I remember the great articles of Future Freedom Foundation in the Journal of Historical Review, 2002-1980.
Will anyone speaking at the civil liberties symposium discuss ballot access laws as voter censorship?
Is Dr. Mantik's presentation on JFK's head wounds on Youtube.com yet? Thank you
Good Morning, I recently published a 540 book entitled Marienbad & Beyond, available world wide on Amazon that vividly describes the development of that famous spa town of Marienbad that was visited by thousands of Jewish visitors annually. The book contains a 60 page picture gallery that captures those bygone years of pre war Europe. Then the war broke out and the book describes in great detail the atrocities that some family members suffered, but also describes in detail those who miraculously survived and had the courage to rebuild Jewish communities in many parts of the world. It is truly a book of the last century with an 80 year journey around the world. Trade enquiries welcome to [email protected] Enjoy and be inspired
Another fine article on why one should criticize ones government
Mr. Carpenter, You need to review the facts before you write about Russia "annexing" the Crimea. The Crimeans had a referendum on independence. It was free and open, and televised. There were no military troops in sight, and you cannot show any photos to the contrary. Not one riot took place, not one shot was fired, and Kiev did NOTHING to stop the referendum. As to its "legitimicacy", the International Court of Justice and Human Rights has said, in an opinion (on Kosovo, I believe) that people have a right to determine their own destiny - to declare their independence from another entity. Unlike the USA with its WAR of independence , and Kosovo with its barbaric atrocities, Crimea was absolutely peaceful. By treaty with Russia, Crimea was GIVEN to the Ukraine (without permission or approval of the Crimeans themselves. In return, Russia was given the right to base its Mediterranean fleet in the Crimea, and allowed to station as many as 25,000 troops there. At any time there were never more than 10,000 - 12,000 soldiers. During the referendum, they were nowhere to be seen. The day following the referendum, a delegation went to Moscow to petition the government to join the Russian Federation. It was approved , and several weeks later the Crimea the Federation. Some annexation You are duplicitous and deceitful in your description the "annexation". You should amend you description. As a final note, you fail to note that the Obama cabal (Clinton. Susan Rice, and Victoria Nuland) engineered the Ukrainian revolution, but had no part in any attempt to stop the Crimean "annexation".
