The Truths and Lies – John F. Kennedy

John F. Kennedy was the 35th president of the United States, serving from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. He is just one of four presidents to have received a Pulitzer Prize.

John F. Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917, in Brookline, Massachusetts, to Rose Fitzgerald and Joseph P. Kennedy Sr., a businessman and investor who served as an ambassador to England during World War II.

KENNEDY’s father was a wealthy Irish-American businessman who made his fortune as an entrepreneur and stock market speculator; his mother was an American socialite from Boston’s prominent Irish Catholic community. The family lived in a mansion in Brookline, Massachusetts and attended the exclusive private St. Paul’s School before John Jr.’s father was appointed ambassador by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Following his graduation from Harvard College and Harvard Law School, Kennedy was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 1942 and the U.S. House of Representatives in 1947 as a Democrat representing his father’s old congressional district in Boston’s South End. He ran for the U.S. Senate in 1948 (losing to Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.) and, after his father’s death in 1949, won a special election to fill the vacancy.

Whatever the truth of Kennedy’s assassination, what is fully documented is that at the same time, the latest of his plots to assassinate Cuban revolutionary leader, Fidel Castro, was in operation. This was just one of a string of illegal and reckless initiatives pursued by Kennedy during his time in the White House comparable to any of the nefarious schemes of later Presidents. The heroic image manufactured by his hagiographers after 1963 has also been stripped away by numerous revelations about vote-rigging and womanizing that have exposed JFK as little more than just another venal capitalist politician. The fact that he was younger and had better speech-writers than his successors should not obscure the conservative and pro-imperialist agenda he unwaveringly pursued before and during his Presidency.

Eddy J Neyt, author of the book “Life Is Unfair: The Truths and Lies about John F. Kennedy” was passionate about knowing everything about the life of JFK.

He stated that;

“My interest in John F. Kennedy began when he was assassinated, November 22, 1963. I started gathering information about him the next day.

Today, I can say that I have probably the biggest private library on JFK, except for the books on the assassination, which, to me, is a business of his own.”

Eddy’s friend Mr. Dan Fenn Jr., former Staff Assistant to President Kennedy, motivated him to start writing a book on the life of John F Kennedy from his own perspective. In 2015, he finally started concentrating on writing a book on John F Kennedy and with all his passion, he finally wrote a masterpiece, working almost 5,900 hours. The book is available on Amazon.
