John F. Kennedy’s speech on secret societies and freedom of the press transcribed into text

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

**** Its getting bad now, they took out our fund raising, so now we are being attacked economically.  They also removed our vatic  note, so if you visited it earlier you would have seen both were gone.  This is getting much worse, however, I will stay in with this to the bitter end.  HEAR THAT, TRAITORS? YOU CANNOT STOP FREE SPEECH, IT WILL PREVAIL NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO.

***Fund raising update: We are now at $265 needed by the first.  As you know, the Vatic project is a very independant media source, as evidenced by the daily harassment we receive.  We are not funded by any ads put out by major corporations like the MSM are and various foundations like Rockefeller and Ford foundation that some alternative media on the net receive and have to censor their work.  If you receive any benefit from our caring efforts, we woud appreciate any donations you can afford to give so we may continue to do that which we feel is necessary to try and save our precious Republic.  Thank you for your readership and your most welcome support for our efforts.  The donation button is off to the right of the blog near the top. 

Vatic Note:  A MUST READ SO WE NEVER FORGET WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A REAL PATRIOT AND WILLING TO DIE TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOUR NATION AND ITS PEOPLE.  What he says below is as if it was not done in 1961, rather in 2012. The enemies who are at war with us today are the same ones who killed our duly elected President.  That is when the coup took place and has been in effect ever since.  Here is a full transcript of the speech that got JFK killed.  Not to say there were not other reasons, but it was also his attempt to fulfill his promise to the American people to bring down the conspiracy to destroy America.   He actually lists what we used to be all about that was in every way the greatness of America, but alas, no longer, unless we stand and reclaim it.
In that attempt to do what he could to stop it, he fired the CIA chief,  the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff  for his approval of the Northwoods papers suggesting the false flag to fly a plane into a tall building and blame it on the Cubans at the time.  He signed an EO turning control of our currency and credit over to  the US treasury, and was drafting legislation to put us back on the gold standard, and had already issued silver certificates in the $1 bills.  All of these acts would have stopped what we see happening today.I will limit my comments except to say, I met him personally and he was everything you think he is and I would be glad to share the story of how I met him and what he did that showed he truly cared about the people and the nation.  Sometimes its in small acts that greatness is found.  Let me know in the comments section if you want to know what he did that I will never forget when I met him. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU PRINT THIS OUT, MEMORIZE IT, TEACH IT TO YOUR CHILDREN AND CARRY IT AS A BANNER AS WE FIGHT TO RECLAIM OUR NATION.   He died doing all he could FOR US, HIS PEOPLE.  We can do no less.  My bolds are in red.John F. Kennedy’s speech on secret societies and freedom of the press transcribed into text      (VN: The video can be seen at this link and is worth the listen)

Posted on by James Japan

The following is John F. Kennedy’s address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association on April 27, 1961, given exactly 939 days before he was killed on Nov. 22, 1963.

I first heard it years ago and posted the audio / sideshow of it on my other website for some time
now, but it was just the other day I felt inspired to transcribe it into text. I found only a part of this speech transcribed on
However, it also contains other parts of the speech not included in the audio-slideshow below from where I took it from.  I took the liberty to highlight any text in bold that I thought was significant to put emphasis on. (VN: mine are in Red)

“Ladies and gentlemen. 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 outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify it.

Even today, there is little value in opposing the thread of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in assuring 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’s 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 or 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. (VN:  This description tells us he not only knew their tactics already, but he knew “WHO” by this time as well.)

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. It’s mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.

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’m not asking your newspapers to support an 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 lawmaker, Solon, decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy.

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 to entertain, not to emphasis 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 crisis 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 improve the understanding of the news as well as improve 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 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.
