When Man Ceases to Think…….. LIES COMMIT THEIR EVIL

 The following article by James Kushiner at Seasoned Veracity was sent by Mark Waldeland:

Behind the Lying Curtain

“In January 1973, a majority of U. S. Supreme Court Justices pretended that no one really knew when a new human life begins. Doctors said an aborted fetus was mere “tissue” or an indeterminate “clump of cells.” Subsequent advances in embryology, microbiology, and genetics have made it abundantly clear that the proper scientific answer to the question, “When is a new human being created?” is, “At conception.” Science has exposed a lie told to justify abortion.

In Russia, almost exactly one year later, in January 1974, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was interviewed by Time about his attempts to expose the lie that the Soviet regime had not killed millions of innocent lives in its vast prison camp system. A former prisoner himself, he documented the Communist holocaust in his 1973 bombshell, The Gulag Archipelago. When asked what people could do to support him, he said:

“Not with physical acts but merely by rejecting the lie, by refusing to participate personally in the lie. Everyone must stop cooperating with the lie absolutely everywhere that he sees it himself: whether they are trying to force him to speak, write, quote or sign, or simply to vote or even to read. In our country the lie has become not just a moral category, but a pillar of the state. In recoiling from the lie we are performing a moral act, not a political act; and not one that can be punished by criminal law, but an act that would have an immediate effect on our whole life.”

After enduring a campaign to smear and intimidate him and his family, Solzhenitsyn issued a statement: “A few weeks back there was still an honorable way out: to knowledge the truth about the past and so purge the guilt for old crimes. But convulsively, in animal terror, they decided to stand up for the lie to the end, secure behind their newspaper bastions.”

This reminds me of the current reactions by some to the Planned Parenthood videos. The defense of Planned Parenthood-and the lies with which it surrounds itself-is nothing less than shameful and disgraceful.”

Note:   Learning knowledge is  a basic  human male drive.  It is “he”  who is driven to expand the human experience genetically.  It is “he” who discovered:  “THERE IS NEITHER GOOD, NOR BAD.  ONLY THINKING MAKES IT SO”.

Without knowledge the human animal declines.

The human female genetically seeks security.   Without security the human animal declines.

“THEREIN LIES THE RUB”

The war in humanity’s world today is essentially a Marxist war to feminize the species into security, a peace  with feminist feelings and its dictatorship of  equal behavior.

It is the human male, his God-given  drive to think, to be curious, to explore, to discover that causes change, the enemy of dictatorships, particularly those religiously feminist  Marxist.

Truth does not exist as a value beyond a trick  among Marxist feminizing.   Truth requires knowledge which arises from thought driving curiosity, questioning, more thinking, even discussion,  and a chance for change which  must be eliminated in a feminized world.

An Old Man’s Review of Life

God willing, on the second Tuesday of November, 2016, I shall be voting in my fifteenth consecutive American presidential election.

Conservative folks gain character with age. Liberals gain power, arrogance, and deceit. I have been following national elections since FDR beat Tom Dewey in 1944. My dad was Republican…..My mother never talked anything close to politics. She came from a working class German immigrant family who also never talked politics. Her father was a life-long carpenter…..and a Democrat voter. Most of his five brothers did not speak English comfortably. It was not easy to be German in America during World War I times…..even in the German communities of St. Paul, Minnesota.

My father was Scotch-Irish and English in background. Stories were that his English ancestry goes back to King Alfred, and another wing came from a Lawrence on the Mayflower crossing in the 17th century.

For certain I know my grandfather…..that is my dad’s dad was born in 1858, two years before southern states secessions from the United States and the beginning of the Civil War. My grandfather, Frank Ray had left his birthplace, Cherryfield, Maine, when he was seventeen, by horseback. His family was wealthy but practiced primogeniture with Frank the youngest of five boys. This meant that the family’s wealth went to the oldest son. The rest were to fend for themselves. If they were lucky and relationships went well with the old man, some aid might find its way to the second and third son. The fifth was too far down the pole, so grandfather frank got on his horse and WENT WEST as a young man on his own.

Somewhere in the bowls of my house I have a postcard with my grandfather Frank’s picture on it sent to his mother in Cherryfield dated 1876, from Chillicothe Ohio. He wrote: “Mother, I am fine…Frank”.

