Extra Large Wednesday!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 1:14 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the gray, cool, misting, soon to be Nor’easter blasted island of Nantucket! Great to be back with you on this Twenty-First Day of March, 2018!  A gloomy Wednesday High Noon moment, anticipating the fourth aforementioned storm this month; hitting the region momentarily, so once again,

…hang on to your hats!

On April 27th, 1961, our last real U.S. president, John F. Kennedy, gave an address to the American Newspaper Publishers Association at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.  Never knowing how profoundly powerful it was then, moreover, how significant, prophetic, poignant, precise and relative it is to today’s “America”, one that seems ever on the verge of collapse due to the very nature of content within this brilliant oration, Jack Kennedy’s words ring truer today than they did way back when…

Nearly sixty years later, the ‘press’ has been hijacked by this secretive, satanic shadow, looming larger by the day. Secret shadow plutocrats ruling on high, fooling the masses that they still live in a Republic.  How sadly tragic.  So for all you secret, compartmentalized, government/corporate sell outs,

this one is for YOU!

“Have a extra large Wednesday day folks!”

“The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society. We are as a people, inherently and historically, opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago, that the dangers and excesses of unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts, far outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society, by imitating it’s arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation, if our traditions don’t survive with it. And there is a greater danger that announced need for increased security will be seized by those anxious to expand it’s meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I don’t intend to permit, to the extent it’s in my control. And no official of my administration, whether his rank high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up mistakes, or to withhold from the press and public the facts they deserve to know. For we are opposed, around the world, by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy, that relies primarily on covet means for expanding it’s sphere of influence. On infiltration instead of invasion. On subversion instead of elections. On intimidation instead of free choice. On guerrillas at night, instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources in the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine, that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. It’s preparations are concealed, not published. It’s mistakes are buried, not headlined, it’s dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret 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 am not asking for your papers to support an administration, but I am asking for your help for 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 could not only stifle controversy among your readers, I welcome it. This administration intends to be candid about it’s errors. For as a wise man once said, ‘…an error doesn’t become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.’ We intend to take full responsibility for our errors and expect you to point them out when we miss them. Without debate, without criticism, no administration or country can succeed, and no Republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law maker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press is protected by the First Amendment, the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution. Not primarily to amuse and entertain. Not to emphasize the trivial and sentimental. Not to simply give the public what it wants, but to inform, arouse, reflect. To state the dangers and opportunities, to indicate our crises 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 the understanding of the news, as well as improved transmission. And it means, finally, government at all levels, must meet it’s 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.”

~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

35th President of the United States of America
