After the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, his body was placed in an expensive bronze casket with his damaged head wrapped only in a sheet.

However, it arrived at Bethesda Naval Hospital for an autopsy in a cheap military shipping casket, and the corpse had been placed in a body bag.

We know this from the testimony of Bethesda technicians Paul O’Connor, Dennis David and Jerrol Custer. Custer said he already had taken X-rays of the president’s body when the hearse carrying the bronze casket, accompanied by Jackie and Bobby Kennedy arrived.

So what happened?

While Lyndon Johnson was taking the oath as the new president aboard Air Force One, Kennedy’s body was secretly removed from the bronze casket, placed on Air Force Two and flown ahead to Washington, where surgery was performed to try to make it appear the president’s wounds had been received from shots fired behind the president, where the patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald, had been located.

This is conclusive proof of a coup d’ etat.

Keep this in mind during the coming year when the news media try to tell you otherwise. Their ignoble crusade already has begun with Bill O’Reilly’s book “Killing Kennedy,” and it appears actor Tom Hanks will join in the deception with his movie “Parkland.”

How sad and pathetic.

I am a budding writers and your conception is very handy one look for me. writing service Which helps me a lot to write more. also have some handy concept about the writing service. Which is very delightful to me.

Buggs Raplin

There's video of eyewitness Roger Craig at the What Really Happened web site. It's an eye-opener for folks willing to open their eyes.

Buggs Raplin

Video of Secret Service complicity in the assassination is easily accessible on the internet: Google: Secret Service stand down at Love Field. Additionally, the Secret Service driver of JFK's limousine was in on the plot. He actually stopped the vehicle AFTER shots had rang out. 59 witnesses in Dealey Plaza said the limousine came to a stop or near stop-that the brake lights came on. You don't see this on the Zapruder film, which is proof that the CIA edited it out, tampered with it. Remember the public never got to see the Zapruder film until the mid 1970's. Even with CIA editing, the fatal head shot could not be manipulated, and it shows conclusively that the fatal head shot was fired from in front of the president, from the grassy knoll.

DOL

Your evidence that this was a CIA hit fails at the very core. I was in Special Forces. JFK was our patron and beloved president. He alone was responsible for creating and backing SF (Green Berets). To this day, members of SF put a Green Beret wreath on JFK's grave at Arlington. As you know, SF and the CIA worked extensively together in Vietnam. Almost hand in glove. Do you really think that a conspiracy involving the execution of JFK by the CIA would not have leaked to members of SF who were working hand in hand with CIA agents in VN throughout the 60's/70's. If you do, you have never served in any of our nation's federal services.

DOL

Furthermore, by your own so called evidence, the secret service would also had to have been involved to move the body and to allow the CIA access to it. Your conspiracy theory is so far out of line with reality as to be reality. There is much more evidence that the Mafia had JFK killed to silence RFK's assault on organized crime and the double dealing by Joseph Kennedy when he bargained with the Chicago gangsters to give the Chicago vote to JFK and then reneged on the deal with RFK as Attorney General began his criminal prosecutions of the Mafia.

Buggs Raplin

Oh, yes, the mafia was involved. Trafficante and Marcello, and, of course, Jack Ruby. The CIA was working hand-in-glove with the Mafia. They were partners. And, as I mentioned earlier, members of the secret service were in on the plot. It was a coup.

Buggs Raplin

No, I have never served in any of our nation's federal services. I'm only reporting the facts-the facts, sir. The CIA killed John Kennedy; the Secret Service was complicit in the assassination, as was Lyndon Johnson.

DOL

You also believe 9/11 was an inside job. Your conspiracy theories fly in the face of credible scientific evidence, the very essence of human behavior which throughout history shows that hundreds of people cannot keep a secret for very long, and calls into dishonor the very patriot service of thousands of Americans in the secret service and CIA. Quit reading discredited book writers and lunatics.

