The War on Truth

In today's edition of the war on truth, the term "chickenshit" has now been redefined as unwilling to sell out one's own country for the plaudits of foreigners. On the other hand, non-"aspergery" people show their amazing social savvy by ignoring the will of their own people in order to serve the supposed best interests of another people, thousands of miles away.

As President Obama said just recently,
"We have to keep in mind that if we're discouraging our health care workers, who are prepared to make these sacrifices, from traveling to these places in need, then we're not doing our job in terms of looking after our own public health and safety,"

A bunch of people milling about in other peoples' business? An attempt to overrule the moral law by sheer numbers? An ineffectual and empty gesture that will either be ignored or subverted by the entrenched elites? Yup, that's democracy all right...

There has long been an unfortunate confusion between making distinctions of phylum and performing science. Science, of course, is the practice of determining natural laws via testable, falsifiable hypotheses. Science says that a bear has x number of chromosomes.

Making phylum, on the other hand, is a means of characterizing and speaking about our discoveries. It does not discriminate between true and false, testable or not testable, and falsifiable or not falsifiable, it merely shows that a distinction is conceivable. Thus the phylum "bear" is distinguished from others by a set of common characteristics not shared by outsiders. In turn, differences between individuals in the phylum "bear" are conceptually deemphasized.

"70+ Celebrities Who Are Christians"

Christianity has apparently receded so far from the general consciousness in the English-speaking world that's list of 70+ Celebrities Who Are Christians requires a short description of this religion. If you were unaware of this obscure sect, our host, "Celebrity Lists" tells us, "A Christian is an individual who believes in the teachings of Jesus Christ." Also, in case you don't know of any successful members of this upstart, fly-by-night operation, we are reassured that "Many famous actors, musicians, and athletes practice Christianity today." The more you know, huh?

Biological Warfare

The use of biological warfare has long been considered a breach of International Law. The Protocol for the Prohibition of the Use of Asphyxiating, Poisonous or Other Gases, and of Bacteriological Methods of Warfare signed in Geneva, Switzerland on 17 June 1925 states in part:
"Whereas the use in war of asphyxiating, poisonous or other gases, and of all analogous liquids materials or devices, has been justly condemned by the general opinion of the civilized world; and
Whereas the prohibition of such use has been declared in Treaties to which the majority of Powers of the world are Parties; and
To the end that this prohibition shall be universally accepted as a part of International Law, binding alike the conscience and the practice of nations;[...]
That the High Contracting Parties, so far as they are not already Parties to Treaties prohibiting such use, accept this prohibition, agree to extend this prohibition to the use of bacteriological methods of warfare and agree to be bound as between themselves according to the terms of this declaration."
There are currently 138 states that have signed this protocol, including Mexico and Guatemala.

"Western Values" and Islam

The media, these days, engage in the endless propagation of outright falsehood. This is no more clear then where the topic of discussion touches on some minority. (Minority, of course, in terms of the demographics of the civilized Western countries people actually want to live in, not the world at large. Liberals rarely acknowledge this world, or that anything there matters.) If one is a minority, the media will air almost any collection of lies that you can deliver with a straight face and, if the demoralized men of the West offer up any resistance, relentlessly attack the "racists" who disagree.

Rabia Chaudry recently wrote an interesting piece on the recent Bill Maher/Ben Affleck Islam dustup. The interesting part comes from the fact that nearly everything she says actively contradicts her point, which is that Islam is supposedly in line with Western liberal values.

While your host may also be said to be not in line with Western liberal values, and takes no small bit of pride in that fact, he also looks poorly upon the barrage of mistruths spread by the politically correct media, as well as the growing insistence in America that anything which a minority says must be taken as unassailable gospel. As such, I am going to forget all mercy and dissect this article point by point.

Memories of Lepanto

In my last post, I told you to tell someone, just one person, about a hero of the West. Today, I have been given an excellent chance to follow my own advice. For today is the four hundred and forty third anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto; when the forces of the Holy League, led by Don John of Austria, defeated the Ottoman Empire in a five hour naval battle which utterly crushed the Turkish navy, freed thousands of Christian slaves, and bought the west the breathing room that it required to bring about the greatest period of prosperity this world has ever known.

7,500 Christian men gave their lives that their brothers might know the blessings which that had brought. Fighting for faith and freedom, they exhibited the love of which Christ says there is no greater. Let us never forget their memory. Let us never dare to dishonor the blood they shed.

What Honor?

Recently, New York's Michael Bloomberg was knighted by the Queen of England. Since there has been no greater proponent of turning America into an over-regulated nanny state and no greater opponent of the Second Amendment, it makes perfect sense that the country that paved the way in so tyrannizing its citizens (apologies, I mean "subjects") should honor his attempts to spread such pernicious ideals. He served the globalists' message well, and now he receives his merited reward.

The Obola Runs Deep

Plenty of people have already weighed in on the insanity of the West African Ebola crisis hitting America's shores. They've laid out how utterly preventable this crisis has been and how even now simple actions that the government refuses to take could help to limit the damage. Most importantly, they've described the likely toll in American lives of the administration's inaction. I won't retread this ground here.

Yet all of that has been said and ignored. To this date, the Obama administration STILL REFUSES to institute a travel ban on West Africa! This is utterly unconscionable! America's government has cast off all illusion about caring about the lives of its subjects.

What is the Good News Today?

The word "Gospel", or εὐαγγέλιον means, as I'm sure you are aware, "Good News." But what, in our current social and political climate is the "good news"? What does the message of Christianity have to offer us today, when so many things have changed in the world from the era of its birth?
