Colorado Elects Republican Exorcist Who Believes Gay People ‘Want Your Soul’



Colorado just elected a former Navy pastor who tried to exorcise President Obama of demons and believes gay people are soul stealers. And that’s just for starters.

Voters have cast their ballots and in perhaps the most stunning race in the nation, Colorado has elected Tea Party Republican Pastor Gordon Klingenschmitt to represent them in the State House. And this wasn’t even a close race. “Dr. Chaps,” as he likes to be called, who, as ordained Pentecostal Minister runs the Pray In Jesus Name Project, won with a reported 70 percent of the vote. 

Representative-elect Klingenschmitt says that while a Navy pastor (he “left” the military under dubious circumstances) he “exorcised” the “sin” of homosexuality from many gay and lesbian service members.

But military members weren’t his only subjects.

He claims he exorcised a woman who had been raped of the “foul spirit of lesbianism,” and even says he has performed an exorcism on President Obama.

Klingenschmitt says gay people “want your soul.” 

“They won’t be satisfied with your money. They don’t really want the t-shirts. They want your soul. They want you to disobey God so that you go to Hell with them. It’s not enough that they go to Hell for disobeying God, they want you to disobey God so that we all go to Hell. That’s the Devil’s goal in the end.”

He says that gay people are “cooperating with the Devil,” and that “there is something unhuman inside of them,” and insists same-sex marriage is child abuse.

“What is the most cruel thing you can do to a child? After physical or sexual abuse, the most cruel thing you can do to a child is take away their mother. That’s how homosexual ‘marriage’ causes child abuse, by taking away the child’s mother (or father) and telling the child ‘your need for a mother is less than our right for homosexual pleasure.'”

In 2012, Klingenschmitt said President Obama was working on creating “homosexual bonus pay” for LGBT service members in same-sex relationships, and gay people were “stealing” kids and wanted to “recruit children into homosexuality.”

Over the summer, Dr. Chaps sent supporters an email claiming gay Democratic U.S. Congressman Jared Polis will “join ISIS in beheading Christians, but not just in Syria, right here in America.” He was forced to respond to attacks from his own party, so he stated “some Democrats do not have a sense of humor” and don’t understand “hyperbole.”

And last year, Klingenschmitt claimed that neither two men nor “three women and a dog” are going to “mate” and have a child — and that’s why gays have to “recruit the children of heterosexuals,” to “propagate the gay species.”

Trump Is ‘Untethered to Reality’ and His Thanksgiving Rant Proves It: CNN’s Berman



CNN host John Berman on Friday lit into President Donald Trump for going on an unhinged Thanksgiving rant about the 2020 election in which he once again falsely claimed that he won.

Berman in particular zeroed in on Trump’s seething anger at Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason, who asked the president on Thursday if he’d concede that he lost the election.

“He was yelling at Jeff Mason, who is the most mild-mannered reporter in America, who was asking one of the most obvious questions in America, which is, ‘Will you concede the race that you lost?’” Berman said. “I think it gave a window into where the president is this morning and how untethered to reality he may be.”

Guest Ron Brownstein shared Berman’s assessment and talked about the harm it’s doing to the United States.

“[He’s] doing real damage,” Brownstein said. “You’ve seen the polling: Three-quarters of Republicans now believe the election was stolen. We’ve never seen anything like this, an effort by a president to systemically undermine the results of the election.”

Trump Serves Up Paranoid Election Conspiracy Rant for Thanksgiving: ‘Flick of a Switch Can Change Course of History’



President Donald Trump on Thanksgiving broke weeks of refusing to answer questions from reporters, and focusing his anger on Georgia called its Republican Secretary of State “an enemy of the people” while brewing up an insane new conspiracy theory.

After praising GOP Senators in two run-off elections fighting to keep their seats, Trump said he told Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, “you have a fraudulent system.”

“You have a system where the flick of a switch or the putting in of a new chip can change the course of history.”

He also falsely claimed voting rights advocate and former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams had illegally “harvested” 850,000 ballots. In reality, Abrams says 750,000 Georgia voters have requested absentee ballots.

‘No I Can’t Say That’: Trump Says He Will Not Concede – but Will Exit White House if Electoral College Makes ‘Mistake’



President Donald Trump used the occasion of Thanksgiving, weeks after Election Day, to declare he will not concede.

Speaking to reporters after calling troops overseas – at 1:16 AM their time, several hours later than scheduled – the President was asked if he will finally concede.

“No I can’t say that at all,” Trump replied, the first time he’s taken questions from reporters in weeks.

President-elect Joe Biden has 306 Electoral College votes, against Trump’s 232.

He also said the Electoral College members will have made a “mistake” if they do not declare him the winner of the 2020 presidential election, as Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs reports.

But he also said he would leave the White House if Biden is the official winner. (Trump frequently denies making remarks he has made.)

Trump, however, is not planning on believing the results.

“I don’t know what is going to happen. I know one thing, Joe Biden did not get 80 million votes,” he added.
