Anatomy of a Coup d'Etat
The Assassination of John F. Kennedy
The assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963 was a carefully-orchestrated coup d'etat, not a crime committed by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald.
The "official story" wants you to believe that a poor marksman using a faulty Italian-made rifle (Mannlicher Carcano) he purchased by mail order shot the president from behind from the sixth floor of the Dallas School Book Depository.
The government also wants you to believe that the fatal bullet came from behind, when all the evidence shows that the fatal shot came from the right front, forcing Kennedy's head violently backward, not forward as reported by Dan Rather and other members of the media.
Below is the Zapruder film. It is slowed down and focuses on Kennedy's head. It is quite clear that the shot comes from the right front, and that his head snaps violently backwards.
Please note that in the video description there are several additional versions of the Zapruder film as well that you should also take a look at.

The Magic Bullet Theory for Magical Thinkers
The Magic Bullet
A Case of "Magical Thinking"
The 'Magic Bullet' theory requires you to suspend all kinds of logic. My favorite section of this particular diagram is where the 'Magic Bullet' word bubble is. The bullet, magically and without actually hitting anything, takes an incredible right-hand turn in order to enter Governor Connally.
You will also note that it perpetuates the nonsense that the bullet came from BEHIND. None of the bullets came from behind. The first bullet, which hit the president's throat, came from the front. Watching the Zapruder fatal shot segment, it is clear that bullet came from the front as well.
See the diagram below.

The Lies, Cover-ups, and Inconsistencies Still Remain
We cannot cover all the myriad twists and turns in the assassination of John F. Kennedy and do it justice. It would almost take a website unto itself. What we will do is present what we think are the biggest lies, holes, cover-ups and inconsistencies in the story with links to information found elsewhere.
We will present the key characters in the story that, to this day, remains a puzzle waiting to be solved. Whatever the final solution to this puzzle it, I promise it does not corroborate the "lone nut" gunman and Communist sympathizer story.
John F. Kennedy evolved from candidate to president. He entered office a "hawk" on Viet Nam, but changed dramatically on this topic before his death. His plan was to run for re-election so that he could bring home all the troops by 1965. Kennedy refused to supply ground troops to the CIA for the Bay of Pigs invasion, and warned against carrying out the plan. if that wasn't enough, Kennedy wanted very badly to disband the CIA. He not only killed the Joint Chiefs' "Operation Northwoods" plan, a plan that sounds eerily simiar to the events of 9-11 whereby terrorist acts conducted against the American people would be blamed on Cuba, he demoted the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Lyman Lemnitzer, for even suggesting the operation to begin with.
The young president put a crimp in many peoples' style, and Kennedy made plenty of enemies his short time in office. There were no shortage of suspects with means, opportunity and motive.
Did the Limousine Slow Down or Stop?
As you will see in this piece of evidence, there are many eyewitnesses to the assassination who state that the limousine stopped briefly during the time of the shooting.
Was the Zapruder Film Altered?
The discussion of whether or not the limousine slowed down or stopped opens up the discussion of whether or not the Zapruder film was altered to hide that fact.
We do know that the original film in the National Archives, or the "extant film," does not have frames that show the limousine slowing or stopping, but whether or not the official video has been altered is up for debate.
Was the Secret Service Told to Stand Down?
Was JFK's detail told to stand down? They failed to respond after Kennedy was hit in the throat. Nobody rushes to protect the president prior to the fatal head shot.
Why were the limousine's side boards retracted, taking away access in the event something happened (which it did)?
The famous shot of the Secret Service agent jumping on the back of the limo is Clint Hill from Jackie Kennedy's detail.
Inconsistencies With the Medical Evidence
"Inconsistencies" might be a gentle word here. There were two groups of doctors, one in Bethesda and one in Dallas, and their recollections were often different. Both groups remember injuries that are not depicted in the photographs.
The latest release of JFK assassination documents reveals that the president's body may have been altered prior to the autopsy so that all bullets appear to have been fired from behind, that autopsy evidence (x-rays; photographs; the president's brain) is missing, and other autopsy evidence has been altered.
