Veterans Day

Posted in uncategorized with tags on November 11, 2021 by andelino

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”

Remarks by President Ronald Reagan, Veterans Day National Ceremony, Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Virginia, November 11,1985

A few moments ago I placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and as I stepped back and stood during the moment of silence that followed, I said a small prayer. And it occurred to me that each of my predecessors has had a similar moment, and I wondered if our prayers weren’t very much the same, if not identical.

We celebrate Veterans Day on the anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, the armistice that began on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. And I wonder, in fact, if all Americans’ prayers aren’t the same as those I mentioned a moment ago. The timing of this holiday is quite deliberate in terms of historical fact but somehow it always seems quite fitting to me that this day comes deep in autumn when the colors are muted and the days seem to invite contemplation.

We are gathered at the National Cemetery, which provides a final resting place for the heroes who have defended our country since the Civil War. This amphitheater, this place for speeches, is more central to this cemetery than it first might seem apparent, for all we can ever do for our heroes is remember them and remember what they did — and memories are transmitted through words.

Sometime back I received in the name of our country the bodies of four marines who had died while on active duty. I said then that there is a special sadness that accompanies the death of a serviceman, for we’re never quite good enough to them-not really; we can’t be, because what they gave us is beyond our powers to repay. And so, when a serviceman dies, it’s a tear in the fabric, a break in the whole, and all we can do is remember.

It is, in a way, an odd thing to honor those who died in defense of our country, in defense of us, in wars far away. The imagination plays a trick. We see these soldiers in our mind as old and wise. We see them as something like the Founding Fathers, grave and gray haired. But most of them were boys when they died, and they gave up two lives — the one they were living and the one they would have lived. When they died, they gave up their chance to be husbands and fathers and grandfathers. They gave up their chance to be revered old men. They gave up everything for our country, for us. And all we can do is remember.

And the living have a responsibility to remember the conditions that led to the wars in which our heroes died. Perhaps we can start by remembering this: that all of those who died for us and our country were, in one way or another, victims of a peace process that failed; victims of a decision to forget certain things; to forget, for instance, that the surest way to keep a peace going is to stay strong. Weakness, after all, is a temptation — it tempts the pugnacious to assert themselves — but strength is a declaration that cannot be misunderstood. Strength is a condition that declares actions have consequences. Strength is a prudent warning to the belligerent that aggression need not go unanswered.

Peace fails when we forget what we stand for. It fails when we forget that our Republic is based on firm principles, principles that have real meaning, that with them, we are the last, best hope of man on Earth; without them, we’re little more than the crust of a continent.

We endanger the peace and confuse all issues when we obscure the truth; when we refuse to name an act for what it is; when we refuse to see the obvious and seek safety in Almighty. Peace is only maintained and won by those who have clear eyes and brave minds. Each new day carries within it the potential for breakthroughs, for progress.

Each new day bursts with possibilities. And so, hope is realistic and despair a pointless little sin. And peace fails when we forget to pray to the source of all peace and life and happiness. I think sometimes of General Matthew Ridgeway, who, the night before D-day, tossed sleepless on his cot and talked to the Lord and listened for the promise that God made to Joshua: “I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

We’re surrounded today by the dead of our wars. We owe them a debt we can never repay. All we can do is remember them and what they did and why they had to be brave for us. All we can do is try to see that other young men never have to join them. Today, as never before, we must pledge to remember the things that will continue the peace. Today, as never before, we must pray for God’s help in broadening and deepening the peace we enjoy. Let us pray for freedom and justice and a more stable world. And let us make a compact today with the dead, a promise in the words for which General Ridgeway listened, “I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

In memory of those who gave the last full measure of devotion, may our efforts to achieve lasting peace gain strength.

Thank you. God bless you all, and God bless America.

Anti-Racist Chess 

Posted in uncategorized with tags , on November 11, 2021 by andelino

In traditional chess, white gets to go first. A shocking and racist beginning to anything, but pretty much what you’d expect from a game invented by white slave traders in 1619.

“Anti-Racist Chess” is an updated, more equitable version of this ancient but problematic pastime.

How to Play

The rules are similar to traditional chess with these modifications to make it more fair for the “Pieces of Color” (POC):

1. Before playing, the skin color of both players is determined. The players are to be assigned their pieces based on skin color if at all possible: black players get the black pieces, racist white people get the racist white pieces, etc. If both players are the same skin color, the player with the fewest grievances must play as white.

