Some people say when JFKennedy was assassinated in 1963 – by Americans – not Soviets – America lost it’s innocence – and i am happy that people are still interested to find out the truth and are just like me puzzling things together.

JFK was honest (!), courageous and brave – if Germans remember an US president – it is JFK.

Not only but also for his famous words in Berlin:

“Ich bin ein Berliner” – “I am one of you (a Berliner)”.

He was as popular as a rockstar not only in the US but also in Europe – he represented the American Dream.jfk

And yes – just as Gorbachev offered a more open and cooperative Russia – Kennedy offered a more cooperative rather than aggressive America.

But it’s the same with Zionists killing Jews (their own people!!!) that reach out the hand of peace to Arabs and Palestinians – extremists emerge and kill the people’s hope – to set off more satanic shock-waves of hate, violence and ignorance for profit and profit and profit.

The worst message the successful JFK assassination send into the subconsciousness of the public is: If you have powerful friends – you can get away with murder – you can get away with crime – crime pays off – so everybody:

cheat as much as you can – after all capitalism seems to be the game of “who cheats better and more wins”.

This culture of dishonesty – i can assure you – leads to a “planet of assholes” – a world you won’t want to have kids – because they won’t have a bright future – unless they become criminals.

It is this sort of corruption that actually brought to a fall – the Roman Empire. And it will bring to fall the US-Dollar-Empire.

30 years later – not a single person went to jail – because of the JFK murder. congratulations all involved.

And what is worse: The American Dream bubble burst. Instead of prosperity for all – the USA has become an bank-oil-drug-cia-money-and-mafia-ruled corrupted nation with an growing gap between rich and poor – on the brink of civil or social class war.

Once again: congratulations all involved.

a criminal career

Ever wondered – no matter how hard you work – no matter how intelligent you are – you will never become president of the United Sates?

Why? Because this position is not decided by “who is the most competent” – it is “who is corrupt enough to serve mafia interests”.

This is called “taking the risk out of democracy”. So they finance both sides of the war – and the election.

Because Skull and Bones 220px-bones_logowaffen-ss-skull-and-bones(they are simply pirates hating communists – loving privatization – because this means the world and everything on it can be bought with money) as well as their Princetown counterpart swore an oath to help other “Bonesmen” into powerful position – once they self got hold of one.

USA – the land of the brave and the free?

No! Being and honest and decent man in a powerful position will get you killed.

Because USA is the land of the pirate-conspiracy-mafia and friends – for maximum exploitation and enslavement of the planet and it’s people – no matter the social or environmental costs.

Poor and stupid die – so that fat cats can make a kill.

skullandbones-crossedlegs

JFK even uses the word they try to demonize so massively (because it is true) “conspiracy” in this talk from

In Europe there are probably as many Illuminati-members, P2-members and Free Maisons-members than in USA… doing evil manipulation for there own profits and friends.

If you believe the OFFICIAL VERSION of how JFK was murdered – by a lonely lunatic named Oswald – and not a carefully planed conspiracy with 8 riflemen that shot at JFK in Dallas from different angles… and a lot of bullets missed – if the conspiracy-mafia would be honest to you – they would laugh you in the face how naive and stupid you are.

Question: Oswald is NOT resisting arrest and even says in this video he is used as a patsy.

Why is he shouting “i am not resisting arrest!” – because some policemen are pushing him towards the spot where he is assassinated by Mobster (Mafia (Occupation Nightclub operator) prominent jewish figure Jack Ruby – who then later died in prison before the end of his trial.

This is what you get for doing business with the CIA. In the end – the deep state itself – is the biggest mafia.

It is also interesting why they picked Osswald – he is married to a Russian (!) woman – so they surely want to blame it on their all-time-enemy: “the (Russian) communists”.

Some people say the sole purpose of Nazi-Germany (hence the US support in the beginning) was all about a bulwark against communism – and maybe also profiteering by selling weapons and ammunition to Britain.

Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ), was 37th Vice President of the United States under President John F. Kennedy from 1961 to 1963 and with Kennedy’s death became 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969.

So he had clear motives. This is confirmed in this testimony 2007 by Everette Howard Hunt, Jr. (October 9, 1918 – January 23, 2007) who was an American intelligence officer and writer.

From 1949 to 1970, Hunt served as an officer in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Along with G. Gordon Liddy and others, Hunt was one of the Nixon administrationplumbers“, a secret team of operatives charged with fixing “leaks“.

He mentions Cord Meyer Junior (November 10, 1920 – March 13, 2001) who also CIA but mostly blaming LBJ who after the staged Gulf of Tonkin attack also (!) escalated / started the Vietnam war on 8 March 1965, two battalions of U.S. Marines waded ashore on the beaches at Danang.

“President Lyndon B. Johnson cited the attacks to persuade Congress to authorize broad military action in Vietnam, but historians in recent years have concluded that the Aug. 4 attack never happened.”

src: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/15/world/asia/15vietnam.html?_r=3&emc=eta1

“prompted Congress to approve the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution on 7 August 1964,[186] signed by Johnson, and gave the president power to conduct military operations in Southeast Asia without declaring war.[187]

Those 3,500 soldiers were the first combat troops the United States had dispatched to South Vietnam – a probably phony,  unnecessary and useless war.

War is good business.

War is big business for some of the very corrupt, ignorant, heartless and ruthless individuals and investors.

In 1935, Edward Aubrey Clark became assistant to Governor James Allred.

Soon after, he met Lyndon B. Johnson and the two men became close friends.

Governor Allred appointed Clark secretary of state in 1937. The following year, Clark opened a private law practice with Everett Looney.[1] He also worked as a political lobbyist for the oil industry. One of his main clients was Big Oil, a company owned by Clint Murchison and Wofford Cain. He was also a member of the Texas Guard.

After Pearl Harbor, Clark joined the United States Army. During the Second World War, he served as a captain in the Quartermaster Corps. Clark then returned to Austin. In 1944, Clark recruited Don Thomas and his law firm became known as Clark, Thomas and Winters. Over the next few years, it became one of the most influential and successful firms in Texas. Clark also served as chairman of Texas Commerce Bank of Austin and the First National Bank of San Augustine.[1]

In 1948, Clark was appointed as Lyndon Johnson’s legal counsel when Coke Stevenson contested Johnson’s seventy-one-vote victory in the United States Senate race. He remained active in the Democratic Party and was associated with those opposed to the liberal elements led by Texas Senator Ralph Yarborough. After the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963, Lyndon Johnson became president. In 1965, Johnson appointed Clark as the country’s ambassador to Australia.[1]

In the 1972 U.S. presidential campaign, he supported Richard Nixon over George McGovern. In 1974, Nixon appointed Clark to the General Advisory Committee of the United States Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. Later, Clark supported Ronald Reagan in his campaign to become president.[1]

8 riflemen

The names of all 8 rifleman are known – they paid each 50.000USD – some were Cubans. (realize now how manipulative the hole thing is?)

His security bodyguards were not in the position they were supposed to be (there are handles on his car… ) the motorcycle-police could have ridden next to him – not behind him – the driver could have accelerated not slowed down.

They were all part of the game. While Mr Bush Senior and Co were standing in the crowd and grinned.

Because Kennedy, being an honest and decent man to become president (no one expected that – he even tricked the mafia at their own game).

JFK’s father was actually also a mafiosi selling illegal alcohol. Despised by his father’s way of career he decided to do different.

Another story you won’t believe: The Marshall-Plan was largely a JP Morgan production (and JP Morgan could be Rothschild’s middleman) serviced to you and the world by middleman. In 1907 there was no central bank FED – but there was a massive finance-sector-unemployment crisis just as 1929 – and while a lot of other banks were bankrupted – JP Morgan came out of the crisis even richer.

Because he know how to manipulate the market and make it crash so he could buy cheap.

