Jesuitical Thinking at its Worst

James Taranto points out the hypocrisy of a Boston College Theology Professor who criticizes a Harvard Law Professor being awarded a medal at Notre Dame. Mary Ann Glendon declined the honor because she would be on the podium with Obama, prompting morality-muddled moron Kenneth Himes, the chair of the BC theology dept., to declaim:
"There are some well-meaning people who think Notre Dame has given away its Catholic identity, because they have been caught up in the gamesmanship of American higher education, bringing in a star commencement speaker even if that means sacrificing their values, and that accounts for some of this," said the Rev. Kenneth Himes, chairman of theology department at Boston College. "But one also has to say that there is a political game going on here, and part of that is that you demonize the people who disagree with you, you question their integrity, you challenge their character, and you brand these people as moral poison. Some people have simply reduced Catholicism to the abortion issue, and, consequently, they have simply launched a crusade to bar anything from Catholic institutions that smacks of any sort of open conversation."

But there is another side to this forked-tongue Jesuitical thinker's mouth:
Nearly 100 faculty members at Boston College have signed a letter objecting to the college's decision to award Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice an honorary degree.
The letter entitled "Condoleezza Rice Does Not Deserve a Boston College Honorary Degree," was written by the Rev. Kenneth Himes. . . .
"On the levels of both moral principle and practical moral judgment, Secretary Rice's approach to international affairs is in fundamental conflict with Boston College's commitment to the values of the Catholic and Jesuit traditions and is inconsistent with the humanistic values that inspire the university's work," the letter said.

Looks like Rev. Himes flunked Moral Theology on his way to getting the dubious post of chairing the BC Theology Dept. Or maybe he's just a shallow, jesuitical thinker. And as a final fillip, the following sentence was in the AP article concerning the Condy Rice article:
The theology department said nearly 100 have signed it, but declined to release their names, The Boston Globe reported Wednesday.

Given Himes' transparent insincerity and lack of moral principle, should we take it on his word that "nearly 100 have signed it?"

Kowtowing Nets Carry Obama Live---Except for FOX!

ABC, CBS, & NBC [Pravda, Isvestia, & TASS for the Uninitiated] will predictably froth at the mouth as FOX not only becomes the top cable news network, but the top entertainment channel as well. Hilariously, FOX will carry a TV fiction show called "Lie to Me" while the other three carry a reality-show version of the same thing, a live Obama news conference.

My guess is that FOX will top the combined net audience just as FOXNews tops the combined audience of CNN & MSNBC.

Botox Smiling Pelosi Lying to America---Again.

"Liberal Amnesia" is what a polite WSJ columnist calls Nancy Pelosi's lies about her not being told about waterboarding when she was Ranking Minority Member of the House Intell Cte [putting a lying cretinette in that position defines Democratic perv politics] and one of four members of Congress given a briefing:
"For more than an hour," the Washington Post reported in 2007, "the bipartisan group . . . was given a virtual tour of the CIA's overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.

"Among the techniques described," the story continued, "was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But on that day, no objections were raised. Instead, at least two lawmakers in the room asked the CIA to push harder."

Don't expect the dying dead-tree libtards to call the brain-defective and morally retarded Speaker on this issue, just as Harry Reid hasn't been reprimanded for saying two years ago, during a time of great moral hazard to our soldiers as the surge kicked in: "The surge has failed, the war is lost."

Now a hair-plug morally retarded carpetbagger in Pennsylvania is switching parties because he would fail to get the Republican nomination for Senate next year. At least one party in the US has some sense of accountability in choosing its members. As for Specter, good riddance to bad rubbish.

Gore's Sci-Fi Comedy Show to Congress

Cowardly Democrats refused to let Lord Monckton, a distinguished climate expert, testify for the Republicans on Capitol Hill Friday, after a surprise 'celebrity' witness by the Dems named Gore-bot.

Obviously, a learned climate expert like Monckton would make the D+ Science Student Albert the Bore look even sillier than he normally does. Instead, Newt Gingrich will do some grandstanding.

JournoListers Align to Support "Internet Neutrality" as Run-Up to "Fairness Doctrine"

Brad O'Leary will be on Glenn Beck Monday at 5PM to talk about the Obamaniacs' Plan, aided and abetted & supported by Obama's friend from Harvard Law named Julius Genachowsk, to impose Internet Neutrality, the launching pad for a Stealth Plan to impose the Fairness Doctrine, quick-like-a-bunny, before the Republicans can profit by the backlash of real Americans in 2010 and elect a GOP House & Senate. With Dem leadership vacuums like Pelosi & Reid, this is entirely possible, but in the interim, the Dems are going to ape Leftist Parties the world over---Hugo Chavez in Venezuela is the most recent example---and attempt to hamstring or even eliminate the opposition.

