Total Depravity: Or, Why, Once Again, Unmarried Teens Ought Not Have Children

Police say a three-month-old baby whose mother dangled him over a balcony at apartment complex in Knoxville died from his injuries. His mother, 19-year-old Tierra Patrice Williamson now faces first degree murder charges in his death.

The call came in around 8:20 p.m. Friday to an apartment complex at 1100 Lula Powell Drive. A 911 caller said the woman was threatening to drop the child, Adrian Prince Howell, Jr. from a third-floor balcony. When police arrived, they found the injured child inside the apartment. He was rushed to the hospital, where he later died.

Police say the cause of death was blunt force trama to the head.

Williamson is still being treated at the hospital under guard. Once she is released from the hospital, she will be taken to the Roger D. Wilson Detention Center where she will be hold on $100,000 bond.

Stop it, you monsters.

GOP Hypocrisy: The Fake Christian Politician

An Ohio lawmaker who routinely touted his Christian faith and anti-LGBT views has resigned after being caught having sex with a man in his office.  Wes Goodman, who is the Republican state legislator for Ohio, is married to a woman who is assistant director of an annual anti-abortion rally known as March for Life.

The right-wing legislator, who pushed “family values”, was reportedly witnessed having sex with a man inside his office who was not employed by the legislator.  According to the Columbus Dispatch, the observer told Ohio House Chief of Staff Mike Dittoe what had happened on Tuesday afternoon. Mr Dittoe responded by telling House Speaker Republican Cliff Rosenberger who in turn met with Mr Goodman.

The 33-year-old, who has been branded the “conscience of the conservative movement”, resigned for “inappropriate conduct” shortly after the meeting took place.  Mr Goodman, whose Twitter biography describes him as “Christian. American. Conservative. Republican. Husband to @Beth1027”, has regularly claimed “natural marriage” occurs between a man and a woman.

“Healthy, vibrant, thriving, values-driven families are the source of Ohio’s proud history and the key to Ohio’s future greatness,” reads his campaign website which has now been taken offline.  “The ideals of a loving father and mother, a committed natural marriage, and a caring community are well worth pursuing and protecting.”

Mr Goodman was elected to represent the 87th District, in north-central Ohio, just last year. Prior to that, he worked as an aide to US Representative Jim Jordan, a highly conservative, anti-LGBT Republican. The Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBT advocacy group in the US, named Mr Jordan in their Hall of Shame in 2014 for attempting to block marriage equality in the District of Columbia.

Mr Goodman, whose Twitter is now private and whose Facebook page has been taken offline, expressed his commitment to so-called family values in a statement back in 2013. “Faith, family, service, stewardship, strong education, and investment in our local communities are what Ohioans value. My wife Bethany and I value those same things and are ready to get to work to serve you,” he said.

The lawmaker acknowledged he was stepping down in a statement. “We all bring our own struggles and our own trials into public life,” he said.  “That has been true for me, and I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service,” he continued. “For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry. As I move onto the next chapter of my life, I sincerely ask for privacy for myself, my family, and my friends.”

“I was alerted to details yesterday afternoon regarding his involvement in inappropriate behaviour related to his state office,” Mr Rosenberger said in a statement. “I met with him later in the day where he acknowledged and confirmed the allegations. It became clear that his resignation was the most appropriate course of action for him, his family, the constituents of the 87th House District and this institution.”

Good grief.  Fake Christian and fake husband and fake politician and fake, fake, fake.

UPDATE:  Wes Goodman also molested a kid. at a Tony Perkins event:  https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/how-a-conservative-group-dealt-with-a-fondling-charge-against-a-rising-gop-star/2017/11/17/b3b4b8da-c956-11e7-b0cf-7689a9f2d84e_story.html

When Any Nut Who Wants a Gun Can Get a Gun…

You get this-

Kevin Neal’s deadly shooting rampage in Northern California may have been prompted by the fatal shooting of his wife, Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said Wednesday.

Neal, identified as the gunman who killed four people in a string of shootings Tuesday, shot and killed his wife the previous night and concealed her body under a floor in his home, the assistant sheriff said. The discovery of his wife’s body brought the death toll to five.

“We believe that’s probably what started this whole event,” Johnston said of the wife’s shooting.

Congress is Jam Packed With Reprobates

CNN reports

Be extra careful of the male lawmakers who sleep in their offices — they can be trouble. Avoid finding yourself alone with a congressman or senator in elevators, late-night meetings or events where alcohol is flowing. And think twice before speaking out about sexual harassment from a boss — it could cost you your career.

