Millions of Illegal Immigrant Votes Probably Cast in the 2008, 2012 Presidential Elections June 22, 2017

Horrifying, but I’m quite certain this is the case.  Another post on a quite different topic in an unrelated publication noted the massive shift the democrat party underwent on immigration between the mid-2000s and today.  10-12 years ago, major factions in the demonrat party were in favor of limitations on immigration and controlling the southern border – by fence or whatever means.  But since then, the party has embraced the same hard, absolutist position on totally unconstrained illegal immigration as the Catholic episcopate – a few exceptions aside – has.  They have done so for wholly political reasons, as dems have known for 20 years that demographics among the native-born population (and especially the white population) were entirely against them.  Politics correlates very strongly within families, and core members of the dem constituency were not having babies, while conservatives were.  By 2040 without massive changes to the American electorate through immigration, the Dems would be a permanent minority party at the national level.

So, much as Euro elites have done, when the electorate did not correspond to their ambition, leftist elites decided to find a new electorate rather than reconsider their failed religious beliefs.  It seems this effort has been a big success, as a recent report has assessed that as many as 6 million illegal aliens voted in the 2008 presidential election  – a huge factor, but not quite enough to, by themselves, account for Obama’s victory – and another 4 or 5 million voted in the 2012 election (enough that Romney may well have won that election. We must also consider the other electoral fraud demonrats regularly engage in, from ballot-stuffing to repeat voting to blocking conservatives from voting.  It is little wonder that demonrats stridently oppose both constraints on illegal immigration and voter ID laws – they cannot win outside their narrow coastal enclaves (plus Chicago) without massive electoral fraud:

A report from the conservative/libertarian think tank Just Facts shows that up to 5.7 million people who cast their ballots in the 2008 presidential election were non-citizens. The group used data from a Harvard study as well as U.S. Census Bureau data to arrive at that conclusion.

Just Facts also estimated that up to 3.6 million non-citizens cast their vote in 2012.

Just Facts’ conclusions confront both sides in the illegal voting debate: those who say it happens a lot and those who say the problem nonexistent.

In one camp, there are groundbreaking studies by professors at Old Dominion University in Virginia who attempted to compile scientifically derived illegal voting numbers using the Harvard data, called the Cooperative Congressional Election Study.

On the other side are the professors who conducted the study and contended that “zero” noncitizens of about 18 million adults in the U.S. voted. The liberal mainstream media adopted this position and proclaimed the Old Dominion work was “debunked.” [Given 18 million – it’s probably far higher than that – illegals in this country, there is ZERO chance that zero of them have fraudulently voted.  Democrats are so focused on – and cover up with such fervor – their get out the vote efforts in Hispanic neighborhoods, and demonrats so freely admit their fraud in other areas, there is no way illegals are not voting.  I’m quite certain millions are, and illegals underlie demonrat hopes to turn Texas “blue” or at least purple. We must get that wall built, NOW]

The ODU professors, who stand by their work in the face of attacks from the left, concluded that in 2008 as few as 38,000 and as many as 2.8 million noncitizens voted.

Mr. Agresti’s analysis of the same polling data settled on much higher numbers. He estimated that as many as 7.9 million noncitizens were illegally registered that year and 594,000 to 5.7 million voted.

It is little wonder that democrats and the political-cultural elite they control are so hell-bent on keeping the mass influx of immigrants continuing unabated.  Their entire electoral program hinges on it, at least so long as they remain wedded to elitist, leftist political/religious dogmas. I see little chance of their core beliefs changing.  So I pray President Trump and the few good Republicans in Congress start focusing ALL their efforts on building the wall and getting a handle on this mass influx. The very survival of this nation as it has always been construed depends on it, if that survival can even be attained at this point.

There is, however, a certain irony from the Catholic point of view in seeing the historical protestant core/elite of this country swamped in a flood of Catholics.  Of course, the Church is so weak and rotten at present that most of those fall away a few years after arriving here.  I had some sad experience of that lately.  Actually, sad, but then happy.  A young Hispanic man at our local TLM parish described to me how his parents had come here in the early 80s, gotten amnestied in ’86, and then become protestant and started a family. This young man was thus raised protestant, but their protestant sect house in Grand Prairie started going liberal – as they almost all tend to do over time, since they are man-made institutions (not that our God-made institution is without its human flaws) – and he started learning about Catholicism.  Long story short, he converted, and he managed to get most of his family to revert, but they were shortly disgusted by the liberalism, false doctrine, horrid liturgy and other grave problems they found in Novus Ordo world.  And so that is how this young man found himself at the Fraternity parish in Irving.  Wonder of wonders, his elderly grandmother who pined for an authentic Mass for decades after emigrating to the US finally got to experience it just a few days ago.  When they started going back to the Catholic Church in the US, grandmother wondered at the plethora of Eucharistic ministers, the casual and immodest dress, and the poor quality of the liturgy.  She was mightily pleased by her experience at Mater Dei, apparently.

