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?

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 Adamant Machine) Parts 16-18

Possession of People’s Minds

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 16) 

In 1955, when Mr. Johnson was making a Sunday visit to the Farm of George McGeeHee another Texan, our UN? ambassador. That was near Washington. Johnson was hit rather (Eric Severeid adjusts his seat) hard with a heart attack  He thought at first it was only acute indigestion. Uh, Senator Clinton Anderson of New Mexico was there at the time for this luncheon and he said, at once, (Erik Severeid clears his throat)

 “You have had a heart attack.”

Johnson was taken to a hospital and he slowly recovered. For sometime after that, uh, his strength was considerably diminished. I remember  him telling reporters once that on Monday morning he said I’m full of energy, by Wednesday night I’m tired out. But all that changed, his full strength came back and in recent years he has demonstrated his old energies, and they’re great energies, in the daily whirl of activities including a good many trips around this country and abroad. He is now personally acquainted with all the world leaders that the President was acquainted with including Mr. Kruschev. And his grasp of domestic politics, of course, is quite profound at the general and intellectual level as well as the practical working level of the total human machinery that makes our rather cumbered system work.

His fierce fight against Kennedy for the nomination in 1960 now seems only yesterday to most of us. His great prestige in Washington itself was not, at that time, matched by, uh, his prestige and his fame in the country at large. This was a great struggle right down to those final hours in the convention. And then Mr. Kennedy chose Johnson to be his running mate partly because he had to have the south and Johnson was regarded as the one man who could conciliate the southern conservatives. And this he did. And there were some who said later that Mr. Kennedy really owed his election to Lyndon Johnson. In any case, Johnson has never shown any, uh, jealousy what so ever, any kind of bitterness. He became the President’s lieutenant in full fidelity in private, as well as, in public. But as Vice Presidents do, certainly under a very energetic and active President, he slowly faded from national consciousness. And when the President died today he and Mr. Kennedy were in uh the President and uh the Vice President were engaged behind the scenes in Texas in trying to settle a rather fierce feud within the Texas Democratic Party between the Johnson-Connally uh forces and the Liberal Groups led by Senator Ralph Yarborough. All that, of course now, seems petty and of no consequence. In retrospect, it doesn’t matter. Mr. Johnson is the President and Texas will be his personal political base in toto. (licks 2:41/10:51)

And when the sorrows today begins to fade, when the President has been laid to rest, the machinery of the National Government will take up again. And again Americans will have to think ahead not only to what lines of policy and action the new President will follow but, of course, also to the election of next year. Mr. Johnson will be the nominated next August at the Democratic Convention if he wishes it, and I’m sure most observers would predict now that he will wish it. All estimations on the outcome of that election next November, of course, are now rather without meaning. Election, like the course this great country itself, now lies with fate in the continuing nature of our times and in our world.

And now back to Walter to you.

————-

Conversation between Eric and Walter which is very illuminating

and kind of funny when you watch it:

Um, all right. That matter that you’ve suggested a little earlier on this afternoon of the danger of a violent reaction to the right wing in America assessing very probably improperly the assassination as being the resp the responsibility resting there already is beginning to come to light. Uh, you saw perhaps, uh maybe you were busy

Erik Severeid No, I missed that.  I missed that Walter.

Walter Cronkite -Uh, well the some interviews in the streets of New York and two or three people were laying the blame right there.

Erik Severeid – Well, it’s much too early for that sort of thing. ICK 

Walter CronkiteOh, of course it is. The Soviet Union, however, is doing that. Tass has announced that extreme right wing elements were undoubtedly to blame.

Erik Severeid This will be tragic if uh anything of this sort either takes possession of people’s minds

if there is,

if there’s any truth in it.  ICK

Walter Cronkite – All right.

———–—————————————–

We now have some new film in at our Washington Bureau so lets switch back to Washington now and Neil Strausser:

Washington, Walter, is still in the state of shock except for those departments responsible for seeing to this smooth transition of the Presidency from Mr. Kennedy to Mr. Johnson. Almost no work is being done. Most Federal and District of Columbia workers are being sent home an hour early.

On Capitol Hill almost all of the comments contain the words tragic loss, disasterous.

First word of the shooting was carried to the Senate floor by Richard Rydell, a Press Liason aide, whose job it is to watch the tickers in the Senate Cloakroom and keep Senators up to date on world happenings.

Rydell tells of his fateful mission:

4:57/10:51-8:40/10:51

 

 Well, uh, the routine, the tickers in the lobby, AP and UP tickers, are read by Senators and Staff Members for routine information. Ah Phyllis Rock of the Staff of Senator Morris of Oregon was in the lobby by herself reading the ticker. Uh, she turned to one of my assistants, Tom Pelican is with Senator Long of Missoura and his office part of the time and said the President has been shot. Tom rushed out to tell me. I immediately went into the Senate Chamber to the, over to the, in front of the desk of, of uh Majority Leader Senator Mike Mansfield. Raised my voice so that he and the Senators, the surrounding desks, could hear and said

 Senators, the President has been shot.

It, of course, was like a shock wave, a jolt. I crossed the aisle to the Republican side where…..

garbled  6:11/10:51 glitch but sounds like

ANKH

whether inserted in  for what ever reason

I don’t know, but it is in this recording!

Ankh is egyptian and so is Amen-ra/re the common ending of prayers by most Christians. Amen is an Egyptian god. I’m sure the addition was added into the gospels by Amen’s followers either through deception on their part or because of their being deceived, nevertheless it’s wrong! Until people wake up to the machinery it will continue to cap the population with its power to deceive, ruling over us – all the while claiming that we are liberated, as it kills us inside and out.

I think “The machinery” is why President Kennedy was assassinated and “the machinery” is what JFK was going to speak about and had already warned about in an earlier speech. However, I cannot find a visual tape of him making that speech, which I find to be odd and that is why I think that was what he planned to say at the Trade Mart in Dallas. Possibly, he was going to shed light on who was “the machinery” at the Trade Mart luncheon in Dallas, but instead was hi-jacked beforehand, and it seems to be his own friends and those he was trying to help that are involved, even his family. The deception is so steep and ingrained into their hearts ……they blindly follow in myriads of ways, the wrong ways.

What is worse and hard to understand is the deception of and by the Clergy……the Chief priests and the Legion who should know better and I think many do know better, but they do it anyway to yours, mine, our loved ones destruction.

They obviously are masters of deception and disguise!

Please read: 

Chief Priests and the Legion – Revised

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

back to the transcript:


Dirkson 
was seated and in the same manner told Senator Dirkson and the Republican Senators who were at adjacent desks. I would, of course, the same shock reaction and stunned uh expressions on their faces.

I then happen to recall at a few moments before the Presidents brother uh, Senator uh Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, was presiding over the Senate. I turned and he was still occupying the chair. I knew that someone would have to inform him and I thought I might as well. It was a very difficult, very difficult job, because of the family relationship, as well as, the friendship of the Senators to the President.

I rushed up to the chair and said Senator, Senator Kennedy your brother the President has been shot. He gave a a jerk, his body, his body tensed, but he was absolutely calm. And as I recall, Senator Kennedy, then presiding over the Senate, when he heard this awful news said, “No” and that was all. In an orderly manner, he gathered up the papers on his desk that he, his routine office uh work that he brings when he presides over the Senate, so that he can conserve the time the long hours presiding over the Senate by working on his office work.

I walked off the rostrum with him with my arm around Senator Kennedy patting his shoulders and said Senator, if there’s anything any of us can do, let us know. My own suggestion would be that you contact the Air Force and have them rush you out to Texas to your brothers side in a jet, in a military jet.

He said, “Thank you. I’m going to call the White House and the Attorney General.”

 where upon by that time we had reached a phone in the lobby and he immediately put in calls to the White House and to the to to the Department of Justice seeking all the information and contact with his brother a good friend Bobby Kennedy.

—————————————

back to Neil Strausser

Of course, that trip to Dallas Texas proved unnecessary. Senator Edward Kennedy and his sister Eunice Shriver later this afternoon flew red-eyed and somber to Hyannis Port, Massachusetts to be with their parents. The late President’s youngest brother and his sister the wife of the Peace Corps Director arrived at Andrews Air Force Base at 3:20 PM by helicopter and within minutes had boarded a jet for Cape Cod to be with the ailing former Ambassador Joseph Kennedy and Mrs. Rose Kennedy.

This is Neil Strausser in Washington.

—————

And now, lets switch back to Dallas, Texas where Don Rather….. Dan Rather is standing by.

Dan?

—————

Dan Rather:  Walter, we have some additional film taken at and near Parkland Hospital where President John Kennedy died. Uh, this film is in rough-cut form. These are some of the witnesses in the area of the shooting.  There was a great deal of disbelief at first that the President had even been shot and even more disbelief that he was dead. This is in the area of the Emergency Room of the hospital, I believe. We have Eddie Barker, News Director of KRLD Television and Radio, our affiliate, in Dallas.

Eddie, this is near the emergency room of the hospital, is it not.

Eddie Barker:  Uh, yes Dan, that is correct. And that’s a Secret Service Agent, there, who is uh talking to the crowd. Uh, we uh talked to to some people who we would consider as very good sources. Uh this is uh uh when they were getting ready to uh uh to leave the hospital. And, uh, it was very difficult to get any film, because Secret Service Agents, uh, were, uh, quite adamant in keeping everyone back, uh, a good distance from.

This is Senator Yarborough, here, I believe.

Dan Rather:  Senator Yarborough

Eddie Barker:   Yes.

Dan Rather:   was one of the first, uh, to get

Eddie Barker:   Yes.

Dan Rather:   the word that the President’s death.

Eddie Barker:   Right.

Dan Rather:  He is a Democrat of Texas, Senator Ralph Yarborough.

Eddie Barker:  Right.

Eddie Barker:  This is, uh, Father Huber from Holy Trinity Church, in Dallas, who administered the last rites to the President. There were two priests, uh, in attendance. And I, uh, I do not know the other ones name, at this time.

Father Huber looks very much like, 

Dr. Charles Stanley of In Touch Ministries,

Charles Stanley

“Charles Stanley received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Richmond.

He later obtained his Masters of Divinity from 

Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Fort Worth, Texas.

Lastly, he received his Masters and Doctorate, both in theology – Th.M. and Th.D., respectively – from Luther Rice Seminary, in Florida (later relocated to Lilburn GA).”

Father Huber also resembles Arthur Meier Schlesinger, Jr.

Interesting article:

Arthur Schlesinger Jr.’s Not-So-Secret Career as a Spy

Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., a Partisan Historian of Power, Is Dead at 89

In New York, he was a man about town, whether at Truman Capote’s famous parties or escorting Jacqueline Kennedy to the movies.

Above is Father Huber according to McAdams Site who looks very much like Cardinal McIntyre of LA

who said he was eating dinner with Cardinal Ritter in Rome at the time of the news of the assassination

relayed in both CBS and NBC news coverage.

Quick to distance himself early …as well as, his compadre Ritter.

If he is Huber in the photo taken at the hospital then he must have shrunk or sucked in his lips…that, or the man at the hospital had lip augmentation to fool us. It is obviously not the same guy in any which way that you look at them.

These are a few snapshots of the unnamed priest in the dark hat.

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

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 17)

continuation of DanRather and Eddie Barker reporting:

Eddie Barker: There were shocked, uh, people all around, as you can see, from these crowds many of them hospital employees.

Dan Rather:  Uh, quite a large crowd gathered at the hospital.

Eddie Barker:  Yes, uh, there was, uh, quite a traffic jam out there.

Looks like a woman hyper-ventilating and breathing in a paper sack or crying hiding behind the object in her hand.

Dan Rather:  These scenes are at Parkland Hospital in Dallas,

Eddie Barker:  That’s correct.

Dan Rather:  ….where President John Kennedy died.

Eddie Barker  Dan I, I uh, don’t know whether you are aware of this, or not: uh, Mrs. Kennedy, uh, maintained her composure, we understand, uh, up until the time that she actually went into, uh, the room where the, uh, Presidents body lay and uh, she said,

“Jack, Jack, no, no,”  was, uh, the uh, was the word, were the words that she used.

Note : because that is what Jackie says she said

when 

President Kennedy was shot. 

 She rode, uh, from the hospital to the airport, uh, in the back section of the hertz. It was a cream colored (Eddie adjusts his glasses), um, hertz belonging to a local funeral home, here. The curtains were drawn, but as she, uh, as the, uh, hertz left, Mrs. Kennedy could be seen in the back and the President’s body was airborne at 47 minutes past 2:00 o’clock.

That’s Central Standard Time.

Dan Rather:  Texas time, yes.

————————————————

This is an interesting conversation because Mr. Eddie Barker wants to be sure to say that

Texas Time is Central Standard Time!

Or is he saying something else in regards to the assassination of President Kennedy

such as

now it’s Texas Time?

But Walter Cronkite  said that Central time was not Texas time.

I realize that now Central time is Texas time,

but I have no idea whether Texas time was Central Standard time

at the time when President Kennedy was assassinated!

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

Please read part 15 at the beginning of the tape Walter Cronkite announces :

“He died there at one PM Central Standard Time

at noon Dallas time today.”

+++++++++++ 

Dan Rather:  We covered Mrs. Kennedy yesterday in San Antonio as she arrived with her husband (Eddie Barker adjusts his notes and then at 1:30/10:03 Eddie with his fore finger and middle finger as seen in photo above which looks like the signal that Billy Graham gave when Jackie received the puppet over the fence line at the airport. I may be reading too much into all of these signals or gestures of these reporters, but I am just trying to be as precise as possible about those gestures) and the Lyndon Johnsons.

There had been some reports from the White House Press Corp that Mrs. Kennedy was reluctant to make the Texas Trip. It had been billed in many quarters as strictly a political trip and as Mrs. Kennedy arrived in San Antonio she at first appeared to be rather ill at ease, but later in the day she seemed to warm up to the occasion and I noticed today in both Fort Worth and Dallas that she really seemed to be enjoying herself. I think with Mrs. Kennedy there was, uh, some reluctance to come to this state, because people would tell her Well, they’re a different kind of people. Uh, but she did seem to be enjoying herself thoroughly throughout the day.

 Her husband was assassinated ……but Dan Rather is saying that Jackie was enjoying herself. What a strange thing to say!

Eyewitnesses at the shooting say that in the early moments immediately after the shooting that the President’s head was in Mrs. Kennedy’s lap and that Mrs. Kennedy did, co uh, restrain herself, did have her composure until the time she went into the hospital where uh the President, then dead, uh, was. (Dan Rather licks)

That certainly made no sense at the end. This is a weird conversation from Dan Rather, as if chiding Mrs. Kennedy, I think.

Is Dan Rather mocking?

Eddie Barker:   She a walked out of the hospital, Dan, under her own power. Uh, there was no one, uh, from where we were standing, there was no one uh uh holding on to her arms. She walked out. She was hatless when she came out of the, uh, Emergency Exit and ,uh, got into the, uh, Hertz that bore the body to the airport.

Is Eddie Barker mocking?

Dan Rather:  Eddie a lot of questions are going to be asked (Eddie adjusts glasses) about what kind of place is Dallas, Texas. Just recently there was the publicity about the city and the rough reception that the United States Ambassador to the United Nations Adlai Stevenson got here, that was the occassion in which he was spat upon, and hit with a picket sign. (Eddie scratches left eye brow temple area) Uh, I think Mayor Cabell (pronounced with long A sound)

Eddie Barker:  Cabell (corrects Dan about pronounciation with short A sound)

Dan Rather:  Cabell only yesterday made a statement saying that this city was quite anxious to give President Kennedy an especially warm welcome, because of that incident. But there going to be a lot of questions asked in the coming days about what kind of place is Dallas, Texas uh a place in which this could happen. You’re a long time resident here and in the eyes of many, uh, sort of Mr. Dallas. Could you tell us what kind of place this is?

Eddie Barker:  Dan, it’s a, Dan actually it’s a very fine place and it’s a very fine city and, uh, uh, I know the city fathers have discussed this in great length.

Who are the city fathers?

or does he mean uh uh Fathers? as in Priests?

but uh uh there is an element that has developed here in the past few years uh that considers itself a uh wing, uh, very much to the right, the far right, and uh, this, this is certainly a very uh small minority. I know today at the luncheon that the President was to have attended and I looking over the uh people who were there and there were many Republicans, there were many uh conservative Democrats, but they were all out there to welcome and to honor the the Office of the President of the United States. And um this uh this is something that uh certainly this city is going to be uh living with for a long time, but uh this does not in any way reflect the great majority of the people here. Politics in this town or uh different certainly than they are in a lot of places uh. There are many factions of the Democratic party. Uh the Republican Party as you know is very strong. We have a Republican Congressman.

We had a situation here a few years back uh you may remember when uh uh Senator Johnson had his uh uh then Senator uh Johnson had his problems in one of the down town hotels. That was

Dan Rather:  That was in the 1960 campaign.

I have no idea what he is talking about, sorry. 

Eddie Barker:  Yes. Yes. But this is a minority group and certainly is not a reflection of this this community. Many of these leaders I will say in closing when the word came today at the Market, at the Trade Mart, uh that the President was dead uh they broke down and cried. It was a very moving thing.

Dan Rather:  We’re going to switch now from Dallas, Texas back to CBS News Headquarters in New York.

————————————————————-

Walter Cronkite

The news, as you know it, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas today.

Twelve twenty-five (12:25) he was shot in a motorcade on route to a speech in Dallas from the Dallas airport and died 35 minutes later. Lyndon Baines Johnson, 55 year old Vice President, took the Oath of Office in an airplane at Love Field and is flying back to Washington to take the reins of government.

Governor John Connally of Texas was shot also and is in serious condition at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

Charles Collingwood if you want to come in and relieve me a little while. We are at CBS News. Going to stay on the air throughout this day to bring you details as we have them.

That Presidential Plane is expected back in Washington now we are told at 6:05 with the Presidents body. Charles?

—————–————————————————

Charles Collingwood

As Walter Cronkite has told you, the Vice President, the former Vice President, the 36th President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson is on his way back to Washington after having been sworn in in the Executive Compartment of the same plane which brought President Kennedy to Dallas, Texas this morning. (licks)

President Johnson was sworn in by Judge Sarah Hughes, a Federal Judge in Texas, who wept with emotion as she administered the Oath of Office to the Vice President by which he became the President of the United States. At the ceremony, Mrs. Johnson, who had accompanied the President on the the uh tour of Texas, was there as were various staff members, Congressmen who were present, and all those with some official capacity or who uh could be brought into the ceremony.

It’s in the nature of things, of our Presidential succession, that the emphasis, the spotlight, is now upon the new President. No one is ever prepared for an event of this kind, not the Secret Service which can only take the most effective precautions possible and can never safeguard against some twisted person who can circumvent the most careful precautions that can be taken.

Of course,

if the men in government are twisted,

and if the men in the clergy are twisted

then anything twisted can happen

no matter how great a system works.

It isn’t the machinery that makes a great country.

That is like saying my computer makes me great.

We may have the tools, but are we using them right?

Who is Benefitting?

We certainly are being bombarded in every which way!

We may have “the word”

but are we interpreting and understanding

 “the word”

correctly?

Not the public certainly, not the officials of government, but the machinery for the succession to the Presidency of the United States has been well tested over the years. And thus it was that less than 2 hours after the Presidents death, Vice President Johnson was sworn-in in the plane which brought the President to to Texas and which took another President back to Washington D.C..

Also on route to Washington in the air is the President’s body, accompanied by Mrs.Kennedy who was in the same automobile with him when the assassin’s bullet was fired in Texas, in Dallas, Texas, this morning.

We continue to have reports, fragmentary and confused still, as the law enforcement machinery in Texas on both the State, the City and the Federal level are engaged in trying to find the persons or person, the person or the persons responsible for the bullet which was fired from the building which overlooked the route by which the cavalcade uh which the cavalcade followed as the President, the Governor of Texas, the Vice President, Senator Yarborough, assorted dignitaries, moved from down town Texas to a Trade Mart on the outskirts.

A bulletin here from Dallas says that Governor John Connally of Texas wounded by the sniper who assassinated President Kennedy was described this afternoon as being in a very, very serious, but not critical, condition.

Julian Reid an aide to Governor Connally said that Connally suffered three wounds: one in the right arm, one in the right leg, and one in the back that pierced his body. Julian said that Connally had been in surgery an hour and probably would be there for another hour.

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

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 18)

Now, for a report from our Mobile Unit in Chicago. We go to Chicago and Russ Bensly:

The flagstaff tells the story at the corner of State and Madison Streets. Beneath it the bright lights, the Christmas demonstrations. But they have no joy today. Here in Chicago the crowds who came downtown to shop are standing around in silence and sorrow in the rain.

The strange thing is you don’t even notice it’s raining, and if you do notice, you don’t care.

 How Stupid!

Most of those who have talked to us here share the universal feeling of shock.

Some have a feeling of anger.

We thought we’d let you hear how they feel.

Sir, how did the news of President Kennedy’s death affect you?

-As a man of God, I would say that I felt the impact of the snipers bullet. I would also s-say that I felt the pain that the President had in his dying moments. Thank you.

You, sir?

-I’m shocked, very shocked at this, ah We read about many countries losing their heads of government through assassination, but I never dreamed that it would ever happen to our head of government. I’m very sad, indeed.

Thank you. How do you feel, sir?

It was once said that history repeats itself.

Look at Abe Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth. The rain you see here in Chicago is not rain, it’s emotion.

Looks like the soft jazz singer! Harry Conick, Jr.

Sir, how do you feel?

-Well, I feel shocked. I can hardly express my emotion and I hope that the country will survive.

Ma’am?

-I can’t say th  crying

Sir?

-I just couldn’t believe it when I heard it. We were in school all of a sudden we were just told the President was dead.

It just, it wasn’t, it didn’t seem possible.

How do  you feel now?

-Like a daze. You don’t know what’s going on and why? Why did it happen?

Who would have done such a thing?…. is the question.

Sir?

-This is a dark day in the history of America. This man, I think wanted to save America.

He is not dead. His spirit lives.

We are sorry. Deeply moved over this incident here in America.

I’m sorry.

