Publisher embroiled in legal battle with Arkansas over law banning Israel boycotts – NBC News

Whenever I see these stories it makes my blood boil. They claim to be pro-israel but in fact they are not. They are being pro-israel in hopes that Israel is destroyed.

Belief in the Rapture, also known as millenarianism or eschatology, has multiple variations, but the core view is that there will an apocalyptic war, Jesus will return, and true Christians will be “raptured” or ascend to heaven, with the rest of the earth’s inhabitants punished. Rapture believers are split about the order of events, but they are united in the belief that only Christians will be saved.

From:

Yes, it seems that so-called Christians, have come up with this voodoo religious kind of scenario where, of course, the Jews must all die so that Christians can find The Rapture and meet up with Jesus. This is racist and anti-Semitic point of Evangelical religion.

So whenever you hear about these laws that seem to be pro-israel, remember they are hoping for the destruction of Israel instead.

Los Angeles Passes Law for New Businesses to Disclose Any Ties to NRA – Newsweek

I truly believe that living in Los Angeles is a privilege. When I moved here almost 20 years ago I was told that the city would eat me up. Instead the city has embraced me. Living in the city where people have the same mindset as you, for the most part, it’s magical.

So once again I’m so proud of our great City for standing up to the NRA. The NRA has become not only a purveyor of death and violence in our country but also a conduit of dirty money from foreign countries including Russia.

Can someone please explain to me why the NRA would be doing events in Russia. Russia does not allow gun ownership it never made sense.

Business in Los Angeles is also a privilege and if these companies wish to continue doing business here they need to start fussing up to how and why they are tied to the NRA.

There’s a big tell in Trump’s latest defense of Donald Jr. – Washington Post

I have a couple of things to say here. First and foremost, ignorance of the law does not excuse you from the law. The defense that is being melted for Donald Trump Jr is that he didn’t know it was against the law to get opposition research from a foreign country. I am not a politician but if a foreign adversary came to me while I was running a campaign the first thought would be to go to the FBI and not to say I love it. They keep saying that collusion is not a crime. Yes there is no statute that uses the word collusion. But collusion describes a series of events that lead to getting into a crime.

But what’s more telling is the fact that this President is seemingly throwing his son under the bus. the reason that Rudy Giuliani doesn’t want Trump to have an interview with the special counsel is because he knows he’s going to lie. This tweet clearly states that he knew nothing about it but we know that this man is a stickler for details and would not have had a meeting during his campaign that he did not know about of this importance.Granted he has the pardon power and granted his supporters will forgive anything from this president but unfortunately for this President his hardcore supporters are about 30 to 35% of the population, not enough to win an election.

As an aside, it’s ironic how all of these Republicans who I could not stomach listening to, including Ruth Marcus, have now come out against this president. It is heartening that they understand the country security is more important than anyone presidency. I just wish members of Congress that have an R next to their name would grow a spine and start defending our country and The Oaf they swore. unfortunately, I believe the prospect of the elimination of the capital gains tax is more important to them then our country’s security. Capitals gains tax is levied on mostly very rich people and that’s their donor base.

North Carolina Governor Tries to Step Back From Bias Law – NYTimes

Way too little and way too late. If the governor of North Carolina thinks that he’s half measures are going to help his fate become whole again he is so wrong. The pressure will be kept on him and the legislature who voted in this terrible law that discriminates.

North Carolina’s Anti-LGBT Law Is Based On a Total Lie

North Carolina lawmakers would be better off as members of the Spanish Inquisition. I hope they realize that corporations are going to be boycotting the state that relies heavily on convention business. These people are complete idiots and should not be leaders. And not to blame only the Republican party for this 12 Democrats voted for him also. How do you say they needed to cater to their constituency.
