of the one across to the right of it."
MARRION LEWIS BAKER, Dallas Police Motorcycleman, Presidential
escort man, close assassination witness, and a long time experienced hunter
(who had been on a hunting trip shooting rifles for the entire week prior to the
assassination), describing for the very first time in his Warren Commission
testimony the gunfire source from where the first audible muzzle blast or first
mechanically suppressed-fired “silenced” bullet bow shockwave that he remembered
hearing (or could hear) was fired from as he neared, closer and closer, the
Depository to his front left, and the "Dal-Tex Building" to his front right........
.... Shortly after BAKER testified with respect to being able to hear the first “shot” he remembered hearing (or could hear) as being fired from the Depository or the "Dal-Tex Building," the Warren Commission-lawyers, quickly, ceased recording his testimony, then, they went “off-the-record” for private (?) “discussions” among themselves .... During BAKER’s testimony (as with many key witnesses whose testimonies indicated the conspiracy) there were several such Warren Commission “off-the-record,” private, anxious lawyers gatherings.....
Mafia felon, Jim Braden, (a.k.a. "Jim Brading”) ---- who suddenly decided
to change his name a couple months before the assassination ----
was soon arrested by the police, after he was witnessed and
reported acting suspiciously inside its third floor. (Braden
may not have been a shooter, but, he still might have
been involved executing another function(s))....
The "Dal-Tex Building" is located adjacent and very close to....directly across
the street from....the lower-in-roof-height Texas School Book Depository.
It is very interesting to see that a man woman assassin
firing from behind the President from the "Dal-Tex
Building's" west face roof line, or firing from inside one
of its high floor open windows....of which there is no record the "Dal-Tex
Building" was ever methodically searched despite Mafioso Braden’s acting
suspiciously and his arrest . . . . that in a controlled MILitary OPeration
. . . . a MILOP . . . . this plan would carefully and deliberately
pre-select a key "Dal-Tex" roof line west face very precise location point
whereby any-and-all bullet trajectory(ies) would pass very, very close to
the Depository Warren Commission-apologists, supposed, lone-nut
"snipers lair” window bullet trajectories . . . . nearly precisely duplicating
.... “close enough for ‘government work’,” and 1963 ancient technology....
. . . . the very same vertical, horizontal, and lateral bullet angle
trajectories into and through President Kennedy for the military-controlled
medical autopsy that would, inevitably, be known and planned-for well
ahead of time that must follow the assassination.
Just as importantly, a carefully and deliberately pre-selected key "Dal-Tex"
roof line west face very precise location point would very precisely
duplicate . . . .
.... “close enough for ‘government work’,” and 1963 ancient technology....
. . . . the very same upper, right rear gunfire audible
location source as the very close Depository
Warren Commission-apologists, supposed, lone-
nut "snipers lair” window.
The Dealey Plaza map and photos confirm that with an assassin
firing from the "Dal-Tex" west face roof line at President Kennedy’s
Z-313 Elm Street location, his/her bullet would have passed very, very
close to the Warren Commission-apologists, supposed, lone-nut “snipers
lair” with a measurable difference laterally from the, supposed, “lone-nut” “snipers
lair” of a near matching 3 to 5 degrees.... and at Z-223 a near matching 6 to 8 degrees.

The Dealey Plaza map above and here details
how very close the Depository Building is to the "Dal-Tex
Building," and details theoretically timed bullet
trajectories impacting at Z-223 and Z-313, showing how
very close the vertical, horizontal, and lateral bullet
trajectories fired from the "Dal-Tex" are nearly perfectly
duplicated . . . .
.... “close enough for ‘government work’,” and 1963 ancient technology....
.... for the planned-ahead-for, inevitable, military-performed,
Presidential medical autopsy, and, just as importantly,
nearly perfectly duplicated the Depository-like very
close gunfire audible source. In fact, there are on
the record known close witnesses who stated that
they were attracted to and did initially react by looking
towards gunfire fired from the "Dal-Tex Building"....and,
there are witnesses who stated they were attracted to gunfire
from the closeby Depository....just as there are a significant
percentage of known witnesses who stated they were
attracted to gunfire fired from level with their ears from
the distinctly separate grassy knoll....
Interestingly, watch from minutes 32 to 42 and 46 to 51
within the 2009 film “The International” that visually details
what could have been the same simple operational plan on 11-22-63
of the "Dal-Tex Building" roof line fired bullet that strategically,
nearly perfectly, duplicated a Depository, supposed, “lone-
nut” “snipers lair” bullet trajectory.... (Kennedy assassination
documentaries are very transparently afraid to show The People....
and, once shown, therefore implant in the consciousness of The
People.... how very close the "Dal-Tex Building" bullet trajectory(s)
actually come to matching the Depository, so, they have never
shown a sniper’s targeting view from the "Dal-Tex" roof line)
Despite Mafioso Braden-Brading's arrest within minutes
for acting suspiciously while he was inside the "Dal-Tex
Building," his former name and the criminal records of his
dozens of felonies convictions were (later claimed) not
discovered by the Dallas police on 11-22-63....so....he
was soon let go by *someone* or *some* officials
within the Dallas police!
NOTE In 1952 Mafioso Braden-Brading had been personally
arrested in Dallas by Bill Decker -- the future 11-22-63 Dallas Sheriff....
NOTE In the realm of, “What ARE the astronomical odds?” .... when Robert Kennedy was assassinated nearly 5 years later, Los Angeles police soon discovered that the very same Braden-Brading was, co-ink-a-dent-ally, also residing very close by: less than 3 miles from the “Ambassador Hotel” that RFK was also assassinated inside of....

Then, his head was rotated even further leftward, until his entire upper torso of his body was slammed into, then bounced off, the seat backrest vertical cushion.

John F. Kennedy.
During the hearing, staff members played a tape recording for
the Committee with the explanation that they were about to
hear a rifle shot fired from the grassy knoll. After
listening to this tape the ranking member of the Committee,
Representative Samuel Devine of Ohio, rose in the chamber
to declare that he had a great deal of experience with firearms
and familiarity with rifle fire. He knew a gunshot when he heard
one, he said, and the sound alleged to be from the grassy knoll
could be many things, but it was clearly not a rifle shot.
