The Ghost of Independence Day 2017

The Ghost of Independence Day 2017

By Plebius Common

And the headlines read on July 4, 2017, Independence Day:  “Are you proud of the country today?”

Democrats                                               Republicans

Yes 51%                                                  Yes 64%
No 45%                                                   No 39%

The first, and legitimate, reaction today is that this is the product of over a half century of radical progressivism.  It took 70 years, from 1945, and a complicit and failing education system to get to this point.  After our War for Independence, after our Civil War, after WWII and “immediately” after 9/11/2001, we were all united.  Time, however, has a propensity to marinate pathos.  Regardless of the blessings, there always will be a Lucifer, having everything one needs, and wanting more.

People might be wise to think of radical progressivism as slavery mandated to an existence of extreme ideology, excuses and victimization.  Yet, people do what they believe.  The rest is BS.

Independence Day

The great power of reasoning, no longer in our Ivory Towers of Academia, is corrupted with delusion, hatred, and political correctness, a substitute for rational thinking.  Einstein left Germany apparently because of the militarization of Germany.  That was his “trigger warning.”  His “Safe Place” was Princeton, where he must have known America would “fight his battle” for life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  While his political compass was biased, his contribution to our victory, in WWII, was E=MC2.  It took Robert Oppenheimer, Leslie Groves, and Edward Teller, history almost lost by planned edifying ignorance, the vision of these men is the “wall” that keeps America safe.

These struggles are an affirmation of the value of our War for Independence.  July 4 is not only an aide-mémoire of our struggle and victory for Independence but a reminder that that miracle must be re-earned every day.

Will you “fight to the death” that for which you are not proud?

How has the left, as indicated by the above survey, essential made America anti-American?  The indoctrination of youth is a proven method to enshrine a false ideology.  Yes, there is the “Trump Hatred Syndrome.”  The real story however, the “True News”, is the back story.  How did we get here from?  Oh, as recently as 1945 V-E and V-J Day?  Forget about ideology or party affiliation, these survey numbers are disturbing.

One fairly undisputed fact is that for over half a century, our teachers have navigated from George Washington patriotism, to a swamp of negativity.  The teaching mantra has shifted from patriotism, individualism and exceptionalism….to…. an overwhelming national pathology obscuring nobility, freedom and liberty.  The generation which now has children in school, for the last decade, knows this is indisputable, Un-American and destructive.

Yes, here are, actually, people who blame America for the worlds’ tribulations.

The Left, Hollywood, and K-1 through K-12 education have indoctrinated a higher historical negativity into the class room absent any fair representation of American Blessings.

Frederick DouglasThe “sins” of a fallible nation are totally out of proportion to our blessings.  Does this not serve the “misery merchants” of Fredrick Douglas?

The “counter culture” of the 1960s has a remarkably successful strategy of taking over the educational institutions.  Goebbels did it in Germany with the Hitler version of Edwards Bernays/ “Scientific Engineering of Consent” and the Nazi Youth Camps.

America does it with masked violent rioters.  Hitler embedded SS Troops in the crowds, they cheered on cue, during Hitler speeches, and the crowds knew not to dissent.  The lesson lives on, vigorously, in North Korea.  Today, our media has been “outed” of their bias, prejudice and malevolent predisposition.

Thus today, that generation of radicals, the Bill Ayres, Sal Alinsky and the Cloward/Piven revolutionaries, with academic tenure, have taken over the learning institutions, the teachers unions, and control of the curriculum.

Legend has it that the Marshall Plan for Germany sought to reestablish the normal operations of the Germany system of higher education.  To do this it was necessary to reestablish diversity, from overwhelming Nazism, the Nazism that Joseph Kennedy embraced.

European history is now nearly absent from American dialogue.  Anyone know what Euro-Centric means?  It means focusing on European culture or history to the exclusion of a wider view of the world.

What brings civilizations down, and possibly America, is when the “Elites” have lost confidence in the “Rightness” of their cause and, further, lose a rational balance for the nature of human fallibility.  When this happens, the rest is just “Fake News.”  This is the Cliff Notes to what happened to the British Empire.

The way to turn this around is a new generation of teachers.  Teachers not committed to our “pathos” history.  Teachers are needed who do not obsess on the “sins of our fathers”, disposition, violence and appropriation, and human fallibility.

What is needed is a focus on the ability to “rise above adversity” and conquer.  Yes, America and the British Empire had slavery.  What is unique is that we outlawed slavery, the British Navy enforced it, and we rose about it.

Ask this generation about this cultural evolvement and one will get blank stares.  The horizon of the lost lessons of history.  Obama’s sins of my father, excuses and victimization is more comfortable than “What if, and why not”?

There is a point at which, like North Korea, where a pivot is unimaginable without horrible violence.  This is a lesson in the value of preemption.

How sad!  Is this not our version of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” except our leitmotif is about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?  What will it take to “wake up” the Sleeping Giant?  We can only wish, no pray, a resurgence of a parallel “Independence Day Ghost of the Future” will be glorious.

