Happy Birthday Sir Winston!

After having searched exhaustively for a tribute worthy of the occassion of Sir Winston's 134th birthday, November 30, we were forced to conclude that there exists none superior to our own. Thus, in characteristic humility and grace, we present below our post of last year: The Nanny Who Saved Western Civilization.

An inspiring story, not of material rags to riches, but of one born into moral destitution, saved by an angel, and guided gently to moral courage of historic proportions.

Happy birthday dear friend.



The Nanny Who Saved Western Civilization

Few pedigrees read as impressively: descendant of John Churchill, “the Duke of Marlborough,” by some accounts the greatest military leader Britain has ever produced; son of Randolph Churchill, a man of such political aptitude he was made England’s Chancellor of the Exchequer and Leader of the House of Commons simultaneously at the unheard of age of only 37; son of Jeaneatte Jerome Churchill, the beautiful American heiress whose favor was sought throughout Victorian high society. From this magnificent lineage emerged one Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill, born 30 November, 1874. Nonetheless, Sir Winston somehow managed to overcome all this and make something of himself!

You see the remainder of the story reveals that Sir Winston’s father was your standard issue upper-class twit whose ambition and pride drove him to make disastrous decisions leading to the destruction of his career and then, of course, the requisite excesses of alcohol, drugs, and ultimately death by syphilis in 1892 at the age of 48. His mother was a notorious adulteress whose legendary promiscuity saw her thrice married and ever scandal-ridden. Their marriage was a hushed and hurried affair as Jeanette had gotten pregnant prior to it, presumably by Lord Randolph but no one could be quite sure. To secure the nuptial, Jeanette’s father (Leonard Jerome, stock speculator and editor of the New York Times - need we say more!) bribed Lord Randolph with a “dowry” equivalent to roughly 2.5 million in present day American dollars.

As was the fashion in Victorian England, Lord and Lady Randolph Churchill completely ignored their two son’s – Winston the first, John the second (also believed sired by one other than Sir Randolph) – devoting their time to far more important matters of high society and career advancement. What time they did spend with young Winston was hurried, harried, exasperated, and fraught with contempt and irritation at their “little monster.”

Lord Randolph openly and regularly expressed his disapproval of and disappointment in young Winston –he thought the boy retarded – and maintained his paternal aversion until his dying day. That Sir Winston was never able to prove his worth to his ever-disapproving father was a source of profound pain for him throughout his life.

With this then we wonder from whence came the Sir Winston we know today; the embodiment of courage, character, conviction, righteous defiance, and the eloquent championing of “Christian Civilization?” Clearly the man was endowed by his Creator with innumerable gifts. But far too often – more often than is probably known – the story of such gifted individuals in circumstances such as young Sir Winston’s goes the route of Lord Randolph Churchill and not that of his heroic son.

The salvation of Sir Winston Churchill, and thus, we would argue, of Western Civilization some 66 years later, was a nice little old lady named Elizabeth Anne Everest. The consummate nanny of Victorian England, this plump, pleasant, quiet little woman was charged by Lord and Lady Randolph as wet nurse and keeper of our little monster.

From Sir Winston’s birth until his twentieth year, Mrs. Everest provided a steady regimen of love, understanding, faith, firm principles, gentle guidance, and Christian instruction. Her influence upon him is incalculable, however, in this inspiring tribute to Mrs. Everest, author Stephen Mansfield concludes,

“So it was that when the man some called the ‘Greatest Man of the Age,’ lay dying in 1965 at the age of ninety, there was but one picture that stood at his bedside. It was the picture of his beloved nanny, gone to be with her Lord some seventy years before.”

We strongly encourage you to read Mr. Mansfield’s tribute, particularly on the day of November 30, Sir Winston’s birthday. A day and a man likely few would distinguish from any other, were it not for a fussing little English nanny called, Mrs. Everest.

And so it begins...

The “Office of the President-Elect” has announced its plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 Percent by 2050. It would accomplish this through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to “implement an economy-wide cap-and-trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” This would “make the U.S. a leader on climate change.”

This would also make the U.S. a third world nation. Well why not, pretty much everyone else is!

