Progressives R Us

2013_02 28 The Nation - samples

Today’s Tweet Giggle is courtesy of Katrina vanden Heuvel (progressive editor, publisher, and part-owner of the magazine The Nation) who BRAGGED in a tweet that the “smart interns & young folks” working for her at The Nation “have no idea who Woodward is.”

  • Such grotesque ignorance about an icon of your own profession is nothing to brag on.
  • I must not be smart, I know who Bob Woodward is, but I have no idea who Katrina VandenHeuvel is.
  • Juice Box Media: Journolistas who don’t know Woodward from a hole in their pants.
  • Do the Nation’s interns know Hiss was a Soviet spy?
  • “Smart” interns: Clueless products of the liberal assembly line.

Katrina bristled: “Clarification: @thenation interns know who Woodward was but have far clearer memory of his establishment role post-Watergate.”

  • They have no idea who he is but they know all about him. Come to think of it, that’s libs to a tee.
  • Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh. It’s like, “Didn’t you used to be Bob Woodward?”

Katrina continued digging: “They’re real smart & know of political abuses galore but Woodward 2 them is establishment journalist, not Watergate muckraker.”

  • If these young people are so damn smart, why are they interning for The Nation?
  • Is this like participation awards? Does everyone get a smart certificate?

Katrina renews her vows as Obama Bridesmaid in case some “senior White House official” follows her tweets AND has her email addy: “Aren’t there bigger scandals Bob Woodward could muckrake — besides WH moving “goal posts” of a manufactured crisis?”

  • Gotta love her last tweet: ‘Nothing to see here — Move On.’
  • But she is like smawt! You folks just took her comment out of context … or something. And another thing … SQUIRREL!
  • “Clarification upon clarification” won’t change what you said. Your interns are dumber than a box of rocks.
    • But not as dumb as Katrina. She is “supposed” to be a communications expert.
  • Please, someone, hand @KatrinaNation another shovel.
    • I think she has it handled. She is currently using a backhoe.
  • I’d love to hear some of these ace interns’ guesses as to why scandals always end in “-gate.”
  • Historic event at MIT today. 8th year grad students find out who Einstein was.
  • It’s better not to tweet and let people think you’re an idiot that to open your tweet hole and remove all doubt.
  • Katrina has returned…the Nation suffers.

This is the CHANGE they always intended

2012_11 01 Jarrett promises CHANGE

As I wrote yesterday, just hours after Bob Woodward criticized President Obama on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, he received an email from a “very senior person” at the White House saying, “You’re going to regret doing this.”

Anti-Christian violence? Say what?

Radical Muslim Yusuf Ibrahim ritualistically murdered and dismembered two Coptic Christians in Buena Vista, New Jersey.

Never heard of this? Big shocker. (Not.)

Our media and their sled drivers in the Democrat Party seldom, if ever, seem to view Muslim atrocities as … you know … atrocities.

Check out this “OMG we don’t know WHY this happened!” report from ABC

RIIIIIIIIIIIGHT. A radical Muslim beheads two Coptic Egyptian Christians but we don’t know WHY?

Some whack job shoots at a Democrat and it’s INSTANTLY labeled a Right-Wing Hate Crime.

But a radical Muslim beheads … BEHEADS … two Christians and it’s all oh golleeeeeeee and head scratching.

But that’s the message from the top, isn’t it?

Muslims murder four Americans in Benghazi?

Blame a lame YouTube video nobody watched.

Ditto Black crimes. Scream slavery and Jim Crow and RAAACISM.

“If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin.”

Ibrahim didn’t just murder two Christians; he beheaded them, and cut their hands off and then buried the body parts in his back yard.

IN NEW JERSEY!

Our leaders should be publicizing and condemning his actions.

Instead, Obama’s Director of Homeland Security calls conservatives and veterans the greatest threat to American security.

And Democrats from the top down are doing their best to disarm us.

Think I’m exaggerating about the bias?

Consider if the religions of the murderer and his two victims were reversed.

As one wit put it, “You’d be able to see the media storm from the moon.”

