To give credit where due…

… good on Trump for two things recently: rolling back the scope of America’s actions in Syria (moving away from toppling the Assad regime as the supreme goal) and trolling the progs and neo-cucks with his Twitter-announced ban on transgendered serving in the military. It’s most revealing to once again see not only progs losing it over Trump’s tweet, but also the neo-cons, and crunchy con bearded Orthodox hipster Rod Dreher.

And we know that no other Republican would have dared gone there.

But Trump did.

Moar of this, please.

 

Cyborgs, or the Mark of the Beast; take your pick…

What some have warned us about is coming to pass:

Wisconsin company offers microchip implants to employees

Company says it is first in United States to offer the technology to staff

A Wisconsin vending machine company is offering its employees a chance to have a microchip implanted in their hands that they could use to buy snacks, log in to computers or use the copy machine.

About 50 employees at Three Square Market have agreed to the optional implant of the chips, which are the approximate size and shape of a grain of rice, said Tony Danna, vice president of international sales at the River Falls-based company.

The company, which employs 85, said it was the first in the United States to offer staff the technology which is similar to that used by contactless credit cards and chips used to identify pets.

The implants made by Sweden’s BioHax International are part of a long-term test aimed to see if the radio-frequency identification chips could have broader commercial applications, Danna said.

“We’ve done the research and we’re pretty well educated about this,” Danna said in an interview.

The company is holding an Aug. 1 “chip party” where employees will have the device inserted between their forefinger and thumb using a syringe-like instrument.

The RFID chips use electromagnetic fields to communicate and can be read at a distance of no more than six inches (15 centimetres), Danna said.

Critics of using chips in humans include Nevada State Senator Becky Harris, who in February introduced legislation that would make forced installation of microchips illegal.

“It is possible to hack the information that is contained within the chips,” Harris told a state Senate judiciary committee meeting at the time.

The company’s CEO Todd Westby in a statement predicted the technology could become popular among companies.

“Eventually, this technology will become standardized allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc.,” he said.

Heaven help us…

 

Submission with a twist, and denying rebellion.

Exhibit #5,965,783 why I loathe the celebrity pastors of the Reformed world – Doug Wilson, Doug Phillips, John Piper, Tim Keller, Al Mohler, Mark Driscoll, etc. almost as much as I loathe evanjellyfish types like Russell Moore. Churchian Blue-Pill ‘complementarian’ cucks, all…

Between evangelicalism and the Reformed world, I don’t think I’ve encountered yet a single famous preacher who isn’t problematic doctrinally in some way or another. Eschew the famous ones. They all suck. (Mind you, so do many unknown ones, but almost always, the famous ones have gotten so by in some way compromising doctrinally, and thereby becoming worldly popular…) (Don’t think I’m endorsing mainlines, or Pope Francis, though; not for a minute…)

Pastor Doug Wilson has a new post up titled 21 Theses on Submission in Marriage (HT Hmm).  Taken individually, most of the theses are good, and parts of the post are excellent. For brevity I’ll focus on what I see as the main flaws in the post, but I would encourage my readers to follow the link and read the whole thing.

One of the key ways complementarians neuter headship is by adding a special rule to husbands;  submission is mandatory, they tell us, but husbands must not instruct or try in any way to coerce their wives into accepting their biblical role.  As Mary Kassian explains in 7 Misconceptions about Submission, husbands must only love their wives sacrificially, and hope their wife gets the hint:

Misconception #4: Submission is a right—a husband has the right to demand his wife’s submission.

A husband does not have the right to…

Woman who raped student sues him for “defamation”

Toy Soldiers

It is rare that any case of women sexually abusing boys leaves me at a loss for words. I have read about the most ridiculous situations, from women claiming the boys raped them to women suing their victims for child support. However, the most recent case left me stunned.

A woman convicted of sexually abusing one of her 16-year-old students filed a lawsuit against the boy for “defamation”:

The former Arroyo Grande High School teacher convicted earlier this year of having sex with a 16-year-old student has responded to a lawsuit from that student’s family by filing a counterclaim, alleging the victim has defamed her “to various classmates, family and other members of the community.”

I will quote it again just in case the multiple face palms prevented you from reading it in full:

Cultural Marxism moves Overton

Indeed, one could even be a leftist or progressive in several regards in 1965, especially on primarily economic issues, while hewing to what was still orthodoxy back then on moral matters, esp. as regards sexuality, the relations between the sexes, and life/death matters; such wasn’t seen as even inconsistent, let alone beyond the pale. But now, such people today would get lumped in with us reactionaries, as way beyond the pale, according to the powers that be.

Nothing Could Possibly Go Wrong

Nothing Could Possibly Go Wrong

Old Life

In 1872 the Protestant churches in Scotland handed over all their schools to the State on the explicit condition that Scottish State Education should continue to be Christian. From that day on the Scottish Education system (unlike the American one) has officially been Christian. The Catholics, being wiser than the Protestants, didn’t trust the State and so they kept their own schools. Even within living memory most schools in Scotland would have had ‘religious’ worship, school chaplains and bible teaching. The ethos of the schools were largely Christian. But this is now virtually unrecognisable. Secular humanists/atheists have cuckoo like taken over the State education system and are now using Salami tactics (piece by piece) to dismantle the remaining parts of it – crying tolerance and equality in order not to tolerate Christianity and in order to prevent Christians from receiving the equal education that the UN Human Rights charter demands.

The Third Law Of Female Journalism

Yep. 🙂

PA

We are all familiar with Steve Sailer’s perspicacious First Law of Female Journalism, which he coined in 2009:

The most heartfelt articles by female journalists tend to be demands that social values be overturned in order that, Come the Revolution, the journalist herself will be considered hotter-looking.

Researching the subject, I discovered that someone had already come up with a Second Law of Female Journalism:

The types of sexual relationships advocated for by female journalists tend to follow closely with the sort currently purchasable by their sexual market value.

I will now humbly submit the third law. It occurred to me while reading an article titled “Why these professors are warning against promoting the work of straight, white men,” which cites this bit of heavy breathing:

doing so also perpetuates what they call “white heteromasculinism,” which they defined as a “system of oppression” that benefits only those who are “white, male, able-bodied, economically privileged…
