National Make a Dog’s Day

“National Make A Dog’s Day on October 22nd provides an opportunity to give all dogs the best day of their lives. The day not only encourages visits to shelters, but it is also a reminder to animal lovers everywhere to adopt instead of shop for a new pet.

Approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters in the United States annually, many being relinquished by their owners. Worse still, approximately 35% of the animals that enter shelters are euthanized. While numbers continue to decline, the need for adoption continues to be overwhelming. One sure way to make a dog’s day is giving them a new, loving home through adoption.”

NationalDayCalendar.Com

The purpose of National Make a Dog’s Day is to encourage animal lovers to adopt a shelter dog.

I adopted my pooch, Princess, from an animal shelter, and I’m confident I made her day when I took her home with me, but she’s made my day every single day since I rescued her.  

Princess is persuaded that her reason for living is to make me happy: she jumps on me with joyful exuberance when I take her walking, she gazes at me lovingly when I’m watching TV or surfing the Internet, and she jumps on my bed at night to keep me company. Her life revolves around me, and when I’m happy she’s happy.

Adoption is just the beginning of the process of making a dog’s day. A canine is concerned primarily with our welfare, it’s time to reciprocate. Every day we just ask ourselves, “How can I make my pet happy today?” When was the last time you took your dog to the dog park? When’s the last time you bought her a new toy or a super-sized bone?

When you do something special for a friend or family member, they don’t always appreciate it, but I guarantee your doggy will appreciate every little thing you do for him.

I don’t know about you, but for me every day on my calendar is National Make a Dog’s Day.

Pope Francis Declares Support for Civil Unions for Same-Sex Couples! Big Deal, How About Allowing Gays to Marry?

“Pope Francis has declared support for civil unions for same-sex couples for the first time, according to the Catholic News Agency.

The Pope made the historic remarks in a new documentary film, ‘Francesco,’ which was released in Rome on Wednesday.

‘Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable over it,’ the Pope said in the film, the Catholic News Agency reported.

What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered,’ the Pope said.”

CNN

I’m glad that the leader of the historically homophobic Catholic Church has finally declared his support for civil unions for same-sex couples. The pontiff has suggested in past interviews that he isn’t against civil unions, but this is the first that that he has explicitly supported same-sex civil unions.

The pope argues that homosexual people have a right to be in a family. He states that they’re children of God and have a right to a family. Damn Skippy, they are the children of God, not the step-children of God, and they shouldn’t be treated like second-class citizens. The pope should advocate for gays and lesbians to have the right to marry, just like their heterosexual brothers and sisters in the faith.

The pope should also declare that priests should have the right to marry, whether it’s to a fellow priest, a sister or anybody else.

I’m not a Catholic, and I think organized religions are the greatest threat to democracy and liberty, but unfortunately millions of people around the world live their lives according to the dictates of the Catholic Church, and that’s why I wish the Church would join the 21st century and treat gays and lesbians with dignity and respect.

Pat Robertson Claims God Told Him Trump Will Win Reelection and Usher in End Times

Pat Robertson reports that he has been told by God that Trump will win reelection … and it will bring about the beginning of the End Times.

I try not to engage in conversation with racists, morons, buffoons and assholes, and it makes me wonder why the Almighty has a penchant for speaking to assholes the likes of Pat Robertson. Shouldn’t the omniscient Creator of the universe exercise some discipline to whom He speaks?

I’m guessing the Lord doesn’t speak to me because when I fart, I don’t cup my ears to interpret the Word of God emanating from my ass. White Trump supporting evangelicals who believe that a satanic cabal of pedophiles controls the world have no problems believing Robertson when he imparts divine wisdom by breaking wind.

It should be noted that this isn’t the first time that Robertson has predicted the end of the world, in the 80’s he prophesied:

“I guarantee you by the end of 1982 there is going to be a judgment on the world.”

I’m not a prophet or a theologian, but I predict that these are the end times for the 90-year-old snake oil salesman.

I’m not going to place my right hand on the Bible, but I predict that Joe Biden is going to win in a landslide. God isn’t whispering in my ear or speaking through my ass; I’m relying on the polls that show Biden leading in the national polls, and more importantly in all the swing states.

Knock On Wood: Trump is Going to Lose in a Landslide

Donald Trump isn’t a nuanced thinker; he doesn’t see things in shades of gray. Trump has a binary perspective in life, you’re either a winner or a loser. If you inherit or by any means accrue wealth you are a winner, and if you are poor you are a loser. Trump promised his supporters that they would win so much, that they would be sick and tired of winning.

Trump’s supporters, aside from the millionaires and billionaires, aren’t doing much winning lately, his mismanagement of the coronavirus has plunged Americans into financial disaster.

Trump, who views himself at the ultimate winner, is looking more and more like he’s headed to an election loss of epic proportions. The braggard-in-chief is openly contemplating the prospect of losing, while Joe Biden is warning his supporters against overconfidence in the face of national polls and swing state polls that show him winning by double digits.

