This will prove insufficient but it is a start. New York (AFP) - New York is on alert against the deadly Ebola virus, rolling out tough new airport screening measures and introducing strict rules at hospitals while simultaneously warning the public there is no cause for panic. The first death from Ebola on US soil in Texas on Wednesday sent concern rippling through major cities, which are now ramping up efforts to prevent an American outbreak of the disease that has claimed 3,900 lives in West Africa. New York's John F. Kennedy International will become the first airport in the United States to start new screening measures on Saturday, aimed at halting the disease in its tracks should more cases emerge. Travelers from Ebola-affected nations of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone will be screened by border agents checking for signs of illness such as high temperatures, even if they've already been checked upon departure.
FROM HERE AND THERE. This is The US of A. An interesting read. The best part is when I had brought out some more similar things with my American Green Card Indian friends when they were shouting "the killer of Godhra Minorities is to become the Indian Prime Minister, shame on India". The reply was why do you go into our past to justify today, we are talking of today. The chipmunks are not even US citizens yet but talk of "we and our past" A nation of Hippocrites.

First, since the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission is so worried about the religious minorities in India it needs to request the State Department to provide these minorities with permanent visas to migrate to the US.

Historic Speeches 'Kennedy for President' Campaign Button Acceptance of Democratic Nomination for President On the late Friday afternoon of July 15, 1960, Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts appeared before a crowd of eighty thousand people in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to deliver his formal acceptance of the Democratic Party’s nomination for President of the United States. Before what was at the time touted as the largest crowd ever to hear a political speech, John F. Kennedy spoke of "the New Frontier" --a frontier of unknown opportunities and perils-- a frontier of unfulfilled hopes and threats.Click here to watch speech.WH *** (crop): White House Portrait of President Kennedy, undated Address to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association Although Irish Catholics began to play a major role in local and state politics in the latter nineteenth century, the first Catholic to seek a national office was the popular governor of New York, Alfred E.

It Isn't Their Twenty-First Century, Mr. President! by Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison August 28, 2014 President Obama’s reaction to the brutal televised murder of American journalist Jim Foley was heartfelt, to be sure, but it missed the mark. The president deplored such barbarous acts and called them out of place in “the Twenty-First Century.” That begs the question: Whose Twenty-First Century? President Obama promised Hope and Change in 2009. He started off with his first foreign summit, in London, early that year. He actually bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. That was certainly change. No president of the United States had ever bowed to anyone before. When John F. Kennedy met with the newly elevated Pope Paul VI in the Vatican in 1963, our first Catholic President made a point of not kneeling to the Pontiff. So great was JFK’s respect for the history and traditions of the U.S. presidency that he spoke respectfully to the Pope, but remembered his own role. In King Abdullah's Kingdom, peopl ...
If you look at a "U.S. dollar", it actually says "Federal Reserve note" at the top. In the financial world, a "note" is an instrument of debt. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy issued Executive Order 10 which authorized the U.S. Treasury to issue "United States notes" which were created by the U.S. government directly and not by the Federal Reserve. He was assassinated shortly thereafter. Many of the debt-free United States notes issued under President Kennedy are still in circulation today.
No easy problem ever comes to the President of the United States. If they are easy to solve, somebody else has solved them. John F. Kennedy

5/365 Where were we...oh yeah, 1964. The beginnings of the Vietnam War (in earnest). The US has just had a prolific change in emotion following the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Deep in the national subconscious are the beginnings of the rumblings that will lead to civil unrest in the United States. Black people begin to recognize that they should begin to exert their personal choices and strive to become more than the descendants of slaves. The establishment will resist, despite laws and programs to stimulate growth. The late sixties will be a turbulent time punctuated by riots in Watts and Newark. Two more voices as silenced by assassins bullets, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King. Civil unrest stirs and more and more the Vietnam War is draining resources, lives and pervades the national psyche. By 1973 the war is over, America is recognized as the loser in a civil conflict that was first sold to the public as a battle between democracy and communism. The Watergate scandal breaks into t ...
Jul 20, 1969: Armstrong walks on moon At 10:56 p.m. EDT, American astronaut Neil Armstrong, 240,000 miles from Earth, speaks these words to more than a billion people listening at home: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Stepping off the lunar landing module Eagle, Armstrong became the first human to walk on the surface of the moon. The American effort to send astronauts to the moon has its origins in a famous appeal President John F. Kennedy made to a special joint session of Congress on May 25, 1961: "I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth." At the time, the United States was still trailing the Soviet Union in space developments, and Cold War-era America welcomed Kennedy's bold proposal. In 1966, after five years of work by an international team of scientists and engineers, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) conducted the first unmanned Apo ...

June 12-13, 2014 -- Abilene, Kansas -- Obama, Sr. education program clouded in secrecy by Wayne Madsen WMR has uncovered formerly SECRET and Top Secret documents at the Dwight Eisenhower Presidential Library located in this boyhood home of the 34th President of the United States that reveal that the "Airlift Africa" scholarship program that brought Barack H. Obama, Sr. to the University of Hawaii in 1959 was clouded in secrecy. In fact, a number of documents on the program have been yanked from files dealing with "Education of African Students in U.S." and "Cultural Exchange, Training, and Education - Africa." Many of the documents originated with the International Cooperation Agency (ICA), the State Department forerunner of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). There are a number of references to Douglas Dillon, the Undersecretary of State during the final two years of the Eisenhower Administration and Treasury Secretary under President John F. Kennedy. Another prominent name found in th ...
(CNN) -- East versus West, capitalism versus communism: the Cold War lasted from the end of World War II until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Yet this war was at its height in the 1960s. That's the decade the Cuban Missile Crisis played out, the United States entered the Vietnam War to fight communist forces there, and President John F. Kennedy sent a team of Cuban exiles into Cuba's Bay of Pigs to try to overthrow leader Fidel Castro. Here are five other momentous events of the 1960s Cold War that you might not know: 1. The Soviets shot down an American plane and captured the pilot Why Russians are always the TV bad guys See inside a secret Cold War bunker From Sputnik to the Cuban Missile Crisis 1952: Eisenhower threatens nuclear action The United States had been flying U2 spy planes over the Soviet Union for some time to see if the Soviets were aiming missiles at America and to snap photos of local newspaper headlines. The CIA told President Dwight D. Eisenhower that its sophisticated aircraft, ...
C. S. Lewis, Aldous Huxley, and John F. Kennedy all died on the same day. Lewis is most famous for writing The Chronicles of Narnia, while Huxley is best known as the author of Brave New World. Both writers died the same day as the 35th President of the United States: November 22, 1963.

