"The Last Refuge", "Conservative Treehouse" blog moderates AND changes comments!

This just won't stand. I don't suffer moderation very well.

I haven't spent all that much time reading "The Last Refuge", AKA "Conservative Treehouse" very often, except when something there is linked from somewhere I do spend time (e.g., Protein Wisdom).

This post by "Sundance", linked to from comments in pw...

BINGO !! – Maybe Obama’s Just Trying To Stack Inner City School Chess Club’s…

..is simply a run-of-the-mill, offhand post built around a photo of some of the so-called refugee 'Children' streaming across our borders. Not kids at all, but seemingly gang members, MS-13 sorts. Not the kind of immigrants we want to encourage, and certainly well-fitting the "alien immigrant" designator.

No problems there.

Further down in comments, an offensive, slimy thing by "vikingbitch", reblogged from a post at  "vikingbitch's Blog" (AKA blondegynocyde dot wordpress dot com (!)).

So, I left a comment, calling him / her out on it's anti-Semitism. I pointed out the problems with any one human thinking, because of skin color or nationality, that s/he is any better than another human configured to look differently. Because both humans are but decanters of souls. Passed out at conception, btw.

The comment I left was hung in moderation. I know better than to just walk away, leaving my poor comment all stretched out for none to see, so I took a screenshot of the comment I responded to, and of my comment, responding.

Because I have this blog, not used so much anymore, but certainly good enough for exposing moderation, and...eh, wot? a possible nest of White Supremacists ?

Conservative Treehouse Blog AKA The Last Refuge, are you attracting - harboring White Supremacists?

No wonder Conservatives can't have nice things!

Here's the screenshots. You can be the judge...

There you have it.

"Sundance", you care to respond? You'll go into moderation, sure, but likely you'll get through.

'Splain yourself!


Threw down the gauntlet.

Just shakin' the Tree, is all.

Various sundries 2

Posting some image manipulations only, much like the first time.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen helps out his friends Lois Lerner and Barack Obama.


Hillary Clinton and Madeleine Albright, finely feathered. 

Knowing why these referent quotes conform is left as an exercise for the gentle reader.
As is procuring the necessary Eye Bleach..

"Arab Spring is over. Welcome to Jihadi Spring."

Just get the timing right, please.

Police Brutality Sucks. 

Paging Colin Powell?

Not so much worried about Senator John McCain, his rants or his thoughts (Got Aricept?) as I am about Colin Powell's lack thereof.

Recall Colin Powell? That same retired General and Secretary of State, who supported Bush and the GOP until a Black man came along, then he jumped to the Democrats' Obama Camp of far-Left Failure?

Where are you on this Iraq debacle, Colin Powell? Why so quiet? Not a peep, not even a whimper?

Silence, because you'd have to criticize Barry Hussein, who hasn't had a commendable foreign policy success in 6 years?

Barack Obama, teamed with Hillary Clinton, John Kerry (and windup toy Slo-Jo Biden), have performed what's tantamount to the "Greatest Clown Show on Earth" in conducting Affairs of State. And that's speaking nicely.

With his silence, Colin Powell damns this Administration. As does any real American.

Invasion Happy America

Put this 'chop together for TAG's 'Anti-Anti-Gun Agitprop Contest' (h/t geoffb).

Now, shouldn't I be working somewhere? There's only 86 Million people working, to support 148 Million deadbeats Democrats. I've got to get busy!


Oh...One more.

Harry Reid would like to kill patriots and bury us in the desert. Just to be rid of us evil domestic terrorists, you know...

Cheers! for reals this time!

“Dastardly pings! Curses, foiled again!”

Everyone else is speculating as to the fate of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Might as well get my two-cents-worth in. This is assembled from my comments to a post on pw. These remarks assume you've followed the story closely.

One variant of a scenario geoffb linked above might explain the lack of passenger participation (using their cell phones or other devices to attempt to establish post-takeover communications). If induced gradual oxygen deprivation via non-explosive cabin depressurization was employed by one or more hijackers who had oxygen masks, then all the passengers would be conveniently dead soonest. Re-establishing cabin pressurization would allow the hijacker(s) to collect and destroy communication-capable devices.

That variant would also explain the rambling flight patterns between the checkpoints: the pilot furiously searching passengers and their carry-ons for devices.

