Did Jesus exist?

November 25, 2017

Atheist and agnostic historians with degrees who want to preserve a good reputation among their “peers” all agree that Jesus was a real-world person, the one referred to in the Gospels. Denying he existed is stupid.

Secular Roman historians referring to him, and growing in numbers so fast that Nero was able to blame them for the fires that consumed much of Rome. Gospels written within one generation of his death, burial and resurrection by disciples who all variously proved that they believed what they wrote in their accounts by virtue of their voluntary martyrdom as a witness to those beliefs. Psychologists and neuro-scientists discount the “mass hallucination” so-called hypothesis. Medical doctors testify that the “water and blood came out” is evidence of corporeal and clinical death on the cross.

Skeptics said the lack of any ancient reference to nails on a cross in Roman crucifixions meant the narrative was phony, until archaeologists dug up nails used in crucifixions. They denied the existence of the Assyrian Empire until an archaeologist dug up the entire capital city of the empire. One skeptic became an archaeologist to disprove the names and places in the book of Acts until he dug them all up. Simon Greanleaf, Dean of Harvard Law, was an atheist and denied the Resurrection until he took up a student’s challenge to apply his own rule to consider the evidence before concluding anything. The result was The Testimony of the Evangelists, by Simon Greanleaf, subtitled Why I am a Christian.


More Minority Women Are Buying Guns, but the AP Doesn’t Ask Why | Stacy On The Right

November 24, 2017

Here’s the link:

More women are buying guns than ever before, so much so that media outlets have noticed and are attempting to get at the reasons for the uptick. But none of the stats on firearms purchases have alarmed leftists more than those surrounding black women.

Black women are buying guns, getting trained on them, and being really open about it. Just this week, the Associated Press profiled three such women, all of them black, and proudly boasting of newly acquired guns.

Why is this an issue? Black women are far more likely to live in neighborhoods plagued by higher than normal crime, and they suffer abuse and even death at the hands of a spouse more often than any other ethnic group, yet the AP finds it puzzling that they are buying guns?

Scholastics and Jesuits

November 23, 2017

The apologetics favoring rehabilitation of the Jesuits is a bit of misguided revisionism of history.

We now see the Jesuit order before our very eyes in 2017 ripping off its sheepskins and letting its wolfish fangs show against those who dare resist world government. Pretending that it had a different historical mission other than subject as many as possible to religious loyalty to the last-word rule of the Papacy is a misguided notion.

Ignatius de Loyola offered to bring the Protestants back under Papacy. It was more to recapture the Protestants than Muslims. They began happened as the Reformation was forming.

The Reformation was spiritually about restoring God to its rightful place above the Papacy. The Magna Carta also invoked God as the justification for pushing back against unjust decrees from the Monarchy.

Under Christianity, the rule of law means adhering to the Word of God, not the priest, king, or Pope, or pastor, or such. Clearly there is a hierarchy, as bionic mosquito points out, but the Bible is the articulation, and extension, of natural law for believers.

There may be some positives in the writings of many Jesuits, and certainly many of the deeds of some of them were godly and freedom-enhancing, but the Order as an institution instituted practices hidden from much of history by history’s oligarchs.

They have done all manner of atrocities in the name of the Church. The discovery of the Gunpowder Plot, whose intellectual author was a Jesuit priest, is a vindication of Protestant suspicions of Mary’s allies, and the Catholic plots to overthrow the throne to install the Catholics.

So now we get a Establishment Hollywood movie attempting to mask the Gunpowder Plot as an anarchist rebellion!

We now see what the Jesuits are about when we research history as it was. A mixed bag at best, an espionage and Fifth Column at worst. Fraud, Machiavellian political machinations, disruptions, on it goes. These are not the fruits of either a libertarian influence, nor a freedom-loving spiritual organization. Using temporal and political powers to subjugate the masses is more along the lines of a socialist propaganda organ.

