READING UP A TREE, SCOUTING, & SOCIAL ENGINEERING

October 12, 2017

 

Remember:     “Implementation follows Victory.”

________________________________________

I had an intense and vivid memory this morning as I was warming up my breakfast, such as it was:

Breakfast

In my mind, I was back on the Illinois prairie,  about eleven years old,   pretty much what they called a “tomboy”  — and reading a book,  up a tree.

It was a magnificent tree!

big tree

Something  like that, only more branches..   On those hot summer days I was usually up in one of the higher branches that became a big chaise lounge for me.    Sometimes I didn’t even read,  just put my book down and absorbed the feel of nature,  the steady sounds of the bugs and the bees and the locusts.    Butterflies came sometimes if I weren’t too high.

gnarly limbs

Occasionally my friends came too, when their mothers released them from their chores.  My mother worked in the city;  I was an “only” child,  so I was free all day.  Free as a bird!   (As long as I didn’t break any rules,  I could do whatever I wanted to do.  Such freedom!)

Maybe because I was alone a lot I always wanted to join the Girl Scouts*.

GS Troop

So, when I woke up this morning,  today the radio was still on from the night before , and I heard about “Scouting.”      The poor Boy Scouts who seem to have, in the past few years, lost their way as a group to teach boys how to grow into Christian manhood, (which was their original purpose),  have announced that they are going to start accepting girls into their boys’ club.

(“Implementation follows victory.”)

Now, it’s clear that the idea of Christian manhood as a goal for our American boys is an idea that is mocked and ridiculed.     Any teenage boy want to grow up to be a good Christian gentleman?   He would be publicly disparaged and socially isolated –  and accused of all the  common Marxist “sins.”

Cultural Marxism poster 150I’m sure most everyone has noticed, by now, that the Extreme Leftists,  the socialists,  whatever you want to call them,  have completed their Marxist Cultural Revolution in American Society — as it is presented to us by the entertainment-news media.

They haven ‘t won the hearts and minds (and commonsense) of the American people, but there seems to be nowhere that the Cultural Marxists have not infiltrated and taken control.

So the controversy engendered by this latest Scouting announcement is a clear one.  Yes or No.   Black or White.   Boy or Girl.

(“Implementation follows victory.”)

Another Yes or No news item this morning:  a nearby school district is debating whether to have transgendered bathroom in the whole school district. Mostly boys entering girls bathroom and locker rooms and showers.  They are implementing the false idea of “gender neutrality.”
The principles of Marxist social engineering has claimed the word “gender,”  a grammatical term,  not a scientific term,  for itself and uses “gender”  to hammer at human reality.    Those who don’t know the difference between “sex” and “gender”  are confused — and easily persuaded because they don’t want to be accused of being . . .   not nice.   Or attracting attention.   Or getting in trouble.  Or something.

Those involved in implementation the social changes that are being engineered will win, I think.   The (few) voices from the Left are mean and strident, domineering and bullying.

Divide and conquer.    Make those who disagree with you seem   unreasonable and weak in their protestations.      Then take away their power —

Another news item this morning illustrating the loss of power and control for ordinary American citizens:      One of our state senators has announced he’s going to run for governor at the next election.   Why?  Because he disagrees with the policies of the Leftist, Progressive leaders of his party, who have just shut him down:  in the senate that means he was taken off of all his committees and now has a very weak and unheard voice in future debates.   The bad thing is,  the people who elected this man agree with him and sent him to our state legislature in order to implement these ideas.

But they have no victory – so they can have no implementation.  No voice.

It’s what politics has become.   “Agree with me or you don’t get a voice.”     It’s called the Swamp.   And it may be going on in your state legislature too.

Slowly but very surely our nation has been steered to the Far Left in its public manifestations.    Politics,  economics,  the astounding size of the  flow of money,  all our information and entertainment,  unprosecuted lawless behavior,  criminal enterprises,  all  those who permit our participation in social media,  and everything that allows our private choices and conduct — all has been effectively steered to the Far Left.

(“Implementation follows victory.”)

But, again,  the hearts and minds of most ordinary citizens are not there, (yet).    They are uncomfortable after daily doses of the media.   The implementation of total Leftist control is not quite complete.

They are walking around, almost dazed,  saying:  I don’t know any people like that!  I don’t know any  people who act like that!    I don’t know any people who think like that!   Not in real, everyday life.    Not among my friends and acquaintances.

Except for those few who are imitating what they see on the entertainment-news media, and who  don’t want to be thought of as . . .  what accusations do the Leftists use . . .     “Unkind.”   “Selfish.”   “Prejudiced.”   “Bigoted.”  “Homophobic.”    “Racist.”   “Sexist.”     The false accusations seem endless,  like fighting off buckshot from a shotgun aimed at you.

Reality and commonsense peppered by a thousand holes.

And it wears a person down.

(“Implementation follows victory.”)

 

Butterflies

    Butterflies are free!   Humans should be too!

       I know for a fact that the “excuses”  being presented for why girls should enter the Boy Scouts are just not true.   Just ask this “tomboy” Girl Scout leader!

THE NINETY-0NE PERCENTER vs. NFL

September 23, 2017

(In the Autumn Desert):

In the last post it was President Trump who was the “Ninety-One Percenter,”  having been the recipient of 91% negative news and entertainment coverage in the past year or so.

football in the fall

Autumn in Washington

But I think I see a reverse percentage –  This time it appears that the People are the Ninety-One percenters,  supporting the sentiments expressed by President Trump about certain football players and the patriotically impotent officials at the NFL.

football football

I   love football!  I love the playing of the game,  the rules of the game, the fans, the noise, the field,   and even some of the players.     I love my one team!!  And I like a whole lot of others.

It began here for me,  on the playing field:

football field

Our Junior High marching band was invited to participate in half-time events – before most of us even knew what football and half-time was all about!    But there we were, in bright blue and gold uniforms,  in the chill night air with bright lights pretty much blinding us.

And then you hear the whistles and the drum beats and you see the drum majors taking off,  and you march in formations,   formations after formation,  rhythms,  trumpets blaring, feet pounding,  and because it was the year of The Bridge on the River Kwai ,   all of us,  maybe 800 combined school band members, had to take our frozen lips off of our cold instruments and start whistling  “Colonel Bogie’s March!”   Look up that amazing song!

Maybe the whistling wasn’t that great,  but we were doing it for the football team!    We were doing it for our high school!  We were doing it for our city!    We were all doing it!

And I fell in love with the whole football world right then.

For the past several years,  many posts in The Spruce Tunnel on Fall weekends were enthusiastic reports of the latest (Bears)  game.   Or the Spartans.

football fun

After the Super Bowl I knew a “long desert” of time was coming before I could watch any more football.

Except for last year.   I  became uneasy.    More  and more I saw the political Left intrude into the enjoyment of the sport.    Well-publicized rule violations;  well-publicized criminal investigations;   well-published medical investigations;   and well-publicized  anti-American antics.

football knee

Everything about football had become politicized.    It’s not that these issues didn’t exist;  football fans are generally intelligent enough to know about them – and care.  But it was the hysterical hype about each issue that demanded an end to this and an end to that, a change to this, a change to that . . .   and  (in accord with the rhetoric of the Extreme Left):  “Shame, shame, shame….”      Leftists must have their way!

In the words of these Leftists:  You’d better feel guilty and start agreeing with us.

In the words of our president,  in his best New York-ese:   “Get em otta here!!!!”

