JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 14)

Walter Cronkite

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:

Probably Manhattan!

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.

Who

who

who 

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.

You, sir? 

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.

                       <——————Weird looking Sean/Sam.

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.

Just like in that movie Fallen with Denzel Washington.

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.

Please read:

Pope Benedict XVI and His Power of Suggestion

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?

We’re all crying in my place all crying.

You look as though you have been crying is that how it struck you first?

 Yes.

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?

Disgust really.

Disgust with?

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.

End

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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 …>

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.”

Another clue?

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!

================================

Walter Cronkite

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)

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 15)

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:

Pope Benedict Says “Faith was the True Enlightenment”

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:

 

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (NBC-TV

COVERAGE)(PART 1)

“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. 

In Part 2 of NBC coverage of the assassination of JFK

 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)

JESUIT SIGNS?

 I HAVE NO IDEA, BUT HE IS COMMUNICATING SOMETHING VEHEMENTLY!

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (NBC-TV COVERAGE)(PART 10)

Again. Frank Magee signals with his hand 6 or 7 times upon hearing the condition of JFK with more details.

6:29/10:39

============================================
Here is an interesting article from News With Views by  Thomas Horn :

PETRUS ROMANUS: THE FALSE PROPHET AND THE ANTICHRIST ARE HERE

“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.[6]“

(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)

Please watch:

FRANK McGEE OF NBC-TV SIGNS OFF THE AIR ON NOV. 22, 1963 (VIDEO VERSION)

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!

Frank McGee (journalist)

“……one member of the so-called “Four Horsemen” that included NBC newsmen John ChancellorEdwin Newman,

and Sander Vanocur. “

Sander Vanocur

“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

and another

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! 

IS GOD TRYING TO TALK TO

SOMEBODY

IN AMERICA?

“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?

No man?

Please read these two articles:

Salute No Man *

 Tell No Man *

  

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.)

A machine.

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:)

CBS News and JFK (The Body Snatchers) Parts 24-27

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 24)

I’m afraid we don’t hear the sound of Mr. Coralt’s voice. Uh, we’ll try to repair that technical problem as he reports on the mood in Los Angelos. Shocked as every part of the nation is. I’m sorry about that technical problem. We’ll seek to repair it and then hear from Mr. Coralt later.

Already in Washington the protocol which every great nation has in order to cope with events of this kind has begun to get into motion. The new President is on his way; has already scheduled meetings with Secretary of Defense McNamara, top aides, Congressional leaders. The Presidents body will lie in repose tomorrow in the East Room of the White House between 10 and 6 PM in the morning and there an elaborate schedule for viewing and the paying of respects to the late President has been set up. The family will come in at 10:00 o’clock in the morning into the East Room of the White House. At 11:00 President Johnson the new President of the United States, Speaker McCormack, former US Presidents: President Truman, President Eisenhower, President Hoover, members of the Executive Branch of Government who are Presidential Appointees will be ushered into the President’s resting place in the East Room of the White House. Then in the afternoon the Supreme Court and the Federal Judiciary. Later members of the Senate and House, Governors of the fifty states and territories. And later still the Diplomatic Corp will pay their respects. Then the President’s body will lie in-state in the traditional ceremony that takes place for Presidents who have died in office will lie in -state in the Great Rotunda of the Capitol. Then it will be taken to Boston where the actual funeral will take place according to the wishes of the family which have still not been expressed because the sense of grief and these problems have not yet been spelled out in any careful or orderly way. There is time for that as the, as the machinery of a State Funeral begins to take its course in Washington and then later in Boston the President’s home where the actual funeral will take place.

We have a statement here from Sir Winston Churchhill, former Prime Minister of Britain, the first honorary citizen of the United States, who called the assassination of President Kennedy, “A monstrous act. The loss to the United States and to the world is incalculable, said Sir Winston. “Those who come after Mr. Kennedy must strive the more to achieve the ideals of world peace and human happiness and dignity to which his Presidency was dedicated.

There has been uh a statement from uh the heads of all of the great states of the world as they express their grief at the death of the President.

In Paris, Charles De Gaulle a soldier himself (licks 3:36/11:00) said, “President Kennedy died like a soldier under fire for his duty and in the service of his country. In the name of the French people ever the friend of the American people I salute this great example and this great memory. From Charles De Gaulle. In a message to Mrs. Kennedy the French President said, The immense sorrow which has stricken you moves my wife and me from the bottom of our hearts. Please accept our assurance that we are with you in thought and in prayer. President Kennedy,” said Charles De Gaulle, will never be forgotten.” Another message to the new President Lyndon Johnson pledged the faithful and confident friendship of France for the United States of America.

On this day of history with so many confused and, we fear, so many repititious developments it might be fitting to recapitulate a little bit of the things that happened. The chronology of President Kennedy’s final hours which began at 8:45 this morning as the President walked bare headed and without a coat through a misty rain into a parking lot across the street from Fort Worth’s Hotel Texas. (licks 4:49/11:00) He spoke there and then at 9:00 o’clock he went to a breakfast. At 10:30 he went onto the Air Force for his flight to Dallas. And then began the tragic series of events which you know. He moved from Dallas out to a Trade Mart where he was to address a bi-partisan group and on the way he was shot. Governor Connally of Texas was also shot. And now the new President of the United States, President Lyndon Johnson, is on his way to Washington and to take up the reins of duty at the White House. (licks 5:24/11:00)

A moment ago we sought to bring you reaction from Charles Coralt in Los Angelos. We believe now that our technical difficulties between here and Los Angelos have been corrected, so let’s try and switch back to Hollywood and Vine and CBS News Correspondent Charles Coralt.

Aerial vantage point although most of the people don’t realize it….

except for the people with sunglasses on

seem to know about that vantage point….

Isn’t that weird?

——-

Even at this uh late hour people are still passing this corner in Hollywood with tears in their eyes. I uh saw a woman a few minutes ago walking along with a baby in her hands and she was clutching the baby and tears just pouring from her eyes obviously trying to comfort the child in an attempt to comfort herself. This great city of Los Angelos is such a defuse place that it’s not always clear these moments of mass emotion, but this city is overcome this afternoon by a multitude of personal griefs. You can’t see very much change in the face of the city, but you can see what has happened written in the faces of people; people sitting at the benches on the bus stops or just staring straight ahead not saying anything to anyone.

All the religious leaders of Los Angelos have listed services in memory of the President where people will want to find an expression for their sorrow. There’s uh Solemn Pontifical Mass of Requiem, a Memorial Service at the University of Judaiasm. A Prayer Service tonight at the First Baptist Church in Los Angelos.

And as for the secular officials, the politicians of the city who have commented

most of them seem to be assuming on the

basis of whatever facts,

that the death of President Kennedy is attributable to extremists. For example: City Councilman Tom Bradley said,

This indicates the dangerous degree of hysteria and hate which has consumed some elements of our nation.”

And another councilmen, the City Council was in session when the news came, Billy Mills said,

there’s no doubt in my mind that he was shot because of the positions he has taken.”

The John Birch Societywhich opposed all of his positions, it has commented too, in the person of Congressman John Russelo who  said,

no matter how Americans may disagree, this action is a 

despicable means to an end. 

First, Congressman Russelo said, this is not the proper or normal way to disagree.” (Big lick 8:01/11:00)

Then he made his statement stronger. He said,

But these were the reactions of politicians, men used to making public statements.

Coincidental statement by John Russelo of the John Birch Society and reminds me of what the stated purpose of the BGEA

(Billy Graham Evangelical Association) which is

“By Any and All Means”

which I wrote about In a post called : 

Rev. David Wilkerson and Evangelicalism

and Rev. Wilkerson wrote about the failure of in his last post on his blog before he was killed this last year titled 

When All Means Fail.

Coincidentally, both Billy Graham and Rev. Wilkerson are in you-tube video in the press/entourage of President Kennedy scurrying around Mrs. Kennedy at the Love Field Airport in Dallas, Texas a half hour before President Kennedy is assassinated.

The reaction of ordinary people people like those standing around me here at Hollywood and Vine was less eloquent perhaps, but no less deeply felt.

What’s your name, sir? – Ernie Lowenstein.

And how did you hear the news of the death of the President? – Uh, I was delivering cleaning to one of my customers when I heard the television say the President had been shot. And then, also I heard the maid say, “My God, they just shot the President.”

What was your own feeling? – Well, I felt deeply hurt, that’s the only way I can put it. I was uh not shocked as badly as the maid, but I felt very, very hurt.

What’s your name? – My name is George Kieser.

And uh, where were you when you heard the news? – I was in the Stock Exchange.

What happened there? – Well, immediately the news came over the ticker tapes uh at the Stock Exchange. Uh Everybody was shocked and the Stock Exchange immediately closed down and finally closed down with a loss of 21 points.

And  what was your own feeling? – My own feeling, while I am a republican, is that it’s a shame and a disgrace that anything like that could happen in this country.

Thank you, sir.

What’s your name? –  Sandy? Robinson

And where were you when you heard that the President was dead? – I was working at the telephone company on the switchboard and all of a sudden the lights started flashing like Christmas. It was too fantastic (?garbled) and our supervisors told us what had happened. And people just started calling all over the place. And I just, nobody could believe it. It’s too, there’s no words to express (garbled) that it happened at all.

It’s true that there are no words to express it and that feeling is obvious all around us on the streets of Los Angelos. This is Charles Coralt at Hollywood and Vine and we return you now to CBS News Headquarters in New York.

-———

All over the world people are going to remember all their lives what they were doing when they first heard that President Kennedy had been killed. In respect for the feelings of a shocked nation CBS is canceling all of its entertainment programs and all commercial announcements until after the President’s funeral.

In a special announcement by Frank Stanton, the President of the Columbia Broadcasting System he said: 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: the memorials and special broadcasts and all other news of importance throughout this period. (licks)

William S. Paley

William S. Paley (September 28, 1901 – October 26, 1990) was the chief executive who built Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) from a small radio network into one of the foremost radio and television network operations in the United States.[1]

Broadcasting pioneer

During World War II, Paley served in the psychological warfare branch in the Office of War Information, under General Dwight Eisenhower, and held the rank of colonel. It was while based in London, England, during the war when Paley came to know and befriend Edward R. Murrow, CBS’s head of European news.

Marriage to Dorothy Hart Hearst

Paley met Dorothy Hart Hearst (1908–1998) while she was married to John Randolph Hearst, the third son of William Randolph Hearst. Paley fell in love with her, and, after her Las Vegas divorce from Hearst, she and Paley married on May 12, 1932, in Kingman, Arizona.[7]

=========================

So the CBS Network is a warfare tool. Who is it used against?

The American people.

I watched a show the other night with on Fox station with Ken Stoussel (not sure of the spelling) and Greta Van Susteren and a few other Fox employees and the show was about their first jobs and internships. (Recently President Barack Obama also spoke about internships.) They are mocking the people of America and mostly the unemployed. They know that they are in a private war unannounced or unrealized by the average American, but they are, and are influenced by a very evil spirit. We have each had a first job if you have ever worked. Some people are already being singled out to prevent them from obtaining a job. They know it and I now know it. But they do it in such a way that others cannot see unless you are the ones that are singled out. That is why in the tribulation families don’t get along, because they don’t believe and they don’t see. Kind of a private and lonely tribulation. Very sadistic and it is…sadistic, and crazy…I might add. Not like the tribulation the RCC is experiencing because of their misappropriation of their own power. That is just a fake tribulation. They are not tribulating, but just drunk on the blood of others and their martyrdom.

This is what JFK’s infamous speech was partially warning to the American people and probably why he was assassinated. 

I know that Greta is possessed.

I watched it happen in an interview she had with a very famous evangelical. I watched as he took on her traits and sort of fitted himself into her like a crab inhabits a shell. It was subtle, but I noticed because of what I have seen and discovered in this investigation of the assassination of JFK. It was her interview with Dr. Billy Graham. Here is an article that I wrote a while back which includes this interview which is at the bottom of that article. I imagine others at Fox have been affected too.

Billy Graham and The Synoptic Dilemma: The Beast

As Billy Graham said that the devil relies on disbelief.

He ought to know!

Hearst also puffed Billy Graham.

================

Coincidentally, a woman named Jessica Ghawi an intern at Fox News was murdered in a theater. She had just tweeted some friends that the movie would be playing in 20 minutes then 20 minutes later the shooting began so far a I have read. I also read that someone in the Aurora theater appeared to facilitate the intruders entrance through the emergency exit.

That sounds like a set up.

Another coincidence, Jessica was in Toronto when a murderous rampage at a shopping mall which occurred a few months before.

“KDVR reports that Jessica Ghawi, who interned in the FOX 31 Denver sports department, tweeted early Friday morning from the movie theater just before the shooting occurred about 20 minutes in to the midnight showing of “The Dark Night Rises” in Aurora.”

“Jessica Ghawi was a prolific social media user under the new name. Her last tweet stated in all capital letters, “movie doesn’t start for 20 minutes.”

Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2012/07/20/movie-massacre-survivor-june-mall-shooting-killed-in-colorado-theater-report/#ixzz21MLx7HCc

I mean no disrespect,

but it ought to occur to any good detective in an investigation of this type

that maybe there is a link between the two events,

besides the obvious loss of life.

