As Trump Caves to CIA and Blocks Full Release of JFK Files, WikiLeaks Offers $100K Reward for Them

By Jack Burns

To combat the federal government’s secrecy, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is offering thousands of dollars to anyone who will turn over the missing documents deemed “too dangerous” for the American people to see. This sudden change in policy was announced on Thursday, as the government proved that it will not follow the rules it created for itself with the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act in 1992.

Caving to lobbying pressure by intelligence agencies, Trump announced he would not order the release of the full tranche of records, instead following last-minute recommendations of his national security agencies that some of those records be redacted, White House officials said. During a call with reporters, White House officials explained that while some 2,800 JFK records will be released todaythe publications of the remaining records has been postponed for 180 days to give agencies more time to figure out what they want redacted, reports ZeroHedge.

Just like that, the long-awaited and expected day came and went, and certain files related to the assassination of Kennedy were deemed too sensitive to release, even though it has been almost 54 years since he was killed in Dallas, Texas. Although federal law demanded all files pertaining to his assassination be released to the American people on Oct. 26, few will ever know what the government wants to keep secret.

However, WikiLeaks is firing back and is offering a reward of $100,000 to anyone who can produce the missing documents, with certain stipulations attached. WikiLeaks does not want information that is irrelevant, but documents that show the government was criminal, inefficient or administratively negligent in complying with its own 25-year-old federal law.

Assange noted on Twitter that the federal government “literally had 25 years“ to make sure they got the release done correctly, and they still failed. Yet, even still, with the glaring irresponsibility, the deliberate deception, and the purposeful withholding of documents, if one dares to question the official narrative, that person gets labeled a “conspiracy theorist.”

It remains to be seen if there will be any takers of Assange’s offer to enrich the life of a leaker, but the money is out there nonetheless and may be limitless depending on how many documents there are to be handed over to the world’s most notorious whistleblower organization.

Assange implied Kennedy was killed by the CIA—a theory long held by many—when he tweeted JFK’s own comments regarding the spy agency, which is literally accountable to no one but themselves.

“I will splinter the CIA into a thousand piece and scatter it into the winds,” Kennedy said.

The president was committed to getting rid of the clandestine organization, which has been responsible for overthrowing a number of foreign leaders, and establishing the current U.S. foreign policy that seems to be involved in a never-ending cycle of war.

WikiLeaks continued its scathing criticisms of the government’s decision to withhold the truth from the American people:

The answer to the question of what could possibly be so important to national security that the federal government would break its own laws, may never be revealed. It is obvious to anyone who can look objectively at the release that the government has no intention of releasing all of the documents.

For loyalists, those committed to believing the official government’s narrative at all costs, any document the government is withholding is impertinent to the facts in the case. “Oswald did it. My government told me that when I was in grade school, and that’s all I need to know,” might be the self-talk that runs through their minds.

To the rest of us, it is proof our government’s laws apply to everyone but themselves. Not only will they hide documents from their own people for 54 years, but even when they promise they will come clean and let go of all they have been holding onto, they lie and find a way to get out of it for “national security” purposes.

It remains to be seen whether someone within the government will set the record straight by releasing the documents to WikiLeaks and finally letting the American people see the complete picture of what happened on that November day in 1963.

  1. IF there is any person who serves within our government that still supports the US Constitution and keeps the Oath as is required, they MUST produce the documents. If there is not, then do not be surprised to find that you (generic “you”) will be found guilty of treason and *terrorism against the Amerian people.

    Treason – Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States provides: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
    The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.”

    The three key elements that are required for an offense to constitute treason:
    – an obligation of allegiance to the legal order,
    – intent to go against that legal order,
    — and then action/inaction to violate that obligation.

    It is the DUTY of all who serve within those agencies that they do NOT allow the domestic enemies/traitors above them continue to destroy our nation from within, they MUST keep their Oath to the US Constitution so that those who are working AGAINST our nation (and what they are allowed to do is in writing within that supreme constract) can be charged and PROSECUTED for their crimes against the USA and the American people. Consider that those that SERVE WITHIN our governments are ALL, at every level, Oath bound to the US Constitution, NOT to any person, office, agency, group, etc; and that breaking that Oath, going against the US Constitution (those that serves within our governments supreme CONTRACT above any others) is two (2) felonies (at least – breaking Oath, US Constitution), PLUS Perjury “We the people…” should be pressing charges against those who SERVE WITHIN our governments. They are NOT delegated the authority to hide anything from us, they are REQUIRED to be open, to NOT lie, etc while PROTECTING the people’s privacy, freedom, natural rights – all is in writing in that supreme contract. ALL those that serve and “just follow orders” and “just do their jobs” are assisting, implementing the destruction of our LEGITIMATE government – treason and *terrorism. The choice is yours, treason or defend your nation.

