  • Trump seems ready to fight the world on climate change. But he's likely to meet resistance

    One only needs to look at what the un has become, and the power they seek over nations, and imagine a far more nefarious outcome with global control of any aspect of the Internet.

    This is from a blog I wrote in 2013.
    Here is a yet another example of what is wrong with the un, the curiously named Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The title sounds noble enough. Who is for racism, right? And then you read what tops the agenda of their taxpayer paid meeting/vacation in Geneva - stopping hate speech spread via Internet. Heck, I even have a quote from El Jefe herself.

    “Where does the right of expression, which we all want to respect, stop and the need to sanction and prevent hate speech begin? What is the point in time when one right has to recognize that it cannot be exercised if it implies the violation of another one,” — UN Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Flavia Pansieri

    They are already discussing ways to curb “hate speech” on an international basis. Why make it any easier for them?

  • Clinton would subsidise child care; Trump would subsidise parenthood

    Kandy Atz to E. Pluribus Unum

    Simplify the tax code and lower the rates across the board. Making a ridiculously complicated tax code even more convoluted will help nobody, and sounds like typical election year pandering.

    Everyone should recognize the benefit of having a parent with their children as much as possible. Nobody should be rewarded or punished by politicians for making this decision.

    Americans waste far too much time and money attempting to comply with an ever expanding, and always confusing tax policy. Why make it worse? Let Americans keep more of their money (and time) and they will figure out what is best for their children without any help from DC. Liberty is an awesome thing.

  • Modesty and Beach Volleyball

    08/15/2016 10:18:22 AM PDT · 163 of 284
    Kandy Atz to Salvation

    You don’t play competitive beach volleyball in a burqa. If some religion or nation forces their women to wear 7th century attire, let the world see the glaring contrast between a free nation, where the athletes decide what works best, and a nation/religion that does not embrace Liberty, and prefers bondage.

    Here’s Why the USA Women’s Volleyball Team Refuses to Stop Wearing Bikinis

    One can see women as sexual objects no matter what they wear. Lust is lust. Is the volleyball attire any more immodest than what the swimmers and gymnasts wear? Not if you haven’t crucified the flesh. How many perverts tuned in to see gymnasts in tight outfits contorting their bodies? Its NOT the attire, its the people watching with the problem.

    If one is offended while looking lustfully at female athletes, it would seem some time in the Word, and on their knees might be needed. I would think preaching the Word, changing people’s hearts, might be a better use of one’s time rather than discussing proper beach attire and forcing people to change their clothes because some religious tyrant demands it.

    The real problem with the notion of modesty is that its never objective. Many Christians can see scantily clad women and just appreciate beauty. On the other hand, some religious zealot may be enraged by the site of an exposed ankle. Thankfully, we have LIBERTY in Christ, and still live in a nation clinging to what little freedom remains. We can be individually led by the Spirit, who will do far more than any religion in directing Believers to walk in Love and the Wisdom of God. We don’t need a Roman version of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice.

  • Joe Paterno Knew of Sandusky Abuse Allegations as Early as 1976, Insurance Company Claims

    05/06/2016 9:45:21 AM PDT · 50 of 55
    Kandy Atz to Buckeye McFrog

    >>>>>For a period of time in the late 80’s and early 90’s, Jerry Sandusky was the hottest coaching prospect out there. Every time a big-school head coaching job opened up, his name was near the top of the list of candidates.

    None of them ever hired him. And then he retired in his mid-50’s, which is awfully young for a football coach. Tells me a lot of people knew.<<<<<

    I have always thought this as well. Protecting dear old Penn State, and the self righteous prick Paterno, was way more important than those kids. This is why I thought the NCAA should have shut the program down for two years to wash away the filth, and give a wake up call to everyone in “Happy Valley” that football is NOT more important than the safety of children.

    I think more than a few people were aware of what was happening, and the timeline certainly suggests that this was the case. Sandusky was already involved with at risk kids in the 70s. I wonder how many victims never came forward?

    Here is Paterno in 1987:

    Paterno has plenty to say on a variety of topics.

    —SMU: “It’s unbelievable to think that kind of corruption came right from the top of the power structure. The NCAA did what it had to do” in canceling SMU’s 1988 football season. (Molesting children and covering it up at the highest levels, versus paying players like virtually every school in the 80s - unbelievable corruption is accurate.)

