Nobody Remember’s Barry Goldwater’s Speech on the Cold War

Nobody Remembers

“I hope there is not another Cold War,” Clinton said during the question and answer portion of an appearance in Montreal. “Obviously, nobody wants to see that. I think that is primarily up to Putin.” —-Hillary Clinton, 2014.

******gang of fools

“We’re hoping that Russia will not see this as sort of a continuation of the Cold War. We don’t see it that way. We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States – this is not Rocky IV, believe me,” Kerry said, referencing the 1985 movie.—John Kerry, 2014


Our approach as the United States is not to see these as some Cold War chessboard in which we’re in competition with Russia,” Obama said. “Our goal is to make sure that the people of Ukraine are able to make decisions for themselves about their future, that the people of Syria are able to make decisions without having bombs going off and killing women and children … because a despot wants to cling to power.” Barack Obama


Funny isn’t it? Here we have three top democrats who think that just by saying: “Hey, we can’t go back into the cold war Putin…we already did that!” That Putin will just say, “You’re right. ”

That’s what you get when you put people in power whose total foreign policy achievements between the three of them amount to just how many secret service people they could find a hotel for when they vacationed on Martha’s Vineyard.Barry Goldwater

But.—-the cold war is back, and Nobody Remembers this speech that Barry Goldwater gave on the Senate floor, July 14, 1961, when JFK was President.

Here’s a few excerpts about the last “cold war” with Russia, and a few nobody comments.

Mr. President:

“As I study the address delivered by the distinguished chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations, I find myself becoming first surprised, then amazed, and finally, alarmed. In essence it strikes me as an argument of continued drifting in the wrong direction: for inaction on all major cold war fronts: For future costly implementations of an outmoded, weak- kneed foreign policy which accomplishes nothing but more and greater losses of freedoms’ territory to the forces of international  communism. It is a plea for more useless expenditures in the name of more hopeless objectives. It is part and parcel with the prevalent belief in administration circles that all we have to do is increase the foreign aid budget and Khrushchev will back off. Castro will be rendered ineffective, and a tremendous host of nations will quickly effect social and economic reforms and clasp the United State to their bosom as the savior of underdeveloped areas.”

Nobody Notes: Isn’t this Obama’s whole foreign policy? Give everybody money? Be “nice”?

How many billions has he sent to the Middle East? And now he wants Congress to send billons to the Ukraine, which will end up in Russia, because the Ukraine owes Russia billions, and either way you look at it, that money ends up in Russia. How smart is that? It’s the same game plan that the democrats had back in 1961. He goes on:Putin and Obama two

Mr. President:

“And the way things are going I am beginning to wonder whether it will ever come—those in official capacity in this country will have to stand up and tell the American people why it is that this approach to the realities of the cold war has cost us billions and billions of dollars while communism continues to gain, both in prestige and territory. The plan fact is that this is not a way to meet effectively the challenge of the cold war. It is the way to weaken freedom by draining our strength and undermines our economy…

“What pleases them (Russia) is our present policy of making costly commitments throughout  the world, commitments which carry with them no element of real strength, but which rest on theoretical dreaming that the way to fight Communist bullets is with relief packages, Communist tanks with plows, Communist bombs with elaborate charts for monetary reform.”

Nobody Notes:

Obama is a true liberal, and the way of the progressives. He thinks just because he himself believe the world should now be over guns, and wars, it will be. And if we just send rebels weapons to fight with, food to nourish them, and money for their leaders, everything will work out okay.

Evidently he was playing golf on 9/ll.

Barry’s Goldwater’s speech was about how even in a cold war, you should insist, and fight, for victory, and he cites a quote from General MacArthur who insists we have the RIGHT to prosecute war for the purpose of winning.Douglas MacARuther

The best that might be said for the policy makes responsible for these monumental blunders is that they did not comprehend the truism, as old as history itself, that a great nation which voluntary enters upon war and does not fight it through to victory must ultimately accept all of the consequences of defeat, that in war…there is no substitute  for victory…..

                                                                                                                Douglas MacArthur

Putin is playing to win….and Obama..

Is concentrating on March Madness.

How can we not lose?

Nobody’s Fool: Milton Friedman

Nobody’s Fool

It doesn’t matter how long ago this was taken, the economics are still the same. And yet, already Obama is making the minimum wage and women’s pay, the focus of the next elections. In St. Louis all last week, every single local news station was giving this one Pizza shop downtown St. Louis, lots of coverage because they were going to raise the salaries of their employees to over $10.00. You would have thought by the glowing coverage, that they were curing cancer.

Nobody Wonders if that was the same pizza place that Obama flew to the White House to deliver him a pizza his first days in office? Mmmmm….

Milton Friedman makes it all so clear. What really happens, when you raise the minimum wage, is the poor are hurt the most, and the blacks.

Good think Obama has their ‘backs.’ Their fronts aren’t looking too promising.
