The term conspiracy theory is defined as a belief that powerful people or groups are responsible for events or situations due to secret plans that are illegal or harmful. There is many conspiracy theories that captivated the American people, but the most controversy conspiracy theory that leaves many unanswered questions for years is the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Friday of November 22, 1963, the 35th President of the United States, JFK, was shot at 12:30 PM while traveling in Dallas, Texas to appear for the next presidential campaign. Thousands of Americans whom was present at Dallas, Texas just witness the murder of the United States president. Many Americans believed that the United States government was behind the JFK assassination.
I think that Lee Harvey Oswald was framed by the government. If JFK was shot multiple times from different ways and 2 shots were shot at the exact same time how would Oswald be the only shooter? Also, Oswald was eating on the second floor when the police came in, The gun was on the 6th floor. If he were to be shooting that gun he would of had to shoot him, get down
After reading The Transition by Robert Caro, an article about the transition of power from President John Kennedy to Lyndon Johnson following Kennedy’s assassination, I was amazed at how Johnson was able to make the transition from Vice President to President effortless. From the moment that Johnson arrived at the hospital waiting to hear about the condition of the President, accounts from many White House staffers and secret service agents immediately noticed a change in the demeanor of Johnson. Homer Thornberry described Johnson to be “Very calm. All through the time he was just calm”. I was very surprised that Johnson was able to maintain a calm and collected demeanor, while having to make important decisions throughout the day.
If we go a few weeks back before the assassination occurred, evidence states that Oswald and Jack Ruby were seen at a nightclub two weeks before the president was assassinated. Could they have been planning their plot? I think that Oswald was somehow partnered with Jack Ruby for the assassination because facts also state that people had seen a couple of men disassembling a gun earlier that day. That could've been Oswald and Jack Ruby. Other evidence states that Oswald was in the School Book Depository caught with a two foot wide bag in his hand. The gun was three feet long. That explains why two men, that could've possibly been Oswald and Ruby, were disassembling a gun earlier so that they could fit the gun in the bag for Oswald or Ruby
John F. Kennedy, the 35th United States President, was assassinated on November 22, 1963 during a parade while he and his wife were visiting Dallas, Texas. The Warren Commission has concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald, a lone shooter, was the man who committed the crime. Over the years after Kennedy’s death, people have come up with other ideas of why and how this president died. One of many conspiracies was made by his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy, saying that Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson had something to do with it. She believed that he wanted to become the president so badly that he would kill to get it. In this conspiracy, it is said that Johnson hired two men to assassinate John F. Kennedy. At least one of the gunmen was supposedly waiting in the
Kennedy breaks down into three fundamental questions: who, why, and how? The historians don't necessarily fall into these categories based upon these questions. Instead, the historians argue the person(s) involvement in the shooting, how Kennedy was shot in Dealey Plaza, and the conspiracy stories about why he was shot. Two historians, David Corn and Max Holland, believe JFK was shot by a lone shooter and both focus mainly on why Oswald shot Kennedy. Thom Patterson has the belief structure that although Oswald was said to be the assassin, there isn't a doubt in his mind that the government or CIA didn't play their part in Kennedy's death. Although Oswald was a lone shooter, David also believes there's a plot involved in the president's death that is clear to the naked eye. "The Real Conspiracy Behind the JFK Assassination," was written by David Corn to present Americans with the real conspiracy behind JFK's assassination and to primarily focus on what brought the lone man to the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository to shoot the president. 2 David Corn's political story is being used in my paper as one of the many conspiracies people have came to believe and to present more creditable facts about what happened November 22,
A surprise occurred after the convicted Oswald was killed during a police transfer by a man named Jack Ruby. Later on, the Warren Commission, also known as chairman Supreme Court
At that point, he was shot, and Jackie shouted, "My God, he has been shot!"(Polidoro, Massimo) Is it me or is there more than I killer. Because Oswald shoot Kennedy from the top of a building while some witness say the killer was shooting from the street. This doesn’t make sense because there was nothing about a shoot on the street in the Warren Commission. Also the some witness blamed Jack Ruby. “She was convinced that this man was Jack Ruby, the club owner who, in three days, would kill Lee Harvey Oswald.” (Polidoro, Massimo) Could it be that Oswald bullet killed Kennedy but Jack wanted to do it so he later killed Oswald. Maybe they both planned it but Jack was angry at
Robert F. Kennedy developed his argument about Martin Luther 's King 's assassination by giving details about somethings Martin Luther King Jr wanted to do for people. One thing is that he didn 't put Martin Luther King 's real speech, but he did an excellent thing by informing those who didn 't know about Martin 's assassination. For example one of the things he wanted to change was that all black people should have the same rights as all white people. I agree with this because no one should be treated differently everyone should be at a equal place. He had a dream that he would change all this cruelty for the best!
