I’m looking at this story and I can’t quite get my head around it.

The Oxford Union, incidentally says this on its website on their “About us” page:

Unlike other student unions, the Oxford Union holds no political views. Instead, the Union is a forum for debate and the discussion of controversial issues. For example; in the 1960s, Malcolm X came to the Union and demanded black empowerment “by any means necessary”. In the 1970s, Richard Nixon in his first public speech after Watergate admitted, “I screwed up – and I paid the price. In the 1980s, Gerry Adams, still under his television ban, addressed the Union’s members. In Michaelmas 1996, O. J. Simpson made his only public speech in Britain after the controversial “not guilty” verdict in his criminal trial. The Oxford Union believes first and foremost in freedom of speech: nothing more, nothing less.

So let me get this straight, A terrorist like Gerry Adams and a fellow like OJ Simpson they are acceptable but conservative writer and author Katie Pavlich is not?  

What would The Few say? They would wonder what fought the Nazi and sacrificed so much for a bunch of cowards who wouldn’t have lasted 10 minutes against the Third Reich.

England is gone, it has committed cultural suicide.

Update: Amazing what happens when you call out bullies in public:

That explanation has all the credibility of a Brian Williams story.

Margaret Blaine: This is persecution. Why can’t you leave me alone? What did I ever do to you?
The 9th Doctor: You tried to kill me and destroy this entire planet.
Margaret Blaine: Apart from that.

Doctor Who, Boomtown 2005

It’s not often I critique EWTN but when I heard the radio replay of Vatican Insider concerning the Pope’s visit to the holy land I heard something that crossed the line, both of propriety & of reality that as a Catholic and a supporter of EWTN I felt compelled to reply to publicly

A Palestinian was on with Joan Lewis of EWTN and they commented on the stop at the security wall set up by Israel separating the Palestinian areas from the Jewish areas and the prayers by the Pope. The Palestinian also commented on the hardships of the people who lost houses in the building of the wall.  Those are legit topics and I had no problem with that.

I was more annoyed listening to the Palestinian talking of the “injustice” of the wall without a syllable was spoken as to WHY the wall was there as if the Jews of Israel built the wall because they suddenly decided such a wall might be aesthetically pleasing to the eye.  That was bad but not enough to raise my ire.  I’ve seem plenty of this stuff from the MSM and one more such segment wasn’t going to set me off.

But a line was crossed with Lewis instantly invoked Reagan’s famous “tear down this wall” speech creating an equality between the security barrier & the Berlin Wall.

That is beyond the place, it is an embarrassment to me as a loud promoter of  EWTN & as a Catholic.  As both I personally offer my sincere apologies to any Jew who might have heard this.

As Ms. Lewis saw fit to compare this security wall to the Berlin wall & thus equated a regime that one the largest sources of mass murder in the 20th century with a country set up by people who escaped from the greatest single act of targeted ethnic mass murder of the 20th century, let me ask her a question:

How many bombing attacks were made on East Berlin from West Berlin in the years prior to the wall’s existence?

How many East Berlin buses were blown up by west Berliners trying to kill them, how many East Germans died while going to nightclubs? How many East Germans children & teen were kidnapped by West Germans protesting the separation of their city?

The answer you’ll find is nearly 1 or in other words ZERO.

How DARE you compare a wall to keep terrorist out by Jews to a wall built by the Communists to keep people imprisoned in, how Dare you ignore that murder of innocent Israeli’s as if they never happened and worse of all how dare you do this on Catholic Radio bringing the faith and EWTN,  a network dedicated to truth into disrepute by doing so.

Do you not wonder why the Arab lands are Judenrein and Christians are fleeing such territories for their lives while Christians live safely in Israel and arabs vote and hold seats in the Israeli parliament.

Now I join with the prayers of the Pope that the wall eventually be gone and peace between Arabs & Jews come to pass and I applaud his historic efforts & actions to bring this about, but the reality is for that to happen, Arabs have to stop trying to kill Jews.  The launching of rockets into Israel has to stop and the kidnaping of Israeli teens has to stop.

Golda Meir put it best:

“We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”

You owe the people of Israel and Jews everywhere an on air apology and perhaps you could couple that apology with a request from the Palestinian Christian you had on to do all he can to return the three kidnapped Israeli teen now being held by his friends on the other side of that wall.

Very bad form, Ms. Lewis very bad form indeed.

Watkins: A bloke was telling me, if you’re in the army and there’s a war you have to go and fight.
Colonel: That’s true.
Watkins: Well I mean, blimey, I mean if it was a big war somebody could be hurt.

