Good vs. Evil

In 2020, the age-old debate over good versus evil still rages on. Or should that be battle? But is there any way to score the current landscape?

To judge the levels of which is winning or losing, I have a simple test.

What is the amount or saturation level of evil in society? Start by asking a question: what is the cost of doing the right thing? The answer is a good indication of the level of evil.

Ideally it used to be doing the right thing because it was the right thing to do, was just the rule. It was appreciated or even praised. And that was it. But that has changed.

It can be more complex these days.

Now doing the right thing can have consequences. There can be penalties. Sometimes one pays a stiff price for doing the right thing. Not always. Well, it could even be a heavy price at times. If you think about it realistically, you can see those areas.

So I think that cost is directly relative to the amount of evil there is. Not to oversimplify it; I’m not saying that is a hard rule in all situations but in general.

You could take that to another level with the amount of good or evil in the public sector. Consider what Trump tried to do. Consider the amount of resistance, by Resisters, to give you an idea what I mean. There is certainly a lot of resistance..

Then look at the resistance or cost inflicted by Antifa or BLM protestors in riots or looting. It drives the cost of doing the right thing higher. Look at the ability of cops to prevent it.

Look at how many cops were murdered for just doing their job. So I think all that, and the tally of the cost, is a reasonable indicator to the saturation level of evil there.

Personal Encounter Of The Worst Kind

It may not be recommended to write in the first person, however, these days I find it increasingly harder to avoid it. See, when I am very bothered or troubled by things, my instinct is to personalize it.

Obviously, I am very concerned by the stream of what I see going on. One could not ignore it if one really tried to. That is part of the point I will get to in a minute.

The beginning of this is that we now have had three and a half years of a Trump presidency so it is time to state some of the revelations we have seen. I look at it sort of like a lessons learned confirmation of many suspicions that built up over the years.

But let me use this one example. Almost since 2016 we have heard these comparisons to Nixon. It was like a forgone conclusion the left was setting up about Trump. Not that bad, you say, it’s par for the course.

Though if we really compared it to Nixon we would realize that old phrase “the cover up is worse than the crime” would be shredded to pieces. That has always been the high-water mark to liberals. (I know the term liberal is questionable, but convenient) They always assert that no matter what the crime is, the coverup of it is much worse, more corruptive.

So in this case a direct comparison would show that, while there was a cover up under Nixon, it was limited to those in the ranks who were involved directly in it.

But what we have here in this country is a monstrous collusion between Government, nefarious Democrats — and their many activities — and the media or national press organ, all involved in the acts and the coverup. This is far bigger and worse than anything the Russians could even try to do to the US. It might be hyperbole to some but come along.

In Nixon’s case you were dealing with a ring of people. There were Deep Throat and reporters breaking the story to a shocked public. Okay, not to delve into details but this has been their analogy, not mine. Press broke through — but it couldn’t under Obama.

What is going on in this country today far surpasses anything called a scandal. In fact, calling it a scandal would be minimizing what was done.

Another pet pieve of mine is prestigious historians talking about this or that period. Actually, they wait for events to happen and then talk about them where one can make conclusions in connecting dots. All very interesting, as history is, but not so efficient in dealing with present reality. Though I am curios why or how we got here, too.

While events are happening, we don’t always know what the end result or effect of them will be. In effect, we are writing history without knowing how it ends. As they say, hindsight is 20/20. At this time, we have the benefit of witnessing all the events in real time. It is all terrible and we cannot say with confidence where it ends.

We now can see this giant ball of collusion is very damaging. We may not know the full effect yet. One of the contributing symptoms of it, forget the cause, is that the Democrats or progressives are more incorrigible than about anything I ever saw before.

For instance, when we have been saying for years that Democrats don’t care that is now an understatement. They really, truly don’t. When we have said the ends justify the means, it is so much bigger than that simple concept. The why of both of those are mind-blowing. (and we may not even know the entire why)

What we know that they know is an indictment on the Left. They know what is wrong, they pursue it anyway as a means. The media knows it should not ignore the truth and what is going on, but they do anyway. Government people know they should not be operating maliciously but they do anyway. The contributing corruption, then, between all the collaborating allies, is a monstrous cabal.

The sum total of what it is doing is even greater than all the parts combined. (I hope that makes sense) No, it is not an illusion or conspiracy theory of our making. It is actively happening right in front of our faces. Remember Adam Schiff claimed the proof of Trump’s collusion with Russia is in front of our noses? That was ironic projection there.

What they are doing, collaboratively, is much more caustic than anything we’ve witnessed before. We thought we had seen it all. We thought we knew what bad was. But now it has gotten to the stage that it operates right in front of us, teasing us that there is nothing we can do about it if it were exposed.

When you point out any of the wrong doings or patterns of corruption, they laugh at you as if you are hallucinating. But the thing is we know it and they know it. There cannot be any honest agreement about that admission though.

There is another new term some people are using now called “next level” stuff. I don’t have to define that. However, everything is so next level now there aren’t any words for it. Maybe I will think of some. Never mind that. This is ultra-next level.

From my point of view, I finally made a few determinations. First is that the Left doesn’t care. Caring is nowhere in the scene.

So they know all this is corrupt, from Benghazi to government abuse and obstruction; to rogue, personal servers concealing government operations; to surveillance of a candidate; to a full-blown coup orchestrated on an incoming president; to a blanket cover up of everything done before it. Who is complicit in all of this? That list is long.

No, it is not at all akin to Watergate or Nixon, or any past scandals. And the players involved are far more egregious and sinister than those. One could even say 40 percent of the country might be participating in one way or another. The percentage doesn’t matter.

If the entire base of the Democrat Party, and their various allies, are all corrupted then it is a big net. We don’t have to look far for examples based just on what they say.

For instance: the Supreme Court nomination. Chuck Schumer ran out threatening if Republicans pick a justice, next year everything would be on the table. Everything was on the table anyway. Nothing has been off the table to Democrats yet.

