Churchill and socialism



Image result for churchill images
Here is a great quote by Winston Churchill:

"The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries."

Shades of Churchill's 'Iron Curtain Speech'



(My American Thinker post)

It was a remarkable speech. PM Netanyahu spoke clearly, forcefully, and eloquently about the nuclear deal. This is one of those "must-watch speeches" that comes along once a generation.

It reminded us of another statesman who came to the U.S. many years ago. It was on March 5, 1946 that the then former PM Winston Churchill of the UK spoke to the American people about the Soviet threat. Mr. Churchill did not speak to a joint session but the impact was awesome:
"Churchill, who had been defeated for re-election as prime minister in 1945, was invited to Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri where he gave this speech. 
President Harry S. Truman joined Churchill on the platform and listened intently to his speech. 
Churchill began by praising the United States, which he declared stood “at the pinnacle of world power.” 
It soon became clear that a primary purpose of his talk was to argue for an even closer “special relationship” between the United States and Great Britain -- the great powers of the “English-speaking world” -- in organizing and policing the postwar world. In particular, he warned against the expansionistic policies of the Soviet Union. 
In addition to the “iron curtain” that had descended across Eastern Europe, Churchill spoke of “communist fifth columns” that were operating throughout western and southern Europe. 
Drawing parallels with the disastrous appeasement of Hitler prior to World War II, Churchill advised that in dealing with the Soviets there was “nothing which they admire so much as strength, and there is nothing for which they have less respect than for military weakness.”
Like Mr. Churchill, the prime minister of Israel praised the alliance between the two countries, thanked the U.S. for its sacrifices in World War II, and explained the threat in exquisite detail.   

Of course, President Obama was not there and VP Biden was down in Uruguay at a presidential inauguration. There were several Democrats missing, a rather silly display of political pique.

It once again makes you wonder about President Obama's instincts or the people that he listens to.

What if President Obama had taken advantage of this opportunity to make his case for the nuclear deal?What if President Obama had embraced the visit? What if he did a joint press conference with the prime minister and assured this deal was good for all, especially Israel?


Instead, President Obama looks small and petty. He looks like a man who was avoiding the debate or hiding the truth of the deal with Iran.

My guess is that the nuclear deal is dead. You can delete another "legacy item" from President Obama's accomplishments.

1874: Winston Churchill was born

churchill

We love “leadership” and great leaders to run our countries.   Today, we remember Winston Churchill, one of the giants of the 20th century who was born on this day in 1874:
“Churchill came from a prestigious family with a long history of military service and joined the British Fourth Hussars upon his father’s death in 1895. During the next five years, he enjoyed an illustrious military career, serving in India, the Sudan, and South Africa, and distinguishing himself several times in battle. In 1899, he resigned his commission to concentrate on his literary and political career and in 1900 was elected to Parliament as a Conservative MP from Oldham. In 1904, he joined the Liberals, serving in a number of important posts before being appointed Britain’s First Lord of the Admiralty in 1911, where he worked to bring the British navy to a readiness for the war he foresaw.
In 1915, in the second year of World War I, Churchill was held responsible for the disastrous Dardanelles and Gallipoli campaigns, and he was excluded from the war coalition government. He resigned and volunteered to command an infantry battalion in France. However, in 1917, he returned to politics as a cabinet member in the Liberal government of Lloyd George. From 1919 to 1921, he was secretary of state for war and in 1924 returned to the Conservative Party, where two years later he played a leading role in the defeat of the General Strike of 1926.
Out of office from 1929 to 1939, Churchill issued unheeded warnings of the threat of German and Japanese aggression.
After the outbreak of World War II in Europe, Churchill was called back to his post as First Lord of the Admiralty and eight months later replaced the ineffectual Neville Chamberlain as prime minister of a new coalition government. In the first year of his administration, Britain stood alone against Nazi Germany, but Churchill promised his country and the world that the British people would “never surrender.” He rallied the British people to a resolute resistance and expertly orchestrated Franklin D. Rooseveltand Joseph Stalin into an alliance that eventually crushed the Axis.
In July 1945, 10 weeks after Germany’s defeat, his Conservative government suffered an electoral loss against Clement Attlee’s Labour Party, and Churchill resigned as prime minister. He became leader of the opposition and in 1951 was again elected prime minister.
Two years later, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his six-volume historical study of World War II and for his political speeches.
In 1955, he retired as prime minister but remained in Parliament until 1964, the year before his death.”
There are several lessons from Churchill’s life:
1) Failure is a part of life.  Mr Churchill failed but never gave up;
2) “Call out evil”, as he did over and over again when he spoke about Hitler in the 1930’s; and,
3) Take time for your hobbies, from writing to painting.  
Winston Churchill was a giant of a man.  I hope that the young people are reading about his life and how he used words.

