Fact 31: The international money lenders are the only entity that’s had any true motive for every assassination attempt on U.S. Presidents. (Notice how the assassins are always crazy and/or psychotic?)
(1) Andrew Jackson
The Bank War is the name given to the controversy over the Second Bank of the United States and the attempts to destroy it by President Andrew Jackson. At that time, it was the only nationwide bank and, along with its president Nicholas Biddle, exerted tremendous influence over the nation’s financial system. Jackson viewed the Second Bank of the United States as a monopoly since it was a private institution managed by a board of directors, and in 1832 he vetoed the renewal of its charter. …
Andrew Jackson’s background contributed to his veto of the bank’s charter. Jackson had owed debts to banks during his earlier years, and had experienced the plight of the indebted, who would often have their property and anything of value repossessed by banks, over what were often termed unfair agreements. He was a strong advocate for hard currency. His negative personal experiences contributed to his hostility towards banks and the use of fiat money. … Jackson issued the Specie Circular in 1836. This document required all purchases of federal lands to be paid in metal coin rather than paper money. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bank_War)
In January 1835, Jackson paid off the entire national debt, the only time in U.S. history that has been accomplished. The accomplishment was short lived. A severe depression from 1837 to 1844 caused a tenfold increase in national debt within its first year. …
“The Bank”, Jackson told Martin Van Buren, “is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Jackson)
(2) Abraham Lincoln
The Eastern banks had agreed to a $150 million government loan package just after the Civil War commenced in 1861. They would resell U.S. bonds in England with the Barings and Rothschilds, putting the United States at the mercy of the British aristocracy. …
In December 1861, President Lincoln’s own financial plan was presented by Treasury Secretary Salmon Chase … .
Lincoln appointed McCulloch as treasury secretary in March, 1865. The following month the war ended, and Lincoln was assassinated. McCulloch and his international banking allies quickly went on the offensive against Lincoln’s entire economic program. (http://american_almanac.tripod.com/lincoln3.htm)
(3) James A. Garfield
… President Garfield advocated a bi-metal monetary system, agricultural technology, an educated electorate, and civil rights for African Americans. He proposed substantial civil service reform, eventually passed in 1883 by his successor, Chester A. Arthur, as the Pendleton Civil Service Reform Act. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_A._Garfield)
In economics, bimetallism is a monetary standard in which the value of the monetary unit is defined as equivalent both to a certain quantity of gold and to a certain quantity of silver; such a system establishes a fixed rate of exchange between the two metals. In 1787 the United States Constitution established gold and silver as the legal tender of the United States … .
In the United States, bimetallism became a center of political conflict toward the end of the nineteenth century. During the civil war, to finance the war the U.S. switched from bimetallism to a fiat money currency. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bimetallism)
(4) William McKinley
McKinley’s claim as the “advance agent of prosperity” was confirmed when 1897 brought a revival of business, agriculture, and general prosperity, ending the Panic of 1893 … . The end of the deflationary period resulted largely from a gradual adoption of gold, culminating in passage of the Gold Standard Act of 1900 … .
… He delivered a speech about his positions on tariffs and foreign trade on September 5, 1901. The following morning, McKinley visited Niagara Falls before returning to the Exposition. That afternoon McKinley had an engagement to greet the public at the Temple of Music. Standing in line, Leon Frank Czolgosz waited with a .32 caliber pistol in his right hand concealed by a handkerchief. At 4:07 pm Czolgosz fired twice at the president.

(5) John F. Kennedy
Kennedy encountered problems with the Israeli government regarding the production of nuclear weapons in Dimona. After the existence of a nuclear plant was initially denied by the Israeli government, David Ben-Gurion, in a speech to the Israeli Knesset on December 21, 1960, stated that the purpose of the nuclear plant at Beersheba was for “research in problems of arid zones and desert flora and fauna”. When Ben-Gurion met with Kennedy in New York, he claimed that Dimona was being developed to provide nuclear power for desalinization and “for the time being the only purposes [of the nuclear plant] are for peace”. … According to Seymour Hersh, the Israelis set up false control rooms to show American inspectors. … A science attaché at the embassy in Tel Aviv concluded that parts of the Dimona facility had been “purposely mothballed” to mislead American scientists during their visit.
… Yale law professor Charles Reich wrote in The New Republic his opinion that the administration had violated civil liberties by calling a grand jury to indict US Steel for collusion so quickly.
… Executive Order 11110 was issued by U.S. President John F. Kennedy on June 4, 1963.
This executive order delegated to the Secretary of the Treasury the president’s authority to issue silver certificates under the Thomas Amendment of the Agricultural Adjustment Act.
… Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas … . … Lee Harvey Oswald, an employee of the Texas School Book Depository from which the shots were suspected to have been fired, was arrested on charges for the murder of a local police officer and was subsequently charged with the assassination of Kennedy. He denied shooting anyone, claiming he was a patsy, but was shot and killed two days later by Jack Ruby before a trial could take place. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_F._Kennedy)
President Kennedy’s Speech at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel April 27th, 1961
Please listen @: “President and the Press” Speech (April 27, 1961)
…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.
…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. … 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. … 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.
… 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.
… 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. – J.F.K