– I just can’t believe it. It just. I feel like uh someone in my own family has died, has died. I just can’t believe it.

Looks like the comedian Chris Rock.

– It feels like a loss in the old family.

I think it’s a great loss to America.

– Came up the street, and I thought, no its not true, we are not without our President. We live in a Christian country. President Kennedy was a Christian. Please God, help his wife, his family. Give strength to his mother and to his ailing father. We will miss a great friend and a true Christian.

– We will all miss one of the greatest Presidents that ever was.

Thank you.

– I was shocked when I heard it and well they closed the City Hall in respect to him.

Everyone else was truly sorry it happened, and that’s all.

Ma’am how did the news affect you?

– I was shocked, deeply shocked. We miss, we’ve lost the uh very good President.

He was for the poor people and that’s what we need a President like that.

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

Those are typical reactions in Chicago and I imagine they’re fairly typical of the reactions across the country. There are several hours now since the news broke and the minds still reels at accepting the fact and it will continue to be an incredible tragedy for days to come. This is how Chicago feels. This is how the nation feels.

This is Russ Bensly in Chicago. Now back to CBS News in New York.

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

I do think these were very sweet and sincere reactions of the people in Chicago,

but I feel like the News people are relishing this loss to the American people. Not all of them obviously, but many of them.

I think we are being blamed for the assassination

kind of like Jackie saying she wants to wear a bloody dress all day so they can see what they have done

after smoke rises from her weapon, etc?

Doesn’t make sense,

but that’s machinery!

—————–—————————-

Charles Collingwood

That same sense of grief and disbelief is being expressed today all over the world by great people as well as by small ones.

We have some late film now from Dallas, Texas and so for that film we switch now to Dan Rather in Dallas. 

—————————————

Dan Rather

As we mentioned a short while ago a number of arrests have been made in Dallas in the wake of President Kennedy’s death. We have scenes of one of those arrests in the downtown area. This was just after a Dallas Policeman was shot in the vicinity of a downtown movie house. The suspect was brought immediately to Police Headquarters. Uh, that particular suspect is among many who is being questioned. Uh, not all of them in connection with the uh shooting. Some of the uh suspects are simply are being questioned as to possibly what they saw. The Dallas Police Headquarters is literally alive with people who have been brought in off the streets uh arrested for one cause or another.

shows Oswald face  and eyes swollen

 

 

Eddie Barker:  Dan, there is a report that an arrest has been made in Fort Worth also of a suspect.

Dan Rather:  Eddie Barker of our affiliate station KRLD who was in Dallas who was covering the Presidents arrival today. uh At least a half dozen suspects or people identified as suspects by police have been picked up here in Dallas.

We also have the first films that we’ve had available of the Parkland Hospital. Well these are films of a pistol taken off one suspect in the down town area. Now, earlier reports said that the President had been shot with a 30-caliber weapon or some description, but that particular pistol was taken off of a suspect arrested in the down town area. We have the films taken at Parkland Hospital at the time the ambulance uh carrying the body of President Kennedy. I believe these are arrival films, are they not? This is

Eddie Barker:   No, this is when they’re getting ready to leave, I believe, Dan. I……

Dan Rather:  The group, the Presidential Party, coming out of the hospital.

Eddie Barker:   Yes yes yes.

Dan Rather:  Those particular people cannot be identified. They were part of the Presidential Party.

Eddie Barker:  The Presidents the Presidents secretary, Mrs. Lincoln, who came out about this time, but I’m not sure if that is her.

Dan Rather:  This is a scene at Dallas’s Parkland Hospital as the body of President Kennedy was brought out and taken to Dallas’s Love Field to be flown to Washington.

Eddie Barker:   Yes, it is.

Dan Rather:  The body is now now on route by plane to Washington. Also on route to Washington is the 36th President of the United States Lyndon Baines Johnson. It was quite a crowd at the Parkland Hospital about this time when the President’s body was taken away, but most of the crowd was away from that particular section of the hospital.

Earlier today down in Uvalde, Texas Former Vice President John Nance Garner celebrated his 95th birthday. Mr. Garner refused to grant any interview as such but in the course of a conversation with reporters this was some two hours before President Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas. Former Vice President under Franklin Roosevelt John Nance Garner said he felt that President Kennedy might become one of the great Presidents of this country. Former Vice President Garner a long time friend of Lyndon Johnson.

The center picture looks like Oswald is holding back a smile

after he looks at the guy behind him who is smiling.

Have you heard of Oswald Oil Company?

This is another scene at Dallas Police Headquarters of suspects being brought in. Suspects rounded up in practically all sections of town. We mentioned earlier that some rifle shells were found in a upper story of a multi story building right across the street from where President Kennedy was shot. Police a ringed/reined? (actually sounds like he says arraigned) that building and made a systematic search of it, but they did not arrest any suspect inside the building. Police have taken a number of weapons off persons that they believe to have been in the crowd. It has not been definitely determined that a 30-caliber weapon was the weapon used to kill President Kennedy. Uh those were the earlier reports and Dallas Police are working on that theory at the moment.

We have a statement that has been issued by

the Dallas Citizens Council, the Dallas Assembly, and the Science Research Center of Dallas. This statement is signed by Mr. J. E Johnson President of the Dallas Citizens Council, Mr. W. Dawson Sterling President of the Dallas Assembly, and Dr. Lloyd B. Burknor who is President of the Science Research Center.

And this statement says,

 Our hearts are filled with sorrow. We are deeply distressed and grieved that the respectful and enthusiastic welcome

in progress for our President

was terminated by an 

Act of Lunacy.

This is Dan Rather in Dallas, Texas with Eddie Barker. Back now to CBS Headquarters in New York:

Charles Collingwood

While the new President of the United States, President Lyndon Baines Johnson, sworn in in the Executive Cabin of the Presidential plane within 2 hours after President Kennedy’s death. While the new President is flying back to Washington reports come in from all over the world of the universal sense of shock and grief and disbelief with which the news of the President’s assassination was greeted.

In England, British Television Stations told their viewers tonight that President Kennedy had been killed and then suspended regular broadcasts.

The British Broadcasting Corporation and the Independent Television Network

went on the air playing funeral music in honor of the President.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 19)

All in small groups, and in large ones, and individuals all over Europe, th the sense of of grief

and, and, and, heartbreak was expressed.

President, uh, Charles de Gaulle said that

“President Kennedy died like a soldier under fire for his duty and in the service of his country.”

De Gaulle went on- “In the name of the French people, ever the friend of the American people,

I salute this great example and this great memory.”

Other European leaders joined in similar tribute.

In this country, President, former President Harry S. Truman who, himself, succeeded to the Presidency on the death of President Roosevelt, and who, himself, was an intended victim of assassins bullets 13 years ago. President Truman was too stricken by the news of President Kennedy’s assassination to comment immediately, but Mrs. Truman said that the former President would issue a statement later. Truman was at his home in Independence when he heard the news of President Kennedy’s death.

Richard Nixon who ran against President Kennedy for the Presidency of the United States said “the assassination of the President is a terrible tragedy for the nation. Mrs. Nixon and I have sent a personal message expressing our deepest sympathy to the members of the family in this hour of sorrow.”

In Washington, the nation’s leaders of both parties express their grief and sorrow.

For that report we go now to Neil Strauser in Washington:

We now have film of the reaction of the Democratic and the Republican leaders of the Senate. Democrat Mike Mansfield and Republican Everitt Dirkson met newsmen together in a show of bi-partisan sorrow at the death of our Chief of State.

Give me a break….bi-partisan sorrow?

 We hear first from Senator Dirkson:

“There are some things that are simply incredible and leave one absolutely speechless. This is one of them. I knew John Fitzgerald Kennedy as a Representative, as a Senator, and as a President for 14 years or more and my last visit with him was on Tuesday morning of this week. I went early to present him with a turkey from the Turkey Growers Association. He was so amiable so affable so agreeable and he looked in the very pink of condition notwithstanding a rather rugged tour in the state of Florida.The thing that stuck in my mind most when suddenly he shouted to a lot of school children and to those managing this live turkey – Don’t take the turkey away until the children have had a chance to come up and see it. We visited about many things. politics. bills pending in Congress, the future 19 hundred and sixty four and everything that one can encompass within a half hour visit and suddenly comes this mortal blow that strikes him cold and dead. I say its an incredible thing and uh my heart goes out to the family and that I’m a little frankly I’m a little bewildered by this turn of events as I know the nation and the whole wide world will be. So first my sincere sympathy to the entire Kennedy family and in the language of the Chaplain as we had a prayer in the hope that transfusion might infuse recovery that uh the nation still stands and the nation will live.”

And the Majority Leader of the Senate, Mike Mansfield:

“The passing of John Fitzgerald Kennedy is not only a tragedy for the nation which he so ably represented but is I think also a mark upon the respectability and the responsibility of some of our citizens. This good, this decent, this kindly man, this harassed man who had so much on his shoulders and received from some people so little in the way of support in return this man has now gone to his reward. And I will miss him as a personal friend. The nation will miss him as a great President. And the world will miss him as a great leader. One of the fondest memories I can recall is the cooperation and the support which the distinguished Senator from Illinois Mr. Dirkson the Minority Leader of the Senate gave to the President of the United States, a Democrat, time and time again when the interest of the nation were at stake. And I know how grateful he was to you for the many contributions you made and I’m just as grateful and the nation is too. Words are, words are, useless too express one’s true feelings at a moment like this.”

– “Mike, a person’s perplexity is just too great in a tragic moment like this.”

Dirkson and Mansfield

————————–

In this time of tragedy there are no political differences. Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona, the Republican many thought might be opposing President Kennedy the late President Kennedy in 1964 has issued this statement through his Washington office – It is both shocking and dreadful that a thing like this could happen in a free country. The President’s death is a profound loss to the nation and the free world. He and I were personal friends. It is also a great loss to me. Mrs. Goldwater and I offer our heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. Kennedy and to the President’s family.

As for members of the Presidents family Paul Niven reports from the Attorney General Robert Kennedys home in McCLean that the Attorney General learned of the shooting while he was at lunch with Robert Mar Morganthall, the unsuccessful candidate for Governor last year in New York.

Attorney General Kennedy was told by J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI a priest later visited the house

and another visitor was CIA’s chief John McCone.

Both of them walked in the garden for several minutes.

WAS J. EDGAR HOOVER A PRIEST or did a priest later visit the house?

It makes sense to me that J. Edgar Hoover was a priest!

Mrs. Ethyl Kennedy left home briefly to get the children probably from school. When they returned the Attorney General met them at the door and gathered one of his daughters into his arms. There has been no statement from the Attorney General. Local Police are protecting the home.

Caroline Kennedy who observes her 6th birthday anniversary next Wednesday and her brother John Jr who observes his 3rd on Monday were in the White House today when their father was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. It is believed that their mother, Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy, was faced with the task of telling them what happened. She, of course, is returning on the plane with the Presidents body. Will be back in Washington later tonight.

The President’s youngest brother, Senator Edward Kennedy, first heard about the shooting on the Senate floor while he was presiding over the Senate. We now have films of Senator Kennedy as he arrived at Andrews Air Force Base and boarded the jet flying to Hyannis Port, Maryland to be with the President’s ailing father, the late President’s ailing father, Joseph Kennedy and Mrs. Rose Kennedy.

.

And thats the story as we have it at this time in Washington.

This is Neil Strauuser reporting.

———————————-

As silent and weeping crowds gather outside the White House in Washington summoned by the tragedy the flag at the White House flies at half mast. It was lowered within moments after word of the Presidents death was received. We have reports from all over this country, all over the world, of the shock at what transpired in Dallas, Texas this morning.

New York’s Governor Nelson Rockerfeller a would be opponent of President Kennedy and the election in 1964 has called President Kennedys death a shock and a terrible tragedy. Rockerfeller immediately canceled a political trip which he was to have made to New Hampshire where he is taking part in the Primary Campaign in that state which had been scheduled to begin on Sunday. Governor Rockerfeller has ordered that the flags on all New York State buildings be lowered to half staff for the next 30 days. Rockerfeller has ordered that all public state ceremonies scheduled within the next few days to be cancelled.

More bulletins come in from Dallas, Texan, Texas as they have been all afternoon, uh, talking about the efforts to apprehend the assassin. Police today seized one man, Lee H. Oswald, wh who whom you probably  already heard. He is identified as Chairman of a Fair Play for Cuba Committee and is regarded, at least as far as we know, as the prime suspect in the assassination of President Kennedy.

Such as the nature of the American system for the Presidential succession that shortly after President Kennedy’s death was announced Vice President Johnson was Sworn-In in an impromptu ceremony in the Executive Cabin of the Presidential Plane, the very plane that had carried President Kennedy to Dallas this morning.

The new Chief Executive was took the Oath of Office

at 2:39 PM w uh Central Time, 

that’s Dallas Time,

thats 3:39 PM Eastern Time

and for the first time in history the Oath

was administered by a woman

US District Judge Sara T Hughes. 

(10:10-12:11/10:31)tongue

Johnson was sworn in on the Air Force Number One, the Presidential Plane, and he then flew on to Washington. He’s now en route airborne to Washington to take up the duties of Chief Executive of the United States duties,

which cannot wait upon sorrow or tragedy.

END

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

 

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 20)

 Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Johnson were both present at the swearing-in of President Johnson. So were several Congressmen, White House Staff members who accompanied the Presidential trip. Johnson asked as many of the White House people who were there as possible to crowd into the plane to witness the ceremony. Judge Hughes wept as she administered the traditional Presidential Oath to President Johnson. And then the plane took off immediately for Washington with Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Kennedy, and some White House Aides aboard.

President Kennedy’s body is following on another plane.

Vice President Johnson is a figure who has not been without controversy (and/in?) our system. He, himself, had uh tried for the Presidency in 1960. Accepted the Vice Presidency when it wa the Vice Presidential nomination when it was offered to him by President Kennedy, and has been a loyal aide in the last 3 years to President Kennedy submerging his own ambitions and many uh ways his own personality to help the President carry on the programs to which he was pledged.

Many statements are coming in from all over the world: an eloquent one from France by General De Gaulle who said that in soldierly language that President Kennedy had died like a soldier, uh, by fire in the battle which he waged.

Here is a statement which has just come in from Jay Erwin Miller,

President of the National Council of Churches (licks 1:48/10:51) 

and uh

 (camera switches to Dar Rather and then quickly to Parkland Hospital (1:54/10:51)

We have a report now which uh has to do with uh w uh the a news conference at Parkland Hospital a report on the condition of Governor John Connally of Texas, so we switch to pla

(film shows doctors and newsmen but is inaudible, because of the crowd in the room and it’s noise and confusion)

The scene is the Parkland Hospital at Dallas Texas. This is Dan Rather of CBS News. The man you are seeing here is the doctor who has been attending Texas Governor John Connally.

I’m Dr. Robert R. Shaw Professor of Thoracic Surgery at Southwestern Medical School. (blink 2:47/10:51) 

Because of this position I accepted the responsibility of taking care of Governor Connally for the…..

interrupted, long pause, nods and smiles./ 3:14/10:51

I’m Dr. Robert R. Shaw Professor of Thoracic Surgery at Southwestern Medical School. Because of my position I accepted the responsibility of taking care of Governor Connally uh following his injury. I want to say at the outset that the condition of the Governor is quite satisfactory in view of the injury that he has sustained. He seemed to have been struck by just one bullet which entered the right posterior chest close to the shoulder blade and coursed downward along the chest wall taking out and fragmenting a portion of the fifth rib on the right. The bullet then emerged from the chest evidently struck his right wrist fracturing the lower portion of the right radius and then entered the left thigh where it was spent. The thigh wound is trivial. The fracture of the radius should heal without difficulty or without further disability. Our major problem was the sucking wound of the right chest wall because in making the wound of the chest the fragments of the fifth rib became what we refer to as secondary missiles and these caused a considerable amount of tissue damage in the point where the missile emerged from the chest. When the wound had been enlarged in order to remove damaged tissue the lung could be expect inspected. It was found that there was a tear in the middle lobe of the lung, which had to be repaired. There was also a small hole in the lower lobe undoubtedly due to a small rib fragment. This was of no consequence. The major problem was a matter of completely controlling all bleeding points, removing all damaged muscle and tissue, and then securing a tight closure of the chest wall so that the right lung could be re-expanded. The Governor’s condition was good during all of this. He was perfectly lucid before anesthesia was started. And from what we know about his injury and his condition at the present time, we have no reason to believe that he won’t completely recover without significant disability of any sort.

 Someone asks or says something to him on stage 6:24/10:51 Large Pause.

-someone asks question How long do you feel that inaudible Connally the Governor will be required to stay in the hospital here in Parkland?

 I think this is what the guy asked!

—The length of time he will be in the hospital will be determined more by the clearing of the bruise to the right lung and I would estimate that this would be in the neighborhood of 10 to 14 days. This doesn’t mean that this injury will be completely clear by this time, but at least we should have a good idea as to the trend of the clearing.

-Another question inaudible

Pardon? The, the trend of the clearing, uh, whether it is clearing, or not.

-Another question inaudible

We didn’t mention the President to Governor Connally.

-Another inaudible question

-Long Pause and another inaudible question

—-No. They are now uh taking care of the compound fracture of the right radius. As soon as that is is finished (rubs left eye with left hand) he will be taken to the recovery room where he will be carefully watched until he has regained all of his vital signs. Now, his vital signs are good now, but we like to observe them for a period of time. This is a routine measure until blood pressure is stable, respirations are satisfactory, and until the Governor is, uh, fully recovered from the anesthesia, in other words, he’s fully conscious responding rationally to questions.

-Another inaudible question

—–Uh, this is being taken care of. The bullet is in the leg. It hasn’t been removed. This is a very insignificant factor, though. It will be removed.

-The right leg?

—-Left thigh, but there’s no significant injury to the left thigh.

-When will it be removed? 

—-Before he goes to the Recovery Room.

-Another inaudible question

—-I think it would be advisable.

-Another inaudible question

No, this is, uh, really a reconstruction of what must have happened. But assuming, of course, uh, we know that the government, the Governor was in the sitting position.

Puts left arm over his right shoulder of back while saying 

We know that the wound of entrance is along side the shoulder blade here. 8:54/10:51

then he puts left arm under the right arm to the right shoulder of back here 8:57/10:51

but the wound of exit was here.

 has left hand on right chest sort of under right arm 8:59/10:51

We speculate that his arm were perhaps about in this position 9:03/10:51

and that it fractured his arm here 9:05/10:51

and then went on with him sitting into his left thigh.

This is a matter of trying to reconstruct the trajectory of the bullet.

He was shot from above and he was in the sitting position, so we feel that this is all one bullet that, uh

-someone interrupts inaudible

Nogarbled

-another inaudible question

Yes, the lung was collapsed, however don’t stress that point.

The lung could be easily re-expanded. It’s like a balloon. You can let it down and blow it up again.

-another question but he turns back to same guy who asks something inaudible about the lung

The lung is now re-expanded.

-another question about the large quantity of blood

We felt that the Governor had lost approximately 1500 CC’s of blood.

We counted in units 500 CC’s to a unit and this is what has been given back to him.

-another inaudible question 

Quart and a half.

-Sir, we missed the early part of your uh diagnosis and your expla….. inaudible.

Someone else says: Let’s wait please sir until the other questions are finished. Any other questions?

-What are the..inaudible

 Dr. Robert R. Shaw

sounds just like Bob Barker from

Let’s Make A Deal.

(Does not surprise me after all of the others from Hollywood that seem to be involved!)

and film cuts to Dan Rather in studio:

———————

This is Dan Rather in Dallas, Texas. What you have been watching is the official briefing from the doctor at Dallas’s Parkland Hospital who has been attending shot Texas Governor John Connally. As you heard Governor Connally is in serious, but not critical condition.

Back now to CBS News glitch quarters in New York.

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

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 21)

As they did, as you have heard, for Governor Connally of Texas, the doctors did all they could for President Kennedy. Oxygen, blood transfusions, an operation to ease his breathing, but as you know there was really nothing that they could do for the President. The President’s body, President Kennedy’s body will Lie in State at the White House tomorrow according to the Speaker of the House, John McCormick.  All day tomorrow the President’s body will Lie in State. McCormack says he thinks the body will then be taken to the Capitol on Sunday to remain in the Great Rotunda of the Capitol until about noon on Monday. Further plans are indefinite, but its understood that the actual funeral services are going to be held in Boston after the Lying in State in Washington. Traditionally, Presidents who die in Office have Lain in State at the Rotunda. Pentagon officials expect the funeral to be a full-dress-state-ceremony and preparations are now going ahead on that assumption. Officials of the military district of Washington said that the President’s family will determine the timing and the scope of the ceremony which now will be held, or its believed will be held, that they will wish to have held, in Boston rather than Washington. All this planning of course is tentative uh  the President Kennedy’s body is still en route by air from Dallas where he was slain by an assassin today. Also aboard the Presidential Plane with the body were Mrs. Kennedy the new President Lyndon B. Johnson and Mrs. Johnson. The plane is due at Andrews Air Force Base at 6:05 PM Eastern Standard Time. A well informed source said that first the President’s body would be taken to Bethesda Naval Hospital tonight and the Lying in State uh would begin tomorrow at the White House and then at the Capitol. President Johnson will go to the White House. As you may have heard former President Eisenhower has issued a statement on the death of President Kennedy. The film has just arrived and here is

President Eisenhower:

-I share the sense of shock and dismay that the entire nation must feel at the despicable act that took the life of the nation’s President.

On the personal side, Mrs. Eisenhower and I share the grief that Mrs. Kennedy must now feel and we send to her our frair prayerful thoughts and sympathetic sentiments at this, in this hour.

Press-General, how would you counsel the American people at this time?

—In the face of such a terrible thing I am sure the uh entire citizenry of the nation will join as one man in expressing that not only their grief but their indi indignation at this act and will stand faithfully behind the government.

Press-General could you tell us

how you got the word?

—I was at a meeting uh, uh, for the United Nations. And uh, while there a member of the meeting was called out and they came back and told us the news. Although, at that time, uh, uh we did not know the President was dead. We did not know when I got back here at that time that he was dead. But, um, as a matter of fact we had a– the last message we had was one rather of hope. And the entire company uh merely paused for a minute that they could (at the?) request of the chairman and each of us in his own way uh said a silent prayer for the President.

