Why Do Adults Believe In Fairy Tales?

What do the following all have in common:
Global warming.
The Boston Marathon terrorist bombing.
The Sandy Hook shooting.
An epidemic of rape and sexual assault on college campuses.
The legitimacy of aka Obama’s birth certificate and presidency.
The solvency of the US economy and the authority of the Federal Reserve.
The theory of evolution.
Answer: they are all fairy tales. Fairy tales concocted by elements of our own government and perpetuated with the full cooperation of mainstream media.
There is no global warming. If anything, we have a mild case of global cooling.
There was no terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon.
There was no school shooting at Sandy Hook.
There is no epidemic of rape on college campuses.
Aka Obama’s birth certificate is a proven fraud and he has no legitimacy to the office he holds.
The US economy is tanking by the minute and the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal, nor holds any reserves, does not have the authority to print currency.
The theory of evolution is just that – a theory. There is no evidence to support it, and if it really were true, we would have a fossil record showing distinct evolutionary changes from one species to the next. Such a fossil record does not exist.
And yet, if you stopped 100 random Americans on the street and asked them about the above topics, I’m willing to bet that over 95% of them would say that they believe the official stories regarding these same topics. Why is that?
Why do adults believe in lies, false evidence, and fairy tales?
I have several theories. The first is the power of criticism. It’s said that the number one fear most people have is the fear of public speaking. What that fear really indicates is a fear of public criticism. A fear of being laughed at, particularly on a public stage. Today we are told that anything outside of the “official” story on any topic is delusional thinking. Those who dare to question the official story, as presented by the government and mainstream media, are labeled “conspiracy theorists.”
The term “conspiracy theory” seems to have sprung into being just after the JFK assassination in order to label anyone who questioned the official narrative of that event. Today, there are very few thinking Americans who believe in the “lone gunman” explanation of JFK’s murder. The only ones who do believe in the “lone gunman” theory are those who have never taken the time to study any of the evidence.
Thus, fear of ridicule, of being labeled a “conspiracy theorist,” seems to be at the root of why most Americans believe in fairy tales and lies. They either know the truth, but deny it, or they simply refuse to look at available evidence, because their fear of being criticized is stronger than their desire to embrace reality.
I believe another reason why people choose to believe in fairy tales and lies, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, is because it provides them with an excuse for cowardice. Think about it. If you choose to deny reality, your life is simple. You can go through life eating bad food, watching bed television, and believing everything the mainstream media tells you. Plus you save a ton of time by not educating yourself.
On the other hand, if you choose to learn the truth about the world, and suddenly come face-to-face with the enormous level of deceit, treachery and evil that such a study reveals, now you have a responsibility to do something about it. You can’t just bury your head in the sand. You can’t pretend any longer that the truth doesn’t exist. You now have a duty, both to God and to country, to act on what you know. And that is just too damn frightening for most Americans.
I think most men fall into the second reason for believing in fairy tales, and most women fall into the first. Being called a coward is one of the most insulting things a man can face. Most men will do anything to avoid it. That’s why they deny reality, to relieve themselves of whatever responsibility the truth would require of them. They no longer have to act on what they know, because they choose not to know it. Out of sight, out of mind.
Women seem to fear criticism more than men. (If you doubt this, ask yourself why most women are overly concerned with fashion and style.) For that reason, they tend to deny reality primarily for fear of seeming out of place and different. You can include in this group the gatekeepers of the right, those conservative talk show hosts and leaders who tow the party line on every topic, and refuse to even allow any discussion of the topics above.
In either case, the result is the same. Adults believing in fairy tales.

How to Talk to a Useful Idiot (aka Democrats)

useful idiot

Benjamin Franklin once said, “A person convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.” No truer words were ever spoken. When someone feels their beliefs are right, then in their own mind they are right, no matter how wrong they are. If you present them with logic, facts, or evidence that refutes their belief, they will not only refuse to accept it, they will also hold a grudge against you for making them uncomfortable.

That, in essence, describes the current state of political discourse in our country. If you’ve ever spoken to a supporter of the left, a supporter of the Democratic Party, or a supporter of aka Obama, then you know full well what I’m talking about.

