A little common sense about Ferguson somehow got slipped in

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, not one of my pinups, said this on national TV last night in a discussion about the riotous nonsense in Ferguson:

"The white police officers wouldn't be there if you weren't killing each other," Giuliani said.

Well, yes, that does seem obvious.  But how few people will come to that logical conclusion in the heat of passion.  And 93% of black murders are committed by other blacks.  The article which discusses Giuliani's statement can be found on the neocon rag Newsmax (a magazine/website that offers very little else other than war-mongering).  You can access it here.

President Puppet and Junior Emperor of the World is, of course. bloviating about the faults of the justice system, and not about the fact that 80% of violent crime is committed by fatherless young black males.

Meanwhile as we speak, Negro rioters and looters are all doing their Kwanzaa shopping early, and the little hamlet of Ferguson is turning into a hell hole.

God help the residents there.

At least someone is concerned about the fate of Christianity in Europe

In a recent discussion about various problems in the world a political leader brought up the touchy subject of the persecution of Christians and the silence of the European Union.  The article states in part:

"....EU officials are reluctant to speak about the persecution of Christians by Muslim militants in Iraq and Syria or elsewhere, because they fear that this would be perceived as politically incorrect. Meanwhile there is a growing Christianophobia in the world, he said.

"Most of EU members avoid discussing the issue.  They are ashamed to pronounce it as they were ashamed to put a phrase acknowledging the Christian roots of Europe into the EU Constitution,:

"If you don't remember and don't respect your own roots and traditions, how can you respect the traditions of other people?"

Who made such a statement?

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Stan Freberg is My Hero

The darker the days become (and we're not referring to the approaching Winter months) the more we need a little dose of humor, just to keep our heads above water.  Those of my readers who are old enough should remember the delightful antics of one of our great Wits, Stan Freberg.

Freberg is a unique character.  Whether he ventured into radio, films, animated cartoons, essays or television he always had a knock for making us chuckle.  He started as a teenager doing voice work for Warner Brothers Cartoons and from that time on whenever crazy comedy was required Freberg was there to supply it.

For your amusement, then, we present to you one of his more famous radio skits.  Amazingly, he predicted the lunatic lengths to which political commissars would go to censor our thoughts and our speaking.  We believe Freberg saw all this coming back in the 1960s.

And if you would like to see what Freberg could do with a humdrum TV commercial, try this:

Happily Mr Freberg is still with us and still keeping smiles on our faces while imparting his wit and wisdom.

Neil Clark is STILL confused

Several months back we linked to a piece by Mr Neil Clark which posed some very interesting questions. He has subsequently followed up with another confession of his confusion:


That was in July.

But he continues to be confused:


To which I would reply, "Fear not, Mr Clark.  We're all still confused".

Just a note on the Cardinal Kasper African comments

Kasper in mufti
Regarding all the musings about Cardinal Kasper's famous remarks to the African episcopate that they should "not be telling us" what to do or think, which we have been reading about endlessly since the Bastard Synod, I am amazed that most people consider Kasper's fuming as an example of racism.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Kasper is not a stupid man.  Petty, dishonest and arrogant, yes; stupid, no.  We repeat: racism had nothing to do with his remarks.

What his remarks did have something to do with was sodomy, and everyone should have been able to see that quite clearly right away and not confront him with silly accusations of racism. The "racism" story only produced a needless red herring issue and took attention away from the homosexuals. The African Bishops have their heads firmly on their shoulders when it comes to sex perversion and can see what evils emerge from the mortal sin of sodomy...and want nothing to do with it. Kasper it seems wants everything to do with it, and that is the reason why he didn't want to hear what the African Bishops had to say.  And he wants to apparently give this mortal sin his blessings.  Why else would he be working tirelessly to see that the Holy Catholic Church blesses it as well?

The "racism" line was peddled by those who for whatever reason were not keeping their eyes on the ball. The more mendacious writers use the race card whenever they can so it is doubly important that we keep our minds clear on this.  Unwittingly, some good Catholics took the focus off buggery by calling Kasper's remarks racist.

While it is true the hubbub caught Kasper off guard at first he deftly handled it with his customary reliance on lying and changing the subject.

Krazy Kardinal Kasper.  Never underestimate the intentions of vile men.

Which is it, Cardinal O'Malley?

Cardinal O'Malley, we laymen would like to know: which is it?

On the one hand you want the Vatican to act against your brother-Bishop Flynn for supposedly hiding a homosexual predator priest, as stated here.

And on the other hand, you want the Church to accept sodomitical relationships, as stated here.

Just which is it, Your Eminence?  Do you want to protect the Church from an onslaught of homosexual men who are buggering adolescent boys, or do you want the Church to accept two sodomites living together who will have the legal right to "adopt" young boys who will be eventually buggered by them?

In lieu of an explanation we in the pews can only conclude one of two things.  Either you are losing your mind completely or you are engaging in the worst form of blatant hypocrisy it has been my misfortune to witness.

Which, exactly, is it, Your Eminence?

Either way, you are a disgrace to the cloth you wear and the Church you are shaming.


The Great Father in Washington

I recommend to my readers this very amusing and very sensible article by Jack Perry over at LewRockwell.com.

A sample:

When there are no successes to point towards as a reason to be confident in one’s government, the Great Father can be counted on to use fear of a scary enemy to rally the people. A lie can go around the world twice before the truth has even tied its shoes. The Great Father knows this and he also knows that it’s best to have a few enemies waiting in the wings to distract the American people. To be sure, certain among the American people (the species Ovis aries americanus) will fall for this every time. Which is why it remains effective and American foreign policy infomercials succeed in selling wars without genuine objectives. In fact, were U.S. foreign policy a product, it would be sold on late-night infomercials along with spray-on “hair”, vegetable slicers, and compilation CDs of 1970s hits. And if you purchased it, you would get a few wars, absolutely free. Let’s have a look at some of the Great Father’s latest products.
First up, we see “frightening” reports from the Great Father and NATO (North Atlantic Tubthumping Oligarchy) that the Russians are getting frequent-flier miles close to NATO and U.S. airspace. Why, look at that! The Great Father and NATO were just minding their own business trying to lure Ukraine into the car with promises of candy when here came the Russians to interfere! Those Russian waskally wabbits are making NATO fighter aircraft look like Elmer Fudd! Excuse me, Great Father, but those are your enemies, not mine. Vladimir Putin and the Russians have not threatened me, nor are they saying they want me to live under the Russian government. Nor do they pick my pockets, which is more than I can say for you, Great Father. The reason Russian aircraft are doing this, Great Father, is because you are provoking them over in Ukraine. By the way, the Russians warned you against doing that. So Russian aircraft are lurking around NATO airspace, so what? Am I supposed to be afraid of this?
Among other things the author suggests wryly that the best solution to Emperor Obama's delusions of grandeur might be to have him engage in a martial arts contest with his bete noire, Vladimir Putin.

I believe I would enjoy watching that myself.
