The West's leaders arrogant, deluded, compromised

How can you win a war you refuse to wage? Against an enemy you refuse to name?

Insight on our political, media, and academic insanity, from here:
In today's conflict with Islamic jihad, the jihadis likewise do not respect their non-Muslim foes. The Infidels are "the most vile of created beings" (Qur'an 98:6) while the Muslims are "the best of peoples" (Qur'an 3:110). There is no sense of shared values. Yet the leaders and opinion makers among the non-Muslims do not understand or accept this. They continue to believe that gestures of good will will be appreciated and reciprocated. They continue to think that their own careful displays of respect for the values and principles of the jihadis will be received with something other than amused contempt. They continue to send their young soldiers into the Afghanistan meat grinder, imagining that they're winning hearts and minds by forcing our soldiers to train their "allies" who, in appallingly increasing numbers, turn on them and murder them as soon as they have the opportunity.

The persecuted Church in Syria

The president cares more about helping jihadists nation-build -- and himself to the luxuries that American taxes and debt can buy -- than helping his (allegedly-) fellow Christians.

As for "Why?" Islam, of course.

From here:
Mourning Christians in Syria were still awaiting answers Monday, July 8, as to why Islamic militants with links to opposition rebels entered Christian villages more than a month ago killing several people, including children, in what locals called a "massacre".

Vatican-backed news agency Fides said the gunmen raided the village of al-Duwayr/Douar, outside the city of Homs near Lebanon, where they immediately executed a man and his daughter in their home and burned their bodies. The fighters reportedly also occupied the village church from where snipers began firing at terrified civilians, killing an- 11-year-old boy and a girl of 18, and injuring some 10 people, two seriously.

Militants remained in the church where they were holding village Mayor Joseph Jamil Adra, a Christian, and another Christian man, Fides said. Their situation was not immediately clear Monday, July 8.

Christian refugees were quoted as saying that the fighters of opposition group Jabhat al-Nusra, which has pledged its allegiance to terror group al-Qaida, also "destroyed and burned all the houses" in the village, prompting the roughly 100 Greek-Orthodox families living in the area to flee.

The time for (what's left of) the Christian West to aid its brothers and sisters in the east is long past-due.

And no, this Crusade doesn't involve President Bush's well-intentioned-but-suicidal nation-building, but it does begin with telling the truth about the enemy.

If Kennedy were running today, the Democrats would burn him

This is an interesting article on the power of narrative in shaping people's opinions. (I disagree that we don't need someone like Reagan and that America's enemies from the last half-century are no longer threats. If anything, they're in power now.)

A few thoughts awaiting moderation there:
A good story is a wonderful thing; the key to its effectiveness in changing perception is the manipulation of emotion. That's what liberals and other charlatans are good at.

Reagan excelled at exposing the nonsense of the Left and reminding people of what made this nation great: Individual Liberty and moral goodness. We don't have anyone today who both really believes in those ideals and can communicate them plainly.

(And when we get close, the media assassins go for the jugular.)

It wasn't that long ago that I could have voted for a Democrat; John F. Kennedy understood that lower taxes -- which is really just increased freedom -- makes people more prosperous, and he believed in and defended America against its enemies.

If Kennedy were running today, the Democrats would burn him at the stake.

A Christian cannot vote Democrat. (If they do, it's because they've accepted uncritically the nescient propaganda of the left. It's like serving on a jury, where a defense lawyer throws out any lie they can think of to create "reasonable doubt" in the minds of at least one juror.)

That party has made the Founding Fathers into potential terrorists and embraces pretty much whatever is perverse, cruel, or tyrannical. It is faithless.

It's too bad that today's Republicans are, by and large, devoid of the passion for freedom and moral rectitude that our Founders and Framers possessed. After all, why vote for a fake liberal when you can get the real thing?

The National Park System doing Darwin's dirty work

If you haven't been to Zion National Park in Utah, you're missing out. It's a cathedral.

Which is ironic, since your tax dollars go to forcing Darwin's creation myth on visitors through the park's tram narration (the only way to ride through Zion's scenic route) and educational displays and programs.

Disturbingly, I observed a park ranger repeatedly telling kids that even though the local Indians drew dinosaurs centuries ago, they didn't actually see any, since the "terrible lizards" lived millions of years before we did.

For a group of people who boast so loudly of their reason and intellect, Darwinists are remarkably superstitious (and ill-informed, intellectually-dishonest, and hypocritical). The only reason that evolutionists claim that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago -- and long before humans -- is because God can't be true. They have to believe -- and force everyone else to believe -- that Life arose by accident from preexisting muck. Millions of years give a tinge of possibility to their fable.

The only problem is, no one has observed the truth of any its core elements. (For example, we do know that random genetic mutations occur in the cells of living things, but these end usually in sickness or death.)

That's why that ranger proselytizes for her irrational religion. That's why she has to convince others -- and herself -- that even though Indians depicted their experience of dinosaurs so many years ago, their art can not mean what it obviously means. She has to have others reject obvious fact in service to her anti-intellectual and anti-empirical religious philosophy, evidence of which no one has observed, ever.

