We must especially beware of that small group of selfish men who would clip the wings of the American eagle in order to feather their own nests.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, January 6, 1941
Donald Trump libeled the United States in an all caps post that evidenced his narcissism, madness, arrogance, ignorance and corruption.
There is not a single elected Republican member of the US House or US Senate who has risen to denounce and condemn his slander. There is not a single one that has risen in defense of the United States.
Why? What are they afraid of?
It is appalling. The silence conveys sloth, decay and societal corruption in the eyes of America’s adversaries and enemies. They interpret what they see as weakness, and weakness always invites predation.
Slightly more than 85 years ago, the world’s democracies were evaluated as weak, corrupt, “Jew-infested” and crippled. An alliance of militarism, fascism and dictatorships sought to overturn the world order, and establish a new one in which human misery and slavery were to be the backbone of their triumph. They were blind, and in the end, they were annihilated by a vast coalition of free men and women.
The war that they instigated remains the greatest tragedy in the history of human civilization. The world that emerged from the ashes has not been freed of misery, despotism or oppression, but more people live in freedom and prosperity than at any time in history because of the triumph of the Allied powers who fought to preserve human dignity and freedom.
Thousands of miles from the Washington, DC, reality show, the Russian war criminal Vladimir Putin and Chinese President for Life Xi Jinping have met, and declared their intention to topple the US-led global order.
The world order foreseen by China and Russia is something that will plunge civilization towards the darkness. The abyss they seek to take the world over leads to the destruction of human freedom and dignity The Russian and Chinese states
are ruthless and savage. They have embraced barbarism, murder, torture, organ harvesting, child kidnapping, rape, murder and lies as their national values. They are predator states that seek confrontation because they despise the concepts around which the US-led system is organized.
