“Where does real integration take place in America? At the end of the day, it takes place in the marketplace, and if you come to that marketplace with no skills, what’s going to happen to you?” asked Howard Fuller, former chairman of Black Alliance for Educational Options.
Matlock blames Moscow’s hostility solely on the US, claiming that the US invited it by bombing Serbia without UN Security Council Approval in 1999, invading Iraq without UNSC approval in 2003, withdrawing from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in 2001, expanding NATO to include Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, the Baltic Republics, Romania, and Bulgaria; with supposed “plans” for US bases in the Baltics and the Balkans; by somehow “supporting” the democratic revolutions in Ukraine and Georgia; and by passing the Magnitsky Act, designed to punish Russian officials who violate human rights.
The legacy of Gerald R. Ford transcends the succession of political trends and social revolutions, and will live forever in the bloodlines of rescued children who comprise the roots of a new American family tree that will grow and flower for untold generations to come. There is no price that can be put on a legacy that made life possible where otherwise death would have been inevitable.

The “animal rights” lie has seeped so deeply into our social fabric that lawyers clamor to defend four-legged beasts in court, and people, in general, apply legalistic terms such as “death penalty” and “stay of execution” to dangerous animals which, for the sake of common sense and child safety, should be quickly put down.
The words “Operation Babylift” had a muted familiarity to me. I was 13 years old at the time the United States Military was forced by the 94th Congress to pull out of Southeast Asia. But my interest grew and Bob described to me an event which would come to be known as one of the greatest humanitarian efforts of the 20th Century.
Rand also says the US should “avoid antagonizing Russia over Ukraine” because Ukraine has, for a long time, been in Russia’s sphere of influence. “The Ukraine has a long history of either being a part of the Soviet Union or within that sphere.”
