As most who have been reading Paradigms and Demographics know, I am fascinated by history. I firmly believe that we desperately need to understand the entire history of an issue in order to make solid decisions. Give me the history and I will give you the answer.
The trouble with history is that there is so much of it. Although I have read smatterings of the information discussed in the following article there is much here that I never knew. It explains much. As for FDR….Harry Truman said the problem with the president was that “he lies”. Roosevelt had no problem letting everyone think he was on their side…..everyone! In reality, he had much more in common philosophically with Stalin, Mussolini and Hitler than he did with his fellow Americans. He is on record of praising all of them for their socialist ‘successes’ before the war.
For the record; communism and fascism are both left wing philosophies. Fascism is the right wing of socialism and communism is the left wing. However, they are still different sides of the same coin.
Also for the record; I keep hearing lefties on the talk shows demanding to know what a socialist is and watching the righties squirm. I don’t know which is dumber.
Here is the definitive answer.
Socialism is a belief that central planning by a few elites can effectively tell everyone else in the world how to live, even if it means enforcing their dictates by a regulatory police state which will ultimately create a utopian world, without regard for individual rights or the failed outcomes of their central planning.
This explains why they so desperately attempt to destroy the U.S. Constitution. I do so wish that more people read Orwell’s Animal Farm. At any rate, this article is profound and provocative and lays the ground work for understanding much of why the world is in the state it is. Profound and Provocative….just my cup of tea!
AS for this first article, there is much I didn't know about why the war lasted as long as it did. This really is an important read. The second article shows that things still stink not only at Foggy Bottom, but the stench permeates all levels of government.
Dresden, Hiroshima, and Soviet Machinations
The anniversary of the Allied bombing of Dresden on February 13 and 14, 1945 has become an increasingly contentious memory for thousands of Germans. Historians have debated the military value of the old and crowded city, some saying it had little significance, with others pointing out that until the bombing it was still active with war production. What few doubt is that the war was already lost for Germany before the bombing of Dresden, and that the unconditional surrender demanded by President Roosevelt was inevitable in a few weeks no matter what.........
What is even more certain is that the intractable decision of FDR to settle for nothing less than unconditional surrender by the Axis Powers cost tens of millions of lives, lengthened the war, and extended the reach of Soviet power dramatically. Such an outcome is what traitors deep within the U.S. government wanted. In Europe, the demand for unconditional surrender meant that the brave Germans who worked to end the evil of national socialism worked without hope. The Anglo-American nations threw back every overture from these anti-Nazi Germans, some of whom held positions of influence in the military and government (though no in the Nazi Party)….
By 1944, however, the Roosevelt administration was honeycombed with Soviet agents; Britain, also, had been infiltrated at different levels. The firebombing of German and Japanese cities by the Allies would insure bitterness lasting for many generations. The invitation of the Soviet Union to occupy half of Europe and half of Asia — despite Stalin’s de facto alliance with Hitler and his faithful four-year allegiance to his wartime non-aggression pact with Japan — guaranteed that that Marxist power could enslave and impoverish hundreds of millions of souls.
Obama's giveaway: Oil-rich islands to Russia
Exclusive: Joe Miller sounds alarm over deal to put land in hands of Putin's Kremlin
By Joe Miller
The Obama administration, despite the nation’s economic woes, effectively killed the job-producing Keystone Pipeline last month. The Arab Spring is turning the oil production of Libya and other Arab nations over to the Muslim Brotherhood. Iraq is distancing itself from the U.S. And everyone recognizes that Iran, whose crude supplies are critical to the European economy, will do anything it can to frustrate America’s strategic interests. In the face of all of this, Obama insists on cutting back U.S. oil potential with outrageous restrictions…..
Author’s addendum, Feb. 17, 2012: This is not a new issue. In fact the Bush and Clinton administrations are directly at fault for the same inaction. A maritime agreement negotiated by the U.S. State Department set the Russian boundary on the other side of the disputed islands, but no treaty has ratified this action. Consequently, it is within the president’s power to stop this giveaway. The Alaska delegation’s failure to put pressure on the administration is inexplicable. State Department Watch, an organization that assisted with this article, has confronted each administration and is currently confronting the Obama administration — and has been met by silence. I’m hoping this piece will help reinvigorate efforts to stop this handover.
