Fake news about fake news

The entire “fake news” agenda is a desperate attempt by the Left to make excuses for why Hillary lost.  But most people get their news from the mainstream media (uh, hence the adjective, “mainstream”).  The Left dominates media, entertainment and education, so they are the main source for the fakery.

But in typical Leftist fashion they project their awful traits onto their opposition.  Fortunately this gaming will just expose them that much more for the phonies that they are and will keep them from doing the kind of self-reflection that would lead to successful changes for them.

Fake news: Michael Brown had his hands up and was retreating when he was killed in Ferguson

Fake news: If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor (One of the most brazen, oft-repeated, well-documented, cynical, crystal clear lies of all time)

Fake news: Bill Clinton was talking about grandkids with Loretta Lynch and not making a deal to keep his wife from being charged with multiple felonies

Fake news: Minimum wage increases don’t reduce jobs

Fake news: Benghazi was caused by an Internet video

Fake news: Hillary’s “random” photo ops to try and humanize her in the woods and at the grocery store.  They just “happened” to involve “strangers” whom she knew.

Fake news: Harry Reid lying about Romney’s taxes

Fake news: Brian Williams was so bad that NBC suspended him and then transferred him to MSNBC

Fake news: Be sure to ask Dan Rather what he thinks

Fake news: 10% of the population is “gay” — reality: ~2-3%

Fake news: Election hacking in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania

Fake news: Trump can’t win

Fake news: The winner of the 1976 Men’s Olympic decathlon is now a female

Fake news: NBC editing the George Zimmerman tape to make him sound racist & GM’s “exploding” gas tanks, the Rolling Stone “rape” story, and more

“Christian” Left post-election meltdown: Pass the popcorn.

Note: I’ll continue to update this at the bottom.  Their “Oh, the humanity” hypocrisy and drama won’t end soon.  Is it a sin to be intoxicated from drinking “Christian” Leftist tears?  Because they are truly schadenfreudelicious!

It couldn’t happen to a bunch of more ravenous wolves.  The “Christian” Leftists are really over the top after Trump’s win.  While even Hillary was able to be a good loser in her speech (although that may have just been a “Please don’t put me in jail, Donald!” message) and Obama has thus far been gracious to Trump because of how Bush was so gracious to Obama, those are far better than the reactions of the rest of the “Christian” Left.

They’re going to reverse and erase everything President Obama did. They don’t even try to keep it a secret.

No kidding! I can’t believe they actually typed that. Obama and the media repeatedly lied about Obamacare and more, used the IRS to punish his enemies, tried to destroy the military, expanded perversions 24×7 and more. Yes, we’ll want to reverse and erase that.

Donald Trump’s win tells people of color they aren’t welcome in America

Nope. Hateful, racist comments like that are what helped Trump win. Why did so many people, including Democrats, vote for Trump? Because the Left said that no matter what they did they were evil racists. Nice move, champs.  I didn’t vote for Trump or Hillary, but the “Christian” Left made me want to vote for Trump.

And the Left’s unhinged hatred for all things conservative came back to bite them.  Even a mild-mannered centrist like President Bush had to be denounced as Hitler, etc. and blamed for every ill in the country (most caused by the Left, like the housing bubble).  Eventually people were immunized to the hyperbole.  Their shrill hatred of Trump just bounced off people.

a

Can someone please explain how and why we’re supposed to polite and supportive about the fact that 20,000,000 people are going to be kicked off of health insurance, including members of the TCL admin team?

Yes, I can: There is nothing in the Constitution or the Bible saying that you get to have the government — at the point of a gun — take money from your neighbor to give to you.   Where is their compassion for all those getting bankrupted by the outrageous costs of Obamacare?  Oh, right, they don’t care about others, just themselves.  Check.  We’ve got lots of great ideas about making health care more affordable, but the Democrats did Obamacare all on their own.  Oh, and we donate our own money to help people.

Has there ever been a time when a presidential election result struck fear into the hearts of millions of children? How could Trump voters be this cruel?

Wow.  Those Molech-worshiping ghouls couldn’t be more tone-deaf.  First, it was their shrill media striking fear into the kids.  Trump just said he wanted to protect our borders, as any sane country would.  And never forget that the “Christian” Left loudly and proudly insists that you can not only kill your children up to their first breath for any reason, but that your neighbors should have to pay for it.  And then they pretend to care about children?!  Another 3,500 children got crushed and dismembered today, without anesthetic, because of the compassionate, loving “Christian” Left.

