  • Israel's Retaliation Of Attacks Justified (How the great late Edgar Ansel Mowrer rebuked the United Nations condemnation of "excessive force" in 1966)

    The Norwalk Hour ^ | Dec 5, 1966 | Edgar Ansel Mowrer
    On World Affairs. By FDGAR ANSEL MOWRE — Israel's Retaliation Of Attacks Justfied. The United Nations' categorical condemnation of Israel's reprisal raid on neighboring Jordan indicates a very peculiar sense of justice in those members of the Security Council who voted it. The Security Council revealed itself as hypocritical, masking the nationalistic or cowardly policies of its members behind a cloud of moral bombast. Strong words? Consider the facts of the situation, which many readers may have forgotten. Israel was started by the Balfour Declaration of a "Jewish Homeland in Palestine" of 1917 — which Pres. Wilson wholeheartedly supported. As...

    I found this great gem today and I just had to upload this. This is a short clip from ABC's Mid Term Election Preview special on Sunday November 6th 1966. This clip is about Reagan's quest to become Governor of California. At this point, the pollsters expected Reagan to win by 4 or 5 percent, but on Election Day it was not even close. Reagan won by 15% and won all but three counties.

    Hurricane season began on June 1st and more often than not it is a month that doesn’t feature too much tropical storm activity, but back in early June 1966 it was a different story. On June 4th, the first tropical depression of the young season formed near Nicaragua. The tropical depression moved north into the already warm waters of the Western Caribbean and strengthened rapidly into Hurricane Alma as it made landfall on the western tip of Cuba. Typically, when tropical systems make landfall they weaken, but Alma only got stronger as it continued to make its way to the...

  • There Have Been 13 Mass School Shootings Since 1966, Not 27 This Year

    Reason ^ | 05/26/22 | Robby Soave
    For many people, the Uvalde, Texas, mass shooting—which claimed the lives of at least 19 children and two adults—seemed all the more horrible after they learned it was the 27th school shooting so far this year. That fact makes it harder to view Uvalde as any kind of isolated incident. An NPR article highlighting this statistic has been shared frequently on social media. The headline, "27 school shootings have taken place so far this year," probably gave many readers the impression that gun-related killings in schools have been especially high this year, even before Uvalde. Naturally, the prospect of 26...

    Road to MoscowBill Clinton’s Early Activism from Fulbright to Moscow By Fedora SummaryDuring the 1992 campaign, Bill Clinton’s student protests and Moscow trip generated much controversy, but few answers. While Clinton’s government files from that era seemingly remain unavailable even today, there is at least more information available than in 1992. The public record reveals that Clinton’s social network and views on Vietnam were influenced by a pattern of contact between Communist agents and sympathizers and Clinton’s academic and political associates. This pattern is documented here through an analysis of Clinton’s antiwar activity up through the time he left Oxford...

    Stories of love are always a holiday classic. And in this holiday film, it’s felt through the heartwarming and sometimes heart-wrenching memories of a classic 1966 Chevy Impala. Based on actual events, we teamed up with Academy Award winners Tom Hooper (director), Claudio Miranda (director of photography) and Rachel Portman (composer) to tell the story of love, redemption and restoration. Because the greatest gift anyone can ever give is joy. Happy Holidays.
  • 1966: PLO, Shukairy, got military aid, training from Chinese Communists; promised to fight alongside Viet Cong

    In June, 1966, Shukairy defiantly declared that the Palestine Liberation Army was receiving military assistance as well as training from the Chinese Communists. In the same month, as a corollary, PLO announced , in programs broadcast over Radio Cairo, that it was preparing to intervene in the Vietnam war.

    George Blake, the former MI6 officer and one of the Cold War's most infamous double agents, has died aged 98, Russian media has reported. Over nine years, the Soviet spy handed over information that led to the betrayal of at least 40 MI6 agents in Eastern Europe. He was jailed in London in 1960, but escaped in 1966 and fled to Russia. The Russian Foreign Intelligence Service said Blake "had a genuine love for our country".

