Who Shot JFK?
There’s a story that got around that excited some people for a few years, and still does some. The story is about the fact that John F Kennedy, shortly before his assassination in 1963, signed Executive Order 11110. In various versions we’ve seen, this order returns to the government the responsibility of printing money, shuts down interest payments to the Federal Reserve, issues trillions of dollars of cash through the Treasury. Yes, JFK was a greenbacker! This Executive Order would certainly suggest that JFK was after the Fed and was surely going to repeal the 1913 Federal Reserve Act.
Of course, theories about who killed JFK and why will continue forever, probably. This is another one of the theories, that it was the same money power that killed Abraham Lincoln, tried to kill Andrew Jackson, killed Louis McFadden, Huey Lewis . . .
JFK excited people’s imaginations as to what was possible. He had said:
- the question before the American people - and only you can decide what you want, what you want this country to be, what you want to do with your future. I think we are ready to move.
Among other things, ready to move on the Federal Reserve. But this executive order actually did none of what is claimed, in fact, quite the opposite.
Someone made it up, at a time when people couldn’t routinely look up Executive Order 11110.
Certainly, Kennedy seemed set to do major things that weren’t supposed to be part of the rules. He was going to change a lot of things that somebody wouldn’t want changed. Sometimes, the invisible power has to act. Or maybe it was just some nut with a gun . . .
There’s much controversy about official versions and evidence that has been discredited, where the shot was fired from, etc. It’s easy to find the film of the shooting on the Web. This is the sort of thing that makes people wonder all the more.
All through the years since, opinion polls show that a majority of the American population believe that Kennedy was killed by conspiracy, and find that they have a very wide range of suspects for the killing. According to journalist Abdel Bari Atwan, speaking on the BBC's Dateline London, it is a commonly held belief among the populations of Arab nations that ISIS/ISIL are the result of an American conspiracy. Certainly, the trail of free gifts which appear to have been laid out for them make lots of people scratch their heads about what's going on. It's not hard to imagine the suspects that people have in mind.
Obviously, it's very hard to know what really happens, but, whether rightly or wrongly, it is a significant fact that whole populations believe these kind of things.
