  • Codevilla on the Death of Political Reason

    The Claremont Institute ^ | October 24, 2016 | Angelo M. Codevilla
    The Ever Shallower Atlantic he Republic of 1776-89 is likely dead, I recently wrote, because government in America is increasingly uni-partisan, unchecked, and unaccountable. Those who oppose the ends it pursues and the means it employs have lost patience, and are demanding even more forceful government on their behalf. In short, all sides have abandoned restraint. Every new executive order, judicial decision, agency rule or policy, every successive imposition or insult by the well-connected and -protected, unlocks their targets’ theretofore repressed desires to “get back at the bastards.” As resentment breeds greater resentment, reviving the Republic grows even more improbable....

    It took 200 years for the Roman Empire to fall. It appears to have taken the Constitutional Republic of The United States of America only 60 years, but still counting. What we see now is the fruit of decades of Marxist/Liberal infiltration and influences within the vital social, governmental, media, and cultural institutions of the America we have known. Their purpose: To radically change, or destroy, the Constitution, the government institutions and systems flowing from it. By so separating the Constitution from our national life, they degrade our traditional culture and values of Judaeo-Christianity that underpin the Constitution and stand...

    WWII patrol-torpedo (PT) boats were a perfect naval expression of the American Spirit at war. Today, just four of these combat-veteran PT boats still exist in the United States. PT-305 is the only one that is fully restored. Now, after a $3.3 million restoration effort and more than 100,000 hours of work by a dedicated corps of over 200 volunteers, PT-305 is ready to hit the water.

    "A major development today in the ongoing saga to save the SS United States from a trip the scrapyard. Los Angeles-based Crystal Cruises says it has signed a purchase option for the historic – yet weathered – transatlantic steam ship and plans to refurbish the vessel and return it to oceangoing service as a modern luxury cruise ship. The announcement was made Thursday by Crystal Cruises together with the SS United States Conservancy preservation group at a press conference at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal in New York City."

  • Delta tunnels: Major changes to environmental restoration could endanger Brown's water plan

    04/11/2015 7:59:59 PM PDT · by NormsRevenge · 30 replies ^ | 4/11/15 | Paul Rogers - Mercury New
    Gov. Jerry Brown has billed his $25 billion plan to build two massive tunnels under the Delta as a way to not just make it easier to move water from north to south, but also increase the reliability of water supplies and bring back salmon and other endangered species. But now the Brown administration is proposing a major and politically risky change: dropping a 50-year guarantee to restore the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta's environment. A centerpiece of the project, the environmental plan included $8 billion to preserve 100,000 acres of wetlands and dozens of other restoration efforts. The dramatic course...

    Why so many conservatives have nostalgia for an era that wasn't all that golden. Next January, just in time for a potential presidential bid, Marco Rubio will publish a book. It’s called American Dreams: Restoring Economic Opportunity for Everyone.Call me a killjoy, but I don’t think Senator Rubio can make good on his subtitle. Creating “economic opportunity for everyone” is hard enough in a country of 316 million. Restoring it is a metaphysical impossibility. To restore something, it must have existed before. And never in its history has America offered “economic opportunity for everyone,” not even in the Edenic days...

    Saqqara, in Egypt, is the oldest stone complex ever built by humans—and within it sits the oldest pyramid in Egypt. It’s a piece of irreplaceable history that’s been crumbling for 4,600 years. But according to one local report, it’s currently being destroyed by the company hired to “restore” it. In fact, the company hired by Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities may have even committed a crime in its restoration. According to the Egypt Independent, preservation laws require that any new construction be less than 5 percent of the preserved structure. Instead, the company—which has reportedly never worked on a preservation project...

    On the possibility of a forthcoming political revolution.The United States has been shaped by three far-reaching political revolutions: Thomas Jefferson’s “revolution of 1800,” the Civil War, and the New Deal. Each of these upheavals concluded with lasting institutional and cultural adjustments that set the stage for new phases of political and economic development. Are we on the verge of a new upheaval, a “fourth revolution” that will reshape U.S. politics for decades to come? There are signs to suggest that we are. In fact, we may already be in the early stages of this twenty-first-century revolution.The great recession that began...

    ...Where did the word "Mormon" come from? Have you assumed that it came from the Book of Mormon? Anton LaVey's Satanic Bible has a list of "Infernal Names." Guess what one of them is? "Mormo." Mormo is the god of the ghouls, an evil being obsessed with the dead. What would the names of his followers be? "Mormons?" Is this just a coincidence? "In Chinese, "Mormon" means "gates of hell." That's why the Mormon missionaries have problems in Hong Kong, for instance. They have to avoid using the word "Mormon" in trying to convert the Chinese." Is this really just...

