Jerry Falwell Denigrates Liberty U Students in Emails

If the trustees don’t dismiss this miscreant, they are irresponsible and foolish.

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. denigrated students and staff alike in several newly obtained emails dating back to 2008 — one in which he called a student “emotionally imbalanced and physically retarded,” according to a new report.

The comments, contained in email exchanges with colleagues obtained by Reuters, range from labeling some students at the Lynchburg, Virginia, evangelical Christian university as “social misfits” to calling the school’s police chief a “half-wit.”

“I talked to [name of student] today,” Falwell wrote in one email from 2010. “[He] is emotionally imbalanced and physically retarded. He is a nice kid but is an easy target for anyone who will give him a little attention. I feel sorry for [him] but he is not a leader among students.”

In another, from 2011, Falwell allegedly called Ronald Sones, then the dean of the engineering school, “a bag of hot air” who “couldn’t spell the word profit.” Sones could not be reached be Reuters.

He also branded campus police chief Richard Hinkley as “a half-wit and easy to manipulate” who shouldn’t be allowed to speak publicly. He, too, couldn’t be reached for comment.

I think we all know who the real half wit is.  And his name is Jerry Falwell.  HE MUST GO.  Anyone who hates students as much as he clearly does, does not deserve to be at a university.

In another email to officials from 2012, Falwell allegedly dismissed students’ parents who begged the school not to relocate their kids from on-campus dorms to off-campus housing in the middle of their freshman year. At the time, Liberty was looking to raze some dorms to build new ones.

“Tell them, if they keep complaining, we’ll tear them down over Thanksgiving break!” Falwell allegedly wrote.

In a 2015 email, Falwell is said to have blasted students who tried to avoid Liberty parking fees by using an off-campus lot.

“These students need to learn to play by the rules or they can go to another college,” he allegedly said. “I’m tired of this crap. Thanks! Jerry.”

He’s simply evil.  If he isn’t gone soon, it’s only because the Liberty trustees are useless hacks.

Reason 8,903 to Avoid ‘Storefront’ Pentebabbleist ‘Churches’ – This One Lured Homeless People in and Forced them To Panhandle for Cash

Inside a beige bungalow in California’s Imperial Valley with a well-trimmed lawn and beds of pink flowers, the 17-year-old girl felt imprisoned. The doors were locked from the inside. The windows were nailed shut.

Like the other homeless and vulnerable people who came to Imperial Valley Ministries seeking shelter, food and rehab, the teenager was not allowed to leave without supervision, was not allowed to contact her family, to “discuss things of the world” or read any book but the Bible, according to federal prosecutors. Those who lived in the church’s group homes had to turn over their money and welfare benefits, their identification and all of their personal belongings, so that even if they wanted to leave, they couldn’t, prosecutors said.

Then, once they settled in, they were allegedly forced to panhandle up to nine hours a day for six days a week in parking lots and on street corners — turning over every penny they earned to the church.

Read the whole. Shame on the cult. And shame on those who think it’s not a cult.

Jerry Falwell Denies the Facts- But That Backfires, Because There’s Photographic Evidence

Jerry Falwell Jr. vehemently denied that he appeared in photos taken at a Miami Beach nightclub — even after shown the evidence — but that strategy appears to have backfired.

The evangelical Liberty University and its president were the subject of a bombshell report published Monday by Politico, where insiders described Falwell’s salacious language and apparent self-dealing.

The report by university alumnus Brandon Ambrosio also examined photographs taken of Falwell and his son Trey Falwell at the Miami Beach nightclub Wall, which university sources said he tried to make disappear.

The photos taken July 19, 2014, during a performance by popular Swedish DJ John Dahlbäck were shared online by World Red Eye, an outlet that documents Miami’s nightlife scene.

Falwell denied the photos existed in a statement to Ambrosio before the Politico report was published, saying no photos had been taken of him at Wall or any other nightclub, and insisted the reporter was mistaken even after learning the photos had been obtained for the article.

“If you show me the picture, I can probably help you out,” Falwell wrote in a statement. “I think you are making some incorrect assumptions, or have been told false things or are seeing something that was photo-shopped.”

Falwell again insisted the photos had been doctored after he was shown images of him and his son in the crowd at Wall, and denied that he had ever tried to get the photos taken offline.

That denial — and Falwell’s suggestion that World Red Eye had manipulated the images — prompted the photography website’s founder to respond.

“For 21 years, I have maintained an impeccable reputation for documenting Miami Beach’s storied social scene,” wrote Seth Browarnik, founder World Red Eye.

Read the rest.  Falwell is a Trump supporter because Trump and Falwell have many things in common.  Let that sink in, ‘Evangelicals’.

Read this tweet as well and enjoy the photos.

That Poor Little Boy…

This is heartbreaking.

