In an attempt to paint newly elected Dutch leader Geert Wilders as a crazy guy, Fox and other news outlets, hit Wilder over the weekend for suggesting that neighboring Arab countries take in the refugees from Gaza. Wilder is on record as wanting to close his borders and stop the influx of illegals from other nations.
Dutch right-wing politician Geert Wilders is facing condemnation from multiple Arab states after suggesting that the war between Hamas and Israel could be remedied if Palestinians are relocated to Jordan.
“Jordan is Palestine!” Wilders tweeted Saturday, linking to a Politico story that detailed how Jordan, the Palestinian Authority, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Yemen and the Arab League issued statements to condemn the suggestion that Palestinians should be relocated to Jordan.
The Palestinian Authority said Wilders’ proposal is “a call to escalate the aggression against our people and a blatant interference in their affairs and future.” While the UAE embassy in the Netherlands called Wilders’ suggestion “irresponsible,” leaders in Jordan labeled the suggestion a “racist position,” Arab News reported.
It’s funny that when Jews suggest relocating Palestinians, we should listen but when any body else does, they are essentially called kooks.
“I always said that relocation should be voluntary not compulsory. But I would applaud a massive voluntary relocation indeed,” Wilders continued in his comment to Fox.
It’s clear that the Arab states don’t want any refugees. Guess they would rather have the issue to campaign on than actually fix anything.
The Dutch politician is a noted supporter of Israel, including displaying the Israeli flag in his office after Hamas’ attacks on the nation on Oct. 7.
He has also championed closing the Netherlands’ borders to immigrants, called for a referendum on the Netherlands leaving the European Union, has been labeled anti-Islamic, and he faced death threats over a handful of previous statements, including calling Islam a “fascist ideology” and a “backward religion” and arguing Muhammad was a “pedophile,” Reuters reported.
As noted elsewhere on this blog, the preferred Jewish solution is for the United States and the European Union to take 2 million refugees (about 50K per country). EU members are expected to follow the script as dictated by Israel. Wilder is viewed as dangerous because if Israel can’t unload the refugees on other countries, they might actually have to find a way to get along with their neighbors. Israel plans to take Gaza by ejecting the whole population, the alternative is genocide and/or perpetual occupation.
On a cautionary note, the longer this war goes on, the more video of dead noncombatants in Gaza will surface. This will counter the self-defense narrative being pushed on the West by Israel. This gambit might just backfire spectacularly on both Israel and the United States.
Can Joe Biden win re-election? Absolutely he can. It will not be easy, and won’t be fun, but he absolutely can. I will explain how.
Do everything possible to not have in person debates:
This is easy, have one of Biden’s inner circle get Covid just before the debate. This allows the debate to be remote and allows Biden to have his handlers hold up cue cards or the like to help him navigate the debate. I know this sounds harsh for ole Joe, but he is very obviously in declining health, so much so even his fellow Dems are saying he should step aside. It only takes one slip up (answering the wrong question, rambling, telling odd stories, staring into the abyss or wondering off set) to erode his support for good. The perception of being too old won’t sink him, reality will, and his handlers know this.
Make the election about Donald Trump:
Simply put Joe doesn’t have much to run on; the economy is teetering; layoffs are being considered/happening and globally some think WW3 could happen any day. As a result, he must make it all about Trump. Insurrection, wanting to overturn an election, and the general chaos that is Trump needs to be front and center all the time. Remember this folks, Trump is to Democrats what the Clinton’s are to the GOP, essentially the anti-Christ. The mention of Trump will drive Democrat turnout.
Make the 3rd party candidates, 3rd party candidates:
Simply put, RFK cannot be getting anywhere near 17% in the general. No way. If he does, Trump will have a really great night. Every vote for Jill Stein, RFK, or Cornell West is a vote taken from Joe Biden. Joe must shore up this flank and knock the support for each to around 1-3% RFK included. Note: neither William or any of the blog staff see a candidate getting 17% who isn’t a major party one. We see RFK topping at around 5-7% nationwide on election night.
