Don Boys Common Sense for Today Sat, 26 Nov 2022 20:00:06 +0000 en-US hourly 1 I Don’t Like Donald Trump But May Vote For Him in 2024 With all His Reprehensible Baggage! Sat, 26 Nov 2022 20:00:06 +0000 By Don Boys, Ph.D.

The hatred expressed for Trump and all America Firsters by the self-righteous and falsely tolerant people in the world is reminiscent of the worst brutality, barbarism, and bloodshed of history. The acceleration of Democrat-sponsored baby-killing, high taxes, offensive regulations on business owners and individual citizens, stratospheric inflation, public perversion and transgenderism, invasion of our borders, etc., will only accelerate if a Democrat is elected in 2024. The leftist loonies (the BLM and Antifa crowd) want a revolution where they are in control, the homes are decimated, the churches are powerless, and the poor are forever poor and always vote Democrat.

Former President Donald Trump offered himself as the antidote to the above when he announced as a candidate for President in 2024. Without any political experience, he was elected in 2016 and fulfilled many promises, unlike any other President. His America First agenda and his theme of Make America Great Again resonated with patriotic Americans.

I was slow to support him because he appeared to be rude, crude, and even lewd regarding women. He often caused problems with his arrogance and unwarranted, unnecessary, and unseemly attacks on people who disagreed with him. He seems to lack common sense and decency in dealing with critics while some close to him declare he is sensitive to others.

My first choice in 2016 was Cruz; however, that was not to be. America turned to Trump, who made bold promises and managed to keep most of them. Trump was not politically astute, which was clear by not permitting his rough edges to be smoothed. He was too boisterous, too braggadocio, and too bombastic. He refused to be corrected because he thought he was never wrong. He was very careless with his highest appointments, one of my concerns with his wisdom.

In 2017, Donald Trump came with promises of change, and it’s no wonder that his largest share of voters were evangelicals who hoped he would reverse all of Obama’s anti-family and abortion policies. Although Trump did a good job of reversing some bad abortion and other policies, he refused to deal with homosexual “marriage” and even promoted it globally!

If re-elected, it is expected that he would attempt to make sodomy great again. Don’t think ancient Sodom would think that wise. For sure, it would be disgusting, divisive, and disruptive—not what any thoughtful leader wants.

Trump appointed openly homosexual Richard Grenell to serve as the United States Ambassador to Germany from 2018 to 2020. He is a graduate of Evangel University (Assembly of God school in Springfield, Missouri) and Harvard. He lives with a “domestic partner.” He said, “I’m a better Christian for being gay.” His appointment was a slap in the face of every decent person and Christian in America.

I will forgive that major blunder if convinced Trump will “save America.” If another candidate is more promising, I will vote for him.

Trump is proud of his production of the COVID vaccines that have now been shot into the arms of about 6 billion people around the world. I think it will prove to be, if not already, the worst health decision of any American President.

However, he kept his word, especially in putting America first. I can live with him unless another candidate convinces me he or she will make America great again and put America first in every decision made.

There will be other Republican candidates for the presidency, and that could be healthy. Let each one make his or her pitch and criticize each other, permitting us to decide whom to trust to really make America great again.

Trump or any other Republican can win the presidency if he makes the following promises—

My fellow Americans:

America will adhere to a new foreign policy that will keep Americans safe and solve the problem of terrorism. We will return to our roots and follow the wise advice of our Founding Fathers. We will no longer get entangled in foreign alliances. We will no longer meddle in the affairs of other nations nor consider ourselves the policeman of the world. We will always consider first our national interests. We will not presume that we know what is best for other countries. What may be best for us may not be best for them.

We will no longer try to topple governments as we did in Ukraine in 2014 and set up democracies. Of course, we will always encourage liberty everywhere. We will not carpet-bomb cities filled with innocent civilians. We do not believe “total war” is morally right or militarily justified. However, be assured those culpable individuals who attack America will be punished as a deterrent to others.

On my first day in office, I will inform the Mexican Government that they have two weeks to stop the constant flow of illegal aliens crashing our border. If not, the U.S. has many options to help them change their minds and border policy. Furthermore, I will have the Mexican cartels declared as terrorist groups and if the Mexicans can’t or won’t immediately stop the deadly drugs flowing into our nation, I will have our elite troops handle the problem.

Moreover, I will authorize the use of troops on our southern border to secure that border and arrest, fingerprint, and photograph each illegal alien before he or she is deposited forthwith back in Mexico. Any second offenders will be imprisoned and put to work on a Texas or Arizona work or chain gang. Furthermore, any American firm that knowingly hires an illegal alien will be heavily fined. Following a second offense, their business license will be revoked.

Furthermore, I will authorize federal authorities to cooperate with state officials to apprehend all illegal aliens and remove them to the southern border when they can return home.

Also, I will shut the welfare window. No more foreign aid to any nation. We may decide in the future that it is in our best interest to help some nation, but it will be temporary and as unusual as snow in July.

There are 200,000 troops stationed in 177 countries throughout the world, and we will start bringing them home. They will be sent to foreign nations only in event of declared war or in the interests of the U.S. This is not isolationism, but it is an America First policy. Any other policy is insane. Japan, Germany, and the other nations where our troops are stationed must now protect themselves or depend on NATO and similar groups.

Americans don’t hate Muslims or anyone else since it is wrong and unproductive to hate; however, we will no longer plead with Muslims, at home and abroad, to love us. We will no longer express guilt and self-loathing. Federal officials will no longer try to prove that Americans are not racists. It is up to Muslims to prove they are not terrorists!

As to the Middle East, we don’t know what is best! Israel has been a long-time friend of the U.S. and I proved that by moving our embassy to Jerusalem. We will support their right to exist within secure borders and support their right to defend themselves against those who want to “drive them into the sea.” We will not support a Palestinian state carved out of Israel but would support a separate state if it is carved out of surrounding Muslim-dominated nations.

We have disagreements with both the Israelis and the Palestinians. They have both acted uncivilized, unreliable, and undemocratic. They must settle their own affairs, with or without the assistance of surrounding nations. I pray to the God of the Bible that they will solve their differences, but they will do so without U.S. dominance or interference.

As to our reliance on Middle East oil, I will on my first day authorize drilling in Alaska, the Gulf of Mexico, and off the coast of California. At that time, I will authorize the opening of the Keystone XL pipeline and its extension. I will also immediately expand the mining of our vast coal supplies.

We will try to be sensitive to the environment and its impact on the climate; however, I believe that people are more precious than plants or bugs or snakes or fish, or spotted owls. Our drilling equipment may cause a caribou here and there to abort her young, or a bear may singe its rear end on our pipeline, but we will live with those tragedies.

American oil will flow. Moreover, of course, we will still buy oil from South America and even Middle Eastern nations; however, we will not buy oil from states that support terrorists. They can pour their excess oil over their pancakes each morning for all we care. Or drink it! This government will no longer pretend that terrorist leaders, kings, dictators, etc., are gracious gentlemen, nor will American officials shake their hands while smiling like idiots.

We will encourage American entrepreneurs through tax incentives and other measures to pursue the development of alternative fuels.

Individual households and businesses can be assured that taxes will be cut, not raised, while we pay off our national debt by eliminating the Energy Department, Commerce Department, Education Department, and hundreds of unnecessary and overlapping commissions that harass and limit private enterprise. Government assistance will be ended or curtailed to only the neediest cases.

We have some difficult days ahead that will require an adjustment by all of us. Nevertheless, we see a bright future after a few years of sacrifice. This administration will keep you informed since you are the Boss. You fund our world travels and generous salaries as you do for all Federal employees.

If elected in 2024, I will take the job seriously; therefore, we promise that any further bills that come to the Oval Office from Congress must meet five criteria to qualify for passage: It must be constitutional. It must be necessary. We must be able to afford the proposed law. It must not expand government and limit individual liberty. The last criterion is that it must not undermine the family, decency, and general morality. If a bill does not pass those five criteria, it will not get the required signature.

No doubt there are knees jerking all across America (left ones, of course), and those people can cast their vote for new leadership and these policies in the next election. Until then, learn to live with it. When I am re-elected, I will do as I have promised. And may the God of the Bible bless America! Finally, during this Christmas season, when we honor the birth of Jesus Christ, who died to provide a way of salvation for sinners, I wish the best for you and your family. Good night to everyone.

Of course, like former Presidents Bush, Obama, and Biden, Trump does not have the convictions, courage, or character to make such a statement; however, he could probably win if he espouses most of it. So could any Republican—though none have the backbone to make the speech.

It seems all politicians need a spinal transplant, especially our next President!

COVID Truth Must Not be Sacrificed on the Altar of a Pretended Superiority! Sat, 19 Nov 2022 19:32:37 +0000 By Don Boys, Ph.D.

Truth, any truth, must never be sacrificed for any reason, especially when millions of lives are at risk.

All sincere, honest, concerned Americans should be aware of the massive corruption in the health industry before making judgments about medical treatment, drugs, COVID, and other related issues. The corruption evidence is overwhelming to the extent of nausea. Only the most docile zealots will refuse to be convinced and the most brain-dead will even refuse to consider the possibility of corruption. Such people are useful idiots that political, medical, and religious tyrants court, coerce, and convert.

True Believers (in the false federal medical narrative) tell us there are some errors coming from medical critics of the CDC, FDA, etc., but that is not the issue. Everyone, in every profession, has some errors because of carelessness, ego, incompetence, drug use, etc. But then, that would also be true of the federal physicians who, for the most part, have never treated a patient for anything.

The dubious history of vaccine makers is cause for alertness, awareness, and alarm. All four major companies making COVID vaccines are/have either: (1) Never produced a successful vaccine before COVID (Moderna and Johnson & Johnson), (2) Are serial felons (Pfizer and Astra Zeneca), (3) Are both (Johnson & Johnson).

Moreover, decades ago, the U.S. Congress gave blanket legal immunity to all vaccine companies. That means they cannot be sued for a dangerous drug they produce. Wonder why they need such special protection that other industries would not even consider asking for. Principled people want to be held accountable and taxpayers who fund various projects demand it.

Moderna’s website promises mRNA, also called messenger RNA, “delivers the instructions your body needs to potentially prevent, treat, or cure a disease.” Not in the real world. Numerous fully vaccinated people have been repeatedly infected with COVID. A shocking Israeli study revealed vaccinated individuals were about six times more likely to get a COVID infection and seven times more likely to have symptoms than those who  were unvaccinated and have natural immunity. So, what were the benefits of the COVID passport?

Maybe political power and citizen control.

