WATCH: Trump Reads FDR’s Historic D-Day Prayer–Reveals How Far Democrats Have Fallen

It is a prayer that really proves just how far the Democrat Party has fallen from true Americanism

In Britain, President Donald Trump read aloud the prayer President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued during the D-Day campaign in 1944. It is a prayer that really proves just how far the Democrat Party has fallen from true Americanism because no Democrat would ever utter such words today.

Trump was taking part in the D-Day commemoration in Portsmouth, U.K., on Tuesday and took time to read aloud the D-Day prayer that America’s WWII-time president issued to petition God to watch over our troops as they invaded the European mainland to defeat the Nazis.

Watch as President Trump reads the prayer:

But the text of the prayer is stark when compared to how the Democrat Party acts today.

Remember, this prayer was written for and read by F.D.R., one of the Democrat Party’s biggest heroes.

Here is now F.D.R. started his prayer: “Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.”

In its very first line the prayer proves to be as far away from today’s Democrat ethos as you can imagine. It seeks God’s blessing on the pride of our nation, our soldiers. No Democrat would appeal to God for anything today, much less victory at war. And, worse, they would never consider our soldiers to be the “pride of our nation.”

Nor would any Democrat today — from the top leadership to the very last Democrat voter — ever pray to preserve our Republic, our religion, or our civilization.

After all, “our civilization” is no better than anyone else’s, they now say. And who cares about evil religion? And our “Republic”? They seek to tear that to shreds every single day. They don’t want that old white men’s regime preserved.

At another point in the prayer, F.D.R. pleads with “Almighty God” and promises to “rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.” That is another thing in which Democrats no longer believe.

In closing, F.D.R. asked God to help the U.S. “prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy.” Once again… “enemy”? No Democrat sees any foreign force — not even ISIS — as an “evil enemy.” Only the U.S.A. is evil in the estimation of today’s Democrat Party.

F.D.R.’s entire prayer runs 100 percent contrary to the Democrat Party’s main ideals today. It shows just how full of hate and how un-American the Democrats have become.

Here is the full text of F.D.R.’s June 6, 1944, prayer:

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest-until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with the violences of war.

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.

And for us at home — fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas — whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them–help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.

Many people have urged that I call the Nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

Give us strength, too — strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God.

Amen.

Roosevelt read the prayer on the radio to the entire nation on June 6, 1944. Here is a recording of that radio address:

Trump Lashes Out At Democrats, Claims ‘Zero’ Fairness In House Impeachment Inquiry

Published

on

President Trump, well known for being a counterpuncher, has had enough of the Democratic Party taking shots at him, raking him over the coals, and being in the way of him accomplishing the agenda he set out to accomplish when campaigning for president back in 2015-2016. The latest scheme of the Democrats is, of course, the impeachment proceedings, with the Senate trial set to begin this week. Trump has claimed there has been “zero fairness” for him by the radical left in this country who have been on a witch hunt to see him removed from office for a long, long time. Here’s more from Fox News: “They didn’t want John Bolton and others in the House. They were in too much of a rush. Now they want them all in the Senate. Not supposed to be that way!” Trump tweeted Monday, referring to Democrat-sought witnesses like Bolton, his ex-national security adviser. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1219285375736328192 “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer is now asking for ‘fairness,’ when he and the Democrat House members worked together to make sure I got ZERO fairness in the House,” he continued. “So, what else is new?” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1219286662221651970 The president’s tweet comes just hours after Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., vowed to “force votes on witnesses and documents” in the impeachment trial, which is slated to begin Tuesday. “We Democrats aim to get the truth,” Schumer said. “Make no mistake about it, we will force votes on witnesses and documents, and it will be up to four Republicans to side with the Constitution, to side with our democracy, to side with the rule of law, and not side, in blind obeisance, to President Trump and his desire to suppress the truth. Because, in my judgment, he probably thinks he’s guilty.” One thing liberals have never been able to stand…

Gun Rights Activists In Virginia Want Northam To Step Down: ‘Racist Ralph Has Got To Go’

Published

on

Things are heating up in Virginia as pro-Second Amendment citizens of the state show up at a massive pro-gun protest rally to let the state government, particularly Gov. Ralph Northam — the blackface guy — know exactly what they think of the gun ban being pushed by Democrats in the government. Protesters made it clear in no uncertain terms they’ve had enough of Northam, as they demanded that he step down from his position immediately. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Hey-hey, ho-ho, racist Ralph has got to go,” the protesters chanted about Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat. https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1219252570612555776 Thousands of Second Amendment activists took to the streets for a rally on Monday in response to sweeping gun legislation proposed by Northam and the commonwealth’s Democratic-controlled General Assembly. https://twitter.com/MichaelCoudrey/status/1219270532668915713 The legislation would limit purchases of handguns to once a month, virtually ban military-style weapons, and give local governments the authority to seize guns from people law enforcement deems a threat to the public. The proposed measure has sparked outrage among gun enthusiasts in the state, where nearly 100 towns, cities, and counties have declared themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries.” https://twitter.com/gmoomaw/status/1219275065000415233 Our Founding Fathers would truly be proud of the people of Virginia for opposing tyranny and standing up boldly for their God-given right to defend themselves from oppressive government by upholding the Second Amendment, featured prominently in the Bill of Rights in the Constitution. This is precisely why they also enshrined freedom of speech in the Constitution, to enable every day citizens to air their grievances with the government and allow like-minded individuals to form movements that would put pressure on elected officials to uphold the law of the land. Kudos, Virginia.
