Presidential campaign confidant and top Republican political operative Roger Stone says recently resurfaced tapes of 37th President Richard Nixon suggest that the former leader of the free world knew that the Central Intelligence Agency was involved in the assassination of 35th President John F. Kennedy in 1963.
The longtime Trump ally’s assertion came in response to a taped conversation between President Nixon and former CIA Director Robert Helms which took place around lunchtime on October 8, 1971, in which President Nixon stated:
“The whole ‘who shot John’ [JFK] thing, is Eisenhower to blame? Is Johnson to blame? Is Kennedy to blame? Is Nixon to blame? Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, may become, may become, not by me, but may become a very, very vigorous issue.”
Nixon continued, “If it does, uh, I need to know what is necessary to protect our inquiries, the intelligence gathering, and the ‘Dirty Tricks Department.’ And I will protect it. Hey listen, I’ve done more than my share of lying to protect it. I will go, I believe it’s totally right to do it.”

An excerpt of President Nixon’s remarks with the former CIA Director has since received more than 40 thousand views after being posted on Twitter by independent journalist and conservative activist David J. Reilly on Monday.
Speaking exclusively to Valiant News, Reilly explained that he came upon the Nixon-Helms tapes while conducting extensive research on President Kennedy’s death, unearthing troves of declassified documents that have largely gone unnoticed.
According to Reilly, “the assassination of JFK marked the end of an era of innocence and trust in government, and the beginning of an era of skepticism, turmoil and ultimately, the end of America’s sovereignty.”
“It is absolutely critical that the American people get to the bottom of the ‘who shot John thing’ because the effects of President Kennedy’s assassination are still being felt today,” Reilly said.
When asked who he believes is responsible for the murder of the 35th President of the United States, Reilly avoided naming a culprit. “Dimona. It was all about Dimona,” he stated.
“My sources involved with the National Archives have told me that there are over 500 hours of recordings that are still redacted and unreleased from the Nixon tapes, and that his conversations about the Middle-East, including Israel, remain the most heavily redacted of all the files during that time period,” Reilly added.
Stone, former Nixon campaign aide and author of The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ (2013) responded to Reilly’s tweet within the hour, stating that the tapes reveal that President Nixon had knowledge of the agency’s apparent role in the young president’s untimely slaying.
There it is. Nixon telling the CIA Director that he knows the agency was involved in the murder of JFK. https://t.co/l22JqUKDCz

“There it is,” Stone exclaimed. “Nixon telling the CIA Director that he knows the agency was involved in the murder of JFK.”
The subject of President Kennedy’s assassination was thrusted into the conservative mainstream conversation after Fox News host Tucker Carlson last month revealed that a source “deeply familiar” with decades-long hidden CIA documents informed him that the elusive agency was involved with the president’s horrific televised murder.
Reacting to Carlson’s segment in a tweet that amassed a staggering 5.5 million views, Robert F. Kennedy Jr, the nephew of President Kennedy, called it “The most courageous newscast in 60 years.”
“The CIA’s murder of my uncle was a successful coup d’etat from which our democracy has never recovered,” Kennedy wrote.

During his JFK segment, Carlson dived into the circumstances surrounding the “shoddy and corrupt” Warren Commission Report released by the administration of President Kennedy’s successor, 38th President Lyndon B. Johnson, the origins of the term “conspiracy theory,” and the CIA’s quiet employment of Louis Jolyon West — the psychiatrist who declared Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassin Jack Ruby to be “technically insane.”
Today we spoke to someone who had access to the still-hidden JFK files, and is deeply familiar with their contents. We asked this person directly: did the CIA have a hand in the murder of John F. Kennedy?
Here’s the reply: "The answer is yes. I believe they were involved." pic.twitter.com/3EURZcsaR2

Carlson drew reference to the 1976 Congressional committee tasked with investigating President Kennedy’s death which concluded that the killing was “the result of a conspiracy,” as well as the 1992 passing of the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act mandating the “full disclosure of all documents by 2017, 54 years after JFK was killed.”
The Fox News host noted that both the Trump and Biden administrations ultimately withheld “thousands of pages of CIA documents” pertaining to JFK’s death despite the 1992 law, with the latter being pressured by former CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
When inquired about Carlson’s JFK segment during a January interview with Revolver News founder Darren Beattie, 45th President Donald Trump explained why his administration did not release the entirety of the CIA’s JFK documents, most which can be accessed on the National Archives website.
“I did release the Kennedy stuff, then somebody said ‘not all of it, and I said, ‘well, I told them to release all of it,’ you know. I did release the Kennedy stuff – no, I think it’s time as far as I’m concerned. It’s time,” Trump told Beattie.
Asked about Pompeo’s involvement in hindering the full release, President Trump acceded that the former Secretary of State may have played a part.
“As far as I was concerned, releasing it was good. They said some people were still living and you know, this and that,” said Trump. “They always have an excuse,” he lamented, adding that he will release all of the documents if he wins reelection in 2024.

