Final Judgment: The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy by Michael Collins Piper (PDF download)
America First Books eBook Summary
Arguably this is the best analysis in existence of one of the most pivotal crimes of the Twentieth Century. It is also a vital expose of the hidden real power structure of America whose virulent poison has been steadily spreading corruption throughout our increasingly distressed country.
Final Judgment documents how Israel's leaders, the Mossad, the Meyer Lansky-run organized crime syndicate, and a pro-Zionist faction of the CIA colluded to assassinate President ,John F. Kennedy. The general pattern of the JFK covert operation, to include the skillful use of "limited hang-outs," "patsies," and "false flags," has very likely been repeated in various later forms such as in the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, the murder of Martin Luther King, the mysterious death of former CIA Director William Colby, the very suspicious Oklahoma City bombing, and the Mossad-linked "controlled demolition" of World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. More recently, we have seen how the "High Priests of War" have flexed raw Israeli-lobby power by pushing American interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq and by promoting saber-rattling at Iran and Syria.
JFK planned a military strike to prevent an Israeli-Red Chinese scientific partnership from building the first atomic bombs for China and Israel. He sought to thwart the CIA-Mossad-Meyer Lansky partnership that controlled the heroin trade stemming from the Golden Triangle by pulling U.S. troops out of Vietnam. JFK even transferred control of Cold War espionage operations from the CIA to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Through his support of Algerian independence and an "even-handedness" policy towards other Arab nations, JFK infuriated the French Secret Army Organization (OAS) and its Mossad supporters who had sent professional assassins against French President Charles DeGaulle. JFK's brother Bobby, as Attorney General, moved aggressively against the lower levels of Meyer Lansky-dominated organized crime in America. Lastly, the Kennedy family quietly talked about shutting down America's privately owned Federal Reserve banking cartel that has provided vital fiat money financing for Zionist projects.
For most Americans, Final Judgment is a high drama in another way. It is like Hamlet seeing the ghost. It addresses all the right "hard questions" about what has been done to America that are rarely addressed in so-called "mainstream" conservative literature.

Extracts from the Final Judgment special insert to American Free Press, pages B1-B4, Vol. IV, Issue 14, April 5, 2004:
WHEN FINAL JUDGMENT WAS FIRST RELEASED in 1994, even many critics of Israel were skeptical of Michael Collins Piper’s allegation that Israel’s intelligence agency, the Mossad, had been involved in the JFK conspiracy. Despite this, Final Judgment became an overnight “underground best- seller” and now — ten years later— continues to be “must” reading among patriots all across America. In spite of intense opposition, more than 30,000 copies are now in circulation throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Described by many readers as the definitive “last word” on the JFK conspiracy, Final Judgment has sparked headlines in newspapers here and abroad.And the Israeli lobby has worked overtime to try to stop this book from being distributed.
Final Judgment dissects the seemingly diverse theories you’ve heard over the years about the JFK assas-sination and demonstrates the one thing they have in common: the long-secret Israeli connection.
This book also shows how the secret nuclear alliance between Israel and Red China played a pivotal role in the conspiracy, setting the stage for the modern-day arms deals behind Israel and Communist China!
You’ll be talking about this book years after you’ve read it . . .
And there’s no doubt about it — this is one book that needs, and deserves, widespread distribution...
The Most Complete, Convincing
(and Controversial) JFK Theory Ever!
Here's the Other Side of
the Jigsaw Puzzle . . .
High-level ex-Pentagon official gives FINAL JUDGMENT big endorsement! Col. Donn de Grand Pré, author of “Barbarians,” says JFK book is “brilliant”
Here’s what Colonel Donn de Grand Pré has written in his own book, Barbarians Inside the Gates, citing Final Judgment, which Grand Pré describes as “brilliant” . . .
“Several high-level military officers believed that the killing of JFK was in fact a coup d’etat carried out by elements of the CIA working with the Israeli Mossad. Kennedy was attempting to halt the devel- opment of nuclear weapons by the Israelis, while simultaneously planning to disband the CIA and dis- engage our military troops from the Indo-China area. (Read Final Judgment by Michael Collins Piper for more details.)”