    Dennis Booher, as a Penn State graduate student in 1985, profiled Paterno for his doctoral degree in physical education. It took him two years and 100 interviews. He wrote:

    “Joe Paterno is much like a corporate executive operating a large business. He makes decisions based on what’s best for the business, not necessarily the individual. He ... demands total accountability in academics and athletics.... There is no room for the lazy or the weak.”

    (What’s best for the business - that is exactly why they never addressed the issue until forced to deal with it.)

    Kandy Atz to grania
    Cruz didn't get a majority in his home state. In OH, Cruz was a weak third. So, yeah, it's significant.

    There were 14 people on the Texas GOP ballot when early voting began, 5 still in the race on election day. Cruz beat Trump by almost 500,000 votes. Setting aside Ted's 1.2 million, more people voted against Trump than for him - and this is in one of the most Conservative states in the country.

    NOBODY expected Cruz to win in NY. It is one of the most progressive states in the country. Congratulations to Trump for winning his home state. Both Bernie, a socialist, and Hillary, a criminal, received more votes than Trump. That tells you much about New York.

    John Kasich is the sitting governor of Ohio. Almost 1 million voted for him over Trump and Cruz, even though he has no chance to be the nominee. That tells you that this primary is far from over.

  • TMZ: Unreleased video convinced prosecutors to forego charges against Lewandowski

    Kandy Atz to Arthur McGowan

    No, she did not say he knocked her down. And if you click on the youtube link I posted, he is clearly seen reaching for her, having to stretch around the SS agent, and pulling her back - you can see her body twisting. The next frame she is six feet back from Trump. Then you see Ben Terris from the Washington Post confront Lewandowski.

    Terris was watching Lewandowski, waiting to interview him, and confirmed that it was Lewandowski who grabbed her. The discussion between Terris and Fields is recorded the moment after contact.

    Again, the incident itself is far less important than the Trump campaign’s response. THAT is what is most troubling. It reminds me very much of the way the Clinton mob treated anyone who stood in Bill’s way to the White House.

    Good summary of events the first few days.

    Kandy Atz to Arthur McGowan

    Yes, the little punk grabbed her. Please don’t play the Trump game and deny that he ever touched her or knew her. That crap is getting old. Accept responsibility, apologize, and move on - that is what men of character would do.

    There was no need for a CAMPAIGN MANAGER to grab her by the arm and pull her backwards. The SS was there precisely for security. ITS THEIR FREAKIN’ JOB to react if there was any threat, perceived or real, or if she was too close for comfort.

    Its laughable the way people are acting like this campaign manager hothead is some Rambo-ski coming to save the day from this petite reporter simply asking questions.

    Please do not interpret my posts as support for Fields. Both sides unnecessarily escalated this at best, incident.

    From the video below, there is what looks like an SS agent directly behind her. Lewandowski goes out of his way to grab her and pull her back. Why? Was she a threat? Did he not like her question? Does he not like her? If she was a threat, the SS agent was in a far better position to see it, and neutralize the threat. It seems odd that she was the only reporter singled out for the Lewandowski treatment. Had the SS agent done the same thing, I wouldn’t be commenting because THAT IS THEIR JOB.

    At the 1 second mark it appears Trump is looking at her and listening to her question. Trump looks down and here comes Lewandowski to save the day. My assumption is that he didn’t like the question about affirmative action so he separated her before Trump could answer.

    >> Hope Hicks, a spokeswoman for the Trump campaign, told the Erik Wemple Blog: “As we said from the beginning, Corey Lewandowski was not involved. We are vindicated and we look forward to receiving an apology from your publication and your reporter, Ben Terris.” <<

    >>> Yet the video CLEARLY shows, and the eyewitnesses confirmed, that Lewandowski WAS involved. Why was the campaign lying? Take responsibility, apologize and move on. But they weren’t finished. They needed to intimidate and destroy Fields.

    The incident itself was nothing more than an unfortunate altercation. If the little punk does this often however, maybe he might need anger management, or needs to pick another, less “dangerous” line of work, where there is no need to manhandle women.

    What is really revealing is the attitude on this thread, and within the Trump campaign, and especially with Trump himself, that the first thing is to lie, then attack the character of the accuser, and then unleash your henchman to intimidate her. That’s very Clintonesque.

    Trumps manager should not have had to have done that, the SS should have.

    Absolutely. He is a campaign manager, not a bouncer. If SS thought she was a threat, they should have taken control of the situation. There was no need for him to be involved, or so rough with Fields.

    And had he simply privately apologized for his overreaction, we likely would have never heard about this incident.

    Way too much drama from both sides.

