Tuesday Morning News Dump

The battery on my iphone has been draining like crazy lately. I use it as my morning wake up alarm. You can probably figure out where I'm going with this one.

The best thing Rick Perry can do is swing what support he has (meager as it is) behind Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, or Ted Cruz.

41 JJ,

Re: Fiorina praises Islam , 2 weeks after 9/11.

Hope you are here . I followed up on that source and you were correct it is flaky. However., the HP transcript of her speech matches word for word what this purported HP transcript from gatesofvienna.net says.

http://tinyurl.com/o32chov

Gates of vienna appears to be somewhat reputable and credible YMMV. The article was reposted from the original at RenewAmerica.

Here is a partial transcript:



There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.



It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched
from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts.
Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different
creeds and ethnic origins.



One of its languages became the universal language of much of the
world, the bridge between the peoples of a hundred lands. Its armies
were made up of people of many nationalities, and its military
protection allowed a degree of peace and prosperity that had never been
known. The reach of this civilization's commerce extended from Latin
America to China, and everywhere in between.



And this civilization was driven more than anything, by
invention. Its architects designed buildings that defied gravity. Its
mathematicians created the algebra and algorithms that would enable the
building of computers, and the creation of encryption. Its doctors
examined the human body, and found new cures for disease. Its
astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way
for space travel and exploration.

43 I'm still catching up on the last thread.

This was fun, thanks for putting it together.

For all to chew on, here are the slogans of each campaign (the best I can tell from each website):

Trump - Make America Great Again
Bush - All In For Jeb
Cruz - Courageous Conservative, Reigniting the Promise of America
Carson - Heal, Inspire, Revive
Fiorna - We Must Once Again Become a Nation of Limitless Possibility
Rubio - Are You Ready for a New American Century
Walker - Let's Get to Work
Paul - Defeat the Washington Machine

62 I've been trying to figure out the illegals/amnesty/big business link. I think it has something to do with cheap labor, but I also think the Mandarin suite has figured out indigenous Americans just aren't reproducing fast enough to support their earnings estimates. Progs, and to a lesser degree, LIVs have bought into the exploding population myth, and just aren't making babies. It's a HUGE structural flaw in China's economy due to their one child social engineering project. Now China has nothing but lonely sons, as they are killing or exporting their daughters. I seriously wonder if this isn't at the heart of the puzzling alliance between the GOPe and Dems on amnesty.

If you want to be a compassionate person, a SJW, don't do it in the church and be a pastor if you don't believe in God and the Bible..

___________

Summer between my freshman and sophmore year I did an internship. It was unpaid and they worked me pretty damn hard. But I was happy to be there. It was a tough gig to get and the reason I got it was my dad knew someone there and hooked me up. But if they had told me I needed to pay them, I would have done so gladly. Being able to put "Summer Intern at XYZ Company" on my resume when applying to jobs after college was worth 100X more money than if they had paid me minimum wage.

This is part of the progressive playbook to undermine the institutions that make up a traditional society. They control the government, at least the bureaucracy, lower and higher education and can force their ideology on big business through threat, intimidation and law-fare. Religion is next on the agenda. They have been infiltrating the clergy and seminaries for years, and it's only a matter of time before churches either submit to their agenda, or lose their tax free status and get pushed underground.

"There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world."

And so began a mythical, deceptive tale by Carly Fiorina, when she spoke in praise of Islam within a mere two weeks of their bombing of the World Trade Center. The concern is not that she was attempting to deceive others, but that she, a person who aspires to the presidency of the United States, was herself deceived regarding the true nature of Islam, and that she has never retracted her statements.

I'm confident that if Perry had any awareness of the way Steve Schmidt is perceived by the conservative base--you know, Schmidt, the slimy, lowlife weasel who deflected the blame for McCain's 2008 defeat onto Sarah Palin--then Perry would not have hired him. But that's just it: I don't think Perry knew.

A savvy national-level politician seeking the conservative vote would never put Steve Schmidt on his team. Perry's decision to do so was an unforced error, exactly the kind he keeps making over and over again. It's soincredibly frustrating to those of us who see what Perry could be, given the chance.

There was a story on the internet about an Atheist Anglican minister. The Episcopal Church had some man who just resigned from his pulpit because he was serving as a Druid Priest at the same time he was an Episcopal Priest. Then there's the lEpiscopal Priest who insisted she could be both a Muslim and a Christian. The folks at "Stand Firm in Faith" website which is for Orthodox Episcopalians chronicles this stuff.

But you know what, even the Atheists commenting after the article on the UC of Christ pastor thiink he suing to stay is loony.

This, and the way Bernie the commie is being treated, you would think it might be the split in the phony Democrat coalition, but these people really are stupid, and they will keep voting for their Dem candidates for some time now before they figure out just how much they hate each other.*

*They already know they hate the other guys, apparently they lack the awareness of how much the other guys hate them.

