The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) has a Religion Commission, where socialist pastors, religious academics, and laypeople network to spread Marxist ideas through their churches, synagogues, temples, and mosques. The United States is a deeply religious country. Very early on, the CPUSA realized that if the United States was ever to be brought to socialism, religion would have to be harnessed to the task.

As the United States is primarily a Christian country, the communists began to infiltrate churches, seminaries, and theological colleges even before the Bolshevik revolution of 1917.

In Congressional testimony in July 1953, former CPUSA Chairman Ben Gitlow described how Harry Ward, later a secret party member, established the first communist front in America:

“The Methodist Federation for Social Action … was first organized by a group of Socialist, Marxist clergymen of the Methodist church headed by Dr. Harry F. Ward. … Its objective was to transform the Methodist Church and Christianity into an instrument for the achievement of socialism. It was established in 1907, 12 years before the organization of the Communist Party in the United States in 1919.”

A few days later, another high-ranking communist defector exposed Dr. Ward as a card-carrying communist, and a powerful “agent of influence” for the communist cause:

“The Methodist Federation for Social Action, headed by the Rev. Harry F. Ward, whom I have already identified as a Party member, was invaluable to the Communist Party in its united-front organizations campaign. It was invaluable because through it the Party was able to get contacts with thousands of ministers all over the country.”

That defector, Manning Johnson, also went on to reveal how the CPUSA’s Soviet masters had shifted emphasis from destroying religion to co-opting it:

“Once the tactic of infiltrating religious organizations was set by the Kremlin, the actual mechanics of implementing the ‘new line’ was a question of following the general experiences of the living church movement in Russia, where the Communists discovered that the destruction of religion could proceed much faster through infiltration of the church by Communist agents operating within the church itself.

“The Communist leadership in the United States realized that the infiltration tactic in this country would have to adapt itself to American conditions and the religious make-up peculiar to this country. In the earliest stages it was determined that with only small forces available it would be necessary to concentrate Communist agents in the seminaries and divinity schools. The practical conclusion drawn by the Red leaders was that these institutions would make it possible for a small Communist minority to influence the ideology of future clergymen in the paths most conducive to Communist purposes.”

According to Johnson, the CPUSA set about infiltrating American Christianity at every level:

“In the early 1930s the Communists instructed thousands of their members to rejoin their ancestral religious groups and to operate in cells designed to take control of churches for Communist purposes. This method was not only propounded but was executed with great success among large elements of American church life. Communists operating a double-pronged infiltration, both through elements of Communist-controlled clergy and Communist-controlled laymen, managed to pervert and weaken entire strata of religious life in the United States.”

All over the United States, CPUSA members went back to their childhood churches. Over time, many gained positions of influence. Much of this activity ramped up during the Vietnam era.

Some examples follow:

In Utah, Wayne Holley was a proud member of the Mormon Church and founder of the Joe Hill Club of the CPUSA. Holley worked for “all economic and social issues including universal health care, fair housing, jobs with justice, women’s issues, and all ‘movements for peace.’ He fought against nuclear testing at the Nevada test site, the Vietnam War, and the MX Missile Program,” according to CPUSA publication People’s World.

In Chicago, Bill Hogan, a CPUSA member and Catholic priest, joined in the national campaigns to end the U.S. war in Vietnam, was a leader in Chicago Clergy and Laity Concerned (an antiwar group), and “was one of the plaintiffs in a pair of federal lawsuits in 1974 and ’75 that sought to stop alleged Chicago Police Department harassment of political activists,” according to his obituary.

In New York, CPUSA member Rev. Richard Morford was executive director of the National Council of American–Soviet Friendship and a leader of the New Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam.

During the Vietnam war era, the American Communist movement split into Maoist, Trotskyist, and “democratic socialist” factions. The traditional CPUSA was dramatically reduced in numbers. However, far-left infiltration of seminaries and theological schools increased as thousands of young draft-dodgers opted to promote socialism in divinity school rather than fight communists in Vietnam.

Today, most of the leftist divinity professors and religious leaders come out of the 1960s Maoist and “democratic socialist” movements rather than the CPUSA per se.

However, the CPUSA did continue to make considerable progress in black-majority churches. Since the 1960s, when the CPUSA began to more deeply infiltrate the Democratic Party, a larger emphasis was put on recruiting black pastors. These pastors could be used to promote socialist policies within the Democratic Party, and to keep their congregations loyally voting for the left.

In April 2005, the CPUSA re-organized its Religious Commission with a conference in Des Moines, Iowa. The CPUSA’s People’s World newspaper quoted several participants to give a flavor of the event:

“’The word of God and communism are hand in hand,’ said Diana Sowry, a school bus driver from Ashtabula County, Ohio. … Sowry is a union activist and also active in her church, where she sings in the choir. She feels communists and others who are working to defeat the ultra-right and advance peace, social and economic justice, and socialism are ‘doing the work of the Word.’

“The Rev. Scott Marks, from New Haven, Conn., said ‘people in the pews’ cannot simply stick to ‘feel-good issues,’ but must ‘be willing to go to the wall on the real issues.’ … [Marks] is a Pentecostal minister who leads the Connecticut Center for a New Economy. For him this is doing ‘the real work’ of Jesus. ‘It’s not pie in the sky when we die,’ Marks told the World. ‘It’s how are we going to change things in the here and now.’ …

“In the session on work in local churches, the Rev. Gil Dawes, a retired volunteer pastor at Trinity Methodist Church here, emphasized that grassroots progressive religious activism has deep historical roots, and has to be re-energized today. ‘That’s where the right is way ahead of us,’ he said. …

“’People suffering will become leaders if they have a chance to put it together with other people,’ Dawes said. This kind of Bible study helped turn one congregation from fundamentalist to one of the most progressive, he said.

