Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum

The Veteran’s Day we celebrate now was originally known as Armistice Day until 1954. The purpose of the holiday was to commemorate the end of World War I on November 11, 1918. Presidents often participate in ceremonies on November 11th at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, now the Tomb of the Unknowns, at Arlington National Cemetery, which is located across the Potomac River from Washington, DC. President Roosevelt attended Armistice Day events at Arlington every November during his tenure in office. Presented here are photos from four of those years from the Harris and Ewing Photograph Collection held by the Library of Congress.

Interview with WWI US Navy Veteran Lester Hillegas

IHRA

While Veterans Day is always a time for us to honor those who have served in wars, this November 11th is especially notable because it also marks the 100th anniversary since the end of World War I. Instead of posting an interview with a World War II veteran, we wanted to share a superb interview posted by YouTube user ly776 that was recorded in the 1980s. Lester Hillegas served in the U.S. Navy during World War I and died in 1989.

To all of our veterans, we want to extend our sincerest appreciations for your military service.

November 11th is both a celebration of America’s Veterans and a commemoration of the Anniversary of the ending of World War I, once called Armistice Day, when the Germans, (the bad guys) formally surrendered to England and France (the good guys) in a railroad car at Compiegne, near Paris, ending the shooting.

The Versailles Treaty, in 1919, would finalize the details, which while called the War to End Wars, would only create new hatreds so that 20 years later, most of the same cast had built up enough strength to do it all over again, killing over 60 million that next time compared to the paltry 17 million lost in World War I.

I’m sure there’s a lesson there somewhere about laying down our lives for a our European friends, as France…

Texas: Nine More Arrested for Voting Fraud (That Democrats Claim Doesn’t Exist)…

Trigger Reset

Nine individuals were arrested Thursday for their alleged roles in a 2017 voter fraud scheme involving the municipal election in a Texas border town.

These arrests were part of an ongoing investigation into a coordinated effort by political workers to recruit people who would fraudulently claim residential addresses so they could vote in specific races and influence the results of the Edinburg city election held last year, according to information provided by the Office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

“Illegal voting, particularly an organized illegal voting scheme orchestrated by political operatives, is an affront to democracy and results in corruption at the highest level,” said Paxton in a prepared statement.

“Each illegal vote silences the voice of a law-abiding registered voter,” added Paxton. “My office will continue to do everything in its power to uncover illegal voting schemes and bring to justice those who try to manipulate the…

«WHAT IS LUSTRATION? MODELS OF LUSTRATION IN THE POST COMMUNIST EUROPEAN COUNTRIES»

By Kristina Gogic

Lustration is the process of making something clear or pure. The term is taken from the Roman lustrum purification rituals The term has been adapted to the purge of government officials who were once affiliated with the Communist system in Central and Eastern Europe. Various forms of lustration were employed in post-communist Europe. The concept might resemble de-Nazification in post-World War II Europe, and therefore resonates with concepts such as possible accountability for past human rights abuses, corruption or injustice.

Lustration of policies and laws

After the fall of the various European Communist governments in 1989–1991, the term came to refer to government-sanctioned policies of “mass disqualification of those associated with the abuses under the prior regime”. Procedures excluded…
