This is a repeat post I did a few years back.  I think they’re decent enough to repost.  I just wanted to emphasized that our celebrating Christ’s birth is only part of the story.  There’s so much more to it.  Below is just some parts.  ………

Tomorrow, many of us will celebrate the birth of Christ!  This is the first part of the fulfillment of God’s word.  There are, of course, many more examples to give which show the Fulfillment.  I thought I’d share just a few.  For those who may not be familiar, the Second fulfillment is the events celebrated for Easter.  The Third fulfillment will be His return!  Like the poor drummer boy of song(Bob Seger has a moving rendition), I’ve nothing to offer as a gift but my inadequate expressions.  So, I thought it would be better that I share God’s words instead.

God’s greatest Blessing has already been freely given!  All that is necessary to benefit from the Blessing is to receive Him!

Isaiah 7:14 (NIV) Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.

Matthew 1:21-25 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” –which means, “God with us.” 24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Psalms 72:10-11 (NIV) The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores will bring tribute to him; the kings of Sheba and Seba will present him gifts. 11 All kings will bow down to him and all nations will serve him.

Matthew 2:10-11 (NIV) When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.

Micah 5:1-2 (NIV) Marshal your troops, O city of troops, for a siege is laid against us. They will strike Israel’s ruler on the cheek with a rod. 2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

Matthew 2:1 (NIV) After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem

Psalms 2:7 (NIV) I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, “You are my Son ; today I have become your Father.

Isaiah 9:6-7 (NIV) For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.

Jeremiah 31:15 (NIV) This is what the LORD says: “A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more.”

Matthew 2:16-18 (NIV) When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. 17 Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: 18 “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”

Hosea 11:1: When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.
Matthew 2:14-15 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘Out of Egypt I called my son.’

I pray all a safe and happy Christmas season.  God bless all and merry Christmas.

The Difference Between Moore And Franken Demonstrated!!!!


Moral relativism and “whataboutism” is too prevelent today.  Of course, it’s intentional.  It usually has to do with a letter behind the name of the person. 

Today, it’s the favorite game from the people on the left to bring up Roy Moore, the Repub candidate for senator from Alabama.  It’s pretty funny considering the fellows out in Seattle, Cali, Conyers, and Franken (all from the left and plenty more).  Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty on the Repub side to be condemned, even a former Speaker of the House.  And, that’s the difference between the two people I’ve highlighted in this more recent hubbub.  There is a difference between the actions of Franken and the alleged actions of Moore, and no, it doesn’t have to do with age. 

For the people on the left, can you guess what it is?  ……………. No? …………… Give up?  …………

It’s PROOF YOU IMBECILES!!!!!!!!  Proof, evidence, something that coroborates the accusations!  Something that would cause a skeptic to believe this is something other than a political witchhunt.  Indeed, one hardcore leftist even stated that she’s not concerned about innocent men when it comes to sexual assault accusations.  Given the left’s embracing of the “rules for radicals” and their ‘end justifies the means’ MO, I’m skeptical every time an accusation such as what is being levied at Moore is brought up.  Remember, boys and girls, most often when the left accuses the right of something, it is called “projection”.

There was a time in the history of the US, we, as a people, presumed the innocence of a man (or a woman) until such a time they were demonstrated as being guilty.  Indeed, this is codeified in our judicial system.  This is the difference between the Franken saga and the Moore accusations.  With Franken, there are pictures, apologies, and more.  With Moore, there are simply accusations, oddly, supposedly buttressed by accusations of legal behavior.  He must have sexually assaulted a 14 y/o, because he once dated an 18 y/o, or some such idiocy. 

And, for those who may scream ……..  I’m not defending Roy Moore, I’m asking for actual evidence.  Don’t have any?  Then, the accusations are not to be believed.  That’s how it is suppose to work in America.

Six Years Ago, Today ……


Remember when?  I do.  Now, of course, the data has entirely changed.  Still, it is what is was, or, some such.  They lie, they continually lie, even after they’ve been caught at continually lying.  And, still, a huge amount of people believe the lies.  This is because people wish to believe lies, rather than, confronting the truth.

It is absurd.

As I look back, our delving into the world of “climate change”, was simply to look into the idiocy of today.  We will believe and hate something that purportedly happened 40 years ago, but, we won’t call out the worse things which are happening now ….. the stuff that we know now …… vs the stuff we imagine happened then.

