If Dwight Eisenhower could somehow give his 1953 “Cross of Iron” address and his 1961 warning about the military-industrial complex to the American people today, I truly believe he’d be dismissed by the mainstream media (MSM) as a Putin puppet and as repeating Kremlin talking points. Why? Because Ike advocated for negotiation and peace instead of war; he documented how spending on weapons was intrinsically wasteful and a bane to democratic society; and he challenged citizens to be alert and knowledgeable, ready to take action against the growing power of a corporate-military nexus supported and strengthened by Congress. To mark Ike’s integrity and wisdom, and also to ...

Parallels Between The Roman Empire And The USA
Post Date: 2023-03-28 00:56:07 by Charles_Byrd
The Roman Empire and the United States are history’s most influential powers. Though separated by time and geography, there are some striking parallels between their rise, development, and potential decline. In this blog post, we’ll dive into the similarities and differences between these two mighty civilizations, focusing on the past 40 years of the United States. Click for Full Text!

A forgotten hero stopped the My Lai massacre 50 years ago today
Post Date: 2023-03-24 00:20:05 by Charles_Byrd
Everybody's heard of the My Lai massacre — March 16, 1968, 50 years ago today — but not many know about the man who stopped it: Hugh Thompson, an Army helicopter pilot. When he arrived, American soldiers had already killed 504 Vietnamese civilians (that's the Vietnamese count; the U.S. Army said 347). They were going to kill more, but they didn't — because of what Thompson did. I met Thompson in 2000 and interviewed him for my radio program on KPFK in Los Angeles. He told the story of what happened that day, when he and his two-man crew flew over My Lai, in support of troops who were looking for Viet Cong fighters. Click for Full Text!

A Highway to Peace or a Highway to Hell?
Post Date: 2023-03-21 18:31:38 by Charles_Byrd
In April 1953, newly elected President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a retired five-star Army general who had led the landings on D-Day in France in June 1944, gave his most powerful speech. It would become known as his “Cross of Iron” address. In it, Ike warned of the cost humanity would pay if Cold War competition led to a world dominated by wars and weaponry that couldn’t be reined in. In the immediate aftermath of the death of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, Ike extended an olive branch to the new leaders of that empire. He sought, he said, to put America and the world on a “highway to peace.” It was, of course, never to be, as this country’s emergent ...

All the conspiracy that's fit to print

When is a single-source story good enough for The New York Times? When it appears to confirm a 40-year-old Democratic conspiracy theory. Peter Baker, the Times' chief White House correspondent, published Saturday a bombshell report, "A Four-Decade Secret: One Man's Story of Sabotaging Carter's Re-Election." Click for Full Text!

Statues of 'old white men' like the Duke of Wellington and Admiral Lord Nelson could be destroyed because they may be 'offensive' to 'diverse modern public', Welsh government advises

Statues of historical 'old white men' such as Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington could be removed from public view in Wales in order to 'set right the historical narrative' and prevent offence to a 'diverse modern public'. Monuments have been subject to an audit in Wales since the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020, when a statue of slave trader Thomas Picton was removed from Cardiff City Hall. Click for Full Text!

“Women as a constituency” weren’t active in the early pro-choice movement
Post Date: 2023-03-14 23:25:00 by Charles_Byrd
The first pro-abortion reformers were men. It was pro-choice men that originally lobbied for abortion to be legalized. Kristin Luker, historian said: “The reaction of state legislators of the 1960s, when asked what role women had played in securing passage of the Beilenson bill [which legalized abortion in California before Roe V Wade], could best be epitomized as a blank stare. All of them could name individual women who had been active in the reform group California Committee on Therapeutic Abortion (CCTA), but none of them believed that women as a constituency were central to the issue.” Click for Full Text!

50 years ago, the ‘Bernard Nathanson of Japan’ began his campaign to save the lives of the unborn

If asked to name a life-related event in 1973 that sent a shock wave felt by millions, Roe v Wade would come to the mind of many MercatorNet readers, I would imagine. This year, though, also marks the 50th anniversary of another event from the other side of the Pacific. It is a story of deep pro-life conviction and moral courage which is unknown outside Japan.

Losing our future by destroying our past
Post Date: 2023-03-13 01:26:48 by Charles_Byrd
There is a growing war against the past. Our heroes of yesteryear, even George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, are under attack. I was disheartened to see ads for Hulu presenting a series based on the discredited 1619 Project. As I’ve noted in a column many months ago, the 1619 Project postulates that America began in 1619, when the first black slaves were brought here—not 1776, when the founders declared independence.

