France’s President began his term saying, “We have chased away the clouds, the sky is all ‘rose,’ referring to that favorite color of Communists, red. At an April 2012 campaign rally after a torrential rainstorm, Francois Hollande, on the eve of being the first Socialist Party member elected President of France in 24 years, boldly proclaimed: “We have chased away the clouds, the sky is all ‘rose.” The crowd roared their approval of Hollande’s imagery communism red triumphing in France. But as with all socialist policies, when they are tried in the real world, instead of just on paper, the […]
The Normandy invasions were so long and tediously prepared for, so intricate in design, so impossible to envision in the whole, or to envision having a chance of succeeding, that now 70 years later, without careful, thoughtful consideration with study of this most important of freedom crusades, we cannot comprehend it. Even with careful consideration, comprehension must surely be dim unless you were there. Reading of the sacrifices of those who perished and those who survived, is overwhelming.

Muammar Muhammad al-Gaddafi is a bad guy-and probably insane as well. He’s butchered his own people. His regime was implicated in the Lockerbie bombing (for which he eventually accepted responsibility). He makes rambling and incoherent speeches. He is accompanied by a bevy of hot Ukrainian nurses. In terms of playing the role of “insane dictator,” Gaddafi has done it all, and probably deserves some sort of lifetime achievement award for being a deranged leader. Then, enter the Obama administration. With socialists and radical Islamists engaging in the Tyrant Exchange Program, the “Arab Spring” soon found Gaddafi. True to form, he began brutally oppressing […]

While the Third Reich had less than a year left, there was much bloody and brutal fighting left to go. To properly commemorate the sacrifice and efforts of the rapidly departing, “greatest generation,” here is some comments from Ronald Reagan.
