Who Is This Woman?

I need to know why this woman is hiding her face from me – and who she is! What are they saying about me? Belle acknowledges her concern. They are not sure I am filming them. This woman does not want to be CAPTURED on film. Why? What did she do? Jean Stacey took a video in the square, and reassured THE COMMONERS it was SAFE to come down and mingle with the Crafty Trickster Rejects. How come the Reject Trickster Tribe, and their attorneys get to film Whoever they want, and wherever they want. They were always on the news. Now they are going to be on the National News – and hopefully on the silver screen. I have a mind…………’What Do They Call You In Bed’.

The Trickster under the barrel jumped up on a table in front of Kitty Piercy and the City Council, and said she was not moving until The Normies talked about the homeless problem again. IT accosted a local reporter, and set up a situation where the Eugene Police were forced to arrest her – half naked! Alley was ready with her camera.

There is a mole on Belle’s neck, that will endure her to me forever. Did you see the movie, BLOW-UP?

Wait a minute! Is that woman hiding herself so her very RICH FRIENDS, or, her powerful and rich husband, won’t see her slumming downtown?

“If he’s taping me, I want that camera. Get that camera, or no big fat check for you and your scumbags. Got it!”

“What is your name? What do they call you?”

Is Belle a beautiful Whoville wench, a pretty Gypsy Girl Pickpocket – downtown? I got the soundtrack.

I am going to make an Art Movie from my video, and other videos. It will be compared to Andy Warhol’s work. I will give a percentage of proceeds to the Hungry and Homeless.

Play the Who and John Monroe’s Nudie flick ‘A Beautiful Couple Getting Ready To be Taken To Jail’  at same time, with sound down on latter. Directed by Alley The Trickster  Reject Valkyrie. Art Director and Chalk Master, My Old Neighbor for ten years, Kevin, who must have shit a anarchist brick when Alley showed him a pic of me ‘Their Next Target’. Sixty Minutes wanted to talk to Kevin ‘The King of the Eugene Anarchists’

I would like to interview Alley, maybe cut a movie deal, but I was told by the woman who runs the Downtown Sunday event, that she is in Paris. What’s that woman’s name?

Alley has directed her star, Angie, to strip down naked so when the cops grab her, her big boobs will touch their hands and chest. This is SLEEPS. This is THE SCENE I walked in on at Ken Kesey Square. This is a SET-UP, another possible title – for a MUSICAL!

“I want a woman cop to arrest me! I don’t want NO MANS HANDS on me! I loves you Poopsie. Don’t let him MANHANDLE ME, and drive me mad!”

Angie is a Lesbian. THE BEAST! There is a BLACKMAIL GAME going on. I did consider I would be blackmailed if I did as the Dictator demanded. The title of their video is…..

“SLEEPS Protestors Arrested 36 hours after the fact”

What does that mean? Did they fall into a Time Portal, and were arrested twice for the same crime?

“Que the Dike! ACTION!”

“I fell in love with Belle the moment I lay eyes on her. The look she gave me came across the square like an arrow…….from another time. My heart stopped beating when it struck home. There was only one thing wrong, I was born too early. After she took my number and blog address, I ran home and wrote her a poem.

Ten days I waited for her call. Then, it came. She wanted to meet. I was anxious to study the mole on her neck. It inspired me! For I had seen this mole before. I was in the studio of my friend, Sandro. He was just finishing his portrait of his muse, Simonetta Vespucci.

‘What became of her mole?” I asked with alarm.

“I painted over it. I want my love to be perfect in every way!”

“Did she agree to this? I said with scorn.

“She has no say in this matter!”

“You might have taken the idea of Artistic Expression to far, my friend. She does have a choice.”

Who……am I?

I had gone to the First Friday Art Walk – to be insprired. And, there she was………..again!

La Belle Rose

by
Jon Gregory Presco

Dedicated to my Muse, Belle Burch

Poetry is the Truth
When I was a gifted youth
I do not recall if I studied the artist Sandro Botticelli.
When a man
I wrote my version of ‘The Birth of Venus’
and did a painting of my muse
coming out of the sea.
I must have neglected this great Renaissance Artist,
and his beloved Muse – until now!
But, Since I beheld her, my Belle
and compared her to Simonetta Cattaneo de Candia Vespucci,
do I now behold all the clues of the petals
and the thread
that have brought me through the labyrinth of time,
to adore her once again.
And she recognizes me!
Centuries ago I was buried at her feet
in order to continue my long vigilance,
for she was only asleep.
One day she will awaken, and the City of Flowers
will again bask in her unparelled beauty.
Bella! Mon Belle!

Someone put their words around Ken Kesey’s neck. They then took a photo and posted it on Ms. Iris group. This is a form of graffiti. It is the defacing of a work of art. To post a record of this vandalism, is more vandalism. Consider the murderous vandalism of ISIS – that is trolling for newbies! The intentions of the artist, and those who commissioned this public work of art, has been altered for the sake of a few.

Gwendolyn Maeve Iris – Troll

babbs5 babbs6 babbs9 babbs11babbs13babbs14

babbs65

I have discovered the true identity of Gwendolyn Maeve. Her full name is Gwendolyn Maeve Iris. However, this may be a fake name. Before I continue, here is what Zane Kesey said when he learned the square might be sold to a developer.

