VIDEO A Strange Political Place: Sanity The New Anarchy – Free Speech In Danger Of Extinction – Maher Backs Coulter

A Strange Political Place: When Sanity Is The New Anarchy

April 21, 2017 by AL 

 

I find myself in a strange political place. One in which I vehemently reject the secular status quo establishment, but scoff at the politically correct progressive push toward a dehumanized socialist society.

Consider the words of  K.A. Ellis at Christianity Today:

AN INSUFFICIENT RESISTANCE

The desire for social change is noble—if tempered by the gospel.

Recently, I was with Christians who live under a Communist regime. They’ve been thrown in prison repeatedly due to their faith, and descriptions of their awful imprisonment are peppered with details of the sweetness of Christ’s presence.

They spoke of the growing spiritual hunger of younger believers as the Communist regime proved unable to deliver on its grand promises of utopian equality. These young people are choosing the narrow road of Christianity rather than the broad road of conformity and compromise. Our friends’ words were studded with the jaggedness of rough-roads-not-yet-made-smooth, and it was difficult not to notice their missing body parts and visible scars—disturbing threads woven into their testimonies’ tapestry.

After decades of watching revolutionary power dynamics, our friends spoke a valuable truth: Revelation is a stronger force than revolution.

If anything those trends are coexisting in a way that allows the 1% to drive action and policy while the other 99% are sold a turd sandwich filled with faux equality. Our political options appear to offer little substantive resistance against the growing cultural tide that promises an extension of larger government, more globalism, and further erosion of traditional values and morality. An arbitrarily defined and radically aligned form of political correctness fuels and typifies this new social order.

Such the agenda pushed by the Human Rights Campaign:

EQUALITY ON THE AGENDA FOR WORLD LEADERS IN DAVOS

HRC was proud to join world leaders in Davos, Switzerland, during the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting last week.

“The LGBTQ community is under attack across the globe, and that’s why it’s incumbent upon all of us to keep pushing forward and strengthen our global movement,” said Chad Griffin, President of HRC, in an article written for the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda.

HRC co-sponsored a breakfast hosted by Accenture which focused on LGBTQ rights. At the breakfast, senior executives from Microsoft and Accenture joined the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein and President of Human Rights Watch Ken Roth to address the timely question: Are LGBTQ rights going backwards?

Panelists highlighted the progress we have made, but then urged that we are not yet finished. Though the troubling elections in Western Europe and the U.S. have left the LGBTQ community feeling fearful and uncertain, the panelists emphasized the critical roles that corporations can play in the absence of government support.

My increasingly maligned faith in God undergirds my perspective on current events. Haters, deniers and agenda defiers are deemed they who hold to the perfected and special purpose assigned God’s creation.

The media industrial complex is designed to complement and feed the military industrial complex and the realization of an elite utopian society of men. But if you’re like me, you’re not buying it…

“Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.” – Hebrews 12

Judge Jeanine: Free Speech Is In Danger Of Extinction


BILL MAHER GOES TO BAT FOR ANN COULTER AFTER UC BERKELEY CANCELS SPEECH

“Berkeley, you know, used to be the cradle of free speech, and now it’s just the cradle for f—king babies.”

April 23, 2017 by DailyCaller

It appears even the most liberal of Democrats are turning on their own as the virtue-signalling vacillations grow ever more mind-bending.

After University of California at Berkeley officials decision to rescind an invitation for conservative author and commentator Ann Coulter to speak on campus, only to restore the invitation for a later date…

HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher exclaimed on his show Friday night that…

“Berkeley, you know, used to be the cradle of free speech, and now it’s just the cradle for f—king babies.”

As The Hill reports, Coulter’s speech set for this Thursday was canceled due to anxiety by school officials that protests could spin out of control the same way they did in February when alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak. Riots resulted in more than $100,000 in damage to the campus and the speech was cancelled due to security concerns.

But after scathing criticism, the school reversed its decision on Coulter on Thursday, and will host the speech on May 2.

