TABACCO: Any website called “The Anti Press” cannot possibly be ALL BAD!
Dedicated to the defence of the truth in an age of media control.

Here are some JFK quotes that you’ve likely never heard. I would ask the question – when will we ever hear a President utter such words again?
a warning to the American people not to fall into the same trap as the Soviets, not to see only a distorted and desperate view of the other side, not to see conflict as inevitable, accommodation as impossible and communication as nothing more than an exchange of threats.
Commencement Address American University, Washington, Monday, June 10, 1963
Let us call a truce to terror. Let us invoke the blessings of peace. And as we build an international capacity to keep peace, let us join in dismantling the national capacity to wage war.
September 25, 1961
Our primary long-range interest in Geneva, however, is general and complete disarmament — designed to take place by stages, permitting parallel political developments to build the new institutions of peace, which would take the place of arms.
June 10, 1963
It is therefore our intention to challenge the Soviet Union, not to an arms race, but to a peace race- -to advance together step by step, stage by stage, until general and complete disarmament has been achieved. We invite them now to go beyond agreement in principle to reach agreement on actual plans.
Address Before the General Assembly of the United Nations. September 25, 1961
but this administration has failed to recognize, has failed to recognize that in these changing times, with a revolution of rising expectation sweeping the globe, the United States has lost its image as a new, strong, vital, revolutionary society.
University of Illinois Campus, October 24th, 1960
I believe in an America… where no public official either requests or accepts instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source
Address to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association, September 12, 1960
If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich
Inaugural Address of John F. Kennedy FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 1961
In this serious hour in our Nation’s history when we are confronted with grave crises in Berlin and Southeast Asia, when we are devoting our energies to economic recovery and stability, when we are asking reservists to leave their homes and their families for months on end and servicemen to risk their lives–and four were killed in the last two days in Viet Nam and asking union members to hold down their wage requests at a time when restraint and sacrifice are being asked of every citizen, the American people will find it hard, as I do, to accept a situation in which a tiny handful of steel executives whose pursuit of private power and profit exceeds their sense of public responsibility can show such utter contempt for the interests of 185 million Americans.
News Conference April 11, 1962
In short, at a time when they could be exploring how more efficiency and better prices could be obtained… a few gigantic corporations have decided to increase prices in ruthless disregard of their public responsibilities.
April 11, 1962
Harry Truman once said there are 14 or 15 million Americans who have the resources to have representatives in Washington to protect their interests, and that the interests of the great mass of other people, the hundred and fifty or sixty million, is the responsibility of the President of the United States. And I propose to fulfill it.
Atlantic City at the Convention of the United Auto Workers. May 8th, 1962
I realize that there are some businessmen who feel only they want to be left alone, that Government and politics are none of their affairs, that the balance sheet and profit rate of their own corporation are of more importance than the worldwide balance of power or the Nationwide rate of unemployment. But I hope it is not rushing the season to recall to you the passage from Dickens’ “Christmas Carol” in which Ebenezer Scrooge is terrified by the ghosts of his former partner, Jacob Marley, and Scrooge, appalled by Marley’s story of ceaseless wandering, cries out, “But you were always a good man of business, Jacob.” And the ghost of Marley, his legs bound by a chain of ledger books and cash boxes, replied, “Business? Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business. Charity, mercy, forbearance and benevolence were all my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!”
Members and guests of the Florida State Chamber of Commerce, whether we work in the White House or the State House or in a house of industry or commerce, mankind is our business. And if we work in harmony, if we understand the problems of each other and the responsibilities that each of us bears, then surely the business of mankind will prosper. And your children and mine will move ahead in a securer world, and one in which there is opportunity for them all.
Florida Chamber of Commerce, November 18th, 1963
The inspiration for these quotes came from a documentary entitled Evidence of Revision. It’s a series of five videos, each about an hour and a half long that you can find on Google Video. I would highly recommend finding the time to watch it. Once you do – you’ll be left with some strong doubt as to who killed this man. More significant to the here and now – you’ll realize that the completion of a Presidential Commission of inquiry does not mean that the public is in possession of the truth – I’m no 9/11 conspiracy theorist – but that doesn’t mean I have to consider the commissions report to be anything more than toilet paper.
Labels: JFK quotes
Tabacco particularly appreciates the following quote:
And last, but not least, a prescient quote from a great President and a man of high Public Ethics, still missed by those, who seek moral leadership in government but find it rarely:
TABACCO: Those, who oppose the Common Man, generally pick apart the private persona in an effort to undermine a Public Figure, who does anything for We The People without genuflecting to the Rich 100% of the time.
They denigrated and murdered Martin Luther King, Joan of Arc and Jack Kennedy. They also denigrated and murdered Jesus Christ, who said, “Let him, who is without sin, cast the first stone!”
When we elect a President, we elect a Politician to lead the Nation – all the Citizens of the Nation, not a husband or a Pope! I much prefer a President with Public Morality and Private Immorality rather than a President with Private Morality and Public Immorality. – Tabacco
Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.
Tabacco is not a blogger, who thinks; I am a Thinker, who blogs. Speaking Truth to Power!
In 1981′s ‘Body Heat’, Kathleen Turner said, “Knowledge is power”.