The staff then explained to Mr. Devine that the tape
recording was of a test shot fired from the grassy knoll that
summer; not the Dallas Police tape from 1963.
The incident suggests two things. First, that one cannot
determine that a recorded sound is or is not gunfire merely by
listening with the naked ear. Secondly, it suggests that
Congressman Devine may not have been completely open-
minded to the concept under investigation by his Committee."

evidentiary indications of, at least, the second assassin.

I heard a . . . surprising noise, and [the President] reached
with both hands up to the side of his throat and kind of stiffened
out . . . And when he got down in the area just past me, the
SECOND SHOT hit which damaged, considerably
damaged, the top of his head. . . . That car took off in an
evasive motion . . . and was just beyond me when a THIRD
SHOT went off. The third shot really frightened me! It
had a completely different sound to it because it had really
passed me as anybody knows who has been in down under
targets in the Army or been shot at like I had been many times.
You know when a bullet passes over you, the cracking sound
it makes, and that bullet had an absolute crack to it. I do believe
that that shot was wild. It didn't hit anybody. I don't think it
could have hit anybody. But it was a frightening thing to
me because here was one shot that hit him, obviously; here
was another shot that destroyed his head, and what was the
reason for that third shot? That third shot frightened me more
than the other two, and I grabbed the boy and threw him on the
ground because I didn't know if we were going to have a
'shoot-'em-up' in this area." . . . . "I was telling them that there
were rifle shots and that they came from up in the corner of the
School Book Depository or up in the corner
of the building across from it."
that opens with the ZAPRUDER film kill zone attack sequence segment
cropped in on President KENNEDY that plays at approximately 72 % of actual average speed, and is initially accompanied by an 11-22-63 audio recorded description of President KENNEDY's instantaneous reaction to his being bullet impacted with the first shot, as seen and remembered being heard (or could hear) by extremely close assassination eyewitness, Mr. CHARLES BREHM , the WWII, D-Day, U.S. Army Ranger, battles experienced veteran . . . . Several times Mr. BREHM, as did many close witnesses, details President KENNEDY’s nearly instantaneous reaction to his being impacted with the 1st audible muzzle blast, or with the 1st mechanically suppressed-fired bullet bow shockwave . . . . Also in this video, the ZAPRUDER film segments are followed by the kill zone end-of-attack sequences from the films captured from opposite ZAPRUDER's location by MARIE MUCHMORE and ORVILLE NIX, SR.
"Another eyewitness, Charles Brehm, said he was 15 feet away from the President when
he was shot. 'He was waving, then the FIRST shot hit him and that awful look
crossed his face.' "
. . . . and that military veteran BREHM . . . .
"seemed to think the shots came from in FRONT of, or, BESIDE the President."
(CHARLES F. BREHM, a combat gunfire experienced, United States Army Ranger, World War
II, D-Day veteran, & very close Dealey Plaza attack witness
(quoted to the "Associated Press," 11-22-63))
BREHM said that A THIRD SHOT FOLLOWED and that all three shots were relatively close together. BREHM stated that he was in military service and he has had experience with bolt-action rifles, and he expressed his opinion that the three shots were fired just about as quickly as an individual can maneuver a bolt-action rifle, take aim, and fire three shots.
BREHM stated he definitely knew that the President had been shot and he recalled having seen blood on the President's face. He also stated that it seemed quite apparent to him that THE SHOTS CAME FROM ONE OF TWO BUILDINGS back at the corner of Elm and Houston Streets."
(CHARLES F. BREHM, a combat gunfire experienced, United States Army Ranger, World War II, D-Day veteran, & very close Dealey Plaza attack witness, in his F.B.I. statement, 11-24-63, describing, as did the sizeable majority of close witnesses, that the first audible muzzle blast or mechanically suppressed-fired bullet bow shockwave that he remembered hearing (or could hear) struck President KENNEDY and the President immediately reacted to being struck . . . . BREHM also told the F.B.I. that the shots originated from either the Depository, and/or, the right next-door "Dal-Tex Building," and, in the 1986 "Showtime: Mock Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald" he emphasized, again, the 2 buildings as possible shots sources of the shots he remembered/could hear))
"I saw a piece fly over in the area of the CURB where I WAS STANDING.
.... It seemed to have, have come LEFT , AND BACK.
.... Sir, whatever it was that I saw did fall, both, in that direction, and, over INTO THE CURB there."
(CHARLES F. BREHM, a combat gunfire experienced, United States Army Ranger, World War II, D-Day veteran, & very close Dealey Plaza attack witness during his 1966 videotaped "Rush To Judgment" documentary interview, VIDEO here, describing an object he watched that did fly behind and to the left of President KENNEDY....the same “back--and--to--his--left” direction, towards BREHM, that President KENNEDY's head and upper torso was also quickly moved nearly simultaneously towards when his head exploded)
. . . . Transparently revealing . . . .
Despite the fact (or, maybe, *because* of the fact) that the ZAPRUDER film is the only Dealey Plaza film
that documented the entire assassination, only 3 of the 7 Warren Commission "lone-nut"-commissars
deliberately chose to actually ever want to watch the film in motion, at least, one time....
albeit on 6-4-64, over 6 months after JFK was eliminated, yet as their
"investigation" was being wrapped-up . . . .
“. . . . and as I was shooting as the president was coming down from Houston Street making his turn, it was about a half-way down there, I heard a shot, and he slumped to the side, like this.”
(ABRAHAM ZAPRUDER then demonstrated President Kennedy being bullet impacted, then, leftward
turning and slumping, then, President Kennedy’s rapid leftward movements and
slumped posture seen approximately Z-203 to Z-260 and thereafter, that
was documented in the ZAPRUDER film)
“. . . . Then, I heard another shot or two, I couldn’t say whether it was one or two, and I saw his head practically open up - all blood and everything - and I kept on shooting.”
