Pat Robertson: If You Find Trump Revolting, You’re Revolting Against God! (Video)

Crazy Uncle Pat is at it again! Never one to let a controversy go by unscathed, the poster child(?) for senility weighed in on “The Russian Connection” scandal.

Ignoring the fact that Flynn’s phone calls to the Russian Ambassador boarded on, or over, the treason line, Robertson, claimed the intelligence community was out to get Flynn. According to Uncle Pat, they were specifically monitoring Flynn’s phone calls.

Actually, U.S. intelligence agencies routinely monitor the communications of Russian diplomats. The problem for Flynn is that the then future National Security Advisor didn’t know enough about national security to know that.

Robertson doesn’t believe the intelligence agencies were going rogue to pick on Flynn. Not by the hair on your chinny, chin chin! The instigators of the plot were the usual suspects (of the tinfoil turban crowd). It was Democrats, liberal government officials and (of course) the media.

Let me tell you! Uncle Pat had more than a few things to say about that and the “grand conspiracy” to bring down Trump and his crew. For starters, he pulled out the “good(?) book.”

The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed,” Robertson said that those challenging Trump are really fighting against God. – Psalm 2:2

Then, of course, he added his own twisted take on the situation.

I think, somehow, the Lord’s plan is being put in place for America and these people are not only revolting against Trump, they’re revolting against what God’s plan is for America. These other people have been trying to destroy America. These left-wingers and so-called progressives are trying to destroy the country that we love and take away the freedoms they love. They want collectivism. They want socialism. What we’re looking at is free markets and freedom from this terrible, overarching bureaucracy. They want to fight as much as they can but I think the good news is the Bible says, “He that sits in the heavens will laugh them to scorn,” and I think that Trump’s someone on his side that is a lot more powerful than the media.

Well, if it was Big Daddy’s plan to inflict Trump upon this country, he must be mighty pissed at us about something.

In parting, for your listening and dancing delight, I present a minute and 23 seconds of this insanity. Enjoy!

Was Flynn Forced Out By ‘Devil-Worshiping, Luciferian, Demon-Possessed Maniacs?’

Heronimus BoschWelcome to the weird, warped, wacky world of Rick Wiles. This is a world straight out of the fever dream of John of Patmos or maybe Hieronymus Bosch. The Rickster runs a nut-job radio program called “Trunews.” (“Tru”, it ain’t and as for “news,” it would only be that if he ever got anything right.) 

In the past, he has regaled us with such knee-slappers as,

Yesterday (2/14/17) on his show, the Rickster had another brain fart. (Either that or his tinfoil toupee slipped off again.)

Rick Wiles shares the disturbing mechanics behind the spiritual melee currently in full swing for control of President Trump’s cabinet and the fate of Christianity worldwide. Rick also discusses the mad ramblings echoing through the Democratic party, and reminds the audience of the communist origins behind the revolt for America’s soul.

I’m running low on Emetrol, so I’m just going to cover a portion of the program. If you’ve stocked up, click on the “show” link above. (RDT not responsible for any mental or medical malfunctions resulting from listening to his ravings.)

Here’s a short run-down of some of the bovine meadow muffins from the show:

  • Flynn was dumped because he knew about Hillary’s child molestation ring. (Can you say “Pizzagate.”) Of course, that only existed in the fevered brows of the Tinfoil Turban set, but hey, why let a thoroughly debunked conspiracy go to waste?
  • Devil-worshiping, Luciferian, demon-possessed maniacs” have formed a “criminal cabal [that is] running this nation and much of the world” that allows them to engage in “child trafficking, child molestation, child rape, [and] child murder.
  • Many of the key officials, elected and appointed, and in corporate board rooms and in Hollywood and in New York City, they are part of a global child molestation ring,”
  • Hillary is now “relishing in the fact that they brought down General Flynn because he knows what they are and what they’re doing.”

Here’s a short clip from the program. Hopefully, a small dose won’t be too lethal.

I’d say “stay tuned,” but I’m not that much of a sadist.

Deranged Jim Bakker Is Sure Trump Is BFF With Jesus–Will Fight Evil Women Who Kill Babies

Jim Bakker, for those of you who don’t keep up with troglodyte bible-thumpers, is a lecherous, larcenist, preacher, who spent a few years learning the finer points of “rock hockey” after being caught for his misdeeds. In 1989,he was sentenced to 45 years in the  “Stony Lonesome,” but he wrangled a sentence reduction and only served five.

Since his release, he’s back at the old con shop, mostly pushing apocalyptic visions of the future and selling survival food and gear. (Of course, if you’re “raptured,” it’s a waste of money.)

To push his predictions, products and profits, he has an online broadcast (The Jim Bakker Show), with guests like Rick Wyles, Rick Joyner, Mike Huckabee and Carl Gallups.

In fact, Mr. Gallups was a guest on last Monday’s (1/16/16) show.

Carl Gallups has all the standard right-wing filbert credentials: He’s anti-gay, claiming it will completely destroy society and lead to enslavement.

He’s against Common Core, because, in his words,

Under Common Core, our smallest children in pre-school, kindergarten, etc. will learn about “the mechanics of homosexual sex because it has now been deemed normal and natural.

He’s also a “Sandy Hook Truther” claiming that the whole thing was a government hoax to justify new firearm restrictions and the grieving parents were actors.

Is it any wonder that Trump said Gallup’s endorsement was a “great honor” during the campaign?

As I said, on Monday Bakker had Gallup as a guest on his show. During their discussion, Bakker went off the deep end (again). He claimed that a million women are getting ready to march (Women’s March on Washington) because they want to kill their babies. They also want to kill Trump, because he’s leading the battle against evil. If they do that,they’re free to “sin.”

During the program, we also found out that Trump is a “born again” Christian (If that’s true, I want to see his “re-birth certificate.”) and has been ministered to for 15 years in preparation for the presidency.

Then Gallup piped in that the “demonic powers” (aka “Globalists“) are freaking out over the possibility that Trump may be president for 8 years, followed by Pence for another 8 and Trump’s son Eric taking over after that. (Hell, if that were a possibility, everybody should be freaking out!)

If you have enough Emetrol handy, here’s a clip of the proceedings:

Confessions of a ‘Demon Possessed’ Progressive

Yes folks, evidently, somewhere within my inner being, there dwelleth a demon. What kind of demon, I’m not sure. It can’t be an Incubus  because I haven’t gotten laid in ages. Maybe it’s Beelzebub. I’ve always considered myself to be a “fallen angel.”

Don’t get me wrong. I am not a subscriber to any of the “Current Prevailing Mythologies,” although I think Zoroastrianism is a hoot! (Jews and Early Christians must have thought so as well, since they adopted so much of it.)

I am not an Agnostic. Agnostics are really just “Chicken Atheists”.

I’m a “real, live, full-blown, fire-breathing Atheist” complete with horns and a tail.dragon-253539_1280-1080x654OK, I exaggerated a little on that last bit. I am real and I am alive (at least the last time I checked). I am full (especially around dinnertime), but I haven’t been blown in ages. Also, my breath may be a mite odoriferous, but it isn’t really incendiary. (The breath from my nether “mouth” is another matter altogether.) And, the closest I get to “horns and a tail” is being horny for some tail. (Boy, am I gonna hear from the “Fems” on that one.)

However, despite my disbelief in things that go “Woo Woo” in the night, it seems I’ve been infected by one of the Woo-Wooers. At least that’s what court-marshaled and kicked out, ex Navy chaplain, Gordon Klingenschmitt, claims.

It seems I’ve had the temerity to criticize Gordon in the past. It all started back in May of 2015. At that time, Mr K wasn’t too tickled about SCOTUS refusing to hear a challenge to New Jersey’s law, banning conversion therapy.

