    A few blocks from Moscow’s Lubyanka Building, which for decades served as the headquarters of the Soviet Union’s KGB security agency, the Russian Orthodox patriarch recently consecrated a church memorializing those martyred during communism’s reign. “While we were in procession around the church, people were standing with portraits of those martyred and those condemned to death” by the communist regime, said Orthodox Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, who heads the church’s department for external affairs. President Putin, who was a former KGB agent, as well as government officials and church leaders, were in attendance for the ceremony May 25. Patriarch Kirill’s...

    Trump Derangement Syndrome at the Emmy Awards revealed that in Hollywood, as in the USSR or North Korea, it's dangerous to deviate from the party line. (A very surprised Dolly Parton, who didn't expect her Nine to Five co-stars to go all "Cultural Revolution" on her at the Emmy Awards.)I didn't watch the Emmy Awards. In fact, I haven't watched the Emmy Awards in at least 20 years.I don't watch the Emmy Awards in part because, with a very few exceptions, I don't watch television. Those exceptions are: Dancing With The Stars (I know, I know, but I do love...
  • The forgotten Holocaust: How Stalin starved four million to death

    09/19/2017 9:40:01 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 52 replies
    One day in the summer of 1933, in a village in Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union, a little boy woke on top of the family stove. He was starving — not just hungry but genuinely starving. ‘Dad, I want to eat! Dad!’ he cried. But the house was cold and from his father there came no answer. The boy went over to his father, who was apparently still asleep. There was ‘foam under his nose’, he remembered. ‘I touched his head. Cold.’ Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4897164/The-forgotten-Holocaust-Ukraine-famine-1932-33.html#ixzz4tBtNyeT0 Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
  • Why you should never use the term 'anti-fascist'

    "No Trump! No wall! No U.S.A. at all." This was the chant of the violent, black-masked thugs who descended on an otherwise peaceful protest in Berkeley over the weekend. And it gives you a window into the tactics of the violent fringes of the Left. They attempt to lure in normal, reasonable people -- which they most certainly are not -- by showcasing a common enemy, such as racism or fascism. But that's just a sweetener for their real agenda item. Lots of normal, reasonable people oppose Donald Trump. Many of them oppose the border wall, too. But the third...
  • The Death of Stalin - Official Trailer

    In Cinemas Oct 20. The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci. In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive.

    Today June 3rd 2017, is what would've been Josephine Baker's 111th birthday. Google commemorated her life with a nice google doodle. As it often is whenever depicting famous 20th century celebrities, Google always has to choose individuals celebrated by leftists many with a track record filled with scandal usually one involving communism. While one can find fault with any celebrity patriot or pinhead, Google always seems to aim for those who are "victims" of McCarthyism, the catch term used by reds and their supporters to smear those exposing communist activities here and abroad Its no surprise that Google chooses another...

    Last week, I argued that denying the disastrous consequences of socialism is the Left’s equivalent of Holocaust denial. In response, I have been treated to many excellent examples of exactly the kind of denial I was talking about. Heck, the New York Times even obliged by publishing an op-ed on Saturday that hails the “moral authority” and “sense of humanity” of American socialists and communists. These are the same communists who toed Stalin’s party line, which is made clear when the author (who grew up among socialists of the era) describes the shattering impact on them of Khrushchev’s revelations about...

    Valery Rodos has spent most of his 74 years coming to grips with a father he barely knew. "I would give my arm, my leg, my life if only my father had become a tailor like his father," Rodos told RFE/RL's Russian Service. Instead, Boris Rodos built an extraordinary career as a torturer and executioner in Soviet dictator Josef Stalin's dreaded secret police, the NKVD. Recruited as a junior lieutenant in December 1936, within two years the elder Rodos was the assistant to the head of the notorious political division in Moscow. He personally tortured the great Russian writer Isaac...

    A newly released YouGov study aimed at surveying American attitudes towards socialism reveals just how little Americans know about communism and events surrounding the history of communist and socialist regimes. Among the study’s most alarming findings, one in four Americans (26 percent) believe that more people were killed under George W. Bush than under notorious Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. […] The survey focused largely millennials and found that they are severely lacking in knowledge when it comes to communism and its bloody history. The poll shows 25 percent of millennials have a favorable view of Vladimir Lenin and 42 percent...

    Ninety-nine years ago, Tsar Nicholas II abdicated, and, after a few months of weak parliamentary rule, the Bolsheviks seized power. We call that seizure the Russian (or October) Revolution, but it might better be designated the Bolshevik coup d’état. A party of 10,000 people gained control of an empire occupying one-sixth of the earth’s land area. From the start, they made up for their small numbers with outsized violence. If at first their executions of liberals, socialists, workers who showed independence, and peasants from whom grain was seized at gunpoint seemed like a short-term necessity, it soon became evident that...

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is getting some assistance from Joe Biden in his hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, on Monday. Hillary Clinton praised the vice president at the beginning of the rally, for being a consistent "fighter for families" and for his belief that "our economy should work for everyone, not just those at the top." She also said she'll continue his Cancer Moonshot initiative and ask him to keep doing what he's doing on it. Clinton also criticized Donald Trump on several fronts, including his child care proposal. She said it would provide little or no help families who...

    One of the biggest arguments made by liberals in favor of socialist government is the lack of unemployment. Unemployment levels according to liberals was zero in the USSR under Stalin and in Germany under Hitler. You would think, "Gosh! All I have to do is give up my constitutional liberties and let the state take care of me and my problems are over!" But not so fast! It never occurred to supporters of socialism just how they were able to do it! They didn't do it by giving everyone a job that paid. They did it through the enslavement and/or...

    It is a binary choice — that is obvious at least to every active duty member of the American military. Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be their commander in chief. Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will select the secretary of defense. Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will select the secretaries of the Army, Air Force and Navy, the service chiefs, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the nine heads of the Combatant Commands. ---------------------------------------------- Civilians, it seems to me, shouldn't sit out an election because they don't like the choices, not while American...

He would be leaving a legacy with much that was positive.” Oh, dear, that put the cat among the pigeons!
