  • AG Barr: “This is not decay. This is organized destruction. Secularists and their allies have

    “This is not decay,” Barr said. “This is organized destruction. Secularists and their allies have marshaled all the forces of mass communication, popular culture, the entertainment industry, and academia in an unremitting assault on religion and traditional values.” The attorney general said numerous measures of social decline are rising as religion recedes from public life, citing higher instances of drug addiction, mental illness, and suicide. Those outcomes are not random, but the fruit of a dedicated campaign against orthodox religious belief, Barr added.

    Veteran actor-comedian Eddie Murphy is the latest comic to take a stand against cancel culture, suggesting that he doesn’t want to apologize for what he says when he returns to stand-up comedy in a tour scheduled for next year. Eddie Murphy told the Associated Press in an interview published Wednesday that there is a backlash among comedians against forced apologies. “It’s almost like there was this thing where for the last couple years, people had to apologize for saying this and that. It seems like I’m seeing a couple comics going ‘You know what? Enough of this shit. I’m doing...
  • The Impossibility of Judging or Deposing a True Pope...If Francis is a true Pope…

    Accepting the Vatican II Sect as the Catholic Church has consequences. So does believing that Jorge Bergoglio is the Vicar of Christ despite being a public apostate: If he is a valid Pope, then there is no power on earth that can undo his papacy. If he is truly the successor of St. Peter, then he can resign voluntarily, but no one can take the pontificate from him... Clearly, it is high time we looked at what the Catholic Church teaches on the (im)possibility of judging and removing a valid Pope. In this post, therefore, we will examine two things:...

    It's strange to know young adults now, who have no personal recollection of the 9/11 attacks.  Even stranger still to know people who lived that day and seem to have "moved on", without interest to look back and reflect. Damning, triggering cartoon. To not remember; and to not remember those no longer with us. What is aggravating are those growing number of Americans (and non-Americans) giving in to conspiracy theories.  I see it in every comment stream on news sites that bring up 9/11.  Building 7.  Jet fuel.  Inside job.  Controlled demolitions.  28 redacted pages.  So many nutjobs living amongst...

    A new sexual fetish has emerged where couples repeatedly get pregnant then have multiple abortions. Every day we stray further from God’s light. In a Reddit post entitled ‘Question regarding abortion and breeding fetish’, one user reveals how she has “a female friend who has a really powerful fetish for breeding” and never used birth control. “She is with a male partner currently who is just like her, into breeding and they have been practising their fetish for quite a few abortions,” the post reads. Another male respondent then shared details of his own abortion fetish lifestyle. “I know this...

    Charlies Daniels I will be 83 years old in October and will be the first to admit that, for the most part, the world has totally outpaced me technologically, style-wise, musically, and certainly insofar as what is and is not socially acceptable. And while an octogenarian fiddle player from Tennessee may be miles and decades behind in recognizing and embracing the “in” thing and what is socially acceptable in this ever-changing beehive we live in, there are a few eternal truths that can never go out of style or be pushed to the side and ignored if the human...

    Melissa and Daryl McKinsey first heard about “Mexican Oxy” last year when their 19-year-old son Parker called in tears. “I need to go to rehab,” he said. Several months earlier, a friend had given Parker a baby-blue pill that was stamped on one side with the letter M. It resembled a well-known brand of oxycodone, the prescription painkiller that sparked the American opioid epidemic.
  • Trump Supporters Have ALL The Moral High Ground. Don’t Cede One Inch Of It To The Left.

    Despite the fact that roughly three out of four evangelical Christians support President Donald Trump and most of his policies, the #NeverTrump “right” and the anti-Trump left have somehow managed to fool people into thinking they have at least a solid piece of high ground when it comes to “principles,” “morality” and “values.” I purposefully put those three words in quotes because their mere utterance doesn’t mean the people who pronounce them have an iota of a clue what they really mean. Nevertheless, anti-Trump folks of all political persuations love tossing them around as a way of signaling their “virtue”...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/30/2019 | John Klar
    In an ongoing cultural controversy in Vermont, a former House member named Kiah Morris has launched a video attacking Vermonters and their culture as racist.  Ms. Morris has employed the empty trope that Vermonters who wish to preserve their traditional culture employ "political tactics [that] are historically consistent in the acceleration of increased discrimination, bias, and hate crimes against ethnic minorities and other marginalized people."  It becomes necessary to expose the absurd toxicity of such rantings. Ms. Morris's words reveal that she is not "from" Vermont.  Yet this student of "gender studies" proclaims that "[u]nless you are First Nations, you have no right to claim who...
  • 80 Per Cent Decline in Religious Funerals as Mourners Opt for Golf Courses and Zoos Over Churches

