"Political Memo: After Volatile Primary Season, G.O.P. Faces New Test"

Here is the list of searched books:



After spending the night with his wife at the Roosevelts over the Christmas holiday, he peppered FDR with memos on legislation and personnel, particularly his thoughts on recognizing the railroad industry.
	

But like Ronald Reagan, FDR preferred to keep all policy memos to a page or two, no matter how important.
	

The NSC, for example, was 'bandying it about in memos.
	

367 'There never seems to be 
enough': 
 Demarest memo to Rose Zamaria, April 11, 1989, 'Memos-Rose Zamaria 2/89-8/92' folder, Speechwriting, White House Office of, Administrative Files, George Bush Library.
	

They uncovered government memos that suggested she was prose
 cuted to 'break' Julius, and condemned this as a perversion of justice.
	

The group also successfully filed suit to obtain records regarding Mrs. Clinton's secret health care task force-including internal memos detailing the creation of a government 'interest group database' to collect personal information on interest group leaders, such as their home phone numbers, addresses, 'biographies, analysis of credibility in the media, and known relationships with Congresspeople.'z'
	

                                                                There are no historical commonalities 
on 
which to build; indeed, the historical experiences that the West shares with the Islamic world are cru
 sades, colonialism, imperialism, and military intervention-not exactly the stuff from which happy-ever-aftering is made.
	

It is always about race and racism seasoned with other forms of prejudice, indiffer
 ence, and hate.
	

Harry Daugherty was certainly Harding's key backer, but Warren pos
 sessed another seasoned operative: his wife.
	

12 ° GREENSPAN'S BUBBLES 

 And then, in a Febuary 13, 1985, letter to Thomas Sharkey, Principal Supervisory Agent for the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, Greenspan made the specific pronouncement that the management of the Keating thrift enterprise Lincoln Savings and Loan was 'seasoned and expert in selecting and making direct investments.'
	

Bernard was a seasoned investment advisor and founder of the respected Value Line Investment Survey, but even he had misread the markets and the psychology of the investing public.
	

                                            Mr. Balanoff is not a member of the Governor's staff and did not purport to speak

It strains credulity to believe that a seasoned Chicago pol such as Jarrett 'did not understand' that a gobsmackingly obvious 
quid pro quo 
 was being suggested to her at the behest of Blagojevich.
	

It had been seasoned with cardamom, and the scent quickly filled the air.
	

Camp Dodge had two units of seasoned troops; influenza had struck one group in the spring, and only 6.6
	

Encouraged, Jackson and his communications director Rick Bryant showed up for discussions in the luxurious Four Seasons hotel in Chi
 cago, only to find that they would not be meeting with Blagojevich or his chief of staff...
	

                He's a caricature of an investment banker, eighties

His rooms are stocked not just with luxury shampoos and lotions but with toothbrushes and razors-the things you'd expect at a Four Seasons-only Wynri s are of an even higher quality.
	

Even African rivers that are navigable may be navigable for some limited distances between cascades or waterfalls, or by boats of limited size, or for some

 limited times during the rainy seasons.
	

We call these 'seasons' in a modern-day 80-year cycle, and they are much like our annual seasons in weather.
	

In the first two seasons, income inequality grows, with the rich getting richer and the top income groups taking the lion's share of the gains.

 The point is that the new upper classes and innovators set the trends for the next New Economy Cycle, which unfolds over four seasons.
	

In the next two seasons, the gains pass through increasingly to broader income groups as the new technologies become more accessible and govern
 ments react in the Shakeout Season to favor the everyday worker and household, including trends like rising labor unions.

 The importance of being ahead of the curve in utilizing the newest forms of communication in registering, informing, and mobilizing voters couldn't have been more striking than it was in 2008.
	

But informed opinion, as reflected in news

U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS AND TELEVISION NEWS Studying Media Content 

T
he news media are often viewed as the fourth branch of government, a perspective that bestows a sense of dignity, authority, and impor
tance comparable to the Supreme Court, the presidency, and the Con
 gress (cf.
	

This vision of the news media as the 'fourth estate' is not misplaced, since the news media influence the presentation and interpretation of campaigns as well as the performance evaluations of those who ultimately are elected.
	

Each network evening news story, and there are over 1,000 of them coded here for each of the past five presidential election cycles, is analyzed along several different dimensions that allow for studies of media content from many different perspectives.
	

This is done here through die process of content analysis, in which each news segment related to the presidential election is carefully coded into cate
gories that describe whether the segment was positive, negative, or neu-

 tral toward each candidate as well as who the source of that commentary was (candidates, citizens, outside experts, and reporters themselves are examples).
	

Each story is also coded into categories that describe which topics were addressed in each news segment (campaign strategy, tax cuts, or health care are examples).
	

These data dissect every campaign stews segment that aired oil the evening news programs of ABC, NBC, and CBS during every presidential election lion 1988 to 2004.
	

                         These data include 
all 
evening news segments froth the general elec
 tion period, froth the primaries, and fiorn the 'preseason' campaigns that occur the year before the primaries and the presidential election.
	

                                                                                                                                         Our com
parative data allow us to say that many other news outlets-including other television news outlets and several of the nation's leading news- 
6 
CHAPTER I 
U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS   7 
papers-do a better, often a far better,job of providing citizens with the infbrrnation needed to understand and evaluate the campaign, the candi
 dates, and the issues.
	

In other words, the mediated coverage of network news has become so negative and so inac
 curate that the unmediated speeches, advertisements, and Internet web pages of the highly self-interested campaigns can qualify as the more sulr stantive, more useful, and more accurate forms of campaign discourse.
	

Three-quarters of those surveyed by Louis Harris and Associates in 1996 expressed sup
port for the news media's role as a watchdog on government and 63 per
 cent on balance think that reporters help democracy more than hurt it through their reporting (1: Smith et al.
	

                                                                                                                         Reporters may have little under
standing of the uncertainties of polling, including such things as margins of error, but that does not stop them from talking about polls frequently dur
 ing the half=hour nightly news programs (Larson 2001; Owen 2002).

THE SHRINKING SOUND BITE AND JOURNALISTIC SELF-OBSESSION 
Of all the declines in the quality of network television news in recent decades, perhaps none has been as dramatic as the reduction in a presi
 dential candidate's ability to address the issues in his or her own voice on network television news (luring the presidential campaign.
	

A study by Kiku Adatto (1990) found that the average length of time a presidential candidate spoke in his own words oil network television news during the 1968 campaign was 42 seconds.
	

        Network news, with its national reach, offers the opportunity for a shared national 'schema,' or shared orientation toward a particular sub
ject (Graber 1988)-or at least network news did offer that opportunity for a shared perspective before parts of its audience moved away in the di-

News coverage of the past several presidential elections has been marked by a particularly steep decline in public attention to the Big Three evenings news programs, as viewers appear to have moved in the direc
 tion of higher-quality news.
	

It is no wonder that citizens during these years turned to television in increasing numbers and for an increasing share of the news they consumed.

CHAPTER 2 
A NEED-TO-KNOW BASIS?   45 
Amount of Network News Coverage 
GENERAL ELECTIONS 
 Even before the general election stage of tile presidential selection process begins, the networks routinely face criticism for cutting back on their live coverage of the party conventions.
	

Critics saw these reductions in cover
 age as evidence of how the network news departments pay less attention to 'hard' political news and more to 'soft' news of lifestyle trends and human interest stories (Patterson 2000).
	

From the unofficial January 1 start of the 2000 primary season through the eve of the New Hampshire primary January 31, 2000, the network evening news shows were about as likely to feature the challengers, former senator Bill Bradley (D-NJ.,
	

who subsequently won die seat convincingly in 2000-was the subject of 107 stories during die twelve-month period, more network news coverage during that preseason period than arty single candidate seeking a major
 party nomination for president.
	

The network news divisions responded by vowing to pay greater attention to the topics thatjournalists considered most relevant to the public inter
 est, regardless of' the candidates' spin on issues and events.
	

Network news coverage of the Gore and Bush campaigns' strategies (136 stories and 127 stories, re
 spectively) each outnumbered stories about their competing economic policies (44 stories) by about a three-to-one margin.
	

In fact, late-breaking allegations of Bush's twenty-four-year-old drunken driving arrest generated more network news stories in the last three days before the election (16 stories) than all foreign policy issues received throughout the entire 2000 campaign (10 stories).
	

For the five presidential election cycles subject to the CMPA content analysis, horse race news has been heavily emphasized on network television, usually at the expense of stories that focus on the pol
 icy proposals of the candidates.
	

                                                                                                                 The 'politics as sports' focus of net
work television news does little to raise the quality of candidate discourse nor does it give citizens the information they need to evaluate which can
 didate would make a better president.

Brown, who eventually emerged in 1992 as the strongest challenger to the well-financed Clinton primary operation, was featured or mentioned in only seventeen network news stories during tile month before the New Hampshire primary, as compared to sixty-eight features and mentions for Clinton; thirty-nine for Sen.
	

In these ways, candidate fraining is the news media's gift to itself, and it is a gift that keeps on giving.
	

                                                                                 Given the convergence of media opinion regarding how much time re

 parodies of Gore (Paletz 2002).
	

The latter two were seen as more newsworthy because of the 'serial exaggerator' news frame that haunted Core and worked to Bush's advantage throughout the 2000 campaign.
	

To be sure, the declining amount of coverage, the heavy mediation of news content, and the shrinking sound bites are all serious problems.
	

But our scientific content analysis shows that the 2004 general election campaign was notable for the one-sided nature of network news coverage.

 paign news.
	

While news coverage ofprevious presidential elections was usually more 
112   CHAPTER 4 
balanced than it was in 2004 there were serious problems with the nega
 tivity, fairness, and accuracy in all five campaigns we studied.
	

              Michael Robinson and Margaret Sheehan conducted the first

large-scale content analysis of print and broadcastelection news, which 
fo
 cused tin the tone of coverage during Campaign 1980.
	

Los Angeles Times political reporter Robert Shogan (2001:171) reported that Richard N. Bond, a former Republican Party national chairman, said that GOP attacks on the news media were designed to be like coaches yelling at umpires, 'in the hope, as Bond put it, that `maybe the ref will cut you a little slack on the next one.''
	

Contrary to the conventional wisdom, the 1996 primaries, like the general election that followed, were marked by positive and informative candidate messages that were undennined by network news coverage that selectively focused on the most negative elements.
	

                                                                De
spite Dole's overwhelmingly positive stump speeches during the pri
 maries (78 percent positive, to be precise), a majority of Dole's sound bites (56 percent) that ran on the evening news were negative.
	

             Larson (2001) found that 87 percent of network news stories fea

At that time, a cousin of George W Bush, the Republican nominee, working as a vote counter at Fox News, declared

 that the Republicans had taken that crucial state, the state containing the electoral votes that would decide the next president.

Ellis, and the network's decision to place him in such a prominent role, was defended by Fox News President Roger Ailes, who described Ellis as

                                                                                                                                                                                                                      In
deed, the evidence that news activates cynicism is so strong that die researchers raise the possibility that at least some citizens exposed to years of negative coverage of government and politics are perceiving poli
tics and policy though an overall negative frame that dominates one's thoughts about politics: 
 A public that has accepted the belief that officials are acting in their own self-interest rather than in die interest of the common weal can be easily pritned to see self-protuotion in every political act.
	

Citizens exposed to 
152   CHAPTER 4 
 a heavier diet of strategic, or horse race, campaign news generated higher levels of cynicism than those exposed to coverage that was less focused on the 'game schema' of polities (Cappella and jamieson 1997).
	

When they consumed news about as policy-oriented a matter as health care refirnn, citizens exposed to more strategic-oriented news showed greater cyni
 cism about die political process than they had previously possessed.

CHAPTER 4 
 This multicount indictment of network news is particularly troubling in light of the central role that the news media play in linking citizens to candidates.
	

                                                       CHAPTER 5 
'NOBODY 
DOES IT BETTER'? The Networks versus Other Campaign News Sources 
A
 fter every presidential election, the television networks promise to do better next time.
	

By basing our analysis on each individual sound bite rather than entire stories, and by examining every story during an election season rather than looking only at samples, we can determine in a far more ex

159 
160 
CHAPTER 5 
tensive and precise way just how poor arid how much worse a job televi
 sion news has done in campaign coverage in recent elections.
	

As this chapter demonstrates, we have come to a point in American journalism where the campaign speeches arid advertisements of candidates-so widely disparaged as the self-interested pleadings of the desperately am
 bitious-sometimes can be compared favorably to news media accounts.
	

While public television floes not have the commercial breaks throughout the broadcast found on the Big Three networks, the news hole (i.e.,
	

actual airtime apart from commercials or promotions) of the 
NewsHour is 
 slightly less than that of the three commercial network evening news shows combined.
	

This is not to say that the Big Three could successfully emulate PBS, whose evening news
 cast is seen by a far smaller and more elite audience.
	

To measure local stews coverage, we examined campaign news fiorn a sample of fifteen local newspapers, representing cities of varying sizes and fiotn different geo
 graphic regions.
	

                                                                                         The local newspaper composite 
included the 
Las Vegas Review_7ournal, Dallas MorningNews, Fargo Fo
rum, Salem Statesman Journal, Oakland Tribune, Manchester Union
Leader, Winston-Salem journal, 
Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, Tucson Citizen, Flint Journal, Shreveport Times, Harrisburg Patriot-News, Miami Herald, 
and 
 Los Angeles Times.
	

Thus, public broadcasting offers a model of eleetion news that is more thorough, more substantive, and more pos
 itive in tone than its commercial network counterparts.
	

I Iowever, this conclusion runs counter to a recent 'revisionist' portrayal of PBS election news that depicted the comuter
 cial and public television newscasts as fintdantentally similar in style, substance, and duality.'
	

In the remainder of this chapter we will see what the coverage tells us about the possibility of quality election news in sources other than the networks' evening news
 casts.
	

During the 1996 general election, for example, CMPA analyzed 2,360 news and editorial items from a wide range of television and print news outlets, including local as well as national news.
	

Past research involving local news coverage has found some similarities between network and local news coverage, and some differences (cf.
	

Both ABC and the 
172 
CHAPTER 5 
NBC 
Nightly News 
 had less than half the percentage of substance found in the top four candidate-controlled campaign discourse categories.
	

(Tire relatively high performance of CBS was the result of the network's decision to include free-airtime statements during their evening news
 casts in 1996.
	

                                                                                                                          If 
the news media suggest that the campaigns are more negative than they actually are and that the candidates are more critical 
of 
each other than they actually are,

the 
Washington Post 
 (28 percentage points)-and nearly reached that level at CNN, where Clinton had a 21-percentage-point advantage.
	

                                      For example, conservative tele
vision cotmncrttator Pat Buchanan, who challenged Bush from the ideo
 logical right in the 1992 Republican primaries, fared far better on the television nightly news programs than did the more moderate incumbent president that year.
	

In addition, notwithstanding research showing that about 90 percent of the White House press corps voted for Clinton in 1992, a CMPA content analysis of news coverage of Clinton's first two years in office found that negative evaluations made up 73 percent of network news coverage of his new administration, with only 23 percent positive evaluations.
	

It appears that the news media can be more substantive in orientation, particularly if you pay them to be so!
	

million grant from the Markle Foundation designed to improve the quality of campaign news coverage (Kerbel 1998:132).
	

                                                     Nader was rarely cov
ered by network news reporters during the campaign, even though his can- 
184 
 didacy proved to be ofhistorie significance, dealing a fatal wound to Gore's hopes for the White House in 2000.
	

Wiry should you as a citizen take the trouble to vote when, judging from what die networks re
port, it looks as if there are no important issues, and none of the candi
 dates deserves your attention, much less your respect? Why watch the news if it doesn't consistently focus on the issues that will help citizens compare the candidates? With rights come responsibilities, and this is true not only fur citizens but also for the Fourth Estate.
	

     One likely 
192   CHAPTER 6 

 reason they perceive the process as lacking in substance and civility is that campaign news accentuates the least attractive elements ofelectoral realities.
	

The rapid movement of viewers in recent years from network television to cable news and to a lesser extent to the Internet, is well documented.
	

The sharp decline in citizen use of network television as a source ofcanhpaign news over recentyears was illustrated in the first chapter of this work (table 1.1).
	

                                                                                                                   These roving eyeballs denhon
strate that the television networks have a sound financial reason for ad
dressing some of the problems we have raised with respect to the trivial, negative, and skewed campaign material that dominates the nighty news
 casts.
	

One source of optimism is that polls indicate that citizens can see the differ
 ences among various source of campaign news and information.
	

                                                                       
The Declining Network News Audience 
Not only is the declining quality of network television's coverage of presi
 dential elections bad for candidates and citizens but it hurt the media cony parties themselves.
	

People are moving away from the network news in the direction of more effective and informative media sources.
	

                                                                                                                        Further evidence ofsuch a pub
lic willingness for higher-quality news programming is found in the steady erosion of the influence of network news in election politics and the rela
 tive strength of those media outlets, including print, CNN, and PBS, that our content analysis demonstrates offer far more substantial coverage.
	

We believe it is in the news media's best inter
 ests.
	

    A network news operation more responsive to public desires, our evi
dence suggests, would allow candidates to say more, offer more even
handed commentary, provide a greater volume of information on-air, and 
198   CHAPTER 6 
 focus more oil the country's key issues.
	

One of the easiest ways to reduce the pressures that induce the networks to offer trivial, superficial, sound
 bite coverage is for those news programs to be longer, at least once a week but perhaps every night.
	

                                                         The powerful cynicism most voters have toward the national government most of the time-to
gether with America's Constitutional traditions to keep the news media as far away froru government control as possible-are highly effective barri
 ers to government intervention even in the volume of news programming provided, regardless of how low the quality of those programs may sink.
	

                                                                                                                                       broadcast
ing industry is also not likely to be pressured in any meaningful way by lawmakers who want to stay in the good graces of television station own
 ers from whom they will buy advertising time and from whom they will desire favorable news coverage of their next campaign (West and Loomis 1999).
	

While others may call for greater government regulation in thus area, we consider voluntary network news reform the best way-and the only po
 litically viable one-for the news business to move in the direction of higher standards for network news coverage.
	

          Another possible reform to reduce the news media's influence-return
ing authority for the presidential nomination process back to flue political 
202 
 party bosses-rnay be a cure worse than the disease.
	

205 
 barrage of negative commentaries that are the hallmarks of today's evening news programs.
	

                   In this way, competition from the expanded, less
mediated formats could indirectly nudge the quality of network news
 casts upward.
	

                                                       On virtually every measure we have considered in this analysis of presidential campaign cov
erage-Iroui volume, to horse race, to content, to tone, to issues, to sound bites-the Big Three network news programs have been weighed in the bal
 ance and fixmd wauting.'rlrey

                          To appropriate another Marxist metaphor, 
208 
however, without substantive improvement from its performance in re
 cent presidential elections, the broadcast network model that dominated election news in the latter half' of the last century may simply wittier away in the next one.
	

Other news media outlets, and the umuediated campaign information sources themselves, are providing great competition for these horse race-dominated, issue-starved, nega
 tively oriented programs.
	

