gold involved in Golden Lily was approx 1.3 million tons! In one bank, an investigative team found gold certificates in HUGE denominations, the smallest of which read 750MT!
As the investgation continues it begins to appear that the Octopus syndicate has factions within, fighting amongst themselves.
I’am just halfway through, and had to post…
Considering the two events of 1963 and 2001. The first one killed only one person, in 2001 three thousand people we killed, and yet both events had the same effect on a global scale.
I’d like to think that both events will be solved by some rebel journalists who get to the truth, but alas, it wont happen. The elites have done it and got away with it, it is a blot on the copybook of the world.
I am at a loss for words for what this world has become because of a few.
Great write-up Joseph! I totally agree!
We continue to breathe and waddle in the aftermath of that dirty deed and will continue to fill our lungs with its toxic rancidity until that darkness is ‘officially’ dispelled.
I was in California, Junior High, when the announcement came over the loud speakers. I remember the distraught, sickening feeling that engulfed and gripped my gut and the quiet tears that filled the bus as we wended our early way home.
In 1978, my wife and I purchased our very first home, near a lake, which was built in 1965 as a summer retreat. Not meant to be lived in year round, it was over the years slowly renovated to accommodate such living.
Not knowing at the time of purchase, to be discovered later, that it was Cecil Stoughton, John Kennedy’s personal live in photographer that built the retreat, whom I made my monthly mortgage payments to directly, and had the pleasure of meeting him and his wife when they detoured from participating in the creation of a documentary, to see the old place.
Cecil, reluctant to talk about that day, was seven or eight cars back in that tragic motorcade when a handful of brute minds decided to hold a private election through the muzzle of a gun, typical of the banana republic it has today evolved into.
a banana is the gun, and the black box yields it……it can be found in the crash site.
Look for Malcolm X for the location of the devil.
jedi, can you please explain what you mean by this?
“Look for Malcolm X for the location of the devil.”
I could write a novel on it.
In short research a place called Armana, they were manipulating DNA there.
keep in mind that the “cabal” was/is fighting a monarch/feudal system. A very distinct 2 class system. God men (Kings and Lords) vs beast men (fruit pickers and basket weavers). that system is being restored….
Once that objective is achieved, A world order if you will, then the horror/violence will follow. (or Utopia for the fairy tale ending, take your pick. although all life forms will choose self preservation when the going gets tough, so picking sides is futile, it will not effect the outcome)
The middle class in hind site, is “the problem” for a dialectic state…..among many other problems. Solutions are temporary band aids, and eventually become problems. The cliche of the road to hell is paved with good intentions comes to mind.
…..imo, too understand it you must go back to the “root” problem. The original sin and co sin. Manipulation of dna, false knowledge, psychological terror, trickery illusions, worship of false idols….all to control slaves who think they are free. Slaves are more creative, productive in the dream state….and easier too program too self destruct.
The devil is in the details.
The implicit scope and potential reach of a JFK Novemblog series is stupefying.
Perhaps, given a certain structural and organizational logic, this blog series may ultimately assume the form of “talk radio for the eyes,” as a supplemental release?
Just as the American Revolution happened long before 1776 in the farm fields, the crossroads, the tavern; wherever people gathered, it was in the air – set: waiting for the spark.
So were “they” set – waiting to take a shot(s).
The media played important parts in both.
In “our” revolutionary times there existed a peoples’ press. In our times, it’s a corporate press, an oligarchical press chorus, singing to the bouncing ball of their pay masters.
What a shame.
it is one thing to bite the hand that feeds you, …..shame doesnt encompass what “they” have done……furthermore, “they” are facing extinction.
Of course “they’ regard any sign of morality as weakness; afterall, they are the dark side.
when you go to the dark side, you become submerged, thats why Darth sounded like he was wearing scuba gear.
Once you go black you never come back…..genetically speaking.
funny him killing off the sand people, untill i found out sandy is slang for Scottish, a shortened form for Alexander.
Just Finished Star Wars/The Clone Wars Season 5 …(transmundane).
This is, of course, pre-Anakin, when the path was more well lit. But as time progresses in the series, darkness begins its mission creep. And once you go black, you can come back …spiritually speaking.
