DOJ Fights Against Ethics

This is amusing: DOJ fights federal judge's order for lawyers to attend ethics training.  (Well, this is the administration that declared war on the Little Sisters of the Poor. Of course they would be against ethics too)

Should Have Been Expected

The U.S. economy is no longer the most competitive and pro-business in the world, after holding the top spot for the previous three years, according to a comprehensive new survey. (When you elect a man who knows nothing about business or economics, that's what happens.)

The Chinese Crack Down on Christians

Having recognized Christianity as a potential threat to the CCP’s grip on power, Xi could be test-driving religious persecution in China’s Christian heartland before taking the policy nationwide. As we’ve said before, the ongoing persecution is not in China’s national interest; if anything, it may make Christians stronger.

(After decades of persecution under the communists, there are more Christians in China than in the United States and and the faith is growing. Of course, the spiritual forces behind this persecution are demonic. But this assault on Christianity will fail.)

How PC Works

Instapundit had this wonderful quote by Theodore Dalrymple on his blog. It is exacty how political correctness works:

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

The Fastest Growing Faith

350,000 Evangelicals March in World's 'Largest Christian Event' in Brazil.  (World's largest Christian event is not in North America.  Very strong moves of the Holy Spirit in South America, Asia, Africa. The fastest growing faith is not, as the media often says, Islam but Christianity. Islam is the fastest growing crime wave in the world.)

British Christianity Death Watch

Christianity is dying in England, and this explains Rotherham. And Rotherham is a glimpse into the future of England and Europe. A post-Christian society, as Rotherham proved, is a hellhole for children.

More on the Roaring Obama Economy

This week we learned that, for the first time in 130 years, more young adults ages 18-34 are living with their parents than not....  What they’re creating amounts to the Childish States of America. If our national symbols were to be revised accordingly, the bald eagle would have to be replaced with a Teletubby.

(What this is, to be blunt, is a national decline. We're headed downhill. No one is going to call this group "The Greatest Generation.)
