What do you people want? Wait. Don’t answer. I already know and I’m not going to give it to you. No one can.

Earthly perfection is what you people want. The white you-people want perfect absolution; the black you-people want perfect vengeance.

Be careful what you wish for.

Denied their blanket absolution when it became obvious that Barack H. Obama wasn’t exactly Martin Luther King, Jr., some whites mumbled and even screamed the n-word–as if it just dawned on them that some black people hate them; even though the black version of Liberation Theology has existed for only a little less time than legislated federal Civil Rights and Voting Rights have–a small fraction of the lifespan of this country–and few blacks had heard of BLT until Barack Obama showed up.

Denied their vengeance, some blacks say “yeah, we knew you hated us all along,” in spite of the fact that most whites manifestly don’t hate us and many have gone against their parents, friends and communities to stand up for what’s right (in spite of the fact that those who do hate blacks have conspired to keep some of us in a more refined form of bondage—reproductive “choice” and subsidized indolence–with our own assistance). We’re not hated by all or even most whites, even in the face of how the progeny of the New Slavery continue to prey upon whites.

Along came Obama–the guy who talks post-racial and sleeps Black Power–and all the fronting ceases. All masks are dropped. And all the sh*t-fits commence. All of the players in this game wanted to be the innocent party, the wronged party. All wanted to ignore reality and history.

You people wanted the Moon and all you got was merely another flawed human to project your higher hopes and lower fantasies onto. And now you’re mad.

It’s your own fault, though; All your fault that you accepted an earthly savior.

No wonder you’ve all gone crazy. Crazier.

Discovering the fallaciousness of an idea previously thought to be true can be traumatic. Indeed, some will refuse to even consider the fault lying in the foundation of an idea–in its premises–even when the hole in it is wide and deep.

Such is the case with respect to and discrimination in private business. You’re not allowed to do it (anymore), right? Well, that means that signs like this are mere bluster and delusion.

image

If you can’t refuse to serve blacks, disabled, gays, etc., then you don’t have that reservation. It’s that simple. You don’t think so? Read Title II of the Civil Rights Act again.

So when you see things like this happen, you shouldn’t be surprised.

Two Christian ministers who own an Idaho wedding chapel were told they had to either perform same-sex weddings or face jail time and up to a $1,000 fine, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court.m

[snip]

According to the lawsuit, the wedding chapel is registered with the state as a “religious corporation” limited to performing “one-man-one-woman marriages as defined by the Holy Bible.”

But the chapel is also registered as a for-profit business – not as a church or place of worship – and city officials said that means the owners must comply with a local nondiscrimination ordinance.

That ordinance, passed last year, prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation, and it applies to housing, employment and public accommodation.

The CRA cracked the foundation of our country, further inserting government tentacles into private property. And the ingenuousness of CRA is this: it seems to guarantee the rights of those who are not white male Christians. Because of that perception, it will be impossible to fix without a whole lot of Sturm und Drang (in English, SHTF) about the rights of non-whites.

But all it really does is reserve the “right” of government to tell you how to conduct “your” business, actual rights be damned…no pun intended…or advise you of the consequences of resisting government regulation in this area. It’s a fifty-year-old fraud perpetrated on the American people. We’re seeing groups take advantage of the fraud more and more because the ideological children of the fraudsters have become emboldened of late.

I can’t imagine why that is so. (sarc)

Resistance is futile, baby

Remember the 2008 “Bitter Clinger” saga? Perhaps you don’t.

image

Back when most people were still giving Barack H. Obama the benefit of the doubt and still thinking “wouldn’t it be cool to have a black president,” he was dropping huge clues left and right as to his attitude toward the bulk of the American people and to the values which most of us hold dear. Unfortunately, many of us refused to hear the plan contempt issuing right from his lips. It was pretty plain to me; and I did tell you so. (The words in italics are mine.)

Mickey Kaus and many others are still trying to make sense of Barack Obama’s defense of the following remarks.

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant [sic] sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

(Emphasis mine.)

Says Kaus:

It lumps together things Obama wants us to think he thinks are good (religion) with things he undoubtedly thinks are bad (racism, anti-immigrant sentiment). I suppose it’s logically possible to say ‘these Pennsylvania voters are so bitter and frustrated that they cling to both good things and bad things,.” but the implication is that these are all things he thinks are unfortunate and need explaining (because, his context suggests, they prevent voters from doing the right thing and voting for … him).

Yesterday at the CNN “Compassion Forum” Obama said he wasn’t disparaging religion because he meant people “cling” to it in a good way! Would that be the same way they “cling” to “antipathy to people who aren’t like them”–the very next phrase Obama uttered? Is racism one of those “traditions that are passed on from generation to generation” that “sustains us”? Obama’s unfortunate parallelism makes it hard for him to extricate him from the charge that he was dissing rural Pennsylvanians’ excess religiosity.

If you think about it, the fact that Obama lumped the perceived religion of the white, rural Pennsylvanian with “antipathy toward those not like them”–that is, racism, bigotry and anti-immigration (sic)–makes perfect sense. The latter is bad and so is the former—if one is observing from the perspective of Black Liberation Theology.

