What Mistakes Nixon Made

By Bob Barney

As the Obama scandal grows, the incompetence of the EOE president-in training showing, what becomes obvious to the historian is the mistakes that Richard Nixon made when he found himself in a similar situation. Obama, whose administration has been racked the scandal and stupidity, as well as mafia style Chicago politics has shown itself to be an enemy of the people, the press, and the church. It has struck out as boldly as any Stalinistic regime against all perceived enemies, and yet has basically remained intact.

The question is why? What could the Nixon administration have learned from this current occupant of the White House? I have come up with a short list.

I KNEW A commentary by Bob Barney

By Bob Barney - The Plain   Originally Published in 2013

NwoWhen Edward Snowden came forward to identify himself as the leaker of the National Security Agency spying programs, politicians and the media alike, from left to right have been working overtime to discredit the man who some actually view as a hero for revealing crucial information the government had kept secret. Apparently, if you think hiding information about spying on Americans is new, and that it took some 29 year-old nobody to reveal these secrets, then you are a part of the great silent majority of Americans who have kept themselves in the dark. The real problem is not that our government is spying on us, it is that this has been known to anyone with a micron of a brain since the 1970's! I am amazed at the fact that I could be Edward Snowden- and have never worked for the NSA, CIA or the United States Government!  In fact, I know of many more secrets than he has revealed, and have known many of them since the 1970's!

For example: I knew all of this (with links to the stories):

In the 1970's I knew that:

1   Kennedy had the President of South Vietnam assassinated because he was becoming a national patriot. President Johnson believed what Richard Nixon always knew: that the Kennedy White House did not merely tolerate or encourage the murder of Ngo Dinh Diem, but organized and executed it because he was turning against USA policies that would eventually end up in the slaughter of some 60,000 young American drafted, and tens of thousands more maimed for life! It's part of the record. I know it from reading, not from working for Uncle Sam. Three weeks later, Kennedy fulfilled Jesus' prophecy: “Those who live by the sword, will die by the sword” when he himself was gunned down in Dallas. Oh, by the way, anyone with a brain that can connect three dots knows what and who was behind that....

Opinion Abolish the IRS

Recent news that the Internal Revenue Service has been enforcing its already inscrutable doctrine with caprice and venom — directed at conservative groups, Republican donors, and supporters of Israel, among others — confirms the worst suspicions of many Americans, of all political affiliations.

There is a lot of talk in Washington, and across the country, of a desire to reach bipartisan accord and accomplish great things. Here is an opportunity for just that.

Over the course of several election cycles, what was once a fringe notion advanced by long-shot candidates (Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul, please call your offices — or call each other, or call me, as you wish) has crept closer to the mainstream. To wit, it is time to abolish the IRS.

The very title “Internal Revenue Service” contains multiple falsehoods. First off, the IRS is not solely concerned with revenues that are “internal.” Anomalous among the nations of the world, America’s tax authority assumes for itself power over citizens, their families, and “U.S. persons” living abroad, requiring them to file and pay taxes at U.S. rates, even if they have not set foot on American soil in decades — or ever. “Taxation without representation,” indeed.

Wherever in the world your eyes find these words, the IRS very likely believes it has business with you. If you are married or related to an American, or in business with one, or if you have held U.S. residency or even a visa at some time, the IRS can compel your financial institution to provide information on your assets and activities, threatening overwhelming sanctions for non-compliance.

America's Chickens have come home to roost and poop! Updated!

Bush invited then President-Elect Barack Obama and former Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter for a Meeting and Lunch at The White House.

