KENNEDY, Jr. TRUMPS THE FED’S NEW DIGITAL CURRENCY April 11, 2023 Rob Lauer Political Reporter In 1956, President John F. Kennedy wrote a famous book called Profiles in Courage. Profiles in Courage was a collection of short biographies describing acts of bravery and integrity by eight United States senators. The book profiled senators who defied the opinions of their party and constituents to do what they felt was right and suffered severe criticism and losses in popularity because of their actions. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., an environmental lawyer and VAX critic, just announced he is running for president, an act of courage in itself considering the dark forces within our government certainly helped kill his uncle and father, according to new JFK assassination documents released in 2017 by then President Trump. Kennedy is going after the center of power right out of the gate. Kennedy, who is running as a Democrat, slammed the Federal Reserve’s new planned digital currency as an assault on our liberty. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., crushed the new federal currency in his first statement as a candidate for president. The Fed just announced it will introduce its ‘Fednow’ Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) in July,” CBDCs grease the slippery slope to financial slavery and political tyranny. “While cash transactions are anonymous, a CBDC will allow the government to surveil all our private financial affairs. The central bank will have the power to enforce dollar limits on our transactions, restricting where you can send money, where you can spend it, and when money expires. A CBDC tied to a digital ID and social credit score will allow the government to freeze your assets or limit your spending to approved vendors if you fail to comply with arbitrary diktats, i.e. vaccine mandates.” We should not be blind to the obvious danger that this is the first step in banning and seizing bitcoin as the Treasury did with gold 90 years ago today, in 1933. “Watch as governments, which never let a good crisis go to waste, use COVID-19 and the banking crisis to usher in a new wave of CBDCs as a safe haven from germ-laden paper currencies or as protection against bank runs,” Florida Governor Ron Desantis proposed in March outlawing the use of CBDCs as money in his state. So far, Trump has been mum on the issue. But in 2019, Jared Kushner advocated for a U.S. digital dollar, according to a 250-page dump of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s crypto-related e-mail correspondence from his four years in the job.
