WILL AMERICANS EVER STAND UP FOR AMERICA AGAIN?

My friend and often guest writer, Ron Jenkins, sent me the following history lesson and challenge. I have altered it to fit how my own grandfather, father and how I fit the basic outline. I did make some minor changes and I deeply admire the unknown author. This may have been around for some time but it is the first time it came my way.

This hit me as a wake up call for Americans to stop, think, revue what is happening and please help Trump make America great again. When you add up the Americans who died or were maimed defending our freedoms over the last 100 years it is staggering. Thanks Ron and everyone please share this with every American they know who might help. C Brewer

WHAT A MESSAGE!

My Grandfather watched as his friends died in WWI and WWII.              

My Father watched as his friends died in WWI, WWII and Korea.                               

I watched as my friends fought and died in WWII.

I served in the US Navy and watched as my friends died in Korea.

I watched as our friends died in Vietnam, I also watched my brother who served two tours and died at 55 because of the way the military was treated by other Americans when they came home.

I watched as our friends and their children both fought & died in Desert Storm.

I watched & waited while our friends & children fought and died in Iraq.     

None of them fought for or died for the Mexican Flag or any other foreign flag.          

Everyone fought for and died for the US flag.

In Texas, a student raised a Mexican flag on a school flag pole; another student took it down.

Guess who was expelled… The kid who took it down!!!

Kids in high school in California were sent home on Cinco de Mayo because they wore T-shirts with  the American flag printed on them.

Enough is enough!!!               

The message below needs to be viewed by every American;

And every American needs to stand up for America!!!

We’ve bent  over to appease the America-haters long enough.

I’m taking a stand, will you?

I’m standing up because the hundreds of thousands who died fighting in wars for this country, and for the U.S. Flag who can’t stand up.

And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message.            

Let me make this perfectly clear!!!

FELLOW AMERICANS THIS IS OUR COUNTRY!!!

And, my making these statements DOES NOT Mean I’m against immigration!!!

WE WELCOME NEWCOMERS TO OUR COUNTRY, IF THEY COME LEGALLY!

To come through legally, THEY MUST:  

  1.  Get a sponsor!
  2.  Get a place to lay your head!
  3.  Get a job!
  4. Live By OUR Rules!
  5. Pay YOUR Taxes!

AND

  1. Learn the  LANGUAGE like immigrants have in the past!!!

  AND

  1.  Please don’t demand that we hand over our lifetime Savings of Social Security Funds to you.             

                                                                              AMERICANS STOP giving away YOUR  RIGHTS ???

We’ve gone so far the other way.

We’ve bent over backwards not to offend anyone…

But it seems no one cares about the AMERICAN CITIZEN being offended!!!

WAKE UP AMERICANS                   ANON

THE GAME OF CHICKEN!

The phrase game of chicken is used as a metaphor for a situation where two parties engage in a showdown where they have nothing to gain and only pride stops them from backing down.

When I was a boy over 70 years ago I was introduced to the game of chicken. With little money for entertainment the neighborhood children dreamed up things to entertain each other. This was a time when we had parents that made sure we did not annoy other people, destroy their property or maim and kill them like we read about in Chicago and other Democratic inner city bastions.

Our juvenile game of chicken was for two of us to go to opposite ends of the dirt street, mount our bicycles and peddle as fast as possible towards each other. The one who swerved away to avoid a head on collision was declared the “Chicken” and shunned by the other kids watching. Obviously if one did not chicken out you had two banged up bicycles and two kids rewarded with peer esteem and the need for bandages and bike repair. Both usually administered by the other kids.

Wikipedia describes the adult version as being; “Two drivers of cars on a single lane bridge from opposite directions. The first to swerve away yields the bridge to the other. If neither player swerves, the result is a costly deadlock in the middle of the bridge, or a potentially fatal head-on collision. It is presumed that the best thing for each driver is to stay straight while the other swerves (since the other is the “chicken” while a crash is avoided). Additionally, a crash is presumed to be the worst outcome for both players. This yields a situation where each player, in attempting to secure his best outcome, risks the worst.”