Monty Python’s Flying Circus; Owl Stretching Time 1969

Through the last nearly 6 years America there have been tremendous costs to having an unqualified man as president of the United States.

The costs have been economic as our national debt has skyrocketed and our credit rating plummeted, moral as our religious institutions have been under attack and the moral fiber of our nation uprooted, civic as laws have been selectively enforced or not enforced at all depending on the political advantage of the president and agencies of the federal government have been used to harass citizens who oppose this administration politically, social as race has been used as a wedge to the point where any opposition to this president is sold as racism, diplomatic as the US is now thought as a power in decline, nations flout us, allies mistrust or abandon us and our traditional foes expand throughout the world.

But of all the costs we have had to face the most shocking have been military.

While this president and his allies have made it their crusade to bring their “social justice” agenda to the armed forces we have seen victory turned into defeat in Iraq, unilateral withdrawal announced in Afghanistan, a successful hours long attack on the very anniversary of september 11th killing an US ambassador & navy seals while our military sat on its hands waiting for the order to come to their relief, an order that never came.

We have become such a laughing-stock that our foes act with impunity knocking they have little to fear from America other than empty rhetoric.

Throughout this time there has been one constant, the political expediency of the moment trumps any interest of the United States. Nothing has illustrated this more than the trading of five top Taliban commanders for an US Sgt who our enemies have held for years:

Some are incredulous over this move:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said that the detainees transferred from Guantanamo to Qatar, where they are to stay for at least a year, “are hardened terrorists who have the blood of Americans and countless Afghans on their hands. I am eager to learn what precise steps are being taken to ensure that these vicious and violent Taliban extremists never return to the fight against the United States and our partners or engage in any activities that can threaten the prospects for peace and security in Afghanistan.”

Beyond this individual instance, some raised the larger question of whether it is sound policy for the United States to have, in the words of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), “negotiated with terrorists.”

Rogers said the action marked a “fundamental shift in U.S. policy.”

They ought to be there is a reason why these men have been at Guantanamo for years.

There are good reasons why the Taliban has long wanted the five freed from Gitmo. All five are among the Taliban’s top commanders in U.S. custody and are still revered in jihadist circles.

Two of the five have been wanted by the UN for war crimes. And because of their prowess, Joint Task Force-Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO) deemed all five of them “high” risks to the U.S. and its allies.

For one US Sgt the Taliban are getting back:

Their army chief of staff
A senior Taliban military commander
Their deputy minister of intelligence
Their governor of the Herat province and former interior minister
and a senior Taliban figure and security official.

Can you imagine what they could have gotten for a 2nd Lt?

As of this moment a US soldier is now a commodity to be bartered and sold on the open market.  This trade has put every US soldier in the world at greater risk AND will cost lives, both civilian and military for years to come.

But what is that next to the ability to change the subject of the news cycle aware from the latest of the Barack Obama scandal?  Given his history who would expect him to be Lieutenant-Colonel Seton on the HMS Brikenhead when it will cost none of his support to play Captain Schettino instead?

I did not think any American President, not even James Buchanan was capable of this level of disgraceful incompetence when dealing with our enemies.

At least I hope this was a matter of incompetence, because the alternative is too horrible to contemplate.

C.S. Lewis The Screwtape Letters #19

Today we discovered that Rush Limbaugh has won the Children’s Choice Book Award for his best selling childrens book Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims.

Rush’s site has his acceptance speech as accepted the award here’s part of it

I love America. I wish everybody did. I hope everybody will. It’s one of the most fascinating stories of human history, this country and what it has meant to the world and what it means to citizens who live here. And it’s a delight and it’s an opportunity to try to share that story with young people so that they can grow and learn to love and appreciate the country in which they’re growing up and will someday run and lead and inherit.

So I want to thank everybody that’s made this possible.

It genuinely is a thrill. This is a tremendous event. I’m so honored by this. I’m honored to be here among all of you and all of the other nominees for this and the other categories. It’s just a wonderful evening, and I thank everybody who had anything to do with it, particularly the kids who voted in every category. It is a great project that you have going here, children’s literacy and to expand it. And the organization and the work that you’re doing is just profound. And I’m honored and humbled to be a small, little part of it.

That Rush would win is not a big surprise, he has a huge audience base with plenty of parents and grandparents who would naturally be buying this book for their kids and grandkids. That’s a ready-made voter base.

