Logical absurdity from the Science Pope

“There is a real danger that we will leave future generations only rubble, deserts and refuse,”

If “rubble deserts and refuse” were the true lot of man and not an ignorant calumny, there obviously would be no future generations.  The Pope’s rhetoric is unbecoming to say the least.

The clear and present danger is a Pope with a Marxist economic analysis to the detriment of the poor and an undisciplined mouth expounding not a lot of logical rigor, objective science or commitment to the Bible and Roman Catholic tradition  (in our humble, arguably just as guilty, opinion) — rather, a cafeteria pontiff who likes the limelight too much.

In U.S., Record-Low 47% Extremely Proud to Be Americans 
by Jeffrey M. Jones

First time below majority level
Sharp declines since 2017 among liberals, Democrats

Political liberals are even less likely than Democrats to say they are extremely proud — just 23% do so, compared with 46% of moderates and 65% of conservatives. Extreme pride among liberals has dropped nine points in the past year and 28 points since 2013.

Avenatti Says He’d ‘Absolutely’ Beat Trump in 2020 

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who rose to prominence representing adult film star Stormy Daniels, attacked President Donald Trump on Independence Day and said for the first time that he “absolutely” thinks he could beat Trump in a potential 2020 presidential matchup.    . . .

The big-name Kennedy who was once pro-life

Whomever President Trump nominates for the Supreme Court, let the confirmation hearings to replace Justice Kennedy begin with this sentiment, so eloquently expressed by a (one-time) pro-life Democrat, another Kennedy:

“Wanted or unwanted, I believe that human life, even at its earliest stages, has certain right which must be recognized the right to be born, the right to love, the right to grow old.”

This was Edward “Ted” Kennedy’s eloquent view regarding abortion in 1971…that is before he decided the supposed Democrat commitment to the most vulnerable was ~~  inoperative.

The senate opens every session with a prayer but I doubt the senate chaplain will ever make even the slightest reference to the right of life. The Senate chaplain is Barry Black, an African American and Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) cleric. (SDA is now perceived as pro-choice”.)

I wish every opening prayer would include the Kennedy quote until a new SCOTUS justice is confirmed, but sadly I doubt the chaplain would be so inclined.

The revolution was in the hearts and minds of the people

And that must be continuously kindled

 

 

The lead-in quote (below) from John Adams escaped me until now.  It is as profound as they come from our Founders. It was part of the Independence day communication from Patriot Post.  It is set forth for that and because Patriot Post is such a valuable organization. The graphic is not from them but from Americans for Limited Government, another fine organization generous with its produced content.  Our comments follow.

“But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations. … This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.” —John Adams (1818)

And thus it remains “in the minds and hearts” of Patriots to this day.

On this, our nation’s Celebration of Independence, I invite you to read our primer on Independence Day and our concise exposition on the Unalienable Rights of Man. Read the full text of our “Patriot’s Primer on American Liberty” and purchase the Primer Pocket Guides in bulk for distribution to schools, clubs, etc.

As always, join us in daily prayer for our Patriots in uniform — Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen — and all who stand in harm’s way in defense of Liberty. Pray also for their families.

The Patriot Post is inspired by Patriots, supported by Patriots, and devoted to Patriots. Our mission and operations budgets are funded by — and depend entirely upon — the voluntary financial support of American Patriots like you!

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

Relating this country’s struggle for independence  (and the ongoing struggle to sustain freedom from the yoke of overwhelming levels of government) to the illegal immigration situation will be the subject of an upcoming commentary.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!

Radicals still populate, the system protects its own

I know of no other conservative news outlet which has highlighted this story.

It is an important one and conservatives need to pay attention.

CHAI FELDBLUM’S TERM EXPIRES, YET SHE LINGERS ON

Chai Feldblum’s term as EEOC Commissioner has just expired. Readers may recall that Feldblum is the architect of President Obama’s radical LGBT agenda, which she has pushed relentlessly at the EEOC.

President Trump nonetheless renominated Feldblum for another term as commissioner (it would be her third). She was part of a package that included two Republicans.

Sen. Mike Lee put a hold on Feldblum’s nomination, and I believe he’s been joined by several colleagues. Thus, the nomination hasn’t moved, as once it seemed almost certain to. Neither have the two Republican nominees.

But unlike the two Republicans, Feldblum is an EEOC commissioner. She has continued in that influential job.

Now that her term has expired, one might well think Feldblum’s time as commissioner would be up. But we’re talking about Washington, D.C., where the counter-intuitive is the norm. At the EEOC, a commissioner may hang on for months after her term expires if no successor has been confirmed.

But the president has the power to fire commissioners whose terms have expired. Indeed, the president arguably can fire commissioners even before their terms are up. However, it would be going too far to remove Feldblum during her term based on policy disagreements.

Now that Feldblum’s term is over, there is no reason for such restraint. Trump should fire her. If he needs additional incentive to do so, let’s remember that Feldblum removed from her EEOC office wall the picture of President Trump that it is standard practice for U.S. government officials to display.