By Bob Barney
"America's chickens, have come home, to roost," stated a now-famous black Christian pastor and ex-pal of Barack Obama. How accurate that man was! No, I am not talking about 9-11 and the Muslim attack on America and her people. I am talking about America's 75-year policy of ignoring God's Word and following a multi-cultural rationalization.
In the book of Jeremiah, God says "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain." This is exactly what American politicians, leaders and educators have done to our country.
In my recent column on the real cause of the economic meltdown, I proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that America's pandering to multi-culturalism, especially to the black and Hispanic people has led to our recent economic collapse and friends. It is going to get worse, unless we stop and listen to what our God has to say to us. These are NOT racist comments, these are realistic comments! It is not racist to choose right from wrong, positive versus negative.
Truthfully, the best thing that could ever happen to black Americans would be to learn how to be an "American." Italians, for example, have been able to do it, and they were hated in their day more than blacks are today. My grandmother, born in Italy was called a "macaroni" bender in the second grade! The Italians learned how to become "American." The American way works, and when our age-old, Christian-based values are followed, everyone will succeed! We do not do the black race any favor pandering to its needs.
Bill Cosby, who is routinely pounced on by the liberals, white and black, has it right. He understands that to succeed, you follow the example of what works. Black culture does not work! Hip Hop gangster baggy-pant thugs are thugs!
America is a Christian nation, and as long as it remains a Christian nation, we will survive any war, any depression any calamity. Multi-culturalism is what was being talked about when God called His people out of Egypt, which is a type of sin, with Pharaoh being a type of Satan. God said:
"When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits [demons], or a wizard, or a necromancer [one who claims to communicate with the dead]. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God" (Deuteronomy 18:9-13).
In plain English, we are not to try and learn other cultures to make us more modern. Other people are to learn our cultures, our ways and our laws!

Millions do not know who it was who issued this command to Moses. Believe it or not, it was the member of the divine Godhead, called "Elohim" in Genesis who became Jesus Christ of your New Testament! Here is the proof: 
"In the beginning was the Word [Greek: Logos, meaning Spokesman"], and the Word was with God [Theos, the Greek equivalent of Elohim, meaning more than One] and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him [He was the CREATOR of Genesis!]; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own [the Jews], and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" (John 1:12).

There is no possibility of misunderstanding or misinterpreting these verses of your Bible! Jesus Christ of Nazareth was the GOD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT! He said to the Jews, "Before Abraham was, I AM" (John 8:58). He said to Moses, who asked him his name, tell the people that "I AM hath sent me unto you." (Exodus 3:14). Look it up for yourself.

There are millions of hard-working, Christian blacks that are as American as you and I, that have fought for this country, but more importantly, live by the words of our God. This is what America was really about. Yes, our forefathers did not want an established religion, but they wanted a religious nation! They sought a Judeo-Christian nation, following sound Biblical doctrines. God made a promise that when we did not follow His laws and "And walked in the statutes of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made. And the children of Israel (see who Israel really is in your Bible!) did secretly those things that were not right against the LORD their God (2 Kings 17:8).  
What have we been doing as a nation? We have been turning away from God and not turning to God.
"And they shall turn away their ears from the truth and shall be turned unto fables." (II Timothy 4:4)

Now comes news of a result from a new poll. It disturbs the liberals and the politically correct, but anyone who is honest, black, white, purple, red or yellow, understands the root cause of the shocking findings! Yahoo News reports today:
WASHINGTON (AP) – Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost Barack Obama the White House if the election is close, according to an AP-Yahoo News poll that found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks – many calling them "lazy," "violent," responsible for their own troubles. The poll, conducted with Stanford University, suggests that the percentage of voters who may turn away from Obama due to his race could easily be larger than the final difference between the candidates in 2004 – about two and one-half percentage points.

The survey has even more findings. "Forty percent of all white Americans hold at least a partly negative view toward blacks, and that includes many Democrats and independents. More than a third of all white Democrats and independents – voters Obama can't win the White House without – agreed with at least one negative adjective about blacks, according to the survey, and they are significantly less likely to vote for Obama than those who don't have such views." 
The survey also focused on the racial attitudes of independent voters because they are likely to decide the election. Many Republicans harbor prejudices, too, but the survey found they weren't voting against Obama on account of his race. Most Republicans wouldn't vote for any Democrat for president – white, black or brown.
Not all whites are prejudiced. Indeed, more whites say good things about blacks then say bad things, the poll shows. Many whites who see blacks in a negative light are still willing or even eager to vote for Obama. On the other side of the racial question, the Illinois Democrat is drawing almost unanimous support from blacks, the poll shows and supports a belief that most know that blacks distrust whites in overwhelming numbers. In other words, racism goes both ways.

