November 18 - 24, 1963: Assassination of John F. Kennedy

November 2012

Assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

November 22 marks the 49th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. This is a murder which has, to this day, shaped the decline of our nation. Combined with the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, the post-Kennedy escalation into the Vietnam War, and the subsequent assassinations of Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King, and Robert Kennedy, the JFK assassination delivered a shock, from which our republic has not yet recovered, primarily because the full truth has never been told.

This column is not the place to try to tell that full truth, which has, in fact, never been uncovered. What can be said, with confidence, is that the assassination involved a conspiracy coming from the very highest levels of British intelligence, as well as sections of U.S. intelligence, the mafia, and perhaps other foreign intelligence services; that the inquiry into the murder was a total, almost laughable, coverup; and that, as a result of the elimination of JFK, the policy posture of the United States shifted sharply, particularly in foreign policy, putting us on the road to Synarchist domination under which we live today.

Let's touch briefly on each of these points:

Prince Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh.

1) As Executive Intelligence Review has most thoroughly documented in other locations, including the world-famous book Dope, Inc., and a widely circulated New Federalist pamphlet from 1994, entitled "Why the British Kill American Presidents," the agencies involved in ordering, and deploying, the assassination of John Kennedy reached up into an international network, that was also documented to be involved in the attempted assassination of French President Charles de Gaulle, and the murder of Italian energy industrialist Enrico Mattei. This network can be identified with two named organizations: the Permanent Industrial Expositions (Permindex), and a shadowy organization called the "1001 Club," which was founded by Prince Philip Mountbatten, the Duke of Edinburgh, and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. While the 1001 Club was not officially founded until 1971, those who surfaced as members, were notably involved in the circles which carried out the assassination. The key intersection point of both of these networks was Maj. Louis Mortimer Bloomfield, a Canadian, who worked closely with the FBI and the World Wildlife Fund-1001 Club group.

2) The official Warren Commission investigation of the JFK assassination is, even today, an international laughing stock, for its conclusion that President Kennedy was the victim of a "lone assassin," Lee Harvey Oswald. From the contorted attempts to show that one "magic bullet" succeeded in tearing through numerous places in the President's body, to the trashing of the competent investigation of a conspiracy including Oswald, by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, the official story is a blatant cover story.

3) As in the case of any great crime, the crucial evidence lies in the evidence of the intention to create a certain result. In the case of the Kennedy assassination, the shifts in policy are telltale evidence of the authorship of the deed. Most straightforward was the shift on policy in Vietnam, from President Kennedy's stated intention to begin withdrawing troops from Indo-China, per the advice of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, to the rapid moves for increased troop deployment, toward the disastrous colonial war that it became. This decision, in turn, had broad implications for the relationship between the United States and Russia, as well as other sections of the world.

The well-designed U.S. science-driver program of President John F. Kennedy ended with his death, and the brilliant space-program he initiated was cut back sharply, even before the manned Moon landing was launched. Kennedy is shown here with rocket scientist Dr. Wernher von Braun (center) and a model of the Saturn rocket.

More broadly, one sees in the post-Kennedy era, a dramatic shift in national mission, or, one might better say, the lack of one. Whereas President Kennedy had initiated an Alliance for Progress approach of joint development with South America, subsequent Administrations turned more in the direction of out-and-out power politics. Within the United States, the mission-orientation of the Moon-landing, as an appropriate scientific frontier for the United States and all mankind, although it was accomplished after President Kennedy's death, was dropped. We headed straight into the "consumer-society" mode, as opposed to producing scientific breakthroughs.

Our task as a nation today, indeed, our very survival, depends upon reversing this post-Kennedy paradigm-shift. After 49 years in the wilderness of decline, the task is more than urgent.
