    Bolshevism where the "equality" utopia will reign supreme except for the elites who will continue to live their debauched and obscene lives “If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”—Mad Hatter, character in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland If you wondered about the deplorable state of American mis-education, all you have to do is look at the historical revisionist indoctrination in the textbooks, the classroom-forced...

    “Please, you cannot be more restrictive than the Church itself or more papists than the Pope: open the doors, do not do asses on Christian perfection, because by doing so you are promoting a hypocritical attitude.” Amid applause, Pope Francis addressed the International Catholic Action Federation (Fiac), which he received on the eve of his trip to Egypt, and recommended its leaders “not to “clericalize” the laity, to be more outgoing and willing to sacrifice, aware, he warned that this could “cause you some problems because by doing so, more people will want to join the organization even though they...
  • How Lenin’s Bolsheviks Brought Communism to Russia

    All throughout 1917, the toils of war and cascading revolutionary activity overturned the Russian Czarist government and established the left-leaning but democratically principled Provisional Government. The new authorities made preparations to hold elections. For the many political philosophies and groups then existing in Russian intelligentsia, it was an exciting prospect. In March 1917, Czar Nicholas II was deposed and forced to abdicate following major bloodshed in St. Petersburg, then the capital of the Russian Empire. But the vast nation, containing many different cultures and races across about 20 percent of the world’s land area, had never been a democracy and...
  • Putin denounces Soviet founder Lenin

    MOSCOW (AP) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday criticized Soviet founder Vladimir Lenin, accusing him of placing a "time bomb" under the state, and sharply denouncing brutal repressions by the Bolshevik government. The harsh criticism of Lenin, who is still revered by communists and many others in Russia, is unusual for Putin, who in the past carefully weighed his comments about the nation's history to avoid alienating some voters. At the same time, he signaled that the government has no intention of taking Lenin's body out of his Red Square tomb, warning against "any steps that would divide the...

    "Dalton Trumbo was a socialist, but he loved being rich." So says Bryan Cranston, who stars in "Trumbo," out this week, and plays the screenwriter who went to prison with the Hollywood Ten in the time of Harry Truman. Actually, Trumbo was not a socialist. Bernie Sanders is a socialist. Trumbo was a Stalinist, a hard-core Communist when the Communist Party USA was run from Moscow by the Comintern, agents of the greatest mass murderer of the 20th century.

    Should at any time we feel ourselves to be alone, or for the secular world to be so overwhelming and powerful as to render spiritual life redundant, we can reflect on the difficulties of our predecessors and be inspired by their cheerfulness and joy in the face of tremendous privations. As mentioned before, the mid 1920’s was a period of ferocious attacks upon the Church by the Bolsheviks, both clergy and laity. Many of the faithful were executed or imprisoned in the Gulag for extended periods on nonsensical charges. The Solovetsky Island concentration camp (Solovki for short), formerly a remote...

    Racism is caused when the liberal mostly white establishment anoints left-wing radicals as black leaders. The truth is that most blacks in America are conservative patriotic religious people. Black radicals such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and historic figures such as Malcolm X and the Black Panthers are turned into cultural icons by left-wingers with ulterior motives. No wonder there is racism in America. The establishment left plucks radicals out of obscurity, grooms them, lavishes them with money and fame and holds them up as representing all black people. We don’t hear much from the majority of blacks who...

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and his family are featured in a worshipful profile in this month's Washingtonian magazine. It's the sort of adoring journalistic exercise reserved for only the most handsome of the power elite. In it you can find out details about the Carney dog (a cousin to presidential pooch Sonny!), and how much the press secretary's tie costs ($135). But keen observers may notice the kitchen decor in the photo: Soviet propaganda posters. They really are the perfect pop of color whether you are the dour and sincere Nikita Khrushchev or the cheeky press-wrangler for a...

Ayn Rand is not my hero but she had a lot of insight to give us Americans. Are we not even going to consider her views? Time will tell.

    November 7, 1917: Communist Revolution in Russia In response to Russia’s defeat on the front, Czar Nicholas II was dethroned in a revolution in March 1917 and a new government of mixed liberal-conservative complexion came into being. As political deadlock and defeats on the front continued, the socialists gained in popularity and their radical wing, the Bolshevik party, under Lenin, called for immediate peace and apportionment of land to the peasants. In November 1917, the Bolsheviks seized power. The new government concluded an armistice with Germany in December 1917 and a separate peace treaty with Germany in March 1918, but...

    Obama denies being an ideologue or a Bolshevik, why? Is he ashamed of his heritage and convictions, are just intent on keeping his motivations covert until the right time to spring his true nature upon us. Or is there a technicality that we need to grasp? Perhaps we should analyze the term Bolshevik. Historically, the Bolsheviks were a faction of the Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (RSDLP), founded by Vladimir Lenin, they split from the Menshevik faction in 1903, during the Second Party Congress. They eventually gained control during the October phase of the Revolution in 1917. Bolshevik...

    BALTIMORE, Maryland (AFP) – President Barack Obama Friday chided Republicans for portraying his health reform plan as a "Bolshevik plot" and for saying he wanted to do "crazy stuff that is going to destroy America." In a highly unusual televised question-and-answer session, Obama told his foes they should not just oppose him for political gain, warning that elected officials should care more about jobs of voters than their own. "I'm not a pundit, I'm just a president. So take it for what it's worth -- but I don't believe that the American people want us to focus on our job...

    Benito Mussolini has an infamous place in modern history, as well he should. Nearly everyone knows Mussolini as the dictator of Fascist Italy and the ally of Nazi Germany in the Second World War. But that is only part of the story.  Mussolini began his political career as an avowed Marxist (defined as the atheist philosophy which holds that capitalism is bad because it enriches a few capitalists to the detriment of masses of laborers and that laborers should take control of all means of production — in order, in theory though not in practice, to be fair to the...

    Inside the Stalin Archives by Jonathan Brent. As he wanders through the streets of St. Petersburg contemplating murder, the hero of Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment notices “that special Petersburg stench” which seems to be everywhere. Somehow, that stench constitutes the atmosphere in which lethal and repulsive ideas arise.When Jonathan Brent arrived in Moscow, he detected the same stench. It was 1992, just after the fall of the Soviet Union, and Brent seized a unique opportunity that, if not for him, would doubtless have been missed. He came to negotiate a deal to publish sensitive and secret documents from the Central...

    Ukraine's Pursuit of Genocide Designation Upsets Russians Who Say Others Died, Too MOSCOW -- Relations between Russia and Ukraine, bedeviled by disputes over natural gas supplies and NATO expansion, have lately been roiled by one of the great tragedies of Soviet history: the famine of 1932-33, which left millions dead from starvation and related diseases. Ukraine is seeking international recognition of the famine, which Ukrainians call Holodomor -- or death by hunger -- as an act of genocide. When Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin forced peasants off their homesteads and into collective farms, special military units requisitioned grain and other food...
