<quoted text>Cold War era....
Since 1972, the act prohibits domestic access to information intended for foreign audiences. Prior to this, the State Department and then the USIA beginning in 1952, were prohibited from disseminating information intended for foreign audiences, with the express intent that Congress, the American media, or academia would be the distributors of such information.
The act expanded the Fulbright Program to include countries other than those Lend-Lease countries originally specified in the original 1946 amendment to the Surplus Property Act of 1944. It also facilitated the establishment of bi-national centers around the world to coordinate international exchanges between the countries.
Amendments to the Act in 1972 and 1985 reflected the Cold War’s departure from the “struggle for minds and wills”(a phrase used by both President Truman and President Eisenhower) to a balance of power based on “traditional diplomacy” and counting missiles, bombers, and tanks. As a result, Senator J. William Fulbright argued America’s international broadcasting should take its “rightful place in the graveyard of Cold War relics”. A decade later, "Senator Edward Zorinsky (D-NE)" successfully blocked taxpayer access to USIA materials, even through Freedom of Information Act requests, as he compared the USIA to an organ of Soviet propaganda.[12]
Thank you sunnier...I knew we have been going down hill a long time I just didn't realize it had been that long.

“Conservatives” vs.“Liberals”

Both [conservatives and liberals] hold the same premise—the mind-body dichotomy—but choose opposite sides of this lethal fallacy.

The conservatives want freedom to act in the material realm; they tend to oppose government control of production, of industry, of trade, of business, of physical goods, of material wealth. But they advocate government control of man’s spirit, i.e., man’s consciousness; they advocate the State’s right to impose censorship, to determine moral values, to create and enforce a governmental establishment of morality, to rule the intellect. The liberals want freedom to act in the spiritual realm; they oppose censorship, they oppose government control of ideas, of the arts, of the press, of education (note their concern with “academic freedom”). But they advocate government control of material production, of business, of employment, of wages, of profits, of all physical property—they advocate it all the way down to total expropriation.

The conservatives see man as a body freely roaming the earth, building sand piles or factories—with an electronic computer inside his skull, controlled from Washington. The liberals see man as a soul freewheeling to the farthest reaches of the universe—but wearing chains from nose to toes when he crosses the street to buy a loaf of bread.

Yet it is the conservatives who are predominantly religionists, who proclaim the superiority of the soul over the body, who represent what I call the “mystics of spirit.” And it is the liberals who are predominantly materialists, who regard man as an aggregate of meat, and who represent what I call the “mystics of muscle.”

This is merely a paradox, not a contradiction: each camp wants to control the realm it regards as metaphysically important; each grants freedom only to the activities it despises. Observe that the conservatives insult and demean the rich or those who succeed in material production, regarding them as morally inferior—and that the liberals treat ideas as a cynical con game.“Control,” to both camps, means the power to rule by physical force. Neither camp holds freedom as a value. The conservatives want to rule man’s consciousness; the liberals, his body.

If you would read your fallacy of the conservative, you would see it's your opinion and not factual.

The United States Taxpayers provides a United State Embassy in each and every one of those invaders home countries so that any one of them can apply for a visa to come to the USA. Those who do come here with a visa are either tourists, students, legal laborers or immigrants. All others are illegal invaders and should be shot on sight. PERIOD!

Where is America's Sense of Self-Preservation?
By John Bennett
Many Western nations are restricting immigration because of popular anger at the unwelcome changes brought about by mass immigration. America seems to be the rare country with the misfortune of having politicians who won’t stand up for citizens.
How many nations around the world have to be thrown into crisis and division for us to learn that mass immigration is not always a positive?

What's being done? President Obama has called on FEMA to provide more housing and medical care for the kids, but considering the reasons behind their influx — the poverty, violence and long-term family separation — this solution seems merely cosmetic.
Their circumstances are fuelled by a confluence of policy and poverty, and a consequent violence that's forced them to choose between a mayhem-wracked homeland and a northern neighbor that's done everything to assure them they are unwanted. It's an unenviable choice for anyone to face, and these kids face it in unprecedented numbers every day.
That they're children just makes it all the more devastating.
This government didn't have a problem killing our veterans who protected you, why the outcry on another nation's citizens who sends them purposely to America to feed at the trough.

Only COWARDS shift the blame to someone else for their evil acts:

Look who Obammie is throwing under the bus NOW:

Now, amid animosity about this decision that was made without following the ‘law of the land’ to inform Congress 30 days before the release of any Guantanamo detainees and the questions surrounding Bergdahl’s desertion along with the belief by some top military officials that he was collaborating with the Taliban, the ‘we’ has turned to ‘he’. Barack Obama, who shallowly claims at times that the buck stops with him, is now pinning the decision on Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel

This is what Libbies support and not only a disgrace they are for supporting him but what a disgrace he is:

http://www.tpnn.com/2014/06/09/you-wont-belie...

When a member of the armed services salutes the president, the commander-in-chief is supposed to salute back. Having never served in the military, Obama doesn’t quite understand such things. As he entered Marine One, the official presidential helicopter, while in Europe in May 2013, Barack Obama walked right by the Marine who saluted him and up the stairs into the helicopter. This isn’t the first time he has dissed a Marine in this manner.

Did Obama pay a $5-6 million ransom to the Taliban for Bergdahl?
Here’s a new, possible development in this whole deserter Bowe Bergdahl story. Was there a $5-6 million dollar ransom paid to the Taliban by the Obama regime in addition to the 5 terrorists released in exchange for the deserter?
Oliver North seems to think so, but other than him, I haven’t heard this theory yet. If this is true, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least. Obama publicly funding a Muslim terrorist organization? It all adds up.
Some reports have the $5-6 million random not going directly to the Taliban, but instead to Qatar as ‘aid’ to the Muslim terrorist supporting country. Again, nothing surprises anymore. Obama is this corrupt, the progressive liberal Democrats are this filthy.
http://www.fireandreamitchell.com/2014/06/03/...
It wouldn't surprise me if Obammie took the Taliban on one of the multi-vacation trips and multi multi multi golf games with him at the expense of the American tax payers.

Obammie probably gives the Taliban tips on where to locate Americans for killing.
