  • 'Never Again!' Belongs to the Holocaust— Not an Anti-gun Rights Book and Campaign

    I am a Holocaust concentration camp survivor. I am one of a rapidly dwindling number of eyewitnesses to the Nazi Holocaust, the most systematic genocide of all time. Today, misinformed students cynically led by progressives are using that event and its rallying call to confiscate guns and turn them over to government—the exact opposite of the core lessons to be learned. This is so fundamentally wrong no justification can excuse it. Naming a book Never Again!—which is a desperate call to arms—to address drug-addled, video-mesmerized, psychotic, murderous classmates —misappropriates and reverses the central messages and lessons of the Holocaust.

  • The Lone Survivor of the 'Struma' (Today in History February 24, 1942)

    In 1942, a Soviet submarine in the Black Sea torpedoed and sank the Struma, a ship filled with almost 800 Jewish refugees headed from Romania to the Holy Land. David Stoliar, the lone survivor, agreed to share his story with SPIEGEL ONLINE. David Stoliar's neat house sits atop a hill on the edge of Bend, a small city in central Oregon. A few steps lead up to the front door. Stoliar's wife, Marda, opens, followed by a happy beagle. "Come in," she says cheerfully. "Come in." Her husband is waiting in the living room, surrounded by souvenirs and family photos....

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Friday she will not attend President Trump’s first State of the Union address following his vulgar remarks aimed at Haiti, El Salvador and African nations. “Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.” “Someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in?"

    (full article title: 'Survivor' Castaway Zeke Smith Outed as Transgender by Fellow Contestant Jeff Varner During Tribal Council) Zeke Smith is trying to make the best of the situation. The two-time Survivor player was outed as transgender by fellow tribe member Jeff Varner during tribal council on Wednesday's episode of Game Changers. Varner, who told host Jeff Probst that he felt he was going home earlier in the tribal council, decided to reveal one last piece of information in the hopes of saving himself. "There is deception here. Deceptions on levels, Jeff, that these guys don't even understand," Varner said,...

    HONOLULU -- He walked slowly, an entourage of help ensuring he didn't slip. People in the bar clapped as he moved past. Then Lauren Bruner gave up his cane and settled at a table against the wall where his picture had been hanging for years. Dwight Lockwood, reed-thin in shorts and flip-flops, darted behind the bar and quickly popped the cap off a Kona Longboard beer. "It's his favorite," he said. The drink was on the house, of course. Bruner took a swig. Around him, dozens of people waited to shake his hand, share a story or take a picture....

    I’ve never been interested in the survivor type programs, including Donald Trump’s sophisticated program “The Apprentice“, but am familiar with the basic way they work. “The Apprentice” provides the best model for choosing a president, but the political parties should also consider the process of “voting people off the island”. On the basic “Survivor” programs contestants are divided into tribes and work together to survive in a wilderness setting. They conduct periodic votes in which individuals are gradually “voted off the island” until only one remains. On “The Apprentice” contestants are assigned business related tasks. Donald Trump, or comparable people...

    2.6k1776 During today’s Congressional hearing over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted babies and their body parts, pro-life advocate Melissa Ohden, an abortion survivor, told Congress that Planned Parenthood would have killed her if given the chance. The LifeNews writer said there are many other abortion survivors like her who are speaking up against abortion. Today was the first hearing in Congress’ multi-committee investigation of the Planned Parenthood abortion business after a series of nine videos exposed how it is potentially illegally selling aborted babies and profiting from the sales. “I’m here today to share my story to not only highlight...