One of their posts was a video from serial liar and false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way but He sure is a bigot” Currie.  His first fear-mongering point was that women may no longer be able to kill their unwanted children up to their first breath.  To the “Christian” Left, that’s terrible.  He blasphemously said that Jesus agrees with him!  And of course he conflated legal and illegal immigration.  And he got preachy about Trump’s issues while ignoring how Currie himself has always bragged about taking his young daughters to gay pride parades.

They also denied that Trump has a mandate, even though Obama & the Leftists went from owning the Presidency, House and Senate to losing them all.

Then they plugged a “prayer to heal the nation” that includes a laundry list of false teachers as well as Muslims (because the “Christian” Left and Muslims both pray to the same god — i.e., the god of this world).

That’s why Christians are so different from the “Christian” Left.  Our beliefs about Jesus, the Bible, etc. drive our thinking and behavior.  Some Christians couldn’t vote for Trump out of conscience, and some did to avoid a much greater evil in Hillary. But the “Christian” Left wanted Hillary and Bernie because of their evils: Unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortions, forced wealth redistribution, pushing every kind of sexual perversion, eliminating free speech, eliminating the ability to defend oneself, and so much more.  They thought her felonies were no big deal.

If they want to vent, they should direct it at their beloved Leftist media and the DNC, who worked overtime to give us Donald Trump.  But their creation was too powerful and turned on them.

And of course the “Christian” Left used the election loss to beg for money for their site. Apparently it costs lots of money to promote abortion, sexual perversions and heresies on Facebook.  Maybe if they abandoned those evils and contributed to society then they’d have more money and could help their neighbors.

It was surreal to go back to their site, as I hadn’t visited in a very long time.  Such a contrast to the authentic Christian pages I saw, where people would critique Hillary and Trump but always trust in the sovereignty of God and the real Gospel.  But the “Christian” Left quivers as those who have no real hope.  They are lost, and they somehow manage to be wolves and snowflakes at the same time.  Matthew 7:15–16 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

May God grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will (2 Tim. 2).


Updates!

Human suffering on a massive scale will soon commence and the corporate media will ignore it. To add to the massive suffering most economists say Trump’s economic policies will crash the economy.

Yep.  Dogs and cats, living together, etc. will happen if, say, you appoint judges to the Supreme Court who think decisions should be based on the Constitution, if you prevent elected officials from immediately becoming lobbyists when they leave office, etc.  Most of what Trump wants are things that Bernie Sanders would say.

Anyone on this page who thinks the Donald Trump Presidency is “God’s will” please leave the page now. Most people who say that are full on hypocrites anyway. They apply Romans 13 to Republican politicians only and dismiss it completely when Democrats are elected.

The only way this is “God’s will” is if God is allowing the tribulation to begin. Conservative ideology is the opposite of God’s will. All it produces is human suffering except for the rich and the Military Industrial Complex. It’s dog eat dog, the strongest shall prevail, crush the least of these social Darwinism. It is the opposite of every single thing Jesus taught.

They are so thin-skinned that they ban anyone who thinks it is wrong to kill children up their first breath and to force others to pay for it.  And they don’t understand our views. Countless Christians I know have said that either Trump or Clinton would be God’s will and his judgment on us.  And their social Darwinism comment is priceless.  They literally preach about Darwin in their “Christian” Left churches on “Darwin Day” and mock those who deny it.  Then they pull up the drawbridge when we point out that social Darwinism would necessarily follow from their worldview.  And these pro-abortion ghouls live out their social Darwinism daily!  Trump was a moral freak for mocking the handicapped guy, but the “Christian” Left would have supported that guy being killed in the womb for his disability.

This is the kind of thing that the race-baiting Left — including the “Christian” Left — fosters daily:

The white guy was obviously racist for voting for Trump, and the “Christian” Left fights aggressively to ensure that the victims can’t protect themselves with guns.  Because love.

The “Christian” Left is now pretending to care for the white working class, even though they cheered as Obama & Co. kept their promise to bankrupt the coal industry and ignored how Obama has done nothing for low-income blacks except try to force whites to pay for their abortions (to kill more blacks!) and to import millions of illegals to take the jobs and suppress the wages of low-income blacks.

They pretend to care about Trump’s Russia connections — you know, the ones that conservatives have expressed concern about for a long time — but they didn’t care how Hillary literally sold out U.S. interests for profit.

