    Edward M. Kennedy was romantically described as the last lion, but it might be more accurate to think of him as a river. Especially earlier in his long career, he could be tumultuous and overflow his banks, both politically and in his personal life. But mostly he was steady, forceful, and above all persistent. Particularly in the three decades after his failed 1980 presidential bid

    And brought Obama’s father to America. When LBJ signed the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act into law, JFK had been dead for two years, but it, more than the Cuban missile crisis or the race to the moon, was his real legacy which still impacts us today when there are no more Americans on the moon or nukes in Cuba. At the signing, LBJ paid tribute to “the vision of the late beloved President John Fitzgerald Kennedy”. Little did the 36th president know that the 44th president, born to a radical Kenyan student, was already growing up in this country...
  • On this day in 1964: LBJ calls for ‘war on poverty’ in America

    On Jan. 8, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson during his State of the Union address declared an “unconditional war on poverty in America.” “Poverty is a national problem, requiring improved national organization and support,” Johnson told the members of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. “But this attack, to be effective, must also be organized at the state and the local level and must be supported and directed by state and local efforts. Poverty in the United States stood at 19% in 1964, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Democratic former Texas U.S....

    ALICE, Texas (AP) — In 1977, Associated Press reporter James W. Mangan’s exclusive interview with a South Texas election judge who detailed certifying false votes for Lyndon B. Johnson nearly three decades earlier made headlines across the country. With the win by an 87-vote margin in the 1948 Democratic primary runoff, Johnson, then a congressman, easily defeated his Republican opponent to take a seat in the U.S. Senate, and he eventually ascended to the presidency. Mangan spent three years pursuing the story, which pulled back the curtain on the victory that had drawn suspicions ever since election officials in rural...

    After Billy Graham, the famous preacher and presidential confidante, passed away in 2018, Luke Nichter was one of the first researchers to get a glimpse at previously unseen Graham diary entries kept at the evangelical Wheaton College. Nichter’s new book The Year That Broke Politics: Collusion and Chaos in the Presidential Election of 1968, out today, is the first to be based on Graham’s personal diaries. The entries reveal that incumbent Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson worked behind the scenes that year to help get Republican Richard Nixon elected. In a phone conversation on July 17, Nichter explained how the...

    Wishing away the ghost of a slain predecessor, our president is trying to bury a living law. ********************************************************* Hypocrisy is never a good look. On June 30, our secretary of Education declared that the Supreme Court, by striking down President Biden’s student-debt forgiveness program, had “substituted itself for Congress.” On the very same day, Biden issued his “Memorandum on Certifications Regarding Disclosure of Information in Certain Records Related to the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy,” decreeing that, from now on, executive-branch agencies would adopt the CIA’s “Transparency Plan” for releasing assassination related files they control. The problem: The federal...

    One of those men was Henry Marshall, whose death—he was shot five separate times in the chest with a rifle—was ruled “a suicide.”.. June 3, 1961, Henry Marshall was found dead on his farm near Bryan in Robertson County, Texas. He had been shot five times with his own rifle. Marshall, 51, had worked as a clerk with the Robertson County office of the Agricultural Adjustment Agency (AAA), holding a senior post in the agency. In 1960, he was asked to investigate the activities of Billie Sol Estes, a wealthy benefactor of Lyndon B. Johnson, whom he found to have...

    Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. made his strongest allegations yet over the weekend about the 1963 assassination of his uncle, JFK, flat-out accusing the Central Intelligence Agency of being behind the world-altering murder. It’s not the first time he’s indicated this belief, but his comments are some of the most categorical statements he’s made on the subject. On Sunday, he spoke on radio with host John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM’s “Cats Roundtable” and left no doubts about where he stands: There is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder. I think it’s beyond a reasonable...

    WASHINGTON—Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairman Ellen Weintraub’s renewed feud with President Donald Trump over voter fraud allegations from the 2016 election has the ranking House Committee on Administration Republican asking some pointed questions about excessive partisanship within the regulatory panel. “Recently, I believe this tone of partisanship has been amplified by some at the Commission,” Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) said in a letter to the FEC’s leadership made public Tuesday. “Partisan attacks only serve to undermine your work and the work of the entire Commission staff,” Davis said. He was writing on behalf of the three Republicans on the Administration...

    In late March, audio recordings from a 1977 interview detailing how the late President Lyndon Johnson won the 1948 Senate contest in Texas were posted to the archival website of the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. The tapes renewed interest in the sordid episode that saved Johnson’s political career — and threw some light on how American elections have been, and can be, stolen. In 1977, James Mangan, a reporter for the Associated Press, conducted a series of interviews that touched on the allegations of the 1948 steal. After Mangan...

    American Thinker ^ | 04/07/2023 | Thomas Lifson
    Kudos to the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin for posting to the web copies of tapes that prove that Lyndon Baines Johnson stole his seat in the Senate when first running for it. Johnson went on to absolutely dominate the Senate as Majority Leader, and from there he managed to become president when JFK was assassinated in his home state of Texas while he was VP. The stolen election was the Democrat primary, which back then was tantamount to election because Democrats dominated the segregated South of the era. Johnson defeated former Texas Governor Coke Stevenson by 87 votes, after...

    The assassination of Martin Luther King Jr, on the 4th April 1968, lead to many very violent criminal reactions on April 5th and the following few days. In the King assassination riots, there were 43 deaths, over 3,000 injuries and over 20,000 people arrested. President Lindon Johnson said of that extreme reaction: “What did you expect? ....... When you put your foot on a man’s neck and hold him down for three hundred years, and then you let him up, what’s he going to do? He’s going to knock your block off.” King had said “……. in spite of temporary...

    I’m sure you’ve heard people saying this before. Perhaps you’ve even said it yourself. ‘Those Democrats stole the election.’ And in this case, you’d be correct, but it’s probably not the election you’re thinking about. The Associated Press has an interesting walk down memory lane this week discovered in a set of tapes that were donated to the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library and Museum last summer. On the tapes, a former South Texas election judge told a reporter that the 1948 Texas Senate primary election was stolen in favor of LBJ and he described exactly how it was done....

    It was a cold, solemn day on the Texas ranch. A biting, prairie wind was staved off with a thick, fur coat wrapped around an American music icon. Former President Lyndon B. Johnson had said before he died that at his burial he wanted the Rev. Billy Graham to pray and Anita Bryant to sing. Bryant, once Miss Oklahoma and a Miss America second runner-up, was known in 1973 as the vivacious spokeswoman for Florida orange juice and the Sunshine State. She nervously tried to get her voice ready to sing for a worldwide satellite television audience at the president’s...

Brewer, who works with young men through his non-profit,the Jack Brewer Foundation, has spoken out about how fatherlessness contributes to crime and violence.

I was a straight-A student, a great multi-sport athlete, and even director of my church choir. If I was caught with that gun in my pocket, I would not be testifying before you today....
