Disgraced televangelist Jim Bakker stoked fears of presidential assassination while claiming that their grandchildren of his audience could face eternal damnation unless they call a 1-888 phone number and send him $60 (plus shipping) for a bucket of pancake mix.

“You know, if they kill our president, or they destroy him or whatever,” Bakker worried. “If we elect the other side, I mean they’ve come out against God.”

“I think maybe Trump is here to give us time to get ready, because all hell is going to break loose,” Bakker suggested.

“We’re not going to have the anti-Christ to show up to get the sign of the mark of our beast on our forehead, it won’t happen without hunger,” he claimed.

“Hunger is going to be the main thing. You don’t get it, most people don’t want to get it, but that’s why I’m so obsessed with you all being prepared,” he claimed.

Bakker resigned from his Assemblies of God ministries after facing accusations of drugging and raping an employee. He was convicted of fraud and imprisoned.

Great video, but the identity of the so-called white race are wrong. Based on the Holy Bible Genesis 9:27 the Most High warn us so-called negroes that a gentile nation would live in the land of Israel today. These Caucasians so-called white people imposter living in our land Israel are Japhet bloodlines not Esau or Ishmael. Gen. 9:27 the Most High YAH shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.... The Most High is destroying Esau Ishmael the Arab nations right now before our eyes, and also those pale skin fallen angels so-called white race are plaques on earth needed to die soon.?

[Submitted without any anonymous comment – archived post here]

@dean-the-map – Paedophilia is not a sexuality. It’s a fetish.

If you’re as “anti-contact” as you claim, you would not put yourself in any situation where you’re near a child, especially any situation where you’d be alone with children.

Some people are addicted to alcohol, know how bad it is, would never want to touch a drop – but it still wouldn’t be a good idea to work behind a bar, because that temptation is still there. They might be fine working in a bar for a while. They might think that they’re in zero danger. But all it takes is one slip.

Children need to be protected. You might be able to attempt to argue that you’re there, working with children because you want to protect them, but the truth is that you’re deliberately tempting yourself. You admit to being attracted to some of the children under your care.

This isn’t like working any job and finding a customer/patient/etc attractive, but you just ignore it because acting on it would be unprofessional. Children can be very easily groomed. They don’t have the understanding that adults have to say no or protect themselves if you end up doing something that you’ll regret.

I am very much of the mind that paedophiles have a mental disorder, and should be treated so that they never harm a child and can still live a full life. But what you’re doing here is wrong. And your claim that being attracted to children is a “sexuality” is entirely wrong, too.

If you care about children as much as you say you do, if you really want to protect them, you should be protecting them from yourself, first.

No, it’s not a fetish, it describes the type of people towards whom my sexuality is oriented, hence a sexual orientation. It functions the same as any other sexual orientation.
That’s not what anti-contact means, but of course you don’t care what it actually means.
Addiction and attraction are not comparable. Being non-offending is the easy part of being a MAP.

I’m not tempted at all though. How often are you tempted to rape someone?
To act on my attractions wouldn’t just be unprofessional, it would cause harm to another person, it would be rape. Not raping people is really easy.
I disagree, I believe paedophilia is best described as a sexual orientation (and the current scientific consensus is in agreement). Paedophilia can’t be changed or cured and it doesn’t inherently make someone more likely to harm a child. On it’s own it requires no treatment. Paedophiles should be able to get treatment though if they are distressed by their attraction or are at risk of acting on it.
Or maybe I should be protecting them from people that actually want to harm them.

I've been in cults in the early 90s when I was a child. there's certain aspects of trans community that feels very cult-like to me- the refusal to think, but must only obey and believe 100% (or else be branded a sinner for daring to ask questions), the removal of one's own agency when it comes to naming and describing your own personal experience without being shamed. these things I see in the trans community and I dont like it.

To me, a cult was once a community where people had other's best interests at heart, before it was overtaken by dogma and a complete mandatory belief system that will render you helpless if you don't abide by the rules.

I don't like that lesbian women and gay men cant even be allowed to sleep with the same sex according to the transcult- apparently it makes us ''transphobic''. what utter vile homophobia. I've spent half of my life being told by controlling people that there is something 'inherently wrong' with me because I am a lesbina who wants to sleep with other women. Now the transcult is saying there is something ''inherently wrong'' with me because I am a lesbian who wants to sleep with other women. these people are condoning rape and homophobia if they're not careful.

