Bernie Sanders disagrees with Jesus

Originally posted at American Thinker

In the Gospel of John, Chapter 3, verse 18, Jesus tells the Pharisee Nicodemus, “Whoever believes in [the Son] is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”

Former presidential candidate and junior senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders doesn’t share Jesus’s point of view and is peeved because Russell T. Vought, Donald Trump’s nominee for deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), does.

In a 2016 article entitled “Wheaton College and the Preservation of Theological Clarity,” Vought expressed the opinion that the Christian college was justified in firing their first female African-American tenured professor, Larycia Hawkins, for sympathizing with Islam and for posing on Facebook dressed in a hijab.

In defense of Wheaton’s decision, Vought wrote that “Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ his Son, and they stand condemned.”

At Vought’s Senate Budget Committee confirmation hearing, during introductory remarks, a visibly annoyed Sanders directed his comments toward the nominee while pontificating about “[t]his country, since its inception, [having] struggled, sometimes with great pain, to overcome discrimination of all forms.”  Sanders stressed, “We must not go backward.”

Sorry, but Bernie the Socialist is the last person who should be sermonizing about the inception of a nation whose foundational philosophies are diametrically opposed to everything he espouses.

Moreover, rather than refer to Article VI, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution as his guide, which says that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States,” Bernie chose instead to “overcome… all forms of discrimination” by verbally scourging a Christian.

For denying that God is government and that salvation comes from the state, Vought probably comes off to intolerant Sanders as a political heretic.  Meanwhile, despite the Quran (3:56) saying, “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter,” Bernie continues to support Minnesota Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison to head the DNC.

Sounding like Pontius Pilate interrogating Jesus, the liberal senator applied a religious litmus test to the president’s nominee by challenging Vought’s belief in basic Christian theology, asking:

I don’t know how many Muslims there are in America, I really don’t know, probably a couple million. Are you suggesting that all of those people stand condemned? What about Jews? Do they stand condemned too?

Sanders continued probing: “Do you believe that statement is Islamophobic?”  Vought replied, “Absolutely not, Senator.  I’m a Christian, and I believe in a Christian set of principles based on my faith.”

Bernie is a millionaire socialist who publicly embraces sharing the wealth while privately practicing the religion of Marxism by vacationing in a $600,000 summer home.  That’s why Vought’s unwavering adherence to a “set of principles” is hard for Bernie to grasp.

In an attempt to defend his position, Vought said, “As a Christian, I believe that all individuals are made in the image of God and are worthy of dignity and respect, regardless of their religious beliefs.”

The irony here is that Vought was explaining his belief to a pro-abortion advocate who demands a standard from Vought on behalf of Muslims that the religion of liberalism denies the unborn.

However, based on Bernie’s boorishness, apparently, liberals are certified to be disrespectful toward anyone who disagrees with progressivism.  That authorization may be why Sanders felt comfortable interrupting Vought to say, “And do you think your statement that you put in that publication… do you think that’s respectful of other religions?”

Vought answered that he wrote the post as an alumnus of Wheaton College, which “has a statement of faith that speaks clearly with regard to the centrality of Jesus Christ in salvation.”

In response, Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) chimed in and laid bare the left’s hypocrisy concerning truth being relative when he admonished Bernie by saying: “I hope that we are not questioning the faith of others, and how they interpret their faith to themselves.”

Then, by chastising Vought for being a biblical purist, versus a vacillator like himself, Democrat senator from Maryland Chris Van Hollen exposed the schizophrenic left’s truth-being-relative hypocrisy even more.  The Maryland senator attested that “I’m a Christian, but part of being a Christian, in my view, is recognizing that there are lots of ways that people can pursue their God.”

If what Chris “in my view” Van Hollen says is true, then Vought’s interpretation of the Bible, regardless of how repugnant it is to Mr. Sanders, shouldn’t be a problem – should it?

On behalf of the senator, following the contentious hearing, a spokesperson delivered the following statement:

In a democratic society, founded on the principle of religious freedom, we can all disagree over issues, but racism and bigotry – condemning an entire group of people because of their faith – cannot be part of any public policy.

