Underneath the Mask Evil Sometimes Wears


Straight white male murders a bunch of mostly straight white people.

Muslim male murders a bunch of mostly gay people.

Muslim male and Muslim female murder a bunch of people of nearly every race.

White male murders a bunch of mostly white children and some of their teachers.

White male domestic abuser murders a bunch of white Christians.

Asian male murders a bunch of people of every race.

And now …

White nihilists murder a bunch of Muslims.

And, black Muslims murder a bunch of black Christians.

I could go on and on, but call this a microcosm. Almost every observer wants to put his/her own political spin on these atrocities and I could put my own “War on Christianity” spin on it if I were inclined; and it is that. But there’s an overarching view to it.

Because too many view Christianity as a political ideology, it’s necessary to refute that and give its true meaning. Christianity is a relationship with God – one in which He defines the terms of the relationship. The terms are simple: acknowledge that Jesus is the Christ – the Messiah – and claim Him for your personal savior and your liege Lord.

For those who don’t do that, they put their trust in something and/or someone else -- or in nothing else.

This is not a criticism toward non-Christians. I’m just outlining the basis of my thought process.

I’ve said before that mass murderers and serial killers are demonically-possessed and I believe this more than ever. In whatever manner it may have come about, demons cross these murderers’ spiritual egresses and made themselves at home. As often as not, of course, the demons were invited. The demons then proceed to lie to them.

“You’ll feel better if you do this.”

“God wants you to do this.”

Your race will survive if you do this.

It will be fun/funny if you do this.”

This list of lies is not exhaustive.

And here is where I part company with those who want to put an ideological or even a religious spin on every iteration of mass death.

All the “justifications” are suits of camouflage.

The religious, political and carcass-worship manifestos? Please. The demons lie to the on-looking world just like they lie to their hosts.

The devil seeks to steal and destroy, and he does not care which method his children use to make it happens as long as it happens. And his greatest weapon is terror, both the feeling and the act. The two can create a seemingly inescapable circle. A Carousel of Hell.

I know. It’s easy for me to dispassionately say that it’s not about being a Muslim or a Christian or a homosexual or a conservative or whatever when no one I love has been the victim of these murders. And, perhaps that’s why I can see it, along with the fact that I naturally look for patterns when similar actions are repeated more than twice.

And, in the cases of these types of slaughters, the pattern is so obvious that it has almost become boring to witness. Almost.

There will be more because the Devil knows his time is short.

Your mission: to refuse to be terrorized. Also, don't be taken in by the terrorists appeals to tribalism -- even if that tribalism is labelled "Jesus."

Donald Trump May Have Saved His Country

When the new abortion laws in New York state were signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) and the words of Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) became a news sensation, it was the first time in a long time that I felt true fear for this country.

So, I did what I’ve learned to do in such cases. I again apologized to God for my own sin of abortion and for other sins. As a result, I was reminded that my sins were already forgiven and that I needed to take my eyes off myself. After all, my personal repentance had no effect on the fact that other children were being murdered in that very moment.

Here's the thing. What puts us in danger of the wrath of God isn't that abortions happen. It's that we have incorporated abortion into the body of the nation. Abortion became law and, therefore became us. And when New York and Virginia happened, it was as though they (we*) were saying "screw you, God! We'll kill these babies coming out of the chute!"

We all know how it tends to go when God responds with "Okay, then."

And, that train of thought conjured the story of the prophet Jonah and his soggy trip to the city of Nineveh.

Most people remember only one thing about Jonah: that he had the unique experience of being swallowed by a whale or some other large sea creature and of living to tell the tale. But many forget why Jonah ended up in the belly of the beast.
1 Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,

2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.
-- Jonah 1:1-2

God had told Jonah to go to Nineveh to inform the city that it was about to be judged for its sins. Instead, Jonah went in the opposite direction. God, however, can be very persuasive.


So, after the fish barfed Jonah up onto the beach, he went to Nineveh and walked the streets telling the inhabitants what God planned for them.
4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.
5 So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.
6 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.
7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:
8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.
9 Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?
10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.
-- Jonah 3:4-10

Nineveh’s leader leads his subjects in repentance – a 180-degree turn in direction -- and, it occurred to me that, unless this nation’s leader did a similar thing, we were in perilous danger of being overthrown, in whatever form that would take.

So, I began to pray that the president of the United States would call on the nation to repent.

And then it happened.
There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our Nation saw in recent days. Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the Governor of Virginia where he basically stated he would execute a baby after birth.
To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.
Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God.
-- President Donald J. Trump, 2019 State of the Union Address

Stark language, as we have come to expect from this president.

Some are saying that the president’s statement didn’t go far enough, but they missed something which I did not. The phrase ‘feeling pain’ is a tiny little grenade rolled into the ideological tent of the pro-abortionists; a seed planted. Children can feel pain long before they exit the womb and I’m looking forward to the emergence of earthly proof that children feel pain from conception.

Therefore, I contend that there may be a stay of execution of judgment on us. Maybe we haven't quite turned around, much less begun to walk in the opposite direction, but those words are indeed a halt of progress toward the point of no return.

So, I thank you very much, President Trump, for halting our march toward damnation.

*When the prophet Daniel addressed God about the sins of his nation, he said that "we have sinned," even though he, the individual, had not sinned.

Goodbye Google Plus -- And Almost All Old Comments

Last week I received email from Google informing me that Google Plus was going away -- at least for low-traffic rabble like me. This wouldn't be a big deal except for one HUGE issue.

I misread the email and though I had until March 1st to fix things, but just discovered that all comments and followers that interacted with this blog via Google Plus are gone as of yesterday.

From my dashboard:


Apologies to all my commenters.

What I probably do: add Disqus. But I am considering returning to Typepad. The only reason I went away from it is that I had been using its monthly paid service for years, and when my descent into penury began in 2014, I changed to Typepad's free service. But Blogspot's free service was better, so I moved to this platform.

That you get what you pay for remains a constant in the universe.

Suggestions?

Covington Lawyers Begin the Big Payback

It's nice to see the beginning of the comeuppance for the mob against the Covington students. .
The lawyers representing Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and his family said Friday they have sent letters to media outlets, individual journalists, celebrities and Catholic organizations as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits. 
The list includes 50-plus names of organizations or individuals: from presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren to actress Alyssa Milano; individual journalists including Maggie Haberman, Ana Cabrera and David Brooks; national media outlets like the The New York Times, CNN, GQ and TMZ; and the dioceses of Covington and Lexington as well as the archdioceses of Louisville and Baltimore.
I hope that young Sandmann becomes rich, but I also hope that he doesn't lose his faith.

The worst thing about this mob against him and his fellows was to have their spiritual leaders -- the Dioceses -- join the mob and betray them without even knowing the full story. I've repeatedly pointed out that all mobs are demonic. Assuming that my assertion about mobs is correct, what can we conclude about the leaders of these dioceses?

We expect creatures like Kathy Griffin (on the list in the link above) and Alyssa Milano to stir up strife and call for blood. They are, after all, the declared enemies of white, pro-life Catholic young men.

The most painful thing for anyone, however, is to have a trusted friend stab you in the back and the dioceses' leaders were more than just friends to Sandmann, et. al.

They were the boys' spiritual fathers.

Those who the Covington students should have been able to trust were their Judases. One wonders which god they serve. One wonders who those leaders call "father."

And if those on the list are lucky this will be the most dire outcome for them.


There are worse fates.

(Thanks to Don Surber)

Don't Let Big Media Pull Your Strings


Nine years ago, I concluded that the American populace was being herded in a second civil war by the various entities that make up what I call the Organized Left: mainstream media organizations and politicians – mostly, but not exclusively, Democrats -- and, as we’ve discovered of late, online media corporations. I tend to be resistant to repeating myself, but, every day – sometimes even more often – I get confirmation of my old conclusion.

I won’t bother going back over the distortions created by Big Media in the years between 2010 and this year. Two examples from the last two weeks will suffice.

First, we had the Covington/Nathan Phillips/Black Hebrew Israelites racial troika, wherein a teenage boy was savaged by Big Media and by even his own priest without any evidence that the boy had done anything wrong.

And two days ago, Arizona Central, a dogsbody of USA Today, published an opinion piece by someone named Rashaad Thomas -- an op-ed so poorly reasoned and written that some of my acquaintances thought it was satire.
A few weeks ago, I attended a holiday party at a downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around to view the photographs on the wall. 
Then a photograph caught my attention. 
Friends said, “It’s coal miners at a pub after work.” It was a photograph of coal miners with blackened faces. I asked a Latinx and white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners at a pub after work. Then they stepped back, frowned and said it’s men in blackface. 
I asked the waitress to speak with a manager. Instead, I spoke with a white restaurant owner. I explained to him why the photograph was offensive. Evidently, someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph before. 
Yet, the photograph remained on the wall. He said he would talk to the other owners and get back to me. While leaving, I asked him had he spoke with the other owners. He had not spoken with them, but mentioned Google said it's coal miners after work. (…) 
The context of the photograph is not the issue.
That last line is how you know that the author of this piece will refuse to see any point of view other than his own. And everything after that line has nothing to do with context or reason. It’s merely the bleating of a child in an adult body who has yet to learn that his feelings are not at the pinnacle of what matters.

