TWATs33 for 7/31/22


Just a note before beginning. ALL stories are supported by credible news reporting agencies and sourced. Updates are noted when warranted. Any medical information is fact-check via the CDC or other credible source.


Verbatim, in exactly the same words as were used originally; or, copied, quoted, or translated in exactly the same words as were used originally.

So I ask you Mr Barton, where are these “verbatim” bible verses? I sure as hell cant find them!!

Source: Does David Barton Know What "Verbatim" Means?

My first question Mr Perkins, how's it working out for Canada? They have had the Civil Marriage Act since July 20, 2005. Ten years longer than the US. The Netherlands’ legalized same-sex marriage in 2000. Are their experiments a failure as well? Or is your issue your bigotry is held in check by the 2015 Obergefell ruling?

While not the main gist of his little diatribe about Michelle Obama's new book soon to be released, this is so 2014. (See::,, and

And Jarrin, two points. Christ was a Jew and Luciferianism IS NOT the same as your perverted notion of Satanism.

The basic Luciferian principles highlight truth and freedom of will, worshiping the inner self and one's ultimate potential, and to encourage and celebrate the same within all.

Before using big words, I would learn what they mean first.

What scares me, idiots like Fuentes vote. Idiots like Fuentes get others like him to vote. I'd laugh at him but like many others he has a decent size audience.

And just so we're clear, everything he states is wrong. He would not find a single geologist that would agree with him.

Oh,,, and this shit about "We need to burn oil so that we can create a stronger atmosphere to keep carbon inside the atmosphere. This is all scientific." Sounds like MTG to me (or vice versa.)

Another wannabe,,, Jake Oaks is running for county clerk in Utah

County, and he’s promising to deny same-sex couples marriage licenses if he gets elected.

His argument is that the state of Utah passed a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in 2004. A federal court overturned that ban in 2013, saying that it violated the due process and equal protection guarantees of the U.S. Constitution, and the Supreme Court refused to hear the state’s appeal.

Two years later, the Supreme Court legalized marriage equality across the country in the historic Obergefell v. Hodges decision. States respected that decision because of the Supremacy Clause, which says that federal law takes precedence over state law.

Oaks – who describes himself as self-taught when it comes to constitutional law – says that doesn’t apply to marriage rights since marriage isn’t spelled out in the Constitution, and the Tenth Amendment means that states are in charge of regulating marriage.

IOWs, Federal law supersedes the State. “All couples must be treated equally. Clerks cannot pick and chose which legal marriages they solemnize. It’s all or nothing.”

Can we say Kim Davis part 2 as Oaks doesn't seem to understand or care.


Should we be surprised, Ted Haggard is facing similar accusations of drug use and inappropriate touching from another church. One he founded in 2010 after his 2006 fall from grace.

Allegations aside for the moment, to borrow a phrase from Hemant Mehta, he is the “national poster boy for Christian hypocrisy.” IOWS, dude needs to figure out his sexuality – is he straight, gay, or bi.

A Few More Stories for Week Ending 7/24/22


Radical America First candidate Shekinah Hollingsworth got 8.16% of the vote (549 votes) in a primary election – she fucking lost to her own party. But,,, Trump set the standard for this and now all Republicans are going to do it.
Well I now know why I have seen so many memes concerning the ozone layer. Whether Jr Barton is the “cause” I don't know that for a fact.

What he states is so asinine “warnings about acid rain and a hole in the ozone layer” and “climate change hoax and narrative,” I have no words.

To borrow a comment from WildwoodClaire1,”Timmy makes the false assumption that if a notoriously short attention span media is not talking about a problem, it must not exist. Nor has it occurred to him that the problems he mentioned were to some degree successfully addressed.”

This story is so important and not for the most obvious of reasons. Hemant sums it up well.

Later in the meeting, the board discussed the issue and it became clear some of the members just hadn’t considered the implications of that statement:


Another board member suggested a simpler statement that focused on “disruptive” clothing rather than listing out specific examples.

The end result of their discussion? The board agreed to have the administration rework the dress code. A modified version will be discussed at an upcoming retreat in two weeks just before the start of the new school year.

Which means a Satanist spoke out against religious discrimination that almost certainly existed due to pro-Christian bias. Then, within a matter of hours, the change she sought was put into action. 