(In 1967 Grand Pré was named Director for Ground Weapons Systems in the Pentagon’s Office of International Logistics Negotiations, responsible for negotiating sales contracts with heads of foreign nations for military weapons systems. On Sept. 30, 1979, The Washington Post Magazine wrote: “If you had been a Middle Eastern ruler in the 1970s in search of American weapons systems, you would have called Donn de Grand Pré, Pentagon arms peddler.” Grand Pré is also the author of Confessions of an Arms Peddler, The Viper’s Venom and The Rattler’s Revenge.)
Former High-Ranking State Department Officer, Arms Control Specialist Says: “Final Judgment is a masterpiece. Michael Collins Piper has struck gold.”
What follows is a review of FINAL JUDGMENT posted on amazon.com on March 10, 2003 by Dr. Herbert L. Calhoun, a former top-level State Department official. His review says it all . . .
As one who has read over 200 books on the JFK assassination, and engaged in research both as an individual and as part of various teams, I can say without fear of contradiction that Piper's book is now the definitive work on the JFK assassination. Final Judgment is the most thorough, most honest, most penetrating, most factual, and most analytically complete and systematic of all that I have read so far.
The author builds an upwardly spiraling tapestry of well documented facts that connect the threads of the conspiracy as they ascend level by level from the ground up to the very tip of the pyramid. Along the way, he breaks the conspiracy into easily digestible parts. Otherwise its sheer complexity would be nearly impossible to follow and decipher. At each level, the threads of the puzzle are woven together in such a way that the fog from the labyrinth is slowly but inexorably lifted until eventually it is peeled back completely and the outlines of the conspiracy are laid bare. What is revealed is as convincing as it is scary.
Some day America will have to face some unpleasant truths about its democracy and about how it has been, and continues to be manipulated, if not completely commandeered by those whose primary loyalties lie elsewhere.
While the links at some of the levels may be tenuous, the author refuses to "fake or fudge the data" or to be "fatally selec- tive" in what is included or left out—as was so clearly the case in Gerald Posner's Case Closed, or indeed as was the case in the Warren Commission's own flawed report.
Piper is intrepid in following his analysis to every logical conclusion — wherever they lead and whatever the implications may be. In short, Piper keeps his eye on the donut ("Big Picture") and not on the hole (inessential details). He focuses on the "why and how" of the conspiracy and unmistakably the threads all lead back to Israel, Israeli super-patriots, the Meyer Lansky led "Jewish branch of the mob," and the Mossad and the international "agents of influence" under its control.
While serious researchers may quibble with inessential details in the study, such as tenuous links at some levels, or redundancies at others, those of us who have studied this issue since the days after the assassination always knew that the truth would have its own resonance — like the Garrison investigation did.
We knew that the truth would have its own context, its own smell, like Peter Dale Scott's Deep Politics and the Death of JFK did. Piper's book has them all and in the grand tradition of Carl Oglesby's The Yankee & Cowboy War, Michael Collins Piper has struck gold. He has hit the "mother lode," and in the process has pointed the finger at, if not tightened the proverbial noose around, the necks of the cabal of conspirators responsible for pulling the strings (and triggers) of the JFK assassination.
JFK assassination research has a new standard bearer. It will never be the same again. Because of this book, future research will begin to focus more on the "big picture," and turn away from constantly grinding, ad nauseam, at inconsistencies in the Warren Commission's Report. Compared to Posner's Case Closed, Final Judgment is a masterpiece.

The following high level insider endorsement of Final Judgment appears on page 12 of False Flags by Michael Collins Piper, published in October 2013
"I think that's pretty much
what happened . . . "
That's what legendary Washington insider — international arms dealer and public relations man I. Irving Davidson, a longtime registered lobbyist for Israel — told Michael Collins Piper in 1994 about the thesis of Final Judgment after he read the book by Piper, with whom Davidson had been acquainted for more than ten years, having been a reader of The Spotlight, the newspaper for which Piper was a correspondent.
Davidson's assessment was significant: For years iconic JFK assassination writer Peter Dale Scott repeatedly suggested Davidson was essentially the "man in the middle" of all of the key power groups that wanted JFK out of the White House. Naturally, Scott was astounded to learn in 2008 — when Piper called a radio program on which Scott was a guest — that Piper knew Davidson quite well and that Davidson had endorsed the thesis of Final Judgment.
