In the 1970s, Hayer submitted two affidavits reasserting his claim that Butler and Johnson had nothing to do with Malcolm X’s assassination, but the case was never reopened. Butler was paroled in 1985, Johnson was released in 1987, and Hayer was paroled in 2010.
King’s letter read: “While we did not always see eye to eye on methods to solve the race problem, I always had a deep affection for Malcolm and felt that he had the great ability to put his finger on the existence and root of the problem.”
Malcolm’s own suspicions that he would be killed because of his beliefs were well documented. During a trip to the University of Oxford, he confided to British activist Tariq Ali that he would soon be dead.
Had he been Labeled Public Enemy Number One? If so, by whom?
Now taking into consideration of White Power, White Privilege, and White Supremacy, and White Justice, it’s difficult, even naive, to not believe that both Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Were both targeted for Assassinations. I believe that both men were. With an America that was still experiencing Lynchings against Blacks, the Time Period was prime for it. A Dark Time that has continued for over 400 years. And certain ones apparently Approved of it or they Condoned it. The ones who have the True Power over all of 🇺🇸. Not a Billionaire. Ones held in the Highest regards by other World Leaders. Ones you’ll never see behind Gated Doors that attend highly secretive Meetings. None that you’ll ever know about. But they do take PLACE.
I’ve even read tales that F.B.I. Tsar, J. Edgar Hoover was behind both of their Deaths. But Dead Men Tell No Tales-Right? But the 1960s were ripe for Assassinations. A strange melancholy type time period thrust so because of the beginning of the dwindling of support for the Vietnam War and the Watts Riots.. FEAR! FEAR is the root cause of many misunderstandings that transform into disruptive Acts by those affected most by the fear itself. But who has the Power to Order such Acts? Dictators do. Even Dictators enter into deep misguided Acts that have their Origins deeply rooted in FEAR. 😱 Much like Putin and His Army knocking on Ukraine’s Door over a FEAR of NATO. And 🇺🇸 and NATO acting out together in FEAR of RUSSIA’S advancement into Europe with an 83 Battalion Army of Troops with 750 Soldiers in each one. Stuff that cannot be overlooked as merely inconsequential. Can it truly be WW-III soon to begin? But Malcolm X knew DEATH was coming-
“As I rose to leave, I hoped we would meet again. His response stunned me. He was doubtful that we would because ‘they’re going to kill me soon,'” Ali wrote about his encounter with the prominent speaker.
Ali added that after getting over his initial shock, he asked Malcolm X who was going to kill him and the outspoken Black leader was “in no doubt that it would be either the Nation of Islam or the FBI or both.”
3 months later, Malcolm X was gunned down.
On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was assassinated at the Audubon Ballroom in the Washington Heights section of New York.
Had he been Labeled Public Enemy Number One? Like many mysteries, this Case seems to have taken many trails. A real Conspiracy? Sure, most likely, the Rich White Folks were growing scared of this Black Man and no White Man had a handle in what the Nation of Islam was all about. But a Violent Group had grasped Power and Malcolm X believed what he Taught was the Correct Path. And he was correct. Buy he was Killed and who did it? Who Killed this Man?
But exactly when did Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., become Public Enemy Number One? Or are you still sitting in the Bleachers on this Assassination too?
Martin Luther King Jr., an African-American clergyman and civil rights leader, was fatally shot at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968, at 6:01 p.m. CST. He was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where he died at 7:05 p.m. He was a prominent leader of the Civil Rights Movement and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who was known for his use of nonviolence and civil disobedience.
And his Assassin?
James Earl Ray, a fugitive from the Missouri State Penitentiary, was arrested on June 8, 1968, at London‘s Heathrow Airport, extradited to the United States, and charged with the crime. On March 10, 1969, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 99 years in the Tennessee State Penitentiary. He later made many attempts to withdraw his guilty plea and to be tried by a jury, but was unsuccessful. Ray died in prison in 1998.
The King family and others believe that the assassination was the result of a conspiracy involving the U.S. government, the mafia, and Memphis police, as alleged by Loyd Jowers in 1993. They believe that Ray was a scapegoat. In 1999, the family filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Jowers for the sum of $10 million. During closing arguments, their attorney asked the jury to award damages of $100, to make the point that “it was not about the money”. During the trial, both sides presented evidence alleging a government conspiracy. The accused government agencies could not defend themselves or respond because they were not named as defendants. Based on the evidence, the jury concluded that Jowers and others were “part of a conspiracy to kill King” and awarded the family $100. The allegations and the finding of the Memphis jury were later disputed by the United States Department of Justice in 2000 because of the lack of evidence. The assassination was one of four major assassinations of the 1960s in the United States, coming several years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963 and the assassination of Malcolm X in 1965, and two months before the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968.
