Buchanan On Trump…and Much More

Pat Buchanan is a very strong conservative whose views on domestic and world politics should not be taken lightly.

It is difficult to know the truth about all of his concerns in this article. However, I would be remiss if I did not enjoin you to evaluate them for yourselves.

As America’s Indiginous Religion Goes, So Goes America!

May 5, 2014

As America’s indigenous Religion Goes, So Goes America!

I began researching the decline of American culture and civilization in the early 1980’s. As a psychologist my sad findings were viewed from  biological, social, anthropological and psychological perspectives. Later, I incorporated philosophical, economic and political perspectives. Within the last 15 years or so, my search for understanding extended to world historical perspectives.

World history and to a lesser degree, the anthropology of cultural decline, have finally revealed what I have not found in the other sciences.

I am a slow learner, I confess, and I am now shaken by what has been obvious to many historians and perceptive intellectuals.  This is the perception that sociocultures based upon great religions have always naturalistically organized, focused and powered all of the biopsychosocial mechanisms that I have studied all of my adult life in productive directions.

The simple will and design of humans have always paled and failed in comparison.

At a personal level, I am deeply saddened and made fearful of the future for my children and grandchildren in America.

Though my abiding  tendency has always been toward optimism. My study of world history is weakening this spirit.

In his book, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?, Patrick Buchanan quotes British scholar, Christopher Dawson: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Dawson

“Christopher Dawson, too, warned that should the West lose its Christian faith, its culture would fragment and its civilization would disintegrate”:

‘It is the religious impulse which supplies the cohesive force which unifies a culture and civilization. The great civilizations of the world do not produce the great religions as a kind of cultural by-product…the great religions are the foundations upon which the great civilizations rest. A society which has lost its religion becomes sooner or later a society which has lost its culture.’

Buchanan continues:

“For centuries, Christianity offered the peoples of the West and the world common ground on which to stand. For this is a faith that accepts all men and women of all races, countries, and continents and all walks of life without regard to lineage, language, culture, color, or past conduct. Acting on their beliefs, Christians abolished human sacrifice in the Americas, ended the Atlantic slave trade, and halted the indian practice of suttee: burning widows on the funeral pyres of dead husbands.

The abolition of slavery and the promotion of civil rights were the causes of Christian pastors who demanded that their flocks live up to Christ’s teaching as enunciated in the Sermon on the Mount about how they ought to treat their fellow man. Christianity is a universal faith. Its death leaves a nation bereft of a unifying system of beliefs. In the absence of Christianity, individuals see community in attachments like race, tribe, party, and ideology that must inevitably separate us.

With the rejection of Christianity and its moral code by hundreds of millions in the West and scores of millions in America, we have no common moral ground on which to stand. The matters on which we clash multiply. Now we fight not only over politics and economics but over abortion, embryonic stem cell research, homosexuality, assisted suicide, public displays of religious symbols, the teaching of evolution, and what children should and should not be taught about God and morality in public schools.”

“Culture wars are rooted in irreconcilable beliefs about what is right and wrong, moral and immoral”…..

….”If we no longer agree on what is right and wrong, we can never be one people again”.

Wake-Up America!

“Suicide Of A Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”

April 24, 2014

 “Suicide Of A Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”

I have read several books that “get it”. Pat Buchanan minces no words and his historical perspective and strong documentation of the facts are a powerful wake-up-call to America’s intelligent citizenry.

America’s Western Socioculture is in far greater peril than most people understand. The average American citizen behaves like cattle lined-up, content and oblivious, steadily moving toward their slaughter.

Don’t be one of them! Read this book and vote the progressive, socialists and communists in disguise, out of political office and keep them out. They are the agents of our National ruination.

You must read this book and act accordingly.

“State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America”

April 24, 2014

“State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America”

The title of this blog is actually the title of Pat Buchanan’s 2006 book. The mechanisms of America’s suicidal immigration policies, or lack of same, are factually documented in this blockbuster expose’ of our own Western Culture’s conquest and transformation by immigration.

I assure you that this book is not out-of-date with regard to the basic mechanisms of this particular force (among many) of America’s rapidly unfolding destruction.

You must vote only for leaders, at all levels of government, who will work to close our borders to illegal immigration and then move to legislate a moratorium on all immigration until America can find ways to stabilize and reverse its own state of rapid decline.

Please get and read this book immediately.

“Western Suicide–Liberalism”

August 30, 2010

Western Suicide–Liberalism”

Ok, it is not the easiest read. But then defending America has never been an easy job. Take the time and effort to read and understand the following article by  Pat Buchanan.

