France 24 TV "the Mormon candidate Romney" | America Please Wake Up
Well, in Europe I heard Mitt Romney described twice today on France 24 as "the Mormon candidate Romney".
Can you imagine them describing Joe Lieberman in a prior election as "the Jew Lieberman"?
There is terrible sickness in the air.
I think Ronald Reagan had the answer which he spelt out clearly in 1964:
You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down.
Here: Ronald Reagan's words of wisdom in full:
Given as a stump speech, at speaking engagements, and on a memorable night in 1964 in support of Barry Goldwater's presidential campaign. This version is from that broadcast.
I am going to talk of controversial things. I make no apology for this.
It's time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. James Madison said, "We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self government."
This idea -- that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power -- is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man's relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.
You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream--the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order -- or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, "The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits."
The Founding Fathers knew a government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.
Public servants say, always with the best of intentions, "What greater service we could render if only we had a little more money and a little more power." But the truth is that outside of its legitimate function, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector.
Yet any time you and I question the schemes of the do-gooders, we're denounced as being opposed to their humanitarian goals. It seems impossible to legitimately debate their solutions with the assumption that all of us share the desire to help the less fortunate. They tell us we're always "against," never "for" anything.
We are for a provision that destitution should not follow unemployment by reason of old age, and to that end we have accepted Social Security as a step toward meeting the problem. However, we are against those entrusted with this program when they practice deception regarding its fiscal shortcomings, when they charge that any criticism of the program means that we want to end payments....
We are for aiding our allies by sharing our material blessings with nations which share our fundamental beliefs, but we are against doling out money government to government, creating bureaucracy, if not socialism, all over the world.
We need true tax reform that will at least make a start toward restoring for our children the American Dream that wealth is denied to no one, that each individual has the right to fly as high as his strength and ability will take him.... But we cannot have such reform while our tax policy is engineered by people who view the tax as a means of achieving changes in our social structure....
Have we the courage and the will to face up to the immorality and discrimination of the progressive tax, and demand a return to traditional proportionate taxation? . . . Today in our country the tax collector's share is 37 cents of every dollar earned. Freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp.
Are you willing to spend time studying the issues, making yourself aware, and then conveying that information to family and friends? Will you resist the temptation to get a government handout for your community? Realize that the doctor's fight against socialized medicine is your fight. We can't socialize the doctors without socializing the patients. Recognize that government invasion of public power is eventually an assault upon your own business. If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he'll eat you last.
If all of this seems like a great deal of trouble, think what's at stake. We are faced with the most evil enemy mankind has known in his long climb from the swamp to the stars. There can be no security anywhere in the free world if there is no fiscal and economic stability within the United States. Those who ask us to trade our freedom for the soup kitchen of the welfare state are architects of a policy of accommodation.
They say the world has become too complex for simple answers. They are wrong. There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right. Winston Churchill said that "the destiny of man is not measured by material computation. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we are spirits--not animals." And he said, "There is something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty."
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.
With what is going on in Europe with the Islamic invasion (Al-Hijra
) in full swing and the awful reality of Eurabia
becoming more and more apparent each day something absolutely enormous is going to have to happen to avoid the "sentence" Ronald Reagan spoke of "into a thousand years of darkness."
This is what Bat Ye'or wrote in her book Eurabia:
This book describes Europe’s evolution from a Judeo-Christian civilization, with important post-Enlightenment secular elements, into a post-Judeo-Christian civilization that is subservient to the ideology of jihad and the Islamic powers that propagate it. The new European civilization in the making can be called a “civilization of dhimmitude.” The term dhimmitude comes from the Arabic word “dhimmi”. It refers to subjugated, non-Muslim individuals or people that accept the restrictive and humiliating subordination to an ascendant Islamic power to avoid enslavement or death.1 The entire Muslim world as we know it today is a product of this 1,300 year-old jihad dynamic, whereby once thriving non-Muslim majority civilizations have been reduced to a state of dysfunctional dhimmitude. Many have been completely Islamized and have disappeared. Others remain as fossilized relics of the past, unable to evolve.
Eurabia by Bat Ye’or The Euro-Arab Axis by Bat Ye’or p. 9.

The same thing is happening in the United States.
The problems in the economy in the US will look like a short picnic if those in charge in the United States don't
Anyway I would say a great contributor to the economic problems worldwide is Islam with the massive cost of all the wars, all the security, all the devastation, havoc and, oh yes, the cost of oil.
Yes what about the price of oil?
Is that caused by "speculators"?
Hmm. Where have I heard that sort of talk before. Karl Marx, Hitler?
Actually what about the little matter of the oil cartel OPEC?
Is that not a primarily Islamic organisation?
Are price fixing cartels not illegal in the United States?
Enforcing the law would be one of the "simple answers" that a Ronald Reagan would apply straight away perhaps?
Break up the cartel.
BREAK OPEC UP. It is illegal. It is waiting to be dealt with. Please do it.
And what about the fact that a good portion of the illegal gains from the price fixing is going towards the jihad to
overthrow "non-Muslim" (what a concept) governments over all over the world including the government of the United States.
It is time for the leaders of the US to wake up.
Freedom is disappearing in Europe.
The EU is becoming more and more dictatorial each day. I think the problem is that there is something wrong with the spirit.
Is the EU playing at being God?
I think so.
From Kleinverzet in the Netherlands:
The God-given rights revealed in the Judaeo-Christian scriptures and developed under the Anglo-American Enlightenment tradition of Natural Law have been usurped by a European Union Napoleonic system in which the state has become the ultimate arbiter of what privileges (‘rights’) are permitted and what liberties are protected. The state has been made omnipotent and has become both judge and jury, responsible for prosecution and punishment. And anyone who presumes to oppose any of this is labeled ‘extremist’ or ‘xenophobic’, and may now be subject to ‘limitations’ which meet the ‘objectives...recognised by the Union’.