THE SEQUESTER EVE GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Sooo,the GOP isn’t caving and now Barry has to walk back his doomsday predictions a bit.It may be wishful thinking,but it seems like the media whores are a little less eager to hide his treachery than they usually are.Maybe some of them are getting tired of being played for the fools they truly are.Woodward dared speak up yesterday(as per the video I posted) and now he’s gotten a threatening e-mail from financial hack Gene Sperling.Those of us who pay attention know this administration is run like a crime family.Woodward has long been a hero to the enemedia because he has a presidential scalp hanging from his belt.They’re making it clear nobody speaks against the Chosen One…nobody.

I heard a clip this morning  on WLS from Jim Sacia,a state representative from Pecatonica,which is about 12 miles west of where I live.Granny’s family came from that area.He goes ballistic on the Chicago Syndicate and makes a notable analogy about the convoluted plans they have come up with to comply with court-ordered concealed-carry law that they must pass.Please check it out.

This is not the kind of CHANGE I CAN BELIEVE IN!

American student punished for refusing to recite Mexican pledge

http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/american-student-punished-for-refusing-to-recite-mexican-pledge.html

The Thomas More Law Center HAS filed the suit on behalf of Texas high school student, Brenda Brinsdon, alleging the McAllen Independent School District violated the 15-year-old girl’s constitutional rights when she was forced to recite the Mexican pledge and sing the Mexican national anthem. Brinsdon, who is the daughter of a Mexican immigrant and an American father, refused. She believed it was un-American to pledge a loyalty oath to another country. Ironically, the school district has a policy that prohibits a school from compelling students to recite either the American Pledge of Allegiance or the Declaration of Independence!

White House sends ominous email to critic

http://www.businessinsider.com/bob-woodward-obama-sequester-white-house-reporting-price-politics-2013-2

Early today, Bob Woodward (of Watergate and Deep Throat fame) criticized President Obama on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” saying it was a “kind of madness” for Obama to say he wouldn’t deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of the sequester vote. budget concerns.

He asked if anyone could imagine George W. Bush or Ronald Reagan or “even Bill Clinton” saying they would not attend to our national defense because they’re pissed about some budget vote in Congress.

This evening, Woodward appeared on CNN saying that a “very senior person” at the White House contacted him after his appearance on “Morning Joe” and said he would “regret doing this.” “It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘You’re going to regret doing something that you believe in,'” Woodward said.

Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary says illegal aliens released because of budget limitations

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/apnewsbreak-homeland-security-official-quits-after-illegal-immigrants-freed-over-budget-cuts/2013/02/27/a31e5066-811d-11e2-a671-0307392de8de_story.html

ICE is required by Congress to maintain 34,000 immigration jail beds. As of last week, the agency held an average daily population of 30,733 in its jails. Nevertheless, DHS up and decided several hundred of these “underflow” criminals should be released rather than kept behind bars or shipped back where they came from.

According to the National Immigration Forum, it costs the government about $164 a day to keep an illegal immigrant facing deportation jailed. In a report on immigration detention costs last year, the advocacy group said costs for supervised release can range from about 30 cents to $14 a day.

Barack and Michelle Obama’s Christmas vacay cost taxpayers more than $4 million.

Obama’s Education Secretary lies about teacher layoffs from sequestration

Arne Duncan claimed on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that there “are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips, who are getting notices that they can’t come back this fall.” The only example he could cite was Kanawha County, West Virginia where officials say that the “transfer notices” (not pink slips) had nothing to do with sequestration or firing. They were sent, as required by law, to about 100 educators who may be moved to a different position next school year, because of a change in the way West Virginia plans to allocate funds for poor children.

The Seven Churches of Revelation, part twenty-one UPDATED

UPDATE: I added a chart of the first Fours.

If you’re new to this series, catch up @

I’ve talked about how, in the Book of Revelation, the first four of the seven Letters and the first four of the seven Seals work in parallel to describe the first 1500 years of Christian history, from the Age of the Apostles up to the Reformation. I’ve also shown how the four Seraphim, the four Horsemen and the interlude at the end of the fourth Letter suggest that these first four Letters/Seals are distinct in some way from the last three Letters/Seals.

In Scripture, seven is the number for completeness, because it is made up of four, the number for all that God created, plus three, the number for God Himself.

The first four Letters are about the four types of temporal relationships that political bodies can have with believers – tolerant, hostile, controlling and controlled.

The first four Seals are about the four types of temporal suffering God sends to chastise wayward believers – “sword, famine, wild beasts and plague” (Ezekiel 14:21).