“WHAT TO DO ABOUT KESEY SQUARE?
There IS a problem with the vagrants, homeless, panhandlers etc. in the square dominating the statue. It may be too late to fix this as the city is in talks to sell it, that would be very sad. Loads of work went into the funding and creating of this statue by dear friends. What I dislike….. Is that lately when I go to spend some time with “dad” it is entrenched with panhandlers and pitbulls…so I walk away and don’t even bother. The statue was meant to be a symbol of Eugene, to visit, get a photo, pay respects and move on…not to be a place to take over. Now is the time for ideas on how to fix it, or it is 100% chance of a high rise here.”

Here is a conversation that Ms Iris had with a gentleman on FB.

“Look I am not here trolling, or slandering anyone. You guys invited me to this public forum. Is this not public?”

“This is not a debate page, this is an event page being used for organizing. You are more than welcome to go to the city council meeting and tell them how you feel.”

After gleefully wiping out hundreds of posts, Mauve wrote this;

I just realized I had to kill of one of my characters, and it already made me cry a little.”

Say what? Considering this premeditated act, Gwen get’s teary-eye – while editing her group, giving hundreds – the axe! Will she be bawling her eyes out when she actually does the literary deed, she grabbing for her bottle of meds and whoofing them them down as her shaking hand wipes him, or her out? Is there a weapon involved? OMG! It’s her! She is stalking her victim as she plots how to destroy the monument the well-to-do folks built to that fucking writer who uses a lot of profanity!

“She’s coming, Ken! Grab the children – and run!”

As a reward for saving him, Paul gives Annie his new manuscript which she saved from the wreckage. While feeding him, she is angered by the profanity in the new manuscript and spills soup on him but regains control and apologizes.

This was put on my FB page by a lover of Whoville, David Strahan, who spoke in front of the Mayor with Ambrose by his side. Note the use of the word MY. He is a public figure, and thus I get to write about him and his world of takers that take what is not theirs, and squat on property they do not own. He comes on to me like THEIR cop. What is he, a SLEEPS vigilante?  He warns our Mayor his friends will be shitting all over town – and it will be her fault! Yahhh! Get out the red OCCUPY diapers!

“Very disappointed that I unwittingly friended you and YOU have since trolled MY friends list, their profiles and photos. MY world doesn’t need your anger and hate.
Consider this your only warning to remove me and any of the material you copied thru my pages.”

  1. David Strahan saysJanuary 20, 2014 at 3:47 pmI have a surprising lengthy in-person conversation with Mayor Piercey this morning prior to the March. She is clearly aware of current housing shortages for the under housed in Eugene and is willing to listen to any and all options. What we spoke of, is expanding current micro housing options, possibly even finding a land donor to start a community housing program. I made it very clear that the public would be outraged if the collective poop of the 40+ residents at Whoville was spread about the city instead of current sanitary situation.Conversation ended with her wish that we could all come together and discuss various solutions.”

Amazing, this Whoville Sheriff tells the Mayor – to her face – he wants some good citizen to donate his/her land so 40 angry and hateful people can go take a dump on it! How like Ammon Bundy David is.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

hermannit2

OMG! WHO are these people – really! Is this dude who is disappointed – one of the six?

“I’m going to make this very simple for you. I don’t know if you know who I am, but I sure as hell know who you are, and when you fuck with my friends, you fuck with me. Stop writing about Belle or I am going to make your life very difficult. I mean it. If I see one more word about her on your blog, your FB, or anywhere else, I will make sure that you experience all the fear and discomfort that she is experiencing right now. And no, this isn’t a physical threat, so don’t try to play victim. Frankly, I encourage you to contact EPD, as they already know all about you. I will not do anything illegal, but mark my word you will regret it if you write one more word about her. I will make sure that the entire community knows exactly how much of a sick fuck you are. Your picture, your name, and “samples” of your writing will be posted on every bulletin board in town. There will not be a single person in the Eugene/Springfield area who won’t know that you’re a sick stalker who won’t leave a stalker who won’t leave a young girl alone. Cut it out. Now. This is your first, last, and only warning.”

“Please, go ahead and blog my threat.
You have no fucking idea what you’re getting yourself into
You also have no idea how many people are already on to you, and how many people have my back. We also have six other mutual friends who are going to learn about your behavior ASAP And just so you know as well: if you write anything about me that could be construed as defamatory, you will be hearing from my lawyers ASAP.”

Someone put their words around Ken Kesey’s neck. They then took a photo and posted it on Ms. Iris group. This is a form of graffiti. It is the defacing of a work of art. To post a record of this vandalism, is more vandalism. Consider the murderous vandalism of ISIS – that is trolling for newbies!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vandalism_of_art

I post a photo of the vandal’s cat wearing the same AD. If this person sees her cat being used on my blog, my forum, for my purposes, she will go ballistic. She will want to hurt me, and will ask one or more males to contact me, and threaten me. Her Gang of Trolls will be informed. They will give her special attention. Now consider how Zane feels when people drape their bullshit agendas on the image of his diseased father. How disrespectful.

“What I dislike….. Is that lately when I go to spend some time with “dad” it is entrenched with panhandlers and pitbulls…so I walk away and don’t even bother.

When real citizens go downtown, they do not want to see the ads of trolls that are very demanding. These handmade ad-ons claim most people – on their way to work – don’t care for them, and, are content to see the homeless out in the cold – dying! This is the core message that interrupts the normal course of a working citizen’s day. Who likes SPAM and POP-UPS?

