Hitler's Mustache            
  

Return Engagement

The American Thinker article The Ominous Implications for the West of Jews' Exodus from France  is about the exodus from France of French Jews, who are fleeing violence perpetrated by Muslims and apparently tolerated by the French government.   For anyone who's been paying attention, this isn't really news. But, as is often the case with American Thinker, there's more revealed in the Readers' Comments; jumping from anti-Semitism in France to anti-Semitism in America, we learn this:


ArmyAviator:

There is a new wave of anti-Semitism in America that I continue to be amazed at. In the army, it really began after the First Gulf War. I witnessed officers, even senior officers go from admiring Israel and the Israeli armed forces, to cursing them as "those damned Kikes."

Mostly, this has happened due to our culture crashing and burning. Wide scale recruitment of Blacks and other minorities, brought their prejudices and bigotry toward Whites in general and Jews in particular to the army.

A Jew in the army is a double target. First, he's White and second he's a Jew. That really irks the Bros and the Hoes! To maintain any possible standard of discipline, the leadership has had to adjust and accept the prejudice and bigotry of the ranks. Consequently, we have the most hostile environment possible for Jewish soldiers, on a scale not seen since before WW2.

As the army grows smaller, due to defense cuts, reduction in mission requirements, or whatever, the cadre that remains, will be more and more "politically reliable" and will serve as a tool of the Liberal Socialist movement.

This will be accomplished through selective retention, not necessarily of the best and most talented officers and soldiers, but through their dedication to (Liberal Socialist) Democrats! 0bama has had six years already, to weed out politically unreliable General Officers, and the weeding is extending its way down as far as possible, as the army shrinks.

If the next president happens to be a Republican, he/she will have a disloyal General Staff, not necessarily interested in "obeying the orders of the President of the United States," but more in tune with advancing Liberal Socialist causes and objectives. Ridding the army of Jews is one of them.

Tea Party leaders need not apply
in Republican Party of the future

“While the voice of every Republican should be heard, our challenge is to figure out how to be a conservative party, without allowing the most extreme voices of the day to control our party and determine its future direction.”

That was former Virginia Lt. Governor Bill Bolling in the pages of the Washington Post responding to the election of Fred Gruber to head up Virginia’s 7th Congressional District Republican Committee. Bolling called the result “extremely disappointing.”

So, what was it about Gruber that compelled Bolling to refer to him as one of the “most extreme voices” in the Republican Party?

Judging from Gruber’s rather mundane campaign website, it is somewhat hard to say. His biography does state that “Fred believes our Party is on the wrong track, and has been an outspoken advocate for the need to reform.”

Okay, so he’s not an establishment guy, and is not supportive of the current Republican majority in the House, thinks we’re spending too much, and the like.

But so what? Isn’t there room in the Virginia Republican Party for activists like Gruber, who heads the Louisa, Virginia Tea Party and otherwise has spent his career as a financial analyst?

Otherwise, Gruber ran on a rather innocuous platform “to bring in new activists from the Tea Party, the Liberty movement, and pro-Family movement, and unite them with traditional Republicans to build a stronger GOP toward winning elections in our state and nationally.”

Frankly, that’s all pretty standard boilerplate as far as Republican politics goes.

Then again, Bolling’s frustration may have had nothing to do with Gruber’s political beliefs, and everything to do with Gruber’s support of Dave Brat to oppose House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) in the upcoming June 10 primary.

Adding insult to injury, Gruber had just defeated Cantor loyalist Linwood Cobb to win the local party election.

That is apparently enough to get smeared by the former Virginia Lt. Governor as one of the GOP’s “most extreme voices” in one of the nation’s most widely read newspapers, rather than congratulating him on a hard-fought victory.

HELL-OOOO? This isn't news so much as just another bulleted item on a long list.  It's only recently (20 years is my recently) that I became acutely aware of the GOP's resistance to what we all assumed was the GOP's raison d' etre— conservatism.  As indirect opposition to Democrats, which is a healthy political balance.

Then, in 1994 (and again in 2004) the GOP, in the guise of Rick Santorum, supported Arlen Specter against the conservative Pat Toomey.  WTF?  That's when I began looking at things.  Now, of course, the signs were there all the while; that the GOP was the go-along/get-along party.  And this Ronald Reagan moment finally made sense to me.

