Today we honor those who served to protect what we might be losing.

TWEET METoday is Memorial Day here in America. It's the day we honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms and the democracy that we claim to cherish.

Most of us have loved ones or know of someone who has served and some of us, sadly, know ---or have relationships with---- those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. This is the day that we honor their memories, and we should never forget their bravery and sacrifice. 

Now, more than ever, those freedoms that these brave men and women gave their lives for are being threatened. And they are being threatened by a con man who has no sense of  duty and honer, and who could care less about things such as the Constitution and the rule of law which drives our democracy. Some of his law breaking  minions are now being glamorized in the American paper of record, and she is being given a choice whether to break the law or not.   

It is particularly sad, because there is no one who is willing to stand up to him and put a check on the madness. The members of his party are all now cult members who are willing to do anything and everything to please him. The members of the opposition are too weak and cowardly to challenge him with something meaningful, and so all we get are threats of subpoenas and more talk. Where I am from, talk without action means nothing. I suspect that a lot of Americans feel this way, and that we are way past the talking phase at this point. 

Just remember, people, history has a way of repeating itself. I mention that because of the following article I read, recently.

"Look, I know what you’re thinking. Putting Hitler in a book about the terrible mistakes we’ve made as a species isn’t exactly the boldest move ever. "Oh wow, never heard of him, what a fascinating historical nugget" is something you’re probably not saying right now.

But beyond him being (obviously) a genocidal maniac, there’s an aspect to Hitler’s rule that kind of gets missed in our standard view of him. Even if popular culture has long enjoyed turning him into an object of mockery, we still tend to believe that the Nazi machine was ruthlessly efficient, and that the great dictator spent most of his time…well, dictating things.

So it’s worth remembering that Hitler was actually an incompetent, lazy egomaniac and his government was an absolute clown show.

In fact, this may even have helped his rise to power, as he was consistently underestimated by the German elite. Before he became chancellor, many of his opponents had dismissed him as a joke for his crude speeches and tacky rallies. Even after elections had made the Nazis the largest party in the Reichstag, people still kept thinking that Hitler was an easy mark, a blustering idiot who could easily be controlled by smart people.

Why did the elites of Germany so consistently underestimate Hitler? Possibly because they weren’t actually wrong in their assessment of his competency—they just failed to realise that this wasn’t enough to stand in the way of his ambition. As it would turn out, Hitler was really bad at running a government. As his own press chief Otto Dietrich later wrote in his memoir The Hitler I Knew, "In the twelve years of his rule in Germany Hitler produced the biggest confusion in government that has ever existed in a civilized state."

His government was constantly in chaos, with officials having no idea what he wanted them to do, and nobody was entirely clear who was actually in charge of what. He procrastinated wildly when asked to make difficult decisions, and would often end up relying on gut feeling, leaving even close allies in the dark about his plans. His "unreliability had those who worked with him pulling out their hair," as his confidant Ernst Hanfstaengl later wrote in his memoir Zwischen Weißem und Braunem Haus. This meant that rather than carrying out the duties of state, they spent most of their time in-fighting and back-stabbing each other in an attempt to either win his approval or avoid his attention altogether, depending on what mood he was in that day.

There’s a bit of an argument among historians about whether this was a deliberate ploy on Hitler’s part to get his own way, or whether he was just really, really bad at being in charge of stuff. Dietrich himself came down on the side of it being a cunning tactic to sow division and chaos—and it’s undeniable that he was very effective at that. But when you look at Hitler’s personal habits, it’s hard to shake the feeling that it was just a natural result of putting a workshy narcissist in charge of a country.

Hitler was incredibly lazy. According to his aide Fritz Wiedemann, even when he was in Berlin he wouldn’t get out of bed until after 11 a.m., and wouldn’t do much before lunch other than read what the newspapers had to say about him, the press cuttings being dutifully delivered to him by Dietrich.
He was obsessed with the media and celebrity, and often seems to have viewed himself through that lens. He once described himself as "the greatest actor in Europe," and wrote to a friend, "I believe my life is the greatest novel in world history." In many of his personal habits he came across as strange or even childish—he would have regular naps during the day, he would bite his fingernails at the dinner table, and he had a remarkably sweet tooth that led him to eat "prodigious amounts of cake" and "put so many lumps of sugar in his cup that there was hardly any room for the tea."

He was deeply insecure about his own lack of knowledge, preferring to either ignore information that contradicted his preconceptions, or to lash out at the expertise of others. He hated being laughed at, but enjoyed it when other people were the butt of the joke (he would perform mocking impressions of people he disliked). But he also craved the approval of those he disdained, and his mood would quickly improve if a newspaper wrote something complimentary about him." [More]

Does that all seem familiar? If it doesn't, you might need to get your head out of the sand. 