“I feel like this is the liberals’ version of book burning, and it’s got to stop,” Maher said before taking aim at former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean for his tweet stating hate speech isn’t protected by the First Amendment.

“Yes it is!” Maher insisted.“Threats are not protected by the First Amendment,” the host added.“It doesn’t mean ‘just shut up and agree with me.’” Conservative commentator S.E. Cupp, a panelist on Maher’s show Friday, doubled down on Maher’s criticism.

“It’s a shame,” she said. “Liberals are creating a fantasy land on college campuses that does not exist in the real world.”

Maher and Coulter are longtime friends. She has appeared on “Real Time” on multiple occasions over the years. “I obviously don’t believe in his politics, but I like him. He’s a true and loyal friend. He always has been,” Coulter told Sean Hannity last year.

Ironically, as The Hill notes, Maher was UC-Berkeley’s 2014 fall commencement speaker, but students at the time started a petition to have him removed over a disagreement on the atheist comedian’s views on religion and Islamic terror.

VIDEO Dems Obstructionism on Border Wall ‘Stunning’ – Funds In Budget – By Improper Tax Credit Payments

Mulvaney: Democrats Obstructionism on Border Wall ‘Stunning’

 

 23 April 2017 by Pam Key

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” White House budget director Mick Mulvaney accused Democrats of “stunning” obstructionism by not agreeing to a deal for funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall in exchange for Affordable Care Act subsidies in the spending bill that would keep the government from shutting down.

Mulvaney said, “Actually, what I would say is they’re holding hostage national security. Again, something they supported in the recent past when President Obama was in the Senate. So we don’t understand why this is breaking down like this. We’re worried that this is sending a message that this is going to be the next four years. That Neil Gorsuch was not a one of thing, that the Democrats will oppose everything that this president wants to do, which is stunning to us, especially when we are offering them something they want in return.”

DHS Chief Kelly: Trump Will Be ‘Insistent’ on Funding for Border Wall

 23 April 2017 by Pam Key

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said President Donald Trump “will be insistent” on including funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall in the spending bill that would keep the government from shutting down.

Partial transcript as follows:

BASH: Will the President go to the mat and insist on funding his border wall as part of the stopgap government funding measure?

KELLY: I think it goes without saying that the President has been pretty straightforward about his desire and the need for a border wall. So I would suspect he’ll do the right thing for sure, but I would suspect he will be insistent on the funding.

Sessions: Improper Tax Credit Payments to ‘Mostly Mexicans’ Could Fund Border Wall

23 Ap 2017 by Pam Key

 

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said President Donald Trump’s proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall could be paid for with improperly paid tax credits that go to “mostly Mexicans.”

Partial transcript as follows:

STEPHANOPOULOS: You sound quite confident right there.

Do you have any evidence that Mexico is going to pay for it?

SESSIONS: Well, we’re going to get paid for it one way or the other. I know there’s $4 billion a year in excess payments, according to the Department of the Treasury’s own inspector general several years ago that are going to payments to people — tax credits that they shouldn’t get.

Now, these are mostly Mexicans.

And those kind of things add up — $4 billion a year for 10 years is $40 billion. There are a lot of ways we can find money to help pay for this. But in the long run…

STEPHANOPOULOS: How are you going to…

SESSIONS: — they’ve lost those…

STEPHANOPOULOS: — account for that money?

SESSIONS: What’s that?

STEPHANOPOULOS: How are you going to account for…

SESSIONS: Well, we just…

STEPHANOPOULOS: — that money?

SESSIONS: The Department of Treasury, several years ago, under the Obama administration, said that if you change the regulations and enforced it properly, you would save up to $4 billion a year.

There are other things that we can do at the border to create revenue that would pay for the wall. There’s no doubt about that.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But in your discussions with your counterparts in Mexico, they have given no indication at all that the Mexican government is prepared to pay a single cent for this wall (INAUDIBLE)?

SESSIONS: Well, I don’t expect the Mexican government to appropriate money for it. But there are ways that we can deal with our trade situation to create the revenue for it. No doubt about it.