169 There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world."

And so began a mythical, deceptive tale by Carly Fiorina, when she spoke in praise of Islam within a mere two weeks of their bombing of the World Trade Center. The concern is not that she was attempting to deceive others, but that she, a person who aspires to the presidency of the United States, was herself deceived regarding the true nature of Islam, and that she has never retracted her statements.

178 Draki,
The problem is not her estimation of nebulous Islamic "greatness".

It's calling Islamic civilization 'great' and ascribing provably false mythical, magical qualities to Islam.

And she did this 2 weeks after the Islamists killed 2000 people in the name of their bloody murder god.

She jumped on the dhimmitude train early.

I went to a church as a kid that was Baptist. Heard a bit of gossip about it a few years ago. Turns out, the pastor (who was the same when I was a kid) had slowly morphed into a Unitarian universalist and wanted to keep the church and turn it away from Baptist. Meanwhile, the land the church was on had been given to them by another church/southernbaptist for the purposes of a BAPTIST church. So there was a bit of fight about whether they could keep the land. (which they ended up doing).

Of course, the church was so degraded by this point (people and coffers), that they had already been selling off pieces of the land for years (what used to be church property hosts a Duncan donuts, a bank and a cell phone tower!). I think they finally had to leave it for financial reasons, although I haven't heard the most recent details.

Sad.

180 For the most part that's true. But you can't really blame colleges for what investment banks and law firms do with regards to hiring practices for internships, can you?

No, I just think the adcom criteria are skewed in favor of rich kids. Which is what they want, because their goal is alumni revenue future and present. Which is also why they are so eager to adopt whatever political fad is in favor - because they thrive on favorable relationships with the politically powerful.
So that's what they are. Their srtudents are the best and brightest of the rich and well connected, the future leaders, carefully indoctrinated into correct thinking.
Meanwhile the best and brightest overall, whose parents weren't rich or savvy enough to get them into shiny extracurriculars, go to lower ranked schools.
Which is what google has been finding out in hiring, I think.

Yeah, but Carly's creeping up in the polls and has doubled her fundraising take in a few weeks since her performance in the second-tier debates put her in the limelight. She might prove a threat to whomever Alan Keyes (of RenewAmerica where the article appears)is backing this cycle.

As an aside, I don't think I've ever seen a politician take the drubbing Keyes did when he debated Obama for the Illinois US Senate seat all those years ago. People keep telling me how brilliant Keyes is but I have yet to see evidence of it.

The church grows when it boldly proclaims the Gospel of Christ and refuses to compromise or comply with anything against it. "We must obey God and not men."

The church shrinks when it tries to focus on "fairness" and "social justice," and "just getting along." When, in fact, it ceases to be the church.

This has been demonstrated repeatedly through the history of the church, yet every time it happens we're again taken by surprise.

How the system "works" is very clearly described in the book "Excellent Sheep" by William Deresiewicz. The idea is to require for admission (or at least heavily reward) things only upper-class students can have, like out-of-country "service" trips, internships with the rich and famous, sports that are usually found in eastern prep schools (water polo, field hockey, lacrosse) and test scores that generally require expensive tutoring. Done properly, no federal rules are violated, and the riff-raff are kept safely off campus.

Maybe you had a bunch of open apps running in the background. When you reboot you are closing all the apps so you'll have better battery life. As you open apps they stay open in the background!, you can shut them down by double clicking the home button and scroll through the open apps by swiping left. Swipe each app up to close the app. You can also go into settings and see if apps are refreshing in the background then you can turn that off on certain apps to increase battery life.

Yes you can because they could put pressure on those businesses to pay at least minimum wage or limit work hours. These aren't small businesses.

But they won't because schools do the same sort of sorting for entrance. If you don't have the time, money, and connections to do some pre-college volunteering, some fields are going to be difficult to get into. For example pre-vet usually requires you to have 100+ hours of work at a vets office before you will even get looked at.

That is why I am now throwing my support to the only candidate that truly supports conservative ideas and the exclusion of corruption and graft from the Federal Government, Hillary Clinton.

If you are still here, my iPhone did the same. Could have it fully charged when went to bed, but would be dead by morning. Had to have it plugged in all night, but if I screwed up and forgot or it unplugged, utter disaster the next morning.

Fixed by resetting phone back to factory settings. Battery charges like new again, my phone stays charged more than a day now, phew!

What you need to do is open iTunes with your phone plugged in, will open your phone in iTunes. Do a full backup of your phone so you save your notes, contacts, photos, etc. It might ask if you want to save your apps too: DO THAT. I did not, big mistake. Then click that you want to restore it to factory, is scary but take the plunge! Then when phone is restored to its pristine baby state, can click on restore backup and all your data will come back.

I'll post this next time you do a morning post in case you did not see. Good luck with your phone!