These are a few of the unwritten rules that some female lawmakers, staff and interns say they follow on Capitol Hill, where they say harassment and coercion is pervasive on both sides of the rotunda.

There is also the “creep list” — an informal roster passed along by word-of-mouth, consisting of the male members most notorious for inappropriate behavior, ranging from making sexually suggestive comments or gestures to seeking physical relations with younger employees and interns.

CNN spoke with more than 50 lawmakers, current and former Hill aides and political veterans who have worked in Congress, the majority of whom spoke anonymously to be candid and avoid potential repercussions. With few exceptions, every person said they have personally experienced sexual harassment on the Hill or know of others who have.

What a sick bunch.  Sick and perverse.

Roy Moore’s Wife Posts Letter of Support And Just Two Pastors Want their Names Removed

Here’s the ongoing saga.

Kayla Moore, wife of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, shared a letter on Facebook over the weekend indicating support from more than 50 Alabama pastors. Not all the pastors said they gave permission for their name to be be used on what appears to be a recycled letter from before the GOP primary, however.

Moore’s wife Kayla posted the letter to her Facebook page Sundayafter days of controversy surrounding her husband and allegations he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old in 1979 when he was 32-years-old. Three other women said Moore pursued them as teenagers. The letter was posted before a fifth woman, Beverly Young Nelson, came forward with additional charges Monday.

After the letter was published on AL.com, Tijuanna Adetunji of the Fresh Anointing House of Worship in Montgomery, said she was not contacted about the letter and did not give permission for her name to be used.

“I was not asked about this story or allegations,” Adetunji said.

The letter appears to be a version of one already posted on Moore’s campaign website. That letter, posted prior to the primary, contains all the same wording as below but with three extra paragraphs at the top, including a sentence referencing the Aug. 15 vote.

Pastor Thad Endicott said he was not contacted about the most recent post from Kayla Moore.

“The list that has recently circulated was evidently copied and pasted from the August endorsements without checking to see if I still endorsed Moore,” said Endicott.

Endicott, pastor at Heritage Baptist Church, asked that his name be removed from the Moore endorsement.

Moore’s campaign did not respond to questions related to the letter or why it was posted with the date and identifying information removed. At least one of the pastors listed as supporting Moore is no longer at the church listed on the letter.

So Moore’s wife is just as disingenuous and manipulative as he is.  Why is it that everyone who identifies themselves as supporters of Donald Trump are willing to be as deceptive and manipulative as necessary to achieve the Trumpian agenda?  What’s wrong with Christians who act this way?  Because there definitely is something wrong with them.

And People Think Demons Aren’t Real…

Well here’s one-

The Perverse Attempt of The Perverse Roy Moore to Enlist Breitbart’s Help in Killing the Molestation Story

Read it here.

Roy Moore, the Republican Party’s senate candidate in Alabama, went to Steve Bannon’s Breitbart in an attempt to head off accusations of child molestation that are now surfacing.

Moore has been an icon of the conservative movement for years. He has beat the drum in opposition to marriage equality between consenting adults, claiming it would lead to “multiple marriages” or possibly “marriages between men and their daughters or women and their sons.”

Moore now stands accused of child molestation, and has been caught desperately trying to get his conservative allies to cover up the bombshell news story for him.

An email inquiry from a Washington Post reporter was forwarded to Breitbart, which quickly put together a story defending Moore. The right-wing propaganda site positioned the serious allegations against Moore as coming after the Post’s editorial board endorsed Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate.

But the effort is likely to backfire, and underlines the seriousness of the claims against Moore.

Moore should be arrested and when convicted, imprisoned to the fullest extent of the law.  The vile hypocrite, traipsing around the country pretending to be Godly with his 10 Commandments crusade.  Vile and disgusting wretch.

Judge Roy Moore, Republican, Candidate For the Senate from Alabama, and, Naturally, Child Molester

Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.

It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat — was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.

“He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.

“I wanted it over with — I wanted out,” she remembers thinking. “Please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over.” Corfman says she asked Moore to take her home, and he did.

Two of Corfman’s childhood friends say she told them at the time that she was seeing an older man, and one says Corfman identified the man as Moore. Wells says her daughter told her about the encounter more than a decade later, as Moore was becoming more prominent as a local judge.

