An MSNBC host, making fun of Michelle Bachman (talk about picking a soft target!) said G-d would say Amen to Obamacare. This spawned innumerable moronic responses, one of which quoted Jesus’ “Render unto Caesar, etc.” Here is one Evangelical’s response. It really deserves a medal for combining ignorance with self-conceit.
Ha, Ha, When Jesus said Render unto Caesar, he did not mean pay Caesar taxes.
You can’t serve two masters, specifically God and mammon.
Mammon was Caesar. Mammon is the govt. The govt killed Jesus. What the Bible fails to mention is that Caesars coin inscription said Caesar is god. That is against the First and Second commandment, so No, thats not what Jesus meant when he said Render unto Caesar. Render means “give back”, as in, give back to Caesar all his crap, and have nothing to do with it.
The people perish for lack of knowledge, but the gate is very narrow and so few find it.
Such is the “Christian Right” that is going to save us from Obama! (I don’t suppose I have to inform anyone on this website that Our Lord was, in fact, referring to Roman taxation?)
A Federal judge in Austin (Lee Yeakel–or is it yokel) has struck down provisions in Texas’ new abortion law requiring abortionists to have hospital privileges within 30 miles of their murder site. Right-to-lifers are angry, but, really, the judge has a point: Why should we care about the life and health of these latter-day Medeas who kill their babies? A more even-handed approach would permit women to have abortions only if they themselves submitted to a retroactive abortion. After all, euthanasia is the most rational response to the massive abuse of the healthcare system that Obamacare will only increase. Let us give the devils their due: Feminists are way out in front of the leftist pack in turning genocide from mere hope into grim reality.
For the whole weekend I had the (mis)fortune of attending a Continuing Legal Education course at my old law school in order to remain in good standing with the venerable New York state bar. Now, most of the speakers were older attorneys in the personal injury field.
One of them, whom I’ll call “Seymour Wilkins”, stood out from all those aged ambulance chasers. Not only did he have a gentlemanly WASP manner, but at the conclusion of his speech he mentioned that he and his late father were always big admirers of Winston Churchill. Brother Wilkins encouraged us, young and green barristers to use Churchill’s quotes in opening and closing arguments.
His favorite quote was: ”Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning”, delivered by the PM in November 1942. He also mentioned Churchill’s razor-sharp reply to Lady Astor’s “Sir, if you were my husband, I would give you poison” – “If I were your husband I would take it.”
I wonder if Wilkins and the myriad other Americans who so admire Winston Churchill are aware of his ethno-racial opinions. This is what Churchill had to say about Jewish communists, whom he called “International Jews”:
“The adherents of this sinister confederacy are mostly men reared up among the unhappy populations of countries where Jews are persecuted on account of their race. Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers, and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing.”
Churchill was even more scathing and forthright in his denunciation of the Jews’ role in the Red Terror:
“And the prominent, if not indeed the principal, part in the system of terrorism applied by the [Cheka] has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses. The same evil prominence was obtained by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled in Hungary.”
In addition, Churchill referred to Gandhi as a “seditious fakir” and called Indians “a beastly people with a beastly religion”.
Winston Churchill’s American worshippers conveniently omit the inconvenient views of their idol. One wonders whether George W. Bush would’ve put Churchill’s bust in the Oval Office if he was aware of the above quotes.
On Sunday, 522 Catholics killed for the Faith during the Spanish Civil War were beatified in Spain. So far, some 1500 Catholic martyrs killed during the Spanish Civil War have been beatified. The left is not pleased. An article in the Guardian says that the killing of Catholics during the Civil War is “highly controversial,” “controversial” being the standard way of describing something not pleasing to the left. The article also notes that, ”In perhaps the most controversial moment, Pope Francis made a televised address to the congregation, but failed to address the church’s support for Franco,” and concludes by stating that “Critics of the Catholic church argue that while it is happy to honour those killed by republicans, it has failed to address the far higher number of republicans who were murdered by Franco’s forces.”
Unmentioned in the article is the salient fact that, if it were not for Franco, the Catholic Church in Spain would have been destroyed. Indeed, the most probable outcome of Franco’s defeat would have been a Communist dictatorship in Spain. Those beatified were not combatants, or even political figures, but ordinary Catholics who were killed simply because they were Catholic. But the Guardian doesn’t want these people to be remembered, and those who dare to remember are criticized in a way that the killers never are.
