  • Main Street versus Wall Street - a tale from 1933

    The Great Depression - A Diary | 2009 | Benjamin Roth
    As I'm reading this book, I came upon this tidbit: "Political activist Eugene S. Daniell Jr., who later served as a nine-term state representative in New Hampshire, set off two tear-gas bombs near the ventilation system of the New York Stock Exchange in August of 1933 to protest the imbalance of wealth between those on Wall Street and the rest of the country during the Depression. Daniell served thirty days in jail for the disruption."

    Townhall ^ | September 30, 2007 | Ann Coulter
    The following is an excerpt from Ann Coulter's new book, If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans Uttering lines that send liberals into paroxysms of rage, otherwise known as “citing facts,” is the spice of life. When I see the hot spittle flying from their mouths and the veins bulging and pulsing above their eyes, well, that’s when I feel truly alive. This happens, I dearly hope, once a week when my column is released. But the public gnashing of teeth that I incite occurs approximately every six to eight months, which is rather peculiar, since I believe I...

    GODLESS: The Church of Liberalism, Chapter One On the Seventh Day, God Rested and Liberal Schemed They exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator. . . . Therefore, God gave them up to passions of dishonor; for their females exchanged the natural use for that which is contrary to nature.—Romans 1:25–26 Liberals love to boast that they are not “religious,” which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. Of course liberalism is a religion. It has its own cosmology, its own miracles, its own beliefs...

    WASHINGTON — The New York Times is under fire for not disclosing that a front-page story on domestic spying by the National Security Agency was excerpted from a future book by the reporter. Media watchdogs questioned the timing of the article.... The Times said it held James Risen's story a year over White House fears of endangering ongoing probes. But what it didn't write in yesterday's article or in a follow-up statement by editor Bill Keller was that Risen had written a book scheduled to hit stores in January. Internet columnist Matt Drudge noted that Risen turned in the manuscript...

    God sent the human race what I call good dreams: I mean those queer stories scattered all through the heathen religions about a god who dies and comes to life again and, by his death, has somehow given new life to men. He also selected one particular people and spent several centuries hammering into their heads the sort of God He was — that there was only one of Him and that He cared about right conduct. Those people were the Jews, and the Old Testament gives an account of the hammering process. Then comes the real shock. Among these...

George Bush reckoned the biggest security issues he would face would be national missile defence and Iraq. "I told him that, based on the last eight years, I thought his biggest security problems, in order, would be Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida; the absence of peace in the Middle East; the standoff between nuclear powers India and Pakistan, and the ties of the Pakistanis to the Taliban and al-Qaida; North Korea; and then Iraq."...

That was former president Jimmy Carter's word for the final days of the Clinton administration.

If the Clinton administration was the most corrupt in American history, here was its most obscenely corrupt moment....

    THE BIBLICAL STORY OF Samson and Delilah is familiar (Judges 16:4-30). Delilah deceives her husband, Samson. She betrays him to her people, the Philistines, who are the enemies of the Israelites. The Philistines put out Samson's eyes and rob him of the source of his strength by cutting his hair. Samson repents of his sin, his hair grows back, and he regains his strength. Not letting on that his strength has returned, Samson in turn deceives his captors. When the opportunity arises, he uses his renewed strength to bring down the two middle pillars of a great temple when the...

    Capitalism is not economic anarchy. When properly defined, it recognizes several necessary conditions for the kinds of voluntary relationships it supports. One of these is the existence of inherent human rights, such as the right to make decisions, the right to be free, the right to hold property, and the right to exchange peacefully what one owns for something else. Capitalism also presupposes a system of morality. Under capitalism, there are definite limits, moral and otherwise, to the ways in which people can exchange. Capitalism should be viewed as a system of voluntary relationships within a framework of laws that...

Within a short period, he presented his request to go home on the basis of three Purple Hearts. By March 17, 1969, Kerry’s short career in Vietnam was over. Regarding the action on March 13.1969, Kerry’s medals were once again a complete fraud. Notwithstanding the fake submission for his Bronze Star, Kerry was never wounded or bleeding from his arm.

    On August 31, 1998, before the crisis reached its peak, Hassan al-Turabi approached Iraqi vice president Taha Yassin Ramadan, then visiting Khartoum, and asked if bin Laden could move his headquarters to Iraq. Ramadan immediately responded with a resounding yes, and bin Laden was notified within a few hours. Bin Laden has had some relations with Iraqi intelligence since 1993, when he played a role in the preparation and running of the Islamist operations in Somalia in which Iraqi special forces and Arab “Afghans” retrained by Iraqi intelligence also took part. In June 1994 bin Laden met Faruq al-Hijazi, then...