He homesteaded in North Dakota the next year or so. He met my grandmother, nee Anna Williams around 1889 when her family wagon train got stuck in the mud crossing the Sheyenne River west of Fargo, North Dakota, near a town called Hope not far from  where my grandfather had built his home, barns,  and farmed. He and a neighbor spent a day or two freeing the group of eight and their five wagons from the river mud, I was told, and the Williams family decided to homestead nearby. Anna and Frank married within the year….and eventually  had five children. Grandfather  died in 1917 from a terrible throat cancer. My grandmother died in 1947 at age 80 from a stroke actively head of the expanded Ray family until a month before her death.

Both of the greater families fell apart as a  unit in 1947, with the passing of my mother’s father and my dad’s mother. No longer did all of the wings of the larger family gather at holidays or old folks birthdays.

Twice a year as long as I can remember the German section and friends gathered by the hundreds at Tanner’s Lake Pavilion in West St. Paul for dancing, beer, card playing, and German….with my Mother always the queen of the shows. She adored her greater German family. They were all very close, many farmers, carpenters, and meat packing workers….overalls guys, and devoted mothers averaging four or five kids per family….all churched, all good people who loved family. I was shocked when I first heard my mother speak German at a Tanner’s Lake gathering when I was about seven….still prewar. She always had us attend these gatherings, and loved being there where she was so admired for her modern Americanness. Despite her fondness for them all, she wanted to raise her children, my sister and me, and live with my Father as 100% American. And she ran the show at home.

Dad made a down payment on a new $6,500 house  in 1936, a five-room bungalow, it was called, in a very American new section of St. Paul filled with fields and empty lots and remained so until the war was over. He was only fifteen when his father, whom he worshiped, was dying. (The only person he worshiped more, was my mother. They were a great match, but rather distant parents.) When he graduated from Hope, High School at the end of the First World War, he was offered a contract to join the New York Yankees for player development. One of his older brothers, the one who was running the fatherless family, talked him into going to North Dakota Agricultural School to learn Pharmacy, instead. He usually regretted the choice. He was a talented athlete of those days….from a rural community which was devoted to men’s sports. He did represent the state of North Dakota in a national track competitions in Chicago in 1918 or 1919. He became a pharmacist, owned a drug store in St. Paul, Minnesota, and played competitive softball well into his 50s instead.

Everyone loved my dad. He died at age 86 and my Mother died at 90…..never the same after his death. Neither ever swore. Both impeccably honest.  She made me Churched.   They met in the twenties in ball room dancing competitions in St. Paul. I think she would have preferred stardom over family. She was very gifted in looks, charm, winsomeness, conversation, always at her best when ‘out in public’.  In those days adults dressed up whenever going out in   “public”.

We were poor, quite poor just like about everyone else around us….even living in a newer neighborhood. These were depression and war years.  Americans even in my newer neighborhood, didn’t have any money until the mid-1950s when new cars began to stream up and down city streets.

We bought an electric Norge refrigerator in 1949 replacing our ice box….and an oil burner replacing coal for heat the next year. Dad had purchased a second hand 1941 Plymouth to replace in second hand 1936 Ford in the summer of 1941. When the war broke out in December, 1941, the Plymouth never made it out of our garage except occasionally on Sunday’s usually in Spring when he’d drive the family through the woods of Lake Minnetonka to get out of the city. Television arrived in the Twin Cities around 1947. Two years later dad bought a Philco floor model television set with a black and white eleven inch screen.

I had a paper route, first distributing the Minneapolis Times in my St. Paul neighborhood, then the Minneapolis Star Journal, then the Minneapolis Tribune and the Minneapolis Star Journal and finally the St. Paul morning Pioneer Press and the afternoon Dispatch. I had to earn my own keep…..that’s the way it was, period, the beginning to pave my way.

What delivering papers did do was provide me with some money to sneak downtown after delivering   afternoon papers at age eleven, twelve, and thirteen, to explore other worlds before my Mother came home from work at my dad’s drugstore……Skid row and white slums along Wabasha from downtown nearly all the way to the state Capitol, summer sewer stench and all, was the great allure. I had seen “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”, a movie about poverty and struggle in the big city out East.

