    No,to Harry this was important as he thinks it sheds a bad light on conservatives as if this might be far removed from a liberal.

    Like I said, they're all lying fucking hypocrites.

    A new study has found that US states with a higher degree of religiosity are more likely to be searching for sex on the web.
    The study was compiled by researchers at Brock University in Ontario, Canada, and based on two years of data from Google Trends across US states.
    Researchers found that states identified as religiously conservative and politically conservative were indulging in more online pornography than other more liberal states.
    Let's face it, jesus wheezers are renowned for being sexually repressed, look how many paedos they have running churches.

    I assume the idiots that vote in the Republicans are blissfully unaware for whom they are really working.

    The influential network of policy and political groups backed by billionaires Charles and David Koch plan to grow tenfold in coming years, Charles Koch said Saturday as he welcomed 550 of his likeminded pals assembled in California for a donor summit.All told, the eye on policy and politics will be as much as $400 million, their biggest bucket for a midterm cycle in the groups’ histories. That is on top of cash the influential brothers and their allies funnel every year to projects working in schools, prisons and non-profit groups.
    “The capabilities that we have now can take us to a whole new level. So my challenge to all of this is to increase the scale and effectiveness of this network by an order of magnitude, by another tenfold on top of all the growth and progress we’ve already made,” the the sixth-richest man in the world, with an estimated worth of $52 billion, said. “If we can do that, I’m convinced we can change the trajectory of this country.”
    Already one of the dominant players in conservative and libertarian circles, the Koch-backed network stands ready to expand well beyond its well-oiled political machinery that has shown tremendous success electing like-minded candidates. The network last week announced plans to pilot a program in prisons in four states to help inmates write exit plans, is expanding its Dallas-based anti-violence programs to Baton Rouge and is looking to double its spending on education for elementary and high school students.
    “We’re just getting started,” said Brian Hooks, one of the top officials with the Koch organizations and the chief of the Charles Koch Foundation.
    The network’s broad work — a “grab bag of activities” in the self-deprecating words of Hooks — may seem scattershot from the outside. For instance, how do you combine tea party-styled groups, a $100 million annual allocation for students and scholars at 350 universities and an ambitious overhaul of the criminal justice system? The overriding mission, officials say, is to open doors for Americans. In the coming years, that will include anti-poverty programs, anti-gang efforts and more investments in non-profit groups.
    “I’m more excited about what we’re doing and about the opportunities than I’ve ever been,” Charles Koch said. “We’ve made more progress in the last five years than I had in the previous 50.”
    But the biggest public-facing impact is through the political work, channeled through groups like the grassroots-focused Americans for Prosperity. The Koch groups spent $20 million to help pass the Republican tax cuts and are preparing to spend that much again to improve its popularity ahead of the 2018 elections and to match public opinion to the strengthening economic indicators.
    In that, there were no illusions that the political cycle would be gentle on the Kochs and their favored candidates. Time and again at a briefing with reporters, officials reminded reporters that history predicts the party in the White House loses seats in Congress during their first midterm elections. It was an effort at lowering expectations.
    “We know the challenges out there at the state and federal level,” said Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity. “We’re all in trying to protect those in what will be a challenging year.” To that end, the politics and policy budget is a 60% boost over what the group spent in 2016, when the prospect of President Donald Trump leading the Republican ticket left many donors sour on the race and most sat it out.
    Democrats would need to net 24 seats in the House to claim the majority. The enthusiasm among Democrats — and new activists boosting them — has caused plenty of heartburn for Republicans. GOP candidates will clearly be on defense this year, but the Koch-backed groups say they will not provide unconditional support. “We’re not the Republican National Committee,” said James Davis, an executive vice president with the network. “We’re not toeing a party line. We’re going to support principled leaders.”
    The Kochs convene these summits twice a year, usually at resorts that are heavily secured and exclusive to donors who pony up at least $100,000. Reporters are invited to attend some sessions if they agree not to identify donors who wish their patronage to remain private. A slate of elected officials are expected to attend, including the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, John Cornyn, and the leader of the conservative Freedom Caucus, Mark Meadows.

    Right wing morons? We have millions of them in the USA. I submit my proof. So many morons. I despair.

    Millions of Americans Believe God Made Trump President

    If Donald Trump gets a little bored on his flight home from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, he can always page through a book handed to him by a delegate not long after he arrived: “God and Donald Trump.”


    The volume, written by Stephen Strang, a leading Pentecostal figure and the longtime publisher of Charisma magazine, is an easy read—part spiritual hagiography, part Fox News bulletin and part prophecy. It ultimately says far less about Trump than about the charismatic Pentecostals who were some of his earliest religious supporters and who now view his election as the fulfillment of God’s will.

