John F Kennedy and Conspiracies

With all the talk about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation and bribes, and pay-for-play, and Benghazi, and emails, and people dying under mysterious circumstances, and, well, pretty much everything to do with the Hillary, one may be reminded about a president who did not last long, who did not like the kinds of games that the Clintons play.
John F. KennedyOn January 27, 1961, a week after he was inaugurated, then President John F. Kennedy gave a talk to the American Newspaper Publishers Association in which he openly talked about a conspiracy that, in all probability, got him assassinated.

He was a person who was not about to be a puppet for anyone.

These are some of his words from the longer, overall talk.

“The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.”

“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence — on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”

The full 19 minutes of the speech are below:

To deny that there are secret societies is simply ignorance, or, worse, living in denial.

That there are unknown people (or forces, if you will) behind the scenes, pulling strings, is quite apparent.  Our country’s most revered words, contained in the US Constitution and its 27 Amendments, are being slowly eroded, where our freedoms and liberties are being taken away, almost without notice.  Almost.

But there are those who do notice.

And there are those who do not want to notice.  It is hard to confront such evil being done in the guise of “national security” or other such words, for they are designed to make us feel better, safer.

Don’t believe it?  Do your own research to determine what rights you have already lost.  And, yes, you really have lost them.

It would have been great to see what Kennedy could have achieved in two terms in office.  Unfortunately, the power-brokers (those who make and break anyone at will) did not wish to see that happen.

November 22, 1963, stands as one of the biggest blemishes on this country’s leadership.

Spying and Laundering Money

As reported by the Associated Press, ten people were charged with “conspiracy to act as an agent of a foreign government without notifying the U.S. attorney general.”

The typical word for this is acting as a spy.

Most people probably understand that many, if not all, governments utilize spies in an attempt to gather various pieces of what they consider valuable information that might allow them to have an upper hand.

As a sidenote, corporate America also participates in industrial espionage, again in an attempt to be on top.

The AP article goes on to say that the maximum sentence, if convicted of said conspiracy, is five years in prison.

A message to two of the accused spies, allegedly from the Russion government, states their marching orders are to collect information in a variety of potentially damaging areas, “including nuclear weapons, U.S. arms control positions, Iran, White House rumors, CIA leadership turnover, the last presidential election, Congress and the political parties.”

The accused people have evidently been acting covertly for years, as some of the evidence presented against them at arraignment goes back to at least the year 2000.

It does seem odd that if proven true that these people were spies and had been doing so for a decade that they would spend less time in prison than they did gathering information.

Further, nine of the ten were also “charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering.”

That sentence carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

Excuse this citizen for asking, but how is it that a spy who, hypothetically, gathered intel such as information on Amercia’s nuclear weapons and arms control positions that could possibly allow a foreign power access to highly classified secrets and potentially cause damage to U.S. national security be less of a threat and carry less of a penalty than laundering money?
