Dallas and the Motorcade

~ The day began with a few comments in Fort Worth and then events moved to Dallas.

November 21, 1963 (Thursday)

Warren Commission Report – Page 42 – 3rd paragraph:
Late in the evening, the Presidential party flew to Fort Worth where they spent the night at the Texas Hotel.

November 22, 1963 (Friday)

Fort Worth, Texas

Warren Commission Report – Page 42 – 4th paragraph:
On the morning of November 22, President Kennedy attended a breakfast at the hotel and afterward addressed a crowd at an open parking lot.  The President liked outdoor appearances because more people could see and hear him.  Before leaving the hotel, the President, Mrs. Kennedy, and Kenneth O’Donnell talked about the risks inherent in Presidential public appearances.  According to O’Donnell, the President commented that “if anybody really wanted to shoot the President of the United States, it was not a very difficult job–all one had to do was get a high building someday with a telescopic rifle, and there was nothing anybody could do to defend against such an attempt.” Upon concluding the conversation, the President prepared to depart for Dallas.

8:45 a.m.
President Kennedy appears before a large crowd of two thousand on-lookers gathered in the Hotel Texas parking lot.  Governor Connally of Texas is there and Lyndon Johnson (LBJ) briefly introduces the President as “our fearless leader”.  Kennedy gives a planned and uninspired speech of 6 minutes and then works the crowd before returning into the Hotel Texas.  A light rain is falling.

9:00 a.m.
President Kennedy speaks at a large breakfast gathering in the hotel grand ballroom of the Texas Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas on Friday November 22, 1963.  The breakfast event that began at 8:00 a.m. is sponsored by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce.
9:22 a.m.
The President beckons Agent Duncan to the head table and asks him to  ask Mrs. Kennedy to come down to the ballroom and to ask the orchestra to play “The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You” when she enters.  Agent Clint Hill advises Mrs. Kennedy that JFK expects her downstairs in the Ballroom.

9:25 a.m.
Jackie Kennedy appears at the breakfast wearing a pink suit and pill box hat.  She is warmly received.  The orchestra plays “The Eyes of Texas are upon you”.

The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
All the live long day.
The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
You can not get away.
Do not think you can escape them
At night or early in the morn-
The Eyes of Texas are upon you
‘Till Gabriel blows his horn. 

9:55 a.m.
At the Texas Hotel in Fort Worth, JFK and Jackie have returned to Suite 850.  JFK informs Kenny O’Donnell that the Presidential party will leave at 10:40 a.m.  Jackie asks, “We have a whole hour?”  JFK asks her if she is enjoying the trip. “Oh, Jack,” she replies “campaigning is so easy when you’re President.”

After President Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy return to their suite shortly after 10 a.m. President Kennedy telephones former Vice President John Nance Garner at his home in Ulvade, Texas, to wish him a happy 95th birthday.  The Kennedys spent time looking at the art exhibit that had been mounted in their suite especially for their visit including a Van Gogh, a Monet, and a Picasso.

Aides point out an advertisement in the day’s Dallas Morning News accusing the President of disloyalty to the country through “softness on communism”.  At this point  Kennedy muses out loud about how easy it would be to assassinate a traveling President (See: William Manchester “Death of a President” (1967, p. 121).  Before the Kennedys depart for the motorcade, the President reiterates (on the telephone) to aide Lawrence F. O’Brien the importance of getting Senator Yarborough to ride in the same car with Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, the V.P. that had been introduced at 8:45 a.m. (two hours before) as, “the greatest Texan that ever lived.”

10:02 a.m.
John F. Kennedy confers with Governor John Connally.

10:40 a.m.
The Kennedys and Governor Connally enter a white convertible waiting in front of the Texas Hotel, a car borrowed by the Secret Service from professional golfer Ben Hogan.  There are waves and cheers from the onlookers.  The motorcade leaves for Carswell Air Force Base.

11:17 a.m.
Kennedy departs from Carswell AFB onboard Air Force One to fly to Love Field (DFW) in Dallas, Texas.  The air distance is about 35 miles.  The flight takes 13 minutes

Dallas Deputy Police Chief (of Services) George L. Lumpkin is the driver of the pilot car.  In the pilot car is Jacob L. “Jack” Puterbaugh and Lieutenant Colonel George Whitmeyer.  The pilot car is the first car in the motorcade, usually traveling about 1/4 mile (1,300 feet) (1.5 minutes at 10 mph) ahead of the main motorcade.  The Warren Commission fails to interview any of those in the pilot car.

The lead car is an unmarked four-door white 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 (police interceptor) driven by Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry.  The Presidential limousine, a 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible is the second vehicle.  The third car is the Presidential follow-up car, Secret Service car #1, a 1956 Cadillac limousine convertible carrying ten (10) aides and agents (including those on the running boards) code-named the Queen Mary.  The Vice Presidential limousine, a 1964 Lincoln Continental convertible,  is the fourth vehicle.  Vice Presidential follow-up car   Press pool car, (on loan from the telephone company)  Press Car:

The motorcade was originally scheduled to leave Love Field at 11:30 a.m.  It was anticipated that it would take between 38 and 45 minutes to reach the Dallas World Trade Mart, arriving at the Trade Mart about 12:15 at the latest.  This itinerary would put the leading cars of the motorcade at Dealey Plaza somewhere between 12:03 and 12:10, or at Dealey Plaza for a “High Noon” rendezvous.