4 Letter Seal chart

I was stumped for weeks as to what the the second three Letters/Seals had to do with each other or with anything else. Then I noticed there is another interlude between the sixth and seventh Seals that could indicate the three is comprised of a two – for a matching and/or contrasting pair – plus a one – for God. This happens elsewhere in Scripture.

For example, there were three in the Garden of Eden, the two first humans (one male and one female) and one God the Father. Similarly, there were three crucified at Golgotha, two criminals (one lost and one saved), plus one God the Son.

3 Letter Seal chart

Letters Five and Six

The first four Letters covered the ages of the church from Jesus to the Reformation, addressing the four types of relationships that can exist between political and religious institutions.

I think Letters Five and Six contrast the kind of relationships that can exist between individual believers and religious institutions.

Sardis is addressed to the insider in a church community, a person whose activities in the church give him a reputation as a good Christian. My mother always called this kind of person “a pillar of the church” (and not always in the nicest way).

Philadelphia is addressed to the outsider in a church community, a person who doesn’t fit in very well (or at all), but whose faith is true. Jesus promised to make this person into “a pillar in the temple of my God.”

[For a longer discussion of Letters Five and Six, see “The Seven Churches of Revelation, part seventeen” @ https://polination.wordpress.com/2013/01/17/the-seven-churches-of-revelation-part-seventeen/%5D

Seals Five and Six

The first four Seals also covered the ages of the church from Jesus to the Reformation, addressing human suffering via the four types of God’s Tough Love – war, hunger, disease and natural disasters.

I think Seals Five and Six continue the theme of suffering, bracketing the historical period from 1517 until the “great day of God’s wrath” (whatever that is).

Fifth Seal (Rev 6:9-11): The Beginning of the Age of Many Churches (ca 1517)

When he broke open the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slaughtered because of the witness they bore to the word of God.

They cried out in a loud voice, “How long will it be, holy and true master, before you sit in judgment and avenge our blood on the inhabitants of the earth?”

Each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to be patient a little while longer until the number was filled of their fellow servants and brothers who were going to be killed as they had been.

About 70 million Christians have been killed for their faith since Jesus walked the Earth.

  • Most of them have been since the Protestant Reformation began in 1517.
  • Sixty-five percent (about 45.5 million) were killed just in the 20th century!

Avg Christians per year killed for faith

Sixth Seal (Rev 6:12-17): The End of the Age of Many Churches (Only God knows the date or hour)

Then I watched while he broke open the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; the sun turned as black as dark sackcloth and the whole moon became like blood.

The stars in the sky fell to the earth like unripe figs shaken loose from the tree in a strong wind. Then the sky was divided like a torn scroll curling up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place.

The kings of the earth, the nobles, the military officers, the rich, the powerful, and every slave and free person hid themselves in caves and among mountain crags. They cried out to the mountains and the rocks,

“Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because the great day of their wrath has come and who can withstand it?”

All the way through the first five Letters, Jesus says he will come at some point, but as you read through the Letters, the urgency increases until He says to (6) Philadelphia, “I am coming quickly”, then to (7) Laodicea, “I stand at the door.”

It seems to me that something really dramatic has to happen between Philadelphia and Laodicea, KWIM?

This is when the interlude in the seven Seals occurs. And it’s a BIG interlude … all of chapter 7!

I need to keep working on this, so just let me close with this thought.

I’m trying really hard here to stick to the Scriptures and not impose any denominational bias on what I see in the words. I’ve read up a bit on Catholic teaching about the Rapture. [Summary: “There ain’t gonna be one.”] But I am finding evidence for it in my own Scripture studies that doesn’t include any of the interpretations or citations I’ve found anywhere else. So maybe I’m wayyyyyyy off. Or maybe not. In short … please keep that salt flowing and be assured that I am well aware of the fact that I have to answer to God Almighty for every word I post on this subject.

THE WEDNESDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Its about 48 hours until the man-made disaster called Sequester kicks in.The closer the deadline approaches,the more unhinged the left is becoming.I’m posting a pair of links today about McConnell trying to get the GOP senators cedeing complete control of the cuts over to Obama.I was shocked when I read about this capitulation until I came across another item that proves Barry doesn’t want the sole responsibility for making the cuts.That would mean he had to do something he was directly responsible for and couldn’t blame somebody else.Leadership is hard,you know?
