In 1960, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev removed one of his shoes and pounded it on his desk during a speech before the United Nations. In 1964, the Soviet Union launched Voskhod 1 into orbit around Earth, with three cosmonauts aboard. It was the first spacecraft to carry a multi-person crew and the two-day mission was also the first orbital flight performed without spacesuits.

Historical Events, this day Wednesday July 9 In 1850, U.S. President Zachary Taylor died suddenly of cholera. He was succeeded by Millard Fillmore. In 1868, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing African-Americans full citizenship and all people in the United States due process under the law. In 1877, the first Wimbledon tennis tournament was contested at the All-England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club.

AUGUST 13, 1961 Berlin Is Divided. Shortly after midnight on this day in 1961, East German soldiers begin laying down barbed wire and bricks as a barrier between Soviet-controlled East Berlin and the democratic western section of the city. After World War II, defeated Germany was divided into Soviet, American, British and French zones of occupation. The city of Berlin, though technically part of the Soviet zone, was also split, with the Soviets taking the eastern part of the city. After a massive Allied airlift in June 1948 foiled a Soviet attempt to blockade West Berlin, the eastern section was drawn even more tightly into the Soviet fold. Over the next 12 years, cut off from its western counterpart and basically reduced to a Soviet satellite, East Germany saw between 2.5 million and 3 million of its citizens head to West Germany in search of better opportunities. In August, Walter Ulbricht, the Communist leader of East Germany, got the go-ahead from Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to begin the sealing ...
We Will Bury You without Firing a Shot Who knew 53 years ago when then Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev uttered these words, “We will bury you without firing a shot”, his prophetic proclamation would materialize amidst a cessation in apparent hostilities between the two countries. Just as Khrushchev presided over a system in which decisions came from the top and citizens were left to tremble with fear, thye same is true for the oligarchy Barrack Hussein Obama is attempting to establish in the United States of America! Doubt me, look at the way honest hard working Americans are being ridiculed and mocked as they attend the various town hall meetings and tea parties. According to high ranking Politburo member Nancy Pelosi these protesters are, “church-going rednecks attending the town hall meetings, and I've got to say they make me want to puke" President Obama is trying to make their lives better, and all they want to do is ask questions. Well, I've got your answers right here (grabbing her crotch), ...

Those who do not study and learn from the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them. Here's a letter from Allan West: Friends, Thirty-five years ago I was finishing up my senior year of high school and heading to my first year at the University of Tennessee. Something also happened that year — the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan and began the 10 year Soviet-Afghan War. If anyone had told me in 1979 that one day, 26 years later, I would be landing at the Kabul Airport in Afghanistan, I would have thought them crazy. However, history does indeed repeat itself for those who fail to learn from it. This past week, President Obama was in Europe displaying his failure to comprehend strategic level geopolitics. Europe has always been a battleground between East and West, between liberty and tyranny. The difference now is that we do not have resolute leadership such as President John F. Kennedy who went to West Berlin and stated, “Ich bin ein Berliner” meaning to say he was a citizen of Berlin (not a . ...

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.

Hey folks, you know how you LOVE Daffin's Chocolate Candies? You know how they're ridiculously delicious, high quality, and locally made? You know how all your FAVORITE varieties of chocolate bar are available for just a dollar each and how a lot of times HALF of that dollar goes to a fundraiser for a great cause?

PENDEJO MEETS PENDEJA Rumor has it that if Cruz runs for President in 2016, he might well pick Palin as his VP running mate. Only trouble is that neither this wanna-be "Old B 52" (Chairman Mao's nickname) nor the would-be Madame Jiang Qing (Mao's utterly hateful and repulsive wife) have a fraction of the stuff their humanly disgusting role models had. The result is they'd both look hilariously ridiculous together...! Maybe the country needs a comic relief, just so long as neither of these buffoons is allowed access to the Hot Button 'cause God only knows...! (Indeed, Chairman Mao was so insanely delusional he was one of the few people I know of who actually called nuclear weapons "paper tigers," believed nuclear war was "winnable" and as a consequence was prepared to put China and the rest of the world at peril for the sake of his foaming-at-the mouth ultra-militant line. He even criticized Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev when the latter sensibly backed out of a nuclear confrontation with the US during t ...
The 1960 U-2 incident was precipitated during the Cold War on 1 May 1960, during the presidency of Dwight Eisenhower and during the leadership of Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, when a United States U-2 spy plane was shot down over the airspace of the Soviet Union.The United States government at first denied the plane's purpose and mission, but then was forced to admit its role as a covert surveillance aircraft when the Soviet government produced its intact remains and surviving pilot, Francis Gary Powers, as well as photos of military bases in Russia taken by Powers. Coming roughly two weeks before the scheduled opening of an East–West summit in Paris, the incident was a great embarrassment to the United States and prompted a marked deterioration in its relations with the Soviet Union. Powers was convicted of espionage and sentenced to three years of imprisonment plus seven years of hard labor, but he was released on 10 February 1962 during a prisoner-exchange with Soviet officer Rudolf Abel Backgrou ...

Today's holiday Sept. 19 is "International Talk Like a Pirate Day," a playful holiday where people are encouraged to use common pirate phrases such as "Ahoy, matey!"

