The Grassy Knoll
It has been obvious for years that the murder of President John F. Kennedy was a massive conspiracy. How could such an even have been caused by one ratbrained guy who had a sudden opportunity, a cheap rifle, and a pathetic desire to DO something in his worthless life? Sheer nonsense, right?
Devoted JFK researchers have, over the years, evaluated many possibilities. Most respected researchers now believe that Lyndon Johnson wanted to be president, and he got the Trilateral Commisson’s backing. The Trilaterals (who have since become “The Deep State”) called in some favors from the Mafia, and arranged to use the space aliens at Area 51 to make the hit.
Lately this theory has been challenged by evidence from a still from the Zapruder film (see photo), in which we see another suspicious subject in the area at the time of the shooting. This (“The Single Quickie-Mart Theory”) is currently being investigated.
So let’s look at some facts. We’ll do pro-Oswald-lone-gunman, and then pro-conspiracy:
- There is literally not ONE SINGLE PIECE of physical evidence for any other explanation. NOT ONE.
- There is no credible evidence for a conspiracy–NONE. Refute me if you can. And how would you be able to cover up such a conspiracy for 60 years?
- Oswald purchased and had in his possession the rifle that was unquestionably the murder weapon. It had his palm print on it.
- Oswald took the rifle with him to work that day, and Ruth Paine confirmed that it had been there before, and missing after, the murder.
- Oswald didn’t expect to return from the killing; he left money for Marina and his wedding ring when he went to kill JFK.
- Oswald qualified as “marksman” in the marines, shooting at targets 200, 300, and 500 yards away. Kennedy was 70 yards away, traveling slowly almost straight away–a simple shot.
- “Nobody could aim and fire that quickly, it’s been tried.” It has been tried and many test shooters have beaten Oswald’s time and accuracy. Ollie Stone’s movie lied.
- “The Mannlicher-Carcano was a crappy old gun!” It was used by the Italian police until the 1980s, and in African wars until 2010 at least. And if it WERE a crappy old gun, why would a conspiracy use it instead of a modern deer rifle? Oswald couldn’t afford anything better.
- Oswald admitted that he tried to kill a crazy right-wing retired air force general with that rifle.
- After killing Kennedy, Oswald ran to get his handgun, began to flee, and shot an innocent Dallas cop who had the bad luck to stop him.
- AND: If YOU were running a conspiracy, would YOU pick a ratbrained loser like Oswald to do anything important?
- “Washington phone service was blacked out for hours!” [No it wasn’t. There were delays in getting a dial tone, nothing unusual then, and you can read any number of personal tales from that day of people who were on the phone immediately]
- “The shooter on the Grassy Knoll!” [Not a bit of evidence for that. Shooters there would have been in plain sight of the man in the railroad tower. They would have shown up in dozens of photos. No physical evidence was found.]
- “His head snapped BACK!” [LOOK at the Zapruder film, note JFK’s head. Measure its location in each still. You can CLEARLY see it snap forward as the bullet hits, and then to the back when the tissue is blown out. You can also tell from the fragments going FORWARD, clearly visible in the photos.]
- “But the ‘Magic Bullet!'” [Oliver Stone grossly distorted that–openly lied about it, in fact. Do some reading, don’t watch a bullshit lying movie.]
- “OK, you brought it up–what about the JFK movie?” [About 80% of it was simply made up, total fiction. Movie critic Richard Roeper: “One can admire Stone’s filmmaking skills … while denouncing the utter crapola presented as ‘evidence’ of a conspiracy.” Washington Post columnist George Will called Stone “a man of technical skill, scant education and negligible conscience.” There are tons of articles about how much of ‘JFK’ is lying bullshit–do some reading, OK?]
- “What about Jim Garrison and On the Trail of the Assassins?” [When Garrison actually brought legal action against Clay Shaw, it was laughed out of court. Garrison was a nutcase and publicity seeker.]
- “But what about …?” [Stay down and wait for the 10-count, moron.]
There is not ONE SINGLE PIECE of physical evidence, or one credible piece of testimony, to support a conspiracy. Not one. And if you’re stupid enough to believe in a JFK conspiracy, you’re probably also a Flat-Earther and an anti-vaxxer. Go away.
