Ronnie Raygun: The Youtube Chronicles

I found a few interesting clips on the Youtube featuring cowboy Ronnie, America’s 40th president. The first clip features two speech excerpts (one at the U.N.) where Reagan ruminates on the unifying effect that the threat of an alien invasion would have on Earth’s leaders and inhabitants.

During Reagan’s second term, it was obvious that the Soviets were bankrupt, and no longer a viable national security threat. A new fear-inducing bogeyman menace was needed to maintain the government psychopath’s control over the populace. This existential threat was dropped in favor of the “Clash of Civilizations” narrative using religion and cultural differences to pit man against man. The CIA funded and trained Islamic Jihadist took the place of the space invader as a means to manipulate the people using fear and religious-based hatred.

In the next clip, an anti-nuclear protester (possibly one of the Bee Gees) storms the stage while Ronnie is giving a speech in Las Vegas. The man shatters a large crystal award that was given to Reagan by the National Association of Broadcasters sending shards of glass into his face. The take down was swift and comical.

This is a commercial Reagan did for Boraxo soap. A young Patti Davis was even brought into the ad to drive home the evil soap-pushers clean hands agenda. Ronnie always delivered his lines just like he was told.

This next clip features Ronnie telling a bald-faced lie (or possibly the truth) regarding the Iran-Contra fiasco. There was much that Reagan was kept out of the loop on during his reign. George H.W. Bush controlled the shots in the Reagan years just like Sith Lord Cheney does today. This clip reminds me of Clinton’s finger-wagging denial of having “sexual relations with that woman.”

Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty ~ Ronald Wilson Reagan

If the people knew what we had done, they would chase us down the street and lynch us ~ George H.W. Bush

    My memories of the Reagan regime-

    -the phrase “trickle down eceonomics”
    -the foreclosing of farms
    -a paralyzing fear of nuclear war
    -his colon

    i went to bookstore in Grants Pass Oregon, in the back of which was displayed an elaborate shrine dedicated to Reagan- “America’s Greatest President”. i’ll never understand how people can think that.

    At Theory My Culture, John wrote about how Reaganomics changed the American perception of poverty forever, making us feel ashamed of financial struggle. You should check it out.

    Trickle-down economics = golden shower debt prison slavery

    Top three Presidents in order: Washington, Lincoln, Reagan.

    I bet when Peepers was a young conspiracy theorist he pointed out that his name was 6 in first name, 6 in middle, and 6 in last.

    Ahhh the joys of being a conspiracy theorist, eh Peepers?

    Johnnypeeper’s response:

    It is no greater a joy than the exhilaration of becoming an entry-level fractional banker stooge.

    Tore down the Berlin Wall, helped break up the Iron Curtain, cleaned up the shit from Jimmy Carter, freed hostages in Iran, started the “Star Wars” program which is now a reality.

    Peepers, don’t be jealous and I’m not fractional.

    Johnnypeeper’s response:

    I’m sorry.

    1. Reagan did not tear down the Berlin wall; the peoples of Eastern Europe put pressure on their governments to force opening towards the West. All Reagan did was give another hyperbole-riddled speech.

    2. US support for the Afghani resistance to the USSR is widely credited with sapping the Soviet Union of its strength (in the process, giving birth to the Taliban and Al Qaeda). It wasn’t just Reagan though. Carter started the military support of the Afghans. It was Jimmy Carter who ordered the Olympic Boycott and the embargo on grain exports to the USSR in response to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
    Reagan is widely credited for inspiring European dissident groups to resist Soviet Authority. This is a ridiculous revision of history. Central European resistance to the Soviets began almost as soon as the Red Army arrived (Stalin murdered hundreds of Polish officers during WWII for their resistance to Soviet post-war ambitions). Hungarian resistance in 1956 is well known as is the 1968 “Prague Spring.”
    Resistance to the Soviets occurred throughout East-Central Europe with little encouragement from ANY US President. There was a violent uprising against the Soviets in East Germany in June, 1953. Polish resistance to the Soviets had successfully toppled two Polish Communist leaders (one in 1956, another in 1970) decades before Reagan was elected. Poland also saw a wave of national strikes and violent demonstrations in 1976. Solidarity was founded in 1980 (before Reagan took office) – hardly the first East European resistance movement. The main Czechoslovakian dissident group was called Charter ’77 – not because Reagan did anything in 1977 but because of the 1975 Helsinki accords on Human Rights which the Czech government had signed and ratified through a law in 1976. Charter ’77 was a dissident petition that had the goal of forcing the Czechoslovak government to abide by the Helsinki treaty it had signed but ignored. Incidentally, it was Carter – not Reagan – who pressured the Soviets on applying the Helsinki Accords faithfully.
    Reagan should share some credit – along with a number of US Presidents – for “Winning the Cold War.” But the most credit should go to the people of East-Central Europe who never fully accepted Soviet rule and eventually overthrew it through repeated uprisings.

    3. What shit from Jimmy Carter? Be specific, please.

    4. Yes, he free hostages in Iran after his handlers struck a secret deal to ensure the hostages would be held until after the election.

    5. I don’t know the facts concerning the reality of Star Wars at this time so I cannot comment, but I will say that you can build as many missle defense systems as you want. As long as the modus operandi is death and destruction instead of peace and diplomacy, you’ll always be threatened by someone or something.

    “Excuse me, President Reagan”….”President Reagan!!!” Boom, Smash, Crash. Has anyone heard of ole Richard since then? Richard must have received a thorough thrashing for daring to scare the old coot into comprehension. Did you see the look of fear on Ronnie’s face? He thought the uprising had officially began. Great job by his security detail. The cat could have smashed the old bastard over the head with it.

    “clean hands agenda” hahaha, good one.

    Manco asked, “What shit from Jimmy Carter? Be specific, please.”

    Iran, Hezbollah, North Korea, Panama Canal, stagflation, the “malaise” speech, sweaters, gas Lines, windfall profits tax, Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, SALT II, Nicaragua’s Sandinista revolution, the grain embargo, the Moscow Olympics boycott, Angola, Ethiopia, Camp David … I could go on, but it’s so depressing.

    I even remember him kissing Brezhnev. And more recently he was kissing Castro. That’s every bit as bad as Bush II doing the Saudi Sword dance.

    If Carter is our generation’s Warren G. Harding, Bush II would be our Herbert Hoover. Interesting fact; Ronald Reagan and Theodore Roosevelt were both refered to as “Cowboy” presidents.