Read the rest.  There’s just something about these far right authoritarians (and one’s on the far left too, right Harvey Weinstein) that makes them sexual predators.  There’s a special place in hell for all of them.

Total Depravity: They Starved their Child to Death, As Punishment

Authorities who charged an Illinois couple with murder say their 6-year-old son died last week of malnutrition because they allegedly withheld food to punish him, PEOPLE confirms.

The boy weighed just 17 lbs. at the time of his death, according to documents from the Jersey County, Illinois, State’s Attorney obtained by PEOPLE.

Police in Jerseyville, Illinois, said in a statement that they were called to the Jerseyville Community Hospital on Friday after the boy died.

Investigators determined that the child — who lived with three other siblings and two step-siblings — and a 7-year-old were both allegedly “deprived of food by their father and stepmother as a form of punishment,” a police statement said.

Charged in the case are Michael Roberts, the father, and stepmother Georgena Roberts, both 42, according to documents from the Jersey County State’s Attorney.

Hell was made for such people as these.

You Can Buy a Dry Cleaning Bag… Dress… for $700…

If you’re a big fat idiot that is.  Because only an idiot would.

You know what they say: One man’s plastic dry-cleaner bag is another man’s “cape sheer overlay dress.”

This “slip-on, sleeveless design,” per the luxury retailer Browns’ website, is by the irreverent Italian label Moschino, part of designer Jeremy Scott’s trash-inspired “cardboard couture” Fall 2017 collection. It’ll set you back a hefty $700.

Scott, fashion’s long-reigning postmodern provocateur, has a knack for turning the detritus of everyday life into la alta moda. Some of his most popular Moschino designs have riffed on McDonald’s french fries, Barbie parts and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Morons.

I Am Extremely Unimpressed

This volume… which seems so promising… is an absolute disappointment.  And that’s before even opening it and merely reading the table of contents.

How on earth can you have a volume on the Reformation which includes primary sources and completely ignores Zwingli? That’s like having a volume on math and leaving out a discussion of addition.  It is literally incomprehensible, inexcusable, and unforgivable.

The Rank Hypocrisy of the ‘Why Doesn’t God Do Anything About Evil’ Crowd

Every time something awful happens and some wretch does something terrible to innocent folk there is always a chorus of voices raised in protest, complaining that God ought to do something, and why, by the way, doesn’t he.

David Hume was the loudest of these screechers, opining at the end of the day that ‘if God is good he is not God; and if God is God, he is not good’.

What the poor syphilitic Scotsman failed to admit, or recognize, along with all of his modern disciples, is that God has granted ALL of us free will.

Our exercise of that free will is the problem, not God.  And we love our free will, when it’s ours.  We just don’t like it when someone besides us exercises theirs.

So, for instance, Bob wants to go out and get drunk and drive home, and does so because he’s free to do so.  And on the way home he runs Randy down.  Randy was minding his own business but Bob was exercising his free will to be an absolute piece of human garbage.  And so he was.   Randy suffered the consequences of Bob’s free will.  But of course Randy too is a friend of free will, since only hours earlier, he had followed a girl from her dorm room to a park where she was going to jog.  Overcome with desire, because he had seen her many times before, Randy raped her and left her for dead.  Because, you know, free will.

Free will… it opens the door to every evil and is the worst and best of all God’s gifts to wretched selfish humanity.  Or more precisely, the use of free will is the greatest gift God has given to wretched humanity.

Free will exists because God wishes us to be free, and not puppets.  How we choose to use our freedom is completely in our hands.  But the minute someone uses theirs in a way contrary to our wishes, we blame God (whilst enjoying our own free will to the fullest).

It is hypocrisy.  It is rank hypocrisy to denounce God whilst exercising the freedom he has granted.  Instead of denouncing God, denounce the one who exercised her or his free will to do evil.  Denounce yourself.  Because when all is said and done, you’re the one who has taken the good gift of God and destroyed it.

The next time some piece of filth guns down a bunch of folk remind yourself that he has distorted a good gift of God: choice.  And when you’re screeching about ‘a woman’s choice’ remember your own opposition to choice in the hands of the terrorist and recall that your own choices haven’t always been what anyone outside your own head would call good; and stop blaming God, and start blaming the totally depraved wretch who did the deed you despise.

The Suicide Attempt that Became A Murder

Police say a 12-year-old boy jumped from an overpass above Interstate 66 in northern Virginia and fell onto a car, killing the driver.

