“Selma” Tells The Truth About LBJ The Segregationist

Hollywood often gets history wrong and, thus, adds to the confusion and misperceptions of an American populace already ignorant of their own history. But Selma, thankfully, is an exception. The film about civil rights movement of the 1960s protrays Lyndon Johnson as a major impediment to African Americans obtaining equality prior to his ascension to the Presidency on November 22,1963.

In fact, it can be reasonably argued that Johnson, more than any other person in the country, was responsible for maintaining the Jim Crow system in the South prior to 1964. As Senate majority leader, Johnson was the most powerful Democrat in Washington in the 1950s, and he regularly stripped any and all civil rights bills of their “legal teeth” when they came up for votes in Congress.

Phillip Nelson, author of “LBJ: From Mastermind To Colossus,” writes, “On at least twelve occasions during his time in Congress (1937-1960) he voted against acts that would have prohibited the use of literacy tests and poll taxes, the devices that had been designed for the very purpose of prohibiting blacks from voting. His history on this issue was such a sore subject by the time he became president that he took actions to hide it, by attempting to keep certain records of his public speeches ‘off the record.’”

Selma, though, stops short of accusing Johnson of being involved in the assassinations of the 1960s, but we now know that his suspicious behavior and nefarious connections surrounding the events of Dallas, Memphis and Los Angeles all but insure that he had prior knowledge of these political murders and worked hard to block any real investigations after the fact.

Any serious and honest examination of LBJ’s career reveals a long history of corruption, backstabbing, theft, and murder connected to his rise to power. In 1984 Billie Sol Estes, one of LBJ’s long-time bagman for payoffs and kickbacks, had his attorney file the letter below as a legal affidavit for prosecutors:

August 9, 1984

Mr. Stephen S. Trott
Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division
U.S. Department of Justice
Washington, D. C. 20530

RE: Mr. Billie Sol Estes

Dear Mr. Trott:

My client, Mr. Estes, has authorized me to make this reply to your letter of May 29, 1984. Mr. Estes was a member of a four-member group, headed by Lyndon Johnson, which committed criminal acts in Texas in the 1960’s. The other two, besides Mr. Estes and LBJ, were Cliff Carter and Mac Wallace. Mr. Estes is willing to disclose his knowledge concerning the following criminal offenses:

I. Murders

1. The killing of Henry Marshall
2. The killing of George Krutilek
3. The killing of Ike Rogers and his secretary
4. The killing of Harold Orr
5. The killing of Coleman Wade
6. The killing of Josefa Johnson
7. The killing of John Kinser
8. The killing of President J. F. Kennedy.

Mr. Estes is willing to testify that LBJ ordered these killings, and that he transmitted his orders through Cliff Carter to Mac Wallace, who executed the murders. In the cases of murders nos. 1-7, Mr. Estes’ knowledge of the precise details concerning the way the murders were executed stems from conversations he had shortly after each event with Cliff Carter and Mac Wallace.

This letter is never mentioned by mainstream LBJ historians like Robert Caro, who incredibly turn a blind eye to the worst of LBJ’s misdeeds. They are aided, of course, by the establishment media who are deeply invested in the myth of LBJ and the lone gunman lie in the murder of JFK.

Back to Selma though…it is a worthy film that dares to tell the truth about an important time in American history. Nelson sums up its treatment of LBJ this way:

“Selma shows the LBJ persona and his complete history, as he and it was, at first as the leading impediment to civil rights reform, then, on becoming president, his 180 degree flip-flop to become its leading proponent. In 1964-65, the arcs of the two of them coincided, but after that their orbits shifted again, and took completely different directions by 1966-67. Johnson’s dogged pursuit of a faraway, completely staged and unnecessary war, for which he exploited the patriotism of credulous young men — a war fought essentially for his own personal, political and pecuniary gain, in his deluded mind — caused a fundamental split between these men that festered until MLK’s assassination on April 4, 1968. Nearly thirty years later The New York Times, on June 20, 1997, reported that Dexter Scott King, MLK’s son speaking for the King family, announced their finding that LBJ and the FBI were behind the assassination, which was carried out by the military and intelligence apparatus of the United States government.”

Another Historically Ignorant Author Spews Lies

Beware truth seekers, there is yet another deluded JFK author out there.  This one is someone named James L. Swanson, and his book is called “End of Days.” (It would be more aptly titled “Endless Daze,” because it stumbles and bumbles its way from untruth to untruth like an unrepentant drunk trying to convince his wife that the lipstick on his collar is tomato juice.) Even worse, Swanson, like Bill O’Reilly, has begun his own “assassination franchise.”  His previous work was about the manhunt for Lincoln’s killer.  Let’s hope his next book is “Killing Swanson.”
 

