Ike’s D-Day Letter to the Troops, June 6, 1944

-By Warner Todd Huston

With all the weakling college students whining about “safe spaces” today, it is incumbent upon us to remember that there were no safe spaces on the beaches of Normandy.

As the troops prepared to shove off, many for their final act, commander in chief Dwight Eisenhower distributed a letter to buck up the spirit of the troops and to remind them of how important their efforts was.

Here is that letter (double click to see the letter full size):

D-Day Anniversary: For Remembering D-Day With Ike and Reagan

-By Paul Kengor

For me, Memorial Day happens twice within a week. The first, the official holiday at the end of May, is quickly reinforced a week later, every June 6: D-Day.

Of all the wartime anniversaries, none strike me quite like D-Day–the invasion of Normandy, the liberation of France, the final push to defeat Nazi Germany. It was June 6, 1944, a date that sticks like December 7, like July 4, like September 11. The mix of extreme sorrow and triumph has been unforgettably replicated on film by Steven Spielberg in the stunning opening of Saving Private Ryan.

What must it have been like to be among those first waves at the beaches? Indescribable, simply indescribable.

Time to Remember The Many Americans Buried in U.S. Military Cemeteries Across the World

Time to Remember The Many Americans Buried in U.S. Military Cemeteries Across the World

-By Warner Todd Huston

“From these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion.”–Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address

As we prepare to celebrate Memorial Day to pause in thanks for the sacrifices made by millions of Americans who died while fighting to preserve freedom, a documentary called “These Hallowed Grounds” reminds us that our war dead are not just interred here at home, but are spread across the world on battlefields almost lost to the memory of far too many of us.

When we think of our military cemeteries, those final resting places of so many American heroes, we usually think of Arlington National Cemetery, certainly. But do we think of the hundreds of American military cemeteries in such places as France, the Philippines, and other nations across the world? Sadly, not many of us do.

If you are like many of us, you may not be very well informed about all the many American cemeteries erected to memorialize our legions of war dead. To correct that deficit the PBS documentary “These Hallowed Grounds” is an excellent way to learn about these bucolic and solemn memorials.

Most Americans know of the World War Two cemetery at Omaha Beach, Normandy, site of one of the 1944 D-Day landings. But there are some twenty-one other cemeteries in eight other countries memorializing our dead from World Wars One and Two and the documentary tells the powerful tale of many of them.

Our many war cemeteries are maintained by the U.S. government’s American Battle Monuments Commission and contain monuments to some 125,000 American war dead. The names of another 94,000 missing soldiers are inscribed into the Walls Of The Missing at these locations and this film takes viewers on an important journey across the world to see and learn about them.

Shift in U.S. Against WWII A-Bombing of Japan is a VERY Bad Sign

Shift in U.S. Against WWII A-Bombing of Japan is a VERY Bad Sign

-By Warner Todd Huston

On the even of Memorial Day when we take a moment in our busy lives to remember the sacrifice made by millions of soldiers who lost their lives in war since our nation was founded, President Obama went on another apology tour, this time to grovel in front of the Japanese in abject despair for dropping the atomic bomb on them during WWII. Sadly, too many Americans are just as foolish as he if the results of a new poll are any indication. It is all proof that the U.S. is losing its grip on reality.

Before I get too much farther into this business, let me just say to Japan that I am not sorry we destroyed two of your major cities with the A-Bomb. I don’t have even a tiny bit of sympathy for Japan’s loss. They started the war, they murdered and enslaved millions (not hyperbole), they attacked us, and even as their forces were clearly beaten they refused to surrender which would have necessitated perhaps a million more casualties should the U.S. have had to invade to pacify them. They even refused to surrender after we wiped out Hiroshima with a single bomb forcing us to do it again at Nagasaki.

Actions have consequences and Japan’s actions led to what they deserved. Period.

