Revisiting history: Did Jack Ruby predict the America of today? | Veterans Today

I tell you that a whole new form of government is going to take over the country and I know I won’t live to see you another time.”–Jack Ruby Jack Ruby, the man who shot accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy Lee Harvey Oswald, said in his interview with the Warren Commission the investigative team appointed by the federal government to probe the Kennedy assassination on June 7th, 1964:

“Everything pertaining to what’s happening has never come to the surface. The world will never know the true facts of what occurred or my motives. The people that had so much to gain and had such an ulterior motive for putting me in the position I’m in will never let the true facts come above board to the world.

 

Gentlemen, I want to tell you the truth, but I cannot tell it here. If you want a fair shake out of me you have to take me to Washington. I tell you that a whole new form of government is going to take over the country and I know I won’t live to see you another time.”

Nearly half a century later, these words continue to haunt the United States and continue to raise questions. Were they simply the musings of a grief-stricken raving lunatic, or were they the words of a man ready to blow the whistle that was following orders and not there by happenstance?

 

 

 

 

The words themselves, especially his quote regarding ‘a new form of government’ still to this day sounds a little far out there.

But when really thinking about it and analyzing other similar quotes from the time and looking at U.S. politics and policy, both foreign and domestic, since that time, one can see that Jack Ruby’s testimony to the Warren Commission may not have been ‘out there’ at all.

 

 

 

A strong case can be made that he actually knew a great deal more than history has led us to believe and that he was trying to genuinely warn this country about the events that had just transpired and what they were going to mean to the future of this nation.Were there any other notable contemporaries in the late 1950s and early 1960s in America saying similar things to what Jack Ruby said in his interview with the Warren Commission?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Surprisingly there actually were.In 1960, President Dwight Eisenhower gave an eloquent address to the nation which included the following statement: “Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment.

 

We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society…………

 

EXCERPT!!!!! !!!!!!

    I ws a Junior in High School and walking in the halls of my school when I heard that Kennedy had been shot over the PA System.

    At the age of 21, I later married a high school sweetheart and moved to Oceanside, CA. He was in the Marines there. When He go out, we went back to Ft. Worth. He wanted to introduce his new bride to his uncle in Dallas living in a very expensive area…Turtle Creek..

    The first thing that the uncle did after we got there was go to his office to retrieve a photograph of Lee Harvey Oswald from his desk. It was a “TIME-DATE STAMPED PHOTO OF OSWALD standing at the “FOOT” of the building he supposedly shot Kennedy from. That was his “Get Out of Jail Free Card.”

    Unless historians or other scholars can refute what Professor John Chandler Griffin has revealed Abraham Lincoln, Republican candidate for the …in Abraham Lincoln’s Execution, the history not only of the administration of the 16th President of the U.S. and his death at the hands of John Wilkes Booth will have to be rewritten, but also that of the American Civil War.

    Griffin, professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina, has revisited what happened in the 1860’s for two basic purposes: first, to demonstrate that members of Lincoln’s cabinet were implicated with the Confederate Secret Service in the murder of Lincoln (which is why Griffin calls it an execution in lieu of an assassination); and, second, to demolish the standard mythology re the character of Lincoln and his motives in instigating the military action that metastasized into all-out civil war.