The lone nutters, like children who believe in the tooth fairy, take the original myths spun by the Warren Commission and embellish them as if they are somehow uncovering some new Oswald-damning information.  It is the equivalent of a 5-year-old telling mommy that “…not only did the tooth fairy leave me a quarter, but he also talked to me and patted me on the head good-night.” (These morons generally aren’t even old enough to remember the assassination and, having been raised in the age of Reagan conservatism, mostly hate Kennedy anyway.)  Swanson is no exception.  In an interview with The Oregonian, Swanson snivels, “One of the most common misconceptions is that Dallas was a conservative or ‘right wing’ city of hate that killed President Kennedy. That’s absurd. Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist, not a conservative. And he spent more time living in the Soviet Union than he ever did in Dallas. Jackie Kennedy described him as a “silly little communist.” Another misconception is that people fail to remember how strong the evidence against Oswald really is.”
Yes, Dallas was a liberal bastion in 1963; no matter that city leaders printed “Wanted for Treason” posters with JFK’s picture on them and freely handed them out the day he was killed.  Oilmen like H.L. Hunt and Clint Murchison, who ran Dallas, hated Kennedy and vowed to “shoot him out of office.”  Dallas was more right-wing insane and hateful than any city in America.  Daily radio broadcasts, sponsored by Hunt and listened to by most Dallasites, spewed right-wing hate at JFK constantly.  And Newspaper publisher Ted Dealey ran an endless stream of negative stories about the President.
As for Oswald, there is no hard evidence against him.  A paraffin test proved he did not fire a rifle that day.  He was spotted in the second-floor lunch room of the Texas School Book Depository at the time of the shooting.  And someone else’s fingerprints were found near the murder weapon: Mac Wallace’s, LBJ’s personal hit man.  Oswald was sent by the CIA to the Soviet Union to pose as a fake defector.  This clandestine twist apparently is too spy-crafty for Swanson’s little brain.  Imagine if he did any real investigation and found that Oswald’s best friends in Dallas–George DeMohrenschildt and Ruth Paine–were CIA.  Swanson’s tiny cerebral cavity would explode…just like JFK’s head did when he was shot from the grassy knoll.
Just like anti-abolitionists a century ago, Oswald-did-it historians will be ridiculed and dismissed as charlatans 100 years from now.  Future man will ask, “How did pseudo-experts like Swanson get away with their inane fairy tales.  Why weren’t they challenged by investigative journalists?”  Alas, investigative journalism died in the 20th century.  As ex-CIA Director William Colby put it, “The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media.” 

JFK Conspiracy Fact #2: So Who Actually Pulled The Trigger? Here Are The Likely Suspects

 

