FBI & Memphis Police Have Admitted Their Role in the Assassination of Dr. King

The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was one of the opening acts which plunged 1968 into a year of turmoil. Coming on the heels of the Tet Offensive which showed the war in Vietnam to be in disarray, and President Johnson's decision not to seek re-election, King's assassination was itself soon followed by the murder of Robert Kennedy, violence at the Democratic National Convention, and a general unraveling of the country into a period of violence and despair.
Like the other assassinations of the 1960s, the King murder had its "lone nut," in this case James Earl Ray, an escaped convict who purchased the rifle found near the assassination scene and was caught in flight two months later. But, also like the other assassinations, evidence of conspiracy was easily found, despite being ignored by government investigators.

The Assassination


In the early evening of April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed by a single shot which struck his face and neck. He was standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, where he had come to lead a peaceful march in support of striking sanitation workers. About an hour later, he was pronounced dead at 7:05 PM at St. Joseph Hospital.

Shortly after the murder, a bundle was dropped near the door of Canipe's Amusement Co. near the assassination scene, and a white Mustang sped away. Memphis police officers found the bundle to contain a .30-06 rifle, ammunition, a pair of binoculars, and other items. The rifle had been purchased in Birmingham by a Harvey Lowmeyer, later determined to be one of several aliases used by Ray.

Pursuit of the white Mustang was thwarted by CB radio transmissions which described a high-speed chase between the occupants of a blue Pontiac and the white Mustang, and even describing gunplay between the vehicles. These broadcasts appear to have been a hoax or diversion. The broadcaster of these CB radio transmissions has never been identified.

Ray's Apprehension, Confession, and Conviction


Authorities at first had little to go on. "Harvey Lowmeyer," the purchaser of the rifle found in the bundle, was described as a "white male, 36 years old, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 150 to 160 pounds, black or dark brown hair," a description fitting many people. The FBI's investigation soon focused on an Eric S. Galt, a name used on a registration card at the New Rebel Motel in Memphis. On April 19, fingerprints on the rifle and other items were matched to James Earl Ray, a fugitive from the Missouri State Penitentiary. More than a month passed without Ray being located. Finally, on June 1 the Royal Canadian Mounted Police found a possible photographic match between Ray and a George Raymon Sneyd's Canadian passport. A week later, on June 8, Ray was arrested in Heathrow Airport in London, apparently on his way to Rhodesia.

Ray was extradited to the US to face trial. He replaced his first attorney, Arthur Hanes, with Percy Foreman. Foreman, who had represented more than 400 murder-case defendants, convinced Ray to plead guilty as the only way of avoiding the death penalty. On March 10, 1969, Ray pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and was sentenced to 99 years in prison. A "mini-trial" on that day settled few of the questions which had arisen during the preceding year. And Ray himself hinted at a conspiracy, interrupting the proceedings to saying that while he "agreed to all these stipulations," he did not "exactly accept the theories of Mr. Clark" (the Attorney General)..."I mean on the conspiracy thing." Three days later, Ray recanted his plea and requested a new trial in two letters to Judge Battle. The judge did not act upon these letters, and was found dead at his desk of a heart attack three weeks later, literally with Ray's appeal under his body.

Evidence of Conspiracy


Since recanting his confession three days after giving it, James Earl Ray began claiming his innocence, saying that he did not know King was in Memphis and that his actions had for months been directed by a mysterious person named "Raoul." Beyond Ray's own possibly self-serving statements, though, there are several indications that there was more to the King murder than just Ray. Among these are Ray's sophisticated use of aliases, evidence of framing including a second white Mustang at the assassination scene and the convenient "bundle" of evidence implicating Ray, and several indications that Ray was aided or directed at times. For instance, Ray purchased a Winchester rifle and had it equipped with a scope, and then almost immediately called back and exchanged the rifle the following day for a Remington .30-06, telling the salesman that his "brother" had told him the Winchester was unsuitable. Ray had rejected a .30-06 during his original purchase as too expensive.