I’ll bet ninety-one percent of football fans agree!

 

 

 

THE NINETY-ONE PERCENTER AT THE U.N.

September 21, 2017

(It’s quieter and more peaceful here since The Spruce Tunnel “cut the cable,”  but every now and then something from the leftist media will ooooooze  in.)

 Extreme Leftist Sub-Leaders of the One World Government:

un

The president of the United States recently gave a speech here.    I read it.   It made me feel good and safe and relieved.    At last!   At last, someone is saying it’s okay to be an American and it’s okay, as an American,  to love my country and want to see it thrive.

And it’s okay to feel that way about your country too, if you are a citizen of another country.

If we don’t care about our own native land,  then what good are we for dealing with the larger issues we all  have in common?

62, 000, 000  of us voted for this particular president because he articulated what we had been feeling and what we hope for.   (We cannot know how many supported Mrs.  Bill Clinton,  because so many reports are coming in now of confirmed and evidenced voter fraud that put her in the winning column,  precinct after precinct,  city after city . . . .  Who could ever know how many real votes she got?)

Supporters of these international Extreme Leftists at the United Nations include the entertainment-news media.      Somewhere around 96% of them say they voted for . . .  of course,  the Extreme Leftist Mrs.  Bill Clinton.     Journalists.  Vote.  Left.  

They have been waging an extreme and unrelenting war against their own elected president.

fAke

Surprise!    Independent analysis has shown that  91% of news coverage of our president has been negative.    Surprise!    (not)    That’s 91%.      Some big famous “news”  outlets are in the high 80s percentage of negative (and false) news coverage of the president.

Just facts of  “modern” life.

So, after looking into the speech the American president made at the U.N. on behalf of our country,   I was amazed to hear just about 99%  negative comments on the speech.    There were no words that inspired those comments,  but there was plenty of animosity that inspired those comments.  I shouldn’t have been “amazed” – but I was, at the vitriol and mendacity of the assertions.

The difference between real life and the entertainment-news media has never been greater.

The so called Ninety-One percenter president hit a 100%  home run with many, many Americans.

 

 

 

LOYALTY SENSE

September 14, 2017

“Ethnonational secessionism or global hegemony” — remember that phrase.  I’m going to use it in a minute.

(No photos, I think.  This is an interior thought from me and is a recording, for me,  of a snapshot in the timeline of world history.)

______________________________________

 “Blood is thicker than water.”     When it comes down to the most fundamentally,  extreme basics of life – your family is instinctively your first point of reference.      (There aren’t as many extremely dysfunctional families or self-loathing families as the entertainment-news media would have us believe.)

Normal people are rather loyal to their own families.   Grandparents, parents,  sisters,   brothers, children, and grandchildren.    And then cousins . . .   etc.

I grew up in the ’50s and the pre-radicalized ’60s.   (Never mind how old that makes me:  I’m not really that old.)  It was Chicago, and my home was in the midst of various ethnic groups:   Irish,  German,  Italian, Polish, and Mexican primarily, with a few outliers like me,  a Swede-Finn.     After a few curious questions like “What nationality are you?”  or  “Were your parents born in America?”  we went on with our lives, our school, our play, without any further thought or even awareness of our “differences.”   We went home at night to our various-language speaking homes.

Once Cultural Marxism took over and became the dominant philosophy presented to us in movies,  television, radio, and magazines,   we were taught to think that differences made a  . . .  difference.    Somehow.

A big surprise in the ’70s came when I read a sociological study that concluded that “People are happier when they are living in neighborhoods made up of primarily their own kind.”    One race likes to live among people of its own same race.   One ethnic group is happier living with people of its own familiar ethnic group.   Et cetera.

That seemed like common sense,  evidenced by my own observations from a pre-radicalized American culture.

Blood is thicker than water.   You are happiest among your own familiar  “kind” of people.

How hard it is to write those words today – and not feel defensive.

But there is nothing wrong with feeling patriotic and loyal to your culture even if it’s made up of many ethnic groups.    “America”  defines a culture with citizens of one common set of values.     It is worth our heartfelt  loyalty.

As a history major in the universities I attended,  I saw how evil ethnic cleansing is,  and genocide,   and granting privilege to one ethnic group or another.  One of the biggest causes of unrest in the world —   small wars,  skirmishes, guerilla warfares, armed revolutions,  civil wars —  is the deliberate creation of artificial  national boundaries,  breaking up families and tribes and ethnic groups into arbitrary political alignments.

Tribes just want to get back together again.   Clans and families want to live together.

As I’ve returned from my  rather long vacation and returned to reading world events,  I see so many areas of the world on the verge of civil war for just this very reason.   The Kurds want their own country,  their own national boundaries.  They do NOT want live across four or five other “nations”  created in the Middle East.

The Catalans want their own region back, under their own local control.    (Even though it’s been a few hundred years since they were annexed into Spain.)   Ditto the Basques.

Many  ( a majority?) of  Ukrainians speak and feel and identify as Russian.   Why do the NATO nations want the Ukraine?      Why should they?

Africa is one big political and cultural mess of forcibly moved ethnic groups,  with Leftist governments desperately trying to keep control through any tyrannical and murderous means they can use, starvation being a very effective tool.

China is trying to take back (or take over)  an area of northern India, closest to them.   They’re close to succeeding.   400,000 refugees in “relief” camps;  50 dead this summer.

China and the Uighurs.

Burma.   The Philippines.   Southern Russia.  Chechens.  India  (Darjeeling tea, anyone?)

If you are well-informed,  you get the picture and you’ll be able to see an overview, draw some useful conclusions.

This is the picture of Ethno-Seccessionism —  ethnic groups wanting to secede from the national state that is now governing them.

What is holding them back?    What force is opposing them?   Why cannot people live in peace among their own families, clans, tribes, and ethnic groups?

It breaks my heart that people can’t.

What’s stopping them?     It is the diabolically strong force of Global Hegemony.    The opposing Force wants control of —  everything!  And everyone.    to do that It must break down boundaries, barriers,  loyalties,  identities, blur differences, and absorb all.     It must have Global Control,  Global Hegemony over everything and everyone.

And this motivation is one of the driving forces behind the deliberate promotion of ethnic groups being “migrated” into foreign countries, where they don’t match the culture,  where they are not willing to be assimilated,  where they do not respect the citizens already there.

Civil wars, unrest, agitations result, today, from this clash of Ethnocentric Secessionism and Global Hegemony.

Who do you want to be?      Who do you identify with?    Who are you and your family safer with?

Local control or an inhuman, “efficient” Big Brother machine?     Power makes on hungry for more Power.

___________________________________

To see how far along the second road we are,  check with your local township government,  your local school board,  or city,   or county.    See how much in compliance they are with Agenda 21 –  or 2030 – or any of the new names the Globalist have come up with.  

Check also the book of Revelation in the Bible –  chapter 13.  ( “Beast” is just a way of expressing the Force behind this growing Global Hegemony.)     If it’s seen in the bible, does that mean it’s inevitable?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“LEFT COAST” LIFE

September 3, 2017

 

The New Donner Memorial Experience:   Gone   Gone   Gone

Okay,  I hope you enjoyed “Lake Life”  and  “Mountain Life,”  because I have to get a little negative here.   Yes,  there was fun,  lots of activities,  lots of good food,  and lots and lots of really nice people —  but at the same time there were a lot of censorship and restrictions on the way you can think.

In fact – maybe the motto was:  Stay active;  don’t think.

