"He knows not how to rule a kingdom, that cannot manage a province; nor can he wield a province, that cannot order a city; nor he order a city, that knows not how to regulate a village; nor he a village, that cannot guide a family; nor can that man govern well a family that knows not how to govern himself; neither can any govern himself unless his reason be lord, will and appetite her vassals; nor can reason rule unless herself be ruled by God, and be obedient to Him."

- Hugo Grotius

In addressing the question of whether it is better to be loved than feared, Machiavelli writes, “The answer is that one would like to be both the one and the other; but because it is difficult to combine them, it is far safer to be feared than loved if you cannot be both.” As Machiavelli asserts, commitments made in peace are not always kept in adversity; however, commitments made in fear are kept out of fear.

I remember as a child in early 1963 a trailer or preview of a black and white film called ‘Party Girls for the President’. It was very risque for that time period.

The film never was shown, as I remember. So it was probably pulled from public viewing. Obviously lots of people knew the kind of man John F. Kennedy was.

I believe that “mentally disturbed” is part of the requirements for that post to this day.

"At roughly the same time as the Novotny affair, Kennedy and half the Senate were also conducting a fling with Ellen Remetsch, an East German Spy, who was noted for her oral talents."

“In 1998, President Clinton was impeached for actions he allegedly either took or ordered in an attempt to keep secret certain sexual improprieties he had committed with a White House intern.”

Uhm, no. He was impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors. His act of perjury undermines the process of truth finding in a trial. If Clinton had successfully perjured himself, Paula Jones would have been denied a fair trial, in which she was litigating for the the truth.

Interesting similarities to just about all DemonRAT administrations since that time. Coincidence?

Great site

Lots of interesting information and have not seen anywhere else

And with lots of links and references to investigate further, and look into all these interesting matters further.

Again, I recommend this site to anyone interested in history and the truth especially the history that has been covered up from the day it happened until today — for example, remember John Edwards? It is amazing what was covered up for that guy so successfully And for so long.
