High Noon and the Ranchers win it.  So much for the “Common Good”.  Smirk.

This is the kind of thing that inspires.

Militia members from Montana and Utah have already arrived at the ranch and indicate plenty more are headed that way. Operation Mutual Aid, a coalition of state militias, is planning a coordinated effort of support, according to West Mountain Rangers member Ryan Payne. “They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” he said earlier this week. Payne said the county should prepare for “a band of soldiers” responding to the standoff, explaining militias are necessary to be “the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants.” (Source)

Now you know why Americans see the right to bear arms as fundamental to protecting their freedom.    And they’re right, too.  Sometimes thugs only understand the justice that comes from looking down a barrel of a gun.  If you donna speaka da language, you donna make them capiche.

Watch video here.

In 1993, The Federal Bureau of Land Management created new fees on public grazing land in Clark County, Nevada. BLM officials came up with these fees to discourage ranching in order to protect an endangered tortoise. Bundy refused to pay for grazing on land that he and his family had been using for over 100 years. Now BLM officers have surrounded the ranch and are forcibly removing his cattle. In the meantime, as protests have grown, the BLM has restricted free speech to designated “zones”, and even violently confronted protesters.

Sure enough, as Socon or Bust predicted yesterday, Louise Mailloux has apologized.

Kinda.

Various media are reporting that she says she’s sorry if anyone was offended by her comparison of baptism and circumcision to rape. That’s the extent of her apology. In other words, she hasn’t changed her mind. She hasn’t realized that pouring water on someone’s head has no correlation whatsoever to being violently abused. Nope. She’s just sorry anybody was offended.

So her underlying views are unchanged. Is that someone you want to have authority to vote laws in this country? If not, take 30 seconds to sign this petition. The number of signatures is rising fast. The best part is that Ms. Mailloux receives an email each time somebody signs, so she must be freaking out by now.

And the Premier defends it! What does that say about the PQ?

Let me tell you : I know women who have been raped. It’s hell. This PQ candidate is committing the most extreme insult and banalization of women who have been raped. I think she’ll be apologizing publicly before the end of the week.

MONTREAL — Pauline Marois has defended a Parti Quebecois candidate who compared baptism and circumcision to rape.

Louise Mailloux, who is running for the PQ in the Montreal riding of Gouin, has also written in the past that a tax on kosher and halal foods helps to fund religious wars.

Mailloux, who is a philosophy professor, made the rape comparison in an essay on religious neutrality. It appeared in the book, Laïcité ça s’impose!, that was published in 2011.

Mailloux made clear this week that she stands by the statement.

Get a load of this statement by Obama on Crimea’s independence referendum:

“The proposed referendum on the future of Crimea would violate the constitution and violate international law,” Obama said. “We are well beyond the days when borders can be redrawn over the heads of democratic leaders.”

(Source)

It strikes me that the same would be true of a Quebec referendum on sovereignty. Pauline had better take notice that Obama may not be as passive during a Quebec referendum as Clinton was in 1995.

Pope Francis’s official statement says, “Paying tribute to the steadfast commitment shown by Nelson Mandela in promoting the human dignity of all the nation’s citizens and in forging a new South Africa built on the firm foundations of non-violence, reconciliation and truth, I pray that the late President’s example will inspire generations of South Africans to put justice and the common good at the forefront of their political aspirations.” (Source)

When the paradigm is shifted to include unborn children in the quest for human dignity, how can the highlighted text above be anything but cruelly false?

Mandela was actively pro-abortion, and not just an incidental player in the Great Genocide. There will be no praises from Socon or Bust for his legacy.   The much good that he did do (or not) was wiped out  by his pro-abort beliefs and political activism which sought the eradication of unborn children.

May God have mercy on his soul.

Pope Francis has disappointed us again, sadly.    He has spoken in defense of the unborn on many occasions, but this time he dropped the ball.

The dignity and witness to unborn life requires refraining from praising political and social activists who seek to destroy human life, or at the very least giving some semblance of balance to the picture that is being painted of their tragic legacies.

Why is it guys like Mandela get a glowing tribute but the traditional Catholic recipients of +++Francis’s arrows in the Church get no quarter?  Can someone explain to me how that calculus works, please?

