The Berlin Wall fell, but communism didn’t. One hundred years after the Bolshevik Revolution, one-fifth of the world’s population still lives under single-party communist regimes in China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, and Vietnam. Communist regimes commit the worst and widest-scale human rights abuses on the planet.
Communism promises to make everyone equal, but delivers radical inequality. Every time it’s tried, it ends in economic collapse or a police state.
From the famines, purges, and gulags of Soviet Russia to Mao’s Great Leap Forward and the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge—from the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre to the Castro regime’s 2012 murder of Oswaldo Payá—communists have killed more than 100 million people. Countless more suffered and suffer still.
In China today, 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo is a political prisoner. His crime: calling for reforms to China’s single-party communist rule. In Cuba in 2015, Sirley Ávila León was machete-attacked by a paroled criminal sent by state security services. Her crime: trying to re-open the school in her village.

For more than 30 years, Scott Baio has been a beloved actor, successful producer, writer and director. From child actor to teen idol to adult superstar, Baio has stolen the hearts of women all around the globe.
Born in Brooklyn, New York on Sept. 22, 1960, Baio’s parents decided to send him to auditions after his cousins Joey and Jimmy Baio broke into television commercials and minor sitcom acting. Before he knew it, he was landing small parts and eventually had his big break in 1976 when he was cast as the lead in the youthful gangster film “Bugsy Malone.” Due to his early acting career, Scott never graduated from North Hollywood High School.
Baio is best known for his roles as Chachi Arcola on “Happy Days” and “Joanie Loves Chaci,” as well as Charles on the hit 1980s sitcom “Charles in Charge.” At the height of “Happy Days” fame, Baio received around 5,000 letters each week from adoring fans, sealing his role as influential teen superstar. His New York accent and windblown hair along with tight blue jeans became Chachi Arcola’s trademark and the look that Scott Baio would be remembered for forever.
Post Chachi in the 1980s, Baio delved into some deeper and more dramatic television roles, typically playing troubled teens. He was cast as a shy teen who became involved with marijuana in the award-winning “Stoned,” an “ABC Afterschool Special.” Baio also starred as an alcoholic teenager in the CBS film “The Boy Who Drank Too Much” and played a hemophiliac in NBC’s “Senior Trip!”

The Remembrance Project was created in 2009 to honor and remember Americans who have been killed by illegal aliens. The Remembrance Project educates, raises awareness, and conducts outreach in order to support and protect Americansand their families’ well-being and safety through upholding U.S. laws and following the Constitution.
Every state is a “border state.”
Pro-amnesty special interests have spent millions on spreading the lie that the legalization of undocumented aliens is somehow good for America and American families.
We need your help in combating the lies of these deceptive open-border operatives.
Already tens of thousands of Americans have been killed by illegal aliens. And now, with the current border crises that has made every state a “Border State”, it is more important than ever to bring awareness to this very real American tragedy.
The Remembrance Project is bringing national attention to these under-reported killings, and is “connecting-the-dots” through its initiative, the “Stolen Lives Quilt” – a visual memorial dedicated to slain Americans, who would otherwise still be alive and with their families, if only current laws were enforced.
Your donation is greatly needed so that we may continue to spread the message of the Quilt all across America, and help turn the tide in favor of the rule of law and for the safety of our families…and our communities.

When the mighty Steamboat Arabia sank near Kansas City on September 5, 1856, she carried 200 tons of mystery cargo. Lost for 132 years, its recovery in 1988 was like finding the King Tut’s Tomb of the Missouri River. Remarkably preserved clothes, tools, guns, dishware and more. The discovery was truly a modern day treasure-hunting story at its best.
The Arabia Steamboat Museum is a unique Kansas City attraction: a time capsule of life on the American frontier in the mid-nineteenth century. It is not your typical museum. Visitors have the one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience the everyday objects that made life possible for pioneers in the 1800s. It is the largest single collection of pre-Civil War artifacts in the world.
The Steamboat Arabia was one of many casualties of the perilous Missouri River. The Mighty Missouri, as it was often called, is the longest river in the United States and has claimed nearly 400 other steamboats over its 2,500 mile course. In September 1856, the Arabia was carrying over 200 tons of cargo intended for general stores and homes in 16 mid-western frontier towns. The steamer was still fully loaded when it hit a tree snag and sank just 6 miles west of Kansas City. Due to erosion, the Missouri River changed course over time, and the Arabia was buried underground for over a century – along with all of its precious cargo. Lying 45-feet deep beneath a Kansas cornfield, the Arabia’s payload was protected from light and oxygen and was thus remarkably well preserved.
Steven Seagal is a man of diverse character whose spiritual beliefs and humanity are woven into every aspect of his life.
Most of us know Steven for his roles as an action hero with an acting career that was launched from his Los Angeles Dojo in the late 80?s where he taught Martial Arts to the likes of Sean Connery, James Coburn and the famed talent agent, Michael Ovitz.
It was Mr. Ovitz who paved the way for Steven to co-write and star in his first and hugely successful action film “Above the Law” in 1988.From this initial success it launched a career that now spans over 22 years and nearly 40 x movies, plus 2 x major Television series and $2 billion in box office revenues.
Steven immerses himself in his work on the screen, writing, producing, directing and acting.
His films include box office successes such as Hard to Kill, Marked for Death, Out for Justice, Above the Law, Under Siege, Executive Decision, The Glimmer Man, and Exit Wounds to name a few, are all loved for their storylines and fast paced Hollywood action.
Watch the full 77-minute session, in which Donald Trump says he wants to update the people on the ‘incredible progress’ made in the past four weeks. The president turns fire on the media, calling the industry dishonest and ‘out of control’. He dismisses reports of chaos and conspiracy in his administration and claims his team is running like a ‘fine-tuned machine’.
I watch Hollywood awards ceremonies where a supposed artist screams out for punching people in the face for political disagreements, and the entire horde of Botoxed brain zombies leaps to their feet in an ungodly and unholy howl of rampant bloodlust approval.
“We can call it Cultural Marxism, but at the end of the day, we experience it on a day to day basis, by that I mean a minute by minute, second by second basis. It’s political correctness and it’s multiculturalism.” – Andrew Breitbart
