Heed Kennedy’s advice and end Federal Reserve

There are three little-known decisions by President John F. Kennedy that make him the paragon of patriotism in modern American history.

First, Kennedy said no to Operation Northwoods, a plan approved by the joint chiefs of staff to initiate false-flag attacks carried out by CIA operatives. The sinister plan called for the shooting of Americans, bombings and hijacking of commercial airliners and blaming these attacks on the Cubans to gain support for an invasion of Cuba.

Secondly, he took the advice of one of America’s greatest war heroes, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, regarding the futility of putting ground troops in Vietnam. Subsequently, Kennedy decided that he would withdraw all ground troops from Vietnam by 1965.

Finally, Kennedy issued Executive Order 11110 to create U.S. notes backed by silver to replace Federal Reserve notes. If enforced, this policy would have guaranteed the ability for the country to pay off its own debts and eliminate the national debt.

Kennedy’s policies would have destroyed the profits and control of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank and saved the lives of 58,000 brave Americans. However, after his assassination, President Lyndon Johnson cowardly caved in to the bankers and military industrial complex. He pulled U.S. notes from circulation and escalated the war.

We must not let Kennedy’s death be in vain. We must honor his bravery by ending the Fed and keeping America out of wars not in our national interest.