Network television evening news shows, as America has known them since the 1960s, must evolve or they will likely die like the dinosaurs befure them.
	

                                                                                                                            Those 589 sto

Asked about its make-believe reporting on Borja's undaunted heroism, the 
Daily News 
 observed that 'the paper had never explicitly said Officer Borja had rushed there soon after Sept. 11, only that at some point he had rushed there.''

 So there did seem to be some vague connection between Sarah Palin and lipstick in the public consciousness when Obama made his remarks on September 9.

They complain about what's front-page news and what isn't.

Moreover, Krugman must be promoting his theory of liberal media bias around the news
 room, because there's an epidemic of liberal journalists attacking the media for covering up Republican scandals.

I was left on my own to deal with this completely baffling and shocking news; I had no adult to turn to for help, comfort, guid
 ance, or answers to my questions.
	

Once the day was chosen, the news spread throughout the king
 dom and Mordecai, realizing that it would mean the end of all the Jews, knew that his people's only hope for salvation lay with Esther.
	

Obviously, it was terrible news but the magnitude of what she told me just didn't register.
	

The news barely dented page four of the 
New York 
Times-or page 
seven 
of the 
Indi
 anapolis Star.

1920 - DAVID PIE7RUBZA 
 The marital troubles of Mr. and Mrs. Cox have been no secret.
	

              The big news, however, was Hiram Johnson, sinking and never to rise again:

 On the eighth ballot, the totals barely budged, but Harding continued gaining ground (even the four Ohio 'deserters' returned).
	

                                   Cox, at his 
Dayton News 
office, received the news via Associated Press 
257 
1920 - DAVID PIETRUSZA 
telegraph wire at 4:50 
A.M. 
	

When the Democrats nominated Cox and Roosevelt, the news came via the horse-drawn Ludlow-to-Woodstock stagecoach-a day late.
	

After Wooster College fired Chan-' cellor, he regained his nerve, went on the offensive, reiterated his racial charges, and vowed to sue the 
Dayton News 
 for $100,000 for printing his various statements to Sherwood Snyder, Lawrence V West, and Dean Compton, which he now claimed had never been made.
	

                                  Cox's 
Dayton News 
backed him up, charging: 'The statement 
The journal 
pub
 lished was deliberately made up in the office of that newspaper.'

 Though it was largely unnoticed by the mainstream media in the U.S. and Europe, the release of the manifesto made news in the Middle East and was a significant development in the raging battle between the Radicals and the Reformers.
	

On June 7, U.S. and Iraqi intelligence forces tracked down and killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the head of 'Al Qaeda in Iraq' (AQI), and several of Zargawi's top advisors, in a dramatically successful eve
ning air strike that instantly electrified Reformers and the Rank-and
 File alike as news spread throughout the country.

The news service went on to report that this security official had helped interrogate ten of the arrested evangelical pastors, had complained that Christian activities in Iran had gone 'out of control,' and was 'insist
ing that their church do something to stop the flood of Christian litera
 ture, television, and radio programs targeting Iran.''
	

In October 2004, Compass Direct, an international Chris
 tian news agency, reported that 'a top [Iranian] official within the Ministry of Security Intelligence spoke on state television's Channel 1, warning the populace against the many `foreign religions' active in the country and pledging to protect the nation's `beloved Shiite Islam' from all outside forces.'

• Revolutions (Luke 21:9, NIV) 
• The rise of false prophets and false messiahs (Matthew 24:4-5, 11, 23-27) 
• Wars and rumors of wars (Matthew 24:6) 
• Nations rising against nations (Matthew 24:7) 
• Kingdoms rising against kingdoms (Matthew 24:7) • Famines (Matthew 24:7) 
• Plagues (Luke 21:11) 
• Earthquakes (Matthew 24:7) and 'great earthquakes' (Luke 21:11) 
• 'Terrors' that lead to 'men fainting from fear' (Luke 21:11, 26) 
• Persecution of the believers (Matthew 24:9) 
• Apostasy and betrayal of one another (Matthew 24:10) • Increasing lawlessness (Matthew 24:12) 
• People's love for one another growing cold (Matthew 24:12)

• 'The roaring of the sea and the waves' (Luke 21:25) 
• The good news (the gospel) of Christ's love and forgive

 Jesus cautioned His followers not to speculate on the exact time of the Rapture or the Second Coming.
	

  In Matthew 
4:24-25, you 
 will find the news of Jesus' love and forgiveness spreading throughout all of Syria and Jordan.
	

In Acts 
2, 
 you will read that God poured out the Holy Spirit on the apostles, who immediately began preaching the good news of Christ's love and forgiveness to the Parthians (from northern Iran); the Medes (the Kurds); the Elamites (from southern Iran); the Mesopotamians (Iraqis); those from Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphilia (Turks); Egyptians; Libyans; people from Crete; and Arabs.

                          A SLOBBERING LOVE AFFAIR 
INTRODUCTION   
3 
My former colleagues at CBS News, as you might imag
ine, were not happy with 
Bias, 
and one even told Howard Kurtz of the 
Washington Post 
 that writing it 'was an act of treason.'
	

An NBC News correspondent even admitted that 'it's almost hard to remain objective' when covering such a towering presence as Barack Obama.
	

My left-wing friends, for example, hate FOX News and they honestly believe that all you get on FOX News are conservatives-one loudmouth right-winger after 
12 
 another.
	

                                                                                                                    His 
fans-devotees 
would be a better word-think he's the sanest guy in television news, maybe the only one with the guts to speak truth to 
28 
 power.
	

The Project for Excellence in Journalism found that MSNBC gave McCain the most negative news coverage of any television network.
	

                                                                                      
A few bigots yell something nasty at a McCain or Palin rally and it was national news-the 
New York Times 
 pronounced the Republican candidates guilty of 'race baiting.'
	

Needless to say, editors have every right to decide 
60   A SLOBBERING LOVE AFFAIR 

 what they think real news is.
	

76   A SLOBBERING LOVE AFFAIR 

 A few days later the tapes showed up on FOX News, where they were played over and over again.
	

I had just started with CBS News and I was one of the pro
 ducers covering the campaign of George McGovern.
	

LIFE IN THE BUBBLE 







W
 henever I speak about bias in the news, the one point I make sure to drive home is this: contrary to what some conservatives think, there is no vast left-wing conspiracy to slant the news.
	

                                                               Let me 
assure my conservative friends that Brian Williams does not show 
up at NBC News headquarters at Rockefeller 
Center in the morning, 
summon his top lieu
tenants, usher them into a little out-of-the-way room where 
106   A SLOBBERING LOVE AFFAIR 

he dims the lights and pulls the shades, and then, after every
one gives 
everyone else 
the secret handshake and salute, asks his journalistic comrades, 'How 
are we going to screw those conservatives today?' 
	

I'm sure it is nothing more than an odd coincidence 
118   A SLOBBERING LOVE AFFAIR 

that the three papers that got booted-the 
Washington Times, 
the 
New York Post, 
and the 
Dallas Morning 
 News-all endorsed McCain for president.
	

This time I was looking for everything ABC, CBS, and NBC News ran.
	

Charlie Cook, a well-respected, long-time journalist who specializes in election forecasts and political trends, told the audience, 'I think a lot of people in the news media were too young to cover Camelot and John Kennedy, they were too 
140   A SLOBBERING LOVE AFFAIR 

 young in most cases to cover Bobby Kennedy and so I think they were star struck by this Obama phenomenon.'
	

If I had still been at CBS News dur
 ing the campaign and had landed an interview with Barack Obama, I would have questioned him the old school way.
	

                 It's not that 
160   A SLOBBERING LOVE AFFAIR 

 those white males were bigots and would intentionally slant the news against women or African-Americans.
	

Not exactly a breaking news bulletin.
	

                                                                                                                      INDEX

From that came countless e-mails from the news folks, the agents, the producers, the

PROLOGUE 
FALL 2007-WINTER 2008 
Rupert Murdoch, a man without discernible hubris-or at least conventional grandiosity-had nevertheless begun to believe that his takeover of Dow Jones and the Wall 
Street 
 Journal, something he'd dreamt about for most of his career, might actually indicate that he and his company, News Corporation, had a certain destiny, a higher purpose of which the world should be made aware.
	

Not long before, Murdoch had favored his older son, Lachlan, and before 
The Man Who Owis the News 1

 that his daughter Elisabeth, to eventually run News Corp.
	

In fact, unbeknownst to the rest of News Corp.,
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        y   I   
MICHAEL WOLFF 
In light of the fact that Rupert Murdoch now owned the most important-all right, the second most important-newspaper in the world, not to mention having created the world's most success
ful media company and being quite possibly the most influential businessman of the age (certainly the most influential for the longest time), why wouldn't he want to figure out just how he'd done what he did and claim credit for it? (Of course, another rea
 sonable view, one that Murdoch-for so long a deal-a-minute guy-also seemed to subscribe to, was about how little meaning or calculated direction or vision there had been in the growth of News Corp.
	

The Man Who Owes the News 15 
 On the other hand, it also seemed a potentially great mistake to attribute too much sentiment or craving for positive recognition to his motivations.
	

The News Corp.
	

The News Corp.
	

     That characterization paralleled how Murdoch defined the pro
fession too: there were the elites, whose contempt for him encour
aged him to regard 
them 
as all the more contemptible, and there 
The Man Who Owns the News 1

were those who worked for him, who were, necessarily, true believ
 ers in him.

As soon as the takeover was sealed there was another, reflex

MICHAEL WOLFF 
 Now, it is true that William Shawcross, whose biography of Murdoch was published in 1992, clearly thought Murdoch was in a wind-down phase (Murdoch's second wife, Anna, thought this too, frequently telling people that he had assured her of his imminent retirement 'And she believed him!' said Prudence, his daughter from his first marriage), when, in fact, News Corp.

            He perhaps knows as much about the various aspects

of putting out a newspaper-paper, printing, distribution, adver

 Such happiness has not been taken for granted by the people running Dow Jones.
	

At Dow Jones itself you could find executives and reporters consulting their Bloomberg terminals, while the Telerate machines weren't even

 of nice, reasonable, and, well, normal guys ready to run outsized media businesses: Chernin at News; Jeffrey Bewkes, the number two at Time Warner; Bob Iger, the number two at Disney.
	

Fox News, which rubs Chernin, a Democrat, wrong, is still an irritant, but Murdoch, with a little help from Chernin and Gary Ginsberg, has even been warming up to the Democrats.
	

                                                     The dispar

And if you know anything at all about doing business with Murdoch, you know you have to gossip about something, have to hold out the possibility of unsettled relationships, of changing alliances, of exploiting other people's weakness, of far-flung, unthought-of

                                    It's instructive to consider the legacies of Murdoch's three most direct owner-operator peers (each of whom he helped destroy): 
The Mao Who Owns the News 1 
235 
Robert Maxwell, whose likely suicide by drowning in 1991, off the back of his yacht 
Lady Ghislaine 
as it cruised around the Canary Islands, happened just as his empire was about to implode; Conrad Black, whose trial for looting his own company was in progress dur
 ing the Dow Jones battle; and Ted Turner, who made a fortune almost as great as Murdoch's but lost his company.
	

And then, like Maxwell and Black but minus the criminal com-

room, detailed as it occurred, sent to me minutes after it happened: 
 He slips into the newsroom just after 3:00.
	

And he walks top-heavy too-that way news editors have of leaning forward into their stride, on a mission.
	

He's not engaged, and then he's caught 
The Mai Who Owis dhe News 1

 up in the most basic details, overly focused, abrupt, nagging.
	

Here was Murdoch, 'intemperate and disagreeable,' with his 'bitter animus, stridently voiced,' 'deliberately seeking, through 
The Nam Who Owes the News I 
24, 
 extravagance of language and extremity of views, to get a reaction or a rise,' when not otherwise 'non-communicative,' appointing lieutenants who egged him on 'in his impulsiveness and ape him in intolerance and rudeness,' who were constantly engaged with him 'in muttered conversation,' with Murdoch's face 'framed in a scowl which seemed to stop not far short of malevolence.'
	

It is his great certitude that makes him, in the words of former

First of all, it's the most successful, most thriving, and largest news organization in the world.
	

    There is certainly no feeling of existential dread-Could 
all 
this go

tomorrow?-which is the feeling at so many other news organiza
 tions in the markets dominated by Murdoch.
	

It is pretty easy, in the 60 percent of the market he controls in Australia, at his dominant papers and broadcast outlets in the United Kingdom, at the Post and at Fox News in the United States, to feel a sense of relief that you've made it to a safe harbor.

 Journalism, when you work for Murdoch, is good sport.
	

In 2006, for instance, the Post got wind that a student at the prestigious Collegiate School had threatened 'to go Columbine'; with Post reporters at its door,

While still the biggest story, election coverage waned during the summer in the period 
172 
 between the nominating campaigns and the conventions, falling to a low of 21 percent of the news hole in early August.
	

There was a slight surge in elec
 tion news in July when Obama took a trip to Europe and the Middle East which invigorated coverage in the U.S. and abroad.
	

While a sizable portion of the electorate consulted new 
179 
180 
 media sources, the majority relied primarily on established television network and cable news for their campaign information.
	

In addition, audience appetite for political news was fleeting, and dropped off immediately following the campaign.
	

Circulation increased for a small number of papers, including USA Today, a national newspaper, the 
Wall Street journal, 
whose extensive coverage of economic issues drove readership as the country 
182 
 experienced a financial downturn, and a handful of papers specializing in local community news (MacMillan, 2008).
	

                                                                  183

News Web sites, which had gained a tremendous following during the cam
 paign, saw the biggest drop in traffic.
	

                                                            million individ
uals per minute visited the online news sites for CNN, MSNBC, Reuters, and 
 BBC, besting a record set during the final game of the World Cup soccer match in 2006 and the NCAA basketball championship in 2007 (Schonfeld, 2008).
	

lost one-third of its traffic, while Fox News and Yahoo News each experienced declines of over 20 percent (Fahri, 20086).
	

One of these revolutionary moments was during the 1964 presidential campaign, when television and the nightly 
187 
188 
 newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC supplanted newspapers as the primary way Americans get their news.
	

The 2008 election seems to be anoth
 er of these transformative events, as the Internet became a major source of campaign news for the American public.
	

According to preelection survey data gathered from the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, 33 percent of Americans claimed that the Internet was a major source for news about the 2008 campaigns.
	

Even fewer cited radio (15 percent ) and news magazines (2 percent).
	

Local newscasts continue to rank as the most popular news programs on televi
 sion-capturing 52 percent of the viewing public on a regular basis in 2008 (but have experienced a steady decline since 2002).
	

Only 29 percent of the American public relied on the nightly network newscasts (ABC, CBS, and NBC) to get their campaign news, representing a decline for the fourth consecutive election cycle.$
	

With this ver
 bal hacky sack they kicked around the idea of whether the day's news would affect the outcome of the nomination and election.
	

Access to millions of e-mails also made it easier to mobilize supporters into action (the Obama Action Wire), to rebut negative news stories, to complain about attack ads, or to protest guests on talk shows.
	

Forty-seven percent of those who listed newspapers and magazines as their primary news source held at least one

Even if 'black people as a group' might still be justified in displaying some general distrust of white America writ large (already a controversial con
tention), 'the time-tested skepticism in black communi
ties' must still provide space for distinctions between and among particular white citizens that blacks meet while go
 ing about their daily lives.

But why not treat a teen arrested for marijuana use much the same way we treat someone arrested for drunk driving when no injury occurs? Why not use the arrest as an opportunity and require kids cited for marijuana possession to be screened psychologically and referred for help if appropriate, and to attend sessions to learn about the dangers of marijuana use and how to decline the next time they are offered a joint? The incentive to be screened and attend such classes would be the threat of the alternative: for the first couple of arrests, loss of a driver's 
126 
 license or a fine stiff enough to sting that has to be paid by the teen or worked off; for continued use, intensive treatment, including random testing and staying clean to avoid jail time.

I felt confident that my college years would be my sexual experimentation years, when I would find The One by testing out various scenarios and partners and discovering which of my trial runs I might want to become my lifelong reality.

Her son Donald is a low-key and methodical steward who carefully developed the company's interests in the education market; its Kaplan unit, which offers preparation for standardized tests and mail-order degrees, is now the company's main profit driver.

THE DEVIL WE KNOW 
 For the last fifteen years, Iran has demonstrated a consistent, coherent strategy: It tests its strategy, vets its proxies, judges who is serious and who isn't, and makes plans accordingly.
	

But there may be nothing on earth that compares with the protracted audition presidential candidates must undergo-a series of tests in the performing arts in which policy positions and coalitional strate
 gies often take a backseat to the capacity of an aspiring president to connect with the electorate on the basis of the personality he or she projects.
	

Then the country would face economic crisis coupled with political stalemate.
	

People blamed their slowly worsening circumstances on themselves rather than coming together in a movement for political change.

Even a traditionally race-neutral figure such as Bill Cosby, once dubbed 'America's favorite dad,' might show up on the African continent with some kind of political project to launch, especially since he has been putting his money (million-dollar donations to important African American institutions) and his mouth (controversial criticisms of poorer African Americans' cultural pathologies) smack

digging only netted more gossip, weirder and wilder re

It was the Klan's commitment to the Bible, a literal reading with racial inflections, that provided moral weight for their holy crusade against racial amalgamation and blacks' short-lived political gains during Reconstruction.

the world are steeped in complicated religious justifications for societal changes that have always used sacred texts, religious stories, and deific laws to authorize political de
mands, especially demands by the exploited and disenfran
 chised for social autonomy and equality.
	

America's long history of religiously validating political claims foreshadows the Religious Right's recent scale tip

Even politicians, ever coy and careful with their public pronouncements, didn't feel required to be particularly cautious about supporting

 racial inequality.
	

They made no bones about the fact that they believed blacks were inherently inferior to whites; even many of those political figures who fought against slavery and for equal rights feared that Africans might truly be hereditarily inferior.

tellectual underachievement in the 1970s and 1980s, they felt pummeled by their colleagues and responded by de
nouncing those critics for their supposed use of ideo

                                    That's because

In light of the civil rights movement's moral recalibrations and the ascendance of political correctness as the norma

The most prevalent rumors circulating within black communities today tend to have more in common with Cointelpro than with 1996, concentrating on systematic

 political ideologies rather than personal attacks.
	

Something like the spirit of their accusations animated everyday political con

 conspiracy to use as a political issue against Governor Thomas Bennett Jr., who owned some of the accused slaves.
	

In recent decades, a time marked by rapid change in both the political and media environments, reporters have be
 come even more important sources of information for citizens.
	

                                                                                                                                Candidates them
selves have adapted by increasingly becoming individual political entre
preneurs selling their messages to the voters directly, often through sophisticated, media-friendly (and citizen-friendly) appeals like John Mc
Cain's 'Straight Talk Express' in 2000 and Ross Perot's televised in
 fomercials in 1992 (Owen 2002; Patterson 1994; Polsby and Wildavsky 2000; Vavreck 2001).
	

While reporters are less likely to receive such public adulation today, journalists continue to play an important role in keeping political candidates and government officials accountable (Cook 2005).
	

