Pup Takes on Ferocious Carrot

Imagine you’re a little white puppy confronted by a fierce, untamed carrot. Would you be up to the challenge? Would you be able to show that carrot who’s boss? As humans, we can always threaten the carrot with boiling or shredding; but a puppy doesn’t have those options. All he can do is–well, you’ll see.


‘The Temptation’ Marches On

Image result for images of lone warrior on horseback

I’ve typed up another 3,000+ words of The Temptation (Book No. 11 in my Bell Mountain series), and I am too pooped to pop. But I have to present these books in sets of four or five chapters at a time so that Susan can edit them. Just in case I take a wrong turn somewhere, I don’t want to have to find out after I’ve written the whole thing.

Boss Redegger the crime baron has returned, Lord Orth has to choose which way to go when both ways seem right, and there’s a lot going on in Old Obann (not a nice place). And Wytt has his hands full, trying to protect stupid humans…

I love doing this, and to God be the glory. He gives me these stories; I just do my best to write them down.


How Wacko Dems Will Reach Out to America

See how much of this you can take.

So the Democrat “strategist” comes on Tucker Carlson’s show to proclaim, “Democrats are going to run on American values.” Oh, please. Usually they run over American values.

But what “American values” is he talking about? Open borders? Transgenderism? Race war? No. He’s talking about “jobs.” And he says more immigration is going to create more jobs in America. He is not able to explain how importing millions more poor people will do that. He also seems to be suggesting that it’s not just poor people, but “engineers and scientists” who are sneaking over the border illegally.

Dude! I challenge you or any other Democrat to name a single mainstream American value that you and your friends do not despise. You may give lip service, for example, to Christianity–but we see you promoting abortion, sodomy, disregard for law, class warfare, etc. You’re right out there in the open, wrecking our culture and writing us off as deplorables. We know who you are and what you want. That’s why Donald Trump is president.

I just can’t wait to see how these weirdos reach out to America.


Fake News, 1938

Fake news has a long and shameful history. Our 21st century nooze media didn’t invent it.

The 1930s were the heyday of unreliable, dishonest, distorted, suppressed, and invented news. Walter Duranty of The New York Times won a Pulitzer Prize for his brazen fictions about life in Josef Stalin’s workers’ paradise. But for real, thorough-going journalistic quackery, the British newspapers took the cake.

As Britain’s ruling class, throughout the 1930s, sought to appease and butter up Adolf Hitler at all costs, and to shirk their duty to defend their country, and to delude themselves into thinking Hitler was a nice man who only wanted what was reasonable and good, the higher-ups at the British papers did everything they could–including telling outright lies–to foster this illusion and deceive the British public.

Mind you, it wasn’t the reporters. The foreign correspondents in Berlin, Vienna, Rome, and elsewhere faithfully sent their editors accurate reports of developments in Europe. These the editors rewrote to mask the truth, or else simply discarded. As the Nazi regime grew in evil, so grew the editors and publishers in mendacity.

One particular incident really stands out.

In 1938 the arch-appeaser, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, bragged about securing “peace in our time” by sacrificing “a faraway country,” Czechoslovakia, to Hitler. This came on the heels of a long series of concessions to the Nazis, all of which made Hitler stronger and the western democracies weaker. It came rather close to treason.

Unable to stomach the dishonor of the government’s cowardly betrayal of an ally, Alfred Duff Cooper resigned as First Lord of the Admiralty. His resignation speech was a ringing denunciation of Chamberlain’s actions, and a full house at Parliament was strongly moved by it.

So the London Times reporter on the scene reported. Accurately, as a good reporter should.

But The Times’ editor-in-chief, Geoffrey Dawson, hand in glove with Chamberlain in all attempts to surrender to Hitler, didn’t like that report at all. So he threw it away, wrote a false account of Cooper’s speech going over like a lead balloon… and signed the reporter’s name to it! Appalled by his editor’s chicanery, the reporter resigned. And faced with a storm of criticism over the grossly inaccurate account that had appeared in his paper, Dawson could only pretend he didn’t know how that had gotten published.

