Humanist Poison–and the Antidote

Image result for images of computer hooked up to human brain

I have to admit this news story distressed me. Let the headline speak: “New computers could delete thoughts without your knowledge, experts warn.” (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/delete-thoughts-read-your-mind-without-your-knowledge-neurotechnology-new-human-rights-laws-a7701661.html)

Yeah, I know–first you have to find some before you can delete ’em. But for those of us who still have thoughts, we are now warned about “machines that can read our thoughts,” brought to you by the exciting new field of neurotechnology.

This, they say, could lead to “brain hacking” and other “intrusions.” Like, you wake up in the morning and find yourself thinking, “Y’know, it really is time for a world government! And George Soros is just the one to run it! Man, I love Hillary Clinton!”

The horror, the horror…

We might even get computers that allow you to “type just by thinking.” That doesn’t promise much in the way of readability, let alone literary quality.

Anyway, it truly bothers me to contemplate foolish, power-hungry, sinners getting so much power. And you know they’ll pitch it to us the greatest thing since duct tape. Just wait’ll you see the sales job that they do on this. Don’t be the only one on your block who doesn’t have a computer interface!

The Antidote

God’s word is the antidote. He won’t just sit up there and watch the fun.

I found comfort today in Psalm 46. So here it is, King James Version.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved; he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

God is able to deal with nincompoops who try to rule the world.


Global Warming Zillionaires

Image result for images of al gore filthy rich

An international cabal organized by Al “$$$” Gore, the Energy Transitions Commission, wants the nations of the world to fork over $15 trillion (!) to fight imaginary Global Warming.

But don’t be alarmed. They propose to collect it in mere $600 billion increments over the next twenty years ( http://dailycaller.com/2017/04/25/al-gores-new-group-demands-15-trillion-to-fight-global-warming/)

Here in New Jersey their Global Warming has been freezing our butts off for the past few days. Never mind–“The Science is settled, there’s no debate,” etc.

How much of this enormous amount of money is going to stick to their fingers? “Global Warmin’ been very, very good to me!”  And what good things won’t get done because $15 trillion wasn’t available to do them?

If anybody out there is still taken in by this, I’m disappointed in you.

The truth is that a lot of already rich and powerful people want to become even more rich and powerful, want to install a global government with themselves as lords of the world, and have already been caught lying and cheating innumerable times, trying to make it happen. They haven’t been caught committing murder yet, but don’t rule that out for the future.

They’ve got governments, the Pope, all the big nooze media, the teachers’ unions, and just about all the colleges and universities running before their chariot, believing they’ll all be cut in for a piece of the action once the world government’s in place.

You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things…

We have recourse through prayer to an all-mighty and all-righteous God, the judge of all the earth. For the only one who has a right to rule it all is Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

These others are but robbers and usurpers. May repentance find them before judgment overtakes them. In Jesus’ name, amen.


Centrist? This Guy Is a Centrist?

Image result for images of german army in arc de triomphe

So, then, lemme see… Your name is Emmanuel Macron and you’re running for president of France: and you say you’re in favor of “globalism and European integration,” pretty much open borders, and you’ve said there’s no such thing as French culture, and “France is not a fixed identity” (http://www.vdare.com/posts/marine-le-pen-shows-the-voters-the-real-macron)

And the big fat stupid nooze media, one and all, are calling you a “centrist”?

I mean, is that what a centrist is–someone who wants to put his own country out of business? Words sure take on funny meanings, when the nooze media use ’em.

Running against him, Marine Le Pen, who believes in France and wants to keep it going, is described by the same nooze media as “far-right”–if you want your country to go on living, and not be erased, you’re far-right–with a “dark” vision, blah-blah-blah.

If M. Macron is a “centrist,” what do you have to say or do to be considered loony Left? Start up a petition asking the German army to invade again?

All of this is obviously aimed at the poor Jean Q. Publique who still believes what he reads in the papers and think it would be a good thing to have a centrist running the show, because centrists are, like, at the center, they don’t hit you with wacky, France-destroying policies.

My paternal grandfather and his sister, Great-Aunt Louise, were born in Paris and came to this country as children. I bear a French name. I am dismayed by what has been done to the homeland of my ancestors.

Think how France has suffered–Revolution; Napoleon; Franco-Prussian War; World War I; World War II–and all of it the product of blustering idiocy on the part of France’s leaders.

