November 22 marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy by the CIA’s Executive Action Program, a division deep inside counterintelligence formed by James Angelton, a minion of Allen Dulles, cousin of David Rockefeller.
Right before Kennedy died, Rockefeller wrote an op-ed piece in the New York Times denouncing his policies. The oil companies were especially concerned about JFK’s plans to end the oil depletion allowance that had allowed the oil companies to take over the economy. In fact, the Texas oil cartel (Hunts, Murchison) put up the money for the actual assassins, who were recruited by Johnny Roselli.
JFK was the youngest president ever elected to office, son of a former bootlegger who’d amassed a fortune running rum out of Cuba during Prohibition. During his brief time in office, JFK went through an amazing transformation and eventually went up against the most powerful forces in the country in an attempt to shift away from the cold war mentality and towards making the world a safer place to live. Peace was a popular desire at the time, especially among the young, and JFK respected that direction, even if it did conflict with plans to build a new American empire starting with Vietnam. JFK wanted to stop the war in Vietnam before it started. He wanted to end the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on the creation of money. He wanted to end the oil depletion allowance that had made the oil companies the most powerful corporations on the planet. He wanted to fire J. Edgar Hoover and bust the CIA into a thousand pieces. He wanted to establish peace with Cuba. And he wanted to dismantle the nuclear arms race and work for world peace. Any one of these would have been enough to prompt the oligarchy that really rules America to start working against his re-election. But JFK had become too dangerous to live. So they had to remove him the best way they know how. In a ritual “killing of the King” in a public area, an event that was designed to achieve as much shock and awe as possible. But we almost had a second coming. His son was poised to take his place, and complete the vision his father left undone. And then JFK’s murderers did the unthinkable: they assassinated his son. Someday, the country must address these crimes.