Jessica Ghawi seems to be that link.

==================

Not only is she a link, but so is the man she coerced into going to the movie theater in Aurora that night and 

her boyfriend Meloff who seems to have also been at the mall in Toronto. 

“Meloff confirmed that the blog post was true

and recalled the pair’s close call in the Eaton Centre shooting less than two months earlier.”

“If we had eaten sushi we would have been right in the food court when it happened,” said Meloff.

“Instead, we were just above it.”

 ======================

“Meloff said he spoke to his girlfriend on Skype, hours before she went to see the movie.

She also sent him a text message about 10 minutes before the shooting happened.”

“She just told me to sleep well and I told her I was jealous she was going to see the movie without me,” Meloff said”

In the case of the Toronto rampage the police said it was not such a random crime,

but gang related and targeting a specific person.

I think it is demonic and a form of communication using these public killings:

Police say they know who opened fire at Toronto’s Eaton Centre

“Our investigation clearly suggests this is a targeted shooting and not a random act of violence against the general members of the public,” said Det. Sgt. Borg. “Regardless, it was committed in a busy mall, in the heart of the city, with no regard for members of the public simply going about their everyday business and pleasure.” The deceased was shot multiple times, and an autopsy is underway.”

I would think Meloff might also be a suspect
and Fox News.
Something is deadly wrong with this scenario.
The man with the goatee who left the theater and gave the possessed, hypnotized, and drugged killer access.

This was obviously a set up!

I have read and heard some interviews (Hardball, Chris Matthews, Fox News and their Greta Van Susterne, and Nancy Grace) and it seems the press are skirting around the obvious….WHY? 
They are not stupid, so why are they acting stupid.
Who do they represent?

A Fox News Reporter Is the Vatican’s New Recruit

By AUDREY YOO | June 26, 2012

“The Vatican has a new recruit. Greg Burke, a Rome correspondent for Fox News since 2001 (and before that, a writer for TIME), will be joining the Vatican as a senior communications adviser. His main responsibility at the Secretariat of State, the government of the Roman Catholic Church, is to advise officials on shaping the church’s message as it grapples with various scandals, including a long string of sex-abuse cover-ups and the arrest of the Pope’s butler over leaked documents. Burke is also expected to increase the Vatican’s use of digital media and help English-language news outlets get greater access to the Holy See, reports NPR.”

“The 52-year-old journalist is the first communications expert that the Vatican has employed from outside the world of Catholic media, reports the New York Times. Observers of the Catholic Church point out that Burke, a member of the Opus Dei movement, has his work cut out for him. Not only does he have to help the church get its message out but he also has to deal with the rigid Vatican hierarchy run by Italians.”

Good job,

you helped Fox and now onward to the Vatican!

Please read article about events today such as the massacre in Libya, death of Ambassador of Libya, unrest in North Africa with

possible ties to Vatican rehabilitation to gloss the bad finish left behind in a perverted  Opus Dei, Greg Burke, Pope Benediction (a curse) kind-of-way:

Pope Benedict XVI and His Power of Suggestion

++++++++++++++++++

By the way Opus Dei is a very secret society even within the vatican.

What is Opus Dei?

“In recent years, groups of former members from other countries have gathered together to point out the deceptive and manipulative techniques employed by Opus Dei members and to share their stories.  Among these are Opus Libros, based in Spain, and Opuslivre, based in Brazil.  From the contacts ODAN has made, it has become apparent that wherever Opus Dei is, there is controversy. “

I wonder if Opus Dei is the Secret Society warned about by

President Kennedy in his infamous speech.

Some of the Press seem to be members…..hmmmmmm. Makes sense to me.

Hugo Chávez tells Venezuelans to drink juice not Coke

When Chávez took office in 1999, he referred to four major TV channels – RCTV, Venevision, Globovision and Televen – as the

“four horsemen of the apocalypse”.

He accused the channels supporting a short-lived 2002 coup by broadcasting cartoons and films instead of the protests that aided his return to power.

MAYBE CHAVEZ IS ON TO SOMETHING!

Speaking of the Four Horsemen

At NBC News there were a group of 4 reporters that were known by the name of the Four Horsemen:

 Sander Vanocur, John ChancellorFrank McGee, and Edwin Newman.

In RFK’s final hours, an interview

Here is another picture:

Frank McGee also reported

 the assassination of President Kennedy for NBC and he mutated

from one person into another as time progressed which I show in an article

that includes my observation of those hand signals and his alternative personalities:

Pope Benedict Says “Faith was the True Enlightenment”

===============================


Does Fox News represent the Vatican?

====================================================

Bill O’Reilly of Fox News has come out with a new book called Killing Kennedy:

JFK assassination gets the O’Reilly treatment

They have to be possessed either by their lifestyles and benefits to overlook and not even ask about the coincidences with Jessica Ghawi and the two terrorist events in Toronto and Aurora, Colorado,
 with the intent to mock and cover the truth to maintain those lofty positions and high salaries and benefits. I find it disgusting!
They obviously could care less, but love to act like they are concerned and celebrate the victims lives with the victims families.
No longer do they mourn.
They celebrate.
Sounds like “terrorists” who celebrate their martyrs in the act of chaos and death (even in families!) because they got away with it. They are brainwashed to this way of thinking. Very scary kind of mentality and put-on shallow remorse by the press who I believe are as involved as the terrorists themselves because it serves them, and their purpose. Very twisted. 
What they want is gun control and of course they have others on their side to do that lobbying. This is so transparent and sad. 
 Their purpose apparently is the same as Billy Graham’s stated purpose

By Any and All Means.

 President Obama also paid tribute. Did it serve him too?  

It is his duty to protect the American people,

but instead he will ignore the obvious as the others do

for his whatever reason and his whatever purpose.  

Coverage!

He already celebrated Ramadan.

Perhaps this event is just more of the same!

 Well, he did the proper thing and seems to have learned a few traits from the State Department

 …….biting his lip. Gettin’ more professional by the day! Utterly amazing. (REMINDS ME OF BILL CLINTON)

Does the biting help or had Obama been fasting?

Makes you feel it so much more! I would give him two thumbs up for that if I thought he were for real. But I don’t.

President Obama Speaks on the Shooting in Aurora, Colorado from Fort Myers, Florida

Now we have the Benghazi Libyan event which I wrote about in

Colorado shooting victims’ families blast fundraising charities

“Teves said $5,000 was given to each of the 70 victims’ families only after they threatened to make public their concerns.

“The victims of 9/11 had similar issues with non-profit organizations keeping the donations from directly going to the victims until a handful of families put a stop to it,” Teves said.”

Families of Aurora shooting victims say fund money going to nonprofits

“We shouldn’t have to beg to get a little voice,” he said. “They used our children’s pictures, our dead children’s pictures.”

Sounds like money seems to be important to these families. Seems contrived complaining about money when their kid just died. Or did they? Or are they mixing up the Aurora massacre with the Newtown massacre?

“Never waste a good crisis” – Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton says:You know, we have we have the Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel  for President Obama was is an old friend of uh mine and 

my husbands was in the White House when Bill was there and he said,

 “You know, ah never waste a good crisis. And when it comes to the economic crisis, don’t waste it. It can have a very positive impact on climate change and energy secur energy security.”

And that’s what we’re trying to do.”

Perhaps the massacre in Aurora will have a positive impact on climate change and energy security, as well.

Does that make sense?

 No wonder we have the problems that we have in America!

“We’re” (whoever we’re includes) creates problems in order to fix other problems….maybe this is what occurred in Aurora and Toronto!

Perhaps Ghawi was a problem to someone

and she needed to be fixed for someone in the “we’re” category in a public and a private sort of way. I know the feminine gender is under attack by that world spirit in a myriad of ways especially since the assassination of JFK .

I think in the Clinton Administration it seemed that a lot of people were suspiciously fixed including Vince Foster, Monica Lewinski, Ron Brown…..etc and possibly even Gabrielle Giffords and Judge John Roll in Obama’s administration. Pretty easy task if you use the right drugs and brain washing. Our government is deeply influenced and has been for many years by  ‘the Grahams’ (and the world spirit they sow)  and are not above abusing it’s own citizens and non citizens to accomplish these deeds as demonstrated by the assassination of President Kennedy and the press for the most part abiding in their good graces (money) assist in their confusion.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 25)

The President’s funeral will take place next week in Boston. His body will be brought back to Washington. It’s on its way now by jet plane. Will arrive in something like 25 minutes. It will lie in repose in the White House tomorrow. And respects will be paid to it by dignitaries of this country and uh and foreign countries. Then it will go to the Great Rotunda of the Capitol and in the traditional ceremony Lie-In-State there. The actual funeral will be in the President’s home city of Boston.

More and more reports, tributes, reaction, come in:

Gereral of the Army Douglas McArthur sent the following telegram to Mrs. Kennedy on the death of the President. I realize the utter futility of words at such a time. But the world of civilization shares the poignancy of this monumental tragedy. As a former comrade-in -arms,” said General MacArthur, “his death kills something within me.”

We still do not know who the assassin was or what was his motive. The prime (clears throat) prime person suspected (licks 1:23/11:00) is a man who was cornered and seized in a movie theater in the Oak Oak Cliff section of Dallas, Texas soon after the assassination. They refer to him as the man in a brown shirt. He shot and killed a police officer before he was subdued. The man has been identified as Lee H. Oswald, Chairman of a Fair Play For Cuba Committee. Now Fair Play For Cuba sounds more like a left wing extremist organization, not a right wing one, but we have no positive identification of uh it’s point of view. Oswald is held also in the slaying of the pursuing policeman who was shot with a 38-caliber snub nosed weapon. The President was shot with a foreign army rifle with a telescopic sight. (licks) According to police the suspect Oswald fired at Policeman J. D. Tippitt and then tried to shoot the patrolman MM McDonald, but the weapon misfired. Uh, Tippitt was killed. Oswald put up a fight and was subdued by a crowd of 600 people who had gathered outside the Texas theater in the Oak Oak Cliff district in of uh Dallas, Texas.

People of both parties continue to pay their tribute to the President of the United States. It is a shocking event that tren transends ordinary political dialogue in political positions.

We have some more Congressional reaction in Washington D.C. and we switch now to Washington and Neil Strausser:

————-

Friends and foes join together in sorrow at the death of President Kennedy. For instance, here is the man who recently led the fight to cut Mr. Kennedys foreign aid program Democratic Senator Wayne Morris of Oregon:

-In this dark tragic hour all I can say is what I said on the floor of the Senate: This is the time for every American to pray. Pray for the President and pray for the country.

Here is Republican Senator Scott of Pennsylvania:

-When this incredible news came to me I immediately phoned my wife and asked her to join all of us in praying for God’s mercy, that our President might survive. Uh, all of us knew him in the House and Senate. Uh he was our friend as well as our President. Uh today the nation unites in mourning in deep and tragic sorrow. Now our hearts go out to to his loved ones, to his family, and to all the people of this country who look to the President for their leadership, their guidance, and their inspiration. And truly the thought most with me today is that in the midst of life we are in death. And I know that all Americans no matter where they come from or how they are made by in God’s fashion will rally in support behind the President of the United States uh Lyndon Johnson.

(4:36/10:30 closes eyes and licks his mouth)

Democratic Senator Russell of Georgia:

-The news of this dastardly crime has shocked and stunned the American people, indeed the people of the entire free world. (4:49/10:30 licks mouth) The assassin’s bullet has removed from the most vital station on earth a brilliant and dedicated young Statesman at the very heighth of his powers. My personal relations with the President both in the Congress and since he was elevated to the Office of Chief Magistrate have always been cordial. And I feel a deep sense of personal loss (licks mouth 5:27/10:30The heart of the entire world goes out ta to Mrs. Kennedy (licks mouth 5:37/10:30) and to all of the members of his family in this hour. This Kennedy family is one of the most remarkable families on earth and all of us can but but sympathize with them in this very tragic hour. 

And the House GOP leader Charley Halleck:

 – (6:03/10:30 licks mouth) The assassination of President Kennedy is an unspeakable crime against all of the people of this country. The world should know that in this hour of national tragedy Americans stand together as one, shocked and grieved, at this unbelievable news. Political differences have no part in the personal affection I felt for President Kennedy. An affection I have reason to believe he felt for me.

================================

My mind this afternoon keeps going back to that wonderful series of pictures published just this week of a father and son. In case you’ve wondered, John-John, John jr. and Caroline were at the White House this afternoon when all this tragedy happened. And as and at our last word they have not been told. Presumably, that job will fall to Mrs. Kennedy when she returns on that plane in a few moments.

Sargent Shriver the President’s brother-in-law and Director of the Peace Corps is looking after the children, also is making the funeral arrangements. The body will go to Bethesda Naval Hospital will we are told, then will Lie in State at the White House tomorrow. The new President Lyndon Johnson, the Cabinet Members, members of the family, Justices of the Supreme Court, and others, will view the body tomorrow. Then Speaker John McCormack has announced that the body will Lie in State in the Capitol Rotunda all day Sunday and until noon Monday so that Americans can pay their last respects.

