Phony Comaraderie

This morning's email brought the following solicitation.



Hey Pascal,

I wanted to check in to see if you'll be able to contribute towards Heritage's million dollar goal by the December 31 deadline.

Blah, blah, blah, blah.

Blah, blah.

Blah, blah, and blah.
All my best,

Christie Fogarty
Director of Membership
The Heritage Foundation

P.S. The Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so your gift by December 31 is tax-deductible.

Hey Christie (if that's your real name),

Your "Hey Pascal" greeting is the kind that I receive from buddies with whom I email back and forth regularly.

Am I now one of your buddy correspondents that this greeting seems appropriate?

It's been my experience that emails of this sort come from a mass mailing, and that yours is a one way email address that accepts no incoming
Bottom line: it's a waste of any recipient's time to respond to them as they would with any of their  buddies.

So, next time, don't even consider greeting me with you condescending "Hey" at the least. 
In fact, you may address me as Mr. Fervor. Make some attempt to begin on the right foot.

More Layers

A couple of days ago complained how Even Bright People Can't or Won't See Layers.

Today let's demonstrate how clever schemers make use of this defect.

Orwellian America

When I read this headline at,

Jeb Bush: GOP Doesn't Need Conservatives to Win 2016, Should Not Defund Exec Amnesty,

the words from Orwell's 1984 came to mind; a dire threat to the every man.  
O'Brien: If you want a vision of the future, Winston, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.
It occurs to me: surely that's an overreaction. But is it really?

Even Bright People Can't or Won't See Layers

When Dem senator Charles Schumer came out the other day against Obamacare, a friend of mine called excitedly to tell me of the news. It delighted him that the Dems were splitting.

I tried to convince him that Schumer is a long time hack, but quite shrewd in his manipulation of the news. (In that he always has been helped and never hindered by the SSM. That made it easier and, so, makes him look smarter than he really is.)

My friend just would not see it as that.

Then backing up my suspicions this piece came to my attention today.

Second Take: Schumer's Merely Attempting a Trial Balloon Tactic of Distancing Democrats From Obamacare, While Continuing to Support and Defend It
I thought the Schumer statement -- in which he criticized Obama for pushing Obamacare in 2010, instead of addressing the needs of the And The Middle Class -- was important.

But now I think it's just so much positioning. With Elizabeth Warren now endorsing his statement (!!!), it seems obvious to me that this does not represent a true schism in the Democrat Party, but rather a way to snooker the voters again, to Gruber them anew.
Bottom line: Because we don't have a truly independent press to provide us the proper cynical views about politicians, especially about Dems, and usually about GOPe, the task has fallen to the people themselves.

See the layers of the statements so you can figure out the underlying meaning. Look for and at the layers.

Sometimes it's like peeling an onion, and can make you cry. But it needs to be done.

Continuing On a Theme

That is, let's see if any of you find the following somewhat connected with yesterday's QOTD.

QOTD for Car Guys

Reflecting upon the following assessment on women by a woman
Women can be entertaining, but they’re expensive, inaccessible for most men, and from the male perspective, shockingly unreliable.
Francis W Porretto evoked an appropriate connection that you may never forget.

Well, yes, but you could say the same about Lamborghinis, and we certainly don’t stop desiring them for those trifling reasons.

Because it IS a Soviet-Style Media After All

The question -- answered by the headline above -- was asked by the man who has been tracking Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber all these years. 
Weinstein, back at home, was stunned at the reaction. Why did he keep finding Gruber gaffes? Why didn't the press glom onto this stuff first?
Yes Mr. Weinstein. A Soviet-Style media reports on only that news which allows the soviet-style government to operate with impunity; to hell with the voters it allegedly represents.

Furthermore, I recommend all read the article posted by Ace who highlighted this quote,

Meet the Guy Who's Single-Handedly Doing All of the Media's Jobs for Them

and then listen to the first 50 minutes of  Mark Levin from his show last night (11/10/14).

What is to be done about the revelations is problematic.

Any erstwhile leader who has even a plausible and not yet viable idea will indeed find many willing followers in America.

God help us. I suspect He is not getting any legitimate calls for help from the GOPe.

GOPe/Dem Coalition is STILL Steering

US over a cliff.

The elections just completed proves that a large number of Americans have had enough of the radical agenda.

