Emerging consensus that LBJ killed JFK?
renewamerica.com ^ | March 31, 2014 | Jeff Lukens

Posted on 03/31/2014 2:11:05 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

...Lyndon Johnson was a loutish psychopathic willing to do anything to advance his rise to power. His rise was fueled by graft, corruption, and murder. Yes, murder. LBJ's hitman, Malcolm Wallace, had killed seven other people in Johnson's rise to power, including LBJ's own sister, Josefa Johnson.

...As the rift between Kennedy and hardliners widened, into the void stepped Lyndon Johnson. Never to let opportunity go to waste, LBJ found the ultimate solution to his Bobby Baker scandal that was coming to a boil on Capitol Hill. LBJ's days were numbered, and he was facing possible prison. Kennedy was already showing signs that Johnson would be dumped from the 1964 ticket. With his ruthless drive for power, and RFK as the likely successor to the JFK legacy, LBJ would be out in the cold, except of course, if he could pull off the crime of the century, kill JFK, and garner public support in the process.

...For many years, Johnson was a neighbor and a close confidante to J. Edger Hoover, Director of the FBI. Normally, people like him would be in jail, but in LBJ's case, he held much sway with Hoover and the justice system. JFK, however, planned to force Hoover out in 1965 with the mandatory retirement at 70 for all federal employees.

... Johnson's mistress, Madeleine Brown, told investigators years later that Johnson told her that evening, "After tomorrow, those goddamn Kennedys will never embarrass me again. That is no threat. That is a promise."

...LBJ was in the pale blue Lincoln in the motorcade, two cars back from the President's car. LBJ was seen to be ducking low in his car as it approached Elm Street even before the shots were fired. He knew the shots were coming, and he was trying to take cover.

The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ, by Roger Stone; LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination, by Phillip F. Nelson; Who Really Killed Kennedy?, by Jerome R. Corsi, the authors explain the psychology of LBJ, and how he conspired to bring together the details of the plot, and the cover-up that followed.

Yeah I agree ... it’s a consensus of the crazies, and their pets, of course ... :-) ...

“Consensus” - the judgment arrived at by most of those concerned.
[Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary]

It’s certainly not the consensus of the public ...

Mr. Lukens seems unfamiliar with history. I noticed years ago that many/most of the JFK assassination conspiracy books blamed LBJ.

While 50% of those who occupied our White House this century were capable of having innocent Americans killed to advance their careers, I suspect the percentage in the previous century was dramatically less. That level of evil is extremely rare. I despise LBJ, but the accusation is absurd.

Absurd, perhaps, when it comes to evidence. But hardly absurd in terms of the man's capabilities.

LBJ was an evil man; thoroughly amoral and quite capable of ordering the death of JFK...and anybody else who got in his way.

You mean his Great Society programs and Civil Right act which morphed into anti-white affirmative action which gives us today out and out anti white racism throughout the Federal Govt. Plus the disastrous 1965 immigration act which opened up the floodgates to the 3rd world 

LBJ was the original Democrat vote buyer raiding the Treasury to buy votes or at least on a mega scale

It’s a modifier of “consensus” ... thus consensus is the operative word.

I have said it for years. This guy was never above murder to get political expedience. He did it before Kennedy’s death, so why not this death?

This person Wallace is the key.

Yea, I know but just whispering it deserved a response for those who buy that. :)

Science in itself demands non-adherence to consensus, despite what Al and Barry tell us. Thoery is the bedrock of science and consensus can only be driven by facts either proved or disproved by the facts derived by investigating said theories, honestly and openly. It is what they call peer review.

Peer review during the dark ages was at the stake and sadly peer review today is at the end of a government grant.

I agree. I was just a kid when it happened but talking to my parents about it as an adult, they said they and most every one they knew thought he was responsible. I grew up hearing it rehashed over and over and the more you heard, the more it became obvious of a government cover up. For example, if the government wasn’t involved, why was all the evidence locked up until a year in the future when they knew everyone involved would be dead?

Interesting theory on Johnson. It will also be interesting to know (although I will probably be on the dirt side of the grass) more about the Clinton and Odumbo days to read what, if anything history provides. Certainly there have been a lot of “unexplained” deaths related to both Clinton and Odumbo’s terms in office. The good thing is that neither of them has met with one of their own plans.

The same way you see people that are suspicious of Obama’s dubious mysterious past referred to as birthers. You’ve got your LBJ defender trolls just as you have your Obama defender trolls. They try to make people seem stupid for questioning the propaganda they are being fed and it’s more often than not a successful method for shutting people up.

Malcolm Wallace’s fingerprints are near the window in the building from which JFK was shot. At the time of the shooting, Oswald was downstairs in the cafeteria.

This is called evidence.

If LBJ was indeed a “loutish psychopathic willing to do anything to advance his rise to power,” then why did he give up a presidency before an election that he probably would have won?

Truly was an evil man ... it was Lyndon Baines Johnson who stated, “I’ll have those n****** voting Democratic for the next 200 years” as he confided with two like-minded governors on Air Force One regarding his underlying intentions for the “Great Society” programs. He turned the Demonrat Party into the new slave masters! Well they have 50 of those years under their belt ... no sign that the base is waking up!

It’s hard to say what it means with no more details than that. What was your point of view? Are you saying there was only one way to get in and out of the book depository and you were in full view of it? How old were you at the time? ....so on and so forth....

It is well known that LBJ disliked the Kennedy’s and had the most to gain from the assassination. As POTUS, he would be in an ideal position to suppress or manipulate the investigation. The bad karma no doubt haunted Johnson’s presidency. That plus guilt played a role in his decision not to seek another term. I just always though the LBJ hypothesis mad the most sense, but have been too busy living my life to get into it deeply.