As you’d expect, these perverts think that men should be able to go in the bathroom with girls, so of course that means to oppose it is being anti-LGBTQX.  The “Christian” Left mocks Jesus at every turn.

It is also helpful to note what the “Christian” Left is not celebrating, as it highlights how cynical and hypocritical they are.  Did they note that Tim Scott was elected to a full term in South Carolina?  Nope, doesn’t fit into their evil race-baiting meme.  Did they note that Trump’s campaign manager was the first female in that role — and that the evil Trump picked her?!  Nope, doesn’t fit into their misogyny meme.

See how “Christian” Leftist Tim Kaine completely mangles the Bible, missing the point about God’s grace and acting like Hillary is God.  Really glad he won’t be VP.

And now they are whining about the electoral college, as if they just discovered how that works.

a

“Christian” Leftists like false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way but He sure is a bigot” Currie and Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis are mainly disappointed that they’ll lose their perks of being tools for the Obama administration.  Wallis is a race-baiter at his core.

We’re hoping Bernie Sanders filibusters the repeal of the ACA in the Senate, and any other extreme policy the Republicans try to foist on us. It’s our only hope for the next two years.

Bernie is too busy furnishing his 3rd house to filibuster anything.  Because Socialism.  And climate change.  And hypocrisy.  And gullible “Christian” Leftists who gave him money.

Gee, why would the average American consider voting for Trump instead of a Democrat?

a

Friendly reminder: Don’t spend too much time commenting at their Facebook page.  They are snowflakes who can’t stand anything resembling dissent.  Even “Christian” Leftists get blocked if they note how over-the-top the site owners are.

The only thing sweeter than the tears of celebrities for Clinton is that of “Christian” Leftists.  First their non-Christian hero Bernie got shafted by their favorite political party, then “Christian” Leftist Hillary lost.

The “Christian” Left is too dishonest or too busy playing the race card to note that Trump did better with minorities than Romney — and that’s after another 4 years of shameless 24×7 Leftist race-baiting!

They don’t know or don’t care that Hillary said things like this:

The “Christian” Left doesn’t care about the truth.  Via Being a Liberal Means Being a Hypocrite 2:

I am seeing a lot of people posting about how they didn’t know so many of their friends hated the LGBT community, Muslims, and women by voting Trump.
But, THIS is the kind of willful ignorance that has our country in the current mess that she’s in.
Trump defeated a woman who is funded by countries who literally murder the LGBT community for simply being LGBT and women for not toeing the line of sharia law.
He defeated a woman who has been accused of silencing sexual assaultand rape victims and/or covering up the crimes.
He defeated a woman who is on a recording, cackling over the fact that she got a child rapist a light sentence.
He defeated a woman who took money that was supposed to help devastated Haitians and paid for her daughter’s wedding.
I could go on.
If you want to support Clinton, that’s fine, but you need to own it and you need to see her for what she is, which is nothing more than a corrupt, nasty, power-hungry criminal who was out for no one but herself.

Note how racist Trump is with the hiring of his transition team head!

Look at this Leftist logic:

Bernie Sanders summarized his views succinctly and we agree. “To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him. To the degree that he isn’t we will vigorously oppose him.” (Paraphrase)

Here’s my paraphrase: If we agree with you, we’ll agree with you, but if we don’t we’ll fight.  Sheesh. I don’t object to their sentiment, just the idea that his statement meant anything.

This is what the “Christian” Left fosters.  Because “love wins,” right?

a

Final thought: The Left has actively opposed the 1st Amendment for years, trying to shut down Christian and conservative thought by calling it “hate speech.”  Will they re-think that precious Amendment when Trump tries to control the press?  These folks are as bad as the Republicans when they get in power.  They can’t think 15 minutes into the future so they forget that the exceptions they make could haunt them later.  Welcome to the world you created, Leftists. Without the “Christian” Left extremist abortion and sexual perversion agendas Trump would never have been elected.

With false teacher Rachel Held Evans as the author you can judge a book by its cover

Note: An update after her death on 5/4/2019 is at the bottom.

fake3Faux evangelical Rachel Held Evans wrote A Year of Biblical Womanhood: How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on Her Roof, Covering Her Head, and Calling Her Husband “Master” and in this case you can judge a book by its cover.  Evans sets out to mock the word of God that she claims to believe, and she succeeds before you even open the book. This is why the “Christian” Left loves her and why she gets so much Leftist media attention.

