Martin Luther King survived shooting, was murdered in hospital: An interview with William Pepper by Craig McKee about The Plot To Kill King

THE PLOT TO KILL KING is the third book by William Francis Pepper

MARTIN LUTHER KING SURVIVED SHOOTING, WAS MURDERED IN HOSPITAL: AN INTERVIEW WITH WILLIAM PEPPER by Craig McKee 9-03-16 Truth & Shadows Blog

plot to kill king
Excerpts: “The revelations are stunning. The media indifference is predictable. Thanks to the nearly four-decade investigation by human rights lawyer William Pepper, it is now clear once and for all that Martin Luther King was murdered in a conspiracy that was instigated by then FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and that also involved the U.S. military, the Memphis Police Department, and “Dixie Mafia” crime figures in Memphis, Tennessee. These and many more incredible details of the King assassination are contained in a trilogy of volumes by Pepper culminating with his latest and final book on the subject, The Plot to Kill King. With virtually no help from the mainstream media and very little from the justice system, Pepper was able to piece together what really happened on April 4, 1968 in Memphis right down to who gave the order and supplied the money, how the patsy was chosen, and who actually pulled the trigger… Without this information, the truth about King’s assassination would have been buried and lost to history. Witnesses would have died off, taking their secrets with them, and the official lie that King was the victim of a racist lone gunman named James Earl Ray would have remained “fact.”…”

My 5 minute video “An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King” was written to promote Pepper’s 2nd of 3 books on MLK. I had corresponded with him about writing a song and making a video to promote his book. The video screened on the Grand Lake Theater big screen and on the No Lies Radio livestream before William Pepper gave the keynote speech for the 2018 9/11 Truth Film Festival (2013 #2 video with new soundtrack featuring Eric Golub on viola) at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel by Vic Sadot.

Dr. William F. Pepper was the keynote speaker at the 13th Annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival on Monday, September 11, 2017 at the Grand Lake Theatre in Oakland, California. William Pepper was the lawyer for the King family in their 1999 Memphis civil trial victory at which a unanimous jury put information and a verdict into the American historical record when they convicted formerm Memphis cop Loyd Jowers and unnamed government co-conspirators for the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Pepper is the author of three books about the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr. (1) Orders To Kill (1995); (2) An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King” (2003); and (3) “The Plot to Kill King: The Truth Behind the Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.” (2017).

From William Pepper to Vic Sadot: “Thanks so much for the effort you and others are making in the common struggle to air the truth about how this Republic, and each one of us, lost Martin. Thank you for taking the time to put some important history into a ballad. This, of course, is the role of the Balladeer without whom much of history would be lost, especially in our time with the consolidation of control of the mainstream media. I am grateful. Bill Pepper”

Personal BERKELEY CALLING BLOG Notes: It was one of my finest moments of last year to meet William Pepper in person when he was the keynote speaker on Sept 11, 2017 at the annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland.

In this photo William Pepper is signing my copy of his book An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King and I’m signing a gift copy of my 2016 Truth Troubadour by Vic Sadot​ CD at CD Baby that has the recording of the song I wrote to promote his book and to highlight several of the key disclosures that William Pepper put into the public record by winning the civil suit in a Memphis Court in 1999 for the King Family. You can see that I am wearing my I Am The Face of Truth T-shirt that day.

Please read this article for the 2018 MLK Birthday! Written by Craig McKee at Truth and Shadows Blog. In many pivotal historical events it may take years to learn that the story that we were first told was not the truth. It involved trauma-based conditioned during the breaking news of the event to pivot history in a terrible direction. Wars abroad and repressive laws at home can be the result.