God can draw straight with very crooked human lines.  A family fell away by immigrating to the US, but managed to return, and quite possibly find a much more robust practice of the Faith, by coming to this country.  The TLM is rarely available in Mexico, at least outside Mexico City and Guadalajara and a handful of other places.  Our God is great.

So should conservative activists engage in the kind of street theater the Left does, or not? June 20, 2017

Many readers may be aware of a despicable play being staged – at least partly at taxpayer expense – in the city of New York, a version of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar set in modern times with an obvious Trump stand-in as Caesar and with a particularly gruesome assassination scene involving the pretended president.  This is of course extremely nasty and just the kind of perverse fantasizing the Left frequently resorts to when they get their feelings hurt by a public repudiation of their political-social program (i.e., when the lose a presidential election).

Many on the right see on this just a small part of the environment that led an avowed and extreme leftist loser to try to murder a number of Republican Congressmen at a baseball practice last week.  Only Steve Scalise among the Congressmen was hit, and he badly, but the intent was to murder many others if possible.  The gunman even had drawn up a target list.  He felt justified in his action after steeping himself in the fetid bathhouse air of the leftist fever swamps of the internet, wherein it is constantly claimed that even the minor changes to Obamacare proposed by the timid Republicrats in Congress amounts to MURDER, because millions were dying in the streets before Obamacare, and even slight changes will bring the same or even worse.  Thus, since Republicans intend to kill millions (or thousands, or whatever number they make up out of whole cloth), it is thus entirely justified to kill them before they get the chance to callously kill others.  It’s practically self-defense!  Or so it goes in the far Left, where attachment to reality has become increasingly tenuous.

At any rate, this play is, to many increasingly troubled conservatives, just part of an over-arching effort by the Left not only to make any non-Leftist views completely verboten in the public sphere, but also to create an environment in which actual physical attacks against the Left’s perceived enemies is not just tolerated, but practically a life or death necessity.  We have seen steadily increasing violence from the Left since the shock of Trump’s election and the entire ridiculous #resistance movement, from the Berkeley riot on Feb 1 through several other Berkeley riots (with increasingly effective conservative counter-revolutionary action), to New Orleans, Portland, Olympia, WA, and other locales.  In virtually every instance it is the Left  that is either initiating the violence, or ramping it up to an entirely new level.

And as I mentioned, there have been increasing responses from the “right,” or even centrist free speech advocates.  One of those responses was seen this past weekend, where people associated with Gavin McGinnes/Rebel Media stormed the Julius Caesar travesty cum play and briefly interrupted it with shouts decrying the play’s seeming incitement to violence.  As seen below:

A bit to my surprise, many on the right, at least in the form of Youtube videos and comments, were troubled by this action.  They felt that in disrupting this play thse people were just aping some of the worst aspects of the Left. Given that, here is another video where those interrupting the play defended their actions:

So what do you make of this?  Is it bad practice to do what the Left has done for decades, and take the fight into their bastions and call them out for the evil they are promoting?

I have seen these brief interruptions described as an assault on free speech.  I’m not sure I agree with that – first of all, as a Catholic, this country has made an idol of certain liberties that are disordered at best and positively destructive at worst, free speech permitting blasphemy and sacrilege being just one example (and far from the worst – the cult of official state religion as agnosticism is the worst).  I am not a free speech absolutist, in that sense.  To me, however, even granting the erroneous assumption of free speech as a practical absolute short of incitements to violence, it seems just as much free speech to interrupt the event as it is to put it on in the first place.  These protesters were not nearly so disruptive as the Left has tended to be at conservative events.  They made their point, and were quickly dragged off stage.  Thus, they did not deny anyone else’s ability to speak – contrary again to how the Left tends to behave in these situations.

But is it bad precedent, or tending in the same direction many rightly revile the Left for? Possibly.  I do think there is some value in the Right – if it is the Right – making these kinds of demonstrations, especially where they occurred, in the very belly of the beast, amongst the most fervent and destructive adherents of the religion of leftist secular paganism.  Right smack dab in the middle of NYC.  That’s much more speaking truth to power than any of the leftist shenanigans we’ve seen in recent months and years.  And it points up an important fact – that the Left has become the establishment, that it is not in the least bit countercultural or cutting edge, it is the forcibly ingrained status quo, the default setting of the vast majority of the economic, political, and especially cultural elites.  There is great value in showing the corruption and evil inherent in the status quo, even in what many may see as an ineffective way.

