More on Charlie Gard

Now the London Sunday Times carries an article by Melanie Phillips defending the Great Ormond Hospital in the UK and ridiculing Charlie’s parents. She goes on to blame, without links or citations in context mind you, but only special quotes, from “hysterical American conservatives” and singling out American Thinker for special condemnation — for causing both the parents’ false hopes and the general public outcry over Charlie’s predicament.

You can read more about that here at this article by Daren Jonescu:

Hysterical AT Writers caused Charlie Gard to suffer

Reading through Ms. Phillips’ argument, one gets the sense of the whole emotional argument that Progressives make. It’s based on emotions. Not facts. She can’t even get straight who the argument is between.  She claims the argument was not between the parents and the all powerful State, but between the parents and the hospital. Well, I say, who runs the hospital?! The State!

How is it possible for a truly thinking person to miss that?

We as conservatives have to know the issues and what the true argument is. Progressives are all about emotion and will try to sway society with their rational-sounding debate. I don’t believe they really care about facts, having long ago thrown away absolutes, declaring that all was relative. Now all of their arguments are based on emotion and because they are, their thinking is all muddled and incoherent. Witness the current state of affairs in our news media, who ignore everything else going on to chase after Russia, Russia, Russia, all the time when, as yet, there is no evidence of a crime after all these months, yet they forsake all other stories. Is that rational? No, they hate the President and that is what it is all about.

But I will say this: their arguments based on emotion can sometimes tempt and sound good and true. But we on the other side of the debate cannot fall for it. It is the glittering, shiny deception of something that sounds good and true, but it’s not THE truth, like the serpent (for those who believe the bible) in the garden telling Eve she would not die; she would be like God. Notice it was the tree of GOOD and EVIL they were not to eat from. We cannot lose sight of the real true position. We must maintain a search and love for what the truth is if we are to turn the culture from its socialist death march.

Those who are determined to press on with their emotional arguments, but are undeterred by what the truth is, will progressively regress in their thinking into a muddled mass of incoherence. That is my prediction.

Baby Charlie Gard…what it was really about

Hopefully, you have been following the saga of baby Charlie Gard, taken hostage by the British courts and the British National Health Care System (NHL). We can now say for sure that we have met those infamous Death Panels that show up when the government is paying the medical bills. The government then owns you lock, stock, and barrel. If you think that’s overstating it, you haven’t been following little Charlie’s story. What a cute baby he was too. Our congress had the opportunity to stop our march to this end result this week, but they said, “no” this week.

Because I cannot present the argument any better than Daren Jonescu, I implore you to read his/her posts at the following links. You don’t have to be uninformed, unless you choose to be. Be responsible! The country needs you!

UN demands Australia stop mining coal

UN demands Australia stop mining coal

Watts Up With That?

anthracite coalGuest essay by Eric Worrall

UN climate chief Christiana Figueres has stated that Australia must stop mining coal.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald;

Speaking at a conference in Melbourne on Wednesday, Christiana Figueres drew a parallel between Australia and the oil kingdom [Saudi Arabia] as countries that would need to diversify their economies as the world grapples with global warming.

Ms Figueres said ultimately Australia would have to move away from coal for environmental reasons and changes in global economic patterns. She said nobody was saying this would have to happen overnight, but the transition should be orderly, gradual and progressive.

‘”The science is very clear, there is no space for any new coal,” she said.

Ms Figures doesn’t have any specific advice about how Australia should fill the gigantic hole in her finances, which decommissioning the coal mining industry would create. Perhaps Ms…

Watts Up With That?

Maurice Newman, Chairman Australian Prime Minister's Business Advisory Council Maurice Newman, Chairman Australian Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council

Maurice Newman, the chairman of Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s Business Advisory Council, has accused the UN of attempting to subvert democracy, of attempting to establish a worldwide authoritarian regime, with political power concentrated in the hands of UN officials.

According to Newman;

Why then, with such little evidence [for dangerous global warming], does the UN insist the world spend hundreds of billions of dollars a year on futile climate change policies? Perhaps Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UN’s Framework on Climate Change has the answer?

In Brussels last February she said, “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years since the Industrial Revolution.”

In other words, the…

Words From Winston

On questions of economic law it does not matter at all what the electors think or vote or say.  The economic laws proceed.  (1929)

“All men are created equal,” says the American Declaration of Independence.  “All man shall be kept equal,” say the British Socialist Party.
