TEN YEARS AFTER THE FALL OF THE BERLIN WALL, A GROUP OF RUSSIAN OFFICERS VISITED THE U.S. THEY TOOK A TOUR OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY…
“The author couldn’t help but notice the rather solemn demeanor of one of the Russian officers…this Russian gestured around him. “All of my life, I have been lied to,” he said…”This thing,” the Russian gestured again to the wonder all around him: the pleasant homes; the constant flow of clean water; the dependable sources of energy; the cars; the free press; the ability of the citizens to gather and speak and write what they wanted; the fact that one did not need to be someone of know someone in order to succeed; the fact that Americans did not fear a knock on the door at night…” —Chris and Ted Stewart

“It is to deny what the history of the world tells us is true, to suppose that men of ambition and talents will not continue to spring up amongst us.

He was a controversial figure, they wanted to throw him out of the Republican party from the beginning. Robert Byrd was a hero in the Democratic party, even though it was well known that he had spent a good deal of his career in the Ku Klux Klan. When Byrd died in 2010, not so long ago, Hillary Clinton said “he’s my mentor.” Bill Clinton and Obama actually went to Byrd’s funeral. Obama didn’t touch the topic of his Klan membership…” —Dinesh D’Souza