In contrast to President KENNEDY, Mrs. KENNEDY, and JOHN CONNALLY’s abrupt, discontinuous, and rapid reactions that occurred nearly in unison within less than 1-second of each other from Z-155 to Z-169, all of the occupants of Vice President LYNDON JOHNSON’s light silver-blue convertible who time stamped their location when the attack started and they heard the first shot they could hear (and further supported by many additional close witnesses in their follow-up murder-cade vehicles who also time stamped their location when the attack started) have stated that their car had already completed their turn onto Elm Street, and, further detailed that their JOHNSON convertible had already completed straightening out when the first “shot” volley was fired (albeit the first audible muzzle blast, or, the first "silenced" mechanically suppressed-fired super-sonic bullet bow shock N-wave, or, the first "silenced" mechanically suppressed-fired sub-sonic bullet that he/she was able to hear, or, that they remembered hearing).
Many witnesses very similarly compared the first “shot” that they remembered hearing (or, could hear) to a vehicle backfire and/or a firecracker, and many witnesses stated that it sounded distinctly different than the follow-up vollies.
Additionally, the Warren Commission was forced to admit in writing in their report-canard (but its "lone-nut"-apologists are stuck in ever-transparent-denial about) that a distinct and (as the Warren Commission wrote), "substantial majority" of the many then-known witnesses and the many then-known weapons-experienced witnesses who remembered hearing (or could hear), at least, 3 shots also importantly detailed for us that the last two blasts these majority of witnesses remembered hearing (or could hear) were definitely bunched much closer together in time, than the first two blasts they could hear.
** the Warren Commission determined that the branches and thick foliages of leaves within the closeby
tree did not start to hide JFK from the targeting-view of anyone in the, supposed, "lone-nut" "snipers lair"
until Z-166/167, even though JFK had already, very rapidly, snapped his head 65 degrees to his right
within 0.16 second from Z-155 to Z-158 (after which military veteran JFK continued smiling widely)
“Our automobile had just turned a corner (the names of the streets are unknown to me) when I heard a bang which sounded to me like a possible firecracker—the sound coming from my right rear.”
(United States Secret Service Agent WARREN “Woody” W. TAYLOR in his 11-29-63 documented report....
TAYLOR was riding in the Vice Presidential Secret Service followup car that was right behind LBJ’s car....
TAYLOR confirms that (precisely like LBJ’s car) his car had also already completed its 120-degrees, long,
sweeping turn from Houston Street onto Elm Street.... THEN.... the 1st of 3 audible muzzle blasts
or mechanically suppressed-fired bullet bow shockwaves that TAYLOR remembered hearing (or could hear)
was fired. (and also exactly like a substantial majority of the witnesses, close witnesses, and weapons
experienced witnesses, TAYLOR stated that the 2nd and 3rd volleys of gunshot blasts were bunched much
closer together than the 1st and 2nd blasts that he could hear)
to the Assassinations Records Review Board Scientiffically
Verifying the Authenticity of the ZAPRUDER Film
When a bullet is triggered -- whether triggered without the muzzle end
attachment of a mechanical flash-suppressor, sound-suppressor "silencer,"
or, whether triggered with an attached mechanical flash-suppressor, sound-
suppressor "silencer" -- if the fired bullet travels at a supersonic speed greater
than the speed of sound of 1140 feet-per-second (at sea level at a
70-degree temperature), the bullet will create the resistance and
compression of air on and around the front tip of the hot bullet, and this
compressed air creates a bullet bow shockwave that expands in a
trailing cone behind the bullet nose tip that will result in a sonic-boom-like
loud “crack” being heard by witnesses located near and far from the bullet
When a bullet is triggered -- whether triggered without the muzzle end
attachment of a mechanical flash-suppressor, sound-suppressor silencer,
or, whether triggered with an attached mechanical flash-suppressor, sound-
suppressor silencer -- if the fired bullet travels at a sub-sonic speed less than
the speed of sound, the bullet will not create a loud ballistic “crack," but,
it still creates a “zipping," “whizzing” disturbance in the air that may, or may
not, be heard by witnesses located close to the bullet trajectory, but not
necessarily, ever, heard by other witnesses.
Since starting in the early 1900’s, the existence and continuing development by private companies and governments of "silenced" weapons have been on-going.
(in this nearby video, other unseen, audible muzzle blasts shots from further away
from the camera are also being loudly fired while the silenced weapon is fired)
(in this nearby video, other unseen, audible muzzle blasts shots from further away
from the camera are also being loudly fired while the silenced weapon is fired)
. . . . listen to the substantially less decibels-level sound documented in the (non-"Holly-weird") Real World, that are heard at their maximum decibels-level from a much closer couple yards away from the weapon.
Remember, in the videos you are hearing the "silenced" muzzle blast from very close by,
therefore, if you were standing a distance of 61’ to 265’, or further, away from a
weapon’s exposed muzzle end, or, away from a concealed, hidden weapon that
was fired from inside a sounds-absorbing room, the "silenced" muzzle blast sound
that you might be able to hear, if you heard it at all,
(and, that the attack strategy planner's
would know about to count on) would be much, much less
because of the noises combination's of the crowd clapping's, witnesses talking among
themselves, their cheerings, yellings, whistlings, the Dallas policemen's Harley Davidson
"Duo-Glide" (74 OHV) motorcycle's, and the additional noises cover of the reverberating
audible muzzle blast(s) of another assassin's non-"silenced", loud weapon(s).
Documented in the very important IKE ALTGENS photo # 6, seen above and available here, that is time stamped to have been snapped simultaneous with ZAPRUDER frame 255, Senator RALPH YARBOROUGH and “LADY BIRD” JOHNSON are clearly seen to, both, still be smiling happily and enthusiastically (along with a majority of the standing witnesses who also appear not aware of shots, still enthusiastically clapping, and/or happy), and, YARBOROUGH, “LADY BIRD,” ~ and LBJ ~ are all, still, documented to be sitting upright.... Even though the, current, Warren Commission-apologists theory mandates that 2 lone-nut shots had, supposedly, already been fired, and....
(from the 12-18-63 Secret Service report, and as claimed by then-Vice President LYNDON JOHNSON and SS Agent RUFUS YOUNGBLOOD . . . . But . . . . as clearly documented in the IKE ALTGENS # 6 photo (available for you here in a very clear, extremely large format) . . . . that was captured while the attack shots were still being fired, concurrent with ZAPRUDER frame # 255, YOUNGBLOOD is still sitting in his front seat, before he got atop LBJ, and, before he and LBJ each separately stated that they each had heard 2 more audible muzzle blasts and/or mechanically suppressed-fired bullet bow shockwaves AFTER Agent YOUNGBLOOD was already in the back seat....