The problem is that the GOP is not really a conservative party. It's an amalgam of conservatives and Progs. And the Progs are in the leadership and control the agenda. The nicest acronym used to refer to them is GOPe (Republican portion of the Establishment). Readers of this blog know I deride RINO (Republican In Name Only) and prefer SKUNC (Statist Kooks Undermining our Nation's Constitution). Whatever label you use for the GOPe, every principled conservatives has felt how it hates them.

In each and every corner of America a discussion needs to begin today. More people need to know that whatever mischief the GOPe manages to pull off in the next cycle, it is not the fault of conservatives.

The aim of that discussion is to come up with ways to divert the Establishment's steering of our republic over the cliff.

I'm an old man and I'm quickly running out of steam. If you think this idea is worth pursuing, then please comment below. I cannot contribute my assets, limited though they may be, to this effort if I don't even know you really want to try.

Remember Which Blogger Has Kept You Aware

#Ebola Czar Called Overpopulation Top Leadership Issue

What more need I say?

Maybe this.

Reread the warning under my masthead and consider bundling it with this story to those who scoff at such concerns.

Then pray that there are those near the highest levels of influence who will be reinvigorated with the holy spirit. That there remain some who still can affect changes in global policies that are not misanthropic and/or Malthusian pessimistic.

SSM Switches Gears

Here's the image of the pissed off community organizer that the SSM hid from America for six years.

Drudge headlines accompanying this image says

Sure. The SSM wants to tell those it misled all these years that it is him who is the problem and not the deadliness that is their Leftist bent.

But those of us who recognize a character who is one (rather than having any) saw something our fellow citizens didn't see.

We saw this image before it was published.

It represents the soul of this creature from long before the time he became the darling of the SSM.

And what the American soul needs most is to understand how this is also the real image for every damned SKUNC in the country.

When he has a run in with a principled conservative, this is the image John McCain hides behind his smirk.

When she has to answer to a truly God-fearing man, this is image Hillary struggles to hide.

Peel away the smiling façade and this is what every Prog in the country looks like when they encounter tax payers who have had enough of Prog rule.

Know that SSM is disclosing this image because it thinks we are stupid enough to trust it now that it is willing to show Obola as he really is.

Don't buy it for a minute.

Falsehoods In Headlines and Fundraising

Obama Craters to New Low in Poll, Democrats at Lowest Approval in 30 Years

Let me either inform you or -- in a few instances -- remind you of some relatively recent history.

A few years ago, Robert Mugabe, president of Zimbabwe, had even lower approval ratings than this. And yet he won reelection.

And Saint Jimmie Carter blessed the election process. And the Western SSM blessed it too. No election fraud worth noting. Would they lie to you?

So you believe that such headlines are hopeful? Why? Because it's much better to be hopeful than angry, and that is how manhood in America has been conditioned these last few generations. Generations have been mouthing the last lines of the National Anthem while ignoring the implications of those words.
...the land of the free and [because it is] the home of the brave.

Certainly not brave enough to put an end to voter fraud, which is likely the most fatal of all frauds to any republic.

In case this is not enough. I received an email yesterday. Allegedly from John Boehner. It was so brazen in its request for money, I momentarily thought it could be from the Democrats employing psi-op counter-measures. Except the GOPe does think so poorly of its conservative grass-roots base that believe they can still get us to send money to them rather than to individual conservative candidates.

Speaker Boehner
To Me
Oct 14 at 5:58 PM
>Governor Mitt Romney emailed you <
> Congressman Paul Ryan emailed you <
> Vice President Dick Cheney emailed you <
> Governor Tom Ridge emailed you <
Now, I'm asking for your help.

Our team at the NRCC sent me the spreadsheet of recent supporters and I don't see your name on the list. We need all of our grassroots supporters engaged in these final weeks before Election Day.

The Democrats' campaign machine is desperate and it's stepping up attacks - if we don't have the resources to respond we could come up short when votes are counted.


First of all, if the GOPe really were interested in garnering votes, they'd be sending out emails for get out the vote (GOTV) efforts. From all reports, as well as from personal experience, this is simply no longer done.

But instead, they are begging us for funds. And you know how they'll spend those funds.
  1. Largely spent buying adds that will keep the SSM quite well funded and tearing us apart with divisive stories, fictions, and mindless entertainment. 
  2. And keeping the professional election fund raisers well paid.