Look further down though. Trump picked the nominee and then social media erupted. Sure we knew it was coming. Yet it is always far worse. The leftist base – way past the Move On days — are telling Democrats to do anything possible to stop this. Use any means they have. Use every dirty trick or illegal maneuver to delay or block it. Use impeachment to try to stop it. Anything at all, short of warfare and some of them already advocate that.

You see how pernicious it all is? Right and wrong mean nothing, even remotely, even the Constitution means nothing. The gig is up. They really are unhinged but in the most dangerous way. They don’t care about anything. They don’t care if the country burns. They don’t care if it causes chaos or civil war.

But they do care about results and they demand them. In effect, it is a hostile takeover where the assailant values nothing the American people value. There is no common ground. Actually any type of criminal behavior that works to their benefit is demanded. They don’t need to make exceptions because there can be no exceptions.

This has always been the reason why you cannot negotiate with terrorists. They want to run over you, beat you into submission, cower you to their demands. This is the real coup, the one against Trump was only an appetizer. You could call it the coup of coups. One where there is no end to it.

Back on the track of cast of characters. the media plays a crucial role in all of it. They too do not care. It is not a simple matter that they chose to ignore all this stuff. They blatantly don’t care about it either. They are cognizant of the veracity but it doesn’t matter. Still the cover up, or the attempt at it, goes on.

But now we all know, confirmed over and over again, what has gone on. And it was confirmed even from their own ranks within the Deep State, within media or press, and by the Left. They don’t care that we know either and that is where war could begin.

Ordinarily, the main objective is to expose and reveal it. That is the starting point. The goalpost has shifted. It is out in the open now but the players cannot be coerced or forced to do the right thing. It has been so long. And so far there has been no power to force it.

No more pretenses. Lawlessness is the bomb.

This is the real dangerous spot. We now have lots of people who are willing to do anything, including breaking every law, to achieve their desires. (whatever crazy things those are) But this monstrosity is working its deviant, defiant, criminal will to achieve its ends. They have no scruples. And we see repeatedly that nothing is going to stop them.

We thought a coup was the end game. We thought a gigantic cover up was the wider plot. Yet it was always much bigger than we thought.

I would like to leave you with a bit of good news only I really have none. If I happen to think of or run across any, I will let you know.

Coming Attractions: Port-Amerika

For anyone listening: I am only a messenger, one voice, and I control nothing or no one. But there is one interesting message I have to pass along now.

Please put it in context that the Left has been at this for months, for years, and their rhetoric is always high. That in mind, this comes from collective Marxist organizers.

I don’t know that they can crank tensions up any higher but that is their idea.

Black Panther Disciples
BPDisciples — [Twitter]
REMEMBER:

#September1st is the first day of
#SuperStrikeSeptember:

Collision symbol
Largest organized #GeneralStrike in modern US history

Collision symbol
Begins the same day as the nationwide #MarchForJustice for #BreonnaTaylor

Collision symbol
Every city will implement the #PortlandPrototype protest model

 

(BPD)–On September 1st, 2020, the Black Lives Matter movement, in #solidarity with the US #LaborMovement, shall make history. Together, the People will rise up and seize the reins of power and production and finally set this nation on the right path. The plan is simple:

What we already knew, Portland is their protest model, their prototype. And they plan on pollenating that across America. I certainly hope the DOJ is watching it like the rest of us.

They boast this riot model of violence and urban terrorism has been sustained for over ninety days. So they plan on duplicating that success everywhere they can.

And there is definitely a solidarity with media and Democrat pols. What is left to the imagination? Now you know what to expect from Dems and media who amp it up.

Tomorrow’s Leaders

One of the things that always intrigued me was the idea of tomorrow’s leaders. I remained on the optimistic side until the early 2000’s. Then the pessimism began to outweigh the positive thoughts. You can read any reasons into that you like.

At least I tried to be optimistic that our future would be in decent hands. I don’t know that I can say that too much anymore. It’s sad. That’s not to say our leaders have been all that great or wonderful. But my hope was tomorrow’s leaders would reach new goals and highs, much like science and technology advances. (realizing not all advances are good)

One can hope future leaders improve and learn from past errors. Even void of history.

Of course those lessons are harder when no one talks about or acknowledges those past errors. Or if they refuse to admit there were errors. Without that, it seems to me, we cannot learn to not repeat them. Another way to look at it is: if we learn that those errors were positive and we need to do more of it not less, then we seem doomed to failure. But that could make some people happy.

Nowadays I have to apologize for not generally being positive. There just seem to be so many negatives staring me in the face. That is being realistic about it. I still feel the hope for the country and all, far as that is possible. But the leadership, to me, is very much in question. I suppose there can be no guarantees. Maybe I would like to see more signs of positivity for the long run?

It seemed like a big dose of positive for the future just getting Trump into office. He more than accomplished my basic desires. I can’t list them but a huge one was to break the monopoly and shake up the system enough to change status quo. That was a help. With that, as I assumed, we got all the attacks we should have expected. But it got much worse than I expected. Okay, so that is only confirmation of how badly it needed it. I get that.

Then came the official, organized resistance and all the rest. Again, predictable. Though at some point you evaluate if we have made headway in the long run. It is hard to see it. Then what happens if and when we let up even for a second? You know. That is also why I am convinced in seeing it as evil. And it spreads.

I sure would like to feel more optimistic for the future in good hands. But I’m seeing that glass as half empty and that is not enough to repel the enemy within. Is it a matter of training? I don’t know. Maybe I am looking at it only from my small perspective.

In the end, I do have faith that God is in charge and He will see us through. But that does not prevent bad things from happening to us. We can cause problems. Technology improvements themselves can cause problems, too. It is not all good.

When it comes to leaders though, I sigh and ask ‘will these new ones have to learn things all over again?’ Does the whole sequence have to repeat itself? Can’t we build on what we know and not on what we don’t know? I ask those questions in confidence because I don’t always like the answers I get. What about cynicism, is that fashionable now?

That is just touching the surface and I could litter this with examples. But at this point, I don’t think they are necessary. One more question for the road. Maybe we never really took on the communist threat the way we should have – or seriously enough?

