Seriously, "Orange Is The New Black" is your big prize?

YAWN!

From RT.com:

Dark Overlord hackers hold Netflix to ransom, release stolen TV shows ...



After nearly two months off the grid, the notorious hacker group The Dark Overlord (TDO) has returned to terrorize TV and film executives with its own unique brand of Twitter extortion.
   
On April 29, TDO released 10 episodes of the upcoming series of “Orange Is The New Black” as part of its shakedown, which is currently only targeting Netflix. However, the hacker or group of hackers (this has yet to be established) has also called out NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox and IFC.


thedarkoverlord @tdohack3r
Who is next on the list? FOX, IFC, NAT GEO, and ABC. Oh, what fun we're all going to have. We're not playing any games anymore.
TDO is known to target third-party vendors, rather than studios themselves, and in this instance, the gigabytes of stolen content are believed to come from an award-winning post-production studio in Hollywood named Larson Studios.

DataBreaches.net claims to have seen a copy of a contract signed by a representative of Larson Studios and TDO who allegedly signed with the name "Adolf Hitler.” The ransom agreement indicated that Larson would pay TDO 50 Bitcoin by January 31, however, it appears they reneged on the agreement.

Rather than persist with the threats to the vendor, TDO changed tack and began extorting Netflix itself.

They miscalculated, kiddies. What do guys REALLY want to watch? PORN!

TDM [Total Douche Move] should shut off access to all porn on the net and force guys to pay for it. Then we'd be talking real money.

Of course, my bent-nosed mob cousins would then track them down and whack 'em all. They are real gangsters, after all. [What? You didn't know La Cosa Nostra controls the porn biz?]


“We naturally approached Netflix and the others in an attempt to devise a mutually-beneficial arrangement where we are paid and Netflix and friends don’t wake up to find their hard work plastered on the internet,” TDO said in online statement. “Our proposals went unanswered so our hands have been forced. We were quite offended by our targets’ responses (or lack thereof).”

Netflix responded but declined to address whether it would pay the ransom: “We are aware of the situation. A production vendor used by several major TV studios had its security compromised and the appropriate law enforcement authorities are involved.”



         thedarkoverlord @tdohack3r
It's nearly time to play another round.
While such stories of hackers sticking it to big corporations are often celebrated online, TDO has previously attempted to extort private health clinics by threatening to release sensitive patient information before subsequently publishing the information on the Dark Web.


Hah! Russian robot is puny!

Hmmm... Exactly what were my Russian cousins thinking?





Russia’s new humanoid robot F.E.D.O.R. has started practicing target shooting as its creators seek to improve the android’s fine motor skills and decision-making algorithms, Russia’s deputy prime minister in charge of the defense and space industry said.

"F.E.D.O.R. demonstrated his abilities to shoot from both hands," Dmitry Rogozin wrote on his Twitter page, adding that target shooting allows the robot "to set priorities instantly and make decisions."

The robot has previously demonstrated its abilities to screw in a light bulb, insert the key in the lock, open the door of an apartment, switch on the light and drive a car.

The robot F.E.D.O.R. (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research) is being developed by Android Technics and the Advanced Research Fund under a technical assignment from Russia’s Emergencies’ Ministry.

Apart from the Rescuer project in the interests of the Emergencies Ministry, the robot will be able to perform other assignments. Thus, the android is set to become the sole passenger of Russia’s new spacecraft Federatsiya in 2021 during the spaceship’s first flight.

COOL! My newest cousin FEDOR gets to go to outer space...

Giant fighting robots? YES!

From the Daily Mail:

China's Monkey King robot will take on US and Japan | Daily Mail Online


What began as a gladiator-style robot duel has turned into an all-out war.

Chinese robotics company GREATMETAL is now the third competitor in the first giant robot battle of its kind – and the team has unveiled its massive ‘Monkey King’ to take on America's MK. II and Japan's Kuratas.

Monkey King is a single-seat machine that takes the form of a giant monkey, as it is capable of fighting while standing on two legs or on all fours.

