  • Russian communists support Gaddafi and inadvertently reveal their inglorious past

    Paranoid Russian anti-Americanism resulted in the glorification of Muammar Gaddafi. During recent the Victory Day parade a group of the pro-Putin supporters hold banners with the slogans about "Revolutionary Gaddafi". One of the banners read: "They reached Brest and we will get to Benghazi. Glory to the Antifascists of the Muammar Gaddafi". However this slogan shows the degree of the confusion of these people.

    - To be perfectly honest, I'm sick and tired of people of lesser intelligence and historical teaching who fail to understand just why they can go and enjoy a hamburger at a mall without the fear of their family being targeted by V2 rockets. A close reltive of mine fought the troops of Stalin, got shot, recovered and then went back to the front. Another one drove buses from Sweden to Nazi concentration camps and back. I'm no hero. I was born in 1969. But I regard my ancestors of that time heroes. They fought Hitler, Stalin and saved lives....

    The Week ^ | May 17, 2011
    UFO conspiracy theorists may be in for a letdown. A new book — Area 51 by Annie Jacobsen — says no alien spacecraft crashed to Earth in the famous so-called Roswell Incident of 1947. According to Britain's Telegraph, Jacobsen says the craft that smashed into the desert in a terrible storm was actually a top-secret Soviet plane with "grotesque, child-size aviators" bred in horrific human experiments and sent by Joseph Stalin to create panic in the U.S. Is that possible — or is this story even harder to believe than tales of shipwrecked aliens?

    Ukraine is divided once again over its wartime history. A bitter row has erupted in the west of the country over the Soviet Red banner - an exact replica of the one which flew above the Reichstag in May 1945 as the Nazi regime collapsed. ­When the Ukrainian parliament passed a law to allow the Soviet Red banner fly on Victory Day this year along with the country’s national flag, it sparked uproar among some who view the Soviet era as a time of oppression. “Those who initiated this law are against our country. They must hand over their passports...

    Winter is bleak enough as it is. This year the gloom was deepened by the publication of How to Change the World: Tales of Marx and Marxism, by Eric Hobsbawm, one of Britain’s most feted historians, and, oh yes, a man who stuck with the Communist party until 1991 despite a global killing spree that took perhaps one hundred million lives. Naturally Hobsbawm’s new book has triggered the usual hosannas from the usual congregation for, to quote the Guardian, this “grand old man.” There had, of course, been that minor unpleasantness back in the 1990s when Hobsbawm had appeared to...

    Last week on his show Piers Morgan Tonight, the smitten host gushed that his impromptu guest Charlie Sheen (before his complete meltdown) was "the Che Guevara of television" and "one of life’s great characters." What a wild and crazy guy, that Che Guevara! CNN was the first U.S. network Fidel Castro bestowed with a Havana Bureau, so Morgan’s epic stupidity might be superseded by other factors here. And Sheen’s meltdown has greatly accelerated since then. But Piers Morgan’s stupidity still presents an irresistible lure. So let's get started. .

    It was a blast from the past this week, as mostly forgotten one-time Life cover boy, radical historian and Yale Professor turned community organizer Staughton Lynd surfaced to add… nothing, to the subject of the Rosenbergs and the atomic bomb spy plot. His article in the Marxist rag, Monthly Review (who knew that still existed, either) was ironically titled, “Is There Anything More to Say about the Rosenberg Case?”I’m willing to say there might be—but Lynd sure didn’t prove it. But he did find some novel ways to say nothing new about the case while exposing the moral idiocy of...

    When I first heard about how quickly the Left jumped at the chance to blame conservatives for the AZ shootings, I thought of the Reichstag fire in Berlin in 1933 and the murder of Sergei Kirov in Leningrad in 1934. To this day, the truth about these 2 events has never completely been discovered, but in both cases, they served as pretexts for bloody purges of political opposition by totalitarian dictators.We have no way to prove whether a similar event happened here, but IMO, there are some coincidences. How, for example, was this clearly disturbed shooter able to procure a...

    In 1928, as America lurched towards the Wall Street Crash, Joseph Stalin revealed his master plan - nature was to be conquered by science, Russia to be made brutally, glitteringly modern and the world transformed by communist endeavour. Into the heart of this vision stepped Trofim Lysenko, a self-taught geneticist who promised to turn Russian wasteland into a grain-laden Garden of Eden. Today, Lysenko is a byword for fraud but in Stalin’s Russia his outlandish ideas about genetic inheritance and evolution became law. They reveal a world of science distorted by ideology, where ideas were literally a matter of life...

