The Post's Jennifer Rubin Raves About Lackluster Biden Speech

"Com. Joe Biden has single handedly raised the stakes and made the world a more dangerous place. As horrifying as these verbal mistakes are, they pale when compared to Biden's bungling of the Ukraine war. The truth is, Joe Biden and his foreign policy team had no plan. They have been reactive from the start. Allowing other European countries to take the lead on sanctions and arms shipments scared to rock the boat or to make any decisive move that might intimidate Vladimir Putin. I mean, we lagged behind England. They just confiscated two jets, belonging to Russian oligarchs. What has the United States seized? Answer nothing. Biden fans are ecstatic that he traveled to Poland and delivered an inspirational talk Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post columnist, tweeted in real time, Biden makes a speech akin to those at the Brandenburg gate by JFK and Reagan. His delivery is quite strong. She quote. This is how low the bar is now set. If Biden can read a speech without bizarre whispering or stumbles galore, that's considered success. To the pathetic Jen Rubens of the world. Never mind that the speech in question contributed nothing new, no proposals that could end the invasion, much less win the war. Instead, Biden repeated his assurance. We stand with Ukraine. What does that mean? Does it keep women and children from being slaughtered? Does it give them food to eat?

"Look at this talk to Paul. This is the Brandenburg Gate. Absolutely packed full of Germans and do this to another one too and I watched a lot of this live A. KNBR. Protesting against a mask nobody's wearing a mask. Oh, look at that contrast that even to Texas where we buy you our independence and you know no one's wearing a mask million people in the street saying we've had enough for taking back our freedom and and I watched it live and they were just average people but the New York Times and you mentioned this in your piece today you really captured. It The New York Times, call them all a bunch of Nazis conspiracy theorists. You know that's how they just discount anyone. But there were also protests elsewhere in Europe and I think UK Netherlands other places people are getting fed up they're demanding their freedom they're taking off their masks. They've had it. You know, and that's very good news story. So the way I see what's happening in our country is. Something, has been accomplished that foreign enemies never could we've lived through the twentieth century? We had the fascist and communist in the violence in the wars and all, but we never gave up our liberties. But now we're doing this and it's internal. That's why the founders were smart enough to talk about foreign and domestic this we're doing this to ourselves I mean, no, no invader came in but it was an invasion of ideas and invasion of demagoguery. And people have been course in this this this just didn't pop up in the last month or two. This has been popping up probably since the thirties as the infiltration of the professors who teach this stuff you know raise up a generation after generation. That's the way I could see very clearly in Washington how the education system of the last forty or fifty years taught everybody to be occasion. Yeah and not even know about a monetary system I had one person was pretty weird story somebody on the Banking Committee after I brought up the. Subject of gold and it was. It talked a little bit about it and the congresswoman came over to me afterwards and had to be little quite wrong. Are we still on the coast. I thought she's been to public school. And this is what's going on here. They they do. They listen to this and we're doing it to ourselves. That's what's so sad. But that's also the reason that I claim. It's an ideological war. There's there's now violence coming about it, but that's secondary a secondary because what's going to happen if ANTIFA in black lives matter keep doing this and burning the city Stan believe me there's GonNa be retaliation but. I think it's amazing Lee quiet compared to the damage done to the cities and the outrage of people doing this and the police joining them.