Click on the link.  Know that I graphed the data as it was.  Try to do the same today.  I didn’t lie.  I didn’t alter any data.  Draw your own conclusions.

Breaking!!!!! Suyts Agrees With Andrea Mitchell!!!!! And, Leftards Need To Stop!!!!!

This is out of hand.  This is beyond the pale.  You idiots have to stop trying to claim victimization every second of the day!!!!!!


So, ICYMI ….. from Twitchy …..

In a now-deleted Instagram post, actress Heather Lind accused former President George H.W. Bush of sexually assaulting her from his wheelchair at an event for the show, “Turn.”

.@heatherglind you are strong and fearless. Love you, my friend. https://t.co/T5nlnh6pbD

— Kelly AuCoin (@KellyAuCoin77) October 24, 2017

According to Fox News, Bush touched her twice and told her a dirty joke:

Lind wrote on Instagram Tuesday that Bush “sexually assaulted” her. She said he touched her “from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side,” told her a “dirty joke,” and then touched her again.

Lind claimed that Barbara Bush “rolled her eyes” at Bush, “as if to say ‘not again.’”

According to the post, which has since been deleted, a nearby security guard told Lind that she “shouldn’t have stood next to him for the photo.”

I don’t know this idiot Heather Lind ……….  and, I really don’t care to.  Not only did the people caring for 41 feel compelled to issue an apology to Mzzzz Lind, they also felt compelled to issue this statement …….


Andrea Mitchell, rightly, had this to say …….

Andrea Mitchell


Mrs Bush was at his side. He is in a wheelchair with Parkinson’s syndrome. Really? Someone should be ashamed and it isn’t ’41. https://twitter.com/jonathanvswan/status/923334651321683968 …

Good for you, Andrea!!!!  I almost never agree with her, but, she’s spot on in this case.

Look, I don’t care that George was one of our presidents, I don’t care what party he belongs to ……  he’s an ailing 93 y/o with debilitating diseases.  Do you see the expression on his face in the pic?  He’s gone.  Whatever you thought of the man as he lived, he’s not there anymore.  Leave our old people alone!!!!!  You witch!!!!!

If you click on the link “had this to say” and scroll down, you can see examples of  the angry leftarded Twitter mob attacking Mitchell for “victim shaming”. 

Also, learn what real “sexual assault” is.  It doesn’t do any good for anyone to dilute the voices of people who have suffered real and true sexual assault with this bit of stupidity.  But, enough of this crap already!!!!  “Me too#” my arse!

Leftards Make Mockery Of Themselves!!!!! To Scream At The Sky Nov 8 …… Election Aniversary!!!!!!

You just can’t make this stuff up!!!!!  

Liberals Plan to ‘Scream Helplessly at the Sky’ on Election Anniversary

The rage is still strong in some Trump opponents, who plan to band together to “scream helplessly at the sky” on the one-year anniversary of the 2016 election.

Facebook events around the country invite people to gather together and let out a “primal scream over the current state of our democracy” on Nov. 8.

The idea came from Boston, where people will gather in America’s oldest park, the Boston Common, to scream. Other liberal cities like New York, Austin and Philadelphia picked up the idea.

“This administration has attacked everything about what it means to be American. Who wouldn’t feel helpless every day?” Boston organizer Johanna Schulman said. “Coming together reminds us that we are not alone, that we are part of an enormous community of activists who are motivated and angry, whose actions can make a difference.”

More than 33,000 so far have said they are interested in the Boston event, with more than 4,000 planning to go.

Meanwhile in New York City, more than 15,000 said they are interested to scream in Washington Square Park, and more than 2,000 plan to go.

New York organizer Nathan Wahl said he thinks “we’re a bunch of exasperated people who want to feel connected.”

Philadelphia organizer Philadelphia United for Progress assured that they “know we’re not helpless.”

Fans in Philadelphia are encouraged to scream in solidarity from their own backyard if they cannot attend.

If it is warm enough, I plan to be outside Nov 8, just to hear something.  Open-mouthed smile 

I wasn’t going to post about this, because, I didn’t want to discourage this behavior.  However, I’m sure they’ll contort such redicule as to us seeing this as a threat of some sort.

