Speak out against the Silencing! Volunteer today.

November 11, 2013

I am looking forward to a great conference in Dallas for the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination. As you know, the City of Dallas is preventing Coalition on Poltical Assassinatiosn (COPA) from holding our annual Moment of Silence at 12:30. (http://politicalassassinations.com/2013/10/a-moment-of-silencing/). The City has gone to a great effort to silence those of us who represent 81% of Americans who know that President Kennedy was killed as a result of a conspiracy. We will be passing out a Broadsheet (11×17 newspaper)  in Dallas. The theme of the Broadsheet is that the political assassination of JFK was orchestrated at the highest levels of government, and it marked the rise of the National Security State and the Military Industrial Complex. We have independent funding for the printing (although donations may be requested later to help ensure a wider distribution). We need volunteers to distribute the broadsheet at the American Airlines Center where the tickets will be distributed, outside of the ticketed event, and anywhere else where the press and the public might be forced to gather when unable to get to the Grassy Knoll. We also want to leaflet this event: Noah’s Ark – Play Based on JFK and the Unspeakable…

JFK assassination: CIA and New York Times are still lying to us

JFK assassination: CIA and New York Times are still lying to us

Fifty years later, a complicit media still covers up for the security state. We need to reclaim our history By David Talbot President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy arrive at Dallas Airport, Nov. 22, 1963. (Credit: AP) We’ll never know, we’ll never know, we’ll never know. That’s the mocking-bird media refrain this season as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of America’s greatest mystery – the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson hijacked a large chunk of her paper’s Sunday Book Review to ponder the Kennedy mystery. And after deliberating for page after page on the subject, she could only conclude that there was some “kind of void” at the center of the Kennedy story. Adam Gopnik was even more vaporous in the Nov. 4 issue of the New Yorker, turning the JFK milestone into an occasion for a windy cogitation on regicide as cultural phenomenon. Of course, constantly proclaiming “we’ll never know” has become a self-fulfilling prophecy for the American press. It lets the watchdogs off the hook, and excuses their unforgivable failure to actually, you know, investigate the epic crime. When it comes to this deeply troubling American trauma, the highly…

Jefferson Morley: What we still don’t know about JFK’s assassination

Jefferson Morley: What we still don’t know about JFK’s assassination

By JEFFERSON MORLEY Published: 25 October 2013 05:12 PM Updated: 26 October 2013 06:50 PM The assassination of President John F. Kennedy endures as the pre-eminent mystery of American history. How a popular president came to be shot dead in broad daylight has never been explained by Washington in a way that the majority of the American people find credible. A new History Channel poll finds 71 percent of respondents reject the official story that one man alone killed JFK on Nov. 22, 1963. The tragedy in Dallas has been the subject of six official inquiries over the past 50 years, hundreds of books and dozens of documentaries. By common consent, the release of 4 million pages of long-secret documents since Oliver Stone’s movie JFK has clarified some disputes about the events leading to Kennedy’s death. Yet the new records also raise new questions. Secret CIA files: The nature of the CIA’s interest in accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald before Kennedy was killed is still shrouded in official secrecy, even after 50 years. The story the CIA gave to the Warren Commission in 1964 — that Oswald had attracted only routine and sporadic attention — is erroneous. Documents released by…

Response to Michael Smerconish “Here come the Conspiracy Theorists”.

Response to Michael Smerconish “Here come the Conspiracy Theorists”.

