And these grifters are 'main-streamers'; high-end on TV everywhere crooks, with names like Kenneth Copeland and DuPlantis. Just listen to the bullshit. It's amazing anyone believes these guys enough to send them their hard earned money.

Because that's what Republican 'conservative' one percenter douchebags do. From ThinkProgress:
As storms once again battered the state of Alabama over Christmas, Republican Gov. Robert Bentley moved to divert funding from the 2010 BP oil spill recovery effort to finance the renovation of a second Governor’s mansion on the Gulf Coast.Yet that beachside mansion, which Alabama governors beginning with famed segregationist George Wallace have enjoyed, was not damaged by the BP oil spill. It was damaged more than two decades earlier by Hurricane Danny, and has sat empty ever since.
While Alabama’s oyster industry and coastal communities continue to suffer from the effects of the massive Deepwater Horizon oil well blowout, the repairs to the governors’ mansion are estimated to cost between $1.5 million and $1.8 million. Though Bentley says he will stay there only “on occasion,” the administration said the property would be “primarily” used to wine and dine corporate executives considering the state for investment.

In my younger days I used to live on Federal Hill in Providence and often (more than I frankly should have) went to Caserta Pizza for a spinach pie they called a "Wimpy Skippy" for some reason. They are a piece of pizza dough slathered with a helping of very overcooked spinach seasoned with olive oil, garlic and black olives with a liberal amount of pepperoncino (crushed red pepper). I have tried to make them myself and I could never get the technique right. Well, I was just dying for one of those damned things so I thought I'd look on the good old Internet and see if anyone had posted a recipe for them and sure enough I found one. So I whipped up a batch of those tonight and have just wolfed one right down. Delizioso! The method is below as well as the recipe. Make these.. You'll love them!
|Mix the filling ingredients and schmear it on 1/2 of the dough|
|Cover with the other half of the dough, brush with olive oil and bake|
|After first bake, open the dough and allow to cool completely|
|Top with mozzarella and pepperoni, leave flat and bake again|
|After they come out of the oven fold over the dough again, leaving the spinach filling on the bottom|
|(I baked mine again for 5 minutes to crisp them up)|
|The finished product and tastes as good as I remembered too!|

America’s most prominent unwed and highly-paid abstinence spokesbilly has spawned for the second time.
Bristol Palin has given birth to a baby daughter, Sailor Grace, seven months after she called off her engagement to marine Dakota Meyer, who took to Twitter to at last confirm that he is in fact the father of Bristol’s second child.
Announcing the happy news on her Instagram account on Christmas Eve, the 25-year-old daughter of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin revealed that she welcomed the baby on Wednesday December 23, one day before her due date.
‘My sweet Sailor Grace was born yesterday, our family couldn’t be more complete,’ she wrote alongside a picture of herself cradling the newborn in her hospital bed.
Everyone's out of town or doing something with their families today so it's Mr. B and I today. Here's a photo from Christmas Brunch 2010 at the Ritz-Carlton in Boston. Merry Christmas everyone! Here's a link to the video

Schadenfreude Alert! Ted Cruz Blocked From Getting Publicity At Kim Davis Hate Rally By Mike Fuckabee Staffer
It couldn't have happened to a bigger douchebag! It brings me such joy to see these two scumbag charlatans fighting over who'll get to get the most PR out of this ridiculous insane Christianist crackpot.
Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) attempt to show support for Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis on Tuesday was foiled by fellow Republican Mike Huckabee’s campaign team, the New York Times reported. The Texas Tea Party member was seen at a rally backing Davis in Grayson, where Davis was jailed after refusing orders from a federal court and the Supreme Court to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. However, when Cruz tried to talk to the media the Times noted that “an aide to Mr. Huckabee blocked the path of Mr. Cruz, who appeared incredulous.”
Huckabee, who like Cruz is part of the Republican presidential candidate field, was then seen alongside Davis and spoke on her behalf. “Meanwhile, Mr. Cruz stood off to the side, keeping an unusually low profile during the event,” the Times reported.
These Christianists are fucking lunatics! What could possibly go wrong?? AND the perv's name is "Adcock"!! From RawStory:
Parents in North Texas want to know why a pastor with pending charges of child rape and sodomy in Alabama has been hired by the First Baptist Church of Bedford.
According to Alabama court documents, Kyle Adcock faces charges for 29 counts of sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl while he was working at Woodward Avenue Baptist Church between 2010 and 2012. Julie Brooks and Jennifer Fawks told KDFW that they were concerned after learning that Adcock had been hired as a music minister because their children take classes at First Baptist Church during the week.
“Kids trust ministers,” Brooks explained. “And so if they are approached by someone that works in the church, you would trust them. You would have no reason not to.”
First Baptist Church Pastor Steve Knott insisted to KDFW that the church usually performed background checks on employees, but said that Adcock was only working as a temporary employee in the music ministry. Knott also argued that Adcock had not yet been convicted of a crime.
A Google search for Kyle Adcock immediately returns dozens of photos and resulting from his arrest last year. Adcock’s mother had testified at the time that there was a job waiting for her son in Texas if the court agreed to release him on bail.