In light of the above facts, we are told to get vaccinated even if we already had COVID but that is for the purpose of selling the vaccine.  Why should those who survive a COVID infection get a dubious, untested vaccine that doesn’t work? Such action is totally unnecessary because a study by the Yale School of Public Health offers evidence that “the immunity acquired by COVID-19 infection is superior to the immunity from vaccination.” Yet, the CDC’s website is still demanding vaccines for such people.

Gotta get those vaccines off the shelves and into warm shoulders.

We were told by Biden, Fauci, and many celebrities (who are automatically health experts), etc., “Get the shot, and you will not get COVID.” Later, when everyone knew health officials were infected twice after they were fully vaccinated, we were weakly promised, “Well, you won’t be hospitalized, or if you do, you won’t die.” Moreover, we were promised we could not infect others following our vaccinations. The experts were wrong, wrong, wrong, yet there have been no apologies, explanations, or accountability.

But then, it seems accountability is for the unwashed hoi polloi, not august federal officials.

Sounds to me as if the city slickers are pulling another fast one on their country cousins.

A highly reputable medical official admitted, “The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.” That was said by Arnold Seymour Relman, Harvard Professor of Medicine and Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal from 1977 to 1991.

Additionally, for decades the scandal of the revolving door routine has been known as top federal health officials retire from office and take lucrative positions with Big Pharma. I wrote about that colossal scandal here and here.

Nevertheless, everyone is expected to expose their shoulder and have a hastily produced substance injected into their bodies when no, I repeat, no testing for long-term detrimental, dangerous, and deadly side effects has been done, as every sane person admits. Last week, the Daily Mail reported that Moderna and Pfizer “will investigate whether their shots cause long-term issues. It will be the first trial to determine long-term impacts of the vaccine on the population.” Well, it seems to me they are a little late. The shot-takers could have used that information before deciding to get the “safe and effective” jab.

A gun blast cannot be unshot, a bell cannot be unrung, and a vaccination cannot be untaken.

Furthermore, historically vaccines were given to people who were at risk, but with COVID, the world (literally) is expected to be vaccinated—even children who are almost without risk. Moreover, because of the inherent risks, you also don’t plan to vaccinate millions of healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.

Our well-paid federal health officials even changed the vaccination concept. In the old days, a vaccine was to actually prevent a sickness and its transmission. Not today. A vaccine is now expected to trigger an “immune response,” which may or may not prevent disease.

Such health officials are only slightly above carnival pitchmen. They tell us to “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” Just believe what we tell you. Even Dorothy, (her dog, Toto), the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Lion knew what appeared normal was abnormal. Even Dorothy’s dog knew something was wrong and pulled back the curtain to reveal the chicanery. The dog in The Wizard of Oz was more astute than the vaccine takers who don’t inspect, investigate, and inquire into this serious subject.  

Vaccine pitchmen told us, “The vaccines will not harm you in any way.” However, that is not always true. A 58-year-old Florida doctor took the COVID-19 vaccine and died two weeks later. Dr. Jerry L. Spivak, an expert on blood disorders at Johns Hopkins University, told The New York Times, “I think it is a medical certainty that the vaccine was related.”

What about the insurance companies that have never seen such an increase in young, apparently healthy young people who have died? In Europe, there has been a 755% spike in excess deaths in kids since the vax rollout! Britain’s Telegraph reported on a wave of “unexplained excess mortality” in Britain. According to figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), around 1,000 more people die than normal every week and the deaths cannot be linked to the coronavirus. A reasonable person realizes he must be suspicious of the vaccines as the cause and, yes, some of the dead were unvaccinated.

The COVID-19 vaccine mRNAs were found in vaccinated women’s breast milk, according to a study published in  JAMA Pediatrics, a specialized journal affiliated with the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association.

We were assured that the vaccine would stay in the shot area for a short while but now we know otherwise. Physicians in Italy evaluated the blood of 1,006 patients who had received at least one dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine and found “foreign matter” long after vaccination, according to a new study. Their results were published in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research in August 2022, as reported in the Epoch Times.

The spike proteins produced by the vaccine travel to every single cell in your body. COVID expert Dr. Vladimir Zelenko declared, “According to a paper published by the Salk Institute in San Diego, they’ve discovered that the spike protein that’s generated through the vaccination itself has negative health effects. It’s toxic…There’s plenty of evidence that shows that it spreads from the injection site and goes to the bloodstream, and basically comes into every single cell in the body.”

Dr. Byram Bridle, a Canadian immunologist, also cites recent research showing the spike protein remained in the bloodstream of humans for 29 days. He declares that both the vaccine and the spike protein are expelled in breast milk and could be fatal for babies. Bridle says vaccinated breastfeeding women are in danger of feeding a baby contaminated milk. Mothers are not doing good by transferring antibodies but are transferring the vaccine itself, as well as the spike protein, which could result in bleeding and/or blood clots in their children.

Bridle declared the spike protein is a poison and can “cause cardiovascular and neurological damage.” This can result in the toxin accumulating in the ovaries of females who received the injection, causing blood clots, abnormal bleeding, infertility, pain at the injection site, heart inflammation, heart attacks, severe allergies, diarrhea, etc. Additionally, 30,000 women reported their periods being altered after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

In spite of the above, the CDC still recommends COVID-19 vaccination “for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or who might become pregnant in the future.”

Shocking, scandalous, astounding, criminal, monstrous, and a few more unpleasant words come to mind. Remember, even federal health officials took the oath to “do no harm.”

A growing concern is the many unusual results from autopsies done by coroners and morticians who have never seen long blood clots in autopsied bodies before the COVID jab.

What is not known or admitted is that the medical experts who are critical of the federal physicians’ mishandling of COVID are even more qualified than the federal flunkies interested only in their next royalty payment from their patented drugs and keeping their cushy jobs. Frankly, most of the federal physicians are in the minor league compared to the independent doctors who deal with COVID patients daily. Thousands of highly qualified physicians have risked everything to sound the warning about dangerous FDA-approved drugs and especially the unsafe, ineffective, and deadly COVID vaccines—of all varieties.

I interviewed a Tennessee physician, a major proponent of Ivermectin, who has treated over 5,000 COVID patients and only four older patients died, and they had waited too long to get medical care. And she did it all without charging them anything!

The Global COVID Summit consists of 17,000 doctors who are warning about the dangers of the vaccines. Shouldn’t these experts be given some believability for putting everything on the line to warn people? However, the brainwashed sheep even refuse to listen to their evidence. This video consists of three top COVID experts who reveal the truth suppressed by federal health bureaucrats.

I have been told, “There’s so much that’s not true flying around over the past couple of years.” Yes, that is true, but consider the confession of Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of Lancet: “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.”

“But we need to vaccinate the world for everyone’s good.” Remember the prescient warning of Albert Camus, 1957 Nobel Laureate in Literature, “The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants.”

Arrogant, self-ordained federal health tyrants and would-be tyrants are everywhere, especially in Washington, D.C. I think it’s the water. However, Truth must not be sacrificed at the altar of pretended superiority.

Nazis Based Their Radical Treatment of Disabled, Deficient, Diseased, Deaf, and Dumb People on Flawed Science—Progressives’ Policies Are Based on Wokeism! Fri, 11 Nov 2022 22:23:39 +0000 By Don Boys, Ph.D.

Wokeism is the new Nazism.

Comparing Nazis’ treatment of people in an effort to reach their desired results with modern woke zealots’ behavior will be resented—by modern Nazis. However, my analysis will be accepted by informed people.  The historic Nazis made their vile mark upon the world but were stopped and almost eliminated, while modern wokers are dismantling a thriving society with little opposition. America and the world will never be the same because of the virulent, venal, even vicious virus of wokeism.

Think with me along these lines—the Nazis’ dangerous, disastrous, and deadly system as compared with what the wokers are doing.

Would you permit your disabled child to be killed by the state to keep him or her out of pain and make life easier and better for you and your family?

Or to save the government health care system from going belly up!

Where did you or the state get the authority to do the above? Does any state or jurisdiction have the right to mistreat a helpless citizen? reported a Canadian man was euthanized by health officials after being hospitalized for “hearing loss,” according to reports. He had texted his brother, asking him to “bust him out” of the hospital, but it was too late. He was killed by those allegedly called and trained to save lives and “to do no harm.” In reasonable, humane societies, his euthanasia would be considered murder. However, “authorities” in medicine and politics seem to be all-powerful.

Both medicine and politics need to have their wings clipped. That will keep them closer to earth and common sense.

In 1920, a world-shaking book was published by Germans Karl Binding and Alfred Hoche with the English title, Permission to Destroy Life Devoid of Value or Permitting the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Life. It addressed the legal relationship between suicide and euthanasia and extended it to killing the mentally ill. The book suggested that killing a patient was justifiable when it led to saving other lives, particularly when the patients in question were of no value to themselves or society. The book advocates killing the mentally ill or the intellectually dead, especially since such people were a drain on society—useless eaters.

When Hitler came to power legally, he wanted a pure nation of strong, blond, blue-eyed Germans. Those who could not contribute to that view of National Socialism had to go. Many thousands left the country. Others stayed and were sent to work camps. The Nazis used the legal and medical research of Binding and Hoche to support their culling of the weak, incompetent, demented, etc. And this was supported by the German people. A 1925 poll of German parents of disabled children indicated that 74% favored euthanizing their children! The book helped to make suicide and euthanasia legal.

If you think it couldn’t happen here, you had better think about the above poll—in the land of Martin Luther and thousands of Catholic and Lutheran churches.

Before Hitler’s rise to dictator in 1934, grotesque laws were framed as public health measures with the goal of strengthening society. The German euthanasia program was officially adopted in 1939 and accelerated quickly to bizarre lengths. Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide author Robert Jay Liftin revealed that Nazi policy underwent several modifications.

“Of the five identifiable steps by which the Nazis carried out the principle of ‘life unworthy of life,’ coercive sterilization was the first. There followed the killing of ‘impaired’ children in hospitals. Then the killing of ‘impaired’ adults, mostly collected from mental hospitals, in centers especially equipped with carbon monoxide gas.” This bizarre project was extended to “impaired” inmates in concentration camps.

The Nazis did the above and more based on the best medical science at the time. The diseased and disabled individuals were unproductive members of society and drained out of society much more than they contributed. Plus, they were a lot of trouble to care for!

More than half of all German physicians became early members of the Nazi Party, exceeding the party enrollments of all other professions. That suggests to me that M.D. might refer to morally deficient. National Socialist officials could say, “Hey, we are only doing what the medical experts tell us the science requires.”

Well, we have sure heard that many times recently.

The world had embraced the “science” of eugenics. The Germans, yes, even the Nazis, thought they were good people acting on sound evidence and a solid ethical basis. These defendants engaged in genocide, but they did so under the protective cover of medical authority and official legitimacy. Almost anything can be justified if based on “following the science.”

