  • Eleanor Roosevelt’s ‘mistress’ died heartbroken and alone

    They called each other “darling,” “dear one” and “heart.” They told each other “je t’aime” and “j’adore,” and wrote more than 3,000 letters to one another. “All day I’ve thought of you . . . Oh! I want to put my arms around you, I ache to hold you close,” the normally reserved Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in March 1933 to her beloved. No, not her husband, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but a brilliant, bourbon-drinking, cigarette-smoking Associated Press reporter named Lorena Hickok, or Hick. Their romance is at the center of Susan Quinn’s engrossing double biography, “Eleanor and Hick: The Love...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton held imaginary conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi as a therapeutic release, according to a new book written by Bob Woodward, says a report in Sunday's edition of The Chicago Sun-Times. The first lady declined a personal adviser's suggestion that she address Jesus Christ, however, because it would be "too personal," according to Woodward's book, "The Choice." The book, which is still to be published, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the Clintons, as well as Bob and Elizabeth Dole. Woodward says the adviser was Jean Houston, co-director of the Foundation for...
  • Americans’ top choice to replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill is … Eleanor Roosevelt?

    I understand why she’s a contender. I understand that she’s a liberal and feminist icon, I understand that she was a champion of human rights and an influential diplomat at the UN, I understand that she redefined the position of First Lady to give it a political resonance it hadn’t had before. But maybe, if the goal here is to break men’s stranglehold on the currency, we shouldn’t start with someone whose appearance on the $10 will ensure that nearly every conversation about it begins this way: “Isn’t her husband much more deserving?” Because he is, you know. Like...

    Eleanor Roosevelt is the current front-runner in the race to earn a spot on the soon-to-be redesigned $10 bill, according to a McClatchy-Marist poll released Wednesday. The poll showed that more than one in four Americans (27%) are hoping that when the U.S. Treasury Department unveils the new design, the former first lady will be the woman featured. African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman is the second most popular choice with 17% of the vote, followed by Native American explorer Sacagawea with 13%.

    This installment continues by exposing how Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt was surrounded by Communists and moves into the Truman Administration. Harry Truman was a Klu Klux Klansman and a pure Democrat hack . Helen Barrett Tenney was a Democrat and a Communist. Tenney was an employee of the Soviet spy system for many years before she joined the Roosevelt Administration’s Office of War Information from where she sent many reports to her Soviet spy handlers who paid her $50.00 a month for her work. [48] William Ludwig Ullmann was a Democrat and a Communist. Ullmann was hired into Roosevelt’s National...

    This installment continues by exposing how Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt were Communist lovers both politically and physically; how FDR pulled the dirtiest most disgusting stunt a Democrat had pulled to that time. During Roosevelt’s second term, American sentiment against involvement in Europe’s war grew. Most Americans were opposed to entering a war. Over estimating his mandate in foreign policy as he had in domestic affairs, Roosevelt allowed Britain to convince him to violate our clearly drawn neutrality laws which prescribed keeping a distance from the combatants in Europe and Asia. [37] As a Democrat and dictator Roosevelt...

    Ken Burns is at it again. The Left’s favorite propagandist has put together a 7 part series on the two Roosevelt presidents. Leaving aside what he is likely to show about Teddy Roosevelt, without seeing a minute of this presentation I’ll go out on a short strong limb and guess what will not be shown about Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Even a very superficial study of FDR shows he was a consummate phony. He preached “There is nothing to fear but fear itself,” but everything he did was presented as a fearful crisis that could only be handled by giving him...

    The Atlantic ^ | January 2, 2014 | Peter Beinart
    In his inaugural address Wednesday, incoming New York Mayor Bill de Blasio tried to establish an intellectual pedigree for his focus on economic inequality. He invoked Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Franklin Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, Al Smith, Frances Perkins, Fiorello La Guardia, Jacob Riis, David Dinkins, Mario Cuomo, and Harry Belafonte. It reminded me of when Democrats, eager to prove their national-security bona fides, tell audiences they hail from the party of Roosevelt, Truman, and Kennedy. As if there wasn’t some other Democrat after Kennedy who dabbled at war and peace, some guy from Texas. De Blasio’s speech was a bit...

    The First Lady, who was born on October 11, 1884, became a subject of controversy when people suspected she was romantically involved with journalist Lorena “Hick” Hickok. While the two never publicly addressed their relationship, their letters did nothing to dispel rumors. 1. March 5, 1933: Eleanor to Hick, on the first evening after FDR’s inauguration Hick my dearest— I cannot go to bed tonight without a word to you. I felt a little as though a part of me was leaving tonight. you have grown so much to be a part of my life that it is empty without...