YOU ARE A HEARTLESS SOB! I HOPE YOUR DOG RUNS AWAY AND GETS KILLED BY A CAR! FEED ME! HOUSE ME! LOVE ME – OR THERE WILL BE NO END TO THE TROUBLE I WILL CAUSE YOU.

If you go to ‘Save Kesey Square Rally’ you will read over and over the glee Gwendolyn is enjoying by erasing the imput of my fellow citizens that she ALONE gets to read, gets to find negative, or, contrary to HER agenda – which she never really states! We are not allowed to judge for ourselves what is not good for us. We can not be trusted to arrive at the truth of the matter. There is a lot of guessing going on by the NEWBIES, and that is allowed, because Ms. Iris is trolling for newbies. Those who recognize her, and her act, try to warn their fellow citizens, and are cut down. I would say 99% of normal Eugene citizens believe Kesey Square is a Public Forum, and because they believe in FREE SPEECH, naturally they assume the leader of the Save the Square group – is for FREE SPEECH!

WRONG!

Ms. Iris has only one agenda…..get all you can from the Homies in order to sustain HER PEOPLE. If you have to lie – lie! If you have to bully – bully! If you have to deceive – deceive. If you have to slander – slander!

If Ms Iris was honest with all the people of Eugene, she would have said this in the heading of her group;

“Hi! Some of you know me. Most of you don’t, because I keep altering my name so I can get close to you and beg stuff from you. I am a famous trespasser who has been arrested on several occasion. I break the law for the good of a few. I am the champion of the lazy and the lawless. My name is Robin Hood. I OCCUPY Sherwood Forest and downtown Eugene. As you can see, I am well fed with free food, but, that is not enough. I need a toilet, and an abode with running water and ample heat. If I had a home, I would get a cute little puppy. Can you spare some change so I can feed my puppy – to be? I deserve a puppy! Would you deny me a puppy – you heatless son-of-a-bitch!”

babbs14 babbs34

Here’s their Downtown Uglification Program. These are the SLEEPS trespasser who took over Ken Kesey Square – twice – that I know of. If real Eugene citizens lose the square, you can blame the big bosomed lesbians in this video. Angie – who loves to shock people – jumped up on a table at the city council meeting, and declared to the mayor she wasn’t leaving until THEIR demands are met. When these ugly women show up at the rally, or at the coming council meeting, the square will be sold. How can YOU stop them?

STAY AWAY!

I am wondering if Gwendolyn Maeve Iris is getting monetary offers from folks who love the Kesey family, and they would love to attend Maeve’s rally, but, they got to work that day. It’s easy to transfer money from your bank account with your cellphone. Is Gwendolyn receiving public assistance? Is she on HUD? Is she keeping good records? Is she a non-profit organization? Is she sending messages to prospective donors?

I’m also wondering how that fat pig made it over that fence! She has engorged herself on censored input from real citizens. Stop feeding her!

After being severely abused, censored, and threatened by these vandals and parasites, this is how I feel…..If you do not have a place to live, if you are not seeking employment, if you have not contacted sanctioned agencies to end your homelessness, and, if you don’t vote….then, it is none of your fucking business what real citizens do to sustain a quality life! These vandals do not get to trash ‘The Voice of the People’ in order to serve their covert agendas – that only serves them! Shout them down!

Another claim sets the origin in Usenet in the early 1990s as in the phrase “trolling for newbies”, as used in alt.folklore.urban (AFU).[26][27] Commonly, what is meant is a relatively gentle inside joke by veteran users, presenting questions or topics that had been so overdone that only a new user would respond to them earnestly. For example, a veteran of the group might make a post on the common misconception that glass flows over time. Long-time readers would both recognize the poster’s name and know that the topic had been discussed a lot, but new subscribers to the group would not realize, and would thus respond. These types of trolls served as a practice to identify group insiders.

http://www.eugeneweekly.com/article/homeless-shiver-city-hall-stands-empty

http://www.opb.org/news/article/citations-issued-at-occupy-eugene-demonstration/

Two Occupy Eugene protesters got cold and in trouble for calling attention to homeless people who are cold and in trouble. The activists received citations for criminal trespass in the second degree around 1:30 am Monday after scaling the chain-link fence that blocks off Eugene’s City Hall. The Occupiers were protesting the city’s lack of action in providing homeless people with a safe place to sleep during the winter.

Gwendolyn Iris scaled the chain-link fence around 2 pm Saturday, Nov. 17, during a memorial to 20 Eugeneans who have died on the streets this year, and she locked herself inside the fenced-off area. At that time, she told EW she planned to stay until arrested or until Monday morning, when she would leave for work. Jason Miller later joined her behind the fence.

Iris says the city spent $70,000 on the fence that was erected around City Hall after the city vacated the building in August but no money is being spent to prevent the homeless from dying during the winter. After the closure of the Occupy camp at Washington-Jefferson Park in December 2011, City Council approved the use of $100,000 to open a facility similar to the Egan Warming Center that would help house homeless people with substance abuse issues through that winter, but the facility was only open Dec. 22-24.

“The fact that they spent this much on a fence to keep people out of a public building that could be keeping people warm but can’t come up with the $100,000 to save lives in the middle of the winter really goes against everything that Eugene claims to be when it says it’s a human rights city,” Iris says.

