A few words regarding what this site is all about, beginning with a quotation that defines the essence of LBJ’s character:

“I worked quite some time for Lyndon B. Johnson as broadcast

personnel, and I think I learned more about the art of deception

from him than I did from my father [a magician known as

“The Great Blackstone”] . . . LBJ was a man who understood

the art of misdirectionof making the eye watch ‘A’

when the dirty work was going on at ‘B.’”

                                         ~ Harry Blackstone Jr.

That characteristic of Lyndon Johnson is arguably the single strongest element of his persona that is least understood by those who have not studied him closely. It stands above all others – his egomania, his documented bi-polar disorder, his paranoia and incurable narcissistic / sociopathic personality – which, combined together, drove his mania to conduct criminal, even treasonous actions. But it was his ability to deceive others, tens of millions of them altogether, that put him beyond the reach of the law.  


For those who don’t understand what I’m about or why I have chosen to write four books about a president I have detested since at least 1962, allow me to explain that.  First, understand that it is not my nature to dwell on negativity; the opposite is true, I strive to remain positive, as do most people.  In fact, I consider myself as the bearer of torches, lighting the darkness left in the wake of the 36th POTUS.

The darkness was put into the corrupted historical record of Lyndon Johnson’s reign as President by a succession of many other authors who took the opposite tack as they intentionally hid his intrinsic criminality. The original “biographers” (whom I have called out within those books) he recruited rewrote actual history by either ignoring the worst of his deceits or reframing that which could not easily be swept under the rug or into the dustbin of history.  In so doing, they have replaced historic facts with mythologically fabricated lies.  My humble intent is merely to point out these instances, prove the deceits as best I can, and shine the spotlight into the dark recesses to rediscover nearly forgotten truths.

It is an unfortunate predicament that we must all face, or ignore at our peril, but the continued beatification of the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson — honoring a very dishonorable man as though it will somehow absolve him of his criminality — is to deny the existence of a cancer upon the nation that will eventually destroy it.   His political progeny, which continue to multiply, repeat his manipulative methods and criminal conduct in their efforts to reinforce the hiding of his deceits, criminal acts and cover-ups, have succeeded in extending the reign of terror he brought forth well into the new millennium.

Consider how other nations have acknowledged the pernicious tyrants who caused so much destruction in their own histories:  For example, Russia has cleansed the worst of its past by renaming Stalingrad as Volgograd  and Leningrad as St. Petersburg;  Germany, so relieved by Hitler’s death (or his fleeing to South America), that his name became so reviled by the vast majority of its population that no monuments were ever dedicated to his memory and his book Mein Kampf became verboten and, for decades, practically disappeared from existence.  Compare that to the number of parks, expressways, buildings, schools (and soon, a new Navy warship) named after Lyndon B. Johnson, who shared many of the worst traits of the most infamous dictators in world history.

History is written by the victors.

History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.”

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of these acts will be written the history of this generation.