But back to my own point. The most important thing about this opinion piece is that USA Today chose to publish it with all of its flaws for the same reasons that I discerned in 2010.
If the Left has been successful at keeping racial grievance in the forefront of black American agenda—in indoctrinating black Americans into believing that retaining racial anger at whites is inherent in being black and essential for black survival--it has also been successful in later years of producing a certain mindset in white Americans. Actually this seems to be two mindsets, but it is really a singular one—a two-headed beast. The first is guilt-fear and the second is unproductive anger. (…) 
The phenomenon of white guilt doesn’t merely mean that many white Americans feel guilty for the actions of pre-[Civil Rights Act] America. It also means that all white Americans must pay for the sins of their fathers and pay for a system from which they are perceived to still be the beneficiaries and to still have advantages over all other Americans simply due to being white. Stemming from that premise, all whites are guilty until proven innocent. (...) 
Individual guilt can be a positive thing: a motivator to get clean and make restitution to the wronged party. (And this Christian asserts that the identity of the wronged party is always the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.) However, when group guilt is the matter at hand, there exists no actual defendant or plaintiff in reality. Under such a fantasy, the "plaintiff" can never be made whole and, obviously, the "defendant" can never be made to pay enough.
At the risk of re-posting my whole series on the topic, I’ll stop there, but, to repeat the point: anger is being ginned up between us, my fellow Americans. Anger and violence.

I saw the anger in the responses to the op-ed – totally justifiable. But, just as the op-ed writer needs to let go of his pointless anger, so do those who are angry at the insult offered to their hard-working coal-miner ancestors. Why? Because it feeds into what the elites – like those who own the USA Today Network – want for this country.

They want this country tearing itself apart in ferocious anger about things that both groups have probably forgotten. I mean, who in 2019 gives a rat’s about “blackface” except for Social Media race warriors, anyway? [UPDATE: Just in time, another blackface controversy.]

Here's the thing about the racial provocations that Big Media has repeatedly offered for our consumptions: if you leave the anger they may provoke unchecked and unexamined, at some point it will burst into rage. That's what the Organized Left is hoping for.

Don't be fooled. Examine yourself and talk with your family,and friends about any emotions produced by what we consume as news. Examine those who intentionally inflame tension between Americans of different colors. and, most importantly, trust in God. He will reveal things to you when you do that.

Don't let the "elites" who run USA Today and its foot soldiers like Rashaad Woods manipulate you.

Don't give them what they want.

Secret About Abortion

Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) signs a bill which legalizes the aborting of an unborn baby who is up to nine months in gestation.
How happy these people are to be able to take all the brakes off the abortion train! How wide are the smiles! But, the happiness etched on these different faces is there for different reasons. And I know why the black woman is smiling.

Consider one Kermit Gosnell, former abortionist and the most prolific (pardon the expression) lone serial killer in recorded history. Gosnell is a former abortionist because he is in prison. Gosnell is also black.

For certain, Gosnell believes that he was doing a great service to humanity and here's why I came to that conclusion:

There is a certain segment of the black American population -- an elite -- that looks down on the majority of blacks and believes that the world would be better off without them. Not too many non-blacks know this.

This elite has existed for a long time and what they think about the vast majority of blacks would make a Klansman blush. (One white person who does know: Anne Rice. She outlined the culture in her excellent, non-vampire novel, The Feast of All Saints.) From Gosnell's courtroom and jailhouse demeanor, I suspect that he is one of these self-styled elites.

It's said that many of his clientele were young black drug addicts and prostitutes. Someone like Gosnell would believe that he was doing the black race a favor by "culling the herd," that is, getting rid of the inferior members of his race. That he didn't even allow his victims the dignity of proper sanitary conditions and that he kept trophies of his youngest victims are just symptoms of his singular psychopathology ... and actually, the former makes sense given what I suspect about Gosnell. Puncturing uteri, over-drugging and passing along diseases through dirty instruments would -- and did -- cause many of the women to become sterile.

