The Cuban Missile Crisis 50th Anniversary

The Cuban Missile Crisis 50th Anniversary

October 22, 1962 Kennedy asks Ike for advice on Cuban Missile Crisis

The following is a transcript of a telephone conversation between President Kennedy and former President Eisenhower on October 22, 1962; the sixth day of the Cuban missile crisis. Once again, Kennedy seems to be getting the same kind of advice from Eisenhower that he received from the Joint Chiefs. Their advice was for the United States to undertake some sort of military action in response to the presence of Soviet offensive weapons (nuclear missiles) on the island of Cuba. General Eisenhower in this conversation, and the Joint Chiefs in the situation room, seemed willing to risk the Soviets retaliating against Berlin in carrying out such military operations against Cuba. Kennedy, seeking the advice of Eisenhower was tempered by the knowledge that if Ike was wrong, he could end up not only losing Berlin and along with it the confidence of our allies, but he could raise the chances dangerously of escalating the conflict into all out nuclear war. History has proven Kennedy was right and the hawks were wrong.

AUDIO: JFK 10-22-1962 asks Ike’s advice on cuban missle crisis

IKE: Well thank you for calling me in; well, personally, I think you’re really making the only move you can.

JFK: Well it’s tough to ah, as I say, we will ah; I don’t know we may get into the invasion business before many days are out but ah.

IKE: Well of course from a military standpoint that’s the clean cut thing to do now…

JFK: That’s right; that’s right

IKE: Because you’ve made up your mind; you’ve got to get rid of this thing. The only real way to get rid of it is with the other thing. But having to be concerned with world opinion…

JFK: And Berlin

IKE: And the sentiment of others, why, you got to go a little slower

JFK: Well Berlin is the, ah, I suppose ah, that may be what they may try to trade off.

IKE: Well they might, but I personally I don’t go along with that thinking, cause my idea is this: The damn Soviets will do whatever they want; whatever they think is good for them

JFK: Right

IKE: And I don’t believe they relate one situation with the other; it’s what they find out they can do here, there, and the other place. And we’re already standing as a unit with NATO that if they go into Berlin, that’s all of it.

JFK: Right

IKE: That means they have to look out that they don’t get a terrific blow themselves.

JFK: Right, right.

IKE: And I don’t… I could be all wrong. But my conviction is that you will not find a great deal of relationship with it.

JFK: Well let me ask you

IKE: They’ll try to make it that way

JFK: Yea

IKE: General, what about if the Soviet Union; Khrushchev announces tomorrow, and I think he will, that we attack Cuba it’s going to be nuclear war, ah, and ah, what’s your judgment that ah they will fire these things off if we invade Cuba?

IKE: Oh ah, I don’t think that they will

JFK: You don’t think that they will?

IKE: No

JFK: I other words, you would ah take that risk if the situation seems desirable.

IKE: Well, as a matter of fact, what can you do? You, ah, if this thing is such a serious thing ah here on our flank, that ah we’re going to be uneasy; and we know what seems happening now; alright, you’ve got to use something. Something MAY make these people shoot em’ off; I just don’t believe that’s so

JFK: yea right (chuckle).

IKE: In any event, of course I’ll say this: I would want to keep my own people very alert (chuckle)

JFK: Yea (chuckle) well, hang on tight.

IKE: Yes sir

JFK: Thanks a lot General.

Trayvon Martin shooting range targets for sale online

Trayvon Martin shooting range targets?

Trayvon Martin shooting range targets for sale online

Orlando, Florida – According to clickorlando.com, an entrepreneur is selling gun range targets featuring an outline of Trayvon Martin in a hoodie. The person, who wishes to remain anonymous, emblazoned the gun range target with the outline of a gray hoodie (though no face is depicted) with crosshairs on its chest. The target also clearly displays a bag of Skittles candy in one of the pockets and an iced tea in the hoodie’s hand. In an online ad, the seller says that Zimmerman is innocent and that he shot a thug.
George Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara called it “the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility.” O’Mara said he is worried about how Martin’s parents and the community will react to the image of their son on a target intended to be used for shooting practice.
The seller told the press that his “main motivation was to make money off the controversy.” The seller also claims that there is a high demand for the targets, and that he “sold out in 2 days.”
After being contacted by the media, the seller has taken the ads off-line and claims the targets would no longer be sold.

Civil Rights leaders want firings for “Crack ho” remarks about the late Whitney Houston on KFI Los Angeles

 

By Andre Michael Eggelletion

Civil Rights leaders are now calling for greater punishment or the end of the John and Ken show on KFI AM 640 after insensitive “crack ho” remarks about the late Whitney Houston, were delivered on their program. The Los Angeles based station acted quickly and temporarily suspended the duo.

Drive-time listeners heard the host say: “At some point you’re just sick of it all, and so is everybody else in the industry; all her friends and hangers on; everybody who knew had to deal with her. It’s like ah Jesus… here comes the crack ho again, what’s she gonna do ah look at that she’s doin handstands next to the pool. Very good crack ho… after while everybody’s exhausted. And then you find out she’s dead. It’s like really; took this long.

The story and audio clip immediately went viral after it broke on the nationally syndicated radio program, “Real Deal Talk”, hosted by Andre Michael Eggelletion.

John Kobylt issued a statement saying, "We made a mistake, and we accept the stations decision. We used language that was inappropriate, and we sincerely apologize to our listeners and to the family of Ms. Houston." John and Ken will return to the air Monday, February 27.

Unhappy with the punishment, yesterday, Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson and other civil rights leaders called the suspension of John and Ken an “insulting hand slap non-punishment.

Hutchinson continues: “Given the long history of John and Ken’s racist, ethnic and gender incendiary attacks, their short suspension for their gross insensitive slur of Houston and the pain caused by it to her legions of friends, associates and family” says Hutchinson, “is beyond ludicrous. The station’s weak non-punishment of them sends the subtle message that radio hosts can abuse and slander anyone with little fear of punishment.

According to Hutchinson, endorsers include: Earl Ofari Hutchinson, President Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable; Dwayne Wyatt, L.A Black Employees for Fairness; Lita Herron, President Youth Advocacy Coalition; Eddie Jones, President Los Angeles Civil Rights Assn.; Reverend KW Tuloss National Action Network (Al Sharpton) West Coast Representative; Pedro Baez, Founder Voice of the People; Willis Edwards, NAACP National Board Member.

Calling for the firing of John and Ken is Alex Nogales, president and CEO of NHMC. Nogales said in a statement that a temporary suspension is not enough. “How many times do John and Ken get to spew their hate, apologize and then do it again after taking off a long weekend?” Mr. Nogales added: “KFI must permanently remove John and Ken from the air. Los Angeles deserves better .

How Many Terrorist Leaders Has President Obama Killed?

  By Andre Michael Eggelletion With the killing of Muammar Qaddafi in Libya today, can the GOP continue to say that President Obama is soft on terrorism? I fear that they probably will, and never give this president any credit for anything. Nonetheless, here is a list of some of the terrorist leaders that have…
