Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis believed Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the assassination of her husband, according to tapes recorded by the former first lady just months after President John F. Kennedy's death, the Daily Mail reports.

Richard Hoagland seems to believe that LBJ was behind it, also. He presents his evidence in this conference he gave about a year or so ago.

The press was getting ready to release the story that JFK was having an affair with a Russian spy. That would have killed the Democrat party. They couldn’t let it happen. JFK killed in Texas? Johnson had all his old cronies in Texas. They killed a President to save the Democrat party.

***I’ll wait to see what The National Inquirer has to say before making up my mind.***

Back in 1968, National Inquirer, if memory serves me correctly, showed telephoto shots of Jackie on one of Onassis’ islands with a man in a wheelschair who looked like Jack.

The claim was that Jack survived the assasination but was permanently braindamaged, so they flew him to Greece where he died a few years later and was buried at sea.

I remember when the History Channel aired that series “The Men Who Killed Kennedy”. It is also available on Netflix.
I remember that it caused a stir when it was first aired.

I always thought if you looked at it as a simple murder investigation that Johnson had the motive and the most to gain.

In any other country the vice-president would have been a prime suspect. Cui bono? Only LBJ had the influence to arrange things before the kill and the power to control the investigation after. He was extremely ambitious for the presidency. And according to JFK’s sister to be dropped from ticket in ‘64. Even if he were not dropped ‘68 was too long to wait for a man with a family history of heart disease. He was deep, very deep, in corruption and investigators were getting close to him. JFK was not coming to his rescue. After he became President that was all put to rest.
He had a history of corruption going back to his college days. None of this is proof but it is just a smidgen of the evidence.

A few years later, tht same bumper sticker was changed to read...NIXON’S THE ONE!

I remember reading how LBJ was stopped for speeding with his secretary in the auto. He was drinking beer and was allowed to proceed without getting a ticket.

Good point. Though I do believe Oswald had some help.

Interestingly, one of the least-popular versions of the Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories is the KGB theory - this despite the fact that Oswald defected to the Soviet Union and spent almost half his adult life behind the Iron Curtain.

When it comes to really bad Presidents, LBJ is easily in the top 5.
I'll go further and say he was THE worst of all time. He gave us: Fifty years later and working class Americans are still paying the price.

My father had watched LBJ swearing in. I remember my father told me that by the look in vice president’s eyes that my father knew Johnson had something to do with JFK’s death.

My mother who passed away in March at 89 y.o. made that same exact comment repeatedly over the past 45+ years. She was convinced. Said LBJ had a smirk on his face like the cat that ate the canary.

Anyone who who accepted the Warren report uncritically is beyond such touchy feeley diagnostics aids.

No investigator has ever had complete access to all information and much information was never available to the Warren Commission or anyone else.

That being said, there is such a principle as Occam's razor, and Kennedy's assassination is not exempt from that universal principle of logic.

I once asked my Dad who he thought was the biggest crook he had seen in the White House.

He said that it wasn’t Nixon, whom I thought would be his answer. He said that Nixon just got caught. He said LBJ.

He didn’t live to see “O magnificient one.” If he had he might have changed his opinion.

My grandma always thought Johnson did it, but honestly there were so many people inside and outside the country that wanted to get rid of him, it will probably never be known with certainty who was behind it.

Even the religion of peace due to Bobby’s visit and support of Isreal, not to mention the backlash from the assasinations they ordered. Some of the intelligence agencies may know, but if they have spilled the beans, the media has not reported it.

That is pretty bad. I consider going to the bathroom especailly #2 a private moment and moment not to be shared.

On LBJ, wouldn’t surprise me that he had a part on assassinating JFK. I know he also started down the road to get the American car industry to head for ruin.

> LBJ was an animal. He used to make staffers enter the rest room and take notes from him while he was on the john.

The LBJ connection makes sense for the following reasons:

1. Assassination took place in Texas [LBJ's Home]

2. Before the 1968 election, LBJ backed out of re-election with the look of a ghost scare on his face in that announcement. Something shook him up, like disclosure of the assassination.

3. The Freemasons had to work with the Mafia to accomplish this work. LBJ was a Freemason. And, in terms of conspiracy theory, Kennedy was bucking the Bilderbergers. It is interesting to note that the US stopped minting Silver Coins in 1964 -- probably part of the deal as repayment for co-operation in the assassination and coverup.

4. Vietnam was made into a major foul up as a place to send those who might talk. I imagine some folks might have been killed in Vietnam to keep them quiet.

