after delivering a rousing speech to an overflowing ballroom
of exuberant campaign supporters thanking them for helping
him win the big prize of the California Democratic primary
for President, the junior Senator from New York State,
Francis Kennedy was shot at by an assassin
four times within a couple of inches. He was wounded by
three of the bullets with the fourth bullet going through
his jacket. The exact time was 12:15am Wednesday morning
June 5, 1968. The location was the kitchen pantry of the
Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. I was only a 10 year
old boy back then, but I somehow knew the day Bobby Kennedy
died, the next day, Thursday June 6, 1968, was the day
the United States died.
this assassination of Bobby Kennedy didn't happen, he
would have been the Democratic presidential nominee in
1968, he then would have faced the Republican presidential
nominee, Richard Milhouse Nixon, in the November election.
Bobby most likely would have won and been the next President
of the United States. Since Bobby was opposed to the Viet
Nam War ( police action ), this would have
put an end to it in 1969 instead of 1975.
death by assassination of Bobby Kennedy occurred only
63 days after the Reverend Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in
Memphis and also less then 5 years after his older brother,
Fitzgerald Kennedy, was assassinated in Dallas.
United States has never been the same since. The dreams
of a better, more democratic life for all Americans was
brutally slain over and over and over again. We were then
and we still are living in a fascistic country that is
run by an evil military industrial corporate complex that
assassinate leaders for not playing ball, their war machine
ball. On Monday December 8, 1980 the demonic force struck
again, this time assassinating the greatest singer songwriter
and the most influential political artist of our time,
what is dangerous about extremists
is not that they are extreme,
but that they are intolerant."
discovered an interesting fact about the last three major
assassinations, King, Kennedy and Lennon were all executed
during the time of a lame duck presidency. President Lyndon
Baines Johnson became a lame duck on March 31, 1968 when
he said he would not run for reelection even if the Democrats
wanted him to. Four days later Martin was assassinated.
Sixty-three days later Bobby was assassinated. On November
4, 1980 President James
Earl Carter lost the presidential election
to Ronald Wilson Reagan, thus becoming a lame duck. Thirty-four
days later the heartbeat of music for a generation, John
Winston Lennon was assassinated.
every single major assassination these black-op conspirator
killers have actually had the balls to blame it on some
poor deranged lone gunman. They have had a patsy or a
mind controlled Manchurian candidate fall guy for the
last four assassinations. Lee Harvey Oswald for President
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, James Earl Ray for Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr., Sirhan Bishara Sirhan for Senator Robert
Francis Kennedy and Mark David Chapman for John
one has since dared to speak out too loud or long about
the multitude of critical environmental problems or the
vastly unjust inequality that exists for most of the people
on Earth. Everyone now is pretty much, playing ball. There
was only one person left in America who could have really
upset the status quo if he wished to. Then ever so conveniently
on July 16, 1999 John
Fitzgerald Kennedy Junior's plane took a dive
into the Atlantic Ocean.

but each of us can work to change a small portion of
events, and in the total of all those acts will be
written the history of this generation."
you Bobby for finally understanding the needs of all Americans,
especially the poorer discriminated southern blacks. Bless
you Bobby for finally realizing the needlessness of the
Viet Nam war and promising to end it if you became President.
Bless you Bobby for having the courage to run for President
when you knew what would most likely happen to you, and
it did, on Thursday June 6, 1968, the day you and the
United States died.

is from numberless diverse acts of courage
and belief that human history is shaped.
Each time a person stands up for an ideal,
or acts to improve the lot of others,
or strikes out against injustice,
he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope,
and crossing each other from a million
different centers of energy and daring,
those ripples build a current
which can sweep down the mightiest walls
of oppression and resistance."