But the real goal is to steal and enslave as much pirates can steal – the whole world – the moon – the universe.

They become richer with EVERY crisis – they know how to cause crisis – they become richer with every WAR. So don’t sell your human blood and life cheap to those war-mongering monsters.

They loved Naziism and hate communism – because this means all property belongs to the state (another monopoly – does not fix the corruption problem) – for them the 2nd World War could have lasted longer.

Vietnam was meant to be a long lasting war – 20 years is 10 years longer than WW2.

But the goal of any pirate is – to steal what ever there is that can be stolen – no matter if that means killing decent and honest people like JFK.

I just wished – they would all be put on a list – and shot – because they are the REAL TERRORISTS.

Please take the time and download this video and watch it with your family on your TV… because it won’t be on TV – because the media is not independent. Yes it is long and cruel – but that’s your average Vietnam-War-Movie too.

Please carefully read the following declaration.

We, the people, do hereby give notice of our intention to withdraw completely any mandate to rule from the British and American establishment. We feel this is necessary because:

1. It has become abundantly clear that the Anglo-American establishment is composed of a cabal of secret Nazis whose forebears financed the Hitler regime, and who are now conducting a class war upon their own people in order to maintain themselves at the top of the social hierarchy. They are doing this through acts of phoney terrorism e.g. 911, the Bali Bomb, the Woolwich barracks incident and London tube bombings in order to keep the public living in a state of fear; and deliberately causing economic recession by using their financial resources to manipulate commodities markets, especially for oil, in ways which lead inevitably to global fiscal crises like the credit crunch.

2. It is equally clear that the elite group of Fascists now controlling the world use murder and assassination as a tool of convenience to aggrandize their own power and influence. Most important amongst these acts has been the assassinations of John Fitzgerald Kennedy; his brother Bobby, Martin Luther King and the Rock Star John Lennon. In more recent times the murders of Lady Diana Spencer, the Left-Wing politicians John Smith and Robin Cook and the Historian John Costello make it manifestly clear that the Right Wing are perfectly willing to eliminate absolutely anyone: regardless of status, position, or any exceptional gifts, who might interfere with their ambitions for world domination. The preference in modern times to arrange the “accidents” which claimed the lives of John F Kennedy jnr and Dorothy Wetzel Hunt; and the “unfortunate illnesses” which removed effective critics like the Comedian Bill Hicks and Aaron Russo clearly demonstrates that these acts are being committed by rich savages who really do live by the philosophy that all compassion is weakness.

3. Recent investigative journalism, and the mainstream media’s treatment of it, has made it equally clear that this cabal of secret Nazis have been using their financial power since the second world war to maintain an international Paedophile ring which is kidnapping children from orphanages on a world-wide basis in order to use them as sexual slaves. The Franklin scandal in America and the Jimmy Saville scandal in the UK ( which the Royal Family has refused to comment on ) indicate that both of the George Bush presidents, former Prime Minister of Great Britain Edward Heath, Liberal Party leader Cyril Smith and many other senior establishment figures have been beneficiaries of this service, which is maintained by a secret society of Freemasons on both sides of the Atlantic. Evidence ( and much more importantly the covering up of evidence like the last-minute withdrawal of the “Conspiracy Of Silence” Television documentary ) now suggests that this Paedophile ring’s activities led directly to the Dunblane massacre of sixteen Scottish Schoolchildren. The press at the time of these murders was gagged from accurately reporting what had really happened by the British Prime Minister at that time, Tony Blair, who issued a D-Notice, a contingency reserved only for wartime, to prevent any further Press speculation or discussion about the story. Why would he do that?

