Naked on a boat


This is a beautiful story about John F. Kennedy and some ladies on a boat in the Mediterranean Sea, in the summer of 1956. The above photo could have changed history, according to TMZ, a website on entertainment news, who published it in September 2009.


Kennedy enjoying a vacation
My second book starts with this narrative and I always begin my lectures with it: it says something about the image of the President. The photo shows two naked women jumping off the boat and two more naked women sunning on the top deck. Just below the top deck, a man appearing to be John F. Kennedy is lying on a deck, sunning himself. Multiple experts examined the photo and concluded it was authentic. There are numerous articles and books which mention a 2-week, Mediterranean boating trip that JFK, then a Senator,  took in August, 1956, with his brother Ted Kennedy and Senator George Smathers. They reportedly entertained a number of women on the yacht. Jackie Kennedy was pregnant at the time – daughter Arabella was stillborn on August 23.

From a drawer to global attention
For many years the photo was in the drawer of a man who owned a car dealership on the East coast. After his death, one of his sons inherited it. And in 2009, it was apparently time to share the image with the rest of the world. TMZ: ” Had the photo surfaced when John F. Kennedy ran for President in 1960, it could have torpedoed his run, and changed world history.” The press feasted: the photo was taken over by media around the world, without much research – a lot of free publicity for our friends at TMZ.

Pure deception
That same day, however, the whole story proved to be a hoax. Playboy Magazine used the picture in 1967, next to an article about exciting parties at sea: “Charter Yacht Party: How to Have a Ball on the Briny with an Able Bodied Complement of Ship’s Belles. As Andy sunned himself on deck, Elaine dove naked into the water while Roxanna provocatively shimmied up a ladder.” Not exactly a newsworthy picture, let alone a photo that could change world history could change.

FBI memo: Kennedy and several girls in the nude
But still… There is a memo from the FBI, written in 1960, which refers to a picture of a yacht, showing Kennedy, his friends and some “pictures in the nude”! Where did that picture go? JFK has never been known for its monogamic principles – the publication of that real photo would finally confirm a lot of the rumors. John F. Kennedy. He continues to fascinate the world, almost fifty years after his death…

    TMZ Falls For JFK Photo Hoax

    Photo that “could have changed history” was from Playboy 1967, 4 YEARS AFTER KENNEDY’S ASSASSINATION!

    Here is the original 1967 color photograph,undamaged,compared to the TMZ black and white hoax photograph full of cracks (to create ambiguity) that TMZ said was shot in 1956.


    “The trio reportedly entertained a number of women on the yacht. Jackie Kennedy
    was pregnant at the time and was rushed to the hospital while JFK was
    an the boat. Doctors performed an emergency C-section, but the infant
    was stillborn.” — TMZ

    Kennedy WAS on a boat in the Mediterranean at the time,but he wasn’t on a boat fornicating with naked women as the above hoaxed picture suggests,and the fact that the photograph was taken AFTER Kennedy was assassinated just adds to the offensiveness of this smear attack,yellow journalism at its worst.

    Why not just show Lincoln on the boat,there are plenty of people who hate Lincoln enough to believe it.

    People believe what they want to believe,and if they see a picture that is consistent with their preconceptions,then they will believe it because they will want to believe it,and that is what outfits like TMZ count on — “what a fool believes,he sees”.

    So many years later the smears continue,and that’s because the same kind of people who were behind the assassinations of both Lincoln and Kennedy not only hold a grudge,but wanted to completely destroy these two men personally as well as politically and physically.

    That is what Murder Inc. does to its enemies. Complete destruction,character assassination on top of murder.

    (replace the 1’s with the letter “i”,replace the number 5 with the letter “s”)

    Lincoln and Kennedy defied the true evil powers that be,and for this ultimate crime,they will forever by vilified in the controlled press.It isn’t enough that these great men and leaders are dead. The wicked monsters who rule over us,the world and the press,will continue to piss on the graves of their enemies,and presidents Lincoln and Kennedy were definitely considered enemies to the system when they were alive,and they are still perceived this way today.

    But it isn’t just a matter of malice or holding a grudge,the jackals who rule over us also want to deter future rebellion on the part of world leaders,so they make sure that to make their retributions ugly and ongoing and very public.

    They want everyone to witness what happens to leading dissenters,and how they are attacked over and over indefinitely.This is their idea of maximum deterrence to dissent.
