Fidel Castro Dead, Good Riddance

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 1 day ago

I see that the evil despot Fidel Castro is dead.  Good riddance.  I’ll toast his demise with a good glass of wine tonight.  He is in hell now, an appropriate place for him to spend eternity.

Like all communist dictators, he enriched and engorged himself and his cronies while the poor people of Cuba starved to death and perished in filthy hospitals.  The people of Cuba couldn’t enjoy the God-given right of self determination and worship as they saw fit, and couldn’t work without having to give the majority of it to the awful men who ruled over them.  It’s fitting that the only two world “leaders” who mourned Castro’s death are the awful Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau.

Donald Trump does much better, and Ted Cruz spews venom at the memory of Castro.  I grew up with the Castro regime, but it you’re young and don’t know about the man, you can learn all you need to know about him to interpret the rest of his life and work in three words.  Armas para que?

The Cuban revolution was no American one, and Castro’s embracing of communism after convincing the world he was a freedom fighter should remind all who can think of the “fool me once” adage.

As should Castro’s pointed question when making his case that the people no longer had legitimate need of guns, and that his administration should be the only ones wielding a monopoly of violence.

Read the rest of David’s piece for an eye opener concerning a previous position take by Guns Magazine.  David also points out that “Castro moved against private gun ownership the second day he was in power. He sent his thugs throughout the island using the gun registry lists — compiled by the preceding Batista regime — to confiscate the people’s firearms.”

Very well.  That places him squarely in the camp with ISIS and the Northeastern and West Coast democrats.

Soros Set On Bending Creation To His Will

BY Herschel Smith
3 weeks ago

David Codrea:

Incumbent Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, target of the Obama Justice Department for his stand against the administration’s goal of culturally terraforming the Republic through illegal “immigration,” has been defeated in his bid for reelection by challenger Paul Penzone. Actually, it might be more accurate to say Arpaio was defeated by “dual citizen” Hungarian-American George Soros.

That’s because globalist billionaire Soros, a proponent of reshaping the world to his will, spent $2M on ads and mailers to defeat Arpaio …

Read the rest here.  I have two thoughts.  First of all, Soros is a wicked man who has destroyed the currencies of entire nations in order to turn a profit.  He meddles in the affairs of countries like a cat playing with a mouse, and he ought to be arrested for his criminality.  Or if his actions aren’t criminal, they should be.  There is no sympathy for Soros here, and I’ll celebrate with a glass of good wine the day he passes from here to hell when he breathes his last breath.

But in addition to blaming Soros, I blame the voters who don’t know enough or don’t care to know what they’re doing (or prefer wicked government).  We get the government we ask for, and throwing out a man who is arguably the best Sheriff in America (but Sheriff Chuck Wright is a pretty stand-up guy too) is not only stupid but will bear long term consequences.  Maricopa County might just regret this decision, and I strongly suspect they will.  How sad for you.

Facebook “Fake” News Censorship And Comet Ping Pong

BY Herschel Smith
3 weeks, 1 day ago

Business Insider:

Facebook swayed the presidential election — but he acknowledged that the social networking site has work to do when it comes to hoaxes on the platform.

The Facebook CEO wrote a post on his page Saturday regarding the site’s role in this year’s election after people began blaming Facebook for allowing fake news to be distributed on the site, perhaps contributing to Donald Trump’s surprising victory.

Speaking at the Techonomy conference on Thursday, Zuckerberg initially dismissed the accusations.

“Personally, I think the idea that fake news on Facebook, it’s a very small amount of the content, influenced the election in any way is a pretty crazy idea,” he said.

But after continued backlash, Zuckerberg took to Facebook to share his thoughts on the site’s role in disseminating news, writing that the company will “continue to work on this to improve further” but must do so cautiously in order to avoid bias. Identifying what’s true and what’s not is “complicated,” he said, and even mainstream news can get it wrong sometimes.

