As we count our blessings this holiday season, let us also say a prayer of thanks for all the men and women at Pearl Harbor who sacrificed their lives for our freedom on that fateful December 7th, 1932.
It is a privilege to live in a nation that has revered liberty since its inception, and I am thankful to all who protect it.
I hope you keep reading for an update on what’s happening in Washington and my visit throughout the Lone Star state.
All the best,
Mandela Will Live In History for Defenders of Liberty
Sen. Cruz honored former South African President Nelson Mandela’s passing and expressed gratitude for his many years of service:
“Nelson Mandela will live in history as an inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe. He stood firm for decades on the principle that until all South Africans enjoyed equal liberties he would not leave prison himself, declaring in his autobiography, ‘Freedom is indivisible; the chains on any one of my people were the chains on all of them, the chains on all of my people were the chains on me.’ Because of his epic fight against injustice, an entire nation is now free.
“We mourn his loss and offer our condolences to his family and the people of South Africa.”

Nelson is a tricky one as you can’t really put him in the same basket as people like Sharon as they never repented for their actions or the actions of Irgun or Stern atrocities which could never be used as a justification for survival.
A lot of blurring of what Nelson stood for and what his wife did in his name, many of her atrocious actions were done at a time when Nelson was incommunicado and of course they split and the ANC did factionalise between what Winnie wanted and did and what Nelson wanted to do.
We could point the terrorist finger at so many out there, some deservedly like Ariel Sharon who seemed to revel in the deaths of British peacekeepers and Palestinians unable to defend themselves, he certainly copied a lot of SS tactics by ordering Palestinians to be herded into Mosques and then the Mosques were attacked by the IDF airforce and rocketry, yes I think that he could be classed 100% as a man of terror.
But look to history, was Wat Tyler a terrorist? The Crown certainly thought so and they hung him for his revolt yet he achieved the very thing in his sacrifice, the Puritans on the Mayflower were seen by pretty much everybody as a bit extremist and the Crown again deemed them terrorists, what they did to the native Americans probably bears out a just label but I imagine there were atrocities in the war of Independence that have been hailed as fighting for freedom but were anything but a sadist human beating up on the little people and nailing their justification to a cause as to why.
Who were the terrorists in the Indian mutiny? Was it the Muslims inciting the Hindus to acts of revolt based on propaganda and lies? Was it the Hindu’s who killed thousands of British settlers and officials in some fairly horrific ways or was it the British soldiers who inflicted some equally horrific reprisals on the perpetrators? Surprisingly Queen Victoria on hearing of little children muzzle loaded onto cannon and killed by British soldiers actually intervened on behalf of the Indians and major changes to India’s autonomy started to come into play.
Worth thinking about as too many people out there are quick to label but the old adage of one mans freedom fighter is another mans terrorist, Gandhi was a terrorist and all he did was passively resist, he sat down and that became an act of terrorism yet he harmed no one (Well he killed 2.5m people in the botched and hurried partition of India)
“The hero of the anti-apartheid struggle was not the saint we want him to be.
The image of Nelson Mandela as a selfless, humble, freedom fighter turned cheerful, kindly old man, is well established in the West. If there is any international leader on whom we can universally heap praise it is surely he. But get past the halo we’ve placed on him without his permission, and Nelson Mandela had more than a few flaws which deserve attention.
He signed off on the deaths of innocent people, lots of them
Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilising terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists.”
Did ted cruz really say 1932 for pearl harbor?
You’d think if he was going to pay lip service he’d at least get the year right?
just cruz control….. fricken idiot
Oh yea… And who really gives a shit about man- della… I surely don’t…. And for other humans that do terrible things… they will get whats coming to them also…One way or another…. God works in mysterious ways, and He always gets His revenge….
it’s people who work in mysterious ways and god,the creator,knows nothing of revenge.
yeah,you got that right.they’re all assholes.
We Americans have seen enough to know that ANYONE that is ‘celibrated” by our Politicians is not someone that we, the people, would celebrate. But it does make sense that “terrorists will celebrate other terrorists.”
When Mandela went to prison he was 6’4”. When he came out he was 5’9”, which is just one fact that has people questioning if Mandela even made it out prison alive. Many believe that a “double” was “inserted” in Mandela’s place after being killed in prison, and that this double continued on in a life of luxury while pretending to be Madiba.
One of the friends of this double was Charles Taylor, and it was Taylor who helped finance the 9-11 fiasco here in America.
Like I stated before, Mandela, the double, died on June 25th of 2013. Why are “they” just now “letting him die?” Let’s see, 6 is a major symbol of the Elite, and it just so happens that 6 months after the death on June 25th we have December 25th….Christmas Day. Folks, we could be in for a whopper of a false flag.
thanks for the info… I was aware that he might have croaked earlier, but of course thats a conspiracy theory…. keep posting, awesome job… appreciate it…