Keep On

What do we do? We should continue to pray for our country, the people, and ourselves. Pray we overcome this evil mist hovering across our country.It cannot defeat us.

Other than that, elections will still come on November 3rd and we need to vote. But now with what states have done in mail-in voting, and Dems’ other antics, we should realize it will be weeks before we know a final result on the election. You can expect delay.

I’m hearing, thinking and figuring it will take at least a month to count votes. I don’t see how to avoid that scenario. It should make Bush vs. Gore look like child’s play.

I get a reminder every time I look at my mail. There are no postmark dates anymore. Well, what does that tell us?

Keep on….. but knees are for praying.

Malicious Intent Of Radicals

I will try to make this brief to the important point. There has been a lot of radical activity lately, what with protests, counter protests, antifa, rioting, doxxing, violence and the like. Most of it carries a pernicious theme. It is almost too much to take in at once.

However, we have some typical reactions to it, along with desensitizing ourselves to it all. We have mob behavior and then we have the reactions to it from Democrats. Enough has been said about Democrats sympathies toward Marxist radicals. They just can’t help themselves from aligning with radicals’ goals and agenda. You know birds of the feather.

But something else comes through, best exemplified in a recent comment from Judge Jeanine on her show. She was talking about all this and referred to the elected officials in Seattle saying “what are you stupid?” It would be easier if we could write all this off as Democrats’ stupidity in how they respond to lawless radical activity of the Left.

We can no longer afford to be that naïve to call them stupid. In many or most cases, they do know what they are doing. And often they have reasons for it . Those reasons are malicious in themselves. Democrats come out of the same radicalism that spawns these protests and riots. Civil disobedience is only a means. But it is way past “civil disobedience.” It is lawlessness.

Now contrast that all with what we see happening on a daily basis. Often the elected and Democrats appear to operate in concert with the thugs – or at least do things to encourage, enable or sympathize with them. This is not by accident.

See the problem is we want to attribute what officials do as being stupid. What if it isn’t? What if it all is intentional? Now that is the only way the whole thing makes sense. In other words, if they know exactly what they are doing. If so, then officials operate collaboratively. Why should we ignore the obvious or pretend otherwise? Because we don’t want to admit the real malicious intent behind what these elected officials are doing. But haven’t we seen enough to have our worst fears validated? I think we have.

Dan Bongino began posing such a question about the mayor of NYC, Bill De Blasio. (real name Warren Wilhelm Jr.) About all the stuff he is doing that harms NYC, he asked, what would someone do differently if they wanted to destroy the city? Nothing, he says. So they would do nothing differently if they intentionally wanted to destroy the city. Get it?

Everyone needs to ask themselves the question if he/she is one of those being naïve about motivations of these radicals? With radicals, it doesn’t matter much whether they are on the street or in government somewhere, same difference. They are serving the same ends.

It can be traced back to Obama politicizing government. So it doesn’t matter whether you are serving in it or outside protesting it. Both sides share the same aspirations. And that radical ideology (for lack of other word) is the same that drives the actions of both.

The real question then is why would we attribute ignorance or stupidity to leftists when they are quite aware of what they are doing, and the consequences of it? Seems pointless.

A current example: the husband and wife in St. Louis, Missouri who defended themselves by bearing arms outside their residence to a mob of protestors, threatening the homeowners on their own property. The prosecutor charged them for threatening “peaceful” protestors.

Judge Napolitano on Fox noted that both husband and wife are lawyers. He said maybe the Soros-funded prosecutor had not considered the charges she placed on them could affect their ability to practice law? But no, no! What if she knew and realized that? Additional harm to her targets? You see, it starts to make sense when you apply reasoning.

Why else would radicals do what they do but to cause intentional harm to their political opponents? It’s the only way it makes sense. Maybe wider damage is the whole purpose.

Another thing we must consider is that reform is antithetical to these radicals. Actually, the last thing they want is reform, in the end, if their real intent is to tear down the entire system. Reform is a much slower way to get to their goals. But they would even use reform (or abuse any reform process) to get their real goals, though that takes work.

In this way, it makes these people part of a larger insurrection hell bent on taking down our government and economic system to replace it with another, Marxist, socialistic system. Even socialism light is not enough for these people. Reform is way too moderate for them. They are more the hard-line Leftists, Marxists of the European flavor.

Closing argument.

Fox news host Tucker Carlson was a target of Leftist attacks and boycotts in the past. His home was vandalized and attacked, repeatedly, and he and his family were threatened. So finally he moved his family and voila, NYT has a piece in the breach to publish (doxx) his new location. Notice how intentional it all is to cause as much harm and inflict as much pain as they can. Ignorance? Not a chance. The Only thing remaining is malicious intent.

So what if we mis-attribute ignorant, naive intentions to Dems they don’t have or deserve? Now who is being stupid if we do that? So is there something wrong with instinctive reactions that play down the malicious objectives of radicals’ actions? Yes, sure is.

And to fight them, we should understand their motives. But we miss that mark when we attribute stupidity, ignorance, or naivete to their motivations. Can we just accept it?

So why would we want to disarm ourselves?
The only obvious question left then is: ‘are we serial deniers?’

Enemy Within, Game On

Ilhan Omar Calls for the Dismantling of the US economy, political system.

William Davis | July o7, 2020  Daily Caller

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar called for the “dismantling” of the U.S. economy and political system Tuesday.

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” Omar said. “We cannot stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

Omar held an event Tuesday in her home state of Minnesota with members of the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous Caucus. Omar tweeted earlier Tuesday that the purpose of the event was to address “racism in policing” in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death..

Omar has joined calls from local Democratic leaders to defund the police after four Minneapolis police officers were fired and charged in connection to Floyd’s death. The Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to get rid of the city’s police department in June.

First it was abolish ICE, then it was abolish police, Then it was the economy, get rid of it. Okay, so let’s just dismantle the whole US system? So she is making it completely obvious, she is against our entire system.

Come here as a refugee from Somalia, and then proceed to tell us our entire system is oppressive — after becoming a US Congressperson — and needs to be torn down.

