President Donald J. Trump Tweeted Saturday morning that he will approve the release of sensitive files and documents relating to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The congressionally set deadline for a president to release the documents is Oct. 26, one day before Trump is slated to visit the city for a fundraiser.
The president’s Tweet leaves some room to maneuver.
Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 21, 2017
It is hard to overestimate the anticipation of this release, as Kennedy’s short administration has been frozen in the American mindset as a golden age, or Camelot, cut short by a mysterious sniper’s bullet, while the young president and his glamorous first lady, Jacqueline B. Kennedy transversed by motorcade through Dallas’s Dealey Plaza on his way to another speech on his tour of Texas.
The Dallas Morning News wrote upon getting the news of the pending release:
Those who are sure that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone are eager for vindication and new jigsaw pieces to fill the void spots in the puzzle. So are those who blame the mob, Fidel Castro, the Soviets or the military-industrial complex.
Lost on neither camp is the fact that the authority to decide which secrets to keep sealed for another decade or more rests with a president known for indulging conspiracy theories.
The release by Oct. 26, 2017 was established in the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, written and sponsored by Kennedy’s friend Sen. John H. Glenn Jr. (D.-Ohio).

More Americans Now Identify as Republicans Than They Do As Democrats
The change in party registration is a major development in national politics.
More Americans now identify as Republicans than they do as Democrats, according to new polling regarding party affiliation conducted by Gallup.
According to the polling, conducted on January 16th-19th, 30% of American identify as Republicans. 27% identify as Democrats. The largest category consists of independents, who form 42% of registered voters. Independents have consistently made up the largest category of American voters for decades.
The development represents a rarity in American politics, as generally Democrats have a numerical advantage in terms of party registration throughout recent political history. The last two times that more Americans were registered as Republicans than they were as Democrats was in May 2016 and December 2011, an oddity that only lasted for a month both times.
It should be especially concerning for Democrats that they’re losing their registration advantage to Republicans in the midst of a competitive Democratic Presidential primary. One would think that flocks of voters would rush to register as Democrats in order to cast votes in the primary, but if anything is occurring, it seems to be the opposite.
It’s possible controversial proposals to open the borders and confiscate firearms could be driving Americans to abandon their Democratic Party registration. Polling reveals that the percentage of registered Democrats has declined four percentage points from 31% to 27% since November.
Independents also state that they lean more to the GOP than they do to the Democratic Party, by a handsome lead of 48% to 44%.
As mainstream media pundits proclaim what they hope will be the imminent death of the Republican Party, the opposite seems to be happening. A 30% share of national registered voters is a strong figure for the GOP, one only rarely matched in the last two decades of polling conducted on the figures.
The Democratic Party is largely occupied with its latest round of election integrity scandals, and may be unequipped to lead the voter registration efforts necessary to regain its traditional advantage in advance of the 2020 presidential election.