Or:  Stay active;  we’ll tell you what to think.

As I traveled west,  I was pretty miffed about all the signs in the zoos that I visited that explained not what animal I was seeing or where they came from,  but   signs that  just gave the name, followed by    “And humans  are destroying this animal’s habitat.”

The World War One Museum conclusion?   “Humans who love their country –  Nationalism –  cause wars.”

The dinosaur museum?    “Humans are causing another extinction event  today. . .”

One day during my vacation,  when everyone was busy,  I decided to re-visit the Donner Party Memorial.  I remember it as a nice one, very informative, with lots of educational, interesting gifts in the gift shop.

But this time there was a big difference.  I should have known something had changed by the police presence there.

2 police presence 370

 

So maybe they were just having a meeting.

Here is the monument built to the Donner party,  90 some in all,  and 46 died.

2 Monument 370Their story is, of course,  a bit sensational:   betrayal and incompetence along the way,  miscalculation of the season and ignorance of survival techniques in  the weather,  and the overblown “horrors”  of cannibalism by a couple of the people,  in an attempt to stay alive.

It happened here:

2 map 350

That’s Cooper’s   “Beautiful Lake,”  as he calls it, where we did so much of our activities.

But in the museum (information center) –  Gone were the beautiful displays of animals native to the area.   Gone  were the life-sized figures of the people and their daily equipment, pots and pans,  children’s toys,  their covered wagons,  yokes, and wheels and axles.    Gone were the historical dioramas of building the railroad into the High Sierras shortly after the Donner Party tragedy,  a railroad which would have made their tragedy unnecessary.     Gone were many of the logs and diaries and books written by the survivors.    Gone was the sense of the grit and courage and perseverance of the Donner Party,  a tribute to the hope and dignity of human beings.

So much I had wanted to see again was just gone.   In fact,  if I didn’t know the story well myself,  I would have been a bit puzzled about what exactly had happened here.

2 donner party area 370

Because I had known what had happened here,  it was easy to recreate in my imagination what took place in these woods.   This is a poignant and eerie scene –  if you know the details.

A few areas were marked.  The actual campsite of one of the families:

2 camp site 370

With just a small plaque to name this site.

They had built a brand new large “information center”  —  so what took up all that space?

Well,  two main large areas told us:   “We must not forget that Western Man destroyed the culture of the   Washoe people  who lived here.”

2 Washoe 370

And there were some large displays of generic “Native American”  life.    This could be any tribe of Indians.    But they can’t live like this anymore.    This culture is  “gone.”

The second main large area was taken up by the Chinese coolies  (is it still okay to call them that?)   who were brought over from China  (shanghaied –  is it still okay to say that?  Because  Chinese merchants captured and sold their fellow Chinese to any country who could use them as workers.)   to do the hard labor of building the railroad across America.

The main statement was:   Western Man must not leave them out of the pages of history.”

Well, guess what!   Western Man didn’t!   I remember learning about the Chinese laborers in at least three different years in school,  with an increasing, maturing  presentation of their plight and of the context.

If young people today,  40 and unders,  don’t know about the Chinese laborers,  don’t blame Western Man –  blame the government schools and their weak, dumbed down curricula.     No one has “forgotten”  them except for the education system.

After all this negativity,  I felt like  “ducking”   every time I read some display sign.

This censorship of the “whole”  story of . . .  anything . . .  was all over.   There was an underlying feeling of guilt and self-doubt and uncertainty everywhere I went.

How about trying to buy some food?

2 Ca style food warning 380

 

And when presented by two or three or four trash cans side by side,  I never did learn which was “garbage” or “recyclable”  or  “compost”  or  “you’d better not put that in here”!

I hope this Left Coast mentality is stopped before it permeates our entire society.   This is not what our Founding Fathers,  our forefathers, and our grandfathers  fought for!   We must not lose our American History in a hysteria of anti-West,  anti-White,   anti-human propaganda.

WORLD WAR ONE REVISITED

August 26, 2017

You should . . .  we all should:  revisit World War One.   Or maybe learn about it for the first time.     And 1917.  So much happened in that year that is relevant to us today — and if we don’t learn its lessons,   its warnings for us will come true.

KANSAS  CITY,  MISSOURI:

I had two things on my list to do in Kansas City:   (1)  visit the zoo;  (2)  visit the National World War One Memorial and Museum.

It’s NOT easy to drive in Kansas City,  and they had just received about 9 inches of rain, so many roads were still closed for flooding.  I was heading for the zoo, but got lost and found myself staring at a sign that pointed to the Museum . . .

It looks like this:

WWI Tower 400

It’s large.   You go forward and downward about fifteen feet, and then in through those dark doors in the middle.

Fortunately (if you want to have some fun)  you can go way up to the top of the tower too,  up in a rattle-y metal elevator:

WWI looking down elevator

That’s standing at the edge of the elevator looking down a couple hundred feet!   It lifts you up and then you walk up a further 45 winding steps,  just like in a lighthouse.

Quite a view!

WWI KC overlook

And my pretty blue car, way down there:

WWI Blue car

 

But inside the museum,  it was serious.    Serious history for a serious century.   You entered the exhibit rooms by walking on a glass floor.   Underneath the floor, about twenty feet down,  was a garden of poppies.

WWI glass floor anad foot

The reflection of the bright light makes it hard to tell that it’s a transparent floor,  but there’s my shoe to show you I’m standing on glass!

Deep down below, if you were there,  you’d see the poppies:

WWI glass poppies

I  cried.

Poppies.  *    We must never forget.

World War One was a slap in the face to “modern” man,  and a punch in the stomach.   With all the confident promises of modern technology to solve every problem, we discovered that technology could be used to wage the horrific, murderous, brutal war we could not even have imagined.   Airplanes were used to deliver bombs and chemical gases.    Artillery increased in unimaginable sizes.   Submarines delivered death to civilians, not just enemy soldiers.

And a new kind of warfare took the lives of almost half the men in the war:

WWI Trench 400

This was a life-size model of a trench from which much of the war was waged, on both sides.   10 to 15 feet or more deep.   Dirty, muddy,  disease and vermin filled.   A map of the trenches ran from the English Channel all the way down to Switzerland,  and it was not just one long narrow string of trenches.    There were many intersecting trenches,  some for fighting,  some for communications, some for the officers to plan,  some for tending the wounded,  some for supplies . . .   The web of trenches were like small cities.

And many, many young men died in these trenches.  Or trying to get out of the trenches.   Or ordered to get out, up, and over, to bring the fight to the enemy.

WWI Men sign up 400

America entered the war after a few years.    There were campaigns to raise money for our troops.  There was rationing at home.   “Tobacco parties”   or “Tobacco Balls”  to raise a supply of cigarettes to send to the troops.    And there was pressure on young Americans to enlist.

My grandfather enlisted in the Navy.      U.S.S.   Utah.

In 1917 the war effort faltered as Russia left the war to fight an internal war of its own.

WWI stolen guns

Actual German guns – taken by the Russians,  to use in the Russian Revolution.

Like World War One and “poppies”  the Russian Revolution is another event of the 20th century that should be revisited, since the same revolutionary group is at work in the United States today, promoting anarchy,  social upheaval,  class warfare,  racism,  discontent, and violence.

We need to remember what that did to the Russian people.   I know for a fact that our school and university history books do not tell us what we need to know.

World War One ended, then in 1918,   but its lessons for us do not come to an end.   Unless we want an inevitable Three.

