Der Fuhrer is flipping out!

"His lies were made in perhaps the most blatant and sinister manner ever seen in the great Chamber. He wrote down and read terrible things, then said it was from the mouth of the President of the United States. I want Schiff questioned at the highest level for Fraud & Treason.”

Senator Hatrack said "Do you remember who sent in troops into Little Rock, AR? It wasn't Sen. Fulbright (D-AR). It was Republican Pres. Eisenhower. In 1957 forced integration was a bad idea that was very necessary to reverse the Plessy v. Ferguson decision. Sometimes it takes a bad idea, forced desegregation, to correct an even worse one, forced segregation."

I'm old enough to have memories, though vague, of Little Rock. Eisenhower sent in the troops, federalized Arkansas National Guard, to enforce the 1954 Supreme Court decision on desegregation: Brown v Board of Education of Topika Kansas, and the desegregation agreement passed by the Little Rock School Board. On the day the Little Rock nine were to enter school, the Arkansas Governor sent in the National Guard "to preserve the peace" preventing the Little Rock Nine from entering the school they were registered to attend.

Thanks to Wikipedia for filling in the huge gaps and sharping my memories of that time. Little Rock Nine

So Eisenhower sent in the troops, to enforce a Supreme Court decision and to stop a rebellion of a state, in refusing to uphold the law of the land.

I grew up under IKE and still rate him as the best president in my lifetime. I was born right after WWII. Call me a war baby of sorts.

I Like Ike!! smile

I remember that political commercial, with the elephants holding the flags, marching down the avenue, and inviting people to join the bandwagon. I was 6 years old at the time.

IKE left office just after I was born. I have never ascribed causation to that coincidence.

Well this may help Trump walk away and never leave his small house on the ocean.

Scottish lawmaker: Reasonable grounds to suspect Trump or his associates ‘have been involved in serious crime’

AG Barr, Giuliani, Putin (possibly) and others won't be able to help.
