Don’t Rock The Woke Boat, Simple Simon Says

The condition of the country and world today, as it is not as we wish it to were, would normally be a great time for evangelizing. That seems like the way it always worked. We called them awakenings, revivals, or God moments.

People do need hope, faith that there is something bigger than the potpourri of devastation we see around us while the country disintegrates from that shiny city on a hill. All is not lost, God is still on His throne and nothing these people do will change that. He is in the capital Pronoun business. That is the message all right.

So if ever there was an appropriate time and need for a message, this would seem to be it. Except for one thing. Where are the people to spread it? I don’t mean just a few or handful of evangelicals telling the great salvation story. Don’t get me wrong, God can work in a few and look what disciples did once they got the hang of it.

But when I look at what many mainline churches are doing, I shake my head. No, this is not a critique of churches……. or is it? I’m not really sure, but the more I see the more I see at least some churches as part of the problem. That hurts me. It bothers me and it makes me feel uncomfortable about some fellow Christians and about the future. No, I don’t want to complain too much here. Wouldn’t be prudent, you know, or productive.

Then maybe that is what is needed? I mean every quadrant of society takes criticism from different sides these days. It is open season on the right folks or groups. Should churches be exempt from criticism? I know people probably don’t want to hear it. After all, churches are supposed to be part of the solution, and they often are, not the problem.

But the same age-old story you would get if you really broaden the scope to look at everything objectively (without inherent biases which seems harder and harder), then you cannot ignore the one stunning thing staring you in the face that does not go away.

That is, as bad as times are for culture and the rest in civil society, it screams to what is responsible for it. You have to admit if churches were doing a better job, then how could things be this bad? That would seem impossible if churches were very effective. So you must draw the conclusion that part of the blame is on the churches. Yes it is people themselves but the church is an organ of God that should stand up for and be doing something. No, this is not about church building for me. It is about being effective.

See if we all must take some of the blame for the way society is — or the country by extension — then churches cannot escape their share of blame either. I believe people are responsible for allowing much of this to happen. We can claim to be victims of it all but we allow it, even if we do not condone it outright. But churches are in that mix, too.

I know, it is an issue/story many people don’t want to hear, aren’t interested in, or don’t care about. I get that. But who can stand up for churches to defend them from blame? I don’t know who can make that case? Maybe I am doing the easy thing by throwing some criticism their way — rather than attempting to defend them.

Sure churches have missions and they do a lot of good. But that is not what I am talking about. When do we start, as people, taking responsibility for the society we live in? And where is the effort to change and fix it? Maybe this is all a cultural indictment and not about the individual. We like to hide behind the individual responsibility thing. But if things are the way they are, what does that say about us all as individuals?

I don’t mean this as a rant, just being serious because we know there are serious consequences to it all. We know that much. Just look at the way Democrats downplay or parse abortion. (most of those politicians) They claim they are personally not for abortions themselves, but they completely endorse having as many as society can provide, even demanding our government pay for it. Abortions on every corner, without limits. Does it make sense? There is a layer of excusing themselves in all that .

Like oh, I don’t personally rob banks or assault people but I will not stand in the way of anyone who does. “It’s their thing.” I don’t light fires, riot and burn down buildings when I am mad at government but I will not condemn the “love summer” of riots, political violence and crime. ‘It’s sometimes necessary.‘ So they stood there and watched cities burn and said nothing about it. They donated to the no bail or arrest cause for those that did it. ‘No, I don’t believe in it but I don’t believe in accountability for it either.’

Only a few classic examples. Where are the churches in all this? Or where are the churches when innocent people are being spied on or targeted for their religious and political beliefs, or for who they voted for? When forced to take a gov’t shot or pill or  else lose their job?  Oh, that’s where they would claim “but separation of church and state.” So we are to stand by to allow this weaponization against people of faith and do nothing?

It is a selective thing to churches as it is to the rest of society. They choose their fights when it is for ‘poor immigrants’ or downtrodden. When it is for standing up for illegals flooding the country through open borders, they are right there with their compassion buckets. But when it is our own citizens being discriminated against or attacked for their faith, they are silent. Show me a left-wing issue like climate change and they are on it.

How is it they can break barriers of a phony “separation” when they feel like it and it’s welcomed by society, too? But if churches stand up for people’s personal belief and faith, that is not acceptable to defend. We have become very accustomed where those lines are,  where they intersect and contradict each other. We accept it. What can we do about it?

So those ‘good’ folks can have charities, organizations, marches and fundraisers to help illegal aliens who broke the country’s laws to get here; but when it comes to those here that need help in hard times, they fall through the cracks. People who are not intentionally and knowingly breaking the law do not make the priority cut. Sorry, just not enough compassion in our tanks for that; but show some more love for illegals. Get with it.

Do you think churches deserve some of the blame for the way things are going? I’m really curious. I don’t see anyone who has made a great defense for the status quo. Am I being a little too hard on blaming Christians and churches? Maybe. But aren’t we supposed to be the salt, not the wine-chaser for everything the world concocts?

Could it be that some of these churches are doing this selective advocacy (I’ll call it) for a reason? Maybe it’s  to keep the finger of blame from pointing at them, by pandering to the world and the woke in one stroke? Just a question. That’s all and I fear that is enough.

 

In Critical Defense:

Someone may say I just want to politicize churches in general, because that’s what liberals always do and say. No, churches have already politicized themselves more than anyone cares to admit. It’s been done. They also follow the lead of some corporations.

And I never said all churches but I don’t have a number. True, some aren’t in that camp.

But for other mainline ones, they advocate political issues much the way some corporations have. So they gladly take positions on gun control, climate change, critical race theory, revising history, BLM, abortion, biological debates, border control, illegal immigration, LGBTQ advocacy, demonstrations, civil disobedience resistance, on crime, police and bail defunding issues, social justice activism, even some union policies.

They also incentivize illegal immigration through their advocacy.
Why does that almost feel sort of like Luther with a list of Theses?

