LBJ Ducked Before First Shot at JFK
Why can't we see LBJ?

Kennedy Assassination: Proof JBJ Knew

 LBJ was cropped out of the Altgens Photo for the news paper.

Secret Service Agent Youngblood and the driver were in the front seat
:LBJ should have been visible, sitting next to Lady Bird

Left photo (from years before): LBJ often sat up high to be visible to voters.
This is how the 6 foot 4 inch LBJ would sit in a car - a tall Texan.

But LBJ was sitting farther down, near to his wife in height,
with Texas Senator Ralph Yarborough waving. 

While on Houston Street, approaching Elm, LBJ is on a walkie talkie

LBJ was 6 foot 4 inches, yet already slouching down,
shorter than Lady Bird who was 5 foot 6 inches.

Here is that position today on Houston Street, approaching the Texas School Book Depository

Lady Bird is visible in the car, but LBJ has already ducked out of view in the Altgens photo.

LBJ ducks just before the first shot at Kennedy - before anyone else does
LBJ may have ducked completely, or is crouching and outlined in red.
Either way, LBJ's face should have been as visible as Lady Bird's (blue) and taller.
Secret Service Agent Rufus Youngblood in green is in the right front seat, in front of LBJ.
Driver Joe Henry Rich (Texas Highway Patrol) is in brown, and Senator Yarborough in yellow.

Lady Bird Johnson, next to LBJ, is still sitting up and smiling.
We need to get a clearer copy of the Altgens photo for more analysis.
Was the Altgen photo altered, so that LBJ appears as a dark blur?
One thing for sure - we don't see LBJ. And we should. Why?

LBJ is missing from the photos in the Zapruder Film - and may have ducked

Possible Photo Manipulation - "LBJ Shadow"

Is this "shadow of LBJ" the best that even the CIA could do with 1963 technology?

Lee Harvey Oswald was standing in the Doorway

Ralph Cinque shows how the "man in the door" of the TSBD is LHO but was altered to look like Billy Lovelady, using his forehead of an older photo from the military files.  who he was the man in a white shirt shield his eyes from the Sun. 

The man in the door way (Altgens photo) looks exactly like Billy Lovelady (including the receding hairline, not LHO), who testified under oath that he was standing "Right there at the entrance of the building standing on the step."  - Trial testimony

Mr. BALL - Draw an arrow down to that; do it in the dark. You got an arrow in the dark and one in the white pointing toward you. Where were you when the picture was taken? 
Mr. LOVELADY - Right there at the entrance of the building standing on the the step, would be here (indicating the man in a white hirt).

"There is evidence that Lyndon Johnson was directly involved. Johnson was seen ducking down in his car a good 30 to 40 seconds before the first shots were fired, even before the car turned onto Houston street. Lyndon Johnson was acting as if he knew bullets would soon be flying, ducking down repeatedly before the shots went off. "

"The Senator who Suspected a JFK Conspiracy
Yarborough's Suspicion of Lyndon Johnson

"...There is the well-publicized story of Agent Rufus Youngblood, who reportedly threw himself on top of Vice President Johnson after the shooting began in Dealey Plaza.... Johnson, in a statement to the Warren Commission, mentioned the incident:

I was startled by a sharp report or explosion, but I had no time to speculate as to its origin because Agent Youngblood turned in a flash, immediately after the first explosion, hitting me on the shoulder, and shouted to all of us in the back seat to get down. I was pushed down by Agent Youngblood. Almost in the same moment in which he hit or pushed me, he vaulted over the back seat and sat on me. I was bent over under the weight of Agent Youngblood's body, toward Mrs. Johnson and Senator Yarborough....

However, former Texas senator Ralph Yarborough, who was sitting beside Johnson that day, told this author:

'It just didn't happen.... It was a small car, Johnson was a big man, tall. His knees were up against his chin as it was. There was no room for that to happen.' Yarborough recalled that both Johnson and Youngblood ducked down as the shooting began and that Youngblood never left the front seat. Yarborough said Youngblood held a small walkie-talkie over the back of the car's seat and that he and Johnson both put their ears to the device. He added: 'They had it turned down real low. I couldn't hear what they were listening to.'"

--Jim Marrs, Crossfire: The Plot that Killed Kennedy"

Dallas Police Officer Billy Joe "B.J" Martin said that according to his fellow motorcycle cops "who were escorting [the Vice-Presidential car] he [LBJ] started ducking down in the car a good 30 or 40 seconds before the first shots were fired..."  He said, in reflection upon the moments before the shooting, "our new president is either one jumpy son of a bitch or he knows something he's not telling about the Kennedy thing."
