Minneapolis: Tower of Babble

Minneapolis protests: Night of violence sees George Floyd ...

“Mostly peaceful,” right?

Is this the biggest load of crap you’ve ever heard, or what?

The city council of Minneapolis plans to replace police with a “community-led public safety system” involving “healers [?], elders [?], youth, artists, and organizers” who will “lead a deep community engagement on race and public safety” that’s gonna feature “transformative justice [?] in partnerships informed by the needs of every block in our city,” blah-blah-blah (https://www.dailywire.com/news/absurd-crazy-ridiculous-black-leaders-slam-minneapolis-city-councils-plan-to-defund-the-police).

What does any of this mean?

“Black leaders” whose neighborhoods have suffered most from rioting by “mostly peaceful protesters,” as the nooze and Democrat narrative has it, have called the city’s plans “absurd, crazy, ridiculous, egregious.” And those are the nice things they say about it.

On the whole, it seems like a good time to move out of Minneapolis.


Democrats and Funerals

A great opportunity for a political rally!

It seems the only way you can generate a crowd for a Democrat political rally is to stage it as a funeral. Remember Paul Wellstone’s funeral, a couple of years back? What a spectacle that was.

This week they did it again at Congressman John Lewis’ funeral, with former President *Batteries Not Included, supposedly there to deliver a eulogy, diving head-first into 2020 politics (https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/31/stephen-miller-obamas-comments-at-lewis-funeral-totally-disconnected-from-reality-389386).

Obama lashed out at President Donald Trump, as usual, called the legislative filibuster “a Jim Crow relic,” demanded “automatic” voter registration and the creation of a national holiday for Election Day, and spewed out the customary blather about “suppressing” the minority vote and “attacks on our democracy.”

I would never say it at a funeral, but I think too many people vote and that the voting age ought to be raised to 50.

To restate the obvious, the United States is not a “democracy.” It is a constitutional republic founded on the principal that government itself is a necessary evil whose power must be vigorously limited. Otherwise it’ll just devour everything.

And, as Mark Simone asked on the radio today, how come you aren’t allowed to fill up a church for a service, but it’s okay to jam ’em all in for a Democrat funeral?

God help us if we ever let these people get back into power. Throughout history, “democracy” will either self-destruct or deteriorate into tyranny. It never fails.

Our country’s founders knew that. I wish we did.


My Newswithviews Column, July 30 (‘The “Socialization” Scam’)

Don’t you wish you had a nickel for every time you heard someone say that public schooling is necessary for “socialization”?

The ‘Socialization’ Scam

Incredibly, a hundred years ago, it was the teachers’ unions who stood up to the crackpot “education” theorists and protected America from “educational” experiments–like training kids to hate their country, just to name one of the more popular ones that’s still ongoing. How times change.

Again I ask: are we sure we want our kids back in public school?

 


Macron’s Throne (Yeah, I Said ‘Throne’)

A lot of people have forgotten that Emmanuel “I feel pretty” Macron, the president of France, actually has a throne.

The French elect a president to be a king. Then they want to cut ...

Somehow I don’t think this is quite Vive la Republique.

Can you imagine the howl that would go up if Donald Trump ever plunked his butt down on a throne? Maybe he should do it, just to drive leftids crazy. Er, crazier.

It just goes to show you you can put a dummy on a throne and it’s still a dummy.


‘The United States of Socialism’

United States of Socialism: Who's Behind It. Why It's Evil. How to ...

Here’s my review of Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, The United States of Socialism.

https://chalcedon.edu/resources/articles/the-united-states-of-socialism-by-dinesh-dsouza-a-book-review

It’s really something, how “helping the poor” always leaves “the poor” just as badly off as ever, while big-name socialists grow fabulously wealthy. But then virtually everything these people do is a contradiction in terms.

They’re Intellectuals, but their program is just plain stupid and has never been anything but a failure, anywhere. They’re “nicer” than capitalists–but who’s more likely to use violence to crush dissenting views?

D’Souza does a thorough job of exposing these hypocrites and thieves for what they are and always have been.

If this information doesn’t convince you that America needs serious re-Christianizing, I don’t know what will.


The ‘Down With White People’ Party

Puppet Strings Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | Shutterstock

“Politico” reports that the Democrat National Committee is drafting a platform which blames white people for all the problems of America: in 80 pages so far, “whites” are denounced 15 times (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/07/24/nolte-draft-dnc-platform-declares-white-americans-too-rich-too-privileged-and-too-evil/?fbclid=IwAR2Lcz8gm3BaJ4hpvwmiZRZ-GeR_xcevb4vFWo4l7zlzkUmKtw7xxeUE-Gk).

