    ...this memo from William A. Branigan, an FBI agent who later rose to become chief of the Bureau’s counterintelligence division before he retired in 1976. Branigan’s investigative work was important; he was instrumental in investigations that led to the espionage convictions of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, Col. Rudolph Abel and Kaarlo Tuomi, as well as working the JFK assassination. In the memo below, Branigan is passing on information to William C. Sullivan, who at the time was the head of the FBI’s domestic intelligence division. The information being passed along counts more as rumor than anything else, though perhaps with...

    After almost 54 years, the controversy about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy still rages today. The question at the center of the debate is the roll of Lee Harvey Oswald. Was he the diabolical perpetrator of the heinous crime or an unwitting patsy set up to take the blame for the murder of the century by powerful forces either within the U.S. government, the Mafia or foreign entities? Prior to the assassination, Oswald spent several months living, playing and working in New Orleans, LA. While some believe he was using that time to prepare for the Kennedy assassination,...

    <p>As president, he cut a grandiose figure. He was a braggart and a frequent liar. He was suspicious of other countries, frequently saying, “Foreigners are not like the folks I am used to.” He had a reckless disregard for limits. He belittled and browbeat others to intimidate them and give him what he wanted. Historian Robert Dallek said that he “viewed criticism of his policies as personal attacks” and opponents of his policies “as disloyal to him and the country.”</p>

    A Florida Democrat running for Congress was caught on tape saying that Hillary Clinton “is under no illusions that you want to have sex with her,” according to the Miami Herald. The comment from Joe Garcia, a former congressman attempting to regain his seat, came during an attempt to explain how Clinton reminds him of former President Lyndon Johnson.

    Harold M. Ickes never forgets a favor, especially if he's the one who did the favor. So the veteran political operative made sure that, when the time was right, he alone would call Garry Shay, former chairman of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party... And once Ickes started calling, he didn't stop until Shay said the words Ickes wanted to hear -- that he would support Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August... the man in charge of Clinton's feverish effort to lock up superdelegates is Ickes, whose enthusiasm for...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 1/25/2016 | Staff
    In an article published on National Public Radio's (NPR) website Monday, a map of the Middle East failed to include Israel, labeling Palestine in its place. The map was an illustration accompanying the article "What Are You Afraid Of In 2016? Globetrotters Share Their Fears." The article referenced travelers' fears of Islamic radicalization and extremism in the region. Immediately following the publication, the website's comment section was flooded with criticism from readers and journalists who questioned the online publication's decision to use an illustration of this nature. As a result of the abundance of complaints, NPR removed the photo and...

    Two of the oldest and most venerated public policy institutes in Washington, D.C., the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution, have produced a new joint report dealing with the issue of fighting poverty in America. The report, "Opportunity, Responsibility, and Security: A Consensus Plan for Reducing Poverty and Restoring the American Dream," is noteworthy for a number of reasons. One is that it reflects a consensus view between long established Washington institutions representing opposite sides of the political spectrum, with AEI being right of center and the Brooking Institution left of center. But also noteworthy is the nature of...

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. Former Democratic President Woodrow Wilson may be purged from his alma mater, Princeton University. The old “Schoolmaster of Politics”, as he was known for his academic background at Cornell, Bryn Mawr, Wesleyan and finally president of Princeton U, has been thrown under the bus by its current president for being a politically incorrect progressive. Also known as a plain old racist. Woody was indeed a racist. Though even on his worst day he was still about 40% less racist than...

    It was a throwback moment at the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday when Catherine Robb, the granddaughter of the late president Lyndon Johnson, was admitted to the court's bar. Her father Charles Robb, the former governor and U.S. senator from Virginia, moved her admission. It appeared that several justices recognized the presidential connection as she was sworn in to the bar. "It's something my father and I talked about years ago," Catherine Robb said afterward. "It was an opportunity for my father to move my admission—a special bond between us." Catherine Robb, 45, is counsel to Haynes and Boone in...

