Last week I told you how Hanoi Jane was arrested at a climate change protest she organized in DC. From my post:
“Jane Fonda was arrested in Washington, D.C., Friday while taking part in a protest about climate change.
The actress, 81, shared that she would be at the protest retweeting messages from the Fire Drill Fridays account, a Twitter account named for a series of demonstrations she organized to protest political inaction around climate change.
On the Fire Drill Fridays website, Fonda said she’s moved to D.C. “to be closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate.”
“Every Friday through January, I will be leading weekly demonstrations on Capitol Hill to demand that action by our political leaders be taken to address the climate emergency we are in,” she wrote. “We can’t afford to wait.”
She got arrested again this past Friday protesting “climate change,” according to her script.
But what do ‘ya know…just last year (April 25, 2018) Hanoi Jane posted a picture on Instagram of her and her fellow libtards promoting their bomb of a movie, Book Club:
Gee, it appears the hypocrite traitor is flying on a private plane, doesn’t it?
And she’s only in living in DC for four months to protest. How do you think she’s getting back to her home in California? By donkey?

All of you Hollyweirdos are HYPOCRITES.
From Hollywood Reporter: Over 60,000 people piled into New York’s Central Park on Saturday night for the 2019 Global Citizen Festival to not only see performances by the likes of Queen + Adam Lambert and Pharrell Williams, but also hear from stars and activists about Global Citizen’s movement to end extreme poverty by 2030 and achieve the sustainable goals set forth by the United Nations.
Leonardo DiCaprio, a staunch environmental activist, took the stage to condemn the politicians who “have failed to live up to the promises” of the Paris Agreement, along with those who have responded to the recent Global Climate Strike by criticizing its leader, 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.
“Last Friday, young people led the world in strike. Millions of individuals did more than simply walk out of their schools and places of employment. They took a stand. They set an example of true leadership that our planet so desperately needs. These young people have said clearly, definitively and without fear, that the time for inaction is over,” said DiCaprio. “Yet, surprisingly, some have reacted to this movement with insulting tweets and negative talking points — individuals that seem to care more about profit and their own self-interests than about your own future. But we know that the climate youth movement is more important and crucial than at any time in human history.”
The actor added that the scientific community has made this clear, “and unless you live in alternate reality, there is no more time for denial.”
Fellow actors Natalie Portman, Laverne Cox, Forest Whitaker and Kal Penn also highlighted other worthwhile causes. Dakota Johnson returned to the festival after sharing her phone number onstage last year, encouraging sexual assault survivors to call her and leave a voicemail telling their story.
“I received calls from six continents, 70 different countries, adding up to around 60 hours of real stories,” Johnson said. “These stories are from every age, and every gender, and 95 percent of them being women. The oldest called identified as 71, the youngest was 11.”
From Daily Mail: School children are developing ‘eco-anxiety’ as climate change continues to dominate the news agenda, a leading psychologist has claimed.
The panic sparked by the climate change debate has raised fears that the mental wellbeing of young people is suffering.
Child psychologist Andrew Greenfield explained that ‘eco-anxiety’ comes from young people feeling ‘helpless’ about the environment.
‘[Eco-anxiety] is some form of anxiety about where the world is heading when it comes to climate change,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.
‘To some degree, the anxiety stems from kids lack of ability to control what is happening. They want change but they feel helpless to some degree to be able to get that change.’
More than 300,000 protesters in 110 towns and cities across Australia flooded the streets last Friday for the Global Strike 4 Climate.
The worldwide demonstrations were inspired by teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who first made headlines for a one-person climate strike outside the Swedish parliament a year ago.
Speaking about the protests, Mr. Greenfield said it was important children stood up for their beliefs but also stressed concerns about the implications. ‘I think it’s certainly great for kids to say what they think and have their voice, I think it’s got to happen in the right way,’ he said.
‘Encouraging kids to be able to take time off school, is that a great way to do it? I guess we’ve got to think about that. But I think it’s about power in masses and people feel as though they have the ability to control more what’s happening with a power in numbers.’
