Part of the New America, Part of the Plan

And this is not a good trend.

One in four adults reported they have a disability that impacts major life activities with the most dominant one affecting mobility, according to a report issued Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, data were studied from the 2016 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. This is the first CDC report of the percentage of adults across six disability types: mobility, cognition, hearing, vision, independent living and self-care.

“At some point in their lives, most people will either have a disability or know someone who has a one,” Dr. Coleen Boyle, director of CDC’s National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, said in a press release. “Learning more about people with disabilities in the United States can help us better understand and meet their health needs.”

And much of this, so much, is preventable. Keep popping the pills, watching the TeeVee, and eating everything in site. Will work out (no pun…) just fine.

More on my two-part method for halting terror in the West. The following would fall under the “not allowing them in HERE” part.

The U.S. Dept of Justice detained ISIS fighter Omar Ameen in Sacramento, California, yesterday (full pdf below) pending extradition back to Iraq on murder charges. Incredibly Ameen gained State Department entry into the U.S. through the refugee system.

Despite the claims of the Obama administration, Omar Ameen’s ability to enter the United States is a clear example of weaknesses within the refugee process and lies told by former administration officials about the security therein.

Yeah…

The Free War Against the Dirty Press

As promised, today’s work at TPC:

The mass, mainstream, slanted, biased, dishonest, yellow, establishment, corporate media has become the American equivalent and embodiment of Grima Wormtongue – slithering, slinking, whispering, and lying – ever misleading the just and the honest for the benefit of other masters. Some, tiring of the deception, bluntly call it what it is: fake news. This doesn’t sit well with Fake News, Inc. To wit:

Marjorie Pritchard, of the Boston Globe, made an impassioned call for editorials “denouncing what the newspaper called a ‘dirty war against the free press.’” And I, as your C.F. Floyd Feature Writer of National Affairs, hereby answer the call!

Estimates indicate that around 100 newspapers, large and small, will respond this week. Reckon TPC as number 101, kind of. Alas that I cannot denounce a war, dirty or otherwise, against the free press as such simply does not exist. Rather, consider this my part in the free war against the dirty press.

This all started with a Tweet from the President back in February. (Actually, it started years ago with the corruption of the mainstream media, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves). Tweeted Donald J. Trump: “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”

READ ALL AT TPC

I felt this dissent important enough to forward to someone. My recent email:

Hon. Donald J. Trump
The White House

August 16, 2018

Dear Mr. President:

First, thank you for all that you do for America and for our beloved freedoms.

Second, today I understand that some 350 establishment newspapers, large and small, feature editorials excoriating you and your defense of the free people. This being done under the false guise of defending the “free press.” Some are even making claims about the First Amendment, apparently having lately discovered the Constitution. In doing so they prove they are not only the enemies of the people but organized and coordinated enemies. They prove they can offer nothing except Fake News.

Consider my column at The Piedmont Chronicles, http://www.thepiedmontchronicles.com/2018/08/perrin-lovett-one-of-many-free-war.html, editorial No. 351 (or 101 per original estimates). It is markedly different than the others.

Some of us – MOST of us – stand with you and your mission. While cheering your election I did maintain some differences with you here and there concerning policy. And I still do. However, my understanding (and appreciation) is now clearer as to the total scope of your work. In short: MAGA!

Thank you again for all that you do. May God bless you each day and may God bless America.

Sincerely,

Perrin Lovett
C.F. Floyd Writer for National Affairs, TPC

Perhaps a press club invite shall come forth?

It’s National “The Media Doesn’t Get It” Day

The call went out from the Boston Globe. 350 newspapers and outlets across the fruity plain have answered.

Nearly 350 news organizations are set to publish editorials on Thursday pushing back against Donald Trump’s attacks on the media and defending freedom of the press.

The publications are participating in a push organized by the Boston Globe to run coordinated editorials denouncing what the paper called a “dirty war against the free press”.

As of Wednesday morning, 343 publications had pledged to participate, said Marjorie Pritchard, the Globe’s deputy managing editor overseeing the opinion page.

The Guardian has also joined the effort and has published an editorial alongside outlets around the United States.

