The Portland school board has provided us with a harbinger of things to come. They were about to adopt a fir tree as the mascot for their schools, but suddenly had second thoughts. Wait a minute! Those trees… they might be—oh, no!—racist trees. After all, “trees” were often used in lynchings. That would make them racist.
First, you can hardly hope to wreck a civilization unless you can trash its arts and, at the same time, make it virtually impossible for people to communicate with one another. The nitwits in the Oxford University Music Dept. know that. So they’re thinking of getting rid of… musical notation.
We pay for public schooling. “Public money” is our money, which we worked for, paid out in local, state, and federal taxes. You’d think we’d have some kind of a say as to what gets taught in those schools, and by whom. And yet we don’t. They take our money and do as they please.
You’d almost think it was our technology itself that’s turned against us; but really it’s the pipsqueaks who own the technology who are looking to devour us. And you thought “The Hunger Games” was science fiction.
So we work. We plod on through good times and bad, wars and rumors of wars, crisis after crisis: we work to spread the good news of the Gospel, to give hope to a fallen world and light to the darkness. There is still great wickedness afoot, and we have to deal with it. And there will be times when it seems there is no path to victory.
In Canada the Peel Regional schools, covering three suburbs of Toronto, have hatched a scheme that has even a lot of the “experts” on the warpath. Here’s what they want to do. If one child in your child’s class tests positive for COVID, school officials want you to take your child home and “self-isolate” him in one room for 14 days. During that time, he must stay in the room and not come out...
Somewhere along the way, public servants became the public’s masters. Paternalism is hard to bear even when it’s well-meaning, and benign. But when the paternalists despise the people that they govern—well, that’s where we are now. Two examples will suffice.
When I was seven years old, Hungarian state police opened fire on a student protest and launched the Hungarian Revolution. That was on Oct. 23. By Nov. 10, Russian troops had crushed the uprising and the victorious communists broke all their promises to reform the government. Hungary would not be free until the Iron Curtain crumbled, a whole generation later.
We were inundated this weekend with emails begging for funds for assorted Republican politicians. You know—the ones who were nowhere to be found when our president needed them. The ones who were nowhere to be found when we needed them. And now they want our money. Now they’ve got the tin cups in their hands.
For instance: In Merrie Olde England recently, police arrested a woman for… singing in her back yard. You really ought to click the link and watch the embedded video. It’s scary stuff.
Their current target is Donald Trump, former president and now a private citizen like you or me. If they can convict him of something, anything, then they can ensure he’ll never be allowed to run again. So far, so good!
But they aren’t calling it an Iron Curtain. Globalists have a nicer name for it: The Great Reset. You’ll like it, really. It’s all for your own good, and owned and operated by The Smartest People in the World. Just obey; and, as Col. Saito said in The Bridge Over the River Kwai, “Be happy in your work.” Because we’ll lock you in the sweat-box if you don’t.
resident Donald Trump incited a riot at the Capitol. The riots incited by the Democrats for the past four years don’t count. Those riots included several invasions of the Capitol, by leftists—remember Code Pink barging in on Congress? But that was okay. Also okay was the spectacle of a leftist mob pounding on the doors to disrupt Brett Kavanagh’s swearing-in as a Supreme Court justice.
Do I know what to do about it? No, I don’t. We’ve never dealt with such a colossal crime before. We are asked to submit to a government that has no right to be there. I can only pray that we will not.
I’m also getting a dozen or more emails every day from Mitch McConnell and other aphids calling on me to pour more of my own money into the U.S. Senate race in Georgia. In the wake of McConnell & Co. giving up on President Trump and conceding the White House to Biden the Fraud, I find their schnorring really hard to take.
Christmas Eve today, and Christmas Day tomorrow—I don’t feel like writing about politics, and I don’t blame you if you’d rather not read anything about politics. With a stolen election hanging over our heads, our country is in the most danger it has faced since World War II. We are looking down the barrel at the end of our republic.
