Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, reverend clergy, fellow citizens: We observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom -- symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning -- signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three-quarters ago. The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe -- the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God. We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans -- born in t ...

FACTS: March 21, 1947 President Truman signs Executive Order 9835 requiring all federal employees to have allegiance to the US
On June 7, 1950, President Truman, while addressing a convention of Lutherans in Washington, D.C., uttered these significant words: We are faced with tremendous responsibilities. We have become the leaders of the moral forces of the world, the leaders who believe that the Sermon on the Mount means what it says, the leaders of that part of the world which believes that the law is the God-given law under which we live , that all our traditions have come from Moses at Sinai and Jesus on the Mount. . . . . We have forces in this world that do not believe in a moral code, that even go as far as to say there is no Supreme Being, that material things are all that count. Material things are ashes, if there is no spiritual backbone for the support of those material things.
President Truman is always so kind in our exchanges, but the ghost of LBJ was very rude to me today. Think I'll stick with Harry.
67 years ago today - Winston Churchill's "Iron Curtain" speech at Westminster College in Missouri, introduced by President Truman. "From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the Continent." Churchill knew, as had Patton. ~ "The Sinews of Peace" by Winston Churchill I am glad to come to Westminster College this afternoon, and am complimented that you should give me a degree. The name "Westminster" is somehow familiar to me. I seem to have heard of it before. Indeed, it was at Westminster that I received a very large part of my education in politics, dialectic, rhetoric, and one or two other things. In fact we have both been educated at the same, or similar, or, at any rate, kindred establishments. It is also an honour, perhaps almost unique, for a private visitor to be introduced to an academic audience by the President of the United States. Amid his heavy burdens, duties, and responsibilities - unsought but not recoiled from - the President has travelled a ...
At Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, the John Findley Green Foundation lecture series was established in 1936 to present speakers of international reputation promoting an understanding of economic and social problems of international concern. On this day in 1946, spectators watched the motor cavalcade travel from the train station in Jefferson City to the college in Fulton, carrying the Foundation's invited speaker, Winston Churchill. His invitation had been endorsed by his traveling companion, President Harry S. Truman. They attended a private luncheon at the home of Westminster's president before marching into the crowded gymnasium at the end of the long academic procession. Introduced by President Truman, Churchill presented what he titled the Sinews of Peace address, advocating a strong continued alliance between Britain and the United States, stressing the need for tight controls on the development of nuclear science, and urging support of various United Nations peace efforts. However, it was ...
I strongly oppose the Nuclear Iran Prevention Act. This draconian measure will inflict far more pain on the Iranian people than on the regime. The bill's sponsors are essentially dreaming of forcing a popular revolution which would be succeeded by a pro-Western government. This is sheer fantasy. Before voting on this bill, Senators should read Steven Kinzer's book "All the Shah's Men" on the 1953 CIA coup against Iran's democratic president at the time, Mohammad Mossadegh, who had nationalized the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. Winston Churchill had tried unsuccessfully to persuade President Truman to oust Mossadegh; then, after Eisenhower's election, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and his brother Allen Dulles, who was CIA Director, were all too happy to comply. We destabilized Iran and then installed the Shah, who ruled with an iron fist. Iranians well remember this history and see U.S. policy as an assault on their sovereignty. Their nuclear program must be understood in this light -- as an assertion ...
At just 8 years old, Frank Isaac Robinson played piano and sang for President Truman. That's more than most people do in their lives.
President Truman had been keeping our allies, including the Soviet Union, informed of the developing alien problem. This had been done in case the aliens turned out to be a threat to the human race. Plans were formulated to defend the Earth in case of invasion. Great difficulty was encountered in mamtaining international secrecy. It was decided that an outside group was necessary to coordinate and control international efforts in order to hide the secret from the normal scrutiny of governments by the press. The result was the formation of a secret ruling body which became known as the Bilderberg Group. The group was formed and met for the first time in 1952. They were named after the first publicly known meeting place, the Bilderberg Hotel. That public meeting took place in 1954. They were nicknamed The Bilderbergers. The headquarters of this group is Geneva, Switzerland. The Bilderbergers evolved into a secret world government that now controls everything. The United Nations was then, and is now, an inte ...
28. Operation Paperclip: Operation Paperclip was the code name for the 1945 Office of Strategic Services, Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency recruitment of German scientists from Nazi Germany to the U.S. after VE Day. President Truman authorized Operation Paperclip in August 1945; however he expressly ordered that anyone found “to have been a member of the Nazi party and more than a nominal participant in its activities, or an active supporter of Nazi militarism” would be excluded. These included Wernher von Braun, Arthur Rudolph and Hubertus Strughold, who were all officially on record as Nazis and listed as a “menace to the security of the Allied Forces.” All were cleared to work in the U.S. after having their backgrounds “bleached” by the military; false employment histories were provided, and their previous Nazi affiliations were expunged from the record. The paperclips that secured newly-minted background details to their personnel files gave the operation its name. ...
President Truman fired Macarthur in April 1951and Roy recorded this in May 1951. Here Roy sings the praises of Macarthur.
We are sad to hear of the passing of Rex Scouten, who served as a Secret Service agent during the Truman Administration, and later served as White House Chief Usher from 1969 to 1986. Mr.Scouten accompanied President Truman on several trips, including Truman's trip to Wake Island to meet with General Douglas MacArthur, and on this trip to Key West, Florida.
GOD KNOWS EVERYTHING Wise Planning “Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”(Proverbs 3:6) Imagine Captain Ahab, rowing after Moby *** in a small boat. We would call him ambitious. But if we were to see him in that same boat, carrying a jar of tartar sauce with him, we would not only call him ambitious, but well-planned. He not only believes the impossible but carries out the preparation.In the days immediately following World War II, President Truman's administrator of the National Housing Agency was Wilson Wyatt. The war had caused a great housing shortage, and the president told Mr. Wyatt to "make no small plans." The administrator certainly took that advice.He announced a program to build 1.2 million houses in 1946, which would represent a 500 percent increase over the total for 1945. Naturally, newspapers and politicians attacked Mr. Wyatt's plan, saying it was a pipe dream. They offered reason upon reason why it would be impossible. By the end of 1946, the administ ...

