- Long time reader first time poster here.
I disagree with this scenerio simply because the evidence shows an inside job and I doubt the Vietnamese had the power to pull this off. They just got
out of a major war with France and when we showed up it was a bunch of farmers who we were just sent to bother in a perpetual neverending war for
The biggest reason for his death......Executive Order 11110.
Take out a US dollar in your pocket. Notice it says "legal tender" and not backed by anything, It has been that way since the US did away with the
"gold standard". Read the executive order and notice it was going to establish a "silver standard".
Also look at the history of this executive order and notice LBJ killed it.
Speculation on why silver leads to other conspiracies about where all the gold went the US seized in 1933 (I think that was the year) where they took
in all the citizen gold and stockpiled it, which leads like I said to so many different theories.
Nobody will ever know what truley happened but IMHO it was this executive order that lead to his death.
President Kennedy's Executive Order (E.O.) 11110 modified the pre-existing Executive Order 10289 issued by U.S. President Harry S. Truman in 1951,
and stated the following:
"The Secretary of the Treasury is hereby designated and empowered to perform the following-described functions of the President without the approval,
ratification, or other action of the President..."
The order then lists tasks (a) through (h) which the Secretary may now do without instruction from the President. None of the powers assigned to the
Treasury in E.O. 10289 relate to money or to monetary policy. Kennedy's E.O. 11110 then instructs that:
SECTION 1. Executive Order No. 10289 of September 9, 1951, as amended, is hereby further amended (a) By adding at the end of paragraph 1 thereof the
following subparagraph (j):
'(j) The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821(b)), to issue silver
certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of an outstanding silver
certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their
redemption,' and (b) By revoking subparagraphs (b) and (c) of paragraph 2 thereof.
SECTION 2. The amendments made by this Order shall not affect any act done, or any right accruing or accrued or any suit or proceeding had or
commenced in any civil or criminal cause prior to the date of this Order but all such liabilities shall continue and may be enforced as if said
amendments had not been made.
John F. Kennedy,
THE WHITE HOUSE,
June 4, 1963.
- JFK was killed November 22, 1963
- LBJ initiated that redemption in silver ceased on June 24, 1968
I have read many theories but this one holds the most water of why............we are just left with how.
