Book Review: The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ

In having completed my reading of Roger Stone’s 2013 Book The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ I expanded my vast knowledge of the murder case of John F. Kennedy rather substantially. And I say this knowing I am already an expert on the subject. I have read and watched so many of the Kennedy conspiracy books and tv documentaries and movies. I have visited Dealey Plaza and walked throughout the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository building. And I’ve written extensively on the subject including Here is why Oswald is Not the Shooter https://mschuettblahblahblah.com/…/here-is-why-oswald-is-n…/ and Oswald Did Not Shoot JFK https://mschuettblahblahblah.com/…/oswald-did-not-shoot-jfk/
Stone has been in the news a lot in the past year because of his connection to Donald Trump and the indictments he faces from the Mueller Investigation. He has been a Republican operative since the 1960s.
The book is well written, and really pulled me in. But it never closed the sale on me. I do believe Lynden Baines Johnson had knowledge and possibly involvement in the assassination of our President. But Stone didn’t prove it. He just made my unverified suspicions stronger.
According to Stone Johnson hated John and Robert Kennedy and the Kennedy brothers hated him. This is not news. But Stone gets deeper into Johnson’s history and character than I’ve ever read. He alleges that Johnson furthered his political career through 7 murders he orchestrated prior to becoming Vice-President. He strongly infers Johnson was corrupt and profited from the Vietnam War thanks to his close associations with Bell Helicopter and Brown and Root. This is also not news in having been claimed in Oliver Stone’s movie JFK thirty years ago.
Stone also does a good job of defending the alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald; who in my opinion is clearly not responsible for Kennedy’s death.
Stone names Malcolm Wallace as the shooter of Kennedy. But he loses credibility because he also alleges a second and possibly third shooter but never names them. Wallace died in 1971 in a car crash (suspicious) near Pittsburg, Texas.
Stone identifies a large number of persons with connections to the Kennedy assassination who died suspiciously near the time of the Warren Commission Report and 14 years later prior to testifying before the House Select Committee on Assassinations.
The book is a great read. If you have an interest in these things go pick it up at your local library, like I did. And while a good book, it’s not a conviction for the clearly diabolical, and power hungry LBJ.
Maybe someday all the files can be released (President Trump?!!!) and we’ll get some answers to this 56 year old crime.

JFK: The Smoking Gun Has Too Many Holes

Last night, Sunday November 3, 2013, the ReelzChannel premiered the first of what are likely to be many JFK Assassination conspiracy documentaries we can expect to see on television this month. And while it provided some very interesting and, dare I say NEW views on who killed and how our 35th president was murdered in Dallas, Texas fifty years ago this month; the show’s conclusions and presentation left too many holes. Doing so will once again lead the conspiracy deniers to stand up for the Warren Commission‘s onerous claim that Lee Harvey Oswald killed John F. Kennedy alone, with nobody else involved. And if that proves to be true the ReelzChannel and the producers of JFK: The Smoking Gun did no favors in efforts to find out the truth.

November 22, 1963 stands as the single most tragic day in United States nearly 250-year-old history because our popular elected leader was taken from us under violent and suspicious circumstances while our nation’s safe guards barely trembled a response. Fifty years later nobody has conclusively determined the guilty parties let alone prosecuted any of them. Those responsible went along their merry way, controlling our country and by extension the rest of the world ever since and right up until this day. And while survey’s show most Americans don’t believe the Warren Commission’s conclusions, few care enough to do anything about it, presumably for fear of public backlash for being labelled conspiracy nuts as

movie Director Oliver Stone was upon the seismic release of his 1991 film JFK.

JFK: The Smoking Gun’s most enthralling piece of fact that heretofore has not been widely publicized is so obvious I find it remarkable it’s never been a central theme of ALL other conspiracy theories prior to now. Former Australian police detective Colin McClaren said in the documentary and in his book of the same name that the infamous “Magic Bullet” theory developed by Warren Commission chief inspector Arlen Spector was in fact possible, accurate and likely. Many, including Stone in his movie, scoffed at the idea that a single bullet fired by Oswald’s rifle from the 6th floor corner window of the Texas School Book Depository building passed cleanly through Kennedy’s neck, then through the jump-seat chair in front of him striking Texas Governor John Connelly in the back, shattering a rib bone, exiting his chest and striking and breaking Connelly’s left wrist bone, and ultimately embedding 2 inches deep in the Governor’s thigh. The “full-metal-jacket” bullet was later retrieved in nearly pristine condition from a stretcher in Parkland Hospital where Connelly and Kennedy were taken after the shooting; and where the bullet was presumed to have fallen out of the leg.

McClaren then points out what nearly everyone, including the “Oswald did it crowd”, agrees upon. The fatal head shot that killed Kennedy was NOT a full metal jacket bullet, but was instead a hollow-point or exploding bullet. A Dum-dum bullet explains why Kennedy’s head exploded, and why the bullet itself was never retrieved but bullet fragments were. So here’s the obvious point everyone for 50 years has missed. If the magic bullet was a full metal Jacket, and the head shot bullet was a Dum-dum doesn’t it just make sense that there were two shooters. What sense would it make for a firearm to be loaded with two different types of bullets? Experts agree…such a practice is NEVER done. Therefore the conclusion…two different bullets…two different guns…two different shooters…and by definition we have a conspiracy. 

