The government is the reason conspiracy theories exist. Keeping files under wraps for over 50 years? Why? What are they hiding? Are they making sure that everyone involved is dead before releasing the info?
On Saturday President Donald Trump announced that he intends to allow the blocked secret files on the 1963 assassination of John F Kennedy to be opened to the public for the first time. This move could shed new light on a tragedy that has stirred conspiracy theories for decades.
Trump tweeted: “Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long-blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.”

Assassination experts say the protected information may reveal new details about what the CIA knew of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s trip to the Soviet and Cuban embassies in Mexico City weeks before he shot Kennedy in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.
Judge Tunheim said: “The files that were withheld in full were those the Assassination Records Review Board deemed “not believed relevant. ”
He added: “Its members sought to ensure they weren’t hiding any information directly related to Kennedy’s assassination, but there may be nuggets of information in the files that they didn’t realize was important two decades ago.”
“There could be some jewels in there because in our level of knowledge in the 1990s is maybe different from today,” Tunheim said.
The National Archives is required to release all of its JFK documents by Thursday, nearly 54 years after Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas and 25 years to the day after President George H.W. Bush signed the JFK Assassination Records Act. Under the act, Trump can withhold part or all of the documents if he decides some “identifiable harm” weighs against disclosure.
In an email to The Associated Press, Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics and author of a book about Kennedy said: “The American public deserves to know the facts, or at least they deserve to know what the government has kept hidden from them for all these years.”
These files should have been made available to historians decades ago. It’s about damn time. Good for Trump for pulling down the curtain.
But, in my opinion, there’s another reason Trump wants these released. These same people that took out JFK are the same people wanting or threatening to do the same to him. He needs the public to wake up. His base is pretty aware. But the left needs to understand they’re just pawns of the deep state Trump is trying to defeat. Trump is a genius. When you see that you see his hidden messages.
