The Conspiracy to Kill Martin Luther King Jr: Not a Theory But a Fact, According to Our Own Legal System

On April 4, 1968, the government was part of a successful conspiracy to assassinate MLK, a jury concluded.

…But there surely were people in the federal government who thought they had good reason to join a conspiracy to get rid of Dr. King. He was deep into planning for the Poor People’s Campaign, which would bring poor folks of every race and ethnicity to Washington, DC. The plan was to have them camp out on the Mall until the government enacted major economic reforms to lift everyone out of poverty. That meant redistributing wealth -- an idea that made perfect sense to Dr. King, who was a harsh critic of the evils of capitalism (as well as communism).

It also meant uniting whites and non-whites in the lower income brackets, to persuade them that the suffering they shared in common was stronger than the racial prejudice that divided them. Dr. King did not have to be a prophet to foresee that the longer whites blamed non-whites, rather than the rich, for their troubles, the easier it would be to block measures for redistributing wealth. The unifying effect of the Poor People’s Campaign spelled trouble for those whose wealth might be redistributed.

At the same time, Dr. King was the most famous and respected critic of the war in Vietnam. By 1968 he was constantly preaching that the war was not just a tragic mistake. It was the logical outgrowth of the American way of life, based on what he called the inextricably linked “triplets” of militarism, racism, and materialism. Had he lived, the Poor People’s Campaign would have become a powerful vehicle for attacking all three and showing just how inseparable they are.

Yes, plenty of people in the federal government thought they had good reason to put an end to the work of Dr. King. But that hardly proves federal government complicity in a conspiracy to kill him….

Anniversary Of MLK Assassination: The Poor People’s Campaign
By: DSWright Thursday April 4, 2013 8:29 am Tweet16  

Today is the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King. Contrary to the sanitized saccharine version of Martin Luther King most school children are force fed stands the real man. A radical. A democratic socialist. A man truly despised in the circles of power. Who, in the last campaign before he was struck down, expanded the search for justice beyond nondiscrimination into the realm of true empowerment.

Martin Luther King was assassinated in Memphis working for the Poor People’s Campaign. He was told by numerous friends and colleagues not to go to Memphis and after a historic speech against the Vietnam War President Lyndon Johnson disinvited King to to the White House and pulled his support. King and the Poor People’s Campaign were already being subjected to a covert disruption campaign by the FBI apparently based on the threat of “black militancy.”

The Poor People’s Campaign would eventually yield a committee that demanded an Economic Bill of Rights with five planks:

“A meaningful job at a living wage”

“A secure and adequate income” for all those unable to find or do a job

“Access to land” for economic uses

“Access to capital” for poor people and minorities to promote their own businesses

Ability for ordinary people to “play a truly significant role” in the government

The “secure and adequate income” or a guaranteed annual income was wholeheartedly endorsed by King who thought it was the surest way to end poverty. Which, from a technical standpoint, it is.

"I am now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective — the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income."

Redistributing income from the rich to the poor would, in essence, remove poverty. It is also, without a doubt, socialism. It seems past time for the real Martin Luther King to be celebrated. To remember what he died for. Tags: poverty, Martin Luther King, MLK, socialism, guaranteed annual income, Poor People's Campaign

~ "Martin Luther King Jr. Assassination (Canada's Vision TV: 6 minutes) This carefully researched Vision TV program (Canada) shows powerful evidence that elements of the U.S. government were involved in the Martin Luther King, Jr. assassination. Learn about an astounding 1999 Memphis civil trial in which a jury found a major conspiracy in King's assassination. Yet the media failed to give any significant coverage to the entire trial." ~

What are you talking about? Wait, you clearly don't know. SORRY!

LBJ bailed, quit, resigned, over the fucking debacle of Vietnam!!!

Nixon, and his band of RW traitors, made a deal with Nam to not negotiate, just like Raygun and Iran!!! See video above. LBJ was pro-labor, promoter of the Great Society, MLK was an important ally. Nixon's men killed MLK!!

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6638) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Yeah, you apparently don't know what the fuck your talking about. LBJ didn't run in 1968 because he knew he didn't have a chance of winning. Also, he was concerned with his failing health and didn't think he'd live thru another four-year term. That's not the same as "he bailed, quit, resigned."

