Chronicle of a Death Retold
Vanity Fair, by James Wolcott

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/6/2013 4:43:26 PM

It will be an anniversary draped in black crêpe and ribboned with old newsreels, a day of somber re-appraisals by the usual bores and lurid speculations by the usual loons. But beneath the cacophony, not all of it generated by Chris Matthews’s yap, will rest the severed feeling of irretrievable, inexplicable loss. Fifty years ago, on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated riding in a motorcade cruising through Dallas’s Dealey Plaza, the top of his head torn off by a rifle shot fired from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, his brain matter spilling

Comments:
I have read too many books already about the assassination. There´s nothing left to tell.

This Wolcott is very difficult to read. He writes in essay-length paragraphs encompassing at least five or six ideas instead of one. No time to fool with a liberal who thinks he can write.

I was 12 years old when kennedy was shot. It was traumatic and it shook our nation to its core. However, kennedy was not special, he wasn´t even a very good president. Camelot was a joke and joe kennedy passed along his demons to his sons. The belief that jfk was something exceptional and would have transformed the US into heaven on earth is just so much pixie dust. When one dies young it is easy to write "what might have been". You don´t have all those ugly facts to get in the way. The msm covered his butt just like they are covering obama´s today. It was all a fraud, a mirage, make believe. It was horrible that he died that way and it left its mark on our country. But everyone can be replaced. I just wish a third of what is said about kennedy was true, but it isn´t. I will reflect back on the 22nd and remember. But I will not buy into this "happy talk" of the kennedy years.

I agree. This Wolcott dude is even more syrupy than Peggy Noonan after two glasses of Pinot.

After 50 years my main takeaway is that JFK was killed by an infantile anti-Amertcan crud-ball and the Democrat party has been emulating the assassin ever since.

The death of JFK was emblematic of what happened to the Democrat party and - unfortunately - to a large extent, America.

Fact is, Kennedy was an anti-Communist and his stupid younger brother talked him into taking out Fidel Castro numerous times, eventually resulting in the "Bay of Pigs Fiasco." All of thee actions required the authority of the lefts´ much beloved, darling, President Emperor.

Kennedy was gunned down by an anti-American, Communist, Cuba-loving, former Marine named Lee Harvey Oswald. End of story.

#6, the Bay of Pigs project actually started under Eisenhower...it was one of those rare cases where a new President could legitimately claim he "inherited a problem" from his predecessor.

However, the original plan was completely different from the grand debacle that finally unfolded on a Cuban beach in 1961. Unlike Ike, JFK did not have the guts to assert directly the United States´ interest in not having an outpost of Communism literally in its front yard. This cowardice was at the root of all the program changes, in the name of "plausible deniability", that led to its grand failure, America´s public humiliation, and Kennedy´s desire to regain his lost standing by way of an obscure land called South Vietnam.

The assassination elevated Kennedy´s presidency from mediocre at best to legendary. The assassination made Kennedy a saint/martyr who must never be denigrated or questioned. And the democrats have been propping up that corpse for 50 years.

Without the assassination, I doubt that any Kennedy would have gained public office or held it for long.

Where to begin?

With #7, who has that particular history correct.

Next up... the photo of JFK provided with article is silly... a prayer book?
He used visits to church as cover for his playboy activities, as Clinton did.
Recall Billyboobboob Klintoon walking out of church holding Hillary´s hand and in
his other hand waving a Bible at onlookers, then headed back to a Sunday rendesvouz in the Oral Orifice with Monica.

As far as the assassination details...
the conclusion of the liberoid Warren Commission Report is false and concocted.
It contradicts much of the evidence contained within it.

I´ll encapsulate below in a moment...

Quickly and briefly...

Roger Mudd was a very good newsman. He hosted a special series for The History Channel.
It was called "The MEN Who Killed Kennedy".
You should see it.

Oswald was never above the second floor of Depository Bldg after 10:30am, according
to witnesses. He also had NO way to get back down to be found in the snack bar,
which was where he was on the second floor after the last shots were fired.

