On November 22, 1963, in Dallas, TX, the then president of the United States, John F. Kennedy, was gunned down as the whole world watched.
A White House-appointed commission later concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald pulled the trigger…but many conspiracy theorists believe that his arrest was nothing more than a cover up.
So why was JFK assassinated and what are the JFK conspiracy theories that actually oppose the commission’s findings?
Let’s take a closer look…

JFK Conspiracy Evidence
The White House commission concluded that Oswald had acted alone…we now know that to be inaccurate, or, at worst, falsified.
The video evidence is there for everyone to see, and has been ever since that fateful day in 1963.
On top of that you’ve got the ballistic evidence…
Which doesn’t exactly paint the commission in a good (or capable) light.
The 1978-79 House select committee on assassinations decided there was a high probability that a second gunman fired at Kennedy and that he was “probably assassinated as a conspiracy”.
That kinda hammered the final nail into the coffin of the commission’s original theories.
Just for laughs…
More recently, the good old blonde bombshell himself, Donald Trump, came up with a rather wonderful theory (what is it with that guy?).
During his campaign to get into the White House, he insinuated that Senator Ted Cruz’s father was connected to the assassination!
Apparently the National Inquirer had published a few images of Rafael Cruz distributing leaflets with Oswald (these were taken a few months before the 1963 Dallas shooting).
Cruz responded to Trump’s claims by saying:
“I guess I should go ahead and admit yes my dad killed JFK, he is secretly Elvis, and Jimmy Hoffa is buried in his backyard.”
As far as comebacks go – that’s a pretty cool effort!