Buggs Raplin

Yes, 9/11 was an inside job; the evidence is conclusive; For those who have blindly accepted the government explanation, but would like to hear the truth. Start by examining video of the collapse of Building 7, which was not by a jetliner. Your government experts say fire brought down that building. When you realize the absurdity of that claim, then you realize the building was rigged with explosives. It was a controlled demolition. When an open-minded person reaches that conclusion, then other questions come in to his head. Why was Building 7 rigged with explosives being the first and foremost. DOL, your 'dishonor' rationale is bunk. Or do you believe questioning the government is somehow unpatriotic?

Buggs Raplin

A front page article in the NY Times by Arthur Krock on Oct. 3, 1963 told how the CIA had disobeyed orders from JFK's Vietnam Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge because it didn't agree with them. Krock went on to write the following..."If the United States ever experiences an attempt at a coup, it will come from the CIA, not the Pentagon. The Agency represents a tremendous power and has total unaccountability to anyone." The CIA was, indeed involved. Agent E. Howard Hunt made a death bed confession to that effect. Clay Shaw, who was prosecuted by Jim Garrison in New Orleans as part of the conspiracy, was also a CIA asset. Shaw was acquitted though he lied at the trial about his CIA connection. The jury found there was a conspiracy, but there wasn't enough evidence to convict Shaw. Much later a Florida jury concluded the CIA was involved in the assassination in the case of E. Howard Hunt versus Libery Lobby who put out The Spotlight newspaper.

LesTrafik

There’s no ignoring JFK never trusted the CIA, his warmongering generals, Texas Oil Oligarchs. They never embraced his ‘criminal’ war-avoiding efforts (Loas, Berlin, Cuba twice, plans to leave ‘Nam). HE was too smart, compromising for THEM (aside from his flings).

Buggs Raplin

Again, one only gets 250 words in a letter to the paper so I had to leave out some info. The autopsy of the president should have been done in Dallas according to Texas law. But the Secret Service took the body over the objections of Dr. Earl Rose, who would have performed the autopsy at Parkland Hospital. Dr. Rose was vehement in his insistence to do the autopsy to the point the Secret Service took out their firearms. It was essential for the coup plotters that there not be an honest autopsy. An honest autopsy would have shown the president had been hit at least twice by shots fired from in front of him. One need only view the Zapruder film to see that the fatal head shot came from in front of the president, from the grassy knoll.

Buggs

I went back and read my post again and there is no reference to you personally, only to your letter. Your writing is a bit bizarre. Maybe you are also bizarre, maybe not? I don't know.

Buggs Raplin

You're right. I was wrong on the character thing. My apologies.

Seriously Now

Buggs and Nappy: Go find a room.

Buggs Raplin

I totally agree with TPFLG's sentiments. I feel the same about his/her comments defending Obama and attacking the Tea Party. Of course, she's anonymous, and I am not. Chip DeNure=Buggs Raplin. I'd just point out (again) that there's been NO challenge to the evidence I've presented in support of a coup, just ignorant opinion. Hey, TPFLG, who are you? Identify yourself or are you a coward?

Tim Russell

Only narcissists feel it is important that they be able to identify those that don't agree with them. Narcissistic is a personality disorder where a person needs to feel more important then everyone else. Another word for this is egotistic.

Buggs Raplin

I fail to see the narcissism in my reply to TPFLG. She made a derogatory comment to my character. I asked her to identify herself/himself, as my identity is known. I don't mind attacks on my character if the attacker is known and gives her or his name..but I object when people belittle me and hide behind anonymity.

Fits you to a tee Russell

TeapartiesR4L'ilGirls

I am so glad to live in a free society with a free press. The Tribune's willingness to include this type of really off letter is a testament to our free press. "Any" idea can get printed.