NIGHTFALL

August 13, 2017

“And the evening and the morning were   (the next)  day . . .”    (Genesis)

Pond at Night

Looking out my back window tonight.      That’s the moon reflecting in my pond and three solar lights in my butterfly garden.

Darkness has descended.  Darkness makes a fitting division from one day to another.  Shut out all the issues of one day;  another (new) day will some.    And I am happy to leave behind today’s events in Virginia and the ensuing attempted attitude-adjustments by the Leftist-controlled media.     I’d like to form my own opinions,  thank you very much.

Maybe I’ll do pictures in this post to make up for no-pictures in the last.

The demonstrations in Charlottesville today and the Global-Socialist counter-demonstration that fought against them presented some big problems,  but the solutions do not lie in proclaiming our opinions one way or the other,  making quick pronouncements about “what is wrong,”   descending into name-calling in order to make a point.

I guess I stand with the president today when he said we need to analyze this,  investigate it, figure out what happened and why.   And all that before we can tell each other how to fix the social and civil problems we have.

Here’s my contribution:

As I taught public school for a few years,  I witnessed the deliberate destruction of American values by the new curriculum and the introduction of Socialism  into the minds of the children.     The children weren’t “victims”;  they were to be the new tools of Social Change.

They didn’t know that American values are opposed to Socialism’s values:

free_not_equal_equal_not_free

 

And they were not taught what could happen under some socialist governments:

Socialism Try Again

 

Yeah,  why not try it here?   How about some practice and a standing ovation?  —

Standing Ovation

Yeah, that’s the president of the un^it^ed  st^ates . . .  disguised as “Julius Caesar”   in a recent play,  much promoted by our hate-filled media.

Celebrities teach our children to have bad attitudes ready to display:

children's celebrities

“Children,”  or superannuated children.

We permit mindless slogans:

We Hate America

 

Slogans against America;  slogans against the president — any president:

dump trump people

 

The   young man who drove from Ohio to crash his car into the demonstrators today is said to have anti-Trump sentiments on his Facebook page — although that information has not reappeared anywhere.

car crash

 

Leftist counter-demonstrators today   “fought flags with fire”:

lighted spray

Disrespect embedded in —  what?  Am I supposed to say “only a small group of people”?    Okay –  then why no public disapproval  from public voices?    We ought to be publicly and loudly “disrespecting”  these people.

Because small groups of people can spread hatred and violence like a cancer spreads into the body,  into the body-politic.

We’d better watch what we teach our children —

Librarian for childrens hour

—  and we’d really better try to educate ourselves.

That’s a great project, because the rehabilitation of our society is done one person at a time.       Read!      And push back at the attitudes that lead to action that threaten our republic.    That’s like sitting outdoors in a comfortable chair in the sunlight –  and swatting away the wasps that might come your way.

Here are a couple suggestions:

If You Can Keep It  by   Eric Metaxas

Inventing Freedom   by  Daniel  Hannon

George Washington  by  Ron  Chernow

and . . .

happy face        . . . . .    most Westerns!

Most Americans who are 50 years old and under have grown up in an atmosphere saturated with socialist principles alongside  American values.    They are incompatible.  One side will win out over the other.        One side is deliberately trying to win out over the other.

But this could be correctable.

I’m feeling  better already!    I love the night!       A new day comes next!

Our young lady friend is off her ventilator, finally, and out of the ICU.   She is better, but still has a long way to go.     I’m spending less time at the hospital,  more time on my new (and rather demanding) classes for the summer.    I need to do so well with that topic . . . .

Yet, I haven’t really caught up with Time.  That takes some effort.    How I would like to slide into that state of Perpetual Retirement,  where the only activities are occasional voluntary activities.

But I have promises to keep,    And miles to go before I sleep.”  *

Speaking of which,  I could use a little snow.    I’ve resurfaced into a heat wave, with a long string of near 90-degree temperatures and almost daily thunderstorms, which menace my electronics.

sad tv.jpg 70x90   I’ve also checked into what the entertainment-news media is going on about.    Same thing.   Same words. Same people.  Same accusations.    Same minor terrorist strikes here and there.  Same perplexities about what to do . . . .  Missing a week and a half has not resulted in any developments.    The world does not need my attention!

This discovery needs my attention:

Slant Tree.jpg 380

 

That’s my front yard.

S My house.jpg 380

Apparently we had a wind storm this weekend.

Son will know what to do.

It’s apparently going to take some time to return to normal.   Me, that is.  I’m coming out of these past almost two weeks a little shaken.    It was a life-and-death matter, after all, to watch a young lady have to fight for her life – with no definite diagnosis that started it all.   And then to worry anew about the state of her soul and of  my childrens’  souls . . . .  And my own efforts seem weak next to the consequences of getting it wrong.

And, yes, I still studied in my spare moments.  I studied  Gramschi, again;     Herbert Marcuse,  Wilhelm Reich – you probably know where I’m going with this:   the stunning victory of cultural marxism,over our society.     In the Catholic Church this is called:  The Errors of Russia.   Although it didn’t begin with the Russian Revolution,  it nevertheless points to Error,  the kind that will separate you from God – forever.

Frankfort School

“Critical Theory”:   Criticize everything;  demonize the cultural norms;  break down society so that it can be replaced with the Slavery of Marxist-Liberalism – because the State is  more important than the individual.  The atheistic State is more important than your immortal soul.

I’m a bit shaken with that realization.     The realization of the complete and utter victory of cultural marxism over the society my children and grandchildren have to live in.   What chance to they have?

What chance do they have to even learn about it, after years of schooling in an apparent  marxist – liberal environment of anti-intellectualism,  anti-analytical thinking,   anti-objective reality,  anti-logic, anti-truth — and the Any Glass theory:  Any glass will do it for you when you’re thirsty.  (No right and wrong, no moral norms, no “judgmental” thinking.)

Apparently, I have a lot of catching up to do.     (Why was I made with this impulse to teach?   I don’t know.    It’s my duty;  it’s what I am.)    I have a lot of catching up in my studies to do.     It’s the only way I can be of use to my classes,  to my family and  friends     . . .   to God.

Crash course for me this summer.    Cramming again.    Not for final exams,  but so I can be a better parent,  a better teacher,   a better blog writer.

Stopping by The Woods One Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   
My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   
He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.

COURTNEY LOVE AND SATURDAY’S HOSPITAL VIGIL

June 10, 2017

It’s Saturday night, another anniversary of that one appalling Saturday a couple thousand years ago,  when Jesus, after having consented to His death, apparently abandoned  this planet Earth.   And why did He consent to die? )

I can tell you.
tomb

_____________________________________________________________

I’ve been confined to a relatively small space these last three days, a hospital room where Son and I spend our days keeping vigil. (See two posts ago.)   My life has been encompassed by a 20 X 10 foot room, filled with machines keeping our dear loved friend alive – and stable, so far.

Today every rare fluttering of her eyelids, every attempt to maybe cough,  every entry and exit point of the tubes and wires coming out of her body seemed almost painful to see.    Every so often as the nurses and patient care technicians would come in, my mind would shout out “Don’t hurt her, don’t hurt her.”      “Don’t bother her.”  Don’t . . . Even though they were there to help.

Love red    The word is “cherish.” Or “care about.”   “Be solicitous for.”    We all care about someone, maybe more – when life is normal – than we realize.

Conversely, each person is cared about and loved by someone more than that person might realize. Humans are precious.

