DR Congo President Joseph Kabila eyes end to war

Supporters of President Kabila President Kabila received a warm welcome in Rutshuru
Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila has told residents of a town held by rebels for more than a year that he wants an end to 20 years of conflict in the region.
He has spent the past week driving from Kisangani in a 70-car convoy, which got bogged down in the region's bad roads.
He has ended his 930km- (575 mile) journey in Rutshuru, which was held by the M23 rebels for more than a year.
During his trip, he warned the region's other militias to disarm.

He told a crowd of thousands of people that he wanted an end to conflict in the area, reports the AFP news agency.
"The war which has just finished, should be the last war," he said.
This is Mr Kabila's first visit to the troubled North Kivu province since the 2011 election campaign.

President Kabila could have flown to the east, but he had a statement to make. Despite the terrible roads and the dangerous militias active in the area, he wanted to show that no part of the Congolese territory is inaccessible to him.
However, his car got stuck in the mud several times and the presidential guards had to get out and push.
On the way to Rutshuru, he insisted the government is determined to go after all the other armed groups in eastern DR Congo.
The international community wants DR Congo and its neighbours to come up with a lasting solution to the crisis in the Great Lakes.
The government also has crucial issues to deal with before the M23 can really be consigned to the past. The Ugandan government says there are still more than 1,000 ex-rebels in Uganda. Their future is unclear. Uganda has said it will not hand them over to DR Congo unless an agreement is signed.
Military experts say some other rebel groups will not be easy to defeat. They operate very differently from the M23. They are spread out across the region, often hidden among the local population, making it difficult to clearly target them.
The mineral-rich area has been wracked by conflict for the past two decades but the defeat of the M23 has raised some hopes of a more stable future.
'Dry our tears'
"I wish you a long-lasting peace," the president said, warning against revenge attacks and tribalism.
The BBC's Maud Jullien in Rutshuru says the day was declared a public holiday in the town and some people were prevented from farming their fields and encouraged to go to see the president.
"We are very happy, because we have suffered here under the M23 administration for over a year, and now the president has come to dry our tears," said a young man in the stadium as he waited for the president to arrive.
But many local residents are afraid that the peace will not last, our correspondent says.
"The root causes of the problem are regional, and they haven't been resolved. There needs to be a regional agreement," said one man, Bienfait.
"The M23 is gone now but there is nothing to indicate that there won't be an M24 tomorrow or an M25 after that."
Both Rwanda and Uganda have denied repeated accusations that they supported the M23.
The international community has been calling on regional leaders to come up with a lasting solution to the crisis in the Great Lakes, as well as urging the M23 and the Congolese government to return to peace talks in Uganda and sign a deal.
"We know very well that a military victory alone is not good enough, there must be a political concept behind it," said the head of UN mission in Congo, Martin Kobler.
According to the authorities in Kampala, there are still more than 1,000 ex-rebels in Uganda, including its leaders.
Uganda has said it will not hand them over to DR Congo unless an agreement is signed.
Many other armed groups remain active in eastern DR Congo.
The country is two-thirds the size of Western Europe but after decades of conflict and mismanagement, has hardly any tarred roads outside the capital, Kinshasa.
The president flew the 1,200km to Kisangani before carrying on by road.
Our correspondent says he wanted to make a statement - that no part of the Congolese territory is inaccessible to him.
Mr Kabila has been driving himself but his car got stuck in the mud several times and the presidential guards had to get out and push the vehicle.
The president was accompanied by the minister of infrastructure, who has said emergency construction works have begun, before full renovation works by two Chinese companies begin.
The M23 rebels called an end to their insurgency earlier this month, hours after the DR Congo government claimed victory after recapturing all rebel-held areas.
A robust new UN intervention brigade used helicopters to support the Congolese army against the rebel forces.

This Week on John F. Kennedy assassination

Good People,
The fundamental thing I take away from JF Kennedy assassination is that, Selfishness, Racial Discrimination, Hate, Untruth, Covering Evil and Greed are things that are not of LOVE and they separate us from TRUTH which is a bad cancer that is dividing and destroy us as a people and subsequently it is spreading out like bush fire to the world and shall put the world to a delicate situation which is bound to consume all of us and the world shall be no more.
JF Kennedy spoke the Truth and stood for Civil Rights Justice and gave HOPE with a sense of possibility that people MUST remain firm for justice and that Humiliation, Injustices and oppression does not bring forth Unity, Peace or Happiness that are shared for common good………and that, if people remain firm to push for Justice and Fairness to all, we all shall enjoy the fruits of freedom and together, we shall achieve shared goodness in harmony that bond all of us together as one irrespective of Color or Race.JF Kennedy’s Legacy surpassed Racial Discrimination and therefore, he remained in the mind of many as a force to reckon in the memory lane and as someone who spoke the Truth to the world in the face of adversaries and he became a Testament for being a Great Man standing for Civil Rights......that even after he was gunned down, the Symbol of Civil Rights he created could not be shaken, it remained alive and an icon of Justice and Truth that had to be delivered and be made to a BILL in just after a month after he was heartlessly killed.
Years later, since JF Kennedy assassination 50 years ago, nothing much have changed.We are still struggling with Civil Rights injustices.The pain of Civil Rights Injustices are too much and are completely unbearable.More killings with more Assassinations are making it even worse.The world is sick and tired from being sick and tired……..that No Amount of Power, intimidation and oppression shall make the Selfish Greedy with those who Hate and engage in Racial segregation acceptable in th world.
The world is hurting and bleeding.For goodness sake, something must be done, because people are extremely angry to the maximum point.Before we are all destroyed, let us engage in doing RIGHT.Let us all preach Unity of Purpose in LOVE.It is because, without Love, we are all empty and we shall surely perish and destroy the world.
May God Bless us all and see us through to happiness that we all want..........

