Denying Threats

October 5, 2015

When Romney said that Russia is the U.S.’s biggest geopolitical foe during a 2012 presidential debate, Obama scoffed, saying: “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.” Voters ignored Obama’s inexperience and naiveté and he became president with a failed policy arrogantly and egotistically treating Putin as an insignificant threat.

During a recent GOP candidate debate, Marco Rubio (accurately) predicted Putin’s current actions in Syria and he, too, was ridiculed. President Reagan was vilified for daring to call the Soviet Union the Evil Empire. Pie-in-the-sky ideology does not recognize the existence of evil-doers – unless they are Republicans.

The Left downplays or completely ignores real threats to America because recognizing them would result in taking action and that could require use of military might which they loathe. In Obama’s case, it would also mean admitting his weak foreign policies have failed, especially with regard to Russia where relations have been “re-set” by his administration. The Left picks targets that are politically correct and safe.

During Obama’s administration our troops were prematurely pulled out of Iraq; the “red line” in Syria was crossed and ignored; ISIS developed and now violently rampages in the Middle East; Iran received more time to develop a nuclear weapon unimpeded; Putin invaded the Ukraine; illegal immigrants were encouraged to and allowed to invade our country; North Korea increased threats to South Korea; and China increased expansionist activities.

The Left, meanwhile, has concentrated on threats from: Israel; Christmas and crèches; traditional marriage; FOX News; border security; profiling terrorists; decreased government spending; voter ID cards; the Tea Party; a strong military; displaying the American flag; the Washington Redskins; limits on abortion; the police; school lunches; Republicans; lower taxes; the 2nd Amendment; Confederate flags and statues; Uber; coal; the Keystone pipeline; male and female rest rooms; and even children playing tag.

Feeling Safe?

Say Goodbye to Christmas

December 1, 2012

It has become commonplace for the holiday season to bring furor and protests from progressives concerning Christmas trees, nativity scenes, and almost anything traditionally associated with Christmas. Even though polls show that a majority of people still favor those traditions, it is now inevitable that they will be eradicated.

On FOX’s “The O’Reilly Factor”, Jesse Waters reported back to Bill O’Reilly his results of random interviews on the streets of Rhode Island concerning the governor’s renaming of a Christmas tree as a “Holiday tree”. Waters reported that most people he talked to preferred Christmas tree to Holiday tree, except at Brown University. He reported: “Everyone I spoke to at Brown University was pro-holiday tree”. Everyone.

The take-over of this country’s education system by progressives has been complete for years and students at every level are fully indoctrinated with a progressive agenda that has been fed to them, unchallenged, their entire time in school. They are the future of this country and fully programmed to implement what they have been taught.

There will always be a few who will not accept such an agenda, but they will be ostracized and silenced, perhaps even jailed, by a majority indoctrinated (brainwashed?) to follow that agenda religiously. It has already become a substitute religion for many having blind faith in the veracity of its tenets.

With the minds and hearts of our youth hijacked by the progressive agenda, there is little hope that future generations will even look back on American traditions such as Christmas with anything but scorn. It will become an historical embarrassment eliciting even more guilt over this country’s evil past.

So, the train has left the station; the chickens have hatched; the cat’s out of the bag; the ship has sailed; the die is cast – pick whichever idiom suits you best because there is no turning back. Say goodbye to Christmas and much, much more. The battle for our children and our traditions has been lost before most even knew there was a war. The enemy within has won.
