Feedback and Notes

Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

Christian Activist: God will Curse Children, Grandchildren of Trump Critics

Christian activist claims Trump is chosen by God, and that those who oppose Trump will be cursed, as will be their children and their grandchildren.

Appearing on “The Jim Bakker Show” earlier this week, conservative activist and pro-Trump “Christian leader” Mary Colbert issued a dire warning to all those who oppose or criticize President Trump. Referring to Trump as “the chosen one of God,” Colbert declared:

… if you come against the chosen one of God, you are bringing upon you and your children and your children’s children curses like you have never seen.

The following is an extended excerpt from Colbert’s remarks via Right Wing Watch:

It’s not that Donald Trump is all that perfect of a guy. We all know he’s not. And we know that he’s not necessarily perfect in every way that we would like. That’s not how God works. He works through the ones he chooses. We don’t choose them. All we have to do is recognize them and when you recognize a chosen one and you have the discernment to know that they’ve been chosen and know that that’s the will of God, then your life will be blessed. And if you come against the chosen one of God, you are bringing upon you and your children and your children’s children curses like you have never seen. It puts a holy fear in me.

Wow.

To say that Donald Trump is not “ all that perfect of a guy,” is quite an understatement.

To go on to claim that God will curse not only Trump’s opponents, but the children and grandchildren of Trump’s opponents, is beyond ludicrous.

Bottom line: To declare that “God has chosen” Trump, is an insult to the intelligence of a God that does not exist; yet to believe in a God that would damn the innocent for the sins of their parents and their grandparents, now that is truly twisted.

LA Times Editorial.

Our Dishonest President

Part I of VI.

Let it go if you don't want to read it.



It was no secret during the campaign that Donald Trump was a narcissist and a demagogue who used fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters. The Times called him unprepared and unsuited for the job he was seeking, and said his election would be a “catastrophe.”

Still, nothing prepared us for the magnitude of this train wreck. Like millions of other Americans, we clung to a slim hope that the new president would turn out to be all noise and bluster, or that the people around him in the White House would act as a check on his worst instincts, or that he would be sobered and transformed by the awesome responsibilities of office.

Instead, seventy-some days in — and with about 1,400 to go before his term is completed — it is increasingly clear that those hopes were misplaced.

In a matter of weeks, President Trump has taken dozens of real-life steps that, if they are not reversed, will rip families apart, foul rivers and pollute the air, intensify the calamitous effects of climate change and profoundly weaken the system of American public education for all.

His attempt to de-insure millions of people who had finally received healthcare coverage and, along the way, enact a massive transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich has been put on hold for the moment. But he is proceeding with his efforts to defang the government’s regulatory agencies and bloat the Pentagon’s budget even as he supposedly retreats from the global stage....


Call us with your thoughts

We want to hear what you think of this series. Leave us a voicemail at 951-39-HeyLA.


Although his policies are, for the most part, variations on classic Republican positions (many of which would have been undertaken by a President Ted Cruz or a President Marco Rubio), they become far more dangerous in the hands of this imprudent and erratic man.

St Petersburg metro explosion kills 11 in Russia

Eleven people have been killed and 45 injured in an explosion between two underground stations in St Petersburg.

The head of Russia's National Anti-Terrorist Committee said the blast hit a train between Sennaya Ploshchad and Tekhnologichesky Institut stations.

The committee said an explosive device was later found and made safe at another station nearby.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in a Facebook post that the explosion was a "terrorist attack".

An anti-terror investigation has been opened, but other possible causes are being investigated.

Sadistic photograph that may meet the approval of conservatives view of art.

Joe Jessop (88) is an elder of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS). In Hildale, Utah, he has tried to fulfill his duty of building up his "celestial family" of 5 wives and 46 children, and 239 grandchildren.

All great nations have public art.

The Catholic League and many conservatives will leave the U.S. off the list of great nations while they financially strangle Elmo, Big Bird, Downton Abbey along with theater and music. 

Don't conservatives view human expression and knowledge a form of Original sin and therefore "Evil?"

People Don't Want to Come to Trump's America: The 'Trump Slump' in ...

Well, that didn’t take long. People around the world have taken a look at Donald Trump and decided his America is not a place they want to visit. The result has been labeled the “Trump Slump,” a drop in international tourism that’s predicted to cost the United States more than $7 billion. Experts across the travel industry have sounded the alarm that the Trump presidency, already destructive on so many fronts, may also do serious financial damage to the country’s $250 billion tourism sector.

 

Frommer’s, a prominent travel guide, notes that “the prestigious Travel Weekly magazine (as close to an 'official' travel publication as they come) has set the decline in foreign tourism at 6.8 percent” for this year. ForwardKeys, which crunches travel numbers, points to a 6.5 percent downturn in international travel to the U.S. in the week after Trump attempted to issue the Muslim travel ban in January. During the same period, the company found reservations for U.S.-bound flights from Western Europe fell 14 percent and plunged 38 percent from across the Middle East. And a survey released this month by the Global Business Travel Association concluded “45 percent of European business travel professionals say they are less likely to schedule meetings or events in the U.S.,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

The numbers offer evidence that Trump has turned off potential visitors from around the world. The resounding message of Trump’s “America First” stance, his obsession with the Mexico border wall, his anti-immigrant and anti-refugee policies, his Muslim ban, and his rudeness to longstanding allies is that America is inhospitable to foreigners. Predictably, international travelers are opting to stay away—and that includes the European ones that Trump and his supporters are totally cool with.