I thought nothing could compel me to become a Reddit user, but it seems I was wrong. Been lurking here for almost a year, and if any sub on Reddit could inspire me to create an account, it is this one. Haven't personally experienced a "peak trans" moment, mainly because I've never considered transgenderist ideology to have any sort of legitimacy.

Politically, I am and was a Marxist(-Leninist) prior to being exposed to transactivism, and the two ideologies are quite simply irreconcilable, what with Marxism being based on materialism, and genderist thought residing firmly in the realm of idealism. I'm also male, and correspondingly socialized, so I've never felt a need to hide or obscure my views for the sake of being "nice" or to coddle men's feelings.

I've noticed a disturbing trend where people who call themselves Marxists, my supposed comrades, are increasingly pandering to transactivists and parroting the regressive ideas of genderist ideology. This makes no sense to me; Not only is it impossible to simultaneously accept a materialist worldview and believe in the doctrine of gender identity, but transactivism is also so blatantly misogynistic, homophobic and racist that I cannot fathom how someone who claims to be a communist could be a-OK with, and even take part in, such reactionary politics.

Being exposed to this bullshit has slowly but surely made me convinced that Marxism is virtually worthless as a tool to change the world for the better, if it is not combined with unequivocal support for radical feminism and radfems. We can wage revolution and build socialism perfectly fine without fetishistic and narcissistic men in dresses, but we can't do it without women.

Quote# 134562

For a change of pace perhaps the readers of this might like some facts. My name is Tristie Johnson and I am Lauren Stratford's - niece. First you need to know that when Rose Willson came of age - she changed here name from Rose Grabowski to Rose Grey. This was - because she was ashamed of her Polish heritage. When she got married her name changed again to Rose Willson. When Lauren - ran away from home she went to live with her father in California. - I do not understand why Cornerstone magazine has not asked to interview me since I too was horribly abused by my grandmother and - both my parents. I have the restraning order I was granted by the judge against Rose Willson and Willow Teeter after they went to - a summer camp where my son was at and tried to kidnap him. - I have the letter from the Summer Camp apolgizing for allowing them to enter the camp, they said my mother verbally - abused the camp directer until she gave in. - Although I did not meet my aunt until after the restraining order was granted we had a lot of things in common, since I was forced to spend a lot of time with my abusive grandmother, who was Lauren's adopted mother and experienced some of the same horrors. When my parents found out about the book they returned to the United States, (they had been in Israel, primarly helping the Palestinians.) They began an urgent campain to discredit Lauren. Cornerstone magazine only interviewed a few members of my family but the family did their best to generate as many lies as possible about my aunt. Why? - My grandmother was very rich, so she had plenty of money to spend in order to cover up the truth. Usually if you ask a person if they horribly abused a child, especially arranging sexual abuse they are bound to deny it. Especially since so many things that happened were against the law. - During the second world war the United States had our own - Holocaust. We not only put the Japanese into the camps, but Americans, Italians, and Germans as well. Most likely Lauren - was born when her parents were in the camps. They were fashioned - after the concentration camps in Germany, some were even set in - places that looked like Germany. I remember as a child long after the war, being strapped to a chair so I could not move and being forced to view the horrible things that happened in a Nazi German camp and was drugged so I would hallucinate while being poked with needles and other sharp things so it felt like I was in that camp. If you have ever been to Disney Land you can understand how detailed special effects can be. - Shortly after my parents came home my aunt was pushed down a large flight of cement stairs and was almost killed. Crime Victems - compensation paid for her counseling after the accident. When we - met she was quite poor but throughout the rest of her life we were close. I attended her memorial service and helped people clean out her apartment afterwards. I miss my aunt. Satans's - Underground is a true story. The name change to Lauren Stratford and the omission of my mother in the book were done out of consideration not to embarrass my mother. It's ridiculous after - all this time to be making up stories against my aunt

The next step is to give up all public areas to the enemy and shelter in place–at home–freezing to death–in the dark–as you wait for the chopper to come chop off your head.

The solution? Guard the borders, as you were supposed to be doing in the first place. Stop the “Open Borders” FIASCO, and start MASS DEPORTATIONS and MASS REPATRIATIONS, by FORCE.

