The Left Wing propaganda organs and Democrat “leadership” will not accept much of anything that President Donald Trump has to say these days - even if it is offering his condolences over the horrors in Virginia this past weekend. It actually goes beyond mere hype that erupts from one political party after losing a hard fought election. It is much more and it becomes very old after so much has been lobbed against the duly-elected president. The more obvious of ridiculous attacks came after Trump’s strong words to North Korea’s Communist dictator, Kim Jong-un.
Former Secretary of Defense in the Obama Administration, Leon Panetta, has been weighing in on Trump’s stance, and although he had some intelligent remarks on the North Korean situation, Panetta took the low road: “The question is: “Does [Trump] get so frustrated with the North Korean leader — who’s yelling every other day — that he feels that somehow the North Korean leader is attacking his manhood?”
A more intelligent question would be directed to the relevance of such a question from a former secretary of defense who was supposedly once concerned about protecting the citizens of the United States from ruthless madmen? It may be irrelevant, as this was the same Secretary of Defense Panetta who defended the Obama administration’s response to the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, IT expert Sean Smith, and the former U.S. Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Was manhood an issue in the administration’s response to that obvious debacle? Not only is Panetta’s question irrelevant, he appears irrelevant.
Other more revealing statements emerged from supposedly intelligent political figures. More astounding statements regarding Trump’s words of warning came from former Green Party presidential candidate, Jill Stein, in an interview that aired on MSNBC in which she seemed to be a spokesperson representing the North Korean government. Stein explained, “In particular, what North Korea has a problem with are these war exercises, which are basically bombing runs. They are mock nuclear attacks, first strike nuclear attacks, which are being rehearsed by South Korea and the United States.”
Ironically, Stein may not have been aware that the initiation of bombing runs over North Korea commenced in 2013 under Leon Panetta’s old boss, former President Barack Obama. However, the other woman who ran for president believed that negotiations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) would be the more intelligent way of dealing with a deranged dictator. And Panetta’s other old boss, former President Bill Clinton, would probably agree with her since he paid the DPRK loads of money to negotiate the DPRK away from a desire to build nuclear weapons.
What is lost on the Left and the current crop of liberal, socialist-leaning Democrats is that they have lost touch with the true roots of America and they appear to be drifting farther and farther to the Left - as is the case with Jill Stein who started out a Democrat, and now seems to be auditioning for spokeswoman for the DPRK. Not only are such politicians losing touch with mainstream America, they have lost the legacy from stronger past presidents from their own party. American citizens are finally awakening to the reality that the “Democratic” Party of today resembles little of the party of Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy.
In fact, if one looks at President Harry Truman’s response to the first North Korean dictator’s actions against their South Korean neighbors, a person with common sense can begin to see that the current Democrat reaction to Trump’s words is fabricated fear mongering. On June 25, 1950, Kim Il Sung (grandfather of Kim Jong-un) and the DPRK launched a surprise invasion of South Korea. This was with the blessings of Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union.
On that Sunday in 1950, President Harry Truman broke off his visit to his home in Independence, Missouri, and flew from Kansas City back to Washington, D.C., to face another tough decision. Not many in the West foresaw the unprovoked invasion, and most were stunned as the North Korean military thrust across the artificially imposed demarcation boundary of the Korean peninsula. The world basically watched as North Korean forces swarmed into South Korea in an attempt to “re-unify” Korea and establish another communist utopia.
In the wake of the attack, the United Nations held an emergency session, and on June 27, 1950, unanimously condemned the North Korean invasion of South Korea, and passed Resolution 82, which requested troops from member nations to assist the Republic of Korea in defending its freedom.This resolution of armed action has been utilized only two other times in the history of the United Nations. All other global crises sadly went unattended since the Soviets or the People’s Republic of China used their veto power to deny unanimous consent to take corrective action.
Most Americans should know from a simplistic perusal of history that President Harry Truman stood up to the Soviet Communist regime of Joseph Stalin when he committed U.S. troops to the war fought over the control of the Korean peninsula.
An incredibly serious question needs to be asked with regard to America here and now: Would Elitists, Leftists, Socialists, and Marxists, who are part of the Trump resistance, desire to have the U.S. wait until the most recent heir of the Communist regime in North Korea follows in his grandfather’s footsteps and commits an unprovoked attack against the Free World? The answer to that question would in all likelihood be a “yes.” This is primarily because the resistance to Trump is a resistance to fundamental American values, which are under direct assault right here, right now.
Another question to be asked would be more personal: Would the average citizen of the world desire to have the U.S. wait until the most recent heir of the Communist regime in North Korea follows in his grandfather’s footsteps and commits an insidious, unprovoked attack against the Free World? It is likely that the answer to that question would be “no!” Yet, Americans today seem to want to be told what to think by the MSM, or to wait to be told by the MSM the “politically correct” way to view current events. What happened to fundamental common sense?
Today, when Trump issues strong words against the North Korean dictator, he is indicating to the world that he is not afraid of defending the Free World from those who would support the DPRK Communist regime. The Clinton effort at dollar diplomacy did not work in stopping the DPRK from developing nuclear weapons that could reach innocent people in many cities around the world. So, should the United States stand by while a puppet dictator threatens to attack and kill innocent civilians? If it were possible for Americans to go back in time, and redo September 11, 2001, wouldn’t they? Then, there was no warning, just as there was no warning on June 25, 1950.
At least now intent has been voiced, and such fear mongering has met with strong words from the American president. An indication of a willingness to attack the West was clear intent to manifest fear in innocent civilians in many parts of the world. How different is this from the clamoring of terrorists committed to destroy the West?
It may be hard to believe that Democrats today have such difficulty with Trump’s strong words when one of their own, not long ago, issued his own strong words of willingness to defend the Free World. Yet, the “Democratic” Party of John F. Kennedy no longer exists. This is clear when one reads Kennedy’s words from his inaugural address. His message shows just how different Kennedy was from the Democrats of today:
The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe – the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.
We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans, born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty…
Kennedy’s words are much more of a polished politician, and Tump will have a hard time becoming as eloquent as Kennedy, but as terse and as blunt as his words are, Trump is expressing the same spirit. Trump’s words are intended to stop a dictator - not ignite him. The media, on the other hand know all too well how to ignite chaos. Citizens need to come to grips with the reality that Trump follows in the footsteps of strong presidents from America’s past.
