    On July 10, 1941, half the residents of Jedwabne, a Polish village 85 miles northeast of Warsaw, murdered the other half. The mob, led by the mayor, were Catholics; their 1,600 victims were Jewish, slaughtered over several nightmarish hours with bats, knives, rifles and other improvised weapons. Those who survived the massacre were then rounded up in a barn donated by a local farmer, which was then set ablaze. A plaque erected at the site blamed Nazis for the massacre, but, in fact, Nazis had only authorized it. Locals walked by the plaque for half a century, knowing the truth,...

    Okay, guys. Today was a bad day for us. No getting around the facts. It was the biggest gutting since the Kenyan scored a second term. In New Jersey, a senate seat that looked possible went to Corey Booker by about 10 points. Regards to Steve Lonegan. Excellent man who did better than he had any right to. He worked tirelessly against all the odds. Props too to Levin, Palin, and Rand Paul for campaigning on his behalf. Krispy was absent yet again. This loss is hugely overshadowed by the complete collapse of the GOP in Washington. It was a...

    No, a bunker will not save you from the apocalypse Everybody talks about the apocalypse, but almost nobody actually prepares for it. But let's say you're one of the few visionaries who actually plans for every eventuality. You've been stashing your supplies. You've built a personal bunker, or you've purchased your own spot in a communal "survival suite." When the apocalypse finally comes — possibly later this year — will you really survive if you're locked inside a bunker? (Answer: No.) Protecting against any 2012 scenario A thriving industry exists to offer structures that will defend against a variety of...

    Bill Keller: End may be near for monstrous North Korean regime By BILL KELLER The New York Times Published: April 30th, 2012 04:49 PM Last Modified: April 30th, 2012 04:49 PM The one thing everyone knows about North Korea is that we know very little about North Korea, except that it is miserable, totalitarian, nuclear and erratic. It is the hermit kingdom, the dark side of the moon. But thanks to many thousands of refugees who have reached freedom by way of a long underground railroad through China, we know a lot more now about the grim reality. We understand...

    In addition to reading from and discussing his recent book, author Nir Rosen will reflect on his 2011 sojourn in the Arab world, which took him to Iraq for three months. He also visited Yemen, where he was a witness to the beginning of the ongoing revolution and the people's struggle against the tyranny of the ruling regime. He is expanding on his research to analyze the factors fomenting the sectarianism and civil conflict that are brewing across the Arab world. Nir Rosen's Aftermath, an extraordinary feat of reporting, follows the contagious spread of radicalism and sectarian violence that led...

    I watched William Shatner's new TV show on the BIO channel last night. Bernhard Goetz was his guest on the show. For those freepers not old enough to remember, Bernie Goetz was praised as a hero back in 1984 for shooting four thugs threatening him on a New York subway car. AFTERMATH with William Shatner "William Shatner takes an in-depth look at what happens when people are tragically or infamously transformed from unknown citizens into household names overnight, taking viewers back to ... the dramatic events that dominated the American news cycle as he gains exclusive access to the newsmakers...

    "When a man dies, he does not just die of the disease that he has; he dies of his whole life." -- Peguy We stand, God willing, at the end of the Progressive Era in American politics and political thought. One way or another, the edifice will shortly come crashing down. The only questions that remain are whether a recognizable United States of America will rise from the rubble. Many Americans, however, will not. That's guaranteed. Our current political order does not resemble our Constitutional basis in any way. Every stricture of the Constitution has been abrogated. Most states treat...

    It was just the battle, not the war. So, let’s look at the facts. Let’s take a thread and really examine what is happening to us. “Why? I’m too tired, too disgusted, too ugh,” you say. It is OK to feel that way. This has been a hard emotional battle. We put time, effort, money, voices and everything into stopping this, but we lost only the battle. The Progressives may seem on the verge of winning it all, but they are not. Not really. They have put all their eggs in one basket and that is never a good strategy....

    HELMAND PROVINCE, Afghanistan, Jan. 28, 2010 – Ironically, when protestors in the Garmsir district here set fire to a school Jan. 12 in a fervor over allegations that a Quran had been desecrated, about 300 copies of the Muslim holy book burned with the school.

    The Telegraph ^ | January 16, 2010
    Haitian President Rene Preval said: "The damage I have seen here can be compared to the damage you would see if the country was bombed for 15 days. It is like in a war." The 7.0-magnitude earthquake that devastated much of the hilly coastal city on Tuesday also collapsed the elegant presidential palace and his own home. Authorities in Haiti, already the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, are saying they believe the death toll will be between 100,000 and 200,000 and that three-quarters of the city will need to be rebuilt.

  • Separatists in Puerto Rico condemn "militarized" aid to Haiti

    (English-language translation) The National Hostosiano Independence Movement (MINH) severely criticized the position taken by Puerto Rico Governor Luis Fortuño to subordinate Puerto Rican aid to the population of Haiti to orders from the United States Army's Southern Command. "It hurts that Governor Fortuño conditions our aid to the dictates of the Southern Command. The militarization of humanitarian aid to Haiti which United States President Barack Obama promotes is an attempt to have the United States Army save face, something that is worthy of condemnation from our point of view," MINH Co-President Héctor L. Pesquera said. "Brazil, Venezuela, Cuba, and the...

    Here is a video report on the plan for close to 10,000 U.S. Military Personnel to be on the ground in Haiti, or on ships just offshore by Monday. The speed with which everything can be put in place is being hampered there by the fact that the Port-Au-Prince Airport has only one usable runway, and there are so many planes needing to use it. An entire brigade of 3,500 from the 82nd Airborne is expected to be on the ground by this weekend to provide security in the devastated area. The Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Carl Vinson should arrive on...

The streets are described as being the "roads of the dead" as bodies are everywhere, with not enough room in the cemeteries to bury them all. . . . (VIDEO)

    AP via The New York Times ^ | Thursday, January 14, 2010 | Gregory Bull in Port-au-Prince and others
    Some of the dead in this shattered city line the roads, carefully placed garments shrouding their faces. Others are carried into the hills for quick burials. Hundreds are arrayed in a macabre tangle of limbs outside a morgue, just feet from the grievously wounded. The living and the dead here share the same space -- the sidewalks, the public plazas, the hospitals. The living are frightened of being inside in case another earthquake hits; the dead are everywhere. On the doorstep of a pharmacy, six bodies were lined up shoulder to shoulder. On the body of one woman, covered in...

    Desperate Haitians have set up roadblocks with corpses in Port-au-Prince to demand quicker relief efforts after a massive earthquake killed tens of thousands and left countless others homeless. Angry survivors staged the protest as international aid began arriving in the Haitian capital to help a nation traumatized by a magnitude 7.0 quake that flattened homes and government buildings. More than 48 hours after the disaster, tens of thousands of people have clamoured for food and water and help digging out relatives still missing under the rubble. Shaul Schwarz, a photographer for TIME magazine, says he saw at least two downtown...
