Glenn reacts to the op-ed ‘every American should see’

On Friday, the Wall Street Journal published a letter from billionaire venture capitalist Tom Perkins in which he compares the progressive war on the one percent in America today to Nazi Germany’s singling out of Jews in the 1930s. Perkins’ comments have gained so much attention, the venture capital firm he founded has actually denounced his remarks. But on radio this morning, Glenn explained why he agrees with Perkins’ sentiment.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“There is an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal that came out over the weekend that every American should see,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I think Tom is right… He is a hero. He is a hero. Somebody needs to say it. It is the same seed.”

The letter, titled “Progressive Kristallnacht Coming?” reads:

Regarding your editorial “Censors on Campus” (Jan. 18): Writing from the epicenter of progressive thought, San Francisco, I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its “one percent,” namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the “rich.”

From the Occupy movement to the demonization of the rich embedded in virtually every word of our local newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle, I perceive a rising tide of hatred of the successful one percent. There is outraged public reaction to the Google buses carrying technology workers from the city to the peninsula high-tech companies which employ them. We have outrage over the rising real-estate prices which these “techno geeks” can pay. We have, for example, libelous and cruel attacks in the Chronicle on our number-one celebrity, the author Danielle Steel, alleging that she is a “snob” despite the millions she has spent on our city’s homeless and mentally ill over the past decades.

This is a very dangerous drift in our American thinking. Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendent “progressive” radicalism unthinkable now?

Tom Perkins
San Francisco

Mr. Perkins is a founder of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

After the letter was met with ire on various social media platforms, Kleiner Perkins tweeted: ”Tom Perkins has not been involved in KPCB in years. We were shocked by his views expressed today in the WSJ and do not agree.”

Glenn found himself agreeing with Perkins assertion that that ‘truth’ is often difficult to see in the moment, but history ends up telling a very different story. In fact, Glenn did a lesson with his Sunday school class that centered on universal truths and how those truths can be distorted.

When did human beings first realize the earth was round?

Two of the teenagers in Glenn’s class were able to answer that question correctly. It was the ancient Egyptians that first discovered the earth’s circumference, and yet the maps were never updated with that information. Why? Because it didn’t fit the narrative.

“Now, how is it we didn’t know that the world is round? How is it that the maps never changed? How is it that in 1492, they were actually saying we could fall off the edge of the earth? Because it didn’t fit the narrative of those who were in power,” Glenn said. “So how do you lose truth? Truth is discovered and rediscovered over and over and over and over again… There are three factors I think that makes truths disappear.”

Glenn believes those three factors are fear, ignorance, and greed. And he outlined the danger of each:

1. Force and fear

“How is [truth] lost… One, force and fear. Use force. I will take you and shut you up and lock you in the tower. You can ask anyone from Galileo to Tyndale,” Glenn said. “The king says, the power says: Be quiet or fear… It doesn’t have to be the government. It can to be any mob-like mentality that has force over you, can put pressure on you. Step one: Force and fear. That’s the way you lose it. “

2. Ignorance and apathy

“We talked about this last week. The National Crimes… Why are they national crimes? They’re national crimes because you turn the other way; you stop looking at the truth,” Glenn said. “Kristallnacht was absolutely horrific. Would have never been considered in 1930. But nobody warned… because there were thugs up at the top. They shut people up…
Don’t you see? Ignorance, apathy. I don’t know. I don’t care. National crimes.”

3. Greed and envy

“The first part of this is greed… Greed is not necessarily bad unless it makes you do things that are immoral. Wanting to have more, wanting to be more… that’s not bad. But if it makes you do whatever you have to do, even those things are illegal or immoral, then it becomes bad,” Glenn explained. “Then you couple greed with envy because that’s the other side of the greed coin. If everybody else is greedy… then envy sets in. Well, they have it and I don’t. How come I don’t have it? I should take it from them. And then the whole thing burns down.

So how do you avoid the trap of having to consistently rediscover the universal truths? You must ensure you have an engaged and educated population.

“If they don’t want it, they won’t do it. If they want it, they’ll do it,” Glenn said. “When I first started educating myself, I could afford one class at a university. That’s all I needed. And then I started using the library. Then I went to the bookstore – when bookstores actually had books in them. And I educated myself. I’m a self-educated man. A lot of people will look down on that. So be it. I’m proud of it.”

“You have everything you need,” he concluded. “We win. Man does not lose those self-evident truths. The moment… people understand they have all they need… we win.”

    Mr. Beck is correct. Hitler declared war on Germany’s Jews specifically because they were financially successful, hugely so in that nation. And if you think Nazi is a term of the past: my German neighbor’s family were Nazis in Germany in the 1930′s and she continues to believe Hitler was a great man since she was a young woman then. Go figure.

