Tony Perkins, Family Research Council #fundie #wingnut crooksandliars.com

Tony Perkins, head of the conservative Family Research Council, on Sunday said that liberals were to blame for mass shootings because they have allegedly taken God out of the public square.

Perkins appeared on Fox & Friends where he was identified as a "former police officer."

According to Perkins, the shooting near Odessa, Texas that left five dead was "just tragic."

"At some point, we have to realize that we as a nation have a problem," he continued. "And the problem is not the absence of laws, it's an absence of morality."

According to Perkins, the "absence of morality" had been caused by a "decades-long march through the institutions of America, driving religion and God from the public square."

Perkins said he was "willing" to talk to liberals about ending the epidemic of mass shootings.

"I agree, praying alone is not enough," Perkins opined. "It's time to act. It's not just about having a conversation about restricting those who should not have guns, criminals. But it's also a discussion of a absence of a moral core in our culture today."

Perkins said that teaching children about evolution is one cause of mass shootings.

"We've taught our kids they come about through chance through primordial slime and then we're surprised they treat their fellow Americans like dirt!" he exclaimed. "It's time we talk about the result of the left's systematic march through our institutions, driving religious expression from the public square."

Perkins complained that children are not being taught that they are "created in the image of God."

"We've driving religion from our public life and we're shocked that we no longer have morality and we no longer value human life," he remarked.

"Kenneth" From Georgia #sexist crooksandliars.com

Unhinged C-SPAN Caller Says Rape Prevention 'Indoctrination' Destroyed The US Army

A C-SPAN caller on Sunday complained that the U.S. military was guilty of "indoctrination" because service members receive mandatory training on sexual assault prevention.

On Sunday's edition of Washington Journal, host Steve Scully invited calls from people who wanted to comment on the impact of Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

In a call from in Georgia, "Kenneth" described himself as "an old retired Army sergeant major."

"And I want to tell you something," Kenneth began. "If you talk [about] the sexual stuff that's going on there [in D.C.] and that court was bad, you ought to see the U.S. Army now."

"Those women in Congress and in the Senate have absolutely destroyed the U.S. Army!" he continued. "Right now, you've got people going to classes like old Chinese Red Book classes. It's a mandatory -- it's mandatory! Everybody at Ft. Gordon for years now go to their 2-hour weekly indoctrination training to stop rape on post."

Kenneth griped that the "classes are mandatory" even though there are "not many" sexual assaults reported on base.

"And if you don't go, your career is over with," he bizarrely added. "And we have a problem now with overweight people afraid to say anything because they are afraid to be charged with being sexual harassers."

"So they don't say anything, they distance themselves from soldiers so that they don't have to come in contact with them," Kenneth concluded.

This is breaking: Paul Ryan was onboard the train carrying lawmakers, a whole bunch of lawmakers, to a high-level GOP retreat. A truck kamikaze rammed it, a cement truck, a big truck, a dump truck kamikaze rammed it. And Paul Ryan was on board. There’s one dead. A bunch of people injured. But what’s the odds of this? No, this is a message, you better believe it. And they’re going to spin it and try to, “Oh, it’s no big deal, everything’s fine.” “Oh, Vegas isn’t Islamic.” Of course it’s come out it has. “Oh, there’s not multiple shooters.” This is a serious message, very serious message that we can get you anywhere you are. You go to your baseball practice, we’re going to shoot you. We’re going to come after your family.

Rammed the front of the train, killing the driver and derailing part of the train. I mean, this is amazing. So this country is in a civil war. You can believe this was on purpose. I mean, I’d say 98 percent chance. This is unbelievable.

You had two miles away in Washington Antifa meeting with videos and police raids saying they were going to derail trains at that exact place and derailing a train a month before, but nobody -- it wasn’t a passenger train. And then they go, “Oh, the driver admits that he missed the speed limit and just went ahead and went too fast around there.” Yeah, whatever. I mean, this is getting ridiculous.