As in 1996, no policy issue dominated the fall campaign in 2000 the way 
 Iraq dominated political discussions during 2004, the economy pervaded public debate in Campaign 1992, or crime arid defense issues defined Campaign 1988.
	

These two stories demon
 strate that, even a generation ago, the nation's top political reporters placed horse race issues front arid center in their newscasts.
	

'Reporters present at the scene laughed so hard they could be heard on the film soundtrack,' observed political scientist Herbert Par

This overall pattern differed little from network to network or according to the aspects of their candidacies that were most frequently addressed-their policies, their political skills, and the way they conducted their campaigns.
	

Evaluations of their political skills were slightly less favorable, with Gore receiving 41 percent and Bush 34 percent positive comments.
	

Political novice Steve Forbes, a wealthy magazine publisher who could remain in the race thanks to his willingness to spend down his immense personal fortune, received the lowest rating of any remotely viable candidate, with 36 percent positive press.
	

When journalists flame political events strategically, they activate existing beliefs and understand
 ings; they do not need to create them.
	

(Cappella and jarnieson 1997:208) 
 Above all, says political scientist Roderick I fart, today's negatively oriented media coverage of politics tends to suggest that elections and politicians are not worth much respect.
	

It could have been used as evidence against the political system itself, for the system allowed such a self-centered, ambitious, and ultimately self- 
154 
 destructive man to rise to the pinnacle of power in America (Owen 2000; Sabato et al.
	

This sampling procedure, designed by political scientists Ann Crigler and Marion just, yielded the equivalent of a single 'composite' local newspaper without any consistent regional or local bias.
	

America's elec
 tions, its central marketplace of ideas, is being filled by mainstream media with junk food that slowly rots our political discourse.
	

Surveys show that most voters direct most of their ire at reporters, not at the candi
 dates, the political parties, or even the much-maligned political consultants.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                         The many political con
troversies of 1968, and Humphrey's subsequent loss to Richard M. Nixon, led to major reforms in the nomination process that gave rank-and-file par
tisan voters effective control over both the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations in 1972, and for every presidential campaign since then ((teaser 1979; Maisel 2002; Polsby 1983; Polsby and Wil
 davsky 2000).
	

Reducing media influence in presidential nominations by reducing the citizen influence in them would be a terrible idea from the standpoint of political participation, particularly when nearly half the coun
 try's adults don't vote in presidential elections as it is.

Giving two sides of the story in a child kidnapping case is part of the process; giving two sides of the story in a political race is a dirty trick of the Republican Attack Machine.

When Clinton was caught doling out Lincoln bedroom sleepovers, White House coffees, and dinners to big campaign contributors based on lists of political donors on file at the Democratic National Committee,' the Clinton White House denied that the database was being used for campaign purposes, explaining that it was the presi

I urge you to demand that the United States reorder its national priorities, that we follow a principled and effective foreign policy that is rooted in the respect for law and the effective use of multilateral and bilateral diplomacy; that we eschew war and 
76   +   Chapter Four 
violence as the means of 'getting our way' in the world; and that we respect cultural, religious, and political differences, and we in
 sist on democratic principles and the respect for internationally recognized human rights.

Crimes against women cross every religious, racial, political, educational, and socioeconomic line; it is unfortu

A family that can work through differences without resorting to angry words and actions creates members of the global community who will take the same approach to solving conflicts which extend across political and religious borders.
	

There are few examples of such a unilateral view becoming the overriding thesis of our foreign policy, and as a result of our occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, our threats toward Iran, and our castigation of countries like France who opposed our tactics, we have become diplomatic and political pariahs around the globe.

Accordingly, few people voted; and the 'people's choice' was Democrat James E. Martine, a long

It was a victory of the 'Progressives' of both parties, who are determined to live no longer under either of the political organiza

The talk quickly turned political; White revealed that Roo

He was, therefore, tolerated and he served well and efficiently for a moral and political example.
	

The country recognized in Hoover a man who was fully equipped and qualified for the Presidency, who was not seeking it and was making no concession to any political group, and the trend of public opinion was all his

Greenspan surely deserves credit for the strong performance of the economy during his chairmanship, but he also had some notable mistakes, includ

AN INDEPENDENCE ASSESSMENT 
The Fed's legal structure is quite complicated, making it hard to as
 sess its real degree of independence from political pressure.
	

The designation of a chairman every four years provides another potential lever of political pressure.
	

No doubt there is still a steady undercurrent of political pressure on 
50 
BERNANKE'SBACKDROP 
 the Fed: members of Congress are not shy about giving advice to the Fed, and the chairman is frequently called in to talk to individual members and key committees.

directive for a starship captain is that there can be no interference with the internal affairs of other civilizations; it is not an overstate
 ment to say the prime directive for Fed officials is to avoid political matters that unnecessarily risk the independence of the Fed.
	

Greenspan came of age during a pe
 riod of intense political pressure on the Fed, and he only reluctantly opened the Fed to outside scrutiny.
	

All of the problems that arise in countering asset market bubbles-imprecise models, pol
icy lags, political ramifications of putting a check on market exuber
 ance, and the need for a risk-management approach-also apply when the Fed is raising interest rates to cool off an overheating economy.
	

Paul Volcker stepped in at the most challenging point in modern Fed history: in the face of massive political pressure and with inflation running out of control he was obliged to stomp on the monetary policy brakes immediately.
	

First, has he handled the economy and financial markets effectively-has he eased policy too much or too little? Second, why does such a strong proponent of trans
parency seem to have had so much trouble communicating? Third, is he or the Fed as an institution susceptible to political pressure? 

DRAWN AND QUARTERED 
As this book goes to press, the perfect storm of weak growth, rising inflation, and falling financial markets has unleashed a wave of crit
 icism of the Fed.

But just as the system itself was not devised by the soldiers who actually enforce it, what it reflects isn't the goodness or badness of those soldiers but rather a political logic that exists beyond them as individuals.
	

And policies of expulsion or transfer are the publicly declared objectives of leading Israeli political parties to this day, most notably the party of Deputy Prime Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Yisrael Beiteinu, or 'Israel Is Our Home.'

Palestine Inside Out 
 The fighting, and the subsequent apparent split between the West Bank and Gaza, marked the culmination of a political crisis set in motion by the Palestinian Legislative Council elections won by Hamas in January 2006.
	

People across Leb
 anon's complex religious and political spectrum, from Shia Muslim to Maronite Catholic, supported Hizballah's resistance operations against the Israeli army in the years leading up to the Israeli withdrawal in 2000 not because they believed in its Islamism, or its ideology, but simply because they wanted an end to Israel's brutal occupation of Lebanon.
	

Those concrete realities matter far more than the announcement, at Annapolis, of a 'new beginning' for a political process that has already had far too many beginnings and far too little to show for them.
	

Given that a Palestinian state requires both a real government and continuous territory, and that the basis for both is being steadily undermined by Israel's own policies, he writes, 'they believe the only long-term way to end the conflict will be to abandon the idea of dividing the land, and, instead, simply insist on the civil, political and national rights of the two peoples, Jews and Arabs, who populate the land, in one State.'
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                                         More and more people, on both sides of the conflict, are coming to real
ize that the age of the two-state solution has drawn to a close, as Alvaro de Soto also admits in his confidential report to the U.N. Committed Zionists from across the political spectrum will resist the move toward the one-state solution in the way that privileged groups have always his
 torically resisted the erosion of their privileges.

Instead of coercion, he chose persuasion; instead of drawing the sword, he would draw on his own character and political instincts.

FDR 
BECAME PRESIDENT, 
he had no carefully worked out political philosophy or rigorous approach to governing be
 yond a penchant for action.
	

Without it, he would have been like Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., or his own sons James, Elliott, and Franklin junior in later years: the bearer of a famous name and a fierce political ambition but nothing else to set him apart.
	

                                                                                                                                   100

Roosevelt caved, drawing a labored distinction between economic internationalism, which he said he favored, and political international
 ism, which he said he opposed.
	

The League, he noted accurately, was not the League conceived by Woodrow Wilson but instead had become a 'mere meeting place' for political discussion: 'I do not favor Ameri
 can participation.'
	

They argued that going to Califor
 nia would be a political mistake.*

EARLY FEBRUARY, 
 the president-elect was in political trouble.
	

No letters or accounts reflect
 ing his feelings survive; all we know is that he had left a broken man, his political career in ruins, and returned as the most dynamic new head of state in the world.
	

The last hundred years have brought 
us 
negative exam
 ples--Stalin, Hitler, and Mao-and several positive ones that compel our attention to the role of particular human qualities in the unfolding of momentous political events.
	

Raines later said, 'The phrase was in the political air that year.

Sensing potential greatness, Howe had undertaken to teach him politics and had become an all-purpose political aide and confidant, acting as everything from surrogate to strategist to speechwriter.
	

'Three years in the Map Room-that hadn't educated me to do political speeches for the president,' Elsey said with a laugh.
	

He traveled across the country and back by train, making five major speeches and around forty minor ones-all ostensibly non-political addresses savaging what he started calling 'the good-for-nothing, do nothing, Republican Eightieth Congress.'
	

He wanted to make it clear that political and economic equality would not mean social equality-'or that a Negro should court my daughter.'
	

                                                                                                                                          Sorensen was 'not a Harvard man or an Easterner or a Catholic or an Irishman or

WHITE HOUSE GHOSTS 
 In the 1968 campaign Nixon had talked about 'quiet Americans,' the 'quiet majority,' and 'the silentcenter, the millions of people in the middle of the American political spectrum who do not demonstrate, who do not picket or protest loudly.'
	

                                                                                                                                  WHITE HOUSE GHOSTS 
Rafshoon geared up the administration for a big 'new foundation' publicity push; the slogan was gaining cultural traction: the political comic strip 
Doonesbury 
 even devoted a week to ridiculing it.
	

'Are they important in terms of the political pecking order?' Peggy Noonan was quoted as saying in 
 The New York Times.
	

He would praise them for making progress in expanding political power for minorities and for creating a black middle class.
	

WHITE HOUSE GHOSTS 
 Part of the problem also lay in Clinton's speechwriters' political bent.
	

The two men's relationship was tense, each drawn to the other's political acumen but disdainful of their personality.
	

Clinton would be the apex, between and above the political parties.
	

Shooting the breeze, Chris Matthews, the Carter speechwriter turned political commentator, threw out an idea about what Clinton's message ought to be.
	

WHITE HOUSE GHOSTS 
 'We are here in the middle hour of our grief,' Bush told an audience that included four former presidents and most of the capital's political, military, law enforcement, and intelligence leadership-and the nation.

This book focuses on the dominant powers of the time, the Soviet Union and Nazi Ger
 many, but analyzes the catastrophe itself in global terms, in an effort to lay bare its large-scale political and ideological nature.
	

All this happened in what was to be only the first phase of the great social and political catastro
 phe.
	

The political explanation on February 1'7, 1919, of the need for the camps was provided by a report written by Dzerzhinsky and co-authored by Kamenev and Stalin: 
Along with sentencing by courts it is necessary to retain administra
 tive sentencing-namely, the concentration camp.
	

From the first days of the revolution under Kerensky, special political commissars had been appointed, and Trotsky continued this procedure.
	

                               The commissars were there to maintain vigi
lance on the morale and 'political reliability' of the troops and discour
 age desertions-which were and remained endemic.

 The Cossacks had enjoyed special social and political status under the tsarist regime.
	

With the rise of Fascism in Italy, Mussolini opened another radical option on the European political landscape.
	

The uproar in Germany was universal, and all political parties drew 
FIRST NAZI ATTEMPT TO SEIZE POWER   105 
 together to consider what to do.
	

Our task, the mission of the National Socialist movement, is to bring our own people to such political awareness that they will not see their goal for the future in the breath-taking terms of a new Alexander's conquest, but in the industrious work of the German plow, to which the sword need only give soil

 By mid-February 1925, only months out of prison, Hitler was laying the groundwork for a new approach to gaining political power.

BATTLE FOR COMMUNIST UTOPIA 
B
y the time Lenin died at age fifty-three on January 
21, 1924, 
 the Communist regime was established and its key features in place.
	

He became a prime example of a new political breed, men and women who devoted themselves selflessly to some higher cause and who were prepared to deny themselves all the worldly comforts to attain their ends.

GERMANS MAKE A PACT WITH HITLER

NAZI PARTY AS SOCIAL MOVEMENT 
W
 eimar democracy was able to shut out the extremist parties like the Nazis and the Communists for a while, but at the end of the 
19zos, 
 when the economy collapsed, Germans gradually deserted more moderate parties and, in desperation and doubt, threw their support behind political extremism.
	

As deputies they had railway passes and could travel all over the country at state expense and give political talks.
	

                          IS 
TERROR AS POLITICAL PRACTICE 
S
 oviet law enforcement in the 192os and 1930s was far from being ever present and all knowing.
	

By mid-1934 around twelve million residents in 'regime' cities zoo 
TERROR AS POLITICAL PRACTICE   241 
 had passports, which more or less guaranteed or 'privileged' supplies.

 mitting suicide an individual is trying to threaten the Party, to tell it that by mistreating those who commit political crimes, the Party cripples people and forces them to put revolvers to their own heads.'
	

Hitler's political program, from the battle against Marxism to the renewal of Germany as a great power, matched perfectly with the wishes of the armed forces.
	

Giving the money may have been less than 'wholly voluntary,' but it is an over
statement to suggest it was a 'mild foretaste of the political extortion' to 
WINNING OVER THE NATION   
293 
 come.
	

The Soviets reverted to political methods, but there was no doubt that the aim was to create dictatorships along the lines of the Leninist model.
	

The bourgeoisie would have to be 
345 
a 
346   
LENIN, STALIN, AND HITLER 
 disarmed, and 'open armed conflict with the political power' carried through to victory.
	

                                                                                  In 
352   
LENIN, STALIN, AND HITLER 
a communication to Walther von Brauchitsch, commander in chief of the army, on March 
25, 
 he said the issue would be solved when political conditions were right; Poland 'ought to be beaten down, so that it will not need to be taken into account as a political factor for the next decades.''
	

For us Communists, antifascists, a people who stood on philosophical and political ground diametrically opposed to Hitler, to suddenly join forces in this war-how could we? Certainly the average citizen saw it that way.
	

It is a subtle political game.'
	

WAR OF EXTERMINATION AS NAZI CRUSADE   
423 Future political image Russia: 
 Northern Russia goes to Finland.
	

The problem was viewed as straight
 forward: the German people had to eat, a priority to keep up morale; Western Europe also had to be fed for political reasons; German troops would have to 'live off the land'; and with the disruptions caused by war, there would be a shortfall.
	

That endangers our own security and the rapid pacification of the conquered areas; (2) the originators of barbaric and Asiatic meth-

 ods of war are the political commissars.
	

       The Soviet Union adopted the ideological mask of collective leader
ship, all in the name of the proletariat and peasants, but the political 
EPILOGUE   
 581 structure put in place by Lenin was especially susceptible to being manipulated by shrewd operators like himself and his successor.
	

The terror of these early years was real enough, but it was primarily aimed against Jews, specific social outsiders like criminals, and certain

He explodes many of the journalistic and political myths that have become widely accepted....
	

The decades of academic debate about the nature of terrorism had produced a cacophony of definitions, distinguishing between political motivation and naked nihilism, and between attacks targeting civilians 
18 
WAR AND DECISION 
THIS MEANS WAR   19 
 and those targeting the military under various circumstances-on duty, off duty, inside, or outside a combat zone.
	

He saw this as one of the 'self-inflicted wounds which impaired the standing of the State Department within the Government' 
 State has unusually potent antibodies against political direction from the White House.*
	

In his memoirs, Henry Kissinger praised the abilities and hard work of Foreign Service professionals but noted that 'the reverse side of their dedication is the conviction that a lifetime of service and study has given them insights that transcend the untrained and shallow-rooted views of political appoin
 tees.'
	

This caused political appointees to advocate, only half-jokingly, 'civilian control' of the Foreign Service-on the model of the Defense Department.
	

                                                                                                                                       Political commenta

*Franklin D. Roosevelt also expressed frustration with the State Department: 'The Treasury is so large and far-flung and ingrained in its practices that 
I 
find it almost impossible to get the action and results 
I

 I came into the Reagan Administration along with others who had started their political lives left of center, many of them formerly (or currently) registered Democrats.
	

                                                                                  It had long been standard procedure 
in 
Washington-on the right and the left-to refer to one's political opponents as extremists, and I had been amply warned 
44

 to endure the Senate confirmation process with the traditional groveling lack of dignity, so I took Levin's insult in stride.
	

They will weigh the risks that abandoning our strategy, which had been working successfully, might have destroyed the promising political process launched in Bonn.

 zai did not try to ruin his warlord rival and Pacha Khan eventually joined the political process: In the September 2005 national elections, he won a seat in the Afghan parliament.
	

That suspicion would in the end derail the U.S. government's preparations and plans for Iraq's political transition.
	

Referring to State's 'transitional civil authority' proposal, Rumsfeld warned: 'An international presence, or interim international `commission', would not be an adequate substitute for helping friendly indigenous forces establish their political and military authority quickly on the ground.'
	

Such forces could help provide local political leadership (or assist Iraqi officials in doing so).
	

A political conference would allow the Iraqis to engage in give-and-take on such fundamental matters as individual rights, federalism, and the role of religion, and these democratic practices might be carried forward into the politics of liberated Iraq.*
	

                                                                        
The Iraq Political-Military Cell (run by the Joint Staff) was not always suc
 cessful in coordinating between Washington policy makers and CENTCOM.
	

Our key political values-democratic self-government and the pro
 tection of individual rights-can be safeguarded only if the U.S. remains a sovereign state....
	

This work had been supervised either by the Executive Steering Group, chaired by Franklin Miller of Rice's staff, or by the Iraq Political-Military Cell, led by military officers on General Myers's staff.
	

The array of new special committees created in the summer of 2002-the Iraq Political-Military Cell, the Executive Steering Group, and several others-remained active, and they were joined by new interagency teams created to develop plans for relief and reconstruction.*
	

And the army was corrupt and generally detested among Iraqis for its history of domestic murder, destruction of villages, and political repression.
	

Each combatant command is served by a senior State Department political adviser, or POLAD, and a senior CIA intelligence liaison.
	

These officials understandably exercise a great deal of influence-especially on political-military issues, about which military officers may have little back
 ground and no strong views of their own.
	

Accordingly, he favored thinking of the initial political arrangement after Saddam's overthrow as an Iraqi provisional 
authority 
 rather than a provisional government.
	

                                                                                                                                    408 
Tenet implies here that there was some alternative proposal on the table for an 'open-ended political process that Americans could influ
 ence but not control.'
	

                                                   In the political dimen- 
436   WAR AND DECISION 
sion, the story of post-Saddam Iraq is the painful tale of a missed opportu

                                                   First, he 'wanted to have more time to consult with my political advisers before plunging into deli
cate discussions about our plans for the interim government' His second and third reasons are revealing: 'Also, I wanted to signal to the Iraqi politi

 Groundhog Day.
	

