Executive Order No. 11110
There is currently floating around the Net one theory of the Kennedy assassination based upon certain legal documents. According to this idea, Kennedy was assassinated because he was about ready to start issuing silver certificates; to prevent him from doing so, the "powers that be" had him killed. Please understand that what I offer below explaining the flaw of this argument does not mean that I am an apologist for the Fed or banking industry; it should be obvious from my site that I am not. I only offer these comments because this argument demonstrates just one of the completely erroneous arguments which is allegedly based upon the "law" but is not.
When Congress enacts a law, it often delegates authority to enforce and administer the law to some executive official, typically the President. Naturally, the President does not personally attend to such duties and must himself delegate to others within the Executive branch. The Agricultural Adjustment Act of May 12, 1933, was one of these acts and it permitted the President in §43 to issue United States Notes for the purpose of paying the bonded indebtedness of the United States and not for circulation purposes.
Via a law enacted by Congress in 1950, 64 Stat. 419, the President was authorized to delegate his statutory functions to others within the Executive branch. It provided:
The President of the United States is hereby authorized to designate and empower the head of any department or agency in the executive branch, or any official thereof who is required to be appointed by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to perform, without approval, ratification, or other action by the President (1) any function which is vested in the President by law, or (2) any function which such officer is required or authorized by law to perform only with or subject to the approval ratification, or other action of the President: * * *
Pursuant to this statutory authority, on September 19, 1951, President Truman issued Executive Order No. 10289, which delegated to the Secretary of the Treasury lots of the statutory duties of the President. This executive order provided in part as follows:
By virtue of the authority vested in me by section 1 of the act of August 8, 1950, 64 Stat. 419 (Public Law 673, 81st Congress), and as President of the United States, it is ordered as follows:1. The Secretary of the Treasury is hereby designated and empowered to perform the following described functions of the President without the approval, ratification, or other action of the President:(a) The authority vested in the President by section 1 of the act of August 1, 1914, c. 223, 38 Stat. 609, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2), (1) to rearrange, by consolidation or otherwise, the several customs-collection districts, (2) to discontinue ports of entry by abolishing the same and establishing others in their stead, and (3) to change from time to time the location of the headquarters in any customs-collection district as the needs of the service may require.(b) The authority vested in the President * * *Thereafter, this executive order listed another 8 statutory powers of the President which he was delegating to the Treasury Secretary, the substance of which is not important for this discussion. Please remember that this delegation to the Treasury Secretary was to be exercised "without the approval, ratification, or other action of the President." It should also be noted that this particular executive order did not delegate to the Treasury Secretary the authority to issue silver certificates granted to the President in the 1933 law noted above.From 1933 until 1963, the President alone possessed the statutory authority to issue silver certificates. But then on June 4, 1963, President Kennedy amended Truman's 1951 Executive Order No. 10289 by Executive Order No. 11110. This particular order read as follows:
AMENDMENT OF EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 10289AS AMENDED, RELATING TO THE PERFORMANCE OFCERTAIN FUNCTIONS AFFECTING THEDEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY
By virtue of the authority vested in me by section 301 of title 3 of the United States Code, it is ordered as follows:SECTION 1. Executive Order No. 10289 of September 19, 1951, as amended, is hereby further amended -(a) By adding at the end of paragraph 1 thereof the following subparagraph (j):(j) The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821 (b)), to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of any outstanding silver certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their redemption," and(b) By revoking subparagraphs (b) and (c) of paragraph 2 thereof.SECTION 2. The amendment made by this Order shall not affect any act done, or any right accruing or accrued or any suit or proceeding had or commenced in any civil or criminal cause prior to the date of this Order but all such liabilities shall continue and may be enforced as if said amendments had not been made.JOHN F. KENNEDYTHE WHITE HOUSE,June 4, 1963
By this executive order, the statutory authority of the President to issue silver certificates was delegated to the Treasury Secretary. In Kennedy's administration, the Treasury Secretary was Douglas Dillon, a man from a banking family and a known established "power" in the banking community. Kennedy delegated the authority to issue silver certificates to Dillon and his successors, and this power could be exercised "without the approval, ratification, or other action of the President."