There are only 15 days until the general election and 23 million votes have already been cast. Time is running out for Trump, and his desperate attempts to smear the genial Biden with conspiracy theories about his son have failed to gain traction with the general public.

Thursday’s final presidential debate, is Trump’s last and best chance to change the direction of this election, he may have better luck changing the course of the mighty Mississippi river by using his tiny hands to slap the water in the other direction.

Trump cannot afford another bad debate performance. His out-of-control performance in the first debate helped Biden extend his polling advantage. But after almost four years in office, we know that Trump will always be Trump. He’s not going to be respectful to his opponent and the moderator, and he’s not going to restrain his bombastic rhetoric.

I predict that Trump will suffer another bad debate performance, and I predict he will go down to defeat on November 3, 2020.

Trump’s Addiction to MAGA Rallies Guarantees His Defeat

Donald Trump is like a husband whose addiction to strip clubs is putting his marriage in jeopardy. In spite of his wife’s pleas to end to his infidelity and stop wasting their money on lap dances, he double downs on hitting the strip clubs with his friends. He’s intoxicated by the attention he elicits from exotic dancers when he makes it rain, and he pays a fortune for a lap dance, when he could spend a fraction for sexual intercourse from your average hooker. He will continue to patronize strip clubs until he’s broke and his spouse has left him.

Trump is addicted to his MAGA rallies, and he has promised to hold a super-spreader MAGA every day until the election. Trump hasn’t attempted to broaden his appeal; he has refused to temper his vitriolic rhetoric and divisive language.

Trump feeds off the toxic ambience of his campaign rallies, and racist stump speeches energizes his base, but they do nothing to expand his base, in fact they repel anyone who isn’t a cult member.

But Trump prefers the safety and comfort of his revival meetings with his white evangelical base over the fear of rejection of appealing to anyone who hasn’t swallowed the Kool-Aid.

Trump’s campaign strategy of appealing to his base only will lead to his defeat; like the husband who is addicted to strip clubs his campaign will end up bankrupt, but unlike the aforementioned husband his base (wife), will remain faithful until the bitter end.

Trump the Moron Retweets Satirical ‘Babylon Bee’ News Story About Biden and Twitter

“The Babylon Bee is a news satire website that publishes satirical articles on religion, politics, current events, and well-known public figures. With intentional irony, the site describes itself as ‘the world’s best satire site, totally inerrant in all its truth claims.’”

Wikipedia

Twitter Shuts Down Entire Network To Slow Spread Of Negative Biden News https://babylonbee.com/news/twitter-shuts-down-entire-network-to-slow-spread-of-negative-biden-news via @TheBabylonBee Wow, this has never been done in history. This includes his really bad interview last night. Why is Twitter doing this. Bringing more attention to Sleepy Joe & Big T”

Donald Trump tweet

The Babylon Bee is the conservative version of the Onion, the most popular satire site on the Internet. Most conservatives are devoid of humor and imagination, consequently the Bee lacks the bite and brilliance of the Onion.

Any moron can quickly decipher that the Babylon Bee is a satirical site, the motto on the Bee’s Twitter page proudly proclaims: Fake new you can trust. One of their recent stories was about how an appeals court overturned the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Donald Trump isn’t just any moron, he’s a fucking moron who has a distant relationship with the real truth but embraces and disseminates fake news.

Trump has retweeted countless fake news and conspiracy theories, and you’d think he would recognize the Bee’s Twitter story as fake. The short-fingered vulgarian who is on Twitter 24/7 should have realized that Twitter was never entirely shut down.

Trump is furious that Twitter blocked its users from tweeting a dubious New York Post story about the alleged business activities of Hunter Biden. Trump has probably never read an entire news story in his life; he just reads headlines and he’ll retweet any headline that’s pro-Trump without reading the article.

After Trump retweeted the Babylon Bee story, the site’s CEO Seth Dillon tweeted: “The Babylon Bee is the president’s most trusted news source.” It’s appropriate that a fake president who’s a pathological liar would retweet a fake news article and thereby giving incredible publicity to a satirical news site.

Trump the Super Spreader-in-Chief to Hold a Super-Spreader Rally Every Day Until Election

To no one’s surprise Donald Trump’s bout with a serious case of COVID-19 failed to temper his anti-science rhetoric; he’s still downplaying the coronavirus and refusing to treat it as an existential threat to our society.

In fact, the super spreader-in-chief is touting his own recovery as proof there is nothing to fear from a pandemic that’s has killed more than 217,000 Americans. Never mind that no other coronavirus patient in the world has a hospital suite dedicated to his recovery, and that the expensive experimental therapies he benefited from aren’t available to anyone else.

The Covidiot has promised to hold a super-spreader rally every day until the election. In his COVID-friendly rallies his maskless supporters are packed like sardines, and they bask in the presence of their Savior who has overcome the coronavirus.