VIDEO What Does the March for Science Mean by ‘Science’?

 22 April 2017 by J Scott Armstrong and Kesten C. Green

What is the “Scientific method”?

Saturday’s March for Science calls for “robustly funded” science and “political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.”  But is this just an attempt to dress up the marchers’ political beliefs as science? And what do they mean by science?

Fortunately for those who care, there is a remarkable level of agreement in the writings of scientific pioneers such as Francis Bacon, Isaac Newton, and Benjamin Franklin on the nature of the scientific method. That agreement is also reflected in the definition provided by the Oxford English Dictionary.

We have expanded on the established definition and identified eight necessary criteria for a work to be considered useful science. The criteria include objectivity and full disclosure. We expect that most scientists would agree with these criteria as obviously true and important.

The pioneers of science charted the way by describing how to comply with the criteria. To be objective, according to Newton, the study should compare all reasonable hypotheses by using a fair and balanced experimental design.

We have summarized the eight criteria on a one-page checklist (available at guidelinesforscience.com). You can easily refer to it to assess whether something you are looking at is a work of science. By using the checklist, you do not have to depend on an authority to tell you “this is what the science says.” Knowing and agreeing with the criteria in the checklist does not help. To be useful, the checklist must be used.

The checklist is concerned only with the scientific method, so one does not need to be an expert in the field or topic to use it. In fact, experts may have difficulty rating the scientific compliance of works in their own field.  They are likely to be biased against findings that challenge conventional wisdom.

We found that the ratings of raters who did not use the checklist were unreliable. Their ratings differed substantially from those derived using the checklist. When faculty and students raters used the checklist, their ratings were remarkably consistent. The checklist is available at guidelinesforscience.com.

The checklist is badly needed. One cannot rely on the fact that a purported discovery was published in a high-status scientific publication. When we used the checklist to rate papers published in leading scientific journals, we found less than one percent of them to be compliant with the scientific method.

We suggest that you try out the checklist at the March for Science rallies. Show your respect for the scientific method and, as Newton emphasized, be willing to consider alternatives. Be fair in evaluating alternative hypotheses. You have to ask yourself the question, “Can I imagine any evidence that would prove my favored hypothesis is wrong?” If you can’t, you are not approaching the subject with an open mind. You also fail Newton’s criteria for understanding science.

Speakers should comply with science. Listeners should be respectful and request of the speakers, “Please show us that you have complied with science.” It’s not enough for them to say that they have followed the scientific method.

Progress in all fields relies on the scientific method. Science is a never-ending, never-settled process.

Voting has no place in science. Scientific laws always eventually prevail over the political laws created by our elected officials.

The March for Science should not simply be another way for us to express our opinions. It should not be an effort to pressure scientists and voters to agree with us. The scientific method is the best way we have of engaging in factual disputes.

Trump to Hold Rally in Pennsylvania Night of White House Correspondents’ Dinner

 22 April 2017 by Katherine Rodriguez

President Trump announced Saturday afternoon that he will be holding a rally that happens to be the same night as the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

“Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania. Look forward to it!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The announcement comes after Trump made the decision to skip the annual dinner in February, breaking with the tradition presidents in recent years have set by attending the event.

The rally will be held April 29 in Harrisburg, the same day as Trump marks the 100th day of his presidency, Politico reported.

A senior White House official said the decision to hold the rally that day had more to do with how Trump planned to spend the hours of the 100th day than the correspondents’ dinner.

“The media is trying to make this about them when — respectfully it has nothing to do with you guys,” said the official. “It’s about focusing on the people.”

No White House staff will attend the dinner either as a show of solidarity with Trump, and outlets such as Vanity Fair, TIME, People, Bloomberg, and the New Yorker have canceled their parties.

Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein will headline the event in Trump’s place to present journalism awards.

VIDEO Open Letter to Politicians: Have Forgotten About We the People – Comey Did Not Trust Lynch, Cover For Hillary

An Open Letter to Politicians: You Have Completely Forgotten About We the People

April 21, 2017 By Charlie Daniels

(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

This is an open letter to Democrats, Republicans, independents, liberals, conservatives and every other ilk of politician who is elected by the votes of Americans.

