GOING DOWN WITH “WHATEVER”

February 21, 2019

 

Alternate title:   William C.  or  Robert E. —   whatever.     Whatever.     WhatEVER.

_________________________________________________________

Two kind of funny stories; 

First:

American students in universities and high schools are being taught that American heroes of the past are   evil racists!   oppressors of women!    greedy capitalists!  

Or whatever.

But  “Words have consequences.”

Recently some young people in North Carolina pulled down and damaged a statue of a war hero from their state.   It was placed prominently in an outdoor public area of a museum, for all to be proud of their native son.  (He is the founder of the army air corps of World War II – the foundation of our modern air force.)

But what was his “sin”  in the minds of theses vandals?        His full name is William C.  Lee.

Get it?      . . .  “Lee.”

Like Robert E.,  the highly moral Christian southern gentleman with proven and respected military skills,  who was asked to defend his home state of Virginia, whose history he loved,  where his family lived.      He was asked to lead the army of the CSA.      Robert E.  Lee.

The South has a right to be proud of this man.

William C.   Robert E.     These vandals simply saw “Lee”  and mindlessly  (I mean that,  without using their minds)   vandalized a statue.         “Lee.”   Whatever.

 

Miseducation and words   have consequences.*

 

Funny Story #2

Sometimes the consequences are just funny on the surface.

An interviewer went around asking young adults if they could name the Seven Continents.

One pretty young lady, smiling in the bright sunny day,  was asked is she could name the seven continents.

She looked a little shocked, at first.   A blank, bemused look on her face.   And then she asked:  “You mean of the United States?”

Now, the interviewer could have answered,  “Yes,  what are the seven continents of the United States?”

Or he could have said,  (and what he did say) :  “No,  what are the seven continents of the world?”

Either way her answer began:    “. . . . America . . . .”

Nope.    Mercifully, she didn’t make anymore guesses.  She was stymied after that.
“America”  is not a continent.    But what if she’s old enough to vote?   How will she know anything about the world?  About international politics?   About the issues that face our lawmakers and representatives, and our president?   About what money should be allocated to which systems of defense?    How will she know that we actually have  borders,  and that our borders define our country.

____________________________________________________________

We’d better find out what’s going on in the minds of the next three  generations, alive today.     Words have consequences.   Words mean things.   If they ‘re not too precise about the words they hear and use,    these young people will be wide open to those who are.

Is it too much to ask that adults take some action, maybe start calling attention to our failed and hi-jacked  educational system?     Protest?      Make changes?

 

Or else our nation  will go down . . .  in flames . . .   carried by the Whatever’s.

ROARING WEATHER

February 8, 2019

It’s not often that the weatherman predicts  “Roaring Winds”  as part of his weather report.

But he did yesterday, and we did have roaring winds all night long,  into today, from the sound of it.    Along with the high winds we had  drizzle, heavy rain, sleet,  snow, and a temperature plunge from 52 degrees down to -6 (below zero) wind chill, this morning.  Oh, yes,  and sunshine with snow squalls.    Normal winter weather(s).

Throughout all this, somewhere along the way —

Door free front  .     — my front door thawed out and I’m able to open it now.

Ditto the back sliding glass doors –

Door free back

So, just to report up here in The Spruce Tunnel,  I’m free! and no longer iced into my house by frozen doors.

Our Winter Faery:

Winter Fairy 300

I took this  photo recently, and it astonishes me that I can’t remember where.   It was hanging on a wall in a public place;  I walked by,  did a double-take,  and embarrassed myself by taking out my camera right in front of a  bunch of strangers . .  . .

Well,  you find interesting pictures where you can,  and this one reminded me of my own back yard — and the woodsy sprites and fairies that haunt human imaginations.

Hey!  Anything is possible,  right?

dignity of a congressman

She is the new young congressman who tells us we can eschew airplanes and cars and build a railway system to cross the oceans!

(At least   I  don’t really,  really believe in magic and fairies.)

Here is my frozen fairy-world back yard:

Weather Iced Trees

Normal, after an ice storm.

Our birds are not going to get a drink:

Weather no birds

We’re actually having a normal winter,  full of everything that happens during the winter in the Far North.

Here is the surface of my driveway:

Weather iced driveway

It was actually not slippery to walk on because the ice had come down with snow and sleet, producing a measure of bumpy traction:

 

Weather not slippery

 

Another astonishment came, however, from a “weather”  report from the entertainment-news media on the radio last night.   The news reader —   (I wish they could hire readers who could actually read and pronounce the words they’re reading.  They obviously have no idea what they’re reading –  which maybe lets them off the hook for this:

“2018 is yet again an extremely warm year on top of a long-term global warming trend,” said GISS Director Gavin Schmidt. . . .     Two U.S. agencies, the United Kingdom Met Office and the World Meteorological Organization analyzed global temperatures in slightly different ways, but each came to the same conclusion on Wednesday: 2018 was the fourth-warmest year on record behind 2016, 2015 and 2017.

Followed by the ever popular:  “It’s going to GET WORSE so you’d better listen to your climate change politicians . . . .

While 2018 was the fourth-warmest year on record, British meteorologists are predicting the next five years will be much hotter, maybe even record-breaking.

You know,  there’s been a lot of analysis of these ridiculous statements;  you can find it all over the Internet.    The temperature charts have been selectively used, and the “conclusions”  even contradict their own previously-published charts.

Cold weather, like today,  is not a Cold Climate,  or even evidence of a Getting-Colder Climate.  Hot weather is not Hot Climate,  nor evidence of a Getting-Hotter Climate.

The climate on any planet in the solar system  changes as it’s affected by our changing sun.

The Grand Scheme of a Massive Transfer of Wealth across the globe planned by the Global Socialist Rulers  is simply not supported by any science or any history of our planet.

Yet the scares go “roaring out” over the airwaves.

Time for us to do some roaring  back.

Listen up, dear young lady –

OUR SOCIALIST SORORITY GIRLS

February 6, 2019

Chilling !   Chilling!    

My main takeaway from the State of the Union speech:

.                         (We  can  lose our country.)

_____________________________________________________________________

(In  spite of the 76% approval of the president’s State of the Union speech,    we  can  lose our country.)

_________________________________________________________________

 

You all probably know my stance on socialism:   All aspects of our lives controlled by Central government planning — “for the good of society,”  of course.  It has never worked and never can work, no matter how earnestly and optimistically its adherents will try to make it work.

From actual experience,  socialism has always brought with it Death, in its  many unnecessary and too-early  forms and causes.   *

 

flag

My Grandma’s country lived under the menace of soviet socialism, so much so that as  this tiny country capitulated more and more, a new term was invented:  Finlandization.

russo reindeer

Finland fought against soviet socialist aggression, 1939-1941 or so,  with their skis and reindeer and brave young men, full of SISU.    That’s a word I grew up with, long after that little war.

They kind of win;  it goes down as a win for Finland because Russia had to retreat at that time.  But the win brought devastating results to Finland:

russo fin

No,  not just death of soldiers and starvation to the people.
Finlandization was the result,  accommodation to socialism;  even when there was no immediate need,  Finland became a socialist country.

 

It would take too much time to describe today’s socialist Finland right now because I want to get to Hitler’s  girls:

hitlers girls young.

Socialism gets our children, while they’re very young. **  These are national socialist girls.

hitlers girls

Hitler’s national socialist girls,  (again the color white predominates).  They are highly-favored,  privileged,  elite,  and giddy with their power.

These are “our”  socialist girls last night:

Sor girls

When President Trump said, “We will never become a socialist country,”  they booed and hissed and rolled their eyes in disrespect.

Our Congressional elite socialist sorority girls :

sor in white

Truly, it was chilling to watch.

sor pelosiBut they have a watchful leader directing them.     It was chilling also to watch her hand signals,  directing them to do this or that,  now it’s okay to stand,  now it’s not . . .     Naked Power.

Socialism is by necessity dictatorial and tyrannical and driven by “power-over”  others,  over party members and over “enemies” of their party.

