  • Rachel Dolezal is not only a liar and a poseur but a fine art plagiarist

    Among the works by her exhibited at ArtPal is a painting with the title “The Shape of Our Kind,” ... A better title would have been ‘The Slave Ship.” That’s the title that Romantic landscape painter J.M.W. Turner gave to his 1840 masterpiece, which hangs in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. ... While Dolezal’s painting is not identical pixel for pixel, the style and content are unmistakably lifted from the Turner work. Unlike the Turner painting, which is priceless, Dolezal’s near-knockoff comes with a price: $5,100. Maybe a psychiatric evaluation wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.
  • BBC brands Churchill 'an enemy of the people' ... a deeply hated drunk [leftist lies]

    A BBC documentary depicting Winston Churchill as a drunken enemy of the working class has been branded as ‘graceless’ and ‘ill-informed’ by his grandson. Churchill: When Britain Said No, broadcast on BBC2 last week, was an account of how the wartime leader lost the 1945 General Election. It showed him as a deeply hated figure among the working class, in part because of the harsh economic policies he pursued as Chancellor in the 1920s. The most vocal critic of Churchill in the programme was a man presented as ‘activist and writer’, Dave Douglass. He said of Churchill: ‘His role during...

    With the US on the brink of signing an agreement that will lift the crippling economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for alleged guarantees that Iran will limit its nuclear ambitions to peaceful means, the Observer urges President Obama not to place his personal hunger for a legacy issue ahead of his most solemn duty – protecting America’s national security. Barack Obama has been compared to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain , who concluded the ill-fated Munich Pact with Hitler in 1938. But Chamberlain acted out of a sincere belief that he was avoiding a greater evil. Chamberlain was...

    Winston Churchill and Charles De Gaulle were eerily similar political figures, said Hillsdale politics professor Will Morrisey at a recent Kirby Center lecture in Washington, D.C. Both had to rally their people and country to fight against the German, Russian and eventually Soviet threats facing them. And, both went about it in different ways. It all began with geopolitics, which Morrisey defined as “the realm of necessity,” which “can be the realm of liberty.” Morrisey defined liberty as the “relationship of reciprocity, shared rule” like a household’s parent-child relationship. Both France and the United Kingdom were liberty-focused governments and were...

    When Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress on March 3rd, it was the third time he had done so. The only other person to address a joint session of Congress three times was the legendary British prime minister Winston Churchill. The parallels between the two leaders do not end there. Both warned the world of mortal dangers that others ignored, in hopes that those dangers would go away. In the years leading up to World War II, Churchill tried to warn the British, and the democratic nations in general, of what a monstrous threat Hitler...

(Daily Signal) In the 1930s, Winston Churchill warned Britain and the Western world about the dangers of Adolf Hitler and Germany. It was the strongest warning ever by a politician! Still, that warning was ignored and millions of Europeans lost their lives. Today Benjamin Netanyahu will warn the West of the perils of a nuclear Islamic Iran.

    When Obama first entered the White House, he had the bust of Winston Churchill removed. It was assumed it was because of British Colonialism in Kenya. Maybe it was due to things said about Obama’s religion. Quoted from Churchill over 100 years ago: "How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the...

    Sir Winston Spencer-Churchill 1874-1965 He was that providential man who, more than any other figure, kept Hitler's Third Reich from an even longer and more murderous run. He also, in a famous speech in Fulton, Missouri, first named the Iron Curtain and the Cold War. We've long lacked leaders of such courage and clarity. But there are deeper reasons for remembering Churchill. Witness this lecture last Thursday by my friend Leon Kass.

Last Friday marked a half century since his funeral, an occasion that itself led to numerous commemorations and paeans to the British Bulldog, whose moral courage and patriotism helped steer his nation through World War II. Churchill, after all, has been posthumously voted by his countrymen as the greatest Briton. The presence (and absence) of his bust in the White House was enough to create political...

Churchill was not only a courageous leader but an eminent historian and lucid writer who left us with volumes of valuable insight and wisdom. We have been flipping through his, “The Gathering Storm,” which recounts among other parts of history the lead up to World War II, when Churchill stood as a lone voice against Nazi Germany — a threat he so clearly saw while the world dithered.

