Mainstream Media Maintains The Lee Harvey Oswald Narrative

Almost everything we know about the assassination of John F. Kennedy has been planted in our minds over years of mainstream media (MSM) programming. Virtually every theory advanced has been either conjured up or promoted by those who control the MSM. Therefore, just like all the false leads which were published during November of 1963, much of this ‘official’ information is highly suspect.

However, as far as the much more expansive JFK assassination coverup is concerned, many of those accused parties had either a direct or indirect hand. No matter what the degree of participation, a conspiracy of silence is always the most deafening. And always the most successful over the long term.

MO of the JFK Assassination

The most obvious hallmark of the ‘execution’ of the assassination plot is that it was a classic CIA implementation plan. Whoever it was necessary to directly involve in the conspiracy to murder JFK was inserted into this extremely compartmentalized operation, and done so on a strictly need-to-know basis. This same modus operandi applies to the coverup as well.

Therefore, it can be stated with absolute certainty, that certain elements within the CIA, Secret Service, FBI and Dallas Police Department had to have had a direct hand in both the assassination plot and following coverup. Over the course of time, there were other law enforcement agencies which were drawn into the coverup phase by necessity. All law enforcement agencies are run according to military-style pyramidal hierarchies, so it was very easy for them to control the flow of information over the many intervening decades.

Lyndon B. Johnson had both the motive and the power.

There is no question that Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) had both the incentive and the position of power to ensure a relatively seamless operation. He also enjoyed the protection and influence of the southern good-ole-boy network. Both Big Oil and the Military-Industrial Complex money stood squarely behind him. So did the entire Texas political machine. After all, isn’t that why Dallas why chosen as the site of the very public execution. Simply put, LBJ and his many cronies had “the whole place wired” right down to Dealey Plaza and the Texas School Book Depository.

It was common knowledge at the time of John Kennedy’s election that LBJ was chosen as Vice President only because of his political prowess in Congress and his ability to deliver Texas. However, what is less well known is that the level of animosity between the Kennedy and Johnson camps was as intense as it was toxic with a capital “T”. The personal animosities likewise ran so deep that many wondered how the sentiments would play out in the day-to-day outworking of the Kennedy Administration.

Quite unfortunately, the disdain that each side had for each other fed the silent participation in the JFK assassination as much as it did the subsequent coverup. Which is exactly how this whole sordid scenario played out from beginning to end.  It is also how many other rogue elements were co-opted or associated with the assassination, whether there was any involvement or not.

JFK did have many enemies in high places, because of his plans for world peace.

For instance, the list of alleged conspirators includes everyone from Cuban exiles to Russin KGB agents, from Fidel Castro to Nikita Khrushchev.  Did these accused parties have an axe to grind with JFK, or were they purposely offered up to the MSM as red herrings?  Would either of them ever attempt an assassination of a sitting US president? Not very likely at all. However, just like these examples, there are many others who have been proposed as co-conspirators because of having been on the wrong side of the fence with the Kennedy brothers, both John and Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy.

When you examine the list below of the “disaffected” you quickly grasp how easy it would be for LBJ et al. to oversee a coverup with great ease by way of a conspiracy of enforced silence.

CIA — JFK fired Director Allen Dulles
• FBI — JFK was spied on by J. Edgar Hoover
• Chicago Mafia — JFK had a run in with Sam Giancana; RFK took on organized crime
• Roman Catholic Church — JFK refused to follow their ‘orders’
• Israel – JFK rebuffed David Ben Gurion’s request for nuclear weapons
• Federal Reserve — JFK issued an executive order which re-established the Treasury’s power to print money
• Military-Indusrtial Complex — JFK was intent on winding down the Viet Nam War
• Republican Party — They believed that JFK’s father stole the 1960 presidential election
• Secret Societies — JFK revealed their existence in a high profile speech

This list goes on, but what we have here is a group of extremely formidable foes of the Kennedy clan. Not only are ALL of them natural friends in the political world; in JFK they saw a common enemy. His policies were quite contrary to their shared desire and notion of the perpetual war economy. Consequently, there was but one solution.

lyndon-b-johnson-swornin

Cui bono?