ASIDE: Pat Toomey Is Becoming the Arlen Specter He Once Destroyed

The sooner the "Conservative Base" wakes up and realizes that they are being betrayed, the better. It's way past time to move on and return to the values the republics use to stand for.

Boehner is starting his curtain call and now has cut a deal with the most lawless President we've ever had. Valerie Jarrett confirmed he has cut a deal for Immigration and amnesty. He will not be Speaker in the new Congress. Florida here he comes.

Cantor a weasel in his own right is lining himself up for Speaker but needs to get past Brat first. God help us is he does.

Toomey has become Arlen and made his bed with Manchin to go after guns. It should finish off both of them back home, if the electorate remembers.

The "GOP" is "DOA". Unfortunately for us so is the Country because of this betrayal.

Bolling is bitter, because after two terms as Lt. Governor of Virginia, he thought the governorship was "owed" to him, then he was whipped in the pre-election polls by a Tea Party guy, Atty Gen. Ken Cuccinelli, and Bolling withdrew his candidacy in the face of a losing battle.
After quitting the race for the party’s gubernatorial nod, Bolling publicly mulled over an independent bid and then said he wouldn’t endorse anyone in the race. Not only did Bolling refuse to endorse Cuccinelli, he also transferred the money remaining in his gubernatorial campaign committee to his political action committee, the Virginia Mainstream Project, which spent no money to support Cuccinelli.
Later, when the influential business PAC Northern Virginia Technology Council voted to endorse Cuccinelli, Bolling tried to help persuade it to switch its support to Democrat Terry McAuliffe over Republican Ken Cuccinelli. After saying he would not interject and would not get involved, Bolling got caught when he called the PAC’s leader on behalf of McAuliffe.
Bolling is a bitter sleazoid.

I live in Cantor's district, and we are bombarded on the talk shows and Fox TV with Cantor ads depicting Brat as a liberal, and the ads are just as lying, trite and sleazy as you'ed expect from any Uhbamunist campaign ad. Cantor is obviously worried, because all of a sudden, I'm getting emails touting all the great, wonderful legislation he's launching in the next few months, an how he fought Uhbamacare. Well, Brat nailed it in his ad when he pointed out that Cantor has given Uhbama a blank check by voting TEN times to extend the debt limit. In the meantime, I hope Cantor really stews about his fair haired chosen one losing the district chairmanship to the Tea Party.
Cantor's district is the most conservative in Virginia, and we're sick of his fence straddling. I do so hope Brat dumps RINO weasel Cantor.

Every year since 1896, the Senate has observed Washington's Birthday by selecting one of its members, alternating parties, to read the 7,641-word statement in legislative session.  Delivery generally takes about 45 minutes.  In 1985, Florida Senator Paula Hawkins tore through the text in a record-setting 39 minutes, while in 1962, West Virginia Senator Jennings Randolph, savoring each word, consumed 68 minutes. 

At the conclusion of each reading, the appointed senator inscribes his or her name and brief remarks in a black, leather-bound book maintained by the Secretary of the Senate

Here are 209 words from that address.


Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice ?

And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government.

The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who, that is a sincere friend to it, can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?

Agreed, but here's an instance where the United States Senate deems something so important that they read it aloud every year.

BTW, the list of yearly "readers" is notable for which party is so scarcely represented in the last several years.

Murder Bay

View of Red Light District on C. Street, N.W., near 13th, with Griffin Veatch, who was showing me around. No. 6 Special Messenger Service, 1223 New York Ave., N.W.; he lives 1643 Cramer St., N.E. He said he commenced the messenger service at 11 yrs. old. Has worked all night a couple of years, and now works until 10 P.M. Is known to Truant Officers. Family has had trouble with him. Says he is 17 but doesn’t look it. Quite profane, but (apparently) not very wise about this district although he says he goes to these houses occasionally. Location: Washington (D.C.), District of Columbia. (Library of Congress)
Illustration of a perceived scenario of sexual misconduct in 1883

Tommy "Mann Act" Mann sent this delicious retrospective that he titled "Some things never change."  Actually they do change, a little.  Today, more often than not, it would be a male page sitting on Mr. Representative's lap.  And, there are no longer "close to 100 houses of prostitution" just east of the White House. Only 10, or so.

