Show 674 This is a audio presentation of the video documentary,  Innocents Betrayed. To watch the video visit:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-H1UY2-YDY

 

Warning: contains very graphic footage.

 

This excellent documentary effectively shatters gun control myths and fallacies. Owning a firearm is not a privilege -- it's a basic right. In fact, it's the basic right to protect yourself and your loved ones.

 

Throughout History, there has been a disturbing pattern: sooner or later (often sooner than later), disarmed populations become the hapless victims of tyrannical governments and criminals. The right to own a weapon is one that is usually conquered in the aftermath of centuries of suffering and genocide.

 

Today, we tend to forget that. Yet, the last 100 odd years were undoubtedly the most brutal of all, in what concerns organized violence against deliberately disarmed populations.

 

This is what "Innocents Betrayed" documents. How innocents are constantly betrayed -- and brutalized -- by gun control.

Show 665 Book: DUPES: How America”s Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century. Michael Medved talks to author Paul Kengor.  12/6/2010

Book Description-  In this startling, intensively researched book, bestselling historian Paul Kengor shines light on a deeply troubling aspect of American history: the prominent role of the “dupe.” From the Bolshevik Revolution through the Cold War and right up to the present, many progressives have unwittingly aided some of America’s most dangerous opponents.

Based on never-before-published FBI files, Soviet archives, and other primary sources, Dupes exposes the legions of liberals who have furthered the objectives of America’s adversaries. Kengor shows not only how such dupes contributed to history’s most destructive ideology—Communism, which claimed at least 100 million lives—but also why they are so relevant to today’s politics.

Dupes reveals:

  • Shocking reports on how Senator Ted Kennedy secretly approached the Soviet leadership to undermine not one but two American presidents
  • Stunning new evidence that Frank Marshall Davis—mentor to a young Barack Obama—had extensive Communist ties and demonized Democrats
  • Jimmy Carter’s woeful record dealing with America’s two chief foes of the past century, Communism and Islamism
  • Today’s dupes, including the congressmen whose overseas anti-American propaganda trip was allegedly financed by foreign intelligence
  • How ’60s Marxist radicals—Tom Hayden, Mark Rudd, Jane Fonda, Jeff Jones, Bill Ayers, and more—have suddenly reemerged as “progressives for Obama”
  • How Franklin Roosevelt was duped by “Uncle Joe” Stalin—and by a top adviser who may have been a Soviet agent—despite clear warnings from fellow Democrats
  • How John Kerry’s accusations that American soldiers committed war crimes in Vietnam may have been the product of Soviet disinformation
  • The many Hollywood stars who were duped, including Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn, Gene Kelly—and even Ronald Reagan
  • Soviet records that demonstrate beyond doubt the Communists’ expansionist aims and their targeting of American liberals, especially academics and the Religious Left
  • How liberals still defend the same Communists who trashed Democratic icons like Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Harry Truman, and JFK—and still attack the anti-Communists who tried to spare them from manipulation
  • Details on many other dupes (and dupers), including Arthur Miller, Dr. Benjamin Spock, John Dewey, H. G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Lillian Hellman, Howard Zinn, Walter Cronkite, and Helen Thomas

Packed with stunning revelations, Dupes shows in frightening detail how U.S. adversaries exploit the American home front.

P.J. O'Rourke on Don't Vote It Just Encourages the Bastards

"I like [the Tea Party]. I think that it's amazing that we have a populist movement in America that is demanding less government...It is saying 'Roll back, get outta my face, go away' and I think that's just wonderful," says P. J. O’Rourke, author of Don't Vote It Just Encourages the Bastards.

 

Thomas Sowell on Dismantling America "Unless [Obama] is stopped...in terms of losing the votes he needs in Congress to pursue his agenda, I see nothing short of one, domestically, losing the freedoms that we have — which he's taking away one by one — and two, internationally, finding ourselves in generations to come living under the threat of a nuclear armed Iran," says Thomas Sowell, author of Dismantling America.

 

Stanley Kurtz on Radical-in-Chief

"I did avoid claiming Obama was a socialist...But...I was looking into these socialist scholars conferences which it became...clear Obama attended...And when I saw the programs for [them] my jaw sort of dropped," says Stanley Kurtz, author of Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism.

 

James S. Robbins on This Time We Win.

"If you look at public opinion, the public really didn't follow the media's lead on Vietnam...[I]n fact...polls showed that the American people wanted to escalate the conflict right after Tet. They understood that the enemy was weak. They wanted to win the war and come home," says James S. Robbins, author of This Time We Win: Revisiting the Tet Offensive.

 

Paul Kengor on Dupes

"Suddenly, we have before us...declassified information that...shows how some people that we thought were liberals and might have been duped, were actually more closet communists who were doing the duping," says Paul Kengor, author of Dupes: How America's Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century.

 

Linda Bridges on Athwart History

"While...Bill and National Review...have not succeeded in preventing certain bad things from happening in the world,  nonetheless [they]...have reminded people...of what the core of Western civilziation is all about, what the core of America is all

about, what kind of standard we should be aiming for," says Linda Bridges, co-editor of  Athwart History: Half a Century of Polemics, Animadversions, and Illuminations: A William F. Buckley Jr. Omnibus.

 

Andrew J. McCarthy on The Grand Jihad

"The Center for Constitutional Rights...[defends Al-Qaeda in the courts], while its night job is basically running around Europe, trying to get some foreign tribunal to indict Bush Adminstration officials for war crimes, the war crimes being the defense of the [U.S.] and the war on terror," says Andrew J. McCarthy, author of The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America.
