Godless Traditionalism is a Non-Starter

Atheism, while not necessarily a purely modern phenomenon, remains a staple of the Modern aesthetic.  All forms of religious belief are more or less treated with equal amounts of disdain under the neoliberal regime, though the exoticism of alien customs and rites tends to attract a fair share of delusional new-agers and members of the elite who are simply too intelligent to believe in anything.  Religious worship native to the historical roots of the West, particularly Catholicism, draws particular ire from the atheist crowd, though any form of Christianity is fair game for ridicule.

“The Writer is a Senior Official in the Trump Administration.”

Yesterday, The New York Times dropped a controversial anonymous op-ed piece which stated, in just under a thousand words, that there were persons within the Trump administration who were actively sabotaging or otherwise resisting the actions of the President.  The writer claimed to be a senior-ranking official of the administration, and his piece describes how the President doesn’t seem to be fully aware of the efforts to curb his intentions.  It also explains, humorlessly, the erraticism of Trump’s behavior so popularized by the mainstream media.  And the writer, eager to stand on credentials that he’s unwilling to actually bring to light, simultaneously presents this covert splinter cell of political resistance to be well-intentioned patriots who are, presumably, republican loyalists (both small ‘r’ and of the GOP, in this case) rather than agents of the opposition.  It is for the country’s own good, apparently, that the efforts of its President are sabotaged.

The Church is in Full Tilt: The Abuse Scandal

The sexual abuse scandal has erupted from a wildfire into a blazing inferno for the Catholic Church, having broken out on multiple fronts.  In Pennsylvania, the laity is still reeling from the publication of a gargantuan and exhaustive grand jury report that accuses more than three hundred priests of the sexual abuse of minors over a period of more than half a century.  And in Maryland and Washington, DC, the scandalous case of Cardinal McCarrick has taken a huge turn following the publication of an eleven page letter by an ex-Nuncio of the Vatican, Archbishop Carlo Vigano.  Both of these things are related, but not in the way you may at first assume.

Censorship, Freedom, and Liberal Retardation

Free speech is back on the menu, apparently, this time with our favorite Texan, Alex Jones, thrust into the role of protagonist.  Again.

This time it was YouTube, Apple, and Spotify, at first.  Twitter’s founder came under attack by lefties because he hadn’t banned Jones yet, and he even had to issue short statement on his platform defending his decision to keep someone who had not violated the Code of Conduct from being ousted.  Until he gave Jones the boot, too.  And then InfoWars went down for a day or so.  Continue reading “Censorship, Freedom, and Liberal Retardation”

#Skyking

Last weekend, a lone twin-engine Bombardier Q400 got taxied out onto a runway of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and from the cab of the service tractor emerged a 29-year-old of average build and ambition.  Without arising suspicion, he climbed aboard the empty puddle-jumper and roared off down the runway, about an hour away from a very deliberate and intentionally meaningless death.

There’s A New Justice Headed to Town

With the recent nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the left has predictably lost its mind.  Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement announcement struck an ugly chord with the self-appointed defenders of civil liberties—at least those that enshrine the rights of infanticide, sodomy, and religious censorship.  It didn’t matter who Trump was willing to nominate, since after Gorsuch’s nomination, it was clear that Trump wasn’t the left wing New York liberal that his neocon detractors had predicted.  The left was going to protest anyone.