Of course, he knew exactly why they took that awful position. SCOTUS was cooperating with demonic spirits. Upon learning about that, I decided to research and write a post on the matter.

Over the following months, I’ve had occassions to revisit this loony toon. I mean, how could I pass up a filbert who claims that the FCC lets demonic spirits molest and visually rape children.

Well, (And, you may notice a thread running through all this.) criticizing this crackpot brought on a bad case of demon possession.

Le’ me ‘splain, or rather, lat the Colorado Coo Coo ‘splain.

On a recent Pray in Jesus Name program, Mr K revisited his favorite theme:

There is a demonic spirit of persecution in the world. They all hate Christians and they want to silence us and they want to accuse us and they want to falsely attribute words to us that we never said and then they want to twist our words to claim that we are the haters, that we are the criminals for simply exposing their evil.

He went on to claim that Christians that tell the truth are “going to stir up some angry demons inside of your opposition.

That doesn’t mean the Christians are wrong. It means there is something inside of those other people that was there before we came and now it’s getting angry because it is being exposed and that is the demonic spirit.

Problem is, Gordon Klingenschmitt is NOT a “Christian!” He’s what I term a “Khristian.” Christ never taught the bullshit this anal pit spews. In fact, a good percentage of his oral bowel movements are antithetical to Christ’s teachings. (Yes folks, like most of you, I spent my childhood going to Sunday School.)

That, (at least according to him) still leaves me with my possession problem. I’m not into exorcisms, but I wonder if a good strong dose of Ipecac would work?

Speaking of medicine, if you’ve got some Emetrol handy, here’s the program segment:

Shameless Plug #1: If my ramblings don’t revolt you, check out my FaceBook page (“Grouchy’s Grumbles”). You might just enjoy it. Better yet, you might “like” it.  I’d love it if you did. It’s free (and worth every cent) and almost completely painless (other than the usual bad jokes).

Shameless Plug #2: If you happen to be connected to a major progressive news site, I’m looking for a gig. One that allows me to be me. (I have a hell of a hard time being someone else.) If you are such a person, give me a buzz over on “Grouchy’s Grumbles.”

Was Louisiana Flooding Caused By Government Weather Weapon?

29121363206_e72f558de7_bSeems like every time a horrendous event happens, the kooks come out. From Sandy Hook to 911, there’s always a certain contingent of mental midgets shouting from the cesspool that it’s a “false flag” government op. Last month’s flooding in Louisiana is no exception.

Meet Steve Quayle. (I’m not sure if he’s related to George “Pappy” Bush’s former Veep, Dan “potatoe” Quayle.) You may not have heard about him, I certainly hadn’t. However, he seems to be known to the tinfoil toupee set.

Ol’ Steve’s a radio commentator. (Well, shortwave radio, anyway.) He’s a guest of cutting edge conspiracy kooks such as Alex Jones, (A Trump consultant, btw) The Hagmann & Hagmann Report and the Khristians’ favorite ex-con scam artist, Jim Bakker.

Steve’s a believer in zombies, the Nazi’s alien base in Antartica, Planet X (aka Nibiru), Giant Reptilian Man Eating Demons and weather weapons. It’s the latter item that’s the subject of this post.

It seems (to Steve’s short-circuited brain cells) that the government decided to use it’s weather weapon on the unsuspecting citizens of Louisiana. (I guess the government figured they were “all wet” anyway, so what’s the big deal?) According to Steve, this had something to do with the government elites wanting to create a “generated famine” after stockpiling food in their “underground bases.”

In order to inform the nation of this nefarious plot, Steve appeared on the Jim Bakker Show. (Have I mentioned that both Steve and Jim’s websites sell food stocks to survive the coming apocalypse, in whatever form it may take? Not that that has anything to do with it of course.)

As Steve put it,

If you control the weather, you control the food; you control the food, you control the people. This is what’s going on in Louisiana.

There was a standing wave in Louisiana, that’s a weather weapon and weather weapons are real. And people, they knew it was going to come but they still stayed and that’s what’s tragic because weather weapons are real.

What you’re watching is a nation under siege.

You say you’d like to learn more about the evil American government’s weather war on its own citizens? Well, rejoice! Steve’s got you covered! He just happens to have written an entire paperback book, “Weather Wars,” on the subject and he’ll be glad to sell you a copy. And as an added incentive, for this month only, he’ll drop the price in half. What was a bargain at $30, can be yours for the low, low price of just $15. Such a DEAL! (If you’re as stupid as he hopes you are!)

Wing-nut: Carry Guns And Extra Ammo To Church

SIG_Pro_by_Augustas_DidzgalvisAccording to the Oath Keepers, (or, as I refer to them: “Oaf Creepers”) ISIS could be planning to attack your church.

Beware! Or, better yet, be armed! BE VERY HEAVILY ARMED!

But first, a bit of history before the hysteria, to place this nonsense in context.

The Oaf Creepers were founded by Elmer Stewart Rhodes. He likes to go by “Stewart,” but I think “Elmer” is a much better fit. (He’s a “Fudd” if I’ve ever heard of one.)

The Creepers are, as one pundit put it, “A conservative group whose members make Ted Nugent look like a bleeding-heart Rachel Maddow.” They claim to be defenders of the Constitution. (Or at least, their rather warped interpretation of it.)

These ‘Murican “patriots” are primarily composed of current and ex military and law enforcement types. Like all quasi-military groups, they pride themselves on following orders. Except, of course, their infamous “Declaration of Orders We Will NOT Obey.”

Orders like:

  • confiscate guns,
  • detain Americans as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal,
  • invade Texas or any other state if they secede from the country or,
  • enter a state in force without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor.

It’s highly unlikely that any government entity would ever give them such orders. If the country ever devolves into a police state, the government has more than enough muscle to do this with their own people. They won’t need a bunch of mentally challenged ammosexuals to help out.

The Creepers might want to check with Herr Trump about that “detaining Americans as ‘unlawful enemy combatants’ or to subject them to trial by military tribunal” bit. He seems to be in favor of that.

Also, I don’t seem to recall the legislatures and governors of Nevada (Bundy Ranch Standoff) or Missouri (Ferguson) sending them an invitation.

In Nevada, they were too much even for the Bundy Bozos. The Security Chief kicked them out! In Ferguson, the St. Louis County police threatened them with arrest for acting as a security force without a license. They promptly left, tail tucked firmly between their legs. (Well, they needed something down there to fill the void.)

That should give you a general idea about these mental midgets. If you want to explore more (you masochist, you) check out their website, but keep the Emetrol handy.

Now, on to their latest idiocy.

Since a couple of ISIS idiots attacked a church and killed a priest in France, ol’ Elmer knows why it happened and who’s next.

As to why: because the “modern, emasculated, French metro-sexuals” at the church in Normandy that suffered the attack weren’t “real men.” (i.e. armed to the teeth)

As to who’s next? Us, of course! After all, isn’t everything about us?

According to the post on the Oaf Creepers’ website, ISIS has a “kill list” of nearly 15,000 Americans and they’re coming to a church near you.

But what about here in America? Are there real men in your church? Are they armed and ‘switched on’ during service, to safeguard the church and those who worship inside?… A church will be hit. And it might be yours. Get ready.

For those of you who are shaking in your boots, shoes, sandals, socks or whatever, not to worry. Elmer knows just how to handle the situation.

  1. Go armed to church… I recommend a reliable semi-automatic, high capacity handgun of at least 9mm caliber for that task, such as a Glock or Smith and Wesson M&P, with at least one spare magazine.
  2. Carry a backup gun, and/or a no-nonsense fixed blade knife as a backup, carried within easy reach of both your hands (carry it up front near your belt buckle).
  3. Have a couple shotguns (at least) discretely hidden within the church.
  4. Wear body armor under your suit.
  5. Have radios for communication
  6. Have an exterior armed security team.  It would be foolish to rely only on armed men inside the church.  You need men on the outside too.
  7. Have a layered security. Don’t rely on just one team, either outside or inside.  You need both.  And ideally, on the outside, in addition to the overt team manning the exterior entrances, you would also have someone in a discrete location, who is not easily seen by bad guys.
  8. All competent adults in the congregation should be armed.
  9. Train people in emergency medical and have trauma kits on hand.

There you have it, folks. The simple nine-step solution to your jihad problems. Simply turn your church, parish, temple or synagogue into an armed camp and all your worries will evaporate like mist on a summer morning.

Unless, of course, you’re attacked by suicide bombers. Then, you’re S.O.L.

p.s. Note to Elmer and the Oafs: “Real Men” don’t need to pack penis substitutes.

Idaho faith healer: ‘Medicine is a product from Satan’

Laying_on_of_handsIdaho is in the news again. Oregon’s beautiful, but slightly wacky neighbor (It’s Tea Party troglodyte heaven, seasoned with a large dash of Mormon style fundamentalism.) is considering whether to remove a shield law that allows parents to kill their children by denying them proper medical care because “religion.”

After two children died from lack of medical care because of the parents’ beliefs, the Governor, Butch Otter, ordered a task force to look into the situation.

As you can see from the chart below, Idaho is one of nine states where you can get away with negligent homicide, manslaughter or capital murder because “Big Daddy” told you to do it. It’s also a “get out of jail free” card in Washington, Iowa, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio, West Virginia and Virginia.
(You pull that shit in Oregon and we’ll give you a multi-year vacation at the Iron Bar Inn.)

(Click to enlarge)

(Click to enlarge)

You’ll find a lot more info on the subject at Child Inc.

Last Thursday, (8/9/16) the Idaho legislature held hearings on the matter. Among those testifying, was self-professed “faith healer,” Dan Sevy. (Ever notice that these charlatans are always “self-professed?”) Accompanying Dan were 12 of “God’s groupies” from the cult-like church, “Followers of Christ.”

According to their post in Wikipedia, among the “Followers of Christ” doctrines is “a literal interpretation of scripture, including in the power of faith healing…the use of prayer and laying on of hands by church elders is believed able to cure illness…members of the Followers of Christ refuse all forms of medicine and professional medical care…The church practices shunning of those who violate or challenge church doctrine, including those who seek medical treatment.

In fairness (and more than a little embarrassment) I have to admit that the “Followers of Christ” organization is based in Oregon (with “churches” in a few other states, including Idaho). In fact, they are the reason we have strict laws against this sort of thing.

After several cases of members’ children “gone to meet their maker” a bit early because faith, prayers and laying hands on them didn’t cut it, the Oregon legislature “murdered” the religious exemption unanimously.

Which brings us back to the aforementioned “faith healer” and his attempt to keep Idaho from doing the same.

In his testimony, Sevy stated,

I want to point out that we believe in freedom of health care. Not free health care, but freedom of choice in health care.

Translation (according to church precepts): “We believe in the freedom to deny health care to the sick and dying.”

He continued,

And there’s no greater suffering than one that is personal to oneself, whether it be himself or his children, and I as a parent find the suffering of my children far greater than my own.

At this point, a State Senator, Jeff Siddoway, commented that he is religious (Mormon) and considers medicine one of God’s gifts. (If that’s true, Big Daddy was a few thousand years late in giving it.)

Sevy wasn’t buying that!

We believe that pharmaceuticals and medicine is a product from Satan. Proof can be found in one of the lost books of Enoch.

Equating it with “witchcraft and sorcery,” he continued,

Those who imbibe in those things will not attain a home in heaven…We do disagree with medicine and believe that it puts our very eternal lives in jeopardy…Our goal is eternity, it isn’t here. Our goal is not suffering…If the statute is changed, I’ll not change anything I do.

Btw, Sevy was the father of five children. Only three survived!

Will the task force make any recommendations to the legislature? And, if they do, will the legislature do anything about it?

I wouldn’t be inclined to hold my breath. After all this is the state legislature that passed a law requiring that the bible be part of the curriculum in courses such as law, philosophy, ethics, astronomy, biology, geology, world geography and archaeology. (Fortunately, the governor vetoed the law.)

However, if you think shield laws like this should be dumped in the trash where they belong, there is an online petition to get Idaho to do something about it. You’ll find it here.

Stay tuned!

In the meantime, check out the “faith healer’s” performance below and see how many “rotten tomatoes” you think it deserves.

Wing-nut: Dump The 9th Circuit, I Don’t Like The Way They Voted

6160800774_2cee6170bc_bLarry Pratt speaking at LPAC 2011 in Reno, Nevada.

Photo Credit: Flicker; Photographer: Gage Skidmore

A gun-butt organization is mad as hell at the 9th Circuit Court for their recent ruling on concealed weapon toting and they want the 9th Circuit eliminated. And no, I’m not talking about the NRA.

There’s been a lot of invective aimed at the NRA in the wake of the Orlando mass murders as well as the other mass shootings. And, quite frankly, it’s been well deserved. But, believe it or not, compared to Gun Owners of America (GOA), the NRA comes off like a bunch of liberal pansies.

According to Rational Wiki,

They [Gun Owners of America] not only oppose all new background checks (similar to the NRA), but would also like to see all existing background checks and other gun purchase restrictions removed. Furthermore, a major goal of the group is to also remove penalties for “straw purchases,” sales made to those who intend to sell or give the weapon to someone else who cannot pass a background check. As Larry Pratt put it, ‘There would be no straw purchasing if there were no limits on who can carry a gun.’

That brings us to the “wing-nut” in the headline, one Larry Pratt. He’s the co-founder and Executive Director of GOA.

The Southern Poverty Law Center‘s profile on Larry, describes him thusly,

Larry Pratt stands at the intersection of guns and Jesus, lobbying for absolutely unrestricted distribution of firearms while advocating a theocratic society based upon Old Testament civil and religious laws. A pivotal figure in the rise of right-wing militia, or “Patriot,” groups, he spoke at the notorious 1992 “Gathering of Christian Men” in Estes Park, Colo., where 160 neo-Nazis, Klan members, anti-Semitic Christian Identity adherents and others arguably laid the groundwork for the militia movement that would explode in 1994. He believes that white Christians must arm themselves for self-protection in the inevitable social implosions and riots that are soon to come.

Among some of Loony Larry’s oral-fecal emanations:

  • We are looking at a major assault on the right to keep and bear arms, and it is kind of reminiscent of Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia, where they used doctors as part of their torture routines and got people sent to the camps for improvement of their mental health.
    —”Talk to Solomon Show,” 2013
  • While the United States has forgotten its success in this area, other countries have rediscovered them. It is time that the United States return to reliance on an armed people. There is no acceptable alternative.
    Armed People Victorious (comparing militias during the American revolution to death squads in Guatemala), 1990
  • The right to keep and bear arms is just as important today as when the Bill of Rights was drafted. The right to keep and bear arms will be important until Christ comes again, because until then, people will be sinful. Crooks will steal, and murderers will kill, and government officials will tyrannize. The common thread is man presuming to make himself into a God.
    —”Tools of Biblical Resistance,” 1983

At this point, I think you get the general idea of the mind(?) set of the man.

He’s inserting himself in the news again because he’s upset that the 9th Circuit Court ruled that the 2nd Amendment doesn’t give citizens the right to carry concealed guns in public. In fact, he’s so mad that he wants the court abolished!

Last Friday, he showed up on “Liberty Roundtable” and called the judges “King George clones” and claimed they were responsible for “the destruction of the Second Amendment.” Oh, and the revolutionary war was the response when “King George came for the guns.

But, not to worry, Loony Larry already done thunk up a solution to the problem: Courts cost money and Congress holds the purse.

It can simply say that in the Ninth Circuit or any federal court, questions of concealed carry may not be considered, period, paragraph, and no funds will be available for such consideration. Takes it off the table right there. They could also — and I might even prefer — to remove that jurisdiction from the courts.

And, if that doesn’t do the trick,

The only court that is constitutional, that must exist, that must be able to operate, is the Supreme Court. If Congress decided that they actually stood for something, they could tell the Ninth Circuit, ‘You’re the former Ninth Circuit, we’ve decided we can do without you. You guys make life so difficult, it’s gonna be better without you. Buh-bye.’

For a “patriot,” he sure don’t know diddly about how the U.S. government works, do he?

 

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore Suspended Over Gay Marriage Opposition

maxresdefault-3Alabama Chief Justice, Roy Moore, who has been long known for his opinion that his version of Khristianity trumps the Constitution has been charged with six counts of ethics violations because of his actions against marriage equality.

  1. Violation of the Alabama Canon of Judicial Ethics, for disregarding a federal injunction.
  2. Violation of the Alabama Canon of Judicial Ethics, for demonstrated unwillingness to follow clear law.
  3. Violation of the Alabama Canon of Judicial Ethics, for abuse of administrative authority.
  4. Violation of the Alabama Canon of Judicial Ethics, for substituting his judgement for the judgement of the judgement of the entire Alabama Supreme Court, including failure to abstain from public comment about a pending proceeding in his own court.
  5. Violation of the Alabama Canon of Judicial Ethics, for interference with legal process and remedies in the United States District Court and/or Alabama Supreme Court related to proceedings in which Alabama probate judges were involved.
  6. Violation of the Alabama Canon of Judicial Ethics, for failure to recuse himself from pending proceedings in the Alabama Supreme Court after making public comment and placing his impartiality into question.

The charges resulted from a complaint filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, (SPLC).

In January, after SCOTUS decision on marriage equality in Obergefell v. Hodges, Moore issued an order to lower court judges, blocking the granting of marriage licenses to same-sex couples, stating,

Until further decision by the Alabama Supreme Court, the existing orders of the Alabama Supreme Court that Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act remain in full force and effect.

Last evening (05/06/16), after the charges were released, SPLC President Richard Cohen stated,

He is such an egomaniac and such a religious zealot that he thinks he can ignore court orders with impunity. For the sake of our state, he should be kicked out of office.

Moore responded to the charges by claiming,

The Judicial Inquiry Commission has no authority over the administrative orders of the chief justice of Alabama or the legal injunctions of the Alabama Supreme Court prohibiting probate judges from issuing same-sex marriage licenses.

As Moore’s own history shows, they most certainly do!

This is not the first time, Moore has been suspended from his duties. In a previous stint as Alabama Chief Justice, Moore commissioned a monument with two large carved tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments for the Alabama Supreme Court Building. At the dedication, he declared,

Today a cry has gone out across our land for the acknowledgment of that God upon whom this nation and our laws were founded….May this day mark the restoration of the moral foundation of law to our people and the return to the knowledge of God in our land.

Two months later, the ACLU of Alabama, Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the Southern Poverty Law Center filed a suit to have the monument be removed because it “sends a message to all who enter the State Judicial Building that the government encourages and endorses the practice of religion in general and Judeo-Christianity in particular.

Moore lost the suit and the appeal that followed. The judge had ruled that the monument was unconstitutional because it violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Moore was given until August 20, 2003 to remove it.

On the 14th of August, Moore stated that he was going to disobey the removal order. As of the 20th, as per the removal order, the state of Alabama was fined $5,000 a day. On the 21st, the other eight judges on the Alabama Supreme Court overruled Moore and ordered the monument removed.

On the 22nd, the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) filed a complaint with the Alabama Court of the Judiciary (COJ). The complaint resulted in the suspension of Moore from the Chief Justice position until a hearing could be held.

The hearing was held on November 12th, 2003. During the hearing, Moore reiterated his statement that he would defy any ruling requiring the monument’s removal.

The next day, the COJ ruled that “Chief Justice Moore has violated the Alabama Canons of Judicial Ethics as alleged by the JIC in its complaint.” Due to his continued intransigence, the COJ decided that “under these circumstances, there is no penalty short of removal from office that would resolve this issue.” Moore was immediately removed from office.

Is A Nevada Lawmaker Endorsing Killing Cops?

FioreGunCops-1024x575Michele Fiore is a well-known “gun-boob,” but claiming that killing cops is ok?

For those of you who haven’t had the displeasure of meeting Ms Fiore, a bit of background is in order. Ms Fiore is the Assemblywoman representing the folks around NW Loss Wages, Nevada. (How well, is a matter for her constituents to decide.)PostCards_6x9_CS

Now, bear in mind that this is the state that so generously shared such political filberts as Sue (Pay your doctor with a chicken) Lowden and Sharron (2nd Amendment Remedy) Angle.

I first ran across this Sarah Palin/Michele Bachmann mashup a little over a year ago when I wrote a post about her incredible discovery of the cause and cure of cancer. It seems medical researchers have been wasting their time and a lot of money when the cause is simple and the cure is cheap.

If you have cancer, which I believe is a fungus, and we can put a pic line into your body and we’re flushing with, say, salt water, sodium cardonate ([sic] through that line and flushing out the fungus. These are some procedures that are not FDA-approved in America that are very inexpensive, cost-effective.

(For you non chemistry majors, sodium carbonate (Na2CO3) is commonly called “washing soda.” It’s used as a water softener.)

She’s also come up with a cure for the raging pimp problems this country is facing.

Instead of warm and fuzzy stickers and extended jail sentences why aren’t you serious about the sex offenders these pimps, come with the castration bill, come with a bill that will stop people in their tracks. You know it, like you want to get serious about stopping sex trafficking, so let’s get a serious bill before us.

And, she has graciously shared her infantile wisdom on the cure for campus rapes – ARMED COEDS!

If these young, hot little girls on campus have a firearm, I wonder how many men will want to assault them. The sexual assaults that are occurring would go down once these sexual predators get a bullet in their head.

Oh, and I probably should mention that she’s a Bundy family fan. She was a supporter of Cliven Bundy in his fight to keep from paying $1,000,000 in fees for grazing rights on government land, which led to the Bundy Ranch Standoff (aka the “Battle of Bunkerville“).

And, she generously offered to ride along and comfort the Bundy boys when they were on their way to Portland’s “Iron Bar Inn” after their occupation of the Oregon wildlife refuge.

After she got back down to Nevada, she explained to the “Las Vegas Sun” that she didn’t see what the big deal was, the refuge occupiers were just camping out. She also told the “Sun” that if provoked, taking up arms against the government was perfectly acceptable.

If the government is going to point a gun at me, I’m going to point one right back. If you’re going to shoot me, I’m going to shoot you back.

Then, last week, in an interview for Las Vegas TV station KLAS-8, she doubled down on that last statement.

When asked by the station’s Steve Sebelius if she thought the 2nd Amendment gives you the right to point a gun at a “duly authorized law enforcement officer who is just out there doing his job.” she replied,

I would never ever point my firearm at anyone, including an officer of the law, unless they pointed their firearm at me. But, once you point your firearm at me, I’m sorry, then it becomes self-defense. Whether you’re a stranger, a bad guy, or an officer, and you point your gun at me and you’re gonna shoot me and I have to decide whether it’s my life or your life, I choose my life.

In parting, I’ll leave you with some good news (if you’re an ammosexual). Michele is running for Congress. Fiore_logoStay tuned!
