    While You Slept II: Russia Dominates the Eastern Mediterranean

    While You Slept by John T. Flynn is a classic analysis from the “Who lost China?” debate of the Cold War.  Flynn showed how “softness on Communism” in the Roosevelt-Truman State Department and how propaganda in the U.S. media prepared the way for Mao-Tse-Tung’s murderous Communist dictatorship.

    The Crusades: Today’s Fictions vs. Yesterday’s Facts

    Homosexuality, Transvestism, Macy’s, McDonald’s, and Thanksgiving!

    When you wanted to watch Thanksgiving Day parades in the good ol’ days, networks used to have cameras which showed the parade.  You would have to endure commentary full of terrible jokes from Level Z celebrities and news reporters who had drawn the short straw, but you could always turn down the sound.

    Ah, Wilderness!  Ah, Compassionate Conservatism!  The former brings you fresh air, the latter makes you gag!

    BIG BRObama Forbids “Snooping” In Radicalized Mosques

    Basically this diary wants to call your attention to an excellent, but as yet not well known editorial, in the June 12, 2013 Investor’s Business Daily.

    Leftists, Socialists, Communists: Lend Me Your Liberals!

    I remember the time when books in America could be banned for “offensive content,” when “banned in Boston” Yes!  BOSTON!) was a badge of honor for authors pushing for realism in their novels (realism = sex scenes or filthy language) or for the freedom to discuss potentially offensive topics in non-fiction.