Enjoy Memorial Day.

You know what's really incompetent and lazy? Making a Memorial Day post yet again comparing Trump to Hitler.

And it's so easy.

Hitler loved dogs. Obama had a dog. Obama is Hitler..

See?

Hitler also started wars. Unlike his recent predecessors, Trump has so far shown resistance to the Deep State project of eternal war.

I remember when Field was passionately against sending American troops to die in pointless wars on the other side of the world. But the first President to scale back American aggression gets called Hitler.

Go figure.

“How many wars has Trump started?”

How many years into his awful presidency are we? Keeping in mind that Bush had a massive terrorist attack on American soil in his first year to help help justify his warmongering.

Trump has been anything but a peacemaker in office, antagonizing country after country with his America First attitude. It is only a matter of time until this leads to a major war. Ripping up the nuclear treaty with Iran is a superb way to start a war with them.

Not to mention that Trump probably wants a war to boost his shitty approval ratings.

You racist clowns are as deluded about “Trump the non-interventionist” as about everything else.

Dead Ambassador said...

More selective outrage from Field:

"After Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, many Americans felt that the days of “wars for oil” and wars built on lies would end, particularly after then-President-elect Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for his warm rhetoric about the need for world peace. Sadly, to this day, many who viscerally opposed the Bush administration’s Iraq War either fail or refuse to acknowledge that Obama was every bit as murderous as his predecessor, though he did so with smooth words, charm and a media-generated personality cult.

While neoconservatives, particularly those who brought us the Iraq War under Bush, are often associated with the Republican Party, the Obama administration — particularly the Hillary Clinton-led State Department — was plugged directly into the same network of neoconservative actors responsible for the destruction of Iraq.

Indeed, upon becoming secretary of state, Clinton quickly appointed Robert Kagan to her 25-member Foreign Affairs Policy Board, a position he continued to hold after John Kerry took over the State Department. Kagan’s book “The World America Made,” was particularly influential on Obama, who cited the book as having inspired his 2012 State of the Union address as well as his 2012 re-election campaign.

Kagan, one of the most influential and prominent neocons of all, served as a State Department official in the Reagan administration and later went on to co-found PNAC in 1997. As early as 1998, Kagan was calling for the U.S. government to “remove Mr. Hussein and his regime from power.” In 2002, Kagan — along with fellow PNAC member Bill Kristol — claimed that Saddam was supporting “a terrorist training camp in Iraq, complete with a Boeing 707 for practicing hijackings, and filled with non-Iraqi radical Muslims.” He also assertedthat alleged 9/11 “mastermind” Mohammad Atta had met with Iraqi intelligence just months before September 11. Both allegations were extremely influential in promoting the Iraq War, and both are completely false.

Both allegations were extremely influential in promoting the Iraq War, and both are completely false.

However, Kagan’s troubling track record didn’t stop the Obama administration from giving both Kagan and his wife considerable influence over government policy. In 2011, the Obama administration brought on Kagan’s wife, Victoria Nuland, to serve as State Department spokesperson. Nuland was subsequently given the post of Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs in 2013, which she used to engineer the 2014 “regime change” coup in Ukraine — an event that continues to have deadly consequences in that country and has even helped bolster Neo-Nazi elements in the United States.

Nuland is a textbook example of the continuity of the neocons from the Bush administration to the Obama administration. From 2003 to 2005, during the Iraq War and subsequent occupation, Nuland was Dick Cheney’s deputy national security advisor. Cheney, thrilled with her performance, recommended she be appointed to serve as U.S. ambassador to NATO. As the executive branch changed management in 2008, Nuland became the special envoy for conventional armed forces in Europe before becoming the Obama state department spokesperson just three years later.

It’s a good point that Hitler was indeed a crazy fruitcake, not some kind of evil genius. And German elites did feel they could control him. This is part of how he came to power: Wealthy Germans were less afraid of the Nazis than the communists, and so they were complicit in letting Hitler take power.

I still think he had his shit together more than Trump does, though.

Hitler really believed in his evil ideals, campaigned for them for years, and had a whole organized Nazi movement at his back.

For most of his life, Trump didn’t believe in much beyond his own self-aggrandizement. He didn’t express many consistent political opinions at all until quite recently, with the exception of the occasional racist newspaper advertisement demanding no mercy be shown to the (innocent, as it turned out) Central Park Five. He seems to have run for president solely as a vanity project, and his policy platform has been cobbled together on the fly.

