COLUMBINE VICTIM’S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER


Guess our national leaders didn’t expect this.

On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.

"Your laws ignore our deepest needs, Your words are empty air. You’ve stripped away our heritage, You’ve outlawed simple prayer. Now gunshots fill our classrooms, And precious children die. You seek for answers everywhere, And ask the question “Why?” You regulate restrictive laws, Through legislative creed. And yet you fail to understand, That God is what we need!"
They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness.. The following is a portion of the transcript:

“Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.

“The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain’s heart.

“In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA - because I don’t believe that they are responsible for my daughter’s death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel’s murder I would be their strongest opponent

I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy — it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

Your laws ignore our deepest needs, Your words are empty air. You’ve stripped away our heritage, You’ve outlawed simple prayer. Now gunshots fill our classrooms, And precious children die. You seek for answers everywhere, And ask the question “Why?” You regulate restrictive laws, Through legislative creed. And yet you fail to understand, That God is what we need!

“Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation’s history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine’s tragedy occurs —politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.

“As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA — I give to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone! My daughter’s death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!” - Darrell Scott


Unless you happened to be watching C-Span,  you never heard peep-one about this, because its message was, and is, anathema to today's public chroniclers.  The video above was produced by a young men who states, "I had never heard of this (Columbine) ..."  Yikes.  It seems like yesterday that the likes of Bill Clinton and Michael Moore used it to make political hay.

Will those House Judiciary members pay any attention to what this man said? Not only No, but hell no! The House will likely pass another law banning this kind of testimony before their "holy" assembly.

If anyone out there thinks I am being cynical bout Congress, either House, they would be absolutely right.

I've said it before and I will say it again: President Reagan (the last great President this country will have for a good many generations) used to say, "Trust but verify". Today, with what we have in the White House and in Congress, that adage should be altered to say, "Do not trust, and be damned sure to verify."

The administration said that US special forces attempted to free hostages held by ISIS in Syria. The hostages were moved prior to the mission, so no one was rescued.

That admission was bad enough, but the administration said information about where and how many hostages were held came from some freed hostages!

This is cruelly stupid. The white house has caused the death warrants for all hostages still held. ISIS won't release any more hostages, and will kill them instead. Yet another triumph of the Obama administration.

Screwface calling ...                
Oklahoma’s Catholic Archbishop filed a lawsuit on Wednesday to halt the use of what he said were stolen (and evidently consecrated)  communion wafers destined for a satanic black mass ceremony to be held next month in Oklahoma City.

Officials for the Oklahoma Civic Center said that since the center is a city-owned facility, the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution does not allow for them to turn away productions based on their content.

Asshole

Famed evolutionary biologist and atheist leader Richard Dawkins reportedly said this week that “nice Christians” and “nice Muslims” might actually be making the “world safe for extremists.”

While speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival in the U.K. on Wednesday, Dawkins apparently claimed that moderates inadvertently contribute to faith-fueled fundamentalism and extremism.

“It’s very important that we should not demonize ordinary, law-abiding, very decent Muslims which of course is the vast majority in this country,” Dawkins said, according to the Telegraph.

Dawkins went on to say that moderate religious people who are kind create the notion that “there’s something good about religion” and that there are benefits to bringing children up to embrace theological ideals. He such such a notion leads people to believe in something without having evidence or the need to offer justification.

“They’re entitled simply to say ‘oh that’s my faith, I believe it, you’re not allowed to question it and you’re not allowed to ask me why I hold it,” he continued.

Asshole“Once you teach people that that’s a legitimate reason for believing something then you as it were give a license to the extremists who say, ‘My belief is that I’m supposed to be a suicide bomber or I’m supposed to blow up buildings — it’s my faith and you can’t question that,’” he added, according to the Telegraph.

Dawkins also told the audience during the same appearance that he wasn’t always the outspoken atheist activist he is now. In fact, when he was 13 years old (alias, Wormwood), he prayed regularly and sought God out over a two-year period, the Guardian reported.

“I was briefly seduced by it and took it all in and would pray very vigorously every night,” Dawkins said.

The atheist leader recently came under fire for tweets about “date rape,” “stranger rape,” “mild pedophilia” and “violent pedophilia.” [Full Screed]

Tailgunner, basic logic says it's impossible to prove a negative (i.e., that God doesn't exist, of gods if you'd rather) that's something that's covered in a highschool Theory of Knowledge class.

But if you want to prove Mr. Dawkins is wrong it's necessary to prove that God does exist (which no-one has managed to do to date).

But to quote Mark Twain "Faith is believing what you know ain't true."

