Possessed: Lady Gaga had woman vomit green slime on her

Are we in Hell yet?

Most of FOTM‘s readers are older than the demographic groups who go to pop concerts or listen to what passes nowadays as pop music. So we don’t really know what goes on in pop concerts.

The reality should come as a shock to us — things are even worse in America’s pop culture than I’d ever imagined.

On March 13, 2014, during a South by Southwest (SXSW) show, the pop singer Lady Gaga performed a song titled “Swine“. Here’s some of the lyrics:

I know, I know, I know you want me
You’re just a pig inside a human body
Squealer, squealer, squeal out, you’re so disgusting
You’re just a pig inside

Swine, swine
Swine, swine
Swine!
Swine!

Be that hog
Sweat it out, you squealer
Let your body jiggle
Slap her skin-he
Love to watch her ass go wiggle
It’s the feel of ecstasy

While Gaga sang, a woman wearing black pasties under a see-through top, made a devil’s sign with her right hand as she stuck two fingers down her throat and barfed lime green vomit all over Gaga. Again and again.

You can watch the disgusting performance here: https://www.hooktube.com/watch?v=EKAD_VJRWmI

The vomit woman is Millie Brown, who was 27 years old at the time.

She’s a “vomit performance artist” from London, who “uses” her body “to create a performance that was about the beauty from inside out”. Brown’s vomit paintings sell for around $20,000 each. (Elle)

Francis: The pope who refuses to genuflect at the consecration

The General Instruction of the Roman Missal is the Catholic Church’s instructions governing the celebration of Mass.

N. 274 of the Roman Missal specifies that:

“During Mass three genuflections are made by the priest celebrant: namely, after the showing of host, after the showing of the chalice and before Communion.”

Ann Barnhardt was the first to notice this — that on March 14, 2013, when Jorge Bergoglio said his first Mass as Pope Francis, he did not genuflect in accordance with the Roman Missal‘s instructions.

In the video of that Mass below, the consecration of the host into the Body of Christ happens at the 51:47 mark, and the consecration of the chalice or wine into the Blood of Christ at the 52:32 mark — but Pope Francis did not genuflect.

While the Church makes exemptions for priests whose health makes genuflecting or kneeling difficult or impossible, that is not the case with Pope Francis who often has been seen kneeling.

Indeed, if you do a “google” search for images of Pope Francis kneeling, you’ll find plenty. Here are two:

Pope Francis kneelsPope Francis kneels1

Here’s Pope Francis not genuflecting in another Mass — the Christmas Midnight Mass, December 24, 2016.

The consecration of the host into the Body of Christ begins at the 1:18:57 mark. Note how the Vatican’s camera cuts to a nun dressed in blue in the congregation (11:19:25), to avoid capturing the Pope’s refusal to genuflect.

Then comes the consecration of the wine into the Blood of Christ (1:20:20). Once again, the camera cuts to and lingers on another blue-garbed nun in the congregation (1:20:36 to 1:20:42), instead of showing the Pope not genuflecting.

To this day, an official explanation as to why Pope Francis does not genuflect at the consecration of host and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ has not been offered.

From the Italian-language GloriaTV, February 21, 2018 (Google Translation):

Francis still refuses to kneel before the Eucharistic adoration.

Vatican News (21 February) published photographs of a Eucharistic adoration that took place during the retreat of the Roman Curia in progress in Ariccia, near Rome.

The participants in the retreat knelt before the monstrance, except Francesco.

The rumors that Francis had problems with his knees proved to be false as he knelt on several occasions before the refugees on Holy Thursday or while visiting an Anglican shrine in Uganda in November 2015.

Insanity: Police called to Louisiana high school because of square-root symbol

Americans really are getting dumber.

Oberlin High School is a public school in Oberlin, Allen Parish, Louisiana, with an enrollment of 290 students, 50% of whom are “minorities” and 57% “economically disadvantaged”. The students are rated 54% and 75% in mathematics and English proficiency, respectively.

Scott Berson reports for the Miami Herald that on February 20, 2018, a discussion among students at Oberlin High School about the square-root mathematical symbol led to the police being called to investigate “terroristic threats”.

A student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign. (The square root is a number that, when multiplied by itself, equals another number.)

Other students in the group commented that the symbol looked like a gun. Another student said something that, according to the sheriff’s office, could have sounded like a threat out of context.

So the school called the police, who searched one of the students’ home, where they found neither guns nor any evidence that the student had any access to guns. Nor did the police find any evidence that the student had any intent to commit harm.

The Sheriff’s Office concluded that “The student used extremely poor judgment in making the comment, but in light of the actual circumstances, there was clearly no evidence to support criminal charges.”