That is to say basically all the hot button issues or controversial ones you commonly hear about. Green and environmental as well, And many of those in official capacities, in missions or raising money. They participate in marches, protests and sometimes have political leaders speak on them. All those are highly politicized issues. So yeah, they’ve become political. But no one points out those contradictions. Strange about that.

(So keep the pews warm… and I’ll leave a light on for you).

Joe’s 15 Minutes of Fame and Pain

With half the collective cognitive ability of an anthill, Joe Biden takes to the South Lawn for a pre-planned rally to celebrate inflation, while the market was tanking in real time – going south faster than Joe. It dropped 1200 points by the time he spoke.

‘Titanic move over, I’ve got a better band,’
It was better than an ice cream festival, for Lyin’ Biden.

After all, Joey didn’t have to explain anything. He had famous singer, songwriter James Taylor to do the interpretive messaging for him. Biden wanted to hear that favorite song, fire and rain. “I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain. I’ve seen sunny days I thought would never end…” Except that it is a song about suicide, pain and addiction.

I know, with the lyrics fire and rain, Joe was thinking climate change and to change the message from the creeping inflation. But Biden’s economy is lying in pieces on the ground, with our “sweet dreams” and lives hanging in the balance.

So I took the liberty to rework the lyrics a little — aka Corny Pop style.

I seen anger and I seen pain,
I seen James try to put us in shame.

And I hope to never see that again,
From my rooftop or my poop-drop.

But our time may be at hand,
If we don’t oppose their plans and take a stand.

“Lord knows when the cold wind blows it’ll turn your head around.”

 

This reminds me that those valiant musicians are always my go to sources for politics and influence, or as the left believes. Them and celebrities have the best political advice.

‘Cause I know damn well musicians got their finger right on the pulse of the people and  important problems in America. Maybe I’ll write a song about that. Cheers to those preening, musical Nostradumasses! Hats off to you.

Call Them Crazy

Just to show you how weird things got now, yesterday I looked on Twitter to find Adam and Steve were trending. You can imagine what that was all about. No longer Adam and Eve, it’s Adam and Steve now. Sadly, it is just one more absurdity.

Last week I heard the LGBTQRST community loves dinosaurs so much they think dinosaurs belong to them, for some uncanny reason. I’m thinking of Jurassic Park in different way. What is it with these people, why do they have to steal everything?

LGBTQs appropriated the rainbow to symbolize their sexual identity groups. Any other meaning is officially abolished. And dinosaurs belong to them, too. Why do they need to possess everything they like? It seems like some kind of obsessive compulsive disorder.

That would be akin to someone walking through a beautiful garden and stealing a bunch of flowers saying, “they are mine now.” Then merrily skipping home with their loot.

But Adam and Steve? That’s creative. Can anyone tell me which one took the first bite out of the apple? I’m dying to know. Adam’s ribs created Steve? How wonderful, for what may I ask? Now I’m curious where that story leads?

Not to be outdone, Al Gore comes out to compare “climate change deniers” to cops in Uvalde, who stood there for over an hour instead of engaging the shooter. I really think the guy has his analogies mixed up.

Maybe he and the rest of his authoritarian leftists ought to stop trying to hold us hostage to their emotional climate schemes. The guy needs his own electric grid just for himself.

But really he’s like a squirrel with one nut lodged in his mouth and another stuck in his ass. Who did Al Gore ever save from anything?

What needs to be engaged is people like Gore trying to bamboozle society on the basis of some religious fanaticism. He said it should not be political? The left hyper-politicized it and built golden idols to it. Now they want us to acknowledge it (climate) as a god. And if you don’t agree with them, they will burn you at the stake — metaphorically of course, at least for now. They just can’t leave people alone.

Then the denizen of crazy in California, Gavin Newsom, decided to walk on the political waters by running an ad to attack Florida and Gov DeSantis. So he attacks him on freedom and education. The crackdown governor must have got a hold of Hunter’s crack pipe. He says, come to California to enjoy liberty. (even as people are fleeing Cali) He gets a WH award for innovation in education. Self-serving hat tip from teachers’ unions.

But that is the idea to reframe everything as if they are the one’s trying to save freedom. Right on cue, Democrats are now the ones defending and supporting police. Yeah, right. They are also the ones fighting crime, too. Where do they get such nonsense?

Dems just make it up and hope people will believe it and forget the 550 riots in 2020, while they literally stood there and did nothing as buildings burned, police stations were attacked and cops murdered. All for some narrative everyone knows is a lie. Democrats donated to Marxist thugs’ bail fund, and our VP said they should never stop.

Democrats supported these commie thugs. And now they stand back and defend rogue DA’s  across the country that are destroying communities from inside out and top down. But Democrats are anti-crime, don’t you know?

Oh and Dems also supported the abolish the cops movement, which they rebranded as defunding police to make it more palatable. Of course now they deny supporting that movement. They are all about funding police now…. or so they say. When is enough with all this bullshit craziness?

But remember education was such a catastrophe in the pandemic with all the teachers’ unions supporting lock-downs and shutdowns of our public schools. That went well. You know Biden was fully behind that because, as he says, he sleeps with the teachers’ unions.

Just look at education now. The state of education today only tells us what the education of the State really is. That education says it is for public safety to shutdown schools or lock-down society. It’s for the good!

I’ve pretty much had it with Leftist radicals calling us the crazies. It’s not working. Makes our isle of common sense into paradise.

So look out for swaggering Libtards: worse than zombies, more dangerous than vampires. They appear out of nowhere because that’s where they belong.

Biden Doctrine Of Open Stupidity

A Biden doctrine emerged from smoldering ashes of public unity. It is to “do something wrong.” No matter what the issue or problem, the answer is just do something wrong.

Everywhere it is clear: open borders, war on energy to inflict pain on the people, undermine national security, poison the economy with every harmful action, to military, gun control, or their Ministry of Disinformation. Then complain about racism and inequity everywhere, while creating it in everything with their agenda.

