Ten Ways God is Working Through the Coronavirus — Great points!


Brutal!  But they should have added that the brand of ice cream she has crammed in her expensive fridge costs $64 per gallon.  Oh, and she was getting paid while doing no work!


CNN avoids on-air coverage of Biden accuser Tara Reade nearly one month after making assault claim — “Journalism.”


Hoo boy: 60% of Dems say Trump is more to blame for the crisis than China is — That is sad how deceived these people are.  Even if they hate Trump the facts couldn’t be more clear that China is the root cause of the virus and the cover-up.


Lockdown’s Disastrous Effect on Healthcare — Such an unfortunate overreaction.  They should have fixed this weeks ago.


Facebook deleting posts promoting anti-lockdown protests if they violate local government orders — No surprise, just another reminder to never trust Big Tech.


Stephen C. Meyer lectures on intelligent design and the origin of life — Great overview!


Democrats are ‘grappling’ with Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden (many in silence) — It doesn’t sound like grappling to me.  Sounds like they have decided to ignore the obvious because of politics.  If they really thought she wasn’t credible they would just say so.  By their silence they are admitting that they think he’s guilty.  I think they’ll ultimately have to replace Biden, but this incident shows how the media and the DNC are complete frauds.

This is how messed up these people are.  She’s an “advocate” ignoring that the new President would be a predator so she can help the predator fight sexual violence.

“For me, this is extremely painful,” said an advocate who had worked with Biden’s office on sexual violence issues during the Obama administration. She asked to remain anonymous because she worries that expressing support for further investigation into Reade’s claims could jeopardize her chance of working with the White House if Biden wins. “I really saw Biden as a champion for a really long time,” she said. “I’m experiencing cognitive dissonance right now. I haven’t had the ability or the time to process emotionally what it means for me to believe that he did this.”…

I find Reade infinitely more believable than Kavanaugh’s accuser.  But the media and Democrats just put reporting on hold for a couple weeks while they could figure out how to bury this.


Lady Gaga calls WHO chief ‘superstar,’ praises media — as Trump looks to defund agency — Of course she does.  What an idiot.


Is the Church in the Hands of Anti-Christ Digital Media Giants? — Great analysis.

Study: Majority Of Homeschoolers Arrive At College Woefully Unprepared For Gender Studies | The Babylon Bee


We’re gonna need a lot of millstones to clean this up . . .

Gretchen Whitmer Calls Abortion “Life-Sustaining” — Lucky for her that her mom didn’t hold that view.  That’s typical Molech-worshiping ghoul-speak. If they aren’t killing children they aren’t happy. “We need PPE to fight the virus!! Oh, and to kill children!! Everyone else can just suck it up.”  I know a 77 yr. old who needs his colon re-attached after cancer surgery, but he has to wait so Whitmer can make sure more children are destroyed.


Disney’s DuckTales Promotes Gay Agenda — Predictable, but sickening.

Free trade only works where there is trust

All other things being equal, free trade is ultimately phenomenal for countries and individuals.  Using money as a medium of exchange, I trade my finance/accounting/leadership skills and experience with people who are good at making groceries, building cars, giving dance lessons, etc.  Win-win.

But the key part is about things being equal.  When one party – let’s say, China – has the system rigged in their favor by world trade organizations, is manifestly corrupt and evil, steals from you, spies on you, lies to you about pandemics, abuses their citizens, has no free speech, etc., then things are obviously not equal.  It would be foolish to continue to buy, say, 95% of your antibiotics from them.  Keep in mind that they are so evil that NBA players, coaches and leaders will criticize Trump 24×7 but punish anyone daring to offer the mildest criticism to China.

So this was good to read: Coronavirus pressures US manufacturers to bring plants home from China:

The COVID-19 pandemic has America rethinking its reliance on China for not only key medical supplies but production capacity in general after Beijing clamped down on exports of critical items used to combat the disease. . . .

“One of the things that has happened with this pandemic is it’s revealed to everybody the limits to our digital superiority and our software and all the things that we’ve innovated in technology,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo. “You still have to be able to make things. You still have to have industry and industrial capacity as a country. And we’ve given a lot of it away.”

Indeed, only about 11 percent of U.S. gross domestic product comes from manufacturing today, down from almost 40 percent in 1945. . . .

Although cheaper Chinese labor remains a factor in companies’ decisions to make their products in that country, it’s not the advantage it once was, Freeman said. Instead, China lures companies with tax breaks and other incentives, as well as the appeal of its domestic market.

That’s one of the many reasons that Trump’s tax cuts were so important.  When countries have lower taxes that often swings  financial decisions.  Back in the 90’s Compaq sent tons of business to Singapore because their tax rate was zero while the U.S. rate was 35%.  That meant that even if you got free labor, buildings, machines, etc. it would still be more profitable to build in Singapore than the U.S.  Our corporate tax rate doesn’t need to be zero, but keeping it lower will remain important if we want jobs back.

President Trump has repeatedly called on U.S. companies to bring their operations back home, moves that would likely provide a spark to a labor force that has over the past four weeks seen 22 million workers lose their jobs, at least temporarily.

