David French on “Liberalizing”…the Way to Dusty Christian Death

Comment on the following article by David French regarding making folks feel  at home or play when attending Christian Church religious services.

I admit I am a devoted JudeoChristian regarding thought, word, and deed.  However, I am unChurched….and have been for 60 years or more…..a person who loved the beauty and word of Sunday Church services as a child and young man.

I also loved and do still love the beautiful language and its messages in the King James Bible.

Two years ago Christmas Day I attended my first Christmas Day service in more than 60 years, hoping, “praying”,  the music and spirit and  joy of the day, reviewing the miracle  of birth and life  and struggle for goodness that was indoctrinated so profoundly  unto me from all fronts as a boy and teenager,  would return in spirit.

Fewer than half of the several hundred parish visitors that morning were able to sing the hymn, “Hark, The Herald Angels Sing” to open the service.   Within five minutes of some words of welcome, a subordinate pastor invited the audience to stand and sing along, “Happy Birthday Jesus”.

I left immediately, but very quietly.

I have in the past 40 years however attended two Christian services unmatched in language, unmatched  in  beauty for  eye and ear and imagination of the mind, chants from its  priests, its  choir, its ancient mysticism, its fragrance all causing  inspiration and wonder, feeling you are in touch with the countless yesterdays of a thousand years of worship and 75 years  Socialist-Communist evil.

Both were Russian Orthodox….one in New York City at Manhattan’s St. Nicholas Cathedral, and the other on a Sunday in  October, 1990 in Kiev  where in attendance I saw thousands upon thousands of Ukrainians, defying their Communist dictators,  lined up for blocks, holding their  lit candles, awaiting their turn to enter God’s house for blessings and God’s spirit.   No one spoke a word while waiting.

Liberals can be as dangerous to liberty as Leftists.   Please read the following article by David French sent by Mark Waldeland:

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.

 

Twila Brase and the Health Law Makers

The Simplicity of Real Repeal…….by Twila Brase of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom
CCHF’s Twila Brase Says 2,700 Pages of a Bad Law and 40,000 Pages of Intrusive Government Regulations Can Be Fully Repealed with Just a Few Words 
Lawmakers are still squabbling about health care, weeks after the American Health Care Act—a supposed replacement bill to the Affordable Care Act—failed in the House on March 24. House Speaker Paul Ryan told The Washington Post that Republicans will continue pushing for an overhaul of the nation’s health care system.The answer, says Twila Brase, president and co-founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org), is not more complicated language, intricate mandates and complex regulations. But instead, true change can happen when lawmakers learn what real repeal language looks like.

“The language in a bill that would truly repeal the Affordable Care Act is simple and straight-forward,” Brase said. “Not only did the ill-fated American Health Care Act fail to repeal Obamacare, it didn’t even replace it. The Affordable Care Act consists of 2,700 pages along with 40,000 pages of regulations, memos and guidance documents. Even so, very simple language could repeal it all. Bills with this simple repeal language are already in existence and deserve to be considered or revisited.”

Brase said lawmakers must take a serious look at the two-page bill from Congressman Mo Brooks (R.-Ala.). H.R. 1718, the “Obamacare Repeal Act,” uses a single sentence to fully repeal this damaging health care law. “Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill states, according to AL.com.

CCHF is urging lawmakers who are interested in returning real health freedom to Americans to look at Brooks’ proposed measure, along with the repeal language in two past bills that hit the nail on the head when it comes to simplicity.

The Fascism in Today’s Soup of Sour Americans

After eight years of Socialist-Fascist Saul Alinsky’s antiAmerican  student, Barack Hussein Obama’s leftist reign over the United States of America as the struggling nation’s  president, how are we Americans doing?

“Well?”  Or, “well” we now have Obama’s  leftist fascist Democrat Party filled with human hyenas, bodies and noises,  led by  New Yorker, Charles Schumer….at one time an honorable Jewish Senator from New York who now  controls the voting habits of 200 plus Congressional unAmericans slavishly obeying his dictates to sabotage the faithful and fair elected American Congress and Presidency whenever and where ever possible.

This is a  new brand of fascism for our America.

Most of my 83 years of life have been spent in our  democratic nation led by  two major democracy oriented political parties who, once in Washington, were able and employed men generally well educated or at least well  learned in their field, Godfearing,  and determined to solve problems as citizens of one Nation.

