Crowds gathered along the same route through Dallas that the president's motorcade passed when shots rang out on November 22, 1963.
JFK Assassination: The Death of Hope ~ link ~ After decades of non-investigation by the epically corrupt J. Edgar Hoover, organized crime was on the receiving end of a massive attack by Robert Kennedy ~ the president’s brother and Attorney General. At the same time, his brother was going after organized crime, JFK was going after the criminal elements that had taken over the CIA.
Few people understand that organized crime and the CIA (and its predecessors) work closely together both inside the US and outside and by the time of the Kennedy assassination had done so for decades. Neither of the Kennedy brothers were choirboys, but what they were undertaking was a heroic effort on their parts and one done for the good of the country. Had they succeeded, they would have averted many of the catastrophes that have befallen the US ~ and other countries (effecting many hundreds of millions of people) ~ in the last 50 years
The Kennedy brothers knew the risks involved in their operations. What they attempted required great moral and physical courage the likes of which have rarely been seen in the history of this country.
USA remembers Kennedy 50 Years after assassination - with video ~ link ~ This is a sad day. Like so many Americans who are old enough, I remember clearly the events of the day. I was in grade school and I will never forget it! Kennedy was a hero. Anyone else, may well have gotten the world into the Third World War during the Cuban Missile Crisis, but President Kennedy, and God above, kept us safe. May he rest in peace. Tim Earl of Stirling

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has arrived to join the talks, and reports say the discussions could extend into the weekend.
Senior White House official: Israel's 'all-or-nothing' stance on Iran will lead to WAR ~ link ~ In a conference call with think tanks and advocacy groups sympathetic to the Obama administration’s strategy with Iran, the official said Israel’s stance would “close the door on diplomacy” and would “essentially lead to war.”
The Jewish Telegraphic Agency obtained a recording of the conference on condition that the participants remained anonymous.
The official expressed frustration with Israel’s pushback against the US proposal for a “first step” agreement with Tehran that would exchange some modest sanctions relief for some restrictions in Iran’s nuclear energy program.
Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the US, France, Britain, Russia and China - plus Germany kicked off their latest round of talks on Wednesday.
The two sides are working to hammer out an interim deal to pave the ground for the final resolution to the West’s decade-old nuclear standoff with Iran.
The recognition of Iran's entitlement to enrich uranium for peaceful purposes remains one of the major sticking points in the talks.
In recent weeks, senior Israeli officials including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have been hard at work trying to discredit negotiations with the Islamic Republic.
Under the influence of the Israel lobby, a bipartisan group of 14 US senators issued a statement on Thursday saying they would move ahead with a new sanctions bill against Tehran over the coming weeks.
At a White House meeting on Tuesday, US President Barack Obama urged American senators to ignore the aggressive lobbying campaign by Israel and hold off on new sanctions against Tehran.
A recent poll shows a majority of Americans support a diplomatic agreement between Iran and the six world powers over the country’s nuclear energy program.
The survey conducted by ABC News/Washington Post found out that 64 percent of respondents back a deal that will ease sanctions in exchange for Iran restricting its nuclear program.
US pro-Zionist senators threaten Iran nuclear talks with call for new sanctions at 'crucial' stage ~ link ~
A group of 14 US senators announced they are calling for a new package of sanctions against Iran, just as Russia’s foreign minister arrived in Geneva for what Iran called a “crucial” phase in the talks with the P5+1 group on its nuclear program.
The talks are now focusing on the actual text of the agreement, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters Friday.
We would never be where we are now if the world had imposed sanctions on Israel for its long-running and huge weapons of mass destruction programs. The West thus ended up being a major proliferator itself in spite of all the rhetoric to the contrary.
Western media ignore massacre of Christians in Syria - with video ~ link ~ That large numbers of Christians are being killed, maimed, and raped because they are Christian, and this is being done by people supported by western tax money is something that should be shouted from every church in the world. The mainstream news media, which is little more than simply a propaganda arm of globalist and Zionist power, is anti-Christian and evil to the core!!! Stirling
A new report by the news service of the Pontifical Mission Societies highlights the massacre of 45 Christians in the village of Sadad, northeast of Damascus.
The killing marks the biggest massacre of Christians in the Syrian conflict which began in March 2011.
The report also blamed the foreign-backed Takfiri militants for the massacre, and denounced the US government and its mainstream media for remaining silent on the mass murder.
More Christians are now fleeing their homes as the persecution is worsening in militant-held territories in the north.
Christians say kidnapping, rape and execution of Christians are being carried out by Takfiri militants and those affiliated with the so-called Free Syrian Army.
After receiving a warm welcome from Israeli leaders, Hollande declared in Hebrew that “I will always remain a friend of Israel.”

"When we heard (I just found out yesterday) that Ukraine has suspended – not canceled but suspended – negotiations with the EU and wants to review everything, we heard a threat from the EU to Ukraine up to the point of holding mass protests. This is pressure and blackmail," Putin said at a joint press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in St. Petersburg.
