  1. Can anyone cite a federal or state election in the 20th or 21st century where mass in-person voter fraud affected the outcome? If it was prevalent like the GQP insists you’d think there would have been at least 1 recorded instance in history.

    1. @Bud Fudlacker every time Trump opens his trap he leaves no doubt as to his mental incapacity. If you are blind to that, then you are certainly not to be credited with any sort of ability to discern anyone else’s mental acuity.

    2. @psycobleach46 tullis Little sheep are you afraid to watch Bidens townhall????? Like i said that is not even up for debate as any rational person can see Biden is barely hanging on mentally!!!!!!!

    3. @Simon Fairall Actually though if you even just watch Bidens townhall you would know that there is no way Biden is ok mentally!!!!!!!! When you don’t know what you are talking about you might consider not giving your opinions!!!!??????!!!!!!????!!!???

    4. @UCLsfd_dXib1F6lfCizxxfOg Just watch Bidens townhall!!!!! Its not just pronouncing words!!! You need to watch the whole townhall just do that and then say Biden is ok mentally!!!!! You wouldn’t say that after watching the townhall!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. That was powerful and moving! I am in tears! No one is free unless everyone, EVERYONE, is free!! Thank you!

    1. @Stefan Nam
      Apparently you know nothing about the real history of LBJ. You should have been alive during that time to actually know something about it cupcake. Democrat morons have attempted to rewrite the history of they been aided by the press that it had their head stuck up the Democrat party’s rectal cavity since the 60s.

    2. @Casey Creason So the “Southern White Evangelical Christians Working Class” who were Democrats back then and who are now the Republicans rewrote the history?? Amazing!! LoL!!

  3. Kim Mulkey & Luci Baines Johnson have almost the same accent . Ms. Mulkey is from Louisiana & more humble roots .

  4. What happened to speeches like this?! This is America, so beautiful everything she said. You can just see how corrupt everything has become when you hear her talk.

    1. @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 This is Lucy Baines Johnson – not Joe Biden. Get ahold of yourself, man…

    2. @Tessmage Tessera I mean, if it’s conservatives against liberals, you will lose. Go play your adult computer games. You have zero combat experience

  5. Thank you, Lucy Baines Johnson! THAT, my folks, is a patriot…not the people that invited and joined an insurrection.

    1. @Zaynab bint Al-Harith you don’t know if she is racist or not, and I support what they stand for, VOTING RIGHTS. Her and her father.

    2. *Joe Biden and the Democrats have Driven America into the Ground in Record Time.*

    3. @psycobleach46 tullis
      Intetesting… Thomas Jefferson was for freedom, wrote a draft outlawing slavery, but he is a racist; yet LBJ used the n-word so often you can power Hoover Dam for a year and he’s a hero

    4. @psycobleach46 tullis voting rights aren’t being taken away. Democrats are just being kept from cheating. If you weren’t being kept from cheating, you wouldn’t be so upset. You liberals have exposed yourself. You’re easy to read.

  6. No Turnip family member could say that about their father/grandfather 56 years later. That is a fact….

    1. @Trumpocalypse Barry Goldwater and his rhetoric is my reasoning on why the South was solid for a long while.

    2. @zu0832 *- WAR POWERS are Granted to the Congress by the Constitution, not the President*

      *if you’re trying to look smart, it isn’t working*

    3. @Charles Ingram : Goldwater was a terrible person in a lot of ways, but at least he respected the Constitution enough to tell Nixon that he had crossed the line, and that he should resign or be impeached. Today’s Republicans have zero respect for the Constitution.

  7. These people wonderful people laid the ground work, leaving their children to pave it in cement for their children. God Bless you sweet lady.

  8. Better yet “What would your father say about traitors in his own party like Mansion and Si(enema) bought off by corporate and the GOP?” Funny, I think I hear rumbling under ground.

  9. She is one impressive person. Her father, if he hadn’t been sidetracked into Vietnam by the Harvard boys would have been the greatest 20th century president of them all.

    1. @stephen ashton not Harvard per se, but the corporate interests that came from it. Johnson was a negotiator, affording parties to forward the MIC in se Asia was a barter to pass civil legislation. Studying the Johnson tapes you can really see this deal come to pass. When he realized into his term the ramifications, of the inability to control those interests, it shut him down.

    2. LBJ was a very decent man. I was a schoolboy when he was prez. I pity schoolkids today, who have had Agent Orange Trump as an example for the past 4 years. He taught all the wrong things.

    3. @stephen ashton Read the history of the time or shut up, kid. Your question proves you don’t know anything about it.

    4. @Ken Albertsen He presided over the high point of democratic governance, passing the Voting Rights and Civil Rights acts, Medicare and Medicaid and so much else. And he did it by a combination of skill and willingness to get tough with the Congress.

    5. @stephen ashton: “…and gave us Cruz and Hawley, huh “? Hmmm: What about DeSantis?
      On the other side of that coin, Barack Hussein Obama as Editor of the Harvard Law Review for a couple of years and George W. Bush are also Harvard Alumni. Just Saying

  10. Dang, she’s good. In her 70’s, but she hasn’t forgotten the 60’s. How different would it be if Johnson hadn’t allowed the Vietnam War to get in the way? Our foreign policy has always been unmatched to our domestic policy.

  11. God bless you, Luci, for standing strong for freedom and supporting ‘true’ democracy for all Americans.

    1. Did LBJ speack from the heart when his used many variations of the “N” word,depending on who he was talking to? Guess racism is so ingrained in the Democrats party you don’t even know how racist you all really are.
