The Late President’s Own Words on His Life and Legacy, the JFK Assassination, George Bush, the September 11th Attacks, and More

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Apr. 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — FlatSigned Press, a publishing house and rare books distributor, has released exclusive new writings by the late President Gerald R. Ford. The book, entitled “A Presidential Legacy and The Warren Commission” (ISBN-13: 978-1-934304-02-0), provides a fascinating look into the mind of a great American leader in the final years before his death.

Pres. Ford book - (c) Send2PressIn this posthumous publication, the former president speaks as the last surviving member of the legendary Warren Commission, which investigated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. In a detailed outline of the Commission’s final report, President Ford addresses the lingering questions and conspiracy theories surrounding the Kennedy assassination one by one, and confirms the role of the CIA in hiding and destroying information regarding the assassination. In addition, the former president also provides a broad and inspiring account of his own life and historical significance, as well as his views on modern politics and partisanship.

Ford’s admirers and detractors alike will recognize the bold and straightforward language that was characteristic of the late president as he addresses controversial topics, including:

    * The Lessons Ignored from the Warren Report – and their Relevance to the September 11th Attacks on the U.S. – “Why were those communications still so inadequate in September of 2001?”

    * Confirming the Role of the CIA in Hiding and Destroying Information on the Kennedy Assassination

    * Ford’s relationship with Presidents Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter

    * The Pardon of President Richard M. Nixon – and its Role in His 1976 Defeat

    * The Dangerous Loss of U.S. Manufacturing Jobs – and its Threat to the Economy

    * A Call to Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)

    * Bringing “Trust and Credibility Back” to the U.S. Government

President Ford also confirms and explains one of the most enduring mysteries of the Kennedy assassination: the alleged sound of gunfire coming from the infamous “grassy knoll” in Dallas. Whether the reader is interested in the John F. Kennedy assassination as a defining moment in American history, a transformational event in American culture, or one of the world’s most enduring murder mysteries, President Ford calls on all Americans to now read the Warren Report:

“Due to rampant conspiracy legends, including those promulgated by the Oliver Stone movie, Congress has spent millions of taxpayer dollars investigating and re-investigating this tragic assassination. Your biggest contribution as an American citizen would be to read the Warren Commission Report… I know that reading a technical report can be very daunting and boring, but I can assure you that this one is quite captivating.”

President Ford also chastises the U.S. government for not acting on the findings of the Warren Commission’s final report before the tragic events of September 11, 2001:

“There are still valuable lessons to be gleaned from this document. Difficulties with FBI-CIA interagency communications were among our key findings, and that was reinforced by later investigations. Why were those communications still so inadequate in September of 2001?”

The final report of the Warren Commission is included in its entirety within A Presidential Legacy and The Warren Commission, and is available at bookstores nationwide. A very limited number of leather-bound, numbered editions, autographed by the late President Gerald R. Ford, are available exclusively through the publisher at, which also owns the publishing rights to this, the late President’s final memoir.

“Ford echoes the original, core principles of his Republican Party, social moderation and fiscal conservatism, lost by the current Republican Party leadership, but which are expressed by current Republican frontrunner Rudolph Giuliani,” said Tim Miller, president and CEO of FlatSigned Press.