Friends, family, and neighbors are heartbroken after a 6-year-old boy and his grandmother were shot and killed by his grandfather in a murder-suicide in Hermitage Saturday night.

Police say 64-year-old Terry Majors shot and killed his 61-year-old wife, Leigh Shea Majors, and their 6-year-old grandson, Ty Dodson, before turning the gun on himself and taking his own life.

The only witness to the shooting was Ty’s 4-year-old sister. who made it out unharmed and ran to the neighbors for help. Ty’s uncle, Chase Dodson tells News 2 that he believes Ty told her to run.

“It’s so hard… when those kids come into your classroom, they become your own and I can’t describe how much I love Ty,” said Tabitha Collins, Ty’s former pre-school teacher at Allen County Primary Center.

She told News 2 they called him ‘Ty the Science Guy” and that he was always helping others with big dreams of becoming a police officer when he grew up.

Ending your own life is one thing.  Ending the life of a little 6 year old boy is unforgiveable and intolerable.

Jerry Falwell is Corrupt: The 24+ Liberty U Officials Who Are Breaking their Silence

At Liberty University, all anyone can talk about is Jerry Falwell Jr. Just not in public.

“When he does stupid stuff, people will mention it to others they consider confidants and not keep it totally secret,” a trusted adviser to Falwell, the school’s president and chancellor, told me. “But they won’t rat him out.”

That’s beginning to change.

Over the past year, Falwell, a prominent evangelical leader and supporter of President Donald Trump, has come under increasing scrutiny. News outlets have reported on business deals by Liberty University benefiting Falwell’s friends. Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen claimed that he had helped Falwell clean up racy “personal” photographs.

Based on scores of new interviews and documents obtained for this article, concerns about Falwell’s behavior go well beyond that—and it’s causing longtime, loyal Liberty University officials to rapidly lose faith in him.

More than two dozen current and former high-ranking Liberty University officials and close associates of Falwell spoke to me or provided documents for this article, opening up—for the first time at an institution so intimately associated with the Falwell family—about what they’ve experienced and why they don’t think he’s the right man to lead Liberty University or serve as a figurehead in the Christian conservative movement.

In interviews over the past eight months, they depicted how Falwell and his wife, Becki, consolidated power at Liberty University and how Falwell presides over a culture of self-dealing, directing university resources into projects and real estate deals in which his friends and family have stood to make personal financial gains. Among the previously unreported revelations are Falwell’s decision to hire his son Trey’s company to manage a shopping center owned by the university, Falwell’s advocacy for loans given by the university to his friends, and Falwell’s awarding university contracts to businesses owned by his friends.

“We’re not a school; we’re a real estate hedge fund,” said a senior university official with inside knowledge of Liberty’s finances. “We’re not educating; we’re buying real estate every year and taking students’ money to do it.”

Bold face my emphasis.  You need to read the entire report.  Falwell should be in prison.  Today.

Mark Sanford: Philanderer, Adulterer, and of Course, GOP Candidate for President

Facing monumentally longshot odds, former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford announced Sunday he will challenge fellow Republican President Donald Trump for the White House, launching a campaign centered on Washington spending but also on where the party is headed.  The announcement came during a nationally televised in-studio appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” the conservative-leaning news network Trump is known to watch regularly.

“I think we need to have a conversation on what it means to be a Republican. I think that as a Republican Party, we have lost our way,” Sanford said in his interview with Chris Wallace in Washington.  The former Charleston congressman has been privately considering a presidential bid since he left office in January and has been publicly exploring its viability for the last 54 days.  He is basing his run on a warning that the Republican Party is at an “inflection point” after three years of the Trump presidency, though he is making attention to the ballooning national debt his focal point.

“We need to have a conversation about humility,” Sanford also said during the interview as he noted Trump’s penchant for commenting by tweet “is not leadership.”  Sanford knows he is facing overwhelming odds of success in a race where most polls give the president an overwhelming approval rating among party diehards.

“I’m saying ‘you never know,’ ” he said, and that “this is the beginning of a long walk, but it begins with a first step.”  With his entrance into the race, Sanford, 59, becomes the third GOP candidate to formally challenge the president in the 2020  contest. The two other candidates are former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh.

The GOP…  the party of hypocrites.

Blasphemy

A Mechanic Sabotaged an Airplane… For…. Wait for It… Money…

A mechanic for American Airlines was arrested Thursday and accused of trying to sabotage a commercial airliner shortly before it was set to take off from Miami International Airport for the Bahamas with 150 people on board.

Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani has been charged with “willfully damaging, destroying, disabling, or wrecking an aircraft, and attempting to do so,” according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court. Alani allegedly tried to damage or disable the aircraft’s air data module (ADM) system, which reports aircraft speed, pitch and other critical data, on July 17.

