The JFK Assassination made simple —
using video evidence and doctors' testimony

This page below is concerning the neck wound
right before frame 225 (dubbed "magic bullet" or
"single bullet theory").

Click here for simple one page lesson, concerning only
the fatal bullet wound from Zapruder film frame 313;

Below is the summary of evidence for JFK neck wound before frame 225.

THE SMOKING GUN: When was Texas Governor Connally hit?

"The next bullet struck Connally and sped downward from the collarbone
through the right side of his chest. It smashed three ribs,
punctured his lung, shattered his right wrist, and
lodged in his left leg just above the knee." - UPI (November 23, 1963)

A: Was Connally hit by the
first bullet (before frame 225)
then turns to talk to Jackie

Frames 222-252

or B: was Connally hit after
frame 313 when it knocked him over

Frames 290-335

Oswald Theorists claim A, because if the answer is B, Oswald is innocent.
Yet, obviously, Texas Governor Connally was not hit till after frame 313
proving there were multiple gunmen shooting simultaneously around frame 313.

The crux of the issue here, concerning the "magic bullet"
is that the alleged gun used by Oswald
can physically not produce enough shots to
hit JFK and Governor John Connally in the time period
between the first JFK wound (throat) before frame 225,
(the Warren Report says wound was between 210-225)
and the last JFK wound in the temple at frame 313.
James Tague was hit by a fraction of a bullet that missed JFK.
This leaves only 2 bullets left to account for all wounds of JFK and
Governor John Connally. Oswald theorists claim that 1 bullet was the
fatal head wound at 313, and the other bullet accounts for
all other wounds. Please see why this is impossible.

Oswald Theory

Theory: 5 Seconds before JFK's fatal head shot,
Oswald fired a single bullet
from the Book Depository that
injured JFK in the neck and Governor
John Connally in the back, wrist and leg.

THEORY: single "magic" bullet
from book depository
The New York Times (doctors claim front entry)
Dallas, Nov. 22, 1963
"Dr. Malcolm Perry, an attending surgeon, and Dr. Kemp Clark, chief of neurosurgery at Parkland Hospital, gave more details. Mr. Kennedy was hit by a bullet in the throat, just below the Adam's apple, they said. This wound had the appearance of a bullet's entry." Click here for article

Oswald theorists have spent all their lives making this
single bullet from before Zapruder frame 225 match the path of
JFK's neck wound and the back, wrist and leg wounds of
Governor John Connally of Texas.
Yet Governor Connally does not react from his various wounds
until after frame 324, over 5 seconds later (18 fps).

Governor Connally's reations on video are the "Smoking Gun"
of the JFK Assassination that proves conspiracy and coverup.
Lining up the bullet diagrams are a distraction,
please ignore attempts by theorists to line up the shot.
It does not matter if the shot lines up or not.
They are ignoring one crucial dimension: The time dimension.
As you can see, Governor Connally was not hit yet till much later,
5 seconds after JFK was hit in the neck.

Governor Connally can be seen here grabbing
his hat, turning his hat upside-down
(with his allegedly shattered wrist), then
twisting his body around (allegedly with 3 shattered
ribs and a smashed collarbone) after frame 225.
He begins to talk (despite his punctured lung)?
Jackie is turning to Governor Connally as he talks.
Clearly the Governor was not yet hit with
a high powered rifle bullet.

Just this simple observation destroys the case against Oswald,
because there would not be enough bullets from Oswald
to hit JFK at frame 225 and 313, then also hit Governor
Connally separately at frame 324,
in addition to hitting Mr. Tague.

This one magic bullet MUST account for Kennedy's neck wound and
Governor John Connally's back, wrist and leg wounds —
or Oswald cannot be guilty.
Oswald Theorists will say anything absurd to make this one first bullet
responsible for Governor John Connally's back, wrist and leg wound.

Governor Connally can be seen here on the History Channel (Youtube)
describing that he was bent over when he was shot in the back:

"I heard what I thought was a rifle shot [before frame 225] and
immediately reacted by turning over my right shoulder...
I was in the process of turning over to my left shoulder
when I felt a blow in the middle of my back [frame 324]...
the blow was in such force that it bent me over."

This "blow" was five seconds after JFK's neck wound.

Here we can see Connally clearly hit
after JFK's fatal head wound,
5 seconds after frame 225.

Here is more Zapruder footage and interviews that prove
that Governor Connally was not hit with the same bullet: (Youtube)

Do not be brainwashed by Oswald Theorists
dismissing this clear observable evidence,
with clever absurdities, like:

"A southern man can withstand a high power rifle shot
in the back for 5 seconds without reacting"

It is absurd to claim this is the same bullet —
when clearly Governor Connally was hit 5 seconds later.
This is a case where theory drives facts —
when facts should drive theory.

When researching the JFK assassination,
FIRST CHECK To Make sure the researcher
is not ignoring the fact that Governor Connally
was not yet hit at the point of JFK's neck wound.

"Respected" research, such as John McAdams (,
the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza (,
the Discovery Channel's "Tech Puts JFK Conspiracy Theories to Rest",
or "JFK: Inside the Target Car",
and Wikipedia (,
Have based their whole theory on arbitrarily ignoring that Governor Connally was not yet hit.
