Shocked SHOCKED over Raphael Warnock, Brad Raffensperger, Billy Evans & Noah Green, Brandon Elliot and Kurt Schlichter, Under the Fedora

“Reverend” Raphael Warnock, one of the two Democrat Senators elected under the old “let me steal elections” laws in Georgia in January tweeted out an interesting take on Easter Sunday, for a Christian reverend that is, stating that we are able to save ourselves without Christ. It caused enough of a backlash that he deleted said tweet.

Of course the only part of that story that makes me Shocked SHOCKED is that there are still people out there who are still surprised that a Democrat leader doesn’t actually believe just because he’s a “reverend”

.


Speaking of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (you know the guy who recorded his call from President Trump during the lawsuits over the GA results and then lied about their content to the media which ran with his false claims) the election was COMPLETELY on the up and up and anyone who thinks otherwise is some kind of conspiracy theorist, is in the news once again. You see there is an audit of ballots that the courts (now that it can’t change who is President anymore) are allowing and old Brad is trying to have it limited:

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger sent a request to the courts yesterday requesting that ballot images taken from the voting machines in Georgia be the only source of evidence to be used in an upcoming audit in Fulton County Georgia.  Raffensperger doesn’t want the paper ballots reviewed.

Personally I’m shocked SHOCKED that Raffensperger is apparently not delighted at the chance to prove to all the world, especially to those like me who say the election was stolen, that we are all wrong and is instead doing all he can to inhibit this count. Why you’d think he had something to hide.


I am shocked SHOCKED to see that DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of media outrage, which determines if a story is nationally newsworthy is still in full force in regard to the attack at the Capital that resulted in the death of a Capital police officer has completely disappeared from coverage and that officer William ‘Billy’ Evans is apparently not worthy of the honor of lying in state at the capital as there is no political advantage to highlighting his death.

It will be memory holed, just like Ashli Babbitt

Unexpectedly of course.


Speaking of DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of media outrage which states:

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

is certainly in play according to this piece at Althouse”

“No mention of the perps race in the headline. That is weirdly the most obvious clue to their race nowadays. #JouralismDiesInWokeness.”

Says one of the commenters on the Washington Post article “New York authorities file hate-crime charges in attack on Asian American woman.” 

There isn’t even an attacker in the headline. The only human beings in the headline are the “authorities” and the “Asian American woman.” The evildoer disappears. There’s no attacker, only an “attack.” But if there are hate crime charges, then the human mind is all important. “Attack” stresses the outward action. “Hate” requires a hater. There is a shadow of a person in the word “hate,” the gesture at a mind. 

But this person is depersonalized — depersonalized because he is black. If a white man had stomped on an old Asian-American lady, he’d get full recognition in the headline. Is that racist?

I am of course Shocked SHOCKED by this development, but still insist that it is more that sufficient and proper to prosecute a person for the actual attack rather than prosecuting someone over “hate” which is an emotion.

Remember if you can criminalize one emotion you can criminalize any.


Finally I am shocked SHOCKED to discover that neither reality nor Kurt Schlichter are the least bit concerned about the results of cause and effect of leftist talking points when they are put into action by leftist pols voted in by leftist voters in leftist cities

Apparently he like many of us on the right believe it’s axiomatic that in a republic the voters in a city get the government and thus the laws & the environment they deserve, but as this is Easter week I think the quote I used from St. Leonard of Port Maurice is even more apt: “Thy Damnation Comes from Thee.

Personally I wonder if the voters in these cities keep choosing the people who do this to them or if the people who count the votes in these cities do so.

Jon Tron vs Goop, Proving Christ, 9/11 vs Corona, Biden vs Trump, and nothing Newsworthy here: Under the Fedora

On Easter Sunday my son put on a video of the Internet comedian JonTron with his latest takedown of Gwenith Paltrow and her Goop people.

It was a hilarious takedown of what’s pretty much a bunch of people being grifted. There is a reason why he has 6.6 mil followers

The funniest thing about this? I’ll wager the vast majority of the people featured in this video would consider belief in Christianity foolishness.


