In service to the "chosen one".


Image result for trump dear leader images 

" Never forget that Russia chose the REPUBLICAN party to destroy America. Why? Because they knew they would sell their souls for power and money." ~@Leeanna Ernest~

I read an article by Max Boot in the Washington Post today, and in it he rightly pointed out that the republican party has turned into a "quasi-fascist party" in service to its leader, Donald trump.

The signs are everywhere. If you watched the impeachment hearings last week and the sycophantish behavior being displayed by the GOP members of congress who questioned the impeachment witnesses, you would know what I am referring to. 

They were not playing to the millions of American watching, they were clearly playing to an audience of one: Their dear leader. The man with whom they have made a Faustian bargain to sell their souls for who knows what. 

Today Rick Perry pretty much confirmed what I wrote above by declaring that Donald trump was chosen by God to lead us.

"Over the weekend, outgoing Secretary of Energy Rick Perry sat down with Fox & Friends host Ed Henry to share his belief that Donald Trump, a thrice-married serial philanderer accused by multiple women of sexual assault, is God's "chosen one," echoing language Trump has previously used to describe himself. " 'If you're a believing Christian, you understand God's plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet and our government,' " he says he told the president.

Perry, who announced his resignation from Trump's cabinet back in October, acknowledged that although the man who appointed him is not "perfect," God has "used imperfect people all through history" to carry out his will. In what is likely a first for the official in charge of America's nuclear-weapons arsenal, Perry revealed that he had even authored a memorandum comparing Trump to Old Testament kings Saul, David, and Solomon in order to drive home the point."

What's scary is that trump himself believes this nonsense, and he is starting to act  accordingly. 

Do not be surprised if trump loses the next election and refuses to step down. He will declare that it's not yet God's will that he leaves office, and he still has some unfinished business to do. And before you call me crazy, you must understand that members of his cult are already saying that they would be cool with that, and trump himself has joked said that he might just do it and stick around beyond his term. (*Constitution? What Constitution? We don't need no stinking Constitution.*) 

I honestly do not believe that America could survive twelve years of trump. Heck three years has seemed like thirty under the rule of this lunatic. But there are many in this country who are probably thinking that they can't live without him being in power. He is, after all, God's chosen one. 

Hey, maybe God did choose him. It is said that God works in mysterious ways.  

The thing is, there is no mystery as to who and what Donald trump really is. The fact that so many people can't see it is what should keep is all up at night.

Rick Perry's comment was the most nauseating example of public ass-kissing I can remember. "Chosen" by God? Seriously?

Trump is president for multiple reasons:

Because of rampant cheating -- of both the Republican-organized and Russian-organized varieties.

Because of an archaic, idiotic, undemocratic feature of our Constitution known as the Electoral College.

And because of large numbers of American voters being either greedy, stupid, or racist. Or all three.

However, I can say with complete confidence that there is one party that was not involved in any part of the process that put him in the White House: God.

seeing that the Republicans are thrashing the constitution, President Obama should challenge President Trump to a voters only presidential run. None of that antique Electoral College crap. Winner take all. The Constitution is outdated in some principals. DT cares less by principals

Perhaps Fergus is chosen by their almighty invisible friend, but they're not so specific as to what for.

This is what separation of church and state is for. Specifically.

And speaking of separations that Republicans violate, there's the separation of powers, as explained in a 120 page ruling by a federal judge today, saying that the power of a monarch is broken into three by the constitution and given one part each to the three branches of government so that they can each act as a check on the mistakes and excesses of the others, and exact remedies when such malfeasance is found via their investigatory powers.

The judge said that denial of compelled legislative process by the executive is a grave wound on the system the framers set us up with to avoid a descent into tyranny.

Read that McGahn is ordered to testify. Whether he will or not remains to be seen. His attorney said that he would, unless the ruling is stayed pending appeal. Whether this will apply to Bolton and his deputy also remains to be seen.

But Fergus as chosen by god? I guess there were plagues of locusts and boils and other such horse shit that one could roughly equate with the hideousness of the Fergus administration, so it probably depends on which half of the bible you take your cues from: the old testament did feature big chunks of the sort of mindless brutality that Fergus seems to embody, while the teachings of Jesus Christ are about as close to the exact opposite of Fergus, his felons, and their maladministration as you could come up with if you set out to do exactly that.

Trump was chosen by God to punish the USA for having a political party that would have Rick Perry as a member.

Flying Junior said...