Alisabeth Janai Lancaster, who is running for a spot on the Santa Rosa County School Board in Florida argued in a public meeting that doctors who provide care for transgender children “should be hanging from the nearest tree.” Yet another political wannabe withmalformed information.

See Alejandra Caraballo for an interesting thread

One question, make that two, I do have for Ms Lancaster, exactly where in the Bible is the hanging of doctors promoted? And what sect of Christianity promotes such?

For Week Ending 7/24/22

Plan B,,,

Kinda sort a quiet week, or at least it seemed to be. Then again, the NIFBY nit-wits are in the mix, all bets are off. 

Bear in mind Shelley is not the first NIFBY idiot to travel this route as Steven Anderson broached such in 2014. Anderson has given sermons covering such subjects as “The Jews and Their Lies,” “Hebrew Roots Movement Exposed,” “The Jews Are Antichrists,” “Jews Worship a Different God Than Christians,” “The Jews Are the Racists,” and “The Jews Killed Jesus.”

Anderson also co-produced with Paul Wittenberger, the anti-Semitic film Marching to Zion.

But what is so very, very funny - and I do mean in a haha way – Hemant Mehta, the Friendly Atheist, has gotten under another NIFBY hate preacher's skin, one Aaron Thompson.

As Hemant notes, ignoring the dribbled coming from Thompson,

New IFB churches are relatively tiny. They rent out space in strip malls and preach to tens of people at a time. However, years ago, they learned the power of live-streaming their sermons on YouTube, allowing casual viewers from all over the country to listen to their preaching. In any given week, the number of people watching their sermons is comparable to a fairly decent-sized church, which is why the pastors always make sure their video cameras and microphones are working. They preach multiple sermons a week and put everything online.

Here’s the problem, though. Unlike most of those other churches, the New IFB people are antisemitic and anti-LGBTQ. They believe that, in a perfect Christian world, the government would prosecute gay people, convict them on sodomy charges, and execute them. Not only do they openly call for the government-sanctioned murder of gay people, they are downright giddy when a mass shooting takes the life of LGBTQ people,,,

So when Aaron Thompson whines about being “persecuted,” he’s saying that when people like me share clips of him saying indefensible, violent things, it often leads to strikes or bans on his YouTube channels, which prevents his bigotry from reaching larger groups of people than he ever could on his own.

And here Hemant hits the nail,

For what it’s worth, I don’t share those Christian hate-preacher clips because I hate Christianity. If they didn’t say outlandish, cruel things all the time, I wouldn’t post about them. Most preachers aren’t in the business of creating content for atheist YouTubers and podcasters; these guys absolutely are. I don’t have to take them out of context because their in-context remarks are awful enough on their own.

I’m holding up a mirror to them, and guys like Thompson don’t like what they see.

If you track the NIFBY idiots as I have done for almost 10 years, it is good to keep what Hemant has to say close to mind. While this faction of hate preaching has been kept in check - sorta, what is gaining traction in the pipes may bust out at any time. (Greg Locke comes to mind; see Telltale Unfiltered for some interesting content.

I have never liked Josh Feuerstein especially since his 2015 camera scam. He has only gotten worse, CV vaccine denial and a role in January 5, 2021 events. His next scandal should not surprise anyone.

From the FFRF,

The IRS must immediately take action against a politicking Arizona church that is openly challenging the tax agency, the Freedom From Religion Foundation is demanding.

The Redeemer Apostolic Church in Mesa, Ariz., has recently been involved in blatant electioneering. The church hosted Pastor Joshua Feuerstein to perform a prayer revival event on Feb. 4. At this event, Feuerstein openly endorsed Jerone Davison’s candidacy for the U.S. Congress. Feuerstein even acknowledged that his endorsement of Davison was illegal and dared the IRS to take action against him,,,

Feuerstein clip -

If anything transpires I will be surprised. Since 2008 only one of more than 2,000 Christian clergy deliberately challenging the Johnson Amendment has been audited, and none has been punished.

And FYI, the 1954 Johnson Amendment, basically states that churches and other nonprofit organizations that are exempt from taxation "are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office."

