No president has insisted on the release of the secret John F. Kennedy Assassination files more than President Donald J. Trump.

Last Oct. 17, he tweeted, “Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.” Then six days later, “After strict consultation with General Kelly, the CIA and other Agencies, I will be releasing ALL JFK files other than the names and addresses of any mentioned person who is still living.”

When the CIA and FBI refused to comply he gave them a deadline of April 26, 2018. When they still refused his direct order on the basis that release could harm “identifiable national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns” Trump extended the date by three years to Oct. 26, 2021. Why?

Based upon what we know now the assassination was a conspiracy. The vast majority of those old enough to remember the assassination believe it to have been, the over 2,000 books written on the subject show or argue that there were other bad players in the event, Dr. Charles Crenshaw an operating surgeon who placed Kennedy in the coffin at Parkland Hospital testified the neck wound was an entry wound proving more than a single assassin, among the vast number of other testators.

Thirteen years later The United States House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) in 1976 concluded: “President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy.”

The Warren Commission sealed the unpublished portion of their findings for 75 years (one life-time) and the House Select Committee, 50 years. Intentionally withholding evidence is conspiratorial.

No government agency seals something this long, now 55 years, unless it is huge. The CIA is an accomplice! They are the ones refusing to surrender the data. Perhaps this is so big that it includes a former president potentially damaging a political party and thus would be headlined news for weeks. Why would we not want all accomplices brought to justice even more so if a president and his CIA were involved? Trump agreed to have “the names and addresses of any mentioned person who is still living” redacted and presumably everyone involved is already dead. So what could possibly be the problem?

The problem is that it is huge enough to dominate the news for sometime distracting potential mid-term voters from the best economy in two decades, unemployment for Blacks, Hispanics and women perhaps the lowest ever, the lowest tax cuts for the middle class in decades, unprecedented reduction of bureaucratic regulations, the destruction of the invincible ISIS, unprecedented breakthroughs with Korea, returning factories and jobs to America, restoring fair trade with nations whose trade balances have robbed so much of our middle-class wealth, exposing the deep state and its contrived fake Russia Collusion to destroy the presidency of a duly elected president, and finally bringing to light the Clinton Email, Foundation, and Uranium One Scandals, to name a few.

Like Trump or not, in 18 months he has done more good for this nation than the two previous presidents combined.

The problem is the establishment media refuses to cover these historic achievements and the Trump momentum. The Kennedy Assassination story was concealed for 55 years by the Deep State, what is three more years compared to that now being accomplished? Most already know that our government was at least complacent. Such can wait until Trump is safely reelected and the story does not have the potential to derail this momentum, which benefits most Americans. Exposing the corruption in our government 55 years ago, outside of helping us harness the Deep State, does little. Those protected are probably safely dead.

Still, as the year’s fly by, and new data surfaces from the hundreds of books on the subject, it is increasingly more difficult to dismiss, as an accomplice, Lyndon Baines Johnson and his CIA/FBI friends. Especially revealing are three noteworthy books: Blood, Money, & Power: How LBJ Killed JFK by Barr McClellan. LBJ: Mastermind of the JFK Assassination by Phillip Nelson and Texas in the Morning by Lyndon Johnson’s long-time mistress, Madeline Duncan Brown. Brown “takes you to the meeting the night before the assassination. She reveals the identities of the men in that room. She shares the story of Lyndon Johnson coming late to the meeting, then emerging in a fury, grabbing her by the arms so hard it hurt, and swearing in a rage, ‘After tomorrow, those Kennedy’s will never embarrass me again—and that’s not a threat, that’s a promise!’ ”

The link to Johnson is not a new theory. More and more theorists have centered on Johnson for numerous reasons including his being the leading beneficiary of the death of his presidential predecessor and his immediately placing himself in charge of assembling the Warren Commission to investigate the assassination—even allegedly picking the individuals to serve thereon.   Congress, with no vested interest in the outcome, should have formed the investigating committee. Johnson gained the most coveted office in the world. It is no secret that Kennedy planned to remove him from the ticket in the next election.

If the destroy-Trump media did not have to cover Trump’s accomplishments they wouldn’t and the president is not likely to give them a valid reason not to. We can wait.
