Another action packed weekend with a lot happening. Your humble blogger took an extended weekend so as to spend time with the family. And as we all know, “because a man that does not spend time with his family, can never be a real man”. (see here).
Now to the subject at hand and the action packed weekend. If there is one overriding theme of this weekend, it can be defined as NEO-MODERNIST EXPERIMENTS™ failing everywhere. And we are talking EPIC FAIL.
So let us recap. First we have the EPIC FAIL of TEAMFRANCIS and their suppression, or their attempted suppression (we will watch how this plays out) of Cardinal Robert Sarah’s Ad Orientem Appeal™ (Fr. Z’s ™).
If there is one overriding aspect of this FAILED NEO-MODERNIST LITURGICAL EXPERIMENT, it is the BLATANT DISHONESTY with which the status quo is being maintained. What I mean by this is the following: when it is pointed out to these TEAMFRANCIS folks that they are using a demonstratively faulty… bah, OBJECTIVELY FALSE translation of paragraph 299 of the 2000 GRIM to maintain the status quo, they simply ignore this information. (see here) They do not even acknowledge that these OBJECTIVE FACTS are in the public domain and that they are cognizant of this “new” situation (see here).
Not very professional, is it? But I digress…
The reason that this situation can be described as “new” is that these same TEAMFRANCIS folks most likely 1) did not read the 2000 GRIM, or 2) if they did, they did not understand what they were reading. This is the CHARITABLE position. There is also a 3), and that is this: they both read and understood paragraph 299 of the 2000 GRIM and are just ignoring the liturgical law of the Roman Catholic Church.
Summa summarum, by allowing this blatant FALSEHOOD with respect to cognizant misinterpretation of paragraph 299 of the 2000 GRIM and subsequent SUPPRESSION of the proper rubric to be exposed for all to see, TEAMFRANCIS is in fact allowing the Faithful to see that their IDEOLOGY is based on TRANSRATIONAL PREMISES. In this case, DISHONESTY. This not only undermines their NEO-MODENIST IDEOLOGY masquerading as RELIGION, but it simultaneously undermines the CREDIBILITY of the Catholic Church itself, which this band of NEO-MODENISTS are occupying presently.
Which brings me to another NEO-MODERNIST EXPERIMENT™ in the news lately, this time regarding the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution. In the post that I am republishing below, the author, Jim Quinn provides OBJECTIVE FACTS regarding the issue of homicide and gun ownership in the US. According the OBJECTIVE FACTS, the number of gun related homicides has DECREASED with the INCREASE of gun ownership in the US. If you don’t believe me, please review the lower chart in the below post.
Given the above OBJECTIVE REALITY, it is simply amazing that the POTUS and the entire TEAMBARACK are bent on confiscating the firearms of the US citizenry. The question that Mr. Quinn poses is as follows:
So, with homicides at a 25 year low and completely confined to the urban ghettos where young black men kill other young black men, we need new gun laws to restrict what white people can own?
Conclusing, just as with the “feigned ignorance” of TEAMFRANCIS with respect to paragraph 299 of the 2000 GRIM, TEAMBARACK is feigning ignorance with respect to the OBJECTIVE REALITY of gun ownership and homicide statistics in the United States. Both of these IDEOLOGICALLY
motivated driven groups are engaging in these “OBVIOUS FOR ALL TO SEE” disinformation campaigns due to the OBJECTIVE EPIC FAILURES that their IDEOLOGY has created. And both TEAMFRANCIS AND TEAMBARACK share the same IDEOLOGY. At its ROOT, this IDEOLOGY is NEO-MODERNIST, which means that it is TRANSRATIONAL. And it is this TRANSRATIONAL nature of NEO-MODENISM that is the ROOT CAUSE underlying this EPIC FAIL.
Once again, here is John Lamont with the pertinent observation (with comment) (see here):
The key to the neomodernist capture of power is however also the reason for their failure to sustain a religious (and political) culture. Neomodernism is not like Protestantism (or conservatism), which contains ideas with a positive content as well as being a rejection of Catholicism. These ideas – justification by faith, and the like – are not correct, but they say something substantial, and have an appeal that can give rise to an important movement. Neomodernism, however, on a religious (and political) level is a purely negative thesis. As a result it has no attractive force of its own, and ecclesiastical (and governmental) structures that fall into its grip eventually die away – a process now visible all over the world. (see here – and sorry about the source)
But if you are an IDEOLOG like the respective members of both TEAMFRANCIS and TEAMBARACK, with your entire world view, and more specifically your life’s work being shown as a FRAUD for all to see, you really have no choice. If the wise old adage says that ‘honesty is the best policy”, you adopt a paraphrased NEO-MODERNIST version of this truism, namely:
Dishonesty is the ONLY policy.