 

(Latest news is that the one Democrat woman who wore pink, not white,  has been severely warned . . . .   )

 

Growing socialism, especially propagated by the entertainment-news media script readers,  is responsible for the apparent  “divisiveness” in our country.    It’s a manufactured division;  Americans are not by nature like that — away from Washington DC,  away from the media.

(I’ve always wanted to make an appeal to my foreign readers:     what you see in our entertainment-news media,  our movies,  our so-called “popular” music — none of this represents  ordinary everyday Americans.  The elites, however,  are doing their best to stir us up.   We are fearful sometimes to even speak out -m as Americans used to do.)

As much as we like our president,  and we know there is a variety of opinions,   it was chilling to watch  where the obstinate unreasoned  mindless opposition  was coming from.    It was chilling to see their numbers  growing — I think because Americans are “nice” — and we can’t really believe it.

We’re busy doing our best,   living our ordinary lives.

Not realizing we’re losing our “ordinary lives.”

Just watch the socialist Game Plan over the  next  two years  :   Investigate.  Indict.  Impeach.

Investigate.  Indict.  Impeach.

____________________________________________________________

 

.*   Death.  Over a hundred million  people killed by their own socialist leaders as the system is implemented,  as history has witnessed.

socialist DEATH TOLL

 

Death,  by increasingly lowered standard of living and unavailability of goods and products:    high prices,  high taxes,  rationing,  starvation, unattended sickness.

Death,   under “social pressure”  for the good of society:   rationing health care;   euthanasia of the unwanted,  the horror of non-voluntary euthanasia,   abortion,  and the murder of little babies in the process of being born,  or shortly after the child’s birth –

(If you are for “choice”  you ought to be able to look at the “product” of choice):

From  THIS:

sor about babies

To  THIS:

sor save me

And, yes,  it was testified to Congress,  they DO sell baby body parts,  under socialism.

Baby Bodies

 

______________________________________________________

Schools:

.**   I was a young schoolteacher and witnessed the incorporation of socialist teaching methods and the socialist curriculum into American public schools.   I fought it,  best I could.  At least in my own classrooms.    But it was then that I learned about the power of the socialist consensus.

Teacher training schools (also known as colleges or universities)  are fully saturated with socialist  principles.  The students graduating out of them know nothing different,  no alternative pedagogy.    The teachers today know only socialism, and they are teaching our children nothing but socialism.

PIZZA IS ITALIAN

February 1, 2019

 

Now that our extreme weather emergency is over for a while, the “pressure”is off,  we’re not on “alert” anymore —  things are lightening up a bit.

Only two things to think about this weekend:   Grandson Cooper, who lives in the High Sierras,   will be having a blizzard, expecting 3 – 6 feet of snow.  That’s nothing new for him and  his mommy and daddy,  but it still is a bit disruptive.

6 Snowed in 400

Cooper’s snowfall a couple years ago.

And it will  probably be a  fun blizzard, since they live surrounded by ski resorts on every available mountain top.

The second thing this weekend is  the Super Bowl.   Last game of the season.  Of course I’m not going to miss it!  

football food

While I don’t plan a party,  I still look forward to the last indulgence in football food. Pizza’s  been on my mind — so that’s what caught my attention while reading the news today, an article about illegal immigration and its effects on our country.

We all know we’re “a nation of immigrants”  — legal immigrants.  Our grandparents,  whoever came here before us,   had enough wisdom to understand that our new American culture would be a Melting Pot . . .  all blended together sharing American values and language and experiences — and especially food:    Like  pizza, apple pie . . . .

I read the comments following the article.   Seemed to be a pretty good-natured set of comments, many listing the good things we enjoy today  in our America.

And then someone commented:

Pizza is Italian. Apple pie is Dutch. Louis Chevrolet was French. And Donny is  Scottish and German.

“Donny”  referring to President Trump probably.

 

Yeah,  Think of all the football food!     Throw in tacos,  Chinese takeout,  sushi for some, uh —  popcorn from the American Indians, and  hot dogs from . . .  well, Chicago maybe, via all the wonderful German sausage makers.   Cheese from Switzerland and other European countries.

Football!   A real international experience!

 

So how did we create an American culture?    How did we blend ourselves all together?

Ask a “wise man” —

ET GO HOME

 

The ones who wanted to be American, stayed here!   The ones who didn’t, went back to their homes.

Here’s the new caravan of “would-be”  Americans coming:

Caravan New Note Flags

Proudly marching behind the flag of their “new country”?

Not.

 

 

 

THREE TALES

January 21, 2019

Three Tales, a Tale of Three “Groups,” in chronological order . . .  to reveal the  power of the entertainment-news media:

First,  neither Hubbie nor I are “joiners.”  We don’t  “join”  movements, although we were aware of things going on in the world and had opinions,  sometimes strong opinions.  We just don’t seem to trust a group often enough to associate with the group.

So I’m not defending any of these groups,  just observing . . .

And I won’t name any “groups”  because of the hostility and distortions from the entertainment-news media.

(1)

Hubbie, a high school accounting teacher,  felt very strongly about where our tax money was going.   So did a lot of other Americans.  Taxes were high and we had no control over how they were spent.  More commonly, we had no knowledge of how the tax money was being spent.

“No Taxation Without Representation”  !!    That was the motto that began the American Revolution.  About ten years ago, we knew we were once again quite  “unrepresented”  when it comes to spending our tax money,  and several  million Americans chose a date to publicly protest  this state of affairs.    A group planned to meet on our nearby state capitol building lawn.   Good speakers were chosen, a couple nationally famous.    Hubbie planned to go, and I went with him because even then I was concerned about his health and his strength.   This was something he really, strongly believed in, though.

Here’s a photo from my camera,  April 2009.

tea party

I was both surprised and delighted to find myself among 2,000 nice people,  just like Hubbie and me,  who felt the same way about high taxes and wanted to be heard.    Men, women, and children were present.  It was a “family outing” with a purpose.

“Real Men”  Take Charge:   A little side note:     Of the 2,000 people, only one young man stood out from the crowd.  He shouted over the speakers,  he used profanity,  he acted angry – it was an act, I’m sure, copying what he sees on television – and he waved a big sign.   What happened?  Several  men,  fathers and husbands,  walked over to him and said firmly, “We don’t act like that here.”   They said  a few other things too and made it plain that if he didn’t leave, he’d probably be “escorted”  out of there.   We didn’t want him there because of his behavior.   The young man did leave, and calmness returned.  As a woman,  I felt safer because of these men.)

After the rally, people walked over to local restaurants and had friendly conversations with new-found friends.  It felt like a neighborhood barbecue!   The event had been orderly, full of  these nice people,  and we left no garbage or damage behind.   Apparently this happened all over the country that day.

I remember being astonished at the hostile press coverage, including outright lies about what took place that day,  until  uploaded YouTube videos proved each of these stories false.  The politicians who  had our tax money in their hands continued to spread the false stories, even to the point of Sen. Pelosi weeping in front of the cameras, pleading with the people in this movement not to  “start riots or hurt anybody.”    I remember thinking “who is she talking about?”

 

(2.)

The second group event happens annually, with sometimes as many as 500,000 people meeting in Washington DC to call attention to the decriminalization of killing unborn children.

Same kind of people as the first group:    “nice,”  calm,  orderly,  clean, friendly,  earnest, concerned,  and wanting to call attention to a terrible problem.    Over 3,000 children who haven’t been born yet are killed everyday in this country!!!!

(Another little personal side note:     I taught in public schools for several years – before my own children were born.  When they were old enough to be at school all day,  I decided to go back into public school teaching —  however,  there  was by then a huge surplus of licensed schoolteachers!!!       What had happened?     In the previous eight years, we had been killing off TWO CLASSROOMS worth of children every single day, and that’s just int he state where I live!   Two classrooms   –  just . . .  gone!)

march

This weekend another March took place, a little smaller than past years, but still as fervent.    There were families and school children,  teenagers, college students mothers, fathers,  ministers, teachers;  there was  no profanity, threats,  violence,  confrontations,  and when it was over,  there was no garbage or damage left behind.

