    Pearl Harvey and The Rest of the Story

    A pen name, a nom de plume (French), is a pseudonym, in my case  it is a variant form of my real name.

    A pseudonym is a name that a person assumes for a particular purpose.

    PEARL REVERE IS MY CODE NAME, running through cyberspace with red flag warnings. One if by land two if by sea….

    AFTER OVER 900 WARNINGS posted on http://www.behindmyback.org, since  it was registered: 2013-01-29 22:20:57 …

    www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/devil.asp

    Soapbox: Radio commentator Paul Harvey penned an essay entitled ‘If I Were the Devil.’ … Claim: Transcript reproduces radio commentator Paul Harvey’s essay entitled “If I Were the Devil.”. … If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.

    SNOPES SAYS The oldest genuine Paul Harvey version of this piece we’ve found so far appeared in his newspaper column in 1964:

    If I Were the Devil

    If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.

    I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree.

    So I should set about however necessary, to take over the United States.

    I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

    With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whispers to you as I whispered to Eve, “Do as you please.”

    To the young I would whisper “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that “man created God,” instead of the other way around. I would confide that “what is bad is good and what is good is square.”

    In the ears of the young married I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be “extreme” in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct.

    And the old I would teach to pray — to say after me — “Our father which are in Washington.”

    Then I’d get organized.

    I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull, uninteresting.

    I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies, and vice-versa.

    I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing, less work. Idle hands usually work for me.

    I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could, I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction, I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the Devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions; let those run wild.

    I’d designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts and I’d get preachers to say, “She’s right.”

    With flattery and promises of power I would get the courts to vote against God and in favor of pornography.

    Thus I would evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, then from the Houses of Congress.

    Then in his own churches I’d substitute psychology for religion and deify science.

    If I were Satan I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg

    And the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

    If I were the Devil I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. Then my police state would force everybody back to work.

    Then I would separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines and objectors in slave-labor camps.

    If I were Satan I’d just keep doing what I’m doing and the whole world go to hell as sure as the Devil.

    I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the devil, I’d soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves until each, in its turn, was consumed.

    And with promises of higher ratings, I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.

    If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellect but neglect to discipline emotions. I’d tell teachers to let those students run will. And before you knew it, you’d have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

    With a decade, I’d have prisons overflowing and judges promoting pornography. Soon, I would evict God from the courthouse and the schoolhouse and them from the houses of Congress.

    In his own churches, I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I’d lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.

    If I were the devil, I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.

    What’ll you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich?

    I’d convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun and that what you see on television is the way to be.

    And thus, I could undress you in public and lure you into bed with diseases for which there are no cures.

    In other words, if I were the devil, I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.

    JAN 28, 2016 – DES MOINES, IA – If Donald Trump had any second thoughts about … stage before a raucous crowd at Drake University on Thursday night to …

    DES MOINES, IA – If Donald Trump had any second thoughts about skipping the GOP debate, he certainly didn’t show it as he took the stage before a raucous crowd at Drake University on Thursday night to say that he had raised nearly $6 million for veterans in one day.

    For several days now, the pundits have pontificated about the damage that Trump’s decision could inflict on his campaign. But, comparing his crowd and the number of cameras to the Academy Awards, Trump waved off the notion that Iowans would see him as a sore loser.

    “We love our vets,” Trump said.

    “When you’re treated badly you have to stick up for your rights,” Trump added, alluding to his relationship with Fox. “And that’s what our country has to do.”

    “We have to stick up for our country when we’re being mistreated.”

    He added that Fox had been “extremely nice,” but it was too late. In an interview with CNN just before the rally, Trump said Fox News “apologized” to him for a mocking statement the television network issued.

    Clearly enjoying his evening away from the debate, Trump also told the audience what could be a secret weapon: his daughter Ivanka, who is pregnant. “Ivanka, I said, it would be so great if you had your baby in Iowa. It would be so great — I’d definitely win!”

    Also appearing with Trump were two men who didn’t make the prime-time debate, and the two most recent winners of the Iowa Caucuses: Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee.