I’d always walk to and through the beautiful State Capitol building and then exit on the east side to walk through the Negro slums with the same summer stench around Mechanic Arts High School. Kids here as there along Wabasha, playing in the streets despite traffic.

Never did I feel fear. Never! Poor or no, the city was safe. Even in skid rows I’d enter a dive to buy a Coney Island for a dime….just to explore. A twelve year old kid passing drunks and whatever sitting along the long benches by the walls. I always saved a dime for that very visit….just to explore!

Each entire tour would cost me a dime plus a number of transfer slips which I maneuvered to get me home, all on the same dime. I especially loved the streetcars with the open air smoking areas at the rear of the cars. I liked the thrill and noise of being outside while the ancient streetcar screeched along the rails starting and stopping, going through the dark of Selby tunnel almost underneath the St. Paul Cathedral, and the best of all, when Mother worked all day Saturdays or during morning delivery before she woke up, upon finishing my paper deliveries I’d walk a couple blocks to the Mississippi River to climb the river side rock, watch the eagles and other birds, look for racoons, and jump, just jump from boulder to boulder over the rushing water below, or sit and watch…..being there inside such beauty, Nature’s setting, its sounds, colors, textures, shapes and sizes, lights and shadows which introduced me to love the beauty of scenery, a love  that never left me to this very day.

Boys not girls, then as now, are born curious, are born to explore and discover to build, invent, expand, and defend. Boys are NOT born girls…..Girls are! Therein lies one of today’s major rubs.  Feminist American universities and  left wing political products are claiming humans  all are the same ball of wax in today’s Marxist atheism’s, crime-filled world. Where are boys permitted to imagine, experiment, build, and explore on their own or anywhere today? Where is it taught? Where is it played? Where is it safe?

Guns don’t shoot to kill people. Human males shoot to kill people in modern American  unJudeoChristian feminized and Marxified human life which now dictates the difference between good and evil is only a matter of opinion. Even the drunks in the slums of the cities knew the difference in the 1940s and 1950s…..but not today at your corner American university from coast to coast.

Government Democrats Control Voter Rolls, and Voter Counts; The Fair AND the Foul!

Scores of Counties Put on Notice About Corrupted Voter Rolls

141 Counties Have More Registered Voters Than People Alive

CLICK HERE TO HELP US CLEAN UP AMERICA’S VOTER ROLLS

(Alexandria, VA) – August 27.  The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) has put 141 counties on notice across the United States that they have more registered voters than people alive.  PILF has sent 141 statutory notice letters to county election officials in 21 states.  The letters are a prerequisite to bringing a lawsuit against those counties under Section 8 of the federal National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).

The letters inform the target counties that it appears they are violating the NVRA because they are not properly maintaining the voter rolls.  The NVRA, (also known as Motor Voter) requires state and local election officials to properly maintain voter rolls and ensure that only eligible voters are registered to vote.  Having more registrants than eligible citizens alive indicates that election officials have failed to properly maintain voter rolls.

States with counties which received a notice letter are (# of counties): Michigan (24), Kentucky (18), Illinois (17), Indiana (11), Alabama (10), Colorado (10), Texas (9), Nebraska (7), New Mexico (5), South Dakota (5), Kansas (4), Mississippi (4), Louisiana (3), West Virginia (3), Georgia (2), Iowa (2), Montana (2), North Carolina (2), Arizona, Missouri, New York (1 each).  Federally produced data show the letter recipients have more registrants than living eligible citizens alive. (A sample letter can be found here.)

Lawyers for PILF have previously brought lawsuits against other counties that failed to clean up voter rolls after receiving a notice letter.  The notice letters also seek access to public information about voter roll maintenance efforts. The United States Justice Department also can bring lawsuits to fix corrupted voter rolls but has failed to do so during the Obama administration.

“Corrupted voter rolls provide the perfect environment for voter fraud,” said J. Christian Adams, President and General Counsel of PILF.  “Close elections tainted by voter fraud turned control of the United States Senate in 2009.  Too much is at stake in 2016 to allow that to happen again.”