On Thursday, investigators interviewed Alani and he “admitted that he accessed the ADM” and that he “inserted a piece of foam into the ADM’s inlet where the line connects and that he applied super glue to the foam so as to prevent the foam from coming off,” the complaint says. “Alani stated that his intention was not to cause harm to the aircraft or its passengers,” investigators say in the complaint. The court documents say Alani told investigators that he was upset over a contract dispute between union workers and the airlines, and the dispute had cost him money. Alani allegedly explained that he tampered with the aircraft so he could get overtime working on the plane.

The love of money is the root of every kind of evil.

The People Most Fond of Trump Want to See the Country Destroyed

A widely lauded new study from three political scientists has found that the people who are most strongly attracted to President Donald Trump are fueled by “chaos” and tend to believe that “society should be burned to the ground.”

The study, which was cited in the latest column from the New York Times’ Thomas Edsall, found that social media websites have allowed angry conspiracy theorists to gain mass audiences, whereas in the past they have been relegated to the fringes of political discourse.

That’s why they don’t care how immoral or evil he is.  They are just as immoral and just as evil.  That’s why they can’t be reasoned with and that’s why they will vote for Trump even if he rapes their own mother or wife or daughter on the White House lawn and then scrapes the baby out with a dull knife

These formerly fringe actors are driven by the need to create chaos, Edsall writes, and that’s why they are drawn so strongly to Trump’s presidency.

The study’s authors — political scientists Michael Bang Petersen and Mathias Osmundsen of Aarhus University in Denmark, and Kevin Arceneaux of Temple University — found that Trump supporters were far more likely than other voters to be sympathetic toward statements such as “I fantasize about a natural disaster wiping out most of humanity such that a small group of people can start all over” and “I think society should be burned to the ground.”

These views are a minority among voters, the authors claim, but they nonetheless have “incredible amounts of support” among the general population. In fact, the study found that 24 percent of all 6,000-plus people surveyed said they believed society “should be burned to the ground.”

We aren’t dealing with normal people.

Todd Courser: Total Depravity By a Teaparty Moralist…

This guy… A wretch among wretches.

Multiple Murderer, at 14

A 14-year-old boy confessed to shooting all five members of his family in an Alabama residence, authorities said.  The teen was “assisting investigators in locating the weapon, a 9mm handgun that he said he tossed nearby,” the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office said in a tweet.  On Tuesday, the sheriff’s office said three of the five people shot in the Elkmont residence were confirmed dead at the scene and two were airlifted in critical condition.

The well regulated militia strikes again.

I Guess They Forgot that Whole ‘Love One Another’ Thing…

A “minor conflict” between the wives of a pastor and youth pastor at a West Virginia church resulted in gunfire, leading to the arrest of the pastor’s wife for wanton endangerment.

According to The Register Herald, the pastor’s wife, Melinda Frye Toney, 44, was charged on Aug. 22, after surveillance video captured at the New Life Apostolic Church in Oak Hill on May 11, showed what happened when she allegedly fired a pistol in the church’s parking lot.

Fayette Sheriff’s Detective Kevin Willis, who also confirmed the incident with The Christian Post on Friday, told the publication that Toney had an ongoing dispute with Lori Haywood, 29, who is the wife of New Life Apostolic Youth Pastor David Haywood.  On May 11, the two women argued over a themed T-shirt that Haywood had worn to an event at the church and it was “the straw that broke the camel’s back,” Willis said.

“The pastor and the youth pastor had thought, ‘Maybe we could get them together, we can hash this out and fix this before it escalates,’” Willis explained. “Of course, it just made it worse, I think.”  Haywood, who was at the church with her children on May 11, said that before the shooting, she “called out” Toney for making dishonest statements.

Ladies… ‘love one another’.  That precludes violence and gun-play.  That sort of behavior is indefensible.

What a Baby

What a tantrum.

A Tennessee man is suing Popeyes over the “countless time wasted” unsuccessfully trying to score the wildly popular crispy chicken sandwich that sold out earlier this week, WTVC reports.  Craig Barr, of East Ridge, identified in Hamilton County court documents, accused the company of “false advertising, deceptive business practices by entity to public.”

The shortages seem to be going on across the country, as the popularity of the new menu item surges following a social media battle with Chick-Fil-A, a competitor that sells their own version of a crispy chicken sandwich.  He went on to describe his alleged hardships: “countless time wasted driving to and from Popeyes. No chicken sandwich. Was told to come back this day – still no sandwich.”

According to WTVC, Barr added that he was “hustled” after responding to an ad on Craigslist from someone claiming to know an employee who could hide away sandwiches for those willing to pay extra, then exchange them for $24. Barr says he paid the person, but never got his sandwich.  “I can’t get happy; I have this sandwich on my mind. I can’t think straight,” Barr told the Times Free Press. “It just consumes you.”

