The Crazy ‘Jesus Mythicists’ Lie About Schweitzer the Way Trump Lies About Everything

Here’s an excellent post (thanks to Jona Lendering for pointing it out) on the way the Jesus mythicists misrepresent Schweitzer to further their unhinged, maniacal, idiotic goals.  Give it a read.

Trump’s Pick For National Security Communications Is a Plagiarist

CNN reports

Conservative author and television personality Monica Crowley, whom Donald Trump has tapped for a top national security communications role, plagiarized large sections of her 2012 book, a CNN KFile review has found.

The review of Crowley’s June 2012 book, “What The (Bleep) Just Happened,” found upwards of 50 examples of plagiarism from numerous sources, including the copying with minor changes of news articles, other columnists, think tanks, and Wikipedia. The New York Times bestseller, published by the HarperCollins imprint Broadside Books, contains no notes or bibliography.

Crowley did not return a request for comment. Multiple requests for comment by phone and email over the past two days to HarperCollins went unreturned.

Par for the course for Trump.  The more corrupt, the better.

‘Precious Moments’ – The Slaughter of the Canaanites Edition

moments-696x418The popular line of cutesy Precious Moments figurines is getting a long-awaited addition with an upcoming “Conquest of Canaan” series of collectibles, sources confirmed Friday.

The figures will include iconic events from the momentous time in Israel’s history, including the circumcision of all Jewish males encamped at Gilgal, the slaughter of the wicked inhabitants of Jericho, and the stoning of the deceitful pillager Achan.

“We wanted to depict some of the bloody, violent bits of the Bible in an adorable way,” a Precious Moments representative said as she showed off a collectible set of the five corpses of the Amorite kings Joshua put to the sword and publicly hanged before the people. “These are perfect for decorating a nursery or play room.”

According to the representative, Precious Moments’ sculptors went to great lengths to capture the blood and gore in the scenes depicted.

“They weren’t used to working with so much blood,” she said. “We had to order a ton of different shades of red for the details and finish, but rest assured, you’re getting a product that accurately depicts some of the goriest scenes in the Scriptures.

Precious Moments further confirmed the company would be creating additional lines focused on the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the beheading of John the Baptist, and the assassination of King Eglon.

I so wish this were true

The Bee Stings Pentebabbleist ‘Claim It’ Pseudotheology

Faith-filled man Darrell Meads has a powerful anointing.

On Friday, he decided to showcase that anointing in an INCREDIBLE way.

Meads made up his mind to stand in the middle of some train tracks as an unstoppable freight train came barreling toward him, so he could declare VICTORY over it in the name of Jesus, rebuking the locomotive and causing it to come to a sudden and complete stop, shocking everyone and proving that he is indeed a chosen vessel of the Lord, able to perform supernatural feats at will.

Guess what—Meads stood in the middle of those tracks, just like he said he would. And with a powerful voice, he declared victory over that train. You will NEVER guess what happened next…

He died, unfortunately.

R.I.P. Darrell.

A Simple Truth

Americans love their guns.  Americans hate gun violence.  But Americans love their guns more than they hate gun violence.

Japan’s Amazing Victory Over Gun Violence

This immediately raises the question- what is Japan doing that America isn’t?

Japan has one of the lowest rates of gun crime in the world. In 2014 there were just six gun deaths, compared to 33,599 in the US. What is the secret?

If you want to buy a gun in Japan you need patience and determination. You have to attend an all-day class, take a written exam and pass a shooting-range test with a mark of at least 95%.

There are also mental health and drugs tests. Your criminal record is checked and police look for links to extremist groups. Then they check your relatives too – and even your work colleagues. And as well as having the power to deny gun licences, police also have sweeping powers to search and seize weapons.

That’s not all. Handguns are banned outright. Only shotguns and air rifles are allowed.

The law restricts the number of gun shops. In most of Japan’s 40 or so prefectures there can be no more than three, and you can only buy fresh cartridges by returning the spent cartridges you bought on your last visit.

Read the whole, and then realize, America will never be willing to do what it takes to eradicate gun violence.  Never.  And so we will always suffer its horrifying consequences.

Russian Interference in America’s Election

Like it or not the fact is, Donald Trump was elected by Americans.  Americans, it so happens, that were duped by Russia.  Consequently, it’s not Trump we have to wonder about, but his voters.
