Just so you know I cannot control how this appears because my sites are often are hacked because of the subject matter…Obviously I did not want a spire of words and pic’s but it is out of my control.
This was the day the nation was restored to solemnity,
One would hope to sanity.
This was the day America went to bury its President,
The world to bury a leader.
As if this is sane?
Or this? ————>
Or how about Jackie changing her voice to Marilyn Monroes.
Is that normal?
I would call it DERANGED.
Here is a video and time code about this new voice told by Terry Moore:
Terry Moore says: “When I watched the tour through the White House I really laughed because I had met Jackie. My husband had dated Jackie Kennedy and um and I had met her several times. And I when I met her she didn’t have that voice. And I thought, whoa! (laughs) You know, I mean she just love loves Marilyn Monroe and she’s copied the voice.”
Is that normal?
Charles Collingwood of CBS News is the reporter in that video with Jackie. So why in the world does he act like he is above the insanity
when he must have been aware of her
“alter ego” and “alter voice”?
It’s still and quiet, no wind as the members of the family and close friends move out of the White House. The Attorney General and Senator Kennedy.
And now the procession as it comes out the gate a scene from across the street in Lafayette Park where a crowd has waited a cold clear air here now for several hours.
Turning now into the East Front Plaza stopped at the base of the steps to the East Front.
Mrs. Kennedy in the veil of heavy mourning the two brothers-in-law in formal mourning coats
Now the military guard is bringing the casket out to the East Front
Crossing the intersection of 11th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue now the caisson
jet black moving …….drawn by the seven white horses followed by the riderless black horse. Flag draped casket now in full view of the crowds standing 3 and 4 deep here along Pennsylvania Avenue, the Avenue of the Presidents.
…….above the square the bell of St. John’s Episcopal Church tolls slowly
female voice on this you tube says in a high pitched voice:
Mrs. Kennedy gets out
Now in the background
the bag pipes of the Black Watch ….?…joined here the mourning….?…..
..?..out moving out
from the White House.
Now, the cassion approaches the West Gate
followed by the personal flag of the President of the United States
and the riderless horse.
the Attorney General Mrs. Kennedy and Senator Kennedy behind other members of the family and President Johnson…..and then in cars the first of the dignitaries.
And then, marching along behind ….heads of state in no particular formation, just walking ad lib and members of the White House Staff and people from the White House grounds here some of them falling into the procession to join the walk to the church.
Only one other woman besides Mrs. Kennedy is scheduled to walk in this procession,
that is Queen Fredricka of Greece.
Is that normal?
Her future queen.
Makes sense to me!
Did Mrs. Kennedy not like women?
I guess women just didn’t fit in with her plans except, of course, the Queen of Greece.
Is that normal?
The dignitaries from the countries all over the world.
without their wives
Is Jackie considered to be their honorary mother, girl friend, wife,
now that President John F. Kennedy
has been dealt with sow, sow, sow very efficiently?
Many of them well recall President Kennedy’s words at his Inaugural Address
when he said:
My fellow citizens of the world
Ask not what America will do for you
But what together we can do
for freedom of man.
If you can call them that! (Men, that is.)
I would say they are very undignified and spineless, but obviously under her spell!)
He left out a part of that quote, but I’m sure there was a
very good and reasonable excuse
Mrs. Kennedy and her two children Caroline and John Jr. the Attorney General Robert Kennedy just behind her.
Being greeted now by Cardinal Cushing an old friend of the Kennedy family.
(and an admirer of Billy Graham and vice-versa
and probably a mutual friend of Maurice Tempelton, too
Isn’t that how Jackie first met JFK?)
Is that Nixon?
If you get a chance please read about
The Cardinal ascends the altar.
And will now recite the first hymn or chant of the mass.
The song of the funeral mass pleads for eternal rest for the dead and reminds us that all that is flesh and blood must come before the throne of God.
Now comes the most important reading of the mass: The proclamation of the Holy Gospel.
The Cardinal prays that he may be worthy to perform this sacred task.
I guess this reporter knows latin,
because I sure would never have been able to figure that out.
All stand to demonstrate this respect for the Word of God.
(That they love to alter.)
Reporter translates the Latin:
As we offer our fruits and praise to God.
We pray to God for John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the servant of God
That he may be given everlasting rest.
In a moment the Cardinal will invite all to join with angels in unceasing prayer for the throne of God.
Unceasing eh? Give me a break. Let’s be honest now.
Do they really offer unceasing prayer to the Throne of God?
To fully take part in the Holy Sacrifice
and to do what our Lord wants
The congregation receives the sacramental body of Christ in the hands of the priests.
At the end of this morning’s Funeral mass the Bishop spoke and gave quotations from Mr. Kennedy’s own speeches and from his favorite passages of scripture, but there was not scope enough to encompass the man as the country remembers him. There was the sense of grandeur that the office bestows on any man who occupies it, the sense of history that was especially strong in him. His awareness of the world and it’s vast and changing horizons. What this service could not take in, because it was an occasion of death, was the feeling of life that was so strong in him and which was felt so strongly in what he said and did. It was the thing that outraged many people and delighted many others in him. This was the man who swam in the very mainstream of life, the games people played, the songs they sang, the books they read, the jokes they laughed all, were part of his own experience. He was young and he was the picture of life. This afternoon this feeling still clung to the memory of John FItzgerald Kennedy as he was carried in death from St. Matthews Cathedral to Arlington Cemetery.
Outside of St. Matthews Cathedral the casket bearing the body of the late President now emerges into the sunshine.
Cardinal Cushing now sprinkling Holy Water over the coffin and kissing the flag.
Just behind the coffin come the immediate family,
The Call To Arms as the caisson bearing the coffin of the late President is now drawn slowly by six silver white horses down Rhode Island Avenue toward Connecticut and the procession from
The St. Matthews Cathedral,
the solemn procession begins.
Here’s the turn by the caisson on six white horses.
Now th er caisson is on the Memorial Circle
There is the caisson again making it’s way into the cemetary. And so this stately, magnificent, majestic funeral procession has passed the Lincoln Memorial across the Potomac River for the final resting place of our 35th President.
New reporter reports:
The head of the procession has just entered Arlington Cemetery. Ready? The largest and certainly one of the most beautiful military cent cemeteries on er earth. Through the gates go the caisson. Now the caisson moves almost to the point at which it will be stopped and the casket of John F. Kennedy be borne to the gravesite.
The band plays The Star Spangled Banner
These are the bag pipes of the US Air Force Bag Pipe Contingent sounding off as the casket is removed from the ..?…
Now the casket has reached the graveside.
Jets fly by.
…………?…..in honor of the late President.
Presidential valet/ballet? takes its position. Mrs. Kennedy is closest toward us.
And now the ceremonial drill.
Emanuel of the Irish God? (not sure if that was what was said.)
In the name of the Father, and of his Son and of the Holy Ghost. Aye men.
Yep, that’s right YES MEN!
Let us pray.
Cardinal Cushing prays a prayer out loud but hard to understand his voice. So you have to hear it yourself on the you-tube if you want to know what was said.
I sure can’t understand it.
I doubt anyone there at the time understood either.
That is so helpful, too. But he has style, even if he can’t be understood. I’m sure that gives him the upper hand.
The man behind him is a bit snobbish but I guess when you can stand behind Cushing ….
It’s kind of Cushy!
So Is Cardinal Cushing the CUSH of the bible?
And I’ll I bet Putin of Russia is Put of the bible.
The land if Ur is the Ur-al mountain area in Russia?
Makes sense to me!
The soldiers fold the flag
Jackie lights the flame and passes it to two of the brothers (I think Robert and Ted) to do the same.
And the President belongs to the Ages
And now this fourth day of the nation’s ordeal is drawing to a close. We have lived through much history in these four days and as this fourth day ends the emphasis has subtly, but importantly shifted.
These four days began in consternation and grief
as the President was struck down
and the nations struggled to comprehend the tragedy.
They ended tonight with the focus on the new President surrounded at a great reception by the leaders of other nations and their emissaries. That is the way nations survive. The President may die, the Presidency must not. It is the mark of stable and successful nations that they order the succession of leadership in this wise and there is no struggle for control or faltering of direction. This must be so.
But it has put a terrible burden upon Mrs. Kennedy these last four days. She has had to transcend her own heartbreak and what must have been her own desire for solitude to play her public roll in the transition of power that had been so cruelly struck from her husband’s hands. Noone else had it in his power to give her strength, but in some profound way she gave strength to the nation and the world will not soon forget the image of that proud and beautiful young woman to whom faith has dealt such terrible blows doing what she had to do, unbroken and dry-eyed. (?) Yet she sniffled.
Thus the nation continues, tomorrow the kings and princes and men of state will depart, the wheels of government will turn and all the threads of national life will be picked up, but everything will not be as it was for something has happened in these four days beyond the demonstration that our system is capable of an orderly transition of power.
There has been a drawing together of our people under the
compulsion of a shared experience.
That’s the important thing! SOLIDARITY….right?
The political experts who never sleep
have brought up a number of technical factors
which they believe have greatly changed the political situation
in which next years elections are going to be held.
But there is another factor that they have not mentioned
we have been read a terrible lesson in the products of hate and malevolence
which Chief Justice Warren said in his eulogy yesterday,
have eaten into the bloodstream of American life.
They have also eaten into our politics.
I talked earlier about Chief Justice Earl Warren and his possible relationship to Rick Warren.
Chief Justice Warren was the head of the Warren Commission
which tucked this assassination under a rug with the help of Double Day Publishers
and Jackie Onassis who worked for Double Day Publishers
who helped in her fashion.
But in these four days there has been a revulsion against them. Not simply against the presumed politics of the President’s accused assassin, but against all the forces of unreason which have possessed us. By it’s brutality and senselessness the assassination of the President has served to put forth for the time being at any rate our politics in a new and more reasonable perspective.
For a time under the shadow of this tragedy our political dialogue may be a healthier conversation. That would be a fitting tribute to President Kennedy. He has striven for that and an auspicious climate for President Johnson to take up his task.
This is Charles Collingwood
CBS News has presented
THE FOUR DARK DAYS FROM DALLAS TO ARLINGTON.
This is the CBS Television Network
It is said that the human mind has a greater capacity for remembering the pleasant than the unpleasant, but today was a day that will live in memory and in grief. Only history can write the importance of this day. Were these dark days the harbingers of even blacker ones to come or like the black before the dawn shall they lead to some still as yet indiscernable sunrise of understanding among men that violent words no matter what their origin or motivation can lead only to violent deeds. This is the larger question that will be answered in part in the manner that has shaken civilizations seeks the answers to the immediate questions who and most importantly what was Lee Harvey Oswald. A world’s doubts must be put to rest. Tonight there will few Americans who will go to bed without carrying with them a sense that somehow they have failed. If in a search of our conscience we find a new dedication to the American concepts that brook no political, sectional, religious or racial divisions. And maybe it may yet be possible to say that John Fitzgerald Kennedy did not die in vain.
That’s the way it is,
Monday November 25th, 1963.
This is Walter Cronkite.
But not really!
CBS News, of course, will stay on the air live throughout this day to keep you up to the minute on the latest developments in the assassination of the President and in the inevitable aftermath that will follow him.
Mrs. Kennedy was with the President uh in the same car. She was not hurt.
The President’s mother and father were told of the that the President was shot by a workman in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts where they are. The report came to them before it was known that the President had been killed.
Man in the background takes a puff of a cigarette!
Odd that a workman would know about the shooting and death of JFK
before the parents knew.
I guess the workman worked for someone that would know.
They never reveal the name of that workman. Maybe puffing is a clue.
Reports were that neither the President’s father, former Ambassador Joseph F. Kennedy or Joseph P. Kennedy rather, nor the President’s mother, had any comment to make when told of the shooting.
The President’s father is now a semi-invalid as a result of a stroke a few years ago and he was napping when the word came. The President and Mrs. Kennedy had planned to spend Thanksgiving Holiday at Hyannis Port next week.
We will have a live switch to the United Nations uh video
This pops up on the screen for a second or so. I’m sure it means something ….
just not sure what OR why this was inserted! Here is a little about that title:
“Anatole de Keroual is captured by the British in the Napoleonic war and imprisoned in the dungeon of Edinburgh Castle with six companions. Floria Gilchrist, coveted by the fortress commander, Major Edward Chevenish, falls in love with Anatole, and he with her, but Chevenish refuses Floria’s plea for a pardon for Anatole unless she agrees to marry him. Anatole engineers an escape from the prison, and goes to London to straighten out affairs of the estate of his uncle, Viscount Victor St. Ives. There he is apprehended and put on trial for murder.”
Back to Charles Collingwood:
only Adelai Stevenson at the UN accepting condolences.
There is no soun sound to this but the United Nations like other institutions is uh adjourning its deliberations to pay honor to the President of the United States.
Pope Paul in Rome has been informed of the President’s death.
Cardinal Spellman there in Rome for the Ecumenical Council, his voice shaking with emotion said,
“I am saying the Rosary for him now.”
‘ The Cardinal said that President Kennedy’s death …..
President Kennedy, of course, a fellow co-religionist of Cardinal Spellman.
The Cardinal said, “it was a great loss to the country and to the world.”
Cardinal James McIntyre of Los Angelos and Cardinal Ritter of St. Louis called together the student priests of Rome’s North American College to recite prayers for Kennedy.
Cardinal McIntyre said that Cardinal Ritter and myself were having dinner there in Rome.
It’s dinnertime there, because of the time difference.
When they heard the astounding news of the President’s death we are shocked, grief-stricken. Our hearts are pained.
I’m suspicious of their alibi!
Hardly anyone else tells where they are
at that time
and/or what they are doing unless they were at the scene of the crime. Seems very presumptive!
The name Ritter makes me think of John Ritter the actor who starred in a weekly comedy called ”Threes Company.”
What seems stranger to me is that the person who hands Jackie Kennedy or her double the Lamb Chops Puppet over the fence line at the airport in Dallas a half hour before the assassination of President Kennedy looks very much like John Ritter with a hat on his head. He also looks like the man in the picture that I found of Billy Graham and two friends at Wheaton College. The pictures of both are in the same articles/posts linked below. Check it out:
(Both are similar posts!)
West Germany Chancellor Ludwig Eirehart who was to have visited President Kennedy on Sunday was informed of the President’s death while on the way back to Bonn from Paris. “The news fills the German people with deep grief,” said Chancellor Eirehart. “All those who had the fortunate opportunity to make the personal acquaintance of President Kennedy, in particular the people of Berlin where of course the President had recently visited, are deeply grieved in this hour.”
The Premier Designate of Italy Aldo Morro said,
“his stature as a politician in his great country and on the international scene was growing
in these years of a cor courageous policy of renewal.”
“The reason for which he was struck in a mad way
raises President Kennedy
even more on the moral plane
as a great defender of man’s dignity and equality,”
said the Italian Premier Designate in Rome.
French Premier George Pompedoui exclaimed, “It is atrocious. It is frightful. I am overwhelmed.”
In Madrid, a foreign office spokesman said, “It is horrible, absolutely horrible, a most barbarous thing. Everyone here is horrified.”
And thus international differences, disputes, are swept away in the moment of shock, stun, grief.
The Italian News Agency Tass in reporting on it’s wires to it’s subscribers the death of the President asserted that he had been killed by a right wing American extremist. There is no confirmation of that. A man has been arrested in Dallas, a 30 year old white man who was carrying a gun. We know nothing of his political persuasion. But Dallas, Texas is considered a center of conservative philosophy and finance. It was on Oct. 24th that Adelai Stevenson our Ambassador to the United Nations, whom you saw a moment ago receiving condolences of representatives of other countries to the United Nations, that Adelai Stevenson making an appearance on United Nations Day in Dallas was spat upon by one heckler and struck with a placard by another. It was believed that uh the strong emotions which run in Texas and other parts of the South may have been part of the context of attitudes which resulted in the tragic occurence today.
It is believed that the President’s body will be moved shortly to Washington. Traditionally, funeral services for Presidents who die in office are held in the Capitol. A Presidential Spokesman, a White House spokesman told newsmen that Governor Connally who had been riding in the same open limousine with the President had been wounded in the right chest. Connally ha was rushed into surgery in the hospital for a 2 hour emergency operation. He is said uh to be in serious condition, but the doctors say that his vital forces are strong. (licks)
A Lieutenant of the Secret Service, Lieutenant Kominski, said that the assassin’s weapon appears to have been a high-powered army or Japanese rifle of about 25 caliber. The rifle had a scope sight on it at according to the Secret Service Lieutenant. (licks) The entire building where the sniper was located was evacuated and people working in the building at the time of the shooting were questioned.
This morning President Kennedy had telephoned Vice President John Nance Garner who had been Roosevelt’s Vice President, as you remember, congratulating him on his 95th birthday where Vice Presi where former Vice President Garner lives in New Valdi, Texas. And according to this report Garner’s end of the conversation went this way God Bless you Mr President. You’re my President and I love you. I hope you stay there forever. Thank you, Mr. President. God bless you. The words of former VIce President John Nance Garner 95 years old in Texas this morning. One of the last telephone calls that President Kennedy apparently made.
This is what we know of the assassination as it took place this morning. President Kennedy was traveling in a motorcade through the streets of Dallas before a a generally enthusiastic crowd, in some places a conspicuously enthusiastic crowd of a quarter million people. With Mr. Kennedy in the open limousine, the White House Bubble Top, which is so familiar to those who have seen the President on television or in person as he travels throughout the country. With the President were Governor John Connally of Texas, Mrs. Kennedy, and Mrs. Connally. Suddenly there were shots. An eye witness said that he saw them, saw them, fired from a window in a warehouse building overlooking the route from downtown Tallis Dallas out to the Trade Mart where the President was to appear.(licks) Bullets hit Mr. Kennedy in the forehead and Governor Connally in the chest. The two men were seen to slump into their wives arms. Neither Mrs. Kennedy nor Mrs. Connally were hurt.
One report has said, still not confirmed, that one of the Secret Service men accompanying and guarding the President was killed by the gunfire.
Then convoyed by Police the limousine raced off at top speed to Parkland Hospital which was 5 minutes away. Meanwhile Police and Secret Secret Service agents moved in on the assassins searched the building and an arrest of one man armed with a rifle is reported.
The President and the Governor were taken to the hospital’s Emergency Room. The President was not moved from there and died there. The Governor was moved to an operating room and after an operation is reported in serious condition, but the doctors appear to be hopeful.
Dallas motorcycle officers who were ranging along beside the cavalcade took off across a field in the direction from which the murderer apparently had fired. One officer raced to the foot of a nearby railroad embankment and climbed to the tracks above gun in hand. No one knew quite where the shots had been fired for quite a long while. Apparently they were fired from a building and not from one of the knolls which rose above the road.
White House Secretary Press Secretary the acting Press Secretary Malcom Killduff said that the President’s body will be flown to Washington this afternoon.
The Dallas Sheriff’s Department said a rifle had been found on a staircase on the fifth floor of the building near the scene where it is now believed the from where the shots were fired. It was a 7.65 Mouser, German rifle familiar to those who served in WWII. The German made army rifle had a telescopic sight, one shell was left in the chamber, three spent shells were found nearby. Most of the witnesses most of those who were in the cavalcade as they attempt to recollect the sudden and confused events which took place say that they heard three shots which uh checks with the fact that three shots had been fired one still found in the Mouser with which the assassin was apparently armed.
Democratic Senator from Texas Ralph Yarborough who like most other Texas Politicians these days have been engaged in hot political infighting there was riding three cars behind President Kennedy and he told newsmen in a choked and emotional interview (the young man at CBS Studio coughs in background) that you could tell that something awful and tragic had happened. Senator Yarborough said that I could see a Secret Service man in the President’s car leaning on the car with his hands in anger, anguish, and despair. I knew then said Sen. Yarboroughthat something tragic had happened.
Charles Collingwood reporting:
We continue to get reports from foreign countries as the word reaches the Chiefs of State and simple people in other countries of
the death of the American President.
As is always happens on these occasions shock ahh is the dominating note of the reports from abroad.
The slip of the tongue ” Shock ahh” reminds me of “Shock and Awe”!
What is odd about this is that there is a man that seems to be casing the reporters, especially Walter Cronkite in the CBS News Room in earlier reports looks like a young George Bush Jr.
“Shock and Awe (technically known as rapid dominance) is a military doctrine based on the use of overwhelming power, dominant battlefield awareness, dominant maneuvers, and spectacular displays of force to paralyze an adversary’s perception of the battlefield and destroy its will to fight. The doctrine was written by Harlan K. Ullman and James P. Wade in 1996 and is a product of the National Defense University of the United States.”
I wonder if James P. Wade is related to Henry Wade?
I tried to find young pictures of George Bush JR., but had no luck. The reactions of the CASING PACING MAN to certain subjects or words used by Walter Cronkite such as et and just his odd behavior in the first few hours after the assassination of JFK seem to be Texas sensitive. George Bush is a Texan. Probably just a coincidence! Although his dad was a leader of the CIA in that time period when President Kennedy was assassinated, I think, although Pres. Bush Sr denies it? Even his body language seems similar. The fact that George Bush was evangelized by Billy Graham and Billy Graham appears to be a participant also seems odd. Another interesting link George Bush said that when he looks in Pope Benedict’s eyes that he sees God.
Pope Benedict and his brother George also are participants and their picture was taken with President Eisenhower and a young Joseph Ratzinger is represented in that picture as being the Chief of the Secret Service, Chief Rowley. Not only that both are in the background of the Manhattan street man interview in the post following called
starring Amanda Plummer and Ruth Gordon of Rose Mary’s Baby. So I guess they are involved in some cap-a-city, as well.
The late Rev. David Wilkerson at the airport in Dallas also seems to be involved in some capacity with this affair.
The pastor of Highland Park Methodist Church in Dallas, Texas – Dr. William Dickinson Jr who also looks like some kind of high official of either the Secret Service, CIA, or Police who arrives at the scene of the School Book Depository directing other officials which occurs before he arrives at the Trade Mart an hour later to “give a word” and/or the BENEDICTION at the end of Part 5 of this series.
The Second Vatican Council of the Roman Catholic Church just happens to be occurring in that same year and the beginning of the Neocatechumenal Way and Opus Dei.
Another person who gives his whereabouts and who he is with at the time of the assassination, ie an alibi, is Billy Graham in a book Billy Graham wrote called Just As I AM which I wrote about in the post called:
which also includes a whole bunch of interesting activities at the airport in Dallas and very strange behavior of Secret Service Agent Jack Ready/Billy Graham, Jackie Kennedy, Secret Service Agent Roy Kellerman and others which I hope you will take time to read.
The skiddish/skittish behavior of the CBS Reporters in the Newsroom in New York which I believe was a takeover of the Press at that time, the blackout of Dallas at the first hour of the incident, in other words, it was a COUP.
The puffing of Billy Graham and now George Ganswein, the Pope’s personal secretary. Ganswein’s resemblance to Randolph William Hearst who had the Press puff BIlly Graham and was or is said to have been a Nazi Sympathizer and many other things. His initiative for the World Youth Organization. Now the push to invite the World Youths and anyone else to PASS THROUGH the Magnificent Portal at Notre Dame in Paris at the Courtyard of the Gentiles. Then there is 911 and the forfeit of privacy for National Security’s sake. the abuse of the Press, Ecumenicalism, Secret Societies, which was expressed by President Kennedy before he died and not to mention, but I will anyway, the death of his brother Robert Kennedy and JFK’s son John F. Kennedy Jr and their close ties to Billy Graham or rather his invasion of their family naivety and friendship.
Billy Graham has proved over the years to be a shill of the Papacy, Roman Catholicism and the Unified World Religion ie Ecumenicalism.
Gee it seems thatWWII is still ongoing and we have many spies in our country including actors and actresses!
Hate to admit and it does sound crazy I think we are dealing with doubles, occupation of bodies, and probably some form of trance/hypnotic mind control of people in this case. MOST ASSUREDLY a spiritual connection to their behavior culminating in our day and time because they serve a FALSE GOD ie the DEVIL, because they are victims of the FALSE TEACHING of the FALSE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS PROPAGATING A FALSE REPRESENTATION OF JESUS and WHY HE CAME, WHEN HE CAME, AND WHO HE IS in their scrambling, confusion and PURSUIT FOR POWER and most of all to control us, confuse us, abuse us, rob us, and kill us for their MASTER because they also want to be our masters. One big huge mess. Most of them could care less about the truth as they pray their mantra to their RAT MAN enslaving their followers at the same time.
If you think it is not important….think again. Who you pray to is important.
There are some that have tried in their capacities to express their suspicions in their way as best they can. We ought to notice and analyze when we can what they have tried to show us being heedful of artful deception all around them and us and the possibility that they are deceived and/or are part of the deception.
It is extremely tough and confusing to interpret, but very stupid and totally ridiculous to ignore!
Back to CBS NEWS:
We learned from Washington that Mrs. Sargent Shriver the sister of the President has been taken by helicopter from the White House to Andrews Air Force Base presumably to fly to Dallas to join Mrs. Kennedy or perhaps to await there the return of the party from Dallas.
Mrs. Kennedy, who was riding in the same car with the President, was not hurt, but has been taken to a quiet room in the hospital. 1:10/10:40 AH AH AH AH AH At this moment after the aftermath of the terrible moment that she had to go through in which shot rang out and the President slunk down his head in her lap.
That was strange!
Reports are still coming in. They do not perhaps add a great deal to the confusion of the events that we have been trying to sort out all day, but as they come into us CBS News is going to stay on the air live from here throughout this day in order to keep you up to date on the latest developments in the assassination of the President and what happens next.
The news agencies and our own correspondents who are keeping us informed from Dallas continue to send us reports bringing together the various pieces of information some confirmed some unconfirmed as they come in and as we begin to sort out the truth from the rumors of what has happened. (licked)
The President’s body has now been removed from Parkland Hospital. It was taken from there uh shortly after his death in a long uh cream colored ambulance with the curtains tightly drawn. Mrs Kennedy rode from the hospital in a passenger seat in the ambulance which is a type of vehicle that does have two seats for passengers. She and the body of President Kennedy were escorted from the Emergency Entrance of the Parkland Hospital by two motorcycle officers. Mrs. Kennedy walked slowly from the hospital to the ambulance looking around her, we are told, in a dazed manner and appeared to be in a state of shock. Those who saw her enter the hospital an hour and a half earlier said that she had not been hysterical and remained in control of herself throughout. Secret Service men uh have directed Police to remove spectators from the whole area.
Now we have another report from Washington.
Neil Strausser reporting:
Three jet planes are now warming up at Andrew’s Air Force Base presumably to fly members of the President’s family to Dallas, Texas. As you’ve already heard Eunice Shriver, the President’s sister, has left the White House by helicopter along with the President’s aide and very good friend Theodore Sorenson presumably on the way to Andrew’s Air Force Base.
Comments coming in from Capitol Hill are uniform in sorrow and very much bi-partisan. Democratic Senate Leader Mike Mansfield told newsmen, ” the death was a deep personal and tragic loss.”
Seated with Republican Senate Leader Everit Dirkson and Mansfield offices off the floor of the Senate Chamber the Democratic Leader told assembled reporters simply, “He was a man who contributed so much and deserves so much more in return.”
Senator Allen Bible Democrat of Nevada said, “This is one of the great tragedies of our civilization. The world has lost a great champion and the United States has lost a great and courageous President.”
Senator Jordan Democrat of North Carolina said, “The assassination was a great tragedy that has befallen this nation.”
The Speaker of the House and the next man in line for the Presidency after Lyndon Johnson, Speaker McCormick issued this statement to reporters, “This is a tragic event. I feel very inadequate in expressing my thoughts. The nation,” said Speaker McCormack,” has sustained a staggering loss, the significance of which is stupendous. Our country and the entire world will never forget President Kennedy. His leadership was superb in meeting the challenge of this period of world history. The warmth of his personality will never be forgotten. The relationship that has existed between the President and myself throughout the years has been very close and most friendly. In his tragic passing I have lost a dear and personal friend. The statement of Speaker McCormack.
We are told that an aide of Vice President Lyndon Johnson, now President Johnson George Reedy has arrived at the White House. There can be very little delay in these times, of course, to have a new administration take over. As we told you the law says the Oath of Office can be given by almost anyone. By now Johnson could already have taken it. It is presumed he will take it very shortly.
This is Neil Strausser in Washington.
Charles Collingwood reports:
President Kennedy’s body has been removed from the hospital in Dallas, Texas on the first stage of its journey back to Washington for what will be a State Burial. Mrs. Kennedy accompanied the body in an ambulance from the hospital to the airport where it will be flown back to Washington. Walter Cronkite whom uh who has been at this microphone all afternoon since the first word of of the President’s death has uh been looking at the reports as they come in. Walter have you discovered anything further than we’ve been uh giving?
Charles, nothing, except, as you know and indeed have already reported, that now the messages are beginning to come in from around the world and from the cities of the United States where a nation is in almost I I I would say it advisably, almost uncontrollable shock it seems. They’re weeping on the streets. Schools have to be dismissed. My own school is dismissed, because the children were weeping so much they couldn’t stay in con…..garbled (Man behind is wiping his eyes). Quite a tragic day as we all obviously know. Do you want me to relieve you a few minutes here Garbled stay on the air through all this is. Excuse me.
We do have some word here to, as to, as to uh what is, where some of the members of the uh Kennedy family were at the time of the event in Dallas, the assassination. Bob Kennedy, Robert Kennedy the uh Attorney General of the United States uh we are told was uh at lunch at the time it happened uh at his home in McClean, Virgina.
Uh FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover called the FBI office in Dallas and ordered an all out investigation of the shooting which of course could be expected. (licks) President Kennedy as you’ve been told now was uh the first President to be assassinated since William McKinnley who was shot to death in 19 uh 6 uh 19 uh 01.
(Takes off glasses) Six members of the Kennedy Cabinet as you also I believe have been told during the day were out of the country on their way to Japan. Uh their plane was called back an hour and a half out of Honolulu. Uh, they’re expected, of course, to return immediately to Washington. (licks)
It is anticipated that the new President of the United States, the 36th President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson, will continue uh the presi Kennedy’s policies with which he (?takes off glasses) seemed to be in firm agreement during these three years of the Kennedy Administration and presumably will continue most of the Cabinet in office uh through this next year at least until the uh November elections. (licks)
We told you that Senator Robert Kennedy was at his home in McClean, Virginia when he got the word. Senator Ted Kennedy and his wife, Joan, uh are now leaving Washington. Uh They’re boarding a jet at Andrews Air Force Base uh destined for Hyannis Port to be with uh the President’s mother and father who got the news there from a workman around the house who uh came running to the uh lawn where Mr. Kennedy was resting, with the news of the assassination. (licks)
The new President of the United States we believe that he must have by now taken uh the Oath of Office although we have not been advised of this yet is Lyndon Baines Johnson, a native of Texas, of Johnson City, Texas; where his mother and father had a ranch. He was born there some 54 years ago. (licks)
Uh, he was uh interested in politics at an early day when he was still in Southwest State Teachers College. He took uh law later and uh and became a very early uh follower of Fa Franklin Delanor Roosevelt who uh caught uh uh who became interested in the young man uh when he went to Congress in 19 uh in the early days uh 1937 of the Roosevelt uh second term and uh Mr. Roosevelt had indeed sponsored him for that uh job after making him
National Youth Administrator in Texas.
(puts glasses on)
Is it my imagination
or does FDR , LBJ and Billy Graham share some physical traits?
The youngish FDR looks like Billy Graham!
I wonder who caught this picture.
LBJ does not seem to be aware
of any photographer!!!!!!!
It is a close up and appears to be at his ranch,
but Billy Graham seems to be posing.
President Lyndon B. Johnson presents
Billy Graham with the Big Brothers of America Award
or does FDR , LBJ and Billy Graham share some physical traits?
The youngish FDR looks like Billy Graham!