Democrats believe in gun control, despite FBI crime statistics that prove that the more guns a community has, the less crime it has. You can quote the statistics to a Democrat. They won’t believe you. You can show them the statistics. They won’t read them. You can present them with all the facts, evidence and common sense reason you can muster. It won’t do you a lick of good.

Democrats believe in the theory of evolution, despite the lack of a fossil record showing any evidence of one species evolving into another. Democrats believe in the legitimacy of aka Obama despite documented evidence of his use of a fraudulent birth certificate and multiple social security numbers from the state of Connecticut. Not to mention his repeated lies on Obamacare, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Sandy Hook, and the IRS. Democrats believe in the myth of global warming, despite scientific consensus to the contrary. Democrats believe in a whole host of falsehoods and myths. Why?

The answer is because they base their beliefs and their decisions on their “feelings.” And their feelings are formed and influenced by movies, magazines, television, music, advertisements, their teachers and professors, and hundreds of other sources. Aka Obama makes them feel good, so they support him, regardless of how dishonest he is. Guns frighten them, so they support gun control. The idea of God and eternal judgement frightens them more than anything, so they reject Him. The fear that these subjects, and others, stir up in them are so uncomfortable, that Democrats are terrified to even look at any evidence that might cause them the slightest bit of emotional discomfort.

Nothing gets a person’s dander up faster than having their belief systems challenged, and this is especially true when their belief system is founded on emotion and opinion, rather than facts. A person whose belief system is grounded on facts and evidence does not fear opposing viewpoints. In fact, it’s quite the contrary. A man or a woman who understands reality and facts welcomes opposing viewpoints.

On the other hand, those who go through life believing what they WISH were true, or what their FEELINGS tell them might be true, are terrified of opposing viewpoints, and they interpret opposing views as a personal attack on themselves. Because their beliefs are emotionally based they react emotionally.

In fact, the more evidence and facts you give them, the more defensive they become. They’ll call you a bigot, a racist, a homophobe, an Islamaphobe (that’s a made up word coined by the left, by the way), and any other label they can think of. Because they can’t win an argument based on facts and evidence, they resort to name-calling. (Have you ever seen a child whose feelings were hurt scream, “I hate you!”) If Democrats had their way, all opinions counter to their own would be silenced by the state.

Absolute truth no longer exists (to them). It’s no longer taught in home or at school, and it’s no longer promoted in the media, so it simply doesn’t exist. Instead, each individual lives in a state of relative truth. Relative to their own feelings. Someone graduating from a university today with a degree in feminist studies or multiculturalism actually believe that they now know more than the founders of our country who wrote the Constitution.

So how do you talk to such people? The answer is you don’t. At least not directly. Democrats have fragile psyches. In order to communicate successfully with them, a bridge must be left open that allows them a road to retreat and save face. That leaves open communication via alternative channels, such as example, humor, and culture.

It’s been said that if all Christians actually practiced Christianity, then the entire world would convert, and there’s a lot of wisdom in that statement. In order to save our leftist friends, we must show them, through our own lives, the benefit of conservative values. Nothing would do more to win misguided individuals to our side, than the actual practice of those values in our own lives.

(Right along with this thought, is the need for all of us to support those who share our values. And that includes spending our money at businesses that practice conservatism. Every dollar spent on soda is another dollar in the pockets of those who support aka Obama and his transformation of America. Every dollar spent on processed food is another dollar in the pockets of those who would subvert our constitution and betray our country. Every dollar spent on mainstream entertainment, particularly music, movies, television, and anything Disney, is another dollar in the pockets of those who would corrupt our country’s morals and steal our children’s innocence.)

Studies have shown that conservatives live happier, more fulfilled lives, than liberals. Show some of that happiness, spread it around, and your leftist friends will start to wonder what they’re missing.

Humor is another valuable tool in communicating with our leftist friends. People will accept truths, clothed in humor, that they never would otherwise. Reagan was a master of this. The key is that the humor must be compassionate, and not involve ridicule. If you can convey humor without insult in order to make a point, then by all means, do it.