Speaker McCormack has gone to Andrews Air Force Base in nearby Maryland now to meet the plane bearing the body of John Kennedy and bringing in the new President of the United States, Lyndon Johnson. McCormack now is next in succession for the Presidency and recognizing that, Secret Service Agents moved in to protect him very early this afternoon. (licks mouth 7:50/10:30.)

The mechanics of the takeover are already in in-operation. President Johnson will meet at the White House tonight with Defense Secretary McNamara, as you’ve already said Charlie, with Defense Secretary McNamara and with White House National Security Aide George Mc Buck McBundy. Then he will confer with the bi-partisan leadership of Congress. The business of government cannot stop even in sorrow.

This is Neil Strausser in Washington.

————————-

Back to Charles Collingwood:

We have brought you much reaction during these past few hours from people important and people unimportant. What a weird thing to say! I wonder if he might tell us who is unimportant….the people in the street report? Charles Collingwood, the Murrow follower, an Elitist, I guess. 

We will doubtless bring you more. The eloquent ones have expressed themselves eloquently. Others have expressed themselves inarticulately and simply. But the sense of loss, the sense of shock, the sense of tragedy is very strong throughout this country and throughout the world.

Vice President, former Vice President Johnson now the President of the United States is on his way to Washington. He will land at Andrews Air Force Base in approximately half an hour. We hope to be able to bring you pictures, we have our cameras there, of the new President’s arrival. We have been told that President Johnson will make his first statement as Chief Executive when he lands at Andrews Air Force Base at approximately 6:15 pm Eastern Standard Time. That’s in about 27 minutes from now.(licks 9:17/10:30) Then after he’s made his statement he’ll proceed to the White House. Fly in by helicopter, as President Kennedy was so often wont/want/wanton? to do. (I’m one of those inarticulates and unimportant ones LOL, sorry) Begin his meetings with Members of the Cabinet, members of both parties of the of the Congress of the United States. Begin to take over the (9:37/10:30 licks mouth) reins of government that have fallen to him in the process of Presidential succession. The President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson, on his way now from Dallas in the plane in which he received the Presidential Oath in an impromptu ceremony in the plane itself administered for the first time by a woman, Federal Judge Sarah Hughes.

Now for the next period my colleague Harry Reasoner is going to take over this seat and this microphone and continue to inform you of all the developments that continue to take place as the nation and the world reacts to this tragic change in events. Harry?

Charlie leaves and Harry Reasoner sits down.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 26)

Thank you, Charles.

As you know, CBS has announced that there will be no commercials announcements and no entertainment programming until President Kennedy’s funeral. That is going to inevitably mean a certain amount of confusion as we change back and forth here; confusion of the kind that has struck the whole country today.

The text of what Dr. Stanton said was that 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.

As Charles Collingwood said President Johnson will land in Washington at about 6:15 pm at about 20 minutes from now, and he’s expected to make his first public statement as President of the United States at that time.

With more news coming in, the body of assassinated President John F. Kennedy is going to Lie in Repose at the White House tomorrow to be viewed by mourning members of his family and high dignitaries of the government. The general public will not be admitted. (licks1:28/10:53) The White House announced tonight that the body flown from Dallas by the same plane that is bringing President Johnson to the nation’s Capitol will be on view from 10:00 o’clock tomorrow morning until 6:00 o’clock tomorrow evening. That plane is due at about 6:15.

We have gotten a picture of President Johnson being sworn in by that woman Federal Judge which I think we can pick up on this camera that was done in the Executive cabin of the Presidential plane.

Always, always the swearing in of a new President has to be done within the shortest practical time after the death of the old.

Harry Reasoner quickly points with index finger to Jackie Kennedy as he says ‘Always’ and then returns his fingers to the side of the picture. 1:55/10:53

I was trying to think how many living Americans, how many occasions of this kind living Americans can remember: There was President Truman’s swearing-in after Franklin Roosevelt died. There was Calvin Coolidge’s swearing-in after Warren Harding died. And now, President Johnson being sworn-in after the assassination of President Kennedy.

There wouldn’t be very many living Americans who could remember the last assassination of a President, that would be President Mckinnley to which Theodore Roosevelt succeeded.

Somehow this is the the first assassination of an American President to take place in the era of modern communications of radio and television. 

Somehow the immediacy of the feeling throughout the whole country is greater. (licks 3:00/10:53.)

 I can remember, as many people can, when President Roosevelt died of natural causes- the shock that hit the country. People crying all over the United States. Radio, at that time before television went into something like a 72-hour dirge, the same feeling that it was improper to resume normal pursuits (licks 3:19/10:53 happened then, as it is happening now. Tonight Broadway has closed down. I imagine theaters in most parts of the country will not give performances. The Yale-Harvard game has been cancelled for tomorrow.

British television has cancelled it’s commercial announcements. (slight smirk 3:40/10:53.)

There is a feeling that while that kind of testimony (licks 3:45/10:53) to the sadness that everyone has, cannot bring a man back,

that it is only proper.

People will remember today as a date to date things in their lives sum/some in the same way that they did in the case of President Roosevelt. They say where were you when President Roosevelt died. They will say the same thing about where were you when you first heard the news of President Kennedy’s assassination.

I was at a twisting party at my home with my parents, my sisters and my brother and their friends. The party stopped and we tried to watch on a television that was not very clear. We were overseas at that time. Just as coincidental I almost died at Parkland Hospital in the same hospital where President Kennedy did die and supposedly Oswald also died. Parkland has been in the news lately as being a terrible hospital but in all honesty it is good and bad. The first time I went to that hospital I was misdiagnosed and taken off a prescription that might have prevented going back again near death. But the second time around the doctors saved my life and were excellent at their profession. I guess it depends on the individual doctors and their talent. Now some of the nurses were incompetent and I ended up having too many CAT scans without the proper ingestion of liquids but they did not care they just were following orders even when I told them, which meant I would need another CAT scan. I was their guinea pig and did not have the strength to fight their mindless-Ness having been on morphine and other pain medications.

It is a very good hospital in my opinion, but depends on which doctor you see as in any profession. Kind of like the difference between Dr. BIlly Graham and a good doctor or the difference between the Synoptic gospels and the Gospel of John. Or to put it another way, the difference between a bad shepherd and The Good Shepherd. The reason the puffed Billy Graham is because he is the Big Bad Wolf. The Beast.

It was a, began as a normal day for the President. He was having apparently a pretty good time in Texas, a very successful time on what was billed as a non-political trip (stretches neck and turns his head 4:25/10:53) but would had a great many political implications.

The tenor of his administration had turned to politics a great deal in the last few months, (licks mouth 4:34/10:53) and Texas was a critical place for him to go. He had gone there hoping for political benefits whatever the real purpose of the trip. (licks mouth4:43/10:53) 

Cardinal Cushing, BSO honored JFK

with Mozart’s ‘Requiem’ 45 years ago

“Bishop Joseph T. McGuire, a bishop emeritus of Springfield, said he was a priest secretary to Cardinal Cushing working in the adjoining office to the archbishop at the chancery on Lake Street in Brighton Nov. 22 when the telephone rang.

“Are you watching TV?” asked Judge Francis X. Morrissey on the other end of the line, “The president has been shot.”

Cardinal Cushing was meeting with the commanding admiral of the First Naval District, which was headquartered in Boston, when his secretary walked in with the news, he said.

When he heard the news, Cardinal Cushing did not utter a word as he stood up and walked to his desk, Bishop McGuire said. The admiral stood up as well and left without a word. As the secretary left the office, the cardinal started working the phones.”

Odd that Cardinal Cushing would be meeting

with an admiral of the Navy.

 

Is that what Cardinals do?

“The former first lady was sturdy throughout the ceremony,

but when the cardinal raised the body and then the blood of Christ,

she lowered her face into her hands.”

IS THIS WHAT WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW. I HAVE NEVER READ ABOUT THIS CEREMONY.

I THOUGHT THAT JFK HAD ALREADY BEEN BURIED!!!!!

WHEN THEY SAY BODY DO THEY MEAN THE EUCHARIST OR JFK?

THE REASON IT IS IMPORTANT IS BECAUSE OF THIS VERSE  IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN:

============================

John 8:28

28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself;

but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

HOWEVER, I DO RECALL THAT JACKIE HAD CHANGED HIS GRAVESITE AT ONE POINT.

WHY?

The article following explains some of the changes to the grave of JFK that have occurred over the years. One change included lowering his grave.

John F. Kennedy Eternal Flame

============================

Here is late information on the man that they have arrested in Dallas and who is called at the moment the prime suspect in the assassination of President Kennedy. He’s Lee H. Oswald. In 1959. he defected to Russia. He’s Chairman of a Pro-Castro Fair Play for Cuba Committee. He’s also accused of killing a policeman who chased in into a theater shortly after Kennedy was shot to death and Governor John Colony Connally was wounded. He was seized by another officer.

This is a picture of him. (licks mouth 5:17/10:53)

 He probably does not look exactly like this now after he had been questioned.

No, he looked very different as you will see in parts (31 & 52, 53)
When he was caught he wore a white shirt and dark trousers. Police said that there first description was that he was wearing a brownish colored jacket and such a jacket was found in the parking lot of a funeral home near the theater where he was seized. Oswald is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds. He has light brown hair. That’s Lee Oswald, Chairman of a Fair Play for Cuba Committee. That’s a committee of people who believe that Castro is not being treated fairly by this country; a pro Castro group.
If you had to guess as to what kind of people would have the terrible and insane personal resentment of John Kennedy as to attempt to shoot him probably the initial guess would have been that it would have been someone on the lunatic right. If Lee Oswald didn’t do- did indeed do it, you’ve got the spectacle of a of it being a man who is on the lunatic left. I suppose that it is probably true in the case of most assassinations of national leaders. (licks mouth 6:26/10:53)

I get the impression Harry is trying to say that the assassin is an assassin who has killed before
who takes on many forms, many disguises,

many shells

such as the JACKAL!
He has plenty to choose from.
I wrote a bit about him who I believe is the man hiding his face with his Jack-et in a post called:

Rev. Wilkerson, Evangelicalism

and the

Covenant With Many

Billy Graham

pretty creepy

closeup from a picture found at BGEA and looks eerily  like a young Rev. David Wilkerson

In the article above illustrates Billy Graham’s talent to mirror or mutate his appearance to those around him.

Below is an article and picture of a man who is thought  to be the jackal

who looks a lot like Billy Graham

David Sánchez

Morales

“During that operation he acquired a reputation as the

CIA’s top assassin in Latin America.”

I would say he must have been their secret weapon! 

But the man who actually does this kind of murder is not normally a great leader or a or a strong characterl; he tends to be a lunatic.

 I would suspect that would apply whether it was the Arch Duke in 1914, or the man who shot McKinnley, or the man who shot President Garfield who was just a job seeker who had no political philosophy, or the man who shot President Lincoln- John Wilkes Booth who certainly had no coherent idea of what he was doing. The man who attempted to shoot President Roosevelt and did kill the Mayor of Chicago in 1932. Anyone no matter how opposed to a national leader (licks mouth 7:09/10:53)  if he has intelligence and character does not take this kind of way to express his opposition.

And now for a new report we’re going to switch to George Herman in the White House. pause.

We’ll hold off for a little while in the switch to George Herman. tongue. (licks 7:32/10:53) 

We were talking about the kind of day it was, this day which now automatically becomes one of the major days in American history. It was raining in the morning when the President got up and walked bare-headed and without a coat through the rain into a parking lot across the street from Fort Worth’s Hotel Texas. You may remember that all through his political career they had trouble getting him to get a hat on or get a coat on. (tongue 7:57/10:53) At one, at sometimes he carried a hat in respect to the hat makers of Danbury Connecticutt who had objected to of having the President of the United States to appear frequently and normally without a hat, was not good for their business. He was perfectly willing to help out by carrying one, but even at his innaugeration he had trouble keeping his top hat on.

He spoke this morning bare-headed with a without a coat to a cheering throng of Democrats who could not get tickets to see him at a breakfast appearance. Mrs. Kennedy was not with him then. He said that she was organizing herself, it takes longer. Later they went to breakfast. The breakfast was sponsored by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. Mrs. Kennedy walked in some minutes late. It was her entrance that brought tremendous applause from some 2500 guests.

More news of cancellations is coming in: In St. Louis, Republicans have cancelled their Mid Western Regional Workshop Meeting today in the wake of President Kennedy’s assassination. Representative William Miller who is National Chairman of the Republicans called the shooting a national tragedy. He said, we are all Americans, before we are Republicans or Democrats.” That’s the tenor of the statements that we’ve been hearing today.

Now, I believe we are ready to go to Washington to to George Herman at the White House.

=======================

The flag at the White House was lowered to half-mast around mid-afternoon. The church across the square, St. Johns Episcopal Church began tolling it’s bell solemnly and quietly, one toll every fifteen or twenty seconds. A small group of people began to gather in Lafayette Park and ropes were thrown up to hold them in position so that the sidewalks could still be used. They watched the White House waiting to see who would come and who would go, but so far all has been quiet at the White House except for the visits of some sub-Cabinet officials who’ve come here to discuss arrangements.

Sargent Shriver the President’s brother-in-law came to the White House to be with the President’s children under the care of Maude Shaw (the nanny).