Ted Nugent #fundie crooksandliars.com

[By "Her" in the first paragraph, Nugent is referring to Wendy Davis]

"Her entire campaign was attacking and lying about me, calling me a draft dodger. I'm not. Calling me a racist. I'm not. Calling me a pedophile, Ed. I'm not."

The "pedophile" charge was most likely referring to a 1998 VH1 documentary where Nugent said that he had a history with young girls.

“I was addicted to girls. It was hopeless. It was beautiful,” Nugent said at the time. “I got the stamp of approval of their parents… I guess they figured better Ted Nugent than some drug-infested punk in high school.”

In the song "Jailbait," Nugent sang about his affection for young girls: "Well, I don't care if you're just 13 / You look too good to be true."

Nugent told Berliner that "the left" often twisted things, including the "hands up, don't shoot" protests against police violence, which he likened to "bend over, don't spank."

Ohio Boy #racist crooksandliars.com

An Ohio seventh-grader is accused of threatening to shoot a Muslim classmate he called a terrorist and a “towel head.”

The boy threatened on Dec. 7 to bring a .40-caliber gun from home the following day and kill a sixth-grader he had been feuding with on the school bus, reported WHIO-TV.

The older boy called the Muslim student “the son of ISIS” and accused him of responsibility for destroying the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001 — which happened before either boy was born.

The seventh-grader then asked the younger boy if he intended to bomb him, witnesses said.

The victim said he did not hear the older boy threaten to shoot him, but another student did and reported the incident to the bus driver.

The incident was captured on surveillance video that also recorded audio, and the victim said he believed the older boy would hurt him or other students.

The older boy admitted to using racial slurs, saying he was angry at the Muslim boy because he never wanted to sit down on the bus and plays his music too loud.

He told police he didn’t remember saying anything about a gun, but he agreed the recording showed he had threatened to shoot his classmate.

The boy told police that he was familiar with firearms because he hunts with his father.

He was arrested and charged with ethnic intimidation and aggravated menacing.

"Dr" Rick Van Thiel #conspiracy crooksandliars.com


Before becoming an antigovernment “sovereign citizen,” Rick Van Thiel worked as a porn star, male escort and sex toy inventor in Las Vegas.

Now Van Thiel is in jail there, accused of practicing medicine without a license and claiming to have performed dozens of abortions, circumcisions, castrations, root canals, even cancer treatments.

Meanwhile, the FBI, the Southern Nevada Health District and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department are attempting to locate more than 100 former “patients” of the sovereign citizen-physician who calls himself “Dr. Rick.”

His patients — treated in a ramshackle trailer described as a scene from a horror movie — likely were drawn in by his ads promoting holistic medicine and natural remedies and denouncing conventional medicine, vaccinations, the pharmaceutical industry, GMOs and government interference with health care...

He will be in court later this month in Las Vegas – acting as his own attorney, a frequent practice for sovereigns.

“We do NATURAL REMEDY RESEARCH for the purpose of increasing quality and span of life, one human being at a time,” Van Thiel claims on one of his websites. “Unlike the American medical industry's toxic drug-dealing doctors, we don't see you as your disease.”

Like other extremists, Van Thiel claims chemtrails are evidence the U.S. government is secretly poisoning its citizens.

Van Thiel claimed he performed abortions, removed sebaceous cysts, treated sexually transmitted and life-threatening diseases and provided ozone treatments at “unbeatable prices” in exchange for Bitcoins, gold and silver and firearms.

“I contract privately with people [and] do not contract with government employees of any kind,” he said in advertising his medical services.

“Prior to becoming a professional doctor, I was a sex machine inventor, swinger, BDSM master, porn actor and producer for 14 years, so I've seen it all,” Van Thiel wrote on his site. He claims the title “Dr. Rick” is a nickname, “not intended to infer state sanction or Rockefeller drug pushing training.”

“The purpose of this site is not to beg for FDA endorsement or to diagnose or treat disease, it is to help you make informed decisions necessary to take control of your own life and health, and now to care for it in the manor [sic] you decide is best for you,” a passage on the site reads...

