Adios July 29, 2016

It is with all my heart, I say the word, “Adios.”  To God (A Dios) may you ever belong in this life, serving Him faithfully in the midst of the pains we all have in carrying our crosses, and in the immortal life, blessing Him eternally with all the celestial court.  The greater good of our souls is to be with God; and the greatest good, to be with God alone.

He who is with God alone, is never sad, unless for having offended God, and his sadness then consists in a profound but tranquil and peaceful humility and submission, after which he rises again in the Divine Goodness, by a sweet and perfect confidence, without chagrin or vexation.

He who is with God alone seeks only God, and because God is no less in tribulation than in prosperity, he remains in peace in times of adversity.  

He who is with God alone thinks often of Him in the midst of the occupations of this life.  He who is with God alone would be glad that everyone should know he wishes to serve God, and to be engaged in exercises suitable to keep him united to God.  

Live then entirely to God; desire only to please Him, and to please creatures only in Him; and for Him.  What greater blessing can I wish  you?  Thus, then, by this continual wish I make for your soul, I say: Adios.

To God let us belong, without end, without reserve, without measure, as He is ours forever.  May we always unite our little crosses with His great one.  

To God let us live, and to God without anything more, since out of Him, and without Him, we seek for nothing; no, not even for ourselves, who, indeed, out of Him, and without Him, are only true nothings.

Adios.  I desire for you the abundance of Divine Love, which is and will be forever the only good of our hearts, given to us only for Him, who has given His Heart entirely to us.

Let Jesus be our crown!  Let Mary be our hope!  I am, in the name of the Son and the Mother,

Sincerely yours,

Tantumfrogo Francisco de Sales

Islam doubles in US in Seven Years July 29, 2016

Picked this up from Mahound’s Paradise.  The percentage of Americans citing islam as their religion more than doubled in a mere seven years, outpacing any other religion save for militant atheism.  Not good, really not very good.  BAD:

Religious Numbers

Some commentary from Mahound:

The survey relied on similar interviews conducted in the two different time periods. Roughly, people were identified as what they said they were or what they want to be identified as, without going into what being a member of X religion actually meant to them, or whether they were “practicing,” etc.

I’m not surprised that the Christian numbers went down. Nor am I surprised that the Muslim numbers went up. But I was very much surprised that the Muslim numbers more than doubled in just seven years.

I was surprised that Mormonism went down. I had always assumed that the exponential growth of that group was unstoppable. [Nah. They have huge turnover.  Only so many people can be convinced to believe in unspeakable blasphemy (I’m “god!”) and magic underwear] I was also surprised that Judaism went up.

As you can see, the “Asian” religions – Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism – are now roughly tied in numbers, though Islam has moved ahead, almost certainly to stay. Hinduism went sharply up, though not as much as Islam, while Buddhism held the line………

…….obviously the momentum is with Islam. The proportion of Muslims in the United States more than doubled in seven years. I would assume the absolute numbers (given the increase in total population) came close to tripling in the last ten years.

Well, it’s been deliberate government policy, throughout the West, to import as many militant jihadists muslims as possible.  AND, this mass importation began under Bush ’43, so party has little to do with it.  The elites have decided multikulti is a positive good, it gives them their good progressive feelz, and if a few thousand bible-thumpers have to die for those feelz, so be it!  It does get a bit inconvenient, however, when the muslims attack the wrong sorts.  Bah!  No matter, never let a crisis go to waste, so it’s all good in the end.

If trends continue, in about 40-50 years, more Americans will be atheist or belong to a heathen religion than Christian.  And that’s ultimately what’s dooming this nation, and the entire West.  Western Civilization was built on a Christian (Catholic) basis and will not survive long apart from that basis.  There is no political solution for a fundamentally moral/cultural crisis.

Shock! Widely Cited Gun Violence Study Full of Holes…… July 29, 2016

……so to speak.

It’s always a very telling sign when a purported scientist  – although sociology is not a branch of science known for its rigorous methods – refuses to share his data with other scientists. It’s also very telling when the so-called scientific journal in which he published his highly politicized study admits they don’t really do peer-review, and just sort of trust the good intentions of their authors.

It’s even more telling when the media gets advance notice of the study’s publication, complete with background data sufficient to craft splashy, narrative-driving stories.  The global warming scam is impacting all science, rapidly turning it into an agenda-driven, politicized joke.  Which perhaps is a good thing, because we’re far bast needing to break the hold the cult of science has on the minds of far too many souls.

So, it turns out a “ground-breaking” international study that purported to show that societies with liberal gun laws had far more gun violence than those with more restrictive laws is highly dubious at best, and almost certainly yet another example of agendized scientific fraud.  I know you’re as shocked as I am:

A much-heralded and widely cited study of 171 countries over nearly a half century purports to show more guns mean more mass shootings, but critics say the report uses bad methodology in a way that rigs the results.

The study by Adam Lankford, a criminal justice professor at the University of Alabama, was published in the journal Violence and Victims in January and has been cited by media outlets — including The New Yorker, The Washington Postand Time magazine. But the study, formally published earlier this year after a draft was released in academic circles, has raised questions about what critics consider dubious methodology.

“The Lankford ‘study’ is nothing more than junk science disguised as research, and never should have been published in a responsible scholarly journal,” Florida State University criminology professor Gary Kleck told FoxNews.com.

The study, titled “Public Mass Shooters and Firearms: A Cross-National Study of 171 Countries,” concluded that “The United States and other nations with high firearm ownership rates may be particularly susceptible to future public mass shootings, even if they are relatively peaceful or mentally healthy according to other national indicators.”

