When the Giving Tree Stops Giving

July 15, 2018

The United States of America emerged from World War II as the world's undisputed superpower economically and militarily. The Marshall Plan (officially the European Recovery Program, ERP) was an American initiative to aid Western Europe that gave over $13 billion (nearly $110 billion in 2016 US dollars) in economic assistance to help rebuild Western European communities after the end of the war.

Nationalism is NOT a Dirty Word!

June 30, 2018

When did American nationalism become a dirty word? Under Obama of course! Obama's leftist war against America is a war against American nationalism. America emerged from WWII as the most powerful economic nation on earth and invincible militarily. Enemies of the United States domestically and internationally would need a different strategy to defeat her.

Aesop's 6th century B.C. fable "The Four Oxen and the Lion" offers that strategy.