Another anniversary for The Warren Commission

A post from 2015:
A few weeks ago, we got together with some friends for another Saturday night of good food and conversation.
We discussed the subject of another movie about the Kennedy assassination that was being filmed around Dealy Plaza.  Naturally, a good family friend raised the conspiracy question.  I stayed a bit quiet, because another “who shot JFK” conversation is the last thing that I want to talk about.
However, I had to say something when it came around to me.    
I said that I believe that Oswald did it, or pretty much the official conclusion.
A week after President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, his successor, President Johnson, created the Warren Commissionto investigate the murder:
During its almost year-long investigation, the Warren Commission reviewed reports by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Secret Service, Department of State and the attorney general of Texas. It also poured over Oswald’s personal history, political affiliation and military record. Overall, the Warren Commission listened to the testimony of 552 witnesses and even traveled to Dallas several times to visit the site where Kennedy was shot. The commission concluded that Oswald had acted alone and that the Secret Service had made poor preparations for JFK’s visit to Dallas and had subsequently failed to sufficiently protect him.
We’ve had a lot of books and films since the commission made that conclusion.  I remember that a lot of authors brought their papers and books to a JFK conference held around here in 1993, or the 30th anniversary.  I heard some of their presentations.  I even heard comments about a minister who spoke with Jack Ruby at the Dallas city jail.
Some of the authors made strong cases, although I still don’t know how the conspirators could keep a secret that long.  In other words, it’s hard to believe that so many people could stay quiet.
Some of movies were just bizarre and irresponsible, such as Oliver Stone’s JFK.  I remember watching the movie in 1991 and going home furious.  The movie was absurd, a hate piece against the U.S.
One of my favorite books, and the one that persuaded me that The Warren Commission got it right, was Case Closed by Gerard Posner.  As I read in a recent book review:
Like Mr. Posner, I firmly believe that Oswald, by himself, was responsible for the murders of JFK and Dallas city policeman J.D. Tippit. And while re-reading “Case Closed” recently, I came across many outstanding hunks of fascinating text, including a good collection of direct quotes from various individuals that were placed into the book by author Posner in his efforts to provide the reader with a complete picture of Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who was charged with killing America’s 35th President in Dallas.
I’ve listed some of what I think are this book’s most intriguing passages and quotes below, which give a good general indication as to the type of person Lee Oswald truly was (i.e., a strange, disconnected, secretive, violent, and abusive young man who embraced Communism and hated the American society he was living in).
In other words — Lee Harvey Oswald was the exact type of individual who might just have had an urge to take his mail-order rifle with him to work one day (a day when the President’s motorcade was scheduled to pass right in front of the building he worked in) and fire a few shots at JFK from a secluded sixth-story perch.
The evidence in the John F. Kennedy murder case, in fact, tells the world that Mr. Oswald did that very thing on Friday, November 22, 1963.
We will never know 100%, because life is that way.  However, put me down as one who believes that the Warren Commission got it right.  It’s a testament to the integrity of the commission, made up by very good people, including future president Ford.

November 1981 and still talking about Natalie Wood's death


How did Natalie Wood die or drown?   Was she killed or what?

It's a great mystery but some people are still looking for clues.


Will they re-open the case?   Can they re-open case?   We will follow the story.