    *28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    John Adams: “Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right… and a desire to know; but besides this, they have a right, and indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean of the characters AND CONDUCT of their rulers.” (A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law (1765)) (caps mine)

    President Andrew Johnson: “Outside of the Constitution we have no legal authority more than private
    citizens, and within it we have only so much as that instrument gives us. This broad principle limits all our functions and applies to all subjects.”

    Color of law. The appearance or semblance, without the substance, of legal right. Misuse of power, possessed by virtue of state law and made possible only because wrongdoer is clothed with authority of state, is action taken under “color of law.” Black’s Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition, page 241.

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

    Mark Twain: “For in a Republic, who is “the country?” Is it the Government which is for the moment in the saddle? Why, the Government is merely a servant – merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn’t. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.”

    When you (generic “you”) took the governmental position you occupy within “intelligence” did you take it to DEFEND your nation or to DESTROY it? KEEP YOUR OATH!

    In times of crisis presidents often lay claim to extraordinary powers to preserve the nation. Such emergency
    powers are neither granted expressly to the president nor delegated to Congress by the Constitution. Instead, they are judged by the governmental “legasl” team to reside purely in the need for leaders to protect national sovereignty and domestic order. The mandate in Article II that the president “PRESERVE, PROTECT, AND DEFEND” the US Constitution and uphold its provisions is considered (by those who want those powers) to contain implicitly the notion of emergency powers. Yet that cannot be true since they are required to “PRESERVE”, not only “protect and defend” the US Constitution. In actuality all US Presidents are held to a higher standard then everyone else as they are the ones charges with implementing the “laws of the land” – all that are IN Pursuance thereof the US Constitution. The wording of the Presidential Oath was established in the Constitution in Article II, Section 1, Clause 8.

    ‘Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”’

    Notice that the Framers placed the presidential Oath of Office after the beginning clauses which set forth the organization of the executive department, and before the ending clauses that specify the contours of the President’s assigned power. The President is required to take the oath after he assumes the office but
    before he can lawfully execute it. The location and phrasing of the Oath of Office Clause strongly suggest that it is not empowering, but that it is limiting – the clause limits how the President’s “executive power” is to be exercised.

    Both the state and the federal governments get their powers from the people. There is an important rule of constitutional law called the canon of antisuperfluity (or canon against surplusage), which despite its long name, means simply that every single word of the Constitution, or lesser laws, should be given legal effect.

    Daniel Webster: “We may be tossed upon an ocean where we can see no land – nor, perhaps, the sun or stars. But there is a chart and a compass for us to study, to consult, and to obey. That chart is the Constitution.”

    Daniel Webster: “Is the Constitution worth preserving?” He said, “Then guard it as you would the very seat of your life. Guard it not only against the open blows of violence but also against that spirit of change.”

    James Madison: “If our nation is ever taken over, it will be taken over from within.” He knew that there was always a possibility that: “men of factious tempers, of local prejudices, or of sinister designs, may, by intrigue, by corruption, or by other means, first obtain the [votes], and then betray the interests, of the people” so he recommended that the people always watch those that serve within our governments closely and hold them accountable for their actions.

    During the ratification debates, Archibald Maclaine, North Carolina not only said that we “should disregard” unconstitutional acts, but that we should “punish them for the attempt.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “Time indeed changes manners and notions, and so far we must expect institutions to bend to them. But time produces also corruption of principles, and against this it is the duty of good citizens to be ever on the watch, and if the gangrene is to prevail at last, let the day be kept off as long as possible.”

    Willi Münzenberg, Propagandist for the Communist Party of Germany, about the move of the Frankfurt School to the Columbia University in the United States about 1933: “We will make America stink. Only then, after we have corrupted all its values and made life base, can we impose the dictatorship of the proletariat.”

  2. The show must go on and it’s one of the worst soap operas ever!

    Who still believes Trump and Assange are the good guys? Trump repeatedly goes back on his word, moves to sell off US infrastructure, and introduced geoengineering for “testing”. Assange rudely attacks 9/11 Truth saying he is “annoyed” by false conspiracies such as 9/11 – and we’re supposed to think these two will come clean with JFK’s assassination. All they would have to do is legitimize the brilliant research already in the public domain – for 9/11 too.

  3. More Donald Trump flip-flopping. Why should this surprise us now? Good for Juilan Assange and Wilileaks!! Maybe that bet will…pay off as tainted Donald has seemed to…cave…once again to the deep state.
