ROCKWELL: Well, good morning. This is the Lew Rockwell Show. And what an honor, what a thrill to have on the show this morning as our guest, Mr. Roger Stone. Roger is, of course, a legendary political consultant/strategist for many important Republican politicians, Nixon, especially Reagan, Bob Dole, many others. Although, I'm glad to say he's recently joined the Libertarian Party, rather than the Republican Party. And he has a wonderful blog, a wonderful Twitter feed, a wonderful website. We going to, of course, link to all that.
But, you know, Roger, I remember the late Gerhart Niemeyer, who was a professor of political science at Notre Dame, being asked — this was back in Cold War days — why did the Russians bother to have all these lying slogans and lying publications and lying speeches and so forth, how could it have any effect. And he said, well, constant lies have a very demoralizing and a depressive effect on people when they're not answered. So we've, of course, had many official lies about the Kennedy assassination, not to mention, of course, a tremendous number of other subjects. But in your new book, The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ, you're speaking the truth, you're telling the truth, you've learned the truth, and you're communicating it to people. And it really lifts the heart to know the truth of this horrendous event that, of course, still has many bad effects. But led you to write this book?
