The bigger news

As Washington newshounds wondered whether the Trump administration will crash, the June 19 issue of Current Biology unveiled a new study about the eyes and brains of unborn babies that should ratchet up the pressure on those committed to aborting a million of them each year.

Let’s back up a moment to explain. Charles Darwin wrote in 1859 as if cells were stackable blocks of wood rather than the intricate factories we now know they are. The Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 was the great-great-grandson of On the Origin of Species: It disregarded the origin of babies and decreed it legal in every state to treat unborn children as if they were Lego blocks.

Doctors then knew, and through ultrasounds we now all know, what Psalm 139 teaches: In our mothers’ wombs we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Christians should never be anti-science: That’s especially true now, as science affirms Biblical truth in so many ways. Steve Meyer notes in Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt that discoveries are dooming Darwinism. Other studies—unborn babies moving their lips to sounds they hear, and choosing to watch lights that look like faces—should doom abortion lobby attempts to dehumanize them.

Western Civilization Bedeviled

“The real threat to Western civilization is Western civilization ceasing to believe in itself.” Dennis Prager

“And, in that regard, Russia poses no danger, while the left-wing-dominated media and universities pose an existential threat.” Ibid

“Is Putin the reason Oxford University students voted that Israel is a greater threat to peace than Hamas?” Ibid

Nukes Threaten People; Ideas Threaten Civilizations

Dennis Prager, Frontpagemag.com, July 18, 2017

Last week, I tweeted, “The news media in the West pose a far greater danger to Western civilization than Russia does.”

To my surprise, the tweet went viral. And while there were more likes than dislikes, 99 percent of the written reactions were negative.

Typical reactions were:

–“F— you.”

–“Move to Russia.”

–“Your very full diapers pose a very great danger, please change them.” That received 1,880 likes.

–“I’ve wiped s— off my shoes more trustworthy and patriotic than your sorry a–.” That received 606 likes.

You get the idea.

Russian Intervention 1919-2017

“The Communist Party USA was a Russian project from the beginning, managed by the Comintern, which Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, also known as Lenin, set up way back in 1919.’’ Lloyd Billingsley

CHECKLIST FOR MUELLER

Getting “to the bottom” of Russian intervention.

Christopher Wray, President Trump’s nominee for FBI director is drawing bipartisan approval and appears headed for confirmation. Wray does not doubt the intelligence community on Russian interference in the 2016 election and he does not consider Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe a witch hunt. As FBI director he would provide Mueller with all appropriate resources for his investigation.

Senator Ted Cruz describes Mueller as a “good and honorable man,” and Sen. John Thune calls the former FBI boss “a man of integrity” and perfect for the Russia probe. “He is going to get to the bottom and he is going to find the facts,” Thune told MSNBC. The Special Counsel should start at the very beginning of Russian intervention in American elections.

As Harvey Klehr noted in the New York Times, the Communist Party USA was a Russian project from the beginning, managed by the Comintern, which Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, also known as Lenin, set up way back in 1919. This Russian political party intervened in American elections by running candidates, and one is still around.

Angela Davis was the keynote speaker at the Women’s March in January but back in 1979 Russia gave Davis the International Lenin Peace Prize. In 1980 Davis was the vice-presidential candidate of the Communist Party USA, on a ticket with white Stalinist Gus Hall. This duo also lost to Ronald Reagan in 1984 but it hasn’t emerged how much money Russia poured into the contest. Continue reading
