A MAJOR move by the new Trump Administration has occurred !!

The artistic bust of Winston Churchill has been returned to the White House Oval Office !!

ex-President Obama had the Churchill bust removed.

Now it's back and apparently some other remodeling has taken place already.

President Trump returns bust of Churchill to Oval Office

Winston Churchill is back in the Oval Office.

On his first day in office, President Trump brought back a bust of the legendary British prime minister to the West Wing, after President Obama had removed it. Mr. Obama replaced it with a bust of Martin Luther King Jr.

Reporters who were summoned to the Oval Office Friday night to witness Mr. Trump signing an executive order noticed the Churchill bust had been returned to the Oval Office.

British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson had speculated that Mr. Obama removed Churchill’s bust in part because he is “part-Kenyan,” and was motivated by anti-colonial feelings. Mr. Obama refuted that, saying he had moved the bust to a place of prominence in his private office in the White House residence.

Here is a picture of Dresden, which was called the Florence of the North until it was devastated by a bombing campaign initiated and ordered by the "hero" Winston Churchill.






In February 1945, the last year of World War 2, Britain sent 300 Lancaster bombers to attack the crowded German city of Dresden. This attack was not the precision bombing of specific military targets. It was deliberate bombing of a whole area. The bombs destroyed city buildings and started tremendous fires. Before long, eleven square miles of Dresden were consumed by a firestorm. The vacuum caused by the rapid rise of hot air created tornadoes that tossed furniture, trees and debris into the air. People were caught in fires as hot as 1000 °C. The city was devastated. No one knows how many thousands died. The German armies were in retreat at this time and the war was nearly over. Some historians have argued that this attack was not justifiable on military grounds, that it was nothing more than a slaughter of civilians. But others say it helped to shorten the war in Europe. Ultimate responsibility for this attack lay with the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. Was the bombing of Dresden a justifiable act during wartime? How closely was Winston Churchill involved in the decision to attack the city? Does this cast a shadow upon Churchill's reputation as the heroic icon of twentieth century British history?

Did Aleister Crowley give Churchill the "V" for victory sign? Did he serve as a body double?



Methinks Churchill was NOT a very good man.

Trump is there to do a job. His "decorating preferences" are irrelevant.

Not a massive fan of Churchill esp after you do a bit of research into him..

But anything that starts to overturn the absurd mess that Obama has left is good with me, now get on with sorting all the other crap out..

And if we showed pictures of all the people Obama killed by drone or otherwise it would look horrific as well.

Churchill was actually a racist man:




“I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion.”





“I am strongly in favor of using poison gas against uncivilized tribes. It would spread a lively terror.”





“I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.”


Churchill even advocated killing civilians



“I do not want suggestions as to how we can disable the economy and the machinery of war, what I want are suggestions as to how we can roast the German refugees on their escape from Breslau.”


www.counterpunch.org...

Now I don't remember where I read this but Churchill refer non Anglo Saxon Europeans (French, Spanish, Eastern Europeans, Italians) as "dirty whites."

I suppose this is the kind of guy some find admirable.


If this type of behavior can be excused, anything could be justified.

Dresden pales into insignificence when compared to the millions of Jews murdred by The Nazi's.

Don't you agree ?

By your logic, if one man slaughters thousands, millions of innocent people, then a rational response to this murder is to slaughter thousands more innocent people. Did I get that right?

ONE death by government sanctioned firebombing is reprehensible, let alone thousands.

Who is a more admirable human being: Stalin, Hitler or John Wayne Gacy?

Evil is evil whether it be in response of horrific actions or not. Moral relativity is a dangerous game to play.

Not to mention the things the Japanese did to those they had in their power.

Between them, the Germans and the Japanese were hardly nice or kind to the people they had power over.

In the Pacific, the Japanese didn't take prisoners and they didn't kill mercifully. They used prisoners for bayonet practice or emasculated them and chopped off arms and legs before leaving what was left to die. They always fought to the last man forcing a kill or be killed situation.

And we all know what the Germans did.

But, yes, let's mope over how people bombed them.

I did hesitate using it because none of us are truly innocent. But children of all ages perished in the campaigns. That as close to innocence as we are gonna get.
