Did You Know That Trump, Pat Robertson and Jay Sekulow (Trump’s New “Defense Attorney”) Are All on the Same Team Now? They’re All Specialists in Scamming People, Building Highly Lucrative Nepotistic Empires… and Lying

Why would Trump hire a right-wing fundamentalist Pat Robertson clone/follower “First Amendment lawyer” famous for claiming white evangelicals are the victims of left wing media conspiracies (and for spreading other delusional fables) rather than a reputable defense attorney? Because Trump saw Sekulow on Fox NEWS!Trump watched as Sekulow praised him and Trump loved it! His new ass-kisser was hired by Fox as a “legal analyst” and Trump (like Chance the Gardener of “Being There”) watches TV! Tr … [Read more...]

Trump Is NOT Our Future! Take HOPE

I predict a coalition will rise up to wipe away the stench of Trump. Trump is the last stinking fart of a dying white supremacist oligarchy supported by a diminishing underclass and a white evangelical mob of self-pitying deluded fundamentalist know-nothing reactionaries. He -- and they -- are not our future. Take hope.Young voters will save us. Ask anyone in the UK. Ask the French. Ask the Dutch. The far right in Europe is being put in its place. Here in America in 2018 we will send the … [Read more...]

Trump’s Decision to Pull out Of the Paris Climate Accord Forces Us to Ask the Ultimate Moral Question: Is Human Existence Only a Vicious Arena Where Ruthless Destroyers Compete for Deadly Advantage, Or Do We Still Dare To Yearn For Beauty, Righteousness, Meaning And Purpose?

Trump is out to destroy the human race's hopes of reversing climate change. He molested women and now he is raping the planet. Trump said women were forced to let him assault them because he was rich and famous. Now he is murdering our future also convinced that he can get away with it.Let’s be clear: Trump's rape of Mother Earth has nothing to do with serving America’s national interest. In fact it will hurt us as China takes the lead in new energy efforts. The U.S. economy, in particular, w … [Read more...]

Sean Hannity, Seth Rich, Noah’s Ark and Trump: Why Fake News and Fake (Evangelical) Religion Endures

Why did 81 percent of white evangelicals believe Trump's lies? Why do they still persist in supporting this failing and flailing "president"? Why do they prefer fake news to facts? The answer can be found by juxtaposing 2 stories: Saen Hannity's fake conspiracy theories about Seth Rich and the fact that Ken Ham built an ark, a Noah-sized ark he wants us to believe actually once existed.If we can learn anything from these two related events -- religious delusion on a literally monumental … [Read more...]

Does U2’s Bono Support Donald Trump?

Bono is on tour and denouncing Trump. The problem is that Bono unwittingly helped get Trump elected. Bono did this by providing cover for the white evangelicals that are Trump's most reliable base.Bono has for years burnished the image of the far right hate-monger and Trump-booster Franklin Graham, and his hell-preaching fundamentalist father Billy. Bono has also provided photo ops for other white evangelical leaders including Mike Pence and W Bush. These are the people that put Trump in … [Read more...]

As we watch Trump abuse and debase the office of president we see a spiritual problem unfolding: the loss of the American soul.

In Calvinism, the theological cult of an angry God in which I was raised, humans are created by a God who like Trump, has determined to give them only the illusion of free will. And this God never intends to save them all or even most of them. Most are mere pawns to fuel his fires of hell for eternity-- the Calvinists love to quote St. Paul, who calls them “vessels of wrath”. Trump seems to worship no one but himself. But the angry selfish God of Calvin is waiting for him if Trump ever wants a go … [Read more...]

If Trump Was Your Cousin Would You Ever Ask Him to Care for Your Child or Grandchild Alone and Unsupervised For a Weekend?

We are being conditioned to chaos by Trump. Thank God he’s not caring for my grandchildren.My daily joy is found in the stillness of repeated tender moments. If you understand children you know that the new is the enemy of joy. Change must be incrementally introduced amidst calm and confidence-- new food items as it were added unobtrusively to old favorites and seamlessly folded into trusted secure routines.Children crave the security of a routine. “We always do this!” is a favorite phras … [Read more...]
