"THE President and the Press" on the Covert War We Still Face Today

A 1961 Call for Our Government and Media to Fill Its Obligation to the Public - a Call That Continues to Echo From the Early Shadows of a Covert War, Which Too Many Are STILL Being Destroyed by.

 JKF obviously anticipated the dangers we face today and tried to put an end to it. There is no doubt in my mind that this is why he was killed. The time to heed JFK's Wisdom on this subject of the covert war and its secret societies is long over-due. He said, "Today no war has been declared - and however fierce the struggle may be, it may never be declared in the traditional fashion. Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger. And yet no war has been declared, no borders have been crossed by marching troops, no missiles have been fired. If the press is awaiting a declaration of war before it imposes the self discipline of combat conditions then I can only say that no war ever posed a creator threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of 'clear and present danger,' then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent. It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions - by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader, and by every newspaper. for we are opposed, around the world, by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means..."

 As JFK exposed the dangers of a covert war he begged for the government and media to fulfill its obligation to us; "I want to talk about our common responsibilities in the face of a danger. . . the dimensions of its threat have loomed large on the horizon for many years. Whatever our hopes may be for the future - for reducing this threat or living with it - there is no escaping either the gravity or the totality of its challenge to our survival and to our security - a challenge that confronts us in unaccustomed ways in every sphere of human activity. ... This is a time of peace and peril, which knows no precedent in history. It is the unprecedented nature of this challenge that also gives rise to your second obligation, an obligation which I share. And that is our obligation to inform and alert the American people - to make certain that they possess all the facts that they need, and understand them as well. . . I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed." and “Government at all levels must meet its obligation to provide you with the fullest possible information out side the narrowest limits of national security. And so it is to the printing press – to the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the carrier of his news…that we look for strength and assistance, confident that, with your help, man will be what he was born to be – free and independent.”

PART of the 1961 Speech by President John F Kennedy (addressing secret societies)

Full version of the April 27, 1961 Speech by President John F Kennedy
(The best part starts around the 5:20 time period.)

JFK also said, "Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it."

Dear Obama, media, FBI and other government officials, I can only pray that this courageous speech will stand as an example for you, so that the lethal covert targeting and and loss of our freedom can start gaining the hope of being stopped, instead of allowed to continue and grow. It is better to die STANDING in the Light than it is to die kneeling down before those who remain a growing threat to ALL of us, including you. Seriously. JFK did the right thing, although he was killed for it. His Light STILL shines for us. Please let yours do the same.