    ...the Black Panther Party was among the most violent, barbaric, revolutionary organizations in modern American history. Its founder—a longtime criminal named Huey Newton—in 1966 drafted a Ten-Point Program charging that because America's “racist government” had collaborated with “the capitalists” to “rob” the “Black Community” blind, that same government was now morally “obligated,” as a form of restitution, to give all blacks “employment or a guaranteed income” as well as taxpayer-funded “land, bread, housing, education, [and] clothing” until the end of time. Moreover, Newton argued that “all Black people should be released from … jails and prisons because they have not...

    Most people think that the two most important names in the Democratic race for the White House in 2016 are Obama and Clinton. However, the two names you should be paying attention to are Cloward and Piven. Don't know who they are? Don't worry, most people don't — but conservative commentator and generally kicka** guy Chuck Norris is going to make sure they do. In an op-ed for WND, Norris explained that the two people — Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven — were academics who came up with a plan to introduce permanent socialism in the United States. Norris...

    The Federalist ^ | 06/26/2020 | Helen Raleigh
    The image of George Washington’s statue facing the ground after being toppled and vandalized in Portland fills my heart with immense sadness. The imagery set forth a wave of baleful nostalgia of a similar incident 54 years ago. During China’s Cultural Revolution, a prominent statue of Confucius was dismantled by militant university and high school students who referred to themselves as the “Red Guards.” It seems, in many respects, 2020 may be a repeat of 1966.What drove Chinese Communist Party dictator Mao Zedong to launch the Cultural Revolution in May 1966 was his unquenchable desire to seize and maintain...

    In revolutions, the second generation, the one that’s been weaned on the revolution, is always truer and purer in its beliefs than the first generation. Like all true believers, these children of the revolution will brutally purge heretics, which is why revolutions always eat their own. The most famous recent example is Mao’s Cultural Revolution, which saw students violently destroy anyone who deviated from Maoist doctrine. We’re witnessing that now across corporate America, especially in the media, as college grads destroy the woke leftists who hired them. China’s Cultural Revolution began in 1966. When it ended a decade later,...

    Kwanzaa Is Wack: There, I Said It Kwanzaa is wack. The other day I said this on my Facebook page. Actually, what I said was:” Is it wrong of me to say that I love AFRICA, but I think Kwanzaa is wack? #ducksfromthebricks .” Now, when I said it, I meant it but gave no thought to how it might affect people. I’m kind of bad like that. A ton of people (some Black and some not) got on and said they thought Kwanzaa was wack to. I never thought about it again really. Just a funny little thread. Then...
  • Happy Kwanzaa! The Holiday Brought to You By the FBI

    12/24/2019 3:56:45 AM PST · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | December 24, 2019 | Ann Coulter
    Kwanzaa, celebrated exclusively by white liberals, is a fake holiday invented in 1966 by black radical/FBI stooge Ron Karenga -- aka Dr. Maulana Karenga, founder of United Slaves, the violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers. Liberals have become so mesmerized by multicultural gibberish that they have forgotten the real history of Kwanzaa and Karenga's United Slaves. In what was ultimately a foolish gambit, during the madness of the '60s, the FBI encouraged the most extreme black nationalist organizations in order to discredit and split the left. The more preposterous the group, the better. (It's the same function MSNBC serves...
  • Wrecked rare "1966 Shelby GT350" on eBay is a diamond in rough shape

    A rare 1966 Shelby GT350 has hit eBay after being hit pretty badly in an accident. The white fastback featured on  is being offered with a salvage title, and it’s easy to see why. The left rear corner is bashed in so far that the cabin is crooked, while the right front fender is also crushed. It looks like it’s in pretty good condition, otherwise. There’s no significant damage to its 289 V8, which the Glendale, Calif., seller says turns over but doesn’t run because of a hole in the gas tank, and the parts of the interior that survived are in great shape...

    On the Friday after Thanksgiving 1962, Cuban agents planned to detonate 500 kilos of TNT inside Macy's, Gimbel's, Bloomingdale's and Manhattan's Grand Central Terminal. Che Guevara was the head of Cuba's "Foreign Liberation Department" at the time. On September 11th 2001, roughly 50,000 people worked at the World Trade Center. Macy’s alone gets roughly 50,000 shoppers on Black Friday. Castro and Che planned their Manhattan holocaust short weeks after Nikita Khrushchev foiled their plans for an even bigger one. "Say hello to my little friends!" Castro had dreamed of yelling at us in October of 1962, right before he imagined...
