How Does One Separate Slut from Rut in Harvey Weinstein’s World?

How hungry for advancement in the American entertainment world is the climbing “star” willing to be to endure an event with Harvey Weinstein or his professional kin?

Today’s leader Democrats, their fascistic feminist wing  tell us especially at university, that the human female animal is  the “equal”, the carbon copy,  of the  human male animal, if not the superior, for the she believe in “PEACE”, she says.

“President elect”, Hillary Roddham Clinton, led her followers and their teachers to believe so.   Today’s less feminized American human male animals are “deplorables”, she declared publicly more than once.   Hillary proved she was butch enough to let this “truth” be known at last by all.  But the “President elect” part of Hillary passed her by last November.  Her deplorables beat her 306-232.

If we more mature Americans, those born between 1776 and Viet Nam war could be surveyed, we’d be able to list endless differences (in build, sex, ability, drive, and duty) between the human “sexes”  the two, that is, the female and the male apparently no longer known by these feminist extremists and their teachers at school and university.

We used to be farmers here in Minnesota, nearly all of us….both male and female, with certain duties needed to be tended to by each sex for survival;  duties about the same for thousands of   our animal years past….build, defend, explore, harvest, hunt, kill, clothe, feed, nurse and teach  the young for the species to survive.

Today we have reading, the internet, divorce, leftists, college “professors”, Hillary, Nancy Pelosi and Harvey Weinstein and his ‘girls’.

The Jewish Left, Harvey Weinstein, and the Hollywood Crowd

Weinstein, Feldman, Goldwyn, Goldstein, Feldstein, Cohen, Nehensky, Blau,  “and such”, are overwhelmingly Jewish  sir names in our America from my personal experience.   One recognizes them easily when one has been raised in an urban American Jewish community from 1934-1974.

Nelson, Anderson, Peterson, Bradley, Bach, Jones don’t make it.  “Berg” could go ‘Semitic’ or be nonSemitic,  requiring more research if truth in accuracy of background  be required.

Yesterday’s and today’s Jewish Americans are indoor people.   “No one’s made any money working outdoors”, I was advised by a Jewish neighbor of a Jewish  landscape garden client of mine.  He stood over me dressed in his million dollar suit on a hot Saturday while I was shirtless, lying backside on the ground artistically pruning a  Japanese Yew  I had made beautiful for the Jewish owner of the property over the years.

This owner was a very wealthy, very short “unsynagogued” angry at the world, man.   He was born and raised in the Bronx under the most urban conditions.   The Twin City national corporation in which he reached highest ranking in financing was sold to an international corporation.  He was released to be on his own in suburban Minneapolis.   Changes had to be made…..local things….He didn’t want to move from his acre in a western Minneapolis suburb.   He called me to redo  this very “oh-hum” tasteless home landscaping at the same time he had me teach him sculpting  outdoor plants  to challenge his anger at life.    He  also began building his own local financial service business out of his home, a home with grounds made beautiful.

I worked for him side by side   nearly every seasonal Saturday for years.   He learned to prune properly, the art of it, what and when to prune and why.   He learned how to smile.   He learned to love his outdoors.

In my lifetime the working world of our America, whether rural or urban,  has been transferred from the great outdoors to the Weinstein indoors where real money can be made in movies, investment, political conning,  and banking……where today’s Obamaling  Godless outdoor know-nothings preach to us their complete ignorance of the endless world outdoors.

Protestor Brit Actress “Pooped out” While Invading Farmer’s Property

 Arrogance and Emma Thompson, Actress
Despite the courts telling her that she couldn’t come onto private property to host her fracking protest, Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson obviously thought she was above the law given her celebrity status. In defiance of the court system, she and her sister Sophie entered a local farm with a small group of other protesters. There, the two spoiled brats set up their bake sale where they displayed energy-themed cakes as part of a Greenpeace-backed protest stunt.
The farmer who owned the land wasn’t having any of this; so shortly after witnessing the trespassers, he cranked up his tractor with the manure sprayer hooked to the back of it. You’ll love this. 
 
