So Pilate said to him, “Then you are a king?” Jesus answered,

“You say I am a king.For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.”

Pilate said to him, “What is truth?” 

John 18:37-38a

As Christians mark Good Friday and Catholics around the world at their churches read the exchange between Jesus and Pilate on Truth we saw an example of the question of what is truth from the Miami Herald. Concerning Rebekah Jones she of the Everybody Blog About Rebekah Jones Day and her son.

Apparently Rebekah was a tad worried about some things her son was doing and called police. Police took him into custody.

Immediately Jones decided that Ron DeSantis had her son arrested and proclaimed such to the world.

Now unstable people making wild accusations is one thing but apparently the Miami Herald decided that the chance to attack Ron DeSantis was too good to pass up and thus:

Alas for the Herald there is this thing in twitter these days called community notes that can explain what truth actually is:

And VIOLA the headline at the Miami Herald changed:

Apparently while the Miami Herald didn’t know what “truth” was they could be educated with a bit of help, although the designation of Jones as a “whistleblower” is at best iffy.

Closing thought: Speaking of Pilate and the press here is a headline from

Krugman: even if Trump is innocent, this is justice

As I recall Pilate decided it was the best thing to hand a man he knew was innocent of the charges against him to the mob too.

Update: Hotair has more, it’s worse

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Open government, Prime Minister. Freedom of information. We should always tell the press freely and frankly, anything, that they could easily find out some other way

For two days now the left has been on full attack mode on Tucker Carlson for showing part of the J6 tapes that had been withheld from public view by the Democrat left.

There were a lot of adjectives thrown around by people who should know better but because they have become balkanized, jumped in two feet to express their condemnation at the images shown.

The anger of the left over this assault on their narrative was impressive but the source of these attacks is the fact that there is one word that can’t be credibly used to describe these images:


That’s because those images came directly from McCarthy and furthermore said images, like the origins of the COVID virus, the actions of Harvey Weinstien and even the actions of Jeffrey Epstein were known to many who are now screaming bloody murder over them being seen by you because the problem it poses for them is the same.

They don’t care if J6 wasn’t the insurrection they claimed or if COVID did come from a lab in china funded by Fauci or that Harvey Weinstein was making actresses bang him for parts or even if Jeffrey Epstein was pimping out underage girls for the rich, powerful and connected to use as their playthings. These are facts they’ve known for years and have ignored them or used the false narratives for their own ends.

What they object to is YOU knowing these facts because once these facts are publicly known they have to publicly react to them in a way that at best doesn’t reward them and at worst puts them and their positions at risk.

In other words these facts reveal them for what they are cowards, scum or just indifferent to their fellow man.

Pray for them.

Postscript: This observation from Mr. Hoge is worth noting

At the end of 2020, various friends from around the country asked me for advice about the where to stay in the DC area and the best routes in and out of town. They were all coming for rallies on 6 January. I gave my opinions on accommodations and other logistics—and I advised them to stay away from the Capitol Building and to let Congress do whatever it would do. Given that the Democrats were in control of both houses, it seemed to me that they had some sort of trap set for any demonstrations that strayed onto the turf under their exclusive control.

Thus far, nothing on the surveillance video aired by Fox has surprised me, and I presume the worst is yet to be revealed.

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Let’s look at this objectively. It is a game played for national interests and always was. Why do you suppose we went into it[The EU common market and parliament]?

James Hacker: To strengthen the brotherhood of free Western nations.

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Oh, really. We went in to screw the French by splitting them off from the Germans.

James Hacker: Well, why did the French go into it, then?

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Well, to protect their inefficient farmers from commercial competition.

James Hacker: That certainly doesn’t apply to the Germans!

Sir Humphrey Appleby: No, no. They went in to cleanse themselves of genocide and apply for readmission to the human race.

Yes Minister The Devil You Know 1981

There is a saying that “ignorance is bliss”. I don’t believe that’s true.

Ignorance particularly ignorance of history is a recipe for the making of fatal mistake that have already been made by people again and again and again.

