The John F Kennedy Secret Society Speech, JFK gave on April 27, 1961. It is often offered as a glimpse into the 35th U.S. president's view of the press. Indeed, the president addressed the American Publisher's Association in New York City that day and titled his oration "The President and the Press.
But he did not only urge the assembled publishers to maintain their mission as a balance to political power, as a questioner and informer; the speech was also a warning to the nation. President Eisenhower before him had warned of the "military industrial complex" in his final address only months earlier.
Now President Kennedy, in this address, warned of a threat cloaked in secrecy within the entrails of the United States. Today, many who oppose shrinking freedoms in North America look back to that speech of alarm against the increased encroachment on freedoms as a warning alarm. Certainly the Bush/Cheney Administration appears to have been foreseen almost clairvoy antly by Kennedy in the early sections of his speech.
He warns that, "Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment."
Under the cover of the 9/11 explosions the Bush regime moved a series of measures to remove Constitutional rights to citizens including habeas corpus. Free speech protections were eroded and sweeping powers were concentrated in the executive branch of government. Wars for oil, (detailed at /rockwell/warforoil.html), were launched as the latest in the ongoing march to construct a New World Order. In this order, resources and labor are locked in to the service of a group of global greedsters.
Bush I announced the move with the fall of the Soviet Union. Clinton advanced it with the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). This and other free trade agreements place corporate profit-making as primary, above constitutional laws of signatory states and other protections for working people and the environment with its Chapter 11 section (which is explained here: /trade/nafta/CH__11/)
Bush II took advantage of the 9/11 fears to obliterate obstacles posed by the Constitution. Now the new Obama regime benefits from the vast power he has inherited in order to continue the same policies to promote private pilfering.
With the John F Kennedy Secret Society Speech, JFK warned of ill-intentioned interests hiding in the shadows. Today, they are shaping the fate of the nation. Kennedy was indeed, the last president to stand up to those interests.
Since before the birth of the country the battle had begun for control of the U.S. economy. In 1913 the tide turned, with the creation of the Federal Reserve Banks (FED). This is a private central banking cartel of 12 banks masquerading as a state institution. It sells fiat money to the U.S, paper currency with no real value other than citizen consent to its buying power. In his crusade against secrecy, Kennedy tried to stand up to the stranglehold these bankers keep on the U.S. economy. He acted to eradicate the national debt and its chains on the neck of our children. Wi th Executive Order 11110, JFK began printing his own silver backed currency to restore economic power to the public. Many believe this was the instigation to ignite his murder.
In the John F Kennedy Secret Society Speech, JFK did call on the press to expose this secret plot for control of the country. Today it is clear that the call was in vain. Most media on the globe now belongs to a handful of corporate owners. They are in league with the banksters who are betting their fortunes on keeping you under control.
