President Laurens not Lincoln 1st Thanksgiving
This is a Brief History of the Presidential establishment of a Thanksgiving Day by the United States of America. On Wednesday November 25, 2009 President Barack Obama addressed "We The People" pardoning a turkey and providing a brief history lesson on the establishment of Thanksgiving Day. The President mistakenly maintained the Abraham Lincoln established the first Thanksgiving Day in the United States of America during the crisis of the Civil War. In actuality the Continental Congress and President Henry Laurens established the first Thanksgiving Day on November 1, 1777 shortly after learning of the official surrender of British troops in Saratoga New York during the Revolutionary War. Many Articles of Confederation U.S. Presidents followed Lauren's examples. Additionally, 220 years ago to the very day of Thanksgiving 2009 President George Washington Proclaimed November 26, 1789 as Thanksgiving Day for the United States. Although this author who has great respect for the historic office now held by President Barack Obama it is important, however, that this misnomer be corrected in a respectful and scholarly fashion.

Lincoln Highway Groundbreaking - 1913
A promotional film for the Lincoln Highway from 1913, this short reel shows a groundbreaking ceremony for Carl G. Fisher's dream project, the first coast-to-coast automobile highway. Conceived by headlight entrepreneur Fisher, also said to be the first car dealer in US history, the man, like many an American, seems to have become a visionary in the eternal quest of making the almighty buck. In fact, the Lincoln Highway was the first memorial to Abraham Lincoln, predating the monument in Washington, DC by perhaps more than ten years. Although Thomas Edison and Theodore Roosevelt were active boosters and financiers of Fishers idea, it is hard to say if these are the two men orating in this film. Hundreds of towns across the US lobbied to have the Lincoln Highway pass through their way with songs, articles and public events dedicated to the new interstate. This appears to be one such film. Ultimately, the highway would follow a historically American path, stretching from Times Square in New York City, along the Chambersburg Turnpike so associated with Gettysburg, then in tandem with portions of the legendary Pony Express, up and over the dreaded Donner Pass and on to the final destination of Lincoln Park in San Francisco, California. Carl G. Fishers Lincoln Highway would go on to become the major influence of Eisenhowers future Interstate System and Germanys Autobahn. See more at: www.weirdovideo.com

Collecting 19th Century Authentic Newspapers
Collecting authentic rare and historic newspapers from the 1800's can be exciting, rewarding and surprisingly affordable. Daily newspaper reports of America's tumultuous 19th Century included first hand accounts of historic turning-points like..... the Louisiana Purchase...the Civil War...and Spanish-American conflict. As cries of "manifest destiny" signaled America's unbridled expansion west, newspapers became a crucial link for a people suddenly united in a common quest that would set their young nation on a course of unprecedented and historic prosperity. There are many sought after "holy grails" from the 19th century, including: o President Abraham Lincoln's Assassination o Battle of Gettysburg and the Gettysburg Address o Battle of the Alamo o Deaths of Jessie James and Billy the Kid o Issue from Tombstone Arizona (Tombstone Epitaph) o Winslow Homer's "Snap the Whip" Of course, select accounts of the most historic & desired events of 19th century America are available for premium prices. However, a wealth of fascinating original newspapers from the vast inventory of Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers are available for much less...often as little as $30 - $50. These include first-hand news from the War of 1812, Yankee & Confederate Civil War battle reports, slave ads from the South, the California Gold Rush with outlaw & Indian battle accounts, the Mormon migration to Utah and fascinating reports of when baseball was in its infancy. The "Old West" and America's westward expansion are represented in genuine newspapers from California, Utah, Nevada, Montana, and Arizona. You'll also find affordable issues from the illustrated press which graphically documented every aspect of 19th century America in the pages of Harper's Weekly, Frank Leslie's Illustrated, Gleason's, Ballou's, and The London Illustrated News. Whether your interest is in the War of 1812, westward expansion and the gold rush, the Civil War, and/or the Wild West, original newspapers provide an excellent view of history in context. History is never more fascinating than when when it's read from the day it was first reported. If you love history... you deserve to have it in your hands. Rare newspapers make this possible. Please enjoy.

His main role was to interpret the will of the gods by studying the flight of the birds (whether they are flying in groups/alone, what noises they make as they fly, direction of flight and what kind of birds they are), known as "taking the auspices." The ceremony and function of the augur was central to any major undertaking in Roman society--public or private--including matters of war, commerce, and religion. Consider the words of the Roman historian Livy, who writes (VI.41): auspiciis hanc urbem conditam esse, auspiciis bello ac pace domi militiaeque omnia geri, quis est qui ignoret?