Early this year Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley declared that same-sex marriage is “demeaning to democracy” in a brief filed with the Eleventh Circuit Court. What ISN’T demeaning, apparently, is cheating on your wife with a 30-years-younger staffer. First, the official story from AL.com:
Gov. Robert Bentley’s wife of 50 years, Dianne, today filed for divorce, saying “their marriage has suffered an irretrievable breakdown,” according to court records. The couple, both 72, were married in 1965 and have four children. The filing cites “complete incompatibility of temperament” and states they have been separated since January. The filing also lists her address as Tuscaloosa and his as Montgomery. “There exists a conflict of personalities which destroys the legitimate aims of matrimony and all possibilities of reconciliation are futile,” the filing states. The couple has continued to make public appearances together. Today, they were seen together at College Colors Day at the governor’s mansion in Montgomery. In today’s filing, Dianne Bentley asks for the governor to pay for all debts the couple incurred during the marriage, as well as her attorney fees. She also seeks sole ownership of all property they acquired during their marriage. Her attorney today also filed notice that he intends to take a deposition from the governor on November 20 at his Birmingham office, according to court records.
And here’s what Legal Schnauzer says is the inside scoop:
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley engaged in an extramarital affair with his former communications director, leading First Lady Dianne Bentley to file for divorce last Friday after 50 years of marriage, sources tell Legal Schnauzer. Rebekah Caldwell Mason, a married mother of three from Bentley’s home base of Tuscaloosa, was the governor’s mistress in an affair that sources say raises a number of possible legal issues–including use of the state jet and a state trooper’s services for personal reasons that had nothing to do with Bentley’s official role. The 72-year-old Bentley, a Republican serving in his second term, repeatedly has touted his Christian faith and conservative “family values” to attract voters. He long has served as a deacon at First Baptist Church of Tuscaloosa. Bentley made national headlines in 2011 when, shortly after his inauguration, he said, “”Anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister. And I want to be your brother.” Rebekah Caldwell Mason, sources say, quickly became more than just a communications director to Bentley. Their affair became so widely known that it diluted any moral authority the governor might have had. “He’s been impotent as governor for at least the last six months,” one source told Legal Schnauzer. “People have been going into his office and saying, ‘Do what I want or I’m going to play the girlfriend card.’ People have been running all over him.”

|Cardinal Boozy O'Shitfaced|
In what seems to be a "standing head(line)" in the newspapers lately is what you see above. Another holier-than-thou Christianist douchebag, William Cardinal Levada, Former Archbishop of San Francisco has been charged with flying around the Big Island shitfaced in charge of an automobile. The boozebag was vacationing in Hawai'i with a group of "priest friends" according to the Hawai'i Herald Tribune.
You may have read that this is the same guy who came to the defense of Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony, who was stripped of his public duties over his handling of the priest sex abuse crisis in the church, but still allowed to select a new pope, saying some priest abuse victims groups who have criticized Mahony may never be satisfied with the church’s response to the crisis. (Boy these creeps are sickening, aren't they?)
Anyway, Cardinal Levada was last seen playing Amazing Grace on a breathalyzer bag

Holy Hypocrite! This is great stuff! Another anti-gay "family values" bullshit Christianist scumbag has been caught breaking the rules of Leviticus. To whit
But data released online in the wake of the hack on Ashley Madison’s servers certainly seems to show otherwise. Someone using a credit card belonging to a Joshua J. Duggar, with a billing address that matches the home in Fayetteville, Arkansas owned by his grandmother Mary—a home that was consistently shown on their now-cancelled TV show, and in which Anna Duggar gave birth to her first child—paid a total of $986.76 for two different monthly Ashley Madison subscriptions from February of 2013 until May of 2015.
According to the data, Josh Duggar was paying Ashley Madison in order to find an extramarital partner for the following acts:
“Conventional Sex,” Experimenting with Sex Toys,” One-Night Stands,” “Open to Experimentation,” “Gentleness,” “Good With Your Hands,” Sensual Massage,” “Extended Foreplay/Teasing,” “Bubble Bath for 2,” “Likes to Give Oral Sex,” “Likes to Receive Oral Sex,” “Someone I Can Teach,” “Someone Who Can Teach Me,” “Kissing,” “Cuddling & Hugging,” “Sharing Fantasies,” “Sex Talk.”
And here are the turn-ons that he offered up in service of finding a compatible person other than his wife with which to engage in those acts:
“A Professional/Well Groomed,” “Stylish/Classy,” “Casual Jeans/T-shirt Type,” “Muscular/Fit Body,” ”Petite Figure,” “Tall Height,” “Short Height,” “Long Hair,””Short Hair,” “Girl Next Door,” “Naughty Girl,” “Sense of Humor,” “Imagination,” “Creative and Adventurous,” “Relaxed and Easy Going,” “Aggressive/Take Charge Nature,” “Confidence,” “Discretion/Secrecy,” “A Good Listener,” “Good Personal Hygiene,” “Average Sex Drive,” “High Sex Drive,” “Dislikes Routine,” “Has a Secret Love Nest,” “Disease Free,” “Drug Free,” and “Natural Breasts.”
Man, this guy is quite the scumbag, n'est ce pas?
**UPDATE From JoeMyGod.com**
And there's more!
RadarOnline.com can reveal even more bombshell details of the 19 Kids & Counting star’s depraved double life: A Facebook account registered to his email address is friends with local Arkansas strippers and lingerie models. Josh admitted to signing up for cheaters website Ashley Madison with the email address email@example.com, and there is a Facebook account registered to that address under the name Joe Smithson. According to the profile, “Smithson” was posting on the site as far back as 2004 — four years before Josh married Anna. “Smithson” is friends with 32 women, mostly attractive and young, and from the area of Arkansas where he lived before leaving for a political career in Washington, DC. He’s also a follower of a dancer at Sensations Gentleman’s Club in Arkansas, a lingerie model, and a curvy blonde blogger.
Radar notes that Duggar was active on the secret Facebook account after he was hired by the Family Research Council.
