Don’t worry Virginia, televangelist Pat Robertson has ordered Hurricane Florence not to hit you.

Robertson claimed that when he first arrived in Virginia in 1961 to establish CBN, the region was threatened by Hurricane Esther, which he feared would destroy his fledgling network. As such, Robertson and his staff gathered in prayer and commanded the storm to shift course, which he claims miraculously happened because God stepped in to save CBN.

With another storm approaching, Robertson again gathered with CBN staff today to order Florence to veer away from land and produce no damage.

“I don’t want that thing to come in,” Robertson said. “I don’t want it to hurt Regent, I don’t wait it to hurt CBN, I don’t want it to tear up the beautiful campus, I don’t want it to tear these trees down, I don’t want to see any damage, I don’t want a bunch of glass flowing, and I don’t want [damage] all over this area that is counting on us to pray for them.”

Robertson then commanded Florence, in the name of Jesus, to change its path away from land and to spin off into the Atlantic ocean.

“We declare in the name of the Lord that you shall go no farther, you shall do no damage in this area,” he said. “We declare a shield of protection all over Tidewater and we declare a shield of protection over those innocent people in the path of this hurricane. In Jesus’ holy name, be out to sea!”

Robertson then assured those who had gathered in prayer that they will “live to mark this day” as the moment when their prayers guaranteed that “we are not going to let Hurricane Florence hurt us.”

I wonder how many thousands of people have died with the phrase “Don’t worry, God will protect us” still ringing in their ears? 

Anybody who actually thinks that Robertson can convince weather to change course is an idiot, but then so is anybody who actually listens to Pat Robertson.

    First of all, isn’t Pat Robertson dead yet? And, secondly, Hurricane Florence has not been predicted to make a direct hit to Virginia but the state will surely be affected by high water in its coastal areas and heavy rain further inland. So, Robertson’s statement is partially correct but it’s not his interference with God that’s causing it. It’s the direction that has been predicted for the last week by the government agencies, here and abroad, that study these things. Robertson should just go back to bed. No one needs him this week.

    FB>’Trump redirected $10 Million of money budgeted for FEMA to ICE.
    Answer me a question: who do you think will do more damage to America tomorrow? Hurricane Florence? Or illegal immigrants?
    This morning Trump said: “We got A Pluses for our recent hurricane work in Texas and Florida (and did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico, even though an inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan). We are ready for the big one that is coming!”
    A Pluses.
    That’s what he claims.
    An A+ from … who?
    From the families of the 3000 Puerto Ricans who died in Hurricane Maria? Is THAT who he got an A+ from?
    Also, “inaccessible?”
    Inaccessible? Puerto Rico isn’t some remote island in the South Pacific, hidden by perpetual storm, inhabited by 50 foot tall apes and dinosaurs from the Lost World. It’s a heavily populated U.S. territory, one of the largest islands in the Caribbean, a few hundred miles from the mainland. A day’s transit for a cargo ship — smack in the middle of one of the most heavily trafficked shipping lanes in the world. A hour’s flight for any modern jet. It’s easier to get to Puerto Rico than it is to certain parts of Utah, or Maine, or … South Carolina.
    We moved all the supplies necessary for sustained WAR, all the way from America to Iraq and Afghanistan — and seriously, you think the electrical infrastructure in Puerto Rico is bad? Try Afghanistan. Inaccessible? For the United States of America? With all of our might, all of our resources, all of our capability, inaccessible? Really?
    With a massive hurricane bearing down on the East Coast, the president of the United States literally just blamed hurricane victims for their own deaths and diverted funds away from the agency that is supposed to manage the response.
    Maybe we can use some of that $10 Million to hire illegal immigrants to help us rebuild after Florence passes.
    This guy, seriously. He’s got to go.”

    Track’s constant masturbating has caused another hurricane. In the name of dog, please stop spanking the monkey.

    Why is it when Pat Robertson prays it looks like he is trying to squeeze out a hard trud?

    “As the hurricanes, the 9/11 anniversary and McCain’s death make clear, Trump is incapable of normal human emotion”
    ” If I didn’t know better I would think there’s something wrong with the Republican Party that it keeps electing these people.”
    “Nixon didn’t manifest the grandiose self-regard that Trump uses to mask his insecurities. But both presidents have a petty, mean vindictive streak and a fetish for never showing “weakness.” And both will be remembered for a total lack of normal human empathy.”
    “The mayor of San Juan spoke for most people with this tweet:
    Success? Federal response according to Trump in Puerto Rico a success? If he thinks the death of 3,000 people os a success God help us all.

    ” “I like to be good. I don’t like to have to ask for forgiveness. And I am good. I don’t do a lot of things that are bad.” When he was forced to make the one and only apology he’s ever made (for his crude comments on the “Access Hollywood” recording) he apparently made a promise to himself to never do it again. ”

    “Figuring out all of the causes is tricky, Francis told ThinkProgress Tuesday, but “certainly the uptick [in blocking highs] is consistent with expectations in a world with rapid Arctic warming, which tends to weaken jet-stream winds and favor a more meandering path. Large northward swings can break off in an eddy, forming a blocking high.””

    John Kerry tells the story of his remarkable American life—from son of a diplomat to decorated Vietnam veteran, five-term United States senator, 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, and Secretary of State for four years—a revealing memoir by a witness to some of the most important events of our recent history.

    Every Day Is Extra is John Kerry’s candid personal story. A Yale graduate, Kerry enlisted in the US Navy in 1966, and served in Vietnam. He returned home highly decorated but disillusioned, and testified powerfully before Congress as a young veteran opposed to the war.

    Kerry served as a prosecutor in Massachusetts, then as lieutenant governor, and was elected to the Senate in 1984, eventually serving five terms. In 2004 he was the Democratic presidential nominee and came within one state—Ohio—of winning. Kerry returned to the Senate, chaired the important Foreign Relations Committee, and succeeded Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in 2013. In that position he tried to find peace in the Middle East; dealt with the Syrian civil war while combatting ISIS; and negotiated the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement.

    Every Day Is Extra is Kerry’s passionate, insightful, sometimes funny, always moving account of his life. Kerry tells wonderful stories about colleagues Ted Kennedy and John McCain, as well as President Obama and other major figures. He writes movingly of recovering his faith while in the Senate, and deplores the hyper-partisanship that has infected Washington.

    Few books convey as convincingly as this one the life of public service like that which John Kerry has lived for fifty years. Every Day Is Extra shows Kerry for the dedicated, witty, and authentic man that he is, and provides forceful testimony for the importance of diplomacy and American leadership to address the increasingly complex challenges of a more globalized world.

    The term swiftboating is a pejorative American neologism used to describe an unfair or untrue political attack. The term is derived from the name of the organization “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth” because of their widely publicized—and later discredited—campaign against 2004 U.S. presidential candidate John Kerry.

    “The president tweeting this morning about A-pluses. Really, even the most — even the most generous read can put the president at the center of his words, his public statements, his utterances about this potentially deadly storm bearing down on the Carolinas. It’s bizarre!”

    Yeah. It looks like Pat is trying to squeeze out an uncooperative dried up one from his anus. It will be tres interesting to see how the Trump administration responds to the plight of people that are going to be affected by this. The fact that they are in America should play a great role right? We shall see.
