The JFK Secret Societies Speech – Not What You Think!

john-f-kennedyOn April 27th 1961, Kennedy gave a speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York.  Most people believe that President Kennedy was trying to cryptically warn the American people of some vast conspiracy being perpetrated by the Military – Industrial Complex.  Most people are wrong.

First of all, you have to listen to the entire speech — not just the little 2 to 5 minute out-takes being passed around on the internet; you have to listen to his words in their proper context.

ed4f60c1aaPresident Kennedy starts off his speech with the customary banter typical of his administration — lighthearted jabs at both the press and the government.  At about the 5:00 minute mark, Kennedy goes into a brief description of the challenges of dealing with a very aggressive Soviet Union.  He then makes a couple of statements which could possibly have contributed to his assassination, depending upon who you happen to believe was behind it — he did, after all, make a lot of enemies during his term as President.

“The dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify them. 

Even today, there is little value of opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating it’s arbitrary restrictions. 

Even today, there is little value in ensuring 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. 

That, I do not intend to permit, to the extent that it’s in my control.”

kennedy150-020e94d0c69604633c1383043f5c9ed3294a433f-s6-c30In that one statement, it would seem that Mr. Kennedy plainly stated his commitment to the continuation of a free and open society here in the United States, with only the narrowest of secrecy being used on the basis of “national security”.  And this principle would have been anathema to the Military – Industrial Complex.

In any case, President Kennedy goes on to speak to the traditional freedom of the press during peacetime and the obligation of the press to censor themselves during wartime.  President Kennedy points out that America is in a unique period of undeclared war with, and in unstated danger from, “a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy” — quite obviously the President is speaking of the Soviet Union rather than the Military – Industrial Complex that many have cited as the warning contained in this speech.

President Kennedy points out that the Soviets have openly boasted that they obtain better information from the open press than they would traditionally obtain by employing agents and spies because of the unguarded nature of the reporting by the US news media at the time.

Nike_HerculesI grew up during the early 1960’s; I remember reading of the building of missile silos and troop movements in the newspaper.  I lived just a few miles from a major Nike interceptor missile base in the Los Angeles area, and I remember reading in the Los Angeles Times about how this base would protect Los Angeles in the event of a nuclear attack by the Soviet Union’s ICBM’s, for Christ’s sake!  President Kennedy had ample reason for the topic of this speech, because our news media at the time was a virtual sieve of information — all the Russians had to do was read the newspaper!

Those of you who didn’t grow up in the era of “Camelot” have absolutely no idea of the love affair that the American public had with the Kennedy’s.  President Kennedy had a charisma about him that could disarm even the toughest newspaperman — and this speech was simply John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s simple and charismatic way of asking the news media to kindly STFU.

President Eisenhower Had It All Wrong… We Were Already Slaves.

I just finished reading this article, which is an excellent history of the rise of the military-industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us so stridently against.

http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2011/01/the-tyranny-of-defense-inc/8342/

However dire seeming was his warning, I would bet that most people simply don’t know that President Eisenhower was the single most responsible President in this escalation of military and industrial cooperation. Just the single fact that, in 1952, when Ike was elected, that America’s nuclear weapon stockpile numbered some 1,000 warheads; but by the time he passed the reins to John F. Kennedy in 1961, it consisted of more than 24,000 warheads, and it rapidly ascended later that decade to a peak of 31,000. So, as exceptional as these two Presidents were in many areas, it would seem that they were actually the most permissive of this marriage of the military establishment and the industrial sector in their unholy alliance that has decimated this nation.

Perhaps Eisenhower was speaking from a desire for forgiveness when, in his farewell address on January 17, 1961, he so fervently warned America to beware of this very entity.

Most people do not know, though, that President Eisenhower espoused a much different view in his little known presentation to the American Society of Newspaper Editors on April 16, 1953 who’s main theme was hailed by many as a blueprint for the end of the Cold War, but condemned by the Russians as a demand for complete and unconditional surrender.

Largely overlooked by most commentators was a second theme that Eisenhower had woven into his text. The essence of this theme was simplicity itself: spending on arms and armies is inherently undesirable. Even when seemingly necessary, it constitutes a misappropriation of scarce resources. By diverting social capital from productive to destructive purposes, war and the preparation for war deplete, rather than enhance, a nation’s strength. And while assertions of military necessity might camouflage the costs entailed, they can never negate them altogether.

“Every gun that is made,” Eisenhower told his listeners, “every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.” Any nation that pours its treasure into the purchase of armaments is spending more than mere money. “It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.” To emphasize the point, Eisenhower offered specifics:

“The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities … We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. ”

These literary bookends to President Eisenhower’s two terms show us that this was a president who went into this august office without the belief in a permanent joining of the military with the industrial sector, but left office as a victim of that very complex. This tells me that this “military industrial complex” existed when he entered office and expanded greatly quite out of his ability to control it.

In support of this theory, I present Smedley Butler, a US Marine who later became an anti-war advocate, and talks a bit about the military-industrial complex.

“I’ve spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class thug for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents. ”

Based upon this quotation, which has been verified many times, it would be apparent that the military industrial complex has existed in America for a much longer period of time than President Eisenhower or many others believed.

Of course, that begs the question, “When did this unholy alliance begin?”; I theorize that it actually began at the start of the Civil War, at the hands of one President Abraham Lincoln.

