Rob Johnson Did Beatniks Kill John F. Kennedy.. Bongo Joe.s Requiem for the President

For forty years, George "Bongo Joe" Coleman beat his oil barrel drums and improvised songs to the delight of sidewalk audiences in Houston, Galveston, Fort Worth, and San Antonio. On the morning of November 22, 1963, he was playing at the infamous beatnik nightclub "The Cellar" in Fort Worth, and his music became part of the soundtrack of the Kennedy assassination. Rob Johnson's book includes never-before-revealed details of the assassination and an analysis of that event through the lens of the beatnik era, but in the end it tells an even more important unknown story--the remarkable life of Bongo Joe. As a fan once wrote on the side of his drum barrel, "Bongo Joe is Forever."

Peter McKenna ALL HIS BRIGHT LIGHT GONE. The Death of John F. Kennedy and the Decline of America

METADATATITLE: ALL HIS BRIGHT LIGHT GONESUBTITLE: The Death of John F. Kennedy and the Decline of AmericaAUTHOR: Peter McKennaISBN: 978-0-997132-0-0FORMAT: soft coverDESCRIPTION: The book explores how the United States declined after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Its premise is that Kennedy understood that this country was originally designed by the Founding Fathers to be a democratic republic, and that it must remain a democratic republic if it is to survive. In a remarkably short time, Kennedy created a modern-day version of a republic by inspiring the American people to embrace civic responsibility and to participate in government.This approach was ignored by presidents Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush. Kennedy said the president must never lie to the people, but Nixon and Johnson lied to protect their political ambitions. Kennedy wanted an economy that worked for every citizen, but Reagan created trickle-down economics, a system that said our government is the enemy of the people, and he made special interests and corporations the driving force of the economy. He made no effort to promote participatory democracy, instead he created an ideology based on greed and anti-government sentiment.Conservatives have used this ideology to transfer the bulk of our nation’s wealth to just one percent of the population. The ideological warfare Reagan began has today brought government to a halt. This country’s political leaders cannot r...

William Van Ornum Eugene Kennedy

For two decades, Eugene Kennedy was one of the church's fiercest critics in the sexual abuse crisis, with frequent articles in National Catholic Reporter. This book--written as an appreciation by one of Kennedy's former students at Loyola University of Chicago--recalls and assesses his huge literary output throughout fifty years of active research and writing. Kennedy's entire career can be seen as an extension of Vatican II. Topics in the tremendous arc of his career include a career-starting book on improving seminaries, inspiring books about faith in the twentieth century, leadership in the 1972 study by United States Catholic bishops, books on how to do counseling at the parish level, ongoing reviews of how the church put Vatican II in motion, and his last book, which is a gentle collection of blogs as he fondly reminisced about his life. In the middle of all this, he was a successful novelist and political commentator whose editor was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. And much, much more.""Eugene Kennedy lived a life that mirrored the great change in the Catholic church in the twentieth century: at various times a psychologist, author, and activist, sometimes all three. His rich and varied life is beautifully recounted in this new book--the first biography of Kennedy, and a worthy one, of this important and inspiring Catholic layman.""--James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage""With skill and passion, Eugene Kennedy penned insight and...

Robert F Kennedy Just Friends and Brave Enemies. We must meet our duty and convince the world that we are JUST FRIENDS AND BRAVE ENEMIES

This is a report on Robert F. Kennedy's 1962 round-the-world trip, which involved some sharp give and take, some useful impressions - and some thoughts on the responsibilities of freedom.This book is entitled “We must meet our duty and convince the world that we are JUST FRIENDS AND BRAVE ENEMIES” by Robert F. KennedyIn March of 1962, a Harper editor who had worked with Mr. Kennedy during the writing of his book, The Enemy Within, was permitted to read transcripts of Mr. Kennedy's lively and provocative exchanges with students, businessmen and labor leaders during his just completed 30,000-mile round the world tour.Fascinated by the unprecedented give-and-take between the Attorney General of the United States and countless citizens of Japan, Indonesia and Berlin – and by Mr. Kennedy's Personal reflections at the end of the trip – he persuaded Mr. Kennedy to set down in a book form the story of the trip, excerpts of talks given en route (and, just as important, talks received) together with the view of the United States gained from the prospective of his travels and contacts. Mr. Kennedy's point of view is succinctly expressed in the title of this book – and at greater length in the final chapter.This book was planned during a brief Florida vacation and executed nights and weekends on trains and plains and in cars and hotel rooms as Mr. Kennedy pursued and extraordinary busy schedule. It is published in the hope that American readers may, in sharing Mr. Kennedy...