Press-Should there be any concern, sir, over National Security at a time like this?

-No, I think the whole nation now would be

uh almost all of us 

security agents!

(Very angry and adamant when he says Security Agents!   

 4:17/10:14  

Press-Will the nation be alright in the few months ahead?

-Oh, I’m not going to uh predict anything of that, I just say this:

the American nation is a people of great common sense and they are not going to be stampeded or bewildered.

Press-Mr. President…I just

History has uh had assassinations uh affected the political course of events?

 A bit hard to understand the question I may have it wrong!

Well, of course, in Lincoln’s uh uh assassination you will the uh (garbled) the Presidency went to a man who was a registered Democrat, uh Mr. Johnson. In Garfield, I doubt that there was any. And, of course, McKinnley that brought in uh uh Theodore Roosevelt.

Of course, there have been other attempts in late years: uh, Mr. Cooman was at a grain/grave? threat toward to his life

and Mr. Roosevelt just before he was inaugurated, you remember, down at the, when the Mayor of Surmac was killed – was uh, ran a very grave, uh, risk. They these things have happened and and and and it seems inexplicable to me, because Americans are loyal. And it’s just this uh occasional psychopathic sort of uh uh accident that occurs and I I don’t know what we can do about it.

Who the heck is he talking about?

Mr. Cooman/Combman/Kewman?

If anyone knows please send a note in regards to Mr. Cooman. I have no idea what or who he is talking about:)

Press-Could you say anything General about how people will feel abroad from all your experience with your United Nations and others.

How will it be taken abroad?

—Well, I think they will be, uh, a bit bewildered. This um in a civilized countries of the world, this doesn’t happen, uh, so often. And uh, you remember, in the starting of WWI the um murder of the Arch Duke Ferdinand, I think his name was. Why this in itself almost, uh, well it one of the contributory causes to uh that war. And, uh, but here, I I just don’t know what happens. And it. But we are a nation that where our freedoms are allowed or are observed in such a way that everybody is, uh, ready to, I mean, everybody is, uh, you might say, capable of doing this if  he’s ready to put his own life on the line.

Whew!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That last statement is quite  fragmented and it just does not make sense,

but maybe someone else can figure it out because I don’t really understand what he is saying.

Obviously, President Eisenhower is visibly upset and is having a hard time expressing himself.

I have to add that the questions are a bit stupid, IMO and seem to be a mock by the press, whether or not they are aware. 

 

Press-General, how will you spend the rest of today, and tomorrow?

-How will you spend the rest of today and then tomorrow?

—I exp, I have cancelled the dinner date that I had for tonight. Tomorrow, I’m going immediately to my home and if I’m wanted for any purpose, whatsoever, I will, of course, be available.

Press-Do you have any advise for the American people at this time sir?

—No, as I said, I know the American people will stand solid and they will not be, uh, stampeded.

Press-Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you.

Al right. Goodnight

——————

I think “the word” the press is mockingly referring to, is the “benediction” given in Dallas at the Trade Mart after the President was assassinated, establishing some sort of power over the people and our government. I think that is pretty evident by the members of the entourage at the airport and their affiliation with the Benedictine order.

Is the Benedictine Order actually followers of the WYRD? How about Opus Dei? Are they involved? I would guess so. Is this the Saxon influence?

Modern usage in Satanism and Paganism

The extreme Satanic organization Order of Nine Angles makes frequent reference to wyrd in its publicly available writings, which Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke’s 2002 book Black Sun speculates may indicate roots in a pre-Christian native tradition of paganism or Wicca.[3]

No wonder.  Makes the massacres in our country lately make sense (IN a Wyrd WAY) and the people involved and their appearance as if high and in a trance.

I believe they The Benedictines made a pledge to make our country heel like dogs partially in revenge for our success in WWll

and the bombing of Monte Cassino their Benedictine monastery by our forces

and I believe Eisenhower was President or the commanding General that was involved with that particular offensive in WWll at that particular time.

Something about that monastery seemed extremely important considering the damage done in WWll to other locations and people.

I wonder what was in that location that they were protecting.

 Please read about that in the article below:

Rome’s secret weapon for recatholicising the EU

“This brings us to Benedict and Rome today.  Readers will be well aware of the Vatican’s efforts after World War II to dominate Europe through the Treaty of Rome.  This strategy was spearheaded by the “St Benedict for first European” campaign conceived during World War II.  Pius XII may have been silent about the holocaust but he certainly made waves when one of Benedict’s early monasteries, Monte Cassino, was bombed by the allies.  Churchill, unworried, correctly observed, “the enemy fortifications were hardly separate from the building itself”. But Pius castigated it as an “atrocity bombing”.  He and his two successors, John XXIII and Paul VI, all vowed to use Benedict’s European credentials to bring the continent to heel.”

Maybe the secret weapon for

recatho-lic-ising

the EU was a drug.

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

Is that what all the licking is about?

Catholics?

CBS News will continue its live coverage throughout this evening. We’ll be back in 30 seconds after a pause for our stations to identify themselves.

Shows American Flag at half mast.

We continue now our reports on the aftermath of President Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Texas. CBS News White House Correspondent Robert Pierpoint was with the Presidential party in Dallas and we switch to Mr. Pierpoint now with Dan Rather at Station KRLD TV in Dallas:

CBS News White House Correspondent Bob Pierpoint has just returned from Parkland Hospital after taking part in the motorcade in which President Kennedy was shot and going immediately to Parkland Hospital; one of the first reporters on the scene. Bob, I know that you have taken copious notes on the whole day so why don’t we begin at the very beginning when the Kennedys arrived in Dallas this morning.

-Well, Dan, uh, I would like to use my notebook to refer to because there’s so many impressions, tragic ideas, and thoughts, going through my mind and, uh, I think I need to refer to this. But I would like to make the point, first of all, that this day has a terrible ironic quality about it, all the way through, as you look back on it: The President’s arrival here in Dallas was uh so warm and and so friendly. Everything seemed to be going so well. He and Mrs. Kennedy had gotten off to a good start in Fort Worth this morning. The President had spoken to a crowd outside his hotel. He was in a very good mood and humor and uh uh as we came into Dallas uh we had of course expected that there might be some protest signs some signs uh against the President but the crowd generally was larger than we had expected and uh friendly and enthusiastic. Everything seemed to be going very well. (licks 9:17/10:14) And we went down the main street of Dallas, I think it’s even called Main Street. Tremendous crowds along the sidewalk cheering and waving flags and shouting (licks 9:27/10:14) and then as we turned the corner to go by a small park right on the edge of town uh we heard three shots. We heard the explosions. We didn’t know what they were.(swipes a huge lick 9:41/10:14) and suddenly the motorcade slowed a little and then the President’s car picked up speed very quickly and disappeared. And, of course, I think all of us at that moment feared something, but we didn’t even dare express it. (licks 9:56/10:14) So I would like now to switch to a description uh that I took notes from on uh Mrs. Connally the Governor of Texas wife who was sitting in the same car with the President and with her husband and with Mrs. Kennedy at the moment that the shots were fired. (licks)

END

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 22)

The President’s car was just going under an underpass about to turn onto a freeway and Mrs. Connally says that she was discussing (licks 00:21/10:18) with the President what a warm welcome the Kennedys were receiving, which is one of the terribly ironic things about this this whole tragedy. She says that she had just s said to the President “You can’t say Dallas is not friendly to you today” and she heard a shot fired. (licks 00:40/10:18) And she feels that that first shot was the one that struck the President. Now all the indications we have are that the President never felt a thing. That from that shot which entered his throat (licks0:53/10:18) and probably came out of the other side, the back of his head. From that moment, he was unconscious until he died. Um, Mrs. Connally says that immediately (licks 1:05/10:18) her husband who was sitting just in front of the President on the right side of the car in the jump seat turned and uh(licks 1:14/10:18) as soon as he turned to the President he himself was also hit. Uh, Mrs Kennedy grabbed hold of the President and Mrs. Connally grabbed her husband (licks 1:27/10:18) and she does not, Mrs. Connally, does not recall that the President said anything, nor does anyone else from that moment on. (licks1:36/10:18) Mrs. Connally says that immediately a Secret Service man in the front of the car next to the driver grabbed the telephone and said, let’s go straight to the hospital” and at that moment, of course, the President’s car sped off and left the motorcade; hit speeds of 50 to 60 miles an hour to the Parkland Memorial Hospital, which was just a few blocks away. (licks 1:57/10:18) Now at the hospital itself uh there were some eyewitness reports to the President’s arrival there. By the time the car reached the hospital the President was lying on the back seat of the car with uh Mrs. Kennedy uh had his head creduled cradled in her lap and uh (swipes a big lick 2:17/10:18) the eyewitnesses say they did not, were not able to see the President’s face, but they did see blood, of course, all over the front of his suit his chest. And he was at that time completely motionless. He was lifted out of the car and placed on a rolling table (licks 2:36/10:18) and uh rolled into the Emergency Ward of the hospital with Mrs. Kennedy walking along beside him. A short while after that, I arrived at the hospital where (licks 2:47/10:18) uh, uh, of course, doctors and nurses and Secret Service agents and Police were all hurrying back and forth. Everyone showing strain, uh a great deal of uh worried whispering outside the room where the President was being operated on. As we’ve heard later 8 to 10 doctors actually worked frantically to to try and save the President, but apparently (licks 3:13/10:18) there was very little hope, uh, from the time he arrived at the hospital.

Uh, about uh, one o’clock rumors began to spread that the President had died. We were not able to confirm this. Uh, two priests did go in (licks 3:29/10:18) and I talked to them as they emerged from the room where the President was and, and uh, they said that they had administered the last rites. I said, “Is he still alive?” And the priest said only his condition is critical. (licks 3:42/10:18) So, at that time, I do not know whether he was dead yet. But uh, there were other indications. For instance, Senator Yarborough of Texas who had been with the party (licks 3:53/10:18) told me that he he felt the situation was extremely serious. And, and then he began to break down. And, I asked him if the President was still alive, and he said, “I just don’t know.”

Malcolm Kilduff licking and announcing the death of President Kennedy

Um, a short while later the Assistant uh Press Secretary Mr. Kildoff came out and said that he had an announcement for us. Uh, we gathered and he told us that at 1 PM the President had died of a gun shot wound. Um, (licks 4:22/10:18) from that moment, of course, officially interest had to turn to Vice President Lyndon Johnson. And uh a short time after that Mr. and Mrs. Johnson, President and Mrs. Johnson hurried out of the Emergency Ward of the hospital (swipes a big lick 4:38/10:18) surrounded by Secret Service man, uh were rushed into a car and off to the airport. About, uh, 15 minutes after that, uh a bronze casket was brought into the Emergency Ward of the hospital (licks 4:53/10:18) and uh while we waited a white ambulance drove up.

I saw the President’s secretary that is the d d dead President President Kennedy’s Secretary  Mrs. Evelyn Lincoln standing out there by the white ambulance and, of course, she looked like she was in a state of shock as I think all of us were at that time. (licks 5:13/10:18) Uh, I saw Mrs Kennedy’s Press Secretary Pamela Turner face very drawn and pale as they waited for the casket to be brought out. At, uh, I would estimate about uh 1:40 (licks 5:28/10:18) uh the bronze casket was borne out. Uh, uh it was a a large crowd of officials around it: Secret Service agents. I, I caught sight of General Clifton, the President’s Military Aide (licks 5:40/10:18) carrying one corner of the casket. And I saw Mrs. Kennedy um going walking along beside it. And uh they rushed it out to the airport. It was put on Air Force One, the President’s plane, where the swearing-in ceremonies were held for the Vice President who is now President Johnson. And they departed, the casket, Mrs. Kennedy, and the new President of the United States, for Washington.

This is Robert Pierpoint in Dallas and now back to CBS News in New York.

These are the fragments of history as they begin to be assembled on this day of historic tragedy.

We here at CBS News have been on the air continuously since the first announcement. We will continue to stay on the air.

This is a special announcement by Frank Stanton, President of the Columbia Broadcasting System(licks 6:34/10:18)

In respect for the feelings of a shocked nation the CBS Television Network and the CBS Radio Network will carry no commercial announcements and no entertainment programs until after the President’s funeral. CBS will continue to bring all the news relating to this tragic event: memorials and special broadcasts and all other news of importance throughout this period.  A statement by the President of the Columbia Broadcasting System.

Similarly, in Britain, both the BBC and the Commercial Television Network there have suspended all their broadcasts and are playing funeral music in tribute to the late President Kennedy.

There have been many developments, great and small, all over the country and all over the world. There have been statements with which we can’t keep up by so many people from the heads of nations to small people in every country in the world.

In the United States, the major Stock Exchanges of the nation shut down today minutes after the fatal shooting of the President. Stock prices on the New York Stock Exchange took their worst tumble since the so-called Black Monday in May of 1962. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 21.16 points to 7hundred 11.49  Now, that’s in Black Monday in the May of 1962 it fell 34 points.

The Yale Harvard Football Game has been cancelled. A statement by, a joint statement by, the President of Harvard Mr. Puucy and the President of Yale announced the cancellation of the traditional Yale-Harvard Football Game.

Now, here is the scene at St. Patricks a as the memorial to President Kennedy is concluded.

(in background voice says)-Hold that shot. 

This is St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City where a Memorial Mass has been said for President Kennedy.

We have many statements from (licks8:51/10:18) all over the nation. Many things have happened. I’ve just announced the cancellation of the Yale Harvard Football Game at Madison Square Garden.

Uh, the cancellation has been announced of a Prize Fight between Allen Thomas and Johnny Pursall because of the, of the, Presidents death.

Roosevelt Raceway in Long Island has cancelled its Harness Racing card. 

The border between the United States and Mexico (licks9:19/10:18) was sealed immediately after the assassination of President Kennedy uh by US authorities probably to forestall any possible escape by the uh assassin of the President from Dallas, Texas.

In London, a group of 61 New York bound airline passengers, almost all of them Americans, were about to board their plane when somebody cried that the President was dead. “Who said that?” shouted a middle-aged woman. The passengers reacted with shock, disbelief, as they did in so many other places. (licks 9:53/10:18) Uh, Americans caught in strange parts of the world learning of, of, of the death of the President.

In Rome, in Vatican City, Pope Paul the 6th prayed tonight for the soul of the President. The Pope received the news only a few moments after the President had died. President Kennedy, of course, was received an audience by the Pope in June during a visit he made to, uh, Italy.

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

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 23)

United Nations Ambassador Adelai Stevenson paid tribute to the late President.

Here is what he said:

-The tragedy of this day is beyond instant comprehension. All of us who knew him will bear the grief of his death to the day of ours. And all men everywhere who love peace and freedom and justice will bow their heads. At such a moment we can only turn to prayer. Prayer to comfort our grief, to sustain Mrs. Kennedy and his family, to strengthen President Johnson, and to guide us in the time to come.

May God help us.

Back to Charles Collingwood one of Murrow’s clan.

There has been much eloquence in reaction to the death of the President

and much inarticulate grief expressed by simple people throughout the world.

Statements by important people continue to come in to us.

One by Governor George Romney of Michigan which was issued in Omaha, Nebraska where he’s attending the Governor’s Conference. “The President’s assassination is a horrible immeasurable shock and a national tragedy. It is imperative,” said Governor Romney, “that the assassin or assassins and any influence behind them or associated with them be identified. Upon behalf of all Michigan citizens I extend our heartfelt grief and sympathy to the President’s family. Let us unite,” said the Republican Governor of Michigan,” behind our new President and give him loyal support. Our grief should renew our dedication to serve our country. “

(licks 1:57/10:06)

White House sources say that President Kennedy’s body will be taken to Bethesda Naval Hospital when it  arrives in Washington shortly after 6:00 o’clock tonight Eastern Standard Time. (licks 2:06/10:06) Vice President or the habit is still strong with all of us. (because he called him Vice instead of Pres.?) The new President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson, will go directly to the White House from Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Maryland.

A statement come to us by

 Jay Irwin Miller,

President of the National Council of Churches:

“It begins.”

“This young man, our President, rests now in the care of his Heavenly Father.

He came to responsibility in a time of difficulty and peril

and he lead the nation with courage and dignity.”

  (licks 2:42/10:06)

What begins

according to the National Council of Churches?

The ecumenical movement? Combining errors upon errors? Opus Dei (very secret organization), Catechumenal Way, 2nd Vatican Council?

JFK leaves warnings about Secret Societies and I’ll bet he meant the above movements

in all likelyhood

since they began when he died.

I should repeat to you a statement about the (licks 2:46/10:06) intentions of this broadcasting network made by Frank Stanton President of the Columbia Broadcasting System: In respect for the feelings of a shocked nation (licks 2:59/10:06) the CBS Television Network and the CBS Radio Network will carry no commercial announcements and no entertainment programs until after the President’s funeral. CBS will continue to bring all the news relating to this tragic event: memorials and special broadcasts and all other news of importance throughout this period. (licks 3:20/10:06)

As the first shock reaction to the President’s death begins to be absorbed people are (big lick 3:36/10:06) trying to access not only the influence of this tragic event on the affairs of our nation and the world, but to make an assessment of President Kennedy’s role.

An assessment of President Kennedy’s role as an international figure now from Marvin Kalb in Washington:

– Charles, possibly  we might start that assessment by pointing out that the chief adversary of the President, the Russians, Nikita Kruschev, to be quite specific. They’re 8 hours behind us in time and it was quite late in the evening when the news of the President’s assassination reached Moscow. I suppose that millions of Russian families were seated in their living rooms and their dining rooms, watching television when suddenly there was a most unusual thing on Moscow television: a bulletin from Tass, the Soviet News Agency all the way from New York. It said that an attempt had been made on Mr. Kennedy’s life. And Tass said: by persons believed to be among extreme right wing elements. Within the hour, Tass came back with another bulletin that Mr. Kennedy was dead.

No one knows exactly where Premier Nikita Kruschev is at the moment. A few days ago we know that he was in Kiev and he met there with the Danish Prime Minister(licks 4:53/10:08) We can be reasonably sure that there’s one major topic on his mind just as on the minds of most people at the State Department today, tonight, and probably throughout the weekend: What affect will the President’s death have upon East-West Relations? People at the State Department asked that question today and it’s all too soon to come up with any kind of an answer. It’s hard to gauge really what their reaction is going to be and what the reaction of the Soviet Union is going to be. Officially, undoubtedly from the Kremlin and from Nikita Kruschev, as Prime Minister of the Soviet Union, there will be expressions of regret. Probably from Nikita Kruschev the expressions of sincere regret, because since the Bay of Pigs, at the time of the Bay of Pigs rather, he really did not have, it is believed, a very high regard for John F. Kennedy.(licks 5:43/10:08) But at the time they met in Vienna, he learned to respect the President. He learned to respect the President’s determination to protect the interests of the Western world and the interests of the United States.

Kruschev is brought up in a political system that comes to believe that individuals make policy, not institutions, which is the way the United States believes. Theyre/there/their very quickly after the death of one President another man can assume total responsibility for the foreign policy of the United States. That is now the responsibility of Lyndon Johnson. But in a Soviet context it’s too uncertain, too difficult to try to assess this entire thing. And now, with respect to questions like:  Will the Russians begin to take advantage of the situation in the Western world and underdeveloped parts of the world now that there is uncertainty and some confusion and bewilderment here in Washington? I would suspect that the answer is no. (licks 6:36/10:08) Nikita Kruschev understands just as John F. Kennedy understood and Lyndon Johnson must now come to understand that in the United States and the Soviet Union there are two nations which command enormous destructive power and it is in the hands of the man who runs the White House and the man who runs the Kremlin to determine just whether this power is going to be used. And I would really suspect that at a moment like this of uncertainty in East-West relations, as well as, uncertainty in the United States uh the Kremlin will not seek to take advantage. I think that the Kremlin will probably sit tight for quite some time and make very, very certain of just in which direction American Foreign Policy is going to move.

The chief architect, the most experienced man in commanding American Foreign Policy now is the Secretary of State. (big lick 7:26/10:08) He was on board a jet liner an hour after leaving Honolulu for Tokyo for a very important economic conference there with the Japanese when the pilot uh called back and said, “Mr. Secretary, the President has been shot in Dallas.” He ordered the plane turned around immediately to be flown to Washington. That plane is now expected here at about 1:15 tomorrow morning. A few minutes later, Under Secretary of State George Ball called the Secretary and said that the President had been shot. The Secretary said he knew that the plane was already on its way back to Washington. Three or 4 minutes after that the Secretary learned by radio that the President was dead. He will be in at 1:15.

Thats all from here, Charles. Now back to CBS News in New York:

———-

Back to Charles Collingwood

The new President of the United States, Lyndon Johnson, with whom Premier Kruschev will have to reckon from now on, is flying back to Washington at this moment. He will arrive in about 40 minutes, a little after 6:00 Eastern Standard Time.

Already, President Johnson has begun to gather into his hands the reins and responsibilities of government. Immediately after he was sworn in in the Executive Cabin of the Presidential Plane at Dallas’s Love airfield this afternoon, he said, Okay, let’s get this plane back to Washington,” and they took off.

After (licks 8:54/10:08) they land in the Washington area this evening, President Johnson will go directly to the White House where he will meet with Defense Secretary McNamara and White House National Security Aide McGeorge Bundy, and then confer with bi-partison leaders of the Congress. The other Cabinet members, or at least many of them, 6 of them as you heard, were on their way to the Far East and are now air-born returning will not arrive until later. Secretary of State Rusk is with them and of course the new President Mr. Johnson will confer with them later.

The President’s body, which is also being born back to Washington by airplane (licks 9:34/10:08) will go first to the Bethesda Naval Hospital and then tomorrow it will lie in repose in the East Room of the White House. (licks 9:44/10:08)

A CBS Mobile Unit is standing by now at Hollywood and Vine Streets in Los Angelos.

We switch there now to CBS News Correspondent Charles Coralt:

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:

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.

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.

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!

