Mike Ferrell and Cuba

​“’Do not search for evidence,’ Dzerzhinsky’s top lieutenant Martin Latsis instructed his hangmen in the Ukraine. ‘Simply ask him to what class he belongs, what are his origins, education, and profession. Those are the questions that should decide the fate of the accused.’

​“Upon entering Havana in January 1959 [Cheka chief Felix] Dzerzhinsky’s disciple and Castro’s chief hangman Che Guevara adopted the Cheka code almost word for word: ‘Judicial evidence is an archaic bourgeois detail,’ he instructed his
‘prosecutors.’ ‘We execute and jail from revolutionary conviction.’” Humberto Fontova, Townhall.com, July 13, 2012

M.A.S.H. Star Partners with Castro’s Spy Agency
Jul 13, 2012
Though a consistently good show, few conservatives mistook M.A.S.H for anything but pinko propaganda. Last week long-time M.A.S.H star Mike Farrell (Capt. B.J. Hunnicut) took the last few baby-steps and started spouting outright Communist propaganda.

In a letter to President Obama, Farrell officially partners with Castro’s KGB-trained DGI urging the release of five of their agents and officers who were convicted in 2001 of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. and conspiracy to murder Americans. The Supreme Court has twice upheld the convictions of these Communist terrorists and accessories to murder. In 1933, Stalin’s propaganda chief, Willi Munzenberg, re-monikered the Soviet Comintern as the “International Aid Committee for the Victims of Fascism.” The Soviet’s Cuban satraps and their celebrity propaganda auxiliaries have one-upped even Munzenberg. These convicted Castroite terrorists– we’re now given to understand by the former M.A.S.H star– are actually peace-loving anti-terrorists, flower-children of sorts. Here’s the heart of Farrell’s letter:

Dear President Obama,

“Release them because they came here only to monitor the activities of violent Cuban exiles who, operating from bases in Miami of which our government is well aware, were planning violent actions against innocent people in Cuba. Release them because they were trying to prevent more brutal acts against their country and save innocent lives.”

But according to the FBI’s affidavit, the convicted Castro-agents who Farrell champions were engaged in, among other acts:

• Gathering intelligence against the Boca Chica Air Naval Station in Key West, the McDill Air Force Base in Tampa and the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in Homestead, Fla.

• Compiling the names, home addresses and medical files of the U.S. Southern Command’s top officers, along with those of hundreds of officers stationed at Boca Chica.

• Infiltrating the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command.

• Sending letter bombs to Cuban-Americans.

• Spying on McDill Air Force Base, the U.S. armed forces’ worldwide headquarters for fighting “low-intensity” conflicts.

• Locating entry points into Florida for smuggling explosives.

Farrell’s poster-boys also infiltrated the Cuban-exile group Brothers to the Rescue, who flew unarmed planes to rescue Cuban rafters in the Florida straits, also known as “the cemetery without crosses.” The estimates of the number of Cubans dying horribly in the “cemetery without crosses,” run from 50,000-85,000. Brothers to The Rescue risked their lives almost daily, flying over the straits, alerting and guiding the Coast Guard to any balseros, and saving thousands of these desperate people from joining that terrible tally.

God Particle

“In the beginning Go created the heavens and the earth.”  Moses, Genesis 1:1

“The LORD founded the earth by wisdom and established the heavens by understanding.  By His knowledge the watery depths broke open, and the clouds dripped with dew.”  Solomon, Proverbs 3:19, 20

“How countless are your works, LORD! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.” David, Psalm 104:24

“In these last days, He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things and through whom He made the universe.  He is the radiance of His glory, the exact expression of His nature, and He sustains all things by His powerful word.” Paul, Hebrews 1:2,3

“Time, then, and the heaven came into being at the same instant…Such was the mind and thought of God in the creation of time.” Plato, Timaeus

            “Mind, the ruling power, persuaded necessity to bring the greater part of created things to perfection, and thus and after this manner in the beginning, when the influence of reason got the better of necessity, the universe was created.” Plato, Ibid.

            “There was yet a fifth combination which God used in the delineation of the universe.”  Plato, Ibid.