An example of the fake news he’s talking about might be what folks have learned of Comet Ping Pong In Washington, D.C. over the last couple of weeks.  If you believe that there is something nefarious going on, you’ve been lampooned in this article.

The 2016 presidential campaign is finally, mercifully, nearing its completion, but there’s still time for a little more absurdity. Comet Ping Pong, a pizzeria in the Washington DC neighborhood of Chevy Chase, is much more than a pizzeria. It’s the center of a Clinton-operated sex ring, according to alt-right conspiracy theorists on Reddit, 4Chan, and across the rest of the internet.

The title of the article is “Internet Crazies Think this DC Pizzeria Is The Center Of A Clinton Sex Ring.”  Crazy, you are.  Not just that, you’re an internet crazy.  I suppose that’s worse, but I’m not sure.

Of course, there is this with which to contend.  One might ask what kind of “family friendly” pizzeria (as it’s advertised) has drag shows (Caution: NSFW).

And remember that Mark Zuckerberg wants to figure out what’s true and fake news so they can censor it from Facebook.  I no longer have a Facebook account, having deleted it long ago.

Presidential Election Post-Mortem

BY Herschel Smith
3 weeks, 5 days ago

Election night was an interesting thing, yes?  It was an enlightening thing to watch neocons George Will and Charles Krauthammer lament the passing of true conservatism, as if conservatism = corporatism.  The American worker is smart enough to know that he is competing with workers who don’t live under the same EPA and OSHA regulations as he does, and even a hit dog is smart enough to know if you accidentally or intentionally kicked him.  The workers are smarter than the neocons give them credit (another way of saying it is that Will and Krauthammer’s disdain for the intelligence level of the American worker is on full display by even suggesting that they don’t understand what true conservatism is).  It was also a wonderful thing to see the collectivists weep.

My former Marine Daniel was out and about today and was listening to liberals wail on the uneducated, mean Christians who voted for Trump.  Mean, we are.  Just mean.  Mean enough that this person has never met anybody meaner than Christians.  Daniel interrupted and said, “You know, that’s funny.  The meanest people I’ve ever met were Iraqi and Syrian Muslims.  Have you ever seen the body of a man who was literally skinned while he was still alive?”  The collectivists are smarter than we are, know more than we do, are educated beyond comprehension, want to take our money, want to redistribute it according to their own dictates, tell us where to live, how to live, what do to, where to do it, and what to think.  And Christians are the ones being mean.  In reality, Christians see the government as no more a legitimate power to enact tyrannical laws than Russia has a right to boss the Ukrainians around.

Many collectivists, and even some on the right, are too stolid to understand that as long as you don’t want to murder infants or follow my grandchildren into the bathroom, if you want the free exercise of your legitimate rights, I’m your best friend and biggest ally, because being Christian is the exact antithesis of being a statist.  If you want small government, we’re your folk.  Christians voted for Trump because of the horror of the alternative.  The MSM media couldn’t come to grips with this, and their own disdain for religious voters was on full display in their assumption that social issues exclusively define the religious right.  Trump voters of all stripes were insulted on election night, and yet the election was still a rebuke to political correctness, government run health care, meddling in the affairs of other nations, and corruption from the highest levels of government to the lowest. My son Joseph in Travis County, Texas, tells me that the progressives there are savaging Trump voters as ignorant hillbillies. Well, if it takes courses in the liberal arts to be smart, I’ll stick with my differential equations any day. As to being a hillbilly, some of the best men I know could be identified as such. I consider it an honor to be named among them.

The election of Donald J. Trump to the office of president of the U.S. is a good thing compared to the only other alternative.  I claimed that it would be, and it will be.  Let’s rehearse for a moment what we could have been facing.

First of all, I have linked and commented on the evils of The Clinton Foundation, John Podesta and his ring of pedophiles, and how the Clinton’s are at the epicenter of this abominable, wicked cabal.  But just for good measure, I’ll do it again.  This Reddit link documents the wickedness of The Clinton Foundation, this Reddit link documents the first of many such threads at Reddit on Podesta and his ring of child rapists, and this Reddit link follows up the initial thread with more details concerning the expanse of this child molestation.