The article itself is about an area of D.C. once called the "Murder Bay;" a 'hood with all the tone and tenor of Jack the Ripper London.

Then the streets were unpaved, except certain of the principal thoroughfares; the houses were for the most part mean and straggling, while the moral atmosphere was almost in accord with the condition of the town itself. Gambling establishments, some of the highest order, and descending by gradations to dens of the lowest character, where life itself was frequently sacrificed on the turning of a card. Thieves and unprincipled men and women, as ready to cut a throat as pick a pocket, flourished and walked the streets in certain sections in open daylight, while at night they frequented the haunts of vice and selected their victims from among the unsophisticated without fear of law or justice. In those sections it was unsafe for any one with the slightest appearance of respectability to enter after nightfall. There were, of course, the respectable sections, and numbers of people lived here and mingled in society who knew little or nothing of the darker localities, except as they were brough to their attention through the newspapers; but to the people who saw down-town life, as it may be termed, after the town was buried in darkness, except for the straggling rays from dim street lamps or the light from the saloons and gambling places, Washington was a wild and weird place.
 
 I've been around D.C. all of my life, sometimes, and never heard of Murder Bay.  I know about Bloody Point on the Cheasapeke, but not this.   Horry Clap.  I can find no mention of why Bloody Point os called Bloody Point.  Now I'll have to do that work too.  Stay tuned. Sheesh.

Full Murder Bay

WAR

Here's a view of history (American Thinker) that most of us have not been taught; certainly not today, when history is barely taught at all.

This essay certainly challenges the view most Americans have of what's really been going on over the past 100 years. The phrase that comes to mind is "Read it and weep."
 
Stu Tarlowe (via skoonj)

 
Aside: I think the degree to which individuals are repulsed by each of these two (rollover) pictures will say much about them.

 When WWI ended, European society would be forever broken.  It has not recovered. Right now, demographic rates show that Europe is not even reproducing itself at replacement levels.  Europe has lost the will to live. 

Patriotism is all but dead in Western Europe. 

Religion is dead.  Most West European nations are nowhere near American church attendance.


It is easy for us Americans to criticize the Europeans; but we did not go through the horrors of the Napoleonic Wars, World War I, and World War II in our own backyard.  58,000 dead in Vietnam over a decade was enough to bring us Americans to social disruption.  Europe saw that many die in one day during the Napoleonic Wars at Borodino.

... Russian forces fought Napoleon's men in the apocalyptic Battle of Borodino, leaving 70,000 people dead  - LA TIMES

Starting in 1914, Western Civilization collapsed.   Even the victory of 1918 by the Allies could not hide the damage.   Since then, despite its rising prosperity, the West has lost the will to live… as evinced by it collapsing demographic – and abortion rates where the West kills its unborn.   

The White race went from being supremacists to having an inferiority complex.

We in America are presently the last redoubt of the West.  We may not be in as severe a retreat as the rest of the West, but we are retreating.  We have to do some serious soul searching if Western Civilization is to survive.  Europe may be lost.

A hundred years after 1914, on the anniversary of the disaster, the West has to change its attitude and policies.   [Full Article]


In a nutshell; "Woodrow Wilson"

Certainly gives you a different perspective. Especially the part about the French and WWII--I'd never thought about it that way.

If you ever get the chance to visit Kansas City, three places you need to visit: Oklahoma Joe's BBQ (the best in KC), Mount Moriah Cemetery (to piss on Walter Cronkite's grave) and the National WWI Museum. The museum's incredible--we spent 6 hours there and plan to go back soon--but very depressing.

Europe was rotten long before 1914.
Why do you think there was so much 19thC migration to America?
Oh yeah, and screw that pseudo-fascist racist (Progressive) Wilson.

