Caitlyn Jordan | The Observer Kennedy assassination enthusiast Jack Gordon discusses his theories on the shooting.He also said there were discrepancies with doctor reports, and that the consensus of doctors’ reports made at the hospital in Dallas were covered up. There were also people seen in the background of video footage from the procession who may have acted as signals for when the president was believed to be shot, Gordon said.“I think the president was hit in the throat first, and then shortly after the throat was then hit in the back causing his arms to go up. I’m not convinced that the back shot exited. … [Governor John] Connelly in my mind is hit twice, separately.”As for who shot the president, Gordon said, “For me, for 40 years, it’s been a triangle. Three corners to the triangle: Anti-Castro Cubans, Organized Crime, CIA. And inside the triangle, in bold print, Cuba. They all have motive to kill President Kennedy, and Cuba is the common denominator.”The event also hoped to mitigate the medical expenses of junior Jessica Richardson, who suffers from Bronchorrhea asthma, a rare respiratory disease. “I have known Jessica and her family for over ten years,” family friend Daniel Gaito said when he introduced Richardson to the crowd. “Considering how often Jessica has been in the hospital and how many times she has been in a doctor’s office, one would think she would pursue a course of study far from the medical community. “However, she is about to complete her junior year in the nursing program. Countless times, she has been a patient. For her career, she desires to administer to others. Even when she is receiving treatment, she is studying so that she may treat others.”According to Gaito, the money raised will go toward Richardson’s treatment and give her the opportunity to travel to and from National Jewish Hospital in Denver, Colorado, which specializes in rare asthma cases. “She does not want anyone to feel sorry for her,” Gaito said. “She does not complain about her condition. She feels blessed and acknowledges that there are many worse off. She does not seek pity. Instead, she desires your assistance. “I am asking you to make an investment in Jessica. Normally, investments are quantitative in nature. But sometimes, investments are qualitative. … You invest in people. Jessica is my most worthwhile investment. Keeping her healthy and on her nursing trajectory is critical for this community.”Tags: Jack Gordon, Jessica Richardson, JFK, JFK lecture, Kennedy assassination Kennedy assassination expert Jack Gordon discussed the unexamined side of the shooting at a Saint Mary’s benefit lecture entitled “The Kennedy Assassination — Separating Truth from Myth,” on Thursday.Gordon’s presentation focused on the circumstances and investigations surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He said he believes there is more to the shooting than is normally taught. Gordon said he thinks there was more than one person who shot Kennedy because there is “overwhelming evidence that gunshots came from two different directions.” He cited video clips and photographs taken during the procession in Dallas to show that there were multiple shots fired at the president. Gordon said he believes the president was hit three or four times, and that it is possible there were six or seven shots total fired at the car.

Arsenal stunned. PHOTO via @premierleagueSheffield, United Kingdom | AFP | Unai Emery claimed Arsenal were unlucky to suffer a shock 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United as Lys Mousset condemned the Gunners to their latest away-day flop on Monday.Emery’s side are without an away Premier League win since the opening weekend of the season after failing to rise to the challenge posed by fired up United at Bramall Lane.French forward Mousset, making his first Premier League start for United, punished poor Arsenal defending in the first half to score his second goal since signing from Bournemouth.That was enough to send Arsenal crashing to just their second defeat of the season, ending an eight-game unbeaten run in all competitions.The north Londoners sit fifth in the league after a powder-puff performance that showed Emery’s rebuilding job is still a work in progress.But Emery insisted Arsenal deserved at least a draw and criticised the failure to give a penalty for a foul on Sokratis.“We didn’t deserve to lose. We can speak about two key moments, one is the goal and the other is a clear penalty with Sokratis. With VAR, the foul should have been reviewed, but we have to accept it,” Emery said after Arsenal’s winless run in the city of Sheffield extended to 26 years.“We had more chances than them. If we scored one goal then we could have controlled better.”Asked if Arsenal have a mental block in away games, Emery said: “We prepare for the matches the same home and away and think to win.“We deserved more but they are a very strong defensive team.”Under Emery, Arsenal have kept just two clean sheets in 24 away league matches and once again they wilted too easily in a hostile environment.“We conceded a lot of corners in the first half and they scored the goal. It can happen. Above all, we have to improve by not allowing balls like that,” Emery said.“We are playing some young players who are taking experience but the most important thing is to win.”This was a signature win for the Blades after last season’s promotion and they sit proudly in ninth place, just three points behind Arsenal. With the Bramall Lane crowd in full voice, a bruising clash got off to a contentious start when Sokratis appealed in vain for a penalty after having his shirt tugged by John Egan.Emery’s men should have taken the lead when Sead Kolasinac curled a perfect low cross towards Nicolas Pepe in the six-yard box, but the unmarked Ivory Coast winger completely miscued his shot.