Congress warned North Korean EMP attack would kill ‘90% of all Americans’ | Washington Examiner

At a House hearing, experts said that North Korea could easily employ the “doomsday scenario” to turn parts of the U.S. to ashes.

 In calling on the Pentagon and President Trump to move quickly to protect the grid, the experts testified that an explosion of a high-altitude nuclear bomb delivered by a missile or satellite “could be to shut down the U.S. electric power grid for an indefinite period, leading to the death within a year of up to 90 percent of all Americans.”

Two members of the former congressional EMP commission said the threat to the U.S. has never been higher, in part because of the current high level of saber rattling by both sides and North Korea’s surprising display over the past six months of its ability to deliver on its threats.

“With the development of small nuclear arsenals and long-range missiles by new, radical U.S. adversaries, beginning with North Korea, the threat of a nuclear EMP attack against the U.S. becomes one of the few ways that such a country could inflict devastating damage to the United States. It is critical, therefore, that the U.S. national leadership address the EMP threat as a critical and existential issue, and give a high priority to assuring the leadership is engaged and the necessary steps are taken to protect the country from EMP,” the experts told a House Homeland Security subcommittee.

Really, Ireland? | nebraskaenergyobserver

The following is really disturbing. It seems like yesterday that Ireland was known for being Irish Catholic and producing more priests than they needed. In fact, they were supplying us with priests at the same time Che was on his murderous killing spree. What a scandal this is.

Hard to understand just what the Republic of Ireland is thinking. A few months ago they installed a picture of Che Guevara as somebody of Irish descent who had made a difference in South America. Well, I suppose one could say that if one allows that murdering thousands of innocent fellow citizens is making a difference. In that case, the Cuban population of Miami was enraged and soon it was gone. And the Irish government apologized. Good. But I wonder if . . .

THE PERSECUTION OF ORTHODOXY

If one considers the transformation of Plato’s Academy, champion of eternal truth, into a center of radical skepticism against which St. Augustine wrote his Contra Academicos, or contemplates the splits and changes that have occurred in all other philosophical schools, one will see that the preservation of Catholic doctrine over two millennia is a miracle. Considering likewise the countless divisions between and within the different Protestant confessions, as well as in other religions, it is evident that the way Catholic teaching has survived intact, becoming increasingly clear with each confrontation with error, is a wonder far greater than healing the sick or making the blind see.

Add to this the fact that many priests, bishops, cardinals, and popes not only lived very bad lives opposed to Catholic teaching, but rejected many Catholic doctrines, or simply did not believe them. Any purely human institution would long since have been dissolved, or suffered inner divisions and contradictions that would have been reflected in its creeds and official teachings.

In the Acts of the Apostles, Gamaliel declared the Church’s survival impossible unless it were established and preserved by God. The same line of thought underlies Boccaccio’s famous story in the Decameron, of the Christian merchant and the Jew, who converts precisely because the many unworthy and worldly men whom he met in the Vatican did not destroy the Church, which therefore must be of God. When one observes that “the Church” gloriously overcame the many crises it suffered, one can only mean the true voice and official teachings of the Church. One cannot deny that these same errors have lingered until the present day, and even gained force in many circles despite having been recognized and condemned.

In the last fifty years, the crisis that threatened the Church most gravely is one of moral theology and of the understanding of “natural law.” This crisis became dramatically clear after the publication of Humanae Vitae. At first, theologians who opposed the document sought refuge in the sanctuary of moral conscience, the supreme subjective norm of morality. Instead of seeing conscience as founded upon the objective truth about good and evil, upon the infinite dignity of God, and the towering dignity of man, instead of recognizing that conscience is called to form itself through the truth, these men saw it as a subjective generator of what is good and evil—for me. As if it were not necessary that conscience correspond to objective moral norms that are inscribed in the essence of things and of human acts, and in the eternal holiness of God.

Yet the moral-theological phalanx that turned against Humanae Vitaewas not content with saying that the ethical errors and gravely disordered acts of those who practice contraception are purely subjectively justified by their erring conscience. Instead, these opponents suddenly wanted to claim the full objectivity of their opposition to Humanae Vitae, saying that we do not deal here only with erring consciences (tirelessly invoked by Rocco Buttiglione in his defense of Amoris Laetitia).

