Roger Stone: ‘Nixon thought LBJ killed Kennedy’
The Daily Caller ^ | November 22, 2013 | Patrick Howley

Posted on 11/22/2013 5:43:03 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Richard Nixon thought Lyndon Johnson killed John F. Kennedy, according to legendary political operative Roger Stone.

“Richard Nixon told me in 1982 that he immediately knew who Jack Ruby was when he saw him shoot Oswald,” Stone told The Daily Caller in an extensive interview.

Stone’s new book The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ is currently tearing up the Amazon bestseller list and even earned praise from Ron Paul.

Among other revelations, Stone told TheDC that Nixon hired Jack Ruby as a House committee informant at Johnson’s request years prior to the Kennedy assassination, which occurred 50 years ago today.

“Nixon said, ‘The damn thing is, I knew this Jack Ruby. Murray [Chotiner] brought him to me in 1947, said he was one of “Johnson’s boys” and that LBJ wanted us to hire him as an informant to the Committee. We did,’” according to Stone....

No one ever talks about Ruby.

And BTW, they made sure Ruby was door nail dead. There was no way to wrestle him to the ground?

I think Stone makes a very compelling case.

That’s an interesting thirdhand recollection, but while it *may* be true that Ruby worked for the Democratic Party in Texas (and wouldn’t be any great surprise, the Mob like the KKK is an overwhelmingly Demwit org) Ruby was ex- of Chicago, he’d been given the choice of getting out or getting whacked. He was assigned the job of shutting Oswald up, and really didn’t have any choice in the matter. He never cracked, he never talked, the code of silence.

Thats funny, so do I. Almost everything added up points to LBJ as complicit if not more.

Love him or hate him, Richard Nixon was easily one of the five smartest men to ascend to the presidency.

Ruby was also a known homosexual. Why has there never been a conspiracy that the Gay agenda had Kennedy killed for flaunting his heteroness?

“Richard Nixon, Henry Cabot Lodge and Barry Goldwater were convinced that Lyndon Johnson murdered JFK.

And Cabot Lodge had experience in assassinations, having engineered Diem's overthrow and assassination as US ambassador to Vietnam in '63.

LBJ said it was Castro—I still think it was the Mafia—revenge for killing Maryin Monroe.

Only a fool would believe anything beyond that lone nut Oswald doing it alone and Ruby doing it because he was as nuts as Oswald was.

I asked a former Dallas police officer (who had been there during that period) what he thought. He remarked that it was a consensus in the DPD that LBJ was behind it.

Note that no one here or among all the conspiracy theory promoters (for $$$) ever mentions the Soviets or Cuba. Why is that?

Always ask the question:

“Who has the most to gain?”

And the obvious answer is usually the right one.

"...LBJ said it was Castro—I still think it was the Mafia—revenge for killing Maryin Monroe....."

If it was the Mafia, it was because Kennedy didn't carry out his primary mission (and the reason he was elected)....to reclaim the casino/tourism business in Havana.

JFK really screwed up by not providing the full weight of American military at the Bay of Pigs.

Bull. I’m a submarine cold war vet...so what?

The only proof shows that Oswald did it alone. There is no other evidence of any kind showing any kind of any conspiracy of any kind. None, zero, zilch, nada. Anyone who says it was a conspiracy does a disservice to this nation and it’s history.

Get. Off. It. Man!

Ruby died in prison of cancer. Perhaps you’re thinking of someone else

Dad taped the radio broadcast of the day it happened from Dallus. Too many people saw too much for it to be one shot from one gun. Something happened that day “they” wanted to keep hidden. Guess they have successfully done that. So when will ALL the material become declassified. It’s been fifty years for Pete’s sake!

I know a woman who was a head waitress (not an staff but HEAD waitress!) less than a quarter mile from the assassination site, which to most rational people means being closer to the truth of what happened than working for two presidents and Al Haig, or being a street walking cop in Dallas, and she says it was Marilyn Monroe who arranged the assassination. She knows.
