How the Trump Saved Christmas, Or Not

cyscv8puoaeepfsCNN’s Trump-Paid-Shill, Corey Lewandowski, has announced that finally, THANK GOD, everyone can say Merry Christmas again because Donald Trump is President!  No more burning Christians at the stake… sorry, that was witches; no more waterboarding… nope, that’s terrorists… well, I can’t recall exactly what the punishment was for saying Merry Christmas… but it won’t happen anymore, thanks to Donald Trump.

You no longer need to worry about respecting your friends, neighbors, or relatives that celebrate Hanukkah, Mawlid un Nabi, Kwanzaa, or Winter Solstice, because we FINALLY have a President that says, “Enough of that co-exist bullshit!” Our thrice-married, serial-adultering, little-cracker-eating, religious-pandering, devoutly-phony-Christian-President Elect is putting the Christmas back in Christmas… for you, anyway. Trump himself prefers Holiday cards,

Is Trump just pandering to the poor, oppressed, phony-Christian right wing? I mean, let’s be honest, he doesn’t really need them anymore. Or is he helping his personal media/marketing company, Fox “News”; they love that “War on Christmas” story line. Especially Bill O’Reilly-

He’s made it an annual “thing”. Bubba’s sitting there pumping his fist, yelling “Yeah, that’s right, Christmas Goddamn it!” Then the channel goes to break across the country:

Crickets. Next up, Fox folks share photos from the company Christmas Holiday party:

The ladies attending the party found great stuff to wear in Fox Magazine’s article on Christmas Holiday dresses:

AND News Corpse, bless their hearts, found some great Fox swag for those die-hard O’Reilly fans:

That’s right, it’s the O’Reilly Factor Christmas Holiday Ornament! (Update: “The Fox Shop managers have edited their store and changed Holiday to Christmas.”)

Fox has LOTS of advice for the holidays (by which I assume they mean Christmas):

The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Him

Holiday Gift Ideas for Pet Lovers

Top 10 holiday gifts for moms

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies

30 Homemade Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas

You get the drift. Fox wouldn’t be Fox without something to be outraged about, phony or not. While we’re on the “War on Christmas” bullshit train, maybe O’Reilly or some other big-time Right Wing Christmas Crusader could tell me if guns and shameless self-promotion fall under “the reason for the season”:

Another thing I’ve long wondered about, from prayer in school, to saying Happy Holidays: Is Christian faith so untenable that their children not praying in school, or being respectful of others’ religious holidays can destroy it? A TRUE Christian finally answers that question for me:

Christians neither need a holiday to celebrate the birth of their Savior (we live daily in celebration of Him, don’t we?) nor are they forbidden to celebrate, to have fun and to give gifts, just because.

Just as I thought.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Michele Bachmann, You’re an Idiot

Michele Bachmann, the woman God pranked by telling her to run for President, sees the hand of God in Donald Trump’s election. Right Wing Watch reports:

lunatic-bachmann Bachmann said that during and prior to the election, prayer warriors were spread all across the country and tasked with offering up “very specific” prayers “for specific states, for specific counties, for specific percentages in cities that we needed to have” and God delivered.

“We saw the Lord answer so specifically that only the hand of God could do that,” she said. “Let’s pray and join and ask the Lord that godly believers would be put in these key sensitive positions. People that the Lord will use for blessing for the United States and for the world. This was the number one story of 2016: God answering the prayers of his people.”

Think about that: “God’s hand” was “punishing us” when he put a true Christian in the White House, not once, BUT TWICE, who saved the economy, got people back to work, used diplomacy before weapons, and governed FOR ALL of the American people. Then when IDIOTS elect a serial adulterer/sexual predator/racist/bigot/misogynist/fraud/tax cheat/small-handed-whiny-boy, who calls the sacrament “his little cracker”, THAT’S God answering their prayers.

You’re an IDIOT, Bachmann. It is you and your fellow Phony-Christian/Right-Wing-Nut-Job pals that are driving people away from organized religion. You wouldn’t recognize the hand of God if he punched you in the face with it.

