Yesterday I brushed up against the JFK assassination in my blog about the FDA’s decision to try to withhold Pfizer’s covid “vaccine” data for … oh lessee… another 55 years because the poor dears are just understaff and can’t handle more than 500 pages per day, in spite of having reviewed the same data and approving the injection for use in a mere 108 days. I noted that if the JFK documents “releases” are any guide as to what might be “released” in 2076 regarding the injections, then we can expect the usual bobbing and weaving from Swampington DC.

Turning from that to the actual assassination itself, there’s a new and fascinating article by Benjamin Cole on an interesting, and seldom-mentioned, bit of evidence against the “magic bullet” theory of the Warren Report, the ludicrous theory that a 6.5 caliber bullet struck the President from behind, exited his through, then executed a few nifty gymnastic tumbles and zig-zags, to enter governor John Connally’s body (still tumbling) and tumbled around inside him only to emerge, strike his wrist, and then somehow ended up in more or less pristine condition on a stretcher at Parkland Hospital where is was later recovered.
To this day, we’ve no idea how it got there nor who put it there (or perhaps teleported it there, or waved a wand and made it magically appear there). The bullet performed in mere seconds more tricks than a Penn and Teller Show, but it had to in order to make the “lone nut gunman” (Oswald) on the sixth floor in the schoolbook depository work.
With that in mind, ponder this article:
Not only does the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963 remain a riddle in terms of the actual perpetrators, but innumerable aspects of the case defy explanation or are simply inexplicable. As JFK researchers know, there is seemingly not a single straight line in the entire saga and that includes the confounding topic of the Arrow-brand dress shirt and the suit-jacket worn on November 22 by Governor John B. Connally.
As reported here, it was 50 years after the assassination that Connally’s shirt and suit were put on display by the Texas State Library & Archives Commission on mannequins inside a large glass enclosure.
Fortunately for researchers, the physical display in Austin in 2013 was supplemented by an extensive online photograph collection of the clothing, including a picture of the rear bullet-hole in the fabric of Connally’s shirt. The hole was helpfully measured by commission staff and labelled at “3/8th by 3/8th inches.”
Longtime JFK researcher and Connally-wounding specialist Gary Murr has provided an even better photo, one that he personally authorized the shooting of, which illustrates similar measurements for the bullet-hole. It even more clearly reveals the mysterious straight lines of cloth above and below the hole.
To this introduction, there is a picture in the article of the actual hole in Governor Connally’s shirt worn that day, which even after evident cutting around the hole for an assumed analysis, the hole measures only about 1/2 an inch wide.
There’s a huge problem with this, or more aptly, a huge hole in the Warren Commission’s Report:
In any event, the Archive and Murr photographs alone are a near death-blow to the “tumbling” or single bullet theory (SBT) theory of the JFK assassination.
Why? The large slug from a Mannlicher Carcano rifle, of Western ammo manufacture, measured a little more than a ¼ inch in diameter and 1¼ inches in length.
The Warren Commission Single Bullet Theory (SBT) posits that the slug, after first passing through JFK’s neck, then tumbled and plunked Gov. Connally sideways, on its long side.
But the bullet hole in Connally’s shirt, as measured by the Archives or in the Murr photograph, is scarcely larger than the diameter of the Western ammo slug, and moreover, is no larger, and in some respects smaller, than the bullet hole in the rear of JFK’s shirt.
Now, frankly, I’m not aware that the Warren Report did or did not say that the tumbling Magic Bullet hit Governor Connally side-on, but whether it did or did not, the main point is taken: if the bullet was tumbling at all, it would have left a much larger hole than the 3/8 inch circumference stated by the report. And with that, exit the magic bullet theory.
One would think that Governor Connally’s clothing that day would have attracted some attention long before now, they being key pieces of forensic evidence in the case. But perhaps the … uhm… ahhh… rather unusual chain of custody has something to do with it:
Long before Connally’s Arrow shirt and suit jacket ended up on display in Texas, they first, of course, visited the Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas on Nov. 22 1963.
The timeline thereafter appears to be:
- Connally’s suit jacket and shirt, but evidently not the trousers, were then mysteriously hand-carried in bloody paper bags to Washington, D.C. by Congressman Henry B. Gonzalez, who stored them in his office closet for an estimated two weeks.
- Two Secret Service agents then took the garments, but not to the FBI. Evidently on orders from the White House, the clothes were sent back to Texas and Mrs. Connally. The Governor’s wife might have washed the shirt in a tub of cold water, but more likely sent the clothes to professional cleaning service.
- Then, possibly, the shirt and coat and other garments, were sent to the Texas Archives in Austin, Texas, although this is not verified.
- The Governor’s clothes were then sent back to Washington and to the Warren Commission offices on April Fool’s Day 1964, where they were examined.
- The Connally assassination-day clothes were then finally sent on eight days later to the FBI lab, also in Washington.
Yes, the above journey is what happened to primary evidence—Connally’s shirt and suit jacket—in the assassination of a US President and serious wounding of a Texas Governor.
But wait, it gets much better. The article observes that researcher Gary Murr found a receipt for Connally’s clothing made out by a Parkland Hospital nurse to Cliff Carter, an associate of then-Vice President Lyndon Johnson. Carter in turn turned Connally’s clothes over to Texas Congressman Henry Gonzales. Gonzales maintained that he had attempted to turn the clothes over to the local Texas authorities, but had been rebuffed, and so according to his story, he carried Connally’s clothes inside the bloody paper bags that they had been put in at Parkland Hospital all the way back on his flight on Air Force Two to Washington DC. Back in Washington, Gonzales maintains that he put the clothes in a closet in his office, and attempted to contact the FBI.
