JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 11)

 

CBS News, of course, will stay on the air live throughout this day to keep you up to the minute on the latest developments in the assassination of the President and in the inevitable aftermath that will follow him.

Mrs. Kennedy was with the President uh in the same car. She was not hurt.

The President’s mother and father were told of the that the President was shot by a workman in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts where they are. The report came to them before it was known that the President had been killed.

Man in the background takes a puff of a cigarette!

Odd that a workman would know about the shooting and death of JFK

before the parents knew.

I guess the workman worked for someone that would know.

They never reveal the name of that workman. Maybe puffing is a clue.

Reports were that neither the President’s father, former Ambassador Joseph F. Kennedy or Joseph P. Kennedy  rather, nor the President’s mother, had any comment to make when told of the shooting.

The President’s father is now a semi-invalid as a result of a stroke a few years ago and he was napping when the word came. The President and Mrs. Kennedy had planned to spend Thanksgiving Holiday at Hyannis Port next week.

We will have a live switch to the United Nations uh video

Weird

This pops up on the screen for a second or so. I’m sure it means something ….

just not sure what OR why this was inserted! Here is a little about that title:

(1:13-1:14/10:44)

“Anatole de Keroual is captured by the British in the Napoleonic war and imprisoned in the dungeon of Edinburgh Castle with six companions. Floria Gilchrist, coveted by the fortress commander, Major Edward Chevenish, falls in love with Anatole, and he with her, but Chevenish refuses Floria’s plea for a pardon for Anatole unless she agrees to marry him. Anatole engineers an escape from the prison, and goes to London to straighten out affairs of the estate of his uncle, Viscount Victor St. Ives. There he is apprehended and put on trial for murder.”

Back to Charles Collingwood:

only Adelai Stevenson at the UN accepting condolences.

There is no soun sound to this but the United Nations like other institutions is uh adjourning its deliberations to pay honor to the President of the United States.

Pope Paul in Rome has been informed of the President’s death.

Cardinal Spellman there in Rome for the Ecumenical Council, his voice shaking with emotion said,

I am saying the Rosary for him now.”

‘ The Cardinal said that President Kennedy’s death …..

President Kennedy, of course, a fellow co-religionist of Cardinal Spellman.

The Cardinal said, “it was a great loss to the country and to the world.”

Cardinal James McIntyre of Los Angelos and Cardinal Ritter of St. Louis called together the student priests of Rome’s North American College to recite prayers for Kennedy.

Cardinal McIntyre said that Cardinal Ritter and myself were having dinner there in Rome.

It’s dinnertime there, because of the time difference.

When they heard the astounding news of the President’s death we are shocked, grief-stricken. Our hearts are pained.

I’m suspicious of their alibi!

Hardly anyone else tells where they are

at that time

and/or what they are doing unless they were at the scene of the crime.  Seems very presumptive!

The name Ritter makes me think of John Ritter the actor who starred in a weekly comedy called ”Threes Company.”

What seems stranger to me is that the person who hands Jackie Kennedy or her double the Lamb Chops Puppet over the fence line at the airport in Dallas a half hour before the assassination of President Kennedy looks very much like John Ritter with a hat on his head. He also looks like the man in the picture that I found of Billy Graham and two friends at Wheaton College. The pictures of both are in the same articles/posts linked below. Check it out:

Rev. Wilkerson, Evangelicalism and the Covenant With Many 

or

Rev. David Wilkerson, Billy Graham and Evangelicalism

(Both are similar posts!)

West Germany Chancellor Ludwig Eirehart who was to have visited President Kennedy on Sunday was informed of the President’s death while on the way back to Bonn from Paris. “The news fills the German people with deep grief,” said Chancellor Eirehart. “All those who had the fortunate opportunity to make the personal acquaintance of President Kennedy, in particular the people of Berlin where of course the President had recently visited, are deeply grieved in this hour.”

The Premier Designate of Italy Aldo Morro said,

his stature as a politician in his great country and on the international scene was growing

in these years of a cor courageous policy of renewal.” 