11:50 a.m.
The presidential motorcade leaves Love Field.
The motorcade left Love Field shortly after 11:50 a.m., and proceeded through residential neighborhoods, stopping twice at the President’s request to greet well-wishers among the friendly crowds. Each time the President’s car halted, Secret Service agents from the “follow-up” car moved forward to assume a protective stance near the President and Mrs. Kennedy.

The 11 mile route of the Kennedy motorcade through Dallas was: left turn from the south end of Love Field to West Mockingbird Lane, right on Lemmon Avenue, right at the “Y” on Turtle Creek Boulevard, straight on Cedar Springs Road, left on North Harwood Street, right on Main Street, right on Houston Street, sharp left on Elm Street, through Triple Underpass, right turn up ramp to North Stemmons Freeway, to Dallas Trade Mart at 2100 North Stemmons.

11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
The motorcade follows a route through Dallas, during which the president stops the car several times to talk to citizens who approach his limousine.

12:28 p.m.
Dallas police radio channel 1, #56 Patrolman W.P. Parker, “traffic on a 1956 Chevrolet.  I can’t see the license number.”  Dallas police radio channel 2, #5 Deputy Chief of Police George L. Lumpkin, “Notify Captain Souter of the location of the convoy now.”  Dispatcher:  15/2, now on Main, probably just past Lamar.  #1 Dallas Police Chief Curry, “Just crossing Market Street.”

12:30 p.m.
President Kennedy is shot and taken to Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

1:00 a.m.
President Kennedy is pronounced dead at Parkland Hospital.

LHO Dallas Municipal Building Timeline

November 22nd, 1963

LHO Dallas Municipal Building Timeline

~ An illustrated and linked timeline relevant to Lee Harvey Oswald from the time of his arrival at the Municipal Building until the time of his departure.

Background:
Lee Harvey Oswald (“LHO”) was apprehended, arrested and taken into custody at the Texas Theatre in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, Texas in conjunction with the 1:17 p.m. shooting of Officer Tippit, a police motor patrolman employed by the Dallas Police Department.   The identification, apprehension and arrest of Oswald involved a tumultuous five (5) minute confrontation that began at 1:45 p.m. inside the theater and ended at 1:50 p.m. when a Dallas police car left the Texas Theatre with Lee Harvey Oswald enroute to the Municipal Building.  (See: LHO Texas Theatre Timeline construction pending)

It is less than 3.5 miles from the Texas Theatre to the (Dallas) Municipal Building at Main Street and Harwood Street in downtown Dallas.  The presumed police car route would be north on Jefferson Boulevard to Market Street with a right turn (east) onto Main.  (Route Map is here.)

LHO Dallas Municipal Building Timeline

November 22, 1963 (Friday)

1:58 p.m.
Oswald arrived (in Dallas Police Car 2) at the (Dallas) Municipal Building jail elevator (basement entrance) about eight (8) minutes later, at 1:58 p.m.

Rationale for the 8 minute time of the 3.5 mile trip:
Warren Commission ReportPage 649 – 10th paragraph:
The distance from the Greyhound bus terminal at Jackson and Lamar Streets to the 500 block (south of Davis Street) of North Beckley

Warren Commission ReportPage 650 – 1st paragraph:
is 2.5 miles. Oswald actually got out in the 700 block (north of Neely Street) of North Beckley. The distance was, therefore, less than 2.5 miles.  Whaley has testified to the Commission that the trip took 6 minutes. Test runs made by members of the Commission staff under traffic conditions somewhat similar to those that existed on November 22, took approximately 5 minutes and 30 seconds.

Newspaper people and “local” media already at the Municipal Building:
Warren Commission Report – Page 206 – 4th paragraph:
When the police car bringing Oswald from the Texas Theatre drove into the basement of police headquarters at about 2 p.m. on Friday, some reporters and cameramen, principally from local papers and stations, were already on hand. The policemen formed a wedge around Oswald and conducted him to the elevator, but several newsmen crowded into the elevator with Oswald and the police.

The (Dallas) Municipal Building:
The Municipal Building in Dallas is an outwardly beautiful and historic Beaux Arts building completed (built) in 1914 at 106 South Harwood Street between Main Street on the north and Commerce Street on the south.  The building faces west, where it fronts Harwood Street.

The (Dallas) Municipal Building in 1930 engraving and 1913 architectural rendering:

 

The (Dallas) Municipal Building Annex:
In 1954 a building annex was added directly to the east of the original building.  The Municipal Building Annex, as it is properly called, was completed in 1956.  The architecture of the two buildings could not be more different.

The (Dallas) Police and Courts Building:
Even though the buildings are physically, functionally and historically very different the Warren Commission Report chose to conflate the two buildings as being one and to rename the clearly named Municipal Building and the Municipal Building Annex as the “Police and Courts Building“, as the police department building or as police headquartersIt was not unlike using “The Texas Department of Education building” instead of the term “Texas School Book Depository” to refer to the structure at the northwest corner of Houston and Elm Streets in Dallas.

The (Dallas) Municipal Building jail elevator and basement ramp interface:
The buildings are joined (connected) in the basement area where the jail elevator (in the Municipal Building) connects to a “jail office” and then a short brick-lined hallway that opens to a “receiving ramp” and the “police garage” (even further to the east), both of which are a part of the 1950’s Municipal Building Annex addition.

The relationship between these two buildings at the point of the basement interface is best illustrated by this diagram created in 1964 by the FBI:

Diagram of the (Dallas) Municipal Building jail office and jail elevator and the (Dallas) Municipal Building Annex entry / egress ramp:
In this partial view of the Municipal Building and Municipal Building Annex basements the north-south (Municipal Building) Ramp (receiving ramp) is featured.  The ramp is a one-way ramp, the entrance to which is from Main Street and the exit requiring a left turn onto Commerce Street.  At the top of the diagram (west) the jail elevator is shown, as well as the Jail Office and the brick-lined hallway connecting to the ramp to the west.  Across from the hallway, to the south and west is the beginning of the downward slope to the police garage (police parking).

In the illustration the armored car and the police cars are shown in the positions they were in at the time when Lee Harvey Oswald was shot by Jack Ruby.  Otherwise, this illustration accurately depicts the same area as it was at the time when Lee Harvey Oswald was brought to the Municipal Building by Dallas Police Car 2 at 1:58 p.m. on the afternoon of November 22, 1963.
Diagram (floor plan) of the Third Floor of the (Dallas) Municipal Building – Dallas, Texas:

The top of the diagram is the WEST side of the building.  The Press Room is at the NORTH end of the building.  The offices of Chief Curry and the Assistant Chiefs of the Dallas Police Department are at the SOUTH end of the building.

Warren Commission Report – Page 196 – 3rd paragraph:
The focal center of the Police and Courts Building during Oswald’s detention was the third floor, which housed the main offices of the Dallas Police Department. The public elevators on this floor opened into a lobby midpoint of a corridor that extended along the length of the floor for about 140 feet. At one end of this 7-foot-wide corridor were the offices occupied by Chief of Police Jesse E. Curry and his immediate subordinates; at the other end was a small pressroom that could accommodate only a handful of reporters. Along this corridor were other police offices, including those of the major detective bureaus. Between the pressroom and the lobby was the complex of offices
Warren Commission Report – Page 198 – 1st paragraph:
belonging to the homicide and robbery bureau, headed by Capt. J. Will Fritz.

Diagram of the Third Floor area of the (Dallas) Municipal Building where Lee Harvey Oswald was held, interrogated and transferred:

The “Jail Elevator” is immediately next to the office of Captain Fritz and the Homicide Bureau offices on the central EAST side of the building.  The Jail Elevator connects the basement entry-egress point with both the jail cells (on other floors) and the Third Floor Homicide and Robbery Bureau Office area.

2:00 p.m.
According to the clock in the Homicide – Robbery Bureau Offices he arrived (upstairs, on the third floor) in the Homicide – Robbery Bureau Offices at 2:00 p.m.

Warren Commission Report – Page 206 – 4th paragraph:
When the elevator stopped at the third floor, the cameramen ran ahead down the corridor, and then turned around and backed up, taking pictures of Oswald as he was escorted toward the homicide and robbery bureau office. According to one escorting officer, some six or seven reporters followed the police into the bureau office.

Warren Commission Report – Page 198 – 2nd paragraph:
The policemen who seized Oswald at the Texas Theatre arrived with him at the police department building at about 2 p.m. and brought him immediately to the third floor offices of the homicide and robbery bureau to await the arrival of Captain Fritz from the Texas School Book Depository.

Video of Lee Harvey Oswald in the Dallas Municipal Building:
Video
of announcement re: arrest of Oswald in the Texas Theatre.  This video begins with footage of the entrance to the Homicide and Robbery Offices, then shows Lee Harvey Oswald being brought from the Elevator Lobby.  The arrest announcement footage appears next, followed by footage showing the “rifle on display”.  This is the weapon retrieved from the Texas School Book Depository that Captain Fritz brought back with him about 2:15 p.m. after his one and a quarter hour (1.25 hour) sojourn at the Elm and Houston location.

Warren Commission ReportCaptain J.W. Fritz Testimony:
Mr. BALL. Did you go directly to a building?
Mr. FRITZ. Directly to the Texas School Book Depository Building.
Mr. BALL. What time did you arrive there?
Mr. FRITZ. Well, sir; we arrived there—we arrived at the hospital at 12:45, if you want that time, and at the scene of the offense at 12:58.

Third Floor and Municipal Building and Municipal Building basement Annex video and film images:
Virtually all of the moving (motion) images of Lee Harvey Oswald that exist were photographed within the Municipal Building or the Municipal Building Annex.  Most of these “film clips” were shot on the third floor.  The one and a half-minute “Midnight press conference” interview was shot in the Municipal Building basement Assembly Room.  The images of Lee Harvey Oswald being transferred and shot (murdered) were taken from within the confines of the Municipal Building Annex basement ramp area, as were the last images of Lee Harvey Oswald alive as he was being moved on the ambulance stretcher.  The only other motion picture film of Lee Harvey Oswald in the Municipal Building was taken through the glass windows of the basement Jail Office as Oswald was being transferred to the basement departure ramp.

Most of the original motion film footage has been duplicated, copied and diced and spliced together to create various montages of Lee Harvey Oswald that serve the agendas of those that created these composites.  It is clear that often those that created these montages were not themselves aware of either where or when the original footage was filmed – the events of that 48 hours were too rapid and intense and often the primary news focus was on events in Washington D.C. involving Jackie, Caroline and LBJ.  The nation was distracted as the last accoutrements of a relatively free country were being laid to rest in Dallas, the new capital west of Washington.

The first key in unraveling the footage is to determine what Lee Harvey Oswald was allowed to wear.  The images of November 22, 1963 (including the midnight interview) show Oswald in a white T-Shirt and an open (apparently darker) shirt with a collar.  The Saturday images (November 23, 1963) show that the shirt has been removed from Oswald and he is allowed to wear a white T-Shirt only.  On the day of his death he is given a dark pullover sweater to wear that covers most of his upper body and makes the gun of Jack Ruby hard to see.  It is like the street wear of the Homicide Bureau, the trademark white Texas style cowboy hats; it’s all scripted and the wardrobe people were called in.

Lee Harvey Oswald wearing his November 22nd trademark shirt for the last time:

Video of the Midnight press conference held in the Municipal Building basement Assembly Room begins at 3:08 and ends at 4:37 (1.5 minutes total).

.most memorable event of November 24th would center on the Dallas Municipal Building Annex, built immediately adjacent to the beaux arts building in (or circa) 1954.The events of the day, November 24, 1963, are centered on the (Dallas) Municipal Building and about six minutes of time in the (Dallas) 

On the trail of when and where this statement was made and where in the Warren Commission Report it can be found, if it was included in the report.

The most famous Lee Harvey Oswald line was, “I am just a patsy.”  This is the last sentence in Oswald’s first meeting with the press.  The interview occurs on the Third Floor of the (Dallas) Municipal Building (aka: “Dallas Police Headquarters“) while Lee Harvey Oswald is being moved through a “hallway” that is filled with various reporters from the news media.

The footage was apparently shot by NBC News.  The original footage was “Reel 3” of a 16mm black and white film product.  There is no indication of the time of day that this footage was filmed.

OSWALD IN CUSTODY (REELS 3 & 4 OF 13)
R3: CU TOP OF ENTRANCE POLICE & COURTS BUILDING. OSWALD WITH POLICE COMES OUT OF ROOM. RPTRS ASK QUESTIONS AS HE WALKS. OSWALD SAYS HE NEEDS LEGAL REPRESENTATION BUT THE POLICE OFFICERS WONT LET ME HAVE ANY. I DONT KNOW WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. I WORK IN THAT BUILDING. NATURALLY I WAS IN THE BUILDING SINCE I WORK THERE. IM JUST A PATSY.

“I am just a patsy.” Video begins at 4:24 and ends at 5:00 minutes).

Oswald:
I’d like some legal representation but these police officers have not allowed me to, to have any. I, uh, I don’t know what this is all about.
Reporter (off camera):
Did you kill the president?
Oswald:
No, sir, I didn’t. People keep asking me that. Sir?
Reporter (off camera):
Did you shoot the president?
Oswald:
I work in that building.
Reporter (off camera):
Were you in that building at the time?
Oswald:
Naturally, if I work in that building, yes, sir.
Reporter (off camera):
Back up man (or ma’am).
Reporter (off camera):
Did you shoot the president?
Oswald:
No, they’ve taken me in because of the fact that I lived in the Soviet Union.  I’m just a patsy.

It is unclear whether the Warren Commission Report even contains this critical statement by Oswald.  The report does describe the third floor of the (Dallas) Municipal Building where the Dallas Police Department had various offices and the various Bureaus of the Dallas Police Department were physically located:
The third floor diagram, the Warren Commission descriptions, and common sense clearly demonstrate that when Oswald was moved on the third floor it was between the two points of the Jail Elevator that opened onto the Third Floor Lobby and the door to the Homicide / Robbery Bureau Offices, a total distance of about 30 feet.

The footage for the “I am just a patsy” film clip was shot with the camera looking EAST as Lee Harvey Oswald was being moved from the Third Floor (Police Department) Lobby (the Jail Elevator) to the Homicide / Robbery Bureau OfficesThis means the film footage was taken at one of four times, as described in the

Warren Commission Report – Page 198 – 2nd paragraph:
After about 15 or 20 minutes Oswald was ushered into the office of Captain Fritz for the first of several interrogation sessions. 

At 4:05 p.m. he was taken to the basement assembly room for his first lineup.  While waiting outside the lineup room, Oswald was searched, and five cartridges and other items were removed from his pockets. 

After the lineup, at about 4 :20, Oswald was returned to Captain Fritz’ office for further questioning. 

Two hours later, at 6:20 p.m., Oswald was taken downstairs for a second lineup and returned to Captain Fritz’ office within 15 minutes (6:35 p.m.) for additional interrogation. 

Shortly after 7 p.m., Captain Fritz signed a complaint charging Oswald with the murder of Patrolman Tippit

Oswald was formally arraigned, i.e., advised of the charges, at 7:10 p.m., before Justice of the Peace David L. Johnston, who came to Captain Fritz’ office for the occasion.

The Warren Commission Report does NOT record the time of the THIRD TRIP from Captain Fritz’ Office to the elevator, however it was probably about 7:30 p.m.

After a third lineup at about 7:40 p.m., Oswald was returned to Fritz’ office. 

About an hour later, after further questioning, Oswald’s fingerprints and palmprints were taken and a paraffin test administered in Fritz’ office, after which the questioning resumed. 

At 11:26 p.m. Fritz signed the complaint charging Oswald with the murder of President Kennedy. 

Shortly after midnight, detectives took Oswald to the basement assembly room for an appearance of several minutes before members of the press.

So, WE still do not know during which of the four press encounters it was that the “patsy” statement was made; but, we have noticed something else:

It is notable by this rather precise and detailed description of time and events that at no time in the 10 hours in police custody on November 22, 1963 was Lee Harvey Oswald given an opportunity to eat.  According to the descriptions provided in the Warren Commission Report Lee Harvey Oswald had not eaten since approximately 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 21st, 24 hours earlier.  It would be very difficult to believe that if Lee Harvey Oswald had NOT eaten for this period of time that he would not have added that grievance to his statements to reporters.

If he HAD eaten lunch at the time (12:15 p.m.) that he had stated, then the issue of food would not have been so pressing.  So what did Lee Harvey Oswald eat?  The answer is made clear by the testimony of his wife:

1.  217 O — 64 — vol. I —5 & 6

Mr. RANKIN. Do you know what his ordinary lunch was?
Mrs. OSWALD. Peanut butter sandwich, cheese sandwich, some lettuce, and he would buy himself a hamburger, something else, a coke.
Mr. RANKIN. And what about his evening meal?  Do you know what he ate in the evening meal?
Mrs. OSWALD. Usually meat, vegetables, fruit, dessert.
Mr. RANKIN. Where would he have that?

Mrs. OSWALD. He loved bananas. They were inexpensive.
The place where he rented a room, he could not cook there.  He said that there was some sort of a care across the street and that he ate there.
Mr. RANKIN. Did he ever tell you what he paid for his evening meal?
Mrs. OSWALD.  About a dollar, $1.30.
Mr. RANKIN. What about his breakfast? Do you know what he had for breakfast ordinarily?
Mrs. OSWALD. He never had breakfast. He just drank coffee and that is all.

So were there signs of “a hamburger” in the stomach or intestines of Lee Harvey Oswald when his autopsy was performed just a little over 48 hours after the question about “where he ate lunch” and “if he ate lunch”.  No, the autopsy failed to look into that.  The experts were more interested in obtaining slices of his brain.

There are three “down the hall” tapes.  The THIRD TAPE was filmed on Saturday, November 23, 1963 The ” tape refers to “bringing Oswald down the hallway again”.  “I don’t know what dispatches you people have been given, but I emphatically deny these charges”.

Video of first transfer to Homicide Bureau Office 3:50 – 4:10
The SECOND TAPE, “I didn’t shoot anybody”.

Video from INSIDE the BASEMENT Jail Elevator area starts at 2:28 and continues through 3:22 – 1 minute from arrival of elevator to first horn honk signaling the opening of the garage area hallway door.

Video of the ambulance arriving and leaving.

2012.03.04 – 18:50.

The suspect, a Mr. Lee Harvey Oswald, aged 24, was in police custody.  He was being held at the Dallas Police Department, one of several municipal (city) departments located in 

Of course one would not have known these things at the time, or even after reading the Warren Commission Report.   The focus in the news and in the report was on “the police headquarters” and “the jail” and later “the Police and Courts Building” and the names of the police men who had the suspected assassin in secure and safe custody until something suddenly happened to dispel the complacency of those that believed in law and order, good police work and justice, and that the “truth would out” (at least in the lifetimes of those that were witnesses to the history).

I was fourteen years of age at the time.  I lived in Nevada.  I was a sophomore in High School and made my “living” by selling newspapers every day after school.  I had more than a passing interest in both politics and the news.

I had never been to Dallas.  I was dependent on the descriptions, the diagrams and maps, the images that the media sent me in my effort to picture or to visualize what was happening in the world with Dallas as the lens.  The lens (that day) showed this:

Lee Harvey Oswald is shot.  For those watching television that morning in Nevada it was an opportunity to witness “the first live murder ever broadcast on television”.  I did not see it live.  Lee Harvey Oswald did not die in the basement garage of the Dallas Municipal Building Annex.  He died away from the lenses of the cameras, in Parkland Memorial Hospital where his second child had been born just 35 days earlier.

If one believes the Warren Commission Report it was by the most amazing of occurrences that Lee Harvey Oswald died.  Had Jack Ruby entered the basement garage just 30 seconds later he would have not been able to shoot Oswald.  Had the police lined up as instructed the attempt would have failed.  Had there been even two guards at the Main Street entrance to the garage Jack Ruby could never had gotten in.  Had the one guard, Officer Roy Eugene Vaughn, not been distracted by the police car driven by Lieutenant Rio S. Pierce Jack Ruby could not have slipped into the garage.

What is amazing is that neither the Warren Commission nor most of the press seemed to be versed in even the most basic of geography.  While the Municipal Building is clearly identified as such on three sides of the building the Warren Commission consistently uses alternate descriptions and names.  It would be like using “Press Secretary” instead of the term “White House” to refer to news regarding the Executive Branch in Washington D.C.

 

1956 Presidential limousine

October 1st, 1956

1956 Presidential limousine

~ The Queen Mary (II) was a 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 convertible.

The custom regarding presidential limousines is that the cost of the car is borne by the automobile manufacturer and then the car is rented to the White House for $500 per year.  Evidence suggests that this protocol applied to the United States Secret Service (USSS) regarding limousines that were obtained primarily for the fulfillment of the task of protecting the President pursuant to the Presidential Protective Division (U.S. Code 82-79).

1956
Two identical presidential Cadillac limousines were built by GM using the 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 convertible which were then modified and customized for GM and at GM’s expense by Hess and Eisenhardt of Cincinnati (Rossmoyne), Ohio.  The chassis numbers for these vehicles is unknown.

Each of the 1956 Cadillac presidential parade cars were 21 feet long and weighed 7,000 pounds.  They had a Series 56-86 commercial chassis characterized by a 158 inch wheelbase and a 365 cubic inch, 305 horsepower V-8 engine.  The cars reportedly could reach speeds of up to 115 miles an hour.

These presidential convertibles were equipped with a large externally mounted siren, side running boards, oscillating grill mounted red lights, a built-in gun rack, pistol holders and “run flat” tires as well as special communications equipment.

1956
October 1, 1956

Apparently through the traditional $500 per year rent process the General Motors Corporation (GMC) provided two Cadillac limousine convertibles to the White House on or about October 1, 1956, during the Eisenhower presidency.  These two presidential limousines were primarily for use in the protection of the President of the United States, President Dwight David Eisenhower, where increased protective ground motor transportation was expedient or necessary.

Shown here is a reproduction of the October 1, 1956 District of Columbia automobile title form showing that the owner of the 1956 Cadillac 8600 model car is the General Motor Corporation.

GM had built two Cadillac presidential limousines in 1938 for use by President Franklin Roosevelt.  Although these two cars were different from one another, they were similar enough to need separate designations, hence one was dubbed the “Queen Mary” and the other the “Queen Elizabeth” after two of the largest ships of the day – “boats” that were large, conspicuous, difficult to turn around and that carried a lot of passengers.

In 1956 the two new identical Cadillacs were referred to as “Queen Mary II” and “Queen Elizabeth II” to further the tradition.  The “Queen Mary II” was the Secret Service vehicle 679-X that was the “presidential follow-up car” in the Kennedy motorcade that went through Dallas on November 22, 1963.  The “Queen Mary II” (679-X) was also the presidential limousine that was used in the Warren Commission reenactment of the Kennedy Assassination.

1957
October 17, 1957

On October 17, 1957 Queen Elizabeth (II) (the “real person” Queen Elizabeth II) arrived in Washington D.C. and rode in a presidential motorcade parade up Pennsylvania Avenue on her way to the White House.  In the following two photographs of the 1957 Queen Elizabeth Washington Parade the two 1956 Cadillac limousine convertibles can easily be seen.  This is the first time that the “Queen Elizabeth II” (the car) and Queen Elizabeth II (the person) ever came together.  The Queen Elizabeth II (the ship) had not yet been built.

In the picture above you can see the two 1956 Cadillac limousine convertibles with four secret service men riding on the sideboards as they follow President Eisenhower and Queen Elizabeth in the 1950 Lincoln Cosmopolitan bubble top open air Presidential limousine (See photograph below).  The distinctive tower of the Old Post Office building on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. can be clearly seen (through the arch) in the background.

Even the most determined conspiracy theorist could never have imagined a picture such as this.  A temporary arch in the shape of a pyramid was built over Pennsylvania Avenue to “Welcome Queen Elizabeth II”.  The Apex of the pyramid nicely frames the capitol, as this photograph clearly shows.  It is assumed that the banner was to bring attention to “the person” and not the capitol or “the car” (the 1956 Cadillac) seen directly below (the sign).   In 1957 the press moved ahead of (and with) the President in open trucks, in 1963 (in Dallas) the press followed in cars and buses.

1963
November 22, 1963

Six years later we see the leading edge of the 1956 Cadillac limousine “Queen Mary” following a newer Presidential Lincoln limousine in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.  This time it is a Lincoln Continental bubble top, with the back “bubble” removed.  The press (and all their cameras) are moving in cars and buses considerably behind.

Note the very conspicuous bus in this picture, allowed to park in the parade route for both Kennedy’s (and the public) to clearly see, “Welcome to Big ‘D’ (meaning Dallas)” the sign says, “National Headquarters – Dr. Pepper Company”.  Within 30 minutes of the time this picture was taken a Dr. Pepper bottle will be “found” on the Sixth Floor of the Texas School Book Depository building within a few feet of from where President Kennedy was said to be shot.  I hope someone got the intended message.

In a photograph taken about two minutes later the 1956 Cadillac limousine Secret Service car 679-X “Queen Mary” is photographed in this frame at the stroke of 12:30, just moments before the sound of the first shot (or “back fire“) in the Kennedy assassination.  The red arrow points to the head of Secret Service agent Hickey who is riding on the rear support platform on the left side of the Secret Service car.  He and two other agents (on the car) clearly find something interesting near the dark doorway to the Texas School Book Depository located right behind the tree clearly pictured.

1964
May 24, 1964

On May 24, 1964 the Warren Commission used the car 679-X “Queen Mary II” to “reenact” the November 22, 1963 assassination of President Kennedy at Dealy Plaza in Dallas, Texas.  Why they used a 1956 Cadillac when they might have used a 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible like JFK was really riding in is anyone’s guess.  Maybe they could have used the 1964 Lincoln Continental convertible that Lyndon Baines Johnson was riding in, the year would be wrong, but a Lincoln would have been closer to the mark, or the idea, or something.

The idea of the reenactment was not to recreate anything, it was to attempt to prove that the LHO lone gunman theory could have happened.   For film footage of this event that makes the Zapruder film look good see here.  But our 1956 “star car” is still the center of attraction.

Don’t you just love “living” color?   Here is our old friend the “Queen Mary” or really the Queen Mary II all dressed up in her 9P 406 plates, meaning license plates that is.  Someone should use the plate number to find a registration, maybe even a chassis number and a bill of sale or a certificate of ownership, SOMETHING.

While on the topic of color; do you remember back when Hollywood was “colorizing” all those old black and white pictures and film because they “looked better”, “more life-like”, not just “art” – that sort of thing.  Just wondering “why” haven’t these good people gone back and colorized all the JFK assassination photographs and film so that we could get a really good idea of what color shirt people were really wearing.  Oh yeah, I forgot, science just isn’t there yet.

1964
September 24, 1964

On September 24, 1964 the report by the Warren Commission was released (Warren Commission Report).  In their haste to get the report published and released before the 1964 elections a few mistakes were made.  Things as basic as the model year of a car (an important car) were misreported.  The 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Presidential limousine was reported as being, “a 1955 Cadillac eight-passenger convertible”.  There were only five passengers on board that day in Dallas, two Presidential aides and three Secret Service agents, one of which (George Hickey) had obviously left his seat by the time he got toHouston and Elm Street.

Warren Commission Report – Page 45 – paragraph 4:
Presidential follow-up car.–This vehicle, a 1955 Cadillac eight-passenger convertible especially outfitted for the Secret Service, followed closely behind the President’s automobile. 

Not to worry, the Warren Commission didn’t even bother to point out that the (LBJ) Vice President’s Lincoln Continental convertible was a brand new 1964 model car, three years newer than the car in which the President of the United States was riding in.   (See: same page as above, last paragraph.)

As you can guess, time passes and old cars can be restored even when old nations can’t be.  Below you see the 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 (modified) by adding a modified siren / red light combination unit that never appeared in any of the pictures shown previously.  Maybe this is the “1955” car that the Warren Commission was referring to, if only in their dreams.

2006

These pictures seem to be taken at the “Auto Collections” at the Imperial Palace casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.   A current visit to their website indicates that they no longer have this car in their collection.  Cars in this collection seem to be available for purchase, making the Imperial Palace location more of a used car showroom than an automobile museum of the kind that Bill Harrah used to have in the 1960’s in Reno, Nevada.

The question is, “where is the Queen Mary II now?”  And while we are at it, “where is the “sister ship”, the Queen Elizabeth II?”  Like facts in the Kennedy Assassination, things keep moving around.

1957
October 17, 1957

As promised above, a photograph of the 1950 Lincoln Cosmopolitan bubble top Presidential Limousine:

This photograph was taken as President Eisenhower and Queen Elizabeth (II) were leaving Andrews Air Force Base for Washington.  The airplane in the background is the Columbine II, the Presidential plane, a Lockheed Aircraft Constellation.  It had recently arrived (at the time of this picture) from Williamsburg, Virginia where the Queen had come in to from Canada to observe the 350th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown (in 1607).

The Rockefeller project of Williamsburg and Jamestown was obviously more important than the capital of Washington D.C. and the United States President.  The Brits had burned the capital and the White House in 1812 and weren’t sure that the city had really recovered.  Nevertheless, bye gones were left to be bye gones and unlike with Kennedy in Dallas all really did seem forgiven.

Like all good Fords this 1950 Presidential Lincoln Cosmolitan ends up in the Henry Ford Museum, “heaven” for all cars that “serve” and don’t just “wait”.  If you’re not born a Ford, there may not be a Ford Museum in your future which I guess is why the U.S. taxpayers had to bail GM out – no sense of history so everything was lost (or at least perhaps should have been).

Authors note:
I lived in Washington D.C. in 1957 and saw the Queen Elizabeth parade mentioned herein, and saw the cars named after the ships.  I have stayed several times aboard the HMS Queen Mary (after it became a Hotel) in California.  I believe that one of the two 1956 Cadillacs discussed was on board the C-130 transport that accompanied Eisenhower (MATS Airforce 1) when he visited Afghanistan in January of 1959.  My father flew in this plane when it left Kabul.  I visited Dallas several times in the 1980’s.  I was in Jamestown in 1957 and have stayed in Williamsburg.  I worked for Bill Harrah, prepared food for use on his planes, and knew people that worked in his auto collection, the finest automobile collection in the world at the time (except for that perhaps of Henry Ford).

The opinions expressed are mine, but the world and the famous people in it are looking a bit different now and I do wonder if I might have been happier just staying in Carson City and raising chickens.

BIRTH OF ELI SANDERS

The birth of Eli Sanders, father of Bernard ‘Bernie’ Sanders, occurs in ‘Poland’, meaning the Polish region of the Russian Empire (1900 boundaries).  Eli’s parents are Leon Sander and Ettel Horn (Ethel Horn).

“Their grandfather (meaning Leon Sander), who was born in Poland, was an active trade unionist.”
The New York Times – May 4, 2015.

Click on this map of Poland and Lithuania to enlarge.

Eli Sanders, born in Poland (then a part of the Russian Empire), has as his birth date, a date just before the time of the 1905-1907 Polish Revolution.
The Jews of Capitol Hill: A Compendium of Jewish Congressional Members (+) –  page 483 is a primary source of information regarding the location of birth, i.e. Poland.

The date of birth for Eli Sanders is December 1, 1900.  The date of death for Eli Sanders is October 6, 1965.  Eli Sanders is buried at Long Island National Cemetery (+) in East Farmingdale, New York, a distance of 36 miles from Brooklyn, New York.

Note:  The 1940 Census information states that Eli Sanders was 36 years old on April 10, 1940, an age at least 12 years older than his wife.  She probably believed that her husband was only 8 years older, hence the discrepancy.

