Richard Russell & LBJ November 28, 1963 (WH k6311_06_16) White House Telephone President Lyndon Johnson pressures Sen. Richard Russell to serve as a member of the Warren Commission to investigate the then-recent assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Russell objects strongly to serving on the Commission, but Johnson has already announced that he would be member of the committee without even telling him beforehand. Note: This is a partial recording. The first approximately ten minutes are included here. The quality of much of the second part of the tape is inferior and hard to understand. It is somewhat hard to hear Sen. Russell throughout the entire conversation. (Photo: Richard Russell and Lyndon Johnson, December 1957.)
Part 1 of 2. Friday, November 29, 1963 -- New President Lyndon B. Johnson talks over the telephone with Georgia Senator Richard B. Russell Jr. This interesting phone call puts on full display the type of strong-arming tactics that President Johnson employed quite often as the 36th US President, as LBJ can be heard pretty much forcing the very hesitant and disgruntled Senator Russell to serve as one of the seven members of the "President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy" (aka: The Warren Commission).

Sen. Clinton Anderson & John Connally & LBJ September 24, 1964 (8:50 PM) (WH 6409_15_5688) White House Telephone President Lyndon Johnson and Senator Clint Anderson discuss the Medicare provisions of the Social Security Bill pending in Congress, including Sen. Wilbur Mill's position. After telling Anderson a dirty joke to illustrate a point, the two men also talk about health policy, a pending Foreign Aid Bill, Johnson's upcoming trip to El Paso, TX, and general campaign strategy for the upcoming 1964 election against Barry Goldwater. Texas Governor John Connally, who was then meeting with Johnson, also talked to Senator Anderson. (Photo: Lyndon Johnson and Clinton Anderson at the 1960 Democratic Convention.)

The infamous "Daisy" TV ad that Johnson ran against Goldwater in the 1964 US presidential campaign. It was shown only once, but that was enough to inflict significant damage on Goldwater. I'd say this was an enormous piece of irony, because it's intent was to portray Goldwater as this unbalanced lunatic intent on dragging the US into war. In reality, LBJ was one of the most unbalanced and mentality skewed presidents we've ever had, and his lying about the Gulf of Tonkin DID drag us into the war. Along with McNamara, he continued to lie about the war, including fighting in Cambodia, US war causalties and our general progress. History has shown that the man with true principles and ethics was Goldwater, not LBJ.
President Lyndon B. Johnson Address before the General Assembly of the United Nations December 17, 1963 ''The greatest of human problems, and the greatest of our common tasks, is to keep the peace and to save the future. All that we have built in the wealth of nations, and all that we plan to do toward a better life for all, will be in vain if our feet should slip, or our vision falter, and our hopes ended in another worldwide war. If there is one commitment more than any other that I would like to leave with you today, it is my unswerving commitment to the keeping and to the strengthening of the peace. Peace is a journey of a thousand miles, and it must be taken one step at a time. We know what we want: The United States wants to prevent the dissemination of nuclear weapons to nations not now possessing them; The United States wants to press on with arms control and reduction; The United States wants to cooperate with all the members of this Organization to conquer everywhere the ancient enemies of mankind--hunger, and disease and ignorance; The United States wants sanity, and security, and peace for all, and above all. President Kennedy, I am sure, would regard as his best memorial the fact that in his 3 years as President the world became a little safer and the way ahead became a little brighter.'' On August 2, 1964 North Vietnamese torpedo boats attacked the destroyer USS Maddox in the Gulf of Tonkin. August 4, a second North Vietnamese PT boat attack was reported on ...

Gerald Ford & LBJ December 20, 1963 (WH k6312_11_12) White House Telephone Democratic President Lyndon Johnson calls future president Gerald R. Ford to ask him to support a larger monetary amount for a Foreign Aid Appropriations Bill that the Congress was then considering. Ford, a Republican congressman at the time, hedges on giving Johnson his assurances on the bill and in return brings up how important the Republicans consider a Wheat Amendment (to discriminate against the USSR in wheat sales) to the appropriations bill. Johnson feels that such an amendment would only antagonize the Soviet Union, and he refuses to consider it. This conversation illustrates LBJs involved style in dealing with the Congress. (Photo: Gerald R. Ford.)

-Part 2- Katharine Graham & LBJ December 1963 (WH k6312_01_19) White House Telephone President Lyndon Johnson talks with Washington Post editor Katharine Graham. After he initially flirts with her, she asks if he would be willing to speak at a gathering of newspaper editors. Johnson then goes on to talk about a speech he had recently given before Congress, and the falling out he had had with John Kennedy's speechwriter Ted Sorenson over it. Johnson in particular did not want only to eulogize the recently assassinated Kennedy, but also to use the speech to lay out his own agenda, including the promotion of the Civil Rights Act. Johnson gets worked up at the thought of the Congress not working on this bill, and instead taking long vacations and doing nothing. President Nixon and FBI director J. Edgar Hoover had a much different opinion of Mrs. Graham, as can be heard at: www.youtube.com (NIXON TAPES: "Old Bag" Editor & Pentagon Papers (Hoover)) (Photo: President Lyndon Baines Johnson on the telephone.)