CLASSIFIED, CENSORED, & SUPPRESSED 6 Part documentary. Support production crew, purchase DVD's here: http://www.wingtv.net/evidenceofrevision.html HISTORY MAY BE REVISED EVEN AS IT IS BEING WRITTEN "Evidence of Revision" is a 5-DVD, 8 hour long documentary series whose purpose is to present the publicly unavailable and even suppressed historical audio, video, and film recordings largely unseen by the American public relating to the assassination of the Kennedy brothers, the little known classified "Black Ops" actually used to intentionally create the massive war in Viet Nam, the CIA "mind control" programs and their involvement in the RFK assassination and the Jonestown massacre and other important truths of our post-modern time. The U.S. Government's Orwellian "Office of Public Diplomacy" has been in existence in various forms and under various names since World War ONE. The union of American governance and American corporate interests began in Abraham Lincoln's day and the massaging of "public truth" began even before the Roman Empire. The more you know about "real history" versus "official history", the better equipped you are to see behind the lies of our times, even as they are told to you. Some of us knew what was really happening even before the second plane hit the tower.

The Assassination of John F. Kennedy Pt 1
President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time on November 22, 1963, while on a political trip to Texas. He was shot twice, in the neck and head, and was pronounced dead at 1:00 p.m. Lee Harvey Oswald, the principal suspect, was arrested at a movie theater at about 1:50 p.m. He denied shooting anyone, claiming he was a patsy, and was killed by Jack Ruby on November 24, before he could be indicted or tried. Jack Ruby was then arrested and convicted of murder. He successfully appealed his conviction and death sentence but he got ill and died as a date for his new trial was being set. President Johnson created the Warren Commission—chaired by Chief Justice Earl Warren—to investigate the assassination. It concluded that Oswald was the lone assassin, but this remains disputed by some scholars, eyewitnesses, and the 1979 findings of the House Select Committee on Assassinations. Conspiracy theories about the assassination and supposed cover-up continue to circulate.

How to Choose an Attorney - By Dr. Lorandos
http://www.falsely-accused.net Dr. Lorandos explains how to chose an attorney AT http://www.falsely-accused.net/ we explain that choosing the right attorney is the most important decision. There are many types of legal troubles and its critical to find an attorney who has the right expertise for your case. If you make a rushed or uninformed choice, you know, the yellow pages choice, the financial and emotional cost can be high. Here are some simple ideas about making an informed choice in these difficult areas. 1. Exactly what kind of attorney do you need? Has your spouse or the social services department made a phony accusation against you? You need a team of litigators expert in mental health issues and allegations of sexual abuse. Have you been charged with a crime? You need an attorney who specializes in criminal law and defense. Someone has made a false allegation against you or someone you love? You need an experienced team of litigators expert in handling these kinds of criminal cases. AT http://www.falsely-accused.net/ we explain that our team specializes in all these kinds of cases and more. If you are interested, see our website at http://www.falsely-accused.net/ 2. What is this thing going to cost? Well, Abraham Lincoln, who was once an attorney, remarked that time and advice are a lawyers stock in trade. So remember, you get what you pay for. Depending upon the area in which you live and the subject matter of your legal claims, the hourly rates can range from as low as $175 to as high as $500 an hour for legal services. There are a number of standard fee arrangements that an attorney might suggest. Retainers Flat Rates Hourly rates Contingency fees Retainers are usually an advanced payment on an hourly rate for a specified case. The retainer is usually placed in a special account, often regulated by the state bar and the cost of services is deducted from that account as they accrue. During the case, the attorney should send you periodic billing statements, showing how much has been deducted from the retainer. Most retainers are nonrefundable because in order to get up to speed on your case the attorney and much of the attorneys staff has to stop doing other work and concentrate on your legal matter. Flat fees may be suggested when your legal matter is easy to calculate the amount of time that it will take. This can be a criminal case and some other types of cases as well. The flat fee may only cover the attorneys fees. With other expenses such as filing fees, investigation fees, expert witness fees, and other costs being additional. Hourly rates are common arrangements between the attorney and the client. The attorney builds the client an agreed upon hourly rate for the amount of time the attorney spends in resolving the matter. This billing should include a reduced rate when the attorneys staff like clerks or paralegals or legal assistants work on the case. Their legal expertise is not nearly as high. An attorneys hourly rate is usually an indication of the attorneys experience, operating expenses, confidence, and the area in which he lives. Cheaper is not better when it comes to your legal rights. An attorney experienced with cases like yours will be better able to assess the case and give you an estimate of how long it will take to complete. For more information about how attorney bills work, check out our website at http://www.falsely-accused.net/ 3. How do you start your search for the right attorney? Well, theres a new way now. Try the Internet. Use a search engine and see if there is anything written by the attorneys of help in the area that you need. Search for articles by or about the attorney in that area of law. Forget the yellow pages. Why? Because the yellow pages are very expensive. Therefore attorneys need high volume to afford them. At http://www.falsely-accused.net/ we explain that yellow pages are dominated by local attorneys who may not really be experts in the particular area of law you need. Try asking family and friends to search with you on the internet for an expert. If your family or friends recommend an attorney, ask what kind of matters the attorney has handled for them, and whether they were satisfied, and what the representation cost. You should also consider contacting the state lawyers organization, however sometimes those organizations make referrals based upon those who are next on a list, rather than the quality of the representation. So be careful; those organizations are usually referred to as the state bar and they may have a referral service. 4. Youve got some information, now what? Well, now that youve got a list of possible attorneys, email them or call them. It would be helpful if you write yourself a short script with a brief explanation of your case and a list of questions to ask each office on your first call, depending upon the nature of your case. http://www.falsely-accused.net/