Two demonstrators who climbed a chain link fence around the former City Hall property in downtown Eugene were issued criminal citations for trespassing.

Occupy Eugene member Gwendolyn Maeve Iris and Jason Lee Miller were cited early Monday after a weekend demonstration. Occupy Eugene said it was a protest “against the city’s lack of action for the unhoused.”

The Priory of Pussy Galore

Was Thomas Pynchon inspired by Ian Flemming? How about Donald Trump, who has invoked a vast conspiracy of bankers? Jennifer Murphy acts like she wants to be in a James Bond movie, with her Ninja rap song and all. She could be Pussy Galore’s daughter that she born after she was drug-raped.

Billy&Roy Christian-Sex Experts

billygram deutshe4 friedrich3 Deutsche-Christen-flag

Franklin Graham is a Neo-Nazi Sympathizer.  I have been titled insane by my daughter and her Fascist ex-lover, Bill Cornwell. My nightmare, is now the world’s nightmare. Who saw it coming?

I was rendered utterly WRONG in this valley, by righteous folks in Lane County where my newspaper ‘Royal Rosamond Press’ is registered. Like most newspapers, I have an archive to draw upon. This is why I did not allow some folks to CENSOR me, after they threatened to do me bodily harm.

It is 10:00 P.M. Tuesday night. I have arrived at the steamy sixteen year old Southern Baptist Belle, who has been poked, patted, and probed by a Horny Man of God, more than once. So far, I am the only REPORTER who has found the Billy&Roy connection. Roy Moore was being GROOMED to take over aspects of Billy Graham’s Crusade – in a political manner. Did Franklin Graham know Roy was banned from the Mall?

“The flamboyance was vintage Moore, who on Election Day rides his horse to the polls and who hung a plaque with the Ten Commandments over the four-poster bed he shares with his wife in their home about 50 miles northeast of Birmingham.”

Marilyn was sixteen years old when she left me for a twenty-four year old German Jet Setter. He mother approved of this Playboy, and gave her permission to fornicate – at will! She said she would have me arrested if I tried to see Marilyn again, because, I refused to go down and get saved at four Billy Graham’s Shaming of Teen Genitals Criusades at the L.A. Coliseum.  I was still a virgin at seventeen, and could have spent time in jail, if Maria had her way. But, then Rosemary would have killed her, or, had her killed by her mobster friends at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where she took part is real jaded sex acts with some stars thrown in.

Marilyn’s half Filipino sister was jilted by the son of a famous Evangelical, married two black men, and became allied with Black Radicals in Paris, including the Black Panthers, who kidnapped Timothy Leary. She and her husband, Carlos Moore, wrote about ‘Fela’ then sold the rights to a production company that made a musical. I asked Belle to help me produce another musical. That’s seventeen year old Marilyn on a ship being taken to France by the son of a famous movie producer – with her mother’s permission – of course! This is all very TRIBAL STUFF that Sol Yurick understood long before others.

https://rosamondpress.com/2013/08/13/the-sol-warriors/

Looks like Roy got plenty of blowjobs while naked under the Ten Commandments – his White Tribal Totem. My vision, my musical, is all coming together. This will make Aaron’s shin-dig look, puny. I will got up the mountain for some FRESH TABLETS, un-slimed by Holy Teen Experts – GONE HOG WILD!

Moses married a Black Woman, a……..Black Madonna? Can you dig it?

John Hagee’s call FOR THE TRUTH, is topical. I was forced to go if I wanted more Teen Sex. I looked at that friggen stage for a total of eight hours. I told Marilyn Billy was another Hitler, and should be assassinated. I think she told her mommy on me. This is before Oswald. Marilyn and Marie’s minister gave anti-Catholic sermons. I was forced to attend if I slept on the floor of my first girlfriend’s bedroom.

‘The Lost Sheep’ Crusade came with Teen Night. It was about 90 degrees as Billy crept closer to our Teen Genitalia. The girls got off easy as he zeroed in on OUR ERECTIONS. This word was not used, but, Billy danced all around it as his bodyguards searched the crowd. I think the term was……

“And you young men out there. I know when you get close to Betty and behold her firm young budding breasts, you feel aroused, a stiff hardening in your underwear your mother just washed because she loves you so, almost as much as she loves Jesus. But, you are too young to do to Betty, what you want to do to your mother. Wait, did I get that wrong. You are too young to do to Betty, what your father does to your mother. And it’s O.K. they know each other in a carnal way, because, they gave their bodies – and souls – to Jesus! Now, look at your Betty sitting next to you, and tell her how sorry you are you want to poke her with your hard thing – before she comes down here and get’s saved! You don’t want her to lose her mortal soul, do you!

BUSTED!

The whole thing was sick and surreal. Many foreigners – want out! Americans are heading to the EXIT, but, it’s TOO LATE! Von Trumpmaster ‘The Rejected Trickster’ will be making grand entry’s into the coliseum near you! He will be proceeded by his big missiles and The Dancing Bettys  – doing the goosestep!

