  • A Date Which Will Live In Infamy

    12/02/2021 7:00:29 AM PST · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | December 2, 2021 | Austin Bay
    December 7, 1941. "A date which will live in infamy," President Franklin D. Roosevelt called it. The attack's 80th anniversary is this month. Infamy. Webster's Dictionary defines infamy as: "evil reputation brought about by something grossly criminal, shocking, or brutal." From the U.S. perspective, the Japanese 1941 sneak attack on Pearl Harbor definitely fits that definition. The Japanese elites -- other than Adm. Isoruku Yamamoto -- thought the sneak attack would do two things. The semi-sane bean counters thought it would destroy America's Pacific Ocean fleet and make retribution (counterattack on Japan) impossible, or at least improbable. The total whack-job,...
  • Fear Is Deadlier Than Viruses

    11/23/2021 5:44:43 AM PST · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | November 23, 2021 | Dennis Prager
    The most famous words of Franklin Roosevelt, America's longest-serving president, were, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." One wonders if any world leader would or could say that today. We live in the Age of Fear. All of my life, I thought love and hate were the two most powerful human emotions. But owing to recent events, I have changed my mind. I now understand that for most people, fear is the strongest emotion. In fact, I've come to realize that it is possible to get people to do anything if you instill enough fear in...
  • FDR's World War II Internment Camps : How Japanese Americans Confronted Injustice While Still Loving America

    The Federalist ^ | 09/20/2021 | Helen Raleigh
    The internment of Japanese Americans during World War II is a well-known dark chapter in American history. What is less known today is how Japanese Americans responded to such injustice at the time. Daniel James Brown’s new book, Facing the Mountain: A True Story of Japanese American Heroes in World War II, fills this gap in our understanding.Before WWII, many first-generation Japanese immigrants in the United States, known as “Issei,” already endured racial discrimination. President Theodore Roosevelt signed the Naturalization Act of 1906, limiting naturalization to someone who was a “white person” or had African nativity and descent. Therefore, Isseis...
  • Mike Pence: Joe Biden Campaigned ‘As A Moderate’ But He’s ‘Most Liberal President Since FDR’

    Former Vice President Mike Pence during a speech Thursday in New Hampshire blasted the policies of President Joe Biden, observing the president had gone from campaigning “as a moderate” to becoming “the most liberal president since FDR.” Pence delivered his remarks during the Hillsborough County GOP’s annual Lincoln Reagan Dinner, and as he railed against Biden and spoke optimistically about the Republican Party’s future, the former vice president only further added to speculation that he himself could be considering a run for president in 2024. Although Pence did not give any indications of his plans during his comments, he conveyed...
  • Biden as the new FDR: It's the same old bad deal for jobs

    BY AMITY SHLAES President Biden doesn’t want merely to showcase Franklin Roosevelt. He wants to replicate him. As President Roosevelt once did with the New Deal, Biden intends to spend to spur growth, though Biden’s proposals are magnitudes greater. As Roosevelt once did, Biden argues that helping unions helps the worker, and he hopes to undo 27 states’ “Right to Work” option.

    Will the fake news media ignore this too? Joe Biden is sending unaccompanied migrant children from Central America to a former Japanese Internment Camp. This is the third camp for unaccompanied children in the state of California so far this year! Press California reported: The Los Angeles County Fairgrounds, one of the places Japanese Americans were held during World War II, will serve as an emergency shelter for unaccompanied children who have crossed the border into the United States, L.A. County has announced. Hilda Solis, chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, said the decision was made after...
  • Biden's FDR Delusion

    In early March, President Joe Biden met with a group of seven historians in the East Room of the White House. One topic of conversation: Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the New Deal. "He'd like to be [FDR]," Axios' Mike Allen reported in an inside account of the meeting. "Biden's presidency has already been transformative, and he has many more giant plans teed up that could make Biden's New Deal the biggest change to governance in our lifetimes." That's a bit over the top -- we don't know what is to come, but in its first 70 days Biden's presidency has...

