Book Review: The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ

In having completed my reading of Roger Stone’s 2013 Book The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ I expanded my vast knowledge of the murder case of John F. Kennedy rather substantially. And I say this knowing I am already an expert on the subject. I have read and watched so many of the Kennedy conspiracy books and tv documentaries and movies. I have visited Dealey Plaza and walked throughout the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository building. And I’ve written extensively on the subject including Here is why Oswald is Not the Shooter https://mschuettblahblahblah.com/…/here-is-why-oswald-is-n…/ and Oswald Did Not Shoot JFK https://mschuettblahblahblah.com/…/oswald-did-not-shoot-jfk/
Stone has been in the news a lot in the past year because of his connection to Donald Trump and the indictments he faces from the Mueller Investigation. He has been a Republican operative since the 1960s.
The book is well written, and really pulled me in. But it never closed the sale on me. I do believe Lynden Baines Johnson had knowledge and possibly involvement in the assassination of our President. But Stone didn’t prove it. He just made my unverified suspicions stronger.
According to Stone Johnson hated John and Robert Kennedy and the Kennedy brothers hated him. This is not news. But Stone gets deeper into Johnson’s history and character than I’ve ever read. He alleges that Johnson furthered his political career through 7 murders he orchestrated prior to becoming Vice-President. He strongly infers Johnson was corrupt and profited from the Vietnam War thanks to his close associations with Bell Helicopter and Brown and Root. This is also not news in having been claimed in Oliver Stone’s movie JFK thirty years ago.
Stone also does a good job of defending the alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald; who in my opinion is clearly not responsible for Kennedy’s death.
Stone names Malcolm Wallace as the shooter of Kennedy. But he loses credibility because he also alleges a second and possibly third shooter but never names them. Wallace died in 1971 in a car crash (suspicious) near Pittsburg, Texas.
Stone identifies a large number of persons with connections to the Kennedy assassination who died suspiciously near the time of the Warren Commission Report and 14 years later prior to testifying before the House Select Committee on Assassinations.
The book is a great read. If you have an interest in these things go pick it up at your local library, like I did. And while a good book, it’s not a conviction for the clearly diabolical, and power hungry LBJ.
Maybe someday all the files can be released (President Trump?!!!) and we’ll get some answers to this 56 year old crime.

Oswald Did Not Shoot JFK!

THE crime of the 20th Century was without a doubt the killing of this nation’s President in Dallas 50 years ago this year. John F. Kennedy was shot twice, once in the head, while riding through Dealey Plaza in that Texas city November 22, 1963. The first official government investigation of the shooting determined that former Marine Lee Harvey Oswald fired three shots from the corner sixth floor window of the Texas School Book Depository Building, hitting JFK with those two shots. They determined that Oswald acted alone; that there was no conspiracy. This remains the prevailing story of the government and history.

After walking all over Dealey Plaza and the sixth and seventh floor of the museum that now exists in the downtown Dallas building where Oswald was employed I’m here to tell you the story is a complete lie. A fabrication with no truth to it at all. And what’s most disturbing is how pervasive the lie is, how accepted it is, and how nobody of prominence has ever walked the simple steps I walked to determine, as I have, that Lee Harvey Oswald could not have done what the Warren Commission and other subsequent investigations claim he did. And my fear is that if it could happen once it could happen again; and probably already has.

The 50th Anniversary of the Crime of the (Last) Century will undoubtedly bring out much about this story and many conspiracy theories. We’ll hear about the Grassy Knoll and Oswald in New Orleans, the CIA, the Mafia, Fidel Castro and a few others I’ve forgotten about or don’t care to mention and give credence. I’ll offer a thought or two on what I think may have happened but ultimately I don’t know. I just know it didn’t happen as we’ve all been bush-whacked into believing.

The Zapruder film showing the murder of our 35th President gives all of us a definitive time frame in which we can see how long it took to fire the deadly shots. This first video shows the shooting with no commentary and in real-time (as best I can determine). It shows that the three shots were all fired in 6 seconds.

This is a higher quality version of the Zapruder film, slowed down and zoomed in.

As you probably know and can now see the final of three (supposedly) shots fired was the most accurate while also being the one in which the moving target was furthest away from the Texas School Book Depository. So we’re expected to believe that Oswald fired three shots from a manual bolt-action Mannlicher Carcano rifle in only 6 seconds, and the final furthest shot is the most accurate. A white “X” marks the spot in the street at Dealey Plaza where the fatal head shot occurred. It’s 265 feet, or 81 yards, from the window.

As unlikely or improbable as this scenario is, it’s not the basis for my utter disbelief in the Warren Commission’s claim that Oswald shot Kennedy from the 6th Floor of the Texas School Book Depository. No, my firm belief was solidified in concrete when I walked throughout the museum now occupying the 6th floor, and looked out the adjacent window as well as the upstairs (7th floor) window closest to the alleged sniper’s nest. My certainty comes not from an unlikelihood that Oswald could do the shooting, but from the impossibility of the timing involved in what happened after the shooting. My certainty is so much easier to explain and comprehend. And I’ll do it in my next blog.
