Trump to Allow Release of Classified JFK Assassination Files


[Editor’s note: I am pretty sure there will be nothing of any great importance or consequence exposed by the release of these files. Rather, this is a cynical attempt to paint Trump as being, in some way, ‘anti-establishment’ and opposed to the so-called ‘Deep State’. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth, he is completely and utterly a puppet of precisely the same ‘Deep State’ that played a key role in the murder of JFK and has been running the US ever since.

Trump to Allow Release of Classified JFK Assassination Files

US President Donald Trump announced that he will allow the release of classified documents relating to the assassination of President John F Kennedy, shot dead while visiting Dallas, Texas in 1963.

“Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” Trump tweeted, Washington Examiner reported.

Trump’s announcement counters a report that predicted the president was likely going to block the release of some of the documents by the National Archives, which citing pressure from the CIA over possibly harmful national security information being revealed.

Still, White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters told Politico Magazine that the Trump administratioin was trying “to ensure that the maximum amount of data can be released to the public.

The deadline for the National Archives to release the 3,100 documents, primarily from the CIA and FBI, is Oct. 26. The date was established by the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, which was signed into law by former President George H.W. Bush in an attempt to minimize conspiracy theories about Kennedy’s death.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., led a group of bipartisan lawmakers urging Trump earlier this month to allow full access to the classified documents.

“Transparency in government is critical not only to ensuring accountability; it’s also essential to understanding our nation’s history,” Grassley said in a statement, adding that “The assassination of President Kennedy occurred at a pivotal time for our nation, and nearly 54 years later, we are still learning the details of how our government responded and what it may have known beforehand. Americans deserve a full picture of what happened that fateful day in November 1963. Shining a light on never-before-seen government records is essential to filling in these blank spaces in our history.”

  1. The date of release is Oct 26. The following timeframe is poised to be a war of corporate vs individual, with several consumer and environmental battle lines being drawn. There is also likely a third level to this coordinated flood of obfuscated movements. I refer to the common line in speeches Trump gave to evangelical ministers during the campaign. Money, Land, and Mind, are in the crosshairs. Be ready also for those who turn, as these types of aggressive pushes have been fruitful if, accepting,.. nonjudgmental, arms are ready to receive side changers. An advantage of the just position that should not be wasted.

  2. Government has had over fifty years to confabulate, obfuscate, and massage the truth into whatever form they want. This is a meaningless release of toilet paper.

  3. Khalid – it wouldn`t surprise me a bit if that happened! With the reported fairytales we get, it`s obvious that the ‘news’ we get is reported by parrots who just repeat what their handlers tell them. I still say there has got to be a contest that ‘journalists’ enter to see which one can look the most ludicrous!

  4. More lies from Trump. He is not going to read all this garbage but will rely on his CIA thugs to do that. Do not expect anything significant to be released. They have had plenty of time to alter and redact many embarrassing facts and details. Our government loves secrecy and cover up of its many corrupt activities to fool the fools in the population.

  5. Amercians wrote 40000 books over 911 did but not shot a singel jew for the crime
    the same amount is now to be expected over JFK assasination by Khazar jews and that after many decads . It is a bit decadent !

  6. A key moment to witness, that media uses both negative and positive headlines to keep the distraction of Trumpism in the front while the cabinet forages through our sock drawers. Bash him today, praise him tomorrow, but keep him in front, all the while, nefarious projects speed through the red lights with no one at the wheel.
    The next two weeks need watchful eyes as the clumsy pick pockets advance. This is the cover.

  7. That’s great provided they haven’t been altered. Perhaps many will question
    other events as well. Of course VT will be the leader in dissemination.