Another JFK writer, John Davis, called Davidson "a schemer and promoter with a vast international network of powerful acquaintances. Comfortable with almost everybody, from sultans and sheiks to Central American tyrants and U.S. Mafia bosses, he was a man who somehow knew secrets nobody else in Washington knew."
In fact, an overview of Davidson's colorful career demonstrates why his appraisal of Final Judgment is so instructive. Aside from his long-standing intimate relationship with the Israeli war machine Davidson — who imported the first Israeli Uzi machine guns onto American soil — was also a valued confidant of longtime JFK foes such as Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa and New Orleans Mafia boss Carlos Marcello and was the Washington representative for Latin American strongmen as Nicaragua's Samoza, Cuba's Batista, Trujillo of the Dominican Republic and Haiti's infamous "Papa Doc."
For years, Davidson (a friend of Richard Nixon) lived on the same block in Washington as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and Sen. Lyndon Johnson, whom he also counted as friends. The Capitol Hill lobbyist for Hoover crony — Dallas power-broker Clint Murchison — Davidson was a business partner of LBJ's protégé and "bagman;' Bobby Baker and also frequently engaged on behalf of the CIA and the National Security Council. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Today, Piper says: "If anyone knew 'what happened' it was Irv. When — right there in his office in the Commerce Building — Irv said quietly, 'Your book, Final Judgment, I've read it; and then told me what he thought (nodding his head, staring me straight in the eye), I nodded back, recalling the old saying, 'Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies.' He volunteered nothing further and I asked no questions. But I did have a satisfaction in hearing him say what he did."

Some sample favorable comments:
March 1, 2016
Additionally, my previous high opinion of Bill O'Reilly was shattered due to his lack of investigative prominence when he put his name on his "Killing Kennedy" book release. That book is just another re-work of the Warren Commission debacle with lots of salacious pages of a President out of control with his sexuality thrown in. Obviously, O'Reilly either didn't care about delving into the conspiracy theory, and there are many variations, or he prefers to be part of the continuing cover up itself for reasons only known to him. The problem here is that many generations of citizens look up to Mr. O'Reilly as a truth seeker, but his book lacks any truth about who actually killed Kennedy. Shame on you, Mr. O'Reilly!
Our nation was changed for the worse on that fateful November day, not solely because of the death of Kennedy for he was just a man, but because it was an assault on the very foundations that make this country great. It changed the lives of millions of people and continues to this day. Even my own life was changed, as I did a tour of duty in Vietnam as did millions of others in the military. When Johnson took over, he reversed the course that Kennedy had started to get our troops out of Vietnam and instead got us deeper into that mess. Thus more than 58.000 Americans were killed by Johnson's reversal orders. But there is so much more to learn in this book.
As I read this book I couldn't help but see the same issues that parallel the theme of this book as also being true today. Once again our officials subvert the will of the people with scandals, cover ups, denials, lies, half truths, stonewalling, racial divide, and bribes. Perhaps if you read this book you will come to similar conclusions yourself. This book should be required reading in our schools and colleges. Read it! Learn from it! Spread the word about it!
Extensively researched & thoroughly documented. Information on the JFK assassination you won't find elsewhere. Many inexplicable events detailed by Warren Commission and other researchers will suddenly make sense. The book examines Israel's central role in the assassination, using its known assets in the CIA, organized crime and military.
JFK's administration was applying massive pressure on Israel to terminate its nuclear weapons program (see Israel and the Bomb by Avner Cohen Israel and the Bomb ); this pressure ended with JFK's assassination. Dr. Mordechai Vanunu, the famed Jewish-born nuclear physicist who spent 18 years in prison for exposing Israel's covert atomic weapons program, told the Jerusalem Post (July 25, 2004) that Israel was behind the JFK assassination. This books and other JFK researchers discuss the Permindex - Clay Shaw - David Ferrie connections to the assassination, yet this book alone reveals the Mossad as a key force behind Permindex. One of the chief shareholders in Permindex being Banque De Credit International established by Tibor Rosenbaum, the longtime Director of Finance & Supply of Israel's Mossad. The connections and revelations go on and on.
