Of those whom much is given, much is required, and when
at some future date the high court of history sits in judgment on each
of us, recording whether in our brief span of service we fulfilled our
responsibilities to the state, our success or failure in whatever office
we hold will be measured by the answers to four questions:
First, were we truly men of courage?, with the courage to
stand up to one's enemies, and the courage to stand up, when
necessary, to one's own associates. The courage to resist public
pressure as well as private greed.
Second, were we truly men of judgment?, with perceptive
judgment of the future as well as the past, of our own mistakes
as well as the mistakes of others, with enough wisdom to know
what we did not know, and enough candor to admit it.
Third, were we truly men of integrity? Men who never
ran out on either the principles in which we believed, or the people
who believed in us. Men whom neither financial gain nor political
ambition could ever divert from the fulfillment of our sacred trust.
Finally, were we truly men of dedication?, with an honor
mortgaged to no single individual or group, and compromised by
no private obligation or aim, but devoted solely to serving the public
good and the national interest.
Courage, judgment, integrity, dedication: These are the qualities
which, with Gods help, this son of Massachusetts hopes will characterize
our government's conduct in the four stormy years that lie ahead. Humbly
I ask His help in that undertaking, but aware that on earth His Will is
worked by men, I ask for your help and your prayers as I embark on this
new and solemn journey.

(JOHN F. KENNEDY)
as it was, then.…
.... “We dare not forget today ....
that we are the heirs of that first revolution.
Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike,
that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans.
Born in this century.
Tempered by war.
Disciplined by a hard and bitter peace.
Proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the
slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always
been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and
around the world.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall
pay any price,
bear any burden,
meet any hardship,
support any friend,
oppose any foe
to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
This much we pledge--and more.” ....
(John Fitzgerald Kennedy, presidential inaugural speech
segment, 1-20-61. Complete speech here )
“The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as
a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths
and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive
and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers
which are cited to justify it. ... And there is very grave danger that an announced
need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its
meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.”

Publishers Assocoation,” 4-27-61.... transcript .... video )

news, discoveries, and the macro and micro-detailed important key considerations
of the assassination of our President, John F. Kennedy.
I have worked within Teams of researchers, with individual researchers,
for group presentations, discussions, and the mass media. My research
is freely contributed and referenced by researchers in several TV
broadcast documentaries, on radio, in books, and by additional
researchers for their studies, printed research articles, and reports.
My personal time detailed assassination research instantly started over 42 years ago, on March 6, 1975, with Our People observing a pirated-copy of the Zapruder film during its first-ever public TV showing in-motion that was provided by Robert Groden on Geraldo Rivera’s very late at night, “ABC”-produced show, “Good Night America.” (Our People being able to view the Zapruder film in-motion was completely hidden and suppressed by the "Time-Life" corporate executive managers for nearly 12 years .... During the following decades we have further learned that "Time-Life" ((and additional outfit's of the lame-stream media)) before-during-after 11-22-63 have employed many, many thousands of now-known and still-unknown C.I.A.-domestic-contacts personnel and former C.I.A. operations officers)

I personally have requested to serve with was for Our United States Navy
aircraft carrier, U.S.S. John F. Kennedy, CV-67. (1967 to 2007

