Trump Farted in Courtroom During Hush-Money Trial

“What I’m hearing from credible sources is that Donald Trump is actually farting in the courtroom… I’m hearing it from actual credible people that as he’s kind of falling asleep, he’s actually passing gas and that his lawyers are really struggling with the smell.”

This quote from Ben Meiselas, the founder of the virulently anti-Trump political action committee Meidas Touch, has gone viral spreading faster than a fart in a room with no ventilation.

This noxious allegation has been debunked by Snopes, the premier fact-checking website, but there may be a whiff of truth in it. After all, it’s widely believed that Trump is incontinent. If the fat pig can’t control his bowels, it stands to reason he can’t stop himself from farting like a loose cannon.

The judge in Trump’s hush money trial has placed him under a gag order, stopping the blowhard with the sphincter-shaped mouth from attacking witnesses in his trial. Unfortunately, the judge is incapable of stopping him from polluting the courtroom with his deadly gas.

Even when Trump is napping, he is still a menace to society, gagging his own lawyers with his indiscriminate flatulence.  

The narcissist sociopath is always tooting his own horn, even when he’s asleep in court he’s still tooting away, poisoning the courtroom with his smelly toots.

Even when he’s unconscious Trump is still poisoning the atmosphere, America won’t be rid of this ill wind until he’s dead and gone.

Trump Falls Asleep in Court with Sphincter-Shaped Mouth Agape

“Maggie Haberman, a Senior Political Correspondent for the New York Times, reported today to CNN that Trump “appeared to be asleep. His head would fall down… He didn’t pay attention to a note his lawyer passed him. His jaw kept falling on his chest and his mouth kept going slack.”

Los Angeles Magazine

Donald Trump the septuagenarian former president who calls octogenarian President Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe” can’t seem to keep his eyes open in court.

If I was in court for a speeding violation, I would be so ashamed, contrite and nervous that I wouldn’t have any problems keeping my eyes open.

But Trump who is charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree, in an attempt to hide hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels is so accustomed to being indicted that he just can’t stay awake in court.

According to Haberman Trump’s jaw kept falling on his chest and his sphincter-shaped mouth was agape. That is such a disturbing pornographic image, that would even keep Stormy awake at night.

I hope that the sketch artists who are present in the courtroom will depict Trump accurately with his sphincter-shaped mouth open and drool oozing down his triple chin.

Maybe at the conclusion of the trial when Trump is found guilty, he’ll finally wake up.

Michele Bachmann: Iran Will be Decimated if it Attacks Israel

“An Iranian attack on Israel is senseless and suicidal for Iran.

Iran will be decimated. Israel will survive and win against any Iranian attack.”

Michele Bachmann

Bachmann isn’t your typical evangelical yahoo perfunctory spouting off against Israel’s chief nemesis, she’s a former congresswoman who served on the House Intelligence Committee and was a former presidential candidate.

But events have proven how wrong Bachmann was, and she would be well advised to keep her geopolitical opinions within her home bible study.

The Iranian attack on Israel was not senseless, it was retaliation for Israel’s April Fool’s attack on the Iranian consulate annex building adjacent to the Iranian embassy in Damascus that killed 16 people, including Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi and seven other IRGC officers.

An attack on an embassy is considered an attack on the country it represents; it’s an act of war and Iran had no other option than to retaliate directly against Israel.

Israel needed to be humbled, the apartheid state needed to pay a price for committing genocide against the Palestinians.

Iran struck Israel with a swarm of over 300 drones, ballistic and cruise missiles, and Iran has not been decimated. Israel hasn’t yet responded and her chief benefactor, the Unites States, has informed the Jewish state that it doesn’t support miliary retaliation.

Iran is a bigger threat than Israel to stability in the Middle East, but America must not reflexively and unconditionally support Israel. We must criticize Israel when she acts recklessly, and military aid must be conditional.

