    Freedom Works ^ | March 20, 2015 | Michael Greibrok
    Currently there are 73 federal agencies that have full-time armed officers with arresting authority. According to a 2008 report by the Department of Justice, there were 120,000 full-time law enforcement officers working for federal agencies and 24 different federal agencies employed at least 250 full-time officers. Federal agencies with at least 250 full-time officers included the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Mint, U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Veterans Health Administration. While speaking before the Constitutional Convention in 1787, James Madison said, “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.” Despite this...

    Amongst the findings were shoes and photos hidden by Jewish prisoners of the Holocaust. PRAGUE - House owners rebuilding their attic in the Czech town of Terezinhave found photos, shoes and other possessions of Jews forced into a ghetto there under Nazi rule, a heritage project said on Thursday. Terezin (Theresienstadt), a fortress and garrison town built at the end of the 18th century, was used by the Nazis as a transit camp for Jews rounded up in Czechoslovakia and deported from elsewhere in Europe. They were held in the ghetto until they could be transported to camps farther east....
  • Alfred Hitchcock - Alfred Hitchcock's Lost Holocaust Documentary To Air

    01/08/2014 4:35:51 PM PST · by BBell · 22 replies ^ | Wednesday 08 January 2014 | WENN
    Alfred Hitchcock's lost documentary about the horrors of the Holocaust is scheduled to be screened in full for the first time. The legendary moviemaker created the documentary using footage filmed during the liberation of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany in 1945, and Hitchcock was reportedly so traumatized by the shocking scenes, he took a week off work to recover. The project, originally titled Memory of the Camps, was eventually shelved, and the film reels were given to the Imperial War Museum in London. Some of the documentary was later cobbled back together and an incomplete version was screened at the...

    A prominent liberal columnist’s admission that the “death panels” Sarah Palin warned about really are and always have been a part of Obamacare caused a blowup Tuesday on Fox’s “The Five,” when host Eric Bolling said “liberal royalty” owes Palin an apology. Bolling was referring to a statement by Time magazine columnist and passionate Obama fan Mark Halperin, who told Newsmax TV on Monday that health-care rationing was an inseparable part of Obamacare’s takeover of the U.S. health system. Halperin himself didn’t use the term “death panels,” but the point was clear enough from the clip. It wasn’t clear enough...

    (AFP) - The city of Brussels officially recognized Sunday its complicity in the deportation of thousands of Jews to Nazi death camps during World War II. At a ceremony attended by Israel's ambassador and Belgian Deputy Prime Minister Joelle Milquet, Brussels mayor Freddy Thielemans acknowledged the key role the city's register of Jews played in raids that sent thousands to death camps. "Without this register of Jews, the progressive arrests and the raid of September 1942 would never have had the same impact in Brussels," Thielemans said, quoted by Belga news agency. Approximately 5,640 names were registered. On the other...

    Leadership: The perils of reading scripts written by hacks from teleprompters were shown by a president who has a habit of insulting and betraying allies. He has succeeded in making his vice president look eloquent. Maybe President Obama was just tired from campaigning for re-election in all 57 states where he said he campaigned in 2008. But on Tuesday, while presenting World War II Polish resistance hero Jan Karski with a posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest American honor that can be given a civilian, he made a reference to "Polish death camps."

They lived through the Holocaust, saved solely by their musical genius. Dawson's son Greg believes his mother and aunt are the only two Jewish survivors from Kharkov. He came upon their names at the memorial in 2006 when he visited Ukraine to write a book...

Five people were detained yesterday during raids in a village near the northern city of Torun in connection with the robbery on Friday. Police found the inscription, which had hung over the entrance to the camp since 1940, hidden in woodland and covered with brushwood and snow. Dariusz Nowak, a police spokesman, described the suspects as "common criminals" aged 20 to 39, and said they would face up to 10 years in...

    Brandishing blueprints of the Auschwitz death camp, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday blasted the United Nations for turning a blind eye to terrorism and urged the world leaders to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Calling out those heads of state who remained in their seats for Holocaust-denying Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's "anti-Semitic rants" earlier this week, Netanyahu also pulled out chilling evidence of the Final Solution. It was a copy of the minutes of the infamous 1942 Wannsee Conference, where Nazi leaders fine-tuned their methodical plans for genocide.

Pensioners, many of who rely on income from savings accounts, have been particularly badly hit by sharp falls in interest rates. Stockmarket falls have also reduced the value of pension schemes.

    BAD AROLSEN, Germany - Within weeks of Hitler's 1933 rise to power, the iron gates slammed shut on inmates of the first Nazi concentration camps. It was the start of an unparalleled experiment in persecution and genocide that expanded over the next 12 years into a pyramid of ghettos, Gestapo prisons, slave labor camps and, ultimately, extermination factories. Holocaust historians are only now piecing together the scattered research in many languages to understand the vast scope of the camps, prisons and punishment centers that scarred German-ruled Europe, like a pox on the landscape stretching from Greece to Norway and eastward...

Some 1.5 million people, mostly Jews, were murdered at the site, which remains at the heart of sometimes tense but improving Polish-Jewish relations.

The draft proposals have been prepared by committees appointed by Blair to tackle extremism. He has promised to respond to the plans, but the threat to the Holocaust Day has provoked a fierce backlash from the Jewish community. Holocaust Day was established by Blair...

    It's a given that The New York Times ignored the Holocaust, a sin of omission confessed by the paper itself. Now we have a book that says it ain't so — that from the beginning to the end of World War II, The Times published 1,186 stories about the extermination of the European Jews. It just buried the stories inside. "Buried by The Times" is the title of the book, and it's more damning by far than anything the critics ever said about the paper's coverage of the worst mass murder in history. This book proves that The Times not...

    At some point, perhaps in the not too distant future, the Terri Schiavo case may prove to be the seminal event that sparked the final days of the once-respected and essential soul of America. That which makes the Terri Schiavo case and controversy unique is neither that she has been on feeding and hydration tubes, nor that they were removed so that she would finally and inexorably die. Rather, it is that we, as a nation, have been intimately involved in the death watch and a media event…that of the murder of an innocent woman. I have heard estimates that...

In an unusual move, the White House sent deputy defense secretary Paul Wolfowitz to lead the U.S. delegation. Wolfowitz is said to be on a short list of candidates to...

And so one day in 1991, recalls Ahn Myong Chul, a former prison driver who later fled North Korea, an enterprising fellow guard coaxed five prisoners into climbing the camp's barbed-wire fence. He shot them dead--and thereby earned an education at a state political college.
