This time, the sky really IS falling

Li’l Lindsey Graham is once again doing what he does best, and that’s to terrify Americans into supporting yet another war. From Fox News:

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM sounds the alarm about the growing threat of the Islamic State, the militant group formerly known as ISIS, launching an attack on American soil unless President Obama takes more decisive action to stop terror group’s surge across Iraq and Syria.

And as we all know, by “decisive,” Li’l Lindsey means “doing what Bill Kristol and Bibi Netanyahu want us to do.” So let’s all run around the room screaming, then take DECISIVE action and beg our Congress to do the one thing it’s capable of doing, and that’s to vote money for Israel and the Pentagon. Otherwise the Islamic State armored division will sprout wings and swoop out of the skies and spray Des Moines with 30mm shells.

What will the outcome be? We know that: Armaments industries and AIPAC will shower Li’l Lindsey and his friends with generous campaign contributions. After a decade or so, the guerrillas will out-maneuver the invaders, and we’ll have NO CHOICE but to grant citizenship to the Syrian and Iraqi Muslims who collaborated with US forces.

Win-win!

Another View on the Ann Coulter Ebola Column

Ann Coulter sure has a knack for stirring up trouble. Her Ebola column has a caused an interesting division on the right which is chronicled here.

Below, Alan Cornett takes the contra Coulter view. Tom Piatak defends Coulter at Chronicles.

I see both sides, although I have no problem with them bringing the Ebola infected doctor and nurse back to the US which seems to be a lot of people’s issue. The likelihood of Ebola spreading to the US because of those two patients is vanishingly small. Discuss.

Ann Coulter, Dr. Brantly, & the False Choice

by Alan Cornett

Ann Coulter, she of blonde and bombast, posted a jaw-dropping column yesterday in which she called Dr. Kent Brantly, who is a real medical hero, “idiotic” for his decision to go to Africa to treat the needy. It was a choice that led to his (and nurse Nancy Writebol’s) infection with the deadly Ebola virus.

Brantly’s apparent idiocy, according to Coulter, has led to Samaritan’s Purse spending more than $2 million to bring him back. “Whatever good Dr. Kent Brantly did,” she writes, “has now been overwhelmed” by that tremendous financial cost. Because making a cost-benefit analysis of helping others is what the Biblical Good Samaritan is best known for.

“Why did Dr. Brantly have to go to Africa?” Coulter asks incredulously. Missionaries like Brantly “slink off to Third World countries…to do good works” when their real need is here in America, “the most consequential nation on Earth.” Brantly should have “served the needy in some deadbeat Texas town” instead of engaging in “Christian narcissism.” This is the Coulter worldview.

I know there are some, many, in fact, who in essence agree with Coulter. I have spoken with Christians who think just this way. We have enough work to do here, why go somewhere else?

But Coulter has presented us with a false choice. For us to complain that Dr. Brantly should have stayed here to do his work is, 1) to presume that we have any right to control what Dr. Brantly should do (I thought that was one of the fears of Obamacare, that doctors would be told where to work), and 2) that Dr. Brantly is the only doctor who can do volunteer and charity work.

I have made ten trips to foreign countries doing missionary work (in a teaching, not a medical, role). I have good friends who have traveled to Sierra Leone where Ebola is now spreading. And I know people who know Dr. Brantly. I understand why people decide to “go.”

When someone decides to go to a foreign field to do needed work, they are not the only ones who are capable of a certain role. Dr. Brantly is not the only doctor from Texas. There are doctors in Texas who have no desire, or ability, to go to Africa like Dr. Brantly did. That’s perfectly fine. But they don’t have to wait for Dr. Brantly to get well, decide to abandon Africa, and return to Ann Coulter’s deadbeat Texas town. No, they could go do that work themselves right now.

There are always more who stay than those who go. To criticize those who go for not staying is to make the false assumption that all our resources are currently being utilized to their fullest capacity. It is to assume that the missionary who goes does not leave behind scores—hundreds—of others perfectly capable of doing the same work here.

