Wisdom from the Realm

Invested In Defeat

with 20 comments

There was a time in history that if any citizen betrayed their country they would be labeled a traitor and could expect a long prison sentence or death. I suppose if you really think about it betraying your country is the most cowardly act a person can commit, especially during a time of war. Unfortunately this is lost on much of the democrat party. As citizens, we must ask why would they rather lose a war than give a sitting president credit for a victory? Is feeding their lust for power and revenge more important than a success for the nation? The answer can be found in their actions.

“From hell’s heart I stab at thee, for hates sake I spit my last breath at thee!” The democrat left is blind to the dangers presented by foreign threats because they are engaged in a battle with the president. They perceive that their personal need for this president to fail is greater than our need as a nation to defeat the global jihad that has washed upon our shores. Because of hates sake they are blind to their duty and would rather lose a war if that’s what it takes to destroy the white whale.

How else are we to interpret the actions of the democrat party? They are doing everything possible to erode the confidence of the people and the military, all the while giving aid and comfort to the enemy. What does it say about people when they threaten to cut off funding to the very troops they send to fight a war? It’s bad enough to force our military to fight in a politically correct manner thus insuring defeat, but to intentionally set up a slow bleed is treasonous.

Let me say this in a way that even a politician can understand. If you Democrat and Republican leaders want to have a pecker contest it’s time you started using your own. We the people no longer wish to participate in your twisted games. If ours is a cause to be championed then lets enter it to win, but to pull the rug from under us when victory is in sight is the cruelest thrust of all.

On your quest for wisdom you must understand that running from your problems is never the answer. You must face them head on and defeat them or you will be running the rest of your life. Make no mistake this enemy is methodical and not to be underestimated. You keep messing around with these people and they will kill us all.

  1. Hi LC,

    “the idea that we’re going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong.” Howard Dean

    Rep. John Murtha (D-PA): “We can’t win this.” (Rep. John Murtha, Congressional Record, 6/15/06, p. H4028)

    Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI): “[The terrorist surveillance program is] actually more significant than the very serious events that occurred at Watergate.” (Fox’s “Fox News Sunday,” 4/2/06)

    Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) Called Iraq War “Mission Impossible.” (John McCaslin, “Inside The Beltway,” The Washington Times, 8/17/06)

    But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) went further, publicly hinting she will push binding legislation that would begin bringing U.S. troops home from Iraq. “I believe that you’ll see initiatives on the floor to this effect: that we have this year in which we should be able to drastically reduce the number of troops,” she said in an interview broadcast on National Public Radio yesterday.

    They might as well chant “Death to America” with half the middle east.

    I agree, minimizing the terror threats here at home, barring heroic activity by our security angencies, only further emboldens those who would end life as we know it in America.

    I’m convinced terror attacks, other than spontaneous jihadi syndrome occasionally acted out such as Utah last week, have been averted because the citizenry is armed, and unauthorized violent retribution will be carried out.

    Thanks for your post!

  2. Hi Hank

    As usual you have done your homework and are spot on.

    I still find it incredible that the democrat leadership could actually think a loss in a war is a victory for them. What blind, arrogant and pathetic creatures they have become.

  3. Hi LC,

    That’s a good strong post, and the Democrats need a good strong sign. The best one, in my opinion, would be a grass roots movement to legalize dueling. Not only would this make the likes of Pelosi or Kennedy be more careful of what spews from their mouths, it would do much to restoring civility and politeness to our country.

  4. Hi Grit

    In order to participate in a duel there is a certain amount of courage involved. I doubt Kennedy and Pelosi could muster enough courage between them to insure more than target practice.

    I’ve been trying to discover the secret you have hidden on your site. I have an answer but it doesn’t seem like something you might consider a secret, so I continue the search… any hints?

  5. Hi LC,

    Well, Kennedy has killed before, although not in an honorable way.

    As to the secret, all I can say is that I am evil, in some peoples’ eyes, and secretive. I would point out, on a more kindly note, that I never said it is hidden on our site, exactly. The Brit and I are counting on you and Jayne to track our secret to its source.

  7. Hi LC,

    Oh, I am definitely a rascal, but also evil. I see no reason that these traits can’t coexist.