Point out Trump is in no-man’s land:
Each time Trump comes out with an idea I would immediately question how it would get done. Simply put, his Party doesn’t like him. Most in our opinion wanted him to never get elected so they could “own the issue” not the solution…. Healthcare ring a bell? Trump will be a lame duck, and quite frankly will likely have very small majorities/minorities in both Houses of Congress. He will need to “twist the arms” of his own just to try to shepherd legislation through. If the Democrats win the House, I would say more impeachment inquiries will happen. I would be pointing out constantly that Trump has no support from his own Party, and tepid at best support from moderate Democrats. We do not know who his VP pick will be, and frankly he pretty much fired his entire cabinet at one point in time or another during this first term.
So, there you kind of have it. Biden can absolutely win; it may not be easy or fun. However, I will tease my next blog…. I do not think Joe Biden or Kamala Harris will be on the ticket.
Yep, during this pause in the war in Israel, the truth is finally seeing the light of day. Some in Israel are saying the quiet part out loud. Israel will occupy Gaza forever either by killing ‘em all or making them flee. Israel’s definition of a peaceful solution is that the West must take 2 million refugees from Gaza.
(FYI Per my handy dandy search engine, the current population of Gaza is 2.1 million.)
Please note that either way this is a permanent and hostile takeover of the region. One way or another, Israel plans to finish off any threat from Gaza. Oh, the article I linked below was briefly on Fox but seems to have been scrubbed from their website. I guess it doesn’t fit the narrative they want to advance.
A former Israeli minister has said the “solution” to the situation in the Gaza Strip is the complete departure of its over 2 million Palestinian inhabitants.
Speaking on Israeli Channel 13, former Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, said recently that the city of Khan Younis, located in the southern Gaza Strip, would be turned into a “soccer field” with the help of God and the Israeli army.
Israel should “take advantage of the destruction that we will wreak upon them,” Shaked said, arguing that other countries should permanently take “20,000 or 50,000” each of Gaza’s Palestinian residents to vacate the area entirely.
She stressed that Israel should take an advantage of the current destruction in Gaza and allow more people to leave, citing the previous departure of some 500,000 young people in recent years.
“We need 2 million to leave … that’s the solution for Gaza,” she said.
Again, Israel is a secular state and has no relation to the biblical nation. They are not offering compensation for confiscating the land, businesses, and possessions of these people. They are offering to let people leave with the clothes on their backs or prepare to meet their maker.
Some peaceniks think the current pause is a sign that the two-state solution can be revived. Dream-on baby. The earth is about to get scorched.
It has been said that truth is the first casualty of war. I wish to address this as it relates to the war in Israel.
This is my read after looking at much.
Israel set-up this war to clear out Gaza. Given the rings of security around this area, how else did the quantities of weapons get into the area in the first place? Members of the Israeli government have been provoking Muslims or Palestinians or whatever they call themselves for many years. As documented previously on the blog, they were the power behind Hamas for many years. At a minimum, Israel created an environment that would eventually have this outcome.
Hamas did attack but other than taking hostages and shooting off a huge number of rockets that did kill people, what else did they do? I keep hearing about certain alleged atrocities committed by Hamas but some that are repeated often by politicians and the media, never happened. Beheading 40 babies is claimed over and over again but the evidence has never been made part of the public record. It has been repeated enough that it is assumed a fact. I’m sure that some infant, somewhere, was found in that condition but to me it does make a difference whether such a horrific death was the result of an explosion or shrapnel, or a guy with a knife.
On the other hand, what about this? Many of the people outraged by these alleged atrocities of beheading children are perfectly fine with doing this through all nine months of the pregnancy as long as it’s called “choice”. This happens a lot more than forty times a day in this country and most Liberals and Jews are supportive of these acts of infanticide. We have a whole political party in this country dedicated to maximizing the killing of infants, the infirm, and the elderly. Our people are so deceived that the groups the Democrats want to kill, or cull are the ones that keep them in power.
