Don Boys Common Sense for Today Tue, 18 Jan 2022 19:08:42 +0000 en-US hourly 1 U.S. Universities Are a Joke, But You Are Funding Them! Tue, 18 Jan 2022 19:05:55 +0000  


Universities used to be places where students struggled with English, calculus, chemistry, accounting, etc., with occasional breaks for a football or basketball game. Not anymore. There are numerous non-academic distractions, discussions, and debates that (after four years) produce frivolous, foolish frauds leaving with a degree they can hardly read–literally!

In 2018, it was revealed that a teacher even taught high school social studies for 17 years and was a certified teacher but could not read or write.

U.S. education has been on a slippery slope for a long time, and many schools have already tumbled upon the garbage heap below. According to an educational assessment report, the average U.S. college freshman reads at a seventh-grade level, so the incompetence goes back to the earliest grades.

But, since universities are corrupt with unskilled professors and a flawed educational agenda, how can anyone expect students to leave such schools competent, confident, and clearheaded?

Brown University is making some changes to its program, but changes that will have no positive impact on educating students. One change is its graduate school application that will allow applicants to “self-identify” as persons of color. Even color is no longer absolute. Be whatever you want—red, yellow, black, or white. It’s called a “pretend game.”  Most children pretend but join the real world when they mature.

The inmates took over the asylum many years ago, but now they are running universities, but unlike asylums, university professors have tenure, basically an academic union card.

Fordham University’s Political Science department announced that it had voted unanimously to adopt a new policy regarding students’ preferred names and gender pronouns. The policy mandates that professors must use a student’s “preferred” name and pronouns. I remember when universities called a student “mister” or “miss,” but that was back when dinosaurs walked the earth.

The University of Connecticut, Cal State Los Angeles, University California Davis, and the University of California Berkeley, among others, provide racially segregated dorms for black racists. Wait a minute; I thought it was illegal, immoral, and at least insensitive to have policies based on race. Do these schools want to propel racists into society?

Of course they do, since everything is about race, and it is the globalists’ agenda to cause friction and hate between groups and classes of citizens—and keep progressives in power.

Even vicious felons such as former Weather Underground radical Kathy Boudin can find positions at major universities. Kathy spent 22 years in prison for an armed robbery that resulted in the killing of two cops and a guard. Still, she parlayed her “fame” into a prestigious adjunct professorship at Columbia University’s School of Social Work. Evidently, Dick Tracy was wrong: crime does pay, big time.

Yasir Kazi, an American imam, [and] was a professor at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, teaching that Christians were “filthy” in the sight of Allah. The Times newspaper reported Yasir told students that “killing homosexuals and stoning adulterers was part of their religion.” He now works as a resident scholar of the East Plano Islamic Center in Plano, Texas.

According to a report from The College Fix, the peer-reviewed academic journal Research on Diversity in Youth Literature published an article in February that contended that books by Dr. Seuss are racist. The paper was authored by Katie Ishizuka of The Conscious Kid Library and Ramón Stephens, a doctoral student at the University of California, San Diego. In March of 2021, Dr. Seuss’ publisher pulled six of his books from publication. They were considered racist.

I think I know who the racists are.

Black Rutgers University Professor Brittany Cooper, who previously argued that Jesus was “queer,” stated on NPR that the concept of time is owned by white people. According to a report from The College Fix, Cooper is arguing that the modern conceptualization of time is racist. I believe Rutgers and Cooper have a major problem, but they deserve each other.

It seems black university professors make pronouncements trying to prove they are clinically insane or are least certified idiots. Either way, they should not be within a hundred yards of anyone under 21 years of age.

Dr. Christine Fair is an anti-Trumper professor at Georgetown University who advocated for the murder and castration of white Republican men! During the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination hearings, she tweeted that the white members of the committee are “entitled white men justifying a serial rapists’ arrogated entitlement” and that they “deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps.” Fair continued, “Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”

Wow, Fair is a real sweetheart.

Georgetown University responded by saying her expressions did not violate the university’s policies. But then, the Catholic university is so far in left field that nothing could violate its policies. Well, that is unless you are a born-again Christian happily married to the opposite sex who home schools eight children, and all are lifetime members of the National Rifle Association—with concealed permits. However, even Georgetown University has its limits, and Fair was finally “placed on research leave.” That was a “paid” research leave.

That’s called damage control, but there was too much damage to control.

Gutless university officials and their Boards of Trustees are pathetic professional prostitutes, and uncaring, unprincipled, and unthinking donors who funded such absurd idiocy are in the same category.

On Fair’s Twitter page, she identified herself as a “Scholar of South Asian pol-mil affairs, inter-sectional feminist, pit-bull apostle, scotch devotee, nontheist, resister.” Her Twitter heading is too vulgar to reveal here.

Here is some free advice for Fair from a committed Bible-believing Christian: Drawing on my psychology training and scriptural understanding and family counseling, she needs to find a good, strong, gun-toting, hardworking man and somehow convince him to marry her and after a honeymoon of hunting grizzly bears in Montana, settle down to conceiving a brood of children whom she homeschools and bakes cookies for them and her husband’s lunch box. That will keep her away from twisting young minds and ruining them for life.

After due consideration, what goes for black professors goes for white professors. It should be considered child abuse for them to be within shouting distance of students under 21.

Feminist Lillian Carter, an associate professor at Towson University, purportedly denied students the opportunity to do a pro-life project while openly supporting abortion and Planned Parenthood. She also encouraged them to masturbate. See my suggestion in the previous paragraph.

Student council members at the University of Wisconsin-Madison protest the campus practice of serving ice cream, which often contains beef gelatin. This ingredient makes the treat unacceptable to members of certain faiths and diets.

Obviously, university students are as stupid as university professors. But then, students eventually become professors if they pilfer or purchase enough reports, dissertations, etc., to finally grab the degree they can hardly read.

Harvard is supposed to be at the top of elite American ivy league schools and one of the most expensive; however, I would be greatly disappointed if one of my grand or great-grandchildren enrolled there. After taking off a year for COVID, the over-rated university had its annual student-led Sex Week in November after beginning in 2011. Students were exposed to all kinds of sex perversion, including BDSM which is sexual activity involving such practices as the use of physical restraints, the granting and relinquishing of control, and the infliction of pain. Bondage restricts a partner with “ropes, handcuffs, or other restraints,” while sadomasochism refers to “pleasure that a partner may feel from either inflicting pain (sadism) or receiving pain (masochism), either physical or emotional.”

Other universities permit such lewd weeks not wanting to be considered old-fashioned. I suppose they do so in the name of education, but it is really the lethal lemming-like leap over a cliff.

No, my title for this article is wrong. Secular universities are no laughing matter, and they are a financial and academic fraud parading as an educational endeavor. It is child abuse to send shallow, uncritical teens to such ignorance factories and dishonest for such schools to expect any money from taxpayers or from parents.

Never have so many students paid so much money to receive so little, resulting in so much incompetence.

If one is finally graduated from one of these so-called universities and maintains some dignity, discernment, and decency, they can sing fullthroatily, “Free at last, free at last, Praise God almighty, I’m free at last.”

Very Slowly, Informed People, Even Leftists, Admit the Shameful Truth About Martin Luther King, Jr.! Tue, 11 Jan 2022 17:08:32 +0000  

Historically, when despots take control of a free people, they always take guns from everyone and rewrite history. They try to make oppressors into national saviors and turn sincere patriots into thugs. This rewriting of history is happening as I write as leftists distort political and economic reality, destroy true patriots, and deify thugs.

The accurate image of Martin Luther King, Jr. has been reworked, repackaged, and remade into a secular saint by desperate people who can’t argue the issue on his merits but must stoop to manufactured mythology.

But that make-over mythology has been slowly changing with the obviously outrageous and overdone pitches that “vaccines are safe and effective,” “Democrats are naturally good political leaders for the little man,” “a man can become a woman and birth a baby,” and “a nation should welcome anyone and everyone to become citizens.”

Only non-thinking, far-leftist, semi-comatose progressives still believe such poppycock. Some are willing to say so even though honest Conservatives have been aware of the truth for many years. Such people have also looked anew at Martin Luther King, Jr., and admit he had major flaws even if they believe he made a lasting contribution to freedom.

The King issue has been seething, then simmering, then smoldering for decades but is now blazing with the freedom of the internet.

In 2014, Oliver Stone dropped out of writing and directing the much-anticipated MLK film because the King people in Atlanta rejected his script. They refused to permit the truth to be told since Stone planned to deal with “issues of adultery, conflicts within the movement, and King’s spiritual transformation.”

