LBJ as a Murderer and "Functional Psychopath"
By Robert Morrow
The first person to accuse Lyndon Johnson of murder was the sitting governor of Texas Allan Shivers who accused Lyndon Johnson of the 1952 prison murder of Sam Smithwick who was going to tell Coke Stevenson all about the Box 13 voting fraud in Jim Wells County that gave Lyndon Johnson the 1948 Texas Senate Democratic nomination. Forty-one years later in 1997 the first family of civil rights, the King family, went on national TV, ABC News, and accused Lyndon Johnson of murdering MLK. The New York Times covered this revelation the next day on June 20, 1997 in a story entitled Son of Dr. King Asserts LBJ role in Plot.
Author Roger Stone has detailed in his book The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ that Richard Nixon, Barry Goldwater and the KGB, then the world’s largest foreign intelligence service, all came to the ultimate conclusion that Lyndon Johnson had murdered John Kennedy. Jack Ruby, the man who murdered Oswald, made several statements indicting Lyndon Johnson in the JFK assassination, including saying that if Jack Kennedy had made Adlai Stevenson his vice president, then the JFK assassination would never have happened.
Likewise, Air Force Gen Joseph J. Cappucci, the man in charge of Air Force counterintelligence and someone who was very close to FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, also indicted Lyndon Johnson in the murder of John Kennedy. See my 2014 interview with Jan Amos. Hoover, of course, and LBJ were blood brothers.
Immediately post JFK assassination, Robert Kennedy suspected that Lyndon Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover may have played a role in it. RFK later focused his attention on the CIA and mafia as well.
Even Ben Barnes, who sits on the Board of Trustees of the LBJ Foundation, and who was Lyndon Johnson’s golden boy political son, has privately told a major lobbying client of his that Lyndon Johnson murdered John Kennedy.
The most important book ever written on Lyndon Johnson is Peter Hounam’s 2003 book Operation Cyanide which presents a compelling case that Lyndon Johnson was behind the USS Liberty murders which occurred on June 7, 1967. LBJ had ordered Israel to sink an American ship, murdering all 294 Americans on board, so it could be blame on Egypt and the United States would have a golden pretext, based on a nefarious false flag attack, to enter the Six Day War and bomb/take out Nasser of Egypt who over the course of the past ten years had drifted into the Soviet camp. That plan was foiled when to things happened: the USS Liberty miraculously did not sink and the Russians made some heated threats over the nuclear hotline “red phone” with LBJ.
The only way to explain Lyndon Johnson’s behavior during the Six Day War and at other times is that LBJ was a “functional psychopath” just as some folks are “functional alcoholics.” Except that when one is a lunatic, he or she is by definition dysfunctional and not just a little bit drunk. McGeorge Bundy later said that in his last days of working for LBJ, that Lyndon Johnson distinctly reminded him of Joseph Stalin. Bundy left the Johnson Administration in 1966, but he was called back into the Administration in 1967 to manage the US response to the Six Day War...