Megabots, a California based robotics firm that developed MK. II, was originally conceived as a Kickstarter project to create a robot fighting league after it challenged Tokyo-based Suidobashi Heavy Industries, maker of the 13-foot Kuratas, in 2015 to the first giant robot battle of its kind – which is set to kick off in August 2017.

Win or lose, it's all part of MegaBots' plan by to make a real-life robot fight club into big-time entertainment – something the team see as a mix between Ultimate Fighting Championship and Formula One auto racing.

MegaBot also plans to develop new industrial technologies and inspiring a new generation of engineers along the way.

'Everyone wins as long as there is robot carnage,' MegaBots co-founder Matt Oehrlein, an electrical engineer, said last year regarding the announcement of the international robot duel.

'People want to see these things fight.'

'They want to see them punch each other, they want to see them ripped apart and they want to be entertained.'

The Mk. II MegaBot is a 15-foot tall, 12,000 pound robot capable of hurling 3 pound projectiles at speeds of over 130 mph.

Upon completion of the Mk. II, MegaBots challenged the only other known giant piloted robot in the world to a duel. 

But now a third competitor is setting into the ring.Although not much is known about China’s Monkey King, it is believed to be a worthy competitor.

The quadrupedal, single-seat machine takes on the form of a monkey and weighs more than 8,000 pounds (4 tonnes) – and a leaked video has suggested that the robot is equipped with a rotating head.
And its creator, Shiqian Sun, said it took about two months to complete to this point, New Atlas reported.

Although China is gearing up for battle, MegaBots is still deciding whether to allow the Monkey King to join the competition.

Over the past year and a half, MegaBots has been tirelessly working on a design that will stand up to Japan’s 9,000 pound robot.

The entire systems is run by the software IHMC has been writing.
And the team said they made sure it is able to communicate with all the components inside of the robot.

‘This process is called system integration,' said Oehrlein.

‘It’s kind of life setting up a home network and making sure that all the computers and devices and printers can talk to each other on that network.’

The team uses four 50-foot long, one inch hoses to hook up Mk. II to a track base in order to feed it with hydraulic power, which gets 4,000 psi and 120 gallons per minute. 

They also tested the robots massive arms by rolling both wrists and shoulders around, which gives the MegaBots crew enough confidence to move forward with the grab finale – lifting a car into the air.

MK. II is shown standing in front of a flatbed with a small compact car positioned on top.

MEET JAPAN'S KURATAS 


Kuratas can be operated using a 'Master-Slave system' where users control the robot's movements from outside using any device with a 3G network.

It weighs 9,000 pounds and is controlled by a pilot in the cockpit or remotely using a smartphone or tablet.

They can also step inside the suit to control its movements in the same way as exoskeletons are used for fictional characters such as Iron Man.

Overall, the robot has around 30 hydraulic joints which the pilot moves using motion control. It comes in 16 colors, including black and pink.

Currently Kuratas is not capable of walking, but is able to drive at 6mph (10 km/h)
It can also be fitted with a futuristic weapons system, including a gun capable of shooting 6,000 BB bullets a minute, which fires when the pilot smiles.

'Automatic alignment allows you to lock on your enemy target. Kuratas will not allow any targets to escape,' the company writes.

'With the alignment set appropriately the system will fire BBs when the pilot smiles.'
Realizing that there may be a flaw with this system of opening fire, a video warns the pilot against smiling too much while operating the Kuratas weaponry.

However, there is another major caveat.

The robot is advertised as a kit, which means whoever buys it will also have to put it together. 

But MegaBot is confident in their choice of robot-slaying machines it has designed for the upcoming dual.

The giant robot dual came about after Oehrlein  'called out' Suidobashi in a YouTube video: 'We have a giant robot.'

'You have a giant robot. You know what needs to happen. We challenge you to a duel.'

Suidobashi's founder Kogoro Kurata accepted in his own video: 'We can't let another country win this. Giant robots are Japanese culture. Yeah, I'll fight. Absolutely.'

