Judge Napolitano

John Hinderaker–the comments (at least earlier this morning) were good as well:

Just some opinion here: I think Glenn Beck is wrong on this.Mal1 While I don’t want violence, I don’t think it should ever be entirely off the table. Si vis pacem para bellum, and all that. Glenn claims to follow the example of the Founding Fathers, but they went to war over a tax on their breakfast beverage, and he’s against people trying to protect their land and cattle from the very Agenda 21 deception he himself exposed. Yes, we should always seek the peaceful route– but sometimes it will not be allowed by our opponents. And sometimes, showing reluctant willingness to violence is actually the most peaceful way.

After all, on other fronts, they’ve shown what they respond to, and that’s threats of violence. So we should speak the language we have shown they will respond to.

09 April 2014 News

Here’s a good way to take advantage of our overload of lawyers. Sue the schools that abuse our children.

If there is only one thing you read today, read about these amazing, heart wrenching efforts to save children from sex slavery rings.

[While we’re on the subject, let me just note that I hate the term “Human trafficking”. Even if it’s technically correct, it seems to me to be a politically correct softening  of the term “Slavery”. That’s what this is, plain as day. We should name it with the ugliest terms we have. We should be absolutely clear what we’re talking about. This is slavery. The people who do it are slavers. Those who support it in any way are supporting the slave trade.]

LuciMy favorite actor of Lucifer calls out Obamacare over its attack on freedom of conscience. Turns out, he’s a bit of a libertarian. Who knew?

Also inappropriate: Strippers at nursing homes. Really? Ugh. Like Mrs. Scalia, I’m not comfortable with strippers in general as it is, for pretty much the reasons  she notes. How crass and insensitive do you have to be to call them into a nursing home?

This is gonna make my job even more tedious. Let’s just add more red tape. That’ll help women. . .

 

Initial Fast And Furious Roundup

Okay, it’s late, but I was trying to get this out before I went to bed tonight. Remember, this is the “program” that is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of innocent Mexicans, and Americans, including Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. In a more honest world, it would have been considered an act of war, and Holder would have been on trial at least a year ago. Myself, I’d even have tossed treason charges in as well. This thing was an abomination, they knew it, and with the help of the corrupted media, they have been covering it up as much as they could.Anyway, on with the linkage, starting with some “older” stuff for some context. . .

The Effects of Emasculation (And Slutty Wimmyn)

The following video has some harsh language. Bu~uut, it’s also 100% True and made me LOL several times. Ladies take note: The behavior exhibited by the female-types in this video is a fine lesson in How To Never Behave, compled with: How to Never Treat Other Humans.

Do Not Be Taken In By False Choices!

The news today is all about an “Accomodation” the White house is proposing in the whole Birth Control Mandate Dabacle. I hope and pray no one falls for this. Here’s how it’s being described:

One source familiar with the decision described the accommodation as “Hawaii-plus,” insisting that it’s better than the Hawaii plan – for both sides.

In Hawaii the employer is responsible for referring employees to places where they can obtain the contraception; Catholic leaders call that material cooperation with evil. But what the White House will likely announce later today is that the relationshio between the religious employer and the insurance company will not need to have any component involving contraception. The insurance company will reach out on its own to the women employees. This is better for both sides, the source says, since the religious organizations do not have to deal with medical care to which they object, and women employees will not have to be dependent upon an organization hostile to that care in order to obtain it.

This announcement would not go that far. Sources say it will involve health insurance companies helping to provide the coverage, since it’s actually cheaper for these companies to offer the coverage than to not do so, because of unwanted pregnancies and resulting complications.

Rick Moran adds:

Basically, the White House is offering a sleight of hand solution, allowing Catholic organizations to deliberately turn the other way when insurance companies offer the coverage, thus “sparing” them the burden of having to offer it themselves.

Let me make something clear. There are two ways to sin– by commission and by ommission. Commision is doing something sinful. Omission is failing to even try to prevent sin when you have the ability to stop it, or failing to do something you ought to be doing. It works like this: If you murder someone, you have sinned by commission. If you see someone being murdered, and take no action to stop it, you sin by omission. The second is equally as severe a sin as the first. Got it? [My own failings on some issues condemn me, I fear, as I have not been as zealous in my duties as I should have been.]

So, what the WH is offering here, is basically this: “Instead of forcing you to sin by commission, we’re offering the option of sinning by omission instead.”

Speaking of Contraception . . .

The Anchoress points out a surprising source for support of the Church’s teaching re: Birth Control– Business Insider, of all places!

Here’s a tasty bit:

Today’s injunctions against birth control were re-affirmed in a 1968 document by Pope Paul VI called Humanae VitaeHe warned of four results if the widespread use of contraceptives was accepted:

  1. General lowering of moral standards
  2. A rise in infidelity, and illegitimacy
  3. The reduction of women to objects used to satisfy men. 
  4. Government coercion in reproductive matters. 

Does that sound familiar? 

Because it sure sounds like what’s been happening for the past 40 years.

As is said, read the whole thing!

To be honest, I used to be a lot more laissez-faire about the issue myself. After all, if God wanted you to have a kid, it would happen– both myself and my little brother were conceived while our mother was using birth control.