This book is not for the beginning JFK assassination researcher/student; it assumes you are already familiar with the many players and investigations. I've been studying the JFK assassination for almost 50 years now and with over 40 books on this subject I have to say that Final Judgement is the only book that has put all the puzzle pieces together in a coherent and reasonable manner.
Note: the edition available on Amazon (5th edition July 2000) is NOT the latest edition of Final Judgement. The 6th edition (2005) is almost 100 pages longer and contains significant new material (e.g. NUMEC-Stern connection and how it relates to Oswald and Bannister see Divert!: NUMEC, Zalman Shapiro and the diversion of US weapons grade uranium into the Israeli nuclear weapons program for background). The second printing of the 6th edition was released in 2017 as a 2 volume set. I believe this is only available from the publisher (American Free Press) directly. Nevertheless, this volume is well worth your time and very affordable.
Dec 2019 America First Books publisher's note: The title page of the ePub and PDF versions offered by America First Books represent exactly what the title pages say, namely "SIXTH EDITION (Soft cover Second Printing - 2005) BY THE AMERICAN FREE PRESS." I was under the impression that the main text of the American Free Press commemorative two volume edition released in 2017 set is virtually identical, with the exception of a foreword by Professor Ray Goodwin. Now that I am aware of this possible discrepancy, I will obtain a copy of the 2017 two volume set and go through it page by page it in an effort to resolve this issue . As some additional background, the special American Free Press insert for the Sixth Edition of Final Judgment provided in Issue 14, April 5, 2004, had the following:
The 2017 two volume commemorative softcover editions can be obtained from the following two sources:
AFP (American Free Press) Online Store: Volume I and Volume II (sold together as a set)
Amazon: Volume I and Volume II (sold separately)
American Free Press has made the following statement on Amazon regarding its 2017 two volume commemorative softcover edition:
In the years before Michael Collins Piper passed away on May 30, 2015, he told many of us here at AFP that he was working on some minor updates for his highly acclaimed book, Final Judgment.
He wanted to reintroduce the book, which was already in its sixth edition, because he knew it was nearly impossible to get it anymore. Sadly, that never came to fruition before his unfortunate death, and you can now only find used copies on the Internet, at very, very steep prices.
Good news: we will are offering print copies of Mike's incredible book once again-only this time we will be breaking it up into two manageable volumes, around 400 pages each.
For those who don't know, Final Judgment is considered to be one of the definitive books on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Through meticulous research, Mike pieced together multiple disparate theories on who was behind the murder, ultimately placing the blame for orchestrating this tragic event and the resultant cover-up on the Israeli government. Not surprisingly, the story is complicated. But, according to Mike, the reason Kennedy was in the crosshairs was largely due to his unwavering opposition to Israel getting the atomic bomb.
To this day, Mike's book still stands the test of time. Of course, it is well known in conspiracy circles.
Volume I contains the main text of the Final Judgment book plus Mike's amazing photo section, which he encouraged Production Manager Paul Angel to publish himself should we not be able to afford to do the whole book. (Mike told Paul that the photo pages practically told the whole story.)
Volume 2 comprises the 10 extremely detailed appendices referenced in the main body of the book. We also want to thank Mike's good friend Prof. Ray Goodwin of Texas, an indomitable JFK researcher himself, who agreed to write the foreword to this 2017 commemorative edition.
I am aware from listening to all of Mike Piper's podcasts as well as my personal correspondence with him that much of the update material that he intended for a revised 7th edtion of Final Judgment can be found in his articles archive at mikepiperreport.com (which I maintain) that unearth additional ties between the JFK assassination (and 9-11) and the Rothschilds / City of London (whose U.S.-UK-Israeli deep state tentacles reach through Mossad-CIA-MI6, central banks, high level organized crime, major Political Action Committees and NGO's [a favorite tool of agent George Soros], controlled media, etc --it all ties together). The Rothschilds / City of London and their agents have a long history of sinister international intrigues and attempts to alter history by assassinating heads of state, to include the murder of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 via proxies in order to saddle Libya with their own central bank and the attempted assassination of President Andrew Jackson in 1835 via an agent on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building in retaliation for his successful campaign to end central banking in the U.S. As noted in the Dope, Inc. series by the Executive Intelligence Review and other associates of the late Lyndon LaRouche (see for example Dope, Inc.: Britain's Opium War Against The U.S., 1978, Dope Inc: Boston Bankers and Soviet Commissars by Executive Intelligence Review, 1987, and Dope, Inc.: The Book That Drove Henry Kissinger Crazy 3rd Edition. 1992), they control the global hard drug trade that has over a trillion dollars a year in revenues and which could never function without the active support of the British offshore banking system. They also run major pedophile rings to control politicians (a la operative Jeffrey Epstein) and control major vice industries, to include liquor (a la the late Edgar Bronfman) and gambling (a la Sheldon Adelson who "Towers Behind Trump"). They supported the genocide of Afrikaners during the Boer War, supported Japan against Russia in the Russo-Japanese War, funded the Bolshevik Revolution, and played a major role in setting up World War I and World War II (See, for example "BENJAMIN DISRAELI: FATHER OF THE WORLD WARS" at tomatobubble.com and the "Background to Treason" series at nationalvanguard.org) --not to mention almost innumerable other nefarious intrigues over the last several hundred years. Mike Piper explained the rise of the Rothschilds and other elite Jewish families to ultimate power in the UK in his classic work The New Babylon and the breadth and depth of their influence in America in The New Jerusalem.

. . .Here's what some big names have said about America's #1 Banned Book:
. . . • A famed Hollywood screenwriter and victim of the "witch hunts" of the 1950s
. . . "Michael Collins Piper has laid out the only scenario for the JFK assassination that makes ultimate sense. He's a gutsy guy who hasn't been afraid to confront the truth head on. That's what America is all about. Final Judgment is a masterpiece that would make a great film—but it's not likely one that will ever be made."
. . . (One of the movie industry's most prolific screenwriters, the colorful Bill Norton was described by The Sunday World of London (on April 9, 2000) as "a leading Hollywood movie figure" and "a dedicated socialist and a man with strong religious beliefs who had helped various left-wing causes." In the late 1940s and early 1950s Norton was a hostile witness during the infamous anti-communist "witchhunts" of the House Un-American Activities Committee.)
. . . • A respected veteran American author, journalist and foundation official
. . ."I think you've pinned the tail on the donkey. In my estimation, Final Judgment ranks as the most important book of the 20th century."
|—William J. Gill|
. . .(Gill—who died just as this edition of Final Judgment was going to press—was the author of such books as Trade Wars Against America, The Ordeal of Otto Otepka, Suite 3505: The Story of the Draft Goldwater Movement, and Why Reagan Won. A journalist with United Press International and the Pittsburgh Press, Gill also wrote for Life, Fortune, the Saturday Evening Post, Reader's Digest and National Geographic. He also served as executive director of the prestigious Allegheny Foundation and was a well-known Washington representative for the domestic steel industry.
. .• One of America's most hard-driving young independent investigative reporters
. . .Shortly before his strange death in Phoenix, Arizona on June 16, 2003, journalist Brian Downing Quig wrote Michael Collins Piper and said:
. . . "A very important person gave me your book. So I started to read what I would not have purchased at a dollar book sale. I was hostile to the thesis stated on your cover! But I looked at the photos and then read every word. I am now convinced that you have seen and now help others see the largest feature of the JFK assassination that has been missed by all up to this period. I think that Final Judgment delivers all that you promise."
|—Brian Downing Quig|
. . .(Quig was best known for his inquiries into the death of reporter Don Bolles and later for his work on the Charles Keating scandal.)
. . .And here's what famed American populist historian Eustace Mullins says about FINAL JUDGMENT . . .
. . "Only once in a decade does a book appear which immediately becomes a 'must read' for all concerned patriots. Final Judgment is such a book. Final Judgment is a 'must' book because it raises and answers so many questions which we need to know about.
. . ."You need to know everything in this book if you are to understan the subversive forces which are destroying our nation.
. . ."Final Judgment is ammunition for the coming war of liberation for America. Victory is not possible without information, and this book has given us the information we need.
. . ."You will wait a long time, if ever, before you see such a gargantuan assembly of vital information as you'll find in this book."