The John F. Kennedy Assassination

McClaren’s work follows that of author and ballistics expert, the late Howard Donahue. Donahue’s theory that a Secret Service agent in the car behind Kennedy fired the fatal head shot was recounted in his 1992 book Mortal Error. Donahue’s book as with the documentary last night said the shot was fired accidentally by an agent that was retrieving an AR-15 rifle upon hearing the first shots from the Texas School Book Depository. While the theory credibly outlines a believable scenario that the shot came from behind the President at or near ground level, and that Secret Service Agent George Hickey did possess the weapon at or about the time of the head wound, they provided zero information as to why they thought the shot was accidental versus intentional.  Given the massive cover-up that followed a pre-planned assassination involving Hickey and others in the Secret Service is far more believable than a spur-of-the-moment, reactionary but effective cover-up that McClaren and Donahue allege. They would have us believe that after accidentally discharging a rifle and mortally wounding the President of the United States the Secret Service Agents conspired in the car while driving a few, short minutes to Parkland Hospital all that was necessary to keep such a fact a secret. Preposterous!

So rather than latching onto the hard and verifiable facts of the case which include:

2 different bullets used.

At least 10 eye witnesses at ground level claim to smell gun smoke at the scene (impossible if the shots are fired 6 floors up and nearly 100 yards from the crime).

A Secret Service Agent in possession of a weapon and in position to commit the crime.

…and much more.

…those wanting to defend the status quo and keep their heads buried in the sand will just call McClaren and Donahue nuts; and justice will again be denied.

In February 2013 while attending AdvoCare Success School I visited Dealey Plaza, site of the crime of the century, and I walked throughout the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building. As I detailed in my blog Lee Harvey Oswald May Not Be Innocent, But He’s Not the Shooter of JFKOswald didn’t fire the fatal shot, or any shots that day. Evidence defending that claim includes a lack of Oswald finger prints in the snipers nest or on the weapon itself; a failed paraffin test on Oswald’s hands to determine if he had fired ANY weapon that day (including the alleged killing of Dallas police officer J. D. Tippet), and for me most certainly the impossibility that Oswald could traverse the distance from the snipers nest to the building’s 2nd Floor lunch room in the time necessary before he was seen there, calm, cool and collected, a mere 90-seconds after the last shot was fired.

It’s easy to dismiss the conspiracy allegations and go along our merry way ignoring the cabal that’s run, or treacherously effected this country in the past 50 years. Everybody does it. But ask yourself this: if you’re willing to ignore the obvious facts pointing to a conspiracy in the death of John F. Kennedy what makes you think those same dark influences aren’t steering this country and your life and life choices to this very day? Why wouldn’t they?

Oswald Did Not Shoot JFK!

The sixth floor corner window of the Texas School Book Depository Building

THE crime of the 20th Century was without a doubt the killing of this nation’s President in Dallas 50 years ago this year. John F. Kennedy was shot twice, once in the head, while riding through Dealey Plaza in that Texas city November 22, 1963. The first official government investigation of the shooting determined that former Marine Lee Harvey Oswald fired three shots from the corner sixth floor window of the Texas School Book Depository Building, hitting JFK with those two shots. They determined that Oswald acted alone; that there was no conspiracy. This remains the prevailing story of the government and history.

After walking all over Dealey Plaza and the sixth and seventh floor of the museum that now exists in the downtown Dallas building where Oswald was employed I’m here to tell you the story is a complete lie. A fabrication with no truth to it at all. And what’s most disturbing is how pervasive the lie is, how accepted it is, and how nobody of prominence has ever walked the simple steps I walked to determine, as I have, that Lee Harvey Oswald could not have done what the Warren Commission and other subsequent investigations claim he did. And my fear is that if it could happen once it could happen again; and probably already has.

The 50th Anniversary of the Crime of the (Last) Century will undoubtedly bring out much about this story and many conspiracy theories. We’ll hear about the Grassy Knoll and Oswald in New Orleans, the CIA, the Mafia, Fidel Castro and a few others I’ve forgotten about or don’t care to mention and give credence. I’ll offer a thought or two on what I think may have happened but ultimately I don’t know. I just know it didn’t happen as we’ve all been bush-whacked into believing.

The Zapruder film showing the murder of our 35th President gives all of us a definitive time frame in which we can see how long it took to fire the deadly shots. This first video shows the shooting with no commentary and in real-time (as best I can determine). It shows that the three shots were all fired in 6 seconds.

This is a higher quality version of the Zapruder film, slowed down and zoomed in.

As you probably know and can now see the final of three (supposedly) shots fired was the most accurate while also being the one in which the moving target was furthest away from the Texas School Book Depository. So we’re expected to believe that Oswald fired three shots from a manual bolt-action Mannlicher Carcano rifle in only 6 seconds, and the final furthest shot is the most accurate. A white “X” marks the spot in the street at Dealey Plaza where the fatal head shot occurred. It’s 265 feet, or 81 yards, from the window.

As unlikely or improbable as this scenario is, it’s not the basis for my utter disbelief in the Warren Commission’s claim that Oswald shot Kennedy from the 6th Floor of the Texas School Book Depository. No, my firm belief was solidified in concrete when I walked throughout the museum now occupying the 6th floor, and looked out the adjacent window as well as the upstairs (7th floor) window closest to the alleged sniper’s nest. My certainty comes not from an unlikelihood that Oswald could do the shooting, but from the impossibility of the timing involved in what happened after the shooting. My certainty is so much easier to explain and comprehend. And I’ll do it in my next blog.
