Jesuits schooled the worst tyrants of 20th century

July 26, 2015

I was a missionary and had an unpleasant surprise encounter with a Jesuit priest who took umbrance that we were living like St. Francis. Mad because we were winning the hearts and minds of his little group of twelve young men that he was training for influence in society in the Dominican Republic.

 

That man oozed an evil spirit all around. He rebuked us for not having a job, never mind we had had a spiritual ministry and any new members that were lazy were fast to quick (or get invited to leave). He had just returned from Cuba where a Jesuit school graduate ran the country (“socialism forever!”) and he said “everybody” works the cane fields. (Forced labor as a good thing?) That guy didn’t ever cut any cane, count on that.

 

The driving ringleaders of socialism never do the grunt work and they don’t share the wealth and they don’t care about the poor they talk about from both sides of their mouths. “Democracy” is an empty platitude for them. The new “Pope”, some say installed in a Vatican Palace coup, cares not about the poor. He is taking a page from a billionaire socialist writing from 1990 that analyzed the decline of the Soviet Union and predicted the failure of socialism (his word) because Ludwig von Mises was right. But did he repent? Nah, he said socialists had to use environmentalism to get people to go along with socialism. So now looky here. All the “quiet” pushing from Jesuits to indoctrinate socialism into the minds of Roman Catholics of influence and upper classes, and they’re still losing mind share in Vatican Empire countries, to home-grown Protestant and independent Christian movements, faithful Papists with brains, and freedom-minded intelligentsia, even in uber-Catholic Columbia.

 

Friend of mine lived in the Soviet Union-then-Russia for six years. He said there is no such thing as socialism. There’s only the rich rulers and the very poor. Full stop.

 

They have to impose it by force everywhere in the world or risk another infection from the societies prospering from free markets, or “more-free” markets, (such as they are allowed to function).  So they’re working on it. They environment, aliens, cause wars so they can bring peace, whatever works.

 

But they’ll have a big problem with the “saints” who refuse to accept they embedded chip by which they already have had plans to eventually enforce, and they already have placed “in the field”. Talked to a security product salesman once, early 1990s, who told us he already had customers who had embedded chips for security puposes, in case of kindnapping etc. Not very long after that a female Congressman was kidnapped in Columbia by the FARC and quickly thereafter rescued by the military. They refused to divulge how they found where she was kept. (No wonder she went so boldly to the riskiest areas).

Cambridge professor spouts leftist-approved conspiracy theory

July 26, 2015

A Cambridge professor says he thinks the oil industry may have killed three climate change researchers, who died within weeks of each other.

Or if they were killed, maybe he should speculate it was because they discovered that the Arctic ice cap was expanding instead of melting away and they were going to issue mea culpas. Can’t have that. Too hard to keep the media lid on the real genuine climate scientists who ridicule the official government-ordered tax-funded false science. It took the late Michael Crichton and his debating buddy just one night to change the minds in the audience on the subject.

Robert Heilbroner was a socialist who wrote in 1990 that the Soviet Union would collapse because Ludwig von Mises was right. So he said socialists should use environmentalism to get people to go along with socialism.

There is no genuine socialist equality program. The main pushers of socialism and environmentalism both are Sierra Club billionaires like George Soros and his colleagues.

Be not deceived God is not mocked. Jesus will return soon and send our modern Pharisees and money changers to where they belong.

How about pix of crimes prevented with the use of self-defense weapons

July 26, 2015

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3174367/Photographer-Joe-Quint-s-poignant-pictures-America-s-victims-gun-crime.html

Daily Mail just ran a feature with photos of “survivors of gun violence”. The feature did not show any of the victims who successfully shot back, or the ones who shot down the perpetrators, or the guy in a Washington state mall who stopped a shooting spree with only one down, because the shooter saw his gun.

I didn’t see Susan Hupp’s picture there either. She was at one of the worst massacres in history at Luby’s Cafeteria eating with her parents when a guy crashed his truck into the place, landing inside, and calmly began shooting. Her Dad was hit and her mother died with him.

Her handgun was locked up in her car one block away because at that time Texas had a ban on concealed carry.

She was so mad she waged a one-woman war against gun control, got herself elected to the Texas state legislature, and pushed and yelled till she got concealed carry passed..

My wife stopped a kidnapper from walking away with her son because she had her own “protection” in her purse, and she used it. He had the good fortune that it was my wife because she didn’t drop him dead.

There is one area in Honduras that has no violent gang problem. It has a violent reputation and everybody is armed there. They tried to form one gang chapter there but it was literally terminated after they killed the first father’s son.

The best prevention against bad guys with guns is good guys with guns. Best defense against tyranny especially.

 

Can things get any more crazy?

CALIFORNIA  ATTY-GENERAL MORE WORRIED ABOUT PERMITS THAN BABY ORGAN TRAFFICKING

Most people who follow the news chatter know by now that a Planned Parenthood executive was caught on video talking about how the price of a specific baby organ depends on the disparate difficulty it causes the abortionist during the “extraction”, a euphemism for prenatal infanticide. The word “crunch” came up several times.

So what does the Attorney General of California promise to do? Root out this evil incentive for baby parts trafficking? No, she’s going to investigate whether there is any permit or license that the messenger forgot to get in this filming, and if the messenger violated any of the minuscule regulations on such matters.

Of course with the massive Hollywood press industry in the middle and paparazzi protections in place, maybe they’ll have some difficulty.

After all, nobody protested, or requested such an investigation, of Michael Moore, who pulled the same kind of stunt on Clint Eastwood for his anti-gun film.

Some in Congress are indignantly talking about investigating. These are politicians mostly of the party that has had several chances to shut down the massive federal funding this infanticide industry gets, and in the several states, and have not done so. Maybe somebody has the inside scoop on these reluctant pro-life politicians.

