Howler of the Day! Trump’s Spiritual Adviser: Before His Election, Trump Watched Nothing but “Gospel TV”

Politics • Views: 15,938

YouTube

I don’t usually like to start a post with “wow” but wow. This is an absolutely terrifying look at the cynical, opportunistic “prosperity gospel” liars who are backing and advising Donald Trump.

Kenneth Copeland is Trump’s official “spiritual adviser.” He says Trump can swear and cuss all he likes, because he’s the president.

He also says that before Trump was elected he watched nothing but “gospel TV… he didn’t watch anything else.” But now he “doesn’t have time to watch gospel television.”

Is this delusion or dishonesty? I doubt even someone like Copeland actually believes Trump was ever a “gospel TV” addict.

rightwingwatch.org

In this clip, prosperity gospel preacher and Trump spiritual adviser Kenneth Copeland blames Trump’s swearing on the fact that he’s too busy to watch Christian television, but also defends Trump by saying that since he’s president, “he can talk any way he wants to talk.”

So did ‘grab them by the pussy’ get special dispensation because it was spoken by a man who would someday fail himself into the presidency? There seems to be a lot of loopholes.

As much as I think learning kanji is a pain in the ass, the number of homonyms for some morae (syllables are the English equivalent) are so incredible that it’s just *necessary*.

It always surprises people to hear that Japanese with 2000 characters is much harder to read than Chinese with 8000+.

Mild weather in eastern Nebraska, as seventy mile per hour winds caused fifty thousand Omaha Public Power district to lose power this morning.

More than 50,000 OPPD customers lost power Monday morning when a front carrying strong winds ripped through eastern Nebraska.

About 32,700 customers in Douglas County still were without power as of 1:30 p.m., according to OPPD’s power outage map. Another 3,600 customers were without power in Washington County, and about 1,170 customers in Sarpy County were without power.

A strong storm system developed around Tekamah and Fremont and quickly intensified Monday morning, said meteorologist David Eastlack of the National Weather Service office in Valley. The system’s strength pushed out huge wind gusts to the south and east, which rolled through the Omaha area, he said.

Winds of between 55 mph and 70 mph blew through Omaha, Eastlack said. One report of 70 mph winds came in from near Standing Bear Lake in northwest Omaha, he said.

There is a 5:30 “news conference” on the president’s daily schedule. He got a taste of having ladies and gentlemen in waiting being present over the weekend. I wonder who’ll be roped into being the adoring crowd today. I have visions of Mark Meadows storming through the West Wing at 5:15 screaming “GET OUT THERE” to staff and visitors alike.

Religion has always been inherently political. At least within western traditions. The Hebrew texts/Old Testament was long on laws for the society that wrote it. Despite the retconning post crucifixion, Jesus was clearly preaching about creating a kingdom on earth. And Mohammed did actually create a government. Go back further, and the fusion of religion and politics was fairly overt among the Romans and Greek empires (though polytheism, by its nature was more accommodating of different faith traditions, from what I’ve read). Following the fall of the Romans, the rise of the Roman Catholic Church and then the protestant reformation along with the creation of state churches throughout Europe.

Fall sports were supposed to be the salvation of the Repubs, the usual distraction of watching men in heavy padding beating the snot out of each other providing the ciruses in absence of bread. But the warning was issued months ago that for that to happen, there needed to be sufficient testing and safety measures. And those never materialized, so the gladiators will not fight.

The (apparently imminent) decision not to play, at least for the Big 10, is being made with pretty limited player input. I am certain that some don’t want to play (and a number have opted out), but I’d suspect that there are lots that do want to play. I don’t think that can be the only factor in making this decision, but it is relevant and the players need a legit seat at the table.

Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown (D) advised Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) to “politely decline” any offer to be presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate.

Brown wrote that the vice presidency would likely hinder any further political ambitions for Harris.

“Historically, the vice presidency has often ended up being a dead end. For every George H.W. Bush, who ascended from the job to the presidency, there’s an Al Gore, who never got there,” Brown wrote in an op-ed for the San Francisco Examiner.

When you receive endless toxicity from people who call themselves Christians you really get contemptuous of the whole scam.

When you are a kid and Christian kids insult you and try to convert you to their cult you get contemptuous of the whole scam.