We watched President Kennedy win a game of Chicken with the Russians in Cuba and win. We watched Lyndon Johnson lose a game of Chicken with the Vietnamese. Reagan won again over the Russians at the Berlin wall. Bush #1 and #2 believe they won in Iraq. It is a no brainer that Bush #2 and Obama will lose in Afghanistan as political wars are not winnable.   

We are now watching a President who was born and bred to take the game of “CHICKEN” to a new level. He has decided to divide America into two teams and arm one team with a decided advantage. All of the government resources will be provided to one team and the other team will only have God and each other to play the game.

We now have the Blue States on one end of the bridge and the Red States on the other end preparing for a for a Civil war version of the Chicken game. Leaders Obama, Polosi and Reed for the Blue States and Boehner and Mitchell representing only some of the Red States. 

Obama has proved that he can rally 95% of the African-Americans, 98% of the academic leaders, 100% of the dead, and a majority of women and illegal aliens into a fighting force as he won re-election. Fraud could have helped but as he controls the Justice Department and we will never know.

The Red State team is not well-organized and proved that during the last election

One thing in this game of Chicken that is different is who will be hurt the most when we have a head on collision that must happen someday. America will obviously lose this game of Chicken as no other country is involved. There can’t be a winner, as regardless of the outcome, we will be much weaker both militarily and financially.

The real losers will be the youth, the women and the aliens. The dead have nothing to lose and the politicians will eventually be reduced in rank to just ordinary Americans like they were in the past.

God help the young Americans, some unborn, in finding a way to pay for this political ego trip that is so totally avoidable if we just had leaders in Washington rather that con men. God bless Ronald Reagan, our last American Leader. I feel pretty sure that Reagan and Mickey Mouse’s vote in California last November were for Obama.

I certainly hope that the voters, who wanted to see this “Chicken Train Wreck” happen, will be happy working for the Chinese. Unless common sense is applied soon, they will own all of our assets eventually.

OBAMA’S WAR -PART TWO

One of my friends, Ron Jenkins, neighbors sent this to him. It was deeply motivated to post this message. C Brewer

It is compelling and bodes not well for our President in November’s election, at least not amongst a certain segment of the population.  And, no, he doesn’t purport to speak for all military services or retiree’s; no one could or should do that.   

The following was written by one of my former students. When I knew him, he was sixteen years old. I lost track of him when I left Virginia in 1966, but I never forgot him, and I always wondered if his name was on that black, granite wall in Washington, DC.  I found him a couple of years ago, thanks to Face Book and when we reconnected, he told me about his service in Vietnam and about all the boys I had taught, who came home in body bags.

This is not something that has been forwarded over and over but something that Bob wrote on the afternoon of Sept 14th.  He comes from a long line of military men who served their country and were proud to do so. Now his son is scheduled to go to Afghanistan in a few months. His niece will leave in a few weeks. I promised him I would forward it. I owe him and all those other kids, that much. It’s the least I can do.             

He writes:

More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before.

Thirty have died in August.

The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-mast for some of the local Sihks that were killed by the Taliban insurgents. 

There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president. It has taken on a dangerous tone.

No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war.

Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform.

But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president. Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members.

This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond. The million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls.

It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this man who just lets our soldiers die.  

Thanks Ron

MARXISM

 

I read an interesting article on Townhall.com yesterday that had a topic I felt needed to be included in my series on Socialism.

Remember I wrote about Karl Marx’s contribution to Socialism and included how he was largely responsible for Russia ending up as a Communist nation. The article was written by Mike Adams and I will credit him with direct quotes and repeat some of his facts.

This will hopefully influence your perception of what Obama and the Progressive’s of both major political parties have been preparing for over 100 years. Progressives are usually non-violent, domestically, as you will see later. They want power and your money.

