Glen Sample has updated his fabulous book The Men on the Sixth Floor. I highly recommend buying this "must-have" JFK book on Kindle for $10. That is easily affordable compared to $150 for a used copy. This is a rare but extremely valuable book focusing on the Lyndon Johnson angle of the JFK assassination. It is the story of Loy Factor who may have been a sniper recruited by LBJ's personal hitman Malcolm Wallace for work in the 1963 Coup d'Etat.

A weak link in Loy Factor's story is that he has Oswald up on the Sixth Floor (and shooting), which I do not really think happened. I think it is much more likely that Loy Factor himself was up on the Sixth Floor shooting, and not Oswald, the patsy.

Glen Sample has added Chapters 19 "The Guilty Men" (about the Men Who Killed Kennedy series on the History Channel and the response) and Chapter 20 "The Mac Wallace Fingerprint."

Glen Sample's book was the FIRST to release the Billie Sol Estes letters to the Justice Dept and put them in the public realm. Basically, Billie Sol Estes was confessing to planning murders with Lyndon Johnson, Cliff Carter, and LBJ's personal hit man Malcolm Wallace.

The other blockbuster stuff in this book was Sample's work on Malcolm Wallace, Lyndon Johnson's hitman. Researcher Jay Harrison was another one who had been doing parallel work into the Malcolm Wallace relationship to LBJ and the JFK assassination. Remember Wallace went to work for a company of oil man D. H. "Dryhole" Byrd who owned the Texas School Book Depository. So Wallace and any CIA guys in on the JFK plot could have had easy access to TSBD.

There is a possibility that LBJ's hitman Malcolm Wallace was coordinating with the CIA killers of JFK.

Glen Sample, like Barr McClellan took the fingerprint of Malcolm Wallace and the unidentified one on Box A of the Sixth Floor and had it confirmed by fingerprint experts. It is the fingerprint of Malcolm Wallace's left pinky finger. The FBI later said it was not a match, but who cares what they have to say: the FBI has been covering up for the murderers of JFK for 48 years and their institutional behavior in this matter has been completely corrupt. I think J. Edgar Hoover himself was personally involved in the JFK assassination; almost certainly he had foreknowledge of it. Hoover was simply too close to the perps Lyndon Johnson and the Dallas, TX oil men such as Clint Murchison, Sr.

BILLIE SOL ESTES letter:

LETTER #2 - FROM DOUGLAS CADDY (lawyer for Billie Sol Estes)

August 9, 1984

Mr. Stephen S. Trott

Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division

U.S. Department of Justice

Washington, D. C. 20530

RE: Mr. Billie Sol Estes

Dear Mr. Trott:

My client, Mr. Estes, has authorized me to make this reply to your letter of May 29, 1984. Mr. Estes was a member of a four-member group, headed by Lyndon Johnson, which committed criminal acts in Texas in the 1960's. The other two, besides Mr. Estes and LBJ, were Cliff Carter and Mac Wallace. Mr. Estes is willing to disclose his knowledge concerning the following criminal offenses:

I. Murders

1. The killing of Henry Marshall

2. The killing of George Krutilek

3. The killing of Ike Rogers and his secretary

4. The killing of Harold Orr

5. The killing of Coleman Wade

6. The killing of Josefa Johnson

7. The killing of John Kinser

8. The killing of President J. F. Kennedy.

Mr. Estes is willing to testify that LBJ ordered these killings, and that he transmitted his orders through Cliff Carter to Mac Wallace, who executed the murders. In the cases of murders nos. 1-7, Mr. Estes' knowledge of the precise details concerning the way the murders were executed stems from conversations he had shortly after each event with Cliff Carter and Mac Wallace.

In addition, a short time after Mr. Estes was released from prison in 1971, he met with Cliff Carter and they reminisced about what had occurred in the past, including the murders. During their conversation, Carter orally compiled a list of 17 murders which had been committed, some of which Mr. Estes was unfamiliar. A living witness was present at that meeting and should be willing to testify about it. He is Kyle Brown, recently of Houston and now living in Brady, Texas.

Mr. Estes, states that Mac Wallace, whom he describes as a "stone killer" with a communist background, recruited Jack Ruby, who in turn recruited Lee Harvey Oswald. Mr. Estes says that Cliff Carter told him that Mac Wallace fired a shot from the grassy knoll in Dallas, which hit JFK from the front during the assassination.

PHIL BRENNAN ON HOW THE KENNEDYS HAD DECLARED "OPEN SEASON" ON lYNDON JOHNSON IN THE FALL OF 1963:

Some Relevant Facts About the JFK Assassination

Phil Brennan NEWSMAX

Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2003

There's an explosive new book that lays out a very detailed - and

persuasive - case for the probability that the late President Lyndon Baines

Johnson was responsible for the assassination of President John F.