1967: The Beatles, "Hello Goodbye" and many Thanksgivings ago!


The Beatles released the "Magical Mystery Tour" album just in time for Christmas 1967.

It was the soundtrack of a British TV show. However, the BBC special was not shown in the US. (You can buy a video copy!)

Side A was the soundtrack music.

Side B was a compilation of 1967 singles. 

It introduced us to "Hello Goodbye", their new single and one of their most popular songs ever recorded by the group. The song was presented to the country on The Ed Sullivan Show, the Sunday night after Thanksgiving.    It was released as a 45 prior to the release of the LP.  Eventually, it hit # 1 the last week of 1967.

Happy # 62 Dave Righetti


We say happy birthday to Dave Righetti born in San Jose, California on this day in 1958.

Dave broke with the Yankees in 1979 but did not join the rotation until 1981.   He spent the 1980's with New York saving over 200 games.    

Unfortunately, he missed the pennant teams but did pitch in the 1981 post season when he was also voted AL Rookie of the Year.

On July 4, 1983, Dave pitched a no hitter against the Red Sox.   He was 10-3 at that point and finished 14-8, or his best season as a starter.

He was the Giants' pitching coach and a part of the team that won The World Series in 2010, 2012 & 2014.

We remember Bruce Lee (1940-1973)


The amazing Bruce Lee was born in San Francisco on this day in 1940.  He became a legend in the early 1970’s and then suddenly died in 1973.  

Along the way, his movies became hugely popular and continue to over 40 years after his death.   He did not make a lot of movies but they were great indeed.

His story is rather interesting:   
Lee was born while his father, a Chinese opera star, was on tour in America. The Lee family moved back to Hong Kong in 1941. Growing up, Lee was a child actor who appeared in some 20 Chinese films; he also studied dancing and trained in the Wing Chun style of gung fu (also known as kung fu). In 1959, Lee returned to America, where he eventually attended the University of Washington and opened a martial-arts school in Seattle. In 1964, he married Linda Emery, who in 1965 gave birth to Brandon Lee, the first of the couple’s two children. In 1966, the Lees relocated to Los Angeles and Bruce appeared on the television program The Green Hornet (1966-1967), playing the Hornet’s acrobatic sidekick, Kato. Lee also appeared in karate tournaments around the United States and continued to teach martial arts to private clients, including the actor Steve McQueen.In search of better acting roles than Hollywood was offering, Lee returned to Hong Kong in the early 1970s. He successfully established himself as a star in Asia with the action movies The Big Boss (1971) and The Way of the Dragon(1972), which he wrote, directed and starred in. Lee’s next film, Enter the Dragon, was released in the United States by Hollywood studio Warner Brothers in August 1973. Tragically, Lee had died one month earlier, on July 20, in Hong Kong, after suffering a brain edema believed to be caused by an adverse reaction to a pain medication. Enter the Dragon was a box-office hit, eventually grossing more than $200 million, and Lee posthumously became a movie icon in America.
Like Hendrix and Morrison, you can identify his face in a heart beat.

Remember The Supremes!



Our family came to the US in 1964. It didn't take long for my brother and I to get into Top 40 radio, which is what they used to call AM radio stations back then.

Between 1964 and 1967, the US music charts were dominated by British bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Dave Clark 5, The Animals and so on.   It was called "The British Invasion"!

Who stood up for the US during that period?  What US group battled the British for the top of the charts?

The answer was The Supremes from Detroit with 12 # 1 songs, many gold records and regular TV appearances.  They were huge! 

Who else but The Beatles had that many # 1 songs? Again, it was The Supremes.

They were Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard. They used to call it "The Motown Sound"!

Thanksgiving is about family





Image result for retro family thanksgiving images

Our first Thanksgiving in the US was 1964.  It was a pleasant experience but my dad had to work at the hotel.  He had a night job and we needed the money.

Over the years, my mother "Cubanized" the meal with "yuca" and black beans.  Our turkey has always had a Cuban flavor and everybody is happy.

