Dear Friends and Loved Ones,
Today, Nov 22, 2013, is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. About 6 years ago, quite by accident, I took a passing interest in the assassination of JFK. My research into the assassination of JFK took me on a path into the dark underbelly of the CIA, and from there, I traced a web of criminality that ran throughout the huge sections of federal government, the political power structure, and the business interests that control our country.
As I researched more, I learned that the criminal network behind JFK’s assassination did not retire after his killing. Instead, the need to cover up past crimes has motivated them to commit more crimes in a never ending cycle that continues to this present day.
I have tracked this criminal network through time, and I have learned that this cabal has been the most significant political force in the United States for the last 50 years. Yet most people don’t have any idea that it exists.
My research project has grown to be a major interest in my life. I have a total of 180 books on the topics of the JFK assassination and the ensuing actions of the criminal cabal that seized control of our government. 70 of these books I have read cover to cover, and the rest I have either read a particular section or skimmed. I have dozens and dozens of books on my “to read” list, as I am continually researching different strands of government criminality. In addition to reading books, I have spent
countless hours doing research on the internet.
I now have a profound understanding of the dark forces that control how politics in our country really work. 50 years ago a network of criminals took control of our government, and they have not let go until the present day. I cannot passively accept living in a country where the democracy has been overthrown, yet I cannot help but feel helpless against powerful forces that have been systematically killing their opposition for decades.
In my desire to heal our democracy, I have searched for answers as to how the powerless can confront the powerful. When confronted with evil that they could not prevent, Quakers have a tradition of
bearing witness, so that this evil does not pass unnoted. On this 50th anniversary of the Coup d’état known as the JFK assassination, this document is my attempt to bear witness to the crimes of the last 50 years in my hope that, in my own small way, my voice can help repair our country.
He realised that the conspiracy faced by the world was a threat to every human being, even the rich and powerful. He wanted out.
As I have studied the hidden history of the United States for the last 50 years, I have not only learned of criminal networks embedded within our government, I also have learned the stories of many, many honest Americans who have fought to save our country. These unsung heroes of democracy have fought courageously to save the soul of our country. These Americans have risked their careers and their lives so that our dreams of freedom and democracy would not die.
This document is dedicated to the hundreds and hundreds of Americans who have paid with their lives the ultimate price of confronting the cabal embedded within our government.
The Coup of ‘63
Among serious researchers of JFK’s assassination, a remarkable unanimity of opinion has been achieved. Thanks to the tens of thousands of man years of effort that have gone into studying the JFK assassination, the depth and breadth of the plot can be known. The plot was a giant domestic conspiracy that involved elements of the entire US power structure.
The assassination of JFK was part of a full scale Coup d’état, the violent take of over of our government by a group of criminals. I have not the slightest doubt in my mind that JFK’s assassination was the work of a network of criminals embedded within the political system and power structure of the United States. Key among the players in the Coup of ’63 were LBJ; Allen Dulles and the CIA; J Edgar Hoover and the FBI; right wing Texas oil executives including Clint Murchison Sr., H.L. Hunt and D.H. Byrd; the East Coast business establishment centered around Rockefeller interests and the Council on Foreign Relations; Curtis Le May (chairman of the joint chief of staff), other right wing leaders of the military and elements of military intelligence; and the Bush family (both Prescott and George H.W. Bush).
In 1961, President Eisenhower in his farewell address warned against “the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought of unsought, by the military industrial complex”. Eisenhower continued, “The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” Perhaps, Eisenhower may have more accurately have described this threat as the military – intelligence complex as the CIA had been operating free from proper oversight since its founding in 1947. Acting under the cover of protecting the world from communism, powerful interests found American imperialism to be enormously profitable, and the secrecy within the CIA provided the perfect environment for criminal elements to prosper.
JFK was aware of these forces, and he chose to fight against them. JFK and his brother RFK took on a host of entrenched corrupt interests: the CIA, big business, the mafia, and the corrupt Texas interests surrounding LBJ. A huge swath of the American power structure was at risk of being displaced and even ending up in jail by the crusades of the Kennedy brothers. LBJ was incredibly corrupt. He even had his own personal hit man, Mac Wallace, who had been killing people for a decade to keep LBJ’s crimes from being exposed. With RFK as attorney general, J Edgar Hoover of the FBI could no longer protect the mob. Top mafia chieftains including Carlos Marcelos and Salvatore Trafficante risked
trading their sweet mafia kingpin lifestyle for a life behind bars due to RFK’s crusade against the mafia.