Secondly, we know from their own words that the GOPe, led by Boehner and McConnell, has proclaimed that they'll not fight Obamacare or anything else that is unconstitutional but well established by now. Too many moneyed interests are making money. In other words, the GOPe are conservative in precisely the negative -- don't-you dare-rock-the-boat-or-else -- sense. I for one want nothing to do with them unless rope is nearby.

So if you, like me, are a conservative in the principled, constitutional republic loving sense, then understand how they are playing on your conscience that not funding them is doing not enough.

And if you buy that, you've already bought the proverbial Brooklyn Bridge and the GOPe's disregard for your intelligence is indeed well founded. This is our alleged alternative to the radical Progs? G-d help us!

Sigh. The Prog murder of our once great republic continues apace. Pray.

NRSC, Your Money, and Lenin

IIRC, Lenin famously predicted that capitalists would sell him the rope to hang them with.

It seems the Prog NRSC thinks it can beg conservatives for money with which to campaign against the grass roots but with which it claims it will use against Democrats. Bridge in Brooklyn unneeded.

Slipping away

NRSC Breaking News

To: Me
Today at 1:52 PM

After months of predicting GOP victory, the Washington Post's statistical model now shows a 51 percent chance that the Democrats hang on.


The answer is simple – the Democrats are spending over $40 million more than the Republicans in battleground races. For weeks, our candidates have been holding on, despite a relentless barrage of negative ads – but we need your help now or it's over.

I know that times are tough, that's why we're fighting so hard to bring new leadership that will turn things around. But, if we don't rally together now – as a team – then we will lose as individuals.

Can we count on you? [followed by links to donate]
They never stop.

Every penny sent to the NRSC is fungible. They may claim to use it for one thing, but it can be put to use where the leadership thinks the money will do them the most good.

The money will be spent not "to bring new leadership" as they promise, but to defend its incumbents and even to funnel some money to Dems in order to defeat real conservatives as happened in the Mississippi primary for U.S. Senate. 

And in Kansas.  And Nebraska. And in Indiana two years ago.

If you have some money burning a hole in your pocket, better to give it to the beggars outside 7-11. They certainly would do less harm to the republic than the Prog leadership that is the NRSC.

I pray SKUNCs in both parties are visited by an Eleventh Plague.

Let me be perfectly clear on this. That prayer is an update on the Tenth Plague. What they intend to happen to decent Americans winds up boomeranging back on themselves.

Misanthropic Tactic Number 1

I'm calling this tactic number 1 of the misanthropes because their contempt for "lesser" humanity seems affirmed each time they can get some dunce to believe that large gains can come from small falsehoods. That they managed to sell a Brooklyn Bridge to the dunce at little cost and great benefit to them is only the practical goal. Proving there are so many dunces is what makes them feel best.

How better to shut down discussion of a hoax than to assert
"Even if it is a hoax, the end result must be good."
That is the message of this cartoon.
Fix it to read: 'What if it's a big hoax and we destroy liberty, lives and civilization due our gullibility?'

Retrieved from the FB page of the Watermelon project that goes by the name "The Story of Stuff."

That Story of Stuff series of videos is a complete throwback to the early Marxist anti-industrialists. The Left could never win where the middle class was benefiting by being "exploited" by all that industry. Most certainly not the generations closest to those that had escaped European and Asian tyrannies.

But now with the CAGW CACC hoax's never-ending  propaganda by the SSM and academia,  they have numbskulls (with no inkling of the despots their forebears escaped from) thinking that they own the moral high ground if only they go along with the hoax. (The morality component and how it is used is explained in my essay series Fighting the Growth of Theocracy in America.)

Indeed, one such fool posted
One of my favourite climate change cartoons! I've got it on my phone for a quick reply to any deniers who start carrying on about the matter.
as if the squelching of freedom is a small price to pay for a presumed better world. 

Here's the answer folks. Consensus built by cominterns to provide them cover for their hated rule have NEVER made a better world. The greatest advances have been achieved by individuals. Individualism is despised by collectivists.

Listen up you Prog megalomaniacs. 

The billions of murders you aim to achieve under cover of your Sustainability project will never be forgiven.  
Gene Roddenberry warned you of your fate in The Conscience of the King. Your own children will be driven to madness knowing what you began or -- G-d forbid -- completed.

SSM the Villain in Ferguson, Poll Says

Poll says? Why should anyone need a poll to know this?