Yes you heard me rightly >> USE YOUR (OUR) MILITARY AND POLICE FORCES to REMOVE THE RECENTLY IMMIGRATED MOSLEM ENEMY FROM ALL WESTERN COUNTRIES. Other immigrants may need to be removed as well, but the moslem enemy is the priority.

This will only need to be violent if you don’t show overwhelming superiority in military force from the beginning. That will convince the moslem enemy you are serious and will reduce the numbers of casualties in the long run.

The goal is not to destroy them or even to terrorize them, but simply to put them back into their Middle East lock-box where they should have been kept from the very beginning. It is they who think their religion is so wonderful. Let them go back where they came from, and cook in it.

Quote# 134549

Bashar al-Assad, along with the Ba'athist Syrian government, are bourgeois Arab nationalists. The national bourgeoisie has both a progressive and reactionary character. It is progressive as a bulwark against imperialism, as the nat bourg has interests in controlling its own markets and driving out the imperialist powers. It is reactionary in that the national bourgeoisie does exploit their own working class at home.

As communists, especially communists in the imperialist countries, our job is to oppose the imperialism of our own ruling class at home. Our slogan, first and foremost, should be "Hands Off Syria!". Only the Syrians can decide who governs them; not the U.S., or Israel, or NATO, or Turkey, or Saudi Arabia. Hezbollah, Iran, and Russia, however, play a progressive role because they were invited by the Syrian government in fighting the imperialist proxies.

Communists within Syria are critical of the government, and have opposed the Assad administration's "neoliberal" reforms, but have chosen to fight along the Syrian government to drive out the imperialist powers (the U.S./NATO), their allies (Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar), and their proxy forces (Daesh, Ahrar al-Sham, Tahrir al-Sham, etc.) The smear campaign against the Syrian government has been incredible.

Quote# 134503

Judge Roy Moore, a Republican candidate for the Senate, has been the target of sexual misconduct allegations. As a result, many establishment Republicans are trying to block his nomination—even though all the allegations and ‘evidence’ have been revealed to be bogus.

These establishment Republicans include Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney and John McCain. They are all part of the Deep State swamp and they’re determined to thwart President Trump’s agenda.

They were happy to tell us they were going to expel a potential Senator because of sexual assault allegations made right before an election. These same Deep State Senators stay silent when picture evidence emerges against a sitting Democrat Senator Franken emerges.

Powerful men continue to be drawn into the morass of shame that is the ‘Sex Scandal Swamp.’ Al Franken now has more women coming forward with new sexual allegations. Bill Clinton is facing another lawsuit from women he is alleged to have abused. The former president has a history of rich payouts to his victims and even had an official “ Bimbo Eruption” squad created to pay off or destroy his many accusers.

John Conyers used taxpayer money to fly in women for his hotel trysts. Some Congressmen may have settled sexual harassment cases. If they used taxpayer money to do it, they need to go to jail.

Not all accusations should be believed. “The Rolling Stone” published a story about rape on campus based on one woman’s tale. It was completely false and they famously published a retraction. The accusations against Judge Moore also hold no water. The sexual assault claims against Trump were proved over and over to be bogus, but the legacy media enjoys calling him an abuser regardless. Judge Moore is in a similar situation. That is, it’s all about hardball politics, not sexual impropriety.

He’s doing well to fight the charges and voters will see them for what they are—baseless. I tip my cowboy hat to Judge Moore for fighting back against the horrendous lies.

Muslims can not take non mulism as friends. We see many muslims brothers and sister doing this. they are all misled. They twist islam in all sorts of ways just to please the the non-muslims. Allah says most of these muslims will go to hell. The tafsir says Umar (RA) kicked a chrisitan out of medina (arabia) and then said "take not the jews nor the chrisitans as friends".

These muslims and their views are wrong, the vast majoirty of muslims are wrong about islam and the vast majoirty of muslims will go to hell. I say most muslims will go to hell because:

Muhammad (saw) said their will be 73 sects and 72 sects will go to hell (this may be a metaphor, or may be a false hadith, who knows).....Anyway from this most Muslims will go to hell for some time. There are also hadith which say out of every 100 muslims 99 will go to hell.-Sahih Bukhari 8: 76: 536

In Sura 19:70 and 19:71 Allah says, Most Muslims will go to Hell (for at least some time), but they will be rescued. Allah also states that those who die in Jihad will go to Paradise immediately. (see tafsir for meaning). The fact that allah say most muslims will go to hell shows how misled the muslim ummah is.

