Chief Justice George Soros ruled yesterday that the “Thank You Tax,” payable to the Clinton Foundation, is “a perfectly constitutional response” to the second round of the coronavirus pandemic.
The other eight justices of the court were declared “non-essential” and sent home last week.
“It’s not like it’s going into my own pocket,” said President Hillary Clinton. “I only get just 5% of whatever the foundation takes in. That’s only 5% more than some deplorable out there!”
The “Thank You Tax” must be paid on any medicine, medical treatment, masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, or testing having to do with the coronavirus, now called Trump’s Damned Virus (officially renamed such last week by Congress). It must also be paid along with any purchase of food, clothing, or household items made by Republicans–“since it’s their party’s fault that we got this virus,” said Speaker of the House Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Helping someone who’s poor and needy is a Christian duty. Helping some jihad johnnies get a foothold in America is criminally suicidal.
The Baptist Press called the reports–most recently posted at Breitbart.com–“elaborate conspiracy theories [that} date back at least six years.”
I don’t want to believe that any church takes money from, and lends support to any agenda of, George Soros, an avowed enemy of Christian America.
I won’t go into the complexities of the rumors here. I’m not up to it. Suffice it to say that these matters need to be thoroughly investigated by real investigators, not puppets for one side or the other. In the meantime, I think we ought to take the Southern Baptists’ denial at face value and give them every benefit of the doubt–as we would hope to receive, were we falsely accused of any wrongdoing.
Because buddying up with Soros, no matter how you slice it, is wrongdoing.
P.S.–By the way, it wouldn’t surprise me to discover that Soros himself, and his henchmen, started these rumors just to hurt Christians. He’s perfectly capable of it.
What? No more funds for Gender Studies? You’ve got to be kidding!
You’ve got to give the Far Left Crazy credit: owning the media, they don’t let it sit unused. They use it each and every day, to try to lure normal people into folly.
Today I couldn’t run a search without getting, on the Bing search page, a come-on for an article with the bloviating title, Viktor Orban’s War on the Intellect, from the Far Left Crazy rag, The Atlantic.
The author’s hysteria was showing: “Like Pol Pot or Josef Stalin–” oh, please–“Orban dreams of liquidating the intelligentsia…”
How, just how, was Orban, the president of Hungry, going to do that?
Why, by withdrawing public funds from universities! By refusing to pay for any more Gender Studies degree programs! That’s how he’s gonna be “liquidating the intelligentsia.” Not a dry eye in the house…
Where is it written that any country has to lavish public funding upon a whole class of academic nonentities whose only function is to serve as a Greek chorus of yes-men to the Far Left Crazy? In our country, that would be the Democrat Party. In Europe, assorted globalists. Same thing. And putting a stop to the gravy train is the same as “liquidating” them?
But see, Orban is the bad guy and his efforts to stop wasting money on the universities is only the latest manifestation of the world-wide struggle between “human rights” and “nationalism.” What bunk. This is a fine example of a false dichotomy. Dude, you has to choose! You can have either human rights, or your own country–not both. Only a bunch of college professors would think we couldn’t see through that. But sane people know that having their own countries is protection against the kind of incredible tyranny that would accompany any global government. The dichotomy is not only false, but has an evil intent.
The author laments President Orban’s effort to “chase” Central European University out of Hungary. It’s a private university owned and operated by rent-a-riot king George Soros–the Jabba the Hutt of globalism. The villain who wants to “remake” nations according to his own authoritarian dreams. Our nation, too–big-time. But we are here asked to believe that President Orban is the bad guy and Soros, that spider, the good guy. It is profoundly insulting, to be asked such a thing.
What Orban is doing in Hungary would be a very, very good thing to be doing here! He is pulling public money out of universities. We ought to do the same!
Do these self-anointed fat-heads honestly think we can’t do without them? Let them put whatever they think they have to offer on the open market, and see who buys it.
I’m ashamed that I was once a “journalist,” a newspaper reporter and editor, back in the day. To be sure, in the 1970s it was still an honorable profession in which we who practiced it took pride. Things that are routinely done today, and called “journalism,” would have once moved real reporters to contempt. We would have laughed off the press table anybody who behaved like that. But nobody did.
But of course the newest thing in journalism, the newest technique, is to write up the story before you do the interviews, before you see the video, before you have any of the information–because as long as the story fits the “narrative”–modern-day nooze-talk for big fat lie–you’ve done your job.
This is what happened in two notoriously shameful examples of narrative journalism–the Covington High School kids and the Jussie Smollett case. In both, the alleged journalists in the nooze media–along with Democrat politicians and assorted Hollywood losers–dove in headfirst: only to discover, quite soon afterward, that the story didn’t happen like the way they were reporting it. They didn’t care.
Once upon a time, even reporters who were total wastes of space in their personal lives still tried to live up to standards–standards like accuracy, thoroughness, truth-telling, fair play, that simply don’t exist anymore.
The result is a mainstream nooze media that’s unworthy of our trust: we know they’re lying to us. I call it the Walter Duranty school of journalism, after the New York Times reporter who won a Pulitzer for being Josef Stalin’s cheerleader and public relations agent.
