The ‘Lone Gunman’, the Assassination of JFK and the ‘Vegas Massacre’

Gary G. Kohls, MD

“We’ll know our disinformation campaign is complete when everything the American people believe is false.” – William Casey, Director of the CIA under Ronald Reagan (1981)

It has been 54 years since November 22, 1963, the date of the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy in Dallas, TX. Many eyewitnesses who were on the scene distinctly heard rifle shots coming from the “grassy knoll” at Dealey Plaza. 
Ever since that fateful day, every attentive, alert, non-distracted, truth-seeking American patriot who wants and needs to know the truth of the matter has been asking questions and doing independent investigations because they don’t believe the official, approved story. With every deceptive, dismissive or untruthful answer, these patriots know that they are being duped by the very unbelievable story that they are being given. 

Being treated as ignoramuses or loony “conspiracy theorists” has a way of energizing intelligent folks who have seen through official attempts at obfuscation, which is why more and more inquiring people are losing confidence in our nation’s over-privileged and often sociopathic, serially-lying elites, politicians, corporatists, multibillionaires, militarists, talking heads, celebrities and other so-called leaders.  

I also have been energized to find out the truth about what institutional or individual conspirators were behind the obvious, censored-out plans to assassinate JFK, MLK, RFK and the many false flag operations (which by definition are conspiracies) that, for example, justified the bombing of North Vietnam (Gulf of Tonkin incident) and the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq (the controlled demolitions of 9/11/01). Being treated with disdain by elites who have a lot to lose (and their paid trolls), is why 9/11 Truth-seekers are such committed investigators.
The examples of false flag operations from history are legion (google “The Ever-Growing List of ADMITTED False Flag Attacks” for scores of examples of mainly US military or intelligence service false flag ops).
Over the 50 years since the Kennedy assassination (which could be rightfully be considered a coup d’etat) many honorable, patriotic and independent investigators have uncovered a plethora of documented truths that have cast doubt or directly contradicted the “no conspiracy” conclusions about the “lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald” or the “lone gunman James Earl Ray” (MLK’s falsely accused killer), the “lone gunman Sirhan Sirhan” (one of RFK’s assassins) or, for that matter, James Holmes (the ‘Batman shooter’ of Aurora, CO who undoubtedly did not act alone) or Stephen Paddock (the ‘Las Vegas shooter’ who looks like he was just a patsy rather than being one of several shooters). 
Every attempt by independent investigators to provide documentary proof that contradicts official government agency stories - about agency involvement or that there was more than one shooter - provokes fake outrage and vigorous attempts to discredit the whistle-blower or otherwise debunk any incriminating information. 

The same type of attempts at debunking happens all the time when corruption in Big Business is exposed. Every Big Business has full-time lobbyists that are well-placed in positions of power. These lobbyist/trolls are – as part of their job description – supposed to obfuscate or contradict any and all unwelcome information that weakens their corporation’s profitability. 

Such “trolls” have often carefully developed cozy relationships with politicians, bureaucratic agencies and the mainstream media, which gives them powerful control over any message that gets out to the public. The same thing happens in doctor’s offices, when Big Pharma’s sales “reps” wine and dine us doctors in order to get us to listen to their sales pitches. This time-honored technique has been used by snake oil salesmen from time immemorial and helps to explain how it is that pro-corporate legislation gets such favorable treatment in legislative bodies by politicians whose paymasters are subtly demanding a return on their “investment” (ie pay-back for their campaign bribery/donations).  He who pays the piper, calls the tune.
Peace and justice activist groups have learned similar lessons as well, having to repeatedly endure FBI or secret service “agents provocateur” that infiltrate their groups in order to spy on them or to get them to engage in dubious activities that could lead to legal charges. 
Last week the Trump administration tried to OK the lawful release of some of the previously top secret, censored-out Warren Commission papers that were sealed from public scrutiny after their infamous hearings had been completed. The release of the documents had been legislated to occur after 25 years had passed, but had been repeatedly delayed by every subsequent administration since the 1980s. As has become obvious, the CIA and FBI have been very selective in what documents were released. Knowing the nature of the Deep State that are in control of our alleged democracy, we will never know everything that needs to be known in order to make sense of our history. 

Planning and executing secret conspiracies is what all spy agencies do,  and the CIA and FBI are no exception; and since they refuse to talk and reveal what those conspiracies are all about, the duty of anybody who is a seeker of justice is to investigate the secrets. Hence being a conspiracy theorist is an honorable endeavor, especially when the conspirators may be performing unethical activities or cover-ups of crimes.