Re: Copeland’s chiseling the taxpayers:

“…one of the tax benefits bestowed on ministers is the “parsonage allowance,” which allows ministers to exclude the rental value of their homes from their taxable income. This statute was adopted in 1954 out of concern for clergy, most of whom were making less than $2,500 annually, according to the Committee. Although a lot has changed since 1954, this tax provision has not, and today’s millionaire and billionaire televangelists are still able to take advantage of it. The Committee reported that some churches allegedly ordain friends, family members, and employees solely for the purpose of getting them the income tax exclusion. Currently, there is no limit on the number of residences for which a minister can receive a parsonage allowance, meaning a minister can exclude the rental value of a second home or a vacation home from his or her taxable income.

According to the Committee, Copeland’s church provides the Copelands with an 18,000 square-foot mansion that was valued at over $6 million in 2008. It has two three-car garages and three boat slips. Its doors, Gloria Copeland brags, come from a castle. John Copeland confirmed the value of the house and added that their parsonage is also used for housing guest ministers, television taping, rest and relaxation, and includes offices for Kenneth and Gloria Copeland. An insider told the Committee that Randy and Paula White enjoy a $3.5 million condo in Trump Tower in New York City, in addition to their $2.6 million home in Tampa, Florida. Their church allegedly pays a “housing allowance” for both residences.

re: #31 Quoth the raven, Covfefe.

I’m sending you a hug, even though I am not remotely religious. That is the fault of right wing evangelical end times Christianity with some Amway thrown in, just for fucking delightfulness. So I have no family because of it.And it’s pissed me off at ALL religion and religious peoples a lot. However, many really amazing Christian people have come across my path over the years and I have mad respect for people who really do try to use Jesus and his teachings to make the world better. To be brave and kind and honest and caring. I hold organized religion responsible for a lot of crap(it’s really the humans in charge I hold to the fire), but I also respect those who believe and value the teachings as a guide to a better world. Nothing wrong with that. It’s when religion begins damaging and hurting that people put up their defenses. Being one of those damaged by religion I understand the vitriol and anger.

re: #48 Belafon

thehill.com

If the stats are one-to-one, that makes her odds 50%, which is actually better than probably will be if she doesn’t become the first female VP. I don’t think Brown fully grasps the dynamics right now.

In the modern era (post-FDR), former VPs as nominees:

Nixon lost in 1960, won in 1968.
Humphery lost in 1968, ended up going back to the Senate
LBJ assumed the office after Kennedy’s assassination, so doesn’t really apply
Ford assumed the office after Nixon’s resignation, so also doesn’t really apply
Mondale got trounced in 1984
GHW Bush won in 1988
Quayle ran for president in 2000 for about 15 minutes
Gore lost in 2000
Cheney retired
Biden won the nomination in 2020 (after not running in 2016)

The tricky parts of this calculus are: will Biden actually only serve one term? What happens, despite the odds, if Trump pulls out a victory? What other future political ambitions does Harris have?

On that last point, before she ran for the Senate, there was some talk that she was eyeing the governor’s office here in California. Newsom is up for re-election in 2022, so realistically, the earliest she’d be able to seek that office is 2026 (unless Newsom’s approval falls out between now and 2022).

I’ll admit I would miss it, if it ends up being canceled, or being significantly scaled back.

But it’s entertainment value takes a back seat to everyone’s safety.

And I’ll admit the nature of the business gives me pause, the push to win at all costs can be hazardous. I have no doubt it’s a rough life for many of the “student athletes” who are pushed by their coaches, friends, and probably even family members to risk life and limb in the slim hope that there will be a pot of gold in the NFL at the end of the rainbow.

I don’t know how much sway he still has in California politics, but Willie Brown was once a giant of California politics. Long time Speaker of the Assembly (and main target of the pro-term limits groups back in the 90s); then mayor of SF.

I will agree with re: #48 Belafon that Brown might be seeing the trees instead of the forest.

I have had a long struggle with organized religion. Won’t go into detail, but our parish priest wound up doing 3 years at a state prison for what he did to us.

So I can’t really get on board with any religion that requires you to go to a building on a specific day, chant the magic words with everyone else, and put your money into a brass plate.

I’ve met some amazing priests around the world. Also monks, shaman, imams, etc. The good ones are plugged into a different voltage, and they are a force for good in this flawed world.

