    Failure-proof freedom is not possible. But we strive for it. Herbert Hoover knew in 1936 just how bad “perfect” plans could become. What good did it do the pharaohs in Exodus to resist the will of God and think that they could overcome the pestilences He sent them. Nowadays entire societies think that by shutting down they can conquer a pandemic. The world is slowly realising that lockdowns don’t save us and the economic truth of what we are as workers, traders and customers. This knowledge may come too late to save the Trump presidency. But will the spirit of...
  • The First US Vice President of Color: Charles Curtis (American Indian VP under Herbert Hoover)

    08/14/2020 8:43:54 AM PDT · by UnwashedPeasant · 4 replies
    Charles Curtis (1860–1936) was an American attorney who served as the 31st vice president of the United States from 1929 to 1933. A member of the Kaw Nation born in the Kansas-Nebraska Territory in 1860, Curtis was the first person with significant Native American ancestry and the first person with acknowledged non-European ancestry to reach either of the highest offices in the Federal Executive Branch. He is the highest-ranking enrolled Native American ever to serve in the federal government. He is the most recent Executive Branch officer to have been born in a territory rather than a state. He was...
  • Is the standard of truth when being interviewed by the FBI different?

    Is the standard of truth when being interviewed by the FBI, different from other agencies? Other levels of law enforcement? Are you allowed to lie to the local police, or, if not, how do the penalties differ? If things are weighted toward the FBI to a draconian extent, is this a hold-over from HUAC days?

    President William McKinley was assassinated by an anarchist in 1901. The next President, Theodore Roosevelt wanted the government to track anarchist groups, as well as stop sex-trafficking. This led to the creation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1908, though some Congressmen feared it might evolve into a deep-state secret police. In 1914, an anarchist shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand, beginning World War I. Beginning in 1924, the director of the FBI was J. Edgar Hoover, till his death on May 2, 1972. For 48 years, under eight Presidents, J. Edgar Hoover oversaw the Federal Bureau of Investigation, becoming famous...

    FULL TITLE: 'I made a big mistake': American ISIS bride who called for terror attacks at Memorial Day parades and has married three jihadi fighters begs the US to let her go back to Alabama An American jihadi bride living in a refugee camp after fleeing ISIS's last stand in Syria is begging the US to allow her to return home. Hoda Muthana, 24, left Hoover, Alabama in 2014, in order to join ISIS in Syria, where she would later call for US Muslims to 'spill all of the blood' by launching terror attacks during Memorial Day events.

    Last week, the New York Times reported that the FBI, in 2017, launched an investigation of President Trump “to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security” and specifically “whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.” The story was predictably treated as the latest in an endless line of Beginning-of-the-End disasters for the Trump presidency, though – as usual – this melodrama was accomplished by steadfastly ignoring the now-standard, always-buried paragraph pointing out the boring fact that no actual evidence of guilt has yet emerged: The lack of any evidence...

    FRANKFORT Gov. Matt Bevin, making his first public comments on a sexual harassment scandal that has rocked the state House of Representatives, called Saturday for “the immediate resignation of every individual who has settled a sexual harassment case, who is a party to trying to hide this type of behavior.” Bevin, in a hastily called news conference in the Capitol Rotunda, mentioned no one by name. The Republican governor called the allegations serious and reprehensible. “These alleged actions, which haven’t been denied, are reprehensible, indefensible and unacceptable. Any elected official or state employee who has settled a sexual harassment claim...

    Newly released FBI files about the assassination of John F. Kennedy are shedding new light on shooter Lee Harvey Oswald and the bureau chief's efforts to quell conspiracy theories about the fatal shooting of the nation's 35th president. In the chaotic aftermath of the assassination, followed two days later by the murder of Oswald while in police custody, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover vented his frustration in a formerly secret report found in the files. It opened: "There is nothing further on the Oswald case except that he is dead." But, reflecting on Oswald less than an hour after he...

    “It’s kind of like discovering a dusty box of papers in your parent’s home,” NBC’s Peter Alexander remarks this morning … if your dad was J. Edgar Hoover or James Jesus Angleton. Mostly as promised, the government finally released most of its heretofore secret archive on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy almost exactly fifty-four years ago. After a last-minute objection from the CIA, a small group of documents were withheld for further review, but there’s enough to keep historians busy for a while — including an unknown statement from FBI Director Hoover two days after the assassination.In...

    The Soviet Union theorized that President Lyndon B. Johnson could have been behind JFK’s assassination — and also feared Moscow could be blamed and attacked, according to documents in a major release of files related to Kennedy’s slaying on Thursday. The Dec. 1, 1966, FBI memo, which relayed unconfirmed speculation, noted that sources said the KGB “was in possession of data purporting to indicate President Johnson was responsible for the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy.” The memo, which was forwarded to the White House by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover with the all-caps title “REACTION OF SOVIET...

    Let’s cut right to the chase: James Comey should have been fired immediately following his disastrous press briefing last July, in which he candidly laid out the case against Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information and then refused to recommend charges. Overstepping his authority while radiating sanctimony, arrogating power while clumsily intervening in the election, Comey deserved to be sacked on the spot. Everything since has been one long slow twist in the wind for Comey, a former US attorney in Manhattan, where his most notable accomplishment was sending Martha Stewart to jail. Ignore for the moment Comey’s...

    Paine’s contribution to American independence 241 years ago during the first American Fourth Turning cannot be overstated. His clarion call for colonial unity against a tyrannical British monarch played a providential role in convincing farmers, shopkeepers, and tradesmen reconciliation with a hereditary monarchy was impossible, and armed separation was the only common sense option. The same common sense Paine used to argue against a tyrannical, oppressive hereditary monarchy applies today when judging our corrupt, authoritarian, co-opted government. His themes of society as a blessing, government as evil, and revolution as inevitable are as applicable today as they were 241 years...

    FRANKFORT — For the first time in nearly a century, a Republican is holding the speaker’s gavel in Kentucky’s House of Representatives. House Speaker Jeff Hoover was confirmed to the position via acclimation during Tuesday’s opening of the 2017 General Assembly’s 30-day session. In his opening remarks to the chamber, Hoover said the state faces a number of challenges that need to be resolved and that his focus as speaker will be doing what he can to address them. He also had a message for lawmakers in both parties: the election season is done. Republicans wrested control of the House...

    ...Trump swore that he would refuse his Presidential salary if elected... John F. Kennedy was the wealthiest man ever sworn in as President of the United States. He had given his congressional salary to charity, and he maintained the practice once he got to the White House. Herbert Hoover, whose net worth was estimated to be nearly $4 million in 1913, divided most of his presidential salary between various charities. He used the rest to supplement the incomes of his staff.

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation has broken its silence on the most popular file in its digital vault. The one-page memo, dated March 22, 1950, was addressed to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover from Guy Hottel, then head of the FBI's Washington, D.C., field office. It relayed some information from an informant. The subject: FLYING SAUCERS INFORMATION CONCERNING "An investigator for the Air Force stated that three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico," Hottel writes. "They were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter. Each one was occupied by three...

    Their hopes buoyed by a conservative wave that carried Gov.-elect Matt Bevin to a 9-point win on Tuesday, Republicans are optimistic in their prospects to retake control of Kentucky's House of Representatives for the first time since 1921. "I’ve been on the phone since seven o'clock this morning fielding calls from the candidates that we’ve been recruiting and looking at districts where we lacked a little bit of interest to this point," state Rep. Jonathan Shell, chairman of the House Republican Caucus Campaign Committee, told Pure Politics in a phone interview on Wednesday. "And in those districts where we lacked...