“The reason for which he was struck in a mad way

raises President Kennedy

even more on the moral plane

as a great defender of man’s dignity and equality,” 

said the Italian Premier Designate in Rome.

French Premier George Pompedoui exclaimed, “It is atrocious. It is frightful. I am overwhelmed.”

In Madrid, a foreign office spokesman said, “It is horrible, absolutely horrible, a most barbarous thing. Everyone here is horrified.”

And thus international differences, disputes, are swept away in the moment of shock, stun, grief.

The Italian News Agency Tass in reporting on it’s wires to it’s subscribers the death of the President asserted that he had been killed by a right wing American extremist. There is no confirmation of that. A man has been arrested in Dallas, a 30 year old white man who was carrying a gun. We know nothing of his political persuasion. But Dallas, Texas is considered a center of conservative philosophy and finance. It was on Oct. 24th that Adelai Stevenson our Ambassador to the United Nations, whom you saw a moment ago receiving condolences of representatives of other countries to the United Nations, that Adelai Stevenson making an appearance on United Nations Day in Dallas was spat upon by one heckler and struck with a placard by another. It was believed that uh the strong emotions which run in Texas and other parts of the South may have been part of the context of attitudes which resulted in the tragic occurence today.

It is believed that the President’s body will be moved shortly to Washington. Traditionally, funeral services for Presidents who die in office are held in the Capitol. A Presidential Spokesman, a White House spokesman told newsmen that Governor Connally who had been riding in the same open limousine with the President had been wounded in the right chest. Connally ha was rushed into surgery in the hospital for a 2 hour emergency operation. He is said uh to be in serious condition, but the doctors say that his vital forces are strong. (licks)

A Lieutenant of the Secret Service, Lieutenant Kominski, said that the assassin’s weapon appears to have been a high-powered army or Japanese rifle of about 25 caliber. The rifle had a scope sight on it at according to the Secret Service Lieutenant. (licks) The entire building where the sniper was located was evacuated and people working in the building at the time of the shooting were questioned.

This morning President Kennedy had telephoned Vice President John Nance Garner who had been Roosevelt’s Vice President, as you remember, congratulating him on his 95th birthday where Vice Presi where former Vice President Garner lives in New Valdi, Texas. And according to this report Garner’s end of the conversation went this way God Bless you Mr President. You’re my President and I love you. I hope you stay there forever. Thank you, Mr. President. God bless you. The words of former VIce President John Nance Garner 95 years old in Texas this morning. One of the last telephone calls that President Kennedy apparently made.

This is what we know of the assassination as it took place this morning. President Kennedy was traveling in a motorcade through the streets of Dallas before a a generally enthusiastic crowd, in some places a conspicuously enthusiastic crowd of a quarter million people. With Mr. Kennedy in the open limousine, the White House Bubble Top, which is so familiar to those who have seen the President on television or in person as he travels throughout the country. With the President were Governor John Connally of Texas, Mrs. Kennedy, and Mrs. Connally. Suddenly there were shots. An eye witness said that he saw them, saw them, fired from a window in a warehouse building overlooking the route from downtown Tallis Dallas out to the Trade Mart where the President was to appear.(licks) Bullets hit Mr. Kennedy in the forehead and Governor Connally in the chest. The two men were seen to slump into their wives arms. Neither Mrs. Kennedy nor Mrs. Connally were hurt.

One report has said, still not confirmed, that one of the Secret Service men accompanying and guarding the President was killed by the gunfire.

Then convoyed by Police the limousine raced off at top speed to Parkland Hospital which was 5 minutes away. Meanwhile Police and Secret Secret Service agents moved in on the assassins searched the building and an arrest of one man armed with a rifle is reported.

The President and the Governor were taken to the hospital’s Emergency Room. The President was not moved from there and died there. The Governor was moved to an operating room and after an operation is reported in serious condition, but the doctors appear to be hopeful.

