When did you get serious about religion/politics? (Sun, Jul 14, 2019)
The Hake Report, Sunday, July 14, 2019, 9 AM PT on The Hake Report channels: YouTube, DLive, Periscope, Twitch, Mixer, and maybe not Facebook, since it was my account that was associated with Jesse’s show page’s so-called “Hate Speech” violation. SMH.
Check out audio podcast of the show on Apple/iTunes, TuneIn, Spreaker, Stitcher, and SoundCloud.
(I’m also live Mon-Fri 9 AM PT in the fourth hour of The Jesse Lee Peterson Show stream, on Jesse’s channels… that is, those channels that aren’t suspended for “hate speech.” So not FB or Twitch. Thank you, Jesse!)
I started about 5 minutes early today, to read a little news…
SOME NEWS UPDATES:
(Drudge) THIS WEEKEND: Exorcism for entire city... Holy water from helicopter… (The Guardian) Bishop will take to the skies to exorcise an entire Colombian city. The Colombian Army is to provide a helicopter for the sprinkling of holy water on the area beset by violent crime! Monsignor Rubén Darío Jaramillo Montoya, the bishop of Buenaventura, will say a prayer intended to purge the area of demonic infestation. The city is beset by violence, drug smuggling and poverty. Montoya disclosed the exorcism shortly after a 10-year-old girl was tortured and murdered. He told local radio: “We have to drive the devil out of Buenaventura, to see if we can restore the peace and tranquility that our city has lost due to so many crimes, acts of corruption and with so much evil and drug trafficking that invades our port. We want to go around the whole of Buenaventura, from the air, and pour holy water on to it to see if we exorcise and get out all those demons that are destroying our port, so that God’s blessing comes and gets rid of all the wickedness that is in our streets.” The exorcism, reportedly by Army helicopter, was to take place during the city’s annual patron saints’ festivities.
Buenaventura, on Colombia’s Pacific coast, was named as the country’s most violent place in 2014. According to Human Rights Watch (a filthy far-left liberal organization, but that’s beside the point of this story), they perhaps accurately say that “many of the city’s neighbourhoods are dominated by powerful criminal groups that commit widespread abuses, including abducting and dismembering people, sometimes while still alive, then dumping them in the sea. The groups maintain ‘chop-up houses’ (casas de pique) where they slaughter victims, according to witnesses, residents, the local Catholic church and some officials.” Since then, a marked improvement has been seen in some neighbourhoods after residents took action to regain control. But local media reported 51 homicides in the city in the first five months of this year, 20 more than the same period last year.
Although exorcisms are usually carried out on individuals, in 1890 Pope Leo XIII added a prayer, Exorcism against Satan and the Fallen Angels, for resolving demonic infestation. Last year, the Vatican held an exorcism training course for priests amid claims that demands for deliverance from demonic possession had greatly increased across the world. The Vatican-backed International Association of Exorcists, which represents more than 200 Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox priests, said the increase represented a “pastoral emergency.”
Side note about Human Rights Watch: Here’s a headline and sub-headers giving you context to why I call them filthy and far-left: “US: Family Separation Harming Children, Families: United States officials are separating migrant children from their families at the border, causing severe and lasting harm: 5-year-olds held without adult caregivers.”
(MY REACTION: There’s a saying for this. It’s called DGA_. It means I don’t care. It is NOT causing them long-term harm. The parents’ lack of morals is what’s harming the kids. Most of the time, I’d venture to speculate, they’re single parents. And they’re CHEATING THE SYSTEM. That’s evil, that’s a bad example, that’s undermining the moral foundation of the kids. They’re gonna grow up hating America and feeling entitled. ANYWAY… I’m being passionate; I need to chill.)
OMG: They also have the “Trending” topics: “Reproductive Rights and Abortion,” as well as “Europe: Refugees and Migrants’ Rights,” “Philippines’ ‘War on Drugs,’” and “Immigration.” Some of those topics have perhaps less business being there than others. Killing babies is not a human right. Just FYI. Much less “a woman’s right.” OK, calm down, James. Haha.
(Drudge) Merkel sits through anthems after shaking spells… (France 24) Angela Merkel sat through national anthems on Thursday during an official ceremony, as the German chancellor sought to prevent a repeat of uncontrollable shaking with a rare change of protocol. After greeting Denmark's new Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen (ANOTHER WOMAN! SMH!), a smiling Merkel walked her over to a podium where both leaders took their seats. (BETA FEMALES!) The unusual move came a day after a similar ceremony when the German chancellor was seen shaking involuntarily for the third time in public in less than a month, reviving questions over her health. (BETA HEALTH! ...Like I’m one to talk, but it’s true!)
Merkel began trembling Wednesday as national anthems were being played at the reception of Finnish Prime Minister Antti Rinne — it was visible although less severe than during the first episode in June. Later she told journalists that her health was no cause for concern, saying that she was simply still in a phase of "processing" a previous shaking spell, but that "there has been progress…. I will have to live with it for a while," added Merkel, who turns 65 this week. "Just like how it has come, one day it will go away too," she said. (WHOA! IS THAT MORBID?) That first bout of shaking was blamed on dehydration. But a second episode struck a week later.
Merkel has been leader of Europe's biggest economy for almost 14 years. Frequently called the European Union's most influential leader and the most powerful woman in the world, Merkel has said she will leave politics at the end of her term, in 2021.
UPDATE: (Drudge) Merkel Turns Paris Visit Into Show of Fitness After Tremors…
When did you get serious about religion and/or politics? Or are you?? LoL.
And what did you do in becoming “serious”?
I’ll tell my story:
HS: Christian music. Forest Home.
College: Bible. Writing.
Pouring myself into work. Calling politicians’ offices. Going to rallies. Trying to “speak up.”
A lot of us get riled up about one thing or another, but if we don’t put first things first, we won’t get it right. That’s an idea I got from Jesse and Joel, actually!
Caller Log (rough)
Great callers included David from Kentucky, Samuel from Sweden, Frank from NYC (1st-timer, an America-hater), Paulie from Charlotte, NC, Bible Go-to-Guy from L.A., Maze from Dayton, OH, Dave from L.A., Ebony from Austin, TX (about illegals ogling black girls when she was a kid), Adiya from Santa Cruz, CA (about a slave ancestor and the immoral idea of reparations), and others. Thank you!
Here’s an Example of Someone Who’s Serious, but Good:
President Trump tweeted:
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly...... ....and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how.... ....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!
I love this man! This is the best president in history. He lives like how he talks. A lot of us can talk like this, thinking we’re all independent and bold, but he is independent and bold. AMERICAN!