There was also almost  zero  press coverage from the entertainment-news media.   (Except for theattempted controversy over the aggressive move of a  member of a Separatist “Black-Hebrew”  cult who attempted to intimidate some high school kids who were waiting for their bus to come.    Although the media had tried to make the teenagers the aggressors,  actual video shows they were actually victims of this group’s hatred.)

(3)

There was another  “march”  in Washington DC this weekend.    I can’t show you any posters and signs because they are pretty much full of profanity,  bad language,   violent suggestions,  accusations,  X-rated words and embarrassing pictures.  It was ugly and immoral and totally unAmerican.    You don’t convince your fellow Americans of anything by shouting at them.

I can’t show you any photos, but you know what angry faces look like.

The speeches were strident and angry and promoted violent actions against those who disagree with them.     Some spoke of violent things they wished to have done against the president, and again, against his family, including the children in it.   They seemed to not even like differing factions within their group.  Even the press called their movement  “fractured.”

There are a few photos of garbage left behind,  broken things, overturned barrels and cones . . . .

The entertainment-news media gave them many hours of coverage.

______________________________

 

I said this was going to be about the power of the media.   I don’t know.   The media distorted and demeaned the first group, so that I don’t even know if it’s in existence anymore except as a term of derision.

The  media lies about and ridicules the concerns of the second group, when they’re not ignoring it altogether.   There are fewer numbers now in that group too,  but I don’t know exactly why.

The third group seems to be destroying itself by its own viciousness,  but so far its basking in glory and great hope from the media.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FUNNY, SAD, AND SILENCED

January 18, 2019

(Identify-Villify-Nullify-Destroy)

________________________________________________________________

 

Maybe I shouldn’t combine these two stories . . .   Maybe not,  but they are both contributing to my experience on this Friday –  one funny and serious;  one unfunny and serious.

 

Funny and serious:

So it’s Friday today!   Who doesn’t like Friday!!!!?

These guys don’t, apparently:

sad fish 300

I was shopping  for some fish this week,  at a store that is known to fly in its fish twice a day.   The fish is always fresh and it tastes just the way you’d hope the fish would taste.   I took a few photos of their colorful display of fish of all sorts of varieties, and when I got home,  this photo caught my eye.

What a sad group of little guys lying there on ice!     Their expressions stopped me in my tracks.     They look almost human in their . . .  sadness.

sad fish cr

So, well,   it’s Friday today.    A day of abstention from  meat.   One way to get good daily protein is by eating fish, although right now, as a type these words,  I’m eating a nice hot bowl of red lentil soup (but the reason for that I’ll put in the next posting).

Fasting and abstention, among other religious practices, have been a part of the Hebrew and Christian religions for far more than 2,000 years.

Since Christ died on a Friday  (the end of the Thursday/Friday Passover feast),   Christians participate in that act of sacrifice by their own acts of self-denial and penance, abstention from meat being the most common and the easiest to do.    Sort of easy.

These fish seem to understand the tragic necessity of Good Friday.

 

Unfunny and serious:

Another thing that I’ve experienced on this Friday is not abstinence,  but absence.   And that’s not funny.

I knew that the annual March For Life was going to be held today, but I waited until today to really pay attention.    But I couldn’t find it anywhere.   Radio news, television news,   not even the DrudgeReport  carried the March.  Maybe it was just me.  Maybe they did carry it but for such a short time that I missed it.

march

I watched my local TV station,  and there, at the end of an hour and a half of local news was a 10 second mention of people from our state and the state next to us who had left on buses today to attend the March in Washington . . ..    That’s it.   I went to their Website.   Same short video.

I went to  our local  newspaper’s website;   nothing.  I used the search engine and typed in  March For Life.   I got ONE result,  an article about  the 2017-2018 March For Life –  I don’t know how they combined them.     Then I searched for March For Life 2019.   I got nothing, except for a warning that I had only one more “free” article to read, and then I’d have to pay 99 cents for more.

Yahoo “news”  had an extremely   short mention of the March,  just the what, when, and where, and that it happened.    I went to the Washington Post Website and found a slightly longer article,  what, when, where,  followed by a long refutation of everything the Right to Life people believe in, throwing statistics around as though they were invented out of thin air.    Uh,  maybe . . . .

Finally I came across an article on LifeSite news which reported exactly what I had been finding.  ABC/NBC/CBS  according to their findings,  had completely ignored the March For Life  event this year, but spent a lot of time on the pro-abortion, pro lots of things  Women’s March on Saturday.   (Full of controversy itself, as liberals are pulling out of it, afraid to be tainted by anti-semitic members in the movement.)

So I wasn’t wrong.

______________________________________________________

But this is serious,  far more serious than we all care to admit   I sure hope I’m wrong    about that.

Not too long ago,  in living memory of some people still here with us,    Germany began marginalizing a group of people.   Here’s the process:

First they ignore and and de-legitimize that group

Then they demonize that group, calling them names,  making up false stories  (fake news) about them;   mocking them;  making them look ridiculous

Then they make that group look un-social, anti-social,  dangerous to society

Then they begin to identify members of that group and isolate that group.

(In today’s world they would have “de-monetized”  any member of that group and pulled their videos and messages off of YouTube and Facebook, etc.)

Then the State criminalizes speech.    It criminalizes that group and everyone who thinks like the group.

Then criminal sanctions are applied . . .  fines . . .  arrests . . .  imprisonments . . .  and,of course,   execution is the inevitable and most efficient way to get rid of the opposition.

That’s serious.

Just pay attention to the words and attitudes of our entertainment-news media and see for yourself how far along this pathway we’ve come.

 

Identify-Villify-Nullify-Destroy

Memorize that process.    It’s still a mystery why the very highly educated,  cultured, and refined German nation slipped into that process.

Identify-Villify-Nullify-Destroy

It’s the very opposite of  the free discourse, political discussion,  that any culture must have in order to survive.

IT’S NOT OVER WHEN IT’S OVER

January 16, 2019

It’s really not too early to think about the next election.   Normally it would be, but these are not normal times.   There is much we have to learn and not much time to learn those essential things.   I offer an effective prayer . . . .

_______________________________________________________

In one state (California)  in the 2018 election,  Republicans won ten seats in congress.  TEN!   Ten.   Ten.

Ten Republican seats in Congress.

But the radical, progressive wing of the Democrat party would not accept that the election was over.    After a couple  weeks of a process called  Ballot Harvesting,  nine congressional seats were handed over to the Democrats.

v how many times

(How many times?)

(That’s humor . . . )

Now, this went on in other states too.     Republican victories handed to Democrats.

vote handling

It’s the latest  winning move on the part of the radical wing of the Democrat party.   Would all Democrats be happy with this dishonest method – as long as the result is a win?

Nine congressional seats transferred over to the party that didn’t get those votes from the actual  voters  —  and that’s just one state.

In these days of investigations, findings, and admissions concerning Big Tech corporations who are opposed to Republicans of any kind,  those such as Google and YouTube have been found to have conspired against the American people to influence elections in favor of the Democrat party:

Just don’t show  the popularity of  conservative subjects in people’s searches.   Just don’t show videos by conservatives.

v unblock

 

 

And, yes,  political analysts have studied the issue and have determined that millions of voters were influenced by the skewed presentations of YouTube and Google,  Facebook “news,”  and Twitter feeds.      Shadow-banning is real and it’s useful to the radical Democrats and progressives.

More and more,  people are beginning to resent having their minds molded by the desires of employees at Google.     They have become the Joseph Goebbels  of the whole world,  with effective technological means that would have astonished Goebbels himself .

google dictator

 

The resentment builds.    There are lawful ways in this particular country to correct this dangerous course we are walking down.

I’m hoping we take these lawful ways.

I’m  looking for that famous  “Tipping Point.”