5. Warren Commission members probably knew they would have to face the wrath of the Mafia and Freemasons if they found this was a conspiracy.

6. LBJ was a Freemason. There was some talk of John F. Kennedy shutting down Masonic Lodges on Military bases before the assassination. This point is unclear, but I have come across this. Kennedy made a number of enemies by trying to make what some consider were needed changes. I heard them from a conservative who said Kennedy was an economic conservative but progressively on social issues such as segretation.

Hell, I was a teenager when he was shot and we all got the day off from school. The speculation among my friends at the time was that Johnson was ultimately the puppeteer in the assassination. Even today I would not be suprised to find proof that he was responsible.

I'll do you a double. I pin both the JFK and MLK assassinations on LBJ.

There's no logical way some two bit hoodlum and thief would break out of prison, get an expensive,(about $300.00 at the time) high powered hunting rifle, and go out to assassinate the nation's foremost civil rights leader without a lot of serious support from important people. Then Ray went on the run around the world, assuming a host of identities that somebody else had to research for him and supply to him. Finally, he was represented by Percy Foreman, Texas' most prominent criminal defense lawyer, who promptly sold him out by pleading him guilty and getting him a life sentence.

As far as motive's concerned, LBJ's the one. By the timer of the assassination, MLK had become a royal pain in the fundament and embarrassment for LBJ. Remember, LBJ had turned most of the nation's civil rights policy over to MLK. MLK showed his appreciation by engaging in all sorts of sleazy sexual affairs, apparently some with seriously underage females; running "civil rights demonstrations" that promptly became riots, conveniently just after he left; attacking LBJ's Vietnam policy; and generally demanding something close to a socialist revolution. All of these shenanigans seriously undermined the DemonRats' and LBJ's efforts to retain their illicit power. Hence, the logical solution for LBJ was the "Final Solution to the MKK Problem," which he brilliantly applied, while he and the MSM blamed conservatives for the assassination, thereby enabling LBJ to continue and intensify his own socialist policies.

Yup, Bad guy. There are tapes of LBJ acknowledging that victory in VietNam was impossible, but he wouldn't think of withdrawing troops because he'd get tagged with who lost Vietnam, like Truman was tagged with who lost China. This was early in the escalation and before the really big antiwar protests.

Nixon was almost as bad, accepting in 73 almost the same deal he would have gotten in '69.Both men should be damned to Hell for what they did.

Even if he were not dropped ‘68 was too long to wait for a man with a family history of heart disease. He was deep, very deep, in corruption and investigators were getting close to him. JFK was not coming to his rescue. After he became President that was all put to rest.

You're so right. I was 21 at the time and in college. One thing I specifically remember was that Life magazine, pretty much of a Kennedy house rag, ran a very much anti-LBJ article shortly before the assassination, the kind of thing anyone with an antenna as long as LBJ's would view as proof of a deadly threat. Furthermore, Bobby and LBJ bitterly hated each other, with Bobby being the one who had influence with JFK, not LBJ. LBJ would have been a complete fool not to hear the ever closer footsteps. Thus, the "Final Solution to the JFK Problem" undoubtedly became LBJ's solution, with the further advantage that he and the MSM were able to frame and framed conservatives and Republicans for the assassination.

I remember when the History Channel aired that series “The Men Who Killed Kennedy”. It is also available on Netflix.
I remember that it caused a stir when it was first aired.

That show is full of laughable conspiracy theories. Among them is “Badgemam”. Some guys though they could make out a uniformed guy with a badge aiming a rifle in the patterns of leaves and shadows on the area of the grassy knoll. However, someone later showed that if the guy they saw was really there, he is way out of scale with all the people actually seen there.

My father had watched LBJ swearing in. I remember my father told me that by the look in vice president’s eyes that my father knew Johnson had something to do with JFK’s death.

Except he doesn’t look like that. He looks stunned and saddened. This is how conspiracy theories about the JFK assassination grow. Someone repeats something that someone told them; and most of the time, those “facts” are not true.

Johnson was a crook and one of the worst presidents ever. But, I do not think he had anything to do with JFK's death. The Kennedy family and their inner cliques did not like Johnson. They alienated Johnson so much that they all knew that once he became president on November 22, the Camelot bunch would be out of there. So it does not surprise me that an airhead like Jackie thought LBJ was in on it. The guy looks downright evil; and he probably had a difficult time hiding his dislike of the Kennedys.

I think I heard Robert Caro (an LBJ biographer) say that JFK hated

I agree, however using occams razor, the most reasonable explanation is that Oswald was not the shooter.
