Truly great men often find that life’s practicalities get in the way of their more Utopian inclinations. Henry Ford, the great American industrialist and pioneer of the motoring class must have been a very enigmatic man.
History repeats and is spoken. Sadly, it is true but as long as mankind has existed wise men and pacifists and military men have argued against the futility of war, which never profits any but a few.
As far back as I recall I was under the illusion that the United States was an avowed opponent of Communist Russia. In my innocence, I also believed in the holocaust, war victors’ propaganda and Santa Claus. Being one of George Bernard Shaw’s 2% of the people who actually think for themselves each fantasy bit the dust when placed under a little critical analysis.
I can verify that this photo going around of Schwab with a statue of Lenin on his bookshelf is genuine. He really does have that in his office. This is based upon first-hand knowledge, not speculation or rumour.
MICHAEL WALSH OP-ED: since 1945 removing and re-writing real history has accelerated. As a rabbit is transfixed by an approaching car’s headlights, Europeans wherever they are in the world, appear to be unaware or unmoved by the burning of their history.
Before the outbreak of the Great War (1914 ~ 1918) there were available in selected Jewish-owned Warsaw shops greeting cards with images that were unavailable for Gentiles. The postcards carried the image of the tzadik. This is an image of a rabbinical Jew with the Torah in his one hand and a white fowl in the other. On these illegal greeting cards, available only by clandestine means, the head of the depicted fowl is clearly shown to be the Imperial Russian Tsar Nicholas II. Below this image is the inscription in Hebrew: “This is a sacrificial animal so is my cleansing; it will be my replacement and cleansing the victim.”

In July, 2021, the world will mourn the 103 years of remembrance of the massacre of Imperial Russia’s Tsar Nicholas II and his family. In 1918, Europe’s most admired royal family, second in timescale only to the Hapsburg Empire, were herded by their Bolshevik captors into a basement in Yekaterinburg under the pretext that their photograph was to be taken.
Since its establishment in 1860, the Russian Compound in Jerusalem has undergone many makeovers and ownership changes.
To better understand half-American Winston Churchill it is best to keep in mind that foremost the World War II warlord was an opportunist. A political chameleon, he changed sides of the House more times than he changed his women’s silk knickers, which he adored. It would be difficult to find anyone outside Hitler’s Germany to heap more praise on Adolf Hitler did. Winston Churchill had no problems changing his political rhetoric as the audience and opportunity required.
