Pestilence Rides a White Unicorn


Oh boy, the light worker really stepped in it this time with his sermon at yesterdays National Prayer Breakfast. When you've lost MSNBC...



He's getting broadsides from the right (as usual) and his defenders on the left don't have much ammo in this fight. Obama's incoherent comments on Islam and his "high horse" slander of Christianity make him sound like a sophomore philosophy major yakking it up at the coffee house. He's supposed to be the smartest President we've ever had so why does he sound so stupid?

The history of Christianity is filled with sectarian conflict and, even today, there are violent outbursts within the faith - Protestant Britain vs. Catholic Ireland or Catholic Croat vs Orthodox Serb are just two examples of many. Christian treatment of different faiths, especially in parts of Europe, has also been contentious and oppressive (cruelly so in some cases) over the past 2,000 years. But drawing an equivilancy between Christianity (a moribund force in Europe and a benign force in the USA) with the Islamic State and other terrorist organizations who "twist" their religion (whatever that means) is a rhetorical journey beyond the pale. Again, we must ask why? Doesn't he have any speechwriters?

To understand why we have to discuss the religion (of sorts) that President Obama didn't mention in his comments yesterday. A religion that metastasized 100 years ago into a scourge that decimated Europe (especially after it's towheaded stepchild emerged in Germany) and Asia. This religion did, in fact, commit atrocities every bit as ruthless and "necessary" as those committed by its cousins in ISIS. But this religion is one that views ALL other religions as "false consciousness" and an "opiate for the masses" and though it will, for nefarious purposes, occupy a branch of some established religion to gain legitimacy - see Liberation Theology - it always dispenses with the God part once its parishioners gain political control. This religion is central to Barack Obama's "faith journey" and explains his jaundiced view on Judaism, Christianity, Islam and all competing faiths.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