    The flood of people entering America illegally from Mexico is preventing Immigration and Customs Enforcement from properly processing them. The Biden Administration's revival of former President Obama's "catch-and-release" policy has resulted in thousands of immigrants, some of them COVID-positive, being put on buses and sent to towns in various states. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) admits "it's a mess," but insists "it's Trump's fault. Look, for four years Trump put the clamps on illegal entry with his wall, his 'wait in Mexico' requirement for asylum seekers, and his agreements with the Latin American governments to discourage caravans. President Biden...

    How a leading corporation knowingly organized all six phases of the Holocaust. Twenty years ago this week, my book, IBM and the Holocaust exposed with crystal clarity—backed up with a literal tower of physical documentation—that IBM knowingly organized all six phases of the Holocaust: identification, exclusion, confiscation, ghettoization, deportation, and even extermination, all under the micromanagement of its celebrated CEO, Thomas Watson, Sr., operating from his New York office on Madison Avenue, and later through European subsidiaries. Without IBM, there would have always been a Holocaust of hundreds of thousands. Einsatzgruppen murder squads and their militia cohorts would still have...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) announced today that she has created a new congressional committee—inspired by President Franklin D. Roosevelt—that is designed “to study and combat the concentration of wealth in America and its role in triggering economic collapse.” “As House Speaker, I am proud to announce the creation of the new, bipartisan Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth, which will be an essential force in Congressional Democrats’ action to combat the crisis of income and wealth disparity in America,” Pelosi said. “It is molded after the mission of the Temporary National Economic Committee, founded by President...

    Mayflower History ^ | Caleb Johnson
    The tradition of the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving is steeped in myth and legend. Few people realize that the Pilgrims did not celebrate Thanksgiving the next year, or any year thereafter, though some of their descendants later made a "Forefather's Day" that usually occurred on December 21 or 22. Several Presidents, including George Washington, made one-time Thanksgiving holidays. In 1827, Mrs. Sarah Josepha Hale began lobbying several Presidents for the creation of Thanksgiving as a national holiday, but her lobbying was unsuccessful until 1863 when Abraham Lincoln finally made it a national holiday. Today, our Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday of...
  • Quick Compelling Bible Study Vol. 36: Thanksgiving to God

    When starting to write this holiday-themed Bible Study, I Googled “Myra Adams Thanksgiving” to refresh my memory of prior Turkey Day op-eds with (honestly) the intention of “stealing” some thoughts or quotes. Seriously, how many times can one reinvent the “real” meaning of Thanksgiving when Divine concepts and the holiday’s biblical basis remain static and well-documented?Besides, stealing thoughts or quotes from holidays past is not specified as contravening one of the Ten Commandments – "You shall not steal” (Exodus 20:15).Hence, let’s begin with the “Father of Our Country” George Washington, who also fathered the Thanksgiving holiday. As you read his...

    As I write on a brilliant autumn day, the reports on the president are all pretty promising. He is going to make it. There was a kerfuffle over the weekend over whether he took oxygen or not. It appears he did but not very much and his doctors ended it promptly. If memory serves, there was a similar kerfuffle over President Ronald Reagan 39 years ago when a deranged movie fanatic opened fire on him. Some of the president's aides in the White House reported no loss of blood or almost no loss of blood. Others reported that the president...

    As President Trump moves to nominate a candidate to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday, there are a growing number of Democrats threatening to implement a radical strategy and pack the Supreme Court if they take control of the White House and the Senate. “If he holds a vote in 2020, we pack the court in 2021,” Rep. Joe Kennedy III, D-Mass., tweeted on Saturday. “It’s that simple.” “Mitch McConnell set the precedent. No Supreme Court vacancies filled in an election year. If he violates it, when Democrats control the Senate in the next Congress,...

    President Donald Trump delivered a moving address during the 75th-anniversary commemoration of D-Day in Normandy, France, on Thursday. The president took the stage shortly after French President Emmanuel Macron and addressed the crowd, which included 60 American veterans who were present on D-Day when the American forces stormed the beaches of Normandy. “You are the pride of our nation, you are the glory of the republic, and we thank you from the bottom of our heart,” Trump said to applause. The president honored the troops from other countries before asserting, “And finally, there were the Americans.” “They came from the...