 

For your reading pleasure, here is what Trump said about her just 2 weeks ago:

Washington Examiner

“Ilhan Omar is going to be very much involved in a Biden government. They will put this hate-filled, America-bashing socialist front and center in deciding the fate of your family and deciding the fate of your country. I don’t think so.”

“She would like to make the government of our country just like the country from where she came. Somalia.”

“No government, no safety, no police. No nothing. Just anarchy. And now, she’s telling us how to run our country. No, thank you,” Trump said.

Oops, right again! Yet he was roundly attacked for what he said. Give me a break!

The Trial On American Culture

Some people might find this fascinating while others might think it is old news. Though I promise it is interesting how it all comes together in the present, in a unique way that might make more sense than what is happening daily in front of our faces .

It’s no secret I’ve been in religious battles from way back. I’m not writing a book here so I will be brief on details. I’m not lecturing anyone either. Those issues and battles may turn some people off. I hear that. But there is sort of the point: it does turn people off.

Allow me to explain about others like me who were engaged in those religious liberty issues by working all sides of the Constitution and our God-given rights with passion.

What is most interesting here is the opposition to our views — I mean the left or hard Left. They had a venom that defies description. All things were on the table. They used everything they could muster to try to knock down any Christian arguments or concepts.

They claimed to be big on freedom like that phrase “freedom from religion”. Within their perspective contained all the rights and freedoms they could find to oppose you. In fact they claimed to be real freedom zealots who just did not want anyone shoving Christianity, or its views, down their throats. Never take Leftists at their word.

So they were supposedly advocates for virtually any freedom, from thought to reason, to first and even acknowledging some second amendment rights. They were not against your freedom, but it had to be hospitable to their freedom and use of it. I won’t bore you.

The wider message was the more freedom the better. However, when it came to Christianity – since it is the only religion they were worried about — they were out to smear it any way possible. If they had to make things up, distort, lie, rip out of context; it didn’t matter what it took. They were out to destroy it as far as the public view anyway. There could be nothing left standing untouched, or unscathed. Scorched earth.

Now you should start to see where I am going with this. So any credible source or hero of Christianity was tarred and feathered. No credibility was to be left to them, whether it was a founder,a great Christian philosopher or writer. The Christian view was to be decimated in such a way no one would have any confidence, or very little. It was really meant to shake our faith. They didn’t want us to believe in it. Thus, question everything.

Sure they used lots of straw men. They fear-mongered about theocracy and projected that we were pushing it on everyone else. Of course it was the exact opposite; they were strategically pushing their hard-line theology on everyone else. It’s sneaky and deceitful.

They wanted nothing left but their view. Tear it all down. I say this because it was a perfect forerunner to what leftists are doing now. Remember: first they came for the Jews, but I didn’t care…. Then they came for the Christians, but I didn’t care. And a lot of people didn’t care about those arguments at the time. Who is going to care?

Liberals, as I called them, said they were all about enlightenment or exercising all liberties freely, but take your faith back into the prayer closet. It should be kept from the public square. Certainly people are familiar with those perspectives.

What I am saying is it was the exact same methodology used then as is applied to everything today. Oh, one would have thought they were the biggest zealots for liberty then. Some real Ayn Rand and Thomas Jefferson or Thomas Paine fans. Right!

Flash forward, now leftists are smearing everything and everyone in history. America just has bad roots. It is stained with blood, etc. Well, you can hear it all everywhere.

Everything is rotten in America. Thou shall have no pride in it. A pox on traditions, too.

But that was the same thing they did to Christians, especially strong ones. Leftists wanted to knock it down at least until no longer functionally influential. And preferably until you were beaten enough to stop fighting. So roll over and let them define, redefine everything in culture and America.

Now we see that was only a rehearsal for what they are doing on a larger scale today, It is the entire country they take issue with. There is no doubt about it. And they don’t want anything good to be left unscathed by their wrath for the country or its history.

In doing so, everything great and good about America is to be defamed or destroyed. No heroes or good history. Everything was bad since its inception. In fact, it was founded on lies and evil. Now you see the similarities, almost verbatim as if planned. But if you heard their rhetoric then, or 20 years ago, it feels like déjà vu mixed with voodoo now.

Destroy Christianity and its moral underpinnings, first. But if you cannot destroy it, then at least destroy people’s faith in it. Leave them no comfort.

Next, do the same thing to the entire fabric of the country. Create distortions, divisions and disagreements. Make everything seem questionable. Throw basic reason under the bus. Then destroy people’s confidence in it all and our foundation. After all, nothing can be salvaged or remain above the watermark. Only their useful bureaucracy.

Does it start to make sense, with all the statues being torn down? Every founder or notable person has tar on them. Every one. Bring out only the bad side of everything in America. This works on people how? Well, it tears down what you thought you held in high regard. Turns out that nothing can be held in esteem. All of it was a lie, or so their mantra goes.

Coincidence, I don’t think so. Now everything is so politicized, meaning nothing is left un-politicized., Well, because all is subservient to their radical ideology. And it is an anti-American, anti-Christian ideology. (commie is more like it)

Now they even get reinforcement aid from some left-wing Christians who are fully on board with this social justice war-gaming, which is only an extension of this ideology. (Liberation theology) Driven more by what it doesn’t like than what it likes because it respects almost nothing except power – political power to propel its evolution.

That is the shortest summary I’m able to give and still get the point across of the sinister nature to it. But I think knowing that makes a much clearer picture about what is taking place. Rather than just being blindsided as to what is going on or why.

The next time Democrats or the Left lectures us about “this is not who we are,” this past is who they still are. So remember we know exactly who they are – or what they are not.

Obama’s Famous Byline

During Obama’s two terms, they had a catchall phrase for their critics. It was six words: “this is not who we are.” It was designed to shutdown their opposition.

Well, now we know and see exactly who they were: espionage, surveillance, spying on political opponents, politicizing all of government culminating in sedition, treason and even interfering in a presidential election. That’s who they are, the worst kind of people.

