Was LBJ Mastermind Behind JFK Assassination?

I have often considered Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson as the architect behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The following article says that LBJ told his mistress Madeleine Duncan Brown that those SOB’s will never embarrass me again the night before the assassination.


It makes sense why LBJ was quick to have the Warren Commission Report say that the assassination was by a lone gunman. That is why Lee Harvey Oswald was silenced two days after the assassination by a bullet from the gun of Jack Ruby.

I don’t expect everyone to agree with me, that LBJ was involved in the assassination, but he sure had motive, which was that he would become the president, since he was first in line for the presidency.

We may never know the truth about what happened on that day in Dealey Plaza, but so far nobody has proved to me conclusively that Lee Harvey Oswald was acting on his own. He may have fired the fatal shots that killed JFK that day, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t part of a conspiracy to assassinate JFK.

2013 will be the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F.Kennedy, Hundreds of books have been written about the JFK assassination, which makes it difficult to sort out fact from fiction. The only thing we know for sure is that President Kennedy was shot down in cold blood on a Dallas street, but I still can’t believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted on his own.

  1. Brad, I agree. It is suspicious that Lee Harvey Oswald was able to get a job working in the school depository, just 38 days before the assassination, so he would have the perfect setup to assassinate JFK. His wife’s friend Ruth Paine reportedly assisted him in getting the job, but feel there is more to it than that.