    Last Wednesday, President Obama gave his latest installment of the big lie – his State of the Union address. Saturday marked the 50th anniversary of the death of one of history's true giants – Winston Churchill. Obama would need stilts to achieve pygmy stature. Could two democratically elected leaders provide more of a contrast? Churchill was in office for most of four decades before becoming Britain's wartime prime minister – including serving in the House of Commons, as Chancellor of the Exchequer, First Lord of the Admiralty (in both World Wars) and Colonial Secretary. Obama spent less than two years...

    Where is the Churchill in this superficial age? Today and all next week, as we mark the 50th anniversary of his death, this paper will be celebrating the man widely acclaimed as the greatest British statesman of the 20th century – some would say of all time. To an astonishing degree, it was Winston Churchill whose single-minded sense of purpose inspired the nation with hope in 1940, when Britain and her empire stood alone against Hitler and all seemed lost. Indeed, it is hard to exaggerate how much the free world owes to the vision, energy and determination of this...

    Fifty years ago this Saturday, former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill died at age 90. Churchill is remembered for his multiple nonstop careers as a statesman, cabinet minister, politician, journalist, Nobel laureate historian, and combat veteran. He began his career serving the British military as a Victorian-era mounted lancer and ended it as custodian of Britain's nuclear deterrent. But he is most renowned for an astounding five-year-tenure as Britain's wartime prime minister from May 10, 1940, to June 26, 1945, when he was voted out of office not long after the surrender of Nazi Germany. Churchill took over the day...

    One of the nation’s best loved countrymen, Winston Churchill is best remembered for his role in overcoming the Nazi threat, and later for denouncing the Soviet regime’s Iron Curtain. But few are aware of his fascination with the orient and his strong admiration for Islam, which even led him to adopting Arab attire in private. Now a newly uncovered letter sent to Churchill by his future sister-in-law has revealed that, such was his obsession, she was moved to urge him not to convert to Islam. In 1907, Churchill wrote to Lady Litton: “You will think me a pasha [rank of...

    A painting by Sir Winston Churchill sold for £1.8million last night – a record price for a work of art by the former Prime Minister. The Goldfish Pool at Chartwell, labelled 'extremely personal' by auctioneers, had been estimated to be worth between £400,000 and £600,000. Of the 11 pieces of artwork sold at Sotheby's in London last night, at least five went to American buyers. Two were bought by UK buyers and a further four remained anonymous. A Sotheby's spokesman said: 'Churchill's exceptional ability as a painter was celebrated.'
  • Winston Churchill Points to National Socialism as a US Problem

    ....................................... ..............Churchill notes that socialism grafts itself onto nationalism and the particular features of the nations it has infected. In Germany, the Weimar regime was destroyed and Hitler was propelled to power through national patriotism, tradition, and pride combined with discontent about inequalities of wealth. In Russia, the program of Communism was buttressed by national sentiment and imperialist aspirations. The next country Churchill mentions, in a shift that must be shocking to those who wish to read the article as simply a pro-New Deal argument, is the United States, which he says has experienced developments similar to those inspired by...

The previously unseen memorandum from the FBI archives details how Britain’s wartime leader made his views known to a visiting American politician in 1947. Churchill believed a pre-emptive strike on Stalin’s Russia might be the only way to stop Communism conquering the West. The note, written by an FBI agent, reports that Churchill urged Right-wing Republican Senator Styles Bridges to persuade President Harry Truman to launch a nuclear attack which would ‘wipe out’ the Kremlin...

    ...the United States stands at this time at the pinnacle of world power. It is a solemn moment for the American Democracy. For with primacy in power is also joined an awe-inspiring accountability to the future. ....when American military men approach some serious situation they are wont to write at the head of their directive the words "over-all strategic concept". There is wisdom in this, as it leads to clarity of thought. What then is the over-all strategic concept which we should inscribe to-day? It is nothing less than the safety and welfare, the freedom and progress, of all the...

    Obama truly is not like us; his beliefs are utterly alien to our political tradition. That is why this administration violates all the rules. It is not an accident. It is simply who they are. The act of sending the bust of Churchill back to Britain signaled Obama's hatred for the Anglo-American political tradition, including the US Constitution. In Russia, Putin has introduced a 14% flat tax, and is boosting traditional morality. Only Obama still harbors that old post-colonial rage against white imperialists, which is why he can't tell the difference between murderous terror gangs and democratic revolutions.

