Gentle readers, you are aware, I’m sure, of Major League Baseball’s minor league boycott of Georgia, Temporary President Biden’s multiple lies about the new Georgia law that makes vote fraud just a bit more difficult, and the general political fervor—“Jim Crow,” “Jim Eagle” (which means what, exactly?), racism (of course; what isn’t these days?), voter suppression (anything that prevents vote fraud), etc.—that is roiling the nation. Even though The Washington Post gave Biden four Pinocchios—their highest recognition of lying—he won’t give up. Of course, we have no way of knowing if Biden knows what he’s saying when he reads–sort of—the Teleprompter, or what, if anything, he remembers thereafter.
What’s going on? Why the fanatical attacks on Georgia? Weren’t Republicans in that state sufficiently stupid in November of 2020? Are D/S/Cs afraid that kind of stupid may not be eternal? A few observations:
*Part of it is egomania on the part of the execrable Stacey Abrams, who is far less consequential than she imagines. Georgia must do as she demands, even though she is now claiming she doesn’t want MLB to boycott, despite the word it was she that convinced MLB to do just that.
*Part of it is Democrats/Socialist/Communists wanting to keep a grip on Georgia. If H.B.1 and a companion Senate bill don’t pass, D/S/Cs are stuck with having to cheat in enough “battleground” states to ensure they win, which could be harder now that half or so of America is going to be prepared for that in 2022 and 2024. If Georgia goes off the reservation, some of the other states might think they have the power to make it harder to cheat, and if Republicans take the White House and Congress again, they might just be angry enough, and perhaps just barely intelligent enough, to take revenge, like making election fraud difficult everywhere, or even—and I know this is unlikely—prosecuting people who committed election fraud.
*A substantial motivation is the pursuit of absolute power. Once businesses, corporations, states, even individual citizens realize they don’t have to do what D/S/Cs tell them, the wheels will rapidly come off the D/S/C machine, and when they do, people are going to be really, really angry at them.
*D/S/Cs think they’re on a roll. They’re so sure they’re mere inches from establishment of an eternal, socialist utopia, they can’t let the smallest bit of rebellion go unpunished.
Let us now turn to the equally execrable Reverend/Senator Raphael Warnock of Georgia, a beneficiary of Georgia’s 2020 fraudulent elections. As you read this, remember, he’s an ordained Christian minister:
Uh, I’m not an ordained minister, nor have I a degree in divinity, but as a Christian, I understand that without Christ’s resurrection, Christianity is in vain. Oh, and Warnock deleted that tweet. I doubt he understood or cared he was engaging in heresy, but he surely understood the political ramifications of angering Christians. Jenna Ellis also understands:
Joy Reid does not:
In the Christian faith, nothing is “more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” Christ’s sacrifice, His triumph over death, gives us all eternal life. What could possibly be more “transcendent” than that? C.S. Lewis wrote:
The New Testament writers speak as if Christ’s achievement in rising from the dead was the first event of its kind in the whole history of the universe. He is the ‘first fruits,’ the pioneer of life,’ He has forced open a door that has been locked since the death of the first man. He has met, fought, and beaten the King of Death. Everything is different because He has done so.
As Ms. Ellis notes, it is false teaching to suggest salvation comes from works, “a commitment to helping others,” as altruistic as that might be, falls far short of what is necessary for salvation, though as D/S/C doctrine, it might be considered transcendent, or at least politically useful.
There is much weirdness in Georgia—and America–these days.
Oh, and as a bit of bonus weirdness this Saturday:
Apparently Biden has discovered how to bypass the laws of physics. Airliners travel in the range of 600 MPH. How, exactly, are we going to get trains to do that? Apparently the answer is D/S/C SCIENCE!, which is not bound by physical laws, but need only be imagined. I just want to see the brakes that can bring a 600 MPH train to a stop in less than say, Nevada. Biden also said within the next decade airliners would travel at 21,000 MPH, which roughly equates to Mach 21, or 21 times the speed of sound. We know the SR-71 could travel at Mach 3+, and there are rumors of super secret military craft what can reach Mach 5, but oh dear, oh dear. Is Biden therefore suggesting high-speed trains will surpass Mach 21? SCIENCE! Start braking at the East coast, and stop, perhaps, in Hawaii?
This is the guy—a lunatic gun grabber–Biden wants to run the BATFE.