Oh, then there is the children’s video posted by Israeli television. KANN News posted a propaganda video of children singing the praises of genocide in Gaza. Check out these lyrics:
In addition to all the above, in this country, many supporting Israel are going scorched earth on the rest of the populace. They are demanding support for Israel or risk being cancelled. I don’t support either side in this conflict. The whole mess stinks. I think we should be involved as a broker of peace not a partisan selling arms.
Lastly, why are the people that gave us Covid, lockdowns, fair elections, and all the other lies in recent years to be totally believed when they tell us about Ukraine (remember that war?) or Israel? It seems like Israel just wants to displace people so they can ship refugees elsewhere and confiscate their land.
I really hadn’t planned on getting into this fray until I read an article by Michael Brown. Brown gets it so wrong that I felt compelled to chime in. Below are quotes from Brown’s article on World Net Daily unless otherwise noted.
What did commentator Candace Owens mean when she posted that “Christ is King” in the midst of a very public dispute with her Daily Wire employer Ben Shapiro? I’m not going to enter into the details of that dispute, other than to say I agree with Shapiro’s concerns.
Here, I want to focus on Owens posting the words “Christ is King” on X (formerly Twitter).
In a previous post, she quoted the words of Jesus that “you cannot serve both God and money,” causing many to wonder if this was a dig on Jewish people, who are allegedly money hungry.
I was going to block quote Mr. Brown but decided to take this one section at a time.
Mr. Brown’s article is on a website run by Christians that hold to a Premillennial view of eschatology. Their view is that the current nation of Israel is a rebirth of the Old Testament nation by that name and that modern-day Israel is prophetically necessary to usher in the Return of Jesus Christ. This is hooey. The biblical nation of Israel ceased to exist in 70 AD. The Jews of today (with few exceptions) are not ethnically related to the Jews of 2,000 years ago. Furthermore, Jews need to come to God just the way the rest of us do, through His son, Jesus the Christ.
For those wondering what could be wrong with proclaiming “Christ is King,” the unfortunate reality is that this beautiful, biblically based truth has been hijacked by elements of the extreme religious right, often with antisemitic implications.
Apparently for Brown, when a person says, “Jesus is Lord” or “Christ is King,” they are being antisemitic. Brown seems to believe the Dispensational view that Jews can come to God without believe in Jesus. Sorry dude but that is not in accord with Scripture. If there is any way to God without going through Jesus, then Jesus died in vain and thus our faith is null and void.
“That chant is now a calling card of Nick Fuentes and America First – a podcast, conference and community within the broader white Christian nationalist movement. It also happens to be a core proclamation of Christians through the centuries.
This paragraph is a train wreck of mashed-up stuff. I will try to unpack this a little bit.
First, who cares about this Nick Fuentes guy. I looked him up on the Internet and the first hits I got were websites attacking Nick Fuentes such as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). These guys hate Christians and anyone on the right side of the political aisle. As a high-profile Christian on social media, if you’re not on their bad list then I doubt you stand for the right things.
Fuentes once had dinner with Donald Trump and Kanye West. Fuentes has a group called America First Foundation. It was founded in 2020. Four years after Trump was elected on a platform of America First.
America First Foundation’s purpose is:
Our country is having a crisis of faith. We’ve lost faith in God, in our institutions, and in our destiny as a people. This absence has left the foundational pillars of America in ruins. Immigration has spiraled into a mass invasion, eroding our identity as Americans. Our cities, once shining achievements of our prosperous civilization, are now symbols of decline and decay. Our people have been taught to hate themselves and their ancestors, all the while being encouraged to embrace degeneracy and sin.
Our forefathers created this nation with their blood, sweat, and tears. Their struggle produced a country rooted in Christ, family, and virtue. Following in their footsteps, we aim to restore those lost values while building a happy, healthy, and prosperous future. Much like our ancestors, we strive to create a home with dignity and reverence for God.
While we take inspiration from the past, our movement is focused on the future as we plot a new course for America in the decades and even centuries to come. We are tapping into the creativity of our nation’s young Christian men, born and raised in a technologically rich, but spiritually poor era. It is these visionaries who will remake the American character, grounding it in Christian virtue and societal excellence. America First is carving a path forward that is truly revolutionary. With your continued help and support, this movement can actualize its vision for the future, forging a new version of America, worthy of our posterity.