__________________________________________________

 

If you are the praying type,  here is a prayer for our country.    It’s attributed to Sister Marie de Saint Pierre of a century ago.  I think she and President Abraham Lincoln were reading from the same Holy Book:

“Eternal Father,  I offer Thee the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ and all the instruments of His Holy Passion that thou mayest put divisions in the camp of thine enemies for as Thy beloved Son hath said,  A kingdom divided against itself shall fail.*   Amen.” 

Jesus died for our iniquities.   He offered Himself up for our sins.     This is a valid prayer.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE A TEST!

January 15, 2019

(The “teacher” in me – trying not to be too preachy.  But then, as we all know,  “All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”      – Lord Acton)

___________________________________________________

Still talking about Liberty, here.  Something that should concern us all.  I’m a little disconcerted with the way things are going;  i.e.,   increasing loss of our personal Liberty.

The Truckers in America have noticed this.

trcu convoy

Some have a truckers’ strike planned for sometime in April to call attention to their liberty-less plight. *   Since I listen to their show nearly every night, I understand where they’re coming from even though the disruption to the supply chain in our country could be very bad.   (But the truckers’ strike may not happen.)

I’m going to let other people do some writing for me tonight.     First,  just for fun,   here’s an interesting bit on Liberty vs. State interference of  religious practice  from a blog written by a Father Hunwicke, of England:

—  Well, wait a minute.  if you’re not up to speed on European politics,  this might not make sense to you.  You see,  Belgium recently passed a law saying the government will no longer support particular religious requirements concerning meat.    And then Father Hunwicke contrasts that decision with Poland’s bishops declaring that such laws are prejudicial  against religious practices.

He writes with wit and  sarcasm:

Surely, it is outrageous that the Belgian regime should outlaw the provision of Kosher and Hallal meat.

I seem to remember that the Polish Bishops’ Conference opposed, successfully, the adoption of such a law in Poland. I wonder how long it will take for the generality of people to realise that secular liberalism as promoted by the Zeitgeist will give you tyranny; while a robust Catholicism is more likely to support freedom.

But then, we recall how sensitively the Belgians ran their Empire.

I wonder how aware they are that the claim of one of their ministers, that State law takes precedence over Religious law, aligns them with so many great historical figures, from Nero and Domitian down to Stalin and Hitler.

“Plucky little Belgium”, indeed.

Boorish Bully-boy Belgium.

What we can take from this is his observation that the Catholics in Poland are showing much more religious tolerance than the socialist government of Belgium.

The myth is that if you are religious, you are ipso facto “intolerant.”    Actual reality proves otherwise.     It is today’s Big State governments that are intolerant of religion — and are a danger to anyone with religious convictions.   Hence,  the American Bill of Rights,  First Amendment, specifically.     The Bill of Rights is there to restrict government power.

In the last posting I wrote about  State versus Church issues that are confronting us more and more today,   in society,  our workplace,  our public office duties.    Previously, in America,  we held on to the principle that there is no religious test  for belonging to this society.

stocks

We don’t have to prove that we are of a certain religion, nor do we have to prove that we have no religion at all, at least not one that would interfere with our  public life .

Hold on to that principle!    There is no “religious test”  for Americans.   At least there shouldn’t be.   I would recommend that you recognize it wherever this attitude crops up – and that you have “rehearsed”  ways to combat it.

Nicely, of course.  Respectfully.

 

 

_____________________________________________

The rest of this blog just repeats the last posting, with names this time of those who have acted like the Inquisitors of people nominated for public office who just happen to have religious faith.

We don’t know where this is heading,  especially is we do nothing and let it happen,  but we should all remember that    “The first thing you do as a Fascist Government is to remove all Religion. Just ask Hitler or Stalin. “

Here’s the quotation:

Quick,somebody please remind Democratic Senators, Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono, that they’re members of what’s supposed to be the tolerant party. Based on the bigoted questions they recently posed to a judicial nominee, they may think that Democrats are the heirs of the anti-Catholic Know Nothing party.

Senators Harris and Hirono challenged federal judicial nominee Brian Buescher about his affiliation with the Knights of Columbus, an international Catholic charitable organization with nearly 2 million members. What, specifically, are the senators upset about? That the Catholic organization espouses the teachings of the Catholic Church. How dare it!
And remember, Harris and Hirono aren’t the only senators making these suggestions. In 2017, Democratic Senators Dick Durbin and Dianne Feinstein suggested that judicial nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s religious belief rendered her unfit for the bench. A few months before that, the supposedly progressive Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., suggested that Russell Vought, an evangelical nominee for a position in the Office of Management and Budget, was unfit for public service because of his belief in the Gospel.

Sanders’ treatment of Vought makes clear that it’s not only Catholics who should be alarmed by this trend among Democrats and progressives. The left seeks to stifle any public expressions of religious belief, whether it’s relevant to one’s job or not, and block from government anyone whose religious beliefs run counter to the ideology of the left.

LOOKING UP WITH KIRILL

January 10, 2019

 

(A continuing thought from yesterday,  but I hope this post title is not disrespectful.)

_____________________________________________

I present to you Patriarch Kirill,   the head of all the Russian Orthodox people.

krill patriarch

Officially his title is:  “Patriarch of Moscow and all Rus and Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church”    . . .  (The Rus being the area around Kiev  that my Viking ancestors conquered and developed into a little economic empire.)  

I believe he is well-liked by his people.    I have read some of his words from time to time, and he seems very well-educated,  experienced with people, wise, and above all a man of sincere faith.

He also sees the world over the  shoulder of a very important world leader.

kirill putin conscince

And it  seems that he has been “looking up”  too,  observing the development of our Microwave Radiation Communication devices  and all the ways that we are being digitally identified and followed,  whether with our Internet use,  cell phones, and microchips and online travel plans and  financial transactions.

He also seems to know the book of Revelation, *    which is one glimpse of conditions at the end of this world,   one glimpse among many others which all seem to tell the same story:    One day all power and all wealth will be consolidated into one governing force, with one “person” at the head of it all.   This “person”  will need the absolute compliance and loyalty of all people of the world.   

And this will be a difficult and dangerous development for the world because each human must transfer his faith and loyalty away from Christ  (or any other political or religious philosophy)  and to himself.     No strays allowed.  No dissenting opinion allowed.

k watching you

Compliance is safety in this New World governance headed by an anti-Christ figure.

What Patriarch Kirill has pointed out this week is that all our “connected”  electronic gadgets, from TVs,  phones, cars,  household appliances, our hands if we’re microchipped (for our convenience),   and all the millions of CCTV cameras everywhere and the satellites looking down on us  — all this makes it easier for a powerful world political leader  to rise to power,  eliminating his opposition, and then staying in power, eliminating any dissidents.

We don’t know who this powerful global leader will be,  but the world seems to be trending towards the coming of  his reign.

k coming

Although the anti-Christ-Global Leader will be imbued with very strong negative supernatural “energy,”   he is still human and less than omniscient.   Even Satan himself is less than omniscient.  Only God knows all things.      But the coming Global Leader will need to know everything that might be a threat to his power.

He will be  at the center of all information.

k center of allthings

We are building the  electronic system of interconnectedness that will make this possible.

Oh.  that’s  what Patriarch  Kirill is saying. . . .

 

So, a caution (from me):     It’s not the humans that are insisting on 5G technology.   It’s some vague,  unknown, little understood “force”  that is pressing us on to further dependence upon  digital technology.

k ww.jpg

” Wouldn’t you want a little more candy?”

“Wouldn’t you want a little more downloading speed?”    “Wouldn’t you want all your appliances conveniently connected to you cell phone controller?”    “Wouldn’t you want the latest digital development?”

 

Then this caution about the oh, so fast and convenient microchips , from a Futurist:

The website Futurism calls it a     “digital security nightmare.”

Besides being vulnerable to hackers, a chip implanted in your body means, “They could track where you are, how long you take for lunch every day, or how many times you went to the bathroom if the chip were scanned by a reader,”  Futurism writes. “And opting out of this kind of data collection is a lot more convoluted when you’ve got a chip implanted in your bodily tissues. If you want to go off the grid in even the smallest way, you can leave your wallet at home, but removing a microchip requires a bit more, uh, effort.”