    ‘Donald Trump isn’t scared of anything’

    Trump supporters who waited hours in the cold to see him roundly disputed the notion that he would see any attrition in his support in Iowa, where he has led in recent polls.

    In interviews, many voters here said the controversy was yet another example of Trump bucking the establishment — a trait that has endeared them to him from the beginning — and that they were proud of him standing up to Fox News.

    Ernie Ratcliffe, an army veteran who served two tours in Vietnam, drove in from Kansas City for the rally, scoffed when asked for his thoughts on Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s contention that Trump skipped the debate because he was afraid of taunts or difficult questions from the Fox moderators or rival candidates.

    “Donald Trump isn’t scared of anything. He’s not scared of absolutely anything,” said Ratcliffe, who has signed up with his wife to call New Hampshire voters on Trump’s behalf next week. “Donald J. Trump said he was going to do this and he’s done it. He’s a man of his word.”

    Ratcliffe said he was convinced that Trump was the only candidate who could clean up the Department of Veterans Affairs and that it would be “one of the first things he does when he gets into office.”

    “He’s going to get it squared away,” Ratlcliffe said. “It’s not going to take him very long to do it. He’s going to put the right people in. He knows how to manage things. He’s a very successful businessman. He’s going to get it done very quickly and very, very well.”

    Randal Thom, a former Marine who was among the first admitted to Trump’s event, said he loved it that Trump refused to back down.

    “When it came out yesterday that he was actually doing this (rally) in less than 24 hours, it was amazing,” Thom said. “It just shows he has the ability to rally and get things done.”

    Thom, who raises Alaskan Malamute and Pomalute puppies in Minnesota, and plans to spend Monday in Iowa volunteering for Trump, dismissed Cruz as “a Canadian born citizen” and described the Texas senator, as well as the other GOP contenders as “weak.”

    “Trump is a 100% strongman. He’s bullet proof,” Thom said. “People say, ‘Oh look at his background. Look at the number of wives he’s had.’ You know what? I don’t care about that. What I care about is his future.”

    The details of exactly how Trump plans to parcel out money to veterans groups as a result of the event remained unclear on Monday night. But said he gave $1 million to veterans.

    Inside the auditorium where Trump spoke, the campaign reserved special seating for veterans, many of them disabled, and Trump recognized them as he took the stage.

    WASHINGTON — It’s OK to evangelize. But it’s not OK to proselytize.

    That’s what the Pentagon said Thursday, attempting to clarify its position on religious speech in uniform as controversy swirled up around press reports over possible prosecutions of troops for sharing their faith.

    What it comes down to, officials said, is that discussing matters of faith and religious practice with a willing audience is allowed, but pushing religious beliefs on those who don’t want to hear it is a form of harassment forbidden under Defense Department policies.

    “Service members can share their faith (evangelize), but must not force unwanted, intrusive attempts to convert others of any faith or no faith to one’s beliefs (proselytization),” Pentagon spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen said in a written statement.

    Officials said there was no plan to step up disciplinary action to weed out unacceptable religious speech.

    Outlets including the Fox News website and the Washington Times published an earlier statement from Christensen that appeared to raise the possibility of prosecutions.

    “Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense,” the statement read. “Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis.”

    The lead of a story that appeared on the Washington Times website Thursday concluded that the Pentagon meant that “Soldiers who promote their faith can be prosecuted under military law.”

     But officials said the quote combined two separate statements — one about regulations against proselytization and another about how court martials are brought — to wrongly raise the specter of a move to bring increase disciplinary and legal actions against religious activity.

    The earlier quote from Christensen appeared in stories about a meeting last week between Mikey Weinstein, the controversial head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and Air Force officials.

    Weinstein, who has long waged a public fight to dismantle what he sees as an ingrained culture of proselytization by some Christian officers, met with officials including the Air Force Judge Advocate General and deputy chief of chaplains to express his concern about matters of religious freedom.

    The Pentagon, however, stressed that Weinstein is not a DOD consultant or a member of any advisory board.
