Stalin's Mysteriious DeathStalin's Mysterious Death

In a historic medical article published in Surgical Neurology International, Dr. Faria cites compelling evidence that the Soviet dictator was likely poisoned under the direction of his right hand henchman, Lavrenti Beria, with the very probable connivance of Nikita Khrushchev, who eventually succeeded Stalin and went on to dismantle Stalin's Cult of Personality and expose the "errors" of the former regime.

The liberal media continue their hostile criticism of everything President Trump says and does. The latest brouhaha has been raised with the fake media outrage against Trump for his critical remarks of U.S. District Judge James Robart, the federal judge in Seattle who halted the enforcement of the executive order banning immigration from seven countries with terrorist ties. The judge’s freeze was implemented allegedly because of the violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Trump had picked these seven predominantly Muslim countries for his travel ban because they had been previously identified by the Obama administration as countries that could endanger the security of the United States. Be that as it may, the Ninth Circuit Court has today ruled against Trump. One wonders what would have happened if Trump had included pariah, atheist, communist North Korea in the ban?

The fact is we may have to wait for the Supreme Court to decide the issue, so I will not discuss constitutionality further. What seems to be lost in all this, though, is that Trump, as President of the United States, has the duty to protect the U.S. from all...

It has been said that truth is the first causality of war and we have been at war with the collectivist elements for the past two hundred years. One among many demands by the delusional left is that we should have open borders and that protected borders and using a rational and legal method of choosing who can enter our country and become a citizen is un-American, heartless and evil. With fake tears in his eyes and in a trembling voice Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) tried to convince the nation that protecting our borders is indeed un-American. The conscripted mind of the leftist followers all repeat this mantra unexamined, as if it is were an obvious reasoned idea.

To want to protect our borders from being invaded by hordes of other nations’ misfits, criminals, violent gangs and drug dealers as well as trained terrorist armies bent on our destruction, is considered mean spirited, heartless, cruel and — well, fascist by the deviant left. Now, to those of us who have actually read history, we know that using the term fascist to categorize one's enemy was engineered by Stalin to describe the members of the regime of his previous partner in world revolution, Hitler. The...