V. Thomas Mawhinney, Ph.D.  8/30/10

Where are the Republican leaders who will reject pandering and prejudice?” wailed The Washington Post in its most recent editorial in support of Cordoba House mosque near Ground Zero.

Like the controversy over the mosque, the Post editorial reveals the two Americas we have become, uncomprehending of and hostile to each other, even as we drift apart.

To the Post, opposition boils down to three arguments, all of them “objectionable.” The first is a wrong-headed belief “that the terrorists who destroyed the World Trade Center and killed almost 3,000 people there in 2001 really did represent Islam.”

The second is that, as many families of 9/11 victims associate the terrorists with Islam, to build a mosque near the scene of the massacre would be sacrilegious and wounding.

The third is cynical politics. As two-in-three Americans oppose the mosque, siding with them and savaging supporters of Cordoba House is to run unconscionably with the crowd.

None of these arguments is acceptable, says the Post, for they represent misunderstanding, prejudice or “repugnant” politics.

What the Post is saying is that opponents of the mosque are all either bigoted ignoramuses or political panderers.

Quite a statement, when a Time poll finds that 61 percent of Americans oppose the mosque and 70 percent believe that to build it near Ground Zero would defile hallowed ground.

“(T)he right response to misunderstanding and prejudice,” said the Post, “is education, not appeasement.”

In short, rather than yield to ignorance, bigotry and demagoguery, the Post will undertake to tutor us on how to think correctly.

This is a pure extract of liberal ideology. Few better examples of faculty-lounge obtuseness to the feelings of the people among whom they live are to be found. Yet, the editorial has a point.

For, in Webster’s, there are several definitions of “prejudice.”

The most pejorative one is “an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, a group, a race.” Another definition, however, is simply a “preconceived judgment or opinion.”

It is this idea of prejudice that Edmund Burke endorsed:

“Many of our men of speculation, instead of exploding general prejudices, employ their sagacity to discover the latent wisdom which prevails in them. If they find what they seek, and they seldom fail, they think it most wise to continue the prejudice, with the reason involved, than to cast away the coat of prejudice, and to leave nothing but the naked reason.”

“Naked reason,” pure rationalism, permeates the Post editorial, which ignores that vast realm of sentiments, such as patriotism and love, that reside in the terrain between thought and feeling.

“The heart has reasons that the mind knows not,” said Pascal.

True conservatives are people of the heart who use the weapons of the mind to defend the things of the heart.

Why would Americans be reflexively skeptical and wary of Islam?

We were born a Christian nation, an extension of Christendom. For most of us, it is part of our DNA. And for a thousand years, our ancestors fought a war of civilizations with Islam.

In the name of Islam, Muslim fanatics massacred 3,000 of us. In our media, the names commonly associated with Islam are al-Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah, Moqtada al-Sadr, Ahmadinejad, Ayatollah Khomeini, Osama bin Laden and the Taliban.

What are sins in Christianity — adultery and homosexuality — are capital crimes in Islamic countries. From the Copts in Egypt to the Chaldeans of Iraq, Christians are persecuted and purged in the Middle East. Few remain in the old Christian towns of Jerusalem, Nazareth and Bethlehem. Christian missionaries in Islamic countries risk stonings and beheading. Muslims are attacking Christians in Nigeria, Sudan, the Caucasus, Palestine, Iraq, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Are there scores of thousands of patriotic American Muslims, hundreds of millions of decent, peace-loving Muslims around the world?

Undeniably true.

Yet one would have to be obtuse not to understand that a Western nation that opens its doors to mass migration from the Islamic world is taking a grave risk with its unity and identity.

An apprehension about that is what Burke called the “latent wisdom” of a people.

This is not an argument for war with Islam, but for recognition that “East is East and West is West” and America cannot absorb and assimilate all the creeds of mankind without ceasing to be who we are.

Prejudice is prejudgment. And if prejudgment is rooted in the history and traditions of a people, and what life has taught us, it is a shield that protects. Only a fool would reject the inherited wisdom of his kind because it fails to comport with the ideology of the moment.

“Prejudice,” wrote Burke, “is of ready application in the emergency; it previously engages the mind in a steady course of wisdom and virtue, and does not leave the man hesitating in the moment of decision, skeptical, puzzled and unresolved.”

Without prejudice, we are tabula rasa, blank slates, upon which any ideology may be written, including what James Burnham called the ideology of Western suicide — liberalism.