1945, President Roosevelt died, and Truman assumed the Office of the president. Seventeen days later, Hitler commits suicide in his now famous bunker. Three months later the first Atomic Bomb is detonated in the Northwestern areas of New Mexico; one month after that Hiroshima is the first victim of the atomic Bomb, and exactly one week later the Japanese surrender. Through World War II, UFOs are sighted all over the glove. Some are the result of Hitler’s scientists, some are from space. Upon the wars end in 1945. President Truman was confronted with a new problem... crashed discs and alien bodies. In the next five years, the wreckage of 16 discs were recorded, 14 of them in the Arizona/New Mexico area. This posed the government two immediate concerns, one that they were in the same relative area where Atomic testing was taking place, and secondly that human body parts were found in storage inside the crafts. In 1948, a live alien was captured. EBE was a member of an alien race whose bodily functions we ...
Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency. In fact, there are now in effect four presidentially-proclaimed states of national emergency: In addition to the national emergency declared by President Roosevelt in 1933, there are also the national emergency proclaimed by President Truman on December 16, 1950, during the Korean conflict, and the states of national emergency declared by President Nixon on March 23, 1970, and August 15, 1971. These proclamations give force to 470 provisions of Federal law. These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily exercised by the Congress, which affect the lives of American citizens in a host of all-encompassing manners. This vast range of powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal Constitutional processes. Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; sei ...
LOOK BACK.67 YEARS AGO...2/12 ...1946 NEWS of the time...The Microwave Oven was invented by Percy Spencer. The US Army made radar contact with the moon for the very first time. In Buenos Aires, Argentina, Juan Peron was elected president. (I don't know how historically correct the movies "Evita" was, but it is still one of my favorites depicting that period in Argentina. I think Madonna was very convincing that she was Eva Peron). President Truman established the Office of Economic Stabilization. Dr. Benjamin Spock had a different idea when it came to raising a child. His book, "Baby and Child Care" has been a source of controversy ever since it was published. In ENTERTAINMENT... 1946 saw the first regular TV programming. "Faraway Hill" was considered the first soap opera to appear on television on the Dumont network. The network only lasted ten years (1946-1956). NBC broadcast the first major sports special. It was the heavyweight boxing match between Joe Louis and Billy Conn held at Yankee Stadium. Lo . ...
From Snopes - Origins: On 13 October 1948, President Harry Truman made an appearance in St. Paul, Minnesota, stumping on behalf of both his own re-election campaign and a bid by the mayor of Minneapolis, fellow Democrat Hubert Humphrey, to land a seat in the U.S. Senate. During that appearance in St. Paul, President Truman delivered an address at the city's Municipal Auditorium which was carried on a nationwide radio broadcast and included the criticism of the Republican Party referenced above: Today the forces of liberalism face a crisis. The people of the United States must make a choice between two ways of living — a decision which will affect us the rest of our lives and our children and our grandchildren after us. On the other side, there is the Wall Street way of life and politics. Trust the leader! Let big business take care of prices and profits! Measure all things by money! That is the philosophy of the masters of the Republican Party. Well, I have been studying the Republican Party for over 12 ...
02-06-2013 [Love] always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:7 Everyday Love If you walk through the doors of the Truman Library in Independence, Missouri, you can view artifacts and documents from some of the most consequential years in the 20th Century. In room after room, on shelf after shelf, you can research the end of World War II, the beginning of the Cold War, the rebuilding of Europe, the Korean War, and everything in between. Somewhere in that library, you also will find a collection of over 1,300 letters. These letters, however, have little to do with historic events of the 20th Century. They are, nevertheless, something extraordinary. You see, President Truman made it a point to write a letter to his wife, Bess, every day they were apart for any reason. Many of the letters are simple updates on minor things. Others, of course, do mention world leaders. But it's the sheer number of letters that makes the real impact. To see those letters all together is to ...
It turns out the fire-breath injured at the Chicago Lyric Opera a descendent of President Truman. So, it was karma for The Bomb?
CHOSEN Do you believe that Jesus is God’s One and only Son; that He carried our sins to the cross; and, that He suffered excruciating pain of both body and soul because of His Father’s rejection and physical death as our substitute so that we don’t have to fear God’s wrath? If so, before time began, God chose you to be His. He called you by Christ’s gospel and adopted you into His family through Holy Baptism. Because of His love you and I are motivated to serve Him. Too good to be true? So it was with me in military service. Training for Korea we were to be the 3rd wave, without hope of survival. While training in Hawaii, I was called to Captain Green’s office informing me that President Truman suggested I leave active military service to train men in the active reserves. I accepted. My fellow soldiers met their demise in Korea. Did I thank God for sparing me? I wasn’t attending worship. Why me? By His grace alone God directed me to Jesus Christ, compelled me to study His W ...

Gene Davis (August 22, 1920 - April 6, 1985) was an American painter known especially for his paintings of vertical stripes of color, and was a member of the group of abstract painters in Washington DC during the 1960s known as the Washington Color School.Davis was born in Washington D.C. in 1920, and spent nearly all his life there. Before he began to paint in 1949, he worked as a sportswriter, covering the Washington Redskins and other local teams. Working as a journalist in the late 1940s, he covered the Roosevelt and Truman presidential administrations, and was often President Truman's partner for poker games. His first art studio was in his apartment on Scott Circle, and later he worked out of a studio on Pennsylvania Avenue. Davis's first solo exhibition of drawings was at the Dupont Theater Gallery in 1952, and his first of paintings was at Catholic University in 1953. A decade later he participated in the "Washington Color Painters" exhibit at the Washington Gallery of Modern Art in Washington, ...
Supreme Court challenges President Truman's decision to take over the steel mills during the Korean War. (Youngstown v. Sawyer)
This one may be hard to swallow! Yo dam sure better try! :“The Secret Government: The Origin, Identity and Purpose of MJ-12″ by Milton William Cooper. During the years following WW II the Government of the United States was confronted with a series of events which were to change beyond prediction its future and with it the future of humanity. A stunned President Truman and his top Military Commanders found themselves virtually impotent after having just won the most devastating and costly war in history. The United States had developed, used, and was the only nation on earth in possession of the Atomic Bomb which alone had the potential to destroy any enemy, and even the Earth itself. At that time the United States had the best economy, the most advanced technology, the highest standard of living, exerted the most influence, and fielded the largest and most powerful military forces in history. We can only imagine the confusion and concern when the informed elite of the United States Government discov ...
I was watching the History Channel. During President Truman's Inauguration he stood out in the freezing cold while the inauguration parade went by. He said if the people that got me elected are out in the cold then he was going to be to. This President has opted to stay in a customized heated room while the people are out in the cold! Martin Luther King was one of my heroes He was a Southern Baptist Preacher that stood up for what was right and that everyone has the right to choose to be free. This President had done more to enslave people than any President in American History. He has destroyed what Dr. King stood up for. If he were alive today he would again march in protest to what this President has done! But then again since he was from the South he probably would kick his butt!