It is horribly painful to think about all the beloved people who are in pain and terror and in danger today.     It’s horrible to think about . . . pain.     But, so, when I came home tonight, I read the news – anyway.

On this Saturday,   reminding me of the world the Savior had seemed to  abandon, I read about the demonstrations this weekend  against the establishment of Sharia around the world  and I read with great dismay about the rude and  violent opposition to those who were demonstrating today

Demonstrations not against Muslims   —   against Sharia.

They were demonstrating against the Sharia system that is anti-freedom, anti-free speech, anti-religion, anti-woman, and which allows and promotes child marriage,  sex slavery and rape.

But there were people who were trying to shut down their demonstration.   Here is one anti-demonstrator who missed the point:

lover to cr

People across the country  who are apparently  for  Sharia identify themselves as feminists, ACLU-types, and the ever present liberal-progressive-leftist-democrats.

Hate to cr

Perhaps such people didn’t read enough news today.

Perhaps they didn’t read about  all the young ladies who are subjected to the Ko* ran’s permission to rape girls and young children (provided they are “able,”  as they’re told) and women when they are spoils of war;    and the women  must comply or they are to be killed.    Right?

Here are 19 sex slaves this week who tried to refuse their rapists:

Islam-women-400x267

They were placed in a locked cage.    Then burned.     To death.

Surely it must have seemed as though God has abandoned them.

I didn’t want my young lady friend to suffer anything in her hospital room today.    My empathy was aroused.   I was primed to  hurt for these young ladies in a cage too – how they must have hurt . . . .   How their families must have suffered for them.

Don’t our leftists know this? Don’t they know what Sharia is all about?

poster islam dominate

 

The Courage of Courtney Love

Have these people  only selectively read that Ko* ran?    These leftists listen to a moslem woman named Linda Sarsour whose words mark her out as an anti-semite and a promoter of Sharia in the United States.    Courtney Love called her out as “a vile disgrace to women and all mankind.”

This is not the first time Courtney Love has had something important to tell her generation. Just as Kurt Cobain had much to tell us in his short life.   And that is pain is real and uncomforted pain leads to death just as surely as this “vile hatred” that comes from Sharia supporters also leads to death.

So.     Let me tell you why Jesus consented to His death; and why He had to die:    It was the ONLY thing that could address and defeat such pain and hatred (and indifference) and violence against someone who is loved and cherished by someone . . . .

From  the first Passover sacrifice to Easter to now, the remedy has been the same.

Jesus loving the world

His love overcomes.

Going to His love overcomes.

Reading the news will give you reason enough.

 

D-DAY – COOPER AND OUR YOUNG PEOPLE

June 6, 2017

D-Day:  The Sixth of June.   1944.     Lest we forget.

____________________________________________________

Some of you know Cooper is my grandson.   He’s a typical six-year-old;  he plays and swims and skis and kayaks and white-water rafts (down the beautiful and rather tame Truckee River)  and he golfs and he takes dance lessons and he plays violin, he’s just discovered reading —  and he appreciates some good red balloons!

Cooper aNd bigred balls cr

That’s his home, on Donner Lake,  California.

He can do all those activities  BECAUSE   American   young people did this:

DDay arricing

 

16, 17, 18 . . . 20 year olds  . . .   24,  30, 32,   38 year olds . . .  and every young man in between arrived on those Normandy beaches for an impossibly difficult mission.

 

Not everyone made it to the beach:

dday dragging

Up and over, right into German artillery – firing at them.

DDay hump

So many died.   I don’t think they’d want us to forget their story.

Because our young people in uniform do things like that,  Cooper can remain safe and play and learn . . . .

 

 

We MUST make sure our young people are taught this, once again.  

 

“DEATH BY A THOUSAND CUTS”

June 5, 2017

(Note:  The “death by a thousand cuts”  usually means a person suffers insult after insult,  slight after slight,   and people wonder “When is that person going to say “Enough!”  ?)

Here’s a little humor (thanks to my Far Far North cousin):

Coffee gone

Funny, huh?

Well, maybe not if you’re a coffee pot and your life blood had just been drained out of you.     Mugged!!   Little by little!     Anyone can usually survive a mugging or two, as long as it doesn’t continue.

I think I was a girl of thirteen years old  (too young;  too big an imagination!) when I first discovered that the phrase:  “Death by a thousand cuts”  really referred to a horrendous, horrifying method of torture used by the Chinese many hundreds of years ago.     Western explorers who escaped wrote of this in their diaries.

cutting knife

Mug by mug   —    I mean cut by cut . . .  anyone can survive a cut or two, or even one or two hundred;   but  I think it was a several day process before death released the victim.     The victim is tied down tight,  because any sane man would run;  fight back;  maybe come after these torturers with a small army.

But not sing songs to them of peace and love.    Not apologize for our borders –

Katy Person       –  as this Katy-Person did recently.    Apparently her recent words of wisdom after the killings in London were that we should look at our neighbors, hold their hands, and tell them we love them.

Peace.  Love.   And more teddy bears and flowers.  To quote my Dad’s favorite phrase:  “Oh,  for goodness’ sakes!”

Oh for goodness sakes

Our hands are somehow being tied and we are suffering thousands of little cuts – and you know  it’s daily, if you read newspapers from around the world.   Big cuts and little cuts,   it’s still death to the victim.

Someone cried out “Fight terrorism, not Tr um p!”    Maybe the entertainment-news media in the Western World and the “elected” politicians  should temporarily put aside their mission to   Ta ke Do wn Tr um p    and instead focus on the  mission of our enemy,  which is to “take down”  us.    (As they’ve stated so often — especially now during Ramadan when murder and mayhem is encouraged — by imams from many locations.  I know.   I’ve got one of those about 90 miles from here.  I’m not going to put his crazed, hate-filled face in this blog,   but he’s one of many calling for our deaths.)

These two entities,   politicians and media, protect, obscure, and cover up the intents of the radical-islamists.

Apparently, the CNN information outlet has attempted to portray the murderous Muslims in London as an aberration and “most Muslims”  would be outraged at the killings and injuries that “these few” accomplished.  CNN printed out special signs of peace-and-love  for “peaceful Muslims”  to hold up in front of their cameras.

It took them a while to recruit a few Muslim by-standers — what are you going to do?   There weren’t many who would publicly denounce what had just happened. CNN found about eight. . . .

Signs 1

Well,  that didn’t look like a very big “protest.”

So CNN  moved this little group to another location.   (Notice pink pants . . .)

Signs 2

They look rather . . .   stone-faced and uncommitted.     No “outraged”  expressions on their faces.

But CNN had to make it look like there were anti-violence protests all over the city!   The same group of people in yet another location:

Signs 3

Sorry for blurry.   The signs say:  “Turn to Love.”     “Love will win.”   “ISIS will lose.”    Uh-huh;  mmm-hmmmm.       Rah Rah – not.

Nations all over the world are experiencing daily attacks,   big ones, little ones,  big cuts, little cuts.    Death by a thousand cuts –  when will we say  “Enough!”   ??

I guess it’s not when we see our nation threatened,  our culture threatened,  our freedoms threatened.   Maybe when we feel personally threatened.

Because so far altruism and empathy seems to be dormant.

__________________________________________

The victim is tied down tight,  because any sane man would run;  fight back;  maybe come after these torturers with a small army.   

