This will not end well.
Last night was
yet another episode of Leftists directly attacking the rights of Americans and
completely getting away with it.
Leftist thugs, mostly of the Black Lives Matter ilk, pretty much shut
down a DePaul College Republican event with Milo Yiannopoulos as the main
speaker. And that while security,
which College Republicans and Breitbart News were forced to pay for, just
Of course, last
night also brought a violent Leftist protest at a Trump appearance in New
Mexico. But at least the
Albuquerque Police made a good faith effort to stop them.
has often not been the case. The
Black Lives Matter crowd has particularly been handled with kid gloves even as
they block traffic on major roads.
I remember one such episode in which police just watched as Black Lives
Matter blocked off traffic. But
when a driver very slowly tried to get through, he was arrested! (Sorry. This has been some time back and I cannot find the episode
gotten so bad in this country, I hesitate to make predictions for fear I will
be seen as inciting something. But
I will allow my logical readers to put two and two together.
Leftists who time and again directly attack the Constitutional rights of
Americans, particularly free speech and freedom to travel, especially necessary
travel to work, etc. And you have
millions of Americans who are fed up with their rights being attacked and who
see that the authorities not only do not defend their Constitutional rights,
but also attack said rights themselves.
The episode at
DePaul is that in a microcosm. To
my knowledge, not a single Leftist was arrested. The Leftists were allowed to shut down freedom of speech at
an event. But a conservative
journalist was arrested!
may see numerous episodes like this and think that the authorities will not
defend their rights, so they will have to defend their rights themselves.
I’m afraid soon
the two aforementioned groups of predatory Leftists and fed up Americans will
meet in great numbers with . . . consequences. And by “soon,” I mean at the Republican National Convention
Republican National Committee was foolish to pick Cleveland for the
convention. Cleveland is a
DemocRAT hole. Can that trashy
city government be trusted to defend Republicans – Trump supporters especially
– from the Leftists who will surely flock there in the thousands?
you don’t like me calling you out?
Then prove me wrong. Prove
you are willing and able to defend the rights of the Republicans coming to your
Cleveland, you will have a combination of predatory Leftists, fed up Americans,
and a city government who probably doesn’t care much about defending the rights
of Americans, especially Republicans.
If the Trump people want their rights genuinely defended, they may find
themselves having to do it themselves.
And some understandably won’t be in the mood to be gentle about it.
Again, I would
rather not spell out what that might look at. But this pattern of Leftists directly attacking our rights
and authorities doing precious little about it cannot end well.

About Those Switched House Votes
there was quite a commotion on the floor of the House of Representatives about
an amendment pushed by the Gay Mafia.
Several Republicans switched their votes to defeat it, which prompted
Democrats to carry on and play the outrage game.
The failed amendment would have
effectively nullified a provision in the defense authorization that the House
passed late Wednesday night. The language embedded in the defense bill states
that religious corporations, associations and institutions that receive federal
contracts can't be discriminated against on the basis of religion.
Democrats warn that such a provision
could potentially allow discrimination against the LGBT community in the name
of religious freedom. Maloney's amendment specifically would prohibit funds to
implement contracts with any company that doesn't comply with President Obama's
executive orderbanning federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT
Republicans voted down was another attempt to put LGBT demands over religious
freedom. The Obama regime has
already attacked religious freedom among the military and pushed political
correctness and the LGBTQXYZ agenda in the armed forces as well. The amendment would have furthered
that. A narrow majority in the
House rightly said, “No.”
But that is not
how it being reported.
Fakebook Facebook is yet again a negative example of
media bias, describing the story this way in its trending section:
Clash Occurs on House Floor After LGBT Rights Bill Defeated
No mention of
the religious freedom issues involved in the headline. One would think it was all about the
mean majority defeating the rights of those poor, put upon, LGBT people.
one has to dig deep to find out that the defeated amendment would have further
eroded freedom of religion. Even
(especially?) a Google search is not as helpful as it should be to get to the
heart of the matter - that this was a fight over freedom of religion.
LGBTQXYZ agenda is so much more
important than Freedom of Religion to the “mainstream” media and Silicon Valley,
don’t you know.
although I have studies to attend to, I wanted to do my part to blow the cover
off this spin from Silicon Valley and the “mainstream” Democrat news media.

The Significance of Trump’s Supreme Court List
Donald Trump released a list of eleven judges he would consider appointing to
the Supreme Court. Conservatives,
including some not at all well disposed towards Trump, are impressed.
I find this
significant. Conservatives like me
knew Hillary Clinton would appoint horrific Supreme Court Justices but also had
little to no confidence in Trump’s wisdom in making SCOTUS appointments. But now Trump is laying out that his
Supreme Court appointments would likely be excellent or at least far better
than Hillary’s. And it may make
Supreme Court appointments the issue it should be in this election.
assurance makes it more likely that I will hold my nose and vote for
Trump. And I am someone who has
been profoundly unhappy with him as a perusal of some past posts will reveal.
Thus, if I am
any indicator at all, Trump’s move was a smart and significant one politically