"Faith is believing what you know ain't true."

Learning epistemology from comedians didn't work then and it doesn't work now.

Faith is essential to believe anything is true. As Bertrand Russell discovered, the search for truth and knowledge from phenomenalism is a fool's errand.

   HELTER SKELTER  Provoking Racial Unrest                                                               


 The Master race Baiters






We now know from Michael Brown’s autopsy that he was not shot in the back. We now know from other eye witnesses that Michael Brown did attack the police officer who stopped him. If leaks are to be believes, we know the officer was seriously injured in the attack.


There is a lot that bothers me about all of this. I am bothered by the slow response from the Ferguson Police. Many facts could have mitigated some of the issues. I am bothered by so much of the media getting so many of the early facts wrong. I am bothered by so many people who wish to treat this as a binary situation. I am bothered by the Al Sharpton’s and Jesse Jackson’s of the world swooping in to fan the flames and fundraise.


But I am most bothered by the near gleefulness of some that the early facts were wrong. . . [Full]


I think this is the first time I've even mentioned Ferguson.  It's been apparent, to me anyway, for a long while that Obama/Holder and gang are intent on fulfilling  serial killer Charles Manson's "Helter Skelter" vision ( an apocalyptic war he believed would arise from tension over racial relations between blacks and whites) .  It now seems  that  Ferguson is  a repeat of the  George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin charade, where a black thug attacked a white who, in self defense, shot the thug.  All that's left is for Obama to take a break from the golf course to tell us that "Michael Brown could have been my son."

I am bothered by the "hang the cop" attitude announced by Missouri Governor Nixon and while I have been hopeful that the St. Louis Prosecutor is a principled guy, he has begun a Grand Jury investigation without having first interviewed Officer Darren Wilson - after almost two weeks have passed since the shooting.

But know for sure that should the Grand Jury not recommend charging the officer, General Holder will most certainly try Wilson for Federal Civil Rights Violations.

            Global Warming Fade-Out

 






Michael E Mann; Climate Twat
“an opportunity to denounce capitalist greed.”
"an opportunity to denounce capitalist greed.””


“Instead of discrediting Erlich, his work, somehow, gave birth to what Mann calls “environmental politics.” Continuing, Mann asserts that Earth Day “became an opportunity to denounce capitalist greed.””
Climate change a symbolic battle against an unpleasant, toxic way of life

Mann is obviously a believer in anthropogenic (or man-made) climate change. Much of his essay is spent deriding the left for its unrestrained rhetoric that it uses to “scare Americans into action.”  He says: “the chatter itself, I would argue, has done its share to stall progress.”

Within his argument is some history and context that is illustrative for those who see climate change as cyclical — something natural that has happened before and will happen again, rather than something that is new, scary, and human-caused. Those of us who believe the climate changes, but that human activity is, certainly, not the primary driver, struggle to understand the cult-like following of alarmists like Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org (“A group that seeks to create a mass movement against climate change”) — who Mann spends several paragraphs criticizing.

While I doubt that this is Mann’s intent, a careful reader will realize that today’s climate hysteria has less to do with the climate and more to do with control and economic change.

(Hockey Stick) Mann starts his history lesson with Paul Erlich, author of The Population Bomb — whom I wrote about in June. Mann calls Erlich’s book “a foundational text in the environmental movement” — yet, he points out that Erlich’s “predictions didn’t pan out.” Instead of discrediting Erlich, his work, somehow, gave birth to what Mann calls “environmental politics.” Continuing, Mann asserts that Earth Day “became an opportunity to denounce capitalist greed.”

Using acid rain as an example, Mann points out: “environmentalists meanwhile found out the problems were less dire than they had claimed” and that “Today, most scientists have concluded that the effects of acid rain were overstated to begin with.”

Because I follow the politics of energy policy, I found this point Mann makes most interesting: “Environmental issues became ways for politicians to signal their clan identity to supporters.” He observes: “As symbols, the ideas couldn’t be compromised.” And, he states: “climate change is perfect for symbolic battle.” He calls carbon dioxide “a side effect of modernity.”

Addressing the charts and graphs that so frequently accompany the climate change hyperbole, Mann says: “In the history of our species, has any human heart ever been profoundly stirred by a graph? Some other approach, proselytizers have recognized, is needed.”

   ISIS supporters urge Ferguson demonstrators to embrace radical Islam
Now, in Ferguson, where mobs have been rioting for more than a week over the shooting death of a black teen by a police officer, Islamic State is claiming a presence.

Video of CNN’s Jake Tapper delivering a report in Ferguson shows someone carrying the Islamic State sign down the street, keeping pace with Tapper.