Researcher Philip Melanson has written that Ray used aliases which matched actual people living in Montreal, and began using those aliases before he first arrived there during his pre-assassination travels: "four of the five aliases used by Ray in the nine months preceding the crime were real Canadians who lived in close proximity to each other." These people - Eric S. Galt, Raymond George Sneyd, Paul E. Bridgeman - all lived within a couple of miles of each other in Toronto, and all looked very similar to Ray. Galt and Willard, another Toronto resident whose name Ray used, both had scars on the right side of their faces, as Ray did. Though Ray had used aliases throughout his criminal career, there is no evidence Ray had been to Toronto prior to fleeing there after the King murder, and no explanation for how he came to use these particular names.

Other oddities written about by researchers of the case include a second white Mustang, not owned by Ray, which may have been the one seen fleeing the murder scene, as well as the CB radio "hoax" mentioned earlier, and a delivery of an enveloped to Ray by a mysterious "fat man." Some writers have interpreted the evidence as a sophisticated operation which brought Ray into an assassination plot and then left him holding the bag at the scene of King's murder.

There was no eyewitness to the shooting, and there are credibility problems with the sole witness to Ray's allegedly fleeing the roominghouse bathroom from which he is said to have fired the rifle. The slug removed from King's body was never matched to Ray's rifle. The rifle shot was never proven to have come from the bathroom window, and may have come from the bushy area on the ground below.

Ray's skill with a rifle is dubious, and while he did commit armed robbery he had never harmed anyone previously during his criminal endeavors. And the man whose career one author described as "a record of bungled and ludicrously inept robberies and burglaries" purportedly managed to kill King with one perfect shot and then elude authorities for longer than any other American political assassin.

Further, reminiscent of Oswald and the JFK assassination, there appears to be no motive for Ray the loner to kill King. A petty criminal, Ray seems unlikely to have committed the crime purely out of racial hatred, and anecdotes of his racism are thin. The idea that he killed King in order to achieve notoriety is implausible given the lengths to which he went to avoid capture (nearly succeeding). As Ray's brother John told the St. Louis Dispatch following James' arrest: "If my brother did kill King he did it for a lot of money - he never did anything if it wasn't for money."

Skeptics point out that Ray's story of Raoul has never been backed up by any solid evidence, and despite some minor mysteries, concrete and credible evidence tying Ray to any conspiracy has never emerged. The problem here is that the FBI, which conducted much of the initial investigations, was more interested in finding and then convicting Ray than in finding accomplices. The FBI had received death threats against King which it had never shared with the civil rights leader, and it withheld relevant files from later investigations. Beyond the FBI's initial investigation, the only large-scale study of the King murder was undertaken by the House Select Committee on Assassinations. And that body found a "likelihood" of a conspiracy.

The HSCA Investigation


The House Select Committee on Assassinations conducted investigations into the murders of both President John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In the King case, the HSCA wrote about the context of the murder, noting in particular the then-recent revelations of the FBI's COINTELPRO operations and its harassment of Dr. King. Regarding the assassination itself, the HSCA interviewed Ray extensively, along with his brothers and many witnesses and officials. Some of the HSCA's findings were:

·         Ray fired the shot that killed King, from the roominghouse bathroom window.
·          
·         Ray's "Raoul" story was "not worthy of belief, and may have been invented partly to cover for help received from his brothers John and Jerry."
·          
·         There was a "likelihood" of conspiracy. In particular, the HSCA focused on an alleged $50,000 bounty on King's life offered in St. Louis.

Some of these and other HSCA findings are on more solid ground than others. The otherwise-detailed HSCA Final Report is also silent on some issues, most glaringly Ray's sophisticated use of aliases. The alias issue was well-known to the Committee - in executive session Congressman Lehner on one occasion noted that this "would indicate that a rather sophisticated operation was at work, and this would not fit in, as Mr. McKinney has stated, with the background of Ray as we know him..."

The HSCA was also aware of a $100,000 bounty offer on Dr. King which was being offered by the White Knights of Mississippi. A number of post-assassination leads pointed to the possibility that members of the White Knights were involved in some fashion with the attack on Dr. King.
To what extent the HSCA investigated these and other issues, and what they found, is difficult to say at present. There has been no MLK Records Act to match the 1992 JFK Records Act, and thus the HSCA's files on the King investigation remain sealed to this day. The executive session statement quoted above is available by accident, as King-related discussion in these transcripts is typically blacked out.

