“Witches Have Infiltrated Our Schools!” – Greg Locke…

“Pastor Greg Locke attends an interview with right wing figure and ex-governor candidate Kandiss Taylor, and it gets strange. The conversation veers toward witchcraft. Greg Locke talks about witches infiltrating his church. This isn’t a new belief. He’s felt this way for decades. I also discuss Kat Williams’s take on atheists and evolution.

Greg Locke’s most baffling argument is about how witches are actually infiltrating our schools. He explains to Kandiss Taylor how more and more teachers are straight up witches these days. Her response? To agree of course! And to ask Greg what we should do about this terrible epidemic.

The crazy doesn’t stop there however, Greg goes on to explain how he is also a witch…. FOR JESUS! He has all of the supernatural, extremely useful, and totally real powers that a witch has, but his are better because God gave them to him. He can out magic any witch.

Sadly we also hear from Greg’s son, Hudson Taylor. He also believes he has actual supernatural powers. He seems to be following in dear old dad’s footsteps. He even mentions how he isn’t “preaching to make friends but to spread the word of God,” multiple times. That’s a favorite line of Greg’s. Even though I strongly suspect neither of them have read the whole bible.

They’re both constantly making claims that the bible just does not support. Like, for example, all of the witch-ey woo powers stuff. They got that idea from a section of the bible that was written decades after the original text. Maybe they just don’t realize that, I hear you saying. Well that would be nearly impossible since almost all bibles include an explanation above those verses (if they’re included at all) saying that exact thing. We all know those verses were written years later because the conclusion of the book of Mark didn’t feel exciting enough.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene Blurts Out Classified Information During House Hearing…

Date: March 17, 2023

“During a hearing about border security this week, Marjorie Taylor Greene blurted out information that the witness – a US Border Patrol chief – said he couldn’t comment on due to the fact that it was classified. Greene insisted that she didn’t care if the information was classified because she says the public has a right to know. This is exceptionally concerning, and possibly illegal, as Farron Cousins explains.

During a House Homeland Security hearing this week. And as we all know, Marjorie Taylor Green is unfortunately a part of that committee. But they brought in, um, US Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz to ask him some questions, you know, about what’s been happening down there at the southern border. And during her questioning of Chief Ortiz, Marjorie Taylor Green, apparently blurted out, classified US intelligence for the entire world to hear. Here is the exchange that took place between Marjorie Taylor Green and Chief Ortiz. Chief Ortiz. This is Marjorie Taylor Green. Are you aware that there was an explosive device found by Border Patrol agents on January 17th in an area called No Man’s Land and theirs surveillance of who put it there? And guess what? It wasn’t Americans, it was cartels. Are you aware of that Chief Ortiz responses? Uh, I will tell you that some of this information that I receive, I, I receive in a confidential, so I’m going to be a little hesitant of briefing what I know and what I don’t know with respect to some of those, uh, an event like that.

So that’s Chief Ortiz’s trying to diplomatically say, Hey, um, that’s classified info. We, we can’t be talking about it here. Let’s just, you know, next question. Green didn’t back down. She doubled down. She said, I understand Chief Ortiz, but I’m not going to be confidential because I think people deserve to know. Our border patrol agent should not be in those type of conditions where they’re at risk of being blown to pieces by the cartels, who by the way are criminals and they should be treated as such. Before I continue, I, is there anyone who doesn’t treat a drug cartel like criminals? Like are there actually people in this country rooting for the drug cartels other than drug dealers themselves? Like that’s a stupid thing to say. As a matter of fact, I’ve co-sponsored legislation to declare war on the cartels because they’re definitely declaring war on us, the American people and our border patrol agents.

And I’ve had enough of it and I know Americans have had enough of it. What we’ve had enough of as Americans is classified information not being properly secured here in the United States of America. I, I think we’re all a little tired of that. I mean obviously we’ve seen it with Trump, we saw it with Biden’s documents, we saw it with Pence’s documents, we’ve seen it with other individuals documents. Now we got a member of the House Homeland Security Committee blurting out classified intelligence for the world to hear it. And you may be asking yourself like, well, okay, but why was that classified? That seems kind of innocuous. Doesn’t matter why it was classified, it was classified. Perhaps it’s part of an ongoing investigation with the Mexican government. Perhaps perhaps there is a sting operation to catch the individuals involved in it and blurting out the information. Could have put the lives of American agents in danger. We don’t know. We don’t need to