Rep. Bob Good and Challenger John McGuire are ‘Stains on America’s Underwear’

Donald Trump is such an affront to humanity and such an existential threat to our democracy that he’s often compared to a stinking pile of human excrement.

Instead of recoiling in horror and distancing themselves from the orange sociopath most Republicans think that the only way they can remain viable is by copying Trump’s amoral behavior and inflammatory rhetoric.

In 2020 Republican challenger Bob Good defeated Denver Riggleman, the U.S. representative from Virginia’s 5th congressional district by attacking him for committing the unpardonable sin of officiating at the same-sex wedding of two campaign volunteers.

Since becoming a congressman Good has tried to establish his bona fides as a MAGA zealot by among other things voting to oust GOP Speaker Keven McCarthy and throwing the House into chaos. He is the chairman of the ultra-right House Freedom Caucus.

Good is running for reelection and he is facing a primary challenger from John J. McGuire, an election denier who has pledged fealty to Trump and promised to bring a “Biblical worldview” to Congress.

Good is vulnerable because he made the cardinal sin of endorsing Ron DeSantis in the Republican presidential primary. Although he immediately endorsed Trump after DeSantis withdrew from the race, he forever gained the enmity of Trump and his MAGA supporters.

Riggleman characterized Good and McGuire as “two amoral stains on America’s underwear.” They don’t have the heft and substance of Trump’s pile of dung, they are merely stains on the GOP’s underwear.

Virginia’s 5th congressional district is a safe Republican seat; therefore the winner will be a stain of human excrement.

Trump’s MAGA Rallies End with an Altar Call

An altar call is a tradition in most evangelical churches. After the pastor finishes his sermon, he issues an altar call. While the choir quietly sings an invitational hymn like “Just as I am”, the pastor beseeches his congregation to bow their heads, close their eyes, and pray for the Holy Spirit to harvest souls. The minister will plead with church members to come to the altar to rededicate their lives to Jesus and with unbelievers to walk down the aisle and make a public profession of faith. Even if only one or two souls respond to the altar car, it’s perceived as validation that the Almighty has blessed the service.

Trump’s MAGA rallies have always commenced with a local evangelical pastor saying a benediction, but lately his rallies now conclude with an altar call MAGA style. With music softly playing in the background, the orange messiah delivers a ten-minute finale that evokes an evangelical altar call.

Many MAGA cultists even bow their heads during Trump’s altar call, the only difference between a church altar call and a MAGA altar call is that Trump doesn’t ask his followers to come forward and rededicate their lives to him.

But I’m persuaded that after an hour of hearing their orange Savior rail against migrants, racial minorities and the LGBT community, Trump’s disciples leave his rallies inspired and motivated to spread his Gospel of hatred and violence.

Happy Eclipse Day/Rapture Day

“A total solar eclipse is taking place on Monday, April 8, 2024, visible across North America and dubbed the Great North American Eclipse by some media. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.”


For the vast majority of Americans there is nothing mysterious or apocalyptic about today’s total solar eclipse. It’s Science 101, and the lucky souls who live on the path of totality plan on celebrating this celestial event by donning cool eclipse glasses and downing a beer or two, or three.

Contrary to common belief, solar eclipses aren’t rare sightings. According to NASA there has been an average of 2.5 eclipses every year for the past 1,000 years.

But for many evangelical Christians the solar eclipse is a major eschatological event, and they expect Jesus Christ to rapture them out of this world during the four minutes of darkness. I’m not surprised at the gullibility and stupidity of evangelicals; they birth a new conspiracy theory every time they have a bowel movement.

While we are looking at the sun, with our protective glasses, evangelicals are looking for the Son of God to emerge from the eclipse. I won’t go into the details of why they believe Jesus will return during the eclipse, because it would make your head spin, if it doesn’t outright explode.

I don’t believe anything that’s not based on science, but wouldn’t it be great if Jesus did return today and raptured the racist, idiotic and hateful and Trump-loving evangelicals out of this world?

