JFK 50th: The keys to understanding his assassination

by Jim Fetzer


On 22 November 2013, the Oswald Innocence Campaign will be hosting the premiere event to commemorate the 50th observance of the JFK assassination in Santa Barbara, CA, at the FessParker Doubletree Hotel (1-10:30 PM). Presenting cutting-edge research on the death of our 35th President, which holds the keys to understanding what took place, it will feature some of the best authors on some the most important evidence that clarifies and illuminates that tragic event in Dallas on 22 November 1963.

The research presented will advance extensive, detailed evidence establishing that the assassination of JFK was a “national security event”, which involved crucial elements of the most powerful institutions in the American government, including the CIA, the Joint Chiefs, the FBI and the Secret Service, who conspired with the Mafia, anti-Castro Cubans and Texas oil men to remove JFK from office and replace his policies with those of Lyndon Baines Johnson.

As Ralph Cinque has observed, this November 22nd, the government and the media are going to be going all out with the “official” lies about JFK–and with extreme prejudice. They are going to pull out all the stops to promote indefensible and long-disproven claims–-one more stomach-churning time. What can we do to stand up to this evil pomposity? We can literally stand together–in Santa Barbara. We can come together and evoke the call for JFK truth. Even the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA), itself a formal entity of the US government, rejected The Warren Report and concluded there had been a second gunman on the grassy knoll and that JFK was probably killed as the result of a conspiracy.

If the HSCA can reject the original version of the lie, then surely we can reject its newer reincarnation. The assassination of JFK was a national security event. This was not the work of one man. Oswald didn’t do it. Elements of the government were responsible. A coup d-etat took place in 1963, and we have been living with the results of it for half a century–with millions of dead across the globe. With his loss, the US became a perpetual warfare state, and we live every day of our lives with the consequences of that monstrous fact. So, join us on this very special day to find strength in numbers, to make a blip on the national radar and take personal responsibility for disseminating the truth about JFK.

What you weren’t supposed to ever know

The evidence that substantiates the scenario of the assassination as a national security event is extensive and compelling.  It has generated enormous resistance even within the JFK community, where several of those who will present their findings have been banned in a massive effort to suppress the truth and preserve the illusion that it was an event of a different kind, where the view that “the Mafia did it” or “the Cubans did it” or “the KGB did it” are frequently advanced, but where none of them could have effected the cover-up that was indispensable to convey the false impressions this conference will correct:

*  Lee Harvey Oswald was working for the government when he was framed for the death of JFK

* Photos and films allegedly taken during the assassination were altered to conceal the truth 

* Autopsy photos and X-rays were changed and faked to support a false account of the murder

* LBJ was a pivotal player–perhaps the pivotal player–who brought about the assassination

* George H.W. Bush was not only in Dealey Plaza but took an active role in carrying out the plot

* There were multiple shooters who tied the conspirators together to insure their mutual silence

* They included a Deputy Sheriff, an Air Force expert, an anti-Casto Cuban, a Police Officer and a Mafia shooter 

* LBJ’s personal hit-man, who killed a dozen people for Lyndon, also appears to have been directly involved

* The Mafia could not have extended its reach into Bethesda Naval Hospital to alter X-rays and photographs

* Anti-Castro Cubans would have been unable to substitute someone else’s brain for that of JFK

* While the KGB had the capability to alter films, it could not have gained access to the Zapruder film

The experts assembled for this unique conference–which will explain how it was done, who was responsible and why, and how it was covered up–have invested decades upon decades of their lives to research on crucial aspects of the case, including the medical, the ballistic, and the film and photographic evidence.  They include the leading authorities on the role of Lyndon Baines Johnson, on the involvement of George H.W. Bush, on the management of the cover-up, on the death of key witnesses intimately related to JFK and by others who personally knew the man accused of killing him.  If you are there, you will understand what went down.

It’s Santa Barbara, not Dallas, for the 50th

The 8 hour program will consist of 6 1/2 hours of informative presentations followed by 1 1/2 hours of music, socializing, dancing, and fun. We will be commemorating but also celebrating both our awareness of JFK truth, our strong conviction that that truth shall prevail and that the “official fabrication” that Lee Harvey Oswald murdered JFK shall not endure. We have chosen Santa Barbara because Dallas is going to be run “tighter than a drum” with regard to its public events and, in relation to research, the meetings to be held there will be dominated by nostalgia for the past, not by cutting-edge research.

