How Character and Statecraft Shaped the Post-World War Order

Seventy-two years after the end of World War II, Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s leadership remains a shining example of statecraft for leaders in our own day. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month It is this great British figure that historian and public intellectual Lewis E. Lehrman writes about in his latest book, “Churchill, Roosevelt & Company: Studies in Character and Statecraft.” The book provides Lehrman’s readers with the fruit of a lifetime of deep scholarship. Many assume that American entry into World War II was inevitable. But in fact the U.S. only declared war on the Axis powers after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, which was well into the war. American entry into World War II was by no means a given. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); In his book, Lehrman reveals … Read entire article »

Just $2 a month In Poland, Trump was greeted by cheering crowds as he stood in the sunshine in Krasinski Square. This is where Pope John Paul II made an earthshaking address in 1979 as the Cold War entered its final phase.

An Air Force veteran in Utah uses his talent and passion to make, display, and sell images of the one thing he believes can help unite Americans: the nation’s flag. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Creating the flag out of steel is his way of bringing people together, Josh Vandenbrink says in an interview with The Daily Signal, and of being a part of the dialogue in politics without getting directly involved. “It’s a way to connect with the community,” Vandenbrink says, on “common ground [because] we can all love the flag.” (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Vandenbrink served in Air Force special operations as a pararescueman, deploying 21 times over 14 years to the Middle East and Africa.

This New Hampshire County Switched From Obama to Trump. How the Opioid Crisis May Have Influenced That.

COLEBROOK, N.H.—His left foot in a walking boot after surgery, Rick Samson, an independent-minded county commissioner in the northernmost part of New Hampshire, is behind the wheel of his pickup truck, describing how this region—“North Country” to locals—is used to going it alone. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month “I run as a Republican, however I consider myself neither a Republican or Democrat, or conservative, or liberal—I am an American and that’s where it starts,” Samson, 70, says in a New England accent that reveals exactly where he’s from.

Why Conservatives Still Attack Trump

When people you know well, admire, and who share your values do something you strongly oppose, you have two options: 1) Cease admiring them, or 2) try to understand them and change their minds. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month In the case of my conservative friends who still snipe (or worse) at President Donald Trump, I have rejected option one. The reason—beside the fact that I simply like many of them—is what I refer to as “moral bank accounts.” Every time we do good, we make a deposit into our moral bank account. And every time we do something bad, we make a withdrawal.

Valerie Jarrett Has Moved Into Obama’s Anti-Trump Command Center To Aid In The Effort To Sabotage The President
