  • The WORST Political Upheaval EVER

    Is it really the worst political environment ever in the history of the United States -- or even the worst "in the modern era" (let's define that as "1900+")? Not even close. On January 2nd, 1920, thousands of Americans -- by some measures ten thousand Americans -- were detained and many arrested in the so-called "Palmer Raids" nationwide. Woodrow Wilson's AG orchestrated those raids against purported communists and anarchists, along with anyone they believed supported either. My writing here on these pages over the last 15 years would have certainly landed me on that list -- and behind bars. This...

    Amateurs Unravel Russia’s Last Royal Mystery Agence France PresseCzar Nicholas II of Russia, his wife, Alexandra, wearing crown, and their children in 1914, four years before they were killed. By CLIFFORD J. LEVY Published: November 25, 2007 YEKATERINBURG, Russia — On the outskirts of this burly industrial center, off a road like any other, on a nowhere scrap of land — here unfolded the final act of one of the last century’s most momentous events. Excavations were done near Yekaterinburg in September. An archaeologist oversaw the search. A short way through a clearing, toward a cluster of birch trees, the...

    Travesti parties, Vladimir Lenin advocating sexual freedom, nudist anarchists aboard trams, a nude beach near the cathedral of Christ the Savior… such was Russian life at the beginning of the Soviet state. What could possibly go wrong?“Stark naked people wearing armbands reading “Down With Shame!” have recently appeared in Moscow. A group was seen boarding a tram. The tram stopped, the public was outraged,” Mikhail Bulgakov, the famous Russian writer, wrote in his diary in 1924. Just 15 years prior to that, women could not think of going out in a knee-long dress. But did these changes happen overnight?Pre-revolutionary Russian...
  • Putin’s Holy Man, the Russian Orthodox Patriarch, Pushed for the ‘Eradication’ of Ukraine

    Beneath the gold onion domes of the Danilov Monastery a few miles south of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin’s chief shaman explains why Russia is hell-bent on destroying Ukraine. “If we see [Ukraine] as a threat, we have the right to use force to ensure the threat is eradicated,” Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill recently preached to his church’s 90 million faithful followers. “We have entered into a conflict which has not only physical but also metaphysical significance. We are talking about human salvation, something much more important than politics.” The wartime coalition between Putin and his patriarch is called symphonia, an...

    I am a citizen of Russia, I consider Russia my motherland and my home. A home where, many years ago, armed people broke in and began to loot, murder, rape, destroy churches, eliminate the faith of a people in the beginnings of spiritual freedom, and now these criminals, in essence, still remain in power. I don’t like to offend people and my intention is not to insult anyone. This includes those in power, because they most likely, as the expression goes, “know not what they do.” But, seeing the public positions Russia takes in regard to many important global political...

    Adoration of “G-men,” once celebrated in the nonpartisan war on Al Capone and organized crime and now leading the effort to round up Jan. 6 Capitol riot suspects and Trump supporters, is apparently waning. In the latest sign of how today’s politics is dividing support for major Washington institutions, the latest Rasmussen Reports survey shows more people than not view the FBI as the punishing political arm of President Joe Biden. Picking up on a comment from former Trump adviser Roger Stone, long caught in the wandering FBI Russia probe, the pollster found that likely voters, by a 46%-38% margin,...

  • Putin: Woke Culture in U.S. is Just Like Bolsheviks, 'Dogmatism Bordering on Absurdity'

    Russian President Vladimir Putin, a former lieutenant colonel in the KGB, strongly criticized the "woke," social justice warriors in the United States and Europe, arguing that they behave just like the Bolshevik Communists did in the former Soviet Union. They are ruled by a "dogmatism bordering on absurdity," he asserted, noting that "cancel culture" is nothing more than "reverse discrimination," and teaching children that sexuality is flexible is potentially "a crime against humanity." In his Oct. 22 speech in Sochi, Russia, before members of the Valdai Discussion Club, Putin addressed some of the major issues affecting the entire world, such...