If Biden Debates Trump He Will Lose the Debate and the Election

Donald Trump is a boxing fan, and he usually has a ringside seat at major boxing events. Even though Trump weighs almost 300 pounds, never exercises, wears diapers instead of boxing trunks, and has tiny doll hands, he views himself as a pugilist. Trump styles himself as a counterpuncher, but actually he’s more of a down-puncher. He strikes out at subordinates and people who he deems incapable of punching back.

The orange pig will never enter a boxing ring, but the next best thing for him is the debate stage. Trump is dying to debate the physically frail and cognitively challenged Joe Biden.

Last month, the combatative politician used his Truth Social platform to dare Biden to step onto the debate stage with him, declaring that he’s prepared to debate the Democratic incumbent “ANYTIME, ANYWHRE, ANYPLACE.” The former president expressed a desire to see ten debates, rather than the usual three general election debates.

Even though Trump is just as senile as Biden he would demolish, destroy and disembowel the octogenarian president. At the first verbal jab Biden’s dentures would go flying out, he would lose his train of thought and maybe control of his bowels as well.

There is no way that Biden can compete against an adversary who breaks all the rules, talks over his opponents and lands more low blows than legitimate punches.

If Biden is foolish enough to debate Trump, he will lose the debate and the election.

Happy Easter and Transgender Day of Visibility

President Joe Biden is facing withering criticism from Donald Trump and his evangelical enablers for proclaiming March 31 as “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

This is faux outrage is exceedingly disingenuous for evangelicals are well aware that “Transgender Day of Visibility” is an annual event that is always celebrated on March 31.

Biden is a devout Catholic who always makes a public display of observing Easter and Christmas, he would be loath to do anything that would diminish any Christian holiday.

I don’t consider religiosity a virtue, and a president shouldn’t observe, commemorate, publicly celebrate or even acknowledge any religious holiday. The separation between church and state is sacrosanct, and I find it deeply offensive whenever any politician tries to curry favor with the electorate by invoking the name of God.

America is a secular democracy, and on March 31, 2024 we are free to celebrate Easter, Transgender Day of Visibility, or the pagan springtime goddess Eostre. Or maybe you are like most Americans who simply consider today just another weekend to eat a chocolate egg, relax and have a good time before we return to work.

Trump Threatens Biden with Image of President Hog-tied on Pickup Truck

As a dog returns to his own vomit, and a pig wallows in the mire after having been washed, Donald Trump returns to the cesspool of violent imagery whenever he feels a need to rile up his base.

And with President Joe Biden seeing a rise in his polls following his State of the Union speech, a desperate Trump posted a video on his Truth Social platform depicting Biden hog-tied on the bed of a pickup truck festooned with Trump 2024 insignia.

The twice-impeached and four times indicted sociopath regularly incites political violence, and it can have real world consequences, or have we already forgotten the failed insurrection of January 6, 2021? Therefore, it’s incumbent upon reporters and bloggers to put Trump on blast every time he resorts to violent rhetoric.

This latest disturbing image was calculated to appeal to the orange messiah’s redneck base, after all only his cultists read the garbage that he posts on his social media platform.

The offensive post didn’t depict a businessman in a Toyota Prius running over Biden, it showed Biden hog-tied in the tailgate of a pickup truck. I’m sure there are multitudes of MAGA fanatics who fantasize about having Biden hogtied in the back of their Ford 150 truck.

This vile Trump post may push one of his disciples over the edge. Enough is enough! I call on responsible Republican pundits and GOP leaders to denounce Trump’s violent imagery.

Trump Hawks ‘God Bless the USA Bibles’

“The former president took to Truth Social Tuesday to urge his supporters to buy the God Bless the USA Bible — a $59.99 Bible inspired by country singer Lee Greenwood’s song.

‘Happy Holy Week! Let’s Make America Pray Again. As we lead into Good Friday and Easter, I encourage you to get a copy of the God Bless the USA Bible,’ Trump posted, linking to a website featuring the books.”