Paul of Tarsus spent a couple of decades traveling from city to city in the eastern Roman Empire preaching the gospel. Barnabas found Paul (still Saul at the time) in his hometown of Tarsus, but convinced him to leave to come to Antioch to help out. That began Paul’s journey far afield, a journey that would lead to him being stoned, beaten, shipwrecked, imprisoned, and eventually martyred. Couldn’t Paul have stayed in the deadbeat town of Tarsus and just preached there? Was Paul an idiot to leave, just a Christian narcissist?

Philip the Evangelist spent some early time “going,” traveling to Samaria, encountering the Ethiopian eunuch on the road to Gaza (dangerous places, eh?). But Philip ended up in Caesarea where the account of Acts leaves him. Paul comes through Caesarea in Acts 21 where he stays with Philip, who apparently has been there all this time, probably for twenty years. Philip had decided to “stay.” We have no record of his work, but no doubt he had been busy doing what needed to be done in the deadbeat town of Caesarea.

Neither path was wrong, both Paul’s and Philip’s work were needed. As the body has many parts, and each with its own role, so we do not need to judge the one who goes nor the one who stays.

Sadly, those who often criticize those who choose to go, as Dr. Brantly went, are those who are really afraid that with those workers gone, they themselves might be expected to step into the gap.

So when Ann Coulter criticizes Dr. Brantly, is it because she laments the loss of his help in serving others, or is it because with him gone, she might be afraid someone will expect she do it herself? Ann, there’s a deadbeat Texas town just waiting for you.

Unclear on the concept

One of the loudest and least reflective of the armchair generals demanding Obama go back into Iraq calls herself “neo-neocon.” She’s a competent writer but is wedded to the notion that all problems, whether they be Putin in Ukraine, ISIS in Iraq, or Miley Cyrus in concert, can and should be solved by military action. (I might be persuaded about Miley Cyrus.)

Anyway, her latest post chides Obama for not taking more decisive action in Iraq (“decisive,” of course, meaning “doing whatever Bill Kristol and Bibi Netanyahu demand.”). In neo-neocon’s eyes, Obama is an out-of-touch idealist who thinks he can hug and dialogue his way out of every problem instead of having to wage war. Says neo-neocon:

Turns out that America as cowboy wasn’t so bad after all. The worldwide events of the last few years underscore how putting the “can’t we all just get along?” crowd in charge is one of the surest paths toward chaos and war. That is a terrible paradox, one that has been amply demonstrated in the past, particularly in Munich, 1938.

Ah, yes. It’s Munich, I tell you! Because anything other than shock and awe is capitulation.

But the kicker is that neo-neocon cites Rudyard Kipling’s “The Gods of the Copybook Headings” with this comment:

It is a profoundly realistic, resigned, and anti-liberal statement of human nature and its follies, and the futility of “hope and change.” The Gods of the Copybook Headings laugh at Nobel Peace Prizes, recognizing them as temporary illusions.

Talk about unclear on the concept. When Kipling wrote this powerful poem, he had just lost his son in the mindless meatgrinder we today call WWI. The poem is about the empty-headed slogans people let themselves be fooled by. (“Global Democratic Revolution,” anyone?) It’s laughable that the same post that urges Obama to go back into Iraq quotes a poem with this verse:

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire; 

Read that last line again about going back to the fire. That’s exactly what neo-neocon and the rest of her ilk want us to do in Iraq.

Neocons. They never learn from their mistakes. Worse, they never admit they make mistakes.

PC Hysterics Claim a Virginia GOP Scalp, VA GOP Cheers Them On

Bob FitzSimmons, the treasurer of the apparently ball-less Virginia Republican Party, is stepping down because some poor PC sensitive babies got their diapers in a bunch over the inconvenient hate facts he posted on his private Facebook page.

