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.

Kennedy's assassination is ignored by the lamestream media? The murder of JFK is probably the subject of the most conjecture in our...

    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...

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.

The cataclysm he craved in 1962 will erupt, he warned on Cuban TV, when the Israelis and their American cohorts provoke Iran in the straits of Hormuz. You did indeed read the above account correctly. Castro, the man who co-sponsored the famous 1975 UN resolution equating Zionism with racism, is claiming the Israeli tail wags the Yankee dog. Those Yankees are certainly powerful, Castro explained, but also a bit naďve and docile. The main...

    Compared with modern political scandals, the recently unveiled love letters and telegrams reportedly written by John F. Kennedy to a young Swedish woman in the 1950s may seem antiquated and almost chaste. In fact, there is not one foot-tapping or cigar-puffing folly to be found. But the Chicago-area auction house that put the correspondence up for sale on its Web site Monday is hoping that bidders will be drawn more by the collection's historic significance than the promise of juicy details.

    Good Morning America on Monday touted an adulterous affair John F. Kennedy had in the early 1950s as a "love story" and a "torrid and fleeting romance." Co-host George Stephanopoulos lauded the Kennedys as "American royalty" and the show offered no hint of criticism over the infidelity. "Love letters" revealing the relationship between an engaged and then just-married Kennedy and a Swedish woman are being put on auction this week. The correspondence between the two show that JFK was cheating on his wife from the very start. Yet, Stephanopoulos delicately spun, "They've been called a window into the complicated and...

    TAKE and hold the high ground. That’s imperative for victory in a military battle, as any good commander can tell you. President John F. Kennedy seized the high ground of outer space for the United States 49 years ago, during the Cold War, by initiating the Apollo moon rocket program. Other presidents since Kennedy have bolstered the nation’s manned space presence. They have kept our astronauts firmly in charge of the high ground over a hostile world, until now. Now, President Barack Obama, has put the United States in retreat, foolishly abandoning the high ground and leaving it open for...

    ...By the end of this year, there will be no shuttle, no U.S. manned space program, no way for us to get into space. We're not talking about Mars or the moon here. We're talking about low-Earth orbit, which the U.S. has dominated for nearly half a century and from which it is now retiring with nary a whimper. Our absence from low-Earth orbit was meant to last a few years, the interval between the retirement of the fatally fragile space shuttle and its replacement with the Constellation program (Ares booster, Orion capsule, Altair lunar lander) to take astronauts more...

    The other main area of lying [besides health] centered on [John F. Kennedy's] curriculum vitae. In 1940 his thesis was written for him by a number of people, including Arthur Krock of the New York Times, and Joe's personal speechwriter, who described it as a 'very sloppy job, mostly magazine and newspaper clippings stuck together.' But, processed, it not only allowed Jack to graduate cum laude but also appeared in book form as Why England Slept. Old Joe and his men turned it into a 'bestseller,' partly by using influence with publishers such as Henry Luce, partly by buying 30,000-40,000...