Dallas motorcycle officers who were ranging along beside the cavalcade took off across a field in the direction from which the murderer apparently had fired. One officer raced to the foot of a nearby railroad embankment and climbed to the tracks above gun in hand. No one knew quite where the shots had been fired for quite a long while. Apparently they were fired from a building and not from one of the knolls which rose above the road.

White House Secretary Press Secretary the acting Press Secretary Malcom Killduff said that the President’s body will be flown to Washington this afternoon.

The Dallas Sheriff’s Department said a rifle had been found on a staircase on the fifth floor of the building near the scene where it is now believed the from where the shots were fired. It was a 7.65 Mouser, German rifle familiar to those who served in WWII. The German made army rifle had a telescopic sight, one shell was left in the chamber, three spent shells were found nearby. Most of the witnesses most of those who were in the cavalcade as they attempt to recollect the sudden and confused events which took place say that they heard three shots which uh checks with the fact that three shots had been fired one still found in the Mouser with which the assassin was apparently armed.

Democratic Senator from Texas Ralph Yarborough who like most other Texas Politicians these days have been engaged in hot political infighting there was riding three cars behind President Kennedy and he told newsmen in a choked and emotional interview (the young man at CBS Studio coughs in background)  that you could tell that something awful and tragic had happened. Senator Yarborough said that I could see a Secret Service man in the President’s car leaning on the car with his hands in anger, anguish, and despair. I knew then said Sen. Yarboroughthat something tragic had happened.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 12)

 

Charles Collingwood reporting:

We continue to get reports from foreign countries as the word reaches the Chiefs of State and simple people in other countries of

the death of the American President.

As is always happens on these occasions shock ahh is the dominating note of the reports from abroad.
.

The slip of the tongue ” Shock ahh” reminds me of “Shock and Awe”!

What is odd about this is that there is a man that seems to be casing the reporters, especially Walter Cronkite in the CBS News Room in earlier reports looks like a young George Bush Jr.

Weird!

“Shock and Awe (technically known as rapid dominance) is a military doctrine based on the use of overwhelming power, dominant battlefield awareness, dominant maneuvers, and spectacular displays of force to paralyze an adversary’s perception of the battlefield and destroy its will to fight. The doctrine was written by Harlan K. Ullman and James P. Wade in 1996 and is a product of the National Defense University of the United States.”

I wonder if James P. Wade is related to Henry Wade?

CBS News and JFK (A Lot of Lickin’ Goin’ On)

Judge Sarah T. Hughes was the judge that swore in LBJ as President after the death of JFK on a plane using a Catholic bible 

and she also was also involved in Roe vs. Wade:

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

Coincidental?

I tried to find young pictures of George Bush JR., but had no luck. The reactions of the CASING PACING MAN to certain subjects or words used by Walter Cronkite such as et and just his odd behavior in the first few hours after the assassination of JFK seem to be Texas sensitive. George Bush is a Texan. Probably just a coincidence! Although his dad was a leader of the CIA in that time period when President Kennedy was assassinated, I think, although Pres. Bush Sr denies it? Even his body language seems similar. The fact that George Bush was evangelized by Billy Graham and Billy Graham appears to be a participant also seems odd. Another interesting link George Bush said that when he looks in Pope Benedict’s eyes that he sees God.

Pope Benedict and his brother George also are participants and their picture was taken with President Eisenhower and a young Joseph Ratzinger is represented in that picture as being the Chief of the Secret Service, Chief Rowley. Not only that both are in the background of the Manhattan street man interview in the post following called

CBS News and JFK (Well, I Was a RaDIO) Parts 14-15

 starring Amanda Plummer and Ruth Gordon of Rose Mary’s Baby. So I guess they are involved in some cap-a-city, as well.

The late Rev. David Wilkerson at the airport in Dallas also seems to be involved in some capacity with this affair.

The pastor of Highland Park Methodist Church in Dallas, Texas – Dr. William Dickinson Jr who also looks like some kind of high official of either the Secret Service, CIA,  or Police who arrives at the scene of the School Book Depository directing other officials which occurs before he arrives at the Trade Mart an hour later to “give a word” and/or the BENEDICTION at the end of Part 5 of this series. 