Any investigation of that corruption would have to be deep-sixed, never to be exposed to the light of the public. And there was a hell of a lot to hide.

Their first major target after Carter Page and Papadopoulos was General Flynn. They were rabid on that case because he could lead right back to Obama’s and Biden’s corruption trail. Via Flynn et al, we saw exactly what happens to the good people. We also know too well what happens to bad ones — they are still around.

It evolved, after the failed and corrupt Mueller special counsel probe, into a hoax conspiracy impeachment that was staged as part of the cover up for what the past administration did, or any investigation into it.

Yes, the 3 ½ year long coverup train planned on steaming right into and through the next election — after denying the results of the last one.

But along came, once again, a convenient pandemic named COVID-19 to isolate our fears to the immediate survival mode. It wiped everything else off the airwaves and concern list. Coronavirus was just what the doctor ordered after the failed impeachment. A chaser.

Just like a made to order diversion, Coronavirus was just the prescription to bury any investigation leading to Obama. And the economic benefit of the COVID shutdown would damage Trump. It would carry the damage they couldn’t mount.

Then, like a nightmare, Flynn came back to center stage with revelations of what the FBI schemed and plotted under Obama. Truth oozes out of the sores – one pore at a time.

So once again, “this is not who we are” is stood on its head showing exactly who they are. The collaborating dark arts of evil cannot cover up their coup forever. It leaks out.

Not to worry, though, the organ of free press was already pronounced DOA in 2016.

Chinese Political Theater

Bad enough what China dropped on the rest of the world, but it continues in subterfuge about what happened. Press aren’t much better either reporting Beijing talking points.

China stood by while they exported the pandemic to the rest of the world. They complained about any resistance to their spreading it. And sure, it was seeded in America sooner than people are saying. The same with Italy.

It was as if it was their mission to spread it as far and wide, as quickly as they possibly could. Then they chose the cover up COVID-19 method.

What they unleashed on the world was as bad as anything else they’ve done for the past 25 years. This is malicious, evil behavior.

But from now until it is over, there will be a whole lot to grieve over. And that grieving will morph into putting blame where it belongs – not on fictional, political talking points. China has given us another big reason to detest what they do. None of it will ever be forgotten.

China, you brought this all on yourself. The Chinese COVID coverup.

9-11 The Infamy Wears Off

It is that important national day of 9-11, once again, with all that it entangles. I find myself still in a constant state of mourning for all the families and great loss of that day, 18 years ago today — feeling more like it’s been 18 months. The kind of loss so big that it always leaves a lump in my throat.

But now, on this day, I am also in mourning for something else. I mourn the loss of CNN, too. Yes, you heard me right, grief not grievance.

I remember back in the early 90’s when CNN was a fledgling news channel as it covered the first Iraq war, Dessert Storm. I recall C-130 Hercules transport planes flying non-stop overhead 24 hours a day in a perpetual pattern. I was told that’s what they were.

For the up to date information, you could turn to CNN as a source for news. Wolf Blitzer was on location there somewhere reporting what was going on. It was called the first televised war — even if that was a distortion. CNN was one voice in a vacuum demanding real-time information. We needed to know what was happening in a country finding its war and defensive posture. CNN was there. Maybe reports were not complete or up to the second but it is all we had. In fact, before it started we were well aware of circumstances via media reports. No internet to rely on either.

Contrast that with the menu of cable news we have now, with Internet and social media compliments. It’s almost hard to imagine that CNN was so prominent of a news source then. But those days are gone, and so is CNN as a credible news source.

So today I am mourning that loss as well as 9-11. Back on 9-11, 2001, CNN tried to keep up with a slurry of news. They tried, at least temporarily, to provide unbiased coverage. I have to say, by then, Fox did a better job. Cable went commercial free for days in wall-to-wall coverage. We were mostly a unified nation, even if George Bush was the President. (Not Al Gore)

The bad guys were in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan. A new area we didn’t know that much about. So much to do and say. Before a military response, there were debates in Congress and they lined up supporting force. Only a few outliers.

Well, with all the mourning today, there are a number of things regarding 9-11 that can anger me like almost nothing else. Those are: lack of respecting or accepting the attack for what it was, trivializing the sanctity of the day; drawing unreasonable parallels or equating other acts of violence to it; using that historical event to promote other partisan political agendas; giving short shrift to victims of that day that continue to mount; or depriving those victims of dialogue and justice that still evades them all these years later. Or, basically misusing the memory or sacred observance of the day. (even 18 years after)

But CNN manages to do about all those, on the day it is memorialized in 2019. And they did it as a matter of programming, which reveals planning. I could list endless poof and examples but that is more writing than I care to do now. I shouldn’t have to that is obvious. It is not only CNN but the entire left does the same. It is not nit-picking.

So cable news chose to talk about gun control, the impeachment agenda and normal partisan gotcha politics. There are 364 other days in the year and that is not enough, they have to corrupt this one too, like everything else?

No, they could not even be bothered to respect the memory and events of the day. They must defile the day’s memory and its significant importance. Nothing is sacred.

Congratulations, CNN, because today you earned the “enemy of the people” title anew!

Politics of Evil

“There is a reason this keeps happening,” said someone in the media on El Paso. No, there are no legitimate reasons for it. Unless you call evil, mental problems, lack of respect for the sanctity of human life, and demented people the reasons.

But trying to attribute rational reasons to an irrational act of hatred and evil is not healthy, and possibly dangerous in itself. If you feel that ‘there is a reason this keeps happening’, then be honest about the fact that there are no valid reasons for it.

Though it makes sense for these people to blame Trump for complicity in this evil? Give me a break. Now they turned it completely political and weaponized the evil acts. Is there any reasons for that? I’ll tell you why: they don’t want Trump going to Texas and are just playing dirty, election politics. But then they also claim politics caused it. Really?

Get it? They are playing politics while saying politics caused it.

Democrats are fundraising with it. The DNC politicized it. Elizabeth Warren is fundraising and exploiting this evil for political gain. That is sick. Can’t they think of anything else?

