Memorial Day 2013: Remembering Our Heroes Who Made the Ultimate Sacrifice; But Enemies Fought Overseas Now Win on US Soil

By Debbie Schlussel

I try to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to America–giving their lives so that we would and will continue to be free–every single day, on this site and in the work I do outside of it. We need to remember those who gave their lives for America every single day, not just on one day of the year.

But I have mixed emotions on this Memorial Day 2013. That’s because, yesterday, an experience I had brought starkly into my mind the contrasts and ironies involved in remembering those who died overseas (and on U.S. soil) in service to our country and to keep us free, while our enemies flourish on U.S. soil and nearly make their deaths ones that were in vain. Every day, young Americans–mostly men, and most of them so young, they are really almost kids–continue to die in Afghanistan, as they also died in Iraq, for no apparent reason, other than to pretend we are fighting to change the prevailing Islamic dynamic overseas. And at the same time they are fighting and dying over there, that prevailing Islamic dynamic takes over here on U.S. soil, so that future generations like those young boys who died will become future generations like the victims of Fort Hood and Lee Rigby on the streets of London, as we do nothing while extremists continue to invade and use the laws and freedoms our soldiers died for to take all of those freedoms away in the long term in the name of Islam.

Yesterday, at the gym while running on the treadmill, I was thinking:

Our soldiers died so I can and others here can do mindless, selfish things like work out at this gym and do it without wearing a burka or getting beheaded. And no one here is thinking about that. They’re thinking about Memorial Day sales and picnics and a day off. We are a lucky, but spoiled country. We don’t appreciate what we have, what our soldiers fought and died for, and it will come back to hurt us. They didn’t die for us to pay ten bucks and waste time watching garbage like “The Hangover Part III” and mindlessness like “Fast and Furious 6.” But that’s what America’s young generations are thinking about and spending their time and parents’ dollars on, NOT what this solemn weekend is supposed to be about. Heck, the solemnity doesn’t exist in Ameria, anymore, among younger generations and their parents who taught them it wasn’t important.

Then, on the way home, I stopped at a dollar store to buy some white vinegar (I pour some in the wash when I do laundry). In front of me in line to pay was a woman in a niqab–the Muslim full ninja outfit for women, so that this woman’s nose and chin won’t turn some out-of-control Muslim men into sudden rapists and so that those men don’t have to exercise an iota of control that we, here in Western civilization, expect modern men to exercise. And I see more and more and more of these women in niqabs in my neighborhood every single year. That’s because while our men our dying over there–have died over there in the thousands and maimed and lost limbs in the tens of thousands–and while our men over the centuries gave their lives, whether it was fighting the Nazis and Japanese or fighting each other to keep the Union together or fighting the British in the name of our independence, now it seems we have forgotten that sacrifice on a daily basis, as we do nothing to fight the future loss of all of that with the daily encroachment and spread of extremist Islam across American soil, from shore to shore.


After the women in the niqab left the dollar store, and as I was paying for my vinegar, I shared my internal vim and vinegar to the Black store clerk, a middle aged man who “Amened!” and shook in agreement with what I was saying. I said,

G-d, this makes me so angry. We’re about to memorialize our guys who died over there for them, and who decades earlier died elsewhere for us, and this woman and her full-face-veiled crap are spreading here for wildfire. And they died for that? So, that in future generations, her brand of cult will take over and erase all the gains those soldiers made for us in blood, giving their lives, getting blown up . . . all so that in future generations it will amount to nothing?! It can’t be.

So, if you are remembering the ultimate sacrifice these men made, whether it was at Lexington or Chelsea Creek, at Antietam or Gettysburg, on the beach at Normandy or at Iwo Jima, at Da Nang or the streets of Baghdad or Kabul, ask yourself: what are you doing to make sure that those deaths were not in vain? Are you doing anything to stop the cancerous Islamic threat and slow down its metastasis? If not, then your Memorial Day remembrance is just hollow and empty. You must do more. You must educate ignorant, naive, and/or politically correct friends and family. You must make sure that the deaths of our soldiers overseas and on U.S. soil over the centuries continues to mean something, that it wasn’t just in vain a few generations later because we were content and happy to just go to the gym, the dollar store, and the crappy movies, and to just get on with our lives. That’s not good enough. We must do more.

Or their lives–the lives that meant so much, that mean so much to the continuation of freedom and America as we know it–will in a couple of hundred years or so, will have been lost for nothing, or just a brief respite of Western civilization overtaken by those who hack soldiers to death on the streets of London, those who blow up Boston marathons, those who hijack planes and fly then into buildings or try to blow them up with their underwear or shoes.


Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

The lives of our fallen American heroes meant something. They mean something. They gave everything for us. The least we can do is give something so that their sacrificed lives still mean something in a couple hundred years, a few generations from now.

It means fighting immigration amnesty for tens of thousands of these women in full ninjas and their husbands, who are here illegally. They don’t deserve a path to citizenship after their people–their fellow co-religionists–blew up the men we remember today and took their lives. It means fighting against their infringement on our First Amendment rights and fighting to keep our Second Amendment rights solid and uninfringed by gun control, so that we can ensure that those First Amendment rights are protected. It means activism and talking ’til your blue in the face. It means not silently standing by as a women goes into your dollar store with everything but her pupils covered in the United States of America.

You must do something–anything–to continue to make the sacrifices of those we remember today, a sacrifice whose end goal still endures in America’s future.

More from former Navy SEAL Leif Babin:

In 2006, my SEAL Task Unit deployed to Ramadi, Iraq. Among the rubble-pile buildings, bomb craters and burned-out hulks of vehicles, we experienced firsthand the harsh realities of war. We fought alongside the U.S. Army’s Ready First Brigade of the First Armored Division to take Ramadi back from a brutal and determined insurgency.

Combat is hard. It is alarmingly violent, ear-shattering, dirty, exhausting and ugly. It is marked by chaos and confusion and self-doubt. But combat also highlights the determination and sacrifice—and courage—of those who persevere. Through such times, an unbreakable bond is formed with brothers-in-arms.

Those bonds were tested greatly as our task unit suffered the first SEAL casualties of the Iraq War: Marc Lee and Mike Monsoor. Later, Ryan Job died of wounds received in combat. These men were three of the most talented and capable SEALs I have known. They were also loyal friends. Their loss is deeply personal to their families and to their SEAL teammates. As Marc’s and Ryan’s platoon commander, I bear the crushing burden of responsibility. I will forever wish that I could somehow take their place.

As a result, Memorial Day is deeply personal—to me, as it is to any veteran, to any military family. It is a time of mixed emotion: solemn reflection and mourning, honor and admiration for those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country.


Navy SEAL Leif Babin

Let’s remember on Memorial Day—and every other day, for that matter—that America did not become a nation without a fight. Last week, I found myself in Washington, D.C., admiring a bronze statue of George Washington. The statue shows him as a general, astride a horse, sword drawn at the ready. This was Washington as a true American leader, inspiring those around him by showing that he too was willing to risk death for the cause of victory. The statue brought to mind the thousands of soldiers who marched with him into battle against the British, facing seemingly impossible odds.

It was not the Declaration of Independence that gave us freedom but the Continental Army. America was born from conflict, delivered by soldiers willing to pay with their blood the tremendous cost of freedom.

The dead did not wish to be martyred. They no doubt longed to return to their homes and families. But they believed in the “glorious cause,” something far greater than themselves. Despite knowing the dangers before them, they followed Gen. Washington into the fray even when victory seemed hopeless and the cause all but lost.

In America today, there are those who believe that under no circumstances is war the answer. Violence only begets more violence, we’re told. The unstated message: Nothing is worth fighting and dying for. History disagrees.

Knowing firsthand the hardships of combat gives me all the more reason to admire and stand in awe of those who marched with Washington and gave their lives for the United States of America. Most will never be depicted in bronze, but their sacrifices matter. The legions of American warriors since then who sacrificed their lives have not done so eagerly, nor have they done so blindly. They acted willingly because they believed in a great nation that is worth fighting and dying for.

Memorial Day is a living monument to them, a recognition of freedom’s cost. May we never take those sacrifices for granted.


Yes, America was born of conflict and war. Because our freedom and independence were worth fighting for. Worth killing for. Worth giving our lives for. But let’s make sure that the things–the freedoms and the country–those lives were given for continue to live on.

Today, will we just bend over, instead, as we lose our country, because we don’t want to offend anyone? Because we don’t want to stand up for what is right?

They gave their lives for what is right? We can at least give our voice and our energy for it. Otherwise, our nation will be lost. And that’s the real lesson of Memorial Day.

It means ensuring our government doesn’t treat Islamic terrorists with more respect than it treats those who gave their lives for our country – often like crap.

If we want Memorial Day to mean something, let’s stop kow-towing to Islam. Let’s make the day worthy of all those who fought to keep America strong and free.

Its high time we put our American family first. The sacrifices of our ancestors should never be forgotten!

