The lifetime of John F. Kennedy has been overrated right into a unbelievable fantasy of tragedy and hope, of glamor and elegance. On the inverse facet of that fantasy is inscribed in blackscratches the conspiracies of that deadly day in Dallas, conspiracies of the Mafia, the USSR, of Castro and the CIA.
The which means of that assassination 58 years in the past at this time is restricted to an immaculately sealed cycle between hope and tragedy that doesn’t permit us to step again and ponder its true significance. Now, nonetheless, as our system comes utterly undone, we’ve got no selection however to look beneath the floor, to have a look at the reality.
“Tragedy and Hope” has a hidden which means right here—it’s the title of a ebook by Carroll Quigley describing how the bankers in London and New York conspired to bind america and the British Empire collectively and to exclude anybody who tried to revive the anti-imperialist parts of the American custom.
We witness america on the 58th anniversary of the homicide of John F. Kennedy nearing a full eclipse by the evil that was unleashed in Dallas on that day.
Please, please do step again and have a look at what transpired in historic context; see how that occasion brought on most cancers that was rising already within the physique politic to metastasize and to unfold.
The hope of America was not Kennedy’s. He inherited it by chance. By some mysterious course of, america produced, out of all its sins within the nineteenth century, the highly effective anti-slavery motion, the push for public training and ladies’s rights, after which, even within the face of the fascistic KKK that terrorized the nation, america produced a technology of courageous youth within the Nineteen Thirties who fought in opposition to fascism, a few of whom went to Spain to struggle and who supported the Soviet Union in its battle in opposition to the extermination insurance policies of the Nazis.
Within the later a part of his presidency, John F. Kennedy took on that mantle, in the identical sense that Lincoln took on the mantle of the anti-slavery motion after 1864.
John F. Kennedy was a product of privilege and indulgence, a person whose father was a gangster-like businessman, a person who gained the presidency by embracing harmful Chilly Battle rhetoric of confrontation with the Soviet Union and spinning it in order that it sounded extra progressive, extra inspiring.
John F. Kennedy was King Oedipus.
After I say that President Kennedy was King Oedipus, I imply that he was pressured, in opposition to his personal will, to awaken to truths that these round him wished to cover from him and that he determined, tragically, that he would attempt to know the reality and attempt to proper what was so unsuitable. He wouldn’t survive.
King Oedipus knew one thing was unsuitable within the realm and he demanded that he be instructed the reality. Everybody round King Oedipus tried to discourage him, however he insisted all of the extra. Ultimately, he pressured them to present him the clues he wished, and he discovered that the plagues in his nation have been due to his sins, sins of which he had been unaware: his killing of his father and his marriage along with his mom.
President Kennedy, equally, more and more turned conscious of the deep corruption in america, particularly the expansion of the military-industrial complicated that president Eisenhower had warned of in his final speech. Kennedy might see the hazard on the horizon if america adopted the lethal path being laid out by bankers and industrial kings.
The subterranean battles surrounding the “Cuban Missile Disaster” are described by the media in a fashion that glosses over the character of that occasion. It was not a confrontation with Russia; it was a battle inside Washington between those that wished to make america into a worldwide empire, modeled on the British Empire, and people who adhered to a conservative imaginative and prescient of the Republic, with restricted tasks outdoors of its borders, and people who have been internationalists, following the internationalist name to oppose fascism—there have been nonetheless a few of these folks left in Washington D.C. even after the purges of the Nineteen Fifties.
Confrontation with the Soviet Union over Cuba was meant to be the beginning of a world battle. The monetary imperialists would cease at nothing to appreciate that aim. They have been led by Allen Dulles, a creature of maximum privilege from a household that had cultivated political connections for many years.
Allen Dulles was intimately related with world finance in New York and London, and he noticed the British Empire as a mannequin for america. Dulles dropped at Washington after the battle the masterminds of imperialism from London, and never a number of masterminds of fascism from Berlin as properly, as he got down to rework america.
He was the conduit for that transformation; the sperm that fertilized the latent egg of globalism. We should keep in mind that imperialism is a contagious illness.
Allen Dulles labored collectively along with his brother John Foster Dulles, President Eisenhower’s Secretary of State, to advertise anti-Communism, globalism, and militarism by their white-shoe regulation agency Sullivan and Cromwell. They weren’t taken with a clear course of, however relatively they ran a brothel whereby they dressed up the darkish needs of multinational firms in fairly wigs and cute clothes.
The criminality of the Dulles brothers is finest represented by their transformation of the CIA from a company for the gathering of data, based mostly on the OSS, into an energetic agent of worldwide conquest modeled on the ruthless British East India Firm. Just like the British East India Firm, the CIA turned a company that made use of the authority of presidency to advertise the pursuits of personal capital—typically to the detriment of residents.
Particularly, Dulles’ reform of the CIA, his cleansing out of leftists from the anti-fascist motion, and his clear alignment with Nice Britain, and push for an entire break with Soviet Union, was a troublesome operation that required him to destroy many careers.
Kennedy might see the hazard of letting the Dulles boys, and their buddies the Bushes, dominate American coverage and create an unaccountable establishment just like the CIA.
The Dulles brothers exploited a basic failure within the American financial system of their push for an unholy marriage of worldwide finance and the military-industrial complicated that may end in dependancy to battle and to grease.
The New Deal of Franklin Roosevelt solely partially addressed the roots of the nice melancholy and in 1937 huge unemployment began once more. Authorities spending for public works had however a brief impact. The disaster of 1937 created a revolutionary temper, with the socialists and communists on the one facet and the fascists just like the KKK on the opposite.
Roosevelt lacked the political will, and the imaginative and prescient, to resolve this downside. More and more it was the Communist Celebration USA, not the Democrats, who took the lead.
