Creationist who thinks Obama was a gay prostitute poised to join Texas Board of Education

Published

on

A woman who believes in the New World Order conspiracy theory and that President Obama worked as a gay prostitute could soon win a seat on the Texas state Board of Education, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Mary Lou Bruner fell just 2 points short of gaining the 50 percent needed to avoid a run-off. Bruner, who claims to be a retired teacher who holds a Masters in special education, believes sex education materials “stimulate” children to experiment with sex and that the United Nations has a plan to wipe out two-thirds of the world population.

According to the Chronicle, Bruner has deleted most of her Facebook posts with questionable content — but not before Gawker and others could collect screen shots of them. Many can be viewed via a simple image search in Google.

“Obama has a soft spot for homosexuals because of the years he spent as a male prostitute in his twenties,” Bruner wrote in October. “That is how he paid for his drugs.”

Bruner also believes climate change is a conspiratorial hoax.

“Just think about how much money the government has wasted educating the people about the government hoax which officials first called ‘Global Warming,'” Bruner wrote, according to Gawker. “Government later changed the term to ‘Climate Change’ because government lies or predictions did not come true, and the people were becoming very suspicious because the world wasn’t getting warmer.”

Bruner also believes that dinosaurs co-existed with humans and, in fact, were on Noah’s Ark.

“The dinosaurs on the ark may have been babies and not able to reproduce,” she wrote. “It might make sense to take the small dinosaurs onto the ark instead of the ones bigger than a bus.”

She also links school shootings with the teaching of evolution in schools. Also troubling is the fact that Bruner has hateful views on Muslim people.

“The USA should ban Islam and stop all immigration. from Muslim countries because Islam’s stated goal is to conquer the USA and kill the infidels (nonbelievers),” she wrote.

According to the Chronicle, Bruner must face second-place winner Keven Ellis in a run-off election in May to join an organization that has already been under intense scrutiny. In July, the board was heavily criticized for textbooks that downplay the role of racism, racial violence, Jim Crow laws and the Ku Klux Klan in the South.

Evangelical calls out Christian right for continuing to oppose therapeutic weed: ‘America is sick’

Published

on

In a column for the New York Times, religion writer Jonathan Merritt made the Christian case to evangelicals who aligned themselves with the Republican Party during the Ronald Reagan era to accept that therapeutic marijuana could ease the suffering of hundreds of thousands of pain sufferers -- and that Jesus would approve.

According to Merritt, who admits he grew up the son of an evangelical pastor, that he was raised to believe that "marijuana was just one more sinful tool that the devil used to shred America’s moral fabric."

BUSTED: Trump super PAC accused of lying to government about the source of mysterious $325,000 donation

Published

on

According to a report from the Daily Beast's "Pay Dirt" investigative unit, a Super PAC affiliated with President Donald Trump has some explaining to do about a $375,000 donation that was wrongly attributed to one company -- but wire transfers tell a completely different story.

As the Beast notes, "The super PAC America First Action reported receiving a $325,000 contribution last year from a company called Global Energy Producers. But records released in federal court this week indicate that contribution came from an entirely different company," adding that the discrepancy was pointed out by the  Campaign Legal Center which labeled it a violation of federal campaign-finance laws.

Senate delivers stinging bipartisan rebuke to Trump — and blocks Saudi arms sales

Published

on

The Trump White House suffered a stinging defeat on Thursday when a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers voted to block sales of American arms to Saudi Arabia.

The vote in favor of blocking the arms sales received affirmative votes from all Senate Democrats, as well as votes from Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Todd Young (R-IN).

Graham, who is usually one of President Donald Trump's staunchest allies, said he voted for the bill because he believed the United States could not ignore the behavior of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, as well as the Saudi government's killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