Mike stated, “There are more Marxists teaching in Sociology Departments in America than living in the former Soviet Union. These sociologists hold themselves out as scientists despite the fact that they fail consistently in their efforts to predict the future. In fact, most of them lack the competence to accurately predict the past.” He identifies that among the least competent and most intellectually dishonest is Gary L. Faulkner, Professor Emeritus from the University of North Carolina.

Faulkner recently claimed that Marx predicted the events we are seeing in the Occupy Wall Street movement. He also claimed that events from the 20th Century bolster the credibility of Marx as both an economist and political prophet. He further castigates Republicans for their refusal to embrace Marxism. Faulkner states, “There is something really ironic about Republican’s hatred of Marxism. Years ago Marx predicted capitalism would collapse. The reason – workers would rebel.”

That prediction came true when we watched rebellions in China, Russia, North Korea, Cambodia, Afghanistan, and Vietnam. These resulted in Marxist governments that killed nearly 100 million citizens. “Marx was a violent man who unleashed racist and anti-Semitic assaults on anyone who dared to oppose the use of violence as a means of creating change.”

“Marx would have carried out violence on a larger scale. But his poor physical condition prevented him from doing so. That left the work to followers such as Lenin, Stalin, and Mao. His heavy smoking and drinking zapped his energy. His refusal to bathe – a trait also shared by Mao – resulted in boils all over his body. They brought on nervous collapse and fits of rage – both of which would have prevented him from working and earning his own living had he decided to do so.”

Marx had a passionate hatred of capitalism because he was simply unable to handle money and to organize his own financial affairs. His inability to stay out of debt explains why his theory of capital is so deeply rooted in anti-Semitism. It also explains why he stole many of his most deeply anti-Semitic passages from Martin Luther.

“Although he wrote about the need for revolution, Marx had a strange hatred for those who came from the revolutionary class. His son-in-law Paul Lafargue was from Cuba and had some black blood. He tried to keep his daughter from marrying him and later resented him for refusing to honor his wishes.” Consequently, Marx referred to him as “Negrillo” and “the Gorilla.” Would he have loved Obama?

Marx considered both work and the worker to be beneath him. He lived nearly his entire adult life off of handouts from Engels, the co-author of The Communist Manifesto.

“Marx understood that there would always be men incapable of taking care of themselves. He understood that they would resort to violence whenever they did not get what they wanted. He also understood that there would always be academics who admired gross incompetence and the propensity towards violence.”

I can quickly identify American leaders who share Marx’s beliefs and our current Attorney General is a prime one. How many of our current leaders can you identify as Marxist? Send me your list to compare with mine.

FREEDOM- A “RIGHT” ALL AMERICANS SHOULD UNDERSTAND

I received the following message from a friend and decided to post it on my blog. It would be nice if everyone that reads this would pass it on to every American alive. I lost my only brother as a result of this war. I wish that he and all of the other American military who suffered the anguish and humiliation during this sad period in our history could see that we did accomplish something wonderful. It would be nice to see all Americans understand what freedom really means and the suffering it takes to protect our way of life. Unfortunately the leadership in America today is slowly destroying the dreams of those who created the most successful Republic in all of mans history.  C Brewer

 

HOW ONE IMMIGRANT APPRECIATES AMERICA

Last year the town of Prescott Valley, AZ, hosted a Freedom Rally. Quang Nguyen was asked to speak on his experience of coming to America and what it means.  He spoke the following in dedication to all Vietnam Veterans. Most will enjoy what he had to say.

 

SPEECH

“35 years ago, if you were to tell me that I am going to stand up here speaking to a couple thousand patriots, in English, I’d laugh at you.  Man, every morning I wake up thanking God for putting me and my family in the greatest country on earth….. America.

I just want you all to know that the American dream does exist and I am living the American dream.  I was asked to speak to you about my experience as a first generation Vietnamese- American, but I’d rather speak to you as an American.