Incredibly, many allegedly honest people do not demand the unpleasant truth about their heroes. It seems many who lean left are basically dishonest people who will do anything to preserve their myths. King’s family and other leftists are still whitewashing his image; after all, big bucks are involved as everyone knows who has dealt with King’s family.

Since King’s birthday is a national holiday, I present the following indisputable facts about King in the interest of a faithful historical record. My readers can decide if I’m a racist or a realist interested in the truth. I would have the same distaste for any man guilty of the practices and principles of King.

King was a pinko, progressive, and closet Communist: King’s very liberal biographer, David J. Garrow, wrote: “King privately described himself as a Marxist.” King’s secretary during the early stage of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, The Rev. Uriah J. Fields wrote, “King helps to advance Communism. He is surrounded with communists.” If that doesn’t bother you, alright, but don’t claim he was only a Socialist.

Liberal black newspaper columnist Carl Rowan attended National Security Council meetings and was permitted to see confidential FBI files on King. Rowan said that King was known to be a Communist since May of 1962 when King’s name was “placed in Section A …tabbed Communist” in the FBI’s files. William Sullivan, Assistant Director of the FBI, concluded at the time that King was “the most dangerous Negro of the future in this nation from the standpoint of communism, the Negro, and national security.” Sullivan was a significant supporter of King!

King was a philander: Roman Catholic priest Richard John Neuhaus said of King: “Dr. King was, for all that was great about him, an adulterer, sexual libertine, lecher, and wanton womanizer.” That’s from a friend!

King’s friendly biographer David J. Garrow revealed to USA Today King’s justification for his sexual immorality: “He [King] explained it as someone on the road 27 days a month and needing sex as a form of anxiety reduction and for emotional solace.”  Oh, well, that makes King’s adultery and betrayal of his marriage and ordination vows acceptable–maybe even commendable to desperate sycophants on the far left!

For those who worship at King’s image, an AP article should be a knockout blow with its heading, “FBI and Abernathy Say King Was a Sex-obsessed ‘Tomcat.’” That was followed by a graphic description of King’s last night on earth. “The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. spent parts of the night before his assassination with two women and then fought physically with a third, according to the memoirs of the Rev. Ralph David Abernathy, King’s top aide.” Preachers are supposed to “fight a good fight” but King perverted that teaching–in spades.

It says much about the King defenders who persist in trying to justify such vile practices.

Assistant Director of the FBI Charles D. Brennan wrote a letter to Senator John P. East of North Carolina stating that King’s activities consisted of “orgiastic and adulterous escapades, some of which indicated that King could be bestial in his sexual abuse of women.”

King was a pervert: Black columnist Carl Rowan reported that the FBI tapes suggest a homosexual relationship between King and his “best friend” Ralph Abernathy! Black talk show host and columnist Tony Brown added more light on this possibility when he reported on King’s banter to Abernathy in one of their hotel rooms. However, it was so vulgar, I will not even disguise King’s request to his “best friend,” Abernathy.

Martin was a prevaricator:  FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover said that King was the “most notorious liar” in America and that “King is a tomcat with obsessive degenerate urges.” King also lied about his name all his life since his name was Michael, not Martin. He lied to his ordination committee; he lied to his wife; he lied on his college and seminary papers; he lied in his books; he lied when he said he fired Communists on his payroll; he lied when he said that twice as many blacks died in Vietnam as whites. Hoover was right.

King was a plagiarist: He stole from others all his life, as was revealed by King’s people in Atlanta who admitted, “King’s plagiarism was a general pattern evident in nearly all of his academic writings….We found that instances of textual appropriation can be seen in his earliest extant writings as well as his dissertation. The pattern is also noticeable in his speeches and sermons throughout his career.” Note King’s family excused his plagiarism calling it “textual appropriation.”

King’s biographer David J. Garrow states: “King’s academic compositions, especially at Boston University, were almost without exception little more than summary descriptions…and comparisons of other’s writings. Nonetheless, the papers almost always received desirable letter grades, strongly suggesting that King’s professors did not expect more….” Why did they not expect more? It is a fact that King stole 66% of his Ph.D. dissertation! It seems Boston University wanted to give a doctorate to an unqualified and dishonest black man, therefore playing the game of “Let’s pretend we are scholars in this academic enterprise.”

In his seminary papers, King copied the research and writings of others, but he also incorporated their many grammatical and theological errors! That is not only academic fraud deserving expulsion, but it is patently stupid and deserves lavish ridicule.

King was a phony: In another paper, King wrote that “the orthodox view of the divinity of Christ is in my mind quite readily denied.” In other papers, King denied Christ’s virgin birth, vicarious death, victorious resurrection, and visible return, as well as the verbal inspiration of Scripture. Martin Luther King was an unbeliever, and that makes him a phony preacher and a phony Christian!

What would be the reaction if a national holiday were suggested to honor a man, even a good man, who had past ties with the Klan or Nazis? Would it not be expected that everyone would demand that he answer some questions and his life be looked at very closely? Why is King an exception? And why did conservatives play this game of whitewashing King’s reputation? Why do important Conservatives continue to praise King without any qualification? Why will some Conservative websites refuse to publish these facts? Obviously, truth is unimportant to unprincipled people.

To sum up: There is no argument about King’s scoundrel-hood. As usual, I’ll be accused of racism, but facts are unmalleable: King was a pinko, a philander, a pervert, a prevaricator, a plagiarist, and a phony. That doesn’t bother most people, but it does bother honest people. Regardless of my motives, truth must be the driving force for left and right.

I will be accused of holding the Archie Bunker Chair for Political Science at Far-Right University because of this article. Still, the cause of truth is not helped when truth is rejected, repackaged, and ridiculed. Principled people can handle the truth, even unpleasant truth.

Peacefully If We Can; Forcefully If We Must But Require All Muslims to Repudiate Koranic Demands! Tue, 04 Jan 2022 18:35:07 +0000 It is long past time for America’s political leaders to face reality: true Islam is violent, vicious, vile, and vulgar. No, not those now skeptical Muslims who have adjusted to American freedom and have acquired a taste for pizza, hamburgers, movies, television, and blue jeans. The people in question are koranic Muslims who are dedicated, dangerous, and deadly people living among us.

And with the hundreds of thousands of unvetted, unwanted, and undeserving gatecrashers at our southern border in recent months, only a fool, a fanatic, or falsifier says there are no terrorists among them.

The nation is churning while the fuse is burning.

Up-front, let’s assume I’m a hater, bigot, know-nothing Baptist. Since that’s out of the way, it doesn’t change the facts above. I may be all as charged, but my facts are indisputable. While I agree with tolerance, it can never be applied to the truth. Truth is unrelenting, unpleasant, and unmalleable. Truth doesn’t change because you don’t like it, nor does it change because the truth-teller is unpleasant, unkind, unlikeable, unfair, or ugly.

Muslims must look in the mirror of truth and not get angry at the mirror because of an ugly image, and it is not the mirror’s fault.

Historically, Muslims have always played the numbers to their advantage. When they are few, they are acquiescent but become active, asinine, and authoritative when they arrive at about 12% of a population.

On November 7, 2021, the Detroit Free Press reported the six-member City Council of Hamtramck “will consist of all Muslims starting in January, another historic first for the metro Detroit city known for its sizable immigrant population.” Additionally, every elective city office is held by a Muslim!

Hamtramck, Michigan, with 22,000 residents, is the first Muslim majority city in America. It was a once-thriving factory town now struggling with one of the highest poverty rates in Michigan. Citizens are awakened each day at 6:00 with a call to prayer (and four more times daily) from the four mosques. Many of the business signs are in Arabic or Bengali. The city’s Polish Catholic population has shrunk from 90% in 1970 to about 11% today. The Polish culture is on the way out, and Sharia is coming.

Dearborn, like Hamtramck, is in the Detroit metropolitan area and is 44% Muslim who control over 100,000 people. Other cities across America are heavily Muslim. Get accustomed to the calls to prayer. They are in your future, and if you thought church bells were a nuisance, you will long to hear them again. Wait until you hear this every day.

Few suggest that the Taliban or Al-Qaeda control either of the cities. Still, only a fool says the influx of people of different religions, races, languages, habits, beliefs, etc., has not changed the area. The Polish polkas are drowned out by the five calls to Muslim prayer each day.

There are 3.5 million Muslims in America, with over 300 working in public office. And they are working at getting other Muslims in offices. Of course, that isn’t illegal, and most groups do that. Blacks do that; homosexuals do that; liberals do that; few conservative Christians do that. You know, you don’t want to appear too pushy, so when conservatives get elected, they “reach out to the other side.”  No one has ever told me why that is done; it’s almost an obligatory move by conservatives. Conservatives should hold all jobs, even menial jobs.

