SPLC is a hate group linked to terrorism

A well-funded hate group called the Southern Poverty Law Center inspired a gunman named Floyd Corkins to commit an act of terror on a non profit organization called the Family Research Council. Corkins wanted to kill members of the FRC staff but was stopped by heroic African American building manager Leo Johnson. It is ironic that the SPLC claims to combat hate when it does so much to inflame it. The reason the SPLC inspires such acts of terrorism is that it paints people as monsters incapable of remediation. Unlike Christianity which condemns sinners but allows for redemption, the SPLC vilifies people it doesn't like while offering no plan for dialog with persons it deems to be undesirable.

The SPLC is not only well funded but is also well connected, being part of the government anti-terror bureaucracy despite having itself inspired an act of terror.

We sincerely hope the SPLC changes its ways and stops inducing people to commit acts of terrorism. By painting people it doesn't like as irredeemably evil, it will continue to pose a threat to the well-being of freedom-loving Americans like Leo Johnson. In the meantime, the government should not affiliate with an organization which has as its sole purpose to inspire hate.

WVW Teacher should not be Charged with a Felony

A 31 year old school teacher from Wyoming Valley West High School had sex with a 18 year old student. She should not be charged a felony because it's not as it would be if she were a man.

Gender equality is ideology. Gender difference is biology. No ordinary woman who is 31 years old can overpower an ordinary young man, aged 17 or 18. Therefore the sex was consensual, barring any blackmail. Moreover, the nature of the sex did not involve a dominant adult pursuing a submissive minor as would be the case with an adult man pursuing a female minor. Moreover, a young woman is more sensitive to bonding from sex than a young man, and it's physiologically more of a commitment for a young woman than for a young man.

Equivocating the relationship of an adult woman and male minor with an adult man and female minor is biologically incorrect.

While ideology is a noble effort to escape biology, we shouldn't totally dismiss biological considerations such as gender differences in our efforts to escape nature.

A misdemeanor would suffice as a legal punishment.

A Cacaphonous Judeo-Christmas

Christmas Songs written by Jews in the 20th century don't mix with Ancient Christian Christmas Carols.

One cold winter's day in the prime of Advent there funneled into the Osterhout Library an unknown women's group. Once settled, they proceeded to sing a wide array of Christmas carols in a large community room. A library is maybe the least tactful place to sing carols, but a contentious person would make an exception for the ladies because one so rarely hears live voices singing carols these days.

If there was a problem with the carols, it was how the ladies alternated back and forth between spiritual old songs and the somewhat cynical popular Christmas songs from the first half of the 20th century. The "sound" of songs like "A Holly Jolly Christmas" differs vastly from songs like "O Come, O Come Emmanuel." For this reason the ladies' performance was incongruous and kind of maddening to the aesthetically sensitive listener.

Christmas has changed over the past century. What made the holiday fun in pre-20th century days was the festive spirit. Song like Deck the Halls, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Here We Come A-Caroling, and Jingle Bells embody this spirit of merriment. But a far greater proportion of pre-20th century Christmas songs were religious hymns that conveyed spiritual sincerity. The most popular of these hymnal songs are:

O Come, O Come Emmanuel
Silent Night
Joy to the Word 
The First Noel
O Come All Ye Faithful
O Holy Night
Hark the Herald
We Three Kings
Away in a Manger
It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

The "sound" of these songs differs greatly from the pop Christmas songs of the 20th century, many of which were written by Jews who appreciated Christmas but who couldn't and wouldn't grasp any meaning in the holiday that went deeper than gooey nostalgia found in Irving Berlin's "White Christmas". Jews of 20th century yore appreciated Christmas, just not in the same way pre-20th century Christians did.

The setting for much modern Christmas music is department stores. It would be awkward to hear religious hymns while trying on clothes or buying toys for junior. It may be outright sacrilegious to do so.

Television commercials also play a big role in defining what a modern Christmas is, and these would obviously favor the Santa theme because they are selling stuff that Santa will bring.

The radio is the main source of most people's knowledge of Christmas music, and it follows the commercial trend. Aside from frequently playing the top ten worst Christmas songs, they play songs like these top ten as reported by ASCAP.