CBS News and JFK (The Exchange) Parts 31-32

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 31)  

For a look at the beginning of President Kennedy’s day in Texas. A day that began without even a hint of disaster,

here from Dallas is CBS News Correspondent Dan Rather:

….. Kennedy’s final four hours began this morning at Ft. Worth’s Carswell Air Force Base. He and Mrs. Kennedy had just attended a breakfast of the Ft. Worth Chamber of Commerce. At the airport in Ft. Worth before taking off for Dallas the Kennedys as they have been prone to do all along on this Texas trip went to the fence railing to shake hands with well wishers and allow some pictures to be taken.

The President and Mrs. Kennedy both had looked particularly refreshed and rested yesterday during their trip to San Antonio and Houston and again this morning as they started to leave Ft. Worth. Democratic Congressman accompanying the President on his trip were right behind him and Mrs. Kennedy. And the two boarded Air Force One at Carswell Air Force Base for the 30-mile air trip from Ft. Worth to Dallas.

It had been a rather grey morning a little bit earlier in the day as a cold front moved across Texas and there had been some rain. Laden skies and that little bit of  rain were giving way to brilliant sunshine just about o an hour before the President’s scheduled arrival time at Dallas’s Love Field.

This was the crowd at Love Field, a particularly large greeting crowd. It was described that way by Dallas Police and Mayor Earl Cabell. It’s ironic that the rains stopped before the Presidents arrival in Dallas. Had it continued raining a bullet proof bubble top which fits over the sleek Presidential Convertible would have undoubtedly been used today and possibly would have prevented the assassination. Probably not since the person sitting next to him shot him. But as the sunshine broke through the President and Mrs. Kennedy arrived in Dallas to be greeted by a line of local dignitaries. A very enthusiastic crowd was on hand. Local reporters who have gathered many of these covered many of these gatherings called it one of the largest airport greetings in Dallas history.

Mrs. Kennedy was given a bouquet of roses. (I don’t recall any look of surprise at being handed red roses on her face. She seemed to like them.) Mrs. Kennedy seemed to enjoy a shaking hands with the local populace a bit more today than she did yesterday in San Antonio and Houston when there were times yesterday when Mrs. Kennedy appeared to be a little ill at ease. This morning she was all smiles and very warm in her greetings as was the President.

 A person in front of Oriental woman or maybe Vietnamese?? (woman with black hair smiling) has her hands on the flat black object which is in President  Kennedy’s hand. 3:04/10:50 and she seems to be trying to take the object or gave it, which the President hands that black object to a younger man in sunglasses at 3:06/10:50. Then the woman seems to disappear. Then Jackie Kennedy makes a signal with her hand to her collar as the exchange takes place at 3:07/10:50 as if signaling someone somehow as a few men in background behind Jackie Kennedy seems to be grinning from ear to ear so they are obviously aware of the exchange of the object that is occurring!

exchange picture 7 -Jackie starts to make a signal with her hand while JFK gives the man in glasses the black flat object 

exchange picture 8 Jackie makes signal on her collar

as man in background and Lady Bird (I think) are  keenly watching

What was the trade?

Another oddity about the Presient Kennedy’s assassination is the speech he is most famous for about the press and secret societies

doesn’t seem to have been live.

What I mean is,  just about everything this man did was televised, except for this speech.

I have searched for it to see him make the speech, but cannot find it anywhere. He supposedly gave it to the press at a press dinner his first year as President. As popular as he was at least at first you would think we would have seen it. I suspect it was taped and was the speech he planned to give in Dallas at the Trade Mart and having foresight he taped it to be heard if he was killed

knowing he was being surveiled by the Secret Service, the Press, the city fathers ie Evangelicals, the Vatican, etc.

That could be why Mrs. Connally said, “You can’t say that Dallas doesn’t love you,”  about the moment he was shot coincidentally. 

Could this be what he exchanged above?

If you punctuate that sentence it could be she meant,

“You can’t say that, Dallas doesn’t love you.”

But I could be reading into it too much. It is just a bit weird that she says that she said that comment the moment a shot was fired. And then later says about her strange writings (memories) that she found one day that she doesn’t remember writing, takes them to the THC (Texas Historical something or other at the University of Texas in Austin) that if she kept them as is and didn’t add punctuation or change it etc then it was considered history but if she added something to it such as a jot or tittle it would be considered a story. As if she didn’t know that, since she had worked for that association, which she failed to mention in her many interviews. I wrote quite a bit about her in few of my posts which you can find on the side bar of this page.  

——————————————————————————————–

Of course the President used to such occasions. The President spent what seemed to be in a rather long time at the Dallas Airport making sure that he shook hands with everyone who was on hand there.

As far as the dignitaries were concerned always taking time to introduce his wife.

Because of the rather long time spent at the airport the President was a bit late getting started on his motorcade through downtown Dallas. They took time out at the airport to greet an elderly lady who said she had lived 69 years without shaking hands with the President. She got her chance today.

Why 69 years? 

Of course, he is only 40 something years old. Is that a mock of some kind? Most people don’t shake hands with the President and why would she wait for 69 years to do so? I don’t know if what Dan Rather says is true but I think the number 69 is a mock of some kind. In the bible there is woman who waits to meet the Messiah and does so in the temple at the time when he is a baby but I don’t know which gospel that is in, but I do recall that. I linked the  number 69 to a list of things that occurred in the year 69. But 69 has also come to mean other things as well in our lifetime that aren’t proper to say although I might attempt to later on. I find it interesting that this story of this woman waiting 69 years to shake hands with the President right before the President is assassinated a bit disconcerting and odd  not to mention right after some kind of exchange and the hand signals by his wife!!!

Evangelist Billy Graham defends Chick-fil-A

“Earlier this year, the ailing preacher publicly endorsed a proposed constitutional amendment

to ban gay unions in North Carolina,

raising eyebrows among

many who’d watched Graham studiously

avoid thorny social issues for years.”.…..

“I’ve known their family for many years and have watched them grow Chick-fil-A

into one of the best businesses in America

while never compromising their values,” Graham said”……..

“His open letter also contains a fund-raising appeal

and a notice that Graham’s son Franklin,

himself a major evangelical figure,

is launching a new effort to

“bring the Gospel into neighborhoods and homes in every corner of America next year.”……

I think Sodomy has many meanings besides the obvious

and sow

 I would take this news tip above as a warning.

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

Back to more important issues:

Maybe the lady handed JFK something important?

By the way have you noticed that Dan Rather likes to say rather rather often? Kind of rhetorical and I believe purposefully to mock. Why? I think he illustrated through an earlier conversation with Eddie Barker on this CBS affiliate in Dallas conversation about Jackie Kennedy and her attire as she left the hospital and her actions. He knew she had assassinated the President but hints at it to the audience. Why?I don’t know of course but I think he is either trying to tell us without actually coming out and saying so or he was blackmailing Jackie Kennedy or just observing and playing a game of some strange kind! Maybe all of the above!

Here is a video of Dan Rather who says he was one of the first to see the Zapruder film

and looks as if he  did earn his career

rather nefariously:

Dan Rather Starts Career With Huge Error

04:00/10:50 Jackie sticking out her tongue

Jackie licks her lips a habit she seems to have or a social faux pas which seems to be emulated by many at CBS in these tapes and I think on purpose! She did it earlier right after she stepped off the plane in Dallas at Love Field. Possibly it is a symptom of some kind, not sure exactly. I wrote a few articles that demonstrate this oddity and the possibility of another reason for this habit:

President Kennedy and the Secret Service

The Secret Service all during this Texas trip had been allowing photographers and newsmen, local press, as distinguished from the White House news contingent, to work very closely around the President and Mrs. Kennedy.

The Presidential couple went again to the fence railing in Dallas to greet the well wishers departing from the course marked out for them by Secret Service people, but, of course, President Kennedy had made something of a reputation as a man who liked to break a way and shake hands with well wishers and the crowds who came to see him.

These are some of the last closeup pictures taken of President Kennedy. He was literally mobbed as he and Mrs. Kennedy went to that fence railing at Love Field. The crowd at the Dallas Airport was to a large measure a young crowd. The teenage group which played such a prominant role in President Kennedy’s 1960 campaign.

Youngsters of the teen-age were very much in abundance at the airport.

 Mrs. Kennedy carried with her the entire time at the airport the roses that had been given to her.

Then the Presidential couple entered the open Lincoln Convertible in which they rode with Governor and Mrs. John Connally. Of course, Governor Connally also was shot in the convertible. In the convertible two Secret Service Agents driving it. Immediately behind them Governor and Mrs. John Connally of Texas and then in the rear seat the President and Mrs. Kennedy.

The plan in Dallas was to go from the airport with a rather slow motorcade so that everyone would have a chance to look, applaud, and take pictures of the President and Mrs. Kennedy. To go along Lemmon Street which was one of Dallas’s main streets, then cut over to Main Street and go down to Main Street after circling through the down town area out to the Trade Mart where the President was due to make a speech.

This is the convertible which the President was riding when he was shot.

Now this is one of the overhead walkways and railroad trestles under which the Presidential car had to go. At first it was thought that the assassin’s bullet might have been fired from one of those walkways or railroad trestles, but the current most popular theory is that the assassins bullet was fired from the upper story of a building. Interesting statement. This was the scene in  down town Dallas as the Presidential motorcade went rather slowly by. As you can see the crowd is 10, 12 and  14 lines deep. It was nefariously estimated that between 200 and 300 thousand persons had turned out to greet President Kennedy.

Now why does Dan Rather say nefariously? At least that is what it sounds as if he is saying.

Nefarious means iniquity or abominable.

Is Dan Rather hinting at the meaning of this eventual Coup caused by

lust for power or is he jealous of the huge turnout Kennedy received

or is he artfully referring to 

Nefertiti

The reason I am suspicious is because of the

Temple of Dendur

“The Temple of Dendur (Dendoor in nineteenth century sources) is a temple that was built by the Roman governor of Egypt, c, around 15 BC and dedicated to IsisOsiris, as well as two deified sons of a local Nubian chieftain, Pediese (“he whom Isis has given”) and Pihor (“he who belongs to Horus“).[1] The temple was commissioned by Emperor Augustus of Rome and has been exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York since 1978.”

Relocation

“The Temple of Dendur in its original location. Drawing by Henry Salt.

The temple was removed from its original site (modern name: Dendur, ancient name: Tuzis, about 80 kilometers south of the town of Aswan) in 1963 in order to save it from being submerged by the construction of the Aswan High Dam.[1] In recognition of the American assistance in saving various other monuments threatened by the dam’s construction, Egypt presented the temple and its gate as a gift to the United States of America, represented by – among others – Jacqueline Kennedy, in 1965.”

“On April 27, 1967, the temple was awarded to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where it was installed in the Sackler Wing in 1978. Inside the Sackler Wing, designed by the architects Kevin RocheJohn Dinkeloo, and associates, a reflecting pool in front of the temple and a sloping wall behind it, represent the Nile and the cliffs of the original location. The glass on the ceiling and north wall of the Sackler is stippled in order to diffuse the light and mimic the lighting in Nubia.”

From her apartment windows in New York City she had a splendid view of a glass enclosed wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art which displays the Temple of Dendur. This was a gift from Egypt to the U.S. in gratitude for the generosity of the Kennedy administration, who had been instrumental in saving several temples and objects of Egyptian antiquity that would otherwise have been flooded after the construction of the Aswan Dam.[10]

Here is a Time Magazine article link about the Temple of Dendur called

A Little Bit of Egypt on Fifth

by Sophy Burnham

“And so it was that the U.A.R. found itself donating an ancient Egyptian temple to the most Jewish city in the world perhaps outside of Tel Aviv. The State Department with inimitable timing cabled Cairo of the Committee’s decision just as the Arab-Israeli war broke out. But the U.A.R  kept it’s bargain. On May 25th it confirmed the gift.”

and the consequences of it’s presence in America.  

Please read :

JacQueline Kennedy and then Came Lot

Down the Main Street Canyon of Dallas. The President riding in an open top convertible.

He and Mrs. Kennedy frequently looking up to wave to persons who took positions in the high buildings.

As you can see the welcome was enthusiastic and warm.

It was from this kind of window that the assassins bullet is believed to have been fired.

Although these particular pictures are further down town than the scene where the actual shooting took place.

Then the shots rang out, the Presidential motorcade speeded up.

The President was rushed immediately to Parkland Hospital.

This is the rear entrance to the hospital through which the Presidents car was brought.

There are the roses Mrs. Kennedy had been carrying.

Although, these roses are yellow and she was carrying red roses so who knows why Dan Rather says that when he knows that she was carrying red roses, not yellow and even comments on the red roses at the airport earlier. Dan Rather knows more than he is letting on and why he would say the last bit about the roses is deceptive.

They were on the floor. It had gotten there in the car as Mrs.Kennedy put the head of her mortally wounded husband on her lap.

This is the interior of the convertible.

Which of course it’s not since Lady Bird was given yellow roses so it must have been the car which carried LBJ and his wife!

What really gets me is that Dan Rather knows that and yet is playing some kind of stupid game.

Perhaps trying to make someone notice, who knows.

Dallas Law Enforcement Officers, and Secret Service men, along with Congressman Jim Wright, Democratic Senator Ralph Yarborough, were all on hand at the rear of the hospital. The Law Enforcement people and the Secret Service men kept photographers, newsmen, and the curious, as far away from the rear of the hospital as they possibly could.

Congressman Wright there in a moment of grief.

A large crowd gathered at Parkland Hospital as word spread that the President had been shot. There was considerable disbelief at first that he had actually been shot. Some thought he simply had taken ill. This is the new and modern Parkland Hospital with some of the best facilities in this part of the country to which the President was taken after he was shot. This is the ambulance that carried the President in moving away. A tight security guard was placed around the automobile. There are some of the aides and one or two doctors I believe rushing into the hospital.

Senator Ralph Yarborough who was one of the last  to see President Kennedy arrive gave reporters some early details.

These were long moments at Parkland Hospital as everyone waited for word on- how is the President. Hospital sources gave this report of the arrival at the Emergency  Entrance to the hospital and I quote from the hospital. The President was lying motionless in the car. Mrs. Kennedy was leaning over him, holding him. Governor Connally was leaning back in the seat holding his stomach. Both men were covered with blood.

Inside the Emergency room witnesses said the First Lady splattered with blood entered without a word. Mrs. Kennedy reportedly held up very well inside.

She was heard only to say : “Jack Jack No No.”

Even regular hospital attendants were barred admittance into the Emergency Room as a bevy of doctors worked frantically over President Kennedy. At the same time this scene was going on at Parkland Hospital all around town Police, Sheriff’s Deputies, and Secret Service men were following every possible lead, every possible clue in an effort to come up with some kind of lead to the assassin.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 32) 

A film of mostly Parkland Hospital and The School Book Depository Building in Dallas

with Dan Rather 

Governor Yarborough after checking inside in the Emergency Room came out and told reporters that he simply didn’t know whether the President was still alive or not. The Washington Press Corps and newsmen in general were, of course, pressing for some kind of word, some kind of detail. Things began to get crowded despite police efforts there at the rear of the hospital, the Emergency room.

At the moment these pictures were taken it was known that the President was in serious, perhaps critical condition. It was not known that he was dead. All around the hospital the faces of the crowd that gathered told the story.

This is part of the motor entourage which I believe brought two Roman Catholic Church priests to the hospital.

The crowd now has gotten the word. Word has been received that President Kennedy is dead.

There were some others wounded at the scene of the shooting. They were brought in much later.

Who is he talking about and how does Dan Rather know this. He is speaking in the past tense.

————

Very shortly after it was announced that the President had died a local ambulance pulled up to the hospital and about the time it did arrive to carry the body of the President away, the President Kennedy away, Presidential Press Assistant Malcolm Kilduff held a press briefing and made the announcement that the President was officially dead. He also explained the seating arrangement in the automobile in which the President had taken part in the motorcade along with Governor and Mrs. John Connally. This was the seating arrangement the Secret Service the two Secret Service men in front the Connallys in the middle the President and Mrs. Kennedy in the rear. President Kennedy was sitting on the right hand side as you looked on to that car from the top side. The shot apparently was fired from about one block away from what is believed to have been a 30-caliber weapon.

The crowd outside the hospital got larger about the time the Presidential party and the body of President Kennedy left Dallas’s Parkland Hospital. Police continue to stand guard over the convertible which had brought the blood splattered Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Connnally to the hospital. The latest word on Governor Connally is that he is in serious, but not critical condition.

Here it is being explained to some members of the crowd, they have to get further back. Here are some grief stricken members of the Presidential party. Mrs. Kennedy rode out in an ambulance the curtains drawn. The body was taken immediately to Dallases Love Field where it was put aboard the Presidential plane Presidential One.

Here is the Roman Catholic Father who administered the last rites, Oscar Huber. Father Oscar Huber of Holy Trinity Church in Dallas and one of the other Fathers at Holy Trinity Church. They were the two Catholic Priests who administered the last rites.

The Holy Catholic Trinity Church is located at 3811 Oak Lawn Ave.

Was this man also in one of the cars in the parade? 

———————

There were stares of disbelief as the body of the President rode away. All afternoon many Dallasites kept saying,

“it just can’t be true.”

Looks like Charles Stanley  above of In Touch Ministries (evangelical) who happened to have obtained his Masters of Divinity

from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Fort Worth, Texas about the time of the assassination! 

The other man on the right looks like Eddie Barker! Kind of a shady looking feller with a hat on.

Talk about propaganda Geeeeeeeeez

President’s personal secretary and Mrs. Kennedy’s secretary leaving the hospital at about the time the body left.

The ambulance that carried the body of President Kennedy out to the airport.

The motorcade, of course, was very small:  the ambulance, three cars, and some police motorcycle escorts. Was a bronze coffin in which the body of the President was placed inside that ambulance.

Police, in the meantime, had ringed the building from which the shots were to believe to have been fired. This is the building about a block from Houston and Main in Dallas. Police had  heard reports that a man with a gun had been seen at on the fourth or fifth floor of that building so they immediately circled the building, heavily armed Police and Sheriff’s Deputies. Had an inch by inch, foot by foot search was made of the building and also of the surrounding neighborhood.

A number of suspects were picked up in the early minutes after the shooting. Some of those picked up were simply people officers thought might have some information on the shooting, not people who the police thought actually did the shooting.

For about a half an hour law enforcement officers thought they might have the assassin trapped in the building. One employee of the building was later picked up as a suspect and is still in custody. At the time these pictures were filmed the police thought they might have the assassin still inside that building.

As mentioned earlier not only the building, but a three or four block area was sealed off. From one of those open windows perhaps came the shot that killed President Kennedy.

Man pointing i.e. in charge. (I think)

The man facing the camera is the spittin’ image of Dr. William H. Dickenson Jr. long time server of God pastor of Highland Park Methodist Church who gave his word and the “Benediction” at the Trade Mart, and lays the blame for the death of President Kennedy on the audience attending! Yet he is with the sheriff and at the School Book Depository seemingly in control of the investigation. I guess he wears two hats. That sheriff who is walking with him was the man in the garage basement when Lee Harvey Oswald was assassinated by Jack Ruby, supposedly.

Below is what he said at the Trade Mart!

“There are no words to express what we’re feeling. 

We are all conscience of the fact that we face an issue and some responsibilities as citizens today 

which we cannot face without the strength and the wisdom and the patience of our God.

Will you bow your heads?:

Draw near us o God

and sustain us with thy presence

and grant unto us wisdom, strength, courage to live

in keeping with thy law and to live as free men. 

Aye Men”

This Event is a religious conspiracy!

At least six and possibly as many as one dozen arrests were made in the confusion and frantic searching that followed the shooting.

Secret Agents, Police, Undercover Police, Secret Service or just some men holding this man by the arms as if arresting him. Looks like serious business, but a few moments later that same man seems to be very at ease and smiling and their grasp seems to have loosened.

Gee, this looks a bit contrived!

—————————————————–

This warehouse building is located a block from the Houston and Main intersection where the President was shot.

This is the motorcade route area. This is the kind of neighborhood in which the shooting occurred. Police and detectives here are chasing some other people that they wanted for questioning in connection with the shooting.

Then downtown at a theater Police arrested a man after a Dallas Policeman was shot.

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

The man was brought immediately to Police Headquarters as were all of those arrested. That man said to have been an employee of the building from which the shot had believed to have come. Let me emphasize that no charges have been filed against anyone in connection with the case.

Oswald on elevator with other men. He is looking back at his smiling friend behind him!

———————————-

This is Judge Sarah T. Hughes, a woman Federal District Judge. She is the woman who gave the oath of office to now President Lyndon Johnson after the shooting of President Kennedy.

I guess she was summoned although she is wearing a big corsage on her shoulder.

Was she a guest at the Trade Mart luncheon?????

She is wearing a polka dot dress.On the right she looks horrified as if hearing the news for the first time!

“She is the only woman in U.S. history to have sworn in a United States President, a task usually executed by the Chief Justice of the United States….”

In 1935, she accepted an appointment as a state judge from Governor James Allred for the Fourteenth District Court in Dallas, becoming the state’s first woman district judge. In 1936 she was elected to the same post. She was re-elected six more times and remained in that post until 1960.

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy appointed her to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas. She was the first woman to serve as a federal district judge in Texas…..”

LBJ called Irving Goldberg from the plane and asked, ‘Who can swear me in?’ Goldberg called me, and I said, ‘Well, we know a federal judge can.’ Then I got a call from the President’s plane, with the command ‘Find Sarah Hughes.’ Coincidentally, Judge Hughes, Jan [Sanders’ wife] and I [Sanders] were supposed to go to Austin that night for a dinner for President Kennedy. I reached her at home and said, ‘They need you to swear in the Vice President at Love Field. Please get out there.’ She said, ‘Is there an oath?’ I said, ‘Yes, but we haven’t found it yet.’ She said, ‘Don’t worry about it; I’ll make one up.’ She was very resourceful, you know. By the time she got to the airplane, someone had already called it into the plane. We quickly realized that it is in the Constitution.


Judge Sarah T. Hughes here is going directly to the plane at Love Field where the Presidential Oath was administered to Lyndon Johnson.

