    I can see why.

    Certainly not in the league with architetectural artistry of the Gothic Charles Bridge, the Huey P. Long bridge is an engineering marvel built in three years in the depth of the 1930s economic Depression.

    Governor Long died of gunshot wounds after being shot in the State Capitol by by jewish assassin, Dr. Carl Weiss, before its completion in 1935.

    Had Long lived, he would’ve been President and there would’ve been no WWII and no destruction of Europe.

    That’s a great shot – I love the shadows cast by the walkers, and the outlines of the statuary against the gray sky.

    Wow, so now we’re finding a way to blame the Jews for WWII also? These really must be the end times ….

    RB, your fellow HuffPo writer Breitbart had his ticket punched. Thought that might interest you.

    CyniCAl: Someone should do a video expose of his funeral and probate process.

    Sorry EH, I don’t get the reference.

    Pugnacious wins the non-sequitur award for the day. In fact, I couldn’t craft a more complete non-sequitur if I tried. Each and every word in his comment is irrelevant, as is the comment in its entirety. Brilliant.

    Both bridges were built by Kings:Charles V in Prague and the Kingfish in New Orleans.

    The Charles Bridge is a footbridge, while the Huey P. Long is a rail/auto bridge.

    The Huey P. Long Bridge was built in three years;The Charles Bridge took over a century to complete.

    The Charles Bridge is Gothic design.

    The Huey P. Long Bridge is Art Deco design as is the Louisiana State Capitol Building in Baton Rouge built under his direction.

    Wow, so now we’re finding a way to blame the Jews for WWII also? These really must be the end times ….~

    Wow, you’ve obviously never heard of FDR’s Ben Victor Cohen and his pre-WWII Lend-Lease Act?

    And, Ben Victor Cohen was the World Zionst Organization “official” representative at the “make Germany pay” 1919 Paris Peace Conference(aka as the Treaty of Versailles) along with Chaim Weizmann, sent there to accept their share of war spoils for bringing Wilson into the war. It was there that Cohen and Weizmann accepted deed and title to Palestine(the Balfour Declaration).

    The rest is REAL history.

    The Kingfish is buried on the grounds of the Capitol Building.

  11. #11 |  James D | 

    Um, the Lend-Lease act was done in 1941 … not BEFORE the war:

    And what’s the issue with the Balfour Declaration? You mean giving Jews back the land they had been conquered out from under them? Conquered by the same barbarians that are attempting to do it yet again ….

    Getting Israel back was about the only GOOD thing that happened to Jews as a result of WWII.

    Pugnacious is right. It’s all laid out in this great book I read called “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” I don’t remember the chapter on bridges or Huey P. Long. But I do seem to remember something about Jews forcing Hitler to invade Poland so he could set up death camps and kill them. Man, the things you learn on the internet.

    A beautiful shot of a beautiful bridge. I was just in Prague in December and took more photos of that bridge than any other subject. What a beautiful city. Radley and I took many similar shots.

    Um, the Lend-Lease act was done in 1941 … not BEFORE the war:…~James

    Lend-Lease was signed into law by FDR on that date, but Cohen and the other members of FDR’s jewish “braintrust ” began war planning way before 1941… sending foodstuffs, aircraft and munitions to Stalin and England way before it was signed into law.

    Charles Lindeberg speaks to that fact in his Des Moines, Iowa Peace speech?

    The Patriot Act was “done” in 2001 following the ground cockpit events of 9/11, but it was formulated and planned by Chertoff and his neo-cons long before 2001.

    The Khazar ancestors of the Zionist emigrees to Palestine NEVER laid eyes on the “Promised Land!” The Zionist jews have NO ancestral claim on Palestine.

    Surely, you’ve read Arthur Koestler’s The Thirteenth Tribe…the book that cost his life(along with his wife’s) as it refuted the Zionist “ancestral” claim on Palestine?

  15. #15 |  Pugnacious | 

    Does Lindbergh’s Peace Speech sound familiar, James?

    Interesting date, huh? And on that very same date 9/11, in the very same year (1941), The ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the Pentagon were held in DC.

    And, too, just by coincidence on that date, Commander-In-Chief FDR ordered the Army Air Force and the US Navy to attack and sink German warships in international waters so as to provoke Hitler into responding with a “retaliatory” response.

    You should read David Irving’s Hitler’s War before making these uniformed and false statements of the facts.

