My 2018 Posts That You Might Not Have Noticed

by baldilocks

In order of ear­li­est to most recent, these are some of my favorite posts from last year. They didn’t nec­es­sar­ily get the most traf­fic, but I liked them — mostly due to crack­ing myself up.

Enjoy.

Libyan Slave Mar­kets and Jump­ing Into The Fire

We all know that Arab Mus­lims have been buy­ing and sell­ing black Africans for cen­turies, right?

Hal­frican Keeps it Real About Why 3rd World Immi­grants Come to America

A nation can­not be trans­formed through its lead­ers alone. But it can be manip­u­lated by indoc­tri­nat­ing lead­ers and plant­ing them.

The New Fun Tastes Funny

May they all remove them­selves from my lawn with prejudice

Turn­ing Around: A Suggestion

It’s about the ugli­ness of the human heart. And when that ugli­ness goes unchecked, it becomes cor­po­rate. It goes from indi­vid­ual, to fam­ily, to tribe, to nation. And If you read any type of his­tory, it’s the norm, not the exception.

These Are Some Really Strange Bedfellows

With Louis Farrakhan’s well-​known anti-​Semitism, hatred of whites, and alliance with the Women’s March and the Con­gres­sional Black Cau­cus being in the news, I am reminded of some­thing star­tling that I talked about back in 2012.

Altared State

I’ve been think­ing of the con­cept of eter­nal life and I’ve con­cluded that most peo­ple, even Chris­tians, only give lip-​service to the con­cept until some­one we love dies – espe­cially if that per­son dies young.

Mus­ings on Ridicule

When peo­ple laugh deri­sively at some­thing you say – and tell you that this is what they are doing – they do it with the assump­tion that this type of laugh­ter will wound you in some way. But what hap­pens if this has no effect on you?

Jus­tice Stevens Keeps It Real

Nice of Mr. Jus­tice Stevens to dis­pense with the mealy-​mouthed lie that many gun con­trol advo­cates use: that “we don’t want to take your guns away.” His blunt­ness — a char­ac­ter­is­tic often found in senior cit­i­zens who have retired – is very refreshing.

You Say You Want Inde­pen­dent Journalism

This week­end at my blog, I was grip­ing about hav­ing known about and hav­ing pub­li­cized the strange alliance between Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and the “Church” of Sci­en­tol­ogy only to have National Review talk about and get all the huzzahs.

Fig­ment Jesus

I can­not find an explicit or implicit indi­ca­tion of this rah-​rah Team Jesus, phan­tom Uniter-​not-​a-​Divider that peo­ple keep conjuring.

Trump Forces the IC Elite to Squeal

The recent scream­ing fit thrown by [Obama-​era CIA Direc­tor John] Bren­nan after Pres­i­dent Trump revoked his access exposed that there are two sets of rules in the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity: one for the lords and another for us serfs.

God Was Right

Left­ists tell us that absti­nence is impos­si­ble, but their “solu­tions” lead to dead ends, some­times lit­er­ally in the cases of abortion.

Make Them Push You Off the Battlefield

[T]he fact that Twit­ter sees fit to take out the high rolling per­son­al­i­ties — like my friend, Thomas Wic­tor, who was sus­pended in Sep­tem­ber, IIRC — shows that the Left is afraid.

You want your ene­mies to be afraid.

Troll-​Feeding and You

Never get angry or offended at what a troll says. Remem­ber that they don’t know you. They barely know themselves.

Begot­ten

Here’s some­thing we all are prone to doing when perus­ing a text with which we are very famil­iar: for­get­ting what cer­tain words and con­cepts mean, and, there­from, the implications.

Halfrican Keeps it Real About Why 3rd World Immigrants Come to America

A nation cannot be transformed through its leaders alone. But it can be manipulated by indoctrinating leaders and planting them.

Turning Around: A Suggestion

It’s about the ugliness of the human heart. And when that ugliness goes unchecked, it becomes corporate. It goes from individual, to family, to tribe, to nation. And If you read any type of history, it’s the norm, not the exception.

These Are Some Really Strange Bedfellows

With Louis Farrakhan’s well-known anti-Semitism, hatred of whites, and alliance with the Women’s March and the Congressional Black Caucus being in the news, I am reminded of something startling that I talked about back in 2012.

Altared State

I’ve been thinking of the concept of eternal life and I’ve concluded that most people, even Christians, only give lip-service to the concept until someone we love dies – especially if that person dies young.

Musings on Ridicule

When people laugh derisively at something you say – and tell you that this is what they are doing – they do it with the assumption that this type of laughter will wound you in some way. But what happens if this has no effect on you?

Nice of Mr. Justice Stevens to dispense with the mealy-mouthed lie that many gun control advocates use: that “we don’t want to take your guns away.” His bluntness — a characteristic often found in senior citizens who have retired – is very refreshing.

You Say You Want Independent Journalism

This weekend at my blog, I was griping about having known about and having publicized the strange alliance between Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and the “Church” of Scientology only to have National Review talk about and get all the huzzahs.

Figment Jesus

I cannot find an explicit or implicit indication of this rah-rah Team Jesus, phantom Uniter-not-a-Divider that people keep conjuring.

Trump Forces the IC Elite to Squeal

The recent screaming fit thrown by [Obama-era CIA Director John] Brennan after President Trump revoked his access exposed that there are two sets of rules in the intelligence community: one for the lords and another for us serfs.

God Was Right

Leftists tell us that abstinence is impossible, but their “solutions” lead to dead ends, sometimes literally in the cases of abortion.

Make Them Push You Off the Battlefield

[T]he fact that Twitter sees fit to take out the high rolling personalities — like my friend, Thomas Wictor, who was suspended in September, IIRC — shows that the Left is afraid.

You want your enemies to be afraid.

Troll-Feeding and You

Never get angry or offended at what a troll says. Remember that they don’t know you. They barely know themselves.

Begotten

Here’s something we all are prone to doing when perusing a text with which we are very familiar: forgetting what certain words and concepts mean, and, therefrom, the implications.
