We did have a silver certificate note during JFK's time that could be exchanged for silver. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_11110


The last president that at least sort of cared about the United States. The above source concerning executive order 11110.

Executive Order 11110 was an effort by Kennedy to transfer power from the Federal Reserve to the United States Department of the Treasury by replacing Federal Reserve Notes with silver certificates.[17] Author Richard Belzer named the responsible parties in this theory as American "billionaires, power brokers, and bankers ... working in tandem with the CIA and other sympathetic agents of the government."[19]

Critics of the theory note that Executive Order 11110 was a technicality that only delegated existing presidential powers to the Secretary of the Treasury for administrative convenience during a period of transition.

THough, this transition was probably jsut the start of proposed legislature.

JFK was also probably killed for other reasons, such as his distaste for Israel's nuclearization and wanting to make AIPAC a foreign agent.

Interesting. I also heard he was killed maybe for wanting to withdraw troops from Vietnam. But it's probably the anti-CIA anti-Israel stuff, you're right

That too. It was a host of things that got him killed and then his brother and then other Kennedy's later on.