    On Sunday, a stunned audience sat in silence as Doris Kearns Goodwin turned the keynote address at the opening ceremony for the 150th anniverary of the Battle of Gettysburg into a political lecture focusing on women's and gay rights. Missing from much of her keynote: Gettysburg. Self-centered, insular, and oblivious to the occasion, the historian who was infamously caught plagiarizing merely recycled much of what she has said before about herself in previous speeches. And her rambling, self-promoting, and borderline inappropriate lecture touched upon nearly everything except for the heroic sacrifices made on that battlefield. In so doing, she desecrated...

    It’s difficult to imagine that he was surprised by the outcome. But the White House response that ensued after Author and Journalist Bob Woodward dared to question and criticize the President should be an eye-opener to the world. And the fact that America’s beltway media culture has essentially “sided” with the President and seems quite comfortable with the White House hostility is a very telling sign. Consider the relationship between the presidency and the press over the course of American history. Believe it or not, the White House has been home to lots of outlandish and at times illegal...

    Mickey Kaus writes: Do you sense there is some large mass of dark matter, an unseen Scandal Star, the gravitational pull of which is warping the coverage of what seems, on the surface, a pretty dull presidential race? I do. So does Ron Rosenbaum. I thought the Dark Star was the Edwards affair allegation. But Rosenbaum says "everyone in the elite Mainstream media" knows about another juicy scandal that the LAT is supposedly sitting on. I guess this is proof that I’m not in the elite, because I don’t know what he’s talking about. … My vestigial Limbaugh gland tells...

    Cynthia Nixon is trying a different kind of sex in the city, the Daily News has learned. For almost 10 months now, the Emmy-winning actress has been dating another woman, sources say. Back in June of 2003, Nixon split with Danny Mozes, the father of her two children. Last January, according to friends, she began a lesbian relationship. Right now, Nixon, 38, does not want to be as outspoken as Rosie O'Donnell, the sources say. But Nixon did not flinch when we asked her yesterday whether she is involved with another woman. Speaking exclusively with the Daily News, she said,...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/24/2013 | Victor Keith
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his activist wife, Eleanor, have long been the historic icons of liberal and progressive causes to their admirers on the left. As part of that legacy, FDR was one of the pioneers of gun control with the Gun Control Act of 1934, which originally included a tax on all firearms and the establishment of a national registry. A wiser Congress forced him to scale it back to controlling automatic weapon and sawed-off shotguns. So it comes somewhat as a surprise to learn that his wife Eleanor, one of the most famous of female progressive activists, had...

  • What is the Fabian policy of Permeation?

    10/30/2012 8:31:13 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 11 replies
    During my transcription process of the book Fabian Freeway, I would sometimes go through the footnotes and see what I could verify, when one thing in particular caught my eye. (Chapter 17) The fact that an old-line southern Democrat had been induced to sponsor the basic legislation so ardently desired by all spokesmen of gradual Socialism was an early and notable example of success for the Fabian technique known as permeation. This concept is actually used extensively throughout the book, but for whatever reason, it caught my eye in the current context. The Fabians turned "Permeation" into a policy because...

    The Democrats now have hopes that trotting out Michelle Obama before the November 2010 elections will cause her adoring underlings to overlook the mess that has been created by her husband and Congress. They may find that instead the little people may begin to look at her "Let them eat cake" attitude with jaundiced eyes. What a contrast with Eleanor Roosevelt who was also a First Lady during a time of economic depression.

    Apparently actress Kate Hudson inherited more from mom Goldie Hawn than just looks and talent. She got her mother's Miss Cleo gene as well. Hudson claims to possess psychic capabilities, which were supposedly passed on to her from her comedic mother. Evidently, Hudson also gets a charge out of chitchatting with the dearly departed. She tells Empire magazine, "My mom is super into that stuff, we swap stories of our experiences all the time. I think I got my psychic abilities from her." Hudson also shares that she's "seen ghosts and experienced mystical things. I've seen many ghosts." Hudson tells...

    Borrowing a page from President Bush, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton told a Boston audience this week that prayer has always played a meaningful role in her life - though accounts from her days as a student radical suggest that's probably not true. "I've always been a praying person," Clinton told a crowd of more than 500, including many religious leaders, at Boston's Fairmont Copley Plaza. According to the Boston Globe, the newly religious former first lady "invoked God more than half a dozen times" as she urged society to accommodate religious people who "live out their faith in the...

Friends tell us that the two are cheering Sis on and say she's making all the moves to get ready for the race--presuming she is re-elected by New Yorkers in 2006.
