It’s those damned demons, again

gay_demonSo Franklin Graham thinks the demons are at it again.

The president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelical Association told Eric Metaxas, a host of a Salem Radio Network talk show, that “Well, I believe it’s almost a demonic power that is trying—” when Metaxas asked him why the left was picking on poor, sweet Donald Trump. Not happy to let Graham finish his thought, Metaxas jumped in with “I would disagree. It’s not almost demonic. You know and I know, at the heart, it’s a spiritual battle.”


You can’t even disagree with these RWNJs* without them invoking demons.

It must be exhausting, though, for the evangelical crowd. So many demons creating so much hate and discontent, and nobody except their righteous selves to fight the hellspawn. They believe God himself appointed Trump to the Presidency, and that Satan has been working overtime to ruin it all.

What gets me is how freaked out they were when Bill Clinton got caught with his pants down, but the admission that Trump paid a porn star hush money to cover up his tryst with her gets hardly a passing glance. Newt Gingrich (who was cheating on his wife at the time) and Lindsey Graham both tore into Clinton about his moral failings, but now seem to think Trump’s indiscretions are nothing of import. Something’s going on there. Maybe they have some demons of their own. Maybe those demons are Russian, and have names like Kompromat.

Whatever the case, a certain segment of the evangelicals are blaming things on demons. You can’t have a rational discussion with people who believe in such things, so all we can do is vote Trump and the Republicans out next November (assuming Trump isn’t removed by the Senate after being impeached by the House) and let the right-wing echo chamber yell itself hoarse about God’s will being undone by all these demons (as if the will of creator of the Universe could be undone by anything… come on guys, is your sky-buddy all-powerful, or not??).

*right wing nut jobs

It’s not Disneyland, is it?


Hey, Donald Trump! You just killed the most wanted terrorist in the Middle East! What are you going to do now?

“I’m going to the World Series!”

You heard what happened then, right?

If he wasn’t one of the biggest scumbags on the planet, I might feel a wee bit sorry for him.

But he is, so I don’t.

Melania seemed like she was having a good time, though.

“Lock him up. Lock him up.”

Batter up!

Colorado to get a wall. New Mexico to pay for it?

Rejected early version of the Great Wall of Colorado

The President of the United States thinks there is a border wall under construction in Colorado. He thinks talking about this wall is a joke. Kansas, next door, was told it was *not* getting a wall, but would benefit from Colorado’s.

It’s not clear who is going to pay for the wall, but New Mexico has history with Colorado and their shared border.

I put this on Facebook earlier today:

“So I’m thinking about possible road trips in the future. I’m wondering if I’m going to need a passport to get past the wall in Colorado. Will I need a visa to drive through New Mexico? I figure I can just show my birth certificate (long form version) to get into Texas. I wonder if there will be any special requirements to visit Moscow? (The one in Idaho). Who knew travel inside the USA could become so complicated?”

All of the above brought to you by Vladimir Putin, Guccifer 2.0, Wikileaks, and #MAGA.

Elections have consequences.



Russian spies storm Congress

Is fake news! Work of Moose and Squirrel!

Boy, the Internet is abuzz with news that Russian spies barged into a SCIF in the capitol building today. Claiming they were trying to prevent a Soviet-like… something, a group of duly-elected (probably, it’s still difficult to be certain) Republicans stormed a committee hearing in the basement of the Capitol building, claiming they were being locked out of the investigation of President Boris Badenov… err… Donald J. Trump.

The big problem? Aside from none of them being on the committee holding the hearing, they carried their phones into the meeting in a room that is a SCIF – Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility. Phones and other electronic devices are banned from SCIFs to prevent eavesdropping by our enemies.

That didn’t matter to these глупый. All they wanted was video and audio for their campaign to derail the impeachment proceedings against President Badenov… err… Trump.

Security be damned, they need video clips! Onward, comrades!
