In Obama’s Henchmen, Selwyn Duke has analyzed the workings of Obama and his administration in a way I'd not seen before. I find it intriguing even if I'm not sure I accept some of his premises. (For instance, when the Sustainability angle is not considered in the mix of premises, what seems bizarre isn't really, and that is due to the misanthropic morality that the Sus crowd has embraced.)

But it is well composed, so I thought I should pass it along to my readers who are upset with the decline of America. http://pascalfervor.blogspot.com/2013/05/on-road-to-americas-end.html

Robert Berger

This is a typical Selwyn Puke crock of you-know-what . These so-called "Obama scandals" are COMPLETELY MANUFACTURED, and have been concocted to distract the gullible right-wing public fromt he REAL scoundrels, the abominable GOP - which has morphed into the most evil,corrupt and dangerous organization on the planet . It has been hhijacked by the American Taliban, the religious right .
The GOP is being held hostage by the stupidest,most ignorant, bigoted, narrow-minded,intolerant, self-righteous and fanatical jerks ever to serve in congress and as governors, moronic scum like Sarah Palin,Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry,Rick Santorum,James inhofe, Louie Gohmert ,Ken Coo-coo Cuccinelli ,Allen West and other pathetic excuses for politicians .
The Benghazi scandal ? Over 50 Americans were killed in terrorist attacks on U.S. embassies during the catastrophic presidency of the pathetic Goerge W. Bush , and there was not a peep from GOP pols in congress or naywhere else among the right .How hypocritical can you get ? Obama is hardly perfect,but he is America's only hope against the onslaught of the evil GOP and religious right, which threaten to turn America into a Christian theocracy which would be little better than the Islamic theocracies of the middle east .

Robert the Reprobate.

When was the last Christian theocracy? When was the first? In all of history? I am an educated, evangelical (althoguh admittedly unorthodox) Christian. I know of no one, I repeat NO ONE, who advocates for a Christian (or any other religious) theocracy. Those who you decry call for morality - a concept that you clearly do not understand because you have a reprobate mind.

Selwyn wrote this: "One not only can be both evil and incompetent, but the two qualities are, in fact, almost always intertwined. Why? Because to justify their behavior, evil people have to continually rationalize away Truth. This means they have to habitually lie to themselves about what reality is — and when you do this long enough you fall out of touch with reality." And it clearly applies to you. So does the Epistle of St. Paul to the Romans in chapter 1, verses 18-32.

Robert Berger

Many evangelical Christians DO want theocracy, or something dangerously close to theocracy in America even though they dney it . There HAVE been Christian theocracies in Europe, such as Spain during the Inqiuisition ,and they treated non-christina swith the utmost brutality .
Evangelical Christians in are calling for "morality?" WHOSE morality ? Not everyone agrees on what is moral . The bigotry of so many Christians toward homosexuals and their ill will toward them, the vicious,ugly and stupid things they say about homosexuals is NOT moral .
The intolerance of evangelicla Christians to those hwo do not share their narrow and rigid religious views is NOT moral .
I'm certainly not perfect, but no one who knows me would say I'm a bad or evil person,including my friends who happen to be Christian . I have no desire or intention to deprive people of their civil rights merely because they happen to be homosexual. I don't hate Christians, but I do dislike SOME of them,not because they are Christians, but because they are appallingly nasty, mean-spirited, ignorant, foolish, intolerant and self-righteous people. I don't condemn anyone merely for being a Christian .

Philip France

Robert the Reprobate says: "Many evangelical Christians DO want theocracy, or something dangerously close to theocracy in America even though they dney it ." I say: Name ONE.

Robert the Reprobate says: "There HAVE been Christian theocracies in Europe, such as Spain during the Inqiuisition" I say: Name ONE. Even during the Inquisition Spain had a secular monarchy. You cannot make up history, you fool.

Robert the Reprobate says: "Not everyone agrees on what is moral ." I say: That is why The Holy Bible, the word of the Most High God is the standard by which morality is determined. Without God's word, morality is no different than preferring chocolate over vanilla. This is why you are such a fool.

