There have been two official investigations. One concluded Oswald acted alone, the other that there was a conspiracy. After forty years, many of the key documents which could tell the whole story remain classified. Why, if it is an open and shut case? Why the secrecy, if Oswald was just a "crazed lone gunman"?
On this day in history, Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy — the 35th president of the United States — was assassinated while riding in an open-car motorcade in downtown Dallas, Texas.
The shocking event of 59 years ago happened near the end of JFK's third year as president.
Riding in the same car as Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy was Texas Gov. John B. Connally, as well as Connally's wife, Nellie Connally.
That same day, the suspect in the shooting, Lee Harvey Oswald, was arrested. Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in as president that day as well as the stunned nation absorbed the blow of so suddenly and violently losing its elected president.
‘Gunfire suddenly reverberated’
Crowds of excited people lined the streets of Dallas and waved to the Kennedys that day, as the JFK Library's website notes of the president's campaign event — one of several — that day in Texas.
President John F. Kennedy speaks to the nation in his inaugural address on Jan. 20, 1961, sharing what some consider his most famous statement: "And so my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will do for you, but what we can do for the freedom of man." (AP 1961)
A glimpse at what the Lake campaign might use as fodder for its lawsuits was shared with The Western Journal in the form of a report from Mark Sonnenklar about what the roving attorneys saw on Election Day. The Western Journal has not independently verified the claims in this report.
Sonnenklar said 10 roving attorneys out of 16 responded to a survey he sent them, and that his report covers 115 voting places out of the 223 places in Maricopa County.
Overall, he wrote, “72 of the 115 vote centers (62.61%) we visited had material problems with the tabulators not being able to tabulate ballots, causing voters to either deposit their ballots into box 3, spoil their ballots and re-vote, or get frustrated and leave the vote center without voting.”
“In many vote centers, the tabulators rejected the initial insertion of a ballot almost 100 percent of the time, although the tabulators might still accept that ballot on the second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth attempt to insert the ballot,” he wrote.
“However, many ballots were not able to be tabulated by the tabulators at all, no matter how many times the voter inserted the ballot. The percentage of ballots that were not able to beread at all by the tabulators ranged from 5% to 85% at any given time on election day, with the average being somewhere between 25 percent and 40 percent failure rates,” he wrote.
Sonnenklar noted that at many polling places, “the printer/tabulator issues persisted from the beginning of election day until the end of election day.”
Kyle Rittenhouse is teasing a potential future run for Congress.
Currently, he is only 19 years old and is thus not eligible to become a member of Congress. However, Rittenhouse posted a picture of the Capitol on his social media accounts and cheekily asked, "T-minus 5 years until this is my office?".
Essentially, the young Rittenhouse was suggesting that he might run for Congress and even win a seat in Congress in the future.
Rittenhouse was acquitted of five criminal charges related to the fatal shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber at a Black Lives Matter protest on August 25, 2020.
The EU can’t have its own puppets swashbuckling the high life and doing their own thing, can they?
Is it possible that the President of the European commission, Ursula von der Leyen is not quite as squeaky clean as some might assume? Do such lightweights, who define themselves by how much they fail to achieve, who come from the bowels of political obscurity in Germany rise to such prominence without a little help from powerful elites, masonic links and corrupt corporations?
The answer is of course. In fact, within the scope of the European Union and its institutions in Brussels and Luxembourg, this is largely the tradition: to either install puppets who serve powerful governments and their corrupt interests, or giant industry itself. Corruption rules.
And so it should come as little surprise that Ursula has been implicated in playing a murky role in a 35bn euro vaccine deal which stinks so much that it has the very dark powers in Brussels are working over time on a damage limitation plan to save the collective neck of the EU as it heads towards the abyss: its own elections in 2024, which are expected to have all time low voter turn out with far-right groups making a killing in the European parliament.
How the world appears all depends on whether your gaze is firmly focussed on the hub of the wheel, Alastair Crooke writes.
How the world appears all depends on whether your gaze is firmly focussed on the hub of the wheel, or alternatively, were you to watch the wheel’s rotation around the hub – and the bearing it follows – you would see the world differently.