    Is Merrick Garland creating an East German Stasi-like FBI? Why is the DOJ getting involved in school board meetings and going after Moms as if they’re domestic terrorists? They’re spying and gathering intelligence on patriotic parents and unleashing the full force of the government to attack the constitutional rights of citizens throughout this country. This is an American Marxist overreach.

    The FBI office in Denver said Sunday there is no reason to believe the Maven Hotel incident was connected to terrorism or a threat directed at the All-Star Game. Although police sources did confirm to FOX31 they found 16 long guns, body armor and more than 1,000 rounds of ammo at the scene, FBI Denver tweeted that they are not aware of any threat to the All-Star Game events, venues, players or the community at this time. “As is the case w/major special events, the FBI works closely with our law enforcement partners in preparation for & in support of...

    Predictably, the time for America to unify is immediately after the Democrats feel assured that a Democrat will be in the White House on January 20, 2021. Also predictably, they have entirely forgotten about the past four years. They are now claiming, as if none of us have had access to the media outlets that so faithfully stump for them, that they “accepted” Trump’s presidency, and that thus it is downright unAmerican for suspicious conservatives to launch a #NotMyPresident social media campaign. Wait, that was them. Last time. Awkward. Moving on. If Republicans hold onto the Senate after the two...
  • History Repeats Itself: Lenin’s Actions to Steal the 1917 Election in Russia Are Eerily Similar to the Democrats Steal Today

    Did the Democrats copy the Lenin playbook in this year’s election? A reminder…the first “free election” in Russia was held in 1917. Lenin promised a “free” election where all votes would be equal and each citizen would be heard. The election was scheduled and a number of political parties provided the voters a choice. The Russian Social-Democratic Labor Party (Lenin’s Bolsheviks) campaigned with appeals to win the majority’s vote with the promise of “Peace, Land and Bread.” The energy of the Bolsheviks and the promises of Lenin were insufficient to win the election (they only garnered 23%) of the vote....

    BERLIN — Berlin police said Wednesday they are investigating an attack on a conference room being set up for the far-right Alternative for Germany party, which blamed it on far-left “antifa” protesters. The attack came Tuesday afternoon after two women who had made an appointment to tour the facility in the eastern neighborhood of Kaulsdorf were let inside, police said. They then opened the doors to allow 10 to 15 masked people to storm inside, where they threw chairs and scattered confetti around the conference room being prepared for a meeting of AfD’s Berlin branch. They fled as police arrived,...

    The mostly behind-the-scenes attempt between Election Day and Inauguration Day to prevent Donald Trump from taking office the first time will go public in 2020. As I reported last week, a cabal of Democrats and NeverTrump Republicans are plotting a post-election civil war of sorts to make sure Joe Biden assumes the presidency even if Donald Trump legitimately wins. “It’s insurrection,” President Trump said on Fox News last week when asked about the widely-circulated plan. “We’ll put them down very quickly if they do that.” SNIP But this is more than the far-fetched hallucinations of political outcasts. The mayhem they’ve...

    ...Let’s stop and think about what is really being said about Trump’s culpability in the riots and violence. The looters, vandals, arsonists, thugs, and, in some cases, murderers, are not responsible for their actions because they’re reacting to Trump’s “rhetoric,” his “provocations,” and his tweets. This excuse—Trump made me mad so I can be violent—should be dismissed as ridiculous. It reminds us of what an abusive husband says to justify beating his wife. If only Trump would apologize and learn to adopt leftist policies, then there could be peace. But he insists upon charting an offensive and non-conforming political agenda....

    The death of George Floyd triggered a wave of protests and violent mayhem across the country as demonstrators demanded justice and a reckoning against racial injustice and police brutality. In Portland, Oregon’s largest city, those demonstrations have raged for six weeks straight, and local businesses have reported $23 million in losses due to looting and rioting that have gripped its downtown area since the end of May. Demonstrators have been seen lighting mattresses on fire and setting off fireworks in the streets. Just this weekend, a federal officer protecting a closed courthouse was struck in the head and shoulder with...