Defenses of the subjectivity of conscience still implied that the sinner, who found himself entangled in errors of conscience, should be better taught and humbly submit his judgment to the objective truth about the intrinsic wrongness of his acts. Rejecting this, the new proportionalist and consequentialist ethical theory (really a rehash of old ideas) allowed theologians to claim: Under many circumstances the acts Humanae Vitaecalled intrinsically wrong are, objectively speaking, not wrong at all. Those who disobeyed Humanae Vitae not only had every right to follow their own conscience, even against the Church, they were objectively right when they chose to do so.

Whether this position was called “proportionalism,” “consequentialism,” “purely teleological ethics,” “situation ethics,” etc., the point was the same: It threw overboard the central teaching of all ethics since Socrates, Plato, and Cicero, and throughout the history of the Church—namely, the teaching that there are intrinsically wrong acts. Acts such as lying, raping a woman, abortion, murder, euthanasia, using false judgments to fulfill one’s own lust—as did the old judges who accused Susanna of adultery because she had refused their evil wishes—are always wrong and gravely disordered. The young Daniel’s glorious act of uncovering their lie and injustice, and his just judgment against these evil old men, brings home with gripping force the existence of acts of injustice, lies, calumnies, killing the innocents, etc., that are absolutely and under all circumstances wrong; they are what is called an intrinsece malum.

Now this new moral theology, advocated by Fuchs, Demmer, Böckle, Schüller, and many others, denied that any act could be judged morally, except in terms of its good and bad consequences. Hence, there does not exist an intrinsically and always wrong human action. If an action, whatever its inner nature may be, promises to lead to a lessening of evils in the world, it can be justified. We can easily see that with this ethics nothing in Catholic moral teaching would remain intact. Because no act would be bad by its nature, but good or bad only with reference to the concrete complexity of life and the web of causes and effects.

The Unserious ‘Serious’ Discussion About Guns: There is no real moral philosophy informing it.

by George Neumayr in the American Spectator

The philosophy underlying liberalism is at once totalitarian and relativistic. It proposes more government and less morality. It laughs at the mustiness of the Ten Commandments, then demands respect for a flurry of new laws. It scoffs at old codes of self-control, then presses for “gun control” and greater state controls on this or that freedom.

From this ethos, regnant for decades in elite circles, has come an out-of-control society in which pols reflexively respond to unspeakable tragedy by advocating more and more laws for a people whose gradual loss of virtue guarantees that they will violate them. The terminus of this toxic admixture of totalitarianism and relativism is the transformation of society into a kind of prison: an endless number of laws and deprivation of freedoms imposed on an increasingly soulless citizenry. Of course, the people running such a system, the totalitarian elite, make sure to exempt themselves from the confines of the prison even as they boast of its glorious benefits. Recall the Soviet thugs who would impress Western visitors with stats proving the Soviet Union’s “low crime rate,” or Fidel Castro showing visiting dignitaries “how safe Havana is.”

That is the utopia to which gun-control liberals hope to lead America. They clamor for a tragedy-proof America in which “nothing bad ever happens to anyone,” except the massive loss of their freedom. The gun control lobby’s “solution” to crime isn’t the recovery of a civil society that teaches virtue but the granting of more and more power to a state that treats everyone like a criminal.

Conspicuously absent from all the sanctimonious lectures on gun control this week was any grappling with America’s cultural meltdown, which is the most comprehensible explanation for a spike in mass shootings even as laws and restrictions multiply. Indeed, the loudest voices for gun control come from the degenerate cultural forces most responsible for that meltdown. They demand that America “get serious about gun control,” even as they get less and less serious about the values and institutions most essential to the preservation of civilization. Educrats who have decimated America’s public schools profess shock at an increase in “school shootings”; late-night hosts who roll out the red carpet for blood-and-gore stars wonder at the “glamour of violence”; an elite that prides itself on destroying the traditional family is aghast at the rise of so many mass-shooting misfits who come from “broken families.”

All of the hasty calls for more gun control from these preening frauds conveniently ignored that the Las Vegas shooter used illegal guns. If anything, the tragedy is an indictment of their exclusive focus upon legislation as a solution to criminal pathology. That they would politicize it so quickly, without bothering to engage any of the facts of the tragedy, underscores the opportunistic totalitarianism always lurking beneath their demagoguery. They never let a crisis or a mass shooting go to waste.