Right on up to the present day, I am a President Kennedy first generation
active research scholar that has been personally, publicly, and steadily
learning its macro and micro details and freely sharing discoveries with
respect to the elimination of President Kennedy.
I have communicated directly with 46** of the closest Dealey Plaza assassination
witnesses (including both of the attack-surviving wounded victims, Mr. James
Tague, and the Texas Governor, John Connally), and contacted scores of
additional witnesses to events and things observed before, during, and
after the attack. These witnesses are fairly easy to locate, and 90 to
95% will freely share their witnessed observations and salient details
with you, if and when, you will pro-actively simply contact them.
** I have recently pro-actively contacted the 42nd, 43rd, 44th, 45th, and 46th Dealey Plaza witnesses that
I have interviewed, and will soon be publicly providing for everyone their detailed observations and
experiences with respect to events, people, etc that they witnessed before, during, and/or
In 2006 the Mary Ferrell Foundation and JFK Lancer Research honored
my research with the New Frontier Award. This award was, "presented in
appreciation for Don's contributions of new evidence, and, furthering the
study of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy."
For 42+ years, right on up to the present day, I have been documenting a detailed and referenced chronological timeline of events and articles that starts in the mid-1800’s. (currently, the detailed timeline is more than 21,000 pages if printed). The timeline includes related events, persons, groups, places, suspects, etc, that funnel towards and into the assassination in Dallas, the known evidence in the case, key details of the assassination itself, highlights of and details for the many government-controlled investigation discoveries and reports during the decades (and links to the mega-thousands of pages for all of these government reports and its previously withheld classified macro and micro-details), and, our dedicated private citizen researchers personal time investigations, evidence, reports, and new discoveries.
Motivated by our friend and longtime dedicated researcher, Mrs. Mary Ferrell (along with our 1000's of additional, respected, dedicated, private personal time citizen researchers), in helping to continue and carry forward Mrs. Ferrell's research with respect to case evidence and witnesses, our timeline is supported with my very comprehensive and detailed, spreadsheets-sortable list of a total number of 11,627 persons consisting of named pre-, during-, and post-assassination witnesses, named professional and amateur pre-, during-, and post-assassination movie filmers and photographers, pre- and post-assassination investigators, scientists, and agents of various laws enforcement and intelligence agencies, un-named witnesses that named witnesses have testified-to and made referenced, detailed, related statements about, politicians, commissioners and their staff aides, and suspected masterminds, conspirators, accomplices, and assassins. For this list each witness has detailed information regarding their individual 11-22-63-related experiences, actions, re-actions and their precise location during the assassination (when he/she was filmed, photographed, known, reported, or claimed what was their location on 11-22-63 at 12:29:44 PM CDT). Each witness on this detailed list is also supported with their available key, documented government reports references, media-produced documentaries or programs, and private citizens written books and reports references, etc., with respect for his/her witness detailed observations that are directly related to the various governments agencies-gathered and (so far) publicly-released assassination evidence, Dealey Plaza shots source(s) location(s), the very key shots sequences timing of bunched, close together and/or spaced distinctly further apart volley’s of gunshots that were remembered and/or could be heard, and the evidence, important event(s), other witnesses, persons, and suspects that they witnessed before, during, and/or after the murder-elimination of President Kennedy.