Briefly, Obama issued a Ramadan related statement praising the contributions of Muslims to the “fabric of America” and the “core of our democracy.” Mr. FitzSimmons posted a Facebook reply calling the President out for his obvious hyperbolic pandering. The hysteria quickly ensued. Take a look at this HuffPo article, and you’ll see that it wasn’t just Dems and libs wetting their collective pants. Some of his fellow Republicans were wetting theirs as well. I guess cutting off your balls causes problems with continence.

I got in a debate about this with a bunch of PC squishes and Establishment water carriers on a Facebook. (Is there a bigger waste of time?) Here is what I wrote:

Here is what Obama said. “In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” This is so obviously hyperbolic and pandering it’s laughable. He didn’t say Muslim have contributed to our economy for example. He said “very fabric of our nation” and “core of our democracy.” Please PC apologists, work that out for me. Fabric of our nation? Core of our democracy? Please explain.

And:

Here is what Fitzsimmons said. “To mark the end of Ramadan, on Sunday, Obama released a statement thanking Muslim Americans “for their many achievements and contributions….to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”

It is one thing to be gracious on religious holidays, but this is pure nonsense. Exactly what part of our nation’s fabric was woven by Muslims? What about Sikhs, Animists, and Jainists? Should we be thanking them too?”

FitzSimmons is equally obviously correct. Obama’s statement was “pure nonsense.” Perhaps FitzSimmons, knowing the current PC oppressive intellectual climate, could have phrased it differently, but he was speaking truth and calling Obama out for his lies. Before the PC hysteric chorus replies in outrage, take a few deep breaths and just think. That Obama was FOS and FitzSimmons speaking truth is hardly debatable. Truth is under no obligation to conform to modern PC sensibilities.

I wish he hadn’t stepped down. The PC Beast must be resisted, not caved into.

The Rachel Held Evans vs. Mark Driscoll Throwdown

Rachel Held Evans is an ex-evangelical Christian turned liberal “Christian” blogger who whines a lot about traditional Christian gender roles, sexual rules, etc. as she plays the role of ex-conservative (religiously speaking) Christian trying to come to grips with doubt and uncertainty while wholeheartedly embracing modern PC mores. You know the type, of which she is a virtual caricature. To illustrate the kind of insufferable foolishness we are dealing with here, in her blog post accusing Driscoll of a “disturbed mind” she warns her readers that the post contains “crude language, slurs, misogyny, homophobia.” Oh no, not that dreaded homophobia. Get it? If you don’t embrace wholly modern PC norms, then you have a disturbed mind. Meaning, I guess, that every human being that ever lived on the earth prior to 50 years ago +/- had a disturbed mind.

Mark Driscoll is the Pastor of the Mars Hill mega church in Seattle, WA. There is something to be said for decorum, and I believe that Driscoll does at times use indecorous and unwise language. The Church should be clear, for example, that the Bible explicitly condemns all sex outside of marriage, but discussing licit sex within marriage from the pulpit is generally unwise and in popular intended books is questionable at best. It is a subject that is best left to individual counseling and perhaps a specialty book. Some of the stuff Held holds up as evidence of Driscoll’s disturbed mind is intemperate, although for context he was writing anonymously on a blog with the intent of shaking people up. But all that said, his basic underlying premises which are upholding Biblical, historic and natural gender roles and bemoaning the sorry state of the modern American male desperately need saying. What we need is a more gentlemanly and prudish Mark Driscoll to compete against the Rachel Held Evans types and the largely amoral manosphere.

Mark Driscoll Has Done Crossed a Line!

“And the pastel cashmere wearing sensible haircut clean shaven loafer wearing minivan driving suburban sympathizers contend “But they really really love each other.”” ~ Pastor Mark Driscoll

Ok, that does it! Driscoll has done gone and crossed a line! How dare he insinuate that there is something wrong with loafers?! Yeah, pastel cashmere is too much, but loafers, khakis and an oxford cloth button down are about as much of a man uniform as you are going to find. Personally, I’m a wingtip guy, but what kind of un-American freak disparages an American icon like loafers?! Dissing loafers is like dissing apple pie and baseball. What is this guy? Some sort of communist? What’s next? Will he be recommending Extra-Crispy? May the spirit of G. H. Bass haunt him ’till his dying day!?