We live in an era of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). These are direct attacks on Christianity, Christian Culture (Western Culture), and American Values. Was America ever a perfect country? Nope. But the Left is openly tearing down the last vestiges of what America once was in the names of socialism, communism, and a bunch of other _isms. Mr. Brown thinks pushing back against the Liberal onslaught of evil by me or Fuentes or Candice Owens or whoever is wrong. Why? I guess things are supposed to get worse and worse until Jesus returns. Many in his camp hold to this perverse view that to oppose evil is to delay the return of Christ.
Also, where and how did Fuentes get ownership of the slogan “America First”? I thought to love one’s country was called patriotism. If God put you in a particular country, then to love your country is to agree with God that His purpose in placing you in a particular place and time is good.
Brown then starts in with rhetoric about the white Christian nationalist movement. What a loaded term. I guess white people can’t have a voice in today’s America? At least that is what Mr. Brown seems to imply. The Liberal message is clear, if you are white, you have no voice. Shut-up because all that is wrong is your fault. If you’re a Christian, ditto. It’s all your fault so shut up. If you’re for America, then you are racist so shut up. However, being for war in Ukraine or Israel at the expense of the US is OK? Supporting marriage as between a man and woman is racist and hateful but gay or trans whatever is honorable? These messages in our culture today are symptoms of great evil and rot in our nation.
Oh, my other thought is when did Fuentes become a name for a white guy? Thought that was a Hispanic name. Then again, the “Proud Boys” were led by a Hispanic guy but somehow, they are white supremacists anyway. Seems like white is a very malleable category. Mr. Brown seems to think the best position for white folks is grabbing their ankles and says, “Please sir, may I have some more.”
“When I say ‘Christ is King,’ I mean something very different from what Fuentes means. While there is a long history of Christian support for violent racism – even using that very same language – a proper theological understanding of ‘Christ is King’ ought to compel us to live at peace with our neighbors.”
Mr. Brown, who doesn’t want to live at peace with their neighbor?
Last I checked, Kanye West was a black guy that loved Jesus. He was with Fuentes who claims to love Jesus at the dinner with Trump who also claims to love Jesus. If he was as racist as you imply, why would he choose to hang out with a black guy?
Oh, by-the-way, loving Jesus is the way to racial harmony and the solution in the Middle East wars.
I didn’t see anywhere that Fuentes is advocating for armed conflict or violence or race wars. To say Christians, have a long history of racism and violence is very provocative and demonstrably untrue, at least in terms of a body count.
More people died in the 20th Century as a result of beliefs underpinned by Darwin and his survival of the fittest than in all the religious wars in the history of the world. Darwin is the basis of humanism, eugenics, communism, and socialism. The body counts of abortion, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and others could be close to a billion souls lost in the last century. It is estimated that 3.5 million people died as a result of all religious wars in the history of the planet. Clearly, no comparison.
Furthermore, more people are in slavery today than ever in the history of the planet but because we can get electric cars and iPhones cheaper, we look the other way. Fuentes is opposed to tyranny and slavery, but Mr. Brown says Fuentes is a bad guy? Seems like Brown is setting up a Fuentes as a strawman so he can beat him like a pinata? Then Brown is challenging Candice Owens to agree with him or else. Oh, yea. Candice Owens is black, or at least looks to be nonwhite to me, so how is she throwing in with white Christian nationalists? I think Mr. Brown is very confused.
This last part is most instructive.
But without a doubt, there is a growing minority that connects “America first” with the proclamation of “Christ is King” in a way that perverts the very meaning of those Jesus-exalting words.
Yes, Jesus is King and will always be King. He was born a King, died a King, reigns in heaven as King, and will return as King – in fact, as King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:16). For myself, as Jewish follower of Jesus, I unashamedly proclaim Him as the Messianic King and the Savior and Lord of all. And yes, in His name and authority we are called to go and make disciples of the nations (Matthew 28:18-20).
