    NORMANDY BEACHHEAD, June 17, 1944 Ė In the preceding column we told about the D-day wreckage among our machines of war that were expended in taking one of the Normandy beaches. But there is another and more human litter. It extends in a thin little line, just like a high-water mark, for miles along the beach. This is the strewn personal gear, gear that will never be needed again, of those who fought and died to give us our entrance into Europe. Here in a jumbled row for mile on mile are soldiersí packs. Here are socks and shoe polish,...

    The Horrible Waste of War NORMANDY BEACHHEAD, June 16, 1944 Ė I took a walk along the historic coast of Normandy in the country of France. It was a lovely day for strolling along the seashore. Men were sleeping on the sand, some of them sleeping forever. Men were floating in the water, but they didnít know they were in the water, for they were dead. The water was full of squishy little jellyfish about the size of your hand. Millions of them. In the center each of them had a green design exactly like a four-leaf clover. The good-luck...

    A Pure Miracle NORMANDY BEACHHEAD, June 12, 1944 Ė Due to a last-minute alteration in the arrangements, I didnít arrive on the beachhead until the morning after D-day, after our first wave of assault troops had hit the shore. By the time we got here the beaches had been taken and the fighting had moved a couple of miles inland. All that remained on the beach was some sniping and artillery fire, and the occasional startling blast of a mine geysering brown sand into the air. That plus a gigantic and pitiful litter of wreckage along miles of shoreline. Submerged...

    After the fall of Richmond in 1865, Abraham Lincoln went to the Confederate White House in Richmond as part of a tour of the city. A large crowd of civilians gather to see Lincoln. Weitzel asked the President for advice on how he should treat the citizens of the captured city. Lincoln replied that he did not want to give orders on that topic but "If I were in your place, I'd let 'em up easy, let 'em up easy."

    I think we should document those "Conservatives", GOP Politicians and Center-Right media figures who sided with the Clinton camp this time around. I am looking for those who rode the #Never Trump train right down to the bitter end on Nov 8th, 2016 I think it important we remember, going forward, that when a "time for choosing" came, some of ours supposed allies failed the test. The next time they come asking for money, subscriptions or other support, we need to remember they are not really on our side politically

  • The Female of the Species by Rudyard Kipling

    The Female of the Species WHEN the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride, He shouts to scare the monster, who will often turn aside. But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. When Nag the basking cobra hears the careless foot of man, He will sometimes wriggle sideways and avoid it if he can. But his mate makes no such motion where she camps beside the trail. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. When the early Jesuit...
  • First on CNN: Ted Cruz apologizes to Ben Carson

    Windham, New Hampshire (CNN)The day after winning the Iowa caucuses, Ted Cruz issued an apology to Republican rival Ben Carson for falsely telling Iowa caucusgoers that the retired neurosurgeon planned to quit the race, calling it a "mistake." Cruz said in a statement Tuesday that his campaign staff saw a CNN report that Carson was dropping out, although CNN had not characterized Carson's actions that way. "Last night when our political team saw the CNN post saying that Dr. Carson was not carrying on to New Hampshire and South Carolina, our campaign updated grassroots leaders just as we would with...

    Ok Freepers, put down the Trump/Cruz bats for a minute and consider this. According to polling a plurality of Iowa voters are either undecided or soft in their support for any candidate. Religious voters play a significant role in Iowa politics. Religious voters have demonstrated in the past a distaste for candidate who engage in the bare knuckle politics Cruz/Trump have recently engaged in. Historically polling in Iowa has been rather in accurate. Iowa almost always produces a surprise result. Rubio has gone full out of for the religious votes. His ads spend a lot of time with him talking...

    Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton said in an interview aired Wednesday night that special interest groups cannot buy her to gain access and influence as she continues to face scrutiny for taking large sums of money in speaking fees from the financial industry in recent years. Speaking over the phone with MSNBC‚Äôs Chris Matthews, Clinton was asked how she will respond to impending attack ads from her main primary challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I, Vt.), who is expected to target her ties to Wall Street. ‚ÄúAs anybody who knows me knows, you can‚Äôt buy me,‚ÄĚ Clinton said in response, defending...

    The National Post ^ | 12-19-2015 | Conrad Black
    The principal news about Donald Trump’s candidacy for the U.S. Republican presidential nomination is not the sometimes controversial things that he says, but the increasingly hysterical responses to him from the traditionally respectable political quarters that he discomforts. In this shrill political atmosphere, he is not the chief offender to civil standards of political discourse. Roger Cohen wrote in The New York Times last week, and he was reprinted in the National Post on Wednesday, that Trump was reminiscent of Hitler, that there were serious comparisons between Weimar Germany (1919-1933) and the contemporary United States, and that American politics is...