According to the media, late-night comedy talk show hosts now serve as the “conscience of the nation” at these fraught moments, which sounds about right for a democracy as fatuous as ours. In between showing clips from the latest demented, violence-drenched Hollywood movie, they are going to lead the nation towards “sensible gun control,” apparently. “Sensible gun control” is the elite’s euphemism for making sure that everyone except their bodyguards is deprived of guns.

Beware of the word “sensible” in the mouth of statists. It is what they say right before they violate a right. Obama’s call for “sensible conscience protections” foreshadowed his fiat violating the consciences of all employers by forcing them to cover the abortifacients and contraceptives of their employees. “Sensible gun control” foreshadows the destruction of the Second Amendment.

The left is neither sensible nor serious about controlling wicked behavior. If it were, it would seek to shore up the foundations of civilization, without which the multiplication of laws is useless, to which the tragedy in Las Vegas attests. It is insensible to think that good laws can protect the innocent without a functioning civil society that reinforces them. It is precisely the fruit of that civil society, a culture of self-control, that the liberal elite has done the most to poison. Liberals favor “gun control” without self-control. In the end, this just means more and more government control — an endless cycle of relativism leading to totalitarianism.

What is the legacy of the last 50+ years of leftist protesting?

Image result for protest looting

The progressives and an endless spin-off of groups has captured the media for an insufferable amount of time. We have had legitimate protests before, of course, and they were usually on national topics of concern; civil rights, the increased involvement in Vietnam come to mind. They were topics that concerned us all as a nation and as moral concerns.

But am I the only one that has noticed that for the last 50+ years there seems to be a protest of the day club that concerns insignificant numbers of people who have decided that they are victims or that some imagined plot is afoot to oppress them? You rarely see counter protests from the other side although there are always a few right wing nuts looking for a brawl who might show up at one of these daily events or even hold a rally for some really radical ideas in order to spark a riot and get their names in the paper. But in the main, it is leftist progressives, socialists, marxists and communists who get 24/7 attention by the media and, of course, there are those who want to fight for their right to be as immoral as they want and the rest of you can just shut the hell up.

When I went to college, racism was considered a dead topic to most of the youth, many of whom stood with blacks and did what they could to right the wrongs of the past. In that short space of time interracial friendships emerged that were cut short by the demands and the violence of groups such as the Black Panthers. My former friends informed me one day that they could no longer be seen hanging out with white people anymore . . . they had to show ‘solidarity’ with their ‘brothers and sisters’ (meaning other black people). Since that time race baiters have abounded and multiplied due to the work of people like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and others who made their living by creating divisions, spawned many spin-off groups with various demands and it paid them surprisingly well. Most have done nothing in this life but create chaos for a living and got rich in the process.

Of course these same tactics are employed by the left today, not only for blacks but for gays, transgenders, muslims, legalized drugs, taxing the rich, widening the government’s ‘obligation’ to give them a bigger piece of the pie even though the pie consisted largely from the taxable profits of those whom they detested. The outcome has become, I think, a spiraling down into a society that is looking more and more like a lunatic fringe of anarchists rather than a cohesive group of patriotic citizens who are protesting for a better world and society.

I can no longer turn on a TV or go to a movie or eat in a restaurant or watch a football game without some idiots protesting something. It is on the sitcoms, the weather channels, the sports channels and almost anywhere you turn. And, of course, it sucks all the oxygen from the news channels so that it seems nothing else at all is going on in the world or nothing else is of such importance as the present grievance du jour.

Every single protest of every single individual, no matter if it is 1 person or a hundred people, is worth smearing all over the place. We have had scores of protests for things that turned out to be untrue; fantasy protests if you like. We start to wonder if we have spoiled our children into a hedonistic solipsistic society that no longer believes in work, patriotism, moral right and wrong or the good of the country or the world in general — simply themselves at a given moment in time. Others have a more sinister motivation such as using protests to line their pockets with whatever loot they can get by destroying storefronts and stealing everything in sight. Some get their kicks from setting fires and getting in fights or actually killing another person in the streets.

