Those Pesky Polar Bears

Delingpole: Polar Bears Doing Just Fine Shock 

Susan Crockford, arguably the world’s greatest polar bear expert, has some really bad news for environmentalists.

Their favorite ursine poster child of climate doom is doing great. Polar bear populations are stable, if not growing. That stuff you read in the liberal media about bears starving to death because thin summer sea ice is pure nonsense. The only evidence we have that polar bears are in any kind of trouble is the fake evidence of activists’ computer models.

Crockford’s full State of the Polar Bear Report 2017, produced for the Global Warming Policy Foundation, can be read here.

Here is a summary of its conclusions: Continue reading

Insanity Explained

694940094001_5748406540001_5748403639001-vs“The current leftist reversion to paganism and pagan mythology teaches that the concept of morality is infinitely malleable and entirely subject to individual human will. That concept increasingly means that the left deems Christians, who believe in a universal moral order, insane…Christians, whose narrative of several thousand years has been the basis of Western civilization, are deemed mad. They are the outliers in a country that was and still largely is Christian.” Fay Voshell

“As he [the apostle Paul] was making his defense this way, Festus exclaimed in a loud voice, ‘You’re out of your mind, Paul! Too much study is driving you mad.” Acts 26:24

Madness, Christianity, and the Left

Fay Voshell, American Thinker, February 17, 2018

We should be glad that people with senile dementia or other severe mental problems are not treated as badly as they were in the not so distant past.  But lately, a new and dangerous form of thinking about mental illness has arisen – one in which those formerly considered insane are now considered normal or at least trendy, and one in which sane religious folk are considered nutcases unworthy of public office or other positions of responsibility.  To put it another way, what was once considered mad is now deemed sane, while people once considered sane are now the ones attacked as being mad as hatters and as vicious haters.

For some time, it has been in vogue among the left to consider Christianity itself an insane belief system.  Certainly, such seems to be the case for some of the talking heads on ABC’s The View.  According to Joy Behar, one of the most dangerously insane people in the United States is the vice president of the United States, Mike Pence.

Let’s be frank: a well known spokeswoman has so thoroughly absorbed the left’s definition of insanity that she believes she can trash without consequence a good man whose core beliefs are based on beliefs held by Judaism and Christianity for over four thousand years.  Of course, she would never dream of trashing the Muslim mayor of London in a similar manner.

Disarmed Aaron Feis

feisEditor’s note: The second I heard about the Florida High School killings [murders] I said to my wife—I bet that High School was a “gun-free zone” and made sure its security guard was disarmed and defenseless. If Aaron Feis only had a 22 pistol (much less a Glock 45) the whole situation would have been different. So who really is responsible for the death of 17 defenseless students? Who really should be jailed?

“It was obvious for a long time that the Fort Hood shooter was trouble, but the government did not protect his fellow workers from him. The problem was not the gun laws; it was that government did not do its job.” Jack Hellner, American Thinker, February 19, 2018

“The killer in the mass murder at a church in Florida should have been blocked from getting a gun, but the military did not do its job by informing authorities. The problem was not the lack of gun control or gun laws; it was that the government did not do its job.” Ibid

“The killer of 17 in Florida last week was well known to authorities, so why didn’t a background check block this mentally ill person f rom getting a gun? They visited his house over thirty times. Isn’t that enough? The FBI also received tips regarding this killer but did not do its job. Again, the law wasn’t the problem.” Ibid

“Aaron Feis was the right man in the right place at the right time, but he was legally prevented from using the right, constitutionally protected tool to do the job…Mr. Feis was legally disarmed by the federal government in his attempt to save potentially dozens of children from murder.” Patrick Jakeway

Hero Aaron Feis, the Disarmed School Guard

Patrick Jakeway, American Thinker, February 19, 2018

Aaron Feis was the right man in the right place at the right time, but he was legally prevented from using the right, constitutionally protected tool to do the job.  Mr. Feis was shot on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, shielding students from a killer with his own body.  Ultimately, he and 16 other people, mainly students, died.  Mr. Feis was truly a remarkable and courageous man.

Most media reports have focused on his after-school job as a Stoneman Douglas High football coach (herehereherehere, and here) – but, on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Feis was doing his day job as a school guard.  Mr. Feis was legally disarmed by the federal government in his attempt to save potentially dozens of children from murder.  Continue reading
