A Few Words about President George H. W. Bush ~

Tags

, ,


I have been very quiet this week about the death of President George H. W. Bush.

Each time that I thought to write even a short blurb on the 41st President of the United States, it is not that I came up blank, with much “bordering” on the negative, i.e., “bordering”, you get it…illegal immigration? Building that wall followed by the next that comes to mind, i.e., Bush’s infamous “Read my lips, no new taxes” pledge, results of which were heralded at POTUS41’s funeral Wednesday by former Wyoming Senator Alan Simpson.  On the bright side, as we say, there is POTUS41’s World War II service record.

In addition to George H. W. Bush being the youngest naval aviator in American history, his legacy is that of being the last president to serve in combat in addition to being “the last of the ‘Greatest Generation’ chief executives.”

We thank POTUS 41 and his family for their service.

In spite a week’s worth of propaganda espoused by the globalist media establishment to canonize fellow globalist George H. W. Bush for the purpose of de-legitimizing President Donald J. Trump., the Communist media complex and comrades have exposed themselves once again. Their amoral mindset is and will always be that the only good Republican is a dead Republican.

Thus, I have chosen to remain silent, i.e., until I received the following article written by Dov Fischer of The American Spectator in an email from Tabitha Korol.

While I do not agree with everything in the article, it’s still worth sharing and reading in its entirety.  Enjoy.

American Spectator by Dov Fischer (excerpt)

…How fitting that long before we all became cognizant of the media’s indulgence in “Fake News” and lying to the American people to push their liberal Democrat agenda, it was that media that described this man as a “wimp”! Newsweek ran a cover story on him: “The Wimp Factor.” This man was a war hero, and the wimps who wrote about him would have released their urine in their pants if they had confronted even one-tenth the danger that this man of courage and bravery faced and over which he triumphed gallantly. But I can never forgive him for two things: one microcosmic and one macrocosmic.

The Microcosmic: James A. Baker III and the Hate

Microcosmic — he had James A. Baker III as his Secretary of State. Baker was the worst public anti-Semite in high government office since the time of World War II. I can forgive Baker for hating Jews because that is his DNA. I cannot expect someone to overcome his DNA. But I cannot forgive Bush for allowing Baker to run roughshod over Israel and for his despicable quoted closed-door comments about Jews[…]

Unified Patriots by Vassar Bushmills

(First written in 2010, a reflection on the traveling season.)

Are riff-raff runways in America’s future? I’ll bet you didn’t know that Europe has had them for years, at least since the fall of the Berlin Wall nearly 30 years ago,

I’ve flown through most every major European hub, Heathrow and Gatwick in London, Amsterdam, Zurich, Frankfurt, Munich, DeGaulle in Paris, Vienna…always headed for points east. Each has its own peculiar charm (or lack thereof) and its own ambiance, but clearly their design is intended to keep the more olive-skinned, dressed-down Valdemars and over-painted Ellie Mae’s from rubbing elbows with the blondies from Dusseldorf waiting for a flight to Madrid. After all, no one in Dusseldorf would go to Skopje unless he absolutely had to.

Instead, there is a single terminal for all those points east (read “dark points”) while der sonnenkinder traffic arrive and depart in other terminals amidst their own.

The funny thing is that I don’t think the Europeans even notice it, or would admit it is planned. “Eezz normal” (stress on the second syllable) as they say in Moscow…to separate people by class in this way. Of the bunch, DeGaulle, Gatwick and Vienna stand out most in my memory, but for varying reasons. While every “plane station” has a riff-raff terminal, it’s said deGaulle even has riff-raff runways, although I actually doubt it. But after three hours in a well lit beautiful concourse, inhabited exclusively with dingy-clad east Europeans, feisty Asians and non-francophone Africans (I checked their departures) we are taken down to a bus, which drives around for twenty-thirty minutes and empties us on a parking strip that is visible to the terminal only with binoculars, where our aircraft is parked, and we board like an old DC-3 at National in 1960, only no Pall Mall to crush out before climbing the stairs. Then we taxi across several perfectly functioning runways to one headed in an entirely different angle than the others, amidst tall trees. I felt like the Mississippi State basketball team trying to sneak out of the state in order to play Loyola in 1963. While almost everyone is traveling to Philadelphia or New York, there are always a few headed to Pottstown[…]

The Story Of Hanukkah, Festival Of Lights And Freedom

Tags


Wow! Magazine by Joshua Pundit

Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights is celebrated this week.

While many of you may be familiar with the story of the Miracle of the Oil, the truth is that Hanukkah really celebrates another miracle – the miracle of a group of untrained farmers and tradesman with hardly any arms or experience in war utterly defeating the professional armies of the Seleucid Empire, a victory for freedom that belongs to all of us alike, Jew and Gentile.

Hanukkah celebrates not only one of the important events in Jewish history but is a celebration of the triumph of faith,of light over darkness. It takes place every year,usually in mid to late December, but while its date varies if you go by the western calendar, in the Hebrew calendar Hanukkah always falls on the eve of the 24th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev.

This war for Jewish independence took place in the second century B.C.E. The story is told in the First Book of Maccabees, and retold in the Second Book of Maccabees. An excellent contemporary military history of the war can be found in Battles of the Bible, coauthored by Chaim Herzog and Mordechai Gichon.

After his death, Alexander the Great’s empire broke into several parts, and Israel was under the control of the Seleucid Greek empire, based in Syria. Israel had lived peacefully under the Persian Empire and under the Ptolemic empire (of Egypt), both which tolerated Judaism but the Seleucid Emperor Antiochus Epiphanes was an arrogant, bigoted ruler who attempted to force the Jews to abandon their religion and to adopt the Seleucid Greek customs and worship,which included idolatry[…]
