2016 interview with President John F. Kennedy: who assassinated me and why, American public’s opportunity today to cause peace

Introduction: Of ~100 various film clips I show high school US History students, over the years their favorite with demand to see the entire documentary is Advanced Placement US History teacher John Hankey’s documentary, Dark Legacy. I’ve invested over 100 hours in research of the facts associated to causes for JFK’s assassination, and fully recommend Dark Legacy. I also fully recommend the works of Jim Fetzer (and here for several researchers’ presentations) and Jim Marrs on this subject. The evidence is overwhelming to prove US government assassination of President Kennedy in ~50 key areas. This evidence is even more abundant than the King family presented in their civil trial that found the US government guilty of Martin’s assassination.

Carl: Jack! Thanks for this interview!

JFK: Carl, it’s my pleasure.

Carl: I love how you people from Boston say my name!

JFK: (chuckle) And we from the East Coast enjoy the California accent and idioms as well… dude.

Carl: So: what would you like to discuss.

JFK: Three points. One: a brief history of my decision to leave what you call today a .01% insider position of power to serve humanity to an extent I saw as politically possible. Two: how that caused my assassination, and who did it. Three: the relevance of this history today for Americans’ choice of service to all humanity rather than a cabal of psychopaths.

Carl: Please proceed.

JFK: Point number one: my father worked his way into power to the extent he was fully aware of the planned 1929 stock market crash. Dad sold his stocks that summer, shorted the market as your current movie The Big Short shows, and made a fortune. My brothers and I grew-up in this kind of fierce and ruthless competition, with rewards of power, money, and women.

Carl: Thank you for your candor, Jack.

JFK: (smiles) I’m not running for office.

My dad learned from taking an ownership position in Hollywood along with an inside position on Wall Street the essentials of a positive image to cover any avarice in our business, political, and private lives. We used power and money without regard to ethics. This is the core of America’s problem today. My younger brothers and I decided to leave this self-destructive path when its future of a third world war became clear.

Carl: When did this become clear to you?

JFK: First, I confess that I eagerly participated in this lifestyle of criminal corruption, including the power of becoming president. I used money, charm, and deception for personal gain. I invite today’s .01% leaders today and their minions to reconsider their positions based on expected outcomes of their actions.

The toll of war became personal with deaths among my PT crew in 1943, along with my own serious injuries, followed a year later by my older brother, Joe Jr., killed in an explosion while developing airplanes flown with remote control.

I saw more and more of the dark use of military in CIA Cold War operations during my time in Congress and the Senate, interwoven with the dirty work of elections, including my own. With my father’s help with money, mafia, and Hollywood effects making my PT-109 story into war heroism, and thanks to election fraud in Chicago and Texas, I found myself President in 1960.

Among the deals my family and I made on this path, I agreed to a CIA Black Op invasion of Cuba. I declined to make this into anything more than a covert operation, and in combination with the Cuban Missile Crisis 16 months later, Bobby, Teddy, and I became absolutely convinced of the fascist element within our own government hell-bent on World War 3.

Carl: So what did you do?

JFK: I had CIA Director Allen Dulles resign, along with his Assistant Director Cabell and CIA Black Ops planner, Bissell. I swore to break the CIA into a thousand pieces, and put Black Ops under presidential control.

Just in the area of military control, I issued NSAM 263 to wind-down US military involvement in Vietnam. But by this time, the fascists connected to Prescott Bush had already planned my assassination. As you know, Prescott was a Nazi supporter, father of George Bush, Sr., and grandfather of W. and Jeb Bush. Bush already controlled Dick Nixon, and the fascists wanted him as president.

Carl: This seems to lead into your second point of the assassination.

JFK: Yes, and before we begin I’d like to make clear that these actions to slow American fascism, stop a world war of nuclear weapons, and resist domination over the presidency doesn’t make me a hero. The alternative of war was unacceptable, but what these fascists expected if Dick Nixon followed Ike as president.

Carl: Ok. Who killed you?