In Obama’s mind, the religion clung to by the “average poor white Pennsylvanian” is BLT’s demonic “white” Church. The “white” Church is the tool of oppression for all—including poor whites—and should be shaken off just like other social maladies. Just like anti-immigration (sic) and racism. One will note that, in the defense of the earlier remarks, Obama still does not say anything objectively positive about the religion adhered to by the average rural white Pennsylvanian. What he actually says is that government should answer their prayers.

But what is absolutely true is that people don’t feel like they are being listened to.

And so they pray and they count on each other and they count on their families. You know this in your own lives, and what we need is a government that is actually paying attention [to their prayers!]. Government that is fighting for working people day in and day out making sure that we are trying to allow them to live out the American dream.

Never forget where this guy is coming from.

Observing the Obama-lead government action and inaction with crises which have occurred just in the last year, one can conclude that the Obama-lead government does indeed answer prayer–the prayers of America’s enemies.

I’m bitter…and clinging.

When a group of people have become guided by their bellies–their appetites–appealing to them on an intellectual, spiritual and/or altruistic basis is pointless. Not only do they become unable to discern any difference between good and evil, but they even become unable to figure out what is best for themselves.

We see this attitude made flesh–pun intended–in the latest Missouri drama involving the police.

Vonderrit Deondre Myers, a teenager who died in a police shooting, was struck by seven or eight bullets, St. Louis city Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Graham said Thursday night.

“All but one gunshot wound were to the lower extremities,” Graham said. “The one fatal wound was to the head.”

Police Chief Sam Dotson said the killing happened Wednesday evening when a suspect shot a pistol three times at the St. Louis officer, who was off-duty but wearing his uniform while moonlighting for a security company. The officer fired his pistol 17 times, police said.

The shooting sparked angry street protests, with residents pointing out similarities to the August killing of Michael Brown in nearby Ferguson.

Emphasis mine. There has also been rioting.

Many things fall under the heading of appetite. There is food, of course. (Esau famously sold his birthright to his brother Jacob–one of the earliest examples of selling oneself out against what is best for self.) And there are physical intoxicants and hallucinogens for which people will do anything to obtain.

But there are other appetites as well–tribalism, vengeance, covetousness, etc., and these are all spiritual in nature. And here’s how they operate: in the absence of the Holy Spirit, an individual–or a people–will be prone to these appetites.

Here we have black people protesting against the police because the latter responded to a shooter with identical force and, of course, the only reason they are protesting and rioting is because the shooter is black. Their appetites are more important than right and wrong. Which appetite? Their appetites for tribalism, tribal vengeance, and covetousness. Their bellies for these things have become their gods.

And many of these people won’t realize that they have food poisoning until it is too late.

Burp.

So, it’s another one of those days when I’m just winging it.

This morning was a fulfilling one. I finished listening to an audio-book copy of World War Z and began listening  to a like-formatted copy of Lone Survivor–both courtesy of the Los Angeles Public Library. (As an author myself, I normally buy books I’m very interested in, professional courtesy and all. But I’m just too broke for that right now.)

Isn’t it great that we can do such things so easily and cheaply now? It makes sweeping, mopping and other methods of bring order out of chaos so much easier–alleviates the boredom. And it saves so much time.

Thinking along the lines of informal education/entertainment through reading, it is frightening how many people scorn reading–it’s not just that they won’t do it themselves but they view those who do as some sort of deviant.

I had a Twitter conversation with a celebrity this morning, a person who cited Ebola as “karma” for America due to America’s “history” of “raping Africa.” (Don’t ask.) Seems concerned with “history,” right? Not so much after I reminded him–or informed him–of the Ottoman Empire’s and other Muslims sordid African history and present.

Still another interesting conversation with an  actual friend and my own brother about the spiritual contradictions of call oneself a Christian while subscribing to the demonstrably non-Christian concept of karma. They both seem to think that I’m being judgmental.

Suffice it to say that today is one of those days that I feel thankful to be living alone.

P.S. Don’t fear the Reaper.

President Obama, his puppets and his puppeteers intend to overwhelm several systems and create a pretext for the implementation of the Martial Law which has already been sanctioned. Because of the guns in private hands, a pretext is needed, something like domestic unrest. And the government and the mainstream media have been trying to gin up domestic unrest since the death of Trayvon Martin.

They keep getting close, but don’t quite get there and they try a given tactic twice.

The two latest tactics–domestic attacks by the government–are both in play right now.

One began a few months back with the invasion by illegal aliens, who were aided by the U.S. Government and the Mexican government.

We are just beginning to see the fruit of that attack.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that the Hamilton preschooler who died last week tested positive for the respiratory illness Enterovirus D-68, the N.J. Department of Health announced late Friday. […]

The 4-year-old’s death is the first in New Jersey involving the virus. Enterovirus D-68 has been found in at least four other people who have died in the United States, according to a report on CNN.

That particular tactic–inserting a diseased foreign population into the national one in order to overwhelm various American systems–didn’t work quite fast enough for the rogue US government, so it was tried again–this time with something scarier and more lethal.

