Toward the end of the 1940s, the presence of communism in the world became apparent. Americans were afraid communism would infiltrate the American government. Eastern Europe was falling under the influence of the Soviet Union. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said an “Iron Curtain” was falling over the region.A revolution in China in 1949 put that country under communist control. Pro-communist rebels were trying to drive out French colonial rule in Indochina. 

Many Americans were worried after Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were found guilty of providing the Soviet Union with classified atomic bomb information. Because of information the Rosenbergs provided, the Soviet Union constructed its own atomic bomb. The nuclear age had begun. Americans feared a potential Soviet nuclear attack. Fallout shelters were becoming common in the United States. Students were practicing atomic bomb drills in their classrooms. The “Duck and Cover” video became popular. Elizabeth Bentley and Whittaker Chambers, former members of the Communist Party of America, stated that those who were in or supported the communist party had been successfully infiltrating the American government. With the American public growing concerned, the United States Congress passed the Smith Act in 1940. The Smith Act forbid any American citizen to join or to participate in any organization attempted to overthrow the United States government. In addition, it required all those who entered the country to register with the government. Additionally, in 1947 President Harry S. Truman signed Executive Order 9835. This law led to the creation of the Federal Employees Loyalty Program to review the status of Americans working for the national government. Workers were investigated to determine if they were loyal to America. In some cases, people lost their jobs because their loyalty to the United States was questioned. The House Committee on Un-American Activities also began investigating. An obvious question was how the government would investigating. An obvious question was how the government would

Canwell Hearings took place in Washington state in 1948. A committee of the state legislature headed by Representative Albert Canwell began intensive investigations of Communist influence, focused on faculty members at the University of Washington and resulted in the dismissal of several tenured professors as well as driving away a number of students.

Please forgive the brief sales pitch in the video, but some people have told me they prefer reading the transcripts, as they allow for more reflection.
Also, my books make the perfect annoying gift for the religious bigot or diversity fascist in your social circle (you know who I mean).

president election US Presidential Election Results, from George Washington’s unanimous selection in 1789 to Barack Obama’s handy victory over John McCain in 2008.

**Frequently Asked Questions**
1. Where are the Democratic-Republicans?
“Democratic-Republican” is an anachronistic term, used today to differentiate the early “party,” if you can call it that, founded by Jefferson and Madison, from the current Republican Party, founded in the 1850s. In the 1790s and 1800s, the Democratic-Republicans were more commonly called Republicans, and to a lesser extent Democrats. To be accurate, I have chosen to call them Republicans in this video. I have colored them Green, to distinguish from today’s Republican Party, which is colored red.

2. Isn’t Andrew Jackson a Democrat?
Yes! Andrew Jackson is the first Democratic president. He helped create the modern-day Demoratic Party. But this was only when John Quincy Adams became president in 1824-25, despite losing the popular vote. The furor this caused throughout the country, particularly among Jacksonian farmers, was cleverly cultivated for four years until Jackson ran against Adams again in 1828. By then, the Democratic Party had been formed to channel that passion into electing Jackson to the presidency. However, in 1824, during the end of the Era of Good Feelings, everyone was technically a Democratic-Republican, which I have labeled Republican, per the aforementioned point.

3. Where are John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, and Chester Arthur?
These men were never elected to the presidency. They were only elected as Vice Presidents. This is a video of election results, not presidential succession. Thus, they only appear whenever they’re on a national ballot. I’m not including 1841, 1850, 1865, and 1881, as transition years, since these are about election results.

There are two typos, not mentioned yet. One is the Era of Good Feelings, of which I have carelessly left off the “s” at the end. And also Strom Thurmond is misspelled, again leaving out the “d” at the end. These will be corrected in an updated 2013 version, after the next election is completed.

To be perfectly honest it seems to me like African Americas just don’t give a F about laws about self defense or gun rights in general. African Americans were rallying where I live about how Florida needs to repeal stand your ground laws, but even before the Trayvon Martin incident they seemed anti gun and anti self defense.

If you misuse a gun of course you should got to prison for a long time and I think most people agree with that. What I don’t understand is why they want people who are NOT causing problems in their community to suffer and be stripped away of their rights.

Why do most African Americans just seems so anti gun and anti self defense?

If you are against "Stand your ground" laws you are for thugs getting away with intimidating law abiding citizens.

In Florida, over 30% of "stand your ground" cases involve blacks who use "stand your ground" to avoid conviction for murder of gang members and drug dealers. Considering the black population of Florida is much less than 30%, the "stand you ground" defense is used much more frequently by blacks.

Why do you want to deprive blacks of legal self defense, especially considering many of these live in areas where intimidation prevents blacks from speaking up about crimes?

 

The remarks Ms. Power has made on a wide range of foreign policy issues tell quite a story, according to a piece by Charles C. Johnson which appeared yesterday at The Blaze:

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/07/16/here-are-some-of-samantha-powers-most-controversial-criticisms-of-america-ahead-of-senate-debate-on-u-n-ambassador-nomination/

If we couple this with the recent agreement between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Republican leaders about filibustering, it looks like we are in all likelihood in for more groveling at the UN before America’s enemies. At least, that is how it seems from my perspective.

Your comments?

As wacko as this will sound, the people Obama chooses are globalists. They want the West to fall because until that happens, the rest of their plans can’t take place. Its why our culture, traditions, and way of life are now classified as "offensive" to the rest of the world and she certainly wouldn’t want to offend anyone, except us of course. I believe approving Power was part of the deal to keep the from having votes per the majority rather than 60 in the Senate. The Democrats had approved far fewer appointees in the Bush administration at this point in the presidency than the Republicans have for Obama. The idea is to make take the US out of the leadership position in the world and sign on to the World Court so the UN has authority over us.

 

…. will they have? How it is different from the House Committee currently meeting? The same type of committee "nailed" Nixon so I assume they would have much more power to subpoena, indite, etc?

Related to this… today there was a charge by Congressman Wolf, (R) of Virginia, that the Benghazi survivors were still being asked to sign non-disclosure forms…. as late as a few weeks ago! Probably accurate, but why THIS late?

A "charge" is reflective of a lack of evidence or proof. It’s an allegation designed to support that person’s bias.

Wolf is simply throwing "red meat" to the Republican Base.

Congress will define the powers of the committee.

A select or special committee of the United States Congress is a congressional committee appointed to perform a special function that is beyond the authority or capacity of a standing committee. A select committee is usually created by a resolution that outlines its duties and powers and the procedures for appointing members. Select and special committees are often investigative in nature, rather than legislative, though some select and special committees have the authority to draft and report legislation.