    As to the hidden secret, it I just came out and told you, it would reek of conspiracy, and we can’t have that, now can we?

    OK, so you’re an evil rascal. Why am I not surprised by that?

    The last hint was very helpful and hopefully places me on the correct side of the ocean.

  9. Whatever happened to a society where you could have divergent views on what was best for the social aspects of society, but were generally unified towards issues of national defense.

    In Memorium of:
    Daniel Patrick Monyhan
    Sam Nunn
    Henry “Scoop” Jackson
    President John F. Kennedy
    Tip O’Neill
    JFK
    Harry Truman
    FDR

  10. Excellent post, LC.

    I wonder what those democrats would have squawked when Abraham Lincoln was having authors arrested for dissent to the war because their activities were “dangerous to the Union.” What they were doing pales in comparison to the regular destructive reporting by today’s media. Today’s media would have been shot for treason and betraying military movements.

  11. Hi avoiceofreason – Welcome to the Realm

    Yes I agree, what a wonderful time in US history when we were able to talk over problems and find solutions. Today if you disagree the PC police will attempt to personally destroy you for not having your mind right.

    I find that I must disagree with at least one of the people on your list. FDR is the one that introduced the seeds of socialism into our society. His lack of vision is directly responsible for much of the government oppression we are immersed in today.

  12. Hi Lone Drifter – Welcome to the Realm

    Oh yes today’s media, what a disgrace. Why would an enemy need a spy organization or disinformation office when our media will gladly spread their propaganda or deliver harmful information at no charge.

    It seems such great sport for them to help destroy this country’s traditions day by day and issue by issue. Shot for treason – I can live with that.

  13. Hi, L.C.

    Good post.

    As for “They are doing everything possible to erode the confidence of the people and the military, all the while giving aid and comfort to the enemy,” that goes for the rest of the democrat (not “democratic”) party.

    Their domestic activities outstrip their foreign by a huge margin and go largely unreported in the MSM.

    Yes, we are at war. Pogo was right.

    You are right, there is nothing democratic about the democrat party. They became a stranger to the principles of democracy long ago.

  18. Hi LC,

    So “the Murtha plan” is to deny the president the possibility of victory while making sure Democrats don’t have to share the blame for the defeat. But of course he’s a great American! He’s a patriot! He supports the troops! He doesn’t support them in the mission, but he’d like them to continue failing at it for a couple more years. As John Kerry wondered during Vietnam, how do you ask a soldier to be the last man to die for a mistake? By nominally “fully funding” a war you don’t believe in but “limiting his ability to use the money.” Or as the endearingly honest anti-war group MoveCongress.org put it, in an e-mail preview of an exclusive interview with the wise old Murtha:

    “Chairman Murtha will describe his strategy for not only limiting the deployment of troops to Iraq but undermining other aspects of the president’s foreign and national security policy.”

    “Undermining”? Why not? To the Slow-Bleed Democrats, it’s the Republicans’ war. To an increasing number of what my radio pal Hugh Hewitt calls the White-Flag Republicans, it’s Bush’s war. To everyone else on the planet, it’s America’s war. And it will be America’s defeat.

  19. Hi Hank

    Excellent point! Our politicians seem to believe they are bystanders and not responsible for any of their decisions.

    I propose that 10 political leaders from each party should have to go to any country they pick a fight with (they don’t even have the courage to declare war) and must stay there until victory is achieved. Can you imagine how quickly a war can be won if they personally have something at stake.

  20. LC–

    I wasn’t going to do this. Really. But this topic is too close to home.

    I have had a real question, sort of revolutionary, but a real question. I’ve written the Heritage Foundation, the Alliance Legal Fund, Sekulow…lots of people. I’ve posted on other blogs. I’ve posted on my own blog.

    It’s an honest, serious question that no one person has responded to. I’d appreciate some feedback on it if you and your tribe so wish.

    My site is http://www.arationalaversion.com. To to February archives and read “.45 ACP: Current Day Validation of the Right to Keep and Bear”

    I’m not asking anyone to clutter LC’s site with conversation. Email me or, preferrably, just leave a comment on the post. This seems quixotic to the max, but it still seems like it would work. We got Capone on tax evasion, for Pete’s sake, so why not this?

    Thanks.