This is the late Ronald Reagan, president of the United States from 1981 to 1989 and worshiped by the Republican Party. A former actor, Reagan began his political career as the chairman of "Democrats for Nixon" in 1960 after denouncing Democratic Presidential candidate John F. Kennedy's platform as "Marxist." He condemned Medicare, which was supported by LBJ and forward-looking politicians from both parties, and warned that it would destroy freedom in America. Reagan vehemently opposed both the 1964 Civil Rights Act as well as the 1965 Voting Rights Act, much to the delight of white Southerners who embraced him as a "states' rights" hero. When he ran for governor of California in 1966, Reagan opposed open housing and insisted that landlords and neighborhoods had the right to discriminate. He made the kick-off speech of his 1980 presidential campaign in Mississippi and proclaimed his support for "states' rights" near the site of the murder of three Civil Rights workers -- two white, one black -- in 19 ...

On April 17, 1961, 1400 Cuban exiles launched what became a botched invasion at the Bay of Pigs on the south coast of Cuba. In 1959, Fidel Castro came to power in an armed revolt that overthrew Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. The U.S. government distrusted Castro and was wary of his relationship with Nikita Khrushchev, the leader of the Soviet Union. Before his inauguration, John F. Kennedy was briefed on a plan by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) developed during the Eisenhower administration to train Cuban exiles for an invasion of their homeland. The plan anticipated that the Cuban people and elements of the Cuban military would support the invasion. The ultimate goal was the overthrow of Castro and the establishment of a non-communist government friendly to the United States. Training President Eisenhower approved the program in March 1960. The CIA set up training camps in Guatemala, and by November the operation had trained a small army for an assault landing and guerilla warfare. José Miró ...
The Resolute Desk is a large, nineteenth-century partners' desk often chosen by presidents of the United States for use in the White House Oval Office as the Oval Office desk. It was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880 and was built from the timbers of the British Arctic Exploration ship Resolute. Franklin Roosevelt had a small door built for the gap to prevent people from seeing his wheelchair. Many presidents since Hayes have used the desk at various locations in the White House, but it was Jackie Kennedy who first brought the desk into the Oval Office in 1961 for President John F. Kennedy. It was removed from the White House only once, after the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, when President Johnson allowed the desk to go on a traveling exhibition with the Kennedy Presidential Library. After this it was on display in the Smithsonian Institution. President Jimmy Carter brought the desk back to the Oval Office, where Presidents Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and G ...
In Loving Memory of Archbishop Philip Hannan on his birthday. He was the former Archbishop of New Orleans.~ Hannan was one of two living United States bishops to have attended all four sessions of Vatican II, along with Raymond Hunthausen, Archbishop Emeritus of Seattle, Washington. During his 9 years as Auxiliary Bishop of Washington, and because of his skills as a press officer in both Baltimore and Washington, Hannan became acquainted with several prominent politicians, especially the Kennedy family. It was his familiarity with the Kennedys that would move Hannan into the national spotlight. Hannan was in Rome for meetings of the Second Session of the Second Vatican Council in November 1963 when news reached him concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, which forced his immediate return to Washington. At Kennedy's state funeral mass, Richard Cardinal Cushing, Archbishop of Boston, served as the principal celebrant. Cushing was a close friend of the family who had witnessed and blessed ...
back in 1962 Operation Northwoods (available under freedom of information) was a series of false flag proposals that originated within the Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States Government. The proposals, which called for the Central Intelligence Agency, or other operatives, to commit acts of terrorism in US cities and elsewhere, Operation Northwoods proposals recommended hijackings and bombings followed by the introduction of phony evidence that would implicate the Cuban government. It stated: "The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere." It was rejected at the last minute by John F. Kennedy. Change Cubans to A-rabs and the plan sounds kinda familiar?
Just One Vote If you ever begin to think, “I really don’t matter,” or if you think your church attendance on a Sunday night or Wednesday will go unnoticed (“Nobody knows if I’m there. I’m just one person”), consider the value of “one” How much is one vote worth? In 1645, one vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England. In 1649, one vote caused Charles I of England to be executed. In 1845, one vote brought Texas to the Union. In 1868, one vote saved President Andrew Johnson from impeachment. In 1876, one vote changed France from a monarchy to a republic. In 1876, one vote gave Rutherford B. Hayes the Presidency of the United States. In 1933, one vote gave Adolph Hitler leadership of the Nazi Party. In 1960, one vote change in each precinct in Illinois would have denied John F. Kennedy the Presidency (March Fang Eu, California Secretary of State, 1984). One person is important because the church is a body that needs all its parts functioning to be healthy (t Cor. 1212-31). III choose to b ...

Today's trivia: There has been a variety of weather conditions for the special day of the swearing in of the President of the United States, but when John F. Kennedy was sworn in on January 20, 1961, it snowed. It began snowing the night before and continued into the early morning on the day of the inauguration. Eight inches of snow accumulated, which was a problem for transporting the future president to the Capitol. The event needed to go on though, so the Army was called in and they cleared the snow on Pennsylvania Avenue quickly.using flame throwers.

Re-Sharing from Jackie Johnson.. A few facts or clues to anyone that might be interested. “A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget. Every businessman can keep a higher percentage of his profits in his cash register or put it to work expanding or improving his business, and as the national income grows, the Federal Government will ultimately end up with more revenues.”– John F. Kennedy, Sept. 18, 1963, radio and television address to the nation on tax-reduction bill. The Great Recession began in the third quarter of 2008 when the United States Government allocated over $900 billion to special loans and rescues related to the US housing bubble, with over half going to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (both of which are government-sponsored enterprises) as well as the Federal Housing Administration (which is a United States Government agency).

April 26, 1986: Maria Shriver marries Arnold Schwarzenegger. Almost a decade after they met at a celebrity tennis tournament, the television news reporter Maria Shriver marries the movie actor and former bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger on this day in 1986. Politically, it seemed an unlikely match: Shriver, then a co-anchor for the CBS Morning News in New York City, was a Democrat and a member of one of the most prominent political families in the country. Her mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, was the sister of John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy, while her father, R. Sargent Shriver, had been the Democratic nominee for Vice President in 1972. Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria on July 30, 1947, came to the United States in 1968 and became an American citizen in 1983. Soon after that, he began actively campaigning on behalf of Republican candidates; he would later be named chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports by President George H.W. Bush. Shriver, who was born on Nov ...

A short 149 Years Ago on this date, Abraham Lincoln died. With him died the hope that the United States had for a compassionate, healing resolution not only to the Civil War, but to the full integration of the Southern states back into the Union and the weaving of the newly freed slaves into the social and legal fabric of the nation. Racial hatred, in the form of John Wilkes Booth, along with a deep desire for vengeance against the South from the radical members of Congress, ineffective management of the Reconstruction period by Grant, and the eventual selling out of the county's black citizens by Rutherford B. Hayes, collectively led to a century of legalized segregation and all of the horrible pain associated with it. While segregation legally ended in 1964, the racial hatred did not. One can even argue that the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy were perhaps but an extension of the same hatred that felled Lincoln. How might things have been different ...