13 yr old girls implanted w/ Birth Control

Without the consent of their parents. Nice. Minor surgical procedures performed in the school, no parental notice or consent. No care for potential side effects or other health problems. No concern for the fact that boys will use this as an excuse to pressure girls into sex, knowing that they “can’t get pregnant”.

This is our future, it seems.

Related to previous post: Forced Abortions and Sterilizations

AT is humming today, as usual. While skimming their headlines today, I ran across the following from their blog portion, and it also fits into what I’m piecing together:

Is Hitler’s World Our Own? by Casey Mattox

The forced sterilization of those whom society has rejected because of their race, economic standing, or mental condition rightfully brings to mind Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger.  Adolf Hitler also comes to mind, with his absolute inhumane treatment of 400,000 fellow humans via forced sterilizations under his “Law for the Prevention of Progeny with Hereditary Diseases.”

 

But that was then, and this is now. And what happened under Sanger and Hitler couldn’t happen in a society as “advanced” as ours — or could it?  (Or is it?)

 

In December 2010, the Boston Herald reported on Norfolk Probate and Family Court Judge Christina L. Harms’ order to force a 32-year-old woman, referred to by the pseudonym “Mary Moe,” to have an abortion and then to be sterilized — all against the woman’s consent.

 

Harms’ justification for her decision was Moe’s mental state.  (One of Hitler’s reasons for forcing women to be sterilized in the 1930s was “mental illness” as well.)  What’s especially horrifying about Moe’s situation, however, is that her mental problems are documented to be the direct result of an abortion she had to end an earlier pregnancy — an abortion she now regrets because she believes that through it, “she killed her baby.”

 

And even though a guardian ad litem concluded that Moe “would have refused an abortion even if mentally sound” because of her Roman Catholic faith, Harms was unmoved.

 

Rather, Harms summarily dismissed the guilt and misery Moe still feels from having her first abortion, as well as her faith, and “claimed in her ruling that Moe would choose the abortion if she were mentally competent.”  She also “directed that any medical facility that performed the abortion also sterilize Moe at the same time to avoid [sic] this painful situation from recurring.”

 

It’s like Orwell’s world is now our world, and it’s neither brave nor new.  Instead, it’s an ugly rewrite of the kind of place Sanger and Hitler both envisioned.

 

Yet as bad as this story could end, by God’s grace, State Appellate Court Associate Justice Andrew R. Grainger reversed Judge Harms’ ruling, stating that “[n]o party requested this measure … and the judge appears to have simply produced the requirement out of thin air.”

 

The Alliance Defense Fund, in its litigation on many other life-related matters, sees far too many tragic stories involving abortion.  We thank God that the angst which undoubtedly has consumed Moe since her first, and hopefully last, abortion will now be somewhat abated.  In this instance, life has triumphed over death.

 

Casey Mattox serves as legal counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund at its Washington, D.C. Regional Service Center.

 

“It was the PAX . . .”

*Sigh* Part of the reasons we have cautionary tales like Jurassic Park, or Terminator, is a s a cultural warning to 1) Not make dinosaurs from preserved DNA and 2) Not allow networks of thinking machines. SKYNET= bad, Velociraptors=bad.

Likewise, Serenity also had a warning. Trying to scientifically treat Evil will backfire bigtime. Like, Reavers bigtime.

But, as always, there’s some know-it-all scientist who thinks he can figure it out. That Evil is not a sufficient word, that it’s a malfunction in the brain that causes lack of empathy that accounts for Evil. Because empathy is simply a function of the brain. The ability to Love Your Neighbor, or even enemy, is a matter of Biology.

This guy may be a genius, but he’s also an utter fool. Goodness, Truth, and Beauty– these things are beyond the physical boundaries of science. Likewise are their opposites. If you think you find the cause of evil in a biological system, you will then try to cure it. I cannot but help suspect that any “cure” would simply enable the evil to do greater harm. Perhaps those brain malfuctions that coincide with evil what holds the evil back. Heal it, and you may unleash Hell.

This is not to say that people with malfuctioning brains should not seek to have them healed. Rather, that if the healing is simply on the physical nature, the incompleteness of it may infact lead to greater damage. It is the Soul that needs healing, then the mind, and at the last, the brain. Inside out, not outside in.

Clearly, I believe the understanding of evil as a physical-plane only issues is a big mistake. Treating it as such will only make things much worse. At best you will mask the symptoms, at worst. . . SKYNET. Velociraptors. Reavers.

Insty Agrees.

A Hunt is afoot . . .

So, I’m on the trail of something. It started with noticing some similarieties between the Koran (as understood through the Doctrine of Abrogation), the commonly accepted Hadith, and Crowley’s The Book of the Law and it’s commentary. When reading the commentaries (not at all a pleasant thing), I found some similarities also to what passes for certain strands of progressive thought.

I’ve found one connection, but it’s tenuous and. . . late, chronologically speaking. I may well be asking for some help with finding the connections. I’m almost certain there’s something here that needs finding. The connections would have happened in the beginning of the 20th Century, through the ’60’s.