Looked at from a DC-centric perspective, all is still: Nothing (as it were), is moving geo-politically. Was there an election in the U.S.? Well, certainly there is no longer an ‘Election Day’ event as the new mechanics of ballots vs in-person voting, commencing up to 50 days earlier, and ploughing on, weeks after, has become far removed from the old notion of having ‘an election’, and an aggregate macro outcome.
From this ‘centric’ viewpoint, the Midterms change nothing – stasis.

More than 4,265 artifacts have been looted, smuggled outside Yemen, and sold in auctions in 6 countries, a new report reveals.
On Thursday, al-Hudhud Center for Archaeological Studies published a report documenting the theft of Yemeni antiquities and their sale in international auctions.
The report said the artifacts were sold in America through 5 auctions, Britain through 4 auctions, France through 3 auctions, two auctions in the Israeli apartheid regime, and an auction in Germany and the Netherlands.
It said the number of pieces sold and displayed amounted to 2,167 artifacts in the US, while 501 artifacts were smuggled to the Israeli regime and sold there.
The report also said the al-Hodhod center was able to recognize 2523 artifacts that have been sold so far, with an estimated value of $12 million. Some of the items have a value of $800,000, such as a manuscript dating back to the fifteenth century AD.
The center confirmed in its report that initial statistics show that 1,384 artifacts are now distributed over 7 international museums.
Britain has been bypassing its own sanctions against Russia, according to a report, which says it managed to track dozens of shipments of Russian oil into the United Kingdom since March.
The British daily newspaper Sunday Times said in a report that the United Kingdom has purchased at least 39 shipments of Russian oil since Moscow launched its military campaign in Ukraine in late February.
Britain has banned the import of Russian oil and oil products into the UK over the conflict in Ukraine.
Citing tanker traffic data and trade statistics, the Times said Russian-origin oil shipments, worth about £200 ($236) million, were reportedly delivered to UK ports after ship-to-ship transfers.
Let’s take Kherson and FTX as two examples of NATO’s censorship of the hard and soft wars over Ukraine. British and Irish state controlled media have shown hours of smiling citizens greeting their Ukrainian liberators in Kherson, just like they welcomed their “liberators” in 1941. Scratching only a little further, we find that the spokesperson for those liberated Khersonians was the Kiev based head of a Nazi death squad, who had only recently arrived, along with the Azov “liberators” in Kherson.
Further, by scrolling through Twitter, never mind Telegram, we come across countless incidents of Ukrainian liberators torturing and dispatching those accused of collaborating with Russia. Though the mutilation and murder of Russians and other minorities has been a constant motif, British and Irish state media never deem it newsworthy, thanks in no small part to how the biased reporting of Norma Costello, Sally Hayden and countless other Lord and Lady Haw Haws has made the murder of Iranian, Syrian, Palestinian, Russian and Iraqi civilians at the hands of NATO’s proxies of no account whatsoever. For me, and billions like me throughout the world, that partisan censorship, for which Julius Streicher and Lord Haw Haw were both hanged at War’s end, is grossly and criminally morally offensive beyond words.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman says the UN nuclear agency adopted the “politically-motivated” anti-Tehran resolution as the country has “the most transparent” peaceful nuclear program.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Nasser Kan’ani said “the politically-motivated resolution was issued while Iran has the most transparent peaceful nuclear program” in terms of the number of facilities under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) compared to other countries and the number of inspections its nuclear activities have undergone by the IAEA.
He stressed that the resolution was enforced after the US and the three European countries exerted pressure on the agency’s Board of Governors.
The spokesman did not give more details on Iran’s response to the resolution, saying the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran would declare the details when necessary.
Earlier, Kan’ani had said Iran took the first step in responding to the resolution.
“In response to the latest action of the three European countries and the United States, namely the passing of a resolution against Iran in the agency’s Board of Governors, a number of measures were put on the agenda of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran and their implementation was carried out in the enrichment complexes of Martyr Ahmadi in Natanz and Martyr Alimohammadi complex in Fordow in the presence of the IAEA’s inspectors,” he said.
In an undiplomatic move aimed at extending support for the riots in Iran, lawmakers in the European Parliament have cut ties with Tehran over what they claim Iran’s “unacceptable” sanctioning of several members of the house.