MLK 2

For one bright moment back in the late 1960s, we actually believed that we could change our country. We had identified the enemy. We saw it up close, we had its measure, and we were very hopeful that we would prevail. The enemy was hollow where we had substance. All of that substance was destroyed by an assassin’s bullet. – William Pepper (page 15, The Plot to Kill King)

Jenkins misleads by linking Pentagon plane impact theory to AE911Truth

What really happened at the Pentagon on 9/11? The “debate” in the 9/11 Truth Movement seems to not be completely on the level when it comes to the Pentagon. Craig McKee’s Truth And Shadows Blog is no place to push unsubstantiated BS, or lame excuses for outright suppression of competing views. This becomes very clear when one reads these articles about what happened in the 9/11 Truth movement about what happened at the Pentagon on 9/11/01. Highly Recommended Reading!

If you like this article, here are some other well written ones about the Pentagon and the Truth Movement.

Cab Driver Involved In 9/11 Pentagon Attack Admits “It Was Planned” VERY INTERESTING!! (14:53) Published on Feb 1, 2012 at hiptothedig YouTube Channel. Video #82 in the “9/11 & Other False Flag Investigations Playlist at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel. https://youtu.be/kvyQ0vVwjqc?list=PLr2ybDdOumY7mIry7UZYzFeTfnS-J_F93

The taxi driver claims a light pole smashed into the windshield of his car, damaging only the windshield. Despite his claim that part of the pole was laying across the hood of his car but left no scratches or marks in the paint or metal. The interview starts out a little slow getting to the point, but watch his whole interview and you’ll start scratching your head at what this guy is claiming. The real kicker is what he says at the end (11:58), that “it was planned.” This is a snippet of an excellent documentary titled “National Security Alert – 9/11 Pentagon Attack” featuring eyewitness accounts (which includes D.C. Police Officers and city employees) that contradict the “official” version version of events by testifying that the approach of a jet plane was on the north side of the CITGO Gas Station, which is not the path that would account for 5 fallen light poles being hit by a plane.

More absurd arguments on the Pentagon: ‘propaganda team’ sets its sights on Griffin 7-16-12 by Craig McKee in Truth And Shadows Blog: “In Chapter 7 of David Ray Griffin’s most recent book, 9/11 Ten Years Later: When State Crimes Against Democracy Succeed, Griffin makes a strong case for no plane impact and shows how weak the positions of Chandler, Legge, Cole, and Hoffmann really are…” http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/more-absurd-arguments-on-the-pentagon-propaganda-team-sets-its-sights-on-griffin

Comment by Craig McKee at Truth and Shadows July 17, 2012 Blog, “David Ray Griffin, Barrie Zwicker Support CIT’s ‘Staged Evidence’ Scenario”: Here’s what Griffin wrote on page 265 of “Debunking 9/11 Debunking” about the witness accounts compiled by CIT: “This testimony, besides throwing into doubt the testimony of Don Mason and the other people who claimed to have seen the light poles clipped, suggests something even more important: that the five light poles were staged to provide evidence for the official story. If so, then we must suspect that other evidence for the official story was also planted. If any of the evidence is demonstrably planted, in fact, we must doubt the truth of the entire story.” There it is. https://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/?s=This+testimony%2C+besides+throwing+into+doubt+the+testimony+of+Don+Mason+

Pentagon debates expose emptiness of large-plane-impact scenario by Craig McKee in, Truth and Shadows Blog March 16, 2016 http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2016/03/16/pentagon-debates

Excerpt: “Those who are determined to push the impossible claim that a large plane really did hit the Pentagon on 9/11 – despite the absence of a plane at the “crash” site – go to incredible lengths to try and make their case. They speculate, hypothesize, assume, and concoct imaginative and “plausible” scenarios that they claim “fit the data” or are “consistent with an impact”… Two of those articles were critiques of presentations given by researchers David Chandler and Ken Jenkins at the 9/11 film festival held in Oakland, CA. in September (2015 and posted to YouTube as “Pentagon Plane Puzzle”). Both presentations were part of a continuing effort by a small team of researchers to get the 9/11 Truth Movement to abandon some of the most powerful evidence that exists that 9/11 was an inside job…”

