Good article defending Trump from guess who?…..the Liberal Press!
Point 1: The Press is unredeemable, Trump needs to fashion a doctrine of minimal contact with the Liberal side of the Press and speak only to those who are fair.
Point 2: Climate models are extremely complex and subject to much debate—there really is no certainty in the Liberals’ claims to this being settled science—it really is political. Some noteworthy quotes from important scientists are referenced in this article.
Point 3: From this article it is clear the climate-changers don’t like to be challenged and think they have the upper hand on the science—that actually is bad for a scientist to feel that way, after all, science claims it is supposed to be open to facts, except in this debate, when it may contradict their already solidified belief that man has contributed heavily to climate change.
Point 4: Trump should exercise the carpenter’s mantra: “measure twice, cut once”! Too much damage could be done if the climate change bandwagon is pursued the way these liberals want! Don’t make any sudden moves!
I know what this is…….it is RAMA! (Kidding of course!)
“Rendezvous With Rama” was a sci-fi novel by Arthur C. Clarke, written in 1973. A 30 mile long, cylindrical object, an alien craft, it entered the Solar System for awhile and eventually exited around the sun.
Earth astronauts rendezvous with it and explored its interior. One of the interesting things about the book was the idea of “reference frames”. There was no real north-south and east-west directions like we have on Earth. The sense of an “up” and “down” was also a problem in this “world” of Rama.
As the astronauts navigated the interior, one of the things they had to do was construct an arbitrary set of directions and make themselves think in those terms. That gave a sense of the everyday directional cues we take for granted in in our everyday movements. For me personally, that was the most interesting “minor” aspect of the story!
I read this as a teenager and reread it in middle-age. Did the author intend a “moral” aspect to some of this? I don’t know, but reading it now as opposed to my teenage years, that sense of disorientation which comes from the “directionless” environment, reminded me a bit of our society and its “moral” compass being lost. Our society is broken in many ways and the moral compass we once had through a Christian-oriented foundation, is eroded to the point of being just an artifact of the past.
Society’s problem is that true hope and meaning and purpose ultimately can only be gained by a relationship with God through Christ. Through Him that moral compass we have lost as a society can be reacquired! Christ is just waiting!
Liberal Worldview and the Apostle Paul
The fall of the liberal worldview, because of Donald trump’s destruction of Hillary Clinton, can be still heard. It won’t go quietly into the night as the salvage operation of their pitiful worldview continues.
I should have known better, but I flipped through the news sites last night and caught a bit of Rachel Maddow—a pitiful display of commentary ensued—and after a few moments I had to depart!
Her main points were attempts to revive the old “Republicans = support of the KKK” mumbo-jumbo, even going back to Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms early days, trying to establish some kind of historical continuity with the KKK up to the present day.
Is this the best the liberals can do? On CNN a few days after the election, commentator Van Jones called the election results a “white lash”—obviously racist (using their own definitions). Belligerent, lecturing, overbearing, he made himself look ridiculous.
Not much looking into the mirror for this bunch, not much philosophical reflection for this bunch, not much reflexive thinking about where they could be mistaken, but plenty of comments for the other side.
It reminded me last night after Maddow’s sad KKK display, that the liberals are going through what the Politburo of the former USSR went through when their experiment in communism came crashing down! That sound was heard and felt throughout the world and still is today! The communist worldview was so clear and exact that capitalism was such a threat to humanity, that the collapse of that very system which was supposed to lead the world to a better era, was absolutely Earth-shattering! How could communism be rejected when it was the correct view of things?
The poor liberal worldview—it was going to be what we needed whether we realized it or not! And they were going to force it upon us whether we wanted it or not! And that is because their little cabal had their own version of what life should be and any impediment, whether historical, religious wise or whatever, was by definition wrong, if it went against what “they” said!
They were wrong!
Now they are scrambling, looking for something to latch onto to gain a sense of hope for the future! Reminds me of the Apostle Paul in the Book of Acts Chp. 27. Heading to Rome on a ship, it encountered a storm and had to be beached. They had to make it to shore on their own, and the description of their attempts to gain land was this:
Paul commanded that “…they which could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land: And (then) the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship.”
So are the liberals attempts to regroup, they will grab at anything to survive. Their ship went down and all they have are small pieces to latch onto. Those pieces are sexism, racism, and whatever-else-ism.
Their worldview is shattered—their attitude is pathetic and pitiful—they can’t believe what happened—I don’t feel sorry for them in the least—but they can still change if they will look in a different direction for Truth—we’ll see on that last point!