Reveals critical, previously TOP SECRET government classified, previously hidden, and detailed examinations of the politically-motivated and politically-biased entity known as the “Hearings Before the President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy” (colloquially also known as the “Warren Commission," “Warren’s Follie's," and the “warrenatti-apologists report-canard”).
A report that was publicized only 6-weeks before the 1964 United States presidential election in which President Kennedy's benefactor, Lyndon Baines Johnson, (biography) was the Democrat's liberal candidate.
Exposes the craftings of the Warren Commission formation, its bureaucracies, its investigations, its investigators, what they avoided investigating, their deductions, and its biased speculations and stark, transparent evidence-contradictions.
very anxiously devised by
Lyndon Johnson, the primary assassination
benefactor (but not the only person and several powerful
groups of persons near the top of the many powers-that-be pyramid of those
who also greatly, further, gained and took benefits and additional benefit$ after JFK's elimination).
The very same Texas native-son, anxieties-filled Vice President Johnson who, well before the assassination, leading into the trip into Texas, and, funneling to November 22, 1963, and, on the same day of the Dallas attack, was the pinpointed focus and co-focus of many intense, on-going, United States federal investigations concerning his suspected and numerous felony crimes. (and all of these Johnson-focused criminal investigations soon, *simply*, after Kennedy was shot dead and eliminated while inside Texas ---- elevating Johnson to the presidency)
Among several additional considerations and motivations that have now been exposed, Johnson was a long time utterly ruthless power-obsessive, control-obsessive, and money-obsessive who also (since his childhood and before he was a politician) was maniacally-obsessed and very often repeated publicly that he would become a United States President.... and who, hidden out of The People’s “eye," Johnson absolutely hated both President Kennedy and, most especially hated (as did F.B.I. Director Hoover) JFK’s brother, Robert Kennedy.
Johnson initially hoped to only be sanitized by his F.B.I. , and then,
have the F.B.I. report be rubber-stamped. After multiple investigations were
strongly and repeatedly called for by citizens all across the United States and called
for by washDC politico’s inside its cocoon, Johnson, instead, crafted (behind locked-
doors guises at the height of the Cold War) with his many key politico-cronies, deliberately
and rapidly raised, then, on-goingly used, emphasized, and fearfully re-promoted and played
on all Our Peoples fears of the then-recent 1962, extremely dangerous crisis of the Cuba based,
very close by, dozens of Communist Russian missiles that were armed with 99 thermonuclear
bombs aimed directly at Our United States, and what liberal Johnson fearfully
would be 40-million
killed during the very first hour
(out of a total United States population in 1963 of 189-million souls),
escalating ultra-rapidly into an all-out nuclear World War III, and the nightmare's specter of mankind’s near total obliteration.
Decades-longtime F.B.I. Director JOHN EDGAR
HOOVER stated that the case of the
assassination of President
KENNEDY would always
We did not know it then,
but an additional 63 “smaller” tactical
thermonuclear weapons of lesser, still-vaporizing
yields were also deliberately moved by the Russians into
and near Cuba (making a total of 162 nuclear tipped weapons
in that small area) ~ and with the final decision and authorization
of detonation of each of those 63 weapons was given by Communist
Russian leaders to their individual Russian unit Commanders at-the-scene
if the Commander believed Cuba was approached too closely by sea, air, and/or
land by any liberating group attempting Cuba’s liberation out of Communists controls.
Johnson’s investigation also simultaneously and quickly cut-off several other independent investigations being constantly demanded by The People that Johnson knew that he and his federal government would have had little or no control over.