This is my kind of guy…….

Getting to Know the Outdoors Better

The Landscape Garden

“The garden has long been perceived as the highest, most perfect form of all art creations, the one closest to God and bearing the imagery of paradise itself. Indeed, the timeless quote, “One is closest to God in the garden,” has been the splendid pleasure driving countless generations to transform the land into garden. No matter how pleasurable, how physically and spiritually rewarding working the vegetable garden and nurturing the home orchard may be, however, the paradise of gardening is the creation and maintenance of a landscape garden. This is the garden of art, the garden of soul. A landscape garden is a plot of ground made beautiful by the arrangement and careful cultivation of plants. The art is called landscape gardening and its artist and cultivator a landscape gardener. Landscaping one’s home ground is the means by which most Minnesotans become acquainted with at least the fringes of the art of landscape gardening. When they dream of home it is a house in a setting, a setting of lovely trees and shrubs civilized with a carpet of lawn and an arrangement of beautiful flowers.

Landscape gardening is primarily a visual art form. Its beauty is first to be seen, but its purpose is to stimulate thought, to cause to dream, to effect memory, to inspire. The landscape garden is classically to be a place of quiet where the visitor, upon entering, finds a closer communion with the thoughts and feelings of all who have ever gardened this Earth than with the time and troubles of the day.

Although picturesque, the landscape garden is not a painting, it is a performance. Its artist is not a painter but a choreographer arranging not fixed colors and forms on a canvas, but directing exits and entrances of living members of Earth’s realm, plants bearing color and form, lines and textures which, especially in our northland, are constantly changing. Yesterday’s garden as yesterday’s ballet will never again be performed. Yet the skilled landscaper garden artist, by tailoring shrubs and trees to a particular style or by using annual flowers for sweeps of color, can slow change in the garden to give the impression of permanence.

The landscape garden is to be entered, as one enters a cathedral or library. In English literature one “retires” to or “withdraws” into the library, presumably to consult or escape with some thought, some dream, some memory, some inspiration in print. To aid withdrawal there must be border. The gardened place must be defined so the eye and mind cannot wander; so thoughts and dreams cannot be interrupted. With no borders the landscape garden is no garden at all, but a field.

The arrangement of plants is to the landscape gardener what the arrangement of chords is to the pianist. Although it is possible for a novice pianist to find a pleasing chord, one chord does not make a composition. Likewise, a novice gardener may plant a pleasing combination of flowers and shrubbery, but a landscape garden this does not make. “Composers” of the successful landscape garden know their plants. They know plants’ shapes and sizes and how these can be tailored to style. They know plant colors and textures and when and how they change. Garden artists know the sun and shadow of the garden and how to introduce or exclude either. They know plant preferences for shade, soil, and moisture. They gain their knowledge primarily from the experience of working with plants, from years of planting and replacing until the right combination suits the eye.

Not only must the successful landscape garden be designed and planted, it must be given time to mature. Gardens, like people, gain character with age. It may take years, decades before a landscape garden performs its best. Trees cannot yet be manufactured. And the garden must be groomed, regularly tended by caring, experienced hands, the hands of an artist, the hands of a worker. And even when all this is done well, what is achieved is an arrangement of living plants each and all subject to Nature’s mood and dictate, to stand or fall as Nature sees fit. A garden as planned is a garden never achieved.”

Recently, American hero, Dennis Prager, while listing a number of devotions occupying his time, admitted that he wasn’t into “the Garden”.  Yet, he is a very religious man, devoted to the Books of Moses.

The human soul has limited time to practice God’s  devotions in one lifetime.   Dennis Prager is urban, New York City tar and pavement whose parents were neither dependent upon, nor inspired by the power and beauty of vegetative seeds….seeds upon which the human animal of all sexes, shapes, colors, and sizes relies on for food, protection, inspiration,  and exquisite beauty.

The beautiful landscape garden in its finest forms, inspires the human soul, imagination, and devotion to the power of visual living matter.

