Evangelical Hurricane


Common sense knows lesbians aren’t responsible for Hurricane Harvey. Radio preacher Rick Wiles begs to differ,suggesting Houston is underwater because it “boasted of its LGBT devotion”. Enter my favorite nincompoop Ann Coulter, who tweeted – I don’t believe Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor,” “But that is more credible than ‘climate change.’ ”

Right Wing Watch reported Pastor Kevin Swanson’s caution on hurricane Irma –  the storm path would be altered by God if the Supreme Court quickly made abortion and gay marriage illegal.

Rush Limbaugh doesn’t blame hurricane season on God, however he fingers “liberal media hype” – “There is a desire to advance this climate change agenda, and hurricanes are one of the fastest and best ways to do it,” he argued, claiming that “hurricanes are always forecast to hit major population centers.”

Twenty years ago religious broadcaster Pat Robertson said Orlando should beware of hurricanes for allowing the Gay Days celebration. Robertson said the widespread practice of homosexuality “will bring about terrorist bombs, it’ll bring earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor.”

Jim Bakker deserves mention, his tenacious resolve to profit from God is staggering. Not for a post Harvey assertion “this flood is from God”, but for saying so while pitching “Tasty Pantry”, a line of dehydrated survival food sold to sustain the faithful during the coming apocalypse.

I shudder to think how many people take natural disaster as Gods wrath. How many buy nonsense of climate change conspiracy or fail to understand the significance of 79 degrees Fahrenheit – when surface water in the Atlantic reaches 79 degrees it evaporates at the rate of 180 tons an hour, water vapor rises forming massive clouds of low pressure. Caught in rotational force, clouds rotate pushing away high atmospheric pressure, feeding on energy of continuous evaporation a hurricane is born of warm ocean water, not God.

Stop this Biblical nonsense.

2.1 False Claims A Day And Counting


Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale’s pursuit of Trump falsehoods began innocently enough. Last September, around the time Trump called Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” , Daniel wrote a column on weird/false wannabe president Trump Tweets. Popularity of the piece prompted his editor to suggest it become a regular feature. Eight days later filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted – “this Canadian journalist, every single day in the Toronto Star, lists all the lies that Donald Trump spoke that day. Shames the US media.” Thus began Dale’s diligent scrutiny.

Being a well mannered Canadian Daniel stopped short of calling Trump froth lies. Benefit of the doubt took ignorance into consideration, choosing instead “false claims”. Today the Star published all fact checked “false claims” since Trump’s inauguration on January 20, 2017. Ponder 337 and counting, an average of 2.1 false claims a day.
Linked below – all false Trump claims since inauguration including a searchable data base by topic.

Ponder The Mindset Of Trump’s America


News broke today of Mueller officially investigating Donald Trump for criminal obstruction. Being a busy day I didn’t give it much thought until home from work found this comment waiting on my laptop. A unrelated response to an old post in which I pondered what exactly Trump meant by “Make America Great Again”. A comment reminding me Trump supporters are immovable objects impervious to truth, reason or common sense. A comment driving home the fact Trump’s America doesn’t care about obstruction of justice.

What follows was written yesterday. Penned with determination and sincerity indifferent to realities of Trumpish corruption. This is Trump’s America, minds set in righteous monoliths of delusion hewn by opportunistic media manipulation of reality. Read on for an ominous lesson in the power of propaganda and fear –

“I thought “great’ referred to our standing in the eyes of the world. We used be #1 and under obama we were down to #3 or #5. Our schools used to be near the top with several other countries and then we were closer to the bottom. None of this happened quickly, and not just one party is responsible. Obama hurt America faster than the others. I read some of his book and he said that America did not deserve it’s place as Top Dog [my words, not direct quote from the book.] Why not? Should it be a communist nation where freedom is not allowed? Trump wants to get rid of the laws that bog down business growth. How’s that bad? He wants to let us keep our freedom to worship who we want. Obama wanted to take that away and have everyone worship Allah. Obama wanted to change or get rid of our Constitution. That is a unique document that has worked well for generations. Yes times change, but the Constitution remains the same and needs no changes.”

Absurd Right Wing American Logic


Logic need not apply for consideration in right wing America. Two years after this clip aired on Fox news, the italicized comment that follows epitomizes the void propaganda creates in logic.

“Because Obama’s faith, or lack thereof, interferes with our lives. Initially he claimed to be Christian then he went to visit some foreign country and bowed deeply to the Prince who was Muslim. They hugged. If Obama was a ‘Christian’, he would not have bowed. His deep bow indicated submission and respect to that leader. In essence dragging out country with him. Muslims do not hug anyone but other Muslims.
Then Obama claims that he is Muslim. His accent is quite good when using their words, so it’s not something foreign to him. Yet this past Easter, while addressing his audience he says…”as we Christians”, including himself. Either the man can’t make up his mind what religion he is, or he thinks we are too stupid to know you cannot be both a Christian and a Muslim.
He has put Muslims in numerous aspects of the government, military and businesses. That way, when Obama is out of office, there will be other Muslims to take over.”