Jenkins misleads by linking Pentagon plane impact theory to AE911Truth October 19, 2015 By Craig McKee in his Truth & Shadows Blog http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2015/10/19/credibility-of-ae911truth-co-opted-to-push-pentagon-plane-impact

“Festival organizer Ken Jenkins—who along with Chandler wants the rest of the Truth Movement to believe a large plane actually hit the Pentagon as the official story claims—tried in his brief talk to link his Team’s Pentagon theory with the widely supported position advanced by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth that the World Trade Center towers were brought down in controlled demolitions. If you liked controlled demolition, you’ll love a large plane hitting the Pentagon! It was six minutes of pure spin and cleverly worded manipulation.”

Going full debunker: Chandler devotes most of Pentagon talk to boosting 9/11 official story

http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2015/10/03/chandler-goes-debunker

Comment by Craig McKee at Truth and Shadows July 17, 2012 Blog, “David Ray Griffin, Barrie Zwicker Support CIT’s ‘Staged Evidence’ Scenario”: Here’s what Griffin wrote on page 265 of “Debunking 9/11 Debunking” about the witness accounts compiled by CIT: “This testimony, besides throwing into doubt the testimony of Don Mason and the other people who claimed to have seen the light poles clipped, suggests something even more important: that the five light poles were staged to provide evidence for the official story.

Excerpt: “A group of supposed truthers has done everything possible to discredit CIT, defending the official story to a bizarre degree. They mock and ridicule anyone who doesn’t agree with them, calling them “liars” and “no-planer idiots” and then they claim that it is CIT’s investigative methods that are the problem.

I have questioned the motives of some of these “researchers.” They claim they want to cut CIT out of the movement because their claim that a 757 did not hit the Pentagon will bring ridicule to the cause and undermine its chances of success. So they fuel internal dissension that will do exactly what they claim to be afraid of.

In his book Debunking 9/11 Debunking, Griffin questions the eyewitness account of Don Mason, who claims to have seen the light poles hit (p. 264).

“This claim, that the plane en route to the Pentagon hit five light poles at the Washington Boulevard overpass – three with one wing, two with the other – has been an important part of the evidence that a Boeing 757, or in any case an airplane with a wingspan of at least 100 feet (the distance between the light poles on the two sides of the road), really did strike the Pentagon. PM’s [Popular Mechanics] support of this claim includes photographs of the five poles, which were knocked down.

“Serious questions about the credibility of this claim have long been raised. But videotaped testimony has recently been presented that, if reliable, would make the claim even more dubious than it was before.”

Griffin refers to interviews in the CIT film The PentaCon that show that the flight path was to the north of the gas station, making it impossible for the plane to have hit the poles.”

The PentaCon – Smoking Gun Version (1:19:37) Published on Apr 23, 2011 at lyletrip youtube channel https://youtu.be/-bR-k96laOI

Barrie Zwicker is quoted in this blog as well: The evidence now shows, well past reasonable doubt, what happened. It was detonation of explosives within the building, timed to coincide with a flyover by a large jet plane, thus producing the clever illusion that flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, heart of the official 9/11 Pentagon lie.

He adds: “To me, two most important questions now, almost nine years after the events, urgently call out for investigation. First, who are those behind the vicious attempts to discredit the work of the Citizen Investigation Team? Second, what are the motives of the would-be discreditors and those behind them? I say “attempts” because careful examination of the arguments of CIT’s tormentors show them to be tricky and unreliable – as flimsy as the official story they try to defend.”

By Craig McKee

In my last post, I deconstructed David Chandler’s very disturbing Pentagon presentation at last month’s 9/11 Truth Film Festival in Oakland, CA. But as troubling as his reinforcement of most of the official story was, it wasn’t the only talk at the festival given by a member of his “Team” of researchers.