Unfortunately, today too many Americans are starting to regret the A-Bombing of Japan, the bombing that saved the lives of so many Americans and Japanese both. A new poll finds a bare one percent more Americans now disapprove of the bombing than approve.

A new CBS News poll found only 43 percent of Americans still approve of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki while 44 percent disapprove. This year’s result compares to 53 percent approving of the bombing in 1990 with 41 percent disapproving.

This is a travesty created by our failed miseducation system.

The Emptiness of Obama’s Foreign Policy, He’s WORSE Than Neville Chamberlain

The Emptiness of Obama’s Foreign Policy, He’s WORSE Than Neville Chamberlain

-By Warner Todd Huston

There is one expertly crafted sentence in news coverage of Obama’s witless “negotiations” with Iran over its nuclear ambitions that explains perfectly Obama’s total fecklessness in foreign relations.

Reuters reported this amazingly nonsensical *paragraph:

Negotiators have a tentative agreement on the rough outline of a possible public statement on the progress they have made so far that would also highlight areas of disagreement, diplomats close to the talks said.

Notice what this paragraph says. It is reporting that negotiators have agreed on a “rough outline” of what is only “a possible statement” on supposed “progress” but will also “highlight” the “disagreements” they have with one another.

In other words, they have a statement coming on nothing.

This is the epitome of Obama foreign policy.

Candidates for Woman on the $20 Bill Features Man hater, Mass Murderer and Advocate for Genocide of Blacks

-By Warner Todd Huston

There is a new campaign afoot that is tickling the interests of the mainstream media. It is an effort to kick President Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace him with a woman. Sadly at least three of the candidates do not belong on the list. One is a famous hater of men, another can only be termed a mass murderer, and the third was an important supporter of the genocide of African Americans. How is it these three women deserve to be celebrated on the $20 bill is anyone’s guess.

The campaign called Women On The 20, is, the group says on its website, is an effort to “compel historic change by convincing President Obama that NOW is the time to put a woman’s face on our paper currency.”

The group hopes to have the change on the money made by the year 2020, which happens to be the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the one that gave women the right to vote.

FDR Invented The ‘Liar-In-Chief’ And Tore Down the Democrat Party And The Country

-By Warner Todd Huston

PBS and documentary maker Ken Burns have done it again with a wonderful look at the political lives of Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt. But if the series did anything it revealed to a discerning viewer how Franklin rebuilt the presidency on a pillar of hate and lies and remade the Democrat Party into a party driven by purposeful misdirection and deceit.

Certainly the series approaches these two consequential presidents as good for the country. Neither were as salubrious for the country as popular opinion holds and both did a lot of damage. To Burns’ credit he does allow conservative commentator George Will to slip in a few digs at how both Teddy and Franklin tore down the presidency and turned our country from a constitutional republic built on a pretty straightforward explication of the political raison d’être of any particular party, candidate or era and into a nation run by sneaky politicians who lie straight-faced to the people and don’t care about the Constitution at all.

Teddy Roosevelt did his bit to end our Constitutional republic, granted, and was followed by Woodrow Wilson who pounded a few more nails into that coffin. But it was Franklin Delano Roosevelt who really destroyed the country.

The truth is, Franklin was an utterly failed president in everything but his leadership in WWII. It has to be acknowledged that his stewardship of the war was great and maybe a lesser president would have left the US more vulnerable. But there is no doubt that he materially hurt this country in every other arena.

His domestic policy was a disaster, his economic policies utterly failed, and his disregard of the rule of law and the US Constitution was a disgusting display of arrogance and hubris. By forcing the world into war, Hitler ended the Great depression, not Franklin Roosevelt.

MSNBC’s Schultz Says Gays ‘Really The Ones Persecuted’ in Nazi Holocaust

-By Warner Todd Huston

Sometimes a celebrity will Tweet something, so blatantly a-historical, something so totally outrageous and insensible, that even they realize how bad it is and will try to delete it right away. But someone will always be there to preserve the evidence.