___ICBM and Nuclear Bomber Command During his 1974 impeachment proceedings, President Richard Nixon told reporters, “I can go into my office and pick up the telephone, and in 25 minutes 70 million people will be dead.” His statement was a stark—but completely accurate— description of presidential power. Since the invention of atomic weapons, the United States has had a presidential first-use policy: it was in place , but not yet codified into a single, formal written doctrine, during the presidencies of Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford, and then became codified during the presidency of Jimmy Carter in Presidential Directive 59, which has continued in force through the presidencies of Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and is in place today. Many people in the United States think of the country’s nuclear weapons as retaliatory “defense” weapons. But the first-use policy presumes what its name states, ...
~Many Presidents of the United States have visited the Central Illinois Area~ The Peoria Area certainly had a unique kind of politics and it was not by happenstance that so many of these famous men visited here. Here is what John F. Kennedy said about us when he was asked why presidential hopefuls and presidents visit Peoria. “It’s nothing to do with Peoria’s size. Peoria is a ‘sounding board.’ Not only does it have the right mixture of people for accurate political surveys, but next to Chicago it is in the center of a ‘Swing State.’” Peoria 1832: Three future presidents were in Peoria way back in 1832.

KENNEDY spoke again and again, during his brief and illumined Presidency, of the American Revolution and that it was imperative that the spirit and the values of our forefathers be carried throughout the life of the United States of America! And he was for Truth and Justice and Fearlessness! John F. Kennedy once declared, "WE SEEK A FREE FLOW OF INFORMATION...A NATION THAT IS AFRAID TO LET THE PEOPLE JUDGE THE TRUTH AND FALSEHOOD IN AN OPEN MARKET IS A NATION AFRAID OF ITS OWN PEOPLE!"

Who owns the Federal Reserve? Who actually owns the Federal Reserve Central Banks? The ownership of the 12 Central banks, a very well kept secret, has been revealed: Rothschild Bank of London Warburg Bank of Hamburg Rothschild Bank of Berlin Lehman Brothers of New York Lazard Brothers of Paris Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy Goldman, Sachs of New York Warburg Bank of Amsterdam Chase Manhattan Bank of New York (Reference 14, P. 13, Reference 12, P. 152) APFN.ORG The Federal Reserve, established in 1913 on Jekyll Island, (once a resort for the elite), is a most powerful, privately owned organization that is destroying and corrupting the United States of America from within in order to bring about a New World Order. So powerful, in fact, that we have had two United States Presidents assassinated in cold blood, and one whom they attempted to assassinate, simply becaus they desired to dissolve the Federal Reserve! Those three presidents were Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, and And ...
Commencement Address at American University, June 10, 1963Title: Commencement Address at the American University, 10 June 1963Date(s) of Materials: 10 June 1963Description: Motion picture excerpt of President John F. Kennedy's address at the 1963 commencement ceremony for American University held at the John M. Reeves Athletic Center in Washington, D.C. Complete text is found in Public Papers, item The ceremonies began earlier than expected, so the network cameras missed the first half of the President's prefatory remarks. In his speech the President asks the graduates to re-examine their attitudes towards peace, the Soviet Union, and the Cold War, famously remarking, "If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can make the world safe for diversity." The President also announces that he, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, and British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan have agreed to hold discussions concerning a comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty. Finally, he explains that the United States will not ...
Saturday was the day in 1910 that the Boy Scouts of America was incorporated as a youth organization in the United States. The Boy Scout Handbook says, "A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent." Among the many Americans who joined the Boy Scouts were Gerald Ford, Neil Armstrong, Alfred Kinsey, John F. Kennedy, Walter Cronkite, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Steven Spielberg, and Michael Moore.

Jan 20, 1969: Richard Nixon takes office Richard Nixon is inaugurated as president of the United States and says, "After a period of confrontation [in Vietnam], we are entering an era of negotiation." Eight years after losing to John F. Kennedy in the 1960 election, Nixon had defeated Hubert H. Humphrey for the presidency. Shortly after taking office, Nixon put his new team in place. William Rogers replaced Dean Rusk as Secretary of State, Melvin Laird replaced Clark Clifford as Secretary of Defense, and Henry Kissinger replaced Walt Rostow as National Security Adviser. In 1962, Nixon ran for governor of California and lost in a bitter campaign to Edmund G. ("Pat") Brown. Most observers believed that Nixon's political career was over at that point, but by February 1968, he had sufficiently recovered his political standing in the Republican Party to announce his candidacy for president. Taking a stance between the more conservative elements of his party led by Ronald Reagan, and the liberal northeastern wi ...
he presidency of John F. Kennedy and the Sino-Indian War prompts the United States to reach out to India and offer it both military and economic aid. Pakistan, wary of U.S. relations with its archrival, makes its displeasure known. President Kennedy had assured Pakistani President Mohammed Ayub Khan that if the United States decided to give India military aid, he would talk with Khan first. His failure to do so in November 1962 deeply offends the Pakistani leader. Khan also maintains, as do many Pakistanis, that in return for the use of Pakistani military facilities the United States owes Pakistan security allegiance in all cases, not merely in response to communist aggression. This is contrary to the thinking in Washington, which is unwilling to extend its commitments to include the defense of Pakistan in case of a war with India.
From "American Minute" for January 9th: Richard Milhous Nixon was born JANUARY 9, 1913. He was a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy during WWII, a Congressman, a Senator, and Vice-President under Dwight Eisenhower. He lost his first presidential race to John F. Kennedy by the smallest margin to that date. He was elected the 37th President in 1968, and re-elected in 1972 in one of the biggest landslides in history. He ended the draft, was the first President to visit Red China, sent the first astronauts to the moon - talking to them via radio telephone - and began the Space Shuttle program. He was the only President to resign. As Vice-President, Richard Nixon gave an address titled "The Meaning of Communism to Americans," August 21, 1960: "The major problem confronting the people of the United States...is...communism... The test is one not so much of arms but of faith... Communism denies God, enslaves men, and destroys justice... The appeal of the Communist idea is not to the masses...but...to an intelligen ...
Bay of Pigs Invasion On January 1, 1959, a young Cuban nationalist named Fidel Castro (1926-) drove his guerilla army into Havana and overthrew General Fulgencio Batista (1901-1973), the nation’s American-backed president. For the next two years, officials at the U.S. State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) attempted to push Castro from power. Finally, in April 1961, the CIA launched what its leaders believed would be the definitive strike: a full-scale invasion of Cuba by 1,400 American-trained Cubans who had fled their homes when Castro took over. However, the invasion did not go well: The invaders were badly outnumbered by Castro’s troops, and they surrendered after less than 24 hours of fighting. Bay of Pigs: President Kennedy and the Cold War Many Cubans welcomed Fidel Castro's 1959 overthrow of the dictatorial President Fulgencio Batista, yet the new order on the island just about 100 miles from the United States made American officials nervous. Batista had been a corrupt and ...
Kennedy's United States Notes were not borrowed form the Federal Reserve but created by the US Government and backed by the silver stockpiles held by the US Government. It represented a return to the system of economics the United States had been founded on, and was perfectly legal for Kennedy to do. All told, some four and one half billion dollars went into public circulation, eroding interest payments to the Federal Reserve and loosening their control over the nation. Five months later John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Texas, and the United States Notes pulled from circulation and destroyed (except for samples held by collectors). John J. McCloy, President of the Chase Manhattan Bank, and President of the World Bank, was named to the Warren Commission, presumably to make certain the banking dimensions behind the assassination were concealed from the public. As we enter the eleventh year of what future history will most certainly describe as World War Three, we need to examine the financial dime ...