JFK Conspiracy And Cover Up: The Magic Bullet Theory Proven False

Published on Apr 2, 2013
A leading authority on the death of JFK explains why the "magic bullet" theory, which is the foundation for THE WARREN REPORT (1964), THE HSCA FINAL REPORT (1979), and Gerald Posner's CASE CLOSED (1993), has to be rejected. Using documents that have been recently declassified by the Assassination Records Review Board as well as more familiar evidence, Fetzer demonstrates that the "magic bullet" theory is not only false but provably false and, in fact, not even anatomically possible. As a consequence, it is necessary to account for the wound to JFK's throat and one or more wounds of Texas Governor John Connally on the basis of other shots and other shooters. Once the authentic evidence has been separated from the inauthentic, the outline of an elaborate conspiracy and cover-up becomes clear.

JFK's Secret Service Agents Break Their Silence: Interview - John F. Kennedy Assassination (2010)

Published on Oct 19, 2013
Sgt. Davis, of the Dallas Police Department, believed he had prepared stringent security precautions, in an attempt to prevent demonstrations like those marking the Adlai Stevenson visit from happening again. The previous month, Stevenson, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, was assaulted by an anti-UN demonstrator. But Winston Lawson of the Secret Service, who was in charge of the planning, told the Dallas Police not to assign its usual squad of experienced homicide detectives to follow immediately behind the President's car. This police protection was routine for both visiting presidents and for motorcades of other visiting dignitaries. Police Chief Jesse Curry later testified that had his men been in place, they might have been able to stop the assassin before he fired a second shot, because they carried submachine guns and rifles.[104]

An investigation by the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) in 1979 concluded that "the Secret Service was deficient in the performance of its duties."[105] The HSCA stated: That President Kennedy had not received adequate protection in Dallas. That the Secret Service possessed information that was not properly analyzed, investigated, or used by the Secret Service in connection with the President's trip to Dallas. That the Secret Service agents in the motorcade were inadequately prepared to protect the President from a sniper.[106]

The HSCA specifically noted: No actions were taken by the agent in the right front seat of the Presidential limousine [ Roy Kellerman ] to cover the President with his body, although it would have been consistent with Secret Service procedure for him to have done so. The primary function of the agent was to remain at all times in close proximity to the President in the event of such emergencies.

Clinton J. Hill (born 1932) is a former United States Secret Service agent who was in the presidential motorcade during the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. After Kennedy was fatally shot, Hill ran from the car immediately behind the presidential limousine and leapt onto the back of it, holding on while the car raced to Parkland Memorial Hospital. This action was documented in the famous Zapruder film. Hill is the last surviving passenger of the presidential limousine which arrived at Parkland Hospital.

Hill was born and raised in North Dakota.[1] His birth parents homesteaded near Roseglen and he was born in Larimore, North Dakota, then placed in an orphanage in Fargo where he was adopted by Chris and Jennie Hill at three months of age.[1] Hill's new family took him to Washburn where he eventually graduated from Washburn High School.[1] He also attended Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota,[1] where he played football, studied history, and was a 1954 graduate. After college, Hill was assigned to the Denver office of Secret Service in 1958 and served on the detail for President Dwight D. Eisenhower.[2] After John F. Kennedy was elected President of the United States, Hill was assigned to protect the First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy.

President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas, during a motorcade through the city, en route to a luncheon at the Dallas Trade Mart. The President and Mrs. Kennedy were riding in an open limousine containing three rows of seats. The Kennedys were in the rear seat of the car, and the Governor of Texas, John Connally, and his wife, Nellie Connally, were in the middle row. Secret Service agent William Greer was driving and the president's bodyguard. Roy Kellerman, was also in the front seat.

Hill was riding in the car immediately behind the presidential limousine. As soon as the shooting began, Hill jumped out and began running to overtake the moving car in front of him. He climbed from the rear bumper, crawling over the trunk to the back seat where the President and First Lady were located.

Hill grabbed a small handrail on the left rear of the trunk, normally used by bodyguards to stabilize themselves while standing on small platforms on the rear bumper. According to the Warren Commission's findings, there were no bodyguards stationed on the bumper that day because ...the President had frequently stated that he did not want agents to ride on these steps during a motorcade except when necessary. He had repeated this wish only a few days before, during his visit to Tampa, Florida. .[3]

The notion that the President's instructions in Tampa jeopardized his security in Dallas has since been denied by Hill and other agents. Regardless of Kennedy's statement, photos taken of the motorcade along earlier segments of the route show Hill riding on the step at the back of the car.