So, I’m pretty sympathetic to the protesters and their aims.  Then again, I’m the kind of guy who thinks large format photos showing the brutal reality of abortion are a key way of demonstrating the reality of this evil to a callous and uncaring world.  In fact, I’d be up for some of the civil disobedience tactics of the 70s and 80s, like human chains blocking access to abortion mills and the like.  Maybe I just have a default setting towards confrontation.  I could be wrong.

Then again, if “we” on the Right make broad use of our adversary’s nastier tactics, do we lose moral standing and, even unwittingly, adopt some of their “might makes right” attitude?  I can definitely see some issue with that.  Unfortunately, the Left is not going to back down.  This is the new normal folks.  It is not going to go away – and it may be a bit worse because of the person of Trump, but the Left is increasingly showing they will refuse any but their own as President of the United States.  They got warmed up with that attitude with Bush ’43 and it has sunk in, metastasized, and grown far worse.

I am very interested to know what readers –  if there are any left – think about this.  Let me know in the comments.

PS – It may be some time before I finish the posts on the San Antonio Missions.  I had transferred all the pics from my phone to my laptop, then my son set my laptop down in a puddle of water on the kitchen table that another kid failed to wipe up properly, and my laptop is now toast.  I lost some blog-related things, including the Mission photos, but much more, I lost a boatload of work.  I would have had a little time to post this week, buuuut……..now I’m having to recreate about 2 weeks worth of work.  Goes faster the second time, but anyway……

Canadian Gov’t to Steal Children from Home if Parent’s Don’t “Accept” Their “Gender Identity” June 8, 2017

Whatever those loaded terms mean.

If you like your kids, you can keep your kids, provided you do and think and say everything the almighty state commands at every instant.  And no, this is not much of an exaggeration, with Ontario – whose laws almost always wind up being put into place at the national level in the People’s Republic of Canadia – now passing a law that says children may be removed from a home if parents do not “accept” – and who gets to decide the terms of that acceptance?!? – their child’s new “gender identity,” no matter how flighty, bizarre, peer-pressure-induced, or destructive it may be:

A Canadian province has passed a law that gives rights to the government to take away children from families that don’t accept their kid’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression”.

The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, also know as Bill 89, was passed in Ontario by a vote of 63 to 23, The Christian Times reported[Do note the Orwellian language.  Yes, they support families by ripping them apart, the better to allow the state to make permanent devotees of the religion of sexular paganism starting at age 3.]

The law, which replaces old laws governing child protection, foster care and adoption services, instructs all child services and judges, to take into consideration a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.” [This is ugly in so many respects. This balkanization into post-modern eternally warring aggrieved groups is the work of satan.  Also note the overtones of anti-white racialism in all this.]

Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, said “I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently.” [Once again the Orwellian language.  Not a parent, not a person whose very soul is intimately wrapped up in the fate of the child they helped create, but a “caregiver.”]

“If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.” [And this will never be abused for political ends, or see children’s (and parent’s) lives permanently up-ended after they fall prey to some demonic online hellhole like Tumblr.]

The old law used to allow parents to “direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” The new bill, however, amends such rights of the parents[Right.  But it also will never, ever be applied to muslims, only to Christians.  Also, shame on you Canada for your British-inspired and damnable conception of rights, believing it is up to the state to hand out to parents (and all other citizens) whatever the state deigns to give, rather than being the God-given right of every soul born on this earth to raise their children to the best of their ability and in line with their own conscience.  It is thus Canada has no equivalent to the US First or Second Amendments.]

It now emphasizes a child’s “identity and allows parents only to “direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.” [So if white parents adopt a black child they have to teach him ebonics?  If they adopt a child of muslim parents (however unlikely that may be) they have to raise him as a muzzie?]

Ontario children and youth advocate Irwin Elman celebrated the bill and said it signals a “paradigm shift” and creates a “child-centered system of service” with “the commitment to anti-racism and children’s rights.” [Let me rephrase: “Now we leftists get access to thousands of kids so young they’ll be ours forever.”]

Jack Fonseca, a political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition, meanwhile, criticized the new law.

I’d do more than criticize, I’d be profoundly freaked out and looking for somewhere to emigrate to, but it’s rapidly becoming clear there are few places left in the former West/Christendom that aren’t on an identical path. Colombia’s been fairly stable for a while now.  Cartageña’s supposed to be nice. How about Panama?  Every day is 12 hours long, no more, no less!

Tragically, what happens in Canada, doesn’t stay in Canada.  It tends to show up here about 20-30 years later, or whenever the electorate gives the Leftist party the presidency.

