ATTACKS ON THOMAS JEFFERSON BY POLITICAL OPPONENTS

"a mean-spirited, low-lived fellow, the son of a half-breed Indian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father."

THOMAS PAINE ON JOHN ADAMS:  “It has been the political career of this man to begin with hypocrisy, proceed with arrogance, and finish with contempt.”

THE NEW ENGLAND COURANT on the election of Thomas Jefferson (probably around (1800)

“…Murder, robbery, rape, adultery and incest will be openly taught and practiced, the air will be rent with the cries of distress, the soil soaked with blood, and the nation black with crimes.  Where is the heart that can contemplate such a scene without shivering with horror?”

FEDERALIST PREACHERS ON JEFFERSON

“ARE YOU PREPARED TO SEE YOUR DWELLING IN FLAMES, HOARY HEADS BATHED IN BLOOD, FEMALE CHASTITY VIOLATED, OR CHILDREN WRITHING ON THE PIKE AND THE HALBERD?”

JOHN QUINCY ADAMS ATTACKING JOHN RANDOLPH (POLITICIAN)

John Quincy Adams who, along with his father, the second President, has been bitterly attacked by Randolph, quoted Ovid against the Latter:

“His face is ashen, gaunt his whole body, His breath is green with gall; His tongue drips poison.”

Ovid (43 BC-AD 17/18), applied by John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) to John Randolph (a politician)

CHICAGO TIMES ON LINCOLN’S 2ND INAUGURAL ADDRESS:

"…We did not conceive it possible that even Mr. Lincoln would produce a paper so slipshod, so loose-joined, so puerile, not alone in literary construction, but in its ideas, its sentiments, its grasp.  He has outdone himself.  He has literally come out of the end of his own horn.  By the side of it, mediocrity is superb."

This statement is from the Chicago Times on March 6, 1865 in response to Lincoln's second inaugural address [Source: Abraham Lincoln, a press portrait: By Herbert Mitgang]

WARREN HARDING UNDER ATTACK BY THE PRESS

H.L. Mencken on Warren Harding

GAMALIESE

MARCH 7, 1921

Page 42

“He writes the worst English that I have ever encountered. It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abysm of pish and crawls insanely up the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble. It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash.

H. L Mencken (1880-1956), American journalist and critic, on Warren G. Harding (1865-1923), American president

  • Zangara, an Italian anarchist, had lived in New Jersey since 1924, and had only been in Miami for a couple of months. According to the FBI file, he said he wanted to kill kings and presidents of wealthy governments since he was 17. His intention was to go to Washington to kill Pres Hoover but changed his mind when he learned that Pres-elect Roosevelt was coming to Miami.
  • "I decide to kill him and make him suffer. I want to make it 50-50. Since my stomach hurt I want to make even with capitalists by kill the President. My stomach hurt long time."
  • Zangara told the FBI he had once planned to kill the King of Italy

Harry Truman

Assasins: Oscar Collazo and Griselio Torresola

Assassination Attempt: November 1, 1950

http://www.trumanlibrary.org/trivia/assassin.htm

  • Two Puerto Rican nationalists, Oscar Collazo and Griselio Torresola, attempted to assassinate President Truman on November 1, 1950. They arrived in Washington D.C. the day before from the Bronx in New York City, where they were active in the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party. They thought the assassination would call attention to Puerto Rico and advance the cause of Puerto Rican independence.

James Garfield

Assasin: Charles Guiteau

Assassination Attempt: July 2, 1881, died in Sept. 1881

  • President James Garfield (1881) had only been in office for four months when he was shot, on in Washington, D.C
  • Despite defense claims that he was insane, Guiteau was convicted of Garfield's murder and he was executed in 1882.

http://www.library.georgetown.edu/dept/speccoll/cl133.htm <http://www.library.georgetown.edu/dept/speccoll/cl133.htm>

  • In 1860, Charles Guiteau joined the Oneida Community in New York. Still unhappy, he then left the community on April 3, 1865, when he conceived of the notion that he had been chosen by God to spread Noyes' self-named "millennial communism" by founding a daily newspaper.
  • After Garfield's election, in 1881, Guiteau moved to Washington, D.C., in the hope of an appointment. He bombarded Secretary of State James G. Blaine with letters. Finally, after receiving either rebuff or no response at all, Guiteau again changed sides to the Stalwarts' cause.
  • In mid-May 1881, he conceived the idea to "remove" the president. On June 16, 1881, he delivered the first of several "explanations" for his action, an "Address to the American People.” He also wrote a letter to the White House and a similar one to be sent to General William T. Sherman, stating, "I have just shot the President...His death was a political necessity. I am a lawyer, theologian and politician. I am a Stalwart of the Stalwarts..."

