31. Who shot JFK [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... to research some of Wallace's career through Texas newspapers. Wallace, who died in a one car crash in 1971, had been convicted of murder in 1951 (5) and was suspected of the murder of others involved in the Billy Sol Estes scandal in Texas in 1960-62. Estes was a con-man who had been bribing Texas politicians, including LBJ, and when his fraudulent scheme began to unravel, the federal investigator on his trail and three potential witnesses were 'suicided', apparently by Wallace. (6) In 1984 Billy Sol Estes had his lawyer contact the Federal Justice Department and offered to talk about the role of LBJ and Wallace in eight murders, one of them JFK's ...

32. Southeast Asia: A Testament (Book Review) [Lobster #45 (Summer 2003)]
... when he is describing his travels in the region in the 1950s: the CIA was still, more or less, a secret organisation; but a lot of information has been produced since then and his ignorance in the late 1990s when he wrote this is difficult to comprehend or excuse. Crucially, he accepts the received view that JFK and LBJ were the same: he is apparently unaware of JFK's plan to pull the US out of Vietnam. 'Nor is there any reasons to suppose that things would have been any different had Kennedy not been killed, for he was every bit as rigid a Cold Warrior as Johnson.'( p. 188) This simply is not true ...

... 44) Winter 2002 Last| Contents| Next Issue 44 The Years of Lyndon Johnson: Master of the Senate Robert Caro New York and London: Alfred Knopf, 2002, hb $35 (US) £35 (UK) (But in the UK only £22 from Amazon.com) This is the third volume in Caro's biography of LBJ. The first two volumes are wonderful pieces of work, the best biographies I have read; and in many ways this is their equal and deserves the praise it has received. Even if we ignore the story of LBJ, this contains an account of the workings of the US Senate in the 1950s and the mechanics of legislative politics ...

... Finally, Kefauver was dumped by the party's northern liberals, led by Hubert Humphrey. Humphrey had first come to public prominence as a gang-busting mayor. Only many years later would it be known how many contributions Meyer Lansky had made to Humphrey's various campaigns. (When Humphrey later took his oath as vice president of the US in 1965 under LBJ, the Bible he swore on was held for him by one of his old patrons, Minneapolis vice lord Fred Gates.) Adlai Stevenson won the nomination and was hammered by Eisenhower the following November. Truman had even vetoed Stevenson's suggestion that Kefauver be placed on the ticket as vice-presidential candidate. Kefauver's reform aspirations died with his political ones ...

35. How to Fix an Election [Lobster #43 (Summer 2002)]
... thumping 25 electoral college votes. The USA has had some remarkable vote-rigging manoeuvres in the past: Kennedy's mob-assisted skullduggery in Illinois (worth 22 collegiate votes) seems to have robbed Nixon of the 1960 election. (15) Nixon, in turn, scuppered the Democrats in 1968, by persuading the Vietnamese to hold out on peace negotiations with LBJ, with the promise that they'd get a much better deal under a Nixon White House. Democratic candidate Hubert Humphrey discovered what was going on while travelling by plane to a rally: 'By God,' he shouted, 'when we land- I'll denounce Nixon!' But he never did. Under Nixon, who escalated the war when ...

36. RIP 'The Fourth Decade & Probe' [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... . But the neo-liberal system reserves the right to eradicate those who want to change it-- even if they are middle-class or wealthy. I think JFK was in this category. For all his wealth and foreign adventurism, JFK was extremely (politically) liberal. He began much of the civil rights legislation which was seen to completion by LBJ. He was interventionist rather than laissez-faire; he picked fights with the directors of US Steel and with the oil companies. And he was killed in that centre of the oil culture, Dallas, on his way to make a speech at the International Trade Mart.... whose head, in New Orleans, was a man ...

37. Price of Power (Book review) [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... an area where our collective ignorance was due simply to idleness: this information's been there waiting for someone with the patience to dig it out and assemble it. Given that the Tories have always declined to say where the money came from, it is extraordinary that their opponents never adopted some variant of LBJ's pig-fucker strategy. The story goes that LBJ was discussing how to attack an opponent in an election early in his career. The opponent was a farmer, and LBJ said, 'Let's accuse him of fucking his pigs.' 'You can't do that,' replied LBJ's advisor. 'Why not? ', said LBJ. 'Let him deny it.' I have no information that ...

... Tapes 1963-4 (Simon and Schuster, 1997) is an interesting read for many reasons, but Kennedy buffs will turn to the immediate post 22 November '63 sections looking for insights. There is only one significant revelation that I can see. At 10 in the morning on the 23rd- i.e. less than 24 hours after the shooting- LBJ and Hoover had this curious exchange. LBJ: Have you established any more about the visit to the Soviet embassy in Mexico in September? (emphasis added). Hoover: No, that's one angle that's very confusing, for this reason- we have up here the tape and the photograph of the man who was at the the ...

... is no evidence; and (b) that the government supported the US war in Vietnam; and on this the evidence is still ambiguous. It is true that British components of the Anglo-American intelligence and surveillance system, notably some GCHQ bases in the Far East, provided intelligence to the US. But despite a great deal of arm-twisting from LBJ, and despite Wilson's utter dependence on the US at this point for financial assistance to defend the value of the pound, Harold Wilson refused to send even a token force to Vietnam. (Apologists for Maurice Oldfield hint that he was instrumental in keeping the British state out of Vietnam.) The paragraph of Pilger's I have quoted illustrates ...