Exhibit A: The picture and subtitle of Evans on the roof relates to Proverbs 21:9 (and repeated in Proverbs 25:4) “It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.”

You don’t need a PhD in theology to see how badly — and deliberately? — she misapplied the verse.

  1. It isn’t a literal command to anyone. It is a colorful illustration teaching the wisdom of not marrying someone who is quarrelsome. It isn’t immoral to marry such a person, but it also isn’t particularly wise.  It wouldn’t be pleasant to live on the corner of your roof (they had flat roofs), but it would be more unpleasant to have a quarrelsome wife.
  2. The biblical illustration doesn’t have the quarrelsome person on the roof, it has her suffering spouse there.
  3. It was not a punishment, it was a metaphorical escape.

Evans didn’t let those pesky and obvious details got in the way of mocking the word of God.  She accomplished exactly what she wanted to in this book.  Her message is basically this: “Hey people, I am totally a Christian, but let me show you how silly the Bible can be.  If you find something there you think you like then that’s great, but you shouldn’t take it seriously.”

So before you even open the book you can know that she is a false teacher and enemy of the real God (as are her editors and publishers who approved it).  The only way to miss it is to not read the verses (false teachers thrive on the biblical ignorance of their followers) or to share her view that the Bible is a foolish, man-made book.

But it gets worse as Evans continues to sit in judgment of the word of God.  Referring to her parents, she said:

they seemed to know instinctively that rules that left people guilt-ridden, exhausted, and confused were not really from God.

Uh, sure.  Anything you don’t like or understand isn’t from God.  That’s Creating a God in Your Own Image 101.

Then there is this:

as a woman I have been nursing a secret grudge against the apostle Paul for about eight years.

Note how she tips her hand about her belief that the writings of Paul weren’t inspired by the Holy Spirit.  The Apostle Peter had her number 2,000 years ago:

2 Peter 3:15–16 And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.

And like all “Christian” Left feminists, she falsely targets Paul and she ignores that Jesus only selected men as apostles.  Does she think Jesus was a misogynist, or that even though He was the creator of the universe that He was afraid to upset the Pharisees’ sensibilities?

Worse yet, she accuses the authors of the Bible of being blasphemous liars, allegedly speaking for God in literally hundreds of passages when it was “really” what they wanted.  She quoted this with her approval:

God never told the Israelites to kill the Canaanites. The Israelites believed that God told them to kill the Canaanites.

So Evans also disagrees with Jesus, who affirmed the Old Testament down to its smallest details, and insists – without evidence — that massive sections of the Bible are lies.  Or could it be that Evans is believing what she wants God to be and that she is the liar?  I suppose she thinks that the command against making a God in your own image is just another one of those passages that the writers made up.  Anyone who has actually read the Old Testament would know that passage after passage refers to the Israelites taking over the Promised Land.  Evans insists that all of those are not only lies, but blasphemous lies.  What else would it be if you falsely blamed God for what would have been unjustified mass murder and land-stealing?

Evans told people that voting for Hillary Clinton is “pro-life.”  You have to be a true Molech-worshiping ghoul to hold that view.  Hillary is inseparable from Planned Parenthood and the rest of the pro-choice extremists — including the “Christian” Left – who not only insist on legal abortions up to to child’s first breath but want more abortions via taxpayer-funding.  Yet for Evans that was the only “Christian” option.  Indeed.

Evans posted countless pictures and gushing commentary over the #womensmarch #abortionmarch but was nearly silent for the #MarchforLife — and even then she only criticized it. “Christian” Leftists really tip their hands that way, claiming to be pro-life while being the true pro-abortion extremists. If they really believed what they said they’d be opening up pregnancy centers all over. Instead, they reflexively support anything Planned Parenthood does.

And you’d think that Mrs. “Oh noes, the patriarchy!!” would find some way to criticize Islam, which has treated women inhumanely for 1,500 years.  But she was silent.

While she was quick to play the fallacious race card against Christians, don’t miss where Racist Held Evans goes on a hypocritical rant lamenting how if Roe v Wade is overturned then less minority children will be killed.  She also accused pro-lifers of being racist and not knowing that we save mostly minority lives.  Who knew?  She deleted the Tweets when people outed her but I saved them as a public service.  It was epic.

