    Totally agree with you. It wasn't until about a year before he ran for president that he changed his voting choices. Prior to that he almost always voted with the Democrats no matter how warmongering a senate bill was. My gut tells me he will again run for potus in 2020 and that's why his votes continue to be dovish. He is no Dennis Kucinich who actually is a principled non-interventionist.

    Thanks, that's the House bill which still needs to be reconciled with the Senate bill.

    2 friends of an FBI informant were 9/11 hijackers. 1 of those hijacker friends even lived in the FBI informant’s house. The name of the FBI informant was Shaikh. Understandably, congressional investigators had a lot of questions for Shaikh. Nevertheless, Robert Mueller, FBI Director at the time, refused congressional demands to interview Shaikh, even when backed by a congressional subpoena, and removed Shaikh to an undisclosed location ‘for his own safety’. Today, Bob Graham believes that Mueller was acting under orders from the White House. "Think about this for a moment: the man now in charge of investigating the President of these United States for “collusion” with Russia and possible “obstruction of justice” himself obstructed a congressional investigation into the 9/11 terrorist attacks." Two years before the airliner attacks, the Saudi Embassy paid for two Saudi nationals, living undercover in the US as students, to fly from Phoenix to Washington ‘in a dry run for the 9/11 attacks.' These “students” trained at an al-Qaeda camp at the same time as some of the hijackers. They had regular contact with a highly-placed Saudi leader of al-Qaeda who is now imprisoned at Gitmo. Both were Saudi government employees and were in regular contact with the Saudi embassy. More here: Why Did Robert Mueller Obstruct Congress’s 9/11 Probe?

    I really hope she thinks long and hard about this and gets a good lawyer to charge this thug with assault. Because that's exactly what this is. He should never ever be allowed to have another job as a cop, ambulance driver, or security guard: he's proven he cannot be trusted with that authority and it needs to be taken away from him permanently.

    Thank you everyone for all of your posts on this thread!!! Although my college was good, I took no history courses (just took courses within my major). And you really don't want to know how awful my public schooling was (1 semester of U.S. history in 12 years of public school). So I am constantly craving to learn history and expand what little knowledge i have on the subject. And this thread is rich with information that I look forward to delving into as time permits. Thank you all!!! Thanks Jim. That's as far as I got tonight on your reply as before I read the rest of your statements, I wanted to do just that: to read Lincoln's actual inauguration address and decipher exactly what my interpretation of his speech is without any other interpretations clouding my understanding. (This is the first time looking at this thread since my last post, and I don't even remember particularly at this point anymore what Paul Craig Roberts said and would need first to quickly overlook to refresh my memory. So the following is my understanding of Lincoln's inaugural address without any other person's interpretations to make conclusions from.) Words written in red are my understanding of paragraphs from Lincoln's speech that precede it. Highlighted are parts relevant to this discussion. After the ending of Lincoln's speech, I extracted all of my interpretations written in red and consolidated them at the end of this post; the only changes were sentences beginning with "Lincoln said" were changed to "I". ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Fellow-citizens of the United States:

    Thanks for your explanation and post. My knowledge of history isn’t so good, so it helps to converse with others. I’ve seen this argument regarding why the civil war was fought being bandied about by both sides, so when I saw Roberts’ article, I thought to post it to see what arguments might arise here on RPForums. Went ahead and looked this up and from what I am seeing it appears that Lincoln, in his inaugural, actually said he would enforce the fugitive slave law and he would not stop slavery from expanding further:

if modern agriculture continues to follow the path it's on now, it's finished. The food-growing situation may seem to be in good shape today, but that's just an illusion based on the current availability of petroleum fuels. All the wheat, corn, and other crops that are produced on big American farms may be alive and growing, but they're not products of real nature or real agriculture. They're manufactured rather than grown. The earth isn't producing those things.. petroleum is! -Masanobu Fukuoka