Bernhard Hagen The Disappearing Fear of Neutralism

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject History Europe - Germany - Postwar Period, Cold War, grade: very good, University of New Orleans (History Department), course: SE American History, language: English, abstract: Various studies discuss the American view of the Austrian State Treaty and Austrian neutrality, both concluded in 1955. There are a number of studies concerning the Eisenhower- and Kennedy Administrations regarding Austrian neutrality. In all of them, the American fear of neutralism plays a key role. Securing Austria's close connection with "western ideology" and therefore minimizing Soviet influence were main goals of U.S. policy towards Austria. The neutral state should at least show ideological support of the West in the East-West conflict.In the first part of this paper, I will try to describe the difference between the terms "neutrality" and "neutralism". Afterwards, it is necessary to discuss the Eisenhower and Kennedy Administrations policies towards Austria and give a brief overview of this time. The main goal is to examine the Johnson Administration's view of Austrian neutrality. The records in the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library in Austin, Texas, indicate that there was no more fear of Austrian neutralism by the mid-1960s. This paper analyses this development and discusses the status of Austrian neutrality in the sixties. Did the Eisenhower Administration succeed in pulling Austria to the "western side" in t...

Boyd Johnson The Johnson Chronicles

Among the gifts Boyd Johnson received on his twenty-first birthday was a letter that his grandfather wrote to him sixteen years earlier, shortly before he died. That letter helped complete the picture of a man Boyd barely remembered, and led to a search for more information about his family. What he found are the documents in this book, the words of long-dead ancestors telling a previously lost story. The story begins when ten-year-old Jacob Johnson and his family walked from North Carolina to western Kentucky in 1810, and then follows the family as it migrates in succeeding generations to Tennessee and Missouri and Oregon and Washington and California and finally to Texas where Boyd was born and raised. Here is the story of that 200-year journey in the words of those who were there. A lot happened along the way.

James Shaw Kennedy Notes on the Battle of Waterloo. With a Memoir of the Author. Services During the Peninsular War and at Waterloo, 1815

Historian and expert witness to the great battleThe author of this concise book was well qualified to undertake the task of documenting the events he witnessed. During the Peninsular War he served with the famous Light Division as an officer of the 43rd-the same regiment as William Napier. Kennedy saw much action and his description of the storming of Badajoz is the principal inspiration for that section in Napier's history. Despite his varied and interesting Peninsula War experiences Kennedy appears to have been a reluctant autobiographer and his brief account of his military services offers but a tantalising glimpse of what he might have left for posterity. Kennedy was present at Waterloo responsible-after the wounding of Alten-for much of the centre of the British line, the Third Division. In the original edition Kennedy's memoir appears at the start of his book, the Leonaur Editors have however elected to move it to the end of their edition together with a small 'stand alone' essay on proposals for the defence of Canada. His memoir-written in one long section-has also been separated into chapters about different periods of his career to make it more relevant for modern readers. The principal object of Kennedy's book is an analysis of the Battle of Waterloo. This is an excellent work, if idiosyncratically presented in numbered points and with little regard for literary nicety. Kennedy intends to convey the most information in the least possible words an...

Kevin Vautour, Kerry Keene Number 4 Bobby Orr. A Chronicle of the Boston Bruins. Greatest Decade 1966-1976 Led by Their Legendary Superstar

Bursting upon the National Hockey League scene in the fall of 1966 amid enormous hype and expectations, Robert Gordon "Bobby" Orr would go on to exceed all predictions of greatness. Displaying All-Star level ability from the start, it was his talent as a play maker and scorer that utterly revolutionized the game of hockey.At the same time, Orr helped revive a tired, long-suffering Boston Bruins team, leading them to their first Stanley Cup in twenty-nine years at the age of twenty-two. Orr and company would drink from the Cup again two years later as he continued to cement his legacy with MVP Awards and Norris Trophies. The unforgettable sight of him rushing the puck up ice with blond hair flying was a thing of sheer athletic beauty.But Orr's fragile knees plagued him throughout his career, ultimately forcing him to retire before the age of thirty. But in his ten years with the Bruins, the remarkable body of work and the greatness he achieved prompt many hockey historians to regard him as the all-around greatest, most skillful player in history.Number 4: Bobby Orr! is the most ambitious in-depth look at Orr and the Bruins' greatest decade.

