THE GENESIS OF REVELATIONS
MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
I find it odd that when I first started my radio show, I avoided talking about the Kennedy assassination. At the time, there were documents that were sealed, stories that were told, and tabloids that would capitalize on the possibility Kennedy faked his death or he didn’t die.
Kennedy shared tabloid status with Bigfoot and Elvis. However, now that I am older, I have become more interested in the case and as history time and again repeats itself in television news specials about the case, the mainstream media is aiming at trying to extinguish any and all conspiracy theories about what happened the day he was failed my an assassin’s bullet.
As we lift the curtain on history and if we were paying attention in school, we know that on November 22, 1963, shortly after noon, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated as he rode in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, Texas. It’s has now been 53 years since the assassination.
Last year, there was a genesis of revelation as the CIA quietly declassified a report showing that former CIA director John McCone was complicit in withholding information regarding the assassination – this in fact, makes the Kennedy case a de facto conspiracy.
Although there are plenty of irrational JFK assassination conspiracy theories, it is quite rational to conclude that a conspiracy of some sort took place. This rational belief should be compared not with superstitious beliefs, but with other rational beliefs.
According to a report provided by Politico, McCone, who died in 1991, was at the heart of a CIA “benign cover-up” intended to keep the Warren Commission focused on what the Agency believed at the time was the ‘best truth’ which was the lone wolf answer that is always given when organized intelligence operations muddy the waters of important events carried out by clandestine entities.
History books undaunted continue to say that Lee Harvey Oswald, with some vague motives, acted alone in killing John Kennedy.
However, history books will not reveal that the most important information withheld by the CIA was the existence, for years, of CIA plots to assassinate Castro, some of which put the CIA in cahoots with the Mafia.
Without this information, the commission never even knew to ask the question of whether Oswald had accomplices in Cuba or elsewhere who wanted Kennedy dead in retaliation for the Castro plots.
The question is, how was this information considered benign by the CIA? Downplaying its significance is just another proof of a cover-up.
It was a cover-up that halted any further investigation into Oswald and his potential ties to Cuba and any of his possible connections or accomplices.
Another revelation is that the report indicates the CIA was actually in communication with Oswald before the assassination, and that the CIA had been secretly monitoring his mail. This was highly illegal.
I promise you that the media will avoid talking about this because ever since the 50th anniversary, they have been reporting the sanitized version of the case in order to protect those fossils in government who know the truth.
I don’t think it surprises anyone that the majority of the American people who still care about the Kennedy story are willing to reject the media’s dominant interpretation of the JFK assassination.
It is yet another example of how the media narrative is not an objective source of information when it comes to reporting or even revealing information about established power.
The way the media handles the case in their retrospectives makes the government look pristine and perfect; that the official story has no flaws or that any mistakes were made by the Warren Commission in their findings.
In a case as complex as the JFK assassination, there would have to be mistakes but of course all reports today sound like they are written from some official at The Pentagon that still thinks the people are stupid.
It is easy to point to instances in which the Warren Commission either overlooked an important witness or misinterpreted an item of physical evidence and yet on our televisions today we hear the infallible word of the talking heads that will say anything in order to make history part of some agenda to cover up criminality in government.
The report provided by the Warren Commission gives the impression that no suspect other than Oswald was seriously considered. This impression was confirmed when transcripts of the Commission’s executive sessions and other internal documents were made public several years later. Oswald was the only suspect, and his guilt was assumed even before the Commission had begun to assemble any evidence.
However, there are so many reasons why this is highly unlikely, first of all Oswald had no credible motive to kill Kennedy. We know that more than three shots were fired and that they were fired from more than one location. The rifle that was found on the sixth floor of the book depository was found to be inaccurate and unreliable and it was reported that Oswald was not a goof enough marksman. Test had found that Oswald did not fire a rifle on the day of the assassination and a lot of the evidence against him was manufactured after the event.
Under President Eisenhower, the CIA had instigated a series of assassination attempts against Fidel Castro, using mobsters and anti–Castro Cubans. The policy continued under President Kennedy. Indeed, one such plot was in progress on the day of Kennedy’s own assassination. It has been suggested that Castro, who was well aware of the plots, took revenge by turning a set of assassins back on Kennedy.
In 1975 John Roselli, a mob boss from Las Vegas testified at the Church Committee, chaired by Senator Frank Church (officially, the “U.S. Select Committee to Study Government Operations with respect to Intelligence Activities”) that the Mob and the CIA together had attempted to kill Castro during the early 1960s.
Roselli claimed the CIA hit team had been turned against Kennedy.
In 1976, the Committee recalled Roselli to testify again, but he never made it. He left his home in Florida to play golf and never arrived at the golf course. His busted body was found floating in a drum, and the hit was blamed on Santos Trafficante.