How do you govern a country when roughly half the citizens, and very likely more, believe you have no right to govern them at all? Because you lied, cheated, and stole votes to rig an election: that’s how you got your power.
What if, instead of attacking America’s Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, the Japanese sought to dominate America politically, economically, financially? What if they had access to technology that would allow them to corrupt American leaders and meddle successfully in American elections?
Globalists want a global government. They’ve wanted it for years; and right now, they’re closer than they’ve ever been to achieving it. And they can do it, too—if only they can solve a few simple problems.
If COVID-19 is as deadly as they say it is, how come they’re not afraid of it? How come their pet rioters aren’t dying off like flies after crowding into the streets? But as long as you can dictate the outcome of a national election, it’s What Me Worry for them and Shut Up and Pay Your Taxes for us. This is a shame to us, and it must not be allowed to stand.
But I have also described our mainstream nooze media. Totally in the bag for Democrats, and the world’s most practiced fear merchants—that’s them. That’s “journalism.” And it’s by no means unjust to call what they dish out “fear porn.”
The best thing this crime has going for it is its sheer enormity. Fixing an election makes fixing the World Series look like child’s play. But they now have the technology, and the money, to do it—one accidentally-on-purpose “computer glitch” after another, just to name one of many tricks employed.
Communists have always liked to say you have to break eggs to make an omelet, although never in history did they ever get past the egg-breaking stage. But what we’re talking about here is breaking all the eggs. All of them. And depend on this: if they ever do get back into power, Democrats will change the rules so that they’ll never be turned out of power again.
Now it’s over fifty years later: and the new CEO of the Sacramento Bee has a plan to tie his reporters’ pay to the number of clicks their stories get. And those reporters are horrified.
Recently a group of “pro-life evangelicals, some of them noted biblical scholars” (according to the Christian Post) endorsed abortion-happy Joe Biden for president. We are not given their names, nor told who has “noted” them as, ahem, “biblical scholars.” But we do know that Biden has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood: seems like funny company for “biblical scholars” to be keeping.
Imagine how upset they’ll be if they lose the election in November. But as joyous an occasion as that would be, it won’t make them go away. Only several decades’ worth of long, hard work can possibly accomplish that. And even then we’ll need God’s blessing—because leftist politics is Original Sin at work.
We may also wonder why we stand for such abuse, why we let them get away with it. Well, ordinary people are often at a disadvantage when dealing with fanatics. Evil is usually permitted to run wild for a time before we pluck up the courage to smack it down. Which we will have an opportunity to do, this November.
I saw a rather bizarre sight the other day. Children were coming out of St. Francis’ school, across the street: all of them wearing face masks. Instead of laughing and talking as they always do, they were completely silent. And to pay their deep respects to Social Distancing, they walked with their arms outstretched in front of them, as if they were wearing blindfolds.
First he banned “Critical Race Theory” from being “taught” to federal employees in just about every branch of the bureaucracy. “Critical Race Theory,” a poison concocted by our academic establishment, proclaims that all white people are evil, born racists, to blame for everything that’s ever been wrong in our country...
Rutherford County, Tennessee, “school officials” are demanding that parents sign a waiver promising not to listen in on their kids’ lessons in the virtual classroom. This would be the remote learning provided by the school district, using its own teachers. They want the poor devils who pay for all this “education” to waive their rights as parents...
Defund the universities. Throw out, as garbage, the whole inane idea that everybody has to go to college. It’s only the absurd expansion of our higher education system that has created jobs for fools like this twaddler at Western Michigan. You could buy a nice house for the money that you blew on college.
Our colleges and universities are poisoning our country. Look at the riots: multitudes of white middle-class college students, useful idiots. But let’s look at two examples of what the colleges are…uh, “teaching” them
A big-name “educator,” one Mathew Kay, recently complained on Twitter about parents overhearing the content of online lessons and trying to butt in. He thinks they should butt out. Millions of kids are now in virtual classrooms, online, with schools closed due to the coronavirus panic.
