In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

Biden works identity politics into his Memorial Day statement

From the White House:

“On Memorial Day, we honor and reflect upon the courage, integrity, and selfless dedication of the members of our Armed Forces who have made the greatest sacrifice in service to our Nation. Whether in the waters of the Pacific, on the beachheads of Europe, in the deserts of the Middle East, or in the mountains of Afghanistan, American service members have given their lives to uphold our Constitution and to defend the safety and freedoms of our citizens. These patriots embody the best of the American spirit. They put themselves on the line for our shared values — for duty, honor, country — and they paid the ultimate price. Our Nation can never fully repay the debt we owe to our fallen heroes and their families.

“Jill and I know what it means to have a child serving in a war zone — the ever-present concern for your loved one and their fellow service members. Today and every day, we ask God to protect our troops. We also recognize the tremendous loss endured by America’s Gold Star families — the families of military members who died in conflict. We have a sacred obligation as a Nation to support those families and to always honor the memories of their loved ones.

“That is the vow we make each year on Memorial Day. Our Nation will never forget the courage and patriotism demonstrated by the countless women and men who laid down their lives so that we may continue to pursue a more perfect Union and to protect the unalienable rights Americans hold dear. They came from every part of the country, of every background and belief, united by a shared belief in our uniquely American creed — that all people are created equal. We will honor their legacy by continuing our work to live up to that commitment and to advance the values they lived and died to defend. We will continue to fight for equity and inclusion in our country and institutions, and ensure every qualified American who is willing to serve our country — regardless of race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, or background — has a fair and equal opportunity to do so.

 

Trump’s statement was politics-free:

On this Memorial Day, we remember the fallen heroes who took their last breaths in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred freedoms. The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism has no equal in human history. On distant battlefields, in far-off oceans, and high in the skies above, they faced down our enemies and gave their lives so that America would prevail. They made the supreme sacrifice so that our people can live in safety and our Nation can thrive in peace. It is because of their gallantry that we can together, as one people, continue our pursuit of America’s glorious destiny.

 

We owe all that we are, and everything we ever hope to be, to these unrivaled heroes. Their memory and their legacy is immortal. Our loyalty to them and to their families is eternal and everlasting.

 

America’s warriors are the single greatest force for justice, peace, liberty, and security among all the nations ever to exist on earth. God bless our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Airmen, and Marines. We honor them today, forever, and always.

  1. I read President’s Trump entire statement. As to corrupt biden’s statement, I only read what was in bold which is a bunch of crock. The clown said “qualified American” which means not ALL Americans but only those people (including illegals) who THEY consider as “qualified”. As to “fair and equal” opportunity, this is also crap. We all know many Americans are not given a “fair and equal” opportunity because of “diversity” quotas. Americans who are best qualified for a position do not get the position because they are of the wrong color, race, ethnic background or otherwise “privileged”.

    1. Like you, I prefer Trump’s statement. I’m sitting next to a veteran who survived the Vietnam war as a medic. He never referred to himself as blessed for surviving the conflict, rather as lucky. My husband has always said, “why would I refer to myself as blessed and the person blown away next to me not?”

      Biden hangs his military hat on his son Beau. Pathetic. His true feelings are revealed in his tweet, “Stay cool this weekend, folks!”

    2. Beautifully said JG. We are the “unqualified” Americans that Biden was referring to. Those of us who support the rule of law, believe a man cannot become a woman, and we love our country.

      God bless all those who fought and died in battle, and may he comfort their families who will forever mourn them.

  2. Did he ever punish Hunter, in any way, for getting kicked out of the military after one month, and for cocaine use, no less? And that, after receiving both an age waiver, and a prior drug use waiver?

    Regardless, should we really have expected aught less from the First Sock Puppet? Divide and rule is the only strategy the Marxocrats possess. It can grow exceedingly tiresome, but if one treats it as political elevator music, one can get along with minimal elevations of one’s blood pressure.

    Were Americans any less patient, however, some of the more hurried of the Marxocrats would, pour l’encouragement les autres, already have heard a cry of “Aristo, aristo, a la lanterne!”

    How long the present condition of belligerent coexistence can be maintained in America, only Providence can know. The history, however, is not encouraging. The events which led to the French Revolution, are rhyming with current affairs in America a little too cleanly for comfort.

    And that current events in France (!!!) are concurrently developing uncomfortably pre-revolutionary overtones, seems like some manner of Divine practical joke…assuming that somebody up there isn’t setting up a shaggy dog story.

    1. Exceptionally interesting thoughts you’ve shared darkangel. I agree with you when you say history is not encouraging. War, bloody revolutions, suffering, pain and destruction have been, tragically, one constant throughout history. Today’s “modern” world is no exception. I would argue it’s getting worse because of the much increased population (therefore more suffering), sophisticated technology and other factors.

      As to the Divine, yes one would raise questions, it’s human Nature. When over 5 million Jewish people and over 5 million others were brutally gassed to death, the question raised was “Where was God?”. It’s all a mystery to which I have no answer or hypothesis. The only thing I can say is that He knows what He is doing; I don’t, I am only human. I need Him to survive if not in body then in my Spirit. In end – and this is my personal belief – we all need Him whether we are aware of it consciously or not.