He never bragged or claimed to have shot JFK, and never expressed animosity toward
JFK either. He in fact told reporters (correctly) that he had not shot
anybody, that he was just a patsy, and that he did not know what he would be charged with.

J. Edgar Hoover hated all Kennedys, including JFK who wanted to fire Hoover.
Hoover knew of various plots, helped allow them to go thru, and covered up the
evidence as best he could.

JFK was blackmailed by Hoover and Lyin´ Lyndon into having LBJ on the ticket,
as pointed out by JFK secretary Evelyn Lincoln before she died.

JFK was also dumping Lyndon in 1964, as Lincoln wrote in her books.

Hoover and Johnson benefited and covered up what really happened.
See below.

As briefly as possible...

The plot to kill JFK in Miami several days earlier (Monday, November 18, 1963)
was foiled by switching from a motorcade to a helicopter ride to the speech.

The shooters then drove from Florida to Texas to kill JFK there. The Warren Com Report even
mentions that the shooters had an incident while driving through Louisiana.
It was reported and recorded, it´s in the Report.

Jack Ruby was seen by a Dallas newspaper reporter in the hospital hallway
where the "magic bullet" was found inexplicably on a stretcher outside
the emergency rooms.

The reporter asked him, "Jack, what are you doing here?" (this was Fri pm Nov 22).
Ruby mumbled a lame response. That was probably when the bullet got planted
as evidence.

The FBI tried to get the reporter to change his story, but he wouldn´t.

The autopsy doctors were not pathologists, and were ordered by military brass
what to do and what not to do. The original autopsy notes were burned as soon
as Oswald was shot dead.
That destruction of evidence was a crime.
So was the removal of JFK´s body from Texas.
The limo was quickly destroyed on LBJ´s orders. JFK´s brain went missing from the National Archives almost immediately.

And the list goes on... ad nauseum.
Only the uninformed believe the false conclusions put forward by liberoids
despite the ample evidence that is even contained in the Warren Comm Report.
Gotta go... sorry!

#7; that´s a cop-out to say Kennedy "inherited a problem" like a half-arsed amateur invasion of a sovereign country (even if it is Commie Cuba). General Dwight D. Eisenhower wasn´t some pampered Navy Lt. on a PT boat in the Pacific who got his boat sunk. Ike was clearly a more capable military commander than the son of the whiskey baron could ever claim.
More than likely Eisenhower had contingency plans, which ALL Presidents have, for a wide variety of things. Liberals seem to always find some "thread" back to a Republican Administration to justify their own screw-ups.

#11, #12; Lots of accusations, very little proof offered. It´s always "fun" to speculate, but that isn´t admissible in a Court of Law. The best analysis of this whole event is in the book written by Vincent Bugliosi called "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy." He has analyzed this in excruciating detail using every shred of evidence admissible, and came to the conclusion that Oswald did it, alone. I´m no fan of Bugliosi´s politics, but his work on this subject is without peer.

Re #10, 11, 12: Poppycock on wheels.

Oswald was the lone assassin--it was an easy 80 yard shot for him with his scoped rifle--and he fired from the sixth floor window of the Texas Book Depository after carrying the rifle up there wrapped in a rug. (He killed Dallas police officer J.D. Tippett shortly after he killed Kennedy and wounded Connelly.) I don´t like LBJ either, but he had nothing to do with Kennedy´s assassination.

You can see the topless 1961 Lincoln limousine in which JFK died in the Henry Ford Museum. If you don´t beloieve me, visit their website.

Sorry for the second post. The JFK limousine was cleaned up, fixed up, and used for several subsequent presidents. It remained in service until 1977.

Ages ago I read a story about the guy who drove it back to Detroit for repairs. He said there was all sorts of damage that was inconsistent with the Warren Commission version of events.

Wolcott´s worried, like most lefties, about "gun nuts". He´d disarm us in a heartbeat.
This is the fear of the NewYork liberal. They don´t have a moral leg to stand on, but are certain they know better.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.