(The pilot - hijacker(s) disabled the aircraft's telemetry equipment, then diverted it well out of it's intended path; likely to prevent any tracking, or the finding the wreckage and thereby have the good guys working to solve the mystery: whodunnit? Who gets bombed to glass this time?)

But they missed disabling the data pings from the engines or other on-board sources. Perhaps they weren’t aware they even pinged.

My best guess is that the hijacker(s) learned much from the Lockerbie failure.

The Pan Am Flight 103 Lockerbie explosion was intended to take place over the ocean, making wreckage recovery and subsequent identification of the responsible party impossible; but instead, it happened over Scotland. That led to the subsequent bombing of Gaddafi's Libya, and the killing of his daughter. So, lesson learned, that wasn't going to happen again.

If the scenario I postulated above happened, after all devices were rendered inoperable, the jet's fuel near-exhausted, the plane was then pointed straight down and accelerated to eleven. That would account for the the 40,000-foot drop in less than a minute, as was reported by the engines.

Is there a deep trench in the Indian Ocean? That’s where they needs search.

Oh. Sunda Trench...
...is located in the northeastern Indian Ocean, with a length of 2,600 kilometres (8,500,000 ft). The maximum depth of 7,725 metres (25,344 ft) (at 10°19′S, 109°58′E, about 320 km south of Yogyakarta), is the deepest point in the Indian Ocean. The trench stretches from the Lesser Sunda Islands past Java, around the southern coast of Sumatra on to the Andaman islands...
Andaman islands, you say?
The suggestion -- and it's only that at this point -- is based on analysis of radar data revealed Friday by Reuters suggesting that the plane wasn't just blindly flying northwest from Malaysia. Reuters, citing unidentified sources familiar with the investigation, reported that whoever was piloting the vanished jet was following navigational waypoints that would have taken the plane over the Andaman Islands.

The radar data don't show the plane over the Andaman Islands, but only on a known route that would take it there, Reuters cited its sources as saying.
If the hijacker(s) intended to escape the Pan Am Flight 103 - Lockerbie scenario, they would put the plane out of reach of searchers. Deep and forgotten.

“Dastardly pings! Curses, foiled again!”

Iran hardest hit.

Eugene Robinson's triumphalism over "12 Years a Slave"

I left this comment for Mr. Robinson's article that can be found here.

Eugene, people knew already that the United States had this problem 'growing up', and that slavery was an intolerable condition that existed when this nation was founded. During the Civil War, there was considerable blood shed banishing slavery from the USA. Not since that war have Americans shed as much blood for any cause, as was shed for the banishing of slavery. Most of that blood was spilled by whites.

Today, we still have that scar - no, a barely-healed scab. And the picking at it by the Democratic Party's official 'race hustlers' (who, granted, need some way to make a living) doesn't promote a true healing process. Your glowing sense of triumphalism over this film's "uncomfortable truth" and your hope that scholars can dig up even more award-winning historic moments to endlessly parade in our collective faces does nothing but dig at that ugly scab, and serves but to further divide this Republic, at a time when that dividing is increasingly dangerous.

Should we, as a nation, forget about slavery? No. Should we gouge open these scabbed-over wounds forever, going forward, when doing so might perhaps cause yet more bloodshed, for whatever end result you imagine (but fail to even begin to elucidate) is better than simply letting time heal us all?

In these increasingly divisive times, when many people see our nation again rending along racial and political lines (somehow those lines are kept neatly parallel, if not perfectly conjoined), and again perhaps headed towards another, even more deadly Civil War, these scab-diggings you are trumpeting as good and proper are not at all helpful.

Gator's Dockside and Democratic Party Butt-Hurt

Most businesses will simply pass along the cost of ACA - ObamaCare to their customers without pointing out why yet another sudden price increase happened. Pointing out up front that this cost inflation was caused in response to new unfunded mandates and regulations imposed by Big Government (specifically, by the Democratic Party) is a good thing. I applaud Gator's Dockside Inc. for their forthrightness, and for causing a bit of butt-hurt to Democrats.

If more companies do the same thing, there will be more consumers aware of how the odious battering ram known as ACA - ObamaCare causes across-the-board cost increases to all businesses, therefore putting inflationary pressures on our economy, and that these cost increases will be passed along to every consumer.

