America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

[Canadian Prime Minister] Harper, Netanyahu discuss threats posed by Iran in New York:


"Netanyahu praised Harper for his recent decision to close the Canadian embassy in Tehran. 'I think what you did, severing ties with Iran, was not only an act of statesmanship but an act of moral clarity,' he told the prime minister."

"In front of a VIP-packed American audience on Thursday night, Harper took a swipe at the United Nations and assailed Iran while picking up an international statesman award...from the Appeal of Conscience Foundation."

"The prime minister pulled no punches in his own remarks about Iran after he accepted the foundation's 'world statesman' award from storied U.S. statesman Henry Kissinger, Richard Nixon's one-time secretary of state."

Maybe Harper can compare notes with Nobel Peace Prize receipient Obama?