I have, as has the rest of America, been recently driven away from sports by those who would drag ‘politics’ (actually self-gratification) into a product that people were buying simply for the product. Believe it or not, some of us actually want an education to be about learning something, the weather to be about the weather, a comedy show to be funny, and a sports game to be strictly about the game itself. I’ve about had it, to tell the truth.

I don’t know the answer to this unraveling of civil society other than staying away from TV, movies, restaurants and large crowds of people where these protesters seem to show up on a daily basis. To paraphrase an old cartoon: there oughta be a law.

To Sign or Not to Sign

I have been asked to sign the Filial Correction, I signed the letter of the 45 academics and pastors last year, and almost immediately found Cardinal Nichols’ tanks parked on my lawn to inform me of his displeasure, which was quite mild unlike other lay signatories, who were sacked from their jobs in Catholic institutions for their pains, Dr. Josef Seifertis being the most high profile. I admit it, I am afraid to sign and I know other priests who share my fear. Many of those who might have signed have in the last four years have a certain fear about their place in the Church.

Rome and those surrounding the Pontiff have certainly become more vicious in defending him, never ever engaging in intellectual arguments, merely attacking like ravenous wolves or child bullies those who pose questions. The climate is bad throughout the Church, in Rome it is positively toxic. Under Francis the Vatican has become a place of fear and arbitrary oppression, there was a public glimpse of that in the sacking of Cdl Mueller by the Pope, and earlier in the dismissal of a couple of priests from the CDF and amongst laymen of Libero Milone, former Auditor General and many others. It is not just in theology that 2+2=5, or whatever number the Pope chooses that day, it extends to morality and ordinary human decency, ultimately it is a serious attack on the rationality of the Catholic faith and intellectual rigour.

The abusive attacks on any one who asks legitimate filial questions or even of people like Cardinal Burke and the other “Dubia Cardinas” or even Cdls Sarah or Mueller  by the likes Austen Ivereigh, Rosica or Spadaro merely echo the statements of the notoriously immoderate Cardinal Madriaga the senior member of the Pope’s Council of Nine or the shocking insults always aimed at faithful Catholics by the Pope himself. Let us not even go to the shenanigans and manipulation surrounding the Synod on the Family.

Left wing idiocy keeps insinuating itself into our lives ~ leave us the hell alone

I don’t think I am alone among those who are sick and tired of the left wing hollywood productions, situation comedies, late night comedies and their constant barrage in their biased news programming. It seemed that sports was the last bastion where people did not have to be bludgeoned with individual personal peeves and their infantile protests when all that the consumer wants is an escape from the constant drone of discontent and their declaration that they are  life’s victim. This is the land where the global leftist elites have make multi-million dollar salaries to be actors or players in professional sports, political leaders or ‘news’ people who weasel their own opinion and fabricate news to suit their ideologies. They have brainwashed children with their drivel starting with animated children programming but sports was thankfully the last bastion of relief from all this inane drivel.

I for one have had enough of professional sports that disrespect the country that gave them the opportunity to live lifestyles in obscene oppulence; the same for those in news, movies and all the rest. Who cares what their opinions are anyway? I tune into baseball, basketball or football to escape the unintelligible banter from the left and now that this form of relaxation has become more of the same who in their right minds would want to tune in to watch these snowflakes try to bolster their ‘cred’ with the left by politicizing sports?

ESPN that has become a left wing mouthpiece to yap their grievances (especially against Trump) is unbearable. I am about to the point of getting rid of TV altogether as these idiots think that because they have money, power and prestige that they can do anything and bear no responsibility to deliver to their customes that for which they pay for: sports, for the sake of sports. Let them all retire and lets go back to amateur sports where we don’t yet have this elitist insistence to weigh in on anything and everything they feel is revelant to them; as if their opinion is far superior to the little people.

And by the way, what makes you think that anybody thinks you are experts in anything other than your craft. I do not look to you hollywood elites, political whiners and weasels or sports figures to give us their expert advice. I for one am done with all of it: no more hollywood movies, sitcoms, late night shows, far left politicians, and now professional sports and especially ESPN which I will avoid like the plague.

Thanks very much for ruining the last television programming that had not been fully corrupted by politics. You can take your political opinions down to the corner coffee shop and maybe someone will buy you a cup of coffee – but don’t count on it.