Additional, very strong support that YOUNGBLOOD was also already sitting atop LBJ before the last 2 audible blasts/bow shockwaves could be heard comes from murder-cade witness, CLIFTON CRAWFORD CARTER, the Chief Advisor to LBJ.... Mr. CARTER was also a close passenger in the Secret Service vice presidential follow-up car directly behind LBJ and YOUNGBLOOD.... The Warren Commission report wrote in its chapter 2, page 52....
"Clifton C. Carter, riding in the Vice President's follow-up car a short distance behind, reported that Youngblood was in the rear seat using his body to shield the Vice President before the second and third shots were fired."
. . . . But . . . .
. . . . the, current, Warren Commission lone-nut-apologists theory mandates
that BEFORE frame Z-255, not one shot, but TWO Warren Commission lone-nut-shots
have had to have been already fired
to “fit“ into their, current, theory.
During commission tests, the Warren Commission, itself,
also determined that it required a MINIMUM of 2.80 seconds* to trigger a shot . . . .
. . . . and then . . . .
recycle the manual bolt to insert a new bullet into the chamber
. . . . and then . . . .
. . . . fire the follow-up bullet . . . .
. . . . and the commission tests to time the rifle in evidence manual bolt recycle time were not concerned with shooting accuracy……their recycle tests were only concerned with recycling the rifle in evidence as fast as possible . . . .
. . . . not even allowing MORE TIME when the just-fired rifle jumped off target . . . .
. . . . and even MORE TIME needed by an assassin to move the rifle back onto target . . . .
. . . . then . . . .
. . . . re-center the target
. . . . then . . . .
. . . . activate the rifle's double-pull trigger, to fire the next bullet down the barrel
* the F.B.I. test fired the rifle by shooting only at stationary targets.
Their tests determined an average of 2.3 seconds between shots. When the
F.B.I. weapons specialist was asked how much additional time it would have
required to re-aim the rifle, then re-acquire a moving target he estimated
it would require a minimum of another half-second, making the total
F.B.I.-estimated minimum time between shots 2.8 seconds
(HURCHEL JACKS, a Texas State Highway Patrolman and the driver of LBJ’s car, in his statement he gave to the Secret Service, that further supports the statements of LBJ, YOUNGBLOOD, and the ZAPRUDER film in that their car had already completed its turn onto Elm Street and straightened up, THEN, the first blast or shockwave that JACKS heard was triggered, and, further supports that AFTER Agent YOUNGBLOOD climbed on top of LBJ ~ something that YOUNGBLOOD has not done in the ALTGENS photo # 6 concurrent with Z-255 ~ there were 2 more shots fired)
“[we were] going down a hill, and suddenly there was a sharp, loud report. It sounded like a shot. The sound seemed to me to come from a building on the right above my shoulder. A moment passed, and then two more shots rang out in rapid succession.”
wife, CLAUDIA “Lady bird”
JOHNSON, in her book, “A White
House Diary” that was written from her
personal notes she wrote right after the assassination.
.................... Her statement that their car was already "going
down a hill" when she heard the first shot she remembered hearing
(or could hear) also further supports and strengthens her fellow witnesses first
"shot" time stamping that they had already completed the sweeping turn from Houston Street
onto Elm Street, their car had already straightened-out, and, was already going downhill because the
"going down a hill" Elm Street location starts at a very specific point that is directly in front of the Depository - not
back at the start of the intersection turn at their location clearly documented in the ZAPRUDER film at Z-150 to Z-160....
.... She also supports the substantial majority of “Lady bird's” Dealey Plaza co-witnesses in that the last two shots she could hear
were rapidly bunched together - not further apart than the first two shots - as the Warren Commission-apologists, current, theory mandates.
“When the motorcade passed she was looking at Mrs. KENNEDY who was looking to the other side of the car. The President was looking in her direction and she had waved. She heard the shot fired as the President was waving. Thereafter she heard two additional shots, shots which seemed to have come from right over her head. She said she looked up and saw nothing.”
(close witness PATRICIA ANN LAWRENCE (who soon married, and her last name became DONALDSON), in her 11-24-63 statement to the F.B.I. .... LAWRENCE was standing on President KENNEDY’s side of the limousine, along the north Elm Street curb point that was out from nearly the direct center of the Depository .... Mrs. KENNEDY was, indeed, “looking to the other side of the car” until Z-169 to 170, then she fairly quickly first started turning her head rightward, and, “as the President was waving” is time stamped exactly to after when President Kennedy was already in the act of the wave that started after Z-170 ~~ when the thick foliages and branches of the large tree had already blocked ~~ and still blocked ~~ anyone in the commission-apologists, supposed, “lone-nut” “snipers lair” from being able to view or target him)
evenly spaced. Most witnesses recalled that the second and third
shots were bunched together"
(Warren Commission report, page 115)
(Warren Commission commissioner ALLEN DULLES, admitting that 5 of 6 witnesses (an 83% clear majority)
of the witnesses the commission knew of and interviewed stated that the last two audible blasts
and/or bullet bow shockwaves that they could hear were bunched much closer together
than the first two blasts/shock waves they could hear)
“As soon as President KENNEDY's car passed where she was
standing, she and Mrs. SPRINGER turned away and started
walking north towards Elm Street. At about the time they
reached the curb at Elm Street, she heard a loud report
and thought it was fireworks. There was a pause after the
first report, then a second and third report almost at the
same time, and then a pause followed by at least one and
possibly more reports. The noise seemed to come from up in
the air, but she never looked up in that direction."
(12-4-63 voluntary statement to the F.B.I. by very close Dealey Plaza witness Mrs.
