This Summer's Battle of Britain

This Summer's Battle of Britain

Once upon a time, the English sang an anthem about freedom.  In the chorus they vowed "Britons never, never, never will be slaves."  But in 1973 they were tempted to surrender the dignity of self-government to unknown bureaucrats in Belgium who called themselves the European Union, and surrender they did.  Today they willingly pay a tribute of more than 18 billion pounds a year for the privilege of being demeaned internationally. Once the leader of the free world, Britain is now the follower of a feeble gaggle of politicians in Belgium.

To my new Syrian Muslim neighbor,

Welcome to America.  I understand your "multi-year screening experience"1 is over and you can now relax and settle in to the most peaceful, remarkable nation on earth.  You are stepping into privileges few people in history have ever known.     

Remember the Time an Islamic Invasion Was Crushed in Four Hours?

Remember the Time an Islamic Invasion Was Crushed in Four Hours?

Yes, it was a long time ago.  444 years to the day.  A jihadist invasion of Europe was stopped in its tracks in a head-on contest of wills.  The battle lasted a mere four hours.  The weaponry of battle was primitive, but the Islamists were totally defeated, and retreated into obscurity.  You would think that Europe would remember the day they were saved from an Islamic act of war.  But to do this requires the discernment to tell the difference between peace and war, and between historical revisionism and history.

Before NBC made Laura Ingalls a fictional 1970s teenager in a calico costume, she was a very real girl in a very non-fictional 1870s world. When she was 14 years old she attended an Independence Celebration in a small Dakota town. This was a time when America valued liberty and knew what it cost.

The Ghost of King John

800 years ago this morning, the knights, nobles and churchmen of Britain rose early, sharpened their swords and saddled up.  Then they rode, together, to a business meeting with the King of England. They assembled on a marsh-like meadow on the River Thames.  It wasn’t exactly a battlefield, but it might have become a muddy and bloody one.  Thousands of armed men met face to face with the King, his nervous bodyguards and cavalry.  The conversation was polite, but strained and deadly serious.

A Message From Geoffrey Botkin

Geoffrey Botkin

Why do historians call the family “the basic unit of society?” Because families build and then preserve the foundations of civilization. Parents and children can work together and learn together and create the very fabric of culture. When families know what they’re doing, the adventure of family life is stimulating beyond description. And home life becomes happy and highly rewarding. The families here at Western Conservatory are on an exhilarating mission to find and publish the lost secrets and tools families need to build the future. We are extraordinarily optimistic about the 21st century because we see so many American families rediscovering solid ground and a vision for freedom. Come with us on this journey of faith and promise. Let’s build the future together.
