All are guilty of trying to make you feel stupid for questioning an absurdity. To achieve this, they rely on literal psychological warfare, on psy-op tactics we use on enemy states. They know that people all have a hard-wired fear of not fitting in, of exclusion, of being ostracized. They will attempt to present the illusion that you are stupid and naive for questioning the absurdity of the official story, and to do it they will try to make it appear that everyone else believes them so why shouldn't you? They may interview 100 people about the JFK assassination and only air the five so-called "experts" who believe the Warren Commission to present the illusion of a false consensus.
To this effect, every year around this time, the anniversary of Kennedy's assassination, they will provide a false consensus of opinion that the matter is closed. Television shows will focus almost exclusively on supporters of the Warren Commission. The print media will do the same. The reason this will be easy is because we have a monopolized media where networks and print media are owned by just five corporations: General Electric, Viacom, Disney, Time Warner and the News Corporation (FOX),
And again, no one will be forcing these "elite" media personalities to lie to you, they will be paid to do it, and usually it is less costly than a cheap hooker.
The psychological attack waged on Americans is best explained by the Asch Experiment, where subjects were convinced to disbelieve their own eyes upon seeing others (conspirators in the experiment) giving the wrong answer. Rather than defend an answer they knew was right, subjects felt pressured to conform and change their answer to the wrong one because the fear of not fitting in and standing out is that strong.[easyrotator]erc_66_1426537185[/easyrotator]
Media assets will attempt to create a false consensus effect wherein everyone will be portrayed as believers of an absurdity or falsehood, and like this subject, the aim is to make you conform and disbelieve your own eyes by manipulating the human need to fit in, working via our fear of exclusion.
In the simplest terms, what happened on November 22, 1963, was a right-wing paramilitary coup that put Lyndon Baines Johnson in power.
Johnson, Nixon, and J. Edgar Hoover were key conspirators in the JFK assassination. Two presidents and the FBI Director were involved in the planning and concealment, and that's how and why the coup has been so effectively concealed. Don't get your panties in a bunch yet, though, because they are dead. All of them. You don't have to fear them or their conspirators anymore. As for culpability that is what all of the witnesses and evidence points to from day one, and it is an overwhelming and undeniable body of evidence so unambiguous and chilling that its brazen denial by authorities suggests that the only conclusion that can be drawn is that you are supposed to be intimidated into believing you have to accept the fairy tale, that you have no choice as to whether or not you will perpetuate the monstrous injustice against the Kennedys, Martin Luther King, Jr. and the American people.
It is like you have just witnessed thugs brutally murder a man, and having them threateningly tell you "You did not see a thing. Move on." The latter is what the corporate media has been telling Americans for 50 years.
Cmdr. James Joseph Humes was uncharacteristically "scared to death" when he unzipped the body bag, looked into Kennedy's skull, and he saw no brain
The Empty Casket
When the First Lady arrived at the Bethesda Naval Hospital she arrived at the front of the building with a heavily guarded casket that was actually empty.Another navy ambulance had arrived earlier, which was driven by Johnson appointee and conspirator Admiral Calvin Galloway. It pulled up at the rear of the building, and a grayish-pink shipping casket was unloaded. In Dallas the president was tenderly wrapped in a white linen shroud and placed in a bronze ceremonial casket. By the time Kennedy's body arrived in Bethesda it was in a cheap shipping casket, and wrapped in a body bag. The final, cruelest indignity was that Kennedy was stripped naked and bereft of his shroud when they unzipped the bag.You can imagine the surprise of the doctor falsely attributed with the original autopsy. At the Bethesda Naval Hospital, autopsy assistant Paul O'Conner could only describe Cmdr. James Joseph Humes as uncharacteristically "scared to death" when he unzipped the body bag, looked into Kennedy's skull, and he saw no brain. Naturally. The brain contained damning evidence of trajectory and bullet fragments, and conspirators would attempt to replace the brain with another man's. Problem was, witnesses remembered that Kennedy's brain was mostly gone. A part of the brain, for instance, was still in Mrs. Kennedy's hands as she waited at Parkland Memorial, still in shock. She then gave it to a doctor at the scene.