ELIZABETH CAROLYN WALTHER . . . . Shortly after watching 2 men, each armed with
a weapon, up on the same floor, near each other in the same area of the Warren
Commission's, supposed, "lone-nut" "snipers lair," then after her watching President KENNEDY
drive past them, Mrs. WALTHER and her friend were walking directly towards the Texas
School Book Depository. When she was at the Houston-Elm southeast corner across from
the Depository she remembered hearing (or could hear) 4 audible muzzle blasts or "silenced"
bullet bow shockwaves with the 2nd and 3rd audible muzzle blast/bullet bow shockwaves
bunched closer together than the 1st and 2nd, and, the 2nd and 3rd blast/shock waves
bunched closer together than the 3rd and 4th. Though the Depository was directly in front of

"By the time President KENNEDY had reached the Thornton Freeway sign,
a shot was fired and Mr. MOORE observed the President slumping
forward in the Presidential car. Mr. MOORE heard two more shots
fired, however, the President was out of Mr. MOORE's sight at the
time the last two shots were fired."

"As we turned off Houston onto Elm and made the short little dip to the left going down grade, as I said, we were away from buildings, and were there was a sign on the side of the road which I don't recall what it was or what it said, but we no more than passed that and you are out in the open, and there is a report like a firecracker, pop. And I turned my head to the right."
(ROY KELLERMAN, Secret Service Agent, front seat passenger in the Presidential limousine, describing how after he heard the first shot he remembered hearing (or could hear), he then turned his head to the right.... per KELLERMAN’s references, he was documented to his being even with the Thornton Freeway sign at Z-188, then, he was even with the Stemmons Freeway sign at Z-243.... Importantly, KELLERMAN is also documented in the ZAPRUDER film when he came back into view from his being hidden by Stemmons Freeway sign, to his already being turned to his right when he came back into view . . . . and per his testimony he THEN heard 2 more shots . . . .

After hearing the first shot he remembered hearing (or could hear), KELLERMAN further, and simply, detailed for us,
(documented in the ZAPRUDER film, Agent KELLERMAN, clearly, did not even start his left turn rearward to look over his shoulder at the KENNEDY’s and CONNALLY’s until AFTER Z-246, (accelerating his turn at Z-253) then, per his above testimony, he heard 2 more audible muzzle blasts and/or mechanically suppressed-fired bullet bow shockwaves sometime after Z-246, exactly the same as YOUNGBLOOD, and exactly the same as many additional close witnesses and many additional close weapons-experienced witnesses, have all stated, testified, and maintained . . . . ROY KELLERMAN, Secret Service agent in Presidential limousine, in his original Treasury Department Secret Service report dated 11-29-63, and Warren Commission report-canard, volume 18, page 724)
KELLERMAN further helps us to narrow and pinpoint when he heard the additional
2 blasts and/or shockwaves when he commission-testified,
"So, in the same motion I come right back and grabbed the speaker and said to the driver, ‘Let’s get out of here, we are hit!,’ and grabbed the mike and I said, ‘Lawson, this is Kellerman,’ --this is Lawson who is in the front car-- [LAWSON was in the “lead car," ahead of the limousine] ‘We are hit; get us to the hospital immediately.’ Now, in the seconds that I talked just now, a flurry of shells come into the car.”
. . . . documented in the ZAPRUDER film, Agent KELLERMAN,
clearly, starts his head and upper torso turn towards
the front at Z-286, and after Z-286 is when he is seen
to have, then, grabbed the radio microphone.... then....
KELLERMAN heard “a flurry of shells.”
When asked by Warren Commission-lawyer SPECTER if he could describe the sounds of the flurry of shots that came into the limousine at the end of the attack, KELLERMAN testified,
"if I recall correctly these were two sharp reports, sir."
Did they sound different from the first shot?, asked SPECTER.
"Yes. Definitely. Very much so." KELLERMAN testified.
KELLERMAN further, and simply, detailed for us,
"Let me give you an illustration . . . . You have heard the sound barrier, of a plane breaking the sound barrier, bang-bang? That is it. It was like a double-bang: Bang-bang."
(ROY KELLERMAN, Secret Service Agent in the Presidential limousine, describing how rapidly bunched close together were the last 2 blasts and/or bow shockwaves that he heard (or could hear) from less than 10’ away from JFK. . . . .

…… then ……
……his hearing the first shot that he remembered hearing, (or, the first shot that that he could hear)……
…… then ……
……Mr. MacNEIL time stamped for us in valuable shots time stamp sequence detail that……
…… in the exact same amount of time it took for the first gunshot volley blast sound to travel to him……
…… for the sound to reach his ears……
…… for the amount of time it took MacNEIL to neurologically interpret that first loud, startling sound ……
…… during the amount of time consumed that it then also took Mr. MacNEIL and his co-witnesses to ask and finish asking out loud to each other……
“ ' What was that ? '
' Was that a shot ? '
' Was that a backfire ? '
and there was time for us to exchange [those sentences] ”
…… then ……
…… the second shot volley Mr. MacNEIL heard was fired……
. . . . and as Mr. MacNEIL clearly demonstrates and time stamps
the 3rd audible muzzle blast/"silenced" bullet bow shockwave he heard (or could hear) nearly immediately
followed very closely the second heard blast/shock wave in approximately 1-second
(NOT the Warren Commission-apologists vastly different shots time stamp theory of
some 5-seconds between its 2nd and 3rd shot volley's)……
...... that Mr. MacNEIL, like a substantial majority of the witnesses, also very similarly/exactly described . . . .
“and then there were two shots, close together”
.... then, MacNEIL yelled, “That was a shot!," and they told their press bus driver to stop the bus so they could get out . . . . Mr. MacNEIL has also spoken about the motorcade, and that during the early part of the motorcade he had dozed off to sleep and he had a daydream. In his dream, he heard a gunshot, then, he got out of the bus and chased the shooter . . . . In reality, when the shots were fired in Dealey Plaza, MacNEIL did get out of the bus and ran to the grassy knoll.…
A very large, majority percentage of the Dealey Plaza witnesses confirmed
and distinctly recalled this exact same shots pattern that the last 2, heard, shots
were fired much closer together than the first two shots that could be heard......
...... and several of these “last 2 shots very closely
bunched” witnesses detailed even further that the
last 2 shots were much too closely bunched together
to have been fired by just one, manually operated,
...... In the video Mr. MacNEIL, as have several witnesses, actually demonstrates the
very close timing of those last two shots being much too closely bunched together for
only one manual bolt-action rifle.
.... the, Warren Commission lone-nut-apologists theory mandates, and can only allow, one lone-nut shot after Z-225....
. . . . and . . . .