4. It is beyond question that the rabid corruption flourishing at the highest levels of government during the Kennedy assassination; and which later became manifest to the American people during Watergate, is still flourishing today, and has a soul mate in the many expenses scandals which have ensnared almost every British politician. There can no longer be any doubt that the Western political class are mere Pawns of a never-seen investor class who privately own all Clearing Banks and Energy Industries. In order to serve their masters well this corrupt political class have encouraged immigration from Islamic countries in order to provide indigenous populations with an enemy: a Bogeyman, who they can blame for acts of terrorism which, as with the 1980 Bologna Railway Station bombing as well as those already mentioned, are actually being perpetrated by the Military Intelligence Services, the Central Intelligence Agency and M.I.5.

The situation which we now face, as a Democratic people, could therefore hardly be more critical. A totally corrupt class of rich Psycopaths is now imposing a Totalitarian rule upon us by completely controlling all mainstream media and conducting a phoney ‘war on terror’ in which they murder their own citizens, whilst sodomizing children who are often later killed ( Barrister Michael Shrimpton has alleged that Ted Heath would drown them by throwing them off his Yacht the ‘Morning Cloud’ ) and, as at the Haute De La Garenne orphanage, burned to hide the evidence. If British and American adults wish to go on believing that we are a decent people something clearly has got to be done. Certain immediate steps must now be taken, the most important of which is the arrest, imprisonment and interrogation of the entire Anglo-American establishment. As daunting as this may seem, nothing less will restore the democratic principles by which our Western world is supposed to live. All senior Judges, all senior Military personnel, all senior civil servants, all senior Politicians, all senior Police Officers and all elite families whose business interests include control of Newspapers, Energy, Land, Telecommunications, Shipping, Airlines and Financial Services must be scrutinized in an open public forum until we as a people find out exactly how many spies and intelligence agents are working for the cause of Fascism inside the media, education, politics and law enforcement.

IF YOU BROADLY AGREE WITH THIS DECLARATION PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO: everythingisaRMT@yahoo.com SAYING ONLY “I AGREE”.

NOTHING MORE IS REQUIRED.

Many people will read this and will agree that the time for revolution has come. They will ask “But what can I do?” To such people I say this: do not underestimate your own power. It is a commonplace of living in modern super-states that people see themselves now as tiny things, helpless against a Gargantuan force which has soldiers by the million and armies bristling with Nuclear weapons. Do not think that way. If you send your children to school in printed T-shirts which say “Diana was murdered by the Queen” and written on the back “All terrorism is phoney” the establishment will tremble. If you buy a can of paint and daub the same slogan on walls and Motorway Bridges which many people see every day, the powerful will shake.

Those who wish to do so, and who want to understand what is really going on today, can further benefit their education by watching the following YouTube videos.

 

1. “Edward the Traitor King” This Channel 4 documentary features an interview with the brilliant Historian John Costello. As one of the first intellectuals to begin uncovering the links between the Royal Family and the construction of the Nazi concentration camps he was murdered by M.I.5 who slipped a bio-toxin into his food.

2. ‘Royal Babylon‘ by Alex Cox, the former Moviedrome presenter.

3. ‘The Brotherhood Of The Bell‘ with Glenn Ford and William Conrad. This made-for-TV Film is a truly terrifying insight into the workings of the White WASP secret societies like Skull&Bones which have influenced American Business and culture every bit as much as the Sicilian Mafia.

4. ‘Hitler’s American Business Partners‘ who included Irene Dupont, Prescott Bush and Henry Ford. These were the people vilified but, you will notice, never actually named during Maximillian Schmell’s famous outburst in ‘Judgement at Nuremberg’.

5. ‘Loose Change‘ by Dylan Avery

6. ‘September Clues’ by Simon Shack, the first of the Films to suggest there were no aircraft involved in the attacks on the Twin Towers.

7. ‘The Ultimate 911 No-Planes convincer’ by Alexander ‘Ace’ Baker, this gives useful further insights into how easily modern computer graphics can be used for military intelligence deception by authoritarian regimes.

8. ‘Pilots For 911 Truth‘ this video uses the laws of Physics, by showing test-rig demonstrations, to prove that no Boeing 767 can fly at the speeds claimed in the official report at sea-level without disintegrating and that hence, every single second of Broadcast material depicting planes flying into the Twin Towers was a Computer Generated fake which all mainstream Broadcasters knew about.

