Ronald Reagan's 1981 Christmas Address

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Things sure have changed in the past 30 years...

Abridged transcript (full version can be found here):

Good evening.

At Christmas time, every home takes on a special beauty, a special warmth, and that's certainly true of the White House, where so many famous Americans have spent their Christmases over the years. This fine old home, the people's house, has seen so much, been so much a part of all our lives and history. It's been humbling and inspiring for Nancy and me to be spending our first Christmas in this place.

We've lived here as your tenants for almost a year now, and what a year it's been. As a people we've been through quite a lot -- moments of joy, of tragedy, and of real achievement -- moments that I believe have brought us all closer together. G. K. Chesterton once said that the world would never starve for wonders, but only for the want of wonder.

At this special time of year, we all renew our sense of wonder in recalling the story of the first Christmas in Bethlehem, nearly 2,000 year ago.

Some celebrate Christmas as the birthday of a great and good philosopher and teacher. Others of us believe in the divinity of the child born in Bethlehem, that he was and is the promised Prince of Peace. Yes, we've questioned why he who could perform miracles chose to come among us as a helpless babe, but maybe that was his first miracle, his first great lesson that we should learn to care for one another.

Tonight, in millions of American homes, the glow of the Christmas tree is a reflection of the love Jesus taught us. Like the shepherds and wise men of that first Christmas, we Americans have always tried to follow a higher light, a star, if you will. At lonely campfire vigils along the frontier, in the darkest days of the Great Depression, through war and peace, the twin beacons of faith and freedom have brightened the American sky. At times our footsteps may have faltered, but trusting in God's help, we've never lost our way.

Just across the way from the White House stand the two great emblems of the holiday season: a Menorah, symbolizing the Jewish festival of Hanukkah, and the National Christmas Tree, a beautiful towering blue spruce from Pennsylvania. Like the National Christmas Tree, our country is a living, growing thing planted in rich American soil. Only our devoted care can bring it to full flower. So, let this holiday season be for us a time of rededication.

Christmas means so much because of one special child. But Christmas also reminds us that all children are special, that they are gifts from God, gifts beyond price that mean more than any presents money can buy. In their love and laughter, in our hopes for their future lies the true meaning of Christmas.

So, in a spirit of gratitude for what we've been able to achieve together over the past year and looking forward to all that we hope to achieve together in the years ahead, Nancy and I want to wish you all the best of holiday seasons. As Charles Dickens, whom I quoted a few moments ago, said so well in ``A Christmas Carol,'' ``God bless us, every one.''

Good night.

Note: The President spoke at 9 p.m. from the Oval Office at the White House. The address was broadcast live on nationwide radio and television.

h/t Jerry

Amazing how a gigantic mannorah was erected back in 1981 too.  Fabulous.  Fucking fabulous.  If this didnt set off incredibly loud bells back then, we are FUCKED and deserve to rot in our own stupidity of piss, shit and vomit.  Only then will we learn that dealing with these vermin is why every great nation falls.  History keeps repeating itself and we stand by and let it happen.

I don't understand the downvotes. It must be some kind of nostalgia and people here thought things were better back then. They weren't. Corruption was rampant in fact Reagan had the most corrupt administration in history unrvivaled by even Obama but with another five years maybe Obama can take that prize.

Lest you forget about Reagan's involvement in the Iran Contra affair where the CIA was caught trafficking cocaine; and the War on Drugs that Reagan began along with the beginning of the militarization of the police force.

Centuries ago the Pope gave the Rabbis the greatest gift of all time, permission to print the Talmud.  More recently Papism kicked Paul of Tarsus out of the assembly of believers by proclaiming that anyone who believes the Hebrews murdered Christ was cast out to hell for eternitity.

So much for the Rabbinical myth that Rome is allways against Judaism.

During one of the eras where Rome was indeed burning the Talmud, the Rabbis invented a code word for Jesus, Pantera. 

Per the Talmud:

Pantera is the name of the Roman guard who fathered Jesus through the whore Mary.  Also, Jesus boils in excrement for eternity for claiming He was God.

Re: Pantera

I've always wondered about that.  Why did the Talmud explain the virgin birth in that way?  Wouldn't it have been more believable to merely claim that Joseph was the father of Jesus, and that he and Mary had been doing what many "espoused" couples did back then?  Same thing with explaining the "empty tomb."  Why claim that the disciples had stolen the body?  Just say the guy was long dead and the whole thing was a fraud.

All that said, there are plenty of conservative Jews who wish me a Merry Chrismas, and explain how glad they are that they live in christian America, where they can be free and prosper.  I guess folks are talking about the other kind?