.... the, Warren Commission lone-nut-apologists theory mandates, and can only allow, that the time between their, supposed, “lone-nut” 2nd and 3rd shots was 43% further apart (90 Zapruder frames between Z-223 and 313) than his time between his 1st and 2nd shots (63 Zapruder frames between Z-160 and 223) ....
. . . . meaning . . . .
.... the Warren Commission lone-nut-apologists are forced to constantly live in denial, yet, they simultaneously, try to, contend that every one of the many dozens of the actual witnesses who could hear at least 3 blasts/shock waves (or more), and, every one of the actual weapons experienced witnesses who could hear at least 3 blasts/shock waves (or more) stated and/or testified that the last 2 shots they could hear were bunched much closer together than the first 2 shots they could hear were, ALL, collectively, ‘wrong’ and ‘mistaken.’

" were right next to me, "
( ^ All of the above were stated by ROBERT "Bobby" WELDON HARGIS (b.1932, d.2014), Dallas Police motorcycleman and Presidential limousine escort on 11-22-63, then, printed in the 11-23-63 New York Daily News, and printed in the 11-24-63 New York Sunday News)
HARGIS was not sure if the President's head exploded with the 2nd or 3rd audible muzzle blast and/or mechanically suppressed-fired "silenced" bullet bow shock N-wave of the 3 that HARGIS remembered hearing (or could hear).
His motorcycle was located only 14' to President KENNEDY’s back and left when the President's head initially exploded at Z313.
HARGIS stated that after the “first explosion” that he remembered hearing (or could hear), he then immediately turned his head towards the limousine ~~~~ as documented in the ZAPRUDER film, HARGIS first gradually starts turning his head towards the limousine starting at Z-202 to 203 ~~~~ THEN, he remembered hearing (or could hear) 2 more gunshots volleys.
When the President’s head did explode, HARGIS also stated that it, definitively, physically felt that he was suddenly struck by something with so much force that he felt that he had also been shot.
In fact, even though just prior to the President’s head exploding HARGIS had been accelerating slightly faster than his fellow 3 other Presidential limousine motorcyclemen, right after the President‘s head explodes HARGIS is the very first cyclist who suddenly and very rapidly braked his cycle to a near stop: possibly/probably in his quick reaction to his feeling that he had been struck with something hard enough that it felt like he had been shot ~ exactly as he stated on 11-22-63....

in front of the Depository and the "Dal-Tex Building." (additionally, in his 2011

One of the pages in our archive reveals that in a dispatch sent about 25 minutes after the
assassination, Mr. Smith reported “Some of the Secret Service agents thought the
gunfire was from an automatic weapon fired to the right rear of the president's
car, probably from a grassy knoll to which police rushed.”
No other news reports or witness interviews are known to contain the phrase “grassy knoll”
at that time. In fact, tapes of local news coverage reveal that “grassy knoll” was later
repeated by a few other reporters for several hours until investigators became convinced
the shots originated from the old Texas School Book Depository. Yet it remains a
historical fact that police and spectators immediately ran to the grassy knoll, not to the
Depository building. And UPI's Merriman Smith reported it first.

relation to my location on the NORTH SIDE of the Elm street curb.
My observation of JFK's re-action to the FIRST SHOT (I WAS STILL
LOOKING AT HIM) was that he INSTANTLY RAISED HIS ARMS
(ACTUALLY I COULD ONLY SEE HIS RIGHT ARM) - (HIS BODY +
HEAD OBSCURRED MY VIEW OF HIS LEFT ARM) - TO A
POSITION PARALLEL WITH THE GROUND, BUT BENT AT THE
ELBOW. MY CLOSE SCRUTINY of the "Z" film tells me that JFK is
apparently UNHIT prior to passing behind the highway sign, but, of
course, his arms are moving UPWARD as he emerges from behind
I SEEM TO RECALL JFK WAS CASUALLY WAVING to the very
sparse crowd in Dealey Plaza as he approached my location. My
feeling is that he was hit in the neck at about frame #208 to #210
in the "Z" film + that is only a FRACTION of a second AFTER HE
DISAPPEARED BEHIND the sign - or possibly at the VERY
INSTANT of moving behind the "LEADING EDGE" of the SIGN!!!
Gerald Posner thinks (his book, "Case Closed") that the FIRST SHOT
hit a tree limb and missed JFK, but, I disagree EMPHATICALLY. I am
TOTALLY CONVINCED the FIRST SHOT HIT JFK in the back of the
lower neck!!! Hence his reason for raising his hands up to his face -
HE WAS HIT in the NECK + his IMMEDIATE RESPONSE WAS TO
GO TO THAT GENERAL AREA WITH HIS HANDS!!!
. . . .
President KENNEDY was closest to Mr. BRANDT at ZAPRUDER film frame Z-207 to 208, and that was
nearly the exact same Z-210 instant when JFK emerged from being hidden under the large oak tree, out
of the targeting-view by anyone in the Texas School Book Depository Warren Commission-apologists,
supposed, lone-nut "snipers lair”, but at the same instant JFK had already started to quickly react
to his having just been impacted with the first bullet to hit him .... After Z-207 the limo and President
KENNEDY were moving more and more to Mr. BRANDT’s right, and at Z-225 to 235 (precisely 1.0 to 1.5
seconds later) JFK had already also then rapidly reacted and raised his arms upward, parallel to the
ground, with his elbows rapidly splayed outward,
.... that mandates the lone-nut first shot occurred approximately Z-150 to Z-160,
approximately 73’ to 64’ to Mr. BRANDT’s left, which was 73’ to 64’ before
President KENNEDY had even reached Mr. BRANDT........
(JOHN "Chick" HARVEY TEMPLIN, stated to the "Dallas Morning News," 11-22-00
.... Thank You + Hat tip to PATRICK SPEER
Mr. TEMPLIN detailing for us that he watched and reactions-stamped
((as did many of his additional close co-witnesses)) President
KENNEDY immediately and very quickly react to his being bullet-
impacted with the first audible muzzle blast or the first
"silenced" bullet bow shock N-wave of the 3 shots volleys
that Mr. TEMPLIN remembered hearing (or could hear). Mr.