Later life

“…Hughes was a member of the three-judge panel that first heard the case of Roe v. Wade; the panel’s decision was subsequently affirmed by the Supreme Court of the United States. She retired from the active federal bench in 1975, though she continued to work as a judge with senior status until 1982.

A close friend of Lyndon Johnson and his family, Hughes participated in his inauguration in 1965,

took part in the book-signing of Lady Bird Johnson‘s White House memoirs,

and participated in the dedication of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum.

Here is a PDF of an interview of Sarah T. Hughes from the

LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON LIBRARY ORAL HISTORY COLLECTION

(Hughes talking about the oath of office given to LBJ.)

…..”Well, I knew that Barefoot had the oath by then, but I said “Well, I know what the

oath is.”  So in place of calling him I went on up the ramp.  And somebody, I don’t know

who it was, met me and I then said “I don’t need the oath of office; I know what to say.”

But in just a moment somebody handed me a copy of the oath.  I understand that someone

had telephoned to the Attorney General and had gotten a copy of the oath.  I wasn’t told

that but anyway I was handed it.

F: Barefoot didn’t dictate it to someone.

H: No, he didn’t dictate it.

And then somebody handed me a book and said

This is a Catholic Bible…..”

The Attorney General of the USA was Robert Kennedy, President Kennedy’s brother.

The Attorney General of Texas was Will Reid Wilson.

On the PDF linked above Sarah T. Hughes was appointed through as Federal Judge because of a bill that Robert Kennedy wanted passed,
at least

so says LBJ:

….”Now I didn’t know this until later.  As a matter of fact, President Johnson told me 

this story.  Attorney General Kennedy took some bills up to Mr. Rayburn having to do

with the Department of Justice that he wanted passed, and Mr. Rayburn said, “I’ll see that

these bills get passed if you will recommend the appointment of Sarah Hughes……”

Wade had already been appointed.

Interesting coincidence when Robert Kennedy was assassinated a woman was seen and heard wearing a polka dot dress and a funny nose by several people. However I wouldn’t say that Sarah T. Hughes has a funny nose, but she is wearing a polka dot dress. 

Roe v. Wade

This is the plane carrying the body of President Kennedy from Dallas to Washington.

Dan Rather licking 10:10/10:12

What is the deal with the licking?  It is apparent that the CBS reporters are trying to communicate something!  

Maybe they can’t control their tongue cues?

CBS News and JFK Parts (Second to Nun) Parts 33-35

  

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 33)

Dan Rather: The final speech of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was made this morning to a breakfast meeting of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. This was that speech:

Edit of some kind :….The United States


 Thank you.

 I know uh now why everyone in Texas Fort Worth is so thin having uh gotten up and down about uh 9 times. That’s what you do every morning. Mr. Baulk, Mr. Vice President, Governor Connally, Senator Yarborough, Jim Wright, Members of the Congressional Delegation, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Attorney General, Ladies and Gentlemen.

Two years ago I said that uh introduced myself in Paris by saying that

I was the man who had accompanied uh Mrs. Kennedy to Paris.

I’m getting that somewhat that same sensation uh as I travel around uh Texas. 

Nobody wonders what Lyndon and I wear.

Everyone is laughing hysterically..

I’m glad to be here in uh Jim Wright’s city. About uh 35 uh …….

About uh 35 years ago a Congressman from California, just been elected, received a letter from an irate constituent which said uh during the campaign you promised to have the Sierra Madre mountains reforested. You’ve been in office for one month and you haven’t done so. Well, no one in Fort Worth has been uh that unreasonable, but in some ways he has had the Sierra Madre mountains reforested and uh here in Fort Worth he’s contributed to it’s growth. He speaks for Fort Worth and he speaks for the country. And I don’t know any city that’s better represented in the Congress of the United States than Fort Worth. And if there are any Democrats here this morning I’m sure you won’t hold that against him.  

Three years ago last September I came here and uh Vice President and spoke at uh Burke Burnette Park. I called that speech for National Security Policy and a National Security System which was second to none. A position which said not first but, if, when, and how, but first. That city responded to that call as it has through its history and we have been putting that pledge into practice ever since.

And I want to  say a word about that pledge here in Ft. Worth, which understands National Defense and it’s importance to the security of the United States.

During the days of the Indian War this city was a fort. During the days of WWI, even before the United States got into the war, Royal Canadian Air Force Pilots were training here.

During the days of WWII the Great Liberator Bombers on which my brother flew with his co-pilot from this city were produced here.

First nonstop flight around the world took off and returned here in a plane built in factories here.

The first truly Intercontinental Bomber, the B-36, was produced here.

The B-58 which is the finest weapon system in the world today, which it demonstrated most recently in flying from Tokyo to London with an average speed of nearly a thousand miles per hour is a Ft. Worth product….?

 The Iroquois Helicopter from Ft. Worth is a mainstay in our fight against the guerillas in South Viet Nam.

The transportation of crews between our missile sites is done in planes produced here in Fort Worth.

 So where ever the confrentation

 (sounds like he says confrentation, concentration, con-swen-tration)

 Either he is slurring his pronunciation of the word

because of some drug

or there is another meaning that 

he is imputing as in POSSESSED!

may occur and in the last 3 years it’s occurred at least 3 occasions:

in Laos, Berlin and in Cuba and it will again. Where ever it occurs the products of Ft. Worth and the men of Ft. Worth provide us with a sense of security.

And in the not too distant future….. And in the not too distant future a new Ft. Worth product…. And I’m glad that there’s a table separating Mr. Hicks and myself….. a new Ft. Worth product:

the TFX, Tactical Fighter Experimental.

  Nobody knows what those words mean, but thats what they mean.

Tactical Fighter Experimental will serve the forces of freedom and will be the number one airplane in the world today. 

There’s been a good deal of discussion of the long and hard fought competition to win the TFX contract, but very little discussion about what this plane will do. It will be the first operational aircraft ever produced that can literally spread its wings through the air. It will thus give us a single plane capable of carrying out missions of speed, as well as distance; able to fly very far in one form or very fast in another. It can take off from rugged short airstrips, enormously increasing the Air Forces ability to participate in limited wars.

The same basic plane will serve the Navy’s Carriers saving the taxpayers at least one billion dollars in cost if they build separate planes for the Navy and the Air Force. The government of Australia by purchasing 125 million dollars of TFX planes before they are even off the drawing board has already testified to the merit of this plane and at the same time it’s confident in the ability of Ft. Worth to meet it’s schedule.

In all these ways the success of our National Defense depends upon this city in the Western United States 10,000 miles from Viet Nam, 5 or 6,000 miles from Berlin, thousands of miles from trouble spots in Latin America and Africa or the Middle East. And yet Ft. Worth and what it does and what it produces participates in all these great historic events. Texas as a whole and Ft. Worth bear a particular responsibility for this National Defense Effort. For military procurement in this state totals nearly one and a quarter billion dollars; fifth highest among all the states of the union.

There are more military personnel on active duty in this state than any in the nation, save one, and it’s not Massachusetts. Any in the nation save one where they…. where they combine military civilians defense payroll of well over a billion dollars.

I don’t recite these for any partisan purpose, they’re the result of American determination to be second to none (NUN or No man).

Please read:

Salute No Man

And as a result of the effort which this country has made in the last three years, we are second to none (NUN or No man).

Please also read:

Tell No Man

In the past three years we have:

•Increased the defense budget of the United States by over 20 percent.

•Increased the program of acquisition for Polaris Submarines from 24 to 41.

•Increased our Minuteman Missile Purchase Program by more than 75 percent.

•Doubled the number of Strategic Bombers and Missiles On Alert.

•Doubled the number of Nuclear Weapons available in the Strategic Alert Forces.

•Increased the Tactical Nuclear Forces deployed in Western Europe by over 60 percent.

•Added 5 Combat Ready Divisions to the Armies of the United States and 5 Tactical Fighter Wings to the Air Force of the United States.

•Increased our Strategic Air Lift Capability by 75 percent and •increased our Special Counter Insurgency Forces which are engaged now in South Viet Nam by 600 percent.

I hope those who want a strong America and place it on some signs will also place those figures next to it.

This is not an easy effort. This requires sacrifice by the people of the United States. But this is a very dangerous and uncertain world.

As I said earlier on 3 occasions in the last 3 years the United States has had a direct confrontation.

***************

No one can say,

or when it will come again.

No one expects,

****************

uh that uh our life will be easy, certainly not in this decade, and perhaps not in this century. But we should realize what a burden and responsibility the people of the United States have borne for so many years. Here a country which lived in isolation, divided and protected by the Atlantic and Pacific, uninterested in the struggles of the world around it; here in the short space of 18 years  (since 1945) after the second world war we put ourselves by our own will and by necessity into a defense of alliances with countries all around the globe.

On 3 occasions in the last 3 years (1960-1963), he says that we had direct confrontations, but I don’t remember the confrontation with Berlin.

Obviously, another confrontation was about to occur.

I think that was a hint from JFK,

END

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

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 34)

•Without the United States SouthViet Nam would collapse over night.

•Without the United States the SEATO Alliance would collapse overnight.

•Without the United States the SENTO Alliance would collapse overnight.

•Without the United States there would be no NATO and gradually Europe would drift into neutralism and indifference.

•Without the effort of the United States and the Alliance For Progress the Communist advance onto the mainland of South America would  long ago have taken place.

So this country which desires only to be free, which desires to be secure, which desires to live at peace, for 18 years under 3 different administrations has borne more than its share of the burden,

Has stood watch for more than its number of years.

I don’t think that uh we are fatigued, or tired. We would like to live uh as we once lived, but history will not permit it. The Communist balance of power is still uh strong. The balance of power is still on the side of freedom. We are still the keystone in the arch of freedom and I think we will continue to do as we have done in our past: our duty, and uh the people of Texas will be in the lead.

So I’m glad to come.

I’m glad to come to this uh state which has played uh such a significant role in so many efforts in this century. And to say that here in Ft. Worth you people will be playing a major role in the maintenance of the security of the United States for the next 10 years. I’m confident as I uh look to the future that our chances for security, our chances for peace, are better than they’ve been in the past and the reason is because we’re stronger. And with that strength is a determination to not only maintain the peace, but also the vital interests of the United States.

 To that great cause Texas, and the United States, are committed.

Thank you.

end of JFK’s Speech

Apparently,

JACKIE LIKED THAT SPEECH!

                                                                                                               ALOT!

Does JFK look okay in the picture on the left?

or does he look like something is wrong ….

I think he looks upset.

Because

She or whatever it is

is controlling him!

DEVIL’S BREATH FLOWER

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

Do you see the pretty white flowers?

EERILY SIMILAR PHOTO OF JFK. I find it very odd!

I THINK THIS SHOT WAS TAKEN IN MIAMI A WEEK OR SO BEFORE THE PICTURE ABOVE IT.

HE IS WEARING A BOW TIE AND A REGULAR TIE IN THE PICTURE ABOVE AND BELOW THIS PICTURE IN FT. WORTH.

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

President Kennedy appears to be wiping his eyes from crying

(which is not a normal reaction….something else is going on)

and away from Jackie Kennedy

and then laughs at the presentations given to him.

Mr. President, your visit with us in Ft. Worth today, the things you have said have refreshed and renewed our appreciation of your great leadership and courage.

You have brought rain to moisten our pastures and our fields.

You have brought sunshine in our hearts

We know, we know that you don’t wear a hat.

 HERE ARE 2 PICTURES OF JFK WEARING A HAT.
IT’S POSSIBLE, IT’S POSSIBLE THAT DR. GRANVILLE WALKER AND/OR HIS WIFE DIFFER
THAN THE AVERAGE MAN BY THE MEANING OF
‘WEARING A HAT’. )

AFTER ALL THEIR MOTTO IS:

TOO BAD YOU NEED TO USE DRUGS ON UNSUSPECTING HUMANITY  TO ACHIEVE THOSE CHANGES! WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE EFFECTS OF THE DRUGS DISSIPATE? DO YOU THEN KILL TO COVER UP THE DECEPTION?

OBVIOUSLY, THERE IS A BETTER WAY THAN THAT!)

We couldn’t let you leave Ft. Worth without providing you with some protection

against the rain. 

JFK REPLIES:                  

 -I’ll put it on in the uh White House

on Monday

 if you’ll come up there,

you’ll have a chance to see it,

then.

Another hint from JFK?

Was there an event scheduled for Monday that the public isn’t aware of?

That was the day of his funeral!

Was he aware of that?

That uh that Texas hat is presented to you by our Washer Brothers,

one of the oldest men stores in Texas.

And to protect you against global enemies in the manner you are protecting this nation against our foreign enemies and to keep the rattlesnakes on Vice President Johnson’s ranch from striking you, we wanted to present these this pair of boots. We won’t ask you to put them on ….here. The boots are presented by Mr. John Justin, former Mayor of Ft. Worth, manufacturer of the most walked about boots in the world. 

And Mrs. Kennedy, as you ride to the hounds or walk to the rattlesnakes,

(She did do that, didn’t she!)

we want you to have protection, too. 

Boots, I think.

Gives her a box! 

Before the Benediction

I’d like to present Mrs. Granville Walker, the wife of Dr. Granville Walker, who will

Announce the Benediction.

Mrs. Granville Walker.

No woman stands up so I guess I should assume he is Mrs. Granville Walker,

however there was a break in the film so could be she did her introduction in the break not shown.

JFK licks

After Dr. Walker

Gives the Benediction

we’ll ask that  you please remain seated

until the President and Mrs. Kennedy have made their exit.

Dr. Granville Walker.

Dr. Walker takes the podium.

– Let us be in the spirit of prayer. The Lord bless all nations with a desire for peace. The Lord bless our own beloved nation with rectitude and prosperity and grant us to achieve justice for all within it. The Lord bless our President and all in places of responsibility with wisdom and with health equal to their tasks. And now the Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord lift up his countenance upon you and be gracious unto you. The Lord cause his face to shine upon you and give you peace both now and forever.

Aye—-men.

Uh, gee did this mantra help anyone

that day?

Though it sounds real pretty.

……….A little while later JFK goes to Dallas

and he is assassinated by Jackie Kennedy………..

with the help of some religious leaders, the press, the witnesses, and many more.

 AT LEAST, SOW IT SEEMS

It does seem like this is occurring as if back then and also now.

Back to Walter Cronkite

Lee H. Oswald the 24 year old man whom Dallas Police say is a prime suspect in the assassination of President Kennedy was questioned for 6 hours at the Dallas Police Station this evening. He was arrested shortly after the assassination and has been under questioning ever since. But as he was lead from the interrogation room upstairs in the Dallas Police Station perhaps reporters say for booking, he said to reporters, “I don’t know anything about this. I haven’t done anything.”  Apparently he is still denying any  knowledge of the assassination.

Oswald’s arrest uh resulted from a theater cashier’s tip, Mrs. Julie Postal, telephoning Police from the Texas theater that a man inside looked like he was running from someone, and that was just 45 minutes after the shooting. The theater 3 miles away from shooting scene. She said he kept changing seats in the theater. The police by this time were frantically searching the city for the killer, of course, and two officers raced to the theater and in through a rear door. One of them opened fire. Oswald had a snub nosed 38 pistol on him and he shot, too. It’s not clear who fired first, but Officer J. D. Tippit was shot dead and police say that Oswald’s pistol killed him.

Oswald as we said was local Chairman of the pro Castro Fair Play For Cuba Committee. He went to Russia in 1959 saying he was relinquishing his United States Citizenship. He returned last year complaining that he was disillusioned. Whether or not he ever actually did get Soviet citizenship is not clear. But he did marry while in Russia and is said to have one or two children. His wife is in this country with him and was taken to the Police Station this afternoon, also.

Oswald worked in the building where the murder weapon- a German made Mouser Rifle was discovered. Oswald has been active in propaganda activities as

Bob Jones from Station WWL TV in New Orleans reports.

cuts to film showing Oswald passing out leaflets

Obviously, Oswald was on their radar screen early on.

-This is Lee H. Oswald in October 16th in New Orleans when he was handling out hand bills for the Fair Play For Cuba Committee in front of the International Trade Mart. New Orleans Police know Oswald well. On August 9th he was arrested for disturbing the peace by creating a scene on the cities Main Canal Street by also distributing these hand bills. He resided in an apartment here from May 9th until August 20th when he slipped out in the middle of the night without having paid his rent. The apartment manager said he was quiet and talked to no one. They found several of these pamphlets lying around the apartment after he had left. This is Bob Jones WWL-TV in New Orleans.

END.

That was short!

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

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 35)

By strange coincidence since 1840 beginning with Benjamin Harrison over our last 8 Presidents who assumed office on the even years two decades apart have died in office. And of the nations 35 Presidents, 4 have died of assassins bullets. President Lincoln in 1865, and Garfield in 1881, McKinnley in 1901, and John F. Kennedy today. In this century 4 Vice Presidents have moved up to the highest office in emergencies: Theodore Roosevelt succeeded President McKinnley. Calvin Coolidge in August 1923 succeeded Warren Harding who died of a stroke. In April 1945 Harry Truman took the Oath of Office following Franklin Roosevelt’s death at Warm Springs, Georgia. And today Lyndon Johnson took the oath aboard an Air Force jet liner at Dallas, Texas. For a report on the man who is our new President, here is Eric Severeid.

Eric Severeid reads his propaganda and it seems to be the exact monologue he read before .

-Walter on this day of misfortune (clears throat) perhaps some measure of comfort can be taken from one circumstance: This time the successor to an assassinated President is a man of first rank ability. This was not so when Abraham Lincoln died, although some historians disagree about Andrew Johnson. It was not so when Garfield died and was succeeded by Chester Arthur. It was so when McKinnley died and Theodore Roosevelt became the President, and it’s so again. Lyndon Baines Johnson is no throttle-bottom, no political accident. He is 55 years old. He’s in the prime of life for the responsibilities of the Presidency at a point where a man’s experience and his energies meet at a high mutual level. Johnson was born in Texas near the hamlet called Johnson City where the family flag flies over the LBJ ranch. He’s a lawyer by education, a politician by instinct and by great success. sticks out tongue 1:59/10:50.

                 It was not so….. It was not so…. It was so…… and it’s so again.  SOWHAT?

I’m sorry but this is soweird.

He was a very young age of Franklin Roosevelt during the New Deal Days. He worked on the Youth Project. He first went to the House of Representatives in 1937. He was only 29 years old. And there in the House he became the personal protege of Sam Reaper a great Texan who ran the House as Speaker longer than any man in our history including Henry Clay. licks 2:21/10:50 Johnson went to the Senate in 1949 winning in Texas by a tiny majority of just 87 votes. And he became, without much doubt, the most effective Majority Leader in the whole story of the Senate. Sticks out tongue. 2:34/10:50. His energy there was prodigious. he lived in a whirl of activity. He put most Senators in his personal debt by one kind of service or another. His fame became great in Washington itself during the years of Republican rule under President Eisenhower. His power then as Senate Leader was greater by far than it has been since in the Vice Presidency. sticks out tongue 2:55/10:50. Johnson was called a liberal by instinct, and intellect, a conservative by geography. His political alliances in Texas were with the more conservative Texans who have managed that state for a good many years. But in most national matters he was regarded as progressive including on the matter of civil rights. Again, this was in the pattern and the image of his patron Sam Rayburn. He is a fairly wealthy man his family holdings, some in the name of his wife Lady Bird include television stations, as well as the ranch. sticks out tongue 3:26/10:50. In 1955, when Johnson was making a visit to the uh Virginia Farm of Mr. George McGhee another Texan our ambassador to Germany, Mr. Johnson felt ill. He thought it was acute indigestion. Senator Clinton Anderson of New Mexico was present and he said at once, “You’re having a heart attack.”  Mr. Johnson was taken to a hospital where he slowly recovered. sticks out tongue 3:48/10:50. 

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

In part one of this series Frank McGeehee is mentioned by Eddie Barker reporting at the Trade Mart who said  that Frank McGeehee was the leader of the National Indignation Convention a group of extreme rightists here tried to interrupt the uh ambassador. I sort of think he is connected somehow to Ambassador McGhee. Here us that same snippet from that section:

Is Frank McGeeHee related to Ambassador McGhee?

Former German Chancellor Considered Buying East Germany

“For Erhard, the issue was more than a theoretical scenario, as several dossiers and transcripts from US diplomats show. In confidential discussions with the US ambassador in Bonn, George McGhee, the German chancellor spoke of

a “necessary sacrifice” or a new gesture.”….

“……The Christian Democrat wanted to entice the communists on the other side of the Iron Curtain with enormous sums of money. His closest confidante, Chancellery Chief of Staff Ludger Westrick, even went so far as to name them at a dinner with Ambassador McGhee on Oct. 21, 1963: Loans of perhaps $2.5 billion a year for 10 or more years, or approximately 100 billion deutsche marks at the currency exchange rate at the time…”

George Crews McGhee, 93, Oil Prospector and Diplomat, Dies

“…..With the arrival of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s administration, Ambassador McGhee returned to the oil business but was recalled as a consultant to the National Security Council and as a member of the president’s commission on the military assistance program.

President John F. Kennedy appointed him counselor to the State Department and head of its policy planning council. During the Cuban missile crisis he was under secretary for political affairs, the No. 3 job in the department……”

Was the sacrifice President Kennedy?

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

Back to Eric Severeid hyping the Talents of Lyndon Johnson:

For some time after that his strength was diminished. He told his reporters once on Monday mornings I’m full of fire by Wednesday night I’m all tired out. But all this changed. His full strength came back and in recent years he has demonstrated his old energies in a daily whirl of activities including a great many trips around this country and abroad. sticks out tongue 4:09/10:50. He is now personally acquainted with virtually all of the world leaders of President Kennedy was acquainted with, including Mr. Kruschev. His grasp of domestic politics is very great at the general and intellectual level and at the practical working level of this total human machinery that makes our rather cumbers (def:to hinder, to slow, to weigh down) system work.

