Kennedy Assassination goes unnoticed

"USA Today: Kennedy Assassination Anniversary Little Noticed

Monday, 22 Nov 2010 12:46 PM

In a sign of changing times, few newspapers Monday did substantial stories for the 47th anniversary of the death of John F. Kennedy in Dallas, according to USA Today. With the notable exception of The Dallas Morning News, no newspapers had a front-page story on the assassination that changed the course of American history.

As if to underscore this new reality, the News story, which appears on the lower-half of the page, focuses on how The Sixth Floor Museum, at Dealey Plaza, site of the assassination, is trying to adjust to explaining events to an increasing number of visitors who were not alive in 1963.

"We're at a pivotal moment right now," Nicola Longford, the museum's executive director, tells the News. "We're changing from memory to history."

Museum curator Gary Mack tells the newspaper that photographs of the president in an open convertible are a shock to many young visitors.

"Younger people who are used to greater security measures since 9/11 look at photographs of Kennedy riding in an open car and say, 'That was crazy. Why would he do that?' " Mack says. "Well, it wasn't considered crazy at the time, and that's something we have to explain."

But assassination and the unanswered questions behind it still offer fodder for Hollywood. Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to produce and star as an FBI informant helping to solve the murder of John F. Kennedy in "Legacy of Secrecy," based on the 2008 Lamar Walden/Thom Hartmann book."

This is a reasonably perceptive article about the changes since the assassination. His particular reflections on the black and white world reflected by black and white television would make McLuhan proud.

I also went to the funeral with five of my friends and football team mates. It was a weekend that I will never forget. I also realized that it meant that Goldwater would probably be defeated which did not bode well for America.

JFK Assassination Anniversary: Eternal Flame Flickers but Still Burns

"The answer – even though I have not been asked the question in perhaps 15 years – is high school chemistry class. My uncomprehending teacher tried to continue with the planned experiment involving a Bunsen burner even after word spread that John F. Kennedy had been shot in Dallas.

Forty-seven years later, it all seems part of another world defined by black-and-white television, the black-and-white certainties of the Cold War and black-and-white racial relations. Even if he had served two full terms as president, JFK (born in 1917 and afflicted with Addison's disease) almost certainly would be long dead by now. Few remain who were close to John Kennedy (aside from his daughter, Caroline) following the deaths of Ted Kennedy last year and "ask not" speechwriter Ted Sorensen three weeks ago."

I was in my high school band class when the announcement of JFK's assassination came over the intercom speaker. We were playing a tune called "Bold Frontier." The similarity to JFK's "New Frontier" gave some students the creeps.

I went to watch the burial at Arlington. If I'd known you were going to be there we could have met up. Main memories are of his wife, who stepped down to the coffin to accept the flag, DeGaulle, who wore bright blue, and Cardinal Spellman, who wore bright red. Everyone else was, from that distance, indistinguishable in black. I had no such insight about Goldwater, though it turned out to be true. I recall a certain mostly-unspoken eagerness to blame the whole thing on "right-wing extremism" until Oswald was arrested and word of his background got abroad. Shapiro's observations about black and white strike me as silly.

Kennedy ssassination conspiracies were long ago gave way 9-11 and, more recently, the Chamber of Commerce, just as the Kennedy stories superseded Pearl Harbor and the Elders of Zion.

47 years to the day. It is a "cold" case. An unsolved murder. The truth will not be known.

Ghs,

I was in my first year of medical school in a gross anatomy lab when our professor came in and announced the plight of JFK. I had voted for JFK to be president because of his appeal.

Now I will post a link to what appears to be a compelling and plausible explanation:

http://beforeitsnews.com/story/199/920/LBJ_Killed_JFK-_After_44_years_the_sad_truth_is_revealed.html

"It is the melancholy law of human societies

to be compelled sometimes to choose a great evil

in order to ward off a greater evil."

-Lyndon Baines Johnson

The audacity of this politician is perhaps unequaled in all of history. To my way of thinking he is the personification of evil.

I disagree. I worked as a volunteer on the assassination project for almost one and one half years. I am personally certain that Oswald was not the "lone assassin."

Hugh C. McDonald, who was the head of Goldwater's security for the campaign wrote a book The Hour of the Blue Fox wherein he allegedly tracked one of the assassination teams members in Marseilles. The man's cover name was Saul.

