November 21, 1963

The U.K.’s Daily Mail is touting “newly uncovered video” of President Kennedy on the last night of his life, but this footage actually surfaced two years ago.

JFK was speaking to the United Latin American Citizens, a Hispanic civil rights group, at an event in Houston, Texas.

    Really.I thought that his last remarks were ” No,you certainly can’t”.

    The night of November 21, 1963 was eventful, if one believes Madeleine Brown, who reported a nefarious party at Clint Murchison’s that LBJ attended.

    I’m in the camp that believes LBJ had foreknowledge of the assassination. I don’t believe, however, Brown’s story has been verified or corroborated.

    One thing that has interested me is that we have quite a bit of detail of JFK’s final hours. The film clip here. The detail of JFK’s actions on the morning of November 22. Yet we have a blur as to his wounds. Not just a blur, a lot of misrepresentation, lying, and cover-up aimed at creating the blur.

      Well, have you read the critique of Brown’s story by Harold Weisberg? Before he died he wrote over 20 unpublished book length studies on various theorists in the conspiracy camp (Groden, Lane, Twyman, Fetzer, Lifton, Blakey, etc.) and those in lone gunman theory camp (Specter, Epstein, Belin, Kermit Hall, etc.). One of those critiques is on Brown’s theory. Very interesting analysis.
      You can find it at the Weisberg Digital Archive.

    You might be incorrect about these remarks on the evening of Nov. 21 being the last public remarks JFK made. I believe he spoke on Nov. 22 to people who had gathered outside the hotel where he stayed in Fort Worth.

  4. Jonathan says:

    I ran agents in Viet Nam.

    Details omitted, the agents I ran didn’t know me. They were ground level and mostly useful.

    Oswald was a ground-level agent; a mushroom.

    I want to see his P.A. — his principal agent. Then his case officer.

  5. John Kirsch says:

    Again, I think this post is inaccurate in saying that JFK’s remarks in Houston on Nov. 21 were the last public comments he made. Kennedy spoke at a breakfast meeting of the Fort Worth chamber of commerce on the morning of 11/22.

    Dinosaurs like myself that were in middle school should remember pot flooding into schools after JFK’s death. By 1965 even the teachers were openly talking about it in class. By 1966-1967 the Beatles disclosed themselves as English users of pot & LSD.

    Usually the big change that the US or global public experienced centers around the Viet Nam conflict. Overlooked is the flood of drugs from Latin American countries. LBJ’s role (if any) in any of this has not been established (to my knowledge). His administration should have known about with Hoover wiretapping a good percentage of US citizens, many prominent celebs.

    Were the Latin-American drug lords merely capitalizing on a heartbroken, disoriented US or were darker forces at work that removed JFK (a drug user himself).

  7. John Kirsch says:

    I’m sorry to keep harping on this, Jeff, but this post is incorrect. Go to and you will see an article entitled “JFK Tribute.” The story says, “On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy gave a speech at Fort Worth’s formal Chamber of Commerce breakfast and an unscheduled speech to thousands of people who had been waiting in the rain with the hope of seeing him as he left the Hotel Texas, now the Fort Worth Hilton Hotel. No one knew those would be his last public appearances.” The remarks in Houston that you cite in the post were NOT the last public remarks that Kennedy made.