There was no peaceful solution for Lucifer in heaven.  That current mosaic is falling into place, today, with North Korea and Iran.  Man must not only fight against evil, he must do battle to preserve the blessings.

Beware, Reagan wisdom,

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

  1. President Trump’s speech in Poland Thursday 7/6/2017 was not too late to reinvigorate July 4, 2017, and it may well have punctuated the end of the Obama era, with Trump giving an address that at times couldn’t be more opposite to the worldview and the vision of former President Obama.

    This may well be the beginning of the formulation of the “Trump Doctrine”. It is a suggestion of his genius in creating diversionary and distracting chaos, to unbalance the opposition, liken to counter attacking CNN for its “Fake News” forcing CNN on the defensive, a Megan Kelly-ism, the gentrification of NATO, then getting traction on the rebirth of American and Western spirit and values, reaffirming a strong commitment to NATO Article 5, and an energy sourcing policy outreach to a Europe dependent on Russian energy.

    Trump is up against an aberrational Social Justice Warrior “SJW” which has turned into SJW jihadist. And Trump has been shrewd enough to analyze their counter culture tactics, their cowardly and effective progressive strategy and profound George Soros motivating hatred.

    They are a horrible enemy to fight: utterly without scruples, fanatically convinced of the justice of their wicked cause, terrifying in the swiftness with which they swarmed and overran your position……and…..the only way to beat the jihadists’ SJW was to fight them with the same aggression, cunning, and mobility of the SJW or other words, to use the enemy’s tactics against them.

    In a strange way, inviting Europe back into the fold of Christian nations, from a decline depicted by Douglas Murrays’ “The Strange Death of Europe”, where Murray described a Europe that “is now deeply weighed down with guilt for its past” and Murray said, pre-suicidal as all democracy’s’ commit suicide, “Europe today has little desire to reproduce itself, fight for itself or even take its own side in an argument”, is it not reminiscent of pre WWII and Churchill?

    “But in Poland Trump found his voice, laying out the Trump Doctrine using a series of questions to the West:

    The defense of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will of its people to prevail and be successful and get what you have to have.

    The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.

    Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost?

    Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders?

    Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?

    Trump offered the world a lens with which to view his policies. The travel ban, the Paris climate deal, cutting down on NATO members not paying their fair share – they can all be viewed in the same way: answering the above questions with a confident and emphatic “Yes.”

    Trumps’ Poland Speech tapped not only into an “America First” attitude, but also a belief that America and the West are worth defending, and that it must be confident and unashamed in doing so.”

    The SJW jihadists, our extreme seculars, must have hated JFK, then and now, whose foreign doctrine was:

    “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

  2. Few remember, or care to admit, that Lincoln was “hated” by half of America, at one time.

    “Everyone’s favorite Islamic radical apologist and Democrat idol Linda Sansour was flapping her lie hole again, this time declaring that #TheResistance was part and parcel of jihad…..
    That’s sort of true, since jihad and liberalism share in common the fact that they are both practiced by cowardly buffoons who “hate” normal Americans.”

    Al Franken was the failed progressive “Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party” front man for “Air America Radio” who has now found a home in the legislature. He is a disparate voice of the George Soros wing of globalism and the Nazism of Joe Kennedy with strong threads of anti-patriotic nationalism.

    Only George Clooney has the sense to come home, fearing for his children and his wife abroad under the chaos of open borders. Against what?? Where are those who promised to leave America if “The Donald” won? Look in the shadows of liberty’s’ cloak. Those who wax poetic on soft tyranny do it from the safe bastion of inside the walls of liberty.

    “[N]ot only is Western civilization the best and most advanced culture in the history of humanity, but the United States of America is its greatest manifestation. The immigrants and refugees get it. Which way are they always headed? North — to the comparative paradise of the Western world — or south, to the hellscape of the Third World?” Where do they go? “That’s a gimme. They are never headed south, and everyone knows it. Yet the left still insists that we stop believing our lying eyes and start believing the liberal Fifth Column of multicultural liars infesting America’s alleged elite.

    “Except our eyes aren’t lying, and now we have a president who won’t lie either. It makes them nuts. Can you imagine Felonia von Pantsuit (Hillary Clinton) uttering the glorious words our Commander-In-Chief spoke to our steadfast, loyal Polish brothers-in-arms? No, [Felonia von Pantsuit] would have continued Obama’s despicable sellout of these sturdy heroes, leaving them to the mercy of her reset buddy Vlad” Putin. That’s a good point. Do you think Putin likes Poland? You don’t think Putin would like to control Poland? And here’s Trump, who supposedly colluded with Putin, praising Poland and promising to protect it?

    It is a fairly easy concept for even “low information voters”, the concept of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”. Todays’ Global Elitists are the inner circle of soft tyranny!

    And todays’ populists are playing a dangerous “prevent defense”.
