A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

AMERICA WAS ONCE A LEADER!

Before Obama and far too many Progressives and Liberal Democratic politicians, American leaders did not apologize for our country’s prior actions. I doubt there is one single American citizen, illegal alien or dead voter that is blindly supporting Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders for President has ever read any of the following “FACTS”. In fact they would vote for a Democrat even if they did know as they are hell-bent on slashing our freedoms by ignoring and eventually destroying the Constitution.

Sadly some of these unhappy folks are in my family. Most live in Austin Texas where they were educated or have lived there so long among the Progressive-Liberals they have closed minds. As I have written before I was born a Democrat before a Republican was alive in Texas. I did not leave the Democratic Party, it left me when it changed from being the Conservative Party to what should be called the Socialist Party today. Hillary Clinton is a closet Communists and Bernie Sanders is an openly admitted Socialists. I doubt he has ever read the Constitution or the “Bill of Rights” and I have the same doubt for 99% of the group of robots I described in the first paragraph.

Although these “Blind Mice” will never read this article I pray enough who may be undecided will see that America did have some real leadership in the past. My friend Dan Fussel sent me this list of facts that motivated me to write this article. Dan is not as old as myself but we both remember these and other events that actually happened.

I hope everyone, including some in my own family, read these factual events and join me in voting for Donald Trump for President. He may not be a polished politician but he will make the rest of the polished ones either get their act together or retire and count our money they have accumulated. Many actually deserve a term in prison but we would have to pay for that too. I feel proud to just share these historical facts. Thanks Dan for stirring my memory.

FACTS

John Kennedy’s Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60’s when Charles DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaulle announced he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible. Rusk responded, “Does that include those who are buried here?” DeGaulle did not respond.

When in England, at a large conference, General Colin Powell, George Bush’s Secretary of State was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of ’empire building’ by George Bush. He answered by saying, “Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return.” Silence was immediate.

 

There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying, “Have you heard the latest dumb stunt George Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intend to do, bomb them?”

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: “Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?” Silence was immediate.

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. During a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks, but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, “Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?”

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, “Maybe it’s because the Brit’s, Canadians, Aussie’s and Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t have to speak German.” Silence was immediate.

THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE…Robert Whiting, an elderly American gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.

“You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs officer asked very sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

“Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.”

The American quickly responded, “The last time I was here, I didn’t have to show it.”

“Impossible’ responded the Frenchman. All Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France!”

Mr. Whiting gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then, he quietly explained, ”Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn’t find a single Frenchman to show a passport to.”

Today we just apologize for everything. As a boy during world war two the story of some country’s greatest war time military inventions included; France invented the “White flag” of surrender and the Italians invented back-up lights for tanks.

God Bless America and please vote for Trump. C Brewer

LEADERS – WE USED TO HAVE SOME!

Once upon a time American leaders did not apologize for our country’s actions, here’s a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our great country.

JFK’s Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60’s when DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO.

DeGaulle said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible.

Rusk responded, “Does that include those who are buried here?” De Gaulle did not respond.

I am proud to be of this land — AMERICA

HAVE A GOOD DAY

Thanks to my great friend Allan Moore for sharing this information. For those of you who have not been to France to suffer their arrogance, it is a pretty country. I was told years ago that the greatest French military invention was a white flag. I am sure that if I have any French readers they will cancel their subscription.