Not only did all the aforementioned parties gain by the coup d’etat which abruptly removed Kennedy from power, so did many other silent powerbrokers and influence peddlers, financiers and bankers, industrialists and corporate magnates. All told, the political/economic bloc of players who would rather see JFK gone was so large and extensive that the conspiracy of silence really needed no enforcement. Who, after all, would want to leave the reservation knowing that they would never get back on it. That is, if they even lived to tell their story.

When the global power structure is so heavily weighted toward an outcome, there is no stopping it. Such was the case with JFK’s unseemly dismissal. Those in power at the time, who were sympathetic to the war economy cause, were enlisted to what ever degree appropriate depending on their official positions. In the case of LBJ, he controlled all the right assets to ensure an efficient and wrinkle-free coup d’etat. His contacts throughout Congress, the state of Texas, industry and commerce, as well as law enforcement guaranteed that he would get off scot-free. And so it appears that he did, until Nixon aide Roger Stone appeared on the scene.

Nixon aide Roger Stone’s claim: LBJ arranged the murder of JFK

There is perhaps no more damning and believable evidence of a personal LBJ motive than Stone’s quotes from the mouth of Richard Nixon.

“Stone said Nixon described the Warren Commission as “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated”, telling him: “The difference between LBJ and me was we both wanted to be president but I wouldn’t kill for it.”

Stone has also asserted that:

“Johnson, Stone claims, was facing media and Senate corruption investigations that threatened to end his career and land him in jail, which he avoided by becoming president. “The assassination cut him free from all of his previous sins.”

Clearly, LBJ had all the motivation in the world to eliminate his competition in the political marketplace. Doing things “Texas-style” was quite natural for him, as his behavior following the assassination boldly demonstrated. What has been observed is that not only LBJ, but there were many others who were operating completely without conscience, so intent were they to change the game of personal enrichment in their favor.

The man to the left in the bowtie is Congressman Albert Thomas, winking at LBJ

This analysis is not without other very serious backup. For instance, the father of George W. Bush’s press secretary Scott McClellan further exposed the truth about LBJ with an unprecedented and convincing perspective on the whole matter. As follows:

“The father of the White House press secretary claims in his upcoming book, “Blood, Money & Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K.,” that former President Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Barr McClellan, father of White House press secretary Scott McClellan and Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Mark McClellan, is preparing for a Sept. 30 release of a 480-page book by Hannover House that offers photographs, copies of letters, insider interviews and details of fingerprints as proof that Edward A. Clark, the powerful head of Johnson’s private and business legal team and a former ambassador to Australia, led the plan and cover-up for the 1963 assassination in Dallas.”[1]

In the same article the author is further quoted:

“[Johnson] had the motive, opportunity and means,” said McClellan, 63, who was a partner in an Austin law firm that served Johnson. The book, McClellan said in an exclusive interview at his Orange Grove home, is about “[Johnson's] role in the assassination. He was behind the assassination, how he was and how it all developed.”[1]

Then you have Phillip F. Nelson weighing in on the matter with an equally compelling account with his book “LBJ: The Mastermind of JFK’s Assassination“.

LBJ: The Mastermind of JFK’s Assassination by Phillip F. Nelson

“The premise of the book, and the term “Mastermind”, is that there had to have been one key person who was the single most important catalyst behind the JFK assassination who would have provided the “critical mass” required to bring all other elements together and held them together throughout the planning and execution of the 1963 coup d’etat. That person would have necessarily been someone who had the power to assure the others that they would succeed and be protected from discovery and prosecution afterwards; he would have to be someone who recruited and marshaled all the others and he would had to have influence across the federal government bureaucracy as well as the Texas state and local judicial and law enforcement agencies. Lyndon Johnson was uniquely positioned to fulfill all of these requirements and be able to provide the unifying “driving force” required to pull of “The Crime of the 20th Century.”[2]

In fact, LBJ’s long list of actions and inactions immediately before and following the assassination tell a story that has rarely been told before in the MSM.

