This is the first installment of my book, JFKTV, to be posted at POM. I’ll break the whole thing up into hopefully easily digestible portions, perhaps 10-ish segments over the next few weeks so as not to hog the road. Big ups to Mark for transferring the original PDF to this format for posting purposes.

Read This First
This book can be read as a spoof of JFK research or as nonfiction, your choice. Because none of the radical content of this book is provable beyond a reasonable doubt, there is no reason to insist that what is offered is fact. There are some facts included, but the premise and conclusion herein may seem more like satire than reasoned speculation. I won’t hold a gun to your head and insist you believe anything in this volume.
That said, the fact that a half-century of research has not produced a definite answer to the JFK assassination, nor has it brought anyone to justice, it is long overdue to question whether or not the assassination took place at all. And it’s reasonable to ask that question in a country that still insists it operates under the rule of law.
With that in mind, divest yourself of all assumptions about how the world works and try to keep your critical faculties engaged at the expense of your emotions. Within this fascist construct we now find ourselves, it is obvious that the faith we have had in “official” history has been misplaced. If history is, in fact, written by the victors, and there have been an endless stream of victors, what has passed for history is very likely a series of revisions building upon previous revisions until all facts are completely buried and beyond recall. But this is the method of conquerors from time immemorial: Separate the conquered from their past and they become a nameless herd to corral.
Faith Based Reality
We have been told since that fateful day in November of 1963 that the assassination of President John F Kennedy was a history-changing event. That concept, that the murder of the President affected history, is one of the common assumptions that feed the ongoing deception. It is assumed that the President of the United States has real power, that his decisions affect life on a global scale. Getting over that hurdle will be the first item of business as it is certain that real power is never seen and that the men who appear to be making decisions regarding public welfare are merely front men, or in the case of Ronald Reagan, a professional actor.
The other primary principle to accept for the sake of argument is that the mainstream corporate media, from which we initially derived our information about the Kennedy assassination, never reflects reality. What they do is present a parallel reality that is close in form but in fact is utter fiction; as an historical novel may utilize the histories of real people and places, so too does mainstream media, primarily television, salt their fictions with period detail to give the false reality a plausible facade.
Another way to conceive of this is that television is by its nature unable to reflect reality or it would be seen as utterly redundant; reality itself would suffice and the public would not be mesmerized by a world they need a television set to experience. Therefore, television must appear to reflect reality but skew the emotional impact of this facade to retain the viewer’s interest. To do this the television reports just enough plausible detail and then contextualizes these details within a prearranged narrative that subtly or even subconsciously sells an agenda that promotes this real time history as the only possible history, that which the unseen powers wish the public to believe is inevitable. This is history written by the victorious.
Society of the Spectacle
On Friday, November 22, 1963, President John F Kennedy was shot and killed at 12:30 pm Central Standard Time while riding in a motorcade through downtown Dallas, Texas. How do we know this? There is still extant, as of this writing several grainy home movies, two of which appear to have captured the killing in full. There are numerous photos, professional and amateur, that partially record the events; only two of which appear to capture the President being hit by bullets, only one of which, a Polaroid taken by eyewitness Mary Moorman, shows the President appearing to be hit in the head.
There were eyewitnesses who gave their stories to the news media that day and there were even more witnesses who later testified under oath to the Warren Commission, the special investigative body called for by succeeding President Lyndon Johnson, as to what they saw and heard.
The news media, television especially, broadcast after the fact an uninterrupted three days straight of reports from Dallas as the crime was under investigation. In short order a suspect was apprehended and interrogated and finally charged with not only the murder of the President but a Dallas police officer named JD Tippit, who was shot dead about a half hour after the President.
The narrative concluded with that suspect, Lee Harvey Oswald, himself being shot dead on live TV by a local entrepreneur named Jack Ruby.
Without these media reports, recorded testimonies and the eventual dissemination of the home movies and photographs, the event’s veracity would only have been supported by the few close eyewitnesses and the onsite police and Secret Service escorts and the attending doctors at Parkland hospital where the President was taken after the fact.
Without the visuals to go with the narration, the absence of the President after that mid-morning tragedy would have confirmed the official story to almost everyone’s satisfaction.
Unfortunately, the official narrative and the visuals that purport to back it up have instead instigated innumerable investigations, mostly by private citizens, and two by the government itself. The official narrative that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing the President and officer Tippit was eventually overturned by the government House Select Committee on Assassinations in the late seventies, concluding that there was a likely conspiracy, though it did nothing to follow up on that conclusion.