Our stand is unequivocal: the hit was ordered by the highest levels of government, including key figures in the CIA, the FBI, the US military and from within Kennedy’s own administration, including his own Vice President, Lyndon B. Johnson. Precisely as he claimed, Oswald was “a patsy”:  he was framed to distract attention from those who were responsible.  He was even captured in a famous photograph standing in the doorway at the time of the shots, which is one of the key findings that the government has tried to suppress for the past 50 years.  We will present proof making all of this beyond a reasonable doubt.

The exact site is the elegant Fess Parker Doubletree Hotel, which is right on the beach in the resort area of Santa Barbara. It is a spectacular 5-star hotel. The program will be presented from 1-5:30 PM, with an hour and a half break for dinner, and then continue from 7-9 PM, followed socializing and dancing, with music by The Pacific Coast Blues Band, including a performance of their new song, “He Didn’t Do It”, an anthem for JFK truth. The conference will also include a photographic exhibit with large productions of detailed studies by Richard Hooke, Ralph Cinque, Donald Fallon and Larry Rivera.  For information about reservations, send an email to Ralph Cinque at oswaldinnocent@yahoo.com. It is advisable to book space early.


THE SPEAKERS: “JFK: The Assassination of America”


1-2 PM: Phil Nelson, “The Pivotal Role of LBJ in the Death of JFK”

Phillip F. Nelson is the author of LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination (2nd revised edition, 2011), in which he explains that Lyndon Baines Johnson was the cardinal instigator of the plot to kill JFK. LBJ forced his way onto the ticket as the Vice Presidential nominee in Los Angeles in 1960, telling reporters that he had studied history and had discovered that 1/4 of US Presidents had not survived their terms.  He said he was “a gambling man”, but LBJ only bet on sure things. Phillip explains how Johnson was uniquely positioned to assemble the key men–from the financiers to the operational planners and the cover-up experts–to complete the job. And it was all done at the expense of a “patsy” named Lee Harvey Oswald.

2-3 PM: John Hankey, “What was George H.W. Bush doing in Dealey Plaza?”

John Hankey, an expert on the role of George H.W. Bush in the assassination of JFK, has produced and directed “JFK II: The Bush Connection” (2003), which is also known as “Dark Legacy: George Bush and the Murder of John Kennedy”.  He also authored “Was George H.W. Bush involved in the assassination of JFK?” (2011).  John has been teaching history and English in the Los Angeles City school system for nearly three decades, including exploring alternative approaches that suggest revisions to what passes for “history” in the courses and texts that are used for instruction in American history.

3-4 PM: Peter Janney, “Tying Up Loose Ends: The Murder of Mary Meyer”

Peter Janney grew up in Washington D.C. during the Cold War era of the 1950s and 1960s. His father Wistar was a senior career CIA official. The Janney family was intimately involved with many of the Washington political elite that included the family of Mary and Cord Meyer, as well as other high-ranking CIA officials such as Richard Helms, James Jesus Angleton, Tracy Barnes, Desmond FitzGerald, and William Colby. In his gripping book, Mary’s Mosaic (2012), Peter illuminates the magnitude of real-life evil perpetrated by the CIA far beyond that which most of us could never imagine. A graduate of Princeton, Peter is a clinical psychologist who lives by the sea in Beverly, Massachusetts.

4:00-5 PM: Larry Rivera, “The Pervasive Role of Buell Wesley Frazier”

Larry Rivera, the son of a career military man who served as CID officer in the Army, was residing in Germany on 22 November  1963 and, at age 6, will never forget his father’s reaction upon hearing of JFK’s murder: “Johnson!” Larry is a Certified Network Engineer, who also owns an automotive wholesale parts business. He has made a lifelong study of the JFK assassination.  He first visited Dealey Plaza in 1991 and  subsequently attended The ASK Symposium in 1993 for the 30th observance. He has done extensive work on Billy Lovelady and on Joe Molina and recently published on Buell Wesley Frazier and the Altgens6.


