On a scale of "A for Acceptable" to "F for Fire His Ass", I hand out my presidential report card. Will John F. Kennedy be able to pass the Body's class? Myself and my Vigilant Producer Alex Logan put the legacy of 35th U.S. President to the test on today's #OffTheGrid. How would you rank JFK?

Considering that Abraham Lincoln and JFK were assassinated, only points to the fact that they were one hell of threat to those oligarchic establishments which they knew had the potential to run the country into what we know it is today.

An "A" no doubt from me for both, followed by Eisenhower, who where basically not afraid to speak out about the "potential of misplaced power".

Peace

Interestingly enough, JFK was also the last US president to go against the status quo... every single president since him has unquestioningly fallen in line and marched in lockstep with their puppet masters.

Apparently, blowing someone's skull to kingdom come out in the wide open for all to see has an influencial impact afterall.

If Bernie Sanders is elected and then assassinated, in my mind it will 100% prove that JFK was assassinated for going against the status quo. It will be an interesting thing to watch.

I'd like to see a JFK versus Reagan comparison and contrast.

had a discussion about JFK recently and I found it amusing...

Unfortunately most of the people I know cant seem to accept the idea that both parties suck..

my friends were arguing that he would have been R, or D and were listing reasons why..

I pointed out his stances really dont line up with either party in a lot of cases, I think he would have been an independent candidate in todays day. But thats just my opinion... that and a couple bucks will get you a cup of coffee.

If he was an independent candidate today, assuming that means his father would also be around but who could he bribe to help get his son elected if he was an independent? Would the mafia really care about what an independent could offer them? Having said that, their thoughts did get somewhat murderous when he didn't back up his promise to get them their Cuba casinos back.

I guess he nearly brought the world to nuclear war because of Bay of Pigs so in that sense I think he has come closest to blowing us all to kingdom come that must be a plus, nearly responsible for the deaths of more people than any other president has even come close to. He did provide tens of thousands of Americans with gainful employment via the Vietnam so he created jobs, he'd certainly fit well into todays celebrity obsessed culture what with him having a beautiful wife yet having sex with every woman he could, so yeah, perfect fit really.

"Rome tried it. it didn't work"!

Didn't it? Seems to me the Romans were rather successful for a considerable period of time . . . . . . . And the decline is still heavily debated, with many believing that lead poisoning contributed massively to their decline and downfall.

JFK has so many interesting anecdotes surrounding his life and Presidency that I am not surprised we are still discussing him today - in fact I would wager as I am sure Jesse would (although I am respectfully opposed to much of Jesse's approach to be frank) that we would be even more inclined to talk JFK if he had lived, secured a second term, ended the wars, abolished the CIA, and changed the direction of Government UFO "procedure" from that point on - what a different would we would inhabit right now if that timeline had played out instead.

Bloody shame, I have always thought so, since a child - We are all drawn to him, he was extremely charismatic and commanded a powerful allure among the citizenry.

Which is probably why he was killed, if you want to go full tinfoil. The only world leader I can think of off the top of my head that isn't an absolute joke right now is Putin, maybe the Chinese leader who I don't know. Is it simply that politics is really hard, or attracts incompetent people... Or something darker?

Not only earned an A for assassination, so did RFK and MLK as soon as they both came out against the Vietnam war.

Strange how nobody does that anymore? When was the last time a politician denounced the endless cycle of war we are currently in? I don't mean in passing or around election time, but made it a platform? They know what their reward for that is.

I'd rate JFK lower than Nixon in a head to head competition. Inexperienced, compared to Nixon. Wealthy playboy, compared to Nixon. Did not get fast promotions in the Navy, like Nixon did. Soft on Communism, the opposite of Nixon.

Bernie Sanders seems to be denouncing war, sort of.

Experienced =/= Competent.

Well, I'd even go farther than that. I'd say a person that would go against the flow quite possibly would be assassinated before the election if it looks like they might win.

It's possibly true. I think right now Bernie Sanders is the only one. Rand Paul is in opposition to it on the Republican side. Until they're in a position where they might win, there's no threat, because you're not a threat unless you might win. But if Sanders gets the nomination, then he might be a threat.