The only reasonable conclusion which may be reached based upon the facts are the exact opposite of the argument made on the Net. For some 30 years, the President himself held the power to issue silver certificates. But some 5 months before his assassination, Kennedy delegated this power to Dillon, and via this order, Dillon could do as he pleased with this power. To assert that Kennedy was by Executive Order No. 11110 getting ready to issue silver certificates is contrary to the plain facts. Instead, Kennedy was surrendering this power and delegating it to the Treasury Secretary, who was someone from the banking industry.
Clearly, it appears that this EO was issued to put the power to issue silver certificates into safe hands, that of a banker. There is no substance to this theory on the Net. I cannot understand how this particular order proves that Kennedy was about to issue silver certificates. Where is the proof that Kennedy was anything other than a pawn of the banking community?
Additional Note re E.O. 11110:From Jim Ewart at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Larry:Thanks for the input re the John F. Kennedy "silver-certificate" item. As chance would have it, about two months ago I helped Ed Griffin ("Creature From Jekyll Island") write a letter to a guy who raised this issue with Ed. Ed and I came to the same conclusion as you did, that the story being circulated by some "patriots" was seriously flawed.
As you may recall, some 20 years ago a different story was making the rounds of the "patriot" community. This story said that JFK made a speech at Columbia University a couple of weeks before his death. In that speech JFK supposedly said, "I have discovered that the high office of the presidency has been used to foment a plot against the American people," and allegedly, this presentation continued with him saying that he was going to take decisive steps to stop that plot in its tracks.
JFK supposedly then ordered the US Treasury to immediately print zillions of US Notes (_not_ silver certificates) to replace all the Federal Reserve Notes then in circulation. The implication was that by replacing the Federal Reserve Notes with US Notes, the federal government would no long have to pay interest to the Fed on the face value of all the paper currency -- precisely because US Notes are "spent into circulation interest free" (echoing the late Pastor Sheldon Emery and others of his persuasion, that is, the advocates of "populism" and/or "social credit.")A few days before JFK's death, supposedly about $300 million of these US Notes were placed in circulation, and it was exactly this action by JFK that caused the bad guys, the "banksters," to arrange for JFK to be killed. However, while this story is interesting, it apparently has almost no factual basis.
One of Congressman Ron Paul's researchers was a libertarian gal with heavy economic and finance credentials, a Masters Degree in finance if I recall correctly, and many years of investment analysis for a major brokerage firm. This gal, Rita something or another, spent several months early in 1983 investigating the story for Ron Paul. She called me later that year to see if I could supply her with any supporting information.
I told her I had heard the rumor but did not have any facts to support it. She said she'd been in close touch with top-level people in the Kennedy family, and in contact with several of JFK's closest political cronies, and also in contact with top people at Columbia University. The University had no memory or other record of JFK being on that campus or in the area for any meeting of any kind within several years of the alleged appearance, and none of JFK's associates, political or personal, offered anything but negative comment on the whole tale.
This researcher (Rita D. Simone, from Arlington, Virginia, whose name, address, and phone number is still in the ZNS database) concluded that the alleged event simply did not happen.
However, some US Notes were issued in 1962 but solely to replace worn-out Federal Reserve Notes from the series of 1950 and earlier. The US Notes were used because the Treasury had already issued all of its authorized inventory of uncirculated Federal Reserve Notes, and because the Treasury could print US Notes without special prior approval from the Federal Reserve banking system.
But the US Notes were strictly an interim solution to the problem of replacing worn Federal Reserve Notes. Please recall that the next year, in 1963, the Treasury printed and began issuing Federal Reserve tokens, FRTs, the "New Federal Reserve Note" bills, the ones missing the phrases "will pay to the bearer on demand" and "and is redeemable in lawful money at the United States Treasury or at any Federal Reserve Bank."
FRTs would eventually replace _all_ then-circulating paper currency: US Notes, Federal Reserve Notes from the series of 1950 and earlier, and silver certificates. Within 10 years or so, the only paper currency circulating in the U.S. was the FRT.
The man who contacted Ed Griffin, questioning something Ed had said in "Creature from Jekyll Island," said he had heard the US Note story from an organization called "Christian" something or another. I had not heard of that entity, I had no record of it in my big database of patriotic groups, publications, and broadcasts, etc., and I had no record of any similar-sounding entity in the general area of the writer's home address.