This morning I went to President Truman's old house on a family field trip. It's always cool to learn more about Truman. He's actually one of my heroes; even though he served as the President of the United States, he was still able to be humble and return to his normal, everyday family life.
The Cold War: The Atomic Age The containment strategy also provided the rationale for an unprecedented arms buildup in the United States. In 1950, a National Security Council Report known as NSC–68 had echoed Truman’s recommendation that the country use military force to "contain" communist expansionism anywhere it seemed to be occurring. To that end, the report called for a four-fold increase in defense spending. In particular, American officials encouraged the development of atomic weapons like the ones that had ended World War II. Thus began a deadly "arms race." In 1949, the Soviets tested an atom bomb of their own. In response, President Truman announced that the United States would build an even more destructive atomic weapon: the hydrogen bomb, or "superbomb." Stalin followed suit. As a result, the stakes of the Cold War were perilously high. The first H-bomb test, in the Eniwetok atoll in the Marshall Islands, showed just how fearsome the nuclear age could be. It created a 25-square-mile fireb ...
"If they do not now accept our terms, they may expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth. Behind this air attack will follow sea and land forces in such numbers and power as they have not yet seen and with the fighting skill of which they are already well aware." - President Truman Chapter 4: "Geschichte von Hass" (History of Violence) My life was flashing before my eyes...But a voice was keeping me alive...Long enough to stop my decent into the light. As my eyes opened It was so dark and as I came to, I heard distant screams of death. Where am I? Your safe now don't worry...She was like an angel but with sadness in her eyes. I tried to get up but I was so numb from the iced waters that I felt like I was dying. Don't move...Save your energy...As she caressed my head and held the lantern next to me for warmth. She kept me safe from the cold hands of death but at the same time the screaming souls of those that were dying within the water's cold gra ...
Dr. Mossadegh's fight for democracy in Iran. Recently I read "All the Shah's Men" by Stephen Kinzer. He came to the conclusion about the root of Middle East terror that started in Iran with the removal, by the CIA, of a Democratic, non-corrupt nationalistic, well-educated Prime Minister, Dr. Mossaddegh was a patriotic man who was physically weak, yet mentally strong. Remember, a British judge voted in his favor in the world court by nationalizing the oil, while an American judge voted against nationalizing the oil, during Eisenhower's administration. President Truman, who greeted him warmly, liked him. He was also loved by the American people and adored by Egyptian people as well. According to Mossaddegh's defense lawyer in the military court in Tehran, all he wished for was a democratic Iran, an independent Iran, free from the 'thieves'. My countrymen loved him one day and then betrayed him the next. He put his trust in them, not knowing his nation was used to a dictatorship, and they could not be truste ...
After a few days of rest and relaxation we are back in the saddle. Hopefully you had a great New Years and enjoyed U of L's big win over Florida in the Sugar Bowl. So, how about we get the week started with what happened on this day. In 1789, the first presidential election was held. In 1953, President Truman gave his final State of the Union address and announced the United States had developed a hydrogen bomb. In 1999, President Clinton's impeachment trial began in the Senate for lying under oath and obstructing justice. In 1782, the Bank of North America opened as the first commercial bank in the country. In 1948, Thomas Mantrell, a pilot in the Kentucky Air National Guard, crashed while in the pursuit of what he thought to be a UFO. In 1927, the Harlem Globetrotters played their first game, which makes this Harlem Globetrotter Day. If you haven't heard, they will be at Rupp Arena on January 19 and KFC Yum! Center on January 20. Have a marvelous Monday.

I've received this question/request. Any insight? I am an author writing a book about a World War II hero who was sent to the Basque Country at the end of World War II to train Basques against Franco. My wife is also a Basque. I'm hoping you might know something about this and can help me in my research. The hero was Rene A. Dussaq, who I believe had French Basque ancestors. Dussaq, a naturalized American, was in the OSS and had helped the Maquis against the Germans. They called him "Captain Bazooka." He was dispatched to the Basque Country as part of a deal, I believe, with the US in exchange for Basque help with Allied flyers. He was to teach certain war fighting skills to the Basques who hoped to free the country from Spain. But the US, after the training had started, reneged. It appears that President Truman decided that the US needed Spanish bases for the Cold War which was just starting and canceled the deal. Dussaq is dead. But I have spoken with his relatives and have researched his war records an ...
Forty years ago today, former President Truman passed away in Independence, MO, Read about his home and life: tinyurl.com/bonrma8
Interesting fact: After it was discovered that former president Harry Truman was living off his Army pension and little more, Congress passed the Former Presidents Act of 1958. The act was implemented to prevent former presidents from having to sell their names and the presidency to live comfortably. Truman believed that he "could never lend himself to any transaction, however respectable, that would commercialize on the prestige and dignity of the office of the presidency." When in office, President Truman made $100,000 a year. When he retired he lived off his pension from the Army. Reserve Colonel Harry Truman, Field Artillery, got retirement pay of $112.56 a month.

SUNDAY IS COMING: (LENGTHY BUT A MUST READ) A couple of years ago my nephew Ted had stopped by and we were on the internet looking up battleships and specifically spent some time researching the battleship “The USS Arizona.” Today more then a million people visit the sunken battleship each year. They file quietly through the building and toss flower wreaths and leis into the water. They watch the iridescent slick of oil that still leaks, a drop at a time, from ruptured bunkers after ALMOST 67 years at the bottom of the sea, and they read the names of the dead carved in marble on the Memorial's walls. I was blessed to be able to stand over the top of the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor just a few years ago. 2350 soldiers including 68 civilians were killed and 1178 injured in the attack at Pearl Harbor. Of the military personnel lost at Pearl Harbor, 1177 were from the USS Arizona.

President Truman--famously had a sign on his desk that said "The Buck Stops Here." It was a sentiment the American people respected, because it showed Truman understood an important truth. A leader is responsible not only for his own actions, but for the actions of his subordinates. DOES OBAMA fit this character or respect, honor and truth or does he.

Some good history here. One of my heroes.
President Truman and I are full and watching Archer. Happy Thanksgiving.
Some Turkey Day history. The turkey is a native of North America and Mexico. It was first domesticated in Mexico over a thousand years ago. The pilgrims at Plymouth most likely did not have turkey. Nor did they have the stuffing (the dearth of flour meant there was no bread to make it with), rolls (ditto), potatoes (most Europeans still thought they were poisonous), pumpkin pie (pumpkin and winter squash were served boiled), or cranberries (they'd yet to be introduced) that we now equate with the Thanksgiving table. What is known for sure is that in preparation for that first feast in 1621, Governor Bradford sent "four men fowling" after wild geese and ducks. They may or may not have returned with a turkey or two as well, and possibly a swan, but they definitely augmented their bounty by copious amounts of venison (Bradford was presented with at least five deer), cod, clams, and lobsters. Thanksgiving became an official holiday in the United States on October 3, 1863 via proclamation issued by President A ...

Good evenin'! Hope y'all had a good day today. Here's today's Texas history lesson courtesy of the Texas State Historical Association. Enjoy.and have a Happy Thanksgiving! November 21, 1945 On this day in 1945, national media attention was focused on the small community of Truman, Texas, in eastern Dallas County. The town was earlier known as Thin Gravy, Deanville, North Mesquite, and Mesquite Tap. In 1945 its 200 residents voted to adopt the name of new president Harry S. Truman. On November 21 a sign on U.S. Highway 80 was christened with a bottle of milk, and a letter of congratulations from President Truman was read. The Truman community was absorbed by neighboring Mesquite in the 1950s.
We should hold the same standard of our president as we do are militatary officers in charge of shops; military bases etc. If you did not know about it your incompetent ; and you should be fired; if you knew about and did nothing you be brought to justice. If you stride to cover it up you should be fired and brought to justice. As President Truman says "The Buck Stood Here!! IF WE FIND OUT THAT HE WATCHED OUR MEN DIE IN LIBYA AND DID NOT LIFT A FINGER TO HELP THEM HE SHOULD BE BROUHT UP ON MURDER CHARGES! HEAVEN HELP YOU WHO VOTED FOR RACE AND NOT FOR AMERICA!

False, Canada also celebrates a Canadian Thanksgiving the 2nd Monday of October... -The first American company to sponsor a Thanksgiving Day Parade was Gimbel's Department Store. The parade first took place in 1920 in Philadelphia ... -The word turkey can be sourced to the Hebrew word “Tukki”, which means “big bird or pheasant type bird”... - History recounts that the Pilgrims really didn’t wear funny hats as we see on them in re-enactments... -The Pilgrims ate their first dinner with only spoons and knives -Do you know what year the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade began? 1924... -The tradition to pardon a turkey each year and send it to a public farm named Frying Pan Park, in Herndon, VA began with President Truman in 1947... -Only 50 of the 102 original Pilgrims survived to participate in the first Thanksgiving, so accounts tell us... -The Mayflower was not buil ...