The takeover of the Dem Party by feverish apparatchiki and cadres such JournoList tyros & MSNBC sports-of-nature betokens a strong Putsch against the US Constitution's Checks and Balances carefully written into law by Madison, Jefferson, Adams and presided over by Washington to ensure that a band of desperadoes do not attempt a coup de pouce or "micro-coup d'etat" because of a temporary ascendancy due to MSM hysterics and BHO opaqueness.

We have elected a pig-in-a-poke POTUS and now must defend the Constitution from elected Fifth Columns in the House and Senate.

Stopping "net neutrality" hocus pocus is the first order of business in retaining the First Amendment rights the Left so dearly wants to deprive us of.

Noonan Nitwittery Continues

Bland Affluence is the title of Noonan's latest excursion outside her Golden Ghetto in mid-town Manhattan & the Upper West Side Fantasyland the NYT aims its delusional screeds. Noonan is more a West Sider than ever, and she projects a sort of White Noise silliness in explaining how "All shall be well" in T.S. Eliot tones.

Noonan is an anecdotal fabulist, not a rational analyst, and like the funhouse mirrors that appear to surround Manhattan when it gazes westward, her mind is bent, twisted into grotesque curlicues and downright AWOL whenever she ruminates outside the asphalt & concrete sidewalks of New York City.

Noonan actually romanticizes the Boomer Generation, a collection of sodholes whose entitlement frenzies have bankrupted the US fiscally and morally. These feckless pursuers of material wealth while pretending to be on a spiritual quest are unintentionally satirized by this fulsome rubbish:
The baby boomers who for 40 years, from 1968 through 2008, did the grunt work of the great abundance—work was always a long-haul trip for them, they were the first in the office in 1975 and are the last to leave the office to this day—know the era they built is over, that something new is beginning, something more subdued and altogether more mysterious. The old markers of success—money, status, power—will not quite apply as they have. They watch and work as the future emerges.

Yeah, after Stalin was denounced in 1956 by Khrushchev, "the era they built" began to fade and "something new" began, but not "something more subdued and altogether more mysterious."

Noonan of course has it all wrong. The Greatest Generation did the grunt work and giants like George Kennan and Angus Deming and McCloy and others strategized the PostWar resistance to tyranny. This airhead has forgotten that what the Boomers did from 1968 to today was undermine authority and seek compromises which her former boss, Ronald Wilson Reagan, indulged in only when they fit into his all-in poker game to win the entire pot. The Russians and leftist Democrats who use the USSR as a template for their cultural overthrow of Western Civilization like to play chess. They hate it when GWB changed the rules on them and used their Stalinist organs to suppress his name and blacken the reputation of the USA.

Noonan is oblivious and clueless about all this, and had to get a piece in by deadline, which she did. I'm going out today to buy Liberty and Tyranny, a book which isn't a waste of dead trees like Patriotic Grace.

J. Edgar Napolitano Sweeps Aside Constitution to Protect Big Govt

Don Surber has a great list of how to identify a DHS "right-wing radical:"
But the more indicators a person has, the more likely that person is a member of the VRWC.

1. Pays his or her taxes on time and in full.

2. Meets his or her mortgage payment each month on time and in full.

3. Displays the flag.

4. Respects the U.S. military.

5. Stands up when the “Star Spangled Banner” is played.

6. Considered John McCain to be a moderate.

7. Never had tofu.

8. Thinks the Constitution protects the people, and not the government.

9. Thinks the Constitution protects Americans, not foreigners who attack our soldiers.

10. Thinks gun ownership is guaranteed by the Constitution.

As a commenter from The American Conservative Party notes, the Alien & Sedition Acts tried to limit criticism of the government and the SCOTUS almost let the First Amendment get fried. Obama's mindless myrmidons in the vast Fed Govt may soon want to make us carry IDs and will forbid politics if it isn't within the narrow socialist guidelines set forth by the Won & Nancy/Harry's numbnut brigades.

The zampolit are close to closing down dialogue. Restrictions on Talk Radio & limitations on free speech [What is "hate speech?] are already growing.

