Memory. The average person has their first memory at 2.5 years of age. My first memory came five weeks short of my second birthday
November 22, 1963. I distinctly remember watching my mother iron clothes on an old-fashioned ironing board, watching television, with tears in her eyes. President John F. Kennedy had been shot at 11:30 am Central Time in Dallas, Texas while riding in his open-top Presidential limousine, later dying from a mortal gunshot wound to his head.
All my life I’ve studied President Kennedy’s assassination.
One of my heroes is Mark Lane. This politician and attorney courageously fought all his life to bring out the truth of what happened in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, even going so far as to give up his law practice in New York to help defend those railroaded by the FBI, CIA, and the establishment, including Lee Oswald. The two-minute clip below is from Mark Lane and was recorded on December 3, 1964. Every time I listen to it, I get chills. Mark Lane explains why “the truth” about Dallas is important for the continuation of American democracy.
Rex Ray, a friend of mine from Bonham, Texas, sent me an astonishing book written by Rex’s friend, James Tague. James was wounded at Dealey Plaza by a stray bullet during the crossfire at the President. Tague’s book, LBJ and the Kennedy Killing, is well-researched. There are over 2,500 books written on the assassination of President Kennedy., and every time I read one, I learn something new.
But out of all the hundreds of books I’ve read, dozens of audios I’ve heard, and thousands of articles I’ve researched, there are a few that are at the top of my “All-Time Favorites.”
A video entitled Lee Oswald’s Last Phone Call, a lecture given by Kennedy Assassination researcher Dr. Grover Proctor, has been viewed nearly 5 million times. Dr. Proctor gave this lecture on December 21, 2015, 52 years after the President’s death. In his lecture, Dr. Proctor gives details about the call that Lee Oswald made at the Dallas city jail twelve hours before Jack Ruby shoots and kills him in the basement of the Dallas police station.
The most amazing portion of this video presentation is the question-and-answer time that follows Dr. Proctor’s lecture. The late Jim Marrs, Kennedy researcher extraordinaire and the author of Crossfire: The Plot that Killed Kennedy, joins Dr. Proctor on the stage and they answer some amazing questions with jaw-dropping clarity and research. I promise; it is riveting.
I have provided a transcript of the captivating one-hour presentation and follow-up Q&A. When it was over, the moderator called it “one of the best symposiums on the JFK assassination ever held.”
I agree. Enjoy.
