Justice Is Coming For You…

…and it will activate according to the operation of mercy as released and determined by your will and your choices…

ttaf supporter, you who tried to tell me it was “God’s Will” for him to be elected, you who whined and cried because your days were being interrupted and your were not being given the chance to just indulge your desires at the expense of the stranger and alien in your land…

You who told me that ttaf would gather godly people around him…well you were wrong.

Are you paying attention to what is happening with Paul Manafort?  I already KNOW the answer is no, because you do not pay attention to anything but Fox News.

 

It is sad to watch your incisive and aware mind awake be dulled by the “bon-bons” of propaganda and ideology.

 

There is still a chance for you, ttaf supporter.  I know from experience that admitting you are wrong, after the difficulty of doing it, is the most clean and expiating experience, poising one to at last be found among the sheep rather than the goats.

 

 

Even The Elect…are Deceived

ttaf supporter:  this is the kind of treatment I have received for transition, and the kind of face that your support of the monster ttaf shows to the world and all around…especially those you love.

This is why I have waay withdrawn, and will not come near again unless you find the way of metanoia

Another great idea to #MAGA! Let’s import…asbestos???

This is a real thing, ttaf supporter, as verified by Snopes.

Just LOOK at that face, in the middle of a Russian propaganda slogan…and you tried to tell me this idjut was good for America, that he was a patriot, and that Hillary was beholden to the Russians…

I have lost every ounce of respect for you.

The Russian propaganda reads as follows:

“Donald is on our side! … He supported the head of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, who stated that his agency would no longer deal with negative effects potentially derived from products containing asbestos. Donald Trump supported a specialist and called asbestos ‘100% safe after application.'”

Get your mind around it:  you support Russian control of our country…and you do it in God’s Name because of your slavish lap-doggery to your TV and radio Wormtongues…

Deplorable, go find your basket, Sassy.


“These are pallets of asbestos, sealed with plastic and stamped with the image of the president whose EPA has just approved it for use in the United States.

“We have this week started importing this asbestos from Russia, the only country that still makes it. If you are wondering why the writing encircling the picture of the president is in Russian, that’s why; it’s not an American-made product.

“Asbestos used to be manufactured and used worldwide, but its popularity waned sharply when the world discovered that asbestos is a particularly bad cancer-causing agent. It causes thousands of deaths in the U.S. each year to this day, 29 years after being banned.

“The Russian who owns this asbestos company is a friend of that country’s president. For some reason, our president here in the U.S. has decided to let our country again import and use this known carcinogen, from this company owned by this friend of the Russian president. It’s very strange.”

How they did it (and will likely try again): GRU hackers vs. US elections | Ars Technica

This article is important because it lays out the actual known evidence regarding what a foreign power did in our national elections…and they did it in service of their own interests, and not in favor of America’s interests.

You should watch the video I just posted before you read this article…but…

I cannot stress that enough, ttaf supporter.  Putin is NOT America’s friend, trying to save us from “the evil Hillary Clinton”.

Can you not remember that the big accusation against Hillary was that she was in the pocket of Russia, that she would sell out America to Russian interests?  Can you not connect with the wrecked reasoning and toxic logic that you are now mired in, twisting yourself in pretzels to preserve your illusions?

Your precious GOP has sold you out…in the interest of greed and power.  And now you must prostitute yourself to believe that ttaf has any legitimacy at all in any way shape or form.

Try to turn it around in your mind for a brief moment:  leave everything the same…all the evidence, the indictments, everything…and then just switch out ttaf’s name and Hillary’s name…

NOW how do you feel?  Is that okay with you now?

And if it isn’t, then get on your knees and repent of being a mindless, complacent old fool, and for compromising every single truth you ever stood for.

“In a press briefing just two weeks ago, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced that the grand jury assembled by Special Counsel Robert Mueller had returned an indictment against 12 officers of Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate of the Russian General Staff (better known as Glavnoye razvedyvatel’noye upravleniye, or GRU).

“The indictment was for conducting “active cyber operations with the intent of interfering in the 2016 presidential election.”The filing [PDF] spells out the Justice Department’s first official, public accounting of the most high-profile information operations against the US presidential election to date.

“It provides details down to the names of those alleged to be behind the intrusions into the networks of the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the theft of emails of members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign team, and various efforts to steal voter data and undermine faith in voting systems across multiple states in the run-up to the 2016 election.

“The allegations are backed up by data collected from service provider logs, Bitcoin transaction tracing, and additional forensics. The DOJ also relied on information collected by US (and likely foreign) intelligence and law enforcement agencies.

“Reading between the lines, the indictment reveals that the Mueller team and other US investigators likely gained access to things like Twitter direct messages and hosting company business records and logs, and they obtained or directly monitored email messages associated with the GRU (and possibly WikiLeaks). It also appears that the investigation ultimately had some level of access to internal activities of two GRU offices…”

Japanese Internment Camp Prisoner Satsuki Ina on Family Separation at the Border

Dear Monster Lover:

It is with much sorrow and grief that I write…because I know you will take refuge in your martyr pronouncements of “So Be It” and other defense mechanisms that you have used to cover up the essential truth you have been fleeing from:  that you have lost your stride in the bogs of self-pity, and that you now believe things that would have appalled you years ago.

I want you to feel the separation that is being forced on these children.

I want you to grapple with the reality that you helped put these children here, with your vote and callous hard-hearted blindness to the reality that your beloved conservatism has been HIJACKED…and all of you on the plane do nothing because they let you sit in 1st Class and have free drinks.