One pathologist testified under oath that the team was forbidden from dissecting the president's throat and back wounds.
Cast of Characters, Conspirators, and Criminals
There's a huge cast of characters involved in this historical event, some major players and "bit part" bad actors. This list may not yet be complete but, rest assured, we will be continually adding to and updating this site over time.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Lee Harvey Oswald
Jack Ruby was the Dallas nightclub owner who shot and killed Oswald on November 24 while in police custody after being charged. He had ties to organized crime and gambling, and had racked up a slew of minor offenses. Files released in 2017 indicate that Ruby told an FBI informant to "watch the fireworks" before the assassination.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the 35th President from January 1961 until his assassination on November 22, 1963. In his short time, Kennedy bucked the establishment, denying the CIA troop support for an invasion of Cuba, killing the Joint Chiefs' Operation Northwoods plan, and bucking the military-industrial machine.
The U.S. history books list Lee Harvey Oswald as the lone killer of JFK, but the jury remains out. Was he killer or patsy? Prior to JFK's murder, he had been on the radar of government agencies. The question remains, was Lee Harvey Oswald a "lone nut" assassin, or was he an agent of U.S. intelligence agencies acting on their behalf?
James Jesus Angleton
One of the NOLA connections to the JFK murder. Ferrie was an American pilot whom New Orleans D. A. Jim Garrison alleged was involved in the assassination plot. Garrison also alleged that Ferrie knew Oswald. Ferrie is one of those inconvenient connections it was best to not follow up on.
Allen Dulles was Kennedy's CIA director, and a pathologically evil man obsessed with power. One needs to look no further for Kennedy's killer. It is a well-known fact that JFK held little respect for the CIA and planned to weaken its influence. Dulles was having none of that. The Devil's Chessboard is a must read.
James Jesus Angleton was chief of CIA counter-
intelligence operations at the time of JFK's murder. He is another key player in the assassination who helped build the conspiracy aspect by witholding information. Angleton's known operations include the Enigma machine, the Manhattan Project, and Operation CHAOS.
George H. W. Bush
New Orleans businessman Clay Shaw is the only man to ever to be prosecuted for the murder of JFK. There is a mysterious liaison here between Shaw and several other players in the JFK assassination. In addition, internal CIA documents seem to show that the CIA was worried about what the Garrison prosecution of Shaw might actually turn up.
The Garrison investigation into the JFK killing is one of the most controversial aspects of this case. I, for one, however, believe in the investigation's legitimacy. There is no question that Garrison made the CIA nervous and that they spent considerable time discredting Garrison's character.
Would Poppy Bush's presence in Dallas on November 22, 1963 as a CIA employee surprise you? Don't be surprised. The Bush family has a lot of evil to hide. All you need to do is read Family of Secrets. Many suspect that the last batch of JFK docs that Trump withheld are the ones related to Poppy's complicity. He ain't dead yet. Unfortunately.
Lyndon Baines Johnson
J. D. Tippit
Lyndon Johnson is one of the most vulgar presidents in history for sure. The docs released in late 2017 assert that the Soviets had evidence that Johnson was involved in Kennedy's assassination. Phillip Nelson does a good job revealing Johnson's character here and here.
Guy Banister was a former FBI employee, a superintendent of the New Orleans police department, and a private investigator. He is another fringe player whose connections have never quite been fully explored, probably with good reason. Clearly Jim Garrison thought he was more than a fringe player.
Tippit was an 11-year veteran of the Dallas police department who was supposedly shot and killed by Oswald while questioning him. There are conflicting opinions on this matter, however. Recently-released documents show that an FBI informant identified Tippit as the man who killed JFK.
George de Mohrenschildt
Abraham Zapruder is one of the most famous characters from the JFK assassination. He's the Dallas dressmaker who filmed the most famous event in American history, and knew Kennedy was dead when he filmed the fatal shot.
Earl Warren was the 30th Governor of California and the 14th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He was also appointed to serve as the Chair of the Warren Commission, formed to investigate the assasination of John F. Kennedy.
