    NOVEMBER 22, 1963 was a day many Americans still living will never forget.... The President and Vice President were in Dallas... Most of the Cabinet were on a plane bound for Tokyo... The country was preparing for Thanks giving which I was looking forward to spending with Helen Fairbanks, my teenage love, in Baltimore. Whether you liked JFK or not, you found yourself listening to Peter, Paul and Mary, the Sound of Music and a song about "chickenfat" supporting Kennedy's fitness program. You were YOUNG. Even going to Atlantic City High you could wake up JOYFUL. It was just something...

    NEW YORK (AFP) – Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio, star of "Titanic," was among passengers on a Delta Airline jet forced to make an emergency landing in New York after losing one engine, a report said Monday. DiCaprio, 36, "avoided disaster at 30,000 feet," reported. The plane, bound for Moscow, had to return to John F. Kennedy airport shortly after take-off Sunday when an engine suddenly shut down.

    47 YEARS AGO, JFK WAS ASSASSINATED IN DALLAS, TEXAS; DR. CYRIL WECHT JOINS ANDREA TO DISCUSS THE EVENT It was 47 years ago today that President John F. Kennedy was gunned down while riding in his motorcade through Dallas' Dealey Plaza. JFK's limousine was open and sparsely protected. Those of us who were alive at the time remember exactly where we were when the news broadcast came over the airwaves. For me, it was CBS' Walter Cronkite who reported to my classroom that the president had in fact died at 1 PM CST at Dallas' Parkland Hospital. School was...

    What really happened that day in Dealey Plaza? We’ll never know for sure.  At least not until Sept. 14, 2038, and even then we aren’t assured that the records will be genuine, tampered with or truthful.  And despite the Warren Commission's official report, why can't Americans see the records until that date?  What’s being hidden?  Who’s being protected?  And why is it that today -- the 47th anniversary of the most controversial event in our nation's history, John F. Kennedy's assassination is ignored by the lamestream media? The murder of JFK is probably the subject of the most conjecture in our...

    President Obama has claimed his father's education in the United States was financed through the efforts of Kenyan independence leader Tom Mboya and President John F. Kennedy, but newspaper archives indicate Barack Obama Sr. came to Hawaii in 1959 with his own savings. Previously, WND reported that Barack Obama Sr. was not brought to the U.S. to study in Hawaii in 1959 by any organized airlift of Kenyan students, including those organized by baseball great Jackie Robinson, with the assistance of JFK. Nor was Obama Sr. on any of the three subsequently chartered airplanes in what became known as the...

    Remembering the Fateful Day in Dallas When President John F. Kennedy Was Assassinated CBS) It seems so long ago, and so recent. Those of a certain age will remember where they were 47 years ago today when they heard about the shots ringing out in Dallas. Subsequent assassinations of public figures did not quell the pain felt by the nation when President John F. Kennedy was killed, less than three years after entering office, at the age of 46. Shortly after noon on November 22, 1963, President Kennedy was waving to the cheering crowd as his motorcade passed the Texas...

    Jack Kennedy won the presidency with the help of large amounts of cash – and a liberal number of lies, says Andrew Marr. Get the picture right, and your history will take care of itself. Jack Kennedy always got the picture right. Even now, it is hardly possible to glimpse the gleaming white smile, the sunlit hair and the perfect First Family without a lump in the throat. JFK became the icon of democratic optimism, the man who inspired half the world. Cut down in his prime, he never grew old enough to betray, disillusion or bore his legion of...

    In January, for the first time in 64 years, there will be no member of the Kennedy family holding office in Washington. The chain remained unbroken from 1946, when JFK was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, until this year, when JFK's nephew Patrick Kennedy, retired from the U.S. House.

    Fifty years ago, American government -- even American society -- entered into a wonderland of youth, prettiness, chic, and charisma. John Kennedy had defeated Richard Nixon in the presidential debates (or at least JFK defeated Nixon in the eyes of the millions of Americans who watched the debates -- those who heard them on the radio felt that Nixon had won). The election of 1960 was incredibly close and could have torn the country apart, except that mean-spirited Nixon (unlike Nobel Prize winner Gore) chose to concede and spare the nation a political civil war. A glorious age was about...

    Connecticut GOP Senate hopeful Linda McMahon is refusing to remove a Web ad that uses archive footage of John F. Kennedy talking about the importance of tax cuts. The 30-second spot, titled "A Good Idea Then and Now," uses 1963 footage of the late president arguing that tax cuts would serve as an economic stimulus. It's a message meant to bolster McMahon's position that the so-called Bush tax cuts, set to expire later this year, should be extended. Edward Kennedy Jr., the late president's nephew, sent a letter to McMahon this week asking the GOP candidate to pull the ad,...

    I would think, by now, everyone is aware of the fact that President John Kennedy was very much in favor of cutting taxes during the recession of 1962. He understood what so many now have seen (see Reagan) that tax cuts stimulate an economy and add to government revenue, not subtract. It is truly amazing to hear his words again during these trying times. This video was brought to my attention by Steve McGough and asembled by the Winston Group. It comes to us via Americans for Tax Reform.

On frequent occasions, Prouty would work out of the home of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles with the Dulles brothers on fast breaking world affairs.

    A flight attendant ran out of patience on a plane that just landed at JFK on Monday afternoon, so he allegedly cursed a blue streak over the p.a. system, grabbed some beers, pulled the emergency chute, slid down and ran from the plane, sources said. Jet Blue employee Steven Slater was working on Flight 1052 from Pittsburgh to Kennedy Airport, which landed at around 12 p.m., when he got into a verbal altercation with a passenger, law-enforcement sources said. Following a heated exchange, the flight attendant told off the entire plane on the public address system, activated an emergency chute...