TOKYO (AP) — The daughter of President John F. Kennedy said that his spirit lives on even though his life was cut short.

Caroline Kennedy, who is the new U.S. ambassador to Japan, said in an interview published in Japan's Yomiuri newspaper Sunday that people often tell her they were inspired by her father. That's a reminder that we all have a duty to work together for a better world, she was quoted as saying.

The remarks were her first public comments about Friday's 50th anniversary of her father's assassination. She noted his legacies include the Peace Corps and the U.S. Agency for International Development, which is providing humanitarian aid to the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan.

She also said her father inspired his generation of Americans to serve their country and work for justice and peace, adding that many young people today feel politics bears no relationship to themselves.

Kennedy, who arrived in Tokyo nine days ago, also talked to Japan's largest newspaper about ongoing challenges in U.S.-Japan relations. She hopes that "substantive progress is made in the near future" in moving forward with a long-delayed plan to relocate a U.S. Marine Corps base from one part of Okinawa to another.

Her father, whose torpedo boat was sunk by a Japanese destroyer in World War II, wanted to strengthen America's relations with its former enemy, she told the Yomiuri. Others have realized this plan in the years since his death, she said, and she wants to be part of the next chapter.

On nuclear weapons, an important subject for Japan, she said her father considered the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty to be his biggest success, and that she is proud to work for a president whose aim is to eliminate this frightful weapon from the world.

John F. Kennedy assassination: three key mysteries

John F. Kennedy assassination: three key mysteries

There is still no accepted story about the John F. Kennedy assassination. After half a century of investigation and speculation, it's the missing documents, the holes in what we know, that stand out, leaving only factions of belief.

The Christian Science Monitor
By Peter Grier November 22, 2013 12:14 PM
The assassination of President John F. Kennedy 50 years ago Friday is cloaked in mysteries. That’s why so many conspiracy theories believed by so many people have flourished down the years. Information is incomplete, motives unexplained, evidence lacking. We write our own narratives to fill in these blanks.
Perhaps the central mystery is how a man who seemed to be a loser could perpetrate such a terrible deed. Lee Harvey Oswald was adrift, largely alone, unfocused, according to the official Warren Commission report. Yet in seconds, he changed the course of history. History is full of preposterous truths – yet no matter. The single gunman theory is one many Americans find hard to accept.
Here are three other central mysteries. Narrow at the beginning, they open to reveal larger questions at the end. Many investigators claim to have solved these and other JFK assassination questions. But given the holes in what we know, there is no accepted story about that November day in Dallas. There are only factions of belief.
This question is at the heart of the fundamental issue of whether Lee Harvey Oswald could have acted alone.
The Warren Commission concluded that Oswald’s first shot from the Texas School Book Depository wounded Kennedy, in the back of the presidential limo, and Texas Gov. John Connally, who was sitting in front of JFK in a jump seat. This 6.5mm copper-jacketed bullet hit JFK in the back, traveled through his body, and then struck Governor Connally’s chest and wrist, said the commission. It was found on a gurney at Parkland Memorial Hospital upon which Connally had lain.
Could this really have happened? The bullet would have had to swerve in midair to cause the damage ascribed to it by the Warren report. A second shooter from a different angle had to be involved, according to the commission's critics.
In addition, Kennedy and Connally were hit at the same instant, according to the photographic evidence of the famous footage shot by private citizen Abraham Zapruder. Oswald couldn’t have fired fast enough to have hit them with two shots, much less the fatal shot that hit Kennedy in the head seconds later. If a single “magic” bullet didn’t wound the two men in the limo, that’s more evidence that Oswald had help, conspiracy theorists say.
But bullets don’t behave predictably when they reach their targets. JFK and Connally were sitting at different heights, and leaning at different angles. Many have argued that the evidence is consistent with the single bullet theory and there was no “magic” involved at all.
This question bears upon the motives of the main players in the drama, and whether an event that was a hinge of history occurred because of a momentary whim.
Dallas strip club owner Jack Ruby loved dogs. Specifically, he loved his dogs, and his favorite was a dachshund named Sheba. Sheba went with him everywhere. On the morning of Nov. 24, 1963, Sheba rode with Ruby when he drove into Dallas on errands.
His main purpose was to wire money to a hard-pressed stripper in his employ, Ruby told the Warren Commission. Leaving Sheba in the car, he parked across from the Western Union office, walked over, and sent the cash. Then he wandered over to nearby Dallas Police headquarters. He was a frequent visitor there, handing out cards to give patrolmen free entrance to his clubs. He testified that at the time he was highly emotional about Kennedy’s death, and that he cried on the drive in when seeing wreaths by the side of the road.
Ruby walked down the ramp to the police garage. It was about 11:20 in the morning, local time. No one bothered him. He saw the crowd gathered to watch Lee Harvey Oswald’s transfer to a nearby county jail. In his own words, on a whim he shot and killed Oswald, forever precluding the chance of the world hearing Oswald’s testimony.
“I had a gun in my right hip pocket, and impulsively, if that is the correct word here, I saw him, and that is all that I can say. And I didn’t care what happened to me,” Ruby told the Warren Commission.
Is the dog in the car a crucial bit of evidence that backs up this assertion? Ruby would never have left Sheba unattended, in this view. He’d have left her at home if he had preplanned his actions. He’d have made some arrangements for her care.
It was some time before police found the car, and the dog, and made arrangements for her to go to animal protection. That’s something Ruby wouldn’t have wanted. But if Ruby acted on a whim, doesn’t that mean he acted alone? No mob backers, no Cuban money.
And if Ruby, why not Oswald? Perhaps Oswald was in despair over his inability to win back his estranged wife. He had long had a rifle in the garage, and the president was passing beneath his work window. On the morning of Nov. 22, perhaps something snapped.
This question deals with the destruction of evidence and the gaps in the record that still exist.
In 1992 Congress established a review board to go through still-classified records related to Kennedy’s assassination. The purpose was to see what else could be released to public view. Thousands of new records were released.
But the records did not set everything to rest. In some instances they raised new questions, according to T. Jeremy Gunn, the board’s general counsel.
For instance, Gunn deposed Dr. James Joseph Hughes, one of the lead doctors who performed an autopsy on Kennedy’s body at Bethesda Naval Hospital. Dr. Hughes said he had burned his original handwritten autopsy notes in his fireplace at home. The notes had blood stains on them, said Hughes, and he did not want them to become a terrible object of awe, as Lincoln’s blood-stained chair from Ford’s Theater is today.
Hughes said he made a copy that contained all the same information. Other doctors' autopsy notes weren’t burned. But the autopsy has long been questioned – its methods, its thoroughness, its conclusions. The fact that records were destroyed only feeds those inquiries.
And what about other records? Many have been released, but more remain secret. Reputable estimates put the number of still-secret CIA records dealing with JFK’s murder at about 1,170, according to University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato, author of “The Kennedy Half Century.”
“Even a half-century later, we don’t have the complete story of the assassination,” wrote Mr. Sabato in a recent opinion piece for the Washington Post.