Our public employees should refrain from forcing their religious beliefs on others (especially children) and instead to just stick to the facts as we find them.

Not a Christian nation? America's government an embodiment of the Two Kingdoms: James Madison on Martin Luther

Atheists and other usurpers want to convince the public that the United States was never, in any sense, a Christian nation. Well, there's one problem: the facts don't bear this out.

If it wasn't enough that the Puritans were influenced by it, America's supreme law, the Constitution, is the incarnation of Martin Luther's doctrine of the Two Kingdoms, the idea that the religious and civil realms are, and should be, separate, which is, of course, an explication of Christ's command to "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and give to God what is God's."

How do we know this? James Madison, the Father of the Constitution declares it in an 1821 letter to F. L. Schaeffer:
It illustrates the excellence of a system [American Constitutional government] which, by a due distinction, to which the genius and courage of Luther led the way, between what is due to Caesar and what is due to God, best promotes the discharge of both obligations. The experience of the United States is a happy disproof of the error so long rooted in the unenlightened minds of well-meaning Christians, as well as the corrupt hearts of persecuting usurpers, that without a legal incorporation of religious and civil polity, neither could be supported. A mutual independence is found most friendly to practical Religion, to social harmony, and to political prosperity.

ESPN deceives the public in defense of sodomy-as-"marriage"

In this article about several NFL players possibly declaring their preference for men, ESPN has banned from posting and deleted the comments of (among others) those who support the traditional description of marriage.

(You'll notice that the first few comments visible give the impression that NFL fans/ESPN readers all support homosexuality.)

So, at ESPN, you can name-call, lie, and denigrate religion -- as the militant homosexuals and their Useful Idiots do -- but never, ever refer to sodomy as "sodomy."

(Is this also Disney's official position?)

No one's advocating harming homosexuals. But to use the force of law and the persuasive power of the media to force the acceptance and silence criticism of what is perverse and immoral is a crime against the People.

Who's next for "marriage"? Zoophiles? Pedophiles? Necrophiliacs? Siblings? Farmers? When's Adulterer Pride Month?

Shame on ESPN.

Forget titanoceratops. What about Darwin's titanic fraud?

Linked tangentially to this:
Darwinists are some of the most illogical -- and unintentionally ironic -- of all people, committing the very same thought-"crime" of which they accuse others: Making up stories not only devoid of empirical fact, but opposed by it. (Not to mention, their fairy tales are impossible to verify.)

Who has observed Life arise apart from Life or Life's programs? Who has observed a fish evolve into a reptile, or an ape-like creature into a man?

And when the first modern human arose, with what (not "whom") did he/she/it reproduce? Of course, there was no one else, but Darwinists don't want you to notice that little detail. They make the first man a zoophile who can somehow reproduce with non-humans.

But it must be true! And if you disagree, you're an idiot.

Obama's changing position on sodomy-as-"marriage" not an evolution, but a confession

You don't wake up one day in mid-life and decide that sodomy is a good thing.

Neither does an "expert" on the Constitution decide all-of-a-sudden that what was a "state matter" when unpopular is -- now that's it's picked up some steam -- a matter to be mandated nationally by the Court.

The pseudo-president's misuse of public resources in perverting the Law and subverting our Republic proves his malice. Obama Lawyers Said to Back Gay Marriage at U.S. High Court:
The Obama administration will urge the U.S. Supreme Court to reinstate same-sex marriage in California, taking a stand in a historic case that could lead to gay nuptials across the country, an administration official said.

(Allegedly) former Nazi Franklin Delano Roosevelt nominates covert Nazi convert to head CIA

You just can't make this stuff up.

First, Obama's obliterating the Constitution and bankrupting and disarming the Republic. Then, he nominates a flaming anti-Semite for Secretary of Defense.

Now, he wants a compromised and closeted convert to command our covert collection of critical combatant contemplation and communication:
former Marine platoon commander, FBI swat team leader, and counterterrorism & Muslim Brotherhood expert John Guandolo broke last week [...] that John Brennan, President Obama's nominee to head the CIA, converted to Islam while CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia.

In John's analysis, Brennan's conversion represents the culmination of a campaign against Brennan by a foreign intelligence service. Giving Brennan the most charitable benefit of the doubt, this reveals Brennan's susceptibility to manipulation. By itself, the secret circumstances of this conversion to the religion that is also the basis for jihad war to entrench the totalitarian legal-political system of sharia should be troubling. But coupled with Brennan's activities as the president's top counterterrorism adviser -- frequent, close work with Islamic organizations (e.g., ISNA) that operate on behalf of terrorists groups (Hamas, a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood) -- Brennan should certainly and without question not be confirmed.

Will our lawmakers, our representatives, our last, best and only hope, act on this information, or even seek an account of his activities from Brennan himself? Last week, no senator put a single question to Brennan regarding his associations with MB groups, his (at best) lame public statements regarding Al Qaeda's ideology (nothing to do with Islam, in Brennan's view), or his touting of Hezbollah's "moderate elements" and "legitimate" mechanisms.
Great job, America. You elected Hitler to end the Holocaust.

