LBJ RATTLESNAKE STRUCK JFK
To Orwell Today,
Until reading your JFK'S LAST FULL DAY IN TEXAS and JFK STATUE FORT WORTH WORTHY articles I had NEVER seen the FULL Forth Worth breakfast clip before:
watch GIFTS TO JFK AT FORT WORTH BREAKFAST, YouTube
Hotel Texas Ballroom, Friday, November 22, 1963
"...Mr President, we know that you don't wear a hat, but we couldn't let you leave Fort Worth without providing you with some protection against the rain... And to protect you against local enemies, in the manner that you are protecting this nation against our foreign enemies, and to keep the rattlesnakes on Vice-President Johnson's ranch from striking you, we want to present you with this pair of boots. We won't ask you to put them on here..."
Never knew of the references to local enemies and LBJ's rattlesnakes or gift of boots.
Yes, that clip amazed me too when I first came across it -- having only previously seen the clip where they gave JFK the cowboy hat.
It seems to me that JFK had a somewhat disconcerted look on his face after receiving the boots. He didn't laugh like when they gave him the hat.
Within three hours of that Fort Worth breakfast -- where the head of the Chamber of Commerce made the comment about rattlesnakes striking JFK on LBJ's ranch -- JFK was struck dead by a bullet and LBJ became President.
That rattlesnake remark is another one of the eerie forebodings of JFK's death that happened that day. In the morning, while reading the newspaper over coffee, JFK had seen the full-page hate-ad in the Dallas Morning News (owned by a man named Dealey who had insulted JFK during a publisher luncheon at the White House) and it had upset JFK quite badly. He'd hidden the newspaper so Jackie wouldn't see it.
Then, after the Fort Worth breakfast -- while resting in their room before the motorcade to the airport -- JFK pantomined while making the comment:
"...Last night would have been a hell of a night to assassinate a President. There was the rain, and the night, and we were all getting jostled. Suppose a man had a pistol in a briefcase. He could have dropped the gun and the briefcase and melted away in the crowd...."
Immediately after JFK had said those words -- using his forefinger to pull the imaginary trigger -- LBJ had walked into the room and broke the spell. See DALLAS HATE-JFK DEALEY AD & JFK'S ASSASSINATION PREMONITION
Godcidently, JFK's description of his assassination accurately depicted what did in fact happen in Dealey Plaza (contrary to what the Warren Commission concluded). JFK was shot from behind the grassy knoll by a man with a gun dropping it into a briefcase and melting away into the crowd. That's exactly what a deaf man -- Ed Hoffman -- saw from his vantage point on the Stemmons freeway overpass looking over the parking lot behind the grassy knoll.

In the moments before the Dealey Plaza bullets started flying, Vice-President Johnson, in the second car behind JFK, was caught on camera looking straight ahead with a deadpan face as though he knew something would be happening in the motorcade. See LBJ OF ELMS ON ELM
But as mentioned in that article I don't think LBJ was directly involved in the planning of the JFK assassination -- he wasn't powerful enough for that -- but I think he probably suspected it was going to happen.
The gift of the cowboy boots -- and the comment about them protecting JFK from rattlesnakes on LBJ's ranch -- was no doubt made in jest and is another example of symbolic synchronicity. There's no photo -- or clip -- of LBJ when that remark was made but it would be interesting to see the look on his face.
All the best,
