NRA Man Tells His Story Pursuing Texas Murderer

SELF-HELP, TEXAS STYLE: STEPHEN WILLEFORD EDITION

by Scott Johnson at PowerLine:

To learn the lessons of the Sutherland Springs massacre we must take into account the examples of Johnnie Longendorff and Stephen Willeford. In his column today, Rich Lowry calls them “two bystanders who refused to stand by.” Thank God, Willeford was within the sound of the massacre: “When Stephen Willeford, 55, heard of the shooting, he left his house barefoot with his AR-15 and started exchanging fire with Kelley outside the church. An expert shot, Willeford hit Kelley and reportedly aimed for the gaps on his body armor.”

I couldn’t find an interview with Willeford yesterday, but Steven Crowder tracked him down to get the story from the man himself (video below). It is instructive, inspirational and humbling all at the same time. More here.

America: Human Life Begins a Conception: DEAL WITH IT!

by Daniel Payne at the Federalist           (Article sent by Mark Waldeland:)

“At FiveThirtyEight, Christine Aschwanden writes: “The GOP’s Abortion Ban Is About Politics, Not Science.” She’s half-right, though not in the way she thinks.

Before we get to that, it is worth reflecting on this simple fact: the progressive contribution to the modern abortion debate is, on average, the most science-free political discourse you’re apt to find. The Left is given to declaring that conservatives are generally “anti-science,” because some fundamentalist Christians don’t believe in evolution and many conservatives don’t believe we can accurately predict what the global average temperature will be in 200 years compared to a 1965 baseline.

“Science Is Real,” a popular liberal yard sign declares. Yet there is no more anti-science position than that of the mainstream liberal stance on abortion. It is textbook intellectual Luddism dressed up as informed political dialogue.

We’re Interested in Fantasy, Not Religion

Consider Cecile Richards, the Grand Master of American abortion rights herself. When asked when life begins, she replied: “For me, life [for my children] began when I delivered them.” Hillary Clinton, a former senator and presidential candidate who came very close to inhabiting the Oval Office, declared several years ago: “I believe the potential for life begins at conception.”

A few years ago, a reporter asked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi: “Is an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver a human being?” Pelosi explicitly refused to answer this simple tautological question, telling the reporter: “I think I know more about this subject than you, with all due respect.”

These answers are wrong, and demonstrably so, as we’ll see below. But if it were Republicans and conservatives opining so evasively and illiterately about basic scientific matters, then the media coverage would be wall-to-wall and gleefully destructive, as it was with Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comments. Yet liberals tend to get a pass on their anti-science abortion positions.

When Does Human Life Begin, Again?

That brings us to the current “abortion ban” working its way through Congress. At FiveThirtyEight, Aschwanden points out that the science underpinning the debate—that unborn humans can feel pain as early as 20 weeks—is disputed. This is entirely true. But Aschwanden claims the entire discussion is less about the science of fetal pain and more about the ultimate moral facts of abortion itself:

[T]his particular debate over what the science does and doesn’t show is largely a distraction, because what we have here isn’t a scientific debate, but a moral one. Each side is using science to support age-old value judgments about when life begins and how the rights of a pregnant person are weighed against the rights that a fetus may or may not have; new scientific evidence is unlikely to change many minds.

National Right to Life believes human life begins when an egg is fertilized, and several of the bill’s other proponents have also been clear that they’d like to ban abortion altogether. For example, a 2010 brief about fetal pain published by the Family Research Council, another anti-abortion group and supporter of the bill, states that, ‘The humanness of the unborn child is not contingent on its capacity for pain. Whether or not an unborn child can feel pain is irrelevant to the respect that an unborn person deserves.’

“National Right to Life believes human life begins when an egg is fertilized.” You will notice this is stated as if it were in dispute, a partisan political position rather than as settled a scientific matter as the existence of gravity or the Doppler effect. We are supposed to believe, it seems, that the idea that human life begins at conception is merely a policy position, something up for debate, a scientific fact still vigorously debated in universities, labs, and medical conferences across the world.