CBS News Correspondent Dan Rather has arrived in our KRLD Studio in Dallas.
Let’s switch now to Dallas for his story.
( licks) The whereabouts of Lyndon Bane Johnson at the moment are unknown. VIce President, either soon to be or already President of the United States. Lyndon Johnson was at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas at the time or near the time of the official announcement of the death of the 35th President of this country, John F. Kennedy. Mr. Johnson left the hospital a very short time after 1:00 o’clock Central Standard Time. That would be 2:00 o’clock in New York.
The Secret Service, at this moment or as a few moments ago, was saying that Mr. Johnson uhs whereabouts would not be revealed for security reasons.
Most, if not all, of the Federal District Judges of Dallas and surrounding counties
were in and around the motorcade at the time the shooting occurred. We are told that most of the District Judges went to Parkland Hospital. It is possible we are told, that uh Lyndon Johnson was sworn in in some kind of temporary ceremony at the hospital, however there is no confirmation on that. The fact is, at the moment, the whereabouts of uh Lyndon Johnson are unknown, the Secret Service says, for security reasons. (licks)
Why were Federal District Judges of Dallas and surrounding counties on the street.
Weren’t they invited to the luncheon at the Trade Mart?
(Or were they just reliable witnesses.)
Mrs. John F. Kennedy left the hospital at approximately the same time the coffin carrying the body of her husband left. The coffin went to a private air installation at Dallas’s Love Field. Uh it either has left or will leave Dallas Love Field in a matter of minutes. (licks sorta)
We are told uh that the gun shot wound, the fatal wound inflicted on the President of the United States, entered at the base of the throat and came out at the base of the neck on uh the back side.
CBS News Correspondent Bob Pierpoint has been at the Parkland Hospital here in Dallas from just a few moments after the time uh President Kennedy arrived at the hospital and Governor John Connally arrived at the hospital. We expect to have Bob Pierpoint in the studio here with us very shortly. (licks)
A briefing session for newsmen is anticipated at Parkland Hospital at any moment. Uh Pierre Salinger, the Presidential Press Secretary presumably will preside over that briefing session. We hope to bring you that uh briefing session either live from the hospital or on film. At that time a good deal of the uh confusion about exactly what happened along the motorcade route uh here in Dallas at the time President Kennedy was shot and killed should be cleared up. That briefing session we expect to have in a few minutes.
Also, on the air very shortly we are hopeful of having some film taken at the Dallas Airport at the time of President Kennedy’s arrival.
Also, CBS news cameraman from Washington Tommy Cravens was in the motorcade uh less than 50 yards from President Kennedy when the shooting occurred. Uh, Cameraman Cravens film is uh on the premises at the time, at this time, being processed. We hope to have that film for you very, very sh shortly. What it will show uh Cameraman Cravens was not uh at all certain.
The there is some confusion as to whether a Secret Service man also was killed at the time of the shooting. There has been no official confirmation of any Secret Service man being killed. Although there are widespread reports including one from the Dallas Police Department that a Secret Service man was killed at the same time President Kennedy and Texas Governor John Connally were shot.
The latest word from the hospital on uh Texas Governor Connally was that Governor Connally was in the operating room and had been uh seriously if not critically wounded. That was the last official word that we had from the Dallas Parkland Hospital. (licks)
As you may know by this time President Kennedy was shot as he took part in a motorcade which was driving him to the Dallas Trade Mart which is uh a big meeting center located just a short way from down town Dallas. (licks) The announcement that the President had been shot was not made at that meeting center until approximately a half hour after the President arrived at the hospital. There was a great deal of uh grief immediately at the uh center there was a great deal of disbelief. In fact uh switchboards all over Dallas that anything resembling a public information source or still completely swamped with callers who are apparently refuse to believe that John F. Kennedy has been shot and killed. (licks)
There have been a number of uh suspects arrested by Dallas Police, Dallas County Sheriff’s Officers. One of the suspects was a 25 year old white youth. He was the first one arrested. He was in the vicinity of a multi-story building uh near the scene where President Kennedy and Texas Governor Connally were shot. On the fourth or fifth floor it has never been completely determined on which floor of that building, 4 empty cartridges were found. Police immediately arraigned that building. They also arraigned a 3 or 4 block area around that building believing that uh the assassin had fired his shots from the building.
A 25 year old white man was arrested either in or near that building and taken uh to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office as a suspect. However our latest report from the Sheriff’s office is that 25 year old man is not considered a good suspect.
Just a short while ago, near a down town Dallas theater, a 30 year old white man was arrested. He had on his person a weapon. At this time we are not exactly certain as to what kind of weapon it was. It uh had been reported that a 30-30 caliber weapon was the one used to kill President Kennedy and wound Governor Connally. That has not been confirmed. The whether or not the man arrested a few minutes ago at a down town Dallas theater had on his person a 30-30 weapon has not yet been confirmed. But the fact is that a 30 year old white man meeting the description of one for whom uh an alert and all points alert was put out shortly after the shooting has been taken into custody in down town Dallas.
In just a moment we hope to have the films from the shooting scene uh just after the shooting occurred by CBS cameraman Tommy Cravens. But while we see if that film uh is ready and can be uh shown to you, lets switch back to CBS news headquarters in New York.
There is considerable controversy that has gone on over a good number of years that is going to come up again now under tragic circumstances as to what number should be given to the new President of the United States Lyndon Baines Johnson. Whether he is the 36th or the 37th President of the United States even as it uh was debated whether President Kennedy is properly the 35th or the 36th President. This all stems from the fact that Grover Cleveland served split terms as President of the United States. Mr. President Truman uh called himself the 34th President of the United States and President Kennedy called himself the 35th both believing that Grover Cleveland’s two non-consequetive terms should be counted as one uh in counting the number of Presidents and not the total terms should be counted. So on that basis uh presumably President Lyndon Baines Johnson will consider himself the 36th President of the United States.
We still, quite oddly it seems uh to me on this news desk, have had no word from Dallas at all as to the uh location of (licks) uh Mr. Johnson, nor as to whether or not he has indeed taken the Oath of Office. It is assumed that he would have from uh a Dallas Judge, a Federal Judge perhaps. Perhaps then deciding to have another uh ceremony in Washington with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court uh which was what uh Calvin Coolidge did when he learned that he had become the President of the United States on his uh Vermont farm. (looks up)
It seems almost uh inconceivable that again this whole tragic set of circumstances has taken place in
these last three hours only. (looking up at someone or something)
It was 12:25 Eastern Standard Time.
11:25 in Dallas uh when the shots rang out on that Dallas street
and the life of President Kennedy was uh snuffed out.
Notice that JFK was shot at 11:25, not 12:25
and pronounced dead at about noon,
not 1:00 PM!
We now learn that Vice President Johnson is expected to be sworn in as President aboard an airliner before flying back to the nation’s capitol.
The White House says that Mrs. Kennedy will return to Washington late today to be with the children Carolyn 6 and John Jr. who will be 3 next week.
(licks) We have word from Dr. Malcolm Parry the uh attendant the surgeon at Parkland Hospital who attended President Kennedy (takes off glasses) who says that when he arrived at the Emergency Room I noticed the President was in critical condition with a wound of the neck and head. (puts glasses back on) When asked if possibly the wounds could have been made by (takes off glasses) two bullets he said that he did not know. He said that immediate uh (puts glasses back on) resumptive measures were taken uh and Dr. Kent Clark the Chief of Neuro Surgery was called along with several other members of the staff. Dr. Perry says they arrived immediately but at this point the President’s condition was critical and moribund. A tracheotomy was performed to assist the President’s breathing. That’s a throat operation. The doctor’s said an oxygen machine was used and blood and fluid also were administered. All of this obviously to no avail.
The President died 25 minutes after the shooting (takes off glasses) at 1:00 Eastern uh Standard Time.
Shortly after the news of the President’s death CBS News Correspondent Bernard Eisman went out into the streets of New York and here is his report:
o:20/11:00 Bernard Eisman’s voice sounds just like Sean Hannity!
As the news of President Kennedy’s death spread through the city to those who hadn’t heard it or had heard only the first fragmentary reports, even the street which is normally so loud you can’t hear yourself talking to another person (ridiculous thing to say) acquired a stillness that it’s never known. Where ever there was a radio or a television set people gathered to listen.
Can you tell me what your first reaction was Ma’am when you when you?
It was the worst tragedy ever happened to this country since President Lincoln.
Lady looks and sounds just like
Ruth Gordon in RoseMary’s Baby !!!!
How about you sir?
I just couldn’t I couldn’t believe it. That’s all. Just couldn’t believe it.
And you sir what was your?
…..believe it I didn’t believe it.
do you think would do something like this?
I don’t know I thats I can’t imagine in a way. I can’t imagine.
How about you sir?
I feel very bad, that’s all I can say.
Can you imagine who would do something like this sir?
Well, I don’t think anybody in their right mind. I think this is a terrible thing for our country, not only for our country, but for the entire world. And after all, one doesn’t – one does realize that the we are striving for peace at the present time and a thing like this, well why it’s just an utter
(sounds like he says un-uh) tragedy.
Speaks in a southern accent and he also looks like an actor, though I cannot recall his name.
Weird looking Sean asks the same man before this nutty actor with the bulging eyes. I guess he doesn’t remember who who who he asked previously.
Do you think that this indicates some sort of of a of an illness in America today?
I don’t understand it so much…… (the rest of what he says I cannot understand,
but it sounds like he says Sam)
Thank you very much.
Have you been thinking about what’s happened in the last few hours, sir?
Yes, I have and I’m deeply shocked. I’m ashamed of that this sort of thing can happen in America.
<—- This guy looks familiar, I think he is a British actor.
While this actor on the left above is speaking there is a young man in the background
<—————-who is watching and starts to smile and hides his face
and he looks like a young Pope Benedict/Putin,
then the boy turns and looks different
and the guy next to him takes on his attributes
and seems to pass around a sort of possession in the background.
This is where he turns and the then the weird ghoul travels to the next victim.
Here is the next guy: Could be his brother, Cardinal George Ratzinger.
This is occurring in the background and there is hand waving and other things also.
I won’t waste my time trying to follow this little imp though this street interview,
but thought you the reader might want to check it out yourself.
And how about you sir, have you had any? What are your first reactions to a tragedy of this sort?
My first reaction, sir, is that I hope these Southerners, these radicals,
are satisfied of getting their pound of flesh
in killing a man as good as him.
Are you certain that it is um right wing radicals or or people who oppose the President so desperately
that they would do something like this who who committed this act?
Yes sir. Could be no one else, uh some someone who would do this was must be mentally deranged.
They no no uh clear thinking human person would ever think of doing something like that.
How about you, sir, what, what was your first reaction?
Well, my first reaction was I was terribly shocked. I couldn’t believe of it. It really happened. But uh uh I dis a I disagree with this man about it being a uh the right wing radical. I uh it could have been a communist. I think it was probably something like that.
I know I have seen this guy in the movies also. Bit part actor.
And how about you Ma’am what?
You look as though you have been crying is that how it struck you first?
How how did you hear about it?
Well, I was a radio in my place and they told us.
DIO (Defense Intelligence Organization for Ra?)
Did all of the people in the office cry? Yes
And the office then was let go and sent home? Yes.
What the heck is Amanda Plummer doing in this scene?
And how about you sir what what what reaction do you have? How do you feel after a thing like this has happened?
The tape ends.
Have you ever seen the movie
Millennium starring Kris Kristofferson.
Probably the worst movie I have ever seen. Somewhere through the movie it restarts again so that you have to watch it over again although you don’t realize it till you have watched most of it over again. Strange. Kris is not the best actor, but I like him just not sure exactly why. I know he wrote music but I can’t remember what he wrote. I know he was in another movie with Barbara Streisand. I think I’m helping him out in a way.
Okay, so what is going on?
Could they not find regular people in New York to answer these questions so they had to hire a bunch of actors
oh yea and a couple clergy boys??
On the NBC facsimile of this kind of reporting
called “man street interviews”
reporter Jeff Pond interviewing in part 11 of NBC Coverage from which ever city that they are in
is a man giving his reaction to the news and behind him is another man
tongueing or something.
“Gentleman came into the office in which I was transacting business and um mentioned it to us
and at the time I wasn’t really able to believe it. 1:51/9:56
I had to hear it for myself and unfortunately I did very shortly afterward.”
Man in the background ghoulishly sticks out his tongue 3 times and seems to be “getting off” on the reactions
in a kind of strange way. Is he helping the man answer his question or is he trying to gain attention?
Man in background looks sort of like Ross Douthat …>
OP-ED COLUMNIST who wrote:
Back to Walter Cronkite
We have the first films taken in the motorcade just after the assassination shots were heard.
Dan Rather has that story in Dallas, Texas: 3:34/11:00
Dan Rather narrating
We are now going to run the films which were taken first at the Dallas airport. These are the films of then Vice President Lyndon Johnson and his wife Lady Byrd Johnson at the Dallas International Airport as they arrived this morning from Fort Worth.
Here is the late President John F. Kennedy and Mrs. Kennedy coming down the ramp at the Dallas airport.
JFK salutes or waves.
These films were taken slightly less than an hour and a half before President Kennedy was shot and killed in a motorcade in down town Dallas. The usual receiving line, of course, a number of Dallas dignitaries and
a lady who said that she had waited for 69 years to meet a President.
I wrote about that comment in another post which I hope you will read.
Most of my articles are linked on the right sidebar.
Mrs. Kennedy had been given a bouquet of roses at the Dallas International Airport as a token of affection from the city of Dallas.
Jack Ready Secret Service agent bounding around the area with a smudge on his chin.
President Kennedy had looked particularly hale and hardy on this Texas trip.
We saw him Monday in Florida and a number of the White House Reporters remarked that he was looking more physically fit than he had at anytime over the past year and a half or two years. (hmmmm) This is part of the motorcade from the Dallas airport toward the down town area. Shots taken just before the shooting occurred.
This is Dallas’s Parkland Hospital where President Kennedy was taken after being mortally wounded. The President reportedly was alive when he reached the hospital but he died a short time after arriving at the hospital.
Strange snapshot of a hand with a wedding ring flashes by.
Some efforts were made when the Presidential Party first arrived at the hospital to keep pictures from being taken. The roses that Mrs. Kennedy had carried earlier were on the back seat of the automobile in which the President was shot.
Now these are scenes of a building across the street from the scene where President Kennedy was shot. Police immediately arraigned this building. It is believed that the assassin was in that this same building on either the fourth or fifth floor.
This guy on the left looks familiar!
He looks like Ralph Fiennes of the movie
“Maid in Manhattan.”
Was this portion made after the Manhattan movie to deceive?
Are these actors inserting themselves in a holographic movie of the events involved in the assassination of JFK.
Some empty cartridges have been found in that building. Witnesses said they believe 3 or 4 shots were fired. Four empty cartridges were found in the building which had been arraigned by police.
A number of suspects were picked up immediately. Practically anyone in the area who even gave a hint of looking suspicious was picked up. Considerable confusion in the immediate vicinity. Right there was the spot where the President was shot.
This is part of the Police contingent arriving to surround the building. Police thought they might be able to catch the assassin still in the building. They were unsuccessful in that.
Police were heavily armed.
They arraigned not only the building but about a 3 block area around this building which as I say is located directly across from where the President was shot. This is practically the spot on the street where the President was shot. These pictures were taken just after the President had been taken to a hospital. Police made a systematic search of the building.
They found no weapon.
Up there on the 4th or 5th floor, perhaps out of one of those open windows, is where the assassin of President Kennedy is believed to have fired the fatal shots. (licks)
We have no further information as yet from the hospital along with the condition of Texas Governor John Connally who was riding with President Kennedy and who also was critically wounded. Our last report from Parkland Hospital was that Governor Connally was in the Operating Room; that he was still alive, but was uh in critical condition. (licks)
Walter, you mentioned a short while ago that it was difficult to understand why we have not been appraised of the whereabouts of Lyndon Johnson who will of course uh step up to the Presidency in light of the tragic death today of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. We are in direct contact with Parkland Hospital. We’re also in direct contact with Dallas Police and the FBI. We have a reporter with the Secret Service Agents. And the word from all sources is that Mr. Johnson is his whereabouts are being kept secret for security reasons. Uh if anyone knows where Mr. Johnson is uh it is not us at this moment. (licks)
Inside this film shown by Dan Rather are pictures of a man who looks just like the man at the Trade Mart who gave “a word” and “the Benediction” at the Trade Mart and was introduced as the pastor of the one of the largest Methodist churches in the world -Highland Park Methodist Church of Dallas Texas,
his name is Dr. William Dickenson, Jr.
I took a bunch (10 in all) of still shots of him above.
This same man is directing the Police in Dallas in front of the Book Depository Building in the film shown by Dan Rather.
I think “the word” he gave was A-M-E-N uh, unhyphenated, A FALSE GOD OF EGYPT! A-M-E-N R-A at the meeting at the Trade Mart about an hour after President Kennedy was shot.
I will add a link to a post about him here ASAP!
Read About Judge Sara T. Hughes in the link provided: Judge Sara T. Hughes
I think that article should alarm you!
Thank you, Dan. Thank you, Dan.
As a matter of fact, we just got the word from our reporters out there at the airport, uh bypassing you just as you were on the air at that last moment that Lyndon B. Johnson has been sworn in as the President of the United States. He was sworn in at 1:38 Central Standard Time, that was 2:38 and that’s uh uh almost an hour and a half ago now (left finger to nose) at this time it’s correct here uh. He was, the oath was administered too him by US District Judge Sara T. Hughes. Uh, he took the oath aboard the Presidential plane at Love Field just prior to take off to return to Washington. Uh, the President’s body is to be returned to Washington, also. Ah with, along with the, and Mrs. Kennedy. She will accompany it, uh, and that plane is supposed to arrive back at Andrews Air Force Base we’re told now at 5:25 this afternoon uh, uh Eastern Standard time. That’s about an hour and half from now. Whether that is the same plane in which pres uh now President Johnson is returning, we do not know.
The Presidential Oath as Lyndon Baines Johnson (takes off glasses) the 36th President of the United States took it, (puts glasses back on) reads, I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States and will do the best of my ability to preserve, protect, and defend (takes off glasses again) the Constitution of the United States.
There is a dispute as to which President really is the 36th President, because of second terms, assassinations, and other mishaps.
And now President Johnson is flying back to Washington to actively take over the reins of government.
Six of President Kennedy’s Cabinet who were on the route to Japan have turned around at mid-ocean and are flying back to Washington.
Attorney General Robert Kennedy, the President’s younger brother, who was often mentioned as a possible candidate himself someday for the highest office of the land, is in Washington. So was Senator Ted Kennedy, his youngest brother. Uh he was on the floor of the Senate uh presiding as a matter of fact uh uh uh and the Senate. As the word came he dashed from the Senate and is now on route to Hyannis Port, Massachusetts to be with uh his and the late President’s mother and father, there. We understand that the President’s sister uh Mrs. Sargent Shriver, wife of the Administrator of the Peace Corps, uh is flying was flying away from Washington too. And the first thought was that she perhaps was going to Texas to be uh with her brother before she learned of his death. We do not know where she is now uh destined.
We will now pause for ten seconds so that our stations may identify themselves.(licks)
The assassination of President Kennedy has been reported, of course, in some detail here since the historic shots rang out in the streets of Dallas, Texas at 12:25 noon today. It seems fairly possible that that was just some 3 and half hours ago. The President lived for 35 minutes after being rushed to Parkland Hospital in Dallas.
He died there at one PM Central Standard Time
at noon Dallas time today.
I thought that Dallas Time was Central Standard Time.
Has there been a change in the Time Clock locations
since the JFK Assassination?
The bible talks about
He will change time and laws —–
could that be the change in time?
I found this recording and even though it is not CBS I thought it would help to see from another perspective what was happening at the time and their reference to the time. While doing so I noticed Frank Magee acted strangely in regards to this assassination. In another post I include other pictures of Frank Magee with Barbara Walters and realized that they were not the same person. that post is linked following:
I have digressed quite a bit from the CBS News Coverage which continues further in this post, but I wanted to include what I found for your investigation if interested. I just did not want to pass up or gloss over this information. I think it is important.
NBC NEWS Coverage LIVE
says that President Kennedy was shot at 12:45!
Here is an excerpt of conversation between reporters Chet Huntley, Bill Ryan, and Frank McGee (Magee) of NBC News
who looks related to Eric Severeid and talks like him too🙂 about the time of JFK’s assassination:
“But all we know is that at uh roughly 12:45 or so uh the shots were fired…
“Central Standard Time?”
“I think it would have been uh Dallas Time.
“Must have been.”
Yes, it would have been Dallas Time. It has happened within the …”(interrupted)
“(garbled) …20 minutes?”
“Yes, within the past 20 minutes or so.”
Then in the telephone conversation with Robert McNeil reporting from Dallas,
Frank McGee repeats Macneil on the phone and says that Jackie was sitting between JFK and John Connally
when the shots were fired
and she was not hurt…..No mention of Nellie Connally!
But on the Zapruder film, Jackie was sitting next to JFK and behind the Connallys.
So there seems to be a lot of confusion as to when JFK was killed, their seating arrangement, and many other things until time
passed when the news agents were able to get a full picture
and had to deal with that Zapruder film.
Robert MacNeil, or as Frank says that Bob informs him that he was in the motorcade,
Then Frank Magee makes some interesting hand signals:
RUBS RIGHT FOREFINGER DOWN THE SIDE OF HIS NOSE ABOUT 5 OR 6 TIMES
(4:48/10:47-10:56/10-:47 PART 3) …>
As Frank Magee finds out that and confirms that President Kennedy is dead from Robert McNeil via the White House Press Secretary…
Magee DEVOID OF REMORSE rubs his right little finger down the side of his nose from the bridge of his nose to his mouth in a straight line….
IT IS DEFINITELY A SIGNAL!!! (0:29/10:25 Part 5)
I HAVE NO IDEA, BUT HE IS COMMUNICATING SOMETHING VEHEMENTLY!
Again. Frank Magee signals with his hand 6 or 7 times upon hearing the condition of JFK with more details.
“In his book, Windswept House, Martin wrote:
The Enthronement of the Fallen Archangel Lucifer was effected within the Roman Catholic Citadel on June 29, 1963; a fitting date for the historic promise about to be fulfilled. As the principal agents of this Ceremonial well knew, Satanist tradition had long predicted that the Time of the Prince would be ushered in at the moment when a Pope would take the name of the Apostle Paul [Pope Paul VI]. That requirement—the signal that the Availing Time had begun—had been accomplished just eight days before with the election of the latest Peter-in-the-Line.“
(To be honest, I have not read the it all, but it caught my eye in light of all the evidence of deception involved with JFK’s assassination ie. the behavior of the press and it’s clergy and/or the behavior of the clergy and it’s press and Jackie Kennedy)
IMO Frank Magee is fumbling for words to suppress his hostility and fanaticism and nazily
stamps his conclusion to that day and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy!
“……one member of the so-called “Four Horsemen” that included NBC newsmen John Chancellor, Edwin Newman,
“Sander Vanocur interviewing U.S. Senator and Democratic Presidential aspirant Robert F. Kennedy on the evening of June 4, 1968, shortly before Kennedy was shot and killed in a Los Angeles hotel.”
Isn’t that coincidental?
It is not mir coincidence, in my opinion!
Back to CBS News and Walter Cronkite
The 36th President of the United States Lyndon Baines Johnson, 54 year old native of Texas, a former Senator, a former member of Congress, former administrator of the National Youth Administration under President Roosevelt in Texas, has taken the Oath of Office aboard an airplane at Love Field in Dallas and is on route back to Washington.
The President’s body is flying back to Washington also accompanied by Mrs. Kennedy.
The President’s wife was in the open limousine along with Governor Connally of Texas and his wife when the shots were fired from an assassin’s rifle in the apparently the 4th or 5th floor of a building overlooking the motorcade route that was taking the President from Dallas airport to down town Dallas for a speech at noon. (licks)
The President was hit in the head and the neck whether by one bullet, however, or two, has not been clarified. Governor Connally was hit in the chest. Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Connally were not hit by the bullets.
A report that a Secret Service man was killed has not been clarified either.
In Dallas, a Dallas Policeman, just a short while ago, was shot and killed while chasing a suspect, a suspected to the assassination in a Dallas theater. The man pulled a gun, shot one policeman, wounded another and but was captured. And when he was captured he yelled, “It’s all over now,” and screaming hysterically was taken into custody by the police. Of course, we have no information whether this man is the assassin, or not. (licks) A vast dragnet has gone out throughout the Dallas area for any possible suspects to uh the criminal act in Dallas, today.
Former Presidents of the United States uh Truman, Hoover, and Eisenhower, as far as we know, have all been informed. At uh Independence, Kansas Mrs. uh Truman said that President Truman was too shaken up to make any comment at the moment. We have not heard from former President Hoover uh who is at the Waldorf Tower Suite in which he lives, but uh has made no comment as yet. (licks) Former President Dwight David Eisenhower also is in uh New York and his statement is this: I share the sense of shock and dismay that all Americans feel at the despicable act that resulted in the death of our nation’s President. Mrs. Eisenhower and I also join with all other citizens in expressing our personal grief and prayerful concern to Mrs. Kennedy and all other members of the family. That statement from former President Eisenhower.
In Boston, Massachussetts the late President’s home (Walter Cronkite adjusts his glasses) Richard Cardinal Cushing, a life long friend of the Kennedy family, made plans to leave immediately for Hyannis Port (licks) uh to be with uh Mr. Joseph P. Kennedy and the President’s mother uh Mrs. Rose Kennedy. (licks)
The Cardinal (Walter Cronkite takes glasses off again and puts them on again [See nazi?]) officiated at the marriage of President Kennedy and Jaqueline Kennedy in 1953. (Walter Cronkite takes his glasses off and lays them on his desk)
It will be a particularly poignant time for the Kennedy family next week. The two Kennedy children uh both have birthdays next week. John 3 November the 25th and (Walter Cronkite puts on his glasses) Caroline 6, on November the 27th.
An entire nation (takes off glasses) has almost come to a stop today uh in the wake of the horrible news. Uh, the Stock Market after getting the first news before it was known that the President had died. Prices began to plummet and the stock, the New York Stock exchange, and all other commodity and stock exchanges across the country, closed. Uh in New York all the theaters were immediately darkened and will not open tonight.(licks) Schools were let out across the country. (Walter Cronkite puts his glasses back on and licks)
We reported to you on the arrest of that individual in Dallas. He is being grilled now. He is said to be 24 years old. The name has been given for him by Dallas Police as Leo H. Oswald. Although, as the Dallas Police themselves say, there is no information as yet that he is the assassin. He was being chased as a possible suspect however when he did pull a gun and he killed a Dallas Policeman at that moment. A tragic day in the city.
We still haven’t heard definitely whether a Secret Service man uh died in the fuselade of shots. That was the rumor but rumors do spread rapidly at a time like this and there’s no proof that that actually took place as yet. (licks)
“Fuselade of shots” was a description in the testimony given by Secret Service Agent Roy Kellerman
when examined by The Warren Commission.
Odd that they used that description before the testimony had been acquired!
It is as if CBS News is a bit ahead of the witnesses, or was that some sort of a threat, or suggestion, or both?
We learn now that definitely Mrs. Lyndon Baines Johnson, the new First Lady (takes off glasses) and Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy are accompanying President Johnson uh (puts glasses on) back to uh Washington in the Presidential Plane. Uh they left uh they left Dallas just a short while ago. They’re due back in Da in Washington at approximately 5:30, we are told, at which time uh President Johnson will have to take into his hands the reins of the most powerful nation in the world. (licks)
President Johnson as you know is 54 years old native of Texas of a city called Johnson City ,Texas (takes off glasses) which is a little bit west of Austin, Texas where uh Mrs. Johnson has a radio and television interests, our affiliate station there. She has other television and radio stations in Texas.
President Johnson has been interested in politics since he was in Southwest Texas State Teachers College. He studied law. He went to Congress in 1937 after having served as National Youth Administrator in Dallas under President Roosevelt. He was a favorite of President Roosevelts. He was a New Dealer in the early days of the New Deal although his politics had turned somewhat more conservative over the recent years. He had sought the Presidential Nomination that was won by President Kennedy and was probably uh had about as good a chance as any of the runners up when President Kennedy then a Senator from Massachussetts swept the Democratic Convention in Los Angelos in 1960. (licks)
It was a surprise when President Kennedy announced that Lyndon Johnson was his choice for Vice President. And it was thought that he brought him into the ticket primarily to help swing a recalcitrant south including the rather important state with a heavy electoral vote, the state of Texas. It was in Texas today where President Kennedy
after 3 years of that administration met his death. (Walter licks 7:54/10:20)
Isn’t the Met another name for the Metropolitan Museum where the Temple of Dendur is housed that was donated by Egypt to Jackie Kennedy for her help saving a bunch of relics and temples while the Aswan Dam was improved with the help of LBJ, I think?
The temple has to do with some Pharaoh chick named
Hatshepsut or to put it another way
She Puts Hat
The Phat USS?
Play on Words? I don’t know. Sharon Stone?
Quite a resemblance too!
who thought she was related to Amen-Ra in some fashion and what was left over of her was her liver. Recently other Egyptian relics were stolen while Egypt was ousting their leader Mubarak.
The Met might explain the strange street man interviews with actors that probably reside in Manhattan.
Does seem to be related somehow!
“Nearly 4000 years ago, the Hebrew God gave Egypt’s king opportunity to do the right thing by letting His people go. The Almighty used words of admonition, nothing more, through Aaron and Moses. Yet when Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, God’s rod became his lectern, and weather, among other things, helped bring Yahweh’s significant point across.”
Was Hatshepsut that unnamed Pharoah?
Please read these two articles:
Eric Severeid has just moved in. Eric do you have a word or two?
Erik Severeid: Walter, I thought perhaps that we might talk (adjusts glasses and fiddles with his ear lobe for a while) a little about the new President of the United States. I have been trying to put down a few notes about the life and the nature of Lyndon Baines Johnson the man that our thoughts will be upon very soon.
He is 55, Walter, not 54. He was born in August of 1908. (finishes adjusting his glasses) He is really in the prime of life for the responsibilities of the Presidency at a point where a mans experience and his energies meet at a rather high unusual level. He was born in Texas near that Hamlet called Johnson City and the family flag flies there over the LBJ Ranch. He is a lawyer by education, a politician by instinct and by great success.
It is obvious that Walter and Eric don’t see eye to eye.
IMO he is a deceiver that lacks heart and soul. (The opposite of Walter Cronkite.)
He appears to me to be a boss and seems remorseless, emotionless, and definitely slick. I distrust his motives and his behavior. I do not however discount whether LBJ’s intent was to be a good Senator, VP, or President, because I really don’t know.
But I can see through Erik Severeid’s MO. ie manipulation and propping!
I take him for a man that goes with “the power” no matter who or what it is, because it serves his purpose,
however he does provide intelligence and information.
Back to Erik Severeid
He was a very young aide to President Roosevelt during the New Deal days working on Youth projects. (He was probably Roosevelt’s son???) He first went to the House of Representatives in 1937 when he was only 29 years old and he became the protege of Sam Rayburn the great Texan who ran the House as Speaker longer than any man in our history, including Henry Clay. Johnson (takes off glasses and sets them on the desk)) went to the Senate in 1949. He won in Texas by a very silent majority vote of 87 actually, and he became without much doubt the most effective Majority Leader in the history of the Senate. His energy was prodigious. He lived always in a whirl of activity.
He put most Senators in his personal debt by one service or another.