The CIA was out of control, and JFK had vowed to smash the CIA to 1000 pieces. Right wing cold warrior generals in charge on the US military were just itching for a (possibly nuclear) war with the Soviet Union, and JFK’s calls for peace were viewed as being treason among the right wing set. Leaders of giant companies used to having a compliant government do their bidding found that JFK actually looked out for the interests of the little guy. Add on to this, the Kennedys’ support for the civil rights movement
gaining strength in the South, and a huge array of powerful entrenched, entitled interests was in position to be mobilized to resist change.
But potential does not equal action, and it took the political genius of Lyndon Baines Johnson to activate these forces to bring about a Coup d’état. The Kennedys and Johnson were involved in a sub-rosa war from the beginning on their administration. Bobby Kennedy was telling the Washington press corps that it was open season on LBJ, and Bobby was having the justice department feed information on LBJ’s corruption to a number of different Senate investigations any one of which could have ended LBJ’s career and started his slide toward prison.
But LBJ may not have needed the impetus of fear for his career and freedom to motivate him to kill JFK. As majority leader of the Senate, LBJ was arguably the second most powerful man in Washington.
Many of his colleagues were surprised when LBJ accepted the nomination for vice president, an office which his fellow Texan and former VP John Garner described as being “not worth a bucket of warm piss”. Clare Boothe Luce asked LBJ why he agreed to be VP, and LBJ told her that he had done research and 6 out of 33 of the presidents had managed to achieve office without being elected, and he told her
“I’m a gambling man.” But a study of LBJ’s history shows that he was anything but a gambling man. In fact, LBJ was a man who left nothing to chance. Most likely, LBJ planned to kill JFK from the moment he considered becoming vice president.
Although John F. Kennedy was finally killed in Dallas on Nov 22, 1963, the plot to kill him was active for at least a couple of years. The first attempt to kill JFK, of which I am aware, was to take place in Mexico City at the end of June 1962 but was aborted due to last minute escape problems. From that time on, JFK was a hunted man. Other attempts were planned for Los Angeles, Grand Rapids, Chicago, Tampa, Miami, and Houston. The planned assassination attempt on JFK in Miami on June 18, 1963 was foiled
when people loyal to JFK leaked word of the plot and the planned motorcade was canceled in favor of helicopter transport.
By the time Nov 22nd rolled around, LBJ was getting increasingly desperate. The Dec 6, 1963 issue of Life Magazine, due to be printed and mailed on Nov 29, 1963, was set to run an expose of Lyndon Johnson’s corruption that could have ended his career. The earlier plots to kill JFK that were designed with more distance between the coup plotters and the trigger men had failed, and now Johnson risked more active involvement by having his people directly orchestrate both the motorcade planning and the
take apart of the president’s secret service protection.
By the time JFK’s motorcade rolled through Dallas, little had been left to chance. As Chauncy Holt said, “There were more mercenaries in Dealey Plaza that day than at a Soldier of Fortune convention”. The success of the Coup depended not upon the ability of the shooters to escape undetected, but upon the certitude that the cabal behind the assassination could control the investigation and the story reported in the media. JFK had no idea how little chance he had of making it through Dealey Plaza alive. The Dallas police protection of the motorcade route ended right at the start of Dealey Plaza. In fact, one of the shooters was probably a Dallas police officer. The secret service protection surrounding JFK was removed. In my estimate, 6 shooters awaited from a variety of vantage points. The secret service agent driving JFK’s car brought the car to a complete stop, and a barrage of shots from all directions converged on JFK. After confirming that JFK had been killed, JFK’s driver put the car in motion and continued driving.
The Coup of ’63 did not end with the killing of JFK. The shooting part of the assassination was relatively small compared to the cover up. The planning for the cover up was built into fabric of the plot. Lee Harvey Oswald was set up at the patsy. Oswald did not fire a shot in Dallas. Lee Harvey Oswald was a CIA contract agent who had been sent into Russia as a fake defector. He then returned to the US and used his time in Russia as an entry into the left wing pro-Castro movement. Lee Harvey Oswald is a fairly minor character in the Coup of ’63, but through him, a multi-layered counter-intelligence plot can be seen.
