Video Thursday, Anglosphere Edition

Apropos of nothing much else I will say today, this is former Senator Bob Dole of Kansas, holder of the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart from his time as a Second Lieutenant in the 10th Mountain Division in the Second World War. Senator Dole was wounded badly by machine gun fire in Italy in April 1945 and now at 95 years old is unable to get out of his wheelchair, but he did, to salute his comrade, and his friend, President George H.W. Bush, in the Capitol Rotunda the other night. President Bush who was a Naval Lieutenant, and an aviator who flew 58 missions against the Japanese, and is a holder of the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal, and a Presidential Unit Citation.

Whatever your politics, these men are great Americans, who need to be honored. Indeed it is men like Lieutenants Dole and Bush (and millions more) who earned their generation the title of ‘The Greatest Generation’.

And it also ends the presidents who served in that now distant war, George H.W. Bush, who was a Lieutenant, who enlisted on his 18th birthday will be the last of a line that started with General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953. All good men and true, whatever their politics. We are already missing them.

We damned well don’t do PC here, which you know, and so we will not be told what songs to listen to. From Neptune’s Daughter the original version of Baby, It’s Cold Out There. Enjoy

Then there is the UN Migrant Compact. The US and Australia, having a decent respect for their citizens have said that they will not sign it. The Canadian and British governments, who do not, say they will. Not much surprise, both are globalists nonentities, who apparently are merely in politics for themselves. In truth, my British patriot friends use much, much stronger language. I agree with them.

Sometimes we forget, the Canadians are some of the best and bravest people on earth. But they do elect the most detestable people sometimes.

Mark Levin, Heather MacDonald, do I really need to say more?

Well, I try to remember that the world has been going to hell in a handcart since the year 00, sometimes it doesn’t help much.

    I’m sure there were many moving moments yesterday concerning the funeral of George H.W. Bush.
    I didn’t watch minute by minute as kept busy. In and out of house so probably what I saw of Dole salute pre-recorded. It did move me, as is the expression. I think it’s a fact to say he would’ve been as good a president as any.
    I thought so and voted so in ’96, and knew so against Slick. Well, I guess just my opinion. I not getting any say so in the Miss Universe choice either. 🙂

    I think H.W. and Dole had the best of intentions concerning wanting some New World Order over what they’d faced in their time. Results hard to come by. No worldly Utopia gonna be.
    My last best friend, now deceased, helicopter gunship pilot in Vietnam said “seems like world government is the next step.” He meant progression from what had been to where now we are.
    He knew his actions had killed and wished for something better. He suffered from PTSD.
    He agonized though over all the unconstitutional stuff he saw going on and adverse to what he’d sworn to uphold ’til death do him depart.
    Mission still going on. Not accomplished yet, but pay day, some day.