And lo and behold, the Jesuit Papacy has joined the socialist one-world order, and given its blessing. I do not believe that the Beast (aka Antichrist) of Revelation will be the Pope, but it is looking like this Jesuit Pope at the Vatican may well be ready to take the role of the False Prophet of Revelation 13 and give his blessing to the Beast.

Thank God there are a great many Catholics in libertarian and Austrian circles who seem prepared to denounce their Pope as the American Empire and its successor increase their attempts to take back control. Post St. Patrick’s Ireland, had its autonomous areas ruled by their own nobles, and the “monasteries” were actually voluntary cooperative communities of families sometimes with a female as leader. Romans had to

By their fruits ye shall know them. Where Roman Catholic institutions and culture predominate, these nations have fewer traditions of liberty. The markets most free flourished in the United States. It took the enemies of freedom a whole century longer to fool the Americans in Protestant USA into tolerating a central bank.

Literacy historically was much more prevalent in all Christendom as it spread around the world, but a majority of the population historically in Protestant -dominated nations than in Roman Catholic dominated nations. By their fruits ye shall know them.

Note and “disclaimer”: There have been some shining lights among the Roman Catholic faithful, scripture-quoting St. Francis as the best-known example, and many accusations in the popular mind against the Vatican are wrong. The Papacy and many of its people in Germany did save many Jews, as was recognized in Israel. (And Hitler was not Catholic, or Protestant either, but pagan). I’ve met many godly Catholics, received hospitality in housing of its orders, but also saw a man “more Catholic than the Pope” kidnap by force waving a gun, his adult son, whom we led to sanity using the Word. And felt the spiritual wickedness of a Jesuit priest blasting us because we had dared to share our faith with his small group of “disciples”.

How the Dred Scott Decision Proves that the Supreme Court CANNOT be the Last Word in American Law ⋆ The Constitution — Gds44’s Blog

November 23, 2017

Sometimes out of tragedies come amazing victories. Legal scholars consider the Dred Scott decision one of the worst, if not the worst, Supreme Court rulings in history. However, it was the last nail in the coffin that pushed the country into a war that finally abolished slavery. In 1820, Congress settled much of the contention about […]

About that fake 97 percent number

November 20, 2017

For a de-fake analysis of the fake 97 percent “consensus” number, see one of the web sites with this “truth vaccine” against official but lying numbers:

How about this for a vaccine, like it says about the alarmist trolls who planted the fake names in the Oregon list:

FOLLOW THE MONEY. If the money comes from politicians or governments who never rejected a cause for stuffing their favorite “cures” down our throats, or a cause to fill their buddies’ pockets, or from super-zillionaires who pretend to help the poor by building up their favorite crony governments and government policies, then just knowing that is a vaccine as well.

I frequently look for views that contradict my own and give a good eyeball at what can be extracted out as facts, as a good check on my own views.

And I’ll bet you that the test of these experiments did NOT give the “vaccinated” subjects did not involve a good look at the best places like and a few other good ones who go detailed into real science and analyze the data hidden behind the story.

The Atlantic: Guardian of the Vote, Computer Scientist leads charge for paper ballots

November 17, 2017


One commenter blamed Republicans for rejecting “voter-verifiable paper trail”. That word is gobbledygook, and Bev Harris in her crusade against electronic voting issued a rebuke at the partisan snapping against Republicans that took over the comment sections in her web site. Democrats and Republicans both were putting in the e-voting machines manufactured by a Venezuelan government-owned company and guaranteeing the outcome. Florida had vote counts exceeding registered voters in half-dozen or so counties with majorities in both parties. In Ohio 2012, many Ohio counties had a similar situation, more ballots than voters, in which Obama won.

In the Detroit area, in 2012 also, or 2016?, there were counties where the tallies were so much different than reality, that the solution written into state law said that the results had to stand as they were in the obviously very wrong first count!

In my opinion, at least two policemen should be present and charged with responsibility for the security of the ballot counts. In the case of “anomalies” like above, dock the pay for the day. Double if no hitches.

I’ve pushed this since before the 2000 election. After that one, I told everybody and every forum that could listen that e-voting was a m bigger thing than even someone hacking a bank account because the consequences are so much bigger.