WHY DOES THE MURDER OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY STILL MATTERS? Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal. - John F. Kennedy "There is no doubt now that there was a conspiracy, yet most of us are not very angry about it. The conspiracy to kill the president of the United States was also a conspiracy against the democratic system --and thus a conspiracy against you. I think you should get very angry about that." - Gaeton Fonzi, Investigator HSCA It matters because the murder of President Kennedy was not only a conspiracy but a true Coup d. Etat. The powers behind it, did not only come away with it, but took control over the new government and orchestrated the cover-up. These powers included some of the highest elected officials like President Lyndon Johnson and later presidents, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, former CIA director Allen Dulles, John McCloy and Arlen Specter. It matters because a coup ...
How can anyone understand the JFK assassination when they grew up on Ritalin and video games? CBBs stand tall against the sarcastic GENXers and Yers... Scanning the crowds of those in attendance at various John F. Kennedy assassination commemoration venues in Dallas it became apparent that those who continue to question the conclusions of the Warren Commission, that a lone deranged gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald shot to death the President of the United States in broad daylight on a crowded Dallas street can rightfully be called "Cynical Baby Boomers" or CBBs... It is also very apparent that many of those who deride us CBBs as "conspiracy kooks" and "JFK Truthers" are members of the post Baby Boom Generation X and Y crowd. These self-styled experts on all things 1960s is amazing when one considers that these debunkers were not even alive in the 1960s and were in diapers during the Watergate fiasco. The Warren Commission promoters -- and their defenses of the flummoxing report can be seen on such sites as ...
Yesterday, Nov. 22, was a down day. Fifty Years Ago I was a child of the wind and a disciple of nothing except making sure I lived life to the fullest. Then ... my world changed forever. Below is a piece I wrote for National Public Radio's Tales of the South. I couldn't re-read it yesterday; it's not any easier to read it today. The day hope died I pulled over to the side of the road just outside Cooper, Texas and started crying. It was past noon on this clear late November day and, despite my two passengers, I sat there in shock, bawling and beating on the steering wheel. John F. Kennedy, Young King of Camelot, was dead, the victim of an assassin’s bullet less than an hour from where I lived. I hadn’t voted for the 35th president of the United States; I had been too young. But he was MY president, of that there was no doubt. His youth and vigor, his fashion-setting and striking wife, his two cookie-cutter kids, his extended family of toothy relatives … they had become a part of the American fabric ...
President John F. Kennedy was gunned down in Dallas, Texas 50 Years Ago today. He was the most beloved President since Franklin D. Roosevelt. No President of these United States has since been loved as he was. My heart is still so heavy with grief over this horrible act. A world set upside down in a few seconds. The nation was in such shock. When I try to explain it to my children, I'm sure they don't grasp what I'm saying. I mean you're watching it on T.V., are so upset the first thing you want to do is tell someone, so you reach for the phone, but get a busy so then you open the door and run outside. Only, to see that your neighbors have done the same thing. They are openly crying, screaming and on their knees. I'm talking grief...shock that nothing can be compared to. Those of us who experienced this, know the "Warren Commission" is a bunch of bunk the Government would like us to believe. Witnesses were held back from testifying, evidence was not brought before them, deliberately. 50 Years Later, ...
John F. Kennedy was murdered November 22, 1963. The nation was traumatized, but how does that effect us today?? 1. Lyndon Baines Johnson became President - he perhaps the most personally and politically corrupt, and crude, men ever to hold that office. His bullying was also notorious. 2. Johnson was a quintessential Big Liberal greatly expanding the power of the Federal Government with numerous acts and programs, most unjustified and very expensive failures, such as the War on Poverty. This kind of Federal activism was continued by Nixon. 3. Johnson flat out lied us into the Vietnam War; his entire administration did as Robert Mcnamara, his Sec. of Defense, later said as he conceded they knew they could not win it even as they prosecuted it. The Tonkin Gulf Resolution of 1964 was the worst example and based on outright lies. 4. That war, along with his massive domestic spending, led directly to huge inflationary problems for the United States. 5. The Vietnam War resulted in many things including hundreds ...

Where were you? I was 9. Probably in the 4th grade. Living in the only world I knew, the almost utopian realm of the small, southern town. It probably wasn’t as perfect as I remember, but it was my world nonetheless. We were sent home from school early. What happened? I had no knowledge of John F. Kennedy other than the fact that he was The President of the United States and, therefore, my President. I’m pretty sure my town, given the political climate, was probably not pro-Kennedy but what did I know about political climate from the 4th grade? Or care. But that didn’t seem to matter on the 22nd of November, 1963. All the adults were very upset about a lot of things. First, the obvious and then the rumors (that I heard about later) of conspiracy and all sorts of sordid business. What was going on?! We watched Walter Cronkite of the CBS news choke up as he delivered the word that “at 2:38 PM, President Kennedy died”. Who knew the fallout or the timeline that would reveal the details and the ...
By Karen Grigsby Bates On the evening of Nov. 21, 1963, President John F. Kennedy, his wife Jacqueline, Vice President Lyndon Johnson and his wife, Lady Bird, walked through a wall of applause to take their place as honored guests in a Houston ballroom. They were making a brief stop at a formal dinner held by LULAC — the League of United Latin American Citizens — to show their appreciation for the Mexican-American votes that had helped the young president carry Texas in the 1960 election. The crowd eventually settled down to hear the President tell them that Latin America was not just a friend, but a partner in the peace and prosperity he hoped the entire hemisphere would come to enjoy. And to make sure they understood him completely, he grinned at the crowd: "I'm going to ask my wife to say a few words." Jacqueline Kennedy, dressed elegantly in a black Persian lamb suit and draped in pearls, stepped to the podium. Smiling, she told the audience how happy she was to be in Texas that evening — and h ...

