Why should doctors be any better than lawyers, or professors, or any other group that has disgraced itself in American life? There's no reason. Doctors have the same degree of wisdom as gender studies professors. The issue isn't medical knowledge. The issue is wisdom and courage. There are plenty of doctors who have it. Read about The Great Barrington Declaration.

...

Your doctor knows nothing about COVID, nothing. All they know is how the virus works, that's all they know. It is an amazing thing that listening to this show, of a non-doctor, you have learned more about COVID — more about masks — than your doctor probably knows. Not only is it not a boast, it is totally meant to be an attack on the medical profession. I should not know 10 times more than your doctor about all of the issues with therapeutics. And if your doctor thinks ivermectin is dangerous, change your doctor. And I mean it. Might be a nice guy — go golfing with him, or her — but check out another doctor.

ATHEISTS BRAINS DON'T WORK WITHOUT GOD

[For "National Ask-An-Atheist Day 2011]

Theists can think.

Nobody else can.

Respect for God is where wisdom begins.

Thought without wisdom is impossible.

So that’s it.

You Atheists will object.

You think you think.

I don’t believe it.

Why should I?

You offer no empirical evidence.

No proof your thoughts exists.

You say, “Show me your God!”

I say, “Show me your thought!”

Brain scans don’t cut it.

A scan just proves brain activity.

Doesn’t prove thinking.

If activity signaled origination then

…music comes from your eardrum.

But I’m already too deep.

Only the theists are still with me.

You Non-Theists are readying another volley of vitriolic vapidity:

“Do you believe in Santa Claus too?  Santa and God are the same thing!”

Oooo!  Ouch!

“There’s a multiverse!  The multiverse makes life possible!”

Zing!

“People don’t need God to be moral.”

Ka-Pow!

Comprehending any offered response to these statements requires thought.

That’s where you run into problems.

In place of genuine thought…

…you have skepticism.

You are skeptical of everything

…except your own skepticism.

Sorry.

I went too far again.

If you want to follow what I’m saying…

Wisdom is just a prayer away.

Ask God to reveal Himself and He will.

But you’re not gonna do that.

Because you think that’s stupid.

EVIDENCE FOR GOD 2: MY JELLO IS ALIVE

This is the 2nd part of my fantastic new series where I present evidence for the existence of God.

In part one, I explained what I mean when I say “God”.

In order to understand the first evidence, you need to understand Jello.

jelloimage

Specifically, you must understand that Jello is not alive.

Though it comes in many shapes and flavors…

…none of them are living.

Suppose a spoonful of Jello that you scooped onto a plate suddenly came to life.

It slithered across the table onto the floor and headed out the front door.

Be honest…that would surprise you, wouldn’t it?

Suppose a microscopic piece of Jello suddenly came to life and slithered around.

Is that less surprising?

What if a microscopic piece of Jello came alive a million years ago?

It’s pretty miraculous no matter when it happened.

That’s essentially what happened on Earth at some point in the unrecorded past.

It wasn’t exactly Jello that came to life but it was something just as dead.

And that’s not something that ever happens.

Non-living stuff doesn’t come to life.

Living things only come from other living things.

Always.

Earth started out as dead as a teaspoon of Jello.

And then there were living cells.

Poof!

That’s evidence

Why The Left Hates America

If Blacks, Browns, women and homosexuals had founded The United States of America in 1776, you couldn’t shut them up about it. They’d be bragging 24/7 about how they founded the best, freest, most productive and most powerful country on earth.

But that’s not what happened, of course.

The emotional, child-like Left hates America because it was created and run by conservative White males and only by them, not by anyone else [1]. That’s a huge sin to the Left, and the leftists cannot forgive White males for that “crime.” How dare they nearly achieve perfection all by themselves, without including Blacks, Browns, queers, women, midgets and vegetarians! How dare they! That wasn’t inclusive! That wasn’t democratic!

America: Fucking Things Up Since 1941

It doesn’t matter what it is, America is pre-programmed to screw it up: Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Covid-19 “pandemic.”

America knew that strangling Japan (i.e., preventing her from getting oil) would lead us into war in 1941. It did. (In fact, president Roosevelt was counting on it, as a backdoor to war with Germany) [1].

America also knew, early on, that the war in Afghanistan was a lost cause. But we stayed there anyway. We were determined to bring democracy to sand niggers who didn’t want democracy.

Not only did we waste billions (maybe trillions) of tax dollars on Afghanistan, but now, we are gonna bring 100,000 Afghan “refugees” to America so that they can rape our women. Yaaaay! Diversity!

Of course, you can thank Jews for all of this. Because anything that happens in the Middle East (vis-a-vis America) is ultimately about Israel.
[Article].

.

[1] as early as October 1940, Roosevelt had decided that America would wage war against Japan, and he told Navy Admiral James O. Richardson, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet, just that. So much for the Pearl Harbor attack being a “surprise”! There’s no bigger asshole in American history than Roosevelt, who started WWII by ordering Britain to make Poland “a line in the sand that Hitler couldn’t cross.” That order actually came from the Jewish powerbroker Bernard Baruch, who was Roosevelt’s handler and advisor. Today, Roosevelt is remembered fondly by history teachers and “Greatest Generation” stooges as the man who “protected America” and “guided us through the depression.” Nope!

CNN Interviews Trump Supporter Who Threatens Taliban-Style Takeover to Reinstate Him: ‘There’s Millions of Guns Here’

CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan spoke to a Donald Trump supporter who warned of a Taliban-like takeover in America if the former president isn’t restored to office.

...

Stephen Palmer, one of the Trump supporters O’Sullivan spoke with at the Iowa State Fair in Des Monies, said “I don’t think there’s gonna be a 2024 election until we get the 2020 result.”

“There’s no way at this point to overturn the 2020 election, right?” O’Sullivan asked.

“There’s always a way,” Palmer replied — before referencing the Arizona audit.

Then, Palmer darkly insinuated that America could go the same way as Afghanistan if that’s what it takes to return Trump to power.

There’s millions of guns here. You know, it took 11 days for them to take over Afghanistan. Wonder how many days — just asking for a friend — how many days it would take the patriots to take over this country. Think about it.

“You don’t want that to happen,” O’Sullivan responded.

“I don’t want it to happen,” Palmer said, “but if our country, our government, our Congress and Biden don’t get their heads out of their butt, it’s going to happen. I assure you. It’s coming.”

Making a two-year-old wear a mask will go down as comparable to the Salem Witch Trials. But the people who did the Salem Witch Trials recanted and apologized very shortly thereafter. The people who want your two-year-old to wear a mask don't apologize; they...double down. So...we are watching the ascent of the irrational. Watching Americans obey this, without question, has been one of the most depressing experiences of my life.

Marjorie Taylor Greene encouraged Alabama residents to greet vaccination promoters with guns

Aug 7, 2021

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene encouraged Alabama residents to use their guns to scare off officials if they came to their homes to ask about their vaccine status.

The Georgia politician made the comments while speaking to a crowd in Dothan, Alabama, on July 23.
"You lucky people here in Alabama might get a knock on your door because I hear Alabama might be one of the most unvaccinated states in the nation," she said.

She warned them that Joe Biden would send his "police state friends" to their homes to ask about their vaccine status.

"He's going to be sending one of his police-state friends to your front door, to knock on the door, take down your name, your address, your family members' names, your phone numbers, your cellphone numbers, probably ask for your social security number, and whether you've taken the vaccine or not."

"What they don't know is that in the South, we love our Second Amendment rights and we're not real big on strangers showing up on our front door, are we?" she said, to raucous cheers from the crowd.

"They might not like the welcome they get."

...

Alabama has one of the lowest vaccination rates in the country and is one of just two states with less than 35% of the population fully vaccinated.

Alabama is the fifth worst state in terms of vaccination rate in the country ...

...

Greene has previously come under fire for making controversial comments about COVID-19, including comparing vaccine passports and mask mandates to the Holocaust.

Greene then criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci, who she said was a president that "no one elected."

She accused Dr. Fauci of orchestrating COVID-19 by funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, a false claim from the right that says he created the coronavirus.

"Dr. Tony Fauci funded, with your tax dollars, he funded it in the Wuhan lab, didn't he? He funded COVID-19," she said.

Laura Ingraham And Jon Taffer Suggest Treating Workers Like Hungry Dogs

Fox News host Laura Ingraham and “Bar Rescue” host Jon Taffer aren’t happy that millions of Americans are using pandemic unemployment checks to avoid taking low-paying jobs out of desperation.

On Thursday night, the two criticized people who are using those checks as leverage to get better jobs and better salaries.
In the process of griping about the possibility of ― yikes! ― paying living wages to workers whose real wages have been stagnant for decades, Ingraham cruelly suggested, “What if we just cut off the unemployment?” before noting, “Hunger is a pretty powerful thing.”

Taffer was down with cutting off the cash flow to his fellow citizens, even though he personally had no problem accepting two PPP loans totaling $60,858 from the Small Business Association, according to FederalPay.org.

He supported Ingraham’s suggestion by comparing American workers to military dogs.

“They only feed a military dog at night, because a hungry dog is an obedient dog. Well, if we are not causing people to be hungry to work...” he trailed off.

Panic, panic, everybody panic. We have to panic. It's very important that we panic. The headlines betray nothing but panic. Panic, panic everywhere.

...

I'm seeing sheer panic out there because, wow, Lindsey Graham announced that he had a breakthrough case of COVID and now he's going to self-quarantine for ten days. So, first of all, I'm not even sure that it's worth quarantining if you have COVID at this point. Like, it's so widespread that I'm not even sure, like on a public health level, whether quarantining is even going to slow the spread in any significant -- like, I get it. You're supposed to quarantine if you have COVID. I do, I understand, I understand why they're telling you to do this, because there are so many unvaccinated people out there. But if Lindsey Graham is dealing with a lot of vaccinated people every day, then really this should not be, like, of massive concern. In the same way that many people go to the office when they have a cold, many people go to the office when they are feeling mildly ill, if COVID is now degraded to the level of a minor illness, I don't understand why everybody on earth is supposed to be freaking out that Lindsey Graham got a breakthrough case of COVID that has resulted in the sniffles.

...

Okay, why is that a public health story? I don't understand. Being diagnosed with, basically, very very mild illness is not a public health emergency. So when you see people freaking out over case rates, it makes no sense. It is just alarmism of the highest order.

Homeless people should be rounded up and executed.

Homeless people do not contribute to society. They absorb government tax dollars (paid for by the working class like you and me), they aggressively haggle you for money, go to the bathroom on public streets and devalue property.

I do not care about their life story, I do not care about how they came to be homeless, and I do not care about if mental illness has to do with it. Despite numerous and hard efforts produced by governments, charities, churches, etc., they still end up on the streets addicted to drugs or begging. There are almost unlimited resources for homeless people and they still end up being leaches of society.

The only reason opponents of this belief have as to why we should not execute homeless people is that "they're people, too"...well not all people are equal. One who works and contributes to society is beneficial to mankind, and ones who push around grocery carts by the freeway are not.

I say give homeless people six months to shape up, and if they don't, then withdraw their government money. If after six more months they still cannot get back on their feet, then they are put into the back of a large van by the government of your country and taken to a killing field where they are executed.

Charitable giving should be made illegal

By charitable giving I mean the donation of money, gifts or resources that would allow the continued survival and flourishing of an entity (human, animal, organization etc.) that wouldn’t otherwise survive in an unfettered free market.

The invisible hand of the free market is the only just way to distribute resources, and charity disrupts this natural process and creates inefficiency. It either creates dependency or it allows unfit entities to exist and this lowers the overall utility of a society and this ultimately leads to stagnation and socialistic values which in turn may lead to a diminishment in entrepreneurship and human excellence which ultimately perpetuates an ugliness, a poverty of spirit which drains the very joy out of life.

Flu Cases in the U.S.A, 2014-2021, or, Fooling the Rubes

Flu cases during the flu seasons (i.e., October 1 to April 1).