I concluded that the "Christian" something or another "group" was reallyjust a dba of a lone individual patriot, someone who simply and innocently echoed a highly inaccurate version of the largely fictional JFK-Columbia University tale.[snip re personal matters]Here's wishing you and your fine family a very happy Thanksgiving.Also, thanks again for the analysis of the JFK "silver certificate" story.Best wishes,Jim EwartPeople should read Jim's book, Money.

The speech that got JFK killed

Let’s Get This ‘Conspiracy Theory’ Crap Cleared Up Once And For All – Roosevelt, Churchill and JF Kennedy Were Not Bullsh*tting!
Einstein, when asked “what is the most powerfulforce in the Universe?” is reputed to have answered, “Compound Interest.”Today’s mantras, “Everybody’s Lying to You” and “It’s all About Control “ and ”There is a Global Conspiracy” are quite true, but not instigated by ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ on The Internet, no, they were clearly identified by several of the last century’s greatest Statesmen, again and again, into the silence of history ‘written by the winners’.Winston Churchill“From the days of Spartacus – Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, to those of Trotsky, Bela Kun, Rosa Luxembourg, and Emma Goldman, this world wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played a definitely recognisable role in the tragedy of the French Revolution.”He was obviously not talking about Germany though history allows us to see it that way, out of context:“It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century, and now at last, this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads, and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”
What do hear about Russia in the world’s main stream media today?
John F. Kennedy – NOT talking about Bilderberg or Bohemian Grove…
Kennedy Speech Conspiracy Secret Societies | HERE | 6 Jan 2009Listen to this incredible audio recording of a speech made by JFK before the American Newspaper Publishers Association where he warns the press about the secret societies that are the real power in global affairs.
It was in the dark days of World War II that Churchill referred to the existence of a “High Cabal” that had brought about unprecedented bloodshed in human history. Churchill is also said to have remarked about the Elite: “They have transported Lenin in a sealed truck like a plague bacillus from Switzerland into Russia…” (John Coleman, The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, Global Publications 2006).
JFK,1961 “The word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically opposed to Secret societies, secret oaths and secret proceedings. 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. It depends on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice. 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, and its dissenters are silenced, not praised, no expenditure is questioned, no secret revealed… I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people.”
To find answers to who is behind the rulers of a country, you look in its jails and listen for the names that no one dares mention.President Franklin Delano Roosevelt actually did put a name to this ‘monolithicand ruthless conspiracy’ in ‘November 1933: “The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson. It may be recalled that (he)… was so enraged by the tactics of bankers that he said: “You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.” ”
Not exactly part of the public discourse today. Nor is this:On June 4, 1963, JFK ordered the printing of Treasury dollar bills instead of Federal Reserve notes (Executive Order 11110), backed by silver “Pay To The Bearer, On Demand, One Dollar in Silver”, which meant you were given the real silver that piece ofpaper was backed by in a coin containing one ounce of .999 fine silver. The coins are not in circulation, but still available as collectors pieces or investment instruments.
It is possible that the US goverment will soon republish this poster – read the bottom line…
Kennedy also ordered that once the new Silver Certificates had been printed, the Federal Reserve notes would be withdrawn, and the Treasury bills put into circulation. A few months later (November 22, 1963) he was killed in broad daylight in front of the whole world – his brains blown out. Upon assumption of power, his successor, President Lyndon Johnson, immediately reversed the order to switch back to Treasury bills…None of these statesmen other than Rooseveld put it straight onto the bankers.