The Second Vatican Council of the Roman Catholic Church just happens to be occurring in that same year and the beginning of the Neocatechumenal Way and Opus Dei.

Another person who gives his whereabouts and who he is with at the time of the assassination, ie an alibi, is Billy Graham in a book Billy Graham wrote called Just As I AM which I wrote about in the post called:

Rev. David Wilkerson and Evangelicalism

which also includes a whole bunch of interesting activities at the airport  in Dallas and very strange behavior of Secret Service Agent Jack Ready/Billy Graham, Jackie Kennedy, Secret Service Agent Roy Kellerman and others which I hope you will take time to read. 

The skiddish/skittish behavior of the CBS Reporters in the Newsroom in New York which I believe was a takeover of the Press at that time, the blackout of Dallas at the first hour of the incident, in other words, it was a COUP.

The puffing of Billy Graham and now George Ganswein, the Pope’s personal secretary. Ganswein’s resemblance to Randolph William Hearst who had the Press puff BIlly Graham and was or is said to have been a Nazi Sympathizer and many other things. His initiative for the World Youth Organization. Now the push to invite the World Youths and anyone else to PASS THROUGH the Magnificent Portal at Notre Dame in Paris at the Courtyard of the Gentiles.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Then there is 911 and the forfeit of privacy for National Security’s sake. the abuse of the Press, Ecumenicalism, Secret Societies, which was expressed by President Kennedy before he died and not to mention, but I will anyway, the death of his brother Robert Kennedy and JFK’s son John F. Kennedy Jr and their close ties to Billy Graham or rather his invasion of their family naivety and friendship.

Billy Graham has proved over the years to be a shill of the Papacy, Roman Catholicism and the Unified World Religion ie Ecumenicalism.

Gee it seems thatWWII is still ongoing and we have many spies in our country including actors and actresses!

Hate to admit and it does sound crazy I think we are dealing with doubles, occupation of bodies, and probably some form of trance/hypnotic mind control of people in this case. MOST ASSUREDLY a spiritual connection to their behavior culminating in our day and time because they serve a FALSE GOD ie the DEVIL, because they are victims of the FALSE TEACHING of the FALSE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS PROPAGATING A FALSE REPRESENTATION OF JESUS and WHY HE CAME, WHEN HE CAME, AND WHO HE IS in their scrambling, confusion and PURSUIT FOR POWER and most of all to control us, confuse us, abuse us, rob us, and kill us for their MASTER because they also want to be our masters. One big huge mess. Most of them could care less about the truth as they pray their mantra to their RAT MAN enslaving their followers at the same time.

You.

If you think it is not important….think again. Who you pray to is important. 

There are some that have tried in their capacities to express their suspicions in their way as best they can. We ought to notice and analyze when we can what they have tried to show us being heedful of artful deception all around them and us and the possibility that they are deceived and/or are part of the deception.

It is extremely tough and confusing to interpret, but very stupid and totally ridiculous to ignore!

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

Back to CBS NEWS:

We learned from Washington that Mrs. Sargent Shriver the sister of the President has been taken by helicopter from the White House to Andrews Air Force Base presumably to fly to Dallas to join Mrs. Kennedy or perhaps to await there the return of the party from Dallas.

Mrs. Kennedy, who was riding in the same car with the President, was not hurt, but has been taken to a quiet room in the hospital. 1:10/10:40 AH AH AH AH AH At this moment after the aftermath of the terrible moment that she had to go through in which shot rang out and the President slunk down his head in her lap.

That was strange!

Reports are still coming in. They do not perhaps add a great deal to the confusion of the events that we have been trying to sort out all day, but as they come into us CBS News is going to stay on the air live from here throughout this day in order to keep you up to date on the latest developments in the assassination of the President and what happens next.