 
It is my contention that each of the groups or individuals who wanted Kennedy dead had to provide their own assassin, in order that there would be mutually assured involvement, culpability and deniability.  In other words, no group or individual could rat out the other because each of them had the goods on the other.  They were all equally guilty, and this ensured mutual silence. Thus, LBJ, rogue CIA, Texas oilmen, the Joint Chiefs, and the Mafia (all deadly JFK enemies) hired their own gunmen for Dallas.  This is not just speculation on my part; there is hard evidence of assassins linked to each of the Kennedy-haters in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963.  Let’s start with Malcolm Wallace, LBJ’s personal killer.
Wallace’s fingerprints were found on a box in the Texas School Book Depository on the day of the assassination.  There is no innocent explanation for this.  For decades, Wallace had been accused, and once convicted, of doing LBJ’s dirty work.  On October 22, 1951, Wallace shot and killed John Kinser, a man who was having an affair with Josepha Johnson, Lyndon Johnson’s sister.  Kinser was reportedly blackmailing LBJ, and LBJ ordered him hit.  Wallace was convicted of murder, but inexplicably the judge gave him just a five-year suspended sentence.  Some say LBJ pressured the judge into the light sentence.
Wallace went on to kill several LBJ enemies.  After the Kennedy assassination, Wallace went to work for Ling-Temco-Vought, a Vietnam defense contractor owned by D.H. Byrd who also owned the Texas School Book Depository where Wallace’s print was lifted on November 22, 1963.  Byrd was a close friend and financial supporter of LBJ.  They were photographed together at University of Texas football games.
Then there’s CIA/OAS hitman Jean Souetre, who also had links to the Mafia and the international “French Connection” drug trade.  Souetre, using one of his aliases—Micheal Roux—entered the U.S. on November 19, 1963, through New York, from where he traveled to Fort Worth.  From there he followed JFK to Dallas on the morning of November 22.  After the assassination, Souetre was expelled from the U.S.
The source for much of the information about Souetre was an Army code breaker name Eugene Dinkin.  Dinkin deciphered cable traffic prior to Kennedy’s killing which stated that a known assassin named Jean Souetre would be in Dallas on November 22.  Dinkin was taken into custody and hospitalized in a closed psychiatric ward where he was held for four months.  Apparently the Army did not like what he had to say, and it was trying to shut him up.  The cables he decoded were in the hands of the CIA before the assassination.
There is evidence to indicate that Souetre met with E. Howard Hunt in the spring of 1963 in Madrid.  Madrid, at the time under the rule of fascist dictator Franco, was a hotbed of ultra right-wing activity.  Ostensibly the CIA’s Hunt was recruiting Souetre for the hit on JFK.  Later that spring Souetre came to the U.S. to visit General Edwin Walker just before Walker was shot at, supposedly by Lee Harvey Oswald.
Eugene Hale Brading, also known as Jim Braden, was arrested in Dealey Plaza shortly after the shooting of the president.  But he was released a short time later.  The day before the assassination he visited the offices of Dallas oilman Haroldson Lafayette Hunt, a fanatical right-winger and an avowed Kennedy hater.  Brading/Braden admitted to being in the Dal-Tex building on the same floor where Hunt Oil kept an office.  The office was vacant at the time, and its west window looked out over the parade route.  It was perfect vantage point from which a killer could have shot at JFK as the motorcade turned down Elm Street.
Another man who was arrested by police, and then mysteriously released on November 22, was an Air Force sharpshooter named Jack Lawrence.  Lawrence worked at a car dealership in Dallas for a short time before the assassination.  In his book Crossfire author Jim Marrs writes, “Lawrence had obtained a job as a car salesman at the dealership…with job references from New Orleans that were later discovered to be phony.  Lawrence never sold a car and on the day before the assassination, he had borrowed one the firm’s cars, after telling his boss he had ‘a heavy date.’ On Friday, November 22, Lawrence failed to show up for work.  However, about 30 minutes after the assassination, he came hustling through the company’s showroom, pale and sweating with mud on his clothes.”  For some reason Lawrence had left the company car behind and had to get a ride back to the site where he had left it—in the parking lot behind the picket fence atop the grassy knoll at the west end of Dealey Plaza.  The very spot from which assassination eyewitnesses heard and saw shots fired and smoke drift out from under some trees.  Lawrence may have been Curtis LeMay’s hired hit man, though no evidence directly links him to the Air Force chief of staff.
Jack Ruby had long-standing and indisputable ties with the Mafia.  He also once worked on the staff of Richard Nixon.  When Ruby shot Oswald on November 24, Nixon, watching it on TV, reportedly said, “Hey, I know that man.”  On the day before the assassination, he was in the Hunt Oil building at about the same time that Eugene Hale Brading was.
The one guy who shot no one was the fall guy Lee Harvey Oswald.  At the time of the assassination he was seen calmly sipping a Coke in the Texas School Book Depository’s 2nd-floor lunchroom.

JFK Conspiracy Fact #20: Circumstantial Evidence Implicates LBJ

The man who ostensibly gained the most from the assassination of President Kennedy was also the man who was in a position to appoint an investigative body (the Warren Commission) which could cover up the crime. With JFK out of the way, LBJ was able to attain the one thing he had lusted for all his life—the Presidency of the United States.

His first official act upon taking office was to reverse Kennedy’s NSAM 263 ordering full U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam. But there were many other secret actions he took to cover up the truth of his predecessor’s murder. He squirreled away Transcript 1327-C under presidential seal. This was the transcript of the Parkland doctors’ press conference on November 22, 1963; in it were Dr. Malcolm Perry’s words, “There was an entrance wound in the neck…the wound appeared to be an entrance wound in the front of the throat.

From pp. 296-297 of Crossfire by Jim Marrs, “Within 72 hours of Kennedy’s death—at Johnson’s order—the presidential limousine SX-100, which carried Kennedy through Dallas, was shipped to Detroit where the body was replaced and the interior completely refurbished. In any other case, this would have been destruction of evidence, since bullet marks on the windshield and blood traces could have provided essential clues as to the number and direction of shots.”

LBJ also employed a ruse to keep the presidential plane in Dallas longer than necessary after JFK’s murder. Jackie Kennedy explained to her brother-in-law Bobby Kennedy that LBJ had asserted it was Bobby who wanted LBJ to take the oath of office before taking off for Washington. Bobby Kennedy told Jackie that he had made no such suggestion to LBJ.

Mac Wallace, a convicted killer and a close associate of LBJ, had his fingerprints lifted from one of the boxes near the sniper’s nest in the Texas School Book Depository building. Wallace has long been suspected of being LBJ’s own personal hit man. Evidence of this comes from Billy Sol Estes, LBJ’s long-time bagman and bribe collector. Estes’ attorney wrote the following letter to the Justice Department in 1984:

Mr. Stephen S. Trott
Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division