I grew up believing in Evolution, because that’s what I was exposed to and I never heard anybody question it. But now a lot of people question it, including me—because it just doesn’t make sense.
Millions of school-age kids and college students today are learning at home, learning online. Why send them back to the same public schools that these same conservatives have denounced, and rightfully so, as indoctrination centers? Why send them back?
Rational thought, hard work, and intact families—according to a “portal” put up by the Smithsonian Institution, and quickly taken down again, that’s all white people’s stuff, and Persons Of Color (POCs) have only, well, borrowed and internalized them because that bad ol’ white culture is dominant.
Why is it that every socialist nabob in every country where they exist winds up as rich as flaming Croesus? What—is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez not yet a millionaire? But then she’s only just started. Bernie Sanders didn’t start out rich, but he is now.
Our country was set up as a republic whose people governed themselves through their elected representatives. Laws didn’t just materialize out of the ether. They had to be proposed, publicly debated, and then voted on by the legislature. At every step of the process was room for further discussion and possible amendment.
This is the age of panic. The wise and prudent, turned into fools, and our entire ruling class—politicians, banks, big corporations, professional sports leagues, social media platforms, Hollywood, teachers’ unions, college professors—is stampeding to grovel at the feet of Only Far Left Black Lives Matter. They’re wiping out our culture.
Why do we Americans just lie on our backs and take it when the Far Left and their pet nooze media dump their toxic “narrative” all over us? “Narrative,” by the way, doesn’t mean what the dictionary says it means. It has morphed into a euphemism for an endless stream of slimy lies spewed out by left-wing noozies.
We are looking at a serious, well-funded, and thoroughly ruthless campaign to overturn America and replace it with a “new world” bearing more than a passing resemblance to the late Soviet Union. We are looking at a push for global Stalinism—with a self-anointed scientific elite perched on tyranny’s shoulder like a parrot.
We’re still locked down, we’re being told “the masks are here to stay,” and this past weekend we had coast-to-coast riots. The Left snapped up the murder of George Floyd as if it were a gift-wrapped birthday present with their name on it. Didn’t take long to bring this country to its knees, did it? Of course, certain people did work very hard to make it happen.
What, exactly, are colleges and universities supposed to do for us? After all, they cost us hundreds of billions of dollars a year, and there are some 18 million students sitting in their classroom—who have paid handsomely, if not exorbitantly, for the privilege.
China has already launched the most ambitiously intrusive and oppressive program of social control ever seen, the “social credit system.” You have to carry your cell phone everywhere so the government can keep track of everything you say and do, everywhere you go.
Well, at least now we’ve all had a little taste of socialism. How do you like it? And remember that months before anyone heard any mention of COVID-19, assorted Democrats were campaigning to let convicted felons out of prison. And abolish the police, while we’re at it. The virus gave them an excuse to spring thousands of jailbirds.
Communism in general, and Chinese communism in particular, must be destroyed. Communism is an evil relic of the worst of the Twentieth Century, responsible for more suffering and wretchedness than any other form of government devised by fallen man—not to mention tens of millions of untimely deaths.
If you honestly believe a perfect world can be achieved by the likes of Bill Gates, the Chinese Communist Party, John Kerry, Greta Thunberg, Michael Moore, and the whole transgender movement—You’re crazy.
Harvard Magazine’s latest load of baloney is an article on “The Risks of Homeschooling”. The primary source is a Harvard law professor who sounds like she was raised by insects. The article calls for a government ban of homeschooling.
The communist government of China is, of course, the ultimate villain here. Messing around in a biowarfare lab, they let the virus out, covered up the story (with help from the World Health Organization, thank you so much) for several weeks, tried to blame it on America, and played an exceedingly dirty trick on the whole world.