    It’s a parallel to Marx’s dialectical materialism BS. Marx asserted that we as humans would eventually evolve into people who order our societies in a way that nobody wants to be wealthy. He completely disregarded one natural human behavior that will never ever go away. That is: COVETOUSNESS! Even back in the cave man days, a bored guy who was playing around in the sand with his finger would envy the guy next to him that had a stick in his hand to play around in the sand with. Instead of coveting the stick, the first guy could just get up off his ass and go into the woods and find his own stick.
    Crude example I know. Humans will always be evil. It’s natural, it’s reality. To equate covetousness with moral virtue, i.e, hating the one percent, has led to mass slaughter every single solitary time said belief has been practiced. Honestly, who in the hell doesn’t want to be rich? Democrats, will you please stop being idiots and face reality?

    Sunday morning on the History Chanel they presented film depicting the 1930s in Germany and how the Third Reich rose to power. The German people were very close to poverty due to the loss of WWII and war reparations. Then Hitler entered into the fray, as one Berlin journalist at the time, coined a phrase, “the man (Hitler) was like a crazed ape let off his leash” The German people began to regain a more normal financial situation, because of Hitler’s leadership and how he put the average citizen back to work. Things were indeed looking up and German pride was back. Of course, little did the general population know, or understand the situation that Hitler had gotten them into, turns out, their loving Fuehrer, had spent almost every last Deutschmark in the German treasury. In short, Germany had to go to war. Up until this point, it was largely the confiscation of Jewish wealth that funded the recovery thus far, but cash was becoming scarce and new methods involved raiding neighboring states to confiscate their wealth were on the books. Austria went down without a fight, Czechoslovakia followed suit and was weakly handed over, because of an appeasement mentality of Britain, France and the US, These three nations didn’t want anything to do with war. The first world war was still fresh on everyone’s minds, and the major powers were simply turning a blind-eye on the rising dictatorship that was fast growing right before them. These western nations were all hoping against hope, that a policy of “wishful thinking” would be sure to save the day.

    Enter “Sir Winston Churchill” – From the early thirties, this loan voice, fought heavy opposition from all sides trying to warn his nation and the rest of the world that Hitler was a madman and that he was going to make good on his threats made public in his book Mien Kampf. But no one believed him until it was almost too late.

    In his book “Politics Among Nations” international relations expert Hans Morgenthau made this statement;”Of all the factors that make for the power of a nation, the most important, however unstable, is the ‘quality of diplomacy’”

    What Morganthua was referring to, was the most powerful nation(s) in the world are nothing if not lead by men who have the ability to rightly articulate strong position and then back it up. He said, “Diplomacy, one may say, is the brains behind national power. If its vision is blurred, its judgement defective and its determination feeble, all of the advantages of geographical location, in self-sufficiency in food, raw materials and industrial production will in the long run avail a nation very little”

    By what has been demonstrated in recent talks with Iran from within the brain-center of Obama’s administration, that dismal display should be all the proof one needs, demonstrating to the fact, that America no longer has strong leaders with moral guidance with the ability to lead her. Simply showing your teeth and boasting your strength and then, exhibiting little, or no resolve to back up what you said, is not diplomacy, but wishful thinking at best. It is the same shameful appeasement policy that Britain tried using with Hitler just before world-war broke out.

    In 1932 before Parliament, Churchill made the following observation and one would think he was talking to current US leadership, he said, “I cannot recall anytime when the gap between the kind of words which statesmen used and what was actually happening in many countries was so great as it is now. The habit of saying smooth things and uttering pious platitudes and sentiments to gain applause – without relation to the underlying facts, is more profound than it ever has been in my experience.”

    And who would argue today that history is not repeating itself?

    “There is nothing new in the story, its as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalog of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act, when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong – these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.” – Winston Churchill

    That is what liberalism runs off of greed envy and lust. They could care less about the poor but will use the poor’s vote or the brained washed youth who all they want is stuff for no work at all. They can care less about people’s healthcare because if they did they would not design Obamacare to kick off 6 million Americans off the health care plans and then make men buy maternity care so they can feel the woman’s pain. All these people care about is power and money. The left worship money that is why they demand the rich to pay their fare share because liberals do not want to share any of their money at all. Then that is why they make up the lies that say Jesus was a Socialist just like they were but refuse to realize that they worship the dollar as a god instead of the true God. It is time to put these people in their place and tell them that we the people will no longer put up with this any more. Then again Obama might sign an executive order throwing us all into prison because that is what crazy kings do.

