I think it says a lot that I didn't notice.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

So does that mean a magazine loaded with a clip is called a magazine? Or is that a "full metal jacket"? Does it usually take more than one clip to fill a magazine?

Yes, no, sometimes.

Yeah, this is what I do with magazines and clips, but to each his own.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Not surprised that the con artist we have for a president is surrounded by grifters like this piece of shit

Paula White, a member of President Trump’s evangelical advisory committee, asked her followers to donate their January salaries to her ministry.


Paula White is a televangelist pastor who preaches the “prosperity gospel”, described by the Washington Post as “the theology that God will bless true believers not just with eternal salvation but with material wealth here on Earth.” She has allegedly been close to Donald Trump since well before his 2016 bid for the presidency, and she helped him orchestrate his meeting with hundreds of evangelical leaders during his presidential campaign. She was one of six religious leaders to pray at his January 2017 inauguration.White is a controversial figure whose sermons compel her followers to give “seed offerings” to White’s ministry. Her followers’ generosity (in giving money directly to White’s ministry), she teaches, will result in God’s blessing and their future prosperity. Her ministry has been investigated by the U.S. Senate, and though they found no wrongdoing, the investigation demonstrated the significant personal wealth White has enjoyed as a result of running her ministry.A large part of White’s website involves the notion of giving “first fruits.” Citing Deuteronomy 16:16 (“do not stand before the Lord empty-handed”), White implored her followers in January 2019 to donate their first fruit offering directly to her ministry, and she provided a P.O. box number to which they could send checks. One of her suggestions was that followers should send her “a portion of their first month’s salary.”“Paula is challenging you to put first things first,” her video explained, “and [to] honor God with a significant first fruits offering today. Many give one day’s wages, other’s one week, still others a portion of their first month.” In return, White said to expect “that 2019 will be the year of recovery and supernatural advancement for you”: White has described her position as that of a “faith adviser,” as well as the “head of a council with an inner core of about three dozen evangelical leaders who communicate by conference call and occasional visits to Washington.” In addition to this background, she has also suggested that her followers send her (or her ministry) a portion of their January salaries this year.

There is a little irony with what is at the bottom of the page at that link:

Yeah asking for donations to keep the website you’re reading going is different than a minister asking for followers to send her money so you will get into heaven, but thanks for playing.

You know, sometimes people are just assholes. Why even try to deflect away from this shitheel preacher?

If another country did this to Americans (regardless of reason) we would bring the full force of our military.

So, the United States is basically guilty of conspiring in human trafficking and child endangerment?

I thought this asshole was going to be to busy to play golf. Also, it doesn't surprise me that he tags along another guy known for his taste in porn stars and prostitutes.