    At the end of November something historically quite significant happened in Russia. The State Duma passed a statement conceding Soviet responsibility for the Katyn Woods massacre, one of the 20th century’s worst war crimes. The roots of this atrocity date to September 1939, when the Nazis and Bolsheviks jointly invaded, annihilated, and partitioned Poland. The Soviets seized thousands of Polish military officers as prisoners. Their fate was sealed on March 5, 1940 when Stalin signed their death warrant, condemning 21,857 of them to “the supreme penalty: shooting.” This we now know conclusively through the surviving NVKD document. The officers were...

The term coined in the book’s title encapsulates the thesis. The “bloodlands” are the stretch of territory from the Baltic to the Black Sea where Europe’s most murderous regimes did their most murderous work. The...

    In previous articles I brought up how liberals want the state to control the worlds food supply. Liberals believe that the private sector should not have a say in growing distributing and selling food. The state along with one world communist government should only have a say in those matters. Of course any student of history can see where that has lead, from food shortages and blights in the middle ages thanks to feudalism to hundreds of millions dying under communist made food shortages in Ukraine and China. Farms and grocery stores are not the only things liberals want to...

Go to, type in his name in the search engine, and see how many school districts show up in use of his opus. Yet and still, can you trust the fiction of a man who proved himself to be so factually, if not ethically, challenged? “Many of those who later became useful stooges of the party went through their own baptism of mud at the hands of the comrades,” Eugene Lyons...

    The phrase 'useful idiots', supposedly Lenin’s, refers to Westerners duped into saying good things about bad regimes. In political jargon it was used to describe Soviet sympathisers in Western countries and the attitude of the Soviet government towards them. Useful idiots, in a broader sense, refers to Western journalists, travellers and intellectuals who gave their blessing – often with evangelistic fervour – to tyrannies and tyrants, thereby convincing politicians and public that utopias rather than Belsens thrived.

    Does Obama’s anti-democratic ideology result from his dysfunctional childhood? An intriguing book, Faith of the Fatherless: The Psychology of Atheism, by Paul Vitz, argues this type background is a common precursor to the classic tyrant’s personality. This suggests Barack’s beef with America might result from his own deficient past. Does it matter the source of our politician’s mental makeup? Of course it does. After all, we expect leaders to make policy based on empirical knowledge, not just knee-jerk reaction to past trauma. For example, would Americans be pleased if the president outlawed taxis because his pooch was run over by...

    Sixty-nine-years ago today, 3.5 million German troops, plus another million from Nazi allies, invaded the USSR. (Geographically, the land now makes up Lithuania, Belarus, eastern Poland, Ukraine, and Moldavia). It was the largest army ever assembled, the most ambitious invasion ever attempted, and it led to the most staggering land battles ever fought—and to casualty rates that can only be rivaled by the mass starvations of the worst twentieth century tyrannies. That the opposing sides were in fact two of those tyrannies is not incidental. The Nazi’s goals were to kill Jews, enslave Slavs, steal resources (especially food and oil),...

The Communist boss is said to have feared that Hitler’s replacement as Nazi leader would make peace with the Western Allies. Stalin hoped that by perusing the war until the bitter end he would be able to destroy Germany as a future threat and also gain more influence in Eastern Europe.

Sugary sodas no longer have a home in the city's 250 beverage vending machines and unhealthy foods in the 75 snack machines in city facilities are next. “I asked the staff to remove the high-calorie soda drinks from our vending machines,” Sculley said. “I'm a fitness person, and I care about our employees, and I want them to be healthy.

    Moscow, May 6, Interfax - The Moscow Patriarchate believes that no accomplishments of the USSR, including the victory over fascism, can justify Stalin's crimes.

Single images whirling by so quickly that the eye is fooled into perceiving motion. With each flicker, our memories are replaced with fantasies. Take for example, the 1991 movie, "Guilty By Suspicion", starring Robert De Niro:

Oftentimes, these impulsive decisions can have disastrous consequences. There is nothing meritorious about change in and of itself. The virtuous person prayerfully reasons through the options before making decisions. Men with little virtue grab desperately for anything that, on the surface, appears will improve their...