That’s one more reason the Left will fight the obvious.  Although temporarily the Democrats realized they need to have their Joe Biden Talking Doll (TM) pretend to be harder on China than Trump has been.  Of all their lies, that is a grand one.  Anyone paying attention knows how hard he has been on them long before Covid-19 and how Biden has been in bed them for a long time.

He believes the COVID-19 experience will cause many companies to “rethink the safety and security of reliance on global markets,” and that there will inevitably be some movement of capital-intensive — not labor intensive — production back to the U.S. . . .

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce “supports a robust commercial relationship with China,” he added, but also understands the “need for some rethinking of that relationship.

I quit trusting the Chamber of Commerce years ago.  Those “Republicans” are the ones who brought us ridiculous levels of illegal immigration.  The Dems get the votes and these country club Republicans got cheap labor.

Rubio agrees. He told Bartiromo that the current level of U.S. dependence on China’s industrial capacity has put our country “in a very dangerous situation.”

“I hope that one of the things that will come about now is a broad consensus in this country that we have to be able to make things in the United States,” he said.

The same goes for oil and gas.  Fracking and such has been one of the greatest wins in our history, as it has provided jobs and reduced dependence on foreign oil.  Guess which side fights that 24×7?

I’d gladly pay more for clothes and such knowing that it created jobs in the U.S.  I hope we do bring a lot back from China.

UPS Trains 97,000 Delivery Drivers to Spot Signs of Human Trafficking — Good for them!


Dallas Starts Emptying Jails Because Wuhan Virus — Yeah, that definitely won’t motivate more people to go on crime sprees now that the consequences  have been removed.  /sarcasm

A man released from a Florida jail to help prevent the spread of coronavirus murdered someone the next day — Very sad.  If only countless conservatives would have warned them.


I love how Justin Peters pulls no punches.  “I believe he [Kenneth Copeland] is demon-possessed.”  Yep.  Lots more of these frauds exposed in the video.


Trump: If the Senate won’t convene and vote on my nominees, I’ll adjourn Congress and make recess appointments — Yea!


AOC says Biden assault claim ‘legitimate to talk about’ — Good for her.  It is so obvious how the DNC and the media took a two week break to figure out how to flush this down the memory hole.  Hopefully people will keep bringing up their wicked hypocrisy.


Quarantine Craziness — Why we should end the lockdown now.

1. We have already flattened the curve

2. Economic collapse and unemployment are destroying families

3. We have not saturated the health care system

4. Suicide may kill almost as many people as COVID-19 this year

5. The mortality was likely overestimated

6. Children are at almost no risk from this disease

7. PPE was limited but is now becoming more available

8. Authorities should show clear evidence regarding the benefits of indefinite lockdown


Brace for meltdown: Donald Trump announces halt on WHO funding pending probe of their ‘role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus’ — Yes!  That’s leadership.  Only fools would want to give them $500 million for their biased incompetence.  This is also a great issue to appeal to middle ground people.  You have to be suffering from TDS to criticize not giving that much money to a corrupt organization.

Transwomen Rape Female Prison Officers — That is, men posing as women rape women.  Brought to you by the Left — including the “Christian” Left.


NY Times Admits to Changing Sexual Assault Story at Request of Biden Campaign — I’m definitely not surprised that they did it, but I’m slightly surprised that they admitted it.


Hmm, Children are Thriving Being Home With Their Mothers — I hope this is one of the long-lasting things from the virus.  Kids need to spend more time with parents.  These results may be anecdotal at this stage but I think a lot of parents will be motivated to make changes when they see how much being at home reduces kids’ anxiety.


Wuhan Coronavirus Fat Shames — I’ve seen more news on the virus than I’ve wanted to, yet haven’t seen mentions about the high lifestyle-related comorbidities.

You don’t catch diabetes from a handshake. To acknowledge personal lifestyle choices and cultural differences is the ultimate blasphemy of progressive doctrine. Imagine if, instead of spending millions of the rapidly-depleting state budget on a ‘COVID-19 racial disparity task force’, as kooky Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer announced this week, she frankly told the public it all comes down to personal lifestyle choices — eat well and exercise and you’ll probably survive the next one.


As reports of blatant racism against black people surface in China, we eagerly await a response from the NBA — They’ll ignore this because they care about money more than racism.


Virus-Panicked Liberal Gun Buyers Are Getting Angry When They Discover Their Own Gun Control Laws — Great story, and not just for the irony. This could be one of those profound long-term impacts that will come from this pandemic: A fairly significant amount of people rethinking their views on guns – and perhaps more!  Hopefully lots of people are re-thinking their stereotypes about guns, gun owners and gun laws.  This should be a great campaign issue for Republicans.

More than a dozen of these buyers (men and women) actually thought that since they filled out and signed everything, they could just walk out and go home with the firearm. Several actually said they saw how easy it was to buy a gun on TV and why did they have to fill out all these forms. The majority of these first timers lost their minds when we went through the Ammo Law requirements. Most used language not normally heard, even in a gun range. We pointed out that since no one working here voted for these laws, then maybe they might know someone who did. And, maybe they should go back and talk to those people and tell them to re-think their position on firearms – we were trying to be nice.

We tried to look at just who the new firearm purchasers were and we believe that more than 60% of these individuals were first time buyers. I can’t describe the amount of fear in my staff as we had the buyers show proof of safe handling as part of the purchase process as required by law. You have never seen so many barrels pointed at sales staff and other customers. It was truly frightening. We had to keep stopping the process to give quick safety lessons. We are adding many more basic classes in the coming weeks and encouraged these buyers to please attend. We hope they do.


Students demand fee reduction after university goes online over coronavirus — This is great!  I heard there are even lawsuits out there over this.  Hopefully the students will realize that with the massive endowments these universities have  they could easily provide refunds, but the schools are only commies with other people’s money.  The schools didn’t really care about them.

But here’s the best part: If the schools argue that online classes provide the same experience, then why go to the campuses at all and waste all that money?  Just learn from home!  Then you can avoid all their politically correct nonsense and rules and just learn.


No One Organizes A Mob — Great points. Technology is accelerating how quickly people will give up freedoms, health and money out of fear.

SAT To Be Replaced With DNA Test To Determine How Oppressed You Are | The Babylon Bee


What is ballot harvesting?  I can’t believe we’re even talking about this.  Pure fraud.  Anyone pushing it is full of malice.

Ballot harvesting, or the practice of allowing political operatives and others to collect voters’ ballots and turn them in en masse to polling stations, has drawn bipartisan concerns of fraud from election watchers

Fauci on US after coronavirus: No shaking hands ‘ever again’ — Somewhere Mrs. Eternity Matters is smiling, as she’s wanted to get rid of this custom for a long time.  My vote is for putting your hands behind your back (so you don’t psych people out thinking you’re going to shake hands) then giving a small bow, a la the Japanese (though their bowing system can get pretty elaborate, so let’s not go there).  And smile, of course.  This will be a hard transition, as it will be hard for businesses to risk offending customers by not shaking their hands.  But this is our time!

Oh, and the Leftists will find a way to oppose this.  Why?  Because they’ll have to admit that Trump was right all along!  Watch and enjoy.


So Biden opposed Trump’s China travel ban and the Europe ban, both of which saved lives.  The media will  memory-hole it and try to blame Trump, but he can use this to hammer Biden for the next 7 months.


“Journalism.”  Someone got their hand slapped for that first one where they told the truth.


Tara Reade remains persona non grata in the media – But but but believe all women!!  Or something.  Hopefully this doesn’t go away.  She’s infinitely more credible than Blasey-Ford was (even Ford’s friend questioned whether she had even met Kavanaugh!).  Trump can use it to expose the media’s hypocrisy and bias.


Harris poll shows broad bipartisan consensus on China’s lying about COVID-19 — so why does media use their data? — That’s good news!  So only the media and the DNC and the commies trust China.


Personality Tests & the Christian Part 3: Examining Our Motives – Redeeming Productivity — An interesting 3 part series.  I always thought the Myers-Briggs analysis had some useful insights — e.g., knowing if someone is detailed or more big picture is very helpful with communications.  But I agree that these things aren’t helpful if used for excuses for selfishness or the like.


Senators Oppose Appointment of China to UN Human Rights Panel — This is a great time to abandon the UN, WHO and any other organizations who are self-parodies as well as haters of America.  Oh, and defund the killers at Planned Parenthood.  Those actions would save well over $1,000,000,000 that we don’t have to borrow from our children.


FCC Chairman to Chinese spokesperson: Can I speak to this long list of “disappeared” coronavirus whistleblowers? — This was savage, and yet beautiful.  One Tweet after another demolishing the Chinese spokesperson’s ridiculous claim that they allow free speech.


I’ve been really enjoying these Bible Project videos that give overviews of each book of the Bible.  The videos on some of the lesser known books help the most, such as those on the minor prophets.


SCOTUS, here we come: Fifth Circuit reinstates Texas order making abortion “non-essential” in pandemic — No matter how bad things get, the Left’s #1 priority is being able to kill their children up to their first breath and to make you pay for it.  Have I ever mentioned that they are Molech-worshiping ghouls?

Repeat Pedophile Released Because Coronavirus

Roundup

The Atlantic analyst to media, critics: Coronavirus pandemic has proven Trump right about China and multilateral orgs  — I’m not naive enough to think that the deranged Left will let up on their Trump-hatred, even if it meant the country being destroyed.  But is it possible that more middle ground people are seeing that Trump was right about China all along?  And we haven’t even gotten to the border protection discussion.  What fool would oppose border controls now?!

Don’t forget that China was proclaiming that they had the outbreak under control at the same time it was hoarding PPE, and offered false data that no doubt kept prices for these goods relatively low for a few weeks


Globa Health Security Index — Imagine that, in late 2019 the U.S. was ranked as the top country in the world with respect to dealing with a pandemic.  Has the media mentioned this?  Have the Democrats acknowledged it?  Trump doesn’t get all the credit, as much of this was obviously in place before his tenure.  But it does show how ridiculous it is to blame him for the U.S. not being prepared for this.  And note that it wasn’t some conservative think-tank that come up with this:

To create the GHS Index, NTI, JHU, and the EIU project team—with generous grants from the Open Philanthropy Project, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Robertson Foundation—worked with an international advisory panel of 21 experts from 13 countries to create a detailed and comprehensive framework of 140 questions, organized across 6 categories, 34 indicators, and 85 subindicators to assess a country’s capability to prevent and mitigate epidemics and pandemics.


