Trump’s history with women surfacing

See http://cannonfire.blogspot.com/

Joseph Canon has a post up about one of Trump’s escort services with a screen shot of the website. Could this be one of the reasons why Trump hasn’t released his tax returns?

Then cannonfire has a post about the Bernie Bots violence Nevada Democratic convention. The Bernie Bots are the major reason I will never ever vote for Sanders. Plus the guy isn’t a Democrat. The worse part is the terroristic threats the chair of the convention is receiving from the Bernie Bots. Bernie is fine with the behavior of his followers – making him a proven misogynistic leader.

What Joseph Canon says about Sanders and his violent misogynistic Bots – I agree.

Go read cannonfire blog.

Sanders or Trump I don’t know who is worse. Sanders the messianic cult leader or Trump, the cult leader for the worship of Trump’s ego.

Trump is a raging manic who needs to get back on his meds. Could he be bipolar? Look at his last few incoherent, rambling rants. Especially his rant about the CEO of Amazon.com. Trump’s own words. Something is wrong with that guy. He is the ultimate privileged white guy.

Ralph Nader – shut up

Really who cares what your opinion is? You have the nerve to support Trump – or appear to support that bag of wind?

For the youngsters out there – here is a history lesson.

GW Bush “won” in 2000 because old Ralphie decided to split the vote with an ego run for the White House. 40,000 votes in Florida and Governor Jeb Bush, plus a political decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Nader’s ego is responsible for a whole lot of misery in the Middle East. Assuming, of course, that Al Gore would have resisted the urge to lie the U.S. in a bloody war. The lie, of course, that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.

Nader’s ego also destroyed a car called the Corvair. An excellent car according to former owners of th U.S. made car. But that is a story for another day.

Nader’s opinions and judgement is faulty – in other words – Nader STFU.

Trump? You’re kidding? Right?

So Trump, showing that he is an evil and vile hater has emerged as the 2016 standard bearer of the GOP.

In the past few weeks and months I’ve been reading up on Trump and let the words he spews and tweets tell me who he is. He is largely unchanged from the teenage brat – the very rich guy who went after all the pretty girls. His objective was for the bragging rights – he screwed the most girls ever.

Think about this – he is the product of a private school education. He is also stupid. I saw his kind before, when I was in college. The rich boys who bought term papers, had others take their exams. The rich boys who spent their nights playing.

In the next few days I will link to articles by really intelligent people who can explain Trump’s stupidity. Trump is also a mean narcissistic personality – he doesn’t give a damn about his white middle class voters. This guy hates everyone.

When I was a little kid, growing up in Hawaii, President Eisenhower came for a visit. He rode through downtown Honolulu, schools bussed students from around the island to stand along the parade route. What a thrill for students. I still remember the big, long black car. Back then the car was open and we could see President Eisenhower and he wife. They were almost close enough to touch.

Those days are long gone. Now we have an orange alien running for President. A rich playboy who has never grown up. His money can buy anything, and he can get away with racism, misogynistic hate speech that can move the mobs to violence.

Then there is Senator Sanders on the Democratic side who also has his mob – ready and willing to slander and disrupt Clinton’s rallies. Bots are bots – Sanders or Trump’s – nasty and vile sexist pigs.

Prosperity theology or doctrine

Many mega churches (2,000 or more members) and are related to Pentecostals. Entertainment is a major feature of these mega churches. The preaching is upbeat and the assumption is that donations given to the church are returned 10 times. A nice round number.

One political reporter likened Trump’s style of political rallies as preaching the Prosperity doctrine. Be happy, be racist, God loves you.

Trump claims to be a devout Christian. Using this definition – perhaps he is.

Prosperity gospel

“The doctrine taught in some Christian groups that God will grant wishes to the faithful, especially those wishes involving material wealth.”

Prosperity theology (sometimes referred to as the prosperity gospel, the health and wealth gospel, or thegospel of success)[A] is a religious belief among some Christians that financial blessing is the will of God for them, and that faith, positive speech, and donations (possibly to Christian ministries) will increase one’s material wealth. Based on non-traditional interpretations of the Bible, often with emphasis on the Book of Malachi, the doctrine views the Bible as a contract between God and humans: if humans have faith in God, he will deliver his promises of security and prosperity. Confessing these promises to be true is perceived as an act of faith, which God will honor.