It’s awful reading, and if the country had a soul left we would march on their homes, remove them and hang them all in the public square.  Another one of the many things we learned in this election is that the MSM is way past dead, and a few tens of thousands of Redditors with computers, video cameras, time and motivation, can do a better job of journalism and investigation that the MSM and the FBI put together.  They can literally take down the most powerful and corrupt political machine in world history, the Clinton Foundation.

But it isn’t just the illegalities and immoralities associated with this horrible reality that you should consider.  Take for example this talk that Hillary gave not too long ago.

Let me explain what she’s saying to the crowd in pseudo-coded language so that bored listeners won’t understand it.  She has gone on record saying she will destroy the SCOTUS decision in Citizens United in order to control the narrative.  She believes your views must change.  They must change.  It isn’t just your practices or your actions.  Your very views must change.  To wit, she will use the power of the law to force compliance with her views.

This includes churches.  She has no problem forcing churches to provide abortion coverage in health care, and presumably under the fairness doctrine she would have no problem forcing the church to hire atheists or Planned Parenthood operatives.  After all, everyone deserves equal time, even at church.  Presumably also, blogs and alternative media would face the same sort of requirements under the fairness doctrine, which the FCC has hinted at for quite some time now.  I had strongly considered simply shutting down this web site if such things came to pass.  I don’t need it.  I won’t give equal time to gun controllers.  Were preachers prepared to shut up about things with which they disagree?  Or perhaps go to prison?  Were blogs, news outlets and commenters prepared to give equal time to detractors?

Finally in this truncated list of awful things, Hillary would have backed it all up with multiple SCOTUS appointments to firmly ensconce this all into legal precedent.  The doctrine of stare decisis would have been the ammunition the progressive senators needed to keep out any justices who would reverse such awful rulings.

This isn’t all the damage she could have done.  She would have gone after semi-automatic weapons, enacted a magazine ban, required licensure for ammunition purchases, forbid person-to-person sales, and the list goes on.

But as I said before, electing Trump isn’t the end of our problems.  We are still a nation whose economic system is based entirely on debt, with unfunded liabilities large enough to sink the entire world economy, and a nation deeply divided over ideology.  Half of the nation looked at Hillary’s predation, corruption, pedophilia and vulgarity and decided to vote for her anyway.  Let that wash over you again.  Half of the country is committed to communism, and doesn’t care if that means killing a few or more people or the election of corrupt leaders.

I find my world and life view in the Scriptures, others elsewhere.  But make no mistake about it, your worldview dictates how you see things.  It colors your world like lenses change your perception.  You may think your right to own weapons emanates from the second amendment.  I do not and couldn’t possibly care less about this amendment except as it pertains to being a covenant, the violation of which is grounds for permanent separation.  The progressives think that a piece of paper defines my rights, and that they can change it as they see fit to conform to their plans for social engineering.

And as regards to the constitution, I find it somewhere between slightly amusing and pitiful that there are those who talk of a constitutional convention, or even a complete rewrite of said document, as amelioration for the tyranny of recent years – as if a new document can persuade, coerce or compel men who haven’t followed it in the past to follow it in the future.

The problem isn’t with the constitution, it isn’t with the men who wrote it, and it isn’t with the difficulty of forging a new agreement or covenant.  John Adams said “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  In the main, this is no longer a moral and religious nation.

And to quote a former friend and pastor, “The heart of the problem is the problem with the heart.”  That won’t be corrected by new documents, new agreements, or new politicians.  It needs a different remedy.  With all due respect to Donald Trump and his finely tuned political sensibilities, jobs for everyone won’t fix our problems.  Cambodians had jobs at the height of the killing fields under Pol Pot’s regime.  Until the ideological divide is repaired, there will be no peace.  America is too divided to be at peace.

