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.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers.