Nuclear Heartland USA Video of John LaForge Lecture on the Updated Book Nuclear Heartland by Nukewatch

“Nuclear Heartland”, the book, was first published in 1988. It listed the locations of all land-based nuclear missile silos in the United States. John LaForge of Nukewatch updated and republished a 2015 report on the status of such land-based nuclear silos in the United States.

John LaForge presented a power-point lecture on the book and the nuclear weapons abolition movement on 10-13-16 in Fellowship Hall. The 58 minute video “Nuclear Heartland USA” was made by Vic Sadot from an audio recording by Sound Engineer David Yandle. It was published to “Social Justice in the Heart of Berkeley” YouTube on March 29, 2017.

John LaForge of Nukewatch was accompanied on this speaking tour with German nuclear abolitionist activist Marion Küpker, who represents GAAA, Gewaltfreie Aktion Atomwaffen Abschaffen (Nonviolent Action to Abolish Nuclear Weapons). It is a German organization dedicated to the total abolition of nuclear weapons.

Since many of us had not heard that a historic vote in the UN General Assembly was coming up on Oct 27, 2016, we learned about it from John LaForge. The vote was overwhelming to make 2017 the year to push the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty forward through UN sponsored conferences: 123 In Favor; 38 Against; 16 Abstentions. The vote was something of an act of defiance toward the Security Council, and almost all nuclear-armed powers voted no, with some notable abstentions. The mainstream media buried the story as if it was not a significant event in human history!

The outcome of the upcoming Oct 27, 2017 UN General Assembly Vote for talks to move the NPT Treaty forward was presaged by John LaForge on Oct 13, 2016 in Berkeley. We include information of that vote with the advantage of releasing the video in late March 2017. The US, UK, and other nuclear powers boycotted the March 2017 conference. Did your media even cover the crucial talks to ban nuclear weapons from the Earth?

The next NPT UN conference is scheduled for July 2017! Make your country attend the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty talks about the signatory obligations and the need to press this issue vital to human survival forward. Remember that previous negotiations did lead to significant affirmed nuclear disarmament and a reduction of tensions.  This was moving forward until GW Bush unilaterally withdrew the US from the ABM Treaty with Russia! Making the Middle East a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone is one of the immediate priorities of the countries pressing forward and of many nuclear abolition activists of many nations.America-sends-nuclear-bombers-to-Russian-Borders_The-National-Interest

Cynthia Jean Johson welcomed everyone to Historic Fellowship Hall in Berkeley. Author-activist Cecile Pineda did the introduction of John LaForge of Nukewatch. BFUU Social Justice Committee activists Ingrid Kepler-May and James Beatty appear in the Q&A session. Ingrid Kepler-May is in the Q&A segment at around 49:10 of the 58 minute video. She is in a discussion with speaker John LaForge about the effects of US use of depleted uranium in weapons and armor, particularly how it contaminates the environment and causes birth defects in Iraqi babies. Ingrid witnessed these results first-hand on a visit to hospitals in Iraq. The 58 minutes video was made by Vic Sadot from an audio recording by David Yandle of a John LaForge NukeWatch Book Update presentation by John in Fellowship Hall, Berkeley, CA on Oct. 13, 2016. The event was sponsored by BFUU Social Justice Committee.

There are two a 6 minute excepted videos also posted at YouTube, one of Marion Küpker speaking about the German Peace movement, NATO, Russia, and the situation in Syria; one of the Q&A session with Ingrid Kepler-May talking about where the nuclear arms race is today and about the use of depleted uranium by the United States in weapons and war machinery armour, which when blasted to dust causes birth defects in children and cancers in others who come into contact with the radioactive dust.

It was a stunning and memorable update presentation by John LaForge to celebrate the 2015 re-publication of “Nuclear Heartland”! The book was first published in 1988 to let Americans know where the nuke silos are, and that they make you less secure in contradiction of the stated nuclear “deterrence” goal. This only becomes apparent after you understand the war profiteering and the unacceptable risks involved in nuclear radiation, and the climate of fear needed to promote the arms race.
