    Johnson’s political muzzling silenced the primary moral and religious voices that Founder John Adams said were essential to the life of the Republic.. In 1954, then freshman U.S. senator Lyndon B. Johnson was running for re-election in a hotly-contested Democratic primary against fellow-Democrat State Representative Dudley T. Dougherty. THE NEW DEAL WITH THE DEVIL IN 1954: GIVE UP YOUR MORAL AND FREE SPEECH RIGHTS IN EXCHANGE FOR TAX WRITE-OFFS In the heat of that 1954 Texas primary campaign, Johnson introduced his now infamous “Johnson Amendment” in the U.S. Senate. His revisions further restricted the free speech of churches and religious...
  • Lyndon Johnson was a civil rights hero. But also a racist.

    Lyndon Johnson said the word “nigger” a lot. In Senate cloakrooms and staff meetings, Johnson was practically a connoisseur of the word. According to Johnson biographer Robert Caro, Johnson would calibrate his pronunciations by region, using “nigra” with some southern legislators and “negra” with others. Discussing civil rights legislation with men like Mississippi Democrat James Eastland, who committed most of his life to defending white supremacy, he’d simply call it “the nigger bill.” Then in 1957, Johnson would help get the “nigger bill” passed, known to most as the Civil Rights Act of 1957. With the 1964 Civil Rights Act...

    PLEASE BE SURE TO READ WHAT SENATOR JOHN GLENN SAID, Scroll down. Things that make you think a little........ There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq during January.....In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January. That's just one American city, about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq. When some claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war, state the following .. FDR...led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did. From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per Year. Truman...finished that war...

    Got Brain? By Donnel Jones, April 20, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms The New York Times hits a new low with coverage of an "experiment" that seeks to determine the activity of a person's brain and how that correlates to their being a Democrat or Republican. Science meets pseudo-science. We might as well have Dr. Mengele use his medical training to ascertain the essence of "Jewishness" using various "technologies." Of course, the researchers here are not sadistic half-man who torture children. Rather, they are wasting their patron's money (who is financing this nonsense, anyway?) with technologies that have proved invaluable in medical...

    Back to Basics for the Republican Party ^ | May 8, 2003 | Michael Zak
    Credit Where Credit Is Due: The Republicans Passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act by Michael Zak During the Kennedy administration, the Republican minority in Congress introduced many bills to protect the constitutional rights of blacks, including a comprehensive new civil rights bill. In February 1963, to head off a return by most blacks to the party of Lincoln, Kennedy abruptly decided to submit to Congress a new civil rights bill. Hastily drafted in a single all-nighter, the Kennedy bill fell well short of what our Party had introduced into Congress the month before. Over the next several months, Democrat racists...
  • Family values vs. Truth and Justice

    11/08/2002 11:18:48 AM PST · by substandard042 · 312+ views
    What’s more important: Truth & Justice or “Family Values” Although meant to be rhetorical, it’s a good question whose answer is surprisingly intuitive and can be arrived at through logic. Undoubtedly, however, he who asked the question has none of this thing called intuition, and most likely knows nil of logic. Lunatic Liberal Lyndon LaRouche, a mostly unknown and uninfluential “Democratic Presidential pre-candidate” (1) was the man to ask the question on a campaign poster at the University of Houston. I won’t dwell on him, because no one knows or cares about him or his ideas- basically, he is unimportant....