The news agencies and our own correspondents who are keeping us informed from Dallas continue to send us reports bringing together the various pieces of information some confirmed some unconfirmed as they come in and as we begin to sort out the truth from the rumors of what has happened. (licked)

The President’s body has now been removed from Parkland Hospital. It was taken from there uh shortly after his death in a long uh cream colored ambulance with the curtains tightly drawn. Mrs Kennedy rode from the hospital in a passenger seat in the ambulance which is a type of vehicle that does have two seats for passengers. She and the body of President Kennedy were escorted from the Emergency Entrance of the Parkland Hospital by two motorcycle officers. Mrs. Kennedy walked slowly from the hospital to the ambulance looking around her, we are told, in a dazed manner and appeared to be in a state of shock. Those who saw her enter the hospital an hour and a half earlier said that she had not been hysterical and remained in control of herself throughout. Secret Service men uh have directed Police to remove spectators from the whole area.

Now we have another report from Washington.

Neil Strausser reporting:

Three jet planes are now warming up at Andrew’s Air Force Base presumably to fly members of the President’s family to Dallas, Texas. As you’ve already heard Eunice Shriver, the President’s sister, has left the White House by helicopter along with the President’s aide and very good friend Theodore Sorenson presumably on the way to Andrew’s Air Force Base.

Comments coming in from Capitol Hill are uniform in sorrow and very much bi-partisan. Democratic Senate Leader Mike Mansfield told newsmen, ” the death was a deep personal and tragic loss.”

Seated with Republican Senate Leader Everit Dirkson and Mansfield offices off the floor of the Senate Chamber the Democratic Leader told assembled reporters simply, “He was a man who contributed so much and deserves so much more in return.”

Senator Allen Bible Democrat of Nevada said, “This is one of the great tragedies of our civilization. The world has lost a great champion and the United States has lost a great and courageous President.”

Senator Jordan Democrat of North Carolina said, “The assassination was a great tragedy that has befallen this nation.”

The Speaker of the House and the next man in line for the Presidency after Lyndon Johnson, Speaker McCormick issued this statement to reporters, “This is a tragic event. I feel very inadequate in expressing my thoughts. The nation,” said Speaker McCormack,” has sustained a staggering loss, the significance of which is stupendous. Our country and the entire world will never forget President Kennedy. His leadership was superb in meeting the challenge of this period of world history. The warmth of his personality will never be forgotten. The relationship that has existed between the President and myself throughout the years has been very close and most friendly. In his tragic passing I have lost a dear and personal friend. The statement of Speaker McCormack.

We are told that an aide of Vice President Lyndon Johnson, now President Johnson George Reedy has arrived at the White House. There can be very little delay in these times, of course, to have a new administration take over. As we told you the law says the Oath of Office can be given by almost anyone. By now Johnson could already have taken it. It is presumed he will take it very shortly. 

This is Neil Strausser in Washington.

Charles Collingwood reports:

President Kennedy’s body has been removed from the hospital in Dallas, Texas on the first stage of its journey back to Washington for what will be a State Burial. Mrs. Kennedy accompanied the body in an ambulance from the hospital to the airport where it will be flown back to Washington. Walter Cronkite whom uh who has been at this microphone all afternoon since the first word of of the President’s death has uh been looking at the reports as they come in. Walter have you discovered anything further than we’ve been uh giving?

Charles, nothing, except, as you know and indeed have already reported, that now the messages are beginning to come in from around the world and from the cities of the United States where a nation is in almost I I I would say it advisably, almost uncontrollable shock it seems. They’re weeping on the streets. Schools have to be dismissed. My own school is dismissed, because the children were weeping so much they couldn’t stay in con…..garbled (Man behind is wiping his eyes). Quite a tragic day as we all obviously know. Do you want me to relieve you a few minutes here  Garbled stay on the air through all this is. Excuse me.

Certainly.

We do have some word here to, as to, as to uh what is, where some of the members of the uh Kennedy family were at the time of the event in Dallas, the assassination. Bob Kennedy, Robert Kennedy the uh Attorney General of the United States uh we are told was uh at lunch at the time it happened uh at his home in McClean, Virgina.