It has also been exposed that the Secret Service very quickly and anxiously took the murdered President’s body out of its legal Dallas jurisdiction; JFK’s body was anxiously whisked away by Secret Service Agents out of Parkland Hospital during a 10 to 15-minutes fight for absolute control over JFK’s forensic body. The struggle for President Kennedy's body was witnessed by many persons, who have detailed for us that several Secret Service Agents cussed and shoved officials, and also went so far as to draw, level, and very threateningly actually aim their weapons at the Dallas persons who demanded that the forensic autopsy be legally performed and completed in Dallas.
After taking total control over JFK’s body away from the Dallas County Coroner, and, after taking control over the investigation away from the Dallas police, Johnson then simultaneously placed his investigation into the hands to be totally monopolized and predominantly-controlled by one of Johnson’s many like-minded, long time friends (and Johnson’s long time washDC, literally, house-next-door neighbor) ---- who was also a Kennedy’s-loathing, government officials-blackmailing, definitely Mafia-friendly interacting-with and Mafia-co-opted and probably-Mafia-blackmailed corrupted-crony ---- J. Edgar Hoover, who had deliberately and repeatedly chosen while he was the autocratic dictator during his decades-long control of his regime to barely even acknowledge and barely prosecuted the ever-explosive growth of the murderous Mafia (a.k.a. “Cosa Nostra,” meaning “our thing” in Italian) during his more than 39-years before 11-22-63) ---- and as also clearly exhibited by LBJ, his neighbor and files-sharing, close friend Hoover was a "man" who was similarly just another extremely delusional and extremely dangerous power-mad-obsessive who never wanted to retire and give up his power as the F.B.I.'s Director.
chose to quickly soon give Hoover, exactly, what Hoover megalomaniacally-craved the most . . . . when Johnson
waived the then-mandatory retirement age of 70 for any and all non-elected government worker's
that Hoover was fast approaching within a year (and Hoover already knew that the Kennedy’s
were going to, simply, let his mandatory-retirement be enforced), and Johnson officially
gave-made Hoover the "F.B.I. Director-for-life" . . . .
.... washDC politico-speak-translation =
Johnson rewarded Hoover ~ and rewarded him within days
before Hoover’s lies-filled Warren Commission testimony ~ at the very beginnings of
their politically micro-manipulated-F.B.I. investigation
complete accuracy, but merely to substantiate
the hypothesis which underlies the conclusions
that Oswald was the sole assassin."
(Warren Commission lawyer, Norman Redlich, internal memo he sent to
Warren Commission general counsel, J. Lee Rankin, 4-27-64, during
the still-underway Warren Commission investigation)
Four of the seven Warren Commissioners, themselves ~ the majority ~ including Chairman Warren, himself, expressed doubts about the Commission's conclusions within a decade of their report.
In 1964, the New York Times quoted Warren's only public statement of doubt: that full disclosure was not possible for reasons of national security (Warren's statement was originally made to Dallas Morning News reporter Clint Richmond at Love Field the day Warren was in Dallas to interview Jack Ruby). But in 1976 the extent of Warren's private doubt became publicly known. It had been confirmed in January 1967, when columnist Drew Pearson told Warren about a conspiratorial lead involving C.I.A.-Mafia assassination plots. Rather than stand by the Commission's conclusions, Warren referred the information to Secret Service Director James J. Rowley, who testified that Warren "....said he thought this was serious enough ....and that the Warren Commission was finished, and he wanted the thing pursued, I suppose, by ourselves or the F.B.I." They were joined by a fifth Commissioner in 1978, when John J. McCloy told the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA), that "I no longer feel we had no credible evidence or reliable evidence in regard to a conspiracy . . . . "
FBI Attacks on Warren Commission Critics:
The Church Committee found that the FBI, on orders from the White House,
kept files on Warren Commission critics ---- American citizens who were
demanding a further probe into the assassination of John F. Kennedy. FBI tactics
included surveillance and keeping files on their sex lives, it was said to be
similar to the actions taken against members of the Civil Rights movement.