    As my post below mentions the History Chanel featured 1930s Germany. The Hitler Youth by the mid-thirties were in full swing. One story presented 45 girls who were part of an organized effort to promote an upswing in the German population. These very young girls referred to themselves as “Hitlers wives”. A letter from one sixteen-year-old to her mother back home read “Dear mother, we have 45 girls in our group, and a short time ago we were camped next to a lake. One evening a group of boys came down to the lake and began to swim, funny thing…they were all naked, another funny thing…35 girls in my group are now pregnant, but mother, the funniest thing yet….I’m one of them”

    This girls frantic mother rushed to her daughters rescue as soon as she could. When she arrived, her daughter told her to leave and if her mother insisted on taking her home, the daughter would report her to the headmistress who would inform the Gestapo, where this poor woman would be promptly hauled off to a nearby concentration camp.

    One of the biggest faults after world war two, was for the Allies to allow the German people to d-nazify themselves, as your neighbor is the proof, that plan didn’t pan out.

    Right you are. I’ve seen quite a few WWII docs, but this particular one, had for some reason eluded me. It’s amazing the similarities of them back then – to America today. A few things though that are drastically different, Hitler imprisoned gays, drug users, perverts etc. Obama encourages these groups. Hitler wanted to expand his borders, where Obama is closing down foreign bases and bringing our troops home asap. Obama is gutting our military, Hitler was increasing his. So there are vast differences. One thing that we should keep our eyes on, Germany is once again a power to be reckoned with. There is reason to be alarmed…shortly after the war a German Document was recovered by British intelligence and made known to the Americans shortly thereafter. The document referenced high-ranking German officials, who prior to wars end, acknowledged they had, in fact, lost this round to the Allied forces…so, they simply went underground..via, the Catholic Church. In the document the German plan was to recover from defeat by waging a war against Capitalism – in short, they meant to beat the Americans at their own game. By the looks of things today, the German economy has done just that. Also in the document was an obligation to wage war once again, but this time they would take out the Americans and Brits from the start, as not to be hindered in their new quest for world domination.

    This document was top-secret until about a decade or so back, when it was released. At the time, the American news media deemed the story unimportant, If memory serves, there was only a handful of news papers that even covered the story and that was deep inside on section B or C. That’s one of the dangers of a very liberal press.

    Granted, there are some parallels and we should note them and learn from History. However, I do not believe anyone will be gathering up the very rich and throwing them into filthy, over-crowded, disease infected pits of despair and then ordering them to strip down and walk into gas chambers, young and old alike, to force upon them an agonizing death. Will the rich thru Obamacare leave the elderly and less able without proper meds, treatment, etc and just let them die? Perhaps. The rich can certainly afford the medical care they need while the rest of us stand in long lines waiting hours for inadequate medical care. So, I don’t see the top 1% undergoing the immense Torture of the Jews. However, there may be a close resemblance for the rest of us if the elite continue on the path they have chosen.

    I’m sorry, but you are mistaken. The massacre of the Jewish race was not necessarily all about money. Also, people do not hate the rich because they are rich. People in our country are sick of the rich, because the majority of the wealthy in our country feel like they have some sort of entitlement that the rest of our country does not have privilege to. Not everybody who works hard in America gets rich, but most certainly not everyone who is rich in America works hard. That is the problem.

What kind of life is that? I figure better than most, as my ancestors were German Jews…who I never got a chance to meet. My father and his eight year old brother jumped a ship and landed on these shores. Now THAT man was humble and loved this country.

    Sorry, but I just can’t feel sorry for the rich and i certainly can not draw a parrallel between anything they are currently ‘suffering’ with the absolute horror the Jews underwent under Hitler. There is ‘income inequality’ and it shall always exist for one reason or another. But.. i can not stomach hearing the rich cry ‘poor me’ or consistently defending themselves by claiming how great they are because they give so much. Most give for tax deductions and actually benefit from their giving. When i see their giving being done thru self-sacrifice, and not as simply another way to make money, then their ‘whining’ may be somewhat justified. When i see the ultra-rich voluntarily taking pay cuts and refusing millions in bonuses while someone who lives perhaps only 10 miles away is worrying daily where they will get food for their babies, and personally reaches out to them instead of simply writing a check to some bureaucratic charity, then I may feel differently. But for now, to compare on any level their lot in life with the Jews who were persecuted under Hitler, infinitely exceeds such outlandish parallels.