The Public Interest Legal Foundation will monitor responses by the 141 counties and remedial clean-up efforts.  Federal law requires that a party sending a notice letter wait 90 days before filing a lawsuit.  The entire list of counties who received the notice letter can be found here.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), (formerly Act Right Legal Foundation), is a 501(c)(3) public interest law firm dedicated to election integrity.  PILF exists to assist states and others to aid the cause of election integrity and fight against lawlessness in American elections.  Drawing on numerous experts in the field, PILF seeks to protect the right to vote and preserve the Constitutional framework of American elections.

Below are a few of today’s ‘reports’ of the eastern news establishment attacking the rise of ungroomed Donald Trump, an American over whom they don’t, cannot, control, an American pushing the right buttons do expose its moral, spiritual, economic, cultural, and political collapse?

Please read them all. I am waiting for Donald to fall…..yet praying he won’t. He seems like a good guy, a successful, intelligent, imaginative, aware, an in-ones-face problem-solving kind of guy, an American guy determined to help our country become America again.

Grandmother Peggy Hubbard Tells it LIKE IT IS, MAY GOD BLESS HER!

Since the destruction of the American Negro family begun by Democrat  Lyndon Baines Johnson’s policies such as Aid to Dependent Children, which made it more profitable for unmarried mothers to receive government payments per child born than married mothers could profit from working husbands.

With the disappearance of black fathers from the civilized American Negro family, violent crime, ignorance, drugs, racism, and more recently the opening of not just a class or two, but entire Departments at universities and the National Democrat Party have arrived to advance black hate, its racist politics, revenge and disorder against white Americans to extort whatever possible including fame, status, money,  and destruction.

Since the 1970s one thread, about the only thread which  connected this uncivilization with decency, truth, and hope remained incredibly strong to save the civilized….the Negro grandma through the Negro Church….the marriage of wisdom and God. It sure as hell wasn’t the Democrat Party.   The only political gangs allowed on black premises since  stir riots in  Baltimore, Ferguson,  and elsewhere, and marching for Dead Cops, Michael Brown, and  Al Sharpton  and the National Democrat Party and its Barack Hussein Obama.

But, Truth, occasionally wills out no matter what the odds, source, and language…..especially when truth is truly genuine from experience….Enter grandmother Peggy Hubbard….likely speaking for nearly every grandmother of the community:

Murders in Virginia (by BLACK RACIST, if you must know!)

In black racist Democrat Party-university  politics only whites can be deemed racist.

The violent criminal class in America is black by color. It’s victims are usually black by color. Democrats and other feminists and black racists insist whites are to blame, Republican ones, for black violence and murder. Democrats, Marxists, blacks, and feminists at university and in journalism say so reducing truth-tellers to a hand full of folks like Jason Riley at Fox.

RACISM, AS PRACTICED IN AMERICA, IS ALMOST ENTIRELY BLACK IN COLOR. Yet, we read the following news reporting:

Lefty Racist, Jorge Ramos, Harasses Donald During Speech

GOOD FOR TRUMP FOR BOOTING JORGE RAMOS

by Paul Mirengoff  at  PowerLine:

As Scott notes below, Donald Trump had Jorge Ramos of Univision ejected from his press conference today. Good for Trump.

Jorge Ramos is a blight on journalism. He also embodies the threat that mass immigration by Hispanics poses to conservatism. The more voters who get their news from the likes of Jorge Ramos, the less chance American conservatism as we know it has to survive.

But these aren’t the reasons why Trump booted Ramos, or the reasons why he was right to do so. At the beginning of the press conference, as Trump recognized another reporter, Ramos jumped up and began talking. He refused several requests to yield the floor. Hence, he had to go.

Ramos got what he deserved and Trump will profit from giving it to him. Trump will also profit from later readmitting Ramos and kicking his behind during a lengthy exchange.

So much did Ramos assist Trump that you almost suspect he’d like to see the GOP nominate the tycoon, on the theory that the Democrats (from whom he’s in the tank) will have an easy time of defeating him. But this suspicion gives Ramos too much credit, I feel.

Trump also excluded a reporter from the Des Moines Register. This apparently was payback for an editorial Trump didn’t like.

Here, unfortunately, we see Trump’s dangerous side. It’s one thing — a good thing — to toss an unruly reporter. It’s quite another to exclude a reporter because of the opinions the editors of his paper express.

One fears for the First Amendment under a Trump presidency. But that doesn’t mean one can’t take pleasure from Trump trumping the man from Univision.
