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.

Lyndon Johnson was NOT governor of Texas. Why should I believe anything else these people write when they are so sloppy about major details.

I always thought Oswald was framed. He coukd have equiped himself with a much better weapon. And if you wrote a novel in which you had the villin equiped with a Carcano rife the publisher would have said change the weapon, no one will believe that. Also a magizine published photos several years later which showed people pointing to the grassy knoll and police running towards it.

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.

IIRC, Jack Ruby was dead within the year as well.

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.

You're right. There is no proof whatsoever.

Now granted, I'm into the Perry candidacy but that was the first thing that struck me when I asked myself why would someone ask Caroline to release these tapes (the mini-series thing sounds so bogus and is full of holes) and she would agree? The Kennedys don't air their dirty laundry.

If Rick Perry catches fire -- with the country in the straights that it's in -- his coattails could be huge and the Left would be sunk on the eve of their great victory.

After campaigning unsuccessfully for the Democratic nomination in 1960, Johnson was asked by John F. Kennedy to be his running mate for the 1960 presidential election.".... Source

THE GUILTY MEN was a “documentary” that was on the NON-History Channel in 2003, the 40th Anniversary of the Coup. The show was on for two days before it was pulled. But it was not the only hour of the 3 additional MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY additions, all THREE were pulled.

IF you have a functioning brain, and most Americans don’t, you can know Johnson was at the top of the coup. The other major player was J Edgar Hoover, that cross dressing radical queer FBI Director who got all the evidence from Dallas and forged, altered, lied as necessary.

Future President Gerald Ford was the white rat who fed info to Hoover so that he could be sure to keep the Warren Commission baffled.

Arlen Specter also knew the rewards came to those who hid the truth.

This has never bee a mystery, it’s always been a lie. Why is the US Government lying even today? Because Hoover, LBJ, Nixon, and King George Bush I were involved or had knowledge.

Think of it another way: If you can kill a President in front of hundreds of people and hijack our government to cover it up, getting a Muslim elected President whose mission is to destroy the United States economically and then enslave it’s people is child’s play.

Americans are the biggest fools in history.

My thought as well. The miniseries could have been dismissed out of hand through a press release from Kennedy calling it sensationalist pap. While it would have garnered attention when it aired, today it wouldn't even be worth putting in the $3 DVD bin at Walmart.

These tapes, if they contain what they are said to contain, will be MUCH more damaging because they will become part of the historic record.

THE GUILTY MEN was based on a book by Barr McClellan, the father of Bush Press Secretary Scott McClellan. Barr was a lawyer that went to work for LBJ’s law firm (the one he used to represent him) in 1966. He said he heard oher’s brag about the assassintion.

LBJ had JFK killed because one of the murders wouldn’t NOT go away. An agricultural agent named Henry Marshall would not take a bribe and LBJ said GET RID OF HIM. Marshall shot himself FIVE times with a bolt action rifle, his body was cremated and no evidence was collected. IT was ruled a suicide. Investigations were on going when JFK was shot.

LBJ’s ticket out of jail was Elm Street.

A hard tie to LBJ was Mac Wallace’s finger print was found in the sniper’s nest. The suck up morons who believe the government say that this was NOT Mac Wallace’s fingerprint but watch the expert swear it was. The Government finds idiots to back up their storys and the NON -History Channel shows the lies.

It would be impossible that a corrupt government could hijack our legal system thinks the American brainwashed public but it is obvious that is what happened. See my last post on why TODAY this story is important. It is very important that you understant what happened then so you can understand today’s headlines.

The Muslim in Chief really wants you to continue to trust your government.

Lyndon Johnson was white trash.

The Kennedys were and are white trash.

The liberal mind has a serfish compulsion to get down on one's knees and bow before some sort of "royalty." Why anyone would mistake the Kennedy crowd as royalty instead of sleazy grifters is beyond me.

You beat me to it.

There could be any number of reasons the tapes were released right now. I was a senior in HS when JFK became president. There’s no doubt I would have voted for him if I could. He and his family were young and attractive. He was intelligent and quick sense of humor. He was a war hero with a bad back to prove it. The images of his son crawling around his desk in the Oval Office were priceless. His short administration was literally Camelot. Finally he was struck down by an assassin.

By then I was convinced Daley’s Chicago machine stole the election for him, but what the hell—that was politics. Also, we knew about his father’s bootlegging past and his Nazi sympathy. But what the hell. That was the father not the son. And we had the numerous, physically attractive and talented Kennedy clan cavorting on their Hyannis Port beach playing touch football. His Catholicism was forgotten and we all reveled in the Camelot sunshine as it was breathlessly reported to us by the media.

After Kennedy’s assassination Camelot’s dark side began to emerge. JFK’s ubiquitous womanizing. Then RFK’s assassination. Looks like he was the most moral of the bunch. Then we watched the ongoing Ted Kennedy train wreck. We all wondered what Jackie could possibly see in an ugly Greek shipping tycoon but we forgave her because she and her children were Camelot’s survivors. Beginning with the Johnson years being an American became progressively more depressing. But we had JFK’s Camelot years to hold on to and look back on.

Now it turns out Jackie may not be the purity queen we wished her to be. JFK Jr. is dead having never really achieved much. The bloated Teddy continually demonstrated a total absense of a moral compass. He even got away with murder.

So very very sad.

Jackie O didn’t “know” either. Instincts are not objective proof.

You’re in Oliver Stone territory. Hope you’re comfortable there.

But when you guys waste your time on baseless unprovable, yet in your mnd unfalsifiable, accusationing, you reveal more about yourself than you do about LBJ or anyone else.

I agree with you. I think Johnson was a poor President and at times a rotten human being, but to accuse him of involvement in the assassination is ludicrous. If Jackie really said this, it was probably out of bitterness and grief.

I still hold in my mind along with all the other speculations/theories that possibly JFK was assassinated because he dared to print millions of authentic USA dollars which would be in competition against Fed Reserve dollars that are really owned/controlled by international bankers such as the Rothchilds. This international cabal wasn’t about to let a renegade USA president upset the applecart set up years ago under Wilson to control the USA economy.

The usual motives would be money, power, revenge, sympathy, attention.

Absent any information to the contrary, I’ll go with money for $500, Alex.

Don’t think there are any players left in the LBJ family that she is trying to embarrass.

Don’t think she is trying to jumpstart a failed political career and if she were, this would seem a funny way to go about doing it.

Caroline is really a very private person and presumably not someone who is an attention whore.

Absent any new information, I’ll go with the most handy explanation is that there is a need for cash and this is a convenient way to raise same. Cash which would go directly to here side of the family and wouldn’t have to be split umpteen ways.
