Concluded from Part 3
The third and final conscious musician we’re going to focus on in this series is Bob Marley.
I talked a little bit about Bob in part one, and in my opinion, it’s just as palpable that the cabal would’ve had multiple reasons to silence his influential voice as it is with John Lennon.
Bob Marley used calm and cool yet very intelligently composed reggae music to spread the truth about the plight of the poor and suffering, to spread his spiritual outlook on life and to present his native country of Jamaica to the world.
Listen to nearly any song from Bob and you’ll see that his aim was to call on humanity to rise up against oppression and understand our strength as a united collective.
The basic ideas almost anyone reading this can agree with were taken and given the international spotlight thanks to Bob Marley. He expressed the ideas of peace and sharing abundance to eradicate poverty, and constantly reminded us of the need to stand up for our rights and uproot our oppressors.
Being an international celebrity and a noted revolutionary at the same time saw active interest in Marley on the part of the cabal, as we’ll get into discussing soon. Like Lennon and Hendrix, Marley was able to arise and use his voice for a positive purpose to say the least.
The music Bob Marley gave us in his short life that’s devoted to physical and spiritual liberation has inspired and uplifted generations of awakening people, and I owe much of my own drive to use my voice to Bob and his children. But why, beyond his clear influence and ability to incite the disenfranchised masses into revolution, would the cabal have any reason to silence Marley?
Houseofdread.com asserts that many cabal agencies have been actively interested in Jamaica and in stemming the spread of conscious reggae music to the rest of the world.
“I’ve come to the conclusion that progressive reggae music was kidnapped over a decade ago. A bunch of lightweights and imposters are being held up as reggae superstars and the musical culture that these usurpers are bringing forward is undermining true Rasta culture. Within my hypothesis, the degradation of modern Rasta culture has been orchestrated in large part by the hidden hand of the U.S. national security establishment.
In this chapter we examine how this network operates overseas, principally through the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), but also with the assistance of agencies such as the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the U.S. Information Agency (USIA). These comprise an intelligence network of U.S. government institutions that have a presence throughout the world. These government agencies are major players in this conspiracy.
The scheme includes a number of non-governmental entities as well as corporate and private interests. I charge that, beginning in the 1970s, a Cabal, operating in and around this network, conspired to implement a covert psychological warfare program aimed at thwarting the rapid diffusion of conscious reggae music and its attendant culture. Today’s popular reggae contrasts immensely with that which was created by the Rasta pioneers.” (6)
The referenced article goes into much detail about the use of the entertainment industry to produce low-vibrational dancehall music in the wake of deaths of reggae pioneers to keep the masses distracted, but we’re going to skip all of that and focus on a potential motivation on the part of the cabal to silence Marley.
In doing so, it’s important to remember that an attempt on Marley’s life was made a few years before his 1981 death of melanoma. House of Dread explains:
“In 1976, Jamaica, because of the intensity of political violence, was under martial law. Political warfare was taking place in the streets of the island’s major cities.
The populace was divided along class lines with the masses of the working class, poor and dispossessed supporting Prime Minister Michael Manley’s People’s National Party (PNP) and the elite backing the opposition Edward Seaga’s Jamaican Labor Party (JLP).
Both camps made use of armed street gangs recruited from the ghettos of Kingston and outlying areas. Additionally, offshore influences deepened the conflict; the leftist PNP in solidarity with regional socialists and the JLP backed by the wealthy Western powers.
In an attempt to quell the political violence, the PNP planned a peace concert to be entitled the ‘Smile Jamaica Concert,’ for which Bob Marley penned one of his more renowned compositions. For insight into the role this event likely played in triggering the attempted assassination of Marley in 1976, we (…) refer to (an interview with Timothy White):
‘The concert wasn’t political, it was just intended to cool the country down, and make it stop thinking so intensely about politics and think more about itself and the fact that people in the outside world were coming to like and admire it. Marley got induced to do the concert, but since Manley’s People’s National Party was in power and it was their cultural ministry that prevailed upon Marley to give the concert, it was seen as a political act. And enemies of Bob Marley in the rival Jamaican Labor Party, as well as ghetto associates were involved in their own mischief.
They all pointed to Bob Marley as the cause of their problems. There was a lot of jealousy. As a result, a number of people conspired to assassinate Marley in the days before the concert.’”
(…)”’After Bob was shot and he survived, he went on to perform at the concert, which was December 5, 1976, in Jamaica. He was supposed to be under government protection, but many of those men vanished. He was supposed to take a plane out of Jamaica the following day under police protection.