Turns out I was the only carrying a spiritual agenda that I somehow caught from my Catholic kindred, who fled to America and never gave up speaking German. When Marilyn was fifteen, she stormed into our home to confront Rosemary’s psychological hold she had on me.  My mother ‘The Sex Fiend’ beat the shit out of her. I would lose my virginity against my will – when I twenty! Sex&Danger always go hand in hand with me. I should never have gone into Ken Kesey Square after I beheld  – The Trickster Rejects.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/10/26/billy-graham-roy-moore-evangelicals-have-come-ways-but-still-arent-there/798329001/

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/two-more-women-describe-unwanted-overtures-by-roy-moore-at-alabama-mall/ar-BBF18L5?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp

Sixty years after his epic crusade in New York City established Billy Graham as America’s leading Christian evangelical preacher, a U.S. Senate election in Alabama could make Roy Moore its leading evangelical politician.

The contrast between Graham then — “America’s pastor’’ — and Moore now —“the Ten Commandments judge’’ — illustrates the changes in the political fortunes of their common constituency, and helps explain its powerful nostalgia.

On Oct. 27, 1957, before a crowd of 40,000 at the Polo Grounds, Graham concluded a crusade that began in May and filled Madison Square Garden night after night until Labor Day.

This year, on Sept. 26, Moore, even though he was vastly outspent and even though the president and vice president campaigned for his opponent, won a Republican primary runoff for the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. Now, supported by Donald Trump, he’s favored to beat Democrat Doug Jones on Dec. 12.

That would complete Moore’s comeback from not one but two ousters from the Alabama Supreme Court, the first for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument he’d installed in a courthouse. And it would solidify his status as a national evangelical folk hero.

Moore is a Southern Baptist. So is Graham, now 98 and long retired. The similarities stop just about there.

Where Graham was relaxed, inclusive and generally non-partisan, Moore is abrasive, divisive and happily partisan. He reflects the temper of the times, and one of its paradoxes: Despite their crucial role in electing Trump, evangelicals feel under siege.

Robert Jones, CEO of the non-partisan Public Religion Research Institute, says these conservative white Protestants worry about a future that appears to be against them.

Gay marriage, opposed by six in 10 evangelicals, has been ruled legal. Roe v. Wade, another evangelical bete noir, remains the law on abortion. Church attendance is flat or declining, even among white evangelical

Graham reached out in the 1950s secure in Protestant Christianity’s national primacy. But Moore, facing a culture increasingly inhospitable to his creed, is in a defensive crouch.

“Graham got attention because he spoke for and to the nation,’’ says Jones, author of The End of White Christian America. “Moore gets attention because he’s so out of step with the nation.‘’

The evangelical moment

When Billy Graham agreed to bring one of his crusades in New York City in 1957, he broke definitively with the “Separatist’’ strain of evangelicalism, which sought to isolate itself from a sinful world rather than convert it.

In the Separatist view, New York was Sodom and Gomorrah. Worse, it was a bastion of “papist’’ Roman Catholicism and mainline Protestant denominations (Episcopalians, Presbyterians, etc.) that often viewed evangelicals as backwoods snake charmers.

At 38, Graham was already a phenomenon: handsome, sincere, confident, eloquent. He’d just begun what’s been a 60-year run on Gallup’s list of men most admired by Americans. He was close to President Eisenhower, and would be to many of Ike’s successors.

“God’s Ambassador’’ reached beyond the old evangelical audience. He integrated his Southern crusades in 1952, three years before the Montgomery Bus Boycott, where he met and befriended Martin Luther King.

Graham admitted to approaching New York (to quote the Apostle Paul) in “fear and trembling’’ and also in hope: That he could start a religious awakening that would “sweep this country like a prairie fire.’’

He lit a spark. The first night crowd at the Garden was 18,000. The next day The New York Times devoted two pages to the event, and printed the text of Graham’s sermon. ABC televised the Saturday night services nationally.

The crusade, originally scheduled for six weeks, was extended. On July 20, Graham drew a record crowd of 100,000 at Yankee Stadium; thousands were turned away. The crusade was extended into August. A Labor Day rally filled Times Square and the streets leading into it with a crowd estimated at 125,000.

Graham thundered: “Let us tell all the world we are united and ready to march under the banner of Almighty God, taking as our slogan that which is stamped on our coins: ‘In God We Trust!’’’ (Which had been made the nation’s motto the previous year.)

Graham’s sermon at the Polo Grounds finale struck a more somber note, one that’s relevant today.

War with the Soviet Union seemed “more possible now than at any time in the past 10 years,’’ he said; a congressman told him “there is a strong element within the Kremlin that believes that Russia should attack the United States within the next two years.’’

Graham called on President Eisenhower, who he said had “the confidence of the American people,’’ to reassure the nation and “tell the American people exactly where we stand. … The American people are not children. They want the facts straight from the shoulder.’’

At a time when presidential utterances sometimes increase rather than allay war fears, Graham’s appeal seems quaint. In fact, Jones says, “I don’t think Billy Graham could be successful today. He wouldn’t be political enough.’’

The political pulpit

Last month, Roy Moore strode onto stage at a pre-primary runoff election rally in Fairhope, Ala., wearing a cowboy hat and vest, and nursing a resentment: opposition ads that questioned his support for the Second Amendment.

With that, he pulled a pistol from his pocket, held it up for all to see, and said, “I support the Second Amendment!’’

The flamboyance was vintage Moore, who on Election Day rides his horse to the polls and who hung a plaque with the Ten Commandments over the four-poster bed he shares with his wife in their home about 50 miles northeast of Birmingham.

