Catcher In the Rye Conspiracy and The Mysterious And Untimely Death Of JD Salinger
J.D. Salinger, Reclusive Literary Icon, Dies at 91
Jerome David Salinger (pronounced /ˈsælɪndʒər/, SAL-in-jər; January 1, 1919 – January 27, 2010) was an American author, best known for his 1951 novel
The Catcher in the Rye, as well as his reclusive nature. His last original published work was in 1965; he gave his last interview in 1980.
Salinger died of “natural causes“at his home in New Hampshire on January 27, 2010. He was 91. Salinger’s literary representative commented to The New York Times that the writer had broken his hip in May 2009, but that “his health had been excellent until a rather sudden decline after the new year.” The representative believed that Salinger’s death was not a painful one.
Mark David Chapman who murdered John Lennon, and John Hinkley who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan were both found with copies of The Catcher in the Rye.
After killing John Lennon on December 8th, 1980, Chapman dropped the gun and proceeded to take out a copy The Catcher in the Rye, and calmly started reading, while waiting for the police to arrive. When police entered the apartment of John Hinkley, they found a copy of the book on his coffee table.
Catcher In the Rye MORE THAN 60 MILLION COPIES SOLD!
In the wake of its 1950s success, Salinger received (and rejected) numerous offers to adapt The Catcher in the Rye for the screen, including one from Samuel Goldwyn. Since its publication, there has been sustained interest in the novel among filmmakers, with Billy Wilder,
Harvey Weinstein, and Steven Spielberg among those seeking to secure the rights. Salinger stated in the 1970s that “Jerry Lewis tried for years to get his hands on the part of Holden.” Salinger repeatedly refused, though, and in 1999, Joyce Maynard definitively concluded: “The only person who might ever have played Holden Caulfield would have been J. D. Salinger.”
Chapman told police, “If you want to know why I murdered John Lennon, read The Catcher in the Rye.”
Many believe the book could be a trigger object. It has been said that MKULTRA* victims are triggered into service via a trigger object or trigger words. Once they see the words, they set out doing their dirty deeds. MKULTRA is a CIA admitted program, for making assassins out of ordinary people using mind control techniques.
Coincidence? Or is there some kind of message in the book?
* Project MK-ULTRA, or MKULTRA, was the code name for a covert CIA
interrogation research program, run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence. This official U.S. government program began in the early 1950s, continuing at least through the late 1960s, and it used United States and Canadian citizens as its test subjects. The published evidence indicates that Project MK-ULTRA involved the surreptitious use of many types of drugs, as well as other methods, to manipulate individual mental states and to alter brain function.
Of John Lennon?