“In the session on Marx and religion, Paul Nelson, a Lutheran minister who teaches at a community college in Iowa, disputed the idea that Marx opposed all religion. What Marx denounced was an ‘illusory’ form of religion that served as ‘ideological cover for the exercise of aristocratic economic and political power.’”

Today’s Influence

Today’s CPUSA is still very active in the church. Here’s some examples:

Edward Carson is chairman of the Boston Communist Party and was also an editor for The Christian Century “Then and Now” blog. 

Michael Adam Reale served on the CPUSA Religious Commission in 2004–2005. Reale told the CPUSA newspaper People’s Weekly World (later changed to People’s World) in 2004:

“I personally felt led to bring into the Communist Party three friends who are active in their faiths, one a Quaker, another who is the pastor of the United Church of Christ, and the third a Jehovah’s Witness—all three had expressed an interest in the party. We all need to confront the myth that communism is anti-religion. Communism is not anti-religion—it is anti-opulence. …

“I came to the Communist Party because of my deep Quaker faith. I have become convinced (a Quaker expression) of the ‘rightness’ of Marxism.”

In 2010, Pierre Williams was secretary of the Religion Commission of the CPUSA. He received his Master of Divinity Degree from Virginia Union University in Richmond, Virginia. He also completed pastoral residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, and served as staff chaplain at Harbor Hospital, Baltimore. He is an ordained minister in the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, and has been a member of the Florida Interfaith Commission on Children and Youth

Henry Millstein is a practicing Roman Catholic and activist in several faith-based social justice organizations. He serves on the National Committee and the Religion Commission of the CPUSA.

Millstein holds a Ph.D. in Jewish Studies from University of California, Berkeley and the Graduate Theological Union, with a focus on Jewish-Christian relations, and has taught humanities and history of religion at Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, and the Graduate Theological Union.

Millstein is currently programs manager at Islamic Networks Group in San Jose. His LinkedIn profile states: “His background includes both academic and experiential acquaintance with a variety of cultures and religions, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Native American traditions. In his current position at ING-Islamic Networks Group, he brings together his experience in moving across boundaries of faith and culture with his passion for peace, nonviolence, and social justice.”

Rev. James Caldwell is one of two black pastors in the Houston Communist Party branch. He is a graduate of Phyllis Wheatley High School and Texas Southern University’s School of Public Affairs. He also attended Dallas Theological Seminary and has been an ordained minister for over 30 years.

Rev. Tim Yeager was, in 2010, chairperson of the Religion Commission of the CPUSA. He has served on the Standing Commission on Anglican and International Peace with Justice Concerns and the Advocacy Center of The Episcopal Church.

After a Christian upbringing in Iowa, Yeager went on to study Russian and History at the University of Iowa. The Vietnam War was raging then, and he became involved in the anti-war movement. 

Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum

“That opened my eyes to a whole host of issues. I moved away from Christianity and became a Unitarian. As time went on, I became a leader in left-wing student activities… I had read Karl Marx on Ludwig Feuerbach [a German philosopher and anthropologist] and decided that I had to move away from religion altogether and became a Marxist,” Yeager said in a 2015 interview in British local magazine Westcombe News.

Yeager also became chief organizer of the Communist Party in Iowa, but was drawn back to the church by communist pastor Gil Dawes. 

“I never really lost my connection to my home church in Iowa. It was part of my family. And then I met a wonderful man named Gil Dawes. He was a Methodist minister and liberation theologian who showed me what I had not really taken on board, that Christianity and socialism had much in common and so I joined his church … but I have to admit that I had not yet become a Christian again in my heart,” Yeager said in same interview.

In 2011, Yeager was ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church, and in 2012 he took on responsibility for serving a small inner-city church on the West Side of Chicago.

He currently serves at a church in London and is a member of the Communist Party of Britain.

Communists want to be Gods on Earth. Their main competition for the minds of men is revealed religion. Attempts to brutally suppress Christianity, Judaism, and Islam in the early days of the Soviet Union proved counter-productive; infiltrating and twisting religion is far more effective. This tactic has been applied all over the world and has made huge inroads in the United States.

Much of what is preached in today’s American churches has been influenced, if not dominated, by communist ideology posing as religion.

A very sad story all this.

And yet there is hope, my dears, as He rolled away the stone:

Coal Dust

The coalfields of Northeastern Pennsylvannia and South Wales occupy two ends of the Transatlantic seam, a concentration of coal separated by transatlantic drift over a span of millions of years. The areas share a more recent history that stretches back to the mid–Nineteenth Century, a period that saw a major influx of Welsh immigrants into the Wilkes-Barre /Scranton area. New arrivals drawn by the promise of work in the coalfields, often left one mining landscape for another as they confronted an area that bore a number of similarities with their homeland. Over the course of the twentieth century the mining industry in both regions suffered a similar fate, becoming obsolete largely as result of the Knox Mining disaster in Pennsylvania and a series of factors in Wales ranging from the Aberfan disaster in 1966 to the large-scale colliery closings of the Thatcherite Eighties.