And `let’s give a nod to those Democrat Party Congressmen who could have blocked the infanticide-friendly Obamacare law, but were pushed, cajoled and even lobbied personally by President Barack Obama himself to obey. Bart Stupak was the “last hope”, he sacrificed his political career to what he had to know was a lying promise from the president’s mouth, and dragged the few fellow pro-life Democrats to defeat in the next election.

Whatever did Obama *really* say to Stupak in that secret meeting? What incentives, arguments, threats?

JUDGE ORDERS CHICAGO TAXPAYERS TO PAY FOR UNIONS AND POLITICIANS’ LYING PROMISES

How can anybody say that there is government “by the people” if the elected politicians can conspire with union bosses to sign contracts that steal other people’s money to fund public employee pensions?

Every legislature that burdens future legislatures and future generations with a growing debt and theft by inflation is committing a robbery that no non-governmental criminal organization can match in its brazen immorality, its arrogance, committed under a cover story of playing fair and favoring the poor.
But then again, the voters go ho-hum and too many of them think they’re voting for “fairness”, when demagogues promise to “help the poor” and soak the rich. They ARE the rich people!

WHO SHOULD VOTE?

“Immigrants aren’t the only ones who shouldn’t be voting”:
https://www.lewrockwell.com/2015/07/ryan-mcmaken/immigrants-shouldnt-vote/

Ryan makes a good point here. People think it’s really bad when a mayor gives the garbage utility contract to his own company. That’s obviously a conflict of interest. Nepotism is a dirty word.

And yet  seniors have a vote on who can use other people’s extorted moneys to give to them.  Welfare recipients vote on who takes other people’s money to give to them. The long list does not just include not only food stamp recipients, Medicaid, healthcare subsidies for the poor, Section Eight housing. There are nationally protected industries and unions who benefit materially from government policies. Students get federal aid and think it’s a great program.

We have a zillion laws against conflicts of interest in working for government and in working for companies. In many cases it is a crime for a company employee to receive gifts in exchange for favoring one vendor over another.

The same idea applied to political elections would make elections much more fair.

If you get any benefits at all from government, you give up your “right to vote” on who pays you those benefits, whether it’s a job, or direct subsidies, or any program moneys at all. Subsidies would include of course all corporate subsidies and the effect would apply to all employees of any said company. That means all of them. It means all organizations that work on electing anybody.

 

Corporations would have less political clout that way. Welfare recipients too, but nobody wants to get a label of Scrooge. Private companies even now budget lots of money for “charities”.

A person seeking employment would consider this. No more political promises to “bring home the bacon”. No more representatives pushing to allocate bases to their home towns and messing with the voter base that got them their job, even though they cannot vote.

Even some of these staged shows the industry calls “reality shows” do not allow contestants to vote for themselves.

(The industry likes to call them “reality” shows, but who in the real world normally goes naked in a bug-infested jungle full of briers, bristles and thorns to see if they can last 21 days? They are game shows, innovative as they may be)

 

John Nash (“A Beautiful Mind”): Influenced by Austrian economics

July 19, 2015

At the following link find a paper that finds a connection between Ludwig von Mises and John Nash, whose life was featured in the book and movie “A Beautiful Mind”. It wraps up with a quote from John Nash referring to his teacher from Austria, and distinguishing Austrian economics from  mainstream economic thought, and crediting its influence in his thinking. Nash received a Nobel Prize in Economics.

Copernicus, the Printing Press and the Reformation

July 5, 2015

Some secular writers need some  education on the realities of history. As we can see in looking around us, neither good nor bad “religion” suffered at all from Copernicus’ theory, and neither did God, any more than it did from the pagan mass murders of the Roman emperors, or at the hand of the atheist and secular mass murderers of the Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot, or Maoist regimes.

They even admit that at first the Pope himself was pleased to learn from Copernicus. Then came the secular “science” lobby with its emotional attachment to their own clinging to Aristotle instead of Ptolemy, and they found a way to convince the Church Establishment that their pet paradigm was scriptural and the Church itself was in peril if it did not accept the established “consensus” view of science”, their take on it.

After all, the geocentric view was taken from one of the secular/pagan Greek traditions, not the Biblical. We have the same problem today.

False “Religion” took a blow because it cowed to the secular lobby then, until new generations took to the new paradigm. This happened as well with Mendelssohn’s inheritance experiments with plants, until Darwin’s ideas were “safe” enough to let it hit the presses.

And then the howls of pain at the very idea that the universe had a beginning like the Bible said, earning this discovery the atheist pejorative of “The Big Bang”.

The process of liberation from the religious and secular leaders began NOT with Copernicus but the process began more with the printing press, which made it easier to spread ideas, and made Bible reading available to many times as many people. Therefore, while John Huss had been burned at the stake for his Bible-believing heresy, the ideas of freedom that the Bible itself had spread lit the fire in Martin Luther’s bosom and inspired his friends in nobility to hide him from the oppressor.

And while a lot of Christian kings including King James himself believed in a false doctrine of “divine right of kings”, what the Bible itself teaches is that ungodly and unrighteous kings don’t have any such “right” at all. It is a testament to the man himself and to the King James Bible that the translation that is known by his name today rings a death knell for any “divine right” of anybody to rule over anybody else.

In fact it is very clear that God himself was very angry with the Israeli elders when they demanded a king at all to rule over them. People who want kings (or rulers, or even representatives) to rule over them are declaring that they do not want God to rule their lives.

Jesus wisely replied to his enemies, “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s”,  meaning render NOTHING unto him that you are not forced to do under threat of violence. Jesus’ lesson the apostles at the end of Matthew 17 makes clear that kings and conquerors are thieves by definition. “We can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.”
