Restore Our Republic

by
As predictable as thunder following lightening, former CIA director William Gates recently declared that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and China’s increasing assertiveness demonstrate the need for the U.S. government to remain an ever-growing, more powerful national-security state. Gates’s declaration appeared in an op-ed in the March 3, 2022, issue of the Washington Post. He also pointed to Iran and North Korea as subsidiary threats to U.S. “national security.” Gates has it all wrong. The worst mistake the American people have ever made was permitting their federal government to be converted to a national-security state. That mistake not only contributed to the destruction of the rights and liberties of the American people: It also plunged our nation into an orgy of death and destruction in foreign countries as well as monetary and fiscal debauchery here at home. Today, Americans would be best off ridding our nation of its national-security state and restoring our founding governmental system of a limited-government republic. For the ...

Let’s End the Cold War Racket

by
One of the most under-reported aspects of President John F. Kennedy’s term in office was his decision to end the Cold War and establish peaceful and friendly relations with the Soviet Union, Cuba, and the rest of the communist world. In 1963 America, that was a remarkable — and highly dangerous — thing for any president to do. After all, that’s what got the democratically elected president of Guatemala, Jacobo Arbenz, regime-changed by the CIA in 1954, six years before Kennedy became president. Having no interest in helping the United States wage the Cold War, Arbenz reached out to the Soviets in a spirit of peace and friendship and was immediately deemed a threat to U.S. national security. He was ousted from power in a violent coup orchestrated by the CIA. Ten years after the Kennedy assassination, the democratically elected president of Chile, Salvador Allende, was also ousted in a coup that was orchestrated by both the CIA and the Pentagon. ...

What We Need is a New Direction for America

by
If John Kennedy were president today, there never would have been a Russian invasion of Ukraine. That’s because of two things: (1) Kennedy’s unique ability to step into the shoes of an adversary in an attempt to resolve a disagreement; and (2) Kennedy’s willingness to stand up against the Pentagon and the CIA and their fierce anti-Russia animus and ferocious anti-communist crusade. As longtime readers of FFF know, for the past several years I have focused much of my attention on the Kennedy administration and the Kennedy assassination. This is best reflected by my new book An Encounter with Evil: The Abraham Zapruder Story,  FFF’s other books relating to the assassination, including The Kennedy Autopsy and The Kennedy Autopsy 2 (both by me) and JFK’s War with the National-Security Establishment: Why Kennedy Was Assassinated (by Douglas P. Horne), and FFF conferences relating to the JFK administration and ...

A Great Opportunity to Restore the Republic

by
With the debacle in Afghanistan, the American people have been presented with one of the greatest opportunities in our lifetime — an opportunity to dismantle the national-security establishment and restore our founding system of a limited-government republic. Opportunities like this do not often present themselves. Now is time to seize the day, before the national-security establishment is able to ...