9. ‘Cyril Smith: How did he get away with it?‘ Another Channel 4 documentary of the kind never undertaken by today’s BBC ( what do we pay our license fee for??? ) which uncovers the former UK Liberal Party politician’s years of ritual abuse upon young boys and the relentless official complaints and police investigations into his conduct, none of which ever led to a prosecution. One law for the rich?

10. ‘Operation Gladio‘ a throwback to the days before the rich Fascists bought off the BBC this documentary examines the terrorist attacks upon mainland Europe by the CIA after WW2, including the bombing of Bologna railway station in which the Bristol couple Harry and Shirley Mitchell lost their daughter Catherine.

One may be perfectly certain that the BBC and all other mainstream Broadcasters will emphatically deny their part in the ongoing deceiving of the civilized world and that they will deal with this new Film in the same way that they have dealt with all other truth-seeking initiatives: by ignoring them. I therefore wish to offer a challenge to the BBC. If there is no substance to any of the claims made by critics who are now saying that we are being ruled by Nazis who are imposing a phoney war on terror upon the West, and that these Nazis are using public-service Broadcasting to carry their message by creating an entirely spurious version of reality on our Tele-screens in precisely the way that George Orwell said they would, then it is clearly the case that no-one in a position of higher authority has anything to fear by careful scrutiny of these claims in an open, public forum. I therefore challenge the BBC to a Live Televised debate at which exerts from Films like ‘Loose Change’ and ‘Pilots For 911 Truth’ may be shown and their scientific claims scrutinized by experts in order to allow the Public to come to their own conclusions as to who is telling the truth here. After all, in a genuine Democracy, everyone is allowed to make up their own minds, aren’t they? And if the laws of Physics support the establishment, they have nothing to worry about. If, however, they refuse to meet this challenge within a week of ‘JFK to 911-Everything is a Rich Man’s trick’ going viral, then the world will be forced to come to the conclusion that they do have something to worry about.

And please, DO NOT VOTE. The rich are simply laughing at you when you vote; for does any adult seriously believe it is possible to change their country, or the world, by putting an X in a square?? It is time to grow up. No-one ever gets to vote against the rich.

Transcript of the speech that got Kennedy killed:

“The plot to kill JFK had its origins in two speeches the President made. The first speech was made 10 days following the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, and 10 days after a defiant JFK said “no” to the CIA, the Joint Chiefs, the Mafia and the Cuban refugees, by refusing to provide air cover for the invasion of Cuba by CIA trained Cuba refugees, JFK made the speech that put one of the final nails in his coffin.

The JFK speech is now known as his famous “Secret Society” speech. JFK was the first and the only President to ever identify the globalists as the enemy of America and humanity as a whole. For a man in his position, JFK was stunningly detailed in calling out the globalists of his day.”

Here is the full speech:

And here is the transcript:

“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. 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. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.”

In my efforts to provide you a transcript of the attached file, I have discovered that the above paragraph is word for word the first 1:26.

The next 3 paragraphs and the first sentence of the next paragraph were omitted. I do not know why since I do not know what the editor of the original speech had in his or her mind. The file continues …..

“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”

End at 2:28 – This is a solid piece in the transcript but ends mid paragraph.

Several more paragraphs of the transcript are skipped and the file continues…….

“No President should fear public scrutinity of his program. For from that scrutiny comes understanding; and from that understanding comes support or opposition. And both are necessary. I am not asking your newspapers to support the Administration, but I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people. For I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed.

I not only could not stifle controversy among your readers– I welcome it. This Administration intends to be candid about its errors; for as a wise man once said: “An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors; and we expect you to point them out when we miss them.

Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed– and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First (emphasized) Amendment– the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution– not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and sentimental, not to simply “give the public what it wants”–but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold educate and sometimes even anger public opinion.