These historical and geological links serve as the basis for Transatlantic Seam which juxtaposes the mining landscapes of the South Wales valleys and the Wyoming Valley in Pennsylvania. In addition to a shared history these areas confront similar problems in the present day ranging from issues of reclamation to the role of the heritage industry in the global economy. At the same time, differences become apparent in images of the two areas. The ubiquitous birches that populate the Pennsylvanian culm banks provide a contrast to what Gwyn Thomas described as the “dim, grudging grass” of the Welsh tips. Similarly, the edges of these landscapes reveal different patterns of settlement while the slag heaps themselves are subject to a variety of reclamation efforts.

The Transatlantic Seam explores these connections in hopes of inspiring a dialogue about the legacy of mining and the future of the landscapes upon which it has left its traces.

All Hail our new KING

I met a little man who wasn’t there.

The Little man on the stairs

Antigonish [I met a man who wasn’t there]

Hughes Mearns

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away…

When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door… (slam!)

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away…

God Save our KING:

I HAD A LITTLE BIRD, HER NAME WAS ENZA, I OPENED THE WINDOW, AND IN-FLU-ENZA

This little ditty was a skipping song chanted by children during 1918 and 1919.

Although WWI ended on the 11th November 1918, deaths continued into the following year and beyond.  Why? Firstly, there was the second wave of Spanish Flu (some historians believe the first wave shortened WWI by several months if not years) the virulence of which killed up to 50 million globally – nobody knows the accurate figure. And secondly, many young men who returned injured from the front died a protracted death from wounds. However today I’m writing about Spanish Flu.

This virulent pandemic seriously misrepresents Spain. It got its name when the virus migrated from France to Spain where, without the censorship of war, it was more widely reported.

Because of the different policies, some areas were particularly badly hit; Leicester and Coventry suffered high casualties – one in four deaths in 1918 were from influenza – but Manchester (over 2000 deaths in 1918 rising to 3143 by 1919) got off relatively lightly. Here, James Niven, Manchester’s Medical Officer of Health, realising the virus attacked the lungs, recommended personal sanitation and isolation if ill. He suggested closing dance halls, theatres and schools but his exhortations to avoid crowded places were ignored during celebrations for Armistice Day and Manchester deaths peaked in late 1918 and early 1919.   Overall 228,000 people in Britain were to die a particularly gruelling death for both patient and those nursing them.

Unlike other epidemics, victims were generally younger and fitter; the majority of afflicted were aged between 20 and 45. It attacked all classes not just the poor and was a particularly upsetting death starting with ‘la grippe’ before quickly developing into pneumonia or, more distressingly, heliotrope cyanosis when the skin turned lavender, mahogany coloured spots appeared on cheekbones and ears (indicating a shortage of oxygen) and a person who was well in the morning suffocated and could be dead by dinnertime.

How do you know if an ancestor was a casualty of the Spanish Flu?   Few doctors wrote influenza on a death certificate. The key clue is the timing – 1918 and early 1919. If an ancestor died during this period aged under, say, 50 and you read pneumonia or septicaemia on the death certificate, they probably died of Spanish flu. And yes, I have spotted it on death certificates in my family….

But why the Spainish Flu:

In The name of God, Amen

Why The great flu after the Great War was called the Spainish flu.

I Wear The Chain I Forged In Life

I HAD A LITTLE BIRD, HER NAME WAS ENZA, I OPENED THE WINDOW, AND IN-FLU-ENZA

This little ditty was a skipping song chanted by children during 1918 and 1919.

Although WWI ended on the 11th November 1918, deaths continued into the following year and beyond.  Why? Firstly, there was the second wave of Spanish Flu (some historians believe the first wave shortened WWI by several months if not years) the virulence of which killed up to 50 million globally – nobody knows the accurate figure. And secondly, many young men who returned injured from the front died a protracted death from wounds. However today I’m writing about Spanish Flu.

This virulent pandemic seriously misrepresents Spain. It got its name when the virus migrated from France to Spain where, without the censorship of war, it was more widely reported.

Because of the different policies, some areas were particularly badly hit; Leicester and Coventry suffered high casualties – one in four deaths in 1918 were from influenza – but Manchester (over 2000 deaths in 1918 rising to 3143 by 1919) got off relatively lightly. Here, James Niven, Manchester’s Medical Officer of Health, realising the virus attacked the lungs, recommended personal sanitation and isolation if ill. He suggested closing dance halls, theatres and schools but his exhortations to avoid crowded places were ignored during celebrations for Armistice Day and Manchester deaths peaked in late 1918 and early 1919.   Overall 228,000 people in Britain were to die a particularly gruelling death for both patient and those nursing them.

Unlike other epidemics, victims were generally younger and fitter; the majority of afflicted were aged between 20 and 45. It attacked all classes not just the poor and was a particularly upsetting death starting with ‘la grippe’ before quickly developing into pneumonia or, more distressingly, heliotrope cyanosis when the skin turned lavender, mahogany coloured spots appeared on cheekbones and ears (indicating a shortage of oxygen) and a person who was well in the morning suffocated and could be dead by dinnertime.

