Great thoughts from a long-time employee awaiting a fairly serious surgery (he is a very committed Christian): “I have no worries about health or money, I just focus on pleasing God.”


I love how it says it is a throne of grace (not judgment): Hebrews 4:16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Coronavirus: Mexicans demand crackdown on Americans crossing the border — They are so racist!!!


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.


Profs Fear Public Will Learn What They Have Been Teaching — They should be afraid.  I’m glad that parents may see what nonsense they’ve been paying for.


Massachusetts governor bans reusable shopping bags, lifts restrictions on plastic bags – Wow, some good news out of all this.  Hardest hit: Smug Greens.


‘Look at the cute little fascists’! Seattle-area NPR station refusing to air WH COVID19 pressers live ‘due to a pattern of false and misleading information’ — What a coincidence – right when Trump’s poll numbers went up!  Why on earth does NPR get taxpayer funding?!  And the major networks just “happened” to come to all the same conclusion at the same time about limiting Trump’s exposure when his approval ratings were shown to be high.


Harvard not looking very woke in dealing with pandemic – They “only” have a $40 billion endowment but are sticking it to the little guys.  Remember these smug, insufferable people when this is over.


Pennsylvania supreme court approves mandatory closure of all gun stores in state — Gun and ammo sales will go up a lot once this crisis is over.  You can be sure the government will shut down sales when you really need them.

Roundup

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?


In China, critics of the government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis simply disappear — Just like in the U.S.!  Except not at all like the U.S.  If only the Leftists would acknowledge how much freedom of speech they have and would quit repeating Chinese propaganda.


New York Health Officials Told Residents to Congregate in Huge Crowds in “Defiance” of Coronavirus — Political correctness and virtue signaling are deadly, chapter 897.  But but but it is all Trump’s fault!


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!

Dems: Trump is incompetent!

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.


NYT visualization: How the Chinese government enabled the spread of coronavirus — Glad to see the NYT told the truth (albeit with a wimpy headline).  China is the cause of the great financial and deadly catastrophe in history, yet they and the Democrats are working 24×7 to blame Trump.  Sickening.

Still a great day to be a Christian!  Hope you are all well.  What are you doing to stay busy?  Gorgeous day yesterday – was able to sit on the porch, play a little guitar, talk to passing neighbors without getting too close, read, etc.  Trying to keep a normal routine of Bible reading, Bible verse memorization, working out, etc.  We were able to go to our ballroom dance studio to practice, which was nice (group lessons are canceled and we stopped private lessons for now, but we had the entire upstairs floor to ourselves — 100x safer than the grocery store!).

Hopefully your church is streaming your services, but if not, you can join us here at 10:45 AM or 6:00 PM (EST) — https://christcovenant.org/


Aaaaaaand . . . political correctness and virtue signaling are still deadly.  Yet that’s what the Dems are doing here.


Ohio halts “nonessential” abortions during COVID-19 crisis — Sort of.  The Molech-worshiping ghouls of Planned Parenthood et al will continue to find loopholes to kill children.  After all, they say that child-murder is essential – especially when we are trying to save lives from this virus, or something.


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

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Tucker Carlson both call on Sen. Richard Burr to resign over stock dump; Sen.

Baltimore mayor pleads: Stop shooting each other so we can save hospital beds for coronavirus patients — A little late in the game now that the citizens were turned against the police so that they became timid and the lawlessness increased.


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?

New Marvel Comic Introduces ‘Non-binary’ Heroes Called ‘Snowflake’ and ‘Safespace’

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!

This is an outstanding video about Christian apologetics.  It shows how evidential arguments can be helpful, but that they have significant limits.  The non-believers have lots of “rescue devices,” but there is a line of arguments they can’t refute but only sidestep.  Don’t follow the “neutral ground” space where you abandon the Bible.  Sadly, many apologists do that.  There is no neutral ground.   And both sides have presuppositions they should acknowledge.  But if God’s word is infallible – and it is! — then why would we ever give that up?! The laws of logic, the uniformity of the world and universal moral laws can’t be grounded by atheism, but only by biblical Christianity.

James MacDonald Announces Return to Pulpit with 8-Part Series at Calvary Chapel South Bay — Predictable but disappointing.  What a lack of discernment by this church!

MacDonald then addressed the crowd, telling them that he had pastored a “wonderful church in Chicago,” but adding: “God has seen it to be fit to allow us to be separated from the church that we loved for our whole lifetime. And it has been a real crucible of suffering for us.

”Neither MacDonald nor Gill told the congregation that MacDonald’s former church, Harvest Bible Chapel, had disqualified MacDonald from public ministry for a “substantial pattern of sinful behavior.” They also did not mention that an audit conducted by Harvest found that MacDonald had misused millions in church funds “for improper financial benefit.”


‘Our media is broken’: NYT firefighters team up to feed bogus narrative deliberately mischaracterizing Donald Trump’s COVID19 response — Just another reason to never trust the media – especially the NT times.  They tweeted the part of Trump’s comments in bold and left out the rest.  Why?  To make Trump look mean and evil.  So he was just giving practical advice, and the deliberately made it look like he was being flippant and callous.  So we are in the middle of a national emergency / pandemic and their first priority is to make him look back by omitting the context of his words?!  Such fake news.

Just finished reading The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson, which covered Churchill’s first year as Prime Minister.  Great book!  And a good lesson: Those people learned to live with the risks of being bombed day after day.  Of course they didn’t like it, but they adapted to their new risks.  Our problem today is that we live with countless risks but let the media and others tell us when to freak out over new ones.


British woman sues medical center for allowing her to “transition” her gender — I hope that many sue these ghouls into oblivion for destroying their lives when they were foolish children.  They should sue their parents as well if they were complicit.  Maybe a few bankruptcies would cut down on this wicked virtue-signaling.



Would YOU go on a sex strike? Meet the four women who use bedroom bans to make their husbands clean up and be better fathers to their children — What a satanic article.  It will encourage women to destroy their families.  Gee, trading sex for something you want . . . just like prostitution!  My wife has known women like that.  No wonder more and more men have no interest in marriage.

That should be grounds for divorce, as the marriage was entered into under false pretenses and the wife is abandoning the relationship.

I’ll wait for the article showing all the great things that happen when men withhold finances, protection, yard work, etc. in exchange for sex.

There are no guarantees, of course, but if I was single I’d mention that article to see how a woman reacts.  If she didn’t explicitly condemn it I’d run away.

I noted on a Lakers blog that border control is crucial, and loads of dim-witted Leftists tried to mock me by saying the virus came through planes and boats.  Apparently they didn’t realize that we have land AND water borders.   And they are so wedded to their open borders vote-buying insanity that they have to pretend that letting people pour in from Mexico doesn’t risk our health at all.

Hunter Biden scandals explained: Ukraine, China, drug history and more — He and his father are as crooked as can be.  Joe deceptively tries to shift the focus to his son by saying, “No one has said my son has done anything wrong,” but the real issue is what Joe has done wrong.   Also this: Biden campaign touts Ukrainian anti-corruption activist who previously called Hunter Biden’s actions ‘very bad’.

The Dems are counting on the media to cover this up.


Staggering that the media is this stupid.  Note that both of them were off by a factor of one million.  And it wasn’t some side comment.  They had others involved to copy the original Twitter comment and show it on the screen.

This is a great lesson for all the covetous Democrats out there: Even if you kill all the billionaires and distribute the money (which you’d only get to do once), then each person would still get very little. So *maybe* the billionaires aren’t the source of all your problems and fleecing them won’t impact your life that much . . .

Tom Cotton says Dems’ ‘depraved’ abortion views are bigger issue than Schumer’s threat — Molech-worshipers don’t like any restrictions on child-killing.  They not only want to kill children up the first breath and make you pay for it, they also want to be able to kill any survivors.  Because they think the Founding Fathers promised them a dead child no matter what.

“Let’s get to the root of the issue here,” Cotton told “America’s Newsroom.” “Chuck Schumer and the Democrats filibustered legislation that would prevent infanticide of a young baby that survives an abortion, prevent late-term abortion of infants that can feel pain in their mother’s womb. These are depraved practices that no civilized society should permit, yet, the Democrats are so radical on abortion that they’d filibuster those bills in lockstep. That’s the real issue at stake here.”