George W Bush kissing a Saudi prince, Donald Trump participating in a sword dance then placing his hands on an orb with Saudi leaders is polite diplomacy. Absurd right wing logic burbles righteous patriotism over Bush/Trump Arab encounters. Absurd logic dictates America fear only a black president whose middle name is Hussein. Fear Obama, the terrifying Negro whose diplomatic bow proves duplicitous Muslim intent to force Sharia Law on unsuspecting Americans. Absurd right wing logic can sleep well knowing its white reality television real estate mogul president isn’t a secret Muslim when he frolics with loathsome Arabs.

Absurd logic relies on ignorance, understands the propaganda of fear and knows how to nullify common sense resistance. Preposterous reason dictates Obama is Muslim for bowing to an Arab. Absurd logic scoffs at suggestion Donald Trump is anything but America’s great white hope. Right wing America – you need your head examined.

Garden Spicer


Lisa Kadonaga, a geography professor at University of Victoria in Victoria B.C. thought her friends would get a kick out of “Garden Spicer”. She found a Spicer headshot, blew it up, cut it out, stuck it in shrubbery outside a local bank, snapped a photo and shared it with Facebook friends. Kadonaga’s joke, sparked by reports of Spicer meeting reporters at night in shadows of bushes outside the White House soon became a phenomenon.

Within hours, Twitter, Facebook and media shares prompted Kadonaga to upload it to Dropbox – a move that temporarily crashed the photo sharing site.

Who needs lawn gnomes when you have Spicer ornaments?A Facebook post has emerged in which a user created the “Garden Spicer,” a parody of the startling event which took place at the White House earlier this week with Press Secretary Sean Spicer.The Trump surrogate reportedly took refuge in bushesfollowing an interview on Fox Business after the James Comey firing.Facebook user Lisa Kadonaga wrote: “Here’s something I made this afternoon. Now you too can have the White House press secretary in — or rather ‘among’ — the bushes in your yard.”Her post shows four photos of Spicer cutouts that can be placed anywhere “among” the bushes.Sean Spicer reportedly hid in bushes after Comey firingWhat’s next? Sounds of careful deliberation?

Maybe a motion sensor triggering a recording on Garden Spicer: “Turn the lights off!”

Kadonaga’s post continues, reading: “And hey, if you’re concerned that when exposed to the outdoors, the image will run…no worries, that’s exactly what Sean Spicer does, so it’s totally authentic!”

Knock, Knock America – Anyone Home?


Knock, knock America – anyone home?

This is important, hiding behind closed blinds is shameful. Thick coats of indoctrination varnish can’t disguise a dull patina, you’re not fooling anyone but yourselves. Propaganda destroys all you hold dear.

Ponder this snippet of Trumpish dribble yanked from responses to my position on Trump firing FBI Director Comey. Perish the thought this puff chested American might consider truth before parroting malarkey.

On a final note, are you prepared to ask for a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton’s email server scandal, or the Clinton Foundation corruption, or even the hackneyed old Benghazi scandal? No? I didn’t think so. The point is that we consider these accusations against Trump to be bogus political clap trap without an ounce of merit. Why should we legitimize them with recognition?

In addition, given the way that the leftist media openly conspired with Clinton, denigrated Trump endlessly, and even gave material aid to her campaign, by giving debate questions in advance and so forth, maybe it was only right that Trump might have received outside aid. Plenty of American news agencies are inundated with foreigners from top to bottom, and those foreigners openly railed against Trump. Where is the outcry?

That is why we won’t indulge this witch hunt.”

Or this nugget of stewed conservative wisdom –

The left is already imposing severe economic oppression on those who hold ideas they consider in opposition to their own. They mount campaigns to get conservatives fired who say or do even the tiniest thing they consider to be politically incorrect. They sue people and destroy businesses to make a politically correct statement or point.

Social regimentation is very strong in the revolutionary left. Conformity in speech and thought is demanded and punished with social sanctions. One must adhere to the rigid ideology of identity politics and ridicule and socially punish those who simply don’t agree with the extreme identity politics of the revolutionary left.

The revolutionary left appears to want a society with strong autocratic controls, both economically (through redistribution of wealth) and socially, through heavy social and economic sanctions on those who do not conform to the gospel of identity politics and do not conform to the approved speech of the revolutionary left.

Knock, knock America, answer the front door. Whining about Hillary, frosting Trump cakes with layers of conspiracy saccharine and blaming marauding hoards of left wing demons for desiccating America doesn’t alter the fact Donald Trump belongs behind bars.