No one in their right mind would be praising a pro-pedophile politician (at least not yet), even if he was the greatest “human rights defender” the world has ever seen.  But when it comes to abortion,  everyone and their dog gets a pass.  There is no accountability or even pause by those who need to share their opinion of pro-abort activists before the tongue bathing and hand wringing begins on these activists’ accomplishments.  (Mandela also had three wives and was a Communist, but these are mere trifles in the bigger debate, of course.)

This double-mindedness and mental illness concerning passing over the advocacy of abortion as having any real impact on a person’s legacy or the cult of personality that we worship over and above the truth really does have to end.

There are bleeding heart liberals all over the place, but it’s nothing like what we see from Church leadership today.  The sad fact is that there are bleeding hearts… those ones belonging to the unborn, and they continue to bleed because of, or at the very least are not saved by, this kind of witness.

Have we forgotten the Commandment:  THY SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS?

In 2007 Conservative party brass in Ottawa cut off Heather Stilwell’s run for the Conservative nomination in a B.C. riding. Stilwell had launched her campaign prior despite warnings that the Conservative Party would not allow her to run due to her history as a prominent advocate for the right-to-life and the traditional family. The party’s decision was reversed days after LifeSiteNews.com broke the story. Harper rejected the candidacy of outspoken social conservative John Pacheco, organizer of the 15,000-strong March for Marriage on Parliament Hill in 2005, during the Ottawa West nomination that same year in a move to protect the party’s preferred candidate John Baird, a staunch proponent of homosexual ‘marriage’. Pacheco, an unflinching pro-life advocate who runs the blog Socon or Bust, welcomed the news of Chong’s bill. “Since the political culture in Ottawa is firmly rooted in the culture of death, any structural change that lessens its grip and gives more influence and leverage to the pro-life movement and pro-life MPs is a good thing,” he told LifeSiteNews.com. “Time and time again, whether it’s abortion, gay ‘marriage’, or euthanasia, we see that the people are against these totalitarian and destructive ideologies, yet the political class and the power-brokers behind the scenes ram it through anyway.” Pacheco sees the bill as benefiting the political effort to protect unborn life. “It stands to reason that anything we can do to saturate government’s power is a good thing for the pro-life movement. This measure and any others like it should be strongly backed by people who value family and life,” he said. (Source)

Sooner or later, the totalitarian impulse is confronted.  It would be great if this Bill passed.  When I organized the March, I should have had the gonads to deny Harper a speaking platform.

Appearing with Wolf Blitzer Thursday on CNN, Michele Bachmann said she is one of the victims of Obamacare who is losing their health insurance and must try to find a new plan.

You know things are really screwed up when the politicians don’t take care of themselves.  Obamacare is a real disaster.

It also serves as a relevant reminder to the social justice clerics and lesbian religious in the Church who want to get into public policy debates, especially the bishops who pushed this thing a little too much.   They need to take responsibility as well.

In the past, under JP2, the Church’s natural ally was the U.S. against communism.  Today, the Catholic Church looks to Russia and the Orthodox to counter the West’s slide into the totalitarianism of sin.

Very interesting times ahead.  I predict many years of closer and closer collaboration among between Catholics, Orthodox and other ecclesial communities.

The Cross and suffering always bring true Christians closer together.  An eternity of ecumenical clap trap does not amount to one drop of blood of a common witness to Christ.

Trudeau has insulted Canadians on many fronts with this event. As we remember the thousands of Canadians who gave their lives to fight dictators and preserve freedom, the aspiring PM prefers dictatorships.

He needs to apologize immediately.

During the event, which itself was widely criticized for sexist and patronizing undertones, an audience member asked Mr. Trudeau which nation’s “administration he most admired.”

The party leader responded: “There is a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say we need to go green, we need to start, you know, investing in solar. There is a flexibility that I know Stephen Harper must dream about: having a dictatorship where you can do whatever you wanted, that I find quite interesting.”

Here are some highlights related to family issues from today’s Speech from the Throne, which outlines the government’s priorities for the upcoming legislative sitting. Not all of these announcements are specific policy initiatives yet.  Some are more like themes.  The specifics will likely be announced in the upcoming Budget.

The bullets below are copied verbatim from the Speech, in no particular order.  Read the rest of this entry »
