The Life and Times of Dick Nixon

The Style of Ronald Reagan

Kennedy Cover Up Continues 1/18/11
Richard Nixon's warts, misdeeds and excesses are continually exposed, thanks ironically to the White House taping system he installed, yet the facts about John F. Kennedy and the period they call Camelot continue to be covered up by a sympathetic media and a coterie of sycophants dedicated to the myth that Kennedy was a great President.

Of Dogs And Men 1/18/11
President Barack Obama calls the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles to commend him for hiring a dig-torturer. Michael Vick didn't just own and train dogs to fight but as Matt Labash of the Weekly Standard wrote "... Vick, in concert with his thuggish fellow torturers, was responsible for wetting down a female pit bull which had lost, and electrocuting it. Likewise, approximately eight dogs that did not perform well in "testing" sessions (meaning they looked to be subpar fighters), were executed "by various methods, including hanging, drowning, and slamming at least one dog's body to the ground."

Loughner was a Leftist Kook 1/18/11
The rush by the left to brand Arizona shooter Jared Lee Loughner - as an anti-government right - winger was reminiscent of a similar media ploy in 1963 where the "climate of hate" and the extreme right of Dallas were initially blamed for the assassination of JFK. That is, until J. Edgar Hoover revealed that Lee Harvey Oswald was a Communist and defector to Russia who had belonged to the "Fair Play for Cuba Committee". That was the official version anyway.

Chicago's Bill Daley 1/18/11
Let's hope Bill Daley does as good a job for Barrack Obama as he did for Al Gore in the 2000 Florida Recount, a credit miraculously missing from all his fawning media profile pieces.

2010 Best and Worst Dressed 12/31/10
Every year Hollywood designer and arbiter of fashion, Mr. Richard Blackwell, published his list of the ten best and worst dressed people in the demimonde. Mr. Blackwell has since gone to his maker, but the STONEzone refuses to let this fine tradition die. In 2008 we published our first 10 BEST AND WORST DRESSED PEOPLE in the world. It was well received. 2009 got more notice.

Why Trump Should Run in 2012 12/14/10
As I look at the crop of Republicans planning to run for the 2012 Presidential nomination, I reach one inescapable conclusion: Unlike 1988 when he flirted with it and 2000 when he seriously considered it, Donald Trump must run for President in 2012.

The Nixon Contradiction 12/14/10
The secretly recorded White House tapes of President Richard Nixon are the gift that keeps on giving. Every year, a new trove of recordings is released, more outrageous than the last. The most recent batch in which Nixon manages to malign Jews, blacks, Italians and the Irish, are a confounding contradiction.

NY Ethics Watchdog Has No Ethics 12/14/10
New York's top ethics watchdog is not leaving his job quietly, but he isn't leaving a moment too soon.

Did JFK Steal The 1960 Election? 12/7/10
Did Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley steal Illinois and thus the 1960 presidential election for John F. Kennedy? Kennedy carried Cook County, which includes Chicago, by 318,736 votes -more than double his national margin of 118,574 votes. This new book by Edmund Kallina fairly examines all sides of this intense political debate, which has vexed historians and fired up partisans since that razor-thin election. However, Kallina reaches the wrong conclusion, that is that the Illinois result wouldn't have changed the election's outcome, thus minimizing what he admits was widespread voter theft and fraud on election day.

Search For The Perfect Pizza 12/7/10
Readers of the Stonezone know I have been on a life-long search for the perfect Pizza. I've written on Pizza for the Daily Caller, the Miami WIRE and New Jersey Monthly as well as the Stonezone. I am seeking the Pizza of my youth at Phil Baker's Restaurant in my native Norwalk, Connecticut. Despite may fine pies I have yet to find the idealized version of Pizza from that spot which was torn down to make way for the extension of Route 7 from Norwalk to Danbury.

A Republican Primary For Lugar? 12/1/10
He used to be known as "Richard Nixon's favorite Mayor" when he was Mayor of Indianapolis and while the New York Times says he's a "conservative" there is little in his record to indicate this. Indiana Senator Richard Lugar has always been a "moderate" Republican and has drifted further left as time goes by. The Times also speaks of Lugar's "affection" for Ronald Reagan which wasn't reflected in his Chairmanship of Senator Howard Baker's campaign for President in 1980. While there is no doubt that Lugar is a decent man and dedicated public servant, thirty years in the Senate is enough. The election of Dan Coats to the Senate from Indiana is proof the state can sustain the election of a real conservative.

NY GOP Paid Democrat Consultant $1 Million 12/1/10
The New York GOP didn't have a very good year when it came to statewide offices. Now comes word the the New York Republican Party paid Democrat Bradley Tusk $1 million in the weeks before the election at the same time Republican candidate for State Comptroller Harry Wilson paid Tusk $500,000. And what did they get in return? Defeat. Former Aide to Illinois crook Rod Blagojevich, Tusk managed the campaign of Mike Bloomberg for mayor last year. I believe the $1 Million is a pass through from Bloomberg. What did Tusk do for the money? If the money went to help Wilson it is a serious campaign finance violation. Isn't this exactly what veteran operative John Haggerty was indicted for when Bloomberg gave $750,000 to New York's Independence party. Stay tuned.

Rumsfeld - Late Reagan Convert 12/1/10
On Thanksgiving Day Fox aired it's six part series on the American Conservative movement called "Right from the Start" narrated by Brit Hume. It is excellent with archival footage of Eisenhower, Nixon, Goldwater, Buckley and Reagan interspersed with interviews with conservative movement founders like Bill Rusher, Richard Viguerie and Phyllis Schlafly.

Parker Spitzer Tanking 12/1/10
Things are getting worse at Parker Spitzer, the CNN snooze-fest with former New York Governor and whoremonger Eliot Spitzer and "Conservative" Kathleen Parker, Benedict Arnold in a dress.

George Bush Still Doesn't Get It 11/24/10
Former President George H.W. Bush's appearance on Larry King live last night reminds one why the man was twice rejected as an candidate for the US Senate, defeated in his campaign for President in 1980 and then, once elevated to office by the good graces of Ronald Reagan, is unable to get himself re-elected. Without Ronald Reagan, Bush would be a retired oil executive in Houston. The man is likeable but his political tin-ear endures. Asked about the Tea Party, Bush says he doesn't know what they stand for and cant therefore say whether the movement is good for the country. Can the man not read?