V. Trostnikov Russia earthly and heavenly. The longest decade

This is not an ordinary book about Russia, made up of works from different years, the famous Russian scientist and thinker Victor Nikolaevich Trostnikova. The author, having vast experience gained over many years in a variety of conditions, remains remarkably young. Indeed, Russia in a sense, has experienced his "longest decade". A judgment of the author on all sorts of aspects of public life, science, religion, common sense are unusually sharp, grasping the essence of today's (and yesterday's and tomorrow's) reality. This makes the prophetic book of largely V. N. Trostnikova "Russian earth and heaven," a priceless gift for the generations with respect to young people who do not have personal experience significant past - both in science and in the spiritual enlightenment that comes to a person, alas, not always as a young man, and with the passage of years. Matters spiritual, religious maturity - have also become an important element of the book. Book coming out for the first time, perhaps, it will be for the reader to the source of many discoveries. Published in author's edition.

The Lady with the Little Dog and Other Stories, 1896-1904

In the final years of his life, Chekhov had reached the height of his powers as a dramatist, and also produced some of the stories that rank among his masterpieces. The poignant 'The Lady with the Little Dog' and 'About Love' examine the nature of love outside of marriage - its romantic idealism and the fear of disillusionment. And in stories such as 'Peasants', 'The House with the Mezzanine' and 'My Life' Chekhov paints a vivid picture of the conditions of the poor and of their powerlessness in the face of exploitation and hardship. With the works collected here, Chekhov moved away from the realism of his earlier tales - developing a broader range of characters and subject matter, while forging the spare minimalist style that would inspire such modern short-story writers as Hemingway and Faulkner.

Ken Johnson No Shortcuts To Glory

NO SHORT CUTS TO GLORY is a new book by Ken Johnson that begins with the story of one of the great teams in the history of the American Quarter Horse. It is the story of the legendary Poco Bueno and his trainer Pine Johnson. Pine Johnson on Poco Bueno set the standard early on for power and athletic ability in the modern cutting horse. They were the team nobody wanted to see at a show--they were the team they had to beat and that was hard to do.

Donald Johnson Stop The Propaganda

Stop the propaganda!If you don’t control your environment, your environment will control you. Throughout my twenty years as a gang specialist, I have met numerous law enforcement officers that have been assigned to gang-suppression units and have effectively disrupted and/or dismantled criminal enterprises. Within groups of gang cops, many retire after a twenty-plus-year career, and yet these criminal enterprises that recruit our youth, that hold our communities hostages continue to thrive and expand.During his law enforcement career, Don Johnson excelled as a gang cop and helped mentor future gang cops within the state of New Jersey. What separates Don Johnson and makes him unique from the individuals that fade away into retirement is his drive to continue to educate and mentor. Don Johnson has unselfishly chosen to continue his crusade and focus on educating communities, families, and youth on the dangers of criminal street/prison gangs. Drawing from his personal experiences, Don Johnson effectively delivers a message of awareness and change to those eager to understand, as well as those that seek to change. Within his newest book, Stop the Propaganda, Don Johnson shares not only his experience and knowledge with the reader to give an understanding as to why people choose to join these gangs with all their deadly consequences but, more importantly, also his heartfelt commitment to being more than a gang cop. Edwin L.

Caroline Stone, Karen M.D. Johnson Curious and Amazing Adventures of Maria Ter Meetelen; Twelve Years a Slave, the (1731- 43)

"From the age of thirteen I wandered abroad and at twenty-one I decided to take a little trip across France dressed as a man....." Maria ter Meetelen tells the story of her capture by Barbary pirates and twelve years as a slave at Meknès in Morocco. Straightforward and with no literary pretensions, her voice comes down the centuries, robust, clear, personal and often surprising: "I do not complain at having been so far across the world, nor of my twelve years of slavery, nor of the suffering the Turks caused me, I can rise above that. But the spitefulness and derision that my husband and I suffered from our fellow-countrymen cannot be forgotten, and is impossible for me to set it down here in writing."

