Comey

Former FBI Director James Comey testifies before Congress. 

I’m sick unto death of hearing about James Comey. But no more than I’m sick of hearing about Russian collusion, FISA warrants, special prosecutors and impeachment. Enough already! Anybody with me on this?

 

After watching Democrats and the mainstream media – I know, they’re substantially one and the same thing – work themselves into a tizzy about supposed Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, I just can’t take it anymore.  They had high hopes that their new found fair-haired by James Comey would deliver a death blow to the Trump presidency, but that appears not to have happened. 

Even liberal commentator Chris Matthews (no relative) admitted as much.  Said Matthews, “But the big story has always been the assumption of the critics of the president…that somewhere along the line in the last year, the president had something to do with colluding with the Russians…And yet what came apart this morning was that theory.” So for you Democrats, take it from one of your own and just stop it with the Russia, Russia, Russia thing, ‘k?

Here’s the deal: you guys lost the election, not because of the Russkies, but because you had an epically horrible candidate. And you had an epically horrible candidate because the epically corrupt DNC epically rigged the primaries to ensure Hillary was your nominee, paving the way for the Trump administration, the very thing you hate the most in all the world.

Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire; your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers. – Isaiah 1:7

 

London Bridge Terror Attack_3

Police respond to the terrorist attack on London Bridge, June 3, 2017.

 

 

Dear Britain, we need to talk. I know, I know, talking about sensitive subjects, that’s the very sort of thing we’d all prefer to avoid. And yet, sometimes the very things that are most difficult to discuss are the very things that most need to be discussed. In this case, the uncomfortable subject I have in mind is your ongoing, painful-to-watch civilizational collapse.

For my part, I’d rather not bring up the topic. It would be much more comfortable to keep my nose to the grindstone and carry on as if nothing were happening. And yet, after watching news of the third major terrorist attack in Britain in less than three months, I simply cannot hold my peace any longer. In the words of Isaiah, strangers are devouring your land in your presence. But for all that you do nothing. How can this be?

But in truth, your response is worse than nothing. For not only are you failing to address the collapse of your civilization, each new disaster seems to strengthen your leaders’ resolve to hasten the day when Great Britain, at least as it has been understood for centuries, no longer exists.

Trump_Paris Accord Speech“We’ll always have Paris.” Those words, uttered by Humphrey Bogart, are among the most iconic in film history.

Fast forward seventy-five years and Donald Trump flips the script, saying Thursday in so many words “We’ll never have the Paris Accord!”

Well, praise the Lord and amen!

The Paris Accord was a disaster for this nation, and Trump was absolutely right to reject it.

Let’s take a closer look

Trump’s Thursday Speech

Running about 27 minutes, Trump’s speech was music to the ears of his supporters and a trigger to his foes.

Said Trump, “Therefore, in order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord…As President, I can put no other consideration before the wellbeing of American citizens. The Paris Climate Accord is simply the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries, leaving American workers – who I love – and taxpayers to absorb the cost in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories, and vastly diminished economic production…Compliance with the terms of the Paris Accord and the onerous energy restrictions it has placed on the United States could cost America as much as 2.7 million jobs by 2025…I cannot in good conscience support a deal that punishes the United States – which it does – …while imposing no meaningful obligations on the world’s leading polluters…In short, the agreement doesn’t eliminate coal jobs, it just transfers those jobs out of America and the United States, and ships them to foreign countries…This agreement is less about climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States…The agreement is a massive redistribution of United States wealth to other countries…The fact that the Paris deal hamstrings the United States, while empowering some of the world’s top polluting countries..the real reason why foreign lobbyists wish to keep our..country ties up and bound down by this agreement: It’s to give their country an economic edge over the United States. That’s not going to happen while I’m President…The Paris Agreement handicaps the United States economy…I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris…Foreign leaders in Europe, Asia, and across the world should not have more to say with respect to the U.S. economy than our own citizens and their elected representatives. Thus, our withdrawal from the agreement represents a reassertion of America’s sovereignty..AS President, I have one obligation, and that obligation is to the American people.

Not only were Trump’s words a stinging rejection of the globalist Paris Climate Accord, but conversely they represented the single strongest statement of American sovereignty by a president in my lifetime.

Well done, Mr. President. Well, done.

Nye_UndeniableLast week we looked a Chapter 1 of Bill Nye’s book Undeniable, Evolution and the Science of Creation. This week’s post will examine Chapter 2 of that same book, a chapter titled “The Great Creationism Debate.”

Bill Nye Debates Ken Ham

On February 4, 2014 Bill Nye and Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis (AiG) debated the question “Is creation a viable model of origins?”

