Lennon mixed cocktails for her and her assistants, mixing gin, vodka, red wine and cocaine as the ”secret ingredient”…Jayne asked her friend to read her the Tarot, for her and Lennon.
Her friend began the cast and suddenly he dropped them horrified, exclaiming, ”Oh my God, this is terrible, I see a tragic end for both of you in all this” (right prediction, as it’s said before Jayne Mansfield died three years later victim of one car accident and Lennon was shot in 1980). By hearing this, Lennon got angry and threw the cards.

Jayne Mansfield died in a car accident in 1967. John Lennon always remembered that fact of the Tarot when she met Jayne Mansfield in 1964 and he was in alarm.
As it’s known, Lennon was obsessed with numbers and, particularly, with number nine.
Lennon said to Chris Hutchins: ”Jayne was born on April 19 and died on June 29.
April is the forth month and June the sixth. If you put them together you have one ten. I was born on October 9, the ninth day of the tenth month.
Jayne Mansfield died two months after her birthday, that means that I’m going to die on one day with a nine, in the month of December.”

Let’s talk about the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party’s time at the 1964 Democratic National Convention. MFDP arrived by bus to Atlantic City a few days prior to the start of the convention. MFDP challenged the right of the Mississippi Democratic Party’s delegation to participate in the convention, claiming that the regulars had been illegally elected in a completely segregated process that violated both party regulations and federal law. The National Party referred the challenge to the Convention Credentials Committee. The MFDP delegates lobbied and argued their case, and large groups of supporters and volunteers established an around-the-clock picket line on the Boardwalk just outside the convention, which garnered considerable publicity. The Credentials Committee televised its proceedings, which allowed the nation to see and hear the testimony of the MFDP delegates. President Johnson called a press conference during the testimony of Fannie Lou Hamer. President Johnson used Hubert Humphrey & Walter Mondale to work on a compromise between the Mississippi delegations. They offered MFDP two at-large seats on the convention floor. the MFDP refused this compromise; however, they commandeered the seats of the regular Mississippi Democratic Party, after they left the convention in frustration. (NOTE: Pictured here are protesters on the boardwalk in Atlantic City) #BHM #FreedomSummer #MFDP
