CNN'S BIAS AND IGNORANCE
The talking heads on CNN make so many biased and ignorant comments about conservatives and Christians that I hardly consider it news anymore and seldom even bother to comment. This is especially true of Don Lemon. But yesterday, he went so far beyond offensive and made me angry enough that I had to call him out on it.
During an interview with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Lemon was talking about the tearing down of statues of the Founders because they weren’t perfect people when he said this:
“Jesus Christ, if that’s who you believe in, Jesus Christ, admittedly, was not perfect when he was here on this Earth.” Shockingly, Cuomo, who is Catholic and should know better, let that slide by without objection. It suggests that he subscribes to the same strange form of Catholicism as Nancy Pelosi, who seems to think that abortion is a sacrament.
The Bible makes it very clear in numerous places that Christ was the only perfect person ever to walk the Earth. This article at Faithwire.com cites a few of the passages.
Among those verses are that Jesus “knew no sin” (2 Corinthians 5:21), was “a lamb without blemish or spot” (1 Peter 1:19) and is “holy and blameless, unstained by sin” (Hebrews 7:26). In John 10:30, Jesus says, “I and the Father are one,” and Matthew 5:48 tells us that “your Father which is in Heaven is perfect.”
It’s bad enough that CNN has become a fountain of stupidity, but the stupidity has now crossed the line into blasphemy. It’s also telling that a top anchor on CNN is so utterly out of touch with the majority of Americans, who are Christians. The media’s hostility to people of faith is obvious, but now, so is the fact that they’re hostile toward a belief system about which they don’t even know the most fundamental tenet.
I believe there’s a word for hating people you know nothing about: “bigotry.” Liberals might not care if they commit blasphemy, but maybe that will force them to do a little self-examination and, to use one of their favorite phrases, “educate themselves.”
TRUMP ON HANNITY
Last night, President Trump gave an exclusive interview to Fox News’ Sean Hannity. You can hear the entire interview at the link, and read excerpts of the main points, including Trump’s assertion that Joe Biden has been “brainwashed” by the far left, and that when Biden said he was taking cognitive tests “constantly,” he really meant “COVID tests.” That would make more sense, in more ways than one.
WILL JUSTICE BE SERVED?
As exasperating as the news is that Judge Emmet “Captain Ahab” Sullivan refused to comply with an order by the DC Circuit Court of Appeals and drop the case against Michael Flynn, it’s hardly unexpected. After all, the original Captain Ahab just kept pursuing his great white whale until (spoiler alert!) it finally dragged him down to his watery grave.
The investigation of the attempted coup against the Trump Administration has uncovered widespread misconduct in the FBI and DOJ, including evidence that Flynn was set up, he did nothing wrong and the FBI knew it, and exculpatory evidence that should have been turned over to his attorneys was hidden. The DOJ rightly requested that the case be dropped, which is the prosecutors’ prerogative. But Sullivan, attempting to act as both judge and prosecutor, still refuses, even after being ordered by his superiors to hang it up. He’s clinging to a novel legal theory that if a defendant changes his plea, he can be charged with perjury for making the plea he withdrew (and never mind that we now know Flynn’s initial guilty plea was coerced: after having lost his job, reputation, home and life savings, he was being threatened with having the same done to his son if he didn’t plead guilty.)
It's obvious that there is no real case against Flynn, but Sullivan apparently hopes either to force Trump to pardon Flynn so it can be made into a political issue, or else drag the case out beyond the election in hopes that anti-Flynn conspirator Joe Biden is elected. Then the coup cabal can return to power, kill the investigation into their own misconduct, cover up their crimes and go right back to their unconstitutional abuses of government power against political opponents, just as if Hillary had been elected in 2016.
So now, the case will have to be heard again by the entire DC Circuit Court. If there is any justice remaining in Washington at all, let us pray that the judges quickly dispense with this unfunny farce, release Flynn so that he can get on with the serious legal business of suing the pants off of the people who targeted him, and order that Sullivan be removed from the bench and have to run 15 laps around the courthouse. I know that last part isn’t technically within their constitutional powers, but that hasn’t been much of a factor in this case so far.
COVID-19 IS A DEMOCRAT
More proof that the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus is a registered Democrat: New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio has banned all large gatherings though September because they might spread the virus…except “social justice” protests, of course.
Meanwhile, the Democrat mayor of Houston canceled the GOP Convention, claiming it might spread the virus, just weeks after he participated in mass anti-police protests in the streets of his own city. Republicans have filed a lawsuit over that.
In a related story, I saw a “health expert” on Fox News claiming that this week’s surge in coronavirus cases was due to people being careless at Fourth of July celebrations. Since the incubation period is 2-14 days, with the average being 4-5 days for symptoms even to appear, and he was saying this just four days after the holiday weekend, I find it rather hard to believe that all those people contracted it on the Fourth and already were showing symptoms and had seen doctors and been diagnosed and counted just four days later. Gee, I wonder if there were any other large gatherings where people were careless about social distancing that started before the Fourth of July?...
