John Lennon

MIND GAMES: John Lennon & The Manchurian Candidate

Was about to enter into politics right before he was killed. – You can kill the Messenger but you can never kill the Message.  ‘Imagine’; ‘You can say I’m a Dreamer, but I’m not the only one’.

In Ray Coleman’s biography of John Lennon, he quotes the artist circa 1969, “I’d like to be like Christ, [he described himself as a Christian communist] in a pure sense, not in the way Russia or Italy think of Christianity or communism…Every body’s uptight [fearful] and they’re always building these walls around themselves. All you can do is try to break down the walls and show them that there’s nothing there but people… I only know that peace can exist, and the first thing is for the world to disarm…I think I’ll win because I believe in what Jesus said.“-LENNON , McGraw-Hill, 1984. pgs -374-381.

The CIA, MK ultra, and the killing of another messenger of Peace

Not so strange Lennon was not so popular in ‘high places’. His opposition to totalitarian forces killed him….. like Jesus Christ, and all peacelovers after him.

As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
Till you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they’ve tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can’t really function you’re so full of fear

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and class less and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There’s room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me


I Ray Coleman’s biografi om John Lennon, siterer han artisten fra ca. 1969, ‘Jeg liker å være som Kristus, [han beskrev seg selv som en kristen kommunist] i den beste mening av begrepet, ikke på den måten Russland og Italia tror om kommunismen eller kristendommen‘ Alle mennesker er overanspente og fryktfulle og de bygger alltid disse murene rundt seg selv. Alt du kan gjøre er å bryte ned disse murene og vise dem at det er ikke noen annet der enn mennesker’ Jeg vet bare at fred kan bli en realitet, og det første ting verden må gjøre er å ruste ned’ Jeg tror jeg vinner fordi jeg tror på hva Jesus sa.’-LENNON, McGraw-Hill, 1984. pgs -374-381.

Under ungdomsopprøret på 60-tallet forstod de veldig godt at om en ikke er en del av løsningen, så er en en del av problemet.

  1. Coincidence or Conspiracy(?)

    In my research of John Lennon’s life, career and murder, I observed a disturbing entanglement in the following seemingly unrelated areas:

    * John Lennon’s supporting role in the 1967 movie, How I Won the War, which could certainly be viewed as pro-Nazi by Zionist fanatics and the FBI;
    * John Lennon’s and Roman Polanski’s interest in Timothy Leary and LSD;
    * Roman Polanski’s 1968 movie, Rosemary’s Baby, which depicted Jews as satanic witches;
    * John Lennon wrote a song, Dear Prudence, about the sister of Mia Farrow, the actress who played the lead role in Rosemary’s Baby;
    * John Lennon eventually moved into the Dakota, an upscale condominium complex in Manhattan, also the location where Rosemary’s Baby was filmed;
    * The murder of Polanski’s wife, Sharon Tate, and others on August 9-10, 1969. Charlie Manson and members of his hippie commune, also known as the “Manson Family,” were convicted of committing the stated murders;
    * The attempt by L.A. district attorney Vincent Bugliosi to portray the Beatles in a negative light by concocting a bizarre theory, known as Helter Skelter (the title of a Beatle song), as the motive for the Tate murders;
    * John Lennon’s political activism in 1969, namely his two “bed-ins” which were designed largely to protest US involvement in the Vietnam War. The first bed-in was in the presidential suite at the Amsterdam Hilton in March 1969 during John and Yoko’s honeymoon. The second was in May-June 1969 at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal;
    * The Woodstock Rock Festival occurred August 15–17, 1969, a week after the Tate murders, two months after Lennon’s Montreal bed-in. Woodstock was essentially a huge anti-Vietnam war rally using rock music as the catalyst for political expression.

    The information you are about to read is the only attempt by anyone to connect the dots between the stated events.

    Recently I read a book, Ordered to Return: My Life After Dying, by Dr. George G. Ritchie, JR., MD, who was clinically dead for nine minutes in 1943 at the age of twenty-one.* He remembers being outside his body, floating in the air, passing through an extremely bright light, and seeing Jesus, who promptly asked: “What have you done with your life?” Ritchie explained that Jesus was asking what he had done to serve God, to improve humanity. Young Ritchie was unable to answer the question because at that time, he had not done anything for the good of mankind. Jesus ordered him to return and spread the word of God. Assuming John had a similar experience on the night of his death (December 8, 1980), I expect he was able to give quite a lengthy response to the question that a younger Dr. Ritchie was unable to answer. John answered the question in many of his songs: “War is over, if you want it….All we are saying is give peace a chance.” And I have little doubt of the response John received:

    Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