The doctrine emphasizes the importance of personal empowerment, proposing that it is God’s will for his people to be happy. The atonement (reconciliation with God) is interpreted to include the alleviation of sickness and poverty, which are viewed as curses to be broken by faith. This is believed to be achieved through donations of money, visualization, and positive confession, and is often taught in mechanical and contractual terms.

It was during the Healing Revivals of the 1950s that prosperity theology first came to prominence in the United States, although commentators have linked the origins of its theology to the New Thought movement which began in the 19th century. The prosperity teaching later figured prominently in the Word of Faithmovement and 1980s televangelism. In the 1990s and 2000s, it was adopted by influential leaders in theCharismatic Movement and promoted by Christian missionaries throughout the world, sometimes leading to the establishment of mega-churches. Prominent leaders in the development of prosperity theology include E. W. KenyonOral RobertsTD JakesA. A. AllenRobert TiltonT. L. OsbornJoel OsteenCreflo Dollar,Kenneth CopelandReverend Ike and Kenneth Hagin.

Churches in which the prosperity gospel is taught are often non-denominational and usually directed by a sole pastor or leader, although some have developed multi-church networks that bear similarities to denominations. Such churches typically set aside extended time to teach about giving and request donations from the congregation, encouraging positive speech and faith. Prosperity churches often teach about financial responsibility, though some journalists and academics have criticized their advice in this area as misleading.

Prosperity theology has been criticized by leaders in the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements, as well as other Christian denominations. These leaders maintain that it is irresponsible, promotes idolatry, and is contrary to scripture. Some critics have proposed that prosperity theology cultivates authoritarian organizations, with the leaders controlling the lives of the adherents. The doctrine has also become popular inSouth Korea; academics have attributed some of its success to its parallels with the traditional shamanistic culture. Prosperity theology has drawn followers from the American middle class and poor, and has been likened to the cargo cult phenomenon, traditional African religion, and black liberation theology.

That time of year again – election games

Who would have though that an extreme Narcissistic personality like Trump would be the delegate leader for the GOP nomination for President?? A year ago if a comedian had suggested that the GOP was mainlining stupid with the current field of stupids – with Trump as the leading stupid – would the audience have laughed?

The adults are on the Democratic side. So far. OMG – we have so very far to go before the November elections.

It seems clear that all the candidates are bought and paid for – it seems that no one can move up the political, without selling their soul.

Bernie Sanders gives me the hives. Mostly because of his efforts th copy Obama’s “hope and change”. That messianic garbage didn’t work with Obama and the same sort of blurry eyed zealots are drawn to the Sander’s magic wagon. The Bernie bots are like the Obots – scary.

Caucuses are not democratic. Get rid of caucuses, this is the 21st century. Little piss-ant states have too much control at the beginning.

Why is the GOP full of so much hate. The hate women – I can feel the hate – from the whole field of – how many clowns? 10 or 20? One female in the most male field, who had great difficulty with the truth. In that respect she was not much different from the zippers. What is it with the GOP and lying? Trump may be the biggest liar of the bunch. He is undoubtedly the biggest motor mouth. He reminds me of a child who will do anything for attention. It’s that streak of narcissism in Trump.

Super Tuesday coming up.

I wish I could go somewhere and hide until mid November.

“Conscientious Objector” and the SDA

Why Ben Carson is a dangerous choice for the world – part two of into the world of the SDA.

The SDA church has a history of supporting the war effort but not carrying arms to use offensively against the enemy. Desmond T. Ross joined the Army as a Conscientious Objector during WWII, he supported the war as a non-combatant medic in the role he saved lives and was awarded the metal of Honor by President Truman. Wikipedia lists two more non combatant Metal of Honor recipients – Thomas W. Bennett and Joseph G. LaPointe. Both of these men were Baptists.

During the Vietnam war era most of the SDA college age men used various deferments to avoid the draft. The Young men were encouraged to request Conscientious Objector status. I know that many of the collage age draftees from the SDA college system served as non combatants, in country some played in the General’s personal Army Band, others worked as paper pushers or medics. Some decided to carry weapons when faced with the realities of war.

As a kid I was indoctrinate into the “render unto the government” – Desmond Does example. This was rather mind blowing on one level – since I was a military brat, living on a U.S. Naval Base, my dad off fighting the cold war. He was armed and trained as a sharp shooter, by his days hunting to feed his family during the Depression. His score shooting clay pigeons near the end of his career was 99 out of 100. That is the military – guns and the military. I lived on base during most of the Vietnam war, but was against that war.

