Today I Learned: A Few U.S. Presidents Had a Clue and Warned Us About Growing Hidden Hands of Power

What did they say, and more importantly, did anyone listen? Where are we now?

Why don't we hear powerful speeches from Presidents warning us about real shit that matters? The leaders of America have always been puppets or went forward according to a blueprint made by hidden hands. America had been a design, going back to Francis Bacon, about creating a New Atlantis. A new revolutionary way of life was being envisioned and designed, and it eventually compounded as the United State of America.

America tried out new ways of living and succeeded. America was a grand experiment. Even Eisenhower spoke about it in such a way. Despite walking into a playhouse with powerful forces acting on him, Eisenhower managed to tell us a bit about the new American experiment being developed.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of a the recent development of an immense military establishment, along with a large arms industry. He termed this new phase of America as the "new American experiment".

Chilling how right he was. From 1961 to 2016, 55 years, and we have seen what has happened in the cold war, and recently since 2001 with 9/11. The "military industrial complex" has grown even more. The USA spends more on military the next top 8 nations combined.

Eisenhower said the "potential for disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."

How do we combat against these hidden influences and powers in our lives? By being aware of them. Knowledge is power. Eisenhower stressed we all need to be alert (i.e. aware) and be knowledgeable people. That is the only defense against this rise in hidden secret power.

Eisenhower wasn't the only one to speak up against the rising power. President John F. Kennedy spoke directly to the hidden hand's and their secret powers of influence in America.

JFK came right after Eisenhower as well.

JFK spoke of the importance of truth by emphasizing intolerance towards secrecy in the state, secret societies, secret oaths and secret proceedings. Concealment holds power. The way to own information, knowledge, or truth exclusively, is to prevent others from having it. This is the power of intelligentsia, governments and secret societies throughout history. They have certain information the rest of us don't and they make decisions for everyone else based on that.

"For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies 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."

John F. Kennedy, Address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association, April 27, 1961

Well... we didn't listen carefully enough. Those powers grew without us being aware what was going on.

Kennedy may have been the last president to speak for himself, the others were visited by folks that threatened their lineage with a clear example of what will happen.
Washington may have been one, too.

And the Bay of Pigs was...

(must eat bacon now...lol)

I think you can use the term scapegoat for president now.

BOOM! Truth spoken.

Good on ya for posting this. I firmly believe he was targeted and killed for his beliefs (JFK) warning people and seeing the corruption. Period, end of story.

The "official" story/ coverup of the Investigation Papers for JFK and the whole deal surrounding his death and the "official story" - smells like, and has storylines similar to the 9/11 coverup once you start researching things, watching some movies, truth based, balanced sources, not MSM crap) , seeing the parallels, etc.

The name of that report is the Warren Commission.

A bulk release and declassification of "some" of the records will be released this coming Oct. --- 2017.

And the Pentagon in the USA "cannot account" for how many trillions of # again, oh right. Buried the next day by 9/11 demolitions.

Because that is what it was. Treason. Like gov'ts commit in #Canadastan , the USA and other places - daily.

Really good post by you!!! RS and UV for you also. // BD

I've often wondered if we should call it 'secret power'. If I'm honest, I think we might more aptly call it 'cynical power'. The idea goes like this; You are elected on a platform to put a chicken in every pot, two cars in every garage, and to keep hot shooting big wars from happening. You hire smart guys to come up with plans. All these smart guys would rather be playing golf and enjoying life. But no. They have to work out complex and difficult scenarios to keep all the dumb people from having to go to war. If it were me, I'd start to resent all those dumb people in a big way. The cynicism grows with each passing generation until you have cynical power. The power that believes it must have its carte blanche secrets because the majority of the population is simply too stupid to understand the importance of what it does. Just a somewhat drunken thought.

Many thanks for this balanced post, there are the conspiracy theories and theorists but I suspect that one man's theorist is another man's deluded fool. I do suspect that the order to do away with the Federal Reserve was a strong piece of the JFK jigsaw. The monetary supply of the US has never been properly addressed since King George III.