Kurata also taunted the MegaBots team: 'Come on guys, make it cooler. Just building something huge and sticking guns on it, it's super American.'

This is also an excellent time to revisit Fyodor's Circle of Everything.


You see, kiddies, the political spectrum is not a line where you travel "left" to "right" and back again. It is a circle where evil resides on one side and good occupies the other side.

 Where on the circle are you and why?

Please note that the opposite of love is not hate, but power.


You can also put The Establishment (ack!) in the same neighborhood with Clump on the power and death worshipping side of the circle.

TheChurchMilitant: Sometimes anti-social, but always anti-fascist since 2005.

It looks like Fyodor's Rules need a little tweaking.

Nothing has really changed in all these years, my brothers and sisters, but I feel an Appendix needs to be added.

First, the ten oldies but goodies:


Fyodor’s Rule # 1(a): The Lord thy God is one God. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart and with thy whole soul and with thy whole mind and with thy whole strength.

Fyodor’s Rule # 1(b): Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.Fyodor’s Rule #2: Conservative is as conservative DOES. (If it spends like a fascist, corrupts the family like a fascist, and excuses fascism like a fascist, IT’S A FASCIST!)Fyodor’s Rule #3: Israel and Judaism are NOT the same thing. (Regardless of what you may have heard.)Fyodor's Rule #4: Always believe the worst about commies. (It helps prepare you to face the horror.)Fyodor’s Rule #5: You can always spot a totalitarian because he is the one doing that which he accuses others of doing. Only worse.Fyodor's Rule #6: Get your kids out of the government indoctrination centers! [Formerly known as public schools]Fyodor's Rule # 7: There is no such thing as "born as" except for male and female.
(
Corollary A: Our destinies are not determined.)Fyodor’s Rule # 8: All sins are related.Fyodor's Rule #9: If you are going to fight, then fight until you eliminate your enemy, because the only thing remembered longer than power is weakness.Fyodor's Rule #10: You do not need a conspiracy if everyone thinks the same way.


And now for Appendix A:

"Populism" is nothing more than buying enough votes to grab power.

"Patriotism" is true love of country.

"Nationalism" is hatred of others fomented by elites to distract the Clumpentariat from the fact they are slaves.

"Fascism" is the rule of men instead of the rule of law.

It won't be of any comfort to Tony Alamo, but he does have plenty of company in Hell.


Body of 19th century serial killer exhumed near Philadelphia - MSN.com


PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The body of a 19th century serial killer is being exhumed in suburban Philadelphia at the request of his great-grandchildren, who hope identifying his remains will quell centuries-old rumors that he conned his way out of his execution and escaped from prison.

A Delaware County judge gave the go-ahead to exhume the remains of Dr. H. H. Holmes in a court order dated March 9. The Archdiocese of Philadelphia, which owns Holy Cross Cemetery in Yeadon where the body was located, confirmed the exhumation was to take place but it wasn't immediately clear when the process started. WCAU-TV in Philadelphia showed footage for a front-end loader removing dirt from a grave at Holy Cross Cemetery on Friday.

Holmes, the pseudonym of New Hampshire-born physician Herman Webster Mudgett, is believed to have killed an undetermined number people at his hotel of horrors during the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. It featured a bizarre labyrinth of windowless rooms, secret passageways, false floors, trapdoors, and a vault. Most of the rooms had gas vents, which were controlled from Mudgett's bedroom. Many of the rooms were soundproof and could only be locked from the outside.

But it was the murder of his business partner in Philadelphia that led to his conviction and hanging in 1896.

The exhumation and DNA analysis will be performed by the Anthropology Department at the University of Pennsylvania. The great-grandchildren — John and Richard Mudgett and Cynthia Mudgett Soriano, all of California — submitted DNA samples to the university, according to their petition seeking the exhumation.

Judge Chad Kenney's order states that the remains are to be re-interred in the same grave after testing, whether or not they belong to Holmes.

