National Christmas Tree Dies


The nation’s economy isn’t the only thing struggling to survive under the oppressive weight of the Obama regime’s willful disregard

The environmental Left has yet to offer a comment. And there is apparently no truth to the notion that Obama’s Calendar Czar is considering using the death of the tree to do away with the Christmas Holiday altogether, and substitute a combination of Winter Solstice and Founder of Great Religion Day instead.

      Yes to the spirit of antichrist within you, anything having to do with Christ must seem horrible. That is the spirit of the age, it is antichrist and must destroy all faith in Him that evil might have full reign and you may, pretending no guilt, indulge your every base appetite – but it is a delusion – judgment will come upon you.

        US al-Qaida official called Catholics ‘fertile ground’ for conversion

        Unfortunately, al-Qaida is likely correct in its strategic military assessment. Historically, Catholics have been so poorly formed and informed and so badly churched that they have been fertile ground for Freemasons, Marxists, abortionists, libertines, atheists, and other devils to plant their seeds.

        I am turning increasingly pessimistic about the continuation of Western Civilization because of the dissipated, relativist, and devalued outlook of our elites, including much of the leadership of the historic churches.

        Confusion and enervation at the top can only lead to loss of identity and commitment from the flock. Islam, in the absolute certainties of its supremacist bigotry and aggressive Anti-reason, offers something to the human heart that The West in its ennui, irrelevance, and lukewarm Truthiness no longer provides.

        I am harshly reminded of Albert Camus’ observation that when men say that they have found reasons worth living for, they really mean they have found reasons worth dying for, each time I read of pious and devout Muslims blowing themselves up for the purpose of slaying other pious and devout Muslims.

        Why do you think God created evil, and, thus, the Antichrist? After all, as you will tell me, God created everything and evil and the Antichrist fall within “everything.” Why do you think God created those things? Why do you think God planned for me to be here tormenting you and calling into question everything you believe by pointing out the fundamental contradictions in all that you choose to believe?

        • Neiman

          1. You are NOT tormenting me, only yourself, because you are a FOOL. You have not pointed out a single contradiction, you have failed miserably if that was your intention.

          2.  When that which is pure exists, in its presence all else is impure. So for perfect righteousness and holiness to exist, all else would by definition and default – be evil. He did not create evil.

          A tiny light exposes the darkness. You use the same old tired ‘God created everything and He created evil’ childishness. To have worthy objects upon which He could pour out His great love and generosity, the very idea demanded that human creation must have freewill, the right to say no to His love. Who would love robots forced to love himself? That freewill will produce evil. God said you can eat of every fruit but one, short of that having every good thing, but freewill demanded that man was free to choose to rebel (evil) and to choose that which is forbidden. Yet, knowing all things, God at the same time prepared a perfect plan wherein He could judge all that evil in a perfect substitute, offering everyone that would accept it – Salvation. So, from beginning to end it was a perfect plan for His human creation and it was man that refused His Love and kindness.

          Your games only expose your gross immaturity and inability to engage in rational discourse, you win nothing and lose every argument thereby.

    The tree is not the “only” casualty…


    Birds of a feather flock together and so when we see Barack Obama stacking
    his cabinet with radicals, it tells us a lot about his mentality. Of course, the
    fact that his entire term in office has been nothing but a slow motion
    evisceration of the American dream should tell you a lot about how he thinks,
    too — but a little more evidence is always welcome.

    Take a look at these quotes from members of Barack Obama’s administration and then ask yourself what sort of man WANTS people like this to help him govern the American people?

    1) “Somewhat more broadly, I
    will suggest that animals should be permitted to bring suit, with human beings
    as their representatives, to prevent violations of current law.” — Cass Sunstein,

    Administrator of the White House
    Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama Administration. Yes,
    we have someone in charge of regulations in D.C. who thinks pigs should be able
    to sue farmers and cats should be able to sue their owners. Do you think it’s a
    coincidence that the cost of business keeps skyrocketing under Obama because of
    all the new regulations?

    2) “Now, people when I say that
    look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have
    to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?’ The answer is yes, that’s what
    I’m telling you.” — Joe Biden, Vice President.

    When this is how the
    Vice President of the United States thinks, is it any wonder that this country
    may only be a decade away from defaulting on our
    debts and heading into an economic death spiral that we’ll never
    recover from in the lifespan of anyone reading this column?

    3) “There’s a different leader
    in Syria now. Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to
    Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer.” — Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State.

    , the butcher of Syria is a real “reformer,” isn’t he? If you want to know why our
    foreign policy has been all bowing, “leading from behind,” and chaos, look no
    further than our Secretary of State who knew nothing about foreign policy going
    in, but made a career out of being married to the right man.

