My Heart Skips a Beat Whenever Betty White Trends on Twitter

The atrocious words and unspeakable behavior of Donald Trump and his MAGA sycophants and acolytes like Representatives Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar, pillow maven Mike Lindell, and the Rev. Franklin Graham usually dominate the top Twitter trends.

Betty White trends every few weeks, and her wholesomeness, awesomeness, and intrinsic beauty is an antidote to the vile and venom that thrives on Twitter, and you’d think I’d be happy when I see the iconic queen of TV trending.

But my heart skips a beat every time I see her trending on social media, and that’s a very bad thing for someone afflicted with a serious heart condition.

The reason my heart palpitates when I see the legend trending on Twitter is because the first thing that comes to my mind is: OMG! Is Betty alright? I hope to God she didn’t die!

Betty White should be blocked from trending; my heart can’t take it! Or at least Twitter should automatically put a “the Queen is OK” caption whenever she starts trending. I hope Betty White doesn’t trend again until her 100th birthday on January 17, 2022. If I live long enough to celebrate Betty’s 100th birthday, by life will not have been in vain.

Pro-Trump Painter Depicts Him as a Deity and Superhero

“Lena Ruseva, a 44-year-old Soviet emigre, is causing a stir with her provocative series of paintings depicting the former president.

In ‘Trump: Parallel Universe’ — a collection of 30 paintings — Ruseva imagines Trump as Neptune, a Buddhist monk, Tarzan and the face of the sphinx. One image shows him making contact with alien life; another features him riding a great white shark while draped in an American flag.”

The New York Post

Donald Trump is as physically repulsive as he is morally degenerate, and if I was commissioned to depict him in a heroic light in a series of paintings, I would kill myself. There is no amount of artistic license in the world to transform an ugly fat gnome into a God or superhero.

Trump’s evangelical supporters speak of him in a reverential tone, and treat him like the Second Coming of Christ. It comes as no surprise that an artist would paint him as a deity and a superhero.

Ruseva’s collection of 30 Trump paintings is entitled “In Trump: Parallel Universe”. How appropriate, Trump’s sycophants live in a parallel universe where white is black and evil is good.

Trump lovers attribute the virtues of patriotism, courage and wisdom to a cowardly moron who cares only about himself.

Ruseva’s work has been well-received in MAGA land, however her paintings have been skewered by art critics. I’m not a Republican or a critic, all I know is that her paintings make me want to hurl.

Donald Trump Jr. Ruins Thanksgiving by Posting Video Depicting Trump Bursting Out of a Turkey Dancing to YMCA

“Donald Trump Jr. was mocked for missing the mark after he shared a viral video on Twitter that appeared to show his father, Donald Trump, bursting out of a turkey on Thanksgiving.

The ex-president’s son shared a doctored version of the ‘save the neck for me’ scene from the film ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’ in which steam blows out of a bird that Chevy Chase’s character Clark Griswold is carving because it’s overcooked.”

Huffington Post

This video perfectly depicts a typical Thanksgiving dinner, in hell! Imagine sitting at the dinner table waiting to gorge on the succulent Turkey and all the delicious trimmings and as the patriarch of the family is carving the turkey a grinning Donald Trump burst out of the bird dancing to YMCA.

If such a scene unfolded in hell, I would immediately launch a rebellion against Satan, because I’ve never committed a sin that merits such sadistic torture.

If such a travesty occurred in heaven, I would beg the Almighty to cast me down to hell. I can tolerate a demon ramming hot coal up my bunghole, but I couldn’t survive a dancing orange orangutan bursting out of the Thanksgiving turkey.

Damn Donald Trump Jr. for ruining my Thanksgiving. Considering the movie’s scene centers on Christmas and not Thanksgiving, I hope Junior doesn’t ruin our Christmas but releasing the video again on Xmas.

I am certain God will smite me if I embed this satanic video on my page, instead I will provide this link:

Trump Presented With Honorary Black Belt in Taekwondo! WTF?