Besides, you claimed he was a "civilian" then. In '68 when MLK was killed, Johnson was, uh PRESIDENT.

[-] 0 points by WSmith (2091) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Yes, I forgot he served out his second term after declaring he wouldn't run. No difference. The RW still killed Kennedy, then they killed MLK, then they killed RFK. On a tape of LBJ, he divulged his knowledge of Nixon's dirty tricks with Vietnam to hurt Humphrey. But his concern was more about disappointing the public than busting Nixon for treason, this accounts for the silence. RepubliCons have been such traitors through the years, Dems don't say much to keep some modicum of respect for our government. It's been a double edged sword, damned if they do ~ damned if they don't. Cons run up debt, screw the economy and redistribute to their 1% masters. Dems, more and more, have been relegated to cleaning up RepubliCon atrocities and carnage. I for one think Dems should just tell all and divulge the Cons as America's most dangerous and most wanted Criminals that they are. And let the shit fly. The fraud, extortion and climate of corruption far outweigh any advantage of suspicious silence.

How much does an international website cost, with all the features here? We know the hall monitors cost nothing.

What threat does an unread, invisible website/forum pose?

By the way, do you work for Night Hawk/Night Raven, or the Auzy after our hours medical/exray eval outfit???

Aaaah, a simple forum like this can be set up for free. I haven't had a look at the rest of the site. Domain names are a one-off purchase price.

Information shared here gets sent to various other blogs/forums/FB pages around the blogosphere. You've been here a while. You must read some of the activities and protests that are advertised here, and attended by people here.

Not so simple, I know maintenance alone costs money. (ANYBODY??)

.0000001% know or use or share this site. Threatless, if you know how politics works.

I've been here decades before and have seen many come and go. This was by far the greatest disappointment, but best website.

So sorry your not a Night Hawk.

Matin Luther King Jr. was also about non-violence as the means to what ever your ends are going to be. He also contiually told people that he could not and would not change for them, but that people must change for themselves and because they think that their cause it worthy.

I disagree with much of MLKjr. had to say, especially concerning economics, but he the process down pat.

[-] -1 points by WSmith (2091) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

See the reply below about love and power.

[-] -1 points by HCabret (-327) 1 year ago

MLKjr. wanted people treat all other like people, nothing less. He was not a violent rascist like Malcolm X or George Wallace who both believed that they were intrinsically better than the simply based on the color of their skin.

This isn't about "things", it's about freedom.

[-] 0 points by WSmith (2091) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Malcolm X was not the violent racist bigot "equivalent" of George Wallace and his filthy white ilk, he was a victim ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcom_X ). It's a tiresome and pathetic ploy for the right to contrive false equivalencies with the 1%'s RW plethora of monstrous and criminal mobsters to decent people, in a feeble attempt to make Cons seem not so glaringly bad. But Cons are so glaringly bad, and rubbing their filth on others does not make them the same!

Both MLK and MX were anti-discrimination/injustice community organizers who were gaining members which made them threats to the tyrannical 1% and, being black, easy and safe targets for assassination.

[-] 1 points by HCabret (-327) 1 year ago

All violent people are equal. Killing one person is just as bad as killing millions of people.

MLK took q's from Gandhi and told people that non-violence is not only the only moral way to resist, but the most effective way to resist. He also wanted people to be treated like people no matter they skin color or economic status.

Malcolm X was a pro-violence collectivist, who for most of his political career advocated for seperation based on one's skin color. In 1964, one year before he was Violently murdered, he left the Nation of Islam and began to reverse on his previously rascist positions. He did begin to turn it around, but maintained a position that said that violent self-defense was okay untill the day he died.

MLKjr. and Malcolm X are completely different in almost every way.

[-] 2 points by HCabret (-327) 1 year ago

"Malcolm X was a pro-violence collectivist" <-- is this not concise enough for you?

that isnt a very "generalized" statement.

Malcolm X promoted violence as a means of resistance and promoted collectivist group think amoung his followers.

Know some facts asshole. 1965 Liberal President Johnson, creates "The Great Society" and the war on poverty. Poverty rate in US at that time 13.2%.. Almost 50 years later, and trillions spent on social programs poverty in the US, now, in 2013....14.3%.

Poverty CANNOT and never will be eliminated. 50 years from now. Stats will remain the same.