    The economic meltdown can be attributed to TARP being passed into law. Bush shouldn’t have allowed it to happen. It was a mistake. Obama continued the economic insanity with Dodd-Frank. Combine the two bills, which BOTH sides are responsible for, and you have sub-prime loans ruining the housing market and federal oversight of loans making it almost impossible for most people to get one at their local bank. Banks are too afraid of government scrutiny to grant loans. You are correct, you didn’t mention anything about Republicans. You also didn’t point out that the Democrats of now are repeating the same mistakes as the Republicans of the Bush era. The economy isn’t being undone by rich people. It’s being undone by the politicians making it hard for the rich people to stimulate the economy with their liquid assets and their ability to move money around more than the rest of us. This is a highly political topic so the fact that you avoided admitting where your politics lie (when it’s obvious where you stand) is a total smokescreen.

    Maybe if the rich stopped trying to take every fucking thing that there is to take, maybe, just maybe, the playing field might level out a little. We are a consumption society. Once there is nothing more to take, the current rich population will become the poorest people in the world, because their money won’t buy them anything anymore. Wealth is an illusion people. The rich are not happy. In fact, I would venture to bet they are some of the most miserable people in the world, who cannot fill the void in their miserable lives, so they try to stuff $100 bills into it as much as possible. They are empty, soulless people. Being truly rich means being content with what you have. The most valuable things in life cannot be bought.

    It was politicians ignorant of reality who were responsible for the housing bubble – does Fanni Mae and Freddie Mac ring a bell. It was largely their idea that all Americans should own a home, no matter that persons financial rating and past experience. The banks were forced to go along and pay out loans that were sure to fail. These loans were then packaged and sold overseas. It was the poor and middle class who excepted these loans, where is their accountability in this.

    Usually I agree with Glenn, actually always. This time not so much.
    He says there is a war on the one percent,it appears to me that the “war on the top earners is merely a war of words meant to make the rest of us feel like the government actually gives a crap about economic injustice.
    The reality is that in the past five years the rich have gotten richer at an unprecedented rate while everyone below them in the economic chain has been assaulted on every front. Taxes and cost of living for the “little guy” have shot sky high while the government has used every mechanism at their disposal to put money back into the pockets of the one percent.
    Banks, corporations,auto makers, ins companies, salt energy cos, and the stock market at large have received more Tax payer dollars handouts in the last five years than in the rest of history combined!!!
    None of that money has found its way into the hands of the middle class or the lower class. Corps and banks and the stock market post record profit month after month while wages have decreased and Real Unemployment has reached over thirty percent! Please explain to me how this is a war on the wealthy when from every legitimate data point it seems to be a we on everyone but the wealthy!!!!
    I do believe wholeheartedly that this current administration has nothing less than Hitleresque goals and plans for the populace of the US, But it seems this time they have payed off and therefore employed the top one percent to help them eliminate the rest of us!!
    I am truly shocked that Glenn believes differently.

    I think the reason he is gutting the military is because the people in nowadays haven’t been brainwashed by obamas propaganda and since they are starting out with the government taking control of the schools they can teach that propaganda in schools so by the time people get to the age to join a whole new teaching of what government is will be different and those that know the old way will be weeded out! So I think by cutting funds and closing bases move folks will be forced into early retirement preparing the way for a new military! It’s just a thought not saying that is what will happen but who knows!

    It was easy for Hitler, but may not be that easy for the present administration. The parallels are the same. Obama campaigned on CHANGE with a lot of promises to people. Those promises are impossible to keep and that’s why the US is so deep in debt. If the present trend is to keep going, the US will be ruined into a third-world country. Obama’s focus is to redistribute the wealth and people are falling for it completely. BUT, what people are oblivious to is that the government elite, part of that 1% rich guys, are living off the poorer folk who work and pay taxes. Just look how the rich contribute to the party coffers, be it democrat or republicans, only to gain favor in the elite circles. And who pays for all this donated money? The little guy, while Washingto laughs its way to the bank!!!

    That sounds about right and falls in line with the creepy thinking of the liberal left, if this liberal logic is true, then there won’t be time enough to wait for the next generation to come of age. Before we would have time to rebuild our military in the image of Obama, nations such as Iran etc, would drop us to our knees with some unforeseen attack and most likely on our own soil. If that were to happen, then this generation might be the last.

    I completely agree with Glenn and with Perkins — except that this is not just an attack on “the 1%”, it’s an attack on the productive class as a whole. The recent so-called “demonstrations” (attacks) on Google’s Bay Area shuttle buses are an example.

    The welfare parasites who are committing these attacks really ought to think twice. If they force the people who are paying their bills to flee the country, they’ll soon regret it.

    Of course, the police should be doing their job and stopping the attacks, and if they won’t the victims themselves should be fighting back. But I don’t expect either to happen anytime soon.

    I would argue greed, as such, specifically means a desire for self-increase that motivates you to act immorally.
    If you just want to have more or improve your station in life, but not at the cost of doing the right thing, that’s not greed.
    So greed is necessarily bad.