Robert the Reprobate says: "The intolerance of evangelicla Christians to those hwo do not share their narrow and rigid religious views is NOT moral ." I say: What do you know about evangelical Christians? Would you even know one if you saw one? Evangelical Christians and religious Jews are the MOST tolerant people on the planet. We championed abolition and emancipation of slavery while it was those of your worldview that opposed it. That's right - it is you that is the racist and intolerant bigot. When has a religious Christian or Jew blown up a mosque or set off a bomb in a public place? Obama's pals Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn have. You share their worldview. You and those of your ilk have more in common with monsters such as Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Fidel, Kim Jong Il and Robert Mugabe than you do with Locke, Jefferson, Madison and Washington.

Robert the Reprobate says: "I have no desire or intention to deprive people of their civil rights merely because they happen to be homosexual." I say: If you had ever bothered to read the U.S. Constitution and endeavored to understand it then you would know that homosexuals have every civil right equally with heterosexuals.

Robert the Reprobate says: "I do dislike SOME of them,not because they are Christians, but because they are appallingly nasty, mean-spirited, ignorant, foolish, intolerant and self-righteous people." I say: Name ONE. I also ask: What is "appallingly nasty, mean-spirited, ignorant, foolish, intolerant and self-righteous" about leading a fellow human being to the new birth and to eternal life? What have YOU ever done to top that?

Robert the Reprobate, you are an overgrown child. You are socially and politically no mature than a six year-old. Why do you bother to continue to demonstrate your ignorance at an otherwise august web site?

Rev Michael Bresciani

Oh C'mon,

People who go by the book (Bible) are not espousing a "viewpoint" or some contrived morality put in place by Christians consenting together to make it a rule.

It is the inspired, God given mandate of the creator God who has labeled all forms of homosexuality a perversion that is an abomination.

If you don't believe in God then it follows that this will mean nothing to you, but for those who do it is the will and counsel of God and will be followed to the letter. It is no longer, and perhaps it never was, about Christians rejecting homosexuals, but now it is about gays rejecting God and anyone who chooses to follow and obey him.

My advice stop whining.

Amen

Obama and Bill Ayers barely know each other. They served for a time on the same committee at a University in Chicago, and that is the extent of their relationship. Yet the appallingly dishonest right-wing media has lied through its teeth and made it look as though Obama is a close associate and follower of over the hill 60s radical terrorists, which is idiotic .
The Puritans in New England had a Christian theocracy . In Spain at the etime of Columbus, Jews had three options; convert to Catholicism , leave or be executed .
What the Bible says about homosexuality is nothing but ancient superstition. Yet so many Christians use this stupid ancient superstition as an excuse for bigotry against homosexuals .
According to the right in America -"All men are created equal-except for homosexuals. They don't want gays ot serve in th emilitary, join the Boy Scouts, get married to each other, and many don't want them to be allowed to teach in public schools . DOMA is nothing but a smokescreen for the bigotry of the right in America. marriage does not need to be defended - it's the rights of gay Americans which are threatened,not marriage . Phil, you are an appallingly ignorant, narrow-minded,intolerant and self-righteous jerk .I don't hate you. I hate your narrow-mindedness and intolerance .

Philip France

Robert the Reprobate says: “Obama and Bill Ayers barely know each other.” I say: Liar. Obama’s political career was launched in the filthy terrorist’s living room. What about Rashid Khalidi? Dalia Mogahed? Van Jones – card-carrying Communist who Obama appointed as “Green Jobs Czar”? Who is the ignorant one here?

Robert the Reprobate says: “The Puritans in New England had a Christian theocracy .” I say: What history books have you read? The ones written by admitted liar Howard Zinn?

Robert the Reprobate says: “In Spain at the time of Columbus, Jews had three options; convert to Catholicism , leave or be executed .” Yes, this was a despicable chapter in the history of the Roman Catholic church. You have to go back more than five hundred years for such an example when today leaders of your worldview are torturing, starving and murdering their fellow human beings in Cuba, Venezuela, Zimbabwe and North Korea.