What the President Can Learn About Freedom (5 of 7)
April 16, 2009 - Rufus Fears, political commentator and professor of classics at the University of Oklahoma, gave the keynote address in the Hauenstein Center's conference, "Barack Obama and the Lessons of Antiquity." Dr. Fears is David Ross Boyd Professor of Classics at the University of Oklahoma, where he holds the G.T. and Libby Blankenship Chair in the History of Liberty. Professor Fears earned his Ph.D. from Harvard University and is a fellow of many distinguished organizations, such as the American Academy in Rome, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, and the Guggenheim Foundation. His research has been supported by institutions such as the American Philosophical Society and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Before taking his post at the University of Oklahoma, Dr. Fears held teaching positions at Indiana University, where he rose from assistant professor to full professor, and Boston University, where he served as Chair of the Department of Classical Studies. Professor Fears is the author of four books, including The Cult of Virtues and Roman Imperial Ideology, and has published a three-volume edition of Selected Writings of Lord Acton, the great British historian of liberty. He has also published more than 100 articles and reviews, and other writings on ancient history, the history of liberty, and the lessons of history for our own day. President Barack Obama ran for office promising to catalyze change in America. Yet, any American president is going to operate in the context of much continuity: of thought, of habit and tradition, of political process. The founding fathers of President Obama's government inherited much from antiquity and from the old world. His challenge will be to enact change in the midst of overwhelming continuity. On April 16 and 17, classical scholars from around the country gathered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to put Barack Obama's presidency in the context of the American founding generation, and Greek and Roman antiquity.

The Wisdom of Mark Twain - Famous Quotes
Mark Twain quotes and sayings. Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. Well know for his famous quotes. Among his novels are The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "The Great American Novel". Twain was raised in Hannibal, Missouri, which later provided the setting for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. He served an apprenticeship with a printer and then worked as a typesetter, contributing articles to the newspaper of his older brother Orion Clemens. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. In 1865, his humorous story "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" was published, based on a story that he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention and was even translated into classic Greek. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty. Twain earned a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, but he invested in ventures that lost most of it—notably the Paige Compositor, a mechanical typesetter that failed because of its complexity and imprecision. He filed for bankruptcy in the wake of these financial setbacks, but he eventually overcame his financial troubles with the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers. He chose to pay all his pre-bankruptcy creditors in full, even though he had no legal responsibility to do so. Twain was born shortly after an appearance of Halley's Comet, and he predicted that he would "go out with it" as well; he died the day after the comet returned. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called him "the father of American literature". Here are some of his famous and not so famous quotes and wisdom. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Funny, Silly and Stupid Signs" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7uTiyF97Ys -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

