“What the hell is going on here?”

Thus spoke the President of the United States – who does not have a clue! Biden is a member of the Catholic church that goes out of its way to stay out of the crosshairs of the Christpos Orcs of Killer Kirill. Write him and your elected officials. Demand an investigation of the Christian-right that is out to destroy Secular Society and remove Secular Alternatives to their Murderous Fake Rapture Cult that loathes the Gay Penis. Dionysus DeSantis is a leader of the Z-ARDO-Z EXTERMINATORS! Has he condemned Putin who is a follower of Saint Paul who castrated himself.?All penis’s were evil in his mind, and thus he hated the Mary Magdalene ‘The Wife of Jesus’

Write your Governor and ask them to offer Sanctuary to Disney. As a candidate for the Governor of Oregon, I demand every candidate CONDEMN the legislation of DeSantis – who is a candidate for the Antichrist – in my book! Look at his suave, smug look of beefy he-man self-righteousness! This Orc – hates magic! Where have we seen that look…….?

In Disney’s treatment, Quasimodo is chained to pillars like Samson ‘The Nazarite’.

Charlie Crist continues taunting Ron DeSantis over Russia, Ukraine (floridapolitics.com)

‘It’s unacceptable and unpatriotic.’

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist Thursday again denounced Gov. Ron DeSantis for not condemning Russia’s war on Ukraine or making statements of support for Ukraine.

Crist, a former Governor who currently serves in the U.S. House, charged that DeSantis is putting his partisan political ambitions ahead of supporting democracy. Crist argued DeSantis’ failure to sufficiently weigh-in is “unacceptable and unpatriotic.”

He also criticized DeSantis for not making moves to divest Florida investments from Russian assets, something first urged by Crist’s Democratic Primary Election opponent, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried.

“It’s been a week since Russia’s bloody and unjust invasion of Ukraine began. A week of opportunities for Gov. DeSantis to make clear where he stands. It shouldn’t be hard,” Crist said.

There was no immediate response from DeSantis’ re-election campaign.

Biden on Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law: ‘What the hell is going on here?’

At a Democratic fundraiser in Seattle on Thursday, President Biden weighed in on the fallout over the bill signed by Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis last month banning teachers from holding classroom instruction about sexual orientation or gender identity — the measure dubbed by critics the “Don’t Say Gay” law.

“This is not your father’s Republican Party,” Biden said at the fundraiser, which was hosted by the Democratic National Committee. “This is a different deal, not a joke. And it’s not just Trump, it’s the MAGA crowd. It’s all about things that have nothing to do with traditional conservative doctrine.”

Earlier Thursday, Florida’s Republican-controlled Legislature passed additional legislation that would strip the Walt Disney Co. of its self-governance privileges in the state after the company criticized the “Don’t Say Gay” law. It was passed by the state Senate on Wednesday and signed by DeSantis Friday afternoon.

“Disney and other woke corporations won’t get away with peddling their unchecked pressure campaigns any longer,” DeSantis wrote in a letter to his supporters Wednesday. “If we want to keep the Democrat machine and their corporate lapdogs accountable, we have to stand together now.”

“I respect conservatives,” Biden continued. “There’s nothing conservative about deciding you’re going to throw Disney out of its present posture because, Mickey Mouse? In fact, you think we should not be able to say, you know, ‘gay’? I mean, what’s going on here? What the hell is going on here?”

Biden made similar comments at a DNC fundraiser in Portland, Ore., earlier in the day.

“The far right has taken over that party,” Biden said. “It’s not even conservative in a traditional sense of conservative. It’s mean. It’s ugly. It’s the way — look what’s happening down in Florida. They’re going after Mickey Mouse. I mean, seriously, think about it. As my friend used to say, ‘Who woulda thunk it?’”

The White House had sharply condemned the bill — known as H.B. 1557 and titled “Parental Rights in Education” — before it was passed by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by DeSantis.

“It’s a form of bullying,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on March 10. “It is horrific.”

At the hearing, Greene initially denied she had called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “a traitor to our country,” as CNN’s KFile reported.

“No, I haven’t said that,” the congresswoman said.

Greene eventually admitted to having said that about Pelosi as the attorney questioning the congresswoman put up the exhibit with her remarks.

“Oh, no. Wait. Hold on now –” Green quickly interjected. “Oh no, wait, hold on now. I believe that by not securing the border that violates her oath of office.”

Before she ran for Congress in 2020, Greene created a White House petition in January 2019 to impeach the House speaker for “crimes of treason,” citing Pelosi’s support of so-called sanctuary policies that “are serving illegals and not United States citizens,” and because Pelosi did not support then-President Donald Trump’s border wall.

War Criminal ‘Killer Kirill’

Top Russian cleric accused of ‘moral crimes’ by fellow Orthodox leaders for sanctioning invasion of Ukraine

WASHINGTON — Patriarch Kirill, leader of the Russian Orthodox Church, has been a loyal ally of President Vladimir Putin for years. But his vociferous support of the invasion of Ukraine has drawn strong rebukes from religious leaders who say he has forsaken Christian teachings by supporting the Kremlin’s destructive campaign.