Well, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz just found out that Twitter is forever when he Tweeted that gays were “really” the ones persecuted during Hitler’s holocaust. Seriously. A guy with a German surname just said that. In public.

The MSNBC host Goodwined himself before anyone else even said a word with a Tweet where he informed the world of who was the “real” target of Hitler’s Final Solution.

“Gay people were really the ones being persecuted in Hitler’s Germany,” Schultz blurted out on his EdShow Twitter feed at ten to 5 PM on May 12.

Schultz accompanied his Tweet with an image of a webpage that reported on the thousands of gays that the Nazis reportedly put to death or otherwise interned in their odious death camps.

VIDEO: German WWII Survivor Says Obama is Hitler’s Political Son

-By Warner Todd Huston

A survivor of Hitler’s murderous WWII era German empire says that Barack Obama is essentially the notorious German madman’s political son, the heir of his political style, if you will.

Austrian Kitty Werthmann (some sites misspell her name as Katie Worthman, for some reason) was a child just before WWII broke out and lived in the failing Austrian empire when her countrymen decided to elect Adolph Hitler as their leader in the 1930s. That’s right, “elected” him. He didn’t conquer them with arms.

Werthmann notes that Hitler got 98 percent of a democratically derived vote when he and his Nazi Party–the National Socialists–promised to bring Austrians the same high standard of living that Germans then enjoyed.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Calls NRA/Beck ‘Nazis,’ Then Accuses Right of Calling People Nazis

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Calls NRA/Beck ‘Nazis,’ Then Accuses Right of Calling People Nazis

-By Warner Todd Huston

During a panel discussion on his May 6 broadcast of Hardball, MSNBC talking head Chris Matthews called Glenn Beck and the NRA “Hitlerian” for their arguments against Obama’s gun-ban plans but only minutes later scolded those same folks for calling people Nazis.

In a discussion of Glenn Beck’s address given on May 4 to members of the National Rifle Association at their convention in Houston, Texas, Matthews said the rhetoric employed there against the gun grabbers on the left was “Hitlerian.”

“This whole idea of righteous indignation, first of all, it’s Hitlerian, generally speaking, demagoguery,” Matthews blurted out. “It’s always about righteous indignation. All great demagogic speakers talk about how they’re coming to get us. That’s how you get people excited.”

Shortly thereafter, Matthews played a few minutes of Glenn Beck’s speech to the attendees of the NRA convention.

Beck said that the “freedom of all mankind is at stake.” He went on to lament that many of his New York friends were all too quick to acquiesce to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s nanny state-like bans on soda, salt, transfats and other things. Beck then showed on the wall screen a satirical new tourism slogan for Bloomberg’s city. In a take off on the old New York slogan “I Love New York,” Beck put an image on the screen that showed Michael Bloomberg in a communist-like pose then satirically intoned that the new slogan should be “You WILL love New York.”

Chris Matthews: Conservatives Are Like Hitler, White Men Want End to Minority Vote

-By Warner Todd Huston

During his November 26 MSNBC circus, Chris Matthews childishly linked conservatives unhappy with the results of the past election to Hitler and the Nazis. Not only that but he claimed that white men and Mitt Romney were really working to return our electoral system to the day when only white men that owned land were allowed to vote.

Before Matthews got to his illogical and disconnected Hitler comparison, Matthews first made the silly claim that one of Mitt Romney’s goals was to return the nation to a day when only landed, white men could vote.

Matthews began discounting the right’s reverence for our founding fathers then went on to disgorge his foolish conspiracy theory.

But the notion that the free men of this country are white men of property and that is really what Romney ran on, white men of property. He didn’t say it intellectually. I don’t think he put it in any words. But look who he was rallying to as, you know, as, as, Howie just pointed out, that seemed to be the rallying cry. “Men of property, join together. Defend the wagon train against the onslaught of the others!” That seemed to be what they were doing in this campaign.

Ah, so Romney didn’t say this at all and neither did anyone else, but Chrissy knows what they really mean, eh?

