    A panel of judges on the Colorado Court of Appeals heard arguments from attorneys Wednesday about whether Ward Churchill should be allowed to teach again at the University of Colorado. As part of the appeal of the verdict in his lawsuit against CU, Churchill is asking that he be reinstated and paid the $1 he was awarded by a jury that agreed he was unlawfully fired for exercising his right to free speech. CU's regents voted 8-1 to fire Churchill in 2007 because of academic-misconduct violations, after faculty members charged with investigating his body of work found patterns of plagiarism,...

    When President Barack Obama addresses the nation on Iraq tonight, his Oval Office setting will be sporting a brand new look. While the president and his family were away on vacation in Martha's Vineyard, workers installed new wallpaper, a new rug, new chairs, lamps and a coffee table. The famous bust of Winston Churchill has been removed and replaced with one of civil rights hero Martin Luther King. Officials allowed photographers their first look hours before Mr Obama was due to make a speech today. The rug - a honey-coloured carpet with the the presidential seal - has a border...

    Under a slate grey sky, the words of Winston Churchill rang defiantly around Westminster: 'Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.' It may be 70 years old, but the resounding call to arms during the Battle of Britain still stiffened the sinew bringing pride and not a few tears yesterday. Churchill's famous address was delivered by actor Robert Hardy at 3.52pm  -  exactly the time they were originally spoken in Parliament by the wartime Prime Minister on August 20, 1940.   Former fighter pilots, Churchill's daughter Lady Soames and...

    JERUSALEM — Two photographs adorn the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Together they illuminate a portentous fact: No two leaders of democracies are less alike — in life experiences, temperaments and political philosophies — than Netanyahu, the former commando and fierce nationalist, and Barack Obama, the former professor and post-nationalist. One photograph is of Theodor Herzl, born 150 years ago. Dismayed by the eruption of anti-Semitism in France during the Dreyfus Affair at the end of the 19th century, Herzl became Zionism's founding father. Long before the Holocaust, he concluded that Jews could find safety only in a national...

    Broadcast to the United States from London Before the House of Commons summer recess, Churchill makes one final effort to arouse the Great Republic, his term of endearment for the United States, from its reveries, barely four weeks before the outbreak of war in Europe. Holiday time, ladies and gentlemen! Holiday time, my friends across the Atlantic! Holiday time, when the summer calls the toilers of all countries for an all too brief spell from the offices and mills and stiff routine of daily life and breadwinning, and sends them to seek if not rest at least change in new...

How ironic that Obama’s worst rhetorical hour came in the very same week we celebrate the 70th anniversary of perhaps the greatest speech ever delivered in the English language: Winston Churchill’s “Finest Hour” address. Seven decades ago today, on June 18, 1940, Churchill rallied Britain and the world to fight on in a battle he declared would determine “the survival of Christian civilization.”...

    A photograph of Winston Churchill giving his victory salute has been airbrushed to remove his signature cigar. In the well-known original image, Churchill makes a "V" shaped symbol with his fingers – while gripping a cigar in the corner of his mouth. But in a reproduction of the picture, hanging over the main entrance to a London museum celebrating the wartime leader, he has been made into a non-smoker through the use of image-altering techniques. It is unclear who is responsible for doctoring the photograph, with the museum – The Winston Churchill's Britain at War Experience – claiming not to...

    Its been said that life often imitates art. However, I never imagined that the satirical airbrushing campaign undertaken by the rabid anti-smoking lobby at the end of “Thank You For Smoking” would ever actually be replicated in real life. Apparently, as the Daily Mail reports, I was wrong (h/t Adam S Baldwin): It seems the man who steered Britain through the most dangerous period of its recent history may have fallen victim to the modern curse of political correctness.

    Shortly after his inauguration in January 2009, President Barack Obama removed the bronze bust of Winston Churchill that had been displayed in the Oval Office as a post-9/11 commemoration from Great Britain. Was that just a décor makeover or was it symbolic of unease with what Churchill stood for — the rejection of Neville Chamberlain's peace at any price and the courage to do what it takes to defeat evil? A fourth round of sanctions were imposed on Iran last week. Yet the times continue to have similarities to the late 1930s, when weakness and disunity among allied powers enabled...

    This Sunday past was the anniversary of D-Day, an event so important to recall. If many do not recall (including our President from whom no statement can be found at this time of writing), it is because our culture and its leaders have failed to truly learn. They have failed to broadly inculcate the lessons of that great global conflict -- one that led to such massive death and culminated in such compelling victory over tyrannical evil.

