Avis de l'équipe

In this audio book, longtime Republican political operative Roger Stone makes a daring assertion about one of the most pivotal moments in American history.

Featuring a measured performance by David Rapkin, The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ presents the theory that the CIA conspired with the Mafia and Texas oil men to kill Kennedy and install Lyndon Johnson as the president. Although Stone’s assertion will certainly be questioned, his firsthand knowledge of politics and politicians shines through in his writing.

Rapkin’s calm, conversational performance helps make Stone’s contentious claims feel slightly less hyperbolic.

Description

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.

Stone Has Written a Blockbuster

Every American should read this book particularly those of us who lived through this
era. I will never look at American Politics again in the same way.

COMPELLING BOOK - THE CROOKS ARE IN POWER

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Highly recommended because it provides convinging evidence which shows that the Warren Commission was a complete white wash. Oswald was a distraction to prevent the real killers from being sought. The evidence is very clear in this regard.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

the book is too long to go through in one sitting

Any additional comments?

The American people need to listen to this book and to rise up against the tyranical forces in power. This is disturbing but inaction will lead to tyrany and oppression.

The government needs to come clean.

You'll Likely Be Convinced...

that LBJ did it. A great deal of circumstantial evidence. Though circumstantial, enough of it to make defending Johnson seem impossible. The story is interesting; however, it comes across as a bit of a research paper with a lot of name dropping.

Disturbingly Believable

Any additional comments?

I try not to buy in to conspiracy theories and I only bought this audiobook because it was on sale and the reviews here and on other websites were pretty good, but wow!

I kinda found it very believable.

Certainly without doing my own research I have to take the author's facts at face value. But even if only 50% of the facts are accurate, LBJ certainly seemed like a man of massive ego and hugely questionable morals who certainly had the power, connections and motive to clear the way for his own presidency.

It was certainly a very ugly period in US history and there are so many theories, so many movies, books and documentaries about the events, it can be hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. But this book read fresh and rigorous and I was left feeling uneasy and that he should have been at least a leading suspect in any true investigation.

A must [so I thought -- but is any of it true?]

What made the experience of listening to The Man Who Killed Kennedy the most enjoyable?
Finally a convincing version of one of the most significant events in the second half of the 20th century.

What did you like best about this story?
The connecting of many elements into a coherent (and terrifying) perspective

He reads clearly, at a good speed and with a good voice. Excellent reader.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Many

Any additional comments?
Makes one see the world in a different way. [2019: I have since learned who Roger Stone is and have serious doubts about anything he says]•

Doesn't really deliver

There are a lot of interesting facts in this book. As a review of events surrounding the assassination of John Kennedy, it's a success. But as an indictment of LBJ, it falls very short. There are other books focused on LBJ that do a much better job.

No real evidence

Thought there was more evidence about Johnson. I already thought he was involved but the book did not come close to convincing me I was right. A lot of names but nothing convincing.

scribbles all over page but doesn't connect dots

I read all of Robert Caro's books on LBJ then decided to read this one. It is very believable that LBJ could be involved in the plot. it is amazing about all of the people that died mysteriously that were key Witnesses. there is lots of circumstantial evidence but in my opinion the author doesn't do a good job connecting it to LBJ directly

great story, and sadly true

To think how deep the corruption was back then and how many people died just to hid the truth of LBJ's arrogance.To learn that it ran so deep too... including Nixon, Ford, & Bush, just to name a few. Are we safe yet... who knows.