This means greater coverage and analysis of international news– for it is no longer far away and foreign but close at hand and local. It means greater attention to improved understanding of the news as well as improved transmission. And it means, finally, that government at all levels, must meet its obligation to provide you with the fullest possible information outside the narrowest limits of national security…

This part ends at 4:52. mid sentence. It left out “–and we intend to do it.” It also skips a paragraph and then the file continues …

“And so it is to the printing press–to the recorder of mans deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier 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.”

“Unfortunately this earth is not a fairy-land, but a struggle for life, perfectly natural and therefore extremely harsh.”
– Martin Bormann, Former German Military.

But is it perfectly natural for mankind to destroy itself? If this is so – homo is not sapiens.

here is the full speech:

Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen:

I appreciate very much your generous invitation to be here tonight.

You bear heavy responsibilities these days and an article I read some time ago reminded me of how particularly heavily the burdens of present day events bear upon your profession.

You may remember that in 1851 t. he New York Herald Tribune, under the sponsorship and publishing of Horace Greeley, employed as its London correspondent an obscure journalist by the name of Karl Marx.

We are told that foreign correspondent Marx, stone broke, and with a family ill and undernourished, constantly appealed to Greeley and Managing Editor Charles Dana for an increase in his munificent salary of $5 per installment, a salary which he and Engels ungratefully labeled as the “lousiest petty bourgeois cheating.”

But when all his financial appeals were refused, Marx looked around for other means of livelihood and fame, eventually terminating his relationship with the Tribune and devoting his talents full time to the cause that would bequeath to the world the seeds of Leninism, Stalinism, revolution and the cold war.

If only this capitalistic New York newspaper had treated him more kindly; if only Marx had remained a foreign correspondent, history might have been different. And I hope all publishers will bear this lesson in mind the next time they receive a poverty-stricken appeal for a small increase in the expense account from an obscure newspaper

I have selected as the title of my remarks tonight “The President and the Press.” Some may suggest that this would be more naturally worded “The President Versus the Press.” But those are not my sentiments tonight.

It is true, however, that when a well-known diplomat from another country demanded recently that our State Department repudiate certain newspaper attacks on his colleague it was unnecessary for us to reply that this Administration was not responsible for the press, for the press had already made it clear that it was not responsible for this Administration.

Nevertheless, my purpose here tonight is not to deliver the usual assault on the so-called one-party press. On the contrary, in recent months I have rarely heard any complaints about political bias in the press except from a few Republicans. Nor is it my purpose tonight to discuss or defend the televising of Presidential press conferences. I think it is highly beneficial to have some 20,000,000 Americans regularly sit in on these conferences to observe, if I may say so, the incisive, the intelligent and the courteous qualities displayed by your Washington correspondents.

Nor, finally, are these remarks intended to examine the proper degree of privacy which the press should allow to any President and his family.

If in the last few months your White House reporters and photographers have been attending church services with regularity, that has surely done them no harm.

On the other hand, I realize that your staff and wire service photographers may be complaining that they do not enjoy the same green privileges at the local golf courses which they once did.

It is true that my predecessor did not object as I do to pictures of one’s golfing skill in action. But neither on the other hand did he ever bean a Secret Service man. My topic tonight is a more sober one of concern to publishers as well as editors.

I want to talk about our common responsibilities in the face of a common danger. The events of recent weeks may have helped to illuminate that challenge for some; but 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 deadly challenge imposes upon our society two requirements of direct concern both to the press and to the President–two requirements that may seem almost contradictory in tone, but which must be reconciled and fulfilled if we are to meet this national peril. I refer, first, to the need for far greater public information; and, second, to the need for far greater official secrecy.

I.

The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. 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. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.

But I do ask every publisher, every editor, and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his own standards, and to recognize the nature of our country’s peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort, based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of “clear and present danger,” the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public’s need for national security.

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 greater 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 for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.

