Many say that "LBJ would kill to be President." He already had several people killed before 1960, shot by marksman Malcolm Wallace, who JFK had enabled to get free from the murder of John Kinser, Henry Marshall, and possibly more. LBJ sought the Vice Presidency, a ceremonial position of less power with the blackmailing help of FBI Chief Edgar G. Hoover, only because he was now just a bullet away from being President.
Lyndon Baynes Johnson was a political rival of John F. Kennedy. Kennedy appointed him his running mate ostensibly to "unify the Democratic Party".
But LBJ became VP under threat of exposing Kennedy's lady friends by LBJ with the help of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.
JFK and RFK debated what to do for hours, according to his secretary Mrs. Lincoln. It was the wrong decision, to appoint an enemy as a possible successor. LBJ took the opportunity and had JFK killed to become President.
On the night before November 22, 1963 LBJ told his mistress:
"Those SOB's will never embarrass me again. That's not a threat. That's a promise."
LBJ often referred to the Kennedy's as the "Irish Mafia"
Johnson appointed the Warren Commission to investigate who he had killed.
The day after Kennedy's burial Johnson issued Executive Order 273 reversing Kennedy's Order 263 to pull out of Vietnam thus beginning the War in Vietnam and giving the military industrial complex what it wanted billions in defense spending on a long, unwinnable war.
Congressman Albert Thomas winks at LBJ as if to say "we won!". LBJ insisted that Jackie Kennedy be photographed by his side with Lady Bird as he was sworn in as President on Air Force One. LBJ made sexual comments disrespectful to her and JFK, and referred to the Kennedy's as the "Irish Mafia".
President Johnson ordered the possessions of the late President John F. Kennedy out of the White House on the morning after the assassination.
Lyndon Johnson's mistress (Madeleine Brown), mother of his illegitimate son Steven, explained:
"Lyndon Johnson told me, because he was angry, that the Kennedy's would never embarrass him again. That is not a threat. That is a promise.
He hated them with a passion. They were stumbling blocks to him. He had always seeked the presidency of the United States and John Kennedy definitely had become a stumbling block to him."
Did Johnson have reason to believe that John F. Kennedy was going to be assassinated?
"Yes. The American people need to know what actually happened during those years."
LBJ knew who they were. "They were the oil people, and the CIA had caused the assassination."
From "JFK The Last Dissenting Witness":
LBJ started ducking down in his car 30 or 40 seconds before the first shots were fired. He ducked down before they turned on to Elm Street.
After Kennedy's plane landed, while he was shaking hands. Johnson gave him instructions, the parade route was being changed. It was going Main street, but to go to Houston, then on to Elm. On Main Street, JFK would have been out of range.
They put the police in the there would be no forward escorts.
Johnson was supposed to be in the car, right behind Kennedy's but they put an extra Secret Service car between them.
One of the first things that LBJ did when he got to Washington was to find out what the House Ways and Means Committee did that day. He was concerned that they were preparing to indict him, about kick backs in the agricultural programs.
Jenkins was going to testify against LBJ, so they slandered him.
Henry Marshall was going to testify against LBJ, and was found and "killed himself" - 5 times with a rifle.
Madeleine's colored nanny Dell Turner saw LBJ hugging. Madeleine said LBJ said "accidents don't happen.", and somehow disappeared. Mac Wallace reportedly killed her too.
LBJ "had no qualms about death. No matter what it took, he did it."
The mastermind behind the murder of JFK
Unknown to the general American public and never mentioned in history books is the fact that a Texas Grand Jury has officially indicted and found Lyndon Johnson guilty as a co-conspirator (from his association with Malcolm Wallace, Billie Sol Estes and Edward Clark) in the following nine (9) murders:
- The killing of Henry Marshall (the Agriculture Secretary)
- The killing of George Krutelnik (an FBI informant who worked for Estes)
- The killing of Ike Rogers and his secretary
- The killing of Harold Orr (an FBI informant who worked for Estes)
- The killing of Coleman Wade (an FBI informant who worked for Estes)
- The killing of Josefa Johnson (LBJ's own sister!)
- The killing of John Kinser (Josefa's boyfriend)
- The killing of President John Kennedy