-By Warner Todd Huston

ABC News is at it again, misidentifying a mass murder as part of the “right” in America today. And, naturally, it was Brian Ross who did the dirty deed claiming the man responsible for killing several Sikh temple goers in Wisconsin is a member of the “right-wing.”

Ross appeared on ABC on the morning of August 7 to say that shooter Wade Michael Page has “links to these right-wing, neo-Nazi groups.”

The left has succeeded for years linking conservatives and people on the American right to the Nazis by claiming they are all “right-wingers.” But the claim is simply untrue.

It should be remembered that Hitler’s Party was called the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei which in English means the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Yes, that’s right, socialist.

The New American Elite

-By Alan Caruba

The only constant in the life of individuals and nations is change. Since the beginning of the last century, the process or rate of change has accelerated with the invention and availability of a myriad of machines, technologies that have altered the lifestyle of Americans as well as of millions around the world.

Let me put it in personal terms. When I was born in the late 1930s, my Mother washed the family laundry by hand and hung it out to dry on sunny days or in the basement of our home if it was raining. We were not poor. We were middle class. My Father was a Certified Public Accountant and we lived in a spacious suburban home in an upscale New Jersey community. Mass produced washers and dryers would arrive after the end of World War Two.

The differences between lower economic classes, the middle class, and upper classes were well defined back then. All, however, generally held the same values regarding societal institutions such as marriage, religion, national pride. Those values have eroded since the 1960s and Charles Murray, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, whose new book, “Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010” ($27.00, Crown Forum) tells you how and why.

When I think of D-Day, I always think of two presidents, neither of which were president at the time: Dwight “Ike” Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan. What they had to say about the event was profound.

Ike was Supreme Allied Commander during World War II, a long way from humble beginnings as a Kansas farm boy. He gave the final order to send an armada of 5,000 ships, 12,000 aircraft, and 155,000 soldiers — the largest amphibious assault in history. The morning prior, the forecast wasn’t good. Ike asked each of his subordinates what they thought about proceeding…

Evil Confederate, German, Nazi, Racists Invades Mind of The Atlantic Writer

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Atlantic’s Yoni Appelbaum has a troubled little mind. He seems to be an excitable sort, too. I say this because during this 150th anniversary of the American Civil War he strangely sees evil Confederate, German, Nazi, racists at Civil War events. He might want to see a therapist about this. Either that or he’s just another left-wing writer that is striving so hard to find something, anything, to write about that he’s put aside common sense and instead decided to illicitly impute any manner of absurd motivations to Germany’s Civil War reenactors. You know, because he wants to be considered the thoughtful type, because this sort of tripe is what passes for intellectualism in journalism.

Appelbaum’s article on Germans that reenact the American Civil War is entirely absurd, of course. He imputes all sorts of motives, dark and evil, to a mere hobby. He sees shadows of low and dangerous undercurrents to this pastime and desperately tries to tie a plethora of evils into the harmless fun of dressing up as a soldier from some 150 years ago.

Appelbaum finds that many Germans reenact the American Civil War in Germany as Confederate soldiers and this troubles him. He notes that Germans that reenact the American Civil War as Confederates are play-acting contrary to their own pre-WWII cultural history because few Germans fought for the South in the conflict. In this he is correct. But after getting one thing right, Appelbaum launches off into paroxysms of agonized fantasy. One gets the feeling he is not writing to explore truths but is writing to get the knowing and concerned nods of other wacky leftists like himself.

U.S. Rep. Roskam Marches in Wheaton Memorial Day Parade

-By Warner Todd Huston

Memorial Day Parade, Wheaton, Ill– Illinois Congressman Peter Roskam (R, 6th District) walked in the Wheaton Memorial Day Parade to some applause and ended the exercise by speaking to those assembled at the Wheaton Cemetery to commemorate those that have served us in peace and war and those who gave their last full measure so that we could remain the last best hope of the world.