Poll: Black & White Ferguson Residents Agree - Media Made Things Worse

On August 21 I posted this: How the SSM* Came to Be the Biggest Villain

If I can see it, anyone can see it. What's the matter American: gotta have a poll to see first if others will agree?

Damned cowards can't bring themselves to stick their necks out and speak the obvious -- for fear of sounding different.

Just because G-d did not strike you down for your cowardice doesn't mean He doesn't expect you to see your need to overcome it.

*SSM = Soviet-style media. This trait alone ought be enough to condemn them. In Ferguson it was so blatant that someone decided to ask the poll question. I'm sure the more moronic editors are proud of themselves when they should be fearful.

Fighting the Growth of Theocracy in America -- Part 2

I was going to follow up by adding some of the details I had removed from the draft in Part 1.  For now it should be sufficient for you to read what Og posted at Neanderpundit » The new priesthood of junk science, where he included much from that draft.

Instead I will provide you with some words that help reveal the nasty side of those seeking to establish Sustainability as this new state religion in America specifically; but ultimately all over the globe.

The alternate title for this post could be "Knowing Neither Morals, Nor What is High Ground"
Those working hard to make our society function like [Prince] Charlie's favorite slum aren't moving to their own collective farms. Instead they are transforming our society into the collective farm while pretending that their calculated destruction of our prosperity is smart and modern.
These words are from Daniel Greenfield's The Environmental Apocalypse published in April.

Five months later an anonymous convert to Sus worship felt compelled to contribute the following:
Fighting the destructive side of capitalist economies is not easy. So maybe the practices employed cause odd side-effects or don't pay as well as mining ores whose side effect is poisoning a town's water supply, but wouldn't you rather err on the side of caution for the sake of your kids and theirs when you're gone?

I'm often shocked by the attitudes conservatives have about the unknowns of global warming when they are so adamantly sure of the unknown of the afterlife. If you are good in this life with the aim of securing a place in heaven, why would you jeopardize the ability of those who come after you to have a good life when it is their turn? Whether there is a heaven or not, you will be good in the chance of going there when your time has come. Whether fossil fuels, CO2 emissions, etc. cause global warming, wouldn't you rather reduce this risk than to find out it is the cause and that you attributed to it? It seems so insignificant that people would lose money when it's weighed against your grandchildren living without food when severe droughts and lack of clean water or power sources could threaten the food supply. It seems that doubting global warming is like playing Russian roulette because the odds are in your favor, never mind that pointing a gun at your head is a stupid idea. 
This has very many incredibly off observations, so it would not be hard to fisk it merely for amusement.

For instance, since not all conservatives are religious it proves he's flat wrong about conservative certainty about afterlife.

Another example, more to the point, is how he sees caring for the environment as a liberal/conservative divide. That's a typical presumption of the indoctrinated Left. But it is over means where the divide appears. The Sus worshiper presumes any people who do not fall in line with his methods are -- when not cast as evil -- benighted at best; beneath him in understanding. His tone throughout his remonstration is bigoted: resistors are immoral by default; they can employ no reason in their defense.

That's only a small indication of the kind of danger inherent from a Sustainability state religion whose priests would help draft law. Much like Imans do with Sharia Law for IS.

Disagree only with his religion, he declares you a heretic.

Give him influence over laws, he makes you an outlaw.

Here is my response to anonymous, published on the same day his comment appeared. He was probably a troll as he did not respond.
"Whether fossil fuels, CO2 emissions, etc. cause global warming, wouldn't you rather reduce this risk than to find out it is the cause and that you attributed [sic] to it? "
Your argument relies too much on the Precautionary Principle. Using it, you have chosen fear of shortages as your religion. As such, you see it trumping all other considerations, including the most essential of America's promises to its posterity: defending individual liberties.

Not that you'd acknowledge it, but conservatives and libertarians wish to protect individuals from all religious zealots, including such as yourself who "knows" what's good for everyone else and their posterity.

Yours is a throwback to tyrannies that had all the rest of humanity in servitude of one form or another as symbolized by the broken chains at the feet of the Statue of Liberty.

Indeed, your fears of shortages are even more primitive than that. It's tied to ancient human sacrificing Pagan religions, the successful rebellion from which was endowed by  the Judeo-Christian ethos which your priests wish to eliminate and supplant.