Kennedy.

I say persuasive because the author, Barr McClellan, was one of LBJ's top

lawyers, and he provides a lot of information hitherto unknown to the general

public - much more of which he says is buried in secret documents long

withheld from the American people.

"The American public has waited forty years to hear the truth about the JFK

assassination," McClellan says. "For government agencies to withhold

critical evidence and not cooperate with the [1998 investigation conducted

by the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB)] is a form of

obstruction of justice. Under the requirements of the Freedom of Information

Act, the public should be granted access to these documents."

According to McClellan and Doug Horne, a former ARRB investigator, hundreds

of relevant documents were withheld from the 1998 investigation into the

JFK assassination. They believe that these materials are now in the

possession of the National Archives, relocated from sealed files previously

controlled by the CIA and FBI.

McClellan also asked for a formal review of the evidence in his book, "Blood,

Money & Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K.," which establishes a direct

connection between LBJ and an individual involved with the assassination

and cover-up.

"At this time we need to see what else is missing and what else would be helpful

to presenting the entire truth," McClellan continued. "The Senate

Judiciary Committee and the Department of Justice could make the request

of the National Archives and should do so."

Now, in normal circumstance I would tend to view this latest explanation of who

was behind the killing of JFK as exactly that - just another theory among

dozens. But the circumstances are not normal. Poll after poll establishes that

an overwhelming majority of Americans believe that the official verdict of the

Warren Commission is simply not borne out by what little is known publicly

about the case.

McClellan's new book adds to those facts and names a second suspect he says

was a longtime assassin for Lyndon Johnson, whom he portrays as ...

well, as being homicidal whenever he or his many concealed interests were

threatened.

Add to that the incredible inconsistencies in the FBI and Secret Service

investigations, which reek with the stench of cover-up, and one can't escape

the conclusion that if LBJ did nothing else in dealing with the aftermath of

the assassination, he sure as hell clamped a lid on any evidence that

contradicted the official finding that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone

gunman acting solely on his own initiative.

I report all of this as a prelude to revealing what I know about the matter but have

never before written about - in the beginning, because I had a wife and

seven children to protect, and since, because I had no reason to revisit the

matter.

Let's start with this: McClellan and others before him have discussed the fact that

LBJ faced some pretty awful prospects, including not only being dumped

from the 1964 ticket but also spending a long, long time in the slammer as a

result of his role in the rapidly expanding Bobby Baker case - something few

have speculated about because the full facts were never revealed by the

media, which didn't want to know, or report, the truth.

Sometime in early 1963 I was approached by a young lady with whom I had

worked on Nixon's 1960 campaign staff. She asked me if I would meet with

her fiancé, who was in great difficulty - and in danger of being murdered.

At the time I was on the staff of the House Republican Policy Committee, and

one of my assignments was to keep my bosses up to date on what was

going on behind the scenes in the Cold War, analyzing intelligence that

came our way and otherwise engaging in a never-ending clandestine, back-

alley war with the Democrat majority.

I was also writing a Washington column for Bill Buckley's National Review

magazine under the cover name Cato, a fact known only to the top GOP

House leadership, which allowed me to do the column as long as I didn't use

my byline or write it on government time.

Moreover, in my Cato column I had recently broken the story about the Billie Sol

Estes scandal, which involved Estes' crony, Lyndon Johnson.

The young lady knew all that, and that's why she came to me. I agreed to meet

with her fiancé, a South Carolinian named Ralph Hill. We met at the Market

Inn, had a couple of martinis, and Hill told me his tale of woe.

He had come to Washington some time before and was steered to a fellow South

Carolinian, one Bobby Baker, the powerful secretary of the Senate and a

very close associate of Vice President Lyndon Johnson.

To make a long story short, Baker advised Hill to go into the vending machine

business and promised him he'd arrange to get some major defense

contractors to install the machines, which vended soft drinks, sandwiches,

cigarettes and the like.

There was only one catch - Baker wanted under-the-table payoffs for his part in

setting up what would be a very lucrative business opportunity with tens of

thousands of potential customers who worked in defense plants.

True to his word, Baker got a number of defense contractors to agree to allow Hill

the exclusive right to install his vending machines on their premises. It was

an opportunity to print money by the barrel, and with those golden

contracts in hand, Hill was able to go to the bank and borrow all the funds he

needed to buy the vending machines and go into business. For a while he

prospered - as did Baker.

But whatever he was paying Baker was not enough to satisfy the man who, for all

intents and purposes, had the Senate under his thumb. He saw that the

members of the Democrat majority got whatever they wanted - money, bimbos,

LBJ's help, you name it. They were all in his pocket.