Uh FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover called the FBI office in Dallas and ordered an all out investigation of the shooting which of course could be expected. (licks) President Kennedy as you’ve been told now was uh the first President to be assassinated since William McKinnley who was shot to death in 19 uh 6 uh 19 uh 01.

(Takes off glasses) Six members of the Kennedy Cabinet as you also I believe have been told during the day were out of the country on their way to Japan. Uh their plane was called back an hour and a half out of Honolulu. Uh, they’re expected, of course, to return immediately to Washington. (licks)

It is anticipated that the new President of the United States, the 36th President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson, will continue uh the presi Kennedy’s policies with which he (?takes off glasses) seemed to be in firm agreement during these three years of the Kennedy Administration and presumably will continue most of the Cabinet in office uh through this next year at least until the uh November elections. (licks)

We told you that Senator Robert Kennedy was at his home in McClean, Virginia when he got the word. Senator Ted Kennedy and his wife, Joan, uh are now leaving Washington. Uh They’re boarding a jet at Andrews Air Force Base uh destined for Hyannis Port to be with uh the President’s mother and father who got the news there from a workman around the house who uh came running to the uh lawn where Mr. Kennedy was resting, with the news of the assassination. (licks)

The new President of the United States we believe that he must have by now taken uh the Oath of Office although we have not been advised of this yet is Lyndon Baines Johnson, a native of Texas, of Johnson City, Texas; where his mother and father had a ranch. He was born there some 54 years ago. (licks)

Uh, he was uh interested in politics at an early day when he was still in Southwest State Teachers College. He took uh law later and uh and became a very early uh follower of Fa Franklin Delanor Roosevelt who uh caught uh uh who became interested in the young man uh when he went to Congress in 19 uh in the early days uh 1937 of the Roosevelt uh second term and uh Mr. Roosevelt had indeed sponsored him for that uh job after making him

National Youth Administrator in Texas.

(puts glasses on)

LBJ

FDR

Is it my imagination

or does FDR , LBJ and Billy Graham share some physical traits?

The youngish FDR looks like Billy Graham!

 

I wonder who caught this picture.

LBJ does not seem to be aware

of any photographer!!!!!!!

It is a close up and appears to be at his ranch,

but Billy Graham seems to be posing.

President Lyndon B. Johnson presents

Billy Graham with the Big Brothers of America Award

Laughing hysterically at this conundrum.

JFK’S ASSASSINATION (CBS-TV COVERAGE)(PART 13)

 

CBS News Correspondent Dan Rather has arrived in our KRLD Studio in Dallas.

Let’s switch now to Dallas for his story.

( licks) The whereabouts of Lyndon Bane Johnson at the moment are unknown. VIce President, either soon to be or already President of the United States. Lyndon Johnson was at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas at the time or near the time of the official announcement of the death of the 35th President of this country, John F. Kennedy. Mr. Johnson left the hospital a very short time after 1:00 o’clock Central Standard Time. That would be 2:00 o’clock in New York.

The Secret Service, at this moment or as a few moments ago, was saying that Mr. Johnson uhs whereabouts would not be revealed for security reasons.

Most, if not all, of the Federal District Judges of Dallas and surrounding counties

were in and around the motorcade at the time the shooting occurred. We are told that most of the District Judges went to Parkland Hospital. It is possible we are told, that uh Lyndon Johnson was sworn in in some kind of temporary ceremony at the hospital, however there is no confirmation on that. The fact is, at the moment, the whereabouts of uh Lyndon Johnson are unknown, the Secret Service says, for security reasons. (licks)

Why were Federal District Judges of Dallas and surrounding counties on the street.

Weren’t they invited to the luncheon at the Trade Mart?

(Or were they just reliable witnesses.)

Mrs. John F. Kennedy left the hospital at approximately the same time the coffin carrying the body of her husband left. The coffin went to a private air installation at Dallas’s Love Field. Uh it either has left or will leave Dallas Love Field in a matter of minutes. (licks sorta)

We are told uh that the gun shot wound, the fatal wound inflicted on the President of the United States, entered at the base of the throat and came out at the base of the neck on uh the back side.