Flashback to Obama-Biden years, their doctrine was don’t do stupid shit. But unlike what it said, it did not mean that they were not doing dumb stuff. It was only meant to provide an assumption that they were not doing stupid shit intentionally. It was a cover doctrine so you could not possibly think they intended to do something stupid. You get the idea.

But now the mask is off. That was a negative rule to not do something. Now we have a positive rule to actually do something wrong, knowing full well it is wrong and will have negative consequences. Except sell it as the right thing to do, or the only valid option.

Before, they wanted the perception of trying to avoid negative consequences, even though we caught on soon after Obama began. Those days are gone and today they are all about inviting bad consequences as a political agenda, with no apologies. They freely admit it, telling us it is necessary for the big-green transition — which is inherently wrong.

When the consequences do come, then just deny those were their goals. But the policies as they inflict them on us are very intentional. Deny the consequences until you can’t.

Never mind sending in the clowns, just “let Joe be Joe” and make him the clown.
The commander of nothing,” as Newt calls him.

Politicizing Petroleum Policy

The Putin Russia invasion of Ukraine has exposed the tender underbelly where oil intersects public policy and where war intersects climate. But the Left simply forgets that oil and energy is a national security issue.

It is fruitless to even talk about hypocrisy anymore. But in the hearings with the big oil companies, it has gone further than just hypocrisy. Democrats want it both ways. They want immediate increased production but they make no bones they want to cut the oil market completely. Last year, they wanted massive cuts in oil and fossil fuel production. All to appease their radical left, climatology political agenda. 

Democrats don’t want to cut production, they want to eliminate it. Wipe it forever off the face of the earth. So while they cry now demanding more, they actually want zero.

But consumers know the basic fact very well of a market relying on supply and demand. They know that ultra high prices require more production to alleviate those high costs. Prices may appear out of control but the industry is increasingly more controlled by government and radical politicians.

The Democrats don’t mind begging from unfriendly dictators who don’t like us much. Actually, they gave them all that leverage over us for free.

The problem is there are environmental impacts of so-called renewables. They require minerals, mining and indeed have an affect on environment. Calling them “clean renewables” is an oxymoron. Plastics are another example of endless oil products. How many plastics are incorporated into their green-dream products? And you will have the same hoarding potential and environmental difficulties in ramping up renewable markets. We already see it around the world. The same departments that control and obfuscate the oil sector will plague the renewable sector. Government control does that.

For years, people railed against a government command economy — not to be confused with supply and demand markets –for exactly that reason. It sort of takes market problems out of the equation.

At one time maybe Democrats only lusted for full control of the oil industry, the way Putin controls it in Russia. Now they simply want to eliminate it altogether. Once upon a time we called it a war on coal, then it became a war on fossil fuels and evolved into a full-blown war on energy. They claimed that was not so, but now they  boast about a war against all fossil fuel energy.

Democrats talk out of both sides of their mouths; they want it both ways.

I listened to the hearings just to come away with one conclusion. If Democrats wanted to be lobbyists against big oil — for renewables — they could do that. But they are elected to Congress to represent the interests of the country. And if Joe Biden wanted to be a union organizer, like Obama, he could have been one. But that is not the job of the president.

Things that have made this country run and improved our lives for years, creating millions of jobs, are now preferred targets of society. They simply have no respect for how we got here. In fact, there is an effort to erase the entire roadmap. Well, there is always satire.

Paul Revere’s Ride

“Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five:
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow – 1807-1882

But when Paul Revere rode out to alarm fellow countrymen, his horse emitted large amounts of waste in the process. Shouldn’t we factor in the age of the horse, with how much gas and waste it produced over its lifetime? Or how many people – white, black or Native Americans — who were negatively affected by these equestrian contributions? Must not we calibrate all those numbers into a new formula? Surely, based on a quick summary, we could see that the horse negatively impacted the environment, and humans, more than it benefited us all.

So it is long past time to take some retributive actions against these equestrian terrorists of the environment. Sure, the horse might have  made Paul Revere’s trip possible but at what calamitous cost to the earth? If we only knew or realized then what we now know , we could have prevented all that pain.

Paul — the meddling silversmith and industrialist he was — did not need to make his dumb trip for starters. And that asinine horse did not need to contribute to the “equitable” decay of our environment and climate, even for generations to come. This we can see clearly now because we have been awakened to the accumulative catastrophe of our deeds. 

We did all that. Why the hell were horses not taxed for their environmental impact? No, instead we encouraged their use. This only compounded the problems. So based on any summary analysis on the subject, I can therefore say the entire horse industry contributed to the decline in our climate. That’s just a fact. Anything we can do to eliminate it, and nip the damage in the tail, would only benefit our clean American future.

Revere should have relaxed, stayed home, euthanized the damn horse, and saved us all from our current fate. What a selfish bastard he turned out to be. Well, at least they could have increased the cost of horses to an unaffordable level so no idiot would have a chance to consider such a stunt, or misguided trip. ~~ Not so satirical end.


However, even more egregious with oil, they don’t want to just eliminate the industry, they want to politicize the entire industry. We’ve seen this in every government agency. Now they want to do the same thing to virtually every company, especially big oil.

How that shakes out is demonstrated in the hearings themselves. Democrats bring CEOs in to rip them apart and demand they do this or that. So it automatically pairs Republicans with oil companies. After all, we are the only ones who believe they should exist.

Democrats have accused the oil companies of manipulating the market prices and profiteering, taking advantage of crises and current events. Democrats’ answer to those charges and high prices is to release the SPRO to manipulate market prices.

The other obvious conclusion is this shows why we do not ever want government in complete control of our energy, or companies who provide it. One day they want to cut supply and the next they want it increased, based primarily on their political objectives. That’s the way they run everything else they control, immigration for instance.

So then, what would it take to get rid of exorbitant high fuel prices? Get rid of half of Congress that has a fatwa against the industry. Then replace a radicalized president who cares more about his family’s lucrative income than America’s national security.