Over the years, he has delighted supporters and outraged critics: Islam is a “false religion.’’ Homosexuality, akin to bestiality, is immoral and should be illegal.

My Long Battle With Billy Graham & Son

Franklin Graham said;

“One hundred years ago, political leaders in every community were the pastors. They were the voices that were heard. They were the voices that had the influence. Politicians know that and the government knows that – and they are trying to shut the mouths of especially evangelicals.”

The beautiful blonde in the photo above is my childhood sweetheart, Marilyn Godfrey. We met at Univeristy High School in West Los Angelas in 1962. I was sixteen, and she, fifteen. Two years later, Marilyn’s mother forced me to attend four Billy Graham crusades at the LA Colesum, if I wanted to see my beautiful lover again. When I failed to go down on the field, fall to my kness, and be Saved, Marie Godfrey forbid me to see the love of my life. If I tried, she would have me arrested. I was seventeen.

As a five thousand person choir sang ‘Jesus I Come’ I got up and walked to the rose garden through the Roman arches. I was all alone, one voice against ten thousand. How Marilyn found me, is a miracle. She said this, with tears in her eyes;

“If you are not saved, my mother will never let me see you again!”

Looks and sounds to me the evangelical voice is not oppressed in America, and, the Grahams are full of shit. How dare they piss and moan because their ilk failed to take over my democracy, and rule it in the name of Jesus – in proxy! The voice of the American People – has been heard! God hates liars – especially those who lie in His Name!

I was one voice crying in the wildeness. I was not old enough to vote. I was in love.

“Repent!”

Jon ‘The Nazarite Judge’

 

“We didn’t tell anybody how to vote for a candidate. We told them how to choose candidates – and made that plural – who backed Biblical principles. There are a lot of Republicans, Tea Party people, Democrats that we focused these ads on.

“We wanted people to remember that, as they were going into the voting booth, that there were political decisions, no question, but there also were moral issues,” Graham added. “At every level, we need to think about who we are voting for and encourage Christians, especially, to vote for candidates who support biblical values.”

The move by the Wisconsin group, Graham said, reflected a broader push by the far left.

“They want to shut the mouths of evangelicals. They want to shut the mouths of Christians.

“One hundred years ago, political leaders in every community were the pastors. They were the voices that were heard. They were the voices that had the influence. Politicians know that and the government knows that – and they are trying to shut the mouths of especially evangelicals.

I Am A Republican – Again!

At 1:29 today, I registered as a Republican – again! On the way to the gov-site, I came upon a article about IMPEACHING our Republican President. I am all for this, but, this will not be my priority. Watch this space!

From now on I will go by the name on my birth certificate and voter registration.

JOHN GREGORY PRESCO

The first thing I am going to do when sworn in, is challenge Steve Bannon to a wrestling match, that is, if he is still alive. I heard he’s got ingrown warthog size hairs growing up his – you know where – that might pierce his heart causing him to bleed out of you know what.

I am considering drafting a State Civil Rights Bill that will include all races, and define all people’s major concerns;

I would like to see all States appointing members of the State Department, as well as the Intelligence Community.

A group of Democrats on Wednesday announced that they would be filing multiple articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, marking the most significant push to remove the president from office. The move was led by Representative Steve Cohen of Tennessee, who first declared his intention to initiate the impeachment process following Trump’s controversial “both sides” remarks in response to deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Cohen is joined in his efforts by five colleagues, including fellow Judiciary Committee Democrat Luis Gutiérrez of Illinois, who announced his decision to join the push two weeks ago. Also at the press conference were Representatives Adriano Espaillat of New York and Al Green of Texas. The latter is one of the president’s loudest critics, and he has previously filed his own articles of impeachment.

“We believe President Trump has violated the Constitution.”

Five articles of impeachment will be introduced, alleging obstruction of justice, violations of both the foreign and domestic emoluments clause, undermining the federal judiciary and undermining the freedom of the press.

Cohen called upon the Judiciary Committee to begin hearings, but accepts that is unlikely to happen in a Republican-controlled House. The Judiciary Committee, Cohen claimed, is operating like a “branch of the administration.”

I have shared these personal stories with you to make a point. When family or friends are there to care for senior family members—as is the case about 80% of the time—the final years can truly be golden. I remember my mother saying at age 88 that these were the happiest years she could remember. My two sisters and I were always there for her. She once laughed and said that all she had to do was snap her fingers and we would come “a-runnin.” But, when a senior citizen does not have a support system of family and friends, society—which means community and not just government programs—has the opportunity to provide more than a roof, a bed, Medicaid, and Medicare. We can help give many of our senior citizens the dignity, the honor, and the opportunity to live out their final phase of life in the comfort and familiar surroundings of their own homes.

The Red Stain Of Satan

I warned you! God put you to a test when he allowed his Satan-Ministers to TEMPT YOU by bidding their Evangelical Voters to BE REPUBLICANS – ONLY! You have been stained – MARKED BY THE BEAST! No man or woman can remove HIS NAME. Moore is THE STAIN OF SHAME! He and his ilk have ejaculated on our Constitution – and the Holy Shroud of Turin. God Himself will not remove this stain for it is a Historic Record of Religious Arrogance and Unholy Greed!

I think the bigger factor is the fact that Moore’s name will remain on the ballot no matter what. Ballots have been printed, and absentee ballots were sent out long ago. That means whoever the write-in candidate would be is already bleeding GOP votes to Moore.”