 CBS News Correspondent Bob Pierpoint has been at the Parkland Hospital here in Dallas from just a few moments after the time uh President Kennedy arrived at the hospital and Governor John Connally arrived at the hospital. We expect to have Bob Pierpoint in the studio here with us very shortly. (licks)

A briefing session for newsmen is anticipated at Parkland Hospital at any moment. Uh Pierre Salinger, the Presidential Press Secretary presumably will preside over that briefing session. We hope to bring you that uh briefing session either live from the hospital or on film. At that time a good deal of the uh confusion about exactly what happened along the motorcade route uh here in Dallas at the time President Kennedy was shot and killed should be cleared up. That briefing session we expect to have in a few minutes.

Also, on the air very shortly we are hopeful of having some film taken at the Dallas Airport at the time of President Kennedy’s arrival.

Also, CBS news cameraman from Washington Tommy Cravens was in the motorcade uh less than 50 yards from President Kennedy when the shooting occurred. Uh, Cameraman Cravens film is uh on the premises at the time, at this time, being processed. We hope to have that film for you very, very sh shortly. What it will show uh Cameraman Cravens was not uh at all certain.

The there is some confusion as to whether a Secret Service man also was killed at the time of the shooting. There has been no official confirmation of any Secret Service man being killed. Although there are widespread reports including one from the Dallas Police Department that a Secret Service man was killed at the same time President Kennedy and Texas Governor John Connally were shot. 

The latest word from the hospital on uh Texas Governor Connally was that Governor Connally was in the operating room and had been uh seriously if not critically wounded. That was the last official word that we had from the Dallas Parkland Hospital. (licks)

As you may know by this time President Kennedy was shot as he took part in a motorcade which was driving him to the Dallas Trade Mart which is uh a big meeting center located just a short way from down town Dallas. (licks) The announcement that the President had been shot was not made at that meeting center until approximately a half hour after the President arrived at the hospital. There was a great deal of uh grief immediately at the uh center there was a great deal of disbelief. In fact uh switchboards all over Dallas that anything resembling a public information source or still completely swamped with callers who are apparently refuse to believe that John F. Kennedy has been shot and killed. (licks)

There have been a number of uh suspects arrested by Dallas Police, Dallas County Sheriff’s Officers. One of the suspects was a 25 year old white youth. He was the first one arrested. He was in the vicinity of a multi-story building uh near the scene where President Kennedy and Texas Governor Connally were shot. On the fourth or fifth floor it has never been completely determined on which floor of that building, 4 empty cartridges were found. Police immediately arraigned that building. They also arraigned a 3 or 4 block area around that building believing that uh the assassin had fired his shots from the building.

A 25 year old white man was arrested either in or near that building and taken uh to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office as a suspect. However our latest report from the Sheriff’s office is that 25 year old man is not considered a good suspect.

Just a short while ago, near a down town Dallas theater, a 30 year old white man was arrested. He had on his person a weapon. At this time we are not exactly certain as to what kind of weapon it was. It uh had been reported that a 30-30 caliber weapon was the one used to kill President Kennedy and wound Governor Connally. That has not been confirmed. The whether or not the man arrested a few minutes ago at a down town Dallas theater had on his person a 30-30 weapon has not yet been confirmed. But the fact is that a 30 year old white man meeting the description of one for whom uh an alert and all points alert was put out shortly after the shooting has been taken into custody in down town Dallas.

In just a moment we hope to have the films from the shooting scene uh just after the shooting occurred by CBS cameraman Tommy Cravens. But while we see if that film uh is ready and can be uh shown to you, lets switch back to CBS news headquarters in New York.