(woman turns around as he says Maude Shaw)

So far as we know the children still have not been told.

The arrangements for the funeral are also under the control so far of Sargent Shriver.

The arrangements at the  moment are these: The President’s body will be taken from the plane at Andrews Air Force Base and taken to Bethesda Naval Hospital for the night. It will lie in Repose in the East Room, the huge gold and white East Room, the Ballroom, the formal room of the White House tomorrow from 10:00 o’clock in the morning until 6:00 o’clock at night. The family will have the first hour from ten to eleven to view the body of the President. At 11:00 o’clock President Johnson, the Speaker McCormack, former Presidents of the United States, and members of the Federal J of the uh the Federal Government the Executive Branch those who hold Presidential appointments. At 2:00 o’clock the Supreme Court and the members of the Federal Judiciary will be allowed to see the body. At 2:30 members of the Senate, of the House of Representatives, the Governors of the fifty states and of the territories. At 5:00 o’clock this afternoon the Diplomatic corp may pay their respects of the nations around the world to the body of the President.

END

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 27)

Of more immediate importance President Johnson will fly here by helicopter from Andrews Air Force Base as President Kennedy has done so many times before. He will meet almost at once with Defense Secretary McNamara and with McGeorge Bundy who has been President Kennedy’s advisor on National Security matters. This will therefore be probably his first briefing on the state-of-the-world, the problems which he faces all around the globe as he takes over the reins of the Presidency. And at 8:00 o’clock President Johnson will meet with the bi-partisan leaders, the leaders of the House of Representatives, of the Senate, the leaders of both parties, to discuss with them what steps can be taken by the Congress right away. The events of tomorrow, the events of the day after, are still being planned. The proper protocol being checked out as events move here at the White House, move with leaden slowness.

This is George Herman at the White House.

=========================================

Back to Harry Reasoner

(…..garbled but I think Harry Reasoner says: As Noted) CBS News is going to stay on the air live throughout this day to keep you up-to-the-minute on the latest developments on the assassination of President Kennedy. There will be no commercial announcements or entertainment programing on CBS television or radio until after the President’s funeral.

Reaction from groups who did not get along particularly well with President Kennedy during his life are coming in.

East German Communist Leader Walter Albrick announced tonight that he had learned the news of President Kennedy’s death with sadness and with deep indignation. He expressed sympathy for the American people who had lost what he called one of their most outstanding statesmen.

Uh, among the ordinary people of East Berlin their reaction was one of shock and horror. One taxi driver said, “A great pity we all liked him so much.”

In Moscow, Foreign Minister Gromicko telephon telephoned our Ambassador Foyt Coller to express his shock and the greatest sympathy for the American people.

A US Embassy Spokesman said that official condolences will be conveyed later at the highest level, adding that he thought Premier Nikita Kruschev would make his condolences public tomorrow morning.

Communist leaders are aware of probably more than Democratic leaders of the danger of assassination, although in the very nature of things they take steps to protect themselves from it in a way Democratic leaders can’t. It’s been said often in history that anyone who is seriously determined could kill the President of the United States and is willing to lose his own life as a result, can do it. That was proven again today. No matter how careful of protection, if the President is going to go among the people, he gives the people a chance to strike him down. It has happened in American history a number of times.

George Herman gave the details on the …what is known so far about what is going to happen of the body of President Kennedy tomorrow, (licks)

it’s going to be flown tonight when it arrives in Washington, it’s going to be taken to Bethesda Naval Hospital.

Tomorrow, it will Lie in Repose at the White House to be viewed by mourning members of the Kennedy family and high officials of this government. The general public will not be admitted tomorrow. It will be on view in the White House tomorrow from 10:00 o’clock until 6:00 o’clock. At 10:00 o’clock the late President’s family will look at it. At 1:00 o’clock in the afternoon: President Johnson, the Speaker of the House, John McCormack, who is now next in succession to the Presidency, former Presidents, and members of the Executive Branch holding Presidential Appointments.

Interrupt that for a moment President Lyndon Johnson has arrived at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. He arrived at 5:58 Eastern Standard Time aboard the Air Force jet which also carried the body of John Kennedy. This is film or tape of that arrival. (Someone in background yells it is live, live, live) 

It is live! It is live right now with the plane coming in.

(garbled) jet engine almost drowned us out. This is one of the most unique and tragic moments in the history of Andrews Air Force Base. A field that is used to welcoming the arrival of Presidents and Kings and Prime Ministers and men like Kruschev and all the rest. But this time it has the sad or still historic journey assigned to bring back to Washington the body of President Kennedy who was assassinated in Texas earlier today.

Now a central ramp is moving now toward the Presidential Door which is the last one in the plane. It is a ramp which is covered and I think that the remains of President Kennedy will be moved out in that ramp. The ramp is now moving up close to the back door of the Presidential Plane. Up in the front of the plane we can see the rest of the party coming off. And we understand that President Johnson, Mrs. Kennedy, Mrs. Johnson and other members of the party are coming off from there. But from our vantage point we can’t make out any officials at this time.

Also at Andrews Air Force Base right now are members of Congress, a special congressional delegation, out here to greet the new President and to express the nations grief for the untimely assassination of President Kennedy.

We’re informed there will be a special bi-partisan Congressional meeting at 7:00 or 7:30 this evening at the White House with President Johnson meeting with legislative leaders from both Republican and Democratic parties.

But now we’re going through the sad moment of watching a turnover in government at the highest office. And former Vice President Lyndon Johnson now the President of the United States returns to Washington with the body, with the remains of his former Chief Executive.

We’ve been told that President Johnson can be expected to make a few brief comments before he leaves the airport.

And now we can see what we believe to be a coffin carrying the body of President Kennedy being moved from Air Force One onto a special enclosed ramp, a mobile ramp, which was drawn up to the back door. Yes, we can make out the casket now. A very solemn group of officials huddled down at the bottom of that ramp. We can make out Dave Powers a long time friend of former President Kennedy. A friendship that goes back to the days when Mr. Kennedy was then aspiring to be a first term member of the House of Representatives.

Now an Honor Guard slowly paces up the step on the ground below the enclosed ramp which contains the remains of John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

Off to one side we see Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara faithfully conferring with an aide, with General Maxwell Taylor.

Now the ramp is being slowly lowered to the ground containing the casket. And a grey US Navy Ambulance has pulled into sight and is now directly in front of the ramp in which the casket still rests. There is some confusion here at the moment which is understandable. This tragic day could not be rehearsed.

We still have not seen President Johnson’s wife or Mrs. Kennedy. Perhaps they …..

This is a scene at Andrews Air Force Base with a casket of, carrying the body of President Kennedy is being transferred to an ambulance.

Behind it comes Mrs. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy.

 Bell rings 4 times in background!

They are to ride in the ambulance presumably to Bethesda Hospital where the body will remain for the night. The one plane Air Force One carried the body, the new President, and the mourning wife.

Bell rings 4-5 times again like a cadence which by the way

 [from Old French, from Old Italian cadenza, literally:

a falling, from Latin cadere to fall]

It’s a Navy ambulance carrying the body and Mrs. Kennedy and Attorney General Robert Kennedy to Bethesda Hospital.

We have not yet seen President Johnson. It’s expected that he will make a public appearance and a statement here at Andrews Air Force Base.

It seems to be a Guard of Honor to welcome the new President of the United States.

 I heard an owl hooting about 5 times outside my window!

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 36)

For the reaction of some Dallasites here is CBS Newsman Nelson Benton:
-This is the corner of Elm and Akard Street in Dallas, Texas late afternoon and these are average citizens of Dallas, Texas.
Could we ask your reaction to the President’s death.
(someone in background says Hey in a VERY weird voice)

–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.   


Could I talk to you a moment, Ma’am? -Yes

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.

“….pit of the stomach.

A blow to that area, if it penetrates to the true solar plexus,

not only causes great pain,

but may also temporarily halt visceral functioning.

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. 

Replacement Theology

The-kill-love-when-you-see-it

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.”

End

======================================

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.

Minnesotan’s JFK painting bound for Vatican

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. 

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Why isn’t there blood on the back of the dress from the seat?

 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 :

======================================

John 7:4-8

  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

John 4:1-6

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.

John 4:23-26

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.

Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 37)

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.

Back to Walter Cronkite at CBS Studios
Senator Barry Goldwater was on his way to a political dinner in Muncie, Indiana when news of President Kennedy’s assassination reached him. The scene was Chicago’s Ohara Airport in Chicago, of course. Senator Goldwater expressed shock and grief to passerby’s, but otherwise uh had no comment there.
  Obvious Film Edit and back at 3:16/10:07

The power of the Presidency of the United States is felt, in one way or another, in every nation on earth.
From Washington Marvin Kalb reports on how the nations are feeling the death of the President:
   “Kalb spent 30 years as an award-winning reporter for CBS News and NBC News….>
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.”

====================
Back to Marvin Kalb:
They used to say at the State Department that John F. Kennedy was his own Secretary of State listening with due respect to Dean Rusk’s advice,
but rarely relying upon it. 

This relationship between White House and The State Department is now expected to change.

Big Clue Here! 

Yes, because President Kennedy was assassinated.

Now the diplomats are under the care of Mrs. Kennedy or rather

“her imitation”

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

CBS News and JFK (The Day America Was Restored) Parts 61-65

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:)

 
Until President Johnson acquires the self confidence necessary for his new responsibility and the knowledge of his new world wide power, he will have to depend to an enormous extent upon Dean Rusk his Secretary of State to run this nation’s foreign policy. That means that there will be no change in American Foreign Policy. No change in its commitments abroad. No change even in nuance. Only the personality of the Office of the President has changed. Someone might say that this is really the glory of America,  that in a moment of national tragedy there is an orderly transition of political power not internal political chaos. Secretary Rusk is now on his way back to Washington and expected to arrive here shortly after midnight. He heard about Mr. Kennedy’s assassination while on route to Tokyo for an important conference there with business leaders from Japan. Other members of the Kennedy Cabinet are with him and the Secretary ordered his plane turned around back to Washington immediately upon hearing the news.
American ambassadors all over the world have been notified formerly by The State Department about
President Kennedy’s passing.

Reminds me of:

John 8:59

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.

Messages of condolences from world leaders in foreign capitols have been pouring into the Department all afternoon.
The big and immediate question raised here waswill the Russians try to take advantage of this moment of confusion and bewilderment in the western world to press their own communist cause? There are no easy answers to this question here tonight, but the drift of informed opinion is that they will not. Confusion exists in Moscow too when there is confusion in Washington. And both capitols in the last 3 years have developed a healthy respect for one another’s nuclear power. Neither side wishes to push the other in a moment of national crisis. The Late President Kennedy did not last fall after the Cuban Crisis when he could have. Premier Kruschev was very low with that time. And now Premier Kruschev is not expected to push the new President of the United States at this moment of American national tragedy and crisis. Instead, both sides are expected to sit tight, take it easy, not rock the boat; certainly not until Kruschev has had a prolonged opportunity to examine the United States and the Western world under the new tutelage and guidance of President Johnson.
This is Marvin Kalb in Washington. Now back to Walter Cronkite:
==============
For how Moscow did react to the news of President Kennedy’s death we switch to Stuart Nobins? a radio report from Moscow.

 Walter  Cronkite is listening to a headset

(….garbled) news of President Kennedy’s by assassination came into this country by way of Voice of America’s English news broadcast at shortly after 10:00  o’clock tonight. The city was dark. Snow had just begun to fall. The streets were utterly empty of people. At 10:30 pm radio moscow interrupted its program to publish the bulletin of the assassination attack. The bulletin said that President Kennedy had been shot apparently by right wing extremists. That his condition was serious. At 10:45 also television made the same announcement and then added a further bulletin that the President was in critical condition. At 10:50, (1:50 Dallas time, unless there has been a time zone change since 1963?) the English language version of Tass, the overseas news agency, carried this report. It said, “It has just been officially announced that United States President John F. Kennedy has died in the hospital after an attempt was made on his life by persons believed to be from among the extreme right wing elements. At 10:57, Radio Moscow again interrupted its regular service to announce that the President had been murdered. The announcement was brief, respectful, and it was followed immediately by the playing of slow sad music.

United States Ambassador Kholer told me when I was able to reach him at the residence Spaso House that he felt devastated.
He almost mumbled as he talked to me in what obviously was great grief.
He said that he and Mrs. Kholer had been at home alone, not a social evening, when the news came in.
He said, “I feel terrible. I can’t even say what I feel. I’m devastated.”
At Moscow University, where several American students are living and studying, they too heard the first reports over Voice of America.
Since the signing of the Nuclear Test Ban Voice of America in English has not been jammed here.
The students had first refused to believe the report. Then when doubting was no longer a refuge there was silence, shock, and half-whispered reactions:
what will happen now? It’s terrible.
One man just stood and wept.
Russian students, friends of the Americans, came in quietly and shook hands and expressed sorrow. One Russian said, “Kennedy was a liberal. What will happen in the world now?”  Friends of this reporter are among some russians here telephoned immediately when they heard the news. They offered their sympathy and condolence. One thought almost as if they too could feel what an American must feel when his President has been assassinated.
This is (?Stuart Nobins?) in Moscow.
END
=====================================

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 38)

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,

Seanin’ itself

and presenting a new word

‘twickering’


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. 

