    The Assassination of Martin Luther King


    April 4 of 67 Martin voiced opposition against the Vietnam War,
    He also planned to march on Washington addressing the struggles of the poor,
    Trying to inspire America to help citizens they generally ignore,
    One year later it inspired America to murder him, because America is evil to the core.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    J. Edgar Hoover tried to force Martin to commit suicide,
    By threatening him with pictures where his image was compromised,
    They sent audio tapes of him with other women to Coretta to remove her from his side,
    When none of this worked Hoover and the f.b.i. used homicide.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    J. Edgar Hoover felt he had this King problem solved,
    When they decided to replace King with out being directly involved,
    Sullivan said he knew an educator that would help this evolve,
    He chose Samuel Proctor to groom a replacement if they could make King’s leadership dissolve.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    In the “Bureau” Sullivan said King’s replacement Samuel R. Pierce is an outstanding educator,
    The only problem is that Pierce was a lawyer he’s closer to being a legislator,
    When approached about this he had never talked to anyone about being such a perpetrator,
    What Sullivan really meant, Dean Samuel Proctor would groom a replacement who would be an infiltrator.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    In 63’ at North Carolina A&T Samuel Proctor took Jesse Jackson under his wing,
    Dr. Proctor was teaching Jesse how to be like Martin King,
    When Jesse was there it wasn’t books he was studying,
    It was Martin 101 and the science of informing.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    f.b.i. field office requested to wiretap the S.C.L.C. office in Chicago,
    The f.b.i. headquaters response was no,
    The f.b.i. already had Jesse in Chicago telling them all they wanted to know,
    Jesse had been groomed for Martin’s replacement as mentioned in the f.b.i. memo.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Martin snapped on Jesse days before he was shot,
    No one had ever seen Martin get upset and hot,
    In short he told Jesse leave me alone I know you want my spot,
    To save their investment Jesse Jackson, the government carried out the assassination plot.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Martin’s original plans were to stay at the white Holiday Inn,
    The f.b.i. and the media made it look like a sin,
    To save the sanitation protest he chose the black Lorraine motel again,
    His room was changed from 1st to 2nd floor by white Jack Youngblood in blackface,
    posing as an advanced security man.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Jesse sent a message to the Invaders that they had to check out,
    Because they would have to pay for their own rooms it sent the invaders in route,
    Jesse then checked the rooms doing a last minute scout,
    Because the Invaders had guns too and would have shot back without a doubt.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Samuel “Billy” Kyles was an informant for the Memphis police,
    King and his staff were headed to Kyles house for a feast,
    He made sure that King had on a necktie and came out in one piece,
    Then as he said moved from King’s side for a “clear shot” from the beast.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Going to dinner Jesse refused to wear a necktie,
    Memphis police inspector Sam Evans tells us why,
    The memo said those without ties are one of our guys,
    So Judas Jackson dressed his part and Martin King dies.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    America has always been sick and deranged,
    So Martin sought to help the poor by giving us change,
    He was said to be shot from a rooming house which is strange,
    Because there were powder burns in Martin’s wounds which means the shot was close range.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    New York Times April 5, 1968, Jesse said if Martin hadn’t been leaning over the balcony he wouldn’t have been shot in the face,
    At the time of the shooting Ernestine Campbell said she saw something that looked out of place,
    She saw Jesse with one foot on the stairs bent over looking up shoving something in a handbag type case,
    Maybe whatever is in the bag is what left the powder burns trace.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Solomon Jones and Earl Caldwell’s testimony went ignored,
    Because in light of the conspiracy it would bring discord,
    They said the shot came from the bushes as swift as a sword,
    At the time of the shooting the operator had a heart attack at the switch board.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Dr. King had at least 2 entry wounds of the jaw and the throat,
    Hospital attendant said there were 5 or 6 dime sized wounds something we should note,
    Jerry Francisco found races of powder burns in the autopsy that he wrote,
    Judge Joe Brown said “the bullets in the gun were not the bullets in Dr.King” end of quote.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    There were a team of army snipers in Memphis that day,
    Ready to take orders from the green berets,
    Invader infiltrator Marrell McColough worked for the c.i.a.,
    The shot came from Raul not James Earl Ray.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    To get the shot from the rooming house the rifle’s butt
    would have to be 6 inches into the wall,
    At the time of the shooting Charlie Stevens was drunk from alcohol,
    The f.b.i. used money and liquor to get him to say he saw Ray running in the hall,
    So the f.b.i. held his story up so it wouldn’t stumble, pass out, or fall.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Grace Walden proved the f.b.i. star witness told a lie,
    She saw the man in the hall, it wasn’t Ray standing before her eyes,
    So Mark Lane she and Ray’s attorney almost caused her to die,
    By planning to send her to his other client Jim Jones to drink some cyanide.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    The Mafia connection can be traced through Frank Liberto,
    Who had a brother in New Orleans that connected to Carlos Marcello,
    Who was the New Orleans mob boss, which is where Raul and Ray would go,
    Liberto over the phone said shoot him on the balcony and go to
    New Orleans to collect your dough.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    There were 2 that got out of Memphis only 1 caught the blame,
    Joseph Creighterdon put Jesse Jackson on his military plane,
    James Earl Ray got out of Memphis in a white mustang,
    Jesse left Memphis to replace Martin and acquire some new found fame.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Glenda Grabo said Dr.King & J.F.K. was murdered by Raul,
    James Earl Ray said the same some called him a fool,
    Grabo identified Raul standing next to Oswald which is a researchers jewel,
    Because as suspected he used Oswald & Ray as patsies and tools.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    They cut down the bushes in the middle of the night,
    So when the sun rose again they were no longer in sight,
    That’s tampering with a crime scene that ain’t right,
    They destroyed the shooters nest and gave view of the rooming house before day light.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    Steve Cokely is an authority on these facts,
    If you seek more information it’s him you should ask,
    He researched Martin King’s assassination for the truth and for blacks,
    He’s black people’s researcher that is sharp as a tack.

