RAPID RESPONSE (Archives)...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section.  It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours.  Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction.  Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective.  But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active.  That's all I promise.

ON THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING IGNORANT

Thanks in part to the failure of our schools and of parenting over the last 40 years, a massive and increasing number of our people are uninformed.  But worse yet, they are "ignorant": not just lacking knowledge but consciously refusing to be open to information and knowledge.  As a result, they "don't know what they don't know"...and they don't care.  This is a critical danger to themselves and to any society.
Enter the current world of Islam, a noble Religion that is being taken over by the active ignorance of the fundamentalists and by the passive and intimidated posture of all the other Muslims.
An excellent study and statement on this subject can be found in the current edition of National Catholic Register (Nov. 29-Dec.12, p1) in an "In Person" interview with Islam scholar Jesuit Father Samir Khalil Samir.

And that brings up another subject: THE IMPORTANCE OF CROSS-READING": that is, reading the same subject in two or three different sources.  I learned the merits of that approach long ago in my learning, and long before it became necessary to avoid the misinformation, distortions and outright lies that can be found in any one source today.
So, as applied to my comments on the movie "Spotlight", please read an excellent review in the same National Catholic Register (Arts and Entertainment, pB5). 

For your own sake, for that of your family and for Society at large:
DON'T BE IGNORANT!

"SPOTLIGHT"

Excellent in every respect...as a movie, though sad and demoralizing as a reflection on the worst of human nature. 
'"Judgment is Mine.  I shall repay", sayeth the Lord". (Romans).

Meanwhile, this grave injury to the Catholic Church did not end with the story.  At an event which I attended in disbelief, Cardinal Bernard Law was honored before his exile to Rome at a massive ceremony in St. Patrick's Cathedral in Norwich, Ct. attended by nearly 80 Bishops and other clergy from throughout the nation.
I have not lived a sheltered life and thus had never been scandalized...until I witnessed that event.

And in Rome, the Cardinal is hardly wearing sackcloth and ashes.

What else can I say and continue to act as a Christian?

THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE, THE GAME AND ITS SUPPORTERS.

Something sinister seems to be taking place here, or at least is becoming known. Football has always been a rough and potentially dangerous game, a collision sport - as distinguished for example from Rugby, a contact sport.

That's why I prevented my three sturdy sons from playing football, while heavily engaged in soccer, wrestling and rugby.

Now this game at the higher levels seems to have become more brutal, even more designed to cause physical injury - and without the intervention of coaches or referees or owners. Or is it with some encouragement, all designed to increase the income from these jousts.  There is the increasing number of incidents on the field which can only be called reckless, or even criminal. There is the recent article, in Sports Illustrated I believe, reporting that teams look anxiously at the New England Patriots for the next "trick". There is the recent report in the WSJ: "The Doctor The NFL Tried To Silence", by Jeanne Marie Laskas (Wednesday Nov. 25, 2015, Sports, D6. And there are many others in the last two years in the same vein.

What will it take to motivate (or coerce) the sports leaders and the businessmen in this field to clean up their act? And soon, for lives and life are at stake.

You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.

Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen

On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded

The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'

Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say

Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS,

not Happy Holiday!

Please, all Christians join together and

wish everyone you meet

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Christ is The Reason' for the Christ-mas Season!

A German's View on Islam ! A Must Read 

A German's View on Islam - worth reading.  This is one of the best explanations of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read.

The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.    A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and  estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools.

So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come.' 'My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.' 

 'We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is a religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.' 'The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march.  It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout  Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

''The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and  extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. ''The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.

And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?   'History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world Will have begun.' 'Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.'  

 'Now Islamic prayers have been introduced in Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in  Ottawa,  too, while the Lord's Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?). The  Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the  fanatics move in .''In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation's shores.'

 'In the U. K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of "no-go" zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not  intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.'   'As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts - the fanatics who threaten our way of life.'

Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. Extend yourself a bit and send this on. Let us hope that thousands world-wide read this, think about it, and send it on before it's too late, and we are silenced because we were silent!!

LOOK IT UP...

The following is a pot pourri of important subjects intelligently discussed in recent editions of the Wall Street Journal and The Day.  Sorry, no specific citations.  Just too busy.
  1. PARIS.  Now let's see if President Obama is educable, or if he is just a displaced "community organizer".
  2. ObamaCare continues to unwind.  See articles on the "Cadillac Tax" and on the Collapse of Co-Ops.
  3. On Guns and People. "A Nation of Psychos May Need Militias: police auxiliaries comprising hundreds of thousands of carefully chosen armed civilian volunteers; by Chris Powell, in The Day recently.
  4. On Our Public Schools: A forty year disaster, made possible by the idiotic support of their victims. "A Tale of Two Schools, One Building"; "Why Students Need To Sit Up And Pay Attention". See also my never-ending section on this web-site entitled "Public School Politics".  Read it and weep.
  5. Hillary: On Top of Everything Else, a Chameleon. "Clinton Turns Against Charters"; "Fred Thompson's Finest Role".
  6. "The GOP Soul: What Is A Conservative?", NY Times Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015, pA1.

PARIS, FRIDAY - NOVEMBER 13, 2015.

The purpose of Terrorism is Fear, Panic, Immobilization, and Remembrance.
"9/11" used the call numbers for an emergency: 911.
Yesterday, Friday the Thirteenth, will certainly be remembered...not only for the date and the carnage.  It will be remembered as the new
December 7, 1941 of the Western World.  And far from fear, panic and immobilization, it will be the first shot of World War lll, between Western Civilization and the Muslim World.

The only thing that can prevent this now, as I have been saying for a long time, is for the moderate Muslims (I'm told that there are some) to physically destroy the fanatics in their midst. And very soon! They have lost their cowardly middle ground.

One more thing.  A recent "poll" reported that "more Americans are more worried about guns than about terrorism".  Better repeat that poll now. And better realize that, in addition to better diagnosing and treating the many mentally ill in our midst - and reporting those with violent tendencies - we all must be armed and prepared.  That is our world now. Accept it, or prepare for an early and violent departure.
