Virginia Republican panics over anti-faith conspiracy so huge he can’t even prove it

Published

on

A Virginia Republican lawmaker said he would need at least two overhead screens to illustrate the links between well-funded organizations he claims are trying to destroy American religious faith.

Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Chesapeake) outlined the conspiracy during a sermon last month at Great Bridge Baptist Church in his hometown, but he told congregants that he didn’t have enough time to offer any evidence, reported Right Wing Watch.

Forbes was promoting Pray USA, an initiative by the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation to encourage government officials to lead churches in prayer, when he warned that the government had grown increasingly hostile to religious expression.

This, the elected official warned, was no accident.

“Let me just tell you one of the myths that’s out there,” Forbes said. “It’s easy for us to somehow just think that all of this just evolved because people on the internet, they’re reading more and they’re getting more intellectual and somehow or the other, it’s like they’ve discovered the world isn’t flat anymore and therefore we don’t believe in God and we don’t believe in faith.”

He claimed he had so much evidence to prove his startling claims that he would need more time, more screens — or perhaps even both.

“If I had the time, which I don’t have, I could put up on this screen or on this screen or on both of them the proof that would show you this isn’t some natural evolution, this is artificially driven,” Forbes said. “I can show you organization after organization after organization to a network that would frighten you because it would be vast that you couldn’t get it on that screen, of organizations that are funded and paid with a systematic approach to killing and destroying faith in America today.”

The lawmaker urged congregants to open their wallets.

“Most people don’t even realize it, and let me tell you, the dollars going into that organization is nine times the dollars going into the organizations trying to defend and protect faith in America,” Forbes said.

‘Washington is no longer functional’: Brian Williams admits he’s sad to report that ‘our government is broken’

Published

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on Tuesday reported that America's federal government is broken.

"This was day 908 of the Trump Administration and while there is no joy in it, one way of summing up today is this: Our government’s broken, our politics are broken, Washington is no longer functional, and the cracks in our society are deepening," Williams reported.

"Much of this day was taken up by the discussion of racist statements by the president. Then tonight came the news that had so many people thinking back to when we were different, the death just tonight of retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens at the age of 99," he said.

Trump ignored being condemned by Congress and instead praised Republicans on Twitter for defending his racism

Published

President Donald Trump celebrated on Tuesday night despite the House of Representatives having voted earlier in the day to condemn his racist statements.

By a final vote of 240 to 187, Congress voted for a resolution saying, "Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.”

The resolution said Congress “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.”

The tortured madness of Donald Trump: It’s clear the president is out of his mind

Published

Where’s Shakespeare when we need him? Only the Bard of Avon could do literary justice to the tortured madness of Donald Trump, who fluctuates between petulant self-pity and weird self-praise.

His brags are especially weird because they usually involve achievements he hasn’t made. It’s as though his saying something makes it true — even though everyone except his most naive devotees can clearly see that he’s either hallucinating or lying. In June, for example, at a rally launching his reelection campaign, he retrumpeted an old campaign promise to “drain the swamp,” assuring the adoring crowd that “that’s exactly what we’re doing right now.”