Here's a name I haven't uttered since 2014-ish - Michael Peroutka!! For those that remember, in 2014, Answers in Genesis had an Allosaurus fragilis donated to the Creation Museum by Peroutka.

Vice sums up the current version of him well,,,

Michael Peroutka thinks American leaders must “take a biblical worldview and apply it to civil law and government.”

He’s a former board member of the neo-Confederate League of the South, has said he’s “still angry” that Maryland was blocked from seceding during the Civil War.

He thinks public education is a communist plot, says laws protecting abortion and gay marriage are illegal and unenforceable because they violate God’s law, and called the concept of the separation of church and state a “great lie.”

Peroutka won the GQP primary to become Maryland's next attorney general. Vice notes, 

His views are extreme even for the modern Republican Party, and once would be considered disqualifying for any major party nominee for statewide office. But his emergence as a serious candidate shows just how far the door has been thrown open to extremism in the Republican Party. The GOP base’s embrace of election falsehoods and anti-science COVID-19 conspiracy theories, and flirtation with white supremacist rhetoric has given once- fringe figures like Peroutka an opening to push into the political mainstream.

To be clear, Peroutka has not changed. But the party base that’s embracing him has.

Very troublesome times are ahead if these nutters gain ground.

For those interested, Hemant's podcast which discusses Thompson and Peroutka - Podcast Ep. 436: Who's the Real Hate-Preacher?

Time for a wee bit of comic relief as I am so reminded of the scene in Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier where Kirk ask god why he needs a starship. Sadly, Katt Kerr in her bit of fantasy is not jesting.

Is it sad that how I broach Kerr's religiosity is in a jesting manner? I seriously can not take this woman seriously!!

So that will do it for this installment as I am approaching the time limit. In an update to the Guidestones debacle. They still have no leads as to the bomber and there are talks underway to maybe rebuild. Obviously not everyone had the impression that a satanic cabal was responsible for its construction and what was written on the Stones.

Week Ending 7/17/22


Welcome back to TWATs!! I had to take a few weeks of me time due to the heat making a living hell of my life. While not excessively hot (it stayed below 90), it was uncomfortable. I just don't handle the heat like I use to.

With that said,,,

So for some odd reason AiG and the Ark Encounter has been front and center in my thoughts of late. This doesn't help!!

As Hemant notes, this was a paid advertisement!

What I don't get concerning the Christian taliban - why do they lie.

What I’m saying right now is not a prophecy. These are constitutional facts. When a sitting president population—popularity—drops under 20%, the Congress and military can step in and make decisions. That’s all I’m gonna tell you.”

No sir, they are NOT facts!! Again as Hemant notes, there are only two ways to legally remove Biden from power - Impeachment and invoking the 25th Amendment.

What's scary, lies such as what you are spouting Mr. Johnson, came easy to one David Barton. For example, this recent foray into pseudo-history.

Notice the “out” he gives himself, “I literally can show you a Bible verse in the Bible and show you language in the Constitution and you'll go, 'That is the same language.'”


I find it hysterical that it took “god” 40+ years to destroy the Georgia Guidestones.

The apologetic is mind-blowing, "I don't believe the videos they put out, there's no time stamp on them..." Less than ten seconds later, they show the video, with the time stamp visible. 

What's worse, Kandiss Taylor celebrated the act of vandalism:

And then there is Stew Peters take on the matter, lightening from god. Which one he doesn't say

Stew also seem to forget there is also a video of the car that was used to plant the "lightning." (Borrowed from a comment)

In the end Hemant sums up well the entire debacle.

Either way, if this is a victory, then who won? Who knows. If a Satanic monument was destroyed, it’s not like our lives are any better today. If it was just an expensive toy for a long-dead eugenicist, we still haven’t lost anything of value. But as with so many mindless things that eventually become traditions, we have lost something that was special to a lot of people. They put their own interpretations on the slabs of rock and a little piece of joy was taken from them. The city of Elberton has lost its most prized attraction. Ultimately, the monument was blown up by people whose motives remain unknown but who may have believed the lies they were fed by right-wing conspiracy theorists.

As local historian Raymond Wiley told Religion News Service, the Guidestones were meant to survive the apocalypse, but “they could not survive Southern culture.” A frivolous-yet-fun monument was likely shattered due to Christian superstition and a mindset that says anything some deem “un-Christian” must be destroyed at all costs.

