Mornings with the One Percent™ Live Weekdays 7-10am, This Morning’s Replays are Below

Arnold, CA…Mornings with the One Percent™ is live weekday mornings from 7-10am. The premise for the show is that the USDA ranked all 3,142 counties or county equivalents in the USA on a livability or desirability scale based on factors such as climate, scenic beauty, bodies of water for recreation, humidity and much more. All of our area ranked not only in the top one percent but in the top one half of one percent. So in the ups and downs of daily life remember you don’t have to be a Gates, Buffett or Bezos to live like the one percent. Just live here!

Who would have thought that Q is just an Asian guy who ran 8 Chan/Kun name Ron Watkins?

And his dad looks like a demented captain kangaroo.

It’s easy to see why people were drawn into an online alternative reality game, and hopefully they can let it go now.

This pretty much sums up how the lunatic left feels.

A seminary professor wrote a prayer in which she asks God to help her “hate White people.”

Chanequa Walker-Barnes is an associate professor of practical theology at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, which claims a Baptist identity. Her oration was published in A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal.

“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people,” opens the prayer. “Or at least to want to hate them. At least, I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively.”

“I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist,” she continues.

“I am not talking about the White antiracist allies who have taken up this struggle against racism with their whole lives,” Walker-Barnes clarifies for the Creator of the universe. “No, those aren’t the people I want to hate.”

Walker-Barnes says that she has no interest in hating “strident segregationists who mow down nonviolent antiracist protesters, who open fire on Black churchgoers, or who plot acts of racism terrorism hoping to start a race war,” as such people are “already in hell.” Instead, she desires the strength of God to hate “the nice ones” — specifically, the “Fox News-loving, Trump-supporting voters who ‘don’t see color’ but who make thinly veiled racist comments about ‘those people.’”

She adds that such White people “welcome Black people in their churches and small groups but brand us as heretics if we suggest that Christianity is concerned with the poor and the oppressed” and “politely tell us that we can leave when we call out the racial microaggressions we experience in their ministries.”

Walker-Barnes admits that “I don’t have many relationships with people like that,” meaning that “they are not a good use of hatred either.” So, she asks the Lord for the “permission and desire to hate” the White people who claim “the progressive label but who are really wolves in sheep’s clothing.”

“Lord, if you can’t make me hate them, at least spare me from their perennial gaslighting, whitemansplaining, and White woman tears,” she prays. “Lord, if it be your will, harden my heart. Stop me from striving to see the best in people. Stop me from being hopeful that White people can do and be better. Let me imagine them instead as white-hooded robes standing in front of burning crosses.”

“Let me be like Jonah, unwilling for my enemies to change, or like Lot, able to walk away from them and their sinfulness without trying to call them to repentance,” continues Walker-Barnes, entirely missing the point of both narratives. “Free me from this burden of calling them to confession and repentance.”

She concludes by evoking the spirits of “Fannie and Ida and Pauli and Ella and Septima and Coretta.”


On Wednesday morning, Walker-Barnes addressed criticisms of her words on Instagram, writing, “the folks critiquing have clearly never read Psalms.” She then recalled an incident during which she was called a racial slur after which she did not seek vengeance but “took my rage to God in fear.” She says her experiences have “given me millions of reasons to hate White people,” that the “hatred would be justified,” and that “I could even find biblical precedent for it.” She laments that God has “given me a different spirit, one that insists on looking for goodness and possibility.”

“This thread isn’t for the critics,” she adds. “They’re so wrapped in white supremacist Christianity that only God and maybe some cult deprogramming can help them.”

    So what?

    It’s realistic to believe people are who they prove themselves to be. An abused woman is better off hating the man who hurt her, rather than hoping he will change. It’s about self preservation.

246 “Fully Vaccinated” Michigan Residents Catch COVID, Three Die
Posted on: 2021-04-07 09:47:30   By: Anonymous
 
So much for the COVID jabs being “100% effective” at preventing “serious illness.”

Michigan, now the epicenter of the American COVID outbreak, is desperately begging the federal government for more vaccines. But reports about a rash of infections in “fully vaccinated” patients might provoke a rethink.

The Detroit News reported that as many as 246 vaccinated Michigan residents later tested positive for the deadly bug, including three who have died. The cases were reported between Jan. 1 and March 31, and the 246 had a positive test 14 or more days after the last dose in the vaccine series, said Lynn Sutfin, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

“Some of these individuals may ultimately be excluded from this list due to continuing to test positive from a recent infection prior to being fully vaccinated,” she said.