(licks mouth 6:37/9:05)

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.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 48)

Now this weapon was found in the building. Perhaps we should say reportedly found in the building from which the shot was fired on the Sixth floor. The man who used the weapon had a clear line of sight to the President’s motorcade although he was located about a block away because he was on the sixth floor of the building he had a clear line of sight on him.

Around the window from which the shot has been believed to have been fired there were bits of fried chicken indicating the man who used that gun had had a chicken lunch while waiting for the President’s motorcade. Also there were some text books and some boxes stacked up in that same window indicating the sniper apparently or possibly rested his gun on some textbooks and some wooden boxes to study?/steady? (not sure which he meant to say) his shot as he opened up on the President.

The man obviously was an excellent shot or very lucky in that witnesses said that 3 shots were fired. At least two of them found their marks. One for the President, the shot that killed him. The other, the shot that wounded Texas Governor John Connally. There has been at least one report that there were two shots that hit the President which would indicate that all three of the shots found their mark.

Now, we’ll go back to Dallas Police Headquarters and KRLD Bill Mercer as he interviews policemen Gerry Hill who has been working on the case almost from the moment that the shot which killed the President was fired. Policeman Gerry Hill has been at the Police Headquarters and has been in the room some of the time, the room in which Oswald has been questioned.

On the left looks like John Travolta from Grease in the news lately having to do with massage shop vampire gayness or the Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales. Looks like either from the profile.

  Gerry: The shots were fired. Spent cartridges were found on the Sixth floor uh on the southeast window and we came back downstairs at this time after securing the scene to leave all the evidence with the crime lab.

When we got back downstairs and were talking to one of the officers on the street about what we had found upstairs we received notice by a citizen who was using a police radio that an officer had been shot in the Oak Cliff section of the city.

Q: That was uh Mr. Tippit.

A: That was Tippit. At this time uh Sargent Owens and I were instructed by the inspector in charge at the scene to report to Oak Cliff and begin the investigation out there. On our arrival we obtained a description of a suspect and we began tracing his steps through the aid of civilian witnesses. When we uh first received a location on him they said he was in one of two vacant buildings that were being used for furniture storage in the 400 block of East Jefferson. We reported to this location and uh called for some assistance to secure the buildings. And at that time we went into the buildings checked them out to determine that the suspect wasn’t there.

While we were still at this location we received word that he was in the library at Marseilles and Jefferson. We reported to that scene and then we uh found out this was also a bogus call.

But then the third call which proved to be the charm. Came out that the suspect had entered the Texas theater some 5 blocks away. When we arrived at this location uh we secured the building from the outside and Ray Hawkins and Eddy MacDonald, CT Walker, Bob Carroll, Paul Bently, KE Lines, myself, and other officers went into the building and we began a systematic check of all the suspects or all the people who were the in the theater.

As Officer MacDonald approached a suspect sitting on the third row in the back of the theater. The suspect jumped up and yelled, “This is it.”and took a swing at the officer. Officer MacDonald started to grapple with the man. As he reached for a gun which was concealed under his shirt. And uh the gun was fired one time by the suspect but luckily it misfired. The uh the pin hit the shell but it did not fire. MacDonald yelled for help. And the other officers in the theater and I managed to subdue the man, disarm him and hand cuff him.

At that time we brought him out of the building put him in a squad car and brought him straight to Homicide and Robbery and turned him over to Captain Fritz.

Q: Who were those officers Gerry?

A: Uh Officer Hawkins, MacDonald,CT Walker, Bob Carroll, KE Lines, Paul Bently, and myself were the ones that were actually in along with Bob Barrett from the FBI who was in on the arrest with us also.

=====================

Back to Dan Rather in the studio

And now very quickly back to Dallas Police Headquarters for a videotaped live camera scene of Lee Oswald as he was brought into another room for questioning.

Against the wall…. Step back….

Here is the suspect.

Could we reroll it please.

REROLL IT? ACTION:

The suspect is…

Back against the wall…

All right you want to….

Oswald: give me a hearing without legal representation or anything

You shoot the President?

Oswald: I didn’t shoot anybody, no sir.

Notice the man in the center of the picture who looks like a zombie in a daze. Not even looking at the subject of the picture and the center of everyone else’s attention …Oswald, but he looks like he is looking at the wall, I guess.

He kind of looks like George Wildman Ball,

a diplomat,

 7th 

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.

 Hmmmmm. That’s odd!.

Wikipedia says that George Ball was protecting others in Washington:

“Under Secretary of State George Ball manned the operations center at the State Department so that no incident happened.[114]

because of the plethora of dignitaries from all over the world

that were in Washington DC. attending JFK’s funeral.

The State Department is headquartered in the Harry S. Truman Building a few blocks from the White House and yet here he is in this picture with Lee Oswald.

Was he in Dallas or was he in Washington?

I have a post that tells a little bit about him linked below:

President Obama Spiking Hardball

As  you just heard Oswald says he did not shoot anybody.

You don’t have to push…..

Knock it off….

I’m being pummeled here.

Knock it off…..

I’m being pummeled very heavily. You just heard Oswald say I did no shoot anybody.

Whew.

A scene of GREAT CONFUSION, but it does seemed contrived.

IF THEY WANTED A SCENE WITHOUT THIS HYSTERIA

THEY WOULD HAVE EMPTIED THE HALLWAY.

Obviously it was convenient.

Lee Oswald has been charged with the killing of a Dallas Policeman. He has not been charged in connection with the death of President Kennedy. This is Dan Rather in Dallas, Texas.

Back now to Harry Reasoner in New York:

==========================

Lets us go right away to the White House in Washington and a report from George Herman:

President Lyndon Johnson left his offices here almost exactly an hour ago. His old offices next door in the Executive Office Building his office which he occupied as the Vice President of the United States. Tomorrow morning he’ll be back in the Oval Office here in the West Wing, the Office of the President. Before he left tonight President Johnson conferred with the top advisors of the Kennedy Administration: Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, Assistant Secretary of State George Ball other leaders, Congressional Leaders of both parties from the House and from the Senate. He talked by telephone with J. Edgar Hoover discussing the progress of the investigation into who who was the assassin of the late President Kennedy. He talked to Texas to talk to the doctors of Governor Connally. Was told that Governor Connally’s condition was good.

Tomorrow at 9:30 Lyndon Johnson starts his first full day as President of the United States. Meets at 9:30 at his office with the Secretary of State Secretary Rusk. Secretary Rusk has been flying all night. Is expected back here in Washington around midnight. He and five other Cabinet Officers were on their way to an important economic meeting in Japan when they heard the word in the Mid Pacific turned around and on on their way back to Washington.

Around the same time that President Johnson meets with Secretary Rusk, Mrs. Kennedy and the body of the late President will be entering the White House. The President’s body will Lie-In-Repose in the East Room, the gold and white East Room, of the White House where President Kennedy provided/presided over so many dinners, so many formal entertainments as President of the United States. Tomorrow the body will be seen by the family and by officials of the United States Government. After that it will be taken from the White House in an official cortege to the Rotunda of the United States Capital at 1:00 o’clock Sunday and there it will lie not in repose. but In-State for one day. Members in the President’s family, his Cabinet, and government leaders and members of the Supreme Court and Congress and Diplomatic representatives of the countries of the earth will be present at ceremonies placing the President’s body in the condition of Full-State-Mourning.

The public will be permitted to file past the beer (not sure what this is) in the Rotunda shortly after it’s arrival and until 9:00 Sunday night and once again Monday morning from 9 until 10:00 o’clock in the morning. Then the body will be moved Monday at 11:00 o’clock to St.Matthews Cathedral between 17th and 18th Street Northwest on Rhode Island Avenue for a pontifical requiem. A requiem mass at 12:00 o’clock noon. The mass will be celebrated by the late President’s good friend his eminence Richard Cardinal Cushing the Archbishop of Boston.

The late President Kennedy had once discussed the question of possible assassination with CBS News Correspondent Charles Von Fremd. Here are Correspondent Von Fremd’s recollections of that event.

======================

A casual conversation with John Kennedy about 12,000 feet over the Great Plains in early July of 19 hundred and 60 came back to haunt me today. On that July evening I was one of 4 newsmen flying with the Democratic Presidential hopeful in his family plane The Caroline on a flight back from South Dakota. The Primaries were behind the Senator. He had won them all. Earlier that day he had won pledges from 4 South Dakota Delegates to the Democratic Presidential Convention that was to start 10 days later. The Senator was confident and for the first time really thought  the White House might be his.

He knew that I had covered the White House during 6 years of the Eisenhower Administration and asked how living in the White House would differ from the day to day life of a Junior Senator from Massachussetts. Among other things I pointed out to Senator Kennedy the Secret Service would endow/allow (not sure if endow is the right word but sounds like it but it does not make any sense but then neither does allow!) to a great extent, that is, if he won the White House dictate how he moved about outside the White House. The President for instance was told by the Secret Service when and where he could take care of physical necessities while on the road: The food he ate, the highways he took had to be approved by the SS.

 The Senator slapping his thigh in a characteristic gesture said he thought the Secret Service while a dedicated and confident organization was really faced with an impossible responsibility. John Kennedy argued that any intelligent sharp shooter however mad could gun down the President of the United States if he wanted to badly enough and planned it carefully enough. He thought the Secret Service agents running along side the Presidential limousine in the motorcade only succeeded really in just blocking the view of the average public who turned out to see him.

President Kennedy did make some drastic changes in Secret Service rules. He frequently relegated the Secret Service driver to the back seat of his limousine and took the wheel himself. On his recent trip to New York City he drove the Secret Service Agents and the City Police to despair by dispensing with the heavily protected motorcade.

He often popped out of hotel suites minus a Security Guard. 

A slur insinuating nonsense. Give me a break!

How would Charles Von Fremd know?

End

===========================

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 49)

Like many men who have had several brushes with death and survived John Kennedy treated death with contempt.

It is ironic that when the assassin’s bullet came it came when he was under heavy security guard.

And in death,  John Kennedy proved himself a prophet (Licks)

I can still hear him observe in that cool casual manner aboard The Caroline more than 3 years ago that an intelligent sharp shooter could gun down the President if he wanted to badly enough.

It was a risk that John Kennedy enthusiastically chose to take and it cost him his life today (Licks)

This is Charles Von Fremd in Washington. (Licks).

(Of course, it wasn’t a sharp shooter it was Jackie sitting next to him that killed him.

Or her double.

The Zapruder film shows Jackie with a smoking weapon.) 

==================

Back to Harry Reasoner:

Here is a brief summary of the events of the day and those to come. Upon today’s assassination of President Kennedy Lyndon B. Johnson became the new President of the United States. The body of President Kennedy will Lie-In-Repose in the East Room of the White House all day tomorrow Saturday. On Sunday a cortege will move the late President to the Rotunda of the Capitol where he will Lie-In-State Sunday afternoon and Monday.

The White House announced tonight that former Presidents Eisenhower and Truman will go to Washington this weekend to join the nation in it’s official mourning. On Monday at noon Boston’s Richard Cardinal Cushing a close friend of the family will officiate at a at a pontifical requiem mass in Washington St. Matthew’s Cathedral.

Throughout this coming weekend President Johnson will be briefed by the men who are now his Presidential Advisors as those Cabinet and government officials return to their posts in the Capitol.

In Dallas the business of bringing an assassin to justice continues. Police say they have a prime suspect in 24 year old Lee Harvey Oswald a pro Castro Marxist who once defected to Russian then returned to this country claiming disillusionment with the Soviet system.

For the moment Oswald has been charged with the murder of a Dallas policeman killed on a street near the assassination’s scene. Police say that Oswald was in the building from which the President was shot at the time of the assassination. Oswald has denied any involvement in the assassination.

Texas Governor John Connally the second victim of the shooting is reported in satisfactory condition at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, he is expected to recover.

CBS News reported earlier today that Senator Goldwater was reached with the news of President Kennedy’s death as he was flying to Muncie Indiana for a political dinner. This in fact was not the case. The Senator was on his way to attend the funeral of his mother-in-law. Senator Goldwater called the President’s death shocking and dreadful and asked, “how can a thing like this happen? The President’s death is a profound loss to the nation and the world,” said Goldwater. “He and I were personal friends. This is also a great loss to me. Mrs. Goldwater and I offer our heartfelt sympathies to Mrs. Kennedy and the President’s family.” That reaction from Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona.

In Washington if there is a hope and a sign tonight the new President of the United States has it. He has plunged head long into his new and monumental duties with full energy reportedly anxious to get the machinery of government moving as quickly as possible.

The CBS Television Network will broadcast no commercial entertainment and no programming until after the burial of the late President Kennedy which will probably be on Tuesday in Boston, Massachussetts. CBS will return on the network tomorrow and through the weekend to continue to report on the latest developments as President Johnson assumes his new duties and responsibilities.

At 6:03 P.M. Lyndon Baines Johnson age 55 returned to Washington aboard an Air Force jet as the 36th President of the United States.

Johnson remained aboard the plane until President Kennedy’s body had been removed. Then he and Mrs. Johnson walked slowly down the ramp and over to a group of waiting Congressmen. For 23 years of his 26 years in national politics Mr. Johnson had served with these men, first as a congressman, later as a United States Senator. These were his friends the men he knew and understood best.