My grandfather was in France for 18 months with the AEF 42nd (Rainbow) Division. In 9 months of combat, they were actively engaged with the enemy for all but a few days, and their 28,000 man division had nearly 16,000 casualties in that time from gas, artillery, small arms and even bayonets.
I have his diary and a number of letters and all his letters but one say little about his nine months of combat, except an occasional comment like "the Boche have plenty of gas and shrapnel and play a lively tune around us". Most of the content is only day-to-day small talk about how people are doing and his often strange accommodations, as if he were simply in the army, without a war going on around him. That one letter is very moving, speaking volumes of his experience in just a few sentences.
After the Armistice, he wrote a letter to his mother on Nov 13, 1918, in which he stated "I suppose you heard the big news of two days ago. The French made a big thing of it, but most of the Americans just sighed and said 'Well, that's good.' After the horrors I’ve seen and the hell I've been through steadily since last February, I hold you and Pop much dearer to me now than ever before. It sure does make a fellow think…."
That's from nine months in hell. Imagine how other men from other nations felt, having been subjected to that same hell for four years, not 'just' nine months. Imagine how their families felt, reading enormous casualty lists day after day for four years. It must have been like our own ACW, but on a much larger scale.
I still damn Wilson for ruining the lives of both of my grandfathers, cheating me from knowing them. I realize most men coped well afterwards, but some did not, including my grandfathers, and all that blood and treasure was spent for one man's ego in a war we had no business getting involved in, a spat between inbred cousins that killed millions.

My garndfather served in the 1st South African Brigade at Delville Wood in July 1916. 1,200 men marched in; 120 marched out. (He wasn't one of those; he'd been shot and bayoneted, and carried out on a stretcher.)

And as for France: they lost the Battle of France in 1940 when they fought the Battle of Verdun in 1916.

No other war, before or since, has caused such damege to a civilization. Not even close.

The way It was The way It is



SCROLL

This is about the 4th time in 10 years that I've invoked Shelby Foote on our "changing," now toxic, culture. This pertains to The Civil War, but it's just a small piece of the S**t Fly pie.

Read the last of the Declaration "Free and independent states...." There was no union, it was a loose affiliation of nation states just like Weimar, Austria, Prussia, etc. The union was made by Lincoln, as his counterpart Von Bizmark proclaimed "by blood and iron". Lincoln was the polar opposite of Mr. Jeffersons intentions.
 
~
#####
One of these days I'm going to read again "The Articles of the Confederation and Perpetual Union". I'm pretty sure the idea of a loose confederacy similar to the European models is nowhere to be found in those pages. Of course I could be wrong about that as it's been years.

#####
All that's over now.

Hahahaha. As your Southern correspondent, I bring contrary tidings.

1. Everyone down here openly agrees that Barry0 is proof the outcome of the Civil War deserves reconsideration, being good for neither North nor South.

2. At an enchanting midnight Christmas Eve service, the Presbyterian minister told a nice story about an overnight truce caused by the birth of a general's son. Very appropriate for the occasion. But as he wrapped up this invocation to peace, for the 1st time in my life, I heard someone refer to the Northern Army as "The Enemy."

All my Southern friends laugh at this story, because it's funny, but real. And they appreciate me, as a Yankee, for understanding that.

If you want to really muddy the waters, we can talk about the vast difference between "Federal" and "North". Few people understand the chasm. A good place to start is in NYC in '63 when the New Yorkers wanted nothing to do with Federal control. To show their repulsion to this breech of their states rights, those benevolent Yankees lynched a bunch of blacks. Lincoln responded by sending an army made up of European imigrants to fire on them with shot and cannon. It was NOT north vs. south.

Huh? Irish mobs looted and murdered, burned and raped their way through town, lynched a handful of Blacks for some reason and got shot for their trouble. In the end Tammany ruled for decades and the "protesters" got exactly what they deserved, corrupt government and the distrust and ridicule of the nation. Substitute the Negro for Irish and Watts for NYC and play the game again in 100 years. Too bad Lincoln wasn't around for that one too. That's what I see.

  Leonardo Lost

This is the utterly captivating story about trying to prove that a 18th century "sketch," that sold for $20,000 is really a 15th century masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci worth $100 million.  And, a year after the documentary was made, there are more surprises.  .

At he very least you will learn more about da Vinci's art than  you might imagine.

I know, and you're welcome.