Catholics Banned From Doing Business in Leftist City June 8, 2017

This is only just the beginning, folks.  That’s what all these sodo-marriage and non-gender-binary-otherkin restroom laws are all about, making being Christian more or less illegal, subject to state persecution at any time. Now, this was a typical leftist college town in Michigan (East Lansing – home of Michuguna State), but these same “non-discrimination” laws are being passed all over.  Dallas has them.  Houston has them. Austin and San Antonio have them in spades.  So if you refuse to support pseudo-sodo-marriage, or have a problem with a grown male pervert with beard and horrid makeup sharing restroom space with your daughter, get out of town, bigot:

[F]or the past seven years, Steve Tennes and his family have sold their produce at the farmer’s market owned by the city of East Lansing.

But this year – city officials told the devout Catholic family that their blueberries and sweet corn were not welcome at the farmer’s market – and neither were they.

Last year, someone posted a message on Country Mill’s Facebook page inquiring about whether they hosted same-sex weddings at the farm. [Now why would one even ask this about a random farm, unless some digging had already been done and this was an attempt to cause trouble for the family?  I am extremely dubious this was an innocent request]

Tennes told the individual they did not permit same-sex marriages on the farm because of the family’s Catholic belief that marriage is a sacramental union between one man and one woman.

City officials later discovered the Facebook posting and began immediate action to remove Country Mill from the Farmer’s Market – alleging the family had violated the city’s discrimination ordinance. [So they didn’t respond to a complaint, they actively sought out the offense and then began prosecution]

“It was brought to our attention that The Country Mill’s general business practices do not comply with East Lansing’s Civil Rights ordinances and public policy against discrimination as set forth in Chapter 22 of the City Code and outlined in the 2017 Market Vendor Guidelines, as such, The Country Mill’s presence as a vendor his prohibited by the City’s Farmer’s Market Vendor Guidelines,” read a letter the city sent to the family.

It also did not seem to matter to city leaders that the farm is located 22 miles outside the city limits – and had absolutely nothing to do with the business of selling blueberries at the farmer’s market.

“We were surprised and we were shocked,” Steve told me. “My wife and I both volunteered to serve in the military – to protect freedom now we come home and the freedom that we worked to protect – we have to defend in our own backyard.”

I reached out to city leaders but they did not return my calls seeking comment.

“Whether you are a Jew, Muslim or Christian – people of faith should not be eradicated from the marketplace simply because they don’t share the same thoughts and ideas that the government is choosing to promote,” Steve told me.

So they have decided to fight for their constitutional rights. [And note this is very different from refusing to bake a cake for a fake wedding.  This is about searching out and persecuting heretics from the sexular pagan religion.]

Alliance Defending Freedom filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday alleging East Lansing violated the constitutional rights of the Tennes family.

“All Steve wants to do is sell his food to anyone who wants to buy it, but the city isn’t letting him,” said ADF Legal Counsel Kate Anderson. “People of faith, like the Tennes family, should be free to live and work according to their deeply held beliefs without fear of losing their livelihood. If the government can shut down a family farmer just because of the religious views he expresses on Facebook—by denying him a license to do business and serve fresh produce to all people—then no American is free.”

I warned you about this kind of attack in my new book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again.”  The attacks on religious liberty did not end just because a Republican is in the White House.

There is a concerted effort by the Left to silence free speech and eradicate Christianity from the public marketplace. The only course of action is to stand and fight.

You may have no concern about “gay marriage,” but the gay marriage zealots are very interested in you.  You will be brought to heel. You will be made to give them the affirmation they crave, and can never get enough of.  Otherwise, they will make you suffer.

Check out the atheist Catholic college professor in the comments.  Constantly bashes and denigrates God.  Natural fit for a Katholyc Klown Kollege.  He also seems to be a communist.  As such, he’s probably near the median belief set for Catholic college professors since the Council.  Leftism is this guy’s true religion, and he will brook no apostasy nor any competition.

Muslims, Incensed by Truth Regarding the False Prophet Mohammad, Cry Bigotry June 6, 2017

This is the billboard that is the source of muslim ire around the nation:

Every single statement made on that billboard regarding the false prophet and conceiver of the demonic sect of islam is true.  It is that man’s evil vision, literally an inversion of Christianity, that continues to cause mass chaos around the world on a daily basis, with over 100 non-muslims being killed by muslims for religious reasons DAILY worldwide.

And yes I have in previous posts laid out numerous reasons why Mohammad was a completely false prophet (for one, not a single miracle worked to substantiate his claims of divine inspiration, then there are the satanic verses (of the early Koran, later expunged), where Mohammad fell under satan’s influence/domination, then there are the murderous exhortations throughout the Koran, then……….) and inventer of a demonic, deliberately anti-Christian sect.