Johnson helped to pull Texas and Louisiana gack in to the Democratic Column. Both had voted for Dwight Eisenhower in 1956. Mr. Johnson campaigned with his characteristic energy:

“……are against sweat shops in the Democratic Party and so are you.

We are for the working people in the Democratic Party and so are you.

We are for the working people in the Democratic Party and so are you.

We are for the farmer in the Democratic farmer and so are you.

We are against bigotry in the Democratic Party.

We are for equality before the law of all men regardless of race, religion, or the region in which they live and so are you.

And if you will give us your hand, and if you will renounce the  and the Coolidges and the Hoovers and the Bensons and the Nixons and give us your hand and your heart, your voice and your vote, on January the 20th we will give all the people of all the states of all the regions an Administration that will be of the people by the people and for the people.

Goodbye and God bless you!”

====================

Back to Harry Reasoner

The results of that campaign are now history. the Kennedy Johnson ticket squeaked through with a plurality of just over a hundred thousand votes. On a cold blustery day in January Lyndon Johnson stood before an inaugural crowd in Washington to be sworn in as Vice President by his old friend Sam Rayburn:

Sam Rayburn: I, Lyndon Baines Johnson….

LBJ: I, Lyndon Baines Johnson….

Sam Rayburn: Do solemnly swear….

LBJ: Do solemnly swear….

Sam Rayburn: That I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.

LBJ: I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Sam Rayburn: That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.

LBJ: That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.

Sam Rayburn: I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion

LBJ: I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation whatever

Sam Rayburn: And I will faithfully discharge the duties of the Office upon which I am about to enter so help me God.

LBJ: And I will faithfully discharge the duties of the Office in which I am about to enter so help me God.

==================

Back to Harry Reasoner

President Kennedy had decided at the outset of his Administration that Vice President Johnson was to be a working Vice President, not a ceremonial figurehead. One prime mission that Mr. Johnson undertook for the President was an around the world fact finding tour. A tour to sound out other chiefs of government and to access the wills of people in foreign lands.

In Germany Vice President Johnson went to the Berlin Wall.

And on the other side of the world a visit to Chiang Kai-shek

Leader of Nationalist China on Fermosa.

And then there was Mr. Johnson’s visit to the Vatican for a call on the late Pope John.

Late???

Was he late to show up or do they mean dead?

The Vatican outdid itself for the then Vice President’s visit. The meeting with the pope had all the appearances of a friendly formal visit. But all that went before and after the personal meeting with the pope was conducted with all the pomp and fanfare that one might expect for royalty.

President Kennedy had made his Vice President a member of the Committee on Government Contracts and at a meeting of Nation’s Industrialists attended by President Kennedy, Mr Johnson told them of their responsibilities as contractors for the government:

“…..all over the world but assuming he didn’t we demonstrated that Americans believe what they say in their Constitution and their Declaration of Independence and that uh no single American is black marked and hand cuffed and put over in a corner because of his religion.

And we demonstrated something else that I think equally important and maybe more so that you can elect a Vice President from the South regardless of his region.

Uh so we’ve made a good deal of headway in these fields and we think we are improving our system. And you are here as one of uh some 100 men who we look as the Titans, the leaders the the uh ones that have gone up the rung of the ladder, and we want other people to learn much from you by both precept and example. And we don’t want to do it with a pestle at your temple. And we don’t want to say,  ”We have the authority. Here’s the Executive Order. Cancel out the contract. Let ‘em send their lobbyists and their lawyers down here. We just a we don’t like the report we got, because we’re not operating that way. And the thing that pleases us, particularly today, is that a good many of you have no defense contract and you are going to be a showcase for America and in each of these 104 nations that constantly hear this propaganda every day:

that we only grow babies for breakfast.”

I have no idea what he is talking about.

===================================

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 50)

Walter Cronkite has interviewed most of the nations leaders. He has had long chats with General Eisenhower, with President Kennedy, and during the last campaign there was this interview with Mr. Johnson.

Walter Cronkite: Why would a man who loves these hills and has this magnificent ranch and this vista you got here on the river want to uh ever take the time out to fight these hard difficult battles in the distant remote Washington D.C.?

Johnson: Well uh Walter uh I think that we enjoy the time that we spend here but all of my life uh I have wanted to be a public servant as my father ahead of me was and I grew up uh wanting to help people with their problems and I get a satisfaction and a sense of achievement from uh constructive efforts on behalf of human beings that you can’t get in almost any other profession. Uh I will have been in Washington 30 years come next year and uh I think I would just be lost if uh I didn’t work uh in some public field. If I couldn’t be on public life I would want to be a teacher as I was before I entered the public life because uh I could have an influence on the minds of the young people and lead them in the directions I would like to see them go. I’ve often said that if I had a boy I’d want him to be either a politician or a preacher or a teacher because they would have a sense of achievement that comes uh uh from few other professions.

Walter Cronkite: Well now, it took you a little while to find this way of your life. Uh you here at the ranch uh you wanted to get away early in life you you went away as a laborer before uh your disappointed father succeeded in getting you back and into teacher’s college. Uh why did you want to leave in the first place?

Johnson: Well uh Walter I didn’t want to leave, it was more of a necessity. I i worked all of my life. As a little boy I shined shoes at the barber shop. I was a printer’s devil I ran off the weekly paper on Thursday afternoon the Old Washington Press, I inked it. Uh that’s one I

Walter Cronkite: That’s Washington Texas press.

Johnson: When I uh When I uh That’s the name of the press. Uh when I uh graduated from high school at 15 I wanted a job and there were not any jobs to be had around here in 1924. So I took the old philosopher’s advice Horace Greeley and went west, young man and worked two years in california in the Platt Building as an elevator boy in San Bernadino and finally wound up in the lawyer’s office.But I came back and mother talked me into going to college and during the period I was in college I taught a Latin American School down in South Texas and it gave me great satisfaction and I thought I wanted to be a teacher. So when I finished college I went to Houston taught a year and then the great opportunity of my life uh came to me when Congressman Clayburgh one of the owners of the King Ranch asked me to go to Washington as his Secretary in the Hoover Administration in 1931 and uh except for a brief period of 15 months I’ve been in Washington ever since:12 years in the House, 12 years in the Senate, 5 years there as the Secretary.

Walter Cronkite: Had you given any thought to a political career before that appointment to go to Washington?

Johnson: Yes uh I assumed ever since they first told me of Grandpa’s uh prediction uh I had an ambition to be a United States Senator and uh I took the steps that I felt were calculated to prepare me for that work to make it possible for me to be elected. I was first elected to Congress when I was 28 in 1937. In 1941 Senator Sheppard died and I ran to succeed him. I was defeated in a very close race by the then Governor of the State W. Lee O’Daniel. He defeated me in 1941 by 13  hundred and 11 votes out of more than a million. And then I waited until 1948 and when Governor he then Senator O’Daniel decided not to run I ran for that place and had a uh very close race but was elected in November and have been in the Senate (not sure of the  words but I think this is what he said) since that time.

Walter Cronkite: Well that loss to uh Senator W. Lee O’Daniel must have been a rather bitter one for you, your first major State race. Did you uh, what did you ascribe your loss to then?

Johnson: No it wasn’t bitter uh. I think that uh Governor O’Daniel is a very popular public figure at the time and I was a very young man and had uh was unknown uh though out the state. I represented the uh district in Central Texas and uh I I would ra ….I ran rather surprisingly well uh well the uh at that age and with the resources at my command.

Walter Cronkite: Your technique of leadership is considerably different. Uh Uh If I may I’d like to quote uh uh from a chap here who one observers quoted one of your Being won over Johnson is a rather overwhelming experience. The full treatment is incredibly potent mixture of persuaion, badgering, flattery, threats, reminders of past favors and future advantages. Well that’s a technique for leadership obviously. Uh How does this….

Johnson: I would say I would say that uh uh the fellow was more interested in his sentence structure than he was accuracy. Grins

Walter Cronkite: Laughs

Johnson: Uh uh you don’t deal with Senators really that way uh I think the only thing uh that uh that is calculated to appeal to members of the Senate is a presentation of the facts and the soundness of your logic. Uh nearly every Senator that uh takes the oath of office is uh is elected on a platform of doing what’s right and uh your problem as leader is to convince him that uh the cause you represent is the right cause. Now uh uh there’s not any favors you can do for a Senator that you remind him of uh there’s no cajolery or flattery involved uh uh that doesn’t appeal to a man that’s capable and worthy of representing one of the great states in the Union. Uh they’re not school boys. Even though some of these fellows that uh write these things sometimes uh uh  make them sound uh that way. Uh I would say that uh I try to follow the old prophet Isaiah’s advice “Come let us reason together.” And uh that course of action uh always appeals to reasonable men.

I don’t want to sound unreasonable, but right after he said ‘reasonable men’ he licked,

which he rarely does in this interview.

I find this kind of odd… the timing, that is.

And most Senators are reasonable uh uh Republicans sometimes uh a little more difficult for us Democrats to reason with then the members of our own party but uh all of ‘em are patriotic uh uh uh members of the Senate and they want to do what’s best for their country. And uh once they’re convinced that the cost …the course of action that you present is for the best interest of America uh you’ll usually have a lopsided vote in your favor.

 Walter Cronkite: Senator uh since you were a protege in a sense of uh Franklin Delanor Roosevelt in in those early days of the New Deal with your NYA Administration here uh you were identified with the more liberal element of the Democratic Party in those days and I think in recent years the identification has been more toward the conservative side. Is is this uh the kind of the normal development of a man do you feel toward the liberal to the conservative and is this a tendency that’s likely to continue in your own life, do you feel or?

Johnson: Well, I presume that we all become a little more prudent uh as we uh grow older although I’ve never been much of a believer in uh labels. I’m a great admirer of President Roosevelt’s now just as I was then. Uh he hasn’t changed uh uh in my viewpoint any and uh as I engage in a little introspection I haven’t changed much. Uh uh my philosophy is that I’m a free man first and uh an American second, United States Senator third, and a Democrat fourth. In that order. Now, I’m a member of the Democratic Party because I think that uh through the vehicle of that party I can best uh see my philosophy translated into action. I believe my party cares more uh about the problems uh of the people of this country and is more concerned with helping them with their problems than the Republican Party and for that reason I’m a Democrat. But uh uh Im uh a free man and American and a Senator first.

Walter Cronkite: Senator uh uh

Johnson: I don’t go in much for the labels of the liberal and conservative. Uh I think you can be a progressive uh Senator and still be a prudent Senator. I don’t think you have to be a wastrel. I think we’ve demonstrated that in the Democratic Party by cutting 12 and half billion dollars uh from the President’s budget request. I think you can be a Conservative uh Senator without being a reactionary Senator/ Uh but labels don’t mean much to me what I’m interested in is is this peice of legislation or is this uh project or is this program good for my country? Is it the right thing to do? And if it’s good for my country, it’s good for my party, and consequently good for me.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 51)

Walter Cronkite: Senator Uh uh the darkest day I guess in your uh in your life came in 1955 when you had the heart attack, which we all know about. But I’m wondering how that uh experience affected your philosophy. I know that there are some who we in our researchers have talked to and they in the Senate to uh said that t before that they sort of thought you were a brash young politician but after that they thought you became the politician’s politician. That this was a turning point in a way. Do you feel that yourself at all?

Johnson: No, I don’ t think it had any uh uhappreciable affect on the course of my conduct at all. I think during the period of 60 days when I was uh uh away from the Senate Chamber that uh I had time to reflect and uh really appreciate all the good people that I had known and uh how unworthy perhaps I had been of their devotion and their friendship. Uh, I know that uh I never really recognized the fact that uh uh the Senators could be as good men as they demonstrated to me they were. Uh, I remember Senator Nowlin wrote me nearly everyday that I was in the hospital and I had communications from every member of the Senate except one. A good many of ‘em came to see me nearly everyday and uh it was their interest and in their prayers I think that sustained me during that period uh when I was somewhat distressed. But uh after the initial two months and I came back here to the ranch I haven’t observed that it’s affected my conduct of public business uh at all. As a matter of fact, I am sometimes amused when I think of the letter I received from President Eisenhower uh telling me that he had read in the papers of my activity and he thought I was uh uh going to work a little too fast and he hoped I’d slow down. And that letter was went to me without a signature by General Person. General Person said that it was the last letter dictated by the President the night before he had his heart attack and he was lecturing me on slowing down a little bit to just before he had his.