The nomination of a candidate like Vought, “who has expressed such strong Islamaphobic language,” the statement said, “is simply unacceptable.”

Suffice it to say that our nation’s founding principle of religious freedom did not equate tolerance with acceptance of things like atheism, Native American shamanism, paganism, or “Mahometanism.”  In fact, in 1779, George Washington delivered a speech that expressed to Delaware Indian chiefs his theological convictions:

You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are. Congress will do everything they can to assist you in this wise intention.

Therefore, if George Washington were running for deputy director of the OMB, Bernie Sanders would accuse him of being a phobic-racist-bigot and then say, “I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about.  I will vote no.”

 

Is Megyn the Man-Eater Receiving Her Just Reward?

Originally posted at American Thinker

Like a Black Widow spider, infotainment sensation Megyn Kelly has advanced both her personal and career life sniffing out testosterone and then feeding off male prey.

Prior to her meteoric rise to fame, Megyn was married to an anesthesiologist named David Kendall.  Mr. Kendall said that on the day the couple married, the priest counseled Megyn on the importance of  ‘taking care of her husband.’ Megyn responded to the advice by asking, “What about him taking care of his wife?”

The ambitious celebrity enhanced her résumé, transforming from a rookie news anchor into a self-impressed show boater with the same self-regard.

Unlike the deadly arachnoid, Megyn doesn’t need to physically mate with her prey to get what she needs before the poison flows, but she openly exploits her female sexuality.

Nightly, on The Kelly File, the commentator showcased her legs under a glass-top table.

As her hubris grew, Megyn endeavored to act cutesy on camera and restyled her hair into an edgy updated version of Sly Stallone’s 1980’s love interest, Brigitte Nielsen.

 

To cover the Republican National Convention, Megyn showed up in a spaghetti strap dress.

Then, after being criticized, she defended her choice of beachwear by saying,  “women can be smart and feminine at the same time.”

Four years after that wedding ceremony, the woman who wanted a wife sought a better way to get men to provide for her needs, something she apparently felt neither a husband nor a 10-year career in the legal profession was delivering.  Megyn divorced David, left her job as an attorney, and latched onto a guy named Bill Lord, who gave the fledgling news personality her first break at an ABC affiliate in Washington DC.

From there, Kelly advanced by moving on to well-respected television journalist Brit Hume, who became her mentor.  In response to his wife Kim’s urging, a dutiful Hume delivered Megyn’s audition tape to the late Chairman and CEO of Fox News, Roger Ailes.  Ailes responded by creating a spot for Kelly and putting her on the air.

In 2014, Megyn told Business Insider “My boss, Roger Ailes, has been a huge inspiration.”  Yet two years later, in her 2016 autobiography, Settle for More, Megyn expressed thanks to that inspirational boss by revealing that Ailes offered to advance her career in “exchange for sexual favors.”  Mr. Ailes  denied Megyn Kelly’s allegations, calling them pure fiction.

And Megyn certainly did advance.

Maybe David Kendall could provide insight as to why his ex-wife, who once falsely implied he committed adultery, has a propensity to advance her interests via false accusations.

Nonetheless, in addition seeking out powerful men do her bidding,

Meanwhile, back at Fox News, Megyn’s bevy of manservants included a kindhearted mentor, a now-deceased boss, Bill O’Reilly, and a newer more compliant stay-at-home husband named Doug Brunt.

In addition to that short list, Megyn’s ladder to the top was soon notched with notable and notorious male names like Josh Duggar, Bill Ayers, Michael Moore, and Mark McKinnon of Showtime’s Political Circus.  McKinnon is the guy in the Stetson who enjoyed sitting on the other side of Megyn’s  see-through desk.

Among those the news anchor allegedly “demolished” to advance her career is radio talk show host Mike Gallagher, Fox News political consultant Karl Rove, and psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow.  At one point, Megyn was feeling so feisty she attempted to go brain cell-to-brain cell with Newt Gingrich – that was a smack down Megyn should have avoided.

It was Kelly who once said, “Television is just like typing — there’s no way to get better without doing it a lot, over and over,” which apparently also holds true for chewing up and spitting out men.

Even still, to date, Kelly’s most daring man-scapade took place at the first Republican presidential debate when, in an attempt to portray him as a womanizer, Megyn posed an in-your-face “temperament” question to candidate Donald Trump.  By depicting Trump in a negative light, in her mind, the news anchor had managed to accomplish more for her career in a few minutes of verbal abuse than Hume, Ailes, and O’Reilly were able to deliver in 12-years.

As a result of the Trump hysteria that followed, the Murdoch brothers negotiated a $20-million a year contract renewal to keep Kelly at Fox.  Rather than accept the offer, Megyn dissociated herself from the cable news giant and got Andrew Lack, the chairman of NBC’s news division, to convince NBC to shell out between 15 and 20 million.

Sadly for her, the woman who thought she would strut in and own the peacock is now finding it more difficult to employ the same methods at NBC that worked so well for her at Fox News.

For example, during the début of her new show, “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly,” for a state dinner at Konstantin Palace in St. Petersburg Megyn showed up in a thigh-high slit skirt and stiletto heels.  Russian President Vladimir Putin appeared less than impressed with both the outfit and her interviewing skills.

Not to be deterred by the abysmal ratings that followed the Putin premiere, Megyn segued from a Russian president to a controversial – love him or hate him – conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.  Jones anticipated Megyn was setting him up.  So, instead of being distracted by blonde curls and false eyelashes, Jones focused on secretly taping both the actual and pre-interview discussions.

When the parents of Sandy Hook victims found out about the show’s topic, advertisers threatened to boycott NBC for agreeing to allow Kelly to give credibility to a man who once said the mass shooting a “hoax.”  Megyn responded to the outcry by using it as an opportunity to diss Jones and tie him and his  “outrageous conspiracy theories” to Donald Trump.

Alex then ‘trumped’ Kelly by leaking a tape of Megyn sounding more flirtatious toward Jones than ‘personally revolted.’

In the end, Megyn ‘blowhards beware’ Kelly has worked very hard mastering the craft of elevating herself at the expense of men.  Now, after all the “exploitation and impunity” Kelly enjoyed at Fox, in her first two weeks at NBC, Megyn is finally receiving a just reward for the man-eating methods she’s employed making a name for herself.

Kathy Griffin blames the victim

Originally posted at American Thinker

Liberal comedienne Kathy Griffin abhors Donald Trump.  To make that point, the D-list provocateur decided to rabble-rouse a bit by hiring an edgy photojournalist to take pictures of her holding a likeness of the commander-in-chief’s severed head.

When Donald Trump, the object of her harassment, chose to express his opinion about Griffin’s twisted publicity stunt, the comic responded by accusing the victim of misogyny.  Kathy Griffin made a threat against the president, and now, after suffering the consequences of a joke gone badly, the liberal woman is looking for an excuse to blame the victim.

In other words, Kathy Griffin slept with the devil, and now she wants to abort the spawn she’s conceived by saying she was a victim of political rape.

At a highly publicized press conference, Kathy Griffin, the daughter of a white man, pulled the pink pussy hat card by accusing “a bunch of white guys [of] trying to silence [her].”  Griffin maintained that if she were a “white man” (like Planned Parenthood executives), she’d be able to laugh about decapitated bodies and no one would care.

Ms. Griffin’s defense for paying photographic homage to a terrorist group was to admit that she’s “[n]ot good at being appropriate.”

For that matter, neither is ISIS!

That’s why, unlike her mentors, rather than have the courage of her convictions, Griffin chose to indict “[t]he president and his grown children and the first lady [for] personally trying to ruin [her] life forever.”

Griffin saying Donald Trump is a “bully” for reacting negatively to being threatened with decapitation is like Hillary Clinton telling anyone who will listen – for $250K a pop – that Putin and Macedonia cost her the election.

Wait!  It gets better.

At the press conference, Kathy Griffin’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, the daughter of famous sexual harassment bottom-feeder, Gloria Allred, sneered when asked about the report that young Barron Trump was upset when he saw the gory image of his father.  Bloom said, “We don’t know that.  You’re assuming that everything that Trump says is true, and in fact, we know that everything Trump says is false.”

So, according to Lisa Bloom, Kathy Griffin’s beheading stunt is about Trump lying?

How can people with the imagination to dream up Trump being in cahoots with the Russians scoff at the idea that a blood-drenched replica of his dad’s head would spook an 11-year-old boy?

Notwithstanding the irreverent disregard for children, how does Kathy Griffin, a woman who regularly shills for the #shoutyourabortion crowd, have the audacity to appear at a press conference whimpering like an infant because she’s hurt and frightened?

Kathy Griffin attempted, albeit poorly, to be a firebrand, but when the fire turned around and branded her on the rear end, she crumbled into a sniveling mound of “poor me” – which proves that liberals sure can dish out the excruciating pain.  However, when it’s their turn to suffer the consequences of their own actions, such disher-outers can’t take even a smidgeon of what they impose on the defenseless.

Kathy Griffin loves to wave the flag for the right to dismember unborn babies but cries when someone says or does something that makes her feel bad?  Kathy’s reaction can be likened to an executioner complaining because he got a splinter from gripping the wooden handle of his ax.

Nonetheless, in addition to being just plain loathsome, Griffin told gullible reporters that the bloody head was her creative reaction to the comment Trump made to Megyn Kelly about “blood coming out of her wherever.”  Does Kathy “CNN” Griffin really expect the “what do we look stupid” public to believe that her left-wing photo-shoot paid homage to a former Fox News diva?

Unsure about what she meant when she mentioned her “career,” Griffin told the press that she fanaticized about decapitating President Trump because he “broke her.”  More appropriately, this little sideshow may be more about Kathy not wanting to end up broke than it is about Donald Trump “breaking her.”

Either way, since threatening the life of a sitting president, Kathy Griffin says she has received “detailed and specific” death threats from someone other than herself.  One such blow came from CNN, who exterminated her New Year’s Eve spot with Anderson Cooper, and another came in the form of pooping stool Squatty Potty dumping Kathy’s gig.

As a result of her uncontrollable urge to present decapitation imagery, Griffin is now despondent because, like a corpse without a head, she doesn’t expect her sorry excuse for a career to recover.

Then again, maybe the Kathy Griffin press conference was just the comedienne’s way of doing what she does best when she swears, “I just want to make people laugh.”

After all, it is kind of funny to hear that holding up a severed head made “everyone turn on her.”  It is also amusing when a joker, who built her career on making vile sexual references, refers to Donald Trump with a double entendre such as, “I am not laying [sic] down for this guy.”

Better than that, how about a person currently under investigation by the Secret Service concluding that “[t]hey are using me as the shining object so no one talks about his FBI investigation”?

After the mock decapitation of a man whose style is “frankly an acquired taste,” who wouldn’t giggle hearing the one who performed the amputation defend the indefensible by admitting, “I am barely an acquired taste”?

Griffin’s justification for her behavior is that she was just being herself?  Isn’t that exactly what Trump is guilty of – being himself?  And so an admitted inappropriate entertainer takes a photo holding the head of someone a lot like herself?

After standing by the apology she felt she didn’t need to make, Griffin said of Trump, “I am going to make fun of him more now.”

With that in mind, maybe next, just for laughs, Kathy Griffin will star in a video displaying President Donald J. Trump tied to log headed for a buzz saw.  Then, instead of taking responsibility for pretending to assassinate the president a second time, Kathy Griffin can inspire sympathy by claiming she is “broken” over Trump leaving the Paris Accord.

OBAMA: Touring The World For The Praise He Craves

Originally posted at Clash Daily

Based on a history of verifiable narcissism, it’s probably fair to speculate that the 44th president’s impetus to hog the limelight is deeply rooted in his inability to deal with the rejection he’s been plagued with since Donald Trump was elected.

With that in mind, Obama’s ailing self-image has the best chance of accessing the balm of approval amongst friends. That’s why, just like he did during his presidency when travelling to Muslim countries to exalt Islam, Obama gravitates toward countries whose political viewpoint aligns with his own.

To soothe his ego, Barack seeks out choirs to preach to and audiences who believe he knows best. Apparently, the former president imagines his own legacy is exalted by insults, manipulating opinion, demanding worship, and disputing everything the current president says.

Obama’s pursuit of relevancy started in Milan Italy, at the Seeds&Chips Global Food Innovation Summit. It was there that the socialistic sage contributed to the event by planting seeds of discord and chipping away at Trump’s reputation. Obama’s advice to the agreeable was to vote for candidates who think like himself, lest “[They] get the politicians [they] deserve.”

Next, he was off to Germany.

At Brandenburg Gate “dear Barack” met up with the woman he spied on, Angela Merkel. In the company of like-minded colleagues, Barry soaked his wounded ego in the applause of social welfare devotees, globalists, refugees, and terrorists who took a break from raping and pillaging to cheer on a friend.

From there Barack headed north to Scotland. Instead of showing solidarity by golfing at Trump International Gold Links in Balmedie, Obama displayed his scrawny legs at the Old Course at St Andrews. Then, at a charity event attended by Trump-haters like First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, author JK Rowling and musician Annie Lennox, Obama assured a room full of fellow socialists that Scotland “has a lot to offer the world.”

Obama’s most recent seditious stop was closer to home.

To the delight of an audience of 6,000 Canadian enthusiasts, without uttering his name, the ex-president attempted to damage the integrity of the current president.

Rather than furthering North American unity, at an event hosted by the Montreal Board of Trade, Obama, whose politics exclude anyone who disagrees with him, expressed concern about Trump’s “extreme nationalism and xenophobia and politics of us-versus-them.”

To establish himself as the only person qualified enough to lead a divided world, Obama used the same language he used when community organizing a nation he worked hard to divide.

Warning Canadians to guard against fear and uncertainty, the former POTUS suggested Trump “because of fear and uncertainty” was willing to “violate our principals.”

By “our” Obama meant those who agree with Obama.

Then, to elevate the “Hope and Change” brand, America’s most disruptive forward-thinker told the audience in Montreal that “In times of disruption we may go backward instead of forward. We’re going to have to replace fear with hope.”

Leaving out the alternative facts, the guy who swore Americans could keep their doctor and that Benghazi resulted from a Youtube video said:

” And we’re in an environment where we are only accepting information that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the facts that we receive. And evidence and reason and logic.

Wasn’t it Barack Obama who recommended that “… it is time to focus on nation-building here at home”? Now he slams the “America first” mentality by suggesting, “We have to help other countries with their own development?”

By portraying the current commander in chief as a man in “a search for certainty and control,” the former POTUS implied that, rather than establish American exceptionalism, via “isolationism or nationalism,” Trump seeks to “roll back rights.”

By mentioning “communities and tribes” and by implying that Trump is in the process of convincing Americans to “retreat from obligations beyond our borders”, to steer the discussion, Obama instilled the sort of fear he supposedly rejects.

Getting applause from those who want anti-democratic global forces to control the planet must have made the irrelevant one feel relevant. Obama even argued that if globalists are not in control, the result could be “intolerance and tribalism and organizing … along ethnic lines.”

Aren’t “intolerance and tribalism and organizing … along ethnic lines” exactly the sort of divisions Obama generated during his tenure as president?

Tipping his community organizer hand, Obama, whose agenda furthered itself with disruption, told the crowd:

The disruptions that are happening globally are going to continue to accelerate. And what’s more, in an age of instance information, where TV and Twitter can feed us a steady stream of bad news – and sometimes fake news – it can seem like the international order that we’ve created is being constantly tested, and that the center may not hold.

Secretly, Barack Obama probably hopes international order doesn’t hold so that he and his band of globalists have an excuse to rush in and save the day!

Similar to how he sold Obamacare as being compatible with capitalism, Obama who is adept at making lies sound factual told the Canadian crowd, “We have shown that environmental sustainability and economic progress are not contradictory, but are complementary.” Who is “we”?

Using clever wordplay to wring love from the audience, Obama thrilled the crowd when he said that, “Even with the temporary absence of American leadership… [the Paris Accord] … still gives our children a fighting chance.”

Wait! Was Barack Obama suggesting that without his leadership all children join the unborn in not having a fighting chance?

Nevertheless, the “us versus them” ex-president suggested that the current president has a “What’s good for me and my immediate people is all that matters. Everybody else is on their own” attitude.

Look who’s talking!

And so, whether in Europe, Canada, or in the company of rich friends, Barack Obama has proven once again that his desperate efforts to vindicate his legacy are nothing more than an expression of his own dark thoughts, intentions, and spirit.

DISGUSTING: From Planned Parenthood To Kathy Griffin — Are Decapitated Heads Now Fodder for Jokes?

Originally posted at CLASH Daily

Could it be that all the beheading ISIS does is merely the group’s attempt to inject laughter into a dour world? To prove that point, recently, on a three-minute Center for Medical Progress video, a Planned Parenthood of Michigan medical director flippantly said that pro-choice proponents should just admit that abortion is murder.

Now, how funny is that?

Medical director, Lisa Harris not only has the courage of her convictions, much like Jihadi Johnand youthful Mexican assassin, El Ponchis, this is a woman with a great sense of humor.

For her opening monolog, Harris warmed up the crowd by recommending that the best way to deal with those who oppose abortion is to make light of the violence. On the video, Harris joked around saying, “Let’s just give them all the violence. It’s a person. It’s killing. Let’s just give them all that.”

Yes, lets!

Then, further along in her slapstick routine, Harris kidded about trying to pull the severed head of an aborted baby out of its mother’s womb. Inserting levity into the abortion process, Harris jested about “The heads that get stuck that we can’t get out…[and] the hemorrhages that we manage.”

In other words, at Planned Parenthood amputated heads and profuse bleeding are fodder for laughing it up? Which proves, once again, that ISIS, abortion advocates, and now pro-choice comedians, are all on the same page when it comes to severed heads.

Take, for instance, irreverent comedian, Kathy Griffin.

In addition to telling Jesus to “suck it”, and saying that her Emmy is her God, Kathy appeared in a pro-abortion video with Cher to support the re-election of hilariously-witty-abortion-proponent Barack Obama. Then, in the height of the oh-so-funny #shoutyourabortion craze, Kathy tweeted approbations to a woman who had the courage to brag about relegating her offspring to a red biohazard bag.

More recently Kathy, who is all about the hilarity of headless corpses, posed for an amusing “Love Trumps Hate” photo with edgy photographer Tyler Shields. In her outstretched arm, the knee-slapping, buttoned-up Kathy held what looked like Donald Trump’s decapitated blood-soaked head.

Griffin’s homage to ISIS included dampening Trump’s blond hair with blood in a color that matched her own carrot-top red. The picture of Kathy is so uproariously funny it is sure to have Griffin-loving/Trump-hating fans absolutely rolling in the aisles.

During the photo shoot it is purported Griffin told Tyler that after the humorous assassination threat against a sitting president was released, to avoid prison, the comedy team might need to move to Mexico, where rib-tickling things like severing heads is a national past time.

And so, despite Kathy Griffin’s hollow apology where she blamed poor judgment on being a comic in search of good material, it’s final; ISIS, Planned Parenthood, and pro-choice comedians all think beheading is giggle-worthy.

With that in mind, although Americans are usually up for a good joke, maybe there is cause for some concern. After all, if ISIS laughs about removing heads for religion reasons, Planned Parenthood for convenience sake, and liberal comedians on behalf of politics, how long will it be before the violent Trump resistance has a good belly laugh at the thought of decapitating anybody who disagrees with them?