We sure know about that, don’t we?

Our government has permitted electric shock; lobotomies (Rosemary Kennedy, sister to the late president John F. Kennedy the most famous victim); cocaine sold like candy in drug stores and used in the first Coca-Cola in the late 1880s; Bayer began advertising a heroin-laced aspirin in 1898 until 1913; forced sterilization; forced inoculations; etc., that compare with Nazi policies.

However, no government has the authority to slaughter innocent unborn babies; permit, even encourage, assisted suicide; sterilize people against their will; authorize immorality (heterosexual or homosexual) of any kind; legalize unwanted medical treatment; permit children to have their sexual organs chopped off or be mutilated; encourage and sponsor changing genders—which can’t be done; and on and on.

While we question the morality and the competence of Hitler’s experts, we must also question modern health officials as well as politicians who think they can make a pretend boy become a real boy.

No, government officials in Germany and the U.S. don’t have the authority, but they have the power since they carry the guns.

The expression “life unworthy of life,” which appeared first in Binding and Hoche’s book, was essential to Nazi ideology. The two authors, a lawyer and a physician, were not political and for sure were not National Socialists. They were academics dealing with a very delicate subject: Does the state have the right to kill some people for the good of many? Does the state have a right to decide when a life is unproductive?

Between 1934 and 1939, the number of people sterilized ranged from 200,000 to 400,000 Germans to keep a clean or pure race.  Between 1933 and 1945, roughly 15,000 deaf people were forcibly sterilized. In Canada, they kill them as the news revealed.

According to Hoche, “some living people who were brain damaged, intellectually disabled, autistic (though not recognized as such at the time), and mentally ill were ‘mentally dead,’ ‘human ballast’ and ‘empty shells of human beings.’” Hoche believed that killing such people was helpful since they made no contribution to society and were considered disposable.

They were useless eaters.

New Nazis are walking among us today and are considered intellectuals teaching at major American universities, receiving generous salaries and perks. The wokest among them tell us a child can decide what gender he/she/it wants to be. Moreover, such confused children have a right to receive hormone blockers and even have their tell-tell organs chopped off to give credibility to their insane fantasies.

To hide a male’s sexual organ before surgery (mutilation), the Boston Children’s Hospital  advises transgender teenagers as young as 13 to implement “safer tucking” to make their penis look like a vagina. Taping with medical tape is recommended using tape for that purpose; however, if boys use duct tape, the hospital (that used to have a sterling reputation) added, “if you do use duct tape, remember to shave (although not right before, as that can cause irritation) so that the tape does not pull hair. Soak in a warm bath before removal to make the tape less sticky.”

Those hospital officials are not only woke but weird, even wacky. But double board certified.

Furthermore, childbirth, monthly periods, and menopause are no longer strictly the bailiwick of females, and such events can now be experienced by any male who desires them according to the wokest of the woke. But then, why would any sane man want those experiences?

American philosopher Peter Singer Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, and others have made similar arguments for any time abortion to weeks following birth and any time euthanasia. Singer declares, “It would be morally wrong to choose to have a child with disability.” He and other fuzzy, foolish, and fatal ethicists believe permitting a disabled child to live is wrong. Therefore, if killing a hemophiliac infant has no adverse effect on others, it would, in their view, be right to kill him.

Singer—not only woke but wicked—has no problem with sex with the dead (necrophilia) as long as consent was given to the person while alive. Of course, sex with animals is acceptable. Not sure about needing consent. Maybe the wag of a dog’s tale is sufficient. But it gets worse—it always does. Singer told ABC, “A woman has oral sex performed by her dog. I know women who have said this is something that pleases them. The dog is free to do it or walk away. There is no dominance over the dog. That seems to me harmless.”

Notice that having personal supremacy over the dog would be wrong but perverted sex is acceptable.

To be clear, I have more respect for the dog than I do for the woman or Singer, and under normal circumstances, such disgusting subjects should not be discussed by normal people; however, we are living in very unusual times.

Humans are responsible for living as humans and will give a personal account to a just and holy God one day.

University of California professor Kenneth Watt opined, “Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs.”

Watt, Singer, and Company are far from harmless. As in Germany, freakish, foolish, and fraudulent scientists declared war on the culture to replace it. Tenured professors’ positions are secure no matter how unbiblical, un-American, unqualified, or stupid they are. Moreover, they are generally safe from being fired unless caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy.

Woke fanaticism is obvious, as supported by watching almost any television show. Radicals have put the cult in culture and removed the civil from civilization. It almost makes me want to resign from the human race.

And it has lost its humanity.

Hymns of Hate from Black Leaders! Thu, 03 Nov 2022 18:45:47 +0000 By Don Boys, Ph.D.

A few years ago, I thought a racist was a person—black, white, or polka dot—who disliked someone of another race because they were of another race. Of course, that’s hardly their fault. However, from the major media, it seems I have been wrong all along. It seems Blacks cannot be racists, and whites are always racists —because they were born into whiteness.

Racism is the blackjack used in an attempt to beat Whites and Conservative Blacks (called Uncle Toms by black racists) into submission. Black fanatics seeking an audience, advancement, and an advantage, usually look through rage-colored glasses. Moreover, I have been convinced in recent years that Black leaders are America’s most irresponsible, insincere, and inept people. They have surrendered any modicum of honesty to the god of wokeism. They will say anything, take any position, and support any person without consideration for their courage or cowardice, compassion or cruelty, facts or fantasy, or honor or hokum.

And white politicians, pundits, preachers, professors, and the press with enormous influence are too gutless to condemn their insanity and, in some cases, their insincerity.

Martin Luther King’s 1967 “The Other America” speech at Stanford University was two years after California and Harlem’s race riots. King vainly tried to explain the cause of rioting and looting to his mainly white audience. He said, “A riot is the language of the unheard.” No, rioting, looting, and burning are the results of destructive, devious, and demented minds and cannot be justified. King was not ridiculed for such a stupid statement because of his special status.

It is time for Blacks to look at where they are in America—not in bondage, not on a plantation, not second class but in the best situation they have ever been. They are free and have more prestige, power, possessions, property, and presence than at any time in their history. Many Blacks are in far better circumstances than ordinary white people. However, the rhetoric of their leaders does not indicate that reality.

Instead, many black leaders pretend Blacks live on an antebellum plantation waiting hand and foot on a vile, vicious, and violent Simon Legree.  While chattel slavery can never be justified, all slave owners were not so stupid as to kill those who did their plantation work. All Blacks are not heroes, nor are all Whites zeros.

History is full of dishonest, dishonorable, and devious Blacks that were charlatans—and worse.

LeRoi Jones declared, “they [Whites] owe us everything, including their lives.” It is astounding that anyone, especially Blacks, would consider that dude an icon of black history. However, Blacks are very careless and seem to support almost any popular Black, no matter how vile, vicious, or violent they are.

It seems color, not character is the deciding factor when choosing heroes.

Marcus Garvey, a famous Black leader, declared, “Every student of history, of impartial mind, knows that the Negro ruled the world when white men were savages and barbarians living in caves; that thousands of Negro professors at that time taught in the universities of Alexandria, then the seat of learning—that ancient Egypt gave to the world civilization and that Greece and Rome have robbed Egypt of her arts and letters, and taken all the credit to themselves.”

His inaccurate, incredible, and insane tirade continued: “It is not surprising, however, that white men should resort to every means to keep Negroes in ignorance of their history. It would be a great shock to their pride to admit to the world today that 3,000 years ago black men excelled in government and were the founders and teachers of art, science and literature.”

The racism in the above statement is only exceeded by his ignorance or his deliberate lies in rewriting history. Every informed Black should be embarrassed by his stupid comment, but I don’t know any civil rights leader who condemned his diatribe.

Of course, reversing Black and White would still be untrue.

I don’t mean to be unkind, but it is undisputed that Blacks are the only group in America who have not risen as a group during their tenure. Compare them to the Irish, Jews, Mexicans, Asians, Germans, Italians, and others. But I suppose it is racism to report that uncomfortable reality. Sure, numerous Blacks are very successful, but as a group, they have worsened.

Louis Farrakhan declared, “The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the lake of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman, or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years.”

Yet, Farrakhan, an outspoken Jew-hater, has been courted and promoted by numerous white and black leaders who consider him untouchable. Tragically, he has wasted his life being fat, racist, and stupid. But then, he does always dress well in costly clothes. Significantly, Joe Biden attended the funeral of a Capitol Hill Police Officer who was killed by a supporter of  Farrakhan and then participated in a meeting with supporters of Louis Farrakhan.

Such inane action proves Biden does not abide by my historical friend Bill Shakespeare’s statement, “Consistency, thou art a jewel.” In kindness, Biden’s excuse could be he has sadly slipped into the shadows of senility. However, that doesn’t excuse his advisors, his wife, and leaders of the Democrat Party for putting him in a position that exposes his pathetic recklessness.

Another black leader wrote, “Everywhere the white man may be, even in Europe, the earth belongs to the Black Man.” He also declared, “The Time of the Rise of the Black Man of America is NOW!”

The film “Why Don’t We Murder More White People” aired at a San Francisco museum for a month. A description of the film depicted it as “an examination of whiteness, its unassailable immortality, and how it permeates our daily lives.” It tells us that whiteness is violence, and that Whites are born “inherently evil.” One person said, “I think if you’re not supporting people of color and to end white supremacy, and you’re neutral, or you are that person that’s perpetrating it, then you shouldn’t — I think you deserve harm.”

Your tax dollars produced the film. Wonder what would happen if I suggested that police should kill more Blacks. Oh, I see. That’s different. Blacks can’t be racist, and we must forgive their racist ranting and only smile at their pathetic swaggering, breast-beating antics.

Black zealot Damon Young admitted he “Recite[s] the Lord’s Prayer with my family. But instead of ending it with ‘Amen,’ adds, ‘and then kill whitey.’” What apparent hypocrisy (and blasphemy) and such action in the presence of children is blatant child abuse.

Biden’s nominee to head the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division, Kristen Clarke, wrote, among other things, that “Black infants sit, stand, crawl and walk sooner than whites” and “Melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities.” When she said that, no one yelled “racism” and demanded she be rejected. To their credit, all Republican senators except Susan Collins of Maine voted against her. Were those Republicans racists, or were the supporting Democrats racists?

I suppose it is bigotry for me to remind Kristen that only 16 Blacks have won Nobel Prizes, and 12 of those were awarded the easy-to-qualify-for Peace Prize. You know Obama, Mandela, King, Bunch, Tutu, etc. Since the desired prize began in 1901, 954 individuals (including 61 women) have received a Nobel Prize, so do we accuse the leftist Nobel Committee of racism?