Not to be persnickety or anything the feature noted that the drawing was purchased by the owner for $22K not $20M. Also noted is that the owner who paid $22K turned down $80M for the work even though it is unauthenticated. That tells me it's not for sale. He may regret that. I'm disappointed though that we did not get a definitive disposition on the artist.

As an aside I noticed that most of the extant portraits of the Master are of hot women with only one exception, poor thing. I think that fact puts to rest the assertion of the Homosexual Mafia that Leonardo was a poofter. I mean Di Vinci not Di Caprio.

Banjo'd



President 41 knew that  senior investigator for the Resolution Trust Corporation, Jean Lewis, had recommended action by the U.S. attorney  against the Clintons in 1991.  Both Paul Tsongas and Jerry Brown confronted Clinton with the issue of his unelectabilty  during Democrat debates due to various  improprieties by him and Hillary. There was then ample reason for President Bush to make Whitewater, and Hillary's "bag lady" activities a campaign issue.  He did not.

In 2001 the outgoing Clintons trashed the White House before Bush 43's inauguration,  They also stole furniture and fixtures; they sold pardons.  Dubya was urged to open a criminal investigation, especially against Hillary, whose hands were particularly filthy.  He did not.

Had Bush 41 acted we may have been spared the Clinton years, without which corrupt influence on the media and Democrat party,  President Obama could not have been possible. Bush 43 could have spared us Senator Hillary.

I wrote these lapses by the Bush presidents off as unfortunate and misguided actions in the name of "a "kinder, gentler"  America.  However, when Bush '42  began doing world tours with Bill Clinton, I had to wonder; was he senile?; or did he view Bill's impeachment and history of criminal activity as simple  vagaries of politics?

Today I read, Jeb Bush, Son Divided Over Ted Cruz And Obamacare.  Jeb was the smart one.  Jeb was the real conservative, we are told.  So naturally I figured Jeb''s son was another kid inculcated by a lifetime of Liberal education and media brainwash.  I was wrong as wrong can be.


“I agree with this effort to defund it, or keep Texas out of the program unless we can modify it to a Texas-specific solution,” George P. Bush said, according to the Dallas Morning News.

On ABC’s This Week Jeb Bush attacked the efforts and tactics by Cruz and Tea Party Republicans to defund the law.

I know now what it's like to be played like a banjo.  Don't like it.

We are pitted against one another over liberal/conservative ideals or given Sunday, Monday, Thursday football, baseball or something ball to keep us sitting on our asses in our private coliseums and trying to forget what some entity is doing to us. Or, we are tearfully enveloped in patriotism, wrapped in red, white and blue, bombing the hell out of someone for the sake of Democracy or Corporatism while young men and women leave, get their asses blown away, come back in a box or without legs, arms etc. and for what??? Ask the Seal Team Six how that worked out for them (see current Drudge headline). At the end of the day we see the Bushes and the Clintons in a hug fest because they are on one team, the same team, and everyone else that pays for their Shiite, either with blood or cash is on the other. We are a manipulated society. We follow leaders from Palin to McCain or Obama to Christie and most of them don't know where the hell they're going. There is a group... international bankers... who own the monetary system of most nations and our military in particular. They own the medias and the largest world corporations. They control the policies of nations and make wars (police actions), assassinate anyone who doesn't cooperate and generally make life on earth a shit hole whenever it pleases them Meanwhile, half the idiots focus on the latest tech stock or trend looking to get rich and be at the so called head of the line while the other half focus on whatever free handout is available. We cannot change the system, it's been positioning itself for hundreds of years. We can only live around it to the best of our abilities. Gaining the understanding that the mantras, whether patriotism, Constitutionalism, Marxism, Socialism or insert your own ism is just another load of BS not to take seriously as a cause but to defend ourselves against. Seeing through the vale is the only freedom we will enjoy.

Amen Brother Idaho! We have another freedom though. We have the freedom to choose the good we can find and we can do. We also have the freedom of knowing without doubt that we are only visitors here and that someday we will get to see the End of those that love the evil and hate the good. That said;

Luk_22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

Colorful Brits



Notwithstanding the fact that perhaps a better title would have been the British Empire in the twentieth century or The Fall of the British Empire, this is a wonderful addition to the imperial historian’s library or to that of anyone interested in this fascinating period of history.