    --SNIP-- The Washington Times said it was the first of a series of reports based on a new book “Misunderestimated: The President Battles Terrorism, John Kerry and Bush Haters,” written by its White House correspondent, Bill Sammon. The title is based, in part, on a remark Bush made on Nov. 6, 2000, the final day of his first presidential campaign. “They misunderestimated me,” Bush said at the time, of his detractors.

    [Hillary] has a disturbing tendency to concoct carefully revised "facts" about her past, her persona, her circumstances, and her experiences--in other words, she has a real problem telling the truth. Sometimes her deceptions are silly. At other times, they are deeply pernicious. But even the fluffier fabrications send us a warning not to trust her. Take an apparently innocuous example: her nutty claim that her mother named her after Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb Mount Everest. Meeting Sir Edmund by chance at the Katmandu airport, Hillary apparently made up the story on the spot, telling reporters she...

    2003 | Lt Col Buzz Patterson USAF ret (and Clinton's Nuclear Football Carrier)
    During the summer of the 1996 attacks, I myself learned firsthand that the administration knew that terrorists were plotting to use commercial airliners as weapons. The president received a Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB, every morning. It was a document encased in a smart leather folder, and emblazoned with the presidential seal, that contained the president's daily intelligence update from the NSC. A senior NSC representative normally delivered it to the president. On weekends, at Camp David, and on vacations, the military aide was responsible for delivering and retrieving the brief. One late-summer Saturday morning, the president asked me to...

    "Another Conspiracy Theory intrigued me because I could never disprove it. The theory seemed unlikely on its face: Ramzi Yousef or Khalid Sheik Muhammad had taught Terry Nichols how to blow up the Oklahoma Federal Building. The problem was that, upon investigation, we established that both Ramzi Yousef and Nichols had been in the city of Cebu on the same days. I had been to Cebu years earlier; it is on an island in the central Philippines. It was a town in which word could have spread that a local girl was bringing her American boy friend home and that...

    From Richard Miniter's Losing Bin Laden , a book 9-11 Commission hack Roemer will never bring to the hearings: The American troops in Somalia were a perfect Islamist target. One window into bin Laden's thinking comes from Ayman Zawahiri, the head of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, and bin Laden's personal doctor (and ideological mentor by many accounts). Zawahiri listed the ideological enemies of his brand of militant Islam in a book called Knights Under the Prophet's Banner. In addition to the United States and Russia, he cited six enemies of Islamism: "the United Nations (** Memo to Kerrry, Ayman doesn't get...

    These are excerpts from a chapter from Dick Morris' new book, "Off With Their Heads - Traitors, Crooks & Obstructionists In American Politics, Media, Business." This chapter is titled, "How Clinton Left Ticking Terror Time Bombs For Bush To Discover." As King Louis XV lay dying, he ruminated about the state of the pre-revolutionary French kingdom his son would soon inherit. Every-where he looked, he saw peril -- the anger of the peasants, the arrogance of the nobility, the unfairness of the tax system. Sadly, he reflected that the young man who would become Louis XVI faced tough times. Old...

    From B. G Burkett's great book, "Stolen Valor," pp. 130-138:The TribunalsOn January 31, 1971, an organization called Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) convened what came to be known as the Winter Soldier Investigation. Some of the major organizers included Jane Fonda, Dick Gregory, Phil Ochs, Graham Nash, David Crosby, and actor Donald Sutherland. For four days in a hotel in Detroit, "veteran" after veteran told grisly tales of horror of using prisoners for target practice and throwing them out of helicopters, of cutting off the ears of dead VC, of burning vil­lages and gang-raping women.

    "Senior CIA officers complained to the president's national security team about their frustration with the FBI and warned that America was vulnerable to Islamic terrorists entering on legal visas and setting up sleeper cells. Reagan responded in September 1986 by forming an interagency task force, the Alien Border Control Committee (ABCC), whose purpose was to block entry of suspected terrorists and to deport militants who either had come into the country illegally or had overstayed their visas (emphasis mine). The CIA and FBI joined the ABCC effort. Six months after its formation, the ABCC had its first notable success. The...

    On September 13, 2002, FBI agents Sergio Barrio, 39, and Samantha Mikeska, 38, were aboard a freight train traversing the rolling hills of Mount Cristo Rey near the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas. They were riding the rail for much the same reason agents from Wells Fargo, Pinkerton’s, and other frontier-era security companies in the Old West rode rails—to thwart a rash of train robberies that had been taking place on that line for months.

Yet strong evidence supports every allegation. Who can deny any longer that Hillary Clinton presided over a "secret police" force, charged with silencing, bribing, blackmailing, intimidating, and otherwise neutralizing Clinton foes? The evidence is frankly overwhelming. "Hillary is not merely an aider and abettor to this secret police operation. She has been its prime instigator and organizer," wrote the late Barbara Olson in...