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

There is considerable controversy that has gone on over a good number of years that is going to come up again now under tragic circumstances as to what number should be given to the new President of the United States Lyndon Baines Johnson. Whether he is the 36th or the 37th President of the United States even as it uh was debated whether President Kennedy is properly the 35th or the 36th President. This all stems from the fact that Grover Cleveland served split terms as President of the United States. Mr. President Truman uh called himself the 34th President of the United States and President Kennedy called himself the 35th both believing that Grover Cleveland’s two non-consequetive terms should be counted as one uh in counting the number of Presidents and not the total terms should be counted. So on that basis uh presumably President Lyndon Baines Johnson will consider himself the 36th President of the United States.

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

We still, quite oddly it seems uh to me on this news desk, have had no word from Dallas at all as to the uh location of (licks) uh Mr. Johnson, nor as to whether or not he has indeed taken the Oath of Office. It is assumed that he would have from uh a Dallas Judge, a Federal Judge perhaps. Perhaps then deciding to have another uh ceremony in Washington with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court uh which was what uh Calvin Coolidge did when he learned that he had become the President of the United States on his uh Vermont farm.  (looks up)

It seems almost uh inconceivable that again this whole tragic set of circumstances has taken place in

these last three hours only. (looking up at someone or something)

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

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

It was 12:25 Eastern Standard Time.

11:25 in Dallas uh when the shots rang out on that Dallas street

and the life of President Kennedy was uh snuffed out.

Notice that JFK was shot at 11:25, not 12:25

and pronounced dead at about noon,

not 1:00 PM!

We now learn that Vice President Johnson is expected to be sworn in as President aboard an airliner before flying back to the nation’s capitol.

The White House says that Mrs. Kennedy will return to Washington late today to be with the children Carolyn 6 and John Jr. who will be 3 next week.

(licks) We have word from Dr. Malcolm Parry the uh attendant the surgeon at Parkland Hospital who attended President Kennedy (takes off glasses) who says that when he arrived at the Emergency Room I noticed the President was in critical condition with a wound of the neck and head. (puts glasses back on) When asked if possibly the wounds could have been made by (takes off glasses) two bullets he said that he did not know. He said that immediate uh (puts glasses back on) resumptive measures were taken uh and Dr. Kent Clark the Chief of Neuro Surgery was called along with several other members of the staff. Dr. Perry says they arrived immediately but at this point the President’s condition was critical and moribund. A tracheotomy was performed to assist the President’s breathing. That’s a throat operation. The doctor’s said an oxygen machine was used and blood and fluid also were administered. All of this obviously to no avail.

The President died 25 minutes after the shooting (takes off glasses) at 1:00 Eastern uh Standard Time.

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 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!

Holding Back the…..

Emotions!

It’s Hard To Do Sometimes!

———————————-

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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 (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.

Picture of flag at half mast.

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?

End

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Or her double.

The Zapruder film shows Jackie with a smoking weapon.) 

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

Back to Harry Reasoner:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We are against bigotry in the Democratic Party.

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

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

Goodbye and God bless you!”

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

Back to Harry Reasoner

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

Sam Rayburn: I, Lyndon Baines Johnson….

LBJ: I, Lyndon Baines Johnson….

Sam Rayburn: Do solemnly swear….

LBJ: Do solemnly swear….

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Back to Harry Reasoner

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

In Germany Vice President Johnson went to the Berlin Wall.

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

Leader of Nationalist China on Fermosa.

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

Late???

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

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

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

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

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

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

that we only grow babies for breakfast.”

I have no idea what he is talking about.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Walter Cronkite: That’s Washington Texas press.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Walter Cronkite: Laughs

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

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

which he rarely does in this interview.

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

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

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

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

Walter Cronkite: Senator uh uh

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

now for that statement by videotape.

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

Someone says: Louder?

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

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

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

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

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

This is a sad time for all people. We have suffered a loss that cannot be weighed. For me it is a deep personal tragedy. I know that the world shares the sorrow that Mrs. Kennedy and her family bear, I will do my best. That is all that I can do. I ask for your help and Gods.

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

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

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

Kids singing a hymn.

This is Charles Coralt 

(whispering in some dark corner)

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

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

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