    Until Cruz won a primary in mean-as-a-snake Wisconsin, he hadn't won a single primary -- i.e., an "election" -- outside of his home state, a sister state and a state where Trump didn't campaign. In fact, until cantankerous Wisconsin, the only primary where Cruz managed to surpass 34 percent of the vote was his home state of Texas -- where he got 43.8 percent.

    Has Ann gone bat guano crazy? So states that don't allow Democrats to select the GOP candidate are somehow evil? And they adopted rules to help ... Ted Cruz? He must be really amazing to anticipate exactly where the campaign would be a year in advance and then fly all over the country in time to change the rules so that they would work perfectly just for him right at this moment. What an amazing candidate!

    Instead of attacking Ted Cruz for playing by the rules, she should be complaining about the dysfunctional Trump campaign. He has virtually no ground game, and sometimes doesn't even know when to show up - see his latest Washington state fiasco. Is this a serious campaign for POTUS, or just another reality TV show Ann?

    Trump has NEVER topped 50% in any state. His best performance 49.31 was in THE MOST PROGRESSIVE STATE ON THE PLANET, politically just to the left of North Korea. Yep, that Trump fella is a force to be reckoned with. He's unstoppable. I promise you what people in Taxachusetts want in a President is WILDLY different from most Americans, especially Christians and Conservatives. BTW - Has Cruz whined and complained about the Hawaii, Minnesota, Nevada, or Kentucky caucuses? I wonder why not? Now that the field is narrowed and Conservatives aren't splitting their votes 3-5 ways, it will get much harder for Trump to win any state, except his mind-numbed progressive friends in the Northeast. Enjoy that lead while you have it, and oh by the way, have Trump read the rules.

    Speaking of Texas, there were 14 people on the ballot when early voting began, and a massive influx of DNC voters/rent-a-Trump-mob types in the open primary. Even with all those advantages, Cruz still beat Trump by almost 500,000 votes. Setting aside the votes for Cruz, in the MOST RELIABLY CONSERVATIVE STATE IN THE UNION, more people voted AGAINST the progressive reality tv star than for him - (837,154 to 757,489). Don't know how one spins that as a negative for Cruz, but its certainly NOT a positive for Trump moving forward.

    The primary system in recent years has given us 2 progressives - McCain, Romney, and now a hard core NYC values big government progressive - Trump, is leading. After watching far too many Democrats vote in the GOP primary in Texas, I'm leaning more towards a caucus or closed primary in the future. The GOP cannot allow progressives, especially Democrat crossovers to have so much influence over our nominee. Ann may be happy nominating Obama-lite and Hillary-lite, but its the fastest way to kill turnout among Conservatives and Christians, and is disastrous for local and state races down the ticket. They are terrified at the prospect of Trump at the top of the ticket. What a nightmare that would be, even in reliably Conservative districts/counties/states.

    Destroying the party has been his goal along. That is what he is being paid to do by his friends the Clintons. Why do you think him and Bill had that two hour phone call just before he announced? He’s been running as the perfect example of what Hollywood/NPR/NYT Liberals think all conservatives are. Bigoted, misogynistic, xenophobic, loud, boorish and vulgar. If they could just find a trailer park living, tube top wearing relative somewhere it would be the perfect parody.

    I have been saying variations of this as well. I am so glad so many others recognize this truth. Along these same lines, I believe Cruz made a rather astute observation at the Wisconsin town hall regarding Trump's answers to various questions on issues like abortion. He answers the way he THINKS Conservatives would answer. At times, his responses seem reasonable, but more often than not, they sound like they are written for an SNL skit mocking Conservatives. There is no deep thinking on the ethical, moral, Constitutional, or even Spiritual reasons why murdering babies is wrong. No. Trump's knee-jerk response is that society should punish women who have abortions. Is this a well thought out, reasonable, or even conservative approach? Or is it because that is what HE THINKS Conservatives want to hear? Same thing with the wall, immigration, trade, any issue. His answers are rarely founded on Constitutional principles, Christian morality, or even Conservative values.

