    (Warning: Some readers may find some passages to be disturbing) "And here's to you Mrs. Robinson, Jesus Loves You more than you will know....whoa whoa whoa" At the end of May in 1968 I went into the kitchen, sat down and ate my breakfast before heading off to school hearing those words over and over again. Simon and Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson" was a hit song, at the top of the charts, being played on the radio in my kitchen and radios everywhere. It connected with me where I was, a child eight years old, with "dee dee's" and "dah, dah's",...

    The official anniversary of the Tet Offensive is January 30th, the day it began, but it was on this day that network television news (the cutting edge most important news source 50 years ago today) was able to bring viewers dramatic and startling footage of the Vietcong suicide attack on the US Embassy in Saigon. The attack came at around 3am Saigon time but there was no live video capability in 1968 from Vietnam. The films of the attack were put on airplanes and sent to locations like Hong Kong or Tokyo where they could be sent via satellite earth...

  • Did Ukraine try to interfere in the 2016 election on Clinton's behalf?

    07/13/2017 7:11:59 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 11 replies
    What are the claims about Ukrainian meddling in the election? Some conservative personalities within and without the White House have been talking a lot lately about the links between Ukraine and Hillary Clinton's campaign. Their relationship was exposed by Politico reporter Ken Vogel, who has since moved to The New York Times, back in January. But some on the right are talking about it again in defense of Donald Trump Jr., who has been roundly criticized for meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer in the hopes of getting dirt on Clinton from the Russian government. White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah...

    [I begin] with the story of a series of Socialist scholars conferences that Barack Obama attended when he lived in New York City between the years 1983 and 1985. And when I finally reconstructed what had gone on at these Socialist conferences that Barack Obama attended, I truly was amazed because what I saw was a kind of map of Barack Obamas entire subsequent political career. It was at this Socialist conferences in New York in the mid-80s that Barack Obama encountered the groups, the strategies, and the mentors who would guide him throughout his entire political career.

    Michael Sandford stopped calling his mother last May. He was in a foreign country, unemployed and living out of a car, but he had a plan. He had learned how to shoot a gun. He wanted to kill Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The autistic 20-year-old British man set out from California at about the same time his mother, Lynne, reported him as missing. In June, Sandford showed up at a Trump rally in Las Vegas. As the candidate spoke before a raucous crowd, the Briton moved close to the stage. He noticed a holstered gun strapped to a policeman's...