Sustainability Meets Its Match

Don’t you worry; the eviro-green people are busy thinking of new ways to use our bountiful resources in ever-sustainable ways. Out of the box.

Take this novel idea: someone took salmon sperm and mixed it with vegetable oil to create a gel-like substance that can be formed into all kinds of things.

It then hardens to become like a plastic. So they fancy all kinds of things it could be made into. One of the first items they created with it was a cup. Neat, uh?

They said that, unlike plastic, one bonus was its ability to be recycled since it is water-soluble. So adding water will turn it right back into gel. So much for the cup, eh?

But don’t worry because they go on to expound that for this reason it would have to be used on things that need to be kept dry like in electronic equipment or packaging. Okay.

Yeah, I bet some heads will explode over at the UL – Underwriters Laboratory. They are going to just love this great idea. But read it in Euronews Green.

Just search: ‘Sperm used to create eco-friendly alternative to plastic.’ — How many articles could there be matching that criteria?

I’m sure people can think of all kinds of creative uses for this innovative substance.

Maybe we could make shower chairs for the elderly with it? Sky is the limit. Okay, boats are  probably out. I wonder how those salmon feel about this definition of sustainability?

Plan A Rolling Into AA Nonstop

The Democrats plan is unfolding as of this minute, and the plot is becoming very clear to anyone following the script. As obvious as the clock is on the wall.

That is to ride out their authoritarian control over us, government and the economy using the rubric of COVID but then, when it fizzles out, to shift the same control (now expertise) over the country under another banner – think Climate Change and illegal invasion or any other suitable, created, self imposed crisis or cause du jour.

You don’t have to think hard on that one anymore, they made it clear: COVID is only a dress rehearsal. They always build on their failures. My guess is it will be bigger and more disastrous than even a pandemic was. Maybe a dual or trifecta purpose and cause celeb? So, in fact, this was only a trail run. Get ready for the “ripper and gripper” sequel.

Now that they got people conditioned and accustomed to hunkering down to make every personal sacrifice possible, even families, what is not possible to do to the country next?

Something Wicked this way comes.

But there can be no pause in between to allow return to some semblance of normalcy because there is no more normalcy. It is gone. That has already been demolished.

But sure, even in that scenario, there will still be some winners and losers. The power elite and political brokers will decide who those are too. Together with their new election schemes they see no limits. Why should they? Is there anyone there – or legal controlling authority — to stop or prevent them. They think not.

We aren’t just dealing with the loony Left and political power anymore; we are dealing with a cocktail of evil. Let’s dispel their major notion. science in not a significant factor in any of this. (it hasn’t been) Power and politics are everything. That defies science.

The only veto you have — maybe the only one you will ever get — is in not supporting the left in the midterms. People cried wolf before but now the wolf is telling us himself.

Oh, I don’t really want to believe what I just wrote but the rocks are crying out.

People’s Pipeline

When Biden says jobs….
the interpretation is Jo BS

Hey Joe, how many Jobs did you kill today?
Day six …

They should have named the Keystone XL Pipeline the People’s Pipeline because it was the pipeline to our future. It was an economic, community win. Who’s looking out for them?

Immediate job loss from day one.

So by rail it will be transported. And who is a big investor in rail? Soros, cha-ching.

Dangerous?

And Biden’s administration is looking at FEMA’s budget and wants to re-purpose up to 10 billion for Climate projects. America, are you listening?

Comfortable Normalcy

Those who desire the comfort of normalcy have fooled themselves, and likely sold their hearts to slavery.

I think some Muckety-muck somewhere said that. Instead of worrying about the COVID virus, maybe we should start worrying about what Democrats have mutated into.

Mitt Romney put a tweet out days ago. See if you spot the devious flaw in it?

“Despite the differences Americans may have on matters of policy, we share the common goal of ensuring that America continues to be a beacon of hope and freedom for all.” — 10:01 AM · Jan 20, 2021

What pure gibberish. Beacon of hope — who cares about that? Freedom? The Democrats and Left don’t care about all that. It sounds nice but it is not true by any measure.

And there is nothing you can do to make these people care about our country. They only want to beat our heads over it as a useful tool. Other than as a weapon, it has no merit that America is an exceptional country. They compromised that away long ago.

Obama tried to drive the stake in the heart of that. Can we beat it idea into their heads? No, they have to willingly believe that. But it is obvious in everything they do.

They have lost any appreciation for America’s originalism and exceptionalism. Now they only want to be like everyone else. They prefer normalcy over exceptional.

So who in the hell is Romney kidding, and whom is he talking to?

In the first few days, O’Biden attacked and canceled out the 1776 Project. Why take issue with that? I think we know. Why stand against a pipeline now creating thousands of jobs and building the economy? I think we know. Why attach our progress in controlling the border by promising to open the borders? I think we know that too.

Why remove restrictions on foreign interference and equipment in our energy grid?

The National Pulse reported:

”President Biden has revoked a Trump-era executive order that sought to keep foreign countries and companies out of America’s bulk power systems – principally entities associated with the Chinese Communist Party – as part of his “Executive Order on Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis.”

“The executive order, which executes key tenets of President Biden’s climate change agenda, was released on the former Veep’s first day in office.” Read

Why would Biden do that?

Meanwhile, back at the Fed on December 7, they voted 6-0 to join forces with a scheming green Global cabal.

“Rather Than Focus on Helping the American Economy Prosper, The FED Joins Central Banks in ‘Greening’ the Financial Industry” — Gateway Pundit

“Now the FED is off on another insane journey which arguably has nothing to do with its mandate to the American people. The Hill reported on Dec. 15th:”

But you say, if these people had any appreciation for what America is, they have an awful strange way of showing it. Biden only has appreciation for what he can extort out of it,

As this continues, media is busy commending the brand new O’Biden administration for its return to normalcy. Dan Rather, after being exhumed from his dungeon as a defrocked journalist, says he is enjoying all the quiet comforts of it all.