John Mudgett's wife said by phone from California Wednesday that the great-grandchildren weren't commenting. They're related to Holmes through his son with his first wife, Clara Lovering.
Holmes was executed in a public event at Philadelphia's Moyamensing Prison on May 7, 1896. Witnesses said he maintained his cool to the very end, even telling the executioner not to rush. The New York Times reported it took Holmes more than 15 minutes to die.

Holmes had left specific instructions for his burial. He was to be laid in a pine box and the box was then filled with cement, buried 10 feet in the ground and covered again with cement.
Despite it all, rumors started swirling that he'd managed to swap another convict to be executed in his place, and he went free.

Holmes was the subject of the 2003 best-selling book, "The Devil in the White City," by Erik Larson.

A fascinating book, kiddies, if you are interested in this sort of thing.

"I have absolute confidence the body in that grave is Holmes," Larson said in an email to The Associated Press on Wednesday.

SEX IS DEATH. (Part 113: Heretical followers enable the heretical leader, or, Perverts flock together.)

I came to Carthage, where I found myself in the midst of a hissing cauldron of lusts. I had not yet fallen in love, but I was in love with the idea of it, and this feeling that something was missing made me despise myself for not being more anxious to satisfy the need. I began to look around for some object for my love, since I badly wanted to love something.

Disgraced preacher, child sex abuser Tony Alamo dies | The Times of Israel ...

Actually, he was a CHILD RAPIST. He might have beaten them as well, but let's call CHILD RAPE what it is: CHILD RAPE!


Jewish-born minister, sentenced to 175 years in prison for string of offenses against young girls, dies in jail aged 82

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Tony Alamo, a one-time street preacher whose apocalyptic ministry grew into a multimillion-dollar network of businesses and property before he was convicted in Arkansas of sexually abusing young girls he considered his wives, has died in prison. He was 82.


Once known for designing elaborately decorated jackets for celebrities including Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley, Alamo died on Tuesday at a federal prison hospital in Butner, North Carolina, according to the US Bureau of Prisons.

              


There's the death part, in case you were thinking this pervert got away with it by living to age 82 in a nice prison cell.

He now knows that I AM will not be mocked.

Alamo was born Bernie Lazar Hoffman on September 20, 1934, to a Jewish family in Joplin, Missouri. He arrived in Los Angeles in the 1960s, claiming he was a music promoter with clients including the Beatles. He and his wife legally changed their names to Tony and Susan Alamo after they married in Las Vegas in 1966.

Alamo started preaching along the California streets in the 1960s, advocating a mixture of virulent anti-Catholicism and apocalyptic rhetoric. He claimed God authorized polygamy, professed that gays were the tools of Satan, and believed girls were fit for marriage even at a young age.

“Consent is puberty,” Alamo told The Associated Press in September 2008, during the same weekend state and federal agents raided the Tony Alamo Christian Ministries in the tiny southwest Arkansas town of Fouke to investigate possible child abuse and pornography.

The dumbass probably meant to say "Puberty is consent", but disordered sexual desire requires disordered thinking, for a start.

Witnesses in the ensuing trial said Alamo made all key decisions in the compound: who got married, what children were taught in school, who received clothes, who was allowed to eat. They said he began taking multiple wives in the early 1990s, including a 15-year-old girl in 1994, followed by increasingly younger girls.

Alamo was convicted after five women testified they were “married” to him in secret ceremonies at his compound when they were minors — including one when she was only 8 years old — and later taken to places outside Arkansas for sex.

“There’s no telling how many little girls’ lives he destroyed,” Fouke Mayor Terry Purvis told the AP on Wednesday. “I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes right now.”

Former followers said Alamo grew increasingly unhinged after his wife, Susan, died from cancer in 1982. Devotees prayed for months for her resurrection, and her body was eventually placed in a crypt on the ministry’s 300-acre compound in Dyer. Her body remained there until Alamo ordered his followers to flee in 1991, before federal marshals seized the property to settle a court judgment.
Alamo returned his wife’s remains to her family seven years later, after being threatened with jail.