    The Strange Christmas Eve of 1941 Seventeen days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, on Christmas Eve in 1941, a radio broadcast from the White House reached millions of Americans just as our young men readied themselves to fight in foreign lands and our young woman resigned themselves to long hours in dark factories. A generation that spent a decade weathering the Great Depression now, unbelievably, would face an even deadlier challenge in the form of a world war. The radio broadcast was given to commemorate the lighting of the National Christmas tree but President Roosevelt would share the micrphone...

    WASHINGTON – The Who’s Roger Daltrey brought some revolution to the Capitol Wednesday during the installation of a bust of late British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, singing his classic “Won’t Get Fooled Again” to entrenched U.S. lawmakers. “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss!” the British rock royal belted in his famous American-ized twang, backed by a group of gospel singers, guitar and piano, as the graying congressional leadership looked on in the Capitol rotunda Wednesday. “It was very pertinent to the occasion,” Daltrey told the Post, declining to elaborate further on his song selection. “Isn’t it pretty...

    A statue of the late prime minister will be added to the Capitol collection after President Obama removed a similar artwork from the Oval Office, opting for Martin Luther King Jr. instead. "Never, never, never give up." Republicans in Congress are taking Winston Churchill's words to heart. A bust of the late prime minister will be added to the Capitol collection in the National Statuary Hall, after President Obama chucked the bust that had been loaned to the U.S. from the British. The artwork has become a political hot potato, with Republicans slamming the President for offending America's ally by...

    In May 1940 the world faced a menace unlike any it had ever seen. After a decade of economic body blows, much of the world was weary. With the carnage of WWI only 20 years past few people had the stomach to fight for much of anything. It was only with great reluctance that in September 1939 the British and the French declared war on Germany after they invaded Poland with the Soviet Union. Nonetheless, even after the declaration, after years of appeasement most British felt that there was little they could do to stop Adolph Hitler. Things were indeed...

    Bank of England bosses thought twice about putting Sir Winston Churchill on the new £5 note—because they didn’t want to upset the Germans. Officials warned Sir Mervyn King, then Governor of the Bank of England, that Churchill’s wartime record might make him highly controversial, documents obtained by The Mail on Sunday show. The same officials also insisted on carrying out a background check on Jane Austen, the prim spinster author of Pride And Prejudice who will appear on the £10 note from 2017, to reassure themselves there were “no issues in her private life”. …

    In this short video, Bill Whittle summarizes much history and shows its relevance to America today.At the end of Mr. Whittle's video, he asks who and where is our Winston Churchill today. He does not provide an answer, but urges us to find him before it's too late. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQtJVjVtVLM?feature=player_detailpage] Video linkCan we? Will we? There are very few of Winston Churchill's caliber today and President Obama even got rid of the Churchill bust that he apparently thought disgraced "His" White House. LTC Allen West (U.S. Army, ret.) stands out. Perhaps there are others with suitable military backgrounds, knowledge of...

    IN 1943 when Noreen Riols was just shy of 18 she decided to join the Wrens for the simple reason that they had "better hats". Her ambition was short-lived, however, as Noreen who speaks fluent French, was deemed far more useful elsewhere. She was immediately dispatched to London's Baker Street and the headquarters of SOE (Special Operations Executive). Here she was signed up to SOE, known as Churchill's secret army. She would join F-Section (the F stood for France), which was led by Colonel Maurice Buckmaster (known as "Buck"), in a vital role helping to train agents to support the...

    Winston Churchil Disliked Indians particularly Gandhi . His most famous quote on Gandhi reveals his bias : It was while addressing the Council of the West Essex Unionists on February 23, 1931, that Churchill remarked of how, to him and most likely to much of his audience, it “was alarming to see Mr. Gandhi, a seditious Middle Temple lawyer, now posing as a fakir of a type well known in the East, striding half-naked up the steps of the Viceregal Palace, while he is still organising and conducting a defiant campaign of civil disobedience, to parley on equal terms with...