AP went on with this quote: "We still don't like black people," said John Clouse, 57, reflecting the sentiments of his pals gathered at a coffee shop in Somerset, Ohio. Given a choice of several positive and negative adjectives that might describe blacks, 20 percent of all whites said the word "violent" strongly applied. Among other words, 22 percent agreed with "boastful," 29 percent "complaining," 13 percent "lazy" and 11 percent "irresponsible." When asked about positive adjectives, whites were more likely to stay on the fence than give a strongly positive assessment. More than a quarter of white Democrats agree that "if blacks would only try harder, they could be just as well off as whites.” Those who agreed with that statement were much less likely to back Obama than those who didn’t. Among white independents, racial stereotyping is not uncommon. For instance, while about 20 percent of independent voters called blacks "intelligent" or "smart," more than one third latched on the adjective "complaining" and 24 percent said blacks were "violent." Nearly four in 10 white independents agreed that blacks would be better off if they "try harder." (excerpt from the AP story) (The survey of 2,227 adults was conducted Aug. 27 to Sept. 5. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.1 percentage points.)

Erik Eckholm's column, "Plight Deepens for Black Men, Studies Warn" at states: "Black men in the United States face a far more dire situation than is portrayed ... . [N]ew studies, by experts at Columbia, Princeton, Harvard and other institutions, show that the huge pool of poorly educated black men are becoming ever more disconnected from the mainstream society, and to a far greater degree than comparable white or Hispanic men."

"There's something very different happening with young black men, and it's something we can no longer ignore," said Ronald B. Mincy, professor of social work at Columbia University and editor of "Black Males Left Behind" (Urban Institute Press, 2006).

"Over the last two decades, the economy did great," Mr. Mincy said, "and low-skilled women, helped by public policy, latched onto it. However, young black men were falling farther back."

"If you look at the numbers, the 1990s was a bad decade for young black men, even though it had the best labor market in 30 years," said Harry J. Holzer, an economist at Georgetown University and co-author, with Peter Edelman and Paul Offner, of "Reconnecting Disadvantaged Young Men" (Urban Institute Press, 2006).

Other stats Eckholm sites:      
– Incarceration rates climbed in the 1990's and reached historic highs in the past few years. In 1995, 16 percent of black men in their 20s who did not attend college were in jail or prison; by 2004, 21 percent were incarcerated. By their mid-30s, six in 10 black men who had dropped out of school had spent time in prison.
– About half of all black men in their late 20s and early 30s who did not go to college are noncustodial fathers. The share of young black men without jobs has climbed relentlessly, with only a slight pause during the economic peak of the late 1990's. In 2000, 65 percent of black male high school dropouts in their 20s were jobless — that is, unable to find work, not seeking it or incarcerated. By 2004, the share had grown to 72 percent, compared with 34 percent of white and 19 percent of Hispanic dropouts. Even when high-school graduates were included, half of black men in their 20s were jobless in 2004, up from 46 percent in 2000.

Yes, it is not popular to say these things, but most Americans have a right to feel the way they do about black America, and all of the media hype is not going to make it go away. As long as one fears for their lives whenever they are in a black area, or watches any news broadcast, or sees the fate of half of the NBA and NFL players in the newspapers, this so-called racism isn't going to end. It is not racist to be in fear when you have a reason to be in fear!
Black Americans can, if they change their culture, make it in America, just like almost every other group has done. This is America, not Africa. To be accepted here, one must want to be here and adopt the ways of this country. Nobody would move to China and expect that nation to adopt the English language, banish Chinese culture and adopt American customs, yet that is exactly what black America has expected from this country. It is not going to happen.

Black Americans can change their fate, they can merge themselves into our culture and most Americans want that to happen, but unless there is a big change in that community, the continued fear and distrust of blacks will continue. Their leaders hold the key to the improvement of their own people. America is waiting for it to happen, and I hope that someday it will.