“The day after Kennedy’s funeral, on November 26, 1963, Lyndon Johnson signed national security resolution no. 273, which completely reversed Kennedy’s plan for a withdrawal from Vietnam. Then Johnson fraudulently used the gulf of Tonkin resolution as a blank check to fund the massive military buildup in Vietnam, an agreement Johnson apparently made with the CIA in exchange for them taking out Kennedy, and handing the presidency to him.”[3]

There is much anecdotal evidence that has found its way into the public domain regarding LBJ’s involvement in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. So much has come to light that it is truly a wonder that the MSM has either actively suppressed it or ignored it altogether. Perhaps the following quote sums up what many were aware of at the time, but chose to ignore for their own safety and the protection of their families.

Madeleine Brown, Lyndon Johnson’s mistress and mother of his illegitimate son, Steven, made the following statements:

“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.”

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” ~ MLK

As Martin Luther King implies with these words of wisdom, justice will be always served in the end. In the final analysis, as this nation moves further away from the tragic events of November 22, 1963, a more objective and unjaundiced eye will be used to view them. As the great majority of individuals who were a part of the original plot pass on to other realms, it will be more difficult for those who continue to disseminate the false narrative to maintain the ‘official’ lie.

This article is just one more exposé which has unveiled, once and for all, the coup d’etat which occurred in broad daylight in Dallas, Texas in the fall of 1963. May these revelations contribute to a new atmosphere of full disclosure on the part of the US Government. The federal government is now viewed with unparalleled and deep distrust. Perhaps now is the time for it to come clean concerning so many government secrets and clandestine programs which do not serve the best interests of the American people.

Author’s Note:

Because of the degree of obfuscation perpetrated by the actual assassination plotters, it is impossible to say with absolute certainty who exactly did what, when and where.  The level of interference, which has been run incessantly for 50 years, is both intensely deliberate and misleading.  Therefore, the actual incriminating conduct on the part of LBJ with respect to the JFK execution is difficult to pin down.
However, the coverup is an altogether different matter.  Because of LBJ’s actions and inactions regarding the Warren Commission, it can be stated categorically that he directly participated in the coverup.  Whether this occurred due to his complicity, or because he was forced to support the coverup by TPTB, is known only by those few individuals at the very peak of the decision-making process.
Could LBJ have been set up to become an eventual fall guy as has now happened?  Yes!
Nevertheless, he chose at some point to fully participate in the coverup and never look back.  In either case, there is no question that his very life depended upon it.

Editor’s Note:

The following quote from Robert F. Kennedy may be the most
compelling evidence of all where it concerns the culpability of
LBJ in the eyes of the Kennedy family.

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


Special Note:

Here we are at the very end of an article on the assassination of John F. Kennedy and still no mention of the Lee Harvey Oswald, the officially named assassin by the US Government?!

  2. Allen Roberts says:

    "What follows is a list of ten reasons why JFK became the most targeted man in America in 1963.
    Each of these 10 explanations standing alone would be considered extremely life-threatening to any sitting president of the USA. And these are just the top ten; there are many other brave initiatives undertaken by JFK which pitted him directly against the TPTB (The Powers That Be).
    Therefore, the real question is how JFK managed to survive as long as he did."

    http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=1296

    Who killed JFK? And why did they do it?

    ^^^

  3. Truth says:

    It was a major cover up in those days.
    Today we have 9/11…….. inside job

  4. Bijou says:

    No doubt LBJ was involved, but American presidents have not run the country for some time now. In the article the writer names many at odds with JFK most have more power and money than LBJ. Looks like tptb are trying to slip by unnoticed once again

  5. schmenz says:

    The Catholic Church? I presume that inclusion was some sort of attempt at humor?

    The Catholic Church, first of all, doesn't issue "orders"; it provides guidance and offers the Sacraments. If you refuse their guidance or the Sacraments that is tragic, but it doesn't mean the Church will send out a hit squad against you.

    And the Americanist hierarchy, epitomized by the execrable Cardinal Cushing, was if anything one of the Kennedy's main worshippers. Anything the Kennedys wanted was duly granted by Cushing and his cronies, not Rome. Rome has repeatedly warned its clergy not to get too close to any national political party, another one of those examples of guidance that was ignored by some prelates.

    So, if your inclusion was intended as a joke please disregard this comment. If not, you have a lot of historical reading to catch up on.

    • Armchair Investigator says:

      schmenz, please read the following issue that JFK had with the Vatican.