However for the media such a win is a disaster. It’s bad enough that Rush is writing children’s books, that puts him in the front lines of culture wars in the spot that he can do the most good for the right. Even worse winning such an award legitimizes him in a way that simply can not be allowed.

So how did the media decide to write about this story, by implying the fix was in:

Rush Limbaugh wins children’s book award

Rush Limbaugh wins Children’s Choice Book Award, but did kids do all the choosing?

That headline guaranteed anyone glimpsing the story would think something was up, and if you read the story it got even worse.

But executive director Robin Adelson of the Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader, nonprofit organizations that co-founded the awards seven years ago, acknowledged Thursday that adults could easily vote and vote multiple times, a problem not uncommon for Internet competitions.

Mind you there was no actual evidence that the vote was fixed or anything funny was going on, but out of the 11 paragraphs of the story 10 of them were about the possibility of the vote being fixed, how it could be done et/al. and if you look at the language used it would appear this was the story the AP reporter wished to write and that was it.

I found myself curious if this line had been taken before concerning this award so I took the liberty of going to the site getting the contact information and calling Ms. Adelson and asked her about the awards.

She said this was the seventh year of the awards. I asked he about press coverage in the past and she told me every year press releases would be sent out announcing nominations and winners. I asked if the press had contacted her about the awards in past years and she answered they had.

I then mentioned the AP story above and asked if in any past years the press had inquired about the integrity of the voting for the award. Not only did she say the press never had questioned the integrity of the award in the past but stressed that there was absolutely no reason to question the integrity of the vote this year either.

She is a very pleasant woman, we chatted a bit about the awards in general (I didn’t realize that comics & manga were included) and when we were done I thanked her for her time. I enjoyed our conversation but I felt rather insulted on her behalf.

Here is a woman who is doing God’s work, promoting literacy in kids. This year her organization and awards ceremony gets significant publicity as one of the most popular radio hosts in history is nominated and wins. So what is the story that the media reports?

This fix could be in!

Never mind that Ms. Adelson and all who work for her deserve praise for the service they do for society promoting literacy in an age dominated by game systems and smart phones.

Never mind that there is no evidence of any shenanigans in the voting.

Never mind their programs such as Children’s Book Week (CBW) and The National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature program along with the awards (which included many other categories.

The bottom line is Rush Limbaugh won this award therefore the award’s integrity must be discredited! And if such an action by extension taints the people involved in ensuring it, that’s a shame but the necessity of discrediting Rush Limbaugh in any way possible trumps it.

How disgusting, how insulting, and how typical.

Instead of trying to cast doubt I submit and suggest we of the media should be thanking Ms. Adelson and all those who work for her for doing our culture a great service that will pay dividends to society for years. I suggest going to this page and donating to her worthy cause.

Trust me I’m the Doctor

Doctor Who The Eleventh Hour 2010

Trust me, like it says on the money

Oh God 1975

A while back Instapundit had a piece in USA today about the loss of trust in government:

One of the underpinnings of successful representative government is that voters feel they can trust their representatives, and those in the bureaucracy to whom power is delegated, to follow the law. That trust in government officials’ willingness to follow the law is the foundation for a sense that the law is legitimate, so that citizens feel a duty to follow the law as well.

One of the things people don’t understand about America is why it became what it was.  To be sure there are many factors that drove immigration but one of the huge factors that continued and still continues to drive people to leave their homes and come here even when the frontier was closed was the concept of rule of law.

It didn’t matter what the police said, it didn’t matter what the local don said you had a shot and that shot didn’t depend on currying favor with the local powers that be, you could do what you want, say what you want and think what you want.  As Dinesh D’Souza put it:

America has achieved greater social equality than any other society.: True, there are large inequalities of income and wealth in America. In purely economic terms, Europe is more egalitarian. But Americans are socially more equal than any other people, and this is unaffected by economic disparities. Tocqueville noticed this egalitarianism a century and a half ago, but it is if anything more prevalent today. For all his riches, Bill Gates could not approach the typical American and say, “Here’s a $100 bill. I’ll give it to you if you kiss my feet.” Most likely the person would tell Gates to go to hell! The American view is that the rich guy may have more money, but he isn’t in any fundamental sense better than anyone else.

Additionally there was regard of truth. The concept that a man’s word was his bond meant something, and if you were lying or dishonest that meant something too, there is an interesting scene in Tip O’Neill’s autobiography about a problem with Mike Kirwan subchair of the Subcommittee on Public Works of the Appropriations Committee:

At one point during the building of the Cape Cod National Seashore, Mike cut three million dollars from our project, although he had promised me personally that he would heave it in.  I called him on the telephone:

“Mike, you knocked out three million from Cape Cod!”