Oh My
IT'S A ROLLOVER

The Daily Mail in the United Kingdom reported other ways ISIS is threatening Americans in Ferguson.

Among the social media messages monitored by the paper was one from Amarka Al-Ahlam, who said, “I believe that all #IS members in America should travel to Ferguson and prepare to establish a revolutionary Islamic state.”

Amreeki Witness said: “It’s time to strike fear into the hearts of the oppressors. #FergusonUnderIS.”

The Mail said one ISIS supporter, Mujahid Miski, said he was based in Africa. He reportedly was leading the campaign of fear, writing: “So how is democracy treating you guys? #FergunsonUnderIS.”

The crucifixions, the beheadings and the mass executions of men, the kidnapping of women to be sold as wife-slaves to so-called holy warriors, the destruction of ancient civilizations and cultures, from Assyrian statues to Yazidi villages, and the systematic intimidation, extortion, and murder of Christians—all have a purpose that can no longer be ignored:

Is the Pontiff of Peace advocating war? No, but the self-proclaimed “Caliph” Ibrahim wants his fight to be a true holy war on both sides, and his strategy seems to be succeeding.

Pope Francis is walking a knife edge—or perhaps, better said, the blade of a crusaders’ sword—as he tries to mobilize support for Christians and other minorities victimized by the ferocious partisans of the so-called Islamic state.

“Where there is an unjust aggression I can only say that it is legitimate to stop the unjust aggressor,” he told reporters throwing questions at him on the plane as he returned from South Korea to the Vatican on Monday.

“I underscore the verb ‘to stop,’” he told them. “I am not saying ‘bomb’ or ‘make war,’ but ‘stop him.’ The means by which he can be stopped must be evaluated. Stopping the aggressor is legitimate.”

The “him,” the “aggessor” in this case is the self-anointed “caliph” whose forces, formerly called ISIS, now dominate swathes of Syria and Iraq, and this is just the kind of reaction he’s been hoping for.
The crucifixions, the beheadings and the mass executions of men, the kidnapping of women to be sold as wife-slaves to so-called holy warriors, the destruction of ancient civilizations and cultures, from Assyrian statues to Yazidi villages, and the systematic intimidation, extortion, and murder of Christians—all have a purpose that can no longer be ignored:

“Take this sword and these arms in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost! May they and it serve you in this good cause, but never may they shed innocent blood!” Pope Urban

Entire families abandoned their professions so they could prepare for the long journey to the Holy Land.

“The Welshman left his Hunting, the Dane his drinking party, and the Norwegian his raw fish–all eager to join the expedition to the Holy Land,” said William of Malmesburry.

Caliph Ibrahim, as he calls himself, wants to provoke a 21st century crusade against his Islamic State. He wants to force his enemies into a religious war arousing atavistic instincts rooted in the Middle Ages—the great glory days of Islam—that linger in the hearts of many Muslims around the world. And by every indication he is succeeding.
With each American bomb that falls and each drone that flies over the territories the caliph has conquered, he comes a little closer to that goal. Perhaps there really is no choice. As Hilaire Belloc, a poet, satirist, Catholic historian, and author of a book on the Crusades once wrote in his couplet “The Pacifist”: “Pale Ebenezer thought it wrong to fight, / But Roaring Bill (who killed him) thought it right.”

Certainly in recent days desperate men of the cloth, including some of the highest officials in the Catholic and Anglican churches, have played into the caliph’s hands by speaking out in support of the U.S. military action or calling for still more to be done—thus imbuing close air support with heavenly purpose that it probably can and should do without.

Even before Monday, Pope Francis used language interpreted by many as an endorsement of war.

There is a painful irony here. As recently as last month Francis was moved to tears by the carnage in Gaza, Iraq, and Ukraine.

“Never war, never war,” he said. “I am thinking, above all, of children who are deprived of the hope of a worthwhile life, a future. Dead children, wounded children, mutilated children, orphaned children, children whose toys are things left over from war, children who don’t know how to smile. Please stop,” said Francis. “I ask you with all my heart, it’s time to stop. Stop, please!”  [Full Text]



“Caliph” Ibrahim (wants his fight to be a true holy war on both sides) seems to be taking a page from Obama's playbook.  Well, ISIS are worse than Nazis, wouldn't you agree?


To Moslems this is all about religion.  HERE, Dr. Scott Hahn, a leading Catholic theologian discusses the genesis of their belief which, they believe, has, like Christianity and Judaism, roots that go all the way back to Abraham.  And it does.  But .... there's a pig in the poke, so to speak.