At 11:35 A.M. Air Force One landed. Crowds had gathered at the landing site to show support for Kennedy’s re-election. Although this concerned the secret service the first family was unfazed. Mrs. Kennedy was given a dozen red roses and the first family preceded to shake hands and greet the crowd. At 11:35 the Kennedy’s along with Texas governor, John Connally, and his wife began the half hour drive through Dallas. President Kennedy ordered for the tops of the cars be down and for secret service to stay in the follow up car instead of running besides the Kennedys so that the people could see Jackie. The people spilled into the streets and the driver tried to separate the president from the people putting Jackie against the crowd. Hill ran
If Jack Ruby had not killed Lee Harvey Oswald there would not have been suspicions that others were involved. Ruby had no motive for the killing. One possible theory was that Fidel Castro was behind the assassination because he disagreed with JFK’s ideas about world peace. Many believed that Jack Ruby attempted to kill Fidel Castro. Another popular theory was that Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the shooting due to his hatred of the Kennedy’s and his desire to be president. (Thomas, Michael. "JFK Assassination And Coverup: New Evidence and Testimony Emerges." Infowars. Digital Millennium, 20 Nov. 2013.)
One of the issue focused on the JFK assassination was whether or not he would have won his next election. The 1964 presidential election could have had a totally different result if JFK would have ran for it. According to Yahoo News “JFK had a popularity rating that was 58 percent right before his assassination”. Also, according to constitution center, “that number was higher than Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, five presidents who won re-election.” The world today would have been different if JFK wouldn 't have been assassinated because Lyndon Baines Johnson would not have been elected during the 1964 election.
At 12:30 p.m., on November 22nd, 1963, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s motorcade was passing through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, when he was shot and killed. His assassination shocked the nation, and the police were quick to react. On the same day, Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for the murder of John F. Kennedy. Two days later, Oswald was shot and killed by Jack Ruby, a nightclub owner, outside the doors of the Dallas Police Headquarters. With no confession or trial to prove Oswald’s guilt, the suspicion of a conspiracy to assassinate the President gripped the American people. However, the United States Government’s position was that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. They said he was a lone gunman and a mad man, who killed the President with no help whatsoever. In response, there were many speculations about the assassination and the government’s attempt to cover up this particular event. Could a controversial theory prove that there was more than one
Oswald is one of the most recognizable names in history, the one man alone assassinated John F. Kennedy, president of The United States in 1963. Life for this man is up for question but some facts are known about Oswald, such as his childhood and teenage life. The secret life this man had was very off putting but helped investigative forces the reasoning behind him killing JFK.
It’s the year 1976, the United States Senate has just called for a new inquiry into the infamous assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who was shot in 1963 during his own motorcade in Dallas, TX while running for re-election. The CIA along with the FBI were coaxed into releasing new documents on Lee Harvey Oswald, and individuals who had not given evidence previously were persuaded to come forward. Pieces of evidence such as sound recordings and photographs were being subjected to scientific research analysis using more modern equipment. In 1979 the House Select Committee on Assassinations, or (HCSA), finally came to a verdict that Lee Harvey Oswald shot three times at the president; one of which, hitting his head and killing him. It was also concluded that a fourth shot was taken from ‘the grassy knoll’, which was something that was contradicting to the statement given by the Warren Commission 16 years earlier. Another conclusion stated that the John F. Kennedy assassination was the result of a government conspiracy.
