JFK Assassination

November 22, 2021

Today, on November 22, 1963, 46-year-old President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas.

Kennedy had been planning to tour Texas on November 22 and 23 to gain support for his New Frontier political agenda. He began in Fort Worth, where he gave two talks and then took a brief flight to Dallas that fateful day.

Kennedy and Texas Governor John Connolly and their wives rode in an open-top convertible through Dealey Plaza on their way to the next planned speech at a Dallas business meeting. The motorcade had stopped twice earlier so Kennedy could shake hands with supporters. There were no incidents.

At 12:30 pm, CST, the motorcade took a sharp turn at Dealey Plaza. Shots rang out. The President had been hit. His mouth hung open in anguish. The bullet hit him through the upper back and throat. Another shot hit Kennedy in the head.

The limousine sped up. Jacqueline Kennedy screamed. Secret Service agents attempted to get between the President and his assailant, but they were too late. Thirty minutes later, the President was declared dead at Parkland Hospital.

Governor Connolly was also severely injured by bullets in the attack. He survived. The two wives were not struck.

The assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, had shot the President and the Governor from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository building. He later killed a policeman who questioned him and was arrested in a movie theater.

      I was 13 yrs old. In 8th grade. They closed the school. Teachers were crying. Parents were crying. Even some of the news casters on black & white TV were crying. I did not fully understand what had just happened. We were all in shock. I don’t know how many rounds were fired. I’ll try to look it up. It was a very sad day.

      Cindy, we may never know the whole truth.

      You are correct….If IF Oswald fires a shot, he hit John Conley. There was enough time between first shot and Kennedy that Conley told driver Bill that he thought he had been shot.

    I agree Lee Harvey Oswald was not the shooter, he was the fall guy. I believe between the Mafia and Castro they had hired the real hit men, most likely behind the grassy Knoll.

    Oswald did NOT kill JFK. Your credibility is shot by perpetuating that absurdity.

    I believe that Oswald was a shooter but not the only shooter on that fateful day in Dallas.

    When you shoot someone in the back of the head, the front blows out, Kennedy’s head blew out from the back, hence he had also been shot from the front, government has always covered this up!

    Please stop printing this bogus story…this was a political coup and it’s shameful that nothing has been done to change this absolutely ridiculous narrative…America changed drastically on 11/22/1963 and has never recovered from the trauma of this Banana Republic murder…

    The laws of physics prove that he was shot from the front. The police on motorcycles ten
    or fifteen feet behind the limo were splattered with his blood and brainmatter.

    U don’t even answer your own question! How many shots WERE fired? And from what directions? Basic questions like this have never been appropriately addressed by those calling themselves journalists. TV addicts have been fed drivel for what, now 58 years?

    I remember this well, we were in American history class, when we heard over the loud speaker that Kennedy was shot, then later, he was dead. Many cried in the class & every one stood around the tv, in lobby, to watch it during passing period. So sad!

    Lee harvey Oswald did not shoot JFK and Gov Connally…… hell he almost got kicked out of the US Military because he could not shoot very well……. And a few years later top marksmen from all over the US proved at Quantico Marine Corp Base they could not make the shots that Oswald is accused of doing…….. how did Oswald get from the Book Depository to east side of Dallas in less than an hour and got arrested in a movie theater …….he had no vehicle….. then shot and killed by a man dying of cancer…… none of this was possible without the full cooperation of LBJ…. I’ve got more but my fingers are to big to type on this Communist cell phone……….

    While the possibility of a conspiracy and of other persons involvement has always been on the minds of many there is no hard evidence to prove anyone other than Lee Harvey Oswald was responsible for the murder of John F. Kennedy. The subsequent murder of Oswald by Jack Ruby certainly adds to the mystery. Oswald’s rifle was found near the scene of the Dealey Plaza ambush and it was in a position to allow the shooting to take place. We may never know the whole truth and I suppose history is all the more interesting with a few mysteries. Given the passage of time–now almost 60 years–most of those likely to have been involved are likely dead as well.

    Cindy Staggs!!!….You are absolutely correct!…..Oswald didn’t fire ONE SHOT that day!!…..I’ve studied this in depth since 1969, and I can prove there were FIVE shooters that day!…#1…from the Book Depository #2….from the Gassey Knowel #3…..From the front ( which caused an inward bulge in the windshield parimeter chrome, AND fractured the windshield….this is the bullet that deflected down from the windshield chrome, and hit GoV. John Connally in the wrist #4….Head shot came upwards from the sewer slit in the curb…The NEW LIMO DRIVER stops 7 seconds when the shots rang out, putting JFK literally 3 feet from that shooter…..this is why JFK was pushed UP AND TO THE LEFT, since that high powered bullet was shot UPWARDS, and hit JFK right in the head #5…shooter across Dailey Plaza, missing completely, and leaving 3 bullet holes “upward” from the sidewalk, toward the grassey knowel, proving a 5th shooter……a Dallas cop discovered the bullet holes in the sod, called over 2 secret service men to show them, and they directed a man in work clothes to cut that part of the sod out, and it was taken away…..this part of the all day video was on only 3 times, before taken off, and to this day, has not been seen again!….Jim Eastwood—assassination researcher for over 52 years.

    If you believe the Warren commission report and magic bullet theory, I have a bridge in the desert ill sell you. LHO is an enigma who was an operative of probably the CIA. He goes freely to Russia during the cold War, marries a Russian and comes back to the US with no debrief. It goes even before then when he was in the military…..in top secret radar division..

    Cindy is correct. Oswald didn’t shoot anybody. If we exhume Officer Tippit’s body we may find JFK. Tippit was a JFK look-alike used as a body double.

    I was a Third grader when President Kennedy was murdered in Dallas. I will never forget it. My classmates and I could not believe what happened. I remember feeling so awful, especially for Caroline and John as they lost their Dad. The ‘What Ifs are always a reminder to me that Horrific things can happen. I will never forget it.

    False History Oswald was never a shooter or a spotter he was the fall guy. It’s a shame and a sad reality showing just how corrupt and crooked our government and the fake news mockingbird media journalist are that after 50 years this same false narrative is being repeated without any hesitation.