The book “How to Kill a Million People” should be required reading for anyone who is concerned about what is happening with this president and how easily it is to herd people by empty promises, a good speech and the act of distributing money from the workers to the non-workers. Called redistribution. Sound familiar? It is so scary I hate to think about living another 20 years if this country goes down that disastrous road. I am here as a refugee after WWII living in a refugee camp for almost 11 years in Austria because of what the Hitler regime did to my family. Now I see this here and it just enrages me to see how many people have refused to open their eyes to the evil that is taking over this country. My family came here with the hope of a future that is good and fair. Until this liar in chief came along this country had a chance.

    Economics is not a zero sum game. Investment creates new wealth — but it won’t take place unless the person doing the investing can count on being allowed to keep what he has earned. And if it doesn’t take place — no jobs. That’s why Obama’s two terms have been an ongoing depression. Wake up!

People who steal end up in jail. People with money don’t need to steal.

    There is strong, although not damning, evidence that the church helped smuggle Nazi war criminals into hiding. That priests and bishops knowingly participated in helping perpetrators of racial genocide with church resources and on church property is a well-documented unquestioned fact, but there is currently investigation into evidence pointing to the plot possibly going all the way up to Peter’s throne itself.This investigation will, one way or the other, have severe impact on the current pope’s efforts to canonize Pius XII.

    Greed and envy should have been on the top of Glenn’s list, because these two breed dissatisfaction and unrest (Occupy Wall Street etc.). Ignorance and apathy are right behind it because they breed jealousy (Jews were successful in Germany and the Nazi’s and their followers did not like that). Once the government has stirred up the masses and has them eating out of their hands, they can take control. Anyone who might be inclined to speak out against them will be squashed (incarcerated or put to death) This is when force and fear comes into play. Soon all people will be “equally”, brainwashed or too scared to speak up. Those at the top will have everything and those who are not in charge will have lost everything.

  • Anonymous

    I understand where you are coming from, its logical for you to feel that way, based on what is happening around the globe. I factor into the formula the following reality. 1) Europe has relied heavily on America might for its protection, post world war. That is no longer the case today, America is diminishing its fingerprint around the world due to political correctness. Seems it means more to our politicians to be liked/loved, than it does to make sound and difficult decisions. Many in political chambers agree, that the best policy (rather if its true or not) is to stay out of other nations affairs – when in fact, what happens in an ever shrinking and hostile globe directly effect us in numerous ways 2) Because the rise in Islam, it effects Europe much more dramatically than it does us here in the states – added to the fact that the US is pulling its troops out of the Middle East. Europe is left defending itself. They cannot rely on Russia, or China, so the ball is now in their court. Now factor in history, and remember the toughest lesson in history to learn is – how not to repeat it. That said, Europe and the Middle East have a long bloody history, if there are any two powers on earth, I could imagine, that might come to blows, it would be the Islamic hoards and the Catholic Church. Even though religion has been slumping recently in Europe, it still remains predominantly Catholic. There is growing resentment against the rise of Islam, this trend does not sit well among many Europeans, especially the Germans. 3) Back to America, our own history shows that in the past century alone, it was the Germans who were our deadliest enemy not Islam. That is not to say that Islam doesn’t represent a growing danger for us here at home, but my take is the Obama administration will ignorantly continue to peruse the course its on and appease the radical element until its to late. If things continue down the road we’re on, this nation will be caught up in civil-war sooner than later. With that in mind, if bloody civil unrest becomes a reality, then I wouldn’t count out a sneak attack on our soil, by the likes of a Hezbollah group, or some other Iranian proxy. There is more that makes me feel the way I do, but space does not permit = recent calls made in Germany are to form a European super-state, placing Germany at the helm…again, the thing history most declares, is that the world constantly repeats it. Keep your eye on Europe, especially the Germans. Also, remember that they possess American nuclear bombs on their soil (under UN protection treaties)

  • Judith Wolfe

    The Democrats have been doing this redistribution for years. Giving government presents to those who either don’t want to work or have lost their job. But the poor are by no means getting any richer. As a matter of fact they are becoming under this president poorer than ever. The wake up call will come when the government simply cannot wring out any more money from the rich or the middle class. When the government checks are cut off that is when Obama’s CHANGE will begin. Hence, that is why Obama wants gun control and is discharging excellent Generals from the military. But in the end, it may be Obama who is surprised by the CHANGE!

    Germany depends very much on world trade, it has very few mineral resources. On military hardware it ranks fourth, but the US, China and France are way ahead of them. It has expertise, but how much longer? Liberalism is also gnawing at the edges of this once self-assured country. The terrible influx caused by open borders which bring many uneducated people into Europe and Germany in particular will spell trouble. There is a perfect storm brewing and a culture clash can not be avoided in the future.