“The victim is tied down,”    immobilized,  mind and body;   misinformed

“any sane man would run,”         if he’s not suicidal

“fight back,”     fight back when threatened with death of ourselves, our cultures,  if we love ourselves and our cultures

“with a small army”   —   it’s war.    They have declared war on us ( in those words)   but we do not declare war on them.

 

 

MEMORIAL DAY ENTERTAINMENT

May 29, 2017

Suggested.   Suggested entertainment for Memorial Day.      Because the republic of the United States of America cannot exist without truth and the courage to say the truth.

And so I heartily, absolutely recommend for this Memorial Day and the days that follow the series called  The Man in the High Castle.   It’s a series,  on television or something,  that you can get from Amazon Prime or maybe your library DVD collection –  or with a DVD purchase.

man flag

You’ll live in a world in which it’s best not to ask.  Don’t call attention to yourself.   Everything will be all right if you don’t make waves.  Don’t question what you hear on television or in movies or in the newspaper.     Your in-born Bias to Normalcy will help you stay content.

The premise of this series is that the Allies, including the United States lost  World War  Two,  and the governing of  our country is divided between the Nazi victors and the Japanese victors.

man new world

Our country has been broken up now for several decades:  a Nazi controlled East,  a Japanese controlled West, and a kind of no-man’s land in between, somewhere between Colorado and Montana.

Except . . .

The Secret behind this arrangement is that America did NOT lose the world,  but instead, for the sake of our Rulers,  through an efficient and skillful use of deception,  it only appears that way –  in the entertainment-news media.   People are kept in poverty and in ignorance to maintain the deception.

There are a few secret news reels that still exist  that show the Germans and the Japanese surrendering to the Allies — hard to believe! —   but Americans must never know about them.    But some – renegades – are beginning to believe these news reels tell the truth.    And their suppression by the authorities is ruthless.

man logo

We remember today  those who fought and died for our country.   They believed in Truth, Justice, and the American Way.    By and large.   Their children pledge allegiance to  “One Nation Under God.”     We treasure our Freedom.

But all this is so fragile.   It is almost an aberration in world history.   In times of War we fight hard to uphold our values, but times of Peace and Prosperity attack us.

Peace attacks our values.

Prosperity attacks us.

We let our guard down.  We fight no more  We are vigilant no more.   We are on guard no more.

And those who would like to have our country know how to efficiently use deception,  the collusion of the media,  and skillful  psychological methods to confuse us.   Those who would like to Rule over us give us  a new narrative to think with.    History is rewritten.   The game is slowly changed.

Suppression of the old ways is accomplished with ridicule,  isolation,  demonization, and threats,   subtle and sometimes overt.    Economic pressure;  you can lose your job.    And then the lawsuits start.   Fines,  Imprisonments.

The antidote is knowledge.  Certainly not easy to come by!    Awareness doesn’t just drop out of your remote and onto your lap.

Our Founding Fathers said that the continuance of our republic depends upon two things:  an informed electorate and a religious, moral citizenry.

The republic didn’t continue in the Man in the High Castle – and it cost many lives to attempt to get it back.

 

 

JOY AND TRAGEDY OF A 24-YEAR OLD

May 17, 2017

 

(Turning serious, now, because it’s Wednesday. ) 

Wednesday 1.jpg Wednesday.  Our culture calls it “hump day,”  a term I don’t like,  but on some Wednesdays I write about the big “hump”  the Western World has to face, and to get up and over it,  or more “Joys”  will turn to “Tragedies.”

We have to face some differences.

______________________________________

There is nothing more joyful than watching  a 24- year old young man — (in general, of course) – – reaching the prime of his life,  the prime of his strength,  the prime of his self-confidence,  optimism, courage, self-assurance.  He’s so “full of himself” !!     Bursting with life.  And fun.       (Another reason why mothers have gray hairs.)

conga fun bl wh

It was with my young, approximately 24-year old Hubbie that I danced on a table in a German bar,  and we all danced the Conga, right out the door, into the parking lot,  and back in through the kitchen, snatching up kitchen staff as we passed through.

Oh, wait.  We didn’t do it in black and white:

conga 1

More like this.   In fact,   I was wearing a tiny dress like that which I had made – out of one yard of brightly colored material!     (Very long blonde hair covered the rest of me.)   Hubbie had fun too.   He eventually “matured” and life went on.

Ein prosit!!

ein prosit

 

A 24-year old man should feel young and joyful and full of life.  He has much to learn, and he needs all that courage and strength for the life that is coming to him.   He must mature and begin to help solve the serious problems  of the adult world.   He must soon know that some 24-year olds don’t live in a free and joyful culture.

______________________________________

It’s  different in a Different World.    Some 24-year olds are busy trying to escape their World:

sign says for sale

Here are young men;  told to wait out there in the blazing sun.    The white sign above them, the one with the Arabic letters,  says:  “For sale.”     Those young men are for sale.    In the Islamic world,  slavery exists.

One 24-year old escaped his captors, after physical hardship and torture, and he, Muhammed Yusuf,  was able to report this to people from the Western World.

As a matter of fact, although slavery has existed everywhere from the beginning of written history,  it was only in the Western World,  the Western hemisphere and Western Europe,  that people worked hard to abolish slavery.   The popes first called for its abolition from the 16th century  onward,  until finally it became a serious movement and men of European heritage — that would be Caucasian (white)  Christian people — finally enacted laws abolishing slavery in their lands.

The (Christian) Western World is a world apart from the Islamic world.

They have different values from each other.

Every day now I read of one or more attacks by “extremists”  against people of the Western cultures.   Here’s one that appeared in the news just today:

catedral-mexico_Muslim-attacker

This young man in his mid-20s is being detained on a cathedral floor, just after he has stabbed a priest in the neck, as the priest was saying Mass.   Mexico  City.    The young man is a Muslim.

A Different World.    They do not respect what we respect.

A few days ago we heard that Bin Laden’s son has declared Revenge on the Western World,  us,  and has called for our murder.

Meat Cleaver

Anytime.  Anyplace.

They do things differently.   It’s a Different World.

I wonder sometimes why the full implications of these differences do not motivate us more. 

But our government (through the entertainment-news media)  has given us a vocabulary that emphasizes a false sense of  Sameness,  obscuring deadly differences.

Our schools – and there are plenty of examples –  are teaching our children to accept the ‘differences”  that come from a Different World.

San Diego Pub Schls

These are California schoolchildren, learning that all worlds are “equal”  and “diversity”  means Sameness.

Leaders in government don’t seem to realize there are two Different Worlds.

Trudeau among worshipers

Here is the young leader of our neighbor to the north seriously practicing Sameness with the Muslims.

And tragically,  those leaders who should be teaching us the differences,  have just voted to welcome those adherents of Islam who are colonizing the Western World:

Toe the Mark Islam

As old as some of these men are,  they do not appear to have been given a classical Western education, or at least they have  rejected Classical education and are therefore unable to make intellectual distinctions between one set of values and another.

Appalling and deadly ignorance.    They cannot tell victims  of persecution from the Colonizers.      They call them all “refugees”  but accept only the Islamic ones.

Young men of military age from a Different World.

Poor Refugee

Call them refugees, but I don’t think they plan to assimilate into any Western nation that opens its doors to them.

 

 

 

 

POWERFUL FORCES

March 29, 2017

WEDNESDAY:   Human laws don’t give us our freedom and dignity;  but human laws can suppress them.

It’s like we’re living in a perpetual Wednesday,   that mid work-week day that if we could just get through it,  the battle is half won – and we are encouraged to continue to work till the end of the week.