The incident took place Saturday afternoon in Fairfax County. Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said in a statement Sunday afternoon that the boy landed on a Ford Escape and the impact incapacitated the vehicle’s driver. Virginia State Police are investigating the incident as a suicide attempt, CBS affiliate WUSA-TV reports.

Geller says the driver of the Ford, 22-year-old Marisa W. Harris of Olney, Maryland, died at the scene. Harris’ family said her boyfriend, who was in the passenger’s seat, took control of the car and steered it off of the interstate, WUSA-TV reports.

The boy was taken to a local hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

They Left Their Baby in A Swing For a Week and It Was Found, Rotting…

Honestly, if this story doesn’t make you pine for the swift application of the death penalty you have no soul.  And you care nothing for justice.

Two Chickasaw County parents are accused of murdering their nearly four-month-old son in August, according to the Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators said the child was found unresponsive in an infant swing at about 1:00 p.m. on August 30 in the apartments on Hilltop Avenue in Alta Vista.

According to a criminal complaint, Sterling Koehn was found in a powered, infant swing with maggots on his clothing and skin. An autopsy determined that Sterling weighed under seven pounds and was only 14 inches long, well below the 5th percentile in both size and weight for his age.

On Tuesday, the sheriff’s office said Zachary Paul Koehn and Cheyanne Renae Harris were arrested and taken to jail. Both are charged with murder and child endangerment causing death.

Investigators believe the parents’ account of how the baby died was inconsistent to the findings of the autopsy.

Court records show Zachery Koehn told police Harris had checked on their child at 9:00 a.m. on August 30 and said he was fine. Zachary told dispatchers he checked on him again about two hours later, finding him dead.

Further study of the growth and development of the maggots found on his body, show he had not had his diaper changed, given a bath or been removed from the swing in over a week.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Chickasaw County Chief Deputy Reed Palo at 641-394-3121.

Both are due in court on November 2.

Inhuman monsters.  Evil spawn of Satan.

The destiny of Zachary Paul Koehn and Cheyanne Renae Harris.

Warning: What Your Elected Officials Have Said About Women Is Sickening and Evil

And if you vote for ANY of these reprobates, you are as guilty as they are because you have winked in silence at their disgusting and unvirtuous sin:

  • “Some girls rape easy.” – Rep. Roger Rivard (R-Wi)
  • “Rape is kinda like the weather. If it’s inevitable, relax and enjoy it.” – Clayton Williams (R-former Texas gubernatorial candidate)
  • “From what I understand…If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” – Todd Akin (R-Mo)
  • “You know, back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees, and it wasn’t that costly.” – Foster Friess (R-mega-donor behind Rick Santorum Super PAC)
  • “If a woman has (the right to an abortion), why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t (in most cases) result in anyone’s death.” – Lawrence Lockman (R-Me)
  • “In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits, where a woman can get cleaned out.” – Jodie Laubenberg (R-Tx)
  • “It is similar, from the father’s position.” – Tom Smith (R, failed candidate for a seat in PA, discussing how rape and premarital sex are the same thing)
  • “I would hope that when a woman goes into a physician, with a rape issue, that that physician will indeed ask her about perhaps her marriage, was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage, or was it truly caused by a rape.” – Chuck Winder (R-Id)
  • “What did they expect?” – Liz Trotta (FOX pundit and horrible person, referring to women who are raped in the military)
  • “Rape victims should make the best of a bad situation.” – Rick Santorum (R – Senator from PA)
  • “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy.” – Donald Trump (R-Reality TV star and now President of the United States)

NONE of this is acceptable. If you have a daughter or wife and someone said any of these things about them, you would beat them down. I would.  I denounce and condemn such language and insist that all decent Americans do as well.

Of Course… But Remember, there is no ‘Slippery Slope’…

And those advocating for gay marriage are in absolutely no position to object to prostitution because ‘love is love’.  Purchasers love cheap sex and sellers love money.

A federal appeals court gave the go-ahead Thursday to activists seeking to overturn California’s 145-year ban on commercial sex. A three-judge panel of 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said the plaintiffs’ legal challenge against the ban may proceed.

The plaintiffs say the current law violates the right to engage in consensual sex, as described in a 2003 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that revoked criminal laws against gay sexual acts, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. “I believe people in this country have the right to act this way and to make a living this way,” attorney Louis Sirkin told a judicial panel, KTVU-TV reported.