On Monday, 16-year-old Greta berated world leaders for their inaction on climate change at the UN summit in New York.
The speech captivated audiences around the world but divided opinion on how young people are coping with the threats of the future.
In her explosive speech, Greta said: ‘We are in a mass extinction. And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!’
When will the “useful idiot” “little people” realize that climate change/global warming (or whatever the new propaganda terminology is) is a fraud?
How do we know it’s a fraud?
Always watch what people do, not what they say.
The elites who peddle man-made climate-change DO NOT BEHAVE as if they actually believe earth’s temperatures are rising, which leads to the melting of polar ice, which then leads to rising oceans and the erosion of coastlines. (Did you know that Al Gore predicted the North Pole would be ice-free by 2016?) For if they actually believe that, they would not:
(2) Buy ocean-front property that would fall into the seas as the coastline is eroded by rising sea-levels from the melting of polar ice. Case in point:
In 2015, Barack Obama told the United Nations that climate change was the greatest threat against humanity’s future, particularly for those living close to the ocean. As reported by Timothy Meads for Townhall, Obama said:
No nation, however large or small, wealthy or poor, can escape the impact of climate change. Rising sea levels threaten every coastline. More powerful storms and floods threaten every continent. More frequent droughts and crop failures breed hunger and conflict in places where hunger and conflict already thrive. On shrinking islands, families are already being forced to flee their homes as climate refugees.
A week ago, on August 23, 2019, the same Barack Obama purchased a $15 million luxurious, ocean-front summer home in Martha’s Vineyard, despite the UN’s dire warning that earth has only 12 years left until the point of no return.
Multiple island sources tell us the Obamas are in escrow for the estate owned by Boston Celtics owner, Wyc Grousbeck. The former Prez and First Lady have been renting the house this summer and loved it so much, we’ve learned they made an offer. The property is listed at $14,850,000. Our sources say they’re paying less, but we don’t know how much.
The estate — incredible. It’s 29 beachfront acres. The main residence is just shy of 6,900 square feet. It has 7 bedrooms, so Sasha and Malia have a place to crash, along with several of their friends. It has the obligatory pool, an outdoor fireplace, a chef’s kitchen, vaulted ceilings and 2 guest wings. It has incredible views, especially while soaking in the second-floor balcony Jacuzzi.
You can see more pics of Obama’s ocean-front mansion here.
Frustrated by the performance of the 20-some odd Democrat candidates in their first round of debates, Satan has decided to throw his hat, err, horns into the ring and seek the 2020 Democrat nomination for President of the United States.
He’s granted his first interview to this publication, the Washington Possessed. The transcript appears below, and we’re sure that you’ll find it informative.
Question: Satan, the obvious first question is: what made you decide to run?
Satan: Well, as you know, normally I prefer to operate through stealth and deception; luring souls to do my bidding through temptation and, well, let’s just get it out there, capitalizing on their own stupidity and greed.
After all, if I were open about “yes, I really exist” and “yes, my intention is to have your soul condemned to the eternal fires of Hell,” my soul-yield to date would have been negligible.
But now, thanks to those knucklehead Democrats my hand is being forced; I must give-in to a long-held temptation that I’d resisted until now – that is, to “come out of the closet,” so to speak.
Question: Could you elaborate?
When Donald Trump was running against Hillary, my followers and I were absolutely convinced that we had it in the bag. Yes, there were prayer groups across the country praying for a miracle, for a Trump victory – but since I don’t believe in the power of prayer, I just knew that the efforts of those silly “Deplorables” would be for naught. Well, they really did get their miracle. So yes, I have to admit that even I didn’t see Trump’s victory coming – heaven really got one over on me with that one!
In hindsight, I guess our great victory in deceiving the American people to elect Barack Hussein Obama – twice! – led us into the temptation of becoming simultaneously cocky and complacent.
So for those of us on the dark side, recovering lost ground is critical; if Trump wins again in 2020 and secures the border and appoints more Constitutionally-loyal Supreme Court justices and cements an economy that works for the middle-class, our cause will be set back for decades, if not longer.
