The Day The Music Died: 50 Years Ago Today and Why It Matters

U.S. President John F. Kennedy - 1961

There are many out there who undoubtedly do not fully grasp the true significance of what happened in Dallas, Texas on November 22nd, 1963. Nor -- sadly -- wish to.

For to understand the truth of that day 50 years ago, is to understand what really happened in Memphis on April 4, 1968. And what really happened in Los Angeles on June 6, 1968. And what really happened in Kent, Ohio on May 4, 1970. And what really happened in New York and Virginia on September 11, 2001 ... and more importantly ... why And by whom.

The real truth is out there -- if one dares to confront it. Understandably, we know that most can not handle the truth. It is a sad and horrible truth, but until there is a mass awakening to these truths, these atrocities will continue.

The conspiracy is the conspiracy. The reality and dream of The Matrix exists.

Not convinced? Here's a 2:00 YouTube showing JFK’s Secret Service protection being waved away from his car, and the perplexed reaction of at least one Special Agent.

American dream. How could something so good, go bad, so fast?

Here's "how". A very good overview on the "what" is contained in Oliver Stone on 50th Anniversary of JFK Assassination & the Untold History of the United States. A very good overview on the "why" is contained in JFK's Vision of Peace: RFK Jr. on John F. Kennedy's Attempts to End the Cold War | Rolling Stone.

So check those links, and don't believe anything you haven't personally researched and drawn your own conclusions.

The illusion continues to crumble...

JFK was a prescription drug addict in addition to having very serious sexual deviancies. What a great family those Kennedys are - leaving women to die underwater, serial adultery, drunk driving, murders, rapes, suicides.

Once you bring Oliver Stone into an allegedly serious discussion about the assassination, credibility comes to a full stop.

Good grief...

@Anon - So are you suggesting that JFK deserved to be assassinated?

Wow. That's pretty sad and sick.

I continue to be amazed how everything on a blog that is supposed to be dedicated to Neil Young and his music is nothing more than a left wing propaganda website. You have reached a new low giving credibility to the insane conspiracy theory connecting George Bush to the JFK assassination. Its time to back away from your laptop for a few days and experience the real world. I think it would do wonders for you.

We're talking about John here, not his whole family and he's human just like the rest of us. He couldn't be in the Army because of his bad back so he used his family influences to join the Navy and was a World War II hero. Read about the PT-109 incident instead of focusing on National Enquirer sensationalism. JFK wanted to change the world. That's why he's dead. I'd say the man had a lot of courage. Are you going to cut down Bobby too? You're an idiot.

God Bless JFK and Bobby Kennedy too. Fifty years. We can only imagine.

The United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA)concluded in 1979 that Oswald did not act alone and that there was a conspiracy.

this is a neil young blog.
more accurately, it is YOUR neil young blog.
i disagree with using a neil young blog to express your opinion about non-neil young topics; i think it's kinda creepy as well as manipulative.
So, i either accept it with all its(from my perspective) flaws because the good outweighs the bad or i stop reading.
kinda like neil's music.

Anon - Not sure how the assassination of a US president is a right/left thing? It really was about all of us, brother.

But since you brought it up...

"If by a 'Liberal' they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a 'Liberal', then I'm proud to say I'm a 'Liberal'. "

~~John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th President of the United States.

@TOM - thanks for feedback.

"i disagree with using a neil young blog to express your opinion about non-neil young "

hmm. Really. Didn't you catch the Kent State, Ohio reference?

That was kinda the whole point here. Connecting the dots from 50 years ago. Clearly, folks are missing the connections. Do some research is all we're suggesting.

There's more to the picture than meets the eye. Remember Winterlong.

I agree President Kennedy was great man. He had flaws, as do all of us. Nov. 22, 1963 was one of the darkest days in our nation's history.

However, I agree with the prior writer. When you bring in the name Oliver Stone to the conversation, you've ventured into fantasy world.

President Kennedy and all Americans deserve better.

At 11/22/2013 01:32:00 PM, Blogger Thrasher Wheat said...

Thanks Steve.

So why does bringing Oliver Stone up lead to fantasy world?

The film JFK actually had Legislative impact.

Did you really read the interview? You've researched this subject for many years?