Springfield, capital of Illinois, was where he wanted to be-needed to be-on that frigid February 
11, 2007- 
 It was there, he knew, that he had begun his political career as a state legislator only a decade earlier.
	

In a personal sense, Obama's trip to Springfield was a political home
 coming.
	

He settled down to build the foundation of a political career as a community orga
 nizer, civil rights lawyer, and law professor.
	

Academics furiously debate the political intent of this deal.
	

In pioneer days they were a liberating political force, opposed to hierarchical authority, especially an 'established' church, of any kind.
	

Luckily for Frist (at least it seemed lucky at the time) the Baptists' leading political figure in the early 199os was Dr. Richard Land, who had close ties to Karl 
 THE ROLE OF FAITH.
	

He could educate Frist in the political ways of the Word.
	

Dr. Land had a simpler political reaction, but equally to the point.
	

He had said from the beginning of his political adventure that he would serve only two terms in the Senate, and as his second term drew 
THE ROLE OF FAITH   61 
 to a close in the fall of 2oo6, the only remaining question was whether he would run for the GOP presidential nomination.

Marshall saw an urgent need to broker a peace between nascent political parties at a time when warfare was threatening to rip the young republic apart.
	

'It wasn't ideological but it

No one in the inner circle of political, diplomatic, military, or legal advisers acted as a brake on Bush's (and Dick Cheney's) commander/caudillo instincts.

From the seventeenth century onward, America's role in the world of commerce was defined by the tug-of-war between restrictive rules and raucous freedom-the former more the result of political than profit
 making calculations.
	

The audience was an appropriate one, one that Trippi knew

We have en

      We have a history of rising to the occasion, but the theory of this book is that history eventually stops repeating itself, and what better time for that to happen than after a massive, 
12   THE GREAT DERANGEMENT 
nationally televised attack that most of an entire country appar
ently missed the point of? When a people can no longer agree even on the basic objective facts of their political existence, the equation changes; real decisions, even in the approximate direc
 tion of righteousness, eventually become impossible.
	

There was no commonly accepted set of facts, except in the imagination of a hopelessly daft political and media elite that had long ago lost touch with the general public.
	

                                                                                                   
THESE DAYS 
they're in charge, masters of their domain, but back then, the four Democratic members of the Rules Com
mittee were some of the very saddest politicians in Wash
 ington, victims of some of the most severe ritualistic political abuse Congress has seen in quite some time.
	

Instead, for the biggest issue of the election season, for a national vote that for most people is their only political decision in years, the Democrats avoided taking any stance at all, essentially saying, 'We'll wait to see the conclusions of a random independent group of academics, and then we'll make our own decision.'
	

                                              In order to advance his agenda, Hagee hired a long-standing D.C. political opera
tive named David Brog to lobby his cause on the Hill; Brog is a former chief of staff for Pennsylvania senator Arlen Specter, 
158   THE GREAT DERANBEMENT 
former Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Commit
 tee.
	

200 
 This was a sort of Church of America, where the religious and political orthodoxies were inextricable.
	

So instead of having a political awaken
 ing, they just went further down the rabbit hole of geeked-up patriotic paranoia, into a place where the other side isn't merely wrong, but made up actually of conspirator-killers or terrorists or agents of Satan, not even really human beings.
	

But not many people are buying this bullshit anymore, and 
302   THE GREAT DERANGEMENT 
EPILOGUE   303 
 that may mark the beginning of something genuinely new in the American political system.
	

                                                                                                    The Derangement that I de
scribe in this book kicked off when Americans finally figured out that they'd been betrayed by their mainstream political sys
 tem, but still failed to abandon that old paradigm completely.
	

In return for unchallenged control of the education of Catholic children in Germany, the dropping of Nazi propaganda against the abuses in
 flicted in Catholic schools and orphanages, and the concession of other privileges to the church, the Holy See instructed the Catholic Center Party to disband, and brusquely ordered Catholics to abstain from any political activity on any subject that the regime chose to define as off-limits.
	

The twenty-three million Catholics living in the Third Reich, many of whom had shown great individual cour
 age in resisting the rise of Nazism, had been gutted and gelded as a political force.

Barack Obama was able to navigate his way through the long history of political corruption in Illinois while Rod Blagojevich was caught up in corrupt schemes seem
 ingly far worse than his predecessors had ever attempted.

 Blagojevich was building his political power at the same time another young Illinois Democrat was rising through the ranks and making his name known on the national scene.

Both boys remember spirited din

The sons mirrored their parents' conflict

He loved the combative nature of the poem, the description of what it took to be a man, and today he often refers to it when asked to describe his political philosophy.

 western, Rod Blagojevich and his friend Mike Ascaridis decided to treat themselves to New York City.
	

At that raucus City Council meeting Mell helped orchestrate a political move that returned the anti-Washington forces to power.
	

Pay-to-Play on Steroids 


ROD BLAG0JEVICH 
 swept into office promising to clean out the stain of political corruption that had dogged the State of Illinois for decades.
	

He was sought out as an astute political strategist and was even tapped by Har
 vard University m2002 to teach a course on the financial aspects of presidential campaigns.

New Man in Springfield 
 While the new Blagojevich administration had made promises to reform the state's hiring and firing practices, to many in Springfield its actions looked a lot like old-line political patronage politics-but at a higher price.
	

                                                               Those around Mell say he wasn't interested in ben
efiting personally from Blagojevich's position as governor, as Rezko and Levine were, but he had hoped for some

the main attraction; he rarely attended governor's confer
 ences or other large political events.
	

Political corruption was scarcely a new phenomenon in Illinois, but 'selling a Senate seat' or 'shaking down a children's hospital'-that was simply beyond the bounds of what most citizens or even shady politicians could tol
 erate.

Fallout: A New Senator 
THE CHARGES 
 leveled against Governor Rod Blagojevich in Patrick Fitzgerald's criminal complaint stunned the political world, not just in Illinois but across the nation.
	

                   To make sure those U.S. senators who 
199 
had vowed not to seat anyone appointed by Blagojevich un
 derstood just how high the race-based political stakes were, Rush issued this warning: 'I don't think that any U.S. senator that's sitting in the Senate right now wants to go on record to deny one African American from being seated in the U.S. Senate.'

A NOTE ON THE AUTHOR 
Elizabeth Brackett is a correspondent for PBS's 
The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, 
 reporting on national politics, finance, the environment, science, and sports.
	

She has won a Peabody Award for her political reporting as well as a National Emmy.
	

Moscow's surrogate local regimes lack political credibility-locals view them as Russia's lackeys and hired guns-and their personnel are being killed in steadily rising numbers.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Still, even accepting that our national self-esteem and our politi
cal leaders' political fortunes are most easily protected by maintaining the foreign-policy status quo, this did not seem a satisfactory excuse for what my research suggested was a deepening reluctance to make the protection of U.S. interests and citizens the federal government's top priority, and an almost blase acceptance of war for purposes unconnected to America's 
Introduction 
 national interests.
	

The Hezbollah camps were internationally known; they were condemned and threatened from every political rostrum in the United States and Western Europe; and they were left absolutely undisturbed.
	

 Washington's resolute, bipartisan maintenance of these alliances, with countries renowned for political intolerance, religious bigotry, and stud
ied duplicity, has done more than anything else to undercut the Muslim world's perception of America as a model for Fair-minded and tolerant self
 government.
	

                                                                                    Again, I claim no Kissinger- or Richard Pipes-like experience or 
57 
expertise on either Cold War history or the USSR as a political entity, but I can at least claim to be an informed observer of both, and a bit-better
 than-average student of America's steadily worsening confrontation with the Islamic world.
	

As a sign of the influence the Saudi regime wields within the U.S. government our continued requests to the Saudis were ultimately not sup
 ported by senior U.S. political and diplomatic officials in the Clinton administration.
	

Half a millennium ago the Italian political philoso
 pher Niccola Machiavelli reminded his readers that a nation cannot use patience and goodness to subdue enemies; it must exact vengeance through punitive actions that annihilate present enemies and make their successors think twice before pursuing attacks that risk the same response' Perhaps more pertinent words for Americans, though harsher sounding, are those of the Civil War era's General Philip H. Sheridan.
	

Without exception, U.S. political leaders, Republican and Democratic, approached the wars with Cold War assumptions,.
	

This last comment, however, often leads to acrimony, as some questioners assume I am either a Clinton-basher or a Bush-detractor (I am both on their failure to defend America) and that such partisanship makes me a shill for 
109 
 one or the other party, or an intelligence officer trying to find political scapegoats to blame for the CIA's failure to collect intelligence good enough to allow bin Laden to be eliminated.'
	

Currently, for example, Afghan jihad veterans lead several antigovernment political
military groups in Thailand, and in Bangladesh five or more Afghan veter
 ans will run as candidates when the next parliamentary election occurs.'
	

                                                                                                                                                                                           Oddly, a good deal of schol
arship suggests that the educated, under-thirty generation increasingly belongs to bin Laden and the Islamists,' And again Zakaria, this time telling Americans not to worry but be happy because U.S. foreign policy 
 and its actions in Iraq have not motivated Muslims to wage war against America; rather Muslims are just so dumb and gullible that 'militant, political Islam has brainwashed young Muslims around the world who believe it is their duty to fight against' the modem world.'
	

Our faith is a barely tolerated, once-a-week duty; an as-needed and often cynical fillip to political rhetoric; and noth
 ing worth fighting for.
	

With bin Ladin, Islam has become an individual project beyond the restrictions of the jurisprudence scholars or of political author
 ity; a project that this individual could carry with him to the port of Aden or Mombassa, or to the noise of Bangkok or New York.
	

Together these factors will increase the political power of Russian Muslims at a time when the country's population is rap
 idly declining-148 million in 1982 to an expected 130 million in 2015.
	

Alas, America's bin Laden has yet to emerge from its political-leadership desert.
	

In determining whether these attacks can be accurately described as complements to al-Qaeda political-warfare strat
 egy, it is worth noting that the attacks were carefully modulated in their destructiveness.
	

In their aftermath European populations, in particular, tended to blame their political leaders for stimulating the attacks by main
 taining pro-U.S.
	

Every American, of course, is and must remain free to think and speak 
209 
MARCHING TOWARD HELL 
 as they will, but Americans would do well to review their own history for lessons about how such consistently denigrating language can greatly worsen deep divisions over substantive political issues.
	

Complicating any chance of ameliorating this substantive confrontation, moreover, was a northern view of the South that, over the course of the antebellum years, took on the character of a wholesale den
 igration not only of the institution of slavery and southern political views but of the character, faith, lifestyle, and culture of southerners.
	

'Me want of national spirit, the rejection of political democracy, and the preference for slave labor were only a few of the many signs of social decadence:' Most of all northerners believed their southern countrymen were antimodern and determined to oppose and block societal progress.
	

On that day U.S. political leaders would be as bankrupt in terms of domestic support and empathy as they are today in terms of intellectual capacity and commonsense.
	

                                                     Foreign policy must 
246 
247 
MARCHING TOWARD HELL 
be changed to focus only on genuine national-security interests; nonessen
 tial political, diplomatic, and military intervention abroad.
	

And finally, a beginning must be made to return the American political system to the framework of respon
sible republican government crafted 
by 
 the Founders.
	

For Amer
 icans generally, the unavoidable conclusion is that their political leaders have bitten off overseas far more than the country can ever reasonably hope to chew.
	

But 
in 
 many cases it is foreigners who will decide when the United States goes to war, and to add insult to injury, today's political environment tends to label Americans who object to this reality as less than loyal.
	

                                                                                                                                                  This point is often very hard for Americans to see because U.S. pol
icy does help to maintain a superficially stable and orderly, if brutally authoritarian, political environment in much of the Muslim world, and because U.S. leaders never deign to tell them how much danger Washing
 ton's life-support program for Arab tyrannies has caused for U.S. security, and how much more pain for Americans is stored up for the future.
	

In 1936 Winston Churchill posed a question about whether the political and cultural inheritance of Britons was being protected; the same question can serve as an appropriate and hopefully haunting query for U.S. leaders who seem bent on squandering the heritage of Americans.

While some political historians have described this as a bailout, it was not directed toward any specific corporation or economic sector.
	

'The potential for political mischief really scared people,' one observer told Time magazine in a statement that sounded serious at the time but now seems quaint.
	

Industrial-Era Bailouts (1971-1995)   41 Let's use the Chrysler bailout as a hypothetical model of what might have happened in the event the government did not succumb to political pressure to bail out Chrysler.

Actually, many other people in New York, in its journalism and media community, in its political circles, are relieved too-the anemic Post is about to be rejuvenated.
	

Such as: He was once having sex with an (insert Norwegian heiress, 'Post cub reporter,' 'redheaded temptress,' 'political source' here) in a back alley on a cold winter's night when a snowplow ran over his foot and Dunleavy didn't notice.
	

These pages hew more closely to Murdoch's views than, perhaps, even those of any of his own publications (including the conservative political magazine the 
Weekly Standard, 
 which was launched with Murdoch funding in 1995, but is often more wonky than declarative).
	

                                                                                       Indeed, 
Rolling Stone 
founder and editor Jann Wenner meets Murdoch in 1974 and compliments him on the newly launched 
National Star, 
telling him he's especially impressed by the 
Star's 
 political column and is curious about its writer.

It's useful to look at the brain trust that's supplying him with much of his political intelligence during the vital Reagan
 Thatcher years: Woodrow Wyatt and Irwin Stelzer, both Murdoch foot soldiers competing for his attention.
	

And then too, in a kind of double political rever
 sal, there's the situation in Britain.
	

As a consequence, Bush's policy initiatives are frequently underdeveloped, leading to both sub
 stantive and political mistakes that could have been avoided, hurting his policies and political fortunes at the same time.
	

He lacked both Hub
 bard's government experience and political skills, which had partially compensated for the CEA's institutional weakness.
	

They also noted that the head of FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, was a political hack with no relevant expertise.
	

This was quite an extraordinary political achievement, but one that accom
 plished relatively little economically.
	

             He told 
73 
76 IMPOSTOR 
Daniel Altman of the 
NewYorkTimes, 
 'This just seems like a creature of political expediency or compromise.
	

It's not plausible to me that there's really an economic logic to the political policy that's being proposed.'
	

I recall being invited to a White House briefing where a political appointee from the Office of Management and Budget tried to sell this snow job to some conservative economists and being astonished at both

 the idiocy of the effort and its brazenness.
	

In short, 'He was quite prepared to sacrifice liberal trade principles whenever it suited his domestic political purposes.'
	

I would estimate that a deficit reduction package on the order of 2 percent of GDP-about $250 billion per year-will be necessary to get the attention of markets and show political resolve.
	

But it will be Bush's fault even if someone else ends up paying the political price.

So the thinking was that if Social Security could be fixed successfully, then it might create some political capital that could be used to reform Medicare.

As the owners began fore

40 • CmningofAge 
 When their political efforts failed, my parents made a sudden turn that was typical of the politics they had embraced, and suggested how abstract it was.
	

The scent of inquisition hovered in their political air.
	

Yet, who am I to judge myself in this matter? By leaving me in an all-day nursery and then going out every night to political meetings (as they did), my parents sent sig
 nals that may still be registering.
	

In my developing political imagination, the schoolyard was full of mute, inglorious Miltons, deprived of their chances for achievement by a sys
 tem that neglected or stunted them because it was concerned about profit alone.
	

                   I had followed Beichman's long career as a stalwart of the

anti-Communist right, and was curious to find out from him whether my fa
ther had used his teaching position to recruit students for his political agen
 das.
	

When political circumstances released them into the competitive arena of the prosperous Fifties, they were able to find far more lucrative and-in many cases-more fulfilling outlets for their abilities.
	

A campaign against America's decision to execute two Jews for their political beliefs-which was how the Party framed the case-would provide an opportunity for the Stalinists to neutralize this concern.
	

'Individualism' was, of course, the 
84 • Coming of Age 
 hated philosophy of their political adversaries.

Hayden's inner angst was given political shape by the radicals he encoun
 tered at the beginning of the Sixties.
	

In his autobiography, Reunion, he records how he came to Berkeley, which he calls 'the Mecca of student activism,' to get a political education two years before Port Huron.
	

'The Bay Area was radiating with a utopian spirit,' he writes, as though the activists he met were innocent of Stalinism rather than having grown up in its political crucible.
	

But the ac
 tion belonged to us and was driven by our self-conscious political agendas.
	

Among the protesters, we had the superior political experience and were able to provide convincing analyses that ex
 plained the social mysteries to those who joined us on impulse.
	

In preparing for political actions, we identified the correct political 'line,' and united behind it in a force that was able to over
 come most opposition.
	

Merely announcing the tribunal would be a political coup.
	

Scheer's instinct proved prescient once again when this became the Left's political style in the next decade.
	

As Fitch and I exchanged information about the political scenes in London and Berkeley, he twirled his red mustache with a nervous energy so intense it caused his pupils to flutter Like many radi
 cals, he was a self-exiled son of the middle class.
	

But the political Zeitgeist had shifted so dramatically toward the Marxist myth that it made us think you had a kind of insight that was important.'
	

  Abbie Hoffman, the Movement's resi
dent anarchist, had written a tract 
called Steal 
This Book, 
which promoted this 
188 • Revolutions 
 'political' strategy.
	

They would harbor political fugitives, train activists in weapons and 'self-defense,' oppose 'occupying police,' and put 'all imperialist institutions (universities, draft boards, corporations) in or near the Territory ...
	

Together they constitute a social crisis so perva
 sive and profound as to lift the prospect of revolution from the realm of utopian speculation and raise it as a real political alternative.
	

We believe such a revolution to be necessary For this reason we have opened the pages of the magazine to the thoughts of one of the country's most serious revolutionaries and to a book which we feel is one of the most important literary and political events of our time.
	

Later, he went on to found the Revolutionary Communist Party, and to be
 come its chairman for life, meticulously reproducing the political style of his Maoist icons.
	

Political education for the communards consisted of readings from The Black Panther and Lin Piao's On People's War Commune discussions focused on such questions as whether underwear should be shared, and if it was a bourgeois hang-up to close the bathroom door when using the toilet.
	

Whether he actually believed this or was just playing the political role he had assigned himself as a spokesman for Hanoi, I didn't know and never found out.
	

For me, the overriding justification was one that weighed heavily on all the political decisions I made: It was important that 
200 • Revolutions 
 America should lose the war.

 Elissa had no liking for Hayden or any of the other political friends who, on occasion, came to our house.
	

For me, the political combats were bracing, tapping as they did emotional memories of the dinner
 table arguments with my father in Sunnyside.
	

          After Ellen's murder, he told me that she had invited political ac
tivists and ex-prisoners to the house who seemed to have a potential for vio
 lence.
	

Charles Garry, the Patty lawyer, called a press confer
 ence to claim that 29th Street was a 'dormitory' for teachers at the Learning Center, and that the police had planted the weapons as part of their ongoing political repression of the Panthers.
	

Meanwhile, Elaine was appearing on college campuses with other leftists, making speeches about American fascism and denouncing the FBI's 'cointelpro' program to infiltrate and neutralize the Panthers solely because of their political beliefs.
	