The Jowers Confession and the Civil Trial


Loyd Jowers, the owner of Jim's Grill located on the ground floor of the building which contained the roominghouse, confessed to involvement in the King assassination on ABC Prime Time Live in 1993. Jowers said that a Mafia-associated Memphis produce dealer named Frank Liberto gave him $100,000 to hire a hitman to kill King. Jowers said he stored the actual assassination rifle in his restaurant, retrieving it from the real killer.

Ray's attorney William Pepper pursued this allegation, and the King family sued Jowers in a wrongful death lawsuit. This resulted in a civil trial in 1999. At the end of that trial, the Judge read the jury's verdict: "In answer to the question did Loyd Jowers participate in a conspiracy to do harm to Dr. Martin Luther King, your answer is yes. Do you also find that others, including governmental agencies, were parties to this conspiracy as alleged by the defendant? Your answer to that one is also yes. And the total amount of damages you find for the plaintiffs entitled to is one hundred dollars. Is that your verdict?" The jury replied: "Yes."
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the King civil trial, coming on the heels of America's obsession with the O.J. Simpson trial, is that this event received almost no coverage in the US media.

In 2000, the Department of Justice investigated the Jowers allegation. Noting inconsistencies in his story, and calling it "the product of a carefully orchestrated promotional effort," the DOJ found the story to be "unsubstantiated."

Joseph Medicine Crow, Tribal War Chief and Historian, Dies at 102
By MIKE McPHATEAPRIL 4, 2016
Joseph Medicine Crow spoke in 2001 at a dedication for a Peace Memorial near the site of the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana.
Joseph Medicine Crow, the last living war chief of the Crow Tribe of Montana and a renowned Native American historian and anthropologist, died on Sunday at a hospice in Billings, Mont. He was 102.
Terry Bullis, the funeral director at Bullis Mortuary in Hardin, Mont., confirmed the death.
Mr. Medicine Crow was the last living person to have heard direct oral testimony from people who were present before the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. His step-grandfather, White Man Runs Him, was among six Crow scouts for George Armstrong Custer.
In 2009, President Obama presented Mr. Medicine Crow with the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, citing his contributions as a World War II service member and the author of seminal works on Native American history. In one wartime incident he stole 50 Nazi SS horses from a German camp, the White House said.
“He was a national treasure,” said Herman J. Viola, a historian who collaborated with Mr. Medicine Crow. “There is simply nobody like him. You meet Joe Medicine Crow, you’re shaking hands with the 19th century.”
Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana said in a tribute on Twitter that Mr. Medicine Crow would “forever serve as an inspiration for all Native Americans — and all Montanans.”
He graduated from Linfield College in McMinnville, Ore., in 1938 and earned a master’s degree in anthropology from the University of Southern California a year later, specializing in the effect of European culture on Native Americans. In 2003, the university awarded him an honorary doctorate.
Mr. Medicine Crow said that he had completed his coursework toward the doctorate and had begun writing his dissertation in the early 1940s, but that he never finished.
“I had an uncle who had other plans for me,” he told The Billings Gazette in 2003. “Uncle Sam.”
Serving in the Army in Europe during the war, he accomplished the four traditional deeds that earn Crow Tribe members the status of “war chief” — one of which is stealing an enemy’s horse.
After the war he worked for the Crow Tribe for several years and became an appraiser for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. He retired in 1982.
Mr. Medicine Crow’s wife, Gloria Morrison Medicine Crow, whom he married in 1947, died in 2009. There was no immediate word on his survivors.
Mr. Medicine Crow, who spoke at the United Nations in 1999, often gave speeches at high schools and colleges about the Battle of the Little Bighorn — also known as Custer’s Last Stand — when Cheyenne and Sioux warriors handed Custer and his cavalrymen a crushing defeat near the Little Bighorn River in Montana territory.
Dr. Viola, a curator emeritus at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, said it was hard to overstate Mr. Medicine Crow’s value as a link to that moment in American history.
“Joe personally knew four of those scouts that had been with Custer,” he said. “So, I mean, how can you deal with that? As a historian, it was unbelievable to meet someone who could really give you insights into that time period.”
Last year, Mr. Medicine Crow attended the groundbreaking for a middle school that was being named in his honor in Billings. He wore an Indian headdress, sunglasses and three medals around his neck.
“Billings is, like me, getting older,” he said, according to The Billings Gazette. “But also, like me, better.”

