Former GOP Gubernatorial Candidate: God Removed Trump From Office for Being Too Pro-LGBTQ



During Sunday’s “Swamp Rangers” radio program, radical anti-LGBTQ activist Scott Lively declared that God stripped Donald Trump of the presidency because of Trump’s promotion of the LGBTQ agenda by giving a gay man, Richard Grenell, prominent positions within his administration.

Lively was an ardent supporter of the former president and had hoped that Trump would use his presidency to destroy the LGBTQ movement by enacting Russian-style anti-gay laws in the United States. Since that didn’t happen, Lively said that God had no choice but to remove Trump from office.

Lively lamented that Trump was good on just about every issue, “except on the homosexual issue, which I think is his biggest mistake” and “the reason why he lost the election.”

“He defied God on a fundamental tenet of the Bible and never repented of it,” Lively said. “If Donald Trump was, as I believe, God’s man in the White House for four years, why did God not preserve it? Because if God had given him favor, nothing that mankind could have done could have removed him from that office. And yet the one thing that he did during that time that would virtually guarantee God’s favor being removed was to put his own personal stamp of approval on behavior that God condemns in the harshest possible terms in the Bible, which is specifically male homosexuality.”

“Trump fully endorsed and backed and applauded [Richard] Grenell,” Lively added, “[who] was an outspoken advocate for the central doctrine of the progressive movement, which is queer theory.”

‘If So I Am Elvis Presley’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Dragged for Calling Biden ‘A Socialist’



U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is steering away from the Holocaust, at least so far this week, but out of nowhere and for no discernible reason Tuesday night she laid into “Socialist” President Joe Biden.

It did not go well for her.

By any definition President Biden is no socialist.

In fact, just so the Georgia Republican Congresswoman is clear, socialism generally requires, as Merriam-Webster notes, a “collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.”

Aside from the coronavirus vaccine – and those aspects were set by Republican President Donald Trump –nothing comes close.

If she really wants to stretch, Merriam-Webster offers this: “a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.”

Literally what President Biden is fighting: the massive pay inequity.

Here’s what Rep. Greene said:

She was roundly mocked.

Perhaps the most appropriate response came from Benjamin Dreyer, a writer and copy editor, the copy chief at Random House and the author of Dreyer’s English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style.

A sampling from some others:

Reporters Photograph Trump With Huge Notes Scratched on a Pad: ‘I Want No Quid Pro Quo’



Wrongly Claims Sondland’s Damning Testimony Clears Him

President Donald Trump appeared briefly on the White House law and in a rare instance was carrying a pad with notes on it. Several reporters were able to see the large, hand-written notes scratched into the pad with a large black marker.

“I WANT NOTHING, I WANT NOTHING, I WANT NO QUID PRO QUO,” his notes say, according to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins.

The president, in an attempt to discredit the damning testimony from Gordon Sondland, also refuted his EU Ambassador, telling reporters “I’m always in a good mood.”

NBC and CNBC News’s Carl Quintanilla managed to get a photograph of the president’s notes:

CNN’s Jim Acosta reports Trump actually characterized Sondland’s damning and damaging testimony as having cleared him. That is false.