But muslims gonna muzzle, so they are shouting bigotry at these stark revelations concerning the founder of the most backward, repressive, totalitarian, murderous major religion on the planet:

A billboard on the east side of Indianapolis is catching the eyes of drivers, along with the ire of local Muslim groups.

You can spot the sign from the southbound lanes of I-465 near the Washington Street exit. It claims to list the “perfect man,” but opponents say it degrades the Muslim prophet Mohammad.

“I was a little disappointed when I saw that,” said Farial Khatri of the Islamic Society of North America.

Opponents say the billboard’s bullet points are meant to disparage the Muslim faith and its primary prophet, Mohammad.

“We’ve seen them in New York and several others cities on billboards as well as other transit ads,” said Kahtri.

There’s no company name or identifying group on the display, but Google “Truthophobes,” a word seen at the bottom of the billboard, and you’ll find a range of websites rife with anti-Muslim messages.

“We do support free speech, but we do realize this is also rooted in bigotry,” said Kahtri.

Other groups say they want to do more than just speak out against the display. The Muslim Alliance of Indiana says it’s planning to raise money to put up its own billboard nearby to spread a message of peace and kindness.

Note, they don’t refute a thing said on the billboard.  They cannot refute the message, so they shoot the messenger.

Regarding this counter-campaign, these typically operate on a similar basis of half-truths and selective revelation.  Signs like the below have appeared in certain parts of Dallas:

These signs are placed in locations that obviously seek to capitalize on any frustrations and indignations held by certain minority communities.  But notice they don’t speak of islam’s treatment of women as little more than chattel.  Nor the rampant abuse of children in countries ruled by sharia.  They’ve learned selective messaging very well from their leftist allies/abettors.

If you’d like to take a stand against creeping sharia in the US, right here in the DFW area, there is going to be a protest against sharia this Saturday June 10 2017 at  10a and runs to 2p.  Location is corner of Abrams and Centennial in Richardson.  More details here.  The protest location is directly across the street from a major mosque.  I think most people park at the “Christian World Church” at the same corner.  It is catty-cornered from the mosque.

About this protest.  Previous editions have involved armed Americans.  The most recent one featured some scuffling against antifa.  That one was weird, the muslims turned against the antifa guys.  But at any rate be prepared for something less sedate than your average prayer vigil outside a Planned Barrenhood or March for Life.  These things can get intense, with lots of in your face shouting and pushing.

I sorely wish I could go.  I’ve been wanting to attend one of these for a while now.  They originated in Irving then spread to Richardson. I’ve also wanted to have a go at antifa. But I have a funeral to attend at noon the same day.

Regarding the muslims, I would be polite but firm that they belong to a horrifically erroneous sect.  Explain their dire need for conversion.  I would not be violent, rhetorically or otherwise.  As to antifa, be as violent as you like.  At the last protest they hired Black Panthers to be their “muscle,” since they so pathetically lack their own organic enforcers.  I would strongly recommend body armor and headgear if you have any.  Also a respirator that filters most inorganic gasses (like CS) and something to protect your eyes.  Antifa love to use the bear spray.

But if  you’re local and planning on going, you’re welcome to the Kek flag if you want to borrow it.  I do hope there is a good turnout, as Benjamin Franklin said, we have a republic, if we can keep it:

h/t reader skeinster

Speaking of Kek, some more greatness to get you fired up for the protest:

Viva El Jefe! Trump Withdraws from Paris Climate Confab June 1, 2017

Even more delicious than Trump’s following through on a significant campaign promise in pulling the US out of the tyrannical and unjustifiable Paris Climate Accord, in spite of several of his closest advisors pushing against doing so (especially his daughter and son-in-law), is the Left’s hysterical reaction.  Their multifaceted religion of sexular paganism has been offended against!  The holy temple of gaia has been violated!  This must not stand!

The Federalist provides a nice rundown of some of the most unhinged responses from #theresistance crowd of Twitter verified assholes:

Billionaire and faux environmentalist Tom Steyer said withdrawing would be a “traitorous act of war.”

Democrat Jon Ossoff warns Trump: “History will condemn” you if US leaves Paris climate deal

Quote fabricator Neil deGrasse Tyson said Trump wasn’t science-y enough to know science things good: “If I and my advisors had never learned what Science is or how & why it works, then I’d consider pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord too.” [Always the preening condescension and self-aggrandizement.  We poor dumb a$$ conservatives just can’t comprehend science]

One of Pope Francis’s right-hand men said it would be “a slap in the face” to the Vatican if Trump did not continue to punish U.S. manufacturers to appease European elites. [This was Msgr. Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, whose earth-mother worshipping extremism and pro-abortion antics have already been covered several times on this blog]

Let’s expand a bit on Sanchez’ rant, shall we?  From Crux:

Argentine Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, said that if Trump takes the United States out of the Paris deal, signed in Dec. 2015, “it would be a disaster for everyone. There’s little else to comment on.”

