The book JFK: FROM PARKLAND TO BETHESDA in kindle, nook, and paperback


About vincepalamara

Vincent Palamara was born in Pittsburgh and graduated from Duquesne University with a degree in Sociology. Although not even born when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Vince brings fresh eyes to an old case. In fact, Vince would go on to study the largely overlooked actions - and inactions - of the United States Secret Service in unprecedented detail, as well as achieving a world's record in the process, having interviewed and corresponded with over 80 former agents (the House Select Committee on Assassinations had the old record of 46 with a 6 million dollar budget and subpoena power from Congress), not to mention many surviving family members, White House aides, and even quite a few Parkland and Bethesda medical witnesses for a corresponding project. The result was Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect President Kennedy. Vince is also the author of the books JFK: From Parkland To Bethesda, The Not-So-Secret Service, Who's Who in the Secret Service, and Honest Answers about the Murder of President John F. Kennedy: A New Look at the JFK Assassination. All told, Vince has been favorably mentioned in over 140 JFK and Secret Service related books to date (including two whole chapters in Murder in Dealey Plaza, The Secret Service: The Hidden History Of An Enigmatic Agency by Philip Melanson, and the Final Report of the Assassination Records Review Board, among many others), often at length, in the bibliographies, and in the Secret Service - and even medical evidence - areas of these works. Vince has appeared on the History Channel's THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY (VHS and DVD), C-SPAN, Newsmax TV, A COUP IN CAMELOT (DVD/BLU RAY), KING KILL '63, THE MAN BEHIND THE SUIT (DVD), National Geographic's JFK: THE FINAL HOURS (including on DVD), PCN, BPTV, local cable access television, YouTube, radio, newspapers, print journals, at national conferences, and all over the internet. Also, Vince's original research materials, or copies of said materials, are stored in the National Archives (by request under Deed Of Gift by the ARRB), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Harvard University, the Assassination Archives and Research Center, and the Dallas Public Library. Vince Palamara has become known (as he was dubbed by the History Channel in 2003) "the Secret Service expert." As former JFK Secret Service agent Joe Paolella proclaimed: "You seem to know a lot about the Secret Service, maybe even more than I do!" Agent Dan Emmett calls Vince a Secret Service expert in his new book.

    Vince, what do you think of this? Clint Hill has a secret – the limousine stopped, he knows this and yet he has never mentioned it once. And it torments him (among other things as well). Check out the Orville Nix film of the JFK assassination, where we can see Clint Hill physically “pushing the vehicle” in a mad rush to get the limousine moving again about 1.5 seconds after the fatal head shot. He’s “pushing the vehicle” because the limousine had virtually come to a halt in the middle of a firing zone and they needed to get the vehicle moving as quickly as possible.

    For the last 50 years the conventional wisdom has been that SS Agent Hill was running flat out to reach the back of the car in a desperate attempt to get between President Kennedy and the any further gunfire (or to reach Jacquie). Watch closely, the fatal head shot hits JFK a fraction of about half a second before Agent Hill arrived, but once he reached the back of the limousine, he was not frantically trying to keep up with the car as it sped away. The car virtually stationary and he was trying to “push start” the presidential limousine. He even puts his foot back onto the road a second and third time to give the vehicle a final “push off” from the ground, much like a kid on a skateboard.

    Clint Hill’s secret: the limousine stopped and he was desperately “pushing from the back” to provide momentum to the vehicle until the driver (Greer) got back on the gas. And if the limousine stopped then this is a clear-cut case of conspiracy… Dallas was a turkey shoot, JFK was never going to be let out of Daley Plaza alive. I haven’t shared this with anyone else yet, but given your expertise in the performance of the Secret Service on the fateful day, I’d be keen to hear your thoughts….

    An amazing book of detail. I’ve been going through it over and over. The main issue for me is the BACK of his head was clearly blown out…..meaning a FRONTAL shot! Good work Vince