Nevertheless, every democracy recognizes the necessary restraints of national security-and the question remains whether those restraints need to be more strictly observed if we are to oppose this kind of attack as well as outright invasion.

For the facts of the matter are that this nation’s foes have openly boasted of acquiring through our newspapers information they would otherwise hire agents to acquire through theft, bribery or espionage; that details of this nation’s covert preparations to counter the enemy’s covert operations have been available to every newspaper reader, friend and foe alike; that the size, the strength, the location and the nature of our forces and weapons, and our plans and strategy for their use, have all been pinpointed in the press and other news media to a degree sufficient to satisfy any foreign power; and that, in at least one case, the publication of details concerning a secret mechanism whereby satellites were followed required its alteration at the expense of considerable time and money.

The newspapers which printed these stories were loyal, patriotic, responsible and well-meaning. Had we been engaged in open warfare, they undoubtedly would not have published such items. But in the absence of open warfare, they recognized only the tests of journalism and not the tests of national security. And my question tonight is whether additional tests should not now be adopted.

That question is for you alone to answer. No public official should answer it for you. No governmental plan should impose its restraints against your will. But I would be failing in my duty to the Nation, in considering all of the responsibilities that we now bear and all of the means at hand to meet those responsibilities, if I did not commend this problem to your attention, and urge its thoughtful consideration.

On many earlier occasions, I have said-and your newspapers have constantly said-that these are times that appeal to every citizen’s sense of sacrifice and self-discipline. They call out to every citizen to weigh his rights and comforts against his obligations to the common good. I cannot now believe that those citizens who serve in the newspaper business consider themselves exempt from that appeal.

I have no intention of establishing a new Office of War Information to govern the flow of news. I am not suggesting any new forms of censorship or new types of security classifications. I have no easy answer to the dilemma that I have posed, and would not seek to impose it if I had one. But I am asking the members of the newspaper profession and the industry in this country to reexamine their own responsibilities, to consider the degree and the nature of the present danger, and to heed the duty of self-restraint which that danger imposes upon us all.

Every newspaper now asks itself, with respect to every story: “Is it news?” All I suggest is that you add the question: “Is it in the interest of the national security?” And I hope that every group in America-unions and businessmen and public officials at every level–will ask the same question of their endeavors, and subject their actions to this same exacting test.

And should the press of America consider and recommend the voluntary assumption of specific new steps or machinery, I can assure you that we will cooperate whole-heartedly with those recommendations.

Perhaps there will be no recommendations. Perhaps there is no answer to the dilemma faced by a free and open society in a cold and secret war. In times of peace, any discussion of this subject, and any action that results, are both painful and without precedent. But this is a time of peace and peril which knows no precedent in history.

II.

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–the perils, the prospects, the purposes of our program and the choices that we face.

No President should fear public scrutiny of his program. For from that scrutiny comes understanding; and from that understanding comes support or opposition. And both are necessary. I am not asking your newspapers to support the Administration, but I .am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people. For I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed.

I not only could not stifle controversy among your readers–I welcome it. This Administration intends to be candid about its errors; for, as a wise man once said: “An error doesn’t become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors; and we expect you to point them out when we miss them.

Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed-and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law-maker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment–the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution–not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply “give the public what it wants”–but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger public opinion.

This means greater coverage and analysis of international news–for it is no longer far away and foreign but close at hand and local. It means greater attention to improved understanding of the news as well as improved transmission. And it means, finally, that government at all levels, must meet its obligation to provide you with the fullest possible information outside the narrowest limits of national security–and we intend to do it.

III.

It was early in the Seventeenth Century that Francis Bacon remarked on three recent inventions already transforming the world: the compass, gunpowder and the printing press. Now the links between the nations first forged by the compass have made us all citizens of the world, the hopes and threats of one becoming the hopes and threats of us all. In that one world’s efforts to live together, the evolution of gunpowder to its ultimate limit has warned mankind of the terrible consequences of failure.

And so it is to the printing press–to the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier 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.
