There’s and old quote worth mentioning here.
“When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”
This is meant to get those involved revved up to fight.
Oddly, Arizona Senator, Jeff Flake took this as an opportunity to cut and run.
Flake is clearly appropriately named.
*If he played football he would be called “Wrong Way Flake.”
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) plans to deliver a speech later in the week torching President Trump’s attacks on the Empire of Lies known as the mainstream press.
Is the U.S. Senate required to give him time to blast a sitting president?
He also intends to compare the President of the United States of America to Josef Stalin.
Flake’s senate term ends in January 2019.
From now until then, he intends to deliver a series of speeches outlining how Donald Trump’s presidency has impacted the country.
Though he sounds reasonable, is his speech just another excuse to cut and run?
“2017 was a year which saw the truth—objective, empirical, evidence-based truth—more battered and abused than any other time in the history of our country, at the hands of the most powerful figure in our government.”
Mr. President, it is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies.”
“The free press is the despot’s enemy, which makes the free press the guardian of democracy.
When a figure in power reflexively calls any press that doesn’t suit him ‘fake news’, it is that person who should be the figure of suspicion, not the press.”
“The similarities to Stalin should be a source of great shame for senators,” Flake will add.
Flake’s specious criticism is the benchmark of someone whose thirst for stupid is unquenchable; his ignorance of Stalin’s savagery alarming.
Upon the death of Stalin in 1953, the millions he incarcerated cheered at the demise of one of history’s most murderous dictators.
In Episode 1 of “Russia’s War: Blood Upon The Snow” , the opening narration reveals to the viewer: “Unknown to the Soviet people, before his death Vladimir Lenin drew up a testament; an assessment of the leaders who would come after him.
The outstanding personalities he recognized were Leon Trotsky and Josef Stalin.
But his postscript contained a political time bomb─a condemnation of Stalin’s character and his suggestion that Stalin’s post of General Secretary should be taken from him.
The testament was never made public.”
“Blood Upon The Snow” features rarely seen archival war photographs and astonishing footage from over a dozen countries…some of which are believed to be the only filmed evidence of some of the most infamous WWII atrocities, such as the Katyn Forest Massacre of 4,000 Polish officers by the Soviets.
The filmmakers assert it is the only documentary evidence of Stalin’s Order 227, his brutal decree to embattled troops at Stalingrad that any Red Army soldier in retreat would be shot by “blocking units” bringing up the rear.
It provides remarkable insight into what led to the death of 65 million Soviets during Stalin’s reign of terror.
Comrade Flake’s contempt is enraging.
He is employing something purely Soviet: Make accusations and then end things by suggesting someone be locked up in a psychiatric facility.