Can't believe how things work sometimes ... Just got a 120 on the president Truman
The Fact that in 1945 President Truman tried to justify the American actions taken against Hiroshima by calling the attack 'The Greatest Scientific Gamble in History': I find this rather appalling. Its historical events like this that makes me question where our Humanity has gone to... That even in they year 1945, people (Men in actual fact) were so hungry for power that they were willing to sacrifice over 20 million Japanese causalities ... for what? Nothing is as valuable as a life! I see now where we went wrong as people (or Men in actual fact) that we could actually find a event of that magnitude so entertaining... !... and another thing, I suppose having forefathers such as Truman are the reason why SOME not all men who have the tendency to follow the so called American way of living, you know, YOLO?? by treating woman just like Truman treated Hiroshima and Nagasaki!

Obama's Family Tree Has A Few Surprises Bush, Cheney, Truman Are All Distant Relatives SLIDESHOW: Openly *** Celebrities SLIDESHOW: Did You Know? Stars From Chicago! CHICAGO (AP) ― They fought leopards in Africa and for their lives on the American frontier. They served on the U.S. Supreme Court and stole from governors. They owned slaves in Maryland and cooperated with white oppressors in Kenya. Presidential candidate Barack Obama's ancestors are as diverse a group as one might expect for a man born to a mother from Kansas and a father from Kenya. Using interviews with family members and genealogists, a study of archives and records, and Obama's book, "Dreams from My Father," the Chicago Sun-Times has cobbled together biographies of 16 of Obama's ancestors, from the noble to the, well, not-so-noble. And his family tree has its share of surprises. Take, for instance, the distant relation to three U.S. presidents -- Harry S. Truman, George W. Bush and George Herbert Walker Bush -- as well as to Vice Presi ...

Slaves in GA created President Truman's favorite pie - Buttermilk Pie: You may have seen my post earlier saying we received our first holiday letter for 2012 today. This letter was from an old family friend, Mrs. Nelda Kent. Alhambra High School (Phoenix, AZ) alumni may know Mrs. Kent as mother of Larry and David. Mrs. Kent always includes a recipe in her holiday letter, and this year's recipe appears to have come from one of the Phoenix newspapers, probably the Arizona Republic. I tried to find it online to cite the source, but didn't find this exact article. Here's how it reads: "Valley resident Gary Tinsley shares a pre-Civil War Buttermilk Pie recipe: 'While serving in the Coast Guard, I came across an article by a U.S. Navy chief commissary-man assigned as President Truman's personal chef. His responsibility was to prepare the president's private state dinners on the presidential yacht, Iroquois. The chief made the same dessert every time, his family's Buttermilk Pie, a recipe created by his sl ...
“Truman's Fair Deal was his attempt to show that the liberalism of Roosevelt's New Deal was still alive. His Fair Deal legislation included several major points: new civil rights legislation promising fair employment practices, health care legislation, federal housing programs to eradicate slums, unemployment insurance, an increase in the minimum wage, and reduction in taxes for the poor.” The above statement was made by one of our great presidents (president Truman) Sure sounds a lot like what our current president is trying to do for every one!!!

GENERAL PETRAEUS: WHERE HE URINATES OR EJACULATES I DON’T CARE, BUT… Posted on November 18, 2012 by jcarroll I don’t think that a person who can’t get a piece of tail without getting caught is not smart enough to be head of the CIA, no matter how many stars he has on his shoulders or ribbons on his chest. President Truman thought all generals wore blinders like a mule, and most of them were as dumb as a mule. He thought that was a good reason for having the Commander-In-Chief a civilian. May be that General Petraeus should have followed General Eisenhower, and found himself a good-looking jeep driver; AND LEFT THOSE HIGH SOCIETY WOMEN ALONE.

Obama.Just GET over it! Just as an experiment, I Googled Obama Blames Bush In just a little over 1/3 of 1 second, Google showed "About 6,130,000 results (0.35 seconds)" How's that for the Blame Game? President Truman made famous the saying "The Buck Stops Here". Obama won't take the responsibility for anything...he always wants to blame the other guy.
In 1945, President Truman told a Medal of Honor recipient: "I would rather have this medal than to be the President of the United States."
A "Clique of Billionaires" (i.e. "gods") who believe in a "Master Game" are maneuvering the world toward a predetermined goal. Such a game can quickly be transcended if we remove the "belief system" where assumption displaces reasonable critical thinking. Also, to the Arab world the word "Freemason" is synonymous with the word "Zionist" which is also why Freemasonry has been connected with certain Jews and the concept of Communism. How many people realize that Germany, or the bankers supporting Germany, literally GAVE the United States the atomic bomb via "Operation Paperclip" as a means of threatening global communistic control by bombing Japan and scaring off the combined Muslim military opponents of Israel at the time which were Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq? Coincidentally, President Roosevelt was the 32nd President of the United States at the time as well as a 32nd Degree Mason during World War 2 who apparently did not want to bomb Japan and mysteriously died leaving Vice-President Truman a ...

