Remembering D-Day and “those who sacrificed to liberate a continent”

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 6, 2012

Governor Palin honored in her tweet today “those who sacrificed to liberate a continent. “

As this introduction from the History.com article about D-Day indicates, the invasion of Normandy on what has come to be known as D-Day, was indeed the beginning of the liberation of Europe from Nazi Germany.

During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.

Army.Mil has a slideshow of actual photos from the battle front as well as a lot of other information about D-Day, including this transcript from General Eisenhower’s speech prior to the invasion:

General Dwight D. Eisenhower in his dress uniform

Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man to man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our home fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!

Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

– Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower

On the 40th anniversary of the Allies’ invasion of Normandy, Ronald Reagan gave a memorable speech,  as described by the The History Place in its Great Speeches Collection:

Standing on the very spot on the northern coast of France where Allied soldiers had stormed ashore to liberate Europe from the yoke of Nazi tyranny, President Ronald Reagan spoke these words to an audience of D-Day veterans and world leaders. They were gathered at the site of the U.S. Ranger Monument at Pointe du Hoc. Following this speech, the President unveiled memorial plaques to the 2nd and 5th U.S. Army Ranger Battalions. The President and Mrs. Reagan then greeted each of the veterans. Other Allied countries represented at the ceremony by their heads of state and government were: Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands, King Olav V of Norway, King Baudouin I of Belgium, Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg, and Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau of Canada.

Bristol Palin Congratulates Governor Walker

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 6, 2012

Bristol Palin posted this on Bristol’s Blog today:

Congratulations, Gov. Walker!

June 6, 2012 By Bristol Palin 17 Comments

Last night was a reminder that the media doesn’t decide who runs our country, the voters do.  For the past 18 months, the “lamestream media”  has led us to believe a rogue governor has been defying the will of the people.  In fact, the Wisconsin governor was doing the work of the people.  In fact, he was doing exactly what the voters elected him to do.

Last night was one to savor, because a good man doing good things won.

Congratulations, Gov. Walker, and thank you, Wisconsin!

Palin: ‘Congratulations to the People of Wisconsin”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on June 6, 2012

Last night after Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch secured victories in the Wisconsin recall election, Sarah Palin posted the following congratulatory message on her Facebook page to the people of Wisconsin:

 

Congratulations to the people of Wisconsin for standing by strong leaders who made tough decisions in dire circumstances that have begun to turn their great state back to prosperity. Leadership is doing what is right, not what is popular. Both Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch are shining examples of this ideal. Elected leaders must do what we elect them to do – lead! – not follow polls or focus on only re-election. A special congratulations to Lt. Gov. Kleefisch who overcame much personal adversity, stood by her governor, and embraced her Tea Party roots.

On Wisconsin! Forward!

- Sarah Palin

Palin: “State Leaders are going to Teach National Leaders a Lesson” (Video)

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on June 6, 2012

Governor Sarah Palin appeared with Neal Cavuto on the FOX Business News Network last night prior to the Wisconsin race being called for Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch.  Palin was confident that the “good folks of Wisconsin would not recall Walker or Kleefisch”.  Reports earlier in the evening showed exit polling results at “50-50″ with early returns having Walker and Kleefisch at 59%-60%.  Wisconsin voters sent a clear message with both Walker and Kleefisch taking 53% of the vote.   (Use the drop down menu to view results for each Wisconsin recalled office results.)

“Austerity is a good thing. This is a virtue that the governor is representing and he’s just letting the public know that they have the opportunity to live within their means, actually cut government spending and allow private sector to create jobs. I think that the voters will embrace that.”

Palin Tonight’s Big Winner Along With Walker Discusses Wisconsin (VIDEO)

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 6, 2012



Mourdock in Indiana, Fischer in Nebraska, Cruz (Part1) In Texas and now Governor Walker and Lt.Governor Kllfisch in Wisconsin. All endorsed by Sarah Palin. All three prior to Wisconsin were winners in different ways whether come from behind, or against all the odds, or didn’t stand a chance when they started. 


All three showed the courage of conviction by Palin who put conviction above self-interest. Certainly, if the long-shots had all lost, the leftist media would have totally written her off as irrelevant whereas now they sudden discover “the power of Palin”.

As Goes Wisconsin, so Goes America; Support Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch

by Sarah Palin on Thursday, March 29, 2012 at 10:54am·

” I join millions of Americans watching the political shenanigans in Wisconsin. I am torn between just chuckling at these radical liberal yahoos trying to oust an intelligent administration that is fulfilling its promises, or raising a fist in disgust at people sitting on their thumbs while Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Kleefisch get thrown to the wolves.
 Wisconsin, you deserve better than this! You don’t have to let those millions of outside dollars flooding your state destroy the records and reputations of your Governor and Lt. Governor, nor should the political dollars dictate your state’s destiny. You have a choice: Retreat, or fight for the positive reform you elected in 2010.
 Governor Walker has left the far Left unhinged, so he’s had to amass a war chest to fend off the lies and dirty dealings in the capitol; and, thankfully, it’s predicted he’ll survive his recall.
 But the recall fight that is just as important is Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch’s.
 She’s being thrown beyond the wolf pack – she’s also under the GOP establishment’s bus because this Tea Party “Mama Grizzly” beat the establishment candidate when she got elected. (And dang, it’s uncomfortable under that chassis!) Rebecca must be thinking, “With friends like these, who needs enemies?” Worse than seeing radical Leftists attack and make things up about a Conservative female opponent is when supporters on the Right sit on their thumbs and act as if there’s nothing they can do to help. Come on! When all else fails you can at least tell the truth! Tell other voters why you supported Rebecca in the first place. Explain her campaign promises and how she has stuck to them and – surprising in today’s political world – is actually fulfilling them. She promised to help balance the budget, cut taxes, build a sound fiscal environment, and provide job opportunities for all Wisconsin residents – not only our union brothers and sisters. She’s setting an example for every other state in the union because responsible state and local governments will be the entities that defend our Republic at a time when there is less and less reason to believe our big centralized federal government will address its self-perpetuated economic problems.
 The far Left has targeted Lt. Governor Kleefisch in particular because they know she’s been busy working and hasn’t raised anywhere near the money Governor Walker has to weather his recall. And get this: they are hoping to keep her off the same ballot as Governor Walker, and instead they would love to put her on a ballot during a Democratic primary in order to give her the worst voter turn out possible. It’s vicious. She’s in the fight of her political life for doing nothing more than what she and Governor Walker were elected to do. If Wisconsin sees either of these two go down in defeat, it will have a chilling effect on any public servant having the guts to do what’s right.
 Sarah Palin”

There is a list of the winners that Palin endorsed  AT THIS LINK.

For Governor Walker, there is no doubt that there were many factors to his victory, not least being his courageous fighting qualities. But Palin’s contribution stood out in one way. She had the guts and gumption to actually go to Wisconsin, to brave the leftists and the media and to give him a ringing endorsement.

Noteworthy too was the fact that there was no sign of Mitt Romney at the end, who will now of course reap the benefits of others’ hard work. Nor for that matter, did President Obama have the courage to show up for his man. Not only that, but President Obama said he would join the  picket lines to help the unions-and didn’t. Contrast his no show with Palin’s bravery.

************************************************



“As Mitt Romney sweeps Tuesday’s primaries in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C., we go to Madison to speak with The Nation’s John Nichols. He notes Romney has steered further toward the right wing as his campaign progresses. In Wisconsin, Romney channeled the anti-union policies of embattled Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. “In many cases, though he didn’t appear for photographs with Scott Walker”

Obama ducks, dodges, dives on Wisconsin

President Barack Obama and his White House team used a June 4 press conference about women’s pay to draw media attention away from the June 5 Wisconsin recall election, which has the potential to tip the battleground state against him in November.

Obama has not visited the state to support the Democratic candidate for governor, Tom Barrett, even through Obama flew around the state on a two-state June 1 fundraising trip.
For June 4, he’s flying to three fundraisers in New York. His June 5 calendar has not been announced

********************************************************************************

And here is Palin who was not afraid to go to Wisconsin and nail her colors to the Walker mast.

Video and Transcript of the Tax Day Tea Party Speech in Madison, Wisconsin

Posted on April 18, 2011
Part 1
Part 2
Hello, Madison, Wisconsin! You look good. I feel like I’m at home. This is beautiful. Madison, I am proud to get to be with you today. Madison, these are the frontlines in the battle for the future of our country. This is where the line has been drawn in the sand. And I am proud to stand with you today in solidarity.
I am here today as a patriot, as a taxpayer, as a former union member, and as the wife of a union member. What I have to say today I say it to our good patriotic brothers and sisters who are in unions. I say this, too, proudly standing here as the daughter of a family full of school teachers. My parents, my grandparents, aunt, cousins, brother, sister – so many of these good folks are living on teachers’ pensions, having worked or are still working in education.
A pension is a promise that must be kept. Now, your Governor Scott Walker understands this. He understands that states must be solvent in order to keep their promises. And that’s what he’s trying to do. He’s not trying to hurt union members. Hey, folks, he’s trying to save your jobs and your pensions! But unfortunately some of your union bosses don’t understand this, and they don’t care if union members have to be laid off. No, they want to protect their own power, and if that means forcing a governor to lay off union workers, then so be it; they’ve proven that is fine with them. But that’s not real solidarity! Real solidarity means coming together for the common good. This Tea Party movement is real solidarity!
Well, I am in Madison today because this is where real courage and real integrity can be found. Courage is your governor and your legislators standing strong in the face of death threats and thug tactics. Courage is you all standing strong with them! You saw the forces aligned against fiscal reform. You saw the obstruction and the destruction. You saw these violent rent-a-mobs trash your capital and vandalize businesses.
Madison, you held your ground. Your governor did the right thing. And you won. Your beautiful state won. And you know what – people still have their jobs because of it! That’s courage. And that’s integrity. And that’s something that’s sorely missing in the Beltway today.