Gerald Ford (president of the United States from 1974 to 1977, editor’s note) was a member of the Warren Commission, Valéry Giscard d’Estaing resumes. Once I was making a car trip with him, he was then President as I was myself. I said to him: "Let me ask you an indiscreet question: you were on the Warren Commission, what conclusions did you arrive at?" He told me: "It's not a satisfactory [i.e., positive (ntr)] one. We arrived at an initial conclusion: it was not the work of one person, it was something set up. We were sure that it was set up. But we were not able to discover by whom."

This website homepages will help, greatly, in providing knowledge for you to separate the assassination’s key empirical facts away from the Warren Commission half-truths, truths, non-fictions, fictions, and the Warren Commission lone-nut-apologists and the federal-washDC government’s continued secrecy and outright wall of lies in the President Kennedy elimination ambush, so that you can determine your own, independent conclusions.
Brings the essential and critical assassination facts into the sharply focused bright lights and the ventilation's of The Truth for your considerations, which, in many instances, completely pierces and destroys Warren Commission and warrenatti-lone-nut-apologists and their under the very same bright lights of The Truth.
Helps towards your independent debunking of the commission and its lone-nut-apologists welters of their forever transparently exposed, deliberately misleading statements and misinformation-attempts, their mountain of assassination-coincidences . . . . their facts -- far too many of which completely contradict the Warren Commission "lone-nut-commissars, very own, investigatedfacts, the feckless Warren Commission-contrived dis-information-attempts and defensively-concocted media leaks in their (failed) attempt to craft and control The Truth to Our People. Exposes the Warren Commission errors of omissions, their claims that are unattended by evidence or analysis, their deliberate irregularities, their consistent pattern of damage control and their attempted evidence management-spin, their commissions of empirical evidence tainting’s, slanting’s, tampering’s, destructions, and preposterous un-related . It’s accurate and in-accurate assassination recreation tests, manipulations and altering’s, and their incomplete/deliberately-incomplete manipulated and altered witnesses statements and testimonies. Brings to light the suborning, intimidations, implied job threats, family members threats and death threats to witnesses (and in follow-up years, someone(s) still worried may have escalated these threats to staged-as-accidents deaths and outright murders of many key witnesses). The commission cowardly evasions by their not fully investigating with follow-up logical investigating of even their own findings, their deliberate Warren Commission-calculated-and-manipulated commissions of distortions, and, the commission and their dwindling percentage of apologists now transparently exposed, blatant, deliberate-and-pre-meditated outright fabrications and lies.
. . . . Stated by President KENNEDY to Mrs. KENNEDY in the early morning
of 11-22-63, in their "Hotel Texas" presidential suite.
Earlier LBJ, himself, had gone to the President, and during their last private
meeting ---- in what has been described as a very heated and very loud argument
that was not heard totally clearly, but enough of it was heard by
several witnesses waiting in the hallway outside JFK’s presidential
suite during its many rises and peaks in volumes, LBJ had argued to switch-out
JOHN CONNALLY from riding close to JFK in the limousine
in the Dallas murder-cade (CONNALLY was LBJ’s long time,
close Texas friend who was also his decades political-crony
who had managed all of LBJ s campaigns) .... LBJ had heatedly
argued with JFK to switch CONNALLY’s murder-cade seat
next to JFK in the limousine with LBJ’s long time political enemy,
the Texas Senator, RALPH YARBOROUGH ----
---- but ----
---- President KENNEDY refused to switch CONNALLY for YARBOROUGH, and then
LBJ was observed by the many witnesses storming furiously out of KENNEDY’s suite,
and his very quickly pump-walking away down the hallway. . . .
“I looked it up: One out of every four
Presidents has died in office.
I’m a gamblin’ man, darlin', and this is the
only chance I got."
(LBJ’s thinking while talking to “Time-Life magazine” owner CLARE BOOTHE LUCE about 20th century
U.S. presidents, and, his odds of becoming the president through a president’s death.
Quoted by Irwin and Debi Unger "LBJ: A Life," page 244)
many persons still do not, yet, know. . . . .
. . . . . that on the very same day
that President Kennedy was
eliminated in Texas,
the . . . .
main assassination benefactor from JFK's elimination,
(along with additional persons, additional corporations, and additional groups and washDC agencies that also benefitted)
and by 11-22-63, the absolutely-desperate,

. . . . . . a.k.a. . . . . . .
the ‘master of the senate’
the ‘senator from the Pentagon’
the ‘straw that stirs the drink’

and co-focus of
four on-going, active, and intense
United States federal criminal investigations
.... All of these LBJ-focused criminal investigations, *simply*,
after Kennedy was shot dead and eliminated while inside Texas ------ elevating Johnson
to his presidency .....…

Robert F. Kennedy Was Working Behind the Scene with LIFE magazine to Publicly Expose the Corruptions by Lyndon Johnson, Before the 1964 Election Campaign Started to Get Johnson Removed from the 1964 Presidential Ticket
“Beginning in later summer 1963 the magazine [LIFE], based upon information fed from Bobby Kennedy and the Justice Department, had been developing a major news break piece concerning Johnson and Bobby Baker. On publication Johnson would have been finished and off the 1964 ticket (reason the material was fed to us) and would probably have been facing prison time. At the time LIFE magazine was arguably the most important general news source in the US. The top management of Time Inc. was closely allied with the USA's various intelligence agencies and we were used after by the Kennedy Justice Department as a conduit to the public....The LBJ/Baker piece was in the final editing stages and was scheduled to break in the issue of the magazine due out the week of November 24th (the magazine would have made it to the newsstands on November 26th or 27th). It had been prepared in relative secrecy by a small special editorial team. On Kennedy's death research files and all numbered copies of the nearly print-ready draft were gathered up by my boss (he had been the top editor on the team) and shredded. The issue that was to expose LBJ instead featured the Zapruder film.”