How do you know if an ancestor was a casualty of the Spanish Flu?   Few doctors wrote influenza on a death certificate. The key clue is the timing – 1918 and early 1919. If an ancestor died during this period aged under, say, 50 and you read pneumonia or septicaemia on the death certificate, they probably died of Spanish flu. And yes, I have spotted it on death certificates in my family….

But why the Spainish Flu:

In The name of God, Amen

All Hail our new KING

The Waffen SS comes to Palm Beach

The SS comes to Palm Beach:

To obtain a criminal search warrant, the government must identify 1) the specific item to be seized; 2) the specific location of that item; and 3) that specific item is at that specific location at that precise moment.

This evidence is typically obtained in one of two ways: 1) a Title 3 wiretap intercepting conversations and/or 2) a well-placed source giving real-time information to law enforcement.At Mar-a-Lago, Trump is surrounded by 2 types of people: 1) political loyalists 2) law enforcement officers in the Secret Service  

Only the LE officers would have an ethical and/or legal duty to report observations of criminal conduct to fellow law enforcement officers.

Therefore, it would seem more likely than not that the probable cause for the search warrant was based on information provided by the President’s Secret Service security detail.

~~Our Ubiquitous Presence

~~

Our Queen

~~

Our Queen now 70 years on

~~

Simply the best President we could ever hope to have

Ca Depend the French, always the men with the pithy phrase, say~~toujours, ca depend.

Money

Ca depend, ca depend.

As to capital markets, toujours, ca depend.

The Kaffeeklatsch thanks Chris for his note this Tuesday morning about taking profits off market table.

We think this:

Individual investors who are inattentive to their own holdings and leave determinations about those holdings to others, deserve to get burned when the fire comes. After all, if you haven’t the time to care about the disposition of your own money, are you mentally competent?

What sort of fire will come? And when?

A correction, of some kind, has been long overdue. A correction will come. What does that mean?

The correction anticipates that stocks and bonds, as capital asset classes, are overbought. As an academic construct, that is beyond any debate. The past 5 years have seen an unprecedented run up in liquid capital assets–less so in hard, tangible, assets such as real estate… which is arguably under priced as a class.

Members have been cautioned here for over 3 years to not buy into the instant pricing points..no matter how much more they may yet appreciate.

Is is time to panic–no.

Is it time to take some profits off table as the writer contends? IF you need the money and can afford the tax bite, perhaps.

It’s difficult to write about finances for a general audience because average investors, who’ve no idea what they are talking about, are fixated by what the generic asset markets will do as against traders, who are fixated by what MY assets will do. These are 2, distinctly different, concerns.

Newsgirls and bar flies kibitz about what “the market did today.” Traders have no interest in “the market”….they ask instead…”what did MY money do today?” Distinctly different questions.. Profoundly different.

Consider that if you are in it for the long haul and you own principally high end blue chip holdings, you pretty much can’t lose. At the height of the Panica of 2008, the really good stocks barely fluttered, quickly recouped any loses and proceeded from there on an unbroken 5 year run higher.

THE caveat: Complicating our calculations is the comparatively new factor of the effects of QE policies on capital asset pricings and the concomitant, deeply embedded, underlying inflation inherent in those pricings, It is true that the best thermometer of the health of the nation is generally the condition of equity prices. However, when those prices are, in part at least, held aloft by QE simulations, it’s hard to get a true feel for where things actually are on the thermometer.

IF you need the money, take some winnings off table. IF you need it. Asset holders have to look to their individual needs and future plans. The market is not a monolith and she means, often strikingly, different things to different asset holders.

Know your goals, hold to them and don’t be swayed by generalized statements about the markets. Generalizations are, almost always, wrong. Your assets belong to you–tend to them prudently yourself.

So, as to the subject of taking profits off table now.. toujours, ca depend….what are your needs, what are your goals? As a true generalization, all capital assets will one day be sold–otherwise–what’s the point?

Put to the quick, don’t buy into the current equity markets, as they are, beyond dispute, either what is called, fully priced, or very much overpriced. Do not be lured in by the temptation to not miss the run up–you’ve already long ago missed it. You were late to that dance by early summer 2009.

Just as there is always another horse race, likewise, there is always another asset pricings run up. Instead of fretting on spilled milk, set your capital aside in non-committed cash funds and wait for the correction..after which….buy rapaciously, with all 4 feet.

Learn to distinguish between the hackneyed generalizations and the comparative handful of always true, immutable, generalizations such as…all money eventually gets spent, we are all eventually going to die, and it is, always, your job to tend to your own money–not anyone some other guy’s.

Jack

Abortion is not now murder in America. Murder is a legal term. Abortion used to be murder in America because it used to be illegal. Abortion can once again be murder in America if the act itself is once again held to be illegal.

Abortion is not now murder in America. Murder is a legal term. Abortion used to be murder in America because it used to be illegal. Abortion can once again be murder in America if the act itself is once again held to be illegal.

John Daniel BEGG

And let’s be clear: If a woman receives treatment for say, ovarian cancer, and the treatment ends up killing her baby, that is not considered abortion, which is the direct deliberate killing of a baby.

IN THE NAME OF GOD.

Poor Jo~Jo

“Regret And Anxiety”: Dems Quietly Panicking, Don’t Want Biden To Face Trump In 2024

The New York Times – the establishment mouthpiece of record – has thrown President Biden under the bus.