The programme is divided into three different parts, starting at the height of the empire when Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of India to the handing back of Hong Kong in 1997. The rise and fall of the greatest empire is portrayed with all of its contradictions and shows how Britain today has become a multi-cultural society as a result.

 
"... a wonderful addition to the imperial historian’s library..." What he said. I've only watched the first part this 2½ hour documentary,The British Empire In Colour, Found it  in the fabulous Top Documentary Films archive.

Compared to the former French colonies, at least the Brits left their former empire in a fairly civilized shape.

In Search of Shakespeare




I just finished watching this four-part Michael Wood documentary for the second time.  Utterly fascinating.  And for me puts an end to all conjecture about the true identity of Shakespeare.  It's William who is he.  And this line from Henry VIII was the clincher:

and which gifts -
Saving your mincing - the capacity
Of your soft cheverel conscience would receive,
If you might please to stretch it

.Shakespeare's father was a fine glove maker (and politician, and wheeler dealer)  who tried teaching his son that craft.  The use of cheverel, a pliable leather used in glove making,  is not by itself a clincher, but with the plethora of  historical records about the family,  it rang my bell. 

Even if you're not steeped in Shakespeare's plays (I am not), Wood's insights into  Elizabethan England (comparing it to a police state) is worth it.  Clap Calp Clap! 

And no captions Juice!

Michael Wood is a fantastic historian... In Search of the Trojan War, but my favorite, The Conquistadors. He brings Cortez and Cabeza de Vaca to life.

GREEN CRAP
"We Stand By It as a Theatrical Work"

The Greely Expedition



Watch The Greely Expedition on PBS. See more from American Experience.



In 1881, 25 men led by Adolphus Greely set sail from Newfoundland to Lady Franklin Bay in the high Arctic, where they planned to collect a wealth of scientific data from a vast area of the world’s surface that had been described as a "sheer blank." Three years later, only six survivors returned, with a daunting story of shipwreck, starvation, mutiny and cannibalism. The film reveals how poor planning, personality clashes, questionable decisions and pure bad luck conspired to turn a noble scientific mission into a human tragedy.

I watched The Greely Expedition last night and was awe struck—that I had no remembrance of ever hearing about it.  Probably because the government, out of embarrassment, tried to keep it hidden. I highly recommend it for its adventure, but mostly because of this lesson about leadership—the folly of judging a person's ability based on just a  slice of what's happening baby.  But, that's still not what I'm wanting to tell you about.  This is.

At the end of this incredible story hardship and survival, this is what PBS sees as the lesson learned.

Voiceover:  ".... for more than a century his records gathered dust until once again the Arctic captured people's attention.

We are now using Greeley's data to try and understand how global warming happened; how the climate has changed over the past 100 years

The irony is that this data is of interest today-- not because it offers an understanding of nature, but rather because it provides a key to how human beings have changed nature

Appreciate the level of arrogance it takes to assume that we have the ability, even if we wanted to, to control any long term behavior of a climate that has been evolving for 4.5 Billion years! Especially since those efforts have been proved to be politically motivated, based on manifestly silly argument rife with fraudulent facts and using unreliable data collection models.  These then are people who call themselves Progressives.  As in, progressively getting dumber. And I have been watching them for 35 years.

It's a crying shame that PBS can't offer anything more relevant, or accurate. They might as well show cartoons of a sponge in boxer shorts.

Oh, I thought the production was entertaining and, I guess, an accurate portrayal of the event. It's when they used it to push their political agenda that makes me run screaming into the night.

A Capital Hill Tour



I sort of wish this had ended at the 3:37 mark; the point had been well made.  Still, David Barton  makes a living with his tours, and customer reviews are only good marketing.  God forbid  some pasty-face Liberal accidentally take this tour and  start shooting people.

Perhaps the best recommendation comes from PFAW (People for the American Way) - the group who  engineered the Borking of Robert Bork with wholly manufactured "facts" — what we call lies—  an act that forever changed the tone of American politics, ending all civility. 

 
No.  History (manifestly history) being Borked. Anything PFWA is against is All-Amercan!

Also, first time I've noticed that YouTube offers an interactive transcript.  The sample below indicates that the actual transcribing was outsourced to India, and tasked to a radical Hindu.