In 2019 Donald Trump, the antichrist personified, autographed Bibles during a tour of tornado-devastated communities in Alabama. If the narcissist defiled Bibles by signing them with his Sharpie, I wouldn’t be surprised if he hired Russian hookers to urinate on them, and then sell them to his evangelical supporters as “the Golden Showers edition of God’s Word.”

Everything Trump touches turns to shit, but to his disciples he’s King Midas, and they believe everything he touches is worth its weight in gold.

I believe the “God Bless the USA Bible” will sell out, Trump’s followers equate patriotism with Christianity, and they will buy the cursed Bibles knowing it will fill their messiah’s coffers.

“God bless the USA Bible”? I would feel more comfortable buying a “God damn the USA Bible”, especially now as evangelicals cite the scriptures as a justification to support Israel’s genocidal war against Palestine.

Trump Doesn’t Deserve a Second Term, He Deserves a Life Term Behind Bars

When reality star and pompous businessman Donald Trump descended the golden escalator in his garish Fifth Avenue building to the perfunctory applause of curious onlookers and paid actors, he opened his trap and toxic racist rhetoric emanated from his sphincter-shaped orifice.

Who can forget his infamous remarks in which he labeled Mexican migrants rapists, criminals and drug dealers. Trump is a master at projection, and he projected his fraudulent criminal and sexual predatory behavior on the hardworking Mexican undocumented workers in search of the American Dream.

Needless to say, immigrants are model citizens, they are loathe to break any laws of their new home country, lest it hinders them from obtaining a green card, and one day citizenship.

Sadly, when America elects its Republican and Democratic presidential nominees, all too often they don’t select the best candidates. Witness the physically frail and senile Democratic nominee, Joe Biden and the morbidly obese and senile racist, Donald Trump.

Mexican immigrants aren’t the criminals, the twice-impeached and four times indicted Trump who is facing 91 criminal charges is one of the most notorious criminals to ever seek a political office.

Hispanic immigrants aren’t the rapists, it’s Trump, the serial sexual predator, who was found guilty of rape in a civil trial.

Brown and black immigrants aren’t the ones who have a problem with drugs, it was Trump’s White House that was awash in uppers, antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. That should come as no surprise to anyone, how else could aides and staffers survive working in such a chaotic and corrupt administration?

Trump doesn’t deserve a second term; he deserves a life term behind bars.

F Donald Trump

Evangelicals’ public rhetoric and private conversation has always been hateful and dismissive of religious and racial minorities, liberals and towards anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their Medieval religious beliefs.

Pre-Trump they never allowed their odious speech to degenerate into obscenities and vulgar expression. In fact, they were so averse to profanities that they were always quick to demand that a “parental advisor warning” be slapped on any album with explicit content or even just a few curse words.

But since they adopted Donald Trump, the stinking pile of human shit, as their new messiah, they praise God for every obscenity that emanates from his sphincter-shaped mouth and they no longer think it’s a sin to sprinkle their conversation with four-letter words. Evangelicals find it almost impossible not to use cuss words when demonizing racial minorities, immigrants and the LGBT community.

Well, I find it impossible not to use dirty words when talking about the dirtiest mother fucker who ever entered the realm of politics, Donald Trump.

Fuck Donald Trump, fuck every church that supports him, and fuck white evangelicals who sacrilegiously worship the trick-ass, mother-fucken wanker.

The D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA is Wonderful

I started posting editorials for the online edition of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in 1998, and when my essays were cited by established print publications like the New York Times and the Associated Press, I presciently told me friends that in the near future newspapers would be obsolete.

Almost three decades later and newspapers may not be obsolete, but they have seen a drastic drop in circulation, and many only have an online presence.

Twenty-eight years later I’m no longer a big fish in a small pond, I’m just a minnow in an ocean of bloggers, podcasters, influencers and vloggers, and my online essays receive virtually no attention from the mainstream media.

Sometimes I submit letters to the editor to local newspapers, and recently in a letter that was published by the Bedford Bulletin I mentioned that I have lived in Lynchburg for 24 years and never visited the D-Day Memorial.

Bill a retired gentleman who volunteers as a tour guide and is also part of the maintenance crew, read my letter and sent me an email offering to give me a tour of the D-Day Memorial. His friend Reggie drove me to Bedford and back to Lynchburg.

Bill has an encyclopedic knowledge of World War II in general and D-Day in particular. In my 66 years I’ve taken many tours of museums, memorials and other attractions, and no tour guide has ever impressed me as much with his knowledge of the attraction, respect for the visitors and love for his job. We were joined in the golf cart tour by his friends and fellow volunteers, Steve and Reggie.

Thank God for community newspapers like the Bedford bulletin that are still publishing print editions, and thank God for salt of the earth gentleman like Bill, Steve and Reggie.

Lauren Boebert: ‘God Only Cares About Faith’

Rep. Lauren Boebert is the far-right evangelical darling whose stock-in-trade is peddling wild conspiracy theories, babbling about the Biden crime family and brandishing assault rifles.

Evangelicals are very tolerant of the moral and criminal failings of Republican politicians as long as they adhere to their anti-abortion, anti-LGBT and anti-immigrant agenda.

However, since September, 2023 when Boebert was captured on video vaping, uttering obscenities and groping her date’s penis during a performance of the family-friendly Beetlejuice, she has felt a need to burnish her evangelical credentials.

To that end, the woman of God who flipped the bird as she was being escorted out of the Beetlejuice musical performance, gave a Bible study lesson on the Nazi-friendly Rumble network:

“We know nothing pleases God except faith. It’s not our works that please him”, the biblically illiterate bimbo had the audacity to proclaim. Of course, anybody who has a basic understanding of the New Testament knows that good works spring from faith, and that without works faith is dead. In other words, it’s not OK for Boebert to give her date a hand-job in public because she has faith in Jesus.

Bitch please! Stick to musing about how Hunter Biden’s dick pics on his Laptop from Hell somehow leads to the conclusion that Joe Biden must be impeached.

Trump vs Biden? Just Shoot Me!

It’s not even spring and the world’s greatest democracy has now chosen the presidential nominees for the two major parties: Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden.

The GOP and the Democratic Party have a stranglehold on the presidential selection process, and there’s zero chance that a Third-Party candidate will emerge to seriously compete against these despicable and senile candidates.

This tragic state of American politics can best be demonstrated in a metaphor:

Imagine that both parties are holding political events in Las Vegas at the same time, and naturally all the brothels are doing thriving business. You walk into a cathouse, and the Madam tells you that only two past their prime working girls are available:

Sleepy Joanna: she has a second job doing grannie porn videos in order to make ends meet. She’s emaciated and you fear she may have a heart attack doing the dirty deed, and you wonder about your legal liability. It’s likely that she will forget your name, and blurt out the wrong name when she pretends to climax.

Dorky Donna: she has a second job doing BBW porn in order to pay the bills. She’s fat as a pig and you fear that she may suffer a stroke while you’re knocking boots. You’re certain that the narcissist cow will scream her own name when she comes, and who wants to put up with that shit? 

The madam of the house of ill repute is waiting for you to make your decision, and you finally decide that you’d rather put your privates through a meat grinder than have sex with either of those sorry prostitutes.

Who am I voting for: The senile Biden is better than the senile human excrement Trump, but maybe I should just kill myself.

Pathological Liar Trump Calls Himself ‘Honest John’

In the early morning hours of Tuesday when all decent and honest people are sleeping, Donald Trump had the unmitigated gall to post this on his Truth Social media platform:

“For the good of our now failing Nation, and in order to inform the American people of what is going on in our Country, we must immediately have a full scale debate between Crooked Joe and Honest Don. I’m ready to go, ANY TIME, ANY PLACE!”