Well, heck! It’s all that “Systemic Racism” jazz. You know–if you’re white, you’re born guilty, you’re just a no-good racist no matter what you do or say–

And the rich white liberals who own the government must punish you!

See, white people are too rich, too prosperous, and it’s all at the poor abused minorities’ expense: in fact, white people are “holding our country back” from universal prosperity that would just naturally occur if we obeyed the rich white liberals who govern us.

I do not consent to be blamed for anything done by anyone who isn’t me. I do not consent to be punished for it. I do not consent to be labeled a “racist.” And as long as everything and everybody is irredeemably racist, 100% stuck with it–well, then, I don’t care. I just don’t care about it anymore.

Why do we let these Far Left pin-heads push us around?


‘Our Immoral and Unrighteous Government’ (2014)

When I wrote this in 2014, America had yet to learn how rotten with corruption the Obama administration was; and although out of power now, it continues to pump its poisons into us.

Our Immoral and Unrighteous Government

They literally don’t care what happens to the country as long as they come out on top.

Forbid it, almighty God. These people are profoundly evil.


Lying to the Pollsters

The Polls Are Probably Exaggerating Biden's Lead | Washington Monthly

The polls are rigged. Ignore them.

Every day we’re bombarded with opinion polls. We already know that the nooze organizations that run the polls want them to give results highly favorable to their beloved Democrat Party. So they rig the polls. They cheat.

But even if they weren’t loading the polls to favor Democrats, an important study by the Environmental Voter Project has discovered something that shouldn’t surprise us at all (https://www.campaignsandelections.com/campaign-insider/voters-are-lying-to-us-here-s-why-it-could-be-helpful).

People lie to pollsters. Indeed, 78 percent “over-reported their actual voting histories,” mostly because they’re ashamed to admit they often fail to vote. Moreover, the study found, “respondents answer in a way they think will be viewed favorably by others.”

Ya think?

Other reasons for people to lie to pollsters spring immediately to mind. Maybe they’re afraid a “wrong” answer will somehow be punished. Maybe they know the pollsters want a certain kind of answer and so they might as well give it to them.

Meanwhile, polls have evolved from a not very reliable means of trying to predict the outcome of an election… to an effort to influence that outcome. Hence we get treated to nonsense like Biden beating Trump by 15 points, Hillary Clinton has a 99% chance of winning, and, lately, a weird finding that most Americans now believe their country is a racist country. Which merely reflects what people have every reason to suspect is “the right answer” which you’d better give or else.

So we shouldn’t pay attention to the polls. Neither the pollsters nor the people they poll are being honest.

Don’t reward the corrupt, dishonest nooze media by allowing Democrats to be elected.

For Democrats read Far Left Crazy socialist tyrants in waiting.

You’d think their actions during the coronavirus panic would have surely taught us that.


The Spirit of Caleb

Tiny grasshoppers on the top of a morning glory leaf at first ...

Are we really just grasshoppers?

You’ll remember from the Bible how the children of Israel, having reached the border of the Promised Land, sent spies to find out what it was like (Numbers, Chapter 13).

The spies came back loaded with fruit and other good things. It’s a land flowing with milk and honey, all right, they reported–but just forget about taking it! (Verses 28-32) Because it’s just chuck full of bad guys, and giants, and impregnable walled cities, and the Amalekites are waiting to crush us… What was God thinking of, to send us here? Like, man, we are just grasshoppers, compared to those people! (v. 33)

But one of those spies was Caleb. “And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it” (v. 30).

Caleb trusted in God, and in God’s promises. God had promised to give the land to Israel. Caleb believed Him. He wasn’t scared of walled cities, giants, or Amalekites. To Caleb they were already slated for destruction: for the Lord had said so.

Do we need some of Caleb’s spirit shot into our veins, or what? We see Far Left Crazy running wild in the streets, and alleged polls showing Dozy Joe up 15 points–but are we supposed to lose heart? Give up? I surrender, BLM–please eat me last!

It’s not too late to put our trust in God and get to work like we mean it. Repent our sins and get busy!


My Newswithviews Column, July 23 (‘Robbed of Their Adulthood’)

Would you believe it? I’ve still got internet access! Couldn’t do Newswithviews last week because I had virtually no access.

So here it is–and I’ve noticed, this week, that several conservative commentators agree with me on this.

Robbed of Their Adulthood

What liberals say about “minorities” is more insulting from anything you hear from anybody else.

They must want that free stuff awful bad, to put up with it.