GREAT FALLS, Mont. — Gilbert Horn Sr., a Native American code talker who returned from World War II to spend decades serving the Fort Belknap Assiniboine Tribe as a judge and council member, has died of natural causes. He was 92.
Horn died Sunday at Northern Montana Care Center in Havre, Kirkwood Funeral Home said. His memorial service was scheduled Wednesday.
Horn was born on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation in 1923. He joined the U.S. National Guard at age 15 as a way to escape the poverty of the reservation. He enlisted in the Army at 17 after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.
Horn was initially trained as a sharpshooter and later received some training in communications and encryption and joined other Indians who used their native languages to send coded messages during World War II. The work of the code talkers remained classified until 1968.
Horn volunteered for service as a member of Merrill's Marauders, a special operations unit of 2,750 men whose mission was to cut Japanese communications and supply lines in the Burmese jungle, the Great Falls Tribune reported.
"It was a fighting unit, ready for action any time," Horn told the Tribune during an interview for a story published in January 2014. "I wanted to go see the war. I didn't want to be in Montana all my life. I wanted to see what's across that big waters called the oceans."
The unit made an 800-mile trek over the Himalaya Mountains into the jungle with only the weapons and supplies they could carry on the 720 mules and horses they brought with them. The Marauders fought through monsoon season. Troops suffered from malaria, dysentery and typhus. Horn was wounded four times.
"There was no support. We didn't have any artillery. They just kept on knocking us down, whittling us down," he said in 2014. "It is hard to believe what we had to go through."
Horn — one of 1,200 soldiers who survived the Marauders' campaign — was awarded a Purple Heart. Each soldier also received a Bronze Star.
Despite his military heroics, when Horn returned to the reservation in June 1945, he said he was "treated like dirt."
Veterans were supposed to be given preferential treatment when applying for certain jobs and qualify for low-interest federal housing loans, but he said that almost never happened.
He worked on his grandparents' farm and received schooling in business management, psychology and legal work.
Horn served on the Assiniboine Treaty Committee for 68 years. He was a member of the Fort Belknap Community Council for 19 years and was a tribal judge for eight years, during which time he wrote the first regulations for the tribe's juvenile court. He was a member of the health board that lobbied for a new clinic and also helped get the Head Start program established on the reservation. One of its buildings was named after Horn, whose Indian name is "Shunk Ta Oba Kni," or "Returns With Prisoner Horse."
In 2013, he received an honorary doctorate in humanitarian services from Montana State University-Northern. In May 2014, he was named the chief of the Fort Belknap Assiniboine Tribe, the first tribal chief in more than 125 years.
Horn is survived by 10 of his 11 children, 37 grandchildren, 71 great-grandchildren and 18 great-great-grandchildren.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz will likely be in Colorado Springs Colorado GOP State convention. John Kasich is expected to be a no show





Donald Trump is close to confirming that he will attend the Colorado GOP State Convention.
State Party Chairman Steve House made the announcement Saturday at the Congressional District 1 convention in Littleton. He cautioned that the arrangements are not yet finalized, but they expect Trump to join Ted Cruz at the event in Colorado Springs.
One candidate who will not attend: Ohio Gov. John Kasich will not attend the convention. Instead, House said, the Kasich campaign is sending former New Hampshire Sen. John Sununu to speak at the party events April 8 and April 9 on his behalf.
The potential for a Trump visit to Colorado — the first of the campaign — has been rumored for days, but House’s statement is the most definitive to date. A Trump campaign spokeswoman said Friday it had no information about a possible Colorado visit.
Trump has no formal campaign organization in Colorado, but his supporters are fervent in their admiration for the candidate.
Cruz confirmed Monday he would address the delegates at the GOP convention. His supporters are expected to win some of the first Colorado national delegates being awarded Saturday at two congressional district conventions. Cruz is also the favorite among potential national delegates at the state convention, giving him the opportunity to win the 19 national delegates that are needed to claim victory in Colorado.

Why So Many Denver International Airport Conspiracy Theories?

Denver International Airport Conspiracy Theories

Recently featured on The Travel Channel’sAmerica Declassified, there are a number of conspiracy theories that capture attention worldwide. Perhaps a most intriguing theory for those living in the United States is the presence of a secret bunker located under the Denver Airport. Let’s take a look at theories that encapsulate this hidden bunker that no longer remains “hidden.” We will discuss not only the reasoning behind this bunker’s presence but we will also look at the abundance of occult symbols that can be found throughout the airport.