Today I’m watching the 1961 Movie: Judgment at Nuremberg. One of the great movies that available free on Amazon Prime but is highly forgotten. The only living member of the primary cast which was a who’s who of some of the greatest stars of Hollywood is William Shatner who played the aide of Spencer Tracy’s head jurist.

I’d like to play a small clip from the movie: You will need to be signed into Youtube to watch it. If you’re banned from youtube like me you’ll have to watch it on Amazon

They used actual films taken by the allied troops rather than recreating it for the 1961 film. To say there were and are horrible is one of the greatest understatements in history.

And the left calls us Nazi. They do so because we support the 2nd Amendment, because we say there are two genders, because we are willing to define “woman” and because we will not set back and ignore it when babies are slaughtered in the womb but most of all, they call us Nazi’s because we won’t bend the knee to the woke.

I submit and suggest that every time they do so they insult every single person who was slaughtered, who was displaced, who was persecuted and who was occupied by the German forces from 1939-1945 and before. And they disgrace themselves and all of those who fought against this evil in the hopes of making themselves equal to those brave men and women when they are not in the least possible way.

Many are young and ignorant and kept so and might be excused by their ignorance, but not in their staying ignorance.

It is those who know better who are the ones who should be ashamed of themselves, if they had any capability to being so that is.

Mr Shelhammer: But… but maybe he’s only a little crazy like painters or composers or… or some of those men in Washington.

Dr Pierce: Thousands of people have similar delusions living perfectly normal lives in every other respect. A famous example is that fellow…I can’t think of his name. For years, he’s insisted he’s a Russian prince. There’s been much evidence to prove him wrong…but nothing has shaken his story. Is he in an institution? No. He owns a famous restaurant in Hollywood and is a highly respected citizen.

Miracle on 34th street 1947

As we close the new year let me as a person who has worked with, carpooled with, gone to church with and attended political events on the same side with Transgender people explain the position I have concerning the matter a position which I suspect is shared by the vast majority of people.

If an adult person thinks they are Napoleon. Dress like Napoleon, Walks like Napoleon, Talks like Napoleon, and has himself surgically altered to resemble Napoleon even to the point of losing height and weight. That’s they’re business. I can work with him, eat with him, have conversations with him on various matters, even live next to him without incident, because it’s his problem and delusion and not my business. Of course if he asks me, I’ll tell him he’s not Napoleon and suggest he get help. If he’s a friend considering cutting off bits of himself to look more like Napoleon I’ll quietly and privately suggest that it’s a bad and drastic idea and advise against it because that’s what a friend does, but if he goes ahead, I’ll let it go because ultimately it’s his decision and if he wants to live with the consequences, so be it.


If that same adult person who thinks they are Napoleon not only insists that he’s Napoleon but insists that I refer to him as such then he becomes my problem and someone to be scorned ignored and avoided. If he works to amend the laws of the land to compel me and others to say “Vive L’Empereur!” then he must be fought and opposed publicly

Furthermore if he and like minded people convinces teachers in schools or public servants to encourage schools to convince other people’s minor children that they are Ney, Murat, Jourdan or Masséna or any other officer or soldier in Le Grande Armee, and having them act out the same even to the point of encouraging surgery so they can resemble an 18th or 19th century solider pf the French republic or empire without the consent and knowledge of their parents then they become society’s problem and a united effort must be made to expose them, publicly condemn them and expel any such teacher or public servant aiding and abetting such actions from their positions

Frankly the real villains here are not the people with these delusions. Mental illness is, by definition an illness and to a degree limits culpability of one who has such an illness for actions associated with said illness. Of course limited culpability doesn’t give the right of anyone to injure others or force us to not prevent it.

The people who are actually evil here are those who, knowing and recognizing this illness for what it is see such folks as a path to profit, power and position and encourage their delusions for the sake of those goals. Even to the point of traumatic physical and psychological harm to them and others.

Those folks have a lot to answer for. Pray for them.