    America has had over 30 years to come clean,
    Now here’s the truth about who murdered Martin Luther King.

    While intriguing, such accusations are libelous.

    I say nothing that I cannot back up. If America wants to give me the chance to prove these truths , I'm ready. The question is do they(American government) want these truths revealed to the public? If it got out that they(American government) conspired to murder an non-violent man that might become a national security issue, it might spark a .......REVOLUTION!!!
    But on second thought we have a history of having leaders murdered at the hands of the white man and we do nothing about it! We know his criminal past and present and never refer to him as being "LIBELLOUS" against blacks or anyone else for that matter. Check out the sources on my CD "Golden Seal" to understand the poem.

    nice work

    below is from my poem My Life © 2005 this part speaks to the death of Dr. King

    "...Follow the money trail
    So stop look and listen
    To this song of betrayal
    The spirit may have been strong
    But evidently the mind was frail
    Just as we were primed, poised, and positioned
    To balance the scales
    The mountaintop of genocide, hatred, and injustice
    We were ready to scale
    But on the April night in Memphis
    The train of righteousness was derailed
    Derailed by modern day Judases with
    Motives that many of us found suspect
    Blood on their hands but never suspect
    Big fros and raised fists
    And the media on your nut sack
    Rainbow warriors and bean pies
    Integration on the fast track
    They were told they had Plausible deniability
    Basically blackmail by virtue of FBI phone taps

    At first glance these lines may be raw
    But I remember that in an instant a mighty movement was stalled
    Ignoring karma one of our most ancient of laws
    As a renaissance scribe once put it
    It was the cruelest cut of all
    As one man’s pride
    Caused another man’s fall
    A bullet shattered the great man’s jaw
    In the aftermath
    Images of traitors pointing and standing tall
    But on that spring day the image I recall
    Is how -
    Is how at the funerals they wept
    It was scandalous with what happened next
    They begin to collect
    Government checks
    That financed their organizations

    Organizations that we thought were in step
    And would honor and respect
    The blood of fallen leaders
    But this time it wasn’t a man named Peter
    In the shadow warming his hands

    Who would pay the price?
    As the **** crowed thrice

    The prophet Isaiah said out of the root of Jessie
    Little did he know
    The fruit would be messy
    Still left standing
    On the balcony of the Lorraine
    The faithful one would claim
    Ignoring the shame
    As fallen prophets
    Equal profits
    And all the dreams and dreamers in the world
    Apparently won’t stop it..."