“As I settle into a Saturday evening I breathe deeply, reflecting on how nice it feels to know that my sanity won’t be tied to the destructive whims of Mr. Twitchy Twitter Thumb.” — 8:59 PM · Jan 23, 2021

Dan, don’t let that security blanket bite you.

What is normal about cancelling restrictions on China and foreign interference with out power grid? Normalcy of open borders? Normalcy of opposing the 1776 Project? Take comfort in that normalcy. The normalcy of selling out America.

Oh, now they also attempt to impeach a president who is out of office.

But if you dare turn on the TV, you will be flooded with the verbiage about normalcy. Isn’t it great to be back in normal? So grab your Orwell and throw another log on the fire.

Ain’t Normalcy grand? I almost can’t wait to see where this normal train takes us next.

Poll Palooza

I said I am not a big fan on polls anymore. Wonder why? And there are many reasons for it. However, there might be one good use for them.

If you want to know how dumb some people are, or how many of them there are, just read a few polls. That exercise could give you a basic idea.

But funny how polls do not give me a similar idea on how many smart people there are? I remain pessimistic about that number.

Here is a little poll from Rasmussen and Heartland Institute on Climate Change – catastrophe or not?

“61% of Likely U.S. Voters consider it likely that climate change will be catastrophic for humans, plants and animals,”
“ (47%) believe climate change is caused primarily by human activity.”

https://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/partner_surveys/most_say_climate_change_catastrophe_likely_want_government_action

The good news: well at least they do not believe “climate change is the main reason wildfires are spreading.” Though you might have to convince most of the media on that.

Biden’s Plan of Doom

Case in point, Joe Biden’s latest tweet:

We need to meet the threat of climate change with the urgency it demands — and seize the opportunity to build back better. Tune in as I introduce members of my climate team who will get it done.”

Well, there you go. I only hope Pennsylvania is paying attention now.

So which word offends you more….. opportunity or seize?

I think we need to meet the threat of Joe Biden!

Settled Science

What is and isn’t settled science? Let’s dispel a couple of these popular faux arguments.

The science debate.

Take the left’s view: that there is no real debate here; that science rules; that it should be the basis of all actions. So science literally rules

Now that translates to science should dictate all decisions. For instance, on COVID or climate change, or anything else for that matter. It is the definitive answer to problems.

The logical side: no one is denying that science exists and it is useful. (that’s the defensive posture) When making decisions on society, many of those are out of the arena of science. Leaders and officials are making decisions on lockdowns and mandates on travel, or on what you can do and buy. What food you eat or car you drive. Is that science?

To say, like Joe Biden, that science declares you should shut down the economy, which is not an area of science, removes decisions from those tasked to make them. Plus “science”- whatever all it includes – is not accountable for those decisions and their consequences.

And people are elected or appointed to make those decisions on all the necessary variables. If it were true that science dictates, then there is no purpose for government or those officials but to enforce a science edict. Simply have science dictate decisions.

One of the first rules on any topic where science is injected is to ask if it is actually part of science or how much of it is? That tells you a lot. Most of it is far outside its realm.

For instance, much of this societal, cultural stuff we are lectured about is not an exact area of science. But that is where leftist social engineers come in. So their social engineers – presumably all leftists – will interpret their science into our society and lives, or into the code we must live by. When anyone resists their code, they hold up the science card. (just like they play the race card) But we are not governed by a board of science.

And if officials are going to issue these edicts, then they better be able to explain them and be accountable for them, because science won’t be. So it is not just science making these decisions, let’s be clear. Don’t hide behind science as if it were unquestionable.

The objective, the left tells us, is and always should be to control the pandemic. Except that controlling the pandemic equates to controlling people. That theorem means simply, you control the people and you control the pandemic.

Often when they tell us science is settled, they really mean their interpretation of science is settled. And it usually is not all science. Unless you mean political science.

World’s Worst Regime

China is now the undisputed worst regime in the world. Coronavirus only peeled away any arguments to the contrary. The world has been infected and changed by China.

On a personal note, I woke up this morning dreaming how bad things have gotten, seemingly turning everything upside down. Except it is not really a dream. What a difference 2 months have made. We also topped 50k dead in the same time.

If you want to do a simple experiment, try going to a funeral home website in one of the affected areas of the virus. You can look down a list of obituaries, which normally are filled with details about a person’s life, only to see death was related to COVID-19 – no services. It leaves a surreal knot in your throat.

How much has changed in America in a few short months? Well, the list is long from the economy to all the personal matters. Too long to list here. How big those changes are: from funerals to sporting events, schools, to shopping and having family gatherings.

Then last week the FBI Director, Chris Wray announced the major problem across the country is Coronavirus hate speech. Or people hating on the Chinese because of Covid-19. So that is a top priority for FBI to investigate? Of all the urgent priorities to take up, but he had to issue warning and guidance to all their FBI offices to be on the lookout for it.

We can compound that with the problem of getting out Coronavirus economic aid to people and small businesses. Look at the same old typical responses in Congress. Mass exodus, they went to ground but they still clung to those leftist ideological dreams over lives.

But let’s not lose sight of the forest for the trees. All this, hard as it is to remember, ties directly back to the original China cause of Coronavirus in the first place.

Then we have the whole political perspective problem. Congressman James Clyburn said that Coronavirus was a huge political opportunity. Corona Cuomo said we have to re-imagine our entire economy in reopening it. Re-imagine? Nancy Pelosi held out for weeks for her political agenda of the Left. The users and abusers surround us while we fight off a pandemic. Their rationalizations are absurd, yet we must fight the pandemic disease too. Note to Cuomo, there was nothing wrong with the economy pre-COVID-19.

AOC announced that when the economy does reopen, workers should all boycott it by refusing to go back to work in some sick act of political solidarity. How’s that help?

But in the end, we must remember and never forget the actual cause of this Panditrosity was entirely set off by China. The rest and even the political atrocity are all still symptoms of that whole. Do not lose sight of the origin of this pandemic, regardless of what Dir. Wray says. It was not caused by hate or the economy either. It was the other way around.