Does our future history have to play out this way?

LOOKING UP

January 9, 2019

No overall comments from me;  just . . .  sharing interesting stuff.     Good reasons to keep “looking up” –   some things are of neutral importance to us (we think);  some things up there are interesting and further study may yield new information about our solar  system;  and some things . . .  downright scary.

You’d never know if you don’t ever look up!

Well, this happened a few years ago . . .

jupiter

The Planet Jupiter lost its southern  belt of clouds.    Scientists don’t really know why that happened,  but they speculate among themselves.   Can’t wait till warmer weather when I can get my telescope out and see this for myself.

jupiter spot  And then,  the thing that identifies Jupiter for us,  that mysterious Red Spot that scientists call a “storm” — we’ve seen it for centuries  . . .  well, that’s going too.  It’s shrinking, and at the present rate it will be all gone in a couple  more years.  Scientists don’t really know why that is happening either.  I can’t imagine Jupiter without its Red Spot.

And then our scientists took us to that farthest border of our solar system,  that uttermost outer boundary that separates us from . . .  well, from the realm of dragons in Nordic literature:  Ultima Thule!

New Horizons sent us photos of this strange object 4 billion miles away  (in the Kuiper Belt):

ultima thule

With an attempt at whimsy,  they named the two segments  Ultima and Thule — and they don’t  really know how it formed that way, there isn’t actually observable evidence for the more usual,  and facile,  explanations.

Just interesting.      Pretty sure I disagree with those who speculate that it is of deliberate design,  except that we’ve photographed other objects like this, somewhat more corroded, but of the same recognizable design.

Another space object, more recently and closer to home — much closer to home!

ast path

Much too close!!   Sometime yesterday,  January 8th,  a small asteroid flew by our planet at a distance of   0  (zero!)  Lunar Distances.     Well,  0.04 LD, to be exact.  It didn’t hit us, after all.   That is the closest approach of an extraterrestrial body in a long time.   It was little, only a meter wide,  but believe it or not,  we’ve got some bigger ones coming and  even closer according to some estimates.

SpaceWeather . com  keeps track of these for us so we don’t have to exercise our own vigilance . . .  but then,  vigilant or not,  what can we do if we see one coming?

Oh,  0.04 LD translates to about 9,000+  miles and that’s well within the orbits of many of our satellites.

And that brings me to the scary stuff that is up there,  or soon will be.

Many of us use these Personal Microwave Emitting devices:

cell phone

In today’s society we’re taught to communicate with someone by turning on our microwave oven and then putting our head up against the door while it’s on . . .  for several minutes – or an hour – however long we want to communicate.

Or we can just turn on our phones and stick it by our ears and communicate  that way. Same effect.

I’m one of the “fortunate”  8% – 15% of the world’s population (according to the W.H.O.)   who can feel the harmful effects of cell phones and cell towers, and which are, of course, everywhere around us.

tower threats 380

I say “fortunate” because at least I can physically feel the necessity of protecting myself and limiting exposure to microwave radiation.    (The “lines” and smeary clouds in the sky are another issue, though perhaps related.)

We are communicating with what they call 4G technology, which is quite powerful radiation and is doing a good job of letting us communicate, download, and whatever else we think is important.    4G technology works, and there’s plenty of “bandwidth” left, plenty of speed for us consumers  (coverage may be a problem in some areas,  but that doesn’t relate to 4G).

We are being told,however, that ‘we want more” – more speed, more bandwidth, more powerful radiation.   You have probably seen many,  many ads convincing us of our need for this.  It’s called 5G.  It’s not just “more,”  it’s 150 times stronger than the 4G that we use.

Here’s a more complete statement from Health Impact News:

5G Phones will be much more Powerful than Previous Phones

The effective radiated power of the 5G phased array antennas in phones will be 10 times more powerful than 4G phones.

No one will be free from exposure.

In addition, 5G beams of microwave radiation will be received and transmitted from new computer equipment, household appliances, and automobiles.

Stationary equipment such as Wi-Fi hubs in homes and offices will be permitted to use microwave beams that are 15 times stronger (300 watts) than the signals from 5G phones or 150 times stronger than 4G phones. [2]

. *   (More scientific stuff for our bodies below for those interested.)

Now, for “Looking Up” as the title of this post says:   Satellites will be used to send the 5G signals to small but ubiquitous antennas placed  everywhere in the world in close proximity to our houses, schools, hospitals — anywhere they want.  Some satellites have been launched in 2017 to test the technology;   hundreds more satellites were launched in 2018;  and by 2020,  20,000 satellites will be up there in the sky beaming down these dangerous microwaves at us,  through our rooftops,  through our bodies . . . .

More on this subject in later posts . . .   So few know that dangers.  But it doesn’t matter.  When some of us tried to stop the construction of new cell towers so close to the other cell towers in our (farming) area,   our Township government looked into it.     At the end of their research, they discovered that the new construction was unstoppable.  Out of our hands.   The command came from some international source.

Now that scared me!

Europe is uncomfortable with the 5G technology too:

5g moratorium

I don’t think they’ll get very far with their “call” for a moratorium.

There is a higher, more powerful spiritual reason this is happening. . . .

______________________________________________________________

5G  More Dangerous than Previous Microwave Systems

Arthur Firstenberg, author, researcher, and advocate for limiting RF exposure from the environment, explains the analysis of 5G radiation that was published in Microwave News in 2002. He stated:

When an ordinary electromagnetic field enters the body, it causes charges to move and currents to flow.

But when extremely short electromagnetic pulses enter the body [5G], something else happens: the moving charges themselves become little antennas that re-radiate the electromagnetic field and send it deeper into the body.

These re-radiated waves are called Brillouin precursors.

They become significant when either the power or the phase of the waves changes rapidly enough.

5G will probably satisfy both requirements. This means that the reassurance we are being given—that these millimeter waves are too short to penetrate far into the body—is not true. [2]

THE OTHER “PRACTICE”

January 2, 2019

 

Caution:    Some “dark” thoughts.  When I say  Do Not Read if you’re squeamish or easily offended,  I really mean  Do Not Read.  Good-bye until next time.

__________________________________________

Sometimes I make plans to write about just “happy” things —  instructive, interesting, uplifting things . . .  But then the Real World intrudes.

I’m trying to watch less of the entertainment-news media.     It’s upsetting.    It’s all about things I can’t really influence in my private position here in the Far North.

I’ve made a good start in my personal life:

CABLE NEWS CLICK

Then again, there are things that we should be concerned about;  even upset about,  fearful.   At least we ought to be informed — and ready.      Maybe some opportunity will come along that we can have some small effect.      If you don’t know about things in the Real World,  you can do nothing about them.

Circumcision and “the other” circumcision:

So,   yesterday we celebrated the Circumcision and Naming of the Infant Child Jesus.

It was noted that these were the first few drops of Blood shed,  foretelling a greater shedding of Blood in His sacrifice for the human race, judged guilty and condemned.    Why “death” to the whole human race?

Hell - Silhouette Man before Red

Are we evil enough to deserve that?

Well,  recently in this region of the country,  some federal judge,  appointed by the Barack Hussein person,   has just ruled that the U.S government has no right to make a law against FMG. *    This isn’t the flippant and blasphemous  OMG —  but it probably deserves a comment like that.   This is the real thing,  “Female Genital Mutilation.”   Also known as Female circumcision.

It’s not a “circumcision.”  It’s actually an excision.

We have laws against it in this country.  Except not all over.  And except now those laws will be considered unconstitutional.    Something like 13  (is it 17?)    (23,  it’s 23, states in this country permit FMG.      We could become a  Safe Haven  for such deeds:    The United States of America!  – formerly a culturally Christian nation

(This is  one reason why the matter of Cultural Assimilation by Legal Immigrants is so important.)

The reason for such a practice is just . . .  just . . .  dastardly!    There is no good reason for doing it.      It’s done on little girls, usually elementary school age.

