Stalin's Mysteriious DeathStalin's Mysterious Death

In a historic medical article published in Surgical Neurology International, Dr. Faria cites compelling evidence that the Soviet dictator was likely poisoned under the direction of his right hand henchman, Lavrenti Beria, with the very probable connivance of Nikita Khrushchev, who eventually succeeded Stalin and went on to dismantle Stalin's Cult of Personality and expose the "errors" of the former regime.

The photo shows then-French President François Hollande bestowing Legion of Honor medals on Briton Christopher Norman and Americans Anthony Sadler, Spencer Stone, and Alek Skarlatos, for their heroism in subduing an extremist Muslim terrorist on the 15:17 train from Amsterdam to Paris.

The terrorist armed himself with multiple firearms including an AK-47 as well as a box cutter. He boarded the train on Aug. 21, 2015, intending to kill as many passengers as possible. But he managed to shoot only one before he was rushed by the three Americans. Norman, a 62-year-old businessman, helped to subdue the terrorist.

Stone was a medic, and though seriously injured ‒ his thumb was almost severed — saved the passenger’s life by inserting two fingers into his neck wound and stopping the bleeding. The passenger survived, and Stone recovered from his injuries.

Stone, an airman second class, was awarded the Airman’s Medal and — significantly — the Purple Heart, signifying that he had been wounded in combat. Skarlatos, a National Guard specialist, received the Soldier’s Medal. Sadler, a...

This article then is very apropos now and unfortunately not for the last time.

Che Guevara, an icon of the left, thought that socialism and egalitarianism would create a “new socialist man” dedicated to the common good without the need of material incentives to work and live. Che lived long enough to see it did not, although he persisted. Socialistic policies have instead created deranged individuals who resent the success and blame others for their failures, and at some point become killers.

It does not bode well for us as a society that we have a broken criminal justice system with revolving prison doors that panders to criminals and forgets the victims. We have the popular culture of Hollywood, which led by producers like Harvey Weinstein and actors like Kevin Spacey, glorify antiheroes. We have a mainstream liberal press that sensationalizes crime and grants celebrity status to mass killers, while...