His fame in Washington itself became very great during those Eisenhower years when he led the opposition majority in the Senate. And his power at that time was considerably greater than it was, his real political power than in these years when he had been the Vice President. Johnson has been called by some a liberal by conviction and a intellect, a conservative by geography. His political alliances in Texas were with the more conservative uh Texas Democrats who have managed the state for a good many years. But in most national matters he was always regarded as what we call a progressive including on the issue of Civil Rights, and this again was in the pattern and the image of his protege Sam Rayburn. He is a fairly wealthy man. Uh, the family holdings, some in the name of his wife Lady Byrd, include television stations, as well as, that family ranch.
(So far in this monologue Erik Severeid has not licked! What does it mean? I don’t know. There is more and eventually he does:)
Possession of People’s Minds
In 1955, when Mr. Johnson was making a Sunday visit to the Farm of George McGeeHee another Texan, our UN? ambassador. That was near Washington. Johnson was hit rather (Eric Severeid adjusts his seat) hard with a heart attack He thought at first it was only acute indigestion. Uh, Senator Clinton Anderson of New Mexico was there at the time for this luncheon and he said, at once, (Erik Severeid clears his throat)
“You have had a heart attack.”
Johnson was taken to a hospital and he slowly recovered. For sometime after that, uh, his strength was considerably diminished. I remember him telling reporters once that on Monday morning he said I’m full of energy, by Wednesday night I’m tired out. But all that changed, his full strength came back and in recent years he has demonstrated his old energies, and they’re great energies, in the daily whirl of activities including a good many trips around this country and abroad. He is now personally acquainted with all the world leaders that the President was acquainted with including Mr. Kruschev. And his grasp of domestic politics, of course, is quite profound at the general and intellectual level as well as the practical working level of the total human machinery that makes our rather cumbered system work.
His fierce fight against Kennedy for the nomination in 1960 now seems only yesterday to most of us. His great prestige in Washington itself was not, at that time, matched by, uh, his prestige and his fame in the country at large. This was a great struggle right down to those final hours in the convention. And then Mr. Kennedy chose Johnson to be his running mate partly because he had to have the south and Johnson was regarded as the one man who could conciliate the southern conservatives. And this he did. And there were some who said later that Mr. Kennedy really owed his election to Lyndon Johnson. In any case, Johnson has never shown any, uh, jealousy what so ever, any kind of bitterness. He became the President’s lieutenant in full fidelity in private, as well as, in public. But as Vice Presidents do, certainly under a very energetic and active President, he slowly faded from national consciousness. And when the President died today he and Mr. Kennedy were in uh the President and uh the Vice President were engaged behind the scenes in Texas in trying to settle a rather fierce feud within the Texas Democratic Party between the Johnson-Connally uh forces and the Liberal Groups led by Senator Ralph Yarborough. All that, of course now, seems petty and of no consequence. In retrospect, it doesn’t matter. Mr. Johnson is the President and Texas will be his personal political base in toto. (licks 2:41/10:51)
And when the sorrows today begins to fade, when the President has been laid to rest, the machinery of the National Government will take up again. And again Americans will have to think ahead not only to what lines of policy and action the new President will follow but, of course, also to the election of next year. Mr. Johnson will be the nominated next August at the Democratic Convention if he wishes it, and I’m sure most observers would predict now that he will wish it. All estimations on the outcome of that election next November, of course, are now rather without meaning. Election, like the course this great country itself, now lies with fate in the continuing nature of our times and in our world.
And now back to Walter to you.
Conversation between Eric and Walter which is very illuminating
and kind of funny when you watch it:
Um, all right. That matter that you’ve suggested a little earlier on this afternoon of the danger of a violent reaction to the right wing in America assessing very probably improperly the assassination as being the resp the responsibility resting there already is beginning to come to light. Uh, you saw perhaps, uh maybe you were busy
Erik Severeid – No, I missed that. I missed that Walter.
Walter Cronkite -Uh, well the some interviews in the streets of New York and two or three people were laying the blame right there.
Erik Severeid – Well, it’s much too early for that sort of thing. ICK
Walter Cronkite – Oh, of course it is. The Soviet Union, however, is doing that. Tass has announced that extreme right wing elements were undoubtedly to blame.
Erik Severeid – This will be tragic if uh anything of this sort either takes possession of people’s minds
if there is,
if there’s any truth in it. ICK
Walter Cronkite – All right.
We now have some new film in at our Washington Bureau so lets switch back to Washington now and Neil Strausser:
Washington, Walter, is still in the state of shock except for those departments responsible for seeing to this smooth transition of the Presidency from Mr. Kennedy to Mr. Johnson. Almost no work is being done. Most Federal and District of Columbia workers are being sent home an hour early.
On Capitol Hill almost all of the comments contain the words tragic loss, disasterous.
First word of the shooting was carried to the Senate floor by Richard Rydell, a Press Liason aide, whose job it is to watch the tickers in the Senate Cloakroom and keep Senators up to date on world happenings.
Rydell tells of his fateful mission:
Well, uh, the routine, the tickers in the lobby, AP and UP tickers, are read by Senators and Staff Members for routine information. Ah Phyllis Rock of the Staff of Senator Morris of Oregon was in the lobby by herself reading the ticker. Uh, she turned to one of my assistants, Tom Pelican is with Senator Long of Missoura and his office part of the time and said the President has been shot. Tom rushed out to tell me. I immediately went into the Senate Chamber to the, over to the, in front of the desk of, of uh Majority Leader Senator Mike Mansfield. Raised my voice so that he and the Senators, the surrounding desks, could hear and said
Senators, the President has been shot.
It, of course, was like a shock wave, a jolt. I crossed the aisle to the Republican side where…..
garbled 6:11/10:51 glitch but sounds like
whether inserted in for what ever reason
I don’t know, but it is in this recording!
Ankh is egyptian and so is Amen-ra/re the common ending of prayers by most Christians. Amen is an Egyptian god. I’m sure the addition was added into the gospels by Amen’s followers either through deception on their part or because of their being deceived, nevertheless it’s wrong! Until people wake up to the machinery it will continue to cap the population with its power to deceive, ruling over us – all the while claiming that we are liberated, as it kills us inside and out.
I think “The machinery” is why President Kennedy was assassinated and “the machinery” is what JFK was going to speak about and had already warned about in an earlier speech. However, I cannot find a visual tape of him making that speech, which I find to be odd and that is why I think that was what he planned to say at the Trade Mart in Dallas. Possibly, he was going to shed light on who was “the machinery” at the Trade Mart luncheon in Dallas, but instead was hi-jacked beforehand, and it seems to be his own friends and those he was trying to help that are involved, even his family. The deception is so steep and ingrained into their hearts ……they blindly follow in myriads of ways, the wrong ways.
What is worse and hard to understand is the deception of and by the Clergy……the Chief priests and the Legion who should know better and I think many do know better, but they do it anyway to yours, mine, our loved ones destruction.
They obviously are masters of deception and disguise!
back to the transcript:
Dirkson was seated and in the same manner told Senator Dirkson and the Republican Senators who were at adjacent desks. I would, of course, the same shock reaction and stunned uh expressions on their faces.
I then happen to recall at a few moments before the Presidents brother uh, Senator uh Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, was presiding over the Senate. I turned and he was still occupying the chair. I knew that someone would have to inform him and I thought I might as well. It was a very difficult, very difficult job, because of the family relationship, as well as, the friendship of the Senators to the President.
I rushed up to the chair and said Senator, Senator Kennedy your brother the President has been shot. He gave a a jerk, his body, his body tensed, but he was absolutely calm. And as I recall, Senator Kennedy, then presiding over the Senate, when he heard this awful news said, “No” and that was all. In an orderly manner, he gathered up the papers on his desk that he, his routine office uh work that he brings when he presides over the Senate, so that he can conserve the time the long hours presiding over the Senate by working on his office work.
I walked off the rostrum with him with my arm around Senator Kennedy patting his shoulders and said Senator, if there’s anything any of us can do, let us know. My own suggestion would be that you contact the Air Force and have them rush you out to Texas to your brothers side in a jet, in a military jet.
He said, “Thank you. I’m going to call the White House and the Attorney General.”
where upon by that time we had reached a phone in the lobby and he immediately put in calls to the White House and to the to to the Department of Justice seeking all the information and contact with his brother a good friend Bobby Kennedy.
back to Neil Strausser
Of course, that trip to Dallas Texas proved unnecessary. Senator Edward Kennedy and his sister Eunice Shriver later this afternoon flew red-eyed and somber to Hyannis Port, Massachusetts to be with their parents. The late President’s youngest brother and his sister the wife of the Peace Corps Director arrived at Andrews Air Force Base at 3:20 PM by helicopter and within minutes had boarded a jet for Cape Cod to be with the ailing former Ambassador Joseph Kennedy and Mrs. Rose Kennedy.
This is Neil Strausser in Washington.
And now, lets switch back to Dallas, Texas where Don Rather….. Dan Rather is standing by.
Dan Rather: Walter, we have some additional film taken at and near Parkland Hospital where President John Kennedy died. Uh, this film is in rough-cut form. These are some of the witnesses in the area of the shooting. There was a great deal of disbelief at first that the President had even been shot and even more disbelief that he was dead. This is in the area of the Emergency Room of the hospital, I believe. We have Eddie Barker, News Director of KRLD Television and Radio, our affiliate, in Dallas.
Eddie, this is near the emergency room of the hospital, is it not.
Eddie Barker: Uh, yes Dan, that is correct. And that’s a Secret Service Agent, there, who is uh talking to the crowd. Uh, we uh talked to to some people who we would consider as very good sources. Uh this is uh uh when they were getting ready to uh uh to leave the hospital. And, uh, it was very difficult to get any film, because Secret Service Agents, uh, were, uh, quite adamant in keeping everyone back, uh, a good distance from.
This is Senator Yarborough, here, I believe.
Dan Rather: Senator Yarborough
Eddie Barker: Yes.
Dan Rather: was one of the first, uh, to get
Eddie Barker: Yes.
Dan Rather: the word that the President’s death.
Eddie Barker: Right.
Dan Rather: He is a Democrat of Texas, Senator Ralph Yarborough.
Eddie Barker: Right.
Eddie Barker: This is, uh, Father Huber from Holy Trinity Church, in Dallas, who administered the last rites to the President. There were two priests, uh, in attendance. And I, uh, I do not know the other ones name, at this time.
Father Huber looks very much like,
“Charles Stanley received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Richmond.
He later obtained his Masters of Divinity from
Father Huber also resembles Arthur Meier Schlesinger, Jr.
Above is Father Huber according to McAdams Site who looks very much like Cardinal McIntyre of LA
who said he was eating dinner with Cardinal Ritter in Rome at the time of the news of the assassination
relayed in both CBS and NBC news coverage.
Quick to distance himself early …as well as, his compadre Ritter.
If he is Huber in the photo taken at the hospital then he must have shrunk or sucked in his lips…that, or the man at the hospital had lip augmentation to fool us. It is obviously not the same guy in any which way that you look at them.
These are a few snapshots of the unnamed priest in the dark hat.
continuation of DanRather and Eddie Barker reporting:
Eddie Barker: There were shocked, uh, people all around, as you can see, from these crowds many of them hospital employees.
Dan Rather: Uh, quite a large crowd gathered at the hospital.
Eddie Barker: Yes, uh, there was, uh, quite a traffic jam out there.
Looks like a woman hyper-ventilating and breathing in a paper sack or crying hiding behind the object in her hand.
Dan Rather: These scenes are at Parkland Hospital in Dallas,
Eddie Barker: That’s correct.
Dan Rather: ….where President John Kennedy died.
Eddie Barker Dan I, I uh, don’t know whether you are aware of this, or not: uh, Mrs. Kennedy, uh, maintained her composure, we understand, uh, up until the time that she actually went into, uh, the room where the, uh, Presidents body lay and uh, she said,
“Jack, Jack, no, no,” was, uh, the uh, was the word, were the words that she used.
Note : because that is what Jackie says she said
President Kennedy was shot.
She rode, uh, from the hospital to the airport, uh, in the back section of the hertz. It was a cream colored (Eddie adjusts his glasses), um, hertz belonging to a local funeral home, here. The curtains were drawn, but as she, uh, as the, uh, hertz left, Mrs. Kennedy could be seen in the back and the President’s body was airborne at 47 minutes past 2:00 o’clock.
That’s Central Standard Time.
Dan Rather: Texas time, yes.
This is an interesting conversation because Mr. Eddie Barker wants to be sure to say that
Texas Time is Central Standard Time!
Or is he saying something else in regards to the assassination of President Kennedy
now it’s Texas Time?
But Walter Cronkite said that Central time was not Texas time.
I realize that now Central time is Texas time,
but I have no idea whether Texas time was Central Standard time
at the time when President Kennedy was assassinated!
Please read part 15 at the beginning of the tape Walter Cronkite announces :
“He died there at one PM Central Standard Time
at noon Dallas time today.”
Dan Rather: We covered Mrs. Kennedy yesterday in San Antonio as she arrived with her husband (Eddie Barker adjusts his notes and then at 1:30/10:03 Eddie with his fore finger and middle finger as seen in photo above which looks like the signal that Billy Graham gave when Jackie received the puppet over the fence line at the airport. I may be reading too much into all of these signals or gestures of these reporters, but I am just trying to be as precise as possible about those gestures) and the Lyndon Johnsons.
There had been some reports from the White House Press Corp that Mrs. Kennedy was reluctant to make the Texas Trip. It had been billed in many quarters as strictly a political trip and as Mrs. Kennedy arrived in San Antonio she at first appeared to be rather ill at ease, but later in the day she seemed to warm up to the occasion and I noticed today in both Fort Worth and Dallas that she really seemed to be enjoying herself. I think with Mrs. Kennedy there was, uh, some reluctance to come to this state, because people would tell her Well, they’re a different kind of people. Uh, but she did seem to be enjoying herself thoroughly throughout the day.
Her husband was assassinated ……but Dan Rather is saying that Jackie was enjoying herself. What a strange thing to say!
Eyewitnesses at the shooting say that in the early moments immediately after the shooting that the President’s head was in Mrs. Kennedy’s lap and that Mrs. Kennedy did, co uh, restrain herself, did have her composure until the time she went into the hospital where uh the President, then dead, uh, was. (Dan Rather licks)
That certainly made no sense at the end. This is a weird conversation from Dan Rather, as if chiding Mrs. Kennedy, I think.
Is Dan Rather mocking?
Eddie Barker: She a walked out of the hospital, Dan, under her own power. Uh, there was no one, uh, from where we were standing, there was no one uh uh holding on to her arms. She walked out. She was hatless when she came out of the, uh, Emergency Exit and ,uh, got into the, uh, Hertz that bore the body to the airport.
Is Eddie Barker mocking?
Dan Rather: Eddie a lot of questions are going to be asked (Eddie adjusts glasses) about what kind of place is Dallas, Texas. Just recently there was the publicity about the city and the rough reception that the United States Ambassador to the United Nations Adlai Stevenson got here, that was the occassion in which he was spat upon, and hit with a picket sign. (Eddie scratches left eye brow temple area) Uh, I think Mayor Cabell (pronounced with long A sound)
Eddie Barker: Cabell (corrects Dan about pronounciation with short A sound)
Dan Rather: Cabell only yesterday made a statement saying that this city was quite anxious to give President Kennedy an especially warm welcome, because of that incident. But there going to be a lot of questions asked in the coming days about what kind of place is Dallas, Texas uh a place in which this could happen. You’re a long time resident here and in the eyes of many, uh, sort of Mr. Dallas. Could you tell us what kind of place this is?
Eddie Barker: Dan, it’s a, Dan actually it’s a very fine place and it’s a very fine city and, uh, uh, I know the city fathers have discussed this in great length.
Who are the city fathers?
or does he mean uh uh Fathers? as in Priests?
but uh uh there is an element that has developed here in the past few years uh that considers itself a uh wing, uh, very much to the right, the far right, and uh, this, this is certainly a very uh small minority. I know today at the luncheon that the President was to have attended and I looking over the uh people who were there and there were many Republicans, there were many uh conservative Democrats, but they were all out there to welcome and to honor the the Office of the President of the United States. And um this uh this is something that uh certainly this city is going to be uh living with for a long time, but uh this does not in any way reflect the great majority of the people here. Politics in this town or uh different certainly than they are in a lot of places uh. There are many factions of the Democratic party. Uh the Republican Party as you know is very strong. We have a Republican Congressman.
We had a situation here a few years back uh you may remember when uh uh Senator Johnson had his uh uh then Senator uh Johnson had his problems in one of the down town hotels. That was
Dan Rather: That was in the 1960 campaign.
I have no idea what he is talking about, sorry.
Eddie Barker: Yes. Yes. But this is a minority group and certainly is not a reflection of this this community. Many of these leaders I will say in closing when the word came today at the Market, at the Trade Mart, uh that the President was dead uh they broke down and cried. It was a very moving thing.
Dan Rather: We’re going to switch now from Dallas, Texas back to CBS News Headquarters in New York.
The news, as you know it, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas today.
Twelve twenty-five (12:25) he was shot in a motorcade on route to a speech in Dallas from the Dallas airport and died 35 minutes later. Lyndon Baines Johnson, 55 year old Vice President, took the Oath of Office in an airplane at Love Field and is flying back to Washington to take the reins of government.
Governor John Connally of Texas was shot also and is in serious condition at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas.
Charles Collingwood if you want to come in and relieve me a little while. We are at CBS News. Going to stay on the air throughout this day to bring you details as we have them.
That Presidential Plane is expected back in Washington now we are told at 6:05 with the Presidents body. Charles?
As Walter Cronkite has told you, the Vice President, the former Vice President, the 36th President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson is on his way back to Washington after having been sworn in in the Executive Compartment of the same plane which brought President Kennedy to Dallas, Texas this morning. (licks)
President Johnson was sworn in by Judge Sarah Hughes, a Federal Judge in Texas, who wept with emotion as she administered the Oath of Office to the Vice President by which he became the President of the United States. At the ceremony, Mrs. Johnson, who had accompanied the President on the the uh tour of Texas, was there as were various staff members, Congressmen who were present, and all those with some official capacity or who uh could be brought into the ceremony.
It’s in the nature of things, of our Presidential succession, that the emphasis, the spotlight, is now upon the new President. No one is ever prepared for an event of this kind, not the Secret Service which can only take the most effective precautions possible and can never safeguard against some twisted person who can circumvent the most careful precautions that can be taken.
if the men in government are twisted,
and if the men in the clergy are twisted
then anything twisted can happen
no matter how great a system works.
It isn’t the machinery that makes a great country.
That is like saying my computer makes me great.
We may have the tools, but are we using them right?
Who is Benefitting?
We certainly are being bombarded in every which way!
We may have “the word”
but are we interpreting and understanding
Not the public certainly, not the officials of government, but the machinery for the succession to the Presidency of the United States has been well tested over the years. And thus it was that less than 2 hours after the Presidents death, Vice President Johnson was sworn-in in the plane which brought the President to to Texas and which took another President back to Washington D.C..
Also on route to Washington in the air is the President’s body, accompanied by Mrs.Kennedy who was in the same automobile with him when the assassin’s bullet was fired in Texas, in Dallas, Texas, this morning.
We continue to have reports, fragmentary and confused still, as the law enforcement machinery in Texas on both the State, the City and the Federal level are engaged in trying to find the persons or person, the person or the persons responsible for the bullet which was fired from the building which overlooked the route by which the cavalcade uh which the cavalcade followed as the President, the Governor of Texas, the Vice President, Senator Yarborough, assorted dignitaries, moved from down town Texas to a Trade Mart on the outskirts.
A bulletin here from Dallas says that Governor John Connally of Texas wounded by the sniper who assassinated President Kennedy was described this afternoon as being in a very, very serious, but not critical, condition.
Julian Reid an aide to Governor Connally said that Connally suffered three wounds: one in the right arm, one in the right leg, and one in the back that pierced his body. Julian said that Connally had been in surgery an hour and probably would be there for another hour.
Now, for a report from our Mobile Unit in Chicago. We go to Chicago and Russ Bensly:
The flagstaff tells the story at the corner of State and Madison Streets. Beneath it the bright lights, the Christmas demonstrations. But they have no joy today. Here in Chicago the crowds who came downtown to shop are standing around in silence and sorrow in the rain.
The strange thing is you don’t even notice it’s raining, and if you do notice, you don’t care.
Most of those who have talked to us here share the universal feeling of shock.
Some have a feeling of anger.
We thought we’d let you hear how they feel.
Sir, how did the news of President Kennedy’s death affect you?
-As a man of God, I would say that I felt the impact of the snipers bullet. I would also s-say that I felt the pain that the President had in his dying moments. Thank you.
-I’m shocked, very shocked at this, ah We read about many countries losing their heads of government through assassination, but I never dreamed that it would ever happen to our head of government. I’m very sad, indeed.
Thank you. How do you feel, sir?
–It was once said that history repeats itself.
Look at Abe Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth. The rain you see here in Chicago is not rain, it’s emotion.
Looks like the soft jazz singer! Harry Conick, Jr.
Sir, how do you feel?
-Well, I feel shocked. I can hardly express my emotion and I hope that the country will survive.
-I can’t say th crying
-I just couldn’t believe it when I heard it. We were in school all of a sudden we were just told the President was dead.
It just, it wasn’t, it didn’t seem possible.
How do you feel now?
-Like a daze. You don’t know what’s going on and why? Why did it happen?
Who would have done such a thing?…. is the question.
-This is a dark day in the history of America. This man, I think wanted to save America.
He is not dead. His spirit lives.
We are sorry. Deeply moved over this incident here in America.
– I just can’t believe it. It just. I feel like uh someone in my own family has died, has died. I just can’t believe it.
Looks like the comedian Chris Rock.
– It feels like a loss in the old family.
I think it’s a great loss to America.
– Came up the street, and I thought, no its not true, we are not without our President. We live in a Christian country. President Kennedy was a Christian. Please God, help his wife, his family. Give strength to his mother and to his ailing father. We will miss a great friend and a true Christian.
– We will all miss one of the greatest Presidents that ever was.
– I was shocked when I heard it and well they closed the City Hall in respect to him.
Everyone else was truly sorry it happened, and that’s all.
Ma’am how did the news affect you?
– I was shocked, deeply shocked. We miss, we’ve lost the uh very good President.
He was for the poor people and that’s what we need a President like that.
Those are typical reactions in Chicago and I imagine they’re fairly typical of the reactions across the country. There are several hours now since the news broke and the minds still reels at accepting the fact and it will continue to be an incredible tragedy for days to come. This is how Chicago feels. This is how the nation feels.
This is Russ Bensly in Chicago. Now back to CBS News in New York.
I do think these were very sweet and sincere reactions of the people in Chicago,
but I feel like the News people are relishing this loss to the American people. Not all of them obviously, but many of them.
I think we are being blamed for the assassination
kind of like Jackie saying she wants to wear a bloody dress all day so they can see what they have done
after smoke rises from her weapon, etc?
Doesn’t make sense,
but that’s machinery!
That same sense of grief and disbelief is being expressed today all over the world by great people as well as by small ones.
We have some late film now from Dallas, Texas and so for that film we switch now to Dan Rather in Dallas.
As we mentioned a short while ago a number of arrests have been made in Dallas in the wake of President Kennedy’s death. We have scenes of one of those arrests in the downtown area. This was just after a Dallas Policeman was shot in the vicinity of a downtown movie house. The suspect was brought immediately to Police Headquarters. Uh, that particular suspect is among many who is being questioned. Uh, not all of them in connection with the uh shooting. Some of the uh suspects are simply are being questioned as to possibly what they saw. The Dallas Police Headquarters is literally alive with people who have been brought in off the streets uh arrested for one cause or another.
shows Oswald face and eyes swollen
Eddie Barker: Dan, there is a report that an arrest has been made in Fort Worth also of a suspect.
Dan Rather: Eddie Barker of our affiliate station KRLD who was in Dallas who was covering the Presidents arrival today. uh At least a half dozen suspects or people identified as suspects by police have been picked up here in Dallas.
We also have the first films that we’ve had available of the Parkland Hospital. Well these are films of a pistol taken off one suspect in the down town area. Now, earlier reports said that the President had been shot with a 30-caliber weapon or some description, but that particular pistol was taken off of a suspect arrested in the down town area. We have the films taken at Parkland Hospital at the time the ambulance uh carrying the body of President Kennedy. I believe these are arrival films, are they not? This is
Eddie Barker: No, this is when they’re getting ready to leave, I believe, Dan. I……
Dan Rather: The group, the Presidential Party, coming out of the hospital.
Eddie Barker: Yes yes yes.
Dan Rather: Those particular people cannot be identified. They were part of the Presidential Party.
Eddie Barker: The Presidents the Presidents secretary, Mrs. Lincoln, who came out about this time, but I’m not sure if that is her.
Dan Rather: This is a scene at Dallas’s Parkland Hospital as the body of President Kennedy was brought out and taken to Dallas’s Love Field to be flown to Washington.
Eddie Barker: Yes, it is.
Dan Rather: The body is now now on route by plane to Washington. Also on route to Washington is the 36th President of the United States Lyndon Baines Johnson. It was quite a crowd at the Parkland Hospital about this time when the President’s body was taken away, but most of the crowd was away from that particular section of the hospital.
Earlier today down in Uvalde, Texas Former Vice President John Nance Garner celebrated his 95th birthday. Mr. Garner refused to grant any interview as such but in the course of a conversation with reporters this was some two hours before President Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas. Former Vice President under Franklin Roosevelt John Nance Garner said he felt that President Kennedy might become one of the great Presidents of this country. Former Vice President Garner a long time friend of Lyndon Johnson.
The center picture looks like Oswald is holding back a smile
after he looks at the guy behind him who is smiling.
Have you heard of Oswald Oil Company?
This is another scene at Dallas Police Headquarters of suspects being brought in. Suspects rounded up in practically all sections of town. We mentioned earlier that some rifle shells were found in a upper story of a multi story building right across the street from where President Kennedy was shot. Police a ringed/reined? (actually sounds like he says arraigned) that building and made a systematic search of it, but they did not arrest any suspect inside the building. Police have taken a number of weapons off persons that they believe to have been in the crowd. It has not been definitely determined that a 30-caliber weapon was the weapon used to kill President Kennedy. Uh those were the earlier reports and Dallas Police are working on that theory at the moment.
We have a statement that has been issued by
the Dallas Citizens Council, the Dallas Assembly, and the Science Research Center of Dallas. This statement is signed by Mr. J. E Johnson President of the Dallas Citizens Council, Mr. W. Dawson Sterling President of the Dallas Assembly, and Dr. Lloyd B. Burknor who is President of the Science Research Center.
And this statement says,
Our hearts are filled with sorrow. We are deeply distressed and grieved that the respectful and enthusiastic welcome
in progress for our President
was terminated by an
Act of Lunacy.
This is Dan Rather in Dallas, Texas with Eddie Barker. Back now to CBS Headquarters in New York:
While the new President of the United States, President Lyndon Baines Johnson, sworn in in the Executive Cabin of the Presidential plane within 2 hours after President Kennedy’s death. While the new President is flying back to Washington reports come in from all over the world of the universal sense of shock and grief and disbelief with which the news of the President’s assassination was greeted.
In England, British Television Stations told their viewers tonight that President Kennedy had been killed and then suspended regular broadcasts.
The British Broadcasting Corporation and the Independent Television Network
went on the air playing funeral music in honor of the President.
other articles you might like:
All in small groups, and in large ones, and individuals all over Europe, th the sense of of grief
and, and, and, heartbreak was expressed.
President, uh, Charles de Gaulle said that
“President Kennedy died like a soldier under fire for his duty and in the service of his country.”
De Gaulle went on- “In the name of the French people, ever the friend of the American people,
I salute this great example and this great memory.”
Other European leaders joined in similar tribute.
In this country, President, former President Harry S. Truman who, himself, succeeded to the Presidency on the death of President Roosevelt, and who, himself, was an intended victim of assassins bullets 13 years ago. President Truman was too stricken by the news of President Kennedy’s assassination to comment immediately, but Mrs. Truman said that the former President would issue a statement later. Truman was at his home in Independence when he heard the news of President Kennedy’s death.
Richard Nixon who ran against President Kennedy for the Presidency of the United States said “the assassination of the President is a terrible tragedy for the nation. Mrs. Nixon and I have sent a personal message expressing our deepest sympathy to the members of the family in this hour of sorrow.”
In Washington, the nation’s leaders of both parties express their grief and sorrow.
For that report we go now to Neil Strauser in Washington:
We now have film of the reaction of the Democratic and the Republican leaders of the Senate. Democrat Mike Mansfield and Republican Everitt Dirkson met newsmen together in a show of bi-partisan sorrow at the death of our Chief of State.
Give me a break….bi-partisan sorrow?
We hear first from Senator Dirkson:
“There are some things that are simply incredible and leave one absolutely speechless. This is one of them. I knew John Fitzgerald Kennedy as a Representative, as a Senator, and as a President for 14 years or more and my last visit with him was on Tuesday morning of this week. I went early to present him with a turkey from the Turkey Growers Association. He was so amiable so affable so agreeable and he looked in the very pink of condition notwithstanding a rather rugged tour in the state of Florida.The thing that stuck in my mind most when suddenly he shouted to a lot of school children and to those managing this live turkey – Don’t take the turkey away until the children have had a chance to come up and see it. We visited about many things. politics. bills pending in Congress, the future 19 hundred and sixty four and everything that one can encompass within a half hour visit and suddenly comes this mortal blow that strikes him cold and dead. I say its an incredible thing and uh my heart goes out to the family and that I’m a little frankly I’m a little bewildered by this turn of events as I know the nation and the whole wide world will be. So first my sincere sympathy to the entire Kennedy family and in the language of the Chaplain as we had a prayer in the hope that transfusion might infuse recovery that uh the nation still stands and the nation will live.”
And the Majority Leader of the Senate, Mike Mansfield:
“The passing of John Fitzgerald Kennedy is not only a tragedy for the nation which he so ably represented but is I think also a mark upon the respectability and the responsibility of some of our citizens. This good, this decent, this kindly man, this harassed man who had so much on his shoulders and received from some people so little in the way of support in return this man has now gone to his reward. And I will miss him as a personal friend. The nation will miss him as a great President. And the world will miss him as a great leader. One of the fondest memories I can recall is the cooperation and the support which the distinguished Senator from Illinois Mr. Dirkson the Minority Leader of the Senate gave to the President of the United States, a Democrat, time and time again when the interest of the nation were at stake. And I know how grateful he was to you for the many contributions you made and I’m just as grateful and the nation is too. Words are, words are, useless too express one’s true feelings at a moment like this.”
– “Mike, a person’s perplexity is just too great in a tragic moment like this.”
Dirkson and Mansfield
In this time of tragedy there are no political differences. Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona, the Republican many thought might be opposing President Kennedy the late President Kennedy in 1964 has issued this statement through his Washington office – It is both shocking and dreadful that a thing like this could happen in a free country. The President’s death is a profound loss to the nation and the free world. He and I were personal friends. It is also a great loss to me. Mrs. Goldwater and I offer our heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. Kennedy and to the President’s family.
As for members of the Presidents family Paul Niven reports from the Attorney General Robert Kennedys home in McCLean that the Attorney General learned of the shooting while he was at lunch with Robert Mar Morganthall, the unsuccessful candidate for Governor last year in New York.
Attorney General Kennedy was told by J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI a priest later visited the house
and another visitor was CIA’s chief John McCone.
Both of them walked in the garden for several minutes.
WAS J. EDGAR HOOVER A PRIEST or did a priest later visit the house?
It makes sense to me that J. Edgar Hoover was a priest!
Mrs. Ethyl Kennedy left home briefly to get the children probably from school. When they returned the Attorney General met them at the door and gathered one of his daughters into his arms. There has been no statement from the Attorney General. Local Police are protecting the home.
Caroline Kennedy who observes her 6th birthday anniversary next Wednesday and her brother John Jr who observes his 3rd on Monday were in the White House today when their father was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. It is believed that their mother, Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy, was faced with the task of telling them what happened. She, of course, is returning on the plane with the Presidents body. Will be back in Washington later tonight.