“You’re damn right I did”, he said, “It’s a waste of money and we’ve got better things to do.”

“Hold on Mike.  We were having dinner at Paul Young’s and you gave me your word that you’d put that money back in.”

“Well, you’re a nice son of a bitch, taking advantage of me when I was half-stewed.  But if that’s really what I said, I’ll put it back in.”

And he did.

One might question the wisdom of that spending of public money but it was a given that once a word was given that’s the way it was.

And THAT’s why the culture wars matter.

Under the old Judeo Christian culture, honor and honesty means something (Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor) but once you decide to reject those quaint ideas of honoring fathers and mothers, not committing adultery and not bearing false witness then it becomes pretty easy for you to go from Debbie Wasserman Schultz claiming the president was not lying to true believers saying it doesn’t matter if he did:

When you reject those kind of cultural rules then it becomes a cinch to defend dishonesty when it suits your belief.

And when you toss the basic ideas of truth then unethical behavior in government becomes a simple bridge to cross

The Internal Revenue Service shared highly confidential tax information of several Tea Party groups in the IRS scandal with the Federal Election Commission, a clear violation of federal law, according to newly obtained emails.

and after that checking on Journalists private info, that’s nothing.

This type of behavior is destructive to a free state, Glenn again:

And that’s the problem. Enough breaches of trust — and I haven’t even started to hit all the scandals out there, by a long shot — and ordinary people will start to assume that the whole system is corrupt. And if that happens, people will quit following the law because they think it’s the right thing to do, and only do so to the extent they’re afraid of getting caught.

I’m actually afraid of much worse:

people are going to start concluding this:

The government of The United States is not legitimate.

Act accordingly.

That’s all he can stands, he can’t stands no more!

If enough people start thinking that in our well armed society, bad things happen. I really don’t think the left sees this danger or if they do perhaps they have decided that an armed paramilitary IRS etc is the way to solve it.

But no matter how you look at it, the root cause, the linchpin that makes all of these things possible is the abandonment of the cultural values of honor & honesty.

Until or unless those vales are advanced by our society we have absolutely no business being surprised by anything like this, I’ll give the last word to president John Adams:

Because we have no government, armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. Oaths in this country are as yet universally considered as sacred obligations. That which you have taken, and so solemnly repeated on that venerable ground, is an ample pledge of your sincerity and devotion to your country and its government.

The best and brightest come here because they believe America will give them a fair shake, if our government becomes just another 3rd world nation, why should they bother?

It’s a new week and a new month and like the proverbial closer who has just come off a save a new game has begun and last week’s and last months numbers are off the board.

Big things are happening at this site in a week, which will involve Magnificent things but until then the goal is the same, 15 tip jar hitters kicking in $20 to get me to a full $305 weekly paycheck.

It can only happen with your help, so please consider kicking into DaTipjar below.

If we can get $44 in the pot I’ll be on course for a full paycheck this week. Of course next week I’ll need $49 on Sunday. After all I’m going to have to cover Chris too.

First of all I was VERY surprised to see this online.

Second of all I think it was kind of weasely to blame MSNBC for it, if you are going to do it own it particularly since it is far more likely to be seen on Gawker than MSNBC.

Thirdly: Seriously? You have had people talking about Riots and you put out this photo? This will be used to guilt people who call for restraint and will be used as the excuse to those who wanted to riot.

Fourthly I have no proof of this but If I had to bet money and my MSNBC dig not withstanding, I think that image was released for political reasons and damn the consequences.

Finally I have this to say to all those on the left who justify the release of said image? How often did you run the images of the children of color that Dr. Gosnell killed?

This was dishonorable, pure and simple

Update: I didn’t think my “political reasons” bit would be illustrated so clearly so fast.

InterOccupy.Net has set itself up as a hub for demonstrations to react to the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman. The prosecution and defense have both rested, and the case is expected to go to the jury shortly.

The Stop Mass Incarceration Network has set up a Facebook Page for people to list any planned actions responding to the imminent verdict in the George Zimmerman Murder Trial.

Below are some planned actions. If you don’t see yours here please email us at info@interoccupy.net AND contact the Stop Mass Incarceration Network through any of the following avenues:

Breitbart had these guys so pegged

Stacy McCain on both his site and on Viral read has shared videos and photos of Kate Hunt and her younger sister. I’ve watched the video and seen the photo and I must admit the first thought though my mind had nothing to do with the Hunt sisters, their proclivities or “interesting” interpretations of copyright law

In fact my gut reaction has nothing to do with the Hunt case at all.