Most of all, we are happy to get together and say thanks for living in the US.

Have a very nice Thanksgiving Day with your family & friends!


We have a few things to be thankful for

Image result for thanksgiving pilgrim images

Back in 1941, President Roosevelt made it official:  it’s the 4th Thursday of November.
In my case, I did not know a thing about Thanksgiving when our family settled here in the fall of 1964.  We landed in Miami and made our way to Wisconsin a week later.  
By mid-November, or roughly two months into our American experience, I saw kids in school putting “turkey posters” about the upcoming holiday.  
I asked my mother.  She had no idea, too.  I asked my father and he said that it was something about “giving thanks”.
Finally, Miss Jones, that grade-school teacher I was blessed with, sat me down and explained the full story, from the ship crossing the ocean, to the landing at Plymouth Rock, to the terrible first winter, and eventually a day to say thanks for surviving it all.
It did not take long for me to get into the Thanksgiving mood.   
We Cubans always had lots of reasons to give thanks.  
We survived communism.  We had a chance to start all over again in the U.S.  Giving thanks for a second chance was something that our family knew quite well.
Today, Thanksgiving is my favorite American holiday.  It confirms that this land was settled by self-reliant people who faced adversity and grew stronger.
So I say thanks for everything, from my wonderful parents, brother and sister, wife and three sons, great friends, and all of you who check me out on AT.   I may not agree with all of your comments, but I say thanks!
Happy Thanksgiving and we will go back to the political stuff tomorrow.

Thank you Sarah: The inspiring story of how Thanksgiving began



Image result for sarah josepha hale thanksgiving images
As much as possible, I try to learn something new about US history.   It's a combination of natural interest and the reality that I wasn't born here.   In other words, there are a lot of stories that I didn't hear about when I was a kid.   For example, I did not know the one about Washington's cherry tree!

A few weeks ago, I learned about Sarah Josepha Hale, the lady who wrote to President Lincoln to make our current Thanksgiving Day a reality.   

Let's recall the story:    
The outbreak of war in April 1861 did little to stop Sarah Josepha Hale’s efforts to create such a holiday, however. She continued to write editorials on the subject, urging Americans to “put aside sectional feelings and local incidents” and rally around the unifying cause of Thanksgiving. And the holiday had continued, despite hostilities, in both the Union and the Confederacy.
In 1861 and 1862, Confederate President Jefferson Davis had issued Thanksgiving Day proclamations following Southern victories.
Abraham Lincoln himself called for a day of thanks in April 1862, following Union victories at Fort Donelson, Fort Henry and at Shiloh, and again in the summer of 1863 after the Battle of Gettysburg.
Shortly after Lincoln’s summer proclamation, Hale wrote to both the president and Secretary of State William Seward, once again urging them to declare a national Thanksgiving, stating that only the chief executive had the power to make the holiday, “permanently, an American custom and institution.”
Whether Lincoln was already predisposed to issue such a proclamation before receiving Hale’s letter of September 28 remains unclear. What is certain is that within a week, Seward had drafted Lincoln’s official proclamation fixing the national observation of Thanksgiving on the final Thursday in November, a move the two men hoped would help “heal the wounds of the nation.”
Maybe Thanksgiving would have happened without Sarah Josepha Hale's editorials and letters.   It appears that President Lincoln had such a day in mind to heal the nation. 

Nevertheless, it took a little push from this amazing lady to move the issue on the president's agenda.  It confirms that one person can make a difference, especially if your heart is in the right place.

So I'm thankful this year that I learned a new story about the US.    Wonder what I will learn about next?    It's an amazing country and people.


Happy Thanksgiving!

1988: A Thanksgiving Message from President Reagan


Image result for reagan thanksgiving images
Another Thanksgiving and we remember President Reagan. 

Like most two term presidents, Reagan gave 8 messages. They were memorable and full of Reagan's optimism and religious convictions. 

In 1988, Pres. Reagan delivered his last message. It was a few weeks after VP Bush carried 41 states.

