    This week's feature is a classic western featuring cinema great and conservative Republican actor Gary Cooper. It's great to see him and Steve McGarrett battling each other 10 years before Jack Lord ever said "Book 'em Danno."

    You Tube ^ | 1958 | Wm. Wyler
    Today's feature is one of my favorite epic westerns of all time. "The Big Country" features a terrific cast and perhaps the most memorable western score ever by Jerome Moross. Charlton Heston is terrific in an atypically, unheroic role for him. Wm. Wyler was so impressed with him he cast him as "Ben-Hur" the next year. The lovely Jean Simmons is fantastic as well as the beautiful and intelligent school marm whose ranch is the centerpiece of the feud. Of all Gregory Peck's leading ladies, she's the one he had the best chemistry with. The scene where they swap horror...

    May 29, 2008 By Andrew Walden (Hawai'i Free Press) Nadhmi Auchi, seen here with the Governor of Illinois, Rob Blagojevich (middle) at a 2004 Chicago dinner in Auchi's honor arranged by Antonin Rezko (potentially, right)[1]. All three men have been convicted of corruption related charges (Auchi 2003, Rezko 2008, Blagojevich 2009).[2] “A British-Iraqi billionaire lent millions of dollars to Barack Obama's fundraiser (dual US-Syrian citizen Tony Rezko) just weeks before an imprudent land deal that has returned to haunt the presidential contender, an investigation by The Times discloses. The money transfer raises the question of whether funds from Nadhmi Auchi,...

    Officials Race to Destroy Samples A dangerous strain of the flu virus that caused a worldwide pandemic in 1957 was sent to thousands of laboratories in the United States and around the world, triggering a frantic effort to destroy the samples to prevent an outbreak, health officials revealed yesterday. Because the virus is easily transmitted from person to person and many people have no immunity to it, the discovery has raised alarm that it could cause another deadly pandemic if a laboratory worker became infected, officials said. As a result, health authorities were urgently working to make sure all samples...
  • How Goldwater Won

    Human Events | November 24, 1958
    How Goldwater Won From special coverage in Arizona, HUMAN EVENTS is able to reconstruct the modus operandi of the Goldwater campaign. The young Senator's victory over his well-financed and backed opponent Governor Ernest McFarland, emerges as the outstanding exploit of the Republicans in an otherwise dreary election result. Goldwater ran on a thoroughly conservative platform and record, and in no way dodged issues or resorted to me-tooism or conpromises. He demonstrated that he was no coattail rider when he did not, as did others, cry to Ike [President Dwight D. Eisenhower] for help. In a state with a preponderant...

    The Davis Plan and Connections to Obama In 1963, while serving in Navy Intelligence (from 1958-1967), I read the FBI file on Frank Marshall Davis. He had outlined the Communist plan to take over America from within, by installing educators at all levels of our educational system, gaining control of the media, getting Liberal judges appointed, recruiting, training and backing people to be elected to public office. I have researched every piece of legislation I can find that the Liberal Democrats have passed since the early sixties, and if you will research for yourself, you will find that they have...

    Much has been made of 1968 — the student uprisings in Paris, the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, the full flowering of youth culture. But what of its more unassuming antecedent, 1958? Fifty years ago, Eisenhower was in the White House, the country was in a recession and the American intellectual scene was crackling with energy. The year saw the advent of everything from Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode” and Dr. Seuss’ “Yertle the Turtle” to “Doctor Zhivago” by Boris Pasternak, that year’s Nobel laureate in literature; the first American edition of Vladimir Nabokov’s “Lolita”; Truman...

    The government of Iraq is secretly holding a Baathist cabal of military officers it claims attempted a coup against Prime Minister al-Maliki. The plotters were rounded up July 5 with the help of American military authorities after the Iraqi government's security warning center sent word to Mr. Maliki, who was in Kuwait on his first official visit as head of state, two highly placed Iraqi sources said. The prime minister quickly canceled a scheduled trip to Amman, Jordan, and returned to Baghdad to attend to the matter. At the time, Mr. Maliki's staff told reporters that the prime minister was...

    HER dusty file was one of hundreds of thousands of documents stacked in a house in a wealthy neighbourhood of Baghdad. Asma Rasheed married a pilot, lived comfortably in the presidential compound of Saddam Hussein and directed a microbiology programme that was not supposed to exist. Rasheed’s light blue folder has emerged from a huge archive seized by forces loyal to Ahmed Chalabi, the leader of the Iraqi National Congress, which opposed Saddam. The archive — a dark who’s who of Iraq — reveals the tiniest details of blandishments and humiliations by a paranoid regime that shared the Nazis’ obsession...

    Need help! In the past couple of weeks, a Freeper posted some information regarding the goals and strategies of communism. The excerpt was from a book written by an FBI agent and part of a report to Congress in 1958? It was incredible...like a prophecy that's coming true. Thought I'd saved it, but, alas, I did not. Any help would be appreciated.

    'Tybee bomb' quest Military to study site Statesboro duo believes bomb rests By LOGAN THOMAS lthomas@statesboroherald.net On a clear and frigid February night lit by a full moon in 1958, the air space above the border of Screven and Bulloch counties was the site of a midair collision. An Air Force B-47 carrying a Mk-15 nuclear bomb collided with a F-86 just after midnight. The fighter pilot ejected and his plane plummeted 35,000 feet to crash in a Bulloch County farmer's field. Howard Richardson, the pilot of the damaged bomber, turned the aircraft back toward Savannah for a landing attempt....