Question: I see. But why you, and not one of your many human followers who have already declared their candidacies to become the Democrat nominee for President?
Satan: [Sighs.] Well, as CEO – Chief Evil Officer – of this enterprise, I understand the value of delegating tasks. And while some of my followers openly worship me, most are unwitting dupes that have been led to believe that they’re actually “doing good,” even as they advance the forces of darkness. Their “social justice” is my “stopping Jesus.”
Though many of my followers have high IQ’s and have graduated from Ivy League colleges, they’re still idiots. While this makes accomplishing evil ends through delegation more complicated, they’re still very useful to me. Which, of course, explains the origin of the phrase “useful idiots.”
But when you employ useful idiots they’re going to sometimes, well, do somereally idiotic things. Unfortunately, that’s been the hallmark of this coven of 2020 Democrat candidates. Let me give you some examples:
Openly advocating for open borders and mass amnesty followed by mass “pathways to citizenship” is idiotic.
Openly advocating free health care for illegal aliens at a nationally televised Democrat debate is idiotic.
Openly advocating destroying jobs and America’s prosperity, and decimating standards of living through a “Green New Deal” is idiotic.
Openly advocating for stripping Americans of their Second Amendment rights is idiotic.
Openly advocating for abortion up to the moment of birth – and even after birth – is idiotic.
While I support all that and more, to be open about it is beyond idiotic, it’s crazy. Average Americans from coast-to-coast are now realizing that those Progressive candidates are not only nuts, but also that electing any one of those Democrat candidates will destroy America. The very opposite of “Make America Great Again.”
So the 2020 campaign is already on the trajectory that many Americans, perhaps even a plurality, are going to accurately conclude that Democrats are evil people pursuing an evil agenda. So itʼll become a referendum – a “binary choice” – between Donald Trump and America’s “Divinely Inspired” founding, and out-of-the-closet evil.
Given that, my side is now compelled to bring out our biggest gun: me and my extraordinary talent for deception and enticement through temptation.
Question: I see. But isn’t it risky for you to come out in the open as the candidate for the Democrat Party’s nomination?
Satan: Look, this country has been a thorn in my side since the beginning; ever since what you call “the Founding Fathers” wrote: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator …”
Every time I hear those words, and phrases like “one nation, under God,” I want gag, and then stick a pitchfork right through The Declaration of Independence. In fact, your country is second only to Israel on my Satanic sh** list.
Look, I’ve been on this a long time. After decades of Progressivism and Cultural Marxism and “separation of church and state” – and two terms of Barack Obama – we were finally on the cusp of irreversibly usurping this so-called “Divinely Inspired” country!
Trump’s election upended that. That’s caused my useful idiots to panic, and in their panic they’ve started to show America what’s really behind our curtain. So now there’s no turning back; sometimes you just have to throw the dice and hope you don’t come up snake eyes (though I do have a soft-spot for things snake-related, if you get my drift).
Question: But do you really believe that an openly evil candidate can get elected President in this country?
Satan: Sure. I’ve got a great shot at winning. The Democrat base will vote for me; they’ve been a solid Satanic voting bloc for some time.
Oh, by the way, I’m pondering rebranding the party and changing its name to “The Demonic Party.” Kind of catchy, don’t you think? In fact, I’ve already had a modified Democrat Party logo made up:
I really like it! And it’ll appeal to “Bernie” supporters. But I digress …
Speaking of voting blocs, have you listened to Alexandra Ocasio Cortez? My academics and media have succeeded in creating an entire generation of useful idiots; enthusiastic ones at that.
They’re so idiotic that they actually believe that they’re smart and enlightened and fighting for a historically inevitable victory over the retrograde forces of the “Deplorables.” I mean – while I’d never admit it to them – but really, how stupid can they be? Well, stupid enough to vote for me, en masse, and then feel self-righteous about it!
Plus, the news media, and Silicon Valley’s social media will be behind me, 100%. Already are; have been for years. [Interviewer nods approvingly.]
