The 55TH Anniversary of the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Sam Ditshego

Today marks the fifty fifth anniversary of the assassination of US President, John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Who killed Kennedy and why? When are the JFK classified documents going to be declassified?

Many people are not aware that after the assassination of US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy fifty five years ago all the US federal telephone lines were not working. They are also not aware that when his brains were blown out by the assassins’ guns, his wife held them in her hands and were taken away by US agents and were not subjected to ballistic testing because they disappeared. Many people are not aware that Justice Earl Warren who was appointed to head the Warren Commission into the assassination of Kennedy was the Establishment’s man. The Warren Commission was therefore a whitewash meant to a cover up the assassination. If the South African and world media wants to be taken seriously they must not tell the world the US government’s official version of  the assassination of Kennedy.  

Last year the US government promised its citizens that it was going to declassify documents on the assassination of its former president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy who was killed in broad daylight, November 1963 in Dallas, Texas. But the US government instead released salacious documents on Dr Martin Luther King Jr perhaps to divert attention from the explosive information that has been emerging through meticulous research in the last fifty five years about the assassination of their own President. This is another racist ploy to create a stereotypical image of an African American. However, this diversionary tactic and red-herring are not going to work.

Rather than using an African American leader they assassinated as a scapegoat, the US government should explain to its citizens how their president could be murdered in broad daylight without anybody being caught and brought to book. When I first learned last year that the US government was going to release files on the assassination of JF Kennedy, I didn’t believe it because it acted in concert with other powerful forces to assassinate Kennedy which won’t allow it to expose them. Those forces, as it will be revealed in this article, are more powerful than the US government itself.

Many people will agree with me that in 1963, it wasn’t possible to kill a US president in broad daylight and get away with it. The person or people who killed JF Kennedy to this day have not been exposed. It wasn’t Lee Harvey Oswald who killed Kennedy. He was a patsy. By the same token, James Earl Ray, the alleged assassin of Dr King, went to his grave denying ever killing him. Those who killed Patrice Lumumba and Malcolm X were also organised by the CIA and FBI. However, there is a common thread in these assassinations.

An assassination has a motive. Those who plan and/or carry it out have a lot to gain and have the means and power to carry it out without being detected or they are able to cover their tracks. What was the motive for the assassination of JF Kennedy and who was behind his assassination? Eric Jon Phelps, one of the Kennedy assassination researchers blames the Jesuits otherwise known as the Society of Jesus which he says was in command and control of the Roman hierarchy at the Vatican as well as their General, Jean-Baptiste Janssens and Cardinal Francis Spellman of a military order or secret society known as the Knights of Malta. The Knights of Malta fall under the Jesuits. At the time of his assassination, members of the Knights of Malta were in key positions of power in the US government including the CIA and FBI. CIA Director John Alexander McCone and FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover were both members of the Knights of Malta at the time of the Kennedy assassination.

What was the motive to assassinate JF Kennedy? He was “disobedient”. His speech of 1961 in which he criticised secret societies bears testimony to that fact. Let me quote the relevant passage to buttress my point. “The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.”

He resisted the papacy and those who know the Jesuit oath of secrecy will understand what it means to defy the papacy. He resisted the Jesuits, Knights of Malta and wanted to put a stop to the Cold War hoax which was created by the Knights of Malta since they gained from it by using one faction against the other. The Knights of Malta controlled both sides of the Cold War. One of the aims of the Cold War was to dismantle the British Empire because it was protestant. The Vatican regards Protestantism as the enemy. Kennedy also wanted to stop the Cold War from which the Knights of Malta benefited. He wanted to stop the Zionist Israeli government from acquiring nuclear weapons against the wishes of the Vatican which wanted Israel to have the supremacy of weapons. He wanted to stop the drug trade from which the CIA and the Mafia benefited. He wanted to stop the Knights of Malta and Jesuits controlled Federal Reserve and to dismantle the CIA because they lied to him about the Bay of Pigs. Kennedy also wanted to end the war in Vietnam and had issued an Executive Order for pulling US troops out of Vietnam which was reversed on the 25th November by Lyndon B Johnson. Those are organisations and people who gained from Kennedy’s assassination.

In his own words, Kennedy said, “One day, after I am long gone, you will remember me and say, we should have stopped the nuclear programme of Israel, abolished the Federal Reserve and kicked all secret societies, occultists, usurpers and Zionists out of our wonderful country, to keep it that way, but it is never too late, just remember that”.

There are millions who will concur with JF Kennedy, especially the Palestinians, Afghanis, Iraqis, Libyans and most Americans. One of the Kennedy assassination researchers, the late John Judge said that democracy in the US died with Kennedy. The third Kennedy assassination researcher, Bill Cooper had what seemed like the original Zapruder film since the one US authorities confiscated was doctored not to show William Grier, the driver of the Limousine in which Kennedy and his wife were traveling turn around and shoot at Kennedy. Cooper helped to bring that angle into research, analysis and discussion of the film. It turned out that Abraham Zapruder was a CIA agent contracted by the CIA to film Kennedy’s motorcade and assassination but not to show Grier shooting at Kennedy. Grier drove Kennedy towards the storm drain from where another sniper shot at Kennedy with a rifle. According to eye-witnesses, there were about four shots fired from both sides of the motorcade but the US official version is that a lone gun man shot at Kennedy once.

Lee Oswald was also said to have had low level connections with the CIA and FBI but had nothing to do with Kennedy’s assassination. The person who assassinated Oswald, Jack Ruby, was a member of the Mafia and an FBI informant. He was ordered to kill Oswald so that there shouldn’t be a trial because too many things didn’t add up. For example, Kennedy was shot on the right side of his head on the temples but the US official version is that he was shot from the back of the head and they doctored the post-mortem results.

These are the sticking points and thorny issues the US government should focus on and explain to its citizens how their President was overthrown through a coup de’ tat on November 1963 and by whom instead of besmirching Dr King who can’t defend himself.
