This is a disturbing story containing both facts and revelant theories that point sadly to direct U.S. Government involvement in the murder (ultimately an assassination) of John Lennon and the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan,where such events occured just months apart.

Although both incidents appear to be completely unrelated as far as motive goes, there does run a common thread between them. Here is a disturbing yet plausible look inside a dark period in American culture where I try to piece together the truth that is hidden underneath government coverups.

John Lennon was considered a radical antiwar activist who took part in protests with members of both the White & Black Panther Party's circa 1971-72.Nixon,fearing Lennon's activities would cost him the 1972 election, ordered FBI director J.Edgar Hoover to wire tap John & Yoko's phones and to have them followed everywhere they went to scare Lennon into stopping his activism.

A memo from J.Edgar Hoover proves this reality:
April 10, 1972 memorandum from J. Edgar Hoover to the FBI's New York office, Hoover orders his agents to "...promptly initiate discrete efforts to locate subject [Lennon] and remain aware of his activities and movements".

In 1972 both Republican California Governor Ronald Reagan and President Nixon were very anxious and aggravated by the escalation in John Lennon's anti Government actions as the year grew older. The CIA had discovered that John was personally funding radical Chicago 7 member Rennie Davis's plans to disrupt the National Republican Convention in San Diego, California.

Here is a copy of the actual CIA document describing John Lennon funding anti-war activists:

As of note,Calif. Gov. Reagan disliked hippie activists with this 1969 defining moment from wikipedia:
Reagan was involved in high-profile conflicts with the protest movements of the era. On May 15, 1969, during the People's Park protests at UC Berkeley, Reagan sent the California Highway Patrol and other officers to quell the protests, in an incident that became known as "Bloody Thursday". Reagan then called out 2,200 state National Guard troops to occupy the city of Berkeley for two weeks in order to crack down on the protesters.When the one activist group requested distribution of food to the poor, Reagan joked, "It's just too bad we can't have an epidemic of botulism."

Returning to the year 1972,the U.S. Government tried to use an old pot possession conviction to have Lennon deported to the UK. The charge led him to court deportation proceedings held by the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

And in July of 1973, the INS ordered John Lennon to leave U.S. in 60 days based on his past drug misdemeanor conviction(1968,Cannabis aka marijuana)

The legalities of the case went on for 2 years until the deportation order was overturned in the U.S. courts in Oct. 1975. Lennon was subsequently issued his green card in 1977. This was detailed in the excellent documentary "The U.S. vs. John Lennon", which airs on VH-1 Classic frequently.

When Jimmy Carter was inaugurated as president on 19 January 1977, Lennon and Ono attended the Inaugural Ball.

In 1980, John Lennon made a remarkable musical comeback with the LP "Starting Over".The timing would be a curse for Lennon, as a team of paranoid war mongering right wing administrators would be back in the White House.

By 1980,the Republicans returned to power with the November election of ex-California Governor Ronald Reagan and VP George HW Bush ,whom was was ironically bitterly defeated by Reagan in the NRP race for Presidential nomination but that didn't stop Reagan from asking Bush to run as his VP, much to Nancy Reagan's disapproval. More on this later.

One month later,on Dec.8th,1980,John Lennon was assassinated by an MK Ultra CIA asset named Mark David Chapman who had ties to World Vision,a far-right evangelical missionary.

John W. Hinckley Sr., was also the president of the board for World Vision & the father of John Hinckley Jr., who was later charged with the attempted assassination of Reagan.It get's stranger. Hinckley senior helped finance Bush Senior's Presidential campaign earlier that year and Bush's son & younger brother of W., Neil Bush, was friends with Scott Hinckley ,the brother of John Hinckley jr.

Scott and Neil were scheduled to have dinner together the night after the assassination attempt on Reagan.Of course with Hinckley senior being the President of World Vision, his son attended this missionary camp with Mark David Chapman. Bush Senior was CIA director in 1976 and had learned all about MK-Ultra CIA brainwashing techniques to set up Manchurian candidates.
