I am John Gooch, and I have been investigating the JFK assassination for the past several years and working on my essay. My main focus has been on Clay Shaw, the Mafia,
Permindex, and the oil - defense industry. My essay "The New Orleans Connection" discusses the connections between certain oil and aerospace executives and people connected to the case. I also cover the relationship between New Orleans and Dallas suspects, where I explore some of the activities of Gen. Edwin Walker in the Big Easy. The paper details the CIA, Mafia, and French connections to the JFK assassination. In addition, there is discussion of some of the activities of associates of Clay Shaw (International Trade Mart manager and director). These include David Ferrie, Lee Oswald, and Guy Banister.

There is a Texas oil connection to the assassination. In 1961, Gen. Edwin Walker was commander of the 24th Division of the U.S. Army in West Germany, when he was relieved of his command because he attempted to indoctrinate his men with his political philosophy. Soon after, he resigned from the Army. In early 1963, Gen. Edwin Walker was visited by Dallas mobster Jack Ruby. Los Angeles Mafia courier Jim Braden had visited H. L. Hunt's downtown Dallas office the day before the assassination, shortly after Jack Ruby went there. H. L. Hunt was the richest oilman in Texas. Both Hunt and Gen. Walker lived and worked in Dallas. The oil and defense industry wanted to remove President Kennedy and escalate the Vietnam War, so they could make billions in profits off of the conflict. After Lyndon Johnson became President, he escalated the Vietnam War. After Richard Nixon became President in 1969, he expanded the war. Both Presidents served the interests of the corporations & Mafia. They were adversaries of JFK and moved up in stature after his assassination.
Above, the limo approaches the Grassy Knoll, where the gunman waits behind the picket fence. He can't get a clear shot until the limo passes the Grassy Knoll pergola.
After the limo passes the pergola, the gunman fires the fatal head shot. He would have been much closer to the
President than Oswald and had an easier shot. It would also be easier for him to escape because he didn't have to
work his way through a crowded building. Most bystanders
thought the head shot came from the Grassy Knoll and ran in that direction after the gunfire ended, along with a motorcycle officer who was riding behind the limo. On the Zapruder film, you can see the head shot push JFK's head back and away from the Grassy Knoll, indicating a shot coming from behind the picket fence atop the Grassy Knoll and from the right front of the limousine. This proves there was more than one gunman and thus a hidden conspiracy.
On Nov. 24, 1963, Jack Ruby fatally shot Lee Harvey Oswald once in the abdomen, in the basement of Dallas police headquarters, where he was being transferred to the County Jail. The incident occurred on live television.
The official version is that Ruby had walked down a car ramp to get to the basement, even though the narrow entrance to the car ramp was guarded by a police officer. Jack Ruby couldn't have snuck into the narrow entrance of the car ramp without being seen. Just two days after the JFK assassination, Jack Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald to make sure he could never tell what he knew about the New Orleans, Mafia, CIA, and Dallas connections to the case.
The truth needs to be told about what really happened to JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald. If you feel the same way, write to or email your congressman and tell him we need to reopen the JFK assassination case and set things right.
Shall we move forward to a better world or descend into
madness and death. God is good and true.
