A Poverty of Understanding; the Climate Encyclical

Timothy Birdnow

God created poverty.

This proposition, while demonstrably true, is guaranteed to bring guffaws and cries of outrage by the religious Left, but it is true nonetheless. It hearkens back to the curse of Man in Genesis:

"Cursed is the ground because of you;

through painful toil you will eat food from it

all the days of your life.

It will produce thorns and thistles for you,

and you will eat the plants of the field.

No Great Honor being White in America

Timothy Birdnow

The Strange Timing of the Brian Williams Affair

Timothy Birdnow

Twelve years ago Brian Williams made an astonishing claim. He said a Chinook helicopter he was flying in was shot down in Iraq. Now, few would believe such a claim could be a lie, because nobody would make such an easily verifiable claim if it were. It is an exercise in the strategy of Joseph Goebbels; if you are going to lie you go all in.

There is only one problem; reality disagreed with Williams' claim. So did everyone who was present. The truth just… Continue

Liberal Little White Lies

Timothy Birdnow

"Can't see the forest for the trees", the old saying goes. That means that one’s vision is blocked by too close a proximity to the object in question, that details can obscure the bigger picture. Reality is lost in a forest of individual items, sometimes seemingly unconnected, but when viewed from a higher perspective form an interwoven tapestry, a greater whole.

As Pontius Pilate asked of Jesus 20000 years ago (or thereabouts) what is Truth? Truth is the… Continue

Stealing the Count; Obama Plans to do an Internet Census

Timothy Birdnow

Those who count the vote decide nothing. Those who count the voters decide everything.

Attributed to Joseph Stalin

He's doing it agaaaiin!

It has been observed that it is more important to be able to count the votes than to win them; creative counting can overcome a sizable shortfall. That is why hold the position of Secretary of State in the individual states is so important; the Sec. controls the counting process. Elections have been…

Media Hypocrisy in Ferguson Riots

Timothy Birdnow

One of the things I find so offensive about this Michael Brown story is the rank hypocrisy among so many who are covering this. Take the two journalists who were arrested the other day; they were furious over <a href=>being arrested after the officer asked them to leave</a> the McDonalds they were camping out in repeatedly. Strange; Washington Post journalist…

The Bonfire of the Vanities in Ferguson, Mo.

Timothy Birdnow

Does anybody remember the novel Bonfire of the Vanities?  In that 1987 novel by Tom Wolfe a "master of the universe" junk bond trader accidentally gets off the highway in "the hood" and runs over a black thug (among some thugs trying to get him to stop his car so that he could be robbed). Civil Rights activists - eager for the publicity their "struggle for justice" would bring - jump on this case, and the media runs with it (claiming the kid was an honor student…

Why the Liberals Hate Israel

Timothy Birdnow

There is much discussion these days of why the Media and liberals in general are so anti-Israel.

Stories about the Gaza war have headlines like "Israel Resumes Gaza Strikes After Cease-Fire Lull - ABC News" or "Israel Resumes Gaza Strikes After Cease-Fire Lull - ABC News"  or BBC News - Gaza conflict: UN accuses Israel over Jabaliya…