Your views are uninformed because those who taught you your dogma need you to stay ignorant.

No poor anonymous: yours is NOT the moral high ground your priests pretend to stand upon. You are speaking from the pit of despair that Daniel, above, says that they've convinced you to accept for you and yours. And the actions you promote would throw the whole world back into chains so as to keep you company.

Do yourself the favor and break the chains on your mind before you find yourself thrown in the new gulags by those who trained you to be their useful idiot.

The Best Indeed

 I received the following cartoon in an email that reflected the cartoon's compliment to itself.

I fear my correspondent did not realize how true this may be. That is not because of the words of Constitutional delegate number 1, but because of the implied comments of delegates 2 and 3. Here are the summations of their words.

First Constitutional Convention delegate:
"I keep thinking we should include something in the Constitution in case the people elect a fucking moron."
Second delegate:
"By then, sir, it will be too late.
Even the most astute commentators will constantly resort to vulgar participles to make their points."

Third delegate:
"Even worse than that sir.
The people will never, ever ascribe malice to ills when they may project their own stupidity on the miscreants. Their re-enslavement will feel better that way."

Fighting the Growth of Theocracy in America -- Part 1

There are two fitting alternate titles for this topic.

1. Fighting the Establishment of a State Religion in America. 

It is important to this discussion that individuals who might be subjugated by such an influence established in law understand the wider definition of religion. Religion requires no supernatural supreme entity for its existence:
Religion: a pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance.
As will be discussed later, the new religion of the time is the supreme need of preventing world catastrophes such as CAGW er CACC. And pursuing what is known as Sustainability.

But first, let us examine the opponents of existing legitimate and currently peace-loving religions: militant atheists and anti-theists.

While extreme atheists and anti-theists are well known for haranguing those who think of themselves as theists, and even those who merely are tolerant of theists, they never utter a word about pursuits or interests of supreme importance to other groups that are used to drive the growth of government.

Indeed, one of the most visible of these anti-theists, the late Christopher Hitchens, was an admitted communist. Funny -- isn't it? -- how a media-renown and eloquent man such as Hitchens never acknowledged how his views on a "just" society constituted a religion for him.

Ah, but so it goes with all supermen who bemoan the obstacle of individualists. It must be upsetting for them to watch "lesser" men "foolishly" seek guidance from concepts outside themselves rather than accept guidance from men who know themselves to be superior.

Establishing a state religion, where heretics may be punished by law, surely seems like the kind of  solution of which supermen would approve for ruling the hoi polloi.

And just as surely, this is what America's founding generation was trying to prevent when they added the 1st Amendment to the constitution.

2. Our Need to Reclaim the Age of Reason from Scientism

Scientism: Belief that science has all the answers. Once a favored theory is accepted it is treated as if it were sacred. Any who disagree are to be stripped of their science credentials and cast out.

Scientism provides a wonderful tactic, when promulgated by a soviet-style media and Leftist bent academics, to move forward with unpopular policies "in the pursuit of truth as proven by science."

Of course no part of this charade is remotely scientific. Its purpose is to bestow the prestige of the science label on rationales for unpopular or unconstitutional government policies while simultaneously scaring most critics into silence and marginalizing the rest. When critics persist, then out comes an enforcement arm that seeks to stem unfavorable discussions of those policies not only by labeling them illegitimate, but by publicly discussing how prosecutions are being considered.

How the implications of this trend to establishing a state run religion in America threatens the onslaught of a new Dark Age will be discussed in subsequent posts.

Part 2: “Knowing Neither Morals, Nor What is High Ground”

Neverending Ploys for Ending Liberty

When I write about fighting the growing despotism, I see, along with many of you readers, how thoroughly the apparatchiks have penetrated our institutions and continue to run our lives based upon an ever increasing pile of lies.

So I often say we can only do that with G-d's help. When speaking to atheists, can that have any meaning? Yes, of course it can. I may imply nothing more than that we must fall back on physics rather than metaphysics, so that "G-d's help" wrings out as:
 "natural law has a way of building tsunamis of reality, like chickens coming home to roost, so that every stack of lies will inevitably be swamped."
Rhetorical question from Og: Like the global warming that has continued not to happen?

Yes, that hasn't stopped them from using The Lie as cover to steal our liberties incrementally.
Following Og's advice, I will continue to write short items like this before my writing skills cause them to grow so large nobody will ever read them.