He was praised as a returning hero by local political leaders, and invited to the state capital to receive an award for the work of the Learning Center.
	

                                                                     300

Under the pressure of these realities, I began to develop a political dys
 pepsia.
	

And many of his political connections remained.
	

After recounting to me his 
334 • Coming Home 
 life as a political terrorist and celebrity, Ayers summed up the arc of his career in an epigram: 'Guilty as hell, free as a bird-America is a great country.'
	

It was a response typical of the political activists I debated on the issue.
	

I was still in a state of withdrawal from the political arena, suspicious of my reactions and cautious not to let my politics become a mere reflex of personal bitterness or grief.
	

Becoming a leftist was 'like falling off a log,' he observed, 
358 • Coming Home 
 but the political forest was fraught with perils for conservatives.
	

But, for the Left, this was political warfare; professional norms did not apply.

 I attempted to sum up my political transformation in an 'open letter' to my old mentor, Ralph Miliband, with whom I had not had any contact for ten years.
	

                                                              Although there was no statistical evidence to prove it, I would estimate that many more aca
demic careers had been aborted for political reasons during these post-Sixties decades than during the entire Communist 'witch-hunt' of the McCarthy pe-

 riod.
	

This turned out to be a rally of leftists claiming that 'political correctness' was something invented by right-wing witch-hunters.
	

Such resources, of course, were not available to us, had we been willing to draw on them, or to anyone else on our side of the political and cultural argument.

 Scheer became a 'political adviser' to celebrities like Jane Fonda and Barbra Streisand, helping them with their speeches to Harvard students and other 'serious' audiences.

Most important, a substantial intellectual debt is owed to my teacher and friend, Charles R. Kesler, who first showed me the impor
 tance of Wilson to the American political tradition, and whose articles on the topic have substantially influenced my own research.
	

                                   The historical view, in general, rejected the possibility of transcending the historical environment in order to grasp uni
versal political principles; instead, politics had to be guided by the spirit of the current historical age, and political change was to be grounded in evolu
 tion from one historical spirit to the next.
	

                                                                                                                    I

would read the heart of political 
practice, 
letting political theory wait on that practice and carry weight only in proportion to its nearness to what has been ac
 tually accomplished.
	

He did not believe that Bagehot's evolutionary theory pro
 vided a sufficient model for political change.
	

                                                                                                                                                   Link contrasts Wilson to the more

aggressive elements of the progressive movement, characterizing the early years of the Wilson presidency as an attempt to defend the New Freedom against these more liberal elements9
5
 However, the more Link wrote on Wil
 son the more he saw him as a progressive, and the first-time publication of many of Wilson's political writings in Link's sixty-nine-volume collection of Wilson's papers seems to indicate this shift.
	

                                                                                                                                                        As Wil
son said in an explication that is worth quoting at length, men in politics are confined to adaptation, working within the confines of their particular histor
ical environment, unable to transcend it: 
From the dim morning hours 
of 
history when the father was king and priest down to this modern time 
of 
history's high noon when nations stand forth full
grown and self-governed, the law 
of 
coherence and continuity in political de
 velopment has suffered no serious breach.
	

'zs Problems in American government, consequently, result from a reticence to adjust our political principles to the new spirit that history is bringing forth.
	

In the political realm, this led him to attack individualistic conceptions of fights
 or any concept like the social compact that emphasized a distinction between the sphere of the state and the sphere of the individual.
	

                                              Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science 




 The previous chapter detailed Wilson's criticism of the social compact and the abstract theory of rights upon which it is based' In making his critique, Wilson seems to sound certain themes of classical democratic theory.
	

Human thought and action are conditioned by their historical environment, and the ancient notion of states
manship makes the mistake of assuming that great individuals can transcend 
67 
68   Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science   69 
 that environment.
	

Wilson was also critical of the Aristotelian cycle of regimes, and he wished 'to contrast the later facts of political development with this ancient exposi
 tion.'
	

In early essays such as 'The Art of Governing,' Wilson commented that history points to the development of a single kind of 
70   Chapter Two 
The Modem Democratic State and the New Political Science   71 
 government.'
	

                                                            Wilson's essay 'De
mocracy' explicates the distinction between rule by majority opinion and rule 
72   Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science   73 
 by the implicit, objective will of society.
	

The best government, after all, is simply the one that reflects the 
74   Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science   75 
 historically conditioned will of a particular society.
	

                                                                        Wil
son made this point by characterizing government as the mere instrument of 
76 
Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science   77 
 society's common will.
	

                                                                                                                                         78   Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science   79 
Even political liberties and privileges, Wilson asserted, are not immune from the exercise of state power if the will of the people in a particular age en
 dorses state action.
	

The first is that Wilson saw his progressivism as the only viable 
80 
Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science   81 
 alternative to socialism.
	

Both socialism and Wilson's progressivism found the traditional American political order outdated and unable to handle the new social and economic problems of contemporary times.
	

                                                   The inference is strengthened in the essay by the character the 'democrat,' who says to the 'socialist': 
82   Chapter Two 
The Modem Democratic State and the New Political Science   83 
You know it is my principle, no less than yours, that every man shall have an equal chance with every other man: if 1 saw my way to it as a practical politi
 cian, 1 should be willing to go farther and superintend every man's use of his chance.
	

                                                                                                                                                To society 
84   Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science   85 
alone can the power of dominating by combination belong: and society cannot suffer any of its members to enjoy such a power for their own private gain inde
pendently 
of 
its own strict regulation and oversight et 
 Private development, then, must be under the control of the state.'
	

                           It is this assertion, for instance, 
86 
Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science   87 
 that underlies Wilson's numerous writings on administration, where he argues that we can borrow administrative models from nations like Prussia in spite of the obvious constitutional differences.
	

Easton's account of liberal realism makes clear that Bagehot rejected this 
88 
Chapter Two 
The Modern Dentocratic State and the New Political Science   89 
 kind of thinking.
	

Wilson's historical thinking, therefore, while certainly em
 bracing a realist methodology in political science, also owes much to German thinkers like Hegel and their study of the state.'
	

                                              90   Chapter Two 
The Modern Democratic State and the New Political Science   91 
 The development of specialized disciplines within the social sciences took place during a time when German influence on American institutions of higher learning was at its height.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Crick notes that 
92   Chapter 7Wo 
The Modem Democratic State and the New Political Science   93 
Wilson's more value-laden, even religiously oriented, empiricism is bypassed by the more strictly scientific and amoral pragmatism of William James, John Dewey, and others-' As we will see in chapter 7, Wilson's science of admin
istration also comes under heavy criticism by subsequent theorists, who con
 sider it insufficiently value free.
	

Beginning in the late 1860s, the traditional view was challenged by reformers who wanted 
94 
Chapter Two 
The Modem Democratic State and the New Political Science   95 
 a more practical or vocational orientation.
	

They opposed elective cur
 ricula, and were very much concerned with connecting the university with service to the political world.
	

Portions of my presentation of Wilson's state theory are drawn from my chapter 'Woodrow Wilson, the Organic State, and American Republicanism,' in History ofAmer
 ican Political Thought, ed.
	

                                                            96

This new condition also laid the groundwork for significant transformation of American political institutions.
	

                                                                                                                                                                 In his 
New Freedom 
campaign, Wilson asked rhetorically what the attitude of progressives ought to be toward the symbols of the founding political order-especially toward the Constitution 
1114 
Chapter Three 
Beyond the Separation of Powers   105 
 and the individualistic understanding of it that dominated the founding era.
	

It steadily retained the same organization, the same opinions, and the same political principles throughout all the period of seventy-two years that stretched from the establishment of the federal government to the opening of the war for its preservation.'
	

                                     Wilson's argument that the country 
112   Chapter Three 
Beyond the Separation of Powers   113 
had progressed into a nation as a consequence of the Civil War and Recon
 struction laid the groundwork for his political writings.
	

The framers committed the great sin of taking Montesquieu's political ideas out of historical context.
	

Congress is supreme in the American political order, yet, Wilson lamented, there is no real leadership in Congress; there is, therefore, no real leadership for 
top   
Chapter Four 
Congress as Parliament?   141 
 the nation itself.
	

               163 
164   Chapter Five 
 This realization led to a second and somewhat different form of institutional political science, one that turned to the popular leadership of the president, with the assistance of a reconstituted party system and judiciary.
	

                                                                                                                                       As Wilson elaborated: 
There is another course which the President may follow, and which one or two Presidents of unusual political sagacity have followed, with the satisfactory re
 sults that were to have been expected.
	

                                                                                                                                                          Wilson contrasted the president's duties as 'legal exec
utive' to his 'political powers,' advocating an emphasis on the latter as a means of using popular opinion to transcend the rigid separation-of-powers structure of the old 'Newtonian' constitutional framework'
6
  As opposed to remaining confined to the constitutionally defined powers and duties of his own branch, the president's role as popular leader means that he must, as the embodiment of the national will, coordinate and move Congress and the other parts of government.
	

      Wilson's practice of executive governance, in other words, largely corre
sponded to the doctrine he had developed in his writings, that the political 
172 
arm of government needed strong leadership and that the president, as the em
bodiment of the historically conditioned will of the people, should use his po
 sition to direct a wide range of national political action.
	

He suggests that we must have one or the other, that we cannot have both, and that Wilson devel
 ops the former at the expense of the latter~z To the extent that the president's executive powers are defined in such narrow terms, it is no doubt the case that they are weakened by Wilson's emphasis on the president's political powers.
	

That exterior organization is the political party.'
	

     Wilson easily conceded that his ac
count gave the judiciary an explicitly 
political 
character-it must be so in or
 der to read from the current spirit the needs of the nation.
	

'It is true,' Wilson admitted of the courts, 'that their power is political; that if they had interpreted the Constitution in its strict letter, as some proposed, and not in its spirit ...

So who is it that governs? Is it the people, whom a strong president dependent upon their will would seem to empower, or is it the bureaucratic experts, who are shielded from the meddling of politics and public opinion as they carry out the business of ad
ministration? The answer seems to lie in an important characteristic of Wil
 son's thought and in much of progressivism: the rhetoric is intensely popular and democratic, yet the reality of the argument is to put political power in the hands of governing elites who possess advanced knowledge of the spirit of the age and the course of history.
	

                                                                                                                                                      Each 
of 
these sides will be treated in the next two chapters: chapter 7 will address the extent to which the influence of public opinion is weakened by the ceding 
of 
significant gov
erning authority to an unelected bureaucracy; the current chapter will address the politics side 
of 
 the divide, posing the question of how democratic Wilson's political vision actually is.
	

The president, who is to lead the political arm of government, is a force that will see to it that the government adapts to the spirit of the times and the interests of the current age.
	

It was the job 
 of political leadership to discern it, and to educate, form, and guide public opinion in accord with the leadership's own vision of the public's true will.
	

This is a central irony in Wilson's political thinking: while his rhetoric pushed for a popularization of the American system of governance, Wilson did not maintain a terribly high opinion of the people themselves.
	

Hence, his calls for popularizing the 'politics' half of the politics-administration dichotomy rely heavily on the ability of leadership to educate and move the public through political rhetoric.
	

He had always sympathized with the ability of parliamentary systems to change political leadership at the point when the leadership had lost the support of public opinion.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                               While it is the case that Wilson 
221 
222   Chapter Seven 
Wilson's Science of Administration 
223 
changed his mind on the question of which institution-Congress or the presidency-was to serve as the focus of national political leadership, Wilson consistently maintained that Congress had to abandon its traditional legisla
 tive functions.
	

This shift in responsibility for policymaking from a political institu
 tion to an administrative one is fundamental to Wilson's writings on the science of administration.
	

Our energies must, there
 fore, be directed to the particular administrative means necessary to achieve the political ends that have now been settled by history.
	

Wilson remained, instead, consistent in his contention that administrators must be insulated from political influence in order to make decisions that reflect the general interest.

But given Wilson's lifelong embrace of progressive principles, it seems more accurate to 
262 
understand the 1912 New Freedom campaign as an anomaly~z Wilson did in
 deed act in the face of political expediency, but the political expediency was the need, in 1912, to downplay the progressivism to which he had long subscribed.
	

For Wilson, any reference to abstract political ideas was fundamentally dangerous and revolutionary.
	

So for Wilson, conservatism meant embracing continuous change in the political order-but it was to be gradual, evolutionary change' 
 It is ironic that today many conservatives, like Wilson, look to Burke as a guiding figure in their political thinking.
	

    The autocracy that crowned the summit of her political structure, long as it had stood and terrible as was the reality of its power, was not in fact Russian in origin, character, or purpose 5

As was the case with his 1901 remarks on the history of colonial America, Wilson here endorsed democratic 'revolution' as the arrival of something for which the time was ripe-as history matching 
up 
 democratic government with the right set of conditions.

As the United States increases its prison population (in 2005 it was over two million), it isolates especially young minor

A political argument for or against population growth necessi

Faced with the compelling issue of what constitutes bona fide social change and the need for establishing some political programs and agendas for change (universalities), this position argues for the contingent nature of political agen
das; that is, given historical conditions and diverse peoples, at best, we can only establish tentative platforms that can be the bases of focused attempts at

However, as the civil rights era clearly shows, no mainstream political official was pushing for the sorts of changes demanded by these movements.
	

'There are undoubtedly times when countries may have to sacrifice legal principles in the name of political prag

As Zapatista Subcomandant Marcos says, 'the result will not be the triumph of a party, organization, or alliance of organizations with their particular social programs, but rather the creation of a democratic space for resolving the confrontations between different political proposals' (Burbach 2001, 135).

Voters 
 Economic decisions and political decisions are made in different ways, even when the same person makes both kinds of decisions, for example as a consumer and as a voter.
	

The voter's political decisions involve having a minute influence on policies which 
affect 
 many other people, while economic decision-making is about having a major effect on one's own personal well-being.
	

Political thinking tends to conceive of policies, institutions, or programs 
in 
terms of their

Yet such choices were verfectlv rational from

A more fundamental question is whether political goals shall be judged by how attractive they sound or by how much must be sacrificed to achieve them.
	

However, it may be if political risk is the criterion.
	

Here, as elsewhere, the incentives facing political decision-makers are very different from the incentives facing economic decision-makers.
	

Private insurance companies must either charge enough to cover the cost of dangerous situations or impose requirements to reduce those dangers, while political decision-makers can base their decisions on what will make them look compassionate- and hence more re-electable-while leaving the costs

Whatever the political reasons for these restrictions, the economic consequence has been to make banking more risky.
	

                                   Such views- and the condescending and peremptory tone in which they were expressed

have become fairly typical of elite opinion across the political spectrum, from liberal or radical publications like

These include situations where the more fortunate group is a minority with no institutional or political power over the majority.
	

The charge that the government of India was reluctant to accept international help in response to the cyclone which struck the country in 1999, for political reasons, was made in India's own media and was reported on page 46 of

 edited by Tibor R. Machan.
	

The Russian government's similar reluctance, for political reasons, to accept international help in rescuing men trapped in one of its submarines- and its later acceptance of such aid with a second submarine in the wake of outcries from the Russian public over the deaths of the men in the first submarine- was reported in a story beginning on the front page of the 
New York Times 
 of August 7, 2005 under the headline: 'All 7 Men Alive as Russian Submarine Is Raised.'

Where it becomes neces
 sary in performing this function of a university, to consider political, social, or sectarian movements, they are dissected and examined, not taught, and the conclusion left, with no tipping of the scales, to the logic of the facts....
	

I was particularly troubled by the increasingly intol
 erant atmosphere of the schools I visited and by the relentless intrusion of political agendas into an academic environment where they did not belong.
	

Unlike previous attempts to interfere with disinterested inquiry, the new political assault comes from faculty insiders who regard their scholarship as a partisan activity and the university as a platform from which they hope to change the world.
	

For academic radicals who hope to 'change the world,' teaching is not a dis
 interested intellectual inquiry but a form of political combat.
	

                           Thus an administrative attempt to 
remove 
politics from the curriculum would be opposed by faculty radi
cals as itself a political intervention 
into 
 the curriculum.
	

                                                                                                              Academic Freedom   
g 
could be framed as 'political:' As their campaign against the Aca
demic Bill of Rights showed, leftists were adept at doing just that when their own agendas-which, of course, were intensely polit
 ical-were blocked.
	

In fact, far from being secret, my meeting with the governor took place in his office, while my breakfast with the legislators was held at the Brown Palace Hotel, perhaps the most famous venue and favorite 
to 
 meeting place for Denver's political elites.
	

                                               Academic Freedom   
13 
critical distinction between academic discourse and political pros
 elytizing with particular clarity: 'Any idea can be brought into the classroom if the point is to inquire into its structure, history, influence and so forth.
	

What educational value was served by protesting a speech on academic freedom before it was delivered? Why not listen to the speaker and then respond? Why not organize a debate? The Democrats' protest was just one more indication of how the pub
lic forums at universities like Penn State had become more akin to political battlegrounds than to neutral and intellectually invit
ing settings where ideas are examined and evaluated in an aca
 demic manner.
	

he did not allow his political views to intrude into his lessons.
	

The term 'smear' or 'smear campaign' does appear in my book-four times-but every one of these references is to a

Apparently he regarded our academic discussion as political war, which I did not.

 Once again, this is the program of a political party or of a training school for political party activists.
	

As the online syllabus makes clear, Social Work Sio is virtually a chapter-by

That is why academic freedom

Apparently it was fine to bring in a political rad

         FOR'S R 
POLITICAL SKILL, 
 For many people today, Franklin D. Roosevelt is still an American icon.
	

He was at
 tractive, a good speaker, a clever politician, and well connected-all of which he used to launch his political career.
	

                                                                                                                          But he contin
ued his political career from his wheelchair and thereafter he won six elections, two as governor of New York and four as president of

 the United States.
	

But only Roosevelt was winning tough political races and consulting with the president.'
	

                              He peppered his speeches with at
tacks on businessmen: '5,000 men in effect control American in
 dustry,' Roosevelt told a Boston audience, and'some of these 5,000 men who control industry are today invading the sacred political rights of those over whom they have economic power.'
	

Gore would never again win election to political office in Okla
 homa.
	

He said that he wanted this for judicial and political reasons.

 'My father,' Elliott Roosevelt observed of his famous parent, 'may have been the originator of the concept of employing the IRS as a weapon of political retribution.'
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              During the 
1930s, 
FDR began experi
menting with the Bureau of Internal Revenue (later renamed the Internal Revenue Service, or IRS), which had earlier been placed under the Treasury Department, as a means of attacking political enemies and generating more revenue for his New Deal pro
 grams.'
	

That response spoke vol
 umes about where the political influence in Missouri was located and which party held it.
	

His wealth alone made him a tempting candidate for 
 an IRS audit, but his political actions during the 19201 made him an irresistible target.
	

                    The goal was removing Moses from the scene so that he could cause no further political trouble,' With Annenberg going to jail in 1940, the 
Pbiladelphia Inquirer 
became less strident; Roosevelt had an easier time carrying Pennsylvania to win reelection; and the treasury had $8 million more to spend on New Deal programs 
41 
 Auditing Mellon and sending Annenberg to prison fulfilled Roosevelt's larger goal of scaring rich Americans into sending the government more of their money.
	

