‘I VILL TRANSMIT DIS TO VLADIMIR!
I couldn’t have been more than five years old; a child sitting cross legged in front of the black and white television set in our South Gate, California bungalow; not watching Howdy Doodie but a session of the UN on the news with an angry old bald headed Russian pounding the pulpit.
In my little church going mind (the only way I related to pulpits) I thought this was a very upset minister, but clearly recalled the frightening words, “We will bury you!” This was a scary man.
I later learned he wanted to go to the new Disneyland theme park–the “Happiest Place on Earth”–which had just opened up, and was a mere 25 minutes from our home. I learned from the news he wasn’t allowed to go.
His anger got him instead a one way ticket back to Russia from a kinder looking old man named President Eisenhower.
My little heart was glad. Even then I could understand he wouldn’t get much out of the Tea Cups or Dumbo rides.
I understood my father had been in “the war.” Back then everyone talked about it and war movies, with the evil Nazi’s as the ever-present villains, embedding themselves deeply into our baby-boom psyches.
I translated this new grandpa-man yelling angry words about America to mean maybe we had a new villain, and maybe a new war, and it scared me.
I learned that if we hid under desks, that an atom bomb might not kill us. I recall we were to go somewhere when corner air-raid sirens shrieked, but there was nowhere to go but underneath those desks…
So, the message was, “Have a desk near.”
I remember someone sharing with me as a boy how you could boil a frog. You could put it in a pot and gradually turn the heat up a bit at a time. Before the frog new it the water would be boiling and it would be too late.
This caused me to stay away from Jacuzzis for the longest time…
Now 53 years later I understand what the angry words from the mean looking Russian, “We will bury you!” meant.
Soft socialism (without Stalin-esque gun to the head), was instituted by 4 term autocrat & elected-for-life President FDR during a “Great Depression” opportunity 70+ years ago to provide “…a chicken in every pot…” A democratic ploy it was easing the American citizen into the pot itself, and like the frog boiling him in degrees until he was insensible to danger.
Building a wedge among producers and takers, dependents on government and providers to government, the new socialists seek to break America by burying it in debt; we become not taken over by force of arms, but by force of central controls from a government eager to form the global alliance so sought after by the Soviets.
This new kind of evil is what Nikita Khrushchev, the angry old Russian man of my boyhood had in mind when he added, ‘We will bury the west without firing a single shot.”
Yet, all this conspiratorial noise would sound a bit paranoid if it were not for the facts before us after three years of an Obama nation and an “open mic” of March 26, 2012 in Seoul, Korea where a secretive US President was having a “private” chat with his pal President Dimitry Medvedev of Russia.
Here’s the elevator version of what transpired:
1. The Russians want the US to back off of implementing nuclear defense shields in Europe. Bush was not a match for them, but they rightly figured Barack H. Obama was.
2. Mr. Obama, being the sympathetic socialist leaning politico he implies through his actions, offered some conciliatory words to the outgoing Medvedev about why it is taking him so long to “get the deal done“–
President Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.”
President Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”
President Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”
President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
Were it not so dangerous it would be hilarious; the kind of skit material late night comedians beg for from politicians.
FULFILLING RUSSIAN PROPHECY:
The multiple layers of danger and issues arising from the “open mic” exchange, where Obama clearly believes he will win the November election and just needs more time, was like a child begging his master to have patience with him.
Yet this is a President of the United States — the most powerful position of leadership in the “Free World” — a man who inherited a Presidential pedigree of tough negotiators like Ronald Reagan. He begs for time to dismantle strength and negotiating power from west to east!
Could you imagine if Ronald Reagan begged Gorbachev to “give me a little space” at Reykjavik where the world might be now?
“Back to the Future” – Here we are with the weakest President occupying the White House in 100 years, begging our nuclear nemesis and powerful enemy of freedom Russia for more time to do what; dismantle our defenses? Give in to Russian military power so that they might intimate former communist client states like Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia?
Strike us when we are at our weakest point yet?
The words “We will bury you!” are ringing in my ears.
Ah well — I still have a desk to hide under…