Not to mention that all of these new costs are coming right at the worst time possible: when our economy, already reeling from a recession that Mr. Obama cannot seem to help end, is further bludgeoned by his and his Party's decision to cram more nonessential and not-Constitutionally-mandated government regulations and their associated costs down everyone's throats.

Democrats, especially you far-Left "progressives" who now run the once-proud Democratic Party, never do consider the lack of sustainability that will ultimately deny you your Nirvana; the seeking of some heaven-on-earth degree of sustenance and nurturing that fuels your political desires and gives you votes from the unthinking masses that you 'Community Organize' with the lure of 'free' goods and services paid for by Someone Else.

If - no, when - this economy does collapse, you certainly will be held responsible for it, and here's hoping you'll find some nice hole to crawl into, for to hide your miserable faces.

Those pesky Climate Change Deniers? Why, you ask?

Let's just say for kicks and giggles that the Earth's climate is irrevocably warming; then go a great leap further and allow that it's because we humans have burned fossil fuels that've been in locked storage for millions of years (thanks, unknown benefactors!). We are warming up nicely, over time.

Then comes along, just in time to take advantage of this sudden and rather helpful climate change, the denizens of the far-Left. That same order of leftists and Marxists who's ideological beliefs have spawned the worst mass-murderers in human history; men who, when allowed to gain control of nations and fates, have killed more millions of humans than any other ideologically-driven killers in our brief but bloody history (yes, that would be Josef Stalin and Mao Tse-Tung: both leftists, Marxists).

So, after some meek and studious scientists figure out that we, using ever-advancing technology and enjoying increasingly comfortable lifestyles that have lofted our human race to pinnacles never before seen or imagined, are causing Global Planetary Warming.

Next thing we see is that these same brilliant scientists allow a failed, far-Left, head-swollen, non-scientist politician, the venerable Al Gore, to front their work to an incredulous world.

And, somehow, these brilliant scientists blissfully expected everyone to quieten to a hush and listen to sad-sack, failed, far-Left politician Al Gore and his cabin-boy crew of fellow traveler far-Leftists and enviro-mental nut cases, then meekly turn over control of the destiny of Planet Earth and every living human's future to them? Seriously?

Al Gore and his disciples, both the enviro-whackos and a smaller, more-pale group of culti-religio- 'scientists', are barely-checked misanthropes who would all be tickled pink to see a third to a half (or more) of Earth's human population die (or be killed) off, so as to chill their planet.

Listen closely! you can just hear them muttering.. 'Our planet's severe overpopulation of retched humans is the root cause of this befouling Climate Change; their incessant breeding and burning is what's causing our Mother Earth's fever, and so! they must be dealt with! And the sooner, the better!'

Yes, I think it'd be a grand idea to give over control of our destiny to a group of far-Left control freaks who not-so-subtly hate the human race; and who, if given control, would spawn a New World Order of murderous science-dictators to fix all the planet's problems, toot suite.

What could possibly go wrong ?

Fiscal Conservatives, heads up: Why Democrats Hate Christians

Throughout human history, traditionally the first place a person would go for help, sustenance, safety and shelter was with one's family and close community, not Government. Family always came first, then community. Faith-based churches were the bedrock of early communities.

Churches and religion are under assault by the Left, by today's Democrats. Just look around you.

Today's new Democrats prefer and endorse Atheism, because atheists are more easily amenable to State controls. Faith-based churches are (were) made up of groups of people not giving first allegiance to State, but to God; that route to sustenance and safety must be denied and replaced, as Statists progressively move FORWARD.

Our newly far-Democrats (Leftists, Statists, Progressives) assault faith-based religions and churches, and most especially target and hate Christian churches, so as to break up these communities in order to make more people seek State for sustenance.

Without faith in God, without churches and communities, State becomes by default the atheists' and society's first and only source for safety and sustenance.

"Without souls, without God, humans are but animals."

We are all now seen as animals, viewed by these Government-first Statists as needing their Animal Husbandry.

We are needing STATE to provide the things most people would turn to family and faith to provide.

So, fiscal Conservatives, the next time you hear Democrats assaulting faith and religion, doesn't matter if you yourself are agnostic or atheist; know this: their intent is to become our only God.

You should, no matter what belief or lack thereof you personally have, oppose the assault on other people's faiths and religions. Because without people having recourse to churches and faith-based communities, there is only ONE provider left: Big State, Big Government.