Overall the Guidestones may or may not have been of any value. For me personally, they where a curiosity with a questionable origin. The possible association with eugenics is troubling but warrants a definitive rebuke; especially with regard to our history.

For thirty or so years the GG didn't garner much attention except for the occasional freak show. It wasn't until the last 10 years the nationalist type paid them any attention. Going back to my original question, why did it take god 40 years to destroy such a satanic icon?

The Rest of Week Ending 6/26/22


Change of plans due to content disagreement. Time has now become an issue and therefore have decided to go with what I already have.

Todd Starnes is not stupid, but this makes no sense. I know of only one such skirmish that may fit Starnes' criteria. One such incident is not “city after city, after city.” Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

While I am not surprised, he is definitely not so bright. I lose points on that issue.

And Kent, in street parlance, that's known as “gaydar.”

FYI:: This Televangelist's TERRIBLE Take On LGBTQ Issues

How can she swear an oath to uphold our Constitution if she doesn’t even know what it contains nor what it means? There is no mention of religion, specifically Christianity.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. (Signed in convention September 17, 1787. Ratified June 21, 1788)

So people who aren’t members of “the church” aren’t real Americans. You know, like Christians are. Oh,,, and y'all better be sure it is Boebert's flavor of Christian – the hateful, bigot kind.

TWATs28(NOT)Edit for 6/26/22


This post contains original video!!

Another comment: 

We need to stop giving months or days to subgroups. By doing so, remake offshore of the differences. Back in my 20's I was in an area with a lot of homosexuality men. I always supported them, in the belief that they should have the same rights as heterosexual. I believed that if they had a job with benefits to them and their families. Now, years later, I feel like those people are now trying to punish people that don't are white to eye with them. They have weapons their support. Now they do things like force people with different ideas, to accept their ideas, and they try to brainwash their children. They make fun of others at times, exactly as they used to complain about how people treated them. The problem is that they are showing a future in which people will again find homosexuality to be a disorder, and homosexuals will again have to go back in the closet, to avoid violent retribution. Instead of enjoying their new found freedoms, they are trying to fight a war in which will bring about hatred and again towards them. Keep acting the way that you have been, and you will end up bringing out crazy, violent people to action against you. I really do not want to see that, but....

So IOWs what you are saying is stay in your own lane!! I'm sorry, being told I should be jailed or executed because I love differently than so-called normies, is morally repugnant.

Creaky Blinder recently published this wonderful take down of Matt Powell. Highly recommend!!

These assholes lie so much that they don't even remember what they lied about. Pastor and former GOP congressional candidate, Mark Burns, has attempted to backtrack on comments he made recently about executing people who promote LGBTQ rights. On The Stew Peters Show a couple of weeks ago, he said parents who support their LGBTQ kids should be charged with child abuse.

While Burns didnt explicitly call for the execution of LGBT individuals, the original video , demonstrates “conclusively that Burn was not answering 'two separate questions' but rather delivered one statement in which he laid out his view that those who are supposedly destabilizing the United States and undermining the Constitution need to be executed for treason.”

He went full Goodwin when comparing his interpretation of events to Nazis indoctrination of children in the 1920s and 30s.

This week, talking to conservative podcasters Diamond and Silk, Burns expressed his frustration at how his hateful comments had been reported.

If the shoes fit dude, get comfy wearing them!!


I have had many critics express dismay over my interest in hate preaching, stating I should ignore it. I have had some go so far as stating they have “NEVER heard of such verbiage, it can't be true.” Or my personal fav, “well my church doesn't believe that” or “they're not True Christians.”

This next story is why I track the hate as I do!!

Officers from seven law enforcement agencies, responders from two federal agencies, multiple armored vehicles, a negotiating team and a police helicopter took part in the arrest Friday morning of a North Whidbey man who had been posting online comments about killing gay people and seemed to be especially fixated on the June 18 Anacortes Pride Parade, according to police.

The officers took 27-year-old Tyler R. Dinsmoor into custody on a $1 million warrant at his home on Lyon Road without incident, according to Oak Harbor Police Chief Kevin Dresker.