The Assassination of President Kennedy—Solved at Last!!

The Assassination of President Kennedy—Solved at Last!!

In 1960, Richard Nixon was supposed to be elected the 35th President of the United States. Nixon was Vice President under President Eisenhower for 8 years and served his long apprenticeship well. The country prospered greatly during the Eisenhower administration and Nixon would have continued the policies of his predecessor.

President Eisenhower came to the Presidency at a very dangerous time in history. The Cold War with the Soviet Union was at its height, and President Eisenhower, as commander in chief, had the final say about the use of nuclear weapons.

There was absolutely no reason why Richard Nixon was not elected President in 1960. He had 8 years of valuable foreign policy experience, and also served in the military during World War II. Despite his failing health, President Eisenhower campaigned for Nixon:

On the day after the election, the President was bitterly disappointed at Nixon's defeat and so upset that his blood pressure was elevated and his pulse irregular. Snyder later reported that the muscular and joint pains Eisenhower experienced around this time were caused by "the shock to the President's emotional system as a result of the election." A few weeks later, Eisenhower's abdomen was badly distended once again, and he was in great discomfort. (Gilbert, The Mortal Presidency, p. 116).

Had Nixon been elected, there would have been no Vietnam War, no Berlin Wall, no MOON LANDING LUNACY, no Cuban Missile Crisis, no 25th (Rockefeller) Amendment, and hopefully no Kennedy "royal" family.

President Kennedy's first marriage!!

In 1933, Joe Kennedy bought a mansion in Palm Beach, Florida—a playground of the rich and famous. Across the street lived the George H. Malcolm family. They had a beautiful and vivacious, but twice divorced daughter named Durie. Jack Kennedy married Durie on January 24, 1947.

Kennedy Senior was FURIOUS when he heard about the marriage. At that time, a divorced man—no matter how rich—had absolutely no chance of making it to the White House. Nelson Rockefeller—whose family owned the United States—knew that all too well.
Joe Kennedy had all traces of the marriage removed, and Durie was offered a substantial sum to buy her silence....As a further COVER-UP, she was quickly married in New Jersey to a Thomas Shelvin in July of that same year.
Ambassador Kennedy had a stroke while playing "golf" with his chauffeur!!

Ambassador Kennedy—the father of President Kennedy—was worth at least 100 million dollars by 1940. The ambassador made his millions by manipulating the stock market, booze, and Hollywood movies.
He was determined to get one of his sons into the White House no matter what the cost . . . or the health problems.
When his oldest son, Joe Jr., died on a suicide mission over England, the White House quest devolved upon his next oldest son, Jack.