"Wizard of "Pozz" CDC's Madoff, Abramoff of Disease Control!
To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men" ~President Abraham Lincoln After years of neglecting the Hierarchy of Disease Control e.g. Deliberate Indifference, CDCs entrenched / incompetent Program Manager, Martin "Wizard of Pozz" Goldberg is speechless after the Philadelphia Public Records printed consecutive articles in May 2007, referencing CDCs Selective Enforcement of Disease Control and the Intentional Abandonment of Care, which infringed on Tax Paying Philadelphians Right to Exist and Right to Know, in clear violation of Title VI, Civil Rights Act of 1964. At the time of this protest in front of Health Department and at the Philadelphia Health Commissioners (Carman Paris) Office Building, *Two Cases of Congenital Syphilis had been reported by the Philadelphia Record (confirmed by CDC Officials in Philadelphia). The CDC purposely ignored these warnings, never heeded the State Advisories (#86 issued months before the birth of the first child) and despite notification to the contrary, at years end 10 Syphilitic Babies had been born to the City of Philadelphia, reflecting a 1000% Increase from the previous year. To add insult to disability, CDC Managers in Philadelphia and Carman Paris created their own Health Notice, only after the birth of the Fifth INFANT born with Syphilis. CDC then blamed the life Style of each Minority Mother and further stated alleged language barriers contributed to their FAILURES! Congenital Syphilis is 100% PREVENTABLE! It takes Nine Months for a Woman to give birth to a child and less than Nine Seconds for the CDC Management in Philadelphia to call that expecting Mother and inform her of the disease exposure and proper treatment to protect herself, the unborn child and the Father of that child (prevent re-exposure) In 2007, Paris resigned from her post as Health Commissioner and is still under Grand Jury Indictment. Goldberg (Wizard of Pozz) was forced into retirement as a result of Congressional correspondences addressed to the CDC Director (Julie Gerberding) in 06. However the Wizard of Pozz rehired himself in 07 as a Program Consultant at $50 per hour, thus ensuring his Double Dipping High School Urine Screening Scheme, which continues to flourish and remains unchallenged! CDCs version of the Lipstick on a Pig is the Philadelphia High School Chlamydia Project (PHSCP). In 2003 the charade known as the PHSCP was unveiled. CDCs immoral and deceitful Public Health Policies have condemned many Philadelphians to a slow and agonizing Death Sentence. Like the recent Katrina Victims and Survivors whod paid their taxes, all Americans Citizens diagnosed and or exposed to fatal / preventable Communicable Diseases, have the right to be informed and notified about their infections or possible disease exposure in a timely fashion. How many more must die as a result of those in position of power remaining silent? Similarly to the concentration camps of Auschwitz, there has been smoke billowing from Philadelphias STD Control Program for years, but its Federal Chain of Command continues to allow this Disease Control Inferno to determine the fate of innocent men, women, teens, children & vulnerable infants year after year!

Booze vs Tobacco vs Marijuana use & Pregnancy (see link for study)
Smoking in Pregnancy Linked to Psychotic Symptoms in Kids The new research, published in the October issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry, doesn't prove that smoking during pregnancy causes the psychotic behavior, but it does suggest a link. In the study of 6,356 children in the United Kingdom, more than 11 percent of the 12-year-olds appeared to have definite or suspected symptoms of psychosis.... ...."The researchers couldn't find any link between maternal marijuana use and psychotic symptoms in children among the few women who reported using the drug during pregnancy." Link to news story in full at source US News: http://health.usnews.com/articles/health/healthday/2009/10/01/smoking-in-pregnancy-linked-to-psychotic-symptoms.htm ___________________________________________________________________________ Maybe this is why Native tribal women used Marijuana to ease early pregnancy symptoms!! "Prohibition...goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded." -- Abraham Lincoln December 1840