When I hear such insane, inaccurate, and intolerable pronouncements as Kristen’s, I immediately think it is all a joke, or someone is clinically insane, or maybe only the spouting of a certified idiot. Obviously, truth is being sacrificed at the altar of pretended tolerance. It appears Kristen is incompetent even though she graduated from Harvard and Columbia Law School, which may tell you how far those schools have degenerated.

If I were a trustee of one of those schools, I would demand the return of her degree.

Race hustler Ibram X Kendi (born Henry Rogers) attacked Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett as a “white colonizer” for adopting two Haitian children. According to the jerk (Kendi, not Barrett), the justice thought such action would protect her from charges of racial bigotry.

Does any lucid person believe a prominent white family would adopt black children to score points with the woke crowd? Isn’t it possible, just possible, that the Barrett family loves children and wants to give desperate black kids an incredible opportunity to be loved and reared for personal success?

WorldNetDaily reported on the racism of a New York Times writer who believes white people are “bloodsuckers” and “barbaric devils.” Nikole Hannah-Jones, the reporter behind the New York Times’ 1619 Project declared America was “founded to preserve slavery.” She recently demanded and was paid a $40,000 fee for a speech at a Virginia high school. I might consider listening to her speech if I received a $40 listening fee. But on second thought, I would not. Hannah-Jones has proved to be a farce and a fraud and far from factual, in my opinion.

Is it racism to disclaim, dislike, and disparage the black subculture—what passes as music, living on welfare for generations, absent fathers, high prison incarceration, corrupted English, etc.? It is not racism to point out that Blacks are the only minority in U.S. History who has failed to improve after many generations; liberal politicians (mostly Democrats) are the reason.

Nigerian-born rap artist Jesse Ekene Nweke Conable believes only white people can be racists and called for his fans to “shoot” white people while urging, “Take them as slaves and treat them even worse.” He added, “We’ll take their bitches and we’ll take their money. To be perfectly honest, we will be the best race ever. We are African warriors, they are not on our level. This is just the beginning, black power.” Making the shape of a gun with his hand, Conable asserted, “If any white guy or white girl is trying to talk **** about you, shoot them! If they talk **** about your family, shoot them!”

If racist Blacks have their way, your future will forever be a boot on your face. Wishing does no good, but many Americans wish their ancestors would have picked their own cotton.

All Serial Killers Were Failed by Parents and Were Cruel to Animals! Fri, 28 Oct 2022 17:30:30 +0000  

By Don Boys, Ph.D.

Robert K. Ressler, an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) behavioral sciences unit, studied serial killers and noted, “Murderers…very often start out by killing and torturing animals as kids,” and he further observes, “… a fascination with cruelty to animals is a red flag in the backgrounds of serial killers and rapists.” The Humane Association agreed, reporting that 95% of serial killers abused animals.

The Chicago Police Department conducted a four-year study that “revealed a startling propensity for offenders charged with crimes against animals to commit other violent offenses toward human victims.” In fact, 65% of people arrested for animal cruelty or abuse also had a criminal record for violence against a human.

Donald Henry Gaskins claimed to have killed more than a hundred people. As a child, he was beaten by many “stepfathers” and did not even know his given name until his first arrest as a youngster! In a reform school, he was raped by fellow inmates, which happened during his future imprisonment. He tortured and mutilated many victims, trying to keep them alive as long as possible. He admitted to eating some of them! He killed the daughter of a South Carolina State Senator and was executed by the state of South Carolina.

Jeffrey Dahmer had an above-average I.Q. and killed 17 males, after which he had sex with them and cooked and ate them. In childhood, his hobby was torturing and killing his neighbors’ pets, and he even impaled a dog’s head on a stick and displayed it in his neighborhood. Dahmer also nailed bullfrogs to trees, collected animal roadkill, dissected the remains, and masturbated over the animals he had butchered.

Albert DeSalvo (the “Boston strangler”) killed 13 women and, as a child, trapped dogs and cats in a box and shot arrows through them.

Charming Ted Bundy killed 40 people and, as a child, watched his father torture small animals. Ted got his “kicks” by raping and killing women, and his final kick was from Florida’s electric chair.

Carroll Cole was arrested for murdering 35 people, and he told officials that the first time he was violent was when he strangled a puppy as a child.

Edmund Emil Kemper, as a child, killed cats that he found around the neighborhood and displayed their heads on poles. He ended up killing eight women, including his mother.

David Parker Ray was abused by his father and was bullied at school. He killed 60 people, including the torture and rape of many women. Tommy Lynn Sells is known to have killed 22 but is believed to have killed at least 70. Gerald Stano killed 41, Charles Cullen killed 45, and Coral Eugene Watts killed 40. Gary Ridgway confessed to 48 murders. Charles Manson was responsible for 35 ritual murders and tortured animals at satanic rituals. Albert Hamilton Fish was guilty of 15 murders and 100 rapes and setting animals on fire. Henry Lee Lucas, believed responsible for 100 to 200 murders, brutally tortured animals as a child.

Some serial killers become incredibly extreme mass killers.

Ludwig Tiene was an inmate with supervisory authority (often wrongly called an S.S. executioner) at Auschwitz, the Nazi prison camp, and was responsible for killing as many as 100 boys and young men per day! He “strangled, crushed, and gnawed” them to death while he often raped them.

Gilles de Rais lived in the 1400s and was a man of riches, rank, and reputation who fought alongside Joan of Arc. He was also a pervert and was executed after confessing to raping and killing about 200 (some say it was many hundred) children from ages six to 18. De Rais tortured, raped, and killed hundreds of boys (and some girls), after which they were cut apart and burned or eaten. This elegant pervert was devoutly religious (although he sacrificed to demons and made pacts with them), was brave in battle, loved music, and was a fastidious dresser. At his trial, he told the parents of his victims that he was their “brother in Christ.” Hundreds even wept for him as he swung from a rope by his neck. Such gullible fools are always among us, as are serial killers.

Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Báthory, who died in 1614, was a bisexual serial killer who Guinness World Records labeled as the world’s most prolific female killer. However, the precise number of her victims is debated. Her family controlled Transylvania, and her uncle was the king of Poland.

Báthory and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of young women between 1585 and 1609. The torture usually included severe beatings, burning, or mutilation of hands, biting the flesh off the faces, arms, and other body parts, and freezing or starving the victims to death. The highest number of victims cited during the investigation was 650. Because of her family’s status, she was not imprisoned but kept by her family in solitary confinement in a room with blocked windows until her death. Three of her servants who participated in the crimes were executed, and one was sentenced to life in prison.

Obviously, potential serial killers are tragic, troubled, and twisted individuals who need to be identified and helped while it is still possible to help them. Parents and educators are the first lines of defense; however, too many refuse to be sensitive to the problem. And we keep breeding more serial killers.

I don’t mean to be callous, cruel, or careless, but I am far more disturbed about the killer and his victims than I am about animals. Animals are not comparable to humans, as some animal rights fanatics declare. Animals were put on earth for our benefit. There is nothing wrong with using animals for food, work, or entertainment, although no one can defend their mistreatment.

Charles Darwin wrote in The Descent of Man, “There is no fundamental difference between man and the higher mammals in their mental faculties.” Darwin was wrong and made a fool of himself in an earlier book where he tried to show mankind evolving from a warm little pond. He had no proof of a little pond and no way to know whether it was cold, tepid, or warm. Or that any life evolved from it.

However, evolutionists keep looking for Darwin’s warm little pond.

God commanded that a beast should not be muzzled in Deuteronomy 25:4: “Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.” In other words, if the beast provides labor, it is only fitting that it should be fed. Proverbs 12:10 declares, “A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast.”

When a child pulls the tail of a cat or dog, parents should caution the child and make an issue of the incident. It should be a significant teaching moment. Children should be taught to be kind, gentle, gracious, and thoughtful because it is right to be so. Parents should not say, “Don’t pull your dog’s tail; he may bite you.” No, he should not pull the dog’s tail because it is wrong to do so. Kids must be taught the difference between right and wrong in all situations.

Children must grow up with four-letter words that change a person and the world: love, kind, true, good, evil, etc. If children cannot recognize right from wrong, we will keep breeding serial killers.

Children who torture animals may unconsciously be following an ancient notion that they become more powerful by making others suffer. Cannibals believe ingesting another person transfers the victim’s power to the killer. In many parts of the world, torture has been used for millennia by many peoples for many reasons. Today, torture is used to punish people and to procure information and is being used as I write.

Dr. Peter Singer of Princeton University declared to CNN, “I think that a chimpanzee certainly has greater self-awareness than a newborn baby.” Singer also reiterated one of his most controversial positions regarding the right of parents to kill a newborn infant within 28 days of birth if the infant is deemed “severely disabled.” In my opinion, Singer is “severely disabled.”

Dr. Singer proves that all nuts are not on trees or in California.

Many of those same people say it is acceptable to have sex with an animal but not eat one! And, of course, it is permissible for animals to eat each other since there is no way to prohibit that, and that is “natural.” According to some, since animals are equal to humans, it is not only disgusting but criminal to eat them, even if they are bred for that purpose. That belief would sentence the world to starvation.

Many people who don’t believe the Bible use it to prove their point, such as those who tell us that God’s original plan was for mankind to eat plants. They are correct, but when Adam and Eve disobeyed God, sin came into the world, which changed everything. After the “curse,” animals were acceptable as food. Moreover, animals can be used in scientific experiments that can save the lives of millions of people. Again, one must be thoughtful without being a fanatic.

Children need to be molded, corrected, and guided into adulthood. When a parent sees a mean spirit, rebellion, anger, hatred, selfishness, etc., steps should be taken to resolve those destructive attitudes. If not, a Jeffrey Dahmer is in the making. But such an effort takes time, and most parents are too busy, lazy, or thoughtless to do proper parenting.

There are various and differing interpretations of Proverbs 22:6, but it definitely teaches that parents must talk, teach, and train their children if they want them to be honest, honorable, and hardworking. No parent wants to rear a serial killer or even a disruptive, dishonest, disagreeable, and disobedient child.

Howeverachieving that goal will require work—another four-letter word not heard much anymore.

Many Serial Killers Among Us Are Being Overlooked! Sat, 22 Oct 2022 18:02:49 +0000 By Don Boys, Ph.D.

Stockton, California police arrested Wesley Brownlee in connection with six unprovoked murders of men ages 21 to 54 over the last few months. Five of the six were Latinos. Brownlee is from a broken home and has a criminal record going back decades. At 14, he and friends sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl. If found guilty of the murders, he will not be executed but live decades in California’s prison system watching television, lifting weights, and breathing, things his victims no longer do.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) informs us that there are about 500 serial killers living among us at all times although most are inactive. Most of them are male and had an unusual relationship with their mother. However, a study reported in The New Yorker says it is 2,000! The tragedy is they could have been identified early if parents, teachers, and physicians recognized their problems.