NormanF on May 27, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    Debbie, thank you for your voice!!!! We all shall to stand up against this greatest danger to America – called left,progressive propaganda. It is seems to me as a total(almost) submission to evil islam already
    to me those signs not less …but more dangerous then even IRS etc…..sory for absurdity of my comparison ….but I am REALLY GETTING SCARY long time ago

    Living 2+ years in Seattle I shocked to see so many somalis,pakistanis and other muslims with garbs walking to grocery stores with their big families,cab drivers in down town praying behind a car on the road, during day light, in the view of all polite and “multiculturaly friendly” public

    Mike on May 27, 2013 at 8:45 pm

Debbie,thank you for your poignant article. I love my country and I’m a huge supporter of our Military. The Good Lord didn’t bless me so I’m instilling these virtues in my twin 7 year old nieces.My father would be very proud of me for I tell them the truth just you do and he did.Keep doing what you do.

Tammy Summers on May 27, 2013 at 2:31 pm

Thank you, Debbie, for this article. I am currently visiting here for three weeks, and I share your sentiments completely. Our soldiers (America/Canada) did not die in vain. Because of ancient promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and then Joseph, God has blessed us above all others so we can carry out his work in the world. That work seems to be pretty much accomplished as Christian/Judeo values decline and become scoffed at. Nevertheless, these promises will continue BUT that doesn’t prevent God’s judgment on his people at the hands of evil men. The current Islamic threat could only be resolved through supernatural intervention. How much good will suffer before it rises to destroy evil is anyone’s guess, but I am now getting more confident in a Messiah that will soon come to earth to carry out this work!

Raymond of Canada on May 27, 2013 at 2:57 pm

I have to ask people. What are we fighting for now? We have a president that wants to negate our 1st, 2nd, and 4th amendment rights. Look what was done to the AP and Fox reporter(s). Not just their rights, but the Fourth Amendment rights of their parents were violated.

Look at how politically correct speech codes in the workplace and on college campuses is stifling free speech. Look at how the public is being whipped up to limit First Amendment rights for organizations like the NRA.

Look at how our freedom to hire who we want is gone. Look at how our wealth is being redistributed to those who don’t work. Look at how the government wants to redistribute our savings.

Look at how white male heterosexuals are discriminated against, even in the U.S. military.

So what are the soldiers fighting for?

Jonathan E. Grant on May 27, 2013 at 3:40 pm


    Good question. I suggest you ask the same question about numerous other past wars, as well.

    Prometheus on May 28, 2013 at 9:16 am

Instead of honoring or troops and trying to preserve the traditions they fought for, we are doing the opposite. Not only are we attacking the traditions they fought for, but we are dishonoring the troops in a more direct way.

The social experimentation going on in the military is galling, and the phony standards of sexual harassment prevalent in civilian society have spread to the military. Just as women and gays in civilian life exaggerate, distort and lie about incidents many of which are innocent, in order to get a quick dollar, promotion, or some type of revenge, this is going on in the Armed Forces more and more.

The most common type of sexual problem in the military is all the pregnant women who didn’t belong there in the first place. Then there are the made-up, phony charges just like the ridiculous definitions of rape and sexual assault now occurring throughout the country.

Although real sexual assault is a crime and should be appropriately punished, much of it, to the extent it exists at all in the military,is caused by social experimentation. Much of it is exaggerated by the women, and unfortunately, much is exaggerated by our political misleaders. The husband of our former Secretary of State, a former President, disgracefully said he ‘loathed’ the military. Our current Secretary of State demonstrated against our country in time of war, standing in comaraderie next to a traitorous woman who noisily supported the Vietcong. Our current President is friends with people like Ayers and Dohrn, who have detested our country for their entire adult lives, not to mention Jerimiah Wright, and not to mention all the other despicable people he is friends with, or has participated with in scandal after scandal.

So instead of honoring our military, today, they are on a big campaign against ‘sexual assault’, in part because they continue to loathe the military, and in part to deflect from the current scandals. And to the extent that most people think about the Armed Forces today, they think, not about the things you wrote, but these ‘sexual scandals’. The liberals are finally getting a chance to go after the troops in the Armed Forces that they have despised ever since the 50s. If the Muslims don’t get them, the liberals will.

Little Al on May 27, 2013 at 3:42 pm

Well written Debbie, and I felt bad for you for standing behind that muslim woman infront of wearing the full-body burka, I see the same crap in my community on a regularly basis.

About a few weeks ago around where I live, I was going to a drug store around where I live, and I walked by three people (they looked middle eastern-Arabic), a man and two girls, the man dressed in a regular western clothing, while the two girls we’re dressed in full-burkas, Debbie, I said the same crap to myself what you said to that employee at that store where you live DS, and its not Dearbon, Michigan, Dearborn Heights, Michigan, or Paterson, New Jersey where I currently live.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on May 27, 2013 at 3:45 pm

For Debbie – here is a Memorial Day Guess The Religion Quiz:

Can you guess what words are NOT mentioned once in this New York Times article today?