If Trump fires Feldblum, the EEOC will be down to two commissioners, a Republican and a Democrat. There’s nothing terrible about this. It’s certainly better than a commission that is 2-1 Democrat during a Republican administration — the situation that prevails right now.

But with Trump as president, the commission really should be majority Republican. To accomplish this, Trump and Majority Leader McConnell should break up the three-person package deal and push for the confirmation of just one of the nominees, Daniel Gade.
Gade is a strong constitutional conservative. He’s also a war hero who was disabled serving our country in Iraq. In a tough election year, would Democrats stand united against this man? Only at their peril.

It’s my understanding that the Majority Leader and the Minority Leader reached a handshake agreement to push for the full package that includes Feldblum, Gade, and another Republican. Understandably, Majority Leader McConnell wants to abide by the agreement.

But Sen. Lee and others have blocked the package. McConnell, aided by the business community, have done everything they can to move Lee off of his position, but to no avail. The package has been blocked for half a year. There’s no reason I know of to believe this will change.

It’s time to move on from the package. It’s time to ring in the Republican EEOC majority to which Trump’s election entitles him.

Gade’s nomination should be pushed through whether or not Feldblum is fired. In fact, the longer she remains, the more important it is to confirm Gade so there won’t be a Democratic majority. But even with Gade on board, there would be no Republican majority for a while. So Feldblum should be sacked right away. Eight years is long enough.

ATTENTION! If you have seen this man, do not approach . . .

 . . . but immediately contact Jeff Sessions!

He is John Huber, U.S. Attorney. He is Wanted In Connection With What U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions Said Is A Really, Really Important Investigation…??

Like most members of the media, you may not know who he is.

Huber was named by Attorney General Jeff Sessions way back in March (2018) to look into “Republican claims” (according to CNN) of FBI misconduct and its failure to investigate the former Secretary of State’s likely ‘collusion’ with Russia in what is now known as the “Uranium One” case.

In making the announcement of Huber’s assignment, Sessions said the results of the U.S. Attorney’s probe would be to determine if a Special Counsel should be appointed as a number of GOP congressional leaders have demanded.

It should be noted that Mr. Huber hasn’t been seen or heard from, since his appointment. Kidnapped? Absconded with cash allocated for his investigation? A victim of foul play by anti-Trumpers? Living in Jeff Sessions basement?

We don’t know!

But, unlike the media, members of both Houses and political parties, pundits and political columnists of all stripes we’re curious (see our earlier piece “Where’s Waldo“).

Meanwhile, a couple of facts about the elusive John Huber, excerpted from a March 29, 2018 story by CNN :

– Originally appointed by President Barack Obama in 2015, Huber offered his resignation, leaving his fate in the hands of the DOJ.

– President Donald Trump re-nominated Huber in June 2017

– Last year, former DOJ officials raised concerns over Huber’s appearance at a White House press briefing to tout aspects of Trump’s immigration agenda —

– During a June 28, 2017, press briefing , Huber spoke on the behalf of the DOJ in support of two bills that sought to enforce harsher penalties for illegal immigrants — “Kate’s Law” and the “No Sanctuaries Act,” both of which were passed in the House.

– Huber has been in a leadership role on Sessions’ advisory committee of US attorneys that provide counsel to him and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

– During his first swearing-in ceremony as a US attorney, Huber was described as a “jock with the soul of a geek,” a protector for others against bullies, and a man who lived by the motto: “Be the hammer, not the nail,” according to The Deseret News.

Local Catholic Churches to Turn Off A/C

OK maybe the forgoing is just another headline from our global-warming induced fevered imagination.

Might as well just put up a satanic symbol

It was 100 degrees in KC yesterday. Perhaps a blast from the past is appropriate as Catholics flock to their un-air-conditioned churches (surely they are busy destroying the devils work by now).  So how many  have been shut down in shame over the  suffering their abundance has caused  around the globe?  All  inspired by Pope Francis:

55.   Some countries are gradually making significant progress, developing more effective controls and working to combat corruption. People may well have a growing ecological sensitivity but it has not succeeded in changing their harmful habits of consumption which, rather than decreasing, appear to be growing all the more. A simple example is the increasing use and power of air-conditioning. The markets, which immediately benefit from sales, stimulate ever greater demand. An outsider looking at our world would be amazed at such behaviour, which at times appears self-destructive.
ENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI’ OF THE HOLY FATHER FRANCIS ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME

Nevertheless many or most pew warmers have received reminders this summer from bishops and parish priests across the US to essentially Repent Ye Global Warming Deniers!,  most of course in the cool comfort of their Freon charged enclave. However there are rumors of a new order of priests associated with the Jesuits to be called the Quinquagesimus. They take their name from the 50th parallel as just about all of them come from north of there. Their motto: “Caeli Condiciones Ultra” a revision from their first run-through  “Iam Gente Ferebat” which roughly translates to “No More Carrier Nation”.  It was deemed too ironic  in that Carry Nation is sort of their patron saint.
