The serious party’: President Elizabeth Warren’s Education Secretary would have to be interviewed and approved by ‘young trans person’ — This belongs in the “Not the Babylon Bee” section, but I wanted to highlight it.  As one person noted, this will make people go from Never Trump to MAGA 2020.  Taking policy advice from kids = stupid.  Taking policy advice from “trans” people, who are, by definition, mentally disturbed = insanity.  Combine the two and you are off the charts.  The Left is a self-parody.


God: You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.

Students demanded divestment from fossil fuels, a professor offered to turn off the gas heating

Fergus Green, the organiser of the wider protest, who is studying for a master’s degree in physics and philosophy at Balliol College, said: “This is an inappropriate and flippant response by the bursar to what we were hoping would be a mature discussion. It’s January and it would be borderline dangerous to switch off the central heating.”

Then complain to Greta, snowflake.


‘Oligarchy is real’: Now that Cory Booker and Julian Castro are out, the DNC changed the debate rules to benefit the rich white dude — If Republicans did something like this the Left would never stop crying “raaaaacist.”


Franklin Delano Quid Pro Quo – more reasons that the impeachment trial is ridiculous and that you don’t want the Federal Gov’t involved in things outside their constitutional authority.  You get nothing but abuse and waste.

“The inefficiency and uselessness of many WPA projects was a serious problem,” Dr. Folsom writes, “but a greater problem was the increased politicization of relief under the WPA.” President Roosevelt had “much discretion in allocation and distributing” WPA money, not unlike a president’s discretion in allocating and distributing foreign aid — though worse because foreign policy is constitutionally the president’s prerogative. As Folsom notes, FDR would choose “which states would receive what,” and the main problem was that this “made relief a game of political manipulation,” at least in the hands of a manipulative president like Franklin Roosevelt. “The problems that plagued the FERA would sharply increase under WPA because more money was at stake,” Folsom notes. “Governors worried that their states would not get their ‘fair share’ of federal tax booty, and so they came to Washington, hats in hand, to curry favor with Roosevelt, Harry Hopkins, who became the WPA director, and other New Deal administrators.”


Why Wasn’t Spygate Impeachable? — Democrats personify hypocrisy.

The Democrats have impeached Trump for merely contemplating something that Obama actually did. And in Obama’s case, the abuse of power was altogether real: it resulted in a massive violation of civil liberties. Obama’s FBI falsely claimed that four members of Trump’s campaign were probable Russian agents. None of them were. Oops. Oh well, the Democrats said. Obama had an obligation to check out the hunches of John Brennan and James Comey.

By contrast, Hunter Biden’s corruption wasn’t conjectural. As even Obama’s State Department acknowledged, his “work” in Ukraine reeked of improprieties and influence-peddling.

It is hilarious to watch Democrats speak of the Bidens as above reproach. In truth, Joe Biden stands at the center of a family of crooks who have spent decades trading on his last name. In Peter Schweizer’s new book, Profiles in Corruption, he writes that the family’s wealth “depends on Joe Biden’s political influence and involves no less than five family members: Joe’s son Hunter, daughter Ashley, brothers James and Frank, and sister Valerie.”


Eric Ciaramella’s Name Is Not a Secret, and #TeamTrump Only Hires Winners — The impeachment process was a ridiculous farce from the beginning.  Democrats hate this country and are power-mad, and will do anything to get back in control.

Audio Proved She Begged Him For Sex & Then Accused Him Of Sexual Assault. Columbia Expelled Him — It is a dangerous world out their for dating, and especially so on college campuses.  So many false accusations and so many Leftist administrators!  And doing things God’s way helps you avoid all that.

Here we have a former Marine who was convicted in a kangaroo court despite the fact that the recording he made exonerated him. His diploma was pulled after Columbia retroactively expelled him for sexual assault, despite the fact that he spent the whole night fending off a woman that was intent on having sex with him. Now, he’s been publicly branded as a rapist because of this woman’s lies. It is a disgraceful situation and all of us should hope Columbia ends up having to pay millions of dollars for the unjust way they have treated him. Only when these “woke” schools fear facing lawsuits will they stop treating young men as guilty until proven innocent — and maybe not even then.


The Fourth Reich — China’s abuses of their people, including murders and organ-stealing, are well known.  Yet the virtue-signaling Left shamelessly props them up.   Notable exception: Facebook.