The casket would be dumped into the sea at Johnson's behest two years later.
Operation Northwoods, a plan drawn up the Joint Chiefs of Staff, hoped to launch a false flag terrorist attack to blame the Kennedy assassination on the Cubans. This would make an invasion of Cuba possible, one that the public opposed since it was just after the Cuban Missile Crisis and we had just come to the brink of thermonuclear war. Consider the CIA Instructional Guide for Political Assassinations and the parallels with the Kennedy assassination:
"...a) The precision rifle. In guarded assassination, a good hunting or target rifle should always be considered as a possibility. Absolute reliability can nearly always be achieved at a distance of one hundred yards. In ideal circumstances, the range may be extended to 250 yards. Public figures or guarded officials may be killed with great reliability and some safety if a firing point can be established prior to an official occasion. The propaganda value of this system may be very high.... "
The propaganda value they sought was the most powerful anti-Castro propaganda possible. Lee Harvey Oswald had been interviewed on local television before the assassination and was paid by the FBI to portray a pro-Castro activist. This made him the perfect patsy.
".....However, there are many cases in which firearms are probably more efficient than any other means. These cases usually involve distance between the assassin and the subject..."
*Note: Please refer to National Security Archives for original document images.
Is it clear, now, why the disinformation campaign would be waged so long, and so fiercely, so long after the fact? Doesn't it all make sense now? Think about it. Think about what happens to every country in which there has been a coup. Think about what happens to their media.
There were many players and the architect of the assassination has an airport named after him. He was a rather unremarkable man for such an honor. He was Allen Dulles, the CIA Director fired by Kennedy for his fuck up in the Bay of Pigs disaster. Because all the key players are dead, you should understand now that the only people that still benefit from the continued concealment of this monumental injustice are the corporate media. They want to protect a credibility they have lost long ago, and they will not succeed. They will still commit the great harm and treason they are notorious for: they will wage domestic psychological warfare on you in a literal and tactical sense.
They Don't Even Believe their Own Argument
Along with being mostly water a melon (a cantaloupe was used) which is comparatively hollow in the center as you can see by splitting one in half, and the skull has about 3 pounds of brain matter. Because the melon is hollow there is no coup contre-coup effect and would therefore be consistent with the Warren Commission's fairy tale. That's why they used it. They knew it, and tried to pass it off as science in a show supposedly dedicated to attacking "bullshit." That's the thing that bothers me. They don't even believe their own argument, so much so they had to invent an experiment that would somehow make the Warren Commission's theory plausible, and still they failed.
If Penn & Teller believed in the veracity of their argument, there would be no attempt to deceive the audience in the experiments. Real animal or cadaver skulls would be used. They would gladly submit to all these tests, because if they believed the theory enough to test it objectively, they would be unafraid of looking foolish. Now they look like a couple of scat-munching, amoral dumbfucks, the kind of assholes that would try to downplay a rape or child molestation by challenging whose blood is really on the sheets, if it really took place or if the victims had it coming or it was consensual. And they would say these things because they "were watching out for us" because that is the premise of their show, right? To save us from, and to expose bullshit?
The only thing worse than child molestation and rape is murder, so if you are defending the Warren Commission from a moral or pseudo-intellectual perch, at least explain why you have attacked the witnesses, be it directly or indirectly, and why you have abandoned basic deductive reasoning and the scientific method to do so.