Nominee Trump Proves Conservatives Really Have No “Values”

Right Wing Hypocrites Rally Around Trump

Liberals, Progressives, and Independents have always known that Conservatives’ constant yammering about their “values” was so much hot air. The 2016 primaries for their Party’s Presidential nominee has now removed all doubt for anyone with an IQ over two digits. The staunch “God and Country” set has chosen to throw both under the bus to support a racist, bigoted, bloviating ignoramus for the leader of the free world. For example:

Phyllis Schlaflyschlafly hypo, the Right Wing’s so-called “leader of the pro-family movement” has endorsed thrice married, serial adulterer Donald Trump for President, and by extension, his soft porn posing wife for First Lady. How did Trump win her over; why his promise to get rid of Mexicans and Muslims, of course.

Lindsey Grahamgraham hypo once said the choice between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump was, “…like being shot or poisoned, what does it really matter?” He even exhibited a nano-second of backbone when he declared on May 6th that he wouldn’t vote for GOP nominee Donald Trump. By May 23rd however, he was falling in line, calling on party donors to support Trump.

perryhypoRick Perry, Mr. Prayer Rally, once referred to Donald Trump as a “cancer on conservatism“, and lamented that Trump was: “A man too arrogant, too self-absorbed, to seek God’s forgiveness.” When Perry dropped out of the 2016 race he said of Trump: “The conservative movement has always been about principles… Our nominee should embody those principles.”

But, oh how quickly those “principles” are jettisoned when the words “Vice President” are dangled in front of you. Perry told CNN’s Dana Bash:

ryanhypoThen there’s Paul Ryan, perhaps the biggest political hypocrite of them all. Ryan has been beating around the endorsement bush for months. In response to Trump’s failure to denounce David Duke’s endorsement in March, Ryan said:
 
ryan quote
 
Go ahead, laugh; I’ll wait. Trump of course, responded ever-so-Presidentially by threatening Ryan:

At the beginning of May, Ryan claimed he was “just not ready” to support Trump the nominee. That led to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus setting up a meeting to convince them to make nice with each other. It worked, and in typical Conservative fashion, Ryan flushed what few principles he had down the Trump toilet. In an op-ed for Wisconsin’s Janesville Gazette, Ryan endorsed Trump:
 
ryan quote2
 
Many so-called “Religious Leaders” are backing Trump as well:
 
jeffresshypoDallas mega-church Pastor Robert Jeffress, who once declaredevery true, born-again follower of Christ ought to embrace a Christian over a non-Christian”, now says in support of Trump:
 
Every Christian has the right to his own opinion about a presidential candidate, but no Christian has the right to impose his preference as a litmus test for someone else’s Christianity or spirituality.”
 
Damn right. That litmus test is reserved for Gays, Muslims, Women, Immigrants, and Black Presidents.
 
lanehypoDavid Lane, leader of  American Renewal, supports Trump. In a possible attempt to out-crazy his fellow hypocrites, Lane suggests thrice married, serial adulterer Newt Gingrich, join his thrice married serial adulterer Presidential pick Donald Trump on the ticket. Of course, Gingrich would jump at the chance to be relevant again; but I’m sure he’s carefully considering the idea.
 
newtvp
 By the way, Lane also believes:
 
“… Donald Trump can be one of the  top four presidents in American history.”
 
Here’s a look at some other “Christian” Conservatives throwing their religion under the bus in pursuit of political power:
 
Jeremiah Johnsonjohnsonquote, of Behold the Man Ministries prophesied that Trump shall be God’s “trumpet to the American people.” (Christian Post, August 2015)
 

Franklin Grahamgraham: “He’s shaking up the Republican Party and the political process overall. And it needs shaking up.”

 
Jerry Falwell, Jr.junior called Trump “one of the greatest visionaries of our time.”
 
 David Brodybrody: “… If establishment GOP leaders want to blame anyone for Trump’s rise, they should start with a good look in the mirror… they took evangelical voters for granted. They felt confident that evangelicals would blindly vote for a traditional-values candidate.”

Christian voters won’t be bullied into voting for Christian candidates, so take that Jesus!

Let’s be honest here, Christian Conservatives have been offered a smorgasbord of Evangelical candidates in past elections: Bachmann, Santorum, Huckabee to name a few, but they don’t vote for them. Truth is, Christianity and “values” are not nearly as important to Conservatives as political power and the desire to shove their unwanted policies down Americans’ throats.

Choosing Donald Trump as their nominee proves they have no values at all.