If we learn nothing else from our steel cage match with the Chinese Wuhan Communist Death Virus, let us at least learn these three lessons. These are easy lessons. A ten-year-old could learn them. All right, I haven’t tested to see whether Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could learn them. But all the same we’d better learn them. The next time, presuming we come out of this bout alive, might be fatal.
And just this month it has been reported that 21 million Chinese cellphone users have dropped out of the picture. Gone missing. The immediate speculation was that the communist government, as is its invariable custom, had lied gigantically about the coronavirus death toll in their country.
And if it turns out you don't like perpetual shortages at the supermarket and huge, swollen government meddling in your life and in your business--well, folks, socialism is like that all the time. Talk to anyone who risked his life to paddle over here from Cuba.
HOST: Whew! That was really something, wasn’t it? Well, folks, that’s it for “Eternity Today” today. Tune in to “Eternity Today” tomorrow for another special guest who wishes it was… yesterday!
Winston Churchill said, “Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never in nothing, great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Meanwhile, up in Wisconsin, the Madison Metro School District teachers’ union has demanded—yes, demanded—the right of “transgender educators” to share bathrooms with the kiddies. Uh, does anybody still think teachers’ unions ought to be allowed? In Chicago the teachers’ union sends members on junkets to Venezuela so they can learn first-hand how to trash a country.
A group of parents are suing the Madison, Wisconsin, Metro School District over its “gender policy”—under which the schools are to “help” children “transition” to another sex without the knowledge or consent of their parents.
Ah! But what if they mean to sink the ship *on purpose*? Because they want to build their own, according to their own peculiar vision of what a ship should be; but before they can do that, they have to get rid of the ship that they took over. They’ve got their places reserved in the lifeboats, don’t they?
Something has moved Democrats to cast off the mask of sanity and flash us all their naked totalitarianism. Is it delusion? Desperation? Or do they think they know something that we don’t know—something that tells them they can get away with it? I take them at their word. They are crazy, and they need to be utterly defeated in November.
Want to freak yourself out? Just imagine Hillary Clinton in the White House instead of Donald Trump, and Chuck (“Who’s that invisible person sitting in my chair?”) Schumer as senate majority leader. If Far Left Crazy is this crazy when they’re out of power, think what they would do if they were in.
Last week this guy used three private jets, and a helicopter, to fly 16,000 miles before finally coming to earth at Davos for the World Economic Forum and some photo ops with teenage climate scold Greta Thunberg.
Meanwhile, CNN, an even more hysterical purveyor of left-wing rants disguised as news, plus a goodly portion of outright falsehoods, is now partnering with HBO to craft a documentary on “the rise of fake news”. Oh, please! Our nooze media are so dishonest, even with themselves, that they don’t know they’re fake.
Anointed by the Far Left Crazy as Scold O’ The World, Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg has issued a set of “demands” to the elite globalists who are getting ready to board their private jets and head to Davos for the World Economic Forum.
In London, where it’s just about impossible to lawfully own a gun for self-defense, the murder rate for 2019 was the highest it’s been for the whole decade—149 people killed. It wasn’t at its highest for the new century, though: in 2008, the body count was 154.
All of this mischief, which we still call “public education,” is the work of the Democrat Party. What a low opinion they must have of minorities! But then for liberals no one is a person in his or her own right. “You” are not you, but only a member of this or that identity group, to be treated accordingly.
Not to be outdone, Elizabeth Warren, everyone’s favorite phony Native American, back in June said we ought to pay reparations to “gays” for all those years we didn’t let them… “marry,” if that’s the word for it.
The problem with conservatism in the Western world is jive “conservatives” who aren’t conserving anything. They set up think tanks, issue “white papers” that nobody but fake “journalists” reads, get their knickers in a twist every time President Donald Trump issues a counter-punching tweet, vie with one another to see who can most ardently admire Greta Thunberg, organize luxury cruises for other jive conservatives
As might be expected, President Bolsonaro is the target of daily protests and tantrums thrown by the usual suspects—“students” who only know what their alleged “teachers” have taught them. The good news is that the president doesn’t listen to the protesters. He’s too busy working to keep his promises to the people who elected him.