    The genre of spiritual hagiography last flourished during the presidency of George W. Bush, who was the subject of four books about religion and one documentary (“George W. Bush: Faith in the White House”) during his first term alone. In Bush, authors had something they could work with. He had a much-documented mid-life experience of being born again, was a regular church attender in Texas, and spoke about God and Jesus in ways that sounded natural.





    Nevertheless, writers like David Aikman often resorted to intuiting Bush’s faith and presenting as evidence of his deep spiritual commitment his fondness for healthy food and exercise (does the Bible not direct believers to treat the body as a temple for God?) and the behavior of White House staff (“though manners are not specifically connected to George W.’s personal religious faith, it was as though the discipline he brought to his own life of prayer and Bible study filtered down into the work habits of everyone who worked with him”).


    But if Aikman and others had to reach a bit to fill out a book about Bush and faith, their subject was practically St. Francis of Assisi compared with the current occupant of the Oval Office.


    Strang, who sat down with Trump briefly during the campaign but did not interview him for the book, wisely spends little time trying to divine the president’s personal religious views and commitments—though he does devote a chapter to arguing that Trump’s children are “a reflection of his core values,” while his three marriages and multiple admitted affairs are a reflection of nothing of note. Instead, Strang attempts to explain evangelical fervor for Trump and provides a window into the world of charismatics, a subset of evangelical Christians who believe God still speaks to people through prophesies and is still actively involved in arranging the world of human affairs.

    The hypocrisy of the religious right in supporting Trump is simply staggering.

    It just proves they're completely full 'o shite when it comes to all the 'family values'-type dribble.

    Florida Middle School Teacher Caught Hosting White Supremacist Podcast


    The stupidity that leads one to embrace the ideas of white supremacy also tends to lead to other stupid things, like getting caught bragging in a podcast about covertly teaching kids racism at a public school.

    Such is the fate of 25–year–old Dayanna Volitich, a soon–to–be-former social studies teacher at Crystal River Middle School in Florida. Volitich was called out by HuffPost this weekend for allegedly hosting a white nationalist podcast called Unapologetic, in which she describes having covertly injected her beliefs into the classroom and then lying about it to school administrators when parents complained.

    HuffPost outed Volitich, who the news site said hosted Unapologetic and maintained a social media presence under the pseudonym “Tiana Dalichov,” after a blog called Angry White Men wrote about the Feb. 26 podcast. In that podcast, “Dalichov” interviewed the host of a far–right, anti[at][at]–Semitic media outlet called Red Ice.


    “Dalichov” and Lana Lokteff attacked feminism and then discussed the educational system in the U.S., calling for white supremacists to “infiltrate public schools to push their racist agenda and root out ‘Marxists,’” according to Angry White Men. Lotkeff urged fellow “alt[at]–right” minions to be “more covert and just start taking over those places.”

    The Angry White Men blog noted:

    Much to Lokteff’s delight, Dalichov [Volitich] revealed that she is, in fact, a teacher with white nationalist beliefs — as well as a fan of Red Ice. “It’s something that, as a teacher, it’s a tough place to be,” Dalichov complained, adding that teachers like her are “incredibly lucky” to find like-minded co-workers.
    “So do you have much freedom as a teacher or is someone always over your back, making sure that you’re staying on point, and teaching certain curriculum?” Lokteff asked. Disturbingly, Dalichov revealed that she plays by the rules when her supervisors are watching, but lets the children know that it’s all an act — a “dog-and-pony show,” as she called it — and asks them to “play along.”

    The two also criticized the idea that “a kid from Nigeria and a kid who came from Sweden are supposed to learn exactly the same” and have the “same IQ.” “Dalichov” acknowledged believing that some races are naturally more intelligent than others. (Listen to the entire podcast
    here and here .)


    HuffPost tracked down Volitich’s employer, the Citrus County School District, on Friday. After that, “Dalichov” tweeted that she “might disappear for a while” and then deleted her fake
    Twitter account and the podcast.

    As of Saturday afternoon, Volitich’s profile was still posted to Crystal River Middle School’s website.


    In a feature story published Friday, The Guardian warned that the debunked “science” that certain races are inherently more intelligent than others, known as “race science” or “scientific racism,” is making a comeback among members of the so–called “alt–right,” a contemporary moniker for white supremacists.

    “Race science isn’t going away any time soon. Its claims can only be countered by the slow, deliberate work of science and education. And they need to be – not only because of their potentially horrible human consequences, but because they are factually wrong,” The Guardian’s Gavin Evans wrote.