      “(3) JFK was implementing plans to end the Viet Nam War. His failure to prosecute the war greatly irked the Roman Catholic Church, the war’s primary instigator. As the first Roman Catholic US president, he made it clear during his campaign that he would act with complete independence from Vatican influence and always govern as his conscience dictated. Terminating the Viet Nam War became JFK’s number one foreign policy agenda item, which put him at serious odds with the entire World Shadow Government.”

      http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=2757

      There was a HUGE feud with the Buddhist monks in Viet Nam that the Vatican exploited to foment war. The Catholic Church wanted to convert; the Buddhists wanted to be left alone.

      • schmenz says:

        My friend,

        In response to your reply I can only refer you to the last sentence of my original comment.

        It is kind of ironic, also, that you should mention that the Church wished to make converts among the Buddhists. Would that they did! Our liberal Church leaders of recent times have a horror of bringing anyone to Christ and that is the foundation of the problems that beset the Church right now. In any event, as the histories of the Catholic missionaries will show you, particularly that of Francis Xavier, the missionaries offered the Faith to the non-Christians. If they didn't accept it that was that; they didn't point any guns at anyone. Truths like this may not square with the Jack Chick types around but, as they say, the truth is the truth is the truth.

        Lastly if you think the Church goes on the stump for war and bloodshed, as you imply they did in Viet Nam, then may I respectfully suggest, again, that you try to acquaint yourself with the facts. Recently, I do not believe the current Pope's asking for a Day of Fasting and Prayer on September 7th to stop the USA from attacking Syria is an indication of papal warmongering.

        • John says:

          You talk of the Roman Catholic Church as if it's just a church, but it's not. It is the only church in the world which is also a government. This is why the Bible depicts it as a woman riding a beast. Women in the Bible represent churches, pure women are pure churches, whores are impure. A beast represents a kingdom or government. Babylon is another symbol for the RC church/gov't. In Paul's letter written from Rome, he greets people with a salutation and says he's writing from Babylon. This was prophetic. Babylon was the world's first global religion and global government. It was both religious and political like Rome. Daniel describes the beast which would "seek to change times and laws." Rome changed the Biblical Sabbath which was in existence from the beginning of time before there were any Jews, of Saturday to Sunday. They "changed times and laws." And many Protestants believe the mark of the beast can be proven from scripture to be the opposite of what God calls the seal of God–the Sabbath–is going to be a national and then global Sunday law. Catholicism is not true BIblical Christianity, otherwise the priests would not be called "Fathers," there would not be idol reverence, there would not be Mary reverence, saints reverence, the chatechism wouldn't have rewritten the 10 commandments, Saturday would be the sabbath not sunday, confession would be to god alone and not a priest. The Church has been heavily heavily influencing world affairs behind the scenes.Joh

    • guest says:

      It is you who needs to read up on history. Start with how the Roman empire became the roman church, and the emperor became the pope. You obviously don't read the Bible, or you would be aware of just what catholicism, an ancient pagan religion bent on ruling the whole world. The first four of the ten commandments in the Holy Bible should tell you that.

  6. Really? says:

    @ schmenz, The Cathlic church is far from innocent in anything…….you need to read your history at the churches crimes. " provides guidance and offers the Sacraments" along with harboring pedophiles, offering "salvation" in return for profit. Thre reformation did not come about for no reason. I was raised catholic but realized the religion is not so holy.

    • Jerry G says:

      Amongst the Church’s crimes it’s worth remembering that the Church harbored thousands of Nazis after the war and then aided them in their escape to South America and elsewhere. The Church’s approach has always been two sided so while they were aiding Nazis they were also supporting some of Hitler’s victims. So, on whose side was it really on?

  7. @DREGstudios says:

    JFK was a dangerous man. He who draws back the curtain to let the light of day upon a transparent government is a hero. Kennedy was murdered for standing up for an America against war profiteering and for the freedom of every individual person. I paid homage to him on the 50th anniversary of his passing today with a portrait of our country’s greatest President at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2013/11/in-dar

  8. magyud says:

    I'm taken aback that J.Edgar Hoover is not named among the suspects. Hoover was in Dallas the night of the 21st/22nd, at a party at oilman Clint Murchison's home… a party that went on until the wee hours.