The bad ones who use religion and doctrine as a weapon to amass power and afflict those they are bigoted against, can burn & thrash in the blackness of blacknesses, if such a thing exists.

re: #72 Khal Wimpo (not drinking damn fish tank cleaner)

I love college sports, but the system is incredibly fucked up, and has become even more so in the last 20 years. Part of the problem is, I suspect that a lot of universities and conferences have two sets of books. Sort of like what happens in the pros when there’s a threat of lockout or strike, the owners will offer to open their books to show how they’re losing money and the players will inevitably ask to see the “real” books.

For example, I highly doubt that all these conference television networks are just showing live sporting events that are losing money as some sort of public good. Especially if it’d be more “cost effective” to show reruns of football or basketball games.

Another problem is the money/power disparity between the big conferences and the smaller conferences.

It always surprises people to hear that Japanese with 2000 characters is much harder to read than Chinese with 8000+.


Japanese: nin, jin, hito, ri, kiyo, sane, ji, tami, to, ne, hiko, hitoshi, futo, fumi, muto, me, …
Mandarin: rén

Yeah. That. But Chinese characters (hanzi) grew with the language, while Japanese imported hanzi (more than once!) and insisted on bringing in both Chinese and Japanese pronunciations each time.

Since you mentioned hanzi, it’s worth mentioning that the postwar Japanese kanji reform does not match either the old style hanzi from before WWII or the modernization imposed by the Communist Party. It’s not completely out there but there are differences.

Saban is a paternalistic power hungry asshole. Has been for a long time. One of the reasons he allegedly left the NFL was because players had as much, if not more, power than him. Then there was the time he was on an ESPN special about paying players and when Jay Bilas asked why players couldn’t have agents (pointing out that everyone on stage, including coaches had agents) Saban’s response was basically “because they might tell them that their interests aren’t the same as the team’s interests.”

Those decisions are still in flux, but I can tell you what I’m advocating for is miles and miles away from here,” Meadows said, referring to the White House complex in a pre-taped interview that aired on Gray TV’s “Full Court Press with Greta Van Susteren” Sunday morning.

Trump dupes the press, by Judd Legum

On Sunday, Trump appeared at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and announced a series of executive actions he alleged would address the continued economic devastation of the coronavirus pandemic.

The first impression the media delivered to the public was of a decisive leader, breaking through Congressional gridlock, and delivering desperately needed aid to the American people. That was the story told by headlines in the nation’s largest wire services, including the Associated Press:

re: #36 Mike Lamb

The (apparently imminent) decision not to play, at least for the Big 10, is being made with pretty limited player input. I am certain that some don’t want to play (and a number have opted out), but I’d suspect that there are lots that do want to play. I don’t think that can be the only factor in making this decision, but it is relevant and the players need a legit seat at the table.

I saw one guy, a potential candidate for the Heisman Trophy, lead a hashtag #LetUsPlay on Twitter yesterday. A handful of guys are very unhappy that their chances to strut their stuff on national TV and burnish their stats before moving to the NFL are being canceled with the season.

But what about the rest of us?

No, in my home town Italian catholics were on the edge between black and white, only becoming white in the 1960s. Lots of curly black hair, you know.

In 1950s Pittsburgh both we Irish and the Italians were White. We just didn’t like them at all. But at least they weren’t WASPs.

(BTW, Jews were never anything but White. We had issues with them, too.)

Governor Pritzker Signs Senate Bill 471 to Expand Workplace Protections

To directly protect workers in retail, the law adds a penalty for assaulting or battering a retail worker who is conveying public health guidance, such as requiring patrons to wear face-coverings or promoting social distancing. This provision sends the message that it’s vitally important for workers to be both respected and protected while serving on the front lines.

The law also increases paid disability leave for any injury that occurs after March 9, 2020 by 60 days for firefighters, law enforcement, and paramedics whose recovery was hindered by COVID-19.

More specifically, eligible employees include:

- Any part-time or full-time State correctional officer or any other full or part-time employee of the Department of Corrections

- Any full or part-time employee of the Prisoner Review Board

- Any full or part-time employee of the Department of Human Services working within a penal institution or a State mental health or developmental disabilities facility operated by the Department of Human Services

- Any full-time law enforcement officer or full-time firefighter

Senate Bill 471 takes effect immediately.

Modern hardware doesn’t allow you to lock someone in a room (assuming it’s installed correctly). Unless there are independent deadbolts. Fire codes/egress rules/ADA require that all doors be openable from the inside with a single motion. Granted, the hardware at the White House may predate those rules.