Background on Denver Airport

Denver International Airport, often referred to as DEN or DIA, is located in Denver, Colorado and is the largest airport in the United States. The total area of the airport is 53 square miles which also makes DIA the second largest airport in the world behind King Fahd International Airport in Saudi Arabia. As of 2010, Denver International was noted as the fifth busiest airport in the world with more than 635,000 aircraft movements.
The Denver International airport began life in the early 1980’s as the Denver Regional Council of Governments began their search for an area to build the new metro airport. The outlay of the first $60 million was authorized in September of 1989. A number of delays set the construction of the airport back and it wasn’t until February 28, 1995 that Denver International Airport opened and replaced the original airport, Stapleton. The construction of the airport came to nearly $2 billion over budget.


The Runways of the Denver International Airport

One very noticeable point that has repeatedly been brought to light is the layout of the runways of the airport. The shape of the six current runways at the airport is laid out in the shape of a modified swastika.

The Artwork in Denver International Airport

One of the most noticeable and questionable features of the airport is the unorthodox artwork that adorns its walls. Murals that can be viewed in the baggage claim area feature content that, according to some, feature future military oppression and a one world government similar to the concept of “big brother.” The most memorable of these pieces is a large green soldier of sorts with an eagle symbol on his hat, a bayonet tipped gun and a large curved sword in the other hand. Underneath the soldier are signs of poverty and distress, a woman clutching her baby and children sleeping in ruins. Viewers of the piece state that it appears to represent themes of future military oppression and a one world government. The artist of the piece, Leo Tanguma, however claims that the mural and others like it represent man-made destruction of the environment and genocide while the people of the world come together to live in peace. The two large murals are entitled “In Peace and Harmony with Nature” and “The Children of the World Dream of Peace.”

The Dedication Marker

Within the Denver International Airport there is a dedication marker which is inscribed with the compasses and square associated with the Freemasons. Additionally this marker lists two of the grand lodges of Freemasonry located in Colorado. This marker reads:
  • New World Airport Commission
  • Contributors: Martin Marietta Aeronautics, Fentress Bradburn Architects, Zimmerman Metals
Interestingly enough, according to multiple sources the “New World Airport Commission” does not exist.

The Suitcase Demon

Among all of the odd decor of Denver International Airport is a statue of an open suitcase. Within this suitcase is a honed demon with its head in its hands.

The Bunkers

The thing that most intrigues conspiracy theorists about Denver International Airport is the presence of five bunker type buildings below the airport. Blueprints exist of these five buildings that were buried at the beginning of DIA construction. Each of the five buildings were built completely, but then it was decided that they were positioned incorrectly and they were buried. Conspiracy theorists question why these buildings were buried rather than demolished as would usually be the case.
When asked about the underground buildings, airport authorities claim that the buildings are being used for storage and while this may be true, there are two interesting things about this. Firstly, no one denies that these underground buildings exist. Secondly, rumors abound that these underground “storage buildings” are being set up as bunkers.
So what are these bunkers for? It depends who you ask. Conspiracy theorists believe whole heartedly that the 360,000 square foot bunker was built by the “New World Order” to house the elites of society were the economy to collapse or nuclear holocaust to take place. Of course there is no actual proof to this belief, but there are a number of interesting points to note about the airport and the bunkers that lie beneath it.

Interesting Points to Note about the Denver International Airport and the Bunkers

President Obama and Comet Elenin

According to online source “The Chive” when Comet Elenin passed the planet Earth, just missing by 22 million miles, President Obama was in Denver. It is possible that had the comet struck Earth the impact would have been catastrophic; however, the President was in Denver where some believe an underground bunker has existed for some time. According to these conspiracy theorists, Denver houses the largest and most advanced bunker to exist within the United States and it is no coincidence that this is exactly where the president was taken when potential disaster loomed.
Correction: According to Wikipedia and The White House’s website, Obama was in Washington D.C. on the date that Comet Elenin passed the earth (October 16, 2011). He and his family were attending the dedication ceremony for Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Was Denver International Airport Necessary?