                                       Also, much of Roosevelts

 ular causes: jailing those who disobeyed the NRA, hiking income and excise taxes, packing the Supreme Court, and purging those Democrats who tried to oppose his centralization of political power.
	

of 53 and 90 seats the two previous elections-and that the coun
 try still had 22 percent unemployment showed that America was in a new political universe, and that patronage politics would be a major part of this new political world.'
	

Even with Roosevelt's masterful use of patronage, he still faced political problems because his programs were expensive and unem
 ployment was still high.
	

In 1935, there were a few political contests, a couple of House vacancies for example, and Roosevelt began to suffer some defeats.'
	

For example, Landon thundered 
a
 gainst 'public money for political purposes' before a cheering crowd at Madison Square Garden.
	

Through patronage and political success, Roosevelt al
 ready was exerting unprecedented leverage over Congress.
	

               FDR,$T~ 
COURT PACKING, THE PQj 
 February 5, 1937, started as a normal day in American political life.
	

The WPA, one New Deal agency at least, would, starting in 1939, have to sit on the political sidelines.
	

Beard, however, is referring to trained historians and political scientists with Ph.D.s.
	

These scholars tend strongly to support the legend of the New Deal, that it was a very constructive political and economic program for the United States.

Madison then both acknowledged the supposedly modern insight that the national economy is interconnected and rejected this as a basis for a latitudinarian interpretation of 'necessary': 
In the great system of political economy, having for its general object the na
tional welfare, 
everything is related immediately or remotely to every other thing; 
 and, consequently, a power over any one thing, if not limited by some obvious and precise affinity, may amount to a power over every other thing.

THE 
PROGRESSIVE ERA: DUE PROCESS AND

The last decades of the nineteenth century witnessed the growth of social

The roots of this political sea change are com
 plex and I shall not offer a definitive account of them here.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       230 • Chapter Nine 
Thus, in Footnote Four we have enunciated the modern theory of consti
tutional rights that, by 1941, was to apply to both state and federal restric
tions on liberty: Adopt a loose conception of necessity and presume all acts of legislatures to be valid, except when an enumerated right listed in the Bill of Rights is infringed (or when legislation affects the political process or discrete and insular minorities 
),14 
 in which event the Court will employ a strict conception of necessity and put the burden on legislatures to show that their actions were both necessary and proper.

Its support was entirely predictable, since the NWSA is itself a political organization whose formal constitution lays out its agendas in blunt fashion: 
Women's Studies owes its existence to the movement for the lib
 eration of women; the feminist movement exists because women are oppressed.
	

                                                                                                          Because the university trained jour

INSTRUCTOR: 
Sherman A. James, Professor of Public Policy Studies and Professor of Center for Health Policy 
Presented as a course in public policy, the class is in fact a political at
tack on globalization-the spread of free-market economies and lib
 eralized trade-and on America's largely private health-care policies.
	

On the subject of U.S. foreign policy, the course assigns feminist philosopher Judith Butler rather than a political scientist or an academic trained in international relations; Butler's essay claims 
39 
40 
that the 1991 Gulf War to repel Iraq's invasion of Kuwait was actu
 ally an imperialist and racist attack on the Arab 'other.
	

The knowledge of 'women's activism and resistance to oppression' is the statement of a political agenda, not an academic program.
	

                                                                                                                                                       Throughout the semester, we will survey a num
ber of different types of queer writing-including history, theory, coming out stories, journalism, political activism, and academic research-and will use this writing to generate thoughtful discus
 sion and analysis of queer rhetorical contexts and to help us develop our own voices as writers.'

 Plainly, the authors believe that 
66   
ONE-PARTY CLASSROOM 
 it is this 'political and ideological' purpose that science education should serve.
	

Citing the influence of Maxine Green, who argues that political activism is a proper role for an educator, the center states that 'folne of its primary purposes' is 'to capacitate learners 
68 
 to take action in the larger society.'
	

In plain English, the center is more concerned with turning out committed political agitators than with producing able teachers.
	

The authors do not address the fact that some conflicts do not lend themselves to peaceful solutions, and that the goal of education 
70 
 is not to promote their own distinctive political ideologies.
	

The fact that he is nonetheless free to engage in scarcely camouflaged political advocacy 
74   
ONE-PARTY CLASSROOM 
 is another indication of the extent of the intellectual corruption in this particular department.
	

                                                                                               To ensure that they will arrive at pre
determined political conclusions, students are asked to consider a se
ries of leading questions, such as: 
76 
A proper academic course would pursue the question of 
whether 
there exists 'structural racism' in a society whose laws and Consti
tution prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, but Marable 's class takes 'structural racism' as an unquestioned point of depar
 ture.
	

That the course promotes one-sided political views and racist attitudes is objectionable enough; even worse, the students' grades depend on the extent to which they embrace its party line, which is a violation of their academic freedom.
	

                                                                                                                                78

 To assume that there is a 'prison industrial complex' in America is already a political rather than a scholarly statement.

Even more stridently political is the tone of another assigned text, 
Feminist Theory from Margin to Center, 
 by the radical bell hooks (the lower case is hooks's whimsy).
	

                                                      Still, given 
88 
Columbia's weak response even when its faculty's radicalism has gen
 erated national controversy, the school seems destined to be plagued by professors who recklessly pursue political agendas in the classroom.
	

This is an appropriate invitation to join a political party, not an intellectual discussion.
	

But Women's Studies 003 shows that even a subject 
102 
 with no obvious connection to politics can become a canvas for the political agendas of activists posing as academics.
	

As noted, 'social justice' is not an academic concept but a politically loaded code; there is in fact no societal consensus about how justice is best achieved, and the term itself is historically associated with only one set of beliefs-those of the political Left.

Gender Oppression: The Political Science Department 
V. Spike Peterson has an impressive academic resume: a full professor of Political Science, she has been awarded a Fulbright scholarship, a writing and research grant by the MacArthur Foundation, and a fel
 lowship from the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy.
	

But on digging deeper into her record, one finds that her teaching doubles as indoctrination in the extreme political viewpoints she endorses.
	

A troika of courses she teaches through Arizona's Political Science De
 partment reveals her radical ambitions.
	

                                                          It notes that her teaching interests are 'Race, Gender and Social 
150   
ONE-PARTY CLASSROOM 
Protests, Race, Gender & Justice, Theories of Development, Com
munity Research, Feminist Methodology, and Radical Political Thought,' while her research interests include 'Black Conscious
 ness, Race, Gender & Global Cities, Black capitalism, and Women of Color & Feminist Epistemology.'
	

                                                                                                                                                    Her course description reads as follows: 
In this course, we will investigate concepts, theories, and cases that sought to illuminate protest as a social and historical phenomenon, and which sprung countless policy changes, social 
152

 reforms, and even economic and political revolutions.
	

But as a list of topics discussed in the course demonstrates, it is actually a radi
 cal critique of capitalism and globalization, and its methodology is primarily political.

INSTRUCTOR: Kristin Koptiuch 
 An equally blunt example of political activism is provided by the course 'Im/Migration & Culture' in Arizona State's Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
	

This course purports to draw on 'empirical research' in order to provide an expansive survey of the social, economic, and political aspects of immigration.
	

As the Political Science Depart
 ment chairman explains, 'One of the main problems in studying Karl Marx is that most contemporary theorists interpret Marx in their way-the point is to interpret Marx in his way.'
	

It concentrated on 'Nietzsche's political thinking, his views on religion, his relation to feminism and the critique of gender, his growing impact on race and postcolonial studies, and his ongoing contributions to French post-structural thought.'
	

At no point has the institute included aca
 demics whose views on racial, social, or political issues do not accord with those of Professor Gordon.

Another 'discussion paper' coauthored by Dutton is devoted en
 tirely to the idea of political activism.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                       Titled 'The Futures of Com
munity Organizing: The Need for a New Political Imaginary,' the piece states, 'Political analysis and practice are always linked, and a limited analysis will limit possibilities for action, but also for politi
 cal imagination as well.'
	

The program thus ignores the dominant schools of thought in political science and international relations studies, in which scholars emphasize that conflicts are caused not by 'social injustice' but by the actions of states within a harsh environ
 ment of international anarchy.
	

He argues that 'the frenetic pace of global capitalism, as promoted by economic and political elites in the United States and like nations, is tantamount to war against the earth and the vast majority of its inhabitants.'

INSTRUCTOR: Joseph Hawkins, Lecturer in the Department of Anthropology 
 As its catalogue description makes abundantly clear, this is a course in political activism.
	

The Standing Orders of the Regents, passed in September 2005, make unmistakably clear that political indoctrination and partisan interest have no place in the university curriculum and that the regents are obligated to maintain its standards: 
 [The Regents) are responsible to see that the University remain aloof from politics and never function as an instrument for the advance of partisan interest.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Misuse of the classroom by, for ex
ample, allowing it to be used for political indoctrination, for purposes other than those for which the course was constituted, or for providing grades without commensurate and appropriate student achievement, constitutes misuse of the University as an institutions 
In the liberal arts programs of the University of Santa Cruz, how
ever, the violation of this policy and the consequent abuse of the in
 stitution and its students is a routine fact of academic life.
	

There is nothing scholarly in this blithe dismissal of critics; it is a political stump speech that reflects the tenor of this course.

INSTRUCTOR: Ronnie Lipschutz, Professor of Politics 
 Described as a survey of the 'political thought and practice' of the environmentalist movement, this is a course in how to think like an environmental leftist.
	

The stated intent of the program is to have students see the United States through a theoretical framework of 'racial, ethnic, gender, sexual, class, and re
gional dynamics'-that is, through an ideological prism con
 structed by the political Left.
	

                         Courses offered are rooted largely in instructions in identity politics and political activism, expose stu
dents to polemical indictments of American society, and introduce them to radical organizations they might join to advance the agen
 das of the Left.
	

In the new dispensation, political control of a discipline is the sole basis for es
 tablishing 'truth,' which closes off critical debate.
	

                                                                             At the University of California Santa Cruz, the Women's Studies De
partment has dropped all pretense of being a scholarly discipline and has renamed itself the Department of Feminist Studies to signify that it 
284   
ONE-PARTY CLASSROOM 
 is a political training facility.
	

As the case studies in this book show, literally thousands of university courses have be
 come forums for professors to advance their own extremist political agendas.

trol is necessary for freedom to thrive, and at what point does control by 
SAVING FREEDOM 
government destroy freedom? If this were the primary point of contention in political debates, all governments would be moving to find the opti
 mum balance between freedom and control.
	

         Freedom's meaning has been cheapened by political rhetoric that sug
gests moral license, entitlement, equality of outcomes, and a lack of respon
 sibility and discipline.
	

           The federal government is increasingly dysfunctional because con
gressmen and senators are focusing on their own priorities and the special 
SAVING FREEDOM 
 interests of major political groups rather than the good of the nation.
	

The more lobbyists are hired, the more politics will be dominated by the political contributions of the lobbyists and their employers.

Pastors, who from colonial days played an important role in guiding America's political process, have been muzzled by legislation that threatens to take away the tax-exempt status of churches.
	

These same socialist-leaning ideas and plans have been adopted by many of America's political and academic elites.
	

Therefore this plan, to the greatest extent possible, builds on the initiative of individual Americans, exercised responsibly in a free economy and a democratic political system.
	

There are many other important policy improvement ideas, but it is important that freedom fighters focus on a few bold, feasible ideas in the current political environment.
	

The Founders' Second Amendment 
 THE INDEPENDENT INSTITUTE is a non-profit, non-partisan, scholarly research and educational organization that sponsors comprehensive studies oftbe political economy of critical social and economic issues.
	

These immortal words of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson and signed by the members of the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, expressed a political philosophy based on the right of the people to assert and reclaim their own sovereignty over an oppressive government.'
	

Underlying this political theory was the notion that individuals had a right to keep and bear arms, and 
OF REVOLUTION AND RIGHTS 
 that these arms could rightly be used to throw off despotism when the decision to do so attained widespread recognition as legitimate.
	

is the foundation on which the whole political fabric is reared.''
	

                                                                                                                                             Indeed, unable to antici
pate developments in later epochs, Hamilton wrote that the federal Constitu
tion 'is merely intended to regulate the general political interests of the nation, than to a constitution which has the regulation of every species of personal and 
183 
184 
 private concerns.'
	

                  The following

The above referred to Nathaniel Bacon's compilation of works by John Selden, An 
Historical and Political Discourse of the Laws and Government of England, 
 which the Crown would ban.
	

With those experiences as a backdrop, the focus of this conclusion is: What does the Second Amendment's text actually say? 

THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE 
 The Second Amendment begins with a clause declaring a political principle about the militia, followed by a clause declaring a substantive right.
	

Thus when we say, the state has made provision for the paupers, the word has reference to the government, or

 Thus, 'the States of America' refers to the political units known as states.

                                                                      In many circles, especially among the learned elites of our universi
ties and law schools-those who teach the next generation, shape our popular culture, and set the terms of our political discourse-the self
 evident truths upon which America depends have been supplanted by the passionately held belief that no such truths exist, certainly no truths applicable to all time.
	

On both the Left and the Right, our political leaders are increas
 ingly unsure of their way, speaking in inspiring generalities, all the while mired in small-minded politics and petty debates.
	

'Boys are constantly repeating the declamations of Demosthenes and Cicero, or debates upon some political question in the British Parliament.'
	

                                                                      'The Relative Influence of European Writers on Late Eigh
teenth-Century American Political Thought' by Donald Lutz and Charles Hyneman, can be found in the American Political Science 
Review 
 (1984).

 we must proceed in a way that gives everyone as much as possible an equal say in how political rule is formed and operates.
	

But it does create a practical solu
 tion-after thousands of years of failed attempts-at the level of politics and political morality.'
	

Which is to say that the Constitution is an inherently political document, not in 
99 
100 
the narrow partisan meaning of the word but in the larger sense of shap
 ing the conditions of political self-governance and our way of life.
	

Legal restrictions and political obligations are important but, in the end, political actors within the constitutional order must give complete loyalty to, and solemnly pledge to support, the Constitution of the United States.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                       We 
STILL HOLD THESE TROTHS 
At key moments, under unusual circumstances, the amendment process expands our constitutional discourse beyond the courts and our political institutions to engage the American people in national deliber

 ations about core principles and fundamental questions, and in so doing invokes their sovereign authority, through the extraordinary process of constitutional lawmaking, to settle the issue at hand.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                        136 
The Founders understood self-government in the twofold sense of political self-government, in which we govern ourselves as a political community, and of moral self-government, according to which each indi

 vidual is responsible for governing himself.
	

The Founders were deeply concerned not only with the structures of limited constitutional government but also with the public virtues and civic hab
 its needed to maintain the capacity for political self-government.
	

Decentralized political life was necessary 'to multiply infinitely the occasions for citizens to act together and to make them feel every day that they depend on one another.'
	

Divisions on foreign policy were the catalyst that led to the establishment of the first political parties.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             While America had, 'or instance, an immediate interest at the time of the founding in pre
venting entanglement in Europe's wars, and has a permanent interest in not becoming embroiled in other nation's political quarrels, the country has always had a paramount interest in preventing (and a willingness o ally with other nations to prevent) a hostile power from dominating he European continent, since such a power would potentially threaten the freedom and very existence of the United States as an independent

It was, noted Hamilton in 
Federalist 
 6, 'time to awake from the deceitful dream of a golden age, and to adopt as a practical maxim for the direction of our political conduct that we, as well as the other inhabitants of the globe, are yet remote from the happy empire of perfect wisdom and perfect virtue.'
	

What resulted was a broad intellectual, social, and political movement that for the first time self-consciously aimed at fundamentally transforming the principles and practices of American constitutionalism.
	

'In speak
 ing of natural rights, therefore, it is essential to remember that these alleged rights have no political force whatsoever, unless recognized and enforced by the state,' wrote Charles Merriam.

Nothing could touch him: not claims that he had taken party political donations for business favors, not his grotesque mishandling of a serious Foot and Mouth outbreak, not the lamentable folly of the Millennium Dome, not the venality and incompetence of his ministers, not his chancellor Gordon Brown's growing taxes, not his baffling failure to achieve a single one of his targets on welfare reform, hospital waiting lists (yeah that's right: and you wonder why Britain comes so low in international cancer survival rate league tables?), or child literacy.

Between the Fed's credit creation and the mandates of political 
24   THE DOLLAR MELTDOWN 
 regulators, a disaster was in the making.
	

Walker's answer at least helped to dispel the idea that leadership and direction can be expected from the political class.
	

Conversely, when gold and silver have been abandoned, serious economic and political consequences result.
	

Did educated and sophisticated German central bankers and monetary officials really not know what they were doing when they ran the printing presses day and night, or when they saw that shops had to close at lunchtime each day just to re-price their inventories? Did they think the destruction of the German middle class would be a good thing? That chaos and the alien
 ation of people throughout Germany would be without consequences? Were there some who believed the aftermath of the inflation would provide an environment for a desirable political and cultural change? That a big dose of national socialism was a prescription for a healthy and wholesome country? Perhaps some did.
	

When was the last time a Fed official lost his job, had to give back his salary, incurred huge personal loses, or paid penalties for being wrong? 

The By-products of Inflation 
If the sheer amount of wealth confiscated from Americans by the Fed
 eral Reserve isn't bad enough, the Fed's sins are compounded by the corruption of our political system, the illicit transfer of wealth it makes possible, and the wars that it enables.
	

And I pray that Congress will resist the temptation to hinder the Fed
eral Reserve's independence and instead allow us to imple
 ment policy unencumbered by political exigency.
	

Because Nixon was afraid of political reaction to 
126   THE DOLLAR MELTDOWN 
 the creation of price inspectors crawling under the tables and peering from behind curtains at every American business transaction, he styled the mandatory price controls as 'voluntary.'
	

Ideologically it belongs in the same class with political constitutions and bills of rights.

Source: Center for Politics 
So what does the 2008 political map add to our understanding of the pres
idential election? Just compare it to the 2004 Bush-Kerry map, which shows the close division of that election, with Republican and Democratic territory fairly even and regionally polarized-with Ohio as the standout, decisive

New political eras take several elections to validate.
	

Years later, Ayers had become a distinguished professor in the Department of Education at the University of Illinois campus in Chicago where he served on several local community boards, regularly con
 sulted with prominent political leaders, and came to know Barack Obama.
	

But most political observers never considered West Virginia to be a battleground state in 2008.
	

Political scientists have long known that challengers need not out-raise incumbents in order to defeat them, as long as they can amass sums sufficient to mount an effective campaign.
	

Moreover, from a political perspective, the 2008 election outcomes (com
 bined with the results in 2010) will play a critical role in determining which party gains the upper hand in the upcoming decennial redistricting process.
	

                                             In this way, the Internet facil
itates the making of political contributions separate and apart from public

interest in presidential races, which may partially account for the record
 breaking amounts of money that presidential candidates have raised in recent years.
	

As political journalist John McQuaid observed, 'Because of tradition, inertia and command of the largest, most diverse audi
 ences, the mainstream media still drive the campaign bus with the same old road map' (2008: 44).
	