Know every single thing. I’m not, look, I get there are things the government can and cannot say. I may not agree with some of the things that they don’t tell us, but I do understand it. You know, kind of to paraphrase, Tommy, uh uh, uh, Tommy Lee Jones from Men in Black People are scared, panicky, and stupid. So if we knew everything the government knows, yeah, we, we’d be stupid about it. Which is why certain things are classified cuz it’s better off if we don’t know, not defending everything they classify. Sometimes they classify stupid stuff. But here’s what gets me. Didn’t Donald Trump sign a bill into law increasing the penalty for individuals who either take classified information or reveal classified information? He did. He did. So I don’t know if that law applies to blurting out classified information in the middle of a house hearing, but if it does, Marjorie Taylor Green may wanna lawyer up. Cuz I’m pretty sure they’re not exempted from that law that Trump himself signed into law. So maybe be more careful with your words in the future, Marjorie, because there literally are some things you’re legally not allowed to say. And of course you want to go to.

Pathological Liar George Santos Questions Biden’s Mental Competency…

Date: March 17, 2023

01) LINK


“Serial liar, and possible credit card fraudster, George Santos has introduced legislation that would require all sorts of mental and physical competency tests for the President of the United States. Apparently the man who has lied about every aspect of his life suddenly cares about who is qualified to hold public office. The bill currently has ZERO co-sponsors. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

*This transcript was auto-generated. Please excuse any typos.

Pathological liar and Republican representative George Santos, has introduced legislation that would require the President of the United States to undergo not just a mental competency test, but also physical competency tests according to his executive mental comp, uh, competency Protection Act of 2023, which for the record has zero co-sponsors right now, George Santo’s Bill would quote, test general intellect, reading and comprehension, attention and concentration processing, speed learning and memory reasoning, executive functions, visios spatial skills, motor speed and dexterity, mood and personality and memory retention. The president would have to take the test on January 1st of each year, or else the White House would lose funding for that year for official travel. So under this bill whi, which again, it, it tests everything I just read, like you your dexterity because yeah, president, you know, you gotta, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t even understand it. I’m not even gonna pretend to understand it.

And on, on New Year’s Day, you gonna make ’em take this test. Like, you know what, if you have a crazy New Year’s Eve, you gotta wake up the next morning, take this cognitive test, that’s gonna be a little difficult, bud. Maybe, maybe push it a couple days after New Year’s Eve might work better. Uh, not to mention the fact that, if they fail it, they, they only lose funding for official travel from the White House. Like they’re not kicked out of office. Like, oh, we’ve determined you’re unfit to be president, so you have to stay home for a full year. You’re basically just putting them in a timeout if they’re not mentally competent enough to be president of the United States. So it’s no wonder that this piece of legislation has zero co-sponsors because it’s idiotic. Now, Santos claims this is definitely not a dig at Biden.

You know, it’s regardless of party affiliation, the president would have to do this. Um, so suddenly Santos is concerned about a politician’s qualifications for office. Isn’t that ironic coming from a man whose serial lying could be seen by mental health professionals as a pathology. Like there may be something wrong with you, George Santos, which is probably why your piece of legislation exempted everybody other than the President of the United States. I mean, should we not have this test for cabinet members? Should we not have it for the Speaker of the house, for the, uh, you know, majority leader in the Senate, just the president. Interesting, interesting. Also, let’s not forget that plenty of, uh, presidents throughout history, both on the left and right, would not be able to pass some of these tests

Just simply based on the merit. Trump would certainly not pass the, uh, mood and temperament portion. FDR obviously wouldn’t be able to pass some of the physical, uh, parts of it due to, you know, being in a wheelchair. Reagan definitely wouldn’t pass the cognitive part, you know, the processing speed, things like that. Same thing with George W. Bush. So you got a lot of problems with this legislation. It goes a little bit too far. Now, I am all for competency tests for politicians, but I don’t want it to be for just over the age of 70 or 75 if, if we’re gonna have tests. It needs to be for everybody. You should, as an elected official, have to go through some kind of, you know, qualifying event other than just being, Hey, well, I was here. I filed a run who I won. Oops. Didn’t think it would happen.

Yeah, I, I, I I think we need to hold our elected officials to a higher standard than we currently do. Absolutely. But I also believe that Santo’s legislation is, is way, way off the mark here. It’s stupid to put it bluntly. And of course it’s singles out just the president when we have plenty of other people who may not have the title of president, but they can inflict just as much damage as a president can. So they should probably go through the same kind of testing. But I think if anybody’s gonna propose testing, it needs to be an individual that hasn’t lied about every single aspect of their history.

“Briahna Joy Gray and Robby Soave react to Drew Barrymore’s conversation with a transgender activist in a viral video. Originally aired March 14, 2023”

There’s nothing wrong with interviewing people on the floor.

If people like that don’t like it…it’s almost certainly a good thing…and a lot more of it should be done.