Millions of you are the Tares amongst the Golden Sheaves. God allowed you to grow with self-righteousness – grow above the Good Bounty – so HIS HAND can better take hold of you, give you a good yank to UPROOT YOU – and cast you into the eternal flames!

ROY means KING and RED! Add it up! This is THE BRAND. Red is a nickname for the Devil. Many of you are owned by THE RED KING OF THE WORLD! Satan Trump shows his allegiance to the REDS OF RUSSIA! USSR = RUSS!

The name Russ is a French baby name. In French the meaning of the name Russ is: Red. Russell was originally given as a nickname to people with red hair. Also a form of Rufus: Red-haired.

Roy is an English, Scottish Gaelic, and French name of Norman origin. This family name originated from the Normans, the descendants of Norse Vikings from Denmark, Norway and Iceland who later migrated to Normandy.[1][2] The derivation is from the word roy, meaning “king”. The Normans brought this surname to England, which in medieval times was used as a nickname either for one who behaved in a regal fashion, or who had earned the title in some contest of skill.[3][4] It also appears in Scottish Gaelic, anglicized from the word ruadh, meaning “red”.

Bannon (fair-haired) has decided to STAY ROOTED behind ROY. He clings to the ass-hairs of the ROYAL RED ONE like a parasitical flea – and he dare title himself a Patriot! He is a RED COAT!

Repent!…………For Judgment Day, is at hand! The Satan Stain spreads like wild fire. You have been contaminated! If you Stained Republicans do not REFUSE this evil tax cut, that takes from the poor, and gives to the very rich, there will be no REDEMPTION for you!

So be it!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable_of_the_Tares

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

— Matthew 13:24-30,

 

“I think it’s very important for your viewers to know that our people have been voting since October the 18th,” Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told Fox News on Tuesday night.

Merrill also added something important, saying that even if Moore’s nomination were withdrawn, “if he gets the most votes as a plurality winner on December 12th, then our election will be null and void.”

Yep, there’s the Alabama secretary of state suggesting that Moore could still win the most votes in the special election even if he is not officially a candidate. In other words, there could be a huge number of Alabamians who still vote for Moore, either because they don’t know he’s not a candidate or — and this is the key here — as a protest vote.

Republicans began pushing a broad tax cut for businesses and many individuals through the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday, a measure complicated by a late addition — repeal of the Obama health care law’s requirement that Americans get insurance coverage.

Erasing the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate provided Republicans with more money that they used to make some tax breaks for people modestly more generous. But it raised questions about whether it might prompt some moderate GOP senators to back away from the measure.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has projected that dismantling the requirement would mean 4 million additional uninsured people by 2019 and 13 million more uninsured by 2027. Worries about leaving more people without coverage were among the reasons GOP attempts to outright repeal much of President Barack Obama’s law crashed in the Senate this summer.

Republicans controlling the Senate 52-48 can afford to lose only two votes and still push the measure through the chamber, since all Democrats seem likely to oppose the package.

In another money-saving move, Hatch changed his bill late Tuesday to abruptly end the personal tax reductions after 2025. Under Senate rules, if legislation bill drives up federal budget deficits after 10 years it cannot be shielded from bill-killing filibusters by Democrats. It takes 60 votes to end a filibuster, numbers Republicans don’t have.

The corporate tax cuts would be permanent. They include dropping the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent.

“Keeping the individual mandate tax in place means retaining the status quo, which isn’t working all too well,” said Senate Finance panel chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. “Zeroing it out means we have a chance to provide greater tax relief to middle-class families, through both reduced penalties and lower overall rates.”

The Finance committee was hoping to approve the measure by week’s end. Republicans were planning the House would approve a similar tax bill on Thursday, though that version left the health law’s coverage requirement intact.

White House legislative director Marc Short said President Donald Trump spoke Wednesday to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., about the tax legislation. Trump plans to talk to House Republicans about their measure at the Capitol on Thursday to rally support before the House vote.

Short said Republicans feel they have momentum but added, “We’re always concerned. The reality is we don’t have a large margin in the Senate.”

Many Evangelicals Are Devil’s In Disguise

I am going to re-register as a Republican today, so I can drive the false prophets, and devils in sheep’s clothing, out of the party founded by my abolitionist kindred. I am going to give some Bible lessons aimed at the Evil Trumpire of Satan Pussy Grabber!

GET OUT YOU DIRTY DEVILS!

Your Disgust for Roy Moore’s Evangelicals May Say More about You than the Actual Data

Image: By Nick Fox via shutterstock.com

The accusations against Roy Moore are credible and Moore should step down. If he continues to maintain his innocence, he should still step down so he can fight to clear his name, for the good of his state, for the success of his party, and to end the embarrassment he is causing evangelicals.

Now, what Moore is credibly accused of is horrific. Christians need to avoid even the appearance of ambivalence towards sexual assault and child molestation. The world is watching and the gospel demands us take a stand against such sin and to stand with the victims.

That should be, and has been for me and many others, our primary focus.

Yet, in addition, as an evangelical and a researcher, that damage to evangelical reputation also needs some fair-minded discussion.

The Backdrop

Just this past Sunday, Kayla Moore, wife of U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, shared a letter on her Facebook page signed by 53 Alabama pastors wishing to pledge their support for his candidacy. In the letter, the signees told of their confidence in Moore’s character—namely, his love of God’s word, care for others, and defender of just causes.