No, Leftists are more effective murderers by an order of magnitude. They have all the religious fervor of Arabs, but are far more scientific, industrialized, and disciplined.

The question of Christian leaders endorsing holy war is well worth pondering. I allowed myself to view images of the atrocities in Iraq (linked at Jawa), and it disturbed me. Our minister was moved to tears on the matter.

The problem is holy men have always relied on political leaders to do the dirty work, so they can pretend to live in the Garden of Eden. Now that the Armies of Hell are exploiting the weakness of Barry0, faith-based strategies just lead to mass executions of Christians. This is confusing to our holy men. Praying for our leaders seems silly now, even to them.

One of the things I take from the Gospels is the faith of the pharisees is the first to crumble under pressure.

This lady evidently came in with the doll, sat it down and had lunch with it.  There's a back-story here that's too sad to ponder over.   Which means I just did.

I hope you're wrong, Roger. I hope this is a gift for some real little girl, and this woman was simply amusing herself on the way to deliver it, imagining the tea parties the intended recipient will have.

But I fear you are right, and this is going to haunt me for a long time.

I had to photoshop my grandson's shades onto me so Holder can't steal my iris print.

Don't worry about Holder. He's busy out in Missouri looking for new Dem voters to register and whiteys to prosecute.

iris print ?

You also need to grow a big moustache.
It can be hard to get a microphone near a person, unless you can turn on their cell phone mic.
Someone watching thru a telephoto lens needs to have a lip reader to know what you are saying.
A moustache keeps that lip reader at bay and forces "them" to follow close enough for a parabolic mic, close enough for you to spot and kill them.

EPA STORM TROOPERS
They found that the regulations would somewhat affect the climate — by eighteen-thousandths of a degree Celsius by 2100.
The Environmental Protection Agency’s new proposed rules, which seek to limit carbon emissions from power plants, would cost the American economy $51 billion, as well as 224,000 jobs, every year through 2030, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates .

With that significant of an economic impact, one would hope the EPA had a pretty good justification, right?



Knappenberger and his colleague Patrick J. Michaels crunched the numbers using an EPA-developed climate-model emulator. They found that the regulations would somewhat affect the climate — by eighteen-thousandths of a degree Celsius by 2100.


Where's RICO?
“We’re not even sure how to put such a small number into practical terms, because, basically, the number is so small as to be undetectable,” Knappenberg and Michaels wrote when they released their findings . “Which, no doubt, is why it’s not included in the EPA Fact Sheets. It is not too small, however, that it shouldn’t play a huge role in every and all discussions of the new regulations.”

That’s not the only time the EPA has used some suspect math. A new report from the Government Accountability Office found that the EPA was calculating how its regulations would affect employment using a study outdated by 20 years that had, even when current, looked at only four industrial sectors. You can read about even more about the agency’s number-fudging here.


ONCE AGAIN: The Environmental Protection Agency’s new proposed rules, which seek to limit carbon emissions from power plants, would cost the American economy $51 billion, as well as 224,000 jobs, every year through 2030, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates .

The 'Climate Scientist' Deal is this: build the model to give the desired result, apply for another grant, get big bucks, rinse, repeat, make a very nice living while the Actually Employed in Useful Work go begging for jobs.

The EPA sub-Deal is write more regs requiring more people to enforce them chasing already miniscule diminishing returns, grow the agency size and budget, which grows your GS grade, make a very nice living while the Actually Employed in Useful Work go begging for jobs.

Bonus Deal: Feel smugly self righteous that you're saving the planet while the Actually Employed in Useful Work go begging for jobs.
I hear there is a volcano cranking up in Iceland. If we time it right, ...uhhh never mind. NSA is watching.

Heh, Really cold weather in the North East this winter. May not have enough power to keep everything going with coal fed power plants shut down. Could be an economic disaster for the region. Looks like snow this late August. Considering how many people in this area voted for Obama my heart doesn't exactly throb with sympathy.

The more likely scenario, however, is that Obamacare does fail. It either fails politically, renounced by a wide consensus that includes a growing number of Democrats. Or it succumbs to the financial complications (the insurance “death spiral”) of the very amendments desperately tacked on to save it.

If it does fail, the effect will be historic. Obamacare will take down with it more than Mary Landrieu and Co. It will discredit Obama’s new liberalism for years to come. - Charles Krauthammer; Why Libs are panicked

Yeah, all we have to do now is convince the statist republicans it's worthy of a death sentence. The same ones who are convinced they are about to cash in on the Latino vote, if only they pass comprehensive immigration reform.

Idiots!

Personally, I hope it takes all the liberals so far down, they end up in the sea; like drowning rats from a sinking ship.