It is not. Human life begins at conception (“When an egg is fertilized,” as the phrase goes). To pretend as if this is one hazy opinion among many, rather than an established fact underpinning the foundation of human biological science, is singularly bizarre, insofar as it does not square with what we know about allogamy, embryogenesis, embryology, mitosis, and everything else concerning the generative origin of our species.

Claim that the sun revolves around the earth and you’ll be laughed out of the room. Claim that your child suddenly sprang into existence on the day of his birth, on the other hand, and you’ll be given a lucrative position at the head of America’s largest abortion mill.

The Science Is Settled

The actual science on the matter if simple, elegant, easy to understand and easy to explain. Dr. Maureen Condic, an associate professor of neurobiology and anatomy at the University of Utah’s School of Medicine, provides us with a well-written essay on the matter at the Charlotte Lozier Institute:” …….please read on below:

Today’s American Schools are the Greatest of Contemporary Frauds

I live in modest Minnetonka, Minnesota.   Our school district is in next door Hopkins which once upon a time had a well earned fairly good reputation for organization, student control, and an average degree of providing knowledge.  It used to be a “barely” Republican community then…..in other words, average American.

Today it is quite Democrat, Democrat preaching, which means teaching knowledge is now banned……for the sake of becoming happy socialists thinking the same nothing.

My school district usually asks voters for more money about  every two years.   Expenses rise, programs get pricier, teachers get lazier making more money and teach the less  they know.   THE TEACHING OF KNOWLEDGE IN SCHOOL HAS ABOUT DISAPPEARED.   FEMINIZED FEELINGS ARE IN THE AIR.

Our school district bosses,  those who are supposed to be responsible for developing knowledgeable students, this year want more money to spend upon, and I quote from their ad sent to us tax payers  in their  Modern  “Leftese” Language:

“FLEXIBLE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS OPEN UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES”….(note, there is no mention of knowledge, learning history, learning language or science, learning anything.  An emphasis statement continues:  “I WANT TO INCREASE THE ENGAGEMENT OF MY ROOM TO 100 PERCENT, WITH A FLEXIBLE CLASSROOM, I AM GETTING MORE QUALITY WORK FROM ALL MY KIDS AND THE ENGAGEMENT IS MUCH HIGHER.”   (It wasn’t made clear where the “I” came from.)

This year these neoSoviet specialists are selling (“embracing”) in their language, “FLEXIBLE CLASSROOMS TO IMPROVE STUDENT OUTCOMES.  THE DISTRICT PLANS TO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT TEACHERS WHO HAVE AN INTEREST IN TRANSFORMING THEIR “CLASSROOMS”…..(quotes added for my emphasis)

and further this Hopkins School District update for massing more money for no learnings:  “I WANT TO INCREASE THE ENGAGEMENT OF MY ROOM TO 100 PERCENT, AND WITH A FLEXIBLE CLASSROOM, I AM GETTING MORE QUALITY WORK FROM ALL MY KIDS, AND THE ENGAGEMENT IS MUCH HIGHER”…….all this written in primitive female English where feelings, not knowledge overwhelm.   What do you think the language means?

It could come from the  four pictures of radiant color in the sales piece  showing youngsters lying on their belly with a book nearby, slouching on a bench, reading at a table, and another at a desk,  with a single  subtitle written for all:

“IN A FLEXIBLE CLASSROOM, STUDENTS CHOOSE THE SPACE THAT WORKS BEST FOR THEIR LEARNING”

The important matter here is the word “learning” reduced to how an immature human body behaves when positioned  in various physical posturings,   these modern Soviets tell us…..while certain they’ll get their money for poorer learning every year the teaching staff knows less and less and less knowledge.

I began my school experience in public school kindergarten  in St. Paul, Minnesota nearly 80 years ago.   Classrooms through eighth grade  were filled by between 35 and 40 students, with  36 sitting erect at fixed permanent desks 6 to each 6 rows.  Others sat at the movables brought in by the janitor when needed. It was wartime.

Males were in charge of the culture then.   Their discipline reigned supreme making it possible for these single women with no children, MAGNIFICENTLY LEARNED IN THEIR FIELDS, TAUGHT FROM KNOWLEDGE TO CONVEY KNOWLEDGE.