History Kennedy family members break ground for the JFK Library. The Presidential Library system formally began in 1939 when President Franklin Roosevelt donated his personal and presidential papers to the Federal Government. At the same time, President Roosevelt pledged part of his estate at Hyde Park to the United States, and friends of the President formed a private, non-profit corporation to raise funds for the construction of the library and museum building. Following the example of the Roosevelt Library, all succeeding presidential libraries have been constructed with private funds. Private, non-profit organizations have been formed to coordinate these efforts and continue to provide support for presidential library programs. Once a presidential library has been constructed, the National Archives and Records Administration assumes responsibility for its operation and maintenance, in accordance with the Presidential Libraries™ Acts of 1955 and 1986. On September 20, 1961, President John F. Kennedy ...
Ingrate Oliver Stone's malicious view of 20th century America By ROBERT G. KAUFMAN / For the Register The Oxford Dictionary defines ingratitude as lacking proper appreciation and thankfulness. Oliver Stone personifies that definition. The incendiary filmmaker and author has made a fortune apologizing for anti-American tyrants while denigrating the United States. In his movie “JFK,” Stone defamed President Lyndon Johnson, conservatives and the CIA, groundlessly insinuating they were part of a conspiracy to kill President John F. Kennedy. Stone's film “Nixon” invented details of President Richard Nixon's life, distorted his relationship with Mrs. Nixon, wrongly implied that Nixon was an alcoholic and mendaciously assigned him an active role in U.S. plots to kill Fidel Castro. Oliver Stone speaks onstage at NYU's Tisch School Of The Arts' West Coast Benefit Gala, Oct. 28, at Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. GETTY IMAGES The fallacy of blaming America first runs rampant in Stone's “Un ...

JFK's image shines on despite contradictions BOSTON (AP) — Four days a week, David O'Donnell leads a 90-minute "Kennedy Tour" around Boston that features stops at government buildings, museums, hotels and meeting halls. Tour-goers from throughout the United States and abroad, who may see John F. Kennedy as inspiration, martyr or Cold War hero, hear stories of his ancestors and early campaigns, the rise of the Irish in state politics, the odd fact that Kennedy was the only president outlived by his grandmother. Yet at some point along the tour, inevitably, questions from the crowd shift from politics to gossip. "Someone will ask, 'Did Jack Kennedy have an affair with Marilyn Monroe?' With this woman? That woman?" explains O'Donnell, who has worked for a decade in the city's visitors bureau. Those asking forgive the infidelities as reflecting another era, he says. "It's something people, in an odd way, just accept." The Kennedy image, the "mystique" that attracts tourists and historians alike, did not beg ...
"The high office of President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American's freedom, and before I leave office I must inform the citizen of his plight." - John F. Kennedy "For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn't. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advance by the Council on Foreign Relations - One World Money group. Brilliantly, with great gusto, like a fine piece of artillery, he exploded that prepared "ammunition" in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people, and thus paid off and returned his internationalist political support." - Curtis Dall, FDR's son-in-law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father-in-Law "The UN is but a long-range, international banking apparatus clearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One-World revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power." - Curti ...

SYRIAL LOSERS September 11, 2013 Americans unsure what to think about President Obama's plans for Syria should remember that all military action undertaken by Democrats for the last half-century has led to utter disaster. (With the possible exception of the Village People's "Y.M.C.A." video, which I say still holds up.) Democrats are gung *** about deploying the U.S. military provided only that it will harm the national security interests of the United States, but vehemently oppose interventions that serve American interests. Republican President Dwight Eisenhower, the supreme commander of the Allied forces in World War II, said he could conceive of no greater tragedy than the U.S. getting heavily involved in Vietnam. He sent aid to the anti-communist forces, but no troops. Democratic President John F. Kennedy sent troops. But in short order he was conniving to assassinate South Vietnamese president Ngo Dinh Diem -- also known as "our ally in the middle of the war." JFK's brother, the Democratic attorney ...
WILL GOVERNORS & SENATORS EVER PRODUCE A PRESIDENT? If the ongoing defeat of Devolution persists, today’s governors and senators will discover that, far from providing Kenya with its future Presidential prospects, as in exemplary and longstanding American tradition, within two or three election cycles after 2013, they could well face the prospect of being voted out of their pioneering gubernatorial and senatorial positions. And both positions could thereafter be reduced to one-term wonders far into the rest of the century. In the United States over the past 237 years, 16 presidents were once senators, beginning with James Monroe (in office as President 1817-25) and John Quincy Adams (1797-1801) and including John F. Kennedy (1961-63), Lyndon B. Johnson (1963-69), Richard M. Nixon (1969-740 and Barack H. Obama (2009-and continuing). Seventeen US presidents were former state governors, beginning with Thomas Jefferson (in office as President 1801-09) and James Monroe (1817-25) and including in recent decad ...
Here's an interesting treatise on how we might reduce the number of deaths resulting from "gun violence." * In 1863, a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States. * In 1964, a communist-turned Democrat killed John F. Kennedy. * In 1983, a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan. * In 2007, a registered Democrat named Seung-Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech. * In 2010, a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killing 6 others. * In 2011, a registered Democrat named James Holmes went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people. * In 2013, a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School. * One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not. Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns. SOLUTION: It should simply be illegal for Democrats to own guns. Take the guns from Democrats and you've just reduced gun crime by 97%; an ...
The aliens have BEEN on Earth for many years, [and] made treaties and agreements with our governments; there are millions of them in secret underground complexes such as DULCE, New Mexico, which are responsible for the abduction of American children and citizens and the cattle mutilations documented in books and on TV, such as the recent special 'Intruders'. Civil War Is About To Begin In The United States Bill Holden, who also served as loadmaster for Air Force One, traveled with Kennedy to Europe in the summer of 1963. He said a UFO conference in Bonn, Germany, prompted a discussion of the subject aboard the President's plane one morning. Holden said he turned to Kennedy and asked, "What do you think about UFOs, Mr. President?" He said Kennedy became quite serious and thought for a moment before replying, "I'd like to tell the public about the alien situation, but my hands are tied." President John F.

