If I remember correctly it’s been said that Lee Harvey Oswald was incapable of making that shot. He didn’t have the skills.
If memory serves me correctly expert marksman/sharpshooters using the same rifle could not get the number of shots off in the time allotted or as accurately. 


President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

That has been said, it's also been demonstrated it was entirely within his skill set.  He was a Marine at one time.

This is an expert firing the Carcano at fastest speed possible.  Now, we don't know how well he's aiming of course, but he managed 6 shots in 5.1 seconds.

Just because you’re a Marine, it doesn’t make a person a expert marksman. Very few people are military expert marksmen.

I didn't say he was expert.  I believe he qualified at sharpshooter.  He was trained as a Marine, so he was familiar with basic shooting principles.  They spend a while at the range in Basic and get pretty good instruction.

If I recall the Warren Commission Report cast doubt on his ability to get the shots off accurately within the time frame and then went on. Odd they seen it is being insignificant but spent three pages discussing a chicken bone stuck in some ones throat.

Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

OCD's MiniMe is having a hissy fit and fails to see I directly responded to this. The fact he does not whine about them is very telling. Likewise he does not whine about OCD who also posted on the same thing. That too is very telling.

So you believe Lee Harvey Oswald by himself killed JFK? And Jack Ruby Killed Oswald for the hell of it?

If I remember correctly it’s been said that Lee Harvey Oswald was incapable of making that shot. He didn’t have the skills.

Stipulate that the Trump campaign (et al.) has compelling evidence, is it sufficient for a court somewhere to DO something that would change the apparent outcome?

That seems to me to be THE question.

You can blame the judges if the answer it no, I get that, but it doesn't change the apparent outcome.

I just figured that an anti-thread hijacker like yourself wouldn't involve themselves in such heinous behavior.
