Libertarian Commentary on the News, #13-26B: Lies and more lies – “messiah” style

The “messiah’s” minions – Lies and more lies
Clapper: I gave ‘erroneous’ answer because I forgot about Patriot Act

(Guardian (UK))Intelligence chief tries to explain false Senate testimony by saying he ‘simply didn’t think’ of NSA efforts to collect phone data

Mama’s Note: Of course he just forgot… the “head” of all this snooping certainly can’t be expected to remember all the silly details of the “law” that supposedly justifies it all… even when giving sworn testimony. Thing is, just why did he think he could get away with such obvious lies? Proof that these morons are not omnipotent, for sure.

Nathan: Of course, the other excuse that he can use is that there are SO MANY spy efforts that he can’t remember even all the major ones.  And I might even accept his excuse…. BUT Supposedly, that is why big government thug-bosses have staffers, to REMIND them of inconvenient things (like the truth). It is like giving a presentation on elephants, and thinking “I’m not going to mention elephants!”  Man should be punished for perjury and contempt.  Best punishment?  FIRE HIM.

Tranzi tricks – Culture wars: homosexuality and “marriage”
Bill Maher: Jesus ‘Bitched’ About the Rich, But Not Homosexuality

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Filthy, disrespectful language aside, Jesus did NOT single out homosexuals for mention Himself directly.  He didn’t need to: He made it clear that ALL of the old Law (the Law of Moses) was in effect and that sin was sin, even if it could be forgiven (the example being the woman found in adultery).  He also had Peter, Paul, and the other New Testament writers clearly condemn it (even if the King James Version translators botched the translation).  More germane to the point, the Lord defined marriage as one-man-one-woman, not any combination of two or more, and anything outside of marriage as “sin” (that awful old word), so that by definition, homosexual activity is a sin.  Those who want a new-age Jesus with a big umbrella will have to try something else.  but for this column, the political impact is clear:  Despite Maher’s efforts to “defend christianity” (sarcasm here, folks), the SCOTUS decision and its language make it clear that christians who believe, teach, and practice what Jesus taught and what is found in the New Testament of the Bible are “enemies of the human race” and therefore “enemies of the state.”  No matter how much they protest that Romans 13 or any other scripture says that they are to obey the king.  “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me” – even if that “god” is the state.

Home front – Stupid people, stupid government
Odd Loaded Gun Trend Leaves TSA Officials Scratching Their Heads

(TheBlaze/AP) — Several times every day, at airports across the country, passengers are trying to walk through security with loaded guns in their carry-on bags, purses or pockets, even in a boot. And, more than a decade after 9/11 raised consciousness about airline security, it’s happening a lot more often. In fact, the increase is stunning. In the first six months of this year, Transportation Security Administration screeners found 894 guns on passengers or in their carry-on bags, a 30 percent increase over the same period last year. The TSA set a record in May for the most guns seized in one week — 65 in all, 45 of them loaded and 15 with bullets in the chamber and ready to be fired. That was 30 percent more than the previous record of 50 guns, set just two weeks earlier. Last year TSA found 1,549 firearms on passengers attempting to go through screening, up 17 percent from the year before.

Nathan: I personally think that this is a good sign.  The more of us that carry, the more likely some of us are to forget we are carrying.  People always make mistakes – and note, no information on how many of these are “law enforcement” and therefore used only to jack up the numbers.  But this means that a LOT more people are carrying – even if carrying concealed.  So criminals (including jack-booted thugs) have more to worry about on the streets and in the businesses of the nation.  Still, it is a fun story to read, and if sometimes enough to make you angry, an interesting perspective.  I was surprised to find out that TSA does not AUTOMATICALLY arrest you for carrying one (or so they claim, but again, this IS TSA), and sometimes don’t even steal the gun.  And the data in the story does pretty much match what I thought otherwise: more in the West and South, the excuse “I just forgot” usually not believed, and the fact that when you are undressed unless you ARE properly armed, you don’t think of it as much.  Especially given the way more and more of us (including gun owners and carriers) are brain dead so much of the time.

Mama’s Note: I find it very hard to believe that people found with guns in an airport are not arrested and persecuted every single time. The way the TSA carries on over a little bottle of water or a keychain “knife” would seem to illustrate their utter insanity and determination to prohibit as many things as possible. I keep waiting for them to decree that all passengers must board the aircraft stark naked. Personally, I can’t imagine forgetting that I’m carrying a gun, at least to that extent.

The “messiah” – Stealing children
Obama: ‘My Neighbor’s Child Is My Child’

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Not if I can help it, and if I’m armed:  we have a word for this kind of person out west: gallows fruit (well, most modern folk would use “lead sponge” something similar for this kind of child molester.  None of my kids, none of my fellow church member’s kids, none of my relatives or neighbors’ kids belong to this thug. But clearly this man and his consort lack acceptable parenting skills, as the next story tells us about her.

Michelle Obama Praises ‘Way to Sneak New Vegetables Onto the Kids’ Trays’
(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: This is precisely the tactic I was warned NOT to use on my children by my parents and other elders.  But exactly what I would expect out of a liar’s wife who is herself a Tranzi lawyer (or ex-lawyer).  How can you tell when a lawyer isn’t telling the truth?  When their mouth is open.  Their poor children.

Mama’s Note: Never had to trick my sons into eating vegetables. They ate anything I put in front of them. Just worked on ways to get them to slow down and enjoy it more. Unfortunately, so many of today’s parents grew up on soda pop and junk “foods,” and that’s all they know – so that’s all their children know as well. The good news is that many are looking at healthy diets and getting rid of the junk. But they have to want to do that, of course. It can’t be legislated or forced.