They mean to keep it up until there’s no more France.

God save us.


‘The March for Bullsh–er, Science’

Image result for images of mad scientists

Ooh-ooh! Today’s the March for Science [raspberry fanfare, please]! It’s set up to go with Earth Day! (http://bigstory.ap.org/article/c1cce65224164de8b5e10db11684fe1d/march-science-events-take-place-around-globe)

One good pagan holiday deserves another.

These quotes from the Associated Press article, I think, say it all.

“Scientists world wide left their labs”–oh, please–“to take to the streets Saturday along with students and research advocates”–who asked for the barf bag?–“pushing back against what they say are mounting attacks on science.” (Gag)

They’ve even got really clever signs that say, “Science is the Answer.”

“Scientists,” says the AP, speaking, I suppose, of all scientists, and not just left-wing socialist moron scientists, are “anxious about political and public rejection of established science [sic] such as climate change and the safety of vaccine immunizations.” Nope, no controversy there.

Science is a tool. It is a method. It is the creation of human minds and hands. It is not The Answer to bloody anything. What we are looking at here is idolatry. A substitute religion. A monstrous misuse of science.

I mean, are people blind? Do they honestly, truly not see what happens to places that are ruled by the kind of people who organized this march? Places like Detroit, Venezuela, North Korea. Come to New Jersey and see what the Climate Change and Earth Day Liberal Democrat crowd has done to it. I saw it done before my very eyes. Trust me! What libs do to where you live is not a bit nice. Or don’t trust me, and visit some of these places and see for yourself.

“Science” as exalted by these left-wing pin-heads is not science at all, but an idol. Its acolytes have already demanded sacrifices–by you, of course. Not from themselves. They’ll keep their private jets and mansions. You’ll lose your air conditioning.


Now That’s Reparations!

Image result for images of piles of money burning

The Student Government Assn. at Western Kentucky University has passed a resolution that free college tuition ought to be given to “black” students–I put “black” in quotes because they don’t define the term–as reparations for slavery, which ended 150 years ago ( https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/kentucky/articles/2017-04-21/wku-student-government-calls-for-free-tuition-as-reparations ).

And by the way–what kind of reward is a college “education” that blows four or five years of your life to give you a bachelor’s degree in Nothing Studies?

Don’t you just love liberals? They give away other people’s hard-earned money so they can feel good about themselves. You don’t see them ponying up any of their own money.

Maybe I ought to demand reparations from Italy: the Romans enslaved my ancestors. With the interest accruing over 2,000 years, that ought to be a pretty hefty wad of dough.

Another thing that makes liberals feel righteous is stirring up strife among people who would otherwise be at peace with one another. The last thing they want is racial harmony. It would be a calamity for them.

Anyway, there you have it–more proof that America has too many colleges and universities, with way too many people in them, way too much money poured into it, and no longer serves any constructive purpose whatsoever.

Cut the funding now. These ninnies on the WKU Student Government panel need to be out in the real world, working and trying to support themselves. It might teach them a thing or two about cavalierly slinging around other people’s money to indulge a political delusion.


… And It Turned Around and Bit Them

Image result for images of censorship

This month, this humble blog has lost upwards of 20% of its reader traffic–which I’ve put down to referrals from Facebook suddenly drying up for no reason I can discover.

But the Chicago Tribune has lost a lot of traffic, too; and they’re saying it’s because of Facebook censoring much of their content as “fake news” ( http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/04/19/chicago-tribune-accuses-facebook-fake-news-killing-web-traffic/). So it turns out I’m not the only one.

I’ve been reading reports from various media sources, and some of them are saying that Facebook has censored links to major conservative news sites, like Drudge and Breitbart, and is also experimenting with some means of flagging certain items as “satire,” and hence not to be believed. Killjoys.

Here we link to articles in Drudge or Breitbart rather often, and I’ve been known to cook up a satirical piece now and then. Well, all right–a bit more than now and then.

But does this explain where all my referrals have disappeared to? I don’t know: I don’t understand computer stuff well enough to make sense of these reports.

I must admit, though, to a certain satisfaction in seeing big fat liberal news media complaining that now their stuff is getting censored, too. Like, who was it that wanted all this censorship in the first place? Who was doing the loudest hissing and moaning about “fake news”? They asked for censorship, they got it, and it turned around and bit them. (Not a dry eye in the house!)