5-5:30 PM: Judyth Vary Baker, “Lee H. Oswald and JFK: My Reflections”

Judyth Vary Baker, a brilliant science student from Manatee High School, Bradenton, FL, was recruited by Dr. Alton Ochsner to come to New Orleans and contribute to a research project to develop a rapidly-acting cancer that could be used as a bio-weapon to assassinate Fidel Castro.  She became involved with Lee H. Oswald, David Ferrie and Dr. Mary Sherman, where her life at that time has been recorded in a fascinating book by Edward Haslam, Dr. Mary’s Monkey (2007) and in her own autobiographical study, Me & Lee (2011). She has published a new book on David Ferrie (2013). A bio-sketch of Judyth may be found at amazon.com, while many video interviews with her have been gathered together and linked to a special issue of assassinationresearch.com. Judyth will appear via Skype.



7-8:00 PM: Ralph Cinque, “Oswald in the doorway: The bedrock of JFK truth”

RalphRalph C. Cinque has worked in the health field as a chiropractor and health spa operator, and he is the former president of an international physicians’ group. Ralph has also been an avid student of the JFK assassination for many years, and he has had a series of articles on the assassination published on Veterans Today and on LewRockwell.com.  It was his observation that the clothing that Doorman was wearing rather than his facial features was the key to his identification, which has proven to be exactly right.  He has been the moving force behind and the founder of the Oswald Innocence Campaign.

8-9:00 PM: James H. Fetzer, “JFK: The Assassination of America”

James H. Fetzer, Ph.D., a former Marine Corps officer and McKnight University Professor Emeritus on the Duluth Campus of the University of Minnesota, has chaired or co-chaired four national conferences on the death of JFK.

    All the previous links I’ve tried to post that would implicate Jackie have been banned. Why is that; are people afraid of an honest discussion. So I’m sure this will be banned as well.

    Jackie loved Jack? I’m afraid that if that’s your mindset, it will inhibit your ability to search dispassionately for the truth. You have to be willing follow all the leads, no matter how distasteful, review the “evidence”, and then make up your mind.

    I think Gregg Hallett is correct; Jackie was a Mossad agent.

    She was an MKULTRA sex slave who was selected to marry into the Kennedy Clan. I bet her MKULTRA handler was Aristotle Onassis. I wonder if this kind of sex slave is called the Black Widow.


    Scroll down to the very bottom and watch the video; it’s imbedded in the link. Then make up your own mind.


    [quote]The blogs that I got this info from and have far more detail are:


    Jackie’s partner after Onassis until she died was Maurice Tempelsmen, chairman of Lazare-Kaplan-International Inc.[/quote]

    • Jim Fetzer  June 24, 2013 at 5:59 am

      I have taken a look at the links you provide.
      There is no evidence in the X-rays or the
      autopsy photographs or the Zapruder film
      that JFK was shot from the lower-left. It
      just isn’t there. And the claims made re
      the Zapruder film ignore that the film was
      massively edited and revised and cannot
      be taken as reliable without doing a great
      deal of research on the eyewitnesses and
      the medical and ballistic evidence. Surely
      the faint marks being alleged to be bullets
      are not adequate and otherwise explainable.

      The interpretation of photos and films can
      be very subtle and complex. Certainly,
      what you have here is worthless. The was
      hit in the back by a shot that hit him about
      5.5″ below the collar just to the right of the
      spinal column. Surely Jackie did not fire
      that shot with the derringer, as you suggest.

      He was hit in the throat by a bullet that had
      passed through the windshield and made the
      sound of a firecracker passing through. He
      is seen clutching his throat in the famous
      photograph taken by James “Ike” Altgens,
      which has been altered in other areas but
      appears to be authentic and is supported by
      witnesses from Parkland. Surely Jackie did
      not fire that shot, either, with her derringer.