Source: CDC

Years:

2014-2015_______30,000,000 cases

2015-2016_______24,000,000

2016-2017_______29,000,000

2017-2018_______45,000,000

2018-2019_______36,000,000

2019-2020_______38,000,000

2020-2021_______2,124

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to conclude that most “Covid-19” cases were actually flu cases. That’s because the, ahem, “gold-standard” PCR test could not distinguish between Covid and flu. Even if you factor in “social distancing to avoid Covid” the 2020-2021 flu case number is shockingly tiny.

Bad news for the vaxxed: The official vaccine narrative IMPLODING: CDC warns that virus is evading the vaccines; masks and quarantines now required for all

(Natural News) For months, public health authorities told citizens that “life would not go back to normal” unless 90 percent of the population was vaccinated with experimental spike protein mRNA programs. ...

But after all the terror, bribery, segregation, intimidation, and abuse ...

NBC and CNN flip the script, says vaccinated are contracting COVID and facilitating the spread

...

CDC director warns that virus is evading the vaccines

CDC Director Walensky ... implied that more doses of vaccine will be needed in order to keep people “fully vaccinated.” She warned about the failure of the vaccine program: “The largest concern that I think we in public health and science are worried about, is that virus and the potential mutations away, we are from a very transmissible virus that has the potential to evade our vaccine in terms of how it protects us from severe disease and death.”

... This waning immunity is already occurring in some of the most vaccinated countries, like Israel and Singapore. ...

And now the Center for Disease Control wants to push more mask mandates for the vaccinated, as the vaccinated become the “super spreaders” they once mocked. Not only are the vaccinated shedding spike protein bioweapons from their own cells, but they have also weakened their bodies with further inflammation from those spike proteins, making them more susceptible to coronavirus variants. Even worse, the vaccinated have become the vector for which coronaviruses mutate and spread. Meanwhile, the vilified and socially ostracized (the unvaccinated) enjoy natural immunity or may soon have natural immunity that is proven to be 40 times more durable at preventing hospitalizations in Israel. What’s more, science shows natural immunity provides persisting antibody levels, including robust memory B and T cell immunity.

Jared Taylor Says: European Jews Are Western and Our Allies

This is really appalling: Taylor surely knows (i.e., he has been told before) that European Jews (aka Polish Jews) are not White or Western (“Western” means White European, e.g., German, Swedish, English). The Jews are a separate race and not White. Having “white” skin doesn’t make you White. In fact, there are Blacks who have really light skin but they are not White. If Taylor thinks that “Jew-inclusion” will keep him off of the Jewish-compiled “enemies lists” he’s so very wrong: the Jews think that anyone to the right of George W. Bush is a closet Nazi.

Jews have an unusual worldview ... Firstly, they believe that they are superior to all other people in the world, i.e., that they are “God’s Chosen People” ... Secondly, the Jews believe that it’s okay for them to genocide anyone who isn’t a Jew. ... in fact, the Christian Bible, aka the Old Testament ... [is] full of passages where Jews brag about genociding various “lesser” peoples ... according to the Jews, God sanctioned the genociding of those “lesser” people. ... This is the Jewish mindset: bold arrogance and stunning cruelty. You can see it in Palestine/Gaza even today, where the Jews shoot children, massacre zoo animals and bomb hospitals, and then lie about it.

Indeed, the Jews are racist against all humanity and are “at war” with everyone else on the planet. But they especially hate Whites, because they fear Whites more than any other people ...

You might ask: “why would the Jews want to genocide the West, since half of all Jews today live in the West?” The plain answer is: because they can’t not genocide the West. Genocide and hyper-hate are so natural to the Jews, so inborn, that they’re actually coded in their genes. Like an alcoholic who is drinking himself to death and knows it and yet still keeps drinking, Jews can’t help their natural inclination towards genociding the people that they fear the most, even if such genociding will eventually kill them along with the White people. Put another way: “Come what may, fish gotta swim, frogs gotta hop and Jews gotta genocide their greatest enemy”; such genocidal feelings among Jews are mostly subconscious (i.e., the Jews don’t realize that they’re wanting/committing genocide; they’re in deep denial, although realistically, some Jews probably do realize it).

Bottom line: since the West is the most powerful and most productive region on Earth, the genociding of Western civilization by the Jews is the foremost problem in the world, eclipsing every other problem by far. ...

The 64,000 Dollar Question About Covid

Get out your thinking cap. Put it on. Tightly.

Ready? Okay. Here’s a big question about the Covid-19 case and death numbers: if the Covid PCR test (you know, the “gold-standard Covid test” until a week ago) could not distinguish between Covid and the flu since early 2020, then how does the government know which people died from the flu and which people died from Covid? How does the government know that, since early 2020, “34.5 million people have caught Covid” and “611,000 people have died from Covid”? The government bases those statistics on…what?? That PCR test was the “gold-standard Covid test” as one government website stated.

Now you know why so many people call Covid a “scamdemic.” Nothing adds up. How do you know that your Uncle Frank died from Covid last October? You don’t. How will we know that a new “rapid response Covid test” will be any better than the PCR test? We won’t. Is Covid just an Asian flu? How would we know?

“Keep in mind just a few days ago the Federal CDC announced all U.S. healthcare providers must switch to new rapid response tests for COVID-19. The reasoning? The current PCR test does not differentiate between COVID and the flu. The new tests will distinguish between the flu virus and the COVID virus.”

FUCK THE POOR

Why the hell do these people get the most sympathy when they have almost zero impact on people's lives.

If a janitor dies, nobody notices because he gets replaced but if a CEO dies, people panick and stockholders start scrambling. So why do people always highlight the lives of irrelevant people who can't do jackshit??? I'm tired of people always talking about the poor, and how we should all help one another; HAS THE POOR EVER HELP ME?? Have they ever had ANY SYMPATHY FOR ME??? Fuck no, so why should't I reciprocate their indifference???

PEOPLE ARE SELFISH. Both rich and poor. We only care about what affects us; the only moment we start caring for others is when we got jackshit to do. That's why these billionaires are often the most generous, they got so much shit that they don't care where it goes anymore; and that's why they could now afford caring about the poor. CHARITY IS A RICH MAN'S LUXURY.