The believed in the Federal Constitution, were JudeoChristians, did not smoke or chew  marijuana, or distribute their sex in any number of directions.  Few, if any were ‘illegal’; nearly none  uneducated, troubled foreign speakers from  in or out of the illegal drug trade, invading the country with bodies filling fascist ‘Sanctuary Cities’ by the millions, stored  where they are nursed and trained to vote and sell things fascist Democrat forever.

Until the sex, drug, atheist, ‘student’, antiWar, antiAmerican  rebellions beginning in the 1960s, Americans were American…..with the exception of communists and extreme socialists like Howard Zin, Noam Chomsky, Alan Dershowitz who proudly wrecked the  once honorable American Civil Liberty Union…..and my today’s American  hero, but then a half century ago communist, David Horowitz,  before his enlightening conversion to seek, preach,  and defend freedom for America with  wisdom and foresight similar to  of the JudeoChristian thinkers and  forefathers who laid out the building blocks to create the foundation for the American experiment with Liberty,  In God We Trust, and E Pluribus Unum…..Thank you, Dennis Prager.

Yes, until recently, that is, roughly over the last forty years,  Americans of political or any other note  were usually  white and male…..and thank God, none  were  ditzy-chicks, until  the  Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, and Andrea Dworkin crowd gave us  Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, and Barbra Boxer and forty or more by numbers of their ilk in Congress, in print, at college from coast to coast, and  at NBC, CBS, MSNBC, PBS, ABC of all sexes, colors, shapes and sizes.

These leftist Democrat folks, at least the ones still living,  cherish their fascism.  They enroll whenever to do whatever to sabotage American freedom and honesty.   Their atheism guides them….since there is nothing particularly good, there is room for nearly everything bad…..in their lust to gain fascist power.

Today,  as I write this note to you, our American Republican  Party is scheduled to be voting on some kind of health care replacement program  for the leftist fascistic creation of collapsing Obamacare….. dictated by    former president Barack Hussein Obama in 2009 as an  introduction to control America by uniting feminists, black racists, immigrant Hispanics, (the more illegal the freer, the  better, leftist Jews, the usuals,  and other established urban wealthy and those who drink fascist Starbuck coffee into one political party for their better fascist one party built America forever.

Unlike today’s fascist Democrats, Republicans still squabble over matters, details vital to the survival of  any nation devoted to free expression.   Fascists, both Democrats everywhere  and the several at Fox and the some at  Wall Street Journal don’t trust squabble.   They prefer yesterday’s Germanic certainty…and one Party conquers all:  The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Post, Boston Globe, Minneapolis Strib, Chicago Tribune, etcetera, are  all the same print and noise:  all  HATE anything new, (even Fox News)….it’s too democratic, too foreign,  too freedom-oriented, too open to new, perhaps better ideas from new folks….THEY ARE CREATURES OF HABIT, HATE THE UNKNOWN……..and what happened to their  fascistic habits of today’s America this yesterday’s  November 8, 2016?

“Businessman” DONALD J. TRUMP arrived…..and has upset fascism in academic America, journalistic America,  black racist America,  feminism America,  socialist America, in the FOREIGNERS’ INVASIONS of America, and has profoundly disturbed the fascists selling the  Democrat Party to America.

I do not yet know  the result of today’s House vote regarding the future of our Nation’s foul Obamacare “health system”, or  its replacement.  I still belong to the same Health Care system begun as “Group Health” more than 50 years ago and raised my family when doctors were real doctors, not secretaries as they seem to be today….

The Left’s establishment is thrilled,  certain Donald J. Trump has messed up the mess which their hero, the foreigner, but suave, clever, devious Obama had dishonestly sold and  created eight years ago.  They cheer at the prospect that in nearly every corner of the country’s communication system Donald J. Trump has failed to perform.    His approval ratings, their cartels  tell us, are around 38%.

We love you Donald….Just as you are….Help rid America of FAKE NEWS!

Postscript:  President Trump this afternoon apparently withdrew the Obamacare replacement piece for lack of vote to carry Ryancare on  to the Senate.   Good….Ryancare deserved to disappear.   Naturally, fake news at CNN, MSNBC, and so on, will claim this event is proof of the weakness of the 45th American president to control his flock.  Unlike today’s fascist Democrats, Republicans usually vote as individuals rather than force to vote as flocks.

Prior to the arrival of America’s first neofascist to the White House, Republicans and Democrats were not afraid of working out important legislation together.  That is what I was used to seeing until this Hun showed up to run the White House.

ObamaCare was made law entirely by Democrat Party votes by demand…..Remember the loon of loons, Nancy Pelosi’s reminder that ObamaCare had to be passed before we saw what was in the bill.