BIRTH OF DOROTHY GLASSBERG (DOROTHY GLASSBU]\

[”RG)

The birth of Dorothy Glassberg (also: Dorothy Glassburg, married name Dorothy Sanders), mother of Bernard ‘Bernie’ Sanders, occurs in New York, New York.
1940 US Census
is the source of information regarding the ‘estimated’ date – April 10, 1940.
Her parents were Benjamin Glassberg and Brayna Greenberg (‘Bessie’ Greenberg), both were ‘Russian Jews’.  Dorothy was born at an unknown location in New York City.

Note:  Assuming that Dorothy, “died at age 46, when Bernie was 19,” as reported by Mark Leibovich, writing for the New York Times Magazine on January 21, 2007, then Dorothy could not have been born in 1913, as ‘Bernie’ Sanders did not turn 19 until September 8, 1960, and 46 years before that date was September 8, 1914.

ELI SANDERS LEAVES POLAND FOR A NEW LIFE IN NEW YORK CITY

Eli Sanders, father of Bernard ‘Bernie’ Sanders leaves Poland, “at age 17,” “after his family had been wiped out in the Holocaust,” (in 1917 or 1918).


Poland from 1918 until September 1939

The Jews of Capitol Hill: A Compendium of Jewish Congressional Members (+) –  page 483 is the source for both the age of when Eli left Poland and for the Holocaust claim.
The Jewish Telegraphic Agency also cites ‘Bernie Sanders’ as stating that his father came from Poland at age 17. 
June 10, 2015.

Note:  It is generally believed that the Holocaust did not begin until 1935, and before World War II it was confined to Germany.  Poland was not invaded by Germany until 1939.  The Polish Invasion is generally considered the start of World War II.

Assuming that the date of birth for Eli Sanders, of December 1, 1900, is correct, then the year for leaving Poland would be 1918, pursuant to the ‘October 1917 Bolshevik Revolution’.  This would suggest that the ‘holocaust’ referred to by Kurt Stone was actually the Bolshevik purge of  counter-revolutionaries.

Nevertheless, Mark Leibovich, writing for the New York Times Magazine stated on January 21, 2007, that, “Sanders’s parents were Jewish immigrants from Poland.  His father, Eli, a struggling paint salesman who saw his family wiped out in the Holocaust.”  Assuming that Leibovich is right, Dorothy Glassburg (Dorothy Glassberg) was also born in Poland, and not in America as has been claimed.  It should be noted that since Russia controlled Poland at this time, “Russian Jews” and “Polish Jews” were one and the same if they came from Polish territory.

On April 30, 2015, Sputnik International enjoined ‘further clarification’ by pointing out (falsely proclaiming) that: “His father, Eli Sanders, immigrated from Poland after witnessing family members falling victim to the Holocaust in World War II.”

MARRIAGE OF ELI SANDERS & DOROTHY GLASSBERG

Eli Sanders and Dorothy Glassburg were probably married in the year 1934.  Based on the reported age of Bernie Sanders at the time of Dorothy’s death, she was born in the year 1914 or 1915.  She may have been younger than 20 when she was married, but the 1934 date assumes she was 20.  Her husband, Eli Sanders was possibly 34, but she probably believed he was closer to 30.

JAMES MADISON HIGH SCHOOL ELECTION

Bernard Sanders (Bernie Sanders), “finished a distant third when he ran to be president of his class at James Madison High School in Brooklyn.”
Mark Leibovich, writing for the New York Times Magazine on January 21, 2007.

“It was the late 1950s, and Sanders was still a teenager, running to be class president at James Madison High School in Brooklyn, New York. His platform promised to raise scholarship money for kids in Korea orphaned during the recent war. ‘It was an unusual thing for a person so young to be involved in,’ remembers Larry Sanders (Lawrence Sanders), Bernie’s older brother. When the votes were tallied, Bernie fell short and lost. However, the winner (of the class election) adopted the Korean scholarship idea and made it happen.”

BERNIE COLLEGE SUMMARY – 23rd BIRTHDAY

“In Chicago, Sanders threw himself into activism—civil rights, economic justice, volunteering, organizing. ‘I received more of an education off campus than I did in the classroom,’ Sanders says. By his 23rd birthday, Sanders had worked for a meatpackers union, marched for civil rights in Washington D.C., joined the university socialists and been arrested at a civil rights demonstration. He delivered jeremiads to young crowds. The police called him an outside agitator, Sanders said. He was a sloppy student, and the dean asked him to take a year off. He inspired his classmates. ‘He knows how to talk to people now,’ said Robin Kaufman, a student who knew Sanders in 1960s Chicago, ‘and he knew how to do it then.’ He was a radical before it was cool.”

BERNARD SANDERS VOX INTERVIEW

‘Bernie’ Sanders, in a July 16, 2015 interview with Ezra Klein, at an unidentified location said, “One way which I find intriguing is that you basically provide $100 for every citizen in the United States of America, and you say to that person, ‘Here’s your hundred bucks, you can make a contribution, you can get a $100 tax credit if you spend $100 on any candidate you want.'” – United States Senator from Vermont and Democratic presidential candidate ‘Bernie’ Sanders.
Vox Policy and PoliticsJuly 30, 2015.

Two Minute Analysis:  320 million Americans times $100 is $32 BILLION dollars.  But since it is a ‘tax credit’, (probably good only for those 35% that itemize deductions) that means that at least 208 million Americans would not benefit, and of those that would, it’s statistically mostly the rich, and the VERY rich according to the graph linked.