1. Winter Wonderland
2. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)
3. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
4. Sleigh Ride
5. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
6. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
7. White Christmas
8. Jingle Bell Rock
9. Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
10. Little Drummer Boy

Usually 1/3 to 1/2 of the top 25 songs in any given year are written and/or composed by Jews. The only two religious songs that creep in are the lamentable "Little Drummer Boy" and "Do You Hear What I Hear?". If any song epitomizes the aesthetic monstrosity of a Judeo-Christmas, it is the latter, which was written by couple consisting of a Jewish woman and Christian man. There is a theatrical coldness to it and a strained sincerity, as if it is something done merely for something doing it. It is a compromise that erases the best qualities from everyone.

But if most modern Christmas songs are aesthetically lamentable, then capitalism is proving that one doesn't need good aesthetics to survive. To make it in a capitalist society, you don't need to have good taste. You just need to find a way to use the market to make money. Rather than sincere flourishings of spirituality to coat a rough agricultural life or festive crescendos to end a hard year's work, we use less sincere pop jingles to accompany our less austere jobs.

There's no reason to consult spiritual beauty or festive energy when the goal is always another item in Santa's bag or to experience some picturesque snowfall. Because appetites are more frequently satisfied in a more productive capitalist society, the occasion for satisfying them means less, and holiday sincerity overall suffers.

Moreover, for most people, surviving in a capitalist involves many compromises. Putting up with incompetent superiors, doing demeaning jobs, and using one physical motion as in factory work or one mental exercise as in paperwork, repeatedly, till it's time to go home involves compromising one's will toward others. Compromise breeds cynicism, thus making more sincere music seem alien.

Seeking a deeper meaning in life vis a vis the hymnal songs does not get you anywhere in a capitalist economy. Neither does yuletide merriment which is symbolized with leftover pagan symbols such as evergreen trees, holly, ivy, mistletoe, etc.

The meaning of the 20th century songs the ladies sang is very different from the pre-20th century Christian/pagan carols they inter-spliced them with. This is not to say 20th century songs about Santa, Christmas nostalgia, and wintery weather are bad. Moreover, in no way is it artificial that we would have less sincere capitalist music in a less sincere capitalist culture. But for those looking for something more than what such a less sincere society can generate, they do not suffice. Mixing them together with religious songs and old pagan songs denudes them all of their essence. So it'd be nice if the ladies could finish the 20th century songs apart from the older carols.


Besides the hymnal songs we listed above, there are some lesser known songs we'd like to share for those looking to explore the landscape of Christmas songs out there:

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
What Child is This? (set to the tune Greensleeves)
Good King Wenceslaus
Carol of the Bells (based on an old pagan song Shchedryk.)

From France:
Sing We Now of Christmas
Bring a Torch Jeannette Isabella
Now is Born the Divine Christ Child
The March of the Kings (tune found in Bizet's opera "Carmen", and allegedly comes from crusader days.)

From England:
Ding Dong Merrily on High
Coventry Carol
The Boar's Head (about a pagan symbol)
The Holly and the Ivy

From Germany:
How Great Our Joy

From Appalachia, USA:
I Wonder as I Wander

Josh Walton's Move to the Wilkes-Barre Jungle (with Commentary)

