Here is a short biography of Clint Murchison Sr. He was held in such esteem to many Texans. He's the one who hosted the meeting at his Dallas house that included Richard Nixon, J. Edgar Hoover, LBJ and others. This is the meeting when they decided to go ahead with the Assassination of President Kennedy the next day, according to LBJ's girlfriend.

"Here is more about Clint Murchison Sr. Evidently, people thought he was quite a guy. But he held that late meeting the night before the assassination in his Dallas home. Guests: J. Edgar Hoover, Richard Nixon, Murchison, Johnson and others. It was here -- it is said -- that they decided to go ahead with the Assassination of John Kennedy the next day. Here is more of Clint Murchinson's noble life:

Clint W. Murchison, Sr.

In 1985, Virginia L. Murchison of Athens, Texas, announced her intention to honor her grandfather, Clint W. Murchison,Sr., by a donation to augment the present endowment of the Chair. Consequently, it has been re-designated as the Clint W. Murchison Sr. Chair of Free Enterprise. The additional endowment provides funding for a new adjunct of the Chair, the Center for Technology Development and Transfer, established in 1985 by the 69th Texas Legislature.

Mr. Murchison was born April 11, 1895, in Tyler, Texas, the third child of John Weldon and Clara Lee Murchison. As a small child he moved with his parents to Athens, Texas, where he attended grade school and Bruce Academy.

Early in life, Clint Murchison evidenced remarkable talent as a trader with original approaches to financing. He spurned the college education which his parents planned for him at Trinity University (then at Waxahachie, Texas), choosing instead to work in the family bank and to continue his cattle trading and private business ventures. (Years later, for his sons he provided the finest possible education.)

After serving as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army during World War I, in 1919 he joined his boyhood friend, Sid W. Richardson, in the new oil fields developing in the Wichita Falls area [where Robert Oswald lives, Lee Harvey's "brother,"] where he quickly made his first fortune. During his lifetime he conceived and developed numerous important business enterprises, including Southern Union Gas Corporation, American Liberty Oil Company, Delhi Oil Corporation, and Trans Canada Pipeline, Inc. He considered the Canadian project his greatest achievement. [Oil, oil, oil...]

Clint W. Murchison, Sr. was foremost among the developers of the great natural gas industry of the world.

With equal zest he blended his world of oil, cattle, investments, hunting, fishing and farming. He held work to be the cornerstone of achievement and happiness, and he believed that his ability as a creative financier was his greatest talent. He was credited with developing the concept of the reversionary interest format of financing as applied to the oil industry. A true humanitarian, he consistently enabled his business associates to become financially independent by acquiring ownership positions in the companies for which they worked. His favorite philanthropy was in assisting young men with their education.

Three sons were born to Clint and Anne Morris Murchison: John Dabney, born September 5, 1921, and died June 14, 1979; Clinton Williams Murchison, Jr., born September 12, 1923; and Burk Murchison, born January 26, 1925, and died April 15, 1936.

Clint Murchison, Sr. was a Presbyterian, a Mason [secret Society?], a Democrat ?, and a member of numerous prestigious organizations. He died June 19, 1969, in Athens, Texas."

What's that old saying about believing only half of what your read, less of what you hear ... or something like that?

The "according to LBJ's girlfriend" should tell you all that you need to know or credit: if your boyfriend was cheating on you, would you believe his girlfriend? QED either way. The "meeting" didn't happen.

Madeleine Brown was the "girlfriend." She wrote a book about the affair, called Texas in the Morning. She describes a meeting the night before Kennedy was killed. It occurred at Murchison's house in or close to Dallas. Richard Nixon was there; LBJ; J. Edgar Hoover; Clint Murchison, Sr. LBJ arrived last. They all went into a room and closed the doors. Shortly afterward, Johnson came out with a reddened face and said to Madeleine Brown: "After tomorrow those Kennedy boys will never embarrass me again."

Brown also told this story on Nigel Turner's TMWKK. Someone I respect in this Kennedy Community believed it. And she told her story, knowing Lady Byrd Johnson was alive and healthy. As far as I know, Lady Byrd never said anything about Madeleine's story. LBJ had several girlfriends over the years. Why didn't LBJ divorce Lady Byrd? Lady Byrd knew where all the bodies were buried.

While this meeting was going on, the Secret Service were getting plastered. Did they ever do this before? How would they protect the President the next day with hangovers? Maybe the answer to that is: there was no protection plan for the President.