I’ve only read part of one (and they all promise to be different). The one I looked at was from the Chicago Tribune – written by a dog

“I do not usually pay attention to human politics,” Zoe wrote by “dictating” to Huppke. “I prefer more pleasant things like sniffing my friends’ butts or rolling on a dead bird in the backyard or eating things that will make me throw up.”

Zoe adds that Trump is “not being a good boy” by using “dog” to attack political opponents, and that it makes her “want to growl” at him.

“I think you are calling people dogs because you think that makes them less than human,” she writes. “My human says that’s something that ‘fascists’ do. I don’t know what that means, but it makes me think you are not being a good boy.”
The letter asked Trump to stop referring to humans as dogs and to “start realizing that humans and dogs are both great and deserve respect and lots and lots of Milk-Bones.”

And Fido there probably presents the best the mainstream media can offer. “Fascists” sounds like “racists” and “Nazis.” They literally cannot come up with anything new. And can you imagine the fallout if Trump offered Omarosa a Milk-Bone!?

They, all of them, miss the point. I set the record straight in today’s TPC column, which I assume is coming along any hour now… More then. I’ll run that here, then. And I’ll be liking the main post on Facebook (about all I do there). And I’m forwarding my piece to the White House.

On the Facebook front, if you’re still there, you’re there at your own risk. Do you even know what Zuck knows about you? You can find out. And, if you’re with the press, FB has issued you an ultimatum: join or die. I wonder if they’ll at least offer Milk-Bones…

Pure Evil in the Church

Tags

, , , , ,

The following is one of the most disturbing things I’ve read in a long time (a long time of reading disturbing things).

A Pennsylvania Grad Jury released a nearly 900-page report documenting hundreds of homo-pedo priests in the State’s Catholic churches.

The 884-page document, two years in the making, shines a light into the dark corners of these dioceses going back seven decades, exposing the predators and the efforts of their bishops to protect them.

“Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can all begin to understand the systematic cover up by church leaders that followed. The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”

Several clergy abuse victims who had testified before the grand jury attended Shapiro’s news conference. At least one of them could be seen breaking down in tears.

The report begins with the following statement:

“We, the members of this grand jury, need you to hear this. We know some of you have head some of it before. There have been other reports about child sex abuse within the Catholic Church. But never on this scale. For many of us, those earlier stories happened someplace else, someplace away. Now we know the truth: it happened everywhere.

It truly happened in every corner of PA (and you know it’s not limited to one state). There’s a pattern running through all the disgusting cases. Abuse, cover-up. Abuse, cover-up. Constant shielding from civil justice. Slow, very slow administration of Canon justice – which, as codified, makes all of these offenses, at once, deposable. Instead of immediate action, the hierarchy took years, decades to do anything meaningful. Hush money was paid as abusers were shuffled across the country. The Faithful are literally held hostage and forced to pay for the abuse. Life after life ruined.

It’s beyond systemic corruption. This is pure Satanic evil run amuck.

THE REPORT

[1,356 pages, PDF] [These accounts are long, exhausting, and VILE. Be forewarned.]

Problem: Evil. Answer: Purge.

Action is now demanded. Necessary reforms include: driving the Satanists, the sodomites, the pederasty leeches, and the globo-communists from all ranks of the Church (into the sea would work); rescind Vatican II (and Vat. I, most likely); institute a strong and vigilant watch to ensure the evil is held at bay.

Barring a substantial overhaul, traditional Catholics are left with three choices: 1) continue to suffer; 2) withhold money and support, in protest, until reform comes, or; 3) leave (one notes Orthodox Churches do not seem similarly afflicted).

Protestant friends: please pray for us, and consider your own inquests.

Assualt auto ban needed, again, in London. “Very sinister,” indeed.

This is what we know so far…

A car crashed into anti-terror barriers outside the Houses of Parliament at 7.40am

Three people have been hurt – but cops say none have life-threatening injuries

Witnesses saw a silver car “deliberately” travelling towards Westminster at 50mph

A man, in his 20s, has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences

Extra cops will now be stationed at key transport hubs across the country

Theresa May has praised medics and police for their quick response to the “attack”

And, what else do we know? Yep, as ALWAYS, the perpetrator will already be known to the authorities.