I wouldn’t choose a liberal to walk my dog.

There were 2,769 mosques in the U.S. in 2020, many of them hotbeds of radicalism funding terrorism here and abroad. Many are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, whose slogan is, “Allah is our objective; the Qur’an is the Constitution; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; death for the sake of Allah is our wish.” I agree with the last clause as desirable of all terrorists.

All U.S. Muslims should be required to repudiate the Brotherhood slogan. Upon refusal, they should be escorted to the nearest international airport and removed to the closest desert in the middle east. Or, more cheaply, they should be loaded on a slow freighter to one of Saudi Arabia’s 18 ports.

The books of every mosque must be looked at, and any funding of terrorists will require the U.S. government to freeze all mosque funds and close those mosques. All leaders involved in the funding will be jailed. Some might suggest such action could result in harassment of churches, but freedom of religion does not include the takeover of the American government to institute Sharia law.

The FBI or a special unit should immediately contact every U.S. mosque and require every leader (followed by every member) to swear an oath to an America-first position. I don’t suppose we could demand they swear to “help make America great again.”

Hey, it’s a reasonable thought.

Every Muslim in America should be required to make a solemn oath that U.S. law takes precedence over Sharia law and they are submitting to U.S. law. A nation divided cannot stand.

Every Muslim must repudiate jihad as taught in the Koran. The first example of jihad is found in Sura 2:191 of my Koran, published in Medina. It has an explanatory footnote to make sure even the dullest Muslim understands what the passage means. The passage commands every Muslim to fight (jihad): “Al-Jihad (holy fighting)…is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad, Islam is established…Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim.” Muslim theologians wanted to emphasize that message in a footnote to end the argument as to jihad—holy war.

The only Muslim who can be sure of entering Paradise is one who loses their life while engaged in holy fighting. Jihad is not trying to lose weight, getting along with siblings, working on your marriage, overcoming your temper, etc. It is “holy fighting” in the cause of making every nation on earth a Muslim nation.

World leaders refuse to admit that fact, but they can’t be so stupid to not know it. They simply don’t have the courage, commitment, and character to do the right thing since the “woke” thing is now popular.

We have many thousands of Muslims in America committed to the above, and gutless politicians will be damned soon by gutless citizens who were too stupid to demand responsible reaction to the Islamic attacks on America.

Every Muslim must agree that the sexual mutilation of little girls is bloody, barbaric, and beastly, and all who promote it, even Muslim medical doctors, should spend decades in prison. I would add at hard labor, but probably some bleating hearts might criticize me if I do. Can’t have that.

Every Muslim must agree that the Sharia death penalty for leaving Islam and converting to Christ is mistaken, maddening, and medieval. America was founded on freedom of religion, and a religion that depends on force does not believe in freedom. Muslims love to boast how they swept out of their desert tents to overwhelm all the middle east, even into Europe a few years after Mohammed’s death. They must be reminded they did it with the Sword of Mohammed while Christians civilized the world with the Sword of the Lord known as the Bible.

Every Muslim must agree that honor killings are clearly family murders, and any parent who kills a “wayward” child will hang by the neck or sit in “Old Sparky.” Often, a parent kills a daughter because she was raped, sometimes by a brother, and such parents are lowlife killers. I might add that such killers should be executed with a strip of bacon hanging from each ear. You know, as a final touch of class.

Every Muslim must agree with America’s position that Israel has a right to peacefully exist within secure borders as any other nation. That still leaves room for support of a Palestinian state where fanatics can continue to train their children to be suicide bombers.

Every Muslim must repudiate suicide bombings as twisted, savage, and insane with no justification. Moreover, America must stop supporting the “Palestinians” since they pay parents for their children to become morbid murderers.

Every Muslim must agree that women are special and should be treated kindly, gently, compassionately, tenderly with equal rights to any man. She should have the same standing in a court of law as any man and to require more female witnesses to prove a case whereas one man is sufficient is unlawful. Any divorce will be decided on the same standards for males and females.

Any Muslim who refuses to accept the above minor requirements will be dropped over the Arabian Dessert from the belly of a Lockheed C-5 Galaxy. Oh, of course, wearing a parachute.

After all, Americans are not barbarians recently off a Middle East desert.

Famous Singer Dead in Backseat of His Cadillac from Drug Overdose! Thu, 30 Dec 2021 20:04:41 +0000  

Down through the centuries, each person makes their appearance on the stage of history then passes into oblivion after his allotted time. Few leave this world better than they entered, and few are prepared to die taking care of their finances, insurance, and personal relationships. A few wisely follow the adage of “when it comes time to die, be sure that’s all you have to do.”

In 2016, I wrote about the deaths of many pampered, privileged, and predictable entertainers known for their talent—and their choice of drugs. George Michael, Carrie Fisher, David Bowie, Prince, and many others passed into eternity prematurely because of a lack of wisdom in how they entertained themselves. They permitted themselves to be duped, deceived, and destroyed at a young age.

This calls to mind country singer Hank Williams, Sr., who held the world in his grasp then lost it all in the back seat of his Cadillac, dying from a drug overdose on New Year’s Day, 1953. He was age 29. His long-time manager Merle Kilgore called him “the most cocky, confident man I ever met in my life.” Yet, he was a small man with a very average appearance.

Hank had a string of hits, including “I’m so Lonesome I Could Cry” in 1949, and the haunting “Cold Cold Heart” in 1950, and “Your Cheatin Heart” in 1952. It seems that Williams could massage a song to get the most from it and was proficient with his guitar, but he couldn’t handle fame, money, and life in general. He was often drunk or drugged, even on stage.

With all his advantages, as is true of other entertainers, he lived a shameful, sorry, and sinful life and died a lonely death surrounded by toys, trinkets, and treasure.

His songs reveal that Williams had some exposure to the Gospel. One of his songs shows his knowledge of salvation: “How Can You Refuse Him Now?” The chorus asked: “How can you refuse him now, how can you refuse him now, how can you turn away from His side, with tears in His eyes on the cross there He died, How can you refuse Jesus now?” Hank obviously refused Him.

He wrote his famous “I Saw the Light” in 1948, although the melody was exactly the same as the Chuck Wagon Gang’s 1935 country gospel song, “He Set Me Free.” Williams often sang that song as if he was a man facing the end, desperate to believe in a salvation he didn’t think existed. Was he trying to convince himself of the reality of the Gospel? He sang: “I wandered so aimless, life filled with sin; I wouldn’t ask my dear Saviour in. Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night; Praise the Lord, I saw the light! The chorus went, “I saw the light, I saw the light. No more darkness; no more night. Now I’m so happy, no sorrow in sight. Praise the Lord, I saw the light!”

But Hank was not happy but hopeless and hapless.

The second verse: “Just like a blind man I wandered alone, Worries and fears I claimed for my own. Then like the blind man that Jesus gave back his sight; Praise the Lord, I saw the light!”

The third verse: “I was a fool to wander astray, For straight is the gate and narrow is the way. Now I have traded the wrong for the right; Praise the Lord, I saw the light!” But Hank apparently never saw the light! He usually closed his shows with this famous song.

Near the end of his life, he was doing a show in San Diego but stumbled drunk off stage after only two songs. His friend, country performer Minnie Pearl, tried to sober him as they rode around town in the back seat of his Cadillac so he could do his second show. She got him to join her in singing “I Saw the Light,” thinking it might help sober him, but after one verse, Hank put his head in his hands and said, “O Minnie,  Minnie, I don’t see no light. There ain’t no light.”

But there was light, but Hank refused it.

On January 1, 1953, Williams died in the back seat of his Cadillac near Beckley, WV on the way to a concert in Charleston, WV. He was to do a show the next day in Canton, OH, in the Memorial Auditorium. Williams’ Drifting Cowboys band opened the Ohio show with a spotlight on the curtain after the packed crowd was told that Hank Williams had died the previous day. The band behind the curtain sang, “I Saw the Light.”

More than 20,000 people attended his funeral on January 4 at Montgomery’s (AL) Municipal Auditorium, where an overflow crowd listened via loudspeakers. Roy Acuff sang, “I Saw the Light,” as Hank’s body lay in front of him in its silver casket. Acuff was joined by Bill Monroe, Little Jimmie Dickens, Carl Smith, Red Foley, Webb Pierce, and others. Dickens began weeping uncontrollably during the song. It seemed appropriate to this massive crowd of fans that Hank’s “closure” song was used to end his last public appearance—his funeral.

Williams is buried in Montgomery, and across the front of his vast tombstone are the words, “Praise the Lord, I Saw the Light.” What a tragedy that a man could talk, write, and sing about seeing the light and apparently never see it. His last release was a single titled “I’ll Never Get Out of this World Alive.”

