New Documents Reveal Martin Luther King Was Murdered by US Army Snipers on April 4, 1968
By telling the story of Martin Luther King’s final year, Tavis Smiley’s book “DEATH of a KING” identifies America’s moral corruption when corporate media succeeds in demonizing King in the minds of blacks and whites in order to promote the profiteering of the military industrial complex and the racist poverty resulting from perpetual and illegal wars of aggression.
Beyond Vietnam: A Time To Break Silence
Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. made the comment that the U.S. government [was/is] “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today”. This was in context to a speech delivered on April 4, 1967 at Riverside Church in New York City – exactly one year before his untimely death.
- King’s “Beyond Vietnam” speech with transcript is available here
- The Book: “An Act of State – The Execution of Martin Luther King”, provides documented evidence that Martin Luther King was executed by army snipers on April 4 1968.
- Christopher Hitchens Book: THE TRIAL of HENRY KISSINGER exposes former secretary of state as a war criminal committing atrocities in Indochina, Bangladesh, Chile, Cyprus, East Timor, and in the plight of the Iraqi Kurds, “including conspiracy to commit murder, kidnap, and torture.”
False Flag for Empire committed in New York, the Empire State
Book Review by Robert David Steele
The minute that Dr. King turned against militarism and denounced the USA as the greatest purveyor of violence upon the world, he was first marginalized and then assassinated. “The System” was fine with Dr. King focusing on racism, and even poverty, but it would not tolerate for one moment his questioning the military-industrial complex and the national security state.
The author — whom I found to be very inspiring, coherent, and concise — a brilliant articulator of the key points in the book — goes on to have a conversation with Jon Stewart about how the USA simply cannot handle truth-tellers in relation to “big money” matters such as elective wars (racism and poverty being “little money” matters, and deliberately so).
Dr. King was ultimately assassinated by a US Army sniper on detail to the FBI and under the personal direction of J. Edgar Hoover. The story is told in An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King and has also been documented and validated in a judgment by a federal court awarding the King family the single dollar in damages they requested.
I will mention in passing, because somehow Reddit noticed it today and sent the world to my website, that Henry Kissinger, the dowager empress of the political servant class, is a war criminal (see The Trial of Henry Kissinger) and now famous for two quotations, both immortalized at Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog:
“Military men are ‘dumb, stupid animals to be used’ as pawns for foreign policy”
and, my personal favorite that captures everything wrong with the two-party tyranny of political servants to the financial class:
“The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.”
Dr. King died because he recognized that our national security state has turned both our own country and the world into a cesspool instead of heaven on Earth, and this is one of the reasons we have problems not just with poverty, but with illegal immigration. In my view, the best way to honor Dr. King today would be to dismantle this national security state (along with the two-party tyranny) and reboot American democracy by putting ALL of the people back into self-governance. NO ONE now considered a candidate for president in 2016 has the combination of intelligence and integrity necessary to form the necessary coalition to make that happen. Please buy the book — this may be one of those world-changing “aha” experiences we all so desperately need if we are to restore the idea that is America.
