"Dr. Pepper has waged a 37-year struggle for truth and justice on behalf of another scapegoat, James Earl Ray--the alleged assassin of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.--and the King family. This book is the culmination of that effort and reveals the truth about that assassination."--Sirhan Sirhan

Let's put it in Canadian university classrooms and on the desk of every Canadian MP and senator in Ottawa.
Our government has forces of RCMP and CSIS at hand to research this monumental book to help us decide how to be neighbour to the murderous Deep State located to the south of us.
It's possible Canada is also under the control of similar organized criminals. Why else would Canada remain silent when this information is available?
Until I discovered the struggles of Dr. William Pepper to expose the truth about the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I had believed the official reports.
Now I know we cannot put any faith in mainstream media. They have been covering up the crime since 1968. (Several other crimes as well).
How could we not know that a jury found forces within FBI and US military guilty of the MLK murder? We don't know because media covered it up.
How could the name of Lee Harvey Oswald on-screen murderer Jack Ruby show up in the MLK murder plot? Media don't want us to know; that's why.
Why did Rev. Jesse Jackson not sue Dr. Pepper when accused by Dr. William Pepper of setting up Dr. King for the murder by having MLK move to a suite that was an easy target?
Unbelievable:-Dr. King did not die of a gun-shot wound. No, he survived the shooting; he was dispatched in hospital to ensure he did not return to the streets.
Unbelievable:- J Edgar Hoover sent a large suitcase of cash to the warden of the jail to pay for the "escape" of James Earl Ray to set up a "patsy" for the murder of MLK.
All planned to stop MLK from leading a protest sit-in at the White House in Washington DC. designed to stop the war in Vietnam.
The Deep State military industrial complex wanted to prolong the war for drugs and profit.
Oh, by the way, I found an error in the book. There is no "Maize" prison in Northern Ireland. The place is called the Maze Prison.
This book is a must, get your copy, absorb the material, then demand your MP and senator bring this up in the House.
With virtually no help from the mainstream media and very little from the justice system, Pepper was able to piece together what really happened on April 4, 1968 in Memphis right down to who gave the order and supplied the money, how the patsy was chosen, and who actually pulled the trigger. Without this information, the truth about King's assassination would have been buried and lost to history. Witnesses would have died off, taking their secrets with them, and the official lie that King was the victim of a racist lone gunman named James Earl Ray would have remained 'fact.'
Thanks to Pepper, we know that Ray took the fall for a murder he did not commit. We know that a member of the Memphis Police Department fired the fatal shot and that two military sniper teams that were part of the 902ndMilitary Intelligence Group were sent to Memphis as back-ups should the primary shooter fail. We have access to the fascinating account of how Pepper came to make contact with Colonel John Downie (he had to work through a third party), the man in charge of the military part of the plot and Lyndon Johnson's former Vietnam briefer. We also learn that as part of the operation, photographs were actually taken of the shooting and that Pepper came very close to getting his hands on those photographs.
Pepper chronicles in the book how a disinformation campaign has featured the collaboration of many mainstream journalists over almost half a century. And the most stunning revelation in The Plot to Kill King ' which some may question because the account is second hand ' is that King was still alive when he arrived at St. Joseph's Hospital and that he was killed by a doctor who was supposed to be trying to save his life. It makes fascinating reading.
The investigation shows definitively that James Earl Ray did not kill King. Instead, he was a petty criminal who was a perfect 'follower' and therefore an ideal choice to be the patsy. Loyd Jowers, would later admit to being part of the conspiracy to kill King, and he would be found responsible ' along with various government agencies ' for the killing in a 1999 civil lawsuit by the King family, which was represented by Pepper.
We find out that Ray's escape from prison in 1967 was orchestrated and that he had been chosen to be set up a full year before the assassination. The warden of Missouri State Penitentiary was paid $25,000 to allow the 'escape' and the money was provided by Clyde Tolson, J. Edgar Hoover's right-hand man. This same connection would later be used to finance the assassination of King.
As Pepper explains, King was not only hated by the establishment as he rose to prominence in the 1960s, he was feared. Not only did he have the ability to move large numbers of people with his message of peace and tolerance, but he had designs on a political career. According to Pepper, King was planning to run for president on a third-party ticket with fellow anti-war activist Dr. Benjamin Spock. He was also causing panic in powerful circles because he intended to bring hundreds of thousands of poor people to an encampment in Washington, D.C. in the spring of 1968 to bring attention to the plight of the poor. King would also have posed an increasing threat to the political establishment because he intended to become much more vocal in his opposition to the Vietnam War.
We all owe William Pepper a great debt for the incredible investigation he did over almost 40 years to reveal the truth about the King assassination. If there is one essential book on this subject, this is it.

Dr. William Pepper has courageously--and nearly singlehandedly--completed the investigation that should have been done by the FBI nearly half a century ago. But, as he has amply demonstrated, since that was the organization behind the set-up for MLK's murder and cover-up, the reason for their failure to conduct that inquiry becomes painfully obvious. While Pepper has only hinted at the connection to the White House, to state that the plot to kill King was put in motion by high-level criminals in the FBI, with help from the local Memphis police, the CIA and the leaders of the Dixie Mafia, along with a cover up that repeated the same patterns as the JFK and RFK assassinations, as well the that of the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967, it is no stretch to complete the circle: That it was all done with either the blessing, the instigation or at least the acquiescence of the POTUS himself: LBJ.
There are many stunning discoveries that Dr. Pepper has uncovered as well, including the assertion that at least three men within MLK's own circle betrayed him, one of whom is still considered one of the "leaders" of the civil rights "movement." But under my "no spoilers" rule, those names will not be repeated here, let it be sufficient to say that they provided all that the FBI officials who were constructing the elaborate plans needed to know as to the "comings and goings" of MLK to complete their deadly mission.
Phillip F. Nelson, author of "LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination" and "LBJ: From Mastermind to The Colossus"
Next time you take comfort in the fact that you don’t live in some third world country where threats to the powers that be are dealt with by death squads, read this book. Why the MLK assassination has not been reinvestigated is mystifying and shameful to a country that claims to be a leader in democracy and free speech. Every American should read this book.
