In October of 2003, attorney and authored Barr McClellan published the book Blood, Money & Power: How LBJ Killed JFK. In the book McClellan claims that former US Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson and the managing partner of the law firm Clark, Thomas and Winters, Edward Clark, were involved in both the planning and later cover-up of the assassination of former United States President John F. Kennedy. McClellan goes on to also named Malcolm Wallace as having been one of the assassins, and alleges that the murder of President Kennedy was financed by several Texas oil millionaires; such as Clint Murchison and Haroldson L. Hunt. McClellan book claims that attorney Edward Clark was paid $2 million for his work.
McClellan claims that the assassination of President Kennedy allowed the US oil depletion allowance to be kept at 27.5%. History confirms that the oil allowance remained unchanged during the entire Johnson presidency. Which according to McClellan book resulted in a saving of over $100 million to the Texas/US oil industry. Soon after President Johnson left White House, President Richard Nixon lowered the depletion allowance to just 15%.
SO JUST WHO IS BARR MCCLELLAN?
Barr McClellan had attended college at the University of Texas at Austin, and it was while he was student that McClellan became a strong supporter of then United States President John F. Kennedy. Shortly after McClellan passed the Texas bar he began working as a licensed attorney, working for another fellow Texan....the United States President Lyndon Baines Johnson. He initially began his work with the US National Labor Relations Board, but in 1964 transitioned over to the US Federal Power Commission.
In 1966 McClellan joined the Texas law firm of Clark, Thomas and Winters, which was headquartered back in Austin, Texas. At that time, the firm was run by the managing partner Edward Clark, and its senior partners Sam Winters, Don Thomas and Frank Denius. Their practice maintained a close associated with the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson, as well as the StatTexas Democratic Party. McClellan's work at the firm included advising on overall political strategy, the use of campaign contributions, media issues and local and national labor disputes.
In 1972 Barr McClellan was made a full partner of Clark, Thomas and Winters, and it was only at this junction of career that he was told about the illegal activities that his firm was engaged in. Partner John Cofer explained how the partners dealt with criminal activity: "In short, we helped plan crimes and keep the clients out of trouble." Soon afterwards he discovered that one of the firm's partners, Edward Clark, had been personally involved in planning the assassination of United States President John F. Kennedy.
McClellan eventually resigned from the law firm after a dispute with Edward Clark. In 1977 he established his own law practice. Some of Barr's notable cases included litigation for exploding Ford Pintos, tobacco-caused expenses on the health care system, and the licensing & regulation of cell phones. He also obtained a Supreme Court ruling in favor of protecting parklands from numerous freeway systems.
However, it should also be noted that Barr McClellan the author is probably more well known for being the father of Scott McClellan and Mark McClellan. Sons who like their father, also went to work in the presidential administration of another Texan; with son Scott McClellan serving as President Bush's current White House press secretary, and Mark McClellan serving as President Bush's Commissioner to the US Food and Drug Administration.
WHERE'S WAS GEORGE?
Edward Gordon Hooker, who was former United States President George H. W. Bush’s roommate at Phillips Andover, Yale University as well as during their pilot training for the United States Navy. Hooker was also the first cousin of Mrs. John D. Rockefeller III. Hooker's mother Cartwright "Betty" Hooker was in fact the sister of Blanchette Ferry Hooker Rockefeller (who married John D. Rockefeller III), and Betty Hooker married Dimitri von Mohrenschildt in 1936.
Dimitri von Mohrenschildt was the older brother of George de Mohrenschildt, Lee Harvey Oswald's best friend while he was living in Dallas, Texas. Shortly after the assassination of United States President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations obtains from George de Mohrenschildt's personal effects, a signed photograph of Lee Harvey Oswald inscribed "To my friend George from Lee Oswald 5/IV/63" and "Copyright G de M." It is a copy of the now very famous photograph of Lee Harvey Oswald holding a rifle and newspaper, which now we know was taken by de Mohrenschildt.

Additionally FBI records show that former President George H. W. Bush (who is the father of the current US President George W. Bush), called in and gave a report in reference to a possible suspect involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. (see below)
His report clearly shows that George W. H. Bush was in Dallas, Texas for most of the day and night of November 22, 1963. However, strangely the former President appears to try and implicate a rival political activist by the name of James Milton Parrott in the Kennedy assassination.
SOME ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS
Why has former President George H.W. Bush continually tired to keep the records of that FBI telephone call confidential? Why does Bush claim to not even remember making such an important call? Why did wait to call in his warning to the FBI after President Kennedy was assassinated, if he had really thought James Parrott was going to be a serious threat to President Kennedy in Houston... the previous day? Why are all the former President's sources, of this hearsay related information, still unknown to American citizens? Who told Bush this, if anyone actually did? Or perhaps the documented report's sole purpose was to furnish the former President with an alibi and plausible denial?
Almost twenty years later in 1981, when then US President Ronald Reagan is nearly assassinated by John W. Hinckley, (which would have made then Vice President George H. W. Bush the President of the United States of America). However, this time it is the Vice President's own son Neil Mallon Bush, who is personally connected to the assassin's family. Neil Bush had to cancel his dinner engagement with the shooter's brother... Scott Hinckley.
It has now been more than forty years since President Kennedy was murder on the sunny November day in Dallas, Texas; and yet there seems to be more lies surrounding his death than truths. In 1963, the then young CBS reporter Dan Rather makes his career launching broadcast with his coverage of the Kennedy Assassination. Amazingly Dan Rather marked the beginning of his long broadcasting career the very same way that he chose to end it; by lying to the American public. As Dan Rather repeatily tells a traumatized and mourning nation that he was able to see President Kennedy's head move violently forward on the Zapruder film. (listen to the attached)
Forty years, numerous Congressional committee "investigations," a countless number of books, and even several big budget Hollywood films; and yet Americans are no closer to the truth than they were on that horrific day in November of 1963.