I’ve seen this evidence of this mindset expressed in comment sections on left-leaning news sites and blogs. And, years before the Gosnell horror came to light, I was shocked to hear it issue forth from a young black woman at an activist event. This woman said that she was pro-choice because it was cruel to allow children to be born to poor, single women and to drug-addicts. When I tried to counter that neither she nor anyone else could predict the future for a child born under such conditions, she legitimately brought up the odds. I raised the moral issue of murder as prescribed in the Bible, but, predictably, she was an atheist. I was at a loss.

On the aforementioned websites, I’ve seen black women call the pro-life movement racist. The reasoning? Allegedly, pro-lifers only want to save white babies! I was floored by the implication that saving white babies somehow means that pro-lifers are not advocating that non-white babies should be saved as well.

I’ve had a number of years to think about it and what I’ve concluded is this: people will make up all kinds of justifications, even self-contradictory ones, to allow themselves to sleep at night after making certain decisions, especially selfish decisions born (pardon the expression) of irresponsibility -- promiscuity being chief among these. Activists and politicians are merely providing the justification -- for different reasons, to be sure, but with the same outcome. Death.

Improving the race and fighting racism; that’s what these people and others like them have used to justified self-genocide.

So it is that the black woman in the photo is overjoyed that New York state will make it easier to improve the black race. I don’t know. Maybe she thinks black self-extermination is an improvement.

Many of my readers know that I had an abortion when I was a teenager and a miscarriage 13 years later when I was married. All of my children are in Heaven. When I became a Christian, murdering my child was the first thing for which I asked God to forgive me. But, before that, it was something I thought had put behind me and I even justified it to a certain extent.

God got ahold of me and stripped that self-deception away. (By the way, He’s still doing that about other self-righteousness I used to think was okay. That’s what He does for those He loves.)

Self-deception is a curse.

So now you know what the deal is with black democrat politicians and activists like that woman. And you know why black women are murdering their children in droves, at least in New York City. And it’s all happiness, joy and smiles  …

For now.

Why They Blamed the Kid At First

The outrage engendered by the photo of a MAGA-hat-wearing white boy – Nicholas Sandmann -- who smiles while an old Native American man -- Nathan Phillips -- beats a drum in his face reminded me of something that I’ve been observing for a while.

My observation: a significant portion of Americans believes that whites are superior to all non-whites.

Thus did Sandmann's white teenaged male MAGA smile trigger irrational revulsion in the chattering class. Much of that revulsion was directed inward.

I bet this is what they saw.

Case in point for the latter: the initial outrage transcended political boundaries; a number of white male conservatives at the National Review condemned young Sandmann at the onset, showing that -- like a significant portion of the Left -- they, too, believe in the natural superiority and in the blood guiltiness of white men.

And here is further evidence for my overarching opinion: the whole scenario was provoked by the Black Hebrew Israelites (who?), who began this sordid episode of 2019 life by hurling gay and racial epithets at Sandmann and his boy’s school classmates, who are mostly white. And even BHI – ostensibly a black supremacism group – displays its underlying fear of black inferiority in relation to white males by taunting one of the black students among the school boys. They warned him that his classmates would “harvest his organs.”

But there has been little mainstream outrage at BHI for its non-PC behavior. In fairness, I doubt that the BHI members would give a rip if there had been. Mainstream outrage only works on those who care about their mainstream image.

(Side note: there are many groups who want all the benefits of being Jewish/Hebrew/Israelite but want none of the drawbacks.)

To review the players, we have:
  • Black Hebrew Israelite men shouting insults at white boys – and at one black boy among them
  • An American Indian man beating a drum in a white boy’s face, and
  • The white boy smiling and saying nothing in response
  • Mainstream media holding the boys responsible for the whole situation and ascribing no responsibility to black and Native American men.
The only solution to this problem is for you white dudes to abdicate all positions of religious, political, journalistic, familial, etc. power or die. Or both. I suppose that you all could start with the abdication part and let the rest of us run the world.

The end would come a lot quicker, which would be a plus, in my view.

Seriously, we of the darker persuasion are not expected to subscribe to the norms of civilized behavior, because, in the view of the Left and some of the Right, we are genetically incapable of it.  To all too many -- including many, many non-whites -- we are capable only of being victims of whites, even of white children. And non-white men have no moral agency. So they get a pass for behaving like children themselves.

But those who believe this will never admit it -- many not even to themselves.
