Video Podcast – California Cops Run Out of Juice – Taking the Ham out of Hamburger

by: Brent Smith

Segment One:
If you’re a police department, what is more important – catching bad guys, or fighting the apocalyptic scourge of global warming?

Well, if you’re in Fremont California, global warming appears to be more important than public safety.

A Fremont California police officer was recently forced to abandon a chase after the officer’s all-electric Tesla patrol vehicle runs low on battery. I’m sure the criminal was happy about that.

Segment Two:
Burger King in South Africa is dropping the name Hamburger from its menu because the word “Ham” might offend Muslims. The fact that there is no ham in a hamburger is evidently lost on the South African Muslims.

Yet at the same, they are adding bacon to the menu.

I wonder if they realize the irony? read more

Video Podcast – Climate is Our New Religion

by: Brent Smith

I don’t know how the green weenies are going to top what’s happened in the last few days. I’m talking about this “Climate Strike” thing.

Setting this little girl up as some sort of beacon of light for us all to follow, because she crossed the Atlantic in a solar powered boat. I’m talking of course about Greta Thunberg.

But this is what leftists do – indoctrinate early. Get the youth before they have a chance to learn the truth.

So they’ve set up stopping the climate from changing as a religious quest. It has nothing to do with science, because any scientist worth his or her salt knows that humans cannot stop the climate from changing.

I discuss all of this and quote German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche’s, “The Parable of the Madman,” as it pertains to today’s religion of Climate Change. read more

Ted Cruz Schools Alyssa Milano on Self-Defense

Still Love me some Ted Cruz!

from the Daily Caller:

Alyssa Milano Asks Where The Bible Says Gun Ownership Is A ‘God-Given Right’ — Ted Cruz Shows Her

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz gave actress and political activist Alyssa Milano a quick Bible study and lesson in self-defense Monday.

After Milano asked where the Bible justifies gun ownership, Cruz provided a direct response from the Scriptures while also reaching to the United States Constitution and American history to demonstrate why self-defense is both morally and biblically sound.

Our Loss of Meaning is Causing Mass-Shootings

from the Federalist:

We Killed God, Family, And Community — And Now It’s Killing Us

We have discarded social institutions that have helped people understand their value and place in the world for thousands of years. And their decline is not just mirrored in the rise of mass shootings.

Once upon a time, you had meaning. You knew you had meaning because you had a mom and a dad who told you so, a God who loved you, and a community that needed you.

Once upon a time, if something happened to you, a significant number of people would mourn your death — not only because you were a good person and a good friend, but also because the community would suffer without your presence and skills. Now, the vast majority of people can barely count on one hand the number of people whose life would be truly altered by their passing.

For the most part, it can easily feel like no one cares about you anymore. Your skills are ubiquitous, you have no true community, and God doesn’t exist. So what, you may ask, is exactly the point? read more

Being Black and Christian doesn’t Fit In with National Women’s Soccer Team

When the choice is between one of best female soccer players in America and wearing a gay pride jersey, the National Women’s Soccer team chose the jersey. And did I mention that the player is black? Interestingly, there were no cries of racism from anyone on the woke left.

The absence of one of the best women’s soccer players in the nation from the national squad that just won the World Cup has prompted questions as to whether she didn’t make the team because of her openly professed Christian faith.

Jaelene Hinkle, 26, “has been called the top left defender in the U.S. game,” according to The Washington TimesFox News noted Hinkle “helped her team win the NWSL championship and previously helped it win a title in 2016 when it was known as the Western New York Flash.” read more

It’s Not July 4th, It’s Independence Day

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

On July 2, 1776, George Washington sent general orders to his officers explaining the war effort:

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them.

The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us no choice but a brave resistance, or the most abject submission; this is all we can expect. We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die. Our own Country’s Honor all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. read more

Supreme Court Rules: “Peace Cross” Stays Put

from HotAir:

7-2: SCOTUS Rules “Peace Cross” Can Remain On Public Land

If you need quickie background on this dispute, I’ve got you covered. I wrote about oral arguments in this case in February, noting how surprisingly skeptical even Breyer and Kagan sounded about the position of the cross’s opponents.

Now here we are four months later and Breyer and Kagan have sided with the Court’s conservatives in leaving the cross in place. Whaddaya know — sometimes you can read the tea leaves in oral arguments. read more

A Different Interpretation of the Easter Story

Emanuel Swedenborg offers us a different interpretation of the Easter story

It is Easter morning – a celebration of rebirth!

The Story of Easter in the Bible:

The Resurrection
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

Jesus-AscensionThe angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” read more

Yes, There are Real Hate Crimes Occurring in the United States

from the Federalist:

 The Epidemic Of Anti-Jewish Hate Crimes In Brooklyn Is No Hoax

While the nation was focused on a hoaxed hate crime, Brooklyn’s Jews have been repeatedly and actually attacked. Are we not discussing it because most of the perpetrators are black?

As much of the country was transfixed by a hoaxed hate crime in Chicago over the past month, a very real wave of hate crimes in Brooklyn has been taking place. In New York City overall there have been 36 hate crimes against Jews so far this year, according to The New York Times, compared to only 21 last year. In the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn alone, ultra-orthodox Jews have been violently attacked at least 15 times since October of last year. read more

32 Campus Religious Groups on Probation

from the Washington Free Beacon:

32 Religious Groups on Probation for Alleged Discrimination at University of Iowa

The University of Iowa has placed 32 campus religious groups on probation because they are supposedly in violation of the school’s anti-discrimination policy. The public became aware of the list during arguments in federal district court last week involving a Christian student group initially kicked off campus.

Business Leaders in Christ (BLinC) brought together students for weekly discussions centered on prayer and biblical messages. The mission of the group is to form future business leaders who integrate the values of their faith into their work. BLinC’s group leaders are expected to share its Christian faith. read more