    4) “Though this nation has
    proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have
    always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of
    cowards.” — Eric Holder, Attorney General.

    Eric Holder is a throwback to the bad old days in America, when whether you got justice or not depended on the color of your skin. Is it any wonder he doesn’t care about
    Mexicans or a white border patrol agent who lost his life because of Operation
    Fast and Furious? Is it a surprise that Holder turned a blind eye to the New
    Black Panthers engaging in voter intimidation and putting a bounty on George
    Zimmerman’s head?

    5) “When I became the NASA
    administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — (Obama) charged me
    with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to
    get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international
    relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to
    reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim
    nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science …
    and math and engineering.” — Charles Bolden, NASA Administrator.

    When Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, he said, “That’s one small step for a man; one
    giant leap for mankind.” Well, while Obama goes on and on about
    “investment,” “science,” and “the future,” we’ve actually taken one giant leap
    backwards since we no longer have a manned space program. Guess we needed to
    save that money to funnel into the businesses of people who contribute to
    Obama’s campaign.

    6) “One way to carry out this
    disapproval might be to insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for
    adoption—especially those born to minors, who generally are not capable of
    caring properly for a child alone. If a single mother really wished to keep her
    baby, she might be obliged to go through adoption proceedings and demonstrate
    her ability to support and care for it. Adoption proceedings probably should
    remain more difficult for single people than for married couples, in recognition
    of the relative difficulty of raising children alone. It would even be possible
    to require pregnant single women to marry or have abortions, perhaps as an
    alternative to placement for adoption, depending on the society.” — John
    Holdren, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology.

    So, we have a man with the morals of Joseph Mengele advising the President on
    science. It also shouldn’t be lost on anyone that while Obama is yammering on
    about a “war on women,” he has someone on his staff who has come out in favor of

    7) “Somehow we have to figure
    out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.” — Steven Chu, Energy Secretary.

    Ever wonder why gas prices are so high under Obama? Could it be because Obama’s Energy Secretary wants to dramatically increase the price of gas? Gas is more than $8 a gallon in most of Western Europe.
    Guess that gives them something to shoot for if Obama gets a second term.

    One of the main tools of destruction to kill the Rule of Law and “Spirit of America” is explained well here….


    Around this time of year, I sometimes hear from parents who have been appalled to learn that the child they sent away to college to become educated has instead been indoctrinated with the creed of the Left.

    They often ask if I can suggest something to have their offspring read over the summer, in order to counteract this indoctrination.

    This year the answer is a no-brainer. It is a book with the unwieldy title:
    No Matter What . . . They’ll Call This Book Racist by Harry Stein,
    a writer for what is arguably America’s best magazine, City Journal.

    In a little over 200 very readable pages, the author deftly devastates with facts the nonsense about race that dominates much of what is said in the media and in academia.

    There is no subject on which lies and half-truths have become so much the norm on ivy-covered campuses than is the subject of race.

    Moreover, anyone who even questions these lies and half-truths is almost certain to be called a “racist,” especially in academic institutions that loudly proclaim a “diversity” that is confined to demographics, and all but forbidden when it comes to a diversity of ideas.

        My Estimates:
        $3.5 million for environment impact for removing a dead tree
        $600k for the removal of the tree
        $100 billion for the holiday that federal employees get off to reflect on the loss of the tree

    Good gravy. You guys just love digging your claws over the current administration over the slightest thing, don’t you?

    The tree died from transfer shock. Yes, there are things you can do to prevent/cure it. But sometimes, no matter how careful you are, there is nothing that you can do to prevent the plant from dying.

    And even Rob himself said that there is no apparent truth that they’re trying to due away with Christmas.

    [sarc] “A rabbit was found dead on the White House lawn.” ….. Oh my god! Obama is trying to get rid of Easter! If he can’t take care of a little bunny, how is he supposed to take care of the economy! Rawr! [/sarc] (tag included just for you, Econ and Onslut)

      You’ve overlooked a fundamental aspect of modern America: Everyone is a victim. The atom-splitters of this variety want to believe they are victimized because they are white, male Christians, or, as  I like to call them, “America’s most persecuted super-majority.”

        You’ve overlooked a fundemental aspect of modern liberalism. Every “minority” is a victim. The atom splitters of this variety want to believe they are victimized because they aren’t white, male Christians, or, as people on earth like to call them “Democrats”.

      One of the joys of NOT labeling sarcasm as such is to watch some self-righteous jackass bray with indignant horror that anyone could write such a thing.  Thanks for the chuckle.

  • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

    Only an idiot could posit the notion that an administration responsible for planting a tree would want to kill it.  Further, the reason for it’s demise is an obvious and common one.

    In short, dumb story!