Here in the West, like here in America, we are beginning to slowly understand that Democracy + Diversity + Equality – Honour – Debt – Hierarchy – Direction = Societal Collapse. Democracy here meaning: when the emotively whimsical Mass has the power to make decisions. People, especially from the third world, who come to America, no longer have any sense of Honour, Loyalty, or Duty. They come here for the free stuff, to out breed White people, and to ethnically struggle for dominance.

The Homeless Scam

Circa 1950, “the “homeless” were called “bums” or sometimes “hobos.” The police used to arrest them ...

Then suddenly about 1980 the liberal media began to call the bums “homeless people” (because ... if you want to normalize something unpleasant ... you must first rename the thing! As another example: calling the unhappy homosexuals “gay”). The media didn’t mention the fact that most of “the homeless” were mentally ill, or running from the law, or simply enjoyed the vagabond, panhandling, hippie lifestyle.

... “the homeless” have become saints, like George Floyd and Holocaust survivors. It’s not their fault that they’re homeless. Noooo. They’re simply innocent victims of White male capitalism and greed! ... Billions of tax dollars are spent on “the homeless.”

Guess what: if you give the “professionally homeless” more money and more free stuff, then more of them will arrive in your city! ...

Today, California is awash with thousands of “professionally homeless” who harass and assault people on the beaches and in the parks. (A bum will approach a citizen and demand money — after all, he’s “entitled” to it! If the citizen refuses the demand, he could very well be assaulted so he’ll usually cough up the money. Bums are also notorious for carrying communicable diseases, e.g., hepatitis, tuberculosis, strep and diphtheria).

... Liberals will say “there are 178 million homeless in America!” when in reality there are maybe 30,000, with most of them being in California. Why not Nebraska? Too cold, eh? Not liberal enough, eh? Not enough big cities, eh?

California is run by liberals, and liberals are idiots. To be precise: liberals lack common sense. They were born without “the common sense gene.” That’s why they should not be allowed to hold public office or make important policy decisions. …

White Privilege? No. Jewish Privilege

Go to your refrigerator and look inside. Examine the ketchup, mustard and pickle containers. You will see that they all have a little kosher (meaning “fit”) symbol on them, usually on the front label — a “U” or a “K” for example. That little symbol means that the food is “okay for Jews to eat.” In other words, the food was prepared in a special way and can “safely” be eaten by religious Jews without violating Jewish dietary rules [1].

Most packaged food in America today is marked with the kosher symbol. Even non-food items are often marked with the kosher symbol, e.g., aluminum foil, plastic wrap.

Given the fact that Jews make up only 2% of the U.S. population, that speaks loudly to how much power and privilege Jews have in America. (You’d think that Jews were extra-special or something! Actually, they do: Jews consider themselves to be “God’s chosen people” i.e., God’s favorite people).

(Consider this: if you went to Israel, and asked a dozen Israeli food producers to mark all of their packaged food with little Christian crosses on the labels, you’d probably get your ass beaten. White gentiles are such chumps. Jews have been waging war on White Western culture since ancient times, yet we put our enemy’s stamp on our food! Heaven help us!).

Pastor Greg Locke Vows to Remove Anyone Wearing Mask in Church, Blasts 'Godless Democrats'

7/25/21 AT 5:33 PM EDT

...

The Tennessee-based Baptist pastor [Greg Locke] offered his latest tirade against "godless Democrats" and the Biden administration, claiming the federal government only wants "compliance," and not improved public health ...

...

"Don't believe this Delta variant nonsense. Stop it! Stop it! If they go through round two and you start showing up with all these masks and nonsense, I will ask you to leave," Locke told the cheering audience. "I will ask you to leave. I am not playing these Democrat games up in this church."

"I don't need to be a jerk for Jesus, but...I'm not going to kowtow down to a wicked godless culture," Locke continued, sparking raucous applause. "Here's what the left has told us: 'If you comply, you compromise, if you comply, eventually you'll get in our good graces.' But no, you'll never be able to comply enough!"

...

The conservative pastor's accusations against the Biden administration and Democratic lawmakers have included his claims that ... Kamala Harris is a "jezebel demon" and that the administration is overseeing "child-trafficking tunnels" beneath Washington, D.C.

"I ain't playing their games, shut the nation down for a second time...it didn't hurt the economy bad enough. You know what happens when they shut down private businesses? They open government businesses. The government isn't hurting one bit," Locke said ...

"Yes, I'm narrow-minded...doesn't matter to me what 'The View' says, what Oprah [Winfrey] says, what Whoopi [Goldberg] says, what [Pastor] Joel Osteen says. If you want to social distance, go to First Baptist Church but don't come to this one! I'm done with it, I said I'm done with it," Locke said ...

"They're talking about shutting down this nation for round two, talking about masking everybody back up, shutting down churches, hey, my hind leg if they think they're going to shut this church down," he added.

Fox News hosts discuss how to ban 'childless' liberals from voting

...

The idea was recently floated by Ohio Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance.

"Let's give votes to all children in this country, but let's give control over those votes to the parents of the children," Vance told a conference ...

The hosts of Fox & Friends discussed the merits of the idea that the "childless left" should not be able to vote.

"I think it's an interesting idea," host Will Cain said. "... He's saying childless leaders are making decisions that are short-term in mind, not focused on the long-term future health of this country because they don't have a stake in the game. Parents have a stake in the game, they have children so give parents a bigger say."

...

"I don't know about that solution … ," Campos-Duffy said. "But I will say that I agree with the premise of it, that it is absolutely true that people like [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez], Pete Buttigieg -- you can name the left-wing politicians, people who think that we should legalize marijuana because they don't have kids and they don't really have a stake in what that looks like."

...

"That is looking at it through the lens of the actual solution, which is the family unit," co-host Pete Hegseth agreed. "So many ills that we have in our society stem from that breakdown. ... [It's] not a feasible policy but what it is in principle is a reflection of the fact that -- what Ronald Reagan said, freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction."