Speaking of Christianity there was a great piece at Hillfaith linked by Instapundit with six proofs of the resurrection several of which I never thought of such as

The first witnesses to the empty tomb and the living Jesus were women: It’s a sad reality, but women only counted as half as reliable witnesses as men. So the fact all four of the Gospels present women as the first witnesses to the Risen Jesus is a strong indicator Matthew, Mark, Luke and John reported the facts, not what they thought would be the most credible claims

I should have thought of this myself but my favorite proof of the accuracy of scripture is one I used many years ago at my 1st personal blog:

Now lets look at the evidence. I am going to lean on Will Durant:

He first cites Josephus circa 93 AD and points out that the praise given to Jesus by a person out to please both Jews and Romans is a tad suspect but the big gun comes from a 1st man named Thallus.

Lets Jump to the Gospel of Matthew briefly:

From noon onward, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. And about three o’clock Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Some of the bystanders who heard it said, “This one is calling for Elijah.” Immediately one of them ran to get a sponge; he soaked it in wine, and putting it on a reed, gave it to him to drink. But the rest said, “Wait, let us see if Elijah comes to save him.” But Jesus cried out again in a loud voice, and gave up his spirit. Matt 27:45-50

Now Thallus the pagan isn’t going to put up with this. About 50 AD he states that the darkness is a purely natural phenomenon and just a coincidence.

Durant put this argument in its modern perspective:

the argument took the existence of Christ for granted. The denial of that existence seems never to have occurred even to the bitterest gentile or Jewish opponents of nascent Christianity.

And remember that particular fragment to the best of our knowledge predates the Gospel of Matthew that it unintentionally collaborates by two decades. The pagan provides the proof. Talk about working in mysterious ways.

You should really read the whole thing;


There are many candidates for some of the lamest arguments on twitter but this one is big

The answer to this is so obvious that it was almost a waste of time to tweet it.

Of course there is the possibility that this is a lab virus released accidentally in that case there is a murder to be upset at, but I’m sure he’d consider that racist.


As I mentioned during my midnight livestream podcast (available here) had a lot of fun with people insisting that Trump is a fool and this corona virus conferences are hurting him who are oddly not willing to bet $500 bucks and give me points to back up their beliefs. Apparently “experts” and those who don’t even like try know why:

Wallace noted, “In all of our [Fox News] polls for months, Biden had an 8-9 point lead, and that’s now gone. It’s dead even.” He continued:

It seems to me as this virus goes on, that instead of this being a choice between the president and Joe Biden, as a lot of elections are, I think that this election is going to end up being a referendum on President Trump and the handling of the coronavirus.

As we get into September and October after Labor Day, I think people are going to make a judgment, and they’ll understand, the president didn’t create the virus, so I think they’re going to be fair-minded about it. Do they think he handled the health crisis well? Do they think he handled the economic crisis well?

If they do, I don’t see how he gets beat. If they don’t, I don’t see how he could win.

And that’s not even taking into account that the polls have been undercounting Trump supporters from day 1


Finally, in a time of social distancing here is a story that surprised me:

 Around 400 people were at a party at an East Bakersfield apartment complex when dozens of shots rang out, wounding six people early Saturday morning, according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.

Based on evidenced recovered at the scene, KCSO says, it appears at least one partygoer fired back at the suspects in a white sedan that fled the scene. Officials said nearly 100 empty shell casings of multiple calibers were recovered at the scene in the 3500 block of Pioneer Drive.

Even at a time of social distancing 400 at a party in an apartment complex is a lot. You would think that a story like this during social distancing time would be front page news everywhere but I suspect it will not be because of this line:

The suspects were only described by deputies as four black males, in a white sedan.

Now I could be wrong, we might see this as a lead everywhere and see the Governor of California condemn the lack of social distancing here, but I suspect I’d have a harder time finding a taker for a $10 bet on this than I have for the Biden election one.
