John F. Kennedy

Secret Service Speech


Background information

Background information

  • John Fitzgerald Kennedy, often referred to by his initials JFK, was the 35th President of the United States, serving from 1961 until his death in 1963.

  • After military service as commander of the Motor Torpedo Boats PT-109 and PT-59 during World War II in the South Pacific, Kennedy represented Massachusetts' 11th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1947 to 1953 as a Democrat. Thereafter, he served in the U.S. Senate from 1953 until 1960. Kennedy defeated Vice President and Republican candidate Richard Nixon in the 1960 U.S. presidential election. At 43 years of age, he is the youngest to have been elected to the office, the second-youngest President, and the first person born in the 20th century to serve as president. A Catholic, Kennedy is the only non-Protestant president, and is the only president to have won a Pulitzer Prize.[4] Events during his presidency included the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the building of the Berlin Wall, the Space Race, the African-American Civil Rights Movement, and early stages of the Vietnam War.

  • Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas. Lee Harvey Oswald was the murderer.

Soapstone subject

Soapstone- subject

  • The subject This was in the wake of the failed Bay of Pigs disaster, which Kennedy blamed, rightly so, on the CIA. He was talking to the press about their cooperation with the CIA, if you read between the lines. Had they helped expose the plot before it happened, it would likely not have been able to go forward, and many lives needlessly lost would have been saved.

  • How Kennedy used logical appeal is he talks about his citizens doing their good citizen duties.


Powerful lines

Powerful lines

  • my purpose here tonight is not to deliver the usual assault on the so-called one party press.

  • On the contrary, in recent months I have rarely heard any complaints about political bias in the press except from a few Republicans.