After interviewing “50 Democratic officials, from county leaders to members of Congress, as well as disappointed voters who backed Mr. Biden in 2020,” the Times reports that the Democratic party is “alarmed about Republicans’ rising strength and extraordinarily pessimistic about an immediate path forward.”

In short, time to bench Biden – who “should announce his intent not to seek re-election in ’24 right after the midterms,” according to Steve Simeonidis, a Democratic National Committee member from Miami.

To say our country was on the right track would flagrantly depart from reality,” he said. And top Democrats in general are feeling the same, it would appear.

Well. well. I must say:

On removing Jo~Jo:

Maybe yes, maybe no, but November will be a bloodbath unrelenting and I for one fail to see how dropping Jo-Jo will address the central issue of that Party–how to distance itself from the rabid communism espoused by its central mass.

I’ve known Jo-Jo in passing for years and he always struck me as a standard brand Democratic Party thief with an eye for the main chance who came here and stayed here, in the main, to steal as much money as possible and to get re-elected in order to steal even more money.

To not put too fine a point on it, Jo-Jo’s administration represents what is now the center mass of his Party~~if it did not, he would not do as he does.

To blame him and to discard him for representing that center mass is, as always is, emblematic of the mantra of that Party~~if you’re not a winner, you’re gone, but as also always is, this solution to the problem entirely misses the point which is that in order to change the detestation of that Party in the eyes of The Normal American People, that center mass must remove itself~~a solution that the core of that Party simply will not do.

Poor Jo~Jo

In the Name of God Amen.

Lester Piggott~~The most savage jockey to ever put a boot over a horse has died~~~let him now ride in Heaven

Lester Piggott obituary

One of the greatest British jockeys who won the Derby nine times

Lester Piggott, who has died aged 86, was regarded by many as the finest jockey ever to ride on British turf. His record in major races is unlikely to be surpassed. No other 20th-century jockey came close to his achievement. In all, he rode 4,493 winners in Britain and more than 850 elsewhere during a career that spanned 47 years, with major successes in France, Ireland, the US, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Wherever he travelled, he was feted in a manner unique for a jockey. However, his career was dogged by controversy, leading to a jail sentence for tax fraud in 1987 and the withdrawal of his OBE.

Willie Carson, left, and Frankie Dettori, right, have paid tribute to Lester Piggott, pictured at Doncaster races.

Born in Wantage, Oxfordshire, Lester came from a horseracing family that stretched back over six generations, including such famous names as John Day, Tom Cannon and Fred Rickaby. His grandfather, Ernie Piggott, was a champion steeplechaser who won the Grand National three times, while his father, Keith, was one of the finest National Hunt jockeys of the pre-second world war era and won the Champion Hurdle in 1939 on African’s Sister. He was later to train a Grand National winner, Ayala, in 1963. Lester’s mother, Iris (nee Rickaby), came from the Rickaby racing dynasty.

The young Lester was always determined to ride on the flat, though he was 5ft 7in, with a natural weight of 10st 7lb (67kg) in the 1950s. His inspiration was the great 19th-century jockey Fred Archer, who starved himself to keep his weight down and used brutal purgatives throughout his career before killing himself at the age of 29. Archer was nicknamed “the Tinman” because of his love of money. Money was also to be one of Piggott’s greatest motivations.

Piggott first sat on a racehorse at the age of seven. On his 12th birthday, he became apprenticed to his father, who was now training at Lambourn, Berkshire. His schooling continued privately, two or three days a week; his first ride came on a horse called The Chase at Salisbury on 7 April 1948. Four months later, he rode his first winner on the same horse at Haydock, carrying 6st 9lb (42kg). Nowadays, no one under the age of 16 is permitted to ride in public.

In 1950 he had already become champion apprentice, but his determined, sometimes reckless riding was beginning to aggravate fellow riders and attract the attention of stewards. His first major punishment followed an altercation with the Australian jockey Scobie Breasley at Newbury in October 1950. Piggott’s mount, Barnacle, was disqualified and, to his great indignation, he was suspended for the rest of the season.

His first mount in the Derby came in 1951 on the temperamental colt Zucchero, which finished unplaced. The following year, he finished second on Gay Time, and in 1954 won the first of his nine Derbys on Never Say Die. Already laconic and introspective, Piggott infuriated the press by commenting that it was “just another race”.

Two weeks later at Royal Ascot, he encountered the first major setback to his career when the stewards arraigned him for reckless riding, following a complaint by Sir Gordon Richards. He was suspended for six months and told that he must leave the guardianship of his father, who was considered a bad influence, and be apprenticed to a Newmarket trainer. It took years for Piggott to get over this deprivation, which, like his jail sentence later in life, he regarded as a waste of time.

Lester Piggott in October 2015.

By now, two characteristics had surfaced that were to become dominant. One was his alleged meanness, which became legendary, even if many of the stories were apocryphal. A fine example involved a stable lad who looked after a horse on which Piggott had recently won.

“Excuse me, Lester,” he addressed the great man, “could you see your way to dropping me £1 for the winner I ‘did’ you?”
“Uh?” replied Piggott.
“Would you give me £1 for that winner I did you?”
“I can’t hear,” muttered Piggott, “that’s my bad ear.”
The lad moved round to the other side, and now emboldened, shouted: “What about a couple of quid for that winner I did you?”
“Can’t hear,” replied Piggott. “Try the £1 ear again!”