The film's popularity led to the passage of the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 (also known as the JFK Act) and the formation of the U.S. Assassination Records Review Board. The Act was signed into law by President George H. W. Bush in late October 1992.[67] The ARRB worked until 1998. Witnesses were interviewed (some for the first time), including many medical witnesses, the U.S. government purchased the Zapruder film, and previously-classified documents relating to the assassination were finally made public. By ARRB law, all existing assassination-related documents will be made public by 2017.[68]

Only a naif could possibly believe the Warren Commission fairy tale of what happened in Dallas that day in November, 1963; the day the military-industrial-security complex successfully carried out a coup de e'tat against the United States.

The underlying, fundamental psychological weakness of a thin majority of people is that they suffer from "authoritarian personality complexes"; they want and need to be lead by a strong, authoritarian father figure. In society the federal government represents that father figure; the idea that "father" might betray his "family"--the nation--by committing fratricide--killing Kennedy--is akin to acknowledging that one's biological father killed one's older brother; the thought for many results in unacceptable cognitive dissonance.

So long as this mind-set prevails in a thin majority of the population, the truths about the assassination of JFK and 9-ll will never be acknowledged.

Bringing up Oliver Stone in a Kennedy assassination discussion is about equal to declaring Ronald McDonald a hamburger expert. Anything beyond LHO being the one and only shooter is conjecture, opinion and fantasy. On another note, Neil rocks!

your response is both silly and condescending and melodramatic..

you really are at your best when focusing on neil...

I gotta agree w/anon @ 9:55
I visit this blog 'cause I love the man, maybe hard for YOU to understand, thrasher.
If I feel the need to be force fed conspiracy theories, I'll go to a FOX "fake news" site.
quite a stretch connecting the dots between Neil's Ohio & Dallas, IMHO.
and to bite peeps heads off for voicing their displeasure with your rants in this forum is just flat out...wrong. but, hey, it's your ball.
I think it is indeed time to close the laptop & step away, least till you step down from that soap box yer perched on.

@Tom - no disrespect intended. Apologies if that it is the way you feel.

So here's the thing. We provide relevant quotes, data, links. And ask folks to do the same.

Yet, we get back accusations and insults.

This is not in the spirit of an open mind to new ideas. Look we're just as horrified as everyone else about what has happened. If trying to shed some light is threatening, than guilty.

It's all one song.
Just singing a song won't change the world.
This was nothing less than a coup d'etat to insure what Eisenhower in his final presidential speech did warn all of us about. The complete and total take-over of the military industrial complex.
LBJ helped facilitate it, Nixon (he was hired by George Prescott Bush) delivered it, and the tin soldiers did the dirty-work and throughout the Reagan, Clinton and Bush dynasties and Obama continue to do so.
Yep. We're fucked. Fall of Rome MK II.

Wow...after years of gathering evidence, this post confirmed my fears...Thrasher is a far left wing kook ball who happens to love Neil Young. The so-called climate change ( hilarious moniker ) was bad enough but now we're putting coke head Oliver Stone up as reason to suspect...oh wait...sorry I had to do another bump real quick.

What's next on this Neil Young fan blog? Amnesty for illegals? Seizing guns from private citizens? Raising money for Democrats as you support TW?


Young liberals are understandable & easily explained. Once you hit 30 and have a family...not us much....

Oh as an aside on this Neil Young blog...the left is an evil evil political philosophy...

@Anon @ 8:22 - Thanks for the attack. It only makes us stronger. How can you possibly see the assassination of a President as a left/right issue?

The framing of left/right is a divide & conquer strategy employed by the elite 1%. Don't you see? We're all on the same side. There is no left/right. It's all an illusion. Wake up. Join us.

Either you're terribly confused (which we can understand) or you're a mere tool of the elite being paid to troll and sow discord.

Once again, those who doubt and denounce provide zero evidence -- no quotes, no facts, no links. Ad hominem attacks are only employed by those without grounding.

How can we debate mere attacks?

No one yet has commented on the 2:00 min Youtube vid posted above yet. Wonder why? The truth sucks. Yes, the reality of that day in Dallas is horrific. We're just as sick as anyone over this but know the healing can only begin with the truth.

By not being open to the truth you prolong the pain and suffering. Is that what you want? Hasn't there been enough?

Someday you'll realize who your true enemy is. In the meantime, that which tries to kill us only makes us stronger and reinforces our convictions. True masters of the dark side know this so you're apparently an amateur on a fool's errand.

See you on the other side.
peace & love

Hi interesting debate. This is what I think. ...only when we all realize that we are all connected, will we be able to truly help each other. I am you you are me we are all in this together. Thrashed is right as long as we continue to be divided only the 1percent wins.
