Dear Friends: It will be my pleasure to be a guest on Canto Talk today as we look at the post-election news and events that unfolded this day in history in 1963. As an extra bonus, we will be joined by Captain Capitalism himself…Aaron Clary (who will be discussing his new book).
Please join us at 7 pm PST/9 pm CT/10 pm EST or with an archived podcast by clicking here
Silvio and I are big fans of history, so we will spend some time recalling the events surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy:
Crowds of excited people lined the streets and waved to the Kennedys. The car turned off Main Street at Dealey Plaza around 12:30 p.m. As it was passing the Texas School Book Depository, gunfire suddenly reverberated in the plaza.
Bullets struck the president’s neck and head and he slumped over toward Mrs. Kennedy. The governor was also hit in the chest.
The car sped off to Parkland Memorial Hospital just a few minutes away. But little could be done for the President. A Catholic priest was summoned to administer the last rites, and at 1:00 p.m. John F. Kennedy was pronounced dead. Though seriously wounded, Governor Connally would recover.
The president’s body was brought to Love Field and placed on Air Force One. Before the plane took off, a grim-faced Lyndon B. Johnson stood in the tight, crowded compartment and took the oath of office, administered by US District Court Judge Sarah Hughes. The brief ceremony took place at 2:38 p.m.
Less than an hour earlier, police had arrested Lee Harvey Oswald, a recently hired employee at the Texas School Book Depository.
Additionally, we will be talking about the history our President-Elect Donald Trump is making. Canto Talk listeners will recall my predictions that Trump had a great chance of winning, because the media was gas-lighting its American audience.
When my super-talented colleague Mary Chastain wrote about the new tone of state Republican party ads, she posted that Hillary Clinton was the most probable winner.
She would be right if the reports we were getting weren’t being offered through a haze of “Gaslight,” a point that conservative talk show host Tammy Bruce has been making often in recent days is that the elite media is manipulating the reports to distort reality to create a very specific outcome (e.g., 3 media organizations have given their employees orders to destroy Trump).
…SUNY Professor Helmut Norpoth, who has accurately predicted election outcomes for the last 5 election based on behavior models, says that Trump has a 87-99% chance of winning. He asserts the polls are bunk.
Based on the available data, I am inclined to agree. The polls are nothing more that the fuel for the gaslight fires.
Additionally, we will discussing Trump’s transition process and appointees! We invite you to join us for another historic show.