"And if you're Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- our favorite comrade -- and you've said the world is going to end in 12 years, what do you care? ... It's this idea of absolute pessimism that the world's going to end and as a result, we're the problem and don't have kids."

According to Hegseth, a large family is "a reflection of optimism."

"Do you want to pass AOC's America off to America or J.D. Vance's?" Campos-Duffy asked. "American Marxists want to tear down the American family."

The 30-something Bela’s intergalactic romance reportedly began after she joked online one day that she wanted an alien to abduct her because she was “bored of the pandemic.”

... “On May 31, a voice in my dream said, ‘Wait in the usual spot.’

“Although I had never heard the voice before, I knew what he meant,” said the intergalactic gal-pal, who decided to wait by her window the next evening.

After [Bela] drifted off to sleep, “a flying saucer” appeared outside her window at around 12:15 a.m., whereupon a “bright green beam” transported her up to the UFO, she alleged.

... she encountered five aliens, which had “very tall and slender” human-esque forms.

“I couldn’t see them clearly and [they] telepathically said I’m not ready to see them in their true form ... But from what I could see, they had a slight green hue and big black eyes with human features, such as eyebrows.”

...

“There was one who connected with me and expressed his feelings ... I didn’t get his name but I felt the exact same.”

... “It felt like being in love times 100.”

...

“People have said I’m wrong to think about having sex with an alien ... Some have dismissed what I am saying whilst most people are angry about the dating part.”

...

... She feels aliens provide that “extra quality of care” not offered by mortal men, who, with some exceptions, “tell lies and have double standards.

“I think aliens are vilified but they aren’t bad,” Bela added.

... she plans to be one of the first couples to “normalize” interplanetary hookups, which she sees as the next phase of “human development.”

[Transcript of a video clip]

So, do you know what God equates as sin in the Bible? He equates poop, filth in the Bible.

No, this is not a brownie. No, this is not [a] Snickers bar. I own two Bullmastiffs in my life. This is Great Dane. Do you know how God sees — now this is important — Psalm 141:2: “May my prayer be set before you” — like what? — “like incense.” May the lifting of my hands be like the evening sacrifices.”

Your sin, God says, has hidden My face from you so that I will not hear.

So when you come in, and you’re saying “God, the gods of my life compete with who You are, but I’m declaring that I belong to you,” God says “This is what I see!…”

[Sticks hands in poop]

“… And what I see comes up like incense before Me. And what’s going on in your soul, I can see in ways nobody else can see.”

And so you know what you say? “Oh, God creating me a clean heart and renewing me a right spirit and cast me not from Thy presence, and take not Thy holy spirit from me.”

And you got chunks coming off of your thumb and God is saying, “What do you want? Do you want Me or do you want you? Do you want your ways or do you want My ways? Because you can’t have what you’re getting the way you think you want it unless you’re gonna make Me the absolute priority of your life.”

And so God comes in, and He says, “I see these in your pores. I see the way you’re talking. I see the way you’re living. I see what it is that you’re doing. And I just want to tell you, child, I’m not the God who made the ear, the eye, and the mouth — and cannot hear and cannot see and cannot speak.”

Mississippi asks US Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade

Updated 7:49 PM ET, Thu July 22, 2021

Mississippi's attorney general told the Supreme Court on Thursday that Roe v. Wade was "egregiously wrong" and should be overturned as she urged the justices to allow a controversial law that bars most abortions after 15 weeks to go into effect.

"The conclusion that abortion is a constitutional right has no basis in text, structure, history, or tradition" state Attorney General Lynn Fitch told the justices in a new brief, launching the opening salvo in the most important abortion-related dispute the court has heard in decades.

Fitch said the case for overruling Roe is "overwhelming."

...

The case reignites the debate surrounding abortion ...

...

Oral arguments will likely be heard in the late fall or early winter ...

...

Mississippi's Gestational Age Act, passed in 2018 but blocked by two federal courts, allows abortion after 15 weeks "only in medical emergencies or for severe fetal abnormality" and has no exception for rape or incest. ...

Fitch said the law "rationally furthers valid interests in protecting unborn life, women's health, and the medical profession's integrity," adding, "It is therefore constitutional."

A district court blocked the law ...

...

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, a Republican, has said the law is a "vehicle" for the high court to revisit Roe v. Wade.

"The question is not are you going to overturn Roe v. Wade, the question is: The science has changed and therefore it makes sense for the court to review their decisions from the past and this is a vehicle in which for them to do it," Reeves told CNN's Jake Tapper ...

Fitch suggested that the court no longer look to viability as a line dividing when a state can regulate the procedure. ...

"Scientific advances show that an unborn child has taken on the human form and features months before viability," she said ... and added that "states should be able to act on these developments."

... But I would say this, that consistent with me talking about sort of what’s happened with the post-modern left, with the progressives – and we see this now where there’s sort of nothing that’s empirically true and any given day you can feel anything about any particular topic – there’s a reason for that. And the reason is they’ve disconnected everything; their whole worldview is disconnected to anything that came before them. So that can be God or a religious set of ideas or something like that.

Who are the most intolerant people in society right now? It’s the people that are constantly telling you how tolerant they are; that’s the irony – it’s the people that tell you you’re a bunch of racists and bigots and homophobes and the rest of it. And that’s the real bizarre flip that we have happening in society, and I think that is linked to – however you want to phrase it – either a post-Christian world or a post-Judeo-Christian world or a post-modern world, however you want to define that.

We’ve removed God from the equation and what do we get? We get government. And they now pray basically to government. They think that they can figure out somehow by sitting in a room with a bunch of other politicians and bureaucrats.

[On why he is no longer an atheist]

I do this off the grid August thing where I literally lock my phone in the safe and I don’t look at any news or television; I’m completely offline and I really disappear and I try to let my brain reset. And two years ago when I did it, one of the thoughts that I kept having sort of in my peace was that: I’m not an atheist. And I came back and I said it in a very casual way, and I just did this live stream where I just sort of said it very flippantly, that I just don’t like the word atheist – it doesn’t fit what I believe. I do believe in something else, even if I can’t completely articulate what it is. I think Jordan (Peterson) has gone a long way toward articulating the type of thing that I believe in.

