Editorial Reviews

Review

This was the first book to tell of Madeleine Duncan Brown's serving as President Lyndon Baines Johnson's mistress for over 21 years. It also discusses the meeting at one of Clint Murchison's houses, off Preston Ave. in North Dallas, where 25 men met in secret to discuss the coverup of the killing of JFK that was to take place the next day. It's a wonderful love story, but most importantly is a major clue into JFK's assassination. Once you read it, you will be absolutely convinced that you are very close to knowing the real facts about JFK's killing. --Robert Gaylon Ross, Sr.

RIE, LLC is the publisher of a number of books about the assassination of Lincoln, JFK, RFK & MLK. --Robert Gaylon Ross, Sr.

It was intriguing and very interesting.

My husband said it was a good book, but it was more of a love story than historical.

The author is no word beater when it comes to writing skills, but she obviously knew President Lyndon Johnson very well. No one reading this book could not take her seriously. Madeleine Duncan Brown was part of history. She was indeed a secret lover of LBJ. In fact, she bore and raised his only son. The most interesting passage in the book takes place on Thursday night in Dallas, Texas, November 21, 1963, at the home of Clint Murchison. Read the book for the details of that night as Johnson whispers in the author's ear, "After tomorrow those goddamn Kennedys will never emparrass me again--that's no threat--that's a promise." A must read for JFK assassination researchers.

Yet another book that adds to the evidence that Lyndon Johnson and his Texas backers were behind the Kennedy assassination. Yes, you will learn more than you ever wanted to know about Johnson's bedroom skills. You will also catch a glimpse at some of the people who hated JFK and wanted him dead.

This book is also a reminder that there were plenty of people in Dallas who came forward and told their stories about that day in November, knowing that it was the right thing to do. Perhaps one day America will have the courage and face the fact that Johnson took office in a coup d'etat with the suppoert of high government officials.

I purchased "Texas in the Morning" directly from Madeleine Brown at her home in Dallas. She was kind enough to invite myself and the Senior Class of 2000 from Roberts High School in Roberts, Montana to her home for lunch. Madeleine was a very gracious host, seemly honest and forthright. I read her book thoroughly on the airplane on the return trip home. It was intriguing and very interesting. I question her having so much patience, but not her commitment to both this relationship and her book. An excellent book for a person with an open mind!

Madeleine Duncan Brown was the most beloved mistress of Lyndon Johnson for 21 years from 1948 until 1969. Madeleine is one of the truth tellers and keys to understanding the ugly reality of the JFK assassination. She had a son Steven Mark with Lyndon in 1950 (he died in 1990). Madeleine lived from 1925 to 2002 and was madly in love with Lyndon Johnson when she wrote this book 24 years after the death of LBJ. She makes some BLOCKBUSTER revelations in this book, such as:

In the night of December 31, 1963, just 6 weeks after the JFK assassination, Madeleine asked Lyndon Johnson:
"Lyndon, you know that a lot of people believe you had something to do with President Kennedy's assassination."
He shot up out of bed and began pacing and waving his arms screaming like a madman. I was scared!
"That's bull___, Madeleine Brown!" he yelled. "Don't tell me you believe that ____!"
"Of course not." I answered meekly, trying to cool his temper.
"It was Texas oil and those %$%& renegade intelligence bastards in Washington." [said Lyndon Johnson, the new president.] [Texas in the Morning, p. 189] [LBJ told this to Madeleine on 1/1/64 in the locally famous Driskill Hotel, Austin, TX in room #254. They spent New Year's Eve `64 together here (12/31/63). Room #254 was the room that LBJ used to have rendevous' with his girlfriends - today it is known as the LBJ Room, and rents for $600-1,000/night as a Presidential suite at the Driskell; located on the Mezzanine Level.]

What Lyndon Johnson did not tell Madeleine was that Texas Oil (read H.L. Hunt, Clint Murchison, Sr) and the CIA (especially the Gen Ed Lansdale, Operation 40/Operation Mongoose crowd) were murdering John Kennedy with the full knowledge, approval and participation of VP Lyndon Johnson.

I couldn't wait to read this and,overall, it turned out to be a pretty fascinating picture of LBJ and his mistress. My only complaint was how poorly it was written. There was often a confusing lack of clarity...weak transition between ideas and thoughts that Brown remembered. As she wrote of different incidents, she would suddenly recall another idea/person without a transition between thoughts she was discussing, making the passage difficult to follow. This could have been improved often with a simple word or phrase, such as "John Doe, previously mentioned as..." or such words as "finally, therefore, earlier..." etc. I found myself stopping & re-reading passages to make sense of the statements.

In spite of this, though, I enjoyed returning to those days and recommend it to anyone interested in the Kennedy-Johnson era, if you can decipher some of the segue-challenged writings.

I enjoyed this book very much--I am willing to give Ms. Brown the benefit of the doubt, and I do believe her story is fairly accurate. I did find her descriptions of LBJ in the bedroom pretty cringe-inducing. Firstly, because it reads like an over-the-top romance novel, and secondly, well, because it's Lyndon Johnson, a person I have come to detest. He should have gone to prison for life when he was a young man, rather than to be allowed to rampage like an insane bull through his career of destroying lives and murdering whoever got in his way.

Hopefully, someday, people with his personality problems will be identified as teenagers and helped. Also, hopefully, they will be watched closely and won't have the opportunity to get away with the horrible crimes that LBJ did.

It was kind of difficult to gag my way through the descriptions of his bedroom antics, but the rest of the book makes it worthwhile.