Why do people think Holder wanted to get into state voting systems? 😉 Why do you think elections officials across the country of both dominant political parties were snatching up Diebold machines made by a company owned by the Chavez government?

GIVE CREDIT too to Bev Harris of Black Box Voting who has been leading the charge with her non-partisan activism and activists, who fought electronic voting from before the tainted money post-2000.

Chads are better than bits, but ink is better than chads. If a voter wants his vote to count, let him be responsible for marking his vote clearly.

Representatives from all parties present at every precinct that can send somebody, with police presence upon request by anybody. At closing time and the last vote in, anybody who wants to can watch the counting. Have all precincts post the counts on line, with sign-offs on paper scanned in, so there can be no monkey business like there was in Maine where one county election chair caught the state Republican Party primary results in a really blatant bald-faced big lie on the numbers. Because Ron Paul was the real winner there.

Bionic mosquito, the Reformation, and Freedom

November 16, 2017

Bionic Mosquito gives too much credit to the ideas in a new book that claims the Reformation, meaning the abandonment of loyalty to Rome, has an indirect consequence in the increase in state power today and the increased apostasy. (At least there is no outright accusation of apostasy here)

Norman Horn created the web site

We differ in a couple of very important doctrines, but we both agree with Laurence Vance, that no state is better than any state. And that the scriptures teach this. I think I accept this as a Biblical and godly doctrine. So there you have it. Church of Christ, Baptist (I think) and non-denominational but doctrinal, in agreement, not Catholic. In Libertarian Christian conferences, it’s a cross-section of all persuasion.

I think we need another Christian Reformation. The Reformation of Martin Luther and the Calvinists and the Puritans actually forced the Roman Catholic hierarchy back a little bit toward its early Christian days, but not enough. The embrace of the state of the bishops with Constantine did permanent damage to the organization and to some extent held back the spread of the Gospel. Christians went from the arena into the stands.

The dual existence of the Roman hierarchy and the various centralizing state hierarchies and its “dual allegiance” among the various subjects of both was not a true check on secular power. The Clergy made use of the state powers to enforce its material interests. And they were mostly material interests. Not quite back to the God-Emperor days of Rome, but almost, with lifetime indulgences sold for a building project. Not the kind of “cultural coherence” that incubates freedom.

The Reformation forced a reckoning of sorts in Rome. wikipedia says Pope John Paul II issued formal apologies to about a hundred historical figures and for acts, involving Galileo, Jews, the Inquisition, Crusades, and Catholics’ involvement with the African slave trade.

But it’s not all over. There are defectors from the Jesuit order that are exposing their dirty very un-libertarian strategies and practices to try to re-centralize their clerical power over “separated brethren”. Also one famous Jesuit helped popularize the Darwinism that was used by the most evil regimes in the 20th and now 21st centuries to justify their atrocities.

So much to say. The local bishop shut down a benefit for one work I volunteered for in one Latin country, claiming it was “against Catholic principles”.

The Reformation’s main message was “sola scriptura” while the Roman papacy claimed equal authority. Like almost every dissident movement, there is a requirement that there be “some of the unrighteous mammon” that are willing to help. Until such a time, there were burnings at the stake, heresy trials, and the like.

The discussion inevitably involves theology. Perfect corruption and Total Determinism as described by bionic are just that.

Another note: Europe before the Reformation was NOT “the longest-lasting and closest example of a decentralized, libertarian order we have seen in the west”. You can’t call it the closest to libertarian. The Dark Ages might be a better example. Ireland after St. Patrick but before Rome came and messed it up, too, even more so.

Roy Moore’s lawyers fire off the first anti-defamation legal action

November 16, 2017

Our worst crime ridden neighborhoods still receive police assistance because bad things happen to people who have suspect pasts. Extending your logic, only those you agree with should be believed.