Enjoy this 1.5 minute segment.  It is one of the many reasons I like Trump and loathe the media and the Democratic party.  They like this pandemic and they choreographed Biden’s fact-free Tweet and the reporter’s question because they savor the opportunity to harm Trump.  But he calls it what it is, uses it to point out what everyone really knows (that Biden is lost and confused and just lamely trying to read what the Dems script for him) and reminds them that even Biden had to admit that Trump was right about canceling flights from China.


The Economist calls it ‘striking’ that the media has greeted with silence the latest #MeToo claim against Joe Biden — Striking . . . and predictable.  Such hypocrites.  They are not only doing the opposite of their “believe all women!!” mantra, but they aren’t even acknowledging it at all.  It shows they haven’t changed a bit since the Bill Clinton years — even though they recently pretended that they should have reacted differently then.

Trump noted that when you are wildly popular women may let you grab them by the pu$$y and the Left lost their minds (it is obviously consensual if they let you do it).

But Biden has been credibly accused of literally grabbing Reade’s pu$$y against her will and the Left is silent.

Bonus “pass the popcorn” link – Tweet from Rose McGowan (oddball Leftist, to be sure, but at least she has standing as a real victim) against Alyssa Milano’s hypocrisy about Biden:

You are a fraud. This is about holding the media accountable. You go after Trump & Kavanaugh saying Believe Victims, you are a lie. You have always been a lie. The corrupt DNC is in on the smear job of Tara Reade, so are you. SHAME


Coronavirus pushes NBA to propose 50% player pay cuts — China has cost the major sports teams and players billions.  I guarantee that the value of franchises will go down permanently.  Who would take the risk for something like this happening again?

Remember when Daryl Morey of the Houston Rockets made some benign comments supporting Hong Kong and the NBA and its players eviscerated him because they didn’t want to lose any China money?  Yeah, good times.  Now that China has cost the owners and players billions I wonder if they’ll reconsider whether they should have bowed down to an evil Communist government that literally kills dissenters, lies about deadly diseases and deflects blame 24×7.

This Mom Went Undercover on Instagram as an 11-Year-Old Girl to Show How Online Sex Abuse Happens — I can’t believe how little most parents monitor their kids’ online access.


Great points here.  The media “forgets” that the official crimes they were sentenced for were often plea-bargained down from something more serious and often violent.   I’ve done prison ministry for 13 years and have met countless felons. I’m still waiting to meet one who didn’t belong there.  The common denominator is almost always a broken home — brought to you by the Left’s policies.

And yes, the rich Leftists won’t be impacted by letting these felons out on the streets, but those they claim to care about will be hurt.

So many conservative principles being proved true!

As if you didn’t have enough evidence already, Conservatism is vastly superior to Leftism.  This pandemic made that painfully clear.

  1. We need to have guns.  The police in some cities quit responding to certain crimes and were setting prisoners free.  And if there would have been food shortages then things would have gotten even uglier.  One of the great bits of news I’ve seen is how some Leftists are getting mugged by reality when trying to buy a gun for themselves: Virus-Panicked Liberal Gun Buyers Are Getting Angry When They Discover Their Own Gun Control Laws.  Hopefully lots of people are re-thinking their stereotypes about guns, gun owners and gun laws – among other Leftist thoughts!  This should be a great campaign issue for Republicans.
  2. Borders count!  You already had to be malicious or ignorant to be for open borders, but now even Leftists have a tough time pushing for those with a straight face.
  3. Maybe people should spend less and tats, partying, clothes, iPhones, etc. and save some money for emergencies!
  4. A totalitarian Communist government caused the most expensive and deadly crisis in history and exacerbated it with their predictable lies and destruction of dissenters.  Capitalistic countries helped solve it.
  5. On balance, conservatives have been much more respectful towards professions like truckers and grocers.  Now the Left realizes you need them more than you do celebrities and sports stars (not that they should be paid the same . . . supply and demand still rules).  I hope that change lasts.
  6. Public schools are outdated and full of time-wasting activities and Leftist propaganda.  I was surprised at some of the people noting how little of their children’s days are spent actually learning in school.
  7. Now that we have real problems, micro-aggressions are being exposed for the nonsense that they are.  Hey, they even told us in the name that they are micro.  So why did anyone ever take them seriously?
  8. The free market solved the toilet paper situation quickly.  We should share that example often and remind people of how it works in Venezuela.
  9. Globalism is not a winning strategy.
  10. You need limited government.  It didn’t take long for governments to trample basic rights, fining people for things like parking their car by the beach while ignoring unsafe encounters at farmer’s markets and such.

To be continued . . .

And enjoy this list:

By the time the pandemic is over, everyone will be convinced that…

  1. Open borders are a menace.

  2. Globalization is a menace.

  3. Public transportation is a menace, while private cars keep families safe.

  4. Public schools are a menace.

  5. Homeschooling is great.

  6. Gun owners have fewer anxieties to deal with during a crisis.

  7. Hollywood is a bunch of nincompoops.

  8. The mainstream media is a useless menace.

  9. Communists can’t be trusted and are a menace.

  10. Capitalist enterprise reacts to emergencies faster and more efficiently, while the obstructionist bureaucracy is a menace.

  11. All essentials must be manufactured within our own borders.

  12. A businessman makes a better president than a career politician.

Inmates charged with violent crimes getting out on low bond — Brought to you by the Left.  A guy who stole from our company and many others has been arrested 8 times over the last 10 years, and was just released early when they lowered his bond.  Hopefully people remember this and vote these fools out of office.

Timothy Singleton, 21, also has prior convictions. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, after being accused of pulling a gun on his aunt’s neighbor. Singleton was granted a $500 bond, which means $50 would get him out of jail. Normally bond would be at least $20,000.

“Some of the cases I saw today, I almost fell off my chair in hysterical laughter,” said Andy Kahan, director of victim services and advocacy at Crime Stoppers of Houston. “Ten dollar bonds? One hundred dollar bonds? In some cases, violent felons are getting bonds I’ve never seen in my 30 years in the criminal justice system.”


How coronavirus took just weeks to overwhelm Spain — But the feminists just had to get out and celebrate International Womyn’s Day.  Typical selfish feminists took a break from killing their children and ended up killing those outside the womb.

The One Who Shows Mercy — Good for Hungary!  They really step up in unique ways for persecuted Christians.  You never hear the Left even acknowledge them.

When I attended Hungary’s 2nd International Conference on Christian Persecution in Budapest it was evident that Hungary is the only country with a government-sponsored, unapologetic initiative for persecuted Christians. Frankly, even uttering the word “Christian” instead of ever-present euphemisms “minorities” or “religious believers” is Hungary’s trademark. During the conference the Hungarian Government lit red the Chain Bridge spanning the Danube River to honor persecuted Christians.


Ever notice that throughout the crisis there was no talk of laying off any government employees?  Update from Stan: Apparently there are some being warned of layoffs.


Japanese VP: The WHO Should be Renamed the ‘Chinese Health Organization’ — Our media is trying to fool U.S. citizens, but it isn’t fooling anyone else around the world.

The WHO amplified this lie.

China disappeared doctors who tried to warn the world.

Yet our media still suggests it’s racist to talk about any of this.

China is the root cause of countless deaths and trillions of dollars in losses.  The Leftist notion that it is racist to point out their evils just piles insults on top of that.

 


‘Seems FISHY’: @Techno_Fog’s thread on wife who fed her husband fish tank cleaner blows TRUMP BAD story out of the water — Oops. the MSM forgot to tell you these things.  It got in the way of the already implausible narrative (“Trump said that this similar-sounding chemical might help, so we ingested fish tank cleaner”).

Court records show the wife who fed her husband fish cleaner (poison?) has a history of mental illness (paranoia, depression, donating to liberal politicians & Super PACS)


Coronavirus Prophets Exposed?  Sadly, the fools who follow these wolves won’t learn.  They want entertainment, not Jesus.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Dr. Michael L. Brown, radio host and apologist for the charismatic movement, said, “As many of you know, I believe in prophetic ministry today, recognizing from the NT that every word must be tested. Some well-known charismatic prophets have spoken of a major change (or, shift) concerning the virus by mid-April, by the end of Passover season.”

You barely have to test this “prophecy” to see it’s vague nonsense. Things could get better or worse, and these guys would say, “See? A major shift!”

This is called a “shotgun prophecy.” Take a shot at a month or season, scatter some unspecific terms, and whatever happens, your prophecy was just broad enough, it’s going to hit something you can take credit for.

Michael Brown is a joke.  Why does anyone take him seriously when he says nonsense like that and endorses these wolves?

The COVID-19 outbreak exposed every modern-day prophet and faith-healer as a fraud. Bethel Church in Redding, CA, who claims to heal the sick, told their faith healers to stay away from local hospitals.

In January, Sid Roth had twenty of the most high-dollar prophets on his show Supernatural to give their predictions for 2020. Guess how many predicted corona? Zero!


Lifestyle Is The Disease – Great summary of how homosexual and heterosexual promiscuity manifest themselves.

The clearest example of a lifestyle that creates more problems than it solves is homosexuality. Such a lifestyle involves temporary sexual attachments, unbridled sodomy, copious drug use, extreme vanity, and a general fixation on anything bodily to feel a spike of pleasure or happiness. The costs of pursuing this lifestyle are severe: mental illness, depression, drug dependency, sex dependency, lack of life meaning, and physical diseases in the form of HIV, butt cancer, HPV, and a host of other viral and bacterial infections. To resolve these costs, the homosexual doubles down on the lifestyle, pursuing even more sodomy, even including the abuse of children, but that makes the disease even more virulent.

Lacking in awareness of how he is harming himself, the homosexual will project the misery of his lifestyle onto others, complaining that he is being oppressed for his life choices by “bigots,” “homophobes,” and “Nazis,” and that he requires more rights and benefits to fulfill even more degrading aspects of his lifestyle. His crusade is futile. Since his lifestyle is the direct cause of his disease, he will continue to spiral downwards. The guilt from his lifestyle will manifest itself mentally and emotionally, while the sexual acts he performs will manifest in physical illness.

Heterosexuals who decide on a life of casual sex (or masturbation with the aid of porn) are actually performing a “homosexual lite” lifestyle. The same behavior is present though in diminished form. The heterosexual participates in temporary sexual attachments, unbridled fornication and masturbation, elevated drug use (particular alcohol), extreme vanity to better facilitate meaningless sex acts, and a fixation on things of this world (money, travel, fame, etc.).

If you put an active homosexual in a room with an active heterosexual fornicator, you will not be able to differentiate their character, which is centered around constantly evaluating potential sexual opportunities in their environment while maintaining an overly groomed appearance. The only difference would be their mannerisms and the object of their desires.

Your Wife & Daughter May Become Eligible for the Draft — He makes all the right points about why women shouldn’t be in combat, but misses the obvious: If feminism is right, then of course they should be forced to register and eligible to be drafted.  And when pressed, women will admit that they don’t want to be drafted!  So keep pushing the issue with everyone that if feminism is true, women should be required to register.  When they inevitably protest, then explain why they just undermined their entire worldview.  And then share that link.  They want to crash the party on their terms, but that isn’t how it should work.


Yep.  The government is the problem, not capitalism.  When the government gets involved and can pick winners and losers then corruption is inevitable.

I just heard of a big church where the pastor took a 50% pay cut and they had lots of layoffs (and I’ve heard many similar stories).  First, they should have saved more.  When I was on the board of a non-profit we didn’t want to have an excessive amount saved, but we had a target of at least 3-6 months of expenses saved in case of downturns.  That’s just wise living.  You aren’t trying to have an endowment situation like these ridiculous colleges with hundreds of millions saved while you gouge students, but you also don’t want to spend your ministry time constantly living on the edge.

But I really hope that the only reductions in giving are because people lost jobs or had pay cuts.  If they are just withholding donations because they couldn’t worship in person (“Hey, let’s save money by not going to church!!”) or because they are nervous, then that’s a pretty lousy faith.  Don’t be thrifty with Jesus.  This is a great time to put God first.

Details of Joe Biden Sexual Assault Allegation — The Leftists, including their wholly owned media, will ignore this, despite their “believe all women” rhetoric.  Watch for their tortured hypocrisy and always ask why they aren’t pursuing it with the same vigor they have when it was a Republican being accused.  These three distinctions are important.

There are no direct witnesses to the assault, but she is at least more credible than Christine Blasey Ford, for several reasons: (1) the allegations are not wildly out of character, like those made against Brett Kavanaugh; (2) Reade told people about the incident at the time; and (3) Reade has no political motive, being strongly opposed to Trump’s reelection.

More here:

Reade has not spent much time revealing what she claims Biden did to her — at least until now. For instance, last April she told The Union that Biden constantly touched her inappropriately. He also made comments about her shapely legs and and when she refused his advances her career in his office was harmed, she said.

“My life was hell,” Reade told the paper last year. “This was about power and control. I couldn’t get a job on the Hill.” She left Biden’s office in August of ’93.

Our pastor highlighted this at the end of his sermon on Sunday: Romans 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.  I love the juxtaposition of how the God of peace will crush Satan (i.e., Satan won’t think He is peaceful!).  Then  we are reminded of the grace of Jesus being with us.


Friendly reminder: If you aren’t reading the Bible regularly (or listening to it), it is because you have decided not to.


Apparently the SJWs have been wildly overreacting about everything they preach about (who knew?!) and are now having a major case of the sads because of the real issues of the Chinese virus, as they aren’t getting their normal attention.   It turns out, for example, that rushing through a “trans” surgery isn’t quite the emergency people were saying it was.  And maybe all those gender-neutral bathrooms weren’t as important as they said.  Same thing for all of their other phony and/or self-inflicted problems, such as equal pay for women (which was already equal for the same jobs and skills).

This may be one of the good things coming out of this crisis.  Just ignore those silly narcissists and focus on what is truly important.  Going into debt for Womyn’s Studies (or any other degree ending in “Studies”) was always stupid.  It was only the results of living in a magnificently blessed first world culture that people could even make up silly issues like the SJWs did.

But they should be really happy about their “safe spaces,” since no one should be within 6 ft. of them now.


It’s not just CNN: Media outlets keep leaving out that the Arizona man died after eating fish tank cleaner — Fools ingest fish tank cleaner and die.  Media leaves that part out to try to harm Trump.  But you can totally trust them on everything else.  Even Fox “forgot” to mention that in the title of the article.

And of course Biden knowingly lies (OK, he’s clueless, but his team knowingly lied) to foster more fear in the midst of a pandemic just to harm Trump.  These people are sick. WaPo: Four Pinocchios for Team Biden’s “Trump silenced CDC official!” accusation


Wuhan Virus Encroaches on Gay Lifestyle — Gross, but important to share, because gays do these disgusting things so reflexively that the government spends your tax money having to tell them not to.

As the bureaucrats warn,  “Rimming (mouth on anus) might spread COVID-19. Virus in feces may enter your mouth.”

Seems like getting the Wuhon Virus would be preferable to whatever that behavior could do to you.


Democrats are letting prisoners out because of the virus and police won’t respond to some crimes.  Oh, and the Dems still don’t want you to own guns.  What could go wrong?

ChiComs Are Culpable; Media/Democrats Side With Them — The America-hating Left is setting us up for the next virus as well.  If we can’t acknowledge the root cause and corrective actions of this one it will just happen again.

Chinese wet markets, where exotic animals are butchered and sold under unhygienic conditions, caused SARS and now the Wuhan virus. The government is totalitarian, yet has permitted these breeding grounds for viruses, even while cracking down on trivial thought crimes. The communist rulers helped the virus spread by suppressing information, lying that it could not be transmitted between humans, and destroying samples and research that confirmed the seriousness of the disease. Those who tried to raise the alarm in the early stages were silenced by the police state. This cost the rest of the world 2 months, which could have been used to avert the massive crisis that is currently unfolding.


The Democrats held up the recovery bill to add things like abortions, corporate board diversity, airline emissions and $10,000 payoffs of college debt.   Because taxpayers need to pay to kill more children and to subsidize the debauchery and bad financial decisions of others.  The Republican ads write themselves.


Dems: Trump is Hitler!

Also Dems: Let Trump nationalize the supply chain and control it all!

They obviously just want that precedent set in case they ever take power again.

Biden plans to come out and second guess Trump every day.  Hopefully people will recognize that for the shameless attention getting politics that it is, and it will backfire like most of the other Trump-hating strategies of these deranged people.


Regulations kills jobs.  The real minimum wage is always zero.  California killed freelance.  The Leftists keep telling themselves that they are helping workers, but they always make things worse.   They do it because they are controlled by unions.

 


Madness: Teachers Accuse NYC Schools of Covering Up Chinese Coronavirus Threat — Yikes.  And yet another reason to get out of government schools.  You can see how much they care about the students.  Oh, and they are all Democrats, all the time.

The information freeze started March 10, when Carranza, in an email obtained by The Post, told administrators not to alert city health officials about COVID-19 cases among students or staff.
“At the moment, there is no reason for any school to call [the Health Department] to report potential or confirmed cases,” Carranza wrote, repeating the statement later in the same email. . . .
At several campuses and DOE offices citywide, multiple staffers have tested positive but affected buildings remained open while workers, students and parents were kept in the dark, whistleblowers said.
At the Grand Street campus in Williamsburg, which houses three high schools, a teacher returned from a trip to China over the February break. Despite reports of the outbreak, the teacher did not self-quarantine, but returned to teach kids in all three schools Feb. 26 through Feb. 29, a staffer said.
The teacher then became sick and stopped working. The school was not closed, and employees were not notified, insiders said.
Up to four other staffers have since become sick, they said.

This is sheer madness. Why would a teacher travel to China at a time when this dangerous virus outbreak was going on there? I mean, Trump shut off incoming flights from China on Feb. 3, and yet this Brooklyn teacher went to China nearly three weeks later, and taught for four days before falling ill? And then — to add insult to injury — the city’s department of education suppressed the information about this COVID-19 case? This is criminal negligence. Hell, it’s nearly manslaughter!


Eugene Gu: a history of abuse behind the social justice personality — So the Trump-hating “doctor” (no longer licensed) is just a creepy fraud?  No wonder the Left quotes him so reflexively.  Among other things, he Tweeted from a fake female account to attack others and make himself look more prominent.  What a pathetic SJW.

Before I spoke to Allison, I had noticed unsettling tweets from Mary Laury’s profile, too. I was writing a profile on Gu, and I’d been trying to get in touch with some of his critics. Though I agreed with Gu’s left-leaning political views, it was clear most media coverage of him was very one-sided: they only told Gu’s story, the one that made him out to be a victim and hero. I tweeted at an especially ardent critic, the (now deleted) @NefariousMD, asking for his perspective on Gu. @NefariousMD often posted screenshots of an unsettling piece of Gu’s past: a series of arrest citations, including filed restraining orders and allegations of domestic violence. I’d come across the allegations early in my research, and asked Gu about it in our interviews. . . .

Allison had told me that she hadn’t wanted to go public with what happened between her and Gu: he was supporting good causes, and she didn’t want to take anything away from that. But discovering the Mary Laury account pushed her over the edge. In July 2017, she tweeted: “I’m freaking out now knowing my ex boyfriend was tormenting me with a fake female account. Sending me DMs obsessing over him, asking intimate details about my sex life, and then trying to convince me they slept together. I’m going to be sick.” She described a man obsessed with his Twitter following, a date that turned into something resembling sexual assault: “He is on top of me, groping me, trying to kiss me as I keep trying to get up and telling him no. Moving my face away from his kisses. He kept saying he wanted to have unprotected sex so he could get me pregnant so I could never leave him. I continued to fight him off until eventually he tired himself out and passed out.”


Calling it the Wuhon or Chinese Coronavirus wasn’t racist or xenophobic at all, until Trump said it.

Good prayer I came across . . .

Prayer for a Pandemic

May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable.

May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close remember those who have no options.

May we who have to cancel our trips remember those who have no safe place to go.

May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home.

As fear grips our country, let us choose love.

During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways to be loving embrace of God to our neighbors.

Amen

The ending of the book of Job is in the Bible for a reason

And the rest of the Bible is also there for a reason.

People often have legitimate questions about suffering or all sorts of big picture questions about God, such as why He did or didn’t do this or that.  Sometimes the questions are natural and from reasonable motives, but they are often smokescreens.  Never forget Romans 1.  People know there is a God but they suppress the truth in unrighteousness.  I know, I used to be one of them!

Romans 1:18–21 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

In talking to a few skeptical Kairos prison ministry participants once they had lots of questions like that.  They were looking for reasons not to believe.  My strategy in situations like that is to give a quick answer then point to greater truths.

Example: One asked, “What if Adam hadn’t sinned?”  I could tell from the conversation to that point that it wasn’t coming from faith or genuine concern, but from skepticism. You could waste a lot of time on that sort of hypothetical, so I just smiled and said, “If Adam hadn’t sinned and ruined everything, then I would have.”  They got the joke and it gave me a chance to segue to the gospel.

Back to Job: As you probably know, Job had lots of things he wanted to know from God, but when God showed up and asked questions then Job got quiet very quickly.  He didn’t get the answers he wanted, just like we often don’t get answers we want.  It is important to acknowledge that to people without apology.

Job 38:1–7 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me. “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

And it goes on from there.

But as I like to say, the end of the book of Job is in the Bible for a reason: We don’t get to know everything.  Job was more devout than any of us but he didn’t get answers (at least at that time).

But the rest of the Bible is there for a reason as well: God reveals countless profound things about himself to us that we do need to know, including his remarkably gracious terms for saving our wretched souls.  Of course we can’t know everything about God, but we can know a lot.  So point people to what we do know and don’t get caught up in what we may never know (at least not in this life).

I also like this passage.  It reminds me that when there are things I don’t or can’t know I should just follow Jesus:

John 21:22 Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!”

And this is a classic.  People forget that our default destination is Hell.   They think the default is Heaven and that you only go to Hell if you are “really” bad.

Romans 9:18–20 So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills. You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?”

We just can’t fully comprehend his greatness!

Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

Instead of apologizing for God when bad things happen, as some “Christian” Leftists do when pretending that God isn’t completely sovereign, we should switch the narrative.  When people ask where is God, include something like this: “God is where He has always been: Ready and willing to forgive repentant sinners.  He is also still withholding his wrath from those who completely deserve it right now: People who have killed their own children, who have sex out of wedlock with impunity, who mock his created order with every sort of perversion – including pretending they are a different gender, who are greedy, who are unkind, who are liars, and on and on.  Namely, everyone, including me!  So repent now and accept his gracious forgiveness.”

God is not soft on evil.  The cross was simultaneously the great act of evil ever (fallen man killing God in the flesh) and the greatest act of good (saving those who couldn’t save themselves).

More about knowing God:

1 Corinthians 2:11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.

Isaiah 55:8–11 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

P.S. I liked this comment from the Bible Knowledge Commentary:

Like a deaf critic of Bach or a blind critic of Raphael is the unregenerate critic of God’s Word.

Why Media Does Not Call It “Wuhan Virus” — Because they hate Trump and America.

First, the Wuhan Coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China. Second, the Chinese Communist Party not only ignored but completely covered up the disease for as long as they could, allowing it to not only spread among its own people but to countries around the world. Third, diseases are regularly named after the area (like Ebola), city (like Lyme Disease), or region/nation (like Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) of their origin.

However, No American who has ever heard of West Nile Virus, German Measles, Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever, St. Louis Encephalitis, or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever believes the phrase “Chinese Virus” is racist or xenophobic. The World Health Organization even acknowledged the reason they came up with the clunky, manufactured name “COVID-19” was to prevent the stigma from touching China.

Bonus: The media called it the Chinese/Wuhon virus before
Trump did.  Because consistency.

Also this: ‘Not as long as I’m president’: Trump tells reporter pursuing ‘racism’ angle why he refers to COVID19 as the ‘Chinese virus’.  I love it.

Oh, and this: SCREENSHOTS: Chinese state media used to call it ‘Wuhan virus’ but now that’s racist?  Those racist Chinese, always being racist against the Chinese!


Great video on the Left’s perversion of the world tolerance.  You can only tolerate what you disagree with.  We should tolerate people, not ideas.  They do neither.  They immediately go to name-calling and “canceling” other people (e.g., trying to destroy their reputations and/or take their jobs away).


Remember that Andrew Gillum was nearly governor of Florida and he was being considered as a VP pick for Biden.  Married father of three, rising Democrat star, caught in meth-fueled orgy with gay escort in a hotel room.  You think the media would have ignored this it he was a white Republican?

WaPo: Biden wasn’t “lying.” He just “described his stance inaccurately.”

A Washington Post fact-checker ruled Thursday that Joe Biden hadn’t lied when he said he supported a fracking ban during Sunday’s Democratic presidential debate. Rather, Biden had simply “described his fracking stance inaccurately.”

The Post gave Biden “Zero Pinocchios” for saying during the most recent Democratic debate that he opposed fracking entirely. Instead, the paper pointed to the Biden campaign’s explanation that the candidate had “misspoken” and that “his position was the same as ever,” opposing fracking only on public lands.Meanwhile, the Post criticized those who quoted Biden’s remarks verbatim.


What a sad little snowflake.  He actually called the police because the polite Prager U people were sharing ideas that “terrorized” him.  Yet he couldn’t name one thing wrong with the ideas.  Too many years of Leftist indoctrination for that kid!