Many of the members of the Seventh Day Adventist church are ultra right-wing conservatives. Many of the members of this church support the Iraq war. Reason? End Times prophesy found in Daniel and Revelation. This is one of the classes I took while going to a Seventh Day Adventist college. So while college kids at California colleges were doing drugs – I was studying the drug addled rumblings of the last book of the Christian Bible. Ha! With a straight face the college instructor attempted to make a drug addict’s rambling sound logical. End of times, Jesus is coming soon. The Middle East or Israel is key to these e d oh time mythology.

So – returning to Dr. Ben Carson, who is an SDA and his desire to be president. NuttyYahoo would be so pleased to have his very own puppet. The right wingers – end of timers – are praying for a major war in the Middle East. Then they expect most of the Jews to convert to right wing evangelical Christian whatever. Evangelicals can’t agree on the details.

President Ben Carson with his skilled hands on that mythical read doomsday button –  NuttyYahoo standing behind him, as the real power in the Oval office.

Either this is all real – or we are all watching a really bad horror movie.

Ben Carson-no way!

First off ALL the GOP candidates currently running for the office in the white house claim to be Christian, climate change denier, anti Science, they all believe in Creation myth as told in the King James version of the Bible.

Retired Neuro surgeon Ben Carson has separated himself from the pack for several reasons. First his denial of the GOP’s war on women – telling us that it isn’t a war on women, but rather on what’s inside women. That means the “lady parts”?? I let that remark pass because it appears that female biology, physiology were never part of GOP basic education.

Over the weekend I learned an important fact that makes Carson completely unacceptable to be President of the U.S. Ben Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist – SDA. His father was a minister. Carson is an – End of Timer – the Adventist part of Seventh Day Adventist is the clue. The Adventists go to church on the Seventh Day of the week – Saturday or Sabbath. The believe that the whole Bible is the literal word of God. Their food restrictions are loosely based on the Jewish laws found in Leviticus.

In the early to mid 19th century there was a “great awakening” and new churches emerged. Preacher Miller came up with a theory that Christ would be returning to earth in 1844. Miller and his followers gathered on a hill on the appointed night and waited for Christ’s return. Of course this didn’t happen. Normally that mistake would have killed the church. But a prophet happened along, Ellen White, who through “automatic” writing from Angles who were connected to Christ – sent messages to this group of true believers. This story is told repeatedly as we go through the church and church school religious training. Outsiders who have studied the organization and history of the church give us the rest of the story – without the tireless work of a female prophet there would be no Seventh Day Adventist church. Yet the primary message of this church is misogynistic – because of the Garden of Eden and that evil bitch – Eve. The SDA church is behind the “creation Science” from the book of Genesis. All the other Evangelicals use the SDA “science” to support the rest of the “end of times” message to support their house of cards religion built on mythology. God is coming again and if we all follow the teachings (windbaggery), repent our sins and get ourselves born again then we might get to heaven.

Ellen White grew the SDA church, adding schools and colleges. Loma Linda medical University in Southern California is one of the many colleges. (My point being, that a SAD who is also a M.D., is not unusual.) But these church educated M.D. still believe in Bible mythology – thus the reason for Baboon heart transplant into a human child a few decades ago.

Back to the religious bigot and misogynistic Ben Carson. The SDA church as no women in leadership positions – the Quiverfull male/female ideal of female submission to the male head is the way the SAD church operates. Ben Carson is a hater – that’s the way males are raised. Ministers beating their wives – who can the women turn to for help? The male can do no wrong. Ben Carson’s father was a minister of that backwards, misogynistic church.

I know the SDA church. My great grandmother was a SDA, my mother was a SDA, I was raised in that culture. School, Church, College and then I walked away. I know the cultural, the people. In the U.S. most SDAs are Republicans. They loved Bush’s Iraqi War. Bring on the end times is their daily prayer. “I am sure Jesus is coming soon.” That is a common greeting between SDA members.

That said – there are also good and honest people who are SDAs. In the Caribbean one guy holds a high elected office. If I lived down there and could vote – I would vote for him and campaign for him. Ben Carson is an arrogant retired Neurosurgeon. How did he treat the women he worked with?

P.S. This word processor keeps changing SDA to SAD. Interesting.
