Skip to comments.LBJ Was The Man Who Killed Kennedy
Posted on 11/05/2013 5:18:16 PM PST by Pontiac
I realize that delving into the world of assassination research and a belief in a conspiracy will lead some to brand me as an extremist or a nut, but the facts I have uncovered are so compelling that I must make the case that Lyndon Baines Johnson had John Fitzgerald Kennedy murdered in Dallas to become president himself and to avert the precipitous political and legal fall that was about to beset him.
When Lodge was in his eighties, he served vigorously as the chairman of Ronald Reagans campaign for President in Connecticut, a post I had recruited him for as the Northeast regional director.
Lodge had done Kennedys dirty work coordinating a campaign with the CIA to assassinate Catholic Vietnamese President Diem. I couldnt resist asking John Lodge about his brother. Did you ever ask your brother who really killed Kennedy? I said.
His lips spread in a tight grin. Cabot said it was the Agency boys, some Mafiosi, he looked me in the eye . . . and Lyndon.
Did your brother know in advance? I asked.
Lodge took a sip of his Manhattan.He knew Kennedy wouldnt be around to fire him. LBJ kept him at his post so he could serve his country.

Just curious if anyone has read the book. I browsed through the Warren Commission Report in my teens and found it boring and implausible. I havent yet read Stones book but I am considering getting and reading the book.
This will be an interesting thread
Some conspiracy theorist probably concludes that JFK committed suicide in the car.
JFK committed suicide to frame LBJ.
like live in the real world ever one knows that the kennedy assassination was bushes fault
I was struck by his claim that John Mitchell (Nixon's AG) and Nixon himself were his sources for a lot of this.
I believe LBJ was capable of anything but I have not seen a shred of evidence that he had anything to do with the assassination of Kennedy.
I read a book review some time back from Am Spec about a Cuban defector who implicated Castro. It sounded very plausible. Unfortunately I can’t remember the title or author.
LBJ was a jerk, but I have a hard time believing he’d do such a thing.
I thought so too.
I think it will be rather lively.
After all, it was you and me.
If “they” could pull off a conspiracy this big, this vast, involving so many diverse masses of people from all works of life, professions and levels, and who all go to their graves with the secrets, including the new ones who maintain the secrets, then it isn’t even worth the effort to wonder about it because they would have God like powers to cloud men’s minds anyway.
Just saw one documentary which focused on ballistics and claimed that the kill shot came from a frangible round, from a secret service ar-15.
I tend to think it was just the nut, Oswald, who got in a lucky shot.
Okay, so I guess the thread's not a total loss ...
I believe it
Senior or Junior?
I think Junior would have been in High School.
It certainly wasn't Oswald. He was in the middle of his awesome cover of "Long Tall Sally" when the assassination occurred.
I’ll make the following observation. I’ve been to the book depository building in Dallas. Ive stood next to the window Oswald used; the actual window is sealed behind a plexiglass shield. From just next to Oswalds position I could easily see the “X” painted on the roadway of Dealy Plaza marking the spot where Kennedy was hit.
I’m a fairly good shot; certainly not a Marine marksman. I could have made those shots pretty easily with a bolt action rifle. I have no doubt.
I have thought that Johnson was behind the assassination for years.
that rings a Bell but it is whirling in my head like a helicopter
Ancient astronaut theorists believe that aliens killed JFK with a crystal skull that they brought from Stonehenge at the time when Nostradamus was building a nuclear reactor with Leonardo da Vinci and some aliens who were whizzing past Roswell New Mexico on their way to Area 51 where that guy with the weird hair was learning for the very first time what barbers did for a living. Just sayin, cuz the New World Order uses that as a cover story for the real truth which is ...
I was only three years old and can’t remember killing Kennedy but I will take your word for it.
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me?
it was preordained
I think that LBJ was in on it, but I think the Democrat party was also in on it. We find out now that JFK had a drug problem. He was having an affair with a communist agent. He was very sexually active and becoming indiscreet. LBJ was in on it, but the Democrat party tightened up the JFK loose end. And without the Vietnam War, everything might have turned out just fine for the Democrats.
But could you have fired 3 shots in six seconds hitting the target twice?
I didn’t think we could post youtube links.
You might have something there.
Those left-handed Telecasters can be pretty dangerous.
First graphic I remember seeing on FR waaaaaaaaay back in the day.
LBJ: “Who can we get to do the job?”
Conspirator #2: “We’ve got a guy just back from the USSR. His name is Oswald. Everyone will think he’s a nut, but he can do it. We’ll put another shooter in a second location to make sure.”
Right. Having seen the conspiracy nonsense with the 9/11 “Truther” movement, I’d put this in the same category.
I heard that a couple days after the assasination.
I just did not know what to think, I hope it is false.
I’d say its not impossible. I’ll tell you this, actually visiting the book depository building made plain to me two things. Dealy Plaza is a very small space, just an intersection of city streets really. Second, the shots were not long shots by any means. A practiced Marine rifleman could have made those shots most of the time, IMHO.
The problem with these theories is figuring out who with power to preserve DIDN’T want John Kennedy murdered.
Barr McClellan wrote a book on it:
I think I was choosing the wrong song, I was thinking of Dion.
I dont think so.
Why would they take down Kennedy knowing that he would be replaced by LBJ who was in many ways worse?
I was five months past my nineteenth birthday and stationed in Keflavik Iceland as an electronics technician on a US Navy communications station when John Kennedy was shot. On a communications base messages from all over the globe are coming through at all times. I didn’t have access to them, my job was to help keep the equipment, which was very unreliable in that era, working. I had nothing to do with the actual communications but I noticed that from the first there were all kinds of rumors about what had actually happened and one of those rumors was that LBJ was behind it. From the first day there were a lot of people who did not believe the official story.
It’s like “Murder on the Orient Express.”
These conspiracy BS theories are just that --- all BS.
One man killed JFK. That was a crazy little Commie loser named Lee Harvey Oswald. Just like a crazy loser named Hinkley almost killed Reagan with the cameras rolling all in full sight. And before that, a couple of other crazies tried to kill Ford out on San Fransisco.
Crazies do crazy things. Sane people can't understand their motives.
There was no conspiracy. Not sexy. No money to be made from that fact. But it is a fact none the less.
Isn't capitalism great?
JFK was in Houston before he went to Dallas. My husband had a premonition when he was in Houston that someone was going to kill JFK. He was very anxious for him to get out of Houston before it happened. He would have preferred that he got out of Texas too. My husband doesn't have many premonitions but he was right on target with this one.
This book gets down to Texas power brokers and their front man Lyndon Baines Johnson. A must read “Blood, Money & Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K.”.
Especially since LBJ was responsible for Lithuania bombing Pearl Harbor. He never got over that.