Germany marks 30th anniversary of Berlin Wall's fall

"Another anniversary is coming up this weekend but this one is celebratory Germany as marking thirty years. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall that led to the downfall of communist rule in eastern Europe and the reunification of East and West Germany. Our Sam Western spoke about it. With reporter Sara your motto. Who is in Berlin? So Oh Sarah could you tell me how the city of Berlin has been preparing for the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. So yeah so this week. The city Berlin has had a number of exhibitions and installations that will culminate in a sort of celebration at the Brandenburg Berchtesgaden. On Saturday the actual thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the wall and there have been other sorts of commemorations throughout the city. As I mentioned there will be via concert With lots of music from the eighty nine ninety era and a large demonstration of ribbons sort of flying and floating over that road leading up to the Brandenburg Gate how receptive of people being to these celebrations. And how important are all of a in the day to day lives of people living in Berlin run of the historians. I spoke to said that there has been a huge difference in the emotional emotional climate in Germany. Just in the last five years everyone says that the twenty fifth anniversary in two thousand fourteen was this huge celebration and people were really happy about it this year. Things are a little bit different. This anniversary this occasion has given people an opportunity to talk about the legacy of reunification folks on the east have some agitation and some a lot of nuance feelings. But some uncomfortable feelings. About the fact that a country they had lived in basically just disappeared and for better for worse. They say it wasn't necessarily a reunification of Germany but that West Germany overtook Doc East Germany. And there's also mixed feelings on the western side too because for many years after the country was reunified. The tax system was set up in such a way that the West German states contributed extra funds to encourage the redevelopment of East Germany. So so all of which is to say. There's definitely more awareness that there are fractures within German society and people are talking about them. I mean that's interesting testing because that reflective attitude is not something you tend to associate with the fall of the Berlin Wall with the images of celebration. You've you've chosen to use the wall itself as a way to kind of tell these stories. Could you just talk about the reporting that you've done in the buildup to the thirty year anniversary on some of the things that you've discovered. Yeah definitely and the wall has become the physical wall itself has become a really interesting way to tell this story because even though the collapse of East Germany happened thirty years ago steps to commemorate the Physical Wall and preserve it and catalog. It didn't happen for a long long time and it sort of ties into what we were saying before about the current environment in Germany the country is now in the later stages of reunification really beginning to grapple with the legacy and so we chose to do that through trying to track her wall and one of these stories stories so you searching for a lost piece of wool of the broken heart of Berlin. Could you just tell us about that story. And how you went about finding this last piece of all this is one of the. I think one of my favorite stories have done in my career as a journalist as we started our reporting a few months ago in advance of this anniversary. Try to find out how many pieces of the wall still existed around the world and there. Aren't that many there. Are referenced. The two it's a broken heart there. Are these two to pieces of the wall. Each piece has half of a red heart. It had been originally painted nineteen eighty-four by artists in West Germany. At the time of the wall fell it got a lot of attention. A Home Builder in New Jersey of all people managed to get a contract with the East German government and import them into the. US US they were the first pole pieces of the Berlin Wall to be brought into the US. There's a lot of demand for these pieces and the New Jersey man who I mentioned who imported them's names Joseph Morelli he brokered a deal with a financial advisor in North Carolina. Who really wanted one of those pieces and bought it to feature her in a museum he was establishing so Joe Morelli put it on a flatbed truck sent it down to North Carolina but the left peace? It's fate had been a mystery basically ever since and there had been a lot of red herrings and diverted tactics we gone through old newspaper clips. Some of which said that it went for auction at Christie's called Christie's they said they never done any such sale in a note I was talking about. We also heard that there. May they have been attempts to steal it so anyway in trying to prove or disprove some of these rumors I ended up speaking with people at the. US As Intrepid Museum which is where the two pieces of the heart were originally displayed. At first. They didn't know where it was. And then after a deep record search they found that they had sent sent the left piece of the wall to the German American pop artist. Peter Max in two thousand six that led me

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall

"Reagan today a tribute to the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall it's on a site overlooking the location where president Reagan delivered his legendary speech imploring Mister Gorbachev tear down this wall well that was quite a memory anyway we have our Westwood One news correspondent jazz Henry standing by live in Berlin this morning so jazz good morning to you are actually good afternoon to you or early it's about it's about mid day right now and that was nineteen eighty seven the president Reagan made that speech at the Brandenburg gate two years later not necessarily a direct cause and effect a correlation but two years later the walking down we celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of that to your tomorrow so it would that was a big big celebration the whole world celebrated with the with the German people when that happened but you know then they came to review the reality of reuniting east and West Germany and integrating them into the society of Europe so she was very celebratory van what's it like now sh well people are still happy particularly those who were alive at the time they can contrast what East Germany was like at the time and what it's like now but there a lot of people been born since then and some of them living in the eastern parts of Germany I feel that still yet today the economy is not as vibrant in that part of the country job opportunities perhaps educational opportunities don't match what's that exists in the west some people in the government here are admitting that there were some mistakes made when that they actually unified the east was just sort of brought into the western constitution there's some other things that might have been done differently but say it's hard to completely second gas because compared to many countries around the world be Germany has in you know what might seem a long time were short time depending on your view thirty years brought about quite to impress the reunification so are we listen to your montage that you made for us just a couple of minutes ago and at the end the woman was saying that the people in the east still don't feel I guess equal economically you know to the west is did you find that I've talked to some of people living in the eastern part of the country who formerly lived under the the old government and of course they say you know life is better now that we can travel you know we're not so contained and there's not be a network but foreman's that's one has to worry about the Stasi security service keeping an eye on everyone but they said that in the old west and East Germany there was sort of a collective mindset and neighborhood mindset that it was sort of grew from the better aspects of the communist ideal of people helping each other they say when they became in essence taken over by the west that said you know the capitalist system of every person out for themselves doggy dog what was hard to get used to and a lot of people particularly were sort of mid career at that time had a hard time making the jump of the sort that angle Americal has made a force you she's been chancellor here for fourteen years originally an east German but she's really more the exception than the rule in how well easterners have done but there are signs that slowly the economy salaries and such in the east are improving to up Terry T. with the west but that's still not the case chancellor Merkel of course open wide the the doors of Germany to refugees and a lot of them ended up in Berlin and we have young people the young workers coming from all across Europe in into Berlin so what are the company's able to hire them well they they into at both related and many of them into the eastern part of Germany someone in the in the western

nineteen seventies and so in the east there are people who are feeling you know I should be paid more for the work that I do there should be better opportunities and look there these people who don't look like me being brought into our city to be settled yeah they're probably going to compete for the same jobs and that's led to some dissatisfaction three mentioned the the unveiling or the showing of the statue of Ronald Reagan today what other kinds of celebrations are being planned well there's a big party is scheduled for tomorrow evening at the Brandenburg gate course the Brandenburg gate is where president Kennedy spoke in nineteen sixty three or call each bin ein Berliner speech president Reagan as we mentioned in nineteen eighty seven it's been the center of the city sense the eighteen hundreds of sort of ceremonial center so there will be a big concert there now there's some possibility it might be raining so that I could have it have an impact but as you can imagine that since this is Germany there'll be classical music and this is the evening wears on there will be a lot of like trying to dance music but if everyone were looking to see what sort of crowd might come out for that tree even putting the weather aside but I'm guessing it's probably a larger major going to be an older crowd people who remember the it's just the amazement of what happened November

"It is a few more comments and we'll close this out but you know the day the Berlin Wall fell and I was a kid at the time internalizing all of it from the TV ad in my living room Sam's ABC news colleague Peter Jennings described the developments as quote that's the most important announcement made in central Europe since the end of World War two and certainly since the wall went up in nineteen sixty one and on that day Americans knew they were watching history we often remember and we discuss today president Reagan's speech at the Brandenburg gate as another defining moment on the path for the Soviet union's demise but in June nineteen eighty seven it didn't seem that way at all in fact it hardly made news in America it wasn't until the wall came down in nineteen eighty nine that those four powerful world words tear down this wall truly echoed around the world and that's the nature of history sometimes you know you are witnessing sometimes you only realize it years later and looking back you can all hear inevitable we have that debate today and therefore almost on remarkable but not even president Reagan or President Bush knew when the wall will come down or how the Cold War would end but they didn't know it was a cause worth fighting for and back in eighty nine on that day the wall fell president Reagan join one Sam Donaldson live on the air from his home in California and this is a transcript so please don't correct because we got off of the transfer service the question was asked do you think you would come down this soon president Reagan responded I didn't know when it would come but I have to tell you I'm an eternal optimist I believe with all my heart that it was in the future and maybe that's the most important lesson today that like presidents Reagan and bush we.

He's so ineffective that wouldn't be able to get anything done, and they are so far from having pulled that off. Now, Trump is really ordering the entire world.

We're not going to apologize for being a superpower, whether we're the only one or not. We are not gonna let our pockets be picked just to show that we're nice people or just to show that we don't intend anybody any harm, and we're not gonna let enemies take advantage of.

Somebody's other nations have so little, and we don't want him to think we're lauding anything over them. And what Trump is saying is that those days are over. We're not gonna let enemies take advantage of us. We're not gonna do things Justice show that we're nice guys, we're going to start looking out for our interests.
