nuclear level of hypocrisy – Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence

For the academic, maybe this will help understand Jesus … 

Jesus Christ PhD. James Franklin — “Careful attention to how Jesus uses scripture and draws from it principles that imply radical conclusions gives insight into the nature of his intensive earlier study.” … “Our modern assumption, in law and ethics, that motive and intention are morally central and that actions flow from them, is post-Christian.”

Capitalism, Poverty and Christian Charity. Peter Smith — “Whether Catholicism or Protestantism was most responsible for spurring economic progress in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and beyond can be debated. What I believe to be true is that across all of its denominational variants, Christianity is bound together in a holy and secular alliance with capitalism. This is not universally appreciated. It should be, as I hope to explain.”

“As societies have become wealthier, and wealthier still, a disconnect has arisen in the minds of many between the vast array of commodities on show and available every day and the processes of making and delivering them. A cargo cult, almost, has taken hold. This is most acutely seen, in my view, among the Greens. However, to varying extents, this mentality is widespread. It is prevalent among charity and church leaders who otherwise display no tendency to believe in magic.

Entropy, poverty and misery are always waiting in the wings unless free markets guide the process of creating and distributing wealth.

Christians who complain about capitalism need to go back to basics. Poverty will always be with us. “For you have the poor with you always” (Matthew 26:11). Charity will always be required. Meanwhile capitalism is peerless at providing the wherewithal to support charity while progressively reducing, though never ending, the need for it. It is a match made in heaven and earth.

“Brutal” Abuse Of Power: Watch As UK Police Break Up “Unlawful Gathering” Easter Service In London. Tyler Durden — “Shocking footage has emerged showing the absurd lengths authorities are willing to go to enforce ‘Covid rules’ even after vaccines have been made more widely available, with tens of millions having received the jab” … “The police appeared to literally burst in mid-service and acknowledged it was among the most important Christian holy days of the year before ordering people to disperse.”

The Trump-Hate Coalition Is Crumbling. Conrad Black — “The wheels are coming off the rickety anti-Trump coalition in all four directions.” … “Every informed person in the world knows that the events of January 6 were the result of a loose sequence of facts that were only allowed to aggregate into the assault on the Capitol because of the malice or incompetence of Trump’s enemies.”

“The FBI and senior echelons of the intelligence services were politically compromised, a massively illegal and fraudulent investigation of the elected president was conducted, two utterly spurious impeachment attempts were thrown at him and the coronavirus pandemic was invoked to produce the most seriously tainted presidential election result in the country’s history. The Supreme Court may have made the correct political decision when it declined to adjudicate the case, given how tempestuous the response would have been if it had overturned the result of the election, but it was still an abdication. They presumably acted as they did to assure that there would be no move to pack the court with Democrats, and they may now be in a position to reassert the Constitution as the controversies generated by the new administration percolate up to it.

Republicans Seek Briefing From DOJ on Allegations of ‘Suspicious’ Capitol Tours Before Riot. Rick Moran — “Shortly after the Capitol riot, 34 Democrats signed a letter asking the Department of Justice and the Capitol Police to investigate claims that Republican members of Congress assisted the rioters by giving some of them a tour of the Capitol in the days leading up to the riot.”

“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence,” said astronomer Carl Sagan. He was referring to claims of aliens visiting earth, but he may as well have had the Democrats smearing Republicans with baseless charges of complicity in an insurrection in mind.

There is no evidence that any Republican congressman was involved in any way in the assault on the Capitol. There’s no evidence that routine tours of the Capitol given by every member of Congress were anything but wide-eyed tourists killing time on their vacation.

What’s More American than Coke and Baseball? Clarice Feldman — “Until very recently, it would have been hard to imagine anything more iconic of American life than Coca-Cola and baseball. Today both remind me of Benito Mussolini’s corporatist – aka, fascist — game of merging of state and corporate power.” … “I’m fed up with this never-ending sham: partisan power grabs to weaken the most important features of American life being cloaked in virtuous anti-racism.”

So MLB is fine with ball games in Cuba and training in China, but Georgia is the human rights problem, Monica Showalter — “Unlike Abrams, they chose, and chose poorly, because what they chose will probably have some consequences for the MLB organization, given its nuclear level of hypocrisy.” … “Their hypocrisy surrounding this maneuver to appease senile Joe Biden and all his leftist flying monkeys circling his sorry corpus is an outrage.”

The attack on Georgia isn’t really about Georgia. neo — “This is just another example of a trend we’re seeing more and more of lately, in which companies that used to stay out of politics are making bold statements that align with the present-day Democrat narrative.” … “Democrats feel that their goal of permanent power (or at least very long-term power) is so close they can taste it. And they are willing to do nearly anything to secure it.”

Atlanta Journal-Constitution Offers Correction After Printing Biden’s Lies About GA Election Law Bill. Karen Townsend — “The newspaper made the mistake of printing Democrat talking points, specifically remarks made by President Biden, instead of the truth. AJC originally falsely reported that voting hours had been cut in the bill and failed to note that early voting days had been added for general elections while shortening the time for early voting in primary run-offs.”

NPR Corrects False Hunter Biden Claim But ... Jonathan Turley — “The article by NPR senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving stated categorically that the laptop story was discredited by news organizations. It was later compelled to correct that false statement but still has language casting doubt on the story and evades glaring contradictions in Biden’s book and his interview. Moreover, NPR continues to run false claims from prior controversies.”

Election Fraud Hotspots – 10% of the Data are 70% of the Fraud. Jay Valentine — “Beginning in November, like many citizens, we witnessed election fraud possibilities any sentient person would investigate. Having backgrounds in fraud detection, particularly in the property casualty insurance business, Medicaid fraud, and cyber fraud, gave us a curiosity that never dissipated.”

“If Jesse Morgan did drive a tractor trailer truck with 100,000 ballots from New York to Pennsylvania, how can we find out? Chris Wray and our hardy pals at the FBI may not want to open that truck’s back door, but we do – with database analysis.

They can hide the truck. They can claim it never happened. They cannot hide the record of the ballot.

We are thrilled people are trying to alter data after the fact. They are leaving tracks like a dinosaur walking through a field of peanut butter for database tracking.

Some Covid Links. Don Boudreaux — “We will not mince words. America is indeed suffering from a dangerous plague—a plague of misanthropic fearmongering from the likes of Dr. Fauci, the Scarf Lady and the Biden’s new CDC director, among countless others of the self-designated Virus Patrol.”