Dresker said the massive show of law enforcement was due to the nature of Dinsmoor’s online comments, which included violent vitriol aimed at the LGBTQ community and ominous posts about the gay pride parade. The chief said officers were also aware that Dinsmoor owns guns.

It gets worse,,,

In various posts, Dinsmoor wrote that God hates gay people, that “sodomites all deserve to die,” that he wants the death penalty for all gay people and that “all homosexuals are child-rapists in wait, and all (every single one) should be put to death immediately,” the report states. He called another online commenter “a (slur for homosexual) sympathizer worthy of death.” He wrote that “it’s not murder if it’s a justified killing.”

Hemant Mehta illustrates well Dinsmoor's online vitriol. Most importantly, Dinsmoor is NIFBY. “One thing that’s gone unmentioned in all of the news coverage surrounding his arrest, however, is how he may have been radicalized by his church.”

Dinsmoor is affiliated with hate preacher Aaron Thompson of Sure Foundation Baptist Church, which is in Vancouver, WA.

Who is preacher Aaron Thompson? He’s a guy who’s repeatedly called for the murder of LGBTQ people. He always insists the government ought to do it, as a way to distance himself from promoting vigilantism, but the fear from critics like me has always been that’s his followers would take action on their own in order to please their God. Thompson might not pull the trigger, but he’s indirectly encouraging others to do it.

Just look at the dates of these sermon clips, all from May. They line up with the time Dinsmoor was posting or making many of his own threats. (See Hemant's article, wonderful resource.)

As I stated many years ago, people like Dinsmoor are no longer fringe. All one needs to do is listen to the hate being preached on a 24/7 basis. Sadly our government is doing jack-shit. The SCOTUS, is of late, is catering to the Reich.

This is what happens since the GQP have made statements decrying drag queens being allowed near kids.

A Vermont resident could be facing jail time after threatening a local school if his daughter becomes near a transgender person or drag queen at her school. The man is Shane Gobeil and he threatened to “show up and kill somebody” when conversing with two students of the school in a New Hampshire store.


“The school’s changing,” Gobeil said. “Before you know it, there’s going to be a drag queen show and, you know what, I’m probably going to show up and kill somebody. A lot of bodies.”

“You understand?” he said. “If you guys ever do that to Canaan and my daughter’s in that school, be ready for God’s wrath.”


This isn’t the first time he’s been a menace to Canaan Schools. Around the same time when he threatened the schools and the LGBTQ community, he was cited for trespassing on school property and found harassing students, parents, and staff about mask mandates.

If Uvalde is any indication of the GQP taking responsibility for what their rhetoric produces, I'm afraid this is going to become tragic.

Before jumping into this next story, a few things about VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System).

One, “VAERS is not the way to determine causation. In fact, it’s not even a good way to determine correlation. At the very best, VAERS contains observational information that functions as a safety signal for the FDA and CDC, who have the resources and epidemiologists who can use other methods to determine if there is a correlation, and possible causation, between a vaccine and an adverse event.” As noted by Skeptical Raptor, “most of the so-called “VAERS data” used by the anti-vaccine activists are analyzed by amateurs, who have never taken an epidemiology or statistics course.”

Two,  VAERS data cannot be used to ascertain the difference between coincidence and true causality. VAERS tells us that there might be a problem, but it lacks specificity.

Three, VAERS is self reported. “VAERS reports may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable. Reports to VAERS can also be biased. As a result, there are limitations on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind.”

Any conclusion based upon VAERS data needs to be taken with a grain of salt. I only mention this as Del Bigtree is at the forefront as whom RoJo is speaking to. Bigtree is the biggest AVer in the US.

Rojo's little hissy-fit is a perfect example of how not to use VAERS. RoJo shows the VAERS numbers and immediately jumps to the conclusion that "it's pretty obvious" that over 28,000 people died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) which was caused by the COVID vaccines. No, RoJo, it doesn't show anything like that.

Hatewatch on Antelope Hill Publishing

My interest was piqued as a PA resident.  Thankfully,  Harleysville, Pennsylvania is about 6 hours from my location.

Hatewatch has identified three previously anonymous principals in the publishing company Antelope Hill Publishing, which specializes in translating historical works by Nazis, fascists and ultranationalists, and original works by contemporary white nationalists, neo-fascists and others on the far right.

Read the report here.