JFK: I was assassinated by CIA-military Black Ops. The best way to communicate the details is for the public to see them. I’ll make a few comments, and summarize. Here’s a 10-minute highlight version of Dark Legacy, then the full 103-minute documentary (Carl’s note: please consider watching at Hulu, and/or purchase at Apple or Amazon):

JFK: Among six teams of shooters in an emptied kill zone, CIA Assistant Director Cabell’s brother, Earle, Mayor of Dallas, helped plan my assassination and had a good view just three cars away. The Zapruder film was altered, with other films kept by the assassins for sadistic enjoyment. LBJ was going to be indicted the following week for graft and political murders (and here), so he was relieved and delighted the assassination succeeded. He used power similar to my own family. But he was gleeful over my death, as this telling photograph shows:

The presidential limo slowed to a crawl and then stopped until the assassination team executed a kill shot. Here’s a minute to show this:

I was hit by three bullets; two from the back and one from the front. I was hit first in the throat by a CIA dart gun that left an entrance wound of 3-5 mm; about 1/8th inch in diameter. The second hit was in my upper back from a low-powered rifle; the bullet stayed in my right lung. Of course, the military autopsy doctors were ordered to not examine the throat or back wounds because that would prove two different weapons fired from opposite directions.

Carl: So in typical Orwellian fashion, the only way the assassins could say they conducted an autopsy is to destroy its definition. You didn’t receive an autopsy.

And the only way they could kill you in a motorcade was to remove the two agents to literally protect your back at the rear handrails on the limo, and for the driver to do the opposite of his training and orders: upon hearing apparent gunshot to slow and stop the car until you were dead rather than accelerating to remove you from danger.

JFK: That is correct.

I was shot twice in the head: first from a low-powered rifle from behind, then almost instantly after from a high-powered gun that went through the hairline above and to the side of my right eye, and blew-out the back of my head.

The cover-up and propaganda teams employed willing media to tell their story. For example, consider this 3-minute video of Dan Rather lying that my head was thrown “violently forward” rather than the opposite direction that it did go: violently backward:

For this lie, Dan Rather was promoted as a “leading” journalist.

Carl: Jack, 12 years after your assassination, the Senate Church Commission disclosed CIA testimony that they employed over 400 operatives to lie in US media.

JFK: I am proud to have contributed through my death among the best evidence of media lying. That’s a strange thing to say, I know, but it’s true.

About 50 areas of crucial evidence overwhelmingly prove lies told and retold by corporate media and political “leadership” from both parties. And again, it’s easier to show this evidence than explain it. I don’t think any American can call him or herself a responsible citizen without being briefed on the evidence for 103 minutes, and to appreciate the Bush crime family is not only still protected, but running family members for president over 50 years later:

Carl: Thank you, Jack. As a high school teacher of history and government, I also encourage the public to view Dark Legacy. It’s my students’ favorite. Of ~100 movie/documentary clips I show, they always demand to see the whole documentary. I watch their faces: all of them are riveted.

JFK: Let’s conclude with my last point, and the reason to make this history clear: Americans today have the power to reveal and reverse this path of deadly lies, global war, and destruction.

The CIA semi-hidden wars have killed ~30 million human beings since the Second World War. A full 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men. These illegal US policies have war-murdered more than the Nazis, with all of the reasons told for current wars now exposed by US government agencies as known lies as they were told.

These covert wars are hidden in plain sight in your history texts, but are treason. Americans receive war and intentional, ongoing policy to poverty-murder millions of people every year. These are Crimes Against Humanity. Just the last 20 years, this lust for empire has killed over 400 million human beings; more than all wars in all human history.

Carl: Wow. Thank you, Jack. I don’t think anyone can make the case to reverse course any more clear.

JFK: (sadly smiling) I’ve had a lot of time to consider these talking points.

The fascists who killed me reversed my October, 1963 National Security Action Memo to conclude the Vietnam War. The killers wrote their rough draft for Lyndon the day before they killed me: November 21 (and here). Lyndon signed it to escalate Vietnam into a killing ground with far more bombs dropped on those small, poor nations than from all of WW2.

Lyndon signed NSAM 273 on Tuesday; I was assassinated on Friday afternoon, with my funeral concluding just after 3:30 PM on Monday.

Carl: Johnson’s priorities were clear: escalate war the day after your funeral, and with a document prepared the day before they killed you.

JFK: (nods with lips pursed) To conclude: Americans today have a clear and crucial choice: demand arrests of today’s war leaders to establish justice for crimes past and present, or be complicit in silence for more war, including upon their own families. Our past ever connects to our present: the Bush and Clinton families, along with a few dozen similar families, engage in ongoing war, destruction, and debt of annual millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted.