Amazing, isn’t it? No wonder Europe is lost and why we are losing our country!

NormanF on May 27, 2013 at 4:40 pm

Words cannot express my gratitude to all of the service members that served and gave their lives to protect our freedoms. Thank you.

Sadly, I also can testify that the same holds true where I live. They have infiltrated all facets of government and have slowly chipped away at the American way of life. All of this has not happened by accident. What is truly sad is that we are at war with Crapistan, and they have opened two restaurants some two blocks away from my place of residence. The communists, which by the way they think that are smarter than everyone else, flock to this joint. Half of them are Jewish believe it or not. Go figure?

Anyway, Chaz Napolitano is not stock piling a couple of billion rounds and armored personnel carriers for nothing. Basic rights afforded to Americans no longer holds true. All it takes to be jailed now days, is to simply say something that the mainstream political establishment does not like or an overzealous DA or cop and one’s freedom can be taken away very quickly. I used to think this could never happen but it is.

People that do not acquiesce with this communist agenda will be singled out. They are already putting people on these lists. Think it cannot happen? It is happening, so be careful what you post because big sis trolls conservative sites in search of political dissidents or people that espouse conservative beliefs, are Christian or simply being white can do it because whites are perceived as a danger to the establishment.

AR on May 27, 2013 at 5:09 pm

10 people have now been arrested in the Drummer Lee Rigby Islamic terrorist attack incident:

What does this tell us – this wasn’t a sudden spur of the moment attack! It was well planned in advance.

There are no Islamic “lone wolf” terrorists.

NormanF on May 27, 2013 at 5:52 pm

    Well put, Norman. There is a whole support network facilitating these attacks. The ummah supports them with “charity,” if not in more direct ways.

    skzion on May 27, 2013 at 7:18 pm

      Yup – I should correct the mistaken impression Islamic terrorists don’t carry out attacks as individuals. They obviously do!

      What’s accurate to say as you pointed out, is there is an organized quality to Islamic terrorism that distinguishes it from other criminal acts and it has an extensive support network behind it.

      That’s why it unique because even Islamic terrorists operating alone can count on ideological indoctrination, money, arms and so forth from mosques and other elements of the Muslim community.

      And do we really want to import even more of them here?

      NormanF on May 27, 2013 at 7:29 pm

Very moving column, Debbie. I had some of the same thoughts.

skzion on May 27, 2013 at 7:15 pm

This happened last night – a 23 year old Jew was attacked by anti-Jewish assailants:

And people tell us that Islamophobia is our greatest civil rights problem! Yeah, sure. This video shows otherwise with an anti-Semitic assault on a young Jewish man on the streets of New York.

NormanF on May 27, 2013 at 7:23 pm

Yep, I feel the same way about the holiday and how most don’t appreciate it for what it’s about.
It’s also not encouraging to see the enemy all around the country enjoying rights that weren’t really meant for them to have. Especially concerning rules of engagement in this conflict. Anywhere.
I would bet that the constable in charge of the wounded savage prisoner at the hospital, might feel it’s his/her duty to actually protect that piece of trash. Just as I’ve read about some of the nurses tending to the wounded Boston scum bag bombers, feeling compassion for them. Their culture is really suited for this jihad, ours is not. Ours had better figure it out though.

samurai on May 27, 2013 at 7:44 pm

Debbie, thanks for this thoughtful commemoration of those who still represent amongst the best of us.
Without them we would not be who we are and without them we will have no say in who we become.

Zarus on May 27, 2013 at 7:59 pm

We should not forget their sacrifices, nor should we take lightly what they fought for.

Worry01 on May 27, 2013 at 8:01 pm

This morning, on FOXSaudi-News’ web site, there was a story about how budget cuts are affecting the upkeep at military monuments. It was about how they are decaying because of a lack of that upkeep. Stories like this are usually on the front page of their web site for at least two, three days.

That story is completely gone, but you can still read about how the RINO-In-Chief, Maverick John McCain snuck across the border in to Syria to show his support for the rebels. You can also read about how running back Adrian Peterson offended people with his comments on gay marriage, he’s not “with it,” or how Skankelina Jolie’s aunt died of cancer.

We have not done as Ben Franklin admonished, and kept the republic. We’re not even having a tug of war, we’re giving it away, and FOXSaudi-News is supposed to be among the “good guys.” Good chumps, maybe. Too cowardly to feature the story about how our nation’s monuments to war heroes are crumbling because of neglect.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on May 27, 2013 at 8:50 pm

We don’t care! Memorial Day, ladies and gentlemen, marks the unofficial beginning of summer in America.

