- from Amazon:
"The Pearl Harbor attack put a pressure on the President that never lifted."
"With the flower of American youth fighting and dying on land and sea, he looked on any sparing of himself as a betrayal..."
FDR's Deadly Secret
Here is a short article that appeared a year and a half into the administration of President Roosevelt and it lays the nation's economic short comings right upon the doorstep of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The writer articulated how unrecognizable the nation had become in such a very short span of time. The president's anti-competition policies were reeking havoc on an already damaged economy:
"The New Deal plan for cotton is destroying nothing less than the principal industry of the South... There is freshly disclosed evidence that the Public Works Administration works directly toward the retardation of private enterprise."
This historic article appeared during the opening weeks of Roosevelt's first term administration announcing that the new president was taking a novel approach in granting various appointments to government positions of leadership by selecting numerous women who had proved their mettle in the fiery furnace of 1920s Democratic party politics.
1924 was a very important year for American women in politics...

Appearing in CONFIDENTIAL MAGAZINE during the early months of 1954 were these pages from a memoir that was written by the sergeant who rode herd on the New York Police Security Detail for President Franklin Roosevelt. As far as we can figure, Prisoner at Hyde Park by New York State Policeman Edward J. Dougherty was never published, but as you will soon read, it was full of many obscure and unheard of stories of FDR and the world he dominated while in the Empire State.