Addendum: I suppose I should clarify for those who don’t get the context, there is a serious issue here that I’m playing off of that we might call the Rachel Held Evans vs. Mark Driscoll throwdown. I’ll comment on that separately.

The Daily Beast Plays Thought Enforcer Regarding Nullification

Per Tom Woods:

The Daily Beast, like its neoconservative counterparts at the Free Beacon, is a thought-control site that aims to ferret out unapproved opinions. We are supposed to confine ourselves to the McCain/Obama box where the Daily Beast is comfortable. Anyone with opinions outside that box is by definition an “extremist,” and probably kind of crazy. Why else would someone hold an opinion that can’t be found anywhere in the whole three inches separating McCain from Obama?

So I actually laughed out loud when I read this classic thought-control headline: “Exclusive: GOP Senate Candidate Caught Saying States Can Nullify Laws.” (Thanks to Per Bylund for sending the link.)

So wait a minute! You mean someone asked a fundamental question? She must be destroyed, citizen!

Here is the comment I posted at the Daily Beast:

Ummm … the only problem with this article is that states CAN nullify laws. What the “mainstream” thought enforcers here need to ask is did the Framers intend nullification to be an option, and the bulk of the historical evidence suggest that they did. See Tom Woods’ book on the subject.

The Liberty Church Project Is Underway!

By Chuck Baldwin

I am excited to announce that we have met our goal, and we are launching the Liberty Church Project!

Just a little over two months ago, I told readers of my plans to launch a project through which we would be able to travel the country and help people start independent non-501c3 churches and Christian fellowships–and help established pastors resurrect the patriot pulpit. Thanks to the generous contributions of the readers of this column, we are now prepared to begin the application process.

If you have a group of Christian people (even a small group), with or without a pastor, and are serious about wanting to start a non-501c3 church or fellowship, I encourage you to go to the Liberty Church Project website and fill out the online application. If you are a pastor who has a congregation of believers (even a small one) and want help in starting a non-501c3 church or fellowship, please fill out the online application on the website. If you are a pastor of an existing church and would like to have help in schooling your people in withdrawing from the government 501c3 non-profit status, or in helping to educate your flock in the Biblical Natural Law principles of liberty, I encourage you to fill out the online application also.

Another element of this project is the desire to help patriot pastors and liberty churches get together. Kind of like an eHarmony.com for pastors and churches. (Chuckle) I know of scores of ordained ministers who are extremely desirous to pastor a group of freedom-loving Christian people. And I also know of hundreds of Christian people who are desperately looking for a patriot pastor and cannot find one. This part of the project might involve a pastor to move to a location where a small group of Christian patriots are anxious to help, and stand with, a patriot pastor. If you are a layman or ordained minister such as this, I encourage you, too, to fill out the online application.

A note about the application process is in order at this time. First, we will take the time to thoroughly analyze each application in order to determine the seriousness and commitment of each applicant. We only plan to invest the kind of time and money that this project requires on people who are truly serious about this, and who are committed to seeing it accomplished. I am very serious about being a good steward of the money that folks have invested in this project and of my time away from home. Frankly, only folks who are serious about this project should apply. Second, the priority determining the time and place of these conferences depend on several factors, and we will take as much time as we need to properly study and plan each visit. This is a marathon to me–not a sprint. Some events will take weeks, others months, before coming to fruition. Applicants should be prepared for that.

Here is the online application form for the Liberty Church Project:

Liberty Church Project Application

Now, there is one more appeal I am impressed to make. And before I make the appeal, I realize that I may be speaking to, perhaps, only one person in the entire country. Then again, perhaps there is no one at all in a position to do what I’m asking. But, for the sake of the work that we are undertaking, I will make the request nonetheless.

