@hothotheat do you work with Taylor Swift??(kidding jeje)pretty interesting stories you guys, thanks! ive never been caught up in this affair until nowMy only thoughs on them is how stylish Jackie O was, best dressed first lady before Michelle Obama
Fascinating comment thread–thanks to all who chimed in. Going to see if I can track down the Dr Crenshaw book. Fascinating about the rifle too.
The inconsistencies and head-scratchers keep me interested. Afraid, though, if the actual truth is ever released, we won't believe that either.
As a side note, did anyone read the Stephen King book 11/22/1963? The premise is that LHO did act alone (of which I am not 100% convinced), but it was an interesting read nonetheless, and entertaining (esp. if you like wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey stuff).
Jackie did not climb out of the back out the car because she was scared or because she wanted to "collect brain matter" there was a very visable, big peice of the presidents skull that flew off during the shooting she retrieved it in order to hold it onto his head to prevent more bleeding. This, to me, showed what a truley brave, smart woman she was.
No. It won't bring him back. Plus I work with someone who's a Kennedy Family BIG FAN. All she f*ing talks about is how perfect they are right down to having a portrait of JFK and Jackie in her office (I'm not kidding). I'm sick of hearing about them.
Land Manatee- I hope I don't stir anything up BUT re: 911, my RA in college was from shanksville and was home when flight 93 'crashed' she lived close to the field and said she didn't buy that a plane had crashed.
But on the other side, I have read articles in my local paper about a man who was in charge of removing bodies from trees after the crash. Who knows for sure but wanted to chime in!
Oh wow..his brain is missing?
Jackie was actually crawling out of the car to retrieve pieces of her husbands brain matter that had exploded out of the car. Atleast that is what she said.
I can agree with Jesse's theory. JFK wanted peace. Lots of defense money is nothIng but fraud. Same this day. Cut defense spending now. That's why the economy is so bad.
What was the year that was said in the JFK movie with Kevin Costner? I keep forgetting it. I'm looking forward to finding out.
I've been at work all day reading about JFK and I'm looking forward to reading all the books recommended. I don't believe LHO did this. He was the patsy. I think it was the mob. They killed MM too! And Bobby.
Yes I care. LBJ gets my vote on this. Probably in cahoots with the Mob too.
Also, I always thought (was told) Jackie was climbing over the back of the car to retrieve JFK's brains.
Actually going to Dallas and the grassy knoll is quite eye opening and very sad but interesting. I recommend it to anyone interested.
Probably the same peeps who killed Marilyn also…
The George Bush connection intrigues me. Any of you seen the documentary on netflix about it ? No matter,never believe the official story.
Yeah, Leah, I read the book about the LBJ conspiracy several years ago (did the reporter who was thrown out of the press corps write it?). Decently convincing, though probably not the most likely scenario.
I should also add that my dad, who was a mean SOB and took pride in being ultra cruel, said that LBJ was the meanest, scariest SOB he ever knew. My dad worked at the White House from JFK through Clinton, and so that is saying something.
Wow… So many interesting theories/ info from all you guys!
My dad was a member of the White House Press Corps, and he said that everyone there believed that LBJ was involved in JFK's assassination. A reporter who was going to come forward with info exposing the plot was thrown from an airplane.
I don't know who did it…the mob. our own government, Cuba, whatever. But I will always believe the shots came from the grassy knoll, because when I first heard the news, on television, while making lunch for my husband, that was the report. Also, the description of the body stated that the back of the head was blown away, and that does not happen if you are shot in the back of the head.
a bullet, end of story.
Wow that was fast! I'm so glad someone got it!!! Hahahaha <3
*LOL @ Nova* Best. Movie. Ever!
There were no gunmen at all. His head just did that. I call it the "No Bullet theory."
I'd like to know as well! I am a lover of conspiracy theories (and have been known to believe in one or two) and I think LHO was a brainwashed/ programmed patsy. I have alos read that the JFK assasination was an Illuminati blood ritual, but I'm not willing to go quite that far….*L*
Definitely the Mob….they helped put him in office by delivering important votes in key states and they felt betrayed when Robert Kennedy went after them with a vengeance while he was AG. What I don't understand is why the investigation felt it had to cover for the mob.
We did. Our government is one giant cesspool of fuckery and zero morals. We are all just pawns being moved around the board.
I would like to know. And as mich as I abhor conspiracy theories methinks LHO was just the fall guy.
@BProfane: I also thought someone would attempt to assassinate Obama and am pleased to be wrong as well. Even if my choice of president did not win I certainly would not want them dead. Sad that there are crazies out the who feel otherwise.
I think Jackie crawled over the trunk because that's where secret service…i.e. "safety" was.
On a curiosity level I guess I care. I'm not sure I buy a conspiracy, but neither would I be shocked if there was one.
Having said that, I don't think it really matters one way or the other 50 years later. The people who may have been involved are (for the most part) long gone and knowing wouldn't change where we are today as the path is already well worn and irreparable.
Ok I'm not deleting/editing but missed a few things in my post up there.
that guy in the bookstore spent probably 30 mins to an hour telling me in DETAIL about the rifle, how it fire how it was constructed and what it would have taken to do what oswald was purported to have done. He said JFK's death was a professional hit and told me in detail why he said that. I had cold chills after those conversations, he was very quiet, and very soft spoken very analytical.
The same establishment that killed RFK and MLK. It's all a conspiracy!
I'm with you!!
Funny, I read a Stephen Hawking quote today – "If governments are involved in covering up the knowledge of aliens, then they are doing a much better job of it than they seem to do at anything else."
I know it's about aliens but I think it applies here. Governments are just not very good at keeping secrets (see: Wikileaks). I think LHO did it.
Lee Harvey, with backup he didn't know was there, and then was PISSED off when he found out there was backup.
You are stupid, y'all.
The answer is obvious.
The illuminati. Who else?
I was at LIFE magazine as an intern when they were doing the 25th anniversary issue of his death, reprinting all that coverage and photos (and the Zapruder film was still in the darkroom vaults). Those still photos definiely show him first being flung backward, his head and all, shot from the front, and then being shot from behind and his head and body being thrown forward.
I think it was the mob. LHO just a fall guy. I still care and that's one of the mysteries I want solved before I die. Deep Throat was another one, but at least I know the answer to that one!
The government has succeeded in covering up what really happened. it's not the first time a government has done it and it won't be the last but it makes a mockery out of democracy because I believe the people have a right to know what others are doing on their behalf. When records are sealed for such a long time that no-one will be alive who was around at the time, then you know they are hiding something big and something ugly.
Interesting tidbit: my father regularly delivered groceries to Oswald's mother in the late 50's to around 1960, when he was drafted. This was when you called in an order and someone delivered your groceries and left them on your counter if you weren't home. This was in Ft. Worth, TX.
I had a college professor who's claim to fame was that he taught a summer school class, and LHO was a student who dropped out during the course. Dr. Duncan said he was surly and sat at the back of the class.
me too, b.profane.
I am happy Obama's made it so far.
I would like to know the truth about what happened to Kennedy, tho I don't really think it would change anything about where we are today. It is one of my earliest long memories of hearing of it at school that day, and watching all the coverage on television the days afterward. My mom and I had a scrapbook where we kept clippings of the news coverage. I have no idea what happened to that scrapbook when my mother passed.
