Please post a well-known photograph that touches you.


1284

Dorothea Lange's famous photograph of a destitute mother with her children was taken in depression-era California. The woman has been identified as Florence Thompson, who at the time was working as a pea picker. She was 32.

One can readily see the pain and worry on her lovely, but aged face. It makes me think about how my mother must have felt when she and her little girl arrived in America with no money, no food to eat, nothing but the dream of becoming an American.

Taken by Pulitzer Prize winning photographer, Eddie Adams. He claims that he caught this photo by chance, but it was obviously staged, as seen when a book of his photos was released in 2009, 5 years after his death. You can see another camera lense on the right side of this frame, and the well-groomed American directing:

I said it was "staged", not some random lucky photo by this Pulitzer Prize winner as he claimed. Said he didn't even know who the General was...but what is shown in your video could certainly be faked at that time.

You know the Zapruder (JFK) film was indisputably edited, right? Why would that be?

Do you find it suspicious that a snubnose .38 at that distance hardly blew the guy's head in the opposite direction of impact? How many ft-lbs of force would that be?

It's not even that. The magic bullet theory alone kills the official story.

Personally, I believe it was Johnson. Primarily John, Robert, and MLK. Johnson and his wife both owned stock in the companies that produced the tanks and uniforms for the military. They profited highly off the war in Vietnam, and JFK was in the process of ending the war with his disengagement policy, NSAM 263, which withdrew 1,000 troops from Vietnam by the end of 1963. JFK would have had us completely out of Vietnam by the end of his second term. Barely four days after Kennedy's death, Johnson revoked his disengagement order and escalated the war.

Robert Kennedy also wanted to end the Vietnam War, and would have had he become President. He was on track to beat the very unpopular Johnson in the Democratic primaries.

MLK also proved to be an adversary against the Vietnam War, and would not support Nixon as a successor* to Johnson.



*Johnson didn't like Hubert Humphrey, and in an unprecedented move, met with Nixon while Nixon was still a candidate and promised not to campaign for Humphrey and not campaign against Nixon. Johnson gave Nixon an "October Surprise" on Halloween, 1968, essentially stopping all bombardment of Vietnam (but not the ground invasion) in favor of peace talks, which torpedoed Humphrey and allowed Nixon to win. Nixon then continued the war as President until it was no longer financially or politically worth it.

We shouldn't go off-topic by spinning off into Conspiracy Theorist cyber-space. I'll post a picture but will say the problem with conspiracy theories is the numbers of people who would have to be involved and the information not leaking out. Pentagon Papers, My Lai and the Tuskegee syphilis study are examples of how information eventually leaks out. If Johnson were really involved, why didn't every Republican President since Nixon capitalize on it by revealing the "conspiracy" thereby ensuring a solid string of Republican legislators?

The only way to keep a secret is to either never tell anyone or kill all of the witnesses. It would be impossible to kill that many participants in conspiracies as massive JFK, 9/11 or "November 13th".

If the Republicans benefited from Johnson's actions, why would they sell him out? Besides, all it takes is Johnson and Nixon knowing it, outside of the CIA goons. And you can't seriously tell me that the CIA doesn't keep its secrets locked tighter than a chastity belt.

"The CIA", "the Government", "the Media". One consistency among conspiracy theorists is to treat a group of thousands, if not millions, of people as if it were a single-minded malevolent entity. They don't get, or at least admit, that those groups are composed of a very large and very diverse group of human beings.

You made an unsubstantiated and, IMO, ludicrous accusation that a Vice President of the United States and the CIA orchestrated the assassination of a President. Aside from the movie, JFK, where is the evidence?

For previously mentioned reasons, I find the likelihood that LBJ killed JFK implausible since no evidence has been revealed about one of the most shocking events in our history despite the fact we've had 9 Presidents in the past 50 years.

Was there more than one shooter? There might have been. Was LBJ, the CIA or even the Cubans behind it? Doubtful for the reasons mentioned.

The skinny little marine did not even hit Kennedy...the shot(s) came from in front, not behind (head being thrown back in video)...it was Mafia and CIA controlled...Kennedy pissed off a lot of people, one of them Johnson who had a freight line called "Sealand" and he wanted the contract to move items to Viet Nam. He got the contract after Kennedy's assassination. Cuba was a partial reason...look and see who was in charge of the CIA arm in/for Cuba at that time...gloryoskie it is Daddy Bush as a young man.
