Newly released JFK assassination files tell old story: Like Earhart, only goal is to protect sacred cow

From the moment I saw the Oct. 21 New York Times story announcing that President Donald Trump had ordered the release of the last declassified JFK assassination files, I smelled an old rat, whose familiar stench has permeated the Earhart disappearance for nearly 80 years.  I’m no expert on the Kennedy case, and though I won’t advocate any specific scenario that contradicts the official line here, I will certainly assert with confidence that the infamous Warren Commission Report could well be the most dishonest document in U.S. government history.  

With 30 years of focus on the Earhart travesty, however, I’m quite familiar with the phony 1967 Navy release of the “remaining” Earhart files.  It’s transparently obvious that the current drill is more of the same, another huge disinformation operation, this time on a scale meant to permanently stifle the predictable complaints of the hated “conspiracy theorists,” who won’t be pleased with what they find in the Kennedy documents — or more accurately, what they won’t find

Ironically, it was President John F. Kennedy who allowed Fred Goerner and Ross Game to view top-secret Earhart files in Washington in 1963, according to Game, files that chronicled the abandonment and betrayal of Amelia Earhart on Japanese-controlled Saipan by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937.  For a detailed discussion of the 1967 Earhart files fiasco, as well as Goerner’s role in exposing the corruption and dishonesty that has plagued the Earhart case from day one, see pages 259-261 and 271-275 of  Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last.

Even the New York Times, in its Oct. 21 announcement, didn’t bother to pretend that the forthcoming documents would shed any new light on what most informed Americans are convinced was a complex conspiracy to kill the president:

In a statement to reporters, the White House left open the possibility that Mr. Trump might halt the release of some documents. “The president believes that these documents should be made available in the interests of full transparency unless agencies provide a compelling and clear national security or law enforcement justification otherwise,” the statement said. It is not known what revelations might be contained in the unreleased documents, though researchers and authors of books about Kennedy say they do not expect any bombshells that significantly alter the official narrative of the assassination — that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in Dallas — delivered in 1964 by the Warren Commission.

As expected, Fox News reported Oct. 27, that “Just before the release Thursday, Trump wrote in a memorandum that he had ‘no choice’ but to agree to requests from the CIA and FBI to keep thousands of documents secret because of the possibility that releasing the information could still harm national security.” In fact, the only security that those who control the Kennedy files care about is their own, anyone still living who could be connected to the Kenney hit, and their families, of course — a small battalion of criminals — or a large nest of vipers.  The fox not only watches the henhouse these days, he owns it.

All manner of stories proliferate, but they all have one thing in common: They offer nothing but fluff, harmless innuendo and distraction designed to titillate and entertain, but most of all, their purpose is to even more convincingly convict —  if only in the eyes of the most ignorant — Lee Harvey Oswald, the “Communist nut,” the “lone wolf,” as the lunatic who brought off the most incredible marksmanship feat in world history from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, killing JFK and practically blowing his entire head off in the process.  No point in linking to these countless stories here, as they’re almost impossible to avoid. Take your pick.

An allegedly doctored photo of Lee Harvey Oswald (note his right arm), the alleged lone assassin of President John F. Kennedy, graces the cover of Life magazine’s Feb. 21, 1964 edition. The cutline reads: “LEE OSWALD, with the weapons he used to kill President Kennedy and Officer Tippit.”

Most of age can recall our exactly locations when we heard the news.  I was in an eighth-grade classroom at St. Marks School in Adelphi, Md., when the announcement came over the loudspeaker, delivered by the school’s autocratic principal, a Catholic nun named Mother Jerome.  For a healthy, sports-addled 13-year-old without any political education or compass, it was just another exciting development in a place far away. 

Who could have dreamed that Kennedy’s death would usher in the whole horrendous panoply of the 20th century’s remaining decades?  Beginning with the Vietnam War, a newly insatiable political and cultural liberalism gave us LBJ’s Great Society, the world’s biggest welfare state and the attack on the family; Woodstock, the hippie movement, the drug plague and the phony War on Drugs; the sexual revolution, the normalization and glorification of homosexuality, and the current transgender abomination; the April 4 and June 5, 1968 assassinations of  Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy by the same malevolent forces responsible for JFK’s slaughter; the lie of political correctness; radical feminism; Roe v. Wade (1973) and the Culture of Death, with 56.5 million Americans murdered in the womb as of 2013; the pornography explosion; HIV and the AIDS epidemic; affirmative action, race quotas and reverse discrimination that have yet to be addressed; left-wing public education’s degenerate emphasis on atheism, secular humanism and so-called “social activism,” resulting in a national pandemic of illiteracy; the eight-year Clinton blight; and the continued degradation and downward trajectory of American society into the 21st century.

We can’t begin to know how different things would have been had JFK lived; many who possess a basic understanding of history point to the assassination as the day that true evil took over in the halls of our government.  It’s hard to imagine an America without the aforementioned social, political and economic disasters that have so largely defined the past 50 years, but it’s equally difficult to doubt that our world today wouldn’t be better for most of us had JFK lived.