We are on this earth for only a few years, and it is foolish, freakish, and fatal to destroy our health by drug and tobacco addiction, riotous living, and undisciplined eating and drinking. Hopefully, in this New Year, we will be more disciplined, dedicated, and determined to live a life that is honorable with no dependence on illegal drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and gluttonous eating.

We only have one life, and we are fools to waste it. There is no second chance, and it is useless to think, talk, write, look, and sing about the Light. Or, to stare at the Light.

One must accept the Light! Then walk in it.

OK, I Took the Shot; Now, What Can I Do? Tue, 28 Dec 2021 15:17:43 +0000 We seem to have a pandemic of the vaccinated since official data reveals “91% of covid-19 deaths have been among the fully vaccinated since August.” Still, health officials act as if the jab is the answer (along with masks and lockdowns) when it is now the cause of our health problems.

A Denmark study confirms rare heart risk from Moderna jab and the CDC warns Americans NOT to get J&J shot because of blood clot risk following nine deaths since the shot can cause serious blood clots. Moreover, a Columbia University study revealed the true U.S. COVID vaccine death count is 400,000, not 20,000!

But it gets even worse! 

Some independent physicians have declared that vaccines will produce long-term unknown effects far worse than the virus!

Unsafe, unproven, and unnecessary vaccines were not the answer, and a bell once rung can never be un-rung as a gunshot can never be un-shot. Moreover, a vaccination once given can never be un-given.

However, you can pray! Pray! Pray! And eat a Mediterranean diet, exercise, get 20 minutes of sunshine each day, and take a handful of vitamins daily. More about that is below.

And pray some more.

On November 8, 2021, the American Heart Association published a shattering abstract dealing with COVID vaccines in Circulation. That abstract led Dr. Vernon Coleman to write, “Finally! Medical Proof the Covid jab is ‘Murder.’” Coleman says the study is proof that the experimental shots must “stop today.” He adds: “I believe that any doctor or nurse who gives one of the mRNA covid jabs after today will in due course be struck off the appropriate register and arrested.”


A new German study provides shocking reasons not to take the vaccine. The study concluded that “Complete vaccination increases the likelihood of death.”  It stated, “the higher the vaccination rate, the higher the excess mortality.”

Ok, that’s bad news, but what of those who took the shot and now realize their mistake? What can they expect to suffer from long-term effects, and how can they mitigate the vaccines’ delayed but dangerous even deadly effects?

Since no studies have been done, no one knows all the physical ramifications of the vaccines’ consequences or the long-term results of COVID infection. Undoubtedly, each person’s health and age will influence various solutions and determine multiple results. Some shootees may not have any adverse longtime physical impacts, although my untutored opinion is everyone will regret getting the shots.

However, you must realize that both groups—frontline doctors and federal health officials—could be wrong and right about this issue. After all, education in America has been dumbed down for at least fifty years therefore many doctors can’t think critically. There might be a conspiracy to thin the human race (so-called), or it may be simply incompetent and greedy vaccine makers. It’s also possible that the critical, independent physicians could be too cautious, careless, and critical of establishment health officials.

And maybe some people were helped by the vaccine while others were killed or paralyzed depending on the individual bodies involved.

I suppose the two above paragraphs could be correct, but I doubt it, and my equivocation is enough to gag a maggot. I detest being in the middle of the road, but there might be one chance it a million that my hedging is justified. However, it seems only wise to try to reverse the shots’ results.

Drs. Mike Yeadon, Luc Montagnier (Nobel Prize winner), and Vladimir Zelenko believe the COVID-19 shots could reduce life expectancy several decades. As to the shot’s effect on reproduction, they say, “There is an absolute effect on fertility.” Zelenko says, “We just don’t know to what degree yet.” Drs. Stephanie Seneff and Judy Mikovits agree with that claim.

video clip  of Dr. Dolores Cahill, a professor at the medical school at the University College Dublin in Ireland, claims that “COVID-19 mRNA vaccines will cause widespread deaths in the coming years.” Cahill, the most censored Irish citizen, alleges “anyone who’s over 70 who gets one of these mRNA vaccines will probably be — sadly die within about two to three years.” The professor says that any vaccinated person of any age can expect to die “within five to 10 years.”

The medical establishment vigorously declares there is no medical evidence for such shocking claims. And she may be a shock doc.

However, the medical establishment lost some credibility last week when four young international soccer stars died after suffering sudden heart attacks.

The CDC website assures us, “Serious side effects that could cause a long-term health problem are extremely unlikely following any vaccination, including COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccine monitoring has historically shown that side effects generally happen within six weeks of receiving a vaccine dose. For this reason, the FDA required each of the authorized COVID-19 vaccines to be studied for at least two months (eight weeks) after the final dose. Millions of people have received COVID-19 vaccines, and no long-term side effects have been detected.”

“Eight weeks” does not qualify as long-term.

While some claim the vaccine helped them, no one can be sure about future consequences. One vaccine critic wrote, “Let’s say you have a really bad head cold so you take a new medication that you think will relieve the pain. And–sure enough– an hour after taking the pills– Presto — your congestion and headache are completely gone. That’s fantastic, right? Wrong, because what you fail to realize is that the medication is laced with slow-acting strychnine that kills you three days later. Do you still think it was a good idea to take the medication?”

What makes federal health officials think there won’t be severe effects from COVID vaccines in the near and distant future? They tell us the vaccine is eliminated quickly from the body, which is untrue since it has been found to stay in the body for up to 29 days. Officials say the vaccine remains in the shoulder area, but that is not true. We are told vaccine side effects show up within weeks, if at all—which is a misleading statement. How many weeks: five or 15 or 50 weeks?

Officials tell us some rare side effects from COVID vaccines must be weighed against the known, higher risks from contracting COVID. However, studies have proved that it is the elderly that are at risk, and if they are treated with HCQ or ivermectin (check the miracle of Uttar Pradesh) shortly after an infection, a large majority survive.

Only parents who religiously obey whatever the AMA and their family physicians say, or morons have their children vaccinated when there is practically no danger of children contracting COVID. Or, if infected, they seldom experience serious consequences. So, why expose children to the vaccine risks everyone knows are there?

Vaccinating those not at risk is unprecedented; however, the vaccines must be sold. Moreover, I have visions of a foolish, false, flip-flopping Fauci who has visions of a Nobel Prize for medicine dancing in his head, but the world would be safer if he were thinking of sugar plums.

If I were Fauci, I wouldn’t purchase my ticket to Stockholm just yet.

With so many deaths, diseases, and disabilities following the COVID vaccinations, it is criminal that politicians and physicians continue to search the countryside for unconvinced, uncooperative, and unvaccinated critics. Federal health officials, like the Medieval Church, claim everyone as converts, even the unbelievers, but must make it official: a jab in the arm, not water on the head. They want everyone to “hit the sawdust trail” with sleeves rolled up for a quick jab. Salvation is guaranteed.

However, their guarantees are worthless.

It seems the end of the deaths is not in sight, and there is an enormous amount of buyer’s remorse from those who got the vaccine and boosters. So, what to do besides pray? The bell can’t be un-rung, but you can be sure not to ring it again. No fourth or fifth shot! Thoughtfully consider what an “expert” says but think for yourself. Don’t rush. Seek additional advice.

Following are some practical steps for those who have the vaccine still in their system. We are told that damage has been done, but some steps can be taken to mitigate the shots.

Dr. Thomas E. Levy wrote, “When the entirety of the protocol is not possible or feasible, which is most often the case, the combination of H.P. [Hydrogen peroxide] nebulization, high-dose vitamin C, and appropriately-dosed ivermectin is an excellent way to effectively address long-haul COVID and persistent spike protein syndromes.”

He continued, “With the ‘foundation’ of H.P. nebulization and vitamin C supplementation in place, the best prescription medicines to counter long-haul COVID and circulating spike protein would be with ivermectin first, and then HCQ or H.Q. if the clinical response is not acceptable. Dosages would need to be determined by the prescribing physician.”

The hit job done on HCQ and ivermectin is far more disgusting, damaging, even deadly than the health scandal of the Tuskegee syphilis study when federal health officials watched syphilis-infected black men die—for medical science, of course.

Or the Thalidomide Tragedy (“biggest man‐made medical disaster ever”), when a generation of severe birth defects shortened and twisted the limbs of over 10,000 babies.

Then there was the polio scandal that has been lost in America’s memory hole.  In 1955 more than 200,000 children received a defective polio vaccine, (read entire article) and within days there were reports of paralysis, and within a month, the campaign was abandoned.  An investigation revealed that the vaccine had caused 40,000 cases of polio, leaving 200 children with varying degrees of paralysis, and killing 10.

