Ford also admired Josef Stalin and helped him build Tractor Plants and Farm Machinery Plants. A Capitalist actually helping out a mass murdering Communist. Weird.
Ford was self-serving, of course, and in the process pursued the American Dream. But he had some really screwed up ideas, too. I recall reading about how he twisted the arms of all his employees by telling them how to live, what to eat, how to dress, what to read, to such an extent that people actually thought he was off his rocker.
He also started up a Dearborn Newspaper that was Anti-Semitic and racially biased against blacks. After a number of years of heavy criticism, he was forced to close the paper.
Wrong!!

Ford despised Stalin and Communism, nitwit.

Ford admired Hitler, though.

Ford sold the Soviets his outdated Model A technology, just as he was switching to new engines (V8) and body styles (Model B).

He made them pay cash for all of it, charged them through the nose. Stalin knew he needed a modern transport system and was willing to pay cash.

Ford believed that they would see the wisdom of capitalism and abandon communism.

He was dead wrong.

But to say he was Stalin's admirer proves you don't know squat, once again.

----------

""By 1929, Amtorg had managed to negotiate a formal licensing agreement with the Ford Motor Company, a contract to build in Soviet Russia both Ford trucks and cars. With the assistance of Ford and other American firms, Stalin ordered the construction of a mega industrial complex at Gorky (present day Nizhny Novgorod). This city in the heartland of Russia, east of Moscow, soon became the Soviet Detroit, a reputation it retains to this day. The Soviets learned to their chagrin that Henry Ford drove a hard bargain on any contract, requiring hard currency for all his designs, equipment, and technical assistance. Signed in May 1929, Ford agreed to oversee the construction of the Gorky facility, which would manufacture Model A cars and trucks. In return, the Soviets agreed (read guaranteed) to order no less than 72,000 unassembled Fords with spare parts for the next nine years. Even on details, Henry Ford was unrelenting in his demands, for example insisting that the Soviets pay for the travel, housing, and subsistence of his technicians sent to Gorky to assist in the gargantuan task of cloning River Rouge. The price tag for the Ford licensing agreement was high, but the benefits were manifest: the Soviet Union could create in one quantum leap a new and modern transport sector.

For the Ford Motor Company the deal with the Russians was not only profitable, it was very timely. Unwittingly, Amtorg had purchased the Model A technology at the very moment Henry Ford had decided to abandon it for a new generation of designs and to introduce the V-8 engine. Transferring this Model A technology to the Soviet Union proved to be an effective way to unload what had become an obsolescent technology. Moreover, the multi-year contract set the stage for future deals with the Russians on newer designs of Ford trucks and automobiles. The Russians dubbed their new Fords the GAZ-A (a copy of the Model A sedan) and the GAZ-AA (a truck to appear in more than one incarnation). Later, in World War II, the GAZ AA won fame during the siege of Leningrad as the prime vehicle to deliver supplies across frozen Lake Ladoga. The acronym GAZ stood for Gorkovsky Avtomobilnyy Zavod, or the Gorky automobile plant. This GAZ name endures to the present time, being associated with a wide variety of cars, trucks, buses, and special vehicles. In reality, the first GAZ-A and GAZ-AA vehicles were assembled from kits sent to Russia from Michigan. It would take several years before the Russians were able to manufacture their own components, engines, and accessories. This process of adaptation, however, took place in a relatively short time frame. By 1935, the Soviets had produced 100,000 Ford-designed vehicles.""

Fox News analyst Juan Williams on Sunday confronted the CEO of the Heritage Foundation for his role in “demonizing” President Barack Obama to the point that many all-white tea partiers were calling for impeachment.

During a panel discussion on Fox News just moments after Rep. Steve King (R-IA) suggested impeaching the president, host Chris Wallace asked Heritage CEO Michael Needham if there was grassroots support for impeachment hearings.

“The trouble with a lawless president is it’s very difficult to constrain him because he doesn’t care about the law,” Needham opined.“He’s totally out of control.”

“He’s a lawless president?” National Journal‘s Ron Fournier interrupted.“Is that really a phrase you want? He’s a lawless president? Completely lawless?”

Needham argued that Republicans were suing Obama instead of impeaching him because “they’re trying to find a way to constrain a lawless president.”

Williams, however, said that it was exactly that kind of talk that was creating a groundswell for impeachment.

“You listen to Michael, and you understand why there are lots of Republicans who think,‘This man’s a demon, this guy’s awful, we got to get this guy out of here any way we can, he’s breaking the law,’” Williams explained.“I hear this on talk radio, I hear this in conservative columns, that people are saying they think this guy’s way over the line. And then they say, we got to find a way to get him.”

“And then you hear from Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and others,‘Yes, we use the impeachment word,’” the Fox News analyst continued.“And then you come on and say,‘Oh, no. We’re not talking about impeachment, that’s the Democrats.’ All the Democrats are doing is taking advantage of the fact that you guys have demonized President Obama to this extent.”

Williams also pointed out that many minorities saw the impeachment talk as “an attack on the first black president,” and “it’s unfair so it’s going spur their turnout in midterms which is going to be critical in several races.”

Wallace interrupted to ask Williams to clarify whether or not racism was driving impeachment.

“Well, all I can do is look at the numbers,” Williams replied.“If you look at the core constituency of people, let’s say, who are in tea party opposition support of impeachment, there’s no diversity. It’s a white, older group of people.”

“I would say, if you just break it down as a matter of political analysis and say who is this group, it reminds me that the Republican Party has become almost a completely white party,” he observed.

Needham seemed shocked that he was being accused of “demonizing” the president.

“Because I’m saying the president of the United States is lawless, which by the way, the Supreme Court agreed with,” Needman remarked.“You’re the one demonizing people who are concerned about the fact we have a crisis of the Constitution!”

“The people who want him impeached, they’re all white!” Williams exclaimed.“And they’re all older. And guess what? They’re all in the far right wing of the Republican Party.”

“And he might have well just said,‘And they’re all racists,’” Needham quipped.

Israel was permitted to search for and dismantle tunnels during the ceasefire. Yes, Hamas violated a ceasefire by being in those tunnels. Holding ground? LOL. What is the purpose of a tunnel?

UN chief Ban Ki-moon condemns shelling of Gaza school as 'criminal act'

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon demands those responsible for the 'gross violation of international humanitarian law' be held accountable.

The shelling of the UN school in Rafah in southern Gaza killed at least 10 civilians, the United Nations said. It was the third deadly attack on a UN school sheltering Palestinians during the 27-day conflict between Israel and Hamas militants.

All three incidents are being investigated, but the United Nations has initially blamed Israel for Sunday's attack and another strike last Wednesday on a UN- run school in Jabalya refugee camp that killed at least 15 civilians.

"The Israel Defence Forces have been repeatedly informed of the location of these sites," Ban's spokesman said in a statement.

"This attack, along with other breaches of international law, must be swiftly investigated and those responsible held accountable. It is a moral outrage and a criminal act," the statement said.