Well, someone did just that today, because it wasn't just any old cigar -- it was one that belonged to Winston Churchill that he never got around to smoking. Initial estimates for the Cuban cigar by Camacho ranged from $1,500 to $2,200, according to the Christie's London auction company.

    Having read Churchill’s The Gathering Storm for the third or fourth time, it strikes me as frighteningly inauspicious, and not only for the United States today. Churchill was a leading proponent of stopping Hitler before stopping him would involve the massive devastation inflicted on much of the world when World War II eventually came. He noted: We must regard as deeply blameworthy before history … [all British parties] during this fatal period. Delight in smooth-sounding platitudes, refusal to face unpleasant facts, desire for popularity and electoral success irrespective of the vital interests of the State, genuine love of peace and...

After a debacle, he fell into disfavor with the public. He was discounted as a politician and stayed so for many years. Then came a crisis, which he had warned was coming and which the nation's leadership bungled grossly. He became his nation's leader not because he was loved, but because he was right and had the pluck to carry the fight.  He was Winston Churchill.  Churchill's time came. Could Newt Gingrich's...

One in five (19 per cent) adults failed to name Churchill, with the figure rising to 32 per cent of 25 to 34-year-olds and 44 per cent of those aged 16 to 24. Following the pattern, researchers projected the rough date when the leaders would no longer be recognised, with Churchill's demise predicted in 80 years' time.They said the...

    A STRUGGLING health authority shelled out £10,000 on a survey asking staff if they thought HITLER was COOL. The bizarre questionnaire also asked NHS workers to compare the Nazi dictator to their OWN chief executive.

The survey — called Making Leadership Cool — was rubber-stamped by NHS West Midlands Strategic Health Authority.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Cheyenne, comes three days after UW banned Ayers, a University of Illinois-Chicago education professor with a radical past, from using any university venue for a planned April 28 lecture. The lawsuit alleges the ban is unconstitutional under First Amendment rights to free speech and to assemble. In 1969, Ayers co-founded the Weather Underground, a Marxist-Leninist anti-war group that claimed responsibility for a...

    Of Winston Churchill, Paul Johnson writes that his “orations, in print, usually carry all the resonance of his voice with them: they are magnificent prose, too.” One can reverse the point and apply it to Paul Johnson. His writings are like his speaking; he reads his lectures from a text, but with animation. He holds the podium to give him four points of anchor—feet and hands. He sways back and forth. He comes up on his toes. His voice rises and grows from the strength of his chest, eyes twinkling, body and voice keeping time together. It is like hearing...

    My book, Intellectual Assault: Academic Anti-Americanism and the Distortion of 9/11, is now available for purchase. The book uses a massive quantity of quotes by professors and academic administrators about 9/11 in the aftermath of that event to examine the mentality of those who control higher education in this country. The result, I'm sad to say, is an unremitting indictment of the United States as the villain who precipitated the terrorist attacks and therefore got what it deserved. For those who were unaware of the depths of anti-Americanism in academia, this book will serve as an alarming wake-up call. For...

    attorney David Lane, whose other high-profile clients include Balloon Boy dad Richard Heene and wrongfully convicted Timothy Masters, remains Churchill's attorney. And he makes it clear that the case is about far more than Churchill's likening of 9/11 victims to "little Eichmanns." The American Civil Liberties Union has already filed a brief in support of Churchill's appeal. But like every court action, this one has to go through a slew of preliminary steps before reaching the consideration stage. In other words, the Churchill matter could remain unresolved for quite some time to come, even though the comments that started the...

    One of the first decisions President Obama made upon taking office was to remove a bust of Sir Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and send it packing to the British Embassy. The gift, a present from the British people in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, was pride of place in the White House under George W. Bush, but was seen as surplus to requirements by his successor. Hardly a good omen for an increasingly unpopular president, whose nation is actively engaged in a global war against a brutal enemy that seeks the destruction...

    Americans tend to revere our preeminent honorary citizen, Sir Winston Churchill. That view is apparently not shared by Barak Obama, who made one of his first official acts the unceremonious return to the British embassy of a bust of the great wartime leader that George W. Bush had received from Tony Blair shortly after 9/11. snip Winston Churchill considered his inability to prevent the carnage of World War II to be a personal failure. In truth, then – as now – the responsibility ultimately rests not with the watchman who sounds the alarm, but with those who fail to heed...