If you hadn’t noticed, I am not white and I feel pretty comfortable with my people.

I am a proud US citizen and here is my proof:  It took me 8 years to get it, waiting in endless lines, but I got it and I am very proud of it.

I still remember the images of the Tet offensive in 1968, I was six years old.  Now you might want to question how a 6-year-old boy could remember anything.  Trust me, those images can never be erased.  I can’t even imagine what it was like for young American soldiers, 10,000 miles away from home, fighting on my behalf.

35 years ago, I left South Vietnam for political asylum.  The war had ended.  At the age of 13, I left with the understanding that I may or may not ever get to see my siblings or parents again.  I was one of the first lucky 100,000 Vietnamese allowed to come to the US.  Somehow, my family and I were reunited 5 months later, amazingly, in California.  It was a miracle from God.

If you haven’t heard lately that this is the greatest country on earth, I am telling you that right now.  It was the freedom and the opportunities presented to me that put me here with all of you tonight.  I also remember the barriers that I had to overcome every step of the way.  My high school counselor told me that I cannot make it to college due to my poor communication skills.  I proved him wrong.  I finished college.  You see, all you have to do is to give this little boy an opportunity and encourage him to take and run with it.  Well, I took the opportunity and here I am.

This person standing tonight in front of you could not exist under a socialist/communist environment.  By the way, if you think socialism is the way to go, I am sure many people here will chip in to get you a one-way ticket out of here.  And if you didn’t know, the only difference between socialism and communism is an AK-47 aimed at your head.  That was my experience.

In 1982, I stood with a thousand new immigrants, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and listening to the National Anthem for the first time as an American.  To this day, I can’t remember anything sweeter and more patriotic than that moment in my life.

Fast forwarding, somehow I finished high school, finished college, and like any other goofball 21 year old kid, I was having a great time with my life.  I had a nice job and a nice apartment in Southern California.  In someway and somehow, I had forgotten how I got here and why I was here.

One day I was at a gas station, I saw a veteran pumping gas on the other side of the island.  I don’t know what made me do it, but I walked over and asked if he had served in Vietnam.  He smiled and said yes.  I shook and held his hand.  The grown man began to well up.  I walked away as fast as I could and at that very moment, I was emotionally rocked.  This was a profound moment in my life.  I knew something had to change in my life.  It was time for me to learn how to be a good citizen.  It was time for me to give back.

You see, America is not a place on the map.  It isn’t a physical location.  It is an ideal, a concept.  And if you are an American, you must understand the concept, you must buy into this concept, and most importantly, you have to fight and defend this concept.  This is about Freedom and NOT free stuff.  And that is why I am standing up here.

Brothers and sisters, to be a real American, the very least you must do is to learn English and understand it well.  In my humble opinion, you cannot be a faithful patriotic citizen if you can’t speak the language of the country you live in.  Take this document of 46 pages – last I looked on the Internet, there wasn’t a Vietnamese translation of the US Constitution. It took me a long time to get to the point of being able to converse and until this day, I still struggle to come up with the right words.  It’s not easy, but if it’s too easy, it’s not worth doing.

Before I knew this 46-page document, I learned of the 500,000 Americans who fought for this little boy.  I learned of the 58,000 names inscribed on the black wall at the Vietnam Memorial.  You are my heroes.  You are my founders.

At this time, I would like to ask all the Vietnam veterans to please stand.  I thank you for my life.  I thank you for your sacrifices, and I thank you for giving me the freedom and liberty I have today.  I now ask all veterans, firefighters, and police officers, to please stand.  On behalf of all first generation immigrants, I thank you for your services and may God bless you all”.

 

QUANG NGUYEN

Please take note he never used the term Vietnamese American. If all other naturalized citizens would just become “Americans” the resentment would subside. If they continue to demand that we change our history and our way of life we will never have harmony. If they can’t adjust then why did they come other than to overthrow our government?    C. Brewer
