  • Grand Jury Testimony In Cold War-Era Rosenberg Case Released (Brother's Testimony)

    07/15/2015 6:15:21 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 32 replies
    NPR ^ | 7/15
    Here's what we know: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed in 1953 for selling U.S. nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union after one of the most sensational Cold War-era espionage trials. They were convicted in 1951 owing, largely, to the testimony of David Greenglass, Ethel Rosenberg's brother. Here's what we don't know: How credible Greenglass' testimony was in court. Greenglass himself spent nearly a decade in prison for his role in the conspiracy. The Army sergeant stole nuclear intelligence from Los Alamos, N.M., and said he passed it on to the Rosenbergs. At the trial, he said Ethel Rosenberg typed...
  • Police On Alert Amid Nato Summit Protest

    08/31/2014 7:12:49 PM PDT · by Tailgunner Joe · 19 replies ^ | August 31, 2014
    Anti-war protesters have been demonstrating in Newport, as South Wales prepares to host the Nato summit. Around 1,000 people gathered outside the crown court before they made their way through the city. As well as a strong Welsh contingent, demonstrators came from as far as the US, Belgium, France and Ireland. Police are expecting more demonstrations this week including one on Thursday that may be "something a little more challenging" as protesters try to get to Celtic Manor Resort, which is the focus of the summit. Among those taking part in Saturday's march was veteran CND campaigner Bruce Kent. He...

    A new French book that decries income inequality has become such the rage among the U.S. left that it is sparking debate on a smoldering political issue: That Hillary Clinton isn't liberal enough to win the Democratic nomination in 2016. Thomas Piketty's “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” uses a mountain of historical data to show that income inequality, a subject President Obama has seized on, will grow without government intervention. One idea is to devote up to three-quarters of income to taxes. Progressives, many of whom are eyeing Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren or even Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders leading up...

    The Department of Education pulled a “Quote of the Day” by Chinese dictator Mao Zedong from its children’s website Friday after a screenshot of the quote went viral. The website, Kids’ Zone by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), featured the quote “Our attitude towards ourselves should be ‘to be satiable in learning’ and towards others ‘to be tireless in teaching.” After a slew of backlash mostly from conservatives, the website replaced the quote with one from Abraham Lincoln’s first political announcement. Then the quote was removed completely with a peculiar message reading, “Sorry there is no quote of...

    The National Education Association has made a glowing assessment of radical socialist community organizer Saul Alinsky and is enthusiastically recommending American public school teachers read two of his books, including one dedicated to Satan. On its website, the NEA dubs Alinsky "an inspiration to anyone contemplating action in their community! And to every organizer!" It recommends Alinsky's "Reveille for Radicals," a 1946 book about the principles and tactics of "community organizing," and "Rules for Radicals," a 1971 text that articulated a socialist strategy for gaining political power to redistribute wealth from the "haves" to the "have-nots."

"I don't know what's next," Obama, the presidential candidate, said at an outdoor rally in North Carolina. "By the end of the week, he'll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten. I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich." Obama turned to ridicule to rebut McCain's daily references to Obama's encounter with "Joe the Plumber." McCain has capitalized on a moment when Obama told an Ohio plumber that he...

    In downtown Seattle, they light a big Christmas tree for the holidays. But in Fremont, they're going to light up -- what else? -- the big statue of Vladimir Lenin. Lenin will be lighted at 5 p.m. Dec. 3 at the corner of Fremont Place North and North 36th Street. (It's the intersection with the big statue of Lenin.) The monument will be bedecked with garland and lights -- and probably not just red ones. It will be the first time the 18-foot bronze statue has been lighted since it came to the Center of the Universe in 1995 by...

    HANOI (Reuters) - In the heart of what was once enemy territory for American forces, Hanoi residents seemed bemused Monday over the debate in the U.S. presidential campaign about who did what in the Vietnam War three decades ago.Nearly half of Vietnam's 81 million people were born after what is known here as the "American War" ended in April 1975 with the ignominious withdrawal of the last U.S. forces before the communist North reunified the country. Nguyen Lu Dung, a 23-year-old office clerk, was one of them. She said she did not know Democratic candidate John Kerry had fought in...

    There is a  whine issuing from the political left these days that opponents of the Iraq war are unfairly characterized as “unpatriotic.” In our view this whine is a case of guilt and projection. We are not acquainted with any supporters the war who characterize all their critics as “unpatriotic.” We certainly don’t. But we do judge critics of the war on their merits and we are of the opinion that not all criticisms are alike. Consider those like Michael Moore who side with America’s enemies and promote their victory – and our defeat. These are not "critics" of America. They are enemies...

    AUSTIN -- Erica Anthony-Benavides is a junior at Trinity University in San Antonio, a member of Ladies in Physics and not very politically active. But because she signed a petition against the war in Iraq, a national conservative Internet site has declared her an enemy of America. "I don't know why they want to accuse us of treason. It's not fair. We haven't done anything. We've just said something that somebody doesn't like," said Anthony-Benavides, a native of Corpus Christi. Anthony-Benavides, 19, has been swept up in a new Internet war between the right and left in America that is...

    Ithaca was once called America's “Most Enlightened City”. But now, a group is using an Internet site to call it something very different-- "The City of Evil." The site is run by the group "Behind Liberal Lines." It lists reasons why Ithaca is the city of evil. It includes everything from the fact that the city once had a socialist mayor to the fact that Ithaca is home to Lucifer Falls. The site also takes a stab at local politics, bashing the strong-hold the Green Party has in the area and poking fun at political leaders. "What they said on...

    The Washington Post ^ | 5/2/04 | Richard Leiby
    In the Style section last summer we profiled a Los Angeles writer named Micah Ian Wright, who'd just published a shrill antiwar poster book called "You Back the Attack! We'll Bomb Who We Want!" In his book, he described himself as a veteran of combat, a former Army Ranger whose experiences during the 1989 invasion of Panama turned him into a peacenik. In interviews with The Post and other media, he played up that background. Wright, it turns out, is a liar. He never served in the military --

    <p>Regarding "Teachers should speak out on policy," it was not surprising that a teacher spent her entire career indoctrinating susceptible, immature minds with her individual political slant. It was surprising that she would proudly admit it.</p> <p>A teacher should not be an unchallenged propaganda vehicle preying on empty minds. A teacher should present the facts and reasoned arguments on both sides. Students need more history and economics, not tailored indoctrination.</p>
  • L.A. Times: Still Biased After All These Years

    The longstanding leftist orthodoxy of the Los Angeles Times has improved noticably under Editor-in-Chief John Carroll, a respected newsman who moved here from the Baltimore Sun four years ago. Carroll has made a real effort to rein in the paper's liberal bias, at least in straight news stories; earlier this year he wrote a famous (in media circles) in-house memo scolding a reporter for a story about a Texas abortion law; the piece had implied anyone against abortion is obviously nuts. I should note though, that this improvement at the Times was underway even before Carroll's arrival, with the departure...
  • Communists Infiltrated Kerry's Anti-War Group, Historian Says

    ( - The 1970s anti-war group that included current Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry was "heavily infiltrate[d]" by individuals dedicated to the teachings of Chinese communist leader Mao Tse-Tung and to the use of violence, if necessary to achieve their goals, according to a historian friendly to Kerry. "The RCP (Revolutionary Communist Party) was already beginning to heavily infiltrate the [Vietnam Veterans Against the War in 1971]. They eventually took it over around '73 and basically pushed out all the real veterans and brought in all the RCP functionaries and destroyed the organization," Gerald Nicosia, author of Home to War:...
