The Last Good President
When Kennedy called for a return of America’s currency to the gold standard, and the dismantling of the Federal Reserve System — he actually minted non-debt money that does not bear the mark of the Federal Reserve; when he dared to actually exercise the leadership authority granted to him by the U.S. Constitution, Kennedy prepared his own death warrant. It was time for him to go. — Colonel James Gritz, Called to Serve: Profiles in Conspiracy from John F. Kennedy to George Bush, Lazarus Publishing
The President signed executive order 11110 on June 4, 1963 giving the government the power back to issue currency without going to the powerful and illegal Federal Reserve. His order gave the Treasury power "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury."
sThis meant for every ounce of silver in the Treasury vault, new money could be brought into circulation. This bill had and meant enormous ramifications for the Federal Reserve, as with the stroke of his pen it would put the Federal Reserve of New York out of business. If for one minute you think that would not create him powerful enemies you are mistaken.
This President wanted us debt free as a nation. The Constitution itself gives Congress the authority to coin their own money. But because they have not and he was killed we continue to pay billions of dollars in interest on debt created from money that is made from plain old paper and backed by nothing.
And folks this executive order is still valid and so tell me why no President has not made use of it? Curious in my humble opinion!
Report of McNamara-Taylor Mission to South Vietnam.
With this report in hand, President Kennedy had what he wanted. It contained the essence of decisions he had to make. He had to get re-elected to finish programs set in motion during his first term; he had to get Americans out of Vietnam. — Col. L. Fletcher Prouty, JFK: The CIA, Vietnam, and The Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy, Carol Publishing Group, p. 264.
Fletcher Prouty tells us that,
"On Nov. 22, 1963, the government of the United States was taken over by the superpower group that wanted an escalation of the warfare in Indochina, and a continuing military buildup for generations to come". — Ibid. p. 264.
"Kennedy’s attempt to withdraw from Vietnam was first stopped, and then reversed in three months. With NSAM 288, in March 1964, President Johnson signed off on battle plans for a huge air war against North Vietnam. In other words, what Kennedy refused to do for three years, LBJ did in three months. Less than 18 months after Kennedy’s death, Johnson inserted combat troops into Vietnam, something Kennedy had never contemplated and specifically rejected eight specific times. This would result in the deaths of over 2 million Vietnamese and 58,000 Americans". By Jim DiEugenio
But these powers that were now in control did not want us out of Vietnam. Thus wheels were set in motion to plot his murder at the same time he was planning to deescalate this dastardly war.
They would do all this to generate public support for this war with Cuba. You always need a reason you know for a war and if there is none, create it.
So real or simulated incidents would have targeted the military and civilians alike.
"Operation Northwoods proposals included hijackings and bombings followed by the introduction of phony evidence that would implicate the Cuban government.
It stated: "The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere"
Other sources will say pretty much the same thing. As to the Joint Chiefs of Staff; they approved of this, but the President had other thoughts and thus he created even more enemies. On all sides this man was being closed in on by the people who hated him.
Also according to former Nixon staffer Rodger Stone, "Robert Kennedy was within days of destroying LBJ with a two-track program. One was a RFK-fed LIFE magazine expose into LBJ’s epic corruption and ties to his protégé’s Bobby Baker’s scandals. The other was a Senate Rules Committee investigation, also fed by Robert Kennedy, into LBJ’s corruption and kickbacks,” Stone said. “Desperate” does not even begin to describe LBJ’s situation. LBJ was on the verge of not just national humiliation and being dropped from the 1964 Demo ticket, he was looking at the slammer.”
The above link is full of information. And while I believe that Johnson was part of this and had knowledge of what would happen, he was not the only one. Many many others were involved and or knew what was going to take place and why.
Members of the mob were angry at the President and his brother claiming they had broken their balls to get him elected and now he was allowing his brother to hound them to death. "After the assassination, Hoffa told Ragano that he was delighted. "Did you hear the good news? They killed the son-of-a- bitch bastard." It was later they acknowledged they should have gotten rid of Robert and not John.
REST IN PEACE Mr. President.....you were the last good man to hold office. And if this angers both Republicans and Democrats then that is just too bad. Was he perfect, hell no! But at least he did love this country enough to die for it. When he said "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country" he meant it. He did not just talk the talk, he walked the walk!