There was a time in this country when people spoke up for God and country. Today, we are ridiculed and called "racist," "homophobes" and "just plain dumb." That's fine with me. I guess I am not "modern" and "enlightened."  
As for me, I'll take what Jesus said more seriously than what others might say: "In vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." (Mark 7:7)

Liberal Owe Richard Nixon an Apology

English: Four Presidents: President Ronald Rea...English: Four Presidents: President Ronald Reagan with his three predecessors. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Bob Barney

When Bill Clinton wanted advice from a former president, who did he turn to? We know it sure wasn't Jimmy Carter, who Clinton did everything he could do to distance himself from. Hillary "channel" Eleanor Roosevelt, but who did Clinton want advice from? How about George Bush (King George the 1st that is), a person who basically adopted Bill, and even within the Bush family is known as "the black sheep son" on the elder Bush. If you think it was former President George Bush, you would have guessed wrong. Ronald Reagan, perhaps? After all Reagan, like Bill had the only other successful two-term presidency in 40 years. Again, wily ole Bill Clinton did not reach out to Reagan for advice. This could have been because of the advanced state of alzheimer's that Reagan was suffering from by 1993. I think most liberals will be shocked to learn that the man that Bill Clinton looked up to and valued his opinion was the object of liberal ire, Richard M Nixon! Yes, you read that right! Clinton thought Nixon to be an intellect like no other, and was amazed by just how smart Nixon was, even in his advanced years! Clinton received foreign policy advice from Nixon, usually in late-night telephone calls, that he described as "hardheaded and matchless". Nixon told an aide that no other president had ever confided in him so completely. During his visit to the White House residence in 1993, Nixon discussed with the Clinton both the challenges of raising daughters in the White House and passing health care reform.

Here is a story that must have been overlooked....

Nixon In Another Comeback: He Advises Clinton On Russia
Scripps Howard News Service

WASHINGTON - Richard Nixon has a new admirer - Bill Clinton. Like a cat with nine lives, former President Nixon's political resuscitation has undergone yet another twist: as bipartisan dispenser of advice.
After calling Nixon late last Wednesday and talking with him for more than half an hour, President Clinton invited him to the White House last night for cocktails and conversation.
The two men had not met before, but during the 1992 campaign Nixon said privately that he didn't think George Bush could win re-election and praised Clinton's political instincts.
The 46-year-old Democratic president, six weeks in office, wanted to pick the brain of the 80-year-old Republican ex-president, out of office since Aug. 9, 1974, after the coverup of the June 1972 burglary of the Democratic National Committee headquarters. Nixon was pardoned by his successor, Gerald Ford.
Nixon, who recently returned from Russia, has been publicly urging Clinton to substantially increase aid to Russia, calling it the single most important foreign policy issue of the age.
Since polls show little interest in the United States in foreign aid and given Clinton's determination to make the domestic economy his No. 1 priority, Nixon would seem to have an uphill battle.
But Clinton praised Nixon's position in a meeting with mayors last week, saying, "I agree, frankly, with the general thrust" of Nixon's arguments. (End of article)

If this should come as a surprise to liberals, who seem to have an attention span and memory of about 24 hours (the drugs, I guess) it might be noted that Richard Nixon did many "liberal" programs that Democrats claim as their own. Here is another article:

Richard Nixon: America’s Greatest Liberal
by Ken Layne

As we continue honoring the birth of Richard Milhouse Nixon, let’s take a look at his liberal credentials.
If you only know “Tricky Dick” for his dictatorial presidency that very nearly ended two centuries of American democracy and first elevated amoral criminals such as Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld to the White House, then you’ll surely be surprised by all the stuff we’ve hidden after the jump.
Nixon also distinguished himself by these lefty actions:
* Saved America’s environment by creating the Environmental Protection Agency and Clean Air Act while approving the most sweeping environmental legislation in history. 

* Simultaneously reformed welfare and brought in serious new civil-rights laws and agencies for minorities, women, the handicapped and children. 

* Proclaimed the first official U.S. Earth Day/Earth Week in 1971.

* Totally reformed the government’s relationship with Native Americans, bringing new self-determination and civil rights to U.S. tribes while saving such Indian natural wonders as Pyramid Lake — the tribe even renamed its capital “Nixon.” 

* Was even described as “the Abraham Lincoln of the Indian people.” 
* Loved those Chinese communists. 
* Spent more on social programs than defense! 

* Fathered screaming ex-socialist lunatic Mojo Nixon.
There you go, hippies: Nixon was more liberal than Clinton.

So I ask, what is it about Richard Nixon you liberals don't like? His lying? NOPE, that can't be. You didn't mind Clinton lying, you don't mind Obama lying. In fact, whenever another Obama comes to life, you just proclaim, "all politicians lie." 