Also, we’ll offer the illegal aliens amnesty and citizenship in the here and now – and it won’t occur to them that we won’t be offering them amnesty from eternal damnation. So they’ll vote Democrat. Put America on a pathway to Hell? Sí se puede!
And for the ultimate blow, I’ll be promising “free stuff.” Lots and lots and lots of “free stuff!” Medical care, college tuition, food, housing, hair transplants, breast implants – you name it. Whatever it takes.
You can label that “fraud” or “social justice” or “Democratic Socialism” or whatever you want. Doesn’t matter. I’ve learned over the millennia that fostering “coveting thy neighbors’ goods” is one of the most effective ways of seducing souls. In fact, that’s why I ghost wrote “The Communist Manifesto” for Karl Marx.
So you can be sure that in some form or another, I will be the Democrat candidate for President of the United States of America. Even if I don’t get the Party’s nomination, my platform is the Democrat Party’s platform.
Question: I see. One final question: is your campaign going to have a theme song?
Satan: Why yes, as a matter of fact. As you know, Donald Trump has been using The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” – which is a song I’ve always hated, because in a way its title alone tells the listener to reject greed and temptation.
For our campaign, we’re going to use The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil.” One of my all-time faves!
Question: Well, thank you for your time; and especially for the first time being so open concerning your ultimate plans and objectives.
Satan: You’re welcome. Oh, and I’ve noted that you’re with the mainstream media. So I’ll see you again – in Hell.
Brothers and sisters: For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.
For you were called for freedom, brothers and sisters. But do not use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh; rather, serve one another through love. For the whole law is fulfilled in one statement, namely, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. But if you go on biting and devouring one another, beware that you are not consumed by one another.
I say, then: live by the Spirit and you will certainly not gratify the desire of the flesh. For the flesh has desires against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so that you may not do what you want. But if you are guided by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
“For you were called for freedom, brothers and sisters…so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.”
Let those words ring in your ears, and in the ears of all despots, in America and across the world, who are bent on imposing their will and dicta on us, always cloaked in the cover of “good” intentions, whether they be the Marxist false siren of utopian communism, or the neo-Marxist “climate change” save-the-world cultists, or the LGBT-pronoun cultural-Marxists of ivory-tower academe.
For our freedom comes not from men, but from God. As it is said in Sirach 15:14, 16:
God in the beginning created human beings and made them subject to their own free choice…. Set before you are fire and water; to whichever you choose, stretch forth your hand.
Thomas Aquinas conceived an act of free will to be any thought, word, deed, desire, or omission that comes from a person acting with full knowledge of what s/he is doing, “who is free to act or to refrain from action, and who gives the full assent of his will to the act.”¹ The essence of free will, therefore, is choice—the favoring of one thing and the eschewal of another—informed by reason.
But God’s supreme gift of free will does not mean license, the freedom to break rules or principles, to “do as thou wilt” — that first temptation “to be as gods” whispered by the serpent in the first Garden. As Sirach 15:17-20 reminds us:
Before man are life and death, good and evil, whichever he chooses shall be given him. Immense is the wisdom of the Lord; he is mighty in power, and all-seeing. The eyes of God are on those who fear him; he understands man’s every deed. No one does he command to act unjustly, to none does he give license to sin.
The gift of free will is terrifying, for when it is exercised to evil, the consequences are disastrous.
Terrifying though it is, free will is given to humans (and angels) because only by freely electing to believe in, obey, honor, and love God do the preceding acts have authenticity and meaning. For what good is a love that is coerced? As St. Thomas put it, “Man has free will: otherwise counsels, exhortations, commands, prohibitions, rewards and punishments would be in vain.”²
Choose wisely! Choose to be good.
Psalm 119:1-5, 10
Blessed those whose way is blameless, who walk by the law of the LORD. Blessed those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with all their heart. They do no wrong; they walk in his ways. You have given them the command to observe your precepts with care. May my ways be firm in the observance of your statutes! With all my heart I seek you; do not let me stray from your commandments.
May the love and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!
