Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo: ‘We Will Continue To Fight… Until The Rapture’

Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo: ‘We Will Continue To Fight… Until The Rapture’

The fact is, Pompeo has a well deserved reputation as a dangerous Christian extremist. Indeed, Pompeo has even gone so far as to endorse the notion of a “Holy War” between Christians and Muslims, and believes the fight against terrorism is a war between Islam and Christianity.

Speaking at a church group in Wichita, Kansas, in 2014, Pompeo claimed that Christianity was the “only solution” to combat terrorism, arguing that the greatest “threat to America” is caused by “people who deeply believe that Islam is the way.”

Pompeo continued:

They (Muslims) abhor Christians, and will continue to press against us until we make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world.

That’s right, the Secretary of State, America’s top diplomat, believes that “Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world.”

Bottom line: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is a dangerous Christian extremist. His Holy War mentality is alarming, and his open contempt for LGBT people is deplorable. Finally, any man who believes in the Rapture and claims that “Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world” is simply not fit to serve in any significant foreign policy capacity.

Tennessee Lawyer Threatens County Clerks Who Issue Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Gender, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion, Sex — Scottie @ 07:38

Here is another Christian saving the country, the world, and everyone’s souls by being as hateful as possible to his preferred victims.   What a way to spread the love of the lord?   When will these asshole learn that freedom of religion is also freedom from their religion.   They have every right to their thoughts and to practice their faith, they do not have the right to push it on to anyone else nor oppress those they don’t like.  I am sick of these people.   Hugs

Tennessee Lawyer Threatens County Clerks Who Issue Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

This week, every single one of the 95 county clerks in the State of Tennessee received threatening letters accusing them of breaking the law and violating civil rights… all for doing their jobs by issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

 

As general legal counsel for the Constitutional Government Defense Fund, an initiative run by Family Action Council of Tennessee (FACT), he was involved in the state’s earliest challenges the Obergefell ruling. Currently, he’s also partnering with Tennessee Independent Baptists for Religious Liberty (TIBRL) as they file a legal challenge against the Tennessee Department of Health, claiming ministers’ conscience rights are being violated when the government requires them to sign marriage certificates that “define marriage without regard to the sex of the two parties.”

 

The Department’s Certificate is inextricably tied to the marriage license issued by County Clerks that, according to Tenn. Code Ann. 36-3-103(a), is the legal document that actually authorizes my clients to solemnize the marriages they conduct by ceremony… However, the issuance of licenses by county clerks to persons other than a “male and female contracting party” as stated in Tenn. Code Ann. 36-3-103(a)(1) presents my clients with a grave civil rights issue of conscience under the Tennessee [Constitution], Article I, section 3, as well as a grave civil rights issue under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution regarding the free exercise of religion and government-compelled speech.

 

In conversation with noted LGBTQ news outlet The Washington Blade, Fowler described his intentions:

The purpose of the letter was simply that which was stated, to call to the attention of our county clerks the constitutional fact that the provisions in our state constitution applicable to marriage licenses have not been enjoined by a court or repealed by vote of the people, meaning they have not been excused from complying with it and, because they are purely administrative officials, they have no judicial authority to interpret the U.S. Constitution or the Tennessee Constitution, or to interpret licensing statutes in light of the language in the two Constitutions and the Obergefell ruling. They are not judges.

Neither are all of us, but we have to follow the law, too.

In any case, Fowler is just admitting that he wants to make county clerks nervous that they might be falling afoul of the law if they continue to do their jobs as they’ve been instructed.

 

According to Chris Sanders, president of the Tennessee Equality Project, Fowler’s letters amount to little more than a bad-faith attempt to undermine settled law:

We are well aware that some continue to look for ways to deny and ignore the plain meaning of the Obergefell ruling and the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Marriage equality is equal protection of the laws, and it is the law of the land.

It’s hard to avoid the impression that Fowler is playing with emotional manipulation here. He’s sent county clerks hefty packets with an important-looking letter full of hard-to-parse jargon, backed up by no less than five enclosures packed with legalese, and he’s playing on understandable fears of repercussions in the hope that maybe, somewhere in Tennessee, some LGBTQ couple will have a harder time getting a marriage license because of him.

War Hawk John Bolton Thrilled With US Airstrike

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Fascism, History, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 13:44

Notice the hope for regime change!  I keep saying these people simply want to get rid of the Islamic government at all costs.   Bolton has made his total support of Israel well known, and part of his attacks on Iran are in the name of Israel.   These people do not care who suffers for their dream of taking over Iran, forcing the people to have the government they want.  Think of it from the point of Iran.  The people attacking them want their way of life, their religion gone.   The people attacking them want control over their country.    Then remember what people do in countries where such things have happened.  Anyone remember the American revolution?   A world power tried to enforce its will on a much smaller nation state.   The US fought back.   We won.   History will not look kindly on what our government has done today.    Hugs

War Hawk John Bolton Thrilled With US Airstrike

Mediaite reports:

Former National Security Advisor John Bolton offered congratulations for the U.S. airstrike that killed Qasem Soleimani, one of Iran’s top military commanders, and expressed his hope for regime change in the country. Bolton, known as one of the more relentlessly hawkish foreign policy minds in the United States, served as Trump’s national security adviser until he left in September over policy clashes (Trump said he was fired, Bolton said he quit.)

Republican Josh Hawley ripped as a ‘bootlicking hack’ for move to block Trump’s impeachment trial

One Republican Senator is attempting a parliamentary maneuver to block the United States Senate from ever holding an impeachment trial for President Donald Trump.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), who was a state attorney general and led the Federalist Society at Yale Law School prior to his election to the Senate, announced he would be introducing a motion to change Senate rules dismiss all of the charges against Trump.

Trump’s Mar-A-Lago Winter Vacation Pushes Taxpayer Golf Tab Above $118 million

We are paying for this in more ways than just money.   Hugs

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trumps-mar-a-lago-winter-vacation-pushes-taxpayer-golf-tab-above-dollar118-million/ar-BBYeacU?ocid=sf

President Donald Trump has pushed his taxpayer-funded golf tab past $118 million on his 26th visit to Mar-a-Lago, his for-profit resort in Palm Beach, Florida, with a Saturday visit to his course in neighboring West Palm Beach.

The new total is the equivalent of 296 years of the $400,000 presidential salary that his supporters often boast that he is not taking.

And of that $118.3 million, at least several million has gone into Trump’s own cash registers, as Secret Service agents, White House staff and other administration officials stay and eat at his hotels and golf courses.

Trump’s costs are so much higher than Obama’s because Trump insists on playing golf at his own courses — primarily in Bedminster, New Jersey, and Florida — during which he greets and spends time with paying club members whose dues continue to enrich him. Each trip to Bedminster costs taxpayers about $1.1 million, while each Mar-a-Lago trip costs about $3.4 million. Trump has also visited his courses in Los Angeles; Doral, Florida; Turnberry, Scotland; and Doonbeg, Ireland — all on the taxpayer dime.

Trump’s trip to Turnberry in 2018 cost taxpayers an extra $3 million beyond what it would have cost had he remained in London prior to his summit in Helsinki with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. His trip to Ireland this summer cost taxpayers $3.6 million more than if he’d simply returned to Washington following his visit to London and Normandy, France.

I wonder how much of a bribe kick back he got for this. Hope it can be canceled

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Criminal, Greed, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 07:02

Wow. Two hundred jobs and only $41 million to spend for them. As noted above, too bad Bevin blew off the legislative committee responsible for approving this type of contract. And at least one of the members of that committe is not happy with Bevin’s move.

 

So the same company that let women inmates be raped by the guards and created conditions for a prison riot is back in the black again with the state of Kentucky.

Governor Beshear is looking at this latest “Fuck You!” by Bevin, and he is being urged to cancel the contract.

Lindsey Graham Won’t “Pretend To Be A Fair Juror”

Senate rules require members to take a specific oath before an impeachment trial gets underway: “I solemnly swear (or affirm) that in all things appertaining to the trial of ____, now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help me God.”

This hurts to report, so I will post the links and and the titles.

‘No justification:’ North Carolina sheriff’s deputy fired after caught on video body-slamming child

https://abcnews.go.com/US/justification-north-carolina-sheriffs-deputy-fired-caught-video/story?id=67754371

A sheriff’s deputy caught on security video twice body-slamming a child under the age of 12 at a North Carolina middle school was fired on Monday morning and state investigators are deciding whether to file criminal charges against him, officials said.

In the school surveillance video, the deputy, a school resource officer, is seen walking with the child down a hallway when suddenly he lunges at the boy, lifts him off the ground and slams him to the floor on his back. Without checking the child for injuries, the deputy picks the student up again and throws him to the floor a second time and drags him down the hall and out of the view of the camera, according to the footage.

Sorry I was not going to post this, I simply did not want to see it nor deal with it.  But having seen it , I can not forget or get it out of my mind.  The vortex is howling at my right ear, I have chills up my back , my muscles are clenched, I am struggling.   I once was that child thrown around by a bigger adult I had no chance of protecting my self from.  He could lash out at any moment and how does a 50 pound kid take on a 250 pound brawler.  I need to go.  Hugs

Ohio Lawmaker Admits Doing No Research on Insane Ectopic Pregnancy Bill

Ohio Lawmaker Admits Doing No Research on Insane Ectopic Pregnancy Bill

Re-implanting an ectopic pregnancy, of course, isn’t a thing that doctors do. An ectopic pregnancy isn’t viable. It’s deadly. Anyone who bothered to research the subject would’ve known that, but Republicans didn’t research this because it was never about doing what’s best for women. It was about punishing them for having sex. As usual.

And now we know about their ignorance because one of those sponsors is freely admitting it.

State Rep. John Becker (above) told the Cincinnati Enquirer this week that he didn’t bother asking doctors for their input when voicing his support for the anti-abortion measure.

Becker told the newspaper he never researched whether re-implanting an ectopic pregnancy into a woman’s uterus was a viable medical procedure before including it in the bill…

“I heard about it over the years,” Becker said. “I never questioned it or gave it a lot of thought.”

No questioning. No thought. It’s Christianity and conservatism in a nutshell.

He wants a retraction of a 100-year-old medical journal article.

These people aren’t politicians trying to make the state a better place. They’re religious zealots who care more about pleasing Jesus than helping citizens. It’s political malpractice and anti-abortion cruelty, all rolled up into one, all meant to hurt women in Ohio.

GOP Congressional Candidate from TN Has a History of Racist, Anti-Muslim Posts

GOP Congressional Candidate from TN Has a History of Racist, Anti-Muslim Posts

According to The TN Holler, Meyer is a notorious racist and anti-Muslim activist who wants to see another Civil War.

His Facebook feed is full of bigoted statements, referring to Muslims as “sandbox turds” and reposting a comment about how mosques should be shut down. He believes school teachers are “secret agents” for Islam. He and his wife also homeschool their children so they won’t be brainwashed by the public school system (the irony).

He’s also guilty of posting memes that depict lynchings, memes making fun of indigenous people, supports neo-fascists, and believes there’s an impending Holocaust against white men.

And that’s just the beginning.

On his website’s “Why I’m running” page, he offers these compelling reasons:

Congress is broken. On the one side, The Democrats have become so aggressively and shamelessly anti-American that one can’t often tell them apart from Revolutionary Communists, and, increasingly, even terrorists. Worse yet, The Republicans are timid, directionless, weak and irresolute, and, therefore, in no moral position to counter The Left’s destructive foolishness. Career politicians on both sides have betrayed The Public Trust, and Institutionalized Corruption has destroyed Congress’ capacity for effective functional administration and oversight of Our Government. With scant few determined patriots in a position to protect her, Our Great Nation is being very intentionally and systematically injected with the poisonous doctrines and subversive agendas of weaponized political movements such as Liberalism, Globalism, Communism, and Islamic Jihad. But I believe that Our Republic is worth saving, that she is worth fighting for. Our hallowed dead demand that we stand in this the time of her greatest peril, and take Our Country back. It is time for a political revolution.