From the Citizens' Voice: Faith powers man's move to Sherman Hills
WILKES-BARRE - In the two weeks he's lived at Sherman Hills Apartments, Josh Walton has heard gunshots on three different nights and was recently approached by a woman trying to buy drugs.
Sherman Hills, a 344-unit apartment complex located off Coal Street that houses low-income residents, is known to police as a hotbed of crime and has been the site of numerous shootings, including one that injured a Wilkes-Barre police officer.
Walton, 22, knew all about that when he signed his lease. That's why he moved here.
It's Wednesday, and Walton has just returned from his job as a carpenter's apprentice, evident by the white paint stains on his hands, T-shirt and jeans. Boxes and a disassembled desk are still scattered on the living room floor of his one-bedroom apartment in the complex's high-rise, which boasts one of the better views of the city.
Walton, whose long brown hair lies tamed under a white bandana, has moved quite a bit in the past several years.
Walton grew up in Tchintabaraden, Niger, a remote West African village on the edge of the Sahara Desert where his missionary parents worked with a nomadic tribe. He lived there until 2006, when his family returned to the United States. They settled at a retreat for returning missionaries in Jefferson Township, about 16 miles east of Scranton.
Shortly after moving to America, Walton left Pennsylvania to study music at a small Christian college in Ohio. He later returned to the area to study at the Bible Baptist College in Clarks Summit and graduated in 2011.
When he's not wood working, he spends a lot of time with local startup Restored Church, where he leads a weekly Bible discussion and Sunday worship services.
Despite his involvement with an organized church, Walton explained how he sees himself more of a follower of Jesus than a Christian, and how that motivated him to move to Sherman Hills.
"I look at what Jesus did, and the way Jesus lived, and I try to copy that," Walton said. "I think if Jesus was walking around today, he'd be somewhere around here."
While many recent college graduates busy themselves with careers and social lives, Walton said that lifestyle doesn't interest him. He said he wants to focus on helping others in need and "spreading the love of Jesus."
"If you want to help people and to be effective with working with a certain people, you have to relocate. You have to move in with them so you can understand them, so you can relate with them," Walton said. "As I continued hearing about (Sherman Hills), I realized this is the worst part of town รข€¦ I started thinking, I should move there."
While some members of his church have recently hosted a children's summer camp at Sherman Hills, Walton isn't involved with any structured programs at the complex. He said he intends to help his new neighbors by simply getting to know them.
"Honestly, I don't really have any plans because there's really nothing I can do," Walton said. "I think Jesus would live here, and because of that, I'm here."
Walton said he's slowly getting to know people in his building. But at times, he feels like an outsider, and he's learning why the complex has a spotty reputation.
Drugs are everywhere, he said, and residents have explained to him the common practice of people walking into "The Pit," a grassy area below his apartment, and firing guns into the air.
But Walton said he's used to this feeling. In Africa, he said he always felt like he stuck out, and Christians have been targeted by kidnappers. The danger has intensified so much that the governor of his former home recently asked his parents not to return.
The Rev. Dan Nichols, a pastor at Restored Church, said he was initially concerned when he heard about his close friend's plan to move into Sherman Hills. But after some thought, he told him to "go for it."
"I'm just so proud of him," the Rev. Nichols said. "I've never met a guy with such genuine love. He brings everything back to loving people."

It is interesting that Walton no longer need venture as far away as the nation of Niger to find swaths unruly blacks to evangelize (or civilize?). In any case, the reality is that these blacks are slowly turning Wilkes-Barre into Africa/Haiti or anywhere else where large numbers of blacks live. Does Walton stand a chance of changing them?

The main factor which relegates blacks to a low status is their low population IQ. When the world offers no opportunities other than menial manual labor to such persons, a life of crime and welfareism seems a preferable alternative. Crime requires only a daring, cold-blooded spirit, and the ancestral tribal warfare and cannibalism of West Africa bred blacks to have aptitude in this area. Since the dawn of history Europeans and Asians developed complex systems of etiquette and societal organization while "the black man vegetated in savage obscurity, his habitat being well named the Dark Continent." While whites and Asians built vast empires, blacks seldom organized beyond the tribal level.

Many individual blacks who possess a high enough IQ to hold a lucrative job (often due to having a significant portion of higher IQ white blood) are able to break free from the ghetto, but most average blacks find themselves morally and intellectually incapable of doing so.

While mental weakness may doom blacks to a life of poverty, many blame the welfare state for causing the black family to fall apart since the family unit was no longer necessary for survival under it. Economist Thomas Sowell has written annals arguing this. But rejection of Christian morality seems to be at the very least an equal culprit. When blacks all had Christian names, 70% of black children were born in wedlock, as opposed to the reverse of 30% born in wedlock today. When the names started changing in the mid to late '70s to African or Muslim names, black crime continued to skyrocket and the number of single parent homes increased rapidly.

White people who reject Christianity can fall back pursuits of wealth powered by an intellect and work ethic suitable for survival in a highly advanced technological society. This option is not available to most blacks. The manual labor jobs which they could do in the first half of the 20th century are largely gone. Even if there were a free market and no welfare state, blacks would still be impoverished.

Music has also played a role in the destruction of the black family. As popular music incorporated into its body more and more voodoo, blacks and whites alike began behaving less and less Christian, but the impact fell more heavily on blacks because they have less power to produce material wealth and more powerful inclinations to violence and fornication.

What do I mean by "voodoo"? Consider the history of American popular music its voodoo influences. Musicologists denote that blacks in New Orleans who still practiced voodoo influcenced the creation of Jazz and the Blues. The blues morphed into rock and roll, which was far more manaical than the jazz music which was an earlier ancestor of the bluse. Rock and roll spawned numerous offspring including rock music, funk, and later all the variants of popular music today. Even moden country music is essentially rock music with airhorns, being otherwise entirely reasonant of syncopated beats used in voodoo.

