    This article analyzes the history of labor union violence, and how Rep. Capuano's comments are a perfect continuation of this historical truth. Labor Unions: A History of Murder and Sabotage The New American 28 February 2011 The raging union-led protests in Wisconsin have resulted in many Americans taking a closer, more critical look at labor unions and their political clout and influence in shaping policy. With the ubiquitous announcement from AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka that he is granted an audience at the White House “nearly every day,” the American people have become more skeptical of unions and the role...

    NAMBLA-gate: The Strange Case of Kevin Jennings, Part One This is the real scandal—the degree to which the homosexual movement tolerates pedophiles in its midst and regards a champion of pedophilia as a hero. Harry Hay, who "inspired" Obama-appointed Education Department official Kevin Jennings to lead a life of homosexual activism, was not only a supporter of the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) but a prominent member of the Communist Party USA and "Radical Faerie" who believed in the power of the occult. Hay's influence is relevant not only because Jennings is a top Education Department official, but because...

    Martin Gross, Social Scientist and NY Times best-selling author, calls Obama, Congress, and mainstream media "masters of deceit" with no restraints and no conscience. "There is no responsible group in America taking care of the middle class." Gross reports what he was told when, on several occasions, he personally called the Bureau of Public Debt to question Obama's fuzzy accounting regarding the deficit. Video at site

    Before Katrina, Before Ike, Before Hurricanes Even Had Names The Great Hurricane of 1886 Helped Wipe Indianola Off the Map Above: Indianola, Texas With Hurricane Ike bearing down on the Gulf Coast of Texas, most people are unaware of a similar storm: the great hurricane of 1886. That storm hit not only the area known as Matagorda Bay but struck a blow to the dreams of the port city of Indianola, the "Queen of the West". When most people think of hurricanes and Texas, they think of such monster storms as Rita, Carla, Camille, or the great Galveston storm of...

    If thought Hurricane Katrina could destroy the city of New Orleans or the Great Galveston Hurricane of 1900 did to Galveston. There was another strong hurricane that hit Texas in 1886. This hurricane hit the town of Indianola, which is located on the Gulf Coast. It was a thriving port town, second to Galveston. Indianola was established in 1846 in Calhoun County. It was hit by a hurricane on September 15, 1875, which claimed hundreds of lives. However, it quickly rebuilt, but on a smaller scale. Sometimes in early August, a cluster of thunderstorms moved off the coast of Africa...

    An American Traitor: Guilty As Charged By Henry Mark Holzer and Erika | June 10, 2005For three decades Jane Fonda obfuscated, distorted and lied about virtually everything connected with her wartime trip to North Vietnam: her motive, her acts, her intent, and her contribution to the Communists’ war effort.  With the aid of clever handlers, she so successfully suppressed and spun her conduct in Hanoi that many Americans didn’t know what she had done there, and, more important, the legal significance. Three years ago, our book, “Aid and Comfort”: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam (McFarland & Co.), laid bare...

    In 1886, 4 storms walloped Texas11:32 PM CDT on Friday, September 24, 2004By SILLA BRUSH / The Dallas Morning News Florida residents can find sympathy in Texas history. If Jeanne strikes on Sunday, Florida will be the first state to get hit by four hurricanes in one year since Texas was pounded in 1886. That was one of the worst years on record, with three other Atlantic hurricanes hitting Florida, according to the National Hurricane Center. Hurricanes didn't have names back then. And the Saffir-Simpson scale that hurricane watchers use now didn't exist. But researchers at the National Hurricane Center...
