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.

He begins with an overview and personal memories, then works through the bits and pieces of strong evidence, much of which is ignored by "official" investigations. He categorizes and sorts the various groups and people involved with his rational, Sherlock Holmes-like methods. He draws on the work of previous investigators, like Jim Marrs, and uses that information to build a remarkably clear overview of the conspiracy and its major players.

While I haven't read every book on the topic, I am reasonably well aware of the details which completely disprove the idiotic "lone nut" nonsense forced on the public by those involved in the treason. Farrell concentrates on evidence which completely rules out that idiotic story, and lays out connections I was not aware of, including the criminal investigations of Lyndon Johnson, including previous political murders tied to Johnson. The trail is shown to clearly implicate Johnson as the focal point of the conspiracy, even if he did not instigate it. The man should have been in prison, not public office.

Despite anything Johnson is "rumored" to have said in public or private (politicians never lie, right?), his ACTIONS are what matters, and those actions are documented quite clearly to be extremely suspicious, as well as overtly criminal in some instances (destroying evidence, for example - a felony). If a few of his words are SO important, then consider his threats toward Kennedy - he is documented to have stated that he took the Vice Presidency hoping Kennedy would be killed, making him President. Nothing suspicious there...

I was also surprised by the information about the Zapruder film and its likely fraudulent nature (as well as the many variations in existence). The scope and power of those behind this heinous crime against the American people is amazing and frightening. The manner in which it was carried out and covered up is highly instructive for anyone who would see clearly the events of today, especially 9-11, Wellstone's death, and various market crashes.

Which brings me to answering the question of why JFK matters today: that is simple - the people who are responsible are part of a secret power structure which continues to exist today, and which every day weakens and destroys everything this country was created for. If you want to know why the world is the disgusting mess it is today, you have to understand the historical forces which brought us to where we are, and seek to turn us into slaves and corpses for their pathetic, psychotic purposes.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (Santayana)

Another great book from Farrell, highly recommended.

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 am still amazed that after almost 50 years, there are people who still subscribe to the "lone nut,single bullet" theory in the assassination of President Kennedy.

Numerous scholars have painstakenly done the research into the why and how our President was in a "ritual bloodbath for all to see."

Now, Mr. Farrell has taken it up a notch and you will know "the why" and for anyone who insists on keeping their heads in the sand,....."Denial is a River in Egypt."

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.

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.

If you have any doubts about LBJ being involved in the JFK assassination, read "A Texan Looks At Lyndon, A Study In Illegitimate Power" by J. Evetts Haley. He chronicles LBJ's unscrupulous activities from the very beginning as he climbed to power with the assistance of Billy Sol Estes and a whole bevy of other cronies. He was as ruthless a man that ever walked the face of the earth. Every investigation resulted in his escaping involvment, such as witnesses who were judged a suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning yet no carbon monoxide was found in his lungs. Another witness was found dead, a shotgun nearby, 4 bullets in his chest and the grand jury couldn't agree that it was murder so it was ruled a suicide. LBJ had to have planted someone on the grand jury to achieve that kind of ruling! Wonder how the guy managed to shoot himself 4 times with a shotgun? And to think that he was able to manipulate the assassination of JFK is perfectly logical when you read his background.

"LBJ and the Conspiracy to Kill Kennedy: A Coalescence of Interests" is sadly, a mess. In the introduction, the author, Joseph P. Farrell, engages the reader with a personal reminiscence of seeing on television the swearing in of Lyndon B. Johnson on November 22, 1963. He writes: "I remember, too, as a boy of six, watching the new president, Lyndon Baines Johnson - how apt now his middle name seems! - being sworn into office as the thirty-sixth president of the United States of America on Air Force One at Love Field in Dallas with the wife of the slain president looking on, still wearing her blood-stained dress. The air of gloom hanging in the living room of our house in Sioux Falls, South Dakota was palpable as we watched the ceremony take place."

The fact is, however, that the sad ceremony was never televised. There were no film or television cameras present, and the only records of the event were a scratchy Dictabelt recording of the Oath of Office, and a series of still pictures taken by photographer Cecil W. Stoughton of the White House Press Office.

This is emblematic of Mr. Farrell's entire book. He's imagining things that weren't there. Let me be clear, I believe there was a conspiracy to murder JFK and a conspiracy to cover up the crime. I was 14 years old at the time, and I've read over 200 books on the subject, including the original Warren Commission Report. Some were good. Some were not.

"LBJ and the Conspiracy to Kill Kennedy: A Coalescence of Interests" is not very good. The reason it's not very good is because he tosses every possible culprit into the assassination cabal: LBJ, the CIA, the FBI, the Secret Service, the Mafia, the Military, Big Oil, NASA, and especially Nazis, Nazis, Nazis everywhere! That's not to say that some or many of these elements were not part of a conspiracy, but by painting with such a broad and imprecise brush the author tends to obscure more than he reveals. Moreover, his notion that the assassination was purposely staged as a ritual sacrifice congruent with elements of black magic is absolute looney-bin nonsense!!

Here are some excellent books I've read that interested readers might consider:

"Accessories After the Fact" by Sylvia Meagher. Accessories After the Fact]

"Best Evidence" by David Lifton. [[ASIN:B000OMK8S8 Best Evidence -


"Murder in Dealey Plaza" by Jim Fetzer. Murder in Dealey Plaza: What We Know Now that We Didn't Know Then

"Cover-Up" by Stewart Galanor Cover-Up

"The Last Investigation" By Gaeton Fonzi. The Last Investigation

"The Man Who Knew Too Much" by Dick Russell. The Man Who Knew Too Much

"JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters" by James W. Douglass

"JFK's War with the National Security Establishment: Why Kennedy Was Assassinated" by Douglas Horne

"Master Chronology of the JFK Assassination" by Walt Brown, Ph.D.

I never believed the single bullet theory....and I always felt there had to be more to this tragedy. I followed all I could or was written about that day and the days after....The "60's" were truly a decade that I found so crazy that I still can't believe we came thru it.
Reading this book finally puts things in perspective...and makes sense..altho I DO understand that at the time...no-one would or could handle the truth. No wonder our society doesn't trust the Government or anyone in politics. What a shame ....

I'm so glad that at last someone has written the book that should have been written instead of the Warren Commission Report.

When Johnson said he was not going to run again for the Presidency all that I could think of at the time was someone sat him down and told
him the jig was up and that if he indeed tried to remain President the truth would come out.

What started my mind thinking that Johnson was responsible was several factors but what I could not pass by and forget was one of the pictures taken in the plane when
Johnson was sworn in. Standing in the background was Congressman Albert Richard Thomas. Most pictures that one sees just shows Johnson with his hand raised and everyone looking
on. But there is another picture that is not usually shown. It is Johnson's head turned looking at Thomas and Thomas has a smirk on his face and is winking. Not an appropriate look at all. But one of satisfaction. Sure I'm guessing and can't possibly know what was going on in their minds. But there is something to facial expressions and this picture has it. Then of course there is the testimony of LBJ's mistress.

LBJ was without conscience.
