Of course, the fact that both JFK and Lincoln met the the same end is a mere coincidence.
On June 4, 1963, a little known attempt was made to strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest. On that day President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order No. 11110 that returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the Federal Reserve. Mr. Kennedy’s order gave the Treasury the power “to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury.” This meant that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury’s vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation. In all, Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 billion in U.S. notes into circulation. The ramifications of this bill are enormous.
After Mr. Kennedy was assassinated just five months later, no more silver certificates were issued.
It has been speculated many times that Lincoln’s death was connected with the fact that such a monetary policy as he was proposing, if pursued effectively, would have signalled the end of banking and money power in the United States, and very rapidly everywhere throughout the developing world. Once that one government was seen to be capable of supplying its nations monetary needs, others would certainly have followed. The power and profit which national debts and widespread private industrial debts provided to the world’s most-shadowy and powerful elite – bankers and financiers – would have soon vanished.” Pres. Abraham Lincoln’s Monetary Policy (1865)