Leaked assassination footage from Russia  Natasha Norvikov  (watch?v=cE2Rr-5FrVY)‏
Other uploads of this video have been taken down by the Russian government. Please help reveal the truth. More information is coming soon. Stanislav Markelov, the human rights lawyer who represented the family of Elza Kungaeva, the 18-year-old Chechen woman murdered by Russian Colonel Yuri Budanov in the Chechen village of Tangi-Chu in March 2000, was also murdered in Moscow on January 19. Markelov, who was the founder and president of the Moscow-based Rule of Law Institute, was shot a short distance from the Kremlin by a masked gunman, who also shot Anastasia Baburova, a night student at Moscow State Universitys journalism school and a writer for the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, who was walking with Markelov at the time of the shooting. The lawyer had just held a press conference at Moscows Independent Press Center, during which he condemned the December 24 court decision granting Budanov parole (North Caucasus Weekly, January 9). Budanov was released from prison on January 15, having served eight years and six months of his ten-year sentence for Kungaevas murder. Markelov died at the scene of the crime while Baburova, who had attended his press conference, died of her wounds in a hospital several hours later. Baburova, who appears not to have been an intended target, was shot by the gunman as she pursued him after he gunned down Markelov. As Newsru.com reported on January 20, many human rights activists believe Markelovs murder was directly connected to the Kungaeva case. It should be noted that Markelov had filed an appeal with Russias Supreme Court challenging Budanovs early release and said he might also file an appeal challenging the decision to grant Budanov parole with the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. Interfax on January 19 quoted Kungaevas father, Visa Kungaev, as saying he had no doubt that Markelov was killed for firmly and consistently defending the interests of the Kungaev family and for filing an appeal with the Russian Supreme Court to overturn Budanovs early release. I am sure this is the work of Budanovs people, Kungaev told Interfax. It is also a warning to other lawyers as well as rights defenders and journalists to keep away from Budanovs case. In 2003, Visa Kungaev, his wife and four surviving children fled Russia to Norway, and police there have put the family under protective custody in the wake of Markelovs murder. RIA Novosti quoted Kungaev as saying that his family had been forced to move from Russia to Norway after receiving threats over the Budanov case. Budanov, for his part, called Markelovs murder a dirty provocation in a telephone interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda published on January 20, during which Budanov also conveyed condolences to the families of Markelov and Baburova. While Budanovs condolences were cynical at best, Kommersant on January 20 quoted one of Markelovs colleagues at the Rule Of Law Institute, Vasily Syzganov, as saying he doubted that Budanov killed the lawyer. I cannot imagine that a man would spend eight years in places of detention and think only about how to kill the opposing partys lawyer, Syzganov told the newspaper. Most likely, somebody simply took advantage of Yuri Budanovs release, he added. In addition, various observers have noted that Markelov undoubtedly had multiple enemies as a result of his work as a human rights lawyer. As the Moscow Times noted on January 20, Markelovs other clients included Khimkinskaya Pravda editor Mikhail Beketov, an anti-corruption campaigner who was gravely beaten in Khimki, just north of Moscow, in unclear circumstances last year; Chechen Yana Neserkhoyeva, a Nord-Ost hostage accused of helping terrorists in 2002; and Zelimkhan Murdalov, a kidnapped Grozny resident assisted by Novaya Gazeta reporter Anna Politkovskaya, who herself was shot dead in central Moscow in 2006. In addition, Newsru.com reported on January 20 that Markelov often represented the interests of anarchist and pacifist movements, defended victims of police actions criticized the authorities, spoke out against Nazi movements, [and] took part in mass protests. Amnesty International noted in a January 19 press release that it had campaigned on Markelovs behalf back in 2004 after he was attacked, beaten and had documents stolen relating to his work on behalf of Zelimkhan Murdalov. According to Amnesty International, Murdalov was abducted and tortured by Sergei Lapin, an OMON special police detachment officer also known as Kadet who allegedly sent threatening letters to Politkovskaya after she published articles linking him and his OMON colleagues to Murdalovs torture. According to the Associated Press, the Vienna public prosecutors office said it had no proof that Israilov was killed by a hit man or that the killing was political. The office said Austrian police had detained a 40-year-old man of Chechen origin in whose car the killers escaped, but the man denied any involvement

Andrew Jackson: Good, Evil, and the Presidency
A biography of America's seventh president, ANDREW JACKSON: GOOD, EVIL AND THE PRESIDENCY explores whether Americans should celebrate Jackson or apologize for him. Viewers discover that Jackson fought in the Revolutionary War when he was 13 years old and that he used the skills learned in battle to kill a man over a gambling debt; that Jackson led the American army to the most surprising victory in its history in the Battle of New Orleans, but that he also launched an unauthorized invasion of Florida; that Jackson was the first great champion of the common white man and owned more than a hundred black Americans; that Jackson dramatically expanded the United States and did so by brutally wresting vast regions of the south from Native Americans; that Jackson, in one of the boldest political strokes in history, founded the Democratic Party, yet was viewed by his enemies as an American Napoleon. The film concludes with the words of Jackson's first biographer, James Parton: "Andrew Jackson was a patriot, and a traitor. He was the greatest of generals, and wholly ignorant of the art of war. He was the most candid of men, and capable of the profoundest dissimulation. He was a democratic autocrat, an urbane savage, an atrocious saint." Martin Sheen narrates.

