Original Article

Wattles are a-quiver within the mainstream religious hierarchy. President Donald John Trump visited a church. In their Greta Thunberg voices they demanded How Dare He! NBC reported, "Lawmakers, former elected officials and religious leaders voiced outrage at President Donald Trump after police used tear gas and flash bangs against peaceful protesters outside the White House to clear the crowd for Trump to do a photo-op at St. John's church on Monday evening. (Snip)The peaceful-by-day, arsonist-by-night protesters had tried to burn the church down the night before.

Comments:

Pelosi, Schumer…the usual suspects… (“wattles”…snicker)

So much outrage. Can liberals eat dinner or take a crap without feeling outrage? It seems to permeate their very existence.

I have no respect for any of them in the church or churches. Sorry but I see hypocrisy when there should be understanding. Many look down their noses at others who are not as holy as they are.

I quit going to church when the sermons became political instead of Biblical. The Episcopal Church is about 20 years from dying - most members are over 60 and single. There are almost no young people in it. The Presbyterian Church is going down the same road, although there are a few that can still attract members. Mainline protestant religions have been taken over by the liberals who, as we know, ruin everything they touch.

This has already happened to the Catholic Church. It started in the '60's - the next thing we knew, the Mass was in English, they were singing folk songs, Maryknoll nuns were hiding guns for Communist rebels, and Jesuit priests were hiding draft dodgers.

We don't need to leave the church, our schools, or anything else. We need to leave the Democrats behind. Why do we need all the cost, the misery, the failures, and grievances the Democrats represent? I prefer to push them out of leadership positions, into positions of silence, and go with winning. Democrats aren't even fit for staff positions, as they stab those ahead of them in the back.

So the Devastatingly Outraged Father took to the airwaves to trash my President. He judged my President's heart and faith. I kept waiting for his outrage aimed at his Jesuit brethren....you remember the Jesuits...they're the Head Little Boy Diddlers of the Church. So go pound sand, Faddah. Your indignation rings hollow.

Much like people didn't leave the Dem Party, they left US. People gave up on church because ministers didn't want to preach the gospel, they wanted money and airplanes.

Too many churches have become socialist. Harboring illegal aliens. Tolerating baby butchers in their midst. Pandering politically to dwindling congregations. Best to leave politics to the politicians and tend to matters that are not of this world..

Black Lives Matter DC Chapter Condemns

The official BlackLivesMatter DC chapter recently tweeted their disappointment in response to a mural stating “Black Lives Matter” painted on the street in front of the White House calling it “counter organizing” to their demands. “This is performative and a distraction from [Mayor Muriel Bowser’s] active counter organizing to our demands to decrease the police budget and invest in the community. Black Lives Matter means Defund the police,” they replied to a tweet by Rachel Chason, a Washington Post reporter. (Snip)Mayor Bowser, according to NBC4 Washington, renamed the street “Black Lives Matter Plaza” shortly after D.C. Department of Public Works crews and muralists completed the painting, which stretches across 16th Street.

A former Obama administration intelligence official who worked in both the Departments of State and Defense has guaranteed bail for a human rights lawyer accused of firebombing a police vehicle in New York City. The former official, Salmah Rizvi, told a judge the alleged firebomber is her "best friend." Rizvi, now an attorney at the D.C.-based law firm Ropes & Gray, helped secure the release of fellow lawyer Urooj Rahman by agreeing to be a suretor for her bail. That means Rizvi is liable for the full cost of the $250,000 bail if Rahman fails to obey the court's orders.

The death of George Floyd after an interaction with the Minneapolis Police Department has rocked the world and while everyone reading this believes that an officer that put his knee in the back of Floyd’s neck for close to nine minutes was the cause of death, the facts and evidence are anything but that. Now, before you quickly go the typical “you are justifying the murder” of Mr. Floyd, go ahead and take a step back. Our job here is to give you the facts and whether you want to believe it or not, many of the facts are either not reported or not yet known and that should be concerning to

Once you understand the larger objectives, everything becomes a sequence of predictable events. The term “community policing” has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda. If each community can determine the enforcement of law, then essentially all communities can eliminate the underlying law itself. Remove local enforcement of law and the local community can independently assemble a social structure separate from all other binding contracts that frame a larger societal compact.

George Floyd tested positive for coronavirus after he died, according to a Hennepin County autopsy report. The report says Floyd, 44, had first tested positive for COVID-19 back on April 3 and that traces of the virus “can persist for weeks after the onset and resolution of clinical disease.” The virus in Floyd, the report says, was “asymptomatic but persistent,” leading to the positive postmortem test.

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Wednesday he opposes using military forces for law enforcement in containing current street protests, tamping down threats from President Donald Trump, who had warned states he was willing to send troops to “dominate” the streets. Less than 48 hours after the president threatened to use the Insurrection Act of 1807 to contain protests if governors were not able to get a handle on unrest, Esper said it should be invoked in the United States “only in the most urgent and dire of situations.” He declared, “We are not in one of those situations now.”

As a place to live and work, Los Angeles was supposed to be a soft landing for the bracingly handsome new parents and their baby boy, and, in housing anyway, it seems to have been that, if as reported they seem to be ensconced in Tyler Perry's awe-inspiring mansion and its 17-acre grounds atop Beverly Hills. But Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have come in hard on this landing. In truth, Los Angeles is not an easy town even without the ambient chaos of the patchwork SARS-CoV-2 lockdown or the George Floyd protests, as generations of wannabe actors and auteurs who have come to seek fortune can attest.

Mr. President, you’ve taken step one: Declaring Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. That was a brilliant move. Now it’s time for step number two: Cut the head off the snake. We’ve got to move to aggressively cut off the funding of domestic terrorism. Those who provide funding are terrorists themselves. Who is providing the funding? There are many suspects. Suspect number one is globalist billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundation. It starts there. Is Soros guilty? That’s way above my pay grade. That’s why we need a global investigation. And indictments and a trial.

The president stoically held up a Bible upon arrival — an action that drew both outrage and criticism from progressives, celebrities, and media personalities.