In the late 70s and early 80s, Afrika Bambaataa developed rap, the most beat-oriented music yet, and perhaps the closest to voodoo. Countless ancestors of blacks danced to the beats of voodoo, and the extent to which they indulge in rap and other beat-driven music today is the extent to which they awaken the cruel atavisms of their distant pagan ancestors over and above the morally upright ways of their more recent Christian progenitors. Christian blacks of the 18th and 19th centuries sang negro spirituals which were more conducive to soulful virtues than the beats of voodoo. Some of this soulful music survives in a bastardized form in R&B music but it might as well be entirely lost among the black peoples of the US.

The sad fact is that most contemporary Christian music being indistiguishable from pop music, is closer to voodoo than to negro spirituals.

In spite of such sonic hanicaps, Walton may be able to push his black neighbors closer to a Christian way of life and away from drugs and violence. By sacrificing economic opportunities to live in meek poverty, Walton may influence his black neighbors to give up their pursuits in making money selling drugs and to live like him.

But regardless of Walton's efforts, the blacks' low population IQ--the delimiter of their wealth potential--will remain unchanged. Thus even if Walton changes all of Wilkes-Barre's blacks to be righteous, the potential for a Sherman Hills environment to break will always be close by.

Another phenomenon which will likely remain unchanged will be a high black birthrate and declining white birthrate, making the darkening city of Wilkes-Barre a microcosm of the world at large.

Extending white man's moral burden to blacks is a noble endeavor, but doing so offers no solutions to the increasing population of low income blacks. How do we address the low birthrate among college-educated women--black and white alike--who abstain from passing on their intelligence genes to future generations? Christianity cannot answer these questions. But unless we want Wilkes-Barre to have the potential to turn into one giant Sherman Hills, we must answer them.

Message to Readers of this Blog

Dear readers,

There aren't very many of you out there. The few views we receive do not justify the amount of time we spend writing articles. We started off writing disjointed rants to get things off our proverbial chest, but now we wish to produce more original, informed and professional pieces, and thus we will need a better platform.

In the past seven months we've become a lot more serious about politics. We've begun to ask questions that one isn't supposed to ask. We've reached conclusions that would outrage our former fellow travelers.

We no longer wish to promote increasing individual liberty. There are more pressing issues. Even if a liberty candidate like Ron Paul were to win, he would not address the most troubling problems on the horizon which people have blinded themselves to with belief in egalitarianism.

Within certain confines liberty philosophy makes sense, and within these confines the practice of it makes for peaceable high-functioning societies.

But the world will change for the worse, liberty or not. Politics must no longer be about elections but rather preserving populations on a small scale.

The reality is that we face dilemma between turning into Haiti and staving this slide off by moving toward a Brave New World Society.

The only way to prevent the world from sinking into an abyss of Haitian proportions is to move closer to an ideal hierarchical society with hierarchies based on physical reality that determine reproductive quotas.

In light of this it seems incidents of  local corruption or incremental abridgements of liberty --the usual subjects of discussion on this blog -- are but insignificant quibbles in the grand scheme of history. Although such topics are pressing at the moment, they will not matter centuries into the future.

What shapes the horizon is what we've been ignoring all these years.

Black Pawns in a White Liberal Chess Game

The liberal media picked the perfect news story. Anyone who criticizes their characterization of Trayvon as a "young teenager" or who claims there wasn't enough evidence to convict Zimmerman will be viewed by the black community as anti-black. The ultimate goal of white liberals is to get the majority of blacks to view anyone who opposes stand-your-gun laws as anti-black. By pushing a version of the story with Trayvon as the child-like victim, the white liberal media hopes to rally blacks behind an anti-gun agenda. The blacks are being used as pawns in a white liberal chess game against gun rights. In the meantime, leaders like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have an excuse to take charge of the black community; this is not to say that Sharpton et al aren't sincere, but ultimately they are being played as pawns.

Finally. the media also wants to silence pro-gun whites by calling them racist if they support stand-your-ground laws, using the Trayvon Martin case a a point of reference.
The liberal media portrayed the nearly 18 year old Trayvon as a 12 year boy with pictures like the top one. The middle pic is from Trayvon's Twitter account and casts a stark contrast as the manly Trayvon imitates his gangsta rap heroes by wearing gold teeth.

