A Tribute to Our Navy & Marine Fighter Pilots

I wish I’d thought of posting this for Memorial Day. But that wicked damnable piffle yesterday about the U.S. Navy focusing on “safe space” and “right pronouns” forced me to remember the real Navy that my father joined in World War II, to protect America from her enemies and overcome them.

O God our Lord! What have we come to?

This video was created as a tribute to our Navy and Marine fliers, and their sacrifices on behalf of their country. The haunting musical theme, Away He Went, comes from a 1960 movie about the life of Admiral Halsey, The Gallant Hours.

God help us, we should be convulsed with shame for what we’ve allowed to be done to our country.

‘So What Are They Gonna Do About It?’ (2017)

I like to run this piece around graduation time each year, as proof that normal people can win if they stand up to the crazies.

So What Are They Gonna Do About It?

“School officials” at Beaver High School, Pennsylvania, forbade the valedictorian from invoking the name of Jesus Christ. (“It’s against the law!” Oh, please: what law?) She praised Him anyway, and the audience gave her a long round of applause.

As it turned out, there was nothing the idiot “school officials” could do about it.

They want to throw you in jail for using “incorrect pronouns.”

They are evil. They are despicable. And if we ever found the courage to stand up to them, we’d wonder how we ever permitted these fools to frighten us.

Glad She’s On Our Side!

There are still some strong characters up on Capitol Hill who fight for America–who fight for us. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) is one of then. Listen as she hews the legs out from under The Regime’s new Disinformation Governance Board–already widely known by its Orwellian label, “the Ministry of Truth.”

I stand up and cheer! Go get ’em, Lauren! Let’s get that Republican landslide in November so we can defund the censors, reconnect the Keystone Pipeline, and impeach those dastards who have already done such serious harm to our country.

I hope the rest of the House now understands what defending America means.

‘R.I.P. Phyllis Schlafly… American Hero’ (2016)

See the source image

Phyllis Schlafly died in 2016 at the age of 92, after a long life of service to her country–which is to say, service that benefited us all.

R.I.P. Phyllis Schlafly… American Hero

She was best known for single-handedly raising up the opposition that defeated the so-called “Equal Rights Amendment,” which at the time (1972) needed only three more states for passage. God only knew what mischief that would have led to–but Phyllis Schlafly had a pretty good idea of it. She was the first to see through the euphemism.

I interviewed her in 2009. I didn’t know she was recovering from a serious injury at the time, or I never would have bothered her. But her manner was so gracious, you’d never guess she was in pain.

God does raise up heroes for us. And one of them was Phyllis Schlafly. For whom we give God thanks.

Can Public Education Be Saved?

Protests at Springfield school board meeting over diversity training

My answer is, “Why bother?”

A reader has challenged my assertion that public education is deeply and irreparably tainted by anti-Christian leftism and that our only meaningful, effective recourse is to pull our children out of it. He has suggested that many more Christians should run for school board seats and, when elected, clean up the mess.

If only.

Let’s say you had a Christian school board. What would you be up against? State and federal Title This and Title That–and if you don’t comply, they’ll pull your funding… for starters. Teachers’ unions–for all practical purposes, communists. The courts: any atheist who sues you for mentioning Christmas can easily find an anti-Christian judge to lay some hurt on you. The ACLU is always just around the corner, waiting to pounce.

Forget about hiring Christian teachers: there aren’t that many of them, the teachers’ colleges weed them out.

In the long run, if you keep bucking the system, some government agency or other will abolish your board and take over the operation of your school district.

Well, then–shouldn’t we elect Christians to replace this army of government functionaries who make “education” what it is today?

Electing Christians–what about the millions of Americans who say they’re Christians but have no idea what they’re talking about? I mean Christians who have been “educated” by public schools and universities and have not grown out of it (in my case, that took 30 years).

“Saving” public education would require herculean efforts going on for years and years, fights wiith the teachers’ unions that would make the Trojan War look like a food fight in a cafeteria, fights with everybody else–and again, why bother?

There are more and more ways to get a quality education at home, more and more resources that grow more affordable, and better, every year.

How could any parents, educating their own children whom they love, possibly do a worse job than public school wackos committed to teaching Critical Race Theory, transgender, and anti-American pseudo-history?

Unless, of course, you want your kids to “learn” that schiff…

‘Three Chess Moves Ahead’

Douglas Wilson | Desiring God

Doug Wilson: “Don’t take the bait!”

(Thanks to Susan for this.)

Doug Wilson has a pithy essay, Three Chess Moves Ahead (https://dougwils.com/books-and-culture/s7-engaging-the-culture/three-chess-moves-ahead.html) in which he warns of an active plot to subvert and take over our country.

It’s not a conspiracy theory when you can point to real people doing real things, bad things, and say “See what they’re doing!”