Andrew Cuomo said in a daily briefing that the new boutique industry in the US is now mask art. With that he smiles. Have we become a mask-wearing people?

So we have succumbed to wearing masks as a last resort to protect ourselves and others. For years we have seen this strange phenomena in Asian countries of wearing masks in public. We always assumed we don’t wear masks here in public. Well, now for ourselves and because of government guidelines, we are wearing masks. What a change.

Let’s hope the mask fad is temporary. But mask art?

Still that barely touches the surface on all the strange new things brought on by this. I will leave you with one extra thought. We may never know what would have been, we can only guess, but the year 2020 was shaping up to be something else entirely. COVID intervened. Whatever that was would have been better than a pandemic. We will never know. And there would have been 50 thousand more people alive to witness it. Thanks China!

Culture Caldron

Every so often one has to reflect and do a little culture check, the crazier things get.

Leave it to Trump, in one statement, to frame the entire issue in a campaign speech.

From a Des Moines, IA rally, Trump said something like “we are living in the greatest years now in history…. and I just got impeached. Can you believe it?” He got laughs and cheers. They got it.

Think about that analogy a minute. So finally, the economy is really on the upswing, opportunities and wages are up. There are a lot of good things happening.

At the very same time, you look what is happening around you and you can’t help wondering what has gone wrong? I mean the crazy things happening with the anger toward Trump and his supporters. People are desperate to take him down.

Government is running amuck in the Swamp fighting back. Deep state is in a fever pitch.

Yet there are plenty of good things on the horizon, life is good compared to the last ten years. Or it should be. What is with all the mixed signals aimed at us?

On one hand, things are finally improving that we’ve only hoped for over the years. But it is all dampened by this cultural turmoil over everything.

Then we’re told the world only has a few years left. Is it down to the countdown yet? Everything is rotten if you listen to these triggered, crazed people. So the secular world is telling us we are on the verge of apocalypse. Now that is rich, coming from that crowd.

Any joy you should feel is bombarded daily by this message of doom and gloom from Democrats and media. There is so much pent up hostility in them that you wonder if they are living in the same world you are, and seeing the same things?

It’s kind of like Trump, who wins the election only to have them try everything to throw him out. But he won’t go and neither will we. Why should we have to?

What’s wrong with this picture? It is a real dichotomy.

On one hand, there should be plenty to be happy about but the last thing they all want you to be is happy. They really try to make that a challenge.

It seems like Democrats’ job is to make mud pies out of all the good things or destroy them. And they have their hands full trying on that mission.

Here are you and I with everyone else, sitting smack in the middle of this whirlwind of discontent. Plus many of these dissatisfied people believe socialism is a panacea that will take all their worries away. Crazy.

If they can believe in some socialist utopia, then they need help. (not the kind they want)

They just seem to want to bring everyone else down to their misery. It looks like we are the ones who have to live and deal with it because it doesn’t seem to matter to them.

So in a crazy way, Trump is right. Life is great, they want to impeach him and throw him out. Ha ha, as if that would fix any of their problems!

Gender specific meets realism

I am having a hard time keeping up with culture these days. It could be just me, I’m not sure. I have finally realized that culture does change over time. I’ll give them that. How much it changes though, or should, is still up for debate in my view.

But the one thing that the evolutionists on the left always tell us is science is fact. And that is the way it is. Argue with that and they call you a denier. But if that is the case, then why do they keep trying to change science? I thought science was science.

Here is a simple example. Suppose you got into a time machine and went back to 1935. You walk into a senior science classroom to talk to them. Then you mention the words gender dysphoria and gender expansive. What do you think their reaction might be? No one would know what you are talking about or they could think you are joking.

Do that today and there might be one or two eye rolls but other than that everyone knows what you are talking about. “Oh, that.” They would probably get the drift pretty quick.

I decided since I am one of those people liberals always call a denier, phobic or neanderthal, then I should have an appropriate term for myself. I will label myself gender euphoric — which means I am very happy with gender the way it is, and have no inclinations to change it or the science behind it. I’m at peace with it and prefer people not try to redefine what is already defined. It should be settled science, as far as I’m concerned. .

But that would probably be exactly the wrong thing to be today because the left can accept any new definitions for sexuality, but they cannot accept or permit that one. Though in their way of defining it, a person’s final sex shall not be determined until they die. Then the evolution or chances of it are over.

Even in their way of thinking, my problem is not in keeping up with culture. No, they would label me a maladjusted adult due to my failure to adjust to their new definitions and standards. A cultural abomination. They can call it what they like and I’ll call it reality.

Turn For The Worst In Roman Church?

People who know me or have read my ramblings know I am not a big proponent for conspiracy theories. The more elaborate ones rampant in marginal politics anyway.

However, I’ll make an exception and go full conspiracy mode here in one case. And former Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, now present Pope Francis, is right smack in the middle of it.

Before I get too far down the path, I have to say I followed many of his statements. I see the lectures. Like everyone, I shake my head at the ridiculousness of Pope Francis.

If you are looking for a reference of other write ups then try this one from Townhall:
The Fool in the Vatican — It’s a good start.

After all that going on for years, I wonder what is behind it or if there is more to it? I conclude there is, but I am not sure exactly what. Let me offer a few ideas. Another disclaimer is necessary: as always, this is not a Pope bashing agenda. I would ask Jesuits to seriously question what is going on here? After all. it is their home field.

I don’t have to list all the controversial things he has said, which would seem to go against the Catholic precedent and doctrines. He has not been shy about making remarks that has him acting more like Obama than the Pope of the Catholic Church. No, then the reasons for this? And there could be many. I racked my brain trying to come up with some.

But Francis has to know he is turning off many of the “faithful”. Those are ardent, proud traditional Catholics. So what’s the deal: does he care, is he ignorant to it, or is he in denial about it? Is he aware he is stepping outside usual CC lines by venturing into controversial, politically charged areas? Why does he feel obligated to do it?

