  • Evolution and Revolution, by G. D. H. Cole

    In 1921, George Douglas Howard Cole(Who would become a member of the Fabian Society) wrote the following in a book about Guild Socialism: (page 156) We have now completed our outline sketch of the structure and methods of working of a Guild Socialist Commonwealth, and have thus come to the threshold of the practical problem of transition to it from the capitalist Society of to-day. And here the first question that confronts us, as it confronts all Socialists under the conditions of the present time, is the question of "evolution and revolution." Do we hope and intend to bring about...

    There is a new argument that progressives are cooking up, consider this a warning. Be prepared. In Original Intent and the Framers' Constitution, the following is written: (page 268) Oddly enough, those who advocate a constitutional "jurisprudence of original intention" and assert that the Constitution "said what it meant and meant what it said," are the ones who most vigorously deny content to the Ninth Amendment and to the concept of a "living Constitution." Presumably, they would not swear fealty to a dead Constitution, not even to a static one of the sort endorsed by Chief Justice Roger Taney in...

Scotland Yard did not confirm the attacker's identity but did confirm that he was killed during the assault. Police said the man acted alone in the attack.

This is true as an academic statement of history in the past. It is not true as a statement affecting the present. It is true of the history of medieval Europe. It is not true of the history of twentieth-century America.

First-because of his professional consideration of the subject in connection with his classes in Political and Social philosophy; and second, because of his world travels and experiences behind the Iron Curtains.
  • The 14th amendment and the re-founding of America

    02/24/2017 10:07:56 AM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 12 replies
    Historians are fond of referring to the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments together as "America's Second Founding". These three amendments produce an overwhelming, positive good: They abolish (Constitutionally) the legacy of the British Crown in bringing slavery to these colonies and henceforth these states. But here is the funny thing. The "Founding Fathers" of these three amendments, did not create a brand new United States of America. They did not discuss contraceptives. They did not discuss homosexuality, or abortions, the parents of illegal aliens, or any other of the things that radical judges like to say they discussed. They didn't...

  • The Execution of Louis XVI, 1793

    Louis XVI, king of France, arrived in the wrong historical place at the wrong time and soon found himself overwhelmed by events beyond his control. Ascending the throne in 1774, Louis inherited a realm driven nearly bankrupt through the opulence of his predecessors Louis XIV and XV. After donning the crown, things only got worse. The economy spiraled downward (unemployment in Paris in 1788 is estimated at 50%), crops failed, the price of bread and other food soared.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) during an interview Sunday on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.” Pelosi, who has served in the House since 1988, took issue with Warren’s depictions of a severely out-of-touch party in need of desperate revitalization. During a speech delivered Saturday at the Progressive Congress Strategy Summit in Baltimore, Warren demanded her Party “grow a backbone” and implement immediate and sweeping reconstruction.

Day one of Black History Month was the perfect time to dive into what he vowed while on the campaign trail: address the needs within communities of color.

Indeed, our planet's history includes at least several hundred global magnetic reversals, where north and south magnetic poles swap places.

    IN MARCH OF 1965, the first U.S. troops landed in Vietnam. They were carrying the M14 rifle, chambered for the 7.62×51mm NATO (M80 Ball) cartridge, which had a detachable 20-round magazine and was capable of semi- and full-automatic fire.

The Prime Minister’s gracious gesture is another branch of allegiance, a sure sign of respect for the Judeo-Christian heritage upon which our great nation was built. For so many of us, that respect is mutual. This is why we commit to Psalm 122:6, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” the rightful...