Imagine the potential impact if Facebook’s example were followed by Google, Boeing, the NBA, and dare I say it, Apple. What if these mega-corporations joined together to say that they believe in human rights and they will be unable to do further business with a nation that incarcerates Muslims in concentration camps, rips the organs out of political prisoners, and socially cancels Christians simply for following Jesus Christ? I’m not naïve. I wouldn’t expect China to become an enlightened and free society. But perhaps, just perhaps, the worst abuses could be ameliorated, and people of faith allowed to practice that faith — which, after all, is a fundamental human right — without being crushed by their government.


Travel Baseball: A Common Form Of Insanity — Travel ball can be perverse for families. My sister and her husband had a rocky relationship, but at the time they were doing their best and plugged into a good church their son – who was good at soccer but not enough to get a scholarship or anything — joined a travel team. All of sudden they missed a lot of church then phased out completely. Their relationship spiraled down into abuse and divorce. No, I’m not saying it was just the travel ball, but it didn’t help. I’ve seen it draw other people away from church and stability, especially when the whole family isn’t going together.

Our philosophy was simple: God gave you your bodies to move and do things, so you should be active in something. Our hope would be that they would be fit for life doing something they like.  But trying to invest in your kids for a career in sports is a waste of time and money. Our daughters became extremely talented ballerinas, with one dancing professionally, but she always knew she needed a regular education as well so she got a degree in parallel and it worked really well when she retired from dance and got married.


Democrats wary of blowback from angry Bernie Bros, which often turns ‘sexist, racist and vile’ – But but but progressive love and tolerance or something!  Keep in mind that this is how they treat other Leftists.  Imagine how they’ll treat conservatives!

Some progressive activists who declined to back Mr. Sanders have begun traveling with private security after incurring online harassment. Several well-known feminist writers said they had received death threats. A state party chairwoman changed her phone number. A Portland lawyer saw her business rating tumble on an online review site after tussling with Sanders supporters on Twitter…


Mexican President is “acting like Trump’s border wall” – Nice!


Letters to Hannah: Superbowl 51 — A couple years old, but an interesting perspective on the Super Bowl and sports-watching in general.  I don’t object to people watching some sports, but it can easily become an idol.  And if they aren’t exercising themselves then they should do that first before watching anything.  I gave up sports and most TV when the kids were young and didn’t miss a thing.  I hardly ever watch anything now.

I have absolutely nothing against anyone playing a sport, and I actually prefer that they play and enjoy them. What I’m against is the idea that part of being a man is watching a sport. I’m against the idea that it’s desirable for fat men to gather around a television and shout at it; and that anyone who challenges the idea is effeminate. The opposite is true. An unfit man who knows more about sports news than his country is worse than the laziest and dumbest of gold-digging housewives. So far as I’m concerned he might as well be concerned with celebrity gossip — he can grow up or hang himself.

‘Can I have my money back?’ Father confronts Elizabeth Warren over student loan forgiveness — This is such a great campaign issue for Republicans.  Even Leftists who paid off their loans (or didn’t take out loans) won’t want to pay off the loans of anyone else, especially those who got Lesbian Astrology degrees.  Just another example of shameless vote-buying by the Communists.  The sense of entitlement in this country is already staggering.  Letting special interest groups force others to pay off their loans would make things even worse.


So brave: Woman’s act of resistance is to take up the best parking spaces at Masterpiece Cakeshop — “Christian” Leftist walking freak show Nadia-Bolz Weber (BFF of Rachel Held Evans, of course) is the woman in question.  She bravely deleted her Tweet when people started pointing her hypocrisy of doing this while posing as a Christian pastor.  And note how her act was extra-stupid and hateful: She wasn’t harming the owner, she was inconveniencing his customers (then again, she probably hates them as well for supporting a guy with Christian standards).  So she’s petty, evil and not a very clear thinker.  So typical of the “Christian” Left.

I’ve used Dashlane for years to store passwords, addresses (including old ones), personal information like Social Security and license numbers, and much more.  You just need one robust overall password and the rest is automated. It gives you much stronger passwords and you don’t have to remember them.  It saves me time every day, but if you ever move or have to change default credit card numbers it will really save you time.  Just one click will populate address forms and such.

And when my Dad died in 2017 it saved me countless hours, as I was able to export his passwords from a different password app (very glad that my 89 year old dad was tech-savvy enough to do that!) and import them to Dashlane.  I was constantly logging into various accounts for months and Dashlane let me do it automatically.