There is not much time in our  human life’s calendar to do all things good and inspiring arising from ones soul……

I am a regular Dennis Prager fan and have been for more than a decade.  Being a Brooklyner, perhaps he is too urban, perhaps too urbane as well, to recognize the value of gardening the human soul with God’s Biblical  Truth and Beauty of   mind  and  behavior arises from the Garden of Eden…..and the touch and feel, that ONE IS CLOSEST TO GOD IN THE GARDEN.

Think of all the flowers, shrubs, and trees of the human  mind you are tending every day you share your sermons whether political, social, or religious.

 

Science and Capitalism Dancing Together……

The science behind capitalism

By John Conlin at American Thinker:

 

“The economic system called capitalism has been described in many ways, but at its core, it is quite simply free people freely interacting with other free people.  Capitalism has transformed the world by producing more wealth than any other economic system in the history of civilization.

But how does it produce such wealth?  Some have said freedom is the magic potion – that left to their own devices, free people will outperform any other economic system.

That is true, but the ultimate reason is deeper and firmly based in science and fact.  In the past few decades, a great deal of research has been done on what is called swarm intelligence.  Swarm intelligence attempts to explain and understand the collective behavior of group animals.  Think of honeybees, schools of fish, herds of bison, flocks of birds, etc.

The intelligence of the swarm is a significant multiplier.  Rather than relying solely on individual intelligence, these groups create a collective intelligence that is orders of magnitudes beyond that of any individual member.

They do so without any leader, with no management of any sort, with no one “seeing the big picture.”  In fact, having no one in charge is a key ingredient to swarm intelligence.  This incredible increase in intelligence is driven by countless interactions among individual members, with each following simple rules of thumb and reacting to their local environment and those members around them.  That’s it.

Perhaps counterintuitively, if an individual member did attempt to become a leader, the group intelligence would drop precipitously.  And although it may be difficult to grasp, this self-organizing behavior has no cause and effect.  It simply is.

Think of the intelligence of one of the members of these swarms versus the intelligence of the group.  We are talking about not adding a few group I.Q. points, but rather increases in intelligence by orders of magnitude.

My hypothesis is this same process is the scientific basis for the success of capitalism, and in fact the success of the human race.  This swarm intelligence has always been at work, but with our highly developed communication skills and the ability to record and store knowledge our collective swarm intelligence is truly astounding.  Just like the honeybee, our swarm is orders of magnitude more intelligent than even the brightest among us.

And thus capitalism, which is just individual freedom as expressed in an economic system, is absolutely certain to “work.”  It is a scientific fact just as certain as gravity.  And just like the swarm, it does so with no leader, no management, and no one seeing the big picture – no cause and effect.  It just is.

And just like the swarm, when we attempt to place leaders in this process, the collective intelligence plummets.  This explains why governments and their activities are always going to be far stupider than free individuals going about their daily lives.  This isn’t a political statement, but a factual one.

Again, we aren’t talking about knocking off a couple group I.Q. points, but rather magnitudinal increases in stupidity.  This stupidity multiplier isn’t restricted to governments; it applies to all organizations, the larger the worse…..”  Please read on:

The Fraud in “Climate Change”

THE FRAUD IN “CLIMATE CHANGE”…..

“Billions and billions of dollars throughout the world  have been wasted by world governments  over the past generation selling  the political leftwing anti-American  world of “Climate Change Science”….that 1) our globe’s Climate is changing…and we know that to be true, for it is always changing,  and that 2) Climate Change  IS life-threatening to the human and other animal (and plant) world….and we know that to be  true eventually,  for life on Earth exists on borrowed SUN time……but, there is a third clause caused by our Obamaling world of communist/socialist/feminist and racial fascism, a political one…..that our “Mother Earth” is heating up….AND  WHITE MAN has caused this  grave climate change threat to the human race and the nature of the plants and bunnies around us.   If he hadn’t invented all of these terrible things over the past six hundred years of his learnings, discoveries,  and inventions…… automobiles, air-conditioning and heating systems, marijuana, Hillary, submarines, tanks, rockets, and planes, suits and dresses, houses and sky scrapers, and that Titanic…..

