Pajama Boy Approved: Bernie Sanders inspires menswear in Balenciaga’s latest collection to hit the runway

From Daily Mail: None of the US presidential candidates this year were exactly known for their fashion sense, but one has emerged as a clear style muse for a high-end designer. Whether it was his politics or his supporters’ rally style, Bernie Sanders nspired Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia’s latest collection, which he showed at Paris Men’s Fashion Week on Wednesday.

The designer sent models down the runway in jackets, sweaters, and blankets baring the Balenciaga name printed to look suspiciously like Bernie’s logo.

At first look, several outfits that came down the catwalk seemed to be adorned with actual Bernie merchandise. Upon closer inspection, however, it becomes clear that Gvasalia reworked the red, white, and blue underlined logo from his campaign to say Balenciaga instead. On some pieces, he also included the year — 2017.

Besides paying homage to his campaign logo, the styling of some of the collection seems to reference Bernie’s as well.

One model wore a seemingly oversized, ill-fitting blue suit, while others wore their Bernie sweaters and jackets over button-downs. A few looked like ‘Bernie Bros’, teaming their Bernie/Balenciaga merch with athletic sneakers and hoodies. Several of the men also rocked nail art with the logo on their fingers, and there were hidden pins that also had the design.

And while it is unclear whether the political pieces will sell, Twitter users who have spotted the collection certainly seem intrigued. ‘This is every millennials fashion dream, and I’m basking in it,’ writer Laurise McMillian tweeted.

‘Balenciaga x Bernie Sanders. Sign. Me. Up,’ wrote one man. Another joked: ‘Who would’ve thought that Balenciaga x Bernie Sanders would be the hottest collab of the year?’

Sunday Devotional: Giving thanks for the election

Isaiah 8:6-7, 10, 23; 9:1-3

Because this people has rejected
the waters of Shiloah that flow gently…
Therefore the Lord is bringing up against them
the waters of the River, great and mighty….
Form a plan, it shall be thwarted;
make a resolve, it shall not be carried out,
for “With us is God!”….

Anguish has taken wing, dispelled is darkness:
for there is no gloom where but now there was distress.
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom
a light has shone.
You have brought them abundant joy
and great rejoicing,
as they rejoice before you as at the harvest,
as people make merry when dividing spoils.
For the yoke that burdened them,
the pole on their shoulder,
and the rod of their taskmaster
you have smashed….

When the tides turned in the evening and early morning hours of last November 8-9, it became clear that Donald John Trump had defeated Hillary Clinton, despite the many polls predicting she would win. Everyone was surprised — not just her supporters, but also the millions who had voted for Trump. Several TV talking heads who are not Trump supporters used the word “miracle”.

St. Paul wrote in his letter to the Ephesians 6:12:

“For our struggle is not with flesh and blood
but with the principalities, with the powers,
with the world rulers of this present darkness,
with the evil spirits in the heavens.”

The 2016 presidential election was not just a political contest “with flesh and blood”. It was and remains a struggle “with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.”

If you doubt that, just look at these pics of the protesters in Washington, D.C., on the day of Trump’s presidential inauguration (source PJ Media):

Did you know that Trump’s inauguration set the record for most prayers at inaugural ceremonies?

Trump started the day at St. John’s Church for a service at 8:30 a.m. The inauguration ceremony had six religious prayers, three invocations and three benedictions.

Trump was sworn in using both his own Bible, gifted to him by his mother, and the Bible used to swear in President Abraham Lincoln. (McClatchy DC)

Inauguration Of Donald Trump As 45th President Of The United States

Trump began the day after his inauguration also with prayers, by attending an interfaith National Prayer Service at Washington National Cathedral. Prayers asking for divine help for Trump were offered by Christian (Catholic, Baptist, Episcopal), Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, and Navajo clergy.  (Daily Mail)

It is reported that today, the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Trump will ban U.S. taxpayers’ funding of overseas pro-abortion groups by re-instituting the pro-life “Mexico City Policy”. (LifeSiteNews)

Thank you, God the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

Thank you for sending your mighty angels, led by the Archangel Michael, to help us.

