Memorial Day, the door into summer, is a moment for pausing to remember what is truly important … including the heroic sacrifices of patriots who defended America against all enemies, foreign and domestic. In this sacred week, we should connect the dots to recognize the ongoing struggle to protect and preserve our liberty.
Richard Nixon was the first Republican president attacked by the Deep State as Donald Trump is now. Leftists hated Nixon because of his successes as an anti-Communist. He was brought down by Watergate, Nixon’s effort to bug Democratic National Committee telephones to prove that prominent Democrats were secretly colluding with the Soviet Union and Communist Cuba.
The duo credited with bringing Nixon down were two reporters for the liberal Washington Post, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, both of whom nowadays appear on the leftist channels CNN and MSNBC to attack President Trump.
Bernstein, in his 1989 book “Loyalties: A Son’s Memoir,” reveals that his parents were among “thousands” of Communist Party members or radical leftist fellow travelers who flooded into the Washington, D.C., bureaucracy of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. Bernstein was a “red diaper baby” raised on the toxic milk of hard left anti-American ideology.
President Barack Obama was the same. His leftist radical parents met in a Russian class at the University of Hawaii. Barack’s formative years were shaped by mentor Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA member and writer.
Obama is about to publish his own memoirs, but is apparently so worried about his wife’s success as an author that last week he said Michelle “had a ghost writer.” Ironically, Barack’s own first two books were apparently written by Bill Ayres, a New Left Weatherman terrorist but skillful writer in whose apartment Barack launched his own first political campaign. In “Dreams of my Father,” Barack described seeking out “Marxist professors” in college. His administration welcomed fellow red-diaper babies, from David Axelrod to Valerie Jarrett.
Obama appears to have been deeply involved in weaponizing government agencies to wiretap and spy on Donald Trump in a “Trumpgate” attempted coup d’état. He met in the Oval Office with his FBI Director James Comey, accomplice in the scheme Vice President Joe Biden, and others the day before Comey was to set Trump up by telling him a lurid tale in what is now known as the Trump dossier. Comey never told Trump that this dossier had been funded, in collusion with Russian intelligence agents, by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee. After meeting with Trump, Comey reportedly called Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan and told him, “Mission accomplished.”
Facing a lie detector test as a young job applicant, Brennan had admitted voting for Gus Hall, the presidential candidate of the Communist Party USA; because he admitted this, Brennan was hired. We now know from a 2003 interview he gave to New York magazine that James Comey “was left of center” but by the late 1970s had “moved from Communist to whatever I am now. I’m not even sure how to characterize myself politically. Maybe at some point, I’ll have to figure it out.”
President Obama thus chose one-time former Communist radicals to head America’s two top intelligence agencies. The left-liberal media dismisses, even praises, this by calling Brennan and Comey “youthful idealists.” Ask yourself if the media would say the same about national, not international, socialist radicals who as young adults paraded in Nazi uniforms adorned with swastikas.
Both philosophies are monstrous anti-American evils that caused tens of millions of deaths – but Communism killed more, at least 100 million by the calculation of the Harvard-published “Black Book of Communism.” Why does the left-liberal media excuse and cover up for those who embraced Communism? Why does the New York Times still publish obituaries praising Stalinists who were eager to betray and destroy the United States?
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s father Joseph was not only a Marxist scholar but also editor of the Columbia University edition of Italian Communist leader Antonio Gramsci’s prison notebooks. Gramsci and his acolytes devised the Communist doctrine of overthrowing nations not by revolution but a “march through the institutions” – media, cinema, universities and the like – to subvert their culture by deceit and debasement. Buttigieg, another Red Diaper baby, is a perfect Gramscian weapon to fool and destroy the United States. Half of Millennials, whose I.Q. has measurably fallen 3 to 6 points, now support socialism or Communism.
Connect the dots and recognize that we must still fight for America’s survival on this Memorial Day.
