πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ JFK Conspiracies πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ


Disclaimer: Writing about these conspiracy theories is for entertainment and I'm not saying that any of these things are facts. I'm not trying to spread misinformation or anything like that. I’m also not trying to be disrespectful in any way. Posting this article doesn’t mean I believe in these either, this is just some conspiracy theories that I've come across after spending years with hyper conspiracy theorists. πŸ’›

On November 22nd 1963 John Fitzergerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated while riding in a presidential motorcade through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas.

Background

John F. Kennedy (JFK) was a very popular and progressive President. He was in office from January 20th, 1961 to his death on November 22nd 1963. During his presidency he is most well known for handling the Cuban missile crisis and for his support of the human rights movement. He established the Peace Corps and helped to further the Apollo space missions. In his inaugural address, he famously said, "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." He had a lot of enemies because of his support of desegregation and the human rights movements. JFK had a lot of progressive ideas that threatened established power structures in the US. He wanted to get rid of the national reserve and had gotten into some trouble with the US Steel industry for trying to increase their prices.

(There’s obviously so much I could write about here in the background section but I wanna focus this article on mainly the conspiracies surrounding his assassination. I highly recommend that you look more into JFKs life and ideas on your own, he was a really fascinating and forward thinking man for his time.)

November 22nd, 1963

JFK was shot at 12:30pm while riding in his presidential motorcade through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas. The first shot went into his neck and into the shoulder and hand of another passenger in the motorcade. There were three shots total within 6 seconds which… According to the Dallas Police department and the Warren commission, he was shot from behind. Which if you watch the video, (I'll include it here.) It's pretty obvious that he’s shot from the front.

*WARNING* This video is of a JFK being shot. It's pretty grainy but still it could be disturbing to some people.

Let me know if you agree with me, but it really doesn’t seem like he was shot from behind.

Lee Harvey Oswald was accused of assassinating the president. According to the Dallas Police department and the Warren Commission he fired 3 shots within 6 seconds from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository, 265ft through trees into a moving car to kill the president. The gun he allegedly (a Carcano Rifle) used however was not an automatic gun. It was a very old Italian gun that had to be cocked (i'm not sure if that's the right word) and aimed every time. So Lee Harvey Oswald must have been an expert sharpshooter because he had no time to aim after cocking his gun. He also must have done this impossibly fast. He just didn’t have time to do this. The gun he was very old and known to not be a very good gun. Gun experts and sharpshooters have tried to recreate this but they couldn’t do it.

Oswald was a Marine so he was trained to be a good shooter. At the time the Marines had 3 tiers of shooters and Oswald was a marksman, which was the lowest tier. (Today every Marine is a rifleman trained to shoot accurately at 500 yards with an m16 or m14. It was very different back in Oswalds day). Oswald also hadn’t been in the Marines for a long time at that point. So Lee Harvey Oswald, who wasn’t a sharpshooter, allegedly shot from 265ft away, through trees and into a moving target accurately enough, and fast enough, to kill the president, using an old “piece of junk” for a gun….

Near the president's motorcade there was this famous grassy knoll area nearby and many of the eye witnesses who were there, have said that they heard the shots coming from that direction. There were actually police recordings of the shots and two acoustical scientists have studied the recordings and have both concluded that the shots were coming from the grassy knoll area.

Now let's talk about the bullets. Here is a picture of the bullet that allegedly went through the president's neck, through John Connally’s (the other passenger) shoulder, punctured his rib, went through his hand and then went through his thigh.

Looks pretty fucking perfect to me. Normally with this kind of impact the bullet gets damaged or at least shows signs of impacts. This bullet has been referred to as “The Magic Bullet,” because it made a total of 7 wounds through two different people and came out looking like it wasn’t even shot.

The Secret Service also allegedly didn’t appear to be following protocol that day. The street that the president was shot on was 120 degrees (not weather degrees but in terms of physical measurement). Secret Service protocol only allows for there to be 90 degrees because it creates less space for people and makes the president safer.

