Encyclopedia of Domestic Assassinations

Just ere his sinking what does one see
Break on the face of that devotee?
A wakening to the treachery
He had loved with love so blind?
The faith that had shone in that mongrel's eye
That his owner would save him by and by
Turned to much like a curse as he sank to die,
And a loathing of mankind—Thomas Hardy (The Mongrel)


This grim scrapbook:

  1. Celebrates the lives—often heroic and idealistic—of the Invisible Government’s victims.
  2. Shows that our real rulers routinely murder their influential opponents.  You might explain away the premature death of one, or two, or five influential challengers of the Invisible Government, but you cannot explain away the fact that most of them die early.
  3. Rattles readers’ cages with Bob Marley’s question: “How long shall they kill our prophets while we stand aside and look?
  4. Shows that it is utterly futile to struggle directly for such things as sustainability, peace, justice, or freedom.  Always and everywhere, humanity's peaceful champions get killed long before they can accomplish anything.  Before doing anything else, we must overthrow the killers.

What this Encyclopedia Can and Cannot Prove

This compilation cannot prove involvement of the Invisible Government and its agents in any given case.  To prove or disprove the murder of a single individual requires a book-length investigation, and even then doubts remain.

Looking at each case in isolation, one might conclude:  “Having reviewed the evidence, I’d say that there is, say, a 90% chance that the government murdered this particular individual.”  For instance, in the list below, I’d guess that there is only a 5% chance that the government murdered musician Bobby Darin (who had a weak heart even as a child), a 98% chance for Martin Luther King (after listening to 70 witnesses, a jury concluded that the government had a hand in his assassination), and a 99.9% chance for Fred Hampton (who was admittedly murdered by the government).

While this encyclopedia can only provide probability estimates in any given case, it does provethe existence of a pattern:  If you are influential and meaningfully defy the Invisible Government, it kills you.  The evidence here is statistical in nature.  If you take random samples of 100 smokers and 100 nonsmokers, and if you see that the lifespan of smokers is significantly shorter, you can conclude that smoking kills.  In the same way, if you take 100 influential challengers of the Invisible Government and 100 bystanders, and if you see an even greater longevity gap between them, you can conclude that the Invisible Government kills.

In fact, it is hard to locate influential challengers to the Invisible Government who made it to old age.  And, of the few who did, some were reduced to penury, smeared, or spent time in prison.  In the USA, at this moment, I can only think of 7 such possible survivors, in over a century of assassinations.

The upshot of all this is simple:  Whenever an influential challenger of the Invisible Government dies, the prime suspect is the Invisible Government.  Whenever she is fired, incarcerated, or smeared, the probable reason is not the officially-stated one, but the threat she posed to the powers that be.

Scholarly Standards

By the nature of the case, this encyclopedia cannot meet scholarly standards of accuracy.  One cites internet sources, hoping that they had done their job, but one cannot spend weeks on researching individual entries.  Nonetheless, even in the extremely unlikely event that only 50% percent of the information presented in this preliminary draft is accurate (almost certainly over 90% is), that 50% fully accomplishes the four goals of this encyclopedia.

An invitation to Contribute

I have been collecting materials for an Anglosphere assassination encyclopedia (of domestic victims only), hoping to compile it alone.  I now realize I shall never be able to cover even 5% of the material on my own.  So I decided to post some sketchy entries (the first 1%?), and invite others to expand and correct them.  I’d also like to invite others to submit new entries (anonymously or in their own names), following a similar format to the one I have used.  If there is sufficient interest in such a collaborative undertaking, this encyclopedia will be updated on a regular basis.

Please send all corrections or new entries to:  <aa1674@wayne.edu> (subject: Encyclopedia).

Chapter 1.  Parliamentarians

“They do not tell the truth; they are liars!  They manipulate our history books.Michael Jackson

Hale Boggs, 1914-1972 (aged 58).

Relevant positions:  Representative from Louisiana (1947-1973); a House majority whip; House majority leader; one of seven members of the Warren Commission.

Official cause of death:  Airplane accident (his airplane vanished in Alaska and was never found, 3 others vanished as well: the pilot, Representative Nick Regich, and Regich’s aide).

 Jo Cox, 1974-2016 (aged 41).

Relevant position: Member of Parliament, Batley and Spen, UK, 2015-2016.

Alleged cause of death: Shot and stabbed by a lone, crazed, assassin.

Grounds for murder?

“On June 23rd, the UK will vote on whether to stay in the European Union (the “remain” campaign) or leave the EU (‘Brexit’). The polls show a marked shift, with Brexit supporters gaining.  Then a British MP, Jo Cox, who has urged Brits to remain, is murdered. “The man who is arrested, Thomas Mair, is alleged to have shouted ‘Britain First!(Brexit) as he killed Cox. However, now witnesses on the scene are saying they heard no such thing. “Too late.  Social media and news media are running with the ‘Britain First, Brexit killer’ narrative. “Here is the psyop  formula:  “MP Jo Cox wanted to remain in the EU.  Her killer was a ‘Brexit right-wing crazy’ who yelled ‘Britain First!’ as he murdered her. Therefore, all people who want Brexit are right-wing crazies.  Therefore, vote to remain in the EU.”

“The sad death of pro-EU British MP Jo Cox prompted a buying spree in Sterling that carried on through today as hope sprung eternal that her assassination (and the efforts to politicize the actions of a mad man) would lead to either a delayed vote or sympathetic pro-EU ‘Remain’ swing.’”

“The first Brexit poll since the killing of Jo Cox suggested that ‘staying in the bloc won 45 percent support in the . . . telephone poll of 1,001 adults . . .  Leaving was endorsed by 42 percent.  The poll marked a reversal of positions from [a] previous survey which was released just before pro-EU Labour Party lawmaker Cox was murdered.”

“Cox had only been elected in 2015.  As an MP, she was involved with Labour Friends of Palestine and wrote part of a 2015 report by the group, urging a lifting of the Israeli blockade on Gaza.  She said in February that moves by the Conservative government to use legal threats to curtail the boycott of Israel were ‘a gross attack on democratic freedoms.  It is our right to boycott unethical companies.’”

Additional clues implicating the Invisible Government


Bronson Cutting, 1988-1935 (aged 46).

Relevant position:  Senator from New Mexico (1927-1935).

Official cause of death:  Airplane crash (5 of the 8 people aboard were killed).

Grounds for murder?

“The fight against the abolition of the credit power of private banks will be a savage one, for their power as a unit is without equal in the country.  Knowing this is why I think back to the events of March 4, 1933, with a sick heart.  For then, with even the bankers thinking the whole economic system had crashed to ruin, the nationalization of banks by President Roosevelt could have been accomplished without a word of protest.  It was President Roosevelt's great mistake.  Now the bankers will make a mighty struggle.”
