NEW YORK, Feb. 8, 2024 (EIRNS)—After an update on the developments since the ruling by the International Court of Justice on the “plausible genocide” being committed by Israel, candidate for U.S. Senate for New York Diane Sare continued her focus on Feb. 2 during her weekly Friday Symposium, on the need to educate Americans on the true history of our nation.
The broadcast, centered on the achievements of President Ulysses S. Grant, was the first of three programs, leading up to Presidents Day celebrated on Feb. 19 this year. Tomorrow’s program, on Feb. 9, already posted, will address the work of Gen. Smedley Butler. The third program will focus on “Abraham Lincoln and Shakespeare.”
Robert Wesser, historian and Sare for Senate staffer, began his presentation on President Grant by displaying an 1890 map—which looks amazingly like the Schiller Institute’s famous World Land-Bridge map. The map from 1890 showed the U.S. linked to Russia, to China, and to South America via railroad. That railroad linkage was the intention and expectation at that time! The Declaration of Independence and the Preamble to the Constitution raised the question: What should be the U.S. role in the world? Presidents George Washington and John Quincy Adams had laid out the peaceful goal of extending trade and cooperation around the world. Asia, being the most populous area, was of major interest. British free trade and slavery were used to attempt to destroy these initiatives.