You know the Rham Emanuel rule: “never let a crisis go to waste.” They wasted no time exploiting horrific evil for political gain, blamed politics, then claim politics is the solution.

Democrats’ yellow brick road to tyranny

My suggestion to Democrats would be come back to reality. But I don’t expect that happening anytime soon. They’ve taken decades getting here.

I do wonder though why every day they are just out to prove that is not possible? It is not bad alone to have the Democrat party, but as a collective it is evil in what they do.

Sadly, you cannot attribute the same characteristics of a person to a party. That would be a mistake. But that is exactly what many on the Left try to do to Republicans. You know how they constantly refer to the party, how Republicans should do this or stop doing that, as if they were appealing to a single person. It is one way they shame Republicans for being out of step with the party.

Well, on the left, party is all they have as a collective. It’s where the power resides. Because individual persons are powerless and/or insignificant. Individuals only have relevant meaning and power within the Democrat party. They really don’t make any bones about that. It is their driving purpose to give power to the voiceless and powerless. And they believe in keeping those people voiceless and powerless without the party.

So, that said, how is it they have those like AOC and Omar doing what they do and no one challenges them? We seem to be struck by the phenomena but it fits entirely with the party. They have taken over the reins of the party apparatus. You can argue about that but it is true. They proved the significant flaw with the party. Someone can rise through leftist tripe and ascend to the head of the party — even without election. It has been proven, first with Bernie and now with the Squad. In fact that was the objective of the Social Democrats’ “Justice Democrats”. Takeover is their objective.

You don’t see the same thing with the Republican party. Oh the Democrats project that theory on Republicans. It is not a reality though, someone doesn’t just hijack the party. They say “but Trump…” No, it’s not the same. If I have to explain it there is a problem.

But it is a simple process on the left. All one has to do is present ideas and incentives to entice people to support him/her. Offer them college tuition, reparations, money or benefits, rights, or power over others for their support. Bernie did not invent the formula though he was only perfecting it to fit his objective. Now he boasts about it.

I saw an interview with Pennsylvania voters that illustrates the hypocrisy of the left. The Democrats were enraged by Trump. They said why doesn’t the party rein him in, he is out of control? They said he needed to be stopped and of course they blamed the Republicans for not standing up. Nazi comparisons came in and they branded him a racist.

But then when the same Democrats were asked about what they thought of AOC and the squad, with their statements and animosity against America, they all agreed AOC’s Squad were a good thing. Two of the four expressed they were refreshing and just what Democrats needed. One black woman said she wants them to shake things up. She said it was what Dems needed. See the difference?

They love Democrats acting that way, but Donald Trump is a racist who needs to be controlled. And they did not have any idea they were contradicting themselves. Nope. They wanted more radical talk on the left while condemning language on the right. In fact, Dems want to impeach Trump for his words.

But as soon as Trump focused on the substance of their radical talk, they were enraged and claimed it has to stop. You see what is going on there. We all do. The truth becomes their number one enemy. And Trump represents the truth in the most dangerous form to them — a threat to their radical existence.

Where have all the media gone?

Oh, when will they ever learn? More lies, more coverup, more scandals.

A new story explodes that media no doubt has zero interest in reporting. If they do, it will need expert Obamafiles’ spin on it for them. You know how Obama never knew anything until it appeared in the paper. In this case, it was sure not to show up there.

What Did Obama Know About Hezbollah’s Bomb Plot in London?

by Brian Cates — June 14, 2019 | Epoch Times

Commentary

President Donald Trump’s long-anticipated visit to Europe during the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion has now come and gone. He arrived in the United Kingdom on June 3 and departed for Ireland on June 5 before hopping across the channel for the official D-Day ceremonies in France on June 6.

What I would like to draw attention to is what occurred immediately prior to Trump’s arrival in the UK, and what subsequently happened immediately after his departure.

Just prior to Trump’s visit, UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced that she would be resigning. She made this announcement on May 24 and stated that June 7 would be her last day in office. Literally one of the last things she would do as Prime Minister would be meeting with Trump.

Following Trump’s departure from Europe, it was suddenly revealed in the UK press that a massive terrorist bomb plot in London by the Iran-linked terror group, Hezbollah, had been foiled several years ago and that authorities had deliberately hidden this plot from the public.

It was in the fall of 2015 that British intelligence agency MI5 discovered a cell of Hezbollah terrorists operating in Northwest London. According to reporting by The Telegraph, the group had amassed a stockpile of more than three metric tons of ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer compound that is a popular key component in homemade bombs.

The Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 by domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh, in which he killed 168 people while causing extensive damage to the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, involved two tons of ammonium nitrate. This Hezbollah terror cell had compiled three tons at the time they were caught. So let’s make this crystal clear: this was not going to be any kind of small-scale attack on London. …/

Okay, but who cares about why May stepped down when what Obama did making the Iran deal buried all the real information, and intelligence, that we had at the time?

Another feather in his no-scandal legacy — to be hidden or deleted in his Lie-Barry.

Will there be any probe into this? Probably not. Talk about conspiracy and cover up!

Some People

“Some people did something,” says Rep Ilhan Omar. Then came her victim tweet:

Some people were radical Islamist Muslims. Something was the 9/ll Attacks — killing over 3000 with over 16,000 Ground Zero responders, to date.

Resulting in the Memorial of Something, I guess. A crying shame.

And she is a victim accusing us of incitement? Condemn our remarks?

On the other hand, Cair was labeled as an unindicted co-conspirator group.

Victim card revoked.

“Something”…..like an act of war.

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.

Praise and Thanks to Cecile Richards

Woman Celebrated For Killing 3.5 Million People

The Babylon Bee — May 1, 2018

U.S.—After her final day as president of abortion provider Planned Parenthood Monday, thousands of people took to social media to celebrate Cecile Richards and thank her for killing 3.5 million people during her tenure.

The nation offered kind remarks on Richards’ positive attitude, support for women’s rights, and ruthless genocidal efficiency.

