In short, there’s simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than here
In Camelot. – From the song and play of the same name.
It is a moment suspended in time. Although I was only ten years old, I can remember the moment exactly. I had one foot on the ground and the other was on the first step of the school bus I was boarding when the words President Kennedy has been shot seemed to come from everywhere! I have never been, and I can’t imagine ever being as stunned by anything ever again. 9/11, as tragic as it was, did not come close! Only a fellow Boomer could ever understand!
There was something almost supernatural about JFK…an aura that rippled out from his very being that resonated with young and old, male and female…whether you were a Democrat or a Republican! People cried in the streets from New York to LA, and Dublin to Cork, grieving the death of the first Irish-Catholic President. Hell, the whole world cried!
He possessed a can do optimism that was so infectious it rallied and united friend and foe to the common cause: Ask not what your country can do for you…He was born to lead!And we believed! We believed in ourselves…we believed in each other. There may have never been a better time to be an American. While we certainly suffered growing pains, extremely difficult domestic issues and a very unpopular war…nobody seemed to question the leadership of the man who brought us Profiles in Courage!
We were truly Camelot! From the Guinevere-like grace of Jackie to the Lancelot quality of fearlessness in Robert Kennedy who fought the evils of a powerful corruption syndicated through organized crime and big labor; America was as strong and as right and true to her founding vision as she may have ever been! What the American Family nurtured, the American School educated…as the American Factory produced our way to a level of prosperity unparalleled in this world! And through NASA (which Obama has since re-tasked for Muslim outreach), American prosperity propelled the very first man out of this world! We were very happily-ever-aftering one minute…
On November 22nd 1963, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Texas. The assassin’s bullet stole far more than a single life from us…it robbed us of our dreams, and many would say…our innocence. The Warren Commission > Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone > Case closed! Over the many years since, the fading chorus of conspiracy theories surrounding grassy knolls and magic bullets has all but fallen silent behind the heavy stone of time. Until now…
On June 4th 1963, President Kennedy signed Executive Order 11110. Five months later he was dead!
With the stroke of a pen, Mr. Kennedy was on his way to putting the Federal Reserve Bank of New York out of business. If enough of these silver certificates were to come into circulation they would have eliminated the demand for Federal Reserve notes. This is because the silver certificates are backed by silver and the Federal Reserve notes are not backed by anything. Executive Order 11110 could have prevented the national debt from reaching its current level, because it would have given the government the ability to repay its debt without going to the Federal Reserve and being charged interest in order to create the new money. Executive Order 11110 gave the U.S. the ability to create its own money backed by silver. (1)
Of the four American Presidents (Jackson, Garfield, Lincoln and Kennedy) who openly threatened the House of Rothschild and the Central Bank; all were assassinated except Jackson who survived his assassination attempt! John Wilkes Booth was a Rothschild agent!
Check out this nifty debt chart from 1962 (and the last President to defy the Fed!) when our national debt was $254 Billion to 2009 when we passed the $7,544 Billion mark! I would have added the years after that but they don’t make computer screens wide enough…yet! http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-debt-of-the-united-states.htm
Today we’re at $16 Trillion and digging…deeper and deeper and deeper! Why is it that history always affords us a 20/20 rear view mirror…followed by amnesia?
This explains EVERYTHING in a very entertaining and delightful way…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGk5ioEXlIM&feature=player_embedded
OK, so I couldn’t dump this all on you and leave you without a joke…
Did you hear the one about the man from the Weimar Republic in 1923 who took a wheelbarrow full of cash to the bakery to buy a loaf of bread? While he was inside, thieves dumped the cash out and stole the man’s wheelbarrow! True story!