“There is no going back”
Thanks to Trump, Bernie, and COVID-19, a potential Biden administration is under pressure to rethink its approach to the rest of the world—and to save the State Department, where “the quisling in charge” is “not interested in doing anything that requires more than 20 seconds.” by Abigail Tracy, Vanity Fair

In corners of the State Department and embassies abroad, diplomats are playing a quiet waiting game. They “are keeping their heads down and waiting for [Joe] Biden to rescue them, rather than engaging with a Secretary who is seen as pursuing an ideology alien to the Department and the Service,” a former ambassador told me. With Donald Trump’s polling looking shaky, literally thousands of foreign policy experts have glommed onto his Democratic challenger, advising the Biden campaign in the hopes of being welcomed back into the fold if he manages to win the White House. But even under a potential Biden presidency, there are pressing questions about what shape U.S. foreign policy might take—questions that are growing all the more urgent as the Democratic Party platform comes into focus. As a second former ambassador put it, “From the foreign policy standpoint, absolutely there is no going back.”

re: #253 🌹UOJB!

Well, there are always earthquakes in that part of Imperial county.

The swarm may be related to movement of water under pressure underground. There are “mud volcanoes” nearby, barely qualify as a hot spring.

The continental crust is relatively quite shallow in that part of the lower Colorado desert.

While the San Andreas is a slip fault, it must also be remembered that other things are going on here. As North America slowly creeps southwestward over the Pacific plate, the Pacific plate is going northwest. That northwest motion is why the slip fault occurs. But also occurring is that thinning of the crust (in a great part of the western region of the US). Also, as evident by recent volcano activity in southern AZ and northern Sonora, water subducted is really making the whole region dynamic.

Me… I’m just hoping for a lava flow to lighten up 2020.

Just found out that our dentist, who we’ve been going to for years, who lets us do ridiculous small payments a month to allow us to get the shit we needed done, doesn’t take medicare.

Fucked.

Maybe not. Check out Medicare Advantage plans because several of them include dental coverage.

Medicare doesn’t do anything for normal dental services. It might for surgery.

Or vision, unless disease or surgery.

It would have been funny if someone pointed it out to him and he doubled down on it out of obstinacy.

This is NOT the first time he’s said that. He has no freaking idea what he’s talking about.

Not. One. Clue.

I just ran into that issue too with my therapist. Therapy is covered, but my therapist won’t accept Medicare patients. I’ve been checking out all of my other doctors and so far I haven’t hit any other walls.

Ha! I usually take the dog to the local Uni that is closed in order to avoid other dogs. But yesterday I took her to the local middle school grounds. She immediately found a huge mound of fresh grass clippings and dragged me to it. She jumped in and started squirming, so I let go of the leash and let her have at it. I wish I had had my phone. It looked like she was experiencing waves of euphoria.

I’m not sure which mapping service it is but, for at least a decade now, I’ve had to tell frustrated parents and kids that “Yes, indeed there are la crosse and baseball fields in the park in our neighborhood. However, they are not at the end of this cul de sac and you have to either drive two miles around or swim the third mile across the lake. By the way, your game started five minutes ago.”

My dog does that too, but only on really thick, luscious, carpet like lawn. Which means she doesn’t do it at home…

She really loves the patch of grass in front of the local dunkin donuts though.

I’m thankful for all of the people turning against Trump, but I tend to be afraid of the advice of the recently turned. A lot of them tend to be zealots.

“…The measures that the Proposed Rule seeks to implement serve no public health purpose, nor do they advance our country’s national security. Rather, they are draconian and contrary to our country’s moral fabric and longstanding tradition of providing safe haven to the persecuted,” wrote Council 119, the union representing asylum officers and other U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) employees. “Simply put, the Proposed Rule serves no purpose other than to advance the Administration’s political objective to shut down the U.S. asylum program—at whatever cost to human life.”

But I got a feeling all the candidates are heading to Wilmington as a show of unity…

almost makes you wonder if there’s some sort of Lives deductable threshold that has yet to have been met.

Maybe he thinks the virus is like killbots and has a kill limit. So he’ll throw poor people and minorities at it until the limit is reached and the virus shuts down.

I didn’t listen to that thing talk in teh video, but did he just refer to humanity as “they”. As if he wasn’t part of that group?
