  • Amity Shlaes’ ‘Great Society:’ How Poverty Won America’s War on Poverty

    —Sargent Shriver, brother in law of JFK and the “architect” of the “War on Poverty,” to socialist Michael Harrington (who wanted much, much more of the American taxpayers’ dollars), 1964. Amity Shlaes’ newest book, Great Society: A New History is a sequel to her two studies of 1930s and 1920s, 2007’s The Forgotten Man, and 2013’s Coolidge. The eponymous Forgotten Man was the taxpayer, the man footing the bill to fund FDR’s New Deal. As a UCLA press release explained in 2004, “FDR’s policies prolonged Depression by 7 years, UCLA economists calculate.” Even socialist Roosevelt worshiper Paul Krugman has been...

    There's too much chatter about movies that are "so bad, they're good." These admittedly amusing musings distract from a truly insidious phenomenon: Movies "so good, they're bad." No such creature as "just a movie" exists. We may (believe ourselves to) be capable of separating fact from fiction, but millions of people never will. Take the "Hitler's Pope" canard. It was popularized by, of all things, a Soviet-orchestrated stage play called The Deputy, back in 1963. How many individuals have heard of this play, let alone seen it performed? A few thousand? Yet the Vatican's supposed collusion with the Nazis is...
  • 'American Pie' singer Don McLean says music no longer exists because of 'nihilistic society'

    Don McLean, the 74-year-old singer best known for his 1971 hit “American Pie,” says he is not impressed with the music of today. The singer-songwriter believes times have certainly changed since his early days in the music industry, and he’s claiming there is no longer music of substance when he turns on the radio. The folk-rock singer sat down with Tom Cridland for his YouTube series “The Greatest Music of All Time” to reflect on his musical career highlights. During the candid conversation, McLean partially discusses his political views, claiming that politics no longer “really mean anything,” and he likened...

    ...As the clock struck midnight on the east coast Friday morning, Dylan released a new song, “Murder Most Foul,” that has a 16:57 running time — and it’s an epic free association on the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy...In the song’s view, the killing of JFK, “right there in front of everyone’s eyes,” is the “greatest magic trick” — and one he presumably thinks has some relevance in 2020.

    Only a month before, the top local newspaper had been promoting the fact that one of the 10 candidates seeking the Democratic nomination in an urban northeastern congressional district was also "one of the few women vet candidates for political office in the country." Even so, she lost the primary. Now, on the Fourth of July, the man who had defeated her was the principal speaker at the city's historic town hall. He was preceded by the mayor and introduced by his grandfather. He did not deliver the typical Democratic message. "Throughout the years, down to the present, a devotion...

    While vising the home state of his Vice-President Lyndon Baines Johnson, November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas. The youngest President ever elected, being 43 years old, he was also the youngest to die, barely serving 1,000 days. Kennedy was on his way to the Dallas Trade Mart to deliver a speech, in which he had prepared to say: "We in this country, in this generation, are - by destiny rather than choice - the watchmen on the walls of world freedom. We ask, therefore, that we may be worthy of our power and responsibility, that...

    Medium True Crime ^ | Oct. 8, 2017 | Bonar Menninger
    early 1989, I was working as a business reporter in Washington, D.C., and interviewing a private investigator for a story about his company. At the end of our conversation, he casually mentioned he’d done some research into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. “Oh yeah?” I said, in an ironic, indifferent way. “So who killed him?” He said: “Well, I think this gunsmith in Baltimore, a guy named Howard Donahue, figured it out.” The private eye showed me a magazine article from 1977 and as I read it, my skepticism began to fade. Within a week, I was heading...
  • November 22, 1963 The day JFK, Aldous Huxley, & C. S. Lewis died

    Daily Beast ^ | John Garth
    Do you remember what you were doing the day Aldous Huxley died? Or C.S. Lewis? You don’t think so? Well, the odds are that if you were old enough to be laying down memories at the time, you do. Because it was also the day President Kennedy was assassinated. There’s no evidence that Huxley read Lewis, or that Kennedy read either—though his wife Jackie would certainly have read some of their books—but Lewis knew enough of Huxley to mention him in a letter of 1952 as an author of a future dystopia alongside H.G. Wells and George Orwell. The mental...

    I never gave the "Deep State" much thought until the Democrats and Mainstream Media and more than a few Republicans started to go all out to: 1. Get Hillary Elected, and then2. Get Trump to Resign, after he won. I have seen the Media and Dems gang up on Republican Presidents before, but that was unreal in late 2016 and early 2017.It remains unreal with the latest effort. So, starting in 2017, I really started to pay attention and try to follow what was driving the Democrats and Media's madness and hatred for Trump. A number of like minded Twitterers...

    Inextricably linked to the death of John F. Kennedy, surgeon Robert McClelland dutifully preserved the blood-soaked white dress shirt he wore the day he tried to save the president's life in 1963. For the rest of his life, the retired professor emeritus of UT Southwestern's medical school also clung staunchly to a contentious opinion forged firsthand: that one of the shots that had struck Kennedy had come from the front, which would require the existence of a second gunman. Robert Nelson McClelland, the lone dissenting voice among the operating-room doctors who tried to save the president at Parkland Memorial Hospital,...

    This is an extremely powerful video showing who really controls the world. This is really a great video. Stop thinking about Michael Jackson or American Idol for 10 minutes and watch it. Thanks to Dani Martin Mora for the link. My comments afterwards. Like I have said over and over again, political parties don't matter. This partisan game is simply a ruse created by major banks and corporations in order to keep the hoi polloi occupied. The world is controlled by a very few people and they obliterate anyone who tries to stand in their way. It has been that...

  • Hezbollah Isn't Just In Beirut. It's In New York, Too.

    In recent years, Hezbollah has stepped up its activities beyond Lebanon’s borders. This uptick has been clearest in the Middle East—in Iraq, Yemen, and especially Syria—but plots have also been thwarted in South America, Asia, Europe, and now, possibly, the United States. Reports of Hezbollah activity in North America are not new, though such reporting tends to focus on the group’s fundraising, money laundering, procurement, or other logistical activities from Vancouver to Miami. But last month, the criminal prosecution and conviction in New York of the Hezbollah operative Ali Kourani revealed disturbing new information about the extent of Hezbollah’s operations...

    Within the first couple of weeks there were half a dozen marriage proposals. Guys dropping to their knees in the Sunken Lounge and on the cantilevered catwalk — popping the question on the Solari split-flap departure board or in “Connie,” the 1958 TWA Lockheed Constellation Starliner parked outside on the roof of a new underground conference center, the plane’s fuselage converted into a 60’s-era cocktail lounge. The TWA Hotel now occupies Eero Saarinen’s stupendously restored 1962 TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy International Airport, midcentury modernism’s great tribute to sex, adventure and the golden age of air travel. It...

    In a bid to out-promise his rivals for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, former Vice-President Joe Biden has pledged to cure cancer if he is elected. As it so often happens when Biden gloms onto an idea it turns out not to be an original thought. It was in 1971 that the much reviled President Richard Nixon declared “war on cancer.” He even persuaded Congress to pass the National Cancer Act (P.L. 92–218). The government’s war on cancer is now nearing its 50th year. A recent development was the Obama Administration’s “Cancer Moonshot” initiative that Biden himself announced in early...