Trump supporters live in an alternate reality where the coronavirus has no power to infect the righteous who worship the vulgarian-in-chief. They believe Trump’s argument that the pandemic is almost over, and that the coronavirus will miraculously disappear after he wins the election.

One thing is clear, the virus won’t disappear anytime in the foreseeable future, regardless who wins the election. But the pandemic of misinformation, conspiracy theories, and constant chaos will go away if Joe Biden wins.

Cow Hugging is the Animal Therapy We Need in the Age of Trump and the Coronavirus

“Therapy animals are not a new concept, but in a world where mental health is being tested by an ongoing pandemic, people are searching for comfort it what might seem like unusual places.

A practice that originated in the rural town of Reuver in the Netherlands, ‘koe knuffelen,’ which means ‘cow hugging’ in Dutch, is gaining global popularity, according to a BBC report.”

Fox 5

“Cow tipping is the purported activity of sneaking up on any unsuspecting or sleeping upright cow and pushing it over for entertainment. The practice of cow tipping is generally considered an urban legend, and stories of such feats viewed as tall tales.”

Wikipedia

Although most tales of cow tipping are apocryphal, the fact that we’ve all heard them is evidence of the low regard that we have for them. I love all animals and I don’t see any humor in a joke where the punch line is tipping over a cow. A cow will jump over the moon before you catch me poking fun at the ridiculous looking but adorable creatures.

Enough about cow tipping, cow hugging is a brand-new trend in 2020. Who would have imagined that such a historically horrible year would produce such a wonderful new fad?

Therapy animals aren’t a new concept, but it’s usually dogs or cats that come to mind. I live in a city and I don’t see any cows frolicking in front lawns when I jog around my neighborhood, but I would be willing to go out to the boonies to find a cow that I can hug.

“Cow cuddling is believed to promote positivity and reduce stress by boosting oxytocin in humans, the hormone released in social bonding. The calming effects of curling up with a pet or emotional support animal, it seems, are accentuated when cuddling with larger mammals.”

Fox 5

You may think cow hugging is more than a little bit silly, but in the time of the twin horrors of a pandemic and Trump I am willing to try anything to calm me down.

Lindsey Graham Says Blacks Can Go Anywhere in South Carolina if Conservative

“Graham made the comment in a televised ‘conversation’ with his political rival, former South Carolina Democratic party chair Jaime Harrison, the first African American to serve in the role.

He made the remark in the context of political careers, and said Harrison would lose because he is a Democrat, not because he is Black.

‘Do I believe our cops are systemically racist? No. Do I believe South Carolina is a racist state? No. Let me tell you why. To young people out there, young people of color, young immigrants, this is a great state, but one thing I can say without any doubt, you can be an African American and go to the Senate but you just have to share our values.’

He went on to say: ‘If you’re a young, African American or an immigrant, you can go anywhere in this state, you just need to be conservative, not liberal”.

The Guardian

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham believes that if you’re a young African America you can go far in South Carolina and in Trump’s America as long as you are a conservative.

Graham wears rose-colored glasses in which systemic racism and police brutality don’t exist and blacks and other minorities can go far as long as they subscribe to conservative dogma that dehumanizes immigrants, Muslims, blacks, gays and women.

In other words, as long as they are Uncle Toms like the other senator from his state, Tim Scott, they are welcome under the GOP big tent. Just slap on an ingratiating smile like Scott, and you will go far young black man.

But if you are a black liberal who spouts nonsense like criminal justice reform, racial equality, reparations, Medicare for all …, you will be treated like a second-class citizen.

The voters of South Carolina must reject Graham’s plantation mentality, it has no place it a religiously and ethnically diverse democracy.

Graham is a self-loathing gay man who knows his fellow Republicans would turn against him if he sashayed out of the closet. He denies his sexual orientation, and he expects African Americans to likewise deny the progressive agenda that accepts them as equal members of our democracy. Sorry Lady G, not everyone is a sniveling coward like you.

Roman Catholic Church’s Altar Removed, Burned After Priest and Dominatrices Have Sex On It

“The lights inside Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church in Pearl River were on later than usual on Sept. 30, so a passerby stopped to take a closer look.

Peering inside, the onlooker saw the small parish’s pastor half-naked having sex with two women on the altar, according to court documents. The women were dressed in corsets and high-heeled boots. There were sex toys and stage lighting. And a mobile phone as well as a separate camera were mounted on tripods, recording it all.”

NOLA.Com

The most surprising thing about this story is the threesome involved a priest and two women, and not two altar boys.

The priest and two sex workers were consenting adults, therefore besides the hypocrisy on display, I wouldn’t care what goes on inside a “house of God.”

But the church was lit up like a Christmas tree and the sexual shenanigans were clearly visible from the street, thus I am outraged. Indeed, all three participants were charged with obscenity because their sexual gymnastics were visible from the street.

Religion is the oldest and most lucrative con game and I expect clerics to engage in activities that they preach against, however it’s unusual for “men of God” to flaunt their disobedience to Biblical morality.