There has been a quotation attributed to Abraham Lincoln; many say that he did not write it, and apparently this 1864 letter cannot be found — or has simply been destroyed? Possibly, but it reads like something a repentant Abraham Lincoln would write, so I believe that there is a preponderance of evidence that he did write this letter.

On Nov. 21, 1864 President Abraham Lincoln is said to have written a letter to Colonel William F. Elkins. He said,
———————–
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

Friends, would any of you be shocked if, at this point, I made the statement that our nation — and by extension, our Liberty — had been stolen from our forefathers by a group of corporations? Chief among them would be the DuPont Corporation, but there are and were many others.

As a result of President Eisenhower’s farewell speech, most people assume that the start of World War II ushered in the beginning of the military industrial complex.

Actually, it was Abraham Lincoln who first began the integration of the full-time military with the civilian arms manufacturing industry. President Eisenhower misspoke when he stated that until the latest of our world conflicts, the U.S. had no arms industry; the arms industry was a thriving business in America.

President Abraham Lincoln brought in scientists from all over the world to develop military technology. Thus, the American Civil War became known as the first modern war.

Probably the best known technological advancement of the Civil War was the USS Monitor. While it was not the first ironclad ship, it was the first to have a revolving turret. Other Union advances included the Gatling gun and improvements to rail and medical technology.

The South, due to it’s more agricultural economy, had little hope of matching the success of the North in developing military technology, but there were some notable exceptions. The CSS Hunley is considered the first modern submarine.

Additionally, the south produced the finest-quality gunpowder in the world at that time. A huge gunpowder manufacturing facility was constructed; it was ultra-modern for the time. To reduce the possibility of explosions, workers were dressed in white suits with rubber boots to eliminate static electricity discharges. Powder storage buildings were designed to contain and deflect explosions should they occur.

After the war, the DuPont Chemical Company demanded the North destroy the southern plant and buy their inferior-quality gunpowder instead.

The South also developed torpedoes and land mines. Other Union advances included electric fuses and hand grenades. Union scientists improved on the telegraph and aerial recon via balloon was developed too.

So, it was, in fact Lincoln who first began the Military/Industrial Complex which has been the largest purveyor of death and destruction for over a century.

And it is that same military industrial complex which has stolen our birthright in order to ensure itself a steady profit and guarantee it’s continued existence..

Planning For When TSHTF — And Afterwards!

OK, Patriots — this is on a serious note.

I have gotten solid intel that says the DHS/ FEMA boys have been buying/ leasing/ renting non-descript storage warehouses for pre-locating arms, ammo, supplies, etc in the suburban industrial areas of all of the major cities in preparation for their gun confiscation push when the time comes.

To all of the Militias:

x-small-warehouse-outside

Your mission — whether you want to accept it or not, really — is to run your own local intel ops to determine exactly where these storage warehouses are located, what their security consists of, and the contents if possible.  When TSHTF, we are all going to need supplies, ammo, and replacement/ additional arms —why not have the intel so that we can simply take it from the “enemy” when the time comes if we need it.

concertina-wire-250x250

Look for the obvious indicators — high-tech CCTV systems, razor/ concertina wire barricades (not just regular barbed wire, although it’s a possibility), physical presence of “contractors” and/ or governmental security forces on roofs, that kind of stuff.  They will probably try to keep security low-key, but you can only hide so much — and the vets in your outfits will know what to look for.  Be real suspicious of the warehouse that has “Available” signs all over it, but has trucks coming and going all day and/ or night — if it is an empty warehouse, what are the trucks taking in?swordfish-hacking

If you have a good computer guy who is good at ferreting out property records & such, try to find any warehouse-type real estate that is owned by any federal government agency in a suburban or industrial area — they may try to hide ownership by deeding it under local municipal ownership.

Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box — after all, these people have been thinking outside of the box for many years now, ever since this “coup” against the American people was conceived.  They are good at it — we need to be better, people!

While you’re at it, you will also want to keep your eyes open for empty secure-type facilities that can be used for holding or interment facilities for captured patriots — these men and women can and will be an excellent source of additional/ reinforcement troops for your outfit.  I guarantee you that, once people are locked up for something that they THOUGHT they had a right to, they will be more than willing to fight alongside the patriots who free them.

NOPoliceLookingForSurvivors

Most of all, though, don’t become a casualty or prisoner yourself.  If you have a “Federal Firearms License”, or have served in any of the recent conflicts (Desert Storm 1 or 2, Iraqi Freedom, etc), or have ended up on some “No Fly” list because of your political views (like I have), you will no doubt be first on the list.  Oh, I know… “from my cold, dead hands”… but be realistic about this.  When they come for those of us on the “A” list, they will come in on us fast & hard, and many won’t even be able to get to those guns.  But the word will spread like wildfire when that happens — as long as you guys & gals have set up your call lists properly.

bug-out

If you get solid, verified intel that TSHTF, don’t wait — not even 5 minutes, because you’re most likely next.  Grab your BOB & weapons, and get the hell out of there.

militia_answer_1_xlarge

Look at it this way — if THEY believe you to be so dangerous that you make the “A” list, imagine how valuable you will be to the resistance as a free man or woman?

Stay safe, Patriots, and do your homework — this homework will mean the difference between a life of slavery, and a re-birth of our Constitution.