2. Before the game starts, the black player gets to draw two “race cards” from the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) deck.

3. Black gets to move first.

4. All the black pieces can move anywhere on the board during their turn. Only one piece can be moved per turn.

5. The white pieces can only move forward one square. Only one piece can be moved per turn.

6. Players are permitted to play a race card at any time, which allows them to remove any one of their opponent’s pieces from the board. After the race card has been played, another can be drawn from the deck.

7. Just like traditional chess, the first player to place the other player’s king in checkmate wins. Stalemates are also possible, in which case the black player automatically wins to make up for past injustices.

History of the game

Race baiter Caliph Barack Hussein Obama noticed a disturbing trend in the game of chess in 2016. He analyzed 632 chess matches going back to 1948 and discovered this shocking fact: white wins 54.6% of the time. While most people would make this obvious example of systemic racism known by the usual methods – publication of a book, writing an expose for the New York Times, or burning down a city – Race baiter Obama decided to go a different route. Like the inventor of Monopoly, he would seek to educate the toiling masses by harnessing mankind’s natural attraction to games and puzzles.

He invented “Anti-Racist Chess” in 2019 and it became an instant classic, replacing “racist chess” nearly everywhere in the US and selling over 87 million copies in the first year. Makes an excellent Kwanzaa gift!

How much of a “race baiter” IS Obama? According to Pew:

The year before Obama took office, about 4 in 10 blacks believed racism was a problem in the USA.
A year after he left office, more than 8 in 10 blacks believed racism was a problem in the USA.
This is where all of this nonsense began. Racial harmony was closing the gap until Obama purposefully widened the divide.
The USA gives blacks the greatest freedom and opportunity to succeed in the world.
Blacks in the USA are the wealthiest in the world.
The USA is the least racist country in the world.
Finally, Leftist retards destroy every single thing they touch and the USA is in the cross-hairs of the filth.

Obama’s Unethical Quote Of The Year

Grinch Joe Biden

Posted in uncategorized with tags , on November 11, 2021 by andelino

“Fraud-In-Chief” Joe Biden continues struggling with messaging to Americans about what his administration is doing to make things better for the difficult 2021 Thanksgiving and Christmas season.

The White House released a video of Biden trying to reassure Americans things were going to be fine, despite looming reports of shortages, and stubbornly high costs for ordinary goods.

“I know a lot of Americans are worried whether or not there’s going to be enough stock on the shelves for Thanksgiving and Christmas,” Biden says in the video, as a reassuring soft piano soundtrack plays in the background.

Biden is struggling to address immediate economic issues as consumers face a 41 percent higher cost for their Thanksgiving turkeys, a 10.5 percent higher cost for food, 20 percent higher shipping costs, and gas prices up nearly 90 percent. Prices for American consumers jumped 6.2% in October compared with a year ago, the highest inflation since the 1990s.

In the video, “Fraud-In-Chief” falsely claims “there was a short supply last year” because of the coronavirus pandemic and that things are getting better this year.

Grinch Biden reveals in the video he spoke on the phone with Wal-Mart President and CEO Doug McMillon, UPS CEO Carol B. Tomé, FedEx Chairman and CEO Frederick W. Smith, and Target Board Chairman and CEO Brian Cornell.

“They all told me that things are really moving along,” Biden says reassuringly. “All the folks I spoke with, not just the East Coast, but the West Coast, they just all are confident that things are going to be different at Thanksgiving and a much different Christmas this year,” Biden lied.

The video featured an obvious cut in the middle of Biden’s comment, suggesting his reassuring statement had to be edited by staff to get it right. He tried to explain his $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill would eventually get the country “back to normal” and that Americans would be able to get to the store and get the products they needed for Christmas.

“The expectation is it’s not going to be this time last year, you’re going to be able to get to the store, get to your place – get to the outlets you’re looking for, get the products you need, you gifts that you want, that’s what we’re working on,” he lied.

“Fraud-In-Chief” Biden admitted during a virtual DNC fundraiser that many Americans were not experiencing any immediate relief from high costs. “Now, I know a lot of folks don’t feel that progress out there, that we’re making in the economy. I get it. I know the cost of gasoline and groceries and rent seems to be harder and harder to handle that.”

But “Fraud-In-Chief” offered no other solutions than his multi-trillion “Build Back Better” bill that remains stalled in the House of Representatives. “That’s all the more reason why we have to pass the Build Back Better plan,” he lied.