The hashtag #ThankYouCecile began trending as Planned Parenthood supporters all across the country expressed their gratitude to a woman who orchestrated the wholesale destruction of millions of innocent people. Supporters stated they wanted to make sure her twelve years of service and bloodshed weren’t forgotten as she moved on to the next chapter of her life.

“Your fight for women’s rights and access to healthcare is an inspiration to all of us. Also how you took the idea of killing unborn babies from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘any time for any reason without apology and SHOUT YOUR ABORTION!’ in one decade! #ThankYouCecile” one woman in New York tweeted along with a picture of the outgoing Planned Parenthood president. “We all owe you an eternal debt of gratitude.” Other tweets and social media posts expressed similar sentiments, with thousands praising Richards’ fierceness, bravery, and cold-blooded brutality.

http://babylonbee.com/news/woman-celebrated-for-killing-3-5-million-people/

Cecile gets praised like a humanitarian. How does she top a professional record like that? That is not counting what she and PP have done to election politics.

Abortion: (just don’t call it by name)

Call it a “right”
Call it “healthcare”
Call it “choice”
Call it a “reproductive right”
Call it a “civil right”
Call it “safe”
Call it a “necessary”
Call it an “inconvenience”
Call it “fixing a problem”
Call it “responsible”
Call it “legal”

Call it anything… anything except what it is! Evil (that’s offensive) murder, genocide.

Does 60,383,268 in US since 1973 sound rare? (8.094,076 by PP) 2,009 just today.
Worldwide since 1980, nearly 1.5 billion.

Motivegate: evil personified

It seems a lot of people are disturbed about the questions of motives, or lack of, surrounding the last 3 or so terror-styled events. I call them that because there are questions about calling them terrorism. I.e. Parkland, Las Vegas, Austin.

The second question has to be does it kelp to know the motive? I’m not sure it does. But I can see where motive matters legally when prosecuting criminals. There is still the matter of what they did, not just why.

Concentrating on motive can take our eye off of what they did. We have a need, it seems, to explain why. That can also create lots of conspiracy theories.

In Las Vegas, it leaves room for all kinds of speculation or theories. And there is a niche for conspiracies in this country. There may not be as many motive questions about Parkland since some vengeance or mental characteristics appear to apply. Austin is unique, at least so far, on motives. We don’t know yet or may not know.

But this not knowing seems unsettling to a lot of people. Again, does it change the events, or what happened? I don’t think so.

Another question is: was motive a major consideration to the perpetrator in these cases? I’m not sure, or don’t see it. And if there is no political motive, officials are reluctant to call it terrorism. Yet perps still do these things to instill fear in people by the act itself.

I am coming to the conclusion that maybe the why doesn’t matter all that much. I have to be content that we may never know for sure. Or it could be that they wanted their 15 minutes of fame. I am willing to accept not knowing, though it would be nice to know.

The conclusion though is what if — other than vain fame — there is no clear motive? What if they just did it because they could and because they wanted to? Obviously they could not talk themselves out of it. So it would have been up to someone or something else to intervene to stop it. Two of them had a suicidal pact in the end, Las Vegas and Austin. So they would not really be held accountable.

I am convinced that some people do things just because they can, or because they are fascinated by it. Or maybe it is fantasy they want to carry out? Never mind that it effects so many other lives of innocent people. They overlook that or don’t care.

In the end, I have to be comfortable with not knowing. There is another possibility the person wanted it to be a mystery that everyone is left to solve. Sort of a ha ha, figure it out. To me that can be dangerous. I don’t have to play that game. Then again, maybe these madman killers just want events to speak for themselves? Maybe that is the point.

On the other hand, people sometimes do what they do simply because they can. Maybe there is a void conscience, whatever. I can look at it that they simply had enough drive or ambition to commit the atrocities. Maybe they want to find out if they are really capable of carrying it out in some twisted plan? One possibility is as bad as the next.

Closure should not require knowing a motive. That can be a game. We know what they did.

When asked about the Austin bomber, the family said they could not believe it. “He was a nice kid.” The brother of the Las Vegas shooter said he was a caring guy, it was a total shock — that could be a motive itself. It is a symptom of terrorism. In the Parkland case, you could say it looked like a foregone conclusion that too many people ignored. Seems it is either beyond belief that the person did it or completely predictable.

What about pure evil? I think that is an explanation in itself. People who do evil acts are evil. The acts define thems. Maybe they don’t need a reason? It is self-definition.

We are left to dig through all the evidence and clues to make some theory plausible. Some people get hung up on the why as if there is, or must be, some explanation. Still the rest of us just sit disturbed and offended by the events.

However, these events do raise collateral questions about law enforcement or botched warnings, missed clues. Many more questions than there are answers.

Part 2: Liberation Theology and politics

My last post compelled me to expand on the same topic, which has been a preoccupation of mine over years. I know it may not interest a lot of people, but there is a niche it does.

The words Liberation Theology normally conjure up certain images and, to many of us, is closely associated with Obama or his radical preacher in Chicago. Now all that may be true. However, I don’t think too many people realize the scope of influence it has had on Christianity, churches, or the well-meaning Christian faith.

There were plenty of links in the previous article for a primer. Still an in-depth look at it is really necessary. I started seeing connections many years ago and the subject, with its influence, has stuck with me. I often wondered why I am so bothered by it?

Well, that is self-explanatory if people understood exactly what it is. It sort of validates the concerns all by itself.

Start with the Black Liberation theology that most of us heard of, thanks to Barry and a few others. It is often subtly promoted while lumping in MLK Jr. I don’t agree with that notion but he is commonly used to promote the theology.

Black Liberation Theology is more a radical strain of an already radical ideology. See, in as much as it is a theology, it also seems eerily similar to a political ideology.

(Wikipedia):”Black theology, or Black liberation theology, refers to a theological perspective which originated among African American seminarians and scholars, and in some black churches in the United States and later in other parts of the world. It contextualizes Christianity in an attempt to help those of African descent overcome oppression. It especially focuses on the injustices committed against African Americans and black South Africans during American segregation and apartheid, respectively.