His deafness was evident early in life but became worse as he spent increasing periods of time reducing his weight in saunas and flying in light aircraft from meeting to meeting. It also made him increasingly reclusive to all but his family and close friends.

At the end of his suspension, an opportunity arose that was to reshape his life. When Richards retired because of injury, the leading stable of Noel Murless, at Newmarket, was left without a jockey. After three others – one of them Breasley – had surprisingly turned down the job, Piggott was appointed. It was a partnership that was to thrive for 12 years.

Murless was a determined, dedicated trainer of the old school. He was endlessly patient with his horses and would not allow them to be abused by jockeys. Piggott already had a reputation of being ruthless with the whip. Ground rules were laid down and Piggott treated his new employer with the respect that he demanded.

Over the coming years, both men reached the pinnacles of their professions. Murless became champion trainer in four years out of five between 1957 and 1961, and a further four times subsequently. Piggott, meanwhile, set about establishing his classic record, becoming champion jockey for the first of 11 times in 1960. It was always supposed that increasing weight would eventually destroy his career, but Piggott overcame this by largely giving up eating. He existed on the most stringent diet and was still able to ride at 8st 7lb (54kg) at the end of his career, 35 years later.

Piggott and Murless’s first great year together was 1957, when Crepello won the 2000 Guineas and Derby, and Carrozza won the Oaks in the Queen’s colours. Many, including Murless and Richards, felt that Piggott’s ride on Carrozza was the greatest of his career. It certainly endeared him to the Queen, and in 1975 he was appointed OBE.

The trainer and jockey enjoyed notable success with Prince Aly Khan’s brilliant grey filly Petite Etoile, but her defeat in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes evoked huge controversy. At the time, Piggott was accused of giving the filly too much ground to make up, but many years later Breasley claimed that he pinned Piggott to the rails to settle an old score. In fact, both versions were greatly exaggerated. The truth was that Petite Etoile failed to stay the distance.

Piggott was perhaps at the height of his powers in 1965, when he rode eight winners at Royal Ascot and cost bookmakers millions of pounds. He was increasingly in demand, notably by the Irish trainer Vincent O’Brien. A conflict arose between his desire to ride for O’Brien and others in big races, and his retainer to ride for Murless. As always, Piggott wanted the best of both worlds, but Murless would not countenance his demands to be “let off” when required. The partnership ended in 1966 and Piggott, soon after, reshaped the future of riding contracts.

Between 1967 and 1974 he rode as a freelance all over Europe, while in 1977 he tied himself to riding for Robert Sangster. Until then, jockeys’ contracts with owners rather than trainers were rare, whereas now they are the norm in the case of wealthy Arab owners. Piggott’s vision earned the top jockeys millions of pounds in the 1980s and 90s.

A side-effect of Piggott’s freelance status was an upsurge in his predatory nature. No jockey was safe on a Derby runner if Piggott was without a fancied ride. His rapacity came to a head when he contrived to secure the mount on Roberto, trained by O’Brien, in 1972, on the grounds that O’Brien’s jockey, Bill Williamson, was unfit following a shoulder injury.

Piggott rode a brilliant race to win in a photo-finish, but opinions were divided over the morality of his engagement, and Williamson never forgave him. Piggott had already ridden two Derby winners for O’Brien in Sir Ivor – “this is a racing machine,” he told O’Brien – and Nijinsky, arguably the two best colts he ever rode. His mastery of the unique Epsom course was famous and his riding of The Minstrel for O’Brien in 1977 became part of Derby lore.

He was less successful in Europe’s richest race, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp, and it took 17 attempts to secure his first success, on Rheingold in 1973. But on Alleged, trained by O’Brien, he won the great race in 1977 and 1978, showing masterful judgment on both occasions.

Despite the success they had shared, by 1980 O’Brien and Sangster, his principal patron, had become weary of Piggott’s whimsical ways, personal agenda and excessive financial demands. To Piggott’s chagrin, they ended his contract and employed the much younger Irishman Pat Eddery.

Piggott, predictably, bounced back and secured the position as stable jockey to Henry Cecil, who had been champion trainer in three of the past five years. For Piggott, it meant not only a return to the Warren Place stables at Newmarket, which Cecil had inherited from his father-in-law, Murless, but also a return to being champion jockey for the first time in 10 years.

However, the success of the new team over the next three years led to Piggott’s downfall. A copy of a letter written by Cecil to his owners in 1982 relating to special payments and rewards for Piggott was sold to a Fleet Street newspaper. Its publication led to punishment for Cecil, but also the prosecution of Piggott for tax evasion.

This volcano took five years to erupt. Meanwhile, Piggott split with Cecil in 1984 following a rift with the Wildenstein family, a leading force in French racing, who demanded that other jockeys should ride their horses. Piggott spent what he intended to be his final year as a jockey riding as a freelance, and brought down the curtain at Nottingham on 29 October 1985. He was granted a licence to train under Jockey Club rules and set up his new business at the Eve Lodge Stables, Newmarket, which he had built several years earlier.

Within three months his world was to fall apart. His home was raided by police and Inland Revenue officers, and accounts and documents were seized. He was arrested and charged with making a false statement, and in October 1987 the case came to court at Ipswich.

There were 10 charges, alleging that Piggott had failed to declare income of more than £3m on which he had evaded tax of around £1.7m. He was found guilty and sentenced to three years’ imprisonment, a record for tax evasion. He spent his incarceration at Highpoint prison, near Haverhill, less than 20 miles from Newmarket, and was released after 12 months.