But there is much to be gained from having been through this exercise.  First of all, we have more time, and will have a supreme court that to a greater degree will recognize our liberties more than if Hillary had been elected.  Second, this has been a hair-burning, gut-wrenching drill.  How did you perform?  Do you have enough guns and ammunition?  Do you have only range ammunition or do you have fighting rounds too (M855 for your long guns and PD rounds for your handguns)?  How much have you trained recently?

Do you have enough food prepared and put away, and enough water or purification capabilities?  Have you had the necessary conversations with neighbors and made plans with them yet?  How about fungible cash on hand?  I recently moved out of a larger city into a much smaller community about a year and a half ago, and I have made effort to learn the individuals, learn their likes and dislikes, and even learn something about the world and life views of each of them so that when the time comes, I know what I need to about the people around me.

It was worth doing whatever you could to prevent the demon-worshiper and her band of occultists and child rapists from becoming even more powerful, even if the new president does absolutely nothing of import and fulfills none of his promises.  But the drill itself was difficult because it was real.  It just didn’t end as badly as it could have.

I appreciate having the time to prepare better.  I intend to use it wisely.

Open Letter To The Department Of Justice, The Federal Bureau Of Investigation And The NYPD

BY Herschel Smith
4 weeks, 1 day ago

So much for the whispers about the good people at the FBI and the NYPD finally speaking out for justice and upholding the law, the sanctity of their oaths, how seriously they take it, and all of that other claptrap.  You’ve heard the whispers in the great unwashed land where the metro doesn’t run, haven’t you?

Your cowardly leader, Mr. Comey, has stated that they did the impossible, reading more than half a million emails in eight days.  Nothing to see here, move along folks.  Perhaps he’s thinking that this will all go away and he can salvage some sort of life after this.  Or that you can.

He can’t, and you can’t.  You see, little children have been abused, their lives are at stake, their souls cry out for protection and justice.  These words will weigh heavily on you.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea (Matt 18:6, KJV).

You know what’s been going on.  We all do.  Children have been kidnapped, they are held against their will, and they have been sexually abused by the forces of darkness.  You have a mountain of evidence of it, and you know it to be true.

But you won’t just continue with your lives after this is over.  Oh, I know that there is still some good will out there.

Dear FBI Employees: we know that this isn’t your fault.  You found “overwhelming evidence” of corruption, enough to press many charges, yet Obama forced your corrupt bosses to let her go.  Now is your opportunity to step up and go public with the true story.  The future of America is at stake.

But see, I think it is your fault.  You are complicit if you do nothing, and the lawyers at the DoJ are officers of the court.  They should be aggressively pursuing justice.  But justice won’t come in time for those little boys and girls who scream by day and cry by night.  And what remains of the little bit of good will out there for you will evaporate overnight.

It only gets darker from here on.  You will never forget these things.  You won’t be able to shake them.  You won’t be able to look people in the eye again, you won’t be able to trust even your own spouse, because you know oaths and vows mean nothing if yours doesn’t.  You will run from shadows, fear the night, and dread the day.

God will turn you over to the evil one, and demons will terrorize your sleep while you hear the screams and cries of the little ones during the day.  You will raise coffee to your lips trying to shake the fitful sleep, and you will forget that you have a cup in your hand.

Your family will not prosper to the third and fourth generations, and evil will be upon your world.  You may as well inscribe Ichabod on your doorposts, because you will rue the day you were born.

Hillary Clinton, Pedophile And Child Kidnapping Ring, And Endorsement Of Trump

BY Herschel Smith
1 month ago

Unfortunately this has been a long time coming and there is water over the dam.  I have a history on the issue of Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and this election that readers may remember, and why I have changed my position needs some explaining.  So let’s get right to it.