By touching the map, political correspondent John King could display statistics, move battleground states in and out of candidates' camps, and compare campaigns' movements across the country.
	

Sometimes, too, they ventured into academic territory and mulled whether the political process
 the combined rules, norms, strategies, and tactics of the game-was being altered for elections to come.

 Like the citizens of many nations, Americans form an emotional bond with their heads of state.

Who wouldn't want to attend one of these events? It also shows off Obama's concern and com
mon touch, attributes made explicit in the accompanying texts on the cam
 paign site: 'While a typical political dinner these days consists of officials being wined and dined by Washington lobbyists and bigwigs from special interest PACs, Barack will be sitting down with four regular people from across the country who will share their stories and discuss the issues that matter most to them.'

Each of these beliefs will be examined, noting how they arose and how they have been exploited to sanctify political power and mili

Napoleon, aside from crushing the Venetian republic, destroyed freedom of the press, had political opponents in France assassinated, brutally sup
 pressed popular uprisings against French rule in Spain and elsewhere, and spawned wars that left millions of Europeans dead.
	

 People are urged to 'look beyond' or above banal political reality, and en
couraged to keep their eyes on the clouds so they don't see how many govern

Clifford May, the president of the Founda

How

Liberty has been at the wrong end of the shooting gallery for decades, and the political assaults have intensified during the past two presidencies.

Paul Wolfowitz made an important contribution by proposing a con

After finishing our memo on the Deputies meeting, I gave Rumsfeld our comments on his draft snowflake on Iraq.

tory, he argued in the memo that sanctions were proving insufficient to compel Saddam to change his policies and were getting weaker: '[Sad
 dam] undid the UN inspections in the 1990s and is working now to further undo the sanctions and the no-fly zones.
	

It was clear to him that approaching Saddam was a bad idea, and he signaled as much in his memo, confident that others would agree.

The Taliban regime presents several threats to US national interests in the Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia and beyond: 
• Harboring and supporting Usama bin Laden; • Sponsoring insurgency in Uzbekistan; 
• Opium production and trafficking; 
• Condoning or perpetuating widespread human, ethnic, reli

• Serving as a model for discontented populations of other Islamic states; and 
 • Impeding the advancement of a negotiated settlement to Afghanistan's own civil war.

BAILOUT NATION 

 For one of the most astounding examples of the industry's grotesque role in the housing boom, consider this JPMorgan internal memo, titled 'Zippy Cheats & Tricks.'
	

The memo taught loan officers how to 'cheat' the firm's own system.

executive, Richard E Syron, in 2004 received a memo from Freddie Mac's chief risk officer warning him that the firm was financing ques
 tionable loans that threatened its financial health.'
	

Every memo from Murdoch, every conversation with him, was meant to disturb, undermine, unman, threaten, criticize, and harass.
	

In the course of doing research on this issue, I discovered a Treasury memo from the Truman Administration that exactly reflected Treasury's current view on this issue and whose analysis could have been reused without alteration.
	

On one memo
 rable occasion, we were walking together on the beach at Shinnecock Bay when we saw a crowd gathered at the water's edge.
	

                                                                                                                   236 
Fortunately, the 'keep your yaps shut' memo didn't stop the whistleblowers from going public with even more damning dis
 closures.

ers, lawyer and feminist activist Susan Estrich (who would go on to run Michael Dukakis's presidential campaign in 1988 and who supported Clinton in 2008), submitted a memo, titled 'Unintended Consequences,' arguing that the PLEOs would be predominantly white males, thus running afoul of the DNC mandate (which had emerged from the McGovern-Fraser Commission) for equal representation on gender and a delegate slate that reflected the com
 position of the party.

When Bernanke replaced Greenspan, the mantra on Wall Street was 'one and done,' meaning that after fourteen rate hikes in a row under Greenspan, the Bernanke Fed would hike rates just one more time.
	

Then after keeping the funds rate unchanged for more than a year, in the fall of 2007 the Bernanke Fed abruptly cut the funds rate by 100 basis points over three meetings.
	

                                                              
growth-manifest relatively quickly, but the bad stuff-higher infla
 tion-show up only after a long lag.
	

In my writing at the time I referred to the crisis as a financial 
freeze, 
as one asset class after an
 other became highly illiquid, and investors piled into the Treasury market.
	

After decades of research on monetary economics and several years as a Fed governor, he had developed a clear agenda.
	

With stock prices weak, credit markets frozen, and very low returns on cash-like investments, where were investors to turn? For many years, investors had abandoned commodities as an asset class, but after a five-year boom in prices many people in the portfolio advice

BERNANKE'S BEGINNING 
business were recommending that commodities be part of diversi
 fied investment portfolios.
	

                                             Then he found one ex
cuse after another to avoid administering the tough monetary medi
 cine.

AUTHOR's NOTE 





 The first time I saw Palestine, I was too young to understand what I was seeing.
	

'This is what will happen after separation,' he has said, referring to the current

government policy to separate Jews from non-Jews in Israel and the occu
 pied territories.
	

'Facing the special security circumstances in the area and the need to take the necessary steps in order to prevent terrorist attacks and the exit of attackers from the areas of Judea and Samaria to the state of Israel,' wrote General Moshe Kaplinsky that month, 'I hereby declare that the

 This program of modernization was continued after 1948 when the West Bank came under Jordanian rule following the destruction of Palestine and creation of Israel and the eventual annexation of the West Bank by Jordan, in April 1950.

 Mohammad Jalud's story is typical rather than exceptional.
	

The brothers worked their land together, as they had been doing since the 1960s, until the wall went up in their area in 2003, after which they had to obtain permits from the Israelis to access their crops.
	

He spoke to me in Hebrew and after he cuffed me, he said, 'You'll stay with us tonight, and we'll show you what we'll do....
	

Thirty-six of those babies died shortly after birth due to complications that could not be attended to in the mud and dirt on the sides of roads.
	

After about thirty minutes, I got onto the main road and con
 tinued toward the Deir Sharaf checkpoint.
	

After about five hun
 dred meters 11,640 feet], at the junction with the Kedumim-Shavey Shomron bypass road, I saw an army jeep.
	

After waiting for thirty minutes, and because of Muhammad's serious medical condi
 tion, I decided to get out of the taxi and ask the soldiers to let me pass, or to give me back my identity card and Muhammad's medical documents so that I could take him to the hospital in Tulkarm.
	

At night, I was told that Muhammad had died after arriving at the hospital in Nablus.

Palestine Inside Out i 
After the 1967 War, during which Israel captured East Jerusalem and the West Bank (as well as the Gaza Strip), the Israelis expanded the territo
 rial dimensions of what they called Jerusalem by adding almost 27 square miles of West Bank land to the city's municipal borders.
	

The former mayor of Jerusalem, Teddy Kollek, became forth
 right in his assessment of Israeli planning principles in Jerusalem only after he left office.
	

In early 1997, that changed, and the ministry announced that permanent residency status would be granted only after a further five-year waiting period-on top of the years already spent waiting for the application to be processed in the first place.
	

(We met Eric and his scotch cap, a long time ago!!) We look out to Ariel, Yitzar, Male [sic] Ephraim, Shilo and Shvut Rachel and last but not least Rachalim, a small Yeshuv named after a lady who was also killed by terrorist gunfire several years ago.
	

the West Bank] is that they are Judea and Samaria and we are the people of Israel,' declared General Moshe

 Dayan from firmly within the Israeli mainstream, shortly after the 1967 war.
	

My two sisters, three brothers and neighbor, Marzuk Muhtaseb, arrived with some soldiers shortly after.
	

Finally, after more frantic phone calls to and from the Irish 
156 
 embassy, more behind-the-scenes negotiations between the Irish and the Israelis-the Israeli border guards stamped Mona's papers and let her go.
	

Israel commit
 ted to allowing the export of all agricultural products from Gaza; but in fact, only 4 percent of the 2005-6 harvest season was exported: the vast majority of the crops-over 100 tons of strawberries, flowers, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers-were either given away or destroyed after rotting awaiting shipment.
	

The doctors filed an emergency request to move the boy to the West Bank, but, even after Israel eventually granted permission to move him, delays at the border prevented him from getting out in time.
	

After a week, when the curfew was lifted, we rushed 
186 
 to the building and started to remove some cement blocks.
	

Ghazi Bani Odeh, a freelance journalist who was unable to work for extended periods because of the curfews, says that his family's financial position became precarious after 2002.
	

After subjecting the terrified child to a torrent of verbal abuse, the sergeant reports, they brought him to checkpoint 300, which was manned by the border police, who are not 
192   
Palestine Inside Out 
 known for their compassionate treatment of Palestinians, 'and what happened after that I don't know.'

 The village of Shajara was completely razed by Zionist forces after its capture.
	

Even after 1951, there was one attempt, by a cousin of my grandfather who now lives in Tam
 rah.
	

It is so named not because there are forty such villages-there are far more-but because the association was founded in the fortieth year after the 
nakba, 
1988; the name stems also from the fact that Arabs com
 monly recommemorate a person's death forty days after his passing.
	

After that, no one tried.'
	

In establishing the postwar settlement after 1918, Weizmann therefore urged the British authorities to take into account 'the treacherous nature of the Arab,' and to be careful 'that nothing should happen which might give the Arabs the slightest grievance or ground of complaint.
	

And the shepherds striding after them like figures from ancient times, whistling merrily and driving the goats toward the trees and bushes-to gnaw at them hungrily; and now the picture has disappeared and is no more.

So Missy became 'the office wife,' the charming and enor

It wasn't until after the Hundred Days that Roosevelt, who hadn't served in a legislative body in more than twenty years, even fa

93 percent have spoken prayer during their meetings 90 percent read from the Bible

87 percent devote time to sharing personal needs or experiences

51 percent share communion 
41 percent watch a video presentation as part of the learning experience 
The average size of these groups is twenty people; 64 percent include children and there is an average of seven children under the age of eighteen involved, which shows that the traditional church does not have a lock on the fam

 After a dazzling ninety minutes of worship, Bickle preached.
	

Seventy-five percent of the black church is female, he said, a statistic that will only rise as 'the church does not-will not-seek us black men out or perhaps even mourn our disappearance from the pews' He complains that the typical black church is irrelevant to the many poor people it serves, and its weekly gatherings are 'little more than fundraisers and quasi-fashion shows with a dose of spirituality' 
After listing in an essay the numbing amount of work that needs to be done among America's blacks, he wrote: 
 I suspect, however that as long as our wives, our children and our money flow through the church's doors, as long as there are still a few bodies to fill the seats, as long as the church can claim a semblance of relevance to the community, as long as some of us on the outside loom as potential critics of the direction, heart and stewardship of those black men charged with leading the church, very few are likely to ever come looking for us.

The Coming of the 'Literary Clerk' 
W
 en George Washington considered retiring in 1792 after a sin
 le term as president, he asked James Madison to help him draft a farewell address.
	

     In the days after Truman became president, Rosenman and the 
WHITE HOUSE GHOSTS 
rest of the White House staff no more than twenty people in total
 submitted their resignations so that the new president could bring his own folks in to the administration.
	

'He is going to look after my of
 fice while we are gone.'
	

WHITE HOUSE GHOSTS 
 A heavy-flaked, wet snow covered Washington on the evening of Saturday, March l, 1947, eight days after the British had warned of the impending problem.
	

WHITE HOUSE GHOSTS 
 After the 1960 election, Robert F. Kennedy broached the possibility of Schlesinger joining the White House staff.
	

That night, he ate his first hot meal in days, sent over to the White House by a friendly Washington matron, and, using Woodrow Wilson's speech declaring the United States' entry into World War I and FDR's speech after Pearl Harbor as reference points, stayed up until three o'clock writing a draft.
	

But after dispensing with the introductory remarks, he mostly ignored the whole thing in favor of improvisation.
	

'I've never known him to be satisfied with a speech, either before, after, or at any point.'

'Anybody that worked with him on a major speech would find that you're going through draft, after draft after draft and it's essentially being turned and twisted and moved around and in the end it's far more him than it is a speechwriter,' Buchanan recalled.
	

They went through eight drafts, with Nixon working alone 
on 
 the speech until after midnight in the Lincoln Sitting Room-more calls to Kissinger-and then to bed.
	

After an hour's sleep, he was up, and work
ing 
 again, returning to bed at 5:30 am.
	

He wanted to speak on January 25, five days after the State of the Union.
	

WHITE HOUSE GHOSTS 
 After dinner that night with the senior staff, Alex Butterfield, Nixon's appointments secretary, suggested that he and Huebner walk the latest draft over to the president's lodge, Nixon having dined alone.
	

At a press conference on the after
 noon of January 26, a reporter noted that for two years Carter had avoided an administration slogan.
	

While Kennedy ran off a string of primary victories after Illi
 nois, Carter won enough delegates to sew up the nomination.
	

He talked of being 
WHITE HOUSE GHOSTS 
 the first baby boomer president-not only the first to be born after World War II but the first to take office after the Cold War.
	

'These white guys thought they were working harder for less money, sleeping less, couldn't even afford a vacation and now the damn guy
 he didn't give me a tax cut and now he's coming after my gun,' he said.'
	

The 'era of big government' being 'over' was a developing thought buried in three miAor speeches, two of which had been given

 after reporters' deadlines.*
	

In the summer of 1996, Waldman would originate the campaign theme of building a bridge to the future after listening to Clinton riff on the image through the spring.

had flown half its air force to Iran in advance of the 1991 Gulf War (the planes were never returned), and some al Qaeda leaders had fled to Iran after the fall of Afghanistan (the Iranian government claimed to have arrested them).
	

Only weeks after the Russian Revolution the Bolsheviks reated secret police forces far more brutal than any that had existed under the tsar.

INTRODUCTION 
 after Lenin died, he easily pushed aside Trotsky, his main rival.
	

Growing up in Austria, Hitler likely did not differ from many of his generation in tending toward anti-Jewish attitudes, though it was not until after the Great War that he became the type of rabid anti-Semite we associate with the Nazi movement.
	

But just over seven months after the February liberal revolution, the

THE FIRST WORLD WAR AND THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION 25 
 came under particular scrutiny from the tsarist authorities.
	

                                                            Lenin went into hiding, aided by Stalin, who became a kind of special assis

revolution but were sure Kerensky would continue the war, which would inevitably end in defeat

Indeed, on July 6, Kerensky returned from the front and just days later became the new prime minister after Prince Lvov resigned in dis

 After this incident, and in the context of continuing white-collar resistance, Lenin opted for harsher measures.

LENIN, STALIN, AND HITLER 
ON THE WAY TO COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP 
In early 1919, just over a year after it was established, Cheka person
nel counted around 37,000, and that number grew to a high in mid-1921 
(
 Of 137,106, with an additional 94,288 in the frontier troops.
	

More than twenty different regimes were set up one after another in this area, and in the first months of 1919 alone some cities changed hands dozens of times.
	

The Don Cossack government had even gone so far as to offer refuge to Kerensky's provisional government after it was overthrown.
	

                                                                   After 
1917 
their regions in the south of Russia were iden
tified as bastions of the old order and part of the hard-core counterrevo
 lution.
	

                                           He warned that the leadefh

 almost a white terror.
	

After reviewing the options, he said, 'We National Socialists must not flinch from our aim in foreign policy, namely, to secure for the Ger
 man people the land and soil to which they are entitled.'
	

Other shadings of opinion could be found in the expanding Party, but there was nothing like the factionalism among the Marxists either before or after the Russian Revolution.
	

's Toward the end of 1907 he went to Western Europe and did not return to Russia until a decade later, after the collapse of the tsarist regime.
	

Inevitably the heavy workload and strain of the Revolu
 tion and Civil War adversely affected Lenin's shaky health, which declined further as he recuperated after the assassination attempt in August 1918.
	

                                                             In the first

189 years after the Party was refounded, however, it became clear that dur

There
 after, each district nominated two people per course.
	

He took aim at the Communists, who were accused of attacking Party members after his recent talk in Berlin.
	

The president decided after all to appoint the 'Bohemian corporal' the new head of government 34 
'ALL POWER' FOR HITLER   221 
The Hitler cabinet was, except for two posts, dominated by conserva
 tives.
	

After swearing in the cabinet, Hindenburg closed the brief ceremony with the words 'And now, gentlemen, forward with God!
	

There were, therefore, to be many more elections and plebiscites after 
WINNING OVER THE NATION   
 287 March 1933, but they, too, were opportunities for the nation to acclaim its support for the government.
	

General Werner von Blomberg, a well-known figure, was made the new minister of defense, chosen by the circle around Hindenburg to look after the interests of the Reichswehr.
	

                                                      Hindenburg said that 'after initial reservation, he had in Herr Hitler come to know a man of the

The officer corps as a whole responded warmly to Hitler's appoint

The latter emerged soon after the March elections.

 look its affinity with the `philosophy of war' that became widespread after 1918.
	

The air force, after taking out strategic targets, worked in tandem with the army to compel the Polish forces to retreat.
	

Khrushchev had reservations and after the fact recalled them: 
 We had a chance to get our head out from in front of our enemy's rifle, a choice we were pushed into by Western powers.
	

After delays caused by weather and other matters out of his con

After March 27, with the coup of Prince 397

433 The Wehrmacht was prepared not so much for a full-scale campaign as for 'expeditions' by motorized corps, after which there would be follow
 up 'sorties' into the Ural Mountains, just as the British Indian Army had supposedly done in the nineteenth century in the Afghan mountains.'

Violence swept through the streets, but only after almost a week did the Wehrmacht put a stop to the pogrom; by that time, four to seven thousand (described as Jews and Russians) had been killed.
	

Most of the fighting would be over by mid-October, after which some German troops could be withdrawn.
	

One witness quoted Globocnik as boasting among a group of SS men at Belzec, par

 ticularly when someone suggested it might be wise to cover up the crime: 'Gentlemen, if there were ever, after us, a generation so cowardly and soft that they could not understand our work which is so good, so necessary, then, gentlemen, all of National Socialism will have been in vain.
	

                                                                                                        It was only in

Khrushchev recalled, that Stalin began to show more confidence, and only after the first big victories did he begin to 
BETWEEN SURRENDER AND DEFIANCE   
 485 strut about 'like a rooster, his chest puffed out and his nose sticking up to the sky.'
	

On January 5, 1942, he put it this way: 'The Ger
 mans are in disarray after their defeat near Moscow.
	

Werth remembered how much changed after Rostov, in the week 
before the battle for Stalingrad really got going: 
 One can only marvel at the relative calm with which people awaited the Stalingrad battle.

 Goebbels wanted Hitler to get more involved on the home front and do walkabouts after bombings as Churchill did.
	

         Although several operations against Stalin were being planned for

545 Just after 
3:00 
p.m. on November 28 the two met (with their transla
 tors), and Roosevelt asked the perfect first question: How were things going on the Soviet battlefront? That opened the door for Stalin to underline the Germans' resistance.
	

The Polish problem will historically no longer be a big problem for our children and for all who come after us, nor indeed for us.'
	