While the political spotlight has been on the government shutdown, the Democrats have not forgotten that America’s political future will be shaped by the immigration bill passed by the Senate but stalled in the House. In an effort to convince House Republicans to drop their opposition to the bill, congressional Democrats gave their support to a rally for the bill held on the National Mall, and eight House Democrats were even arrested for blocking a street near the Capitol following the rally.
It is, of course, telling that the Obama Administration gave access to the Mall to the organizers of the rally, despite preventing World War II veterans from visiting the World War II Memorial. Even more telling is this statement by Rep. Luis Gutierrez, the leader of the House Democrats arrested after the rally. As VDARE’s Peter Brimelow has noted, Gutierrez disdains loyalty to America and Americans, proclaiming instead, “I have only one loyalty, and that’s to the immigrant community.” Obama and Gutierrez know that, by giving amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants and by importing millions of additional immigrants from the Third World, the immigration bill will give a dramatic, perhaps irreversible, boost to leftism in the United States. Let us hope that the Republicans in the House realize this, too.

French Minister of the Interior Manuel Valls recently drew howls of politically-correct outrage. Valls, who is according to the BBC, a rising star in Hollande’s administration, said that the sociopathic Gypsy lifestyle, based on chicanery and the avoidance of socially acceptable work, is “clearly in confrontation” with the lifestyle of the French.
In response to his critics, who snidely pointed out that Valls is himself an immigrant, born in Barcelona, the admirably steadfast Interior Minister explained:
“I’ve got nothing to correct. My remarks only shock those who don’t know the subject. The majority of Gypsies should be delivered back to the borders. We are not here to welcome these people. I’d remind you of [former Socialist premier] Michel Rocard’s statement: ‘It’s not France’s job to deal with the misery of the whole world.’”
Like Valls and my friend Peter Brimelow, I also had my immigrant background nastily pointed out to me by the politically-correct cheerleaders of the New World Order. The fact that I came here legally, was of course lost on my opponents. As Brimelow pointed out in “Alien Nation”, it was oftentimes immigrants who became outspoken opponents of mass immigration. British Jew and labor leader Samuel Gompers comes to mind.
As for the Gypsies in French, it is nearly impossible to visit major tourist attractions in Paris without being assaulted by gangs of dusky, jeans-clad Gypsy girls with clipboards, which they thrust in your face, mumbling something incoherent in a mix of French, English, Rumanian, and Roma. Tourists dumb enough to fall for this ploy start looking through the petitions attached to the clipboards and are quickly relieved of their wallets and passports. These obnoxious Gypsy bands are especially prevalent in the Jardin des Tuileries and near the Sacre Coeur cathedral in Montmartre. And while not as sinister as the Arabs and Africans, the Gypsies occasionally resort to violence. A few years ago, an American tourist and her mother were knocked to the ground and stomped on by a pack of Gypsy girls right outside the cathedral.
Just a few days ago, I heard some attorneys lamenting that we in this country, don’t have a three day weekend every week, “like they do in France”. I smirked into my Kindle, not wanting to cause a tropical downpour on the poor devils’ parade. France doesn’t have three day weekends every week, and while the French don’t live to work, like most modern Americans, they certainly don’t enjoy the idyllic, work- and worry-free existence most American liberals think they do.
The myth is symptomatic of the disordered and downright schizophrenic American liberal view of (western) Europe. On the one hand, the denizens of Manhattan’s Upper East Side and LA’s Beverly Hills profess their undying love for European cuisine, brag about visiting Paris and Rome, and try to insert phrases such as “beaucoup” and “ciao” into every day conversation. On the other hand, they lack any understanding of European history beyond such Hollywood movie/pop fiction topics as World War II and perhaps, the French Revolution.
I bet most American college graduates wouldn’t be able to cogently explain who Joan of Arc was and what war she participated in. Besides their ignorance of western European history, they react with shrieking, pale-faced outrage at any suggestion that European culture is both superior and worth preserving. As if the architecture, cuisine, and language that they so admire will survive an onslaught of Arabs and Africans for which these same liberals are clamoring. The fools want to eat their baguette and have it too.