Americans are always shocked, shaken, and often stunned when a serial killer is caught, followed by revelations that he captured, mutilated, raped, and killed many innocent victims. The question always follows: “Why would anyone do something so heinous?” Answers such as “he had been abused,” “he was on drugs,” or “he was insane” are forthcoming, and for sure, those are answers but only partial answers.

Every person on earth has an evil nature, capable of doing anything under the right circumstances.

In Romans 3, God built a case against man, proving his need for redemption. In Romans 6:23, Paul wrote, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” And that is followed in Romans 10:13 with “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” That is the answer to mankind’s major problems.

Man’s sinful nature is the short, sure, and simple explanation–but not an excuse or exoneration–for all sins, including serial killings. The real reason for human rape, murder, incest, theft, lust, and anger is that people are evil by nature; but why do only a small percentage of people commit serial killings? There are many secondary reasons for serial killings, and we must ascertain why only a few people become serial killers when everyone is evil by nature.  And we must be able to identify serial killers early.

According to the Encyclopedia of Death and the Human Experience, “A serial killer is someone who has murdered three or more people over a period of more than a month, with a cooling-off period between murders. The motive is usually based on psychological (often sexual) gratification, though the motives may also include anger, thrill, money, and attention seeking.” Furthermore, 40% of them will never be caught.

Michael H. Stone, M.D., in his The Anatomy of Evil, reveals the motives of serial killers generally fall into four categories: first is the visionary who feels compelled by God or the Devil or obscure voices to murder. The second is mission-oriented, seeking to rid the world of homosexuals, prostitutes, Christians, Jews, etc. The third is the hedonistic person who derives pleasure from killing. The fourth is one seeking control over others. The categories overlap considerably.

Is it nature or nurture that determines aggressive, deadly behavior? In other words, is “bad seed” a reality? Do some children inherit inappropriate, even criminal behavior (other than original sin) from their parents? A study that focused on a group of psychopaths who had been adopted as infants showed that their biological relatives were four to five times more likely to be psychopathic than the average person! Researchers note that it is easier for “bad seeds to blossom in bad environments.” Well, that is a given. I am convinced it is not nature or nurture but nature and nurture. This issue needs more in-depth research and goes to the heart of this issue. Whether nature or nurture, each person must be held accountable for his actions.

Serial killers have written gory biographies in blood that demand the attention of normal, decent people.

Dr. H. H. Holmes was America’s first serial killer in the 1890s. He confessed to killing 27 people but claimed that he could not keep from killing people anymore “than the poet can help the inspiration to sing.” Like most lawbreakers, he refused to take responsibility for his own crimes.

Dr. Harold Shipman is considered to be the most prolific serial killer in modern history. He was a British doctor who killed over 200 of his patients. He was arrogant and demanding of underlings at his hospital and never admitted any guilt, although the evidence was overwhelming. He finally hanged himself in his cell in 2004.

A common thread that runs through almost all serial killers is during their youth, they were cruel to animals. The Cohen study (Cohen, W., Congressional Register, 142(141), Oct. 3) confirmed that 46% of convicted multiple murderers admitted to torturing animals. Another study revealed that in every school shooting between 1997 and 2001, every perpetrator was a boy who had committed one or more acts of animal cruelty! More than 90% of serial killers are male.

A police study in Australia revealed that “100 percent of sexual homicide offenders examined had a history of animal cruelty.” Researchers consider this to be a red flag in the backgrounds of rapists and serial killers. FBI agent Robert K. Ressler declared, “These are the kids who never learned it’s wrong to poke out a puppy’s eyes.” Where were the parents of those children? Why would a normal child have to be told that it is wrong to punch out a puppy’s eyes?

Dr. Randall Lockwood reported that researchers, as well as the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, have “linked animal cruelty to domestic violence, child abuse, serial killings, and to the recent rash of killings by school-age children.”

The American Humane Association reported in a study of 57 families being treated for incidents of child abuse that 88% had also abused animals.

According to The New York Times (Aug. 7, 1991), the FBI revealed that a history of cruelty to animals is one of the traits that regularly appears in its computer records of serial rapists and killers.

Alan R. Felthous reported in his paper “Aggression Against Cats, Dogs, and People”: “A survey of psychiatric patients who had repeatedly tortured dogs and cats found all of them had high levels of aggression toward people as well, including one patient who had murdered a boy.”

Harold Hovel, Ph.D. of the New York State Humane Association wrote, “Every year, 4000 kids under 18 murder others and 5000 more commit suicide. Virtually all of them were abused and began abusing animals by their teenage years.” The evidence seems to prove that all serial killers were abused as children, and practically all of them tortured animals!  That sounds to me as if serial killers are made in the home by lazy, unconcerned, careless, or thoughtless parents.

Anthropologist Margaret Mead declared, “One of the most dangerous things that can happen to a child is to kill or torture an animal and get away with it.” That’s one of the few times I agree with loopy Mead, and I disagree if she was referring to a rat. Killing a rat or similar creature is good, normal behavior; however, torture is always an ominous warning. Why would any sane parent even think of permitting a child to “get away” with cruelty? Such failure contributes to producing a serial killer.

Animal rights extremists teach children to rescue spiders from the bathtub while I teach children to swat every spider, fly, mosquito, and roach in sight. Children must be taught to discern, to debate, and decide between right and wrong based on biblical teaching. While it is acceptable to eat an animal, it is not right to abuse any creature.

The mass killings of 13 and wounding of 20 others at Columbine High School in Colorado by Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris reveal that these boys did not wait until adulthood to kill. As teenagers, they progressed from animal abuse to killing their classmates.

The same is true for Kip Kinkel, 15, of Oregon; Kip killed his parents and 2 classmates and wounded 22 more. Luke Woodham, 16, of Pearl, Mississippi, killed his mother and 3 classmates.  Jose Hernandez, 17, killed his father, mother, 6-year-old brother, and 8-month-old brother. Jim Hardy, 17, and 2 friends beat a boy to death to see what it was like.

All of them were known to have tortured animals. No one did anything about it. The facts strongly suggest that all serial killers tortured animals as children after being abused themselves or observing violence in the home. That fact indicates murderers among us can be identified before they kill.

Various studies have consistently shown that mass killers are made in the home. If kids see a parent abuse a spouse, then the child may copy that behavior. In fact, statistics show that 30 percent of children who have witnessed domestic violence will act out a similar type of violence against their pets. If not recognized and treated, that aggression becomes more serious against other children and later against adults. Children who have been physically abused (not to be confused with loving, normal childhood discipline) often torture and kill animals.

There may be explanations for animal abuse by young children that don’t indicate a budding serial killer. Small or undeveloped children (as young as four and usually boys) often want to know “how an animal works,” thereby inflicting pain. Some children don’t understand that animals experience pain, considering them like toys. Others will abuse animals out of boredom which is a reason for children to be required to do chores, do their homework, be supervised, etc. Another explanation for abuse is peer pressure for gang membership. Others will try to identify with their abuser by abusing an animal or smaller child.

Although it is impossible to always predict if a child will grow up to be a serial killer, the three warning signs of future psychopathic behavior are animal torture, prolonged bed-wetting, and an uncontrollable urge to set fires. Criminologists call these symptoms, The Homicidal Triad. Some criminologists and psychologists believe that the combination of two or more of these three behaviors increases the risk of violent behavior in adulthood. While many children wet the bed, this behavior may be a sign of a deeper deviate condition when it continues beyond age 12. Shirley Lynn Scott revealed in What Makes Serial Killers Tickthat over 60% of serial killers were still wetting their beds as adolescents.

There is a common theme to all of the shootings of recent years,” says Dr. Harold S. Koplewicz, director of the Child Study Center at New York University. “You have a child who has symptoms of aggression toward his peers, an interest in fire, cruelty to animals, social isolation, and many warning signs that the school has ignored.”

Serial killers are being produced by careless, clueless, and often cruel parents, and the parents, teachers, and physicians must make it a priority to recognize and mitigate the problem.

Potential serial killers don’t have to become killers, but it will require courage, commitment, and consistency to save them and their victims.

Pope Francis Uniting Roman Catholics and Muslims Forming World Church! Fri, 14 Oct 2022 18:22:04 +0000 By Don Boys, Ph.D.

There are about 4,200 religions, churches, denominations, religious bodies, and faith groups in the world, and Pope Francis is trying to get everyone together; however, each group makes its own pitch for their “way.” Obviously, Francis has to convince everyone to consider their own teaching as non-essential in order to merge with the other groups that are in error. To leftists, unity is far more important than truth.

The Pope is trying to unite the predominant religions in the world— Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism totaling over 5 billion people.  He also wants to include pagan followers, and all those who worship Satan, snakes, snails, and the sun.  At a religious conflab consisting of Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and Buddhists, he warned against “the temptation to fundamentalism” or the tendency for each group to be true to their foundational truths.

The main reason the world is in a religious mess today is that the early churches strayed from their fundamental roots: Christ died and rose for our personal salvation according to the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God; the world is lost, needing to hear the saving message; Christians are commissioned to tell the Good News to the world; Christians are commanded to love everyone (but not forsaking truth), live godly lives, and stand for truth even at the cost of our lives.

The early Christians, for the most part, got away from their original teachings, and the religious world has become a vicious snake pit. Francis thinks he is doing God’s work in bringing everyone together; however, the Pope has no heavenly mandate to accomplish this gargantuan task. He does have religious gravitas that goes with his position, but it will take supernatural help to get the job done. His help is not coming from above but from below!

The Pope has enormous influence, but he is not recognized as the leader of all Christians; not even all Roman Catholics recognize him. Only the weakest Protestants recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world; of course, Jews don’t recognize the Pope as the religious leader, nor do they recognize Christ as Messiah; Islam recognizes their ayatollahs as leaders, not the Pope nor does Islam recognize the Bible as the actual Word of God. And Baptists don’t recognize anyone except their local pastor, and they seem to have a tacit understanding not to recognize each other at a Hooters eatery known for scantily clad waitresses.

What a religious mess!

But Pope Francis is trying to untangle the mess—he will unite everyone, starting with Catholics and Muslims. Of course, he is so uninformed that he doesn’t know he is being used as a tool to accomplish one of the major endeavors of the final days—a world church.

As always, we Baptists refuse to go along, although some liberal Baptists will cooperate with anything if it sounds intellectual, humane, and progressive.

