So, I did a search for that Kennedy quote
and all the sites I find it on are sort of conspiracy oriented. Did JFK really say that and if so, what was the context and the occasion? Was it in a public speech? If yes, when/where?

1. Well some of the sites that have this quote are simply quote sites.
No one I can find has the ability to offer a place where he said these particular words.

However, he also said:
"The high office of President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American's freedom, and before I leave office I must inform the citizen of his plight. We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence." - John F. Kennedy at Columbia University, 1963

Which makes it seem that we have the first quote I used being an abbreviated version of this longer quote.

2. That was the height of the cold war
very probably he was talking about "the threat of communism". It's very ominous sounding though. I heard his speech to the media where he starts out talking about 'secret societies'. :shrug:

I think your first quote is actually fabricated and not really from JFK. I was curious and did a bit of research. I don't think it's credible.

3. The quote that I was looking for was this one -
JFK quote: "All problems, depressions, wars, disasters, assassinations, all of them were planned, instigated, and implemented by the International Bankers and their attempt to establish a central bank in every country in the world, which they have now done, thanks to corrupt politicians who have been bought and paid for. This is all you need to know about the history of the world."

4. I disagree.

That doesn't seem at all to be about the "threat" of Communism. And I would certainly want to read the context.

JFK also had the Treasury issue US currency. This happened shortly before he was assassinated, and I think it was the first thing Johnson did, to undo that executive order.

I had a silver certificate when I was about 10 years old. I'm sorry I don't still have it. I didn't understand its significance then.

Much of what JFK did.

Including the Executive Order that he wrote and signed into law.

Which is still part of the law of the land.

From The Final Call, Vol. 15, No.6, On January 17, 1996

On June 4, 1963, a little known attempt was made to strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest. On that day President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order No. 11110 that returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the Federal Reserve. Mr. Kennedy's order gave the Treasury the power "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury." This meant that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury's vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation. In all, Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 billion in U.S. notes into circulation. The ramifications of this bill are enormous.

With the stroke of a pen, Mr. Kennedy was on his way to putting the Federal Reserve Bank of New York out of business. If enough of these silver certificats were to come into circulation they would have eliminated the demand for Federal Reserve notes. This is because the silver certificates are backed by silver and the Federal Reserve notes are not backed by anything. Executive Order 11110 could have prevented the national debt from reaching its current level, because it would have given the gevernment the ability to repay its debt without going to the Federal Reserve and being charged interest in order to create the new money. Executive Order 11110 gave the U.S. the ability to create its own money backed by silver.