Abe Lincoln

Assassin: John Wilkes Booth

Assassination: shot on April 14, 1865, died next day

“To Whom It May Concern” November 1864

(Right or Wrong, God Judge Me: The Writings of John Wilkes Booth)

  • “The very nomination of Abraham Lincoln, four years ago, spoke plainly – war, war upon Southern rights and institutions. His election proved it. ‘Await an overt act.’ Yes till you are bound and plundered. What folly, the South were wise. Who thinks of argument or patience when the finger of his enemy presses on the trigger…People of the north, to hate tyranny to love liberty and justice, to strike at wrong and oppression, was the teaching of our fathers. The study of our early history will not let me forget it, And may it never.”

JFK

Assassin: Lee Harvey Oswald

Assassination: Nov. 22, 1963

  • "He didn't even have the satisfaction of being killed for civil rights . . . . It's — it had to be some silly little Communist." — Jackie Kennedy, on hearing that a leftist had been arrested for her husband's murder.

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/oswald/cron/ <http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/oswald/cron/>

  • Lee writes in his diary: "I was looking for a key to my environment, and then I discovered socialist literature. I had to dig for my books in the back dusty shelves of libraries."
  • 1958: Oswald starts learning Russian and begins openly espousing the virtues of Marxism to fellow Marines. He begins receiving left-wing newspapers and he becomes enamored with Fidel Castro's 1959 revolution. He now views Cuba as the Marxist ideal and is highly critical of the U.S. administration's policies toward Castro.
  • 1963: Oswald poses for pictures in his backyard, dressed all in black, with the new pistol in his waist and carrying his new rifle. Oswald gives his friend one of the photos. On the back someone has written "Hunter of Fascists" in Russian, and Oswald has signed it. His signature is later verified beyond a doubt by the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA).
  • 1963: He writes to the leading pro-Castro group in the U.S., the Fair Play for Cuba Committee (FPCC), offering to start a New Orleans chapter. The committee discourages him, but he ignores them and begins printing his own pro-Castro leaflets and phony membership cards.

  • For 30 years, Lady Liberty's 29-foot torch was accessible via service ladder. But early on the morning of July 30, 1916, as World War I raged in Europe, German agents attacked a waterfront munitions depot in nearby Jersey City, N.J., triggering a massive explosion that caused the equivalent of more than $2 million in damage to the statue. The torch never re-opened.

  • the resulting explosion was the equivalent of an earthquake measuring between 5.0 and 5.5 on the Richter Scale. Windows within a 25-mile radius were broken, the outside wall of Jersey City’s City Hall was cracked and pieces of metal damaged the skirt of the Statue of Liberty

http://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2004/july/blacktom_073004 <http://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2004/july/blacktom_073004>

  • Two million tons of war materials packed into train cars had blown up in the Black Tom railroad yard on what is now a part of Liberty State Park.
  • Thousands of windows shattered in lower Manhattan and Jersey City. Shrapnel pock-marked the Statue of Liberty. Three men and a baby were killed by the explosive energy that erupted from this act of sabotage.

http://philadelphia.fbi.gov/1919bombings.htm <http://philadelphia.fbi.gov/1919bombings.htm>

  • In seven U.S. cities in June 1919, all within approximately 90 minutes of one another, bombs of extraordinary capacity rocked some of the biggest urban areas in America, including New York; Boston; Pittsburgh; Cleveland; Patterson, New Jersey; Washington, D.C.; and Philadelphia. The bombings were a concerted effort among U.S. based anarchists who were most likely disciples of Luigi Galleani, a vehemently radical anarchist who advocated violence as a means to effect change, to rid the world of laws and capitalism.

During Hughes’ trial, rioting broke out, there was looting of Texas town’s black business district, courthouse was burned down during the man’s trial. Hughes had perished in the fire, but the crazed crowd, now numbering over 5000, dragged his body behind a car, hanged it from a tree, and set it on fire.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

Photo by H. Armstrong Roberts/Retrofile/Getty Images

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn offer his thoughts on how you can solve the Great Reset's housing crisis:

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

Photo by OLI SCARFF/AFP via Getty Images

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