This is what Pres. Reagan said Thanksgiving 1988:    
"In this year when we as a people enjoy the fruits of economic growth and international cooperation, let us take time both to remember the sacrifices that have made this harvest possible and the needs of those who do not fully partake of its benefits.
The wonder of our agricultural abundance must be recalled as the work of farmer who, under the best and worst of conditions, give their all to raise food upon the land.
The gratitude that fills our being must be tempered with compassion for the needy.
The blessings that are ours must be understood as the gift of a loving God Whose greatest gift is healing.
Let us join then, with the psalmist of old:O give thanks to the Lord, call on His name, Make known His deeds among the peoples!
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him, Tell of all His wonderful works!
Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
NOW, THEREFORE, I, RONALD REAGAN, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 24, 1988, as a National Day of thanksgiving, and I call upon the citizens of this great Nation to gather together in homes and places of worship on that day of thanks to affirm by their prayers and their gratitude the many blessings God has bestowed upon us."
Two months later, President Reagan left Washington and flew west to his retirement in California.   He wrote a great book about his two term presidency.

Thanksgiving 2003: President Bush made a surprise visit to Iraq

Related image
Back in 2003, President Trump showed up in Iraq for Thanksgiving.   It was a great story and must have been quite a treat for the soldiers enjoying some turkey.

For security reasons, the President's trip was such a secret that even First Lady Laura Bush, and his parents, were not told about it.    The announced plan was a trip to Crawford, Texas, but Air Force One turned east to Iraq.

A few years later, President Bush wrote about Iraq in a great book.

Thanksgiving 1863: President Abraham Lincoln

Image result for lincoln 1863 images
This is what President Lincoln said in 1863:   
"A Proclamation.

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. 


To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.


In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. 


Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. 


Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. 


No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. 


They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. 


I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the 


Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.


By the President: Abraham Lincoln






2003: President Bush and Thanksgiving in Iraq


Image result for president bush iraq thanksgiving imagesSeveral years ago, I became fascinated with presidential proclamations, from President Washington in 1789, President Lincoln during the Civil War, and President Reagan in 1988.  
So let’s remember one president who spent Thanksgiving in a very unique way.
We’ve had some talk lately about President Bush and the decision to take out Saddam Hussein.  I continue to support the action. 
North Korea is what happens when you leave people in power who have or look to have weapons of mass destruction. The Middle East would look a lot different today if Iraq was conducting nuclear tests or threatening to hit Israel or others.
Back in 2003, President Bush showed up in Iraq for Thanksgiving. It was a great story and must have been quite a treat for the soldiers enjoying some turkey:  
Mr. Bush sneaked out of Crawford on Wednesday in an unmarked car, then flew to Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington, where a few advisers and a small number of reporters sworn to secrecy joined him. They then flew on to Baghdad International Airport, arriving around dusk.
He spent 2 hours 32 minutes in the country, dining with the chief United States administrator there, L. Paul Bremer III, and sharing Thanksgiving wishes with about 600 troops at an airport hangar. Mr. Bush actually helped serve dinner to the troops, who had been told they would be dining with Mr. Bremer and with Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, commander of coalition forces in Iraq.
He also met with four members of the Iraqi Governing Council.
The trip must have raised enormous concerns for the president’s security team. A DHL cargo plane using the same airport Saturday was struck in the wing by a shoulder-fired missile, forcing it to make an emergency landing. Such missiles, reliant on visual contact with their targets, are considered ineffective after dark, however.
For security reasons, the President’s trip was such a secret that even First Lady Laura Bush and his parents were not told about it. It must have been quite a surprise when plans changed from Crawford to Iraq.
Many years later, I say thanks that President Bush took out Saddam Hussein and prevented Iraq from turning into North Korea.  
My guess is that Iraq’s neighbors share my sentiments.

1942: "Casablanca" premiered in New York






On this day in 1942, the movie "Casablanca" premiered in New York City.   

It went on to become one of the greatest films ever.   The Bogart-Bergman combination was phenomenal.   They just had great screen chemistry.  Wonder if they made any other movies?
