Thanks to ABigSecret for this submission.

wow. this is great. who

wow. this is great. who found this? i had never heard of this before. yet another reason why they killed his ass.......

Wow was just what I was

Wow was just what I was going to say. He nailed it. Evil has been winning for a long time now. It took a long time for most of us to recognize what some knew a long time ago. Secret governments within government must go.

That is really intense

That is really intense stuff. I have often thought that the secret society stuff would be unwise to introduce to a novice straight off the bat because of how much speculation there is surrounding it. This is a very important recording in my opinion to help people wrap their heads around the idea. I wonder how people I show this to will react. From infowars! I have to give Alex Jones credit regardless of what I think of him.

This is an amazing speech.

This is an amazing speech.

Sounds like it was recorded

Sounds like it was recorded yesterday. Very pristine.

I found out a few interesting things yesterday.

Abraham Zapruder, the guy who took the movie of the JFK assassination, was a Mason. The Masons of BC & Yukon have a profile on their website:


Interestingly, Zapruder was a born in Russia. Lee Harvey Oswald moved to the USSR and lived there for about 3 years, then moved back to the US. Oswald's wife was Russian (was she a "Sparrow"?).

And at Jim Fetzer's site assassinationscience.com, there's a section on how the Zapruder film was altered to support the official story.


Wow, great find guys ! Keep

Wow, great find guys !

Keep up the good work !

All the best.

I have to say, this speech

I have to say, this speech has nothing to do with secret societies. What he's talking about is the threat of Soviet led communism. This was April of 61, three months after he took office. JFK probably had been scared by the JCS and the military industrial complex into cowing the press. So he gives this speech saying the press should watch what it says for reasons of "national security."

I'm confused why Alex Jones and 9/11 blogger have titled this entry "JFK Secret Society Speech".

Here's a transcript:


Many people laugh at Skull &

Many people laugh at Skull & Bones. Such groups/cults are very real & very dangerous!

"I have to say, this speech

"I have to say, this speech has nothing to do with secret societies."

I think you're spot on, Mike. I admire much of what Alex Jones does, but I have a problem with him occassionally blurring facts in order to make his points.

Still, I enjoyed hearing the speech, and was also struck by how incredibly clear it was.

Not about secret societies.

Not about secret societies.

It's not at all clear that

It's not at all clear that he's referring to any communistic threat.

"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."

I'm not saying that secret

I'm not saying that secret societies and secret groups don't have a part to play in the world, I'm just saying that isn't what JFK talks about here. Sure, he denounces secrecy - which is good - but you'd have to cherry pick certain things and ignore most of the speech to spin it as a warning about secret societies. Let's be honest, folks.

Every mainstream reporter in

Every mainstream reporter in America needs to listen to this speech 5 times in a row.

He denounces secrecy and

He denounces secrecy and mentions secret societies and probably knew enough about History to realize that secret societies and cabals had been supporting both communism and fascism. Heck, he may even have read Hegel.

Mike in Spokane's 1:26 pm is

Mike in Spokane's 1:26 pm is dead on, saves me from typing. Nice speech though, nice soundbites.

I'm stunned that you guys

I'm stunned that you guys could think this was about anything other than fighting communism, ("advancing around the world") and he only mentions secrecy and secret society as a build-up towards calling on the newspaper publishers to be loyal soldiers in the Cold War. In effect, he's saying, yeah, we got no censorship, we're against secrecy, but the press should be "responsible", etc., think in terms of national security before publishing things. It's about communism. Case closed, people. He doesn't name it directly because he doesn't have to.

Yes, the sound is amazing.

hmmm. Yes with another

hmmm. Yes with another listen it seems to perhaps be a distraction.

False advertising! Why is

False advertising! Why is Alex Jones wasting our time? (911loggers, I have to think you did not read this, but posted it on faith - well, please read these things in the future!)

This speech has nothing, de nada, to do with secret societies. In fact, its message is nearly the opposite of what Jones claims. JFK says that the press should restrict themselves in the name of national security, given the communist threat and what he terms the equivalent of a state of war. (Bush Jr. would have had no trouble delivering the same speech.) JFK happens to mention at the beginning that the country's traditions do not fit in with secret societies (bullshit). But in the case of the press, says JFK, they should know to keep the government's secrets, otherwise they are endangering the country (with the terrorists, as Bush would say).

This speech has nothing, de

This speech has nothing, de nada, to do with secret societies. In fact, its message is nearly the opposite of what Jones claims. NL

I agree,,this has nothing...nothing to do with secret societies, this is a call for self censureship of the press in the name National security within the context of the cold war!!!!!!! I was most offended by his request that the media "mold' public opinion. Bush Jr. would love this speech.

Are we really that gullible or desperate that we project our own ideas into such a clear speech about the cold war. It makes me very concerned, if there wasn't other commentaters here who heard and labeled this speech for what it is. The result of fear mongering, even if it is a legitemate fear, results in quick and bad judgements in our quest to alleive our fears and anxieties.

I f 911 goes mainstream we are going to be offered alot of false 'boats of salvation' .

Settle down keep your heads on straight, your critical mind sharp and 'learn to swim'. Please ....Please...!

And Please let 911 blogger know about this speech through their feedback link.

What a great speech. Thanks

What a great speech. Thanks somebigguy. What a difference between JFK and the sub-human thug we have squatting in the Oval Office today. It breaks my heart. I remember 11/22/63 like it was yesterday. This country has never recovered. Worse than 9/11. Had JFK lived I can assure you we wouldnt be in the mess we are in today.

Many feel "The Communist

Many feel "The Communist Threat" was indeed another creation of the Secret Society PTB, ala their latest offering, the Global War On Terror Hoax (GWOTH).

One is G. Edward Griffin, author of "Creature From Jekyll Island,

Griffin's site,

Another author, Michael Nield, who wrote "The Police State Road Map", which draws from Griffin's and Alex Jones' work among many others,

The "The Communist Threat"

The "The Communist Threat" or the "Red Menace" was another scam just like the "Global War On Terror". Remember we must have an enemy to fight to keep the Military Industrial Complex going.

Maddog is basically right,

Maddog is basically right, the "cold war" was a cold laboratory concoction of Nazis and the military industrial complex in order to keep careers and profits going. The USSR never had any plans for a "world takeover" or anything of the sort, they were just struggling to keep the decrepit system they had up and running.

Now, some people claim that communism AS SUCH was simply a creation of the Council on Foreign Relations or whoever. That's just plain false. The communist movement was composed of millions - you read it right, millions - of people the world over who fought and gave their lives to find an alternative to the horrible exploitation and poverty of capitalism. They did indeed have to deal with horrible, often imposed leaders, infiltrations, but mostly plain violent opposition from the rulers of the capitalist system.

In a certain way - with all the other differences aside - it's similar to the Zarqawi situation. Zarqawi is and was a myth, a psyop lie, but for use by the US as a tool to cover up and distort the meaning of real, actual and massive bonafide resistance by the Iraqi people to foreign occupation.

BTW, now I'm shocked that JFK's speech is STILL billed here as being about secret societies. Anybody awake around here?

The way I see it his speech

The way I see it his speech was about an honest ond open media and government. I don't know what that has to do with secret societies. JFK wasn't perfect but he was the best president I have seen in my lifetime.

JFK was killed for a reason,

JFK was killed for a reason, wasn't
He was a Threat to Hidden Powers
There is no Debate!
It is pretty clear what he is talking about here.....