Who remembers our veterans and their sacrifices? Our government has no interest in the history that made this nation the greatest on earth.

If our monuments are crumbling, we are to blame. How many visit the dead on this day? Until I lost my father, I used to make the trip every Memorial Day to visit my mother’s grave. Around me where soldiers buried who gave their lives for this country and there were a few Jewish soldiers buried there. No one seems to remember either the Christians or the Jews! Its a shame.

We need I think to look at our priorities. No country can preserve its culture and freedoms without paying tribute to its past. To paraphrase R. Hillel, “if we are not for ourselves, who will be for us?” In other words, who will remember us? This memory we must keep – we must keep it every day of the year!

And as Debbie wrote the real lesson of Memorial Day is to find our voice and do what is right. We can’t continue to pretend the things we take for granted will be here in the future if we don’t do everything we can in our power to preserve them. That is the whole point of who we are – that should be our ideal as a country!

NormanF on May 27, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Excellent post Debbie and I especially appreciate that you put in the quote from Navy Seal Leif Babin. I personally think the country is almost toast and if we don’t start the turn around in the next very few years — it will be toast.

Little Al: ” The liberals are finally getting a chance to go after the troops in the Armed Forces that they have despised ever since the 50s. If the Muslims don’t get them, the liberals will.”

I absolutely agree with that and the forces will become about as effective as several in Europe I could name. But what the hell we seem to be completely determined to become Europe in everything else.

RA2216 on May 27, 2013 at 11:32 pm

Hello Debbie, your article really has made me think about my service many years ago and having some guys I knew that were killed during my enlistment and after I got out. I really feel that as a country, fewer and fewer people really care about the veteran. I was a wee little lad when the Vietnam War was officially over and so I could not perceive the ill treatment our returning veterans received. However nowadays we do not have actual, direct in your face hostility except for those assholes at the Westboro Baptist Church dog turds. Now our veterans our just being ignored and shuffled around like memos from one department to another at the VA. I am not conspiratorial but at times I think this shuflfling around and ignoring that our veterans get is a way to frustrate them to the point they just say hell with it and go sleep under an overpass or make an encampment at a local creek. Since I was a young man, I constantly was hearing how the VA has a small budget or has to cut back on programs. I maybe wrong but seems our WW II vets were the last group of fighting men that was actually assisted, especially when it comes to the GI Bill. Now most what the GI Bill gives is barely enough to cover EITHER the tuition or the books but not both and forget the room and board. I still say thank you our vetrans of past and present wars and to the people who still know what Veteran’s Day really is about.

Mario on May 27, 2013 at 11:52 pm

Mario, there is no reason to take the apologist route in your statement about not being a conspiracy theorist. There are far too many people, including a number of the fine members of this great web site, who lead off sentences in that fashion.

GO AHEAD PEOPLE, SPEAK YOUR MINDS WITHOUT FEAR!!! It IS a conspiracy. I was a bit more than a wee lad during the middle and final stages of the Vietnam War. Barack Hussein Obama, MMM, MMM, MMM!!! is The Enemy Within, and he is not alone. He is a puppet of a very dangerous and subversive clan of intellectuals and power brokers, who figured out exactly how to break the power of the now DisUnited Snakes of Amerika, a long time ago.

It IS a conspiracy. I’ll never forget the day my 5th grade teacher, which would have been in late 1966 or early 1967, decided to teach us a lesson about Communism. She was objecting to our reaction to the word, informing us that “Communism is not necessarily a dirty word.” Sound familiar, anyone? She called for “one of the smartest kids in the school,” a 6th grader, who proceeded to teach us that Communism was really based on a principle we were already familiar with, that “all men are created equal.”

So, this young lady gave us the shpiel, way back 46 years ago. Communism is not necessarily a dirty word, because under Communism, nobody will have too much, everyone will have what they need, everyone will be the same, and no one will have any reason for any resentment, and we’ll all sit around in a circle, hold hands, teach the world to sing and buy the world a Coke. She said that Communism was really the “best system” of government, and the reason it had never worked before, was because “we’ve never really had the right people in place.” Who thinks my 5th grade teacher said that in a vacuum, and called that 6th grader in to straighten us out? Those type of events don’t happen that way.

Sounding more and more familiar, isn’t it, people? I watched as The Cultural Pancake Flip of 1964-1969 took shape. I saw the educational system turned upside down, I saw a complicit media become more and more mealy mouthed, and I heard the voices of my older brothers and sisters, the movers and shapers of the 60’s generation, who preached the “innate goodness” of all human beings.