The possibility that Muslims and Roman Catholics would ever unite is literally breathtaking. It seems impossible since both groups claim to be the exclusive path to Heaven. Of course, I never thought the Soviet Union would fall; the Berlin Wall would come down; Jim Hoffa would be found; or Biden would be sitting in the Oval Office, so what do I know?

Muslims have had Rome (Catholic Church) in their sights for hundreds of years, especially after the many Crusades starting in 1098 and lasting intermittently into the early 1200s. European “Christians” led by various popes felt compelled to take Jerusalem from the infidel Muslims who conquered it in 638 A.D. However, the crusades ended when western “Christians” attacked eastern “Christians” by sacking Constantinople in 1204.

There were crusaders with various, dubious, and complex motives for going on a crusade. Some wanted adventure; others wanted to take advantage of the Pope’s offer to get out of debt; some wanted forgiveness of their sins as the Pope promised (but then, no Pope has the authority to forgive sins since only God can do that); some wanted to get away from family responsibilities; many were looking to get rich. Some, no doubt, were genuine Christians led astray by snake oil religious salesmen in clerical collars.

Whatever, Muslims have been peeved since the last crusader staggered back home to France after failing to find his dream—but a vivid nightmare. Muslims want their pound of flesh taken from the gut of Roman Catholicism. They want their flag hoisted over the Vatican.

Imam Mundhir Abdallah, of the Masjid Al-Faruq mosque in Copenhagen, told his followers, “the final solution to the problem of the Levant – after the establishment of the Caliphate and the elimination of the Jewish entity – will be through the conquest of Europe.”

Yunis Al Astal, a popular cleric for Hamas and a scholar on Islamic law, stated, “Very soon, Allah willing, Rome will be conquered, just like Constantinople was, as was prophesied by our prophet Muhammad. Today, Rome is the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital, which has declared its hostility to Islam, and has planted the brothers of apes and pigs [Jews] in Palestine, in order to prevent the reawakening of Islam – this capital of theirs will be an advanced post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, and even Eastern Europe.”

Contrary to what those soft-on-Islam politicians say, Islam has plans: first Rome, then the world. Only fools, fanatics, and facilitators want to unite with others.

Francis had better be careful lest he fails to converge with Islam and is actually conquered by them. If he is not prudent (and he has no record of prudence), he will be snookered by the wily Muslims.

Pope Francis is the most criticized, questioned, and hated pope in my lifetime. He has made some really dumb statements. And many Catholics will agree with me. Disenchantment, disagreement, and dismay with Francis is manifold, not simply relating to Islam. But uniting with Islam would be the most profound action in the 1500 years of the church’s existence.

When Francis went to Morocco, Vatican officials abandoned the traditional papal insignia and replaced it with the cross and the crescent—the longtime symbol of Islam. Furthermore, the crescent did not appear “alongside the cross, as if a companion to it. Rather, the Islamic symbol encircles the Christian one,” symbolizing a kind of submission to Islam.

Pope Francis has accurately been hailed the “defender of Islam,” As Robert Spencer rightly notes: The Vatican sent a special message to all the world’s Muslims, wishing them “a peaceful and fruitful celebration of Ramadan,” according to  Breitbart, May 10, 2019. The Vatican’s message, titled “Christians and Muslims: Promoting Universal Fraternity” said, this was a “month for strengthening the spiritual bonds we share in Muslim-Christian friendship.”

The Catholic message offered much more than a fig leaf suggestion but declared Muslims and Catholics were part of the same spiritual family! “We Muslims and Christians are called to open ourselves to others, knowing and recognizing them as brothers and sisters,” the text states. “In this way, we can tear down walls raised out of fear and ignorance and seek together to build bridges of friendship that are fundamental for the good of all humanity.”

That same declaration brought down heavy criticism on the pope, particularly due to the assertion that the plurality and diversity of religions “are willed by God in His wisdom,” just as God wills a plurality of colors, sexes, races, and languages. Francis is saying God approves of the weird religions in pagan nations! But then, if Francis can convince his cardinals that the Catholic Church is not the only way to Heaven as they have taught and demanded for hundreds of years, then a case can be made for uniting Catholics and Islam—Chrislam.

However, Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Astana, Kazakhstan  totally disagreed with the Pope, saying, “Christianity is the only God-willed religion,” he says. “Therefore, it can never be placed complementarily side by side with other religions.” He explained, “There is only one way to God, and this is Jesus Christ, for He Himself said: ‘I am the Way’ (John 14: 6). There is only one truth, and this is Jesus Christ, for He Himself said: ‘I am the Truth’ (John 14: 6). There is only one true supernatural life of the soul, and this is Jesus Christ, for He Himself said: ‘I am the Life’ (John 14: 6).”

That is one Catholic I agree with in the matter of Christ being our All in All. The church, while important, is not essential to personal salvation.

Make no mistake, this religious amalgamation is one of the most significant attempts in human history! Astute and informed Christians have always known the church would apostatize and plunge headlong into a world religious system that would characterize the end times. We are watching it unfold with the Pope’s effort to unite all religions.

Not only are Bible-believing Christians stunned at this but so are informed and committed Roman Catholics like Bishop Schneider above. They realize uniting all religions, especially those groups that reject Christ as God, is totally contrary to what Catholics have always believed.

It is not a punch line anymore to ask, “Is the Pope a Catholic?”

Francis said, “Turning to mutual respect in interreligious relations, especially between Christians and Muslims, we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values. Particular respect is due to religious leaders and to places of worship. How painful are attacks on one or other of these!” Such a statement would gag a maggot and nauseate a whole flock of buzzards. The Roman Church tortured and killed fifty million non-Catholics who disagreed with their unbiblical doctrine between 606 A.D. and the middle of the 19th century. It is interesting that some Catholics now declare that the Inquisition never happened!

The late Cardinal Georges Cottier declared, “The Inquisition per se did not exist.” Cottier must have been a member in good standing of the Flat Earth Society until his recent death. He knows better now.

Pope Francis told Christian high school students they should respect people of other faiths and not attempt to convert them to Christianity, insisting, “we are not living in the times of the crusades.” Asked by one of the students how a Christian should treat people of other faiths or no faith, the pope said, “we are all the same, all children of God,” and that true disciples of Jesus do not proselytize.

Well, the vast number of Church critics in the Middle Ages did not believe that message, nor did the Roman Catholic clerics who tortured, skinned, and killed my theological ancestors in the public squares.

In the year he was chosen to replace Benedict, Francis said that the “key for the church is to welcome, not exclude.” However, no sane, informed Catholic expected the Church to accept Muslims and their heretical doctrine as co-equal with Catholics.

Chrislam is constantly working, often behind the scenes, to unite two world religions: Catholicism and Islam. Even Baptist preacher Rick Warren said, “Pope Francis is doing everything right.” Well, Rick has himself made many overtures toward Muslim leaders. It appears that we are all expected to disregard the truth of the ages and sit around holding hands with unbelievers over hot chocolate and brownies while an international choir sings a little off-key, Kumbaya.

Kumbaya, asking “God” to “come by here” and right all wrongs, make every day bright, put everyone on the same level, and wipe away all tears. And the icing on the cake would be to remove everyone who thinks for himself and is committed to truth wherever it leads.

The World Church is being formed as I write but God is not going to “come by here” since it is a satanic, not a scriptural plan. Frankly, merging all the weird religions may sound utopian but the reality is it will be as awkward, strained, unreal, useless, and bizarre as a three-legged horse at the Kentucky Derby.

Then, it will be co-opted by the Man the unbelieving world has been waiting for and the long-awaited world church will be accepted by everyone—or else.

I won’t be here to see that.

Shocking, Shameful, and Salacious Dress is Offensive to Decent People! Fri, 07 Oct 2022 21:33:16 +0000 By Don Boys, Ph.D.

Some females are without shame and have no sense of Christian propriety, common decency, and biblical principles.

Sharon Hodde Miller, a doctoral student at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, said, “A woman’s breasts and buttocks and thighs all proclaim the glory of the Lord.” Yes, we are fearfully and wonderfully made but God did not expect this “glory of the Lord” to be observed by everyone everywhere, especially in church.

She said, “Modesty is an orientation of the heart, first and foremost. It begins with putting God first.”  In that, she is correct; however, if God is first in one’s life, he or she will seek to do all to the glory of God.  A woman is very unchristian if she uses her bouncing breasts, swaying buttocks, or exposed flesh to influence any man other than her husband. It is also a blasphemous use of the female body.

Nutty, shameless feminists in Fort Collins, Colorado, have contended that male and female breasts are identical!  Women brandished their bare bouncing breasts along with signs proclaiming, “My breasts are no more sexual than my mouth or my hands,” “Honk for gender equality,” and “Free the NIP.”

This is not your father’s world!

My deceased philosopher father, with a sixth-grade education, would say, “This world is nuttier than a fruitcake.”  And he would have found it incredible that professing Christians would defend immodest dress.

Some Evangelical and Fundamentalist youth wear shirts declaring “Modest is Hottest” or the reverse, although I can’t imagine Christians wearing something like that.  Whatever one’s definition of “hottest,” it obviously has a sexual connotation.  Why send the wrong message to others?  I wonder what parents are doing in the parenting department.

Are Christians to be “hot”?  That kind of sexual suggestion is not conducive to the body being the Temple of the Holy Spirit.  However, non-thinkers tell us never to correct our children since it might stunt their development, and they might even throw a hissy.  Can’t have that.  They also may think they are unloved.

Christians are not to draw attention to self but to Christ.  In Matthew 23:5, Christ rebuked the scribes and Pharisees saying, “But all their works they do for to be seen of men…and enlarge their borders.”  Enlarge borders refers to Jews who wore fringes on their robes as commanded in Numbers 15:38-39 to remind them to keep the Commandments.  However, some Jews went beyond God’s command and enlarged the borders to draw attention to themselves.  Likewise, people dress outrageously and do strange things to their bodies to attract attention to themselves.

I have often wondered why a beautiful young woman would put metal in her face. For sure, while it will attract people’s attention, it is not attractive. Principled people should know why they believe and practice certain things and not make decisions without reasonable thought.

Paul’s command in Philippians 2:5 to have the mind of Christ will eliminate seductive clothing, inappropriate clothing, piercings, tattoos, expensive jewelry, green hair, Mohawk haircuts, and pants drooping below the 38th parallel.  Christians are not to draw attention to self but to Christ. Believers were called Christians in Antioch because they reminded people of Christ.  Many modern Christians remind me of circus performers.  Shocking, shameful, and salacious dress (or activity) should be unacceptable to decent people.

A Texas public school district announced that any tattoos must be covered, and only ear piercings would be accepted!  Are any churches teaching such honorable standards to their members?  Of course, visitors should be welcomed whatever they wear as long as it meets a minimum standard of decency.

