It's funny how an idea can get "stuck" in the mind, and even if it's not a particularly clear nor useful thing, the stinker just keeps doing laps, and won't go away! If such thoughts do not "lead anywhere", or merely complicates things, we wonder; "Why bother writing it down?" Well, it's just this, I am (surely!) not the best judge in town, as to whether these C.P.E.s are worth a hoot or not. How about you be the judge here, eh?
Just now, I am reading an unusual book. Entitled "That Day With God"; it is a collection of sermons, homilies and prayers all delivered on the same "Sabbath day" (weekend actually), and hence the title? Gee, let's see; late Nov. of '63, why bother recording those particular sermons? Oh, I know. . . John Kennedy was murdered in public, 22 Nov. 1963. That killing is a grievous loss, an open wound, which has only has festered over the years, never truly healing; and that following Saturday and Sunday, there was record attendance at church and synagogue, across the land. Of the many words spoken on those two days, we have in this book a sample of perhaps fifty (or so), presentations to read.
Historically then, I suspect it to be a unique book, in that we might recall a couple of things, so as to better view the material. My experience says that most sermons are prepared (at minimum), a day or two ahead of the time of delivery. If so; then these were written something like ten to forty hours after the "hit", and so are very "fresh" historical documents. At most, several days passed, but what we note is, that "already", mere hours after the assassination:
(a) It is firmly asserted, that a lone gun-man, "must have been" the (solitary) shooter.
(b) We all "share in the guilt", in that "we allow hate and intolerance to exist in society".
(c) JFK was some sort of glow-in-the-dark, secular saint.
What is remarkable here, is that these very early-on views, have to a large degree survived the next 48 years. . . intact! Isn't it odd? Fifty samples taken from across the nation, and from across all denominational, and even belief-system lines, all so very uniformly line up, mere hours after the killing? Moreover, those same ideas don't "go-away" over the next half-century? This is pushing "coincidence" over into the realm of the uncanny, I'd say.
How could have, all of those pastors, priests and rabbis have "known for sure", that Lee Oswald did the deed, prior to any real investigation by the police? How could they have been so certain that there was but one shooter? And my estimate here, is that some very powerful people were (and still are!) "managing" the news, and so; "shaping" public opinion. There is simply too much agreement around here, we know too-much, too-soon; and that first guessing is the final view? It ain't natural, I tell ya!
My clue is not so much, the usual "conspiracy-theory" thing, but is much more simple. We don't need to be told that "we" are responsible, when a David Berkowitz, or Charlie Manson butcher people. Nor are "we all guilty" about James Earl Ray or Sirhan Sirhan. So, why do we "need to" hear that junk when Oswald (supposedly) does so? And I say, we need no smoky room full of tri-lateralists; nor any illuminati, secretly planning evil deeds for incomprehensible ends, when we already know full well, that for absolutely certain; that L.B.J., J. Edgar Hoover, and the Dulles brothers absolutely despised the brothers, John and Bobby, and would have danced on their graves! So we know that the powerful-then, had motive, opportunity and means. No "shadow organizations" are required. So, this whole communal guilt-trip thing, is entirely beside the point, and unnecessary for the explanation. At best; it's pure smoke and mirrors, at worst, it's devilish. And speaking of devils. . .
Now, as to the "sainthood" of the victim, I'll tread lightly here, and simply say that if this is indeed a case of martyrdom, then it's yet, but another, and in a long string. And we have tons of examples of those, we compare life and doctrine. Martyrs (witnesses) are killed to shut them up, and silence their witness. We don't have to make up anything, but to simply tell the truth (which to my thinking), is exactly what is in short supply, lo; these many decades!
So, here's how you hide an elephant in America, you tell him to sit down in the middle of the living room, and smile! Nobody will see him. Or more pointedly; this is how you kill an elephant in America, you blow out the back of it's skull with hundreds of live witnesses, and then next proceed to swear up and down; "The shot 'must have' come FROM the rear!" Nobody will see. Lee Oswald (supposing he was even at Dealey Square that day!), was in one of the few places the shot(s) could not have come from. John is nailed from the front, and his brain-parts go flying backward, over the trunk of the limo. Jackie, in shock and horror, climbs out on the rear of the vehicle to retrieve the thing (like, maybe she can put it back?). The lady is hysterical, and wildly disoriented, but she is not blind, nor is she insane. She "just knows somehow" that the brain is "back there", and not "up there" in the front seat. Meanwhile, where (supposedly) is Oswald? Above, and behind the car? The guy is firing U-turn bullets from up yonder maybe? And to this day, the "experts" continue to preach that Kennedy was hit from the rear. Smile! Nobody will see.
