    MAGA Trumpism has morphed way beyond a political movement and, for a large chunk of them (not all), has now become a religious cult.

    • A recent Trump ad titled “God Made Trump” literally claims in very messianic terms that Trump was divinely chosen by god to lead the country. (I guess god must have run out of plagues.)

    • At a CPAC (Conservative Political Action Committee) conference, they literally set up a golden (fools’ gold) idol — a graven image — of Donald Trump and people were actually bowing down to it. The Golden Calf grew up to become the Wall $treet Bull and has now metastasized into the Golden Bull$h Easy to find the images using Google Image Search.

    • There are numerous images that have gone viral on social media platforms in which Donald Trump is portrayed in a messianic form, such as his Tweet on August 21 comparing himself to the “King of Israel” and “the second coming of God.” Many more examples can be found by Googling “Trump messianic statements.”

    Trump cult worship has devolved into the most blatant possible display of what evangelical “Christians” would have once considered the most obscene possible kind of blasphemy, yet it is the evangelical “Christians” who are most fervent in the worship of their latest false messiah. But then again, Christian dominionists live lives of blind obedience to all-powerful authoritarian leaders, so it is a small thing to transfer that authoritarian worship to the newest, latest, greatest “golden” idol.

    And in the meantime, Trump cult worshippers are going nuts to the point that Greg Kelley of NoiseMax slammed Taylor Swift fans for “idolatry,” noting that it is a sin condemned by the Bible, while ignoring the massive idolatrous cult worship of Trump.

    The lack of self-awareness astounds.

    Biden is a practicing Catholic. Trump doesn’t even know how to hold a Bible.

    Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-K.Y.) agreed to kill the GOP’s own border security bill on Monday evening, just three hours after coming out with emphatic support for it.

    “We get that’s what they’re doing,” she said. “What it could portend if you had a Democratic Party that was coherent in the way it communicated with America, there would be an ad on television in every swing state plus Texas every day saying, ’It’s been X number of days since Democrats and Republicans came together in the Senate to pass the strongest security bill at the border that we’ve ever seen.’ [Then] delineate what’s in it and say this congressman won’t pass it, that congressman won’t pass it, that congressman won’t pass it.”

    She warned that the GOP might actually be harming their own re-elections with the move.

    “Because if Democrats — and I don’t know if the Democratic Party is that coherent or cohesive in terms of being able to message,” Reid prefaced. “But if they were facing a Democratic Party that could do that, they would get buried. Every single negative incident that happened at the border would be an ad. Every single person who somehow broke away through immigration and committed a crime would be an ad. They’re so lucky that they face a Democratic Party that is focused on governing and not messaging.”

    Republicans are keeping the border open.

    Johnson said God spoke to him personally.

    No word on whether it was directly, or through Trump.


    Of course, for The Disciples, there’s no difference.

    “Republicans will have participated in passing a solution, making it harder for them to blame Biden for it,” writes Sargent. “That’s plainly why Donald Trump keeps urging Republicans to kill the bill.”

    Another reason they are scared of the bill is that they think it might work, wrote Sargent — and eliminate a key issue they’ve used as a weapon in countless elections.

    Republican Priorities:

    2. Protect the border.

    1. Protect Trump.

    Now that I think about it, protecting the border is probably closer to fifty on their list of things to do.

    The one true God is in the Church of the Spaghetti Monster

    Thy noodle come, Thy sauce be yum, on top some grated Parmesan. Give us this day, our garlic bread…and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trample on our lawns. And lead us not into vegetarianism, but deliver us some pizza, for thine is the meatball, the noodle, and the sauce, forever and ever. Ramen.

    Can Red States Pray the VD Away?

    Syphilis has been increasing even in countries with national health care, because “sexual health services remain inadequate relative to the need pretty much everywhere,” said Dr. Jay Varma, chief medical officer at Siga Technologies and a former deputy commissioner of health for New York City.

    “But it’s particularly a problem here in the United States,” Dr. Varma said. “When you miss one case, you then end up with two more cases, and if you miss two cases, you then end up with four,” he added. “That’s how epidemics grow.”

    With more than 84 cases per 100,000 people, South Dakota had the highest rate of syphilis infections, more than double that in New Mexico, the state with the next highest incidence. (Arkansas, Oklahoma and Mississippi rounded out the top five.) — February 2024

    Flexing clout, Trump pressures Republicans to kill Ukraine aid deal

    It is a full nine months until the presidential election but Donald Trump is already wielding extraordinary influence as he seeks to bend US foreign policy to his ambitions of a return to the White House.

    Republicans support Putin who supports Iran. Republicans give aid and comfort to the USA enemies.

    Johnson’s prayers were not answered. He brought the vote for impeachment against Mayorkas and lost. When was the last time a Speaker brought a vote to the floor not knowing he had the votes to win? What a toady dope.

    Right after trump was elected a minister said to me, ‘’God sent us trump’’ and I replied, ‘’Then he must be mad at us’’. No answer just bowed his head and walked away. The Bible says the anti-Crist will lead many of the faithful astray. When communism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and holding a Bible [up-side-down].