Sermon 16: Transgenderism Debunked Part II
By The Rev. William H. Grimes
1 Corinthians 11:14–15 says "Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering." 1 Corinthians 6:19–20 says "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s." Leviticus 18:22 says "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
I decided to bring this topic back up because certain liberals on sites such as Irrationalwiki decided to go ahead and try to refute hard biological realities with feelings. For you men out there: do you know what it feels like to be a woman? Women, do you know what it feels like to be a man? I'm not talking about hermaphrodites here, because that is a medical condition someone is born with just like babies can be born with heart defects or anything else. Transgenderism is purely psychological, and does not involve anything hermaphroditic.
The average lifespan in the United States is 77, while the average transgendered person lives to the ripe old age of 35. "Transitioning" as they call it today is incredibly hard on the body, and solves absolutely nothing. Gender dysphoria is a disease of the mind, not of the body. What about transabled and transracial? Where are their special rights? Are we gonna start prescribing amputations of perfectly functional arms and legs next? What about bleaching your skin like Michael Jackson and getting plastic surgery like he did as well? Liberals are too dumb to see where their suspension of logic and reason is heading! IT IS HEADED TO EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS NATION IDENTIFYING AS TRANS-WHATEVER OR NON-BINARY OR AGENDER OR WHATEVEROTHERGENDERITIS THEY WANT TO CALL IT! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Men must use the men's bathroom and women the women's rooms! We cannot favor mental illness over the safety of our women and children! Liberals have lobbied all the psychological institutions to where the only prescribed treatment for the real mental illness of gender dysphoria is so-called "transitioning!" IF YOU PRESCRIBE THIS TO CHILDREN, YOU ARE COMMITTING CHILD ABUSE! WELL GLORY!!!!!!!

God is the single creator and a divine sphere and unseen.The creation of the GOD AND SON imply a person that’s distinct from the father (as becoming a human being of blood and flesh) and yet so closely akin to him as to be from the same substance with him meaning GOD as a divine sphere. Because GOD is divine he chose Virgin Mary to incarnate his persona in a human being as I mentioned above. Jesus was God’s creation to humanity as a prophet and savior.

Jesus IS NOT A JEW. Meaning Jesus Christ was ”Created” human for the sake of earthly existence so he could communicate with people in different ways. Jesus wasn’t created by a sexual interaction, meaning a sperm and an ova that make him eligiable to inherit his mother’s or father’s genes to belong to a ceratin race. The register of Jesus Christ forefathers in the New Testament is the background of his ”earthly parents”. JESUS is NOT Jewish.

What's all the big deal about 'double blind tests'...double blind tests'...?!

The public have been fooled for 40 years about eating saturated fats and cholesterol and atherosclerosis and all that stuff. Now its all being claimed as.... "well...not really...you know...maybe cholesterol really isn't so bad...maybe fats are ok....hee...hee". There were all kinds of tests with a whole village (Framingham) being studied over decades (starting from 1948). It still turns out to be wrong.

Double blind tests or any other are not infallible. It all depends on the assumptions being made to begin with, the way the experiments are designed and finally the vested interests of the people sponsoring the study and so on....

Its quite silly when entire communities of people experience and accept certain phenomena but some 'scientists' come along with their double blind tests and dismiss everything as nonsense. The scientist types like to believe that they are right and that the entire world is foolish and naive. But they are increasingly beginning to look foolish themselves. They no longer hold the authority they once did.

Coming to dowsing....it involves the mind and our spontaneous reactions to subtle natural phenomena. Testing (double blind or otherwise) always involves the Meta consciousness. Once the meta consciousness gets involved, all spontaneous and natural reactions and responses get blocked automatically. Self consciousness prevents spontaneous responses.

This is why most mental phenomena that require a natural, unhindered, uninhibited and non-self conscious state of mind, fail when tested under so called 'strict test conditions'. The test itself hinders the process.