Jul 9, 1960: Khrushchev and Eisenhower trade threats over Cuba Previous DayJuly 9CalendarNext Day Jul 9, 1960: President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev trade verbal threats over the future of Cuba. In the following years, Cuba became a dangerous focus in the Cold War competition between the United States and Russia. Khrushchev fired the first shots during a speech in Moscow. He warned that the Soviet Union was prepared to use its missiles to protect Cuba from U.S. intervention. "One should not forget," the Soviet leader declared, "that now the United States is no longer at an unreachable distance from the Soviet Union as it was before." He charged that the United States was "plotting insidious and criminal steps" against Cuba. In a statement issued to the press, Eisenhower responded to Khrushchev's speech, warning that the United States would not countenance the "establishment of a regime dominated by international communism in the Western Hemisphere." The Soviet Premier's threa ...

HISTORY. GRADE 12 CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS. An Overview of the Crisis "Nuclear catastrophe was hanging by a thread ... and we weren't counting days or hours, but minutes." -Soviet General and Army Chief of Operations, Anatoly Gribkov The Cuban Missile Crisis was the closest the world ever came to nuclear war. The United States armed forces were at their highest state of readiness ever and Soviet field commanders in Cuba were prepared to use battlefield nuclear weapons to defend the island if it was invaded. Luckily, thanks to the bravery of two men, President John F. Kennedy and Premier Nikita Khrushchev, war was averted. In 1962, the Soviet Union was desperately behind the United States in the arms race. Soviet missiles were only powerful enough to be launched against Europe but U.S. missiles were capable of striking the entire Soviet Union. In late April 1962, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev conceived the idea of placing intermediate-range missiles in Cuba. A deployment in Cuba would double the Soviet stra ...
Crise de Berlin Reactivation de la base de Chaumont 16 Oct 1961 The 1961 Berlin Crisis became USAFE's first test of what was known as a "Flexible Response" strategy. In the spring of 1961, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev decided that the Soviet Union would sign a peace treaty with the East German government. In effect the German Democratic Republic would control the Russian zone of Berlin and could end joint occupation of the city. This action was a clear violation of the Potsdam Agreement of 1945. When the Western allies objected to this proposed peace treaty, Khrushchev began speaking about restricting the West's aerial access to Berlin and preventing the entry of East Germans into the city. This possibility started an exodus of Germans from the eastern zone as they rushed to leave their sector and relocate in West Germany. Departures snowballed from a few dozen refugees daily to a flow of 4,000 per day by August 1961. On the night of 12 August 1961 the Soviet backed East German government began erecti ...
It was great hearing an All-Star panel speak today at the JFK museum! Nicholas Burns (Harvard professor of International Relations), Adam Frankel (former Senior Obama speech writer), Marvin Kalb (veteran journalist and prolific author and founding Director of Harvard's Shorenstein Center at the Kennedy School of Government), Sergei Khrushchev (son of Former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev), and Frederick Kempe (president and chief executive officer of the Atlantic Counsel). What an evening!
Pretty funny! In honor of Mother's Day, here's a great letter from JFK to his mom, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, written after JFK learned his mom had reached out to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev without his knowledge. In the letter, JFK asks his mother to check with him in the future before taking it upon herself to correspond with heads of state, as requests like hers are "subject to interpretations." In response to this letter, Rose Kennedy wrote back, "I understand very well your letter, although I had not thought of it before. ...When I ask for Castro's autograph, I will let you know in advance!" (From the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Papers/JFK Library)
On May 7, 1960, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev revealed that an American U-2 plane had been spying on the Soviet and the American pilot was in Soviet custody.

Classical Pianist Virtuosa and Cold War Icon, Harvey Lavan Cliburn, Jr. (Van Cliburn) passed away quietly yesterday at his home at the age of 78, of complications from bone cancer. Richard Nixon's Ping Pong Chinese Diplomacy in 1971 was only eclipsed by Van Cliburn's Piano Diplomacy, when, as a 23 y.o., his performance in 1958 of Tchaikovsky's 1st Piano Concerto and Rachmaninov's 3rd Concerto at the First International Competition in Moscow, prompted then Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to declare "He is the Best", Give Him the Prize". I remember we were all glued to our seats, watching the performance on Television. - R.I.P.

Hearts throughout the world cry out for one thing...they want to live their lives in freedom. Here in the United States we are blessed to live in a nation that enjoys freedom. Our men and women have made great sacrifices throughout our history. Many have given their lives for this nation. We do not take these sacrifices lightly! Former president Richard Nixon was speaking at the dedication of the Ronald Regan Presidential Library years ago. He told the story about a meeting Regan had in Moscow with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. Khrushchev jabbed his finger into the chest of Regan. He said, "Your grandchildren will live under communism." Regan replied, "Your grandchildren will live in freedom." Regan believed that what he said was right but was not sure about what Khrushchev said. Yet...under the leadership of Ronald Regan, Khrushchev's grandchildren now live in freedom! Don't take your freedom for granted. Offer a prayer of thanksgiving each day. Be grateful for the freedom you enjoy. Pray for the nat ...