The Heritage Foundation reports,

“This intrusive regulation will cost the American economy nearly $7 trillion dollars in lost GDP in just 20 years, and result in massive job losses. Heritage’s respected Center for Data Analysis estimates non-farm employment losses will exceed 800,000 in some years, and manufacturing jobs will plummet. Some industries would lose over half of their jobs. Government permits would be needed to expand small businesses and build homes, hospitals and schools. To add insult to injury, foreign competitors will not have to abide by these regulations, leaving American businesses at a disadvantage.”

America, this is a very real threat to your very real economy for a nebulous, unsubstantiated, and quite likely non-existent threat – global warming. You are already well down the road to socialism. Giving this degree of economic control to agencies of the government would pretty much cinch the deal. Will you give it all away so easily?

um ... the war ... it's over

Perhaps you missed the three-inch, bold, all-caps headlines in newspapers across the globe? The Iraq war is over. Oh that's right, there weren't any headlines. And we expect none to come.

No need to thank us President Obama. You will be the troop-delivering hero you promised to be. Congrats! (Oh ...ditto Mr. Bush, the military etc. etc.)

President Bush to Pen Bush Tell-All Book


Contact: Charlie at

November 13, 2008 - Washington D.C. Outgoing, lame-duck, immensely unpopular, and quite possibly criminal President George W. Bush announced today that he has signed a multi-million dollar book deal with DNC Press to pen his autobiography, Confessions of a Silver-Spooned, Alcoholic, Neo-Nazi, Greed-Crazed Mad Man: George W. Bush Comes Clean. Co-authoring the book with Mr. Bush will be movie-moguls Michael Moore and Oliver Stone, along with nationally syndicated columnist, Maureen Dowd.

“After my meeting with President-elect Obama, I suddenly saw the error of my ways over the past eight years, in fact, throughout my entire lifetime,” said Bush in an oddly serene voice at his press conference announcing the book deal. “Brave souls before me have tried to tell the truth about me, but my jack-booted thugs and I shut them down. It’s time the American people know the full story.”

Bush previewed many of the explosive revelations to be made in the book: his lust for alcohol and cocaine, his murderous hatred of non-whites and the indigent, his collection of Gestapo uniforms, his tragic sexual obsession with Saddam Hussein, his scheme to undermine and destroy free-market capitalism, and just what the hell he was thinking with Harriet Meyers.

“I have much to answer for and I must be brought to justice,” declared Bush. “That’s why I have agreed to turn myself and my entire administration over to an Islamic court and accept whatever verdict Sharia law deems appropriate, should President Obama’s investigations come up short.”

Bush was referring to President-Elect Obama’s recent statements about his seeking to prosecute members of the Bush administration for green-lighting torture, as well as for other crimes that took place in the Bush White House.

“What I would want to do is to have my Justice Department and my Attorney General immediately review the information that’s already there and to find out - are there inquiries that need to be pursued,” said Obama of the investigations. “I would not want my first term consumed by what was perceived on the part of Republicans as a partisan witch hunt,” added Mr. Obama in his fair, judicious, and measured way. He concluded, however, that “nobody is above the law.” [A moment of silence please.]

“I sure do appreciate President-Elect Obama hooking me up with DNC Press and world-class writers like Mikey, Ollie, and Moe,” said Bush, tears streaming down his ashen face, disfigured by the weight of his many crimes against humanity. “Lord knows I couldn’t put a decent sentence together to save my life; which is why, I suppose, I’m the fix I’m in. I’m so ashamed!”

Proceeds from the sales of Confessions of a Silver-Spooned, Alcoholic, Neo-Nazi, Greed-Crazed Mad Man: George W. Bush Comes Clean will go to the United Auto Workers bail-out fund.

Veteran's Day 2008

"The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or on the next. It was the deep knowledge -- and pray God we have not lost it -- that there is a profound, moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest. You were here to liberate, not to conquer, and so you and those others did not doubt your cause. And you were right not to doubt. You all knew that some things are worth dying for. One's country is worth dying for, and democracy is worth dying for, because it's the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man."

