11/21-11/24/19 JFK assassination conference photos and videos


It was great seeing renowned author Jim DiEugenio (I am mentioned in his latest book). Jim said something like “Vince, you wanted my photo before Oliver’s; thanks!” 🙂

I shook Oliver Stone’s hand and patted him on the back, telling him I was a big fan of his. Jim DiEugenio introduced us.

Oliver Stone:

Oliver Stone:

Jim Gochenour, the gentleman who witnessed first-hand Secret Service agent Elmer Moore making disparaging remarks about JFK and admitted he badgered Dr. Perry into changing his testimony. He testified before both the Church Committee and the HSCA. I previously spoke to him on the phone before meeting him for the first time here! Here we are with author R. Andrew Kiel, as well (I am in his book).

Eyewitness Mary Ann Moorman (a Facebook friend) at the Dealey Plaza remembrance ceremony with JVB.

Dr. Cyril Wecht speaking at the ceremony. He spoke at both conferences. He may be 88 but he was super sharp in his speeches; amazing.


Author Gary Shaw (we also met the next day. We spoke on the phone before; he is a fan, as I am of him):

Researcher Pat Speer–great guy!:

Eyewitness Buell Wesley Frazier, who befriended Oswald at the TSBD and who gave LHO a ride to work on 11/22/63:

Dr. David Mantik. I am mentioned in his book and his daughter Meredith filmed me in 2018 and 2019 for an upcoming documentary:

Trine Day publisher Kris Millegan displaying my four books, as well as other author’s books:

Robert Groden and his new bride. Great people!

The award I won after my well-received presentation; quite an honor:

Just a mere sample of 11/22-11/23/19 Dealey Plaza photos I took (out of hundreds):

Dr. Wecht did the same presentation at the CAPA conference. As i recall he said Jack Ruby could not have been killed via a cancer cell injection.

As far as the Judyth conference…I suspect few would have a problem with the conference if Judyth was just one of a number of presenters. But, to my understanding, this isn’t true. It’s HER conference, with eveyone else treated as her supporting cast. That’s the way it was presented to the community the first few years, anyhow. If things have changed, Vince, let us know.

Pat, there were approximately 150 people at the Trine Day/”Judyth” conference, while I heard from a couple people that there was about that many at CAPA. I didn’t take a poll but, from what people told me directly, they thought of this conference mostly as “Trine Day’s conference” with a smattering of merely “a JFK assassination conference” and “Judyth’s conference” (a couple said “Judyth and Kris’ conference.”). Her name and face were NOT on the banner or conference program and, compared to 2016, she barely spoke at all between speakers. Kris was far more outspoken, conspicuous and out front than her; not even close. No photos of Judyth hung on the walls or anything- very low key.

Again, perhaps that is why most people in discussions thought of this as a Trine Day conference. The following Trine Day authors spoke at the conference (apart from Kris and Judyth): Mal Hyman, Hubert Clark (also one of JFK’s pallbearers), Vince Palamara (me), Edward Haslam, Christopher Fulton, John Delane Williams, Dick Russell, and Barbara Honegger. In addition, Robert Groden, Dr. Cyril Wecht, Gary Shaw, Ed Tatro, Dr. James Campbell, Roger Craig Junior, Marshal Evans, Grover Proctor, and several others.

Here is the conference banner:

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.