Unfortunately, the “primal scream at the sky” isn’t original.  Here’s the original!!!!!  Well, sort of original ….. the first one, which was better without captions, was much funnier!

Cartoon Of The Day!!!!


h/t Townhall

I like the message of the cartoonist, though, I’m sure many may attempt to argue the math.

I’m a little conflicted on the proposed tax cuts, myself, but, at the end of the day, it is always better to let people keep what they’ve earned.

As the cartoonist implies, congress spends our money in most wasteful ways.  I would like to pretend that if they had less revenue they’d be more frugal and spend in a wiser manner.  But, they won’t.  They’ll simply continue adding to our debt.  It’s gotten so bad that some of those idiots are pretending that there will never come a day when we have to pay it all back.  That day is coming sooner, rather than later.

The “White Supremist” Accusation — And, Why It Can No Longer Be Taken Seriously …… Exhibit A


I suppose no one is tired of the constant claims some make against others for being “White Supremists”.  I mean, today, it doesn’t seem to matter what you do or who you are, or what you’ve done in the past, if you happen to disagree with the dogma of the left in regards to race relations, you will be deemed a “White Supremist”, or some such idiocy, like calling a particular group a “hate group”. 

Anyone who has read the tripe which comes out of the SPLC knows this.  But, it goes well beyond the SPLC (a hate group, themselves) …….  everyone one is a hater, or more specifically, a White Supremist.  Even our president is called a WS, heck anyone associated with him is called a WS.  Even the voters for Trump are called WSs!!!!  (Forget the fact that Trump gained more Black voters than any recent Repub candidate)  It is the ultimate agrument against trying to make America great, again. 

Are there White Supremists?  Sure there are!  There’s one down in Florida giving a speech or something.  But, the fact is, the overwhelming majority of us do not personally know one, not even one.  There are also, btw, Black Supremists, Hispanic Supremists, and probably a supremist for every race, creed, or color. 

But, going back to the ridiculousness of the accusation, it doesn’t mean anything anymore if everyone is.  And, it is ridiculous.  It is now akin to calling everyone you disagree with a NAZI.  Well, not just akin, but, entirely entertwined.  If you disagree with someone, but, cannot come up with a convincing argument as to why they’re wrong, just call them a White Supremist or a NAZI ……. end of discussion, the merits of their argument are then completely and totally invalidated. 

Never mind that illegal immigration is costing the US governments (fed, state, and local) $135 billion annually, you’re a racist and a NAZI!!!!!  So, shut up about that wall!!!!  A “Values Summit?”  Well, you’re sponsored by a hate group, the Family Research Council!!!!  The SPLC says so!!!!  And, you had the NAZI/Racist speak there, so proof!!!  He said, “we don’t worship government, we worship God”.  But, because he’s been deemed a NAZI/racist, his point must be wrong. 

But, none of what I’ve stated is my “exhibit A”.  And, what has any of this have to do with the picture I’ve posted above?

The young men in the picture, I cannot identify.  The lady in the picture is Obianuju Ekeocha.  Now, Ms. Ekeocha is a lady from Africa.  She’s a devote Catholic, and fights the Western Globalists attempts of infantcide in Africa.  She’s fierce, and a fierce support of the people of Africa.  And, this is where it gets ridiculous. …….  via Twitchy …..

We’re starting to wonder if Tariq Nasheed at this point is just a professional troll on Twitter. Honestly. He doesn’t seem to garner attention unless he’s being a repugnant ass; we never see him say or do anything inspiring for his so-called movement. All we ever really see from him is crap like this:

Tariq Nasheed


Callista Gingrich is the new US ambassador to the Vatican..Someone made this comparison

Stay classy, Tariq.

Pro-life warrior and all-around badass Obianuju Ekeocha understandably took issue with his tweet and tried to appeal to him as a public personality.

Obianuju Ekeocha


The mean-spiritedness that I am seeing among American public personalities is heartbreaking. Tariq u should be more dignified than this.

Not sure Tariq knows how to be dignified.

Tariq Nasheed


Unfortunately I’m not. Someone sent it to me and I was petty enough to post it #ohwell

Trolls are gonna troll.

Obianuju Ekeocha


The person that sent you that image may not have ur platform so they decided that u should be the one to spit on her & shame her publicly.

That’s all he knows.