    If you all really want to know the TRUTH about what has been going on in this country for decades watch this video online: “Agenda, the Grinding Down of America” I had an instructor in Boot Camp in 1961 who, after giving us a brief history of communism, predicted the things which would happen in the next 50 years. The man, God bless him, was spot on right down to the sequence they have happened! We are losing this country without firing a shot just as Nikita Khrushchev predicted at the U.N. in 1960 during his: “We will bury you” speech. Virtually every facet of our lives has been not only infiltrated, but influenced by those wishing to bring us down. Our entire educational system, from colleges to grade schools are deliberately being “dumbed down” as to our history and national pride. Books I studied in school no longer exist, especially U.S. History! Thanks to “liberal” / “progressive” school boards and PTA’s our kids have been indoctrinated to a new kind of thinking which leaves them more robotic than the free thinkers they should be. We adults are also being dumbed down by a news media, with the exception of FOX NEWS, that develops amnesia when it comes to certain facts we ought to be made aware of about the goings on with our leadership in Washington. I watch a local news program to get the local weather and that is all. The so called “major networks” have nothing but useless drivel with neither educational or redeeming value to them. My personal philosophy has always been to learn something new every day and to hear the TRUTH! Another source of information, and at times a blessing, has been the internet. The wondrous “search” bar is a place where many interesting things can be discovered for example: “List of 80 Communists in Congress” will get you the names and state each “Democrat” is from. Now this list was supposedly put out by the “Communist Party of America” their motive is unclear, but knowing who they are would guarantee my vote going to the other candidate! Another search reveals: “Muslims in the Obama Administration” many are heads of their particular department – and some of their write-ups have the word “Radical” attached. HAVE A NICE DAY AMERICA!

    Absolutely, it won’t sit well with either Britain, or France, for the German’s to become the dominant player in the affairs of Europe. That scenario won’t find the Chinese and Russian’s jumping for joy either, but all indications are pointing in that direction. Britain has wavered on the EU fence for decades and in the past few years, calls from within the halls of parliament indicate, that the tiny island will eventually pull out, or, the rest of Europe won’t allow Britain to enter, either way they’re no longer a factor. Actually Britain hasn’t been for years and the real struggle for EU dominance has been between France and Germany. This battle was thought to be in Frances advantage, especially since Hollande was elected, but just this month, he basically surrendered to German leadership and joined in the growing Euro-Choir to have things Germany’s way. In a Paris news conference Jan 14 of this year, Francois Hollande announced his new plans to revive the French economy which mirrored what Germany had been abdicating all along, previous to this news, Hollande had argued against the German position to cut spending, now, in a 360 degree reversal, Hollande was completely on board with German thinking. The most important thing to take away from this reversal in policy is, French leadership will no longer oppose German position. Leaving Germany the top dog. These are/were the only two nations in Europe that could have remotely challenged the rise of a new and powerful Germany and both nations have wavered.

    You’re asking the question of the century, as far as “how much longer US power will go undisputed”, already, Putin has made Obama look foolishly-childish and the Chinese have flat out embarrassed us in front of the world. These two nations realize we still have tremendous military strength, but they are testing American resolve to use it. So far, the US has proven to be the paper tiger that most of the world has come to think of us.

    Again, I agree that Germany relies heavily on world trade , but, that is the major factor most are not willing to realize. When America is no longer there to play a roll in the affairs of Europe, or influence the Middle East, this is when Germany will skyrocket to the top. Already, Germany is setting itself up in the region largely absent of US influence. Its military is deployed in several hot-spots, in and around, the Middle East – the Mediterranean and Africa. Nations such as Saudi Arabia and Israel are courting Germany for alliance against the growing Islamic threat primarily brought about by Iran

    The problem with American news media is its self-centered nature, we hear more about Madonna and Justin Beaver then we do real news, especially if it pertains to world news. Most of our people could care less about national news because it depresses them, these same people don’t have a clue when it comes to whats happening in Europe or even the Middle East.

    There is indeed a perfect storm brewing, Germany will work the Catholic Church to its favor, sort-of-a new Holy Roman Empire….again, history has a funny way of reputation.

    Very well written, only Germany was obliged to put troops abroad because they are part of NATO. Many Germans did not like meddling in other countries’ affairs. The German’s also have a volunteer Army. Conscription was ended in 2011. Too many of the older generation still remember what war brought them, misery beyond compare. I am not against that young people serve in the military. It teaches obedience, respect, camaraderie, mutual trust and the spirit of loyalty among other things. I think we would have a better society if young people would serve their country for a while.

