Vietnam War & John Lennon
The Vietnam War was a Cold War-era military conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. This war followed the First Indochina War and was fought between North Vietnam, supported by its communist allies, and the government of South Vietnam, supported by the United States and other anti-communist countries. John Winston Lennon (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980) was an English musician and singer-songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles, one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. /5

As the world community increasingly understands that “Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives,” as legendary human rights defender, singer/songwriter John Lennon once said, one can still see many people who find ‘Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed,’ as he also asserted. The life of John Lennon clearly showed signs Targeted Indivudals experience, from his being one of the most compassionate persons working for the betterment of humanity, to being secretly targeted, gangstalked and assassinated. Lennon’s works toward a more just world were reflected in his rebellious nature against the violent status quo, as demonstrated through his political and peace activism. He moved to Manhattan in 1971, where his criticism of the Vietnam War resulted in Richard Nixon’s lengthy attempt to deport him as the anti-war movements were adopting some of his songs as their anthems. Lennon’s charisma and influence were sweeping the globe. [Watch video of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in the TV interview ...

Today in History: October 7, 1975, a New York State Supreme Court judge reverses a deportation order for John Lennon, allowing him to remain legally in his adoptive home of New York City. Protests against the Vietnam War had escalated significantly following the announcement of the Cambodia invasion on April 30, 1970, and the shooting deaths of four student protestors at Kent State just four days later. Many such gatherings would feature peaceful demonstrators singing Lennon's 1969 anthem "Give Peace A Chance," but others were more threatening. Newly relocated to New York City, John Lennon began to associate publicly with such radical figures as Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin and Bobby Seale, and the White House reportedly grew concerned, according to the 2006 documentary The U.S. vs. John Lennon, over his potentially powerful influence with a generation of 18-to-20-year-olds who would be allowed, for the very first time, to vote in the 1972 presidential election. "I suppose if you were going to list your ene ...

Adele has won nearly every major music award out there -- not to mention an Oscar and a Golden Globe -- but now, she's receiving an honor that's truly representative of what she's meant to her home country of Great Britain. Queen Elizabeth II has named Adele an MBE -- Member of the Order of the British Empire -- as part of Her Majesty's annual Birthday Honors List. This award is given for "a significant achievement or outstanding service to the community." Given that Adele has pretty much single-handedly boosted the British record industry thanks to her monster-selling album 21, the award makes sense. Adele's certainly in good company. The Beatles also were named MBEs, although John Lennon famously returned his medal in 1969, complaining of, among other things, Britain's support of the U.S. in the Vietnam War. Many other musicians have received similar honors from the Queen, but of a slightly higher ranking than an MBE; there are several other levels, including OBE and CBE. Honorees include Rod Stewart .. ...
Did Elvis Presley hate John Lennon? I Found this interesting little bit on subject from an article about Tom Jones in the Daily Mail, written by Chris Hutchins, 7 January 2011: It was not the only time that Tom had seen Elvis angry. Whenever John Lennon’s name came up, he would fly into a rage. His dislike of the pacifist Beatle was born from the night I took the Fab Four to his house for their first — and last — meeting. John had annoyed Presley by making his anti-war feelings known the moment he stepped into the massive lounge and spotted the table lamps — model wagons engraved with the message: ‘All the way with LBJ.’ Lennon hated President Lyndon B Johnson for raising the stakes in the Vietnam War. Presley allied himself with the FBI director Edgar Hoover and encouraged him to have Lennon thrown out of the U.S. ‘He should’ve been kicked out long ago,’ Elvis told Tom that night. ‘I had a run-in with him myself,’ Tom said. He made some smart remark at a TV studios in England, w ...
Last but not least Happy Birthday to "THE GREATEST" Muhammad Ali who turns 71 today. Muhammad Ali was born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. on January 17, 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky. Muhammad Ali was the greatest boxer of his generation, and with the exception of Sugar Ray Robinson pound for pound the greatest fighter ever. In my opinion Muhammad Ali is the second greatest athlete of the 20th century right behind Babe Ruth. After winning a gold medal in the 1960 OLympics, Ali at the time was the youngest heavyweight champion at 22 when he knocked out Sonny Liston. ALi was stripped of his title for his refusal to enter the Vietnam War, and he along with Jane Fonda and John Lennon became the voice of the anti-war movement in the 1960's. Ali came back to reclaim his title back two more times. Muhammad Ali was the first of his kind, there will never ever be another athlete like Muhammad Ali. Muhammad Ali transcended his sport like no other athlete. Ali inspired and influenced many people from Whitney Houston to B ...
John Lennon wasn't a US Citizen when he has shot dead, he was not entitled legally own a gun due to the fact he was just a permanent resident, he was only matter of a few months before he could claim full US Citizenship... in the Bill of Rights it says you have to be a US Citizen for the Right to Bear Arms in which John Lennon wasn't a Citizen so how could he defend himself???. :-(
From Ellen Gabriel: December seems to be a busy month for activism: from the December 6th Remembrance of the young women who were killed in 1989 at Ecole Polytechnique, December 10th Human Rights Day, December 8th the 32nd Anniversary of the murder of icon John Lennon to now; " Idle No More" December 21st. when I was younger, I grew up hearing about human rights through news items about Martin Luther King, Malcolm X to the protests against the Vietnam War and the shooting of students at Ohio State U. Remember the saying "Never trust anyone over 30" now a days the age of a youth is as old as 35 years. Today, we have come full circle as the ignorance of world leaders and the ignorance of society continues to find individuals who are marginalized in society because of their race, sexuality, income, religion and gender. The War machine perpetuated by governments fueled by oil and gas corporations, keep us further and further away from achieving what most Miss America's and Miss Universe's spout each pageant - ...

Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. (Nov 4, 1916 – July 17, 2009) American broadcast journalist, best known as anchorman for the CBS Evening News for 19 years (1962–81). During the heyday of CBS News in the 1960s and 1970s, he was often cited as "the most trusted man in America" after being so named in an opinion poll. He reported many events from 1937 to 1981, including bombings in World War II; the Nuremberg trials; combat in the Vietnam War; Watergate; the Iran Hostage Crisis; and the murders of President John F. Kennedy, civil rights pioneer Martin Luther King, Jr., and Beatles musician John Lennon. He was also known for his extensive coverage of the U.S. space program, from Project Mercury to the Moon landings to the Space Shuttle. He was the only non-NASA recipient of a Moon-rock award. Cronkite is well known for his departing catchphrase "And that's the way it is," followed by the date on which the appearance aired.