W. Averell Harriman (Nov 15, 1891 – July 26, 1986) American Democratic Party politician, businessman, and diplomat. He was the son of railroad baron E. H. Harriman. He served as Secretary of Commerce under President Harry S. Truman and later as the 48th Governor of New York. He was a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1952, and again in 1956 when he was endorsed by President Truman but lost to Adlai Stevenson both times. Harriman served President Franklin D. Roosevelt as special envoy to Europe and served as the U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union and U.S. Ambassador to Britain. He served in numerous U.S. diplomatic assignments in the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. He was a core member of the group of foreign policy elders known as "The Wise Men."
Did you know? In a 1946 letter to the National Urban League (NUL), President Truman wrote that the government has "an obligation to see that the civil rights of every citizen are fully and equally protected.” He ended racial segregation in civil service and the armed forces in 1948. Today the Obama Administration continues to strive toward upholding the civil rights of its citizens, repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell, allowing people of all sexual orientations to serve openly in our armed forces.
AMERICA'S ATOMIC WAR The Real Reason America Used Nuclear Weapons Against Japan. It Was Not To End the War Or Save Lives. Atomic Weapons Were Not Needed to End the War or Save Lives Like all Americans, I was taught that the U.S. dropped nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in order to end WWII and save both American and Japanese lives. But most of the top American military officials at the time said otherwise. The U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey group, assigned by President Truman to study the air attacks on Japan, produced a report in July of 1946 that concluded (52-56): Based on a detailed investigation of all the facts and supported by the testimony of the surviving Japanese leaders involved, it is the Survey’s opinion that certainly prior to 31 December 1945 and in all probability prior to 1 November 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped, even if Russia had not entered the war, and even if no invasion had been planned or contemplated. General (and later pr ...
The lessons of Election 2012 - (1) Despite Citizens' United, the informed electorate of the country is not yet for sale to the Koch boys or anyone else, (2) At least two probable Supreme Court justices ( and a possible 3, 4 or even 5!) will be replaced by the former editor of the Harvard Law Review, and with superior choices like Mdm. Justice Sotomayor and not glaring mediocrities like Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, (3) Diplomacy will again be the guiding m.o. of foreign policy, and not knee-jerk reactionary mischief (i.e., "Brains before Bullets"), (4) Universal Health Care is now cemented into the American fabric - somewhere, President Truman is smiling, and next to Senator Ted Kennedy, (5) Marriage evolution took a major leap forward thanks to Maine, Maryland and Wisconsin with its first openly *** elected US Senator (in part, thanks to Kevin Stewart). Rock on., (6) Reefer Madness be damned, (7) For the second time in American History, US citizens just dumped the "Tea" into Boston Harbor. If the Re ...
From our nations earliest days, Gods promise in 2 Chronicles 7 that He will hear the cry of a humbled people has motivated Americas leaders to call citizens to prayer. In 1775, as it began the process of forming a new nation, the Continental Congress called for a day of prayer. at critical junctures during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln called for the nation to fast and pray. and in 1952, President Truman signed a bill establishing an annual National Day of Prayer. Second Chronicles helps establish a model of national spiritual renewal. the book recounts how a succession of righteous kings in Judah led to reforms that brought the people back to true faith in God. 2 Chronicles 16:9 assures us that God will show Himself strong toward those who place their trus in Him.
Manhattan Project The codename for the development of the atomic bomb during World War II. Warned by Einstein and other scientists about German research into nuclear fission, the USA set up a large research establishment at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, in August 1942, where scientists from Canada, the USA, and Britain, together with refugee scientists from Italy, Germany, and Austria, worked. These included the Italian Enrico Fermi, who had discovered the atomic chain reaction in 1934, and J. Robert Oppenheimer, who became the project's director. Within the scientific community, the project became legendary for the informality, collegiality, and innovation among its members. An atomic bomb was developed in a surprisingly short time, but the extent of its destructiveness was unknown until it was actually tested over New Mexico, on 17 July 1945. President Truman ordered the dropping of one of these bombs on both Hiroshima and Nagasaki, nuclear bomb called atom bomb.
Sometimes the least popular information is the truth. Joe McCarthy warned Americans. He was vilified and drank himself to death. Anyone know about the Venona Project? I doubt it. Decoding Soviet Espionage in America John Earl Haynes, Harvey Klehr Yale University Press, Aug 11, 2000 - 504 pages Only in 1995 did the United States government officially reveal the existence of the super-secret Venona Project. For nearly fifty years American intelligence agents had been decoding thousands of Soviet messages, uncovering an enormous range of espionage activities carried out against the United States during World War II by its own allies. So sensitive was the project in its early years that even President Truman was not informed of its existence. This extraordinary book is the first to examine the Venona messages - documents of unparalleled importance for our understanding of the history and politics of the Stalin era and the early Cold War years. Hidden away in a former girls' school in the late 1940s, Venon ...
If Harry S. Truman was alive today, he would be disgusted that there was someone in the White House not willing to accept responsibility for the lack of security that allowed interlopers to murder Americans on American soil. He would not recognize what the modern Democratic party has become but would surely be disappointed by its current leader’s values. In fact, the buck never stops at Obama’s desk. He is too busy blaming everyone else but himself. President Truman would tell The One he needs to learn how to man-up and accept responsibility.

Goood Friday morning, friends! Did you know that on this day in 1930 Dupont announced the first synthetic rubber? In 1947 Howard Hughes flew the "Spruce Goose" for 8 minutes in California. In 1948 President Truman defeated Thomas Dewey in the Presidential election. In 1962 Pres Kennedy announced that the Russians were dismantling their missle sites in Cuba. In 1983 Pres Reagan signed a bill establishing Martin Luther King Day and in 2003 the Episcopal Church consecrated the first *** Bishop in their church. Have a great day, my friends! Enjoy your weekends!
This Day in History-11/1-On this day, Griselio Torresola and Oscar Callazo attempted to assassinate President Harry S. Truman at the Blair House in Washington D.C. in 1950. Truman escaped unscathed. In the autumn of 1950, the White House was being renovated, and President Truman and his family were living in the nearby Blair House on Pennsylvania Avenue. On the afternoon of November 1, Truman and his wife were upstairs when they heard a commotion-and gunshots-coming from the front steps of the house. Indeed, the pair of would-be assassins had strolled up to the front door of Blair House and opened fire. They never made it past the entry steps, however due to the quick reaction of police officers and guards. White House police officer Leslie Coffelt was mortally wounded in the ensuing melee, but not before he managed to kill Torresola. Collazo was sentenced to death, but in an admirable act of forgiveness on July 24, 1952, Truman commuted the sentence to life imprisonment.
President Franklin Roosevelt wrote a letter to the king of Saudi Arabia saying the United States would never support an Israeli state. One week later, Roosevelt was dead. His death elevated Harry Truman, whose mother taught him to respect the Jewish people & so President Truman gave the OK for the formation of the Israeli nation. Harry Truman pulled an upset for the ages in 1948. God's promises on Israel are clear, he will bless those who bless Israel & he will CURSE those who curse Israel.
Proud to be from the great state of Missouri, the home state of President Truman! Here is one of my favorite President Truman quotes: The Republicans will try to make people believe that everything the Government has done for the country is socialism. They will go to the people and say: 'Did you see that social security check you received the other day - you thought that was good for you, didn't you? That's just too bad! That's nothing in the world but socialism. Did you see that new flood control dam the Government is building over there for the protection of your property? Sorry - that's awful socialism! That new hospital that they are building is socialism. Price supports, more socialism for the farmers! Minimum wage laws? Socialism for labor! Socialism is bad for you, my friend. Everybody knows that.' And here you are, with your new car, and your home, and better opportunities for the kids, and a television set - you are just surrounded by socialism! Now the Republicans say, 'That's a terrible thing, ...

