RAPID RESPONSE...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section. It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours. Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active. That's all I promise.

ON CHRISTIANITY, THE POPE, ISLAMIC TERRORISM AND ISIS.
Today I received two mailings attesting to the extreme brutality being visited on Christians in Egypt, Syria, and Iraq by Islamic terrorists and Isis, and on Jews by "Palestinian worshipers" in Jerusalem. One is from the lay press. One is from "Religious Freedom Coalition" sited in Washington D.C. And one is an article in this week's National Catholic Register:
"Pope, US Bishops Lament Deadly Egyptian Mosque Attack".
News Flash:
When told that the Pope objected to his deadly actions, Stalin asked: "How many divisions does the Pope have?"
When Pope Pius Xll mounted prolonged actions with other world leaders against Adolph Hitler, those were not only "laments".
When Pope Saint John Paul ll cooperated closely with President Reagan during the entire 1980's in the destruction of the Soviet Union, those were not only "laments".
And now Pope Francis not only laments; he directly attacks the President of the U.S.A. - the only person who is leading effective attacks against Islamic Terrorists and against Isis. Not prudent. Not even Christian in Christianity's responsibility to protect Christians and Jews worldwide. This Pope should be helping to marshal many divisions from America and from "Christian Europe" in this century's battle to the death with Evil.
The World Awaits, Your Holiness.

SEDITION AND TREASON.
The following definitions are taken directly from Webster's College Dictionary.
"Sedition: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority...not including overt acts of violence or betrayal.

Treason implies an overt act aiming at overt overthrow of government or betrayal to the enemy."

The attached reports, and many others during the last year, reflect Sedition at least...and such actions are getting close to Treason.

A NEW CHRISTMAS POEM
 
TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS,
HE LIVED ALL ALONE,
IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF
PLASTER AND STONE.
 
I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY
WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE,
AND TO SEE JUST WHO
IN THIS HOME DID LIVE.
 
I LOOKED ALL ABOUT,
A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE,
NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS,
NOT EVEN A TREE.
 
NO STOCKING BY MANTLE,
JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND,
ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES
OF FAR DISTANT LANDS.
 
WITH MEDALS AND BADGES,
AWARDS OF ALL KINDS,
A SOBER THOUGHT
CAME THROUGH MY MIND.
 
FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT,
IT WAS DARK AND DREARY,
I FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER,
ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY.
 
THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING,
SILENT, ALONE,
CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR
IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME.
 
THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE,
THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER,
NOT HOW I PICTURED
A UNITED STATES SOLDIER.
 
WAS THIS THE HERO
OF WHOM I'D JUST READ?
CURLED UP ON A PONCHO,
THE FLOOR FOR A BED?
 
I REALIZED THE FAMILIES
THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT,
OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS
WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT.
 
SOON ROUND THE WORLD,
THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY,
AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE
A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY.
 
THEY ALL ENJOYED FREEDOM
EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR,
BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS,
LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE.
 
I COULDN'T HELP WONDER
HOW MANY LAY ALONE,
ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE
IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME.
 
THE VERY THOUGHT
BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE,
I DROPPED TO MY KNEES
AND STARTED TO CRY.
 
THE SOLDIER AWAKENED
AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE,
"SANTA DON'T CRY,
THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE;
 
I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM,
I DON'T ASK FOR MORE,
MY LIFE IS MY GOD,
MY COUNTRY, MY CORPS."
 
THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER
AND DRIFTED TO SLEEP,
I COULDN'T CONTROL IT,
I CONTINUED TO WEEP.
 
I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS,
SO SILENT AND STILL
AND WE BOTH SHIVERED
FROM THE COLD NIGHT'S CHILL.
 
I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE
ON THAT COLD, DARK, NIGHT,
THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOR
SO WILLING TO FIGHT.
 
THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER,
WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE,
WHISPERED, "CARRY ON SANTA,
IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY, ALL IS SECURE."
 
ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH,
AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT.
"MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND,
AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT."

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN THE REAL WORLD: ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIANS.
After decades of procrastination, double-dealing cynicism, anti-Semitism and just plain stupidity, this President has done the right thing: The United States recognizes Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel.
What a Concept!  Reality is like that sometimes.
Two articles are useful to introduce the subject:
1) "Trump To Recognize Jerusalem As Capital", by  Matthew Lee and Josef Federman, (AP), in The Day (www.theday.com), Dec. 6, 2017, pA1; and
2) "The Chasm Between U.S. Jews and Israel", by Richard Cohen, Washington Post, ibid.pA4.

And then there are the points made by President Trump himself with the announcement.
a) Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people since antiquity, as well as being the center of three major Religions.
b) Israel has been opposed constantly and in many ways since it was born in 1947.
c) efforts toward a "Two State Solution" have languished for many decades. We cannot continue with failed efforts and approaches.
d) The U.S. passed the "Jerusalem Embassy Act" In 1995. It has never been implemented by three Presidents.
e) It is in the best interests of the U.S. to do so now. And it will advance the cause of Peace.