As I watch those girls fight and the punches swing while I watch young men with muscles in places where I don’t even have places all I can think is:  What’s wrong with those guys?

Why are these guys doing standing there with their iPhones watching that girl getting beat?  Why isn’t anyone trying to break it up?

You got some girl getting pummeled and all those guys are interested in doing are taking pictures?

Isn’t there a single person who was brought up right?

That inaction, speaks volumes  and what it says  about our culture and its fall is far worse than anything it does about the Hunt girls.

Final thought If I had a daughter every single one of those guys would be on the “Over my dead body!” list.

Never was so much owed by so many to so few

Winston Churchill Aug 20th 1940

“I regard it as a privilege to fight for all those things that make life worth living – freedom, honour and fair play”

Pilot Officer William “Bill” Millington

The news generally doesn’t anger me as easy as it used to. there are still a few red flags (Molly Norris) but being exposed to news on a regular basis and watching how far the culture has fallen has made outraging me very hard.

But this story from (via Instapundit) made me angry on a visceral level.

For 15 years she has proudly served her country as a Royal Navy engineer, risking her life in Afghanistan when she fought against the Taliban.

But far from showing Nicky Howse the respect she deserved as she flew back to her latest posting, Virgin Atlantic staff chose to humiliate her – by demanding that she remove her uniform because it was ‘offensive’.

They warned the 32-year-old helicopter technician she would not be allowed to fly unless she took off her combat fatigues and wore a sleep suit instead.

It’s a little thing, compared to say the oppression and violence against the Jews in Denmark but as the son of a World War 2 vet who has admired England from afar it was a kick in the gut.

‘They then said it was for my own safety to stop abuse to which I replied I can deal with that myself if it arises as I did in Afghanistan.

‘Honestly, I was gobsmacked and horrified. I was so distressed, particularly since the whole reason I was travelling was for a funeral.

‘To clarify, a British airline who claims to be Britain’s flag carrier won’t allow a member of Britain’s armed forces to travel on their airline in uniform.’

As a person who hasn’t served I’m very conscious of the debt I owe those who have. Looking at this situation all I could think of was the flyers who fought the Battle of Britain facing the Nazi’s alone.

They are almost all gone now men like Wing Commander Oliver Wells died last year at the age of 90 as did the oldest of the few William Walker at 99.

I can’t help but wonder how he would have reacted to this story, or if the G4S security guard and Virgin Atlantic staff would have forced him to remove his uniform if he choose to wear it on a flight?

The England they defended apparently doesn’t exist anymore. I suspect when Elizabeth II and her generation dies the last of what England once was will die with her.

Ed Cid 1961

This is just foolish:

I was just disinvited from a scheduled speech by the Utah County, Utah GOP because — after a special meeting to discuss the subject — I was deemed “too controversial” because of my support for gay rights. Er, okay.

Having an unpaid speaking gig (which I seldom do anymore) canceled is no hardship. And people are welcome to believe what they want to believe, and invite whom they want to speak — but as the GOP looks at why they’re viewed as intolerant, well, this kind of thing might be part of it. “Big tent” or teepee? Your choice.

Now if the speech had been at a Mormon or a Catholic Commencement I can see this (he is in favor of Gay Marriage & unless I’m very much mistaken Abortion) but this is a speech to a GOP group Glenn & Instapundit has been one of the smartest and best voices on the right over the last 10 years. He has treated the GOP better than it deserves Any GOP or Tea Party group that would exclude him are fools.

On a personal level I’m very Catholic, very against the narcissistic nonsense that is called “gay marriage” and about as anti-abortion as you can get. I don’t make a secret of it and I’m sure Glenn and I disagree strongly on these issues and would be happy to debate him (or any one else) on these issue publicly or privately.

Yet Glenn Reynolds been kind enough to answer my letters before I blogged, promoted my links when they are worthy, hit my tip jar when it is needed and correct my grammar when I’ve missed it and more importantly thrown me the occasional word of encouragement…and we’ve never even met each other in person.

Glenn’s not Catholic (I don’t even know if he is Christian) but he seems to be operating under the following rule:

 ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.‘ (Matt 25:40)

I’m lucky he doesn’t operate under the standard the Utah GOP does.

Update: The Utah GOP in Action!

No wonder they couldn’t get Mia Love elected

Update 2: Apparently not everyone in the Utah GOP is clueless:

Good for him.
