Let it be known forevermore that April 3, 2009 will live in infamy as the day that an American President officially surrendered the financial institutions of our beloved nation over to the European Union. In his speech in Srasbourg, France he urged “a shift in attitudes”. In America, he said, there had been “a failure to appreciate Europe’s “leading role in the world,” and there had been “times when America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”
I am 76 years old and this is the first time in my lifetime that I have ever heard an American President or leader at any level acknowledge that Europe has led America in anything for two centuries except in decadence and tyranny. If this is true, when did Europe take over from America our role as the leader of the free world, as we have always heard other Presidents declare our position to be?
If it had not been for American blood rescuing them from the Kaiser in World War I, and then again from Mussolini and Hitler in World War II, there would be no Europe to lead anything today. If it hadn’t been for America the Brits would be speaking German, and after that war was won the Germans would have been speaking Russian. And if it hadn’t been for the American dollar and massive aid after both wars were over, multitudes would have starved or died from some dread disease.
If you are listening carefully, some are telling about this financial surrender on a daily basis like, Beck, Bortz, Hannnity, Levine, Limbaugh, Morris, O’reilly, and a few others. They are screaming their heads off but few seem to be listening, especially Beck.
Let us return to the announcement in the press this past November when President Bush was going to meet with the leaders of the Western world to see if they could solve the International monetary crisis? Even before the meeting began, Reuters News Service on Nov. 9 said that Britain’s Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, had announced that “the international financial crisis has given world leaders a unique opportunity to create, “a truly global society.”
In a nutshell let’s see what our President gave away without a vote of the people or Congress as a result of his meeting at the G-20 economic summit. The following is an analysis by Dick Morris and Elaine McGann that appeared in Newsmax November 19, 2008.
“Without a vote we are now a member of the European Union. Bush agreed to subject the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and our other regulatory agencies to the supervision of a global entity that would critique its regulatory standards and demand changes if it felt they were necessary and agreed to create a College of Supervisors. According to The Washington Post, it would "examine the books” of major financial institutions. The International Monetary Fund (IMF)… would conduct "regular vigorous reviews" of American financial institutions and practices. The European-dominated College of Supervisors would also weigh in on issues like executive compensation and investment practices.”
And then Morris and McGann asked, “Why have 80 percent of the jobs that have been created since 1980 in the industrialized world been created in the
United States? How has
America managed to retain its leading 24 percent share of global manufacturing even in the face of the Chinese surge?
How has the U.S. GDP risen so high that it essentially equals that of the European Union, whose population is 50 percent greater?
It has done so by an absence of stifling regulation, a liberation of capital to flow to innovative businesses, low taxes, and by a low level of unionization that has given business the flexibility to grow and prosper.
Europe, stagnated by taxation and regulation, has grown by a pittance while we have roared ahead. But now Bush — not Obama — Bush has given that all up and caved in to European socialists.”
The Bible says, “the borrower is servant to the lender. When America borrows billions, the international banksters are going to demand the right to run America’s financial ship.
Now that Obama is President doesn’t mean that anything has changed. If McCain had been elected the surrender would still have been forthcoming. Remember he was also for the bailout before the election.
Garrett Lear, The Patriot Preacher from N.H. says, “Someone has stolen my county and I want it back.” I agree with him. I would also say that if Obama loves Europe so much let him move their and stay. Its time for a new generation to read, understand, and revere Henry VanDyke’s ageless poem, America for Me, written by the Presbyterian preacher in 1909.
" AMERICA FOR ME"
'TIS fine to see the Old World, and travel up and down
Among the famous palaces and cities of renown,
To admire the crumbly castles and the statues of the kings,—
But now I think I've had enough of antiquated things.
So it's home again, and home again,
America for me!
My heart is turning home again, and there I long to be,
In the land of youth and freedom beyond the ocean bars,
Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag is full of stars!
London is a man's town, there's power in the air;
And Paris is a woman's town, with flowers in her hair;
And it's sweet to dream in Venice, and it's great to study Rome;
But when it comes to living there is no place like home.
I like the German fir-woods, in green battalions drilled;
I like the gardens of Versailles with flashing fountains filled;
But, oh, to take your hand, my dear, and ramble for a day
In the friendly western woodland where Nature has her way!
I know that
Europe's wonderful, yet something seems to lack:
The Past is too much with her, and the people looking back.
But the glory of the Present is to make the Future free,—
We love our land for what she is and what she is to be.
Oh, it's home again, and home again,
America for me!
I want a ship that's westward bound to plough the rolling sea,
To the bléssed Land of Room Enough beyond the ocean bars,
Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag is full of stars