Fake Hate Cake
When the “FAG”
cake story came out last month, I smelled yet another fake hate hoax. But I was actually prudent and decided
to let more facts come out before opining.
enough, it has been exposed as yet another fake hate hoax. Libchurch perp Pastor Jordan Brown has
somewhat apologized and confessed Whole Foods did “nothing wrong.”
I think this a
good time to remind readers of one of my Laws of Political Life . . . . Well, I
haven’t actually written down such.
But if I did, one of them would be . . .
Yes, there are
noble exceptions. Alan Dershowitz
and Dennis Kucinich come to mind.
But lying is in the DNA of Leftism. Various mutations of Leftism put total victory over
political opponents above life, liberty, and truth. Look at the millions upon millions that Communism has killed
and enslaved. If you can do that
or support that or even downplay that and sleep at night, then lying comes
And from my
decades of observing politics I can assure you Leftists lie a lot. (Learning this has been a shock at times
for me.) If you recognize that if a Leftist has his mouth open, he is probably
eating or lying, it will greatly assist your understanding of what really is
And we are
seeing that demonstrated time and time again in the epidemic of fake hate
By the way,
include libchurch leaders like Jordan Brown in that. Libchurch leaders lie, too. Those who present themselves as Christians while knowingly
denying the basics of the Faith have a seared conscience and serious demonstrated
problems in dealing with truth.
And if you
think I’m harsh, read what St. Paul wrote.

Obama’s Bathroom Decree and the Absurdity of Tyranny
I will leave
aside the moral and practical implications – and they are many – of the Obama
Regime’s decree that public schools must let students go to the bathroom of
their choice or else.
Much like the
Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling, what strikes me most about this is the
utter anti-democratic, anti-Constitution, and anti-rule-of-law nature of this
decree. It is simply an exercise of raw arbitrary and unsanctioned power to
impose social engineering. It uses the cudgels of lawsuits and federal funds to
force public schools to enact a novel bathroom policy that has nothing to do
with present law. As if the
framers or even the amenders of the Constitution ever intended the Federal
Government to have anything like this kind of power. As if those who voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 intended
Joe Bob to be able to use the girls’ room.
Which leads me
to the second aspect of this decree – its absurdity. Yes, let’s get real.
That public schools be required by the Federal Government to let boys
use the girls’ room is absurd at the very least.
But that is the
nature of tyranny. Tyrants impose
absurdities upon the unfortunate people under them just because they can (or
think they can). Haircut rules in
North Korea, laws on saluting in Nazi Germany, any number of silly campaigns
under Mao are among the examples.
President of the United States is also plunging us into the absurdity of
tyranny is disturbing.

When History Gets “Interesting” . . . and You’re In It.
already know that “interesting” in the title above refers to that famous curse
– “May you live in interesting times.”
Of course, the most interesting times in history are usually those most
difficult to live in. World War
II, for example, or the Black Death of the mid-14th Century.
Lately as I
watch current events, I think we are living in the midst of “interesting
times”, times that are becoming a dark and difficult period of history.
So I am
prompted to look at different responses to finding oneself in such times. . . .
And most of the responses are wrong and therefore not helpful.
response is to trivialize it. Such
can really become offensive. One
reason we deplore Holocaust deniers and downplayers is that we in our hearts
know it was a terrible episode involving the deaths of innocent millions. To downplay that in any fashion is
religions and philosophies can lead to downplaying tragedies of history. Materialism and Darwinism teach that
such are just part of life and even overall advancement in this material world
and are neither really good or evil – one reason pure Materialists and pure
Darwinists are rare.
should not trivialize such tragedies but, in trying to be helpful, sometimes do
by saying God is in control; God’s will and providence prevails, etc. Those truths are all indeed true. But truth can be misapplied.
Say you are at
the foot of the cross. Would it be
appropriate to put on a smile and tell Mary that God is in control? No, one should weep with Mary. Weep
with those who weep.
And no matter
how much God was in control – and He was and is – the crucifixion of Christ is
arguably the worst crime in history.
It should not be trivialized or bypassed in any fashion.
misapplication of the truth of God’s Sovereignty can lead to apathy. And it can lead us to “falling down to
the wicked” (Prov. 25:26), to letting evil have its way. Thank God Charles Martel and his men
instead fought with all they had in the face of wicked Muslim invaders who had
already made North Africa a spiritual wasteland lest Europe meet the same
fate. (Would modern European
leaders have that much wisdom!)
And, to be
blunt, there has historically been too much pious apathy among American
Christians. How many do not even
bother to vote! This apathy has
enabled the tyranny now taking over the United States.
trivializing historic tragedy and current evil and justifying one’s own
inaction by saying God is in control is not a right and Christian
response. Christians should weep
with those who weep and should pay more mind to their responsibilities to
oppose evil. God’s providence is
no excuse for our apathy and putrid laziness.
*Takes breath* I hope to address other wrong responses
to evil times in future posts.

Resuming Formal Studies
I found out
yesterday that I will be resuming formal studies by earning a Certificate of
Anglican Studies from a reputable U. S. seminary’s distance program.
I had been
seeking, for a year or more, how best to resume formal studies. The process has taxed my patience
although I can say I practiced patience well, at least for me. But I cannot say I have made excellent
use of this in-between time, the time between publishing and promoting my novel
Pilot Point and resuming formal
studies. Like many men, without a
clear purpose and goal, I flounder a bit.
It hasn’t helped that figuring out the best way to resume studies has
taken longer than I originally expected.
certainly have had enough to do and enough business to take care of. But without a compelling and clear
goal, that hardly motivates. So
I’ve floundered. I’m not making
excuses. But I’m a sinful man, and
that’s how sinful men are.
So I am glad
the in-between time is over. For
the next year or so, God willing, my focus will be on earning a Certificate of
may make my posting here less frequent.
Or, who knows, what I study may inspire more posts. But I suspect it will be the former.
I hope that earning
my certificate will make my future writing here and elsewhere that much more
erudite and effective. One can
study, hope, and pray for that anyway.