I’ll buy a Christian book by someone whose primary self-descriptor is “doubt-filled” right after I buy one from a mathematician who doubts that 2+2=4.  Having some matters you haven’t completely studied is one thing. For example, I hadn’t delved deeply into continuation/cessation particulars until recently, so I didn’t blog about it. But if you are so doubt-filled that it defines your faith, maybe you should read instead of write.

Also note how she has no doubts about abortion being legal to the child’s first breath, that you can change your gender, that LGBTQX behaviors are not sins, that women should be pastors, etc.  Oddly enough, when her views line up with the world’s she has no doubts at all.

You can also know Evans is a false teacher by those she promotes and partners with.  She works directly with Nadia Bolz-Weber, who, among other things, says there is “no shame in ethically sourced porn,” that “the Bible’s not clear about [s%#^]!” and so much more  (Just as Evans claims that “It [the Bible] fails massively at getting to the point”). This isn’t some loose pairing, either.  They co-host a freak show called Why Christian each year and endorse each other’s work..

Also check out Jes Kast, whom Evans adores, and see if her theology is biblical, or Glennon Doyle Melton, the “super mom” who left her husband to be with a lesbian.

Evans is a typical Leftist hypocrite, believing ridiculous phonies like Kristine Blasey Ford (Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser) but dismissing credible stories of abuse by the wife of prominent “Christian” Left pastor Tony Jones – who just “happens” to help with her conferences. Go figure.

As bad as the self-avowed “Christian” Leftists are, at least they own their label (sans the scare quotes).  Evans masquerades as an Evangelical while holding “Christian” Leftist views, which makes her even worse than them.

She’s been really cranky since Trump won.  She completely ignores all the sex scandals and cover-ups from Leftist politicians, celebrities and journalists and completely fixates on Donald Trump.  She won’t admit it, but I think it is pretty obvious that she planned to have a role with Caesar – er, uh, Hillary — just like she did with Obama.  Trump has false teacher Paula White, Obama had – and Hillary probably would have had – Mrs. Evans.

And her latest book is just more blasphemy, where she titled it Inspired but obviously believes it isn’t.  Typical disingenuous behavior on her part.

Run, don’t walk, from faux evangelicals like Evans. In her own words and deeds she shows how much she loves the world and not Jesus.


Update: Truly sad that she died, especially having young kids.  But I have to be candid: When I read the comments of those who supported her and were affirmed by her, I am reminded at how wicked her “ministry” was. These were typical:

Be mad at God. Be mad at the Universe. Be mad. Be mad. Be mad.

4 hours ago   I had permission to explore LGBTQ+ affirming theology & eventually come out as bisexual. She was one of the first affirming Christians I encountered in my research, & her loud support is directly tied to who I am today.

37 minutes ago The door she opened for me by saying it’s okay to be angry at the church and it’s okay to leave, led to a thousand other open doors and new pathways that created who I am now: a queer Christian woman who no longer fears the white cisheteropatriarchy.

3 hours ago   I first started exploring Side A theology, which has led to me being in a wonderful, loving, gay relationship. I’m able to be myself and live my best life because of her opening my eyes.

4 hours ago  I’m an openly queer woman serving as an elder in my church . I never could have reconciled feminism and Christianity all those years ago without her.

If that’s what she encouraged people to do then it is a tragic legacy.

Someone wrote this in response to a blog post noting Evans’ bad theology:

Rude. Heartless. So inappropriate. Can you picture Christ responding like this – calling someone an apostate immediately after their untimely death? I don’t think so. I don’t know what god you guys are serving, but it doesn’t reflect the God that I know.

The commenter was tone-deaf to the fact that that’s exactly how Jesus will respond when someone dies — either with judgment or with “well done, good and faithful servant.” Someone rightly pointed out what Jesus said about untimely deaths:

Luke 13:1–5 There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

Not surprisingly, Evan’s fans reject what Jesus said.

The error of broad-brushing economic statistics

Putting all the blame or credit on one leader is incorrect. You have to look at what specific policies they drove and actually implemented and what the effects were.

Should Clinton get all the credit for the 90’s? Absolutely not. Clinton should send thank-you’s to the 90’s Republicans who prevented him from implementing many of his policies. He should also thank the PC business / Internet boom which drove the phenomenal growth of the decade. He benefited from the Internet bubble and the massive productivity gains and business growth, while Bush was impacted negatively by the bursting of the Internet bubble. Clinton didn’t create the technology boom and Bush didn’t burst the bubble, but the stats of both are impacted by them.