Why this ongoing dispute? It’s because the visuals cannot support, through known laws of physics, the official line. Even with the eventual conclusion by the government that there was a conspiracy, the particulars of the visuals cannot even align with each other. There is no way to solve this crime with the available forensics evidence. And the reason this crime cannot be solved is that there was no crime committed on November 22, 1963 in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas at 12:30pm Central Standard Time.
The principle of cognitive dissonance holds that mutually contradictory “facts” cause stress and therefore a change in beliefs regarding said facts results in a restoration or balance of mind. If said facts cannot be reevaluated, a restoring consonance results in misperception, though the now apparent absence of contradictions often requires substantiation from like-minded individuals.
In confounding the laws of physics with their official story, the perpetrators of the assassination hoax relied on the faith the public had in the objectivity of the media that broadcast the official story. In effect, to restore that consonance, the media willingly offered that substantiation which allowed the contradictions to be misperceived by the public.
Live black and white video broadcast to local Dallas television affiliates that morning from Love Field captured Air Force One landing under clear skies. Color 16-millimeter film also recorded the landing and emergence of the President and First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy.
Several motion picture cameras, some from the crowd of people waiting to glimpse the President, captured him as he shook hands with his adoring public. This crowd was made up entirely of paid extras. The Secret Service would never have allowed such unprotected contact, and the President would comply, as he would know there was no actual political hay to be made with any real individual he might shake hands with. They may cast a ballot for him but the ballots aren’t actually counted. The game is rigged to a predetermined outcome with each election, and this man of the people maneuver is for the myth makers in the media to forward the lie that there is in The United States of America a working democracy in effect.
Earlier that day, the President had attended a breakfast in Fort Worth, which was also broadcast on local television. Prior to the President’s emergence in the grand ballroom of the Texas Hotel, the commentator described in some detail how a serious breach in security had cost President McKinley his life.
Back at Love Field, nervous commentary by the local television reporter explained what a breach of security it was for the President to defy protocols and spontaneously approach such a large crowd. These two commentaries were subtle preps televised for the public to process at a very subconscious level: that the death of the President was inevitable and largely his own fault.
A Method to the Madness
These commentaries can be described as predictive programming and prepare the viewer at the subconscious level for accepting the seemingly inevitable. This is another clue in determining that this assassination event was scripted well in advance. This also lays the foundation for accepting the contradictions in the evidence by retreating into the prepared consensus to relieve stress. Rather than contest the contradictions of the known facts, the conclusion is there must be facts yet to be discovered and the authorities won’t miss them when engaging in a comprehensive investigation. This in turn will provide the authoritative conclusion drawn from that investigation. Any remaining contradictions will simply be ignored. This is magical thinking and is irresistible after such subconscious conditioning; the official conclusion “feels right” coming from an authoritative source. This is the process by which all of the lies television proffers can be accepted by an otherwise rational mind.
The commentaries are also part of the perpetrators method: They actually state in a variety of ways their intentions. Through a compliant media they salt print, television and film with subtle admissions that they are going to stage an event. Then they stage the event. Then they confess it. In this fashion they lay the ball in the public’s court to respond. When the preconditioned public does not, the perpetrators claim absolution and take no responsibility for the public’s reaction, usually one laced with fear and anxiety and a call for more state security.
This is also the strategy of abusers from time immemorial to escape the stress of guilt: a weak-minded public had it coming. They brought it on themselves; or as apologists for the perpetrators often rationalize: the public gets the government it deserves, implying the government in any way shape or form actually represents the people.
It should be stressed here that the perpetrators of these psyoperas don’t actually break any laws. Their control model would not work if they did. They may expand the law as, for example, they did to keep the public from seeing nonexistent death certificates of the Sandy Hook “victims” by railroading through a legal waiver to keep records of minors from public scrutiny.
The Nazi project run out of Wall Street and the City of London made sure that within the legal framework of Nazi Germany, all of the alleged oppressions of one minority or another fell within the legalities of the Nuremberg Laws. The maintenance of their embassies abroad depended upon this legal framework, as well for their internal “security” measures at home.
The reason this all must pass muster legally is because the morals and ethics these elites saddle the common man with, but which they don’t impose upon themselves, must be consistent to keep us in our place. They do not want competition and if the common crowd which is indoctrinated by church and state from a young age through compulsory schooling abides by these ethics and morals, that common crowd will literally police themselves long before they realize and accept that there are people apart from them who have absolutely no compunction in acting ruthlessly in their own best interests.
