  1. “If you can convince the lowest white man, he’s better than the bestColored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. He//, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”

    — Lyndon B. Johnson

    1. He lamented his opponent’s embrace of the Southern Strategy, never realizing it would still be relevant in US politics decades after his death.

  2. _As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered them, _*_“See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come._*_ Matthew 24:3‭-‬14_

    *_“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near._*_ Luke 21:20_
    *_“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place,(…)_*_ Matthew 24:15_
    _Forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation. And by smooth words he will turn to godlessness those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will be strong and take action. Daniel 11:31‭-‬32_
    _And from the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Daniel 12:11_
    *_(…)then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short._*_ Matthew 24:16-22_

    *_“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other._*_ Matthew 24:29‭-‬31_

    *_Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown._*_ Revelation 3:10-11_

    _But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as indeed the rest of mankind do, who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose from the dead, so also God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep through Jesus. For we say this to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who remain, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17_

    *_“But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming._*_ Matthew 24:36‭-‬42_

    _Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”
    2 Peter 3:3-4_

    *_“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”_*_ John 3:16-21_

    Repent now of all your sins (go away from all sins) and abide in the Savior and Lord Jesus the Christ (Yeshua, the Messiah) with all your heart, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

  3. Lyndon Johnson wasn’t lying when he said be voting next 100 yrs for Democrats.
    1957
    Nickname he gave that bill was interesting 🤔

  4. Some years back, I was a judge at the LBJ library for a students essay project. During that time, Hurricane Sandy destroyed much of my home, including my book collection. Mark Updegrove was very generous to re-send a copy of his book Indomitable Will, which he even signed. I will always appreciate that, and am very happy to see he continues to represent this wonderful library.

  5. The legacy of LBJ is broken black families. Encouraging black mothers not to get married and provide a stable household is evil.

    1. @Bill Rodriguez Biden is a segregationist neither is LBJ, LBJ literally signed the civil rights bill into law

  6. Just look at how lovely and polite, and so good you are.. The virtue is through the ceiling, it just oozes goodness. So let me tell you what Ronald Reagan told us about you virtue, and intent,,, ,Ronald Regan warned us in 1964, about todays Democrats. He made it clear, that they would use the mantle of ”Good” and virtue, to peddle their lies. This one question dominates all the evil they push. ” But,..What has the Democrats actually done for Black People ? ”.

  7. Same dude who implemented policies that gave just enough to where impoverished black people would have just enough to get by and not make them want to better their situation

  8. I appreciated this – I am sorry – I did not appreciate the interviewer’s style. It seemed too causal for me – someone of the LBJ age.

  9. Trump was right basically in everything and under amazing pressure leading country brilliantly!

    Best leader by far!

  10. I was almost going to get evicted and this program saved me Intellectweb s thanks for being there for me team

  11. As a mere layman:
    Rome wasn’t built in one day, and you certainly don’t need a degree to see LBJ was a product of the time and environment that he grew up in.
    Of course he had to have feet on both sides of the door and talk sh*t with powerful peers of that same environment to get it through, Lincoln did much of the same yet nobody’s bringing THAT up 🤣
    At least he signed the damn lot, so as far as U.S civil rights go, Johnson gave America what it was owed and has got nothing to be sorry for, regardless how tf he played the game.

    Practically speaking Lyndon did what he initially set out for AND more.
    Yeah, America has had issues since then, just because he signed the whole lot doesn’t mean everything was INSTANTLY gonna be perfect.
    Once it’s made law, it’s every citizen’s duty (by law) to recognize, uphold and improve on from there on out.
    Complacency can easily do more harm than ill intent.

    And as for Vietnam, the rule book wasn’t entirely set in stone yet, but he definitely misread it/was misled (scholars differ to this day), and that’s on him.

  12. This comment section is honestly just sad to read.
    I’m a hard line conservative, but some of you who come on here and say that Lyndon Johnson is pretty much responsible for all of the issues we have today are beyond idiotic and need to read into nuances a bit more. You’re no better than those on the left here who call Trump a fascist and a dictator (who are just as equally incorrect, but that’s a completely different argument).
    I know the whole boogeyman with a lot of conservative and conservative organizations nowadays (TPUSA, PragerU) is that of “Big Government”.
    A lot of them just adapt this “don’t tread on Me” mantra of wanting the government out of their lives and the lives of private businesses.
    According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the US federal government spent $184 billion in 1968, the last year of Lyndon’s administration.
    Fifty years later, the federal government spent $4.497 trillion under the Trump administration, and I support the man, mind you.
    Big Government happened like the slow course of a football game over the last few decades.
    It’s simple, really.
    Big Government is here because the American family and civil society has completely fallen down.
    When you don’t have families to take care of the most vulnerable members of our society, that’s where governments come into play in massive form.
    Now, where some of LBJ’s policies responsible for this? Certainly and we need to address that, but it’s a huge exaggeration to say him and his administration is the reason for big government.
    One of LBJ’s strengths that isn’t nearly discussed that much on both sides of the aisle that we really need to start talking about is the ability to hold the country together in a time of complete and utter turmoil and grief, especially since it’s clear our current POTUS could never do that. LBJ certainly didn’t have the talent of speech that his predecessor did, but he consistently spoke clearly and consciously with powerful rhetoric and avoided blame of specific groups, be it racial or otherwise. I’m not particularly fond of the man personally or politically, but there’s a certain sense of unity and togetherness whenever he gives a speech that isn’t to be found in many democratic politicians nowadays.