And hope for the best.
Today’s headline from that other NEO-MODERNIST EXPERIMENT™ known as the FrancisEconomy in Venezuela, is as follows:
Venezuelan shoppers flock across border to Colombia
Thousands of Venezuelans streamed into neighboring Colombia on Sunday to take advantage of a temporary opening of the border to buy food and medicine unavailable at home in their country’s collapsing economy. (read the rest here)
FOR THE RECORD (see here)
“Not A White Problem”
The statistics in the chart below are representative of every Democrat controlled urban shithole city in America. Obama and his anti-gun activist minions are peddling a false narrative about guns because they understand most Americans are dumber than a sack of hammers and easily manipulated by propaganda. Obama uses every high profile shooting to blame guns, in order to deflect people from seeing the truth. And the truth is guns are not a problem in white America.
It’s only a problem in the urban ghettos with the toughest gun laws run by Democrat mayors and city councils. Chicago is a perfect example of Obama ignoring the real problem. Fifty years of welfare programs and treating black people like victims has created a dysfunctional system leading to hopelessness, crime, and perpetual poverty. Chicago is 32% white, but they commit only 3.5% of the murders. Over 96% of the murders are committed by non-whites. Essentially, it is young black men murdering other black men. White people are not in the equation and are not part of the problem. It’s a black problem framed as a gun problem by Obama and his lying apparatchiks.
There are approximately 8,000 gun related homicides annually in the U.S. The vast majority occur in the urban ghettos and are committed by blacks and hispanics against other blacks and hispanics. They use illegally acquired guns, so more gun laws will do nothing. Their lawless culture, requiring no personal responsibility by those who father children, creates the dysfunction and crime. The urban ghetto kill zones all have the same thing in common – run by liberal Democrats for decades, with poverty created by their welfare policies, dreadful public schools, and a black population who don’t work and take no personal responsibility for their lives or their children.
Here are the murders by city for a sampling of these shitholes:
- Los Angeles – 587
- Chicago – 508
- NYC – 333
- Detroit – 316
- Phila – 248
- Baltimore – 233
- New Orleans – 150
- Indianapolis – 129
- Memphis – 124
- St. Louis – 120
- Newark -112
- Milwaukee – 104
- Washington DC – 103
There are dozens of other shitholes like Camden, Kansas City, Atlanta, Oakland, Pittsburgh, and Miami with extremely high murder rates, and in every case more than 90% are committed by non-whites. Why don’t you hear Obama giving speeches about black communities policing themselves and taking responsibility for the crime, drugs and murder in their neighborhoods? He has no problem with proclamations about white people clinging to their guns in middle America where there are virtually no murders.
The entire gun narrative peddled by liberals is false. The crime rate has been falling for 25 years. There were 24,703 murders in 1991 when the population was 253 million. Murders in 2014 totaled 14,249 with a population of 317 million. The willfully ignorant American public completely buys the falsehoods presented by Obama and believes murders and crime are skyrocketing.
Today, the national crime rate is about half of what it was at its height in 1991. Violent crime has fallen by 51 percent since 1991, and property crime by 43 percent. In 2013 the violent crime rate was the lowest since 1970. And this holds true for unreported crimes as well. According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, since 1993 the rate of violent crime has declined from 79.8 to 23.2 victimizations per 1,000 people.
So, with homicides at a 25 year low and completely confined to the urban ghettos where young black men kill other young black men, we need new gun laws to restrict what white people can own? It makes you wonder. Why has the government militarized local police forces across the country in white communities when crime and murder is virtually non-existent in those communities? Why is Obama and his liberal nazi hordes trying to ban any gun capable of providing defense against a tyrannical government? Why has this become a war on whites when it is solely a black problem? It’s almost as if the government is treating working class whites with guns as the enemy. I wonder.