And may the peace and joy and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you!

MSM lie about how many attended Trump’s inauguration

Don’t believe the MSM’s lies about the sparse number of people who attended Trump’s presidential inauguration yesterday.

THE LIE

The pic below is a screenshot I took from a Daily Mail article. The pic is CNN’s; the caption is Daily Mail‘s.

THE TRUTH

Below is a screenshot I took from C-SPAN’s live coverage of Trump’s inauguration yesterday:

↓ Click image to enlarge ↓

trump-inauguration-1-20-2017

To lie is to deceive, and there are many ways to deceive and to lie.

Even if we assume that the CNN pic is real, taken at the inauguration, it is a misleading and dissembling type of lie, the purpose of which is to get someone to believe in an untruth. The perspective from which the CNN photo was taken minimizes the crowd. In this age of super-clear digital photography, it is curious that the CNN pic is so blurry that the people look like clumps of autumn leaves.

In contrast, the screenshot I took from C-SPAN’s live feed of the inauguration is from the perspective of the Capitol building. It also clearly shows the people in attendance, instead of depicting them as indecipherable clumps.

The CNN pic therefore is a misleading/dissembling lie, to lead us to think that, in the words of Daily Mail‘s caption, “The National Mall was noticeably sparse with people during Trump’s inauguration,” which it most definitely was not.

CNN has a disturbing and proven record of biased partisanship and fake news. See:

Spike Lee Not Using Chrisette Michele Music Due to Trump Performance

spike-lee-butt-hurt

Chrisette takes the high road while Spike continues to display his butt hurt.

From Yahoo: If Chrisette Michelle was hoping for a slot on the soundtrack to Spike Lee’s upcoming Netflix TV series adaptation of his 1986 pic She’s Gotta Have It, she can forget it. The Grammy-winning R&B singer drew massive criticism today after belatedly revealing that she had accepted an invitation to perform at inauguration festivities for incoming President Donald Trump, including from Spike Lee himself. Lee took to his Instagram, stating that he had considered using Michelle’s song “Black Girl Magic” in the Netflix series but, in light of her decision to perform, has changed his mind.

To be fair, how much of a done-deal the use of Michelle’s song actually was is unclear. It admittedly sounds more like Spike Lee likes the song and was considering it but hadn’t actually licensed it yet. Even so, it was a big symbol not only of the criticism heaped at Michelle, but at the cultural fight over who is, and who isn’t willing to be associated publicly with incoming President Donald Trump.

Shocking no one, the vast majority of popular artists fall into the latter camp. That’s especially true for African American artists, thanks in no small part to the president-elect’s campaign, which relied heavily on well documented support from white nationalists and, let’s be honest, well-documented implied reciprocal support from Trump and his team for the same (this statement is, in my opinion, more propaganda/butt hurt from Yahoo).

Michelle is as it turns out fully aware of that unfortunate context, but insists it’s important to reach out nonetheless. “We Can’t Be Present If We’re Silent,” she said in a message posted to her own Instagram today, explaining that while she is devastated over the election results, she hopes for “peaceful & progressive conversation,” and that she is “willing to be a bridge.”

Seattle’s ‘X Party’ candidate would give voters total access

ryan-asbert

Ryan Asbert

I would not be surprised if Ryan became the next face of Seattle politics.

From MyNorthwest.com: There’s a new political party in Seattle. It’s not Socialist. It’s not Democratic, or Republican. In fact, it’s you. It’s the X Party.

The X Party is essentially Seattle voters at large. The idea is that an application will be available to all Seattle voters who will log in and make their voice heard on any legislation. The elected official will vote as the people demand.

