The Greatest Story Never Told

October 28, 2011 2 comments

On Saturday, August 3, 1929, Winston Churchill, accompanied by his younger brother, Major “Jack” John Churchill (age 49), Winston’s son, Randolph Churchill (age 18), and Jack’s son, Johnny (age 20), departed England for their trip to Canada and the United States aboard the ocean liner, Empress of Austrialia.

Why they went and what they did there is the subject of Pat Riott’s, The Greatest Story Never Told: Winston Churchill and the Crash of 1929.

On the back cover he writes:

In 1929, a financial disaster of unprecedented proportions swept through the United States with lightening speed. The American people began a slow decent into an 11-year financial hell that became known as The Great Depression. Learn:

Why Winston Churchill being at the New York Stock Exchange on Black Thursday, October 24, 1929, was not “quite by chance,” as he later wrote.

Why Wall Street “plunger” Bernard Baruch was Churchill’s “favorite American.”

Why on October 29, 1929, the same evening of the crash, Churchill was guest of honor at a bizarre “celebration” attended to by over 40 “bankers and master plungers” of Wall Street at the Fifth Avenue mansion of Bernard Baruch.

Where the shiploads of gold (the real money) went in the weeks and months after the crash.

Obama ‘proof’ has yet to convince Trump

October 28, 2011 Leave a comment

Mega-millionaire Donald Trump started sounding off about his doubts regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president months ago, and now the traditional media won’t let it drop. Nor has “The Donald” changed his opinion that there remain significant questions to be answered.

The latest to raise the issue was CNN’s Piers Morgan, who confronted Trump with the challenge, “Do you accept what he produced as valid?”

Get the inside details on what could be the most serious constitutional crisis in modern history, in “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama is Not Eligible to be President.”

He was referring to the image of a Hawaiian “Certificate of Live Birth” that was released by the White House in April, a document that imaging experts have stated on the record they doubt is real.

Trump, who in April claimed credit for creating the circumstances that prompted Obama to release the “Certificate” image, was blunt.

“No, I don’t necessarily accept it,” he said.

REMEMBER OBAMA’S ARMY? ~ How America’s labor unions serve as ground troops for the radical left…

October 28, 2011 1 comment

While running for the presidency, Barack Obama made a mysterious and bizarre campaign promise.

He said that as president he would create “a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military, to advance his “objectives” for America.

The astonishing announcement, made July 2, 2008, to an audience in Colorado Springs, was ignored by virtually the entire media – except WND. Nobody bothered to ask Obama specifically what he meant, or how he could possibly assemble and fund such a massive civilian army, or why – and he never spoke of it again.

Fast-forward to late 2011.

“President Obama, this is your army! We are ready to march! Let’s take these son-of-a-b*tches out …!”

That was Teamsters union president James Hoffa, addressing a large Labor Day rally at which Obama also spoke, proclaiming brazenly what leftist radicals have long understood: America’s largest labor unions – especially the huge government employee unions like the 3-million-member National Education Association and 2-million-member Service Employees International Union – provide battalions of ground troops in the ongoing war to “fundamentally transform” America into a socialist utopia.

“But wait,” you might ask. “I know most unions lean left, some engage in street tactics and their dues strongly support Democrats. But what about Obama’s statement that his civilian army would be ‘well-funded’ by the government?”

As the scathing November 2011 issue of Whistleblower proves, “OBAMA’S ARMY” is very large – and very well-funded.

Many cities leaving Wall Street protesters alone

October 28, 2011 Leave a comment

NEW YORK (AP) — While more U.S. cities are resorting to force to break up the Wall Street protests, many others — Philadelphia, New York, Minneapolis and Portland, Ore., among them — are content to let the demonstrations go on for now.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, for example, said Friday that the several hundred protesters sleeping in Zuccotti Park, the unofficial headquarters of the movement that began in mid-September, can stay as long as they obey the law.

“I can’t talk about other cities,” he said. “Our responsibilities are protect your rights and your safety. And I think we’re trying to do that. We’re trying to act responsibly and safely.”

Still, the city made life a lot harder for the demonstrators: Fire inspectors seized a dozen cans of gasoline and six generators that powered lights, cooking equipment and laptops, saying they were safety hazards.

In the span of three days this week, police broke up protest encampments in Oakland, Calif., Atlanta and, early Friday, San Diego and Nashville, Tenn.

The Liberty Legal Foundation has filed a pair of lawsuits against the national Democratic Party

The Liberty Legal Foundation has filed a pair of lawsuits against the national Democratic Party

Use this form to become a member of the Liberty Legal Foundation Certification Class Action against the National Democratic Party.

The lawsuits don’t ask anything about Obama’s birth or for any determination from the court about his eligibility or his birth certificate.

The national Democratic Party is the defendant, and the court is asked to enjoin officials from certifying that Obama is eligible for the office for the 2012 election.

“This complaint does not request or require this court to find that President Obama is not qualified to hold the office of president of the United States. Instead, this complaint is directed toward defining the term ‘natural-born citizen’ under the Constitution of the United States, and toward negligence or intentional misrepresentations of the Democratic Party.

“This complaint requests this court to affirm the Supreme Court’s definition of ‘natural-born citizen’ as ‘all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens.'”

The Cain Enigma

October 28, 2011 Leave a comment

Sometimes life resembles fiction. Other times it resembles “Star Trek.”

Do you remember how, when things on the Enterprise got a little emotional, Spock would overload? How he was repeatedly left baffled as his Vulcan devotion to science and logic crumbled in the face of situations and questions that could not be calculated — like, why did Captain Kirk and the lithe alien with the beehive from that planet where everyone sort of looked like Ursula Andress keep looking at each other that way?

This week in American punditry was a little like that, as we sorted through a Vulcan-like hailstorm of numbers, polls, calculations and historical comparisons intended to help us gain a more complete understanding of two important aspects of the present moment: our national mood and the persistent rise of Herman Cain. Perhaps, as some commentators suggested, the two are related.