His fierce fight against Mr. Kennedy for the Democratic Nomination in 1960 seems only yesterday. But his great prestige in Washington, at that time, was not matched by his prestige in the country at largeSo it was a tremendous struggle right down to the final hours of the convention. Mr. Kennedy chose Johnson to be his running mate partly because he had to have strength in the Southern states. Johnson was the one man who could conciliate the Southern Conservatives. And this he did. In fact, there were many later on who said that Mr. Kennedy owed his election to Mr. Johnson. In any case, Johnson became the President’s Lieutenant in full fidelity (adjusts his glasses) not only in his public actions, but in his private talk. sticks out tongue 5:15/10:50. But he began to fade from the national consciousness as Vice President, as most Vice Presidents under an energetic President are bound to do.

When the president, President Kennedy died today, both he and the Vice President were engaged behind the scenes in trying to settle the feud within the Texas Democratic Party between the Johnson Connally forces and the liberal forces led by Senator Ralph Yarborough. And now all that which does seem so petty in retrospect, all that doesn’t matter very much. Mr. Johnson is the President. Texas is his personal political base in its totality. Well, when the sorrow of today begins to fade and when the President has been laid to rest the machinery of the national government will take up again. And again Americans will think ahead not only as to what lines of policy and action the new President will follow, but also after a while to the election of next year. Mr. Johnson will be nominated at the Democratic Convention next August, if he wishes it and I think most observers tonight would predict that he will wish it. All estimations as to the outcome of the election itself a year from this November, of course, are right now without meaning. That election like the course of this great country itself lies with faith and with the continuing nature of the times (takes off his glasses) and of the world itself. Now, Walter.

Very Smoooooth!

Back to Walter Cronkite.

Dallas, Texas a name and a place that bore the romance of the great oil state and its almost legendary wealth in an instant, in the flash  of an assassin’s bullet, has been saddled with an unwanted memory. The mayor of Dallas is Earl Cabell. He is with Eddie Barker in our KRLD-TV Studios in Dallas right now.

——————–

Eddie Barker folds his arms leans over his table and speaks.

Walter, I think that uh most Dallasites feel at this hour, as I do, still in a state of shock. But as the grim reality takes hold that in our town the President of our United States could be gunned down by a fiend, I shutter and feel sick in the pit of my stomach. And Dallas feels that way, too. For as  you know, Dallas is not that kind of town. To Easterners who come here they often say wha this is sort of a little New York. It’s known as the town in the Southwest with the culture. It’s had a lot of problems with its extreme elements, but uh this is something today that certainly has this town shocked. Mayor Earl Cabell who was in that Presidential Parade today and was only a cars length away when the President was shot. Mayor?

-Eddie, what you say about Dallas is true. Dallas has been proud and it has been known as a friendly, as a gracious city. And that is what has added so much to the shock of what happened today. Along 12 or 14 miles of the route of the caravan, the parade, it was so obvious the friendliness, the warmth that was just coming from all of those people. Never in all of my life and I’ve lived in Dallas all of my life. I’ve ridden in dozens of parades, but never have I seen such multitudes, such thousands on the street. And never have I seen such enthusiasm, such warmth that expressed themselves and that was so spontaneous as the cars passed. And then almost at the end of that route for those shots to ring out and with the realization as to what was going on even before we realized what had actually happened. Uh Eddie  the shock of it uh is just unbelievable and and it hadn’t been two minutes prior to that that we had been talking to Congressman Roberts of Mckinney of this tremendous ovation that had greeted the President uh and then, of course, the rest is history.
Eddie speaks
Mayor, we’ve uh had some bad light shed on this city of ours in the past few weeks what with the incident here and not too long ago when Adlai Stevenson was hit with a sign and spat upon and now the uh President of the country is assassinated here. Uh. What uh, what is Dallas going to do?
-Well I, I cannot ascribe that to being the feeling of the true Dallas citizen or the preponderance of Dallas citizens. That, those people represent only a handful of the radical right and uh I don’t ascribe criminal tendencies to them. Possibly, uh they might have incited a a lower grade of brain to have committed an act like this, but I I can’t point my finger. This is no time to point fingers. This, this is a time of of prayer and sober reflection. Uh, we all have to search our souls with reference to what we might have said or done uh to have brought about a calamity of this sort.
Eddie speaks
Mayor, I would uh think that the feeling is that in the broad moral sense, at least, that all of us share in what has happened here today, but this city uh you say is not a city where things like this are done. The minority, it’s a loud one, and today uh this tragic thing that happens really once in a life time.
-This is a guilt that doesn’t belong to a few, this a guilt of of the nation. We’re all responsible for this.
Now, it is our nation that is guilty in the assassination of President Kennedy!
How about the trigger person or the thing in the car sitting next to President Kennedy with an extra long right arm and smoke and heat rising from the weapon she/he/it was holding? 
Why do they seem to look everywhere else to lay the guilt?
WHY ARE THEY PROTECTING THE REAL ASSASSIN?
Eddie Barker obviously knew Jackie Kennedy was responsible implicit in his comments with Dan Rather,
 so why is he playing this guilt game?

CBS News and JFK (The Great White Way) Parts 37-38

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.

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.

End

Picture of flag at half mast.

CBS News and JFK (Stepping Stones and Mars) Part 47

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 47)

Less than 3 months ago Mr. Kennedy was interviewed by Walter Cronkite and he warned then that the dispute between Buddhists and government in South Viet Nam

imperiled the effectiveness in the war against the Viet Cong Communists:

JFK: I don’t think that uh unless a greater effort is made by the government to win popular support they the war can be won out there. In the final analysis It’s their war. Their the ones that have to win it or lose it. We can help them.We can give them equipment. We can send our men out there as advisors,but they have to win it, the people of Viet Nam against the Communiusts. We’re prepared to continue to assist them, but I don’t think the war can be won unless the people support the effort. And in my opinion in the last two months the government has gotten out of touch with the people: the repressions against the Buddhists we felt were very unwise. Now uh all we can do is to make it very clear that we don’t think this is the way to win. Uh It’s my hope that uh that this will become increasingly obvious to the government. That they will take steps to try to bring back popular support for this very (essential? not sure what word he is saying, because it sounds like he says insentual which is not a word, in sensual , inessential, incendial…. Still essential fits and I think that is the word he is saying) struggle.

Walter Cronkite: Do you think that uh this government still has time to uh to

JFK: Yea (nodding)

Walter Cronkite: regain

JFK: I do

Walter Cronkite: the support of the people?

JFK: With changes uh in policy and uh perhaps with uh and personnel. I think it can.

If it doesn’t uh make those changes I would think the chances of winning it would not be very good.

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

CBS News is taking a look tonight at the career of our dead President from time to time if there is no news either from Washington or from Dallas we will switch to those places to keep you up to date.

Two years ago Mrs. John F. Kennedy took the American public on a personally conducted tour of the White House.

Her husband appeared briefly at the conclusion of the tour to talk with Correspondent Charles Collingwood about the work his wife had done in the Executive Mansion.

————————————–

Charles Collingwood: Mr. President. (JFK shakes hands with Charles Collingwood and enters room)

Well, Mrs. uh

(Charles asks a private question to Mrs. Kennedy but not sure what it is that he says something

or someone else does in earshot of the interview. It sounds like the person says Does he know?)

I am suspicious he is under the influence of drugs in this interview! (like Devil’s Breath which appears was on the table in the flowers at the breakfast in Fort Worth before he was assassinated. They had had a trip to Columbia in his term but not sure why. Drugs, Diamonds? The man she eventually married was a shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis and Devil’s Breath is where the drug for sea sickness comes from. Aristotle Onassis would know that. Not sure that JFK would have known. Charles Collingwood seems to know  and so I guess that is how we have the press we have today. The Press, the Clergy, the mob and Jackie Kennedy Onassis involved with many more in JFK’s dementia and other activities. I guess that may be why we can’t get the straight scoop about anything these days, because the press was taken over by ass holes.

JFK was worth about 100 million, but not sure of the worth of Aristotle Onassis, (spiritually nothing) but he was wealthy.

 

Mrs. Kennedy has been showing us about the White House

and uh all the changes she’s made therein.

What do you think of the changes that she’s made?

 JFK: Well, I think the great effort she made has been to uh bring us much more intimately in contact with all the men who lived here.

And after all uh history is people and uh particularly the great moments of our history ….Presidents. So when we have as we do today Grant’s table, Lincoln’s bed, Monroe’s gold set all these uh make these men much more alive. So I think it makes the White House a stronger panorama really of our great story.

Charles Collingwood: Do you mind living in a house that has as many visitors as this one has?

JFK: Well, last year we had the largest in history which I think shows that the White House

is uh becoming more and more important to the American people.

Over 1million 300 thousand people passed through our (JFK breakes out and laughs a bit uncontrollably) home. But uh I’d like to see that number double this year. And what is particularly interesting is that at least two-thirds of them were young boys and girls at school. I have always felt that American history is uh sometimes uh dull subject uh so much emphasis on dates, but I think if they can come here and see uh alive this building and the in a sense touch the people who’ve been here then they’ll go home more interested and I think that uh they’ll become better Americans and uh some of them may want to live here themselves which I think uh would be very good. Even the girls. (laughs again)

Charles Collingwood: Well, certainly there’s a great deal for them to see.

Do you, living here as you do, have the same lively sense of the past and of history of those of us who visit this house do?

 JFK: Oh yes I think even more because of over at the Executive Wing which you didn’t visit which Theodore Roosevelt designed I sit at a desk which was given by Queen Victoria to President Hayes which is used by many of our Presidents and the whole atmosphere touches the lives of these men who led our nation in very difficult times. Of course, I think if anyone comes to the White House as a President desires the best for his country but I think he does receive stimulus from the knowledge of living in close proximity to people who uh are legendary but uh who uh actually were alive and were in these rooms.

Here is the you tube of that explanation for the renovation by Mrs. Kennedy where her voice becomes Marilyn Monroe. This is commented on by a woman whose husband dated Jackie Kennedy before she was a Kennedy. I don’t really understand why JFK goes a bit hysterical, but I think it is a clue to his state of mind. I am not really sure it is really him. In fact, the White House renovation seems to have affected the both of them. She acts like a robot in this you tube …..or an alien. Kind of like that movie where the White House is taken over by extraterrestrials.

MARS ATTACKS

He was known to take a lot of drugs for his condition. No telling what they gave him. I get the feeling she actually was in control.

She was playin’ soft, but he was just her tool. I think she controlled him through those drugs

and he fell for it,

and eventually he became a liability

to her “ascension”.

I don’t think she wanted to be married to a writer….his goal after the Presidency.

He was her stepping stone and a stepping stone for others under her care:) such as the Press, Diplomats, etc

That is why she showed so little respect for the brother that died in WWll before she had met him,

Saying he lacked imagination.

HOW DID SHE KNOW ABOUT HIS IMAGINATION?

PRETTY WICKED WOMAN!

It is cute, their act, but I think that is just what it is …..AN ACT!

Otherwise how do you explain the rest of the story?

She murders him and blames them

whoever they are. 

OBVIOUSLY IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE….ANY OF IT

INCLUDING THE LICKING AND TONGUE CUES!

MAYBE A SIGN OF WEAKNESS OF BETRAYAL

 LIKE A FRENCH KISS

OR A NEW FORM OF ALIEN COMMUNICATION? STILL TRYING TO GET THE MEANING OF THEIR HABIT

A Tour of the White House with Mrs. John F. Kennedy – Feb. 14, 1962 (1/6)

 

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

An unrewarding and even to begin an assessment of John Kennedy on the day of his death partly because the country really hadn’t made up it’s mind about him when he was killed. His image as a president was not yet clear. Objective men who knew him indicate that perhaps it was not yet clear even to him. He was a a man who admired greatness and courage. Many people believed he had the first and almost everyone knew he had the second. But he also admired the doers, the practical man of statecraft who leave accomplishments as a monument and in this area he had had some problems maybe because neither the world nor the nation is very susceptible to statecraft these days. This much is true: on at least two occasions when the slightest slip from grace or courage or strength could have brought either war or disgrace to this nation John Kennedy’s grace and courage and strength were any all anyone of us could have prayed for. If he did not live long enough to leave a clear picture there were details of greatness that will live as long as there is an American nation. Among the things that we know that Mr. Kennedy was was the first real master of the English language to be President since Abraham Lincoln. He was eminently quotable, adaptably witty. He once said,” It has been recently suggested that whether I serve one or two terms in the Presidency I will find myself at the end of that period at what might be called the awkward age, too old to begin a new career too young to write my memoirs.” Death has made that remark ironic, but of course, death is always the great ironist. That is the kind of thing John Kennedy appreciated for he was an intellectual who at times seemed detached and watched himself. The horror that happened today is something he must have imagined at one time or another. It would have been a very real dream to that sensitive intelligence, but an irrelevant one to that vibrant courage. As any writer who is also a President does, as Lincoln did, John Kennedy wrote his epitaph a dozen times.

Maybe his most widely remembered remark came in that first and last inaugural address:

“And so my fellow Americans ask not what your country can do for you.

Ask what you can do for your country.”

It has been commonly accepted in all states and all cultures of man that what John Kennedy did for his country today is the most that a man can do.

His sacrificial answer to his own question

would seem to give the question substantial new meaning for the rest of us.

YES WHO GAINED FROM THAT SACRIFICE  THAT HE UNKNOWINGLY AND ABSENT-MINDEDLY OFFERED?

WHO ELSE WAS THE INTENDED VICTIM,

MAYBE THIS WHOLE EVENT WAS NOT ABOUT JFK

MAYBE HE WAS A SHILL LIKE BILLY GRAHAM WHO GOT OUT-SHILLED BY A BETTER  SHILL

Kind of interesting since reading just recently in the news about what Abraham Lincoln’s wife she said to a doctor after Abraham Lincoln had been shot:

“Do what you can do. Do what you can do.”

something to that effect anyway. It is not a direct quote because at the moment I’m too lazy to look it up but I had noticed the quote changed in two different press releases, but they were similar.

I get the feeling history repeats itself. Like we are in a loop and each loop is relative to the next.

We have been taking a discursive look at the career of John Kennedy.

We will now proceed to catch up with the news, what there is tonight.

And first let’s go to Dallas, the scene of the crime and CBS News Correspondent Dan Rather:

The investigation into the death of President John Kennedy and the possibly related death of a Dallas Policeman is continuing at this hour and at Dallas Police Headquarters this is the scene. This is 24 year old Lee H. Oswald who lives in Irving a suberb of Dallas. He has been undergoing questioning since mid afternoon in connection with the shooting in downtown Dallas shortly after the shooting of President Kennedy of a Dallas Policeman. Oswald has been charged with the shooting of the Dallas Policeman. The fatality of the Dallas Policeman. A crowd of newsmen have been at Police Headquarters since Oswald has been there awaiting a possible break in the case. This is the scene in the corridor and occasionally police officers try to get the newsmen to stand back against one wall but it’s been almost an impossible job.

That would be because the corridor is jammed full of people. Just not enough room to stand against one wall.

The policeman holding the door IS the same policeman that was behind President Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy

at the airport in Dallas where Jackie is doing something odd

and the crowd is laughing and pointing at whatever it is that she is doing. 

As a crowd of approximately 200 newsmen are on hand. Police say that in addition to charging Oswald with the death of the Dallas Policeman they also are questioning him connection with the fatal shooting of President Kennedy and the wounding of Texas Governor John Connally. Oswald is only 5 feet 9 inches tall. He weighs just 160 pounds. You cannot see him in this shot, but we should catch a glimpse of him soon. He answers the description of a young man sighted at the book depository building from which the shot which killed the President was believed to have been fired. Now here is the gun that police say was used to kill the President. That’s an Italian made rifle. We’ll have a close look at it in just a moment.

Here’s Oswald at the Police Station. He is saying there, ” I did not do it. I did not do it.”

In just a moment we expect to have sound videotape from Police Headquarters with Oswald saying those things himself.

Now we’ll take a closer look at the gun

(9:48/10:47) Dan Rather licking.

Is this what Newsmen do frequently?

Are they taught to lick a lot?

that police say was used to kill the President today.

The gun is an Italian made high powered rifle 6.5 millimeter which police tell us is roughly the equivalent of a 30-caliber rifle. It’s the rough equivalent of the kind of rifle that United States soldiers carry. It has a four power telescopic sight on it. The shot which killed the President is believed to have been fired through that gun at a range of approximately 100 yards which is not a long range for this kind of a weapon.

Deer season is open in Texas and that kind of gun at 100 yards would knock a full-sized deer completely off his feet.

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

Happens to be 6:16 time-wise on the clock.

Just in case you are not aware 616 and 666 are antichrist numerals.

It has been said that the number was actually 616, not 666 . Just thought I would add that info because it was coincidental)

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

Police refuse to say whether they have any fingerprints from that weapon as yet.

(notice the man has his hands

all over the rifle without gloves etc AND not maintaining the integrity

of the evidence in his hands)

The man in the hat

rather looks a lot like an older Dan Rather.

They also refuse to say whether they have taken any ballistic tests on the weapon as yet.

Officer on the right looks like the Dan Rather as he looked  20 or 30 years later.

CBS News and JFK (Freedom of Man) Parts 44-46

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 44)  

The Kennedys frequently went to church as a family group. These pictures were taken when they attended Easter services in Palm Beach. And the President brought both children to the hospital at Otis Air Force Base to see their mother after the death of Patrick. That was not long ago. Mrs. Kennedy has just begun to make public appearances following a period of mourning and a vacation abroad.

The President and the children also went to the airport to meet Mrs. Kennedy

after her recent return from that vacation in Greece.

The one that she met Onassis and he kissed her hand and gave her red roses? That one?

Red roses she found to be strange to be given in Dallas on her arrival the day she received a lamb chops puppet that she hid in those red roses. 

Both Mrs. Kennedy and the President

said all along part of their main job was to be parents.

The President always seemed to enjoy it.

One of the last times that father and son were together

was when the President went to Arlington

to lay a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns.

John went along, but stayed behind at the car

fascinated by the uniforms and salutes of the military.

————————————————

With the coming to power of Fidel Castro in Cuba the spectra/specter (not sure which is said but both seem to fit) of Communism was raised only 90 miles from our own shores.

What is funny about that is Arlen Specter who worked on the Warren Commission and became a senator

 was also the first to offer the one bullet theory for the death of JFK

looks eerily similar to Oswald. That is my opinion!  

Less than 4 months after John Kennedy took office an assault was mounted on Cuba in the predawn hours of April 17th, 1961. Anti-Castro rebels landed on the swampy beaches of Las Villas Province. The attack was directed by the Cuban National Revolutionary Council which was based in the United States. Cuban forces beat off the attackers. The Debacle became known as The Bay of Pigs Disaster. Kruschev blamed the Kennedy Administation. Mr. Kennedy blamed security leaks and breaches of secrecy for the disaster.

Kennedy’s speech:


“If the Press is awaiting a declaration of war before it imposes the self discipline of combat conditions then I can only say that no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of clear and present danger then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent. This deadly challenge imposes upon our society two requirements of direct concern both to the Press and to the President. Two requirements that may seem almost contradictory in tone but which must be reconciled and fulfilled if we are to meet this national peril. I refer first to the need for far greater public information and second to the need for far greater official secrecy. And I hope that every group on America unions and businessman and public officials at every level will ask the same question of their endeavors and suffer their actions to this same exacting task. I have no intention of establishing a new office of war information to govern the flow of news. I am not suggesting any new forms of censorship or new types of security classifications. I have no easy answer to the dilemma that I have posed and would not seek to impose it if I had one. But I am asking the members of the newspaper profession and the industry in this country to reexamine their own responsibilities to consider the degree and the nature of the present danger and to heed the duty of self restraint.”

The trouble over Cuba kept reoccurring until it led to a direct showdown with the Soviet Union, but that wasn’t for another year and half in October of 1962.

In between there was that other recurring difficulty that seemed so often to bring the United States and Russia to swords point.

That of course is Berlin. The trouble over Berlin predated the Kennedy Administration and lingers still.

In July of 1961 President Kennedy took the stand on the question:

“Our response to the Berlin crisis will not be merely military or negative. It will be more than merely standing firm. For we do not intend to leave it to others to choose and monopolize the forum and the framework of discussion. We do not intend to abandon our duty to mankind to seek a peaceful solution. As signers of the UN Charter we shall always be prepared to discuss international problems with any and all nations that are willing to talk and listen with reason. If they have proposals, not demands, we shall hear them. If they seek genuine understanding, not concessions of our rights, we shall meet with them. We have previously indicated our readiness to remove any actual irritants in West Berlin, but the freedom of that city is not negotiable. We cannot negotiate with those who say “what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable” but we are willing to consider any arrangement or treaty in Germany consistent with the maintenance of peace and freedom and with legitimate security interests of all nations. We recognize the Soviet Union’s historical concern about their security in Central and Eastern Europe after a series of ravaging invasions and we believe arrangements can be worked out which will help to meet those concerns and make it possible for both security and freedom to exist in this troubled area. For it is not the freedom of West Berlin which is abnormal in Germany today but the situation in that entire divided country. If anyone doubts the legality of our rights in Berlin we are ready to have it submitted to International Adjudication. If anyone doubts the extent to which our presence is desired by the people of West Berlin compared to East German feelings about their regime we are ready to have that question submitted to a free vote in Berlin and if possible among all the German people and let us hear at the same time from two and one half million refugees who have fled the communist regime in East Germany voting for Western type freedom with their feet. The world is not deceived by the communist attempt to label Berlin as a hotbed of war. There is peace in Berlin today. The source of world trouble and tension is Moscow, not Berlin. And if war begins it will have begun in Moscow and not Berlin…..”

Weird because of WWll.

Was the Soviet Union responsible for WWll? I thought the problem was Hitler and Fascism and now Nazism is overlooked? WHY?

This seems very strange! Or is Fascism a product of Communism?

I thought Fascism was a product of

fanatical

Synoptic Christianity!

Makes sense to me!

Please read :

Pope Benedict XVI and His Power of Suggestion

which ought to clear it up so that you may understand the relationship between Fanaticism of Synoptic Christianity

and it’s control over Islam and Roman Catholicism and many others.

