‘We Are Americans’: Watch John F. Kennedy In This Time of Crisis

Published

on

President John F. Kennedy (1961-63) tried to set a new path for American foreign policy, navigating the treacherous waters of world diplomacy in the middle zone between appeasement and constant war. For his good practical judgment, the Deep State considered him a radical.

On this anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination — November 22 — we pause to pay respect to the man who gave Americans a renewed sense of optimism and purpose. In his absence, the country fell into a chaotic darkness. But the American Republic sustains.

President Kennedy gave this speech at the University of Washington on November 16, 1961. Here is a video clip, followed by the audio of the entire speech below:

Here is the text of the full speech (excerpted below):

There are two groups of these frustrated citizens, far apart in their views yet very much alike in their approach. On the one hand are those who urge upon us what I regard to be the pathway of surrender–appeasing our enemies, compromising our commitments, purchasing peace at any price, disavowing our arms, our friends, our obligations. If their view had prevailed, the world of free choice would be smaller today.

On the other hand are those who urge upon us what I regard to be the pathway of war: equating negotiations with appeasement and substituting rigidity for firmness. If their view had prevailed, we would be at war today, and in more than one place.

It is a curious fact that each of these extreme opposites resembles the other. Each believes that we have only two choices: appeasement or war, suicide or surrender, humiliation or holocaust, to be either Red or dead. Each side sees only “hard” and “soft” nations, hard and soft policies hard and soft men. Each believes that any departure from its own course inevitably leads to the other: one group believes that any peaceful solution means appeasement; the other believes that any arms buildup means war. One group regards everyone else as warmongers, the other regards everyone else as appeasers. Neither side admits that its path will lead to disaster–but neither can tell us how or where to draw the line once we descend the slippery slopes of appeasement or constant intervention.

In short, while both extremes profess to be the true realists of our time, neither could be more unrealistic. While both aim to be doing the nation a service, they could do it no greater disservice. This kind of talk of easy solutions to difficult problems, if believed, could inspire a lack of confidence among our people when they must all–above all else–be united in recognizing the long and difficult days that lie ahead. It could inspire uncertainty among our allies when above all else they must be confident in us. And even more dangerously it could, if believed, inspire doubt among our adversaries when they must above all else be convinced that we will defend our vital interests.

The essential fact that both of these groups fail to grasp is that diplomacy and defense are not substitutes for one another. Either alone would fail. A willingness to resist force, unaccompanied by a willingness to talk, could provoke belligerence–while a willingness to talk, unaccompanied by a willingness to resist force, could invite disaster…

In short, we are neither “warmongers” nor “appeasers,” neither “hard” nor “soft.” We are Americans, determined to defend the frontiers of freedom, by an honorable peace if peace is possible, but by arms if arms are used against us. . . .

Prosecutors Want Stricter Bond Restrictions for Kyle Rittenhouse for Hanging Out with Proud Boys

The Proud Boys are proud of their boy, Kyle.

Published

Kyle Rittenhouse, out on bond after shooting three ANTIFA rioters and killing two at a Kenosha, Wisc. riot scene last summer, is under scrutiny from authorities for merely having a good time at a bar.

Rittenhouse was at a bar with his mother wearing a “Free as F*ck” t-shirt when he was approached by some local Proud Boys. They took pictures together doing the “OK” symbol, which has become controversial due to left-wing hysteria.

As a result, prosecutors in Kenosha County are hoping to modify Rittenhouse’s bond to prevent the young man from enjoying his freedom. They reportedly want to prevent him from being “serenaded” by Proud Boys and other adoring followers.

“Within a few minutes of entering the bar, the defendant was loudly serenaded by 5 of the adult males with the song “Proud of Your Boy,” which is an obscure song written for the 1992 film, “Aladdin.” The violent white supremacist group called the “Proud Boys” was named after this song, which is sung by its members as an anthem and for self-identification,” the Kenosha County District Attorney’s office wrote.

“The defendant later posed for several photographs with these adults in the bar. In each of these photographs, the defendant and the other adults flashed the “OK” sign used by white supremacists,” they added.

The surreal letter from the DA’s office that looks like it was written by an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) operative can be seen here:

The letter from the DA’s house shows how the government is painting ordinary conservatives and Trump supporters by as white supremacists and terrorist threats based on left-wing propaganda.

Big League Politics reported on how Rittenhouse posted bond in November after spending months confined in jail for exercising his right to self-defense against ANTIFA terrorists:

Illinois teenager Kyle Rittenhouse has been freed from the Kenosha County Jail in Wisconsin, after posting a $2 million bond set by a judge on Friday.

Rittenhouse is charged with two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot in August. He’s also charged with a count of being a minor in possession of a firearm.

Rittenhouse was assailed by Rosenbaum while present at the scene of the riots, carrying an AR-style rifle and planning to prevent looting and rioting in Kenosha. Rittenhouse shot and killed Rosenbaum, arguing that he acted in self-defense when Rosenbaum attempted to grab his rifle. Rittenhouse would go on to shoot two men- one of them armed with a gun- who chased him as he tried to flee the scene of the riots.

Rittenhouse had been extradited from Illinois to Wisconsin to face charges. He posted bond through his attorney, Mark Richards, on Friday at 2PM.

Rittenhouse will be remembered as an American hero whether or not he is acquitted in the courts or ultimately made a martyr by a biased and unjust system. The Proud Boys are right to be proud of their boy Kyle in this instance.