“The last thing a fish notices about its surroundings is the water it swims in” - Lao Tzu "If someone smacks you in the face and you do nothing about it, they will smack you even harder the next time." - Eric Wickes We had a president named John F. Kennedy. Even though he was a bit of a philanderer who came from a rich family of dubious reputation, Kennedy was probably the last good president this country ever had. He actually considered the American people. He went after the Fed; he went after secret government plots to get us into a war with Cuba and he wanted to get us the *** out of Viet Nam once he saw what a big mistake it was. He supported MLK, Space Travel, and Human Rights. And his brother Robert should have been the next President of the United States because he went up against all other corruption, even at the expense of the FBI’s witch hunts. At that time the FBI was in bed with organized crime and denying all existence of it. So, he had to go as well. Johnson starts carpet bombing Sou . ...
There is no evidence that the original Bavarian Illuminati survived its suppression in 1785.However, writers such as Mark Dice,[11] David Icke, Texe Marrs, Jüri Lina and Morgan Gricar have argued that the Bavarian Illuminati survived, possibly to this day. Many of these theories propose that world events are being controlled and manipulated by a secret society calling itself the Illuminati.Conspiracy theorists have claimed that many notable people were or are members of the Illuminati. Presidents of the United States are a common target for such claims. A key figure in the conspiracy theory movement, Myron Fagan, devoted his latter years to finding evidence that a variety of historical events from Waterloo, The French Revolution, President John F. Kennedy's assassination and an alleged communist plot to hasten the New World Order by infiltrating the Hollywood film industry, were all orchestrated by the Illuminati. Novels The Illuminati (or fictitious modern groups called the Illuminati) play a central ro ...
Conspiracy for the Day -- December 17, 1993 "Kennedy and the Federal Reserve" (From an article entitled "Why the JFK Assassination [Investigation] Should Be Reopened" by Allen Salisbury. *The New Federalist*, December 6, 1993.) A book published in 1989, *Crossfire* by Jim Marrs, contains another bombshell. On page 275, in a section on who had a motive to have Kennedy assassinated, Marrs details Kennedy's fight with the Federal Reserve Board over U.S. monetary policy. Here, Marrs has discovered a bombshell: the powerful economic and financial motive the Anglo-American establishment had for violently removing John F. Kennedy from office. And, it would not be the first time a U.S. President had been assassinated for that reason. It appears that Kennedy was moving to end the Federal Reserve's fifty-year control over U.S. monetary and credit policy, as the leading edge of his attack on entrenched finance capital interests in the United States. According to Marrs, and confirmed by this author, Kennedy -- facing ...
Just a little something for you loyal Democrats. You vote loyally but do you know how they really feel. Lincoln freed you and the Dems have put you back on the urban plantation. Historical Perspective Lyndon Baines Johnson, a 'Dixiecrat' hailing from the great state of Texas, succeeded John F. Kennedy as the 36th President of the United States. During most of his tenure in Congress, spanning from 1937 to 1956, Johnson railed against every Civil Rights bill introduced by Republicans. Johnson quickly accepted the "writing on the wall" and realized, like his KKK Democrat predecessors in Lincoln's day, that the black vote must be secured. For a little background on the subject- After the Civil War, Democrats attempted to scare African Americans by using "Vote or Die" propaganda, designed to instill a sense of fear for those living in the southern states. Despite heavy opposition against the Civil Rights Act of 1957 by Democrats, including John F. Kennedy, Johnson was convinced that if his party could steal th ...
The term "Affirmative Action" was first used in the United States in Executive Order 10925 and was signed by President John F. Kennedy on 6 March 1961; it was used to promote actions that achieve non-discrimination. In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson enacted Executive Order 11246 which required government employers to take "Affirmative Action" to hire without regard to race, religion and national origin. In 1967, gender was added to the anti-discrimination list.[3] When will it ever be enough stop blaming race and stand up for yourselves you have had it as good or better than this old Hillbilly ever did.
Obama Asks Russia to Join in Reducing Nuclear Arms Fifty years after John F. Kennedy famously assured Europeans that the United States would protect them against a nuclear-armed Soviet Union, President Obama on Wednesday marked the changed times by calling on Russia to join him in cutting the world’s two largest nuclear arsenals to well below the level of the Kennedy era. Summoning the symbolism of his party’s most prominent Cold War president, Mr. Obama declared that he would use his second term to move further away from the days when the prospect of Mass Destruction dominated the security policies of both major powers. But in the process he set a goal that immediately drew skepticism from the Kremlin and Congress alike and could challenge his ability to realize his more ambitious priorities in the time he has left. “After a comprehensive review, I’ve determined that we can ensure the security of America and our allies, and maintain a strong and credible strategic deterrent, while reducing our de ...
‘Flight 800 investigators admit they lied about plane crash’.Seventeen Years Ago, the American people sat idly by when an airliner was downed in the waters off New York. In 1996, an airliner, TWA Flight 800, bound from New York to Paris w...ith 230 passengers mysteriously exploded off Long Island. Reliable witnesses said they saw a missile streak up from the ocean and hit the plane, then ascending at 13,000 feet. Former Press Secretary for President John F. Kennedy, Pierre Salinger, also a former United States Senator in his own right, contacted the FBI stating he had documentation that the plane had been shot down by the US Navy. From that day forward, Salinger was systematically ridiculed and destroyed, almost as though he were one of the lonely voices that stood against the invasion of Iraq or the tragic buffoonery of 9/11 and its aftermath. Flight 800 Yesterday, it was announced that investigators who had submitted the report debunking Salinger had come forward claiming they had been ordered to fa ...
Nearly 50 years to the day that President John F. Kennedy delivered his historic speech to a city divided by the Cold War, President Obama speaks to the people of Berlin about the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Germany.
Unearthed quotes on 2nd Amendment by some surprising people: 1. “I have never believed in the general practice of carrying weapons,” said NRA President Karl T. Frederick, a 1920 Olympic gold-medal winner for marksmanship who became a lawyer, praising state gun control laws in Congress. He testified before the 1938 federal gun control law passed. “I do not believe in the general promiscuous toting of guns. I think it should be sharply restricted and only under licenses.” 2. “We do think that any sane American, who calls himself an American, can object to placing into this bill the instrument which killed the president of the United States,” NRA Executive Vice-President Franklin Orth told Congress, shortly after Lee Harvey Oswald shot and killed President John F. Kennedy with an Italian military surplus rifle Oswald bought from a mail-order ad in the NRA’s American Rifleman magazine. 3. “There’s no reason why on the street today a citizen should be carrying loaded weapons,” said Californ ...
A MESSAGE TO President Barack Obama: Mr. President, this is a kind reminder that the Monroe Doctrine is an option must be utilized in the Caribbean Basin. The United States bought the Louisiana Purchase from France, Alaska from Russia , Virgin Islands from Denmark, and took Puerto Rico from Spain. The Monroe Doctrine, "The Monroe Doctrine was a policy of the United States introduced on December 2, 1823. It stated that further efforts by European nations to colonize land or interfere with states in North or South America would be viewed as acts of aggression, requiring U.S. intervention." The Monroe Doctrine was used by your predecessors: Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Ronald Reagan to name a few. Mr. President, The Doctrine needs to be revisited, and then need to include China and other sworn enemies of America. Additionally, there is this guy, Baldwin Spencer, who has aligned himself with China, and with the enemies of America. This sort of behaviour cannot go unchallenge ...
The Brave Heart 50 comes from a rich tradition of people facing adverse conditions and prevailing, often by walking long distances.  Here are a few notable examples of people who overcame immense challenges by walking: John Oxlee (1779 – 1854) English philologist who would often walk fifty miles to borrow books written in Hebrew and oriental languages. George Taylor (1803 – 1891) Scottish-born commercial gardener who emigrated to Michigan in 1855. Introduced commercial celery cultivation to the U.S.  Used to walk 50 miles from his boyhood home in the Scottish Borders to Edinburgh to purchase books—a trip that took him 14 hours. Macon Bolling Allen (1816 – 1894) African American lawyer and jurist.  In 1845, Allen walked fifty miles in order to sit the bar exam.  He passed the exam, in spite of his fatigue, and went on to open the first black law practice in the United States. Robert F. Kennedy was challenged to walk fifty miles by his brother, President John F. Kennedy, in 1963.  He completed ...
Harry Belafonte Belafonte's political beliefs were greatly inspired by the singer, actor and Communist activist Paul Robeson, who mentored him. Robeson opposed not only racial prejudice in the United States, but also western colonialism in Africa. Belafonte's success did not protect him from racial discrimination, particularly in the American South. He refused to perform there from 1954 until 1961. In 1960 he appeared in a campaign commercial for Democratic Presidential candidate John F. Kennedy. Kennedy later named Belafonte cultural advisor to the Peace Corps. Belafonte gave the keynote address at the ACLU of Northern California's annual Bill of Rights Day Celebration In December 2007 and was awarded the Chief Justice Earl Warren Civil Liberties Award. The 2011 Sundance Film Festival featured the documentary film Sing Your Song, a biographical film focusing on Belafonte's contribution to and his leadership in the Civil Rights movement in America and his endeavours to promote social justice globally.

