When writing The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx thought he was providing a road to utopia, but everywhere his ideas were tried, they resulted in catastrophe and mass murder. In this video, Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, illuminates the life of the mild-mannered 19th Century German whose ideas led to the rise of some of the most brutal dictators in world history
Ever since President Trump won the election the left has been spreading the dopey fantasy that America is now living in The Handmaid’s Tale. A world where regiments of red clad women live at the whim of a totalitarian state.
The recent film, a turgid piece of left wing propaganda (based on a clunky novel by the untalented Canadian left wing nut case Margaret Atwood) has been celebrated as a cautionary tale about the evils of Trump and Melania and Pence and Ivanka, and… whatever.
And now we have the spectacle of the leftwing media being super-charmed by an actual brigade of red clad women who move and speak and sing in robotic synch — like a bunch of, um, handmaidens.
I’m speaking of of the rigor mortis smiling North Korean Olympic cheerleaders who have caused the western media to go absolutely gaga.
We seem to be preoccupied with a bunch of dimwit football players who hate America and insist on displaying contempt for the American flag.
As Syria and Iraq continue to spiral into Hobbesian tribal conflict we can all be grateful that Israel denied these two cruel states nuclear weapons.
Operation Babylon, was a surprise Israeli air strike carried out on June 7, 1981, which destroyed an Iraqi nuclear reactor under construction 10.5 miles southeast of Baghdad. What’s less well known is that the Iranians had tried, unsuccessfully, to put the Iraq nuclear facility out of commission a year earlier. The Iranians caused some minor damage which was quickly repaired by French technicians. Vive la France!
Below is Michael Oren’s April 15 op-ed from the Wall Street Journal, in which Ambassador Oren argues that the Trump administration must act decisively now to address a threat to the United States greater than that of Syria and North Korea combined: Iran.
Oren explains that the United States has signed three agreements to keep non-conventional weapons out of the hands of rogue regimes. Two of those regimes, Syria and North Korea, have violated those agreements and are now being challenged by President Trump. The third regime—the most dangerous, Iran—doesn’t even need to its agreement in order to produce nuclear weapons. To become a nuclear power, Iran only has to honor it.
As signed, the Iran nuclear deal assures that Iran will be a nuclear armed power by the late 2020s. Now is the time, Oren argues, that President Trump must act to address the appalling flaws in the deal and to save the middle East, America and the world from a nuclear armed Jihadist Iran.
