UPDATE: Brittius will be back as Brittius.wordpress.com

Crazy day, renewed .com name but the blog traffic is going to a previous blog edition that was hacked and destroyed. Sent a request to WordPress for help but do not know if any help is coming (typical Wp); Entered Open ID on dashboard for Brittius.wordpress.com, so hopefully things will get back to normal and straightened out. If not, will have to suspend blogging until everything gets fixed.

Hey, that’s my reward for renewal at WordPress.

FEATURED: ‘ The Syrian People Deserve Peace, but Are Plagued by Hypocrisy ‘

Ace News Services

#AceGuestNews – Nov.01: Concerning the Syrian government it is too often suggested that toppling Bashar al-Assad will bring about a peaceful resolution. The potential ramifications of such an action are never fully considered.

A vacuum in the Syrian presidency is declared a necessary phase of conflict resolution, without addressing the impending challenges the vacuum would breed. Statelessness is not an environment in which a unified, secular, or tolerant society can emerge, yet nation-building through regime change continues to be the standard course-of-action. Outside powers have little desire to aid in the growth of civil society inside Syria, but they enthusiastically assist in illicit weapons trafficking to the war zone, acting as kingmakers in another peoples homeland. The obsession with Bashar al-Assad is a contrivance created by longtime dissenters with no political base in Syria, backed by their supports who sought to provoke the overthrow of the government.

Science! In The Age of Obama

Stately McDaniel Manor

Screen Shot 2015-11-01 at 2.56.30 PMLet us, gentle readers, consider the scientific method. Webster’s defines it thus: 

principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of knowledge involving the recognition and formulation of a problem, the collection of data through observation and experiment, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses

The elements of the pursuit of science are well known. Among them:

(1) Free exchange of ideas and data.

(2) Reproducibility—other scientists, using the same materials and methods, must be able to obtain the same results.

(3) Retention of data and records and the willingness to provide it to others for the purpose of replicating results.

(4) Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.

(5) The burden of proof of any claim falls on the person making it.

Donald Trump will be signing copies of one of his books this Tuesday, November 3rd, and it is expected that our familiar adversary will demonstrate against him.Even if You don’t have a favorable opinion of Trump, the adversary finds him to be the face of people representing our Movement. He stands for immigration enforcement in their eyes, though, of course, his visibility on our Issue and Movement is relatively new.

He has used his celebrity status for our Issue, which, when the mainstream media wanted to ignore us, has been useful for those in our Movement because the media finds it hard to ignore Trump, since he has been a part of the that world of celebrity for a long period.

As usual, I will be there to defend our…
