The president has hinted at the possibility of releasing never-before-seen documents related to the Kennedy assassination. The CIA coined the term “conspiracy theory” just after the death of Kennedy, in an effort to marginalize those who questioned the official story of what happened that day.

President Trump has indicated he will soon release what remains of the documents relevant to President Kennedy’s assassination. The document dump would include many thousands of pages that have only partially been disclosed in the past. While many such documents have been released to the public over the years, one group of undisclosed papers remains.

Only the president has the authority to release them.

While Trump has expressed a willingness to make the documents public, the White House has also made a statement saying they may not do so if government agencies advise against it. Some experts have noted that the release of these documents may be positive in that it could settle unanswered questions surrounding the event. Then again, it has also been noted that they may not contain any bombshells.

The origin of all conspiracies

The topic is controversial due to the assassination being the subject of many “conspiracy theories.” For example, many have theorized that Lee Harvey Oswald may not have acted alone.

The documents may or may not shed any light on this.

One little-known factor leading up to his death involves the nature of America’s currency. John F. Kennedy signed executive order 1111, which would have tied the value of the dollar to silver certificates. This would have diminished the power of central bankers to print fiat money at will, depriving them of trillions.

Did bankers have anything to do with JFK's death?

The term “conspiracy theory” itself stems from this event. The term was not a common part of the American lexicon prior to 1964. The term was used to ridicule those who questioned the obvious implausibility of the official narrative regarding the death of Kennedy. This is why the term “conspiracy” has a pejorative connotation today.

It is a direct consequence of a psychological operation that the CIA embarked upon over fifty years ago. Given the ubiquity of this term today, and its ability to shut down all intelligent conversation and rational discussion regarding any facts that do not align with official narratives, there can be little doubt that this has been the most effective propaganda campaign of all time. The details of all this are revealed in the book “Conspiracy Theory in America" by Lance De-Haven Smith. The documents that may soon be revealed by Trump likely will not contain any clarification on this matter.

Talk is cheap

Will Trump release the last of the documents relating to the Kennedy assassination? If so, will they reveal anything of significance?

Two things to keep in mind: politicians seldom do what they say, and if official agencies do not want the documents released, they probably won’t be. While this President has a persona that paints him as being anti-establishment, his actions have proved time and time again that he is no different than any of his predecessors.
