Where it’s worth remembering the 100 million that have died from Communism.

Meanwhile, Venezuelans’ socialist experiment has them eating their trash and zoo animals as they search for anything to eat.

Also, the New York Times ran a headline just a few days ago:

Happy Birthday Karl Marx, You Were Right!

No, no he was not. The entire basis of his theories is that someone is being exploited in any given exchange in the market, especially with respect to labor — and that is flat-out wrong. Any given trade in a free market is win-win, or both sides would not make it. Not only that, but pretty much every attempt to force a market outcome via political action – especially the types of political action his followers have espoused – has had disastrous consequences and shown just how much they fail to understand basic economics.

Other than making the left feel good about doing nothing.

And it also illustrated that they didn’t care about all of the boys Boko Haram had also been kidnapping all along.

A personal account of one survivor worth reading.

Interesting. I didn’t realize the native American politics behind it all.

Yet another Democrat who was a KKK member. The KKK was always the terrorist arm of the Democrats, formed after their side lost to Republicans such as Lincoln in the civil war, and continuing up through their celebrated longest serving Senators.

Lee Harvey Oswald was trained by the CIA to help infiltrate the Soviet Union.

I suspect he considered the CIA useful idiots enabling his socialist leanings.

Very interesting.

Of course, Monty Python had their own take.

An academic essay that found that colonialism wasn’t 100% bad is facing pressure and opposition from professors who can’t allow it to disrupt their narrative. Pro-science indeed.

What the left really doesn’t want to remember about colonialism is that the moral impetus for the western nations to launch their colonialism agendas were the horrific excesses of slavery and tribal warfare that so much of the rest of the world had.

He basically laid the groundwork for the unceasing growth of the Federal government and it’s continuous grasp of power.

It’s a bit hard to do, but double most of the other atrocities you can think of throughout history and you start getting close.

Talk about trying to bury history. The Molotov-Von Ribbontrop pact puts a fair amount of the blame on WWII on the Russians…and they also are the ones who taught the Nazis how to construct concentration camps.

Remembering Tiananmen Square

The protests were 28 years ago yesterday.

Wow.

Interesting history.

Trump As Claudius

Claudius was a Roman Emperor who was despised by the elites of the time for his bumbling mannerisms but managed to bring about significant financial reform despite all their efforts. Sound familiar?

By the numbers.

A white woman whom he broke up with because he thought that being married to someone white would ruin his political career.

And the media chose not to look into this during his career. Funny, that.

Here are a few good reasons.