I loved them.  I loved being taught knowledge.  I was born curious, loved everything they taught, but I couldn’t read story books.   Encyclopedias,  newspapers were fine.   Their sentences were usually short and snappy.   It was wartime.  I could read all of the headlines, maps, and the  cut lines to pictures in the St. Paul  Sunday paper WAR picture  section beginning with battle of Midway.  I immediately fell in love with maps and began collecting them in every manner possible when I was eight.  (It turned out I was terribly dyslexic. It hadn’t been discovered yet.  These old maids picked on me whenever  reading stories arrived.   They’d poke their fore finger three inches from my nose while firmly averring:  “THERE ARE TWO REASONS, GLENN RAY, YOU MUST LEARN KNOWLEDGE!    ONE, IT WILL HELP YOU BECOME CLOSER TO GOD FOR GOD KNOW ALL THINGS….AND TWO, IT WILL HELP YOU MAKE A BETTER CHOICE WHEN YOU VOTE AT THE BALLOT BOX!

“God, and Country” meant something in school and country then.   These were the basics in my Sunday School teachings as well….usually taught by women, as well.

Today’s functionary educational con artists will sell you anything but knowledge.  They produce bored, uninspired, uninformed, unknowledgeable  kids at a time when  much knowledge is desperately required.

The Hopkins school cons are asking us Hopkins-Minnetonka tax payers to fund a new system of learning pending the position of student body with  furniture,  slouching,  lying, resting, perhaps sleeping or reading while picking ones nose, maybe even standing or walking around if such comes to ‘feeling’s.  BUT, FORGET LEARNING KNOWLEDGE…IT’S TOO MASCULINE AND WHITE FOR AMERICA!!!!

Ten percent of the voters will vote yes…..the know nothings will win anyway.  THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO!

Megyn Kelly, Gretchen Carlson, and the 200 Fems “dancing” with Harvey Weinstein World

I have had very little sympathy for feminist whining about “sex for advancement” arrangements these  past 50 years of expanding  feminism and its feminazi extremes since the American slut-for-fun  revolution of the late 1960s.      Feminists demand  special rights.  Government must take care of them.  They demand to be man’s equal in every way, claiming anything short of this ‘equalness’ is slavery…..or something close.

Feminized America has done everything it can to feminize its males since those 1960s.  It is a socialist extreme wanting to be made ‘equal’, a new weapon in America to create a society of  government deemed  supreme equality dictated by an Obamaling-like  led elite Democrat Party to  rid deplorables and such male workers from the culture, from existence.

Feminists of all shapes, colors, sexes, and sizes write a lot of books these days.   As the “feminist rights for  sex” revolution of the 1960 expanded, females began to wear less and less cloth with tighter and tighter hugging of their female  parts on public  beaches and at university as their ‘freedoms’ to be man’s equal or even “superior” as some of the wilder, colder profess.

Hanoi Jane Fonda claimed she became a victim of Harvey Weinstein 40 or 50 years ago….she recently remembered.

Nearly a hundred of these feminist animals have claimed to be Weinstein victims……”but, we’re too….” what? too nervous to report their sufferings to authorities immediately after the assault?  Was it really an assault?  Was there playtime, too?  If these feminists  are man’s equal on all fronts,  as so many feminized claim,  why did they allow themselves to remain in silence for years, while on their way to popular success and the money which went with it?

I happen to have known the Gretchen Carlson family years before her victory at the Miss America Pageant.   Gretchen’s two brothers played competitive tennis as did my younger son.  Her mother followed her brothers matches regularly, but her drive in life was to make her Gretchen special…..that was evident by deed and conversation.  Money was no object…..and the family was classically fine Christian in its breeding.

I spent a full hour at CSpan yesterday watching Gretchen preach and be interviewed by another feminist frothing in anger about male sexual behavior.   She is apparently a feminist now.  She had been at Fox and had issues with boss,  Roger Ailes, advances….eight or so years ago.   Ailes has recently died but   had been forced to leave his slot at Fox due to other charges of  misdeeds  with women.

Feminized Gretchen has written a book:  “BE FIERCE:  STOP HARASSMENT AND TAKE YOUR POWER BACK”…..she wows!