Nevertheless, the school board had been contacted to determine any disciplinary action for the student.

Lori Lemons is the principal of Oberlin High School:

Delusional: Pope Francis says he’s on waiting list to be a saint

Dr. Thomas D. Williams reports for Breitbart that on February 15, 2018, Pope Francis said to a group of priests that he is “on the waiting list” to be a saint:

“There are two recent bishops of Rome who are already saints. Paul VI will be a saint this year. One with his cause for beatification in progress—John Paul I—his cause is open. And Benedict and I are on the waiting list. Pray for us!”

Note: The pope is also the bishop of Rome. The “two recent” popes who were canonized (declared saints) are Popes John XXIII and John Paul II.

Breitbart‘s Dr. Williams charitably assumes that Francis “was almost certainly speaking tongue in cheek,” but would you joke about expecting to be declared a saint?

Jesus said, in Mark 8:38:

“For he that shall be ashamed of me and of my words . . . the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

It is difficult to imagine that any Christian, even less a Pope, can become a saint when he is so ashamed of Christ that he conceals the cross by stuffing it into his waist sash, so as not to offend Jews. (See “Pope Francis is ashamed of the Cross, knows better than the Gospels”)

Or a pope who joked about Christ’s crucifixion.

Or a pope who’s so dictatorial that he, through his mouthpieces, threatens to excommunicate faithful Catholics who disagree with his unorthodox (but artfully ambiguous) notion in his “apostolic exhortation” Amoris Laetitia that divorced Catholics who remarried outside the Church — and therefore are adulterers — can nevertheless receive Holy Communion, including:

  • Alessandro Maria Minutella, a priest in Sicily.
  • And the latest to be subjected to Pope Francis’ wrath, Raymond Arroyo of EWTN — the Catholic radio and TV founded by Mother Angelica. In his “World Over” show of February 15, 2018 on EWTN, Arroyo was critical of ultra-liberal Cardinal Blase Cupich, and of a recent speech at Georgetown University by Fr. Antonio Spadaro, Pope Francis’ confidante and mouthpiece. So Spadaro is calling for EWTN to “get rid of Raymond Arroyo,” and EWTN itself to be “interdicted”. Interdiction bans a Catholic from accessing most Church Sacraments, and is one step short of excommunication. (LifeSiteNews)

Take the world’s shortest IQ test!

The Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT), developed in 2005 by psychologist and Yale School of Management professor Shane Frederick, is the world’s shortest IQ test, comprised of only three questions.

In a paper published in The Journal of Economic Perspectives, Frederick explains that he picked the three questions because they were all “found to yield impulsive erroneous responses” — the questions make it easy for people to quickly jump to conclusions. In other words, the CRT was designed to test your ability to ignore your intuitive gut response and think more rationally.

After you’ve taken the test, scroll down for the answers.

No cheating!!!

Here Are the Questions

1. The Bat and Ball Problem

A bat and a ball together cost $1.10. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?

2. The Widget-Making Machine Problem

If it takes 5 machines 5 minutes to make 5 widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets?

3. The Size-Double Lily Pad Patch Problem

There is a patch of lily pads in a lake. Every day, the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half the lake?

Scroll down for the answers to the questions.

Here Are the Answers

1. The ball costs 5 cents.

You probably guessed 10 cents, didn’t you? A ball that costs 5 cents plus a bat that costs $1.05 will set you back $1.10. And $1.05 is exactly $1 more expensive than 5 cents. A Princeton study found that people who answered 10 cents were significantly less patient than those who got it correct.

2. It would take 100 machines 5 minutes to make 100 widgets.

Your gut might tell you the answer is 100 minutes. From the question, we know that it takes 5 minutes for 1 machine to make 1 widget. Thus, it would take 5 minutes for 100 machines to make 100 widgets. (Check out a similar, if not more difficult problem, here.)

3. The lily pads would cover half the lake in 47 days.

You might have guessed 24 days. It seems intuitive to halve the number of days because you’re halving the size of the lilypad patch. But if the area of the lake covered in lilypads doubles every day, it would only take one day for it to go from being half covered to fully covered. Take one day away from 48 days and you’re left with 47. (We have a similar problem here, too.)

Before introducing the test to the world in 2005, Frederick tested the CRT on 3,428 respondents in 35 separate studies over a 26-month period beginning in January 2003. Only 17% of students from the top universities in the world (like Yale and Harvard) got a perfect score. People who score high are less vulnerable to biases in thinking.

So how did you do?

House bill HR 4918 identifies ‘white supremacists’ and ‘right-wing extremists’ as domestic terrorists

On February 2, 2018, a bill was introduced in the House of Representatives which should strike fear in white Americans, conservatives and Republicans.

The purpose of H.R. 4918: Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2018 is “to authorize dedicated domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity and require the Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism.”

Furthermore, HR 4918 proposes that “The domestic terrorism offices authorized” in the bill “shall focus their limited resources on the most significant domestic terrorism threats“.

Who are America’s “most significant domestic terrorists”?

According to HR 4918, Sec. 2 (1):

White supremacists and other right-wing extremists are the most significant domestic terrorism threat facing the United States.

The term “domestic terrorism” is defined by 18 U.S. Code § 2331 as:

“acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State . . . intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping.”

No where in HR 4918 are the terms “white supremacist” or “right-wing extremist” defined.

HR 4918 cites the following “evidence”:

  1. An unclassified May 2017 joint intelligence bulletin from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security found that “white supremacist extremism poses [a] persistent threat of lethal violence” and is “responsible for 49 homicides in 26 attacks from 2000 to 2016 … more than any other domestic extremist movement”.
  2. According to the New America Foundation, of the 77 Americans who have died in terrorist attacks by “domestic extremists” in the United States since September 11, 2001, 89% (or 68½ Americans) were killed by “far-right-wing extremists”. (Note: George Soros’ son, Jonathan Soros, and CNN host Fareed Zakaria are on New America Foundation‘s Board of Directors.)
  3. According to the Anti-Defamation League, “right-wing extremists” were responsible for 150 terrorist acts, attempted acts, and plots and conspiracies that took place in the United States between 1993 and 2017 — resulting in 255 deaths and more than 600 injured.
  4. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (another far-left group), the number of U.S. hate groups and anti-government militias and “patriot” groups increased 14% in 2015, including a more than twofold rise in the number of Ku Klux Klan chapters.

[See “ADL recommends ‘major law enforcement operation’ against Obama critics” “Southern Poverty Law Center puts Dr. Ben Carson on ‘extremist’ list“, “Southern Poverty Law Center urges activists to take down 3 Army bases with Confederate names“]

HR 4918 cites the following as examples of “white supremacist/right-wing” terrorism:

  • On August 5, 2012, a white supremacist shot and killed 6 people at a Sikh gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.
  • On April 13, 2014, a neo-Nazi shot and killed three people at a Jewish community center and a Jewish assisted living facility in Overland Park, Kansas.
  • On June 8, 2014, in Las Vegas, Nevada, two supporters of a “far right patriot movement” ambushed, shot and killed 2 police officers and a civilian.
  • On June 17, 2015, a white supremacist shot and killed 9 members of  the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
  • On November 27, 2015, an anti-abortion extremist shot and killed a police officer and 2 civilians at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
  • On March 20, 2017, a white supremacist who reportedly traveled to New York “for the purpose of killing black men,” murdered an African-American man in New York City.
  • On May 26, 2017, a white supremacist targeted 2 young women with anti-Muslim hate speech, and murdered 2 men and injured a third in Portland, Oregon.
  • On August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia, a white supremacist killed one and injured nineteen after driving his car through a crowd protesting a neo-Nazi rally. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said, “It does meet the definition of domestic terrorism in our statute.”

Note that HR 4918 pointedly excludes any mention that in April 2016, a report by the Obama administration’s DHS/FBI identified Antifa as domestic terrorists.

Nor does HR 4918 make mention of Antifa domestic terrorists’ many acts and threats of violence, including:

H.R. 4918 was introduced by Rep. Bradley Schneider (D-IL) and co-sponsored by Democrats Bennie Thompson (MS), Robin Kelly (IL), Luis Correa (CA), Vicente Gonzalez (TX), and Sanford Bishop (GA). Schneider is a former AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) lobbyist.

Meanwhile, Haaretz reports that on February 13, 2018, Israel’s Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said Israel must maintain a Jewish majority, even if doing so “violates human rights”. But you won’t hear any objection to that from Rep. Schneider.

The House has not yet voted on HR 4918. On February 14, 2018, the bill was referred to the House Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.

Please contact committee chair Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and tell him you strenuously oppose HR 4918. Click here or to to https://peteking.house.gov/contact. This is the email I sent King. Feel free to use as yours:

Dear Congressman King:

You are the Chair of the House Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. I understand HR 4819 is in your committee. This is to let you know that I strenuously oppose HR 4819 because the bill (1) Does not define what “white supremacists” and “right-wing extremists” mean; (2) Discriminates against white and conservative Americans by labeling them “domestic terrorists”; (3) Blatantly ignores left-wing terrorists like the Antifa, whom the Obama Administration in an April 2016 FBI-DHS joint report had already identified as “domestic terrorists”.

Shame on Rep. Brad Schneidler for introducing the racist and discriminatory HR 4819.
