Technical Issues

Problems listening to podcasts:

Some of our listeners have problems listening to our podcasts on the website players. Commonly, the player will play for a few minutes and then restart at the same point, never getting past a certain length of time.

This may be caused for any one of several reasons, such as a slow internet connection, a weak link somewhere between our servers and those belonging to the listener's ISP, or the anti-virus or firewall software on the listener's computer. See this article at the computerhope.com website for more information: Why does my download stop before it is finished?

Solution:

To resolve this issue, do not play our podcasts from the front page of the website or from the Podcasts page.

Instead, simply click the title for the podcast, which appears above the player. Once you are on the page for that particular podcast, the program you want to listen to will preload, and the program duration should appear in the player (for example, 1:30:25 rather than 00:00).

Once the program duration appears in the player, it is already downloaded to your computer and it should play uninterrupted.

Caveats:

Before playing another podcast, however, clear your browser cache (sometimes called "temporary internet files"). Often, browser cache is the reason why podcasts seem to get "stuck" at one place and restart from the beginning.

If these solutions do not work, you may have to download our podcasts and play them in a media player on your computer, rather than using the website players. You may download podcasts by right-clicking the file name found beneath the player, and choosing "save link as" or "save target as" on the pop-up menu.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy's Secret Society Speech

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.

Listen to the full speech here: The President and the Press - John F. Kennedy at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York City on April 27, 1961

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.