None of which gets my referrals back, or restores my viewership to what it had been for five months in a row until this month came along.

If any of you out there are Facebook-savvy, please enlighten us.


You Need to Know the Heimlich Maneuver

Image result for images of heimlich maneuver

We keep God busy, watching over us. But He has given us some extremely useful resources.

Sometimes people choke to death; but the Heimlich maneuver can save a choking victim’s life.

Once upon a time I had an early evening softball game, so Patty sat down to eat supper alone. By and by, I came home. And I had only just come in when she began to choke–violently. By God’s grace, I remembered the Heimlich maneuver, remembered reading about it in Reader’s Digest years before. I had never done it before, but I did it then. And that wad of fried rice and bean sprouts shot out like a cannonball. It was a narrow escape. Gives me the willies, to think back on it. If I’d been five minutes later coming home–and you know how guys stick around and gab after a softball game–I would have been too late. But by God’s providence, I wasn’t.

Linda has sent us an article on how to perform the Heimlich maneuver on yourself, when there’s no one there to do it for you ( https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/04/19/how-to-perform-the-heimlich-maneuver-on-yourself/ ). This is a really good thing to know, so read the article. The knowledge you acquire just might save your life someday.


Instead of Your Final Exam–Protest!

Image result for images of idiot college students

The latest college howler comes from Arizona State University, where students are being given credit for their final exams if they organize an “anti-Trump protest” instead of taking the test ( https://heatst.com/culture-wars/arizona-state-u-lets-students-organize-anti-trump-protest-instead-of-taking-final-exam/ ).

Not that it matters. The professor who’s doing this is a professor of “Global Politics of Human Rights.” Whatever the hell that is. “Hire me right away! I’ve got a degree in Global Politics of Human Rights!”

At least one Women and Gender Studies student–hey, can I please wake up now?–joined the protest, even though she wasn’t in the professor’s class.

Does even the least shred of doubt remain, that these colleges and universities are incontinently wasting time and money on a scale hitherto only seen in government? Is there any sane reason for continuing to pump public money into these institutions? Is there even any half-baked silly reason to continue to send young people there?

All rhetorical questions, of course.

I almost wonder what a final exam would look like, in Global Politics of Human Rights, and what kind of blather you would have to spew to pass it. But I’m not sure I’d be up to actually looking at it.

I estimate at least 90% of our country’s higher education is sheer waste and pure twaddle. Very little that is good can happen here until we get rid of it.

Any self-respecting nation would have already done so.


Fake News from Fake Writers

As if fake news weren’t bad enough, now we’ve got to deal with fake news written by fake people.

The Huffington Post has had to remove an April 13 post on its blog by–purportedly–an “activist and feminist” who is working for her master’s degree in philosophy, surely one of the great thinkers of our time, advocating that white men be formally stripped of their right to vote because it’s all their fault that Donald Trump got to be president instead of Hillary Clinton, and also Brexit is their fault, too… and not letting them vote anymore, see, that would make it way easier for progressives to win elections… How do you spell the sound a raspberry makes?

Anyhow, HuffPo had to delete the post because its author “appears not to exist” ( http://www.huffingtonpost.co.za/shelley-garland/could-it-be-time-to-deny-white-men-the-franchise_a_22036640/ ). Dontcha hate it when that happens?

If a fictional person self-identifies as real, does that mean he, she, it, whatevuh, is real? Isn’t this yet another kind of discrimination–real-ism?


Dem: Political Speech Must Be Controlled

Image result for images of suppression of free speech

Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech…”  –The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States

The former chair of the Federal Election Commission, Ann Ravel, has declared that “political speech must be controlled on social media” ( https://heatst.com/politics/former-fec-chairwoman-calls-for-regulations-of-political-speech-on-the-internet/ ).

She has attributed opposition to her scheme to “misogyny.” Well, Ann, your idea would suck just as much if you were a man.

The Constitution is the law of the land, written in language that just about anybody can understand. But we all know what Democrats and other libs think of that whole “law of the land” business. Check out their position on immigration laws.

Gee, they’d sure be unhappy if Donald Trump ever proposed controlling political speech from his end of the stick. But we all know their position on hypocrisy, too: it’s only hypocrisy when someone else does it.

If we don’t exercise and defend our freedoms, there are a lot of people who’d be only too glad to take them away from us.

They must never, ever again be allowed to take power in this country.