TEMPLIN, a longtime very experienced outdoorsman hunter
and fisherman, stated to me that JFK was already 25' to 30'
past Mr. TEMPLIN's precise attack location when the very first
audible blast/shock wave he could hear was fired, then JFK
also very rapidly raised both of his arms protectively.
He stated that the second audible blast/shock wave he could
hear hit the president, exploding his head, and, that there
was a third shot that then followed. Mr. TEMPLIN is
documented in the ZAPRUDER film and additional films and
photos watching the attack while standing at the Elm Street
sidewalk north curb, immediately to the left of his friend,
ERNEST CARL BRANDT, another very close co-witness)
"President Kennedy had just looked in their direction and waved when she heard a rifle shot. Shortly thereafter, she heard another rifle shot and then a third."
(Mrs. RUTH HILLIARD DEAN, Depository employee and close Dealey Plaza witness who stood on the Depository
front steps directly beneath the Warren Commission-apologists, supposed, lone-nut “snipers lair," in her F.B.I.
statement dated 11-25-63 detailing, as did many close witnesses, the specific and important time stamping that
President KENNEDY was already in the act of his final wave that started after Z-171 (and, importantly,
while he was hidden underneath the large tree and out of the targeting-view by anyone
in the Warren Commission-apologists, supposed, lone-nut “snipers lair”) when the first shot
was fired that Mrs. DEAN remembered hearing (or could hear).
"As I mentioned before, the sound, I thought it was a backfire in the cavalcade from down the hill; down the hill toward the underpass...."
(Assassination witness JAMES N. CRAWFORD in his testimony to the Warren Commission about the first
shot he could hear .... Mr. CRAWFORD stood at the southeast corner of Houston and Elm streets,
approximately 104' east of the Texas School Book Depository .... Despite his location well east of
the Depository, he testified that the 3 shots that he could hear were fired from west of
the Depository, "down the hill toward the underpass"
.... Importantly, "down the hill toward the underpass" was lower than Mr. CRAWFORD's ears, while the
Depository's sixth floor, far southeastern window was at an approximately 62 degrees different
angle to his right, and, 56' above his ears .... Mr. CRAWFORD further testified in detail that
the yellow Secret Service car (the vice presidential Secret Service follow-up car, behind LBJ's car,
in which Secret Service Agent WARREN “Woody” W. TAYLOR was riding) "had already gone around the corner,"
solidly supporting Agent TAYLOR's statement that TAYLOR's car, behind LBJ's car, had already gone around
the corner from Houston and completed his turn onto Elm Street when the first shot he could hear was
fired. (the current Warren Commission theory mandates that LBJ's car AND Agent TAYLOR's
follow-up cars were BOTH located just before their left turns off Houston Street, directly in
front of Mr. CRAWFORD, when the first "lone-nut" shot was fired) .... Additionally, Mr. CRAWFORD
testified that after he heard the first and second shots, the third shot, "followed very quickly" ....
After hearing the third shot he was looking around the plaza then looked up and caught a fleeting
glimpse of human movement in the Depository's sixth floor, far southeastern window)
"Mrs. MOONEYHAM heard a gunshot and observed President KENNEDY slump to the left of the seat of the car. At the time of the initial shot, Mrs. MOONEYHAM believed that a firecracker had gone off. Following the first shot, there was a slight pause and then two more shots were discharged, the second and third shots sounding closer together."
(Warren Commission exhibit 2098. Dealey Plaza assassination witness
LILLIAN MOONEYHAM who watched from the second floor of the
Dallas County Courts Building)
"I looked and saw the president, I thought, duck. Evidently, he was slumping at the time."
(PIERCE MORRISS ALLMAN, Dallas "WFAA" reporter and very close Dealey Plaza witness, stated
11-22-63 very shortly after the assassination when ALLMAN was recorded (at the
5 minutes, 45 seconds mark) stating that he remembered hearing (or could hear)
3 shots, and that President KENNEDY was already displaying his instantaneous reaction
to his already being bullet impacted when ALLMAN heard the first shot he could hear and
ALLMAN immediately looked at JFK)
shot was fired, and I thought I saw him slump down, but I am not
sure, and I didn't look any more then. I thought he was ducking then."
(Dallas Patrolman WELCOME EUGENE BARNETT who stood at the Texas School Book Depository side of the Houston-to-Elm Street intersection. Patrolman BARNETT's volume 7, page 541 Warren Commission testimony supports (as does also many of his Dealey Plaza co-witnesses) his observation that President KENNEDY was impacted with the first audible blast or bullet bow shockwave of the 3 that Patrolman BARNETT remembered hearing (or could hear), and, that KENNEDY reacted immediately to his also being impacted.... In a 2013 interview Patrolman BARNETT also detailed to me that right after the first blast/shock wave that he remembered hearing, "I looked at the president and saw both of his arms come on up, very quickly, towards his neck." ((as Patrolman BARNETT and many other witnesses also watched JFK first raised his entire right arm upwards and off of the limousine's side in the Z-190's, then, he snapped his head approximately 90 degrees leftward within a very rapid 0.16 second from Z-203 to 206, then, he followed his right arm raising-up and head snap when he raised his left arm higher towards his neck starting at precisely Z-224 to 225, afterwhich he slumped his torso leftward and downward)) .... Exactly as he Warren Commission-testified, Patrolman BARNETT also confirmed to me that he did not hear any echoes from any shot, even though he was standing 39' from the Depository's south face)
"Close Attack Witness JUNE DISHONG
Details President KENNEDY Passing
Only 20' from Her at
Zapruder Film Frame 222" ....