Bullshit. That motherfucker Ariel Castro who imprisoned those girls in Cleveland has no innate goodness. Neither do these Islamic shitheads who carry out attack after attack, decade after decade, and claim to be ambassadors of a misunderstood religion of peace. There are millions of the Devil’s children running wild throughout this nation, also inhabiting high places in Amerikan society.

Americans learned to be softminded, Atheistic drones, and were also taught abject disrespect for the military and everything about it. When The Great StainMaker was elected, we had succeeded in anointing a Celebrity-In-Chief, who as previously mentioned by another poster, professed loathing for the military. Standard after standard throughout our culture was turned upside down, and today we have The Muslim-In-Chief, a nasty wolf in sheep’s clothing, a contemptuous, hateful, sneering, arrogant wunderkind of his masters, the American left.

Raise your hand if you think this kind of thing, which took several decades to emerge in America, happens by chance or coincidence. It is NO COINCIDENCE, it is indeed a CONSPIRACY.

Stand firm people, and don’t apologize. BE CONSPIRACY THEORISTS. It is ONLY when all of America realizes that this has been a horrible, nasty game of subterfuge, that we will stand a chance of winning back the country.

But unfortunately, we here on this web site and a few others out there in the rest of this “once great republic,” are too few and far between. The Bible says never tire of doing what is right. So don’t. And don’t apologize. BE A CONSPIRACY THEORIST, because that’s how this fucking mess happened.

God bless America, and God bless our various military services, who since the time of George Washington have fought to create and preserve liberty in the greatest nation the world has ever seen.

To all those who have served honestly and honorably throughout the history of the former USA, past, present and future. THANK YOU, and may The King Of The Universe, The Only God, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, raise you and all your loved ones up at an appointed time to eternal life in His Holy Kingdom.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on May 28, 2013 at 1:16 am


    Of course it’s a conspiracy—and that’s exactly why they have gone to lengths to demonize the notion of conspiracy theories!

    Your classroom experience regarding Communism was quite typical, although the seeds were planted with the fall of Joe McCarthy. For a short time, McCarthy was the voice of many Americans who noticed after WW2 that we had won the war and lost the peace.

    Had Robert Taft been nominated—and lived—things would have been much different. However, the Republicans sold out and nominated Eisenhower, who sadly was a tool. Look up Operation Keelhaul if you don’t believe me.

    The die was cast, opening the door to “It’s not true communism in the Soviet Union” interpretations–not to mention Big Govt expansion under Ike.

    AND–with the new revelations validating the long-held notion that George Patton was assassinated by the US Military/OSS, don’t fool yourself into thinking that this is anything new.

    Up to us, people. It’s up to us ….

    Jack on May 28, 2013 at 10:25 am

Our Veterans should be honored each and every day, not just on Memorial Day.
It’s time the world learned that jihad and martyrdom attacks trace back to core Islamic texts.
We should join together now to be heard before it’s too late.
A group with a name like the American Defense League-along the lines of the English Defense League (I’d like to hear from someone who is familiar with this group as I only have a general knowledge)
Congrats to Debbie on an excellent post!

Truth on May 28, 2013 at 7:46 am


With all due respect to dead and wounded soldiers, the real memorial now should be to what our country once was. Maybe, we can still get it back.

And while we’re at it–remembering what the leadership in the military used to be–before it became all PC. Truth be told, the military was *always* somewhat politically correct (how do you think Eisenhower got promoted?) but these days, it’s ridiculous.

Prometheus on May 28, 2013 at 8:44 am

That’s right Prometheus, absolutely, everything you said. And it was not untypical of the times at all, my classroom experience. Indoctrination. It was happening all around me. The Beat Generation’s influence on the culture was rampant, The Cultural Pancake Flip was in mid-swing, and let’s not forget one of the American left’s favorite lines. I’m sure you and everyone here knows it all too well. It’s a line coined by Eisenhower, and regurgitated by the left every time they want to smack anyone on the conservative side of things down.

“Beware of the military industrial complex.”

And here we are today, with a president who is cutting America’s balls off, basically disbanding the military. As Mike Savage has been quick to point out lately, something we’ve all seen before he started saying it, we are going to wake up some day in an America that will be unable to defend itself. That’s true, and the left loves it that way.

Of course, they won’t love it so much when they are being marched off to the death camps with everyone else. That day is coming frighteningly soon.

I’m afraid we are lost. Most people don’t even know WHY we have Memorial Day, formerly called Decoration Day. It is a day to recognize the men and women who have DIED defending America. Instead, most of America confuses it with Veteran’s Day. Living vets have their day. Memorial Day should be for remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

G-d bless you, Debbie and all that you do and say — I sometimes feel that I am the only one out there — so many people are just wired differently — like the 17+ people who filmed the soldier and just gawked — it took a french woman to rush in and intervene for 20 minutes until the police arrived — US & UK need to be more vigiliant — “be prepared” and get real.