Trump the pathological liar, the mendacious miscreant who told over 30,000 lies during his administration christened himself with the moniker “Honest Don”

If a used car salesman at “Honest John’s Auto Emporium” tells you the rusted heap he’s trying to sell you is in cherry condition, if the Madam at the brothel tells you that the new working girl with dead eyes and heroin track marks all over her arms is a virgin, and if “Honest Don” known to everybody else as a lying piece of shit tells you anything, don’t believe a word they say.

It’s fair to label Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe”, “Skeleton Joe” or “Hospice Joe”, but he’s basically a decent person and it’s a disservice to refer to him as “Crooked Joe”

However, it would be fair to call the twice-impeached, twice divorced and 4 times indicted former president Trump “Crooked Don.”

If there is a debate between Biden, 81, and Trump, 77 there should be an AI powered Truth-O-Meter on stage to call out Trump in real time every time he tells a whopper.

And there should be a device on the floor under Biden that delivers an electrical shock every time he starts nodding off or goes off on a tangent about Corn Pop or some other nonsense.

Dementia Joe or “Honest Don” is going to be the next president. We’re Fucked.

Bedford, VA Needs an Amtrak Train Station

I’m a senior citizen who rarely drives: the stress of rush hour traffic, the irritation of traffic scofflaws, and the anxiety of skyrocketing gas prices means that my car rarely leaves my driveway.

I’m even more in dread of traveling by air: the humiliation of being groped by TSA Agents, the fear of terrorism, and the boorish behavior of passengers means that I only fly when there’s no other way of reaching my destination.

But I love Amtrak, I don’t have to worry about nodding off at the wheel, or being pinned between two large passengers in a cramped airplane cabin.

Trains invoke a sense of nostalgia when folks weren’t in a rush to get to their destination as quick as possible. Riding a train is a therapeutic experience, the gentle swaying of the cars lulls you to sleep as you sit in your cushy and ample seat.

I love taking the Amtrak to Washinton D.C., and I’m delighted to learn that there may soon be an Amtrak station in Bedford. I’ve lived in Lynchburg for 23 years but I’ve never been to the D Day Memorial, but as soon as Amtrak comes to Bedford, I will purchase my train ticket.

I hope Bedford secure the funding for the Amtrak train station.

Trumpism is a Virus

“Trumpism is an authoritarian political movement that follows the political ideologies associated with Donald Trump and his political base. Trumpism is a movement that incorporates a wide range of right-wing ideologies such as right-wing populism, national conservatism, neo-nationalism, and neo-fascism. Trumpist rhetoric heavily features anti-immigrant, xenophobic, nativist, and racist attacks against minority groups.”


Wikipedia describes Trumpism as a political movement, but is could also be characterized as a religious movement with Donald Trump as a sociopathic messiah of a religious cult.

But in this essay, I will liken Trumpism to a virus that’s found fertile soil in redneck trailer parks, Nazi compounds and white evangelical churches.

White evangelicals are especially susceptible to this insidious and virulent virus because they have been conditioned to unreservedly trust and believe in their pastor and religious leaders. So, it’s an easy transition for them to accept any stupidity, obscenity and lie that emanates from Trump’s sphincter-shaped mouth as the Gospel truth.

Trump is all about vengeance, hatred and racism and these vile sins resonate with white evangelicals who are marked more by what they hate (immigrants, LBGT community, feminism, Muslims, liberals) than what they supposedly love, peace, liberty and religious freedom.

Pre-Trump white evangelicals hoped that Jesus would rapture them out of this evil world, where they would spend eternity with Him in heaven. Today’s evangelicals are hoping that their orange messiah will establish the Kingdom of God in heaven, with them ruling over liberals and racial and religious minorities. Their white nationalist Christian regime which they consider a paradise would be a dystopian nightmare for everyone else.

The sociopath Trump and his gullible supporters are a blight on the American landscape, but is there any cure for Trumpism? The Truth is the only antidote, but very few evangelicals will humble themselves, accept the truth, and admit that they have been hoodwinked by a grifter and pathological liar.

