The Judgment of History; Or Why the Breaking of the Oligarchs Avenges President Kennedy's Assassination--Part Three

By Richard Girard

"A shocking crime was committed on the unscrupulous initiative of few individuals, with the blessing of more, and amid the passive acquiescence of all." -- Tacitus; The Histories, book 1, section 28, on the assassination of Emperor Galba.

"A whole new form of government is going to take over the country." -- Jack Ruby ; quoted in Assassination Science , James H. Fetzer, PhD. Editor; 1998, p.449

A Stunning Indifference to the Truth

Dealing with the Assassination of President Kennedy reminds me of the old myth of Hercules slaying the Hydra. Every time you think you have dealt with one problem, two more pop up to take its place.

There are individuals who simply do not like to deal with even the idea of a conspiracy. To them, the fact that Americans would actually conspire together to achieve a particular goal is UnAmerican, contrary in every sense of that word to the ideals upon which this nation was founded.

These people forget that the very founding of our nation arose out of conspiracies.

The Boston Tea Party in 1773, the Committees of Correspondence, and the formation of the Continental Congress. Conspiracy, conspiracy, conspiracy.

The Constitutional Convention was in fact a conspiracy to replace the defective Articles of Confederation that were threatening to turn the United States of America into thirteen small, bickering disunited nations. The Federalist Papers were a conspiracy of Hamilton, Madison, and Jay to insure the ratification of the new Constitution.

Not all of our conspiracies have been for our nation's benefit. Aaron Burr's conspiracy to form a new nation between the Appalachian Mountains and the Mississippi River, was certainly of no lasting benefit to the United States. The conspiracy of Andrew Jackson and Sam Houston to break off Texas from Mexico, and eventually bring it into the United States, would lead to The Mexican-American War, and finally The Civil War. That would lead at the war's end to America's most infamous conspiracy prior to JFK, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. I believe that Lincoln's murder prevented our recently freed African-Americans from achieving their full slate of civil and voting rights as citizens for a century.

There was also, unknown to most Americans, the highly nefarious conspiracy by a group of oligarchic plutocrats against President Franklin Roosevelt. In 1933, this group of men and women, including members of the Du Pont Family and the J.P. Morgan banking concern, plotted to overthrow President Franklin Roosevelt. They desired to set up a fascist state similar to Mussolini's Italy, using an army of American Legion members, led by retired Marine Major General Smedley Butler. Fortunately for our nation, General Butler was a true patriot who could not be bought--something the plotters had probably never had to deal with before, and he exposed the plutocratic conspiracy to members of Congress.

Unfortunately, these fascist oligarchs had enough economic and political clout to prevent the McCormack-Dickstein Congressional Committee from taking any action against them, and the truth was buried in an internal, secret report. This report was uncovered by John Spivak in 1967, and reported upon in his book A Man in His Time (New York: Horizon Press, 1967), demonstrating the duplicity of individuals including FDR's long time New York rival, Al Smith. (For additional information on this plot, see Jules Archer, The Plot to Seize the White House (New York: Hawthorne Books, 1973); George Seldes, Even the Gods Can't Change History (Secaucus, N.J.: Lyle Stuart, Inc., 1976); Jonathon Vankin and John Whalen, The 60 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time Secaucus, N.J.: Carol Publishing Group, 1997.)

The Assassination of President Kennedy has a single conspiracy whose existence cannot be denied: the conspiracy of the Main Stream Media (MSM) to downplay and otherwise ignore even the possibility of a criminal conspiracy against John F. Kennedy.

Richard Girard is a polymath and autodidact whose greatest desire in life is to be his generations' Thomas Paine. He is an FDR Democrat, which probably puts him with U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders in the current political spectrum. His answer to (more...)
