Yesterday was the first Veterans Day since the revelations of the Obama Administration’s scandalous neglect of the health care of our armed forces by Veterans Administration hospitals. Earlier this week we also commemorated the fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago, with most media outlets continuing to neglect the reason it was erected in the first place, and the mass murdering history of its Evil Empire contractor.
There is a connection between these betrayals which makes it acceptable to appropriate the first name of the President of United States in their description.
Barack Hussein Obama famously declared himself a Citizen of the World in a 2008 campaign speech in Berlin (still no word on which united State’s electoral votes depended upon German votes), went on an Apology-to-Terrorists Tour in Cairo soon after his Inauguration, gave away American security-enhanced surge-gains in Iraq achieved by the blood of U.S. vets, refused to render the survivors of the War on Terror minimal adequate health care upon their return home, and otherwise has continually touted the virtues of increasingly totalitarian Big Government, even if grown via illegal and un-constitutional executive fiats. He has long embraced and happily owns the legacy of The Left, Wilsonian progressivism, anti-anti-Communism, McGovern-Carter appeasement, and all its iterations up to and including what is today called modern day liberalism, i.e. the Democratic Party and its media, academia and Hollywood branches.
Veterans Day, unlike so many other federal and/or national holidays, always occurs on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, thus frustrating the modern American relegation of so many national remembrances to mere devices for long idle weekends. Its date was fixed by the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour that day in 1918 when the Armistice that ended WWI took effect. And while all of Europe and late-to-enter-America were understandably war weary, the armistice itself and the fact of America’s entry were the first and second of many betrayals of Liberty to come in the 20th Century and which continue today in the 21st.
Democrat President Woodrow Wilson, first handed the presidency by the vain Third Party-betrayal of President Taft by Wilson’s fellow converted-uber progressive TR, campaigned for re-election promising not to send American boys to die overseas. President Wilson, in a quote famously cited by candidate Barack Obama, trashed the U.S. Constitution as a document of mere “negative liberties that failed to grant government the power to direct our lives, had spent his first term attempting to fundamentally transform the U.S. into a nation of subjects ruled by “experts”. He couldn’t wait to ramp up liberal totalitarian dreams with the moral authority of a war to supposedly make the world safe for Democracy. Hence, he was manipulated into an armistice that left the territory of war-mongering German Supermen in tact in exchange for a chance to rule the world via a League of Nations. Thankfully, Republicans in the U.S. Senate rejected the treaty, but the betrayal of all who fought the Kaiser’s version of what Hitler would megalomanically apply via national socialism aka Nazism, was effectuated.
Meanwhile, what would prove the even more diabolical result of The Great War to end all wars moved forward in Russia from Lenin’s Bolshevism to Stalin’s Communism, both mostly indistinguishable iterations of socialist totalitariansim in Germany and Italy.
Sadly, so many “intellectual elites” across Europe and the New World across the Atlantic Pond, became enamored of the world’s oldest religion and conceit, first proposed, as suggested by Whittaker Chambers in his Witness, by the Serpent to Eve in the Garden of Eden that “ye shall be as gods.”
The thus-annointed gods, so thrilled with the Soviet experiment, as documented by Diana West in her American Betrayal, refused to report its mass murders before WWII, infiltrated our government via alphabet soup agencies, and made delivery of arms to the USSR a Lend Lease-priority over U.S. forces in the Pacific after Pearl.
How many Americans know that the reason General MacArthur had to “return” to the Philippines was because Democrat FDR’s government denied him arms in the Pacific while they lost over half of supplies to Nazi U-boats sent to the Reds across the Atlantic. How many Americans know that Hitler’s Germany AND Uncle Joe Stalin’s Soviet Union started WWII in concert with a joint invasion of Poland and with the latter’s invasion of the Baltics? How many know that the Nuremberg Trials were a farce that convicted Germans of war crimes less horrific than those committed by the USSR, whose judges participated with our conspired silence.
How many know that the USSR built the Berlin Wall to keep people imprisoned behind the Iron Curtain, but that when Reagan called out the Evil Empire to tear down the wall, he was ridiculed by American liberal Democrats? Or that even President George H.W. Bush41, backed off any moral judgment against the history of Soviet mass murder, on a scale that makes Hitler look like a piker, when challenged by Mikhail Gorbachev after the Wall fell?
Why the betrayals? Why the liberal Democrat attack on anti-Communists for the past 70 years?
Why? For the same reason that liberal Democrats keep proposing proven failed domestic programs: their faith in being as gods over us, their lessers. They know best and if they could just be given more time, more money, more power and better bureaucrats, the godless Liberal Utopia will break out on Planet Earth. Whether its fixing the VA, health care via Obamacare or making Islamic terrorists like us, just let them be as gods for a minute longer and with more of your money.
Thankfully, a week ago a majority of American voters stood up and yelled Stop! It will take many more such stands athwart the false betrayals of history the Left writes and the actual history we live to reverse the betrayals of the fallen and surviving veterans and their families.
Thank you Veterans for your actual history of service to Liberty.