Have things changed since Kipling wrote “Tommy Atkins”?

And hello Alfredo, yes we do increasingly seem to live in the world of George Orwell’s “1984”. And I am grateful to him for giving us the vocabulary in which to describe it. We have ThoughtCrime, and Newspeak. In my lifetime, I have seen The Ministry of War become The Ministry of Defence, civilian casualties become “collateral damage”, and the U.N. sending in “Peacekeepers” (who look pretty much like old fashioned soldiers to me). Oh, and lying has become “spin”.

And the Handbook of Political Correctness can make straightforward discussion of some issues impossible.

And you are right about the conspiracy. The whole world IS in the grip of a conspiracy – one more powerful than most people imagine.

The Christian Greek Scriptures say: “Put on the complete suit of armour from God that you may be able to stand firm against the machinations of the Devil; because we have a wrestling, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places.” – Ephesians 6:11,12

We have a fight against the world rulers of this darkness, the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places. Isn’t that why we need the “new heavens” – the incoming Kingdom of God? The whole world – the present system of things – lies in the power of Satan.

But our weapons are spiritual, not fleshly. We must not turn on each other, as that is exactly what Satan wants.

And, sadly, he has had a lot of success in getting us to do so. The Battle of Britain (WW2) was fought in the skies over my head – grey and rainy skies they are today too. And I am old enough now to know just how young those pilots were. I hope that our Creator, the God of Abraham, will remember them all when the time comes, and wake them up into the restored earthly Paradise – and earth ruled by the law of loving-kindness. An earth where we will “study war no more”.

Indeed, Sue, the leader of this conspiracy, as I have stated in other posts, is indeed Satan himself. Herbert W. Armstrong stressed the point that Satan influences humans in modern times in a silent fashion, broadcasting thought processes that guide our actions. Actions that we have no idea are in fact influenced by the father of evil itself.

But I have faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ, and though the world is indeed headed toward The Great Tribulation, the worst time of misery in the history of the human race, I believe firmly that part in Revelation where it says “And God shall wipe away every tear.”

Every tear, every bit of misery that the human race has ever suffered, will indeed be as nothing, not even a remembrance. And all forms of human government will pass away, as even the best forms, such as ours here in “this once great republic,” are unfortunately sooner or later brought down by human nature. And human nature is toward the flesh, or the influence of Satan. The Government of God will be perfect and everlasting, no more tears, only joy and light.

In his book The United States and Great Britain In Prophecy, Armstrong outlined clearly how we came to be the great nations we were, and why we are going out in the first round of WWIII. But no one should get the idea that it is because we have been more sinful than others, because the rest of the world will be in for even worse times when we are gone. But we will be taken out first, because then the evil factions who do not worship the Judeo-Christian God of The Bible, will be free to work their Satanic plans of world domination.

That is why this Muslim-In-Chief we have in the White House, the evil representative of the sons of Ishmael, is in place, to put an end to the only nations standing between some semblance of freedom and worldwide slavery. The sons of Ishmael think they will finally be getting their revenge on Isaac, but their plans will come to naught, however not before the entire world is plunged in to horrifying misery.

These are frightening times, and the disrespect and dismantling of the American military by its own “president” is the big step in the plan toward the darkness we face. But the God of The Bible, The Living Word of God, will come to put away all troubles, disease, poverty, strife, hunger and misery.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on May 28, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Alfredo, Sue The Pom is someone who will agree with you until the cows come home but when and IF the time comes to do anything, she will only sit back and pray to her false god (AND DO NOTHING ELSE) that she uses because she hates herself for being weak and selfish.

    Just thought you ought to know that. She comes here to get her kicks in a self-rubbing way that has NOTHING to do with her genitals but her weak, nutter mind. She thinks her religious facade fools others but it only fools her mirror.

    She’s a waste of time and a great example of a horrible example. She’s just one of a million of ‘Tribble’-like Poms that has the UK in their sad state they are in today.

    Skunky on May 28, 2013 at 6:14 pm

      Hmmmmmm, you mean, . . .

      she’s like the millions of Americans that have US in the sad state we’re in today???


      Alfredo from Puerto Rico on May 28, 2013 at 8:14 pm

I use the word “indeed” too much. I need to break that habit.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on May 28, 2013 at 1:56 pm

so what is the answer if we had the leaders we have now in 1941 we would have lost ww2 so now we have infiltration by enemies who are coming in the country legally that’s equal to letting in Nazis into America in 1942 so whats wrong our politicians have surrended to islam if we keep this up the whole world will become muslim

martin on May 29, 2013 at 11:54 am

Indeed, that is their intention. According to American intellectuals AND the low information crowd, it is wrong for America to be a superpower, we have used our military and corporations to dominate the world and steal natural resources from nations far and wide. In so doing, we have colonized and enslaved indigenous peoples throughout the globe with two cents a day for what Americans would demand $30/hr. for. Therefore, we get what we deserve.