Reasonable Conservative:
First of all, when attempting to quote the Bible, use the Christian Bible and not a Cathlic counterfeit. To wit, "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." Matthew 26:40

Relative to your false idea that real Christians, those who been Saved by the real Jesus (as opposed to believing that they were Saved by fictional Jesus, such as that of Mormons or Cathlics), may knowingly choose to sin, have you actually read the Christian Bible?? The Christian Bible teaches us that once we are Saved, we're saints--not sinners! Duh. Unfortunately the space on this message board doesn't allow the Christian to present a proper thesis on the subject. But there are good news! Brother Wally Langford is an esteemed and illustrious Christian pastor that used to post some of his Biblical sermons on youtube. You can find it by searching for his moniker there: preachthehelloutofya . In his channel you can find sermon called "you might be one, but I'm not."

It is therefore, your assignment to study the message within so that one day you may fully understand the WHOLE meaning of the Christian Bible.

Press and politicians are blind to the truth.

If you get your news from NBC, this is what you learned about yesterday’s Unite the Right rally: “Charlottesville White Nationalist Rally Violence Prompts State of Emergency.” That’s right: The problem was white nationalist violence. It was as if the demonstrators had behaved just like Black Lives Matter or masked antifa: looting, burning, stopping traffic, and roughing up bystanders. Of course, what caused the violence was hostile counter-demonstrators, many of them wearing helmets and carrying shields. If they had not been there, there would have been no violence, and the rally would have taken place as planned.

Of all people, it was Donald Trump who came the closest to getting it right, condemning “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.” This, of course, earned him near-universal condemnation. As former Vice President Joe Biden explained, “There is only one side,” and the problem was Unite the Right. This prompted a storm of retweets and similar sentiments. Virginia’s attorney general Mark Herring tweeted that “violence, chaos, and apparent loss of life in Charlottesville is not the fault of ‘many sides.’ It is racists and white supremacists.” Actress Leslie Grossman probably expressed the only-one-side view best.

Here, one side is demonstrating peacefully, though provocatively; the other side—the good side—is committing violent aggression. (Swastikas were extremely rare in Charlottesville, but they make for better “anti-racist” graphics than Confederate flags.) So this is the moral calculus of Joe Biden, the Virginia attorney general, and the rest of the Left. It wouldn’t matter if every hand lifted by Unite the Right was in strict self-defense; the violence is their fault. Racially conscious whites deserve violence simply because of what they think.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe saw only one side, in a widely praised speech, telling Unite the Right, “You came here to hurt people, and you did hurt people.” Is Terry McAuliffe a mind-reader? Would they have hurt anything or anyone if counter-demonstrators had not showed up with shields and batons, screaming and throwing smoke bombs, determined to shut down the demonstration–and hurt “Nazis”?

One young white man did crash his car into demonstrators, killing one. We don’t yet know his motives, but even if he deliberately hurt people, there was just one of him, and everyone associated with Unite the Right has condemned him.

What about the police? They were clearly either incompetent or determined to shut down the rally before it began. The swarms of uniformed men on the scene did very little to separate demonstrators from counter-demonstrators. Television has broadcast one fistfight after another, with no police in sight. Besides the driver of car—who is charged with 2nd degree murder—those swarms of police made only three arrests. What were they doing?

The fighting, which started before the rally even had a chance to begin, was the excuse for police to declare it an “unlawful assembly” and call it off. Jason Kessler, who organized the rally, has rightly pointed out that this meant counter-demonstrators exercised the “heckler’s veto,” successfully silencing people with whom they disagreed. Instead of excerpts from pro-white speeches, the only thing media consumers therefore got was Confederate flags and brawling.

But Joe Biden tells us there is “only one side” to this story. Actually, there are three sides: Unite the Right, which gathered peacefully but defended itself; anti-racists who shut them down; and the police who let them do it.

There is a clear pattern to these events that not one mainstream outlet has noted. There is confrontation only when anti-whites harass and try to stop pro-white events. The reverse never happens. Lefties and non-whites can mount the most brazenly anti-white events, unmolested and with full media approval. It would be hard to imagine a clearer example of this contract—and of the entrenched bigotry we face—than yesterday’s events.

Jason Kessler is scheduled to make a statement to the press today at 2:00 p.m. He is smart man and a brave man. I’m sure we can trust him to make an excellent case for our side.

Update: Mr. Kessler set up microphones in front of the Charlottesville city hall to make his statement. Counter-demonstrators made such a racket that it was impossible for the press to hear what he was saying. Protesters edged closer and than attacked Mr. Kessler; police escorted him away for his own safety. Once again, a pro-white message has been stifled by anti-white thugs.
