Ben Stein: We’re Losing the Freedom Our Fathers Fought For

IT’S HAPPENING RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES!

by Ben Stein   at The American Spectator:

“Night after night, I stay up late watching documentaries about World War II. I’m obsessed with it. Not surprising, since it was the biggest event in the history of the human race. My father was in the Navy during the war, though to this day, I am not sure what he did. My father-in-law served in combat under Patton and was awarded the Silver Star for combat gallantry, before he was 22 years old, fighting hand to hand against the toughest of the tough, Hitler’s S.S., near Zeitlen.

The documentary I am watching right now is The War by Ken Burns. It came out ten years ago or so. I love every part of it. What I love most, though, is the portrayal of a nation totally united behind the goal of securing freedom and defending the Constitution. From every hill and hollow, every tenement and mansion, men and women fought, sacrificed, worked to defeat the incredibly powerful Nazis and Japanese. The pain and struggle that the men, women, and children of this nation went through to preserve our freedoms was literally fantastic.

I watch the men dying in Italian valleys, shot out of the sky above Schweinfurt, and tortured in Japanese prison camps, and I go to sleep deeply saddened. These wonderful people bled and died and cried for our freedom — and now we are throwing it away with both hands at what should be the bastions of freedom — the universities.

The nation’s universities have become no-go zones for people who do not hew to the one-party, anti-American, anti-police, anti-business attitudes of the violent brownshirts. Quiet, scholarly geniuses like Charles Murray and Heather Mac Donald — who dare to suggest that Americans should work for a living, who speak out in defense of the police — are shouted down, shoved, sometimes assaulted, and chased from campuses under guard. Ann Coulter — a long-time friend, staggeringly intelligent and amusing — is not permitted to speak at a University of California, Berkeley, campus, because she makes such witty, shining defenses of our great nation. This is a taxpayer-funded campus.

There’s an atmosphere of terror on campuses across the country. My beloved law school alma mater, mighty Yale, shamed itself recently by blackballing faculty who wanted to keep a sense of humor on the campus.

The formula is simple. Get a few nonwhite students to label a potential speaker a racist, whether or not there is the slightest evidence he or she is. Then bring in the looney left faculty, then bring in the women with fake charges of sexism, and soon you have a mighty avalanche against the speaker. The fascists call themselves anti-fascists, of course. But anyone with eyes and ears can see and hear who’s burning the books.

As far as I know, neither Hitler nor the Japanese ever planned to invade America. Certainly Vietnam didn’t. North Korea is a menace, but a poverty-stricken nation of 22 million is not going to subjugate us and take away our freedom……”   Please read on below:

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.

 

The Importance of Being a Father!

Dennis Prager fan, Bruce Taber sent the beautiful  picture below.

We civilized, that is those of us older than 75,  wonder these days where  the college and university leftist enrolled  savages are coming from, both male and female and everyone in between.   We wonder what  the Black Lives Matter animals and the Madonna  feminazis of the street-left  drink for lunch to arouse their insanity to produce such ignorance and noise so frequently advertised and supported at CNN and the like.

Certainly the feminization of the social sciences at the  American University and the nation’s  Colleges of Education have caused the  abandonment of  teaching knowledge for the advancement of our  human understanding of existence,  environment, and the past.     Certainly these Obama revolutionaries at university and in sanctuary cities   are driven to create armies of  Black Racists, illegal immigrants, and  feminazis of all colors, sexes, shapes and sizes for the coming  “Peoples” revolution.

Atheism and Islamism have replaced JudeoChristianity  as the Leftist nation’s protected religions.

God only knows the number of male black savages, murderers, thieves,  vulgars of all kinds both native and illegals now in charge of geography in so many of our major  cities.    Marriage, the purpose of marriage,  the purpose of raising civilized, well educated, God-fearing off-spring free of drugs and leftist hates  has rapidly been  disappearing from our culture.    Half of our American  white community has been drawn into this same modern snake pit.  They follow politics on CNN and the like.

There is no evidence yet that America has hit ObamaBottom  whether at school, especially with the present feminist hysterics dictating college minds, or anywhere throughout the nation’s Obama sanctuary cities, or  at  CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, PBS, ABC, as well as ratings hungry Fox,  and the nation’s New York Times and Washington Post control over newsprint throughout urban America.

The first and last hope left for our once civilized United States of America still remains within the JudeoChristian  God’s family both human and religious…..a loving, civilized and responsible male father, a loving female mother raising loving, learned, Godfearing children in a traditional democratic society of well disciplined, self reliant, but Godfearing adults who know and care about their neighbors….

It is JudeoChristian Godfearing and learning knowledge we Americans  used to be  raised to rely on during our three centuries of human male growth in leadership and protection……until the anarchic revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, and its Obama/university  feminist and black Racism hate-America revolution revival of the past eight years of cultural collapse.

Most of all, America needs real fathers…..as suggested in the beautiful photo below:

“Matt Walsh is one of the most important voices emerging in our movement for a reason. He cuts through the clutter and tells it like it is with a compelling clarity lacking in our culture today. In this book, Matt sounds the shofar that progressivism is more than a political ideology, it is the heresy of this age. I pray many heed his message.” –Steve Deace, Host of The Steve Deace Show and Conservative Review Contributor

“Matt Walsh is one of the last truth-tellers in America. He doesn’t shy away from controversy, nor does he back down from hard issues.” –Ben Shapiro, editor in chief of The Daily Wire.

Georgia’s Isakson Rallies to Halt US Planned Parenthood Funding

Isakson returns to Senate to cast key vote on Planned Parenthood

by Ted Barrett  at CNN Politics:

“Sen. Johnny Isakson, who is recovering from back surgery, returned to the Capitol Thursday to cast a key vote to help advance a controversial measure related to Planned Parenthood funding.

The 72-year-old Georgia Republican, who also is slowed by Parkinson’s disease, came off a Capitol elevator in a wheelchair with Vice President Mike Pence at his side around 11:30 a.m. ET and headed to the floor where the two cast votes on the measure. The vote had been held open for a full hour so Isakson, who had just landed at Reagan National Airport after a flight from Atlanta, could make it.
Isakson’s vote tied the tally at 50-50 and Pence the broke the tie.
 Their votes were needed because two Republicans — Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski, who are each supporters of Planned Parenthood — voted against it. Republicans have a 52-48 majority and all Democrats voted no…..”   Do read on:

Supreme Court Backs Truth and Reality on Transgender Issue

U.S. top court throws out ruling favoring transgender student

by Lawrence Hurley  at Reuters:

“The move was the latest legal fallout from Trump’s extensive use of executive power in the opening weeks of his presidency and was at least a temporary setback for transgender rights.

The action came after Trump’s administration retracted a directive by former President Barack Obama’s administration telling public schools nationwide to let transgender students use bathrooms matching their gender identity.

Grimm, 17, was born a girl and identifies as male. Grimm, due to graduate from high school in June, sued the Gloucester County School Board to win the right to use the public school’s boys’ bathroom. Grimm argued the school’s refusal violated a federal anti-discrimination law called Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under the law.

The justices sidestepped what would have been the Supreme Court’s first ruling on the issue of transgender rights and canceled arguments that had been scheduled for March 28…..”   Please read on:
