    In poor health two months before his death, Franklin Roosevelt met with King Abdul Aziz ibm Saud on the USS Quincy in the Suez Canal on February 14, 1945. Later, on April 5, 1945, Roosevelt wrote to King Abdul Aziz ibn Saud, promising that as long as he was President, America would not recognize a Jewish State: "I communicated to you the attitude of the American Government toward Palestine ... that no decision be taken ... I assured you that I would take no action, in my capacity as Chief of the Executive ... with regard to the question of...

    A new analysis by The College Fix this week reveals that the federal Truman Scholarship was only awarded to leftist students in 2018. None of the 59 recipients identified as a conservative American. The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation offers $30,000 scholarships to promising high school students who pledge to spend three years after graduation in public service. The federal scholarship is awarded to 59 students each year. “We identify young people at an important inflection point in their development—when they are college juniors—and recognize and reward their commitments to devote themselves to public service,” the scholarship’s website reads. According...

    Jan van Risseghem was only a teenager when his mother ordered him to flee Nazi-occupied Belgium for her native England with his brother Maurice. After hiding in a convent, and an epic journey across the war-torn continent, they reached safety in Portugal, then took a ship north. Once in England, the pair signed up with the Belgian resistance, and with the help of an uncle enrolled for flight training with the RAF, a decision that shaped not just their war, but the rest of their lives. Half a century later, flying skills he learned in Britain would also make the...

    Ernesto Davila Marin was in elementary school when rebellion interrupted class. As he left the schoolhouse that October day, black smoke rose from the town center where nationalists had set Jayuya ablaze, shooting police officers and declaring the independent republic of Puerto Rico from a rooftop. In the struggle for sovereignty from American colonial rule, Puerto Rican independence fighters staged uprisings in nearly a dozen cities that day in 1950 and later attempted to assassinate President Harry S. Truman. They held the central mountain city for three days until U.S. Air Force bombers buzzed over the emerald peaks packed with...

    THIS IS a solemn but a glorious hour. I only wish that Franklin D. Roosevelt had lived to witness this day. General Eisenhower informs me that the forces of Germany have surrendered to the United Nations. The flags of freedom fly over all Europe. For this victory, we join in offering our thanks to the Providence which has guided and sustained us through the dark days of adversity. Our rejoicing is sobered and subdued by a supreme consciousness of the terrible price we have paid to rid the world of Hitler and his evil band. Let us not forget, my...

    [I begin] with the story of a series of Socialist scholars conferences that Barack Obama attended when he lived in New York City between the years 1983 and 1985. And when I finally reconstructed what had gone on at these Socialist conferences that Barack Obama attended, I truly was amazed because what I saw was a kind of map of Barack Obama’s entire subsequent political career. It was at this Socialist conferences in New York in the mid-’80s that Barack Obama encountered the groups, the strategies, and the mentors who would guide him throughout his entire political career. [T]hese Socialist...

    Donald Trump isn’t the only U.S. president who loved to bash the Washington press corps. The original “Give ‘em Hell” Harry S. Truman called journalists covering the White House “prostitutes of the mind” in a letter written on Dec. 29, 1955 to pal Dean Acheson. In the salty letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Post, Truman rails against newspaper writers and columnists, calling them “more dangerous” than street walkers. “Presidents and the members of their Cabinets and their staff members have been slandered and misrepresented since George Washington,” Truman wrote in the hand-written diatribe. “When the press...

    Said the President: "For some time I have been disturbed by the way CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and, at times, a policy-making arm of the Government. ... [T]his quiet intelligence arm of the President has been so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue."This dire warning about the propensity of the Central Intelligence Agency to go rogue came from Harry S. Truman.Truman's call to "limit the CIA role to intelligence" was published in December 22, 1963, by the Washington...

    A LINE has been drawn under a famous episode in American presidential folklore with the death of a mild-mannered music reviewer once threatened with serious physical injury by President Harry Truman. Paul Hume, The Washington Post's music critic, wrote a gently damning review of the singing of Margaret Truman, the president's daughter, at a 1950 Washington recital. "Miss Truman is a unique American phenomenon with a pleasant voice of little size and fair quality," Hume wrote of the performance. "She is extremely attractive on stage, yet Miss Truman cannot sing very well. She is flat a good deal of the...

    American Thinker ^ | January 22, 2017 | E. Jeffrey Ludwig
    Inauguration Day 2017 has placed the U.S. on a new political and economic trajectory. President Donald Trump won the votes of the so-called Rust Belt, where workers and their children and grandchildren, who have been dispossessed and displaced by the economics of globalization, turned blue counties into red counties. Thus, in a legitimate sense, Trump's appeal to the "forgotten man" – so similar to Franklin D. Roosevelt's appeal to the same symbol – is valid. FDR's forgotten man was a composite of all those who were unemployed in the Great Depression who were "forgotten" in the sense that their plight...

    71 years ago, the crew of the B-29 Enola Gay under the command of Brigadier General Paul Tibbets, operating under General Curtis LeMay, dropped the first atomic bomb to be used in warfare on Hiroshima Japan. We all know (or should know) the story. Today's sob sisters and history revisionists all make the same whining and wailing excuses for why America should not have dropped the atomic bombs on Japan, but just like the radioactive dust those bombs produced, the opinions of such low lifes will also eventually dissipate into the insignificant categories of history. And God Bless President Harry...