Other books by McDonald include The Investigation of Sex Crimes, The Classification of Police Photographs, The Psychology of Police Interrogation and Appointment in Dallas.

Your "personal certainty" would not qualify as evidence in a court of law. Your personal certainty and $3.67 will buy me a regular coffee and an Old Fashioned donut at the local Dunkin' Donut ™ shop.

One of my Facebook friends actually mentioned that it was the 47th anniversary of Doctor Who. Actually that's tomorrow.

This was actually from the second episode. Oh well.

That would be quite correct. However, there is competent evidence that there were more than three (3) shots fired. All that I need to substantiate my statement that Lee Harvey Oswald was not the "lone assassin" is to prove that there were four (4) or more shots fired on November 22nd 1963 in Dealey Plaza. I can do that.

"I. FINDINGS OF THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON ASSASSINATIONS IN THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY IN DALLAS, TEX., NOVEMBER 22, 1963

'B. Scientific acoustical evidence establishes a high probability that two gunmen fired at President John F. Kennedy. Other scientific evidence does not preclude the possibility of two gunmen firing at the President. Scientific evidence negates some specific conspiracy allegations.'"

Investigators compared "impulse patterns" (suspected gunshots and associated echos) on the Dictabelt to 1978 test recordings of Carcano rifles fired in Dealey Plaza from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository and from a stockade fence on the grassy knoll forward and to the right of the location of the presidential limousine. On this basis, the acoustics firm of Bolt, Beranek and Newman concluded that impulse patterns 1, 2, and 4 were shots fired from the Depository, and that there was a 50% chance that impulse pattern 3 was a shot from the grassy knoll. Acoustics analysts Mark Weiss and Ernest Aschkenasy, of Queens College, after reviewing the BBN data, concluded that the probability that shot 3 was from the grassy knoll was 95%."

I knew the gentlemen at Queens College and their work was solid.

If I am not mistaken the Warren Commission reached their "Oswald the Lone Assasin" conclusion by inductive generalization, which, according to Karl Popper, is a myth.

ND,

my mother remembers being a kid when that episode was preempted by the assassination.

Everyone Else -

In the book "By Way of Deception" a former Mossad officer explains the Israelis recreated the conditions of the shooting. The speed of the car, position of the alleged shooter etc. Two of their best snipers couldn't make the shot. From what I recall the Mossad believes the Mafia ordered the hit and paid off crooked cops and politicians to keep it covered up.

Good book, btw http://www.amazon.com/Way-Deception-Making-Mossad-officer/dp/0971759502

Of course it was the Mafia. The commie Mafia, specifically. Under the the direction of LBJ. Look who became President immediately after the shot from the grassy knoll.

LBJ Killed JFK- After 44 years the sad truth is revealed!

"It is the meloncholy law of human societies

to be compelled sometimes to choose a great evil

in order to ward off a greater evil."

-Lyndon Baines Johnson

Some months ago, I received a package containing several CDs. There was no letter or note enclosed and there was no return address. Thinking it was a book promotion or some other commercial product for me to review, I gave it a low priority. The CDs remained on a corner of my desk for several weeks until I finally played them.

Instead of some commercial video describing the usual topics of "Cosmic Consciousness" or the "Hall of Records in Egypt," the CD had a number of somewhat rough segments containing interviews with some famous individuals. It also had some files containing scans of a variety of documents which were supported by the narratives in the interviews.

The topic of the collection was familiar to me -- the assassination of president John Kennedy. But the evidence and conclusion of the data was new to me. As I reviewed the CDs and checked the validity of the documents it became obvious to me that the murderer of JFK was known. Most surprising was the realization that the guilty party had been known for some time, but aggressively supressed. It was Lyndon Baines Johnson!

I spent a couple of weeks checking the sources and validity of the facts presented on the CD. Sadly, they are all true. It's a shocking story and a sad one. It reveals not only the evil that once existed, but reminds us of the evil that still exists in our country. It's a story about power, greed, sex and drugs. It's an American story. Here is what it told:

The Smoking Gun?

When president Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas in 1963, police and the FBI stormed the Texas Book Depository and located a rifle near an open window. The so-called "sniper's nest" had been made by arranging several cardboard boxes so as to both hide the shooter from anyone who might have been on the 6th floor at the time and also to support the rifle while the shooter took aim from the window overlooking the president's motorcade.