The accomplishment of the Liberty Church Project will require a tremendous amount of flying. In the last few years, I have flown commercially over a quarter-million miles, and I don’t mind telling you I detest it. It’s not the flying I mind; it’s the entire airport/TSA experience. I can tell you that you probably could not suggest a TSA-nightmare scenario that I have not experienced firsthand. Couple the TSA-Nazi treatment with the problems that routinely come up when flying with the major carriers, and, well, this is the part of the task that I truly dread. Not to mention the tremendous amount of time wasted sitting in airports waiting on connecting flights.

Therefore, I am asking for a qualified IFR, multi-engine rated pilot who is financially independent–and who owns his own plane–that would be willing to fly me and my staff to these Liberty Church Project meetings. The plane should probably be a twin-engine turboprop with a range of at least 1,000 miles that can seat at least six people. I am not offering a salary; hopefully, I would be able to pay for the fuel–and, of course, the meals and lodging of the pilot–at the events. The complete cost of a plane such as this would quickly consume all of the funds that we have for the entire project; and I want to visit as many places and help as many people as possible to help start liberty churches. I, myself, am not receiving a salary from the project; the money is being used to help start churches.

Believe me, I realize what I am asking. And I almost talked myself out of asking it, but the Lord seemed to impress upon me the need to ask. I further realize that there might not be such a person in the entire country who is willing and able to help me with such a request. Not only does this person need to be a qualified pilot with the appropriate plane and financial independence, he must also share the burden we have to help plant non-501c3 churches and help resurrect patriot pulpits across America. That’s more than a tall order. It’s a Mount Everest kind of order. But this entire project is a Mount Everest kind of project. So, as I initially left the funding for the project in the hands of God and the readers of this column, so I leave this need. If this person does not exist, we will gladly bear the burden of commercial flying.

If you believe you are the kind of person I am looking for, please email my assistant at sec@chuckbaldwinlive.com and I will be happy to speak with you further.

So, the Liberty Church Project is underway!

Once again, I want to thank all of you folks who gave so generously to the project. And I covet your prayers. Now, the hard work begins. The Lord willing, we will be able to help folks start liberty churches for at least the foreseeable future.

Those of you who would like to continue to support the Liberty Church Project, you may certainly do so. If you are writing a check or money order, here is where to send it:

Or, if you prefer to use a credit card, go to the website here:

Liberty Church Project

I truly believe that the only permanent answer to America’s woes is to resurrect patriot pulpits and liberty churches, such as existed in Colonial America, throughout the United States. I also believe that the Liberty Church Project is at the tip of the spear in what might lead to the next great spiritual awakening in our country. Please pray for us as we launch the Liberty Church Project.

New Word: Likudzi

The pejorative “Nazi” is said to derive from the German word “ignatz”, simpleton. Many abusing this word “Nazi”, against others who are not Nazis, are themselves Jewish, and even Zionist. The most aggressive of these Zionists are those following the Likud Party of Israel, which many of the American neocons, and perhaps the Israeli lobbies (multiple and powerful), support.

And so I suggest, in light of recent barbarity in Israel (1, 2), adopting the pejorative “Likudzi” in defence from the mighty pejorative, “Nazi”.

Anyone to the right of Bill Ayers is frequently slurred as a “Nazi”, which our society perceives as the ultimate evil. If asking a modern American to give an example of pure evil, he’ll likely mention Hitler. All values opposing Hitler then are good, so for modern America perhaps Ayers is an example of pure good. Unfortunately, nearly all Americans are somewhere in the grey area between. And so, we’re attacked with the slur “Nazi” for being to the right of Bill Ayers.

In closing, if attacked with the dreaded word “Nazi”, or its terrifying twin “racist“, by a person who happens to be Jewish, I recommend happening to counter with, “Likudzi”.

Note though: This is a defensive action. And pejoratives are powerful, very powerful. What Zionists do to Arabs on the other side of the globe is really none of my business. I wish for peace, but I don’t pretend to have the right to meddle there. Greater Israel, Lesser Israel, no Israel, none of my business.