Robert the Reprobate says: “What the Bible says about homosexuality is nothing but ancient superstition.” I say: You have never read The Bible, moron. Here is what The Bible says: (KJV) Romans 1:24: “Wherefore God also gave them (homosexuals and people like Robert the Reprobate) up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: (25) Who changed (the proper translation should be exchanged) the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature (“creation”, i.e. environmentalists) more than (should read “rather than”) the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections (such as sodomy, fisting, analingus – what is “gay” about that?) for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature (lesbianism): (27) And likewise also the men leaving (having forsaken) the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another: men with men working that which is unseemly (shameful) and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet (appropriate). (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate (devoid of sound judgment) mind, to do those things which are not convenient (not proper or fitting).”

Robert the Reprobate said: “DOMA is nothing but a smokescreen for the bigotry of the right in America”. I say, people of the right could care less whether you and your bath house buddies sodomize each other into kingdom come. We don’t care if you form a civil union. What we DO care about is the tradition definition of marriage and its defense as the foundational unit of civil society. Homosexuals CANNOT achieve this in and of themselves. Many of us rightfully want to keep homosexuals away from our children. This is not to say that all homosexual men are pederasts and/or pedophiles, but it logically follows that odds of this are increased exponentially.

Furthermore, up until the early 1970’s, homosexuality was listed in the Diagnostic Statistic Manual as a mental disorder. Homosexual activists stormed the APA convention and protested, threatening with violence to have it removed. The APA caved, NOT based on scientific evidence or peer-reviewed studies, but to pressure and the threats of violence (which is always how people of your ilk get their way, that and deceit).

Robert the Reprobate said: “Phil, you are an appallingly ignorant, narrow-minded,intolerant and self-righteous jerk .I don't hate you. I hate your narrow-mindedness and intolerance .” I say: Coming from you, that is a badge of honor. You did not answer my previous question. I stated that I have led many of my fellow human beings to the new birth in Christ and to eternal life. What have YOU ever done that comes close to that? I also noticed that you did not challenge my assertion that you are no more socially nor politically mature than a six year-old. Nor did you attempt to address my observation that you and those of your worldview have more in common with Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot, Hugo Chavez, Robert Mugabe and Kim Jong Il than you do with Locke, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Hamilton, de Tocqueville, etc.

More insane,ignotant, bigoted and fanatical ranting from Phil . I'm not gay myself . I just believe in gay rights and deplore homophobic bigotry . Pat Robertson. David Barton, Rick Perry,Michele Bachmann, Jim De Mint, Bradlee Dean, Scott Lively, Matt Barber,Peter La Barbera and others of that unholy alliance of the political right and the religious right are evil,fanatical,hypocritical, bigoted and ruthless scum who even though they deny it, want to turn America into an evangelical Christian theocracy where innocent people who had never harmed anyone would be persecuted by our government merely for being gay, where poor pregnant women would die every day at the hands of back-alley abortionists and the poorest would kill themselves with coat hangers, also because there would be no help for them to provide for their children,born or unborn,
kids in school would be forced to [participate in CHRISTIAN prayer and sit through Bible readings every day even if they came from Jewish,Muslim,Hindu,Buddhist ,atheist or agnostic homes, taught the idiotic ignorance of creationism as scientific fact, the police could arrest you an dhave you put in jail for owning somethign as innocuous as a Playboy magazine, the government would be free to pry into the bedroom of nay and every America etc , where those out of work would be left to fend for themslves, only those hwo could afford it could get a college, graduate ,medical or legla education, only those hwo could pay for medical care would get it ,etc. Non-christians would be second class citizens . Presidents and other politicians etc would be sworn in not by swearing on the Bible to uphold the constitution, but swearing on the constitution to uphold the Bible. I and many other Americans would not want to live in an America like this . But thgis is exactly what the religious right wants . They are the American Taliban.

Robert the Reprobate declares himself to be an utter moron. You cite no facts, no quotations, nothing of use - only your wretched opions.

Why do you vomit your moronic opinions at an otherwise august web page? It would be as if you invited me into your home and I rewarded your invitation by defacating on your coffee table.

Please go away. No one that visits this site earnestly wants to hear from you. Frankly, you should seriously contemplate suicide, you are THAT miserable.

Philip France

Robert the Reprobate, you believe the things that you believe because Joe Stalin wanted you to believe the way that you do. You are an ignorant fool who swallowed his whole playbook.
