This Secret Society speech is often challenged by online trolls, but it is certainly authentic. It is posted at the official website of the JOHN F. KENNEDY PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY AND MUSEUM. (Click here for screenshot.) However this video we have here contains only excerpts from that speech, and we have read it while listening to validate for ourselves that all of the excerpts are factual.
However while all of the excerpts are factual, they were not made in the context which the presentation here suggests. Kennedy spoke of the repugnance of secret societies while arguing before the Press the need for greater government secrecy. The enemy he spoke of was Communism, and not Freemasonry or International Jewry. For all of his brilliance, JFK was a cog in the wheels of the machine, and he did not transcend the machine in order to truly understand it. If he had, he probably would not have been appealing to the Press for any assistance at all.

There are some false quotations in circulation claiming to be excerpts from this speech, and they are not. However that should not discredit the content of the remarks which are found in the speech and which actually did belong to Kennedy.