    Wishful thinking, or simply assuming matters, especially when the subject pertains to nuclear weapons based in Europe, even more so – Germany, doesn’t reveal the clear facts. The truth is, there remain hundreds of American nukes on European soil, plans are currently in the works for upgrading these B61 thermo-nuclear weapons newly designed for quick deployment, rendering them even more deadly than they are now.

    During the cold war America had 7,300 tactical nuclear weapons, as you point out, most of these weapons were, in fact, brought back here to the states, but there continues to be anywhere from one-hundred-fifty, to two-hundred unaccounted bombs. These bombs are not scheduled to return here – “that is safely”, (rather they be fired off at us, as an act of war and returned to us, is completely a whole other story).

    At present time the numbers are –

    The Netherlands – 20 est. – up to 44 – Volkel Air Base
    Belgium – 20 est. – up to 44 – Kleine Brogel Air Force base
    Germany – 20 est. – up to 44 – Buchel Air Force Base
    Italy – 50 est – up to 72 – Aviano Air Force Base
    Italy – 20 est. – Ghedi Torre Air Force Base
    Turkey – 70 est – up to 90 – Incirlik Air Base

    The delivery system upgrade from the American F-16 to the German PA200 Tornado is a maximum pay-load from one bomb, to a new four bomb capacity.

    I know that. Our politicians are corrupt, and all money grubbing. I am not disillusioned in the fact that they use what they can to get what they want. I just hate the way people think that poor society is completely useless, and that none of them work. It is sad. There are so many people who worked their entire lives believing in a lie that is the “American Dream.” Elderly people who pay every dime of their retirement, and social security to Nursing Homes, because their children cannot afford the time to take care of them. They deserve representation. The vet that served his country in Vietnam, but now has lost everything, and is homeless, yeah, you know, the guy that most people shun as the drunk on the corner. He is poor. He cannot work. He gave everything to this country, but most would judge him as poor and useless. Wake Up people.

    They were brain washed from childhood on, just like Liberals worship Obama. You can point out the failures, lies and mistakes but they still can not be convinced that it all is a pipe dream and their leader is a mirage.
    In contrast to Obama though Hitler did improve the lot of the German people. They had work and they had a dream again after being demoralized and defeated when World War I was over. Only their dream was short lived and in the end turned into a nightmare. Ask yourself, are we better off after the promise of “Hope and Change” the Liberals promised? This nightmare is not over for a long time.

    I agree that young Americans should serve their country. I’ve got a nephew who was raised basically parent-less, not that he’s an orphan mind you, he just had rotten parents. The kid didn’t know his ass, from an elbow, but he sure knew game-boy and how to text with the best of’em. Now, from what I hear, he’s joined the Air Force and I’m more than curious to see who he is – after he’s spent some time.

    As far as Germany goes, there are many in conservative circles, who are working overtime to implement a different military, one that can offensively solve its own problems. The biggest obstacle of course (and rightly so) is Germany’s violent past. But Germany is calling for, and leading the way for a military-unification of Europe. Rapid reaction forces are what they’re aiming for.

    Well, just take a look at Communist Russia. It was the same with them. “Redistribution of wealth”‘ was their big thing. They make the uneducated, envious of the man with wealth; however it is only the wealthy man with wealth who has some semblance of power. Not people who make big money like sports figures or Movie stars (they have no power). The government wants to take money that enjoys a certain amount of power. Ergo, everyone should be “equal”, as in “poor”. Except the elite who run the government.

    Such is Obamacare. They govt. will take over 1/6 of the economy, and then the also have the power to say who lives an who dies, by how they distribute the medical care for each age group. Like the new lW in Obamacare that people over 70 should only receive palliative care if hospitalized with anything serious. If the die, they die! So, one can realize that this then also becomes a form of “population control”.

    As if treating the symptom and not the cause, wasn’t bad enough throughout modern American medicine, now, the new cause for not being treated is “age” – sounds like something right out of the Obama playbook. Presently, I feel that most Americans are now wide awake, the one thing most of our people have yet to consider, is the influx of illegal-aliens and young people just starting out in life. These people often find it difficult to meet financial obligations and responsibilities.The lure of entitlements is often to hard to resist – now, today, new laws make it mandatory to be insured and for many Americans, there is no other place to find insurance except Obamacare. – this aggressive socialist plan is working exactly as designed.

    I think that the demonizing of the so called 1% is merely the excuse(s) for setting up the Federal government mechanisms for taxing, regulating and outright confiscating cash and asset from all Americans in the name of fairness, income equality and of course debt reduction. The use of violence as done by the Nazi Brown shirts in the 1930′s is unnecessary when regulatory criminal and civil prosecutions, egregious taxation and control of the economy rests markedly in the hands of government bureaucrats.