In their decade-long campaign of lying and distortion, the British news media had a share in the responsibility for the millions of lives snuffed out in World War II. There were countless opportunities to stop Hitler before it was too late to prevent war. Thanks in part to the noozies, those opportunities were allowed to pass away, one after the other.

This is the example being followed today by our own Big Media.

God help us. Amen.

‘Gather at the River’ (Burl Ives)

I can never hear this beloved, old-fashioned hymn without thinking of my Uncle Bernie, a wonderful, big-hearted man who late in life finally achieved his dream of being ordained as a minister in the Methodist Church. This hymn was one of his favorites–Shall We Gather at the River, sung by Burl Ives.

Sorry I’m late–wanted to get my bike ride in before it rained.


Sleepy Kittens & Pups

Let’s see, kittens and puppies who are just so sleepy, they can’t help toppling over… Gee, I wonder what would happen if you were real, real tired when you played this video, getting kind of groggy, and you sat there and watched these babiesssss……zzzzzzzzz


Video Treat: The Traveling Octopus

[I yield to Mr. Nature–just too worn-out to cover any more news today.]

Jambo, Mr. Nature here, with more of God’s stuff for you to enjoy.

Here we have an octopus who takes advantage of low tide to creep out of the water and crawl around the land, hunting tasty crabs. These are intelligent and versatile animals, and we’re still a ways from knowing what they’re capable of doing. I heard of an octopus playing Strat-O-Matic baseball, but I’m not inclined to believe it.


Are You Ready to Receive the Mark?

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.   –Revelation 13:16-17

A software design company has offered to implant microchips in the hands of its employees (http://kstp.com/news/wisconsin-company-to-implant-microchips-in-employees-three-square-market/4549459/), and over 50 employees have already consented.

Displaying a total absence of thought, the CEO said, “It’s the next thing that’s inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it.” The shallowness of that comment takes one’s breath away. Talk about big things done for little reasons…

Anyhow, the microchip is supposed to make life super-easy. “I’ll hold my hand up,” said the CEO, “just like my cell phone, and it’ll pay for my product.” ‘Cause it’s just so unbearably strenuous to take some cash out of a wallet.

And best of all, we have his word for it that the chips will be “both encrypted and secure.” Uh-huh. Really, aren’t we a bit too old to believe in fairy tales?

Someday the whole world is going to discover that computerization ain’t quite what it’s cracked up to be. And a lot of people are going to be really, really mad that they were led so far down the garden path.


It’s Personal!

How many times have we encountered this? “My grandson that I really, really love was so unhappy because he couldn’t marry his boyfriend; but now he can, and he’s just so happy! And I’m happy that he’s happy, so I’m all in favor of gay marriage and that’s why I have the Rainbow Flag on my lawn…”?

Moral standards that are handed down by God, and have stood unchanged for thousands of years, must quickly give way–because someone is “unhappy” with them. Naturally, we want our loved ones to be “happy.”

Even if we don’t quite know what the word means, anymore.

The Bible believes in happiness. “Happy is that people, that is in such a case; yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 144:15). “[H]e that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he” (Proverbs 14:21). But the word is never used to describe sexual anarchy.

Still, for the sake of whatever “happiness” is, people with blinding speed discard the moral code in which they were raised. There was once a baby shower here, in front of this apartment building, complete with DJ and free beer, to celebrate an impending out-of-wedlock birth. The mother-to-be, who had not yet divorced her husband, was having the baby by her shiftless, no-good boyfriend. And the yard was full of “happy” people “celebrating” the event which, at one time in their lives, they would have viewed as a moral calamity. Mr. Boyfriend, by the way, stuck around long enough to beget another child by this woman, then fled the scene. Leaving the baby strapped into a car seat, Mommy worked full-time while Mr. Boyfriend played video games and gambled.

But they were “happy” for a while.

Are God’s laws bad because, if we obey them, they keep us out of messes like this? Or are they just bad because God doesn’t like us to be “happy”?

But, hey, well, if we’re gonna trust other sinners, if we’re gonna trust What’s Happenin’ Now, instead of trusting God… God doesn’t know what’s best for us, but Bill Nye the Science Guy does. Anything to be “happy”–right?