FMG 1

 

And without anesthetic or the usual sterile environment for a surgical procedure.

FMG 2

Private homes are usually the location in this country.

Here are the usual instruments:
FMG 3 tools

This issue comes up from time to time as we read the news, read books,  hear the celebrity news-readers read out brief  little references to FMG.     Few of us can be really ignorant of the practice.

So,  are we, collectively, as a human race, that evil?    guilty of condemnation for thinking up such ways to harm each other?    for letting such things continue on?    for keeping the knowledge right out of our heads?    for taking no measures,  writing no letters,  doing no praying for such things to cease?

 

That was my question.

HELL spoke

Let us at least pray that someone is working on this issue.

Maybe some people will stop electing officials who make it possible for this practice to continue.

“Civil rights”  supersedes states’ laws?    If that’s okay,   then maybe little girls should  be protected from FMG – as a matter of their civil rights?

These are deliberately thought-provoking questions.     Nothing worthwhile is easy.   Nothing good that must be done will get done by itself.

 

 

December 11, 2018

“Important people” in American politics and their handling of large sums of money.   Let’s look at three:

__________________________________________________________

Just a short observation right now.  After all, I’m not a president or an almost president, and even though I handle my own money and I handled other people’s money when I was treasurer of our local city orchestra for a few years, when it comes to big, big money?   I hire some experts to keep an eye on that and do everything in a strictly honest and legal manner.

So to keep it short,    I’m not an expert.   I’m merely a citizen voter who ought to pay attention to what our Rulers are doing.

So how do the big guys stack up?

In one of the presidencies of our country, his 2008 political campaign’s mishandling of money led to a fine of $375,000 that had to be paid.   That’s “mismanagement” of monumental proportions.    That’s the largest punishment for an event like that.   The money amounted to about $2,000,000  of “other people’s money” that had gone astray.   That’s big!    Public trust was betrayed.
In the political life of an almost president, there were payoffs, pay-for-play payments received, and the commingling of funds from a slush fund self-identified as a “charitable” organization; and it seems presently unlikely that we’ll ever know the magnitude of financial laws that were broken in the attempt to become president, but it is surely well over $2,000,000.   There was the illegal use of “other people’s money” of  stupendous proportions.

In a third situation, also involving a president, consensual but immoral private acts were done and then after a bit of extortion the man used his private money to make a private payment to satisfy the extortion-like demands of the “partner.”   There was no involvement of “other people’s” money.   No public trust was betrayed.   And to all evidence, such immoral private behavior has been stopped for nine years. . . . and counting.
The man has since married a good woman and changed his political party.   The extortion-like behavior has gone unpunished.   (But President Trump changed into the “wrong” party,  right?)

no right turn

No “right turn”  permitted?

 

I don’t know about you, but I think I know who all ought to have the word “impeach” by their names.

TOTALITARIANSIM HAPPENS – OUR 11th HOUR

November 12, 2018

(A Veterans Day warning)

In my car, on Veterans Day:

CLOCK

 

banner flag wavy

 

Everyone knows that the immediate cause, the immediate spark, that set off WWI was the assassination of the archduke of Austria (and his wife).

wwi assass
Then things quickly spiraled out of control. What George Washington warned us about in his last address to the nation, “do not form entangling alliances with foreign powers,”  was not a part of European thinking, and so their entangling alliances drew them all into a terrible world war:

wwi entangling alliances

In the end, WWI was fought to oppose the control of various tyrannies from overtaking Europe. Leaders were in place who would have become part of that system. The “Huns” was the code word that symbolized the overwhelming force of totalitarianism that sought to expand into all of Europe.    Total world totalitarianism could happen.

 

wwwi halt the hun

 

“All Quiet on the Western Front” and other fine novels show us that not all ordinary Germans were “Huns” in that sense.   Patriotic, yes, but not barbarous totalitarians.

It was a most noble and crucial endeavor of Western Europe to oppose totalitarianism. The consequences of failure would be . . well,  they  would not be allowed to be discussed today.   We MUST know about this war.  We MUST read and learn . . . because totalitarianism happens.   It could have happened in Europe in 1914-1918.

One of the most informative sources of information is the World War One Memorial in Kansas City, MO.   All of you, if you live in the 48 contiguous states can go there – easily!! Practically everyone can just drive there in a couple of days!  It’s in Missouri, for goodness’ sake — right in the middle of our country.  Accessible from all around! *

wwi mem building

It is beautiful and well-done.

You can find the memorial at: https://  www  .theworldwar.org/ (Take out the spaces)     Go to “explore” in the top menu, the page called “Explore, ” and there will be many fine exhibitions to see.   They all do great honor to those who fought in WWI.

There is also an informative and concise interactive timeline.  I kept going back to this wall just to understand the exhibits better :

wwi chornology

https:// www  .theworldwar.org/explore/interactive-wwi-timeline
But I don’t want to make this a posting about the memorial, worthy as it is. I posted much about it last year when I was actually there.   (See “World War One Revisited – use search engine on this page  or:  https://thesprucetunnel.wordpress.com/2017/08/26/world-war-one-revisited/    )

I want to make a statement, and it is this:  the people who were alive just before, during, and after WWI were just like us. Same emotions, same issues, same concerns about family, education, jobs, and saving money for the future, even the same pleasures as the modern world was developing. Post-modern, actually, because the sinking of the Titanic was a major psychological shock that reverberated around the world — that was the end of the “modern” age of human expectations that shattered our trust that mankind is good and is able to create a modern utopia on earth.

wwwi scientists

We had trusted scientists  who brought us electricity and electronics,  elevators,  indoor lighting,   motorcars,  airplanes, space travel . . .  bombs of unimaginable energy . . .   and medical and food industries that  do as much harm as good.

That modern world ended.   It ended with the sinking of the Titanic and then with World War I which was, of course, the war fought “to end all wars.”    It didn’t.   And our regard for mankind was to be ever after pessimistic.    Justifiably so.

wwi bleakm world after

A bleak world after the Titanic

But pessimism and healthy doubts about ourselves need not have led to the self-loathing that we see so much of today in this post-post-modern era. That self-loathing and distrust comes from the Progressives**  of Marxist-Socialism because that ideology needs to convince us that we need a BIG State to control us; we cannot, as Americans showed the world, govern ourselves.

And when our self-confidence and our morale is weakened, we are prey to those who’d like to Rule us.

wwi name changing.jpg

Thus the path to Big Statism, to Big Brother, to an all-governing State which is another word for totalitarianism.   Big, powerful central governments do happen. Big unelected bureaucracies do form.

Totalitarianism does happen.

If we don’t trust ourselves to govern ourselves, with equality of everyone before the Law, we get the mess that American voters have in several states today, the best examples being Florida, Georgia, and Arizona.

wwi stalin vote counting

Voting officials in those states have shown us that some people are above the law.  They violate the voting laws of their own state — and because it’s expedient, they are allowed to go on with their fraudulent work.
Totalitarianism happens.

” It’s not who votes that matters, it’s who counts the votes” . . . we’ve all heard that. That’s how totalitarianism can happen.     Again:

wwi again vote counting

an apocryphal if not actual statement from Joseph Stalin

 

Honor the World War I veterans today?   Honor all our veterans who’ve fought in all our wars to maintain the freedoms that our Founding Fathers gave us?

wwi thank you poster.jpg

How?

Learn what WWI was all about.  Learn how the many faces of voting fraud is dishonoring those veterans.   Take up your “rifle” . . .   your voice . . .  join the “war”  against totalitarianism and fight back!

 

www vet day rememeer poster

Our soldiers risked their lives for the fight – and many, many gave their lives.   We need only risk our time and attention.

This just might be our Eleventh Hour.

FYI-2: A LITTLE HISTORY FROM THE DEVIL

October 31, 2018

“A little”  (history)  being the operative phrase.

Pumpkin Pals.jpg 370

It’s Halloween!   A perfect week to read or re-read The Screwtape Letters, the highly enjoyable allegory by CS Lewis.   Well, “enjoyable,” if it weren’t so true!

