I’ve been following this JFK assassination from day one. And I like many Americans my responses evolved from shocked, to relieved (when they found the “assassin”), to shocked and relieved (when they killed the “assassin”), to dismayed when the Warren Report was issued, to outraged when the mysterious deaths of witnesses occurred, and when the lies and deceptions began to gather like flies on a corpse.
But, I always ignored the obvious:cui bono. Believing that LBJ was the chief conspirator was just too simple an explanation. Everyone knew he was obnoxious, kinky and hinky, but believing that he would kill his boss to assume the presidency seemed a stretch. Surely someone in the vast army of print, radio and television reporters would have investigated this possibility. And of course, considering the importance of the crime, our congressmen and senators would have checked this out. They did run a committee in 1978 which did determine a probable JFK conspiracy without mention of LBJ. But alas, no one in a position of power could find the bloody dots or connect them. Historically, LBJ was just a All-American rascal who crawled his way to the top, became a civil rights hero, enabled and inflamed that “silly Asian war”, and ultimately left office as sort of a tragic flawed and wounded man.
There were those who tried to expose LBJ: J. Evetts Haley 1964 book: A Texan Looks at Lyndon; Newcomb and Adams 1974 manuscript: Murder from Within; and more recently Mark North’s: Betrayal in Dallas; Phil Nelson’s: LBJ. The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination. All these books are credible and well written, but again, there was no reaction from the news media or congress.
Now Roger Stone, a Washington insider, comes to the forum with his book: The Man Who Killed Kennedy. Based on his radio interviews, I can say that Stone is not a JFK supporter. But he appears to be a person who is willing to hold up the American military/industrial/political/media complex to the light and give the common man a whiff of its smelly, rotten underbelly. To sum it up: LBJ was an egotistic maniac who murdered anyone who got in his way to the presidency. LBJ was one of the biggest crooks who ever set foot in Washington. LBJ was a big, ugly snake and a leader in a generation of vipers. If JFK had lived a couple of additional days, LBJ would have been exposed to the nation, via a LIFE magazine story scheduled for print, as a big crook. He would have been indicted, tried, convicted, and sent to prison. But everything changed on 11/22/63. JFK was dead and instantly the world forgot about the new president’s sins. The media buried their heads and made soothing mockingbird sounds of relief. It was all over. The world is safe for democracy. Back to business. Move along there’s nothing to see here. And so it went over 50 years.
Now Stone’s book appears to be having some impact on the general population, possibly due to his tireless and sturdy promotional efforts, and to the fine quality of this book, and because he appears to be an insider “in the know”. Buy the book, it will either reaffirm your cynical thoughts or change your naïve beliefs about LBJ. Stone’s information is timely, verifiable, and clear. The conclusion: a successful coup d’etat. The sad fact: everyone in power today appears to represent viewpoint of the original conspirators and they are continuing the nasty, evil work that started in November, 1963. Coup d’etat…C’est la vie.
The Japanese have their Pachinko machines and the USA has its APPS. Pachinko machines are similar to slot machines except they don’t pay off in money. The winners get steel balls that sometimes they can exchange for trinkets. In America, people play various APPs on their handhelds which pay off in electronic rewards allowing the user to keep playing the game. Whether Japanese Pachinko balls or American APP rewards, the activity is useless and additive. Playing the games permits the users to feel a sense of accomplishment and adventure while they blow off a few hours of their lives.
These are substitutes for meaningful work. They are more acceptable than simply listening to music and getting high on recreational drugs or alcohol, and appear somehow different and possibly more fashionable than watching inane television reality shows, repetitive sports events, formula-plot sex/violence movies, and fictional news stories. Drugs, alcohol, television, and APPS can be additive. Public discontent and debate about war/peace, red/blue, right-to-life/right-to-choose, dealing with terrorist threats/stamping on the Constitution, guns/no guns, legals/illegals, and conspiracy/no conspiracy capture the bleeding hearts and failing minds of the people.
This churning lifestyle is present and prevalent in the USA today, and these mind-numbing activities will continue to enslave the population in the future. Everyday more American jobs are shipped overseas or automated out of existence. What are people to do? Eventually, they will accept the rewards of the Government APP called “entitlements”. Real work is hard to find and the ever-growing dropout society is a dangerous and restless trend.
Politicians know they have nothing to offer but more of the same. They will provide their citizen-addicts their time-wasting “dope”, as did the Roman emperors with their bread and circuses: more wars, more violence, more sex, more junk food, legalized marijuana, and false-flag boogeymen of all shapes and sizes.
So grab your balls and play the game. Join the Japanese in a game of Pachinko. Apparently there is nothing more meaningful on our national agenda.
To save the USA, Emma and Ethan Callan-Wright, decide that a little known historical figure, Franklin Roosevelt, should be historically resuscitated, or as they put it…”X-oomed”. The Twins, twenty-one-year-old Emma and Ethan, and their friends are citizens of the 2032 American police state. They lead a comfortable, but extremely controlled life in a sleepy East Coast college town called Mystic Heights. Other than their excursions using the Time Travelle (a time machine invented by Dr. Currant), they have never ventured outside of their local environment. Their entire source of news and information is that provided by the National Television Network and the rumor-mill of friends, relatives and acquaintances. Trained by their criminologist father, they speak softly and keep their opinions close.
At age seventeen, they time-traveled to the year 1963 to save the life of JFK. They got a taste of the spirit of the former “Free” USA. Their trip confirmed their conclusion that there was more to life than obeying the dictates of MOM, as the national government is derisively called. They want to kick the butt of history and open new possibilities for everyone living in America 2032.
Franklin Roosevelt is their ticket to freedom—get him elected and maybe the future will improve.
It’s a simple idea. If it works…if they are successful…they hope for a sea change in the political landscape of the country. They hope the fat cats can be tamed by the powerful personality of FDR. They hope the people of the 1930s will sense and seize their opportunity. They hope that Roosevelt will stand up for the other 99%. This may be naive dreaming, but such dreams are common in climates of social repression. Unlike everyone else in 2032 America, the Time Travel Twins have the ability to turn their wild dreams into reality. But their work is dangerous, difficult and most of all experimental. Manipulating time and events is an art to be discovered through the process of trial, error and success. The challenges of reviving FDR and keeping him alive through 1932, 1933 and 1934 will tax the skills and strengths of Ethan, Emma, their friend Zak and the outrageous and mysterious Dr. Currant.