Those three scandals pale in comparison to the COVID scandal that will continue to develop over future decades if thousands of front-line doctors are correct. Informed people are aware of many people dropping dead from the jab and others disabled. Most of them could have been saved with ivermectin and HCQ, and while it is too late for them, there is the hope of some recovery for the shot-takers using the two common drugs.

Ivermectin and HCQ are sold over the counter globally, especially in almost all nations in Africa and most of Central and South America. I received an email today from a friend in South Africa who told me HCQ is very cheap and “sold like candy,” while ivermectin is also available but is more expensive.

In Africa, fewer than 6% are vaccinated for COVID. For months, the WHO has described Africa as “one of the least affected regions in the world” in its weekly pandemic reports. Have any of the experts thought the reason might be because Africans have taken HCQ and ivermectin for decades for malaria and pest removal from human intestines because of contaminated water?  Why does it take a non-physician like me to suggest that generations of HCQ-ingesting Africans have protected themselves from malaria and COVID, resulting in a shockingly low infection rate?

So, it is logical that HCQ and ivermectin offer hope for the vaccinated.

Dr. Levy also recommends up to 10,000 of vitamin C per day, “ozone, ultraviolet blood irradiation, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy” to eliminate active or smoldering COVID infection and rebuild good health. I have taken large amounts of C for decades, and “experts” who speak of overdosing on C are quacks or uninformed individuals, in my humble non-medical opinion. One does not overdose on C; it is eliminated from the body through the urine and a brief bout of diarrhea. As to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, I have had numerous treatments over the years and think it is one of my wisest health decisions.

For my family members and readers who took the shot, it will not help to lament and flagellate yourself for the decision. It is time to do what can be done to protect yourself from long-term effects.

And from now on, be careful about the bells you ring and the shots you take.

Southern Border: Elegant Dinner Party While the Titanic Sinks! Tue, 21 Dec 2021 20:42:37 +0000 As I write, our southern border is chaotic, criminal, and costly. Thousands of illegal aliens walk across the border daily and vanish into our nation. Far leftists think that is a good thing and businessmen are delighted to have cheap labor.

Few national leaders are seriously concerned. They talk and talk and talk without doing anything substantial, but few even feign concern. They are like socialite fools on the sinking Titanic enjoying an elegant dinner, sipping expensive champagne as the ship’s rivets snap along the waterline and the doomed vessel lists to starboard.

As tables began to slide, a few diners looked worried but then remembered this was a ship “even God couldn’t sink.” However, it seems God didn’t read or believe their advertising.

The most elegant and largest ship sank into the icy North Atlantic and ruined the dinner party for everyone on a cold night on April 15, 1912.  More than 1500 died in the tragedy.

The tragedy at our southern border is far more tragic than the Titanic sinking and equally preventable.

Few of our gatecrashers plan to pick tomatoes or strawberries. Although a few will pick vegetables, many more will pick your pocket by crowding the public schools, overwhelming the hospitals, draining the welfare budget, filling the jails, and causing havoc on the highways.

Some obey our laws and contribute to our nation, but they are still illegal gatecrashers.

They don’t deserve to be hated or mistreated, but they should be sent home or to prison—a working prison with no television sets, gyms, or playrooms. And not a lawyer or social worker within 50 miles.

The massive invasion seems to be unending, and we are told there is nothing we can do to stop the incursion. Wait a minute. This is the nation that was carved out of the wilderness; we built huge cities with skyscrapers, major highways, hospitals, universities, and railroads that stretched from sea to sea; we went to the moon; we accomplished incredible things in the field of medicine; we endured a bloody civil war; fought two world wars and a litany of minor wars; we survived a shattering financial collapse and many minor ones. The U.S. can identify a person or location anywhere in the world and put a missile within five feet of the target. We maintain a massive army, navy, and air force, but we can’t stop a few thousand gatecrashers!

Someone doesn’t want to do so.

Future Americans will look back and be almost convinced that contemporary events were falsified since U.S. officials could not really be that stupid, incompetent, or treasonous.

But they are.

Illegal, illegitimate, and often infected gatecrashers are destroying America. Yes, I know non-thinking leftists want to call them “undocumented immigrants,” but calling an illegal alien an “undocumented immigrant” is like calling a heroin dealer an “unlicensed pharmacist.”

Leftists, even many loosey-goosey Evangelicals, believe there is a global right to live in America. That is obvious nonsense since our Constitution says America was founded “For Ourselves and our Posterity.” That leaves out everyone that is not “our posterity.” Not every Tom, Dick, and Hugo (or Mohammed) who wants to advance his financial position has a right to live here.

The lunatic idea of having nations without borders permitting anyone to freely move about inside a common boundary was promoted by President George W. Bush when he met in March of 2005 with the Mexican president and the Canadian prime minister at Waco, Texas. After that conference, the Council on Foreign Relations published “Toward a North American Community,” which called for a “seamless market” with “a more open border for the movement of goods and people.”

Such a policy has been true in the European Union for many years, whereby anyone can travel to any member nation without documentation. Such nations lose their nationhood and become a mass of land where chaos rules.

Biden doesn’t rule; chaos does.

Benjamin Franklin was shocked by the invasion of German immigrants into Pennsylvania. They did not possess the English culture or language or the same values. Franklin wrote, “why should the Palatine Moors be suffered to swarm into our settlements, and by herding together establish their languages and manners to the exclusion of ours? Why should Pennsylvania, founded by the English, become a colony of Aliens, who will shortly be so numerous as to Germanize us instead of our Anglifying them, and will never adopt our language or customs, any more than they can acquire our complexion?”

In early America, Germans, Italians, etc., were not considered white. They were “less white.”

Franklin added, “But perhaps I am partial to the Complexion of my Country, for such Kind of Partiality is natural to Mankind.”

Was Franklin a racist or white supremacist since he wrote of the complexion and limitation of immigrants? Maybe he had a legitimate fear that the massive influx of foreigners would destroy the great American experiment in freedom. He would be shocked to know that in 2018, the foreign-born population in America was about 14% of the U.S. population! It was 6% in 1980.

As I write, we are witnessing the amalgamation, even the destruction of specific groups.  Black, White, Red, and Yellow groups will disappear.  While interracial marriages are not illegal or unbiblical, it is in the interests of Globalists to make everyone the same. Does anyone care? Is it racist to care? Is it racist to even ask the question? I suppose it is racist to reveal that I prefer the 1980 percent of foreigners.

America doesn’t need any nation’s uneducated, unskilled, and unmotivated people. It is not selfish but sane and sensible to permit only those who will contribute to our nation.

The illegal alien invasion of America is producing a dangerous, dark, decaying, and dying nation; and I see no return of America’s greatness—even if there is a return to genuine Christianity.

But frankly, it may be too late to close the barn door since the horses are galloping down the road. We have been soft rather than sensible; weak rather than wise; calm rather than confrontational; and relaxed rather than resolute. When America explodes, all bets are off, and a reign of terror may ensue, and the America we know will be gone forever.

Talk show hosts have asked me if my message causes people to panic, and I always reply that I am trying to make people awake and aware without being alarmed. However, at this time in the crisis, maybe it is time to be alarmed! No, not irresponsible, out‑of‑control panic. Just the everyday kind of alarm that makes your blood run hot, your adrenaline flow, your hands sweat profusely, and your mouth as dry as an oil well I invested in.

Stop trade with nations who permit illegal aliens to pass through their territory en route to the U.S. or nations that refuse to permit their citizens to return to their own country.

Freeze the national assets in Central America until they curb the efforts of their people to flee illegally to America.

Pull up the ladder and permit no more immigration for at least five years with only a few exceptions.

Close all the holes in our northern and southern borders, even using the military, drones, helicopters, and any new technology to get the job done.

Collect huge penalties from any business that hires an illegal alien. Double the fine for a second offense. Jail for the third. That won’t make me popular with the Chamber of Commerce, but I’m not in a popularity contest.

Illegal aliens do not have the same rights that Americans have; therefore, expel all who are here illegally. As a precaution, fingerprint and photograph them and imprison them if they return.

We should fingerprint and photograph all emigrants who come to America from any nation and fine them heavily if they overstay their visas. Then, send them back “home.”

It’s time to stop playing games and stop swilling the giggle juice and realize the party is over. The ship is going down, we are ankle-deep in icy water, and it’s time to bring out the lifeboats. As the ship splits in half, most Americans tell each other that God would never permit America to sink, since we are so strong, and so supreme, and so special.

And so stupid.