But where does this Ball go? Into many a Conspiracy Theory. Admission and the Admitted Guilt recanted? Only a White Conspiracy of the Highest Order could have pulled all of This Off.
On Thursday, April 4, 1968, King was staying in room 306 at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. The motel was owned by businessman Walter Bailey and was named after his wife. Reverend Ralph Abernathy, a colleague and friend, later told the House Select Committee on Assassinations that he and King had stayed in Room 306 at the Lorraine Motel so often that it was known as the “King–Abernathy Suite”.
According to biographer Taylor Branch, King’s last words were to musician Ben Branch, who was scheduled to perform that night at a planned event. King said, “Ben, make sure you play ‘Take My Hand, Precious Lord‘ in the meeting tonight. Play it real pretty.”
According to Rev. Samuel Kyles, who was standing several feet away, King was leaning over the balcony railing in front of Room 306 and was speaking with Rev. Jesse Jackson when the shot rang out. King was struck in the face at 6:01 p.m. by a single .30-06 bullet fired from a Remington Model 760 rifle. The bullet entered through King’s right cheek, breaking his jaw and several vertebrae as it traveled down his spinal cord, severing his jugular vein and major arteries in the process, before lodging in his shoulder. The force of the shot ripped King’s necktie off. King fell backward onto the balcony, unconscious.
Abernathy heard the shot from inside the motel room and ran to the balcony to find King on the deck, bleeding profusely from the wound in his cheek. Jesse Jackson stated after the shooting that he cradled King’s head as King lay on the balcony, but this account was disputed by other colleagues of King; Jackson later changed his statement to say that he had “reached out” for King. Andrew Young, a colleague from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, first believed King was dead, but found he still had a pulse.
King was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where doctors opened his chest and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He never regained consciousness and died at 7:05 p.m. According to Branch, King’s autopsy revealed that his heart was in the condition of a 60-year-old man rather than that of a 39-year-old such as King, which Branch attributed to the stress of King’s 13 years in the civil rights movement.
Shortly after the shot was fired, witnesses saw a man, later believed to be James Earl Ray, fleeing from a rooming house across the street from the Lorraine Motel. Ray had been renting a room in the boarding house. Police found a package dumped close to the site that included a rifle and binoculars, both with Ray’s fingerprints. Ray had purchased the rifle under an alias six days earlier. A worldwide manhunt was triggered that culminated in Ray’s arrest at London‘s Heathrow Airport two months later. On March 10, 1969, he pleaded guilty to the first degree murder of Martin Luther King Jr., which was later recanted.
At what point in Time was Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr., labeled Public Enemy Number One? The Rich White Privileged had to be a be the ones to Order the Assassination. Or not? Or just give their Okay?
Two things I’ve always believed is that just a Handful of Men run America. They Order And Approve Assassinations. And there is a 2nd Layer of Things Approved to be Done that is Criminal in Nature. And done by their underlings. Or not. But there are just too many strange things that should not have happened and certain folks had to be behind both of these Planned Murders. But hey, I’m a nobody and I don’t know nothing for sure, do you?
In a Washington Post Article, William Pepper-
He has spoken around the world to anyone who will listen, including recently at the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel, where King was killed. Pepper was sued once for defamation, by an Army soldier he accused of participating in the conspiracy, and a South Carolina judge entered an $11 million default judgment against him in 2000.
In recent years, Pepper has tracked down witnesses in Memphis who support his theory of the case: that J. Edgar Hoover used his longtime assistant, Clyde Tolson, to deliver cash to members of the Memphis underworld, that those shadowy figures then hired a sharpshooting Memphis police officer, and that officer — not Ray — fired the fatal shot.
Again, F.B.I. Tsar, J. Edgar Hoover’s name pops up prominently in both Murders. But now the Truth is not easily made available. Too many have now passed away and the secrets with them.
And the biggest reason that you’ll never see the Full JFK FILES is because in the Investigations of JFK’s Assassination, too many other dark Secrets were Uncovered like who really killed all three men. And don’t shake your head. Many other dark Secrets were also found Under OATH. And the Rich will never allow their Family Names to be drug thru the mud of Public Scrutiny. Not gonna happen. Just won’t. Again, just a Handful of Men Control all that happens in America and they sure aren’t Black…and below is another Article where the Claim is that his Doctor killed Dr. king-
But did he predict his own DEATH?
I lived in this Time Period and after the Riots and Protests, I realized that All Have a Voice! And by just Sharing this Blog is a huge way of saying-I Have a Voice Too!
Today, what little that’s ever gained cannot be Undone. Unless an idle 🇺🇸 allows it. This is not a Time to play My Eyes Are Blind. We must not do that because that is not who we are. Great men and Women who have a Greater Vision always will point 🇺🇸 in the right direction. But that very Act might cost them their Lives. And it did for these two great men-Malcom X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