Ironic Gore

From here:
the fact that we have 24/7 propaganda masquerading as news, it does have an impact.
That's a certain text.

(He's got to be joking, right?)

Liberals can't be honest without revealing their hatred of Liberty

Capitalism is nothing more than economic Liberty. A fact the utterance of which causes Liberals' heads to explode.

Here's a reply to someone so dishonest, it makes one wonder whether he's able to tell the truth:
"stretch"? [...] Aren't you embarrassed?

[...]

Your idea of "argument" is so [...]incoherent that it makes one wonder whether a response is beneficial at all.

It's not "sophistry"; it's called "reading."

Essentially, if I were to say, "The sky is blue," you'd respond with something along the lines of, "No it's not. It's a collection of gases held against the Earth by gravity. It's got nothing to do with color."

For illiterate tyrants like you, the following terms are all indicative of Liberty, since all involve individual choices made free from the control of government:
"private or corporate ownership of capital goods"

"investments that are determined by private decision"

"prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined [...] by competition in a free market."
Please, offer something honest [...] in reply.

Buying Al Gore: A good investment for jihad

Have you ever noticed how liberals oppose Capitalism for others but not for themselves? Free men can do whatever they want with their property, even Al Gore. If only his rank hypocrisy were the sole story here!

The father of Anthropogenic Global Warming -- someone who's made a fortune foaming-at-the-mouth about our use of fossil fuels destroying the planet and who helped create an industry used by governments to further enslave their citizens -- just sold his mostly-unused television network to the emir of Qatar.

I guess Big Oil isn't evil if the check is big enough.

And there's something much more menacing about Al Gore's new owners and what this arrangement means for the United States: Al-Jazeera is a propaganda arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose stated goal is to destroy Western Civilization from within. They own now not only a lobbyist who was only a few hundred votes from the presidency, but in taking over Current TV, it won't be just PBS airing their jihadist nonsense -- they've gained access into homes across the nation.

Here's another nail in the coffin:
“Of course Al didn’t show up [to a meeting with his new masters],” said one high placed Current staffer. “He has no credibility.

"He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising—and Al Gore, that bulls***ter sells to the emir?”

The meeting, while not contentious, was, according to staffers who spoke on the condition of anonymity, miserable. The mostly left-leaning group—some still in denial —weren’t buying what Al Jazeera was selling.
Oil? The Left's not buying that, since they hate whatever makes us prosperous. But jihad and shari'a -- the antithesis of Christianity, Liberty, and our modern notions of human rights -- they buy that in bulk.

A glimpse into what makes Nick Saban a champion (and why the rest of us aren't)

Without a playoff between conference winners, college football will never have an actual champion, but there's no doubt that Alabama's Nick Saban is one of the sport's best coaches. His teams have won three of the last four BCS national titles.

Here's a glimpse into what makes him -- and his teams -- so good:
The other day, the coach told a story about his father that drove him to something resembling actual emotion. When he was 11, he said, he started working at his father's service station in West Virginia, a full-service joint with a Dairy Queen attached to it; he cleaned windows, he checked oil, he gauged the tires, and he washed cars. He especially hated the blue and the black ones, because if his dad found a single streak, he'd make him start over again.

"That sort of perfectionist type of attitude that my parents instilled in me," he said, "that's probably still the foundation of the program we have right now."

[. . .]

This morning, in the conference room of the hotel where I'm staying, I went to a press conference where Saban, summoning a photograph smile, posed with four separate national championship trophies — and if ever there is proof of the laggardness of college football's present system, it's that we still need four separate trophies — and in the midst of it, someone asked Saban a simple question: Why? In other words, why keep doing this, and why keep striving, and why not pull a Spurrier and slip off to the golf course on some August afternoon during a two-a-days and delegate to one's coaching staff? Like, why so uptight, man? And Saban sort of stared down the questioner for a second, and then he said this: "Why do you do what you do? Are you driven to be the best at what you do?"

And as Saban's eyes bored into the deepest recesses of the reporter's conscience, he replied, "Yes, sir."
What else could he say?

And here's a bit that illustrates the difference between those who achieve greatness and the rest of us:
From there, Saban wound into a story that centered on an old Martin Luther King sermon about a shoeshine man who took pride in his work, and he said something about being the best street sweeper you could be, and I think we got a little glimpse of why Saban is one of the best living-room recruiters who ever blew through the South. I hurried back toward my hotel room, all fired up to be the best damned street sweeper I could be, just as soon as I stopped at Starbucks and checked Twitter and Facebook and watched a few minutes of CNN and ESPN and stared out at the pool seven stories below my window and let another hour of my life pass me by without accomplishing much of anything except the completion of this sentence.
So, at what are you driven to be the best?

Planned Parenthood murders record number of babies

Slaughtering the innocent is their business, and business is good:
According to annual reports, the organization performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, 329,445 in 2010, making the total number of abortions in three years to 995,687.
One million innocent children butchered by Planned Parenthood alone.

How can a free and decent people allow such depravity? This is America's modern holocaust.