Students' Historic Find
Two University of Delaware graduate students recently stumbled upon a letter written by President Thomas Jefferson while sifting through thousands of documents and other items donated to the university's library. Jefferson sent the letter, dated 1808, as a condolence correspondence upon the death of another patriot, John Dickinson. The letter, addressed to Dr. Joseph Bringhurst, of Wilmington, Delaware was sent in response to an earlier letter by Bringhurst informing then-president Jefferson of the death of Dickinson, a delegate to the Continental Congress, a signer of the Articles of Confederation, a president of Delaware and an architect of the Constitution. Thomas Jefferson is one of the reasons that I got into history, said History graduate student Amanda Daddona, one of the students who discovered the letter. It was quite an exciting day and I had no idea I'd be finding that when I came into work that morning. Daddona and fellow student, Matt Davis, are cataloging the archives of the Rockwood Museum, a collection that was recently donated to the university by New Castle County. The Rockwood collection is huge and diverse, containing thousands of documents, maps, letters, photographs, albums, diaries, deeds, business records, ephemera and other items from the 17th century until the late 1970s. It may be assumed that many if not most of the older items in the collection have not been examined for several decades or longer.

EVIDENCE OF REVISION Part 4. The RFK Assassination as Never Seen Before. 6 of 11
EVIDENCE OF REVISION Part 4 CLASSIFIED, CENSORED, & SUPPRESSED 6 Part documentary. Support production crew, purchase DVD's here: http://www.wingtv.net/evidenceofrevision.html HISTORY MAY BE REVISED EVEN AS IT IS BEING WRITTEN "Evidence of Revision" is a 5-DVD, 8 hour long documentary series whose purpose is to present the publicly unavailable and even suppressed historical audio, video, and film recordings largely unseen by the American public relating to the assassination of the Kennedy brothers, the little known classified "Black Ops" actually used to intentionally create the massive war in Viet Nam, the CIA "mind control" programs and their involvement in the RFK assassination and the Jonestown massacre and other important truths of our post-modern time. The U.S. Government's Orwellian "Office of Public Diplomacy" has been in existence in various forms and under various names since World War ONE. The union of American governance and American corporate interests began in Abraham Lincoln's day and the massaging of "public truth" began even before the Roman Empire. The more you know about "real history" versus "official history", the better equipped you are to see behind the lies of our times, even as they are told to you. Some of us knew what was really happening even before the second plane hit the tower.

President Barack Obama's Inaugural Address ★ Official Video LIVE (CNN)
WASHINGTON -- Barack Obama was sworn in today as the nation's first African American president, bringing an air of optimism and promises of change to bear on the parallel challenges of a damaged economy and two unfinished wars. Obama recited the 35-word oath of office, administered for the first time by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. His right hand held high, Obama became the 44th man to make the constitutionally mandated promise to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution." AP Photo/Elise AmendolaPresident Barack Obama, left, shakes hands with Chief Justice John Roberts after taking the oath of office at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2009. At right rear is first lady Michelle Obama. Prepared text of President Barack Obama's inaugural address LIVE VIDEO COMPLETE COVERAGE PREVIOUS ARTICLES INAUGURATION DAY SCHEDULE Michelle Obama, held the Bible -- the same one used by Abraham Lincoln during his 1861 inauguration -- as her husband took the oath shortly before noon. Moments earlier, Justice John Paul Stevens had sworn in Vice President Joseph Biden of Delaware. A crowd judged to have exceeded one million people braved harsh temperatures as they lined up before dawn to witness the historic swearing in of Obama. They waved flags and pictures of Obama, chanting and singing as the big moment approached and Obama stood before them prepared to take the reins of power. The crowd shouted "O-bam-a" and issued low boos and catcalls when President Bush was shown onscreen and announced. Tens of thousands of police and military personnel were on hand to keep order, though they were at times unable to contain the masses. There were places where frustration tamped down the patience, but no major incidents occurred. Marilyn Coleman, 34 of Somerset, said the inconvenience and cold experienced by inaugural pilgrims yesterday hardly compares to the hardships endured by African Americans in the early years of the civil rights movement. "My parents grew up in Mississippi in the sixties," an emotional Coleman said. "People were getting hosed, and dogs. I'll take the cold from the weather (over) being hosed or beaten trying to be treated like a human," she said. Obama, 47, ascended to White House after a startlingly swift political rise that brought him from the Illinois state house to the White House in a mere four years.

These commemorative President Barack Obama memorabilia articles are the smartest investments we as "One Nation,One People" can honestly make. I made a video of the top and official President Barack Obama memorabilia sites. People are buying from them and saling the articles to others for three and four times the price. Some are holding on to them. The longer they keep them, the memorabilia, the more valuable they become in the future. This is definately the time to start your own personal history making colllection. There are "NO EXCUSES" for losing out on such a clear opportunity! "You snooze you lose."