            “I now believe that the universe was brought into existence by an infinite Intelligence.  I believe that this universe’s intricate laws manifest what scientists have called the Mind of God.  I believe that life and reproduction originate in a divine Source.”  Antony Flew, There Is A God, p. 88

“Three domains of scientific inquiry have been especially important for me, and I will consider them as we proceed in the light of today’s evidence. The first is the question that puzzled and continues to puzzle most reflective scientists:  How did the laws of nature come to be?  The second is evident to all:  How did life as a phenomenon originate from nonlife?  And the third is the problem that philosophers handed over to cosmologists:  How did the universe, by which we mean all that is physical, come into existence?” Ibid., p.91

“It is important to realize that in physics today, we have no knowledge of what energy is.”  Richard Feynman, Six Easy Pieces, p. 71

“It is important to realize that in physics today, we have no knowledge of particles inside the nucleus, and we have formulas for that, but we do not have the fundamental laws.  We know that it is not electrical, not gravitational, and not purely chemical, but we do not know what it is.” Ibid.

“We seem gradually to be groping toward an understanding of the world of sub-atomic particles, but we really do not know how far we have yet to go in this task.” Ibid., p. 44

“We now think we have uncovered the force or the matter that gives us the four percent of the universe that we can observe (96 percent of the universe consists of ‘dark matter,’ about which scientists know almost nothing).” Dennis Prager, “The ‘God-Particle’ and God,” FrontPageMagazine, July 10, 2012

“In nearly every issue of Free Inquiry, Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens pontificate on why God doesn’t exist, telling their readers that they are basing their atheism on ‘science’ and ‘reason.’  However, science knows nothing about 96% of the universe consisting of dark matter and dark energy.  Whence such certainty?”  David A. Noebel, “God, Science and Beauty.”

 The ‘God-Particle’ and God

By Dennis Prager; FrontPageMag.com – July 10, 2012

They found the “God-Particle.”

That was the headline in many of America’s news media. It turns out that the name actually derives from substituting “God-particle” for “goddamn particle,” the original name some scientists had given the elusive particle. But the media adopted the former nomenclature. Continue reading

Nothing Spent Comes Free

“’From the time of Pericles until the end of the 18th century in London—2,300 years,’ notes Harvard Prof. Lawrence Summers, ‘standards of living on Earth increased perhaps 100%.’

“In the U.S. since 1790, by contrast, real per capital gross domestic product has increased nearly 4,000%.  Quality of life, in other words, increased 40 times more in 220 years of American history than it had globally over two millennia.  In 2012, a typical American in the bottom fifth of the income distribution has a far higher quality of life—and life expectancy—than the average member of the top 1% in 1790.” Matthew Schoenfeld, The Wall Street Journal, July 11, 2012, p. A11

“People tend to forget that the government can only get money from taxing, borrowing, or printing.  Nothing the government spends comes for free.  Money taxed or borrowed is taken out of the private sector, where it could have been used more productively.  Printed money merely creates inflation.”  Peter Schiff, Townhall.com,

The Real Fiscal Cliff

By Peter Schiff – July 11, 2012 – Townhall.com

The media is now fixated on an apparently new feature dominating the economic landscape: a “fiscal cliff” from which the United States will fall in January 2013. They see the danger arising from the simultaneous implementation of the $2 trillion in automatic spending cuts (spread over 10 years) agreed to in last year’s debt ceiling vote and the expiration of the Bush era tax cuts.

The economists to whom most reporters listen warn that the combined impact of reduced government spending and higher taxes will slow the “recovery” and perhaps send the economy back into recession. While there is indeed much to worry about in our economy, this particular cliff is not high on the list.

Much of the fear stems from the false premise that government spending generates economic growth (for stories of countries experiencing real growth, see our latest newsletter). People tend to forget that the government can only get money from taxing, borrowing, or printing. Nothing the government spends comes for free. Money taxed or borrowed is taken out of the private sector, where it could have been used more productively. Printed money merely creates inflation.

So the automatic spending cuts, to the extent they are actually allowed to go into effect, will promote economic growth not prevent it. Even most Republicans fall for the canard that spending can help the economy in general. But even those who don’t will surely do everything to avoid the political backlash from citizens on the losing end of any specific cuts. Continue reading