    The jungles of Viet Nam were the reality for over 54,000 deaths of America’s soldiers, but the Nam war also may be the epitome of stupidity for politicians who turned a US victory into an agonizing defeat! An important book appearing on bookshelves of an American legion post details just what went wrong and it was written by the son of John H. Richardson, Sr., the senior CIA station chief in Saigon. Much maligned after news stories popped up in homeland newspapers, written by real fly-by reporters, the Saigon headquarters of the CIA chief became the boiling point for palace...

    As state legislatures throughout America struggle with requirements to balance their state budgets, let us pause to remember that one-quarter of the budget is dictated by Lyndon Baines Johnson, whose damage to state budgets lives on 42 years after his death. As president, LBJ pushed for Medicaid -- free health insurance for poor people. This was a boon to the medical industry, particularly hospitals, doctors, sellers of wheelchairs, and nursing homes. But Medicaid comes at the expense of schools, highways, prisons and others state services because it requires states to pony up some of the money in this federally mandated...

    On Saturday they would appear before the convention’s Credentials Committee and ask to be seated as the official Mississippi state delegation... Shortly after he signed the Civil Rights Act, Lyndon Johnson told his aide Joseph Califano, "I think we’ve delivered the South to the Republican party for your lifetime and mine." Maybe so, but he was determined to hold onto the region long enough to ensure his own re-election; the opinion polls might show him leading the Republican candidate, Barry Goldwater, by an enormous margin, but he was desperate not to stoke the fires of sectional conflict. Only one...

    Leon Panetta and Robert Gates, two former directors of the CIA and Defence Department, on Saturday criticised President Barack Obama's micromanagement of the military. “For the past 25 to 30 years, there has been a centralisation of power in the White House,” Panetta said during a panel discussion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation. “Because of that centralisation of authority at the White House, there are too few voices that are being heard.” Without naming the Obama administration, Panetta said that by the time you get to the White House, the staff has already decided what should be done. Panetta...

From August 2, 1943 the day his PT 109 was cut in half by a Japanese destroyer the legend of John FitzGerald Kennedy was nurtured and carefully managed. [69] John Kennedy was not his father Joseph P. Kennedy’s first choice to make one of his sons the president of the United States. The old bootlegger had his eyes on Joe Kennedy junior for that designation.

    The Democrats have been preparing the way for today’s “lone wolf” terror attacks for fifty years. For five decades they have been conditioning minorities especially Blacks and more recently Hispanics to hate and resent the larger White Christian influence in America. Starting with Lyndon Johnson, Democrats have ripped up Black families. They have blackmailed African American women by telling them to separate from their men under threat of losing the benefits, Democrats have made necessary for their survival. Today intact Black families are few and far between except on television. Black men, and now Hispanic men, have been chased out...

    When Democrat President Lyndon Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, he was doing so very reluctantly. He knew that the 1960 census had shown what he correctly considered a shift to the Right in the South that would make it difficult, if not impossible, for Democrats to win the White House in the future. Being the Machiavellian sneak that he was, Johnson probably looked back at his support for Operation Wetback which deported about 1.5 million Mexicans who were in the Southwest illegally as a lost opportunity to restock the Democrat voter pool. With that chance lost, Johnson and...
  • Do US Presidents Enrich Themselves in Office Like Lyndon Johnson?

    06/03/2014 9:06:27 AM PDT · by pinochet · 38 replies
    It is well known that Senators and Congressmen enrich themselves through book deals, speaking engagements, campaign finance cash, etc. When Lyndon Johnson was president, he was open in stealing money from the public treasury, a fact that even his strongest supporters acknowledge. Johnson left office with a net worth of tens of millions of dollars (if not more), which was a lot of money in 1969. When Nixon told the American people that he was not a crook, he was referring to Lyndon Johnson's corruption. Is Lyndon Johnson the only person who enriched himself during the presidency, or are there...

    Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson, the Democrat famous for expanding the U.S. welfare state through the "Great Society," if he were elected president. According to the Miami Herald, Bush made those comments Wednesday night in San Antonio, Florida at Saint Leo University, while speaking about education, immigration, and energy policy. Bush did not address Johnson's Great Society and War on Poverty programs, about which Ronald Reagan once famously quipped, "We had a war on poverty, and poverty won."