The President’s youngest brother, Senator Edward Kennedy, first heard about the shooting on the Senate floor while he was presiding over the Senate. We now have films of Senator Kennedy as he arrived at Andrews Air Force Base and boarded the jet flying to Hyannis Port, Maryland to be with the President’s ailing father, the late President’s ailing father, Joseph Kennedy and Mrs. Rose Kennedy.
And thats the story as we have it at this time in Washington.
This is Neil Strauuser reporting.
As silent and weeping crowds gather outside the White House in Washington summoned by the tragedy the flag at the White House flies at half mast. It was lowered within moments after word of the Presidents death was received. We have reports from all over this country, all over the world, of the shock at what transpired in Dallas, Texas this morning.
New York’s Governor Nelson Rockerfeller a would be opponent of President Kennedy and the election in 1964 has called President Kennedys death a shock and a terrible tragedy. Rockerfeller immediately canceled a political trip which he was to have made to New Hampshire where he is taking part in the Primary Campaign in that state which had been scheduled to begin on Sunday. Governor Rockerfeller has ordered that the flags on all New York State buildings be lowered to half staff for the next 30 days. Rockerfeller has ordered that all public state ceremonies scheduled within the next few days to be cancelled.
More bulletins come in from Dallas, Texan, Texas as they have been all afternoon, uh, talking about the efforts to apprehend the assassin. Police today seized one man, Lee H. Oswald, wh who whom you probably already heard. He is identified as Chairman of a Fair Play for Cuba Committee and is regarded, at least as far as we know, as the prime suspect in the assassination of President Kennedy.
Such as the nature of the American system for the Presidential succession that shortly after President Kennedy’s death was announced Vice President Johnson was Sworn-In in an impromptu ceremony in the Executive Cabin of the Presidential Plane, the very plane that had carried President Kennedy to Dallas this morning.
The new Chief Executive was took the Oath of Office
at 2:39 PM w uh Central Time,
that’s Dallas Time,
thats 3:39 PM Eastern Time
and for the first time in history the Oath
was administered by a woman
US District Judge Sara T Hughes.
Johnson was sworn in on the Air Force Number One, the Presidential Plane, and he then flew on to Washington. He’s now en route airborne to Washington to take up the duties of Chief Executive of the United States duties,
which cannot wait upon sorrow or tragedy.
Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Johnson were both present at the swearing-in of President Johnson. So were several Congressmen, White House Staff members who accompanied the Presidential trip. Johnson asked as many of the White House people who were there as possible to crowd into the plane to witness the ceremony. Judge Hughes wept as she administered the traditional Presidential Oath to President Johnson. And then the plane took off immediately for Washington with Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Kennedy, and some White House Aides aboard.
President Kennedy’s body is following on another plane.
Vice President Johnson is a figure who has not been without controversy (and/in?) our system. He, himself, had uh tried for the Presidency in 1960. Accepted the Vice Presidency when it wa the Vice Presidential nomination when it was offered to him by President Kennedy, and has been a loyal aide in the last 3 years to President Kennedy submerging his own ambitions and many uh ways his own personality to help the President carry on the programs to which he was pledged.
Many statements are coming in from all over the world: an eloquent one from France by General De Gaulle who said that in soldierly language that President Kennedy had died like a soldier, uh, by fire in the battle which he waged.
Here is a statement which has just come in from Jay Erwin Miller,
President of the National Council of Churches (licks 1:48/10:51)
(camera switches to Dar Rather and then quickly to Parkland Hospital (1:54/10:51)
We have a report now which uh has to do with uh w uh the a news conference at Parkland Hospital a report on the condition of Governor John Connally of Texas, so we switch to pla
(film shows doctors and newsmen but is inaudible, because of the crowd in the room and it’s noise and confusion)
The scene is the Parkland Hospital at Dallas Texas. This is Dan Rather of CBS News. The man you are seeing here is the doctor who has been attending Texas Governor John Connally.
–I’m Dr. Robert R. Shaw Professor of Thoracic Surgery at Southwestern Medical School. (blink 2:47/10:51)
Because of this position I accepted the responsibility of taking care of Governor Connally for the…..
interrupted, long pause, nods and smiles./ 3:14/10:51
I’m Dr. Robert R. Shaw Professor of Thoracic Surgery at Southwestern Medical School. Because of my position I accepted the responsibility of taking care of Governor Connally uh following his injury. I want to say at the outset that the condition of the Governor is quite satisfactory in view of the injury that he has sustained. He seemed to have been struck by just one bullet which entered the right posterior chest close to the shoulder blade and coursed downward along the chest wall taking out and fragmenting a portion of the fifth rib on the right. The bullet then emerged from the chest evidently struck his right wrist fracturing the lower portion of the right radius and then entered the left thigh where it was spent. The thigh wound is trivial. The fracture of the radius should heal without difficulty or without further disability. Our major problem was the sucking wound of the right chest wall because in making the wound of the chest the fragments of the fifth rib became what we refer to as secondary missiles and these caused a considerable amount of tissue damage in the point where the missile emerged from the chest. When the wound had been enlarged in order to remove damaged tissue the lung could be expect inspected. It was found that there was a tear in the middle lobe of the lung, which had to be repaired. There was also a small hole in the lower lobe undoubtedly due to a small rib fragment. This was of no consequence. The major problem was a matter of completely controlling all bleeding points, removing all damaged muscle and tissue, and then securing a tight closure of the chest wall so that the right lung could be re-expanded. The Governor’s condition was good during all of this. He was perfectly lucid before anesthesia was started. And from what we know about his injury and his condition at the present time, we have no reason to believe that he won’t completely recover without significant disability of any sort.
Someone asks or says something to him on stage 6:24/10:51 Large Pause.
-someone asks question How long do you feel that inaudible Connally the Governor will be required to stay in the hospital here in Parkland?
I think this is what the guy asked!
—The length of time he will be in the hospital will be determined more by the clearing of the bruise to the right lung and I would estimate that this would be in the neighborhood of 10 to 14 days. This doesn’t mean that this injury will be completely clear by this time, but at least we should have a good idea as to the trend of the clearing.
-Another question inaudible
Pardon? The, the trend of the clearing, uh, whether it is clearing, or not.
-Another question inaudible
We didn’t mention the President to Governor Connally.
-Another inaudible question
-Long Pause and another inaudible question
—-No. They are now uh taking care of the compound fracture of the right radius. As soon as that is is finished (rubs left eye with left hand) he will be taken to the recovery room where he will be carefully watched until he has regained all of his vital signs. Now, his vital signs are good now, but we like to observe them for a period of time. This is a routine measure until blood pressure is stable, respirations are satisfactory, and until the Governor is, uh, fully recovered from the anesthesia, in other words, he’s fully conscious responding rationally to questions.
-Another inaudible question
—–Uh, this is being taken care of. The bullet is in the leg. It hasn’t been removed. This is a very insignificant factor, though. It will be removed.
-The right leg?
—-Left thigh, but there’s no significant injury to the left thigh.
-When will it be removed?
—-Before he goes to the Recovery Room.
-Another inaudible question
—-I think it would be advisable.
-Another inaudible question
No, this is, uh, really a reconstruction of what must have happened. But assuming, of course, uh, we know that the government, the Governor was in the sitting position.
Puts left arm over his right shoulder of back while saying
We know that the wound of entrance is along side the shoulder blade here. 8:54/10:51
then he puts left arm under the right arm to the right shoulder of back here 8:57/10:51
but the wound of exit was here.
has left hand on right chest sort of under right arm 8:59/10:51
We speculate that his arm were perhaps about in this position 9:03/10:51
and that it fractured his arm here 9:05/10:51
and then went on with him sitting into his left thigh.
This is a matter of trying to reconstruct the trajectory of the bullet.
He was shot from above and he was in the sitting position, so we feel that this is all one bullet that, uh
-someone interrupts inaudible
-another inaudible question
Yes, the lung was collapsed, however don’t stress that point.
The lung could be easily re-expanded. It’s like a balloon. You can let it down and blow it up again.
-another question but he turns back to same guy who asks something inaudible about the lung
The lung is now re-expanded.
-another question about the large quantity of blood
We felt that the Governor had lost approximately 1500 CC’s of blood.
We counted in units 500 CC’s to a unit and this is what has been given back to him.
-another inaudible question
Quart and a half.
-Sir, we missed the early part of your uh diagnosis and your expla….. inaudible.
Someone else says: Let’s wait please sir until the other questions are finished. Any other questions?
-What are the.….inaudible
Dr. Robert R. Shaw
sounds just like Bob Barker from
Let’s Make A Deal.
(Does not surprise me after all of the others from Hollywood that seem to be involved!)
and film cuts to Dan Rather in studio:
This is Dan Rather in Dallas, Texas. What you have been watching is the official briefing from the doctor at Dallas’s Parkland Hospital who has been attending shot Texas Governor John Connally. As you heard Governor Connally is in serious, but not critical condition.
Back now to CBS News glitch quarters in New York.
As they did, as you have heard, for Governor Connally of Texas, the doctors did all they could for President Kennedy. Oxygen, blood transfusions, an operation to ease his breathing, but as you know there was really nothing that they could do for the President. The President’s body, President Kennedy’s body will Lie in State at the White House tomorrow according to the Speaker of the House, John McCormick. All day tomorrow the President’s body will Lie in State. McCormack says he thinks the body will then be taken to the Capitol on Sunday to remain in the Great Rotunda of the Capitol until about noon on Monday. Further plans are indefinite, but its understood that the actual funeral services are going to be held in Boston after the Lying in State in Washington. Traditionally, Presidents who die in Office have Lain in State at the Rotunda. Pentagon officials expect the funeral to be a full-dress-state-ceremony and preparations are now going ahead on that assumption. Officials of the military district of Washington said that the President’s family will determine the timing and the scope of the ceremony which now will be held, or its believed will be held, that they will wish to have held, in Boston rather than Washington. All this planning of course is tentative uh the President Kennedy’s body is still en route by air from Dallas where he was slain by an assassin today. Also aboard the Presidential Plane with the body were Mrs. Kennedy the new President Lyndon B. Johnson and Mrs. Johnson. The plane is due at Andrews Air Force Base at 6:05 PM Eastern Standard Time. A well informed source said that first the President’s body would be taken to Bethesda Naval Hospital tonight and the Lying in State uh would begin tomorrow at the White House and then at the Capitol. President Johnson will go to the White House. As you may have heard former President Eisenhower has issued a statement on the death of President Kennedy. The film has just arrived and here is
-I share the sense of shock and dismay that the entire nation must feel at the despicable act that took the life of the nation’s President.
On the personal side, Mrs. Eisenhower and I share the grief that Mrs. Kennedy must now feel and we send to her our frair prayerful thoughts and sympathetic sentiments at this, in this hour.
Press-General, how would you counsel the American people at this time?
—In the face of such a terrible thing I am sure the uh entire citizenry of the nation will join as one man in expressing that not only their grief but their indi indignation at this act and will stand faithfully behind the government.
Press-General could you tell us
how you got the word?
—I was at a meeting uh, uh, for the United Nations. And uh, while there a member of the meeting was called out and they came back and told us the news. Although, at that time, uh, uh we did not know the President was dead. We did not know when I got back here at that time that he was dead. But, um, as a matter of fact we had a– the last message we had was one rather of hope. And the entire company uh merely paused for a minute that they could (at the?) request of the chairman and each of us in his own way uh said a silent prayer for the President.
Press-Should there be any concern, sir, over National Security at a time like this?
-No, I think the whole nation now would be
uh almost all of us
(Very angry and adamant when he says Security Agents!
Press-Will the nation be alright in the few months ahead?
-Oh, I’m not going to uh predict anything of that, I just say this:
the American nation is a people of great common sense and they are not going to be stampeded or bewildered.
Press-Mr. President…I just
History has uh had assassinations uh affected the political course of events?
A bit hard to understand the question I may have it wrong!
Well, of course, in Lincoln’s uh uh assassination you will the uh (garbled) the Presidency went to a man who was a registered Democrat, uh Mr. Johnson. In Garfield, I doubt that there was any. And, of course, McKinnley that brought in uh uh Theodore Roosevelt.
Of course, there have been other attempts in late years: uh, Mr. Cooman was at a grain/grave? threat toward to his life
and Mr. Roosevelt just before he was inaugurated, you remember, down at the, when the Mayor of Surmac was killed – was uh, ran a very grave, uh, risk. They these things have happened and and and and it seems inexplicable to me, because Americans are loyal. And it’s just this uh occasional psychopathic sort of uh uh accident that occurs and I I don’t know what we can do about it.
Who the heck is he talking about?
If anyone knows please send a note in regards to Mr. Cooman. I have no idea what or who he is talking about:)
Press-Could you say anything General about how people will feel abroad from all your experience with your United Nations and others.
How will it be taken abroad?
—Well, I think they will be, uh, a bit bewildered. This um in a civilized countries of the world, this doesn’t happen, uh, so often. And uh, you remember, in the starting of WWI the um murder of the Arch Duke Ferdinand, I think his name was. Why this in itself almost, uh, well it one of the contributory causes to uh that war. And, uh, but here, I I just don’t know what happens. And it. But we are a nation that where our freedoms are allowed or are observed in such a way that everybody is, uh, ready to, I mean, everybody is, uh, you might say, capable of doing this if he’s ready to put his own life on the line.
That last statement is quite fragmented and it just does not make sense,
but maybe someone else can figure it out because I don’t really understand what he is saying.
Obviously, President Eisenhower is visibly upset and is having a hard time expressing himself.
I have to add that the questions are a bit stupid, IMO and seem to be a mock by the press, whether or not they are aware.
Press-General, how will you spend the rest of today, and tomorrow?
-How will you spend the rest of today and then tomorrow?
—I exp, I have cancelled the dinner date that I had for tonight. Tomorrow, I’m going immediately to my home and if I’m wanted for any purpose, whatsoever, I will, of course, be available.
Press-Do you have any advise for the American people at this time sir?
—No, as I said, I know the American people will stand solid and they will not be, uh, stampeded.
Press-Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you.
Al right. Goodnight
I think “the word” the press is mockingly referring to, is the “benediction” given in Dallas at the Trade Mart after the President was assassinated, establishing some sort of power over the people and our government. I think that is pretty evident by the members of the entourage at the airport and their affiliation with the Benedictine order.
Is the Benedictine Order actually followers of the WYRD? How about Opus Dei? Are they involved? I would guess so. Is this the Saxon influence?
Modern usage in Satanism and Paganism
The extreme Satanic organization Order of Nine Angles makes frequent reference to wyrd in its publicly available writings, which Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke’s 2002 book Black Sun speculates may indicate roots in a pre-Christian native tradition of paganism or Wicca.
No wonder. Makes the massacres in our country lately make sense (IN a Wyrd WAY) and the people involved and their appearance as if high and in a trance.
I believe they The Benedictines made a pledge to make our country heel like dogs partially in revenge for our success in WWll
and the bombing of Monte Cassino their Benedictine monastery by our forces
and I believe Eisenhower was President or the commanding General that was involved with that particular offensive in WWll at that particular time.
Something about that monastery seemed extremely important considering the damage done in WWll to other locations and people.
I wonder what was in that location that they were protecting.
Please read about that in the article below:
“This brings us to Benedict and Rome today. Readers will be well aware of the Vatican’s efforts after World War II to dominate Europe through the Treaty of Rome. This strategy was spearheaded by the “St Benedict for first European” campaign conceived during World War II. Pius XII may have been silent about the holocaust but he certainly made waves when one of Benedict’s early monasteries, Monte Cassino, was bombed by the allies. Churchill, unworried, correctly observed, “the enemy fortifications were hardly separate from the building itself”. But Pius castigated it as an “atrocity bombing”. He and his two successors, John XXIII and Paul VI, all vowed to use Benedict’s European credentials to bring the continent to heel.”
Maybe the secret weapon for
the EU was a drug.
Is that what all the licking is about?
CBS News will continue its live coverage throughout this evening. We’ll be back in 30 seconds after a pause for our stations to identify themselves.
Shows American Flag at half mast.
We continue now our reports on the aftermath of President Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Texas. CBS News White House Correspondent Robert Pierpoint was with the Presidential party in Dallas and we switch to Mr. Pierpoint now with Dan Rather at Station KRLD TV in Dallas:
CBS News White House Correspondent Bob Pierpoint has just returned from Parkland Hospital after taking part in the motorcade in which President Kennedy was shot and going immediately to Parkland Hospital; one of the first reporters on the scene. Bob, I know that you have taken copious notes on the whole day so why don’t we begin at the very beginning when the Kennedys arrived in Dallas this morning.
-Well, Dan, uh, I would like to use my notebook to refer to because there’s so many impressions, tragic ideas, and thoughts, going through my mind and, uh, I think I need to refer to this. But I would like to make the point, first of all, that this day has a terrible ironic quality about it, all the way through, as you look back on it: The President’s arrival here in Dallas was uh so warm and and so friendly. Everything seemed to be going so well. He and Mrs. Kennedy had gotten off to a good start in Fort Worth this morning. The President had spoken to a crowd outside his hotel. He was in a very good mood and humor and uh uh as we came into Dallas uh we had of course expected that there might be some protest signs some signs uh against the President but the crowd generally was larger than we had expected and uh friendly and enthusiastic. Everything seemed to be going very well. (licks 9:17/10:14) And we went down the main street of Dallas, I think it’s even called Main Street. Tremendous crowds along the sidewalk cheering and waving flags and shouting (licks 9:27/10:14) and then as we turned the corner to go by a small park right on the edge of town uh we heard three shots. We heard the explosions. We didn’t know what they were.(swipes a huge lick 9:41/10:14) and suddenly the motorcade slowed a little and then the President’s car picked up speed very quickly and disappeared. And, of course, I think all of us at that moment feared something, but we didn’t even dare express it. (licks 9:56/10:14) So I would like now to switch to a description uh that I took notes from on uh Mrs. Connally the Governor of Texas wife who was sitting in the same car with the President and with her husband and with Mrs. Kennedy at the moment that the shots were fired. (licks)
The President’s car was just going under an underpass about to turn onto a freeway and Mrs. Connally says that she was discussing (licks 00:21/10:18) with the President what a warm welcome the Kennedys were receiving, which is one of the terribly ironic things about this this whole tragedy. She says that she had just s said to the President “You can’t say Dallas is not friendly to you today” and she heard a shot fired. (licks 00:40/10:18) And she feels that that first shot was the one that struck the President. Now all the indications we have are that the President never felt a thing. That from that shot which entered his throat (licks0:53/10:18) and probably came out of the other side, the back of his head. From that moment, he was unconscious until he died. Um, Mrs. Connally says that immediately (licks 1:05/10:18) her husband who was sitting just in front of the President on the right side of the car in the jump seat turned and uh(licks 1:14/10:18) as soon as he turned to the President he himself was also hit. Uh, Mrs Kennedy grabbed hold of the President and Mrs. Connally grabbed her husband (licks 1:27/10:18) and she does not, Mrs. Connally, does not recall that the President said anything, nor does anyone else from that moment on. (licks1:36/10:18) Mrs. Connally says that immediately a Secret Service man in the front of the car next to the driver grabbed the telephone and said, “let’s go straight to the hospital” and at that moment, of course, the President’s car sped off and left the motorcade; hit speeds of 50 to 60 miles an hour to the Parkland Memorial Hospital, which was just a few blocks away. (licks 1:57/10:18) Now at the hospital itself uh there were some eyewitness reports to the President’s arrival there. By the time the car reached the hospital the President was lying on the back seat of the car with uh Mrs. Kennedy uh had his head creduled cradled in her lap and uh (swipes a big lick 2:17/10:18) the eyewitnesses say they did not, were not able to see the President’s face, but they did see blood, of course, all over the front of his suit his chest. And he was at that time completely motionless. He was lifted out of the car and placed on a rolling table (licks 2:36/10:18) and uh rolled into the Emergency Ward of the hospital with Mrs. Kennedy walking along beside him. A short while after that, I arrived at the hospital where (licks 2:47/10:18) uh, uh, of course, doctors and nurses and Secret Service agents and Police were all hurrying back and forth. Everyone showing strain, uh a great deal of uh worried whispering outside the room where the President was being operated on. As we’ve heard later 8 to 10 doctors actually worked frantically to to try and save the President, but apparently (licks 3:13/10:18) there was very little hope, uh, from the time he arrived at the hospital.
Uh, about uh, one o’clock rumors began to spread that the President had died. We were not able to confirm this. Uh, two priests did go in (licks 3:29/10:18) and I talked to them as they emerged from the room where the President was and, and uh, they said that they had administered the last rites. I said, “Is he still alive?” And the priest said only his condition is critical. (licks 3:42/10:18) So, at that time, I do not know whether he was dead yet. But uh, there were other indications. For instance, Senator Yarborough of Texas who had been with the party (licks 3:53/10:18) told me that he he felt the situation was extremely serious. And, and then he began to break down. And, I asked him if the President was still alive, and he said, “I just don’t know.”
Malcolm Kilduff licking and announcing the death of President Kennedy
Um, a short while later the Assistant uh Press Secretary Mr. Kildoff came out and said that he had an announcement for us. Uh, we gathered and he told us that at 1 PM the President had died of a gun shot wound. Um, (licks 4:22/10:18) from that moment, of course, officially interest had to turn to Vice President Lyndon Johnson. And uh a short time after that Mr. and Mrs. Johnson, President and Mrs. Johnson hurried out of the Emergency Ward of the hospital (swipes a big lick 4:38/10:18) surrounded by Secret Service man, uh were rushed into a car and off to the airport. About, uh, 15 minutes after that, uh a bronze casket was brought into the Emergency Ward of the hospital (licks 4:53/10:18) and uh while we waited a white ambulance drove up.
I saw the President’s secretary that is the d d dead President President Kennedy’s Secretary Mrs. Evelyn Lincoln standing out there by the white ambulance and, of course, she looked like she was in a state of shock as I think all of us were at that time. (licks 5:13/10:18) Uh, I saw Mrs Kennedy’s Press Secretary Pamela Turner face very drawn and pale as they waited for the casket to be brought out. At, uh, I would estimate about uh 1:40 (licks 5:28/10:18) uh the bronze casket was borne out. Uh, uh it was a a large crowd of officials around it: Secret Service agents. I, I caught sight of General Clifton, the President’s Military Aide (licks 5:40/10:18) carrying one corner of the casket. And I saw Mrs. Kennedy um going walking along beside it. And uh they rushed it out to the airport. It was put on Air Force One, the President’s plane, where the swearing-in ceremonies were held for the Vice President who is now President Johnson. And they departed, the casket, Mrs. Kennedy, and the new President of the United States, for Washington.
This is Robert Pierpoint in Dallas and now back to CBS News in New York.
These are the fragments of history as they begin to be assembled on this day of historic tragedy.
We here at CBS News have been on the air continuously since the first announcement. We will continue to stay on the air.
This is a special announcement by Frank Stanton, President of the Columbia Broadcasting System: (licks 6:34/10:18)
In respect for the feelings of a shocked nation the CBS Television Network and the CBS Radio Network will carry no commercial announcements and no entertainment programs until after the President’s funeral. CBS will continue to bring all the news relating to this tragic event: memorials and special broadcasts and all other news of importance throughout this period. A statement by the President of the Columbia Broadcasting System.
Similarly, in Britain, both the BBC and the Commercial Television Network there have suspended all their broadcasts and are playing funeral music in tribute to the late President Kennedy.
There have been many developments, great and small, all over the country and all over the world. There have been statements with which we can’t keep up by so many people from the heads of nations to small people in every country in the world.
In the United States, the major Stock Exchanges of the nation shut down today minutes after the fatal shooting of the President. Stock prices on the New York Stock Exchange took their worst tumble since the so-called Black Monday in May of 1962. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 21.16 points to 7hundred 11.49 Now, that’s in Black Monday in the May of 1962 it fell 34 points.
The Yale Harvard Football Game has been cancelled. A statement by, a joint statement by, the President of Harvard Mr. Puucy and the President of Yale announced the cancellation of the traditional Yale-Harvard Football Game.
(in background voice says)-Hold that shot.
This is St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City where a Memorial Mass has been said for President Kennedy.
We have many statements from (licks8:51/10:18) all over the nation. Many things have happened. I’ve just announced the cancellation of the Yale Harvard Football Game at Madison Square Garden.
Uh, the cancellation has been announced of a Prize Fight between Allen Thomas and Johnny Pursall because of the, of the, Presidents death.
Roosevelt Raceway in Long Island has cancelled its Harness Racing card.
The border between the United States and Mexico (licks9:19/10:18) was sealed immediately after the assassination of President Kennedy uh by US authorities probably to forestall any possible escape by the uh assassin of the President from Dallas, Texas.
In London, a group of 61 New York bound airline passengers, almost all of them Americans, were about to board their plane when somebody cried that the President was dead. “Who said that?” shouted a middle-aged woman. The passengers reacted with shock, disbelief, as they did in so many other places. (licks 9:53/10:18) Uh, Americans caught in strange parts of the world learning of, of, of the death of the President.
In Rome, in Vatican City, Pope Paul the 6th prayed tonight for the soul of the President. The Pope received the news only a few moments after the President had died. President Kennedy, of course, was received an audience by the Pope in June during a visit he made to, uh, Italy.
United Nations Ambassador Adelai Stevenson paid tribute to the late President.
Here is what he said:
-The tragedy of this day is beyond instant comprehension. All of us who knew him will bear the grief of his death to the day of ours. And all men everywhere who love peace and freedom and justice will bow their heads. At such a moment we can only turn to prayer. Prayer to comfort our grief, to sustain Mrs. Kennedy and his family, to strengthen President Johnson, and to guide us in the time to come.
May God help us.
Back to Charles Collingwood one of Murrow’s clan.
There has been much eloquence in reaction to the death of the President
and much inarticulate grief expressed by simple people throughout the world.
Statements by important people continue to come in to us.
One by Governor George Romney of Michigan which was issued in Omaha, Nebraska where he’s attending the Governor’s Conference. “The President’s assassination is a horrible immeasurable shock and a national tragedy. It is imperative,” said Governor Romney, “that the assassin or assassins and any influence behind them or associated with them be identified. Upon behalf of all Michigan citizens I extend our heartfelt grief and sympathy to the President’s family. Let us unite,” said the Republican Governor of Michigan,” behind our new President and give him loyal support. Our grief should renew our dedication to serve our country. “
White House sources say that President Kennedy’s body will be taken to Bethesda Naval Hospital when it arrives in Washington shortly after 6:00 o’clock tonight Eastern Standard Time. (licks 2:06/10:06) Vice President or the habit is still strong with all of us. (because he called him Vice instead of Pres.?) The new President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson, will go directly to the White House from Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Maryland.
A statement come to us by
President of the National Council of Churches:
“This young man, our President, rests now in the care of his Heavenly Father.
He came to responsibility in a time of difficulty and peril
and he lead the nation with courage and dignity.”
according to the National Council of Churches?
The ecumenical movement? Combining errors upon errors? Opus Dei (very secret organization), Catechumenal Way, 2nd Vatican Council?
JFK leaves warnings about Secret Societies and I’ll bet he meant the above movements
in all like–ly–hood
since they began when he died.
I should repeat to you a statement about the (licks 2:46/10:06) intentions of this broadcasting network made by Frank Stanton President of the Columbia Broadcasting System: In respect for the feelings of a shocked nation (licks 2:59/10:06) the CBS Television Network and the CBS Radio Network will carry no commercial announcements and no entertainment programs until after the President’s funeral. CBS will continue to bring all the news relating to this tragic event: memorials and special broadcasts and all other news of importance throughout this period. (licks 3:20/10:06)
As the first shock reaction to the President’s death begins to be absorbed people are (big lick 3:36/10:06) trying to access not only the influence of this tragic event on the affairs of our nation and the world, but to make an assessment of President Kennedy’s role.
An assessment of President Kennedy’s role as an international figure now from Marvin Kalb in Washington:
– Charles, possibly we might start that assessment by pointing out that the chief adversary of the President, the Russians, Nikita Kruschev, to be quite specific. They’re 8 hours behind us in time and it was quite late in the evening when the news of the President’s assassination reached Moscow. I suppose that millions of Russian families were seated in their living rooms and their dining rooms, watching television when suddenly there was a most unusual thing on Moscow television: a bulletin from Tass, the Soviet News Agency all the way from New York. It said that an attempt had been made on Mr. Kennedy’s life. And Tass said: by persons believed to be among extreme right wing elements. Within the hour, Tass came back with another bulletin that Mr. Kennedy was dead.
No one knows exactly where Premier Nikita Kruschev is at the moment. A few days ago we know that he was in Kiev and he met there with the Danish Prime Minister. (licks 4:53/10:08) We can be reasonably sure that there’s one major topic on his mind just as on the minds of most people at the State Department today, tonight, and probably throughout the weekend: What affect will the President’s death have upon East-West Relations? People at the State Department asked that question today and it’s all too soon to come up with any kind of an answer. It’s hard to gauge really what their reaction is going to be and what the reaction of the Soviet Union is going to be. Officially, undoubtedly from the Kremlin and from Nikita Kruschev, as Prime Minister of the Soviet Union, there will be expressions of regret. Probably from Nikita Kruschev the expressions of sincere regret, because since the Bay of Pigs, at the time of the Bay of Pigs rather, he really did not have, it is believed, a very high regard for John F. Kennedy.(licks 5:43/10:08) But at the time they met in Vienna, he learned to respect the President. He learned to respect the President’s determination to protect the interests of the Western world and the interests of the United States.
Kruschev is brought up in a political system that comes to believe that individuals make policy, not institutions, which is the way the United States believes. Theyre/there/their very quickly after the death of one President another man can assume total responsibility for the foreign policy of the United States. That is now the responsibility of Lyndon Johnson. But in a Soviet context it’s too uncertain, too difficult to try to assess this entire thing. And now, with respect to questions like: Will the Russians begin to take advantage of the situation in the Western world and underdeveloped parts of the world now that there is uncertainty and some confusion and bewilderment here in Washington? I would suspect that the answer is no. (licks 6:36/10:08) Nikita Kruschev understands just as John F. Kennedy understood and Lyndon Johnson must now come to understand that in the United States and the Soviet Union there are two nations which command enormous destructive power and it is in the hands of the man who runs the White House and the man who runs the Kremlin to determine just whether this power is going to be used. And I would really suspect that at a moment like this of uncertainty in East-West relations, as well as, uncertainty in the United States uh the Kremlin will not seek to take advantage. I think that the Kremlin will probably sit tight for quite some time and make very, very certain of just in which direction American Foreign Policy is going to move.
The chief architect, the most experienced man in commanding American Foreign Policy now is the Secretary of State. (big lick 7:26/10:08) He was on board a jet liner an hour after leaving Honolulu for Tokyo for a very important economic conference there with the Japanese when the pilot uh called back and said, “Mr. Secretary, the President has been shot in Dallas.” He ordered the plane turned around immediately to be flown to Washington. That plane is now expected here at about 1:15 tomorrow morning. A few minutes later, Under Secretary of State George Ball called the Secretary and said that the President had been shot. The Secretary said he knew that the plane was already on its way back to Washington. Three or 4 minutes after that the Secretary learned by radio that the President was dead. He will be in at 1:15.
Thats all from here, Charles. Now back to CBS News in New York:
Back to Charles Collingwood
The new President of the United States, Lyndon Johnson, with whom Premier Kruschev will have to reckon from now on, is flying back to Washington at this moment. He will arrive in about 40 minutes, a little after 6:00 Eastern Standard Time.
Already, President Johnson has begun to gather into his hands the reins and responsibilities of government. Immediately after he was sworn in in the Executive Cabin of the Presidential Plane at Dallas’s Love airfield this afternoon, he said, “Okay, let’s get this plane back to Washington,” and they took off.