But to use “Christ is King” as a political slogan, especially one with racist and antisemitic overtones, is to bring disgrace on that holy and beautiful name.
At the end of his article, Brown finally exposes the defect of his theology. Jesus is just the Savior of your soul. For him, all this Jesus stuff is just spiritual. It has no earthly application. Brown cherry picks the Great Commission as the totality of the mission of the Christian Church because Jesus reigns only in Heaven.
Brown is the one denying Scripture. Clearly, he doesn’t understand the meaning of the Ascension of Christ or His Kingdom. Jesus is sitting on the Right hand of the Father ruling the nations now. Jesus will continue to rule until all nations submit to His Lordship. Brown is blinded by the Dispensational presuppositions that he is trying to impose on the Bible. Sorry Mr. Brown but they aren’t there.
Christian Nationalists want biblical values to be the values of our country, not secular humanism or socialism or communism. God has blessed us as a nation to the extent that we honor and obey His Law. We are currently under God’s judgement for disobeying Him. Christians, including Christian nationalists, want limited government and the freedom to worship God. They want God welcome into the public square not cancelled from it along with His followers. The basis of our Republic was once the Ten Commandments and needs to be again.
Some folks believe that they should actively work to oppose evil in our society and make our laws and values a reflection of God’s Revelation. In short, transform the culture. Some of us are having a healthy discussion as to whether we should use the model of St. Patrick or St. Boniface. We are working to answer the question of Francis Schaeffer, “How should we then live?”
Meanwhile Mr. Brown wants to sit it out and hope the Rapture happens, so we won’t reap what we’ve sewn. Sorry but Jesus ain’t coming back in your lifetime or that of your grandchildren so what now? If all you want to do is wait around for a third temple or some other nonsense, wake up. Scofield was wrong. Hal Lindsey was wrong. You are wrong. Matthew 24 was fulfilled 2,000 years ago.
Some of us hope to leave the world a better and more righteous place than we found it. We must try but the results are God’s not ours.
Ben Shapiro demands that Israel’s interests supersede those of the United States. If you dare to disagree then he starts calling folks racists. Sorry but I and many others dissent. I think the US should stay out of this war.
Meanwhile, Brown only wants us to be involved due to heretical theology. Brown wants us all in for Israel because he thinks we need to bless Israel to be blessed. (Zionism is a part of his dispensational/premillennial theology.) Sorry, but the New Testament Church is true Israel not the folks using that name today that live in Palestine or whatever you want to call Judea in this day and age.
Candice Owens is right that Christ is King. The problem is that our fellow Americans no longer believe that. This is not a race issue, it’s a heart issue. Until Christians live as Christ commanded seven days a week, don’t expect things to get any better. For Mr. Brown to essentially call Candice Owens a white Christian nationalist is beyond laughable.
Yep, while China’s leader was in San Francisco the other day, Joe Biden paid him a visit and endorsed Gavin Newsom for President. As is usual, I think Joe shot-off his mouth and gave away part of the Democrat playbook for 2024.
“I want to talk about Governor Newsom. I want to thank him. He’s been one hell of a governor, man,” Biden said Wednesday during a welcome reception for Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders in San Francisco. “Matter of fact, he could be anything he wants. He could have the job I’m looking for.”
Biden’s eyebrow-raising comment was made at “the most significant event with world leaders in San Francisco in recent history,” according to the APEC 2023 website for the event.
Newsom recently elevated rumors of running a “shadow campaign” amid trips to Israel amid its war with Hamas, before heading to China late last month to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Joe is making an admission against interest (his interest), but we here at the blog think he let at least part of the political cat out of the bag.
The problem is that people think the Democrats elect convention delegates via the Presidential Primary Process; however, this is not true. Most delegates are pledged prior to the vote, these guys, referred to as “super delegates,” are the ones that are a majority and really run things behind the scenes.
My proof is this, if you recall the cycle when Hillary Ran against Trump (2016), Bernie Sanders won many states by as much as 70 percent, but Hillary still won most of the delegates in these states. The system is rigged so that the super delegates have the power. This only becomes a problem when the rank-and-file democrats vote contrary to the wishes of their masters, then you see the fraud that they perpetrate.
What this means in 2024 is that while democrats are dutifully voting for Biden, the super delegates are being lobbied to support Newsom. Gavin only needs to get the support of about 1,600 people in the country to be the dem nominee regardless of how democrats vote in the primaries. The primary elections are just smoke-and-mirrors to give the illusion of a fair election process.
When the Democrat Convention happens, Joe’s removal will be engineered into the proceedings. The only question is, will Biden leave willingly or be forced out?
Yep, a property that Donald Trump owned for many years has finally hit the dust bin, and deservedly so. Shortly after the Miss Universe contest announced that they would allow transvestite entries, they filed for bankruptcy. If this reminds you of my recent post on Victoria’s Secret, it should. Here are the details.Trump owned Miss Universe from 1996 to 2015.
Trump owned the Miss Universe Organization between 1996 and 2015. After making comments about Mexican immigrants that prompted the termination of the pageant’s partnerships with NBC and Univision, he sold the organization to International Management Group
It looks like International Management Group owned the organization from 2015 to 2022.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Anne Jakkaphong Jakrajutatip — a Thai media tycoon who has been open about her experiences as a trans woman — purchased the pageant for $20 million, CNN reports. Jakrajutatip is also the CEO of JKN Global Group PCL, a Thailand-based media distribution company.
One year later, JKN Global filed for bankruptcy.
While the 2023 Miss Universe pageant, known for its inclusion transgender contestants, will still take place this Saturday, the JKN Global Group behind it filed for bankruptcy just days before the event.
Thai business tycoon and transgender activist Anne Jakrajutatip of the JKN Global Group bought the organization for $20,000,000 in 2022. Jakrajutatip, who has international fame as a transgender celebrity, described the purchase at the time as “a strong, strategic addition to our portfolio.”
Ok, one thought before I start slamming this situation. Is the chick with a dick that owns this contest leaving all the company liabilities in the existing corporation and exploiting a loophole to place assets into a new corporation, or is this disturbed person really broke? Either way, it’s yet another example of “Go Woke, Go Broke”.
Now for some random thoughts. The Rolling Stone article quoted above also makes some accusations against Trump. These guys really hate conservatives and especially Trump, so this is no surprise. But let’s look at their dig.
Throughout the time Trump owned the pageant, he made creepy comments about the women who competed on the show, while some former Miss USA contestants claimed he walked into teen dressing rooms while they were changing.
“He just came strolling right in,” former Miss Arizona Tasha Dixon told CBS LA. “There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless. Others girls were naked. Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half-naked changing into our bikinis.”
Let’s assume their complaint about Trump walking into the room where the models/contestants were changing is true. Rolling Stone has a problem with this. Sorry but I must dissent at least somewhat. Models always have people attending to them. These helpers are not only around them when dressing but these folks are touching, poking, and prodding them. It’s part of the make-up process to have people making changes to your appearance prior to going in front of the camera.
Again, Rolling Stone has a problem with Trump allegedly doing that but a guy who walks in the changing room gets a pass from them because he’s wearing a dress instead of a suit. Sorry but that’s just weird. Under the hood, they both started out with the same factory plumbing.
Just because the guy that owns the competition thinks he’s a girl, is not what sunk the enterprise. It was when he forced his values onto the audience by allowing transvestites/transsexuals into a women’s beauty contest that he went too far. Just like with Victoria’s Secret, folks expect to see hot women in beautiful clothing. Spectators don’t want to check all the babes for packages at events such as this. They want to see the best that God has created, not some fake crap thrust upon them as equivalent to the genuine article.
Oh, wanna bet that Disney has rights to broadcast this competition in US markets?
Yes, dear readers. The C.S. Lewis classic children’s stories are getting a makeover by Barbie. Here’s the news stories:
July 7, 2023
Known for her highly anticipated movie BARBIE, sources confirmed Greta Gerwig is set to direct a new Netflix adaption of NARNIA.
