    In your typical Third-World megalopolis, basic city functions fall into disrepair, while once-eradicated diseases run rampant -- and the local bigwig boasts about saving the world.Los Angeles is quickly becoming a typical Third-World megalopolis, and the rest of the state isn't far behind.Yesterday the New York Post reported "rats running everywhere among piles of decaying garbage," in a "sprawling 50-block area that is believed to be the base for around 4,200 homeless people."Local columnist Steve Lopez called his city a "giant trash receptacle" and asked, "Did someone turn back the calendar a few hundred years?” No, Steve, the city...

    Pope Francis: Church Must Learn to Abandon Old ‘Traditions’ It is a mistake for the Church to try to hold onto old traditions or to have clear answers for everything, Pope Francis said Thursday. Jesus intentionally omitted telling his disciples many things so that the Church would learn to renounce the desire for clarity and order, the pope told participants in the 21st general assembly of Caritas Internationalis, the Church’s global charitable outreach.

    "When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you - you know your nation is doomed." --Ayn Rand Being sick at heart is a terrible thing to be when it is every day, day after day. I am sick at heart watching my country descend into a sort of hellish, and mindless agitation and turmoil. I’m asked to watch and comment on the millions of fellow Americans buying into this mindset of endless tribal wars instigated by those no better than vipers whispering into their ears that America is no longer worthy of...

    October 26, 2018, (LifeSiteNews) – Apple CEO, Tim Cook, said in a CNN interview this week that being gay “is God’s greatest gift to me.” While mainstream and gay media are greeting Cook’s statement as breaking news, the Apple CEO made precisely the same declaration exactly four years ago when he penned a ‘coming out’ article for Bloomberg Technology on October 30, 2014, saying: So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.Steering away from controversy, Cook avoided answering interviewer Christiane Amanpour’s question about the level...

    As Hillary Clinton makes the rounds to sell her book on any television program or venue that will have her, it becomes clearer and clearer that by electing Donald Trump, the country saved itself from certain disaster. So, why is no one saying what is patently obvious? Mrs. Clinton is a classic narcissist. She has narcissistic personality disorder. ThereÂ’s a reason narcissists donÂ’t learn from mistakes and thatÂ’s because they never get past the first step which is admitting that they made one. ItÂ’s always an assistantÂ’s fault, an adviserÂ’s fault, a lawyerÂ’s fault. Ask them to account for a...
  • 2020s To Be A Decade of Disorder For Oil

    The 2020s could be a “decade of disorder” for the oil markets as the lack of drilling today leads to a shortfall of supply. Demand will continue to grow, year after year, and shale will not be able to keep up. It may be hard to envision today, with an oil market suffering from low prices and a glut of supply. Falling breakeven prices have drillers still churning out huge volumes of shale oil, with production in the U.S. already rebounding and rising on a weekly basis. The tidal wave of shale, however, is the direct result of extreme market...

Vincent McGrath, a 56-year-old retiree and Hillary Clinton supporter, was sitting on top of a Camaro convertible holding "Blue Lives Matter" and Clinton signs. Several protesters went right up to him, middle fingers extended, and hurled insults. "Get a job," McGrath responded... A Philadelphia police officer on the scene, and one of the protesters' legal advisers, both said at least four arrests had been made by nearly 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, though the Philadelphia...

    Yesterday we discussed the new disorder plaguing white middle class Americans: Empathy Deficit Disorder (EDD). Today I thought I would pursue one of the root causes: Snowflake Syndrome (ϟϟ). The latest outbreak of ϟϟ - at Seattle University, Matteo Ricci College School of Humanities - has been documented by the Daily Caller and, as the saying goes, requires a special kind of stupid. A brief summary: students at the Matteo Ricci School of Humanities took over the Dean’s office and demanded that the Dean be fired and all of their demands (which are ample) be met. Chief among their demands is an order...

    For most people becoming blind would be a living nightmare - but for Jewel Shuping it was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. Jewel has Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), a condition in which able-bodied people believe they are meant to be disabled. Her need to lose her sight was so strong that in 2006 she decided to blind herself - by having a sympathetic psychologist pour DRAIN CLEANER into her eyes. According to Jewel, her fascination with blindness began early in childhood. She said: "When I was young my mother would find me walking in the halls at night,...