    Nixon was also in Dallas, supposedly as a Pepsi attorney on Pepsi business. It seems possible to me that Nixon was touch with an implication of guilt that could be used against him at a later date.

    • Gordon says:

      The author addresses J. Edgar Hoover as follows:
      "• FBI — JFK was spied on by J. Edgar Hoover"

      Their linked article goes into more detail.
      http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=2757

      "(10) JFK had very serious and powerful enemies in the form of Lyndon B. Johnson, George H. W. Bush, Richard N. Nixon, J. Edgar Hoover, Allen Dulles, Dean Acheson, as well as the British Crown whose intentions were well known by his ambassador father, Joseph P. Kennedy. The entire global power structure, particularly the US Military-Industrial Complex, and its many secret societies and covert organizations, were vastly arrayed against him. The World Shadow Government was determined to make an [UNFORGETTABLE] example of him."

  9. Jed says:

    It’s never a great start when you begin an article by insulting the reader by implying they are brainless puppets of a propaganda machine. In fact, growing up over the last 40 years, the only viewpoint that has been most apparent in media is this conspiracy viewpoint. You almost never hear the actual evidence for Oswald acting alone. I have to say, when I took a break from the media assault of conspiracy thinking, and read the evidence, it was so much MORE convincing. I think it was Oswald. Just simple, tragic, sad, and unnecessary. I think people deal with the pain of that by imagining some other larger meaning, but it’s just not there. Conspiracy folks are just coping and using that device to deflect pain.

    • amalgam says:

      Didn't the Warren Commission conclude that Oswald acted alone? Didn't that run to many volumes? Otherwise why would anyone think Oswald acted alone. David Atlee Phillips, former station chief in Mexico City, to throw off suspicion from himself as mastermind, said that he "thought rogue CIA members were involved." Do you remember the investigation that followed? No you don't because there wasn't any. What did PT Barnum say?

  10. Mr.Lincoln says:

    I will speculate the powers behind Johnson's Great Society had 'JFK' taking out along with his brother for the advancement of SERFDOM for all.

    9/11 In A Nutshell
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrJiKbK0tVM&fe

  11. Mr.Lincoln says:

    "Absolute power corrupts absolutely" arose as part of a quotation by the expansively named and impressively hirsute John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Acton (1834–1902). The historian and moralist, who was otherwise known simply as Lord Acton, expressed this opinion in a letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton in 1887: "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men."

  12. amalgam says:

    You present the facts very clearly. The assassination is like the Greek play Oedipus Rex. Something is wrong and the king is in denial about what he did. Until America faces the reality of the coup d'etat which took place that day, things will never go right , they will only get worse. The people who did this made America weak and vulnerable and did more harm than anyone could have imagined.

    Your above web-site narrative is "on-target" and very good!!! I have researched this
    for over 40 years…There is no doubt, none-what-so-ever, that the "enterprise" that
    was planned, carried to fruition and covered-up, was a very well laid and crafted
    plan with a powerful agenda and with a lot of "muscle & weight",,,much influence,
    and corrupted and criminal links on many levels…part of the problem in attempting to portray or explain how such a plot could have succeeded lies to some degree
    in the story of history & politics themselves….look at the intricate design and planning of events just to name a few ,such as Pearl Harbor, An Operation Valkyrie, Operation Barbaroosa, Secret (state craft) negotiations e.g. like between The Nixon WH and Chinese leaders in 1971 and 1972 (which "post" shadowed what JFK would have done similarly with Castro) and Hitler & Salin in 1939…these are just a few examples of how poitics, secrecy and national security agendas are planned…and are as common as the earth, the wind and the air around us…the plot to kill JFK was no different…the "merging" and "morphing" of what appears varied interests is nothing more than forming some consensus where "the whole" is better than its "seperate parts" where & when a mutual fear or emeny is recognized and needs to be confronted or perceived interests or domains of "established enclaves" need to be protected e.g. "CIRCLING THE WAGONS"….
    The inter-connected, interdependent and overlapping interests involved in the murder of the President of The United States on 11/22/63, when viewed "seperately" and "broken-down" like an equation is like looking or viewing a
    prism from differnt angles or looking into a house from differnent windows or portals….it was a "quasi" or "pseudo" coup, with a distinct American "flair" and
    'style"….