When the shots were fired, the driver hit the brakes, slowed down, and looked back to watch the kill-shot. It was the direct opposite of their training when even a firecracker goes off near the President. The secret service is supposed to act immediately to anything slightly suspicious. There’s actually a video floating around where you can see that someone motioned the Secret Service to get off the car JFK was in and the service man lifts his hand up in the air all confused. Some people think that this was so they could get a clear shot of Kennedy. The Secret Service members were also allegedly told to stop running along the side of the motorcade. (Secret Service Stand down video here.)

Normally the Secret Service would follow the president in a wedge position which basically means that he is protected on all sides. However on that day, the secret service was in what's known as the “sitting duck” position. Which is exactly what it sounds like, the president was completely unprotected.

After JFK was shot, he was brought to the Parkland Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead at around 2pm. Immediately after he was declared dead the secret service moved his body onto Air Force 1. Which is allegedly illegal. (I’ve seen some sources say that this was illegal, I can’t really confirm this, to me it makes sense that they would move the body onto Air Force 1 but some sources say this was illegal.) The doctors at the hospital also allegedly put up quite a bit of a fight about this and tried to stop the secret service from moving the body.

Only a couple of hours after the shooting, Oswald is immediately taken by police and brought into interrogation. He also was allegedly arrested at a movie theatre, someone called because he didn’t pay for his movie ticket.

During interrogation Oswald kept saying that he wanted a lawyer and that he knew his rights and denied any involvement in the assassination. At around 1am, 12 hours after the president was shot, Oswald was officially charged with the crime.

The assassination happened on a Friday, Oswald is taken into custody and arrested immediately that day (or Saturday at 1am) and then on Sunday. While Oswald was being led out of the jail, surrounded by guards and a crowd of people, was shot by a man named Jack Ruby who just walked up and shot him. Conveniently enough, Jack died in prison not long after.

According to eye witness accounts, after Oswald's body was taken to the morgue the Secret Service went and spent an “abnormally long amount of time there.” Many people think that this was the Secret Service planting his finger prints on the gun because his fingerprints were conventielty not found on the gun until after he was dead.

Many many people do not believe that Lee Harvey Oswald did this. His wife, mom, family and friends all say that he would never do this. Many eye witnesses that day don't even believe that Oswald did it. Oswald also said many times that he was just a patsy and he was denied a lawyer although he had asked for one many times. (It’s your constitutional right as a citizen of the United States to have a lawyer when you're accused of a crime. Oswald was repeatedly denied this). He was confused and there’s recordings of him saying, “I don’t know what this is all about.” When asked if he was in the School Book Depository that day he said, “Naturally, if I work in that building I'm going to be there.”

Experts who have looked at this case over the years have said that there appears to be a lot of tampering. The doctor who took xrays of the president's body has said that he already had X rays of the body before Jackie Kennedy even got out of the ambulance containing JFKs body. Some doctors say that Kennedy’s X Rays, that are in the national archives, are not the X rays that they took that day. Other doctors who took the autopsy pictures also say that the pictures in the national archives are fake and not the pictures that they took of the president's body that day.

A lot of the witnesses that the Warren Commission interviewed have come out and said that their testimony was changed. There were a lot of witnesses there that day, many people claimed that they told investigators that they saw something and heard shots coming from the grassy knoll but that their testimony was changed. One person even said, “I would say yes and they would put down no.” Many many people accuse the FBI, the Warren Commission and the Dallas police department of tampering and fabricating evidence. The Lincoln car that JFK was in that day we refurbished before forensics could even get to it. Oswald was interrogated for 12 hours, yet every note, every recording, every evidence that they allegedly got from him, was all destroyed.

There is so so much more information about this case it would take me two million pages (probably) to write it all, and frankly there’s enough here already to conclude that something sketchy went on.

In 2003 Gallup did a poll on whether or not the American people believed that Lee Harvey Oswald did this and 61% said that they either didn’t think that he was involved or that he wasn’t the only person in on it.

