Joseph P. Farrell was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1957, has a B.A. in Biblical Studies and Philosophy, an M.A. in Historical and Theological Studies, and a Ph.D. in Patristics (NOT physics as one of his publishers keeps insisting on saying in spite of his best efforts to get them to change that!). After a lifelong interest in alternative history, science, and a fascination for ancient texts, Joseph started writing in 2001 on these subjects. He also studied pipe organ from the age of six until beginning college, and composes classical music for friends and family. He also plays the harpsichord.
Everyone who was alive and aware (except Nixon, oddly enough) remembers where they were when JFK was killed. (I was in a 4th grade class.) The two most powerful defining events for this country in the last century were Pearl Harbor and JFK's murder. (9-11, despite being managed by a much more sophisticated PR machine, pales in comparison to those two events - no disrespect meant to those who suffered and died in that.)
But mention November 22, 1963 today and you will likely get a reaction like: "JFK's assassination? Isn't that ancient history? What's that got to do with a fresh Starbucks and Twitter........? What is Vietnam again?"
Well, if you want to know why the world is the way it is today, JFK's murder is the lens through which you must look to see what is truly going on now. November 22, 1963 is the day the American Democratic experiment ended forever, replaced by a pathetic, puppet-theater version of itself.
Much has been written about that day and the events which followed, as well as several movies, however the complete truth still eludes us to this day. Now Joseph Farrell turns his prodigious talents again in the direction of that conspiracy, and illuminates new corners of that darkness.
Farrell dons his forensic historian hat and pieces together the puzzle of all the disparate vested interests and people who are known to have been involved in that treasonous skullduggery. For the first time, he pulls together a coherent picture of how all the various interests of oilmen, CIA, FBI, politicians, Mafia, Nazis and others coalesced in that loathsome and despicable act of cowardly treason and betrayal.Read more ›
it puts all the pieces together, i feel sorry for the previous reviewer who just doesn't want to admit that a conspiracy killed john kennedy and that our country has not been the same since. and defintley lbj had everything to gain from it. also for the people out there who still believe in the lie of the oswald- did- it- all- by- himself theory, which by the way is the most ludicrous theory of them all, i compare them with the other sad people who claim that the holocaust never happened., wake up!! conspiracies happen in history, and oswald was innocent.
This book is a fresh analysis of available evidence, some of which no longer exists but was well documented in its time. The author has consistently displayed an increasing ability to stay with the facts and to avoid the word "theory." The reader should be prepared for a lengthy and detailed journey through a relatively brief period in the history of our country, and availability of a notepad is highly encouraged.
It was necessary for me to frequently remind myself that this is NOT a work of fiction but an extremely well documented work of non-fiction. It is not a "page turner" rapid read for the truly interested individual.
On November 22, 1963, I was approximately half way through Recruit Training at the Great Lakes, Illinois, Navy Recruit Training Center. That day is locked in my memory forever. For the first time, this book has allowed me the means and opportunity to unlock many of the mysteries that accompanied the events of that day into my memory. Thank you, Mr. Farrell, for the keys to those mysteries.

I much recommend this work for anyone wanting to get to the bottom of the "crime of the century" - for America at least - a crime which scarred a nation and opened the way for the destruction now unraveling around us. Jim Douglas' "JFK and the Unspeakable" opens supportive and complementary avenues - and I would also give his book a 5 star rating. Farrell succinctly puts the pieces together, and you will not waste your time with this work. One key, the "Permindex Corp." is revealed a link to an even more shadowy and unnamed group; Johnson was also a key tool in their hands, not the master planner -- much like GHW Bush and Kissinger: visible nodes of a deeper evil. If you are a researcher Farrell's well referenced style is most helpful, turning over all stones and giving multiple useful and corroborating clues.

Couldn't put this book down. After all these years, I'm still finding out details about this History altering event. Only things missing were the reports from the nurse at the hospital, the Dallas policeman and the FBI agent at the White house garage. They all stated that the presidential limo had a bullet hole in the windshield...fired from in front !! And the auto plant where the limo was taken, the foreman on his deathbed & later also revealed in his last will the entrance hole in the windshield. Also the blow up photo of the grassy knoll ( from "Dark Mission, secret history of NASA " )showing three figures.