The Secret History of the British and American Elite Who Worked for Hitler
Post Date: 2023-03-12 01:37:13 by Charles_Byrd
Susan Ronald’s meticulously researched book, Hitler’s Aristocrats: The Secret Power Players in Britain and America Who Supported the Nazis, 1923-1941, begins with a dramatis personae including lords, ladies, barons, dukes, duchesses, and many more titles. It also includes a veritable who’s who of the industrialists, businessmen, bankers, socialites, and media barons of the time from both sides of the Atlantic. But the most prominent British name on the list is Edward, Duke of Windsor, who ascended the throne in 1936 as King Edward VIII, abdicated less than a year later and, in 1937, married Wallis Simpson, an American socialite. The first chapter describes how disappointed ...

The Grimké Sisters: The First American Women Who Labored to Ensure Freedom For All
Post Date: 2023-03-10 01:38:12 by Charles_Byrd
Ask Americans with an interest in their country’s pre-Civil War history to name a famous abolitionist, you’ll likely hear of William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, John Quincy Adams, John Brown or Abraham Lincoln. We should get to know the women who championed an end to slavery too. There were many, and I have my favorites to tell you about here. The very first African American woman to deliver anti-slavery lectures in public was free-born Maria W. Stewart (1803-1879). By the social conventions of her day, women weren’t supposed to take on such controversial issues, let alone do so in plain view of an audience. It’s also to her credit that she is believed to be the ...

Lessons Not Learned From the Pentagon Papers
Post Date: 2023-03-03 03:09:51 by Charles_Byrd
In June 1971, at the height of the Vietnam War, a US government military analyst with the Rand Corporation and senior research associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dr. Daniel Ellsberg[1], released to the New York Times and Washington Post what became known as the “Pentagon Papers”, 47 volumes of confidential records comprising some 7000 pages of secret government reports that documented the US involvement in “dirty tricks” and illegal actions under the Presidencies of Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon. The documentsdemonstrated that successive US Presidents had lied to the American people, that false flags had been organized, “fake ...

US Government Has Killed More Than 20 Million People In 37 “Victim Nations” Since WW2
Post Date: 2023-03-03 03:07:32 by Charles_Byrd
The “U.S. government” is comprised of a wide variety of different people, many of which are good and decent human beings. So this obviously does not represent everyone who works in the government. More importantly, this does not represent U.S. citizens either, so please do not fall into the trap of defending the crimes of your government, because you feel yourself personally under attack. Identify yourself with integrity, humanity and Truth, not a criminal government or group. After the catastrophic attacks of September 11 2001 monumental sorrow and a feeling of desperate and understandable anger began to permeate the American psyche. A few people at that time attempted to ...

The Impossibility of Equality
Post Date: 2023-03-03 02:20:27 by Charles_Byrd
Probably the most common ethical criticism of the market economy is that it fails to achieve the goal of equality. Equality has been championed on various “economic” grounds, such as minimum social sacrifice or the diminishing marginal utility of money (see the chapter on taxation above). But in recent years economists have recognized that they cannot justify egalitarianism by economics, that they ultimately need an ethical basis for equality. Click for Full Text!

The Reckoning That Wasn’t
Post Date: 2023-03-01 18:08:43 by Charles_Byrd
Over the course of many evenings in 1952 and 1953, when I was a kindergartner, my family gathered around a hand-me-down TV in the Chicago housing project where we lived to watch Victory at Sea. With stirring music and solemn narration, this 26-part documentary produced by NBC offered an inspiring account of World War II as a righteous conflict in which freedom had triumphed over evil, in large part thanks to the exertions of the United States. The country had waged a people’s war, fought by millions of ordinary citizens who had answered the call of duty. The war’s outcome testified to the strength of American democracy. Here was history in all its seductive and terrible ...

Joe Biden Disparages George Washington on President’s Day With Trip to Kyiv

Rather than celebrating President’s Day in the United States on Monday, February 20, President Joe Biden went to Kyiv to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. In direct contradiction to President George Washington’s 1796 farewell address, Biden delivered another $500 million in military aid to keep bloodying the Ukraine killing fields.

The Triggers of History
Post Date: 2023-02-27 16:37:53 by Charles_Byrd
The London School of Economics has decided that it will not use dreadful words such as Christmas, Easter, Lent, and Michaelmas to designate its term times and holidays. Presumably, its management now congratulates itself that it has made a step toward true diversity, equity, and inclusion, the modern equivalent—irony of ironies—of faith, hope, and charity. An article in The Daily Telegraph was headed “The LSE’s decision is not just drearily woke. It’s completely pointless.” Alas, if only this were true, if only the decision were merely pointless; but on the contrary, the decision was extremely pointed. It was part of a tendency—I won’t go so far as ...