    >>>>This leads to the last misunderstanding about the scriptures. It is not the Bible alone that serves as the basis for our faith; rather, the Bible is only at home within the Church, with its long apostolic tradition, a tradition of authoritative interpretation that can be traced to Jesus himself. In the Acts of the Apostles, the Ethiopian eunuch could not understand the scriptures until Phillip—an apostle, charged with authority by Christ—interpreted them for him.<<<<

    #1 - The Eunuch was spiritually dead. The Word is spiritually discerned. This was God’s Grace in action for a sincere seeker of His Truth, so that he might be saved - God will pour water on thirsty ground (Isaiah 44:3). NOTE - Philip did NOT stay with him after he was baptized. The eunuch continued on with the Word (OT) that he had, while Philip was translated to another place to continue preaching the Gospel. Philip leading the eunuch to Christ is not a model for spiritual growth of a Believer who is - to desire the sincere milk of the WORD that you may grow. (1 Peter 2:2) Jesus encouraged the little children to come to HIM, not to organized religion. And the Kingdom of God must be received like a little child. (Matthew 18:3, 19:14, Mark 10:15, Luke 18:17) Meditate on those verses for a time. Paul writes to the Corinthian assembly that they needed milk and not solid food because they were not spiritual. He did not teach them human wisdom, but instead God’s Word. (1 Corinthians 2 & 3) It is the entrance of the Word that gives Light, even to the simple. (Psalm 119:130)

    #2 - It is the “long apostolic tradition” which gave the world some of the darkest centuries of Christendom, with persecution, torture, and murder of those who dared to disagree with the state religion. It gave us Bible bans, and burnings, keeping the Word out of the hands of Believers. It was for similar religious traditions and hypocrisy that Jesus condemned the religious leaders of his time - “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.” (Matthew 23) Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men... (Matthew 15, Mark 7)

    #3 - What did Paul tell Timothy - “Preach the Word.” He wrote the Corinthians that they, “preach the Word of God with sincerity and with Christ’s authority.” And to the Roman assembly that the “Word is first in your mouth and then in your heart - the Word of faith we preach.” Throughout the time of Acts they “preached the Word to the Jews first, and then the Gentiles.” Its the Word that transforms lives, not religious tradition. Jesus gave us the Father’s Word, not ceremonies and traditions. (John 17) And after Paul received the Revelation of the Mystery, it was the Truth that by Grace we are saved by faith, Blessed with all Spiritual Blessings and seated in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus! You cannot know this Truth except by hearing the Word. (Ephesians 1 - 3) Too many religious folks have never received this wonderful Revelation.

    #4 - Romans 10:17 - So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the Word of Christ. If you claim that, “It is not the Bible alone that serves as the basis for our faith.” You are contradicting God’s Word. No one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ, the Living Word. He is the author and finisher of our faith! (Isaiah 28:16, 1 Corinthians 3:11, Hebrews 12:2, 1 Peter 2) The Word is the incorruptible Seed with which we are Born Again! (1 Peter 1:18-25) It is the God-breathed Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 3:14-17) What more could religion, religious reasoning, or their traditions add to that?

    #5 - How did Jesus stop satanic temptation - “It is written...” How did he counter religious ignorance, “It is written...” How did he deflect religious attacks, “It is written...” How did he answer religious inquiries, “It is written...” It seems there might be a pattern. Maybe one day the theologians will figure it all out and explain it to the rest of us.

    We are mightily blessed to live in a time of freedom, where the Word is readily available in a multitude of formats and languages. Technology has made it possible to search the Bible in ways that no theologian even 100 years ago could have ever imagined. There is no excuse for not daily digging into God’s Word and letting His Truth speak directly to you.

    “...this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.” — Matthew 16:17

    Its just so sad to imagine so many people walking in such darkness, when the Light is so readily available and waiting to be enjoyed.

    >>>>If Joseph had other older children, why didn’t they go with him and Mary to the mandatory census in Bethlehem?<<<<

    >>>>They were of age, or married (they married very young in those days) lived in another place, whatever.<<<<

    Any older kids would have claim to the throne of David and would invalidate Jesus’ rightful claim to the throne, and title - King of the Jews. The regal line united in both Joseph and Mary, and then to Jesus, their firstborn according to the flesh. Any religious tradition of Joseph having kids from a prior marriage would undermine God’s Word.

    >>>The Trump zombies descend.
    How has this odd carnival huckster managed to hypnotize so many people?
    Years of practice scamming people out of their money in various schemes, I guess.
    It’s the weirdest phenomena ever. He’s not attractive. He’s not well-spoken. His platform consists of broad generalities with no substance.
    When have we seen something like this? Barack Obama, one can understand. First Black president ... got ALL the black vote and most of the liberal vote. <<<

    You hit the nail on the Head. I keep waiting for people to start fainting when the Oompa Loompa speaks.

    People have been dumbed down watching reality TV, therefore having a reality tv star as a candidate sort of makes sense.