The church’s altar was removed and burned after the priest and dominatrices had sex on it. It’s not the altar that was defiled, it’s the heart of the priest who takes money from his congregation and preaches nonsense that he doesn’t believe in that is defiled.

I would advise the congregation of Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church in Pearl River to do something useful with their time on Sunday morning like watching NFL games, watching cat videos on YouTube or jogging instead of attending mass.

Mike Lee Tweets His Hatred of Democracy

“Democracy isn’t the objective; liberty, peace, and prospefity are.  We want the human condition to flourish.  Rank democracy can thwart that.”

Mike Lee

This tweet wasn’t posted by an authoritarian despot but by a United States senator who you’d think would be proudly proclaiming all the benefits of democracy.

This tweet is just oozing with contempt and disdain for American democracy. I would expect a Putin or a Kim Jong-un to dismiss our form of government as “rank democracy”, not a Republican senator who drapes himself in the American flag.

No senator, America isn’t a “rank” democracy, it’s a glorious democracy, a precious democracy, a supreme democracy.

Democracy is the objective; liberty, peace and prosperity for all Americans, not just for elitists who can’t spell the likes of Mike Lee.

Republicans have shown their true colors, they’re not interested in achieving a more perfect union and a democracy where everyone regardless of gender, religion, sexual orientation or race will thrive and prosper. They lust for fascism and theocracy.

Lee should be careful, because if Republicans succeed in turning our democracy into a theocracy, he would be an outcast just like immigrants, racial minorities, gays and lesbians and women. Lee is a Mormon and evangelicals consider the Church of Latter-Day Saints a cult.

Lee states that he wants the human condition to flourish, the human condition is to celebrate power and to demonize and oppress everyone who doesn’t belong to the elite class.

It’s democracy, and democracy alone that can lift us up from the human condition.

The citizens of the great state of Utah should demonstrate that they value democracy by voting Lee out of office.

Sex Pot Meet Kettle: Melania Calls Stormy Daniels a ‘Porn Hooker’

“STORMY Daniels has accused Melania Trump of ‘selling her pussy and soul’ after the first lady was caught on leaked tape calling her a ‘hooker.”

On Tuesday, the porn star took to Twitter to issue a foul-mouthed rant about Melania, 50, after the first lady was recorded saying Daniels was a prostitute.”

Mirror

Melania’s former aide Stephanie Winston Wolkoff released a tape of the First Lady making this unkind comment about Daniels:

“Annie Leibovitz shot the porn hooker, as she will be in one of the issues, September or October.”

Trump was jealous that Daniels was featured in a 2018 issue of Vogue magazine. Even though Melania is a former model she’s been featured in relatively few magazine covers, especially when compared to the universally beloved Michelle Obama.

It takes real nerve for Melania to refer to the adult film actress, exotic dancer and film director as a “porn hooker”, considering that in her younger days she was not averse to modeling for softcore porn magazines. Sex pot meet the kettle.

Stormy had a one-night stand with Donald Trump, a mistake which she deeply regrets, but Melania indeed sold her pussy and soul by marrying the short-fingered vulgarian.

You could technically argue that Daniels is a prostitute because she gets paid to have sex in adult films, but what would you call a woman who marries a morbidly obese and grotesquely ugly billionaire almost 25 years her senior? Gold-digger?  A woman who sold her pussy and soul?

In a moment of weakness Stormy slept with Trump because he had promised to help her career, but she admitted her mistake and moved on with her life. In contrast Melania has been married to Trump for over 15 years; being with that loathsome monster for so many years has infected her pussy and defiled her soul.

Melania: For the love of God Be Best and stop hating on an intellectually and morally superior celebrity.

Trump’s Gasping for Air Viral Moment Perfect Metaphor for his Moribund Campaign

President Donald Trump was prematurely discharged from Walter Reed Medical Center following his coronavirus diagnosis and the former reality talk show host, choreographed a triumphant return to the White House. A White House that is now a coronavirus hot zone, thanks to his cavalier attitude toward the deadly virus.

Trump walked up the stairs to the Truman balcony for the photo op. The demented moron imagined his Mussolini Moment, preening before the camera, giving a salute and a thumbs up, and removing his mask would resonate with his base who considers him a cross between General Patton and Jesus Christ.

This show biz moment was ruined by the reality that the 74-year-old obese coronavirus patient is still in the grips of the virus. Trump tweeted that he was feeling better than he did 20 years ago, but the video depicting him gasping for air made him look like he had aged 20 years during his short hospital stay.

Even his most loyal supporters must have shuddered at the sight of their selfish and self-absorbed leader putting his family and staff at risk with his reckless decision to return home and removing his mask. A White House photographer was just inches away from him on the Truman balcony chronicling his insane antics.

The gasping for air viral moment speaks a thousand words of the vanity and emptiness of the Trump administration. It’s a perfect metaphor for a campaign that is on life support, gasping for air.  

