Jackie’s Theory

The Magic Bullet Theory

November 29, 1963.  President Lyndon Baines Johnson creates the Warren Commission to investigate the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.  The reason for the commission: to ‘find’ the person/those responsible for the shooting of the 35th President of the United States in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963.

Slightly under ten months later, the Commission gave turned over the 888 page report to LBJ.  Commissioners Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, Rep. Gerald R. Ford (R–MI), Sen. Richard Russell Jr. (D-GA), Sen. John Sherman Cooper (R-KY), Rep. Hale Boggs (D-LA), Allen W. Dulles – Former Director of Central Intelligence and John J. McCloy – Former Head of the World Bank concluded there was no conspiracy in JFK’s death.  The lone shooter/assassin was one Lee Harvey Oswald.

President Johnson put the commission together in order to assuage any doubts the public may have had as to who committed this vile act.  Johnson wanted the exact result the Warren Commission gave him: there was no conspiracy.  Oswald acted alone.  Once entered into the public record, the Commission’s findings would be final and everyone would buy into the results.

How’d that work out for you Lydie?

In the years since, everyone and their brother has a different band of merry conspirators setting up to whack JFK at Dealey Plaza.  Terry Tocantins and I have a play opening at Scared Fools Theatre in March – The Magic Bullet Theory – and our group of whacksters is just as funky as Jim Marrs and Oliver Stone’s.

Interestingly, the only group of folks not heard from in the JFK Conspiracy Theories was the Kennedy family.  Whatever ideas they may have had were kept to themselves and out of the public discourse.  Perhaps the scion of Bootlegger Joe aka the founder of the Kennedy Political Dynasty thought it classless to engage in such speculation.  Or maybe it’s the pain of the event rehashed over and over again on Cable TV and the Internet is simply too much to bear.  Thus, the family refuses to talk.

According to a Fox News report, that will change in mid-September.  Which Kennedy talked?  The late Ted?  One of the grandkids?  Some notes left by RFK?  No.  The squealer is none other than Jackie Bouvier Kennedy-Onassis.

Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis believed Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the assassination of her husband, according to tapes recorded by the former first lady just months after President John F. Kennedy’s death, the Daily Mail reports.

The tapes, which are set to be released by ABC News, reportedly reveal that Kennedy-Onassis believed then-vice president Johnson, along with businessmen in the South, planned the Nov. 22, 1963, assassination of her husband in Dallas, Texas. 

“The tabloid reports about the content of the tapes are totally erroneous,” an ABC News spokesperson said in a statement to FoxNews.com. “ABC News isn’t releasing any content from those tapes until mid-September at which point it will be clear how off base these reports are. The actual content of the tapes provide unique and important insight into our recent past from one of the most fascinating and influential First Ladies in American history.”     

Kennedy-Onassis thought gunman Lee Harvey Oswald — long believed to be a lone assassin — was part of a larger conspiracy involving Johnson, according to the Daily Mail.

The tapes, which were recorded with historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr., also reveal that Kennedy-Onassis had an affair with actor William Holden in retaliation to her husband’s reported indiscretions, the Daily Mail reports.

The tapes, which were sealed in a vault at the Kennedy Library in Boston, were supposed to be released 50 years after Kennedy-Onassis’ 1994 death. But her daughter, Caroline Kennedy, reportedly agreed to their early release in exchange for ABC dropping its drama series about the family. It is not yet known when the tapes will air.

LBJ?  Jesus, Jackie and my Mother believe the same guy was behind the whole thing.  Who knew?