SHORT HISTORY OF THE CABALSo I’ve constructed a little ‘sociology vignette’ that helps me simplify the complexities of a ‘global cabal’…In the Civilized World up until the invention of the Gutenberg movable letterpress, if it wasn’t in The (Latin) Bible it was BS: after Gutenberg, if it was written on a piece of non-Latin parchment paper, it was BS. Now If it’s on the Internet, it’s BS.Why? Gutenberg’s printing press opened the Latin Bible to anyone who could learn to read their own language.Seeds of the Internet over six hundred years ago?Priests selling indulgences, among many other things, was not “in the Bible”… result? The Protestant Reformation.Knowledge is key; information is wealth and intelligence is knowledge.There have always been the guys with the guns, and others who grow food for them and protect them. And then there are the guys who keep the farmers and soldiers happy.If the rulers are smart, they make sure that the Farmers and soldiers get to eat as much as they like and live in nice houses and pay the ‘soothsayers’ very well to keep everyone happy; with crime basically interpreted as ‘any interruption of commerce between the nation’s gardens and the Prince’s table… and his Subjects’..Sometime, but very early in history, government became formalized and eventually resolved itself into what Lord Burke called the three Chambers of the British Parliament – Lords Temporal, the guys with the guns; Lords Spiritual, the guys who keep everyone happy & in their ‘place’; and The Commons, the guys who eventually had some Magna Carta say in their own matters… if they kept their place. It took a lot of work to accomplish that.In terms of control, it’s not ‘management’ that keeps the wheels oiled, it’s ‘Benevolent Dictatorship’… there’s too much delegation in management. Let the NCOs or the line managers make on-the-ground decisions. What you tell them is their Gospel, and you only read the Gospel to the Officers or Group Managers, who aspire to the Board or General Command, speak some of the language and know some of the protocol.A well-run business will hold the producers of its wares as the first priority – they are the source of its income, and as Adam Smith observed, “all wealth is created by work”, therefore labour is extremely valuable.If the first priority is profit however, another business will treat its slaves / workers / sharecroppers better and produce a better product. This is known as competition but is only a temporary leveling factor if purchasers have any buying integrity at all, Wall-Mart monopoly notwithstanding.But if the first priority is ‘servicing’ the insatiable beast called debt, we have a situation similar to that of Rome two thousand years ago and that of England a thousand.All the while history was working itself out, something else was going on: another group of people – Churchill’s “International Conspiracy” – not a ruling class nor a spiritual class nor an agricultural class raised its head, a thousand years before the Magna Carta was signed, in the Roman Empire, and this was not a benevolent head.This was written about that ‘class’ of people, the ones I believe Churchill, Kennedy and the others were talking about:”Meanwhile a powerful host of accusers fell with sudden fury on the class which systematically increased its wealth by usury in defiance of a law passed by Caesar the Dictator defining the terms of lending money and of holding estates in Italy , a law long obsolete because the public good is sacrificed to private interest” – Tacitus, The Annals of Rome, A.D. 29.
Dante’s Seventh Level of Hell for Murderers, Suicides, Blasphemers, Sodomists & UsurersIt is of some worth here to note (parenthetically) that during this rather debilitating ‘clash of civilizations’ we are experiencing today, Islam and its Sharia Law speak the same language as Christianity on this Usury issue: any interest at all charged on money lent is usury, it is intrinsically destructive, it is fundamentally wrong and not only illegal, but a ‘sin’. The Musselmen call it ‘Al-Riba’ but it’s exactly the same thing: the abuse of trust in the rulers by the ruled.Stock Market manipulation is not the only secret in the arcane manual on “how to separate the fool from his money outside of war,” that guides the Carnival of western life.No, The Ancient Curse of Usury aka loan sharking, is still the highest form of the art of theft. And it finally achieved western ‘legitimacy’ some two hundred years ago when the Vatican’s Ambrosini became part of the cartel that controls the wests currencies and interest rates, a ‘holy’ partnership that stretched back to the early 1400′s, to the Pope’s banker at that time, one urbane and philosophical, we’re told, Cosimo de’ Medici who was, according to some historians, making a concerted effort at ‘legitimizing’ loan sharking even then through the Church.Pivotal Event: What really happened to Pope John Paul the First who promised to rectify the Church’s banking position around forty years ago, but failed to do, possibly because of his suspicious demise – or murder? – a month into his papacy?Capitalism seems to create a situation of debt for everything connect to it, & once in there, the only way out is borrowing what amounts to counterfiet money and waging wars in which the protagonists change sides at will. And since profit is the only real motive, the manufacture of commodities explicitly for destruction or abandonment ‘to the enemy’ in never ending wars, while not ‘a way out’, it has to grind to a halt when ‘the other side’ no longer really exists.The entire western world is bankrupt, with national assets foreclosed upon “unto the seventh generation” to moneylenders!All more or less recorded in modern history, but if left unread, you will continue to believe that fifty million food stamp Americans are ‘takers’ and the ‘Terrorists’, the moneylenders, will have won…