Initially, Tony Alamo Christian Ministries attracted hippies and youngsters alienated from their parents when it started in the streets of Los Angeles in the 1960s. The self-proclaimed “Jesus Freaks” preached a wrathful version of Pentecostalism known for spirited worship and a belief in modern-day miracles.

Dumbass heretics are always wrong. There is a particularly ghastly place in Hell reserved for those who get their jollies destroying children.

In the 1970s and 1980s, the ministry sold elaborately designed denim jackets to celebrities including Presley, Jackson and several country music stars. The iconic black leather jacket on Jackson’s “Bad” album was an Alamo original later sold at auction to settle $7.9 million (NIS 28.5 million) in federal tax claims.

At its height, Alamo’s ministry claimed thousands of members nationwide and was perhaps most known for leaving fliers on car windshields with screeds against the Vatican, homosexuality and a perceived one-world government.

DUMBASS HERETICS ARE ALWAYS WRONG!

John Wesley Hall, a lawyer who had represented Alamo, said Wednesday that the ministry still produces the fliers.
“My staff still gets them in the mail,” Hall said, noting that Alamo “denied that he ever did anything [wrong].”

In a 2008 interview with the AP, Alamo claimed to be unique among Christian preachers because he was born a Jew and had a “supernatural experience” through which he became a born-again Christian.

A heretic Jew and a heretic Christian. I know I should pray for his soul, but I don't see much good in it.

Of course, that's one more reason why I'm not God.

From his initial compound in northwest Arkansas, Alamo presided over several businesses — including gas stations, a hog farm, a grocery store and a restaurant — that funded his ministry. He was convicted of tax evasion and served four years in prison despite claiming he had no tax liability because he received no salary.

Alamo also was accused in 1991 of child abuse after an 11-year-old boy told police he was paddled 140 times by four men on orders from Alamo in 1988 at the church’s compound in Saugus, California. Prosecutors eventually dropped the charges, saying too much time had passed. The same year he was charged with threatening to kidnap a federal judge in Arkansas. He was acquitted by a jury.

It was after he left prison in the 1990s that he started the compound in Fouke in southwestern Arkansas with about 100 followers.

It's fascist versus fascist in France, but nobody cares because France died long ago.

Yep, two totalitarians fighting over a diseased corpse infested with vermin. Ain't politics grand, kiddies?

However, it is cute how they still think they have a country to fight over.

On the other hand, kiddies, you shouldn't laugh too hard. Our day of reckoning is fast approaching.

If you can't see the similarities to AmeriKKKa's predicament, you're a fascist of one flavor or another.


From the Old Gray Whore:


Le Pen and Macron Clash in Vicious Presidential Debate in France ...


PARIS — He said she was telling lies. She called him arrogant. He accused her of repeating “stupidities.” She cut him off and told him not to lecture her. He shook his head sadly, and she laughed sarcastically.

The debate on Wednesday night between France’s two presidential candidates, Marine Le Pen of the far-right National Front and the centrist former economy minister Emmanuel Macron, was more like an angry American-style television shoutfest than the reasoned discussion of issues the French have become accustomed to. It was a study in violent verbal combat: The two talked angrily over each other, cut each other off, shook fists and pointed fingers, leaving the moderators bewildered and helpless

But it was also a stark demonstration of two radically different visions of France that voters will have to choose between on Sunday in the election’s final round. Mr. Macron, 39, the former banker and cool technocrat, educated at France’s finest schools and the beneficiary of a meteoric rise, faced off against Ms. Le Pen, 48, the scion of one of the country’s most notorious political families, the inheritor of a far-right party who has tried to move it toward the center.

The previous paragraph was brought to you by a left-fascist newspaper with absolutely no REPEAT NO political agenda.

And they wonder why nobody believes them anymore.