“Former President Donald Trump was presented with an honorary ninth dan black belt in taekwondo over the weekend by the head of one of the sport’s governing bodies at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla.”

New York Post

Donald Trump wouldn’t know Taekwondo from Kimchi, and he has never attended a Taekwondo match.

Trump’s honorary ninth dan black belt carries as much credibility and gravitas as a diploma from Trump University.

Russian President Vladimir Putin was bestowed with the same honor during a visit to Seoul in 2013, but at least he’s a martial arts master who has a black belt in Judo.

The twice-impeached former president said he will wear the taekwondo ​outfit to Congress if ​he is elected president again. Sure, why not, it beats wearing a Bozo the Clown outfit.

An emphasis on speed and agility is a defining characteristic of Taekwondo. The short-fingered vulgarian can’t even change his diapers without an assist from Mike Pence.

This Korean martial artis discipline has a focus on mental and ethical discipline, etiquette, justice, respect, and self-confidence. The orange orangutan is the last person that comes to mind when I think of these virtues.

The presentation of this honorary black belt took place in Mar-a-Lago, a most appropriate venue for this farcical ceremony.

Norwegian Commercial Depicting Romance Between Santa & Harry is the Heartwarming Video We Need This Christmas

Good will and good cheer are hard to come by, especially during the holiday season. People are too busy dodging shoppers in malls, getting drunk at Christmas parties and fighting holiday traffic to contemplate peace in the world and good will in their neighborhoods. At this time of the year there’s a plethora of Grinches and Scrooges and nary an angel to be found.

But in the midst of all the chaos, confusion and strife of the Xmas season I’ve found a small treasure, a commercial from Norway of all things.

I rarely watch broadcast TV because I hate commercials; I barely have the patience for a ten second Internet ad. But a four-minute commercial for Norway’s postal service called “When Harry Met Santa” kept my attention for every blessed second.

This commercial depicts the sweet romance between Santa Claus and a man he only sees annually. Harry is heartbroken that he must wait so long in between visits.

At the end, Santa tells Harry, “Well, I arranged some help this year, so I can be with you,” and then the two kiss.

If this sweet and innocent commercial doesn’t give you the Christmas spirit, your heart is smaller and stonier than that of the Grinch.

Photo Depicts Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and His Madam Ghislaine Maxwell Being Blessed by Pope John Paul II

A newly unearthed photograph depicts pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and socialite and pimp Ghislaine Maxwell being blessed by John Paul II in 2003.

Reportedly they took a private plane to the Vatican to receive the papal blessing.

The pontiff did not know that Epstein and Maxwell trafficked underage girls to the wealthy and powerful, all he knew was that Epstein was a financier and Maxwell was a socialite. Nothing inherently wrong with those professions, but how did that qualify them for an audience with the pope?

This photo speaks of the utter corruption of the Roman Catholic Church, this patriarchal organization is infamous for coddling, condoning and protecting an army of pedophile priests.

Pedophile Epstein and his madam were able to manipulate their way into the Vatican, to be blessed by His Holiness, Pope of the pedophile priesthood.

Trump Releasing ‘Our Journey Together’ Photo Book in Time for Christmas

The functionally-illiterate Donald Trump previously teased that he was writing “the book of all books.”

His evangelical supporters, who treat him as the Messiah, were probably expecting a tome destined to be included in the canon of Scripture.

The rest of us who were expecting a coloring book or at best a graphic novel, weren’t far off the mark:

“Today I am thrilled to announce I will be publishing a wonderful book in time for Christmas!” Trump said in a statement. “‘Our Journey Together’ is a collection of beautiful photos captured during our very successful time in the White House.”

The coffee table book features hundreds of photographs that were “handpicked by the President” and captions that he wrote.

What publishing company would stoop so low as to publish a book written by the twice-impeached disgraced president? A publishing company founded by his son Donald Trump, is the answer.

I wouldn’t give my worst enemy Trump’s book for Christmas, but I don’t doubt that most MAGA households will have his book on their coffee tables.

White Evangelicals are as Execrable as Their Orange Messiah, Donald Trump

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.”

