Spread the love


Editorial by Doug Cook

I was troubled by an event that took place last winter. Thought about it for a long time. Then it came to me, it came as a most sudden epiphany. It was  why one of the first acts of feckless diplomacy Barrack Obama committed upon residing in the White House, was to ship the gift true friendship of Winston Churchill’s bust back to the British government.

The epiphany came as not what I felt was troubling my heart, but how to put words to an instinctual sense of a wrong .

Winston Churchill was one hell of a guy. I believe he was the savings grace of the world during World War II.


Churchill--Let us go forard together

In the darkest hour of world turmoil Prime Minister Churchill was a constant light of hope and change for people throughout the free world. Churchill never gave up. He was the bulwark to the impending evil of oppression and subjugation of the world created by the hand of one who deceived so many, a one world usurper.

Churchill words were: “The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.”

Churchill in my mind is one of the world’s true Patriots, a man of unimpeachable principles with a warrior’s heart. He knew what needed to done. Winston never flinched in his ultimate duty. He believed with all his might in right and the indomitable human spirit. He believed in people.


Churchill was a world leader in every sense of the word. He had a brief but eventful career in the army. He became a Conservative Member of Parliament in 1900 and in May, 1940, he became Prime Minister of Britain. Appointed Chief of the Admiralty. He received many honors and decorations in his lifetime including an honorary citizenship of the United States in 1963, and he won the Nobel Prize in Literature 1953 to name only a few. He was a voice of strength and assurance in the dark days of a world in great turmoil. He was a man of words, and a man of his word.


War is not only an act of physical destruction; it is a war of words and deeds for hearts and minds.

As Mr. Churchill had a patriot warrior’s heart he was anathema to everything counter to freedom and liberty.

June, 1940; But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.”

He was in part of the mold of that soldier kept in a glass display with a placard that read “break only in case of war”.

There are a good many people who say, ‘Never mind. Win or lose, sink or swim, better die than submit to tyranny–and such a tyranny.’ And I do not dissociate myself from them.

Winston Churchill is an undeniable example of everything good and right about the human race.

All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.”

His voice rang out through the darkness, a voice with a guiding message of light for a free world to join together in the battle for what is right, what matters most.


This remarkable human being represented all peoples with love and with dignity in a time when we needed it most. Then and now.

It is a paradox of human nature that a  people we revolted against to gain Independence and Freedom from repression, we in turn came to mutual aid in times of dire straights in their fight for Freedom of repression. These are the same people who gave us the Magna Carter and Habeas Corpus. These are our Brothers, we are cousins of Liberty. Brothers and Sisters whom have stuck by each-other through thick and thin.

Our great friends gave us Sir Winston Churchill, one of the finest leaders of Liberty and Freedom the world has known.

They gave the gift of amazing grace.


A Christian hymn by English Anglican clergyman and poet John Newton (1725–1807)

Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear,
And Grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come.
‘Tis Grace hath brought me safe thus far
And Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His Word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.