And of course, since Obianuju called it like it is, Tariq jumped the shark and attacked her personally:

Tariq Nasheed


Obianuju, is it true that your husband is white?


Obianuju Ekeocha


But my parents and all my brothers and sisters and cousins and aunties and uncles are Africans just like me.

Tariq Nasheed


But its true that your significant other is a white person, correct?

Notice how Tariq is trying to make her opinion mean LESS because she might be married to a white man.


Obianuju Ekeocha


I have no husband sir.

Obianuju Ekeocha


I haven’t dated since I was 21! That was many many many many years ago. And that was in Africa. https://twitter.com/tariqnasheed/status/920094763679866880 …

Mic. Effing. Drop.

It’s not just a mic drop, but, a call to sensibility to the leftards …….. sadly, it will not be heeded, else, they wouldn’t be leftards.

Look, it is impossible to have a meaningful dialogue with anyone who constantly accuses you of being a NAZI/White Supremist, or stupidhead every time you say something they disagree with.  It is exactly like trying to reason with a spoiled 5 y/o who isn’t getting their way. 

We have come to a point in time in history where a fierce warrior for Africans, an African herself, can be considered a supporter of White Supremists simply because she calls out an imbecile for his horrid behavior.  Well, if she’s a White Supremist, then, I guess, so am I.  But, then, if that’s true, then all such labels are meaningless.

A Music Project!!!!!!

I haven’t written a post on music for some time.  But, this is what is prevailing in my mind, of late.  So ……. well, I’m sharing.

Recently, a country singer named Chris Stapleton released a song called Tennessee Whiskey.  It was a cover of a song George Jones made famous.  It was written by Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove.  David Allen Coe originally sang it.

But, that’s not what really happened.

Here’s George singing ……….

Grumble!!!!  Why is this so hard?  So, there’s a bit more to my post, I’ll try to correct this stuff ……….

I love that song!

But, now here’s Chris Stapleton’s version!

Fantastic!!!!  It’s a great song ……..  but, …..  well, that’s Etta James’ song!!!!  The provenance of Etta’s song is ….. well, complicated …… here’s how Wiki put it …. Etta James wrote in her autobiography Rage To Survive that she heard the song outlined by her friend Ellington “Fugi” Jordan when she visited him in prison.[3] She then wrote the rest of the song with Jordan, but for tax reasons gave her songwriting credit to her partner at the time, Billy Foster, singer with doo-wop group The Medallions

Anyway, here’s the song …..

So, anyway …….. that’s what I’m up to.  I think I can play these songs.  I can sing them, too.  But, I’ve also got a granddaughter who has the potential to sing like Ms. Etta.  So, I’m going to try to cultivate that.  Anyway, I’m gonna get intimate with my guitar right now. …….

Tony Abbott Nails It At The GWPF!!!!!!


Okay, so, I don’t entirely agree with everything Mr. Abbott had to say, but, most of it.  His speech, (which you can read here) details things in a uniquely Australian viewpoint … sort of.  What I was very pleased about was his warnings about Western Civilization, echoing in a very similar manner of what I have tried to do in my various posts, here.  His notions that our decline in Western Civilization is tied to our decline in Christianity is also something I’ve tried to communicate. 

We’ve replaced belief in God with belief in man’s machinations.  Delingpole at Breitbart gives the highlights.

Climate change is a product of ignorance and an anti-Christian society

Only societies with high levels of cultural amnesia – that have forgotten the scriptures about man created “in the image and likeness of God” and charged with “subduing the earth and all its creatures” – could have made such a religion out of it.

The Inquisition

Beware the pronouncement, “the science is settled”. It’s the spirit of the Inquisition, the thought-police down the ages.  Almost as bad is the claim that “99 per cent of scientists believe” as if scientific truth is determined by votes rather than facts.

If science was all about “consensus” we’d still be living in caves

The modern world, after all, is not the product of a successful search for consensus. It’s what’s emerged from centuries of critical enquiry and hard clash.  Without the constant curiosity and endless questioning that has driven our scientists and engineers, and the constant striving for improvement that’s long guided our planners and policy makers, there’d be no cures for disease, no labour-saving appliances, no sanitation, no urban improvement, no votes for women, no respect for minorities; in other words, no modern world.

Greens want to make life nasty, brutish and short

That may not actually bother some green activists whose ideal is an Amish existence, only without reference to God. But it should bother anyone and everyone who wants longer, safer, more comfortable and more prosperous lives.