“In response to the unacceptable Iranian sanctioning of this house, there shall be no direct contact between European Parliament delegations and committees with official Iranian counterparts until further notice,” said EU Parliament President Roberta Metsola in a statement.
The statement further voiced its ill-intentioned support for foreign-instigated rioters, saying, “We will not look away from those who look to us on the streets of Iran. We are with you. We will stay with you.”

Many people are skipping Thanksgiving dinner because they simply can't afford it. We have disturbing new economic numbers out today show how we may be facing the worst economic crisis since the great recession couple of key data points that we want to talk about.

US inspectors don't know where 90 percent of the weapons handed over to Ukraine are
Ukraine, as a project of the Biden family, seems to be shaping US political life more and more. They only talk about Ukraine. The New York Times acknowledges the reality: “Ukraine's monthly budget deficit is $5 billion and the government has been forced to turn to the West and the International Monetary Fund for emergency assistance. Prime Minister Denis Shmygal recently stated that Ukraine will need $42 billion in aid in 2023 given the expected revenue-spending gap. President Zelensky added another 17 billion to rebuild damaged or destroyed power plants and homes.”
Under these circumstances, Europe has slowed down financial aid to Ukraine. The US Republicans do not want the US to take care of Ukraine alone and certainly not in such an uncontrolled manner: “President Joe Biden has asked Congress for more than $37 billion in emergency aid for Ukraine. According to previous reports, Congress was working on a $50 billion stimulus package for the remaining two years of the "lame duck" presidency ahead of the next presidential election. Congress has already allocated approximately $66 billion for military, economic and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine. The Conservative coalition says the $50 billion in aid to Ukraine totals a staggering $116 billion.”
Trump-Endorsed Kari Lake has insisted that she “will become Governor” now that the Arizona Attorney General’s office demanded answers from Maricopa County regarding voter suppression that occurred on election day.
Sam is a member of the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation. They are among several tribes with a deep connection to salmon in the Columbia River Basin, a region that drains parts of the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, Canada, southward through seven U.S. states into the West’s largest river.
It’s also a region contaminated by more than a century of industrial and agricultural pollution, leaving Sam and others to weigh unknown health risks against sacred practices.
“We just know that if we overconsume a certain amount of it that it might have possible risks,” Sam said as she gutted salmon in the bustling kitchen. “It’s our food. We don’t see it any other way.”
But while tribes have pushed the government to pay closer attention to contamination, that hasn’t happened. Regulators have done so little testing for toxic chemicals in fish that even public health and environmental agencies admit they don’t have enough information to prioritize cleanup efforts or to fully inform the public about human health risks.
Most people are bewildered by what is a global energy crisis, with prices for oil, gas and coal simultaneously soaring and even forcing closure of major industrial plants such as chemicals or aluminum or steel. The Biden Administration and EU have insisted that all is because of Putin and Russia’s military actions in Ukraine. This is not the case. The energy crisis is a long-planned strategy of western corporate and political circles to dismantle industrial economies in the name of a dystopian Green Agenda that has its roots in the period years well before February 2022, when Russia launched its military action in Ukraine.
Blackrock pushes ESG
In January, 2020 on the eve of the economically and socially devastating covid lockdowns, the CEO of the world’s largest investment fund, Larry Fink of Blackrock, issued a letter to Wall Street colleagues and corporate CEOs on the future of investment flows. In the document, modestly titled “A Fundamental Reshaping of Finance”, Fink, who manages the world’s largest investment fund with some $7 trillion then under management, announced a radical departure for corporate investment. Money would “go green.” In his closely-followed 2020 letter Fink declared,
“In the near future – and sooner than most anticipate – there will be a significant re-allocation of capital…Climate risk is investment risk.” Further he stated, “Every government, company, and shareholder must confront climate change.” [i]
In a separate letter to Blackrock investor clients, Fink delivered the new agenda for capital investing. He declared that Blackrock will exit certain high-carbon investments such as coal, the largest source of electricity for the USA and many other countries. He added that Blackrock would screen new investment in oil, gas and coal to determine their adherence to the UN Agenda 2030 “sustainability.”
