    Under a legal theory endorsed by the 5th Circuit, Martin Luther King Jr. could have been liable for other people’s violence.In his last protest march, Martin Luther King Jr. led a parade of demonstrators down Beale Street in Memphis, lending his support to striking sanitation workers. After a few young black men started breaking storefront windows, the indiscriminate police response killed one suspected looter and injured dozens of protesters. Under a legal theory blessed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, King could have been held liable for the unanticipated harm that ensued from that March 1968...
  • Black-Jewish Relations: Martin Luther King & Israel

    Speaking at the annual convention of the Rabbinical Assembly in 1968, Dr. King said: The response of some of the so-called young militants does not represent the position of the vast majority of Negroes. There are some who are color-consumed, and they see a kind of mystique in blackness or in being colored, and anything non-colored is condemned. We do not follow that course ... Peace for Israel means security, and we must stand with all of our might to protect its right to exist, its territorial integrity. I see Israel, and never mind saying it, as one of the...

    ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.’ Sixty years ago today, Martin Luther King stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC and delivered those immortal words, the soaring peroration of his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, to hundreds of thousands of people gathered in the sweltering heat at the March on Washington. Uttered at the high point of the civil-rights movement, King’s words gave a profound moral clarity...

    Roger Stone was on Jack Posobiec’s show with stories about the JFK assassination. He discussed his theory that Lee Harvey Oswald did not shoot Kennedy and that the Mafia was involved. One thing that did strike a chord is when he said that then-President Trump saw the classified files and told him, “I can’t tell you it’s so horrible. You wouldn’t believe it.” Jack Posobiec interviewed Roger Stone about the JFK assassination. Roger Stone wrote an entire book about the investigation. JACK POSOBIEC: Joe Biden “has extended the classification of files regarding the JFK assassination, but what many people may...

    The assassination of Martin Luther King Jr, on the 4th April 1968, lead to many very violent criminal reactions on April 5th and the following few days. In the King assassination riots, there were 43 deaths, over 3,000 injuries and over 20,000 people arrested. President Lindon Johnson said of that extreme reaction: “What did you expect? ....... When you put your foot on a man’s neck and hold him down for three hundred years, and then you let him up, what’s he going to do? He’s going to knock your block off.” King had said “……. in spite of temporary...

    Because he was such an icon, he was able to have Black artists on TV when they were often not welcomed nor wanted elsewhere.I cannot recall when I first heard the name Ed Sullivan, but it certainly had to have been when I was a ghetto youth coming of age in the 1970s and 1980s. I initially connected his name with music superstars Elvis Presley and The Beatles, and their now legendary appearances on his variety show. I was intrigued by how he introduced musical guests, his mightily distinctive diction, his genuinely low-key demeanor. But I had no clue, truly,...

    Fifty Senate Republicans and two Democrats blocked President Biden's bill to federalize all elections in order to mandate changes that will make vote fraud easier—by eliminating photo ID requirements, legalizing ballot harvesting, increasing the quantity of mail-in ballots, and blocking regular purges of deceased, moved, and inactive voters from the rolls. There is no question that the "reforms" the Democrats want will increase the number of ballots that will be counted. The Democrats' animosity to trying to ensure that only legal votes are counted contradicts polls showing that nearly 80% of black voters favor ID verification before accepting a ballot...

    It was one of his two most famous speeches, and it was his last. On April 3, 1968, the night before his assassination, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered an impromptu speech at the Mason Temple in Memphis in the midst of a sanitation workers strike. The event was the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) annual April Call. Known as the “Mountaintop” speech, Dr. King spoke without notes for nearly 45 minutes. His conclusion is probably the best-known part. “But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I...

    After finding evidence that the "man of God" and "moral conscience of our nation," the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., participated in the rape of a parishioner, engaged in numerous sex orgies, received cash payments from known communists, and admitted that he was a Marxist, King biographer and Pulitzer Prize–winning author David Garrow wrote of King, "There is no question that a profoundly painful reckoning and reconsideration inescapably awaits." *snip* To have been a Christian minister, it is illuminating that King's ideology is anathema to Christianity, manliness, and American freedom. Consider this: after attempting to integrate an all-White hotel...