    … so as to provoke Hitler into responding with a “retaliatory” response.~
    Poorly worded. Perhaps I should have written” as to provoke Hitler into ordering a retaliatory response. It was Churchill who initiated the terror bombing of German cities so as to provoke Hitler into responding with the so-called Blitz.”

    Listen up, James!

    Germany’s Formal Declaration of War Against the United States

    About two hours before Hitler began his address to the Reichstag, Germany formally declared war against the United States when Reich Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop delivered a diplomatic note to the American Charge d’Affaires in Berlin, Leland B. Morris.

    At almost the same time, the German Charge d’Affaires in Washington, Hans Thomsen, presented a copy of this note to the Chief of the European Division of the Department of State, Ray Atherton. Here is the text of the note:

    The government of the United States of America, having violated in the most flagrant manner and in ever increasing measure all rules of neutrality in favor of the adversaries of Germany, and having continually been guilty of the most severe provocations toward Germany ever since the outbreak of the European war, brought on by the British declaration of war against Germany on September 3, 1939, has finally resorted to open military acts of aggression.

    On September 11, 1941, the President of the United States of America publicly declared that he had ordered the American Navy and Air Force to shoot on sight any German war vessel. In his speech of October 27, 1941, he once more expressly affirmed that this order was in force.

    Acting under this order, American naval vessels have systematically attacked German naval forces since early September 1941. Thus, American destroyers, as for instance, the Greer, the Kearny and the Reuben James, have opened fire on German submarines according to plan. The American Secretary of the Navy, Mr. Knox, himself confirmed that the American destroyers attacked German submarines.

    Furthermore, the naval forces of the United States of America, under order of their government and contrary to international law, have treated and seized German merchant ships on the high seas as enemy ships.

    The German government therefore establishes the following facts:

    Although Germany on her part has strictly adhered to the rules of international law in her relations with the United States of America during every period of the present war, the government of the United States of America from initial violations of neutrality has finally proceeded to open acts of war against Germany. It has thereby virtually created a state of war.

    The government of the Reich consequently breaks off diplomatic relations with the United States of America and declares that under these circumstances brought about by President Roosevelt, Germany too, as from today, considers herself as being in a state of war with the United States of America.

    But I do seem to remember something about Jews forcing Hitler to invade Poland so he could set up death camps and kill them.~DanG

    More people died in the back of Ted Kennedy’s car at Chappaquiddick, than ever died in a homicidal gas chamber in Germany or Poland!~David Irving

    I think that the ICRC has already confirmed that the victims of the work camps died from the effects of disease (typhus)and malnutrition brought on by the terror bombing of Germany’s industries and transportation system.

    Yes, the advent of the internet allowed even the “shirtsleeve” historians to dig up long-buried truths from the past…exposing the lies, deception and coverups of the twentieth century by the print publishing moguls and their fellow travelers in Hollywood, at the US State Department and among the unelected powerbrokers at the Think Tanks in America’s beltway.

    Get over it!

    A non-sequitur? Then what was the premise?

    Look where a photo of a footbridge took this conversation.

    Thanks for the “brilliant” comment, too.

    It is claimed that “Diogese the cynic” went around pointing his finger at people he didn’t like.

  19. #19 |  Pugnacious | 

    It was the “middle” finger.

  20. #20 |  James D | 

    Wow, what a scary world you live in Pugnacious …. you can read the internet and a few books and that nullifies FIRST HAND accounts of thousands (if not millions) of people. It’s really just not worth my time to argue with you. I just hope you never gain a position of any political power.

  21. #21 |  Pugnacious | 

    And not a single eye-witness of those “millions” has been able to provide a photo of a homicidal gas chamber, nor has any such documentation been produced that such a “killing machine” existed.

    And there are millions of eye-witnesses to the horrors of WWII that dispute such a claim, but if they “deny the existence of a deliberate plan by Germany to exterminate European Jewry,” they are automatically guilty of a criminal offense and hauled before judges and sentenced to lenthy prison terms and heavy fines.

    We must tolerate error, as long as we allow the pursuit of truth to combat it.~Thomas Jefferson

    I (as in ME, myself) have been to concentration camp, SEEN the cyanide injectors, seen the trenches dug outside the camp, etc …

    So I have seen the proof AND met people who were actually IN those camps …

    Where are your ‘millions of eye witnesses’ who say that this stuff didn’t happen … would their name happen to contain Mohammed in it somewhere and they actually never lived in Germany perhaps?