    The former psychiatrist in chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital is pouring rain on the Bruce Jenner “Call Me Caitlyn” parade that’s sure to have the former Olympic athlete’s cheerleaders steaming. Not only does Dr. Paul R. McHugh consider changing sexes “biologically impossible,” he thinks being what is popularly called “transgender” these days is actually a “mental disorder.” McHugh, who has authored six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical journal articles, made the statements in a piece he penned for the Wall Street Journal that argued surgery is not the solution for patients who want to live life as the...

    Pope Francis has admitted that he has "some nerve problems" which require treatment as well as various neuroses. See here. A neuroses is defined as, "A relatively mild mental illness that is not caused by organic disease, involving symptoms of stress such as depression, anxiety, obsessive behavior and hypochondria." Now, I would never make light of another person's mental illness or disorder. There but for the grace of God go I as Saint Philip Neri once said. I have been through exhaustive psychological exams and screenings both for the United States Air Force (to obtain a security clearance above top...

    Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) contended that claims that police brutality protesters chanted "we want dead cops" are "a slander against Black people." This is despite video and audio evidence that appears to verify the claim. "To my ears, these protesters are saying 'we want dread cops,'" Rangel maintained. "Some of us may not have the strongest skills with the English language or be very good with our elocution, but in my heart I can't believe that my people would call for bloodshed." In Rangel's view it makes more sense that the demonstrators were calling for "dread cops, because dreads are...

    American society is currently in a dysfunctional state, and like all things dysfunctional, it will implode if not addressed very soon. We live in a world that contains a vast amount of knowledge, but little understanding. The United States has not experienced extreme tyranny, but it is headed in that direction. The shift of authority from private sector to public sector has created a serious imbalance. As a country, there is great arrogance. We take for granted that we will always be the land of the free. Like all civilizations prior, we’re moving from liberty to totalitarianism and it’s...

    Gene Robinson, recognized as the first openly gay bishop in a major Protestant denomination, has called on Pope Francis to change the Roman Catholic Church's official doctrine that defines homosexuality as a disorder, arguing that such a teaching is "the basis for discrimination, rejection and violence the world over." The Vatican has repeatedly said that Pope Francis is not seeking to make doctrine changes, however. "If Pope Francis is to be believed in all the kindly pronouncements of his first year (and I do), his good tone should be followed by the tough work of changing the systems of belief,...

    Head teacher removes minister from post at Glasgow Gaelic School after Facebook commentsA Church of Scotland minister has been removed from his post as chaplain of a Gaelic school after describing homosexuality as a "perversion" and a “disorder”. The Rev Donald MacInnes made the comments on a Facebook page seen by some parents of pupils at the Glasgow Gaelic School. They complained to the city council over the remarks, with one describing them as “absolutely disgraceful”. Mr MacInnes made the comments while criticising the Scottish Government's plans to legalise same-sex marriage. He said: "The overwhelming support of our Scottish politicians...

You pick out a defenseless person on the street and you try to knock them out.</p> <p>In most areas, it is known as “the knockout game”. In some communities it is called by other names such as “point-em-out, knock-em-out” and “polar bear hunting”. In many instances, the perpetrators don’t even try to steal anything from the people that they knock out. The goal is just to “have fun” by brutally attacking an innocent victim.</p>

    Every discussion of gay marriage should begin with a recognition of its historical radicalness, its exceptionality. Heterosexual marriage has been the fundamental unit of human sociability for thousands of years, a common thread running through otherwise disjunctive cultures and wide-ranging ethnic diversity. Wherever one lands on the issue of same-sex marriage, there can be no gainsaying its extraordinariness. It’s also clear that same-sex marriage is a culmination of a long-brewing development, an unspooling of essential modern premises. The relentless logic of modernity is unrestrained individuality, the lonesome sovereignty of the singular person. The pith of matrimony is natural gregariousness, our...

    With a diminished team at State, Defense, and the CIA, Obama can be Obama. John Brennan, Chuck Hagel, and John Kerry will be confirmed. The three will provide a force-multiplying effect on the Obama foreign policy of disengagement. The chameleon Brennan will be very different from David Petraeus at the CIA; Hagel is no circumspect Leon Panetta; and there was a reason why the appointment of Hillary Clinton as secretary of state was greeted with praise in a way John Kerry’s will not be. The trio is less competent than their predecessors, but also perhaps more representative of a country...

It would do every citizen good to read Dr. King’s entire 1963 “I Have a...