He thinks a certain element of our country’s, er, “leadership” is looking to pick a fight with the American people, to goad us into some ill-advised, dramatic but ineffective actions which will them justify “a draconian overreaction on stilts and steroids.” Sort of like the Jan. 6 “insurrection” at the capitol. They’re going out of their way to provoke us, he says, so they can then crush us. His advice, repeated often: “Don’t take the bait.”

Wilson thinks it would be a very great deal harder to cheat in the midterm elections than in the presidential election, and that the 2022 midterms our our best hope of taking back our country. But we have to get there safely first. Democrats will be highly motivated to do things to upset the midterms.

It’s sort of a long essay, with a lot of quotable quotes, and well worth reading.

Let me know what you think of it.

‘The Doctrine of Despair’ (2018)

See the source image

This was bad when I wrote about it in 2018, and it got a lot worse after the 2020 travesty of an election. That really crushed America.

Lately I found myself wondering, though–“Is this what God decided we needed–social chaos, a stolen election, a freakin’ pandemic–to wake us up? Could anything less have stirred us off our fainting couch?”

The Doctrine of Despair

Armed with the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God, we must never give in–never, never, never. If it takes 100 years to get our country back, then we must fight for it–and pray for it–every day of those hundred years.

Our generation saw the fall and extinction of the Soviet Union. We grew up believing that would never happen, but it did. And quick, too!

Leftism in America will fail.

It would be a shame to surrender to such pipsqueaks.

A Man Talking Sense

Armstrong Williams, Author at The Washington Informer

Armstrong Williams

Hmm… a man is a woman with a penis, a woman is a man with a vagina, 2+2 doesn’t equal 4 anymore, all white people are born racists…

The other day, Armstrong Williams talked sense about all this. I hope he hasn’t been arrested.

https://townhall.com/columnists/armstrongwilliams/2021/07/15/is-this-normal-n2592538

“We are quickly being pushed,” he wrote, “by the Democratic Party and their cronies in the mainstream [sic] media and in big tech towards a society that does not have standards…”

Bullseye.

In recent years the wrecking ball has been “gay rights” followed by transgender mania; and of course “race” is always an excuse to wreck society. The Left homes in on micro-minorities and puts them on high pedestals–and woe to anyone who won’t bow down!

I think Mr. Williams understands that this is war. Us vs. Far Left Crazy–and the loser dies.

I can’t even imagine the kind of society those wackos want to impose on us. Pray we never have to find out.

 

Facebook Bites America’s Ankles

Anti-fascist demonstrators gathered in protest at an alt-right rally in Portland, Ore., last year.

But these, of course, are not “extremists…”

Even as we celebrate our freedoms on Independence Day, Big Tech oligarchs are trying to erase them.

Lately Facebook has featured pop-up warnings: like, “You may have been exposed to harmful extremism” (like it was DDT or something), or “Are you concerned that someone you know is becoming an extremist?” (https://www.foxnews.com/media/facebook-warns-users-have-been-exposed-harmful-extremists)

Well… yeah! You guys, for starters. I’m plenty worried about you.

Facebook urges users to “get advice from people who escaped violent extremist groups” and offers a link to a bunch of leftids called “Life After Hate,” who claim “to help people leave far-right groups.” Sheesh.

Let me get off a letter to Facebook while I think of it–because it so happens I do know somebody who seems to be becoming an extremist.

“Dear Facebook–I am very concerned for my friend Joe Biden, who has spent an awful lot of time with Chinese Communist Party members–and we all know who’s the most violent gang of extremists on the planet, don’t we? Yup, that would be the CCP, the most prolific mass murderers in all of human history. But Joe thinks they’re swell! And contacting Life After Hate won’t help because they think communism’s groovy, too.

“How can I get Joe back onto the path of sanity? Please advise!”

But I won’t hold my breath waiting for an answer.

Black Doctor Slams ‘Critical Race Theory’

A doctor with two medical degrees, who happens to be black, showed up at a school board meeting in Illinois recently to denounce the teaching of “critical race theory” (https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/06/mustsee_tv_black_medical_professional_denounces_crt_at_school_board_meeting.html). We are not giving his name, nor the town he lives in, because we don’t want Democrat trolls attacking him, his patients, or his property.

CRT, he said, is “teaching kids to hate each other.” He pooh-poohed the claim that as a black man, he is by definition oppressed. “How do I have two medical degrees and I’m sitting here oppressed?

“Protect our children! Critical race theory is B.S.”

The video of his speech is embedded in the American Thinker article.

Go ahead, leftids! Go ahead and try to defend your precious CRT–which nearly everyone in America absolutely hates. Nail your a**es to CRT and see where you end up. Go ahead–I dare you.