And the problems at the end of Bush’s term were largely from the race-baiting housing bubble driven by Democrats — the very thing they are doing again!.  Sadly, they were able to exploit people’s ignorance on the matter, with the help of the Democrats and their media allies who ignored or lied about the root causes.  That not only led to us getting Obama, but they pretended that a President couldn’t make real changes in one term.  Ugh.

A post I never thought I’d see

A surprising and impressive post from a pro-Hillary Liberal blog written (I think) by some gays —  Thank you former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush

We know absolutely no one in Bush family circles and have never met former President George W. Bush or his wife Laura.

If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of “Dubya” nearly every day…parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker.

Oh, how we RAILED against Bush in 2000…and how we RAILED against the surge in support Bush received post-9/11 when he went to Ground Zero and stood there with his bullhorn in the ruins on that hideous day.

We were convinced that ANYONE who was president would have done what Bush did, and would have set that right tone of leadership in the wake of that disaster. President Gore, President Perot, President Nader, you name it. ANYONE, we assumed, would have filled that role perfectly.

Well, we told you before how much the current president, Dr. Utopia, made us realize just how wrong we were about Bush.  We shudder to think what Dr. Utopia would have done post-9/11.  He would have not gone there with a bullhorn and struck that right tone.  More likely than not, he would have been his usual fey, apologetic self and waxed professorially about how evil America is and how justified Muslims are for attacking us, with a sidebar on how good the attacks were because they would humble us.

Honestly, we don’t think President Gore would have been much better that day.  The world needed George W. Bush, his bullhorn, and his indominable spirit that day…and we will forever be grateful to this man for that.

As we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this week, with no media attention, when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.

FOR HOURS.

The Bushes went and met privately with these families for HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.

If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them that a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.

You may be as surprised by this as we are ourselves, but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and the other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.

Criticize their policies academically and intelligently and discuss the Bush presidency in historical and political terms…but you mess with the Bushes personally and, from this day forward, you’ll answer to us.

We hope someday to be able to thank George W. and Laura in person for all they’ve done, and continue to do.  They didn’t have to head to Ft. Hood.  That was not their responsibility.

The Obamas should have done that.

But didn’t.

Wouldn’t.

Thank goodness George W. is still on his watch, with wonderful Laura at his side.

We are blessed as a nation to have these two out there…just as we are blessed to have the Clintons on the job, traveling the world doing the good they do.

And we are blessed to have Dick Cheney, wherever he is, keeping tabs on all that’s going on and speaking out when the current administration does anything too reckless and dangerous.

Cheney’s someone else we villainized and maligned in the past who we were also wrong about.  There has never been a Vice President, including Gore, Biden, or Mondale, who was more supportive of gay rights than “Darth Cheney”. There has never been a Vice President more spot-on right about the dangers facing this country from Islamic terrorism.

We live in strange, strange times indeed.

We are now officially committed fans of George W. and Laura Bush.  We are fans of Dick Cheney.  Our gratitude for them makes us newly protective of them, and the continued role they play in this country.

After the primary battle of 2008, we never thought we’d go back to Texas for anything, but sometime in 2010 we want to find some event in Dallas the Bushes will be at so at least one of us can go up to them, tell them we are deeply sorry for ever thinking ill of them, and thank them from the bottom of our hearts for their service to America.

We’re sure they will just stare at us and wonder why these gay Chicagoans are crying, but we don’t think we can get through a meeting with them without being emotional.

What they did at Ft. Hood for those families humbles us.  Every day, the Bushes are most likely doing something just like it behind the scenes.

We hope if any of you encounter them you will let them know this is deeply appreciated beyond partisan lines.

We will never look at the Bushes, the Bush presidencies, or their legacies the same again…and someday when his presidential library is built, we will be so proud to visit there and tell anyone will listen about November 10th, 2009, the day we finally appreciated former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura.

Thank you for your service, Mr. President.  We’re sorry we didn’t appreciate you while you were in office, but we thank Heaven we’ve wised up and can see the good you are out there doing, under the radar, today.

Roundup

Clinton to Receive Planned Parenthood’s Highest Award, named after eugenicist Margaret Sanger.  What a vile award. It speaks volumes that Clinton would be a recipient.  PP tries to downplay Sanger’s eugenics work as if it was just some quirky trait, but it was foundational to her philosophy.  Among other things, she would bribe black ministers so they would encourage their congregations to be sterilized.

eugenics [(yooh-jen-iks)] – The idea that one can improve the human race by careful selection of those who mate and produce offspring.