George de Mohrenschildt is another mystery man in the JFK saga who, nevertheless, is tied to both Poppy Bush and Oswald, and who appears throughout the JFK files. He was writing about his relationship with Oswald when he died, supposedly by suicide. The jury is out on that.
More About the Medical Evidence
More Than Incompetence is Involved Here
Perhaps nothing is more compelling in this whole morass than the medical evidence. We already stated earlier on this page that one pathologist has testified under oath that the team of doctors working on JFK at Parkland Hospital were prevented from dissecting the president's neck and back wounds. Dissection would have determined both the trajectory of the bullets and the number of shooters involved in the assassination. That is clearly information that is never intended to be revealed.
the investigation has been marked by "missing" evidence, such as key autopsy photos, Kennedy's brain, and a skull fragment that would have helped determine the trajectory of the fatal bullet. Adding to the problem, Dr. James Humes made the decision to burn all his notes and preliminary reports from the autopsy.
The one thing that seems to be consistent is that Kennedy's death is the result of four wounds: A wound in the president's back (or the back of the neck, as some refer to it), a wound in the throat, a wound in the right-rear of the skull, and a fourth wound on the right side of the skull. Although evidence was presented for a fifth entrance wound in the president's left temple, this has been discounted. This document talks about those four wounds, and it also recounts eyewitness descriptions of JFK's wounds as they recall them.
Several health care professionals have come forward, like trauma nurse Phyllis Hall, who remembers being in Trauma One that day even though she was originally not supposed to be there. She also recalls that Kennedy had a gaping wound in his head that everyone in the room seemed to be missing. Hall said there was massive brain damage and loss of blood, and she knew the president was DOA.
Nurse Phyllis Hall had a lot of experience dealing with gunshot wounds during her career. She also recalls seeing a bullet like about an
inch and a half long lodged between Kennedy's ear and shoulder. The bullet was undamaged, but it was a type of bullet that she had
never seen before. She is sure that it was never presented as evidence and has no idea where it went.
One other baffling mystery is why Rear Admiral George G. Burkley, Kennedy's doctor, was not allowed to participate in any of the five investigations into the assassination. There is proof that he wanted to participate, but the evidence he wanted to give was not what
the powers-that-be wanted made public. This includes reference to yet another bullet found in the limousine by Captain James Young.
Is it similar to the bullet found by Phyllis Hall? Is it the same bullet?
This crime was the assassination of a democratically-elected president in broad daylight. No stone should have been left unturned.
The consensus is that this is the absolute best document for referencing the inconsistencies and cover-ups in the medical evidence.

Douglas P. Horne
Unraveling the Medical Evidence Issues
Douglas P. Horne served on the Assassinations Records Review Board (AARB) from August 1995 to September 1998. He truly has a passion for unraveling the mysteries and cover-ups surrounding the medical evidence.
According to Horne, the evidence available from the Kennedy assassination would not pass muster in a court of law. For example, the extant autopsy report in the National Archives is the third version of the autopsy. The notes and drafts from the first autopsy were burned by Dr. James J. Humes in his fireplace on November 24, 1963. He testified to this fact under oath to the AARB.
After 13 years of research and writing, Horne has produced a five-volume body of work of the evidence reviewed by the AARB. Frankly, he has made more than a compelling case for a conspiracy involving multiple shooters.
Because the material is not an "easy" read, Horne has also made a YouTube series (see below).
The Warren Commission
More About Covering Political Consequences
Than Unveiling the Truth
When Lee Harvey Oswald was murdered by Jack Ruby on November 24, 1963, it became necessary to create an investigative panel to help tamp down the notion that Kennedy's assassination was part of a "conspiracy."
The President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, informally known as the Warren Commission (because Chief Justice Earl Warren was named the commissioner), was established by LBJ via Executive Order on November 29, 1963.
From the beginning, it was clear that the commission was more about preventing the political consequences that might be caused by revealing the truth, rather than being about pursuit of the truth itself. It was pre-ordained that the goal was to uphold the official story that both Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby acted alone. Several members were reluctant to serve because they believed the commission would cause controversy rather than eliminate it, and it certainly did accomplish that.