The weather could not have been better as the parade stepped off this morning. The skies were clear and Summer temperatures had finally arrived. As the route rolled on the heat did tend to rise, though. Still, compared to the dismal weather we’ve seen the last few months, this Memorial Day was a welcome respite.

Rep. Roskam had a group of about fifty supporters march with him and I joined them to document the event. As we walked the distance from downtown Wheaton to the Wheaton Cemetery it was obvious that the congressman had many fans along the route. There were surprised smiles and a healthy amount of applause as the congressman and his lovely wife led the contingent.

Just a Reminder of What Sort of Liar Barack Obama Is…

April 10, 2011 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Warner Todd Huston, WWII | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

Remember when Barack Obama told the nation that his father served in WWII? Well, neither his father NOR his step father was old enough to serve in WWII. Obama simply lied. Straight out. Bald faced. Lied.

Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (Obama’s father)
Born: April 4, 1936 Died: November 24, 1982, aged 46.
He was 5 years old when the US entered WW II, and less than 9 1/2 yrs old when it ended.

Lolo Soetoro (Obama’s step father)
Born: January 2, 1935 Died: March 2, 1987, aged 52.
He was 6 years old when the US entered WW II, and 10 years old when it ended.

Now people that are covering for Obama like to claim that he “clearly” meant to be referencing his grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham who did serve in the war. People say that since Dunham helped raise Obama that he might view Dunham as a father figure and that he simply misspoke. He meant grandfather, you see? They also remind us that Obama had an uncle in the war.

To believe this line of reasoning you have to believe that “the smartest man in the world” cannot tell the difference between a grandfather or an uncle and a father and displayed that ignorance in the midst of an important political speech!

Which do you think is more likely? That he did not know the difference between a grandfather and a father? Or that he wanted to sound closer to the “greatest generation,” wanted to score political points, and assumed that no one in the swooning news media would call him on his lie? You decide.

So They Called Him Hitler, So What? Grow Up, The Both of You!

You know, I am about sick to death of this childish back and forth between the unhinged left and the oh-so-outraged right on the name calling issue, especially where it concerns the use of the name of humanity’s most evil villain, Hitler. Yeah, they said (put latest politician here) is Hitler. But so what? Let’s stop the foolish waste of time focusing outrageously, outrageous, outrage over the name calling because not only is it human nature to name call, but it is an age-old American political pastime. A little of it is even cathartic. On the other hand if you happen to be the one using Hitler all the time, stop it, you dipwad. Quit the name calling, you creep. Yes, do read on my morons and let’s hash this out, shall we?

It is a simple, historical fact that Americans have been using the most vile names they could think of with which to label their political opponent. No, we haven’t been calling each other Hitler since the founding and only a gutwrenchingly stupid level of moron would think that. Yet I know that at least a percentage of you reading this were thinking just that, intending to use it to show I am an idiot myself. The fact is that each era has had it’s own version of the worst person in the world award, to be sure, and each era has had no less than one slobberingly absurd Olbermannesque person doing the awarding.

In the early founding those that were targeted for attack were called monarchists. That may seem mild now, but it was a particularly un-American name then since we had just split from a monarchy through a difficult 7-year war. If it were religion that was the target subject, the worst that an American could be called in the early days was a “Papist” as Catholicism was considered an evil not much better than a monarchist. Remember, both monarchy and Catholicism were mass murderers at that time. Later if a southerner was called a Yankee, why them was fightin’ words… literally as it turned out. Then there are the hardy, low and vile racial epithets we are all so familiar with. God forbid anyone was called an Irishman after the 1820s and we all know about our long, sad history with the black man in America.

The point I am making is that this “Hitler” thing is nothing new. You can pick any era in American history, any era, and you’ll find movements using the worst rhetoric with which to depict their opponents in order to put them in the worst light possible. There’s truly nothing new under the sun. Only the names have been changed to diminish the truth!
