The Last Two Honest US
They Actually Cared Enough to Try and Warn 'We the

1961: Two Dire Presidential Warnings - Only 100 Days Apart
Honesty is a subjective political topic, but
these two men exceeded where others failed miserably.
As someone who was born in the United States and has lived 60+ years here, I can
say with conviction that the last two decent human beings to serve as US
President were John F Kennedy and Dwight D. Eisenhower. I shall
explain why in just a moment.
I will say first off, it is heartening in this day and age of politically blind
partisanship that we at least have one representative from each political party.
God help me if I named two from one party and not the other, because politics
today do not serve our country, they serve the party. It has been this way for
some time, by design, but it has never been so prevalent as it is today.
Politics have now divided the US like never before. Both the Democrat and
Republican parties have fomented hatred for the other on historic levels, very
much similar to the last engineered divide we had in this country, between
Yankees and Confederates.
The Republican vs. Democrat mentality now divides us. The vitriol that exists
today among Democrats and Republicans is waaaay out of line - once again - by
Most don't know, but some do, that the major two political parties (and our
media) were infiltrated
and taken over long ago by the CFR, an
institution that is literally the poster-child epitome of Kennedy's national
warning to all. (Do a little digging into this group and be intrigued, as well
as its overseas kissing cousin, the Royal Institute of International Affairs,
As such, the two primary US political parties have become (unknowingly for many) the
Achilles' heal of the US, and they are undeniably not our strength because they
no longer serve the best interest of our country or "we the people."
undeniably serve the best interest of the party, and most especially, those who
control them. Those that miss this are more than likely still politically asleep
and/or perhaps already deeply entrenched in either party .
What many don't understand is that the views held popular today over most social issues were
fomented and deliberately engineered to specifically create a divide among us. The obvious
reason being, it's simply much easier to control 320-million people if you can
divide them into two competing factions.
Check and checkmate.
There were two presidents, however, Eisenhower and Kennedy, who each had the integrity to say
something about where society was going in the very early 60s. The ironic thing
is, both gave their speeches only 100 days apart, just a little over three months
time, yet there was no connection made by the American press to the warning speeches from
both Eisenhower and Kennedy at that time.
That is very odd indeed. If anything, it is a most glaring and damning testament
to the extent of news control in the early 60s.
Eisenhower was a five-star general, as well as a US President, so the fact that
he, of all people, was warning Americans about an overreach of the military
establishment should have been of epic concern to someone in the press. Watch
the video and notice the nervousness that Eisenhower seems to show as he speaks.
His eyes dart left and right of the television camera, as if he is concerned
about possibly being interrupted. The speech is now historic and has been
championed for years by the antiwar movement, but was largely ignored by the greater
The Kennedy speech was also quite extraordinary, in more ways than one. First
and foremost being the fact that it followed Ike's speech by only 100 days. The
second point being that Kennedy strategically targeted a specific audience for
his speech, the American Newspaper Publishers Association at the
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.
Note: Kennedy is reported to also have made a speech about Cuba to the
American Society of Newspaper Editors just one week earlier, on April 20,
Kennedy was very direct in talking about the threat of secret societies
operating behind the scenes and he was also direct in asking for help from the
American press. Unfortunately it never came, as Kennedy was murdered in broad
daylight just two years later, November 22, 1963.
We have arguably not had a President from either party since who has been
directly honest with the American people. Some might myopically point to Ronald
Reagan, but they would be tragically remiss in recognizing his connection to
Bohemian Grove, the Iran-Contra affair, as well as the Franklin cover-up, the
latter involving pedophilia in the White House during his administration. Others
might naively point to Barack Obama, but they too would be missing all that he
did to further the goals of the uber-wealthy during his administration.
And please, don't anyone dare mention either Bush or Clinton. For a great
many Americans, these two political families were arguably the absolute very worst of all.
Many would like to see them tried and imprisoned for treason.
The fact is, since 9/11, there has been no change in policy, from a
Republican administration to a Democrat administration. There has only been a
continual erosion of rights for the lower and middle classes, while the upper
class has had the privileges of life extended further, with tax break after tax
break, from both political parties.
In lock-step, television news has been blurred far beyond the reporting of
actual necessary information, into nothing more than an entertainment and
disinformation medium. It is all about news control these days. They
would rather have you talking about celebrity news or some daily societal
trauma, instead of what is actually going on behind the scenes to take over the
We are indeed in very hard times.
If you ever want to juxtapose today with yesterday, just look back to a day when
our presidents were honest and not part of the plan for a new world order (run
by the uber-wealthy). Look no further than 1961, because at that time we had two men, both
opposing political parties, who recognized that something was terribly wrong in the
Let it be noted for the record, we have had TWO United States presidents
who tried to tell us the truth - 100 days apart from each other -
yet we have not had one single president since who has truly leveled with the
American people like Eisenhower and Kennedy did.
Once again, thank God that Eisenhower and Kennedy were from opposing parties, if
only to show that truth should not be partisan, as FOX News or MSNBC
might have you think.
Sadly enough, this is not at all the world in which we live today.
As history painfully reminds us...
Richard Nixon told us, "I'm no crook."
George HW Bush said, "Read my lips, no new taxes."
Bill Clinton told us, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."
We could go on and on all day about US presidents since Ike and JFK. The fact of
the matter is, we have had none like them ever since.
If only we had a US president willing to admit what we the people can
A great many Americans feel that this country died at Dealey Plaza in 1963. I
would be hard pressed to offer a contrarian argument to that opinion.
The bottom line is, there is still hope for America, if we can return to a time
when our presidents actually thought about we the people first, instead of their
political party or the overly wealthy new world order powers that be.
We the people anxiously await another such a leader, like Ike or JFK.
Give us another president with the integrity to tell us the honest truth.