The Hollywood Reporter stated, “There is no official announcement but the New York reported that Gerwig has a deal to direct two films in author C.S Lewis’ NARNIA franchise.”
Additionally IDN reported, “According to a recent profile piece in The New Yorker, Gerwig will helm at least two Narnia movies for Netflix as part of the streamer’s long-gestating plans to bring the beloved Chronicles of Narnia series to life through multiple movies and TV shows.”
Netflix film chief Scott Stuber recently revealed why he made a deal with Greta Gerwig to adapt C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia” books for the streaming service.
Variety executive editor Brent Lang asked Stuber, “I want to ask you about some upcoming films. You have Greta Gerwig adapting C.S. Lewis’ Narnia books. Why did you decide to make that deal? What about her as a filmmaker made you feel like that was a good fit with that material?”
While production hasn’t started yet, Netflix is hoping to begin filming sometime next year.
Stuber told Collider, “Well, I think people know that we’re aspirationally trying to get Greta Gerwig’s NARNIA together and get that movie, which will be next year.”
Ok, color me skeptical. First her name is Greta. Sorry but every Greta that I know of is literally a flaming Liberal.
Second, she directed Barbie. Yes, I know the movie made lots of money but yuck. Aside from all the woke stuff in it, it looks like she gave the franchise the “Speed Racer” treatment. Live people with computer animated backgrounds.
Sorry folks but I see no way that the Narnia series survives this lady and her companions. And maybe that’s the point.
The Walden Media movies lost much of the spirit of Narnia and got progressively worse as they went on. Walden lost much of the Christian message in the books simply because they didn’t stick with the story; instead opting to make Naria a Marvel lite action series. Wanna bet the Walt Disney Company forced many of these changes to the scripts because they had distribution rights to the movies? (If memory served me, Disney killed the distribution of future films, thus killing any further Narnia projects by Walden Media.)
Sorry but Narnia is about characters making choices and then bearing the consequences of their actions. It is more cerebral than action oriented. The action has a purpose and is not just a series of scenes of gratuitous violence strung together for the purposes of entertainment.
I really doubt that Netflix will allow the Narnia series to be made without making characters homosexual or trans just so they can check the politically correct boxes mandated by Hollywood. Then there’s the white witch. Do they keep her white, and make all the children members of various minority groups?
Can an overtly Christian book series really translate once they get done with it? Color me super pessimistic. I think this is a backhanded way of destroying Narnia. They want it to fail and in such a way that the message is that Lewis books just aren’t marketable.
Remember that Liberals kill what they can’t control.
Yep, earlier this year Megan got the boot from Victoria’s Secret. Thanks to her efforts, their sales decreased 20 percent.
The brand, known for hiring beautiful models, has tried to diversify its models over the past few years, including plus-size and transgender representatives. However, the rebrand attempt has not translated to increased sales , with the outlet’s projected revenue for this year at $6.2 billion, down by almost 20% compared to 2020’s $7.5 billion .
But it seems the brand [Victoria’s Secret] won’t be going forward with Rapinoe …
It’s a good thing that Victoria’s Secret is going back to their roots; namely, beautiful women that can please their men.
Megan is a fringe person living a fringe life.
Having failed to define beauty for American pop culture—something us red-blooded American men knew about .03 seconds after seeing want Megan looks like—yesterday, Megan tried her hand at theology. It didn’t go well.
Megan there is a God in Heaven, you are just in rebellion against Him. Just like the rest of us, you need to yield to Him or face the consequences. Since you haven’t yielded, you get to abide under His wrath until you repent or draw your last breath. Your choice.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 1: 26 – 32
Megan, you are the poster child for Andrew Isker’s Trashworld and all that is wrong with our culture. You are a broken and pathetic individual. If you thought Saturday was a bummer, just wait. Apart from God you can never be happy or fulfilled. You can fill that hole in your heart with anything you want but it won’t work.
God punishes the wicked. They may appear to get away with stuff in this life but none of us escape death or the judgement.
