Long Live the Cause of Freedom – Churchill – 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day May 8, 2020

Tired, confident, and jubilant, Prime Minister Winston Churchill sat at his place in the cabinet room at Number 10 Downing street. Steadying himself, Winston announced to the British people and the Empire that the war in Europe was over. The Germans unconditionally surrendered. May 8th would be VE day – Victory in Europe! After a short period of celebration all military operations would refocus to the pacific and the eventual defeat of the Empire of Japan.

Adolf Hitler, sick with watching his Third Reich crushed, and with the Soviet Union bearing down on Berlin, killed himself a few days before on April 30th.  Der Fuhrer, the man who had sights on populating the world with his master race, took the easy way out.

This moment in time, this grand moment in the history of the victory for freedom was an accumulation of the greatest generation who heard the call and traveled halfway around the world for the sake of freedom and liberty. It was the Courage of the British people, rallied by Churchill, across their empire and the might of the Americans who defended freedom against a madman the likes that had not been seen for centuries.

Let’s also not forget the thousands of resistance fighters across Europe who risked their lives and the lives of their families to live free again.

According to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, listed are the death toll of the major combatants:

Military                              Civilians

Germany            5,500,000                           2,000,000

Italy                   301,000                              460,000

Japan                 2,000,000                           700,000


United States     420,000                                12,000

Great Britain      385,000                              67,000

France                220,000                              390,000

Soviet Union     9,000,000                           7,000,000


Think about it – In total, all Allied and Axis forces combined with Civilians – 70,000,000 people lost their lives in World War II.

We must not forget the murder of 6 million of our Jewish brothers and sisters at the hands of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of the Nazi rule.

Churchill was the lion of the 20th Century. Many said that his greatest contribution to the War was that he did not lose it. He hung on until help arrived. Churchill and Britain were not like the weary boxer, leaning in the corner of the ring, with his gloves covering his face. No! that was never Churchill’s style, the British took to the air defended their island home! They did their best to attack the Germans whenever they could.

When Goering and the Luftwaffe could not put the British on bended knee, the Nazi’s turned east. The victory of the Battle of Britain, won by “The Few,” as Churchill said in a speech honoring the men of the Spitfires and Hurricanes, was the turning point of the war.

Everyday our freedoms and liberties are being challenged. Ronald Reagan said in a speech that the loss of freedom is only one generation away. He was right.

On May 8th, please take a moment and raise your glass, filled with your favorite beverage, and give thanks to that greatest of generations and to Sir Winston Churchill who roared like a lion defending the cause of freedom.

“Long live the cause of freedom…” – Winston Churchill

Demolition of History and Heroes

Culture is a difficult thing to change. It may be easier to destroy. To properly send culture into an upheaval requires the control of the educational system, teaching revisionist history, defaming the heroes and what they stood for and command the power of the language. A good example of controlling the language:  Illegal Alien = Illegal Immigrant = undocumented Immigrant = migrant. Refining the language into the phony idea of Political Correctness is foundational to undermining the freedom of the English-speaking people.

Our Founding Fathers, most notably George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, set forth on a grand experiment. Freedom and Liberty. A government ruled by the people.

Washington and Jefferson have become targets of the left for the sole reason of being slave owners. Set aside what they accomplished; it no longer matters. This revision is being taught in many of our public school systems today. Not that the Founding Fathers built our country and put their lives on the line for freedom and liberty, but that they were bad people because they owned slaves.

I have not understood why John Adams has not become a hero of the left. He refused to own slaves.  He supported big central government and was willing to stretch or break the meaning of the constitution. It was those actions that contributed to the end of the friendship between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson’s crafty political maneuvering allowing him to defeat Adams in his bid for a second term did not help either.  Although I do not agree with many of Adam’s political actions, I do admire him all the same. If it were not for his angry persistence for freedom, our nation might have never come to be.

In many states, we are witnessing the removal of historical icons and history books are being revised because of the pervasive, “That triggers me, makes me feel sad, please take it away.” culture that has infected us like a virus. Helicopter parents who raise their children ready made for “Safe Spaces.”

Good examples of this are the “Safe Spacers” wanting to remove any reference to American Indians. Images of proud warriors and chiefs are being removed, History is being made to bend because of perceived exploitation and terrors inflicted on our American Indian brothers and sisters by the white man. (Read angry white male.) There are Confederate statues across the southern and eastern parts of our country being demolished.  Somehow the Safe Spacers and left socialist supporters believe that if you remove the statue, it erases an unfortunate part of our history. The icons should remain to remind us that we cannot let it happen again.

Teaching revisionist history could be the deadliest sin of all. Every person of historical note has their own set of foibles. We are humans, after all. Without a solid understanding of REAL history, we will become the buffoons of the future – we well may already down that path.  Without a historical foundation, our freedoms will crumble right before our eyes.

We The People are the only ones that can stop this.

Books below are excellent reads about John Adams and Thomas Jefferson
