Some goodies at YouTube

Conservatives are the true feminists.

How to raise kids who are smart about money. When my girls were young, I asked a female banker with grown kids for advice about teaching my kids about money. She told me she had never done anything, just expected them to learn it by osmosis or something. I wonder if she felt the same way about learning to read and do math. Sheesh.

How many times has CNN told us an apple was a banana?

CNN BANANA

  • CNN has repeatedly claimed that heavily regulated and difficult to obtain weapons are legal and easy to obtain.
  • One month after President Trump made an Article 5 commitment to our NATO allies, CNN said he had never done it.
  • CNN “reported” the non-fact that Republicans wanted to make rape and domestic violence pre-existing conditions in their Obamacare repeal bill. They even interviewed rape survivors so they could get their reactions to the fabrication.
  • CNN spent hours pushing a four-byline story that alleged James Comey would publicly dispute the president’s claim that the former FBI director told him on three occasions that he was not under investigation. Comey did the opposite.
  • CNN host Chris Cuomo, who has a law degree, said “Hate speech is excluded from protection” under the First Amendment. Hate speech is the REASON for the First Amendment. Nobody needs to be protected for warm cuddly speech!
  • CNN Sally Kohn and her cohosts raised their hands in the air in a nod to the “hands up, don’t shoot” slogan and CNN pushed the video out on its social media channels. Yet nothing in the Michael Brown case, not the ballistic or the DNA evidence or the witness statements, backs up the contention that Brown was shot with his hands up.

Why I’m no longer a “seamless garment” Catholic

When I was (a lot) younger, I thought the seamless garment thing was beautiful. As I grew in age, wisdom, and beauty ;o), I began to see the worm in the apple.

Seamless garment theology replaces Jesus with Left-wing Social Justice.

Jesus came to proclaim the gospel of God. He called us to repent, and believe in Him, not to vote Democrat.

Bernardin respect for life

Within Catholic social teaching, there is a thing called the “hierarchy of truths.”

  • Intrinsic evils are at the tippy top of the list.
  • Affirmative obligations are lower down.

Seamless garment theology not only flips these around, but also gives priority to addressing affirmative obligations IN THE WAY THE LEFT PRESCRIBES.

Intrinsically Evil Acts — like abortion and euthanasia — can never be performed under any circumstances. It is a serious sin to deliberately endorse or promote any of these actions.

Affirmative Obligations — like relieving poverty — seek the common good. We should look to the Church’s rich history of social teaching and ask the Holy Spirit to guide us in how we individually and collectively meet these challenges.

There’s no question that unemployment, poverty, homelessness, etc. pose serious threats to the dignity of human beings. Nevertheless, they are neither intrinsic evils nor subject to the simplistic so-called solutions the Left pushes on us.

4 Pete’s Sake… Tuesday, October 24

That sure is easier than trying to think of a clever name for a post every day.

In deference to CtH, my personal editor, I will endeavor (or endeavor, if you’re British) to shorten this a bit so it won’t take so long to load.

Kathy Griffin Slams ‘Fame-Whoring’ Lisa Bloom for Handling of Gruesome Trump Photo Shoot

MAYBE IT’S JUST ME, BUT I REALLY ENJOY IT WHEN THE LEFT EATS THEIR OWN.

Griffin stirred controversy when she participated in a June photo shoot featuring a prop bloody head resembling the president, and she subsequently brought in Bloom to deal with the fallout, which included losing her gig as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve program. Griffin found Bloom’s work dissatisfactory and accused her of “fame-whoring” in a recent interview with the Daily Beast.

The Los Angeles-based attorney most recently grabbed headlines after she represented – and days later, didn’t represent – Harvey Weinstein following the release of stories detailing numerous allegations of sexual harassment and abuse against the Hollywood film mogul.

Military judge in Bergdahl case worries about Trump impact

FUNNY… EVERY CASE OF A WHITE OFFICER SHOOTING A BLACK PERSON DURING THE OBAMA YEARS, HE BLAMED THE COP OUT OF HAND. NOBODY MINDED WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID THEN.

The judge deciding Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s punishment said Monday he is concerned that President Donald Trump’s comments about the case could impact the public’s perception of the military justice system.

Sentencing was set to begin Monday for Bergdahl on charges that he endangered comrades by walking off his post in Afghanistan in 2009. But the judge, Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance, instead heard last-minute arguments by defense attorneys that recent comments by Trump are preventing a fair proceeding. Bergdahl faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Thousands of Americans Will Scream Helplessly at the Sky on Trump’s Election Anniversary
RUSH ALWAYS SAID LIBERALS ARE DANGEROUS WHEN THEY HAVE POWER. WHEN THEY DON’T THEY’RE JUST FUNNY.

[CtH: But did you notice how, when they had a super majority, they were STILL mad at Republicans about everything?]

Thousands of concerned citizens will take part in a new ritual of sorts, commemorating the anniversary of Donald Trump’s election by screaming at the sky.

Over 4,000 Facebook users have RSVP’d—another 33,000 are interested in attending—to the Nov. 8 event being held in Boston that is quite literally titled “Scream helplessly at the sky on the anniversary of the election.”
