President John Quincy Adams on Freemasonry

“The second manifestation of the force of the Masonic obligation was made visible in the courts of justice… The sheriffs, whose duty it was under the laws of New York to select and summon the grand juries, were, in all the counties in which the deeds of violence against Morgan had been committed, Freemasons. Several of them had themselves been parties to the crime. They did not hesitate to make use of their power as officers of justice to screen the criminals from conviction. The jurors whom they summoned were most of them Masons, some of them participators in the offenses into which it became their civil duty to inquire.” […]

“Involuntary Brain-Wave Cessation” Memo

“The practice of Involuntary Brain-Wave Cessation (IBWC) interrogation techniques includes but is not limited to water boarding, beatings, drowning, hanging, shooting the interrogee point blank in the face, dismemberment, throwing the interrogated off tall buildings or aircraft, and running him over repeatedly with a tank. The intelligence gathered postmortem may save American lives; provided the torture can continue after the prisoner is deceased and there is a medium to relay the confession. It is therefore our opinion that the jury is still out on the interrogation efficacy of IBWC.” […]

Aboard a Slave Ship

In creating Richard Nixon’s “Southern Strategy”, Buchanan allied with, and personified the Klan fronts like the White Citizens Councils which battled tooth and nail to deny blacks their basic civil rights. This is solid fact, easily confirmed history. Buchanan was a segregationist and did use white supremacist organizations to rile white voters and canvass for voters. If it were even true that slavery brought freedom and prosperity, the first slaves had some 350 years to wait for it. […]

RFK Eulogy by Ted Kennedy, 1968

At a time when Sen. Ted Kennedy had just been diagnosed with brain cancer, and Hillary's attempt to win his endorsement failed, she brings up the memory of the Robert F. Kennedy assassination in June of 1968. She is implying, in a thinly veiled threat, that she should stay in the race because Obama might be assassinated as well. […]

If FOX News Existed Throughout History

To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, the most honest part of a newspaper is its advertisements. He also said “I do not take a single newspaper, nor read one a month, and I feel myself infinitely the happier for it.” And who can blame him, if Rupert Murdoch, the owner of FOX News, was printing his first pro-Tory tabloid rags way back in 1776. Don’t laugh. Look at the ancient bastard. […]

Bush, Kerry and the Skull and Bones

It was not the GOP defense of the Andrew Meyer tasering that angered me, it was the "liberals" defense of it and Kerry's tacit approval of it, when, in the irony of ironies, they were on the same page as the "fascist pigs" they blog about constantly. What did the far right have to say? did they condemn it? of course not, they were on the same page. Bill O'Reilly called Meyer a wimp and offered free "Don't tase me bro!" bumper stickers. CNN's Glenn "I-Should-Have-Drank-Myself-to Death-While-I-Had-the-Chance" Beck, ever the good and Christian Mormon sadistic corn-pone apron-boy and Marquis DeSade incarnate, said "Watching taser videos is a little like potato chips, you can't watch just one."

Margaret Sanger and the Forced Sterilization of Americans

"Authorities tell us that 75 % of the school-children are defective. This means that no less than fifteen million schoolchildren, out of 22,000,000 in the United States, are physically or mentally below par."The Pivot of Civilization, by Margaret Sanger. Margaret Sanger would deeply influence America’s infamous sterilization laws. Adolf Hitler, while in prison, was so influenced by the eugenics movement it would literally form the foundation for the Holocaust: the Final Solution as to the question of “race hygiene.” […]

Diogenes

An interesting story is the one where the young Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) met Diogenes, then a very old man. The powerful young conqueror, being solicitous of the old philosopher, asked what, if anything he could do for him. Diogenes replied, "I have nothing to ask but that you would remove to the other side, that you may not, by intercepting the sunshine, take from me what you cannot give". As Alexander took his leave, he said "If I were not Alexander, I would be Diogenes." […]

Smithsonian: Washington British Loyalist

Smithsonian Propaganda Piece Implies George Washington, Paul Revere Pro-British During Revolutionary War. A recent Smithsonian magazine article features a whitewash of Scottish Rite history that would be laughable if it wasn’t so misleading and obscene. The article fails to note that freemasons can splinter into opposing and warring factions and sometimes do, and that the Revolutionary War was one such example. In the Revolutionary War, French masons who were already at war with England made alliances with Washington. […]