Salon Buttboy Greenwald Biyotch-slapped by WSJ

Faux-News Blogger Greenwald is the Jewish gay counterpart to Gentile Goyish hysteric hyperventilator Excitable Andy in making hilariously silly "comparsions" and illiterate falsehoods about their political opponents. Now the Brazilian boy-toy Glenn G. is taking on Obama as well, as he loves to load both his GI-tract orifices with cannon fodder. Here is Taranto's compleat slamdown of a tedious moronic poseur with no cred & less honesty:
Salon's Glenn Greenwald is a shrill, tiresome and undisciplined writer, but every now and then he unwittingly provides some entertainment. In an interminable post faulting President Obama for failing to keep his campaign promises to terrorists, Greenwald offers the following observation:
One of the things I always found so striking about debates over Bush/Cheney executive power abuses was that Bush followers who admittedly had no substantive arguments to justify those actions would nonetheless still find reasons to defend their admired leader: Bush knows more than we do and probably has secret reasons for doing it. Bush is a good person and well-motivated and there's no reason to think he's doing bad or abusive things. Rights for Terrorists pale in comparsion [sic] to other more important issues. Republican critics of Bush are hysterics and paranoids who are only criticizing him because they want to get on TV and sell books.
As of January 20, 2009, one no longer finds those claims at National Review, Weekly Standard, right-wing blogs and the like . .
Although we have plenty of substantive arguments to justify our views, it gives us pleasure to stipulate the following for the record: Obama knows more than we do and probably has secret reasons for doing it. Obama is a good person and well-motivated and there's no reason to think he's doing bad or abusive things. Rights for terrorists pale in comparison to other more important issues. Democratic critics of Obama are hysterics and paranoids who are only criticizing him because they want to get on TV and sell books.

More people read the WSJ than Salon, and when you factor in the fact that the readers of WSJ can read, think, and spell clearly about ten to one for the Salon dilettantes, then you know Glenn G. has bricked himself into his own little death niche, ala The Cask of Amontillado.

Palmerston Was Right---Go For the Hornet's Nest

The Beeb isn't always a supporter of feckless UN incompetence. Failed-state Somalia is rapidly becoming an HQ for Al Qaeda networking through pirates, including a "semi-autonomous" region known as "Puntland" on the tip of the Horn of Africa. Somali "political" types appear to be in cahoots with the pirates, and the witless morons of international patty-cake diplomacy [AKA Germans] are sending captured pirates to Kenya, where corrupt "politicians" and "judges" will auction the creepy terrorists back to Somalia to the highest bidders, sparking more piratical seizures to pay off the Kenyan "legal" system, infested with bigamists and drunks like Obama's feckless father.

Stop Making Sense, Say Postmodern Morons like BHO & the Billy Jeff

Randall Hoven in The American Thinker has a wonderful diagnosis of a world "where Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi are in charge, and Libya gets the UN Chair of the Human Rights Commission."

In his elegant example employing clarity and logic, Hoven gives a very short course on why and how the lunatics took over the asylum, with loony-in-chief apologizing to the Euroscum about The Marshall Plan and America's victory in The Cold War.

A must-read, as Larry King would say. Although Larry wouldn't or couldn't possibly understand it.

Sunspots Say: Global Warming Hoax at Risk of being Trumped by New Ice Age

James Marusek has a good take on the highly suspect guilt of humanity on the global climate. Anthropogenic GW may go the way of the Edsel and other one-hit wonders.

GOP Elephants Never Forget: Ohio is key.

Karl Rove famously was kept out of the McCain Campaign. McCain himself was the MSM candidate for Republican. Once he was nominated, the NYT famously turned on him with the Iseman scandal and subsequent garbage from Darfur Keller and Pinch the Grinch.

The most salient polling statistic in the '08 election is one the JournoList zampolit MSM has suppressed completely. In the final polling in Ohio, Obama won 40,000 fewer votes in '08 than JOHN KERRY WON IN '04.

This means that a large number of Ohioans never voted Republican in '08 and stayed home because the silly RINO at the top of the Repub ticket was an Obama-lite.

Karl Rove was rejected by the senile moron at the top of the ticket because the MSM hated Karl and his successful courting of The Silent Majority, which still exists at a rate of 35% conservative to 20% libtard, among a dozen polls taken over the last decade.

In other words, in '08 the US was still a center-right country, though neither candidate was close to the center, with McCain center-left at his best and only correct on Iraq.

Mousetrapped, the GOP lost when Veep-Candidate Palin was pilloried from pillar to post unfairly---and still is by certified perv Excitable Andy. Her family is under an MSM microscope while Obama's relative is being exported from Boston under a media blackout.

The JournoList band of zampolitsya batter any defectors or laggards and spew lies endlessly about FoxNEWS & the WSJ.

The rest of the media is in the hands of Democrats while Harry Reid says that income taxes are "voluntary."

Spanish Court Claims Jurisdiction in GWB Foreign Policy?

After 9/11, only Spain has suffered a major terrorist attack, and unlike the USA, responded with abject submission to the terrorists by electing a compliant socialist government a few days later which virtually declared unconditional surrender to Islamic terrorists, which now use Spain as a jumping-off point for EU terrorism.

Read The Wall Street Journal article linked above for the tissue of lies, cowardice, and the kangaroo nature of Spain's court system.

It's one thing to cower before international terrorism. It's quite another to try to stymie attempts to counter the Islamic terrorist threat.