Exodus 20: 3 & 4

Anything a Christian places before God, whether it’s something material, a philosophy or a human being is an idol.

Admiring a human being isn’t a sin, there are many individuals worthy of admiration: who doesn’t admire the intelligence of Albert Einstein, the, the physical prowess of Lebron James, the courage of Martin Luther King Jr., and the integrity and eloquence of Abraham Lincoln?

But the most admirable human being in the world falls far short of the perfection of God, and a believer must never ascribe the qualities of deity to any man or woman.

White evangelicals are guilty of the sin of idolatry, they have elevated the physically and morally repulsive Donald Trump to the level of a deity. Evangelist Franklin Graham compared House Republicans who voted for Trump’s impeachment to Jesus’ betrayer, Judas Iscariot. Pastor John MacArthur proclaimed that true believers had to vote for him. Donald Trump, not Jesus Christ, is the Messiah that evangelicals worship.

They accept every utterance that emanates from Trump’s sphincter-shaped mouth as the Gospel, and they take umbrage at anyone who ridicules or criticizes his vain babbling.

You will become like the person you worship. White evangelicals have become as racist, misogynist, homophobic, vindictive, xenophobic and just plain evil as their Orange Messiah.

History will judge Donald Trump and his evangelical followers as one of the greatest threats ever posed to our secular democracy.

Pastor John Hagee’s Cornerstone Church Holds Rally Where Audience Chants ‘Let’s Go, Brandon’

John Hagee’s Cornerstone Church in San Antonio hosted the Reawaken America Tour when a speaker led the audience in a chant of “Let’s Go, Brandon,” a euphemism for “Fuck Joe Biden.”

Several prominent Christian figures condemned the chant, arguing it was out of place at a gathering held in a Christian church.

I agree that such a hateful and disrespectful chant is out of place at a Christian house of worship, but it’s not out of place at an evangelical church. I draw a distinction between Christianity and the Evangelical movement, which is a bastardization of the faith.

John Hagee is an influential evangelical leader and a vehement defender of former president Donald Trump, and the evangelical movement has made common cause with Trump and every vile thing he stands for.

Instead of abjectly apologizing the Cornerstone Church issued the following press release:

“This past week, Cornerstone Church facilities were used by an outside organization. Cornerstone Church is not associated with this organization and does not endorse their views.”

Hagee rented his facilities to an organization he knew was far-right and white nationalist in its leanings, and he is responsible for everything take takes place in his church. Unlike Hagee I’m not a sanctimonious asshole who pretends to be shocked by the use of profanity. All I have to say is Fuck John Hagee, Fuck Reawaken America and Fuck Evangelicals.  

Passage of the Infrastructure Bill a Monumental Victory for Biden Administration

On August 2021 the Senate gave overwhelming bipartisan approval to a $1 trillion infrastructure bill to rebuild the nation’s deteriorating roads, bridges, waterways ports and airports.

The vote, 69 to 30, was shocking, considering the toxic atmosphere of the Senate where bipartisanship consensus is almost impossible to achieve. If the Democrats in the Senate passed a resolution stating that the world is round, the vote would be 50 to 50, with all Republicans voted against the measure, if their Dear Leader Donald Trump declared that the Earth is as flat as Taylor Swift’s butt.

This was a monumentally historical legislative victory, and the Democrats who control the House should have immediately approved the bill and sent it to President Joe Biden to sign.

But progressive Democrats held the infrastructure bill hostage until moderate Democrats committed to supporting the social policy and climate change package, known as the Build Back Better Act.

On November the House finally passed the infrastructure bill and a couple of weeks later Biden finally signed the bill. Shame on the Democrats for playing politics and needlessly delaying passage of the infrastructure bill that will rebuild and repair our failing infrastructure, make our buildings more energy efficient, create thousands of good jobs and stimulate the economy.

But we must not lose sight of the fact that administrations going back decades punted the ball, and the Trump administration famously held an infrastructure bill almost every other week.

So, congratulations are certainly in order for the Biden administration. Bravo!

