    Exclamation JFK: 'Silver' Executive Order 11110 nullified by Reagan's E.O.: 12608

    Executive Order 11110


    Executive Order 11110 was issued by President John F. Kennedy on June 4, 1963.

    This executive order allowed the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury to issue silver certificates against silver bullion based on authority delegated by the President to the Secretary under the Thomas Amendment to the Agricultural Adjustment Act.

    The Order was for the Treasury to issue silver certificates against all silver held by the government which did not already have certificates against it. The Order was needed due to the passage of Public Law 88-36 which repealed the Silver Purchase Act and other related monetary measures. One result was that after the repeals, only the President could issue new silver certificates. The Federal Reserve System could replace the certificates, but only in larger denominations. The thrust of the Order returned the authority to issue new silver certificates (and specify denominations) back to the U.S. Treasury. This allowed for the Federal Reserve System to distribute and exchange currency at lower denominations that met the growing economic need. The authoritative basis for the Order was nullified in 1982 with the passage of Public Law 97-258.

    The Order was never directly reversed. However, Section 1(j) of Executive Order 10289, which was added by Section 1(a) of Executive Order 11110, was revoked when Ronald Reagan signed Executive Order 12608 in 1987

    “There was a third point, however, which everyone seemed to overlook. The Executive Order [11110] did not instruct the Treasury to issue Silver Certificates. It merely authorized it to do so if the occasion should arise. The occasion never arose. The last issuance of Silver Certificates was in 1957, and that was six years before the Kennedy executive order. In 1987, the order [11110] was rescinded by Executive Order [EO] 12608 signed by President Reagan.”

    Interestingly, when we check the archives as to what exactly EO 12608 did rescind – we learn that it DID NOT DIRECTLY RESCIND EO 11110 but amended EO 10289. Only since the portion of EO 11110 relating to silver was/became - Paragraph 1[j] of EO 10289 (and EO 10289 1[j] WAS rescinded) – the Treasury’s right to issue silver backed notes was rescinded.

    A VERY curious and I would suggest brazenly sneaky way of “rescinding” an EO without even mentioning the relevant [cancelled] EO by its number!!



    Rules for enacting EO’s have been in place since June 19, 1962. These rules [Section 2 a of EO 11030] stipulate,

    A proposed Executive order or proclamation shall first be submitted, with seven copies thereof, to the Director of the Bureau of the Budget, together with a letter, signed by the head or other properly authorized officer of the originating Federal agency, explaining the nature, purpose, background, and effect of the proposed Executive order or proclamation and its relationship, if any, to pertinent laws and other Executive orders or proclamations.

    The rules are clear – and they were not followed.

    Isn’t it strange that rules – relating to who has authority to coin money - were not followed with the passage of EO 12608? Strange that issues relating to OUR money, HOW it’s created and adherence to LAWS in this regard get overlooked.

    Curiously that EO 11110 was insignificant because it “ONLY AUTHORIZED” the Treasury to produce constitutionally sound money instead of INSTRUCTING it to do so. If it was insignificant, I ask the question again; why EO 12608 DID’NT EXPLICITLY and LAWFULLY STATE that it was rescinding EO 11110?

    It does not.

    Amazingly, this is presented as “evidence” dispelling the notion that President Kennedy’s demise had “anything to do with” this act? Doesn’t this omission become even odder when one considers that three prior assassinated Presidents were clearly anti usury and/or sound money advocates? How could a monetary historian “skate over” this fact with nary a mention?

    Where I come from one-thousand-batting-averages [4 for 4] are never referred to as “flukes” and more likely to be generalized as “certainties” - but it seems the “devil is always in the details”.

    No wonder a cynic [or a conspiracy theorist] might argue that all the Bankers have to do to keep their power is to get rid of the few politicians who are honestly working for a reform in our economic system, to keep the people at large ignorant and controlled.

    One thing is abundantly clear - the population at large must be educated on the Federal Reserve, and then unite together to put pressure on the Government to get the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 repealed. Otherwise, it will spell disaster for the United States along with the rest of the free world.

    So you aren't completely absorbed by the dark side. JFK was a good president, in my humble opinion. This is one of the reasons.

    I just read the facts and post, which indicate a concise synopsis that... Reagan's E.O. 12608 (1987) amended E.O. 10289 (1951), nullifying Kennedy's 11110 (1963).

    AnyHoooooo... my opinion: Presidents should not be able to Amend Previous Presidential Executive Orders... they should go to congress with an Open Public Vote on them to Nullify, Resind, and Modify/Amend.

    I DO like the link and dialog with this excerpt, which is so RON PAULISH:

    EG: "Just because they do not understand the fraud and theft perpetrated by the Fed does not make them stupid or “unthinking.” It is just that they have never been exposed to the whole story about money. Our job is to educate them and convert them to a correct understanding."