CS Lewis remains an important literary influence in the English language for those who are in the process of being educated; for those who don’t have to be persuaded of the importance of being educated.

(For that reason I won’t give a synopsis of The Screwtape Letters,  just one quotation.)

Quote:

(This is Screwtape talking, the demon educator who is instructing Wormwood on how to corrupt the education of humans.  That is,  we’re the ones being “Screwed.”)

“To regard the ancient writer as a possible source of knowledge  –  to anticipate what he said could modify your thoughts or behavior – that would be rejected as absolutely simple-minded.   And since we (devils) cannot corrupt   the whole of the human race all of time,  it is most important thus to cut every generation off from one another, for where learning makes a free commerce between the ages, there is always the danger that the characteristic errors of one may be corrected by the characteristic truths of another.”

Know that quotation well.     It is the whole reason our socialist education system prevents you from knowing (or respecting)  history.)      For corruption and evil to make headway,  you must cut off each generation from its own history — lest people learn from past mistakes!

When an entire culture is floundering around in ignorance and corruption,  it is easy to tell the members of that generation anything!

Don’t know what your Constitution says?    There is someone waiting to tell you what they want you to think it says!!

Don’t know the history of your own nation?   There are those who will tell you what your history is – and how evil your nation is . . .  and how all our heroes aren’t really heroes at all!!

Don’t know how to distinguish objective truth from opinion?   There are those who will tell you how to think and feel.

Don’t know where humans came from?   There are those who will describe human creatures that developed, by chance, out of the slimy muck,  with no more dignity than a common animal.

Don’t know the wisdom that comes from your parents, your grandparents,  the culture of your great-grandparents?   There are those who will tell you they don’t have anything to offer you and who will give you their own purposes in place of the wisdom of the past.

And so on.

________________________________________________

 

I’m not going to read Screwtape Letters tonight.  I’m going to read more of the book that presented that quotation:    Reasonable Pleasures  by  James V.   Schall,   highly recommended for all-around general understanding of our times.

I am going to do a different Halloween thing, though.

HILL

I’m going to watch The Haunting (of Hill House), (1963 version)  and then I going to watch the modern Netflix series version of it.    Just for comparison . . .  research, you know.

I’ll probably have the lights on all night long!

FYI: A LITTLE HISTORY FACT

October 31, 2018

Kitchen Mess.jpg 350

My kitchen floor is in pieces,  all rolled up and discarded;  I’m squeezing between the “storage disaster”  that has become my home, to use the keyboard of my disarranged computer,  just to make some comments — which, because I love my country (I love my nation;  call me a nationalist!) — because I love this nation,  I think are important   (the comments, that is).

Two days ago, I think,  I heard on the radio that the president is looking into some ways to end the anchor-baby  problem which is harming our country.  He said he was going to make a “directive”  to have some people, some experts see how this could be done.

(“Exploring how”  not “dictating.”)

The next time I heard the news,  he had either added a comment or else the “news” people decided to report more of what he had had to say.   The further comment was that he was being told by some of his advisers that he could just issue an executive order to eliminate the anchor-baby procedure.  He didn’t sound enthusiastic about the executive order method.

(It’s possible, but the Barack Hussein person in the White House so much overused the executive order,  changed the system with his orders, and exhibited such unhealthy glee in doing so — Remember his  “I have a pen and a cell phone and I know how to use them,”       Remember that statement?)

So that first day I didn’t know what method our current president would use to alleviate our anchor-baby-non-citizen-parent problem.

However!   Every time the “news” came on the radio,   there seems to be hysteria about this president using an executive order to “change the Constitution”  !!!   the debate rages — rages, I say —  about his use of the executive order and about the “difficulty”  of changing  the Constitution,  et cetera,  et cetera,  et cetera.

Now the 14th Amendment to the Constitution that the “news” people are discussing was put in there to allow the children of former slaves — in 1866 –  to be considered American citizens.   Their parents hadn’t been;  but after the  War Between the States,  they were — and their children could be.

Later the 14th Amendment was also applied to American Indians tribes,  or nations.  Children born of American Indians were to be considered American citizens.

The key phrase that applied to both instances was that the parents were not under any foreign jurisdiction.   Neither former slaves nor American Indians were under the jurisdiction if any foreign nation.

So babies born to them are American citizens.

Hope that’s clear.

The thousands of young men (and a few women and children)  who are coming this way:

on their way feed etc

.   .   .    .   these young men are citizens of foreign countries.  They are under the jurisdiction of a foreign nation.   Their babies do not become American citizens —   at least until socialist policies began to prevail in our judicial system.

That is the wrong that needs to be righted.   That is the intentional misinterpretation of the Constitution that needs to be corrected.

By some means.

We’ll see.

2 LITTLE GIRLS; 2 O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING

September 27, 2018

 

Two true stories:   Two Little Girls;  Two O’clock in the morning:

civil war stone

 

Imagine you are a child in school.   Think back to when you were a child  and remember how much you didn’t know yet, but school was a safe and friendly place to learn.

Two Little Girls

Two schoolgirls, actually;  maybe one elementary school, one middle school.   Every day when they go to school there are loud and profane demonstrators just outside their school, frightening them and their schoolmates.

Grown-Up Security people and their methods all accompanying their movements.

kav fam

The demonstrators are targeting the two little girls and their family.

Free speech and all that.    As used by the Leftist cultural-marxists ( socialists)  in  our country, financed in part  by an anti-American billionaire foreign citizen.

 

Two O’clock in the Morning

Not in our country (yet)  but in other well-known marxist countries there are the eyewitness, survivor accounts of those fearful footsteps and that dreaded Knock on the Door at Two O’clock in the Morning.     

Someone has accused you of something that the Leftists in your government do not like.   You now have to prove that you didn’t do it, but it’s hard because the accusation is vague and changing, becoming worse and worse each day, more lurid.    It’s hard because your accuser is on the side of the governing voices.

Even if you are returned home,  you – and your family – will  be under suspicion for the rest of your life.    In the case of Judge Kavanaugh, under threat of impeachment for the rest of his life.

The accusation proves his guilt.

The Innocent must prove his innocence.

 

Look again at our nation’s headstone:

civil war stone

The same political party which Carpetbagged the South,  began anti-Black, anti-Catholic, anti-foreigner movements such as the KKK, and who resisted with all their might the civil rights efforts of the 1950s,   that same political party is trying to win the upper hand by starting movements, societies, and actions against their political opponents.

race mixing

 Democrats against integration in the South

Today, their targets can be the two little girls,  anyone not of their own kind who runs for political office, anyone who gives an opinion not accepted by the Left, as promulgated by the main entertainment-news media.

They want to tear down the Rule of Law and equal protection before the law and civility in politics, because Civil War is the first step to their Revolution.

While future accusations and arrests won’t come at 2:00 A.M. necessarily,  dossiers are being compiled on each of us who have ever used or encountered the large Leftist-led institutions that we know so well by name.   Dossiers,  or databases, as they are called now.      Why are there so many lists and categories?

Everything we do creates a profile of us.

Harmless, so far.

True stories:   Two frightened little girls; two and more accusation which alone “prove”  the guilt of a man.  

When one side in a Civil War doesn’t fight back hard enough, it becomes a Revolution.

Can you imagine a movie about America’s great scientific achievement which evidenced the ingenuity, intelligence,  patriotism, and positive contributions to all mankind —  but made without reference to America and taking out one of the iconic, inspiring events, that of the planting of the U.S. flag on the moon?  

I think it’s called “First Man.”    

Anti-American by omission.

A subtle way of diminishing your enemy in a Civil War.

30 ATTORNEYS ON YOUR SIDE

September 22, 2018

(You know . . .   You know . . .   You know . . . )

The young social activist, anti-Trump,  socialist-tool,   drunken -teenager, so sexually active that she had to try to delete her  high school yearbook entries,   troubled woman with a fuzzy memory  . . .