While Piggott was in prison, the racing stable was managed by his wife, Susan (nee Armstrong), the daughter of a Newmarket trainer, whom he had married in 1960. She continued to hold the training licence upon his release. Piggott was outwardly unemotional throughout his ordeal, but was bitterly hurt by the withdrawal of his OBE.

For the following two years, he kept a relatively low profile, but in October 1990 he stunned the racing world by applying for a renewal of his jockey’s licence. He resumed riding at Leicester the following week, rode a winner at Chepstow the following day, and within 12 days had ridden one of his greatest races to win the Breeders’ Cup Mile at Belmont Park, New York, worth $500,000, on Royal Academy, trained by his old ally O’Brien.

His comeback was a rollercoaster lasting a further four seasons, and in 1992 included a 30th classic success on Rodrigo de Triano in the 2000 Guineas. In the spring of 1995, he did not renew his licence and finally, in September of that year, he admitted that his career was at an end.

As Piggott entered his ninth decade there were calls from some in the racing fraternity not only for the restoration of his OBE, but for him to be knighted. Though neither of those things happened, at the 2017 Royal Ascot meeting there was a warm greeting from the Queen which suggested that she had, personally at least, forgiven him.

In 2012, Piggott left the marital home to live with Barbara FitzGerald in Geneva, an arrangement to which his wife gave her public blessing. He is survived by her, by Susan, their daughters, Maureen and Tracy, and his son, Jamie, by his former assistant Anna Ludlow.

SALEM SOFTNESS FRESHENS YOUR TASTE

Five Interesting Facts About Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis That You Probably Didn’t Know

She was without question one of the most glamorous women of the Twentieth Century. The widow of both a President of the United States and of one of the world’s wealthiest businessmen, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis practically defined style.
We know about the pillbox hats and the White House redecorating program. Here are some fun and interesting facts about Jackie Kennedy that you probably don’t know.



First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy
The White House
1. As a Teenager She Spent Several Summers Feeding Chickens
One would be hard pressed to come up with a better image of a woman of breeding than Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. She was born Jacqueline Lee Bouvier on July 28, 1929, in Southampton, Long Island. Her parents, Janet and Jack Bouvier, were from New York City, however, and that was where Jackie and her younger sister Lee were raised. Jackie was to make New York her home for most of her life and was very much a city girl.
By 1940 Jackie’s parents had divorced, and in 1942 her mother married Hugh D. Auchincloss, who was born on a farm. Granted that farm was Hammersmith Farm in tony Newport, Rhode Island, with over 75 acres and a manor house consisting of 28 rooms — large enough for John and Jackie Kennedy to hold their wedding reception there in 1953. The property was nevertheless a working farm, which during World War II provided victuals for Newport’s thriving naval base. Jackie spent several summers there as a teenager, and because the war had left Auchincloss short-handed, it fell to her to feed the farm’s 2,000 chickens and gather up their eggs. When she wasn’t doing farm chores Jackie would go down to the bay and watch the ships coming in and out of the naval base.

2. She Was a Chain Smoker
Almost as unimaginable as Jackie Kennedy having a bag of chicken feed in her hand is her having a cigarette, but Jackie Kennedy had a three-pack-a-day habit that lasted for over forty years. Photographs of her smoking (or getting ready to) exist but they are extremely rare. One of the reasons was her prerogative as First Lady. If she told people not to take a photo, then no photograph was taken. She also made sure that people didn’t refer to her habit in print, either. When William Manchester was writing The Death of a President , he made a reference to Jackie at Parkside Hospital fishing a cigarette out of her purse. It was one of many passages Jackie insisted that he cut out of the final draft.
Those who knew her, though, were well aware of her habit. Lyndon Johnson, for example, always made sure that the LBJ Ranch was well-stocked with Salems — Mrs. Kennedy’s brand of choice — whenever she visited.
After she married Aristotle Onassis, Jackie became a bit less protective of her image, but she still smoked, often with the aid of a cigarette holder. She only quit at the request of her daughter Caroline, after having been diagnosed in early 1994 with non-Hodgkins’ lymphoma. Sadly, it was too little too late. She died in May of that year at age 64.

3. She Was a Civil War Buff
Jacqueline Kennedy was very much the Francophile. Her father’s family, the Bouviers, were French, of course. While at Vassar, she spent her junior year abroad studying at the Sorbonne (though the program was actually sponsored by Smith College) and upon her return to the States, transferred to George Washington University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in French literature. Her thorough knowledge of French history dovetailed nicely with JFK’s knowledge about Great Britain.
One interest the two Kennedys had in common, however, was American history and the American Civil War in particular. According to biographer Barbara Leaming, when Jackie found a new Civil War book to read, JFK would often snatch it away from her and go about reading it himself. When they visited Camp David in Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains, they sometimes would fly to nearby Antietam or up to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to view the battlefields.
4. A Month Before JFK Was Shot, She Was with Onassis
Nineteen sixty-three was not a happy year for Jacqueline Kennedy. It had, however, begun with a lot of promise. In late 1962 Jackie learned that she was pregnant with her fourth child (her first, a daughter, was stillborn in 1956) and preparations were being made to accommodate the new arrival.