You once bewailed that you were “not being allowed to just be an old foolish person who was indulged in peace and not confronted with opposition”…yeah.  You who have not been hauled off to some internment camp, you want that…

…while you support the actions of an administration who deny the actual existential freedom of children and doom them to a lifetime crippled by trauma and maladaptive brain development…

because they aren’t as important as you are…I guess you see yourself as more “the least” than they are and so you shove them out of the way and shunt them aside so you can gobble up your last morsels of comfort.

You watch programs and listen to programs that croon and lull…while simply ignoring the actual truth of the Gospel Message.  I am heartsick and repulsed with the wallow you have made in the plains of Idolatry and Complacency.

There is still a chance for you.  Repent…repudiate your vote for ttaf….begin to speak the truth you know in your bones.

A wise person changes their mind…a fool never.

What are some of the long term effects that these children in detention may have to live with?

I am a psychotherapist, so I work with children who have been traumatized and what they are experiencing is definitely trauma. One of the worst traumas for children is to be separated from their caregivers and then placed in what they calling “temporary detention facilities.” But it’s indefinite detention—they have no idea how long they’re going to be held. They have no idea if they’ll ever see their parents again.

That level of anxiety causes tremendous emotional stress, and we know from the research in neuroscience that constant release of these stress hormones can affect a child’s ability to learn, a child’s ability to self-manage, to regulate themselves.

The long term impact that I’ve seen in my own Japanese American community is this hyper-vigilance, this need to constantly prove themselves, and always being on edge. Japanese Americans are viewed often as the model minority but I see the behavior of needing to strive and not offend and belong and maybe give up their own personal aspirations to fit in has come at a great sacrifice and is a reaction to having been incarcerated unjustly.

You left the prison camp when you were two and half years old. How did those years affect you?

This kind of treatment has consequences for a lifetime for a child. The trauma effect is pretty severe when there’s been captivity trauma. We were unjustly incarcerated when we weren’t guilty of anything.

Today I live with anxiety about the possibility of random accusations or being blamed for something. That’s constantly present. So we are always working hard to please people and not cause trouble. There’s a constant need to be perfect. We don’t show up in the criminal justice system but we end up with a lot of psychosomatic disorders and symptoms resulting from over-achievement. We question our integrity and worthiness. I’m over-educated, for example. I have a Bachelors, Masters, PhD, I’m a licensed therapist, a certified gerontologist, the list goes on.

That high level of anxiety has given me high blood pressure. A lot of us who were incarcerated as children have high blood pressure. A study by Dr. Gwendolyn Jensen found that Japanese men who were detained had a 2.1 greater risk of cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular mortality, and premature death than Japanese men in Hawaii who were not imprisoned. [The study found the youngest detainees reported more post-traumatic stress symptoms and unexpected and disturbing flashback experiences.]

The Department of Health and Human Services released pictures on Wednesday taken at a shelter detaining 1,500 boys. Near the cafeteria, there’s a mural with Trump’s face on it. The mural reads: “Sometimes losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.” This is a quote from his book The Art of the Deal. What goes through your mind when you hear that?

That is overt, paternalistic brainwashing. It implies that what’s happening to them is some beneficial oversight. And the message is really saying you need to accept this situation that you’re in and that there will be a benefit to you. That is a common message of an oppressor or a captor to get control over the victim. It’s appalling.

One of the ways you know you’re a victim of mass incarceration is that the perpetrator uses euphemistic language to distort the reality of what’s being done to them.

This is what they told us when we were at the prison camps: This is for your own good. We’re protecting you from harm that others may direct toward you and this is a way for you to show your loyalty. And I think even after the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans, many people still believe that.

Evangelical conservatives are proving their harshest critics right – The Washington Post

I am linking to this article because I think it is absolutely crucial for every person of faith to understand that they are right now in the Valley of Decision, and must choose between Empire or The Kingdom of God…and the two could not be more different.

“Patriotism”, “Respecting the flag”, “supporting the military”…all of these things are now become code for “Support Empire America” in every way without question…even if it is in direct contradiction to the teachings and example of Jesus Christ.

The famous verse to “Choose this day whom you will serve” is become a period of time, and how one chooses now will dictate whether or not one participates in Idolatry or True Religion (which is summarized nicely for us by the half-brother of Jesus in his epistle James).

Please consider the words and implications of this article very carefully.

Robert P. Jones, author of “The End of White Christian America,” observes, “One of the most astounding shifts in modern politics has been the utter transformation of white evangelical Protestants from being confident self-described ‘values voters,’ who measured candidates for office against a high bar of moral character, to anxious and unwavering Trump supporters who have largely dropped these standards for a candidate they believe will deliver policies that benefit them.”

He explains that “white evangelicals have exchanged an ethic of principle that might hold a political leader accountable to consistent standards for a consequentialist ends-justify-the-means posture that simply stops interrogating character, the quality of leadership, or the morality of actions when it’s beneficial.”

There’s an app for that!

Her eyes bugged out
(like reason on the run)
and spittle flew
as she waggled her sign
and bawled her slogans
like incantations.
She thought she was sharing Jesus…
she thought in vain,
as people parted
and passed her by
like the Red Sea shrinking
back from the touch
of Pharaoh’s Army tred.

But one true girl,
too young to see
her crazed and frothing fear
marched up to her
like Moses’s Staff,
and tugged at her
drab and brown mask,
until the woman noticed
and looked down,
to see what missive
the little gift of grace might impart.

“Ya know there is an app for that!”
she said forcefully!
The woman’s eyebrows crawled up
like earthworms from the light,
and the girl saw her question,
and simply answered
“For hate and meanness,
there is an app for that.

It’s called Love”.

She walked away,
and the woman was left behind,
bereft of even her hate…
but pregnant with
the path and possibility of following
where a little child will lead.