Investigators scoured the scene for fingerprints but the rifle and the boxes had apparently been wiped clean. The only forensic element that could possibly identify the killer was a partial fingerprint that was lifted from one of the cardboard boxes.

In an attempt to identify this print, officials took the prints of everyone who worked at the Book Depository, including the main suspect, Lee Harvey Oswald. They also compared this print to police and FBI agents who had access to the crime scene, but the print remained an enigma.

The print, as it turns out, belongs to Malcolm Wallace, the long time friend and associate of president Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Those unfamiliar with the methods of matching fingerprints may want to quickly review the protocols in a recent viewzone article on the subject. Unlike the visual convergence that is shown on TV shows like CSI [and the image above], most prints are not matched by this method. Fingerprints can become distorted, bent and stretched by the surface of various objects. The science of fingerprint analysis instead examines many unique features found in the fingerprint patterns. It is an exact science. A match is given a score based on the number of elements that are identical on any two sets of prints. A "match" is usually confirmed if there are at least 12 identical elements.

The prints from Dallas and Wallace match on 14 unique points. What's more intriguing is that a recent documentary on the subject obtained the analysis of a fingerprint expert who had done this type of work for 35 years. Upon his examination he found a correlation of 34 points. There's no doubt -- it's Wallace.

Who exactly is Malcolm Wallace?

Malcolm Wallace was born and educated in Texas. He was an intelligent man who graduated from the University of Texas and was quickly recruited by Lyndon Johnson and given a job at the Federal Department of Agriculture.

He first came to the attention of authorities when he was arrested in 1951, tried and convicted of killing a professional golfer named John Douglas Kinser. At the time, Kinser was having an affair with Lyndon Johnson's sister, Josefa -- and was also involved with Wallace's wife. Josepha was an alcoholic and drug user. She had a reputation for being promiscuous and, especially when she was high, she disclosed personal information and stories about Lyndon. It was feared that she might have already disclosed some illegal acivities about Johnson to Kinser, specifically certain activities he had engaged in during his race for the Senate.

Kinser was gunned down in his golf club. Shortly after, Wallace was arrested and found guilty of First Degree Murder. During his 10 day trial, Wallace was represented by LBJ's own lawyer. Johnson took a room near to the courthouse and had runners keep him updated on the testimony and proceedings. To everyone's surprise, the trial concluded with Wallace receiving a 5 years suspended sentence!

Later, in 1961, Wallace again was implicated in another murder for Johnson. This time the victim was Henry Marshall, an official with the local Agriculture Department who had been investigating an illegal source of Johnson's funding. In 1961, State Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation official Henry Marshall was investigating a broad series of fraudulent government subsidies -- amounting to figures in the seven or eight digit range -- allotted to Billie Sol Estes, a close personal friend of Senate Majority Leader then Vice-President Lyndon B. Johnson. Marshall had uncovered a paper trail that was leading him closer and closer to Johnson himself. It is reported that all the guilty parties held a meeting at which Johnson gave the order, "Get rid of him."

On June 3, 1961, Mac Wallace knocked Henry Marshall unconscious with a blunt object, fed the unconscious man carbon monoxide from a hose attached to Wallace's pick-up truck, then shot him five times with a bolt-action .22 caliber rifle and dumped him in a remote corner of Marshall's farm near Franklin, Texas. Justice of the Peace Lee Farmer pronounced the death a suicide and ordered Marshall buried without an autopsy -- over the protests of Marshall's widow. Despite this, the local authorities, under the influence of the Johnson gang, declared that he had "committed suicide."

Fearing that his sister might pose a threat to his political career, LBJ had more work for Wallace. On December 25, 1961, LBJ's sister, Josefa Johnson, was found dead in bed at her Fredericksburg, Texas home at 3:15 am. The cause of death was stated to be a brain hemorrhage. Josefa Johnson had returned home at 11:45 pm from a Christmas party at Lyndon Johnson's ranch. There was no autopsy and no inquest; the death certificate was executed by a doctor who was not present to examine the deceased. Ms. Johnson was embalmed on Christmas Day and buried on December 26th

We'll return to Wallace later in this article. But first, let's take a closer look at the "boss" -- LBJ.
