Well there is one more thing that I just thought of. Robert Caro should be getting round to wrapping up his fourth and final installment of his LBJ biography covering the events of 1960 onwards. When this is due to come out I don’t know but it’s definitely been in the works for some time. Possible connection? I don’t know. But Caroline may still have some book industry contacts left over from her mother, and Caro is a New Yorker so who knows.
Ah, but he was a steely-eyed, opportunistic socialist....the step directly preceeding communism.
Even if Johnson wasn’t involved in the actual assasinatio0n of JFK he sure took advantage of it and rode it as long as he could.
Sometimes i wonder what life would be like in that alternate universe where Nixon won in 1960.
Some say that the JFK assassination “spooked the heck out of Nixon” which is why he got into the habit of recording his phone calls and slowly became so paranoid that he did himself in with Watergate.
If Nixon had won in 1960 maybe Nixon would have been a better president without all that 1968 baggage....
[ “Say what you will, but he (JFK) was no commie”.
Ah, but he was a steely-eyed, opportunistic socialist....the step directly preceeding communism.
He was a hell of a lot better than Johnson. Plus JFK from what I know off him knew about the issues of having high taxes concerning economic growth and was against high taxes.
JFk was an idealist, LBJ was an opportunist and a wickedly smart one at that.
LBJ gave use the “New Deal 2.0” while I think JFK would have given us the “New Deal 1.1” Johnson did his new deal the “great Society” as a mean for him to cement his power and that is what made him so damned dangerous as he was far more Machiavellian that JFK.
If it’s on ABC we certainly won’t view it.
I have to admit, it’s proven time and time again, that money is the root of all evil — along with involved useful idiots.
...I love a good conspiracy theory...
...I hear that crap all the time. “Let it go, it was along time ago.” “OK, then don’t bring up Jesus to me. I know all about Him and it’s personal, so quit buggin’ me about it...
...BTW, welcome aboard. Get’s rough sometime, try not to take it personal. Even though with some of the FReaks it is...
Being correct seldom gains you much popularity on this forum.
Hello LadyBird!!!! We are remarking on what JACKIE said....not Oliver Stone!! For a NEW freeper, you sure sound like a LEFTY from DU.......read first, before you remark....and mind your manners here, sonny.
I may be wrong, but it looks like the guy Johnson is looking at is winking at him
You are absolutely correct. All over the internet it's called the "wink photo." The winker is Texas congressman Albert Thomas. And check out the smile on Lady Bird's face.
Texas congressman Albert Thomas.
Excuse me? Read that post again. I believe Johnson was part of the plot.
He was. He finally made it to the presidency, and this was the only way he could do it.
I wish he would hurry up. I read the first volume in 1982.
Exactly - and there’s the example of William Manchester who planned a multivolume work in Churchill and never lived long enough to complete it.
OK so tell me then... why would the ENTIRE Kennedy family express satisfaction at the findings of the Warren Commission? And even if they hadn’t, why, through all these years, stay silent on it? All his faults aside, did Ted Kennedy strike you as someone who could be intimidated into silence about the killing of his brother?
Read Vince Bugliosi’s book, “Reclaiming History.” It breaks down and dissects all the conspiracy theories — and their theorists — and completely lays out a clear case as to why Oswald acted alone.
I've been to the site. The shots weren't that difficult.
As have I. I agree.
That's amazing! I did not know that.
Hell, yes! You're talking about a "man" who couldn't take responsibility for what obviously happened at Chappaquiddick. Edward Moore Kennedy was a coward. He wasn't going to take on the assassins...he was terrified for his own life from 1968 forward.
Even in his dying months, eh? I don`t dispute his intents toward self-preservation vis-a-vis Chappaquiddick, but nothing from him or ANY other member of the family?
I don’t doubt that he believed there would be retaliation (perhaps the release of the real sordid life he and his family lived) even after his death.
>>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 wasnt about to let a renegade USA president upset the applecart set up years ago under Wilson to control the USA economy.