John Dos Passos Three Soldiers

Wikepedia: Three Soldiers is a 1921 novel by the American writer and critic John Dos Passos. It is one of the key American war novels of the First World War, and remains a classic of the realist war novel genre. The disillusionment John Dos Passos felt for the Great War forms the core of THREE SOLDIERS, which stands as a denunciation of the military and its exploitation of young men. The novel chronicles the wartime experiences of a trio of American privates from different backgrounds: Andrews, a gifted musician and Harvard graduate from New York; Fuselli, a store clerk who hopes to impress a girl back home in San Francisco; and Chrisfield, an easygoing farm boy from Indiana. Recognized as a masterpiece when first published more than seventy-five years ago, THREE SOLDIERS still stands as a testament to the dehumanizing effects of war.

Beat Andreas Schweizer The Assassination of John F. Kennedy

Pre-University Paper from the year 2006 in the subject English - Discussion and Essays, grade: 5.5 (Schweiz), , language: English, abstract: John Fitzgerald Kennedy was very popular and much adored during his term of office. The world should not yet know about his real personality. In later years after his death, the truth came out. He was not the faithful husband nor was he in good health. Nevertheless, he is still one of the most popular US Presidents ever. He had not deserved to be assassinated. No one has. Inspired by Oliver Stone's Hollywood movie 'JFK', I wanted to know more about the assassination. Who could be responsible for it? Which motivation could someone have to kill the president of the most powerful nation in the world? I do not intend to find the real murderer, I am not competent for that. Yet, I can try to get a picture of the most important theories and evaluate them. I am as well interested in the consequences of the assassination on the world. I think another interesting question is how the people reacted to the assassination. People who were there, and people who only heard it in the news. Both seem to be concerned. The most exciting part about the assassination is the ignorance. Although over 40 years passed since then, the Kennedy case, as one of very few of the 20th Century, still remains unsolved.

Samuel Johnson Johnson on Savage: The Life of Mr Richard Savage by Samuel Johnson

Lives that Never Grow OldPart of a radical series –edited by Richard Holmes – that recovers the great classical tradition of English biography. Johnson’s book is a biographical masterpiece, still thrilling to read and vividly alive.When he first came to London, young Samuel Johnson was befriended by the flamboyant poet, playwright and blackmailer, Richard Savage. Walking the backstreets at night, he learned Savage’s extraordinary story – supposedly persecuted by a ‘cruel mother’, sentenced to death for a murder in a brothel, appointed Volunteer Poet Laureate to the Queen, and finally broken and outcast.With this moving and intimate account, Johnson created a brilliant black comedy of 18th-century Grub Street which revolutionised English biography by its psychological realism. Yet Savage’s destructive charm and delusions of grandeur sometimes even threatened to entangle Johnson himself.

METADATATITLE: ALL HIS BRIGHT LIGHT GONESUBTITLE: The Death of John F. Kennedy and the Decline of AmericaAUTHOR: Peter McKennaISBN: 978-0-997132-0-0FORMAT: soft coverDESCRIPTION: The book explores how the United States declined after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Its premise is that Kennedy understood that this country was originally designed by the Founding Fathers to be a democratic republic, and that it must remain a democratic republic if it is to survive. In a remarkably short time, Kennedy created a modern-day version of a republic by inspiring the American people to embrace civic responsibility and to participate in government.This approach was ignored by presidents Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush. Kennedy said the president must never lie to the people, but Nixon and Johnson lied to protect their political ambitions. Kennedy wanted an economy that worked for every citizen, but Reagan created trickle-down economics, a system that said our government is the enemy of the people, and he made special interests and corporations the driving force of the economy. He made no effort to promote participatory democracy, instead he created an ideology based on greed and anti-government sentiment.Conservatives have used this ideology to transfer the bulk of our nation’s wealth to just one percent of the population. The ideological warfare Reagan began has today brought government to a halt. This country’s political leaders cannot r...