Jordan and I did about 110 stops in one calendar year and about 20 countries – it was pretty amazing – and when you spend that kind of time listening to a true innovative thinker – I mean, truly the guy that I think is the world’s most important public philosopher, let’s say – talking about his biblical lectures and talking about his perspective on life, and that there has to be a bedrock of something that is real and true, outside of us. And then how he relates that through the biblical stories – it moved me; it moved me over the course of the year that we did this together. So, I would say I’m secular basically in my life, but I definitely in the last year have found that there has to be something outside of us; the rest of this makes no sense.

Mailvox: does he know any women?

I'm beginning to think that Cedarford has never actually spoken to a real live woman:

And my point is that it is good if they do, because middle America, particularly women, are profoundly disturbed by the police state and restrictions on rights they promise....

This, right here, is evidence that otherwise intelligent people can say incredibly stupid things in defense of their most-cherished positions. It may be one of the silliest things I've ever seen anyone write here.

There is no evidence whatsoever that women are profoundly disturbed by a police state, to the contrary, they demand it on a regular basis! Women are delighted when smoking is banned, they weep tears of joy when repressive gun control is enacted and they are happy to be strip-searched at the airport and halted at mandatory late-night traffic stops. The reason is that most women are afraid of liberty and prefer Recht und Ordnung in the name of security; the popularity of the Nazis with women, the suffragettes' embrace of Fascism and the fact that there are no Founding Mothers are not random accidents of history.

The only reason the right-to-life movement hasn't managed to win over women the way MADD and DARE have is because many women are more afraid of having a baby than of the physical repercussions of having an abortion. They couldn't be less concerned about Cedarford's "anti-abortion police state", and if one were to make women as fearful of abortion as they are of crime, drunk drivers, drugs and terrorism, they'd embrace that police state with open arms.

Witness all of the negative press about the middle ages - especially from the church and industry. "They didn't have technology!" and "It was a primitive time!" ring out the nervous calls. But every few years some astonished scientist staggers out of his or her lab and points out that in some detail, the middle ages clearly was every bit as advanced as we are now - much as the Greeks and Romans were - and that points to a more advanced society as a whole. This person is quickly drowned out by exciting news about television shows, a middle ages revival? where's the profit in that? You have been taught the "progressive" view of history: the past was primitive because they did not have technology and morality, and since we now have these things, we are steadily moving toward Utopia. Interestingly, the techno-paranoid societies of "1984" and "Brave New World" also insisted the same thing. Are you seeing how cheap words are, yet?

Despite the endless subtle propaganda against it, the past was not a terrible time. It did not have the technology we have now, or the egalitarian empowerment, and as a result it was less encumbered with the pretense of the individual and the demands of technology. You did not have large discount stores, but then again, you didn't spend time in cars driving to them or waiting in line while the credit card machine malfunctions (all technology seems to work great "on paper" but when deployed in real life, screw up constantly). If you declared that you were a caprisexual and wanted to spend the rest of your life making love to goats, they threw you out of your town and you had to find a new place to settle, such as the free-for-all republics of North Africa and the Middle East. On the other hand, you did not have one hand tied down in every decision because doing the right thing would offend - someone.

To me, at this point, the most important thing is: reality. Since I live in a civilization, and in civilization something is only "real" if people agree it is so, I must modify this to include my fellow citizens actually recognizing this reality: The best thing in the world would be a sane human world, well-adapted to nature and not opposed to it in some paranoiac vision of mankind versus his environment. This realistic society would exist in contrast to the present society, which is fed on economic and social and religious illusion, and would necessarily replace it if brought about, but since society as it is fails in every significant way (although money is still being made, and there's still lots of "kwality" TV), that would be no loss. Further, most people being of a mundane nature would not recognize this society, but the loss of anyone who cannot see the importance of change toward something radically more realistic is not actually a loss; we just say "it's a loss" to make their family feel better - until we can shoot them.

All that I've read, and seen through history, points toward a feudal apolitical society as the height of humankind's adaptivity to nature; apolitical in this case means that you don't have to convince other people en masse of the truth, nor keep up image, but you take a vision couched in knowledge of an accurate adaptation to your environment, and show it to the wisest people in society, and they act on it, commanding others to do the same - even if they object, and their personal profit does not increase, nor their stature, but their workload does. Right is right, and truth is truth; this isn't to say I favor some abstract absolute to which we refer in deference in every situation, but that I think truth is found in any situation and commands action. Rubbery monster attacking city? Call out the troops - and so on.

[Entry for “Black Lives Matter”]

...

While most innocent protesters have unwittingly marched under the banner of an anti-American subversive organization, the truth is the organization has been infiltrated by the violent Antifa terror organization. Antifa has acted as provocateurs at BLM demonstrations, turning them into riots. The group's leadership is working in close consultation with Antifa and other Marxist groups dedicated to the violent overthrow of the United States system of government.

It was the Summer of Love until Black Lives Matter protesters started murdering Black Lives Matter protesters. BLM protesters murdered two African Americans in Seattle's Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, including a child, and Black policemen in St. Louis and Oakland. BLM protesters murdered an 8-year-old Black girl in Atlanta, and a Black man. A one-year-old Black toddler was murdered while sitting in a stroller in the BLM violence. A journalist was murdered by a Black Live Matter protester in St. Louis. In Davenport, Iowa BLM protesters murdered another protester. In Madison, Wisconsin BLM homophobes beat up and left for dead a homosexual state senator. Churches were set on fire. Most, and virtually all in some areas, BLM terrorists are privileged white liberal, progressive, socialists and Communists. Many if not most Blacks soon tired of white liberal Communists explaining to them why their lives mattered. Democrat mayors and governors did nothing and stood by and watched while white liberal socialists burnt down Black communities and business districts in the name of "Black Lives Matter."

[Entry for “Black Lives Matter”]

Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a fundraising arm for the DNC and Biden presidential campaign. In 2021 it was discovered BLM founder Patrisse Cullors spent more than $3.4 million of donations to purchase 3 private mansions in exclusive white neighborhoods. In 2020, Black Lives Matter protesters murdered at least six Blacks, including two policemen, two children, and shot at least 3 other Blacks including one minor.