Among most moral people, deceit is thought to be wrong, but liberals use a little literary license, especially when they think they can "save lives" by getting gun bans passed. the media mentioned that Trayvon had Skittles in his pocket from a convenience store. They neglected to mention that he was in possession of stolen items and was even once caught in school with stolen jewelry. As far as ingestibles, marijuana was found in his system in the autopsy. This escaped mention as well, and pictures of him smoking it like the bottom one never appeared on magazine covers. After all, if outlets like Viacom and Disney push songs about smoking dope to black kids, they cannot complain about a trend they may have instigated or at least bolstered.

The portrayals of Trayvon are important because they give hints as to how likely Trayvon was to have initiated violent force.

In any case, it's funny how white liberals eagerly side with Trayvon against the "white hispanic" Zimmerman along with blacks. But for white liberals who wish to curtail gun rights, it is an ingenious strategy because they get conservative white people to lash out at Trayvon in response to the white liberal media's unrealistic portrayal of him. This gesture causes black people to believe that whites, particularly conservative pro-gun whites, are against them. The catch is that Zimmerman isn't even white. So the liberal media have succeeded in getting pro-gun white people to ridicule a black kid who was shot to death by a non-white person who said whites adopted as white, just as the liberal media intended.

The best way conservatives can avoid the label of racist the liberal media is trying to attach to them is to promote stories of blacks who have benefited from stand-your-ground laws. This way they will communicate to blacks that they are not anti-black but merely pro-self defense. Doing this will only create small ripples, however, because liberals control public opinion via the newspapers, TV, and magazines.

The media in America have been liberal since the early 20th century, and until they are shut down, they will continue to checkmate conservatives at every turn. Because of their monopolistic stranglehold on most of the media, resistance is not very effective. Hold on tight.

Wilkes-Barre Murders and the Section 8 Solution

"Wilkes-Barre used to be a beautiful neighborhood where you would want to live, raise your family, and watch your children grow up. Now it's upsetting to see what's going on." So says Luzerne County DA Stefanie Salavantis in the July 20 print edition of the Citizens' Voice.

She continues that "the Wilkes-Barre administration and police department are fighting tooth and nail to take back the streets and keep them safe, but it has been a tough journey."

Wilkes-Barre PD and government are an incompetent, corrupt lot, but even if they were the best, their efforts would be in vain because they can only get to the scene after certain members of the existing population have committed crimes.

The way to make Wilkes-Barre a beautiful neighborhood again is to allow all section 8 housing to deteriorate, and, before tearing down the structures, present occupants with vouchers to go live in newly built complexes in other municipalities that are preferably father away than Scranton. That would reduce the number of shooting deaths by at least 3 or 4 per year -- perhaps more. If welfare could be completely banned in the city, results would be even better. This would rid the city of lay-abouts who have nothing better to do with their left-over energy than get in shootouts.

Wilkes-Barre's new trigger happy population is a symptom of longstanding economic troubles. But the newcomers further contribute to the city's decomposition. Before delving into how, let's examine how Wilkes-Barre got in the sorry state it is in today.

The West side, Mountain Top, and the Back Mountain have drawn many wealthy people out of the city to placid suburbs and comfortable country estates. Meanwhile, the factories and mines shut down, leaving working people with nowhere to work. Many middle to low income earners moved away. With countless houses sitting empty, awaiting occupation, only those content with the sort of substandard living conditions provided by joblessness were willing to live in them. These people consist of a combination of white trash from backwoods areas of PA, blacks from big cities, and more recently, Hispanics from God knows where. Many of these people are recompensed to put up with the substandard conditions out of necessity, facing worse conditions in either more dangerous big cities or more squalid countrysides.

Still, however, a remnant of coalminer descendants constitute the majority of the city's inhabitants. Most are decent people whose only major sin is maybe too many visits to the corner bar. Many are partially stuck in a residual of an ancient ethnic past, but their children have had to integrate more fully with the newer, more violent populations with whom they can share only an androgynous, pop culture-driven way of life.

The coalminer remnant have also built up tribal networks where nepotism and tacit ranks of royalty determine who gets the scarce number of jobs available in schools, government, and even private institutions. This nepotism will probably become even more vicious as the new populations further drive away wage-earners, leaving public institutions with less tax revenue and equal or greater expenses.

The economic lifeblood of the city has fallen into disuse, and now gangrenous lay-abouts increasingly permeate it, further discouraging businesses and working people from settling there. It would be easier to reinvigorate the city if policies were set forth to give incentive for gangrenous elements to leave. Cutting section 8, NOT building new parks, and eliminating welfare would help accomplish this. The resulting peace would attract major employers and consequently working residents more conducive to beautiful neighborhoods.
