Did America Really Win The Cold War?

A couple of weeks ago, thanks to social media, I was able to reconnect with a bunch of my Army buddies. We were all stationed in Germany with the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment (Toujours Pret) when the Berlin Wall came tumbling down. Our mission prior to the wall falling was to patrol the Czech border while our sister unit, the 11th ACR, patrolled the East German border.

It was an amazing time to be in Germany. The West German government was giving the East Germans a few hundred Deutsche Marks every time they crossed the border to visit so that they would have money to spend. The highways were clogged with these tiny cars that ran on two-cycle engines just like your weed eater. For weeks the air was thick with the acrid smell of burnt oil hanging in the air.

Our base was less than an hour drive from East Germany or Czechoslovakia and on weekends, the tiny town of Bayreuth Germany (home of the famous composer Wagner) was flooded with people who had never known freedom. They wanted to buy anything and everything American; from Nike shoes to Levi’s jeans. It was hard not to get caught up in the emotional frenzy. Every time you turned on the radio the Wind of Change by the Scorpions was playing. The people were so friendly; they wanted to hug us, talk to us, and more importantly… buy us beers.

I have enjoyed sharing all these memories with my friends but it has also left me with a nagging question. Did America really win the cold war?

There is little doubt that global socialism is on the march and arguably at its peak. America is closer to becoming a socialist state than any time in her history. For the first time we have a president whose world view is more in line with Karl Marx than George Washington.

President Obama’s political career was launched in the living room of communist extremist and domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers. He has surrounded himself with more than forty Czars many of which profess to be Marxists and Maoists. In doing so he has been able to usurp Congress’ ability to perform its checks and balances on the executive branch because these czars report only to the president. Meanwhile there are cabinet members (that do report to congress) who still haven’t spoken to the president after more than two years in office.

President Obama’s Organizing for America hosted the One Nation rally in response to Glenn Beck’s, Restoring Honor Rally. Many of the organizations who co-sponsored the rally were openly socialist/communist and were proud to show their colors. Earlier this year when radical communist and former Obama Czar Van Jones and MoveOn.org held their Saving the American Dream Rally, the permit for the event was actually pulled by the International Socialist’s Union. Funny Van, I don’t remember the American dream being a socialist hell.

In Europe when Austerity measures were announced (deficit reduction) there were violent protests. With the exception of Germany and England it is a foregone conclusion that Europe has adopted socialism. Spain, Portugal, and Greece all teeter on the brink of solvency. Yet their citizenry, who have grown accustomed to the government teet, continue to demand more social programs. Meanwhile because of open borders they have lost all sense of national identity and are all on the brink of being overrun by muslims.

Brazil, one of the world’s emerging economies, has elected a woman president who was once imprisoned for attempting to overthrow the government. Recognizing that Dilma Rousseff is a good socialist, President Obama has given a multibillion-dollar subsidy to Petrobras (Brazil’s national oil company) while halting all U.S. drilling which has helped push gas prices to four dollars per gallon.

Of course Russia and their brand of “state controlled capitalism” (aka socialism) are beginning to flex its political muscles again. They are now in the top ten countries in Gross Domestic Product and continuing to climb. Russia continues to align itself with our enemies by providing nuclear weapon technology to Iran and selling missiles to Venezuela. Maybe we should have listened to Patton after WWII and rolled through Russia while we were in Europe.

And then there’s are friends the Chinese who know a thing or two about planned economies (another buzz word(s) for socialism). Proverbs 22:7 says that “the borrower is slave to the lender” and China owns nearly a trillion-dollars of America’s IOU’s. Sooner or later we are going to have to make good on that debt but Obama and congress continue to spend money like a bunch of drunken Bolsheviks.

Make no mistake about it America is nearing her tipping point. If we don’t take drastic measures to get our spending under control and return to the principals that founded our great republic, then like Rome, we too shall fall. This administration seems hell bent on crippling our economy by placing an insurmountable amount of red tape in the way of business. People that would have been tried for sedition a few generations ago now have offices in the white house. Perhaps we should have listened to McCarthy back in the 50’s because there’s no denying Hollywood, academia, and government have been thoroughly infected with the cancer of communism. The question is: is it too late to cut it all out?


  • “Did America Really Win The Cold War?”

    I was asking myself that very question back in the late ’90′s and into Y2K.

  • Perhaps the first and most important question to ask is not what should be done about the Marxists in the White House, but rather how it is that the party that is supposed to be their antithesis is instead complicit in their crimes? It is popular to refer to many mainstream Republicans as RINOs and to attribute their behavior to political power-lust, but these are intelligent people who have the best available information and still persist in supporting progressive socialization, suppression of private industry, endorsement of enviro-hoaxes and the compromise of our borders. The primary reason that we see international communist organizations brazenly operating in our midst can only be that the “loyal opposition” refuses to take a stand against them. Why?

    • It’s a good question, one that I doubt we’ll ever know the answer too. I think that there are many R’s who are really D’s that do that to win elections. We have a similar case where I live right now and I’m doing everything in my power to shed light on this cockroach.

      I think there are very few true constitutionalists left in America. The media machine along with our education system keeps the vast majority ignorant to what’s happening around them. They care more about American Idol and Dancing with the Stars than their own country. I believe this is by design.

      Our recent local elections saw voter turnout of less than 5% in many areas which is truly pathetic. We see Iraqi’s and Afgahn’s willing to risk their lives to vote but we’re too busy on a Saturday to spend five minutes to vote.

      It’s sickening!

  • The future of this country depends on those who are now 11 or 12 years old. With our current education system, pop culture, and media, I’m not overly optimistic. But, maybe it’s just because I live in NY.

    Great piece!

  • wow i did not know things where so bad in the U.S.A Government untill i read this.has made me look at it in a new light now. here i was thinking we had it bad where i live.,Australia. But u guys have it really bad. Gald i live where i do.

  • Ridicolous, economic liberalism is engulfing the world, corporation are bigger than ever and commands power like no other force before.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