Lawful demand for arrests looks, hears, and feels like these 90 seconds from former US Marine Ken O’Keefe:

Carl: This seems to be a relatively simple test: do we care enough to recognize and demand lawful stop to Wars of Aggression? This action is informed by both world wars, by both my grandfathers who served in World War 1 beginning in the year you were born (1917), and World War 2 in which you served with my father, father-in-law, and only uncle.

JFK: This choice involves all our families, past, present, and future As I said at the UN in two minutes: “Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind.” We need a “peace race,” not an arms race.


JFK 1961 full press conference 19-minute “secret society” speech, in which he warns against government secrecy as a prelude to totalitarian government, yet speaks in the same language today of forever war on an ideology. This is likely in response to request US media not disclose discovered military leaks dangerous to national security after the Bay of Pigs disaster:

    In any case, Kennedy would not have known who shot him or why had he survived; only an immediate, honest, and thorough investigation would have done that.

    The whole Kennedy assassination thing is about gaming doubt, fear, and lack of closure.

    • Carl_Herman

      Really, Brockland, the whole “Kennedy assassination thing” is only about doubt, fear, and lack of closure?

      You don’t address the overwhelming evidence that elements within US government leadership killed JFK.

      Why is that? What purpose do you have to comment if you don’t address the facts of evidence?

      Are you speaking because you’re on the side of the game working for doubt, fear, and lack of closure on this episode of history on ongoing Wars of Aggression? And you wish to distract people from examining the evidence by labeling it as “macabre” rather than essential?

      Your life, your future you’re building and will richly deserve with your actions, pal.

      • Brockland A.T.

        How is it you really don’t get it when you seem to understand, or at least have memorized, so much? Recall the five stages of grief (Kubler-Ross model, 1969);


        1. Denial, 2. Anger, 3. Bargaining, 4. Depression, 5. Acceptance.

        Lets call the psyop analogy to stage 4. Depression, ‘Intimidation’.

        Stage 5. Acceptance of what is, is closure.

        Stage 5 is also the first stage of action. Preventing closure and locking the loop within the first four stages would be the most logical objective of the Kennedy Psyop.

        Kennedy’s assassination was turned into a psyop. The guilty bloodied hands have died of old age; their heirs to power cannot be prosecuted for a crime they did not commit, even if the Deep State as a cult of culture, sees fit to continue to brag about it.

        The solution from closure, obviously, is removal of the Deep State so it can’t play those annoying prevention-of-closure games.

        The facts and evidence aren’t being enacted upon in an official manner, blessed with learned scrutiny under strict rules of evidence. Everybody is left to ‘know’ the Deep State did it. Everybody ‘knows’ the Deep State isn’t being brought to justice. Some people are for this, some people are against it, some sit on the fence.

        Its only in the last five years, with the social media explosion, that people like yourself can truly escape the ‘conspiracy theorist’ meme and taken seriously by a wider audience.

        The history of the ‘conspiracy theory’ meme may go back to 1870, perhaps coincidentally, perhaps not, just five years after the controversial death of Abraham Lincoln. Although you won’t see that connection made anywhere in ‘debunker’ research.



        Notice how Blaskiewicz’s article debunking the idea that the CIA ‘invented’ the conspiracy theory meme, hangs on the word ‘invented’. Nothing he says, precludes the CIA didn’t take a workable model of ‘implausible speculation’ psychology right off the shelf. Rumour and innuendo are social tools older than the bible.

        However you call it, implausible speculation or conspiracy theory, its still basically the same system of mass psychology at work to devalue the facts and critical reasoning, with a little dose of intimidation.

        A good adversarial psyop against the truth is supposed to do that; play on uncertainty, wishful thinking, and lack of a sense closure save by drinking the official kool-aid and keeping it drunk.

        Trying to intimidate me, only invites wonder about your sincerity,
        because I’m calling the Kennedy Assassination what it is and what its become, a psyop, and calling the mechanisms at work so people can better deal with the battle for closure within themselves.

        Reacting to any perceived criticism as a zealot responding to an assault upon religious dogma, isn’t very helpful in convincing those on the fence to believe in the truth. Its first an emotional decision, then backfilled by facts and reason.

        Those who gaze too long into the eyes of the Deep State, might internalize stage four tactics to sustain a narrative turned into mindless dogma, frozen at stage four, while claiming to be leading to stage five, acceptance and action.

