Johnson Sworn In

with 5 comments



Taken on Air Force One just hours after JFK’s assassination by Kennedy’s official white house photographer, Cecil W. Stoughton, the photo clearly showed the absence of JFK in the intimate quarters of the Air Force One. Although LBJ is the focus of the ceremony, grief-stricken Jackie seems to be more the focus of the picture. Jackie Kennedy joined the ceremony last-minute and still had her husband’s blood stains on her skirt. Stoughton adjusted the frame to cut the stains out. The photo was released to the public very quickly to reassure the public that Johnson was in control of the situation, while the actual assassination photos weren’t out for a few days.

  2. There is another photograph from this series, most notably called ‘The Wink’. I don’t see why it was left out. Please look at it on this link.

  3. “The Wink” is usually suppressed, because it rightly suggests that Democrats killed JFK, which they did. The winking man, Thomas, was behind changing the motorcade route and having it published in the paper, so Oswald knew where to be.

  5. We would also like to express that most individuals that find themselves
    without health insurance can be students, self-employed and people who are unemployed.

    More than half with the uninsured are under the age of Thirty-five.
    They do not feel they are wanting health insurance because they are young
    and healthy. Their own income is frequently spent on housing, food, as well as entertainment.
    A lot of people that do represent the working class either 100
    % or part-time are not made available insurance by means of their jobs so they proceed without due to the rising expense of health insurance in the country. Thanks for the thoughts you write about through this site.