   At The Cinema                           



Garbo


Like many of you, uh - senior agents,  I have immersed myself in WWII history. Like oil from a sunken freighter,  there's a seemingly endless supply of new stuff seeping out.   New to me, anyway.

 For some time NetFlix has been pushing the film "Garbo" on me. I really enjoyed "Garbo Talks," and I love biographies, so today I queued it up.  This Garbo, however, turned out to be one Juan Pujol Garcia.. This Spaniard, and a double agent during WWII,  more than anyone else  allowed the Normandy invasion to be carried off properly.  A real pistol.

Early on he went to the British embassy in Madrid and offered his services, in any capacity.  He was turned down.  So, he went to the Germans and told them he had ties in Britain, and offered his services to them.  They took him up on it.  Garcia (later named Garbo by the Brits, because he was the best actor they'd ever seen) set about setting up a network of spies all over Europe, and passing info to the Abwher (Nazi intelligence).  Except, all it was made up.  Everything.  He told them he was in London, but he'd never set foot in England, and was instead living in some Spanish fishing village, inventing  the agents, the information- all of it.  The Germans bought into it lock stock and barrel.  He tried three more times to work for the Allies, telling them that he was a trusted German spy, but was turned away. 

What finally made them sit up and take notice was a false report he sent the Germans about a massive convoy launched from England to break the siege of Malta. The Germans countered with a huge convoy to intercept this non-existent armada and,  finally, the Brits thought, holy crap!  This guy could be useful.  It made me giggle like a school girl to watch how this played out.  The money the Germans payed him actually funded British intelligence during the war.  I love happy endings.

I remember seeing this movie years ago and enjoyed it. It was great watching it play out.

Love happy endings myself . . . good thing this current day crowd wasn't around then. We'd all be talking German. This crowd would've been spiking the ball half way through the operation, taking credit.

How far we've fallen!

We saw this Billy Wilder flick last night, Rodg, and all I could think was that Jimmy Cagney was playing a younger you. He *really* didn't like commie ratbastids.

Sorry Chief, that Netflix link works for me.

Anyway, it's called "One, Two, Three". Very funny, especially if one imagines Cagney as you. Here's the blurb:

Director Billy Wilder's Cold War farce comes off at a breakneck pace that will leave your head spinning. C.J. McNamara (James Cagney) is a Coca-Cola executive who travels to Berlin to promote the product on the other side of the Iron Curtain. But he soon learns that his real job is baby-sitting his boss's teenage daughter, Scarlett (Pamela Tiffin), who has secretly married volatile Communist Otto Piffl (Horst Bucholz).

#####
Oh, this also came to mind while watching One, Two, Three. If you're a fan of the umpteen gazillion parodies of that scene in Downfall (Hitler in his bunker whining), there's about 2 minutes here that are ripe for the picking. Nazis torturing commies, what could be better? Wish I had the youtube talent to do it.

       WHAT GUMMINT Used to Do ...

    
   
Refuse to talk to or associate with, and whack with staff and cane
members of the other party,

Out-take from "American Experience  Dolley Madison (video)  Sorry for this clip quality.  At one point I became so excited I nearly passed out (as you can see) from the excitement of thinking "what if ...."    Yes.  I will argue that this toxic atmosphere was far better than the "comity" we now suffer.  No law passed without a fight is far preferable to the nanny state. If the Bladensburg dueling grounds were still active, a whole generation would today have no clue about the names Pat Leahy, Ted Kennedy, or Chuck Schumer. I rest my case.

A-holes on both sides of the aisle like to complain that all the partisan bickering is keeping them from doing the "peoples" business. Well' I'm a people, and I'd prefer that they stay out of my business. I like gridlock and I'm pretty sure the Founding Fathers set it up to be that way. The less that gets done in DC the better I like it.

Seems strange looking at that picture but around that time my grandmother, her parents and siblings, and all their belongings, left Kentucky in wagons heading for west Tennessee to look for farming oportunities.Grandma met my Grandpa in middle Tennessee during the trip and camped overnight there before continuing the trip.....
My Granddad later went to west Tennessee and got grandma and they were married.
I loved the stories my grandparents told of those days.It always sounded, to my ears, like the wild west.