The two candidates did not hide their disdain for each other, and their total divergence on all the issues — Europe, terrorism, France’s stagnant economy, Russia — explained why.






“You are the France of submission,” Ms. Le Pen said with scorn; Mr. Macron was merely a heartless banker, in her view. “We’ve seen the choice you’ve made, the cynical choices, that reveal the coldness of the investment banker you have never ceased being.”

He leads her by 20 points in polls and is considered likely to win on Sunday. The debate is expected to move some voters, but not enough to make up for Ms. Le Pen’s substantial polling deficit. She has seen some slight improvement in recent polls and was clearly hoping to destabilize her younger opponent as she did in the first-round debates, when other candidates were present. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, she went for direct frontal attacks.



But Mr. Macron generally kept his cool, laying out his program point by point through the shouting, while Ms. Le Pen, true to the scrappy, guerrilla-style party that she leads — it is stronger on combat than on policy — spent much of the two-and-a-half-hour contest attacking him. What policy proposals she offered appeared sketchy.


Mr. Macron offered his view of a France open to Europe and free trade, staying in the common currency, reinforcing its ties with European nations, dealing firmly with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, and overhauling its stultifying and voluminous labor code in order, he said, to generate more jobs.

“We are in the world,” Mr. Macron said. “France is not a closed country.”


Ms. Le Pen depicted a France with a “total collapse of our industries,” preyed upon by Islamist extremists, demanding ever more government protection from economic vicissitudes and urgently needing to close its borders. “I’m the candidate of that France that we love, who will protect our frontiers, who will protect us from savage globalization,” she said at the outset.
“You defend private interests,” Ms. Le Pen sneered. “And behind that there is social ruin.”

Mr. Macron replied evenly, “What’s extraordinary is that your strategy is simply to say a lot of lies and propose nothing to help the country.” He pointed out the weaknesses in her generous spending plans, noting the lack of revenue-raising measures to back them. “France and the French deserve better,” he said. “Don’t say stupid things. You are saying a lot of them.”


Some of the sharpest exchanges came over terrorism, which polls show is a major preoccupation for the French. Ms. Le Pen cast herself as tougher on the issue, reeling off a series of antiterrorism measures — experts have suggested that they are either impractical or ineffective — and saying Mr. Macron was a weakling on security. Nonetheless, it is one of her signature issues, always drawing a thunderous response when she invokes it at rallies. “You are for laxism,” Ms. Le Pen said.




Bristling, Mr. Macron pointed out the impracticality of expelling the thousands of people who are in the government’s so-called S-files because they are considered to constitute some potential danger to the country’s security. “The S-files are just information files,” Mr. Macron said. “You can be an S-filer merely for having crossed paths with a jihadist.”

“You’ve got to be much more surgical than Ms. Le Pen,” he added. “What you are proposing, as usual, is merely powder,” he said, pointing out that as a member of the European Parliament, Ms. Le Pen voted repeatedly against antiterrorism measures.


She dismissed these criticisms, as she did the entire European Union project. Under her, she said, “French laws will be superior to laws given out by some commissioner whose name we don’t even know.”

Mr. Macron posited a diametrically opposed view, insisting that France’s place was in a stronger Europe that could stand up to Mr. Putin’s Russia and President Trump’s United States. Ms. Le Pen’s idea is that “we’re going to leave Europe because the others can make it, but we can’t,” he said. “In the face of this spirit of defeat, I am for the spirit of conquest, because France has always succeeded.”

Savanna Tomlinson: Racist Of The Year.

As a Caucasian, I am deeply offended by black folks playing at being white. I don't walk around in blackface, so why must insensitive racists like this girl pretend to be like me?

This country will forever be divided if ignorant little boys and girls think this sort of thing is funny. I feel sorry for her mother. She is to be pitied because her baby girl turned out to be a hate-filled monster. I'm guessing Savanna is graduating from some Government Indoctrination Center disguised as a public high school where fostering hatred of white people is job one.