Six months ago I bid farewell to politics.  It had nothing whatsoever to do with Trump or his moral indiscretions.  It had everything to do with the eviction of Christian thought from the GOP.  The alt-right is welcome in the GOP, I am not.  The obscene pervert Milo is a friend of the current staple of politics on the right, mine has gone the way of the Dodo bird.  This election cycle has managed to do what the progressives couldn’t do in a hundred years, i.e., separate Christians from any party at all and relegate our views to the trash heap of history, at least, as far as the eye can see, notwithstanding a sovereign God who rules all things and can revive the country if He chooses to.  I would never vote for any other candidate of which I’m aware, but I couldn’t vote for Donald Trump.

Ted Cruz isn’t perfect, and I’ve cataloged some of my disagreements with him, including his idiotic opposition to sentencing reform for drug and non-violent offenders advocated by Mike Lee.  But I’ve also cataloged his leadership, described by Louie Gohmert, to kill the gang of eight bill.  You may have a lawless president, but you don’t have a gang of eight bill today because of Ted Cruz.  Furthermore, I know his world view because I share his Christian faith.  He isn’t perfect, and neither am I.  But he was my choice.

South Carolina broke my heart.  But she was only a harbinger for what was to come, and I knew it was over at that point.  I couldn’t bring myself to be involved in much of anything regarding politics.  But things have changed, and I now fully endorse Donald Trump for president.  The voter I heard from South Carolina after the primary made me think for a long while.  She said, “We ain’t electin’ no preacher, we are electin’ a president!”  We’ll call this woman “Ms. dumbass.”

Ms. Dumbass doesn’t understand, but it isn’t her fault, at least not completely.  I was never concerned about the character of Trump.  I was concerned about the lack of the world view associated with being a Christian.  I reject out of hand the obscene, stupid and insulting phrase “co-religionist.”  You don’t get to do a few things like a Muslim and declare yourself a Christian (John 3:8).  It involves a change of heart, and then quite out of your control and necessarily, a change of world and life view over time.

The typical Southern Baptist preacher today says a few nicey-nice things and then has a come to Jesus moment, and then the congregants put on their idiotic costumes and cheers for their favorite band of perverts and criminals giving each other concussions.  Contra this, Rousas J. Rushdoony has said that the place for both theology and philosophy is in the pulpit.  The notion that God is deaf, dumb and mute when it comes to criminal justice, monetary policy, state law, waging war, art, science and music is ridiculous.  Constructing a consistent, holistic world and life view takes a lifetime.  Ms. Dumbass had divorced her faith from her worldview because she hasn’t been taught.  Much of the blame for where we are today lies with ignorant preaching.

Donald Trump may not have a consistent world and life view, or one that comports with my own in every way.  But the expulsion of such a world view from the GOP isn’t his fault.  Nor is it the fault of the establishment.  The voters put us squarely where we are.  Donald Trump isn’t a solution to the problem since he didn’t cause it.  Ms. Dumbass cannot fix it because she is too stupid and ignorant.  Ignorant because she hasn’t been taught, stupid because she opens her mouth in her ignorance.

But what Mr. Trump can indeed do is serve as justice and retribution for the evil and savagery inside the cabal inhabited by the Clintons and their ilk.  I have studied over time the evil, wickedness and designs for destruction that controls their every thought and action.  Take for instance this reddit thread on one Podesta email exchange on “spirit cooking” (h/t to my second son Joseph).  No, he isn’t having dinner with someone.  Read the thread and watch the video on what spirit cooking is.  These guys are Satanists into the occult.  This is one of hundreds of such threads put together by the “autists” at reddit and 4chan.  When is the bomb going to drop?  Is has been for four or five months now.  The MSM won’t cover it.

And now let’s get to one of the worst issues we could imagine (I truly hate to send you to things like this – these people are sickening and disgusting).  Up until today when my oldest son Joshua sent me this thread, I had doubted the implications of the Clinton’s involvement in a kidnapping and pedophilia ring.  Not any more.  Read this discussion thread at reddit (again, I’m sorry to send you to gross things like this, but the autistics at reddit are doing everyone’s job for them).  No one else will cover this sort of thing because it’s too dark and wicked.