After (licks 8:54/10:08) they land in the Washington area this evening, President Johnson will go directly to the White House where he will meet with Defense Secretary McNamara and White House National Security Aide McGeorge Bundy, and then confer with bi-partison leaders of the Congress. The other Cabinet members, or at least many of them, 6 of them as you heard, were on their way to the Far East and are now air-born returning will not arrive until later. Secretary of State Rusk is with them and of course the new President Mr. Johnson will confer with them later.
The President’s body, which is also being born back to Washington by airplane (licks 9:34/10:08) will go first to the Bethesda Naval Hospital and then tomorrow it will lie in repose in the East Room of the White House. (licks 9:44/10:08)
A CBS Mobile Unit is standing by now at Hollywood and Vine Streets in Los Angelos.
We switch there now to CBS News Correspondent Charles Coralt:
You see Defense Secretary McNamara and George Borough and the Secretary of State now moving off to the side. Apparently they are going to board helicopters for the trip to the White House and a special bi-partisan meeting with President Johnson. Now President Johnson is coming down the ramp out the backdoor reserved for Presidents accompanied by Lady Bird, his wife.
The new President of the United States shakes hands with Secret Service Chief, James Rowley.
Rowley is now pointing the direction of the battery of microphones,
(the man on the left called Secret Service Chief James Rowley who has acquired Franklin Graham’s face, his mannerisms and his body language! How about that hand, or is it a claw?
Here is a picture of Franklin Graham with that strange claw following:
What happened to his little finger? Where did it go?
Did he forget to wear his little finger in this sermon/speech?
In fact, if you watch each individual carefully many of them are a changin’, but you have to follow each individual to see who is mutating. I don’t know how they do it…… but they are. It sounds crazy, but it is occurring! LBJ seems to be himself though. Which now after hearing the story about LBJ in the bathroom of the plane after the assassination crying and saying “They’re going to get us all.”
IT Shirley MAKES SENSE!
but first the new President is heading off to shake hands with a congressional delegation: Hale Boggs, Congressman Aldridge, uh Rowley, Halleck the Republican leader of the House, uh, all members. And there’s Speaker McCormack, Carl Vinson the Chairman of the powerful Arms Service Committee in the House. There’s Senator Harkin, Senator Hagin, and many others.
Rowley is in charge obviously!…..>
He is directing everyone!
George Reedy, for years the Special uh Assistant and Advisor to then Senator Johnson, then Vice President Johnson. And now Senator Johnson standing by his side. Now the new Senator starts to move towards the microphone. The change in hands of the Chief of State that took place a few hours earlier in Texas, now being dramatized here at Andrews Air Force Base as the new President addresses the microphone.
Looks like Franklin Graham posing as Chief Rowley of Secret Service above and turns into a young Pope Benedict.
Here are some shots of Prince Charles in uniform. checkout the man in other picture with the draped chain on his shoulders above.
Naturally makes me think of the book called
written by Tim Cohen who also wrote
Ladies and Gentlemen the President of the United States.
Are you Ready?
I guess he wasn’t sure if he was Ready (as in Jack Ready) since they seem to mutate.
Reminds me of a children’s book called Are You My Mother which is about a little bird who falls out it’s nest early from a tree who doesn’t recognize what his mother looks like. The baby bird questions all sorts of animals and objects from cows to fork lifters asking
“Are you my mother?”
(Which it seems in this case he might have meant “mother country.”
Then Russian President Vladimir Putin look-alike comes to the microphone and LBJ says something I cannot understand.
The new President looking pale and resolute (“people come over here” is said in background) apparently waiting for last minute instructions as to what he should talk. (speak or say would have been a better word) We’ll be quiet now and wait for the new President’s word.
(hope you read the article below in reference to incorrect words in their context and the implications of those errors)
Incidentally, this is in the news today Wed July 11th 2012
And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
I have no idea if this verse applies, but is coincidental to say the least.
I do not trust the Press whatsoever and their manipulation of news (LOL), hence an unusual power,
uh, you know,
the press of the whatever, by the whatever, and for whatever.
But bucklers and shields seems to date this verse to a time when armies actually used them!
However, if this is a spiritual battle then this may well not be so predated!
It does sound spiritual to me.
(and a bit of Billy Graham bashing for his lust for bloody martyrdom by crucifixion)
-It is a sad time for all people.
We have suffered a loss that cannot be weighed. For me, it is a deep, personal tragedy.
I know that the world shares the sorrow that Mrs. Kennedy and her family bear.
I will do my best. That is all I can do. I ask for your help, and God’s.
Those words from the new President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson.
Words felt by all Americans.
- SS Chief Rowley (whoever he is, whatever it is) leading LBJ
- and seemingly in charge directing this Act
Now President Johnson goes over to confer, shake hands briefly, with Everit Dirkson, uh with the Republican leader in the House, Senator Mike Mansfield, the Majority Leader the Democratic Leader.
I mean in the Senate. Dirkson, of course, from the Senate, too. OOPs!
There’s a huddle there. There’s apparently the new President and his Congressional leaders from both parties a bi-partisan group confer to what happens next in this hectic tragic day.
We were told before the arrival of President Johnson by Senator Dirkson and Senator Mansfield that a bi-partisan meeting had been called by President Johnson at the White House between 7:00 and 7:30 this evening.
Helicopters are standing by. Their props have not turned yet. We don’t know whether the 10 or 12 mile trip into the District of Columbia and the White House will be made by auto or by helicopter, but the choppers are waiting just in case they are required. For a man who must feel an almost crushing burden of awesome responsibility on his shoulders right now, the new President looks composed and resolved as he slowly makes his way through a crowd shaking hands. Most of the Legislative leaders are their personal friends.
An historic, but aching, moment here at Andrews Air Force Base.
About 3000 people are waiting behind a roped barrier at the air terminal. Uhh I would guess almost a hundred reporters and photographers are clustered out behind a roped off area here just in front of Air Force One, the Presidential Plane. A bank of cameras lined up at one side to record the picture and words of the new President as he spoke briefly to us here. Uh cables crisscross the airport ramp.
A sea of confusion, turmoil, concern, worry. The Red SEA?
Now the new President enters the same helicopter that our former President John Kennedy used so many times. Apparently, in a few moments time the helicopter will whisk him away from Andrews Air Force Base. Take him to the South Lawn of the White House where he will step out, walk about 4 or 5 dozen steps, and enter an Oval Room which he has been in many times before but never in quite the same way because this time it will be his office, the President’s office. And from there, we believe he will go to the adjoining Cabinet Room and meet there with the nation’s leaders to plot what to do, what steps to take, in the sad and terrible hour in the history of the country.
About 10 minutes ago the Navy ambulance bearing the body of former President Kennedy left for Bethesda Naval Hospital. We believe that Mrs. Kennedy was riding in the back seat of the ambulance. She was composed. She walked down the steps under her own power. She had her chin up as she stepped into the ambulance that contained the body of her husband.
Now the props on the Army helicopter begin to spin. The helicopter bearing President Johnson, Defense Secretary McNamara, and some other officials whom we did not catch as they walked up the little ramp to the chopper. Behind the Presidential helicopter is another one just off in the darkness We can’t make out anything more than it’s blinking light and a swirling prop, but we understand that it bears other members of the delegation which will confer at the White House in just about 15 or 20 minutes from now.
Now the Honor Guard behind us slowly marches off the .…….???garbled Kate is idled mornful???
The last of the limouzines pull away. The Presidential helicopter moves away from the pad. And that just about concludes the story at Andrews. To sum up once again there will be a Legislative meeting called by President Johnson his first official act at the White House beginning in just a very few moments. It will be a bi-partisan meeting including members of both parties: Republicans and Democrats alike. As they will hear from the new President his personal thoughts, his strategy, what should be done, and how they can help him.
And now the helicopter carrying President Johnson is airborne. It is moving toward the White House. And the second chopper behind it in a procession is also off the ground making its way away from Andrews Air Force Base back to our 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for a landing on the South Lawn and a short walk into the Oval Room of the President of the United States.
That about wraps up the story. This is Charles Von Fremd…..reporting from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
You have seen live from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland the arrival of the plane from Dallas, Texas carrying the body of former Presi the late President Kennedy and also bringing Mrs. Kennedy and new President Lyndon Baines Johnson.
The uh advances in technology which permit historic events like this to be seen by people as they happen also bring some of their own disadvantages. The ability to see President Johnson in his first public appearance since tragedy forced him into this office also meant that because of the noise in the place it was hard to hear his words. They were very brief. He expressed the sympathy that everybody feels for Mrs. Kennedy and for the nation. He stressed his responsibilities and he said that he needs everybody’s help. As Charles Von Fremd reported he is going to start getting that help in a meeting in just a few minutes from now at the White House with top leaders of the Administration.
President Johnson, while as Eric Severeid mentioned earlier, has somewhat faded from public view in the last 3 years since he has been Vice President, has been very much in the console of the administration. It is uh it is probable that he is more informed, for instance, than President Truman was when he took over on the death of Franklin Roosevelt in 1945. And President Johnson is a man used to working with all kinds of people in all kinds of situations.
He is certainly not a
He was seen by all of the people in the United States who wanted to watch at the moment.
It’s a lot different, from the, from any occasion like this that has ever taken place in American history before.
President Johnson was sworn in on an aeroplane. I don’t think anybody else has been before.
And to appear on television, live television, within hours of his excession (devilish act)
(licks mouth at 1:11/10:33)
In other words
a BLACK SWAN EVENT
“A metaphor to help explain this phrase is that of a successful aboriginal culture
suddenly finding ocean-going vessels on its shores for the first time……”
“The book’s epilogue reveals that the Excession is a sentient entity
which is currently acting as a bridge
for a procession of even higher beings which travel between universes”
I think this is what is occurring on earth and the events in the past are affected
as well as the present and the future. That is why the past seems to change or fluctuate because in a way it is still occurring.
What we do and what we don’t do
does make a difference even then.
which I believe involved cloaking!)
WWI and WWII, The State of Israel,
and the events involved are not coincidental!
I wish people would
start to notice
what a few of these newsmen
have tried to communicate to the public covertly
that should not be ignored!
(There were a few other temples gifted from Egypt to Spain and Holland, I think (HOLES/infernals), and they are related to the Temple of Demdur.
One was set up kind of strangely with a doorway in the wrong order and seems to affect possibly their order of language.)
Summing up the way things stand at the moment: President Kennedy’s body is on the way in a Navy ambulance with his wife and his brother riding with him to Bethesda Navy Hospital where it will be, where it will spend the night. Tomorrow it will be on view in the White House from 10:00 o’clock until 6:00 o’clock, but not for public view. The immediate family will see it. The new President will see it. High officials of this government will see it. Anything else in the way of funeral arrangements has not yet been clarified. Regulations of the Roman Catholic Church are pretty specific on how soon a funeral must take place, but of course all regulations can be suspended or changed in the case of the death of a Head of State.
The President’s children Caroline who is almost 6 and John who are almost 3 were in the White House today at the time of the assassination. The last report we had which was sometime ago they had not been told of their father’s death. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Sargent Shriver who’s a brother-in-law of the President and was frequently been called upon to handle things for the Kennedy family of this nature where they need someone very close to them but not a blood relative. As I said no announcement has been made about when or where the funeral will be.
(licks mouth 2:31/10:33)
In Dallas, a 24 year old man is being held as the prime suspect in the assassination. His name is Lee Oswald. He’s from the far left. He’s Chairman of a very pro-Castro outfit called The Fair Play For Cuba Committee. In 1959, the information we have, says that he defected to Russia. And presumably if he defected he since came back or he wouldn’t be in Dallas. He’s also accused, at the moment, of killing a policeman who chased him into a theater shortly after the President was shot to death and Governor John Connally was wounded in Dallas. He was seized by another Dallas Policeman. He wore a white shirt and a dark trousers. He’s being questioned, I imagine extremely intensively, right now.
At the ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base
Was there a ceremony?
(licks mouth 3:24/10:33)
were present a congressional delegation, old friends of both new President Johnson and of the late President Kennedy’s. The Menorah majority and minority leader of the Senate, and of the House, Secretary of Defense McNamara were among those who got into the helicopter with President Johnson for the trip to the White House grounds. At that meeting that their going to have at 7:00 o’clock or about 7:00 o’clock will be presumably all the Cabinet members who are available, plus leaders of the Congress, the men that President Johnson is so used to working with.
(turns head to the right and licks mouth 3:56/10:33)
Odd that he mispronounced majority and said menorah instead!
The New York papers got the news into their late afternoon editions. This is a kind of headline that I don’t suppose we’ve seen since V-J day or V-E day. About uh the biggest type that the newspapers have brought out. It’s that kind of headline that appeared when Franklin President when President Franklin Roosevelt died in 1945 and when the war ended. Nothing since then has that been that big news for the American people. (licks mouth 4:38/10:33).
The last time, the last time that anybody tried to assassinate a President of the United States, at least to the point where shots were actually fired, was in the case of President Truman. That was unsuccessful. Before that, it was the President elect Franklin D. Roosevelt who was shot at in Florida in 1932. That was an attempt which killed Mayor Anton Cermac of Chicago, but President elect Roosevelt missed. The last attempt to assassinate a President which succeeded was William McKinnley. Theodore Roosevelt succeeded to the President on to the Presidency on that occasion. He ran again the next year. People whose thoughts inevitably turned to the conduct of this country are already speculating about what this unbelievable event, what effect it will have on a situation which was already fairly tangled politically in this United States.

Basically, BIG BROTHER IS HERE and it is evil!
Among other things it now becomes of interest as to who now will succeed to the Presidency. This question came up, if you will remember very sharply at the time of President Eisenhower’s heart attack. At which time there was a great deal of talk about what the succession of the Presidency should be and what should determine the inability of a President if he has not able to conduct the office, but is still alive. There was talk of new legislation at that time, but nothing was done. At present, the rule of governing the succession are in a law passed by Congress in 1947. The first succession, of course, is by the Vice-President. That post is now vacant now that Lyndon Johnson is President of the United States. There is no provision for selecting a new Vice President. That office will be dispensed with until the next election. Next in order in the line of succession to the Presidency of the United States is the Speaker of the House of Representatives who is now John W. McCormack of Massachusetts. Following that, as the President pro tempra of the Senate now Senator Hayden of Arizona. Then after that the members of the Cabinet in the traditional order of the of the precedence of the Cabinet, uh Secretary of State which is Dean Rusk would be first, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara would be second, Attorney General Robert Kennedy of Massachusetts would be third, Post Master General would be fourth, and so on. The uh question of how far down you go in establishing who is going to be President of the United States probably didn’t worry the country for most of its history. (licks mouth 7:18/10:33).
There was some attention paid to it and the line was clearly established
after it became quite possible that in an era of air attack and then later in an era of atomic war,
you might have to go down very deep to get somebody.
We are now seeing pictures of the White House. President Johnson is now arriving there and we switch there for a report:
Someone in background says “No Audio” a few times and then says “Harry”
We have lost temporarily the switch to the White House where President Johnson is arriving after his helicopter trip from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. We were talking about the succession of the Presidency which has become again of immediate and tragic interest of the country. There is no, this is one of the things that the government of the United States has never spelled out too clearly. It’s the government must go on and its activities be carried on. It’s regarded traditionally as being necessary very quickly to get a new President sworn in. President Truman was sworn in, as I remember, it was in, oh certainly less than a couple of hours after President Roosevelt died, in 1945. At that time, he conscience of the sudden burden that had fallen on him, asked Mrs. Roosevelt.
He said uh something to the effect of what can I do for you and she said,
“Mr. President, it is now for us to ask, “what we can do for you.”
Geez, this sounds like the infamous words (in a different format) from what President Kennedy is partially famous for:
In a way, the grief felt by members of the family or indeed by anybody in the nation or the world, has to be secondary to the matter of carrying on the government. The nation goes on no matter how what happens to its Chief Executive.
(slightly licks mouth 9:10/10:33)
When the Presidential Plane Air Force One arrived from Texas carrying both the body and the new President and the mourning wife, the body of John Kennedy was taken off in a mobile ramp and put into a a Navy ambulance to go to Bethesda Hospital for the night before being removed to the White House for viewing tomorrow.
Mrs. Kennedy, so far as we could see, went with it and so did Attorney General Robert Kennedy, the Presidents brother and certainly his closest confidant. (licks mouth 9:48/10:33)
Then President Johnson got off the plane and made a brief statement. He looked uh you can’t characterize from this distance what a man’s complexion is like in the li in television lights at an Air Force Base at night. The man on the scene said that he looked pale, but he certainly seemed in in confident command of himself. (10:13/10:33 licks mouth) He is a man who has had a long training in politics and the business of running the government. The shock that must have come to him is unlikely would prevent his immediate and careful attention of the business of a government that has to go on.
It does not come. (licks mouth o:14/10:22) The assassination of the President does not come at any moment of great international crisis for the United States. He himself was on a trip which most people believe to be have a great many political aspects to it. However, the mere fact of assassination produces a crisis, in a way, which is part of the reason why President Johnson presumably flew immediately back to Washington to be in the White House to see what develops in the next couple of days. (licks mouth 00:42/10:22)
Repeating there are no, there’s no word yet on funeral arrangements, where or when. The body of the former President will lie in the White House tomorrow for viewing by members of his family and high officials of the government beginning with Vice Presi, beginning with President Johnson, members of the Supreme Court, and members of the Congress, and late in the day, the Diplomatic Corps. (licks mouth 1:08/10:22)
There’s been no formal word so far on whether there will be a public viewing, but one guess is, that it’s likely that the body will be moved to the capitol to Lie in State there, for the purposes, for the chance for ordinary citizens to pay their respects.
We showed earlier a picture of Lee Oswald, a stock photograph, the man who is at the moment the prime suspect in the assassination.
Here is a more topical version.
This was Oswald as he looked today after his arrest. He seems to have, in the struggle, in the struggle leading to his arrest
he seems to have been roughed up a little. He’s accused too of killing a Dallas Policeman who chased him into a theater at the time that attention was focused on him.
This is the man who is Chairman of a pro-Castro organization called The Fair Play For Cuba Committee. Twenty-four years old. A man who once defected to Russia. A man who according to the news reports is now the prime suspect in this assassination. (licks mouth 2:19/10:22)
CBS News will continue on the air throughout the evening with late reports on the aftermath of President Kennedy’s assassination and with a pictorial tribute to the late President. Stay tuned now for the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite. This is the CBS Television Network.
Pause with Flag at half mast picture
This is Walter Cronkite with the CBS Evening News.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated today in the 46th year of his life and his 3rd year as President of the United States. These are the circumstances of the assassination. The President and Governor John Connally of Texas were shot while riding in the Presidential Limousine through the streets of Dallas. The President was shot once or twice through the head by a sniper firing from a 5th or 6th story window overlooking the motorcade route. They were rushed to a nearby hospital. The President died about half an hour later at 1:00 PM Dallas Time.
(licks mouth at 3:43/10:22)
There is a question in my mind about what Dallas Time really is. I know that it has been changed in the past and that there is dispute between Eddie Barker and Walter Cronkite as to which time is Dallas Time. It makes a huge difference what time it was when President Kennedy actually died. I’ll explain later why I think it is important and I believe the crux of the matter and the reason
for the great deception
surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy!
In Part 4 of this series CBS News and JFK Part 4 /part 37 there is a report from Moscow and Moscow is 10 hours difference from Dallas now. It appears that he died around noon in Dallas which begs the question about the Son of Man and whether JFK was that person in our time which is odd considering all of the claims and rumors of his affairs including a Wheaton College gal, a White House intern, who he is supposed to have bedded in his wife’s bed (who in my opinion is lying or deceived.)
Wheaton College is where Billy Graham and his buddy went to school
which is coincidental to say the least.
Both Billy Graham and his buddy from Wheaton College are at Love Field airport with Jackie a half hour before JFK was murdered when she was handed a Lamb Chops puppet (or stuffed animal) over the fence line which she tucked into her red roses. That puppet or stuffed animal is shredded to bits as pictured in the Limousine. One of the witnesses thought she saw a little white dog between the President and Jackie as he was murdered and was ridiculed for this particular recollection. Why?
Somehow the man that calls an old man to wish him happy birthday that morning just doesn’t seem like the same man that the press and others have made him out to be.
Maybe the press is the mob!
Seems to me like JFK has been done over in many ways after his death to be someone else!!!!!
Bill Clinton had an affair with an intern
and it seems awful coincidental to me since he prayed with Billy Graham
who looks to be involved in the assassination of JFK,
Vatican 2, and the Neocatechumenal Way!
Governor Connally’s condition is satisfactory. Both Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Connally were in the car, neither was injured.
Later in the afternoon the Dallas Police arrested Lee H. Oswald, 24, a veteran of the leftist Fair Play For Cuba Committee as a prime suspect. (licks mouth 4:01/10:22) Oswald was dragged fighting and screaming from a Dallas movie theater. He also killed a Dallas Police Officer in that fight at the theater. Oswald went to Russia in 194……59. He returned to this country only last year after failing and trying to get Soviet citizenship.
Still pictures show the last dramatic moments of President Kennedy’s life. This the motorcade. (licks lips 4:27/10:22)
This picture taken in the last minute before the shot was fired. You see in the back seat President Kennedy and Mrs. Kennedy in the front seat or in the jump seats of the special Presidential Motorcade car, Mrs. Connally and Governor Connally behind her.
A bit confusing since the picture shows the opposite!
(Maybe that is a clue from Walter Cronkite that since he is licking means he is lying?)
And this is a picture taken just a moment after the shooting.
See the guy on the left standing (2nd person on the left) looks like a JFK assassination investigator. I recognize him, but I can not remember his name, which is weird since this is supposed to be as it happened. I guess that is not true. So if he is in this picture then this picture could be a fake made after the assassination, which means that this section of the Cronkite news program could be a fake, also.
This picture below is full of demonic symbols on the car and in the windows.
The F on the side of the car.
An ugly woman cartoonish character on the right window driver’s side.
Upside down cross in the window of the windshield.
Lots of little demonic messages.
Obviously was not as it happened but added for the “whatever effect.”
Bald spot on back or head of Jack Ready/Billy Graham.
If I wanted to bother with it I would look more closely but this is insanity
don’t want to waste my time on it anymore.
This is a closeup of that same picture and in this closeup you can see in this position here barely you may see there the hands of the President apparently clutching Mrs. Kennedy. A moment later she placed his bleeding head in her lap and they drove rapidly to the hospital.
I don’t see her! Terrible picture
none (NUN) the less and looks
This is a picture taken within an hour after the Presidents death aboard the jet airplane that brought now President Johnson back to Washington.
Here he is taking the Oath of Office with Mrs. Johnson here and Mrs. Kennedy looking on.
The Judge giving the Oath is Federal District Judge Sarah Hughes of Texas. (and in a polka dot dress)
At 3:39 this afternoon Eastern Time in that Presidential jet parked at Dallas airport Lyndon Baines Johnson became the 36th President of the United States. (licks mouth 5:55/10:22)
Obviously, there is a dispute as to whether and which President of the United States is the 36th President. I am not sure why it makes a difference, but differing views on this point seem to be important! It’s relevance has something to do with Numerology or Prophecy, I guess?
What the heck is going on in the CBS studio with the armed man with the holstered gun on is hip lurking behind Walter Cronkite
and then someone else comes into the picture and shoves and pushes him backwards?
Real weird looking humanoid with weird face. Reptilian.
This occurs at 5:55/10:22! VERY WEIRD!!!
The oath administered by Federal Judge Hughes.
The first time it’s ever been administered by a woman.
Late this afternoon the President’s own plane brought his body,
Mrs. Kennedy, and the new President back to Washington
in company uh with NOW President Johnson.
(licks mouth at 6:10/10:22)
President Johnson arrived at Washington just a short while ago as you just saw by video tape.(licks mouth at 6:17/10:22)
He is now in the saddened White House.
Sounds like Nellie Connally and her sad pink suit which I wrote about in few earlier posts which are specifically about her
which you can find on the side bar.
George Herman is standing by there. George Herman?
The word went out to the Presidential White House guards here to the Secret Service men, the President is in the White House. Only this time it was a different president President Lyndon B. Johnson led into the White House by the Secret Service men.
This is symbolic of the new life Lyndon Johnson is going to lead. His every step guided by Secret Service men. His way pointed out for him. Protocol guarding and making sure of every move that he makes.
The President is in the White House. Across the street crowds are watching the White House hoping for a glimpse of their new President. There’s a steady stream of people walking back and forth across the sidewalk. The police won’t let them stop on this side of the street, but they walk back and forth simply looking at the White House. And across the street a large crowd has waited all afternoon.
Now the President is getting his first briefing as President. A briefing by Defense Secretary McNamara, by McGeorge Bundy who was President Kennedy’s National Security Advisor. A briefing on the world problems, the problems he faces from now on.
The problems look different when you are President. You may remember that President Kennedy said after he took office at his first news conference that although he campaigned on facing up with the grim realities of the world today, he was astonished when he actually sat in the President’s chair and faced those grim realities himself.
Now Defense Secretary McNamara and McGeorge Bundy are briefing him in such terms as megadeathsWhite House and Pentagon shorthand for the millions of deaths which are now in the hands of President Lyndon Johnson in case there should be a thermal nuclear exchange. The words death of earth are being exchanged once again in a briefing of the President that those in a nuclear exchange which might lethally contaminate the atmosphere and kill all persons on earth, now the responsibility of a new man, President Lyndon Johnson.
Lyndon Johnson must not only face up to the problems all over the world from Viet Nam to Berlin to all the problems which other Presidents have faced in which fortunately for him are now somewhat in the lull, there’s no immediate crisis there. He must face up to a problem which will be new and particularly frustrating to him. The man who for so long led the Senate, led it as Majority leader when there was a Republican General Eisenhower in the White House. He will find now as President Truman and President Kennedy found before him that a Senator turned President is no longer a member of the club. He may have the sympathy and the friendship of the men on Capitol Hill, but no longer will they always do what he says when he asks. He must face the frustrations of closing out this particularly difficult, long term, slow moving session of the United States Congress, and closing it out with an election year facing him. The remaining business of the Congress is now the business of President Johnson.
Then he has the problem of forming a new government. Theoretically, at least, the government of President Kennedy would now offer its resignation. The members of the Cabinet were members who were loyal to and owe their allegiance to President Kennedy, rather than to the United States as a whole. The members of the Diplomatic Staff, our ambassadors overseas, now will probably offer their resignations, at least as a matter of protocol. The members of the White House Staff, the Aides who helped President Kennedy doing his work carrying on the business of the government, now also will offer their resignations. And Lyndon Johnson must look them all over. He must not only, in other words, pick up the threads of the government, but he must check out each thread and test it and see if it fits his hand. Each thread must be checked to see whether this is the kind of man in the Cabinet, in the White House Staff, anywhere in the government, whether this is the kind of man Lyndon Johnson can work with and wants to work with. He must check all the persons he’ll have to work with on the Congress. He must take a new look, in other words, at his political friends, at his political opponents,
and also as other Presidents have learned in the past, to their sorrow, he must even take a new look at his friends,
because Lyndon Baines Johnson is now that totally new entity,
the President of the United States.
This is George Herman at the White House.
For a look at the beginning of President Kennedy’s day in Texas. A day that began without even a hint of disaster,
here from Dallas is CBS News Correspondent Dan Rather:
….. Kennedy’s final four hours began this morning at Ft. Worth’s Carswell Air Force Base. He and Mrs. Kennedy had just attended a breakfast of the Ft. Worth Chamber of Commerce. At the airport in Ft. Worth before taking off for Dallas the Kennedys as they have been prone to do all along on this Texas trip went to the fence railing to shake hands with well wishers and allow some pictures to be taken.
The President and Mrs. Kennedy both had looked particularly refreshed and rested yesterday during their trip to San Antonio and Houston and again this morning as they started to leave Ft. Worth. Democratic Congressman accompanying the President on his trip were right behind him and Mrs. Kennedy. And the two boarded Air Force One at Carswell Air Force Base for the 30-mile air trip from Ft. Worth to Dallas.
It had been a rather grey morning a little bit earlier in the day as a cold front moved across Texas and there had been some rain. Laden skies and that little bit of rain were giving way to brilliant sunshine just about o an hour before the President’s scheduled arrival time at Dallas’s Love Field.
This was the crowd at Love Field, a particularly large greeting crowd. It was described that way by Dallas Police and Mayor Earl Cabell. It’s ironic that the rains stopped before the Presidents arrival in Dallas. Had it continued raining a bullet proof bubble top which fits over the sleek Presidential Convertible would have undoubtedly been used today and possibly would have prevented the assassination. Probably not since the person sitting next to him shot him. But as the sunshine broke through the President and Mrs. Kennedy arrived in Dallas to be greeted by a line of local dignitaries. A very enthusiastic crowd was on hand. Local reporters who have gathered many of these covered many of these gatherings called it one of the largest airport greetings in Dallas history.
Mrs. Kennedy was given a bouquet of roses. (I don’t recall any look of surprise at being handed red roses on her face. She seemed to like them.) Mrs. Kennedy seemed to enjoy a shaking hands with the local populace a bit more today than she did yesterday in San Antonio and Houston when there were times yesterday when Mrs. Kennedy appeared to be a little ill at ease. This morning she was all smiles and very warm in her greetings as was the President.
A person in front of Oriental woman or maybe Vietnamese?? (woman with black hair smiling) has her hands on the flat black object which is in President Kennedy’s hand. 3:04/10:50 and she seems to be trying to take the object or gave it, which the President hands that black object to a younger man in sunglasses at 3:06/10:50. Then the woman seems to disappear. Then Jackie Kennedy makes a signal with her hand to her collar as the exchange takes place at 3:07/10:50 as if signaling someone somehow as a few men in background behind Jackie Kennedy seems to be grinning from ear to ear so they are obviously aware of the exchange of the object that is occurring!

What was the trade?
Another oddity about the Presient Kennedy’s assassination is the speech he is most famous for about the press and secret societies
doesn’t seem to have been live.
What I mean is, just about everything this man did was televised, except for this speech.
I have searched for it to see him make the speech, but cannot find it anywhere. He supposedly gave it to the press at a press dinner his first year as President. As popular as he was at least at first you would think we would have seen it. I suspect it was taped and was the speech he planned to give in Dallas at the Trade Mart and having foresight he taped it to be heard if he was killed
knowing he was being surveiled by the Secret Service, the Press, the city fathers ie Evangelicals, the Vatican, etc.
That could be why Mrs. Connally said, “You can’t say that Dallas doesn’t love you,” about the moment he was shot coincidentally.
Could this be what he exchanged above?
If you punctuate that sentence it could be she meant,
“You can’t say that, Dallas doesn’t love you.”
But I could be reading into it too much. It is just a bit weird that she says that she said that comment the moment a shot was fired. And then later says about her strange writings (memories) that she found one day that she doesn’t remember writing, takes them to the THC (Texas Historical something or other at the University of Texas in Austin) that if she kept them as is and didn’t add punctuation or change it etc then it was considered history but if she added something to it such as a jot or tittle it would be considered a story. As if she didn’t know that, since she had worked for that association, which she failed to mention in her many interviews. I wrote quite a bit about her in few of my posts which you can find on the side bar of this page.
Of course the President used to such occasions. The President spent what seemed to be in a rather long time at the Dallas Airport making sure that he shook hands with everyone who was on hand there.
As far as the dignitaries were concerned always taking time to introduce his wife.
Because of the rather long time spent at the airport the President was a bit late getting started on his motorcade through downtown Dallas. They took time out at the airport to greet an elderly lady who said she had lived 69 years without shaking hands with the President. She got her chance today.