      After William Greer, the driver, brought the
      limo to a halt to make sure JFK would be
      killed, he was hit twice in the head, once
      in the back of the head by a shot fired from
      the Dal-Tex. He fell forward and Jackie
      eased him back up and was looking him
      right in the face when he was hit in the
      right-temple by a frangile (or exploding)
      bullet that created shockwaves that blew
      his brains out the back of his head to the
      left rear with such force that, when Officer
      Bobby Hargis who was riding there was
      struck by the debris, he initially thought
      that he himself had been shot. Jackie
      cannot have fired either of those shots.

      But those are all the shots for which we
      have evidence. If you have more, share
      it. Have you ever actually studied the
      medical or the ballistic evidence or the
      eyewitness testimony? You have taken
      a few frames from the Nix film showing
      part of his reaction to the shot to the
      right-temple and interpreted them as if
      they showed that Jackie had shot him,
      when there is nothing to support it.

      My recommendation is that you take
      time to actually study the evidence.
      This is the most complex murder in
      history and much of the evidence has
      been altered, fabricated or faked. I
      have three books of expert studies,

      Assassination Science (1998)
      Murder in Dealey Plaza (2000)
      The Great Zapruder Film Hoax (2003)

      but you might begin with these two,

      “Dealey Plaza Revisited: What happened to JFK?”

      “What happened to JFK–and why it matters today”

      More recently, I have published these
      two studies that discuss the latest on
      the Altgens photo I mention above,
      which was altered in the area of the
      doorway to obfuscate the presence of
      Lee Oswald, the designated patsy:
      “JFK Part 1: A National Security Event – Oswald didn’t do it”

      “JFK Part 2: A National Security Event – How it was done”

      Jackie did climb out to reach for a chunk
      of his skull and brains, which she kept in
      her hand until Parkland when, after his body
      was pried out of her arms, she would enter
      Trauma Room #1 and extend her hand to
      “Pepper” Jenkins, the anaesthesiologist,
      and ask, “Will this help?”, which is the
      most poignant moment in the history of
      the assassination. So I may have missed
      your alternative take on what she was doing.

      The list of the participants at the ratification
      meeting is fascinating, however, and highly
      consistent with everything I know about that
      event. The supporting link to a JFKresearch
      website–would that beJFKresearch.com?–
      however, does not work. If you have more
      about that, I would be glad to hear about it.
      And I would be glad to correspond further.

    • Jim Fetzer  June 23, 2013 at 10:08 am

      This is just crack-pot stuff. Jackie loved Jack. She had nothing
      to do with the assassination. She cradled him in her arms all the
      way to Parkland. I cannot print rubbish of this magnitude. No more.

    • Jim Fetzer  June 24, 2013 at 6:04 am

      I accept that criticism and have responded in another post,
      which I have added. I agree that even odd theories deserve
      to be examined, since we cannot know without exploring them
      whether or not they might be true. In this case, I ought to have
      spelled out how we know what happened to JFK and why it
      appears to be wrong to think that Jackie shot him. So I hope
      this helps as a guideline to facts that have been established
      against which other theories of his death must be evaluated.

  2. mevashir  June 17, 2013 at 8:46 am

    Dr. Fetzer,

    I had not realized that you are a JFK assassination researcher. I thought 9-11 was your focus.

    Do you believe we actually landed men on the moon? I find the claims to the contrary very pesuasive, especially the evidence of doctored photos from the “lunar surface.”

    Given that it is possible the lunar landing mission was a fraud, isn’t it possible that this exposes that much of JFK”s agenda was deceitful and fraudulent? Perhaps the man deserved to die after all for deluding the American public with his youth looks and charm?

    • Jim Fetzer  June 17, 2013 at 11:18 am

      Since I have more than two dozen articles about JFK here on Veterans Today alone, I suppose I should not be surprised that you know so little about our 35th president! He was threatening to shatter the CIA into a thousand pieces, and thereby antagonized the agency. He had not invaded Cuba, contrary to their unanimous recommendation; had signed an above ground test ban treaty with the Soviet Union against their unanimous opposition; and was pulling our forces out of Vietnam, where the Joint Chiefs believed a stand had to be taken against the expansion of international, godless communism.