    That is sad that people think that way. Hard Work should pay off, but no work should not. This is a truth that everybody realizes, but some ignore. There is a fine line between someone like me who works hard every day for what I make, and someone who simply sits back and takes. That is why, I believe, many people are so disgusted with the gap. Hard working Americans who struggle every day for a meager pay check find it impossible to get ahead when cost of living goes up daily, and the pay stays the same. It can be very discouraging to see someone who doesn’t work getting by just as good as you do, yet every day you go to work for it, and they sit at home, pop out more babies, and collect. I do not agree with that mindset at all.

    “A fair days wages for a fair days labor” – I’ve read your other replies to me and I’ll say this about myself, right is right and wrong is wrong, it doesn’t matter who the person is, or what political affiliation he subscribes to, or, the color of his skin. I had a black gentleman, about a year or so ago, correct me in my spelling – I was posting a comment that dealt with how blacks regularly treat one another…what was the word I was attempting, you ask, well I spelled niger, this guy having no remorse, politely corrected me and gave me the proper spelling. If all of us would simply chill – maybe take a few deep breaths, then half our battle of communication is over.

    I believe in a higher being. I feel that there is one God, one Church, and one Gospel. Many of the most contested arguments I have ever experienced, have come from fellow conservatives. I feel the biggest division separating our people comes from a lack of a true understanding of who God is. The political left have been saturated from grade school on up, to simply swallow what they are taught – it seems unproven theories have more weight, than do, the precepts of God. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not suggesting that theory not be discussed, I’m only saying that the possibility of something greater than ones-self might be considered important enough to openly discuss it. Belief in God certainly didn’t hamper the citizens who built this once proud nation, but one can certainly notice the absence of said logical thinking found in no other book than the holy bible.

    That said, I hold more responsible, those who lay claim to the title of Christian Faith, as to why our people have become so separated. I talked to a college kid not long ago, when I brought that very subject up and he agreed that religion probably was the biggest factor of what divides our people.

    If anything, I can downright piss off both sides of the isle, and that, in a heartbeat. I frequently and openly challenge those on the left to prove evolution. I vehemently encourage those who profess God to “prove him at his word” not to simply take another mans idea of – who God is, and why he placed us humans here. I feel what discourages our young people most, is the fact that in all the 3000 or more churches practicing their freedom of religion, not one agrees with each other…it doesn’t take a genius, how young inquisitive minds, might simply turn away for something more tangible, not going against the grain also plays a big part in most college kids excepting the idea that there is no God…and who can blame them.
    I believe the key ingredient for Americas major problems is lack of basic fundamental knowledge and true understanding on both sides.

    2- “ At the same time, a carefully orchestrated smear
    campaign under the direction of Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels portrayed
    Jews as enemies of the German people.”

    MSNBC , NPR, CBS, NBC, CNN, Newspapers, social media, Probably FOX news as well since the CEO was
    one of the biggest contributors to the Obama campaign.

    3. “Daily anti-Semitic slurs appeared in Nazi newspapers, on
    posters, the movies, radio, in speeches by Hitler and top Nazis, and in the
    classroom”

    –YUP, YUP

    4. “Back in Germany, years
    of pent-up hatred toward the Jews were finally let loose on the night that
    marks the actual beginning of the Holocaust. The Night of Broken Glass”

    Occupy Wall-Street …in my opinion this is just the beginning

    4. “But by giving the
    Jews the blame Hitler created an enemy. Hitler said that all Germany’s problems
    had been caused by the Jews. Many people believed him.”

    —Obama ( government) used the “Rich” as his scape goat to bring
    attention away from Washington and focused on the new enemy of the state….(
    those evil, greedy, rich people) we need to take back what ours and redistribute
    their wealth to Everybody??

    5- “Hitler used the Jews to further his political career.
    Most Germans were affected by the great depression and they were looking for a
    reason or someone to blame for their situations.”

    —– BAM!

    Hitler targeted the Jews because
    he said they were the source of suffering of the German people and they were
    not pure Germans. He believed that they had too much land, power, influence and
    money even during the great depression. Therefore, when he got the power, he
    wanted to kill all the Jews and return the power to the Germans.

    Yes, Gov. Walker is one of the best. After he was elected, he did exactly what he promised during his campaign. He stood by his principles even when thousands were demonstrating right outside his office. He has eliminated a huge deficit and created a surplus. Many school districts are saving thousands of Dollars because they are not bound to buy insurance from union companies anymore, etc. There are many other ways he has helped our State.