Black theology seeks to liberate non-white people from multiple forms of political, social, economic, and religious subjugation and views Christian theology as a theology of liberation—”a rational study of the being of God in the world in light of the existential situation of an oppressed community, relating the forces of liberation to the essence of the Gospel, which is Jesus Christ,” writes James Hal Cone, one of the original advocates of the perspective. Black theology mixes Christianity with questions of civil rights, particularly raised by the Black Power movement and the Black Consciousness Movement. Further, Black theology has led the way and contributed to the discussion, and conclusion, that all theology is contextual – even what is known as systematic theology.”

But Liberation Theology itself is not just race specific. According to the Britannica Encyclopedia, it has its roots – at least the current form – back in Latin, South America decades ago in the 60’s. The crossover made Christianity both its promoter and apologist.

That puts it back around the same time as the youth unrest and protest movements in the US. (commonly known as the radical 60’s) It also puts itself around the time as Saul Alinsky developed and pushed his radicalism. Of course, Alinsky’s version would not involve religion or Christianity – or does it? Anyway, it means radicalism is not specific to Christianity; but just became a new vehicle to promote and spread radicalism via making common cause in using the Christian community as an ally.

In Latin America, Catholic clergy developed this movement primarily as an answer for poverty they saw and as a way to relate to those people, the poor.

So Liberation Theology is described, in Britannica [1] as:

“Liberation theologians believed that God speaks particularly through the poor and that the Bible can be understood only when seen from the perspective of the poor.”

Basically, they “affirmed,” at a Catholic Bishops conference in 1968, “the rights of the poor and asserting that industrialized nations enriched themselves at the expense of developing countries.“[1]

Does that sound at all familiar?

Also, the Catholic Church for years is more than aware of the theology. As usual, the RCC has written on the subject.

THE RETREAT OF LIBERATION THEOLOGY

by Edward A. Lynch (EWTN Library)

Few intellectual movements have begun with more immediate, favorable
attention than the theology of liberation, developed by Latin
American scholars in the 1960s and 1970s. Encomia to the “new way of
doing theology” came from North American and European scholars and
from many Latin American bishops. At the Second General Conference of
the Latin American conference of Bishops (CELAM), held in Medellin in
1968, liberation theology seemed to come into its own even before the
English publication of Gustavo Gutierrez’s 1973 .

Twenty-five years later, however, liberation theology has been
reduced to an intellectual curiosity. While still attractive to many
North American and European scholars, it has failed in what the
liberationists always said was their main mission, the complete
renovation of Latin American Catholicism.

Instead, orthodox Catholic leaders, starting with Pope John Paul II,
have reclaimed ideas and positions that the liberationists had
claimed for themselves, such as the “preferential option for the
poor,” and “liberation” itself. In so doing, the opponents of
liberation theology have successfully changed the terms of debate
over religion and politics in Latin America. At the same time,
liberation theology had to face internal philosophical contradictions
and vastly altered political and economic circumstances, both in
Latin America and elsewhere. Having lost the initiative, liberation
theologians are making sweeping reversals in their theology.

The response to liberation theology was sophisticated and
multi-faceted. Nevertheless, it is possible to describe its essential
ingredient rather briefly. John Paul II and the other opponents of
liberation theology offered it a cultural challenge. That is, they
took issue with what liberation theology tried to say about the basic
meaning of human life and what is most important to living that life. …./ More

Now that we know what it is today, we also can see the effects it has had on anything from the church to the culture, to every other segment of society. Basically what civil rights and the anti-establishment protest movement did to society, liberation theology did to the Christian church at large.

So while there have been reformations in Christianity’s history, this liberation theology has also now permeated it – in my view. Some may argue, but I only ask that they look around with a critical eye and then tell me it has not.

To simplify it: a sociopolitical Marxist construct that pits the poor against the wealthy.

This conveniently fits into the Democrats’ Marxist paradigm while tying materialism to the church — in that case to the RCC. So it fits the bill all the way around, at least for the progressive Left who use it as an apologetic for their ideology. (doubling as a recruitment tool) But I don’t want to get into whether Democrats actually stand for the poor or downtrodden. The Left has the rhetoric down, and this provides a religious, achem Christian, validation and authority for it. This also conveniently fits with some Hispanics or Latin American immigrants familiar with it from their homeland.

The orthodoxy of the Roman Catholic Church did take issue with it. Those like Pope John Paul II had opposed it. However, as we find in other areas, mere opposition of something does not equate to abolishing it.

What happened though is this movement theology lined up to merge forces with the secular left, as well as leftist political ideology, and the anti-Christian atheists. It fit for both worlds, while reducing any perceived threat to or from secularists — because it had a mutually shared set of goals and platform. It detours Christians from their central faith, to one based on materialism. If Marxists could find anything in that to oppose, I don’t know what it would be. It fits Christianity to Marxism and its step-child socialism uniformly.

What’s not to like for Atheists, Secularists, or Marxist progressives?

The second beauty of the Liberation Theology is that it inherently mixes religion and politics, almost by its nature. And that has many Leftists thrilled with it. No, you thought they had this issue on the left about combining religion and politics, with something called the Separation of Church and State? Wrong. This was exactly what the doctor ordered.

So Liberationist clergy are also ecstatic at the perfect union. And who is to complain, after all? Not the secular Leftists, not the church or clergy, not the Marxists. Who’s unhappy?

That brings us to the next point. Many Christians, even some evangelicals, have latched onto the ideas. That means it has spread across the spectrum of denominations, from the RCC to Methodists, Lutherans, Episcopalians, to small local Christian organizations. See, that was the idea. I call it an epidemic — with as many negative consequences.

That takes us to the polls.

To the polls, to the polls… the Left wants that Christian vote. And, if you think about it, in many ways it even opposes traditional Christian thought and influence. So it is a stealth counter-influence to traditional, real Christians — namely at the voting booth. Now the paradox is that the Left really cares nothing about Christianity, per se, but Liberationist Christians do care about leftist ideology, making them common cause allies. Christians apparently don’t care that the alliance really opposes Christians.