Secret Audio Recording Reveals Melania Trump Fuc*ing Hates Christmas

Former friend and adviser to Melania Trump, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, author of “Melania and Me “, released audio recordings of phone calls with the First Lady.

One of the audio clips revealed Melania’s disdain for decorating the White house for Christmas:

“I’m working like a — my ass off at the Christmas stuff that, you know, who gives a fuck about Christmas stuff and decoration. But I need to do it, right. And then I do it and I say that I’m working on Christmas, planning for the Christmas. And they say, ‘Oh, what about the children? That they were separated.’ Give me a fucking break.”

Melania wasn’t just disgusted that she felt obligated to decorate the White House for Christmas, she doesn’t give a flying fuck about the most important holiday in the Christian calendar.

This is a most interesting revelation considering that her husband portrays himself as the holy warrior who ended the “War on Christmas.” Trump has frequently boasted that thanks to him we are able to say “Merry Christmas” again, although he has never explained who or what prevented Americans from saying “Merry Christmas.”

White evangelicals venerate Trump the short-fingered vulagarian as a Messiah, and Melania the former soft-core porn model as the Virgin Mary, but the truth is that Saint Peter wouldn’t allow this most un-Christian couple within a social distance from the Pearly Gates.

Give me a fucking break, indeed! Trump ended the “War on Christmas?” Melania is a godly Christian woman who loves Christmas? Bah, Humbug, bitches!

Uncle Tom Tim Scott Fails to Condemn Trump for Embracing Proud Boys

Tim Scott is the only black Republican in the Senate, and it would be great if he was the first GOP leader to speak truth to power whenever Donald Trump makes a racist statement or fails to unequivocally condemn white supremacists.

For example, when Trump refused to condemn the white supremacist group, the Proud Boys, during the presidential debate, and instead instructed them to “stand back and stand by”, he should have immediate blasted Trump.

Instead, in the timid and subservient voice of a House Negro he said:

“I think he misspoke in response to Chris Wallace’s comment. He was asking Chris what he wanted to say. I think he misspoke. I think he should correct it. If he doesn’t correct it, I guess he didn’t misspeak.”

Scott is one of a handful of token blacks in Trump’s orbit, he is frequently called upon by his Master to stand by his side, with his grinning Uncle Tom grin, when the president is celebrating a legislative victory.

It’s clear that Trump didn’t misspeak, for years Trump has made racist remarks and has stubbornly refused to distance himself from racists.

“If he doesn’t correct it, I guess he didn’t misspeak.”

Allow me to translate Scott’s words, in effect he is saying, “if Trump doesn’t clarify his remark, I guess he is a racist. Oh well, it’s not my place as a House Negro to condemn my master.”

Trump Biden Debate Was a Shit Show, a Dumpster Fire, a Disaster of Biblical Proportions

The first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden was a shit show, a dumpster fire, a disaster of Biblical proportions …

No debate that includes Trump will ever be compared to a Lincoln-Douglas debate, but to prevent the spectacle from devolving into a WWE Battle Royale there must be a modicum of structure.  

The first presidential debate was divided into six 15-minute segments during which the moderator, Chris Wallace, posed the same question to former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump. The candidates had two minutes to respond to each question, and basically the rest of each segment was a free-for-all.

Trump interrupted Biden during the initial question of each segment, and the remaining part of each segment was a torrent of cross-talk, insults, lies, and just general mayhem.

Wallace is an excellent interviewer and a competent moderator, but he had as much control of the debate as a substitute teacher has at a reform school. No moderator, not even the even-tempered and competent Wallace could have reined in the wild animal, unless he was equipped with a button on his desk to deliver a shock to Trump every time, he broke the debate rules.

Trump doesn’t respect judges, generals, legislators, so it shouldn’t have come as any surprise that he wouldn’t respect a debate moderator, even one from his favorite news outlet, Fox News.

Biden has already committed to participating in the final two debates, but since Trump didn’t follow the rules agreed to by both campaigns, he isn’t under any moral obligation to participate in any more debates.

But if Biden decides to debate Trump again, he should demand that the moderator kill the microphone when a debater interrupts or exceeds his time limit.

Last night’s debate was a shit show that left everyone involved including Trump, Biden, Wallace, the viewing audience and democracy itself covered in excrement.

I’ve had enough, the only other debate I will watch is the one between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris.

Honest Politician & Wildfire Survivor Susan Gorin: ‘It’s Like God Has No Sympathy, No Empathy

“’I’m sort of numb at the moment,’ said Sonoma County Supervisor Susan Gorin as she drove away at about 1 a.m. from her evacuated home in the Oakmont community on Santa Rosa’s eastern edge. All of Oakmont’s 4,500 residents were ordered to leave.

Gorin has lived this nightmare before. Three years ago, the Nuns Fire consumed her Oakmont home, which is still being rebuilt while she lives in another home in the same neighborhood. While fleeing to a hotel in Novato, Gorin contemplated the horrendous prospect that the same fate could befall her once more.