All Life if Biology, All Biology is Physiology, All Physiology is Chemistry, All Chemistry is Physics, & All Physics is Energy. - David Icke "Ideas, unlike solid structures, do not perish.

For space science, like nuclear science and technology, has no conscience of its own.

đề thi khối D Năm 2011. Part 6 Read the passage and choose the best answer: In the United States, presidential elections are held in years evenly divisible by four (1888, 1900, 1964, etc.). Since 1840, American presidents elected in years ending with zero have died in office, with one exception. William H. Harrison, the man who served the shortest term, died of pneumonia only several weeks after his inauguration. Abraham Lincoln was one of four presidents who were assassinated. He was elected in 1860, and his untimely death came just five Years Later. James A. Garfield, a former Union army general from Ohio, was shot during his first year in office (1881) by a man to whom he wouldn't give a job. While in his second term of office (1901), William Mckinley, another Ohioan, attended the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. During the reception, he was assassinated while shaking hands with some of the guests. John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 in Dallas only three years after his electio ...
Now, where are we at, friends? THE SEVENTH SEAL JEFF IN 63-0324E It’s now been 40 years since Brother Branham’s 6th vision was fulfilled. We know that the Catholic Church came to power in the United States through the presidency of John F. Kennedy. He was inaugurated in 1961 as the first Catholic president. During his presidency, Mrs. Kennedy captured the imagination of the American public. She dictated woman’s fashion and culture, and remains to this day an American icon of style and beauty. Together, (spiritually and naturally) Mr. And Mrs. Kennedy personified the fulfillment of Brother Branham’s Sixth Vision. It is also important to remember Brother Branham identified Kennedy as “the pharaoh who knew not Joseph,” …a prominent role at the time of Exodus.

Now, the issue before our country is how to stop the killing of our innocent citizens. The pro-gun proponent thinks it is best to everybody and just let us defends ourselves. Well, I guess 236 years of progress has not taught us anything? Criminals could not control themselves and started shooting innocent people. So, we passed laws and for the most part it has worked. We also had public hangings where the public is taking a stand against these senseless killing. But, some lawmaker thought the murderer had the right not to be put to death in that fashion. Just give them life in prison, at the cost of the taxpayer. Now, that cost has gotten so expensive, the lawmakers thought it would be good to cut out what is paid to take care of the people who have a mental problem and closed many hospitals. High-profile assassinations were committed by a military style weapon. John F. Kennedy, Martin L.

TEXAS A&M UNIVERISTY The New Age of Social Mediums How Social Media Effects Millennial Vote Intent Dewey C Dodson 12/7/2012 POLS 209-902 Hyeran Jo 1.0 Introduction The political utilization of social mediums has occurred since the inception of our nation. President Andrew Jackson was the first to utilize the train as a medium to influence the vote choice of constituents deep in the western United States. President Roosevelt was the first to use radio as a social medium, when he performed fireside chats, in the late 1930s. As radio became obsolete politicians turned to a new medium, television, to influence the electorate. Both President John F. Kennedy and President Ronald Reagan where the first to successfully utilize television as an available social medium to influence vote choice. Furthermore, just as train & radio became obsolete so has television paving the way for a new social medium, social m ...
"For courage - not complacency - is our need today - leadership - not salesmanship. And the only valid test of leadership is the ability to lead, and lead vigorously.

'Good Guys With Guns' Will Not Stop Gun Massacres: 1) Not even trained law enforcement officials will charge randomly into a gunman scenario with weapons blazing when there are civilian hostages involved. In Alabama, it took days for law enforcement officials, including the FBI, to finally blast their way into Jimmy Lee *** doomsday bunker where he was holding a 5-year-old boy hostage. Should they have unflinchingly risked the life of the boy by storming the bunker on day one? It's difficult to know for sure, but clearly they delayed their rescue attempt because of the existence of a child hostage. 2) In the last 30 years how many mass shootings have been thwarted by "a good guy with a gun" in the United States? According to Mother Jones, zero. None. In fact, one in every five shootings at hospital ERs occur using a firearm taken from an armed guard. 3) Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy were surrounded by trained Secret Service agents armed with powerful firearms including, if you recall from the infam .. ...

