Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.
And excellent piece by Peggy Noonan follows.
Perhaps it was the dark side of JFK hidden dutifully by the press with no credible evidence and a lying Warren commission covering up what happened if they knew.
Kennedy had connections with the Mafia, he didn’t like the CIA and saw the as a rogue element not under his control, then the Cuban connection is a possibility when Kennedy failed to provide air cover to Cuban dissidents who where in the process of mounting an insurrection and taking Cuba back from Fidel Castro.
Both JFK and Mafia boss, Sam Giancana were having sexual trysts with Miss Monroe.
Perhaps all would have turned out far better has she stayed married to Joe DiMaggio.

I am on my way from Los Angeles to Dallas, where tomorrow I will appear on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” which will come live out of the Texas Schoolbook Depository. I can’t believe I’ll be inside that place, from which, 50 years ago next week, at a corner window on the sixth floor, Lee Harvey Oswald fired the shots that killed John F. Kennedy.
One of the questions we’ll discuss: Why do we still talk about JFK?
From my show notes:
1. We talk still about JFK and his death because the biggest generation in all U.S. history, that part of the population known as the baby boomers, watched it all, live, on that new thing called TV, and it entered our heads and never left. It was the first central historical fact of our lives, so we still read about it, think about it, and watch anything having to do with it.
2. Our parents experienced it as a different kind of trauma. They had lost one of their own. He had fought in World War II, like them. He was still young, like them, and now he was brutally cut down. What a lot of them felt was captured in the famous conversation of the newspaper columnist Mary McGrory and her friend Pat Moynihan. McGrory said: Oh Pat, can you believe we’re at Jack Kennedy’s funeral? “I feel like we’ll never laugh again.” He replied: “We’ll laugh again, but we’ll never be young again.”
3. We talk about JFK’s death because for the 18 years leading up to that point—between the end of the war, as we used to say, and 1963—America knew placidity. Many problems were growing and quietly brewing, but on the surface America was placid, growing more affluent, and politically calm. And then this rupture, this shock, this violence, this new sense that anything can happen, history can be ripped from its rails, that security once won cannot necessarily be maintained. That our luck won’t necessarily hold.
