–  The Bottom Line  –

The more I learn about LBJ and the more we witness the ‘fruits of his labor‘,  I can say without reservation, that on November 22, 1963 the wrong man was killed in Dallas.   Not a nice thing to say but as so often the truth is very hard to accept.

We all know about LBJ’s ‘Great Society’ and The Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 that has all but destroyed the majority of the Black Community and the spirit of American Capitalism.  And of course there’s Vietnam.  Over 50,000 young men killed and all LBJ could do was step down and enjoy his pension…

Well here’s another LBJ factoid that is often missing from the history books.

As we saw in 2013, the IRS has been deeply involved in politics as it relates to dealing with conservative tax-exempt organizations. This was all LBJ’s doing. We got into this mess when in 1954 a law was rammed through Congress by then-Senator Johnson to restrict churches and other non-profit organizations from speaking freely on the topic of politics. The following is from the IRS:

“In 1954, Congress approved an amendment by Sen. Lyndon Johnson to prohibit 501(c)(3) organizations, which includes charities and churches, from engaging in any political campaign activity. To the extent Congress has revisited the ban over the years, it has in fact strengthened the ban. The most recent change came in 1987 when Congress amended the language to clarify that the prohibition also applies to statements opposing candidates.”

This so-called ban is a direct violation of the First Amendment. The First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law. . . .” In 1954, Congress made a law prohibiting churches from speaking out on political issues and endorsing or opposing candidates. The logic is simple. Since Congress passed the law, then Congress violated the Constitution. This makes the law null and void.