The disaster was solved by the Second World Battle.
That’s to say, that the financial flaws of overproduction, hypothesis, and rule by funding banks weren’t solved, however merely swept underneath the rug. The battle created the mandatory jobs and stabilized the financial system for the second. However the return to a peacetime financial system in 1945 introduced again the financial disaster.
The Dulles boys had a prepared answer. Prop up the war-time financial system that had enriched their purchasers by an ideological battle with the Soviet Union. That battle would kill the anti-fascist coalition of the Nineteen Thirties and push Washington and London nearer collectively.
This Chilly Battle scheme was aimed toward inheriting the British Empire’s mantle, changing into Lord of the Ring, and thereby securing management of petroleum, forex, ideology and navy energy. It was a scheme that undermined all points of the Bretton Woods system that might have led to true worldwide cooperation.
Kennedy battled inside the Division of Protection to uphold a safety system that was accountable to the structure. He fought in opposition to the Dulles brothers to maintain america from following the British path.
The failed invasion of Cuba, the “Bay of Pigs” operation, came about on April 20, 1961. Precisely one week later, President Kennedy addressed the Newspaper Publishers Affiliation and denounced the secrecy that the Dulles brothers have been selling.
Kennedy didn’t identify names in his speech, however for the members of the press there could possibly be little question as to what he meant when he stated,
“The very phrase ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we’re as a folks inherently and traditionally against secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We determined way back that the hazards of extreme and unwarranted concealment of pertinent information far outweighed the hazards that are cited to justify it.
Even at this time, there’s little worth in opposing the specter of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even at this time, there’s little worth in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions don’t survive with it. And there’s a very grave hazard that an introduced want for elevated safety will likely be seized upon by these anxious to increase its which means to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.”
No politician in Washington D.C. at this time is able to giving such a speech, most actually to not journalists.
The small print of that afternoon in Dallas 58 years in the past usually are not essential.
The assassination was carried out in such a blunt and apparent method as to clarify to all authorities officers, and all future presidents, that world finance in New York and London might kill a president in broad daylight and stroll away unscathed.
Mission completed! That message was not misplaced on anybody.
America was crippled thereafter, and political leaders with ethical braveness went extinct just like the saber-toothed tiger.
The speedy final result was the Vietnam Battle, a cynical effort to create industrial demand, and to generate income for American firms. Maybe that battle was not as worthwhile because the battle with Russia may need been, however it might suffice.
I had solely the vaguest thought of who President Kennedy was as a toddler. However even on the age of eight, I spent hours interested by what had occurred to him, and why. It was all an amazing thriller for me.
I used to be born on October 16, 1964, 11 months after his demise. I have no idea why, however that made me really feel there was some tie, some connection, between us.
I didn’t know then that I’d go to Yale and Harvard, or that I’d additionally attempt to use my connections in an effort to alter the course of the nation from inside—after which later determine to tackle the whole system.
I didn’t develop up with the cash of a Kennedy, fortunately, and my father was not a significant political participant. But I used to be additionally a toddler of privilege, maybe extra privileged than Kennedy in that I used to be in a position to preserve a better distance from the machine.
The Dulles boys are lengthy gone, however the spin that they gave to American political tradition is now reaching a crescendo. The gestation interval for the monster of imperial decay was 38 years. The prodigy slouched in the direction of the beltway to be born on September 11, 2001. Hunter S. Thompson described the second pretty,
“Growth! Growth! Identical to that. The towers are gone now, lowered to bloody rubble, together with all hopes for Peace in Our Time, in america or some other nation.
Make no mistake about it: We’re at battle now ― with any individual ― and we’ll keep at battle with that mysterious Enemy for the remainder of our lives.”
Just like the assassination of President Kennedy, the autumn of the towers, essentially the most ominous tarot card, was performed after which handed over, and someway we averted the worst with out confronting spreading most cancers.
Thus handed one other twenty years. Within the age of computer systems and smartphones, we’ve got misplaced all sense of historical past and the decay beneath our toes was invisible to us, the thoughts blind. We expect that timber are nonetheless, however that’s as a result of timber transfer so slowly that we can’t understand their motions.
And right here we’re, going through the ultimate type of the sickness that started in Dallas, the COVID19 takeover of the American financial system and the whole political system.
The scheming of Invoice Gates at Microsoft and Larry Fink at BlackRock goes additional than something the Dulles boys imagined attainable. It goes additional as a result of there’s no one left to fend them off. Working in authorities had ceased to be an interesting profession; working in lecturers is nearly writing obtuse articles for obscure journals.
And now they’ve launched a battle in opposition to humanity itself; they’re making a unity of intelligence, authorities and finance, medication and vitality, media and training, that goes far past the proposals that Dulles supplied within the Dulles-Jackson-Correa Report on the CIA. COVID19 is mixing into preparations for battle with China, dovetailing with plans to make use of local weather change as an excuse to grab management of cash and data.
This time, the illness is planetary. America threatens to take every thing down with it.
The danger of conflicts at house and overseas is actual. All dread them and all search to keep away from them. And but, we will see that one facet would make battle relatively than let the republic stay unbiased of the tentacles of worldwide capital, and the opposite facet would settle for battle relatively than permit america to be torn aside, to be left a crippled and mutilated empire.
We should face first the reality, acknowledge the historic course of during which the Kennedy assassination was the inflection level. We should pay attention to our historical past, and we should take actions aimed not at satisfying our egos or pleasing these round us, and most actually not at interesting to firms who fundus.
We should begin a constructive cycle in one other course and create with our personal fingers a substitute for the horrific future path that has been deliberate for us. John F. Kennedy, sitting at his desk within the Oval Workplace so a few years in the past, bought a glimpse of the upcoming crash that we witness at this time.