      He was cracking down on organized crime for the first time in its history, thereby antagonizing the Mafia. He had directed the Department of the Treasury to print United States Notes in lieu of the FED printing Federal Reserve notes, thereby earning the enmity of the Eastern banking establishing. He was planning to cut the oil depletion allowance, which infuriated the Texas oil men. If you can find a president in US history who was doing more to benefit the American people, I would be astounded.

      His death paved the way for a succession of presidents who reversed his policies and benefitted the rich, which included Johnson, Nixon, Ford, GHWB and W, who would never have been taken seriously but for his father having preceded him. You might check out “Dealey Plaza Revisited: What happened to JFK?” and “What happened to JFK–and why it matters today”. You need to get up-to-speed if you are going to issue blanket assertions like these, which, alas, only display your ignorance.

    • mevashir  June 18, 2013 at 8:08 am

      I accept all you state about him above. I was only 5 years old at the time of the assassination, yet I still can remember details of that day. It was a defining moment for me like so many of us.

      JFK sounds like an enormous idealist. Yet it doesn’t make sense to me. His own father was an ultra establishment figure. The Mafia supposedly delivered the (bogus) votes to him in 1960. Why would he alienate those on whom he had depended?

      And what about RFK’s covert program to get rid of Castro?

      You did not answer my question about the moon missions. I will take silence as possible consent.

      As a former Marine officer, surely you will agree that perhaps the most important role of government is to kill: either via its military apparati, its domestic police powers and judiciary, etc. JFK stupidly alienated all the professional killers in his administration. Until I read your articles on VT I never had a clue how much JFK seemed to cross them. Now I am amazed that he lasted as long as he did.

    • mevashir  June 18, 2013 at 11:15 am

      Dr. Fetzer,

      This quote from VT’s Dean Henderson’s latest article illustrates the enigma of JFK. Why did his top advisors pursue this agenda if JFK was so determined to demilitarize society? Something just does not ring true. JFK may have been as wicked as the others, and the assassination was simply a gangster food fight:

      Report from Iron Mountain

      In 1961 Kennedy Administration officials McGeorge Bundy, Robert McNamara and Dean Rusk, all CFR and Bilderberger members, led a study group which looked into “the problem of peace”. The group met at Iron Mountain, a huge underground corporate nuclear shelter near Hudson, New York, where CFR think tank The Hudson Institute is located. The bunker contains redundant offices in case of nuclear attack for Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell and JP Morgan Chase. [5] A copy of the group discussions, known as Report from Iron Mountain, was leaked by a participant and published in 1967 by Dial Press.

      The report’s authors saw war as necessary and desirable stating “War itself is the basic social system, within which other secondary modes of social organization conflict or conspire. (War is) the principal organizing force…the essential economic stabilizer of modern societies.” The group worried that through “ambiguous leadership” the “ruling administrative class” might lose its ability to “rationalize a desired war”, leading to the “actual disestablishment of military institutions”.

    • mevashir  June 18, 2013 at 11:16 am

      Here’s the Henderson link:

    jfk was an elite insider/actor whose death was faked. this psy-op was the blueprint for
    the 9/11 fakery extravaganza. anyone who isn’t convinced of this just hasn’t bothered their
    arse to look hard enough. http://letsrollforums.com/jfk-murder-staged-event-t23127.html .
    jim dismisses culto’s conclusive research just like he dismisses
    other research proving that very few if any real victims died on 9/11, most being computer
    generated entities with no basis in reality. are you really the real deal jim? wouldn’t you rather
    have the truth, no matter where it takes you? why don’t you do an article demolishing culto’s ‘ridiculous’ assertions? or is the extensive research done on this pivotal of issues not worthy of your attention? btw. ed charini, who worked with grosden for years now claims that he was duped and has come to realises that jfk’s (and oswald’s) death were faked/staged affairs. you should have him on your show again jim to discuss these truths.

    • Jim Fetzer  June 16, 2013 at 6:48 am

      This is another crackpot theory right up there with “Jackie shot JFK” and “The assassin was shooting from the trunk”! Those who don’t know the evidence are vulnerable to being taken in. His brains were splattered all across the trunk. Bobby Hargis, who was riding to the left/rear, was hit so hard by the brains and debris that he initially thought he himself had been shot. A large triangular piece of his skull was found in the grass to the left of where the limo had stopped the following day. This is simply absurd.

