The Gods of Liberalism Revisited


The lie hasn't changed, and we still fall for it as easily as ever.  But how can we escape the snare?

Nightline Smears Scalia

As I said last week, the ethics problems in the recent ABC report about Judge Scalia isn't with the court, but with the media.

From an Accuracy in Media report today:

Near the end of the report, host Cynthia McFadden asked, "Now, Brian, there's no evidence, is there, that any of these freebies have influenced any judge in rendering an opinion on the Supreme Court?" Ross said that "it isn't just Justice Scalia. Justices at all ends of the political spectrum take plenty of these trips to lots of nice places, all paid for by somebody else." But Ross never mentioned anything about this so-called "appearance" problem affecting any one of the liberal justices until then, and he did not name any.

He could have done reports on how liberal Justices like former ACLU general counsel Ruth Bader Ginsburg have attended judicial conferences in Europe and have come away with a strange view of how foreign law should guide them in interpreting the U.S. Constitution. Like Scalia, Chief Justice John Roberts and Judge Samuel Alito have both categorically rejected this approach to deciding cases in U.S. courts.

And the Leftist media wonders why thinking people are abandoning them in droves...

Abortion Analogy

Dr. Mike Adams has a very humorous (as usual) piece on feminism today.

He makes a very interesting and telling analogy about abortion in the piece:

I often ask feminists about a film I saw of a fetus in the so-called “first trimester” of development. The baby (sorry, that is my opinion) was yawning, rubbing its eyes, and even rolling around and playing in the womb. I like to ask feminists whether they have ever seen a scab yawn.

When I press them on the issue, they seldom admit that the fetus is a person. But they seldom state unequivocally that it is not. They usually say they “don’t know for sure.” And they say that I “don’t know for sure” either.

That really epitomizes our differences. When I know it is a deer in the brush, I pull the trigger. When I know it is a human, I hold my fire. When I don’t know, I also hold my fire.

The feminist who “doesn’t know” whether it is a person, has the abortion anyway. She just pulls the trigger. That really says it all, doesn’t it?

For anyone out there who knows hunting and/or firearms safety, this is a very telling example. It's a cardinal rule of handling firearms.

It's also a principle that should come naturally to any reasonable human being when dealing with something that could affect the life of another human being...