Note: Eugenics was a popular theory in the early twentieth century but is no longer taken seriously, primarily because of the horrors of the eugenic efforts of the Nazi regime in Germany.

Enjoy your award, Hillary.  Sanger would be proud that you aggressively support abortion policies that eliminate blacks at three times the rate of whites.

The Right to Bear Arms: Successes of the Week — Yea for well armed citizens and concealed weapons permits!  If only the media would trumpet these successes then perhaps more bad guys would consider another line of work — or at least a less violent form of theft, such as politics.  Criminals understand odds better than you think.

Rights, Religion, and the Soul of the Nation — Timely piece on a foundational issue with socialism and communism.  Polls show that “70% of mainline clergy believe the government should play a more active role in solving social problems and 90% of UCC clergy support more active government intervention in social issues,” and some “Christian” pastors (the fake kind) think that is something to be proud of.  But the consequences of government attempting to provide everything are horrific.  They fail miserably and leave drastic unintended consequences in their wake.

The idea that everyone has a right to everything and that it will all be provided by an omniscient and presumably beneficent government is a seductive one. Justice is, after all, a Christian virtue. In reality, however, a world of rights and distributive justice is dry, heartless, and dehumanizing. It is a world driven entirely by duty and, as such, it is a world that makes generosity and gratitude—two basic religious impulses—impossible. To use Martin Luther’s terms, it is a world of law with no room for grace. Where demands and duty rule the day, charity is superfluous. Schall writes:

“In a socialist world, no charity can exist because there can be no need that is unfulfilled by the commonality’s duty. It is a world in which there can be no gratitude. I can thank someone for giving me what is really his. I cannot thank him for giving me what is by rights already mine. “

9 Things the Media Messed Up About the Obama Stem Cell Story – Only nine?  Seriously, it is sad and scary how incompetent and/or complicit the media is in perpetuating so many lies about this important issue.

Check out this video and story about a pop song dealing with leaving the “gay” lifestyle (you know, another one of those people who don’t exist)

Italy’s “Festival di San Remo,” the most important musical happening in my country which is seen on T.V. by millions of Italians, became the unlikely platform this year for a powerful ex-gay testimony. The singer, Giuseppe Povia, winner of the festival in 2006, presented a song entitled, “Luca Era Gay” (Luca was once gay)  The title of his song, implying that some gays can change to heterosexuality, was sufficient to destabilize the Italian gay movement. Gay activists threatened to block the festival, and Europarlimentary member Vittorio Agnoletto asked for a European resolution to stop Povia from peforming the song. Povia, himself, received death threats. The gay association “Everyone” denounced Povia to the Procura of the Republic for alleged “homophobia.” These efforts failing, gay activists then asked the Festival organizers to “counterbalance” Povia with a song by a gay singer, about “the perfection of homosexual love.” That effort too, failed.

Bill Clinton flunks basic biology – He stated multiple times that embryos aren’t fertilized.  The press would have skewered McCain, Palin or President Bush for saying something so wrong. 

Blogroll addition: Zoo Station.  Check it out.  It has been in my blog reader forever but I didn’t realize he wasn’t on my blogroll.

Minnesota offers mortages to Muslims that pretend to be without interest – No religious preferences there, eh?  I wonder if they don’t take the tax deduction for the interest?  If so, I suppose that helps the tax receipts for the Feds.  The ACLU is going crazy over this, of course.  Oh, wait, no they aren’t.

Use aborted foetus organs in transplants, urges scientist 

Kidneys and livers from aborted foetuses could be given to the desperately ill and ease the organ donor shortage, a leading scientist has claimed.

But the proposal has horrified pro-life and Christian groups, who say it is ‘morally abhorrent’, and raises the prospect of abortions being timed to suit transplant patients.

Yeah, those crazy pro-lifers and Christians think we shouldn’t grow human beings just to kill them and take their organs.

But Professor Stuart Campbell, who has argued for the abortion time limit to be lowered, had no ethical objections to the proposal.

He said many babies were aborted quite late, ‘and if they are going to be terminated, it is a shame to waste their organs’.

He added: ‘I am sure very few of those on the transplant list would rather die than accept an organ from an aborted foetus.’

Well, that seals the deal.  They might not mind taking an organ from a prisoner or homeless person, either.