Penn & Teller: 56 Witnesses Conspired to Lie to the Warren Commission
Is this a harsh assessment? Actually, not in the least. There were at least 56 witnesses who heard gunshots coming from the Grassy Knoll, so it's pretty much no different than Penn & Teller telling 56 murder witnesses they didn't see what they saw, or hear what they heard, because they, in their almighty wisdom, knew better. Sure, these cock goblins weren't even there, but they knew better. After all, who would you trust? Someone who was there and witnessed the assassination, or someone who was not and dedicated a whole show to ridiculing the same witnesses by asserting a melon was the same as a human skull? Because 56 witnesses would have to conspire to present the same consistent account, the most ridiculous and obvious conspiracy theory of all is coming from the Lone Gunman theorists.
But again, their offense went even further than downplaying rape or child molestation. It deals with murder, with a brutal murder that took place in front of women and children, in front of an entire nation. It is about an American president shot down like an animal on the streets of Dallas. It is about their inexcusable attempts to conceal the truth about what happened; starting with the misrepresentation of the evidence presented and culminating with assertions they have debunked Lone Gunman/Magic Bullet Theory critics after refusing to address contradictory evidence.
Under this fucktardian reasoning President Kennedy not only survived birth with a melon for a skull, since they were interchangeable, he thrived and became president.
That was their grand argument in their attempt to pass off "The Single Bullet Theory" as fact. But first of all, "The Single Bullet Theory" is something that doesn't exist. What does exist is called "The Magic Bullet Theory" because of the impossible trajectory one of the bullets had to make. The implausibility of the trajectory presented by the Warren Commission was never addressed, and that was always the heart of the argument.
So what they presented was this: they fired three shots in less than five seconds and then shot a melon to "prove" Kennedy was shot from behind. Again, it was never about the time it took, even though that remains questionable, it was about the impossible trajectory of one of those bullets, and the fact that it remained pristine after going through two people and striking bone.
Neither of their claims made any sense, and the smugness with which the pony-tailed, self-infatuated sow said "second gunman my ass" after proving absolutely nothing but his own sobering lack of character was embarrassing to watch.
Are Penn & Teller "True Believers" or Scum Bags?
"At least a third of the population are what Eric Hoffer calls true believers. They are joiners and followers… people who want to give away their power."
My vote? Scumbags.
They don't even believe their own argument, but they are joiners and followers in a self-styled elite of pseudo-intellectuals that feel the need to protect us from the truth almost fifty years after the fact. So who do they really serve, directly or indirectly, wittingly or unwittingly, by the attempt to mislead Americans? Julian C. Holmes writes to the Washington Post...
"The Warren Commission inquiry into the Kennedy Assassination was for the most part conducted in secret. This fact is buried in the Post. Nor do current readers of this newspaper find meaningful discussion of the Warren Commission's secret doubts about both the FBI and the CIA. Or of a dispatch from CIA headquarters instructing co-conspirators at field stations to counteract the new wave of books and articles criticizing the [Warren] Commission's findings…[and] 'conspiracy theories …[that] have frequently thrown suspicion on our organization and to discuss the publicity problem with liaison and friendly elite contacts, especially politicians and editors and to employ propaganda assets to answer and refute the attacks of the critics. …Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose. …The aim of this dispatch is to provide material for countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists…'"
It didn't work. In 1976 the Warren Commission had been so widely ridiculed and discredited that Congress itself reviewed the assassinations of President Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. On July 17, 1979, The House Select Committee on Assassinations announced:
"The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President Kennedy was probably assassinated as the result of a conspiracy. The committee is unable to identify the other gunman or the extent of the conspiracy."
Public figures, particularly the media "elite contacts" mentioned in the CIA dispatch still defending the Warren Commission, are literally like dogs returning to their own vomit.[easyrotator]erc_43_1426475939[/easyrotator]
Fuck You Very Much, Guys
Maybe they should be thanked because it's nonsense like this that has kept the controversy alive since 1963. Sure, they're insulting your intelligence and their motives are rooted in preserving the establishment myth and injustice, but with counter-arguments like Penn & Teller's we don't need their straw men to make them look ridiculous. We just need their own words.