“These cases are undergoing further review to determine if they meet other CDC criteria for determination of potential breakthrough, including the absence of a positive antigen or PCR test less than 45 days prior to the post-vaccination positive test. In general, these persons have been more likely to be asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic compared with vaccinated persons.”

The department had hospitalization data for 117 of the cases, but 129 were incomplete, Sutfin added. The three deaths were all “persons 65 years or older,” and two of them died within three weeks of completion of vaccination, she said. “While the majority of the population develops full immunity within 14 days of completion of their vaccine series, a small proportion appear to take onger to mount a full antibody response.” Of the 117 with data available, 11 were hospitalized, 103 were not hospitalized, and 3 are reported as unknown, Sutfin said.

As of April 4, about 2.95 million residents, or about 36.5% of Michigan’s population, have been vaccinated, either with one or two doses, according to the state website. About 4.7M doses had been administered.

New cases have surged over the last month, pushing the 7-day average to its highest level since late last year. Even deaths have started to creep higher, a possible effect of mutant strains that are spreading faster in the state.

Election Fraud Prosecution At An “All-Time High”: Texas Attorney General’s Office
Posted on: 2021-04-07 09:55:44   By: Anonymous
 
An official in Texas’ Attorney General’s office testified during a state House hearing that the number of election fraud cases in Texas is at an “all-time high.”

The amount is “higher than our historical average by a long shot,” said Jonathan White, the head of the election fraud agency within the Texas Attorney General’s Special Prosecution Division, to the Texas House Elections Committee last week, reported The Texan.

When asked by a state lawmaker if there were trends in election fraud prosecutions, White said that “have 510 offenses pending against 43 defendants in court right now,” saying it’s “for several reasons probably.”

He did not elaborate.

White said that about 80 percent of those pending cases involve alleged mail-in ballot fraud, and 60 percent of resolved cases involved mail-in voting.

The attorney general’s office prosecuted 534 election fraud-related cases committed by 155 people since 2005, according to the report.

“I think we could both agree that 99.9 percent of people are honest and forthright, they don’t cheat at elections. They don’t go around murdering people or committing aggravated robberies, either,” White said in the hearing.

Last week, the Republican-led Texas state Senate approved legislation that would ban mail-in ballot drop boxes and most drive-thru voting, a measure that Republicans say “ensures election integrity.” Democrats have said it’s voter suppression and makes it harder for people with disabilities and ethnic minorities to vote.

The measure, according to state Sen. Bryan Hughes, a Republican, is “designed to address areas through process where bad actors can take advantage because we want the people of Texas to be confident their elections are fair, honest, and open.” The legislation “standardizes and clarifies” voting rules so “every Texan has a fair and equal opportunity to vote, regardless of where they live in the state.”

It also will require voters who have disabilities to prove that they can’t access polls in person in order to qualify for a mail-in ballot, and would also require authorization from top state leaders to be alerted about any private funding of more than $1,000 that is given to election departments, according to KXAN.

Democrats said the bill will lead to voter suppression.

“Every eligible Texan deserves to have their voice heard at the ballot box—regardless of their race, ethnicity, disability, gender, age, income, or party. SB 7 makes it harder for every Texan to vote,” a statement from the state Democratic Party said. “We aggressively fought this bill because we know it will disenfranchise racial and ethnic minority voters and voters with disabilities, including veterans.”

    534 fraudulent votes! Out of how many million cast?
    Talk about delusional. Like your demigod Trump.
    Out of those 534 being pursued, how many were cast for the GOP? Doesn't say?
    Hmmmm.

      Nice try, but it's cases not votes. Each one of those cases might be thousands of votes.

        Nice try?
        The lemmings have in saying the same thing about positive covid cases and deaths for a year now.
        You can't have it both ways.
        Oh wait, a golfing President that can do all of his work on a golf course or via Twitter vs a President that actually works with professionals that know what they're doing.
        Ask Matt Gaetz what being professional means while he's supposed to be a legislator.

        Most all cases were Republicans trying to vote more than once.
        The Ga bill would also lesson Republican voting.
        The Republicans have lost their damn minds.

      Cases are on 43 defendants, not 510 fraudulent votes.