Why did  these ‘victims’, including Gretchen,  not go to authorities immediately after  their  “ordeals”?   If they did and stories ignored, why then didn’t they press charges?

The human being is an animal, a thinking animal.   The human female animal is NOT a carbon copy of the human male…not even close.   She is a very different human animal generally  in goals, habits, learnings, feelings, and behavior.

She is not born to be a killer, nor a sexual predator.  She is born an enticer, a charmer, to be a mother and protected by a human male….at least until the rise of the butch ‘nasty’ generation.

But, she is also born ditsy, emotion driven, confused genetically  by feelings often dominating rather  than seeking truth and its strength so vital in the drive to problem solve.

American Lloyd Marcus to Black Leftists: “LET MY PEOPLE GO!”

The Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast: The Great Black Deception

By Lloyd Marcus at American Thinker:
..

“Flipping through my TV channels, I stumbled upon the 2017 Congressional Black Caucus Annual Prayer Breakfast on the Word Network; the world’s largest black religious channel. This year’s theme was, “And Still I Rise”.

Folks, I thought, “Oh my gosh, these people have no shame.” This breakfast was all about exploiting black’s Christian heritage to deceive them for the purpose of furthering Leftists’ anti-Christian agenda. Every musical performance praised Jesus. Leftists despise Jesus, aggressively seeking to ban the God of Christianity from the public square. Several of the all-Democrat speakers quoted the Bible to strengthen their political deceptions. The truth is, quoting the Bible is as repulsive to Leftists as showing Dracula the cross.

I thought, does anyone in that hall know Obama led a leftist war on Christianity, making him the most anti-Christian president in U.S. history? Do y’all know the 2017 Women’s March and Trump resisters whom you’ve praised at this breakfast seek to continue the Leftists’ war on Christianity?

The CBC Prayer Breakfast had nothing to do with Jesus or spreading His Love. Quite the opposite. It was about spreading hate for police, strengthening the Trump resistance, and strengthening black’s bogus belief that they are victims in America. The breakfast was also about despicably instilling hate and fear to register new Democrat voters.

Oh, how I wish I could grab my fellow black Americans by their collar and slap them into reality. America is the greatest land of opportunity on this planet for all who choose to go for it. Forget the Democrat/Leftist victim nonsense and pursue your dreams.

My 89-year-old black dad was extremely active in the early civil rights movement. As a kid, I accompanied Dad to the 1963 March on Washington at which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his remarkable, “I Have a Dream” speech. The modern civil rights movement has abandoned the vision of unity articulated by Dr. King in his speech, “I have a dream that one day right there in Alabama little black boys and little black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.” Oh, how the civil rights movement has fallen.

Though opposed by his peers, Dr. King stood firm on the principle of nonviolent activism. Today, Democrats praise violent hate groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Obama honored Black Lives Matter at the White House. You have not heard a single word of criticism from the CBC against Black Lives Matter calling for the killing of cops and whites.

Dad pressured/shamed me and my four younger siblings into voting and joining the NAACP. Dad said, “A lot of folks suffered and died to give y’all the right to vote.”

As a young man in the 1970s, I joined the NAACP. Upon attending my first meeting, I thought, “What is wrong with these people?” It felt like I stepped back into 1950s. The vibe was depressing. I was surrounded by long-faced blacks singing, “We Shall Over Come.” I commented to Dad that the meeting felt like I walked through a time warp into days of black misery. Dad chuckled.

I was a young black man enjoying the fruits of Dad’s and his fellow civil rights activist’s labors. I attended the mostly white Maryland Institute College of Art on scholarships. I was the first black graphic designer employed at WJZ-TV, ABC affiliate in Baltimore. Life was good. But the folks at the NAACP meeting were sad, depressed and angry; acting as though black slavery was alive and well in America.

Watching the 2017 CBC Prayer Breakfast, I witnessed the same absurd lie that America is still a hellhole of racism for blacks. The “And Still I Rise” theme means blacks stand strong despite being persecuted daily in America.

All that hate promoted at the Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast was insidiously shrouded in Christianity. As a Christian, I found the so-called “prayer breakfast” a sad, evil deception.

As a black American, in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I command Leftists to, “Let my people go!”
