The popular Florida televangelist — and President Donald Trump’s spiritual advisor — Paula White has put her son Brad Knight in charge of the New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, reports the Christian Post.

She explained her decision to congregants.

“From the day that I came here, which was, you guys know the story. One day I’ll share everything about how Dr. Zach, thank you Dr. Zach for the price you paid to be a founder and found this ministry and the faithfulness,” White said. As the Post notes, she was making a reference to Zachery Tims, who suffered a fatal overdose in New York City in 2011.

“You know many people, elder knows this, but we go way, way back. I knew Dr. Zach in Baltimore and just the eagerness as a son,” she continued.

“Prophetically he gave me a word prophet, that in 2005 I was in New York and he calls me, ‘Ma, ma, where are you?’ and I said ‘I’m in New York.’ ‘Are you OK?’ And he prophesies to me a word that wouldn’t make sense in 2005. Writes it down. But it would make sense in 2019,” she said. “And sometimes the prophetic like that it seems mysterious. It won’t make sense at that moment. And everything that he prophesied would come to pass to bring this to this point. And I will share that in the fullness [of time].”

While her son helms the church, White plans to open 3,000 more along with a university.

‘So, so cruel’: Rights advocates sound alarm about immigration agenda Stephen Miller is crafting for Trump’s 2nd term

Published

Immigrant rights advocates along with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his supporters responded with alarm to reporting this week that Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, is plotting how to "rev up Trump's restrictive immigration agenda" and is ready to "unleash executive orders deemed too extreme for a president seeking reelection" in the event of a Biden loss next week.

NBC News reported Friday that Miller, speaking as an adviser to the president's campaign, laid out four top priorities in a 30-minute call Thursday: "limiting asylum grants, punishing and outlawing 'sanctuary cities,' expanding the so-called travel ban with tougher screening for visa applicants, and slapping new limits on work visas." Implementing these policies would require a mix of legislation and executive action.

And yet for all the urgency, the political campaign still suffers under the weight and stench of bullshit.

This article first appeared in Salon.

Philosopher Harry Frankfurt warns in his bestselling pamphlet "On Bullshit" that "bullshit" is more injurious than the blatant lie. One reason among many is that bullshit blurs the line between reality and fiction, offering a manipulative incorporation of truth to strengthen its own capacity to persuade. Absolute falsity, in contrast, is obvious to anyone with minimal awareness of the facts. When the Trump administration recently declared that one of its grand achievements was "ending the pandemic," most people laughed in disbelief. This is a lie fit for consumption only from inhabitants of a collective similar to the Rev. Jim Jones' notorious People's Temple settlement in Guyana.