Later, when the Zapruder film materializes, the stinking FeeBees cut and splice the thing to "show" his head being first rocked forward. Actually, in the film, that forward motion was the recoil inertia of the blow. They tried to switch it around, "so as to reveal" him; as-if impacted from the rear. But the splice job was so entirely bogus, that it was ridiculous, and proceeded to quietly go away. Smile! And never a one agent indicted, nor disciplined for falsifying evidence? What say you, J. Edgar? Meanwhile, the Warren Commission "loses testimony" which just co-incidentally does not agree with a rear-shot assault. Next, they alter the texts of those few reports which they do accept, they black-out major sections of their own "findings". . . but surely-surely they had "nothing to hide", right Mr. President. . . Ford? Yep, Jerry was on that commission. The Doctors over at Parkland Hospital, swore up and down, that a huge hole was blown out the right rear of Kennedy's skull. Very oddly indeed, the Naval surgeons (none of whom were certified to do autopsies?) "found only a small hole" back there? The "official autopsy" is a complete fraud. Smile! Nobody will see. Further, no police detective, local, state or federal (ever since) is even mildly curious about the astronomical odds of those many eyewitnesses who "mysteriously died" within a very few years of that day? People were threatened, evidence "disappeared", the gun "found in the shooter's nest" is not even the same weapon that was later submitted as Oswald's gun? Smile, nobody will see. Speaking of which, it would have been the shot of the century, in that, the (junk) Mannlicher Carcano "used" was, besides being a lousy rifle, was found afterward to not even being sighted in! Atop that, what with Lee known to be a lousy marksman and all, and it coming from the wrong direction? Smile. The Mannlicher would be akin to using a beat-up '93 Yugo, as the get-away car in the bank-job heist of the century? Smile. Nobody (ever) will see. Not only that, but the "miracle U-turn bullet", after striking two men (who together, did not line-up with "the nest"), is later "found intact" on The President's gurney at Parkland? Marvel of marvels, the thing is totally un-deformed? Wow, talk about flukey eh? . . ."Were it jus-like dat, unka-L.B.? Why shore-nuff it were, junior-tater-bug. . . You jus trus-me, would I lie?" Uh, to be blunt, yes; indeed you would-lie, and did-lie (Repeatedly!), you murdering S.O.B. . . Smile! Nobody will see. That's how to kill an elephant, American style.
The wound is deep, and it refuses to heal, and will not "go-away". The bullet is fired and the beast might fall immediately, or he might stagger on for awhile. In our case, it's been 48 years so-far. . . We have been trained to not-link the shot, to the collapse; in that it takes so very long for him to go down. Big critter! Therefore, there "can be no connection" between then and now, and only "conspiracy nuts" disagree. But I say this; the animal when it finally fails, will be bleeding. . . money?
See? In the same way that there is "no link" between then and now, likewise, there is "no link to be made" between inflation, and money supply! Our American catechism is very clear on this. Killings can only be done by "lone-nuts, and we can never know why". That solves that. However, we do feel quite certain that government never kills anybody, how could it; we are a democracy! Likewise; we have no idea as to why inflation arrives sometimes, but we do suspect that the moons of Jupiter might be involved somehow? Anyhow, it just arrives every now and again (from outer space?), but we do "remain free" to wish it away! To the money supply, no link exists. That inflation is just weird stuff! Furthermore, we see no link between these "self evident truths", and that committee of pervert clowns running the show, and "managing the news". There is such thing as "brainwashing", no such thing exists. . .