The Universality of the Southern Cause: The Confederacy and Naples
Post Date: 2023-02-26 20:42:10 by Charles_Byrd
Some years ago (summer 1974) when I was completing a doctorate in history and political science in Europe, I made a journey south from Rome to the Italian city of Naples. Earlier, before traveling to Europe on a Richard Weaver Fellowship, I had managed to read two engrossing volumes on the Bourbon monarchy of the Kingdom of Naples by Sir Harold Acton. The old Kingdom of Naples (or of “Two Sicilies,” as it was formally called) had been conquered by the freebooter Giuseppe Garibaldi and his “Red Shirts,” in cooperation with the northern, liberal Italian Kingdom of Piedmont Savoy, in the early months of 1861. That resolutely traditionalist country, basically all of ...

FDR’s Raw Deal for African Americans
Post Date: 2023-02-26 01:44:00 by Charles_Byrd
The American Institute for Economic Research was formed 90 years ago to combat the New Deal, a series of vast socioeconomic experiments perpetrated by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the Dr. Jekyll of Hyde Park, New York. All of those experiments failed to extricate Americans from the Great Depression, and severely injured members of minority groups, including blacks. Yet for the better part of a century, the US, state, and local governments have run a disinformation campaign, primarily through the government school system, that asserts that FDR “saved” America from the Great Depression, and in the process aided sundry downtrodden groups, including women, American Indians, ...

When President Grover Cleveland Rejected Congressional Pressure for War against Spain
Post Date: 2023-02-24 04:55:18 by Charles_Byrd
During the Tuesday episode of the Ron Paul Liberty Report, host Ron Paul answered questions that viewers had submitted. In the process of answering one of the questions, Paul mentioned that there was an instance in which President Grover Cleveland, who Paul has praised before, stood up against congressional pressure for the United States to go to war. While Paul did not go into details about the instance when mentioning it in his answer, what Cleveland did was refuse to go to war with Spain in the name of aiding an insurrection in Cuba.

The Destruction of Washington Street Methodist as a Metaphor
Post Date: 2023-02-24 01:05:50 by Charles_Byrd
As Northern victory drew near in 1865, on the night of February 17/18 troops under General William T. Sherman set fire to the Washington Street Methodist Church in Columbia, South Carolina. Legend has it – highly plausible – that the soldiers intended to burn down the First Baptist Church. But when approached and queried by Union soldiers as to the Baptist church’s location, First Baptist’s quick-thinking sexton directed the soldiers around the corner to the Methodist church. Within minutes, that church was in flames. So goes the story.[1] Without a doubt, however, the First Baptist Church was where the first day’s meeting of the secession convention met, on ...

How the Founders Read Montesquieu
Post Date: 2023-02-22 20:02:08 by Charles_Byrd
Scholars and especially commentators in need of a quotation frequently cite Charles Louis de Secondat, Baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu to support the idea of a “mixed” constitution with democratic, aristocratic, and monarchical elements. Rarely, though, are Montesquieu’s works, especially The Spirit of Laws, explored at length. Montesquieu is more likely to be plumbed for quotes to diminish current politicians rather than to be read seeking wisdom. Some writers even call him a prophet. Once in a while, however, engaging Montesquieu in this way can produce something thoughtful, like this piece by Harvey Mansfield, but that is rare. What has long been needed is a ...

Naval Academy Continues War on Confederate Heroes, Symbols
Post Date: 2023-02-22 19:52:43 by Charles_Byrd
The U.S. Naval Academy has renamed a building that once honored Matthew Fontaine Maury, the founder of modern oceanography. It is now named for President Jimmy Carter, a failed president whose most significant achievement was ordering the failed rescue mission of American hostages in Iran. The reason Maury had to go: He served in the Confederate Navy, all things Confederate now being the subject of a communist campaign of lies and hate. Click for Full Text!

The war on drugs: 50 years of death and failure
Post Date: 2023-02-15 20:37:16 by Charles_Byrd
It is undeniable that the war on drugs has failed. In his speech at the United Nations, Colombian President Gustavo Petro fell short of offering what the world is still waiting for: a solution to the problem. In 2016, at a special UN assembly, former president Juan Manuel Santos also spoke about the lost war on drugs and emphasized the need to rethink the approach. The interventions of Petro and Santos are the first steps toward a possible solution. The war on drugs began 50 years ago when US president Richard Nixon declared “an all-out offensive” against what he considered to be “enemy number one”: illegal drugs. This war was immediately extended to Colombia. In the ...