. . . Here's what Australian-based JFK assassination researchers have to say about FINAL JUDGMENT . . .
. . .MICHAEL COLLINS PIPER MUST BE A GLUTTON FOR PUNISHMENT. Upon the first release of his book, Final Judgment, a storm of controversy erupted in the United States with certain "pressure groups" trying hard to have the book banned. Since then, Final Judgment has gone through three more printings — and the controversy hasn't abated.
. . .We here in Australia believe that all theories on the JFK assassination should be heard, no matter whether you agree with them or not. Heck, we even bought and read Gerald Posner's Case Closed, and there isn't a more outlandish theory than his! Trying to get another book banned because you don't agree with it, or it isn't Politically Correct (the greatest censorship drive of the 80s and 90s), is just the kind of thing we fight against. It's just the same as groups such as the FBI and CIA "redacting" lines of text here and there. People in glass theories shouldn't throw books, so to speak.
. . .So, we here at Probable Cause are proud to review Final Judgment and hope that we never go down the path of the "American Model" — freedom of speech and the First Amendment and all that — yeah, okay, until you start speaking out and stepping on other people's toes. They line you up for a takedown. Boy, does Michael Collins Piper know about that!
. . .Okay, so after that little editorial, what is Final Judgment about? Piper's thesis is that Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad, played a key role in the assassination alongside the CIA and organized crime. Throughout his presidency, JFK was involved in an increasingly bitter behind-the-scenes dispute with Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion over Israel's steadfast determination to build a nuclear arsenal. JFK wanted them to stop. But they had other ideas.
. . .Sound far-fetched? Well, actually, you'll be surprised how many well-known "JFK assassination players" have links to the Mossad and we were quite impressed with the documented evidence within the book. Still, you'll have to read this one for yourself to decide. Piper is under attack from the ADL in the U.S. for this book and, really, it's not warranted. Did the French community in the U.S. get upset when it was suggested there was a French connection in the assassination? No. But then again, perhaps they don't have the lobbying power of the ADL.
. . .The Internet Review of Final Judgment by the Australia-based JFK assassination group, "Probable Cause." The review also gave Final Judgment a three star rating — out of a possible four stars."
|"Novel indeed. Manages to weave together some of the key threads in a tapestry that many say is unique."|

5 of 5 Star Rating: Unequaled, September 22, 2006
By Sample Reviewer One
If all other books written about the JFK Assassination are to be categorized, especially Government- anctioned ones; i.e. the "Warren Commission Report", they belong to such categories as "Deviant Deceptions", "Fanciful Fictions", or how about "Pompous Pretensions." This book on the other hand is in a category all by itself, "Factual." The little bit of speculative views, which are distinguished in this book as such, make more sense and are more reasonable than any other book that lay claims to theirs as being factual. Those writers are either, ignorant of, or intentionally hiding the truth, that Michael Collins Piper so clearly articulates. Thank you Michael Collins Piper for this excellent unmasking, you are a rare breed.

5 of 5 Star Rating: Excellent Book couldn't put it down!!, April 18, 2006
By Sample Reviewer Two
Finally the big picture as to who would have ordered the killing of an American President.
Sure , the operation as we know it still occoured [sic] which still makes me loath the CIA and Secret Service for participating in it. But , "the powerfull force" has been uncovered and exposed--finally.
And without the "established" media, the coup could have not been covered up forever, as it was.
Piper does an excellent job of making every connection to the coup come back to Israel, and it is clear that State Survival is clearly a motive for murder. Not munitions plants, political survival, petty revenge and so forth.
The "unthinkable" had to happen only for such a grand reason. The survival of a country.
I recently listened again, to the American University Speech given by Mr. Kennedy the summer of his demise and can't help but think that speech put the icing on the cake for the plotters.
Another disturbing little known fact until "Final Judgement" was that Kennedy promoted Alegerian independence in 1956. Support for this Arab state resulted in the asassination attempt on DeGaul by the same force that ultimately teamed up with our CIA and killed JFK.
Unfortunately,if JFK had lived and implemented his even handed approach to Middle Eastern affairs, the world terrorism situation would not be as it is. Instead , US policy has been one sided and this has created resentment in the Arab world.
