L B Johnson: what do we really know?
Re: LBJ and the Jews
I HAVE read the link concerning the "relationship" which was sustained between the late President Lyndon Baynes Johnson, who assumed the Presidency subsequent to the events in Dallas in November 1963, and the state of Israel. If this is the sort of person whom the Israeli state sought to cultivate as a friend and protector, the Jewish state is a very immoral political entity, indeed.
Lyndon Johnson was a Freemason; his family, patrilineally, were one of the earliest Masonic "families" to homestead in Texas after the "dustup" between General Santa Anna and Sam Houston. Both of whom, by the way, were also members of "the craft."
Further to this matter, you may have been familiar with a page, which has been taken down within the past five years. It was put up by one Thomas W. Chittum; he of the work "Civil War II - The coming break up of America." I recall that his page once had an article or a link that asserted that Lyndon Johnson was a descendant of Marrano Jews.
And further; Lyndon Johnson "served" in the Second World War. But the extent and the nature of his service remain "contentious" to say the least. I recall that he applied to have a service medal awarded him. Upon the basis of his assertion that he had served an indeterminate number of days, weeks, or months in an area where operations against the Japanese were on going. It was subsequently asserted that he had never been anywhere close to the area in question; and, apparently, most of his National Service was spent, safely, in a "rear echelon" capacity.
Interestingly, Edward Jablonski, now deceased (I must presume), wrote what I still consider to be "the" narrative text with regard to the Boeing B - 17. The work is entitled simply, "Flying Fortress," and discusses the development of the aircraft, the structural transition from the rather awkward short vertical stabilizer to the deeply raked fin that defined this classic mid twentieth century aircraft.
There is also a number of pictures in the text. And, in one of them, one sees the rear configuration of an early series B-17, taken in 1942 in South East Asia somewhere. And in foreground are a number of personnel. And one of them is identified as Lyndon Baines Johnson, who was flying as a passenger aboard this aircraft. A copy of this text would probably be available in any good public library; or any college library.
I also read a very old copy of Life Magazine, which I found in an old farmhouse, in Southern Québec about 12 years ago. It was a "special edition" apparently, printed in the wake of the Kennedy assassination. In it, Johnson appears, again, and, again, in South East Asia. Talking to schoolchildren.
The captioned text states that Johnson had had a heart attack. But that he had made a "full recovery." I am not a physician. But two of my uncles were. And, as far as I am aware, one never ("never") makes a "full recovery" from a heart attack. The muscle tissue of the heart dies. And the operation of the heart is permanently impaired. Were the American people, or, at least, the readers of Life Magazine really that stupid in 1963?
