right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing

Well-written, and flaming.

That is great..more people can discover this thoughtful and intelligent man.

coiler

Yes, he is great...Kiro could do better.

PugetSound

hartman also wrote an interesting book on the jfk assasination.

Duffman

I have not read 'Ultimate Sacrifice' - does he conclude that JFK was done in by mafia and/or Cubans?

PugetSound

Duff
They pin it on the mafia.

joanie

So did Jack Anderson and he gave a lot of information to support his contention it was a mafia hit.

Hartmann - 9-12 PST. Hope I can watch. He was interviewed by Seder last Sunday and he said a court in the late 1800s determined corporations were not persons. "Because of a mistaken interpretation of a Supreme Court reporter's notes in an 1886 railroad tax case, corporations are now legally considered "persons," equal to humans and entitled to many of the same protections guaranteed only to humans by the Bill of Rights - a clear contradiction of the intent of the Founders of the United States. The results of this "corporate personhood" have been" you'll have to go to the link for the rest.

Hartmann found the actual archived document in the chief justice's own handwriting showing that the decision went against the corporations. The judge died before the decision was printed. I guess once printed, it's law? Hard to believe. But then, Clinton made a lot of great executive orders that didn't get printed before Bush overruled them.

To me that's putting people, ideas and decisions under the control of paper. Once it's on paper, can't be changed even if it's wrong . . . What a mess.

Gusto

We think CIA agents involved with anti-Castro Cubans were likely involved in the JFK hit and some Mafia contacts were part of the plan. They were all in bed together because they wanted to get rid of Castro. Google names like "Sheffield Edwards," "Robert Maheu," "Santos Trafficante," and Executive Action."

Thom is One of Us, to be sure.

nevets

Hey Joanie, they must have been slow writers in them times since Mr. Justice Harlan who wrote the opinion died in 1911.

nevets

Now I know you said Chief Justice, but still, 2 years. That is still slow.

joanie

So, are you saying that Hartmann is wrong or that I made a mistake in something?

Does having the wrong judge - the opinion may not have been written by the chief justice - change the fact that a decision was printed incorrectly?

nevets

Well you believed him enough to post what he said to Seder as fact here on BW. You make the call on how such a mix up could be made. I'm just letting you know some facts so you don't get so confused.

joanie

Little more checking offers this:

"However, in writing up the case's headnote - a commentary that has no precedential status - the Court's reporter, a former railroad president named J.C. Bancroft Davis, opened the headnote with the sentence: "The defendant Corporations are persons within the intent of the clause in section 1 of the Fourteen Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which forbids a State to deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

Oddly, the court had ruled no such thing. As a handwritten note from Chief Justice Waite to reporter Davis that now is held in the National Archives said: "we avoided meeting the Constitutional question in the decision." And nowhere in the decision itself does the Court say corporations are persons."

This is the meat of his finding. Why it didn't get changed - he says "laziness" on the part of the court or something else, I don't know.

Read it for yourself.

joanie

No, I posted what I thought he said. I am not a robot. I can get it wrong. Can you get things wrong? Or would you ever admit it?

joanie

Actually, I got it right. Just not the details. A decision according to Hartmann denying corporations personhood was incorrectly printed and corporations have benefited ever since.

Listening to a radio is not a perfect way to get all the facts. Don't you agree? That's why we blog, read articles, watch CSpan etc etc etc. Isn't it Steven?

sparky

Hi Gusto!

coiler

E. Howard Hunt.

nevets

Yes Joanie, you got it right except the part of the Chief Justice died before it was printed. And YES that is why we read, watch, and blog. And in Sparkys case, lie.

PugetSound

ouch, that's gotta hurt.

Gusto

Hunt yes vg, coiler. Hunt was involved in the Cuban situation for years. Another name to research is David Atlee Phillips. Hunt outed Phillips as a conspirator before he died.

Here's a Hunt interview: http://www.saintjohnhunt.com/testament.html

if you read hunt's own book it is exactly the opposite of what was written in his son's, saint john hunt, story.