I could easily plead the ignorant case. I could also say he is in denial. But I won’t. I give the man credit for knowing what he is doing. But why?

I come to the conclusion he just doesn’t care if he is pissing off (or pissing on) a lot of that “faithful” flock. I believe he is well ware. So is he intentionally trying to be divisive? I do believe there is intent behind it. Is it a not so secret anti-Catholic agenda?

I think he has calculated that he doesn’t care about numbers. He really doesn’t care about orthodoxy either. I think, while it might be malicious. he has decided if many people balk and walk away in protest or disgust, so be it. I think he decided that the remnant left (a pun) would be better off thinning the ranks. If dissatisfied leave, it’s better for him. He obviously has no interest in either pandering to the disgruntled or appealing to them. In fact, he may be out to send them a strong message that they are not welcome.

If it comes to a point of choice between him and and them, it is them who are not welcome in the Church — not him or his leftist allies. And he has dug in on that note. Is it a full throated takeover of the CC? You might call it that.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always had my disagreements with the Roman Church, which is why I am a protestant evangelical. But, like Catholics, I look for reasons and explanation why he is doing this? No, I don’t believe it is really God’s call he is following. I think there are other voices, and it’s not divine revelation. In fact, I don’t see anything divinely inspired about it. It is secularism (humanism) he seems to follow. It’s equally divisive.

At any rate, he has already decided that alienating a whole lot of Catholics is justified. As I said, what will remain in who likes it is more important to him. Actually, it is the only thing that does matter to him. He is adhering to a worldview, not necessarily a Church-view. And the Church can take a hike.

What gives me the idea those dissatisfied are not welcome? Look at his statements. Time and again when he makes a wild statement on current policies of governments and says “you are not Christian” if you don’t agree. So if you don’t like open borders, you are not a Christian. Next, if you don’t like socialism, you are not a Christian. He always frames it in those terms. Basically, he is saying if you disagree with you are not a Christian and also a bigot. You are both. He marginalizes anyone who does not accept Leftist orthodoxy. (far left at that). Now we come to the genesis of it all.

Politics. He has determined politics is the act of the Church. He would rather see the Church playing politics than following God’s commands. And he is out to make the CC chief Church of Politics. That is because everything he is concerned or talking about is part of a politically-driven agenda. He is fine with that. In fact, he is endorsing it in what he is doing. He is telling you disagreement is not an option and you are not Christian if you disagree.

So if that Secular Humanism corrupts the Catholic Church, too bad. Celebrate it!

Now I made my case about it. What is yours?

Obama Factor, Live From Berlin

Talk about misinterpretation by media, now even Fox is doing it.

Obama goes to one of his favorite places, Berlin. Ah, time to lecture the Europeans on politics. And to talk trash about American politics.

He talked about division but in a partisan way. He complained some people turn it into a circular firing squad, as the Democrat primary heats up and expands. So he warns of inter-party fighting,

Then media, like Fox, falls for the easy bait and says Obama is sounding moderate now. They jump at the chance to agree with him. What was the event? It was his Obama Foundation doing a Townhall at Brandenburg Gate. From the Foundation:

(Mission) “Obama join[s] hundreds of emerging European leaders for a town hall conversation to discuss the future of Europe and the importance of leadership in creating lasting change across the region.”

Well, nothing overtly political about that, is there? No doubt about what he is doing.

The statement he made about a circular firing squad:

“One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States and maybe it’s true here as well, is a certain kind of rigidity. Where we say “ah ha, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be” and then we start, sometimes, creating what’s called a circular firing squad where you start shooting at your allies, because one is straying from purity on the issues. And when that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens.

So I think whether you are speaking a s a citizen or as a, you know, political leader, or an organizer, whether you are in a non-profit space, a civic space, or you are in the political arena; you have to recognize that the way we’ve structured democracy requires you to take into account people that don’t agree with you. And that, by definition, means that you are not going to get 100% of what you want. But you should take some time to think in your own mind and continually refine and reflect “what are my core principles” because the danger is if you don’t know what your principles are that’s when you compromise your principles away.

So you have to know ahead of time “here’s what I am willing to compromise on and here are the things that I’m not.” You can’t set up a system in which you don’t compromise on anything, but you also can’t operate in a system where you compromise on everything – everything is up for grabs. That requires a certain amount of internal, ah, reflection and deliberation.”

The only thing is theory does not overcome reality for Obama. He never was that compromiser. He was always a rigid my way or the highway person. He told McCain, the election is over, “I won.” He did not compromise on Affordable Care Act. He repeatedly lied about what was in it. His advice is not for himself. He’s such a hypocrite and phony. They would only eat that up in Europe, where he could get away with it.

Don’t buy the crap sandwich though. Obama’s only fear is that infighting of Democrats could weaken the party. Wait, that is not moderate when you think about it.

But we’ve seen that movie before. In past primaries, Democrats made a friendly arrangement deal between candidates not to attack each other. That’s how they operate, under normal circumstances. And likely what will happen this time. Look, Obama being objective or wise is hogwash.

Actually if they can ever get a chance, they love to stoke infighting on the right. They even find candidates on the right to do it. Obama is just worrying out loud that the Democrats might hurt themselves. But hey, we saw that even Hillary and Bernie could not bring themselves to attack each other. Obama does not sound moderate, and that is not his position to moderate. He just doesn’t want any infighting to start. In other words. let the hard left run rabid. Kow-tow to it rather than buck the hard left. How about Chuck and Nancy on the wall? Their objective is not to compromise.

That is the same message he is giving them on quasi-political operations. In fact, the effect of what he says is meant to weaken the other side. He knows the loudest radical voices get the attention and action because they drown out others – by design. They don’t want any other voice heard. You don’t compromise if you are the only voice in the room. Still Obama is embarking on a global political structure, much like the Soros machine. The other thing he is really selling here is incrementalism. Start something, no matter how flawed, that your opponents cannot get out of and then just keep piling on it. (he calls it building)

It is disguised as sounding moderate. And he knows full well the dangerous momentum of the socialist left. He must be ecstatic. He knows if anyone must stop the criticism it would be moderates speaking against that far left. It’s those moderates that should be forced to bite their tongues and not make waves.

