JFK, LBJ and The Wink

Lyndon Baines Johnson "Had an almost maniacal urge to become president, he regarded JFK as an obstacle to achieving that."

Lyndon Johnson's mistress Madeleine Duncan Brown, on LBJ telling her on the day before JFK's assassination "after tomorrow those SOB's will never embarrass me again - that's no threat - that's a promise."

‘LBJ and Gov. John Connally micro-managed Dalla JFK’s schedule and demanded the route thru Dealy Plaza where the motorcade came to a full stop and LBJ had JFK killed,’ [Daily Mail]

"Back and to the left."

"...those who were aware of what happened ... ran toward the grassy knoll in many films ... we see witnesses paying attention to the knoll. No-one is paying attention to the sixth floor of the Texas Schoolbook Depository..."

Grassy knoll witnesses - evidence of shots from the front.

'They shot his head off.' [Jackie Kennedy] said, 'Oh, Jack, what have they done?' [Yahoo News]

I looked at her. Mrs. Kennedy's dress was stained with blood. One leg was almost entirely covered with it and her right glove was caked, it was caked with blood - her husband's blood. Somehow that was the one of the most poignant sights - that immaculate woman, exquisitely dressed, and caked in blood. I asked her if I couldn't get someone in to help her change and she said, "Oh, no. Perhaps later I'll ask Mary Gallagher but not right now." And then with almost an element of fierceness - if a person that gentle, that dignified, can be said to have such a quality - she said, "I want them to see what they have done to Jack." [PBS]

Robert F. Kennedy to Lyndon Johnson: “Why did you have my brother killed?”

The House Assassinations Committee may have been right after all: There was a shot from the grassy knoll. That was the key finding of the congressional investigation that concluded 22 years ago that President John F. Kennedy's murder in Dallas in 1963 was "probably . . . the result of a conspiracy." A shot from the grassy knoll meant that two gunmen must have fired at the president within a split-second sequence. Lee Harvey Oswald, accused of firing three shots at Kennedy from a perch at the Texas School Book Depository, could not have been in two places at once. [Washington Post]

Nixon: "LBJ, he never likes to be number 2."

The History Channel, in 2003, was forced by political pressure and by threat of legal action to stop airing the remarkably popular seventh, eighth, and ninth episodes of the series The Men Who Killed Kennedy: “The Smoking Guns,” “The Love Affair,” and “The Guilty Men.” Not only did The History Channel agree to stop broadcasting the three episodes (which were getting very high ratings), but it also pulled all of the DVDs from stores (where they were selling like hotcakes)...