===========================

Tonight Lyndon Johnson is the new President. Our Correspondent at the White House George Herman has a report on the new occupant:

President Lyndon Baines Johnson like the man he succeeds is above all a political pragmatist.As the Leader of the United States Senate he often told us that he always counted the votes he thought he could muster before leading his party into a fight. He thought wasting his parties energy on a fight he could not win was not only wasteful but foolish and Senator Lyndon Johnson was wise, efficient, and able. He led all the many voices inside his party speak on every issue. He squelched no shade of opinion, but still the Senate under his leadership moved ahead steadily and with dispatch. President Johnson is not the lightning fast reader and talker as his predecessor was. He likes to talk slowly likes to slip in anecdotes and to make sure that his meaning is fully taken on any one subject before he moves onto another. President Johnson has a considerable streak of toughness in him and surprisingly to most liberal Democrats at least he has along liberal record behind him. He came to Congress in 1937 as a very strong supporter of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. So strong and so vocal in fact that President Roosevelt brought the young Congressman to Washington aboard the Presidential yacht. He served as a Federal Youth Official in Texas. A Negro college President in that state has long since revealed that Lyndon Johnson kept their colleges going during the Great Depression by channeling federal funds in their direction. Unlike former President Truman President Johnson has not only been kept on the inside of the secrets of the Kennedy Administration he has also been sent as a spokesman around the world and has gotten a good taste of world problems and more important perhaps the way other nations view the United States and Washington. The big question of course in any sudden change of Presidents at mid administration (I think this is what he said, but not sure) is which of the members of the organization which President Kennedy so painstakingly built up President Johnson is going to feel comfortable with. He will of course review the entire administration man by man and in time the shape of his own new administration will begin to show. One historical and inescapable fact must always be born in mind the Presidency is an office of great weight. It has enormous momentum. And as every President since Franklin D. Roosevelt has discovered the office tends to mold and shape the man to a form that few of his friends would have guessed at beforehand. Tomorrow Lyndon Baines Johnson will sit at the desk of the President of the United States and the molding shaping process on our new President and his government will begin. This is George Herman at the White House now back to Harry Reasoner:

===================

We understand that Adlai Stevenson has just made a statement at the White House and we’re going to switch there

now for that statement by videotape.

The tragedy of this day is is beyond any instant comprehension. All of us knew him (licks) will bear the grief of his death until the day of ours and all men everywhere who love justice

Someone says: Louder?

and freedom and peace will bow their heads. At such a moment one can only turn to prayer

Someone says: Well we can’t move. What?

Prayer to comfort our grief to sustain Mrs. Kennedy and  his family and to strengthen President Johnson and to guide us in time to come. May God help us all.

========================

A lot of things are being said and wondered about the new President tonight but only he can know what it is to be called upon suddenly to take on the burdens of that office. The weight of grief of concern were apparent as President Johnson returned to Washington this evening.

This 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 that I can do. I ask for your help and Gods.

I don’t really know if it is possible but I heard him sayhumans so I went back to hear it again and he said again the word humans and then when I went back again to be sure that I heard correctly then in its place he said people all within a minute or so while transcribing this just now. Hmmm:)

=======================

As the new President is being studied by the world the late President is being mourned. Throughout the country there will be services of grief and tribute. Tonight in Los Angeles a Memorial Mass is held for John F. Kennedy. Our reporter is Charles Coralt:

Kids singing a hymn.

This is Charles Coralt 

(whispering in some dark corner)

at the Our Lady Chapel in South Street in Los Angeles. Our father John Sheridan is officiating at a solemn Requiem Mass for the late President Kennedy:

I guess a hymn where they sing back and forth between the guy in a wrap/cape and the kids
in another language…probably spanish maybe latin, not sure cause they are singing it.
 
 Ask Almighty God in his mercy in the words of another martyred President.
Ask him to give us the strength to rededicate ourselves to a new
birth of freedom and family virtue.
The gover-ment of the people
and buy the people and for the people
shall not parish from the earth.
(He says severely.)
Um I  think he misquoted the bible, but Whatever.

Hurry get this guy some blood he looks very very thirsty! You should hear his voice like Boris Karloff. 
Maybe the actors in Hollywood are broke and are desperately trying to get work? I think something else is occurring and has been occurring to these actors that we were not aware of and if I knew what that was I would tell ya, but I’m only human.
This has been a high requiem mass from Our lady’s Chapel on South Flora Street in Los Angeles.
Several hundred people will have come to this chapel during the day to join millions of other Americans of
Whatever Faith in praying for the late President and his family.
This is Charles Coralt in Los Angeles we return you now to our CBS News Headquarters in New York :
Do they test these guys? He looks out of his mind. Really. 
 =====================================
 As this day draws to a close here is a brief summary of its events past and to follow: Upon todays assassination of President Kennedy Lyndon B. Johnson became the new President of the United States. The body of President Kennedy will Lie-in-Repose in the East Room of the White House all day tomorrow Saturday. On Sunday a cortege will move the late President to the Rotunda of the Capitol where he will Lie-in-State on Sunday afternoon and on Monday. the White House announced that former Presidents Eisenhower and Truman will go to Washington this weekend to join the nation in it’s official mourning. On Monday at noon, Boston’s Richard Cardinal Cushing a close friend of the Kennedy family will officiate at a pontifical requiem mass in Washington St. Matthew’s Cathedral.
Throughout this weekend President Johnson will be briefed by the men who are now his Presidential advisors as those Cabinet and government officials return to their posts in the Capitol.
In Dallas the business of bringing the assassin to justice continues. Police say they have a prime suspect in 24 year old Lee Harvey Oswald a pro Castro Marxist who once defected to Russian then returned to this country claiming disillusionment with the Soviet System. For the moment Oswald has been charged with the murder of a Dallas policeman killed on a street near the assassination scene and Dallas police say there will be no further announcement tonight on their inquiry.
Texas Governor John Connally the second victim of the shooting is reported in satisfactory condition at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. He is expected to recover.
The CBS Television Network will broadcast no commercial messages nor entertainment programming until after the burial of President Kennedy probably on Tuesday in Boston Massachussetts. CBS News will return on the network tomorrow and throughout the weekend to continue to report on the latest developments as President Johnson assumes his new duties and responsibilities. Our report from CBS News Headquarters will resume at 8:00 o’clock tomorrow morning Eastern Time. This is Harry Reasoner. Good Night.
This was a CBS News Special Report
This is the CBS Television Network
End
Harry looks a bit miffed too. An odd finale for the day. I really do think he is upset as I watched him in the earlier parts of this series. I am upset too. And it is upsetting to see other people upset and in a bad predicament. I think he has done a great job at his post. Probably the best he can do under the circumstances.

CBS News and JFK (A Lot of Lickin’ Goin’ On) Parts 59-60

Day of Mourning for JFK,

Oswald’s assassination,

Henry Wade,

and Charles Collingwood

Parts 59-60

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 59)

The city of Dallas which uh in the last 48 hours has seen the assassination of President Kennedy and then today the murder of the man who uh was accused by Dallas Police of of uh carrying out that assassination Lee Harvey Oswald. Is a city racked this afternoon apparently with telephoned threats against various figures in the uh situation down there. (licks o:39/10:26)

Whether these are crank threats or not, of course, uh police have no way of knowing. There was one just a short while ago to the home of Mayor Cabell of Dallas who was en route to Dallas airport to take a plane to a new to Washington for the funeral services along with Judge Sara Hughes to administer the Oath of Office uh to President Lyndon Johnson uh 99 minutes after President Kennedy’s death on Friday.

Strange sentence and does not make any sense because the oath of office occurred on a plane to Washington a few days earlier.

Something is definitely amiss in that sentence!

That uh call uh that telephone anonymous threat to the home of Mayor Cabell resulted in extra police precautions at Dallas airport where they held up the flight to offload all of the luggage to check it against any possibility of a bomb being placed aboard.

There also is a telephone threat to a lawyer who had defended Jack Rubenstein the man accused of the murder of Lee Oswald. The threat uh telephoned to his home after the attorney had appeared on television to say that he would defend uh uh Ruby or Rubenstein uh if he was asked to be his attorney. This threat said that if uh he did defend Rubenstein he would be next as the threat went. All anonymous telephone calls and there is no particularly any significance as yet uh being placed on that.

We reported earlier that the Homicide Chief Captain Will Fritz of the Dallas Police Department feels that the case is closed with the death of Lee Harvey Oswald. He has said all along that the evidence against Oswald was conclusive and final and that he had no accomplices although he acknowledges that Oswald did not say anything either during interrogation or in the hour and 15 minutes he lived after the bullet was uh sent into his body in the basement of the Dallas Police Station as he was trying to be, as they were trying to take him from the City Jail to the uh County Jail. And of course the uh US Secret Service and the FBI has not been heard from yet uh what as to whether they would consider the case closed and as far as we know their investigation is continuing and as a matter of fact Captain Fritz says that they will continue to dig up evidence against Oswald, and in that sense the case is not closed.

Testimony Of J. W. Fritz

Will Fritz is the man leading the men holding Oswald when the shot was fired  who opens his arms, but just stands there dumbfounded (but of course I don’t know him and possibly he did not hear the shot and may have been stunned by the honk of the car and he is old so might be naturally slow to react and he was in front of Oswald and may not have been visually aware and possibly he may be hearing impaired. ) He does act guilty in my opinion in the film in the garage. However, I did read his testimony and found him to be believable whether or not he was truthful. But someone by the name of Ball interviewed him. If it was George Wildman Ball, then I am suspicious of the interview itself. And in Part 5 of this series in the second picture of that post when Oswald is walking down the hallway to go into an office with people crowding around the hallway at the City jail in Dallas is a man that looks like George Wildman Ball who is a diplomat and the 7th ambassador to the UN in a cowboy hat. Why would he be in the hallway in Dallas with Oswald when he was supposed to be manning the State Department in Washington DC for the protection of the many dignitaries that showed up to the funeral of JFK? 

Will Fritz : Biography

On 22nd November, 1963, Fritz was on duty at the Trade Mart when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. He then went to Dealey Plaza and was with Seymour WeitzmanRoger Craig, Eugene Boone and Luke Mooney when the rifle was found on the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository.

==========================

This is a CBS News Special Report

One Sunday In November

It is ten o’clock at night now in Washington DC and still the long line of people waiting to pass by the body of the dead President winds like a dark river up the great steps outside the Rotunda of the Capitol.

They are still filing slowly through the Rotunda now ask the flag draped casket which rests on the same cata that held the body of Abraham Lincoln almost a hundred years ago. They will probably continue to file past all night long until tomorrow when the body of President Kennedy begins its last journey to a grave among the nations heroes at Arlington National Cemetary.

 This is Charles Collingwood.

This day of sorrow began in mourning and solemn ceremony for a martyred President, but before it was over the mood had been jarred by one more moment of grisly melodrama. Lee Harvey Oswald the accused assassin of President Kennedy was himself murdered in Dallas, Texas. He was shot in full view of the television cameras as millions caught up in the national tragedy were watching the funeral cortege prepared to leave the White House for the Capitol.

The ceremonies in Washington were echoed throughout the nation and the world today as people of every religion and from every walk of life gathered in churches and public places to  mourn President Kennedy.

In President’s home city of Boston

Cardinal Cushing celebrated a solemn mass of requiem.

Cardinal Cushing says somethings in Latin which I can’t translate.

No telling what he is invoking, or who.

Shortly after noon today while many of this country were still in church the cortege began to form outside the White House to carry the body of President Kennedy in funeral procession to the Capitol there to Lie-In-State.

At this moment in Dallas, Texas a procession of another kind was being formed to transfer Lee Harvey Oswald the accused assassin to another jail. Extraordinary precautions were taken there to ensure his safety, but newsmen and cameras were on hand eager for any glimpse of the accused man. As television viewers watched this scene at the White House proceeding according to the order and protocol prescribed for such occasions,

something happened in Dallas and the scene suddenly switched.

Obviously, this segment by Charles Collingwood is not

“As it happened”

but a synopsis of the events back then:

This film also shows the armored truck blocking the driveway of the City Jail and then it had to be moved in order for the ambulance to leave the City Jail with Oswald. So how did the ambulance get in if the Armored truck was blocking the driveway. Oh well.

Can’t say for sure but looks to me like the

Armored truck was used to facilitate this event.

A private remedy,

if,

in fact, it is real.

For Pete’s sake Tommy Lee Jones is a policeman in this scene.

He’s an actor!

Are we living in two different parallel worlds?

Makes you wonder or me anyway who is controlling who.

Rome? The Vatican? Washington? London? Dallas?

Paris?

Hollywood? Berlin?

I don’t think anyone really knows and everyone was and is grappling to be on top

symbolically, monetarily, militarily, spiritually etc

I read one of Tommy Lee Joneses biographies on line and not one of the bios about him mention anything about JFK, Jack Ruby, Oswald, or that he was a policeman. Was that policeman a double?

Or has his memory been erased?

Which is weird because he is starring in a sequel of the movie

titled Men in Black about that very same theme. 

Tommy Lee Jones did attend High School in Dallas at St. Mark’s in Highland Park/University Park area of Dallas near the Methodist Church where Dr. Dickinson presided. Dr. Dickinson led the Benediction and prayer at The Dallas Trade Center where JFK was going to give his speech,

but was assassinated minutes before in downtown Dallas.

Dr. Dickinson also blamed everyone in the audience for the death of JFK,

just as Jackie blamed “them” for JFK’s death

even though it appears that she pulled the trigger.

Also Dr. Dickinson acted in charge of  Secret Service and policemen investigation

at the School Book Depository.

When Jackie and President Kennedy were at the breakfast in Ft. Worth before they came to Dallas Jackie licks at some flowers on the table in front of her. I think in those flowers are the flowers called Devil’s Breath. It is used in the making of an anecdote for sea sickness, (something Onassis would know about being a shipping tycoon) but also if used incorrectly can make people controllable like a machine and not remember anything. In the post linked below are snapshots and the video of her flower fetish. It might explain a lot of bad behavior from many people and possibly might explain the excessive licking.