      The medical, ballistic, witness and photographic evidence converges in a single, coherent account of what actually happened–once you separate the authentic from the fabricated evidence. If anything like the song-and-dance we are given here were true, then why would there be so many inconsistencies in the evidence? The conjecture that William Greer (the driver) shot JFK looks like a model of reason compared with this, where his brains would then have been blown out to the right/rear instead of to the left/rear.

      In this case, the argument is based upon appeals to the extant version of the Zapruder film, which was massively revised because Greer pulled the limo to the left and to a halt to make sure that JFK would be killed. He was hit twice in the head during that interval: once in the back of the head (and he slumped forward); Jackie eased him back up and was looking him right in the face when he was hit for the second time in the right temple by a frangible or exploding bullet. Those who have seen “the other film” have confirmed our conclusions about what occurred.

      He slumped to the side, but those who were editing the film took out too many frames (in this instance) and created the false impression of a violent motion back-and-to-the-left, which none of the witnesses reported–because it hadn’t happened as it is portrayed in the film. See, for example, “JFK: Who’s telling the truth: Clint Hill or the Zapruder film?” or “Did Zapruder film ‘the Zapruder film’?” Or visit the on-line journal for advanced study of the death of JFK I co-edigt with John P. Costella at http://assassinationresearch.com and review the articles there.

      The inconsistencies arise because there was A REAL EVENT which had to be obfuscated by A FAKE VERSION. If the whole thing had been faked, it would have been easy to create a single, coherent account that was not CONTRADICTED BY AUTHENTIC EVIDENCE. For further discussion and illustrations, see “Dealey Plaza Revisited: What happened to JFK?”, http://www.und.nodak.edu/instruct/jfkconference/UNDchapter30.pdf or “What happened to JFK–and why it matters today”, http://noliesradio.org/archives/40500‎ This theory is indefensible.

  4. jonathanmark  June 15, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    This is the sort of event and article that needs to be spread far and wide. Thank you Jim. I will be showing John Hankey’s film at a Main Street Greenfield Cinema in MA on November 21. On the 22nd at Greenfield Community Television, we will have a panel and open forum on the impact of that day 50 years ago, and for us old timers, some memories, and about our awakening to the 1963 US coup d’etat. More on all this at my web site http://www.FlybyNews.com and will be posting a link here under Critical News and Events.

  5. Solfeggio  June 14, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    i live in LA so such a “party” would be convenient, and ignores the spectacle in Dallas, but I feel it will be ultimately self indulgent. I always imagined a million man march on DC that dy. Not with rifles, but with everybody, literally millions of Americans.

    But then again, I don’t see JFK as a ritual of always making the case, but rather enacting some form of civic revolt akin to the shot heard ’round the world.

    You can turn this day into another series of lectures, or you can associate this event with everything else wrong, and use it as the fulcrum by which we unite all movements:peace, truth, tea party, occupy, whatever. Its the JFK call to action, not to dance… in my mind anyway.

    And why give up the publicity war so easily?

  6. Terry McKibbin  June 14, 2013 at 6:58 am


    I am 100% in your camp on this historical revelation, having read most of your written presentations, Phil Nelson’s book, listened to Madeleine Brown’s testimony, watched significant hours of video of the testimonies of others such as Saint John Hunt, and multiple documentaries on the topic and historical events surrounding JFK’s assassination. I cannot afford to be there, but I will be advocating and advertising this conference to everyone that I possibly can.

    You, Jim, have my ultimate respect and intellectual support for the work you have done and continue to do in this pivotal period. I appreciate your and others’ particular emphasis on the tragic and monumental impact that the conspiracy against JFK and his emerging policies has had upon this nation and the people of the world-at-large.

    From the depth of my heart and the breadth of my mind – thank you!

    • Jim Fetzer  June 14, 2013 at 7:11 am


      Thank you for this heart-felt note, which I and those with whom I collaborate appreciate profoundly.