Consensus is not science: it’s enforced ignorance

There are laws of physics; there are objective facts; there are moral and ethical truths. But there is almost nothing important where no further enquiry is needed. What the “science is settled” brigade want is to close down investigation by equating questioning with superstition. It’s an aspect of the wider weakening of the Western mind which poses such dangers to the world’s future.

Where’s the evidence for climate catastrophe? There’s none in Australia, that’s for sure…

Contrary to the breathless assertions that climate change is behind every weather event, in Australia, the floods are not bigger, the bushfires are not worse, the droughts are not deeper or longer, and the cyclones are not more severe than they were in the 1800s. Sometimes, they do more damage but that’s because there’s more to destroy, not because their intensity has increased. More than 100 years of photography at Manly Beach in my electorate does not suggest that sea levels have risen despite frequent reports from climate alarmists that this is imminent.

…But there’s plenty of evidence that green lunacy is killing the Australian economy

Australia, for instance, has the world’s largest readily available supplies of coal, gas and uranium, yet thanks to a decade of policy based more on green ideology than common sense, we can’t be sure of keeping the lights on this summer; and, in the policy-induced shift from having the world’s lowest power prices to amongst the highest, our manufacturing industry has lost its one, big comparative economic advantage.

Renewables have more to do with virtue-signalling than with useful energy

Throughout last summer, there were further blackouts and brownouts across eastern Australia requiring hundreds of millions in repairs to the plant of energy-intensive industries. Despite this, in a display of virtue signalling, to flaunt its environmental credentials (and to boost prices for its other coal-fired plants), last March the French-government part-owned multinational, Engie, closed down the giant Hazelwood coal-fired station that had supplied a quarter of Victoria’s power.

There’s a reason renewable energy is crap and it’s so simple even lefties and greens should be able to understand it

Hydro aside, renewable energy should properly be referred to as intermittent and unreliable power. When the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine, the power doesn’t flow. Wind and solar power are like sailing ships; cheaper than powered boats, to be sure, but we’ve stopped using sail for transport because it couldn’t be trusted to turn up on time.

Because the weather is unpredictable, you never really know when renewable power is going to work. Its marginal cost is low but so is its reliability, so in the absence of industrial scale batteries, it always needs matching capacity from dependable coal, gas, hydro, or nuclear energy. This should always have been obvious.

We think we’re rational but where green policy is concerned we’re little better than the Aztecs

There’s a veneer of rational calculation to emissions reduction but underneath it’s about “doing the right thing”. Environmentalism has managed to combine a post-socialist instinct for big government with a post-Christian nostalgia for making sacrifices in a good cause. Primitive people once killed goats to appease the volcano gods. We’re more sophisticated now but are still sacrificing our industries and our living standards to the climate gods to little more effect.

Global green policy in a nutshell

I’m reminded of the story of a man randomly throwing pieces of paper from the window of a train. Eventually his companion asked him why he did it. It keeps the elephants down, he said. “But there are no elephants here”, his companion replied. “Precisely; it’s a very successful method”.

Oh and by the way, the way we’re carrying on Western Civilization is on its way out…

Just a few years ago, history was supposed to have ended in the triumph of the Western liberal order. Yet far from becoming universal, Western values are less and less accepted even in the West itself. We still more or less accept that every human being is born with innate dignity; with rights, certainly, but we’re less sure about the corresponding duties.

We still accept the golden rule of human conduct: to treat others as we would have them treat us – or to use the Gospel formula to “love your neighbour as you love yourself” – but we’re running on empty.

In Britain and Australia, scarcely 50 per cent describe themselves as Christian, down from 90 per cent a generation back. For decades, we’ve been losing our religious faith but we’re fast losing our religious knowledge too. We’re less a post-Christian society than a non-Christian, or even an anti-Christian one. It hasn’t left us less susceptible to dogma, though, because we still need things to believe in and causes to fight for; it’s just that believers can now be found for almost anything and everything.

Of course, these are things we’ve all stated, for years!  But, it is remarkable that a politician, former world leader, would make these statements.

Here’s the video ….. it’s about 40 minutes, but, worthwhile.

A final thought …….. from the speech he gave, it doesn’t sound to me like he’s going away anytime soon in the politics of Australia.
