“Fascinating glimpse into the accumulating knowledge of this crime. And why Presidents Trump and Biden both backed away from full disclosure of the JFK Files. This book goes beyond all reasonable doubt to prove that Oswald, given a real trial, would have been acquitted.”
– Oliver Stone
The JFK Assassination Chokeholds brings forth the evidence supporting ten key points that prove by clear and convincing evidence that Oswald could not have acted alone. The book is out on November 14 in eBook form and print at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple Books and numerous other outlets in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Chokeholds is written by four authors, including Oliver Stone collaborator, James DiEugenio (JFK Revisited, Destiny Betrayed, Reclaiming Parkland), Paul Bleau (JFK Revisited, frequent podcast guest), and two attorneys: Matt Crumpton (Solving JFK Podcast) and Andrew Iler. Attorney Mark Adamczyk also collaborated. The authors also argue that there was not enough proof to find Oswald guilty beyond reasonable doubt.
Chokeholds stands out because of this unique combination of knowledge and legal expertise.
“The first time I heard the word chokeholds used in this case was by the legendary Malcolm Blunt when he was describing how the CIA managed the Oswald file, which clearly suggested that when Oswald went to Russia, he was no ordinary defector. Many arguments in proving a conspiracy can be seen as persuasive, but not necessarily conclusive. Chokeholds cannot be countered. In the view of the authors, the ten bodies of evidence put forward, each on their own, constitute a chokehold that inescapably proves a conspiracy,” states Paul Bleau, one of the authors.
The ten chokeholds presented thoroughly with legal standard benchmarks are certain to convince readers that: Those who conducted the many government-led investigations into the case overwhelmingly repudiate the Warren Commission conclusions and are largely in agreement with what is presented in Chokeholds; Oswald was no lone nut drifter, and in fact, he had many intelligence links; the “evidence” that Oswald was even a shooter is flimsy at best; Oswald was often impersonated; Jack Ruby followed orders and received assistance to terminate Oswald; similar case analysis proves there was a guiding hand; the medical evidence would have been thrown out of court; the single-bullet theory foisted upon the public by Warren Commission apologists is impossible; there was at least one shot that came from the front of the motorcade; and that there has been obstruction of justice for sixty years culminating in the breaches of the JFK Act by Presidents Biden and Trump.
Chokeholds has already garnered strong endorsements from Oliver Stone, Cyril Wecht and John Newman.