Unfortunately that arrival came six weeks early. On August 7, 1963, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, weighing a mere four pounds, was born at the hospital at Otis Air Force Base on Cape Cod. Doctors noted that he had difficulty breathing and determined that he had hyaline membrane disease. Though the baby was transferred to two different hospitals in Boston, where they had better facilities, he lived less than forty-eight hours. Jackie and JFK were understandably devastated, and Jackie fell into a serious depression.
To cheer her up, Jackie’s sister, Lee Radziwill, spoke with her friend — and current lover — Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, and asked if it would be possible for Jackie to take a little vacation with her in Greece. Onassis said of course, and offered to put his 325-foot luxury yacht, the Christina, at the women’s disposal, while he would stay onshore. Jackie said nonsense. She would be a very rude guest indeed not to allow her host aboard his own ship. Onassis could come, too.
When JFK heard about the arrangement, he was rankled, not so much because of Onassis’ womanizing ways (and the speculations in the press about the tycoon’s relationship with his sister-in-law) but because at the time Onassis was no particular friend of the United States. Just recently, for example, Onassis had had to fork over $7 million as a settlement to avoid having the U.S. Maritime Commission prosecute him for reneging on a promise to keep under American registry fourteen ships he had bought from the United States Government. JFK was also worried that the First Lady’s trip would smack of jet-setting. When he saw how much Jackie was looking forward to the trip, however, he ultimately gave it his blessing, though to buy himself a little political insurance, he asked Lee’s husband Stas to go, too, along with Undersecretary of Commerce Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., and his wife, just so the vacation wouldn’t look like some sort of a playboy cruise.

Jackie left on October 1 and toured for about two and a half weeks, visiting Lesbos, Crete, and other ports of call including Onassis’ private island Skorpios, which he had just recently purchased. At the conclusion of the trip, she spent a few days in Morocco as the guest of King Hassan II before returning to Washington on October 17. Shortly after her return the Kennedys started making plans for a political trip to Texas.
5. Between Jack and Ari There Was Bobby — and Charles Addams
Between November 22, 1963, and the end of 1968, the Widow Kennedy was romantically involved with several men, one of whom apparently was her brother-in-law Bobby, at the time a married father of eight and counting. Drawn together by mutual grief much like Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher were after the death of Taylor’s husband Mike Todd, Bobby and Jackie at first merely provided each other emotional support. A number of Jackie’s biographers, however, insist that by late 1964 or early 1965, their relationship had blossomed into a full-scale romance, often with physical contact that went beyond mere familial affection. Though their opportunities to see each other were understandably limited, their relationship really only ended with Bobby’s assassination on June 5, 1968.

Five Interesting Facts About Queen Victoria That You Probably Didn’t Know
Less shocking perhaps but certainly no less unusual was Jackie’s relationship with New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams, best known for his creation of Morticia, Gomez, and the other ghoulish characters that became known as the Addams Family. Already twice divorced by the time he started dating Jackie, Addams loved being seen in the company beautiful and famous women, and also counted Greta Garbo and Joan Fontaine among his love interests.
Addams was without a doubt one of the most charming eccentrics ever to grace New York society. By all accounts a gentle and kind-hearted man, he frequently embraced the macabre in his personal life as well as in his cartoons. He married his third wife Tee in a pet cemetery, for example, and lived for many years in a penthouse above a twelve-story apartment building — essentially the thirteenth floor — where he collected medieval weapons and other relics including a suit of armor, the helmet of which he would sometimes wear along with a dinner jacket.
Jackie was apparently quite a fan of Addams’ work, saying at one point that she had more in common with Morticia than most people realized. But fan or no, becoming the third Mrs. Charles Addams was not in the cards. On October 20, 1968, Jackie wed Aristotle Onassis.

For now, I’ll say this–I do think that Francis took a look at his position and thought something like this–I am 77, I have one lung, I am not well–what do I want to do with the years I have left–get all involved in the banking scandal at Vatican Bank–or the problem with homosexual priests–or do I want to go out among the people and live as Jesus lived–after all the Pope represents Jesus here on earth–I have decided to go among the poor and let the enormous bureaucracy take care of the PR problems–this is how I think his mind works–as he was away in South America his whole career, my brother doesn’t know Francis and can’t say much about him but I think Pope recognizes that he–like the American President and the English Crown as we’ve discussed in our notes, Karen, –are symbols–Pope is supposed to be a symbol of Jesus on earth. Queen a symbol of England. Our President a symbol of America.That’s where it gets tough–the Church has had right wing and left wing Popes but all of them have written notes of this sort reminding the rich to care for the poor, reminding the rich that the poor have a right to form guilds and unions and reminding the rich of their Christian charitable obligations–it is Pope’s duty to be a champion of the poor.And, this has always been tough sledding –in Europe the unions were controlled by the communists– whereas in America the unions are controlled by the Mafia–so the Popes have always had a difficult time getting out their message of the need for Christian charity without appearing to be favoring communists or Mafia.As in the earlier question–I would caution Pope Francis to advocate for the employment of the poor at good jobs and train them to be independent rather than appearing to get tied up in some tired social leveling gambit–now that would have been creative for Pope to say–“hey rich guys–employ some poor guys.”That said–it remains to be seen how he develops–but remember this–he was elected King by his fellow Princes of the Church and to that extent he is representative of the majority point of view at Rome–or else he would not have got into office.