All of that doesn’t change the fact that he is dangerous and is doing huge damage to the country. He needs to be removed.

Oil, some of which American oil companies (ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, Chevron) were developing, until the Chavistas stole their drilling equipment. The wingnuts are still furious about that.

This is the reason for all the ranting by Republicans about the hated Venezuelan commies. While it’s true that the Chavistas have run the Venezuelan economy into the ground, it’s not genuine concern for the welfare of average Venezuelans that has caused most of the criticism. It’s all about rich American investors losing their money.

There are several reasons: First, because we are all human beings regardless of the circumstances of our birth and should be given a chance to succeed. Second, the quality of life increases for everyone in a given society when the opportunity for economic success is available to each person. Third, the cost of dealing with crime and it's aftermath are much lower in an affluent society.

How is the opportunity for economic success not available to each person in America?

There are many immigrant groups whose economic success far exceeds the indigenous white population. How is this possible if there are structural barriers to non-white participation?

The median income of Indian Americans is twice that of white Americans, yet they are still count as diversity admissions and hires and are still eligible for minority set-asides for government contracts.

Why should working class whites be taxed to subsidize the economic success of foreigners who are far richer than them?

Why should someone who breaks the law to get into the country get the same advantages as someone whose ancestors were brought here as slaves 300 years ago?

Red lining and Jim Crow ended generations ago. And I wasn't questioning AA for blacks.

Chinese faced nothing like blacks did, and that has been over for more than a century.

Italians and Irish faced some discrimination when they got here, but that too was long ago, and in any event today they are grouped with all other white people.

Why should someone who voluntarily chooses to come here, often illegally, be entitled government-mandated favoritism at the expense of the native population?

"How is the opportunity for economic success not available to each person in America?"

You do have a point but keep in mind that some have easier access to economic success than others. Take Donald trump for example.His father was extremely wealthy and knew bankers, financiers, ect so when donny boy was a young man he was given a small loan (a cool mil) and started his career. If as Gambler pointed out your background is poorer and has less accumulated wealth then it is more difficult than those who have these. If you're already on third base it's easier to score than if you're on first. America has historically had rules specificaly designed to keep certain segments of the society from succeeding while others had no auch barriers. I represent the first generation of blah people who weren't legally discriminated against so this is a pretty recent thing.

America currently has rules specifically designed to to keep one segment of society from succeeding while others have no such barriers.

The elite can get around such barriers by bribing their kid's way into college or getting the government to pay for Diversity, but working and middle class whites are the ones paying the price.

How much unfairness in the name of fairness is enough?

Again, black Americans have legitimate historical argument to make for affirmative action; everyone else is just looting legacy America.

Well, if poor and working class people keep parroting the talking points of the elite such as eliminating social safety nets and promoting deregulation these are the results you get. Go back in history and look at how an American middle class was created and ask Doug and Mike what happened as they have posted here often. If we'd rather be divided by race and ignore what elites like the Kochs are doing then we deserve what we get.

Kenny Rogers, a.k.a. "The Gambler" said...

Actually, I can't think of a single politician who is advocating "eliminating social safety nets". Trump sure isn't.

The American middle class was created by decades of a strong economy unburdened by excessive regulation that resulted in continuous wage growth, and government policies that promoted family formation and cheap housing. Strong communities are created organically, not by oppressive social engineering by a ruling class with no sense of connection to the deplorable masses. The elites want cheap labor from a polyglot underclass that is easy to control.

The Left is built on dividing people on race. Take that away the policies that create special classes and foster division, and their whole reason for existing evaporates.

PilotX said...

Really? Republicans have been trying to eliminate social programs such as Social Security for decades. I can tell you have bought into conservative talking points that are overwhelmingly pro corporation. Keep leading the charge to eliminate regulations so citizens have to pay the costs that corporations should be shouldering and we not only have to deal with the effects of pollution we have to pay to clean up the damage.
I don't think it's the left dividing people based on race I see it more on the right but whatever, you don't seem to be really interested in the path to prosperity for poor folks. The right also opposes unions which are one of the only way workers can have a voice. Lastly, the push to shrink government will lead to diminishing the only institution that can keep corporations honest.

Granny can't answer questions that haven't been already answered for her.

This post is too silly for comment. Go back to school and learn to argue with grownups.

FYI, do some research yourself if you want your inane questions answered.

"His arrogance and idiocy is boundless"

I think that I'm a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I'll tell you right now that I'm gonna think I'm a better political director than my political director.

The greatest threat to America is Negroes and Illegals both of which are aided and abetted by idiotic, commie Jews and White SJWs. Anywhere you find the Negro in the world, it is a disaster of dysfunction and crime.