Buggs Raplin

I am gratified by the results of the Tribune poll-a lot of folks realizing Oswald didn't kill JFK. Now, before savouring my afternoon martini, I'd like to note that the Trib excised (censored) my use of the word "vermin" to describe the media. Not surprising in the least. But had they run with the original, I was ready to issue an apology to all mice and rats. They are much higher on the evolutionary scale than the media.

got2hunt

To the Trib: Please don't print anymore of Chips letters. I just can't take it anymore.

Buggs Raplin

Gee, pal, you don't have to read them; nobody forcing you to read them; are you helpless?

MidwestAtheist

Ah Chip...

If the president can't get a BJ in the oval office where only himself and one other person were involved, and same thing with the head of the CIA can't have an affair and keep it quiet, how the h*ll do you propose these vast government conspiracies, involving literally hundreds if not thousands of individuals can be pulled off without a single smoking gun found, not a single whistleblower with the goods coming forward?

I know you believe all of these details regarding this autopsy to be factual, however I'm not willing to just believe you on your say-so, and I don't see any references that you have posted to anyone I would necessarily believe. Were you there at the time? How are you justified in making these statements with such an air of authority?

Buggs Raplin

As I mentioned earlier, video of Paul O'Connor is easily accesible on the internet. Dennis David and Jerrol Custer's testimony as well as O'Connor's is available on the video "Best Evidence." Books that feature the macabre circumstances involving the body of JFK are David Lifton's "Best Evidence", Phillip J. Nelson's "LBJ, Mastermind of the JFK Assassination", James Fetzer's "Murder in Dealey Plaza", and Harrison Livingstone's "Killing the Truth." These are all scholarly works with footnotes, indecies, and bibliographies. Additionally, it should be noted that numerous witnesses were killed by the CIA's black operations kill teams. One of the more notables was Oswald's CIA handler George de Morenshield, who was also an acquaintence of Poppy Bush. *When you have the media standing in the way of the truth, as they have done in JFK's assassination, it is a major obstacle in preventing the justice we so desperately need.

RetPopo

Nap ole bud,
Sorry got cut off there. How foolish of me. Hope you have a nice Thanksgiving and don't forget to thank your creator for your blessings. And remember, in hope there is hope...Go too Wisconsin Department of Behavorial Health. Sorry if that hurt your feelings.

RetPopo

Napoleon,
No comprehension problem at all. Fully aware of your stance towards Buggs, but the comprehension difficulties come with your rhetoric and history of lunacy. Sorry, if that hurt your feelings. I get the feeling that maybe you do this stuff because you have no life and are bored? Are you really a common sensed, fiscally responsible, patriotic, smaller government Republican? Or a hard core Socialist with leanings towards Anarchists and the destruction of this great country? As I said, I wonder where it went wrong. Sorry, if that hurt your feelings. Anyway, I'm out for a week or two. Have better more productive things to do. H

Buggs Raplin

Geez, where it went wrong you ask? Well, try 11/22/63. The country hasn't been the same since. Just a series of warlord presidents, some more violent than the others. JFK stood up to the military/industrial complex and the CIA. That's why he was killed. Duh.

Tim Russell

I'm pretty sure JFK was killed because he had Obama's Birth Certificate hidden away in a secret safe in the ConEd power station located below WTC Building #9. However, I think it was the Republicans who had him killed, not the CIA.

retiredone

no one much cares what you think Timmy

Buggs Raplin

Well, I've mentioned this before, but it applies considering the 'intelligence' of my critics. Back in the 1890's, Brooks Adams, grandson of John Quincy Adams, and Henry Cabot Lodge, grandfather of the future running mate of Richard Nixon belonged to an elite dining club, whose motto was, "The people hiss at me, but I applaud myself." Just once...I say..just once would my critics address the evidence I present...challenge it if they can...but no..they just skulk off into name calling, and feeble attempts at 'humorous' ridicule. Meanwhile, with the evidence solidly behind my positions, I applaud myself. Way to go Chip!