Van Thiel contends prostitution and practicing medicine shouldn't be regulated by the government because they involve “only consenting individuals.” He claims to have studied health and anatomy for 28 years, telling the Las Vegas paper he “has treated hundreds of patients.”

“When I work with people, it's a deal between me and them, not a deal between me, them and the government," Van Thiel told Las Vegas station KVVU-TV.

Van Thiel claims on his website that he treats “morgellons,” a delusional symptom in which patients claim they are infested with disease-causing agents. “Dr. Rick” says the ailment “should be called Genetically Modified Organism Disease” that is a secret government “bio-weapon that has been unleashed on humanity via genetically modified food and Geo-engineering (chemtrails).”

Gavin McInnes #fundie crooksandliars.com

Fox regular Gavin McInnes turned a discussion about Hillary Clinton into a jaw-dropping rant about women in the workforce and how they’d be better off as housewives and stay-at-home mothers.

The Hannity segment was supposed to be about a report that Clinton pays her women staffers less than the men.

Guest Tamara Holder dismissed the report as false. McInnes seemed to acknowledge that by saying, “There’s different ways to look at the data.”

Then he let forth the asinine.

MCINNES: But the big picture here is women do earn less in America because they choose to. They would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital than stay all night at work, working on a proposal so they end up earning less. They’re less ambitious and I think this is sort of God’s way – this is nature’s way of saying women should be at home with the kids. They’re happier there!

The look on Holder’s face was priceless.

“I hope that your viewers do not take you, sir, seriously,” she said. “Having a choice does not mean that you’re less ambitious and your comments are absolutely deplorable.”

Holder tried to get Hannity to denounce McInnes and his comments but Hannity did not.

Meanwhile, McInnes got even more obnoxious.

MCINNES: Most women are happier at home. They are pretending that they like working and they’re not making money because they don’t stay all night at the office. They don’t go the extra mile. They don’t work all weekend.

You’re making a mistake! You would be much happier at home with a husband and children!

…You just said you’re single, you don’t have a boyfriend. You’re what, you’re celibate…Look, you’re miserable. You would be so much happier with kids around you tonight. Imagine coming home, ‘Mommy’s home!’”

Hannity buried his face in his hands.

“You’re not funny,” Holder told McInnes.

“I’m trying to make you happy,” McInnes replied.

Hannity erupted in laughter.

The poor of New Orleans will storm the levees and steal the bags, thereby putting themselves at risk for the eventual flooding that will happen once they remove the bags of money. And that way, Republicans can get rid of even more Democrats in Louisiana and shore up the state for themselves.”

A rejection of health care egalitarianism, namely a recognition that the wealthy will purchase more and better health care than the poor. Trying to equalize health care consumption hurts the poor, since most feasible policies to do this take away cash from the poor, either directly or through the operation of tax incidence. We need to accept the principle that sometimes poor people will die just because they are poor. Some of you don’t like the sound of that, but we already let the wealthy enjoy all sorts of other goods — most importantly status — which lengthen their lives and which the poor enjoy to a much lesser degree.

That's what it was instituted for, okay? That's God, he hasn't changed. Oh, God doesn't feel that way in the New Testament ... God never "felt" anything about it, he commanded it and said they should be taken out and killed.

You know why God wanted the sodomites in the Old Testament to be killed? You know why every good king of Israel, the Bible says they got rid of the sodomites in the land? You know, the good kings that came after the bad kings who had allowed the sodomites to infest their land, they had infiltrated ... King Asa got the sodomites out of the land, Jehoshaphat exterminated the sodomites that were left from the days of his father, Asa. Why? Because the sodomites are infectious, that's why. Because they're not reproducers, that goes without saying, they're recruiters.

jacobin #conspiracy crooksandliars.com

I am genuinely interested in learning why Keynesianism is better than the Austrian School of economic thought.

Here's a few reasons I think it's not -

1) Our economic policy is based on The Theory of Economic Integration, which was written in 1961 by World Bank advisor Bela Balassa. When people like Dr. Robert Pastor and Vicente Fox talk about "deepening economic integration", this is what they are referring to.

