The Death Of An Outrageous American Fraudster Raises A Tantalising Question... Was LBJ Behind Kennedy's Assassination?

Forget the Soviets, the CIA or the Mafia. Of all the extraordinary theories that have swirled around the 1963 assassination of President John F Kennedy, surely the most outrageous — and intriguing — is that he was killed on the orders of his own Vice President, Lyndon Baines Johnson.

As recently as 2003, a Gallup poll found that nearly 20 per cent of Americans believed that ‘LBJ’ had some hand in the assassination of the man he went on to succeed in the White House.

It is an astonishing claim to make of any U.S. President, but all the more startling given the peculiarly tragic circumstances of Kennedy’s murder.

The snapshot of Johnson being sworn in as President hours later on board Air Force One, with a stony-faced Jackie Kennedy by his side, must be one of the most emotive images in U.S. political history.

I do not believe this at all. There are many reasons people wanted Kennedy dead. Kennedy was for smaller government, reasons that live today; and keeping the power in private industry, and against big gov running everything. The Dems want control of everything, and freedom of the people is not an option.

This specualtion has been around since the killing. It is certainly a plausible theory. LBJ's goal was to be president and this was one good ole boy that had connections. I don't believe we will ever now the full truth of what actually took place.