Back in the "hip generation" there was much distrust of "the establishment". Hippies very much thought "the man" was a pretty bad guy, and so, were "for" sex-drugs & rock n roll. So what? Newsflash, this just in; in that fight, "the man" won. . .again! If we compared briefly John's murder, to Joshua's we would note a couple of things right away. If the sanctioned killing by "the man" in 33 A.D. had been blamed on "a lone-nut", although we already knew that the "establishment" powerful actively hated him, who would be fooled? I'm going out on a limb some, but my guess is that not a single 1st cen. Hebrew baby could have been fooled into buying the idea that it was Barrabas who nailed Him up to that horrid tree, and that "we can never know why". Not a single one of His people would have believed for a moment that "our civil servants are doing a thorough investigation" so to determine, "if Barrabas acted alone". So obviously, it's a slender parallel, but my idea today is that even if such nonsense had somehow prevailed, it could not have survived fifty, or a hundred years for the simple reason that the very same "establishment" carrying out the original murder, was still killing the followers of Joshua! It would have been entirely impossible to "fool them in this way". So, why is it so damned easy to fool us? Were those "primitives" all that much more smarter than us? Or more pointedly, were they all that much more courageous perhaps?
As the community of the blind, we accept the fairy tale of "Lee dun-it", because it allows us the leisure to imagine that we ourselves, "mean well; and that our hallowed institutions (like us!) are basically good". Evil therefore exists, either as a plainly inexplicable crazy anger by a certain few imbalanced-sick individuals, or it is some type of diffused and non-local gas. As such; "We all share in the blame" (although no single person is ever blamed!). In this type of thinking then, we are assuming government itself (of all things!), and ourselves to be "basically good"? What unmitigated horse-anal-extract! And whatever the early believers' thoughts were, on politics as a topic (I wouldn't know); I do find it difficult to swallow that those folks inherently trusted the Roman "man". "He" was the one who was ever so industrious and honest, as to be slaughtering them for amusement in "his" sick circuses. . . just a thought there. The absolutely last thing that they would have ever concluded, was that their "man" was "basically good", much less themselves so! But, the pure B.S. (or was that H.S.?) of the snow-job Commission's report, those patent absurdities and contradictions, that big ol' slug of blank spots, plus the many deaths since, we somehow find "convincing"? So too, at the circus, the Romans did also. . . Smile! Nobody will see.
Between JFK and BHO, the elephant of meaning and truth has collapsed, and few indeed mourn his passing. Nowadays, it is considered "irrational" to link that killing, by that "establishment-then", to the killing of the dollar, by this "establishment-now". That elephantine bleeding, of those "unfunded liabilities" of the next half century are "estimated at" (because they are afraid to say the actual number!) at 50-200 trillion dollars. Newsflash; when money "goes away", neither power, nor the power-ful, go with it. But rather; "In these dire hours, we must (sadly) invoke "temporary" (you understand?) emergency powers for the duration of the crisis". . .See? it's always all-about those newsflash bulletins, and that gang of bigger than life emergencies. Stage magicians (and politicians too?) operate by distracting the eye, from where the action actually is. That "magic" is how this junk is done. "We don't have time to think it through, this is an emergency!" And from JFK getting nailed, to, and up through 9-11; the swift-sure hand of "the great" is always, and always to use "emergencies" to expand federal powers, and to limit yours. It has a name by the way, historically; it is called "propaganda". Don't like that one very much do you? Hows about "brainwashing" then? We have been trained (trained by whom?) "not to see. . . just certain things". But it ain't rocket science. Want to know who whacked John? Follow the money trail, it's "that complex".
One Man, and One Man alone, the True King Joshua who stood up again alive after His murder at the hands of "the man", can (or ought be!) trusted with power. . for He sought it not! Rather, He sought out His enemies, so to make them into friends? As His friends were in those days, and for His friends alive today, and those to friends yet to be born, "the man" will always try to silence, to ridicule, to jail, and finally to murder. We are their "enemies", or so they believe. But what odd enemies we are! We, who alone in all the world, pray for their souls? With enemies like this, who needs friends?
The truth cuts both ways. He alone is raised, and with Him a mighty (and glad) host rises-also; at His Mighty Shout. He remembers their fall. He remembers. . . everything, and yes He recalls perfectly that day at Dealey Square. . . unka-L.B., dirty J. Edgar, and foul Allen-D!
Soloman says it this way, "Fear God, keep His commands, and you shall live!" Right on Sol, right on baby! You da man!
