Overview

Lyndon Baines Johnson was a man of great ambition and enormous greed, both of which, in 1963, would threaten to destroy him. In the end, President Johnson would use power from his personal connections in Texas and from the underworld and from the government to escape an untimely end in politics and to seize even greater power. President Johnson, the thirty-sixth president of the United States, was the driving force behind a conspiracy to murder President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963.

In The Man Who Killed Kennedy, you will find out how and why he did it.

Political consultant, strategist, and Libertarian Roger Stone has gathered documents and used his firsthand knowledge to construct the ultimate tome to prove that LBJ was not only involved in JFK’s assassination, but was in fact the mastermind.

With 2013 being the fiftieth anniversary of JFK’s assassination, this is the perfect time for The Man Who Killed Kennedy to be available to readers. The research and information in this book is unprecedented, and as Roger Stone lived through it, he’s the perfect person to bring it to everyone’s attention.

    A lot can be said about the JFK killing, LBJ, and Roger Stone. Caught Stone's best & worst dressed in Huff Post last year, and figured I'd give this book a shot. Did my fair amount of research on Roger Stone and while I disagree with his tactics, he has no doubt been close to powerful people who knew many things about the JFK assassination. We all know LBJ to be a dirty SOB, good to see someone not afraid to call him out. I believe that the connections he made in this book are valid....out of many who have written about JFK, Stone definitely has had the access to information and people that others have not.

    Excellent up-to-date review and evidence into the JFK murder!

    I just read Stone's "The Man Who Killed Kennedy." The book does a great job of presenting evidence that has been verified in many books before, plus it adds a new dimension of evidence pointing straight at LBJ, the CIA, and big oil business men in Texas. I also just read articles in Texas Monthly, based in Dallas, that still endeavors to shift the blame away from Dallas and minimize the part their politically corrupt local forces played in the murder. This is just my opinion. It amazes me that after 50 years, there are so many people trying to erase the strong evidence that points to a political, mafia, and greed conspiracy ... I think they all just want a "piece$ of the action." The Kennedys, LBJ, CIA, Hoover, Dallas police, and the mafia, were all equally bad, evil, or whatever you wish to use to describe them, but I do not believe the "patsy" Oswald was ever more than a minor player duped into becoming the fall guy for a well orchestrated murder scheme involving many of this country's most celebrated politicians. The Kennedy brothers were well on their way to revealing a network of corruptness outdone only by their own family.

    Excretory

    The author is taking advantage of the gullible, idiots, and the paranoid. Anyone capable of cognizant thought can see through his dangerously flawed reaoning. The author should be hospitalized in a psychiatric institution for his own safety and the safety of the public. For a believable book about the Kennedy assassination read Gerald Posner's, "Case Closed".

    The book is packed full of historical facts of the era that were hidden, ignored, or swepted under the rug. As a combat vet in Viet Nam,
    I know for a fact that JFK was shot in the front of his head. There is no conspiricy 'theory'
    there WAS a conspericey. This book blows O'Riely's book out of the water. Do yourself a favor - read the book and come to your own conclusions !

    I knew it.........

    I remember a picture of johnson looking down upon mrs. Kennedy just after he was sworn ln. It was ln a book my dad had gotten about a year after he was killed. He looked at her with such an evil smile on his face. I told my dad "he did it". I was only 16, but I still remember that moment of clarity. Now I know I was right, as this book fills in all the gaps in the story. It was a great read. Hard to put down.

    A spectacular addition to the historical record on the JFK assassination - the final nail into the murderous legacy of Lyndon Baines Johnson. LBJ murdered JFK: Nixon, Goldwater, Henry Cabot Lodge, William Casey and KGB all knew it.

    Roger Stone is one of the most brilliant men in the political world. I hope this is the first of many books. I've enjoyed reading his blog and articles over the years. I am glad he finally put pen to paper and wrote a book. Big fan from NJ.

    THE MAN WHO KILLED KENNEDY:THE CASE AGAINST LBJ BY ROGER STONE

    I was 15 years old and living in the little town of Mart in east Texas when the Cuban Missile Crisis took place. All these years I couldn't understand what really happened and who assassinated President Kennedy. The day Roger Stone's book was ready to purchase I ran to Barnes and Noble and got "THE MAN WHO KILLED KENNEDY:THE CASE AGAINST LBJ. I started reading and couldn't put in down and read the book in three day's! Now all of my question's have been answered. I was amazed at the conversations with political insiders and all that was revealed about the Bay of Pigs and the assassination of Kennedy. Roger Stone combines decades of political knowledge with cutting edge research to also back up the Kennedy assassination. It's the best one I've read to this day.

    This book is an interesting read; however, it contains so many inaccuracies that its whole credibility must be challenged.  On top of which, Mr. Stone's conclusions require that LBJ, the Mob, FBI, CIA, and Secret Service were all involved and that they have all kept their mouths shut.  Just some inaccuracies:  He refers to "Richard" Maheu, (who was associated with Howard Hughes and a former FBI Agent) yet his first name was Robert.  He also states that  in 1970, when George HW Bust was made US Ambassador to the the UN and live in the Waldorf Towers in New York, that former President Herbert Hoover was his neighbor (neat trick, Hoover died in 1964).  He also states that after the assassination, Bobby Kennedy's first public appearance was on the Tonight Show, Starring "Jack Parr."  Carson took over the Tonight Show in 1962 and Parr never hosted in 1964.  
    As I said, an interesting read, but the inaccuracies coupled with the number involved make Mr. Stone's conclusions highly suspect.

    This book is a scam...NO Israeli / Mossad connection--how convenient.  N. Goldman gave the final order to kill Kennedy
    at the World Jewish Congress after JFKs huge fight with Israeli PM Ben Gurion over Israeli Nukes and Ben Gurion
    resigned shotly thereafter and the conversations are still sealed.  Also Kennedy threatened to by-pass The Fedral 
    Reserve and start printing money.  There was also an Executive Order to this effect.  The big money has always
    been in the hands of the Rothschilds and agents like Bronfmans in Canada.  Vietnam Heroin trade was now king
    .   a perfect (and another) reason to kill JFK. Michael Collin Piper.reads true with real facts not holes.

    It was a great read. The evidence is very compelling, LBJ did it and Stone proves it. I would expect this book to become the go-to reference on the assassination henceforth.

    This book presents a lot of detail and background that I was not aware of previously, other than conspiracy theory innuendo. Unfortunately, it is many times so biased, story rambling and disconnected, and editing so poor, I had a difficult time enjoying the read. There is little here, however, that is undocumented,  unverified by witnesses, or unfathomable. I never liked LBJ when I liked him, now even less.

    Interesting Read

    This book sheds light on a completely different set of facts than what the Warren Commission published. There was a conspiracy involving LBJ, certain members of the CIA and FBI, Texas oilmen and the Mob. All had an interest in getting rid of JFK and RFK. Well researched and documented. Just shows how a massive cover up can take place.

    Once you start reading it is hard to stop. I had my thoughts that LBJ did it and this book proved it. It is an eye opener about other Presidents also that I didn't know.

    I have long been a conspiricy theorist, so this was a good read, but we will never really know for sure, will we? I'm amazed at how much difference there can be between this book and Bill O'reilly's (and others). It is very frustrating to think that there's not much of a chance that the truth will ever be revealed! I do recommend anyone who has an interest in this subject read this book.

    He names names and supports each chapter with references. So this is not to be dismissed. And he calls other authors, such as Caro, to task for not naming some of the names he names.

    And he also states that he once asked Caro in person about such an omission, to which Caro reacted very aggressively - and then never contacted him. If true, what else is also true?
