I am sure that you all are really busy but I thought I would provide some pre-conference and post-conference homework for our upcoming conference “The National Security State and the Kennedy Assassination.” Of course, the homework isn’t absolutely necessary but it would certainly make the conference more enriching and rewarding.
Keep in mind that this is not your usual type of JFK conference, which is usually oriented toward people who have spent years studying the Kennedy assassination. Our conference is going to be oriented toward the educated layman who is skeptical about the official narrative of the assassination, who has never delved deeply into the matter, and who is seeking truth and understanding about the assassination.
Our conference will be a big-picture, easy-to-understand examination of the assassination, especially in the context of the times in which it occurred. In the process, participants will learn about the Cold War, JFK’s foreign policy toward the Third World and how it differed dramatically from that of the Pentagon and the CIA, the beginning of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, the origin of America as a war state or national-security state, the vicious war that was taking place between Kennedy and the national-security establishment, especially in the context of such events as the Bay of Pigs, Berlin, and the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the significance of the fraudulent autopsy that the military conducted on Kennedy’s body.
I am fully aware that many, if not most, Americans living today were not even born in November 1963. For younger people today, the Kennedy assassination seems irrelevant, especially since all the participants are dead.
Nothing could be further from the truth. By the time this conference is over, participants will be able to easily see why an understanding into the Kennedy assassination and, to a larger extent, the national-security state, is imperative if we are ever to restore a free, peaceful, prosperous, healthy, and harmonious society to our land.
Our conference begins Wednesday, March 3, at 7:00 p.m. and continues weekly every Wednesday after that through April 21. Our conference website goes up soon. Registration will be required but admission is free. Please help us promote the conference by sharing information about it with your family members and friends, especially younger people who seek a better understanding of our nation’s history and legacy as a national-security state.
Here is my recommended reading as pre-conference and post-conference homework. If you have time to read only one book before the conference, I recommend making it JFK and the Unspeakable. But remember your school days: Start now! Don’t wait until the last minute. No last-minute, late-night, caffeine-filled pre-conference cramming! (But don’t worry: There will be no pop quizzes, term papers, or final exams.)