The Warren Commission was charged to investigate the JFK assassination, but the appointments were all rabid Cold Warriors. The decision to regard certain testimony as a top secret national security issue came about because the members of the commission felt that we naïve and simple-minded taxpayers couldn’t handle the truth. Instead, fearful of incurring the wrath of their own CIA (or risking assassination themselves?) operatives, the commission criminally conspired to hide the hideous truths about the CIA’s and FBI’s involvement in the JFK assassination. 
Knowing the track record of the many covert operations that American intelligence agencies have orchestrated around the world ever since World War II, there are no politicians that have opposed the power or agendas of the CIA or Pentagon (Paul Wellstone was the last one). JFK famously proclaimed that he was going to “smash the CIA into a million pieces and scatter it to the wind” and every politician who similarly wanted to “drain the swamp” at Langley or the Pentagon has learned the lesson about who is really in charge in DC. 
I conclude this column with a recent piece about the JFK Assassination by Paul Craig Roberts.

The Kennedy Assassination

By Paul Craig Roberts
 October 28, 2017

Dear Readers, some of you are pushing me to continue with the Las Vegas shooting story (ballistics evidence proving multiple shooters using different weapons at different locations – GGK Note) while others are asking to know what to make of the release of files pertaining to President Kennedy’s assassination. I appreciate that you are interested and are unsatisfied with official explanations.
My answer is that we already know, thanks to exhaustively researched books such as James W. Douglass’ JFK and the Unspeakable (Simon & Schuster, 2008), far more than is in the released files.
My answer is also that it doesn’t matter what we know or what the facts are, the official story will never be changed. For example, we know as an absolute indisputable fact that Israel intentionally attacked the USS Liberty inflicting enormous casualties on US Navy personnel, and the US government continues the coverup that it was all a mistake despite unequivocal statements to the contrary by the Moorer Commission, led by Admiral Tom Moorer, former Chief of Naval Operations and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

My answer also is that time is better spent in trying to prevent conspiracies in the making, such as the endless stream of lies and accusations against Russia that are turning a friendly country into an enemy and renewing the risk of nuclear armageddon. Indeed, the biggest conspiracy theory of the present time is the one issuing from the military/security complex, the Democratic National Committee, and the presstitute media that Russia in collusion with Donald Trump hacked the US presidential election.

The Russian government knows that this is a lie, and when they see a lie repeated endlessly now for one year without a shred of evidence to support it, the Russian government naturally concludes that Washington is preparing the American people for war. I cannot imagine a more reckless and irresponsible policy than destroying Russia’s trust in Washington’s intentions. As Putin said, the main lesson life has taught him is that “if a fight is unavoidable, strike first.”
If you really want to know who killed President Kennedy and why, read JFK and the Unspeakable. Yes, there are other carefully researched books that you can read.
Douglass concludes that Kennedy was murdered because he turned to peace. He was going to work with Khrushchev to end the Cold War. He refused the CIA US air cover for the Bay of Pigs invasion. He rejected the Joint Chiefs’ Operation Northwoods, a plan to conduct false flag attacks on Americans that would be blamed on Castro to justify regime change. He refused to reappoint General Lyman Lemnitzer as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. He told US Marine commandant General David Shoup that he was taking the US out of Vietnam. He said after his reelection he was going to “break the CIA into 1,000 pieces.” All of this threatened the power and profit of the military/security complex and convinced military/security elements that he was soft on communism and a threat to US national security.
The film of the motorcade taken by Zapruder shows that the bullet that killed Kennedy hit him from the front, blowing out the back of his head. You can see Kennedy’s wife Jackie reaching from the back seat onto the trunk of the limo to recover the back of his head. Other tourist films show moments before the shot the Secret Service agents being ordered off of the presidential limo so that a clear shot at Kennedy is possible. The film shows one Secret Service agent protesting the order.

The medical “evidence” that Kennedy was hit from behind was falsified by medical doctors under orders. Navy medical corpsmen who helped the Navy doctors with the autopsy testified that they were dismayed by orders from Admiral Calvin Galloway to ignore entry wounds from the front. One of the corpsmen testified “all at once I understood that my country was not much better than a third world country. From that point on in time, I have had no trust, no respect for the government.”
Dr Charles Crenshaw, one of the doctors forced to lie, later broke his silence with a book and was rewarded with a fierce media campaign to discredit him.
Lt. Commander William Pitzer, director of the Audio-Visual Department of the Bethesda Naval Hospital, filmed the autopsy. The film clearly showed the entry wound from the front. Pitzer was found shot to death on the floor of the production studio of the National Naval Medical Center. It was ruled a suicide, as always.

J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI knew that Oswald, who Douglas believes was on the payroll of both the CIA and FBI, was sent to Cuba by the CIA in order to establish the story for the patsy role Oswald was unaware was being prepared for him. However, Hoover, along with LBJ, Earl Warren and the members of the Warren Commission understood that it was impossible to tell the American people that their president has been assassinated by the US military and US security agencies. At a dicey time of the Cold War, clearly it would have been reckless to destroy Americans’ trust in their own government.

Finian Cunningham presents a summary of much of the accumulated evidence. All experts long ago concluded that the Warren Commission report is a coverup.

I am not an expert. I have not spent 30 years or longer, as has Douglass, investigating, interviewing witnesses, tracking down unexplained deaths of witnesses, and piecing together the available voluminous information. if you want to know what happened, put down your smart phones, close your video screens, and read Douglass’ or a similar book.