On This Day. 1951: President Truman ended the official state of war with Germany, six years after World War II ended.
Does anybody have the book "Prompt and Utter Destruction: President Truman and the use of the Atomic Bombs Against Japan" by J. Samuel Walker that I could borrow for the next few weeks?! It would be greatly appreciated!
I am a former Chairperson of Democrats Abroad Israel, and in all of my 80 years have never before voted for a Republican for President. But this time around, I am not only proudly voting for Mitt Romney, but feel compelled to encourage others to do the same.
President Truman once said "if you want a friend in Washington get a dog". Today the Riley's put down our best friend for close to 12 years. RIP Annie Marie, a wonderful dog.
Huh I guess we shouldn't give any credit to President Truman either. Or what about Lincoln... Oh and how about Washington? You know since history shows that these men made challenging decisions during war even tho soldiers carried out the actions. People are so freaking ignorant man. Yea President Obama did not kill osama, the seals did. Its not like they were like " hey let's go do this by ourselves." I don't care who the president is, weather republican or democrat, I would have given them the respect, as well as the soldiers who carried out the actions, the credit they deserve.
Ah diplomacy, just talking right?... Hmmm "In the first two decades of the Cold War, there were a number of occasions during which a form of atomic diplomacy was employed by either side of the conflict. During the Berlin Blockade of 1948-49 , President Truman transferred several B-29 bombers capable of delivering nuclear bombs to the region to signal to the Soviet Union that the United States was both capable of implementing a nuclear attack and willing to execute it if it became necessary. During the Korean War, President Truman once again deployed the B-29s to signal U.S. resolve. In 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower considered, but ultimately rejected the idea of using nuclear coercion to further negotiations on the cease fire agreement that ended the war in Korea. In an about face, in 1962, the Soviet deployment of nuclear missiles to Cuba in order to try to force U.S. concessions on Europe became another example of atomic diplomacy. Yep gotta love diplomacy:)
We watched the third presidential debate tonight. CNN showed a snippet of black and white film with Kennedy and Nixon from 1960. We lived in Ann Arbor then and I do remember watching those debates. Then I thought back to an earlier time and the 1952 campaign. President Truman was on a whistle stop tour campaigning for Adlai Stevenson and the train came through Lansing. Pattengill Junior High students were dismissed in the middle of the day so that we could walk about 6 blocks down Michigan Ave. to where the Pere Marquette tracks crossed the street. I remember the train was headed west and and it pulled far enough so the caboose just cleared the street. President Truman stood at the back and addressed the crowd. I have no idea what he said, but if the object of dismissing school was to give a real life civics lesson, it worked. I remember it vividly after 60 years. Probably wouldn't have remembered anything learned in a class inside the school that day.
I want to say, have y ou heard the advertisement spoken by Morgan Freeman for Obama, in that ad, it says "every president has inherets challanges, some more than others, and then goes on to commend Barak Obama as tho he has faced more challenges than other presidents. Wow, that covers a lot of territory, including President Rosevelt, and Lincoln, Kennedy, etc, to me he cannot even be included in the same breath. Plus the many successful ventures of President Truman. I hear this ad about 10 times in 4 hours and it's like a brain washing tatic.
The latest polls show President Obama with a 5 point lead in Ohio. While Gov. Romney has cut this lead within the past month, time is running out for him to overtake the incumbent. No republican has won the White House without carrying Ohio. Dems should be singing-Beautiful Ohio. The latter is a perfect example of a swing-state. In 1944 Dewey with Ohio's John Bricker as his running mate, carried the state. In 1948 Ohio went to President Truman. Dewey had dumped Bricker for Gov. Earl Warren. Ohio went for Ike in '52 and '56 and for Nixon in 1960 and 1968.
Did you realize that President Truman called the Republican's economic policies "trickle down economics"? He correctly stated in 1948 that it didn't work. Funny how failed policies continue to come back, Reagan, Bush 1 and 2, and now Mitt thinks it will be the cure? Wake up America! Don't be duped!
President Truman occasionally would answer biographers' questions about his decision to drop the bomb on Hiroshima by offering this anecdote. At a meeting between himself and General Marshall sometime in July, 1945, the General outlined the final war plan for the invasion and occupation of Hoshnu. Marshall estimated the operation would take a minimum of three years and produce at least 800,000 American casualties. "But will it succeed?" the President asked. "It won't matter, sir," the General replied. "You'll be impeached." Even allowing for Truman's embellishments, I think this is a fairly astute analysis of the American public's tolerance for protracted wars. It has only been in the last decade that we, as a people, appear to have developed patience for seemingly endless foreign entanglements.
After reading David McCullough’s book “Truman” I personally believe that Harry S. Truman is the greatest president in my lifetime. So I would like to prove President Truman correct with this quote of his. Are you a Democrat? If so I could use your help especially financially. Now I know that I am not a minority or an illegal alien. I’m just an old white guy but I still need help so please respond on my page and I will share with you how you can work to help me out. I thank you in advance.
James Forrestal observed a famously punishing work schedule in the last years of his life, and rumors had circulated in the press as to his health. President Truman's decision to dismiss him as Secretary of Defense on March 31, 1949 is said to have caused him to suffer a "nervous breakdown", a charge denied by Forrestal's brother. Forrestal was hospitalized on April 2, 1949. "On May 22, 1949 he was found dead on the roof of a covered walkway below the window of a kitchen across the hall from his 16th floor room at the National Naval Medical Center (NNMC, commonly known as the Bethesda Naval Hospital), a bathrobe sash knotted tightly around his neck. This happened on the day Forrestal was to be discharged from the hospital. The news media reported that he had committed suicide." Yes, and Gen. George Patton? What an "accident" that was, near Mannheim.
For all our friends following along as Pam Rose shares her audio book about her life ... Here ya go ... ENJOY!! "Today in 1951 - U.S. President Truman signed an act officially ending the state of war with Germany. In honor of peace, and the brave men and women who risk their lives to maintain peace, I would like to share a personal story about one brave member of The Greatest Generation: My Uncle."
For those interested in our home town president.
1948: In the Spring of this year, the Rothschilds bribe President Harry S. Truman (33rd President of the United States 1945 – 1953) to recognise Israel (Rothschild owned Zionist not Jewish territory) as a sovereign state with $2,000,000 which they give to him on his campaign train. They then declare Israel to be a sovereign Jewish state in Palestine and within half an hour President Truman declared the United States to be the first foreign nation to recognise it. The Flag of Israel is unveiled. Despite tremendous opposition the emblem on the flag is the Rothschild, “Red Sign/Star Of David,” which angers many Jews who believe the, “Menorah,” the oldest Jewish symbol should be used. It is pointed out that the, ”Red Sign/Star of David,” used on the Jewish flag is not even a Jewish symbol, but of course as the Rothschild Zionists use it that is what ends up on the Rothschild, I mean Zionist, I mean Israeli flag.
General Konstantinovich Zhukov requested Coca-Cola make a version that resembled vodka, with the endorsement of President Truman devised a colorless version, it was shipped to Zhukov in special cylindrical bottles sealed with a whitecap and labeled with a red Soviet star. Really.
Interesting article in Time Magazine: Some might call it progressive socialism but I call it progress. (1) President Lincoln signs the Morrill Act in 1862 establishing Land Grant Colleges (2) President Roosevelt signs the GI Bill in 1944 (3) President Truman establishes the Commission on Higher Education in 1946 (4) President Truman signs the National Science Foundation which funds scientific research in 1950 (5) President Johnson signs a bill establishing federal student aid (6) President Nixon expands this program with the Pell Grant in 1972 These programs, like Social Security, cost tax dollars but they are worth it in my opinion.

Its funny they don’t teach you this in school, when the war-WWIII ended, guess who returned with the boys??? Why Old Man Depression did. And what did President Truman do? Why he wanted to start spending again to stave off a depression. However, the congress wouldn’t go for it. So they started spending on defense, because in the words of one of his advisors, “I never met a conservative who voted against defense.” In fact they even changed the War department to the Defense Dept. for PR purposes. The result has been socialism in uniform with an insane amount of the budget targeted to the Pentagon, even when the Generals and Admirals don’t want it. And so much of the equipment is useless, over budget or simply poorly constructed. You know the 400 million dollar Coast Guard cutter that is nearly useless in rough water, the under armoured personal carriers-coffins on wheels, the stealth bomber that proved incapable of hiding from Soviet radar, hey remember all those M16’s jamming in Nam…….The na ...
The "blame game" is as old as Adam. -Wasn't it Solomon who said "there is nothing new under the sun?" - (Ecclesiastes 1.9). Adam "blamed" Eve - "the woman You gave me.."- indirectly 'blaming' God!, Adam blamed Eve, Eve blamed the serpent, and the Serpent didn't have a leg to stand on! (ahh- the fickle flying finger of accusation!- what a handy thing to have! There is an American colloquialism known as "passing the buck." (I'd love to know "what buck" this came from!) but praise God for a true leader, and man among men who was willing to take responsibility for his own actions and behavior and as a daily reminder to himself, had placed upon his desk, this sign: "The Buck Stops Here." (President Truman). Maybe this would be the difference between a politician and a statesmen, or a Poser and a President, or a Loser and a Leader. Personal responsibility. - When Nathan place his finger ever so gently- on the exact right spot on King David's chest and said "Thou art the man"- (remember this?..) David did not ...
"The More Things Change...The More They Stay The Same." The Republican Party is still the same political party fighting like *** to protect those people at the very top of the economic ladder who don't need help from the government. Too bad, the Republicans can't be like President Truman who "gave em *** fighting for those poor and middle class Americans who needed help the most. President Truman held the Republican Party in such contempt in this statement he refers to the Republicans as "the other party." Tells you what President Truman thought of the Republicans and it wasn't very much. Smart Democrats of 2012 should feel the same way that President Truman felt about the Republicans back then. At least I know I share President Truman's sentiments about the Republicans and I hold them in contempt too!
Like president Truman said: We have to cut down on the cost of living! On the road (c)
President Truman was a great president
What is amazing is that what President Truman still holds true for today as it did, when he was President.
On this Day. 1950 - In the first airborne operation of the Korean War, 2,860 paratroopers of the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team jumped between Sukchon and Sunchon, 25 miles north of Pyongyang. Far East Air Force C-119s and C-47s transported the assault force and F-80 and F-51 fighters provided air cover. 1952 – Task Force 77 establishes ECM Hunter/Killer Teams of 2 ECM equipped aircraft and an armed escort of 4 Skyraiders and 4 Corsairs. 1952 - The destroyer escort Lewis was hit by shore fire off the West Coast of Korea. Seven sailors were killed and one wounded. 1955 - "No Time for Sergeants," starring Andy Griffith, opened on Broadway. 1962 - Major General Donald McGowan, the Chief of the National Guard Bureau and the other Reserve Component directors are given a Top Secret briefing in the Pentagon on the impending crisis following the discovery on October 18th of Soviet nuclear missile sites being constructed in Cuba.