Is it all a trillion dollar fraud?

The western, that is the guilt-ridden white world,  led by American politician, now professional  science hooker, the former  Vice President and noted Presidential loser, Democrat Al Gore, has led the charge to save world’s womankind by spending  white man’s   money  selling climate change through the United Nations over the past decade and two.  Yes, most likely if truth were allowed to be told.

Is Global Warming Science Just A Fraud?

by Will Happer at  Investor’s Business Daily:

 

“Climate Change: We’re often told by advocates of climate change that the “science is settled.” But in fact, “science” itself is in a deep crisis over making claims it can’t back up, especially about climate.

As BBC News Science Correspondent Tom Feilden noted last week, “Science is facing a ‘reproducibility crisis’ where more than two-thirds of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, research suggests.” This isn’t just his journalistic opinion, but the conclusion of the University of Virginia’s Center for Open Science, which estimates that roughly 70% of all studies can’t be reproduced.

And this includes the field of climate change, by the way. It’s a disaster. Being able to reproduce others’ experiments or findings from models is at the very heart of science. Yet, radical climate change advocates would have us spend 2% of global GDP, or roughly $1.5 trillion a year, to forestall a minuscule amount of anticipated warming based on dubious modeling and experiments.

Meanwhile, the federal government spends literally billions of dollars a year on climate change, with virtually none of the money funding scientists who doubt the climate change threat. There is no serious debate. This is a problem for all of science.

Worse, our government’s own science fraud is a big problem. Dr. John Bates, a former top scientist at National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, recently detailed how a government paper that called into question the 18-year “pause” in global warming was based on “experimental” data and politicized. That “paper” was used to justify President Obama’s signing of the Paris climate agreement.

Meanwhile, Georgia Institute of Technology climatologist Judith Curry recently retired, blaming the “CRAZINESS (her emphasis) in the field of climate science.”

Even so, mythical claims of a “consensus” among scientists about climate change continue in an effort to shut up critics. Those who dissent, and literally thousands of scientists and engineers do, are shouted down and harassed.

As Princeton University physicist Will Happer told the left-wing British newspaper the Guardian earlier this week: “There’s a whole area of climate so-called science that is really more like a cult. … It will potentially harm the image of all science.”

It’s time for some science Glasnost. New EPA Director Scott Pruitt has called for an open debate on climate science, rather than the name-calling and outright dishonesty of the past. Real science has nothing to fear from more openness and discussion, but everything to fear from more politicized dishonesty……”

Craig Rucker from CFACT: The Advance of the “Fascist Greens”

         VIRGINIA’S GREEN EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

“CFACT readers have been following Virginia farmer Martha Boneta’s battle to protect her property rights against intrusion by the Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) and other Green groups.

The PEC wants to prevent Boneta, you may recall, from engaging in such egregious practices as selling vegetables and throwing birthday parties on her farm.

To the Greens’ consternation, however, Martha Boneta is no pushover.  She has fought for her right to farm by successfully inspiring legislative action.  She has also resorted to the courts.

Imagine Martha’s surprise when Fauquier Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey W. Parker denied Martha her day in court against the PEC while permitting her case against neighboring landowners to go forward.

Senior policy analyst Bonner Cohen has details at CFACT.org:

“How impartial was Judge Parker? Months before the PEC case was even heard, Judge Parker proclaimed from the bench that he ‘didn’t believe the PEC was guilty of wrongdoing.’ This bizarre statement foreshadowed how Parker would rule when the case and the evidence were finally before him nearly a year later. For her part, Boneta plans to appeal the ruling and has separate suit pending against the PEC.”

The right to farm in freedom is what inspired a multitude to leave Europe and settle in America.  Property rights are an essential American liberty that must be protected.

How much more difficult to secure our freedoms if we cannot look to the courts?

Reform is overdue.”    from Craig Rucker at CFACT….
