No Closure: No National Unity, Perhaps Ever Again — An Opinion Piece


The nature of society changed because of JFK assassination conspiracy theories.

*Originally published November 2020* 1963 was a pivotal year that still reverberates in 2020. In November of that year, a handful of days before Thanksgiving, President John Kennedy was shot and killed. Unknown by many people today, the mystery surrounding his death was solved completely 30 years later in 1993 and presented in the book Case Closed, by Gerald Posner.

Case Closed but Hardly Anyone Knows

In Case Closed, investigative reporter Gerald Posner walks the reader through every conceivable detail of the case. He shows conclusively how and why, Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone, committed the crime. He explains how the “magic bullet” took the angles that ballistics predicted, which has since been confirmed repeatedly with today’s high technology equipment.

Noted historian William Manchester, after reading Posner’s book, said that he couldn’t imagine anyone having any further doubt about the fact that Lee Harvey Oswald, on his own, assassinated JFK.

U.S. News & World Report found Posner’s work to be so convincing that the magazine would never feature another “who shot JFK?” book review again. Yet, 27 years after Case Closed, new mythology and conspiracy theories about who killed Kennedy is still being be concocted and added to the glut of information you can’t use, information which serves no one.

Currently, the “who shot JFK?” industry earns millions of dollars annually, with the potential to go higher, intermittently fed by more TV show “investigations,” authors, books, and tours.

Closure Matters

Don’t regard the misinformation surrounding JFK’s death lightly. The nature of society changed as nearly an entire generation suspected that a conspiracy, perhaps a government-led conspiracy, might have brought down the leader of the free world, in broad daylight. Who knew what level of cynicism about government, the press, and truth itself would ensue?

Thirty years after JFK’s death, in 1993, when Posner assembled irrefutable evidence about the single assassin responsible, hardly anyone knew, or worse, actually cared. In 2007, Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy Hardcover, by skilled prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi, further laid to rest what Gerald Posner had already proved.

Yet, a majority of the U.S. population still believes that President Kennedy’s assassination was the result of some type of conspiracy. In other words, the case has been long solved without any sense of national closure.

No National Unity, Forevermore?

I submit to you, that the nature of your life was altered, even if you were born well after 1963, as a result of the unreality, misinformation, and cultural in-completion that have glutted society’s receptors.

This situation represents more than a mystery for the uninformed: It potentially signals the start of Baby Boomers and Gen Xers unwittingly entering an era where no issue is ever settled. And that has impacted our psyches.

Aren’t we supposed to be able to fully investigate such events, especially those that shook a generation, a nation, and the world? What unrecognized psychological scars has the lack of closure surrounding the JFK assassination stamped into our collective cerebrums?

When major cases aren’t closed, when everything just lingers on and on, everyone suffers. The results of the 2000 presidential election in Florida, with its endless legal motions, and court appeals has spawned debates, arguments, and accusations that exist to this day and no doubt will linger on for years.

Currently, most people on the Right understands how widespread the Democrat’s election fraud and criminality happens to be, perhaps not merely in 2020, but in earlier elections. Concurrently, those on the Left, ensconced in the mainstream media bubble that has perpetrated hoax after hoax for four years, deny that any such schemes have occurred. In any case, the 2020 election will be highly contentious for the rest of our history, and leave its mark on each of us.

All of History Up for Grabs

The media wins, the pundits win, one candidate wins or steals a win, but everyone else loses. The contemporary turf wars fought in this age of in-completions, particularly in the political arena, retroactively now extend to virtually everything that ever happened, whether you’re assessing U.S. history, the formation of our nation, world history, the origins of Islam, the origins of Christianity, and so forth.

When every inch of political terrain is contested everywhere, around the clock, and when all public discourse is subject to interpretation, reinterpretation and revision, and nothing is final, wears on humanity and notably trickles down to the level of the individual.

History occurs on a macro level, but no closure leaves its mark on each of us.

According to the most recent numbers, more Americans have died from the coronavirus than died in combat during WWI, WWII, the Korean, and Vietnam wars combined.

China should be thrilled. They’ve killed more Americans than all our modern wars combined.

Per Breitbart News:

There have been 673,472 deaths in the United States due to the Chinese coronavirus, more than the combined numbers of American military lives lost during battle in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

As of Sunday afternoon, Johns Hopkins University & Medicine reported 42,050,638 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 673,472 deaths.

In November 2020, the Department of Veterans Affairs recorded 53,402 battle deaths in World War I, 291,557 battle deaths in World War II, 33,739 battles deaths in the Korean War, and 47,434 battle deaths during the Vietnam War.

The combined number of battle deaths in the four wars totaled 426,132.

Recently an artist created a performance piece featuring small white flags to help visualize the death toll.

“This week, over 660,000 white flags were put on display in a tribute at the National Mall in Washington, DC, to represent the lives lost during the pandemic for an exhibit titled, In America: Remember, the New York Post reported Friday,” Breitbart added.

“The 20-acre installation — which was unveiled Friday near the Washington Monument — is the second chilling exhibit that artist Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg said is based on a project trying to capture the ‘human dignity’ behind the staggering death toll,” the Post wrote.

IF China is not the world’s most dangerous enemy, who is?

Major Disparity Discovered Between Moderna and Pfizer Vaccines

This could make an enormous difference when it comes to the subject of COVID boosters.

Published

These days, when you get your polio or tetanus vaccines, you don’t really go shopping around, right?  These two inoculations have been perfected to death, over decades and decades, and really just come with one choice:  Be vaccinated or don’t.

But, in the case of COVID-19 and the swiftly-developed vaccines against it, there are several competing options to choose from, which has created and fomented a hotly-debated choice for many Americans.

Now, new evidence seems to suggest that there is truly a difference in efficacy between the two most popular jabs.

Data collected from 18 states between March and August suggest the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine reduces the risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19 by 91% in the first four months after receiving the second dose. Beyond 120 days, however, that vaccine efficacy drops to 77%.

Meanwhile, Moderna’s vaccine was 93% effective at reducing the short-term risk of COVID-19 hospitalization and remained 92% effective after 120 days.

Overall, 54% of fully vaccinated Americans have been immunized with the Pfizer shot.

The news could create a major shift in the way country considers the possibly of vaccine booster shots, which has been a confusing and fraught subject over the course of the last several weeks.

One clinical study suggested that the Pfizer boosters could return the efficacy to the 95% range, but the addition of another shot is likely to move the needle on vaccine hesitancy as well, which is a balance that health experts are wary of teetering.