While I realize that there are two, three or sometimes more sides to a story, and understand the importance of representing the views of the electorate that put you in office, what I simply cannot understand is the partisan intransigence that would prevent grown, mature men and women from showing the molecule of reason it takes to reach decisions based on something other than that the opposing party supports it.

And in your self-righteous zeal to toe the party line, you have completely forgotten about we the people and the welfare of the nation you’re supposed to be serving.

It’s become a game with you people. You’ve all turned into tattletales, petulant pubescent third graders, all bent on becoming teacher’s pet and doing anything it takes to garner a few more votes.

You’d rather deprive the nation of a benefit than to let the other party get the credit for passing it. There is no loyalty among you, and you will run away from a colleague who does something unpopular before the ink on the defaming article has even dried.

You’d give citizenship to aardvarks if they could vote and say anything, accuracy and honesty be damned, and kiss a flatulent skunk’s posterior before you’d do or say anything that would make the other party look good.

I sometimes wonder how you see yourselves, as a knight on a white horse saving the nation, or as the rest of us see you, as a poorly-mounted, impotent Don Quixote charging dilapidated windmills in rusty armor.

And I wonder if any of you realize how very out of touch with what’s actually happening in the real world you are and how much that world has changed since you moved into your ivory tower, back when bell bottoms were in style.

I truly believe that when our forefathers designed our political system they never made allowances for career politicians. I believe the system was designed for a citizen politician to serve a term or two and then vacate the seat so somebody who actually knows what’s happening in the streets now can come in with a fresh opinion and without 20 or 30 years of partisan political baggage and obligations.

Well, let me tell you something boys and girls, this ain’t no game, and you’re treating it like one. Your acid pot shots at your opponents, your blind party loyalty, your seething opposition to anything the other party supports are but a few of the prime factors in the deep divisions we are experiencing and the almost universal distrust the public feels for you.

You play fast and hard with the truth when it suits your purposes; you become chameleons, changing shapes and even nationalities if it gives you any slight edge.

Some of you sink to telling blatant lies, even at the expense of whoever happens to be standing in your way.

You will even carry your folly so far as to shut down the government rather than sitting down like rational human beings and working out your differences.

We send you to office to work together, not to preen for the TV cameras or spend half your term trying to get elected to another term.

If any business in this nation handled their affairs in the way you people do, they would miserably fail, and that’s exactly what you people are doing, miserably failing.

You work for we the people, not your political party and you’d d— well better start acting like it.

America is bleeding, and we don’t need you deepening the wound.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem

God Bless America

FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY ‘DISTRUSTED FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL LORETTA LYNCH BECAUSE SHE TRIED TO PLAY DOWN THE INVESTIGATION INTO HILLARY CLINTON’S EMAILS’

Comey and other FBI officials felt Lynch and other in the Justice Department had provided Clinton with political cover

April 23, 2017

FBI Director James Comey distrusted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch because he believed she helped play down the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server, according to a new report. 

Comey ended up plunging the FBI into the center of the 2016 presidential election when he reopened the investigation into Clinton’s emails just weeks before the election.

The New York Times revealed that Comey handled the investigations into Clinton and Donald Trump, very differently.

According to several government officials, Comey rewrote the script when it came down to the Clinton case, mainly because the FBI believed she would win the election and feared they would be accused of helping her.

In Trump’s case, Comey did everything by the book, with the FBI’s traditional secrecy, according to the Times.

It is claimed this master plan, which the Times has called a ‘go-it-alone strategy’, stemmed from Comey’s distrust of senior officials at the Justice Department, including his boss, Lynch.

Comey and other FBI officials felt Lynch and other in the Justice Department had provided Clinton with political cover, according to the Times.

During a meeting in September 2015, Lynch reportedly called on Comey to use the word ‘matter’ instead of ‘investigation’ when publicly discussing the Clinton case, three officials told the Times.