Sorondo is quoted by the Italian newspaper La Repubblica coming back from a summit at the United Nations devoted to climate change.

“I don’t know what Trump spoke about with the pope,” Sorondo said. “I don’t believe, however, that the conversation was very detailed on climate. I know, however, that the President of the United States spoke about this in the conversation he had with Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s secretary of state.”

In that sense, the bishop said, Trump pulling out of the accords would be “a slap in the face also for us,” referring to the Vatican.

The U.S. President has long spoken about pulling out from Paris, and, according to Sorondo, this is motivated by the “oil lobby.” [Of course it is.  Sorondo has used this simplistic, plainly false slur before.]

But wait, there’s more!  The USCCB has to get in on the act, too!

Bishop Oscar Cantú of Las Cruces, Chairman of the USCCB Committee on International Justice and Peace, has urged the president not to pull out of the agreement.

“The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is on record supporting prudent action to mitigate the worst impacts of climate change,” Cantú said in a statement. [Which are………..what, exactly?  Soaring energy prices leading to potential famine around the world as cheap and efficient sources of energy are blocked for reasons for pure ideology and the desire of the Left to impose communism by enviro-stealth?]

“Our Conference of Bishops has vigorously promoted the teaching of our Holy Father, Pope Francis, on care for our common home,” Cantú continued. “The Holy Father’s encyclical letter, Laudato si’, was timed in order to urge the nations of the world to work together in Paris for an agreement that protects our people and our planet. [So it was more of a political than a doctrinal statement. The Church is now removed from leading the world through morals and timeless Truth, to chasing whatever the latest political fad is in a desperate bid to remain relative.  Gotcha.] We hope the United States will honor the commitment it made there.” [While China, India, Russia, Vietnam, and scores of other countries continue to emit CO2 and actual pollutants at a rate orders of magnitude higher than that of the US.  Even if the US were to entirely ban all fossil fuel use global CO2 emissions would continue to increase because of the less-developed nations, which were by and large given a pass in this accord.  Thus, it has nothing to do with climate, and everything to do with control.]

How long will we have to wait before the backhanded, passive-aggressive attack from Francis against this offense to his one true faith?  Not very long, I wager. In fact, we really already have, because Sorondo is a Francis-creature and given how tightly Francis dominates everyone around him, he did not speak without authorization.

A few more:

This grassroots organizer said Trump’s announcement will prevent everyone from living on planet earth: “Trump just declared war on the very idea of life on earth.”

HuffPo right now: “TRUMP TO PLANET: DROP DEAD”

And a bit more evidence that many of the “conservative” Never Trumpers are actually leftists in disguise, or are at least too afraid to offend their progressive betters:

If today were opposite day, we could say that The Wall Street Journal‘s Christopher Mims’s response to the news is very reasonable: “As a species we flunked the collective action problem that is carbon emissions. It’s now adapt or die. And I’m not a techno-utopian.”

The radical Left and the democrat party – but I repeat myself – are now so hurt at the surprise of Trump’s win and offended at his existence that if he literally cured all forms of cancer tomorrow they would still portray Trump as the devil.

But I think we conservatives need to get used to the idea that this is how they will react from now on to ANY relatively conservative winning the White House (as opposed to a RINO big-government statist like the Bushes, but even then they lost their minds).  This is how they are going to behave from now on when they don’t get their way.  They have all the intelligence and maturity of a 4 year old having a sobbing screaming temper tantrum.

I really don’t know how this country stays together.  It is almost entirely the Left’s fault, this descent into mutually hostile ideological camps ready to visit violence upon the other.  I agree with Ace, about the best outcome now is a civil, peaceable divorce along geographic lines, which means Texas as an independent nation or part of a south-central conservative conglomeration.  The longer that divorce is delayed, the uglier and more bitter the final split will be.

 

Awesome – Whittle Destroys Nye in Battle of the Bills May 31, 2017

I remember back in college, having the pathetic choice of only 30 or 40 basic cable channels to choose from, being annoyed that it seemed like Bill Nye The Science Guy show was on about 4 different channels at least 8 hours a day.  I couldn’t surf through the lineup without seeing him at least twice, it seemed, just about any time of day.

