received a tip-off that Clint Murchison and Tom Webb - the FBI
veteran the millionaire had hired at Edgar's suggestion - were
both acquainted with Jack Ruby. While they denied it. Ruby had
met one of Murchison's best friends, Humble Oil millionaire
Byars was close to Edgar. They used adjacent bungalows at
Murchison's California hotel each summer. The phone log for the
Director's office shows that, aside from calls to Robert Kennedy
and the head of the Secret Service, Edgar called only one man on
the afternoon the President was shot - Billy Byars.
(8) Gary Mack published an account of Madeleine Brown's story on
14th May, 1997.
Madeleine has claimed over the years that she attended a party
at Clint Murchison’s house the night before the assassination
and LBJ, Hoover and Nixon were there. The party story, without
LBJ, first came from Penn Jones in Forgive My Grief. In that
version, the un-credited source was a black chauffeur whom Jones
didn’t identify, and the explanation Jones gave was that it was
the last chance to decide whether or not to kill JFK. Of course,
Hoover used only top FBI agents for transportation and in the
FBI of 1963, none were black. Actually, there is no confirmation
for a party at Murchison’s. I asked Peter O’Donnell because
Madeleine claimed he was there, too. Peter said there was no
party. Madeleine even said there was a story about it in the
Dallas Times Herald some months later (which makes no sense),
but she had not been able to find it. Val Imm (Society Editor of
the Dallas Times Herald) told Bob Porter (of the Sixth Floor
Museum at Dealey Plaza staff) recently she had no memory of such
an event and even looked through her notes - in vain.
Could LBJ have been at a Murchison party? No. LBJ was seen and
photographed in the Houston Coliseum with JFK at a dinner and
speech. They flew out around 10pm and arrived at Carswell (Air
Force Base in northwest Fort Worth) at 11:07 Thursday night.
Their motorcade to the Hotel Texas arrived about 11:50 and LBJ
was again photographed. He stayed in the Will Rogers suite on
the 13th floor and Manchester (William Manchester - author of
The Death of a President) says he was up late. Could Nixon have
been at Murchison’s party? No. Tony Zoppi (Entertainment Editor
of The Dallas Morning News) and Don Safran (Entertainment Editor
of the Dallas Times Herald) saw Nixon at the Empire Room at the
Statler-Hilton. He walked in with Joan Crawford (Movie actress).
Robert Clary (of Hogan’s Heroes fame) stopped his show to point
them out, saying “. . . either you like him or you don’t.” Zoppi
thought that was in poor taste, but Safran said Nixon laughed.
Zoppi’s deadline was 11pm, so he stayed until 10:30 or 10:45 and
Nixon was still there.

gamblers and racketeers have been registered there.
" LBJ Night Before JFK Assassination: "Those SOB's Will Never
Embarrass Me Again"
Outside the debate of magic bullets, multiple shooters and
grassy knoll theories - an astounding deposition of a
deliberately planned criminal conspiracy straight from the
Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | August 30 2006
The night before the Kennedy assassination, Lyndon Baines
Johnson met with Dallas tycoons, FBI moguls and organized crime
kingpins - emerging from the conference to tell his mistress
Madeleine Duncan Brown that "those SOB's" would never embarrass
him again. It's a jaw-dropping deposition and it's the biggest
JFK smoking gun there is - despite the fact that it has received
little media attention.
Before her death on June 22 2002, prolific author and lecturer
Robert Gaylon Ross had the opportunity to conduct an 80 minute
sit-down interview with Madeleine Duncan Brown and from that
lengthy discussion the truth about exactly who was behind the
assassination of JFK was exposed.
Though Brown first went public on her 21-year relationship with
Johnson in the early 80's, to this day her shocking revelations
about how he had told her the Kennedy's "would never embarrass
me again" the night before the assassination are often ignored
by the media who prefer to keep the debate focused on issues
which can't definitively be proven either way (or at least can
be spinned and whitewashed).
it is important to note that before her death Brown carried no
hostility towards Lyndon Johnson and in fact was just as smitten
with him as on the first day they met.
Brown said that the plan to kill JFK had its origins in the 1960
Democratic Convention, at which John F. Kennedy was elected as
presidential candidate with Johnson as his running mate, where
H.L. Hunt, an American oil tycoon, and Lyndon Johnson hatched
the assassination plot.
"When they met in California Joe Kennedy, John Kennedy's father,
and H.L. Hunt met met three days prior to the election - they
finally cut a deal according to John Currington (an aide to H.L.
Hunt) and H.L. finally agreed that Lyndon would go as the vice
president....this came from the horse's mouth way back in 1960 -
when H.L. came back to Dallas I was walking....with him....and
he made the remark, 'we may have lost a battle but we're going
to win a war,' and then the day of the assassination he said
'well, we won the war'," said Brown.
Brown said that in the immediate aftermath of the convention
Hunt and Johnson mapped out a strategy to kill Kennedy.
"It was a total political crime and H.L. Hunt really controlled
what actually happened to John Kennedy - he and Lyndon Johnson,"
"They had this lodge....outside of Dallas and they would meet
there....he chose different people to do certain things for him
and I'm sure it went on about two years prior to the
assassination of John Kennedy."
In the video Brown describes the make-up and activities of the
"8F group" which revolved socially and politically around
Johnson and Hunt and included high rolling oil tycoons, judges
and then FBI director J. Edgar Hoover.
The group included Jack Ruby, the Dallas nightclub owner who
would later shoot the patsy Lee Harvey Oswald dead on November
"We were playing poker at the Carousel Club and Jack Ruby came
over and he said 'you know what this is?' and I looked up....he
had this motorcade route....it stung me that he would be this
involved in knowing where the President of the United States
was....at that time in my life I thought they were untouchable,"
Brown described Ruby as the "in man" in Texas who could be
trusted to arrange call girls, drugs, gambling fixes and even
The group met for a party in Dallas hosted by Clint Murchison,
another business tycoon with close links to the Genovese mafia,
on November 21st 1963, the night before the assassination. Those
present at the event included J. Edgar Hoover, Clyde Tolson,
John J. McCloy, Jack Ruby, George Brown (of Brown and Root),
numerous mafia kingpins, several newspaper and TV reporters, and
The party began to wind down at around 11 o' clock when the
attendees were shocked to witness the arrival of Lyndon Johnson
who had traveled from Houston. Clint Murchison immediately
called a meeting.
"They all went in to this conference room.....Lyndon didn't stay
that much in the meeting and when he came out....he grabbed me
by the arm and he had this deep voice and he said, 'after
tomorrow those S.O.B.'s will never embarrass me again - that's
no threat - that's a promise.'"
Johnson was still irate when he called Madeleine Brown the
morning of the assassination, telling her the Irish mafia
(meaning the Kennedy family) would never embarrass him again.
Brown was in Dallas in the day of the assassination but just as
the parade for Kennedy was beginning she left and began driving
towards Austin, first stopping off to have a haircut. Upon
entering a hair salon she saw the news that Kennedy had been
shot and immediately thought to call Lou Sterrett , who was an
Austin media mogul.