‘It seems surreal to me that we would be facing this again in some of the same areas that lost so many homes so traumatically just three short years ago,’ Gorin said. ‘It’s like God has no sympathy, no empathy for Sonoma County.’

But Gorin blames the worsening fire threat not on a heavenly cause but rather a human one: climate change.”

Beaumont Enterprise

This summer and early fall California fires have consumed almost 4 million acres, rendering a significant part of the state an apocalyptic wasteland.

In the aftermath of natural disasters like wildfires, hurricanes and earthquakes shell-shocked survivors usually praise and thank God, specifically Jesus, for saving them seemingly oblivious that they are implying that the Almighty extended no such tender mercies to those severely injured or killed by the “Act of God.”

Survivors thank Jesus when they are interviewed by reporters, and only as an afterthought thank the first responders who risked their lives to save them.

If just one believer cursed God after nature’s wrath destroyed his home and killed his family members, it would reflect well on his humanity and give an unbeliever pause that maybe his faith has some validity.

Susan Gorin who has experienced the vengeance of Mother Nature more than twice told a reporter:

“It’s like God has no sympathy, no empathy.”

What an honest and human reaction, coming from a politician at that. A typical politician, whether he/she believes in God or not, would automatically invoke the Deity and ensure his/her constituents that Jesus would save the day.

I don’t know if Gorin is a person of faith or an atheist or agnostic, but I sure as hell wish she was the president of the United States instead of the racist buffoon who invokes God frequently to pander to his white evangelical base.

Trump Spent $70K On Hairstylist! Who Knew It’s So Expensive to Hire Russian Hooker to Perform Golden Showers and Blow Dry His Hair?

“A stunning New York Times exposé of the President’s tax returns Sunday revealed a pitifully inept businessman and a serial tax avoider crushed by massive debts that could expose him to conflicts of interest given his position as President and power to help undisclosed lenders.

In 2016 and 2017 each, Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes — far less than many Americans who are working hard amid a deep recession to stay afloat. Trump took huge deductions — including $70,000 to take care of his hair.”

CNN

The New York Times expose of Trump’s tax returns exposed him as the worst businessman in the history of capitalism, a fake billionaire who owes over a billion in loans, and a vain fat baboon who spends tens of thousands in hairstyling costs.

You’d think it would be relatively inexpensive to maintain Trump’s unique hairstyle: $100 a day for a Russian hooker to rain golden showers on his wispy hair. Five bucks for a comb to perfect his combover from hell. Twenty bucks for a blow dryer to lend his hairdo that defies physics and common-sense look.

The con-in-chief wrote off $70,000 in hairstyling for The Apprentice, arguably the mother of all questionable tax write-offs. I remember last year when Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spent $250 for a haircut and color and was mercilessly ridiculed by outraged members of the Republican party.

These shocking revelations won’t do anything to persuade Trump’s base that he is a vain con man who doesn’t deserve their loyalty. Trump could kidnap a hairstylist in the middle of 5th Avenue in broad daylight and force him to give him a haircut and he wouldn’t lose any supporters. If Trump made an appeal on Twitter for donations to pay for his hairstylist, he would raise a million dollars in minutes.

I would love to light a match to Trump’s hairdo and watch in delight as the hairspray saturated coiffure erupted in a conflagration. Just a fantasy, I’m not encouraging anyone to punish Trump for being such a tax cheat.

Democrats and Independents Must Turn Out in Droves to Prevent Trump From Stealing the Election

America’s most consequential presidential elections have been decided over how presidential candidates dealt with the following wars: Civil War, World Wars I and II, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Every presidential election cycle we hear the same refrain: This is the most important election in history! Even though America is at peace, this time it’s really one of the most important presidential elections in history, because democracy itself is at stake.

Trump has run roughshod over every pillar of our democracy: freedom of the press, the independence of the judiciary, the trustworthiness of the election process. The choice isn’t between the Republican Party and the Democrat Party, it’s between Trump and democracy.

America’s endless wars, Afghanistan and Iraq aren’t even background noise, the central fight is over Donald Trump.

Trump assumed office with no overarching agenda except to burnish his brand, and not just his political brand, but his business and entertainment brands as well.

Trump hasn’t sought to ensure his reelection by expanding his base, instead of making overtures to his political opposition, he ridicules, threatens and demonizes them.

Trump is betting that the blind loyalty of his base will be enough to prevail in a historically close election that may very well be decided by the Supreme Court that includes three Justices that he nominated.

It’s incumbent upon us who love democracy to turn out in droves on election day to prevent this nightmare scenario.

Sick and Tired of MAGA Rallies? Vote Trump Out of Office

This summer, Donald Trump went almost two months without holding a MAGA rally. Even as he downplayed the coronavirus pandemic, he realized that holding super-spreader campaign rallies wouldn’t be politically expedient.

The corpulent demagogue became politically emaciated without the energy he feeds on at MAGA rallies. Trump without campaign rallies is like a televangelist holding Zoom revival meetings, it just doesn’t work.

But with his ratings tanking as a result of his mismanagement of the pandemic and the worsening economic crisis, the stable genius resumed his traveling shit show. Since August he has held more than a dozen rallies in swing states.

Trump could care less if his supporters meet the same fate as Herman Cain, optics are more important than the safety and health of his followers.

Almost all of Trump’s recent rallies have been held at airport tarmacs, he can fly in and out quickly, and avoid mingling with the evangelical fanatics, rednecks and assorted riff-raff. Trump doesn’t mind the wild applause of his supporters, but the infamous germaphobe wants to escape from their presence as soon as he can.

Trump treats his loyal supporters as props and pawns, and his critics like enemies of the state that he needs to demonize and neutralize.

Let’s put a merciful end to these MAGA sideshows, and kick Trump to the curb November 3, 2020.

Trump Went ‘Shi*house Crazy’ When First Step Act Failed to Improve Polling With Black Voters

“President Donald Trump reportedly ‘went s—house crazy’ after a criminal-justice policy he implemented failed to improve his polling numbers among Black voters.

Why the hell did I do that?’ Trump yelled at his senior aides, current and former administration officials told The Washington Post.

The legislation in question, called the First Step Act, aimed to tackle major racial disparities in the prison system that disproportionately affect Black people as a result of decades-long mass incarceration.”

President Donald Trump views all of his words and actions through the prism of how they will improve his reelection chances. Trump doesn’t care about blacks, gays and lesbians, immigrants or any other minority, he doesn’t even care about the Republican Party, he cares only about himself.

Trump is a blatant racist and he could care less about the issues of mass incarceration and racial disparities in the prison system, but he supported the First Step Act because he expected his action to improve his anemic support in the African American community.

After the implementation of the First Step Act failed to improve his polling number among black voters, he went shithouse crazy, yelling at his aides, “Why the hell did I do that”.

The First Step Act actually worked, since the bill passed in 2018, about 4,700 incarcerated people have been released or had their prison sentences reduced. But Trump judges his policies success or failure solely on how they benefit his reelection prospects.

In the 2016 election Trump received only about 8% of the black vote, and that figure remains largely unchanged despite his transparent attempts to curry favor with them by throwing crumbs at them. Uncle Toms the likes of Sen. Tim Scott and Dr. Ben Carson will always be a fringe element in the African American population.

The American public, including blacks, aren’t stupid, we haven’t forgotten Trump’s abysmal racist behavior: Charlottesville, the frequent attacks on black political leaders, his refusal to attend Rep. John Lewis’ funeral, and his condemnation of the Black Lives Matter protests.

We will remember Trump’s racism on November 3, 2020.

Twitter Hashtag ‘She’s 12’ a Reference to Trump? Biden?

“My daughter’s name is Klaire, she’s 12. She hates her first name and wants it to be ‘Ace’. She wants it legally changed. Both her mother and I are against that.

I hate it. I said it’d be ok as a nickname but she’s not okay with that.

What do I do?”

Jason Ernst Tweet

When I want to know what people are talking about, I check out what’s trending on Twitter. When I woke up to see “She’s 12” trending I automatically thought, “is Trump’s latest sexual assault victim only 12?” After all the predator-in-chief has been making disturbing comments about young girls for years. In a 1992 recording, a 46-year old Trump asks a little girl if she’s going to go up an escalator. Then the short-fingered vulgarian turns to the camera and says, “I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?” A rhetorical question, nobody doubts that he would date a much younger woman. In 2016 a woman filed a civil suit against Trump alleging he raped her when she was only 13. So yes, I thought that the serial sexual predator had assaulted or molested a 12-year-old girl. Can you blame me?

The second thought that came to my mind was: Did creepy Joe Biden revert to his pre-pandemic penchant of groping underage girls? Social distancing rules help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and they have the added benefit of keeping Biden from getting to touchy-feely with prepubescent girls. Don’t believe me, search “creepy Joe Biden” on YouTube and you will find dozens of videos that chronicle Biden’s inappropriate behavior with little girls.

Actually, the hashtag is in reference to a father whose 12-year-old daughter wants to change her name from “Klaire” to “Ace.” I just hope and pray that sexual predators will stay the hell away from Klaire/Ace.

We live in a society that sexualizes young girls, and Trump and Biden aren’t the only ones who take an unhealthy interest in young girls. Twelve isn’t the new 18, and anyone who molests young children should be locked up for a very long time, hopefully forever.

Satan Smiles on Trump’s MAGA Rallies

President Donald Trump’s MAGA rallies haven’t changed since 2015, four years of serving as commander-in-chief and Leader of the Free World hasn’t tempered his rhetoric, curbed his vindictiveness, or eradicated his racism.

A 2020 MAGA rally is almost indistinguishable from a 2015 rally, you still hear chants of “Lock Her Up!” and “Build the Wall”, and an atmosphere of racism and intolerance still looms over the congregation of true believers.

Trump is like a country evangelist with a grade school education, who shuns study and preparation and depends on the Holy Ghost to speak through him to compel sinners to come to Jesus.

Trump doesn’t prepare for his stump speeches and he doesn’t know the Holy Ghost from Casper the Friendly Ghost.  The former reality TV show host relies on his ego to energize and weaponize his supporters.

If an evangelist is exposed as a phony with a predilection for hookers and cocaine, all he has to do is put on a show of repentance and most of his followers will forgive him.

Trump has already been exposed as a phony many times over and he’s never repented or apologized, and he hasn’t lost any of his followers.

There will be no reset, epiphany or moment when Trump becomes presidential, he is who he is: an ignorant and vindictive racist. Indeed, Trump’s ignorance and racism are the reasons why he is so beloved by his white evangelical supporters.

It’s useless praying to the Almighty to smite this evildoer and his reprehensible white evangelical supporters. It won’t be an exorcist but millions of patriots and decent citizens who vote who will banish this demon to hell.

Trump Recalls ‘Beautiful’ Moment MSNBC Anchor Ali Velshi Was Hit by Rubber Bullet

“I remember this guy Velshi. He got hit in the knee with a canister of tear gas, and he went down. He was down. ‘My knee. My knee.’ Nobody cared. These guys didn’t care. They moved him aside.

And they just walked right through. It was the most beautiful thing. After we take all that crap for weeks and weeks, and you finally see men get up there and go right through them, wasn’t it really a beautiful sight? It’s called law and order.”

Donald Trump temperate and oh so presidential remarks at a Minnesota MAGA rally.

So, @realDonaldTrump, you call my getting hit by authorities in Minneapolis on 5/30/20 (by a rubber bullet, btw, not a tear gas cannister) a ‘beautiful thing’ called ‘law and order’. What law did I break while covering an entirely peaceful (yes, entirely peaceful) march?”

Ali Velshi’s response

Velshi was not agitating or protesting, as a correspondent for MSNBC he was in Minneapolis covering a peaceful protest in the aftermath of George Floyd’s lynching by the Minneapolis police.

The only violence was perpetrated by the police who fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the peaceful demonstrators. Velshi was hit on the knee by a rubber bullet, and the cameras captured him writhing in agony.

Only a petty person would gloat when a rioter or an arsonist is hit by a rubber bullet, and only a heartless monster would gloat when a reporter just doing his job has the misfortune of being hit by a rubber bullet.

Trump’s despicable remarks were met with applause and laughter by his MAGA crowd of predominantly white evangelical Christians. Is anyone surprised that white evangelicals are so bloodthirsty and vengeful?

When cops fire tear gas cannisters and rubber bullets at peaceful demonstrators that’s not an example of maintaining law and order, it’s an example of police arrogance and contempt for the people they have sworn to protect and serve, that led to the murder of George Floyd.

Trump and his followers are a threat to freedom of speech, law and order and democracy itself. It’s time to kick Trump to the curb.

Jerry Falwell Jr’s Drunken Fall Perfectly Illustrates His Spiritual Fall From Grace

Jerry Falwell Jr’s sexual hijinks have garnered much of the attention in his epic fall from grace. It’s not surprising the press would focus their attention on the infamous Instagram pic of the Liberty University (LU) president on a yacht with his pants unzipped embracing a beautiful young woman whose pants are similarly unzipped.  It wasn’t just the tabloids but the mainstream media as well that gave saturation coverage to the scintillating tale of the young pool boy who slept with Falwell’s spouse in a hotel room, while Falwell sat ogling in the corner. A pool boy, a cuckold evangelical leader, and his promiscuous wife, impossible to ignore.

But Falwell’s interesting sexual life may have been the least of his sins. Falwell was rewarded with a $10 million severance package, after years of using LU as a cash cow. He even had the audacity to put his two sons and their wives on the payroll.

Liberty tells all of its students that sex should only be between a man and his wife, and that sobriety should be practiced. A student will be disciplined for a single innocent kiss or having one beer at a party.

According to The Wall Street Journal, administrators say Falwell showed up to campus drunk. The lecherous university president once sent a racy photograph of his wife to administrators, and to his own son, they claimed. I’m not surprised Falwell would send a naked pic of his wife to school administrators, for they were aware of and complicit in his unbiblical behavior. But he must have been drunk as a skunk to send a racy pic of his wife to his son.

A few days after resigning as Liberty University’s president, Falwell was injured after falling down the stairs after drinking, according to a 911 call. Becki admitted to the dispatcher that Falwell had been drinking, and the first responders noted that there were several empty liquor bottles in the vicinity of his fall.

This physical fall perfectly illustrates Falwell’s fall from grace, it was decades of financial irregularities, sexual escapades and drunkenness that culminated with Falwell helpless at the bottom of the stairs bleeding and, crying out for help.