The good news is that voters who believe in racial diversity, religious freedom and democracy outnumber the neo-fascist Trumpists. But evangelicals vote as a bloc, and Trump may win if we don’t vote and encourage all of our friends and family to vote.

When Racist Trump Mistakes Obama for Biden, You Know He’s Senile

I support Joe Biden, 81, over Donald Trump, 77; the Democrat presidential candidate who resembles Mr. Magoo is preferrable over the Republican presidential candidate who resembles a Joe Stalin or an Adolph Hitler.

I will stipulate that President Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive issues, the octogenarian has suffered more mental lapses than Carter has little pills.

I will also stipulate that Trump is a blatant racist, he has dog whistled more times in the last eight years than a typical NBA referee has blown whistles during a season.

Even most Democrats will concede that Biden is senile AF, but Republicans are loathe to admit that Trump is senile as all get out.

How senile is Trump? He is so senile that the raging racist has repeatedly mistaken Barak Obama for Joe Biden. During a recent campaign speech in Richmond, VA he said this:

“Shortly after we win the presidency, I will have the horrible war between Russia and Ukraine settled. I know them both very well, and we will restore peace through strength. Get that war settled. It’s a bad war. And Putin has so little respect for Obama that he’s starting to throw around the nuclear word.”

Trump hates Obama simply because he’s black, and when the unrepentant racist mistakes a black former president for the current white president, you know he belongs in a rest home.

Sickening Spectacle: Franklin Graham Embraces Trump at the Border

Part time evangelist and full time Donald Trump fluffer Franklin Graham posted a pic of himself embracing Trump with the caption: “Look who I ran into at the border today! Donald Trump was a great encouragement to many here.”

Franklin is being disingenuous; he didn’t just happen to “run into Trump” at the border. The former president is protected by a phalanx of Secret Service Agents and nobody meets him without making prior arrangements.

Franklin is visiting border towns because it’s an election year, and he wants to amplify Trump’s anti-immigrant message.

The televangelist is preaching a false message by declaring that “Trump was a great encouragement to many here.” Trump’s hateful rhetoric may have been encouraging to his supporters who came to hear his speech, but it was anathema to the predominately Hispanic community of Eagle Pass.

Instead of embracing the blatant racist at the border, he should have been there to welcome migrants who just crossed the border. There are dozens of pro-immigration Biblical verses, including Leviticus 19:34:

 “The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”

If Jesus returned to Earth, he would deport Franklin and Trump to Mexico, or maybe he would send them directly to hell, and he would welcome all the migrants with open and loving arms.

World Demands: Ceasefire in Gaza Now!

After Hamas terrorists invaded Israel and murdered, raped, mutilated, set on fire and tortured about 1,00 civilians, including babies and toddlers, the world reacted with outrage against the terrorists, and empathized with the grieving nation.

But after five months of the Israeli war machine’s relentless and indiscriminate bombing of Gaza, that has resulted in the death of 30,000 Palestinians, the displacement of almost two million civilians and the destruction of most of the buildings and infrastructure, including hospitals, schools and mosques, the civilized world is calling for an end to the Israeli brutality.

Humanitarian agencies, human rights groups, United Nation officials, and world leaders are calling for an immediate ceasefire.

However, Israel continues their campaign of vengeance, bombing civilian areas that result in the death of hundreds of civilians and only a handful of Hamas militants.

White American evangelicals as a bloc are the only friends Israel has left; they can commit genocide because after all they reason Israelis are Jehovah’s Chosen People and the killing of Palestinians who don’t belong in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) will only hasten the return of Jesus Christ.

White Evangelicals and Netanyahu’s Israel are on the wrong side of history, and the Biden administration needs to stop being complicit in the destruction, death and devastation of Gaza.

Ceasefire Now!

Biden’s Annual Exam Must Include Cognitive Tests for Dementia

“President Joe Biden spent about 2 1/2 hours at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Wednesday for an annual physical that will be closely watched as the 81-year-old president seeks reelection.”

