  • Adriane shared from Hillary (And Bill): The Sex Volume by Victor Thorn
    among the demonstrators.”478 One of these “agents” was none other than Bill Clinton, for there were “later allegations of CIA collusion by and around Bill Clinton at Oxford.  One former agency official would claim that the future president was a full-fledged ‘asset,’ that he was regularly ‘debriefed,’ and thus that he informed on his American friends in the peace movement in Britain.  Similarly, he was said to have informed on draft resisters in Sweden during his brief trip there with Father McSorley.”479 Bill Clinton was not only a draft-dodger, but a snitch that ratted out...
  • Adriane shared from Hillary (And Bill): The Sex Volume by Victor Thorn
    During the May 1997 presidential visit to Holland, our Dutch hosts rolled out the red carpet.  Each Royal Palace room was stocked with food and a complete liquor bar for every staff member.  A very thoughtful gesture, I thought, since we were getting in so late – a snack and a drink sounded great.  The next morning, as we were leaving for Air Force One and our next country, the Dutch military aide pulled me aside to complain.  “Your people took all of the liquor,” he said under his breath, obviously embarrassed for me.  “And they stole crystal and china, too,” he added.  He was...
  • Adriane shared from The Peanut Allergy Epidemic: What's Causing It and How to Stop It by Heather Fraser
    And finally, if sympathetic courts allowed litigation from concerned parents, the government would intercede with legislation to control it as it did in the United States in 1986 with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. This Act provided a no-fault alternative to the tort system in which the US federal government cushioned the relationship between the public and the pharmaceutical companies with new rules and money. The door to possible litigation brought by parents for vaccine injury in their children was firmly closed in the US in 2011 following Bruesewitz v. Wyeth. In this case parents...

  • Adriane shared from The Peanut Allergy Epidemic: What's Causing It and How to Stop It by Heather Fraser
    Doctors knew that as the number and potency of vaccines increased, so, too, would the risk of side effects that included soaring IgE and atopy.1 Anaphylaxis immediately following vaccination had finally become an “obstacle” to the routine jab, doctors observed.2 But any suspicion that peanut allergy was precipitated somehow by vaccination, however, was quickly muffled and trapped within a complex weave of conflicting agendas held by government, medical authorities, pharmaceutical corporations, and the media. At stake in any hint of culpability were the reputations and incomes of doctors and...

  • Adriane shared from The Revolt Against the Masses: How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class by Fred Siegel
    This wasn’t a brief episode, but the very core of Mencken’s political being. He proudly proclaimed in his columns for the Baltimore Sun papers that in the battle between autocracy and democracy, he wanted to see democracy go down. Mencken was enamored not only of the Kaiser’s autocratic rule but also with “the whole war machine.” He mocked Allied outrage over German killings of Belgian civilians, as well as the sinking of the Lusitania, which brought the death of 124 Americans. Mencken advised Theodore Dreiser, a fellow German American: “There can never be any compromise in future...

    Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e., Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.* Sura 47, verse 4 sanctions the taking of captives as spoils of war: So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on...
  • Adriane shared from It IS About Islam: Exposing the Truth About ISIS, Al Qaeda, Iran, and the Caliphate (The Control Series Book 3) by Glenn Beck
    It is clear, however, that Jefferson was, to put it mildly, suspicious of Islam. He compared the faith with Catholicism, and believed that neither had undergone a reformation. Both religions, he felt, suppressed rational thought and persecuted skeptics. When combined with the power of the state, religion would corrupt and stifle individual rights. Islam, to Jefferson’s mind, provided a cautionary tale of what happened when a faith insisted on combining religious and political power into one. As a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, Jefferson cited Islam as an example for why Virginia...

  • Adriane shared from The Revolt Against the Masses: How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class by Fred Siegel
    If liberals have a hard time understanding their own history, it’s at least in part because they’ve so successfully avoided dealing with Herbert Croly—who he was and what he hoped to achieve. Croly’s moralistic streak led his detractors to describe him as “Crolier than thou,” but his was an unconventional kind of morality. He was born in 1869 to David Croly and Jane Cunningham Croly, both successful New York journalists. David Croly, a sexual reformer who believed that copulatory repression bred social disorder, was a founding member of the Church of Humanity, an institution dedicated...
  • Adriane shared from The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House by Kate Andersen Brower
    One butler remembers chatting with one of Carter’s sons, who was in his twenties at the time. He was sitting in the family kitchen reading an article in the newspaper about rising rent prices in Washington. He looked up from the paper at the butler and said: “I’m glad that I’m allowed to stay here in the White House.” The butler turned to him and said: “Yes. That’s one reason I’m in here, working two jobs because the rent costs so much. I’m struggling.” Carter’s son was shocked. He couldn’t believe this dignified man had to work two jobs just to pay the rent. “You come...