Here's the latest smear on Ron Paul. This Don Black "Nazi" character has got to be an operative of some nefarious group like the SPLC-remember it was the SPLC who was involved with some of the "Nazis" that McVeigh was associated with. A little research into Don Black on Wiki reveals that he was trained on computers while in federal prison. Oh really?

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/ron-paul-wont-fully-repudiate-racists-report-2011-12-26?link=MW_home_latest_news    

"According to the Times report, Don Black, who directs the white nationalist site Stormfront.org, cited Paul’s views on the Federal Reserve among reasons to support the lawmaker.

"Also, our board recognizes that most of the leaders involved in the Fed and the international banking system are Jews," Black told the newspaper."

Do you know that

·        Over 150,000 Jews were serving in the Nazi Wehrmacht and SS?

·        There was a very close cooperation between Zionists and Nazi SS?

·        Even Hitler’s personal chauffeur was a Jew?

·        In 1938, in the Nazi & Soviet security cooperation agreement signed by Gestapo chief Heinrich Müller and NKVD chief Beria, it was clearly stated that their mutual goal was to fight the international Jewish Banking Oligarchy. There was not a single word about "regular" Jews? No wonder, the majority of Stalin’s commissars and close associates were Jews.

I had the pleasure of touring Israel with a group of fellow Roman Catholics a few months ago.  I was most impressed with the country, and what the Israelis have accomplished, surrounded by enemies and constantly threatened with complete annihilation, should they lose a war.  I was also struck by how small the country is--about the size of New Jersey, with a relatively small population of only a few million.   The country is beautiful--well tended, with plantations of flowers everywhere, big groves of citrus in unexpected places, obviously an industrious, educated and civilized people.  I also had the opportunity to visit Yad Vashem, the "Place of Remembrance" where the history of perhaps the singlest greatest crime against humanity in history, murder on an industrial scale, is documented in meticulous and irrefutable detail:  the systematic elimination of Europe's Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators.  As a student of history myself, I was not surprised by much that I saw there, but I was amazed by the almost compulsive attention to detail (which is why the Germans make such good cars, I suppose) which surrounded the Nazi's pursuit of their objective, which they almost accomplished.  One number stood out:  of the six million Jews murdered, roughly 1.5 million were children.   There is no question that the Holocaust occurred, and, in my opinion, the kinds of vile and vicious viewpoints expressed by some of the posters on this site are the very best justification for the continued existence of Israel, and the firm support of Israel by the United States and its allies, that I can imagine.

It's because it isn't describing the birth, it's portraying women as catergorically inferior like it does throughout the Talmud -- ALL SLUTS..

This is validated throughout the Koran, too.

Females are a threat to man's little dick power struggle, personified in the OLD books of religious masturbation.

It was Christ that tossed that feminine-dogma out of the church, and Christianity is the only religion that does so.

The oppression of woman on religious man's behalf continues to this second over much of the earth.

That passage about pantera drips with fear, just like a coward wrote it - self preservation.

If Jews are vermin why:

1. Is Israel by far and away the most democratic and richest country per capita in the Middle East, ex-oil revenue? 

2. Is Israel a high-tech powerhouse? 

3. Does the Bible say Jews are Gods "chosen people?"

4. Was Jesus born of Jewish parents and referred to in the Bible as a Rabbi?

5. Were all the Disciples Jewish?

6. Why have Jews won Nobel prizes at at rate 100s of times their representation in the population? 

7. Was Einstein vermin? Jesus? Jonas Salk? Hans Bethe (hint, he discovered the nuclear physics of the sun).

8. Calling Jews vermin is one easy way to distract yourself from your own stupidiy and lack of ability. Go back to your cave Mr. Neanderthal. Have another drink. And wipe the food off your shirt.

The fact.. that.

1. Jews are really being pushed or have been pushed into the fore-front.

2. The Money behind the Jews is NOT! Jewish!

3. All this new (same old) information has been made so easy to find.. by Google (owned by Jews).

4. The fact that the WASPS have allowed the Jews to Jump on the Grenade for this downturn of downturns.

But that is not information being made available, thusly force fed the ignorant masses.

Dont get me wrong, those responsible are treasonous scum.. one and all.. and I dont give a fuck if they are green / purple and / or any other fucking color, creed or nationality.

ALL! of them must go.. and ALL of them are NOT! strictly Jews. Just to be really fucking clear.

but the 80% (maybe 70%) Jews running Wall Street.. they are due special service for their participation.. against their own kind, against man kind!

dont worry.. when the people get hungry! we will have us a real shindig!