Informed and Honest Blacks Don’t Celebrate Kwanzaa! Thu, 16 Dec 2021 17:13:28 +0000 Of course, honest and dishonest Blacks can celebrate Ground Hog Day if they choose; however, they should know what they are celebrating. Ronald Everett, the founder of Kwanzaa, has conned academia, the media, a small segment of Americans, and a substantial number of Blacks. Ron was born in Parsonsburg, Maryland, the fourteenth child in the family. His father was a tenant farmer and Baptist minister.  Everett moved to Los Angeles in 1959, joining his older brother, who was a teacher there.

During this period, he took the name Karenga (Swahili for keeper of tradition) and the title Maulana (Swahili-Arabic for master teacher).  It seems humility is not one of the principles of Kwanzaa’s founder.

Following the Watts Riots in 1965, Karenga (Ron Everett) organized US or United Slaves that meant “US black people,” and he credited Malcolm X’s Afro-American Unity program as a big influence for his group’s group existence. Their silly motto is “Anywhere we are, Us is.”

During the early years of Kwanzaa, Karenga said that it was meant to be an “oppositional alternative” to Christmas (gift-giving) and Judaism (using a seven-branch candle-holder that evokes Judaism’s menorah); however, as it became more popular, it has morphed into a special day for Blacks–non-thinking Blacks. The holiday begins Dec. 26 until Jan. 1, and the celebrations often include songs and dances, storytelling, poetry reading, and a large meal. On each of the seven nights, the family gathers, and a child lights one of the candles on a candle holder, followed by a discussion of one of the seven principles.

At first blush, this may seem to be a useful tool in strengthening black families, but it is a racist, bigoted, make-believe holiday founded by a deranged white hater. In his 30-page booklet, The Quotable Karenga, Karenga wrote, “The sevenfold path of blackness is think black, talk black, act black, create black, buy black, vote black, and live black.”  Wonder what would happen if I suggested the same thing but changed the word black to white?

Karenga admitted in a Washington Post interview in 1978, “People think it’s African, but it’s not. I came up with Kwanzaa because black people in this country wouldn’t celebrate it if they knew it was American. Also, I put it around Christmas because I know that’s when a lot of bloods would be partying.”  Bloods is a 1960’s California slang term for black people but is now a gang term.

As racial disturbances spread across the country in the late 1960s, Karenga appeared at a series of black power conferences, joining other groups in urging the establishment of a separate political structure for Blacks. His United Slaves became a target of the FBI and was put on a series of lists describing it as dangerous, revolutionary, and committed to armed struggle in the Black Power Movement.

United Slaves engaged in violent competition with the Black Panther Party in their claim to be the voice of the black revolutionary movement. This conflict for leadership with Blacks eventually led to a shootout at UCLA in 1969. During that confrontation, two Panthers were killed, and a member of their youth group (Simba, meaning young lions) was shot in the back. Two more Panthers were murdered after the UCLA shootout when Panthers and US members came in conflict with each other.

Interestingly, Karenga lists his many awards in his official biography (where none of his criminal activities are mentioned), but he does mention an Outstanding Humanitarian Award; however, I doubt that the two women who were stripped naked and had a hot soldering iron used on them would agree that he qualified as “humanitarian.” But that’s another article.

In 1975, Karenga dropped his cultural nationalist views and converted to Marxism.

People in academia, the media, and the general public developed selective amnesia, and the convicted felon became a celebrated Black leader.

To further substantiate Karenga’s radical racial agenda, he delivered a eulogy at the 2001 funeral service of New Black Panther Party leader Khalid Abdul Muhammad, praising him for his organizing activities and commitment to black empowerment. In 1993 Khalid gave a speech at Kean College in Union Township, New Jersey, in which Muhammad referred to Jews as bloodsuckers; labeled the Pope a “no-good cracker,” and advocated the murder of any and all white South Africans who would not leave the nation after a warning period of 24 hours. Such is the dude that Karenga eulogized, but then they were “cut out of the same cloth.”

Ron Everett, aka Maulana Karenga, is a Black bigot, hater of Whites, and convicted felon. Along the way, he managed to flimflam enough people to garner some unmerited respectability. However, he is of the same ilk as Louis Farrakhan, and I don’t like haters, whatever their color or race, or religion.

None of my informed black friends will be celebrating Kwanzaa.

Vigilantes—Do Men Have a Right to Take the Law into Their Own Hands? Sat, 11 Dec 2021 19:35:00 +0000  

God created mankind with an urgent compulsion to defend himself from all threats to his life, which is only sensible if His creation was to survive.  That means mankind must have food, water, and shelter. One must add money (or some substitute) to the list since money is required to survive. (Sex is probably the second strongest urge of man, but that’s another article.)

Societies’ laws must reflect the fact of man’s basic urges. That is why it is not wrong to kill in defense of one’s own life or the life of others, especially family. When taking a wife, a man is obligated to be the protector as well as partner, parent, and provider. That’s one reason why every man should own a gun and know how to use it and be willing to use it if necessary.

This truth goes back to ancient Jewish law that gives a homeowner the right, even the duty, to kill a person during a night home invasion since he can expect the most dangerous intent. At night, a homeowner has limited knowledge of the threat to the family, while he can make a fair assessment of the threat in the daylight. However, if it is the daytime, a homeowner must try not to kill an intruder.

Moses instructed in Exodus 22:2-3, “If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him. If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.”

So, a homeowner can kill any night intruder since he does not know how dangerous the thief is. For sure, he is in the home for nefarious reasons, so he can be shot, and the shooter goes free. The thief got what he deserved. If he were not in another’s home, he would be alive. He did not exercise common sense and paid with his life.

Unbelievers and nonthinkers always quote Christ’s command about turning the other cheek. That seems to be their favorite verse after, “Judge not.” It’s one thing to turn your other cheek to de-escalate a situation but another when a brute is swinging a ball bat at the head of your wife or child.

Many laws come from this principle: stand your ground, citizens’ arrest, involuntary manslaughter, etc. This principle has numerous ramifications, such as vigilante committees, bounty hunters, posses, Guardian Angels, paladins, Robin Hood, Superman, etc.

The need for law and order is seen in a ship’s captain since sailors were often on the sea for months or years at a time. In the event of any problem, the captain’s word was law.

In recent years self-defense has been much in the news, especially with the Kyle Rittenhouse and the Ahmaud Arbery cases. People or groups that don’t care for or believe in self-defense or personal accountability have often used the word vigilante, especially if a minority person is the culprit. According to Merriam-Webster, a vigilante is “a self-appointed doer of justice.” The true vigilante was a rough, sometimes crude, but fair-minded man who stood ready in the night to visit violence and judgment on those who would do harm to the young, helpless, and innocent.

It seems most far-leftists believe minorities can do no wrong, and if perchance they should, it was Whitey’s fault. It is racist to hold a minority to the same standard Whites are held to! Wait a minute, isn’t that racism? All sane and honest people would agree.

However, vigilantes go back to ancient times. The first recorded case seems to be when Abraham’s nephew Lot and his family and their food supply were taken by rogue kings. Abraham and his trained militia of 318 servants chased the thieves almost to the city limits of Damascus, Syria. Lot and his family and all their goods were recovered.

During the 12th century, the Knights Templars protected travelers to the holy land. It was a Catholic military order founded in 1118, headquartered on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It became a wealthy, powerful Catholic order famous for its financial acumen, military prowess, and protection of pilgrims. After Muslims lost control of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, many Europeans were determined to visit the Holy Land but traveled through Muslim-controlled parts of Europe. The Knights Templars provided them safe travel.

There were great swaths of territory in America’s earliest days without any kind of law and order. Each family was on its own. That’s why every family had a musket over their fireplace or in the corner. People had to keep the peace whenever men gathered to start a community. When one man or group of men took advantage of others, the good guys often formed a vigilante committee to handle the bad guys until an official could be hired for that purpose.

Settlers from eastern cities in the late 1800s needed protection. One of the essential needs was law and order on wagon trains during their long trek from St. Louis westward through vast territories of dangerous savages and organized evil men. Wagonmasters had enormous authority since there was no established law for vast stretches of land. As travelers settled in areas along the way, they created vigilante committees since there was no authority for hundreds of miles. Additionally, many private groups such as bounty hunters, private guards, Indian scouts filled the gap until the law came to the towns and cavalry forts were built.

Historian Carl Coke Rister declared, “[T]he vigilantes unquestionably served the frontier well in ridding it of desperado control. They bridged the gap between the lawless frontier and the orderly communities, which came later.”

The vigilantes consisted of noble good guys, ne’er-do-wells, misfits, average individuals, etc.; and through it all, much good, as well as some harm, was done.  