Of course, he is only 40 something years old. Is that a mock of some kind? Most people don’t shake hands with the President and why would she wait for 69 years to do so? I don’t know if what Dan Rather says is true but I think the number 69 is a mock of some kind. In the bible there is woman who waits to meet the Messiah and does so in the temple at the time when he is a baby but I don’t know which gospel that is in, but I do recall that. I linked the number 69 to a list of things that occurred in the year 69. But 69 has also come to mean other things as well in our lifetime that aren’t proper to say although I might attempt to later on. I find it interesting that this story of this woman waiting 69 years to shake hands with the President right before the President is assassinated a bit disconcerting and odd not to mention right after some kind of exchange and the hand signals by his wife!!!
“Earlier this year, the ailing preacher publicly endorsed a proposed constitutional amendment
to ban gay unions in North Carolina,
raising eyebrows among
many who’d watched Graham studiously
avoid thorny social issues for years.”.…..
“I’ve known their family for many years and have watched them grow Chick-fil-A
into one of the best businesses in America
while never compromising their values,” Graham said”……..
“His open letter also contains a fund-raising appeal
and a notice that Graham’s son Franklin,
himself a major evangelical figure,
is launching a new effort to
“bring the Gospel into neighborhoods and homes in every corner of America next year.”……
I think Sodomy has many meanings besides the obvious
I would take this news tip above as a warning.
Back to more important issues:
Maybe the lady handed JFK something important?
By the way have you noticed that Dan Rather likes to say rather rather often? Kind of rhetorical and I believe purposefully to mock. Why? I think he illustrated through an earlier conversation with Eddie Barker on this CBS affiliate in Dallas conversation about Jackie Kennedy and her attire as she left the hospital and her actions. He knew she had assassinated the President but hints at it to the audience. Why?I don’t know of course but I think he is either trying to tell us without actually coming out and saying so or he was blackmailing Jackie Kennedy or just observing and playing a game of some strange kind! Maybe all of the above!
Here is a video of Dan Rather who says he was one of the first to see the Zapruder film
and looks as if he did earn his career
04:00/10:50 Jackie sticking out her tongue
Jackie licks her lips a habit she seems to have or a social faux pas which seems to be emulated by many at CBS in these tapes and I think on purpose! She did it earlier right after she stepped off the plane in Dallas at Love Field. Possibly it is a symptom of some kind, not sure exactly. I wrote a few articles that demonstrate this oddity and the possibility of another reason for this habit:
The Secret Service all during this Texas trip had been allowing photographers and newsmen, local press, as distinguished from the White House news contingent, to work very closely around the President and Mrs. Kennedy.
The Presidential couple went again to the fence railing in Dallas to greet the well wishers departing from the course marked out for them by Secret Service people, but, of course, President Kennedy had made something of a reputation as a man who liked to break a way and shake hands with well wishers and the crowds who came to see him.
These are some of the last closeup pictures taken of President Kennedy. He was literally mobbed as he and Mrs. Kennedy went to that fence railing at Love Field. The crowd at the Dallas Airport was to a large measure a young crowd. The teenage group which played such a prominant role in President Kennedy’s 1960 campaign.
Mrs. Kennedy carried with her the entire time at the airport the roses that had been given to her.
Then the Presidential couple entered the open Lincoln Convertible in which they rode with Governor and Mrs. John Connally. Of course, Governor Connally also was shot in the convertible. In the convertible two Secret Service Agents driving it. Immediately behind them Governor and Mrs. John Connally of Texas and then in the rear seat the President and Mrs. Kennedy.
The plan in Dallas was to go from the airport with a rather slow motorcade so that everyone would have a chance to look, applaud, and take pictures of the President and Mrs. Kennedy. To go along Lemmon Street which was one of Dallas’s main streets, then cut over to Main Street and go down to Main Street after circling through the down town area out to the Trade Mart where the President was due to make a speech.
This is the convertible which the President was riding when he was shot.
Now this is one of the overhead walkways and railroad trestles under which the Presidential car had to go. At first it was thought that the assassin’s bullet might have been fired from one of those walkways or railroad trestles, but the current most popular theory is that the assassins bullet was fired from the upper story of a building. Interesting statement. This was the scene in down town Dallas as the Presidential motorcade went rather slowly by. As you can see the crowd is 10, 12 and 14 lines deep. It was nefariously estimated that between 200 and 300 thousand persons had turned out to greet President Kennedy.
Now why does Dan Rather say nefariously? At least that is what it sounds as if he is saying.
Nefarious means iniquity or abominable.
Is Dan Rather hinting at the meaning of this eventual Coup caused by
lust for power or is he jealous of the huge turnout Kennedy received
or is he artfully referring to
The reason I am suspicious is because of the
“The Temple of Dendur (Dendoor in nineteenth century sources) is a temple that was built by the Roman governor of Egypt, c, around 15 BC and dedicated to Isis, Osiris, as well as two deified sons of a local Nubian chieftain, Pediese (“he whom Isis has given”) and Pihor (“he who belongs to Horus“). The temple was commissioned by Emperor Augustus of Rome and has been exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York since 1978.”
“The Temple of Dendur in its original location. Drawing by Henry Salt.
The temple was removed from its original site (modern name: Dendur, ancient name: Tuzis, about 80 kilometers south of the town of Aswan) in 1963 in order to save it from being submerged by the construction of the Aswan High Dam. In recognition of the American assistance in saving various other monuments threatened by the dam’s construction, Egypt presented the temple and its gate as a gift to the United States of America, represented by – among others – Jacqueline Kennedy, in 1965.”
“On April 27, 1967, the temple was awarded to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where it was installed in the Sackler Wing in 1978. Inside the Sackler Wing, designed by the architects Kevin Roche, John Dinkeloo, and associates, a reflecting pool in front of the temple and a sloping wall behind it, represent the Nile and the cliffs of the original location. The glass on the ceiling and north wall of the Sackler is stippled in order to diffuse the light and mimic the lighting in Nubia.”
“From her apartment windows in New York City she had a splendid view of a glass enclosed wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art which displays the Temple of Dendur. This was a gift from Egypt to the U.S. in gratitude for the generosity of the Kennedy administration, who had been instrumental in saving several temples and objects of Egyptian antiquity that would otherwise have been flooded after the construction of the Aswan Dam.“
Here is a Time Magazine article link about the Temple of Dendur called
by Sophy Burnham
“And so it was that the U.A.R. found itself donating an ancient Egyptian temple to the most Jewish city in the world perhaps outside of Tel Aviv. The State Department with inimitable timing cabled Cairo of the Committee’s decision just as the Arab-Israeli war broke out. But the U.A.R kept it’s bargain. On May 25th it confirmed the gift.”
and the consequences of it’s presence in America.
Please read :
Down the Main Street Canyon of Dallas. The President riding in an open top convertible.
He and Mrs. Kennedy frequently looking up to wave to persons who took positions in the high buildings.
As you can see the welcome was enthusiastic and warm.
It was from this kind of window that the assassins bullet is believed to have been fired.
Although these particular pictures are further down town than the scene where the actual shooting took place.
Then the shots rang out, the Presidential motorcade speeded up.
The President was rushed immediately to Parkland Hospital.
This is the rear entrance to the hospital through which the Presidents car was brought.
There are the roses Mrs. Kennedy had been carrying.
Although, these roses are yellow and she was carrying red roses so who knows why Dan Rather says that when he knows that she was carrying red roses, not yellow and even comments on the red roses at the airport earlier. Dan Rather knows more than he is letting on and why he would say the last bit about the roses is deceptive.
They were on the floor. It had gotten there in the car as Mrs.Kennedy put the head of her mortally wounded husband on her lap.
This is the interior of the convertible.
Which of course it’s not since Lady Bird was given yellow roses so it must have been the car which carried LBJ and his wife!
What really gets me is that Dan Rather knows that and yet is playing some kind of stupid game.
Perhaps trying to make someone notice, who knows.
Dallas Law Enforcement Officers, and Secret Service men, along with Congressman Jim Wright, Democratic Senator Ralph Yarborough, were all on hand at the rear of the hospital. The Law Enforcement people and the Secret Service men kept photographers, newsmen, and the curious, as far away from the rear of the hospital as they possibly could.
Congressman Wright there in a moment of grief.
A large crowd gathered at Parkland Hospital as word spread that the President had been shot. There was considerable disbelief at first that he had actually been shot. Some thought he simply had taken ill. This is the new and modern Parkland Hospital with some of the best facilities in this part of the country to which the President was taken after he was shot. This is the ambulance that carried the President in moving away. A tight security guard was placed around the automobile. There are some of the aides and one or two doctors I believe rushing into the hospital.
Senator Ralph Yarborough who was one of the last to see President Kennedy arrive gave reporters some early details.
These were long moments at Parkland Hospital as everyone waited for word on- how is the President. Hospital sources gave this report of the arrival at the Emergency Entrance to the hospital and I quote from the hospital. The President was lying motionless in the car. Mrs. Kennedy was leaning over him, holding him. Governor Connally was leaning back in the seat holding his stomach. Both men were covered with blood.
Inside the Emergency room witnesses said the First Lady splattered with blood entered without a word. Mrs. Kennedy reportedly held up very well inside.
She was heard only to say : “Jack Jack No No.”
Even regular hospital attendants were barred admittance into the Emergency Room as a bevy of doctors worked frantically over President Kennedy. At the same time this scene was going on at Parkland Hospital all around town Police, Sheriff’s Deputies, and Secret Service men were following every possible lead, every possible clue in an effort to come up with some kind of lead to the assassin.
A film of mostly Parkland Hospital and The School Book Depository Building in Dallas
with Dan Rather
Governor Yarborough after checking inside in the Emergency Room came out and told reporters that he simply didn’t know whether the President was still alive or not. The Washington Press Corps and newsmen in general were, of course, pressing for some kind of word, some kind of detail. Things began to get crowded despite police efforts there at the rear of the hospital, the Emergency room.
At the moment these pictures were taken it was known that the President was in serious, perhaps critical condition. It was not known that he was dead. All around the hospital the faces of the crowd that gathered told the story.
This is part of the motor entourage which I believe brought two Roman Catholic Church priests to the hospital.
The crowd now has gotten the word. Word has been received that President Kennedy is dead.
There were some others wounded at the scene of the shooting. They were brought in much later.
Who is he talking about and how does Dan Rather know this. He is speaking in the past tense.
Very shortly after it was announced that the President had died a local ambulance pulled up to the hospital and about the time it did arrive to carry the body of the President away, the President Kennedy away, Presidential Press Assistant Malcolm Kilduff held a press briefing and made the announcement that the President was officially dead. He also explained the seating arrangement in the automobile in which the President had taken part in the motorcade along with Governor and Mrs. John Connally. This was the seating arrangement the Secret Service the two Secret Service men in front the Connallys in the middle the President and Mrs. Kennedy in the rear. President Kennedy was sitting on the right hand side as you looked on to that car from the top side. The shot apparently was fired from about one block away from what is believed to have been a 30-caliber weapon.
The crowd outside the hospital got larger about the time the Presidential party and the body of President Kennedy left Dallas’s Parkland Hospital. Police continue to stand guard over the convertible which had brought the blood splattered Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Connnally to the hospital. The latest word on Governor Connally is that he is in serious, but not critical condition.
Here it is being explained to some members of the crowd, they have to get further back. Here are some grief stricken members of the Presidential party. Mrs. Kennedy rode out in an ambulance the curtains drawn. The body was taken immediately to Dallases Love Field where it was put aboard the Presidential plane Presidential One.
Here is the Roman Catholic Father who administered the last rites, Oscar Huber. Father Oscar Huber of Holy Trinity Church in Dallas and one of the other Fathers at Holy Trinity Church. They were the two Catholic Priests who administered the last rites.
The Holy Catholic Trinity Church is located at 3811 Oak Lawn Ave.
Was this man also in one of the cars in the parade?
There were stares of disbelief as the body of the President rode away. All afternoon many Dallasites kept saying,
“it just can’t be true.”
The other man on the right looks like Eddie Barker! Kind of a shady looking feller with a hat on.

Talk about propaganda Geeeeeeeeez
President’s personal secretary and Mrs. Kennedy’s secretary leaving the hospital at about the time the body left.
The ambulance that carried the body of President Kennedy out to the airport.
The motorcade, of course, was very small: the ambulance, three cars, and some police motorcycle escorts. Was a bronze coffin in which the body of the President was placed inside that ambulance.
Police, in the meantime, had ringed the building from which the shots were to believe to have been fired. This is the building about a block from Houston and Main in Dallas. Police had heard reports that a man with a gun had been seen at on the fourth or fifth floor of that building so they immediately circled the building, heavily armed Police and Sheriff’s Deputies. Had an inch by inch, foot by foot search was made of the building and also of the surrounding neighborhood.
A number of suspects were picked up in the early minutes after the shooting. Some of those picked up were simply people officers thought might have some information on the shooting, not people who the police thought actually did the shooting.
For about a half an hour law enforcement officers thought they might have the assassin trapped in the building. One employee of the building was later picked up as a suspect and is still in custody. At the time these pictures were filmed the police thought they might have the assassin still inside that building.
As mentioned earlier not only the building, but a three or four block area was sealed off. From one of those open windows perhaps came the shot that killed President Kennedy.
Man pointing i.e. in charge. (I think)
The man facing the camera is the spittin’ image of Dr. William H. Dickenson Jr. long time server of God pastor of Highland Park Methodist Church who gave his word and the “Benediction” at the Trade Mart, and lays the blame for the death of President Kennedy on the audience attending! Yet he is with the sheriff and at the School Book Depository seemingly in control of the investigation. I guess he wears two hats. That sheriff who is walking with him was the man in the garage basement when Lee Harvey Oswald was assassinated by Jack Ruby, supposedly.
Below is what he said at the Trade Mart!
“There are no words to express what we’re feeling.
We are all conscience of the fact that we face an issue and some responsibilities as citizens today
which we cannot face without the strength and the wisdom and the patience of our God.
Will you bow your heads?:
Draw near us o God
and sustain us with thy presence
and grant unto us wisdom, strength, courage to live
in keeping with thy law and to live as free men.
This Event is a religious conspiracy!
At least six and possibly as many as one dozen arrests were made in the confusion and frantic searching that followed the shooting.
Secret Agents, Police, Undercover Police, Secret Service or just some men holding this man by the arms as if arresting him. Looks like serious business, but a few moments later that same man seems to be very at ease and smiling and their grasp seems to have loosened.
Gee, this looks a bit contrived!
This warehouse building is located a block from the Houston and Main intersection where the President was shot.
This is the motorcade route area. This is the kind of neighborhood in which the shooting occurred. Police and detectives here are chasing some other people that they wanted for questioning in connection with the shooting.
Then downtown at a theater Police arrested a man after a Dallas Policeman was shot.
The man was brought immediately to Police Headquarters as were all of those arrested. That man said to have been an employee of the building from which the shot had believed to have come. Let me emphasize that no charges have been filed against anyone in connection with the case.
Oswald on elevator with other men. He is looking back at his smiling friend behind him!
Holding Back the…..
It’s Hard To Do Sometimes!
This is Judge Sarah T. Hughes, a woman Federal District Judge. She is the woman who gave the oath of office to now President Lyndon Johnson after the shooting of President Kennedy.
I guess she was summoned although she is wearing a big corsage on her shoulder.
Was she a guest at the Trade Mart luncheon?????
She is wearing a polka dot dress.On the right she looks horrified as if hearing the news for the first time!
“She is the only woman in U.S. history to have sworn in a United States President, a task usually executed by the Chief Justice of the United States….”
In 1935, she accepted an appointment as a state judge from Governor James Allred for the Fourteenth District Court in Dallas, becoming the state’s first woman district judge. In 1936 she was elected to the same post. She was re-elected six more times and remained in that post until 1960.
In 1961, President John F. Kennedy appointed her to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas. She was the first woman to serve as a federal district judge in Texas…..”
|“||LBJ called Irving Goldberg from the plane and asked, ‘Who can swear me in?’ Goldberg called me, and I said, ‘Well, we know a federal judge can.’ Then I got a call from the President’s plane, with the command ‘Find Sarah Hughes.’ Coincidentally, Judge Hughes, Jan [Sanders’ wife] and I [Sanders] were supposed to go to Austin that night for a dinner for President Kennedy. I reached her at home and said, ‘They need you to swear in the Vice President at Love Field. Please get out there.’ She said, ‘Is there an oath?’ I said, ‘Yes, but we haven’t found it yet.’ She said, ‘Don’t worry about it; I’ll make one up.’ She was very resourceful, you know. By the time she got to the airplane, someone had already called it into the plane. We quickly realized that it is in the Constitution.|
Judge Sarah T. Hughes here is going directly to the plane at Love Field where the Presidential Oath was administered to Lyndon Johnson.
“…Hughes was a member of the three-judge panel that first heard the case of Roe v. Wade; the panel’s decision was subsequently affirmed by the Supreme Court of the United States. She retired from the active federal bench in 1975, though she continued to work as a judge with senior status until 1982.
A close friend of Lyndon Johnson and his family, Hughes participated in his inauguration in 1965,
took part in the book-signing of Lady Bird Johnson‘s White House memoirs,
and participated in the dedication of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum.
(Hughes talking about the oath of office given to LBJ.)
…..”Well, I knew that Barefoot had the oath by then, but I said “Well, I know what the
oath is.” So in place of calling him I went on up the ramp. And somebody, I don’t know
who it was, met me and I then said “I don’t need the oath of office; I know what to say.”
But in just a moment somebody handed me a copy of the oath. I understand that someone
had telephoned to the Attorney General and had gotten a copy of the oath. I wasn’t told
that but anyway I was handed it.
F: Barefoot didn’t dictate it to someone.
H: No, he didn’t dictate it.
And then somebody handed me a book and said
“This is a Catholic Bible…..”
The Attorney General of the USA was Robert Kennedy, President Kennedy’s brother.
The Attorney General of Texas was Will Reid Wilson.
so says LBJ:
….”Now I didn’t know this until later. As a matter of fact, President Johnson told me
this story. Attorney General Kennedy took some bills up to Mr. Rayburn having to do
with the Department of Justice that he wanted passed, and Mr. Rayburn said, “I’ll see that
these bills get passed if you will recommend the appointment of Sarah Hughes……”
Wade had already been appointed.
Interesting coincidence when Robert Kennedy was assassinated a woman was seen and heard wearing a polka dot dress and a funny nose by several people. However I wouldn’t say that Sarah T. Hughes has a funny nose, but she is wearing a polka dot dress.
This is the plane carrying the body of President Kennedy from Dallas to Washington.
Dan Rather licking 10:10/10:12
What is the deal with the licking? It is apparent that the CBS reporters are trying to communicate something!
Maybe they can’t control their tongue cues?
Dan Rather: The final speech of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was made this morning to a breakfast meeting of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. This was that speech:
Edit of some kind :….The United States
I know uh now why everyone in Texas Fort Worth is so thin having uh gotten up and down about uh 9 times. That’s what you do every morning. Mr. Baulk, Mr. Vice President, Governor Connally, Senator Yarborough, Jim Wright, Members of the Congressional Delegation, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Attorney General, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Two years ago I said that uh introduced myself in Paris by saying that
I was the man who had accompanied uh Mrs. Kennedy to Paris.
I’m getting that somewhat that same sensation uh as I travel around uh Texas.
Nobody wonders what Lyndon and I wear.
Everyone is laughing hysterically..
I’m glad to be here in uh Jim Wright’s city. About uh 35 uh …….
About uh 35 years ago a Congressman from California, just been elected, received a letter from an irate constituent which said uh during the campaign you promised to have the Sierra Madre mountains reforested. You’ve been in office for one month and you haven’t done so. Well, no one in Fort Worth has been uh that unreasonable, but in some ways he has had the Sierra Madre mountains reforested and uh here in Fort Worth he’s contributed to it’s growth. He speaks for Fort Worth and he speaks for the country. And I don’t know any city that’s better represented in the Congress of the United States than Fort Worth. And if there are any Democrats here this morning I’m sure you won’t hold that against him.
Three years ago last September I came here and uh Vice President and spoke at uh Burke Burnette Park. I called that speech for National Security Policy and a National Security System which was second to none. A position which said not first but, if, when, and how, but first. That city responded to that call as it has through its history and we have been putting that pledge into practice ever since.
And I want to say a word about that pledge here in Ft. Worth, which understands National Defense and it’s importance to the security of the United States.
During the days of the Indian War this city was a fort. During the days of WWI, even before the United States got into the war, Royal Canadian Air Force Pilots were training here.
During the days of WWII the Great Liberator Bombers on which my brother flew with his co-pilot from this city were produced here.
First nonstop flight around the world took off and returned here in a plane built in factories here.
The first truly Intercontinental Bomber, the B-36, was produced here.
The B-58 which is the finest weapon system in the world today, which it demonstrated most recently in flying from Tokyo to London with an average speed of nearly a thousand miles per hour is a Ft. Worth product….?
The Iroquois Helicopter from Ft. Worth is a mainstay in our fight against the guerillas in South Viet Nam.
The transportation of crews between our missile sites is done in planes produced here in Fort Worth.
So where ever the confrentation
(sounds like he says confrentation, concentration, con-swen-tration)
Either he is slurring his pronunciation of the word
because of some drug
or there is another meaning that
he is imputing as in POSSESSED!
may occur and in the last 3 years it’s occurred at least 3 occasions:
in Laos, Berlin and in Cuba and it will again. Where ever it occurs the products of Ft. Worth and the men of Ft. Worth provide us with a sense of security.
And in the not too distant future….. And in the not too distant future a new Ft. Worth product…. And I’m glad that there’s a table separating Mr. Hicks and myself….. a new Ft. Worth product:
the TFX, Tactical Fighter Experimental.
Nobody knows what those words mean, but thats what they mean.
Tactical Fighter Experimental will serve the forces of freedom and will be the number one airplane in the world today.
There’s been a good deal of discussion of the long and hard fought competition to win the TFX contract, but very little discussion about what this plane will do. It will be the first operational aircraft ever produced that can literally spread its wings through the air. It will thus give us a single plane capable of carrying out missions of speed, as well as distance; able to fly very far in one form or very fast in another. It can take off from rugged short airstrips, enormously increasing the Air Forces ability to participate in limited wars.
The same basic plane will serve the Navy’s Carriers saving the taxpayers at least one billion dollars in cost if they build separate planes for the Navy and the Air Force. The government of Australia by purchasing 125 million dollars of TFX planes before they are even off the drawing board has already testified to the merit of this plane and at the same time it’s confident in the ability of Ft. Worth to meet it’s schedule.
In all these ways the success of our National Defense depends upon this city in the Western United States 10,000 miles from Viet Nam, 5 or 6,000 miles from Berlin, thousands of miles from trouble spots in Latin America and Africa or the Middle East. And yet Ft. Worth and what it does and what it produces participates in all these great historic events. Texas as a whole and Ft. Worth bear a particular responsibility for this National Defense Effort. For military procurement in this state totals nearly one and a quarter billion dollars; fifth highest among all the states of the union.
There are more military personnel on active duty in this state than any in the nation, save one, and it’s not Massachusetts. Any in the nation save one where they…. where they combine military civilians defense payroll of well over a billion dollars.
I don’t recite these for any partisan purpose, they’re the result of American determination to be second to none (NUN or No man).
Please also read:
•Increased the defense budget of the United States by over 20 percent.
•Increased the program of acquisition for Polaris Submarines from 24 to 41.
•Increased our Minuteman Missile Purchase Program by more than 75 percent.
•Doubled the number of Strategic Bombers and Missiles On Alert.
•Doubled the number of Nuclear Weapons available in the Strategic Alert Forces.
•Increased the Tactical Nuclear Forces deployed in Western Europe by over 60 percent.
•Added 5 Combat Ready Divisions to the Armies of the United States and 5 Tactical Fighter Wings to the Air Force of the United States.
•Increased our Strategic Air Lift Capability by 75 percent and •increased our Special Counter Insurgency Forces which are engaged now in South Viet Nam by 600 percent.
I hope those who want a strong America and place it on some signs will also place those figures next to it.
This is not an easy effort. This requires sacrifice by the people of the United States. But this is a very dangerous and uncertain world.
As I said earlier on 3 occasions in the last 3 years the United States has had a direct confrontation.
No one can say,
or when it will come again.
No one expects,
uh that uh our life will be easy, certainly not in this decade, and perhaps not in this century. But we should realize what a burden and responsibility the people of the United States have borne for so many years. Here a country which lived in isolation, divided and protected by the Atlantic and Pacific, uninterested in the struggles of the world around it; here in the short space of 18 years (since 1945) after the second world war we put ourselves by our own will and by necessity into a defense of alliances with countries all around the globe.
On 3 occasions in the last 3 years (1960-1963), he says that we had direct confrontations, but I don’t remember the confrontation with Berlin.
Obviously, another confrontation was about to occur.
I think that was a hint from JFK,
•Without the United States SouthViet Nam would collapse over night.
•Without the United States the SEATO Alliance would collapse overnight.
•Without the United States the SENTO Alliance would collapse overnight.
•Without the United States there would be no NATO and gradually Europe would drift into neutralism and indifference.
•Without the effort of the United States and the Alliance For Progress the Communist advance onto the mainland of South America would long ago have taken place.
So this country which desires only to be free, which desires to be secure, which desires to live at peace, for 18 years under 3 different administrations has borne more than its share of the burden,
Has stood watch for more than its number of years.
I don’t think that uh we are fatigued, or tired. We would like to live uh as we once lived, but history will not permit it. The Communist balance of power is still uh strong. The balance of power is still on the side of freedom. We are still the keystone in the arch of freedom and I think we will continue to do as we have done in our past: our duty, and uh the people of Texas will be in the lead.
So I’m glad to come.
I’m glad to come to this uh state which has played uh such a significant role in so many efforts in this century. And to say that here in Ft. Worth you people will be playing a major role in the maintenance of the security of the United States for the next 10 years. I’m confident as I uh look to the future that our chances for security, our chances for peace, are better than they’ve been in the past and the reason is because we’re stronger. And with that strength is a determination to not only maintain the peace, but also the vital interests of the United States.
To that great cause Texas, and the United States, are committed.
end of JFK’s Speech
JACKIE LIKED THAT SPEECH!
Does JFK look okay in the picture on the left?
or does he look like something is wrong ….
I think he looks upset.
She or whatever it is
is controlling him!
Do you see the pretty white flowers?
EERILY SIMILAR PHOTO OF JFK. I find it very odd!
I THINK THIS SHOT WAS TAKEN IN MIAMI A WEEK OR SO BEFORE THE PICTURE ABOVE IT.
HE IS WEARING A BOW TIE AND A REGULAR TIE IN THE PICTURE ABOVE AND BELOW THIS PICTURE IN FT. WORTH.
President Kennedy appears to be wiping his eyes from crying
(which is not a normal reaction….something else is going on)
and away from Jackie Kennedy
and then laughs at the presentations given to him.
Mr. President, your visit with us in Ft. Worth today, the things you have said have refreshed and renewed our appreciation of your great leadership and courage.
You have brought rain to moisten our pastures and our fields.
You have brought sunshine in our hearts.
We know, we know that you don’t wear a hat.
HERE ARE 2 PICTURES OF JFK WEARING A HAT.
IT’S POSSIBLE, IT’S POSSIBLE THAT DR. GRANVILLE WALKER AND/OR HIS WIFE DIFFER
THAN THE AVERAGE MAN BY THE MEANING OF
‘WEARING A HAT’. )
AFTER ALL THEIR MOTTO IS:
TOO BAD YOU NEED TO USE DRUGS ON UNSUSPECTING HUMANITY TO ACHIEVE THOSE CHANGES! WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE EFFECTS OF THE DRUGS DISSIPATE? DO YOU THEN KILL TO COVER UP THE DECEPTION?
OBVIOUSLY, THERE IS A BETTER WAY THAN THAT!)
We couldn’t let you leave Ft. Worth without providing you with some protection
against the rain.
-I’ll put it on in the uh White House
if you’ll come up there,
you’ll have a chance to see it,
Another hint from JFK?
Was there an event scheduled for Monday that the public isn’t aware of?
That was the day of his funeral!
Was he aware of that?
That uh that Texas hat is presented to you by our Washer Brothers,
one of the oldest men stores in Texas.
And to protect you against global enemies in the manner you are protecting this nation against our foreign enemies and to keep the rattlesnakes on Vice President Johnson’s ranch from striking you, we wanted to present these this pair of boots. We won’t ask you to put them on ….here. The boots are presented by Mr. John Justin, former Mayor of Ft. Worth, manufacturer of the most walked about boots in the world.
And Mrs. Kennedy, as you ride to the hounds or walk to the rattlesnakes,
(She did do that, didn’t she!)
we want you to have protection, too.
Boots, I think.
Gives her a box!
Before the Benediction
I’d like to present Mrs. Granville Walker, the wife of Dr. Granville Walker, who will
Announce the Benediction.
Mrs. Granville Walker.
No woman stands up so I guess I should assume he is Mrs. Granville Walker,
however there was a break in the film so could be she did her introduction in the break not shown.
After Dr. Walker
Gives the Benediction
we’ll ask that you please remain seated
until the President and Mrs. Kennedy have made their exit.
Dr. Granville Walker.
Dr. Walker takes the podium.
– Let us be in the spirit of prayer. The Lord bless all nations with a desire for peace. The Lord bless our own beloved nation with rectitude and prosperity and grant us to achieve justice for all within it. The Lord bless our President and all in places of responsibility with wisdom and with health equal to their tasks. And now the Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord lift up his countenance upon you and be gracious unto you. The Lord cause his face to shine upon you and give you peace both now and forever.
Uh, gee did this mantra help anyone
Though it sounds real pretty.
……….A little while later JFK goes to Dallas
and he is assassinated by Jackie Kennedy………..
with the help of some religious leaders, the press, the witnesses, and many more.
AT LEAST, SOW IT SEEMS
It does seem like this is occurring as if back then and also now.
Back to Walter Cronkite
Lee H. Oswald the 24 year old man whom Dallas Police say is a prime suspect in the assassination of President Kennedy was questioned for 6 hours at the Dallas Police Station this evening. He was arrested shortly after the assassination and has been under questioning ever since. But as he was lead from the interrogation room upstairs in the Dallas Police Station perhaps reporters say for booking, he said to reporters, “I don’t know anything about this. I haven’t done anything.” Apparently he is still denying any knowledge of the assassination.
Oswald’s arrest uh resulted from a theater cashier’s tip, Mrs. Julie Postal, telephoning Police from the Texas theater that a man inside looked like he was running from someone, and that was just 45 minutes after the shooting. The theater 3 miles away from shooting scene. She said he kept changing seats in the theater. The police by this time were frantically searching the city for the killer, of course, and two officers raced to the theater and in through a rear door. One of them opened fire. Oswald had a snub nosed 38 pistol on him and he shot, too. It’s not clear who fired first, but Officer J. D. Tippit was shot dead and police say that Oswald’s pistol killed him.
Oswald as we said was local Chairman of the pro Castro Fair Play For Cuba Committee. He went to Russia in 1959 saying he was relinquishing his United States Citizenship. He returned last year complaining that he was disillusioned. Whether or not he ever actually did get Soviet citizenship is not clear. But he did marry while in Russia and is said to have one or two children. His wife is in this country with him and was taken to the Police Station this afternoon, also.
Oswald worked in the building where the murder weapon- a German made Mouser Rifle was discovered. Oswald has been active in propaganda activities as
Bob Jones from Station WWL TV in New Orleans reports.
cuts to film showing Oswald passing out leaflets
Obviously, Oswald was on their radar screen early on.
-This is Lee H. Oswald in October 16th in New Orleans when he was handling out hand bills for the Fair Play For Cuba Committee in front of the International Trade Mart. New Orleans Police know Oswald well. On August 9th he was arrested for disturbing the peace by creating a scene on the cities Main Canal Street by also distributing these hand bills. He resided in an apartment here from May 9th until August 20th when he slipped out in the middle of the night without having paid his rent. The apartment manager said he was quiet and talked to no one. They found several of these pamphlets lying around the apartment after he had left. This is Bob Jones WWL-TV in New Orleans.