Remember Dan Rather and his “fake but accurate” story of George W. Bush and the National Guard? Even as late as 2004, a big nooze gasbag like Rather could (and did!) actually lose his job for bamboozling the public and getting caught. That was only 15 years ago!
The speed with which our mainstream “journalism” has deteriorated is a frightening thing to contemplate.
We’d love to check this story, but there are so many unanswered questions. What was this scientist’s name? Where did he report his findings? How does anybody wind up with a pet jellyfish? I mean, I’m sure they’re nice and all that, but I never heard of anyone keeping a jellyfish for a pet. What would you name it? Oh–and what was this guy doing, hanging on to the “degraded body” of a jellyfish for three months?
But wait, there’s more!
Scientists at Harvard have discovered a “DNA switch that controls genes for whole-body regeneration,” suggesting it might someday lead to people being able to re-grow lost arms or legs. Uh-uh. They have discovered this gene in worms. Worms are great at growing stuff back. It can also be found in human beings, but we’re not so great at growing stuff back. Not so much as a finger.
Even so, regeneration is the great humanist hope of immortality–that, or loading your mind into a robot. Once they work out the details, George Soros and Nancy Pelosi can stick around and screw up our country for another 700 years. No corrupt rich person will ever have to die!
I think Robert Silverberg wrote a science fiction novel about that, back in the 1950s, but I’m running too late to look it up.
The first thing that greeted me this morning was an email from a Newswithviews reader–one of those emails carrying the cheerful message of “We’re doomed, we’re cooked, the bad guys totally win, the ones you thought were good guys, they’re the bad guys, too,” and so on.
I get a lot of messages like that, embracing–and, it would seem, trying hard to pass it on to the next poor guy–a doctrine of despair. “Game over, man! And it never was a game in the first place, we lost before it even started!” Woe is us.
And he goes on to tell me that everything and anything we try to do is futile because every single thing that happens in the world is totally planned and micro-managed for the benefit of [anti-semitic adjective deleted] “bankers” and the like–all-knowing, ubiquitous, all-powerful… and yet curiously unable to conceal their subtle machinations from Joe Blow on the Internet.
It’s true that there’s always some gavone, or group of gavones, trying to rule the world–or at least as big a chunk of it as they can grab. That’s a dynamic of history. Once upon a time it was the likes of Caesar, Genghis Khan, or Hitler. They tried to do it by force of arms: mostly someone kills them before their career is quite over. Nowadays it’s dorks in suits who want to set up a world government with themselves in charge, and think they can do it with Science instead of armies. Give us absolute power over every minute aspect of your lives, and we’ll save you from Climbit Change.
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. (Psalm 2:1-4)
God is laughing at these globalist big shots! They are, in His eyes, less than a bucketful of tadpoles.
True, it’s not so funny for us, when some wannabe master of the world starts a war or a famine, and a lot of us die. But there is no conqueror who ever stood alone. A crowd has to march behind him if he’s going to get anywhere. And they all have crowds of supporters–until the crowd turns against the leader and starts pulling down his statues.
To ascribe total power, omniscience, and omni-competence to people whom God is laughing at seems to me both unwise and impious. They do not know everything, they do not control everything, their plans are as full of holes as Swiss cheese, and God always smacks them down before they can finish their work. That these individuals and their pals are rich, powerful, and evil is true. That their fate is to be cast into Hell is also true.
The only right to world government belongs to Jesus Christ: and God the Father is jealous of His right.
By sitting around moping, giving up, throwing in the towel, giving way to despair, we only help the villains do more harm than they could have done if they’d been vigorously opposed from the beginning. I mean, really–look at them! The best they can do is Hillary Clinton? George Soros? Crazy Joe Biden?
Why aren’t you laughing?
It’s true that wicked leaders in the West have, in our own lifetime, managed to debase and corrupt their countries more than any of us would have thought possible. Those things were accomplished by very small minorities working fanatically, tirelessly, single-mindedly to get what they wanted. They weren’t more intelligent than us; they just worked harder.
Learn the lesson. And let’s prove we’ve learned it by annihilating Democrats in the next elections.
Money is pouring in from George Soros (of course). And get this. They call it the “Campaign for Smart Justice.” There are two words you should be afraid of when liberals invoke them, and they are both in that title: “smart” and “justice.” Trust liberals to give “justice” a bad name.
You’d think Democrats would be ashamed for their party to become known as the galloping felon party; but liberals are incapable of feeling shame. They are eager to mobilize an army of ex-cons: and, as one observer remarked, although it would clearly be against the law to do so, not much would stop them from wheeling the voting machines into the prison and allowing jailed felons to cast ballots.
The corruption is as deep as the sea and as high as the Himalayas. It wells out from the sinful human heart, stirred up by Satan. With its ceaseless promises of free stuff, social justice (whatever that is), and lots of fornication and never any adverse consequences, humanist liberalism is the welcome mat on the doorstep of Hell.
Only the sovereign power of God can and will defeat it: Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the cross, already has defeated it.
But it has pleased God to invite us to serve Him. We must not let the darkness overwhelm us: just about impossible, on our own; but the Lord will give us strength and courage, if we ask Him for it.