Ebola.

And now half the country is in an uproar. The other half? Well, they are proof that technology cannot fix stupid.

Not that an uproar isn’t justified. It is. Our government is purposefully trying to kill us. The government executor–President Barack H. Obama–took down the barriers which were intended to protect us, and invited usurpers in. (Yes, Thomas Duncan is a usurper. He knew he had been exposed to Ebola before he boarded a plane in his native Liberia, and one wonders how he was able to afford the rather expensive flights from Monrovia to Dallas.)

But there are still people defending President Obama. And that really doesn’t matter because Barack H. Obama isn’t the cause of the catastrophes which have befallen our country. He is the effect.

We’ll see how successful these tactics are this time, as we beseech our Lord in prayer.

Yes, I know that I have been saying that my new novel would be ready this year. Probably not, but I have been working on it and I just want to remind readers that it exists, still.

“So, your Italian side is in effect today, I see,” said Cordelia.

“Yeah. Next week, when my black side is talking to me, Deanna and I are going to head up to the new soul food restaurant that’s by the apartment.”

“Soul food in Fullerton? That should be interesting. Make sure to bring me a plate.”

“That’s what Deanna said about this place when I said what I was doing tonight. All you two think about is food!”

“Well, that’s not all we’re thinking about,” she grinned. Continue reading “Novel Excerpt: Arlen’s Harem”

By now, everyone knows that a woman was beheaded in a Moore, NolenOklahoma workplace by a Muslim–one who was terminated from that same workplace for proselytizing there. It also appears that this Muslim–Alton Alexander Nolen aka Ja’Keem Yisrael–was a repeat felon. None of his felonies were nearly as violent as the act he committed against Colleen Hufford (murdered) and Traci Johnson (critically injured). (Ms. Johnson might have been beheaded also, were it not for Mark Vaughn, who ended this particular jihad by shooting Nolen three times. This is Oklahoma we’re talking about, after all)

It’s interesting to speculate as to the spiritual path on which Nolen traveled. He was a felon, but only a small-time one. Drug felonies, mostly, and the worst thing he did before the murder was to seriously injure an OK sate trooper while resisting arrest. That, in itself, is bad enough. But the beheading is a giant leap into criminality…or, rather, a giant descent.

Roger L. Simon asks whether our prisons have become jihad factories. It is a rhetorical question, to be sure. Muslims have been actively proselytizing and gaining prison converts for decades. I’m guessing that the most famous one was Malcolm X, who converted in the late 1950s. Nolen reportedly converted to Islam a few years back during one of his stays in prison.

The Apostle Paul said that each individual is always heading in a singular direction–either to Heaven or to Hell–and that every step that each of us takes is one step toward the final destination. I submit that Nolen took one huge step toward his when he converted to Islam–an ideology which exhorts its believers to, first, invite infidels to convert, then give them a choice between converting and being beheaded.

The murder is merely a beacon as to where Nolen’s final rest might be.

I say “might” because Nolen is still breathing. Some might say, unfortunately, but because he is still breathing, their is a chance that he can make a 180-degree spiritual turn. (Just to be clear, this is not a commentary on any earthly penalties which he will likely pay.)

Along this train of thought, I began to think about Christians who minister to prisoners. I don’t know whether Christian prison ministries have a higher or lower “success rate” than do their Islamic counterparts, but I don’t think it matters. What I do think matters: that we Christians pray for and support those who go into the earthly dens of iniquity and tell the captives of sin how to get free.

And we should also pray for the captives themselves; that they will hear and heed the voice of God the Father. And that they will do so before their Enemy–and ours–leads them to a fate worse than death.

The following text is the first part of the War Powers Resolution of 1973. The last time that I reminded readers of its existence was in 2011, when President Obama decided, without congressional authority, to pull the rug out from under Muammar Qaddafi.

PURPOSE AND POLICY

SEC. 2. (a) It is the purpose of this joint resolution to fulfill the intent of the framers of the Constitution of the United States and insure that the collective judgement of both the Congress and the President will apply to the introduction of United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicate by the circumstances, and to the continued use of such forces in hostilities or in such situations.

(b) Under article I, section 8, of the Constitution, it is specifically provided that the Congress shall have the power to make all laws necessary and proper for carrying into execution, not only its own powers but also all other powers vested by the Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof.

(c) The constitutional powers of the President as Commander-in-Chief to introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances, are exercised only pursuant to (1) a declaration of war, (2) specific statutory authorization, or (3) a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.

There are some who dispute the constitutionality of the Act, but I don’t think it matters anymore. I don’t think that President Obama ever got the approval of Congress for the incursion in Libya and I don’t think he will bother to get one for this war in Syria–which he is pursuing with a coalition of ten nations. Interesting number, that.

What I do expect: more unchecked tyranny by the person in the Oval Office.

Also, there’s this:

17 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.

3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts.

–Isaiah 17:1-3

It’s fairly certain that I’m not the only one who is a bit unnerved at watching baldilocksbiblical prophecy unfold before my eyes.