Yes.

130 million+ people have died under just two Communist regimes, not counting the world wars. In 1920, in a February 8 edition of the Illustrated Sunday Herald (London) Winston Churchill wrote: “From the days of Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx to those of Trotsky, Bela Kuhn, Rosa Luxembourg, and Emma Goldman, this worldwide conspiracy has been steadily growing. This conspiracy has played a definitely recognizable role in the tragedy of the French Revolution (Robespierre was Jewish and most of the wealth lost by aristocracy during the revolution ended up in the hands of the Rothschilds). It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century, and now at last, this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”

Does any of that give them an excuse to act like parasites in whichever society they live, giving each other jobs and contracts, deliberately organising to build hegemonic control over the media, financial and political system? And acting in a highly racially organised manner whilst actively undermining the concept of racial identification in the majority group?

It is not that there are only two options: the gas chambers or allowing jews to completely take the piss and destroy the nation. Giving jews a free pass is not working.

5.   No. Luke, the physician, was a Greek. And all the disciples became Christians, i.e., followers of Christ.

6.   Money control of the selection committees.

7.   The widespread informed opposition to Jewish control of media and governments does not stoop to using words like vermin; it is not necessary. And it is blasphemy to equate Einstein or any man with Jesus (He who saves).

Andrew Jackson was a great man and a great President who got rid of the bankers, it's not his fault that the Rothschilds and Warburgs and Schiffs and Kuhns and Loebs got their man Woodrow Wilson elected-and to say that he is part of the paradigm that plagues the world today is utter nonsense.

I do agree that Andrew Jackson should have handled the Cherokee situation differently.

LTER, you are so right. People should stop worshipping at the alter of Ronald Reagan. He was responsibile for many of the things that have come back or are coming back to bite the US in the ass. This latest spending binge was started by the cowboy from Kaleephornia. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_public_debt

Debt relative to GDP rose rapidly during the 1980s under president Ronald Reagan, whose economic policies increased military spending and lowered tax rates.[9][10] Gross debt in nominal dollars quadrupled during the Reagan and Bush presidencies from 1980 to 1992. The net public debt quintupled in nominal terms. Debt held by the public had declined from 28% to 26% of GDP in the 1970s, by contrast, it rose to 41% of GDP by the end of the 1980s.

Looking at these graphs should tell all when the slope started to move upward.

Last time I looked, all spending bills originated in the House. Blaming an executive for something the legislative branch is responsible for is a bit misleading.

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

Cathartes, I think you're confusing Jean Dixon with Joan Quigley, who was Nancy Reagan's psychic. Joan and Nancy met on the Merv Griffin show, shortly after the Hinkley assassination attempt. Quigley told Nancy that she could have predicted the event, if she had been focussing on it. 

After that, Nancy consulted Quigley frequently by telephone, unbeknownst to the American public. Remember, Ron Reagan at that time was in the early stages of Alzheimer's (another fact kept from public knowledge), and Nancy played a much bigger role in the daily management of the White House than anyone realized.

When Donald Regan (who disliked Nancy intensely) revealed her psychic connection in his memoir For the Record, people worried that Nancy, not Ron, was running the country, guided by a flakey San Francisco psychic. Strange days, indeed.

Copy and paste (too lazy to verify, you judge)

Debt Added by Obama vs Debt Added by Bush

I know we all keep hearing about Bush adding more to the national debt than Obama, so I went and looked up the real numbers. These are official government reports.

I compared the last 4 (four) years of Bush to the first 2 (two) years and 10(ten) months of Obama. First you will see the total debt added by each for the time periods above. Then you will see what it is average per month during those periods.

Bush 4 years = Jan. 9. 2009 = 10.6 Trillion total

Bush start of last 4 years = Jan. 9 2005 = 7.6 Trillion total

Obama start of last 2 years and 10 months = 10.6 Trillion total

Obama Nov. 9 2011 = 15.04 Trillion total

Bush 4 years added 3.0 Trillion

Obama 2 years 10 months added 4.4 Trillion total

Bush aded an average of 0.0625 Trillion a month

Obama added 0.1219 Trillion a month

So the facts are that Obama is adding debt to the USA deficit at a rate twice as fast as Bush. Now people of the Obama camp have blamed Bush for all this. But after almost 3 years, two of which the Democrat party had total control (President, Senate and House), it is wearing pretty thin as a continuing excuse.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y06NSBBRtY

 

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.

In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system -- ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.

Another factor in maintaining balance involves the element of time. As we peer into society's future, we -- you and I, and our government -- must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering, for our own ease and convenience, the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow.