—————————

The summer and fall of 1962 saw more concern about Cuba and the presence of Soviet Troops there. Some members of Congress notably Republican Senator Kenneth Keating of New York complained that the Russians were building missile installations which were a threat to our security. The decision regarding Cuba was too important to rush and President Kennedy waited until he was sure that indeed a serious threat did exist. Then at 7:00 o’clock on the night of October 22 President Kennedy took to a national radio and television and he stated the United States position clearly:

“….This government as promised has maintained the closest surveillance of the Soviet military buildup on the island of Cuba that a series of offensive missile sites is now in preparation on that imprisoned island. The purpose of these bases can be none other than to provide a nuclear strike capability against the Western Hemisphere. Acting therefore in the defense of our own security and of the entire Western Hemisphere and under the authority entrusted to me by the Constitution as endorsed by the revolu resolution of the Congress I have directed that the following initial steps be taken immediately:

First, to halt this offensive buildup a strict quarantine on all offensive military equipment under shipment to Cuba is being initiated. All ships of any kind bound for Cuba from whatever nation or port will if found to contain cargo from whatever nation or port (some kind of glitch and repeats) will if found to contain cargoes of offensive weapons be turned back. This quarantine will be extended if needed to other types of cargo and carriers. We are not at this time however denying the necessities of life as the Soviets attempted to do in their Berlin Blockade of 1948.”

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 45)

Second, I have directed the continued and increased close surveillance of Cuba and its military buildup. The foreign ministers of the OAS in their communique of October 6th rejected secrecy in such matters in this hemisphere. Should these offensive military preparations continue thus increasing the threat to the hemisphere further action will be justified. I have directed the armed forces to prepare for any eventualities. And I trust in the interests of both the Cuban people and the Soviet technicians at the sites the hazards to all concerned of continuing this threat will be recognized.

Third, it shall be the policy of this nation to regard any nuclear missile launched from Cuba or against any  nation in the Western Hemisphere as an attack by the Soviet Union on the United States requiring a full retaliatory response upon the Soviet Union.

==================End of that speech================

The President liked to take time to talk and philosophize about his office. Just about a year ago he sat in his famous rocking chair and talked on television with reporters from the

3 networks.

 Q: As you look back on your first 2 years in office sir has your experience in the office matched your expectations? You had studied a good deal the power of the Presidency; the methods of it’s operation. How has this worked out as you saw it in advance?

JFK: Well, in the first place I think the problems are more difficult than I imagined they were.

Secondly, there’s a limitation on the ability of the United States to solve these problems.

We uh are involved now in the Congo in a very difficult situation. We’ve been unable to secure implementation of the policy which we supported.We are involved in a good many other areas. We are trying to see if a solution can be found of the struggle between Pakistan and India with whom we want to remain friends, with whom we want to remain friendly relations if they are unable to come to an agreement. There is a limitation in other words upon the power of the United States to bring about solutions. I think our people get awfully impatient, and uh maybe fatigued and tired…..we’ve been carrying this burden for 17 years. Can we lay it down? We can’t lay it down. I don’t see how we can lay it down in this century. So that uh I would say that the problems are more uh difficult than I imagined them to be. The responsibilities placed upon the United States are greater than I imagined them to be and there are greater limitations upon our ability to bring about a favorable result than I had imagined them to be, And I think that is probably true of anyone who becomes President because there is such a difference between those who advice or speak or legislate and be tr between the man who must uh make select from the various alternatives proposed and say that this shall be the policy of the United States. It’s much easier to make the speeches than it is to finally make the judgements, because uh unfortunately your advisors are frequently divided and if you take the wrong course and on occasion I have, the President bears the burdens, the responsibility, quite rightly. The advisors may move on to new advice.

Q:  Well Mr. President that brings up a point that’s always interested me. How does a President go about making a decision like Cuba for example?

JFK: The uh most recent one was hammered out really our policy and decision over a period of uh 5 or 6 days. During that period the 15 people more or less who were directly consulted frequently uh changed their views uh because uhwhatever action we took had so many disadvantages to it and each action that we took raised the prospect that the it might escalate with the Soviet Union into a Nuclear war. Finally however I think a general consensus developed uh and certainly seemed after all alternatives were examined that the course of action that we finally adopted was the right one. Now uh when I talked to members of the congress several of them suggested a different alternative when we confronted them on that Monday with the evidence. My feeling is that if they had gone through the 5 day period we had gone through at looking at the various alternatives the advantages and disadvantage of action they probably would have come out the same way that we did. I think that we took the right one. If we would have had to act on the Wednesday in the first 24 hours I don’t think probably we would have chosen as prudently as we finally did: A quarantine against the use of Offensive weapons.

In addition uh that had much more power than we first thought it did because uh I think the Soviet Union was very reluctant to have us stop ships which carried with them a good deal of their highly secret and sensitive material. Another uh….one of the reasons I think that the Soviet Union withdrew the IAL28s  was because we were carrying on very intensive low level photography. Now no one would have guessed probably that that would have been such a harassment. Mr. Castro could not permit us to indefinitely continue wide spread flights over his island at 200 feet every day and he yet he knew if he shot down one of our planes it uh then it would uh bring back a much more serious reprisal on him.

So it’s very difficult to always make judgements here about what the effect will be of our decisions on other countries. In this case it seemed to me that we did pick the right one. In Cuba of 1961, we picked the wrong one.

Q: I’d like to go back to question of the consensus and your relationship to the consensus you have said and the Constitution says that the decision can be made only by the President. Now what was your relation to the consensus? Did you form no opinion until a consensus appeared or were you part of forming a consensus and had you disagreed with it? What then?

JFK: Well I think that uh well you know that old story about the Abraham Lincoln in the Cabinet he says “all in favor say Aye” and the whole Cabinet uh voted Aye and uh then all opposed no, and Lincoln voted No and he said “the vote is no.” So that uh naturally the Constitution places the responsibility on the uh President. There was some disagreement with the course we finally adopted, but the course we finally adopted had the advantage of permitting other steps if this one was unsuccessful. In other words, we were starting in a sense at the at a minimum place and if that were unsuccessful we could have gradually stepped it up until we had gone into a much more massive action which might have become necessary if the first step had been unsuccessful. I would think that the majority had finally come to accept that though at the beginning there was a much sharper division and after all this was very valuable because uh the people who were involved had particular responsibilities of their own≥ Mr. McNamara Secretary of Defense who therefore had to advise me on the military capacity of the United States in that area.  The Secretary of State who had to advice on the attitude of the OAS (The Organization of the American States) and Nato.  So that uh in my opinion the majority came to accept the course we finally took. Which made it much easier. The Cuba of 1961 the advice of those who were brought in on the Executive Branch was also unanimous and the advice was wrong so that uh and finally, and I was responsible. So it finally comes down that no matter how many advisors you have frequently are they are divided and the President must finally choose. The other point is something that President Eisenhower said to me in January of 19–  There is no easy matters will ever come to you as President. If they were easy they would be settled at a lower level. So the matters that finally come to as President are always the difficult matters the matters which carry with them large implications. So this contributes to some of the uh burdens of the uh the Office of the Presidency which other Presidents have commented on.

Just thought I would add this link for me later to try to read and for the whomever if interested:

13 Days in October

“The thirteen days marking the most dangerous period of the Cuban missile crisis begin. President Kennedy and principal foreign policy and national defense officials are briefed on the U-2 findings. Discussions begin on how to respond to the challenge. Two principal courses are offered: an air strike and invasion, or a naval quarantine with the threat of further military action. To avoid arousing public concern, the president maintained his official schedule, meeting periodically with advisors to discuss the status of events in Cuba and possible strategies….”

Here is another link:
The Organization of American States

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

 We’ve been considering the life and career of our dead President but meanwhile in Washington the government goes on. We’re going to interrupt this obituary now for a brief look at the news tonight we go to the White House and George Herman.

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

The President of the United States is in Washington but there’s no President at the White House tonight. President Lyndon Johnson worked most of the evening in his office the Executive Office Building the office assigned to him when he was Vice President of the United States before he became President. He left here about 20 minutes ago to return home. Mrs. Kennedy is  not here she is spending the night at Bethesda Naval Hospital where the body of her late husband is also resting.

Tomorrow, the body of the late President accompanied by Mrs. Kennedy will come here to the White House to Lie-In- Repose here in the White House tomorrow for members of the family to view and for members of the government. The following day on Sunday it will go to the United States Capitol where it will Lie-In-State in the Rotunda and there it will be viewed by the American public. There will be a ceremonial mass a pontifical mass by Rich in Richard Cardinal Cushing on Monday. And after that the burial arrangements which so far are private. Here in the White House tonight Sargent Shriver has been working on the funeral arrangements the President’s brother-in-law taking care of the melancholy last details of the late President of the United States. All else here at the White House is quiet. There is no further Presidential activity here. Only people trying to find out what is going to happen. What’s going to happen to President Johnson. What’s going to happen to the United States. And what is the next order of business at this home of Presidents. This is George Herman at the White House returning you now back to Harry Reasoner.

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

John F. Kennedy’s life was brief and busy. Now prematurely that life has been comit.(tape goes silent no sound for a few seconds) Something probably purposefully omitted. (sound returns) 

and to stick by it’s pledge to insure the freedom of the continent.

Wherever he went his reception was enthusiastic but no where more so then in the divided city of Berlin.

  (man in black adjusts his hat

and it seems to be a symbolic gesture of some kind)

Not sure of the meaning of the gesture, but it is in this you tube presentation

and I suspect the meaning has to do with

Human Rights and Freedom…

German, Roman, American, African, Jewish, women hopefully

(notice below that when addressing the crowd he says Ladies)

That is my conjecture.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 46)

These people had reason to cheer for Mr. Kennedy for in their eyes he was the mainstay between the freedom they enjoyed in West Berlin and the Russian directed domination of the Eastern Sector. The President had this to say at the Berlin Wall:

Thank you. Ladies. I am proud to come to this city as the guest of your distinguished mayor

who has symbolized throughout the world the fighting spirit of West Berlin

and I am proud (huge applause and yelling) and I am proud to visit the Federal Republic

with your distinguished Chancelor who for so many years has committed Germany

to democracy and freedom and progress

and to come here in the company of my fellow American, General Clay who (huge applause by crowd)

who has been in this city during it’s great moments of crisis and will come again if ever needed.

 (huge applause by huge crowd)2000 years ago.

2000 years ago the proudest boast wars

Civis Romanus sum

today in the world of freedom the proudest boast is Ish?/ich? bin ein Beeleener

(by sound not by german spelling 2:13/10:49)

Huge applause

———————————————-

“Civis Romanus sum (pronounced Cīvis Rōmānus sum) (Classical Latin: [ˈkiːwɪs roːˈmaːnʊs ˈsʊm],

 I am a Roman citizen) implied, in a wide sense, all the rights and duties associated with the status of Roman citizenship.[1]

The Christian New Testament states that Paul of Tarsus, imprisoned and on trial, claimed his right as a Roman citizen to be tried before Caesar, and the judicial process had to be suspended until he was brought to Rome.[2][3]“

“The locution was quoted by Lord Palmerston when called to explain his decision to blockade Greece. In his speech in the Houses of Parliament on June 25, 1850 he claimed that every British subject in the world should be protected by the British Empire like a Roman citizen in the Roman Empire.[4][5]

In 1963, the phrase inspired the American president Kennedy to proclaim “Two thousand years ago the proudest boast was civis Romanus sum.

Today, in the world of freedom, the proudest boast is “Ich bin ein Berliner“.”

———————————————

The place where JFK gave the speech was called

Rathaus Schöneberg

Rathaus Schöneberg is the city hall for the borough of Tempelhof-Schöneberg in Berlin.

From 1949 until 1993 it served as the seat of the Abgeordnetenhaus of Berlin and until 1991 also as the office of the Governing Mayor.


There are many people in the world who really don’t understand, or say they don’t,

what is the great issue between the free world and the communist world.

Let them come to Berlin.

Huge applause

and

end of speech

——————————————————–

After that speech the President went to the wall.

JFK with Bridadier General ………and Secret Service Agent Roy Kellerman.

CBS News Correspondent Daniel Schorr was there with him.

…accompanied by Brigadier General ….he’s the commander of the Berlin Light Brigade. The President climbs up on a platform again for a better look into East Berlin. A better look than he had at The Brandenburg Gate.

The Brandenburg Gate

Obama to Speak at Brandenburg Gate in Berlin

Pretty strange.   Probably mocking the assassination of JFK in his way because he  is crazy and vindictive. Susan Rice’s  potential new post as National Security Advisor is another mock.

Obama has personality defects that are disgusting and he delights in it.

Berlin 1961 by Frederick Kempe

As he mounts the platform he can be seen better and so the cheers rise but most of the people around here are news

people. Those who are cheering are cheering from windows.

Near Check Point   Charlie

Here a close up shot of the Communist barriers, the VoPos, the East German Communist police, with their binoculars want to see from their side too. And on the other side you can see the East Berliners who in spite of everything have come forward knowing the President would be there. There on the corner beyond where East Berliners gathered they wanted to see President Kennedy too. Afraid or not allowed to come any closer. The President stands and just looks. It is an amazing sight. And probably thinks as many others have thought of (not sure if thought of is what is said because garbled but it sounds like it) to come here you have to see it to believe it.

With him General Chester Clifton his military aide.

And there back again looking into East Berlin and see the cluster of East Berliners who have gathered who cannot look over that wall but know that the President is on this side. A remark of, probably a sarcastic remark, about the East Germans from Chancellor Adenauer. We were not allowed to have any microphones at this point. It would be fascinating to know what this conversation was between the President and the Chancellor and the Mayor.

Only recently on the other side of the wall just last week and probably in preparation for President’s visit here the Communists announced a 100 yard strip prohibited to anybody. This prevents any East Berliners coming any closer than 100 yards. One thing the Communists would have hated to see was a series of escapes while the President was here. The perceived blow to them of the President’s visit is already batting up so that Kruschev will be back in East Berlin the day after tomorrow ostensibly to celebrate the birthdate of his puppet  Walter Ulbricht  70th birthday. And the President comes down now from the platform. He has seen the Check Point Charlie which he’s worried about these 2 years.  A place where time (garbled) a war could break out. A place where American and Russian tanks confronted each other and now at last he’s seen it.

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

Berlin 1961

Kennedy, Khrushchev and the most dangerous place on Earth

The East German puppet pulls the Soviet strings

 

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

That tour with the Chancellor Adenauer was shortly before the old man’s retirement. It would not have been likely that if anyone had predicted at that time that he would outlive President Kennedy.

If the President had to face up to momentous problems overseas he certainly had his problems at home. One of the constant nagging issues domestically was the old one of Equal Rights. Like President Eisenhower before him President Kem Kennedy demonstrated his determination to carry out Federal Court Orders in the entry o f Negro James Meredith into the University of Mississippi.

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

50 years later, Medgar Evers’ widow feels anger anew

 

Then on June 12th of this year the nation was shocked by the murder of Negro Leader Medgar Evers.President Kennedy spoke compellingly of the meaning of that murder:

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

We are confronted primarily with a moral issue.

It is as old as the scriptures

and it is as clear as the American Constitution.

The heart of the question is:

Whether all Americans are to be afforded Equal Rights and Equal Opportunities.

Whether we are going to treat our fellow Americans as we want to be treated.

If an American because his skin is dark cannot eat lunch in a restaurant open to the public.

If he cannot send his children to the best public school available.

If he cannot vote for the public officials who represent him.

If, in short, he cannot enjoy the full and free life which all of us want,

then who among us would be content to have the color of his skin changed and stand in his place.

Who among us would then be content with the counsels of patience and delay.

One hundred years of delay have passed since President Lincoln freed the slaves, yet their heirs, their grandsons,

are not fully free.

They are not yet free from the bonds of injustice.

They are not yet yet freed from social and economic oppression.

And this nation for all it’s hopes and all it’s boasts will not be fully freed until all it’s citizens are free.

We preach freedom around the world and we mean it. And we cherish our freedom here at home, but are we to say to the world, and much more importantly to each other, that this is the land of the free except for the negroes. That we have no second class citizens, except negroes. That we have no class or caste system, no ghettos, no master race, except with respect for negroes.

Now the time has come for this nation to fulfill its promise.

The events in Birmingham and elsewhere has so increased the cries for equality that no city, or state, or legislative body can prudently choose to ignore them. The fires of frustration and discord are burning in every city north and south where legal remedies are not at hand. Redress (I think that is the word he is saying because it fits for that time, however regress seems to be occurring at this same time, as both seem to be occurring nowadays kind of like one of Newton’s laws of motion) is sought in the streets in demonstrations, parades, and protests which create tensions and threaten violence and threaten lives.

We face therefore a moral crisis as a country and a people. It cannot be met by repressive police action. It cannot be left to increased demonstrations in the streets. It cannot be quieted by token moves or talk. It is a time to act in the Congress in your state in local legislative body and above all in all of our daily lives.

It is not enough to pin the blame on others to say this is a problem of one section of the country or another, or deplore the facts that we face. A great change is at hand and our task, our obligation, is to make that revolution, that change, peaceful and constructive for all.

Those who do nothing are inviting shame, as well as, violence. Those who act boldly are recognizing right, as well as, reality.

End

Pretty amazing that it had been one hundred years since the freedom of the slaves

to JFK’s speech about the assassination of Medgar Evers.

Emancipation Proclamation

Henry Louis Stephens, untitled watercolor (c. 1863) of a man reading a newspaper with headline “Presidential Proclamation / Slavery”.

“The Emancipation Proclamation is an executive order issued by United States President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, during the American Civil War using his war powers. It was not a law passed by Congress. It proclaimed the freedom of slaves in the ten states then in rebellion, thus applying to 3.1 million of the 4 million slaves in the U.S. at that time. The Proclamation immediately freed 50,000 slaves, with nearly all the rest (of the 3.1 million) freed as Union armies advanced. The Proclamation did not compensate the owners, did not itself outlaw slavery, and did not make the ex-slaves (calledfreedmen) citizens.[1]

On September 22, 1862, Lincoln issued a preliminary proclamation that he would order the emancipation of all slaves in any state of the Confederate States of America that did not return to Union control by January 1, 1863. None returned, and the order, signed and issued January 1, 1863, took effect except in locations where the Union had already mostly regained control. The Proclamation made abolition a central goal of the war (in addition to reunion), outraged white Southerners who envisioned a race war, angered some Northern Democrats, energized anti-slavery forces, and weakened forces in Europe that wanted to intervene to help the Confederacy.[2]

Slavery was made illegal everywhere in the U.S. by the Thirteenth Amendment, which took effect in December 1865.”


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


Just recently I wrote a post I hope you will read:

Pope Benedict Says “Faith was the True Enlightenment”

“With regard to material things, our knowledge and our technical accomplishments

are legion,

but what reaches beyond,

the things of God and

the question of good,

we can no longer identify,”

Benedict added, saying that faith was the “true enlightenment.”

Seems like there is a conversation in time and some of the answers and tests are occurring

there and back again. 


Then there is Rosa Parks not mentioned:

Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (February 4, 1913 – October 24, 2005) was an African-Americancivil rightsactivist, whom the U.S. Congress called “the first lady of civil rights”, and “the mother of the freedom movement”.[1]

On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake‘s order that she give up her seat to make room for a white passenger. Parks was not the first to resist bus segregation. Others had taken similar steps in the twentieth century, including Irene Morgan in 1946,

Irene Morgan

Sarah Louise Keys in 1955, and Claudette Colvin nine months before Parks, but NAACP organizers believed that Parks was the best candidate for seeing through a court challenge after her arrest for civil disobedience.

 I thought Jane Pittman was a real person, but she was a fictional character.

Funny, because of the business about the death of Officer Tippit

in the aftermath of the assassination of JFK

is quite a mystery in itself.

 

Was he fictional too?

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

Speaking of fiction I’m looking forward to

CBS News and JFK (Reasonable Men) Parts 48-51

Parts 48-51

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?

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 (Tommy Lee Jones, Lee Oswald) Parts 52-53

 Tomorrow there will be a final hour

for the public to pay there final respects to the President

before the President leaves Capitol Hill for the last time.

The last soldier milit…

(Harry Reasoner in New York interrupts this program)

We are now switching to Dallas where they are about to move Lee Oswald and where there is a scuffle in the Police Station.

Someone says: Has been shot. Lee Oswald ……We’re gonna (…..garbled calm chatter by reporters.)

Switch now. (Yelling in the scuffle.)Police police are pulling.

We’re going to switch now to Bob Hoffhacker down in the placement of the Court house who is close to the scene. Go ahead, Bob.

(Bob :In a very southern accent) The situation now is now that Lee Harry 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. 

(All the reporters are talking to their respective listeners so many are talking at once but saying different things, but the guy leaning down crouched  in front is the one speaking to the camera) who looks eerily like John Cusack, the actor! Since there are so many other actor participants in this assassination and coverup.

I would not be surprised if it is John Cusack.

Why not? I’ve seen Amanda Plummer and many other actors that are a part of this National Tragedy even though they were

just kids at the time this occurred just like most of us. Somehow we are all involved as if it is evolving now. Anything is possible and since realizing the clergy’s role and particular clergy that I believe I have discovered acting in an evil manner in this assassination and occurring as other momentous deceptive religious events were and are now occurring that affect you which are extremely menacing to you and your loved ones and your fellow man and even your enemies. I have tried to share what I notice even as outlandish as it may sound.

But then back in the 40′s and 50′s actors were blackballed and seemed to be important enough to be blackballed. Obviously they can be used as a tool by some especially when it comes to propaganda but that doesn’t mean they hadn’t evolved in their response to these measures. Same goes for the clergy, newsmen, government officials and civilians propelled into this controversy.

It is a collision of sorts like “The Big Bang” or the collision I wrote about between “The synoptic gospels and the gospel of John.” It is obviously very important and should not be ignored.

Here is a good example :

Basil Christopher Butler OSB (7 May 1902–20 September 1986), was a convert from the Church of England to the Roman Catholic Church, a Roman Catholic priest, the 7th Abbot of Downside Abbey, one-time Abbot President of the English Benedictine Congregation, a bishop, an internationally respected scripture scholar,

a consistent defender of the

priority of the 

Gospel according to Matthew,

and perhaps the pre-eminent English-speaking Council Father at the Second Vatican Council

(Vatican II, 1962–1965).