And those guards vanished. It was a very mysterious thing, the point being that he was left vulnerable again if someone else wanted to try to kill him. It was a very spooky, sinister set of circumstances. Pictures that were taken of Marley and people hanging around his house, where the assassination attempt took place, later vanished under very mysterious circumstances. Any kind of record of who those people might have been just vanished.’” (6)
Here we see that because of supposed political affiliations that weren’t even valid, an attempt on Marley’s life was made in Jamaica in 1976. Note that it’s believed Marley’s shooters were affiliated with the conservative JLP backed by the United States.
I’d imagine that plenty of other interests behind the scenes stood to gain if Marley had perished that night in 1976, but instead, he grew stronger and continued to inspire the public to rise up. He joined in the fight for the independence of various peoples, and seemed to become a direct response to the unchecked nature in which the cabal has been able to rule over a silent majority.
In the final snippets I’ll post, House of Dread goes on to discuss why the cabal could’ve wanted to take Marley’s life, as well as one opportunity they were given in particular.
In reading this, remember that Marley died of very rapidly-progressed melanoma.
“As revealed throughout this chapter, the motivation for removing Bob Marley and Peter Tosh from the international political scene is incontestable. They had become revolutionary cultural icons whose profound influence on young people worldwide had presented a direct challenge to the self-interests of the Western security establishments.”
(…) “In so far as the opportunity to have attacked Bob Marley with a potentially cancer-causing agent, there has been speculation that, during the time Marley was initially being treated for the foot injury which is believed to be the beginning of the cancer in his body, Bob was given some kind of an injection by a French doctor. Later Marley did travel to the Federal Republic of Germany to undergo radical naturopathic cancer treatments by one Bavarian Dr. Issels, who is revealed to have had former Nazi SS and intelligence connections.” (6)
If I let myself post all of the snippets I’d like to from House of Dread’s article on this subject, I’d probably fill up five more pages with them. Alas, I will conclude this section and highly recommend researching the referenced article if you’re interested in this subject, because it certainly provides much food for thought.
The article goes on to discuss the CIA and DEA’s active involvement in Jamaica, and various other subjects.
The consensus expressed in the article seems to be that it’s possible the CIA could’ve played a strong hand in the deaths of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh (who was another reggae pioneer and whom originally played with Marley), and that the wave of genuine and inspirational reggae music they and others pioneered was replaced with vain and materialistic impersonations of genuine roots reggae.
That’s not to say that there isn’t still genuine reggae music in this day, but I have to admit that it’s clear the cabal has used the entertainment industry to keep humanity distracted and focused on vanity and egoism. Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and a whole wave of reggae pioneers helped to break distraction and mind control with beautiful-sounding spiritual music and a universal message of peace we can all get behind.
Marley joins Hendrix, Lennon and so many countless others who were at the forefront of awakening the populace in the 60s and 70s, and his children continue to help awaken humanity and spread the message of Rastafari with their music and humanitarian efforts.
In concluding this series, I’ve been aching to express that despite the subject matter discussed here regarding Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Bob Marley, it’s important to remember their lives more than their deaths.
It’s important to remember the sacred work these individuals performed to awaken the collective and introduce us to a paradigm vastly different from what had been deemed normal. These individuals reminded humanity that we can liberate ourselves and find expanded perceptions of our own spirituality in the process.
They helped us to unlock and remember a crucial part of ourselves, and their work is so much more important than their deaths or who were responsible for them.
Don’t get me wrong – if the cabal is responsible for the deaths of these individuals, than it’s crucial that they be held responsible and the public informed. This is what sparked my desire to research and write about this subject, as opinion has long pointed toward the cabal as being responsible for the deaths of various influential people and I’m ready to know the truth.
It’s time for the public to be informed about everything that’s been hidden from us, because politrix is a stage show designed to distract us from seeing the real decisions that are made behind the curtain. Dare I say this, but even more important than the work of Hendrix, Lennon and Marley is the work you choose to perform in every moment.
What are you contributing to the awakening of the collective today? How do you choose to help elevate the planetary consciousness and introduce the world to the realms of spirit? Do you feel inspired and driven to work with as much of yourself as possible to help everyone become aware?
It’s been said and believed for a long time that our planet and collective is reaching a higher state of consciousness and awareness. What are you doing in this moment to assist this elevation of consciousness?
I can’t claim to know how things work behind the scenes, but I can say that any progression from one point of existence to another must be attained with the active involvement of everyone. The pioneers and leaders of recent and distant decades understood this and aptly got to work on offering themselves to the betterment of humanity.
Are you up for the task these brave souls willingly accepted? Are you ready to throw yourself into a new paradigm built with the active involvement of every person?
Seek personal liberation and spiritual enlightenment, understand the reality of the Golden Rule and use your voice to inspire our collective to uproot the forces of corruption and tyranny that have thrived off of our unawareness. Some have seen beyond the veil and worked to help the rest of us to do the same, and now that an ever-growing number of us are able to, we’re charged with spreading awareness to the general public.