Genetically, though, would take a little engineering.
yes, despite my youth in NE Ohio I remember this day vividly as well; made such an indelible impression on me- gut feeling back then told me something/official story was not right; whole country came to a stand-still; and my last, favorite class of the day (band practice) was canceled (why couldn’t it have been phys. ed.? :-))
and learnng in the meantime that the Kennedy marriage was a completely arranged, loveless sham for the sake of JFK’s public image and that thanks to JFK’s insatiable womanizing, Jackie’s first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage because JFK gave her chlamydia (would tend to piss-off a pregnant woman)..
and if (IF!) my read sources are correcting in stating that Jackie was on the CIA payroll after her graduation from Vassar in order to infiltrate the Kennedy family (then throw in George de Mohrenschildt having at least a short affair with Jackie’s mom and babysitting the girl as a child- lot of dots to connect) then I think the following may have some validity (if, IF!) the following hasn’t been photo-shopped:
I disagree totaly with Lamont that the grassy knoll played no roll in this; of course it did; and forget the “Jesuit” bit- I think it goes much deeper-
please stay well Dr. Farrell and readers-
Larry in Germany
dont forget her future husband, Aristotle, gave her the horse that pulled his coffin…for spooky sneaky sneaky comedy value, named it black jack.
He gave the order to “pull it”……a term that rings a “bell”
absolutely, jedi- was unaware of the bit (if/IF true) about AO providing the equine support, macabre name of the beast and subsequent command about pulling the coffin (if there was even a corpse at all in this coffin- I tend to doubt it)…
and of course Jackie ending up in the tentacles of AO whose “book keeper” according to Mae Brussell ended up being Hjalmar Schacht…
the body in the closed casket was officer Tidbit, a jfk look alike.
Robert was purported as saying it didnt look like his brother. (Tibbet was buried the following day of the murder in a closed casket)….also the guy with the open umbrella, the limo stopped in front of a oak tree, the underpass (think headless horseman), the grassy knoll (lucas de nom lucere, no light comes from the grove), the village people in costurme, the ba”bush”ka lady ( man in womens attire filming from the other side of zapruder ..illumination) and the 6 floor of a book store. 666 mark of beast, books…read to forget (thanks robert) and on and on and on and on…..down the yellow brick road.
2 good movies to watch on this subject, ghostwriter and collaborators.
Have your remote handy too freeze the frames…as they say a picture contains a thousand words.
Of course this really has nothing to do with us serfs, it is theater for the controllers of this world and Gestalt psychology on any that get in there way. They also like to sink ships, still do actually….the recent cruise liner that sunk off of Italy…and I think the Edmund Fitzgerald was somehow connected with the jfk thing….there is a ancient Russian sailing ship, complete with preserved bodies of russian sailors in there red and white striped uniforms on that spot. I think that uniform is connected with the design of the American flag….just a hunch mind you…..Joseph Conrads novel “heart of darkness” makes mention of a English sailing manual, with Russian notations in it. The English language is based on Phoenicians, those ancient sea farers….biblically the pharisees?
Life sure got interesting with this internet.
no, jedi, his name wasn’t “tidbit” (although great analogy- rather humorous if the subject wasn’t so serious) but Tippet; supposedly the Kennedy look-alike- don’t know if the following has any validity whatsoever but you might want to check out Kerry Cassidy’s interview with a ceratin dude named Robert Morningstar (if I recall it was in 2011)- obviously still in her archives) who confirms this- if I recall correctly he claims to be a friend of Richard Dolan (?)- don’t know anymore- was so long ago-
in any case I think we can all safely assume the Kennedy casket was as empty as the official story-
This stuff isnt even the tip of the iceberg, more like a snow flake.
I know what his name is, humor help me see through the illusion.
Did you get a glimpse of Jackie carrying the doll, lambchop at Love field, getting off of Angel 1, carrying no doubt a bakers dozen of roses ….and then the gun powder smoke being seen and smelt by witnesses while the limo stopped between the 2 yellow markers on Elm street….where the nightmare occurred…..if I have some time I might photo shop a Jason with a hockey mask on holding a knife standing by George Bush, who was standing near Lee Oswald…..
Nobody is going to do Jack &*&^ about it…..might as well have a great big laugh and hope the children can make it a better world.
like Jack said in his epic warning…..”there is little value in ensuring the survival of our nation, if our traditions do not survive with it.”
That nation has not survived.
check lamb chops dress for gunpowder residue
jackie thought she was james dean for a day…and the color girls go poop poop poop poop poop poop.
people order our patties.
take a walk on the wild side
I was a Junior at Marion, IN High School. Our new school was the first in the state to have a closed circuit TV station, thus each room had a TV.
Upon the broadcast of the news from Dallas, we were notified to turn on our TVs in each room. We watched and listened in silent shock as Walter Cronkite reported the news.
When the bell rang, on the last class of the day, we filed into a hall that was usually noisy especially on a Friday. This time though, it was eerily quiet so you only heard the rustle of clothing as we walked to our lockers. We were all devastated with the thought of loosing our President.
Camelot was lost on that day.