Furthermore, Richard Nixon did something else he was never credited for... He literally saved tens of thousands of lives when he ended the Vietnam war in 4years! Barack Obama, loves to blame Afghanistan and Irag on Bush II, but did Richard Nixon ever blame the Vietnam War on Johnson, Kennedy and Truman (the three that brought us this war, which caused us millions of causalities on both sides)? The answer is no. He simply ended the war, and has never been given the credit that he deserves. I will never forget the words of a released POW returning from Vietnam in 1972, getting off the plane in America telling the world, "God Bless America - and God Bless Richard Nixon."   Liberals wouldn’t forgive Nixon for ending the war sooner, but don’t even bother to hold Obama responsible for his war, and YES it is HIS war now, not Bush’s!  Just like Vietnam became Richard Nixon’s war in 1969, Afghanistan and Iraq became Obama’s war in 2009.  The dishonest liberal press, and morons on the left wear rose-colored glasses whenever Obama’s true policies are exposed. You liberals owe Nixon an apology. It seems Clinton agrees with me.

Here is a video, for those who either forgot, or who never learned in our liberally blind school system:


Dad Watched in Horror as Two Armed Men Held a Gun to His Teen Daughter’s Head — Then He Did Something About It

Two armed criminals reportedly put a gun to a 17-year-old girl’s head on Monday night as she was outside retrieving something from a car. The man, whose intentions still aren’t entirely clear, then ordered the teenager to take them into her house — a decision that would prove to have deadly consequences.

Peering out the window of the St. Louis home were the girl’s mother and father, each prepared to protect their daughter with deadly force. There was also a 5-year-old boy in the house, though his relationship to the family wasn’t known on Tuesday.

The girl’s father, a 34-year-old man, reportedly observed the men walking towards his home while holding a gun to his daughter’s head, a sight that no father ever wants to see. He quickly retrieved his firearm and his wife did the same.

The brave dad then confronted the two criminals and opened fire, hitting both suspects with accurate shots. The girl’s mother also fired off some rounds, but failed to hit either suspect.   MORE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


Then and now: This unique set of photographs shows D-Day locations as you have never seen them before

As thousands of veterans remember the sacrifice of their fallen comrades who gave their lives during the opening days of Operation Overlord, life at many of the locations that saw the heaviest fighting continues as normal. 

In a fitting tribute to the fight against Nazi tyranny, young children are enjoying the freedom secured by those brave men and women on those dark days 70 years ago as the allies struggled for a foot-hold on mainland Europe. 

By the end of the first day, in the region of 160,00 allied troops had made it ashore along a 50 mile stretch of the Normandy coastline at a cost of 4,000 lives.

'I thought I'd seen it all. Then I found nuns' secret grave for 800 babies':

A personal note: My Grandfather told me about this same sort of things he discovered back in the 1920's!   This isn't a rare thing!


In nearly two decades as a foreign correspondent, I covered stories of mass graves in far-flung locations in Eastern Europe  and Russia. The thought of them has remained lodged in my memory. 


But never did I expect to be covering a mass grave from modern times on my own doorstep; I thought Western and Northern Europe was immune from such horrors. 


Yet that is exactly what I came across in January this year in the small Irish town of Tuam in County Galway, an ugly place with its rundown streets and council estates.

On a grey, rainy afternoon, I was taken to a patch of land in the centre of one such estate. Surrounded by houses built in the 1970s, on the edge of a scruffy playground, I found a plaster statue of the Madonna on a pile of stones, incongruously sheltered by an old enamel bathtub. Beneath it were the bodies of nearly 800 babies.

Last of Surviving D-Day Veterans Battle Time to Bear Witness

CAEN, France—When John C. Raaen Jr. stormed Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944, he was a 22-year-old captain leading his fellow U.S. Army Rangers into a hail of Nazi gunfire.

Today, he is a 92-year-old retired general who faces a different challenge: The generation of veterans who turned the tide of World War II with the D-Day landing and survived to tell their story is literally dying off.

"I haven't seen a single soul that I know here that had anything to do with the Rangers," Gen. Raaen said after walking the windswept shores of Normandy a day before the 70th anniversary of history's biggest amphibious offensive.