The pro prostitution crowd will prevail.  Such are the times in which we live, when all do what is ‘right in their own eyes’ and truly, there is no Divine King in the land…

Total Depravity: Murder By Fat

A 325-pound (150-kilogram) Florida woman is charged with killing her 9-year-old cousin by sitting on the child as punishment.

Veronica Green Posey, 64, was arrested and charged with homicide and cruelty toward a child, The Pensacola News Journal reported. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report identified Posey as the girl’s cousin.

Paramedics and deputies responded to the family’s Pensacola home following a 911 call Saturday. Posey told deputies she sat on Dericka Lindsay as discipline “for being out of control.”

During the punishment, Dericka told Posey and two other adult relatives, who are identified in the report as the girl’s parents, that she couldn’t breathe. When Posey got up, Dericka wasn’t breathing. Authorities said Posey called 911 and started CPR on the child.

The arrest report said Grace Joan Smith, 69, and James Edmund Smith, are charged with child neglect.

Grace Smith called Posey, who is her niece, to her house to help with disciplining the girl, according to the report. She told investigators that Posey hit the girl with a ruler and metal pipe before the child ran to an armchair.

Total Depravity: They Were in the Oven and She Turned it On

A warrant says an Atlanta woman put her two young sons in an oven and turned it on.  Local media reported Monday that the warrant charging Lamora Williams with murder in the deaths of 1-year-old son Ja’Karter Penn and 2-year-old Ke-Yaunte Penn says she put them in the oven sometime between midnight Thursday and 11 p.m. Friday.

A third boy, 3-year-old Jameel Penn Jr., was found unharmed. Williams waived a court appearance Monday and was denied bail.  The father of all three children, Jameel Penn, says Williams called him by video chat Friday night to tell him his children were dead. Penn says he called police after seeing his sons on the floor.

Evil has a face, and a name.  It’s Lamora.

Weinstein is Just a Symptom of the Sickness of Moral Bankruptcy

And the Bee is on the mark again.

In the wake of the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal sending shockwaves through Hollywood, the nation’s elite members of the entertainment industry have expressed their puzzlement at the fact that the country has fallen so far in morality and ethics, when the very same people have created and promoted entertainment that celebrates moral bankruptcy, sources confirmed.

Directors, actors, writers, and producers who have profited off disgusting, repulsive works that would have been unthinkable just a decade ago all voiced their shock at the fact that Weinstein’s behavior could go unchecked for so long, in addition to expressing incredulity at the nation’s indifference to President Trump’s total lack of moral character. Particularly outspoken on the nation’s morality was Steve Pink, director of Hot Tub Time Machine 2, who blasted the country for its lack of ethics, respect, and dignity.

“How did it get like this? How could we possibly have elected a reality TV star as our president?” one prominent director of reality TV shows said in an interview Friday evening. “I just don’t understand how reality TV’s empty values could possibly have infiltrated our society.”

Earlier this week, popular rapper Eminem even blasted President Trump for his disgusting ethics and repulsive lack of morals, the explicit hip-hop artist stating later that he has no idea why the nation’s sense of morality is so far askew. “Where do they get these violent tendencies?” he asked later. “It’s like they’re just coming up out of thin air.”

At publishing time, a wildly popular star of violent movies that glorify war, murder, and the U.S. industrial-complex expressed his total bafflement that the nation seems to have gotten increasingly violent both domestically and abroad.

Satanists Want Christian Bakers to Make Satanic Cakes (Not The Onion)

Because, of course.

The Satanic Temple is urging its followers to target Christian bakers opposed to working gay weddings by demanding they make cakes for “for Satan.” Lucien Greaves, co-founder and spokesperson for The Satanic Temple, argued in a patheos blog called “According to Matthew” on Tuesday that Christian business owners are discriminating against gay people for refusing to serve gay weddings.

Patheos… pretty much the source of all religious crap on the internet.

He expressed fears that since sexual orientation is not a protected class under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, religious business owners might start winning cases at the U.S. Supreme Court.  “For this reason, The Satanic Temple has announced a plan for those who feel alienated or oppressed by the privileged status that religion holds over sexual orientation: Request your homophobic baker make a cake for Satan,” Greaves wrote.  In an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday he suggested that if evangelical Christians choose to not work same-sex weddings, “then other people should be allowed to deny them services as well.”

Up next, NAMBLA and a demand that Christian bakers make cakes for pedophiles.
