Podcast Episode 224: The Constitution and Executive Power | Brion McClanahan Author & Historian

A leftist professor wants to limit executive power. This should not be news in the Age of Trump. Every leftist wants to do that, but this leftist might be slightly different. Professor Julia Azari wrote a piece for Vox arguing that the Constitution doesn’t do enough to limit executive power and suggests amending it to do so.

We need to reign in the Executive.  The problem is NOT BHO44 or DJT45.  The DOWG weren’t perfect and they didn’t do enough to prevent the President from becoming a King. Or worse, a Deity.

I think of how some of my Depression Era relatives “worshiped” FDR and the fights when certain uncles who were war vets pointed out his flaws (i.e., women), claims that just weren’t true (i.e., he saved us from the Depression), and “conspiracy theories” (i.e., he caused Pearl Harbor; he led us into war; he was a socialist that gave away the world at Yalta).

Maybe that where I get my “suspicion” that ALL the Conspiracy Theories have a grain of truth at the core AND SOME even are true!

Argh!

TINFOILHAT: The Pearl Harbor Myth and FDR’s role

The Pearl Harbor Myth: Rethinking the Unthinkable

*** begin quote ***

To most Americans, manipulating one’s nation into war is something done by foreign tyrants – not our own leaders. Since 1942 U.S. history has been distorted by the idea that presidents simply do not do what Roosevelt’s enemies said he did.

*** end quote ***

I remember my Uncles always maintaining that FDR knew about Pearl Harbor. 

I don’t know what evidence they had for those beleifs but I just assumed everyone knew that.

Until I got to Skrule — and it wasn’t even a Gooferment Skrule — the good Nuns and some of the Brothers taught what was in the text book. Some of the good Brothers said that not everything in print was correct. 

Interesting.

If the Victors write the history and the politicians and bureaucrats pay for the textbooks, what do you think gets written?

Certainly not the truth!

Argh!

GOVERNACIDE: Stalin DID order the Katyn massacre; FDR covered it up

Stalin DID order the execution of 3,500 Polish soldiers according to newly discovered testimony of U.S. officer who watched Nazis exhume the bodies

U.S. researcher Krystyna Piorkowska found testimony from U.S. Lt Col John H Val Vliet from May 1945
In the statement he says he witnessed Nazis exhuming the bodies of 3,500 Polish soldiers killed under Stalin

Vliet’s testimony fuels speculation that the U.S. tried to cover up the genocide to keep the Soviets on their side for the end of the war

Another report that Van Vliet made a few days later in Washington is considered missing. This has fueled speculation that the U.S. government helped cover up Soviet responsibility for the massacre out of fear that saying the truth would anger Stalin, whom the Allies were counting on to help them defeat Germany and Japan in World War II.

How far has the Gooferment strayed from morality?

When you sleep with the Devil, you become one.

FDR may have crept up a little on my “worst President” list. 

Argh!