Fascist Michael Flynn Wants to Establish a Christian Theocracy

At a far-right rally Michael Flynn uttered the following words which should terrify anyone who treasures our democracy:

“If we are going to have one nation under God which we must, we have to have one religion. One nation under God & one religion under God”

Flynn is the former national security advisor in the Trump administration who was pardoned early this year by the former president after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI.

I vehemently disagree with Flynn’s fascist declaration. No nation, least of all a democracy, should be under the thumb of any deity. It’s not the Bible, but the Constitution that unites our pluralistic society. Organized religion seeks only to destroy every secular institution and power structure that doesn’t bow down before their myths and superstitions.

Flynn and his ilk despise our democracy, and they seek to establish a theocracy for a white Christian minority. Imagine if a Muslim politician said:

We must have one nation under God, and we must have one religion. And that God is Allah and that religion is Islam.

Evangelicals would have their panties in a twist, and they demand that politician to be removed from office.

We must have one nation under the Constitution where every individual is free to worship his God, or no God.

Twitter Permanently Bans Newsmax White House Correspondent For Tweeting COVID Conspiracy Theories

“On 1 November 2021, Newsmax White House correspondent Emerald Robinson tweeted a warning: ‘Dear Christians: the vaccines contain a bioluminescent marker called LUCIFERASE so that you can be tracked’. Robinson’s tweet was soon deleted, and her Twitter account temporarily locked for repeated violations of Twitter’s COVID-19 misinformation policy (before being permanently banned on 10 November 2021).

Health Feedback

My first thought is why was a crazy conspiracy theorist who works for Newsmax, a cable news network that spews rightwing propaganda and conspiracy theories 24/7, granted credentials to serve as a White House correspondent?

My second thought is, I’m not surprised that Robinson, an evangelical Christian, believes that the COVID vaccines contain a marker so they can be tracked by the federal government.

After all, evangelicals believe in all types of nonsense like the notion that we are living in the End Times and that Jesus will soon Rapture his believers out of this world, meet them in the air, and I guess transport them to paradise.

WWJD? Jesus would rapture the racist, judgmental, and hateful evangelicals out of this world and dump them in the Lake of Fire.

Newsmax disavowed Robinson’s claims and she is currently off the air, but she hasn’t been fired. This screwball who plays at being a journalist should have been summarily fired by Newsmax, and her White House credentials should have been revoked.

Donald Trump Will Win if He Faces a Frail Joe Biden or a Cackling Kamala Harris in 2024

Donald Trump almost destroyed our democracy during his tenure, and after his landslide election loss to Joe Biden only his incompetence and the courage of a few key Republican election officials prevented his coup from being successful.  

The Trump administration was marked by chaos, corruption and criminality, there were no guard rails and no adults in the house to curb his worst instincts.

America breathed a collective sigh of relief after Joe Biden was inaugurated, and many of us fooled ourselves into thinking that Trump would never be elected president again.

But Trump retains complete control of the Republican Party and his base is as committed as ever to their orange messiah.

If the physically frail and mentally impaired Joe Biden survives his term in office, he will be 82 if he runs for reelection. I don’t think Biden will have the energy or the inclination to run for reelection, and I don’t think the Democratic Party would allow such a farce to play out.

I don’t think Vice President, Kamala Harris, is perceived as Biden’s likely successor, currently her approval rating is a dismal 28 percent.  The Elmo of the Biden administration doesn’t have the gravitas, charisma or political skills to run a successful presidential campaign.

Donald Trump will win if he faces Harris or Biden in 2024, and this time he will be completely out-of-control, with no worries about reelection to curb his behavior. It’s not too early to worry about who will succeed Biden, and it’s incumbent upon Democratic presidential hopefuls to start planning their presidential campaigns.

Kellyanne Conway is Like a Tinder Date From Hell

You finally meet your Tinder date and you are appalled to discover it’s Kellyanne Conway, your testicles shrivel, your eyes turn glassy and you swear on your mother’s grave that you will never swipe right again.

Then after a few drinks the clock strikes midnight, and she turns into the Crypt Keeper and starts uttering racist garbage and you determine to sue Tinder if you survive your date from hell.

Kellyanne is trending on Twitter because in a Fox News interview she uttered this patently ridiculous statement:

“I worked in that White House for four years. We never even heard of a such of a thing. There was no supply chain crisis”

Conway is stuck in a twilight zone where alternative facts are accepted as Gospel. No supply chain crisis during the Trump administration? Really? Bitch, please!

I remember a shortage of toilet paper, hand sanitizer, rubbing alcohol, PPE Gear (masks, gloves, ventilators), COVID tests and vaccines.

Conway the Crypt Keeper is really more like Freddy Krueger or any of those movie monsters who are seemingly invincible, who keep coming back from the dead to terrorize a new generation of clueless teenagers.

Conway please just shut up; I don’t ever want to see you trending on Twitter again.

Joe Biden and Jill Biden Take a Stroll Along Delaware Beach

“President Joe Biden and first lady Dr. Jill Biden spent the weekend in Delaware, where they went for a late afternoon stroll Sunday along the beach at Cape Henlopen State Park.

Like any other couple there enjoying the last days of fall, the casually-dressed Bidens — they both wore sneakers and she wore jeans — snapped a selfie together (above), with the president holding the camera and wrapping his arm around the first lady.”

President Joe Biden and first lady Dr. Jill Biden taking a stroll on a beach shouldn’t be news, but this normal activity by a loving couple is noteworthy because it’s a contrast to the chaos, confusion and criminality of the Trump administration.

Notice all the ways this Biden date is different from a typical Trump date. Was there ever a Trump date night during his administration?

Biden was wearing a baseball cap emblazoned with the seal of the president of the United States, not a red MAGA cap that is a symbol of racism.

Joe was wrapping his arm around Jill, and she wasn’t swatting away his hand.

Jill’s coat didn’t have a snarky or mean message.

The Bidens were taking a stroll on a beach located in a state park, not in a private luxury resort. I treasure the normal behavior of the Bidens; I hope Donald Trump never runs for president again

Marilyn Manson’s Appearance at Kanye West’s Sunday Service Has Evangelicals Hoping He Has Converted to Christianity

Shock rocker Marilyn Manson appeared on stage with rapper Kanye West, who now goes by the name Ye, and pop singer Justin Bieber at West’s Sunday Service.

Manson led a prayer circle with West and Bieber, and nodded as the Bieber proclaimed, “we cast out any demonic presence on this day in the name of Jesus.”

I doubt that Manson who has multiple credible sexual assault allegations against him, West who is a fervent supporter of the abominable Donald Trump and Bieber who had a monster hit with “Baby”, a ditty that no doubt is on an eternal loop in hell, have the power to cast out any demons.

Evangelicals are salivating over the prospect that Manson’s appearance at West’s Sunday Service means that he has converted to Christianity.

Evangelicals don’t realize how toxic they are, normal persons aren’t impressed with an Uncle Tom rapper, a bubble gum pop star and a shock rocker with a predilection for sexually assaulting young women.

Real Christians, and probably even atheists, are praying that the Almighty will cast out these demonic music stars from the pop charts.

Most White Evangelicals Wish America Was a Christian Centric Nation

“The researchers at the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) just released their 2021 American Values Survey. There’s a lot of information in the full report, but one chart in particular deserves a closer look.

The question basically asked people if they would rather live in a pluralistic nation… or a predominantly Christian one. And only 13% of white evangelicals longed for a pluralistic country. 57% of them wanted to live in a mostly Christian bubble.”

Hemant Mehta

Christian nationalism is the belief in the notion that America was founding on Biblical principles and that the federal government should take active steps to preserve its Christian character.  

Many white evangelicals are Christian nationalists and they want to transform the Republican Party into a Religious Party and convert our democracy into a theocracy.

The strength of America is our religious, cultural, and ethnic diversity, but the pluralistic nature of our democracy is anathema to evangelicals. They live in a mostly Christian bubble: they stream PureFlex instead of Netflix, get their news from Fox News and Newsmax instead of ABC News and CNN, and denounce science and facts and extol religious myths and fanciful conspiracy theories.

