On June 6, 1944, america and its British and Canadian allies launched a long-awaited invasion of the northern European mainland, touchdown on 5 German-held seashores in Normandy. The invasion got here simply two days after American troops liberated Rome and practically 4 years to the day after the British had fled the continent from Dunkirk, to regroup and, in the end, return.
Finally, the Allies had been on the offensive—and, lower than a yr later, Adolf Hitler killed himself in his bunker in a Soviet-besieged Berlin and the warfare in Europe was successfully over.
The worth of an audacious offensive is one thing lengthy identified to profitable commanders. Alexander the Nice, probably the most revolutionary common of his time and the path-setter for all who adopted—defeated the mighty Persian military beneath Darius III at Issus and Gaugamela, destroying the Persian Empire round 330. Mobility, revolutionary battlefield ways, and a kinetic sense of fight noticed the persistently outnumbered Macedonian Greeks conquer enormous swaths of territory throughout Asia Minor and all the best way to Afghanistan and India.
Napoleon, who worshipped Alexander, and George S. Patton, Jr., each made the phrase “l’audace, l’audace, toujours l’audance” (audacity, audacity, at all times audacity) into their mottos, persistently stunning their enemies with surprising mobility, esprit de corps, and a present for tactical improvisation when it was wanted. Most of all, nevertheless, they supplied dashing management—one thing in significantly brief provide in America lately.
No, we’re not in a taking pictures warfare—not but, at the very least. However that’s simply the issue: the Russians are hacking main American corporations with impunity and the Biden administration simply sits there, advising them to pay the ransom cash and transfer on.
In Asia, the communist Chinese language are busy constructing a navy (though China has by no means been a naval energy, and its skill to mission drive is, traditionally, worthless) and—having intentionally attacked the world with their manufactured novel coronavirus in Wuhan—at the moment are making threatening noises about nuclear warfare if the West dares name them on it.
In the meantime, the mullahs in Iran have resumed course towards creating a nuclear weapon now that Donald Trump is out of the image.
Anticipate no management on any of those issues, from both the anti-American Democrats or the supine Republicans, nevertheless. The relentless beating that Trump took from the second he was inaugurated to even after he left workplace has warned off the spineless GOP institution that this, too, can occur to you.
On the Again Foot
In the meantime, the “pals throughout the aisle” are using their ideological stooges within the legacy media, for whom no lie is simply too outlandish to be believed, to show that fact now not issues (Dr. Fauci, take a bow) and people who stay devoted to it will likely be banned, deplatformed, banished, silenced, and even prosecuted.
Thus, the Republicans and conservatives are at all times on the again foot, defending themselves in opposition to the institutional Left’s fixed assaults with out ever mounting an offensive of their very own.
Even through the fleeting Trump administration, what injury did the president and his typically duplicitous crew of backstabbers truly do to hinder the principal home enemy?
After 4 years of Trump, all of the Democrats wanted to do was win—somehow—a handful of states by the slimmest of margins and behold: the Electoral Faculty that the Democrats have been complaining about for years as “undemocratic” handed them energy.
Now Trump’s govt orders and numerous initiatives are being summarily overturned—and with not a peep of grievance by the GOP-nominated judiciary. When Trump was within the White Home, the Democrats might rely on an obscure federal decide within the boondocks to immediately challenge a nationwide injunction. Republicans? Crickets. It’s as if Trump by no means existed, besides as a bogeyman with whom to frighten the ladies and kids.
So, within the spirit of D-Day, it’s time to man up and fight. As patriotic Individuals have been studying the exhausting means for the reason that Clinton administration—and now as soon as once more, throughout what quantities to the third Barack Obama time period—not all enemies are overseas.
Because of the malign efforts of the communist Frankfurt School, their pernicious doctrine of Vital Idea has been weaponized to divide Individuals by race, and their “Social Justice” warriors are busily destroying the cores of main American cities.
Their media minions, led by the race-obsessed New York Instances and the Trump-obsessed Washington Publish, relentlessly and maliciously assault the foundations of the nation, whereas their enthusiastic promulgation of the COVID-19 hoax has resulted in additional than a yr’s price of financial destruction, lassitude, an unseemly consolation with life on the dole for a lot of, a cult of “security,” and an outright worry of life.
If the Left wished to destroy America and the American spirit, how would they be appearing any otherwise?
Actually, they do—they usually’ve been making that fairly clear for nearly a century. Drawback was, actual Individuals didn’t consider them. Individuals are too good, too sort, and too unwilling to suppose unwell of their fellow man.
Pummeled into submission by the false “virtues” of variety (which is de facto divisiveness) and “tolerance” (which the Frankfurt College’s level man in academe, Herbert Marcuse, aptly described as “repressive tolerance”), the American folks have been rendered inert, to the purpose the place they permit themselves to be browbeaten and threatened in their very own universities and public boards—and simply sit there and take it within the identify of “equity.”
What’s wanted is new, contemporary, and actual management—a real campaign to grab again the nation—as-founded from the ideological imports who would destroy the work of the Founders and switch america of America right into a Third World state a la Mexico or the previous USSR, during which a handful of oligarchs—the “nomenklatura”—lord it over a peasantry that nonetheless votes for them each probability they get.
“Toujours l’audace.” We owe the boys who died on D-Day nothing much less. For this is warfare, and the earlier everybody wakes as much as that truth, the earlier an actual chief of braveness and conviction can emerge. And who may that be? I’ll have some ideas for you—and a few names—subsequent week.