They have connected a convicted child abductor who was caught stealing children from Haiti to the Clintons.  There is way, way more than this.  For example, there is this.

Hi John,

The realtor found a handkerchief (I think it has a map that seems pizza-related. Is it yorus? They can send it if you want. I know you’re busy, so feel free not to respond if it’s not yours or you don’t want it.


A pizza related map on a handkerchief.  Who writes emails like that?  So the redditors tear off into the word “pizza” and show fairly conclusively that it refers to pedophilia.  No wonder Haiti’s prime minister referred to sex trafficking in this video.

Folks, I have over 4 Gigabytes of emails in my inbox.  I don’t ever delete anything.  I’ve been exchanging email at work for 35 years.  I’ve never written anything like a “pizza related map on a handkerchief.”  Moreover, if I did, my manager would have me sent to for-cause drug testing to see if I was fit for duty.  Who writes things like this?  No one.  No one does, unless you’re trying to hide something.

The Clinton’s are at the epicenter of a Satanic cabal that sells influence for money, exchanges power for power, sells children, exploits the weakest among us, abuses people, sexually molests imprisoned children, engages in the occult, and wants a world without borders with no remaining vestiges of sovereignty or liberty.  God uses all sorts of things to judge the wicked, and Donald Trump may very well be that judgment upon His enemies, at least for the moment.  In the end they will suffer eternally.

This has been a long, hard road for me, and I don’t need any guff from readers about why it took me so long.  My world and life view constrains my conscience, and I am told to “take every thought captive” for Christ.  But in this case my conscience is clear.  Hillary Clinton cannot be president.  Or at least, I must do what I can to prevent that from happening, and prepare for the worst if it does.  To be sure, Hillary will be death to gun rights and other such liberties, but don’t see those liberties in a vacuum.  She will be death to them because of her consistent world view, one that destroys, hates and devours at the behest of the evil one.  Lucifer whispers in her ear.

Hillary Clinton’s Promises On Gun Control

BY Herschel Smith
1 month ago

Washington Examiner:

“When I think about keeping Americans safe, obviously I think about terrorism,” Clinton said at a campaign event in Sanford, Fla. “But I also want to protect Americans from the epidemic of gun violence that is stalking our country.”

“I cannot come to Sanford without talking about Trayvon Martin,” she continued. “It’s heartbreaking that this young man all he did was go to a cornerstone, bought a pack of Skittles and walked back home in the rain. And his life was cut short.”

“Thirty-three thousand people a year die from guns and we’ve got to do a better job, my friends,” she said. “You see, I believe we have a fundamental human — even a moral obligation — to protect our children no matter who they are or what zip code they live in. We have a moral obligation to reduce gun violence and that will require us to stand up against systemic racism and promote justice and equality and criminal justice reform.”

“Something is wrong when young people, just starting their lives are dying. Something is wrong when so many parents live in fear that their child will be hurt or killed going to the movies, sitting in a first grade classroom, attending a Bible study, the list goes on. This has nothing to do with the Second Amendment and responsible gun owners,” Clinton added, referencing several recent high profile mass shooting events.

[ … ]

“But I’m looking at violence broadly,” she added. “It’s also why I’ve advocated gun-safety reform, like comprehensive background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, closing the online loophole — because, you know, it’s not only terrorists we need to be worried about.”

How awful that poor Trayvon died for skittles.  And it’s sure a shame that he couldn’t go to that next Bible study.  I’m sure it was on his calendar.

As for Hillary, that’s not all she has promised, but it’s a taste.  She wants a renewed “assault weapons” ban, registration of ammunition buyers, a limit on ammunition purchases, and a host of other things that will infringe on your liberties.

She has the support of people like Pat Toomey, Jeff Flake, Kelly Ayotte, and others.  She will have what she wants.  And she will also likely attempt to federalize local and state police.  Unlike the gargoyles, pit vipers and demons that inhabit the GOP, when she says what she will do, you can believe her.

Prepare now.  In fact, it may already be too late.