One vigilante was Doc Holliday, made famous in movies and television. During an interview in The Daily Denver Times, June 15, 1886, Holliday said, “The claim that I make is that a few of us pioneers are entitled to credit for what we have done. We have been forerunners of government. As soon as law and order [were] established anywhere, we never had any trouble. If it hadn’t been for me and men like me, there never would have been any government in some of these towns. When I have done any shooting, it has always been with this in mind.”

Well, not always. Holliday was joined at the hip with Wyatt Earp. The latter was a saloonkeeper, gambler, horse thief, consorter with prostitutes, gunslinger, confidence man, and town marshal in Dodge City, Deadwood, and Tombstone.

Credit goes to the likes of Holliday, but he and his girlfriend, Big Nose Kate, were not exemplary citizens or role models for the youth of Tombstone. With the total absence of law, such people were necessary until a town or territory “grew up.”

Some villages eventually hired a sheriff, but that was later in their development. Many of the sheriffs were former gunmen with an unsavory reputation. The Pinkerton Detective Agency and Wells Fargo special agents were helpful to the cities and cattle companies in ferreting out crime inside the towns.

The bounty hunter found a necessary niche for himself until cities and counties were more settled, and like many sheriffs, he was often a reformed gunslinger. The same was true with the western paladin who was alleged to be “a leading champion and defender of a cause.”

In the mining camps in Alaska, California, and Nevada, the miners were the law since civilization was many days away.

In May of 1863, Henry Plummer was elected sheriff of Bannack City, Montana, a thriving gold area. Plummer was born in Maine and came west to make his fortune in the goldfields. With his unique position as an elected official, he is said to have organized a notorious outlaw gang known as the Innocents, more commonly known today as the Plummer Gang. The 100-member gang was headquartered at the Rattlesnake Ranch located twelve miles from Virginia City.

The Plummer Gang was blamed for the deaths of over a hundred people and the theft of a huge amount of gold from transporters between Bannack and Virginia City. The crime rate in 1863 was more than double that in the region, and citizens formed a vigilante committee to help curtail the crime.

In December 1863, the vigilantes arrested three men in Nevada City, near Virginia City. The men were suspected of being members of the gang, and one was hanged, and the other two were banished. More than a hundred men were arrested as being gang members, and most were hanged, and the others were run out of town.

At an execution, one gang member identified Sheriff Plummer as the gang leader, followed by his arrest and execution along with two deputies in January of 1864. Plummer had constructed the gallows as sheriff of the town.

Historians are divided on Plummer’s guilt. Some say he was not an outlaw, but a dedicated public official rushed to the gallows by irresponsible men. On May 7, 1993, a posthumous trial was held in Virginia City to settle the doubt. The jury split six to six, and a mistrial was declared. Henry Plummer would have gone free if the trial had been held in real-time.

True vigilantes always enforced the law but never for profit; they never wore masks and were not secretive. If the bad guys were caught killing, stealing cattle, etc., they were hanged on the spot, although sometimes they had a trial of sorts with the jury sitting in their saddles. No doubt there were mistakes, but that was the price to pay for law and order where people could walk in the parks and on the streets in safety. You know, the safety we have today in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, Baltimore, Seattle, Portland, Washington, DC, and New York City.

In 1981, Ken Rex McElroy was the town bully that none dared to confront in rural Skidmore, Missouri (population 284). He had been accused of assault, child molestation, statutory rape, arson, animal cruelty, hog and cattle rustling, and burglary.  He had been indicted 21 times but always escaped justice using witness intimidation.  Finally, a resident fatally shot McElroy in broad daylight after years of crimes without any punishment. Forty-five people witnessed the shooting, but everybody kept quiet when it came time to identify the shooter.  The case is still open.

Like anything else, vigilantes can be misused, and innocent people are hurt or killed. Some uninformed people identify the KKK (formed by frustrated Democrats at the end of the Civil War) as an example of vigilantes gone wrong, but they don’t qualify. Vigilantes did not wear masks or belong to a secret society. According to Tuskegee University, using the Klan as a cover, angry bigots lynched 4,743 Blacks between 1882 and 1968 in the United States.

Some confuse a vigilante committee with a militia, but the militias maintain order like the National Guard. Vigilante committees were focused on criminal activity in the absence of official authority.

With all the violence, looting, and killing in American cities, fearful, angry, and disgusted citizens will feel forced to “take the law into their own hands” as local and federal officials refuse to provide law and order, often excusing the violence.

That has happened since the beginning of time. Count on it happening in America.

A Shocking Christmas Story Unknown by the World! Sun, 05 Dec 2021 21:48:32 +0000  

A world-famous father that everyone seemed to love and respect was a violent, mean, raging man who often mistreated his son, especially during Christmas, but that almost unbelievable truth would not be revealed for decades after it could have made a difference.

Christmas is celebrated worldwide, and for that, I am pleased even if the boozing, wild spending, partying, and general excesses usually accompany the season. It should also be an opportunity for parents to teach their children basic principles they need for adulthood. How to live does not come automatically, and it must be taught.

What a story to tell everyone: Christ was born to a virgin as angels celebrated His lowly birth. Wise men traveled hundreds of miles to worship him with many expensive gifts. King Herod the Great killed all males under two years old in Bethlehem and its coasts. There is a hurried trip by the young family to Egypt to escape a bloody king’s paranoia.

Who needs toys, trees, and tinsel with a story like that?

Santa is a fun thing to children; however, most parents make a tragic mistake by letting them think he is real. Maybe they don’t lie, but they go along with that untruth. That is a lie (even if you insist it is a white lie—no such thing), and no child should be told a lie. No parent should undercut their rightful authority by confusing children for “a little harmless fun.” The gifts came from parents and others, not from Santa.

It is not harmless.

Have your trees, toys, and tinsel but inform children that they are honoring the most incredible event in world history: God became man to provide personal salvation to anyone who merely trusts Him in simple faith.  Additionally: children should be taught the qualities needed for a successful life.

I am saying Christmas should promote character. One should learn early to be a giver; to stand against tyrants; to serve others; to be humble. All of that is not natural and must be taught.

We know Christ came to provide life, but He also promised abundant life. Children need to be taught that Christ is the pattern for them. Children don’t absorb truth as a sponge absorbs water, instead, they must be taught. Even church people make the mistake of thinking it is enough to tell children the truth and expect that to settle the fact for all time. It doesn’t happen that way. Most parents major in talking, failing to follow up with teaching and training. That seldom happens and our schools and streets are overrun with thugs, made that way by uninformed, or unconcerned, or unmotivated parents.

No child has to be taught to lie, be selfish, or be unkind. With time, usually very early, each child will prove that truth since they are born with a sinful nature, a reality that makes humanists go ballistic. “How dare you suggest my innocent little children have a sinful nature.” Well, they do. That’s why Christ told Nicodemus he needed to be born again: that his first birth was not enough, and he must have a new nature through the new birth.

That’s why we have Christmas.

Since the last few generations have failed in rearing principled children, we have people in positions of power without principle. Political lying is not only accepted, it is expected. University professors, with missionary zeal, peddle ridiculous lies to our youth.

Attractive women, who are blessed with beauty and unblessed with brains, deem it appropriate to expose their bodies for the whole world to ogle. They usually decorate their body with a silver cross, whatever that means. Young adults think someone or some group or the government owes them whatever they want. They think they deserve it since they are poor, oppressed, hated, and ridiculed, doing outrageous things without accountability.

It is too late absent a radical born-again experience for those pathetic people who were failed by their parents. They were not taught biblical characteristics of always being honest, punctual, kind, generous, obedient, honorable, charitable, hard-working, dependable, respectable, and forgiving.

I saw many children in Christian homes without character during my early years because their parents had failed to teach and practice principled living. They taught the Bible but did not apply it to their lives. I determined that I would not be so dedicated to the ministry that I failed my own children. When my wife was pregnant with our son, to be followed by three beautiful blonds, I wrote the principles we would follow in making them normal, gracious, adult Christians. She was faithful in implementing those rules to her credit while I spent much of my time traveling as an evangelist and Christian apologist.

I don’t need to admit that my brood is not perfect, far from it. After all, half their genes are mine.

I am delighted with how our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren have developed. Of course, everyone reading this is saying, “Yes, but wait until they are grown.” Well, my children had enough commitment to train their children, and I think those children are training their children to be an honor to our family, Christianity, and America.

Sending children to a Christian school is not enough since teachers must be concerned with academics: science, history, geography, English, spelling, math, biology, etc. The successful school will implement Christian character into each subject, but that is not enough. Parents must talk, teach, and train their children, which requires work—consistent, persistent work. Most parents are too lazy or selfish, resulting in today’s America—bedlam, which means “a scene of uproar and confusion.”