I never found his program compelling, as it was full of that same smug condescension that leftists always resort to when talking to children.  Not only that, but its self-importance was over the top.

And yet from that program, an entire generation of kids, broadly speaking, is apparently convinced that Bill Nye – whose educational credentials (BSME) certainly do not exceed my own, and I have decades experience actually designing and fabricating highest-tech products in my bag – is one of the world’s great experts in not just one particular field of science, but all scientific disciplines generally.  But Nye has never been satisfied to limit himself to being the Newton of our age in every scientific discipline.  He has always been very glad to mix his increasingly leftist politics in with his purported scientific laws (until the science becomes inconvenient to the leftism, then the science gets jettisoned).

So now he has a new show on Netflix (with the incredibly humble name Bill Nye Saves the World), ostensibly for kids (kids with an extensive porn habit, apparently, judging by the material he produces), but which is really little more than a vehicle for Bill Nye – world’s greatest genius guy! – to engage in half hour disjointed political rants.  That is, when he’s not pushing wanton immorality and gross perversion on his supposed target audience.

But Nye’s favorite leftist hobby horse to ride has always been global cooling I mean global warming I mean climate change (whew! – we’re covered!).  In this area he is simply another reliable climate cultist with few original thoughts.

Now Bill Whittle knows a thing or two about science. He has had a long association with the aerospace industry and also has worked in a lab for over 20  years, over a decade longer than Nye’s brief career at Boeing. And he utterly obliterates Nye in this great video, Bill Nye the Science Lie.  Not only does he obliterate the Left’s climate change cult (once again), but he also punctures the preening arrogance of the so-called “rational set” on the left, who hold themselves so far above those stupid superstitious conservative Bible-humpers (interesting, then, that liberals are far, far more likely to believe in things like Bigfoot, space aliens, power crystals, astrology, etc):

Now that is a thorough and complete takedown.  Always helps to get the rest of the story the Left and their PR department (the media) don’t want to share.

Swedish Report Confirms 3/4 of so-called Islamic Child Migrants Are Adults – Also Overwhelmingly Male May 31, 2017

As Sargon notes, who knew there were so many racists in Sweden?  After all, we’ve been told that to do even a basic sociological study on the mass muslim invasion of Europe by military-age men constitutes racism, so apparently decades of socialist enervation and white liberal self-loathing have not quite driven the racism from the damnable Swedes (I can say that, being part Norwegian). Uff da.

Seriously, this only confirms what anyone with a brain, that is, anyone not consumed by cultural marxist dogma, has long known: the “child refugee crisis” in Europe is nothing of the sort.  They aren’t children, they aren’t refugees, and the crisis has been created by the political/economic elites in Europe (and, with a different immigrant population, in the US).  This is an invasion of military-age males from the muslim ummah into Europe primarily seeking economic and social benefits:

If the “18 females and 563 males” are representative of the overall muslim invasion population – and since this was a formal sociological studies we have no reason to think they are not – 97% of the so-called “child migrants” are actually adult muslim males, almost universally of military age.

Also note that when the muslims find things in Europe not to their liking, such as finding Finland too cold and the food too bland, they LEAVE!  These are not thus people desperately fleeing a war zone, they are economic migrants looking to take some long, slow pulls on the Euro-welfare teat.

The video also notes that at least 2/3 of so-called “child migrants” in Britain are also adults.  And also overwhelmingly male.

More on the whole Euro-migrant scam.  These migrants transit just a few miles off the coast of Libya where they have – it appears – pre-arranged pick-up points with leftist NGO ships or leftist-Euro-government navy ships.

The entire thing is a scam from beginning to end is entirely about turning Syracuse or Salerno into Beirut or Benghazi (I kid you not):

Just as leftists in the US are determined to remake the US body politic into something far more leftist-friendly through mass immigration, they are doing the same in Europe.  Will Europeans continue to allow this to happen? Will Americans?

Man I get so sick of the lies and false propaganda spewed forth by these self-anointed elites constantly.  It really has to do with classism, and apparently wealthy white graduate-degree-toting leftists hate the middle class so much they’re determined to make their lives hell throughout the West.

Gavin McInnes’ Twenty Reasons Why School, uh……Stinks May 24, 2017

He uses a harder word, and this is McInnes, so you are forewarned that foul language will be profuse throughout this video, but he’s a recent Catholic convert – probably still trapped (unknowingly) in a standard banal Novus Ordo parish.  So maybe cut him some slack on the language and pray for his growth in virtue.

At the same time, he’s very entertaining, and unabashed critic of modern culture and especially the sexular pagan left, and he makes some great points in the video below critiquing the modern educational system in the West, and particularly in the United States.  Right off the bat in reason 2 of his twenty against the leftist domination in the vast majority of schools and colleges, public or private, he notes the intentional (and always leftist) politicization that is a fundamental part of the educational establishment.

