Long-lost Tea Party tract discovered Score: More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More...

 — dating back to 1963!


Yesterday I attended the Oakland Museum’s White Elephant Sale, a massive annual event where thousands of people crowd into an enormous warehouse to browse through mountains of junk, castoffs and collectibles.

I was rooting through a box of old books when I noticed a yellowed scrap of paper loose at the bottom of the box. Curious, I picked it up and was at first mystified and then amazed at what was printed on it.

I brought the scrap along with my other purchases to the check-out table, but they just let me have it for free. Which was a mistake on their part, because what I had discovered was a foundational document of the Tea Party movement — dating all the way back to 1963!

I have since dubbed this sacred artifact the Codex Teapartiensis.

I brought it home and scanned it, to share my discovery with other history scholars.

First, a scan of the back side, which is what dates the document to the early 1960s — probably ’63:

M. Stanton Evans talked about his book, Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies, published by Crown Forum. The author argued that Senator Joseph McCarthy does not deserve the bad reputation he has been assigned by historians, and that Senator McCarthy was correct in his assessment of the threat posed by Communists in the United States during the so-called "Red Scare" and that his detractors knowingly cover up the extent of this threat. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions.

Flashback: Reagan labeled Gaddafi as ‘Mad Dog of the Middle East’ Score: More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF

    “I find he‘s not only a barbarian but he’s flaky,” Reagan said of Gadhafi.

    Some U.S. allies — even a few officials within his own administration — thought Reagan was too fixated on Gadhafi, that he was building Gadhafi up.

    But the president bristled at the Libyan leader’s support for terrorist groups and revolutionaries. And he coined a nickname for him: the “mad dog of the Middle East.” Gadhafi’s goal, Reagan said, was “a Muslim fundamentalist revolution.”

In lieu of flowers

The late James Harrison of The Woodlands, Texas really doesn’t like Barack Obama. So much so in fact that he’s asking mourners to donate to anyone running against the President:

    In lieu of flowers, at Jim’s request, please make a donation to ANYONE running against Barack Hussein Obama, or the American Cancer Society

Who said political activism had to end when you died.




Remember Frank Buckles, the Last Doughboy of World War I Score: More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More...

Jeffrey S. Reznick

Dr. Reznick is Deputy Chief of the History of Medicine Division in the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Honorary Research Fellow in the Center for First World War Studies of the University of Birmingham, and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. He is the author, most recently, of John Galsworthy and Disabled Soldiers of the Great War, with an Illustrated Selection of His Writings (Manchester University Press, 2009).

Last weekend, America lost its sole surviving “doughboy” of World War I, Frank Buckles. His death marks a poignant moment in our nation’s history.  With his passing, our direct and living connection to the Great War is now gone, leaving only artifacts, images, memorials, and words to link us to the “War to End All Wars” and to the nearly 4.5 million men who wore the American uniform in that conflict.

The First World War was the first chapter in the history of the modern era.  Its generation—the first generation of men at war to witness fully mechanized battle—came of age in the face of machine guns, tanks, and gas that killed hundreds of thousands and disabled, disfigured, and traumatized hundreds of thousands more.  Members of the so-called “generation of 1914” witnessed unprecedented horrors of war, and some lived to see another world war and wars beyond that.

The World War I generation created ideas and language that are still in use.  When Americans describe the ongoing political battles over abortion rights as “trench warfare,” the terrain after a natural disaster as “no man’s land,” and the victims of hurricanes as “shell-shocked,” we are using descriptions that have their origin in the generation that—with the passing of Frank Buckles—has now left leave us entirely. Indeed, we are now almost as far removed from the Marne as the Marne was from Waterloo.
