Martin Luther King, Jr. ties into the 911 TRUTH Movement
There are many aspects surrounding the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. which tie into the 911 TRUTH movement.
Joe brought this out recently when he and fellow TRUTHERS marched in the Dallas MLK parade on 1/19/08. http://www.911blogger.com/node/13452
"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it." --MLK
A highlighting point: Many, many people do not know that it was proven in court, PROVEN IN COURT, that the GOVERNMENT CONSPIRED TO ASSASSINATE MARTIN LUTHER KING.
Most people have not heard of this. Here is a court case of December, 1999 which had unimpeachable evidence that proved the government conspired to assassinate King. Yet, we have been betrayed by our media, by our government, by our schools, by our churches because we have not been told about this.
The censorship of this landmark case is as loud as the censorship of the 911 TRUTH movement.
The media DELIBERATELY did not go into the courtroom when they had access.
One of the only reporters who attended every day of the trial, was Memphis TV reporter and local ABC news anchor Wendell Stacy. Because of insisting on attending the trial every day, Stacy was fired.
The evidence is insurmountable. Transcripts of the trial are available at www.thekingcenter.org. William Pepper, a personal friend of King and attorney representing both the King Family and also James Earl Ray (the patsy), has published books detailing 30 years of research and trial proceedings. William Pepper is also very active in the 911 TRUTH movement. His videos on Google video are well worth watching. Pepper provides advice and inspiration and legal counsel for the 911 TRUTH movement.
Here are some details surrounding this case.
“…Seventy witnesses set out the details of a conspiracy in a plot to murder King that involved J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI, Richard Helms and the CIA, the military, the local Memphis police, and organized crime figures from New Orleans and Memphis. The evidence is unimpeachable. The jury took an hour to find for the King family. But the silence following these shocking revelations was deafening. Like the pattern during all the investigations of the assassination throughout the years, no major media outlet would cover the story. It was effectively buried.”
Taken from William Pepper’s “An Act of State” who was a personal friend of King, and the attorney representing both the King Family and also James Earl Ray (the patsy).
December 8th , 1999 the jury decided the verdict. More quotes from Pepper:
“On the evening of April 4 1968, Martin Luther King was in Memphis supporting a worker’s strike. By the end of the day, top-level army snipers were in position to knock him out if ordered. Two military officers were in place on the roof of a fire station near the Lorraine Motel, to photograph the events. Two black firemen had been ordered not to report to duty that day and a black Memphis Police Department detective on surveillance duty in the fire station was physically removed from his post and taken home. Dr. King’s room at the motel was changed from a secluded ground-floor room to number 306 on the balcony. Loyd Jowers, owner of Jim’s Grill which backed to the motel from the other side of the street, had already received $100,000 in cash for his agreement to participate in the assassination. He was to go out into the brush area behind the grill with the shooter and take possession of the gun immediately after the fatal shot was fired. When the dust settled, King had been hit, and a clean-up procedure was immediately set in motion. James Earl Ray was effectively framed, the snipers dispersed, any witnesses who could not be controlled were killed, and the crime scene was destroyed.”
“…King had been targeted as part of a larger conspiracy to stop the anti-war movement, and to prevent King from gaining momentum in his promising Poor People’s Campaign.”
Barrie Zwicker and Ken Jenkins have a report on the trial and the censorship by the media.
“A jury said in December 1999 that it was a US government conspiracy, including the highest individuals at the highest levels of the United States government. I have no reason to disbelieve them," said Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney.
Transcript of the trial available at www.thekingcenter.org

FROM THE TRANSCRIPT OF THE TRIAL WHICH PROVED THAT THE GOVERNMENT CONSPIRED TO ASSASSINATE MARTIN LUTHER KING. The are excerpts, parts of which have been edited to keep it brief. (There are about 6,000 pages of transcripts.)
“Now, are we conspiracy buffs because we find all of this evidence insurmountable? I think not. But you have heard it. The masses of Americans have not. And the media has never put it to them and I submit to you probably never will.
“And that was a special eight-man sniper unit that was here in Memphis. They were all part of the 20th Special Forces Group. They were here and they were assigned and they were trained for an operation, for a mission, in Memphis. You heard testimony by a man who himself was a national security council operative who was very involved in Iran-Contra activities, who had been a long-standing operative, if you will, of the government of the United States and whose best friend was a member of that sniper team.
“So they were there, and there are three separate sources that confirm the presence. But they did not -- it was not necessary for them to do anything. The mission was aborted because the Mob contract was successful in killing Martin Luther King and framing James Earl Ray.
“Then there were photographers. Remember those photographers that Captain Weeden talked about. They were on the roof of the fire station. He put them there. Who were they? They were a psychological operations team, and they were there and they photographed everything throughout that day. That means, ladies and gentlemen, that there is a film of everything that happened, photographs of everything that happened buried somewhere. We tried long and hard to unearth it unsuccessfully, but it is there and it is hidden, as it was hidden from this jury it is hidden from the American people. Maybe the media one day will let you know that it exists. But it is there. They took those photographs. They were what is known as a psychological operations team, and we know who the two members of that team were..........
“We've learned that the 111th Military Intelligence Group based at Fort McPherson in Atlanta, Georgia, were here. They were in Memphis. They had Martin King under surveillance. That was open -- quote, open surveillance, eye-to-eye surveillance.
“Bill Schaap led you through the media. There were a couple of instances where he referred to the huge network of ownership and control of media entities all over the world by the Central Intelligence Agency. It is a matter of public record. It has appeared in Congressional hearings, Senate hearings, which most people don't read, don't know anything about, and, of course, the media only covers in sparse fashion, because it is contrary to their interests to show that great numbers of newspapers, radio stations, television stations, may in fact be actually owned by the Central Intelligence Agency in this country as well as elsewhere. He talked about the numbers of actual agents who work for media companies, who are placed in positions in network television company positions, in newspaper company positions, on newspaper editorial board positions.
“The cover-up activities in this case, ladies and gentlemen, range from murder to press manipulation and distortion, with bribery in between. … a Yellow Cab taxi driver who was standing at the rear of his car unfortunately for him, he saw the shooting and then turned… and saw…a man run up the street and get into a waiting Memphis Police Department traffic car which sped away. He didn't give a statement, did he? No, his body was found off the Memphis-Arkansas Bridge supposedly thrown out of a speeding car.
" ...Let's cleanse this nation of the ignorance that has pervaded this case for so long. Let the truth reign.” ---DELIVERED IN COURT BY WILLIAM PEPPER
WILLIAM PEPPER has some beautiful quotes from some of his talks in the 911 TRUTH movement.
“Is it thinkable that the American Government would kill its own citizens?
“That is the question which becomes most difficult for average mainstream people to accept.”
"It is only the citizen which can raise freedom and liberty in this land."