After the stroke, his wife Rose IGNORED him for about 4 hours, and then eventually called the doctor....Here is a report from Kennedy's chauffeur Frank Saunders:
It was six-days till Christmas. When Mrs. Kennedy returned to the house around noon after mass and errands, she was told Mr. Kennedy was in bed.
This time Ann, was really worried. She explained to her aunt what had happened on the golf course, trying hard to keep calm. Mr. Kennedy had gone faint while they were playing the back nine and had had to rest on a bench, Ann said. After that Uncle Joe had difficulty balancing himself. He walked like a drunk. She'd gotten him into the golf cart, then her car, and she had driven him right home. He seemed confused. (Saunders, Torn Lace Curtain, p. 108).

Rose Kennedy put her husband to bed and then she went out to play golf.... It wasn't until late afternoon that the doctor was called. Here is another report from Frank Saunders:
Later that morning I snuck into Mr. Kennedy's bedroom.
"How you feeling, Chief? You feel all right?" I asked. He made a noise in his throat indicating that he did. But he didn't sound all right. He didn't look all right either. "He doesn't look too good to me," I told Ann. She gave me a quick sympathetic look and shook her head. Neither his wife nor his niece wanted to call the doctor, I guessed.
Mrs. Kennedy looked in on her husband again after her lunch.

Mrs. Kennedy still planned to play golf that afternoon.
Finally they called for a doctor. The doctor came at once and they wasted no time. They put the president's father on a stretcher and wheeled him to an ambulance. Ann got in with him. As the ambulance pulled out into the boulevard its lights began flashing.

The President's father was completely paralyzed on the right side and unable to walk or talk. Because his daughter Rosemary was a little slow in learning, father Joe had surgeons perform a prefrontal lobotomy on her:
The irony of the stroke was in Joe's appearance. Half a century earlier he had allowed surgeons to give his daughter Rosemary a prefrontal lobotomy that had gone poorly. Her mind had been nearly destroyed, but more obvious were changes in her face and body. Joe, like his daughter, now had partial facial paralysis, a tendency to drool, a partially crippled body, and the inability to make intelligible statements. The obvious external damage Joe Kennedy had sustained was exactly the same as that of the child he had hidden away for five decades. (Schwarz, Joseph P. Kennedy, p. 425).

After his stroke, Ambassador Kennedy suffered the same mental and physical maladies as his daughter, and he went to meet his Maker on November 18, 1969.

President Kennedy had serious medical problems for most of his life!!

After the death of his oldest son, Joe Jr., Ambassador Kennedy relentlessly pushed his second son Jack toward the Presidency . . . even though he had life threatening medical problems.
In the spring of 1941, John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy tried to enlist in the army but was rejected because of his bad back. His father pulled some strings and he was finally accepted into the navy. In 1943, his ship was rammed by a Japanese destroyer, and John emerged as a WAR HERO.
When his older brother Joe heard of his new status as a WAR HERO, he had to go one better. Joe volunteered for a suicide mission and was killed in a plane crash. Despite his ill health, Jack had to pick up the mantle of his dead brother.
Jack Kennedy was so sick in London that he was actually given the Last Rites in 1947:
While on a visit to London in the fall of 1947, Congressman Kennedy became so seriously ill with weakness, nausea, vomiting, and low blood pressure that he was given the last rites of the Roman Catholic Church. The physician who examined him diagnosed his condition as Addison's disease and told one of Kennedy's friends that "he hasn't got a year to live." Arthur Krock, however, remembered being told by Joseph Kennedy, even before his son first ran for Congress in 1946, that Jack had Addison's disease and was probably dying. Krock related that Joseph Kennedy "wept sitting in the chair opposite me in the office." If Krock's memory was accurate, it would appear that John Kennedy contracted Addison's disease somewhat earlier than previously thought. Indeed, this might well explain Kennedy's illness during his first campaign for the House of Representatives, when he collapsed during the final campaign event, a parade in Charlestown, sweating heavily and his skin discolored. (Gilbert, The Mortal Presidency, p. 154).

Kennedy's serious medical problems were known to many before his election:
As he battled Lyndon B. Johnson for the Democratic presidential nomination, some of Johnson's allies made reference to Kennedy's Addison's disease and used it as an argument against his nomination. India Edwards, a southern Democratic party leader, told a group of reporters that "Kennedy was so sick from Addison's disease that he looked like a spavined hunchback."' She also asserted that doctors had told her that were it not for cortisone, Kennedy would be dead. Another prominent Johnson ally, campaign manager John Connolly, charged that, if nominated and elected, Kennedy "couldn't serve out the term" since "he was going to die" (Gilbert, The Mortal Presidency, p. 157).

Kennedy's ill health was covered up, and thanks to his father's millions, he became the 35th President of the United States on January 20, 1961.

Here are the 5 main reasons for the assassination of President Kennedy:

Make a martyr of Kennedy to break down the opposition to the Latin Church in the United States.
Make a martyr of Kennedy to obscure the assassination of President Lincoln.
Amend the Constitution to allow Nelson Rockefeller to become President by appointment only!!
President Kennedy had plans to fire J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI—Federal Bureau of Inquisition.
President Kennedy had plans to drop Lyndon Johnson as his Vice President in 1964.