In a September 1976 interview with Jack Anderson just before his murder, Roselli stated: “When Oswald was picked up, the underworld conspirators feared he would crack and disclose information that might lead to them. This almost certainly would have brought a massive U.S. crackdown on the Mafia. So Jack Ruby was ordered to eliminate Oswald.”
Historian Michael Kurtz stated: “I believe that Fidel Castro ordered the assassination of President Kennedy in retaliation for the repeated assassination attempts against his own life during the Kennedy administration. To repeat what Lyndon Johnson told Howard K. Smith and Joseph A. Califano, “Kennedy was trying to get Castro, but Castro got him first.”
However, it is highly doubtful that Castro had anything to do with the assassination but of course, there is a lot of evidence to support both Mob and anti Castro assassins involved in the plot to kill Kennedy.
Allen W. Dulles, the director of the CIA, established Operation 40 after a confidential memorandum from Colonel J. C. King, chief of CIA’s Western Hemisphere Division. It obtained its name because originally there were 40 agents involved, mainly Cuban exiles. It was approved by President Dwight D. Eisenhower and was presided over by Vice-President Richard Nixon.
George Herbert Walker Bush was asked to cooperate in funding the group. The man assigned to him for his new mission was Féliz Rodríguez. This included finding private funding as a result of pressure from American corporations which had suffered at the hands of Fidel Castro.
It seems that members of Operation 40, originally recruited to remove Fidel Castro, had been redirected to kill Kennedy. That someone had paid this team of assassins to kill the president of the United States as part of a freelance operation. This is not such a far-fetched idea when you consider that in 1959 Richard Nixon was approaching oilmen like George Walker Bush and Jack Crichton to help fund Operation 40.
Frank Sturgis claimed that “this assassination group, Operation 40 would upon orders, naturally, assassinate either members of the military or the political parties of the foreign country that you were going to infiltrate, and if necessary some of your own members who were suspected of being foreign agents.”
Four US presidents were either involved or had knowledge of “Operation 40,” which were all connected to The Watergate break in, the Bay of Pigs, and other known “false flag” operations headed by Richard Nixon.
It is very possible, if not probable, that the missing 18 minutes of the Watergate tape recorded on 6/20/72 are of Nixon conversing with his Chief of Staff, H. R. Haldeman and making explicit references to the CIA’s role in the JFK assassination and the FBI’s role in covering that crime up. It is almost certain that Haldeman destroyed the notes of that 18 minute time period that he took during that 79 minute meeting with Nixon.
Howard Baker once asked Nixon, “What do you know about the Kennedy assassination?” Nixon replied “You don’t want to know.”
There are many Americans that really do want to know.
Richard Nixon resigned the presidency on August 9th, 1974. CFR and Warren commission member Gerald Ford, who was very close to both the FBI and the CIA, assumed the presidency. Ford was also a critical player for the JFK assassination cover-up, along with former CIA director Allen Dulles and John J. McCloy, the chairman of the CFR from 1953 to 1970. Revisionist history now points to a role of US intelligence in manipulating the Watergate scandal to force the resignation of Nixon. It looks as if they were afraid that he would spill the beans on the JFK assassination.
Gerald Ford’s choice for Vice President came down to two candidates Nelson Rockefeller and George Herbert Walker Bush, two men with very deep CIA connections.
George Herbert Walker Bush, who came very close to being appointed Vice President by Ford in 1974, became the CIA director from 1976 to 1977. George Herbert Walker Bush was allegedly brought in because the former CIA director William Colby was dangerously revealing too much of the Agency’s dirty secrets. In 1977 Carter, not trusting Bush, forced his resignation as CIA director. Between 1977 and 1979, Bush became the director of the Council on Foreign Relations foreign policy organization. The CFR has often acted as a propaganda arm of U.S. intelligence.
I feel in some ways that the staying power of Kennedy’s “Camelot” is waning and the only reason for the retrospective is out of frustration that the truth about the case has still been kept under wraps, even after it was promised that after a generation that the files would be opened.
It is not surprising they haven’t and it is not so surprising that the mainstream narrative has hijacked the possibility of conspiracy against a president and has made it a homogenized exercise in watering down the reality that what happened in 1963 was most definitely an organized coup to change the direction of the United States.
To younger generations, the Kennedy legacy is one of history and not of experience. Imagine a time in history in which you have experienced, but that generations after you have the same interest in it as they would the Lincoln assassination. Even then, that type of history is a subject of a required history essay for a good grade.
As a follower of conspiratorial history, I can say that once again the mainstream media has failed to capture the controversy that John F. Kennedy’s murder generates.
Names, places and ideas are lost in the accepted history and the conspiracy history is equally forgotten.