In his most recent Sunday sermon, delivered at the Church of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos in Moscow, Kirill told worshippers to respect official power — a message seemingly intended to bolster a military campaign that has gone badly for Russia. Once called “the politicking patriarch,” Kirill was enthroned in 2009 and is closely associated within Russia with the current political regime.

“May the Lord help us all in this difficult time for our Fatherland to unite, including around the authorities,” Kirill said in the sermon. He hoped that the Russian people would maintain “the ability to repel external and internal enemies.”

Kirill has been a vociferous and consistent supporter of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, despite the fact that the vast majority of Ukrainians are Eastern Orthodox. On Sunday, nearly 300 leaders of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church signed a letter accusing Kirill of “moral crimes” for his endorsement of the unprovoked attack on Ukraine, which has killed thousands of civilians.

“Our position is fully consistent with the Gospel and the church tradition,” the Ukrainian clergymen wrote. “Defending the homeland from the enemy is one of the main Christian virtues.”

Many Christian leaders in the West have denounced the invasion, including Pope Francis and members of Kirill’s own church. Most Russian clergy, however, share Kirill’s views. Metropolitan Mitrofan of Murmansk said the invasion of Ukraine was a battle against “the Antichrist.”

Mitrofan also said the Orthodox Church in Ukraine is “not a real church,” in reference to the schism between the Ukrainian and Russian churches three years ago, angering both Putin and Kirill.

Long suspected of having once been an agent of the KGB — the Soviet era security service that frequently singled out religious dissidents — Kirill is a symbol of the resurgence of the Orthodox Church under Putin, who has used religion to bolster his nationalistic, anti-Western vision. In 2013, Kirill decried same-sex marriage as “a very dangerous sign of the apocalypse.” Four years later, he criticized Western Europe for the “grave mistake” of straying from Christianity.

Although Russian society has become increasingly religious since the fall of the Soviet Union, which officially embraced atheism, Kirill has not wholly escaped scrutiny. In 2012, a photograph of him wearing a $40,000 watch was airbrushed to remove the timepiece, leading to widespread derision and mockery. Two years ago, he was seen wearing a watch costing $16,000, this time without apparent concern for public backlash.

When Putin decided to launch an invasion of Ukraine in late February — in what he described as an effort to “de-Nazify” the country’s government, which is led by a Jewish president — Kirill told members of the armed forces that they were on “the correct path.” He also alluded to threats mounting “on the borders of our Fatherland,” an obvious reference to Ukraine and its Western allies.

A sovereign nation since 1991, Ukraine has sought to chart a course distinct from its Soviet legacy. Kyiv’s desire for autonomy has always been viewed as an affront by Putin, who first invaded Ukraine in 2014. He invaded again eight years later, expecting an easy victory, only to face protests at home and condemnation abroad.

Kirill remains a key ally for an increasingly embattled Kremlin. “The Russian Orthodox Church’s moral blessing of this war has been years in the making,” Russia expert Samuel Ramani of Oxford University said earlier this month. While few have been surprised by Kirill’s loyalty to Putin, his seeming lack of concern for the plight of ordinary Ukrainians has renewed criticism of his tenure.

Though he has made generic calls for peace, the 75-year-old bishop has also made no secret of his true sympathies. “We have entered into a struggle that has not a physical, but a metaphysical significance,” Kirill said in early March.

In a widely condemned sermon earlier this month, Kirill struck out against the West while envisioning the same fictitious unity of Slavic peoples that Putin has invoked and Ukrainians have rejected.

“Today the word ‘independence’ is often applied to almost all countries of the world,” Kirill said on the same day that much of the world was encountering the images of slaughtered civilians in Bucha. “But this is wrong, because most of the countries of the world are now under the colossal influence of one force, which today, unfortunately, opposes the force of our people.”

The April 3 sermon was delivered at the main cathedral of the Russian Armed Forces. Kirill did not name the malevolent force he had in mind, but Putin has blamed the United States for engineering Ukraine’s successful resistance to Russia.

“We are a peace-loving country and a very peace-loving, long-suffering people who suffered from wars like few other European nations,” Kirill went on to say.

“We have no desire for war or for doing something that could harm others. But we have been so educated by our entire history that we love our Fatherland and will be ready to defend it in the way that only Russians can defend their country.”

The April 3 sermon led to a rebuke from a leader of the Greek Orthodox Church in the United States. “From the words and actions of Patriarch Kirill, we can conclude he has made the same bargain with Putin and his cronies. This is, indeed, a sad moment for our church, and the whole world is watching,” Archbishop Elpidophoros said in a speech the following day.

“The riot act has to be read,” Williams said in an interview with the BBC.

“When a Church is actively supporting a war of aggression, failing to condemn nakedly obvious breaches in any kind of ethical conduct in wartime, then other churches have the right to raise the question and challenge it — to say, unless you can say something effective about this, something recognizably Christian, we have to look again at your membership.”

Present at the sermon Kirill delivered on Sunday were several representatives of Norilsk Nickel, the mining giant that helped construct the church where service took place. The corporation is helmed by Vladimir Potanin, an oligarch close to Putin.