Meanwhile, all "the usual suspects" worldwide are producing fevered declarations of resulting imminent disaster. They are saying what they have to say now, as a fig leaf over their many decades of studied neglect or active interference - in their own interests, of course.

Read the entire speech of the President. It is historic.  And it forms the blueprint for American efforts in that region over the next several years, as it begins the transfer of the American Embassy to the Capital.
I agree with all of this...just as I agree with the sun rising in the East and setting in the West.

Teaching In The Real World!

After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective
teacher said:

Let me see if I've got this right”.

“You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their
disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their
dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages and instill in them a love
for learning.

You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs
and sexually transmitted diseases and raise their sense of self-esteem
and personal pride.

You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship,
sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a
check book, and apply for a job.

You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of
antisocial behavior, and ensure that they all pass their final exams.

You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of
their handicap and communicate regularly with their parents in
English, Arabic or any other language, by letter, telephone,
newsletter, and report card..

You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a
bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that
qualifies me for "New Start!"

You want me to do all this, and then you tell me . . .

I CAN'T wear a necklace with a little cross, mention God, or say
"Merry Christmas" because someone might take offense?

Well, you know what you can do with your job!

This should be posted in every school in America and all countries.

Think About It!

If Muslims can pray anywhere, why are Christians banned from praying
in public and from erecting religious displays on their holy days?

What happened to our National Day of Prayer?

Muslims are allowed to block off major streets, in all American States
and pray in the middle of the street! And it's a monthly ritual!

Tell me, again, whose country is this - Ours or the Muslims?

I was asked to send this on if I agree, or delete if I don't.

It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, I have a
very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having
'God' in our education system or the Lord's Prayer said in our
government buildings, schools or public meetings.

I believe it's time we stand up for what we believe!

REGARDING THE DAY (www.theday.com), OUR VERY GOOD REGIONAL NEWSPAPER.
As readers of the Rapid Response section of my web site must have noticed, I have a Love/Not Love relationship with these journalists. The editorial content regularly leans Left in its Politics, sometimes falling over.

But there are also many times when they get the commentary right, at least in the opinion of a long-time former Democrat - until the Party Lost Its Mind.
Here I offer three recent examples of the editorial writers getting it right on point.
  1. The recent opinion on the Sexual Harassment follies under way.
  2. The editorial on gun restrictions and the Second Amendment. (Dec. 3, 2017)
  3. The editorial advising "Democrats to play hardball", especially with Republican hypocrites and "Republicrats". (Dec. 3, 2017).

Movie Review:  "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"

(Posted: December 3, 2017)

First, the good news. Frances McDormand is still a great actress, although I prefer her wearing a badge and an 8 month pregnancy. Woody Harrelson surprised me. I always considered him to be a B actor. He does much better here. The strength of the movie is in its characterizations; and there are a number of interesting characters, all played well.

Now for the bad news. For a small town suggesting Middle America, there is an awful lot of swearing and foul language, most of it gratuitous. Also gratuitous and out from left field is a major dressing - down of a Catholic priest, obviously for points in some quarters. There are too many story-plot lines, tenuously held together. The mood is incessantly down, unnecessarily so.

In summary, I would still have recommended this movie if it had ended at least 1/2 hour earlier...and had taken the rest of the detritus with it. But not now.

A "C".

SHOOTING FROM THE HIP.
The following are brief personal observations on current affairs, some prompted by articles in the WSJ and other sources.
Why should you care?
Consider this quotation of Susan Sontag:
"DO STUFF, BE CLENCHED, CURIOUS. NOT WAITING FOR INSPIRATION'S SHOVE OR SOCIETY'S KISS ON YOUR FOREHEAD. PAY ATTENTION. IT'S ALL ABOUT PAYING ATTENTION, ATTENTION IS VITALITY. IT CONNECTS YOU WITH OTHERS. IT MAKES YOU EAGER, STAY EAGER."
And so:
1) "George Soros's $18 Billion Tax Shelter" (WSJ). There are many others, who are allowed to donate to political issues on the Right and the Left...tax - free. NOT RIGHT.
2) British Prime Minister Theresa May chides our President for warning about Radical Islam. Check your rear-view mirror, Madam.
3) "The Hague Aims for U.S. Soldiers". (WSJ). More, always more, on the "World Order" tripe. ABSOLUTELY NOT!.
4) In the world of unintended consequences, "a program to reduce hospital admissions may have led to more deaths" (WSJ). Who but a Washington bureaucrat would financially penalize a hospital for re-admitting within 30 days a patient originally admitted for heart failure - who comes in with a broken leg? You betcha.
5) Bureaucrats trying to weaken private property rights in the form of Patent and Copyright Law changes, issues currently before the USSC (WSJ). WRONG. Another area where the "insane are taking over the asylum".
6) "How Tax Reform Will Lift The Economy" (WSJ). Democrats ignore and vilify that concept, pointing to the mainly failed social experiments they imposed over the last 40 years financed by never-ending government deficit spending. WRONG.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?"