In 1952- President Truman established a national day of prayer. In 1988 Pres. Reagan established that day to be the first Thursday in May. In june 2007 Pres. Obama states the USA is no longer a christian nation. This past May the same president cancells the national day of prayer @ white hs because he didn't want to offend anyone. If we think, as a nation, that we can make it without prayer we are in for a surprise. ancient history teaches us that. Is it only a form or ceremony?
Governor Romney’s eldest son made the news this week when he publically related his desire to physically assault our President. I fail to understand why a swift condemnation of his words was not forthcoming. Is it a generational problem? Maybe I am just getting too damned old and don’t understand how we do things in modern-day America. As a little kid, the assignation attempt on President Truman in which a White House guard killed an assassin before dying from his own wounds, didn’t really register on me. I was too young. Ten years later, my President slumped over in the Dallas motorcade and I, along with America, grew older. How many times have I seen that scene replayed? How do you put that image out of your mind? How do you blot out the image of our First Lady leaning over her beloved Jack as she valiantly attempted to protect him? Her blood stained dress…how can you forget that image. A generation later, my President again was wounded in a violent assault that left him near death and Jim Brady ...

I wonder, if I am the only person in the USA with a Truman attitude about this upcoming election in November. My attitude is a modification of a quote from former President Truman about the 1960 election. My quote "anybody would vote for the democrats go to *** .

◊ Islam in the United States It is almost impossible to generalize about American Muslims: converts, immigrants, factory workers, doctors; all are making their own contribution to America's future. This complex community is unified by a common faith, underpinned by a countrywide network of a thousand mosques. Muslims were early arrivals in North America. By the eighteenth century there were many thousands of them, working as slaves on plantations. These early communities, cut off from their heritage and families, inevitably lost their Islamic identity as time went by. Today many Afro-American Muslims play an important role in the Islamic community. The nineteenth century, however, saw the beginnings of an influx of Arab Muslims, most of whom settled in the major industrial centers where they worshipped in hired rooms. The early twentieth century witnessed the arrival of several hundred thousand Muslims from Eastern Europe: the first Albanian mosque was opened in Maine in 1915; others soon followed, and ...
On October 5, 1947, in the first televised White House address, President Truman asked Americans to refrain from eating meat on Tuesdays and poultry on Thursdays to help stockpile grain for starving people in Europe.
Just for the record, FDR inherited a 33% unemployment rate when he took office. It took him 3 terms and the New Deal to get it down to 17%. Then his vice president Truman had to follow it up to make sure the train of slow growth stayed on the tracks. FYI
Romney vs. Obama (Debate finally share common ground on one issue with the Obama apologists: The President did perform better yesterday as compared with his cadaver performance exhibited in the first debate. That being said, however, is a far cry from actually saying that he won the debate. Although his form was better, his substance was frail, weak and nonexistent. It has become very evident to the American people that Obama is not very comfortable and at ease when he is compelled to defend his failed foreign and domestic policies. He has experienced four years of a biased friendly liberal media which has been lobbying behind him and has sugar coated and promoted his blunder filled agenda. The real winners last night were the American people who finally witnessed firsthand their "leader" being unmasked, unveiled, exposed and desperately resorting to outright lies in a feeble attempt to save the election and the dignity (or lack thereof) of the pack of partisan hyenas subsidizing him. What does this say a ...
The democrat party has fallen a long ways since Harry Truman. This is just one of the things he has said (read the whole thing) "Amidst all this darkness, President Truman accurately discerned that America had only one hope to stay free. He said it this way: The fundamental basis of this nation's laws was given to Moses on the mountain. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days. If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in right for anybody - except the State." Wise words, from an American President!
It is difficult to pinpoint the precise date when exactly the idea of development studies emerged. Military historians tend to think it all started with the Marshall Plan in 1947 when the U.S. led the way for European postwar recovery. Other historians sometimes pinpoint the date to President Truman's inauguration speech of 1949 when he advocated a new social science be created to apply knowledge and skill to relieve the suffering of people. Others often pinpoint the date to 1961 when President Kennedy initiated the Alliance for Progress and the Peace Corps. Indeed, journals of development studies started appearing in the 1960s and 70s. However, most scholars will admit that "development science" as a science only emerged in the mid-1990s, despite some notable economists who jump-started the field of development economics (quantitatively and qualitatively) as far back as the 1950s. Various development theories have also been around since the 1950s, and since then, two major paradigms have emerged (H ...
Stewardship theologians have to be as balanced as the economists about whom President Truman famously complained, saying he wanted a one-handed economist because his economists' advice began "On the one hand … on the other." On one hand and then the other is the only way to do things" :P
Obama said THE BUCK STOP WITH YOU ( which means the american people. Well he has done it.). The saying actually goes THE BUCK STOPS HERE. Mean with government spending. Words from president Truman THE BUCK STOPS HERE.
Does anyone know what these three presidents have in common? President Truman, President Einserhower, and President Hover, FYI, these Presidents had the balls to rounded up all illegals and deported them back to their countries so our returning military had jobs to come home to!
"I Like Ike" I just watched a little mini-bio on Dwight D. Eisenhower. And I got to say I am feeling pretty good about him. Nothing new really, but it is impressive to see his major accomplishments all at once. Obviously he is a man with an impressive military record, but upon leaving the White House he warned the nation against the "military-industrial complex." He was diligent in his opposition to Communism, but he brought down military spending, and challenged the extreme methods of Joseph McCarthy, using executive privilege to prevent people in his administration from testifying in HUAC’s hearings. Some of his foreign policy decisions turned out to be problematic, but the mostly laudatory documentary didn't talk about that, and I guess will save that for another time. Before he decided to run, President Truman urged him to run as a Democrat. He declined as he favored the Republican Party, but during his campaign he disregarded the counsel of his advisors and campaigned in the Democratic South. ...
Do you all remember President Truman said "the buck stops here" Obama says "the buck stops over there" this is the leader some Americans want.
Got to talk to President Truman's eldest grandson and 2 Japanese survivors of the nuclear weapons used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The White House is missing its cornerstone. Any anniversary of the White House wouldn’t be complete without the story of its missing cornerstone. On that fateful day in October 1792, a group of freemasons met at a Georgetown tavern and paraded to the proposed site of the president’s mansion. In a ceremony, they placed an inscribed cornerstone to mark the start of the House’s construction. They then marched to an inn and made a toast to the event. And another, and another. In fact, they made 16 toasts! So no one really documented where the stone was. President Truman tried to find the stone during the renovation period, but no one has seen it since 1792. One theory is that is imbedded between two stone walls near the Rose Garden.
President Truman had a sign that said “The Bus Stops Here” Hillary Clinton said that the Buck stops with her. Her problem is: She is under the bus where OBama has thrown her doing her best to fight the pollution the OBama bus is throwing off
What Truman actually meant by "the buck stops here": "On more than one occasion President Truman referred to the desk sign in public statements. For example, in an address at the National War College on December 19, 1952 Mr. Truman said, "You know, it's easy for the Monday morning quarterback to say what the coach should have done, after the game is over. But when the decision is up before you -- and on my desk I have a motto which says The Buck Stops Here' -- the decision has to be made." In his farewell address to the American people given in January 1953, President Truman referred to this concept very specifically in asserting that, "The President--whoever he is--has to decide. He can't pass the buck to anybody. No one else can do the deciding for him. That's his job."