Using the Bible, parents should train their children in biblical truth. Additional character-building materials are also available. The best help I have seen is a series written by Dr. Ed Dunlop. I was surprised to discover I deeply enjoyed reading the series a few years ago and have since recommended that series to thousands of people, schools, and home schools. It is called The Terrestria Chronicles, a medieval allegory series available at . The students don’t notice the abundance of character-building taking place because they are so engrossed in the story.

Be proactive now if your children are disobedient, slothful, angry, unmotivated, or even harm other children or pets. Almost all mass killers have had a history of mistreatment of animals and children. Children should be taught to not even break or destroy a toy.

The above books would be a very beneficial Christmas gift to a child. It could pay big time.

Lindsay was a handsome boy who was given whatever he wanted except love, acceptance, and training. His world-famous father often screamed obscenities at him and beat him at times. He was especially brutal during the Christmas season. He was given extra chores to do during that time, but it never seemed to satisfy his stern father. The whippings often drew blood.

He had three older brothers, but Lindsay incurred most of his father’s rage.

The public would have been shocked if the famous father’s actions had become public. That didn’t happen until many years later, and even today, few know the details.

A friend of Lindsay’s said, “Lindsay was never able to find happiness. He became a hard-drinking rounder who went from woman to woman and couldn’t find peace or success.” Because of his famous father, Lindsay was cast in a few movies that failed, as did his other endeavors, including his three marriages.

Having a famous father, Lindsay and his three older brothers formed a singing quartet and experienced a short period of success on major television shows, but he was always compared to his father. When Lindsay had a nervous breakdown, the quartet broke up.

Another failure.

After a lifetime of failure and being forced to live in the shadow of his famous and brutal father, Lindsay made a tragic decision. It was just before Christmas on December 11, that he watched Bing Crosby’s White Christmas movie in his apartment one last time. He then put a gun to his head and put a bullet in his brain.

Tragically, Lindsay’s brother Dennis killed himself with a shotgun two years later. Shockingly, their dad was Bing Crosby, the world-famous singer and movie star. However, some family members disagree with that extreme characterization of Bing.

Lindsay wrote, “I hated Christmas because of Pop, and I always will,” and continued, “It brings back the pain and fear I suffered as a child. And if I ever do myself in, it will be at Christmastime. That will show the world what I think of Bing Crosby’s White Christmas.”

Christ’s birth is the most extraordinary story ever told, but apparently, Lindsay never knew the true story of Christmas. The death of Lindsay Crosby is one of the most tragic stories ever told.

And it didn’t have to be.

Christ’s birth, death, and physical resurrection were Lindsay’s answers he and his family needed. That is because Jesus Christ makes a difference when accepted, and biblical principles are instilled in children.

The best Christmas gift you can give to your family is recognizing your sin, repenting of that sin, and receiving Christ as Savior.

Merry Christmas and a very successful New Year, the best of your life!

Incredible Corruption at NIH, CDC, and WHO That No One Talks About! Tue, 30 Nov 2021 00:35:34 +0000  

During an interview in May, Dr. Francis Collins, former Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), admitted that the NIH “has a stake” in intellectual property used in the COVID vaccine. He went on to say of the pharmaceutical companies, “nobody sees this as a way to make billions of dollars.” He added they can expect a “tiny profit, maybe one-digit percent.” Well, obviously, that has not proved true.

Collins announced his resignation just weeks after documents revealed he made “untruthful” comments about U.S. federal funding of gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). Richard Ebright of Rutgers University bluntly said that Collins had not told the truth when asked about this research: “assertions by the NIH Director, Francis Collins, and the NIAID Director, Anthony Fauci, that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement at WIV are untruthful.”

To those educated in public schools, that means Collins (and Fauci) lied and has been forced out of his position as head of the NIH, although Collins claimed it was time to step down. At least he didn’t talk about “spending more time with the family.”

Collins has publicly professed to be a “serious Christian” and sees no conflict between being a scientist and a “believer.”  But then, there is a conflict between being a Christian and a liar. Collins said he had been a Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist, and Episcopalian.

Collins was the boss of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who, like Collins, has a reputation of lying even before Congress. Fauci is known for flip-flopping with a record that shows he changes sides more often than windshield wipers.

If a court proves they lied to Congress, they should both go to prison; but the chance of that happening is like Hunter Biden admitting his “art” work is amateurish and is being used to coerce money out of access seekers—lobbyists.

Over the years, there have been numerous scandals in the CDC, NIAC, NIH, but the media manages to look out for their reputation. The media will continue to use Collins’ expertise and never introduce him as “the formerly disgraced Director of NIH.”

Former Director of the CDC, Dr. Tom Freidman, was arrested and confessed to committing a sex crime but escaped jail time. However, the media still go to Tom for his opinion and never introduce him as the “former Director of the CDC and admitted sex offender.” He was hired to a cushy job at the Council of Foreign Relations.

They take care of their own.

Some would say that was in the past and is not germane to the issue at hand. But isn’t it strange that whenever David Duke is mentioned, without exception, he is always “a former member of the KKK?” Although that was more than 40 years ago. And when he ran for Louisiana Governor, he had the support of black civil rights leader James Meredith.

While the liberal/malicious media constantly refer to Duke’s KKK association, the media never reveal that former president Harry Truman was a member of the Klan or Senator Robert Byrd was a KKK official, or that Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black was a Klan member–all Democrats! Nor do they ever mention that Nelson Mandela was a lifetime Communist agitator imprisoned for espionage and sabotage, which he admitted at his trial. Maybe some media mogul will explain that to me, but I won’t hold my breath.

Not only are straying Liberals always forgiven but their infractions are buried by the media—if the culprit was far enough to the left.

You see, the problem is hypocrisy and honesty with an abundance of the former and the absence of the latter.

The World Health Organization (WHO) Director is former Ethiopian Minister of Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) and Foreign Affairs, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Ph.D. Tedros is often seen on television pontificating on world health issues. However, it is never mentioned (full disclosure?) that he is accused in his own country “for the role he played in systematic genocidal violence and gross human right violations including but not limited to arbitrary detentions and extrajudicial execution.”

Another major bit of information that is never revealed is Tedros was “the 3rd ranking member of the politburo (governing body) of the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) Terrorist Organization.” The TPLF is an organization founded as a communist revolutionary party that came to power in 1991.

Since no one else will, I should mention that Tedros is part of the Tigray ethnic group. But then, that is no reason to support Communists, although it is an excellent reason to oppose them. Of course, there is a method to his madness since he must have China’s support for re-election as Director of WHO.  Tedros is a puppet “made in China” who can always be counted on to spout praise for the Commies behind the Bamboo Curtain; after all, puppets always say what the person whose lap they sit on wants them to say.

One of the first things Tedros did after taking the job at WHO was to nominate dictator Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe as a goodwill ambassador to the WHO. Mugabe, 93 years old, was appointed, yet Zimbabwe’s healthcare system collapsed along with the economy under his watch! Remember the Zimbabwean 100 trillion-dollar bill in 2008 when inflation reached 231,150,888.87 percent? If you missed that, you might be about to see something similar in the U.S.

You are about to become a billionaire. Your $300,000 home will be a million-dollar home in a few months.

Mugabe ordered the killings of 20,000 people in Zimbabwe during the 1980s, yet the WHO Director appointed him goodwill ambassador “because of his contributions to public health.” I don’t suppose the WHO Director tried to get the opinion of the 20,000 victims Mugabe had killed.

However, Mugabe has gone where all Communists go when their toes turn upward, but thinking people ask, “What kind of a moron appoints Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador for health?” You know WHO.

But the WHO debacle continues to accelerate.

Tedros announced on October 21, 2021, a “profound transformation” of WHO’s culture after the revelation that at least 21 WHO staff members sexually abused and exploited local citizens in the Democratic Republic of Congo from August 2018 to June 2020. Female victims told of being raped, becoming pregnant, and forced into an abortion.

Nothing new here. This has been the modus operandi for United Nations’ groups for decades. The U.S. has financially supported 15% ($400 million in 2019) of WHO’s budget until President Trump stopped it and pulled out of WHO. In one of his first acts as president, Biden rescinded former President Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the WHO and sent them a $200 million check.

More wisely, on October 28, 2021, world news reported the European Commission (EC) suspended funding for WHO programs in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) “over concerns about mismanagement of W.H.O.’s massive sexual abuse scandal.”

Obviously, the almost sacrosanct feelings American and world citizens have towards the leading health officials seems to be misplaced, mistaken, and misappropriated. These highly trained officials may act like buffoons; may talk like buffoons but don’t get the wrong idea, they are buffoons.

You and I still fund their activities.