Public schools have rarely in this country, or at least not since the nationalization of schools with the Department of Education, been about truly educating youths to think, to ground them in the classics, to give them a framework to learn throughout their life.  Even before the Department of Ed, many schools were too influenced by the Prussian model and too dedicated to turning out good factory workers, good obedient subjects of the government, etc.

But in the past few decades the Left has come to completely penetrate and dominate the educational establishment at all levels, often chucking even the pretense of education as the primary goal and instead making clear that what they seek to instill in the children parents hand over to their ministrations is a thoroughgoing Leftist ideology that the kids will be possessed with for life.  In the rising “millennial” generation, there plan seems to be coming to fruition, as this generation is by far the most propagandized and politicized – in an unthinking, uncritical way – we’ve seen at least since the 60s, and quite possibly ever:

However, I think there is some good news on this front.  While social media is often poison for forming a thinking, conscious mind, there are exceptions. When I’m working in the  yard or garage on the weekends, I listen to a lot of Youtube videos, and one of the fastest growing genres I’ve seen  (heard) of late is the 20-something millennial getting “red pilled” by watching videos from conservative/libertarian content producers.  At the very least, they are questioning the indoctrination they’ve received, and some are openly switching sides.

There aren’t nearly enough of these, of course, but the content produced by the likes of McInnes, Jordan Peterson, Black Pigeon Speaks, Sargon of Akkad, Jeffrey Rubin, Rebel Media, and many, many others does seem to be having some kind of positive impact.  No none of these people are explicitly Catholic or understand (and convey) the concept of leading a virtuous life in a Catholic sense, but many are on the right track and some, like McInnes, are even converting – pray God they don’t get scandalized out of the Faith by what they find, as many do (which was a point I missed from Matt’s video I posted  yesterday, a protestant who wants to convert but is being scandalized by Francis into possibly ignoring this call from God – this is an unspeakable tragedy and something for which I fear God’s judgment will be quite harsh).

Well, as if you  needed twenty more reasons to do all you possibly can to homeschool your kid(s) or send ’em to a rare good Christian private school, or an even rarer public school (perhaps way out in the country somewhere) where the insanity has not sunk in too deep.  But I really cannot emphasize the benefits of homeschooling enough, not only for the kids but for the parents as well.  Not that it’s a panacea, but it’s the best overall alternative we have now.

But mostly I just found the video fun, like almost all of Gavin’s are.

Francis at Fatima: “I am the bishop in white” May 23, 2017

Well, I guess that’s settled now:

Lots of good stuff from Matt, including expressions of grave doubt against the growing drumbeat towards war with Syria – yet another Mideast country where the US apparently has a grave national interest in seeing the ancient Catholic communities wiped out.

I must also agree with Matt that the very watered-down canonization process that has been implemented in the past 35 years – because the most substantial changes happened well after the Council and were in fact put in place by Pope Saint John Paul II (who wound up, in a certain sense, being a beneficiary of the changes, at least as far as his public cultus goes) – has helped contribute to a “meh, whatever” sense regarding the many canonizations to which we are now exposed.  The dilution of the requirement for miracles from 3 to 1 (or none?), the deletion of the role of the devil’s advocate – these things have I think helped trivialize the process and decrease the general affection souls have towards the Church Triumphant in Heaven.

 

Francis also expresses what must be assumed to be disbelief of several recent – and Church-approved – Marian apparitions, accosting those who believe that Mary’s intercession stays her Son’s wrathful arm as basically an invention of the mind of  some of the faithful.  Mary referred to staying her Son’s arm not only at La Sallete but also Akita.  Apparently Francis takes a dim view of those revelations.  As for imposing one’s own beliefs on the Church – project much, Francis?

There is much more, it’s well worth watching.  The video does close with some good news that the school principal who insulted, cussed at, and threatened some home schooled evangelical kids who were witnessing against abortion outside the public school he serves at has been suspended.  Whether that is with or without pay is not stated.  If it were a Catholic cussing out and threatening some little pagans arguing in favor of abortion, does anyone doubt he would have been fired on the spot?  But that’s what the Left wants, the full measure of the law or social rules (rules they invent) for you, but special kid glove treatment for themselves.  Of course they deserve that, because every leftist knows, they are just better than everyone else.

If this double standard continues, it will be the end of this country.  People will not stand to be treated as second class citizens.  Or will they?  For now, I think, a majority answers no, as the election of Trump, I think, proves.  I think these kinds of social-interaction issues played a huge role in Trump’s election.