Immediately after the assassination, many amazing "coincidences" were noted between the assassination of Kennedy and Lincoln.

Dr. Janet Travell kept President Kennedy alive!!

Kennedy first visited Dr. Travell at her office in New York City on May 26, 1955:

At our first meeting, the thin young Senator on crutches could barely navigate the few steps down from the sidewalk into my ground floor office. Left sided pain in his back and leg made it almost impossible for him to bear weigh on that foot, and a stiff right knee since a football injury in his youth made it difficult for him to step up or down with his weight on the right leg, because that required bending the right knee. He had come with Dr. Shorr by taxi, and the taxi driver helped him down the steps. (Travell, Office Hours: Day and Night, pp. 5-6).

It was in Dr. Travell's office that Kennedy first noticed the famous rocking chair:

The Senator sat in an old-style, North Carolina porch rocker with woven cane seat and back. The office was quiet and unhurried. He asked a few questions, always to the point. How long would the improvement in the motion of his knee last? He was understandably skeptical. He was not prepared to accept readily one more doctor and another kind of treatment. Seven months earlier he had undergone a lumbar spine fusion, after which a local infection had developed, and about four months later the metal fusion plate had been removed in a second operation. His crutches had been a familiar sight in the Senate during the summer of a year ago, and now he was still obliged to use them. Could he face another hospital? (Travell, Office Hours: Day and Night, p. 6).

When he entered the White House, President Kennedy insisted that Dr. Travell should be his White House Physician and senior to the Pentagon doctor, Admiral George Burkley.

Just before the assassination, rumors began to circulate that she had resigned from her position because her treatments were actually hurting the President.

Red roses from Texas!!

Mrs. Kennedy later said this about the bouquet of RED roses:
Three times that day in Texas we were greeted with bouquets of the yellow roses of Texas. Only in Dallas they gave me red roses. I remember thinking: How funny—red roses for me," the First Lady was to say when at last she was able to look back on things quietly (Gun, Red Roses from Texas, p. 100).

Vice President Johnson took the oath of office on a Roman missal!!

A Roman Catholic missal is a book containing all the prayers and responses necessary for celebrating the mass throughout the year. That is the book that Johnson used . . . instead of the Bible!!

Mission accomplished....Standing next to a "mourning" Jackie, LBJ gets a wink and a smile from Congressman Albert Thomas. His wife, Lady Bird, is smiling by his side.

Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as President by Judge Sarah T. Hughes just hours after the assassination. Judge Hughes brought a small Bible for the swearing in ceremony, but it was substituted for a Roman Missal (Mass book) that was found on the plane. . . .This was a completely illegal act as the President of the Unites States must take the oath of office with his hand on the Bible before he is the lawful President.... President Lincoln and President Truman kissed the Bible when they were sworn in.
Here is a report by free lance journalist and writer Nerin E. Gun:
We must wait for Mrs Kennedy," said Lyndon Johnson. "She is bringing her husband's coffin."
Someone commented that Mrs Kennedy's presence at the ceremony would in a way confirm the continuity of the régime; she would, so to speak, "legitimise" the new president.
At 2:18 p.m. Jacqueline Kennedy arrived. Three Secret Service men, and some soldiers, carried the coffin to the back of the plane—but still in the passenger cabin. Jacqueline sat down beside it.
When Johnson took the Oath, Army Captain Cecil Stoughton, official photographer at the White House, recorded the scene on a special 50 mm camera. He took nine photos. Three journalists boarded the plane, as representing the world press.
Jacqueline was on Johnson's left, as the latter repeated the Constitutional formula after Judge Hughes. The woman judge was trembling; she did not use the Bible she had brought with her, but a small Catholic Missal, found in the plane near Kennedy's bed.
Johnson gently kissed Jacqueline on the cheek, then his wife. Then he said firmly: "Now let's take the plane back to Washington. (Gun, Red Roses from Texas, p. 183).

Johnson said that he never felt better on the day of Kennedy's assassination:

On Air Force One, Johnson had taken the oath of office from judge Sarah T. Hughes. The photos clearly show a solemn new president beside the still shocked widow undertaking his new job with deep regret, all as he should. Then, as he completed the oath and officially assumed the mantle of president, he could not contain himself. The last photo in the series shows him with his face turned, the back left side of his face deeply creased with a big smile, apparently winking at longtime colleague Congressman Albert Thomas, who was there as a witness. The congressman winked back, and Lady Bird smiled. As he would later candidly say, on that day "I never felt better." (McClellan, Blood, Money and Power, p. 212).

Dr. Travell was completely excluded from the President's autopsy!!

After the President was assassinated, he was immediately flown to Bethesda Naval Hospital where the Pentagon took complete charge of the autopsy. Dr. Travell was completely ignored.

