    Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) compared Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky’s address to Congress to when former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Winston Churchill’s 1941 address asked the United States to go to war with Europe. Pelosi said in her letter to lawmakers that she has “great pride and solemnity” to welcome Zelensky on Wednesday to Congress, where he will address both chambers in a Joint Meeting of Congress. The outgoing speaker, leaving a “personal note,” compared Zelensky’s congressional visit to Churchill’s historic wartime address in the Senate Chamber when he spoke before an informal meeting of Congress the...
  • Just one in five of Generation Woke admire Churchill, poll reveals... Twenty years after he was voted the greatest Briton of all time

    He has been voted the greatest Briton of all time – a heroic wartime leader who took on Hitler against the odds. But Winston Churchill, it seems, is no longer so universally admired. Just one in five 18-to-24-year-olds say they have a positive view of the former Prime Minister, compared with 58 per cent of over-65s, a poll has revealed. Educational experts say the findings are down to changes to the school curriculum, which have led to Britain’s past being portrayed in increasingly negative ways. The survey, commissioned by the think tank Policy Exchange, revealed views of history depended not...

    Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that his colleague on the January 6 House Select Committee, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), has acted with courage, comparing her to Winston Churchill. Kinzinger said, “I’ll say about Liz, you know people always in their life dream about this opportunity to kind of stand up alone in a crowd and do the right thing, and only a few people actually get that chance. What I’ve noticed is that even fewer that get that chance have the courage to do it. It’s one thing to read something in a history book...

    Tony Bobulinski, one of Hunter Biden’s former business associates, is worried that former elite FBI agent Timothy Thibault may have helped hide information he provided the bureau about his relationship with the Biden family, directly familiar sources told The Washington Free Beacon. Except that wasn’t supposed to happen: “Someone please remind Democrats that according to the precedent established during Alexander Vindman, nobody gets to question the veracity, the motives and the integrity of great Patriot and naval veteran Tony Bobulinski while giving testimony to the Senate tomorrow. Check and mate.” Bobulinski was brave enough to give his story to the...
  • Like Churchill in the ‘50s, Biden is just too old to lead his nation (Like Churchill???)

    NY Post ^ | 7/29/2022 | John Podhoretz
    “I have been humiliated by my own decay.” Thus spoke Winston Churchill in 1953 during his second stint as Britain’s prime minister. Churchill, perhaps the greatest democratic figure of the 20th century, had been sworn in 18 months earlier — just a few weeks shy of his 77th birthday. Joe Biden was sworn in as president two months after his 78th birthday. The humiliation for Churchill came from an argument he lost with the American secretary of state, John Foster Dulles, who was shockingly dismissive of his concerns. Churchill’s “decay” was a serious concern. Joe Biden is 79 now —...
  • George W. Bush calls Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky the ‘Winston Churchill of our time’

    Former President George W. Bush called Ukraine leader Volodymyr Zelensky “the Winston Churchill of our time” after the two spoke in a videoconference Thursday morning. Bush posted two images of the meeting on Instagram tagged with a location of the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Texas, showing the 43rd president smiling while seated at a conference table. The chat came as Ukraine remains under siege by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invading forces. “I was honored to spend a few minutes talking with President Zelenskyy – the Winston Churchill of our time – this morning,” Bush said in the post....

    What would Winston Churchill do about the Russia/Ukraine war? This is by no means an original perspective, but, in the melee of argument back and forth (Neocons! Putinbots!, etc.) I'd like to break it down, perhaps a little more thoughtfully. Despite my FR name, I am not a neocon. I have always been conservative and held my own counsel about whether it was in the best interests of the United States to engage in combat abroad. That should be the touchstone for everyone claiming to be an American Conservative. Just because I refer to Churchill does not mean that intervention...

    Tuesday on FNC’s “Jesse Watters Primetime,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) argued the Biden administration should have taken a more hawkish approach to deal with Russia in the lead up to its invasion of Ukraine. Graham told host Jesse Watters he was underwhelmed by President Joe Biden, who he said made former U.K. Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who took a dovish approach in dealing with Adolf Hitler’s advance on Europe, look like his successor, former U.K. Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who led the British along with Allies to victory in World War II.

    Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky quoted William Shakespeare and Winston Churchill in an emotional address to both houses of the United Kingdom Parliament which ultimately appealed to British “greatness” to make sure “Ukrainian skies are safe” and to categorise Russia as a “terrorist state”. The Houses of Commons and Lords received an extraordinary address by the Ukrainian President on Tuesday afternoon, a short speech that expressed the Ukrainian experience of the renewed Russian invasion day-by-day for the past fortnight, and which also appealed to the United Kingdom to take further action.

    Dame Athene Donald, the Master of Churchill College Cambridge, is probably breathing a little easier today. Last week, a commission she appointed in reaction to the George Floyd killing was disbanded, or disbanded itself, depending upon whom one believes. That commission had arranged a panel at Churchill College about the racism of Winston Churchill. The panel featured several rants on this theme that are entirely typical of our day. The charges were virtually undisputed by any of the panelists. This caused a reaction from Churchill’s descendants and from some historians, notably Churchill biographer Andrew Roberts, who knows the real story....

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has compared himself and President Joe Biden to wartime leaders Sir Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Speaking shortly after the 77th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, the commemoration of which was once again heavily disrupted by coronavirus restrictions, Prime Minister Johnson suggested that his meeting with the U.S. Democrat at the G7 summit in Cornwall is not unlike Churchill and Roosevelt meeting in 1941 to agree the Atlantic Charter.

    The Nile is the river in question. Without it, no war. “It is the cause of the war,” Churchill writes. “It is the means by which we fight, the end at which we aim.” On the Nile, the British could run their formidable gunboats into their enemy’s territory, upriver to its stronghold at Khartoum, itself located at the geostrategic chokepoint where the Blue and White Niles meet: “the great spout through which the merchandise collected from a wide area streams northwards to the Mediterranean Sea.” Just as the Suez Canal, completed in 1869, connected Europe to Asian ports beyond the...

    Actress Angelina Jolie has sold a Moroccan landscape painting by British premier Winston Churchill for more than £8million, smashing the previous record for one of the World War Two leader's artworks. The painting, which is called 'Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque', sold at London auction house Christie's for a staggering £8.3million. It was completed after the 1943 Casablanca Conference, where Churchill and Franklin D Roosevelt planned the defeat of Nazi Germany - and was later gifted to the US President as a memento of their trip to Marrakech.

    The GOP today is the party of Donald Trump, but some Republicans just don’t know it yet. The failed GOP, the one that nominated John McCain and Mitt Romney for the Presidency, is dead. Good riddance to it. The GOP survives this day only because Donald Trump rescued it in 2016. Some have suggested that if Joe Biden is sworn in that Donald Trump should start his own party. Absolutely not! Why go through the process building an entirely new party when instead he can clear out all the splinters of driftwood from the party of Abraham Lincoln? There are,...

    A wartime spy described as Winston Churchill's favourite has finally been remembered with a blue plaque. Christine Granville, who was born Krystyna Skarbek in Warsaw, joined British intelligence in 1939 and is said to have inspired Ian Fleming's spy character Vesper Lynd. She struggled after the war and was given cheap lodgings at a London hotel run by the Polish Relief Society. It was her home until she was murdered by a stalker in 1952, aged 44. The English Heritage Blue Plaque has been unveiled at the former Shelbourne Hotel (now 1 Lexham Gardens), in Kensington, and is inscribed with...

    Winston Churchill became Prime Minister of Britain on May 10, 1940. World War II would rage another year and a half before the entrance of Unite States. The situation in Europe was desperate, as two massive Nazi armies were driving back British, French, Dutch, Polish and Belgian troops to the English Channel, bottling them up in the port of Dunkirk. The Belgian army surrendered. If the British forces were destroyed, Britain would be forced to negotiate a surrender. For reasons still debated, Hitler approved an order on May 24 to halt for three days the advance of 800,000 Nazi troop,...

    A year before the British surrender at Yorktown, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail: “I must study Politicks and War that my sons may have liberty to study Mathematicks and Philosophy.” It’s a simple point: times defined by the former are not times defined by the latter. C. Bradley Thompson understandably desires that Americans “rediscover the philosophy of Americanism,” the philosophy—at least as he understands it—of the American Founding. What Thompson misunderstands, though, is that ours are once again times of war and politics; no mere philosophy can save us now. Americans of the founders’ age could realize the...