Associated Press

I have zero faith that the White House will release an accurate and truthful assessment of Joe Biden’s health. After all, after his last exam in February 2023, his physicians declared Biden “healthy, vigorous and fit to handle his White House duties.” This glowing assessment was in spite of Biden’s stiff gait and sluggish pace that’s indicative of a dead man walking, his days are clearly numbered.

Biden doesn’t have to put on a costume for Halloween, with his wispy white hair, prune face and bewildered expression he looks like Mr. Magoo’s ghost.

Biden’s annual exam must include cognitive tests for dementia, and the results must be released to the public. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to ascertain that Biden is senile AF. Anyone who has seen Biden stumble down stairs, lose his train of thought, wander around incircles searching for the exit from the stage, will deduce that he is senile.

If Biden’s cognitive abilities are tested and the results are released to the public, he wouldn’t dare perpetrate the fraud of running for reelection.

Trump Struggles to Pronounce ‘Evangelical’

Joe Biden is in obvious physical and mental decline; he’s like an octogenarian who wandered out of the house in the middle of the night and has no idea how to get back home.

Donald Trump is as senile and demented as Biden but because he’s physically robust, voters don’t consider him as far gone as the current resident of the White House.

One of the ways in which Trump’s senility manifests itself is in his incoherent screeds that barely resemble stump speeches. His diatribes are riddled with obscenities and malapropisms, he mangles the King’s English like a Norwegian on crack.

I give him a pass when he mispronounces or mangles the name of a head of state, but only a senile old man with cognitive issues would stumble over the word “evangelical.”

In a recent speech to the National Religious Broadcasters in Nashville, Trump struggled to say “evangelical” and “evangelist.” It’s been reported that Trump refers to evangelicals in profane terms in private; I give him credit for not slipping and calling them ignorant shitheads in his speech.

What a marvelous democracy we have, we will be only slightly better off if Biden stumbles to the finish line ahead of Trump.

Rep. Bob Good Booted from Trump Store

Virginia’s 5th congressional district congressman Bob Good has sterling conservative credentials, after all he’s slightly to the right of Atilla the Hun and he’s the head of the far-right House Freedom Caucus.

Under normal circumstances such conservative bona fides are enough to discourage any Republican from challenging him in the primary. But Good endorsed Ron DeSantis in the 2004 Republican presidential primary, and he endorsed Donald Trump only after the Florida governor dropped out of the race.

In the MAGA cult that’s the unpardonable sin, and regardless how conservative Good may be, Trump supporters will never forgive him for not endorsing their orange messiah from the start.

Good’s heresy in endorsing DeSantis emboldened VA Del. John McGuire to run against him in the GOP primary, and now Good is running scared. So scared in fact that he made the embarrassing rookie mistake of inviting his supporters to attend the grand opening of a Trump store in Farmville, a McGuire campaign event.

Good joined his supporters in crashing McGuire’s party, and the store’s owner was incensed by the interloper’s sacrilegious action and she was caught on tape angrily asking him to leave.

A Trump store is akin to a place of worship, and the orange buffoon’s supporters will never forgive Good for defiling their temple with his audacious stunt.

I’m a progressive and both Good and McGuire are anathema to me, but Good is substantially more of a rightwing nut, and I hope that he loses his primary.

We celebrate Valentine’s Day on the most frigid month of the year, because when old man winter has us in its icy embrace only the appreciation and celebration of human love can thaw our hearts.

But in February, the month of love, we also celebrate and commemorate the love between humans and their pets. Today is National Love Your Pet Day, but for real animal lovers every day is love your pet day.

Almost every household in America has at least one pet, that means that this day should be recognized and observed by as many people who observe Christmas or New Year’s Day.

National Love Your Pet Day, could very well unofficially be called National Call in Sick Day, because anyone who truly loves their pets will want to spend the entire day with them.

I’m retired and I spend every day pampering and catering to my precious pooch, Princess. Today will only be different because I will use my blog to encourage pet lovers everywhere to shower their pets with love and devotion.