Dr. Travell was kept in the background after the assassination:

In the West Wing, the Presidential office was being dismantled. During the night, I walked from the Mansion past the shadowy Rose Garden, and I saw the familiar mementos being trundled away. By Saturday morning, the Oval Room was bare of furniture, books, and the paintings of ships. Only the blood-red new rug remained that Jacqueline Kennedy had planned for her husband's return. He never used it. It was a piece in the mosaic of life and death. (Travell, Office Hours: Day and Night, p. 428).

Dead men tell no tales!!

The entire assassination was a set-up with a lone assassin named Lee Harvey Oswald arrested as the perpetrator. Just like Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth, he was conveniently liquidated before he could talk.

Lee Harvey Oswald (1938-1963) was the lone suspect in the shooting of President Kennedy.
The assassination of Kennedy was immediately compared to the assassination of President Lincoln.
Lincoln was shot in the head, and then his assassin, John Wilkes Booth, was killed soon afterward.

Oswald was shot by Jack Ruby as he was being transferred under police custody from the police station to jail. Oswald was shot and killed by Jack Ruby on live television.

The funeral of President Kennedy

Mrs. Kennedy took charge of the funeral arrangements. She had a copy of a book on the funeral of President Lincoln brought to her and she ordered it to be followed exactly— even to the design of the catafalque in the White House. . . . Mrs. Lincoln almost died from grief on the death of her husband!!

After the assassination, Kennedy was compared to Lincoln, and many people noticed the amazing coincidences in the lives . . . and violent deaths . . . of the two Presidents.

The myth of Camelot

During the Kennedy administration, the media began to refer to the White House as CAMELOT.

Here is the dictionary definition of Camelot:

1. the legendary site of King Arthur's palace and court, possibly near Exeter, England.
2. any idyllic place or period, esp. one of great happiness.
3. the glamorous ambience of Washington, D.C., during the administration of President John F. Kennedy, 1961–63.

Kennedy was depicted as a devoted family man and his wife as a paradigm of virtue. Nothing could be further from the truth. "Camelot" was more like the infamous Court of the Borgias.

It is doubtful if Kennedy was even LEGALLY married to Jackie:

Durie Malcolm (first wife of Jack Kennedy).
Durie Malcolm (first wife of Jack Kennedy).
Kennedy married Durie Malcolm—a twice divorced Palm Beach socialite in 1947.
Joe Kennedy was FURIOUS. He planned on running his son for the Presidency and a divorcée was not Presidential timber.
He had the marriage annulled, but a formal civil divorce was never obtained.
Jackie Kennedy (second wife of the President).
Jackie Kennedy (second wife of the President).

Jack was being groomed to take the place of his dead brother Joe in the quest for the White House. The ambassador had a fit when he found out about the wedding. Father Joe had all the money and Jack did not have the COURAGE to defy his father:

Even in early 1947, Spalding said, it was clear that Jack was being groomed and financed for the White House by his father. Joe Kennedy had "a hemorrhage" when he learned about the marriage, Spalding told me. Malcolm, besides being twice divorced, was Episcopalian. "He demanded that it be taken care of," Spalding recalled. "They [the family] were afraid the whole thing was going to come out.
"I went out there and removed the [marriage] papers," Spalding told me, presumably from the Palm Beach County courthouse. "It was Jack who asked me if I'd go get the papers." Spalding said he "got" the marriage documents with the help of a lawyer in Palm Beach.
Florida law requires no blood test before a couple can apply for a marriage license. Prior to 1983, however, couples making application had to wait three days for a license to be issued. If Jack Kennedy and Durie Malcolm followed the law, their wedding was planned at least three days in advance and thus was more than a spur-of-the-moment "prank," as Charles Spalding claimed (Hersh, The Dark Side of Camelot, pp. 327-328).

Traphes Bryant was an electrician at the White House and later the official kennel keeper. He witnessed an endless procession of women secretely visiting the White House . . . but not to discuss politics with the President.

During his Presidency, Kennedy had an endless procession of women in the White House. Many times they went skinny dipping with Kennedy in the White House pool. It was said that his overwhelming sex drive was due to the cortisone shots. Here is a report by the White House kennel keeper:

President Kennedy certainly seemed to enjoy his women. I don't know for sure about Marilyn Monroe, but I did hear backstairs talk, after he was dead, that during his visits to California he had enjoyed a few discreet meetings with her at a private home.
I never saw her around the White House and I never heard talk of her being either an official or "O.R."-off the record-guest there in his administration, even though she once sang "Happy birthday, Mr. President, happy birthday to you" to him in New York's Madison Square Garden.
But this much I can tell you: he did enjoy having beautiful women around him at the White House and he did entertain them when Jackie was away. There was a conspiracy of silence to protect his secrets from Jacqueline and to keep her from finding out. The newspapers would tell how First Lady Jacqueline was off on another trip, but what they didn't report was how anxious the President sometimes was to see her go. And what consternation there sometimes was when she returned unexpectedly.
I remember one time it was a beautiful tall blond girl skinny dipping in the pool with him. JFK liked to swim nude and so did some of the girls who popped in to visit him. But this particular girl must have been just waiting for the First Lady to be on her way. She came in the South West Gate and straight to the South Portico, and a trusted aide met her there. He walked her through the Diplomatic Room and along the Colonnade, as if he were taking her to the President's office, but instead he took her to the gymnasium, where she shed her clothes and went to the pool.
Jack Kennedy was already there, lounging naked beside the pool and sipping a daiquiri. Sometimes one or two from a group of trusted staff aides and friends would join Kennedy in the pool, and often there would be just one other male and female to make up a foursome. This time there were several girls and several male friends. (Bryant, Dog Days at the White House, p. 22).