Conspiracies

  • Lyndon was allegedly desperate to become president. And according to the Gallup poll about 20% of the American people believe that he was involved in JFKs death. Allegedly before the Kennedys left for Dallas, Johnson reportedly said to someone on the phone “if the Kennedys go to Dallas they won’t all be coming back.” There’s also a picture of him smiling at someone after it happened. Which is kind of weird. 
    • Some people think that Oswald was in on it to some extent but they switched up the role on him at the last second and he became the pansy. When he wasn’t okay with this and wasn’t going along, they killed him. 
  • An extremely popular theory is that the mafia did it. JFKs brother Robert Kennedy was really cracking down to bring down the mafia. (Robert was assassinated a few years after JFK). A lot of people think that the mafia knew it would be stupid to assassinate Robert first because his brother was literally the president and would have retaliated against them even harder. Also JFK obviously had more power between the two of them. 
    • After JFKs death, Robert was just really never the same. He was incredibly affected by this. He also knew that this was a warning for him to back down on the mafia. 
  • There was a man seen holding an open umbrella right around where Kennedy was shot. It was really sunny and warm that day so holding an umbrella wasn’t necessary and just a weird thing to do. Some people think that maybe the umbrella was tricked out to be the gun that assassinated Kennedy. (this has been debunked but there are a lot of theories out there about the umbrella man.)
  • Some people think that it was actually his bodyguard who was walking behind him who shot him in an accident. (this one doesn’t really make sense to me but its a theory that's out there).
  • Probably the biggest theory is that the government, illuminati, or some other kind of secret powerful society did this. In April 1961 Kennedy gave a speech that included things like, “The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.” (there is a lot more to this you can listen to the full speech here.) 
    • JFK didn’t want there to be any more secrets within the US government. He wanted to dismantle the CIA. In fact he wanted to, “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.” He was all about limiting the power of the federal reserve. He was a change-maker and very radical and different. This threatened the power establishments in the US. 
      • In October 1963 a month before he was shot, he signed the National Security Action Memorandum No. 263 which would have removed thousands of troops from Vietnam by the end of that year and remove all troops who were there by 1965. 
      • War is a huge money maker for governments. The day after Johnson was sworn in, he signed a new memorandum which blocked the memorandum order that JFK had placed. It actually ordered more plans against Vietnam to further push the US into war. 
      • In 1964 the Gulf of Tonkin happened (which is so sketchy and there’s a lot of conspiracies around that but that's a different day) basically it gave a “reason” for the US to fully enter into war with Vietnam. Many people believe that if Kennedy had lived, there would have been no war with Vietnam. 
    • Kennedy didn’t like the Federal Reserve. There's a lot of sketchiness that goes on with that. The US government's massive debt is mostly interest charged by the Federal Reserve for borrowing money. Kennedy was the second president to issue Interest-free money. The first was Abraham Lincoln who was also assassinated and then his assassinator was also killed immediately after. (There’s a ton of similarities between Kennedy and Lincoln, it’s not really necessary for this article but it is interesting.) 

In the End

The assassination shocked the nation and left stunned reactions worldwide. People wept openly and gathered in department stores to watch the television coverage, while others prayed. Traffic in some areas came to a halt as the news spread from car to car. Schools across the United States dismissed their students early.

Kennedy's body was flown back to Washington, D.C., and placed in the East Room of the White House for 24 hours. The following Sunday his coffin was carried on a horse-drawn caisson to the United States Capitol to lie in state. Throughout the day and night, hundreds of thousands of people lined up to view the guarded casket. Representatives from over 90 countries attended the state funeral on Monday, November 25. After the Requiem Mass at St. Matthew's Cathedral, Kennedy was buried at Arlington National Cemetery, just outside Washington in Virginia.

In the end John Fitzgerald Kennedy, died because of a lone gunman with a marksmen degree and an old Italian gun.
