https://youtu.be/UXADj372WU0 On Sept. 1, 1939, 70 years ago, the German Army crossed the Polish frontier. On Sept. 3, Britain declared war. Six years later, 50 million Christians and Jews had perished. Britain was broken and bankrupt, Germany a smoldering ruin. Europe had served as the site of the most murderous combat known to man, and civilians had suffered worse horrors than the soldiers. By May 1945, Red Army hordes occupied all the great capitals of Central Europe: Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Berlin. A hundred million Christians were under the heel of the most barbarous tyranny in...

youtube thumbnail 1280x720 px (1)

https://youtu.be/1cV--8aT074 From Patrick McFarlane's Liberty Weekly Show Notes: In this first video/documentary style podcast, I review Lt. Col.

Next, we take a look at the US Army’s discovery of this resistance and their subsequent efforts to overcome it. Finally, I examine Dave Grossman himself, his overarching thesis, and his side business, where he conditions government goons to kill reflexively. Patrick...