The United States government had made an absolute commitment not to let post-war Europe separate out into distinct areas of political influence. But now this was precisely what was being allowed to happen. Russian behaviour was worsening by the day as Stalin's all-conquering men rolled up the countries in the east and made them satellites of Moscow, in defiance...

    Last week we saw Barack Obama’s “Wile E. Coyote” style diplomacy blow up in his face. Once again he has embarrassed America on the world stage. The headlines from the Democrat controlled media screamed in outrage over the United Kingdom’s release of a murdering Libyan terrorist. Wile E. Obama’s continuing sharp insults to the British caught up to him and blew up in our faces. In the world of international diplomacy everything is connected. Obama’s anti British history Obama’s deep anti British feelings were learned at the knee of his Kenyan grandfather. He was a nationalistic Mau-Mau, a group bent...

    French anti-war campaigners have desecrated a statue of Winston Churchill in central Paris on the anniversary of the city's liberation from Nazi rule. The night time attack saw the bronze hands of the £250,000 statue daubed in red paint. The initials RH were also daubed on the statue, perhaps a reference to Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler's deputy, who flew to Britain at the height of the Second World War to allegedly try and make peace. Instead, Churchill had him thrown in prison in 1941, and the war continued for a further four years. After the war, Hess was tried at...

    On Sunday, September 3, 1939 - 70 years ago next month - Britain declared war on Germany in fulfilment of its pledge to aid Poland, invaded by the Nazis. 'I know now that it will come to me to deal with Mr Hitler,' Winston Churchill told a cousin a few days earlier. He perceived his own hour of destiny at hand. That same afternoon, he was summoned to Downing Street by Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. For most of the decade Churchill had been a scourge of the Tory government. From 'the wilderness' of the Commons back benches, he denounced the...

    Journalism: After the eulogies, the fact remains that "the most trusted man in America" betrayed that trust. He helped snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Vietnam and tried hard to do the same in Iraq.President Obama on Friday praised Walter Cronkite as a journalistic icon, calling the CBS anchor the "voice of certainty in an uncertain world." More to the point, he was the father of advocacy journalism, the patron saint of media bias. He went from reporting news to recreating it in his own image. Far from the image of the patriotic war correspondent, Cronkite was a...

    Ward "Little Eichmanns" Churchill has met his own Little Big HornAcademic Fraud and pretend Indian Ward Churchill got the ultimate smackdown from Judge Larry Naves. No money, no reinstatement, nada. He even took back the $1 settlement the last jury gave him. You get a big award of doodly-squat, tonto! Thus ends the Churchill-CU Circus. Naves is a well-respected judge appointed by Democrat Roy Romer, so this will not be overturned. Even the Daily Camera, newspaper of the People's Republic of Boulder, says it's past time to kick this charlatan to the curb. Native American-Hippie Chic Here in the West,...

    (This is part 2 of an article.) Recently neo-fascists opposed to Sonia Sotomayor, Barack Obama’s nominee to the United States Supreme Court, have argued that she doesn’t respect the “sanctity” of the law and chooses instead to be guided by her personal beliefs. But if there is such a thing as “sanctity” of the law, why are so many Supreme Court cases decided by five-four votes split along ideological lines? Where is this concern when self-loathing Clarence Thomas uses his experiences at Yale University, not the law, to dismantle affirmative action programs, or when Antonin Scalia unethically hears cases where...

    Ward Churchill could find himself on the hook for up to $50,000 in out-of-pocket costs the University of Colorado incurred fighting the lawsuit the former ethnic studies professor filed against it, CU's lead attorney said Wednesday. CU attorney Patrick O'Rourke said he plans to file for recovery of those costs -- which include flying witnesses in and out of Colorado and creating deposition transcripts -- over the next 15 days and said the amount would be in the "five figures" and likely just shy of $50,000. "We've got to go through and add it up -- it's not a staggering...

    Al Gore likens fight against climate change to battle with Nazis Al Gore today compared the battle against climate change with the struggle against the Nazis. The former US Vice President said the world lacked the political will to act and invoked the spirit of Winston Churchill by encouraging leaders to unite their nations to fight climate change. He also accused politicians around the world of exploiting ignorance about the dangers of global warming to avoid difficult decisions. Speaking in Oxford at the Smith School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment, sponsored by The Times, Mr Gore said: “Winston...
