JFK and Women


JFK and his family the night of his election to the Presidency

In the years since the coup d'etat that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Mainstream Media (M$M) has deluged the citizenry with propaganda designed to destroy the public perception of the man.  This propaganda started off slowly but then reached a crescendo in 1997 with the publication of the Seymour Hersh "take down" book called "The Dark Side of Camelot".  As is shown in the "book review' in the previous link, "The Dark Side of Camelot" was a stinking array of lies, disinformation, half truths and exaggerations accusing JFK of every sin in the bible.  It made out his White House Years to be comparable with the Roman court of Caligula.  The media campaign was based on the premise..."if you throw enough shit at a wall, some of it is bound to stick".  The population was left in a sad state... not knowing what to believe...their own memories of the man when he was alive?  Or the relentless, disgusting exposes... years after his death (and the deaths of many of extended family) when he could not defend himself.

In rebuttal to this propaganda, all I can offer is my own personal recollections.  I was 16 years old at the time of the assassination.  In the five or so years previous, like everyone else in western society, I had followed the meteoric rise of the Kennedy clan...because that's what it was.  Kennedy was but the shining star in a familial constellation.  He was the oldest surviving son in a large, wealthy and successful Irish Catholic American family.  His persona was inextricably melded to what was then a unique profile for a national politician.   One of the famous descriptions of him was as "the first Irish American Catholic President" (and, significantly, the last). It was only after his death that his image was "cut away" from the Kennedy clan, and Irish Catholic heritage and re-fashioned in the form of a cold-hearted politician--who used his power to gratify his insatiable needs as a profligate womanizer.

Here are my memories of him.  In the early 1960's, my own family was also a large, Irish Catholic family.  I knew John Kennedy's roots.  I knew what his mother, Rose Kennedy, was made of and how she had mothered him...because my own mother was very similar to Rose Kennedy in values and lifestyle.  I knew he had been dragged along to church every Sunday, never ate meat on Fridays, and said the Rosary frequently.  I knew these habits and traditions had formed him, like they had formed me.  I felt close to Kennedy and his family, as did all the members of my family.  We talked about their family around our dinner table...comparing the various members of his siblings to ourselves.  We had our own "shining star", a handsome, brilliant brother who went on to become a successful lawyer.

Thus, I know what John Kennedy was looking for in women.  He was looking for the values that had been drilled into him by his mother and exemplified by his sisters.  Kennedy, as a young single man, was attracted to intelligent, well educated, refined women who had the potential to be good wives and mothers.  Jacqueline Kennedy was the quintessential example of such a woman...Vassar educated, knowledgeable in the fine arts, and speaking several languages.

During World War II, Kennedy was a PT boat pilot in the south Pacific (during which war his elder brother Joseph was killed).  JFK was wounded during a heroic incident where he saved the life of one of his fellow sailors.  As a result of this incident, he suffered a serious injury to his back.  Kennedy was in constant back pain for the rest of his life.  He was forced to wear a back brace and had to sit in a special rocking chair.  Not much time or inclination for profligate behaviour.  Kennedy had attended Harvard Law School and excelled...probably not much motivation for profligate behaviour then either.

Immediately after the war, Kennedy began his political career as a congressman and then as a Senator. Throughout his public life after marriage to Jackie, Kennedy lived much of the time in a compound in Hyannisport with his young family.  He was under the constant scrutiny of his parents and his siblings thoughout his entire life...not much time or opportunity to seek dalliances.  Always in the public eye and ever watchful that he did not break any moral taboos, Kennedy presented publically as being cautious, conservative, self-controlled and self-disciplined with a good sense of humour and a diffident, self-effacing manner.  There was never a hint about womanizing behaviour associated with Kennedy during his public life.  The rumours only started after his death!

Like most people, for many decades, after the media character assassination campaign started, I didn't know what to believe, but had accepted that "they wouldn't print it if it wasn't true".  Now, with the 20/20 hindsight gleaned from decades of other media character assassination campaigns--and lies about events such as The Gulf of Tonkin Incident, The USS Liberty, the Lavon Affair, and, particularly 9/11, I see that most of what the zionist-controlled mainstream media says is packed with lies to suit the military industrial, corporatist, globalist, ziofascist  agenda.  Destroying, posthumously, the reputation of the only president who stood up to this cabal makes perfect sense to me now.

Let's look at the probability of JFK being a womanizer.  There was no evidence from his family...who would have been the first to nip that behaviour in the bud (particularly his highly religious mother Rose).  Jacqueline never breathed a word about it during her life.  Their marriage was difficult at times (they lost two children at birth) and he had to be absent from the home a lot, leaving her with two small children and and invasive in-laws.  Jackie craved more privacy and independence.  She was often uncomfortable living in the Hyannisport  compound with its fishbowl atmosphere.  I knew that Jackie did NOT like to play touch football like the rest of the Kennedys.  Yet Kennedy seemed immensely proud of Jackie and her independent public image.  When they travelled to Europe, he introduced himself to a press conference as "I am the man who accompanied Jacqueline Kennedy to Paris...and I have enjoyed it."  I believe they were in love till the end.

More to the point, who was Jack Kennedy?  He was an intellectual...not a craven hedonist.  His charm was based on the fact that he was an elegant, graceful man who did not flaunt his wealth or good looks.  Yes, he was a rock star--before there were "rock stars".  I'm sure women threw themselves at him, and then likely lied about their success in bedding him.  I'm sure his enemies tried to tempt him with "honeypots" (beautiful and available women who they then could blackmail him with).  Yet, even so, there was never a whisper of this kind of behaviour until AFTER his death.  Interestingly, several of the women he is supposed to have had reckless relationships with were Jewish.  Interesting, considering his strict Catholic upbringing.

One piece of excrement that stuck to the wall more than most of the lies--was the idea that Kennedy carried on a semi-public affair with movie actress Marilyn Monroe during the last years of his life--while he was president--and even shared her favours with his brother Robert.  This I have come to believe is most likely a heinous lie.  Kennedy and Monroe lived on opposite sides of the continent and both were constantly in the public eye for the last years of their lives.  She had relationships, and these were followed assiduously by the "movie magazines".  Like many teenagers, I read the magazines regularly in those days, so I knew that Marilyn wasn't doing very well.  She had had several  mental breakdowns and was forced to withdraw from her last movie...In photographs, she looked haggard and old beyond her years...hardly an attractive morsel for a man who was running the western world--and had recently saved it from a nuclear holocaust during the Cuban missile crisis!

One iconic public appearance that included both Kennedy and Monroe was during his visit to California after he became president.  His birthday occurred during the trip and he was attending a public celebration that included many Hollywood celebrities.  It was hosted by Frank Sinatra, as I recall.  As the high point of the evening, Marilyn came on stage and sang "Happy Birthday" to the president.  She was wearing a skin tight and virtually see-through evening gown.  My mother, who was watching TV with us, audibly "tisk tisked" in disgust at Monroe's provocative/inappropriate attire.  I am sure that Rose Kennedy would have gasped too.  I remember being particularly interested in president Kennedy's reaction.  Would he gasp?  Would he look at her knowingly and lasciviously?  Would he get up on the stage with her at his side?

No.  When the cameras zoomed in on Kennedy's reaction for all the world to see...he looked embarrassed and bemused.  He looked uncomfortable... like he wished he was somewhere else...but felt he had to get through the ordeal because, after all, "this was Hollywood".  But he responded with his usual forbearance and grace.  I think his reaction says it all.
