Kennedy and King Family Members and Advisors Call for Congress to Reopen Assassination Probes

- Advertisement -

Please scroll down to see the "Call" text and see attached for list of signers

On the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a group of over 60 prominent American citizens is calling upon Congress to reopen the investigations into the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Signers of the joint statement include Isaac Newton Farris Jr., nephew of Reverend King and past president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference; Reverend James M. Lawson Jr., a close collaborator of Reverend King; and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, children of the late senator.

Other signatories include G. Robert Blakey, the chief counsel of the House Select Committee on Assassinations, which determined in 1979 that President Kennedy was the victim of a probable conspiracy; Dr. Robert McClelland, one of the surgeons at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas who tried to save President Kennedy's life and saw clear evidence he had been struck by bullets from the front and the rear; Daniel Ellsberg, the Pentagon Papers whistleblower who served as a national security advisor to the Kennedy White House; Richard Falk, professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University and a leading global authority on human rights; Hollywood artists Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, Rob Reiner and Oliver Stone; political satirist Mort Sahl; and musician David Crosby.

Never, to my knowledge, has such a prestigious and influential group of people come together to demand the truth about political assassinations in the United States.

Please spread the word about this document and planned ongoing effort, and let's start by demanding that the JFK Records Act, which was unanimously passed by Congress in 1972, be carried out. It required that all classified documents be released to the public by October 2017 (45 years is enough time to review those files, don't you think?) Thousands of those documents remain classified in blatant violation of the Act, and with the blessing of President Donald Trump. What makes him think he is above the law?

This, if pursued to the fullest, is far more important than the Mueller probe or talk of impeachment.

It needs to be pursued in the dame manner as the Church investigations.

Any crimes alleged against Trump is a farce without a deep and honest seatch for the truth regarding state assadsination in and outside the USA. This should include a truth and reconciliation with our national herotage of slavery and genocide of indigenous peoples.

One would think Trump would be all in favor of this, as it - correctly - exposes the deep state and its nefarious deeds,past and probably present. Congratulations on bringing out a team of investigators, which could not have have been in any way easy.

I know who killed all of them, the United States government! Why? Because it wanted war so the big corporations could make money. There was one government big shot that was at the killings of three of them, Pappy Bush and the CIA.

There has been some conjecture that while GHWB's health was failing he was actually put to death, because of crimes, including his involvement in the JFK assassination and other crimes against humanity. Videos of his funeral show several individuals, including GWB, Clinton, Obama, and others, receiving envelopes which upon them reading them all appears extremely in shock. Some feel they got word of GHWB's being put to death.

It may well be these crimes and others are being investigated out of the reach of the Presstitute Media Propagandists who have been doing their job by keeping crimes like these hidden and out of view of the populace.

Maybe someday we will know the truth about these assassinations, 9/11, and other atrocities against our nation and our people. We can only hope.

P.S. Pablo, it comes as no surprise that the video on your link does not appear. Apparently, it's content is not meant for us to know.

Yes, there is speculation that George H.W. Bush's death was an execution--same thing with McCain's. The term "McCained" even has entered parlance to describe such an event--the clandestine execution of a corrupt, high-ranking public-official who has engaged in treasonous acts against America. Think "Arkancided," without the ridiculous two-shots-to-the-back-of-the-head suicide connotation.

I have an opinion on how H.W.and McCain died, of course. Regarding the latter, who has heard of someone announce they will quit taking cancer medicine one day, and then dying the next? Such a swift reaction seems unlikely, at best, given that such announcements are made to cushion the shock and prepare the public for the inevitable.

Regarding the 9/11 grand jury, Dennis, here are some more links to supplement the defective one I sent earlier:

"Hope is a Great Source of Strength" - Simon Murray.

Every Representative and Senator in Congress, and the President, would finally arrive at the "third stage" of accepting the truth about 9/11 = "knew it all along", was preset explosives and precisely timed demolitions going off in all three towers and was not the office fires or the two planes that brought the three towers down like the officials said.

Why isn't this covered in mainstream news sites? The list of signers is prestigious.

Your question answers the significance of the Presstitute Media Propagandists. What they do report is propaganda, what they don't is significant news.

A google search turns up a small number of websites reporting on this. None of them is well-known.


A bing search turns up a significantly larger list of websites reporting on this.


You gotta wonder if google censors websites considered too extreme (fake news) by the powers-that-be. I acknowledge that this is a difficult issue. Censorship is bad but so is easy access to propaganda and fake news (from Fox News or Russia or Trump or wherever). I suppose that from a constitutional point of view, censorship should be minimal.

We have needed fair and unbiased investigations of President and Senator Kennedy, Dr. King, and Malcolm X's assassinations since they first happened. The plutocratic oligarchs, who stood to make billions in Vietnam and elsewhere, by exploiting the poor regardless of race, creed, color, or gender, have used the differences that Dr. King worked so hard to eliminate from our minds, and use them to drive wedges between us.

These crimes IMHO, were not the acts of mad loners, or a small group of political opponents, but the carefully orchestrated work of men whose political and economic power and position was threatened by these four individuals and their desire to change the way we looked at and accepted our worldview. Most of the movers and shakers of these particular events are long since gone, but their successors in malice and avarice live on today, destroying the people that these men loved and fought for so hard.