Another interesting concern that many conspiracy theorists have is the necessity of DIA in the first place. At the time of its construction, Denver residents utilized Stapleton airport which was six miles away from Denver. Many claim that with another airport within such a short distance that there was no need for the new airport to be built at all unless it was being used to cover up another more secretive construction project like the five bunker buildings below it.

The Funding of Denver International Airport

While the capstone located at Denver International Airport states that the airport was funded by the New World Airport Commission, no one actually knows who this is. There is no record of this commission ever existing with exception of the capstone’s inscription. Consequently there is no solid evidence that points to who funded the 4.8 billion dollar construction project.

The Location of Denver Airport

When looking at the overall lay of the land, Denver is located within reachable distance of both the East and West coast. Denver provides mountainous terrain that can provide a strategic viewpoint as well as a level of protection to those who take shelter in the bunkers should a “doomsday” type event take place.

The Signs…

In addition to the mysterious capstone and what seem to be foreshadowing murals, those who pull up to Denver International Airport will note a giant blue mustang. While many will make the connection with the Denver Broncos and the wild-looking horse that is reared up on its hind legs, conspiracy theorists see something else entirely. The blue cast-fiberglass sculpture is 32 feet tall and weighs 9,000 pounds and was sculpted by New Mexico artist Luis Jimenez. This giant horse rears up with red fiery eyes and resembles one of the horses of the apocalypse as lights from below highlight its bony ribcage and contrast its terrifying eyes.

The Australian Antigen Reference

Another sign that can be found within the airport and is often interpreted as being innocent. The sign sits directly in front of one of the murals. The mural is interpreted by some to represent a world of biological warfare as a giant soldier stands in his gas mask above helpless children. On the floor in front of this mural is what looks like a cart that would be found in a gold mine and it is inscribed with the letters AU AG. This representation leads onlookers to believe that the inscription refers to gold and silver. Conspiracy theorists believe that the inscription refers to the deadly hepatitis strain Australia Antigen AKA AUAG. AUAG was discovered by one of the founders of the airport and is believed to have potential as a weapon should biological warfare ever break out. Coincidentally, this inscription sits in front of the “biological warfare” mural.

A New CIA Base?

News headlines have touted for some time plans for the CIA to move their headquarters to Denver. According to a story in the Washington Post, a U.S. Intelligence official has confirmed the plan for the move and stated that it was being made for “operational reasons.” According to sources around $20 million has been budgeted to help to relocate employees of the agency. Reasoning for the move has been made and includes the following explanations:
  • Moving the CIA to Denver would provide new ways to operate under cover.
  • Moving to Denver would also help to stop the growth of the CIA headquarters and headquarters-based group-think.
No finalized plans have been made for the move as of yet but some former CIA employees criticize the move stating that it makes no sense and it would cause more of a disconnect. Is the tentative move of this domestic division strategic or is it more simply a way to convene more elites around the large underground bunker?

Where is the “Sanity?”

Many people who hear about theories behind the Colorado bunker question the sanity of those who claim its existence. The truth is however, that similar bunkers have been proven to exist. These bunkers, built during the Cold War like the bunker underneath the Greenbrier Hotel, were designed to give shelter to the elite should “the time” come. So is it really so farfetched to believe that similar projects could exist today?

Key World Events Leading Up To the Scouting Of The Airport Location

In the time leading up to the scouting of the airport location, from 1980 to 1983, a number of key world events took place including:

1979

  • The Ayatollah Khomeini takes power in Iran and introduces Islamic law
  • Soviets invade Afghanistan
  • Skylab fell into the Indian Ocean
  • Three Mile Island partial meltdown
  • Radical militants of the Wahhabi sect of Islam stormed the grand mosque of Mecca.

1980

  • The Summer Olympics in USSR which the US boycotted.
  • Turner Cable Network begins the first all news service.
  • Ronald Reagan is elected.
  • Mt. Saint Helens erupts.
  • Sadam Hussein launches war against Iran for close to a decade over oil rights.
  • The US shows its response to the Soviet Union’s support of war in Afghanistan by suspending sales of grain to them.
Did these significant events influence the decision to build a secret underground bunker to protect the social elite? It is very possible, yet until someone is able to provide solid proof, speculation is all we have to turn to. Well, speculation and the fact that editors of The Chive received a mysterious phone call from “Government Affairs” shortly after publishing their article on Denver International Airport, a phone call by a caller who hung up as soon as the phone was answered…