Marilyn Monroe and Judith Campbell Exner were just 2 of the women who had adulterous affairs with Kennedy.

All this womanizing seemed to mask a much more SINISTER side to Jack Kennedy. The daily cortisone shots alone cannot explain his adulterous relations with so many women.

President Kennedy and Lem Billings

Kennedy had a boyfriend named Kirk LeMoyne Billings—known to everybody as Lem. Their friendship went back to their days as classmates at Choate School for Boys in Wallingford, Connecticut. Lem traced his ancestry back to the Pilgrims, and the Kennedys were flattered by his love for Jack because they had tried unsuccessfully to break into Boston high society.

The Office of the Presidency has a tremendous influence on the morals of the people of the United States . . . and the entire world. That is why Satan is pushing his perverted homosexual agenda from the highest office in the land.

Jack Kennedy had numerous female lovers . . . but he preferred to sleep with his boyfriend Lem Billings.

Here is a report from Rose Kennedy's chauffeur Frank Saunders. When Frank first started working as a chauffeur, he missed picking up Joe Kennedy at the airport, so he was afraid of losing his job:

I hadn't heard any such thing, not from Johnny Ford or any member of the family. But as far as the help was concerned, Rose Kennedy's absence was a bonus. "Count your blessings, Frank," one of the maids said. I kept silent. Besides, I was still not certain how much longer I'd have the chauffeur job. I'd had trouble falling asleep the night before, still thinking about the incident in the driveway with Mr. Kennedy and how I was sure I had lost the Kennedy job just as it was beginning. I figured Mr. Kennedy would wait until this Memorial Day weekend reunion with his son was over and then put the kibosh on me.
Then there was some talk about my having stayed up until after one to meet the president. I made the mistake of asking who this friend Lem Billings was. "Oh, him! He's always here," Dora Lawrence said. "I think he sleeps with Jack more than Jacqueline does," she said.
This was all so new to me, I did not know what the maid was talking about. And evidently I showed it. The maid laughed, a kind of half laugh. "President Kennedy doesn't like to sleep alone, Frank. Lem Billings is an old school chum, and he's always with him," she said. (Saunders, Torn Lace Curtain, pp. 45-46).

Lem Billings had his very own room at the White House. Here is a quote from Lemmings biographer, David Pitts:

As the administration got under way, Lem came to Washington almost every weekend, flying down from New York, where he was still working for Lennen & Newell. He stayed at the White House so often that he was given his own room on the third floor. He would leave some of his belongings there, so it effectively became Lem's room. No one else stayed in it. "Lem was in and out of the White House almost as much as the White House usher, and some people saw him so much they thought he was the Secret Service," said Jack's aide Dave Powers. (Pitts, Jack & Lem, p. 192).

That Billings knew Jack intimately is verified by his own words:

Asked a year after Jack died why they were so close despite their differing interests and temperaments, and why their friendship had changed so little over the years, Lem said, "I suppose it must have changed a little, but I probably spent more time with him than any of his friends, even during his years in the presidency. . . . He relaxed with me because I didn't really talk to him about any political matters, or any of the matters he had on his mind all during his workweek, and I mean this from the time he was congressman on through the presidency. I don't know that we had a lot of things in common. I guess just the fact that we'd known each other intimately for thirty-two years is a pretty strong bond in itself, so I felt that I understood him, understood his sense of humor and he understood mine. I guess, just by habit, that we continued to enjoy each other. It's very easy to see why I enjoyed him. I suppose that he felt the same way. I think that was it. Probably having me around was relaxing, because he knew me so well. I don't know what else it was." (Pitts, Jack & Lem, p. 218).

East meets West with Jackie and Ari!!

Jackie was not blind to her husband's homosexual relationship with Lem Billings . . . and his frequent adulteries.

She got her revenge by having affairs of her own. A close "friend" of Jackie was Greek multimillionaire shipping magnate, Aristotle Onassis:

Jackie's sister, Lee Radziwell, was also on the Aegean cruise.

This photo of Jackie on the Aegean cruise threatened to derail the hopes of Kennedy to serve a second term as President. However, she was persuaded to return home and assume the role of dutiful loving spouse. That charade ended with her husband's assassination just a month later.

Jackie Onassis went to meet her Maker in New York City on May 19, 1994. She is buried next to President Kennedy in Arlington National Cemetery.

Editor's Note

The first book on the assassination of President Kennedy was Red Roses from Texas by Nerin E. Gun. No publisher in the U.S. would touch his book so it was printed in London....A used copy will cost you about $500.00 dollars.....That's right, $500.00 dollars!!