BLM is a Fifth Column front organization organization posing to promote social change. The movement is a highly organized Marxist/Leftist organization and has formed a united front with other far-Left extremist groups which call for Communist revolution, seeking to uproot the American constitutional form of government and install a Marxist dictatorship of the proletariat. The movement is also known for its violent homophobia and violence against African American free thinkers.

The group has very little concern for the lives and wellbeing of African Americans, burning down their communities and shopping districts. The group's main objective is Marxist revolution. Its demands, as of mid 2020, are the abolition of police departments across the United States and the release of all criminals from prison, as well as a host of other far-Left agenda projects, including the Green New Deal and the imminent takeover of the Democrat Party by Marxists (Marxists believe in single party control and the outlawing and censorship of opposition). Group organizers, who are principally white, specifically target sociopathic and criminal elements in both black and white society for recruitment.

The RELIGION of Atheism Explained

What if I told you there was a group of humans in the 21st century that still believe in miracles? 

They will tell you with a straight face ... they are enlightened and don’t believe fairy tales and myths. ...

... only in that which they can touch, taste, hear, smell and see. It must be measurable and quantifiable and testable, observable and repeatable. 

And their genesis story goes like this: In the beginning there was NOTHING!!!!!! And it blew up! 

… Nothing blew up once, and made everything. Atheists believe that inorganic non-living material can resurrect from the dead and become alive to begin to evolve and through struggle and difficulty become more advanced with the hope that someday we will live forever. They believe in morals coming from nature and instilling in us the need to be nice to each other and help each other even to our detriment in order to save the world and become enlightened beings whose good works will last eternally. They even believe there are other life forms out there that are always more advanced than us. Always more moral and altruistic. They will come here someday to teach us how to become saved from ourselves through their superior knowledge, wisdom and gifts to us where someday mankind will lie down with the lion and the lamb and all will be redeemed. 

... atheists have to mimic and counterfeit the reality that is God’s revelation to man and his salvation through His Son in order to make their belief system coherent, livable , purposeful and meaningful. 

Atheism is simply the religion of the proud who refuse to acknowledge their Creator, but manage to craft their own idols out of fantasy and wishful thinking all the while attacking and demeaning Christians who, though not perfect, do have the one thing they long for: The actual answer to the question they have no way to answer. 

Why are we here? 

Because your Creator said so. 

Maybe it’s time you abandon your fairy tale and join us, the water’s fine!

The correct answer concerning the evidence for God is precisely the same as it is for practically everything else in the historical record, which is to say the copious documentary evidence available. We can no more reasonably doubt the existence of God than we can doubt the existence of Alexander the Great, Abraham Lincoln, or any other human being who existed before the invention of audio and video recording and for whom there are physical artifacts that support the documentary evidence.

Can skeptics produce plausible explanations for why so much false documentary evidence of God exists if He does not? Sure. Just as I can plausibly explain that the myth of George Washington was invented in order to provide Americans with founding Romulus-style figure of reverence in order to compensate for their lack of kings and common history. I mean, there were no cherry trees in Virginia. And isn't it ludicrous to take literally the myth of Washington's rjection of the proffered crown when the story is a patently a straightforward imitation of the Roman dictator Cincinnatus.

...

It's one thing to claim that your brain must be talking to itself when you're the only one who hears it. It's another when other people hear it too.

Most modern Christian apologists are incompetent because they approach the discourse as a chance to explicate theology rather than understanding that it is a form of intellectual combat where the goal is to discredit the interlocutor. So, like Hovind, they explicate a little theology that looks like an irrelevant evasion while simultaneously managing to get intellectually discredited by young boys. ...

First things first. Destroy the interlocutor. Answer every question directly, on his terms, and then go after the vulnerabilities they reveal with a flamethrower. Only then, when you are standing upon whatever quivering ashes remain, can you explicate further if you wish.

A professor of mathematics complains ...

For complex historical reasons, Americans have long privately dismissed scientists and mathematicians as impractical and elitist, even while publicly paying lip service to them. One reason is that an abstract, scientific approach to problems and issues often leads to conclusions that are at odds with religious and cultural beliefs and scientists are sometimes tone-deaf to the social environment in which they state their conclusions. A more politically sensitive approach to problems and issues, on the other hand, often leads to positions that simply don’t jibe with the facts, no matter how delicately phrased....

Dinosaurs cavorting with humans, climate scientists cooking up the global warming “hoax,” the health establishment using vaccines to bring about socialism – it’s hard to imagine mainstream leaders in other advanced economies not laughing at such claims.

I always enjoy the left-liberal arguments which revolve around the idea that because someone, somewhere, might be laughing at an idea, it must not be true. And, of course, given that there is no global warming and climate scientists did cook up one of the most colossal scams in human history, the professor manages to explain more cogently than he imagined why Americans, for all their flaws, still aren't dumb enough to vote for scientists.

The problem isn't so much that "an abstract, scientific approach to problems and issues often leads to conclusions that are at odds with religious and cultural beliefs", it is that ideology hidden under a veneer of an abstract, scientific approach to problems and issues often leads to conclusions that are at odds with readily observable reality.

Americans don't refuse to vote for scientists because they think scientists threaten their beliefs, Americans refuse to vote for them because they conclude, on the basis of considerable evidence, scientists are foolish and stupid.

Why is Mexico Getting Our Water During a Drought?

The Colorado River in Northern Arizona is at its lowest level since the 1930s. Lake Mead is now at 36% capacity — almost dry. Yet, according to a special 1944 treaty, America must give Mexico “x” millions of gallons of Colorado River water per year. Why? Mexico is surrounded by ocean water! Desalinate the ocean water, Brown fools. (Apparently, Mexico “plans to construct four desalination plants” in the northeast. But, knowing Mexico, it’ll take 30 years, and 100 White engineers, to do that!).

Saaay, who was the president of America in 1944? Oh yeah, the commie, FDR. Thanks, commie. You can always count on a commie to do the wrong thing.

