Helmer Reenberg: House Minority Leader Gerald Ford & NO District Attorney Jim Garrison in 1967

This post was originally posted at FreeStatePlus on WordPress

Gerald Ford was already the House Minority Leader by the time these interviews were done. And was put on the Warren Commission by President Lyndon Johnson because he was trusted by Congressional Democrats and Republicans and seen as a responsible intelligent Republican. Who would seek the truth and not try to score political points from the investigation. But looking back now I think these conspiracy theories especially centering around Lee Harvey Oswald not being either the sole assassin, or the only person involved in the JFK assassination, doesn’t look so crazy fifty-years later. And I believe Jim Garrison looks like a more credible figure now. And that it looks possible, reasonable that someone other than Lee Harvey Oswald was behind the JFK assassination.

Conky Joe: Video: NFL 1973-The Don Shula Show-Super Bowl 8-January 14, 1974

Obviously a Miami Dolphins local TV show with the so-called host of it not there to ask Head Coach Don Shula any tough or critical questions. But having said that, forget about the score of Super 8 between the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings, 23-7. The game looked like a 28-0 or 35-10 game, where one team could basically did everything they wanted to do on offense and dominate the first half. And play keep away in the second half, as well as shut down the other team’s offense in the first half at least. Because sometimes the final score in football games are misleading. Because you could have one team dominate the other really badly without the score indicating that. And making the game look a lot closer than it actually was. Which is what the Dolphins did, completely dominate the Vikings in Super Bowl 8. To the point that the Vikings were never actually in the football game with a real chance of winning. They Vikings fell behind early and never got into the game.

Tom Woods: Video: War: Big Government's Best Friend

This post was originally posted at FreeStatePlus on WordPress

War is big governments best friend. Because it gives Statists the ultimate excuse to limit individuals freedom. Because they can say, “look we are at war and we have to limit your freedom for your own good and for the country’s own good. So we can track down people who are working for the enemy. And we can see whose speaking for the other side. Who are the patriots and the traitors.” Which is an excuse that Authoritarians use in the Middle East like in Egypt and Syria. Instead of Neoconservatives saying that the 1960s, especially the Baby Boom Generation have ruined America especially in traditional America. Which they do anyway, they can appeal to America’s patriotic sense and roots. And say, “we’re at war and will always be at war until the enemy is defeated. And because of this, individual freedom, especially personal freedom needs to be limited. So we stamp out the enemy and separate the real Americans from the American traitors.”