Found this interesting review of the gun laws on the books or were on the books at one time. Washington (CNN) -- Mass shootings in 2012 reignited the debate over legislation to combat gun violence. Here's a look at laws already on the books in the United States dealing with firearms. 1791 -- Second Amendment: Congress ratifies the Second Amendment to the Constitution, which reads that "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." 1934 -- National Firearms Act: The law was designed to make it difficult to obtain especially lethal guns. These would include preferred weapons of the era's gangsters, like sawed-off long rifles or shotguns and machine guns. It also regulated specialty weapons concealed in canes, pens or other items. How the NRA wields its influence 1968 -- Gun Control Act of 1968: Following the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, ...
Reflections on 40 Years of Roe v. Wade By Jerry Newcombe 1/23/2013 On January 22, 1973, seven robed men in Washington, D. C. decreed that abortion on demand is the new law of the land in these United States. With the bang of a gavel, they nullified virtually any state law at the time restricting abortion. The high court decided Roe v. Wade without public debate, without the people's representatives getting to weigh in. And here we are, forty Years Later, still arguing about it. We live in what Dr. Richard Land calls “the Divided States of America.” Abortion is one of the most divisive issues. Associate Justice Byron White, appointed by John F. Kennedy, called this an act of “raw judicial power.” He could not and did not agree with Roe v. Wade and became one of only two dissenters. The other was William Rehnquist, who went on to serve as chief justice. Some lawyers agreed with the effect of the Roe decision (abortion on demand), but thought the case itself was poorly decided. Associate Justice Harr ...
Conspiracy theories – the fear of nonexistent conspiracies – are flourishing in the United States. Republican, Democratic, and independent presidential candidates espouse them. Growing political institutions (the Nation of Islam, the militias) are premised on them. A majority of Americans say they believe John F. Kennedy was killed not by a lone gunman but by a conspiracy, and a majority of black Americans hold the U.S. government responsible for the spread of drugs. O. J. Simpson famously beat his criminal rap by convincing a jury of a conspiracy theory: that the Los Angeles police framed him. Two young men, their heads spinning with conspiracy theories about Washington taking freedoms away from Americans, blew up a government building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 (including 19 children) and wounding 550. This suspicious approach even affects the actions of government. Legislation in New York State requires schools to teach about the Irish potato famine with the intent to show, as New Y ...
"Benjamin H. Freedman was one of the most intriguing and amazing individuals of the 20th century. Born in 1890, he was a successful Jewish businessman of New York City at one time principal owner of the Woodbury Soap Company. He broke with organized Jewry after the Judeo-Communist victory of 1945, and spent the remainder of his life and the great preponderance of his considerable fortune, at least 2.5 million dollars, exposing the Jewish tyranny which has enveloped the United States. Mr. Freedman knew what he was talking about because he had been an insider at the highest levels of Jewish organizations and Jewish machinations to gain power over our nation. Mr. Freedman was personally acquainted with Bernard Baruch, Samuel Untermyer, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Kennedy, John F. Kennedy, and many more movers and shakers of our times. "
This Monday, I will take and hopefully you will too; a few minutes to reflect on a man who gave the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf. When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lived and walked among us, although he suffered the slings and arrows from, both, racists and his own people, he was, truly, a man who was committed to equal rights, non-violence, and respect for his fellow men. It was Dr. King’s commitment to addressing these issues that laid the foundation for much of the subsequent civil and Human Rights progress, in the United States. We, have, all, been recipients of Dr. King’s selfless endeavors and should feel a sense of gratitude to this renowned equal rights icon. In the 1960’s, we were making significant small strides. After John F. Kennedy was assassinated, President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed a number of important bills. Just one month after taking office, he signed The Higher Education Facilities Act of 1963. The President, also, authorized several times as much college aid, within a fi ...
Every President ever assassinated, or there was an organized attempt, did something in direct opposition to the banks.. McKinley The Gold Standard Act of the United States was passed in 1900 (approved on March 14) and established gold as the only standard for redeeming paper money, stopping bimetallism (which had allowed silver in exchange for gold). It was signed by President William McKinley. Lincoln Greenback (money), a fiat currency issued during the American Civil War United States Note Demand Note, issued in 1861–62 Popularly called "Greenbacks," these federal dollars were first issued by President Lincoln when he was faced with usurious interest rates in the 1860s. Lincoln had FOILED THE BANKERS by funding the government with U.S. Notes that did not accrue interest and did not have to be paid back to the banks. [Web of Debt, p. 15] Kennedy President John F.

Chapter One The Boy In February of 1962, according to the Census Bureau, 318,090 people were born in the United States. These babies entered the world with the potential to be or do anything. In America, a land of limitless opportunity where citizens were encouraged to reach for the sky, no dream was too big, no ambition unattainable. Troyal Garth Brooks was born on the seventh day of February 1962, at St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In America's heartland, wheat grew tall, cowboys stood taller, and proud Native Americans kept the country's true history alive. Giant oil rigs gushed black gold, fueling the prosperity and peace that made dreaming possible. Two weeks after Garth's birth, John Glenn safely orbited the earth three times and President John F. Kennedy traveled to NASA headquarters in Florida to personally welcome him home. Meanwhile, back in Washington, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy was conducting the First Nationally televised tour of the White House. From suburban New Jersey to rur ...

Ugly Truth about American History: The wealth of Presidents of the United States has varied considerably, with one president (John F. Kennedy) possibly being a billionaire in 2010 dollars, while some others were not even millionaires. Most U.S. presidents before 1845 were extremely wealthy, including Andrew Jackson, who was born into poverty,[1] and George Washington, the richest of the period. Many of these early presidents were landowners, and some of them owned plantations, including their own slaves.
ALthough over the last few months I've been called a racist, a biggot, a liar, cold hearted, uninformed, not compassionate, ungreatful and I'm not listing the profanity I've been called. I have been utterly surprised by the low road friends have taken during this election but I still consider them friends. The people have spoken. Althought we can have debate I was taught and raised to support our Commander in Chief and our leaders. We live in the greatest country in the world. My hope is we move forward, end the devisiveness and bring back the America John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan built. "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." God Bless the United States of America.
When asked why they don’t vote, many Americans say they wonder if their vote really counts. Consider the following. Texas was admitted to the Union in 1845 by one vote. Hitler won leadership of the German Nazi Party in 1923 by one vote. The US House of Representatives, in 1801, elected Thomas Jefferson as President of the United States by one vote. In 1941, the Selective Service Art (the draft) was saved by one vote just weeks before Pearl Harbor was attacked. John F. Kennedy won the presidency by less than one vote per precinct Yes, one vote counts. Vote your values.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan (March 16, 1927 – March 26, 2003) was an American politician and sociologist. A member of the Democratic Party, he was first elected to the United States Senate for New York in 1976, and was re-elected three times (in 1982, 1988, and 1994). He declined to run for re-election in 2000. Prior to his years in the Senate, Moynihan was the United States' Ambassador to the United Nations and to India, and was a member of four successive presidential administrations, beginning with the administration of John F. Kennedy, and continuing through that of Gerald Ford.
October 12, 1992, 20 Years Ago: Governor Bill Clinton of Arkansas gives a speech in the Italian Market section of Philadelphia. Sensing victory in the Presidential election, now just 3 weeks away, he panders to the crowd by saying, "Every day that goes by, I feel more and more like Rocky Balboa!" Also addressing the crowd are Mayor Ed Rendell, Senator Harris Wofford, Senate candidate Lynn Yeakel, and... comedian Joey Bishop, who (as far as I know) had no connection to Philadelphia. But then, neither did I, aside from growing up 65 miles away, and I was there, too. In 1960, my father shook hands with Senator John F. Kennedy in Military Park in Newark, about where a bust of JFK now stands high on a pedestal. I had my moment, too, as the soon-to-be 42nd President of the United States grabbed hands while standing on the back of a slow-moving flatbed truck. I reached out with my right hand, he reached out with his left. He was having the time of his life. I understood how he felt.
Why did they stop putting U.S. presidents of the current United States currency after Ulysses S. Grant featured on the 50 dollar bill?? Cuz shortly after that, we figured out that John F. Kennedy was the REALIST president we ever had. Then he was assassinated (most likely by his higher power) and since then, we put a U.S. inventor on the 100 dollar bill, and stopped making new bills!!

"Incredibly naive or willfully misleading." That's quite an indictment of the Obama administration in the handling of the Libyan embassy attack. Senator McCain is quite correct. And how is this for ineptness... The FBI, as of today, STILL has not secured the consulate as a crime scene, the same crime scene CNN walked through and "picked up" the ambassador's personal journal. Who would want the Obama administration in office if a substantial terrorist strike in the United States were to occur again??? Bring back John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan--someone who knows how to conduct foreign policy. *** bring Bill Clinton back! Where is the embassy crime scene protocol? Why aren't Marines guarding the consulate? The crime scene is so contaminated now (16 days old?) that the U.S. Government looks weak, inept and UNCARING. If another of our embassies gets hit, will that property not be secured as well? Stay with the story that the attack was caused by a "video" that was anti-Muslim. Don't correct the er ...
