The JFK Conspiracy Is the government really truthful to us - the people? Government is a really big "organization" with a huge amount of members, and it's obvious somebody is not telling the truth. Most of these dishonest events take place in an attempt to cover up any information that the government thinks is not for public eyes, but which we are supposed to know as citizens of this country. This is called a government conspiracy or cover up. Many people believe in conspiracies; some even believe too much, but it's very rare that a person believes the government is not hiding at least something from them. There have been hundreds if not thousands of books published on this subject and also numerous TV shows based on conspiracies and cover-ups like the "X-Files". There are even people who research these events for their enjoyment. There are many internationally known conspiracies, some examples are: the John F. Kennedy assassination, and the Roswell, New Mexico cover-up. Many other conspiracies are not that well known, the TWA flight 800 explosion which was supposedly an accident is one example. Probably the most famous government conspiracy of all is the John F. Kennedy assassination on November 22, 1963. Most people think that the Kennedy family was an all around perfect American family. Well they were not. I'm going to talk about the JFK assassination and why the government did not reveal some very important information about the incident to the public. Like I already said -- the Kennedies were not a perfect family. John's father, Joe Kennedy was a bootlegger during the prohibition and was also tied up with Mafia. He made a huge fortune dealing with Mafia and bootlegging, Joe was also the one who provided his son with a $250 million fortune when John was just in his 20's. Otherwise, how else could a 20 something year old guy acquire a 250 million dollar capital in the 1950's. John F. Kennedy was not always honest himself, he did not win the presidential election honestly, his father asked the Mafia - Gambino crime family to help his son beat Nixon. Gambino faked and stuffed ballots. During his term John received money from Gambino and two other important crime families. But this tribute did not last long, John's brother, whom he had appointed to a very high government position launched a very serious campaign to eliminate Mafia controlled hotels and casinos which were numerous around the country. The campaign turned out to be very successful which put Gambino into a very bad situation - his profits were dropping by millions each week and his men were arrested one by one. The Mafia world was furious and JFK was announced a "double crosser" which meant he was relying on help from the mafia, but at the same time trying to eliminate them. And in the Mafia world there is only one answer to a double crosser - a "hit". Oswald was hired to do the job, although it is still a mystery by which crime family. John Fitzgerald. Kennedy was shot at three times with two bullets making it to the head on November 22, 1963. John died in a hospital bed, his body was taken for an autopsy and the FBI conducted a long investigation on the murder. Oswald was arrested and imprisoned for life, but none of the Mafia was touched. The government covered this incident up because they were aware of JFK's connections to the Mafia and that the CIA was involved with the same people in a campaign to assassinate Fidel Castro of Cuba. So if the public knew this information it would present great danger to the stability of the government. The FBI's report said Oswald killed John Kennedy but it had nothing in it about the Mafia. Also when the autopsy was conducted on John - the brain that doctors supposedly took out of his head was a full size, unharmed, adult brain. But Kennedy was shot in the head twice and it was very vivid how a good part of his brain splattered out on the street. Now many theories exist in the world about the assassination in general and certain parts of JFK's life. Almost all of them are false and completely out of the blue with no particular evidence to prove them, but some could be true. This conspiracy has been researched for 32 years and will be researched even more just like all the other government conspiracies and cover-ups.
