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.

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.

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?!

  • • Federal Reserve — JFK issued an executive order which re-established the Treasury’s power to print money.

    Below is what amounts to the original version of this Conspiracy Theory:

    Jim Marrs. (1989). Crossfire: the Plot that Killed Kennedy, NY: Carroll & Graf Publishers

    “Kennedy apparently reasoned that by returning to the Constitution, which states that only Congress shall coin and regulate money, the soaring national debt could be reduced by not paying interest to the bankers of the Federal Reserve System, who print paper money then loan it to the government at interest.” (I wonder where on earth he got the idea that JFK was thinking about this, for nowhere, absolutely nowhere in his writings, speeches or letters is this found)

    “He moved in this area on June 4, 1963, by signing Executive Order 11,110 which called for the issuance of $4,292,893,815 [4.3 trillion] in United States Notes through the U.S. treasury rather than the traditional Federal Reserve System. That same day, Kennedy signed a bill changing the backing of one- and two-dollar bills from silver to gold, adding strength to the weakened U.S. currency.”

    The Treasury was given absolutely no new powers in EO11110, it only allowed for the Secretary of the Treasury to issue Silver Certificates in the interim, without direct authorization of the President, between the time the order was issued and the time that Public Law 88-36, a bill he signed the same day as the EO, to actually take effect. Few people who adhere to this EO11110 myth never read either the actual order nor the ancillary documentation, such as the Economic Report of 1963 that JFK delivered to Congress in January of that year. If they did, then they would quickly realize that it is a complete falsehood that JFK was either attempting to issue United States Notes, which had already been in circulation since 1862 and were issued through 1966. The only United States Notes issued in 1963 were $5 Notes and a few $2 Notes, but they were already scheduled for issued based on the Act of 1878, which required that the Treasury kept approximately $325 Million in circulation.

    What EO actually did is allow, for the first time the Federal Reserve to issue Federal Reserve Notes in small denominations of $1 Bills, it called for the replacement of $1 and $2 Silver Certificates, thus it didn’t restrict the FED, only empowered it to issue Notes. Public Law 88-36 set the stage for the final removal of all silver from circulation in this country, by early 1964, the Treasury stopped the redemption of Silver Certificates for silver and then later LBJ signed the Coinage Act of 1965. But all of that was at the instigation of JFK.

    On November 28, 1961, President Kennedy halted sales of silver by the Treasury Department. Increasing demand of silver as an industrial metal had led to an increase in the market price of silver above the United States government’s fixed price. This led to a decline in the government’s excess silver reserves by over 80% during 1961. President Kennedy also called upon Congress to phase out silver certificates in favor of Federal Reserve notes.

    President Kennedy repeated his calls for Congress to act on several occasions, including his 1963 Economic Report, where he wrote:

    I again urge a revision in our silver policy to reflect the status of silver as a metal for which there is an expanding industrial demand. Except for its use in coins, silver serves no useful monetary function.

    In 1961, at my direction, sales of silver were suspended by the Secretary of the Treasury. As further steps, I recommend repeal of those Acts that oblige the Treasury to support the price of silver; and repeal of the special 50-percent tax on transfers of interest in silver and authorization for the Federal Reserve System to issue notes in denominations of $1, **

    Public Law 88-36

    The House of Representatives took up the President’s request early in 1963, and passed HR 5389 on April 10, 1963, by a vote of 251 to 122. The Senate passed the bill on May 23, by a vote of 68 to 10.

    Text of Executive Order

    President Kennedy’s Executive Order (E.O.) 11110 modified the pre-existing Executive Order 10289 issued by U.S. President Harry S. Truman in 1951, and stated the following:

    “The Secretary of the Treasury is hereby designated and empowered to perform the following-described functions of the President without the approval, ratification, or other action of the President…”

    The order then lists tasks (a) through (h) which the Secretary may now do without instruction from the President. None of the powers assigned to the Treasury in E.O. 10289 relate to money or to monetary policy. Kennedy’s E.O. 11110 then instructs that:

    SECTION 1. Executive Order No. 10289 of September 9, 1951, as amended, is hereby further amended (a) By adding at the end of paragraph 1 thereof the following subparagraph (j):

    ‘(j) The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821(b)), to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of an outstanding silver certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their redemption,’ and (b) By revoking subparagraphs (b) and (c) of paragraph 2 thereof.

    SECTION 2. The amendments made by this Order shall not affect any act done, or any right accruing or accrued or any suit or proceeding had or commenced in any civil or criminal cause prior to the date of this Order but all such liabilities shall continue and may be enforced as if said amendments had not been made.

    John F. Kennedy,
    June 4, 1963.

    Silver Certificates, like Gold Certificates were not simply Bank Notes, they were Warehouse Receipts for a certain amount of real Constitutional Money, i.e. silver. United States Notes and then Federal Reserve Notes were not, in fact on United States Notes it clearly states that Bonds have been deposited to cover that Note, the very same thing as a Federal Reserve Note. Silver Certificates and Gold Certificates were, besides silver coins, were the last vestiges of what remained of real money in this country and JFK sought to remove silver just like FDR did gold. In a way JFK set the stage for the confiscation of the People’s silver just as FDR did with the Peoples gold.

    This myth, that is highly propagated and popular, should raise several red flags just from the evidence available online, but it continues to linger on and on in the popular conspiratorial mind.