Church of God in Christ is a formal Pentecostal denomination where ushers wear white gloves, and their denominational handbook says, “dressing in a sensually provocative manner produces inclinations to evil desires.”

I agree with this Church of God in Christ statement, although I am not a Pentecostal.

Even Catholic churches are battling this problem of undress. I saw this scores of times on my tours to the Middle East, especially in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Nazareth. Tourists are asked to be modest when visiting famous historical and biblical church sites.

Often, Evangelicals and Fundamentalists are very careless, even indecent, in what they wear to church.  However, I contend that the concern should not only be on Sunday, but everyday indecent dress in public is always unacceptable, ungodly, and unnecessary.

Modesty should be a byproduct of genuine Christianity, although critics confuse modesty with prudery.  Prudery is as abnormal as exhibitionism is at the other extreme.  Modesty is Christian, common, and commendable.  Modest people have respect for their bodies (made in the image of God), respect for social norms, and respect for other people.

Both genders should consider proper dress as a sign of elegance, education, and erudition.  A silent statement is made by immodestly dressed people, male and female: “I don’t think much of myself, and I don’t expect you to value or respect me either.”

In many churches on Sunday morning, it is almost a Sunday Morning Slutwalk with bouncing boobs, cavernous cleavage, gyrating hips, skintight pants (male and female), and skirts slit front, back, and both sides.  It seems tempting, tantalizing, and taunting are parts of some modern women’s arsenal.

Feminists and others seek to remove all responsibility from women for the reactions they get from men because of seductive clothing, while most lusting men put the responsibility for their temptation totally upon the women!  However, smearing honey all over yourself and then strolling through bear country does invite attack by bears!

If the way women dress is not an invitation to men, then why do prostitutes dress the way they do? A good woman will dress to be modest and attractive, instead of modern and alluring. Street walking prostitutes feel a need to dress in salacious clothing to compete with other women.

Exposing the female body and doing the “come on” bit will also attract predator men. Immodest girls are like pigs rolling around in the mud and shouldn’t be surprised when men treat them like pigs.

Many women refuse to admit that their clothing sends a message to others. If they dress like a harlot, they will be perceived as a harlot even when it is not true. Proverbs 7:10 makes clear that dress is associated with prostitution: “And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.”

All women who dress provocatively are not trying to attract men; some are simply careless, thoughtless, or trying to be relevant. However, it is wrong, and their husbands should remind them of the danger of advertising without trying to do so. Proverbs 11:22 says, “As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.” Principled women will seek to be appropriate, wise, and thoughtful of how they are perceived.

It is normal for men to react to exposed breasts and other parts of the female body.  That is the way God made them.  It would be abnormal if they did not react to the exposed female body.  However, men are responsible for their own impure, illegal, and iniquitous thoughts and actions.  Moreover, mere attraction is not lust, but it often leads to lust.

Normal men like to see female skin, but how much skin is permitted?  Some Muslim women are forced to cover their entire bodies except the eyes and hands; others even hide their eyes!  That would be considered going far past modesty to prudery.

The absence of modesty among females is an egregious problem, but I must emphatically state that however wickedly women dress, it does not justify lecherous men’s abusive actions.  While lust is natural, it is naturally sinful.  It dehumanizes the female when a man takes her for himself (even mentally), often to prove superiority over her as well as to satisfy unpermitted personal cravings.

Decent people should ask themselves not only what is acceptable but also what is appropriate for each occasion.  It is a joy to meet a person with a happy smile, pure heart, and noble intentions who is modest, kind, humble, and genuine.  Not many out there!

I’ll be considered naïve and self-righteous for even suggesting they should be out there!

Young boys used to look at National Geographic for naked bodies, strange piercings, and tattoos. In this day, it is easy to see about anything everywhere, even observing leading members of some Evangelical and Fundamentalist churches.

Politicians Go Into Politics to do Good and End Up Doing Very Well—As Did Hunter Biden and His Dad! Fri, 30 Sep 2022 16:15:49 +0000 By Don Boys, Ph.D.

A new film has been released dealing with Hunter Biden’s misadventures in parts of the world where he and his father-president almost broke their backs carrying away baskets-full of cash. Newsweek reported that the film made “accusations of criminal activity against Hunter and Joe Biden, sex, drug misuse, scandal, exploitation and murder.”

In 2019, Biden was worth 1.5 million dollars, and today is worth 9 million. After he left the office of Vice President in January 2017, he earned “more than $15 million in a little more than two years! Much of it was from speeches that paid him $200,000 per speech. Come now, simple ones, who would even suggest that Biden could say anything worth $20? Now that he is President, his speeches will be worth even more. Well, they won’t be worth more money, but he will be paid more. Big difference.

Biden’s son Hunter has done very well in business because of his association with a China bank while his dad was vice president. Plus, the Daily Mail reported that Hunter “was paid $83,333 a month by Ukrainian gas company to be a ‘ceremonial figure,’” and Hunter’s firm was paid a total of $3.4 million! Also, the daughters of Clinton and Bush greatly benefited from their family association.

The younger Biden will be fortunate if he does not spend time in the hoosegow. And Dad will be fortunate if he is not impeached next year.

The New York Post reported that five members of Joe’s family also got rich because of connections with Joe. Astonishingly, Hunter was paid $3.5 million via wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the richest woman in Russia and the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow. No one knows what Hunter did to deserve the money. I wonder if the IRS has asked him about the money.

One of the most unsavory politicians today is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Her wealth has increased from $41 million to nearly $115 million since 2004! Wow, she must really know the stock market or has a fantastic financial advisor. Her five most-traded stocks in the last two years were Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, and Google—all top stocks. However, those stocks were all affected by pending legislation under her control.

Surely, she would not use her position to enhance her personal wealth since that’s devious, dishonest, and downright dumb. It’s called a conflict of interest. Do you think Nancy would support a bill prohibiting any elected official from dealing in the stock market while in office?

America has been portrayed as the land of milk and honey, but most politicians know it is the land of milk and money. And they care little for the milk but have an insatiable taste for money.

Thus, an honest politician appears on the scene as often as a chaste prostitute does. Proof of that statement is seen in former U.S. Presidents getting rich after they leave office. Sometimes it is blatant fraud, and other times, it is less obvious, like a politician who uses his influence and contacts to promote his books, business, or boondoggle. And ends up getting filthy rich when out of office.

Most politicians seem to have resolved to do as little work as possible while in office but carry away as much cash as they can. America has the best politicians that money can buy, reminiscent of H. L. Mencken’s quip, “Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.”

President Thomas Jefferson said, “I have the consolation, too, of having added nothing to my private fortune during my public service, and of retiring with hands as clean as they are empty.”

Obviously, Jefferson was in the minority.

The media revealed that former President Obama (I love to write that!) purchased a home in Martha’s Vineyard worth $15 million, proving once again that public service pays big. Their net worth is now $70 million.

Many politicians disprove the adage, “Crime does not pay,” since going into public service to do good, they end up doing very well.

As a Christian Conservative, I firmly believe in free enterprise, personal initiative, and capital accumulation—as long as everything is honest and high principles are practiced. It is one thing to write an informative book that is in demand and another to accept a directorship on a board of a company of which the former president or relative has no knowledge. He is selling his name and accrued prestige without providing any other value to the business. However, the norm seems to be for politicians to “do public service” for a few years and then trade on that service to make big bucks by taking seats on various Boards of Directors, becoming lobbyists, signing book contracts, etc. Especially etc.

Ben Franklin, while in Europe in 1777, wrote to a friend about public service in America declaring, “In America, salaries, where indispensable, are extremely low, but much of public business is done gratis. The honor of serving the public ably and faithfully is deemed sufficient. Public spirit really exists there, and has great effects. In England it is universally deemed a nonentity, and whoever pretends to it is laughed at as a fool, or suspected as a knave.”

At the Constitutional Convention, the men came at a sacrifice; Madison was there using borrowed funds. Such sacrificial acts are unknown today.

Gerald Ford was a very lackluster U.S. President, yet he showed an impressive ability to make over a million dollars within a year of leaving the White House. His worth at death was $7 million.

Even Richard Nixon managed to turn a fiasco into financial success. Without a wealthy family or business to support him, he left $15 million to his wife. While he refused to follow the lucrative speech-making circuit, he wrote seven successful books and invested in California real estate.

Jimmy Carter “was broke” when he left the White House. Still, with a few book deals, his million-dollar Nobel Peace Prize, and his professorship at Emory University, he parlayed his holdings to $7 million.

Ronald Reagan, a B movie star, was financially comfortable when elected President but increased his wealth when leaving office. He received $2 million for two weeks of speeches in Japan, causing much criticism from the media. Even some principled conservatives were discouraged, distressed, and disgusted by that caper. When he died, he and Nancy were worth $38 million.

Bill Clinton admitted, “I’ve never had any money until I got out of the White House, but I’ve done reasonably well since then.” Well, that’s an understatement. After driving away from the White House, he began making speeches for up to $500,000 a pop. Does anyone, including Democrat fanatics, think any Clinton speech is worth that? How about $50? He and Hillary have made more than $230 million since leaving the White House.

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Bill and Hillary, is worth about $15 million. She raked in $9 million while serving on a corporate board from 2011.  One of Bush’s daughters is worth $4 million.

Come on now, friend. No one believes those lightweights could have done that if they were Smith and Jones.

Forbes revealed that Obama came to Washington in 2005, making $85,000 per year as a college professor, and has made $20 million since arriving in Washington. He signed a $65 million book deal and is paid $400,000 per speech. Public service pays off in a big way, and his net worth is now $70 million.

George W. Bush put his holdings in a trust in 2000 and had no idea of their worth, not having any ability to influence the trust officials who made all investment decisions. Bush earned $7 million for the first 1.5 million copies of Decision Points.

Forbes reported that Trump was worth 4.5 billion before his election, and as of September of 2021, his worth was down to $3.5 billion. So, Trump is the only President whose worth has decreased. Yet, his enemies accuse him of using his office to advance himself financially—even though he gave his presidential salary to charities!

Harry Truman wrote, “I have a very strong feeling about any man who has the honor of being an occupant of the White House in the greatest job in the history of the world, who would exploit that situation in any way, shape or form.” I agree with Harry.

Truman rejected many lucrative six-figure endorsement deals, consulting fees, and other offers that inundated him in 1953 until he moved back to Missouri after leaving office. He was paid $100,000 per year as President and received no retirement! He lived off his $112.56 monthly pension from his service in the Army Reserve and whatever he saved from his salary while in office.

It seems most of our members of Congress and presidents have sold their names—and their honor. But then, they wore a symbolic sign around their neck at their election party: “I’m for sale to the highest bidder—make me an offer.” They professed they went into “public service” to do good, but they ended up doing well—very well.