Bugliosi in the inside cover says he covers ALL OF THE CONSPIRACY THEORIES and debunks every one of them. Unfortunately for him, he is going to look like a total fool when he finds out he may have covered all the theories but he did NOT cover what actually happened during the shooting.
Bugliosi spent over 20 years researching for his book. He became interested when he and Gerry Spence prosecuted/represented Oswald in a mock London trial in the 1980’s. Bugliosi “won” and Spence says only Bugliosi could have pulled it off. What the trial showed is that lawyers should not work on technolical issues because history will show virtually every one of these self proclaimed legaleze geniuses has actually proved himself to be a bumbling idiot.
You apparently haven’t read my book yet. It shows there is a simple way to solve the mystery. Once you know the truth, and now YOU don’t even have a clue, you will see this is a lie that even a child should have seen through. Over 80% of Americans do NOT believe the Warren Commission’s single bullet-lone gunman scenario. According to Bugliosi, one poll showed approx. 20% of Americans think it was LBJ. Of course it was LBJ. No one could have forged, lied, faked, killed etc. like LBJ.
But J Edgar Hoover was the man behind the lie. Hoover knew how easy it would be to fool America. The little queer pervert had been doing it for decades.
This video proves NOTHING but it is another nail in LBJ’s coffin. RFK clearly says LBJ is a viscious animal. I know you think (probably) the photographer was lying and LBJ’s Mistress is just spreading lies to get publicity.
Americans have to wake up and quit believing the fairy tale lies the US Government tells. Truth starts will realizing that the US Press thinks their job is to simply report what the US Government tells them.
Yes I’ve read and laughed at Vince Bugliosi’s RECLAIMING. He is an excellent researcher who I admire for that but I laugh at his analytical abilities. This clown brags during one of his lectures he can’t even use a digital camera and he says the legal notebook is his path to truth.
Bugliosi will one day realize just how big of a fool he is but he will not be alone.
Nixon was in Dallas flying out when JFK was landing. According to LBJ's mistress, Nixon was at the party attended by LBJ, Hoover, Merchason etc. When LBJ came out, he told Brown that "those SOB Kennedy's will never embarrass me again, that's no threat, that's a promise." That doesn't prove anything but it sure leads me to believe that Nixon had prior knowledge.
Nixon in one of his tapes during Watergate said the Warren Commission was one of the biggest scams in history which also leads me to beleive Nixon knew the truth.
Nixon of course did NOT have prior knowledge of Watergate, he was brought down with his cover up. WHY did he think he could get away with it? IMHO, it was because he knew the truth about JFK's coup (LBJ and J Edgar were at the top) and he felt he could tell the press any old lie and get away with it.
Right now we have a little clown lying about GUNWALKER. He is arrogant just like Nixon was. Want to impeach Obama? Put pressure on to get him on running guns into Mexico and then forcing people to lie about it. Issa gets it but he doesn't have the ammo yet to get Obama.
Understand what happened in the JFK assassination and you too can understand American History for the last 50 years. Right now, you and millions of other Americans don't have a clue.
Conspiracy theories are just that.. theories. The only physical evidence that ever existed was that which pointed to Oswald.
And your contention that a high percentage of Americans don’t support the conclusions of the Warren Commission... More than 70% supported Obama in January 2009... until they learned the truth. Unfortunately, American popular culture is rife with conspiracy theories on a lot of different fronts, e.g., the “fake” moon landings. Are you of the mindset those were all part of the “big lie?”
I don’t deny that governments lie to their people. What I deny is that this supposed conspiracy involving many different players from varied sectors somehow pulled this assassination off without prior detection on 22 Nov 1963. And not a single one of the participants ever divulged even so much as a deathbed confession. Not a one.
Don’t get me wrong, though.. conspiracy theories are exciting and fun... and I think a part of that is the fact those pursuing such theories feel they somehow can be the one who breaks it all open. Of course, they’re fascinating... because the finality of truth is so... final.
That's something I would like to hear explained to me.
The military expert has no idea what he is talking about.