Those of us that were alive on that catastrophic day will never forget the heartache of a nation and likewise, numerous people across the entire world felt the same. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was serving in the USN on the Destroyer, USS Mullinex, and President Kennedy was my Commander in Chief. At that time in America, patriotism was high and the love of the country was foremost in a sailor’s mind, my mind. I still feel the sorrow of the loss of our President. Nothing was ever the same nor felt the same after that murder in Dallas. The country has not yet stopped mourning that loss, the innocence of the nation was laid bare.

I was just leaving submarine school when we got the news. I drove from Groton, CT to Miami, FL on leave and watched the country die. Sat in my girl friends couch and watched Ruby shoot Oswald. As a roman once said to Christ “What is truth?”.
Is this true? Did Johnson set this up? Did Castro do it? Was it the CIA? Russia?
What about all the other deaths around his killing?

Amazing how no one discusses the 900-pound gorilla in the center of this living room: “Dimona.” To wit:
“When asked who he believes is responsible for the murder of the 35th President of the United States, Reilly avoided naming a culprit. “Dimona. It was all about Dimona,” he stated.”
Dimona is the Israeli atomic-bomb facility.
The Kennedys had many enemies, and Oliver Stone’s “JFK” portrays many of them. BUT this film was financed by an Israeli (vicious arms dealer Arnon Milchan) and directed by the half-jewish Stone as a diversion from ACCUSING the main enemy of the Kennedy family, The Jewish State of Israel and its powerful lobby in the US, later called AIPAC.
Michael Collins Piper solved this “”Who killed JFK?” 30 years ago in his masterpiece “Final Judgment.”
The Kennedys were very discreetly just as antisemitic as their father had been, the patriarch and isolationist Joseph Kennedy, Senior. And for good reasons they forbade the brutal Israelis to acquire the atomic bomb.
Lyndon Baines Johnson was, however equally discreet about being jewish via his mother, Rachelle Baines, and a fierce friend of Israel. Jack Ruby — who murdered the totally innocent Oswald (who adored John Kennedy) so he could be blamed and framed for the murder — was born Jack Rubinstein, and was an associate of jewish mega-gangster Meyer Lansky, who after his death was buried in Israel.
Kennedy was killed by Johnson, the FBI and CIA for many reasons, with the approval of Nixon, George HW Bush, the Mafia, the US arms industry, rightwing Cubans, and southern segregationists, but the biggest factor was that Israel wanted to get The Bomb.
It did get it because Kennedy was gone. So, just as Kennedy feared, Israel keeps on savagely crushing the Palestinians — and the Mideast remains a violent, dangerous mess.
We almost had WWIII with the Soviets in 1973 over US carte blanche support for Israel in the Yom Kippur War!
“Dimona” is indeed the most correct of all the correct answers.

Mr. de Nugent your paragraph regarding Johnson the Fbi & Cia is correct. The reason being Kennedy had informed People that Johnson
was not going to be his running mate in 64 Forcing Johnson to say
Oh my I’m never going to be President We’ll fix that and so it went
Considering Johnson had been in Washington since 1937 He had many allies that would join in and one of his be3st friends was J Edgar
Hoover as tyhe plot thickened. Thank you de Nugent

Corruption existed then but has continued to grow at this time. The confidence in our government now is in decline and is presently lower than 50% approval Our Republic no longer exists!!!!!!
January 15, 2023 at 12:17 pm
The corruption still exists. Just look at what has gone on in the last two years. There is no question that the Fake Bureau of Infestation and the DO inJustice were involved in manipulating the past two elections. Now, the powers that be fear the people will revolt like in Brazil. The recent shutdown of the airlines was a test to see if they could shut down the country if something like that happened here. The government is no longer our friend. If it ever was…

Read “Final Judgement” by Michael Collins Piper. It has thousands of footnotes and names the CIA and the country involved in the assassination. This nation also attacked the USS Liberty and the World Trade Center. This country also controls Congress
