I’m obviously gonna get a lot of flack over using the word “humor” in relation to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy back in 1963 in Dallas, Texas.
The humor I’m referring to is that some 5o years later there are a gazillion, if not more, unanswered questions about the events of November 22nd, 1963 in Dealey Plaza. Yet….yes yet, there are those, such as the one guy I’m going to single out today that STILL believe the entire Warren Commission report.
However, those of us that do not believe that report outnumber the ones that do. (see above graph)
So this guy from St. Helena, California, by far not a dummy, in fact he’s an attorney, yet I firmly believe his light bulb is below a 25 watt power range.
Do I soundith a bit pissed off? If you replied, “yes,” you’d be correct. Now I’m no attorney nor an “expert” on the assassination, BUT I DO know there are way too many loose ends to EVER conclude that the Warren Commission was correct or that Lee Harvey Oswald was a “lone nut.”
(Picture caption) For 51 years, Bruce Miroglio, a lawyer and third-generation St. Helenan, has been researching, investigating and analyzing President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, trying to get the bigger picture of that fateful day.
First, an excerpt from a story in the “St. Helena Star” by Cynthia Sweeney (11/10/14) which highlights a part of “expert” Bruce Miroglio’s comments regarding the assassination. (MY comments are in parenthesis after each important paragraph)
“Following the president’s death, and to this day, JFK aficionados fall into two camps, the conspiracy theorists and those who believe in the lone nut theory, the nut being Lee Harvey Oswald.
Theories erupted around Vice President Lyndon Johnson and why he was sworn in as president so quickly after the assassination. A later-revealed government cover-up of information about aggressive acts in Cuba also raised questions. And the “magic bullet” theory questioned how one bullet could have struck Kennedy and Connally.
Miroglio, a member of the lone nut camp, said much of what has been written about the event contributes nothing to finding the truth about what happened that day. The subject became a cottage industry for authors trying to tell their side of it.
“My experience is, it’s an effort to make money for the author and doesn’t offer new information,” said Miroglio. “It all gives rise to people who want to believe in a conspiracy. It adds to the interest.”
(Yes Bruce. As we all know the only reason a trillion books have been written about the assassination is to make money. Prominent researchers such as Sylvia Meagher, (“Accessories After the Fact,” 1967) Josiah Thompson, (Six Seconds in Dallas,” 1967) and Anthony Summers, (Conspiracy,” 1980) to name a few, just gave all of us unanswered questions to ponder about the assassination simply to make a buck)
“Miroglio also expressed frustration at director Oliver Stone’s 1991 film “JFK,” which he said took a true story and fictionalized it, fueling the conspiracy theory rhetoric.”
(Yep, Oliver Stone’s movie did not have one scintilla of factual information in it. I’m assuming the Zapruder film in Stone’s movie was fictionalized as well. Bruce….ya think?)
(oh yeah…..while we’re at it, check out New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison on “Wikipedia” and focus on the part where he said a suspect in the assassination Clay Shaw worked for the CIA but Shaw denied it.
(Garrison brought Shaw to trial for conspiracy to assassinate the President)
(Um, did I mention he did work for the CIA as later proved…oops…..I’m clouding this “fictionalized” stuff Bruce talks about with damn facts)
“In 1964, the Warren Commission’s official government report on the assassination concluded that Oswald acted alone. In conversation, Miroglio is given to quoting various exhibits within the report off the top of his head to explain and support that position. Oswald may not have had a political agenda, although he was a Marxist, he was just looking for attention, Miroglio said. Just months before, he allegedly tried to assassinate Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker”
(Funny Bruce, you never mentioned the “House Select Committee on Assassinations” report in the 70’s that concluded that JFK may have been assassinated as the result of a conspiracy. Oops)(below: excerpt from the “Summary & Findings” of the above report)
- Scientific acoustical evidence establishes a high probability that two gunmen fired at President John F. Kennedy. Other scientific evidence does not preclude the possibility of two gunmen firing at the President. Scientific evidence negates some specific conspiracy allegations.
- The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The committee is unable to identify the other gunman or the extent of the conspiracy.
- Hey Bruce…..did ya read that report?
So ya see folks, this is “humor” to me. Humorous that in this day and age there are still people out there who refuse to believe that more than one person was involved in the assassination. Yet we all believe the government spies on us and politicians lie Go figure. We all know THAT’S not true.
Along with Nazi’s being brought to the U.S. after the war so we could use them. AND….some of them even collected Social Security checks too. Nah…..that’s a conspiracy lie too.
I offered a challenge to Bruce to answer a series of questions regarding the assassination that have never been answered. I’ll ask the same of any of my blog readers. Answer any question I pose to you with “facts” and if you can answer them “factually” (all of them) “I’ll” believe the Warren Commission was right.
Here’s one to wet your whistle for starters. Look up Roscoe White, do some research on him, then go to your library and get Robert J. Groden’s book, “The Killing of A President,” turn to page 57, observe the crowd, then turn to page 200 & 201, and study the photo Might want to research this guy as well, James Files.
Ok….enough bait. Do your research and we’ll spar.
Please…….do not bring any weapons.
A final note for anyone wishing to cloud up their minds with stupid facts. The book I mentioned, “The Killing of a President” by Robert J. Groden, by far is, in my own humble opinion, one of the most definitive books on the assassination with pages and pages of photographs, documents and stats you’ll ever need to cloud up your mind with facts. Which we all know tend to cloud up the issue.
(UPDATES) I ‘m always amazed by the idiots (Internet trolls) who respond with inane comments and love to post their responses. So let’s begin with this first one from the Internet site “Sodahead” in response to the link I posted there. More to follow….I’m sure:
