‘God’s Not Dead’ actor Kevin Sorbo laughingly tells Jews: ‘News bulletin: You did kill Jesus’

Making the rounds promoting the DVD release of his latest movie, God Is Not Dead, actor Kevin Sorbo ventured into touchy territory when he accused the Jews of killing Jesus Christ, reports Right Wing Watch.

In a phone interview with “Vocal Point” radio program host Jerry Newcombe, the former star of television’s Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, explained that the success of Mel Gibson’s 2004 film The Passion of the Christ, opened doors to other Christian-based films being made.

Initiating the coversation, Newcombe said, “I think Mel Gibson crashed a gate, in a very big way, 10 years ago.”

“Oh, he got attacked when he was shooting ‘The Passion’,” Sorbo agreed before continuing, “From the Jewish community, saying ‘look at the way you’re portraying us,’ I mean, I go, okay, news bulletin: you did kill Jesus.”

Sorbo then laughed, adding, “Come on!”

Quickly jumping in, Newcombe corrected Sorbo saying, “Well, they delivered him over to the Romans, right.”

“Exactly,” Sorbo agreed. “They did deliver him, so they had a hand in it. Um, and what did it do? A $30 million movie made $500 million, so Mel sort of had the last laugh there.”

Published

Very much a student of New Deal economics, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has often stressed that helping the unemployed during an economic downturn not only helps those who are out of work — it also benefits the economy on the whole. Krugman made that point many times during the Great Recession, and in a column published this week, the liberal economist warns that the “coronavirus recession of 2020” will become even worse if unemployed Americans don’t receive the help that they need.

‘Friday Night Massacre’ at US Postal Service as Postmaster General—a major Trump donor—ousts top officials

Published

Government watchdogs, Democratic lawmakers, and pro-democracy advocates declared it a "Friday Night Massacre" for the U.S. Postal Service after news broke in a classic end-of-the-week dump that Louis DeJoy—a major GOP donor to President Donald Trump and the recently appointed Postmaster General—had issued a sweeping overhaul of the agency, including the ouster of top executives from key posts and the reshuffling of more than two dozen other officials and operational managers.

According to the Washington Post:

‘Gullible’ Trump administration paid up to $500 million too much for these ventilators: investigators

Published

on

Citing “evidence of fraud, waste, and abuse,” a congressional subcommittee investigating the federal government’s purchase of $646.7 million worth of Philips ventilators has asked the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General to launch its own investigation of the deal.

The House subcommittee launched its review after ProPublica stories in March and April showed how a U.S. subsidiary of Royal Philips N.V. received millions in federal tax dollars years ago to develop a low-cost ventilator for pandemics but didn’t deliver it. Instead, as the coronavirus began spreading around the globe and U.S. hospitals were desperate for more, Philips was selling commercial versions of the government-funded ventilator overseas from its Pennsylvania factory. Then in April, despite having not fulfilled the initial contract, the Dutch company struck a much more lucrative deal to sell the government 43,000 ventilators for four times the price.
