VIEW Issue #12, Page 2, Mar. 2009: No, Probably just a simpleton. I've recently been researching The Crime of the Century. Okay I misspoke, since the Cover Up of the Century is actually more accurate. The crime has never been in question, as it was witnessed by millions of Americans on their black and white television sets.
If you are my age, or older the question is "Where were you when our beloved 35th President was murdered." I was in Kindergarten in Long Beach, California. I still recall the skywriter and his cryptic message of a rifle and a briefcase against the beautiful blue sky. I’m guessing someone explained to me what the briefcase was, due to my age. I'm sure I could identify the rifle as playing army was my favorite past time. I can also say with some certainty that we had no idea what it meant until we arrived home to see the stunned and grief stricken adults. The What; our 35th President gunned down in the streets of Dallas, Texas (The Where).
The Who, Why and How have befuddled our country for years. The Russians, Cubans, Mafia and (in quieter whispers) LBJ and the CIA. Immediately after the killing, the patsy was captured and the disinformation mills were working overtime.
I'm sure most people have heard of the Cuban Missile Crisis. This incident as well as the cold war indicated Russia. The Bay of Pigs (Operation Zapata) as well as numerous assassination plots against Fidel Castro implicated Cuba. Robert Kennedys' prosecutorial zeal of the Mob brought organized crime into the discussion. Much less attention was given to a group much more capable of such a feat. JFK had fired the top three people in the CIA, when they kept him in the dark about Operation Zapata. The Deputy Director Charles Cabell approached Kennedy a couple of hours before the operation was to start to request permission to obtain U.S. air support. Kennedy deferred and the mission failed. Another group that failed to attract much speculation, outside of Texas , were the rich and powerful oil barons.
H.L. Hunt was the wealthiest man in the world, at that time with a personal fortune exceeding four with a “B” billion dollars. This was a group of fervent anti communists who felt that JFK sold out to the Russians and was soft on communism.
The story goes like this. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, Kennedy made a deal with Khruschev. In exchange for the US missiles taken out of Turkey the Russians would take out the Cuban missile silos. This sounds like a win/win to me, but the zealots at the time viewed it differently. Kennedy also thought the oil depletion tax credit the rich oil people received was an unwarranted gift (corporate socialism?) and he was planning on reducing the 27 percent or eliminating it altogether. This would have cost this special interest group tens of millions of dollars. These oil men were also diversified and big players in the Military Industrial Complex (MIC).
Eisenhower warned the people of the U.S. in his last presidential speech (Jan. 17, 1961) about the MIC, as they had become very powerful in affecting US policy. Said Eisenhower, “We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex... 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.”
LBJ needed the President dead more than anyone. LBJ's previous criminal activity, concerning a scam of farm subsidies for cotton, threatened him with imprisonment. He was also made aware, by his friend and long time aid Bobby Baker, that the Kennedys planned to drop him from the Democratic Ticket in the 1964 election. It seems like George Smathers, of Florida, was more to their liking. According to Madeleine Brown, LBJ's longtime mistress, Johnson told her the night before the assassination, "After tomorrow those bleeping Kennedy's will not embarrass me again." It is also reported that he asked John Connally, the Governor of Texas, to ride in his car rather than the Presidents car. Governor Connally was wounded in the assassination. Last but not least in this group was the most powerful lawman in the country at this time, Director J.E. Hoover of the FBI. I don't believe Hoover participated in the murder but was the key player in the cover up. I believe the director was notified there would be a hit on JFK the night before. It is well documented that Hoover stayed in power through blackmail and intimidation. Hoover used wiretaps to get dirt on anyone of political influence and held the unsavory info over their head like the Damocles Sword. Despite being gay at a very unpopular time for gay rights, no one dared mess with J. Edgar. He could smear and destroy almost any powerful person of his day at a whim.
It is well documented that JFK was a playa, sex addict or however you want to label his many indiscretions. Hoover made a veiled threat to Kennedy that he had evidence and the Kennedy’s were pretty intolerant of his blackmail. Hoover believed, and probably rightly so, that the Kennedy's would force him to retire on his 70th birthday, the mandatory age for federal civil service.
There was an alleged meeting the night before the assassination attended by some of the major players. LBJ, Nixon, Clint Murchison, H.L. Hunt and Hoover were said to be amongst those present. If you were a fly on the wall of that room you definitely would be in jeopardy, like so many of the witnesses who have died under suspicious circumstances.
The reason Hoovers' participation has been so important is the FBI failing to properly investigate all of the mysterious deaths that followed. When Oswald was arrested Hoover said, "We got our man." This was a way to let his veteran agents who were chomping at the bit to do their job know that they would incur his wrath if they refused to stand down. Stand down is a term used in military and law enforcement circles that means not to perform whatever they would normally assume their responsibilities to be and submit to the higher authority.
At this point you have been given a lot of common knowledge about the case. Most of the groups that would have benefited from Kennedys' demise have been named. In the next issue I will name several people whom I believe could have shined a bright light on the plot and given the American people some measure of justice. The Kennedy Family and the American People are the victims of this evil plot. If you can't wait until the next issue and your curiosity is getting the better of you, Google JFK assassination plot.
A little warning concerning the disinformation that was provided to the main stream media by those who sought to cover their tracks. One of the most blatant examples of this is a book financed by H.L. Hunt called Khruschev Killed Kennedy. I encourage you to read books like this as they illustrate how far reaching and far fetched the cover up was and still is to this day.
Why would the worlds richest man finance such drivel?