The EU is well on it's way to Eurabia and to submission to Islam.
A sobering extract from the Conclusion of my heroine Bat Ye'or in her latest latest book, a work of great insight and care and knowledge and massive research, a work written with love, love of life, love of truth and justice and love of people, of all people:
While writing this study I was reminded of a question that greatly troubled me twenty-five years ago when researching “Les Chretientes d’Orient entre jihad and dhimmitude” (1991). How did Christian peoples and states, some with powerful armies and the richest cultures of their times, collapse when faced with the onslaught of jihad and dhimmitude from the seventh to the fifteenth centuries? Now I no longer ask myself this question. The breakdown process that I used to study and documented in old chronicles I have seen taking place in today’s Europe. When I examined the past I saw it repeated in the present, under my very eyes. Indeed, the present situation is reminiscent of the one that followed the Muslim conquests. Keeping Christian officials in their positions maintained a semblance of continuity. Behind their foggy screen, Islamization could penetrate within every stratum of the vanquished societies. However, with time, the collapse of this edifice revealed the true role of these ministers, whose job was to enforce upon their people the caliphate’s orders, under pain of death. I was missing one essential link in the chain of events: the motivations of human beings that lead them in an unswerving direction within the chaos of events, the undeviating route toward an ultimate objective. Now this link is revealed in the mix of fears, cowardice, corruption, hatred and short-term ambitions that within the space of forty years have led Europe along the road to Eurabia, an interim stage in an even more profound change.
See a review of Bat Ye'or's book by Jerry Gordon's New English Review here.
What Bat Ye'or wrote above brought to my mind what Winston Churchill wrote in 1941.
Bat Ye'or was trying to figure how so many Christian peoples and states collapsed when faced with the onslaught of jihad.
Now she no longer wonders because she sees it happening before her eyes.
Compare what Winston Churchill said in a broadcast from London to the United States in the dark days of June 16, 1941.
The great Burke has truly said, "People will not look forward to posterity who never look backward to their ancestors," ….
Wickedness, enormous, panoplied, embattled, seemingly triumphant, casts its shadow over Europe and Asia. Laws, customs and traditions are broken up. Justice is cast from her seat. The rights of the weak are trampled down. The grand freedoms of which the President of the United States has spoken so movingly are spurned and chained. The whole stature of man, his genius, his initiative and his nobility, is ground down under systems of mechanical barbarism and of organized and scheduled terror.
For more than a year we British have stood alone, uplifted by your sympathy and respect and sustained by our own unconquerable will-power and by the increasing growth and hopes of your massive aid. In these British Islands that look so small upon the map we stand, the faithful guardians of the rights and dearest hopes of a dozen States and nations now gripped and tormented in a base and cruel servitude. Whatever happens we shall endure to the end.
But what is the explanation of the enslavement of Europe by the German Nazi regime? How did they do it? It is but a few years ago since one united gesture by the peoples, great and small, who are now broken in the dust, would have warded off from mankind the fearful ordeal it has had to undergo. But there was no unity. There was no vision. The nations were pulled down one by one while the others gaped and chattered. One by one, each in his turn, they let themselves be caught. One after another they were felled by brutal violence or poisoned from within by subtle intrigue.
And now the old lion with her lion cubs at her side stands alone against hunters who are armed with deadly weapons and impelled by desperate and destructive rage. Is the tragedy to repeat itself once more? All no! This is not the end of the tale. The stars in their courses proclaim the deliverance of mankind. Not so easily shall the onward progress of the peoples be barred. Not so easily shall the lights of freedom die. But time is short. Every month that passes adds to the length and to the perils of the journey that will have to be made. United we stand. Divided we fall. Divided, the dark age returns. United, we can save and guide the world!
The Old Lion is sinking deeper and deeper into dhimmitude, into submission and defeat.
Europe is well on it's way to a multicultural hell that will not in fact be multicultural at all but will be a New Europe of slavery, dhimmitudinal apartheid and horror.
Winston Churchill warned about Islam. Here is what he wrote about what could happen to a Europe facing a resurgent Islam -
"and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."
America please. Please, Please, Please. It is time to wake up.

The French. I understand in this day and age people from all across the globe will chime in, on among other thimgs, American Presidential candidates. However for France to chime in on ones religion seems almost laughable. As I understand it the French are strict on public display of things religious, at least for Christians and Jews. The joke of course is that Islam does what it pleases and the French are incapable of doing anything about it.
I think France will fall to Islam, perhaps as early as 2040 give or take 5 years.
The only Frenchman with a genuine pair, IMHO, is Bridget Bardot.
Ronald Wilson Reagan and Sir Winston Churchill, now there is a pair I can respect.
Our modern world needs a personality likes theirs, tailor cut from the same cloth, suited to our current problems and hopefully before it is to late.
These men were mature adult personalities, and in our modern world that translates as conservative. I`m not so sure Mitt can measure up, but I believe he will try and I know he is on the right page.
The other side of course is Barac Hussein Obama. Anti American, anti capitalist, anti American military, pro socialist, pro socialist globalist, and pro Islamic Messiah.
Americas glided age was coined I believe, by Mark Twain. It refers to the capitalist of the time who made a fortune then tried to buy respect. In general it reflects the concept of something subpar, gilded in gold and therefore appearing to be of great value.
Americas liberal minded and democrat political party members see Barac as the golden boy but in reality he is just the gilded boy, a gold plated troll not fit to serve as garbageman.
If you love America, vote republican.
If you hate America, vote democrat.
One and done. Nobama 2012, vote republican. Thank you.
