Roberto Aguayo Molly E. Daniel ENC 1145 March 24, 2013 JFK Assassination On the day of January 20, 1961 America was watching every TV news station, listing to every radio awaiting the new president John Fitzgerald Kennedy to take his oath into the oval office. He was highly sought by a lot of Americans and brought to the white house a stark contrast in organization compared to the decision making structure of president Eisenhower. His first three years in office he made a lot of great changes and like all presidents there was some bad stuff that happened but overall he had confidence in himself and wanted to go for reelection because it was time to elect a new president. By the end of his first term he was campaigning all over the United States and on November 21 of 1963 he and his wife Jacqueline Kennedy departed on Air Force One gearing themselves for a five-‐city tour of Texas. He knew that Texas was going to be a tough state to sweep and would affect his reelection if he didn’t get it so he wanted to meet and greet with the people and get as much of a personal connection that he could with them. They went to San Antonio the first day and everything went according to plan, the people loved his humbleness and how he talked to them outside amongst getting slightly wet from the rain. On the morning of November 22 they had a stop in Fort Worth were it was rainy and very gloomy weather but they managed to grab the people attention because of how Kennedy and his wife weren’t afraid to talk in the rain. After that,
they departed for a quick 13-‐minute flight to Dallas, Texas. As they left the airport, Governor John Connaly and his wife Nellie were already waiting in the limousine to accompany the president and the first lady. Since the rain had deceased and was turning into a beautiful day the plastic bubble top had been left off on the convertible. Crowds of ecstatic people lined up the 10-‐mile stretch of streets just to wave at Kennedy and Jacqueline. Almost to the end of there concourse the limousine was turning off Main Street at Dealey Plaza at around 1230 p.m. driving past the Texas School Book Depository and that’s where the scene turned tragic, three gunshots were fired at the presidents limousine. Surprisingly the crowed managed to keep cheering and didn’t become ecstatic not realizing it was really tragic because President Kennedy was struck just below of his head right around the right side of his neck piercing the top of his lungs and also hitting Governer Connally that was in the front seat. They were both rushed immediately to the hospital, at around one o’clock president Kennedy was pronounced dead by a gunshot wound taken to the head. Governor Connally was okay after suffering serious injuries to his shoulder and hand. The United States was at risk at that moment because there leader was dead but as quickly as he died, one hour later at 2:38 pm CST vice president Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office on board Air Force One just before it departed from Love Field in Texas. There are many questions out there that we don’t have answers too, the one thing in this research paper is that from all this evidence that has been collected I
believe that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone in the assassination on John F Kennedy. This paper will uncover all of the minute details in this whole ordeal and what really happened that day of November 22, 1961. Was there actually in fact another gunman that fired another shot? And what was going behind in President Kennedy’s personal life that most of the people didn’t know that could had lead to his assassination, was he the man he said he was, what were other people saying about him? Were there secret plots that we didn’t know about? In this essay we will find the conspiracies of how gossip and gender roles tied into his assassination. As we all know it by how it was descripted in the introduction the Government released that the assassination on JFK was the work of one man and one man only, which was Lee Harvey Oswald but when you look back and examine the crime scene in detail its just doesn’t piece together. As we look into Oswald’s past he had a rough time growing up being raised by a single mother. He was known to be a loner and one of the quiet kids at a young age when he turned 16 he enlisted in the marines and started learning the Russian language. In 1959 he was given a dishonorable discharge by the marine reserves and after that he decided to move to the Soviet Union, which he lived there, from 1959 to 1962. There he met a girl named Marina Puskova, which was native to Russia. He moved back to the United States in 1962 and from there is where it is questioned. Was he working for the KGB of Russia?
Another conspiracy that is very interesting to find out about is the mob and there connections with the government. We start off buy taking a look at Kennedy’s background. He wasn’t the “Perfect President” everybody thought he was. He was known to have a fetish for beautiful blonde celebrities but the one that is known by a lot is the notorious Marilynn Monroe. He also had affairs with other women even if they weren’t blond. This is one reason why the mafia conspiracy was tied to his assassination. Not only did the mobsters have other reasons to get rid of Kennedy also because him and his brother which was the head of organized crime were trying to get rid of the mobsters and their organized crime. The three main guys in the plot to kill Mr. Kennedy were Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante, and Jimmy Hofa. Not only is there key evidence in this because The Kennedys and the mafia go way back, the only reason JFK was elected president was because of the mafia. JFK and Chicago mob boss Sam Giancana shared the same mistresses in Judith Cambell Exner. Gianca helped President Kennedy win votes in Chicago and all over the east coast. But as the mafia helped president Kennedy they soon sought after him because once he came into the oval office him and his brother wanted the mobsters to die out. So out of protection for the mafias themselves they assassinated president Kennedy, included in the plot was Jack Ruby, this was the person who spontaneously came out and killed Lee Harvey Oswald which was the person charged for the murder. But why would he do that? Who was Jack Ruby and what was he trying to hide? Finding the phone records of Jack Ruby found that he had multiple phone calls to an out of state number of Carlos Marcello in the 3 month time prior to JFK’s assassination.
