Top 5 JFK stories of the week

Rifle discovered

This week brought a burst of interest in the tagged posts on George Hickey, the late Secret Service Man who was falsely accused of firing the fatal shot that killed President Kennedy. I was glad to see people are getting the true story.

The bogus “Secret Service Man Did It” conspiracy meme (it doesn’t deserve to be called a theory) has persisted since the publication of a foolish book called Mortal Error in the 1980s. The meme was revived for the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination by REELZ Channel and an Australian cop who should know better. And Malcolm Gladwell should definitely know better.

JFK Facts: setting the record straight since 2013. 

Here are the five best-read JFK Facts pages for the week, May 8-15.

1) George Hickey

2) Was a Mauser found in the Texas School Book Depository? (April 9, 2014)

3) Ex-flame says Ruby ‘had no choice’ but to kill Oswald (March, 20, 2013)

4) Oswald’s wallet, Part II: Was the ‘Hidell’ ID card planted? (May 5, 2014)

5) 21 cops who heard a grassy knoll shot (May 11, 2014)


  1. Larry Schnapf says:

    there is no doubt that the measured lengths of the rifle found in the TSBD and the one that was ordered from Klein’s were different.

  2. bogman says:

    Reading Jeff’s recent posts about JFK’s attempts to make peace with Castro got me thinking.

    So the pro-Castro guy shoots the govt head who’s looking to get along with Fidel but leaves his successor passing directly beneath him alive who will never make peace with Castro.

    If Oswald hated America and wanted to disrupt our political system, why not shoot at the Vice President too?

    • Gerry Simone says:

      Not that I believe LHO was the assassin, but if we play devil’s advocate like I think you’re doing, JFK’s public rhetoric was for a free Cuba, and not to make amends with the Castro regime.

      • bogman says:

        Right, I guess I’m pointing out the absurdity of Oswald killing JFK for his love of Castro. The DPD’s own interrogation notes show Oswald thought LBJ would be no better to Castro.

        If you’re a pro-Commie ‘nut’ who hates America with no escape plan, why not keep shooting at top govt officials? After all, LBJ was technically the POTUS the moment JFK was incapacitated by the head shot.

        For me, it just once again leads any reasonable person to the inevitable conclusion that the WC was a bunch of hokum.

  3. Alex S says:

    I’m guessing this week’s interest is because this documentary is now on Netflix streaming. Unfortunately they don’t have anything like The Kennedy Conspiracy or Beyond JFK to provide a more accurate picture (though they did have John Hankey’s garbage last I checked).

  4. anonymous says:

    And Malcolm Gladwell probably knows better but he’s an influential corporate writer and “third party” media asset. In journalistic terms, “third-party advocate” simply means fraud…”third party” refers to a PR technique in which a corporation’s marketing message is delivered to the public through seemingly independent journalists, academics, think tanks, medical authorities, political leaders, academics, fire and police officials, environmentalists, regulators.”

    Over the years the National Journalism Center has produced hundreds of “third party” media assets:

    Yasha Levine wrote the book, The Corruption of Malcolm Gladwell.

  5. Nathaniel Heidenheimer says:

    How many newspapers carried the Gladwell-revived story, world-wide?

  6. Arnaldo M Fernandez says:

    The key fact is that the rifle found by Dallas Police and attributed to LHO is not the one the FBI said LHO ordered.
    The WC said he ordered a 36″ Mannlicher-Carcano carbine, and the Dallas Police found a 40″ short rifle. Moreover, the good store in Chicago where LHO supposedly ordered the rifle from, did not put scopes on the 40″ model, but the one in evidence had a scope. See Jim DiEugenio’s Reclaiming Parkland, pp. 56 ff.

    • Jonathan says:

      Furthermore, the W.C. Carcano is not the same as the Carcano in the National Archives. Both have serial number C 2766. But on one, the “C” is serif and on the other the “C” is sans serif.

      There’s been a lot of discussion here about the rifle. There ought to be a thorough diary on the matter.

      • Arnaldo M. Fernandez says:

        Right! And it´s something that Dr. McAdams could not easily dismiss as a factoid. It would be worthy of publishing a factoid-proof list of conspiracy facts.

      • John McAdams says:

        But on one, the “C” is serif and on the other the “C” is sans serif.

        You need to post a citation on that. And it would be far and away the best for you to post a primary source citation, presumably photos.

        • Gerry Simone says:

          I agree Professor. I’ve never heard that one before.

        • Ronnie Wayne says:

          Welcome back John. Of course your right. Documentation is of the utmost importance in ascertaining the truth about the “flurry of shots”.
          While Jeff has permitted speculation based on documented information in the past, which I have posted, I’m glad the focus of is his website is facts.

        • Fearfaxer says:

          Why don’t you post a citation proving him wrong? Seriously, that would be the logical thing to do when you challenge someone in this way. You have a website that purports to be a repository of factual information on the JFK assassination, a topic on which you are supposed to be an expert. Given the many disputes about the weapon allegedly used to kill Kennedy, one would think you’d have some information to refute this claim right at your fingertips, or could easily find some.

          • John McAdams says:

            Why don’t you post a citation proving him wrong?

            Sorry, but that’s not the way it works.

            Claims like that are not assumed to be true until proven false.

            Jonathan needs to show it is true.

          • Fearfaxer says:

            @ McAdams:

            You’re not the one who decides how these things work. You simply have the attitude that nothing you say is ever inaccurate or to be challenged. C’mon, prove him wrong. Dig into the voluminous amount of information you supposedly have and come up with something. If you don’t, it’s probably because you can’t.

    • Gerry Simone says:

      Interesting. Not sure exactly where I saw links to photos (could’ve been here by McAdams), but there was one MC photo ad for a 36″ MC and another for a 40″ MC.

      Were there two sizes for the MC?

      If not, then could the advertised disparity be a typo?