7 Ways the Left Benefited from Covid-19

...
1. Covid allowed the Left to steal the 2020 election. That theft required months of planning. But under the cover of Covid-hysteria, it wasn’t hard to do; most people were preoccupied with Covid nonsense.

2. It allowed the Left to take revenge on the Right for 4 years of Trumpism (many liberals couldn’t sleep for 4 years! Trump Derangement Syndrome was real. Some liberals are still in therapy today: Mrs. Weinberg: “I’m sorry, Dr. Goldberg, but I just can’t shake this horrible feeling that Orange Man Bad will return someday — or, someone like him…return to terrorize us with freedom, a border wall and financial stability! Oh, it’s just too terrible to think about!!” Dr. Goldberg: “Now, there, there, Mrs. Weinberg, calm down, I’m sure that right-wing populism will soon die on the vine, and that everything will return to Clintonesque/Obamaesque normalcy. But if not, we can always flee to Israel!”

3. It wiped out all feelings of normalcy on the Right (the Right needs “normal, stable and calm,” but the Left doesn’t — in fact, the Left hates “normal, stable and calm” because it’s too “White suburbia”).

4. The lockdowns punished conservative small-business owners (most of them were Trump supporters).

5. It allowed leftists to use the government to bully and control people (leftists love using the government to bully and control people — just look at California).

6. It normalized the Left’s vaccine-mania (“mandatory vaccines for every ailment” will soon be the new normal).

7. It wiped out Trump’s great economy, which tarnished the legacy of Trump and Trumpism (i.e., right-wing populism).

.

[1] Covid-19 hysteria was entirely media-driven. Without the global media pushing it hard 24/7, Covid-hysteria couldn’t have seized the world and cost it many thousands of lives (e.g., suicides, heart attacks), and, billions or even trillions of dollars.

New Texas law opens up abortion bounty hunting

July 9, 2021

An antiabortion law in Texas will soon allow any U.S. citizen to sue Texas-based abortion clinics, doctors, and anyone who aids in an abortion. If successful, the petitioner, who does not have to reside in Texas, will receive an $10,000 award and the cost for attorney’s fees. Pro-choice advocates worry that this cash prize may create a new cottage industry of aggressive antiabortion bounty hunters. 

The provision, which passed the Texas state legislature this spring, is part of a larger antiabortion bill which will ban all abortions after a doctor detects a fetal heartbeat, usually around the six-week mark. 

...

The law is set to take effect on Sept. 1, and lawyers for abortion clinics are unsure of how to rebuke it because the government isn’t the enforcing body. In the past, six-week bans in other states have all been eventually found unconstitutional as they’ve risen through the legal system. 

This “legal hack” could be a way to get around that.
 
Typically, governmental agencies shut down or challenge abortion clinics accused of breaking the law, and the clinics then have a way to challenge the constitutionality of the state law through the courts. By deputizing Americans to sue on their own, clinics and doctors can no longer employ that method. 

...

“Every citizen is now a private attorney general,” said Josh Blackman, a constitutional law professor at South Texas College of Law Houston.“You can have random people who are against abortion start suing tomorrow.”

...

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott stood behind the provision, citing his religious beliefs. 

“Our creator endowed us with the right to life, and yet millions of children lose their right to life every year because of abortion,” Abbott said ... The legislature “worked together on a bipartisan basis to pass a bill that I’m about to sign that ensures that the life of every unborn child who has a heartbeat will be saved from the ravages of abortion.”

Things that are burned:

"Think for yourself." What a nice sentiment... and that is all. The average Homer Simpson thought this made a greater justification for being selfish, and took the exhortations of every speed metal band from the 1980s to heart. Now he does the same things but has a handy retort to critics.

"Think of others." It's a great idea if you like tokens. In our inner hearts, most of us are sick to death of others. They crowd us, most of them are stupid, and the ones that aren't are so manic with a desire to escape that they'll push us under to get a few inches above. But, if once a month we think of others by working at a soup kitchen, we feel vindicated in continuing our slothful, selfish, slovenly behavior the other 29 days.

"Think of the children." The only people who really take this to heart are the pedophiles. It's a great way to force other people to be sympathetic to whatever you're doing. We need nuclear weapons -- think of the children! Like pointing out someone's fly is open, it only functions to take wind from their sails, not goad them to something productive.

What never gets burned are the things you can't sum up in a catchphrase. Like thinking of what is realistic and pragmatic. Thinking of what will be true in all situations. These things don't burn because they aren't tangible and yet open-ended at the same time. They require interpretation, and that interpretation is not universal, so they're garbage as memes. But as guides to life, in a time when everyone else is drowning in the burned-out? They're superior.

[Debate topic: “Are women the property of their husbands?”]

Wives are property. After marriage , a wife should enter her husband's house wearing her wedding gown and carrying nothing else. Then ... she will spend the rest of her life there. Once in her husband should strip her and throw the gown away. From then on she will spend the rest of her life nude in her husband's house serving him. She will clean , cook , do the laundry and chores. She should also be kept pregnant as much as possible.

Yes women are the property of their husbands: Marriage is not some weird equal partnership. Men and women are not the same. For ages people accepted that children were the property of their fathers and then after marriage, women were the property of their husbands. This universal truth can be found in most religions ... Feminism came in and screwed people's minds, corrupting wonderful real marriage into a disgusting perverted equal partnership. ...

The woman was made for the man and not vice versa. The man is under obligation to protect and provide for his wife, not vice versa. The woman is his help-meet and under his loving authority. She excels at being a wonderful wife and mother and raising up the next generation wisely. Also, both of them must mutually satisfy their sexual needs. This is true patriarchy, the bedrock of civilisation. It's a pity that the modern world has moved so far from truth and sense.

Being property doesn't mean being a slave. ...
Men cannot abuse their wives or "do as they please(in a negative sense)". They have duties and responsibilities ...

Real Fathers and real husbands have been shot down by the deception called "gender equality" and in their place buffoons, nincompoops, white knights, manginas and emasculated men have arisen. Also, women have transformed themselves into something that didn't exist before.