Inconsistencies in the enforcement of the law would lead some to chance their own criminal activities as was seen in the wake of Watergate. If enough people did manage to shed these moral chains, the media would ignore it while a legal expansion of state and police authority would allow for a more invasive suppression of any significant dissent*.
In Texas, in 1963, there was no law against firing a weapon at someone if it was loaded with blank cartridges. One must evidence the will to do harm, even in shooting blanks, for the act to be considered a crime. There was no malice of forethought by the “shooters” because they knew there were no bullets.
*Generally speaking, grassroots infiltration of any group is enough to steer potential danger to elitist hegemony over state power away into subdivisions of the ranks and allow for disarmament through internecine strife.
It was not a crime to fake one’s own death, even a sitting President’s. Trouble arises only if the “deceased” tries to gain financially from the fake death through schemes like fraudulent insurance claims. The Kennedy clan was one of the richest in creation. They didn’t need the insurance windfall.
It was not then, nor is it today, a crime to lie on television. One is not under oath and the institution of Standards and Practices that television networks were said to employ as self-policing arms had no constitutional weight. Public outcry could have sparked an investigation by legal bodies such as Congress, at which time sworn oaths under questioning of said bodies would require the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. But the networks were never challenged on this regarding their JFK coverage because in 1963 the public had faith in what they were told was “news” as opposed to clearly labeled “fiction”.
The one person who could have been brought up on charges was Rear Admiral George Burkley, JFK’s personal physician. The circumstances of Burkley signing the death certificate are assumed as he was said to be with Kennedy throughout the motorcade, medical examination and autopsy. But if he was complicit in knowingly signing a phony death certificate, he could have faced legal penalties. He maintained a pro-conspiracy stance the rest of his life due to what he described regarding the wounds. In theory, Burkley could have breached the legal parameters of the hoax but, if the murder were believed to be real, the public would not question the legitimacy of the certificate.
This concern for security reveals a major clue in the complicity of the President to participate in the faking of his own death: his willful desire to actually breach security. Squeezing a few palms at the risk of his own life makes no sense whatsoever unless you believe the President has actual power and needs public support.
These crowd-pleasing gestures also laid the groundwork for absolving the Secret Service and reinforcing the idea that Kennedy was actually killed, and by his own impulsiveness.
As the motorcade assembled and began rolling away from the crowd and onto the highway, Secret Service man Henry Rybka, who was running alongside the Presidential limousine, was called back by Emory Roberts, the ranking agent in the motorcade. On extant video, Rybka expresses his confusion by turning his palms up, gesturing with his arms, seemingly dismayed by this order to back off. He then dutifully climbs into the Secret Service car trailing the President by a car length. All of this is captured by the live video broadcast with the commentator continuing on with remarks about the difficulty the Secret Service faces when the President appears in public.
Five cars back, the press traveled by bus, unable to see the Presidential limousine. This ineffective positioning was deliberate as the reporters on the ground may have been in the dark regarding the plot to mock stage the assassination- (It wasn’t as if they hadn’t been vetted earlier by their corporate overlords even as their reports were carefully pruned by editors to keep the sanctioned reality that passes for news on point.) They had to be documented as too far back from the shooting so that they would not be forced by the public or investigators to tell the truth of what they saw. After all, the only way this ruse would pass muster was if the fiction of an objective press held in the public’s mind. If the reporters didn’t see anything, they would not be compelled by their masters to lie.
Photographs evidencing a total lack of security were taken at an earlier date with a crowd of crisis actors in a controlled area, just like an on location movie set. These photos were then discovered years after the fact – the Presidential party having been pasted on.
Out of site of the crowds as they pulled away from Love field and prior to the motorcade approaching the first crowds lining the streets, the switch was made and actors took over as President, First Lady, Governor Connelly and his wife, Nellie. An identical limousine with the actors on board positioned itself within the motorcade, likely around a corner, briefly out of view of the press bus and trailing vehicles. The genuine President and his party vanished, surrounded by other vehicles guiding the limo down a cordoned off street devoid of witnesses. As the motorcade wound its way through the streets of downtown Dallas, cameras rolled. Along with the professional news cameras, many amateur cameras captured parts of the procession. The evidence of an actual motorcade riding through town was established.
Next time, home movies, all kinds…
