From the October 2008 Idaho Observer:



"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currencies, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their prosperity until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

~President Thomas Jefferson, letter to Treasury Secretary Albert Gallatin (1802)

On June 4, 1963, President Kennedy signed Executive Order 11110 (see right). The order could have—and should have—begun the process of ending the Federal Reserve money monopoly in America. Instead, President Kennedy was assassinated and a few months later the silver certificates he ordered into circulation were removed.

One thing is for certain: Fiat money cannot compete with real money. Had President Kennedy and the silver certificates survived, the Federal Reserve would have been out of business, the perpetual wars on everything could not be financed, our people would not be drowning in consumer credit debt, our economy would be anchored to value and New Year’s, 2009 would not be the eve of our destruction. Our choice is clear: End the Fed Nov. 22, 2008, or do nothing and let the bastards do to our entire nation what they did to JFK that fateful day in Dallas 45 years ago.

John F. Kennedy v. The Federal Reserve

On June 4, 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order (EO) 11110 to compel the U.S. Treasury to issue paper certificates backed by silver held by the Treasury. The certificates directly challenged the authority of the Federal Reserve Bank to "loan" fiat (unbacked) money to the United States government at interest.

"The Christian Law Fellowship has exhaustively researched this matter through the Federal Register and Library of Congress. We can now safely conclude that this Executive Order has never been repealed, amended, or superseded by any subsequent Executive Order. In simple terms, it is still valid," wrote John Curran.

With EO 11110 (see above), President Kennedy returned to the federal government its constitutional responsibility "to coin money and regulate the Value thereof." Per EO 11110, the Treasury was ordered "[t]o issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury..."

For every ounce of silver held by the U.S. Treasury, the government could introduce new money into circulation.

According to Curran, "As a result, more than $4 billion in United States Notes [USNs] were brought into circulation in $2 and $5 denominations. The $10 and $20 United States Notes were never circulated but were being printed by the Treasury Department when Kennedy was assassinated."

"United States Notes," Curran explained, "were issued as an interest-free and debt-free currency backed by silver reserves in the U.S. Treasury. We compared a ‘Federal Reserve Note [FRN]’ issued from the private central bank of the United States (the Federal Reserve Bank a/k/a Federal Reserve System), with a ‘United States Note’ from the U.S. Treasury issued by President Kennedy’s Executive Order. They almost look alike, except one says "Federal Reserve Note" on the top while the other says "United States Note". Also, the Federal Reserve Note has a green seal and serial number while the United States Note has a red seal and serial number."

Shortly after President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, the USNs he had issued were immediately taken out of circulation (series 1958 silver certificates were also removed from circulation).

Most Americans had no idea at the time that President Kennedy’s death was tied to the issuance of silver certificates, nor did they realize that they were stolen back out of circulation soon after LBJ replaced JFK as president. People just continued using fiat FRNs as "legal tender" and are still mindlessly using them as if they were "money" today.

Had the American people understood that President Kennedy’s silver-backed USNs were real money and used them as such, demand for FRNs would have evaporated as a simple matter of economics: Trading goods and services with silver-backed USNs is an exchange of value while trading goods and services for FRNs is trading value for pieces of paper.

Think about the billions of commercial transactions that have taken place since Nov. 22, 1963. Since that time, billions of transactions have taken place with FRNs changing hands. With every exchange of goods and services for FRNs, one party holds real value and the other holds no real value. Every exchange, then, records a loss in parity. Perhaps the bill for exclusive use of FRNs (and their even more chimerical paper extensions) in immediate obligations is about $10 trillion?

Now think about how different the world would be had President Kennedy and USNs survived and America’s children grew up believing that lawful money is the only acceptable medium of commercial exchange?

President Kennedy was preceded by President Eisenhower who, in his farewell address, warned the nation of the threats posed by the emerging (congressional)/military/industrial complex. President Kennedy responded to the outgoing president’s fair warning by moving to remove the war machine’s source of funding: Federal Reserve fiat.

Because Kennedy was assassinated, because we did not understand why he was assassinated, because we hardly noticed as USNs were removed from circulation, we now live in a preplanned era of perpetual war and exist on the verge of economic collapse.

It is time to end the Fed—before it ends us.

End the

Rallies are being organized in the following "Federal Reserve" cities on Saturday, Nov. 22, 2008: Louisville, Memphis, Miami, Minneapolis, Nashville, New Orleans, New York City, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, Richmond, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.

The plan is to gather in front of Federal Reserve Bank locations in the various cities with signs and for rallyers to hand out literature intended to raise awareness as to the economic disaster that is being fomented by the Federal Reserve bankers through its dishonest money monopoly.

Go to the websites above to find out how to locate organizers in or near the cities listed above. We have a chance here because millions of people with an opinion on the subject of the "subprime mortgage crisis" and the government’s radical "buyout" response, are looking for the answers we can provide.

"There is no time to delay. We are at a prime and opportune moment for a successful, grassroots movement nationally to take action against the Federal Reserve for destroying our Republic. Join an ‘End the Fed’ group right away!" urges End the Fed organizer and Republic magazine principle Gary Franchi.

Time is, indeed, running out. We must train our activist energies where people are most concerned. Right now, people want to know what is happening to their savings, their jobs and their money.

END the FED.