Work has already begun on the Bernini columns and soon they will be restored in all of their original color and brilliance; as one of the most important Baroque symbols, famous not only in architecture and urban planning – as a space dedicated to public religious ceremonies – but also as highly allegorical artistic representation of an ecumenical embrace of the universal Church to all people. The immense construction site aims to restore all of the...

    The German Tiger I was the most feared battle tank of the Second World War. Its invincibility lay in its main gun and heavy defensive armour. Using the successful Haynes Manual format, the Tiger Tank Manual gives an insight into acquiring, owning and operating one of these awesome fighting vehicles. The Tank Museum's Tiger '131' forms the centrepiece of this manual, which includes full photographic coverage of the strip-down of '131' and its engine. Vivid personal recollections describe what it was like to command a Tiger in war.

    No. 257, November, 1915, Vol. XXI., No. 11., pp. 124-125. The last fourteen chapters (35-48) of Ezekiel contains such clear and concise prophecies concerning the restoration, conflicts, conversion, and establishment of Israel in their own land, on their own soil, that, were there no other testimony in the Word (and we have produced abundance), we venture to assert that no one, except by the most flagrant system of spiritualization, could deny that such restoration either had taken place, or must be relegated to the future. And that it is to the future we must look for the fulfillment is certain,...

We come now in chronological order to the Book of the prophet Joel, which we regard as one continuous prophecy, and claim the entire prophecy as a prediction of events to be accomplished after a coming restoration of the Jews. Joel's prophecy is undated. It seems clear, however, that as Hosea was appointed prophet especially for the ten tribes of Israel, so Joel exercised that sacred office for Judah and Benjamin. The unity of the book as a whole is so evident that there is no need...

    In his third featured interview this year, former megachurch pastor Ted Haggard asks why it is so hard for the Church to live out its teachings on forgiveness and restoration, noting that the secular world is doing a better job at this than Christians. "The differentiation between the Church and everybody else is that we should respond with restoration, healing, hope to people's sin condition, our sin condition. We're losing that right now," he argues in a new video interview with Lifetree Café, a Christian-based network of local discussion groups.

Here, after stating that Israel is not His people, God promises a future great increase of the nation, "yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea," in which we see a direct reference to the natural seed, for it will be remembered that the Almighty promised Abraham a double line of descendents, a natural seed is represented by the sand of the sea, and a spiritual seed represented...

    Today is September 12th, 9-12, and after the infamous day nine years ago, many looked to the following day, this day, symbolically as a call to action – 9-11 being the wake-up call. Initially of course it wasn’t seen as that, people dwelling on the carnage and the anger as well as seeking some answers. In looking for answers, people began to see the larger perspectives and realized that we’d been living fairly insulated lives with an adolescent kind of belief that we’re invincible, blithely apathetic and ignorant to what has been occurring in our nation, let alone in the...

    Ratzinger-Schülerkreis Discusses the Outcome of the Second Vatican Council Editor: the Zenit article doesn't mention Cardinal Schönborn's participation, although the following article does. It will be interesting to discover what Cardinal Koch's paper discloses and how it is received. It would be interesting as well to know what, if any, bearing the current talks with the SSPX have on the talks. Castel Ganndolfo: Archbishop Kurt Koch will speak as the main contributor about the Second Vatican Council and the Liturgical Reform -- even Cardinal Schönborn will take part.

    This freep is still dazed, as he attended all 5 days of the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion which just finished. A key part of that is the Concours d'Elegance --the biggest and most fancy in all the world. My photos are from all over the different recent gatherings on the Peninsula; the YouTube slide music video link below represents about 2% or so of my photos; I took over 2,000 of them..! I might make another couple videos in the near future after I get over my sunburn and get some rest. I'll just lay down some track and blast...

    Even with religious freedom and the birth of a new nation, the Restoration of the gospel was still an uphill battle. Only with a divinely orchestrated plan and precise timing was a space carved out for the young Mormon church to grow. That was the thesis of a phone conversation with John C. Thomas, who teaches LDS Church history and other subjects in the Department of Religious Education at BYU-Idaho… "I don't know if we (the church) survived by the skin of our teeth, but it was a tough go," Thomas said. "It's remarkable that you had to bring a...