President Barack Obama and a host of other leaders will gather at the cemeteries across Normandy on Friday to commemorate D-Day and the thousands of fallen Allied troops who are buried here beneath rows of chalk-white headstones. For decades, D-Day commemorations have served as a potent reminder of the shared sacrifice of American, Canadian, British and other Western forces to free Europe from the clutches of totalitarianism. Not only was the battle pivotal in defeating Adolf Hitler, it turned the page on centuries of European bloodshed, leading the way to a new order.

"D-Day marked the beginning of the end of two world wars and put the foundation together of our alliance as it is today," said Gen. Jean-Paul Paloméros, a former French Air Force chief of staff who now serves as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's supreme allied commander for transformation.

'Any fault is mine alone': How General Eisenhower planned to take full blame if D-Day had FAILED

and it could teach today's politicians a thing or two!

This is the historic speech the free world did not want to hear - and, thankfully, didn't.

Hastily scribbled on piece of paper, Allied supremo General Dwight D. Eisenhower jotted down what he planned to say had D-Day, which was 70 years ago tomorrow, been a disaster.

The little-known document, known as 'In Case of Failure', was quickly drafted by the commander of Operation Overlord in the event of the landings ending in bloody failure.

The 66-word script reveals the U.S. general and Britain's Prime Minister Winston Churchill would have withdrawn the thousands of troops from the Normandy beaches rather than let them fight to the death.

This is the chilling speech Allied supremo General Dwight Eisenhower planned to make had D-Day turned into Doomsday, scribbled down on a note

It also shows Eisenhower, who went on to become president in 1953, would have accepted the full blame for the unimaginable defeat at the hands of the Nazis.

In the event, the Normandy landings were a success and ultimately led to the beginning of the end of the Second World War.

Eisenhower gave the note to his adjutant officer five weeks after D-Day and it is has been held by the Eisenhower Presidential Library for the last 30 years.

'If I don't come home, there's so much I mean to tell you...': Heartbreaking last letters of those who didn't make it through D-Day

The heroics of the men who fought valiantly to take Sword, Gold and Juno beaches on D-Day will never be forgotten but the stories of those who died are less well-remembered.

Now letters written by men preparing for D-Day and who didn't make it home are to be brought to life in a poignant documentary made to mark the 70th anniversary of the landings.

Among the accounts to appear on ITV's If I Don't Come Home - Letters from D-Day is the story of Captain Norman Skinner, 38, from Hillingdon in London.

Tragic: Canadian Rifleman Glenn Dickin was shot by the Germans
Heartbreak: Father of two Captain Norman Skinner was killed when a bomb struck his dug out

Ahead of the assault on Normandy beaches, which would help mark the beginning of the end of World War Two, Captain Skinner wrote to his wife of eight years with whom he had two young daughters, Ann and Jane. 


'As you know anything may happen at any moment and I cannot tell when you will receive this,' he noted. 'All the things I intended to say must be written.'

King Juan Carlos stuns Spain with shock abdication

The march toward the Beast of Revelation in Europe moves forward


King Juan Carlos I of Spain announced his abdication today after 39 years on the throne to 'open a new era of hope for a younger generation'.


The 76-year-old - who made the surprise announcement in a televised address today - will hand the throne to his son, Prince Felipe, 46, and his glamorous wife Letizia, a former award-winning newsreader and divorcee.


He is the third European monarch to abdicate in just over a year after King Albert II of Belgium gave his crown to son Philippe last July, three months after Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands made way for her firstborn, Prince Willem-Alexander.


Juan Carlos, who oversaw his country's transition from dictatorship to democracy, has seen the twilight of his monarchy blighted by scandal and health problems, including five operations in the last two years.

EXCLUSIVE - 'A cover up just like Benghazi': Outraged parents of officer who died hunting for 'deserter' POW Bergdahl lash out at Obama

The furious parents of an officer who they claim was killed while searching for freed Taliban prisoner Bowe Bergdahl today said that they have been lied to as part of a ‘cover up just like Benghazi’.

The mother and father of Second Lieutenant Darryn Andrews are angry that they have been told different stories about how their son died.

First his commanders said that their son was blown up while hunting a Taliban commander - but only now that Bergdahl has been freed after five years in captivity are they learning the truth.

Cover-up: Mr Andrews claimed soldiers said they had 'to sign a letter saying that they would not discuss this', but now they have approached the family to tell the 'truth'.
