Obama Does Have A Foreign Policy Strategy

Read Thomas Sowell’s take on what’s really on the secular savior’s mind.

Mainstream Media Finally Are Beginning To Report The Truth About Obama

After more than six years of worshiping Obama as the world’s secular savior who can do no wrong, some liberal-progressive columnists and editorialists have begun to acknowledge the truth: Obama is an extraordinarily skilled politician who has a fatally flawed paradigm of human nature and world affairs.

Read Obama Didn’t Repair Broken Windows Of Foreign Affairs, by Richard Cohen, a columnist for the left-wing Washington Post.

Darwinians Have A Mythical Bridge To Sell You

Researchers Ran a Massive Yearlong Experiment to Get Bacteria to Evolve. Guess What Happened?

Believers in the religion of secular materialism will insist that any experiment should last at least a few million years to allow for the slow accretion of mutations that would lead to creation of a new species.  Perhaps so, but in the mean time Darwinians can’t point to any evidence of the predicted evolutionary process, other than minor variations within a single species.  Farmers and animal breeders have been familiar with such species manipulation for thousands of years.

No evidence of any kind in fossil records reveals any example of slow changes of one species into a wholly different species, let alone evolution from one genus to another.  Such evidence must be present if there truly is such a thing as Darwinian evolution in the real world.

Faith, without proof, in this nonsense besmirches science.

Liberal-Progressivism’s Contradictions

Liberal-progressivism prides itself on being scientific and ridicules as ignorant superstition the Constitution’s foundation in our Judeo-Christian heritage.  In fact, liberal-progressivism is a ramshackle collection of inconsistent hypotheses that never in human history have worked as predicted by liberal-progressivism’s self-appointed elite.

Only The Socialist Government Knows What’s Good For You

What you want is not worth consideration.  Let Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid tell you what you should want and what they intend to make you swallow.

Robert Curry brought this article to my attention:

‘To Hell With the Constitution!’

My book, The Liberal Jihad: The Hundred Year War Against The Constitution, explains what corrupted the original ethos that was the foundation of the Constitution.

Darwin, Liberal-Progressivism And World War I

Charles Darwin’s theories (The Origin of Species - 1859 and The Descent of Man - 18871) are a major foundational element in the statist, collectivistic doctrine of liberal-progressive-socialism, which produced the barbarity of the 20th century’s wars that killed tens of millions of soldiers and civilians. 

Darwin wrote that evolutionary survival of the fittest would lead the world’s superior races eventually to exterminate inferior races.  His cousin, Sir Francis Galton, borrowed Darwin’s ideas in 1883 to found eugenics, premised on the need to expedite evolution by eliminating inferior individuals in order to prevent mongrelization of the human race.

In the first decades after publication of Darwin’s ideas, they gained wide support among European and American liberal-progressives.  Karl Marx was delighted with Darwin’s evolutionary theories, which Marx hailed as supporting socialism’s ultimate triumph.  Darwin’s most influential contemporary backer in England, Thomas Huxley, declared that there was no such thing as sin; there was only the struggle for survival.  By 1886 Friedrich Nietzsche (Beyond Good and Evil), influenced by the prevailing vogue for Darwinian evolutionary theory, declared that “God is dead.”  Nietzsche’s conclusion remains the doctrine inculcated in our educational system today.

On the surface and in the popular press, the idea of progress in the late Victorian era was a reflection largely of the great strides in science and industry that were raising living standards everywhere.  But the idea of evolutionary progress had darker implications:

Obama’s Middle Eastern Strategy

Read David Goldman’s assessment.

Quote:

Obama’s “we-don’t-have-a-strategy” gaffe was so egregious as to distract attention from the fact that he does indeed have a strategy, which has blown up in his face. His strategy is accommodation with Iran at all costs.

Spiritual Representation In The Modern World

Liberal-progressives assert that God definitely is dead and that liberal-progressivism is the earthly embodiment of truth and power.

Racism, The All-Purpose Excuse

Liberal-progressive social policies have allowed too many blacks to avoid reality and to continue self-destructive cultural patterns.  Liberal-progressivism has worked assiduously to wipe out the spirit of individualism and self-reliance that was this nation’s founding ethos.
