ANALYSIS: Bob Dylan's "Murder Most Foul": 17 Minutes of The TRUTH

Like nearly every single Bob Dylan fan, we spent much of yesterday repeat listening to "Murder Most Foul" and the song's 17 minutes of The TRUTH.

About as pure of 17 minutes of the truth anyone of this generation will ever find, we are beyond stunned while deliriously delighted about what this song means to us going forward all together.

But what does it mean? And why now? Critical questions that must be answered and we will try our best to lay it all down as best we can.

The full lyrics of Bob Dylan's "Murder Most Foul" can be found at Lyrics to Bob Dylan's "Murder Most Foul" + 74 song references + review links + sub-title lyrics video.

But here's the SPOILER ALERT upfront. The song explicitly details who did NOT kill U.S. President John F. Kennedy and obliquely references the true plotters (Wolf/Wink Man/Secret Service's code name for "W": TimberWolf a.k.a. "George") of "The American Coup of 1963" (which we explained in detail back on the 50th anniversary in 2013).

With a running time of 16:56 -- 4 seconds short of 17 minutes -- the song is pure TRUTH for those with open eyes and minds. Naming names. Giving dates, locations, colors and players. Thank you Bob! Glad to have you playing for our home's teams.

"Shakespearean" barely begins to describe the magnitude of this epic tale that Bob has gifted all of us with. The song takes its title from Shakespeare's play "Hamlet". In the play, Hamlet encounters his father’s ghost, who urges revenge:

"Murder most foul, as in the best it is;
But this most foul, strange and unnatural."

"This song is a masterpiece." ~~Neil Young
Times-Contrarian | Neil Young Archives

"Then they blew off his head while he was still in the car
Shot down like a dog in broad daylight"

U.S. President John F. Kennedy


(NOTE: We're drafting history in real time during these strange days. But here was our initial reaction after 1st listen yesterday on Comment of the Moment: Neil Young's Fireside Sessions #2 | NYA in response to the highly esteemed Mr Scotsman, who shared his thoughts on 2 of our 3 favorite subjects: Bob & Neil. Scotsman's insightful contributions -- once again demonstrate that Neil Young fans/rusties are some of the most knowledgeable, astute and articulate music fans out there. And we're honored and humbled to have folks like Mr Scotsman contribute here to our little TW blog.)

Whether Dylan's song "Murder Most Foul" is a "masterpiece" or "genius" is secondary to the song being the single most important artistic release statement thus far in the 21st century.

U.S. President John F. Kennedy - Berlin, Germany, 1963

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 Dylan's "Murder Most Foul" is to understand the truth of what happened that day in Dallas in 1963. And therefore, it is to understand the truth of virtually everything in the history of the American 20th century. JFK's assassination (a murder most foul, if ever) is literally and metaphorically "The Rosetta Stone" to untangling what has happened there, what is happening here, and what will happen later. Profound doesn't begin to come close as an understatement of the century.

If you understand what really happened in Dallas, Texas on November 22nd, 1963, then you can begin 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 and incredibly, exactly how the "magic" worked.[UPDATED]

Freedom Fighters
All Dead. Coincidence? Or Is There A Pattern?

"How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?

(And don't even try and get us started about what really happened in Los Angeles, California, on August 5, 1962. Or New York City on February 21, 1965. Or eastern Mediterranean sea on 8 June 1967. Or New York City on 8 December 1980. Or Miami, Florida on 11 May 1981. Or Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. Or Paris, France on 31 August 1997). Or Martha's Vineyard on July 16, 1999. On and on. See the pattern yet?!)

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.

"Put your head out the window; let the good times roll
There's a party going on behind the Grassy Knoll
Stack up the bricks, pour the cement
Don't say Dallas don't love you, Mr. President"

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.

King of Hearts

“There is a Secret Society ritual that is ‘the killing of the King.’

The national leader of the people is only a figurehead and has no real power. Power lies behind the scenes within dark secrets. Others pull the strings of the politician puppets. If an upstart, politician puppet makes waves or rocks the boat or doesn’t play ball…..that puppet gets eliminated. It is why Caesar was killed. It is why Kennedy was killed. If you disturb the real power structure, you can be targeted for removal. Such ‘assassinations’ demonstrate to the world who has the real power; it is a bloody statement of who is really in charge; and the truth is our secret rulers control from dark shadows.

(There is a reason the Ace is higher than the King in a deck of cards. The Ace represents the Secret Societies that truly run the show).”

(Excerpt from: WAS JFK KILLED BECAUSE OF ROSWELL? by Doug Yurchey)

The illusion continues to crumble...

"The day that they killed him, someone said to me, “Son,
the age of the Antichrist has just only begun.”

U.S. President John F. Kennedy - 1961
The President and the Press: Address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York City, April 27, 1961

Addressing the American Newspaper Publishers Association at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City on April 27, 1961, U.S. President John F. Kennedy said at the peak of the Cold War's Cuban Missile Crisis:
"The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.
For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.

Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know."
"[We have an] obligation to inform and alert the American people -- to make certain that they possess all the facts that they need, and understand them as well -- the perils, the prospects, the purposes of our program and the choices that we face.

Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed -- and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment-- the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution -- not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply "give the public what it wants" -- but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger public opinion."
"And so it is to the printing press -- to the recorder of man's deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news -- that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be: free and independent."
JFK - 1961

Thrasher, you have outdone yourself. This was incredibly informative. The Press Association speech alone was perfect, and oh,so timely given today's Fake News Monitor in the Shite House. Plus your selection of memes throughout.
A nice touch were the lyrics to help get through a meaningful yet monotonous Dylan stream of consciousness.

@ Syscrusher - thanks and would love to hear more. we edited this down from earlier version. would like to better understand what works and doesn't here.

This is a compilation over several decades of our research on the subjects.

@ Timmo - thanks for feedback. much appreciated. we continue to update and edit as new details emerge.

Epic post for an epic song. You sent me on a bit of youtube worm hole, haha.
I'm not getting the Wolfman reference though? I thought it was just a musical reference? Is there more to it than that?

And I thought this was a Neil site? No editing!

At 4/01/2020 09:37:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Syscrusher - thanks much for engaging here.

Yes, a NY site, but we're diverse. The Bob & Neil connection is a strong bond. So when Bob speaks, we listen.

And you saw N himself has declared MMF a "masterpiece". When was the last time N went out of his way to comment on another artists specific piece of work?

Ok, the Wolfman reference. That's the keystone here. The whole 17 minutes is about setting the table for the Wolfman revelation.

Check the captions above of LBJ being sworn in on AF1.

It's all there. Yes, a stretch for most. Code & symboliism.

But pls understand. We are discussing literally a murder most foul. Crime of the century. This is very dangerous stuff to mess with. But Bob has courage and so do we rusties. Truth will set us free finally.

The killers walk free among us and must be brought to justice.

Check caption again and get back to us.

It's all there for those with eyes to see and ears to hear. disCERNment is key.

Thank you Bob!

Hey I'm loving the Bob content, no worries there.

My "it's a Neil site" comment was a joke about you editing the longer post. Neil doesn't edit. That's more of a Bob thing. Haha Wonder what the manuscript to Murder Most Foul looks like? :)

I think wolfman would have more to do with Timber Wolf.