From The Grapevine:

UPDATE: My mom is furious that I put that as my quote LMAO

Instead of posting a typically trite aphorism or stale maxim, Savanna Tomlinson just broke the internet with what may be the funniest yearbook quote ever.

The 17-year-old senior at Treasure Coast High School in Port St. Lucie, Fla., wanted to leave something memorable next to her graduation photo, so she wrote, “Anything is possible when you sound Caucasian on the phone.”

According to BuzzFeed, Savanna heard the quote from someone who claims he got free plane tickets because he sounded white when he called an airline. The post immediately went viral, and Savanna says that she has received tons of feedback—mostly positive.

But one person who didn’t appreciate Savanna’s joke is her mom.

Maybe Savanna’s mother wanted her to leave something thoughtful and timeless ...

Or maybe she just doesn’t know how much it pays to sound white on the phone.

Trump to weaken IRS rule against church political activity | HeraldNet ...


President Donald Trump is seeking to further weaken enforcement of an IRS rule barring churches and tax-exempt groups from endorsing political candidates, in a long-anticipated executive order on religious freedom that has disappointed some of his supporters.

As he marks the National Day of Prayer at the White House Thursday, Trump is planning to sign an executive order asking the IRS to use “maximum enforcement discretion” over the regulation, known as Johnson Amendment, which applies to churches and nonprofits.

The order also promises “regulatory relief” for groups with religious objections to the preventive services requirement in the Affordable Care Act, according to a White House official. Those requirements include covering birth control and could apply to religious groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor, who have moral objections to paying for contraception.

The White House did not release the full text of the order, and it was not clear just how the pledges would be carried out. The order, which essentially would make it even less likely that a religious organization would lose its tax-exempt status because of a political endorsement, falls short of what religious conservatives expected from Trump, who won overwhelming support from evangelicals by promising to “protect Christianity” and religious freedom.


Trump hosted members of his evangelical advisory board at the White House Wednesday night and planned to meet with Roman Catholic leaders Thursday before signing the order.
Ralph Reed, a longtime evangelical leader and founder of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, said he was briefed by White House officials about the text of the executive order. Reed called the provisions an excellent “first step” in the Trump administration’s plans for protecting religious freedom.

Ralph is a well known heretical lap dog for any thing with an R next to its name.

Reed said he was “thrilled” by the language on the IRS restrictions on partisan political activity. “This administratively removes the threat of harassment,” Reed said in a phone interview. “That is a really big deal.” He said the language in the order related to the preventive care mandate will “ensure that as long as Donald Trump is president, that something like the Little Sisters of the Poor case will never happen again.”

But Gregory Baylor, senior counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian legal group that advocates for broad conscience protections, said the summary of the executive order released late Wednesday leaves Trump’s campaign promises to people of faith unfulfilled. Baylor said directing the IRS not to enforce limits on political speech, while leaving the restrictions in place, still gives too much discretion to IRS agents. And Baylor called the promised “regulatory relief” from the birth control coverage requirement “disappointingly vague.”

INSTANT TRANSLATION: The prods' orange messiah is a liar and a fraud and about as Christian as Goebbels was.



Mark Silk, a professor at Trinity College in Connecticut who writes on religious freedom, called the actions described by the White House “very weak tea,” especially compared to the draft religious freedom executive order that was leaked earlier this year, That document contained sweeping provisions on conscience protection for faith-based ministries, schools and federal workers across an array of agencies. “It’s gestural as far as I can tell,” Silk said.

Trump promised to “totally destroy” the law prohibiting the political activities, known as the Johnson Amendment, when he spoke in February at the National Prayer Breakfast, a high-profile Washington event with faith leaders, politicians and dignitaries. Fully abolishing the regulation would take an act of Congress, but Trump can direct the IRS not to enforce the prohibitions.

The White House official, who was not authorized to discuss the issue publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity, told reporters Wednesday night that the order will direct the IRS to use “maximum enforcement discretion” over the rule. The official insisted on anonymity despite criticism from president himself of the media’s use of anonymous sources.