- Ronald Reagan, 40th anniversary of the D-Day invasion at Normandy, France

To our beloved American heroes, we, the free, thank you!

We don’t get fooled again?

Still reeling from financial devastation resultant of nationwide investment in things they cannot afford, the people of the United States have demonstrated their new found wisdom by investing in something they cannot afford: Barack Obama.

The consumer-nation will soon be experiencing buyer’s remorse on an epidemic scale as they have been sold a bill of goods historians cannot fathom and marketing execs are salivating over.

“November 4, 2008, will go down in history as the biggest day ever in the history of marketing” writes Al Ries for in his article, “What Marketers Can Learn form Obama’s Campaign. Change -- and Positioning -- You Can Believe in”

“Take a relatively unknown man. Younger than all of his opponents. Black. With a bad-sounding name. Consider his first opponent: the best-known woman in America, connected to one of the most successful politicians in history. Then consider his second opponent: a well-known war hero with a long, distinguished record as a U.S. senator.

It didn't matter. Barack Obama had a better marketing strategy than either of them. ‘Change.’"

Mr. Ries' goes on to provide a marketing analysis of the genius of the Obama campaign, selling re-packaged leftist feel good inanities to consumers who are allegedly among the most savvy in the world.

Evidently not.

Enjoy the party America. It’s going to be one hell of a hangover, for the entire world.

Change You WILL Believe In!

“Great hopes have been raised in the electoral campaign, and from those hopes has sprung their great political victory. Time will show whether those hopes are well founded, as we deeply trust they may be.

We are, I understand, after nationalising the coal-mines, to deal with the railways, electricity and transport. Yet at the same time the Trade Unions feel it necessary to be heavily rearmed against State Socialism. Apparently the new age is not to be so happy for the wage earners as we have been asked to believe. "

- Sir Winston Churchill in his 'Why Should We Fear for our Future?' speech before the House of Commons, 16th August 1945, after having been voted out of office in favor of the socialists.

Liberty Schmiberty – Gives Us Our #$&^%* Goodies!

(Don't miss our smash new YouTube video: “Say the Magic Word and Vote Obama”)

"There can be no doubt that socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the abject worship of the state. Socialism is in its essence an attack not only upon British enterprise, but upon the right of the ordinary man or woman to breathe freely without having a harsh, clumsy tyrannical hand clasped across their mouth and nostrils. (Labour) would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance."
- Sir Winston Churchill, 1945 election broadcast

We have seen all this before. In 1945 the British people demonstrated their appreciation of the man who had saved them from enslavement at the hands of National Socialists by voting him out of office and voting in the socialists.


The socialist (a.k.a. Labour) promised “Freedom from Want” via all manner of Lefty goodies like government-created full employment, a tax-funded universal National Health Service, and a cradle-to-grave welfare state; their sunny campaign slogan: "Let us face the future.”

By contrast, Sir Winston’s familiar grumblings about God and country had grown tiresome. The war weary electorate sought hope and change. They got it.

With Labour's landslide victory in 1945, the fundamentals of the British economy were nationalized, changing British society forever. Lady Thatcher’s attempts at recovery beginning in 1979 were heroic and surprisingly productive. Nonetheless, the tide could not be turned. The people must be coddled.

Thus today, Britain is the defenseless, international irrelevance that it is, on the verge of becoming the northwestern most outpost of the current global caliphate.

Presently America finds itself at a nearly identical crossroads and appears poised to follow Britain’s lead. On November 4 we shall find out once and for all. (Amid all the rioting and charges of vote fraud, of course, it may take a few extra weeks.)

We would highly (desperately) recommend voters seriously consider the matters raised not only in our own video above, but in the following:

-The Obama Strategy
- Obama’s WBEZ Chicago interview
(Beak tip to Always On Watch!)

Everyone wants to feel hope and experience change. Everyone wants freedom from want (ironic, eh?). History has demonstrated in no uncertain terms , however, that these are states of mind, not of government; and attempts at bringing them about through the power of government can be done so only with tanks, terror, reeducation camps, or in this the smiley-faced era, “human rights commissions.”

America - choose wisely. Please!