Obama and Clinton donor Rodney Bullard, as head of the Chick-fil-A Foundation, turned the foundation into “just another corporate leftist charity that lavishes cash on organizations linked to local Democrats and assorted diversity causes.” Mr. Greenfield provides a partial list of them.
I’m ashamed I ever went to college. It wasn’t as bad, back then, as it is now; but it was bad enough. It took me a long time to grow out of it. The chief additions to the looniversity menu, since those days, are all conspicuously present in the latest carryings-on at Notre Dame—which is supposed to be a Catholic university, but who would ever guess it?
Somewhere along the way, despite the best and wisest efforts of our country’s founders, our public servants have become our masters. They come to Capitol Hill poor and go home rich. It’s a perpetual party up there, banquet time on Mount Olympus—all at our expense. If Donald Trump has done nothing else, he has at least proved that the Deep State, unspeakably corrupt and lawless
Wow. What’s that? Well, you have scads of followers on social media: people who look up to you, and take you for some kind of oracle. If you tell them something’s cool, they’ll think it’s cool (maybe “think” is the wrong word here; but let it stand). They watch you on TV and breathlessly await your next utterance.
And out on Long Island, a high school football coach has been suspended—for winning. It seems the government in Nassau County has a rule against your football team winning by more than 42 points, and has set up a special panel to “investigate” and punish such mischief. No job is too trivial, too small, or too inane for government to thrust itself into.
Seattle’s public schools, and the unionized communists who “teach” there, have proposed to bring in “Social Justice Math”. That’s math “infused” with leftist blather. “If Johnny has two apples but his great-great-grandfather fought for the South in the Civil War, how many apples should Johnny be *allowed* to have?”
In Britain local police have launched an “anti-hate” campaign that depicts white people as “haters” and declares, as it were, open season on them. Victims of hate [barf bag, please] are exhorted to report any and all “hateful behavior” to police—“even if it isn’t a crime”, and don’t worry about proving your complaint because “you don’t even need evidence.”
Teachers’ unions have known that for years. Study the nooze reporting, if you can find any, of any teachers’ strike. As if tenure, almost ironclad job security, pensions, and, in many school districts, salaries higher than those of the defenseless taxpayers whose labors support them, teachers’ unions sometimes go on strike for higher pay. Heated public meetings follow.
How do you pray to any god who has neither the power nor the authority to determine good or evil, right or wrong—those standards being revised day to day by Nancy Pelosi and her merry band of moral imbeciles?
God Himself put the kibosh on the first globalist enterprise, the building of the Tower of Babel, when he confounded the builders’ universal language, divided them into nations, and spread them out all over the world.
First we’ve got a sales pitch for robot priests, their theology grounded on Artificial Intelligence, a euphemism for Artificial Stupidly. To illustrate just how much thought has gone into this, check out this headline. “Robot priests more acceptable to Protestants than Catholics, says professor.”
Despite the climate cult having been caught lying and cheating, fudging figures, suppressing some data while overstating others, times without number, they refuse to leave the stage, clinging to the biggest scam in history for all they’re worth.
The publicly stated position of the Democrat Party is that Christians—meaning most of you—are the bad guys who’ve made America a racist, sexist hell-hole. They are against you, boys and girls. Most of them insist there’s no such thing as boys and girls.
In Portland, Oregon, where the mayor orders the cops to stand down whenever Antifa thugs feel like rioting, fans of the Portland Timbers soccer team are making the soccer league increasingly uneasy over their mix of politics and sports.
Facebook censored me again this week, and that little quote above was all the explanation I received—which is, of course, no explanation. I received it literally within seconds of composing my blog post and attempting to share it on Facebook.
