    Famous weapons used in assassinations and attempted assassinations often become lodged in pop culture lore. Firearms like the Carcano rifle used to kill John F. Kennedy or the pocket Derringer that shot and killed Abraham Lincoln are well-known, infamous, and can be identified by almost anyone. But many other assassination weapons arenít especially familiar. For example, the pistol that started World War I might be the most famous individual firearm in history, yet almost nobody knows what it is. Likewise, the rifle that felled Martin Luther King Jr. is a common hunting rifle with millions of copies sold Ė but...

    Itís an ancient story: An innocent idealist sets out to change the world and in the process becomes what he hates most. ďHe who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster,Ē Friedrich Nietzsche advised. Thatís probably the best spin one can put on Sidney Blumenthal, the longtime Hillary Rodham Clinton aide and confidant. But it would be just that ó spin ó given that Blumenthal was never an idealist, never mind an innocent. He has remained the same man he was in 1976, when he co-edited Government by Gunplay: Assassination Conspiracy Theories from...

    The former governor of Tokyo reportedly made a shocking accusation in a recent interview. Speaking to the Shukan Post, a Japanese tabloid, Shintaro Ishihara claimed that former President Barack Obama ordered the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to assassinate him, the Tokyo Reporter wrote Wednesday. Ishihara is said to have claimed that the U.S. should off North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un the way the Obama administration tried to off him. ďWhy doesnít America just assassinate Kim Jong-un already?Ē Ishihara asked. ďI mean, they killed Gaddafi and Bin laden Ö Assassinations are their specialty.Ē Sponsored Content Top 7 Reasons to Get Your...
  • Joy Reid Guest: 'Hubris' for Trump to Think He Could be Assassination Target

    11/06/2016 7:43:06 AM PST · by governsleastgovernsbest · 26 replies
    In one of the more absurd statement of this absurd political season, Joy Reid guest Michelle Bernard said it was "hubris" for Donald Trump to imagine that he was "akin" to American leaders who have been the target of assassination attempts such as Lincoln, MLK, JFK, RFK and Reagan. How illogical can Bernard be? Whether or not Trump belongs in the political pantheon she described, can she possibly believe that he could not possibly be the target of a madman? And what of the lesser figures who were the object of assassination attempts, such as McKinley, Garfield and Gerald Ford?...

    Greetings Readers, Friends, and Other Visitors: The Time Traveler appeared suddenly in my study on New Yearís Eve, 2004. He was a stolid, grizzled man in a gray tunic and looked to be in his late-sixties or older. He also appeared to be the veteran of wars or of some terrible accident since he had livid scars on his face and neck and hands, some even visible in his scalp beneath a fuzz of gray hair cropped short in a military cut. One eye was covered by a black eyepatch. Before I could finish dialing 911 he announced in a...

    Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday hailed Iran's "glorious" elections for parliament and the Assembly of Experts, a powerful body that will pick his successor, declaring that the turnout showed "the brilliant face of religious democracy to the world." The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), meanwhile, called the election participation -- the regime reported a turnout of more than 60 percent -- "devastating for [Iran's] enemies," led by the United States.

    Time ^ | 07 Dec 2012 | John Koster
    The ďinfamyĒ of December 7, 1941, is deeper than most Americans have ever imagined. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was almost certainly the result of a Soviet plotóďOperation SnowĒócarried out by Harry Dexter White, a figure of enormous influence in the Roosevelt administration and a known Soviet spy. Americans remember Pearl Harbor as the work of a Japanese military machine hell-bent on a war of conquest. The truth is more complicated. The imperial regime had faced severe political shocks throughout the 1930s. Two attempts on the life of Emperor Hirohitoóone by a Japanese communist whose father was a member...

    Ngo Dinh Diem, the first president of the Republic of Vietnam, possessed the Confucian "Mandate of Heaven," a moral and political authority that was widely recognized by all Vietnamese. What is not commonly known is that Diem was a devout Roman Catholic - in fact, he was a third-order Benedictine and daily communicant. Diem was taken down by a military coup sponsored by the U.S. government and ultimately betrayed by the administration of the first Catholic President, John F. Kennedy, which resulted in Diem's brutal murder on Nov. 2, 1963. In his new book, THE LOST MANDATE OF HEAVEN: The...

    The stabilization of Iraq has become wedged on a plateau, beyond which further improvement will be a slow process. According to incident metrics compiled by Olive Group, the average monthly number of insurgent attacks between January and June 2011 was 380.[1] The incident count in January was 376, indicating that incident levels remained roughly stable in the first half of 2011. One reason behind this stability is the ongoing virulence of northern and central Iraqi insurgents operating within Sunni Arab communities. Five predominately Sunni provinces and western Baghdad were responsible for an average of 68.5% of national incidents each month...

    The documents kept by the Iraqi Intelligence Service were meticulous in detail and sweeping in scope. In some, Iraqi intelligence officers in the United States are directed to use informers to track the "criminal'' actions of one current and one former Chicago area resident, both Assyrian Christians from Iraq who founded an anti-Saddam Hussein political party. Another accuses the group of being influenced by "imperialists'' and "Zionists.'' Others include the exact dates of the group's meetings and conventions in Chicago and elsewhere, the names of the people who ran the events, those in attendance and what statements were made.

    The CIA should be abolished. After a trial run of 67 years, the agency has proven a sorcererís apprentice. The director and his subordinates have became insufferably arrogant Platonic Guardians hiding behind secrecy in the belief that the rest of us are too stupid or naive to judge what risks to accept to preserve liberty and the rule of law. The CIA has made Americans less safe. Its incorrigible anti-democratic ethos was epitomized by legendary chief of counterintelligence James J. Angleton. He voiced contempt for the Church Committeeís investigation of chronic agency abuses, i.e., the ďFamily Jewels.Ē As reported in...

    Those tasked with executing the strike on Bashar al Assad's regime in Syria were reportedly shocked when U.S. President Barack Obama announced Saturday that he wanted to seek Congressional approval first, according to Chris Lawrence with CNN. "The tempo went from 'go-go-go' to nothing," an unnamed defense official told CNN. "We were standing multiple watches. Everyone was pretty sure it was going to happen." With U.S. destroyers and submarines moored off the coast of Syria, battle stations manned, and fingers on the trigger of hundreds of Tomahawk cruise missiles, Obama reportedly changed his mind Friday evening on executing the strike...

"The administration is actively consulting with members of Congress, and we will continue to have these conversations in the days ahead," Kerry said Monday in a strongly-worded statement on Syria.
