Posts Tagged ‘World War II Memorial’

In politics, each event is linked to another. By understanding the linkage, you can discern what is happening and why. For example, people have been mystified about why President Obama did nothing to obtain the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi. I wasn’t surprised—not in the least.

Here’s the reason. Obama thought he would be championed for obtaining the release of Sgt. Bergdahl, but that didn’t happen. When Obama was criticized and ridiculed for making a bad deal, by releasing the Taliban Five for a deserter, Obama’s narcissism was deeply offended. Not helping Tahmooressi was the American public’s “just punishment” for not appreciating Obama’s great victory in obtaining Bergdahl’s release. To Obama, it wasn’t Tahmooressi that was important; it was punishing the rest of us, allowing Tahmooressi to suffer vicariously as our proxy.

Shutting down the World War II Memorial to vets in their 80s and 90s is another example. It was America’s just punishment for the Republicans not giving Obama the funds he wanted. Again, closing the Memorial was linked to Obama not getting his way. Understanding Obama’s narcissistic linkage helps us be able to predict his behavior.

When the Republicans take the Senate in the mid-term elections, it will be seen by Obama and his sycophants as a direct repudiation of the President’s policies and leadership. Obama even said so, which many consider to be a gaffe, but it wasn’t. It was a warning. When he said, “Make no mistake about it, all of my policies are on the ballot,” Obama was letting us know we had better reelect Democrats. In his twisted thinking, he was warning us that if we fail him by electing Republicans, then we deserve the punishment he will impose.

Losing the Senate isn’t something Obama is incapable of taking in stride. If we don’t head his clear warning, there will be “Hell to pay.” What that will be, I have no idea, but I’m 100 percent certain it will occur. By repudiating him personally, which is a massive affront to his fragile ego structure, I’m sure his punishment will be severe. If you think my hypothesis is ridiculous, just wait and watch. It won’t take long.

Symbols have meaning. They are what hold us together in difficult circumstances—like the image of the flag being lifted on Iwo Jima in World War II.

At the World War II memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., there is an effort to have a plaque added, which invoked the D-Day prayer of Franklin D. Roosevelt. As Commander-in-Chief, on a national radio broadcast to entire nation, the President offered a prayer for the brave young men landing on the coast of France to liberate Europe from the Nazis.

There is an effort to have a portion of Roosevelt’s prayer added to the memorial—an effort that is being resisted by the Obama administration.

This is what veterans and a group of Congressmen want added:

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Not only does the prayer have historical relevance but it also provides a glimpse into the values “The Greatest Generation” held dear, which is precisely why the militant secularists insist that it not be allowed.

Led by Ken Salazar, Obama’s Secretary of the Interior, the Obama Administration is fighting this tooth and nail. To many, this may seem trivial and unimportant, but I beg to differ.

By refusing to allow the addition of the prayer to the memorial, along with a myriad of similar obstructions, this generation of Americans has been effectively severed from its historical foundation. Being adrift from the symbols that have held us together for more than two hundred years, young people by the millions are clueless about the rich heritage bestowed upon us, including those who died on the beaches of France on June 6, 1944.

If this trend to repudiate the values of our Founding Fathers is not reversed, we will be unable to sustain the foundation of our democracy much longer. There are forces from within that want to repudiate our heritage at all costs, revising history to do so. At the same time, there are others, including me, which are equally committed to reconnecting to our heritage in a real way.

The battle is on for the heart and soul of America, and you are part of it, whether you like it or not. The time has come to choose whom you will serve. As for me, I’ll stick with Almighty God and what Roosevelt had to say.