Hillary Clinton says the buck stops with her. With our present economic conditions, the buck doesn't go as far as it did in President Truman's day.
David Axelrod was on TV this morning and he is right. Obama is responsible for the murdered of our Libyan ambassador Chris Stevens and three other men. Seems it is just another "bump in the road" for Obama. President Truman is also right the buck stop with you Obama. Why the cover-up? Yep the blame for Benghazigate is all yours now Obama. Your cover-up really stinks! "Vice President Biden's comment that last week that "we did not know" about requests for more security at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, even after State Department officials testified about those requests." Why all the Lies Obama?
President Truman, who desegregated the military on July 26, 1948, launched a “Double V” campaign. He encouraged soldiers to remember that they fought in the hope of achieving two victories: once over their enemies abroad and once over racism at home.

"has invoked President Truman in his campaign. I knew Harry Truman. Todd Akin is no Harry Truman."
The sign "The Buck Stops Here" was on President Truman's desk in the White House and is often quoted by politicians; however, as is the case with most, it's more of a slogan of do as I say, not as I do. It is time to change that. Attorney Horace Edward Dean (D) is an embarrassment to Marion County, the State of Florida, the good and honest working men and women of the Sheriff's Office and to God (whom he invokes more like a political slogan than as a true man of silent faith). Attorney Horace Edward Dean, you are guilty of being an absentee Sheriff. You turned the reins over to a morally corrupt right-hand man (Attorney Dan Kuhn) that you and you alone vetted, picked and groomed. The dalliance among many (past and present - "Mirror, mirror, on the wall...") while pious in posturing among the blind Faithful who barely read let alone comprehend, has been an abomination. Horace, you may have won through back slapping and the abuse of power by turning the office into a non-stop political machine, but it has c ...

Letter my grandma has that's signed by President Harry Truman
Someone has suggested that the President is (among the myriad of charges made against him) a "war criminal" who should be removed from office, tried, etc. Now the charge of war criminal against presidents isn't something new. Trouble is, it's a complicated and difficult issue that goes beyond simplistic partisan feelings. For example: President Truman has been called a war criminal for the fact that, under his order, the U.S. became--and still is- the only country to drop nuclear bombs on another country. Hundreds of thousands of men, women and children died and/or were badly affected by those two bombs. Several years ago, when some survivors asked to meet Truman in Independence, he refused to meet them. A teacher in a local high school got into trouble for having a mock trial of Truman as a war criminal. In the minds of some he was. But there was never to be a prosecution. Many have called Bush and Cheney war crimimals. First, they used--at best-- poor intelligence while ignoring intelligence tha ...

October 5 is the birthday of Jonathan Edwards, born in 1703 in East Windsor, Connecticut. The Congregational minister’s preaching and writing made him one of the most important figures in colonial America. His famous sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” threatened doom for the unrepentant (“The God that holds you over the pit of *** much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect, over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked”) but also emphasized the transforming power of Christ’s love (“Christ has flung the door of mercy wide open, and stands in the door calling”). Edwards became an influential voice in the Great Awakening, the religious revival that swept the colonies in the 1730s and ’40s. Ministers with powerful preaching styles, such as George Whitefield from England, attracted huge audiences. Many established religious authorities, including Church of England officials, rejected the emotion-filled gatherings, but thousands of Americans listened spellbound. ...

Enjoying the political season? Today in 1947 President Truman gave the first Presidential speech on television! Now our canditates are on SNL, Letterman and The View.
President Truman, I believe, coined a phrase: "The buck stops here!" He held the ultimate responsibility for dropping those two bombs on Japan. And did not shrink from that responsibility. We can deride Mr Obama for continually "passing the buck" back to President Bush. HOWEVER, the Word says: "The buck stops" with every Christian who is called by God's name, who will humble himself and pray and seek God's face and turn from his wicked ways...THEN God will hear from Heaven, forgive our sins and heal our land.
On Oct. 4, 1945, President Harry Truman ordered the U.S. Navy to seize oil refineries involved in a strike that stretched from coast to coast. Some 43,000 workers at 11 companies were forced to strike in September 1945 over the owners' refusal to cut work hours and raise wages. During World War II, ...
Businessmen don't necessarily make good political leaders. In fact, if we look at the record of the presidents in the last 60 years who have been businessmen, the record is less than stellar. George W. Bush had a Harvard MBA and co-owned the Texas Rangers baseball team. After his tenure, the economy was in ruins. Jimmy Carter owned a peanut corporation. The economy was in a deep recession when he left office. Before him, the only business person was President Truman, who was a haberdasher (sold hats) and that was in the 1940s. Mitt Romney's business skills have benefited him and a few of his rich friends, but when he governs, the majority of people are left out.
I have made my political decision.I am going to write in a vote for either Ronald Reagen or Harry Truman. I am basing this soley on my Dad's French Lick Band played for President Truman at his stop at the hotel in 1948 and my SVHS Band played for Gov. Reagen at the hotel in 1972. I actually had a neat conversation with Preident Reagen about his time as drum major of his California high school band. For Vice President I am leaning toward legendary DCI announcer, Steve Rondinaro, for his great presentation to the marching band on Wed. See, I have my priorities straight!:):):)
The Presidents of the United States have called a special session of the US Congress, a total of 27times this was last done by President Truman in 1948.
Only 1 President left office with a lower approval rating than President Truman (President G.W. Bush), however, as history has played out, President Truman is now regarded at the 5th BEST President.
39 months of consecutive unemployment for the terms of President Truman to President GW Bush, while Obama chimes in with 43 months. His policies are a national clusterf&ck!
From president Truman to president bush there were 39 months where unemployment was over 8%. Under Obama's 1 term there have been 43 months of unemployment over 8%.

Edgar Hoover!