Perhaps that is symptom of that drug.

Perhaps it can be used in little biscuits to control parishioners.

Maybe that is what the tongue Cues are all about.

There sure are a lot of them.

Here is a post called:

Rev. David Wilkerson and Evangelicalism

In any case I think

This is a sick religious conspiracy.

The press and many of the interviewees and Jackie seem to lick a lot at certain moments which I have tried to show in this series throughout and it definitely has some kind of meaning.

Does it have to do with Slick Willie/Clinton?

Speaking in tongues?

Billy Graham seems to be ensconsed in this whole event

and events before and afterwards

befriending everyone involved in

one way or another and quite a few were erased or assassinated!

Not much of a friend ….is he?

============================

Back to Charles Collingwood and the scene in Dallas and I guess I will go through it again.

Car honks and someone yells: Here he is.

Car honks again and someone yells: Here he is.

Then Oswald is shot.

Newsman casually remarks: This is the basement floor of the Dallas City Hall and thats a scuffle on the basement floor it seems to….. cannot understand the few last words he says.

Then a voice that sounds like Tommy Lee Jones says: has been shot, Oswald has been shot.

Newsman casually reporting:  Lee Oswald. We’re going to…

Now it sounds like John Cusak with curly hair: Oswald has been shot.

Newsman casually reporting: switch now

Sounds like John Cusak with curly hair again: Police

Screen goes black and returns to the scene with a bunch of newsmen or actors crowding in front of camera:

Man that looks like John Cusak with curly hair: The situation is now that Lee Harold Oswald has been shot. The man who saw the shot fired said it was fired by a man wearing a black hat, a brown coat. A man that everyone down here thought was a Secret Service Agent.

Someone else says: Oswald came out

Man that looks like John Cusak with curly hair says: The Oswald was moved immediately from the area. No one knows at this time where Lee Harold Oswald is at the present time word is that an ambulance is being ready to take Oswald away. We can hear sirens outside and an ambulance apparently is….

Screen goes black. Screen reaapears again.

Man that looks like John Cusak with curly hair says: Moving down here to the basement. Here comes the ambulance.

everyone scrambles about

Man that looks like John Cusak with curly hair says: and uh Oswald will be removed now. the ambulance is being pulled up in front of us here

Someone else says:…unbelievable

Someone else says: Stand back!

Man that sounds like the man that looks like John Cusak with curly hair says: Here someone has

Someone else says: Stand back !

Someone says: Lee Get back! (Are they talking to Tommy Lee Jones?)

Someone else says: Back

Someone says: All right. Come on.

Someone else says:  Okay. Just get low. Okay. Okay. Okay.

Man that sounds like the man that looks like John Cusak with curly hair says:  Pat, can you move? Okay, Pat move just a little to your left.

I think so that the camera can get a view of Oswald and the gurney.

Someone says: We can see now that police are cordoning off newsmen from the basement in Dallas City Hall so that uh Lee Oswald can be taken to an ambulance that was just brought into the basement of the City Hall.

We’re switching now to Bob Hoffhacker downstairs.

By the way the man that sounds like the man that looks like John Cusak with curly hair is called Bob Hoffhacker and Lee (I think):)

Oswald will be moved quickly outside. The only word so far is that the shot came from a man wearing a black hat and a coat.

Here comes Oswald:

He’s, he is ashen and unconscious at this time now being moved in. He’s not moving. He’s in the ambulance now. An attendant, police are quickly climbing in.

 They are now having to remove the armored truck.

Why? Because it was blocking the entrance I think.

Someone else  from upstairs says: This is the armored truck on the outside of the Dallas Police Department. It’s being moved out on to Commerce Street and now the ambulance has coming out. The ambulance with Lee Harvey Oswald who was shot just a few minutes ago as he was being transferred to the from was planning to be transferred from the City Jail to the uh County Court House.

========================

Back to Charles Collingwood recounting the same event:

In the basement of the Court House policemen, reporters, and cameramen were waiting for Oswald to come down an elevator there to the right to be transferred to another jail. A man named Ruby was waiting, too.

The scene began with the familiar routine of news coverage of public events, the officers come down.

There goes Ruby toward Oswald, he’s firing. Oswald slumps to the floor and as he does the police officers beside him leap upon Ruby as we now know him to be after the confusion had sorted itself out throw him to the ground then they take him and take him away from this basement and take him upstairs to a cell to be questioned.

Meanwhile if you look toward the left of the picture underneath the headlight you will see the body of Oswald still lying there. Now they’re beginning to pay attention to the man who was killed by that assassins’s bullet. Oswald still lying on the floor as the police officers now move in to take away the murderer and to give some kind of attention to Oswald lying there mortally wounded on the floor.

News is rather-like brainwashing in a way. If you repeat something over and over and over again they say that soon you will believe it.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 60)

Dan Rather:

Just a few moments ago the District Attorney of Dallas County Henry Wade came out at Dallas Police Headquarters to give what he said was every shred of information, all evidence that he knew that he that Dallas Police had gathered since lee Oswald the man accused of killing the President. So now we bring you that report of the Dallas County District Attorney what he says is his full report on the evidence against Lee Oswald.

 The purpose of this News Conference is to detail some of the evidence against Oswald

for the assassination of the President. (licks)

first lick

This evidence was gathered by largely the Dallas Police who did an excellent job on this with the help of some Federal agencies. And I’m going through the evidence piece by piece uh for you. Number one: Some of this you will already know some of it you won’t. I don’t think. (licks again.)

 uhhh. As a…. As all of you do know first there was a ….we have a number of witnesses that saw the person with the gun on the sixth floor of book store building the window detailing the window where he was looking out. Inside this winda the police found a row of books, cases, boxes hiding someone sitting in the winda from people on the same floor lookin’ in. Uh, on the window was some boxes where in the little circle around the window by the book cases some boxes were where apparently, where the person was sitting because he was seen from that particular window. (licks again) On this box that the ‘fendant ( ? ) was sitting on his palm print was found and was identified as his. (HUGE LICK)

The three ejected shells

were found right by the box. The shells were of an odd caliber of the type and later determined were of the gun that was found on the floor. (licks again) 

The gun was hidden on this same floor behind some boxes uh and uh some book cases. (licks again) It has I think you know have has been identified as having been purchased last March by the Oswald from a mail order house (licks again) by an through uh through an assumed named name Hydale (Hydell/Hidell ?) mailed to a post office box here in Dallas. (licks again—–>) 

On his person was a pocket book. In his pocket book was identification card with the same name and post office box on it. Pictures were found by the defendant with this gun and pistol on in his holster. (BIG LICK) 

 Ammediately

that morning

that is an unusual,

but that morning a neighbor brought

the Oswald

from Irving, Texas.

(licks again)

=========

 Kind of a weird reference to Lee Oswald as if he is not human calling him

“The Oswald”

more like an object, a weapon, a patsy and an ant.

(to tidy things up, so to speak.)

Like the feet of them

in the Book of Acts that whisked Ananias and Sapphira away.

A VERY PRIDEFUL EVENT IN CHRISTIANITY !

=========

He usually brought him on Monday morning I think but this day he went home one day early on Thursday night the and came back (HUGE LICK AGAIN)

uh to uh with this fella when he came back he had a package under his arm uh that he said was winda curtains, I believe, or window shades. Uh the wife said he had the gun the night before. It was missing that morning after he left. He got out around 8:00 o’clock and went to the building (licks again) behind some cars and went to work.

A police officer immediately after the uh assassination (licks again) ran in the building and saw this man in a corner and started to arrest him, but the manager of the building said he was an employee and was alright. Every other employee was located, but this defendant (?) of the company. (licks again) 

A description and name of him went out by police to look for him. The next we hear of him is on a bus where he got on a bus at Lamar Street, told the bus driver the President had been shot. (licks again.) the president, told the lady all this is verified statements that told the lady on the bus that uh the President h’d been shot and said how’d he know and he says the man back there told him went back to talk to him. The defendant (?) said yes he’s been shot and laughed very loud. (Big lick) Uh….

 Someone asks: To a lady?

A lady. He then the bus. He asked the bus driver to stop got off at a stop caught a taxi cab driver.

 Someone asks: where?

In Oak Cliff. Uhh I don’t have the exact place and went to his home in Oak Cliff. Changed his clothes hurriedly and left. As he left uhhh three witnesses saw a police officer, Officer Tippit. Motioned to him or say something to him. He walked up to the car. Officer Tippit stepped out of the car and started around it. He shot him three times and killed him (Huge Lick) with

Someone asks: In front of the boarding house?

No. It’s not in front of the boarding house!


Someone asks: (I think they ask) Where is it?

  I don’t have the exact, it’s more than a block. It’s a block or two. (Licks)

Someone asks: Was he on foot when Tippit saw him?

Yes, he was on foot and apparently headed to the Texas Theater

He then walked across a vacant lot.    

Witnesses saw him eject the shells from the revolver (licks again)

and place… reload the gun.

Someone saw him go in the Texas theater. A search was made of that later by a number of police 

officers at the time (licks again)

 An officer of the Dallas Police ……him and asked him to come out. Uh he struck at the officer. Put the gun against his head and snapped it, but did not uh but the bullet did not go off.

We have the snapped bullet there. (licks again)

 Officer, Officers obtued/optued him (Is that a word?) at that time. 

(Oh I think he meant subdued or obtained him. I guess he was combining words)

Someone asks a question I do not understand.

Henry Wade answers:….back there; Against the officer’s head.

Someone asks: Do you know why the gun didn’t go off? 

Someone else asks for the officer’s name.

Henry Wade answers: MacDonald was his name. It snapped, it was a misfire. Uh.. (licks again) Then uh officers subdued him some …..officers subdued him there in the theater and he was brought to the Police Station here. It missed the firing pin on the pull on the … The shell didn’t explode. It… they have it where it hit it, but didn’t explode. 

A bunch of muffled questions by reporters. 

Henry Wade answers: It didn’t fire the shell.

 Someone says: 

Henry Wade answers:  There was one officer who said that he pulled the trigger, but he managed to put his thumb in the in the uh in the… 

Someone else says:

 before the firing pin and it didn’t make the ………..

It appears to me

that there is a lot of licking going on

and prompting by the press

and rehabilitation by the press

to add credibility to this press conference which is obviously

incredible.

Back to Dan Rather:

That was the District Attorney of Dallas County Henry Wade giving reporters all of the information revealing all of the evidence he said that Dallas Police have on the late Lee Oswald.

A short question and answer period uh followed what you just saw there, but that was the meat of what the Dallas District Attorney had to say.

Oswald of course was gunned down in Dallas this morning in the basement of the City Jail and Police Station Building. We now will show you the film of Oswald being shot in the basement still framed.

Watch the hat in the right hand corner of the frame.

Watch Oswald’s eyes as they seem to catch the eye of the assassin. His head turns. He looks at the assassin and his eyes never leave him.

Which is ridiculous because the film shows a man’s head in front of the camera so how would anyone know that his eyes never left him, because as soon as you see Oswald again he is looking forward again. I imagine when Oswald turned his head was when the epithet was screamed at him not included in the film.

But I digress because this is probably an act anyway.

The assassin moves in. The assassin with the pistol just a few inches from Oswald’s abdomen, fires a shot, Oswald grimaces, falls to the floor in pain.

Yet this film doesn’t display that portion of this act.

Police officers immediately grab the assassin identified as Jack Rubenstein and hustle him back off into the building. Just after that Lee Oswald died in Parkland Hospital. He died almost the same time of day shortly after one o’clock and in the same hospital that President Kennedy died in on Friday afternoon. It was that kind of day in grim solemn and shamed Dallas today.

(Sticks out his Tongue)

This is Dan Rather in Dallas Texas.

Back to Charles Collingwood:

It is a bizarre story

This strange interplay of faith

which somehow interlocked the destinies of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Lee Oswald, and Jack Ruby.

But what Jack Ruby did has not solved the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

As far as the FBI is concerned it hasn’t closed the case. A spokesman tonight said that while there is very strong evidence some of which we heard from District Attorney Wade that Oswald was the killer the FBI is continuing its investigation. As you know Oswald maintained his innocence his his innocence until the last.

The Chief of the Homicide division of the Dallas Police Department says He does not con…..Wow that was a bad edit or a tongue twister  in 3 syllables although he does consider the assassination a closed case he added that his force too will continue searching for information. (licks)

Why does Charles Collingwood think this is a

strange interplay of faith?

Does he know something others at that time did not know?

Or did the press know and participated

and just failed to tell the American people

that the assassination of JFK,

and the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby 

was a religious conspiracy!

(If it really happened…..that is.)

Not once do the CBS reporters in this you tube compilation

refer to faith as the reason for this treason

until now.

It is obvious that Billy Graham knew, and Cardinal Cushing knew,

Rev. Wilkerson knew, Dr. Dickenson knew,

and the participants in Vatican ll knew.

Did our government know? 

Charles Collingwood knew.

Why didn’t he say so from the get go?

Did JFK know?