Close attack witness Mrs. JUNE DISHONG keenly watched from her Elm Street north curb exact location when President KENNEDY passed his closest to her and she heard the first of 3 "shots" (albeit audible muzzle blasts, and/or, mechanically suppressed-fired bullet bow shockwaves, and/or, the first of 3 volleys of very closely-bunched "canyon" shots) that she remembered hearing (or could hear) at approximately when President KENNEDY was his most closest to her. She also watched the President immediately, very quickly react to his being impacted with the same first audible blast or "silenced" bullet bow shockwave that DISHONG remembered hearing (or could hear). All day on 11-22-63 Mrs. DISHONG hand wrote into her portable journal for us her very vivid observations, including her very detailed, salient attack observations, when Mrs. DISHONG heard the first of her remembered 3 blasts or bow shockwaves precisely when President KENNEDY was his exact closest to her, at only 17' away. Even though she was a normally very gregarious, very talkative person with her Family, Loved Ones, and her friends, her daughter expressed to me that JUNE almost never spoke of her being a very close witness to President KENNEDY’s shooting because it greatly saddened her for the rest of her life. Shortly after Mrs. DISHONG passed-on, her daughter discovered her Mother's 11-22-63 hand written, detailed observations in her journal. After speaking with her daughter, she agreed to provide me with Xeroxes of the 10 pages of the observations her Mother wrote starting early on the morning of 11-22-63 (her journal has now been donated to and can be viewed online at the following "Sixth Floor Museum in Dealey Plaza" webpage, in the right hand column. I have also provided a transcript of it for you, here). Read the detailed, moving words of the woman, forever documented in the ZAPRUDER film as the 4th woman seen to the left of the "Stemmons" freeway sign, as President KENNEDY is first bullet impacted (not necessarily when he was first shot at) and President KENNEDY immediately instantaneously reacted to his being impacted, when the President passed very, very close to Mrs. DISHONG.
also very importantly, specifically, pinpointed President KENNEDY's location....
“There is a column in the plaza that blocked my view
for a second. I think the first shot was when
my view was blocked.”
Dr. GLOVER’s very simple, straightforward, and very detailed statement above further strongly supports and synchronizes with the clear majority of the many key, close witnesses, and, the key, close weapons-experienced witnesses....
Dr. GLOVER stood elevated up on a cement pedestal that surrounds the North Reflecting Pool lower wall. Her precise location is photo-grammatically determined for my following scaled, accurate Dealey Plaza map with easily seeing her and her location in the films captured by ROBERT HUGHES.... MARK BELL.... and ELSIE DORMAN while Dr. GLOVER, wearing her turquoise-blue jacket, was standing up on what is now, and forever, known as “Glover’s pedestal.”
click here to enlarge the map in a followup window
Very, very significant, and exactly as Dr. GLOVER stated to me in her detailed assassination observations, as documented on the above precisely scaled map, President KENNEDY was first blocked out of her view when the pyracantha tree foliage first started to block JFK from her view at Z-174 to 175. That same Z-174 to 175 instant is when Dr. GLOVER’s view of JFK was first blocked out of her view because of the pyracantha tree foliage edge. That pyracantha tree is labeled “TGt-1” on my scaled map. That same pyracantha tree is also seen in the ZAPRUDER and other films and photos, and it is located a few feet west of the large, tall, five-sided cement column that also blocked Dr. GLOVER’s view of the President.
If the pyracantha tree did not first block her view of JFK at that instant (exactly as Dr. GLOVER stated), about one-third of a second after the pyracantha tree first blocked her view then the nearby, same tall column’s north, pointed side would have definitely first blocked President KENNEDY from her view at Z-180 to 181. (labeled “TGc-1” for her line-of-sight on my DP map)
Then, as Dr. GLOVER stated, President KENNEDY would have become visible to her, again, just past the south side of the tall column, when the President was located at Z-217 to 218 (labeled “TGc-2” for her line-of-sight on my DP map)
Employing the standard AVERAGE running time of the Zapruder film of 18.3 frames-per-second, JFK would have been out of Dr. GLOVER’s view for exactly 2.3 seconds (if it was the pyracantha tree first blocked JFK from her view), or, for 2.0 seconds (if it was the column that first blocked JFK from her view)
I will also say that Dr. GLOVER’s key timing of the first shot that she heard (or *could* hear) that was fired between Z-174 and 218 is right in line with many of the close witnesses and close weapons-experienced witnesses who stated that the happily smiling President, first, had started his waving at Z-170 to 171), and after he had first started waving, it was THEN that the first shot they remembered hearing (or *could* hear) was fired and President KENNEDY immediately, dramatically, physically quickly reacted to it impacting him by ultra-rapidly snapping his head 87-degrees from right to left at Z-203 to 206, then, shaking his head, raising his arms/hands, and then facing back towards and settling into leaning forward and towards his wife before his head first exploded. (which Dr. GLOVER also watched happen, describing it as, “From my perspective, the plume of brains and blood sparkled a little in the Texas sun. I told my mom someone threw sparklers in the car!!!!”)
. . . . Additionally, while speaking with Dr. GLOVER I nearly immediately had a sense about something with respect to her that after our first of many conversations I then checked several times to confirm and positively make sure.... Dr. GLOVER was absolutely thrilled when I shared with her my discovery that her turquoise-blue coated shoulder, arm, and hand is also actually visible in several frames of the ZAPRUDER film, in the exact location where she stated she was standing!
DR. TONI GLOVER's view of President KENNEDY blocked by a tall column when she could hear a blast/shock wave
able to see President KENNEDY from Z-180 to 218, when she heard a shot, is in
very stark contradiction to the Warren Commission lone-nut-apologists,
current, revised lone-nut, supposed, theory that mandates the lone-nut first
shot (fired into a close by tree) at Z-150 to Z-160
(before the tree hid JFK from the "lone-nut") . . . .....
. . . . and . . . .
"When I turned around to wave the Vice President's car to come closer, at same time, trying to determine where shots had come from, I said, pointing to SA McIntyre, 'They got him, they got him,' . . . . "
(EMORY ROBERTS, Dallas motorcade Secret Service Shift Leader, who rode just 20' directly
behind President KENNEDY during the attack, in his 11-29-63 Secret Service report)
ROBERTS very close description of the President’s instantaneous bullet impact
reaction to the first shot that ROBERTS remembered hearing (or could hear)
is what is also documented in the ZAPRUDER film, also showing the
President’s first bullet impact immediate reactions at Z-190 to
240 when he snaps his head towards Mrs. KENNEDY,
then raised his arms and leaned towards his wife.

CONNALLY's shot off Mexican Peso shirt sleeve cuff link, and the many key forensic considerations and implications of CONNALLY’s gold cuff link being struck and shot off by an assassination bullet has “accidentally” vanished, ((or was deliberately vanished)) as have several other key physical forensic evidence pieces, out of the Warren Commission "lone-nut," government-controlled evidence)