Disturbing Dual-Morality in Israeli Mob Song

According to The Electronic Intifada, the following video with subtitles is accurate.:

Lyrics include:

“In Gaza there’s no studying. No children are left there”
“I hate all the Arabs.”
“Tibi, Ahmed Tibi, I wanted you to know: The next kid to be hurt will be your kid. I hate Tibi. I hate Tibi the terrorist. Tibi – is dead! Tibi – is dead! Tibi – is dead!”
“Gaza is a cemetery.”

Psychotic!

And yes, I take pleasure revealing the hate from these Zionists. So many of them (eg. Kristol, who is pro-mass immigration) support “nationalism for me, not for thee” throughout Europe and America. Look at how twisted and extreme these men have taken it in the video!

It’s as shocking as the ANC’s folk song, “Kill the Farmer, Shoot the Boer“, which lyrics repeat “shoot the Boer”. Now that the ANC has power, we see the benevolent results there.

Never again should a Zionist be free to condemn nationalism anywhere else in the world. Also though, never should nationalism be taken to such an extreme. The few in the US Right who’ve gone as far (become as twisted) as the men in the Zionist video, tend to be false flags (worked for FBI, lawyer defended him as only pretending to be hateful as part of job). The real nationalists in the US are never so hateful, so it’s shocking for me to see such authentic hate among Israeli nationalists.

Addendum: The ADL has a hate report on the CofCC, though the CofCC has often supported Israel’s attempts at defending its own borders from mass immigration. Similarly Jared Taylor’s AmRen has long striven to be friendly to Jews, Taylor is of course condemned in that report. Nationalism for me, not for thee.

Biden went too far off the plantation last year, quote: “Think — behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry.” Immigration too.

Israel Attacks Third UN School in Gaza, Dozens Killed.

France welcomes in Iraqi Christians: Christians who had endured everything, until Bush and Obama drove them from Iraq. I imagine the Palestinian, and perhaps Israeli, Arabs will also eventually be removed to Europe or the US, to make way for Greater Israel. After all, Europe and America are “ideological nations“. Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, Israel for Zionists, white polities for… everyone.

Raw Story Goes on PC Witch Hunt Against Michael Peroutka

For those who don’t know, Michael Peroutka won the Republican primary for a seat on the Anne Arundel County, Maryland City Counsel.

Now the PC Gestapo is up in arms. What amazes me about some of these stories is how out in the open they are. Anyone who is at all familiar with dissident right and third party politics should know very well where Michael Peroutka is coming from. Obviously these lefty PC thumb breakers don’t follow the other side except maybe what the SPLC says about them, so they act like they have stumbled upon some scandalous revelation. So Peroutka is a young earth creationist? Yeah. So Peroutka uses the Bible to evaluate laws. Yeah. So Peroutka was (is?) a board member of the League of the South and thinks secession is a legal and constitutional remedy. Yeah. The guy is not a phantom. He is a past Constitution Party nominee for President and his association with the League is well documented. Ever heard of the internet and YouTube Mr. Raw Story investigative reporter? Wow, you’ve really managed a scope here. I don’t follow all the ins and outs of far left politics in America, but if someone said lefty X once said nice things about Trotsky or Margaret Sanger or something, I wouldn’t be shocked. That’s what far lefties do. (As opposed to far rightists who scandalously say nice things about the Founders.)

Here is another breathless Raw Story article about Peroutka. This one is about a supposedly scandalous video of Peroutka addressing the League of the South, that was “uncovered” by a professor at Grove City College, a supposedly conservative Christian school. We have discussed this professor before. He seems to specialize in PC thought policing. If someone wants to write a real investigative report, maybe they can write one “exposing” Professor Throckmorton as the PC water carrier that he is despite teaching at a college known for it’s conservative and Christian beliefs, particularly its refusal, like Hillsdale College, to accept any federal funds. Does the Professor not realize that the PC forces he shills for hate all things Christian and conservative, and surely think Grove City is a bastion of racist, sexist, Christianist oppression?