    The Daily Telegraph (UK) ^ | 8/29/19 | Gabriella Swerling
    An all-black dress code, pallbearers marching in unison, and a steady stream of tears are not often associated with golf courses, zoos and Chinese takeaways. Yet according to the most extensive ever report on UK funeral trends which, the religious funeral is dying a death. Instead of services in crematoriums, churches and cemeteries, Britons are instead opting for increasingly quirky ways to mourn their loved ones. The Co-op, the UK’s largest national funeral provider which conducts more than 100,000 every year, has today published a report revealing that since 2011 there has been a 80 per cent decline in religious...

    Is Democrat on Democrat shade is going mainstream? Probably not, but the Bill Maher/Rashida Tlaib feud is just the latest high-profile example of division within the ranks of the left, with potential ramifications involving the long-term loyalties of Jewish voters. Have Jewish liberals, who count among their rank’s notable Americans including Sarah Silverman, Bette Midler, Seth Rogan, Jon Stewart and so many other outwardly anti-Trump individuals, allowed the blind hatred they feel over the president, who has been a great ally to Israel and American Jews, to take precedence over their religious values? The issue inflaming tensions between Maher and...

    If you’re looking to see some friendly faces, you apparently shouldn’t head to The Empire State. In a survey conducted by travel website Big 7 Travel, 1.5 million people weighed in on the “friendliest states in America” — and New York ranked dead last. Though Big 7 Travel tried to soften the blow with an explainer — “locals might seem a bit gruff at first (even upstate!), but it’s a melting pot of many cultures and the neighborhoods in each borough of NYC have a community feel if you manage to stick it out for long enough” — it was...

    As the 2019-2020 school year begins this fall, millions of high schoolers and college students will be heading into an academic rife with politicization and heated classroom discussions. But, how do students truly feel about issues such as socialism, free speech, health care, and illegal immigration? Do these kids aged 13-22, known as Gen Z, feel comfortable sharing their true opinions? Do they even know the basic concepts of what they are discussing? To find out, Young America's Foundation, "the nation’s premier organization for inspiring students on high school and college campuses with conservative ideas," teamed up with Echelon Insights...

    American Greatness ^ | August 6th, 2019 | Angelo M. Codevilla
    Government sponsorship of violence against opponents or complacency in the face of incitement to violence is a powerful tool of political repression. Regimes such as Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, Nicaragua, China, and other tyrannies have used such tactics to great effect. When mobs attack anti-government demonstrators, for example, the police either disappear or stand by watching. In American cities run by Democrats and on the U.S. college and university campuses, the authorities increasingly have been standing by as radicals do the dirty work of beating up or silencing conservatives. In societies riven by mutual hate, the people who control the police...
  • After the Shootings -- Look to Culture, Not Politics

    The nation must now endure another gut-wrenching tragedy, with at least 31 having been senselessly gunned downed in Texas and Ohio over a weekend. This following a week where three were gunned down in California. My appeal is to consider these tragedies a crisis of culture and not to turn them into politics, which is already happening. I'm thinking about the words of Robert F. Kennedy when he spoke to a crowd in Indianapolis in April 1968, after hearing the news that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had been murdered. "In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the...

This week, following the Democratic debates and a poll indicating that only 25% of Democrats want a “bold, new agenda” he tweeted: “Per this poll, this is not a 'Time For A Change' election; It's a 'Can We Please Catch Our Breath And Have Something Like Normal For Five Minutes, Please, I'm Begging Now' election. But Dems, transfixed by the Twitterati, aren't listening. Too bad.” With him, as well, I share this favorite exchange of the last “debate”: INSLEE: ...I've heard you say that we need...