He could arrange multimillion-dollar contracts for the defense industry or take

them away if he wanted. He was LBJ's guy and was all-powerful and a very

dangerous man to have as an enemy, a fact Ralph Hill learned when

Baker put the bite on him for bigger payoffs.

The problem for Hill was that he had big payments to make on the loans he'd

taken out to buy the equipment and set himself up in business, had

some pretty steep overhead, and simply didn't have enough left over to

boost his payments to Baker.

He tried to explain that fact of life to Baker, but the secretary of the United States

Senate wasn't having any. He simply repeated his demands and threatened

Hill that if he didn't pay up he'd see that Hill lost all those juicy defense plant

contracts.

Bad went to worse, Baker made good on his threats, and Hill was facing

bankruptcy. Moreover, it was made known to him that if he didn't simply fold

his tent and go off without making trouble for Baker, he might meet with an

unfortunate - and probably fatal - accident.

But Hill was facing bankruptcy and the loss of everything he had, and he simply

would not give up. He was fighting for his life. And he had the guts to hang in

there.

He asked me to help him. But I was completely a creature of the House side of

Capitol Hill - the Senate side was foreign territory and, I hate to admit it, I

didn't even have the vaguest idea of who this Bobby Baker, the Senate's

imperial potentate, was.

I told Hill that his only way out was to expose Baker publicly, to get the story out

- once it was public, Baker could not afford to retaliate. I advised Hill to file

suit against Baker, laying out all the sordid details in the complaint, and once

he had served Baker, to give me the complaint papers and I'd see that

the media on the Hill got their hands on copies.

He did and I did - and I now found myself a potential target, not only of Baker's

but of the media as well, but that's another story. I was able to get

only two reporters to write the story - the late Clark Mohlenhoff, one of the

best investigative reporters in Washington, and one other whose name I

don't recall.

For the most part, the Washington press corps kept the lid on the story - until the

late Bob Humphrey, then the GOP Senate leadership's spokesman, an

incredibly gifted strategist and a mentor, asked me to tell the story to the late

Delaware Republican Sen. John Williams, a crusader for good

government and a crackerjack of an investigator.

Sen. Williams asked me to introduce him to Hill and I did. They got together with

some Senate investigators for the GOP minority and Hill told them the whole

story, including the part played by Vice President Johnson. Williams

got his committee to launch an investigation and the lid came off.

A few days later, the attorney general, Bobby Kennedy, called five of

Washington's top reporters into his office and told them it was now open season

on Lyndon Johnson. It's OK, he told them, to go after the story they

were ignoring out of deference to the administration.

And from that point on until the events in Dallas, Lyndon Baines Johnson's future

looked as if it included a sudden end to his political career and a few years

in the slammer. The Kennedys had their knives out and sharpened for him

and were determined to draw his political blood - all of it.

In the Senate, the investigation into the Baker case was moving quickly ahead.

Even the Democrats were cooperating, thanks to the Kennedys, and an

awful lot of really bad stuff was being revealed - until Nov. 22, 1963.

By Nov. 23, all Democrat cooperation suddenly stopped. Lyndon would serve a

term and a half in the White House instead of the slammer, the Baker

investigation would peter out and Bobby Baker would serve a short sentence and

go free. Dallas accomplished all of that.

Sometimes I wonder: If I had not met Hill and convinced him to go public with the

story, and the Bobby Baker case and Lyndon's part in it had not come out as

a result, would Dallas not have happened? I don't like to think about that.

And that's why I am convinced that McClellan is on to something. I hope he

persists. There's an incredible amount of sordid government corruption that

needs to be aired in public. As McClellan says, it's about time that the

American people learned the truth about the death of John Fitzgerald

Kennedy.

And a lot more.

The vending machine industry connection to period Democratic Party members - which also roped in Grant Stockdale and George Smathers - should be examined multilaterally for its relation to Kennedy and Johnson partisans.

If people were researching Joe Kennedy liquor importing during Prohibition, I have a feeling that this is a related racket that started coeval with liquor, and became a larger-base infiltration of DP members after Prohibition faded out.

It's the kind of monopoly business that went hand-in-glove with growing mob influence on unions - so vending machines have their place in study of the social continuum 1920-1963.

Thanks, Michael. Another avenue for hard to find books is sometimes Ebay. I was bidding for a copy of Gary Shaw's and Larry Harris's book "Cover Up" the other day on Ebay. It started at $40/copy and I got outbid at the closing sale of $53 plus $3.50 shipping. Still cheap compared to the $150 or $190 I was seeing other places.