Anyway, back to Peroutka. According to the second Raw Story article, it says Peroutka is a former board member of the League of the South. If this is true, it is news to me but I don’t necessarily doubt it. As for Peroutka saying he does not support Southern secession, this may be technically true, but I doubt it is the whole story. Unless Peroutka has had a complete change of heart, which I seriously doubt and would be very unfortunate if true, I know he believes in the right to secession and he believes Lincoln was wrong to invade the duly seceded South. What he may have said is that he doesn’t support Southern secession at this time and wants to give reforming the US a college try before resorting to it. This would be consistent with the belief of a lot of constitutionalists.

As for Perotka and race, the League has always been implicitly white as is conservatism in America as is constitutionalism as is the Tea Party, etc. but has recently become more explicitly white. That Peroutka specifically endorsed this new direction or was even aware of this change, I doubt. Peroutka has always used colorblind conservative language. In fact, I remember seeing a column he wrote fairly recently that used typical colorblind conservative language and thought to myself that there might be some League members who would object to the language. (With a lttle Google digging, here is a recent article he wrote dated July 15 that looks like an attempt to ward off his critics. It is essentially the same column as this one dated Jan 20 that I recalled. It seems to be inspired by the MLK holiday.)

So if the Raw Story PC storm trooper is really shocked that a former Constitution Party Presidential nominee and well known sympathizer of the League of the South has beliefs that are outside those of the tame “mainstream right,” then perhaps he needs to familiarize himself with the outside the mainstream right before he writes about it. Again, I’m not tuned into all the inner workings of the far left, but I would expect people of that persuasion to have beliefs and associations that are outside the mainstream left, so if I wrote an article about one of them I wouldn’t pretend to be shocked by such revelations or act as if such revelations only need to be trotted out in order to discredit someone. But of course, I’m intellectually honest, unlike PC hacks writing click bait hatchet jobs for liberal websites and PC peddling professors who “uncover” things in plain sight.

UK to Embrace Three-Parent Children

RT reports on British children being given healthy genes from a third parent. However, if parents lack healthy genes they should simply not have children! Producing a child from three people is short of GE, but it’s unnatural. How does a man of honour draw up his family tree in such a case? Outrageous. It would be better for the genetically infirm to pay a healthy couple (perhaps a poorer couple) to have a child, and to adopt it.

It’s noteworthy that in this case “capitalism” seems to be the ailment, greater regulation (against 3-parent children) the cure. Usually GE horror stories involve an oppressive government forcing it upon a people, but the greater danger appears to be the free market.

This “advancement” of a 3-parent child is also significant for its potential to lead to actual GMO designer babies, which is to say children who are not products of God but rather man. Nationalism, striving for the continuance of the ancient nation and its ancestral memories, might fail; but a similar struggle for the continuance of humanity might take its place this century. It might no longer be so relevant what nation one is from as simply whether a person is human or altered.

As with so many political “experiments”, Brits are used. As someone of mostly British descent, I wish the mighty would find another population to experiment on.

Mountain Roads…

The Trentadue brothers spent their vacation time as boys at West Virginia coal camps, hunting, swimming and all that follows. Checking a map, it appears these camps were at most 18 miles from the town my Great Great Grandfather built (with a couple friends, or businessmen anyway, working the nearest coalmine.) I was last there in the early ‘80s, to bury Great Grandfather, tour the old coal mines, and stay in my family’s mountain home for the one time in my life before it was sold (to Jerry Falwell no less.)
I met my Great Grandfather on the unfortunate business of burying my Grandfather, a comparatively young man, and I can tell you, no boy ever loved his Great Grandfather more than I. Anyway, I have a mythological sense of the people from that little neck of the woods, on both sides of the border. Great Grandfather, the last UVa football player to play 60 minutes (that might be legend) and captain of the team in the early Oughts of the 20th Century—fact, was the leading peach farmer in Virginia, having moved a little South, in the ‘50s. Upon a thunderstorm wiping out his bumper crop in the late 50s, a story my Uncle recounts as he was there to pick, Great Grandfather got an axe, chopped down each and every tree, and then went on a three day bender. He turned the fields over to cattle.