Seriously Now

More FlapJaw urban legend nonsense. This isn't even amusing, or clever. Just 3 nuts taking up bandwidth. Trib: Please give us a filter.

Napoleon

Elvis?

RetPopo

Oh boy, I not only have to wonder what color the sky is in Denure's world but also this Buggs. Now we get the crazy rants of this Napoleon. One has to shake their head and wonder where it went wrong for them. In the womb? Growing up? At some liberal college? Thats an oxymoron. Don't you realize that Oswald was actually Jack Ruby's stepson and he had to silence him because he did not want Oswald's mother to find out he was running an exotic dance establishment that RFK frequented with Marilyn Monroe? You people crack me up but there will always be that 10%.

Napoleon

Retpoopy: my "rant," as it were, was anti, not pro-Buggs. Do you have a reading comprehension problem?

retiredone

WhAt ArE a ComPreheNsion PrOblem? BWWAAHHAAA

Buggs Raplin

Well, this is a typical ploy of people who are afraid to confront the evidence- avoidance tempered with ridicule and ridiculousness. In any letter to the Trib, one is limited to 250 words, so I decided to omit Paul O'Connor's testimony that when he opened the shipping casket, JFK's brain was missing. Clearly a portion of it had been blown out the back of his head in Dallas, but O'Connor stated that the brain was almost completely gone. More evidence of a coup. Video of Paul O'Conner's testimony is easily accessed on the internet for those unlike RetPopo who have the courage to look at it. By the by, all the technicians at Bethesda were under threat of court martial if they talked about what they had seen at the autopsy.

Napoleon

Buggs/Chip/Denure: "where surgery was performed to try to make it appear the president’s wounds had been received from shots fired behind the president"

C'mon Buggs, you're the guy who said on this very comment board that space aliens built the Egyptian pyramids? (No, this is not a joke.) You're just making stuff up again. You say that Bush-Cheney ordered the destruction of the WTC too. Again, that's just silly.

I suspect strongly that the JFK, RFK, MLK and John Lennon were done in not by lone gunmen but by conspiracies too, but I've no solid evidence. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, as Carl Sagan said. You need to present some solid evidence.

The only thing sillier than Buggs' wild theories is belief in some sort of Christian god, in talking snakes, in food falling from the sky. Chip, you're beginning to sound like a crazy Christian! Don't let that happen, Chip! Save yourself before they carry you away in a straightjacket with crosses on it!

Buggs Raplin

Nappy, there were two FBI agents at the autopsy. They reported there had been obvious surgery to the head. Of course, no surgery to the head had been done in the hospital in Dallas. They did do a tracheotomy to this throat wound, by making a small incision over the bullet hole. Incidentally, all doctors and nurses at Parkland said this throat wound was an ENTRY wound meaning, of course, the shot had been fired from in front of JFK, not behind where the patsy, Oswald, was located. Anyhow, by the time the body reached Bethesda, the small throat incision made in Dallas had been enlarged considerably, another indication that surgery was performed on the body after JFK's assassination. Conclusive proof of a coup.

Chip. what color is the sky in your world??

Buggs Raplin

I see the Tribune poll has most respondents believing Oswald killed Kennedy. Kind of hard to do, though, when he was eating his lunch on the 2nd floor of the Texas School Book Depository at the time JFK was gunned down. Oswald was either CIA or ONI. He was sent to the Soviet Union as a 'dangle'-a false defection, but the Soviets didn't fall for it, and he came home. Oswald was also an FBI informant at the time of the assassination earning $200/month. He likely provided the warning to the FBI that there was a plot to kill JFK in Chicago in early November 1963. JFK cancelled the Chicago visit as a result. The Warren Commission learned of Oswald's FBI informant status in January 1964, but because it didn't fit the official narrative of the lone nut, they didn't include that information in their report.

Buggs Raplin

Good morning, Nugget. "Glad" to see you addressed the issue at hand.
