Explosive Jackie O tapes 'reveal how she believed Johnson killed JFK and had affair
Daily Mail UK ^ | August 8, 2011 | Rachel Quigley and Liz Thomas

Posted on 08/08/2011 1:59:32 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Jackie Onassis believed that Lyndon B Johnson and a cabal of Texas tycoons were involved in the assassination of her husband John F Kennedy, ‘explosive’ recordings are set to reveal.

The secret tapes will show that the former first lady felt that her husband’s successor was at the heart of the plot to murder him.

She became convinced that the then vice president, along with businessmen in the South, had orchestrated the Dallas shooting, with gunman Lee Harvey Oswald – long claimed to have been a lone assassin – merely part of a much larger conspiracy.

Texas-born Mr Johnson, who served as the state’s governor and senator, completed Mr Kennedy’s term and went on to be elected president in his own right.

The tapes were recorded with leading historian Arthur Schlesinger Jnr within months of the assassination on November 22, 1963, and had been sealed in a vault at the Kennedy Library in Boston.

Yes, she released the tapes. You don’t think that’s a betrayal, considering her mother left instructions that they wait 50 years? (for money)

This wasn’t the betrayal I was talking about by her son. I meant how he befriended and got into bed with the pornographer who published illicitly taken naked photographs of his mother. You think that’s normal?

According to the article, permission for ABC to release the tapes was a successful bribe to stop the network from running the Kennedy miniseries. What a sad sick twisted family.

I`m always entertained by conspiracy theories that claim (fill in the blank) conspired with LHO. Nothing in Oswald`s background showed he was anything but an anti-social borderline nutcase who had a good aim.

Didn`t Jackie at one point also acknowledge it was Oswald when she talked about the irony of JFK`s being assassinated by a low-level communist and not over his stances on civil rights?

I guess that answers the age-old question: We saw Cid Caesar, but who was William Holden? (Maybe not an age-old question, actually, a Madlib from that era.)

Which leaves unanswered: Has Irene Dunne what Nathalie Wood?

Jackie O stories remind me of the 2008 0bama campaign.

Remember how the MSM kept mentioning “Camelot” to give Omoslem that JFK aura?

They really jumped the shark trying to portray the obese Moo-chelle (aka Chewbacca) as the “new” Jackie Onassis!

Then, Chewbacca started wearing exact replicas of Jackie O’s dresses during her junk-food binges. Except 76 sizes bigger.

“Lyndon Johnson was white trash”

No doubt there. But high-level involvement in the assassination of JFK wouldn`t have survived all these years without someone blowing the lid open. Even Watergate`s “Deep Throat” came out before he passed on.

Read the book “The Dark Side of Camelot” by Hearse. This was beyond sick and twisted. Jackie O was “paling around “ with Aristotle while Jack Kennedy was alive.

It is all very interesting and has been theorized forever but I’m wondering why Caroline agreed to release these tapes now.

The notion that it was to block a benign mini-series that was released anyway - even if she thought this would come out — would easily be dismissed with an.... I will not dignify this with a comment - comment. But to let these out now, near an election year, when 33 years remained on keeping them private, why?

My problem is that they trot out this garbage again most likely just to get our attention off of the current Dem outrages, and you and others here accomodate them.

Its useless drivel.

Besides. No one. Absolutely no one has any proof what so ever that LBJ had anything to do with it. You are engaging in malicious slander. I have no brief for LBJ. But that doesn’t make him an assassin, or a baby killer.

In case you haven’t noticed. Situation critical right now. Don’t let the left throw us off with 50 year old conpiracy obssessions.

This conspiracy talk often rests on the idea that LBJ as somehow more conservative than JFK.

Actually, it was the other way around with LBJ being a big spending liberal New Dealer whose Great Society with Medicare has helped us to get where we are today.....GOING BANKRUPT.

No one was killed in Watergate.

Higher stakes make for tighter lips.

Recall, Mob interests in Cuba were lost when someone called off air support for the Bay of Pigs invasion. Millions in nightclub action were lost to the Communists' regime as well as smuggling opportunities.

There were plenty of reasons for people to keep their mouths shut, and an accident here, a suicide there, an unfortunate plane crash, all add up over time. People 'in the know' might even have died of old age.

Jack was no saint, either.

The marriage was likely one 'to the right sort of people' and I'd just about bet it was arranged (Rose's tendrils anyone?), as much for appearances sake as anything.

Maybe there really was something there, maybe not, but my bet is that what things appeared to be was of paramount importance, what happened out of the public eye was a very different reality.

Unfortunately, there were Kennedy worshippers (still are), and now we are faced with the current lot the media and idiots have been fawning over. Crimes will continue to be hidden at the highest levels for the duration unless the MSM gets the sight glass in its collective navel cleaned and really sees what they are doing to our country by not just supporting the current fellow, but shielding him from reasonable and serious inquiry.

Why let a good slap at Texas go to waste.

I can’t understand WHY they would (and she’d allow) the release this of information, when they didn’t have to and no one was banging on their door asking.

I don’t buy the “deal” she made. It just doesn’t add up. The mini-series was shown anyway and if it had had some “shocking” revelation, she could have turned her back on the questions and no one would have blinked an eye.

Lots of groups had reason to be PO'd at JFK: Dixiecrats, CIA insiders, but especially the mob families, who were double crossed as well by little brother Bobby as AG.
I don't know if LBJ was in on the planning, but the fact that the assassin was himself assassinated within the day (clearly to shut his mouth for good) indicates a conspiracy.
Sure, there are lots of lone assassins with Marine Corps shooting skills lurking out there, but how many have access to the Presidential parade route and access to key buildings, as well as travel money to follow the Prez around? Lone assassin is almost an oxymoron in the JFK assassination case.

LBJ was a liberal guy, a New Dealer whose Great Society helped bankrupt this country.

Often they claim it was some sort of conservative LBJ conspiracy. I laugh at that.

Yes, and no.

If the shining city on the hill was a lie last time, what does that make the current derrivative? Even less.

It's about cracking the facade, the shiny false-front which promises a complete emporium, to find a two-seater outhouse behind it.

If the media worshipped JFK administration ran rank and foul, what of the current one, right down to Barry's shoe shine boy (Biden)?

JFK in his day is what the RINO’s are today. Both parties have been hijacked of affected by the progressive movement. I didn’t like him then either.

The Tea Party is the conservatives of old that need to move this country forward.

What reason does anyone have to believe the Kennedys will release every word of every tape and transcript? They give us what is useful to themselves as a political family. In this case, probably just enough to put in doubt the worst of what's in the documentary.

Damage control.

LBJ was capable of having Kennedy assassinated.
There were many of his enemies in Texas that were killed to get him in the Senate.
He (LBJ) was one of the worst presidents we ever had. Yes, ZERO has him beat, but not by much.
He had a disdain for the Kennedy's and he wanted the presidency and he knew his only way in was for JFK to die in office.
