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.

We all know that the gun control community has co-opted the phrase ‘common sense.’

What is ‘common sense’ to them, is foolishness to us.

It may be common sense for the gun control folks to want taxpayers to fund the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) anti-firearm research efforts.

But it’s foolish and counterproductive for us to permit the CDC to engage in fake science again, as they did in the past.

One can often hear the plaintive call for more firearms violence research and the funding that supports it. But the history of such research is rife with lies and distortions and it would be foolish to set the gun control crowd loose with our tax dollars, when their past has shown such disregard for the truth.

Our NRA is watching. They have a long institutional memory and they keep us alert.

ATTENTION: Medical Research On “Gun Violence” Is Contaminated With Propaganda, by Dave Hardy, Page 30, America’s 1st Freedom, December 2016.

We shouldn’t let honesty rot in the trenches of debate, especially when some of that debate depends on today’s science that proves our Founders instincts to be correct. Yet, that’s exactly...

Donald Trump spoke with Taiwan’s President Tsai-Ing-wen (photo, below) on December 3, triggering a thunderstorm of media clatter and protestations. Some mainstream media analysts were “aghast” at the incident. But the fact is Trump was correct to take the call from the diminutive but steely, determined, and democratically elected Taiwanese president. The Taiwanese have lived under the threat of invasion and even nuclear attack from the communist Chinese for decades.

Mellifluous-voiced David Wright, a talking head on ABC News crowed, “it is difficult to tell if Trump’s conversation was a rookie mistake or a deliberate provocation”; while ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd further expounded stating that either way Trump’s posture was “problematic.” The media dog and pony show on Sunday morning reminded me of the egregiously liberal bias I witnessed by ABC News commentators during election night coverage.

Most of the historic antecedents for the One China policy that the United States has observed for nearly 40 years have been ascribed to Republican President Richard Nixon. And while it is true that it was Nixon who opened up China, it was Democrat Jimmy Carter...
