Problems With The Covid Vaccine: Why A Christian Should Have Problems With It

Herschel Smith · 20 Dec 2020 · 21 Comments

The "fact checkers" will tell you that there are no aborted baby parts being used in the the development or generation of the Covid vaccines.  This is the explanation Reuters gives. A Facebook video discussing the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine for COVID-19 has falsely claimed it contains tissue from an aborted human foetus. The video (here), broadcast live on Nov. 15, first shows a picture on a computer screen of the packaging for the AstraZeneca-developed COVID-19 vaccine ChAdOx1-S, also…… [read more]

Teach Your Children Not To Muzzle Flag Other People

Around the 4 second mark.  That rifle is pointing everywhere but down.

If my son had muzzle flagged somebody like that in the MC, he would have been sent to the “room of pain.” Oh, and it would be best not to drop your rifle. Keep better control over it.

Is anyone surprised that Texas police would oppose the exercise of God-given rights without their approval?

Wheaton College Goes Mad

BY Herschel Smith

This will go down as one of the most stupid, cowardly acts in the annals of “wokeness.”

In his emailed statement, Ryken said the term “savage” is a pejorative term that “has been used historically to dehumanize and mistreat indigenous peoples around the world. Any descriptions on our campus of people or people groups should reflect the full dignity of human beings made in the image of God.”

Ryken and other members of Wheaton leadership have received about a dozen comments about the plaque this school year from students and members of the campus community, said Joseph Moore, Wheaton’s director of marketing communications. He said the president released the statement because the plaque has been temporarily removed, and leadership wanted the campus community to “know about its review, rewording, and return.”

For those of you who know about the heroic actions of Jim Elliot and his missionaries, they were killed by the very group of savages to whom they went as missionaries.  Wheaton College is embarrassed at the truth.

They weren’t white supremacists, they were Christ supremacists.”

We covered this.  Neither is “better.”  I prefer KeyMod.  Buy whichever you want.

Stay Out Of Conflict With Russia

BY Herschel Smith

Michael Yon.

United States must stay out. This is not our war. We are not global 911.

This is a strategic trap. Reserve our force for CCP.

My estimation: Russia will attack under the upcoming Comanche Moon — if weather is clear.

Truth spoken.  This isn’t our conflict.  We have no compelling interest in engagement.  If we go to war with Russian troops, unprepared, untrained, fat boys and girls will come home on body bags.

On the other hand, the DoD has driven most patriots out of the military (save the USMC).  It would be the sons and daughters of “woke” parents who perish.

I’m glad my son is out of the Marine Corps.  He is too.

We won’t be “saving” our troops for China or anyone else.  China will take Taiwan and the U.S. won’t lift a finger to stop it.

Supreme Court On Religious Freedom

BY Herschel Smith

PJM.

“Applicants are likely to succeed on the merits of their free exercise claim; they are irreparably harmed by the loss of free exercise rights ‘for even minimal periods of time’; andthe State has not shown that ‘public health would be imperiled’ by employing less restrictive measures,” the Supreme Court ruled. “Accordingly, applicants are entitled to an injunction pending appeal.”

[ … ]

… “even if the government withdraws or modifies a COVID restriction in the course of litigation, that does not necessarily moot the case. And so long as a case is not moot, litigants otherwise entitled to emergency injunctive relief remain entitled to such relief where the applicants ‘remain under a constant threat’ that government officials will use their power to reinstate the challenged restrictions.”

Whatever.  Even a blind squirrel finds a nut from time to time.  Any decision that doesn’t recognize the God-given right and duty of Christians to worship completely free from hindrance by the state is still weak.

The really interesting thing to me is this bit: ” … litigants otherwise entitled to emergency injunctive relief remain entitled to such relief where the applicants ‘remain under a constant threat’ that government officials will use their power to reinstate the challenged restrictions.”

And no, that wasn’t what the Supreme Court said when they dismissed the case of NY Rifle and Pistol Association against NY on the basis of removal of the restrictions on travel, thus making the claims moot.

Because rules are for little people, and consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.

Hiding Behind The Second Amendment?

Biden Adviser Richmond: Republicans Need to Stop Hiding Behind Second Amendment — It’s Not Meant for ‘Weapons of War’ [More]

The second amendment isn’t the source of anything for me.  The Almighty God of the Holy Scriptures grants the right and even duty of self defense and protection of my family, whether from criminals with badges or without.

I don’t hide anywhere you can see.  I find refuge under the wings of the Lord, whose pinions cover me from evildoers like you (Psalm 91:4).

And yes, I believe that, and yes, the Scriptures speak eternal truth.

Tactical Sharps 45-70 Carbine

BY Herschel Smith
4 days, 12 hours ago

Chris Costa is doing some cool stuff and with the recent focus on 45-70, revolvers, and now the Sharps carbine, and I like the direction of his channel.

I have to tell you.  I’ve never had more fun shooting than when I sighted in my muzzle loader a few months ago.  You build your own cartridge.  Men have done it for centuries.

But good Lord, you’d better clean (and clean, and clean) that muzzle loader, and soon after shooting it!

Depriving People Of Due Process

BY Herschel Smith
4 days, 22 hours ago

Via David Codrea, this report from Maryland involving an off-duty Pentagon Police Officer.

After they arrived the officers were approached by an off duty PFPA officer who stated that he had fired his service weapon at suspects, saying they fled after not obeying his commands when he confronted them for what he believed was an in-progress car break-in.

The two victims, Williams and Johnson, were transported to Prince George Hospital where they later died from gunshot wounds, the Takoma Park Police said.

In Tennessee versus Garner, the Supreme Court has said that people fleeing the scene (even if known that it was the scene of a crime, in the particular case, escaped inmates) cannot be subject to lethal force.

You cannot shoot people for fleeing.  It couldn’t be clearer.

Not that this man cared about due process, but the point is that by taking a life, you deprive that person of their due process rights.  You’ve become judge, jury and executioner.