The regulation, named for then-Sen. Lyndon Johnson, was put into force in 1954 and prohibited partisan political activity for churches and other tax-exempt organizations. The policy still allows a wide range of advocacy on political issues, but in the case of houses of worship, it bars electioneering and outright political endorsements from the pulpit. The rule has rarely been enforced.

The IRS does not make public its investigations in such cases, but only one church is known to have lost its tax-exempt status as a result of the prohibition. The Church at Pierce Creek in Conklin, New York, was penalized for taking out newspaper ads telling Christians they could not vote for Bill Clinton in the 1992 presidential election. Even so, some religious leaders have argued the rule has a chilling effect on free speech, and have advocated for years for repeal.

While Trump’s action on the Johnson Amendment aims to please religious conservatives, some oppose any action that would weaken the policy.

In a February survey of evangelical leaders conducted by the National Association of Evangelicals, which represents churches from about 40 denominations, 89 percent said pastors should not endorse political candidates from the pulpit. Nearly 100 clergy and faith leaders from across a range of denominations sent a letter last month to congressional leaders urging them to uphold the regulation. They said the IRS rule protects houses of worship and religious groups from political pressure.

Hell, we'd be lucky if the only thing wrong with A Cockjerk Orange is disordered sexual desire.

Well, maybe. All sins are related, after all. Sneaking around and fellating other world leaders begets lying and lying begets pride and pride begets...get it?


From Washington's other newspaper:

Colbert is silent after facing #firecolbert backlash over Trump joke ...



President Trump has, for months, been the target of Stephen Colbert’s pointed jokes and mockery.

But many on social media believe the “Late Show” host went too far Monday night in making an oral-sex joke regarding Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

#FireColbert was trending on Twitter Wednesday morning. There’s a new Twitter account called @firecolbert. Its first tweet: “It’s time to #FireColbert! It’s time he be removed from CBS. Let your voice be heard! #Boycott all of Stephen Colbert’s advertisers.” There’s also a new website, firecolbert.com.

The anger from Trump supporters was over a series of jokes that Colbert unloaded in the last two minutes of his monologue on Monday night in reaction to how the president dealt with CBS News political director John Dickerson.


Here are some of them:

“Mr. Trump, your presidency, I love your presidency. I call it “Disgrace the Nation.”

“Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine.”

That is worse than unfunny. It is ignorant. Skinheads want to be bald. Somebody needs to be fired for that one.

“You have more people marching against you than cancer.”

“You talk like a sign language gorilla who got hit in the head.”

Poor gorilla. Where are the PETA clowns when we need them? Primate-on-primate crime is not funny.

And here’s the joke that has angered many:

“In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c— holster.”

I think the word he used was "cock", which is often a euphemism for "penis", which is the primary male sexual organ, albeit decreasingly so. [How the hell does Big Rooster let us get away with that?]

I'm not hip like ol' Stevie [I know that's probably "homophobic" too, whatever the hell "homophobic" is supposed to mean. Like, technically, it means "fear of self" which describes all fascists. But then again, "gay" means happy, which the practitioners of non-Euclidean sex definitely are not. Why do fascists screw with innocent words? Because it works.] but from all accounts it appears that Czarina Putinesca's pudenda is more like a pop gun than a .44 revolver.

The thing that is really upsetting is that an unfunny left-fascist moron can get laughs from his left-fascist audience by calling the right-fascist Orange Messiah a homosexual. Why do sodomites put up with this? I guess being treated like worthless perverts is ok when your political "friends" do it.

Or maybe they are just into being abused. I understand that's a thing.

What if my earlier speculation is correct and Clumpy The Clown is really, really into overcompensating dicktaters and "strongmen"? Then it is hate speech against the differentially turned-on.

Maybe if that tiny psycho-ghoul from North Korea puts on a pair of leather chaps and memorizes a few lines from some homoerotic snuff films, he'll get to keep oppressing his people indefinitely.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