Died in his sleep, age 92, in the home his children were born in.  And we returned as noted.

Jesse Trentadue, the younger of the brothers who spent their summers in the coal camps nearby the central place of my being, has pursued an explanation for the death of his older brother for almost 20 years. He is an old man now.
Those familiar with the OKC bombing of 1995, know the story, of Kenneth Trentadue, expertly and poetically covered by William Grigg a few years back.

Jesse doesn’t take the burden of Brother lightly. He is haunted.

Anyway, if I invent a kinship in my own head with such romantic people in this deracinated time, who can really blame me?

News came today that a sympathetic judge in Utah will let Jesse move forward with his Freedom of Information Act case to uncover the videos the FBI possess in regards to the day of the bombing in Oklahoma City; videos that will show a second suspect and likely FBI informant.

In the age of complete surveillance that we, in our thing, are taught to hate, there remains an underlying message. One can yet acknowledge the Brave New World, and still fight like an ancestor to show the elites the inherent contradiction in their plans.

God’s speed, Jesse. You are a True Detective.

Christ Alone Movie: This Looks Interesting

This is a FaceBook post from Chuck Baldwin. Looks interesting.

A brand new documentary film has just be released by Golden Ratio Media. It features notable leaders such as Dr. Alan Keyes, Dr. Katherine Albrecht, Don McAlvany, Attorney Tim Baldwin, Ty Bollinger, George Hunt, and yours truly. The movie is the masterful production of filmmaker Jason Paul Charles. I had the privilege of seeing the premiere screening of this movie at the theater in Whitefish, Montana over the weekend.

The name of the film is “Christ Alone.” But don’t let the title fool you. This is anything but a typical “religious” movie. With the aid of state of the art graphics, a first-rate script, and powerful narration, the film delves deeply into many of the burning issues of the day that affect Christians and non-Christians alike. Anyone who watches–no matter what their faith–will be mesmerized by this film. Every pastor and church should watch “Christ Alone.” I highly recommend this film to my Facebook friends.

Here is the website where you can order the DVD of this fantastic film:

I haven’t seen this movie, and I have some concerns. As I said before, I’m skeptical that the “Natural Law” idea, especially as it is understood by most who use the term today, is a Biblical concept. But, based on the trailer, it incorporates the kind of esoterica that some in our sphere like, and it goes after usury and banking which is something modern Christians need to hear.

Jack Hunter and Rare.us Go PC on Border Crisis

This is pretty bad stuff. People worried about the border invasion are, of course, racists.

As I have said before, I like Jack Hunter, but he is unfortunately still trying to pay penance for his Southern Avenger days. No self-respecting conservative should make the charge of racism because it is a meaningless Trotskyite slur term that is meant to thoughtstop rather than illuminate. Perhaps what the town hall folks said was insensitive, but to use the r word is cheap. Since Jack likes wrestling, it’s the political equivalent of cheap heat. The issue of disease also misses the main point. The real issue is where are these kids parents. Kids from distant Central American countries don’t just show up in mass. This is part of a systematized program.

Neocon PC Hack Goes After J. Arthur Bloom

Sorry, this is a couple of weeks old now, but it just came to my attention. The Editor of The Washington Free Beacon, which specializes in neocon hit pieces, published this blog post attacking J. Arthur Bloom (a.k.a. Jordan Bloom).

Goldfarb criticizes a passage Bloom wrote as obvious “Jew-baiting.” While the passage is harshly critical of neocons, it doesn’t strike me as “clear as day” Jew-baiting. In fact, the references are kind of inside baseball so you have to know a little something to even get some of the references, “casino magnates” for example.

Note the distinction mentioned in the article between Freedom Conservatives and Liberty Conservatives. (Follow the link in the article also.) While I’m not sure how helpful the distinction really is, it seems to be an increasingly popular formulation that I suspect you will be hearing a lot about.
