Kim Davis: In SOTU Obama Ignored Christians Who Are ‘Mashed Down, Literally, With His Agenda’

Kentucky Clerk Offended By Obama’s Claim Everyone Is Free To Marry Who They Love

Right after attending President Barack Obama‘s State of the Union Address this week, Kim Davis gave just one interview, to a Christian news agency. The anti-gay Rowan County clerk who still refuses to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples told EWTN’s Jason Calvi that she was disappointed by the President’s call to end hate and bigotry against Muslims, because he ignored people of the Christian faith.

Christians, Davis says, are victims of Obama’s agenda.

“One of the things that he focused on was that we should not discriminate against Muslims or persecute them,” Davis told Calvi, “but he never once said anything about the people of the Christian faith who are being so tried and tested and being mashed down, literally, with his agenda.” 

Davis did not give any specific instances of Christians being “mashed down, literally, with his agenda.”

The defiant county clerk scored a highly coveted ticket to the State of the Union thanks to her friends at the anti-gay hate group, Family Research Council, via Ohio far-right Republican Congressman Jim Jordan.

Unsurprisingly, Davis also wasn’t pleased about President Obama’s comments in support of marriage for same-sex couples.

“He had made the statement that everybody was free to marry who they love, and, of course, that’s the stand that I stood again,” David to Calvi. “And it’s not, for me, it never was a gay or a lesbian issue. It’s about standing up for the word of the God and as God had defined marriage from the very beginning as between one man and one woman, and that’s what I stood for.”

Davis did approve of one comment President Obama made during his 59 minute address.

“I did agree with one remark that he made about how we have to stand strong, help those that are less fortunate,” Davis said, “and I think that is the basis of the Christian faith is the brotherly love, you know?”

911 Called After Black Teens Attacked by Knife-Wielding Homeless Man – Cops Show Up and Draw Guns on the Kids

Published

on

The L.A. County Sheriffs’ Dept. is once again under fire after witnesses say three Black teens were attacked by a homeless man wielding a knife. 911 was called and the police showed up – drawing at least one assault rifle and several guns on at least one of the teenagers.

This video show witnesses screaming at police, who appear entirely uninterested in hearing their accounts, and telling them to step back.

“It’s the other guy!” one bystander can be heard repeatedly yelling at the police.

“Put your guns down,” another person urges. “They’re kids.”

Off camera, one person repeatedly tells the teens to “put your hands up,” clearly afraid the child will be shot. “They don’t care cause they Black.”

“They didn’t do nothing at all,” they add.

“It was not them,” another bystander says.

“They’re just kids,” says another.

“Tammi Collins, the mother of one of the teens, says her son and a couple of friends were sitting at a bus stop when a homeless man asked if they had any crack and then tried to steal their stuff,” TMZ reports. “She says the man became super aggro, ripped his shirt off and pulled a knife on them, and attempted to stab them. She says the kids fended the man off with their skateboards.”

At least four police vehicles can be seen in the video.

No arrests were made, but in the video one teen can be seen on his knees, his hands up, appearing to be handcuffed. The homeless person was not found.

“The L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. tells TMZ, the 911 call came in as an assault with a deadly weapon,” TMZ reports. “specifically, 2 adult males hitting another man with a skateboard. The kids were detained and after deputies spoke with them and witnesses, they were released and no arrests were made. The Dept. doesn’t know what happened to the homeless man.”

Trump-Loving ‘True Victim of the Pandemic’ Nikki Haley Slammed for Complaining Her Birthday Popcorn Order Was Late

Published

on

Nikki Haley is once again being widely mocked for a tweet. A few weeks ago it was this tweet, which basically was a very effective ad for Joe Biden:

Now, it’s something far less political – or is it?

Monday morning President Donald Trump’s former U.S. Ambassador to the UN complained about… late birthday popcorn.

This one tweet seems to sum up the opinions of many:

Many mocked Haley for being tone deaf to Trump’s destruction of the U.S. Postal Service.

Many reminded the former Republican governor of South Carolina that we’re in the middle of a pandemic.

Many mocked her for her horrible record or priorities:

Many mocked her for her support of President Donald Trump:

And some, well, just mocked her for being cheap:

Fox & Friends Furious ‘Gym Owners Are Dying,’ Because ‘Politicians’

Published

on

“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade expressed anger Monday morning over gyms that are not allowed to re-open, or have to restrict the number of people allowed inside during the coronavirus pandemic. The number of COVID-19 cases in the country has doubled in just a few weeks to over 5 million.

“They’re dying. These gym owners are dying,” Kilmeade told his Fox News viewers, with not even a shred of understanding that in reality, 165,000 Americans have literally died from the virus.

“They have small margins anyway and they can’t do anything because these politicians won’t let ’em,” Kilmeade, clearly angry, snarled.

Kilmeade’s guest, “Body by Jake” creator Jake Steinfeld, told viewers, “Don’t quit,” and “be dilligent.”

But as soon as he started to give tips on how to stay healthy at home, which he said is “so important,” Kilmeade tried to cut him off.

“Gotcha,” Kilmeade said.
