Was LBJ involved in the Kennedy assassination?

First off, because the left would love to jump on that catchy headline, at no point on tonight's show did Glenn ever say he believed any of the conspiracy theories surrounding Kennedy. In fact, he was clear in his interview with Brad Meltzer that Oswald did it. Ok, now onto the story...

This week marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The event was not only a national tragedy, but it has famously been the source of multiple conspiracy theories that have been immortalized in modern pop culture. Was there more to JFK's assassination than has been revealed? Was there a second shooter? Was then-Vice President Lyndon Johnson a part of a massive cover up? How about the CIA?

On tonight's show, Glenn talked to two guests with two very different viewpoints on the JFK assassination.

Roger Stone wrote a book connecting LBJ to the assassination.

Stone said that on the eve of Kennedy's trip to Dallas, LBJ was facing political ruin and potential prison time. In fact, President Kennedy's secretary Evelyn Lincoln claims that JFK told her that Lyndon Johnson would not be on the ticket when he ran for reelection.

"(LBJ) was greedy, he was corrupt, he was ambitious," Stone said. "In 1963 he was a man staring into the abyss. He had two major scandals threatening his place on the ticket."

Stone, a former aide to Nixon, claims that Nixon also believed LBJ was responsible. Nixon recognized Jack Ruby, the man who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, as a man introduced to him "as one of Lyndon Johnson's boys".

"Nixon says in the Watergate tapes that the Warren Commission is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated. Nixon is in Dallas the day of the assassination, and he is actually leaving Dallas as JFK is arriving. When he gets to New York, he hears on the radio in his cab that Kennedy has been shot. When he gets to his apartment, the doorman tells him that the president is dead," Stone explains.

"He goes to his apartment. He calls J. Edgar Hoover," he continued. "So he says Edgar, was it one of those right wing kooks? 'No,' Hoover says, 'Dick, it was a communist.'"

" Well, Nixon believes that for 48 hours, until he sees Jack Ruby blow away Oswald on national television, and then he says I know that guy. In fact, we know from records that are cited in my book that Lyndon Johnson as a congressman asked Congressman Richard Nixon to hire Jack Ruby as a part-time informant for the House un-American Activities Committee, and he is introduced to Nixon in 1947 as a Johnson man, a man Lyndon would like on the payroll. So I think it speaks to why Nixon says the Warren Commission is a hoax."

Watch Stone lay out his theory below:

Glenn said he would hand off Stone's book to a friend of his who likes to uncover the truth in history and bust myths.

In the next segment, Glenn spoke with Brad Meltzer, author of History Decoded, at Dealey Plaza. Meltzer had a much different opinion about what happened that day in Dallas.

"This is literally where the seeds are planted. And we all know once you plant a seed of doubt in someone’s mind, especially America’s mind, it’s almost impossible to uproot," Meltzer said.

First off, both Glenn and Meltzer were clear in their belief that Lee Harvey Oswald was the shooter. And Glenn emphasized that all of the early reporting named Communism as Oswald's motivation.

"Let’s just put blame where it really does belong, a guy named Jack Ruby, right?" Meltzer said. "If Jack Ruby, and listen, there are questions to be asked, right? What is Oswald doing for two years in Russia that nobody knows about, two years unaccounted for? How does Jack Ruby get past an entire police station full of policeman who at that moment should be guarding this guy like he’s the ultimate person, you know, to be protected on the earth. And in that moment, Jack Ruby robbed history of the truth, because the only man who knows what’s going on is Lee Harvey Oswald."

Meltzer also said the Kennedy family's insistence of secrecy with the autopsy obscured the facts and led to the growth of conspiracy theories.

So where do all the theories of who really masterminded the assassination come from? Fear.

"It’s the big question, right? That’s the one. It’s the grand conspiracy of all. Fifty years we’ve been asking this question. What’s interesting is when you look at the 50 years of answers," Meltzer said.

"So in the 1960s, you know who we thought killed JFK? We said it was the communists. We said it was the Russians. It was the Cubans. It was our great enemy at the height of the Cold War. We also said it was the establishment. It was the 60s, distaste for the establishment. It was rich Texas millionaires who did it. They’re the ones who did him in."

"If you look historically in the 70s though, a time of Watergate and Vietnam, you know who killed JFK? It was our own government. The CIA did it."

"And now if you look in the 80s, the height of the Godfather movies and giving way to Scarface, who killed JFK? It was the mob. It was the Mafia."

"So decade by decade, if you want to know who killed JFK, it’s whoever America is most afraid of at that moment in time."

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
