Tony Perkins And Chuck Norris Make The Case For All LGBT People To Vote

Published

on

Tony Perkins today pointed his followers to this video — recorded by Chuck Norris and his wife, Gena — in which they claim 30 million Christian Evangelicals did not vote in the 2008 election, handing the win to Barack Obama. Now, the Norris’ are engaging in a get-ot-the-vote campaign, to register as many Christian Evangelicals as possible. If that’s not a call to action to every LGBT person, if that’s not a call to action to every progressive, liberal, and Democrat, I don’t know what is.

 

 

Chuck and Gena Norris are engaging in an ugly lie-fest, one that quotes Ronald Reagan and suggests if President Obama wins re-election, America will face “1000 years of darkness.”

Norris tells his viewers, “If we look to history, our great country and freedom are under attack. We’re at a tipping point and, quite possibly our country as we know it may be lost forever if we don’t change the course our country is headed.”

“We’re at a tipping point,” Norris says, opening with ugly fear-mongering, and claiming “our country as we know it, may be lost forever, if we don’t change direction.”

Let’s be very clear here, as the Democratic National Convention begins. If Mitt Romney wins, he will appoint radical extreme religious conservatives to the U.S. Supreme Court. America will move closer to the theocracy the GOP has been pushing for. Abortion — Roe v. Wade — will be overturned. Same-sex marriage will be banned in the U.S. Constitution. And a national commission will be formed to investigate incidents of supposed anti-Christian speech and actions. How do we know? These aren’t wild, extreme fears of liberals an progressives — these are Mitt Romney’s platform. And he’s signed the National Organization For Marriage (NOM) marriage pledge, which calls for these anti-gay, anti-democratic, anti-American policies to become law.

Tony Perkins, who heads the Family Research Council, a recognized, certified, anti-gay hate group, knows if Barack Obama wins, he and his hate group will become less and less relevant as America moves forward.

It’s time to do everything we can to make sure Tony Perkins, Chuck Norris, and their anti-gay, anti-freedom theocratic ways don’t ever become a way of life.

Supreme Court Sides with Trump on Weakening Obama-Era Contraceptive Mandate

Published

on

The Supreme Court

In a blow to progressives Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) paved the way for the Trump administration to expand exemptions for employers who have religious or moral objections to complying with the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) contraceptive mandate. Currently, the law requires employer-provided health plans to cover the cost of birth control.

The question of whether or not employers who opposed birth control would have to pay for their workers’ contraceptive measures stemmed back to 2010.

The decision Wednesday was 7-2.

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “We hold that the departments had the authority to provide exemptions from the regulatory contraceptive requirements for employers with religious and conscientious objections.”

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.

DON'T LET THE DOOR...

Rachel Maddow Can Hardly Contain Herself Reading Mary Trump’s Tell-All

Published

on

The country is awaiting the ruling on whether President Donald Trump must disclose his financial information as part of New York investigations into fraud. In her Tuesday show, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow explained that she has been through Trump’s niece’s book from cover to cover and encouraged people to look at page 185, where Mary Trump details how she ended up speaking to the New York Times about the financial records of Trump and his father.
According to the story, Times reporter Suzanne Craig appeared at Mary Trump’s door asking about the information. Mary explained that she didn’t have any of the documents, but Craig suggested that their lawyer might.
Hobbling on crutches after breaking her fifth metatarsal, Mary Trump went to the lawyer’s office where she slipped papers, disks and notes into her bag. Over the subsequent weeks, the younger Trump gathered boxes of information that she delivered under a bridge to an SUV with a reindeer nose and antlers on it.

Over time, Mary Trump discovered that her uncle and aunt had taken all of the money from Fred Trump and siphoned all of his money out of accounts and into trusts.

“My grandfather’s estate had actually been worth close to $1 billion, $1 billion when he died, I just didn’t know it yet,” wrote Mary Trump. “After I was sure [the lawyer] had gone, I grabbed copies of my grandfather’s wills, floppy disks with all the depositions from the lawsuits and some of my grandfather’s bank records, all of which I was legally entitled to as part of the lawsuit.”

DENIAL IS DANGEROUS

Bolsonaro: ‘I Drank Hydroxychloroquine and I’m Feeling Great’

Published

on

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro has reportedly contracted COVID-19 and says he’s taking hydroxychloroquine as a means to recovery. The 65-year-old confirmed the diagnosis to journalists on Tuesday as he arrived to his presidential palace.

After asking reporters to step aside, Bolsonaro removed his face mask. “See, I am fine. See you next week, God willing.”

Bolsonaro said he was suffering muscle aches, fatigue and a fever but otherwise felt “normal.” This is a man who, prior to his diagnosis, repeatedly referred to COVID-19 as “just a little flu” and said the media coverage of the pandemic was “hysteria.” He also said, “Life continues. But if the economy doesn’t work it will bring new forms of death and suicide.”

The Los Angeles Times reported that more than 65,000 Brazilians have died from COVID-19 — the second-highest death toll in the world after the United States. An additional 1.6 million people have tested positive for the virus in Brazil. Low levels of testing mean deaths and infections are likely much higher.

With his positive COVID-19 result, Bolsonaro now joins U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez. The latter two world leaders were hospitalized during treatment.