We know that Kennedy wanted to get the United States out of Vietnam, and the billions it would have cost corporate America was enough motivation for certain establishment wolves to take him out.  In his Jan. 1, 1961 farewell speech, JFK’s predecessor, World War II hero Dwight D. Eisenhower, suggested that something dire might be looming.  “In the councils of government,” Eisenhower famously said, “we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”

For those who want to know more about what happened at Dealey Plaza on Nov. 22, 1963, I asked an expert on American history, Dave Martin ( for his top book recommendations.  “There’s a lot of great work out there on the JFK assassination,” Martin told me in a recent email.  “You might start by reading my 50th anniversary article.  Phil Nelson’s two books [LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination and LBJ: From Mastermind to “The Colossus] on LBJ’s involvement are hard to top.  Sylvia Meagher’s early analysis of the Warren Commission Report, Accessories After the Fact has not been matched through all the years that have passed.  She really exposes the FBI for the cover-up artists that they are.  Mark Lane’s Rush To Judgment is also still worth reading. . . . You could also do a lot worse than just reading my other various articles on the subject.

America’s sacred cows don’t come any bigger than the JFK hit — but the truth about the Earhart disappearance is close — and both of these sacred cows will be protected at all costs.  The only certainty is that nothing significant will ever be found in these or any released documents related to the Kennedy assassination or the loss of Amelia Earhart. 

After the smoke and BS clears, the hapless patsy Lee Harvey Oswald will again be convicted and certified as the lone shooter, per the mendacious Warren Commission whitewash, and this sacred cow will be preserved into perpetuity.  Donald Trump can’t or won’t expose the deep state’s refusal to reveal how LBJ, the CIA and others murdered JFK.  They will never come clean, just as they will never admit the truth about poor Amelia and Fred Noonan.

  1. An apt comparison, Mike. As you said, anyone over 45 likely remembers the exact moments when that news came across. I was sitting in Latin class in junior high school in Dallas, TX, when the principal announced the President had been shot. Everyone was herded into the huge auditorium where we waited to hear the devastating outcome of the shooting. In the last several years, I have read way more than a few books and seen scads of documentaries and movies on the topic. Hearing that all the buried docs are still off limits because of national security is hardly surprising but definitely a disappointment. I agree with you, anything of true value (“telling”) is either long converted to ashes or secreted like a serial killer’s souvenirs in a personal collection.

  2. You nailed it again, Mike. You are informed enough to see the common thread, something which most / many people refuse to see, namely, the connection during the 26 years between the “Establishment-complex” of 1937 and that of 1963. Deceit and Destruction.

  3. I, too, believe that the gov’t. will not release all the documents on the JFK assassination. There may be high-level governmental US officials or politicians still alive who were either involved, knew about it, or helped to cover it up. They will most likely not release new information in order to protect those people. I wish that Pres. Trump would release US governmental documents on Amelia Earhart, too. Even though there’s probably no one alive today involved in the 1937 (80 years ago) cover-up of what happened to AE on her around-the-world flight, there may be an Executive Order that was put out by FDR to keep those documents secret and protect his legacy. I hope Pres. Trump releases the secret documents on Amelia Earhart while he is president. He may be our best chance to get them released. I think any sitting president could issue a new Executive Order to override FDR’s Executive Order (assuming one exists). It’s just amazing that the information on AE has been covered-up all these years, and no president has been willing to release them. I met a retired navy man once who said that everyone in the navy knew what had happened to AE; that she had been killed in Saipan, and had not crashed and died in the ocean.

  4. I remember where I was, too, when I heard that JFK had been assassinated. I was in Spanish class in junior high school when the principal came on the loudspeaker and announced it. I had overheard a couple of girls talking at lunch time that the president had been shot, and I thought, “Yeah, sure. They’re just making that up to get a reaction out of everybody, and then have a good laugh later that anyone would believe that.” But then the principal came on when classes started after lunch, to announce to everyone what had happened. My parents did not vote for him, but I did feel it was unfair for someone to take his life. I was also shocked that it happened in Dallas. The people I knew in Dallas would never consider doing such a horrible thing.

  5. I was only a one, month old baby when this all happened; and so I have no memory of any of this. I began reading about the Kennedy Assassination, back in the early 1980’s – David Lifton’s book – BEST EVIDENCE. Even then, I could see it was impossible for Lee Harvey Oswald to have shot the President. It didn’t add up. It didn’t make any sense at all to me.

    A young married man, father of two small baby girls, just doesn’t go out and shoot the President of the United States nor a Police Officer, for no apparent reason. He has a wife to support and children to raise. The furthest thing from his mind, would not to be killing the President.

    James Files has admitted and confessed to being the assassin on the grassy knoll. He was guided by none other than Charles Nicoletti.

    As Mike has pointed out, to so many of us, who follow his blog; DiSiNfOrMaTiOn is ALIVE & WELL. Our MEDIA/GOVERNMENT is more CoRrUpT than we know…

    *GREAT PIECE – Mike