Without a doubt. Reagan had a deal with dems to get 3:1 cuts for any new tax, but they controlled congress, and lied, so we never got the cuts after we got the tax.

 

Racist Wilson gave us the FED, the sedition act >100K imprisoned in a proto-NDAA, and he re-segregated the Federal government. FDR confiscated the people's gold, put Japanse-American citizens in proto-FEMA camps, supported lynchings along with Wilson, put a klansman on the SCOTUS, and tried to overthrow the SCOTUS.

 

Eisenhower wasn't bad. Johnson murdered Kennedy (Per Johnson's longtime mistress interview), saddled us with welfare-statism to buy the black vote back after giving up on their segregationism. Clinton was more corrupt than Nixon.

In 1947 the so-called, Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), begins its assault on the constitutional rights of American citizens in Hollywood in an attempt to ensure that only "right" thinking individuals work in the most powerful propaganda instrument in the country. Among the alcoholics, paranoics and general headcases on the HUAC is Nazi war criminal escape facilitator and Mafia cash recipient Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon. Closeted homosexual gay basher and cross-dresser cum FBI Director J. "Edna" Hoover addresses the Committee and states that communism is being spread by "the diabolic machinations of sinister figures engaged in un-American activities." Old J. Edna sure had a way with words, didn't she? Third-rate actor, Ronald "Bloodbath" Reagan, who, like most avid hawks, has never been anywhere near the warfare he is so eager to inflict on others, shows far more inclination to dive into the great stage-managed battle against the mythical evil of communism as a snitch and stool pigeon. Reagan becomes registered informer T-10 for the FBI. He patriotically delivers the names of colleagues in the Screen Actors Guild who might be harboring impure thoughts. At J. "Edna" Hoover's request, the heroic, freedom-loving Reagan will later reel off the names of "disloyal" actors and actresses at a secret session of the House Un-American Activities Committee. Another FBI snitch, fascist cartoon mogul Walt Disney, apparently teetering on the edge of complete mental disintegration, tells the loonies on the Committee that "communists" at his studio are trying to use Mickey Mouse to spread "communist" propaganda.  Gary Cooper and Robert Taylor willingly cooperate with the Committee's smear of their fellow actors. Ginger Rogers' mother, Lela, a long-time friend of J. "Edna" Hoover, tells the Committee that the movie None but the Lonely Heart is highly suspect because it contains an anti-capitalist line in which a son tells his mother...  "You are not going to work here and squeeze pennies from people who are poorer than we are." The Committee agrees that the line is clearly subversive and un-American and concludes that Reagan along with Rogers is "one of the outstanding experts on Communism in the United States."

Chilling: Commie Bill Ayers, of the 1960's Weather Underground, said their group was prepared to execute 25 million Americans (10% of the population) after a successful USA revolution if those people didn't come around to marxist thinking. Recall, this is Obama's Chicago commie buddy and Chavez suppporter, who was recently seen marching in Gaza with Hamas.

the Jew Commies of Hollywood are not going to be the ones putting us in FEMA Camps or an early Grave.. that is reserved for the WASP's becuase only they have the Horse Power to pull it off.

It is kind of like Goldman Sachs..

Goldman is a Shield for JP Morgan.. nothing more.

JP Morgan could fart or Burp and accidently Kill Off Goldman Sachs.. have no illusions to the contrary my friend.

Merry Christmas Buy the Bye! (of Silver and Gold.. or guns and ammo.. or food and medicine.. or physical Solar and Hydro! ONLY!)

Reagan - the zionist lap dog, the third world immigration enabler, the debt blower, the warmonger.

My sentiments exactly - the original (in my adult lifetime) hopey-changey, master of platitudes, sponsored by l'oreal, chief windbag. AND senile. A lot has indeed changed in 30 years but not so much in politics. Nigga please.

Jews screwed you out of your gelt even back in the 80s?

What a tool you are Grifter.

If you were around back in the times of the Hebrew temple the Masons wouldnt even let you sweep the floors.

A shitty Christmas to you and an even worse New Year, but then again for you, thats a given.

When asked by the liberal Hollywood elites why he supported Ronald Reagan, Frank Sinatra said, "Because he's a helluva good guy."  Fast forward to Obama's first Christmas, and there were Mao ornaments on the Christmas tree in the White House.

Very interesting.....from Bloomberg...

Japan and China will promote direct trading of yen and yuan without using dollars and will encourage the development of a market for the exchange, to cut costs for companies, the Japanese government said.

"so what does that mean?"

It's another indicator in the trend of the USD losing its world reserve currency status.