From the beginning, it was fraught with activities that would ensure that the official narrative would be protected.
Future presdent, Gerald R. Ford, acted as an "informant" for J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. Among Ford's revelations to the FBI was the fact
that two members, mot likely Hale Boggs and Richard Russell, were unconvinced that Kennedy was shot from the Texas School Book Depository.
While Russell didn't like Earl Warren, the Kennedys considered him a friend. This may have prevented him from carrying out his duties. For example, he withheld the autopsy photos from the commission because they were too disturbing. He also blocked interviews with people Oswald may have known in Mexico, and tried to block an interview with the First Lady because he didn't want to invade her privacy.
Both the CIA and the FBI had Oswald under surveillance in the months before the assassination, yet both agencies played down any connection they may have had to Oswald. Hale Boggs later said that J. Edgar Hoover "lied his eyes out" to the Commission. The CIA also had Oswald under watchful eye when he took a trip to Mexico in 1963 and visited both the Cuban and Soviet embassies.
In its 888-page report, the Commission postulated the many ways
Oswald may have been able to kill Kennedy, but offered no real motive
for his actions. Again, the commission painted Oswald as a loner whose
life was marked by failure and disappointment.
Privately, both Lyndon Johnson and the Kennedy family disagreed with
the findings of the Warren Commission. Senator Russell signed the
report despite the fact that he could not rule out a conspiracy, while
Hale Boggs doubted the "single bullet theory."
“The Warren Commission report is sheer nonsense."

The Warren Report is a Whitewash
The Official Narrative Must Be Protected
The Warren Commission and its resulting 800+-page tome was created to ensure that Lee Harvey Oswald's position as the "lone" gunman in the Kennedy assassination be maintained. It was also created to continue the narrative that Jack Ruby was a grieving citizen who acted alone out of despair over Kennedy's death when he gunned down Oswald.
Hours could be spent listing all of the holes, inconsistencies and omissions in the Warren Report. Instead, however, I will send you here to this fantastic, detailed assessment.
In addition, a member of the Warren Commission investigative staff itself, Charles Shaffer, stated that there was probably a conspiracy.
The House Select Committee on Assassinations
The HSCA investigation into Kennedy's assassination happened nearly a decade and a half (1976-1978) after the Warren Report was released. Its conclusion was different, citing that JFK was likely killed as the result of a conspiracy, but fell short of identifying the players. The HSCA based this largely on acoustical evidence.
Of course, the panel cited the possible involvement of the Cuban and Soviet governments, but exonerated the CIA, FBI, and organized crime.
Volume XI of the HSCA's Appendices contains staff reports on the Warren Commission and its relationship with federal intelligence agencies, which withheld important information from the Commission, as well as reports on the planning for the Texas trip and an investigation conducted by the U.S. military.
The Garrison Investigation
A Valiant Attempt
The Jim Garrison Investigation
In late 1966, New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison opened an investigation into the assassination of John F. Kennedy with relation to several unsavory New Orleans characters. Although he tried hard to downplay this investigation, the NOLA reporters sniffed out the story and all hell broke loose. The investigation resulted in a media frenzy and drew national attention to the issue once again.
Garrison's target was a gentleman named Clay Shaw, a local New Orleans businessman. He was charged with conspiring to kill JFK. The case didn't go to trial until 1969, providing plenty of time for bad press and for painting Garrison as an opportunist and, alternatively, as a lunatic and "conspiracy theorist." Ultimately, Clay Shaw was acquitted.
One thing became very apparent, however. The powers-that-be in Washington were very nervous about what the Garrison investigation might unearth. The character assassination on Garrison was fierce.
Needless to say, Garrison had his critics, but he also had his supporters and Joan Mellen, Temple University professor, was one of them. She's the author of twenty-two books, including "A Farewell To Justice," "Our Man In Haiti" and "The Great Game in Cuba," which explore the history of the Central Intelligence Agency and its role in the planning and cover-up of the Kennedy assassination.
The History Matters site offers documents from the Garrison investigation, including the transcripts of the Clay Shaw trial, and the Orleans Parish grand jury proceedings.