Culture’s influence on society is huge, and the left has used it successfully for decades in order to promote their agenda.

Our leftist friends are influenced by culture and art. Tremendously influenced. People believe what they read far more than what they hear. And they are swayed by movies and television, both consciously and unconsciously. It’s time to swing the pendulum back in the other direction.

John Howard Lawson was a famous Hollywood screenwriter and member of the Communist Party. In his book “Film in the Battle of Ideas”, he wrote: “As a writer do not try to write an entire Communist picture. The producers will quickly identify it and it will be killed by the front office. Try to get 5 minutes of the Communist doctrine, 5 minutes of the party line in every script that you write.”

Lawson also advised writers: “Get that into an expensive scene, a scene involving expensive stars, large sets or many extras, because then even if it is discovered by the front office the business manager of the unit, the very watchdog of the treasury, the very servant of capitalism, in order to keep the budget from going too high, will resist the elimination of that scene. If you can make the message come from the mouth of Gary Cooper or some other important star who is unaware of what he is saying, by the time it is discovered he is in New York and a great deal of expense will be involved to bring him back and reshoot the scene. If you get the message into a scene employing many extras it will be very expensive to reshoot that scene because of the number of extras involved or the amount of labor that would be necessary to light and reconstruct a large set.”

To actors, Lawson said: “It is your duty to further the class struggle by your performance. If you are nothing more than an extra wearing white flannels on a country club veranda do your best to appear decadent, do your best to appear to be a snob; do your best to create class antagonism. If you are an extra on a tenement street do your best to look downtrodden, do your best to look a victim of existing society. . . .”

If you’re involved in culture in any way — a writer, producer, actor, director, cartoonist, artist, singer, anything — then you have a duty to apply the same strategy Lawson recommended. Don’t create art or culture that is 100% conservative, or pro-life, or pro-Christian, but try to get 5 minutes of conservative values into every thing you create.

This tactic can also work in everyday conversation and interaction. Don’t try to sway your leftist friends with a lecture or argument, but throw in little tidbits when appropriate and let them begin to see the truth for themselves. As their eyes gradually open, they’ll think they’ve done it all on their own, and that will be far more effective than if they thought someone else had convinced them.

Remember that many of our leftist friends have been brainwashed since they started school, or even since birth. Many have never been exposed to the truth, or to history that wasn’t rife with revisionism. It’s important to treat them with compassion.

The road ahead of us is long and the journey arduous. It requires patience, long-term planning, and, most of all, leadership.

Global Warming Cultists Rescued

HELICOPTER RESCUE FOR GLOBAL WARMING SHIP TRAPPED IN ICY ANTARCTIC

by WILLIAM BIGELOW

The ironic fate of the Russian ship MV Akademik Shokalskiy, which has been stuck in the Antarctic ice since Christmas Eve, may soon be resolved by a helicopter rescue.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s (AMSA) Rescue Coordination Centre, supervising the rescue, said early Thursday that rescue flights would likely begin soon.
As National Geographic admitted, the mission of the scientists on board was to prove the validity of global warming by comparing the evidence they found with evidence from Australian explorer Douglas Mawson’s 1911 to 1913 voyage to Antarctica. National Geographic wrote:

The current crop of explorers are hoping to document some of the same data and compare them to Mawson’s numbers, “using the twist of modern technology,” Turney told National Geographic earlier this month. As may be expected, global warming might play a role in this, he suggests, particularly with respect to melted ice in the East Antarctic.