For your master password, I recommend taking a regular (but odd) word and combining it with an abbreviation of a Bible passage, because that is easy to remember and has upper and lower case letters, numbers, a colon and a dash yet is still easy to remember.

Dashlane makes your life a million times easier. Get started with these three steps and you’ll be up and running.

First: Get the app on your phone and computer. That way your passwords will go wherever you do. 

Second: Install the extension on your favorite browser, and stay logged into Dashlane when you’re on your computer. The extension will save all your passwords and logins as you browse. 

Third: Turn off any other autofill or password tools like Chrome or Keychain, otherwise they’ll just get in the way of Dashlane doing its thing. AKA filling in your passwords. 

Get started with these three steps, and you can always check back here for more tips.

Advertising Makes Us Unhappy — I love capitalism, but the title is true.  I used to do an exercise with Junior Achievement students to demonstrate how advertising slogans had completely permeated their brains.  They thought they were clever in remembering them, until I explained why they knew them.  Yes, every ad is designed to tell you one thing: You should not be content because you don’t have _______.

The solutions are to avoid advertising as much as possible (TV is the worst!) and to consciously analyze the ads you do see for the lies they are selling (“Drinking lots of this beer will make sexy women want me, and it definitely won’t make me fat and unproductive and lead to lots of bad decisions!”).

But we would do good to remember that the Bible places the blame for divisions on the ones bringing in the false doctrine, not on those who call it out. Paul writes in Romans 16:17: “I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them.” Notice that it was the false teachers who Paul criticizes for being divisive, not the believers.

At first I thought they were making a dig at dancing, as if it tastes bad.  But they meant it is super-healthy.  I agree, but I’d pick a better illustration than kale!

It’s worth noting that the mental and physical benefits of dancing aren’t just for the young at heart. “Dancing increases cognitive acuity at all ages.

So, About Those White, Heterosexual, Patriarchal Values… Once again, Leftists hate blacks.  There is a formulas for successful living, but instead of teaching it they mock it as the problem, not the solution.  They don’t want to help blacks, they want to profit off their misery and mine their votes.  Here’s the advice that triggered them:

“Get married before you have children and strive to stay married for their sake. Get the education you need for gainful employment, work hard, and avoid idleness. Go the extra mile for your employer or client. Be a patriot, ready to serve the country. Be neighborly, civic-minded, and charitable. Avoid coarse language in public. Be respectful of authority. Eschew substance abuse and crime.”

And the predictable Leftist response:

A coalition of students and alumni responded to the essay in predictable fashion.

The Babylon Bee: An Interview with Kyle Mann — Great interview!  Glad they are doing so well.

The Babylon Bee resonates with an enormous and enormously underserved audience: conservative Christians and their allies. This much-beleaguered readership is so often the object of sardonic ridicule that it has almost forgotten what it feels like to be in on the joke. In the Bee, traditionalists (and anyone who doesn’t want to see traditionalists chased out of the public square) have finally found a brand of smart, trendy irony that speaks to their concerns. It’s a feeling, as Mann himself puts it, of “hey, this is humorous and doesn’t hate me!”

Which is also why, when Snopes and CNN have tried to defame the Bee, fans of free speech everywhere have rallied to the site’s defense. “Snopes was kind of that annoying guy at a party, who’s like ‘actually that joke isn’t true!’” says Mann. Accusations of deceit look ludicrous when levied against headlines like “CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine to Spin News Before Publication.” And charges of intolerance or “punching down” have largely fizzled as the Bee (which in fact takes shots at everyone, in the tradition of the best satirists) has stood strong against SJW criticism.

Netflix Shows Features Child Corrupted by Drag — I say without exaggeration that anyone involved with this should be in jail.  So glad I canceled Netflix!

On Friday, January 10, Netflix premiered a new show co-created by drag queen RuPaul, titled AJ and the Queen [… which is] about a 10-year-old child who accompanies Robert (RuPaul), a gay male drag performer who goes by “Ruby Red,” as he travels across the country performing in drag shows at mostly gay bars. …

The child, AJ (Izzy G.), is the daughter of a drug-addicted prostitute. She wants to be a boy “because people leave boys alone.” She hides her long hair under a boyish hat and does her best to look and act like a 10-year-old boy instead of a girl. The show is one long exposure of this child to sexualized adult situations in which she does not belong, all under the guise of the drag queen and the child “bonding” cross-country.

We look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