I read in disgust and frustration Michael Smerconish’s commentary in Saturday’s Dispatch, entitled “Here come the Conspiracy Theorists”  (reprinted, below), in which Smerconish does his best to marginalize anyone, including Governor Jesse Ventura, who doesn’t believe the official version of a lone nut shooter.  That the JFK assassination was a conspiracy is no longer a question. Despite 50 years of denial by our government and the corporately controlled media, Americans by an overwhelming majority do not believe the lone nut conclusion. The reason is quite simple: The evidence does not stand up to scrutiny and, in fact, leads to a much different conclusion. John Kennedy was killed because he was viewed by the Cold Warriors as being soft on communism. Kennedy explained his vision publicly at his American University speech in June 1963. He had opened back channel negotiations with Soviet premier Khrushchev (and Castro). Kennedy refused to fight the Vietnam War as demonstrated by his signature on National Security Action Memorandum 273, as well as his consistent opposition in meetings with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Kennedy wanted to allow third world non aligned countries a chance at self determination, he did not want to force the Congo, Indonesia,…

50 Years is Enough! Free the Files – Find the Truth Why Do You Need a Ticket to Get to Your Own History?

October 25, 2013

Dealey Plaza is a public park and a designated National Historical Site that has been open to the public over the five decades since President Kennedy was assassinated there. It was meant to encourage visitors to seek and discuss their own history and this critical event. In 1964, Penn Jones, a newspaper editor and early critic of the Warren Commission’s official version of the assassination, began to hold an annual Moment of Silence on the Grassy Knoll (North Pergola) lest we forget the injustice or let the case remain unsolved. At his request, the Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA) has continued the tradition since his illness and death in the 1990s. COPA has sought a permit since 2010 for our annual Moment of Silence this 50th anniversary year. We also speak truth to power about the assassination of President Kennedy, who was behind his murder and why he was killed to put others in power in the United States in an un-Constitutional coup. Instead, the Mayor of Dallas, Mike Rawlings reportedly instructed the chairwoman of The 50th Planning Committee, Ruth Sharp Altschuler, who claims to have “no authority in these matters” that he did not want “crazy conspiracy theory” on…

Dallas’s Disney World interpretation of the John F. Kennedy Assassination

October 15, 2013

The City of Dallas has denied Coalition on Political Assassinations the right to hold the annual Moment of Silence at 12:30 PM on November 22nd.  Instead, the City has created a ticketed event with the intention of honoring Kennedy’s life rather than discuss the circumstances of his death in the City of Hate. This denial of free speech is based entirely on content of the speech, as they have stated in meetings and documents. Conspiracy discussion is disallowed. Our first amendment rights have been abridged. The political assassination of President Kennedy was significant because he had moved to end the Cold War and  refused to fight the Vietnam War.  His death, at the hands of the National Security State (CIA, Military, and NSA) resulted in the rise of the Military Industrial Complex that President Eisenhower warned us about, and brought about the violent American Empire that we experience today.  John Kennedy envisioned a peaceful world, but a peaceful America no longer seems possible. Myself and others do not wish to be silenced in Dallas. We hope that most Dallas attendees will purchase the IndiVISIBILITY T-shirt, found here: http://occupythegrassyknoll.org/t-shirt-store, so that we can all show solidarity in Dallas. T-shirts will be…

The First Step in the JFK Cover-Up

October 14, 2013

by Jacob G. Hornberger October 14, 2013 I saw the new movie Parkland yesterday. While reviews are panning the movie, which isn’t too surprising given that it’s based on Vincent Bugliosi’s book Reclaiming History, which is a long rehash of the lone-nut theory posited by the Warren Commission, I wanted to see how the movie depicted a certain scene at Parkland Hospital, a scene that I believe was likely the very first step in a cover-up in the assassination. After President Kennedy was declared dead by physicians at Parkland, he was placed into a casket. A team of Secret Service agents then began removing the casket from Parkland with the intent of taking it to Love Field, where President Johnson was waiting for it to take it back to Washington. There was one big problem, however. Texas law required an autopsy of the body to be conducted by an official medical examiner. Therefore, the Dallas medical examiner, Dr. Earl Rose, informed the Secret Service team of Texas law and advised them that the body wasn’t going anywhere until the autopsy was conducted. The Secret Service team informed Rose that he was not going to conduct an autopsy and that they…