        What message will truly be delivered? Fear and intimidation of the impunity of the Deep State or inspired determination to resist where it counts most – the mind. The ability to think freely and clearly and only believe in the believable, as opposed to merely believing a source, which may not always be right, or worse, opportunistically abuse a reputation for veracity.

        The first two waves of Deep State awareness, in the 1960s, then the Internet revolution in the 1990s were decided in favour of intimidation, judging by the lack of political action for democratic accountability.

        The last wave of awareness, the social media revolution of the 2010s, is still up for grabs. The muted remembrance of Kennedy’s assassination in 2015 indicates the Deep State fears, the Kennedy assassination no longer intimidates resistance, but may be inspiring it.

        The Kennedy Assassination is a psyop that is failing. The People are more displeased than fearful. They can’t get the killers, but they can get the Deep State, though democracy and it mechanisms of public accountability.

        Kennedy will always be there, as long as Americans are American and are patriots, patiently awaiting his last laugh against forces he wished splintered into a thousand pieces and scattered into the winds.

        Call it the CIA; call it the Deep State, dancing the jig in manic defiance of a ghost forever upon their shoulders.

        Who calls the tune, A thousand pieces.


        • Carl_Herman

          Sorry, Bro: I like your subsequent comments. You might want to re-read your first one in light that we deal with propagandists constantly. I apologize for not understanding you.

          Yes, this was a Deep State move.

          • Brockland A.T.

            Oh, I see the problem. I’ll try to be more thorough with my explanations instead of assuming the reasoning is self-evident when it might not be.

    • diogenes

      The evidence suggests that JFK did know exactly who and what he was up against and what the stakes were. Read David Talbot’s Devils’ Chessboard for some of it. And don’t miss the superb book, JFK and The Unspeakable, by James W. Douglass, far the best book published so far on this question, which draws on 50 years of research and publications. It is definitive. If you haven’t read it, you need to before you think you have a grip on this subject.

      • Brockland A.T.

        Even if one were to concede this, you will notice that even knowing what he did, Kennedy acted within the law. His opponents had no such qualms.

        Kennedy had everything to lose; rule of law and his life, that his opponents had no qualms about destroying. He lost both. One interpretation of Kennedy’s actions would be that he was patiently gathering sound evidence and making careful but definitive moves to curb the Deep State, such as Executive Order 11110, cutting off the Fed. He was leery of assassination but not expecting to die, at least not enough to make a backup plan.

        The case has even been convincingly made that Oswald was a deep cover agent trying to protect Kennedy. However, there was no backup plan. By playing in the shadows, Kennedy and perhaps Oswald lost the protection of the light.


        Rule of law requires honest due process, which a surviving, able John Kennedy would have used to investigate then indict his enemies conclusively. Acting arbitrarily, as perhaps feels more natural today, is a two-edged sword wherein the Deep State has the advantage.

        Even if John Kennedy had survived and won like Andrew Jackson survived assassination attempts and won in his day, their cause was hostage to the inefficient majority-rule democratic system. Its a demonstrable social phenomenon of closed communities that lose a grip on reason and fair-mindedness.

        Some of us here are probably veterans of other forums, which we saw change from being places of intelligent discussion and become, not our cup of tea if we weren’t outright banned. Critical free-thinkers are almost always in the minority in most open forums; that’s even before they are informed critical free thinkers, which are even fewer in number.

        What would happen if the people behind Washington’s Blog, for example, became closed minded and partisan caterers to that demographic? Or if it was an uncontrolled democratic community where undemocratic people made a putsch? We posters that might object, could do nothing but watch from the sidelines as the foolish and ignorant take over unchallenged. However, we would have the greater community of blogs and forums to fall back upon.

        Truthout purposely censored John Pilger because they favoured Hillary. An isolated incident or calculated spending of social capital built up over time?


        Over time, persistent evil will prevail, and only needs to win its two-steps forward for every one, if ever, The People take back. Time roll back the shadows of American electoral politics a bit with proportional representation. Kennedy may be dead, but the nation he stood for isn’t, yet.

    Dwight Eisenhower on The Military Industrial Complex


    In 1957, Eisenhower authorized the establishment of NASA, which led to the space race. Eisenhower forced Israel, the UK, and France to end their invasion of Egypt during the Suez Crisis of 1956, while condemning the Soviet invasion of Hungary during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.

