Did Nixon order John Lennon's murder?

Richard Nixon's secret battle to deport John Lennon: President feared the Beatle's anti-Vietnam campaigning would swing the 1972 election

In lawyer Leon Wildes new book he discusses how the U.S. government attempted to deport John Lennon (right) and Yoko Ono (left)

John Lennon was nearly deported by the U.S. government as it attempted to make the legendary Beatles frontman's life a living hell, a new book has revealed.
Lawyer Leon Wildes, whose book 'John Lennon vs. The U.S.A.' was released last month, said he had never seen 'the government so determined to remove anyone from the United States'.  

The book written by Wildes, who represented Lennon during an immigration case, explains the Nixon administration's battle to deport Lennon purportedly for an old conviction in the UK for possessing hashish.
But behind the facade of wanting to deport Lennon on the 1968 drug conviction, was the reality that the government feared the musician's influence on young voters in the 1972 election.

Wildes then became Lennon's immigration attorney, who helped him fight deportation in the late 1960s

Lennon had tremendous sway with 18- to 20-year-old voters, just after the election age had been lowered. 

Federal agents with the FBI feared Lennon was heading the to Republican National Convention in Miami that year and warned that he and wife Yoko Ono would be arrested for 'interstate travel in the furtherance of a conspiracy to incite a riot' if they tried to attend. 
It is still unclear to this day if Lennon and Ono ever had plans to attend the RNC but they were politically active. 

The couple moved from London to the Greenwich Village on a temporary visa after Lennon's drug arrest.

In light of this, anxious South Carolina senator Strom Thurmond warned US Attorney General John Mitchell, who oversaw the Immigration and Naturalization Service that Lennon's new ally could be dangerous. 

Days later Lennon's visa was revoked citing Lennon's previous drug conviction.  
Wildes then became Lennon's immigration attorney.  

Lennon told Wildes: 'Everything in our world — we’re artists, you know — now comes up in the USA. 
'It’s like the time of the Impressionist artists when everything took place in Paris, or in early Rome. It’s all here now. 

'This is where it’s at, and we’d love to be here. We just understand that it can’t be arranged.'

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.



In an interview with Inc.com’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
