“A Republic, Madam, If You Can Keep It.”
by Olivia Pierson

This was the reply of Benjamin Franklin when he was leaving the Constitutional Convention of 1787, where a woman asked him, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”

What do North Korea, Russia, Iran, Syria – and the Zealots of Multiculturalism all have in common? Communism? No. Religion? No. Totalitarianism? Close. It is hatred of the West.

Unity through Diversity Equals Cultural Death
By Olivia Pierson

Cultural pluralism is as old as the hills – or at least as old as the Babylonian Empire on whose riverbank shores even the captive Jews were tolerated to sit and weep. Multiculturalism, on the other hand, is a 20th Century bastardization of tolerance, which the United Nations invented to socially engineer Western democracies to cope with overwhelming immigration, mostly from Third World slave-pens.

Stability over Insanity in Iraq...Yeah, Right.

Before 2003, when Saddam Hussein tyrannized Iraq with his secret police, torture chambers and death squads, many, if not most in the west, claimed that he was still the best man for the job “because he kept stability in the region”.

I remember this country when it was sane. That was more than 40 years ago. The end really started with John Kennedy. The minute I first heard him, I recognized there was something terribly wrong with that man. He was lying to me without shame or conscience.

Europe is also experiencing this to be the case as it finds its back being increasingly pressed against the wall by Islamic migration which is becoming demographically strong enough to flex its muscle. The result is becoming conquest instead of mere migration.