A confusing juxtaposition but according to my logic it’s “innocent until proven guilty”, and “benefit of the doubt”. I’ve known personally real close of false accusations that put a guy in jail for beatings he never did, accused by his girlfriend, who confided the truth to a female relative who is a very close friend of mine. The Duke Lacrosse players went through hell and condemnation on the basis of a false accusation and malicious prosecution by a malicious prosecutor.

I also know from a very close female friend of abuses of her when she was just six years old. If you have a proven rapist or abuser, put me in the front of the line with a nasty whip and see if there’s something left for you.

Pay attention. Back when Jennifer Flowers broke her story in 1992, I was very very skeptical. It sounded dubious. But later on, the MATERIAL evidence of Whitewater, Paula Jones, then Climategate and the semi-“clandestine” airport in Mena, Arkansas for drug smuggling became clear, and then there was NBC execs doing everything possible to muzzle Juanita Broderick, and Swamp Media got into heavy censorship mode. That was then. At least the Jennifer Flowers story was earlier in the election season.

SMH. The Trump accusers have not disappeared. I suggest some research is in order.

I didn’t mean they died, kid, do some straightforward reasoned reading instead of picky picky reading. I didn’t mean any lawsuits were dropped if they were even filed, though I wouldn’t be surprised.

In context, my meaning was they were dropped from Swamp Media. The credibility factor was shot. WP and NYT and other swamp creatures are proven serial liars.

The latest accusers are four women who came forward yesterday. If you are referring to Beverly Young Nelson, she chose to be forthcoming for the very reason you accuse her.

You gotta be more clear, bring over at least a drop of context. I was speaking as general context for these accusations. The worse the offense, the more scrutiny is in order. To make sure you got the facts right first. One innocent guy was recently released after 45 years in prison! Not for nothing an accuser may have reasons to stay anonymous, but there is a cost to credibility with anonymity, BUT not for nothing the Constitution notes that the accused has the right to face the accuser.

If Moore’s credibility is fair game, so is the accusers’. It is a verifiable fact that Clarence Thomas’ accuser was awarded tenure the very same day she publicly said she would testify in his hearings. Just a coincidence of course, a special kind of stupid to think there was anything more than that.
Jim Bakker’s female accuser that was used to break his scandal, that one got a brief and fleeting talk show that was stillborn before it got traction. I never said there was “only” one. Read what I type, not add stuff, or ask.

The same way we can ‘know’ about priest abuse.
Rolling Stone and Duke? The Roman Catholic Church also sued and won cases against broadcasters and publishers claiming that their clergy never sexually abused children. What is your point?
Educated and sane people, that is who. Why did Comey announce a false investigation into Clinton days before the election?

You don’t know until you have the FACTS IN EVIDENCE. Not just accusations. Note that the WP in its first report padded the numbers to add impact on the one egregious accusation.

Now comes Moore’s lawyers initiating the first actions with the first preliminary step in a lawsuit against Alabama Media, aka, for some of the “reports”.

Is the Washington examiner more credible? They joined the Breitbart editors in fabricating and sharing fake stories about a Kenya birth.

I guess the Washington Examiner is no more credible than the town in Kenya that posted a sign proclaiming he was born there, until presumably operatives from the States had them take it down. Or Obama’s grandmother. But I rather believed Michael Savage’s approach was better, because like he said, “It’s too easy to forge a birth certificate”.

Now it comes to light, looking like Hillary Clinton learned her dirty tricks in the campaign from the 2008 Obama primary campaign.

I’m trying to make you upset? Don’t flatter yourself, I’m speaking for the sake of 3rd party readers.

I have a recommendation though. When I come across viewpoints contrary to mine, I do pay attention, even the ones that seem to be credible. I keep my mind open. It took a few Bill Cosby accusers and their accounts to get me to doubt him, in view of an article still fresh in my mind about how women in Los Angeles treat men they think are producers, and based on the testimony of a famous Mexican actress who came to Jesus and quit, but told how filthy the whole industry is and about the casting couch.

And even in the flood coming now of revelations, the accusers admit keeping their mouths about abuse shut for the sake of their careers. The most respectable accusation was from the Italian actress who went straight to police on Weinstein.