He ended his testa
 ment by demanding that even after his death the 'leaders of the nation' observe the 'laws of race' and continue the 'merciless opposition' against the Jews.
	

In Germany it is true that thousands suffered dreadfully in the first camps, most of them Communists, but they were usually released after a short and nightmarish stay.

(At first Wolfowitz served as Rumsfeld's 'plus one,' but after I became Under Secretary the task increasingly became mine.)
	

When Rumsfeld sounded out our European allies about reducing the U.S. presence there, they warned that such a move could bring about wholesale collapse: Years after the U.S. military had helped to save those regions' victimized Muslims,

 civil government had not yet been established in either place.
	

WAR AND DECISION 
 After 9/11, the number of meetings increased-and days off largely disappeared.
	

In the hours after 9/11, Bush had sent Richard Armitage to demand 
128   WAR AND DECISION 
 that Pervez Musharraf declare whether Pakistan was our friend or our enemy.
	

On issue after issue, Rice worked hard to produce bridging proposals
 even though, when Bush was presented with a clear choice among rival views, he showed the ready decisiveness of a confident executive.
	

In April 2002, a few weeks after OSI's demise, I laid out my thoughts on the subject in a speech (circulated in advance to State, White House, and Pentagon colleagues):

The video shows him doing it 
 In 1980, a little more than a year after becoming President of Iraq, Saddam invaded Iran, starting an eight-year war that killed an estimated one million people.
	

After his overthrow, U.S. officials collected some of these records-videos 
184   WAR AND DECISION 
 made by Saddam's security services-onto a sickening DVD.
	

In later years, according to one official Iraqi document captured by U.S. forces after Saddam's overthrow, the Fedayeen Saddam brought Arab volunteers from Egypt, Palestine, 
188   WAR AND DECISION 
 Jordan, the Gulf, and Syria to those camps for training.
	

(Where the vol
 unteers went after their training remains unclear.)
	

Out of this painful history, the CIA and Chalabi developed a mutual hatred that would affect U.S. policy before and after Saddam's overthrow.
	


 Time after time, whenever Saddam confronted those who would contain him, he showed that he had more stomach than his opponents did.
	

After all, having expelled Iraq's invasion forces from Kuwait in 1991, the coalition might have proceeded to overthrow Saddam's regime, in the interests of regional peace and secu
 rity.
	

But after a few weeks, Pace commented that we often wasted five minutes or so waiting for the table to be set after the previous meeting ended, so we agreed to dispense with the lunch service.

 ment indicted Chalabi for financial malfeasance following the 1990-91 Gulf War (convicting him in absentia in a military court), State and CIA officials would report these charges at face value, omitting to note that Jordan's King Hussein received substantial aid from Iraq and had sided with Saddam Hussein in the Gulf War-and Chalabi was Saddam's most prominent Iraqi opponent.
	

After becoming National Security Adviser, she often commented that if the differing views of National Security

Most important, Luti argued, they could serve as knowledgeable intermediaries, helping to: 
• advise senior coalition leaders 
• form Iraq [intelligence] fusion cell • provide interpreters 
• provide scouts for combat units 
• contract for indigenous logistics support 
 Luti contended that a fifteen-hundred- to two-thousand-man Iraqi force could help CENTCOM perform civil-military operations during and after a war.
	

General Franks could organize the force into units of mili

Even after that statue came down in Baghdad's Firdaus Square, the Iraqis knew that Saddam Hussein and his agents remained at large-and able to strike the coalition and the Iraqis who supported it.
	

But it wasn't until June 23-a full month after the May 23 dissolu

After the overthrow of the Taliban and Saddam Hussein regimes, Libya decided to get out of the WMD business, and Syria withdrew its military forces from Lebanon for the first time in nearly twenty years.
	

I recalled that in 1989, when a UN team confirmed that Iraq had used chemical weapons against Iran-thus violating the Geneva Protocol, perhaps the most significant multilateral legal convention after the UN Charter itself-the international meeting to address the violation was unable even to agree to a condemning resolution that would name Iraq as the violator.
	

He reported that the IAEA was 'not able to reach any conclusion about Iraq's compliance with its Security Council obligations in the nuclear field after December 1998,' when Saddam effectively expelled the IAEA inspectors.

In 2002, not long after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Ahmed joined a clandestine al Qaeda cell group operating inside the kingdom.
	

What's more, they described the case as 'one of the most dangerous terrorist threats that America faces in the perilous world after September

He became a critically important ally of the West in the battle against the Radicals after 9/11 and during the liberation of Iraq and its aftermath.
	

Once the leader of a violent Kurdish guerrilla faction in the 1960s and 1970s, Talabani put down his arms, ordered his followers to do the

 same, and helped create a peaceful and prosperous democratic province in northern Iraq in the 1990s after the first Gulf War.
	

And not just by the Rank-and-File processing the debate as if watching a championship tennis game at Wimbledon-turning their heads from one side to the other and back again-but among some Radicals as well, those whose consciences are burning and whose eyes reflect a growing horror as they see what they are doing in a new light and wonder if perhaps God is not in all this bloodshed and hatred after all.

He was tech-savvy, having run a successful telecom business in the Saudi kingdom before returning to Iraq after liberation.
	

In an interview with an Arab newspaper in Damascus just days after Obamds comments, Talabani unleashed his fury against Islamic Radicals.
	

Second, Bremer said he believed Al Qaeda in Iraq had overplayed their hand by instigating Muslim-on-Muslim violence that Iraqis saw

After the abduction and murder of two Moroccan diplomats in Baghdad in the fall of 2005 and repeated

After each session, they would huddle together to compare notes about what God was doing in their cities, towns, and villages.
	

Again, the precise numbers are not as important as the trend, and the trend is that the Church is definitely bearing fruit again after centuries of spiritual barrenness.

'Hundreds and hundreds of churches were planted after the Soviet Union broke down,' one Uzbek Christian leader told me.
	

But after watching how calmly and patiently his son had endured the village's persecution, and how God had withdrawn his favor from the village and now was giving it back again, the father sat up all night with his son asking him questions about his faith, about the Bible, and about the power of his son's God to hear prayers and answer them.

• Israel's desolate, desert lands will again blossom and pro

 Many Arabs, Iranians, and others in the Middle East are not happy that Israel became a country on May 14, 1948, that millions of Jews have moved to Israel, and that the Israeli military has become powerful and highly effective.

Public expenditure continued to exceed tax revenue; arguments for a premature end to wage and price controls prevailed; inflation resumed after only the most fleeting of stabilizations.
	

After the advent of banking and the birth of the bond market, the next step in the story of the ascent of money was therefore the rise of the joint-stock, limited-liability corporation: joint-stock because the company's capital was jointly owned by multiple investors; limited-liability because the separate existence of the company as a legal `person' protected the investors from losing all their wealth if the venture failed.

When he charged twenty thousand dollars' worth of karaoke equipment and decided days later that he didn't actually want to go into the karaoke business after all, I re

After the Times story broke, a fu

After a decade of learning to swim upstream in the Reagan rhetori
cal tide, Bill Clinton was an expert at juggling the rhetoric of indi
 vidualism and community.
	

He was a Goldwater man-he was, after all, a Republican from Arizona-and if you saw McCain at his ranch in Sedona, 
THE LIMITS OF INDIVIDUALISM   107 
 as I did one spring weekend, you saw a fellow who thought of himself in the Western tradition of ornery leave-me-alone-ism.
	

After six years in the wilderness, the Democrats had returned to power in the Senate, and Kennedy, now in the majority again on Senator Joe Biden's Judiciary Committee, aimed a half decade of pent-up anti-Reagan anger at the judge.
	

Lincoln spoke of our nation at Gettysburg, Roosevelt at his first inauguration, George W. Bush at the National Cathedral after 
 9/11.
	

Lee Greenwood became Bush's unoffi
 cial vocalist, showing up to sing 'God Bless the USA' at event after event.
	

'Basically, after the attacks on the Trade Center in 1993, the FBI blew it,' said Leahy.
	

                    Three years after his departure, Nixon was asked 
PRESIDENTIAL POWER   171 
by interviewer David Frost whether some of the domestic spying activi
 ties he had approved were legal.
	

Just after his inauguration, he invited Senator Joseph Biden-the Democrats' senior man on the topic-to the Oval Office for a chat.
	

If accepted (and it was not), the theory would reduce the Congress to after
 thought status.
	

After his years at Harvard Busi- 
WAR AND DIPLOMACY   195

He had traveled to more countries more times than anyone else on the Hill, and as part of a quite possibly quixotic bid for his party's 
2oo8 
presidential nomination, he had prepared a long cri
tique of Bush's tenure-and of America's position in the world five years after the 
9/11 
 attacks.
	

In fact, after he and George W. Bush won a second term, Cheney purchased a $2.67

                                            CONCLUSION 
_   When I first envisioned this book in the spring of 
2005, 
 I saw it as a reporter's act of explanation, an effort to map what I had come to see, after years on the politics beat, as the double-helix DNA of American public life.
	

We were born in crushing debt after the Revolution, for example, and worked our way out of it through 
244   THE THIRTEEN AMERICAN ARGUMENTS 
 the ferocious arguments of the Hamiltonians and Jeffersonians.
	

Then again, the more hidden places where we stayed could have given away my situation-at the 
office, 
 where I'd work late so we could stretch out on the floor under my desk after hours; or, as on occasion we found ourselves, in the public bathroom of an Oakland BART station.
	

     As much as I kept going forward because I believed a better future lay ahead, and as much as I was sure that the encounter out
side San Francisco General Hospital had steered me to that future, the real driving force came from that other pivotal event in my 
8   
Chris Gardner 
 life-which had taken place back in Milwaukee in March 1970, on a day not long after my sixteenth birthday.
	

Eyes down on her newspaper, not even lifting them, instead of

Chris Gardner 
making a dig that maybe I could go out and hustle up more hours doing odd jobs after school, she said with trademark subtle sarcasm, 'Well, why don't you just act like you got five dollars?' 
	

My brain understands he has raped me twice, but my emotions refuse to compute, all messed up over the fear that he's going to kill me after he's done.
	

Even though Moms could cook anything that Freddie brought home-fried with rice and gravy, it was filet mignon to me, perfect with cornbread, greens, and maybe some yams on the side-cleaning and skinning any
 thing with fur or feathers became a horrific undertaking after a while.
	

So as Moms, Sharon, and Kim followed Freddie out to his car, I just called after them, 'Merry Christmas! Y'all go ahead, to the party, I'm going to the movies with Belinda, so maybe I'll stop by later.'
	

After we met, we spent two days just talk
 ing.
	

My hair was never the same after boot camp.
	

jackie had every reason to be frustrated, after all.
	

In an experience to be filed under the heading of 'best-laid plans of mice and men,' after enjoying those two weeks-during which I don't get around to taking care of the parking tickets-to 
zoa   Chris Gardner 
make a good impression I show up thirty minutes early on the ap
 pointed Monday morning and no one seems to know who I am.
	

After dinner, a little television, and a visit with TV Joe, our last stop before heading home was to cruise by The palms as the ladies 
258   
Chris Gardner 
 of the evening gathered at their posts, several calling to me and my sop, 'Hey, Chris!
	

Bear Stearns had only six to seven hundred brokers, and instead of being mass-market-the mom-and-pop investors, folks wanting IRAs and utilities, meat-and-potatoes-this smaller partnership was going after bigger fish in the institutional invest
 ment business: banks, pension funds, insurance companies, money managers, bigger businesses.
	

After numerous explanations and attempted analogies, I finally put it this way: 'Let's say all these companies that I represent are at the casino and I'm the house.'
	

The 'emergency' has been in place for five consecutive years now;

 virtually every bill that has passed through the House in the Bush era has been voted on just hours after emerging from the hairy womb of the Rules Committee.
	

Soon after that the press left for the day, and Barton grinned, picked up his briefcase, and crossed the hall to con
 front the Rules Committee.
	

Fortenberry took this set of metaphors and ran with them straight for the hyperbolic end zone, talking about situations

Specifically, after enough desperation and misery and corporate self-abnegation, and picking up the phone late at night to listen to fellow Christians wish openly that they can pray their way out of next week's bills, and drinking cheap pow

depressives who think Satan is the reason their kids don't call them anymore-after enough of that, a full-on, million-piece

I'm not sure exactly what was said at first, but I recall that after a stammering attempt on my part to start

 a discussion, all five or so protesters started speaking at once; I heard something about 'heat levels' on my left and 'video' on my right.
	

                                                  You had Joe Isuzu talking about using his trucks to haul two-thousand
pound cheeseburgers alongside cola ads that showed ordinary people looking like they were about to have huge heaving or
 gasms at the sight of a cold Coke, or be magically transformed into swimwear models after a couple of Diet Pepsis.
	

I then saw this assertion repeated religiously all over the Web-Kean naturally led the coverup, he was in the CFR, after all.
	

After all, I thought, if you really think that the government murdered three thousand Americans, shouldn't you be doing more than holding sit-ins and organizing discussion groups? And so, at some of these meetings, I started to hear 'Lee Smith'-my al
 ter ego-calling for immediate action.
	

Although the point of the Q&A session was supposed to be a discussion of the movie, the movie had seemingly been forgotten minutes after it ended, 
and the activity we were now engaging in involved circling the

As for the wild conjecture that interest rates would need to rise to 10 to 12 percent to break the back of the stock market, we will never know because interest rates were never even north of 6 percent in 1994-1995, after hav-

The Friday after Thanksgiving, two weeks later, was a particularly memorable day.
	

Nonetheless, the religious fervor with which stock-split candidates were lusted after was a strong hint that madness prevailed.
	

For instance, there was stock-split fever; all through the late 1990s investors repeatedly chased after companies that were splitting their shares.
	

A week after the rate hike, Cisco reported its quarterly

When I became aware of CYBR [Cyber Care Inc.], I did voluminous amounts of research and only after I was totally convinced, I started buying.
	

                                               But, as Grant explained, after those improvements were cap

After that day, almost all economic and financial problems were blamed on its events.
	

Shortly after the publication of that paper, in the fall of 2003, Greenspan decided that fighting deflation wasn't enough.
	

After all, he was the Fed Chairman; he was supposed to know these things.
	

How much vanity must be concealed-not too effectively at that-in order to pretend that one is the personal object of a divine plan? How much self-respect must be sacrificed in order that one may squirm continually in an awareness of one's own sin? How many needless assumptions must be made, and how much contortion is required, to receive every new insight of science and manipulate it so as to 'fit' with the revealed words of ancient man-made deities? How many saints and miracles and coun
cils and conclaves are required in order first to be able to establish a dogma and then-after infinite pain and loss and absurdity and

THE NIGHTMARE OF THE 'OLD' TESTAMENT   IOS 
Long before modern inquiry and painstaking translation and ex
 cavation had helped enlighten us, it was well within the compass of a thinking person to see that the 'revelation' at Sinai and the rest of the Pentateuch was an ill-carpentered fiction, bolted into place well after the nonevents that it fails to describe convincingly or even plausibly.
	

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        The self-taught Thomas Paine has never been refuted since he wrote, while suffering dire persecution by French Jacobin antireligionists, to show 
that these books are spurious, and that Moses is not the author of them; and still further, that they were not written in the time of Moses, nor till several hundred years afterwards, that they are an attempted history of the life of Moses, and of the times in which he is said to have lived; and also of the times prior thereto, written by some very ignorant and stupid pretenders several hun
 dred years after the death of Moses; as men now write histories of things that happened, or are supposed to have happened, several hundred or several thousand years ago.
	

And it is necessarily odd because, just like the Old Testament, the 'New' one is also a work of crude carpentry, hammered together long after its purported events, and full of improvised attempts to make things come out right.
	

                                                                                                                    There is no men
tion of any Augustan census by any Roman historian, but the Jewish chronicler Josephus mentions one that did occur-without the oner
 ous requirement for people to return to their places of birth, and six years after the birth of Jesus is supposed to have taken place.
	

This is, all of it, quite evidently a garbled and oral-based reconstruction un
 dertaken some considerable time after the 'fact.'
	

Many years after C. S. Lewis had gone to his reward, a very serious young man named Barton Ehrman began to examine his own fundamentalist assumptions.
	

He was astonished to find that some of the best-known Jesus stories were scribbled into the canon long after the fact, and that this was true of perhaps the best-known of them all.
	

After the Angel Gabriel (who so identified himself) had told Muhammad that he was to be Allah's messenger, and had departed, Muhammad confided in his wife Khadijah.
	

Heres returned to the world after passing a fortnight in hell.
	

But even after the last serviceman flew or sailed away after 
1945, 
 the eventual return of the savior From was preached and predicted, and an annual ceremony still bears his name.
	

After such knowledge, what forgiveness? The film 
Marjoe 
 won an Academy Award in 1972, and has made absolutely no difference at all.
	

So notorious did this local tendency become that the region became known as the 'Burned-Over District,' in honor of the way in which it had surrendered to one religious craze after another.
	

Christians used to resolve this problem by saying that Jesus descended into hell after his crucifix
 ion, where it is thought that he saved or converted the dead.
	

                                               Who can count the number of lives that have been made miserable in this way, especially since Christian doctors began to adopt ancient Jewish folklore in their hospitals? And who can bear to read the medical textbooks and his
tories which calmly record the number of boy babies who died from infection after their eighth day, or who suffered gross and unbearable dysfunction and disfigurement? The record of syphilitic and other infection, from rotting rabbinical teeth or other rabbinical indiscre
 tions, or of clumsy slitting of the urethra and sometimes a vein, is simply dreadful.
	

To decide to do nothing is itself a policy and a decision, and it is unfortunately easy to record and explain the church's alignment in terms of a real
politik that sought, not the defeat of Nazism, but an accommodation with 
The very first diplomatic accord undertaken by Hitler's govern
ment was consummated on July 8, 1933, a few months after the sei
 zure of power, and took the form of a treaty with the Vatican.
	

At the first meeting of his cabinet after this capitulation was signed, Hitler announced that these new circumstances would be 'especially significant in the struggle against international Jewry.'
	

The afterlife is not mentioned in North Korea, because the idea o£ a defection in any direction is very strongly discouraged, but as against that it is not claimed that the two Kims will continue to dominate you after you are dead.

scores our ignorance on this point and, more important, shows that our lead
ers still believe we can operate on Cold War time, taking whatever time we need to work things out to our satisfaction and secure our intended accom

In making that decision, they stuck hard to the Cold War script U.S. casualties are unpopular at home so do not risk troops; protect U.S. troops by using Afghan mujahedin proxies to go into the mountains after bin Laden, and employ Pakistani military proxies to close the border and block bin Laden's escape; and try to get him, but if you fail another chance will occur.'

Taking the Right Lessons from Defeat 
When the U.S. defeat in Iraq becomes clear and unquestionable, it will be very important, as it is in Afghanistan, that Americans do not permit the Republicans and Democrats, and the punditry aligned with each, to effec
 tively sell the idea that all would have been well in Iraq if Washington had had an extravagantly expensive and ready-to•roll reconstruction plan to implement after Saddam's regime was destroyed.
	

Decisive American action along these lines helped preserve democracy in Western Europe during the year; after World War B, thereby laying the groundwork for