The false doctrine of salvation by works of the flesh—that is, if you’re “good enough,” and have done a certain number of good works, God has to let you into Heaven—well, that was bad enough, even in its mildest forms.
In many school districts, “teachers” earn much higher salaries than the taxpayers who pay the school tax—to say nothing of fabulous pensions which the rest of us can only fantasize about. Oh, we get to elect the school board members; but they don’t represent us. They’re only there to carry out the state’s dictates.
They have passed a resolution—the Constitution forbids them making it a law—blaming “religious people” for the high rate of suicide among persons who practice homosexuality. If we take the Bible at all seriously, we know that such practices are sin. Therefore it’s our fault that the “gays” aren’t happy.
As hard as it may be to believe this, the Chicago Teachers’ Union recently sent a “delegation” to Venezuela to, er, “learn” from the failing socialist regime and demonstrate their “solidarity” with its dictator.
I refuse to be ashamed of the moon landing. I refuse to be ashamed of George Washington. If anything, this latest tantrum by the Far Left Crazy makes me all the prouder of these men’s achievements.
In 1935 a Russian-born communist painted a 1,600-foot-long mural on the walls of what is now a San Francisco high school. His theme was the life of George Washington; and he emphasized Washington as a slave owner and a persecutor of Native Americans.
Unless you say the right things, the nice progressive, politically correct things, there are a lot of Real Smart People who say you should shut up.
In his science-fiction/fantasy novel, “That Hideous Strength,” C.S. Lewis imagined a post-World War II Britain dominated, and that’s putting it mildly, by a scientific consortium empowered by the government. Written in 1943, the book portrays the kind of Britain you’d expect to see if the Third Reich had won the war.
Is it fair to be punished for something that you didn’t do? Like, for instance, own slaves. Or to be punished for something that someone else did, that you couldn’t possibly have prevented?
Our culture has gone “transgender”-mad. Not that there’s any such thing as “transgender.” There are only profoundly disturbed people, and liars who encourage them, who say they’re “transgender.” I have to put quotes around it because it isn’t real. Nowhere does “transgender” fly so high as in our public schools.
This is, like, so simple! All you’ve got to do is slow the clock way down and reverse that universal law of thermodynamics that says that all systems naturally and inevitably grow more random with the passage of time, until they break down. God addresses this by translating souls to a place where time is not an issue; but in this fallen world, it is. So you hire lots of Science and you cure aging! No sweat.
The new generation of sex-bots is on its way; and they’re gonna have Wi-Fi, so you won’t even have to plug ‘em in. But best of all, scientists—sorry, I mean Scientists with a capital “S”—say these new sex-bots will be “indistinguishable from human beings.”
It would be an America in which a tax rate of 70 percent and up would shatter the economy. An America of unlimited abortion, even of babies born alive. An America of “open borders,” with millions of illegal aliens swarming in unchecked, importing crime, poverty, and societal chaos.
But the real problem is that too many of us get spoon-fed everything from day care right through college, which is a kind of day care, only more expensive… and suddenly you’re done with college and the spoon mysteriously disappears.
After Alexis DeToqueville toured America in the early 19th century, he predicted that the United States would be a great, successful nation. America will be great, he said, because America is good; and the thing that made it good, he said, was the nation’s strong attachment to the Christian religion.
Some years ago, back in the 1990s, I was substitute teaching at a local high school—U.S. History, Advanced Placement class: smart kids. Their teacher had left an assignment for them to do in class, so I didn’t have much to do.
You work like a dog to earn the money for your kids to go to college, they’re still going to be saddled with a student debt that’ll take years to pay off—and what do you get?
Are you tired of trying to learn the names of politicians’ lawyers? Worn out with keeping track of how many Far Left wackos are seeking the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination? And trying to decide which one is the craziest of them all—a hopeless task?
