  • (vanity) How will you celebrate Earth Day?

    04/20/2017 11:28:59 AM PDT · by Gman · 86 replies
    So, how will Freepers be celebrating Earth Day 2017? Personally, I will be clearing an area in the backyard to set up for a compost pile and organic vegetable garden. But first, I need to burn the tires that are there; and I'm thinking that my used motor oil will make an excellent accelerant.
  • How Lenin’s Bolsheviks Brought Communism to Russia

    All throughout 1917, the toils of war and cascading revolutionary activity overturned the Russian Czarist government and established the left-leaning but democratically principled Provisional Government. The new authorities made preparations to hold elections. For the many political philosophies and groups then existing in Russian intelligentsia, it was an exciting prospect. In March 1917, Czar Nicholas II was deposed and forced to abdicate following major bloodshed in St. Petersburg, then the capital of the Russian Empire. But the vast nation, containing many different cultures and races across about 20 percent of the world’s land area, had never been a democracy and...
  • Russian Church Calls for Vladimir Lenin’s Body to Be Removed From Moscow’s Red Square

    It’s been nearly 100 years since the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution was carried out, placing a communist regime in power of a nation-state for the first time in human history. While the first Soviet leader, Vladimir Lenin, only ruled for about seven years until his death in January 1924, his legacy lasted much longer. After his death, Lenin’s body was embalmed before it was placed in a building in Moscow’s Red Square, known now as Lenin’s Mausoleum, or Lenin’s Tomb. The body has been a public fixture ever since. Now, the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia has called for Lenin’s body...

    You might not be surprised to learn some deep lessons about authentic Catholic social teaching from a conference at the Vatican. Except if that person you were learning them from was then the head of Breitbart.com, and is now Donald Trump’s chief strategist. That’s right, Steve Bannon—who is now the victim of an appalling character smear by leftists and NeverTrump globalists in the GOP–gave one of the most profound and enlightening talks in recent Vatican history in 2014. See The Stream for highlights. I myself am not surprised. Years before Bannon took over Breitbart.com, I met him at the Ritz...
  • Why Hillary Wants World War III

    World War III “A Progressive War” Why Hillary wants World War III is answered best in V.I. Lenin’s own words! Lenin, with principles and tactics precisely enunciated, made particularly urgent the publication of a pamphlet that sums up Social Democratic tactics in relation to war. The pamphlet Socialism and War by Lenin was written in August 1915. Hitler was aware the German edition of the pamphlet was secretly smuggled into Germany – into Berlin, Leipzig, Bremen and other cities, where it was secretly distributed by supporters of the Zimmerwald and by the Karl Liebknecht group. In the autumn of 2016,...

    The New Criterion ^ | September 2016 | Gary Saul Morson
    Ninety-nine years ago, Tsar Nicholas II abdicated, and, after a few months of weak parliamentary rule, the Bolsheviks seized power. We call that seizure the Russian (or October) Revolution, but it might better be designated the Bolshevik coup d’état. A party of 10,000 people gained control of an empire occupying one-sixth of the earth’s land area. From the start, they made up for their small numbers with outsized violence. If at first their executions of liberals, socialists, workers who showed independence, and peasants from whom grain was seized at gunpoint seemed like a short-term necessity, it soon became evident that...

    In The State and Revolution, V. I. Lenin elaborates on Marx's demonic ravings about a violent revolution to create a state of "armed workers" that will itself "begin to wither away." Madness. Beginning with the first Bolshevik regime in the Soviet Union under Lenin, all such revolutions have only created monstrous dictatorships, which, far from withering away, have slaughtered millions and millions of their own and other peoples all over Planet Earth. Did five more die in Dallas last night? Lenin saw police as the front line of the enemy -- the enemy, of course, being existing society, which had...

    More and more Americans are opting out of Earth Day in favor of a holiday that offers a chance to fight back against Marxism and political correctness. The holiday, which is called “Holly Maddux Day,” is named after the young woman murdered by Ira Einhorn, a 1960s antiwar activist. Einhorn, who was a friend of Jerry Rubin and Abby Hoffman, is regarded by many as the founder of Earth Day. Einhorn emceed the first Earth Day celebration in Philadelphia in April 1970, at which Sen. Edmund Muskie gave the highlight address. Einhorn, an advocate of free love and drug use,...

    Today marks the 47th Earth Day. At this year’s high-level celebration at the United Nations headquarters in New York, the Paris Climate Agreement will officially be signed. Thirty days after its signing by at least 55 countries that represent 55 percent of global gas emissions, the agreement will take effect—committing countries to establishing individual targets for emission reductions with the expectation that they will be reviewed and updated every five years. While news reports of Earth Day 2016 will likely depict dancing in the streets, those who can look past the headlines will see a dire picture—one in which more...

    NEW YORK — Before the United Nations can save the planet, it needs to clean up its own house. And as scandal after scandal has unfolded over the past decade, from Oil for Food to procurement fraud to peacekeeper rape, the size of that job has become stunningly clear. But any understanding of the real efforts that job entails should begin with a look at the long and murky career of Maurice Strong, the man who may have had the most to do with what the U.N. has become today, and still sparks controversy even after he claims to have...

    The force has awakened in Ukraine. A recent law banning Communist symbols in the country meant that a Soviet-era statue of Vladimir Lenin in Odessa needed to come down. Instead, the city opted to transform it into a monument to one of pop culture's greatest villains: Darth Vader.

    Language is the first casualty of wars over foreign policy. To paraphrase Thucydides, during ideological conflict, words have to change their ordinary meaning and to take that which is now given them. One word that has been central to our foreign policy for over a century is “colonialism.” Rather than describing a historical phenomenon––with all the complexity, mixture of good and evil, and conflicting motives found on every page of history––“colonialism” is now an ideological artifact that functions as a crude epithet. As a result, our foreign policy decisions are deformed by self-loathing and guilt eagerly exploited by our adversaries....

    Despite a firestorm of criticism, North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Randy Voller Wednesday left open the possibility of hiring civil rights leader Ben Chavis to run the party. Voller canceled a morning news conference at which he was expected to name Chavis as party executive director. Instead, the party has an interim director, days after Voller fired Robert Dempsey from the post. The decision came after what was described as a contentious conference call Tuesday night with more than 100 party leaders. Many Democrats objected to Chavis, an Oxford native who has been a high-profile civil rights figure. He was...

    Russian scientists have developed experimental embalming methods to maintain the look, feel and flexibility of the Soviet Union's founderÂ’s body, which is 145 years old today. For thousands of years humans have used embalming methods to preserve dead bodies. But nothing compares with Russia's 90-year-old experiment to preserve the body of Vladimir Lenin, communist revolutionary and founder of the Soviet Union. Generations of Russian scientists have spent almost a century fine-tuning preservation techniques that have maintained the look, feel and flexibility of Lenin's body. This year Russian officials closed the Lenin Mausoleum in Moscow's Red Square so that scientists could...