It's really a fucking shame the way that the evangelicals have taken this idea of being chosen just way too far. Running with it, honing it, polishing it... Trying to defend it as scientific fact.

I'm fairly certain that it grew from a contemporary protestant doctrine that taught that governments are instituted by God. The purpose was to promote good citizenship and an attitude of obedience to the governing authorities. It's not biblical. It seems to be uniquely American. It's quite simple-minded. All one needs to do is to ask why God allowed the despots, the dictators and the terrible tyrants to be given power. Why would God institute a government which systematically oppressed its peoples? Was the Soviet Union instituted by God? It falls apart.

Another reason it never really made sense of course would have been the fact that Evangelicals never truly celebrated the anointment of Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. Jerry Brown? Mayor Bradley?

But these Trumpy sycophants really have carried it all way too far with the comparisons to the great Kings of the ancient Hebrews and the prophets of the Old Testament. Enough already you dumb fuckheads. Give it a rest. King David? Is nothing sacred?

If Trump was sent by anyone, which I doubt, he was sent by the devil to torment us. To suggest that Trump was sent by God is blasphemy.

Thanks for this, Field, especially since some of us don't subscribe to WaPo. I half-expected you'd reproduce big chunks of the ruling against Don McGahn by Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who upheld his subpoena to appear before the Judicial Committee. She delivered an ass kicking to Trump and Barr that should have relocated their sphincters to the neighborhood of their spleens. She was Constitutional, educational, and witheringly condescending. She may make it difficult for any other court to overturn or even question her ruling. Anyway great reading.

Yes, but are there any Republicans in †he house or the Senate that possess a shred of integrity? So far, it doesn't look like there are.

dinthebeast said...

The Republican party has been a shambling zombie devouring the brains of the credulous since 1994. That's the identity that they have integrity to, and adherence is near 100%.

As opposed to today, where we worship Equality and are taught that government must enforce good citizenship and an attitude of obedience to the governing authorities. Suck the dick, bigot.

The difference is the existence of God is not demonstrably false.

Slave wages? How much have real wages gone up during the last 40 years of mostly Republican rule? Weakened military? - Not by Democrats, but surely by Trump. And corruption in the highest levels of government - six close associates of Trump convicted and in prison, or awaiting sentencing. And the list goes on.

Tell that to Jimmy Carter and William Barber.

The right perverts scripture to support its extreme anti-Jesus policies. The only real Christians left are on the left.

And then there are all the other religions that the right wants to persecute and deport who only have the left to help them uphold their "liberty of conscience" as Roger Williams called freedom of religion.

Sure, some of us, like me, are atheists, but for the most part we don't care what god you worship as long as you keep it away from the running of the government. One of my favorite bloggers is a Christian with a masters in divinity from Harvard who likes to say that god likes atheists best.

Is you faith in your religion so weak that others who are non-believers cannot express an opinion that differs from yours? Furthermore, you on the right do not practice what Jesus taught. Doug speaks the truth about your hypocrisy.

BTW, I am not an atheist.

Anymoose @ 10:07 PM. what a crock of horseshit. Mainstream media didn't bother with the story. Only extreme rwnj picked it up which means it was either fake or blown way out of proportion.

I read the Blaze account. The alleged victims started an argument with a bouncer and then they claimed 10 to 15 people attacked them. But, the incident was never reported to the police. Wah fucking wah!

I'd be willing to bet it was staged or didn't happen at all.

LOL! Obviously Trump doesn't know the meaning of the word centennial! I hope Republicans are proud of electing this ignoramus to run our country.
We can't blame Trump too much for being so ignorant. His school attendance record is sketchy, and according to the author of "A Warning," Trump still isn't interested in learning anything.

So in between working on foreign policy, trade policy, criminal-justice reform, infrastructure, reimagining the Veterans Administration, tackling the opioid crisis, and striking a Middle East peace agreement, Jared Kushner will take over direction of the construction of Fergus' stupid, stupid wall.
So I guess that settles it, no wall will be built.
They are currently working on seizing the land to build 83 miles of border fencing on, but to achieve their stated goal of building 450 miles of new border fencing before the 2020 election, they'll have to complete about a mile every day.

dinthebeast said...

It's almost sad: every lie their propaganda gets them excited about fizzles or blows up in their faces because that's what lies do.
They could always try and face the truth for once, but breaking an addiction is very hard, and facing any new truth comes with the risk of having to face all of the other lies which by this point their identities are so invested in as to make it feel like an existential threat, so they are pretty much trapped.
Propaganda is evil shit.