You know whom I’m talking about.    A “doctor of education”   what’s her name, “ford” now accusing a man of unreproachable personal life and proven respected professional life,   active participant in various charities and in his community, promoting positive values among children  . . .    You know whom I’m talking about.  Kavanaugh

It’s the latest soap opera/titillating sex story that the entertainment-news media is obsessing about.

Pretty, huh?  —

Blasey

Even though a university hired her,   they don’t give her that much money to afford the more than two dozen attorneys that are advancing her agenda.

Or is it her agenda?

Follow the money.  Or in this case,  trace the money back to its source — the same source that so many-anti-American, anti-American president movements have:

The source is someone who was once a young Jewish boy in the 1940s who was arrested by the Nazis along with his family and friends and neighborhood in Eastern Europe.  A young Jewish boy who saved his own skin by collaborating with the Nazis,   helping them to identify other Jews . . .  who were then arrested.

Evil is richly rewarded in an evil world.

Today he is a Global-Socialist billionaire,  spreading Marxist principles all over the West, and often in America.  He’s “behind the scenes.”   The “spreading’ is done with the money he gives to any cause which will bring down American values, and ultimately the American government.

You know,  the antifa-types,  the pink knitted hat women,  the hired rioters against any conservative speaker.

gs looking down

 

I wrote here before about the many millions of US dollars he is giving this year to the campaigns of state attorneys-general.   You know,  putting his people in power at our local levels.   (And we’re not paying attention.)

 

Soros Face

 

No,  christine blasey-ford   doesn’t have enough money to pay so many attorneys.    So many, and increasingly many more,  are tracing these payments back to George Soros.    (Disclaimer:  this is what many people  believe after numerous reports.)

He is anti-American and he actively, financially supports all the anti-American movements,  hiring scads of “young people”   — mostly white-privileged young university trained young people —  to work in protests, demonstrations,  riots, etc.    Anything which will promote  Global Socialism and bring down our own American president and erode our Constitutional freedoms.

The U.S.  Constitution — the biggest roadblock against the Global-Socialist agenda.

BRIEFLY – COMMUTATIVE JUSTICE

September 1, 2018

Here’s how it works:

Justice =  Giving to the other what is his due.*

When the issue of justice is between people, person to person,  it’s called  commutative justice (and not distributive justice or legal justice).    Although you would think setting up a mandated social welfare state, as in Socialism,   would come under distributive justice because you seem to be “distributing” wealth,  it does not.   The State has stepped into and stepped on the rights of individual people and crossed the boundary into commutative justice.

The right to own property,  including  the right to manage and make decisions about one’s own property,  the right to pursue one’s own happiness (fulfillment), these are some of the inalienable rights of human beings.

The State cannot  alienate these rights from the individual (American) citizen.

Hubbie worked hard for a living.   The State has no right to step in and take more than necessary (under distributive justice),  just for the purpose of creating a generations-long dependent class of takers of his wages and the wages of others.      This is an unsustainable economic system because it is fundamentally unjust..

Bottom line:  Society falls without justice.

Socialism cannot be dissolved without justice.

Our children need to know the various concepts of justice so that they can think clearly and make good decisions about governing themselves and others.   We don’t teach the concept of justice anymore to our children.      We haven’t for a long time.   Today’s teachers   probably no longer understand these concepts.   And the idea of educating children, faint though it is,  is not the purpose of all the Departments of Education in Western countries. **

It will take massive upheaval, massive resistance,  massive re-ordering of our education goals in order to begin teaching our children the necessary things.

That’s why I put the currently entrenched Socialism in the category of Unsolvable.

UNSOLVABLE PROBLEM #4 – STEALING

August 31, 2018

vote ag socialism

If the throttling is done slowly enough,  over a generation or two,  it doesn’t feel too bad.

________________________________________________

In fact,  Socialism feels nice at first.   In state-sponsored Socialism,  leaders tell you everything will be more “fair”  for everyone.    But the fairness has to be achieved by breaking the Seventh Commandment:  Thou shalt not steal.

Socialism is an invitation for you to steal from others.

Wisdom from   Christianity, as recorded in the Bible:  “If anyone is not willing to work,  let him not eat.”    (II Thes.  3:10)

This has nothing to do with Christian charity which has been massive and unprecedented in world history.    That continues.     This has to do with that brilliant  disrupter of human society:   “From each according to his ability’  to each according to his need.”

The first phrase gives authority to politicians  – (who achieve power by democratic means)  – to steal from those who work – and work hard to make a good living. The second phrase gives confused and gullible people the reason to allow their government to steal from them and distribute the money to whomever will vote for them and keep this system going.

Unless we remove this system of unfair theft from productive people,  the problems that come with Socialism will prove to be Unsolvable.

Harsh word, that word “steal.”

And there are people in need.

But too many of our own citizens are living off the work of others.   And now too many citizens of foreign countries are receiving our wages too.    In a recent poll, the admittedly ill-informed,  miseducated Millennials are increasingly in favor of Socialism  — who wants to give up free stuff?!       And they don’t want to hear any other political theory:

Socialism Millennials

Once Socialism is in place it must be kept there by increasingly totalitarian force;  more and more laws and regulations,  draconian punishments,   and physical force.   Frequently, the  Socialist states eventually come down to:

THIS IS SOCIALISM 40

 

American voters who are sliding into Socialism truly believe that “it was never correctly implemented before.”   But they can do it right!      The opposition provided too many obstacles.    But they can successfully suppress the opposition.

The Program is to  Progress Forward towards World Socialism.

vote forward

“Forward Together”  !!

If people aren’t trained well enough to learn a skill to make a living,   then we must fix our system of schools.     If the economy isn’t working in favor of laborers,  then the economy must be fixed.    If crime and other moral issues cost society billions and billions of wasted dollars that never get to the people,  then moral training must be reinstated.   And so on. 

The answer to to unskilled workers, a failed economy,   to grown men who are unmotivated to provide for themselves and their families,  the answer to the high cost of crime — is not to steal from those who are doing the right thing.

For Pete’s sake!

Two things still stand in the way of Socialism’s final victory:    The Constitution of the United States (as originally intended);  and the principles of a Christian society.

These stand in the way of the Progressives,  but the Progressives don’t think they have to give up:

vote and keep calm

 

Saint Paul of the Bible spread the Gospel to us Gentiles.   Among his teachings is this:    But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.        (I Timothy 5:8)

Let us be motivated to help those in our society to achieve the dignity of productive work that can help a man support his own household!

Unless the desire for dignity of every human being and morality be restored, again, the problem remains Unsolvable.

 

 

 

BRIEFLY – FOLLOWING THE CODE

August 29, 2018

 

When you see this sight this week,  whether in a photo or in person —

FLAG half-mast

—  know that the entertainment-news media,  those actors and actors who read news scripts written for them by the Far Left,  have WON OVER  American law and tradition,  specifically the U.S. Flag Code.

The media have asserted  pressure and usurped authority,  and they believe the American people are influenced by them.

Remember that important book of warning called Animal Farm?   One of their “codes”  is that  “All (pigs)  are equal.  But some are more equal than others.”

(Important book.  You should read it.  Or read it again.)

In the U.S. flag code there is a regulation stating how long the flag over the White House should fly at half mast to honor a fallen Senator as well as a fallen Veteran.  It is a great honor to have the flag fly at half-mast for you –  for the amount of time designated for your station.

Senator McCain,   who has voted against the president’s causes,  breaking his own campaign promises to the people who elected him,  and who read and transmitted the false and scurrilous “dossier”  against the president, who has said some nasty things about the president  — this senator is . . .

               MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.

He gets a whole week of half-mast flag-flying.

A visual cue for the media to continue to glorify this senator* above all others.

Flag don't tread

.*      I do feel sorry for Senator McCain and for the torture he and countless others suffered at the hands of the Viet Cong, as well as the Japanese,  the Chinese,  and many countries, and today in the Middle East.

Compassion for all these men who had their lives, their bodies, and their mentalities injured and changed by horrible tortures.