That elected official, in this case, will be Ryan Asbert. He announced his intention to run for Seattle’s 8th District on Reddit recently. “I am going to build a web application that anybody in Seattle can log into and use to vote on any upcoming legislation,” Asbert told KIRO Radio’s Jason and Burns Show. “I’ll basically be digitizing my seat, putting it up on the web and letting the citizens partake in the process.”

“Beyond that, we got a number of additional features we plan to drop on top of that,” he added. “The ability to propose legislation, discuss legislation, even post video analysis.”

The 8th District seat is currently occupied by Tim Burgess who will not be running for re-election. It is a citywide seat, representing all Seattleites. It’s why Asbert wanted to run the X Party for the seat, instead of limiting it to one region in the city.

There is a sub reddit page for the party and a website for The X Party.

The X Party

In current democracy, a resident could ideally contact their elected official and make their voice heard. But with the X Party, Asbert wants to take things to the next level, adding extra transparency. “The idea is that everything needs to be as transparent as possible,” Asbert said. “So everything we have access to, you have access to.”

Asbert notes that there are similar apps out there, such as Capitol Bells. But those are merely recommendations. His software system and candidacy will only work on the premise that he votes as the majority of Seattleites instruct.

Part of the digital democracy system Asbert has in mind is a board that monitors the software system. That executive board of the party will be elected, as well, by users.

And in the end, what most Seattle voters say yea or nay to, that’s the way Asbert will go. “It’s not my job to impose my beliefs on my constituency,” he said.

But there are some issues that will have to be worked out, Asbert notes. “There are some blind spots,” he said. “For instance, there has been some concern about some vote brigading. What if all of a sudden a bunch of people sign up and pass a bill to build a Death Star?”

The solution for Asbert as an elected official will, therefore, be to educate the public. Such as Youtube videos explaining the full extent of issues and legislation, and interaction via the app.

The next round of council elections will be next November.

Former Trump adviser Roger Stone survives assassination attempt

Two days ago, on the Alex Jones Show of January 17, 2017, former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone revealed an assassination attempt had been made on him via a lethal poison.

Stone told radio host Alex Jones he’s usually very healthy, but became violently ill several weeks ago:

“I am generally a healthy person. I have been a runner and a weight lifter. I am very careful in my diet. I’m a user of the Infowars supplements. I have been treated with acupuncture by perhaps the greatest acupuncturist in the state of Florida if not the United States.”

Stone said his symptoms presented themselves first as a “routine stomach virus,” but that he eventually grew “exceedingly ill”:

“So I ultimately went to the doctors at Mt. Sinai hospital in Miami Beach, my own personal physician. They conducted extensive blood tests. Those blood tests were passed on to CDC.

The general consensus is that I was poisoned. I was poisoned with, they now say, a substance that may have been polonium or had the characteristics of polonium. This made me exceedingly ill. The conjecture of all the doctors was that I did not receive a large enough dose to kill me, but I have never been this ill.”

Polonium-210 is a radioactive substance that releases extremely harmful alpha particles throughout the body, producing cancer-causing free radicals. It has been used in numerous high profile assassinations, including that of former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko, and was suspected in the death of former PLO leader Yassar Arafat.

As to who is responsible for the attempted assassination, Stone speculates:

“Who would want to do this to me? I am an enemy of the deep state. I think people know that I was an insider in American politics — I was close to power in nine presidential elections. Everything Glenn Greenwald says [about the ‘deep state’] is true [referring to a recent The Intercept article on how the intelligence community is attempting to stifle Trump.]

The Republican/Democrat Bush Clinton deep state has manufactured this Russia fraud. They have compounded it by pushing a clearly fabricated document. Perhaps the fact that I’m effective on behalf of my beliefs has something to do with it.”

The same day as his appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Stone sent out this tweet:

Yes, I believe I was poisoned to stop me from exposing the ‘Russian Hacking’ LIE b4 the Congressional Investigation @StoneColdTruth
