“Why Lyndon Johnson, a truly awful man, is my political hero”

I am very sorry to read that from anyone.

I know Johnson well, having read several major biographies and the material touching him in other biographies and histories.

He was, without question, the most evil man ever in the Oval Office, and that really is saying something.

The most destructive, without question.

Johnson started a gigantic and completely unnecessary war using cheap tricks. It would eventually kill something on the order of 3,000,000 Vietnamese and leave that land a horror zone of landmines and Agent Orange, things which are still killing.

Of course, the Vietnam War was also responsible for creating the conditions which led to the “Killing Fields” in Cambodia. That country’s neutral government was toppled owing to all the American bombing and incursions. Another 1,000,000 died.

Johnson also has a documented history of election fraud. Robert Caro documented fraud in his very first election in Texas. He worked with a very dirty bunch of people. And of course, there was more fraud in the 1960 Presidential election. Johnson and his boys delivered Texas for Kennedy.

Johnson was a king-sized crook with piles of dirty dealings with the likes of Billie Sol Estes and Bobby Baker, dealings which without Kennedy’s assassination would have ended his career and shortly. Johnson’s truly filthy associates included a man by the name of Malcom “Mac” Wallace, a convicted murderer and a dangerously violent man suspected of a number of paid killings.

Wallace is thought to have killed one of Johnson’s early political opponents, an honest man who wouldn’t bend. Most interestingly, a fingerprint of Wallace’s was found on a carton in the Texas Book Depository. That fingerprint was absolutely identified by a world-class expert, but it has never been explained in the official version of events.

If not part of the actual plot, Johnson was at least complicit in the assassination. Kennedy’s death literally changed his whole fortunes and outlook. Indeed, the Russian intelligence people secretly concluded that he was part of the plot.

Johnson’s character I think is best exemplified by his quickie swearing-in ceremony aboard Air Force One in Dallas. It was completely unnecessary, but he insisted. We’ve all seen the news photo. There is Mrs. Kennedy, still wearing her blood-stained suit standing near Johnson for the photo.

He was both using her as a publicity gimmick and, I very much believe, subjecting her and her family to a degradation ceremony. He truly loathed the Kennedys for the way he had been treated as Vice President, shuffled aside with duties of zero importance. Witnesses to his private conversations testify that his hatred was intense.

Johnson also had the distinction of some kind of still-secret complicity with Israel in its 1967 War and the ferocious effort to sink the USS Liberty. There is no other explanation for this man’s mild reaction – and Johnson had a legendary temper – to Israel’s deliberate and serious act of war. So, he willingly saw about forty American servicemen killed in some dark scheme we still do not understand. Indeed, the belief of a number of analysts is that Mossad had knowledge of Johnson’s complicity in the assassination, and that knowledge is what shut him up.

I have no idea as to just why Johnson engaged in both civil rights reform and “a war on poverty.” I suspect a very guilty conscience in part and in equal part a lust for some political immortality. Whatever the reason, not only was the war on poverty a failure, but a good deed or two can never compensate for what this truly evil man did in total.
