  • Dunkirk - one Freeper's opinion

    19th June 2017
    I just got back from seeing Dunkirk and I was impressed. Speaking as a military historian it seemed accurate enough for a film that is quite clearly stated to be a fictional account with fictional characters not a docudrama. I was worried that a modern treatment might head towards the politically correct or the overly mawkish, but, it delivered what I was hoping to see. Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag...

    The new polymer bank notes appear to have had an unintended effect in stopping people snorting cocaine. The plastic notes have been leaving people with cut noses after they use them to sniff the drug.

    Real story!
    His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog. There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death. The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father...

  • Long-hidden Winston Churchill essay on aliens surfaces

    foxnews.com ^ | James Rogers
    A fascinating essay that lay hidden for decades reveals Winston Churchill’s views on alien life. The never-published essay has been in the archive of the National Churchill Museum in Fulton, Missouri since the 1980s, when it was given to the museum by the wife of Churchill’s publisher, who had died. Last year the museum invited Israeli astrophysicist Mario Livio to review the essay, which he discusses in an article published in the science journal Nature. Livio notes the British wartime leader’s passion for science and technology in the 1939 essay, as well as Churchill’s thoughts on extraterrestrials. Apparently influenced by...

    FULL TITLE: Trump reveals he WILL return bust of Winston Churchill to the Oval Office after it was ripped out by Obama in 'snub to Britain' A bust of Winston Churchill is set to be restored to the Oval Office by Donald Trump. The figurine of Britain's war-winning Prime Minister - who was half American and was the only person to be granted an honorary passport - was taken out by Barack Obama in favour of a similar statue of Martin Luther King. His decision to send the Churchill bust to the US Embassy in London caused outrage in Britain,...

    NIGEL FARAGE has revealed that Donald Trump will re-install a bust of Winston Churchill removed from the Oval Office by Barack Obama - in a clear sign of the friendship the new President wishes to foster with Britain. The interim Ukip leader said Mr Trump has already pushed Britain to the front of the queue for a favourable trade relationship and added that he is the man to forge stronger ties with the US as he flew to visit the business tycoon in his first days as President Elect. Mr Farage said: "We talked about the prospect of the United...

    Jerry Falwell Jr. said in an op-ed yesterday, that Trump is Churchillian. I agree 1000% with Jerry, Obama and Clinton are the Neville Chamberlains of our time and Donald John Trump is the Churchill of the Century. Obama lives in his pathetic neo-Islamic Afro-Centrist world, Hillary lives in her corrupt pay to play world, and Donald J. LIVES the world and KNOWS the truth. And he speaks the truth to the American people, unlike Obama, Hillary and Karl Rove. By the way, for you libtards out there, "Churchillian" doesn't mean a lizard who goes to church. But you're hopeless and...

    ...Churchill returned to Britain and penned a two-volume work, “The (Nile) River War,” in which he wrote: “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! … The fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog. … Insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. … A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. …” Churchill continued: “The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a...

    The College Fix ^ | June 29, 2016 | Kate Hardiman, University of Notre Dame
    The new Advanced Placement European History framework has received a makeover that eliminates religion’s influence on the development of Western Civilization, ignores Winston Churchill, whitewashes the evils of communism, and lauds the welfare state, according to David Randall with the right-of-center National Association of Scholars. […] Virtually all mention of religion in the 19th century is removed, and several key figures such as Christopher Columbus and Winston Churchill are not mentioned in the College Board’s framework, Randall said. […] The College Board’s new AP European History examination, which debuted last year, “turns Europe’s history into a foreshortened, neo-Marxist, generic narrative...

    FRANCE today told Britain to appoint a new prime minister within “a few days” and to immediately quit the EU by soon triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. Speaking in Berlin following a meeting of the six founding member states of the EU, French foreign minister Jean-Marc Ayrault told the UK not to play a “cat and mouse” game following the historic Brexit vote. He said: “Of course a new prime minister must be appointed, that will probably require a few days but this is quite urgent.

    The polls in England are closing early due to rain. But most likely, they are told to close because the vote may be against the government. So this may be yet another dirty trick to deny the people any real democratic process. This is more likely than not going to increase civil unrest from here on out. Just stupid. This is the poster child for why people should vote online. But then again, how can government rig the elections if they cannot be in charge of counting the votes?

    Donald Trump leaves for Scotland Thursday, briefly escaping his turbulent presidential campaign to attend the official opening of a remodeled golf resort bearing his name. The foreign trip, Trump's first as the presumptive Republican nominee, will bear none of the traditional marks of the ritualistic campaign voyage abroad that White House hopefuls have embarked on in recent years. Trump is not slated to meet with any foreign leaders or visit historical sites but instead attend to his multibillion-dollar business interests. The trip -- an unconventional venture emblematic of the real estate mogul's campaign -- comes on the heels of the...

    Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II thinks European courts that protect Islamist hate preachers “denigrate” Britain and has demanded her dinner guests “Give me THREE good reasons” to remain inside the European Union (EU). The loaded challenge has been widely interpreted as an expression of Euroscepticism since the Royal biographer Robert Lacey made the revelation in a blog post in the Daily Beast. The EU and the European Court of Human Rights are known for their history of protecting the “rights” of extremists and blocking deportations. Last night Breitbart London revealed that Islamist hate preacher, terrorist apologist and Caliphate agitator Anjem...