That was short!
By strange coincidence since 1840 beginning with Benjamin Harrison over our last 8 Presidents who assumed office on the even years two decades apart have died in office. And of the nations 35 Presidents, 4 have died of assassins bullets. President Lincoln in 1865, and Garfield in 1881, McKinnley in 1901, and John F. Kennedy today. In this century 4 Vice Presidents have moved up to the highest office in emergencies: Theodore Roosevelt succeeded President McKinnley. Calvin Coolidge in August 1923 succeeded Warren Harding who died of a stroke. In April 1945 Harry Truman took the Oath of Office following Franklin Roosevelt’s death at Warm Springs, Georgia. And today Lyndon Johnson took the oath aboard an Air Force jet liner at Dallas, Texas. For a report on the man who is our new President, here is Eric Severeid.
Eric Severeid reads his propaganda and it seems to be the exact monologue he read before .
-Walter on this day of misfortune (clears throat) perhaps some measure of comfort can be taken from one circumstance: This time the successor to an assassinated President is a man of first rank ability. This was not so when Abraham Lincoln died, although some historians disagree about Andrew Johnson. It was not so when Garfield died and was succeeded by Chester Arthur. It was so when McKinnley died and Theodore Roosevelt became the President, and it’s so again. Lyndon Baines Johnson is no throttle-bottom, no political accident. He is 55 years old. He’s in the prime of life for the responsibilities of the Presidency at a point where a man’s experience and his energies meet at a high mutual level. Johnson was born in Texas near the hamlet called Johnson City where the family flag flies over the LBJ ranch. He’s a lawyer by education, a politician by instinct and by great success. sticks out tongue 1:59/10:50.
It was not so….. It was not so…. It was so…… and it’s so again. SOWHAT?
I’m sorry but this is soweird.
He was a very young age of Franklin Roosevelt during the New Deal Days. He worked on the Youth Project. He first went to the House of Representatives in 1937. He was only 29 years old. And there in the House he became the personal protege of Sam Reaper a great Texan who ran the House as Speaker longer than any man in our history including Henry Clay. licks 2:21/10:50 Johnson went to the Senate in 1949 winning in Texas by a tiny majority of just 87 votes. And he became, without much doubt, the most effective Majority Leader in the whole story of the Senate. Sticks out tongue. 2:34/10:50. His energy there was prodigious. he lived in a whirl of activity. He put most Senators in his personal debt by one kind of service or another. His fame became great in Washington itself during the years of Republican rule under President Eisenhower. His power then as Senate Leader was greater by far than it has been since in the Vice Presidency. sticks out tongue 2:55/10:50. Johnson was called a liberal by instinct, and intellect, a conservative by geography. His political alliances in Texas were with the more conservative Texans who have managed that state for a good many years. But in most national matters he was regarded as progressive including on the matter of civil rights. Again, this was in the pattern and the image of his patron Sam Rayburn. He is a fairly wealthy man his family holdings, some in the name of his wife Lady Bird include television stations, as well as the ranch. sticks out tongue 3:26/10:50. In 1955, when Johnson was making a visit to the uh Virginia Farm of Mr. George McGhee another Texan our ambassador to Germany, Mr. Johnson felt ill. He thought it was acute indigestion. Senator Clinton Anderson of New Mexico was present and he said at once, “You’re having a heart attack.” Mr. Johnson was taken to a hospital where he slowly recovered. sticks out tongue 3:48/10:50.
In part one of this series Frank McGeehee is mentioned by Eddie Barker reporting at the Trade Mart who said that Frank McGeehee was the leader of the National Indignation Convention a group of extreme rightists here tried to interrupt the uh ambassador. I sort of think he is connected somehow to Ambassador McGhee. Here us that same snippet from that section:
Is Frank McGeeHee related to Ambassador McGhee?
“For Erhard, the issue was more than a theoretical scenario, as several dossiers and transcripts from US diplomats show. In confidential discussions with the US ambassador in Bonn, George McGhee, the German chancellor spoke of
a “necessary sacrifice” or a new gesture.”….
“……The Christian Democrat wanted to entice the communists on the other side of the Iron Curtain with enormous sums of money. His closest confidante, Chancellery Chief of Staff Ludger Westrick, even went so far as to name them at a dinner with Ambassador McGhee on Oct. 21, 1963: Loans of perhaps $2.5 billion a year for 10 or more years, or approximately 100 billion deutsche marks at the currency exchange rate at the time…”
“…..With the arrival of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s administration, Ambassador McGhee returned to the oil business but was recalled as a consultant to the National Security Council and as a member of the president’s commission on the military assistance program.
President John F. Kennedy appointed him counselor to the State Department and head of its policy planning council. During the Cuban missile crisis he was under secretary for political affairs, the No. 3 job in the department……”
Was the sacrifice President Kennedy?
Back to Eric Severeid hyping the Talents of Lyndon Johnson:
For some time after that his strength was diminished. He told his reporters once on Monday mornings I’m full of fire by Wednesday night I’m all tired out. But all this changed. His full strength came back and in recent years he has demonstrated his old energies in a daily whirl of activities including a great many trips around this country and abroad. sticks out tongue 4:09/10:50. He is now personally acquainted with virtually all of the world leaders of President Kennedy was acquainted with, including Mr. Kruschev. His grasp of domestic politics is very great at the general and intellectual level and at the practical working level of this total human machinery that makes our rather cumbers (def:to hinder, to slow, to weigh down) system work.
His fierce fight against Mr. Kennedy for the Democratic Nomination in 1960 seems only yesterday. But his great prestige in Washington, at that time, was not matched by his prestige in the country at large. So it was a tremendous struggle right down to the final hours of the convention. Mr. Kennedy chose Johnson to be his running mate partly because he had to have strength in the Southern states. Johnson was the one man who could conciliate the Southern Conservatives. And this he did. In fact, there were many later on who said that Mr. Kennedy owed his election to Mr. Johnson. In any case, Johnson became the President’s Lieutenant in full fidelity (adjusts his glasses) not only in his public actions, but in his private talk. sticks out tongue 5:15/10:50. But he began to fade from the national consciousness as Vice President, as most Vice Presidents under an energetic President are bound to do.
When the president, President Kennedy died today, both he and the Vice President were engaged behind the scenes in trying to settle the feud within the Texas Democratic Party between the Johnson Connally forces and the liberal forces led by Senator Ralph Yarborough. And now all that which does seem so petty in retrospect, all that doesn’t matter very much. Mr. Johnson is the President. Texas is his personal political base in its totality. Well, when the sorrow of today begins to fade and when the President has been laid to rest the machinery of the national government will take up again. And again Americans will think ahead not only as to what lines of policy and action the new President will follow, but also after a while to the election of next year. Mr. Johnson will be nominated at the Democratic Convention next August, if he wishes it and I think most observers tonight would predict that he will wish it. All estimations as to the outcome of the election itself a year from this November, of course, are right now without meaning. That election like the course of this great country itself lies with faith and with the continuing nature of the times (takes off his glasses) and of the world itself. Now, Walter.
Back to Walter Cronkite.
Dallas, Texas a name and a place that bore the romance of the great oil state and its almost legendary wealth in an instant, in the flash of an assassin’s bullet, has been saddled with an unwanted memory. The mayor of Dallas is Earl Cabell. He is with Eddie Barker in our KRLD-TV Studios in Dallas right now.
Eddie Barker folds his arms leans over his table and speaks.
Walter, I think that uh most Dallasites feel at this hour, as I do, still in a state of shock. But as the grim reality takes hold that in our town the President of our United States could be gunned down by a fiend, I shutter and feel sick in the pit of my stomach. And Dallas feels that way, too. For as you know, Dallas is not that kind of town. To Easterners who come here they often say wha this is sort of a little New York. It’s known as the town in the Southwest with the culture. It’s had a lot of problems with its extreme elements, but uh this is something today that certainly has this town shocked. Mayor Earl Cabell who was in that Presidential Parade today and was only a cars length away when the President was shot. Mayor?
–Well, uh we were just horrified when we heard that. Uh, we couldn’t believe that he had been shot. I heard, we were working and uh someone came in and told us that uh (again the light voice saying hey) the President had been shot and we didn’t, we just didn’t believe it. And it we didn’t think that anything like that could happen.
Is this your wife? –Yes it is
May I ask you what was your reaction? -I just couldn’t believe it. I had only seen him just moments before alive, and then….
You watched the parade? -Yes, I did. It was horrible. (witness?)
How do you think the city of Dallas feels about it? -I think they think its horrible.
–Everyone I’ve talked to has just, they just cant believe anything like this could happen here.
-Didn’t believe it at first. They came down here to the bank and telling us. And we just didn’t believe it, because we just walked down just a few minutes before it happened.
You were at work at the time? -Yes, I was at work at the time so I I couldn’t believe it.
What was the uh reaction among the people at the bank? -Well, none of us could believe it until we got phone calls from our friends, and relatives, and everything. Hearing it on the radio, and them telling us, and then we came to realize it that it had happened.
We just couldn’t believe it.
Thank you very much.
How what is your reaction to the tragic events that occurred here today? – I just can’t believe it. I still can’t. I just can’t believe it.
Where were you when you heard about it? – I was at work.
Had you seen the parade? -No, we hadn’t gone down.
How did you hear about it? -Uh one of – a department head from another department came in said that President Kennedy was dead, and none of us. We just couldn’t believe it.
-Well, when I heard the news I was so stunned and it’s so shocking and I’m still nervous. We lost a good man.
Walter Cronkite in the CBS Studio
In Havana, the Havana radio is reporting the assassination of the President without comment. The announcers appear to be reading a straight copy from the Press Service Wires. They rep they do report that the prime suspect Lee Oswald was Chairman of the Fair Play For Cuba Committee, but they’re making no comment on that fact.
In Washington, the death of the President seemed as if someone had pulled the keystone out of the firm arch of government. For reaction from the nation’s capitol here is Roger Mudd:
By the way, Roger Mudd sounds just like Neil Stauuser CBS Correspondent in Washington. Check out part 1 of this series to hear his voice and compare their voices with their faces and you might see that there is a mix up of some kind or deception.
IN THE PAST 97 years Washington has been shocked by the assassination of 3 Presidents,
but today in this era of instantaneous communication the news of ’s death struck so suddenly here it felled the city
as if she had been hit in the solar plexis.
They wanted to cause great pain because
the US did win WWll and Naziism/Fascism was exposed!
Since I do believe time is traveled,
I think this was a “first shot”
having to do with the relevance of the Synoptic Gospels
and specifically the preeminence of the Gospel of Matthew
and the deception therein.
The participants involved and noticed at the airport in Dallas are a very good clue to this theory,
the timing of the Vatican ll, and of course, Israel.
degrade men, women, boys and girls
by those that have the foreknowledge to do sow
and the capability to thwart and retard truth
kind of theology for “whatever reason.”
That is my opinion!
On the Senate floor a younger Republican from Kansas whispered blankly: “I feel sick at my stomach.”
The only word Albert Gore of Tennessee could utter was: “Horrible.”
Hubert Humphrey issued a public statement then, but then later told his office staff: “I can’t contain myself. I feel the loss of a part of my own life.”
Aside from President Johnson, probably no elected official inWashington was more deeply affected than the Speaker of the House John McCormack of Massachusetts.
Speaker McCormack the 72year old Democrat from South Boston tonight stands directly behind Lyndon Johnson in succession to the Presidency.
–The tragic deaths of President Kennedy is a great loss not only to our country, but to the entire world. President Kennedy was giving to our country and to the free world visionary, sterling, and courageous leadership so necessary during this trying period of the world’s history. The bullet of the assassin has taken from our midst one of the great Americans of all time.
The world, in addition to our country, the people of our country will mourn not only the passing of this great man, but the dastardly manner in which his death took place. I have lost a dear and personal friend. And I and Mrs. McCormack with the rest of the people of the nation mourn the passing of our great President and our outstanding leader. I know that all Americans join with me and Mrs. McCormack in extending to Mrs. Kennedy and the other loved ones of the family of our late President our deepest sympathy in their bereavement.
While he has left us, he takes his place in history. And I know that if he could speak to us from the great beyond that he would say to you and I all Americans whether we occupy official life or not: Carry on and see that your children and your children’s children live under the same form of government that we have today. So from the sacrifices, the leadership to dedicate its service of President Kennedy. Let us renew our confidence in the future of our country. Let us renew our love of our country. And let us go forth determined to follow the spirit of President Kennedy with faith and with confidence, meeting all challenges and all obstacles that might occur, and to lead us to the leadership his spirit of the spirit of the President Kennedy and the leadership of President Johnson to a world peace.
The first report of the shooting of the President reached the Capitol Hill this afternoon shortly before 2:0o o’clock. The House was not in session, but the Senate was considering routine business. Presiding was the President’s younger brother, Senator Edward Kennedy, one of half a dozen Freshman Democrats who take turns in the presiding officer’s chair. The Call for a Quorum had been issued and the role was being read when Richard Ridell, a Senate employee who serves as Press Liason, spotted the first bulletin in Dallas on the news ticker in the lobby behind the Senate Chamber:
This part is a repeat of the same interview he gave which is found in Part One or two of this transcription with his picture so it should be easy to find and you can check it out for yourself there or on the you tube. I don’t want to waste time retranscribing the same thing. So I will skip past this interview to the next part in this youtube:)
Senator Kennedy then left the Capital immediately, went directly to Andrews Field with his sister Mrs. Sargent Shriver, flew to Hyannis Port, Massachusetts to be with their parents.
On the Senate floor it was 1:55. Majority Leader Mansfield suspended the Quorum Call and recessed the Senate to await the call of the chair. Mansfield and Minority Leader Dirkson then called the White House and stayed in touch with the White House until there was official confirmation that the President had indeed been shot. Mansfield then recalled the Senate and Chaplain Frederick Brown Harris offered a prayer and the Senate adjourned until noon Monday, but not really.
What in the world?
Obviously, this is a synopsis because how would he know. This is an addendum to what was occurring then and obviously re-edited to spin and ridicule IMO
but to be fair he could be leaving a clue, as well, because he has no other choice.
The Senate just stood there bewildered, aghast, and dumbfounded.
Why did he say that I wonder? See this is what I mean about the twists and turns of the powerful elite who know what is going on but not offering the truth to anyone and mocking in an odd sort of way the reaction of normal human beings. I have used the But Not Really quite often in my writings because of the deception I have encountered and am trying to show through this blog and others, to anyone who will care to care. I am still dumbfounded as to the deception because it is soooo HUGE. This man is a reporter who mutates therefore not a normal man. He has the capability with his comrades to cloak and deceive normal average men and women to push their agenda with their coup, to quell the truth by deception for whatever reason, keeping mankind down, and women even more so. You know, I don’t mind if someone mutates as long as they let me know. It is unfair, evil, cruel, and demonic to do otherwise. Obviously, he knows that and doesn’t care. Just because you have the power to do so, doesn’t mean that you should.
Around those news tickers in the lobby stood some of the most powerful Senators in Washington listening as Richard Russell of Georgia read aloud to them each word of Dallas as it was laid down by the teletype. Finally, the bulletin that seemed blacker than all the others started moving. President Kennedy is dead.
Then one after the other, the Senators gulped, lowered there eyes, bumped into each other seemingly in a daze.
See what I mean? That is mockery!
The first expressions of grief came from Republican Leader Dirkson of Illinois:
“There are some things that are simply incredible and leave one absolutely speechless.
This is one of them.”
What interests me is the obvious monumental coverup of this assassination more than anything that has happened in my lifetime and the resulting coverups of the other crimes that are certainly related to this coverup. There are so many things about this assassination that are biblically related besides some of the names of the people involved.
I started researching this assassination when I was writing a post on my blog about the Covenant with Many and it led me to Jackie Kennedy’s marriage to Aristotle Onassis etc. Then to the Zapruder film which clearly shows Jackie Kennedy with a weapon in her right hand emitting smoke and vapors rising right after the fatal head shot of President Kennedy. Smoke doesn’t emit from bullets, but does emit from a gun.
I noticed a few physical differences between Jackie Kennedy early in their marriage and soon before the assassination. The reason I noticed these differences is because it was hard for me to believe that she would kill her husband from what I had seen in early pictures and read about her. She was altered somehow or replaced at some point with a double. Not sure which.
We all assume that time only runs forward. I do not assume that anymore. In the bible and specifically in the Gospel of John Jesus is in the Garden of Gethsamane being confronted by a group of men who asked if he was Jesus of Nazareth.
They fell backwards when he said I AM!
I believe the meaning is in time because they did not believe who he was.
There is a verse in the bible about The Son of Man not having anywhere to lay his head. The controversy over whether Jackie Kennedy held John Kennedy’s head in her lap seems to be a point of contention. A BIG ONE. And I believe the reason for this contention is because of the implications of this prophecy and its fulfillment
in JFK and his assassination.
First of all this is a painting of Jackie with President Kennedy on her lap.
Some people said that President Kennedy fell in Jackie Kennedy’s lap when he was fatally shot, yet the film shows otherwise. The Zapruder film. In fact, shows her with something in her hand that emits a vapor after he is shot in the head. Bullets don’t emit a vapor but a weapon does.With great speed and agility she leapt to the trunk of the limo to pick up what I think were two small objects that rolled like a tube of lipstick would roll (sideways) which made me think the objects were cylindrical that is why they stayed on the trunk of the limo. I think there were two of them that she retrieved from the trunk of the car before the Secret Service Agent reached her. I think they were caps or what is ejected from a weapon upon firing.
She said she went to pick up his brain yet she doesn’t remember doing so.
Everyone else is reacting in normal time yet Jackie or her double in the limo at the time is acute, aware, and quick moving comparatively…..like a machine or robot.
I think when JFK raised his arms right after they pass the Stemmon’s freeway sign is when something went through his body from the back and held him in place and for the purpose so as not to arouse immediate suspicion of the people in the limo such as John Connally to be assassinated by Jackie with relative ease. The sharp aul went through his back pierced his tie but did not go through it and then retracted through the same entry wound and that is why there is not a normal exit wound as would occur if it were a bullet. That is probably why they did a tracheotomy to make an exit wound or the appearance of an exit wound. If you read Kellerman’s testimony there was a discussion with doctors why and where a bullet went if there was no exit wound. Then a bullet miraculously appeared later on a stretcher to cover that mistake in this assassination.
I don’t know why witnesses said he laid in her lap unless the film is a fake to implicate her. Which of course is a real possibility.
I think the witnesses were purposefully placed to add credibility and to cover the hit woman who looks very much like Jackie Kennedy yet is not her. That is why they made an alteration in the route of the parade at the last minute so that only a few witnesses would witness this assassination and the ones that were placed would give false testimony. They were seeded so to speak.
But it is possible some witnesses were there by accident also and or because God wanted them there.
It is possible that power of suggestion may be involved in some of the witnesses observances and actions and even Jackie Kennedy. I am not so sure she knew what she was doing. Why? Because right before she does the deed she looks at something in a altered state (seemingly to me anyway) and then she does the assassination.
I think she may have been controlled by something else or under it’s influence and power.
This is the GREAT DECEPTION that is supposed to occur in the END TIMES.
THIS IS IT!
It has to do with Vatican ll, Israel, Deception of the Mainstream RELIGIONS (Which I believe is all of them.)
IT is worth investigating and taking seriously instead of as mere casual entertainment or tourist attraction.
painting referred to as “Pieta” meaning pity donated to the Vatican
In order for him to be on her lap she would have had to jump back in to her seat on top of the blood that spilled from his head onto the seat and pick up his body to rest upon her lap and she did not do that. Was there blood on the back of her skirt?….I don’t think so. There was blood on the back and front of her legs though and on the lower front part of her skirt..but not her lap!!!!! I think the Zapruder film and the films shown by CBS News of her appearance at the airport with the body of President Kennedy in the coffin provided being transported from the airplane to the Hertz at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland clearly show the blood on her outfit as lower than it would be if his head had laid in her lap. In order for her to have his head in her lap she would have had to sit on the bloody seat and the blood would have transferred to the back of her dress and from what I witnessed of the condition of the car from pictures is a mass of blood on the seat and no imprint of her skirt soaking it up. Here are some still shots from part 2 of this series of Jackie getting off the ramp from Air Force One with the coffin carrying President Kennedy to a vehicle at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. First 3 are the front of her suit and the last two are of her standing and you can view the back of her suit for blood stains:
Why isn’t there blood higher up on her dress? Because she was on the trunk of the car, thats why! She should have blood on her jacket as well. There was a lot of blood. There was also a frayed material which I believe was the puppet used to make a volley of noise such as in fireworks to cause confusion in the car as Kellerman testified about.
And of course if she is the shooter why shouldn’t she have blood on her dress?
Also the direction of the spray of blood from his head implicates her big time.
The spray of blood from the back and neck doesn’t occur. If your neck is shot there happens to be an aorta that would have sprayed a ton of blood
and it didn’t.
I think she may have rested him on her lap in the floor of the car afterwards for appearance sake by the time she reached the hospital.
The pictures show massive amounts of blood on the seat of the car.
Because she did not get back into the seat but huddled in between the seats.
If she had returned to the seat there would be blood on the back of her skirt!!!!!!!
Why does everyone romanticize her having his head in her lap and why is it so very important for people to have to lie about this point?
Because they don’t want you to know that his head was not in her lap.
You have to ask yourself why have they made such a big deal about lying about that particular point since she remembers why she went to the trunk of the car -to retrieve his brain parts, but doesn’t remember going to the trunk of the car which is so ridiculous, its scary.
She doesn’t remember that she did, but she does remember why she did.
The reason is because of the verse in the bible about the Son of Man hath nowhere to lay his head.
Now that they have figured out this verse they want to make his head in her lap.
The people involved and present at the airport in Dallas before the assassination during and after seem to be Men of the cloth, religious leaders and their associates and the Press.
I have heard rumors about John F. Kennedy having all sorts of sordid affairs even supposedly from Jackie Kennedy. I have not seen one proof of evidence of this rumor. I have seen a picture of Marilyn Monroe who isn’t Marilyn Monroe with some men posing with the back and sides of their head who are purported to be John and Robert Kennedy, but I am not convinced one iota. I believe they are fakes and I think that the Hogans Heroes star was one of the men involved in the false photography and probably was murdered because of that involvement. The woman in the picture looks like the actress that starred in the TV series called Dallas. Joan Collins with a blond wig. She does not look like MarilynMonroe …not nearly so pretty and soft. Don’t forget that Marilyn Monroe supposedly committed suicide. Joan Collins was in Dallas the night before the assassination with Richard Nixon at a night club, I have read about anyway.
I believe that the double or altered Jackie Kennedy was involved in affairs because of whatever it was that altered her. I believe that the double of Jackie who later worked for Double Day Publishers which coincidentally happened to be the publisher of the Warren Commission Report was involved in evidence tampering and murder of witnesses that might implicate her and used others under her spell.
I think whatever she was
was evil beyond imagination. Possessed!
Now whether the assassination is just a huge deception and JFK wasn’t really assassinated has occurred to me. I am not convinced he was killed in downtown Dallas. The reason I say that is because of the film at the airport with Billy Graham acting like Secret Service Agent Jack Ready and the other people identified seem to treat JFK as a hologram or something manipulated. However, they do seem to be highly sensitive and protective of Jackie Kennedy. Of course JFK could have been drugged with the drug called Devil’s Breath or similar drug and so might have been Roy Kellerman, and for that matter, Jackie. She and he might have been killed way before their trip to Dallas.
In the bible there is also a statement said by Jesus in the Gospel of John to his brethren who did not believe in him at the time
and wanted him to prove himself and go to the Jewish Feast in Jerusalem :
4For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly.
If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
5For neither did his brethren believe in him.
6Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
7The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
8Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come.
Jack Ready and his body double Billy Graham may seem unbelievable to connect to this assassination,
but I think it may not be so unreasonable to believe. Even Billy Graham says that that is what the Devil counts on is disbelief.
The death of Robert Kennedy and the death of JFK’s son with his pregnant wife and sister in law and the family’s relationship to Billy Graham and Cardinal Cushing and Roman Catholicism. The death of JFK’s other older brother before by a mistake of a robot.
The Second Vatican Council (also known as Vatican II) occurred that same year 1963!
(Seems to be a collision of some kind in time!)
Not to mention the warnings about Secret Societies by JFK.
There isn’t much said about what Kennedy was going to say at the Dallas Trade Mart which he was unable to say because of his death. No one really knows or is revealing, but they have hinted in various strange ways such as Nellie Connallys statement to him immediately before the shots rang out. Jackie’s comments about it-will- never -be -that -way -again -Camelot -type -stuff and being a hunter when needed such as in biblical terms I believe such as Nimrod, etc. His secretary Lincoln and her odd statements about him in prophetic terms. Billy Grahams statement to Golda Meir about not being the man: I am not the man God called me to preach. which if you punctuate in different ways has a few differing meanings and same goes for what Nellie Connally said to JFK before he was shot the first time. And CBS Walter Cronkite also hints about what he was going to say early on in the CBS News coverage of the Assassination of JFK. I wrote and highlighted it in Part one of this transcription of that coverage.
After seeing the identity switches in this post I think when John F. Kennedy was warning us about Secret Societies
he was not excluding The Secret Service and the Press.
Whatever it was that was going to be said at the TradeMart in Dallas I believe was going to implicate certain people and institutions and very BIG ONES who preferred his silence no matter whether he is the Son of Man or not.
The degradation of the Gospel of John by all the other gospels and their related epistles has helped me to see the following:
The odd coincidences, nuances, and names involved in the assassinations of our Presidents in the past that relate to the JFK assassination and the Covenant with Many in the first 3 Synoptic Gospels. A vicious cycle seems to be occurring and I believe it is related to the Covenant with Many spoken of in the Book Of Daniel and in the Synoptic Gospels,
but does not occur in the Gospel of John.
The Synoptic “Q” mishap that Billy Graham utters at the beginning of the funeral for President Nixon. His and many other clergys relationship to the British Royalty and the Pope of Rome , the Vatican and all the other religions Hinduism and the like reuniting with her now and globbing on so to speak
because of fear, I believe. Dan Rather’s comments about Well wishers.
Roman Catholicisms and other religions as well perpetuating lies and deception about God,
veiling their evil with their PUBLIC works but some of their work is pretty bad stuff
in order to rule, deceive, profit and ABUSE!
Another odd point that seems to be a point of contention by differing factions of the press and clergy is the time of JFK’s death. Was it at noon or one o’clock. In the bible prophecy says that he will change times and laws. The strange back and forth in the press of whether Dallas time is Standard Mountain Time or Central Time seems to be intertwined in this event. I have no idea if we have had a change but I don’t think anyone is going to reveal that change because of the implication of whether JFK died at noon and its relation to the Gospel of John and the woman at the well. He meets a woman at the well in Samaria
When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
2(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
3He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4And he must needs go through Samaria.
5Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well:
and it was about the sixth hour.
I have read that the Sixth hour is noon.
23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
25The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
26Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
Jackie and the Kennedy’s called John Kennedy by the name of Jack.
Jack comes from the name of Jacob.
The funeral and the crowd of people in lines that formed an M could well be a a W if you look at it from a different perspective. The Preeminence of the Gospel of Matthew promoted by Bishop Butler who was heavily involved in the Vatican ll and his appearance at the airport in Dallas the day of the assassination. The burial of JFK at St. Matthews. The riderless horse. The Warren Commission and Rick Warren’s relationship. The alteration of the bible at Dallas Theological Seminary in the last 30 years. The flood of evangelical teachers and tele-evangelism, speaking in tongues, making a spectacle of everything. The incessant drive to prop Mary up as Queen of Heaven and intercessor, etc. The trickling of information about the JFK’s assassination by her own daughter and our government.
Whether or not JFK died at noon, before noon or at one o’clock seems to be a point of contention in the JFK assassination at least between factions of the press even within the same network such as Walter Cronkite, Eddie Barker and Dan Rather
but mostly centered around what Dallas time is.
I think the reason for that is the implication of the timing of his death relating to these verses above.
The film of JFK at the airport in Dallas talks about a woman who waited 69 years to shake the hands of a president. That also seems to be related in a biblical way as the person in the bible who meets the Messiah at the temple who had waited to set their eyes upon the Messiah before they died. Only difference here is the number 69 which seems to be a mock of that event in the bible.
Then there is the Federal Judge that swore in LBJ to office on the plane is called Judge Sarah T Hughes,
who also was involved in the case called
Roe Vs. Wade
and if you are not familiar that case it has to do with the legalization of abortion.
The assassination of JFK was definitely a Turning Point for our country and I think this event
deserves careful attention and reflection.
The 2nd Vatican Council occurring that same year
and the beginning of the Neocatechumenal Way!
Not to mention Evangelical crud dished out on Television and Radio
from Benny Hinn to Billy Graham!
By the way if you get over the assumption that time only goes forward it will help you to perceive the
spiritual war taking place in time and space for the truth.
Time can stop and it can go backward as well as forward
like ripples and currents in bodies of water that are under and on top and in between.
What we attempt to learn now might well affect the past and the future and hopefully for the better.
But I will not stop until I do know the truth (even though I am tempted often to do just that and worse)
Because it is important!
What is occurring in the news around the world today should worry any reasonable person.
The control of people we love by something should worry any reasonable person.
In one or two of my posts I wrote about the Son of Man in a Synoptic gospel asking Peter “Whom do men say the Son of man am?” and in another part of the Synoptic gospels Jesus asks Peter,”Whom do ye say that I am?” Any way this article is about that subject. I hope you read it because it should shed light on the silliness and confusion that engulfs the Synoptic Gospels.
President Johnson’s few emotional words, his brief speech at the airport upon his arrival here in Washington, his first words spoken to the nation as President of the United States have recalled to many people here at the White House the first words of President John F. Kennedy, his Inaugural Address. Two passages particularly seem to echo in the White House. You’ll remember that the President said, “Let the word go forth from this time an place to friend and foe alike that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed and to which we are committed today at home and around the world. Let every nation know,” said President Kennedy, ” whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”
And you will recall that he closed with these ringing words, “In the long history of the world only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility, I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation: the energy, the faith, the devotion, which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve us, and the glow from that fire can truly light the world. And so my fellow Americans,” said Kennedy, “Ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country.”
And now we have President Kansatease answer to that question.
?????Slip of the Tongue?????
No joke he actually said Kennedys like Kansatease. I can’t help but think of the Wizard of Oz.
Is that what he meant?
Is that mocking President Kennedy by the Press,
or the spirit of the Press?
This is George Herman at the White House. Now back to Walter Cronkite:
Walter Cronkite at CBS Studios
A man who hoped to win his parties nomination to oppose President Kennedy in next November’s election:
New York’s Governor Nelson Rockerfeller received word of the President’s death in New York.
This is a shocking and terrible tragedy for the nation and the world.
Mrs. Rockerfeller and I join with all New Yorker’s and every American (LICKS)
in extending heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. Kennedy and the President’s family.
May God grant strength and guidance to Lyndon Johnson
as he assumes his grave responsibilities under these tragic circumstances.
The prayers of all of us will be with him.
I have proclaimed for the state of New York a 30-day period of mourning
and I have directed that all state offices shall be closed on the day of the President’s funeral.
Kalb was the last newsman recruited by Edward R. Murrow to join CBS News,becoming part of the later generation of the “Murrow’s Boys.”–Walter, the diplomatic colony here in Washington was as shocked as any other group of people wh here in the nations capitol when they heard about the President’s assassination. Perhaps it was best expressed today to WTOP-TV by French Ambassador Hervé Alphand:
–The tragic death of President Kennedy has deeply moved the French people
since ever and forever the friend of the American people.
President Kennedy has displayed a great fondness for my country,
especially during his trip in Paris in 1961.
And I must add that he was also my personal friend (licks)
who had always shown to me profound affection and understanding.