It’s much the same in Sweden, as the fires die down.

And tonight is one of the worst night for violence in recent history as police report multiple gangs of masked youths rampaging across three major Swedish cities, setting cars on fire in what seems like a coordinated action.

Probably just “women and children” “fleeing war” or some such. Certainly not a violent invasion.

More, sadly, to come.

Just Buttons and Levers: Noticing Something

Tags

, , , , , ,

Something from the recent news caught my wayward eye.

You’ve no doubt heard about the tragically deranged man in Seattle who managed to steal the Q400 and do loops, with a fighter escort, before ending it all on a remote island.

In one news story I saw something suspicious: “Once the cockpit is entered, no keys are required to start the aircraft. Instead, a series of switches and levers must be pulled in a particular sequence to unlock the controls.”

“Switches and levers” sounds a lot like this from another recently attempted ariel joyride: “An affidavit says Scott told Texarkana police, who responded to reports of a man seen jumping an airport fence, that he didn’t think there was much more to flying than pushing buttons and pulling levers.”

I’m not a licensed pilot but I have taken flight lessons and I have flown small planes before. Believe it or not, this sequence of buttons and levers really is all it takes to fly – a very complicated sequence, one requiring constant attention and application of skill. It’s a level of skill completely beyond most people. The average American can barely drive a car. A plane is outside the question.

That’s why the dope in TX had no chance of getting his aircraft off the ground. And, it makes the guy in Seattle’s performance all the more amazing.

What I’m saying is that this should be a non-issue. But something warns me it’s on someone’s radar. The WSJ warns of “cracks in airport security.” I feel or sense the opportunity of more needless government intrusion. Perhaps this is something for the general aviators among you to keep an eye on. One more chance to stamp out freedom? Or a crazy coincidence?

Hmm.

This Thing Called Inflation

Tags

, , ,

When you make more but have less to spend because of the increasing cost of living.

The cost of living in the U.S. is rising at its fastest rate in 10 years, according to new data from the Labor Department.

The data, released Friday, revealed that consumer prices increased 2.9 percent in July from the year before, meaning Americans may be earning less than they did at this time last year.

The consumer price index, meanwhile, rose 0.2 percent last month, which analysts largely attributed to rising housing costs, CNBC reported. Annual inflation remained unchanged from June’s pace at 2.9 percent.

If only there was some private consortium of bankers we could pin this phenomenon on, excluding food and gas, of course – no one needs those…

The U.S. central bank has raised rates twice this year, in March and June, and financial markets overwhelmingly expect a hike at the next policy meeting in September.

The Fed currently forecasts a total of four rate rises in 2018, with investors expecting a final nudge upwards of the year in the benchmark overnight lending rate in December.

Ah, well, they know best.

“Significant Religious Change”

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

The State (Columbia) does a great job looking into the predictable decline of the Church in South Carolina, the South, and the West:

FAITH BY NUMBERS

The South is slowly catching up to national and European trends shifting toward what many call a “post-Christian” culture — that is, a society with characteristics no longer dominantly rooted in Christianity.

Studies and surveys have documented the decline of self-identified Christians and the rise of “nones,” or the religiously unaffiliated, across the United States for years.

The Pew Research Center describes the United States as in the midst of “significant religious change. ”The share of Americans who identify with Christianity is declining, while those who say they have no religion is growing rapidly.

This isn’t new but it is still a little surprising in the Bible Belt. The Southern Baptist numbers are interesting, if alarming: adding 11 churches while shedding 78,516 members… This partially illustrates one of the problems with Protestantism: when does the schism stop? At this rate, in a few years, SC might only have 50,000 Southern Baptists, each attending his own, individual church…

This is the result of decades of decline, confusion, and degeneracy in society generally and in the parishes. In a time and place where literally anything goes (unless it makes sense), people look for refuge from the Church. Increasingly what they find is more anything goes, worldly conformity, postmodernism, tattoos, taboos, rock n’ roll services, Churchianty, cotton candy theology, and, in many cases, outright evil. It’s not a recipe for success.

The State is correct; it is starting to look like Post Christian America. This is change we don’t need.

We are assured long-term survival though it may be a little painful.