Balassa condensed the concept into 6 steps, the first two being free trade agreements like GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA etc. The third is a customs union which Dr. Pastor has advocated on CNN. The 4th is a common market, the 5th is a monetary union (surprise) and the 6th is complete economic integration, or the creation of supranational states (e.g. failed Treaty of Lisbon).

Thus when Barack Obama says he sees no evidence of a "North American -- uhhhh uhhhh what'd you call it -- oh Union" and then immediately follows with a statement regarding NAFTA, you wonder if he is either very clever or tragically ignorant. (To clarify, NAFTA is the first step in creating political unions, which exist on every continent except North American and Antarctica. It's like saying, I lit the match but I don't know how the fire started.)

2) Before Economic Integration, this idea was known as the Open Conspiracy. This was the title of a book written by HG Wells. It essentially said that the answer to world peace was world government. Wells was a member of the Fabian Society, which believes in a gradual transition to socialism rather than revolutionary. Wells later wrote a book, The New World Order on the same idea.

Fabian politicians today include Tony Blair (a member) and Bill Clinton, who have both promoted the Third Way which is a mix of socialism and capitalism.

Watch the DLC roundtable with Clinton and Blair as they gush about the Third Way -- http://www.connectlive.com/events/dlc/dlc-apr...

If you research the Third Way, it largely refers to Fabian Socialism. The Fabian Society published a book entitled The Third Way by Tony Blair.

In 1936, David Rockefeller wrote his senior thesis at Harvard on Fabian Socialism. Thus it is this idea -- the Open Conspiracy / The Third Way / Economic Integration / A New World Order -- that is the agenda of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

The CFR's Think Tank is called The David Rockefeller Studies Program, he is their Chairman Emeritus and their headquarters in NYC is a former Standard Oil Executive's residence.

Thus, through the Federal Reserve's monetary policies, the CFR creates a climate for economic integration by debasing the currency via military Keynesianism. This planned crisis is merely a justification for deeper economic integration.

Maybe it's good or maybe it's not, but we should at least accept it's real. Vicente Fox has only said repeatedly on TV and in speeches and in his autobiography that he believes we should create a EU-styled North American Union. And this is enabled by the Federal Reserve's policies and stated clearly in the CFR's publications.

3) None of this is evil per se, it's actually intellectual and inevitable to try to social engineer society on such a level for legitimate benefit. However, starting in the early 1900s, the intellectuals in the US conceived that war was the greatest way to change society thus how do they start wars -- infiltrate the State Dept (verified in Carnegie Archives NYU, House of Representatives Archives etc).

If you look at the leadership of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the State Dept, you can see its mirrored. They believed world peace (via the League of Nations and later the UN) was possible through war and therefore provoked wars. Even better, creating a military industrial complex that compounds a never ending defense sector is useful for debasing the currency in order to achieve the 5th step of economic integration.

You can deny this but all of it is well documented. And perhaps it is good. But at least lets debate it. Globalization is bigger than the CFR and David Rockefeller. There are alternative ideas for globalism than this endless war for collectivist change.

--------------------

Of course, it was Thomas Jefferson who founded the Democrat party. He was against Big Government, a Central Bank and a National Debt. He was a deist but recognized that the classic liberal philosophy (i.e. Jeffersonian Republicanism) was perhaps divine in nature (see the Indefinite Perfectibility of Man, William Godwin & Adam Weishaupt).

Jefferson didn't believe Jesus was the son of God but he was aware that Jesus represented the ultimate political philosophy of the Indefinite Perfectibility of Man. As Jefferson wrote: "Wishaupt believes that to promote this perfection of the human character was the object of Jesus Christ. That his intention was simply to reinstate natural religion, & by diffusing the light of his morality, to teach us to govern ourselves. "

Thus, it seems like your party's founder and Jesus himself would be very against Keynesianism.

The problem (inaudible) gay advocacy groups (inaudible) enthusiastically endorse Beshear, knowing he’s their guy. Kentuckians have already voted to amend the state constitution to prohibit same sex marriage. Now, do you want governor who’d like Kentucky to be like another San Francisco?