The irony of a ship meant to document the validity of global warming getting trapped by the undiminishing ice of Antarctica is obvious.
Three icebreaking ships attempted to break through the ice: the Australian icebreaker Aurora Australis, the Chinese-flagged vessel Snow Dragon, and France’s L’Astrolabe. The Snow Dragon’s helicopter on board is planning to rescue 52 scientists and tourists, a dozen at a time, over a five-hour time period. The trapped ship’s 22 crew members will stay with the ship, as there is no danger of its sinking and plenty of food for the duration.
Chris Turney, the leader of the trapped expedition, had claimed that the ice shelf of Antarctica was shrinking for some time; even after the ship was trapped in the ice, Fox News reported Turney “…remained adamant that sea ice is melting, even as the boat remained trapped in frozen seas.”
There are some problems with Turney’s scenario. NASA’s satellites have measured global temperatures for 35 years, including in the Antarctic, and found that the southern polar region temperatures have cooled -0.04°C/century. Not only that, but the Antarctic sea ice has grown to a record total.
The Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) issued a press release that indicated “sea ice in the Southern Ocean has reached the highest extent in the last decades. It was only in the mid-1970s that a similar sea ice extent had been observed.” The Cryosphere released a paper stating that Antarctica has been gaining surface ice and snow accumulation for the last 150+ years.

Senator: Sports Stadiums ‘at Risk from…Sea-Level Rise Effects of Climate Change’

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) warns sports stadiums are at risk from the “sea level rise effects of climate change,” and that climate change specifically threatens hockey and skiing.
“We see significant sports facilities, the palaces of – of sport that are at risk from the storm, climate, sea-level rise effects of climate change,” Sen. Whitehouse said today following a closed-door climate discussion with executives from the NFL, NHL and NBA.

He said the threat to hockey is that people will no longer be able to play outdoors on frozen ponds:
“Without cold enough weather for frozen ponds, the kind of hockey that you play out of doors with your friends gets a little bit harder to achieve.”
Whitehouse also suggested climate change will prevent his family from continuing to go skiing in Rhode Island:
“I took my kids skiing at Yawgoo Valley ski slopes in Rhode Island. The New York Times recently reported that we can expect all the ski slopes in Connecticut and Massachusetts to be gone.
“Obviously, given Rhode Island’s location, if that’s true of Connecticut and Massachusetts, that will also be unfortunately true of Rhode Island.”
The senator is no stranger to such Chicken Little scare tactics. In May 2013, Whitehouse blamed Republican inaction on climate change for deadly tornados in Oklahoma.

NASA: UARS Could Still Hit US


Last week, I posted about a used-up climate probe satellite known as UARS that NASA expected was going to reenter the Earth’s atmosphere sometime around today.
It appears its descent has now slowed somewhat, and may not come down until later tonight or possibly sometime tomorrow, which is when NASA had once thought was the most likely date of its return.
NASA is also saying that there is a chance it could come down somewhere here in America, although they are still not sure exactly where it will fall.
Of course, given this satellite’s mission, I’m still pulling for the roof of Al Gore’s mansion.  😉
As a hopeless space junkie, I have seen meteors streak across the sky many times, but I have never seen something man-made and the size of a school bus reenter the atmosphere live and in person.
That would be really cool to see.

What Goes Up Must (Eventually) Come Down

 
Mir reentry March 2001
NASA satellite UARS, launched in 1991 and deactivaed in 2005,  is expected to reenter Earth’s atmosphere on or about the 23rd of this month.
A satellite reentry is not usually big news, and this one really is not either, other than perhaps its large size, which is said to be about that of a school bus.
What caught my eye when reading the Space.com article linked above was NASA’s explanation as to what had degraded its orbit:

NASA spokeswoman Beth Dickey confirmed with SPACE.com earlier today that the reason UARS is expected to fall early in its re-entry window is because of the sharp uptick in solar activity. Solar effects from the sun can create an extra drag on satellites in space because they can heat the Earth’s atmosphere, causing it to expand, agency officials have said.

LOL – But hasn’t James Hansen and his crew of NASA “scientists” been telling us all along that it was our SUVs and light bulbs that were warming Earth’s atmosphere?
There is one further tidbit of interesting, if not a little ironic information concerning UARS:
It is a climate probe satellite that was launched during the ozone scare.

Where did Agenda 21 come from daddy? Well, honey, it all started with a man named Maurice Strong

Canadian internationalist and Rockefeller errand boy, Maurice Strong, is the father of Agenda 21.  This plan has been in the works since the early 1970s;  premised on climate change, the old Rockefeller hobby horse — population control, redistribution of wealth and social justice. ~LTG