Their main dogma is the belief that Donald Trump is the Messiah the Almighty has anointed to establish a theocracy. One man’s utopia is another man’s dystopia, and I am determined to expose the racism, misogyny, homophobia and extremism of the American evangelical movement.

I will burst their Christian bubble and ensure that their vision of Cristian nationalism will never become a reality.

Listening to Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ is a Transcendent and Orgasmic Experience

Mariah Carey is the unofficial Queen of Christmas, and every other woman, even the Virgin Mary, must bow down before the ethereal creature who embodies the Christmas spirit with every breath she takes and every note she sings.

The Stoneleigh P bar in Dallas, is attempting to snuff out the Christmas spirit by limiting Carey’s Yuletide classic, “All I Want for Christmas is You” to be played on the jukebox only one time a night.

This is an abomination! Sacrilege! Heresy! An affront to the Queen of Christmas! Every bar, every church, every public building should be playing “All I Want for Christmas is You” on a loop from November 1 to December 25.

All I Want for Christmas is for “All I Want for Christmas is You” to be declared the official Christmas song of America.

If Mariah came to my house and sang her iconic Xmas song to me on Christmas Day it would be like the Rapture, Harmonic Convergence and my birthday all rolled into one.

Trump’s PAC Offers Christmas Wrapping Paper Bearing His Likeness for $35 Donation

“With just 54 days until Christmas, Donald Trump’s political action committee, Save America, is enticing supporters of the former president to donate more than $35 in exchange for ‘Official Trump Wrapping Paper.’

‘President Trump asked us to personally reach out to you because he wants to make sure you get our NEW Trump Gift Wrapping Paper in time for Christmas,’ an email sent to supporters Monday reads.”

Donald Trump isn’t the Grinch who stole Christmas, he’s the Grifter who exploits Christmas to squeeze every last red cent from his gullible supporters.

Perhaps Melania could do a commercial for Trump’s Christmas wrapping paper: Who gives a fuck about Christmas stuff and decorations? But I will accept expensive fucking Xmas gifts wrapped in Trump wrapping paper.

Trump’s sycophants have a penchant for wearing Trump-branded attire to signify their allegiance to their Orange Messiah, and I have no doubt that Save America will sell out their stockpile of “Official Trump Wrapping Paper.”

If I receive a gift wrapped in Trump wrapping paper, I would throw it away without unwrapping it because nobody who supports the short-fingered vulgarian has the good taste to buy a gift that I would find appealing.

On second thought I might keep the Trump wrapping paper and use it as toilet paper.

Exodus From Organized Religion is America’s Salvation

“Gallup’s pollsters began measuring church membership in 1937 — 84 years ago — and found that 73% of Americans belongs to a church. Earlier this year, Gallup reported that membership in any church or denomination fell below 50% om 2020 and now stands at 47% and dropping.”

Blue Ridge Muse

Atheists, agnostics and people who simply believe that the existence or non-existence of a deity has no bearing on how they live their lives find educational, recreational and invigorating ways to spend their Sunday mornings. You’ll find these good folks reading a book, jogging, walking a dog, watching a football game or enjoying a leisurely breakfast while the pious are sitting in their pews listening to their preacher.

If you’re an evangelical who attends church religiously, but have misgivings about your pastor mixing the Gospel with reactionary politics and are embarrassed to be seen entering a church where Trump is revered as a messiah figure, you should join us and find a more productive ways to spend your Sunday mornings.

There’s a nationwide exodus of spiritual people walking away from organized religion and worshipping God in nature, in fellowship with people of diverse belief systems, and in solitary contemplation.

WWJD? If Jesus returned today, I doubt that he would attend a megachurch or any kind of church; on Sundays, you would find him working in a soup kitchen, volunteering in a hospital or prison or playing with a pooch.

Find freedom from organized religion, you’ll get much more joy and fulfillment playing with your pet on a Sunday morning than listening to your pastor’s divisive sermons.