– Pepe struggles –It was the latest in a growing list of disappointing displays from Pepe, who has struggled to make an impact since his club record move from Lille in the close-season.United made the most of that escape as Arsenal’s long-running set-piece issues resurfaced in the 30th minute.Oliver Norwood’s corner reached Jack O’Connell at the far post and he rose above Matteo Guendouzi to head down to Mousset, who poked home from virtually on the line after Granit Xhaka failed to react to the danger.Damningly, Arsenal have conceded 22 league goals from set plays since the start of last season, with only Watford (25) and Everton (24) allowing more.Xhaka almost conjured an equaliser with a dipping long-range effort that Dean Henderson pushed away at full stretch.Mesut Ozil was once again left out of the Arsenal squad and, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang anonymous, Emery sent on Dani Ceballos, but he shot weakly at Henderson from Bukayo Saka’s cross.Alexandre Lacazette came on with 22 minutes left for his first appearance since suffering the ankle problem that had ruled the Arsenal striker out since the start of September.For all their territorial dominance in the closing stages, Arsenal lacked composure in the final third.Pepe curled just wide and Kolasinac headed over as the visitors’ frailties were laid bare.Share on: WhatsApp
Colin Kaepernick is sticking to his word when he promised to give back to his community. The former NFL quarterback was spotted in Oakland, California’s “Tent City” this weekend feeding the homeless and supplying them with much needed help on his 32nd birthday.He partnered up with his foundation, Know Your Rights Camp, and provided backpacks filled with snacks, socks, shampoo, and more. Additionally, he also provided a food truck that fed all consumers on his dime. Kaepernick has been using his name and his foundation to provide for his community since at least 2016 when he was forced out of the NFL due to his National Anthem protest.While he is no longer playing in the NFL, Kaepernick seemed to be in great spirits as he handed out backpacks, food, and posed photos with fans.
A rare celestial event involving the Sun and the planet Mercury will take place in the skies over the United States on Monday.According to NASA, Mercury will pass directly between the Sun and Earth, causing Mercury’s shadow to obscure part of the Sun.The effect will seem like that of a solar eclipse, when the moon passes between the Sun and Earth. However, solar eclipse glasses will not work on Monday, since only a small portion of the Sun will be blocked.Still, more than 60 astronomical groups across the country plan to host viewing parties for the public. A telescope with a solar filter will allow people to witness what is called the “transit.”It is projected to begin around 7:35 a.m. Eastern time on Monday and will last over five hours. The western half of the country will experience the transit for a few hours after sunrise.Mercury’s next transit will not be visible until the year 2032.A list of viewing parties is available by searching here.
Authorities in Virginia are currently searching for two suspects who robbed a Denny’s and killed a DoorDash employee who entered the restaurant during the robbery.Officials say two masked men in their late teens or early 20’s entered the restaurant brandishing a gun and a baton around 2:20 am on December 26th.The suspects then demanded property from both employees and diners before shooting one of the customers in the leg and in the torso.As the suspects made their escape, a DoorDash employee by the name of Yusuf Ozgur attempted to enter the restaurant to pick up an order. He was then hit in the head by the suspect holding a baton before he was fatally shot by the suspect armed with a gun.When authorities arrived, they applied a tourniquet to the victim who was shot in the leg and the torso, however, Ozgur was pronounced dead at the scene.Surveillance video showing the men entering the restaurant wearing dark clothes, masks, and gloves has since been released to the public. The FBI and area police are offering a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the two suspects.
Prince Harry made his first public appearance since he and Meghan Markle announced their plans to step back from senior royal duties.The Queen has given her blessing for the couple to live in Canada part-time during the transition.Canada’s biggest newspaper, The Globe and Mail, out with a scathing editorial, reading in part, “Canada is not a halfway house for anyone looking to get out of Britain while remaining a royal.” The article goes on to say: “If they were ordinary private citizens, plain old Harry and Meghan from Sussex, they would be welcome. But this country’s unique monarchy, and its delicate yet essential place in our constitutional system, means that a royal resident – the Prince is sixth in the line of succession – is not something that Canada can allow. It breaks an unspoken constitutional taboo.”The Royal Family issued a statement on Monday that said there would be a period of transition as the Prince steps back. His wife Meghan Markle is already in Canada with their son, Archie. The Prince also issued two video statements today on mental health and the Invictus Games.The editorial arguing it isn’t appropriate for the country to house senior royals as a member of the Commonwealth, the family of nations where the Queen is head of state. But that might be exactly the reason why it makes sense: in 2018 she made Harry Youth Ambassador for the Commonwealth.By the way Meghan and Harry picked a great place to put down roots because a new global survey says Canada is the world’s best country in which to live behind Switzerland. Canada has moved up to number two in this year’s survey, and Japan has slipped down to number three.