The Royal Family Has One Scandal After Another—Time to Shut it Down? Sat, 24 Sep 2022 17:29:58 +0000 By Don Boys, Ph.D.

King Charles of the United Kingdom made the decision to be known as Charles III, and I hope he remembers that Charles I was beheaded in 1649, the only British sovereign to be executed. Charles I was a tyrant who believed in “the divine right of kings,” meaning to oppose him was to oppose God. The English Parliament did not see it that way, and a bloody civil war began ending with the beheading of Charles.

Charles III will not suffer such a demeaning and disastrous fate, but his reign will be a debacle for Britain.

After Queen Elizabeth died, the Royal Beekeeper made his way to the royal bee farms on the grounds of Clarence House and Buckingham Palace and carried out a ceremony many centuries old: informing the royal bees that the Queen had passed away. I am sure the bees were stung by the shocking news. This ancient custom is “telling the bees” about any major news in the Royal Family and must be done in a “hushed tone.”

That silly custom is almost as useless as the monarchy itself, in my humble opinion. One study revealed that only 46 percent of Brits prefer to keep the monarchy. Many Brits are saying it is time to ditch the crown. After all, being born into the Royal Family is no qualification for ruling. Besides, who today will try to defend a class-based society?

Ditching the monarchy would save Brits $102 million each year. It would also keep them from having to apologize for their royals’ haughty and naughty behavior. More precisely, their sleazy and slutty behavior.

In full disclosure, I have never been impressed with royalty. I cringe at the thought of bowing to any human. In fact, I will not do so. While writing this, I remember being in an old African village where the only way to enter the chief’s throne room was to bow while walking through a very low door. I refused to enter. If I bow, it will be my choice, not forced on me. As a free American, I bow to no man. I cringe when I see Brits kissing the hand of Charles. I would not kiss any part of Charles or any other human in recognition of their special place. Most royals are pompous, pampered, privileged dolts.

So, I am anti-monarchical from the get-go. Keep that in mind as you read the soap opera known as British Royalty.

In 2016, the Spectator called on Prince Charles to renounce his place in the line of succession before the 90-year-old Queen died. Others had suggested, some rather strongly, it was time to put the Royal Family aside and continue to lurch into the future as a declining, once-great nation. After all, the Royal Family has received numerous gut punches from scandal after scandal after scandal. And scandal.

Only referring to a few past scandals:

King Edward VIII rejected the crown in 1936, so he could marry a divorced American woman, moved to Paris, and supported Hitler, all resulting in shock waves around the world for many years. He was a fornicator preferring married women.

Princess Margaret’s affair with Captain Peter Townsend ended with Townsend divorcing his wife and Margaret calling off the marriage in 1955.

Princess Anne, the only daughter of Elizabeth II, married Mark Phillips in 1973, and in 1989, a British newspaper revealed her affair with British naval officer Timothy Laurence. In 1992, she divorced Phillips and married Laurence.

Elizabeth’s son Prince Andrew married Sarah Ferguson in 1986, but six years later, she was caught vacationing with American John Bryan. There were incriminating photos, one of him licking Fergie’s foot. Andrew was not a happy camper, and they were divorced in 1996 as he went on to teenage conquests yet to be resolved in court.

The Daily Record and other media reported on Prince Andrew’s involvement in a “sex-slave” scandal. There were accusations that Andy had been involved in an orgy with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and at least eight teenage girls. Andrew was considered best friends with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. Rather than deal with the charges, Andy was sent to bed without his supper. The charges are still pending, and Andy (only 6% approval) could spend the rest of his life in the pokey.  

But don’t bet the farm on it because the royals are a special class.

The Sun published naked photos of Prince Harry at a Las Vegas party in 2012, proving that what happens in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas. Harry settled down somewhat and married an American actress, divorcée Meghan Markle who was living with a man before meeting Harry, with whom she continued her cohabitation. For those educated in public schools, that is Latin for shack up. Harry and Meghan now live in California and have caused heartburn to the Royals by their tell-all interviews or, more correctly, their whining about the difficulty of royal living. Meghan reported that the Royal Family was fearful that her children would be black since she is a mulatto. But that didn’t seem to hinder Obama who is also half white.

Prince William and Kate seem to be an ideal couple, but like most couples, they started living together before their marriage. The Archbishop of York endorsed Prince William and Kate’s decision to live together before marriage, saying that many modern couples want to “test the milk before they buy the cow.” However, he did not consult my longtime Friend (whom the archbishop pretends to represent) before giving that advice. I don’t think Kate appreciated being compared to a cow.

Conversations (rumors) have circulated for a few years that all is not well at home. The Daily Mail reported that William “has always had a roving eye,” and a reporter for The Times posted, then deleted, a tweet by royal reporter Giles Coren, “I know about the affair, everyone knows about the affair.” He referred to William’s affair with a friend and neighbor.

The future king denied the affair with Rose Hanbury, a neighbor and longtime friend of Kate. During Kate’s third pregnancy, William allegedly found “companionship” with his female friend and neighbor. Rose’s husband is 23 years her senior, and he travels often. When confronted by Kate, William was told to stop associating not only with Rose but also with her husband, who was William’s longtime friend.  The two couples had double-dated in their university years.

I hope they survive the crowning, clawing, and crowing of royal life, but immorality is common everywhere, especially in privileged circles. Even if the adultery is true, there is always the possibility of remorse, repentance, and reconciliation.

King Charles is not without his problems.  His longtime adultery with Camilla (now his wife and Queen Consort, whatever that is) is legendary. Princess Diana groupies often blame Charles and his longtime zipper problem for Diana’s miserable life and tragic death. (Some declared she was killed on orders of the Queen for her affair with a Muslim.) But then, Diana was a bed hopper, and even her stepmother called her a whore for dating Muslim men.

But then, adultery seems to be in the royal DNA and comes with the pomp and ceremony of a monarchy, although a Man I know, a good Friend, rejected that premise long ago and even authoritatively declared that it was adultery if a man even imagined an illicit affair in his mind.

Queen Elizabeth was at the center of a tax scandal when leaked documents revealed that she invested as much as $13.2 million in offshore tax havens. But remember, there is a difference between avoiding taxes and evading taxes.

On September 19, 2022, The Sunday Times  revealed that Charles “accepted a suitcase containing $1 million in cash from a controversial Qatari politician.” The Times reported it “was one of three lots of cash, totaling €3 million [$3 billion], which Prince Charles personally received from Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, the former prime minister of Qatar.” That incident is still rattling windows all over Europe.

But that is only the most recent royal scandal.

The new king has other problems since the British police launched a criminal investigation into one of his charities—The Prince’s Foundation earlier this year. It is alleged that Charles reportedly “traded royal honors” for donations to his various charities. His Foundation, run by Michael Fawcett, is highly respected but is being investigated, according to The Sunday Times of London, for receiving about $1.5 million to Charles’s charities in exchange for British citizenship for a Saudi businessman.

Fawcett allegedly wrote to Saudi businessman Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz in 2017, indicating the Saudi businessman would get a knighthood, British citizenship, and additional private face-to-face meetings with Charles. Oh my, not even a prince or king can get away with such misuse of trust. Charles responded as expected—like the backslidden Baptist piano player in a whorehouse who swore he didn’t know what was going on upstairs.

Whatever, Charles’ Foundation got a bushel of money, and Mahfouz got “private meetings with the prince and a private ceremony at Buckingham Palace in November 2016, when Charles awarded the Saudi with an ‘honorary’ CBE.” The Saudi also had some benches, a wooded area, and gardens named for him.  CBE stands for Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. 

Charles’ aid, Fawcett, was temporarily suspended from leadership in the Foundation, and many questioned whether he would or could make such deals without Charles’ knowledge. Fawcett had been Charles’ fundraiser for 30 years, raising over £60 million! There are numerous existing photos of Charles schmoozing with foreign elites at Foundation dinners. It seems the foreign guests with more money than character apparently “paid up to £500,000 for an opulent dinner with Charles.” The British public wants to know if Charles knew his aide arranged those dinners, invited the guests, and picked up generous checks for Charles’ Foundation.

Furthermore, is influence peddling acceptable if done for charity, and is it abhorrent for average people to do so but appropriate for a King?

Fawcett began his rise to the Big Time as a humble valet in Buckingham Palace in 1982 and rose to be the constant companion to Charles. He has resigned twice before after charges of bullying and selling to the highest buyer various gifts to the Royal Family, taking a generous handler’s fee for himself. He is known as “Fawcett the Fence.” He fenced royal gifts with Charles’ knowledge, according to the Daily Mail. That sounds like some old-fashioned American sleaze.

The Sun reported that the prince never traveled without Fawcett, “who provided the luxury he demanded day and night.” There have been many charges that Fawcett did far more than was expected. There have been many accusations of a sexual relationship between the two men, but I withhold judgment on that issue since all involved are a gaggle of liars, adulterers, thieves, and arrogant scumbags.

If the past is an indication of the future, Fawcett will be admonished, Charles will be absolved, and the loudest critics will be attacked. And the Empire will continue to lurch into another dung pile next month.

It will be interesting if Fawcett is appointed to a high position in the reign of Charles III.

The Daily Mail reported that convicted pedophile Joseph Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell (socialite sex offender) “vacationed at the Queen’s very own Cabin.” It seems the Royals tend to be friends with the dregs of society. Why would Queen Elizabeth have any kind of relationship with such lowlifes? But then, she has been around them all her life. Lord Mountbatten (former Royal killed by the IRA) mentor to Charles, was a flaming pedophile, and Jimmy Savile had easy access to the palace and royal functions.

Jimmy Savile was a serial predator and a top entertainer in the British media, however, after his death (at age 84) in 2011, it was determined he had been a vicious pedophile abusing about 500 girls as young as 2 and as old as 75 beginning in 1963. He also admitted to sex with the dead!

Much of his stomach-churning abuse took place in hospitals where he volunteered. He was so impressive and powerful that Prince Charles, now King Charles was a friend and used him as an unofficial adviser. Even the Conservative Margaret Thatcher entertained Savile at her home and promoted his knighthood.  The unmarried Savile was an informal marriage counselor for Charles and Diana in the late 1980s! With his close association with the Royal Family, he received the OBE, and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth.

Savile was a good example of a corrupt system—the monarchy, the media, and a senile public unwilling to confront, challenge, and convict a marauding pedophile even glorified him.  Moreover, awarding high royal honors to a predator pedophile is like putting whipped cream on a putrid onion.

I don’t have a vote on the matter, but from a friend across the pond, I say, do away with the monarchy and force all the royal snobs to get a real job.