Safeguarding individual liberty and dignity:

const

That’s what America is supposed to be all about –  the Constitution was written in such a way so as to prevent any governing force (even our own)  from  infringing on or limiting those freedoms.    Freedoms, for instance:    We should be able to speak freely, to express our religious beliefs freely,  to assemble together freely and without suspicion (and without harassment from the IRS),  and to read and publish our thoughts freely.

Two major “humps” that we have to conquer in our perpetual Wednesday have combined together to produce a powerful totalitarian force against the God-given freedom and dignity of each human being,  you and me.

Yesterday’s post about the horrors at an airport was an example of the first totalitarian force.    Today I offer two photos and one quotation  that point to the increasing spread of  the totalitarian mindset of the second force.

Can you guess who this is?

Leila Hasik com director

Her name is Leila Hasic.    She is the new “communications”  director between Norway’s people and Islam.    That will be her appearance as she works to keep Islamic intentions “transparent.”

Guess who this is:

islamic-chaplain_to 14,000

He is Army Lt. Col. Khallid Shabazz.   As chaplain  of the Army’s 7th Infantry Division he will hold a position of leadership for American young men.   When he first  received the call to this position,  this is what he said:    “I was jumping all around like a little kid.  I was running around the office saying, al hamdulillah, al hamdulillah, praise be to (god)!”

(Oh,  yes, he was born an American himself;  but he did not know his own protestant religion,  and when he was unable to defend it to a moslem friend,  he decided he’d better convert . . . .)

Although we read many stories of violence,  killings,  rapes, knifings,  shootings,  beheadings, going on all over Europe,  it is these positions of leadership and influence that we also must observe.     Despite parental objections,  schools all over America and Europe are still teaching the children how to say moslem prayers and how to practice thinking, acting, and dressing like a moslem.    Despite parental objections . . . .

The moslems have stated – in so many words – that they are going to build a worldwide caliphate which includes, well, the world – America and Europe too.    They must first tear down and destroy evidence of European culture, and then they must teach the Europeans how to submit to Islam.

So here is a quotation that was not widely published in newspapers – at least if you read only the headlines or the first paragraph, you may have missed this:

 Recently, in Paris, an Egyptian terrorist tried to strike the great museum, the Louvre. He planned to deface the museum’s artwork, he said, because “it is a powerful symbol of French culture”.

And those symbols of French culture must be destroyed!

In America?   Wikileaks.     John Podesta’s  personal emails.    His job was to fill top government posts in the new administration:  2009-2017.      The list of candidates were almost exclusively “moslems.”     The Muslim Brotherhood now has a strong presence in top US government positions.      

The two powerful anti-freedom forces that have combined, temporarily,  have the same goal, although with different purposes.    So these are (1) Global totalitarianism which will allow no exceptions,  and (2)  the Worldwide Caliphate,  which will allow no exceptions to their rule.

They each must control every aspect of our personal lives.   And we must submit to survive.

And that’s my Wednesday observation.

DEVOUT IS JUST AN ADJECTIVE

March 22, 2017

Wednesday.   Time to look again at the “hump”  we have to get over.

As of Wednesday night,  we still don’t know the identity of the man who killed the four people in London today, seriously injuring more than a dozen more. But we often read that a terrorist  attacker had become a “devout Moslem.”

Devout means . . .  well,  here’s the dictionary definition:

devout  (adjective) :  loyal to something : devoted to a particular belief, organization, person,religion, etc;       : serious and sincere

We tend to want to know Who, What, Where, and When in a news article.   We’re a little blurry about the Why.

What happened.  Where did it happen.   Who did it.   When did it happen.    That’s all we have time for.

“Why”  kind of taxes our time and our mental energy.   Motivation and all that.

“loyal to something”  —   To what?     Who cares;  I can kind of figure it out.

pray 1

All those people;  “serious and sincere,” the definition says:

pray 2

“devoted to a particular belief” 

pray 3

“devoted to a particular religion” 

pray 4

 

” . .  .  a particular   organization,  person,  religion . . .

Yes,  they sure are.

“Devoted”  is only an adjective.  We need to know the noun it refers to.   We in the Western World better find out the details about their particular  organization, person,  religion, or belief,  or we’re going to get blindsided by their devotion.

machete

I think it takes interest, though;  and energy;   and effort to learn;  and time to study and think about it.

studying

And it requires us to be  equally devoted to a different organization,  Person,  religion,  and belief.   I’m afraid this “hump”  that lies before us will be surmounted only  by the side who is the most certain, the most faithful, the most devoted to their cause.

And the most aware of what’s going on.

 

 

 

 

WEDNESDAY: WHAT THE HUMP IS

March 15, 2017

I hate that term  “hump day” to refer to that middle day of the workweek.;  it seems slightly  “not nice.”    Nevertheless,   I understand,    we work hard all week, look forward to the weekend and after that middle day of the week, Wednesday, we seem to have the “worst” of the week’s work hours behind us.

We’re “over that hump”  because we’ve been doing our duty.

By analogy,  we as  a nation have a big “hump” to get over, but I don’t know the duration of our work, so I don’t know  how long  we’ll even be tackling that “hump”  or looking forward to putting it behind us.

This is the hump,  a growing hump, actually   —

9 11 end

This is its message to us,  whether we’re listening or not.    Its principles are 180 degrees away from our own culture and values.    That means someone grasps your head and jerks it halfway around on your neck so you’re seeing something opposite of what you want to see.   Shariah is 180 degrees away from “democracy.”

I will try to dedicate Wednesdays’ writings to this topic.

With examples and illustrations.    

Let’s start with the children.   I’ve already showed you photos of little toddlers learning how to cut the heads of their teddy bears off – with  a knife.     I’ve showed you little children training with guns that seem  too big for them.    How about these BOOM TWINS?

BOOM Twins s

The BOOM TWINS.   For real.    That’s a screen shot of their last photograph.   The accompanying article described how their father kissed them after this shot – kissed them good-bye.  They were fitted with ex pl^  osi ve    vests – and used in a baw^ming somewhere in the Middle East.

BOOM.   They’re all gone now.

As a former teacher of 12-year-olds, sometimes;  as a  mom of kids who used to be 12 years old;    and as a woman who was 12 years old once;   as a human being who hopes there are many happy  12-year-olds in the world now and in the future,     I find this repulsive,  evil, alarming,   and, quite frankly,  I’m frightened by the deafening silence coming from most of the world. 

This aggressive political/religious movement has awakened and is advancing much faster than we have even noticed yet.       Recently,  these people planned to build a 220,000 square foot  mos^  que/religious center in an American community quite near where I live. The community voting overwhelmingly against it, something like 38,000 to 1,400.   

The “religious” people promptly sued, crying discrimination,   and . . .  they’re not only building their new facility,  but the American city will pay for their insurance costs – and will pay for their $200,000 insurance deductibles in the future.   

It would be very useful if we stopped to figure that one out.    It’s becoming a very big hump.

I’ve been saving these next photos for a while, and I don’t want to wait any longer.   Men and women are so complementary to each other.  God made us equal in value, equal in worth,  and happily,  of great help to each other.     A culture cannot put down one sex or the other and expect to function well or for very long.   Denigrate one sex and you weaken the whole culture.

Here is a very eager crowd:

Woman eager camera

They’re waiting for something to begin and they’re taking photos of the people coming up onto the platform.