The debate must have made a big impression on Nye, for he states at the beginning of Chapter 2 that “in many ways it [the debate] was the impetus for me to write this book.

According to Wikipedia, the origin of the debate were in a video posted by Nye on Big Think titled Creationism is Not Appropriate for Children.

In the video, Nye laments the that “Denial of evolution is unique to the United States.” This is a problem, Nye tells us, because it threatens to retard our progress and prosperity as a nation.

What’s interesting about Nye’s remark about the unique failure of the United States to bow down before the altar of Darwin is that he immediately follows it by saying “We are the world’s most advanced technological [civilization?]. I mean you could say Japan, but generally the United States is where most of the innovation still happens. People still move to the United States. And that’s largely because of the intellectual capital that we have, the general understanding of science.”

As Nye sees it, the stubborn resistance of Christians to accept Darwinian evolution is a threat to all this.

Without getting too far ahead of ourselves, it may be worth asking, just why is that, at least according to Bill Nye, the one nation where there is strong resistance to Darwinism is also, in Nye’s opinion, at the same time the most technologically advanced civilization?

These two ideas appear to be in conflict. If believing the Bible is really the social retardant Nye thinks it is, would it not follow that the US would be among the world’s most backward nations, not among its leading lights?

It seems to me that Nye, who claims to have a great curiosity about the world around us, would be curious enough to look into this strange [according to his world view] phenomenon, but the thought does not seem to occur to him.

For those interested, a video of the 2014 debate can be seen here.

.Youre-FiredThe big story this past week? Pretty obviously it was Donald Trump’s decision to reprise his role on the Apprentice, issuing a “Comey, you’re fired” to the now former FBI Director.

As with any decision of this sort, the was a sharp divide along party lines. Some Republicans cheered the news. Democrats, on the other hand, railed against the decision.

Writing in The New Yorker, John Cassidy opined, “At a time like this, it is important to express things plainly. On Tuesday evening, Donald Trump acted like a despot.”

Oh, spare me. The republic will survive.

Generally speaking, the hiring and firing of federal bureaucrats is not a terribly interesting topic. But in Comey’s case, a few words are in order.

For my part, I lost all respect for the man last summer when he failed to recommend charges against a clearly guilty Hillary Clinton in the Servergate scandal.

Then, just a week before the November vote, Comey claimed he was reopening the investigation, only to shut it down just a few days later. This made Comey appear indecisive.

A third failure of judgment on Comey’s part was his decision to launch an investigation into Trump’s dealings with Russia, based, as it was, in part on the debunked “Golden Shower” dossier.

So we have an FBI Director who wouldn’t recommend charges against Hillary Clinton, against whom there was a mountain of evidence suggesting serious wrongdoing during her term as Secretary of State, but who continued to doggedly pursue the case against Donald Trump, a case notable for its complete lack of actual evidence.

So, should Comey have been fired? Yes.He failed the biggest test of his career when he refused to recommend charges against a clearly guilty Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, the American people showed better judgment than he did by refusing to put her in office.

Ruth_and_Naomi_Leave_Moab

Ruth and Naomi Leave Moab, 1860, by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872).

Today’s post is a continuation of last week’s, which concerned the deportation of Maribel Trujillo-Diaz. Mrs. Trujillo-Diaz, who had been living illegally in the US since 2002, was deported to her native Mexico on April 19.

The deportation took place despite an aggressive and emotional campaign by the Cincinnati Archdiocese and other social justice groups to subvert actual justice and keep Mrs. Trujillo-Diaz in the US.

It seemed good to write about this particular case, because it encapsulates many of the issues related to the current immigration debate in the US.

Last week we looked specifically at the intellectual arguments upon which Rome bases its immigration stance. Specifically, Rome’s erroneous doctrine of the Universal Destination of Goods (UDG). This communist doctrine, which teaches that “all the earth’s goods belong to all people,” informs all of Rome’s social teaching, including its position on immigration.

Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election in part on his promise to build a wall along the US southern border and make Mexico pay for it.

Rome’s immigration program, on the other hand, aims to flood the US with Roman Catholic immigrant welfare cases, in order to Romanize America and at the same time to stick the historically Protestant American people with the bill for their own dispossession.

But almost no one understands this.

That Rome has for decades succeeded in cloaking its wicked intentions behind a shroud of pious sounding social just platitudes serves to underscore the evil genius of Antichrist.

It would be a fairly simple thing to write another whole post on Rome and immigration. The subject is worthy of a whole book just by itself. But as time is limited, I must pass on to other subjects.

This week, I would like to review some of the other important aspects of this particular case, using them to highlight other facets of the immigration issue.