And our General De Gaulle said, “He died like a soldier. We shall not forget his example, nor his memory.”
This relationship between White House and The State Department is now expected to change.
Yes, because President Kennedy was assassinated.
Now the diplomats are under the care of Mrs. Kennedy or rather
the agile hit woman
with the red roses and a lamb-chop puppet
and who knows what else betwixt her fingers and in her arms (weaponry, that is.) in the limo!
Go to part 62 about the funeral she arranged
and see her courageous all male following,
except for the Queen of Greece,
her new “privileged female”
and her next stepping stone.
Which reminds me of Josephus and his use for women:)
Reminds me of:
Then took they up stones to cast at him:
but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them,
and so passed by.
Walter Cronkite is listening to a headset
The news, of course, brought this nation of ours almost to a standstill.
The Stock Market closed shortly after the news after uh stocks had dropped precipitously
with the greatest drop since Black Monday of the Stock Market Crash.
Throughout the country theaters closed.
And in Times Square the heart of the amusement industry in the United States that great street of Broadway is almost dark tonight.
Bernard Eisman is there. Come in Bernard (0:43/9:05 tongue):
Broadway is not the Great White Way tonight. All of the lights on the spectacular advertising displays have been dimmed. Put out.The movie houses with the flickering, twickering banks of neon they too have doused their lights and closed their box offices. In the streets off Broadway, the scores of legitimate theaters and plays on the boards, those that are successful and those are not. They too are closed. Even the little frankfurter stands here and there are closing down. As evening came, Broadway paid it’s tribute to the President. It went dark. Something it hasn’t done in the memory of very many people. Even the crowds and the traffic on Broadway are unusually light. The automobile traffic is not a tenth of what it would be on any ordinary weekend night. And the crowds walking the streets they too are very light. Usually here, it’s elbow to elbow and knee to knee as people fight to get to one amusement palace to another. Not so tonight. Now, they carry little radios and listen for more news of the Presidents death, or they read newspapers as glaring headlines brings home the reality of a tragedy.
This is Bernard Eisman on a very dark and dim Broadway.
What psycho babble! Talk about rubbing it in.
What is the GREAT WHITE WAY, Sean?
Is he speaking of
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC POTPOURRI?
IS HE PROUD OF THAT WAY?
He sounds just like another newsman in our day
who seems to be not who he seems to be,
and presenting a new word
I hate these kind of reports!
I’m speaking of Sean Hannity. HIS VOICE BUT NOT HIS FACE!
Back to Walter Cronkite YEA
No corner of America had any corner on grief tonight.
Across this great land the shockwave of President Kennedy’s assassination left a nation of stunned citizens.
Obvious EDIT and probably an OMISSION!!!
CBS News Correspondent Dan Shore reports some reaction from Bonn
and that it’s the German Chancellor Eirehart shocked,
has said that he and former German Chancellor Conrad Adenauer will fly to
Washington to attend the funeral services of the late President Kennedy.
Let’s go now back to Washington to the White House and to George Herman:
The White House of the United States is empty. President Lyndon Johnson is working in the office he occupied across the street, the Executive Office Building, the office of the Vice President of the United States. Ms. Kennedy is not coming back to the White House at all. Her children left the White House at 5:30 this afternoon presumably to join Mrs. Kennedy who is going into seclusion. President Johnson has talked to former President Truman and to former President Eisenhower, both of whom have apparently indicated that they will be here for the viewing of the President’s body tomorrow.
President Hoover apparently is not going to be able to make it. (licks mouth 3:20/9:05)
President Johnson met with McGeorge Bundy the President Kennedy’s Aide on National Security matters with Secretary of Defense McNamara (licks mouth 3:29/9:05) and with Undersecretary of State George Ball for his first briefing as President of the United States. ???????
As I say he’s working now in his Executive Office Building office. Oh really?
The President also met with the Legislative leaders of both houses of congress and both parties. He asked for their united support in this tragedy which has befallen the country. He said it’s more essential than ever that this country be united and he asked them to help with the help of God for them all. This is George Herman at the White House. Back now to Walter Cronkite:
Mr. Kennedy’s parents, Joseph and Rose Kennedy, are in seclusion tonight at their Hyannis Port Massachusetts home. They learned of the news of the assassination of their son from a workman at the house who heard it over the radio house and they immediately went into that seclusion. Attorney General Robert Kennedy, the President’s younger brother and his closest advisor, was having lunch at his Washington home when the tragedy uh tragic news uh reached him. The President’s other brother, Senator Edward Kennedy, was presiding over the Senate when word of the assassination reached him he rushedout of the Senate Chamber and he and his sister Mrs. Eunice Shriver later flew to Hyannis Point to be with their parents.
Another sister Mrs. Patricia Lawford was placed under a doctors care at her home in Santa Monica California
(4:50/9:05 rubs left eye with left forefinger)after receiving word of the assassination.
Next week was to have been a big one for the Kennedy family particularly for Caroline
who will be 6 years old on Wednesdayand for John Jr. who observes his third birthday on Monday.
John-John,as the President called him,
was to have been celeb uh celebrated uh with his playmates at the White House on Tuesday.
And the next day Caroline was to have been the star of a big family birthday party up at Cape Cod.
And all of the Kennedy’s had been planning to get together
for their traditional Thanksgiving gathering at Hyannis Port on Thursday.(licks mouth 5:29/9:05)
For the two Kennedy children and for the entire family, of course,
Mr. Kennedy’s death today was the second family tragedy about which uh they had to be told this year.
The first the death uh in the case the children of their infant brother
Patrick Bouvoir Kennedy last August the 9th.
To recapitulate where some of the other principles in today’s tragedy are at this hour. The Kennedy family as we have said gathering in Hyannis Port.President Lyndon Baines Johnson at 54 by ascension now the 36th President of the United States is working as George Herman told you a moment ago in the Executive Office Building across the uh street from the uh White House. Mrs. uh Lyndon Johnson is at their home in Washington. The uh two Johnson children, daughters, one is at school in Washington the other was at Austin, Texas planning to be a part of the weekend on the LBJ Ranch outside of Austin at which President and Mrs. Kennedy were to have been the honored guests. Whether they are going to fly now to Washington uh is not known at this hour.
And the body of the late President John Fitzgerald Kennedy uh lies at the US Naval Hospital at Bethesda, Maryland. The body will be taken back to the White House to Lie in State at the White House tomorrow. On Sunday it will pay be taken to the Capital Building to remain in the Great Rotunda until noon on Monday. It is understood, at the moment, that the actual funeral services which will be a uh full-dress State Ceremony we will be held in Boston but a funeral mass will be said in Washington by Cardinal Cushing who married the uh Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy uh the uh couple of years ago.
(licks mouth 7:18/9:05)
Down in Dallas, Texas one other individual who may have been a principle in this tragedy today, the man whom the Police say is a prime suspect; Lee Oswald, a member of a Free Cuba committee. A man who went to Russia and attempted to take up citizenship there in 1959 and returned here only last year has been booked for the murder of a Dallas Policeman shot in the Texas theater three miles from the uh site on the Dallas street where President Kennedy was assassinated and Governor Connally was shot. Seized some 45 minutes later in a gun fight after the teller at the theater said that a man who looked like he was running from something had come into the theater. He was interrogated for more than 6 hours this afternoon. He has been booked now for the murder of the policeman, but there has been no charge leveled regarding the murder of the President of the United States. (licks mouth 8:17/9:05)
In case he, or the culprit is found and charged, it is a simple murder charge in the State of Texas. That is not a federal offense. And he would face electrocution by the laws of the State of Texas in the Huntsville, Texas State Penetenciary.
We are going to continue our coverage of this tragic day in a moment with special broadcasts recounting the career of the late President and a visit with the man who succeeded him.
This is Walter Cronkite.
Picture of flag at half mast.
A Man of This Century
Good Evening. CBS News has brought you up to date on the events of this terrible day. CBS and indeed the whole nation is changing it’s habits as a result of todays activities. There will be no commercial programming, no entertainment programming on CBS Television or Radio until after the funeral of the President. Tonight it seems appropriate to take a look at the career and life of the man who was killed today. We’ll look first at scenes of his childhood.
John Kennedy was born in Brooklyn Massachusetts the second of nine children of millionaire Joseph Kennedy. His older brother Joe was killed in WWII when John ?garbled wasn’t then? the oldest of the family. He was followed by the four girls here with their parents. The family was completed with the addition of another girl and the two little boys Teddy and Bobby. The plump freckled faced boy is Ted age seven.
When war came John Kennedy volunteered. He was assigned to a navy desk job but he wangled a transfer to the Pacific where he commanded a PT boat. On one mission his boat was sliced in half by a Japanese Destroyer, but John Kennedy helped his crew to safety. For his heroism he was awarded the Navy and Marine Corp medal and the Purple Heart. His older brother Joe was also a hero, but he died in action.
Memorial for Joseph Kennedy Jr. inside the fortress of Mimoyecques (France)
“….Operation Aphrodite made use of unmanned, explosive–laden Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and B-24 Liberator bombers, that were deliberately crashed into their targets under radio control. These aircraft could not take-off safely on their own, so a crew of two would take-off and fly to 2,000 feet (610 m) before activating the remote control system, arming the detonators and parachuting from the aircraft.
After U.S. Army Air Forces Operation missions were drawn up on July 23, 1944, Kennedy and Lieutenant Wilford John Willy were designated as the first Navy flight crew.
They flew a BQ-8 ”robot” aircraft (a converted B-24 Liberator) for the U.S. Navy’s first Aphrodite mission. Two Lockheed Ventura mother planes and a navigation plane took off from RAF Fersfield. Next, the BQ-8 aircraft loaded with 21,170 lb (9,600 kg) of Torpex took off. It was to be used against the Fortress of Mimoyecques and its V-3 cannons, northern France.
Following 300 ft (91 m) behind them in a de Havilland Mosquito to film the mission was Colonel Elliott Roosevelt, son of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Kennedy and Willy were aboard as the BQ-8completed its first remote-control turn. Two minutes later and ten minutes before the planned crew bailout, the Torpex detonated prematurely and destroyed the Liberator, vaporizing Kennedy and Willy. Wreckage landed near the village of Blythburgh in Suffolk, England.

What the heck does CMA mean?
JFK said in his last speech in Fort Worth about Fort Worth:
“During the days of WWII the Great Liberator Bombers on which my brother flew
with his co-pilot from this city were produced here.”
Wilford John Willy, pictured above, was born on the 13th May 1909. He volunteered for the U.S. Navy in 1933 as an able seaman and worked his way up through the ranks, studying electronics and becoming an expert in radio controlled systems for Top Secret U.S. Navy weapon projects. He also became a pilot and was certified to fly various aircraft including the B24 Liberator.
Lt Willy had not seen any action during the war because of his involvement with Top Secret projects – project Anvil had prevented him from serving on active duty. He designed most of the weapon system for the Liberator drone he would eventually die in. Lt Willy had pulled rank on Lt Kennedy’s co-pilot Ensign Simpson, not because he could not do the job, but because he was determined to make project Anvil work, the V3 weapon site just had to be destroyed.
The plan called for B-17 aircraft which had been taken out of operational service (various nicknames existed such as ‘robot’, ‘baby’, ‘drone’ or ‘weary Willy’)
Is the man above actually a robot?
I wonder if it was a robot
that killed John Kennedy, Jr., his wife and their baby,
and Caroline’s sister
The man in the picture above standing next to a plane is the brother
who died in the mission Operation Aphrodite:
the one that Jackie Kennedy said lacked imagination
and could not have made a good President because he wasn’t creative enough for Jackie.
Of course, she had never met him
so how would she know?
He died in WWII and she did not meet JFK till after college. Jackies was 15 or 16 years old when Joseph Kennedy was killed in action.
Odd that she would say that in her interview with Arthur Schlesinger which is being
and is hailed as “Explosive”.
Jackie says that JFK didn’t want LBJ to succeed him …..
then why in the world did he introduce him as his running mate?
Why did he bother with Texas?
Give me a break!
Here is an article I found which is really very interesting and illuminating especially about the problems politicians incur by serving the American people. In regards to this post I hope you will read the section about the contribution to Civil Rights that LBJ made. Pretty cool article and made me appreciate LBJ much more than any other article I have ever read about him. Please read:
Do you get the impression that maybe Jacqueline really isn’t Jackie Kennedy?
The one that married JFK.
Why in the world would she denigrate JFK’s brother?
To enhance JFK after his death!!!
If anything she tarnished him in her own sick way and used his daughter for that cause!
In Her Own Words
Back to CBS:
With WWII behind him John FItzgerald Kennedy took a brief turn as a news correspondent.
He covered the United Nations meeting in the Potsdam Conference and then politics beckoned him.
sorry that was so short but wanted to add the following information because it seems to be connected:
Pretty interesting article linked. including some details about the the Potsdam Conference.
“…..In addition to the Potsdam Agreement, on 26 July, Churchill, Truman, and Chiang Kai-shek, Chairman of the Nationalist Government of China (the Soviet Union was not at war with Japan) issued the Potsdam Declaration which outlined the terms of surrender for Japan during World War II in Asia…..”
Truman had mentioned an unspecified “powerful new weapon” to Stalin during the conference. Towards the end of the conference, Japan was given an ultimatum to surrender (in the name of the United States, Great Britain and China) or meet “prompt and utter destruction”, which did not mention the new bomb. After prime minister Kantarō Suzuki‘s reply to maintain silence (mokusatsu, which was misinterpreted as a declaration that the Empire of Japan should ignore the ultimatum), atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 and 9 August 1945, respectively.
Kind of a damed if you do and a damned if you don’t kind of a situation, in my opinion. Ying and Yang. It’s hard to read how or what anything means when the leader of the most powerful religious order Pope Benedict xv1 orders their compliance and says that the Lord approves of that Neocatechumenal Way and then Earthquakes and tsunamis erupt in their country. Kind of strange collision of forces and I wonder who controls either of them. Perhaps those quakes and the tsunami were caused another way.
At the same period of time after the Popes demand and the earthquake/tsunami
a building in LA was hit by a plane and I think it had something to do with Anderson.
Makes me uh think of uh Anderson Alaska and uh Haarp.
I wrote that article soon after the devastation and upon further reflection
I don’t think the Lord approves of either the Vatican, the Pope, or whoever or whatever uses catastrophes to manipulate people, human beings.
Seems to me it is quite possible that the spirit that controls all of the above entities is one and the same spirit
causing death, chaos, and panic, forced servitude and slavery, and false worship and adoration
and making absolutely no sense!
That cannot be God.
Something is very wrong in Christianity and I think everyone should contemplate why.
Why is there so much confusion in Christianity?
I thought Walter Veith came near to why in his videos about the relationship between Islam and Roman Catholicism
and I believe it applies to the daughters of Roman Catholicism as well.
Protestants, Methodists, Baptists, evangelicals and all the others.
I believe it is the Synoptic problem
that exists in our bibles and missing the point of who Jesus of Nazareth was,
what he meant and why he came
which is included in the Gospel of John
and the misinterpretation of all of the above.
The jot and tittles that are ever changing which quite possibly may affect fulfillment of every jot and tittle promised.
The changes which are accomplished by the Chief Priests and the Legion to maintain their power and wealth at our expense!
IN 1947 he was elected Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts and he was reelected for three terms. On September 12th 1953 John Kennedy was married to Jacqueline Lee Bouvier.
Before the wedding Jackie was friends with Maurice Tempelsman a Belgian American businessman and diamond merchant.
(I get the feeling JFK was set up from the beginning.)
The serious back injury that Mr. Kennedy had suffered in WWII
continued to bother him throughout his life.
In late 1954 he was forced to leave Washington
for extensive treatment in New York City.
…garbled scenes from that Gala wedding in 1953.
Here is John Kennedy going to the hospital for treatment of his back injury. It was shortly before Christmas in 1954 that he left the hospital. With Mrs. Kennedy at his side he was taken on a stretcher to New York’s La Guardia Airport for a flight to Florida in a lengthy convalescence at the Kennedy Estate at Palm Beach. Five months later in May of 1955 Senator and Mrs. Kennedy returned to Washington. After a busy year the 1956 Democratic Convention was drawing near on a visit to Los Angelos Senator Kennedy was asked whether the issue of civil rights would split the party.
Part of some dialogue John Kennedy-I think there has been some question as to whether the Democratic Party would be split uh this fall. I personally uh do not believe it will be. I think the uh it may be uh torn uh somewhat over this question of civil rights but I think in the final analysis garbled the Supreme Court has spoken. The decision will be accepted and that the Democratic Party will stay united and I think that this is fundamental to our success in November.
At the convention Kennedy almost won the Vice-Presidential nomination but it went to Senator Kefauver.
Someone says: If there is no objection the chair will recognize Senator John Kennedy of Massachusetts:
Kennedy Speaking–Recognizing that this convention has selected a man who has campaigned in all parts of the country who has worked entirely for the party who will serve as an admirable running mate to Governor Stevenson I hope that this convention will make ?Edward? Kefauver’s nomination unanimous. Thank you. Applause
The convention near miss gone by Senator Kennedy plunged back into the Washington grind. By 1958 he was Chairman of the Labor Subcommittee and then promised a Labor Reform Bill.
Kennedy speaking This is a large assignment but the Subcommittee has now received in effect a mandate from the Senate to report promptly fair and effective legislation in this …..We are committed to fulfill that responsibility and as Chairman I intend to do whatever is within my power to carry out the pledge that was given last week to members of both parties.There will be a bill in the Senate this session and that is not an opinion I believe but a fact. The Kennedy snowball that started rolling in 1956 didn’t stop until the night of July 13th, 1960 when on the first ballot cast by the Democratic
National Convention in Los Angelos Mr. Kennedy received his parties nomination for President.
Someone a the convention says: Mr. Chairman, Mr. Chairman Wyomings vote will make the majority for Senator Kennedy the crowd cheers
A newsman says:The delegates on the floor are watching a tabulation uh by an electronic tabulator there.
Someone at the convention says: Mr. Chairman. Wild cheering at the convention
Newsman says: this is the figure as shown on the floor Kennedy’s 765 votes enough to nominate.
Adlai Stevenson at podium: The Democratic Party proudly presents to the nation to the world to the future our next President John F. Kennedy.
JFK, his mother, and LBJ
Kennedy stands and smiles audience stands up and cheers.
July 15. 1960
John F. Kennedy says–I want to express my thanks to Governor Stevenson for his generous and heart-warming introduction. Applause. It was my great honor to place his name and nomination at the 1956 Democratic Convention and I am delighted to have his support and his counsel and his advice in the coming months ahead. Applause. Let me say first that I accept the nomination of the Democratic Party. Applause. I accept it without reservation and with only one obligation, the obligation to devote every effort of my mind and spirit to lead our party back to victory and our nation to greatness. I am grateful to. I am grateful to that you have provided us with such a strong platform to stand on and to run on. Applause. Pledges which are made so eloquently are made to be kept. The rights of man. The civil and economic rights essential to the human dignity of all men are indeed our goal and are indeed our first principle. This is a platform on which I can run with enthusiasm and with conviction. And I’m grateful finally that I can rely in the coming months on many others. On a distinguished running mate who brings unity and strength to our platform and to our ticket Lyndon Johnson. Applause.
Interviewer: That campaign in 1960 was marked by something new in American politics. An important element was four debates between the candidates on coast to coast television. An electronic nationwide debating platform: Senator you’ve been promising the voters that if you are elected President you’ll try and push through Congress bills on medical aide to the aged, a comprehensive minimum hour wage bill, federal aide to education. Now in the August post convention session of the Congress when you at least held as a possibility that you could one day be President and when you had over whelming majority especially in the Senate you could not get action on these bills. Now how do you feel that you’ll be able to get them in January? Kennedy interrupts because it sounded like the question was through: Well let’s take the bill Interviewer interrupts: if you weren’t able to get them in August.
Kennedy answers: If I may take the bills we did pass in the Senate a bill uh to provide a dollar and twenty-five cent minimum wage. It failed because the House did not pass it. The House failed by eleven votes and I might say that two-thirds of the Republicans in the House voted against a dollar twenty-five cent minimum wage and a majority of the Democrats sustained it. Nearly two-thirds voted for the dollar twenty-five. We were threatened by a veto if we passed a dollar and a quarter. It’s extremely difficult with a great power that the President does to pass any bill when the President is opposed. All the President needs to sustain a veto on any bill is one-third plus one in either the House or the Senate. 1:30/10:19//Secondly, we passed a Federal Aide to Education Bill in the Senate. It failed to come to the floor of the House of Representatives. It was killed in the Rules Committee and it is a fact in the August Session that the four members of the Rules Committee who are Republicans joining with two Democrats voted against sending the Aide to Education Bill to the floor of the House. Four Democrats voted for it. Every Republican on the Rules Committee voted against sending that bill to be considered by the members of the House of Representatives. Thirdly on medical care for the aged, this is the same fight thats been going on for twenty-five years in Social Security. We wanted to tie it to Social Security. We offered an amendment to do so. Forty-four Democrats voted for it, one Republican voted for it and we were informed at the time it came to a vote that if it was adopted, the President of the United States would veto it. //2:19/10:19 In my judgement a vigorous Democratic President supported by a Democratic Majority in the House and Senate can win the support for these programs. But if you shend a Republican President and a Democratic Majority and a threat of a veto hangs over the Congress in my judgement you will continue what happened in the August session which is a clash of parties and inaction.
While President Kennedy was answering the question
shots of Nixon were in progress part of the time
and these are a few snapshots of Mr. Nixon:
He wasn’t even speaking at the time,
but was just sitting there and sticking out his tongue,
which is weird, don’t you think?
Interviewer: Mr Nixon comment?
Nixon: Well, obviously my views are different. First of all i don’t see how it’s possible for a one-third of a body such
as the Republicans have in the House and the Senate to stop two-thirds if the two-thirds are adequately led. I would say to that when Senator Kennedy refers to the action of The House and Rules Committee there are eight Democrats on that committee and four Republicans. It would seem to me again that it is very difficult to blame the four Republicans for the eight Democrats not getting a something through that particular committee.
——————— John F. Kennedy won that election, but by a very small margin. The victory celebration came in the Kennedy family home in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
The ceremony also produced an unforgettable incident involving the late Robert Frost as the poet sought to read his inaugural ode.
Robert Frost says: I can’t see in this light. He is having a hard time seeing what he is reading because of the brightness. It is about the new order of the ages that God. That in their Latin our founding sages God gave his approval of…gave his approval of
Someone gives him a top hat and the people laugh. Robert Frost says: … garbled ,,,Well, I just have to get through as I can and on the screen it looks as if he walks away but that could be an edit.
LBJ smiling and shaking President Kennedy’s hand after the Swearing in of JFK to the Presidency.
The Oath of office was
administered by the
Chief Justice Earl Warren of the United States Supreme Court:
Earl Warren says: You John Fitzgerald Kennedy do solemnly swear.
JFK says: I John FItzgerald Kennedy do solemnly swear.
Earl Warren: That you will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States?
JFK: That I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States.
Earl Warren: And will to the best of your ability.
JFK: And will to the best of my ability
Earl Warren: Preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
JFK: Preserve, protect and defend the Consitution of the United States.
Earl Warren: So help you God.
JFK: So help me God.
Very different oath than LBJ’s Oath of office.
I wonder why!
Sounds like Walter Cronkite who says: Then the 35th President delivered a memorable inaugural address.
Forty-three year old former Senator from Massachusetts becomes
the 35th President of the United States.
The first person born in the 20th century to fill this great office.
Inaugural Address of JFK:
Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, Reverend clergy // fellow citizens. We observe today not a victory of party but a celebration of freedom symbolizing an end as well as a beginning signifying renewal as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our fore-bearers described nearly a century and three quarters ago. The world is very different now for man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life and yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forbearers fought are still at issue around the globe the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of state, but from the hand of God. We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place to friend and foe alike that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans born in this century tempered by war disciplined by a hard and bitter peace. Proud of our ancient heritage and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed and to which we are committed today at home and around the world. Applause.
Let every nation know whether it wishes us well or ill that we shall pay any price bear any burden meet any hardship support any friend oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. Applause. This much we pledge and more to those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures, divided there is little we can do. For we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder. To those new states whom we welcome to the ranks of the free we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyrrany. We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view, but we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom and to remember that in the past those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside. Applause.
To those people in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves for whatever period is required not because the communists may be doing it not because we seek their votes but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor it cannot save the few who are rich. Applause.
To our sister Republics south of our border we offer a special pledge to convert our good words into good deeds.In a new alliance for progress to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty but this peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas and let every other power know that this hemisphere garbled and silence cutting in and out …..Applause
To that world assembly of sovereign state the United Nations our last best hope in an age where the instruments of war have far out-paced the instruments of peace we renew our pledge of support to prevent it from becoming merely a forum for invective to strengthen its shield of …..garbled and the weak and to enlarge the area in which it’s writ may run.
Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary we offer not a pledge but a request that both sides begin anew the quest for peace before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self destruction. We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed but neither can two great and powerful groups of nations take comfort from our present course both sides over burdened by the cost of modern weapons both rightly alarmed by the steady spread of the deadly atom yet both racing to order that uncertain balance of terror that stays the hand of mankind’s final war. So let us begin anew remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear, let us never fear to negotiate.
Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring of those problems that divide us. Let both sides for the first time formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations. Applause. Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us both explore the stars, ..garbled..of the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce. Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah: to undo the heavy burdens and let the oppressed go free. Applause. And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion let both sides join in creating a new endeavor. Not a new balance of power, but a new world of law where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.
All this will not be finished in the first 100 days nor will it be finished in the first 1000 days nor in the life of this administration nor even perhaps in our lifetimes on this planet but let us begin. Applause. In your hands my fellow citizens more than mine will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe.
Now the trumpet summons us again not as a call to bear arms though arms we need,
not as a call to battle though in battle we are, but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle year in and year out,
rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation a struggle against the common enemies of man:
Tyranny, Poverty, Disease, and War itself.
Seems odd but compare what Barack Obama said in his speech referring to the first 100 days and on the next 73rd day he would rest. This was said at a press dinner that he seems to have had to attend. His wife baring her arms and his mention of her arms and that she is the only one who has the right to bare/bear her arms. Of course she has pretty arms, I admit. She was wearing a fushia colored dress and wasn’t that what Jackie wore a fushia colored suit? Eddie Barker and Dan Rather’s mention of Jackie Kennedy (who I don’t think at that time she was the real Jackie Kennedy) and her arms “No one was holding on to her arms ” comment after President Kennedy was assassinated and on the Zapruder film shows Jackie holding on to something as President Kennedy is assassinated and heat vapor rising from her hand afterwards. What does all his mean?
So what did happen on the 173rd day of President Kennedy’s administration?
What happened on the 173rd day of Barack Obama’s administration? Did he rest?
Barack Obama mentioned building a library in his name also. What was that all about?
Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, north and south, east and west, that can insure a more fruitful life for all mankind?
Will you join in that historic effort?
People start saying Yes and applauding
In the long history of the world only a few generations have been granted a role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger.
I do not shrink from this responsibility, I welcome it. Applause.
I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation.
The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it and the globe from that fire can truly light the world.
And so my fellow Americans ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country. Applause.
My fellow citizens of the world ask not what America will do for you but what together we can do for the freedom of man. Applause.
Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world
ask of us here the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you with a good conscience
our only sure reward with history the final judge of our deeds let us go forth to lead the land we love asking
His blessing and His help but knowing that here on earth Gods work must truly be our own. Applause.
JFK shoveling dirt around a tree
After that inaugural it was not long before the Kennedys did some traveling. In the middle of May of 1961 the President and Mrs. Kennedy arrived in Ottawa Canada for a State visit. Mr. Kennedy wanted to bring Canada closer to the United States in strengthening NATO an organization in which the conservative people …garbled..our government was not especially favorable to. The trip was Mr. Kennedy’s first out of the country since he took office and its one big draw back with a tree planting ceremony during which Mr. Kennedy apparently injured his back. It wasn’t serious. His back acted up frequently during his time in the White House. In his efforts to soothe it dictated his decision to use a rocking chair in his White House office. Mr. Kennedy addressed the Canadian Parliament before he left and he said Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners and necessity has made us allies. There was no sign at the time that some slip with that spade had given him the back trouble.
June 3, 1961 –The next month found Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy in Vienna Austria. The purpose a Summit Meeting with Soviet Premier Kruschev. It was the first major east west confrontation to take place since the abortive Paris Summit Conference of 1960. These meetings between the two men produced no substantive agreement on any of the problems discussed however they did issue a joint communique affirming their support for a neutral Laos and their willingness to continue contact between the two governments. When the Kennedys that had arrived in Vienna they were accorded a far more cordial reception than were the Khrushchevs. On June 3rd both the Kennedys and the Krushchevs were guests of Austrian President Schärf in Viennas
Schönbrunn Palace. After the dinner there was an evening opera and ballet.
Later Mr. Kennedy had this to say of the trip: It was a very sober two days. There was no discourtesy, no loss of temper, no threats or ultimatums by either side. No advantage or concession was either planned or given. No spectacular progress was achieved. The gap between us was not materially reduced but at least the channels of communication were open more fully.
Mr. Kennedy added that both he and Mr. Khrushchev realized that both nations have the power to inflict enormous damage on the other and that war should be avoided because as Mr. Kennedy put it it would settle no dispute and prove no doctrine.
At the end of May 1961 the Kennedys flew to Paris for a three day visit to France. Mr. President and French President Charles DeGaulle discussed a wide variety of topics: Southeast Asia, Africa, the Laotian crisis.
Mr.Kennedy reaffirmed that the United States would stand by France and he pledged to keep NATO strong. American forces will remain in Europe just as long as they are needed Mr. Kennedy said as long as they are required ready to meet any threat with whatever response is needed. The Kennedy-DeGaulle exchange was one of unusual warmth. Mr. Kennedy had told DeGaulle he had come to France not only because of pastfriendship but because of the grandeur of Frances present mission and the vigor of her leaders.
John Kennedy came from a great Irish family descended on both sides of immigrants who came to this country in the mid nineteenth century. Hispaternal grandfather served in both branches of the State Legislature and his maternal grandfather the famous Honey Fitz or John F. Fitzgerald was Mayor of Boston and served in the United States Congress. The President’s father Joseph P. Kennedy amassed a fortune that has been placed at somewhere between two hundred and four hundred million dollars. He established a one million dollar trust fund for each one of his children and instilled in them a spirit of competing to be best and a sense that wealth means responsibility and public service. The family gathered for a rare picture together right after Jack won the election. They had each campaigned for him with the exception of Father Joe who chose to remain in the background.
This man who was determined to see his son in the White House served his country as Ambassador to Britain during the early part of WWII. He became a center of controversy for what were considered isolationist sentiments. Joseph Kennedy once said he was in complete disagreement with his son on foreign policy.
Once his son became President Joe Kennedy became grandfather concentrating his public attentions at least on his twenty-one grandchildren.
He also suffered a stroke shortly after these pictures were taken. Today he is an invalid.
The President’s mother the daughter of a successful politician who was once described as the Presidents best campaigner. The mother of nine. She lost her oldest son Joseph on a bombing mission during the war and a daughter Kathleen in an airplane crash. She talked about her family and her philosophy as a parent in a recent interview with Charles Collingwood:
In a family, of course all the children were different and uh uh, they understand that the oldest boy usually takes more responsibilities than the others, I think. Ah that was interesting. This is a digression, but when I wrote “A Summers Alive”
(That is what it sounds like she says-” A Summers Alive” but I tried to find this writing or poetry and there is nothing that I can find. So, I’m not sure of the above statement)
I think he seemed to feel that uh he was the leader and he had the responsibility. When we lost him then it devolved upon Jack who took it upon himself. and his father and I both mentioned at the time that we felt that he was assuming the responsibilities which his older brother had forme
