For decades, the idea that Richard Nixon purposely sabotaged peace talks between North and South Vietnam to embarrass Lyndon Johnson right before the 1968 presidential election were often dismissed as conspiracy theories. But with newly released Nixon papers, confirmed by conservative columnist George Will, it now appears to be fact that in 1968, Richard Nixon, as a private citizen, was able to persuade a South Vietnamese liaison to have the South walk away from peace talks brokered by President Johnson. Nixon’s interference with these negotiations violated President John Adams’s 1797 Logan Act, banning private citizens from intruding into official government negotiations with a foreign nation.

George Carlin: “When you’re born in America, you’re given a front row ticket to the freak show”

Kim Jong Un called Seth Rogan’s upcoming movie ‘The Interview’, “an act of war”. Everybody’s a critic.
In the movie, Rogen and James Franco star as two journalists who, after scoring an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, are ordered by the CIA to assassinate him. In a statement published by the state-run KCNA news agency, a foreign ministry spokesman characterized Rogen as a “gangster filmmaker” and called upon the US to block the film, according to a report from the AFP. “The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership… is a most wanton act of terror and act of war, and is absolutely intolerable,” the spokesman said, adding that the US would face a “resolute and merciless response” if it fails to ban the film, which is slated for release later this year.