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

Bishop Butler was at the airport in Dallas the day of the assassination

which I wrote about in the link below:

JFK and the Secret Service

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

Seems to me JFK’s funeral was based on this premise

of St. Mmatthew’s pre-eminence

and his funeral details were planned  by the government and Jackie Kennedy

as far as I know.

Probably Cardinal Cushing had a hand in it also.

Here is a post about inconsistencies in the Gospel of Matthew I hope you will read linked:

Prophecies of the Betrayal of the Son of Man

I guess if they can kill him at church they can kill him on the street was said or similar statement by him according to his Secretary Mrs. Lincoln.

Was he?

This is no small affair.

This is big business.

Whether it matters to you or not

it mattered to them

and it will affect you,

eventually. 

Wasn’t the Synoptic disciple Matthew also a Tax Collector?

Maybe this assassination and it’s cover-up, Vatican ll,  the Vietnam war

and everything else afterwards is merely about

tax exemption for churches

and money laundering through those churches.

Big Business, Banking, and the MOB,

but at who’s expense?

Or more importantly who really was Jesus of Nazareth?

Which gospel is telling the truth?

The Synoptics Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke

or the Gospel of John?

The following post compares the Synoptic Gospels about Jesus with the Gospel of John

which I hope you will read:

I hope again that the limits of time such as past, present, and future will not inhibit/limit you as a reader to believe

that you are a participant in this serious struggle,

even then, as strange as it is.

Who controls the past controls the future,

who controls the present controls the past.

George Orwell ‘1984’ (1949)

Who knows ….maybe that is true?

But I do know that this is important and it is not a waste of my time. 

The evidence has only recently been released to the public and in a trickle.

The government could not or did not handle the issues back in the sixties

and dropped the ball, maybe intentionally

and now it is up to us to try to understand

what did occur and by whom and why it matters.

By the way the government is supposed to be us.

So it is up to us to do something about it over and above the ridicule and derision

that is associated with the attempt.

And even though it is as perplexing as it is,

I hope you won’t ignore the possible consequences

and try to help as best you are able.

What you do or do not do

may actually have an effect on the outcome

back then, now, and later!


The …Oswald was moved immediately from the area. No one knows at this time where Lee Harold Oswald is

(but his comments seem to be dubbed not matching his lip movements like a very bad movie, but it was as it happened, supposedly.)

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 moving down now into the basement.

(Wow that was fast within seconds of the mass turmoil and he’s getting all this word. News does travel fast)

Here comes the ambulance and a Oswald will be removed now.

The ambulance is being pulled up in front of us here. Here someone has

Get back, back.

Okay Dave

Just get low okay. Okay  Okay Okay.

Pat can you move. Pat move just a little bit to your left.

We can see now that police are fending off newsmen in the basement in Dallas City Hall fending them off so that uh Lee Oswald can be taken to an ambulance which was just brought into the basement of the City Hall. Switching now to Bob Hoffhacker downstairs.

Oswald will be removed quickly outside and 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 unconscientious at this time now being moved in. He’s not moving. He’s in the ambulance now and attendants, police are quickly climbing in. They are now having to move the armored truck from the head of the basement entrance here.

This is the armored 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 is coming out the ambulance with Lee Harvey Oswald who was shot just a few minutes ago as he was being transferred to the uh from was planning to be transferred from the City Jail to the City uh City Police Department…..

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

We are back at headquarters in New York. We have..We got our tape. We have reracked the videotape that shows that

whole scene of confusion we will now roll it and you can see it as it happens:

 <——–About this time a car honks.

Photographer getting a good shot 

on the right of the snapshot..

Someone yells: 

Here he is.    There he is.

Then the shot is fired.

Obviously, whoever honked the car was signaling whoever shot the gun.

Right after the shot immediately this monologue occurs from some press person calmly

as if he already knows what is happening before it occurs reflecting in words what is occurring.

This is a basement for of the Dallas City Hall and that’s a scuffle on the basement floor. It seems to be …garbled

Then mayhem.

Policeman behind the man in a coat and hat tries to disarm him, I think.

Someone says: He has been been shot. Oswald has been shot. (Sounds like Hoffhacker)

Lee Oswald

We’re going to….Lee Oswald

Oswald has been shot.

switch now….

Police….

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

Harry Reasoner:

You have just seen the replay of the videotape of the actual shooting of Lee Oswald in Dallas. Now

we’re going back for live coverage they’re talking to the Police Chief down there now:

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

Someone asks:…..fired the shot. How many shots?

Someone says: Just one shot.

Someone says: Just one shot. Uh Now then just (garbled) Is the man upstairs in the cell?

Policeman: As far as I know he’s either in uh the jail or at Cpt. Fritz’s office. I would imagine he’s probably in jail.

Hoffhacker: Do you uh do you know this subject? Do  you know him? Have you seen him before.

Policeman: Yes, I do.

Hoffhacker: Is he from Dallas?

Policeman: Yes.

Someone says: Who?

Someone else says: He is?

Hoffhacker: Who is he?

Someone else asks a question but can’t tell you what it is because a few people are speaking at the same time.

Policeman answers: I couldn’t tell you.

Hoffhacker: Well you can’t release the name now but uh do you  know what kind of business he happens to be in?

Policeman: Uh, Bob, I I wouldn’t want to say.

Someone says: Right, okay.

Someone else a familiar voice says: Uh, did he have to be disarmed or did he give up?

Policeman: We had to disarm him.

Someone asks: Did he struggle?

Policeman: Uh as much as he could yes but…..

Disclaimer: This is a very chaotic scene, people speaking, yelling, and asking questions all  at one time so the order of Q and A in this interview transcription of the you tube is hindered by what is not heard but heard by the Police Officer. It is hard to know is some spots who he is answering or what question he is answering and the meaning of his responses which might be easily misconstrued.
The same goes for the scene in the garage when Oswald is killed. I guess that is why we need investigators to conduct a good report. I will check to see if the Police officer was interviewed by the Warren Commission as soon as I can.
======

Woman in background looks familiar. She looks like the woman at the White House who turns around when the name Shriver is mentioned in speaking about the kids in the report given by George Herman in Part 1maybe Part 2 of this series.  She also resembles the lady at the CBS News Studio in New York with  Walter Cronkite in the background smoking and seemed to be giving signals or trying to in

Part 1 and maybe Part 2 of this series. I will check on that soon.

=======

 Policeman on the left talking to reporters in the snapshot on the right

looks like Men in Black star Tommy Lee Jones

in the picture on the left

 and sounds just like him. 

 

Tommy Lee Jones went to high school at St. Marks in Dallas, Texas, at least, that’s what his biography says
yet does not mention anything about JFK, Oswald, Ruby
or even being a cop. 
Maybe he doesn’t remember!
That would not surprise me since everyone seems to have this dysfunction concerning this series of events!
Interesting also that Tommy Lee Jones portrays Clay Shaw supposedly involved in the assassination of Oswald in Oliver Stone’s movie about the assassination of JFK .
I did find a place where
Tommy Lee Jones admits in this article on the web to being in Dallas that same day
 
but whether it is true I don’t know. Looks like he was and sounds like he was.
Supposedly Jim Garrison was interviewed by Tommy Lee Jones and shortly afterward Jim Garrison died
but included in the interview was that Jim Garrison was sick at the time of the interview.
Whether or not this is just junk innuendo on the web…

I don’t know

but

it is kind of Erie!

That small innuendo interview is linked on the underlined portion above.
Here is another video you tube with a very young Tommy Lee Jones:

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (WFAA-TV COVERAGE)(PART 41)

 

 
He also says subdued very much like Henry Wade does so that it is hard to hear the first syllable. Possibly a southern way of saying subdued. More like sdood, but you have to hear both Henry Wades interview I think in the next part of this transcription and this interview to see what I mean.

Why is he sticking out his tongue?

The actor we normally see in the movies doesn’t stick out his tongue.
 Are they free walkin’ talkin’ trance-ient assassins, because of who they believe and who they serve?
Are they the machin-ery President Kennedy warned about in his infamous speech:
“monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covet means for expanding it’s sphere of influence: On infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerillas by night instead of armies by day.
It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations……….”

JFK Blows The Whistle on Secret Societies!

Aren’t Bill Clinton and Al Gore his college buddies?
Lot of deaths and other kinds of activities with women associated and surrounding Bill Clinton.
They must be in snug with Billy Graham since they,
uh, prey together.
Maybe they are just mir mindless puppets themselves.
(And partaking of her sins as in Revelation)

Chapter 2: Inside Parkland Memorial Hospital

Also interesting descriptions from some Sen. Yarborough, Dr. Crenshaw, ambulance driver Aubrey Reich from O’Neal Funeral Home of the scene at Parkland hospital and the power struggle over his President Kennedy’s body that ensued. 

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

 Now the cortege is forming ahead of the (Queso?)
 (Not sure that is what he is saying or the meaning)
 

Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy and her daughter are walking up to the casket.Will be her last goodbye for today.
(Jackie kisses the casket.)
==================================================
From our CBS Newsroom in New York a bulletin Lee Harvey Oswald the man who Dallas Police say killed President Kennedy himself is dead. He was cut down by a single bullet and hour and fifteen minutes before he died in Parkland Hospital in a room just ten feet from that room where President Kennedy died. He was being taken from the Dallas City Jail to the Dallas County Jail but in the basement of the Dallas City Jail before he left that building he was shot. The man Dallas Police seized at the scene and are holding has been identified as Jack Rubenstein known in Dallas as Jack Ruby. A man who many years ago moved to Dallas from Chicago and was operating two nightclubs and well-known nightclubs in Dallas. He is 52 years old and balding with black hair. He’s being held by Dallas Police who say they will charge him with the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald.(licks)

Now back to Washington.
Just as Walter Cronkite gave that bulletin in New York it was coming in down here on our transistor radios that are held by members of the crowd and we heard a cheer go up from the far side of the Capitol Plaza.
==========================================================
The man who Dallas Police accuse of assassinating Lee Oswald was known in Dallas as Jack Ruby. (garbled) his real name the name he carried in Chicago before he came to Dallas in 1948 Jack Rubenstein. This is a Police mug photo of Jack Rubenstein.


 Still trying to figure out who this man is. When I do I’ll add to this part
. I just noticed him in the hallway with Oswald in the police station and he seems to be important!
I thought he looked a lot like Ruby but elongated in the face. 35/6:59 

Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas Police Department

What gets me is somewhere Eddie Barker and Dan Rather tell about how Dallas police  were very sensitive to what happened with Adlai Stevenson and were going to try to change the perception of Dallas then why would they parade Oswald sporting a swollen eye and allow a mob scene in the hallway? Why would they allow Oswald to say all kinds of stuff to the crowd of reporters if they  were worried what people thought about them. And he says all the right things to make a good conspiracy later on.
It seems to me as if this is a total put on!!
INCLUDING EVERYTHING ABOUT OSWALD AN RUBY.
WHETHER THE ASSASSINATION OF JFK IS A ALSO PUT ON…….YOU HAVE TO WONDER.
TOO MUCH ACTING GOING ON
Now we’re going to run a film that was taken by cameraman Joe Phoenix uh George Phoenix in the basement of the Dallas City Jail. Now it’s very important that you watch in the right hand corner on your screen the hat. There will be a hat appearing on the right hand corner of your screen and keep your eye on the man in that hat. Now here is the film taken in the basement. You’ll see that hat start to move now. That’s Lee Oswald dark haired short. The hat begins to move. Now it moves in front of Oswald. Shot sounds and Oswald lurches and the crowd starts to move in.
 
For a second there Dan Rather sounded rather like Bill Clinton.
========================================
And here is an associated press still picture of the moment the split second as the shot was fired.
 
Walter Cronkite holding picture
This is the man Dallas Police have identified as Jack Rubenstein and this of course is Lee Harvey Oswald.
You see the gun in the hand of Ruby and just about to be fired.

I found another picture of Lee Oswald according to 

NBC news coverage of the assassination Part 23 (3:27/6:42)

 which is linked and compared it to a picture

of a man sitting with Jackie Kennedy and JFK on a boat

from the french series called What Jackie Knew linked below the pictures . 

 

 

So you have to wonder

if and why Jackie and JFK

are hanging out with Lee Oswald

on a boat?

 

 Not to mention Lee Harvey Oswald …
the one that supposedly was assassinated in Dallas
looks different than the man on the boat
and the man in NBC’s picture above of Oswald!
 

What Jackie knew – Part 4   (4:02/9:25)

Jeremiah 7:19

19 Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not provoke themselves

to the confusion of their own faces?

Daniel 9:7

O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them,

because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 53)

This is Walter Cronkite back in our CBS Newsroom in New York. We will be returning to Washington of course, uh very shortly. But this is to report again that Lee Harvey Oswald the 24 year old Marxist Pro Castrolite to Dallas Police said they had a cinch case against the accused assassin of President Kennedy was himself shot to death in Dallas an hour and a half ago. He was shot in the basement of the City Jail as police attempted to transfer him from that jail where he had been held since the assassination to the County Jail a few blocks away.

Why in the world were they moving him to the County Jail?  Who knows for sure but in my opinion as yet it was an excuse to cause more confusion and mayhem and lay the blame elsewhere. Smoke and mirrors.

The police captured a man at the scene who reporters saw shoot Oswald and have booked him. They say his name is Jack Ruby or Rubenstein. He is 52 years old, a bachelor, a Dallas nightclub operator who as fas as anyone has been able to find out had no particular political opinions.

Someone passes something to Walter Cronkite.

Rubenstein (Walter licks) uh or Ruby as he is known there had been in Dallas some ten years. He (garble or a glitch) automobile just outside the entrance to the basement leaped a three foot fence and with perfect timing dashed into an open door of the basement just as Oswald was led from an elevator from an upstairs jail toward an armored car that had been brought to the jail for special precautions for moving him to the County Building. Ruby  if that uh turns out to be the man involved in the murder of Oswald ran forward right up to Oswald and from less than a foot away fired a small caliber pistol. The bullet did mortal damage to Oswald who apparently never regained consciousness. He was taken to Parkland Hospital and died an hour and fifteen minutes after he was shot in a Emergency room just 10 feet from the room where President Kennedy had died almost exactly 48 hours before.

And now let’s go down to Dallas and Dan Rather:

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

In Dallas with Lee Oswald the man accused of assassinating President Kennedy, dead.

The big question now is what kind of man shot Lee Oswald,

and why?

In Dan Rather’s mind it worked…the smoke and mirrors. Off of the assassination of JFK and on to the assassination of Oswald, but not really :)

We have in the studios of our affiliate station KRLD TV here in Dallas Bill DeMar who is a nightclub MC, a comedian by profession. Bill worked in the nightclub owned by Jack Ruby. Jack Rubisstein (as he pronounced it) is his real name known in Dallas circles as Jack Ruby.

Q: Bill how long have you been working at the Carousel Club owned by Jack Rubenstein?

Bill: Uh, this time about two weeks.

Q: You had worked for him before, had you?

Bill: Three times before, this is my fourth time here.

Q: The Carousel Club is located right in downtown Dallas. What kind of place is it?

Bill: Well it’s a nightclub. Uh it has about five or six exotic dancers uh all (garbled)

Q: Is it a pretty rough place?

Bill: No, no a there’s a lot of people that have said to me when they came up to me after shows or between shows that said that they liked the place because it was intimate. (licks)

Q: What kind of man is Jack Rubenstein?

Bill: Well, if you know him he’s he’s a pretty good type guy.  He, uh always treated me right and we always got along real well. Uh, I consider him more of a friend than an employer.

Q: Is he an extrovert? Is he a hand shaking backslapping rather loud type person?

A: In a way, yes. Yes, uh uh kind of impulsive. He’d change from one thing to the other, sometimes do things out of the clear blue.

Q: You say rather impulsive?

Bill: At times.

Q: Could you give us an example of what  you would consider as some impulsive actions?

Bill: mmm, No, his mind would would uh uh is always working is always going and uh he’d be uh possibly talking to you about one thing and all of a sudden he’d take off about on something else.

Q: Is he married? What the heck does that have to do with it?

Bill: No, he never has been, to my knowledge. It seemed that he mentioned to me before that he never married. Doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke.

Q: There have been some reports that uh he came to Dallas from Chicago. Do you know anything about that?

Bill: No I don’t.

Q: Does he have a police record of which you are aware?

Bill: No, not that I know of

Q: Did it surprise you when you heard this morning that he’d possibly fired the shots which uh wound up killing Lee Oswald?

Bill: Definitely, I was very shocked and very saddened uh that uh Jack would even be involved. But, uh, I don’t know. The fact that he had closed the club so definitely like he did ur uh putting up a sign saying closed and taking the pictures out of the front of the club and um not calling me notifying me that he had closed. Uh, he had somebody else call, but I never got the message.

Q: Now when was this? He called when to tell you the club was closed.

Bill: He didn’t call me.

Q: I see.

Bill: Uh he had somebody else call me.

Q: When was this?

Bill: Uh, Friday uhhh when I had heard about the news of the President uh I reluctantly got ready to go to work because I hadn’t got the message that he had closed. They failed to deliver the message to me and so I got ready to go to work and got down there and saw the sign on the front saying” Closed” and I drove around to the other two clubs and they were closed, but they had no notice.

Q: Did he own two more clubs in town?

Bill: No I the other two uh burlesque clubs that are near there.

Q: I see. Do you know anything about Jack Rubenstein’s political philosophies?

Bill: No he never uh spoke about anything. When we’d go for breakfast afterwards or anything the only thing he’d talk about was his business.

Q: Did you ever hear him say anything about President Kennedy?

Bill: Never.

Wow listen to this!

Q: Do you know Lee Oswald? Have you ever seen him?

Bill: To my knowledge if I recollect correctly I saw him in the audience last week.

Q: Lee Oswald in the audience at the club?

Bill: Yea

Q: At the Carousel?

Bill: Yes

Q: Which is owned by Jack Rubenstein?

Bill: Yes.

Q: That would have been about how many days ago?

Bill: eight, nine

I wonder why Oswald was at Jack Ruby’s club a week before?

And I wonder which Oswald?

Q: Do you remember the specific uh instance what happened with Oswald in the club? Was he simply in the audience?

Bill: No I was doing a memory routine and uh I use about 20 people in the audience and have ‘em call out an object and then at random I call the objects back to them uh whoever wants their object called first or whatever the case may be. It seems to me he was one of the people uh after seeing the picture in the paper I remember seeing him in the audience as one of the people that gave me an object.

Q: Did Jack Rubenstein speak with Oswald to your knowledge?

Bill: No, I didn’t, I didn’t see him. I don’t think Jack even knew he was in there.

Q: You don’t think Rubenstein knew that Oswald was in the club. (Bill nods sideways) It’s such a strange coincidence that uh he would be in the club. Do you think it possible that Rubenstein knew him?

Bill: I don’t think so. Well, uh I don’t know for sure.

Q: uh huh. Could you  possibly be mistaken about Oswald?

Bill: Being in the club?

Q: Yes

Bill: Well, I don’t know. I’ve remembered the face, and I do remember faces.

Q: In your own mind you’re certain it was Oswald.

Bill: Yes

Q: Had you made an effort to see uh Jack Rubenstein since the shooting this morning?

Bill: No I had thought about going down there now because like I say he’s more of a friend than an employer and I did want to see him.

Q: Before all this happened would you have thought that Rubenstein was the type of man capable of such violence?

Bill: No, no Jack uh acted a little harshly sometimes but uh nothing like this. I wouldn’t have thought he’d do anything like this

Q: What do you mean he acted harshly sometimes in (garbled) with his employees?

Bill: No no uh uh garbled employees and sometimes customers. If they got a little out of hand why he was ready to put them out.

Q: Do you know whether he carried a gun on his person as a matter of general course?

Bill: Uh yes. Uh he carried it in a bag when he went back and forth to work.

Q: What kind of. Have you seen this pistol?

Bill: Uh yes I saw it once uh a little over a year ago. Last time I was here.

Q: What kind of pistol was it garbled?

Bill: A little, sharp nose, it was very small uh little pistol. He only carried it when he went back and forth to work. I never saw him on carry it on him you know or anything like that.

Just in the bag as protection, because he was carrying the money. 

Q: Uh huh.

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

Dan Rather: We’ve been speaking with Bill DeMar a professional entertainer who has been a master of ceremonies at the Carousel Club in downtown Dallas a club owned by Jack Rubenstein.

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

Q: Uh Bill, there have been some reports that Rubenstein did own either now or sometime in the recent past another club in town. Do you know anything about that?

Bill: The Vegas.

Q: The Old Vegas Club.

Bill: Yea

Q:Is it still in operation?

Bill: It was until he closed it because of the President’s death

Q: But uh so far as you know he did own that club in addition to The Carousel?

Bill: Yes. To my knowledge yea he did

Q: Do you do you ever recall seeing any unsavory characters or people that you might associate with the underworld around the club

Bill: No, no.

Dan Rather: Let’s see now if we can get the picture, the police picture, of Jack Rubenstein.

That’s a profile and a head-on shot of the man accused of assassinating

the man who was accused of assassinating

President Kennedy.

Bill looks a bit perplexed. He is a comedian!

This is Dan Rather in Dallas Texas. Back now to Walter Cronkite in New York.


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

Walter Cronkite:

There were many witnesses to the shooting of Oswald allegedly by Jack Rubenstin Rubenstein. Uh, one of them was a a Detective Combest who knew Rubenstein very well and he said he saw him charging into the garage just as Oswald was being taken from elevator to the armored car. He said he knew what he was going to do, tried desperately to stop him, shouted an epithet at him to stop but was too late in reaching Ruby’s side and uh the shot was fired. (licks)

How would Detective Combest know what Rubenstein was going to do?

It looked to me like Ruby was standing still behind someone (a cameraman, photographer… I believe)

before Oswald came in

and I did not hear anyone shouting an epithet to stop

in the video.

Repeating what you have been told in the last uh few minutes. Lee Harvey Oswald the man Dallas Police accused of killing President Kennedy has himself been killed shot in the basement of the Dallas Jail. We will now return to Washington.

End