Megan, what people see in you is something I can never understand. Perhaps you could get a gig on The View. They have a whole panel of women just as miserable and unhappy as you are.
Note:This blog is a direct reflection on William pointing out Senator Joe Manchin retired after I sent my blog to him yesterday.
Kind of a weird retirement announcement yesterday from Joe Manchin am I right? Manchin who I best describe as a centrist, more of a watered-down Democrat announced he was retiring. At age 76 he is pretty young in political years. All in all, he likely would have lost re-election, current governor, former Democrat Jim Justice is running, and he likely beats Manchin by decent numbers. However, Alex Mooney a congressman, hard right Trump supporter is also running. I do not think Mooney a carpetbagger who moved from Maryland to win a congress seat beats Manchin. Manchin despite being a democrat is very popular in dark red West Virginia.
The weirdness about Manchin’s announcement? He made a reference to traveling around the US and spreading his political message.
What I will be doing is traveling the country and speaking out to see whether there is an interest in creating a movement to mobilize the middle and bring Americans together
If you are wondering, there is a group called “No Labels” who for months has been laying the groundwork to try to field just that…. a bi-partisan ticket for the presidential race. Manchin is the perfect person to top that ticket. He is personable, likeable and spews common sense. No one at this blog would vote for him, however.
This creates another headache for Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. Machin will be very popular in certain parts of the country (think Midwest and some parts of the southwest and south), running a centrist campaign with some decent sized donors behind them. My understanding is “No Labels” has qualified to be on the ballot in several states already.
Spotlight Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina as 5 definite swing states based on recent elections. I have a feeling far more states are to come. No Labels is not forthcoming about their progress on getting on the ballots of various states, but they maintain they are adequately funded to meet their goals.
Think about this, Manchin will need a running mate. This brings another interesting couple of names up for speculation.
Mitt Romney, he also a soon to be former Senator. His retirement is also due to kind of dubious reasons. Romney hates Trump and is a “middle road” moderate type with no future in the GOP.
Kirstin Sinema, the current, no longer Democrat, Senator from Arizona is another option. She also has no chance of being re-elected as an Independent. Sinema, a former Democrat, could be a tough sell as a running mate with Manchin. In a sense it will look like a spoiler ticket to hand the election to Trump.
Romney comes with the baggage that no Trump supporter will flip to this ticket. People in the Romney crowd are either solidly in the Biden camp or supporting RFK.
No one knows what will happen but let me lay out a nightmare scenario for Joe Robinette Biden and his crew.
Assume these following tickets nominate someone in all 50 states.
GOP: Trump Democrat: Biden Independent: Robert Kennedy jr. Also Independent: Cornell West (He is the socialist type, weirdo black guy) Green Jill Stein (2020 nominee) Libertarian There will be a nominee here No Labels Manchin/Romney/Sinema/Someone else?
The problem above is outside of the Libertarian and maybe RFK, no other party will draw votes from Trump. The Green will suck maybe 1% from Joe in states that matter. No Labels could very well take 2-4% pending the ticket and each state they run in. RFK, as we detailed, will take roughly the same, again pending the states he is running in. Cornell West is pulling the 1% insane folks vote nationwide.
Therein lies the issue. It gets more complex with No Labels likely fielding a ticket in quite a few states. If Manchin is their guy, how many votes does he steal in Pennsylvania? Virginia? North Carolina? If Sinema is on the ticket, how many from Arizona? Colorado? Romney is another wild card, as he will likely be stealing Biden votes in EVERY STATE.
Like I blogged yesterday, none of these third parties win, but how much does the race change? Biden is looking at his “soft” support ceiling cracking little by little each passing day. I don’t expect significant Biden support to go to Trump, but I can see a number of people abandoning Biden for someone shiny and new. As a result, look for Dems to play hardball by deploying any gimmicks and dirty tricks at their disposal to try thwarting No Labels from fielding candidates.
Last note: Manchin may also be angling for an Exxon Mobil Board seat as he was the top beneficiary of their donations over the years, and he, via his family, owns a gas company. If he is genuinely finished with politics, this would be a logical move.