Academic peers who have sought to examine the findings say Lankford refuses to share the data and details he used to support his findings.

Kleck and others say the obvious hazard in claiming to study 46 years’ worth of shootings in most of the world’s nations is that, while data may be easily found for U.S. shootings, compiling information for developing nations could be all but impossible.

“This would rig results in favor of finding a positive association between gun ownership and mass shootings,” Kleck said.

So get this: the Lankford guy admits neither he, nor any staff he had work on this project, spoke the language of most of the 171 countries supposedly studied.  At best, he relied on English-language reports, which, for most countries, would not be available.  He is very cagey about how he obtained his supposed data and refuses to share what he has.  Those are both huge red flags.

In fact, it appears his data was basically entirely based on NYPD research of mass shootings, which the NYPD itself only covers English-language sites.  Could it be that a heaping dose of liberal solipsism – I speak English, therefore, so must everyone else! – could have caused this scientician to make such an obvious error?

Regarding that gold-standard of peer-reviewed journals, Violence and Victims (sounds a bit dodgy from the top, doesn’t it?):

An associate editor of Violence and Victims, which published Lankford’s paper, told FoxNews.com that the journal does not see its role as that of a fact-checker.

“Journal editors generally trust the integrity of authors, and unless reviewers/referrers who are experts in the specific research area call attention to weaknesses in methodology or otherwise challenge findings, the results are not likely to be questioned,” Violence and Victims Associate Editor Edna Erez said.

Editor-in-Chief Roland Maiuro said that Lankford’s paper was approved by anonymous independent researchers. [That’s dubious practice]

“The manuscript was subject to blind review by two established researchers with expertise in the area of gun-related violence, critiqued, and revised according to the recommendations made in these reviews,” Maiuro said.

Kleck said a more rigorous and transparent peer review process was in order.

“No qualified scholar would accept work by a researcher who could not, or would not, even explain exactly how he measured his most important variable [mass shootings],” Kleck said.

Unless, of course, the goal isn’t scholarship, but political point scoring, driving the gun control narrative forward.  But who am I to judge the demi-gods of science who dictate to the little people what they should, nay must, believe?

Heretic.

 

Saint Pelosi: “Those stupid blue collar white male homophobic gun nut God-botherers sure don’t know their own interest!” July 29, 2016

Or words to that effect.  Not very long ago, the blue collar white demographic was the core of the democrat party.  How times change.  The transition from center-left to hard-left is complete.  Obama has somewhat transformed the nation, but he’s completely transformed the democrat party. There is no room for pro-lifers, conservative rural types (blue dogs), and anyone who visibly adheres to the Christian faith.

And oh, the preening arrogance.  These idiot blue collar whites don’t know what’s good for them!

WOODRUFF: I don’t think anyone is closer to the voters in Washington than members of the House of Representatives. You know that place very well. Right now, Donald Trump is doing much better than Hillary Clinton among white men, and particularly white men who have not attended college. How does Hillary Clinton counter that?

PELOSI: With an economic agenda to create jobs, good-paying jobs, increasing paychecks. The economic agenda is what is really — it’s about the economy, you know that statement, it’s not a cliché, it’s a fact. And I think that so many times, white non-college-educated white males have voted Republican, they’ve voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G’s, God being the woman’s right to choose.

That is softening. Some of these people will never be voting Democratic anyway, but I believe that with the turnout we expect to have, we will draw some of them in with our message, and enough other people to win the election.

Obama has presided over the worst US economy since before World War II.  That economy has hit blue-collar types the most, and key planks in the demonrat platform -endless immigration, massive deficit spending, pernicious regulation – have caused many blue-collar workers to be mired with stagnant wages for the last decade, if they’ve been lucky enough to keep their jobs at all.  Millions are so discouraged of finding a job they no longer bother to look, and so are invisible to the official unemployment statistics, which are so bowdlerized they are laughable.

I’d call the blue collar folks very smart, who are seeking some kind of alternative to the failed status quo – which applies to both parties, unfortunately.  Most R’s are just democrat-lite, or democrat agenda with tax cuts for the top income brackets and corporate welfare. There are some truly conservative Republicans, but never enough, it seems, to make a difference.

Notice the materialism inherent in the assumptions above: these idiots still cling to their God, guns, and “hatred of gays,” rather than vote in their economic interest.  This is basically a communist line of thought, only the material matters, spiritual/moral concerns are unimportant.

What is waiting in the wings is truly horrifying.  A speech Hillary gave last year to some unhinged women’s group, wherein she makes plain that the continuing leftist revolution cannot advance further without destroying religion (meaning Christianity):

Excerpts of that speech above were featured in the Remnant video yesterday, and formed sort of the centerpiece for why Catholics must oppose her by voting for Trump.  So you don’t have the agony of listening to Cankles for half an hour, the key bit:

“Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will,” she explained. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.”

Religious beliefs have to be changed! Quit clinging to your Bibles and guns, you hicks! And why won’t you vote for us?

Look, I fully comprehend folks who feel Hillary must be stopped at any cost. Some are voting for Trump strictly on that basis, others are more enthusiastic or less concerned about his past expressed beliefs.  I may well have to go that route myself, since I’ve had a communication from the Constitution Party of Texas and it seems Darrell Castle did not get on the ballot as a listed candidate, and even his making the list of approved write in candidates is in serious doubt.

I do agree with one thing: Hillary is pretty much a demon incarnate.
