    Reg,

    Alexei Navalny – The man the coward in the bunker fears.

    Ackshuyally, that is past tense, though Navalny’s family and other dissenters like him are left to carry on in defaming the Putin regime.

    Putin’s Putineers do a great job of calling attention to Putin’s evil as well. The coroner announced that Navalny died of “Sudden Death Syndrome.” Pretty catch-all ass-covering prognosis if you ask me. 😁

    I think (hope) that his murder will be a catalyst for change in the long run and that his legacy (his ghost) will haunt the coward in the bunker.

    I’m not afraid and these 15 days convinced me there is nothing to fear. Let them be afraid instead.

    Reg and Fellow Unbelievers,

    Judging from the details about the shooter at Joel Osteen’s megachurch, Allah was the God that was in control that day:

    Shooter at Houston megachurch had lengthy criminal history including weapons charges, police say
    https://www.cnn.com/2024/02/12/us/joel-osteen-lakewood-church-shooting-monday/index.html

    The shooter used a legally purchased AR-15 with a “Palestine” sticker on it, police said. A federal law enforcement source previously told CNN “Free Palestine” was written on the gun. She also had a .22 caliber weapon in her bag which was not used in the attack, according to a federal law enforcement source. Investigators are trying to determine whether she was politically motivated or a disturbed individual, the source said.

    Uh, let me guess…🙄

    According to police, there was some sort of family dispute between the shooter and her ex-husband and ex-husband’s family, some of whom are Jewish.

    “This might possibly be where all this stems from,” Hassig added. He said police also found antisemitic writings connected with the shooter.

    But, of course, the Israel-bashing media doesn’t mention any of this in the headline and buries everything deep in the text.

    And as London’s Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks observed about Antisemitism in general, in this case, the hatred of Jews was not limited to Jews.

    And though it all, Joel Osteen maintained his trademark shit-eating grin. This man’s faith is truly beyond hopeless. 🙄😡

    Anytime I see Osteen’s face I have an image of slapping him in the face with a wet fish.  I feel I could only prosper after that.

    Reg,

    Now, now, Reg. Only if he slaps you with an Ikthes Fish. Then, Anton LaVey’s Golden Rule goes into effect. 👹😁

    The Catholic hand wringing over all the HERESY and APOSTACY in that bro-Jesus TV show was hilarious. I just don’t see how people take themselves so seriously–especially in an Era where they no longer can kill us for laughing at them.

    Maybe Putin envied Navalny?