    In 1958, he sent 15,000 U.S. troops to Lebanon to prevent the pro-Western government from falling to a Nasser-inspired revolution. Near the end of his term, his efforts to set up a summit meeting with the Soviets collapsed because of the U-2 incident.[4] In his January 17, 1961 farewell address to the nation, Eisenhower expressed his concerns about the dangers of corporate control of Congress and massive military spending, especially deficit spending and government contracts to private military manufacturers, and coined the term “Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex”

    War Powers Act of 1941

    The War Powers Act of 1941, also known as the First War Powers Act, was an American emergency law that increased Federal power during World War II. The act was signed by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and put into law on December 18, 1941, less than two weeks after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The act was similar to the Departmental Reorganization Act of 1917 as it was signed shortly before the U.S. engaged in a large war and increased the powers of the president’s U.S. Executive Branch.

    The act gave the President enormous authority to execute World War II in an efficient manner. The president was authorized to reorganize the executive branch, independent government agencies, and government corporations for the war cause. With the act, the President was allowed to censor mail and other forms of communication between the United States and foreign countries. The act and all changes created by its power were to remain intact until six months after the end of the war at which time, the act would become defunct.

    Three months after passing the first, the Second War Powers Act was passed on March 27, 1942. This further strengthened the executive branch powers towards executing World War II. This act allowed the acquisition, under condemnation if necessary, of land for military or naval purposes. Some provisions of the Hatch Act of 1939 were also suspended which reduced naturalization standards foraliens within the U.S. Armed Forces. In addition, it created methods for war-related production contracting along with adjusting several other aspects of government affairs. The Second War Powers Act repealed the confidentiality of census data, allowing the FBI to use this information to round up Japanese-Americans.

    Under Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson retrospectively delegated his authority from the President under the War Powers Act of 1941 to Leslie Groves for the Manhattan Project. The authority, given in a memorandum to Groves dated April 17, 1944, was retrospective to September 1, 1942. The written delegation was only given in 1944 when Groves deputy Kenneth Nichols was about to sign a large contract with Du Pont, and it was found that he only had a low delegated authority, as Nichols’ higher authority for the Manhattan Project had only been given verbally by General Styer to his predecessor Colonel James C. Marshall.

    LBJ played a big role. Dismissing that seems like disinformation. Ask his lawyer Barr McLellan.

  • diogenes

    Thanks Carl, for both of these. There’s one issue that I wish JFK had thought to raise because it so very much concealed. His father Joseph Kennedy was strongly committed to peace and to keeping America out of another European world war. His efforts in this direction led to the early termination of his Ambassadorship to England. Both he and his son John, a college undergrad, became members of America First, a group of patriotic citizens, including also Herbert Hoover, who worked hard to keep America peaceful and neutral (and were viciously smeared for it as bigots and fascists etc.) Joseph Kennedy was a prominent figure in this movement and his advocacy for peace surely inspired his son John, who was especially close to him during this period. I think that Joseph Kennedy’s Catholicism had something to do with his passionate avowal of peace — Jesus was, after all the Man of Peace. Herbert Hoover’s America Betrayed (referenced in my Distribution of Wealth essays, is a good place to learn about this movement in a truthful realistic way, free of the smear campaign that continues to this day. So is the book also referenced there called America First.

    Charles Lindbergh, another prominent member, is particularly still targeted because he pointed out the totally obvious fact in a speech in Des Moines late in 1941, a few months before Pearl Harbor, that the three forces that were working hard to drive American into that war were the Roosevelt administration, the British, and the Jews. It wasn’t an “anti-semitic” comment, is was purely a statement of fact. But it is not presented that way by the smear campaign. It is one of those ironies of history, therefore, to learn that on the same date Chaim Weizmann, future first president of Israel and then a leading figure in the Zionist movement wrote Churchill a letter, extant in his archives in which he tells Churchill that if the British will back the Zionist project he and his compatriots will see to it that American enters this war just as they saw to it that America entered the last. I don’t know anything about the truth, or how much truth, there was in his latter claim, but to make it to Churchill he must have expected that Churchill would not regard it as ludicrous. Needless to say, Weizmann is note therefore branded and “anti-semite,” unlike Lindbergh, but the letter is not prominently mentioned in our histories.
