Cough Up, Minions!

~ IT’S TIME FOR CONSERVATIVE PEOPLE to put up, or shut up. Support conservative causes, buy conservative books, subscribe to the magazines, donate to our various online causes, and do it now.

One thing liberals and radicals do is put their money where their mouth is. We need to develop a habit of doing that, along with supporting our religious and other essential charities as we find them near us.

Yesterday, I signed on at the intro level of $5 monthly to Pajamas Media. It’s an awesome service, and there are higher levels of support for those who can afford it. They feature folks like Stephen Crowder, Bill Whittle, Andrew Klavan, Roger Simon, Hugh Hewitt, and Mr. & Mrs. Instapundit– Glenn & Helen Reynolds.

It’s not enough to make noises, complain, and vote once in a while– as we spend on TVs or vacations or whatnot. These are hard times for many people– so we must support good conservative folk in their work– especially given the discriminatory bullying some conservative U.S. magazines are getting via the partisan US Post Office, which has been loading up extra mailing-charges on anti-Obama print media. No kidding. Ask Human Events.

Again, if you’re in the area, sign up for the Halifax Free Speech Conference with Ezra, Binks & Company in September. Spread the word. Expect to be pleasantly surprised: the word has still to get out to a lot of good-willed folk.

Thanks for listening to my rant. ~



Red Ted Kennedy

~ ITEM: Ted Kennedy dead (updated); Bill Bennett’s commentary on Senator Edward Kennedy.

~ ITEM: FrontPage Magazine – Ted Kennedy and the KGB; Ted Kennedy was a ‘collaborationist’

~ ITEM: MALKIN– The Kennedy KGB letter, Updated with info about the NIE leak

~ ITEM: KGB Letter Details Kennedy Offer To USSR; Senator Ted Kennedy cooperated with the KGB, Soviet leaders to undermine Reagan

~ ITEM: Ted Kennedy’s Catholicism

~ ITEM: Note to weeping media: Mary Jo Kopechne still dead

Rest eternal grant unto him, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him.

~ WHILE THE world moves on, one of the abiding figures of the last U.S. Progressive outbreak (under Lyndon Johnson) has died: the lesser brother of the Kennedy clan.

One aspect of his political past that has received scant attention is his hatred of Ronald Reagan. How much did he hate that Republican president? Enough to give information, advice, and to make visits to the USSR to help them oppose Reagan and his conservative agenda. Like so many shameful aspects of the Cold War, the memory-hole has kept his reputation rather more spotless than it deserves.

At best, he might be pardoned this crime as a useful idiot– but it seems that he was rather more than that, in cooperating with the KGB and Soviet Regime to undermine the democracy of his own country, by seeking to undermine and weaken the duly elected president, according to the overwhelming popular vote of Americans.

The Left is supremely skilled at forgetting, changing, or misrepresenting its own ugly history, support of tyrants and death-dealing regimes, and disloyalty and treason to its own side, whether for utopian or political reasons.

Why mention it now, when it seems merely speaking ill of the dead?

Because, for all his peregrinations, temptations, and misdeeds, Edward Kennedy was a Catholic Christian. He departs this life to go to meet his Lord face to face, and receive judgement and so to eternal life or eternal death.

None of us who describe ourselves as Christians can discount that we have an eternal destiny, partly in consequence of our life and choices. This is a powerful doctrine behind our Western understanding of justice, individual moral responsibility, freedom and choice, and how we are intertwined with one another in sin and grace in life. Mushy Christians say that judgement is mean. I say that unless we have a powerful sense of judgement, purgatory,and life to come, then we allow the murdered and the murderer irrational and unjust equality in the end.

As that sense of moral and eternal consequences erodes in society and the legal and other insitutions founded upon it, we do not find some kind of ultimate freedom, but irresponsibility, victimology, barefaced lying, ignobility, and cruelty as the result. Without God, anything is permissible, foretold Dostoevsky of his own Russian society, not long after overtaken by the inhumanized iron comrades of the blood-thirsty god Stalin.

From the USSR came Communist China; the miseries of Indo-China, Cuba, various African nations, and the counless dead, crushed, and broken people because of Soviet Imperialism. THAT is what Ted Kennedy and his fellow travellers and hard-core radicals were encouraging and supporting. If it was the Star Wars universe, such folk would be cheering for Vader and the Emperor.

My prayers go out to his family. God have mercy on him. Lord Jesu, have mercy upon me, a sinner. ~


~ ITEM: Daily Kos sides with Islamic supremacists who want to extinguish free speech and oppress women and non-Muslims

~ DUNNO ABOUT YOU, but when I see a persecution or Auschwitz/ Nazi movie, I must honestly ask myself “And what would I do, under those circumstances?” I’ve known a little soft persecution and such, but when put to the point– say, under evil Nazis– would any of us bear up, let alone not look the other way, or turn coat, or betray others to save ourselves?

And shame– they say– on ‘Hitler’s Pope’ (he wasn’t), the Nazi Christians, and on all those other collaborators with evil.

Sad to say, for some– liberal religious folk, U.S. RINOs, Sorosified Democrats– they all seem super-fast to bend the knee unto friendly tyranny in the guise of Obama and his handlers. Never mind standing tough or fighting back against such things, or providing a loyal oppostion when he goes wrong– — since they share the heaven-on-earth at any cost utopianism, they love teh Glorious Leader.

National Socialism? Cool! Demonizing all opponents? Sweet! Messianic language and images of The Leader? Bring it on! Propaganda, lies, and blather? The leg-thrills just keep a-comin’!

So the imaginary after-the fact heroism people sometimes feel while watching movies or documentaries has little to do with how they’d actually respond to a real threat to freedom in our own time. But this is hardly a surprise when it comes to the left– as long as he’s communist or Islamist, the Left has never met a dictator it didn’t like.

What’s especially sad are the Bushitler demonizers warning about the loss of freedom, and creeping tyranny, and all that– until it’s their guy in control, when precisely the same concerns should be voice about freedoms and human rights, but suddenly those same ‘freedom-fighters’ have morphed into cheerleaders. ~