America… you’ve become a cesspool.

The Child Porn Principal

Kentucky State Police say a vocational school principal was arrested on 30 counts of related child pornography charges.  News outlets report 54-year-old Phillip Todd Wilson was arrested Tuesday and charged with 15 counts of distributing child porn and 15 counts of possessing child porn.  A news release from Kentucky State Police says they received a complaint from someone at the high school.

Wilson is the principal at Clark County Area Technology Center, which offers high school vocational courses. The center is a part of George Rogers Clark High School campus in Winchester near Lexington.

I bet he voted for McConnell.  Whether or not he did, one thing is certain, he will always be interested in children.  His is an evil inclination which nothing can cure.  He should never be allowed within 500 feet of a child or a computer for the rest of his life.

A Generation of Vipers

School officials in southern California are reportedly reopening an investigation into a group of high school students seen giving Nazi salutes on video, after more racist video and images surfaced on Wednesday.

The initial video obtained by the Daily Beast shows members of the boys’ water polo team at Pacifica high school in Orange county in an empty room that administrative officials say was later used for an athletic banquet. The video, which according to the Daily Beast was taken before an awards ceremony late last year, showed about 10 boys in a stiff-arm salute while singing a Nazi marching song.

The Garden Grove Unified school district said in a statement that the footage had been recorded last November but that administrators hadn’t become aware of the video until March. It said the students had been unsupervised at the time. The district said on Monday that administrators had “addressed the situation with all students and families involved”, but it failed to specify what disciplinary actions it took.

The Los Angeles Times reported that since Monday, officials said, several other videos showing students engaged in hate speech have surfaced. Those videos will be examined as part of the district’s reopened investigation.

More.  Parents who teach their kids to hate are raising a generation of vipers.

If Someone Compares You to God, Your Duty is to Denounce It, Not Praise It

This morning Trump tweeted

“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words.

“President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him….

….like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God…But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for…..

…..all Jews, Blacks, Gays, everyone. And importantly, he’s good for everyone in America who wants a job.” Wow!

Wow isn’t the proper response to such nonsense.  Denunciation is. If someone compares you to God, your duty is to denounce it, not praise it.  And a Christian would do precisely that.

But Trump exhibits a pattern of thought which demonstrates that he is not a Christian.  His ‘Evangelical’ supporters aren’t either.

An Ant Covered 16 Day Old Was Discovered on the Floorboard of Granny’s Van

In, you’ll not be surprised to learn, Kentucky.

Police in Kentucky say a mother and grandmother were arrested when deputies discovered a 16-day-old newborn covered in ants on the floorboard of their van.  News outlets report 32-year-old Rebecca Jean Fultz and 69-year-old Charolette J. Simpson were charged Thursday with criminal abuse of a child and failure to use a child restraint device.  A news release from Laurel County sheriff’s office says the baby was found during a traffic stop.  The statement says deputies found the baby on the floorboard between the front seats, soiled and breathing heavy. The van didn’t have a safety seat and there was no air conditioning.

Despicable.  Some people should never have children.

Billy Graham’s Grandson is an Unrepentent Sexual Predator

You would have to be a fool to follow his spiritual guidance.

Preacher Tullian Tchividjian told his congregation on a recent Sunday that he sees himself in a story from the Gospel of John.

In the passage, Nathanael questions whether anything good can come out of Nazareth, the hometown of Jesus Christ that may have had an immoral reputation in biblical times. Likening it to asking if light can come out of darkness, Tchividjian said he knows from personal experience that the answer is yes.

“I am standing here today because in my darkest moments, God never stopped holding onto me,” Tchividjian said. A few cries of “Amen” answered him from the congregation of roughly 60-80 people at the Hilton Garden Inn, which is serving as a spot for worship before they can find a permanent home in the area.

Beware the cult of the predator.

What Kind of Farcical Prison Lets a Pedophile Spend Time With a Woman When he Has Been On Suicide Watch?

The one that Jeffrey Epstein was in.

The day after he was taken off suicide watch, disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein spent at least two hours locked up alone with a young woman, in a private room reserved for inmates and their attorneys, according to an attorney who was visiting the prison that day.

“The optics were startling. Because she was young. And pretty,” said the visiting attorney, who asked that his name not be used because he didn’t want to create friction with the prison administration. NBC News has reported that Epstein paid his lawyers to sit with him in a room for eight hours a day for attorney-client meetings, allowing him to avoid his cell.

The visiting attorney went to the Manhattan Correctional Center on July 30, a day after Epstein was reportedly taken off suicide watch and transferred into the Special Housing Unit (SHU). During the hours the visiting attorney was present, it wasn’t Epstein’s main lawyer, Reid Weingarten, or other named attorneys who visited him.