      Warm regards,

    Mr Fetzer, I first came across you on You Tube with an extremely tedious set of talks from a Duluth conference on the Zapruder tape. All the presenters clearly respected you. My gut tells me your heart is in the right place and I think we all remember you standing firm on the Boston Bombing dialogue on this website.

    I saw Amy Goodman have Loose Change (#1) on her show many years back. You Tube again, (I dont think the bad guys can control You Tube that well). There was a USG guy there refuting it on her show. I’d like to think it was at that point she got a gun pointed to her head. She was silent but of course had invited the directors to her show to promote awareness of 911 and then shut up once the other guy arrived perhaps. matbe someone knows who he was. But I dont watch her show anymore. Some of her pet projects got tiring.

    Will any representatives of the lapdog media be in Santa Barbara Jim? Wonder if someone can hogtie Amy Goodman. Of course what good could she possibly do? All she does is turn and run whenever someone mentions 9/11 (rofl).

    I’m definitely going by the way. Is just a matter of whether I stay at the Motel 6 next to Fess Parker hotel or with family. I haven’t checked out the prices at Fess Parker yet. Probably out of the league of a starving musician lol

      Lee, Glad to have you coming to the conference. Let’s leave the feminism issue for another place and time.

      You’re absolutely right. Sorry for the digression. Seems so easy to go off on a tangent.

    JFK had to eliminated because too many people were threatened by his policies of common sense and logic. The mighty cowardice of the CIA, the hypocrisy of J.E. Hoover of the FBI, the fear of losing millions of oil depletion dollars by the oil men of Dallas, the black children going to school with the white children, a president giving blacks equal rights despite the guarantees in the Constitution; imbecilic Cuban resentment since he did not support Bush/Nixon horrendously disastrous plan to invade Cuba, effectively communicating with the Soviets (who could he trust back then????), and achieving and protecting YOUR children from the perils of war; thumb-sucking steel corporations since they did nto get their way on the price hike, deportation of Marcello, Trafficante, Roselli mafioso’s getting weakened, etc., etc., etc.

    He was cleaning up the messes left by Eisenhower/Nixon, Truman. He was doing what a real president does, for the good of the country, not business, not corporate, not small interests groups. For the people as the Sonstitutioni states. he was real and genuine, and he cared.

    They had to get him for he, Bobby, and Teddy stood in their way of what is taking place today.

    Even if you didn’t take part in the assassination you dare not speak a word of warning for, like all cowards, they work in secret, behind a curtain, never seen. LBJ was one. No part in the planning, no part in the events, no part in scheduling, none. All he had to was wait on his turn, and that Friday, November 22nd, 1963 was the day Vice president Lyndon Baines Johnson could control it all.

    It is why he destroyed evidence. It is why he made such a ceremony in taking the oath. It is why he distracted everyone, and made so many calls. It is why the assassin was not important to any of the law enforcement officials. It was why Oswald’s prints weren’t found on their rifle the first time it was tested. It was why the Zapruder film was altered so terribly (the original shows it all without the alterations.) It was why J.E. Hoover had to step in and contain and confine a lot of evidence. it was why he went to the races the day after the cowards pulled the trigger.

    It is why to this day, neither President Bush has said one word of remorse for JFK. Why volumes of evidence is being withheld. It is why so many witnesses have lost their lives who made contradictory statements to the public about how many shots there were, from where they came, and how it all took place.

    JFK lives today in the hearts and minds of many Americans today for we see what he was up against, and the battle someday soon will become ours.

    JFK lives on, and will live on regardless of what, in the words of Robert Welch, “a numerically small clique of power lusting conspirators who had somehow inflicted themselves on a gullible world” says. See you all in Dallas this November.

    Mr. Fetzer, pardon my taking of space, but, this country is in deep doo-doo and more people need to read each and every article you written on John Fitzgerald Kennedy. You are my hero, buddy, and I will stand and listen to you and others in Dallas on thaht fateful anniversary of a true tragedy, while those cowards wallow in their own hell’s fate. Thank You!

      Chandler, This is a wonderful statement, which I greatly appreciate, but I will be in SANTA BARBARA on the 50th.

    Shame the younger generation don’t listen to the lyrics of songs like that.
