Who won, who lost, World War II?

By Pat Buchanan:

Sunday, the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland, Vice President Mike Pence spoke in Warsaw’s Pilsudski Square of “five decades of untold suffering and death that followed” the invasion. Five decades!

What Pence was saying was that, for Poland, World War II did not end in victory but defeat and occupation by an evil empire ruled by one of the greatest mass murderers of the 20th century, Josef Stalin.

The “Liberation of Europe,” the 75th anniversary of which we celebrated at Omaha Beach on June 6, was a liberation that extended only to the Elbe River in the heart of Germany.

Deplorables takes to Branson streets

My wife and I enjoyed a few days relaxing in Branson, Missouri over the Labor Day weekend. Besides hearing some good country and gospel music, eating great food, visiting with others in Branson from all over the country, I was impressed with several older men demonstrating on several street corners along historic Route 76.

The older men were carrying signs like “Hillary, enemy of the people”, “Lock Her Up”, and so on. As motorists along Route 76 would pass these men, most tooted their car horns and waved.

I guess these men and all those motorists came from the “basket of deplorables” Hillary talked about in a speech during the last presidential campaign.

Pushing back against bullies, bigots

By Todd Starnes:

For eight years the Military Religious Freedom Foundation and the Obama administration waged a relentless war on religious liberty within the ranks of the Armed Forces.

As I document in my forthcoming book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,”  nativity scenes were removed from military bases, Airmen were punished because of their religious beliefs and VA hospitals imposed draconian rules that even forbade school children from distributing Christmas cards that included the words “Merry Christmas.”

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation’s most recent attack came in May when they filed a federal lawsuit demanding that a World War II veteran’s family Bible be removed from a Missing Man Table at the VA Medical Center in Manchester, New Hampshire.

So true: “It’s the media, stupid!”

Paul Curry:

Are we ever not in divided times? That’s the nature of democracy. Disagreement is the nature of any two-party or multi-party system. Yet, if one were to listen to the media, any media, one would naturally come to believe that we are living in the most apocalyptic, divided era since the American Civil War.

Yet reality simply does not back that up. Clear, statistical evidence and political trends indicate that, for at least the last thirty years, the U.S. has been quite stable. But that is not the narrative we are force fed. Ever since Donald Trump’s famous escalator ride, right through his election to the Presidency, and onto today, we are told that we are living in tremendously divided times.

And the culprit, the cause of all of this division? Of course, Donald Trump. But we are not that divided, and the degree to which we are is not President Trump’s fault. It’s the media, stupid.

Guns and God day slated for Sept. 14

Article Image Alt Text

The broad coalition of gun rights advocates led by Constitutional Rights PAC, which hosted the first Gun Appreciation Day in 2013, has returned with a new event to be held Saturday, September 14th to send a message about protecting the rights of gun owners and restoring God-fearing values to American culture.

As far as we can determine, no gathering is planned in LaSalle Parish for this special day, but each of can pause during the day and say a prayer of appreciation for living in a country where we are free to own guns and worship God.

Supporters – whether they are a Christian, a Jew or simply a person of no organized religion who believes, as many American Founding Fathers did, in a power transcendent of human knowledge and ingenuity – find common cause in America’s heritage, culture and the U.S. Constitution based on natural law and the natural rights flowing from it.

Kurt Schlichter: Ignorant liberals: Visit America

It’s always good to occasionally leave deep blue west Los Angeles and visit the United States. When your congressjerk is Ted Lieu, you get a skewed perspective on the country as well as suffer continuous embarrassment. My recent travels through parts of the country that aren’t populated and controlled almost exclusively by liberal nimrods gave me some hope for the future. America as a whole does not appear eager to become Scat Francisco. The problem is the people who want to transform our entire country into a socialist open sewer know nothing of this country outside their reeking pinko enclaves.

It’s a very different country when you get between I-5 and I-95. People are generally nice. They smile and attempt to assist you, even when you display the insanity inherent in your blue homeland. If you go to a restaurant and ask if they have a vegan, gluten-free keto alternative, they try to help you and bring you a glass of water.

‘Share the Wealth’ plan swept nation

Huey P. Long is dead, but the legend of the Kingfish will never die. These were the words written back in the 1960’s, some 30 years after the death of Long.

It was September 10, 1935, that perhaps the most famous of Louisiana’s political figures died. But like the death of President John F. Kennedy, most the population at the time could tell you what they were doing when they heard the news.

They even referred to him as “our Governor”, although he was a U.S. Senator at his death.

Should you happen to have a copy of Huey’s speech, by then U.S. Senator Long, which he delivered over radio on which he outlined his “Share the Wealth”, one could easily believe that he hoped to ascend to the presidency.

The lost art of the l-2-3 holers

For more than 150 years, the red clay hills of North Central Louisiana have been known as the “Land of the Three P’s” – Politics, Pine Trees, and Pore Folks. So wrote Eck C. Bozeman back in the early 1970’s.

Bozeman was known as “Mr. Tourism” from Winnfield and wrote columns for several newspapers in the central Louisiana area, including this one.