Last night, Sojourners shared an article entitled “More Than 50 Pastors Sign Letter of Support for Roy Moore” and alongside it, they simply tweeted “Forgive us, Lord.”

But why? Why does Sojourners want us to repent?

The Narrative

Since the release of this letter, countless news outlets have jumped at the chance to cast criticism on these pastors. These critiques worsened after a recent Alabama state poll asked evangelicals in Alabama how the recent allegations affect their willingness to vote for Moore in the upcoming election; 37% of evangelicals said they were more likely to support him.

In light of these results, recent article titles have included “Alabama Evangelicals More Likely to Support Roy Moore After Sexual Assault Allegations” in Newsweek and “Roy Moore’s Supporters Stand by Their Candidate, Despite Sexual Assault Allegations” in The New Yorker. All seem to be insinuating the same thing: Christians now prefer Moore as a candidate because of the recent accusations.

So, in other words, the implication is that these pastors (some of whom have now stated that they did not agree to this or any statement after these allegations surfaced) and those responding to a poll are doing so knowing he molested a child, something he denies.

Many are convinced—and now try to convince others—that Christians are somehow not bothered by a politician and U.S. Senate candidate engaging in child molestation.

But is this really the best reading of the situation and the data?

History Reveals Something Similar

Turns out, we’ve seen similar patterns.

In examining the Democratic reaction to President Clinton’s affair (and long accusations of harassment and more), it is important to recognize that it was not that Democrats liked the notion of sexual indiscretions of their President. Rather, they doubted the accusations (at first), trusted in his denials over his accusers, and resolved to continue their support of him as a leader and party member.

At a more base level, many endured in their support in part due to their belief that a “vast right-wing conspiracy” had come against Bill Clinton. Democrats’ support for Clinton and approval of his leadership was still much higher than both Republican and Independent support even after the news of his involvement with Monica Lewinsky broke loose in the late 1990s.

Were they all supportive of a 49-year-old president’s sexual involvement with his 22-year-old intern? I never assumed so.

However, when people feel someone is unjustly attacked, they double down. This is in part why the biggest scandals in American political history have never been able to substantively kill party loyalty.

The Story

Turning back to the issue of how this evangelical reaction is being framed, there is a serious problem with the thesis that their support has grown because of the allegations. This skewing of the polling should concern anyone, regardless of our side of the aisle. If it’s valid to claim that evangelicals are more likely to support a candidate because he might be a child molester, then it’s valid to proclaim that Democrats are more likely to support a candidate because he is a womanizer. And I don’t think either claim is fair.

If it seems incredulous to you that evangelicals would grow more enthusiastic because of sexual abuse allegations, there is a reason.

Because it genuinely does not make sense.

Occam’s Razor vs. A Hermeneutic of Disgust

At the crux of the matter is that, despite what evangelicals actually believe or what the data indicates, many have already chosen their narrative.

Essentially, there are two competing narratives at play: Occam’s Razor and a Hermeneutic of Disgust.

Occam’s Razor states that the simplest explanation is the best explanation.

The best explanation here is that some evangelical Christians are willing to support Moore because of their convictions that the allegations aren’t true. They feel he is being unjustly targeted by the “vast left-wing conspiracy” and they are doubling down on their support.

At the same time, the most satisfying answer to non-evangelicals, former evangelicals, and some self-loathing evangelicals is that they don’t care what he did and they are alright with supporting a child molester; this is the Hermeneutic of Disgust.

Hermeneutics is how we interpret things. And if you are disgusted by evangelicals already, this fits the narrative quite well.

It needs to be said—a host of people are letting their disgust towards evangelicals frame their interpretation of the fallout from allegations against Moore and they are simply treating the information unfairly.

Rather than seeing the most logical (Occam’s Razor), they are drawn to the most disgusting (a hermeneutic of disgust).

Even Nate Silver opined on the interpretation, explaining, “For most voters, “more likely to support after allegations” means “I’m a Moore supporter & don’t believe the allegations” and not “I approve of the conduct the allegations allege.”

It has to be pretty unfair and pretty widespread when Nate Silver notices and comments on the perception of evangelicals.

Real Issues Need to Be Addressed

Frankly, there are plenty of features, habits, and characters within evangelicalism that should give us cause for concern without this narrative. For example, lots of people are discovering a year-old piece of research, saying that evangelicals went from the least to most tolerant on politicians moral indiscretions, and using it in the Roy Moore debacle. It’s not about Moore, but it’s still bad. I wrote about it last year under the title, “Evangelicals: This is What it Looks Like to Sell Your Soul for a Bowl of Trump,” complaining that evangelicals changed their view of the importance of character in order to vote for their candidate—which is pretty much the definition of selling out.

But the fact that a handful of obscure pastors endorsed Moore, and some people in a poll said they were more likely to support him now, simply does not say what some would like it to say about evangelicals. They are not eager to vote for child molesters. They don’t want their 16-year-olds to date 32-year-olds. And all of their pastors are not endorsing controversial figures accused of child molesting.

Fairness matters, and it’s lacking here.

There is enough for which evangelicals need to repent and work to repair without fabricating new levels of self-loathing. But the response of many people to this data says more about them—and the state of our discourse—than it does about the evangelicals that disgust them.