This word salad only gives the appearance of moderation, when it is the opposite. He doesn’t want Democrats to rise up against the commie left.

You only have to look at who Obama backs to see which side he is on. He loves “Beto,” Robert Francis. He’ll do nothing to get in Bernie’s way either. He’s down with all the commie crap. And look, he organized a coup against Trump, so don’t think he is not strategically aligned with the hard left. He said it there, he does not want a weakened party or movement. Now does that sound moderate?

So Fox can prance around all it wants trying to paint Obama’s remarks as a voice of moderation. But that doesn’t work. We know who he is and so does the left. They also misrepresented the intended message. Does the context not matter of who he is talking to? They are still playing down the threat Obama poses, well into the future. I thought that crazy mantra was debunked by now.

Morality of the Beast

It’s a strange new world, and the religion of the left has taken center stage.

AOC lectures us about the morality of Climate Change, while they joyfully push for late-term abortion even infanticide as hard as they can. But we are the deniers?

Reality check! Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.
Politics of evil.

Climate Of Religion

What we have seen is the overt politicization, weaponization and religiosity of the climate, or climate change, and the propagandizing of it. It should be no surprise that they politicized it to the max. That’s why so many people are outraged. But that was only the first step. Then they weaponize the climate, against the people of course.

Then they use the climate as the apocalyptic fear-mongering vehicle

When even the former head of Green Peace has to go on Hannity and call out the apocalypse hysteria of the Left, we are in a strange place.

He actually said that if we do the fossil full elimination they are calling for, it would decimate civilization. Or maybe that is what they want? He also said that our coal fired consumption is about 90% cleaner than it was decades ago.

But he said that today we still rely on fossil fuels for 80% of our electricity. Apparently they didn’t realize that when they tell us they want to switch to electric cars. Imagine the reaction when they all plug them in.

But they are telling us something with these Big Green Plans. They show us it is a religious movement now, full stop. The former Green Peace guy said what they are doing in incorporating kids into their message is equal to child abuse. Well, it should be criminal. The same person also said that the direction they are taking it, including using children (and emotions), is just to push their radical socialism or social justice platform.

I guess they don’t realize that we see exactly what they are doing. They turned it into a political issue, weaponized it, then made it a religious one. And they now feel comfortable turning that weapon on anyone they need to propel their political agenda.

Wouldn’t you think using and scaring kids would be a bit over the top? Not for them. In fact, it is right up their alley. The same way they have been using kids in their socialized healthcare schemes. Just roll out the children. What’s next, having children lobby and protest for late term abortion rights? Don’t be surprised.

As I said some time ago: is there anything too radical and extreme even for Democrats? Not anymore. Remember Claire McKaskill let the dirty secret out of the bag in the campaign, before she lost? She said those are the crazy Democrats and she was not one of them. But now that the election is over and AOC has taken over the party, with an assist from Bernie Sanders, it looks like they are telling us loud and clear that really all Dems are crazy Democrats. That’s the way it works.

We used to hear them say on the campaign that they would not be a lockstep vote, and they were independent minded, and that they would represent the people. Remember Trump called them out at rallies and said if they get in, they will only be Pelosi puppets and vote in lockstep. Rubber stamps. Again, Trump was completely right. But it only took a few short weeks for that to happen and prove it.

Bottom line is these people are not at all about preventing a catastrophe, they are all about creating one. And the faster they get there, the better. Have kids believe that the world is going to incinerate. We used to hide under desks in schools, remember. Now just tell them it is over. So we might as well blow through a hundred trillion dollars trying because it’s a lost cause unless. Unless they can save planet earth from destruction. Well, I wonder what kept planet earth from destruction years ago before they came along? They sort of sound like a revised version of Heaven’s Gate people over the Hale-Bopp Comet.

It does show us something. That the climate change and socialists, besides getting in bed with each other, are reading from the same script. It is all about belief. It is only based on that. Throw in a few anecdotes and current events to make your case, then round up the kids and give them their lines. Send them out to the public and watch people get sucked in. Or so goes the plan. However, what it really is based on is belief.(echoes of Obama) Have enough people to believe it and you can even summon a Hale-Bopp comet to come and rescue them. And they are betting all their marbles, and our money, on it.

Weather Fruits at it again

Just how deceiving are the global warming climatologists? Well, take it from one of their propagandists at Accuweather.

Headline: “2018 officially ranks as the 4th hottest year on record for Earth

We all know how media uses sensational headlines. But this is beyond sensational.
Note the words “officially” and “for earth”- not for their records.

It is not until you read within the article that it actually says:

“The year 2018 followed the pattern of higher-than-average annual temperatures, as the Earth experienced its fourth hottest year on the 139-year record.”

Anyone has to admit that 139 years of record keeping is a pretty short blip on the earth limeline, even by Noah’s standards. Speaking of which, where were these people back in Noah’s day when he could have used a little weather forecast affirmation?

Anyway, here they are trying to send the powerful message that at no time in the earth’s history has there been a warmer year. Wow, 2018 must have been a real stoker!

And they sprinkle that message with agencies like NASA and NOAA to lend more “official” credibility to it. Heaven knows you are a denier if you don’t believe them, or if you are even skeptical. Then they call you a “science denier”…. when they only base their model on 139 years of records. Records that have been under some scrutiny.

See:

Climate experts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) independently released new data on the global temperatures for 2018 and the most important climate trends of the year on Wednesday, Feb. 6.

Is that also the same science I hear that refuses to call a baby in the womb a baby? Yet even in the Bible it says about Virgin Mary that she was with child, not a blob or a zygote.

Now who would you rather believe? They call that science?

I was waiting for the part that would blame Trump for it. That’s a joke but they were not.