There are bareheaded young men and head-covered young women.

And the action BEGINS!

Woman and cane

The man in brown is taking aim.   The woman is going to be caned, in public. Does it matter what her crime was?    Does it even matter how many blows she was given?   It is an abomination – to a Christian mind –  that this could even happen.   No one in the crowd wants to stop it.    Their minds are 180 degrees turned around from our minds.

Yes, it’s in Indonesia.   this time.   But here in America we are already having a problem with  “honor” killings,  faces destroyed by acid,  genital mutilations,   forced abortions,  forced rapes,  forced marriages . .  .  humiliations and beatings within those marriages.  Rapes, beatings, and bullying of Americans.    Please remember, for instance,  the little child in Idaho,  raped and beaten in her own apartment building, by a group of boys from this foreign culture, some too young to even carry out the rape.

When this caning was over with,  the women, in the pink headscarf,  had to be carried off.

Woman carried away

This is not a religion.    This is not even a political movement.

This is just . . .  Trash:

Religion of Trash.jpg

This is the new “movement”    that faces the Western World, formerly Christendom;  a Western World  that used to know how to deal with growing “humps” like this.

Humps can grow mighty big.

 

 

 

EITHER/OR

February 23, 2017

 

Well,   they do have that right  —

freedom-to-hell

It’s either Freedom  —  for all of us.

Or it’s an  inevitable development of Hell on earth.

Either/or.

CALLING ALL GENTLEMEN !!

February 22, 2017

Gentlemen needed to come to the rescue:

kicking-a-girl

 

Yeah,  they took turns kicking her while one of the men video’d the “fun.”  *  Muslims like to show their superiority over Western women.

____________________________________

Europeans live where Christendom once reigned.    Modernist Europeans are rapidly giving up the Christianity that lay at the foundation of their own cultures.  They live now only on the momentum of existing values, left over from Christian times,  but the momentum is,  uh . . .  weakening.

We still retain words, though, like ladies and gentlemen,  and the attending respect of one for the other,  each in his own sphere of responsibility and expectations.

Now the “gentlemen”  are walking around a bit confused,  clueless,  weakened;  wounded by a society which tells them they are here only to  make money and have fun.    Men have been  “quieted.”

And the ladies are merely women, alone,  wondering why they’re supposed to act like men,  other than to make money and attain the power to do whatever the “heck”  they want.     (Sorry, no coarse language from this lady.)

When I was young I read a good novel of a rousing battle in the Middle Ages.  In the worst fury of the battle,  a lady dropped to her knees in great fear and could think of nothing else but to pray.

knight-with-rose

An  enemy  knight saw her and came to lead her away to shelter.    “A parfait gentle knight,”  as the old poem goes.     A knight does not only fight fiercely for a cause,  but he must know when to be gentle.

Sometimes he must act with strength,   gently.

Remember this Iraqi child?   On his way to being burned alive, with the rest of his family.

burned-aiive

He was.

How about these girls,  waiting to be . . .   you know.

sexual-vilence-she-cant

ALL  of  the 6 or 7 Crusades were Defensive in nature.      Parts of a couple of them were disorganized with inexperienced leaders;  and selfish,  evil men accompanied the Crusaders.  The Church excommunicated many of these aggressive bandits, and if the leaders of the criminal bands were of the nobility, the Church put an Interdict on their lands.  A chilling punishment.

But, still, all of the Crusades were Defensive.    It’s a 1,400 – year old war against Christianity.     In today’s world they have stated that their goal is to crush “Rome,”  by which they mean Christianity,  by which they mean Europe and all Western nations.

Us.

Some people at work call Wednesdays   “hump day”   because we’re at the middle of the work week;   keep working,  keep  doing what you must,   and you will make it up and over that hump in the middle of the week.   Then you can rest.

The Western World has a hump to get over too.   I’ve always wanted to assign my Wednesday writing to this problem of the Advance of the Worldwide Caliphate.

This young lady is the West.

kicking-a-girl

We have a ‘hump”  to get over.

knight-on-horse

You may not choose to don “shining” armor,  you may choose combat boots,  or you may choose pen and paper  (well, keyboard and, uh,  “device”)   or you may choose to become internally and privately a strong gentleman,  as you wait and to watch for what you must do.

   I told you before that I “think in plaid.”     But I don’t want to make this simple idea too complex.

I’m not done with  the strands of colors yet.    I’m not done with “ladies and gentlemen,”  nor with  pushing back the Caliphate which is coming.

CALLED TO SHARE OUR BROTHERS’ WORK

February 20, 2017

(Spreading lies;  successful victimhood;  television zombies)

To follow up on a portion of the last two posts,    we, here in America,  shall soon be called upon to answer the calls given to our European brothers and sisters at various times in the 11th  through the 17th centuries.*

The Muslims have ultimately  WON  all these  C^ ru  sad  es, only temporarily pushing back their march towards a World Caliphate.   Now they have plenty of collaborators in the West.

Spreading the lie:

lenin-and-lying

(ascribed variously to Lenin and to Goebbels)

News reports today describe  large “demonstrations”   in New York City and in Detroit this weekend,  including a loud “call to prayer”   and loud shouting out to the American people that their god is greater.

Comments on these reports pretty much show our opposition to this advance of Islam in America,   although the “demonstrators”  have the television cameras and they have  perfected the Victimhood  language:      They are (1)   only asking for their rights, and (2)   are lying about our government policies.

islam-lying

The lie is that there is a “muslim ban”  applied to immigrants by our government.   There IS no Muslim ban.   

One commenter on the “news” article reminded us about their attitude and aims –  from their book:

Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”.
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
Quran (3:28) – “Let not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever of you does that has nothing with Allah , except when taking precaution against them in prudence. And Allah warns you of Himself, and to Allah is the final destination.”

I’ve looked these up before in the K^  or   an,  so I think they’re accurate.   (The original words, of course, are in ancient, classical Arabic, which few can read today, but the attitude in these words is what is propagated.)

You may have heard on television . . .

news-propaganda

. . .  that a  certain Miss Sarsour,  spokesman for Hamas (a terrorist group)  in this country and organizer of Leftist women in this country  (the silly pink hat march in Washington) –  warned during New York’s “demonstration”   that  President Trump could issue an executive order for putting Muslims in internment camps,  as President Roosevelt did during World War Two.

So.

They are placing themselves in opposition to us,   and perhaps the opposition will keep building and building and building . . . .

Our Christian brothers and sisters in Europe   had to rise up and push back in the past.    I hope we  Americans are in good shape to preserve our own culture today ** – welcoming others,  but preserving the foundations of American culture and law.

.*     (And during WWI and WWII, when the Hitler’s socialist army joined the Muslim armies in the Middle East and Africa, although this was in the context of world wars,  not a call to a c^  rus  ade.)

.**   But now we have to be careful how we try to hang on to our culture.    Speak out?    Indicate our opposition?       In a Canadian mosque  recently,  a big mosque in Totronto, the imam inside called for   (quote) “the total destruction of the enemies of Islam and the purification of Al-Aqsa Mosque from the ‘filth of the Jews.’ ”    This call for violence and death against Jews and Western non-muslims is so offensive,  it does not call for any further comment.

However,  when Canadians gathered to protest this call for violence and death against themselves,   now face possible “hat ^e-cr ime”  charges.    You know,  criticism against  Muslims is  considered    “hat^e-sp eech.

Western Laws have been changed (sabotaged) to work against Westerners.
