This past week brought us Mike Lindell interviewing Trump. Jimmy Kimmel really nailed it with this quip …

“Donald Trump doesn’t have a dog, not since he broke up with Mike Pence anyway, But he does have a MyPillow guy. Mike Lindell, the MyPillow guy, has been licking master’s butt again. … It was like watching a ventriloquist get interviewed by his dummy,”

Mike has yet another big showdown promised. He has been claiming that unnamed state attorneys general will file a case with the Supreme Court on November 23.

Jim Darlington warns that COVID-19 and the vaccines are a plot to commit genocide: “ We are being murdered, en masse. We are witnesses to genocide. This is what follows the ‘death of god’ as the night follows the day.

  • Yet it is the unvaccinated that are dying. It’s almost as if … (gasp!) … the vaccine works.
  • “death of God” — but that supposedly happened 2,000 years ago on a cross as a human sacrifice to himself to appease himself … right?

( Joe Jervis reports): Christian Broadcasters Sue Biden Admin Claiming That Vaccine Mandates Are “A Sin Against God’s Holy Word.”

  • It is actually a choice — get the vaccine or get tested weekly. How exactly is this a “sin”?
  • Next week no doubt these same folks will be Suing the Biden Admin because being forced to wear seatbelts, and being banned from driving while…
