Lyndon Baines Johnson (27 August 1908 – 22 January 1973), sometimes referred to as LBJ, was a Democratic politician who was elected vice president of the United States in 1960 and who became president (1963–69) after the John F. Kennedy assassination.

Leftist Wikipedia states that he is ranked favorably by many (leftist) "historians because of his domestic policies and the passage of many major laws that affected civil rights, gun control, wilderness preservation, and Social Security, although he also drew substantial criticism for his escalation of the Vietnam War."

However, the most important event during his presidency may have been the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.

He and close relatives have been stated to have been involved in numerous pro-Jewish and pro-Israel activities and have been argued to have had partially Jewish ancestry.[1]