When one makes the point about Islamic desires for world domination, these same people bring up The Crusades. Remember Rosie O’Donnell’s infamous comment on The Shpiew about “radical Christianity is as bad as radical Islam.” She received thunderous applause from the studio audience for that one. People who point out the burgeoning Islamic influence throughout the world, and knocking down nations in Africa like dominoes, they are called right wing extremists.

The die is cast, the propaganda is in place throughout the U.S. educational arena, media, political system, and the general population. Sit down with New Yorkers, particularly Jewish intellectuals, and have a discussion with them about these things. Oppose them in any way, and you will be browbeaten, subjected to vile name calling, and even threatened.

This is not the country I grew up in. How do we change that? One mind at a time is the only way. But unfortunately, I believe it is too late. However, because the Bible says never tire of doing what is right, we must each in our own way, in our own backyard, keep trying.

This is why I admire Debbie so much. She is one of the most ironheaded people I have ever heard of. And you know that it is only by the Grace of God that she is even alive. You know that she is marked for torture and a horrifying death. She makes Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and all the rest put together look like the Pillsbury Doughboy by comparison.

We must keep fighting, but you cannot change the minds of 250 million misguided people at once. I truly feel there are no more than 80 million right thinking people in this country. So, you see how hard the task is, and why the DisUnited Snakes of Amerika is where it is today.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on May 29, 2013 at 1:11 pm

Hello again Alfredo from Puerto Rico, I am impressed that you know that Satan and “the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places” are the real rulers of the world. So many people don’t. I didn’t myself for many years.

All the kingdoms of the world lie in his power. But not for too much longer.

And hello Martin – if we study Bible prophecy – in both the Hebrew and the Christian Greek Scriptures – then we can be sure that a rescue is very close. There is more happiness in store right here on the earth for obedient humankind than we can now imagine.

The true God, the God of Abraham, has promised us that he will “bring to ruin those ruining the earth”. Can’t we trust his promises? Has any one of them ever failed?

If you had created this beautiful beautiful earth, floating like a blue and white jewel in space, would you let it be ruined by the greed and violence of some men?

    For Sue The Pom (and fake Holy Roller).

    “The Faster She (Spoke Of Her Fake Christian Ways And) Honour, The Faster We Counted Our Spoons”.

    Skunky on May 29, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    Yes, studying the scriptures since September 10, 1984, a total of 28 cover to cover readings in three different translations, the King James, New King James, and New International Versions. I am currently in my 29th reading, this being the 1599 Geneva Bible, which I obtained several years ago via a special offer from Newsmax. I also received the pictorial History of George Washington, a beautiful volume which I haven’t had the chance to review yet. I got a very low introductory price on it, and it was worth that and a lot more.

    The 1599 Geneva Bible is very interesting, as it contains footnoted commentaries which are left out of other Bibles.

    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on May 29, 2013 at 8:55 pm

      Alfredo, what a treasure you are to be studying the Bible so seriously! It is God’s message to us, and yet people’s faith in it has been seriously undermined. I began my study of it over 20 years ago in my Northern hometown, using the Revised Standard, the Good News, and the King James translations. I haven’t heard of the Geneva Bible, but am impressed by your scholarly reading of it.

      My study continues to this day, and my favourite translation is the New World. For one thing, it restores God’s name throughout.

      And isn’t The Song of Solomon the most beautiful poem ever written?

      The poetry of the Bible is one of the many things that helped to convince me that it is what its many writers claim – the Inspired word of the true God, the God of Abraham. Because I thought that if it really is inspired by the Creator of speech and poetry then it must contain the greatest poetry ever written.

      And of course, it does.

      For example here is this perfect little poem from Isaiah:

      ”Listen! Someone is saying: “Call out!” And one said: “What shall I call out?” “All flesh is green grass, and all their loving-kindness is like the blossom of the field.  The green grass has dried up, the blossom has withered, because the very spirit of Jehovah has blown upon it. Surely the people are green grass.  The green grass has dried up, the blossom has withered; but as for the word of our God, it will last to time indefinite.” – Isaiah 40:6-8

      Isn’t that a lovely lovely way of putting it?

      Nobody in this forum is happy with the way things are in the world at the moment. And they should not be. But God’s promises stand. He will remove the wicked from the earth and restore Paradise. He gives us every reason to trust him.
