Now for some good news. God told Michele Bachmann NOT to run for the Senate.

Courtesy of Right Wing Watch: 

Over the weekend, Bachmannn told End Times radio host Jan Markell that after much prayer, she has decided that God does not, in fact, want her to make a bid for this seat. 

“I’m not going to run for that office,” she said. “I had a lot of people contacting me, wanting to give me money and be a part of my team to run for a campaign … But what I did is I did what I have done on every other time I thought about running: I took it to the Lord in a very quiet way, I took it before the Lord, I prayed, I tried to have my ears open and hear what God was saying to me.” 

“I considered it for quite a long time,” Bachmann continued. “From the very first day when Al Franken had announced his resignation from the U.S. Senate, I went before the Lord and it became very clear to me that I wasn’t hearing any call from God to do this.” 

“I’ve always prayed and tried to seek out what God’s will for me would be,” she added, “and each time before, I’ve had this inner sense that I’m supposed to do this, I’m supposed to run. It doesn’t mean a guarantee that I’ll win, all it means is that that’s what I sensed in my spirit, that God wanted me to run. I had absolutely no sense from the Lord at all that I was supposed to run this time.” 

“I just had no sense from the Lord that this is something that I should do right now,” Bachmann said, “so I’m not going to do it.”

You know, that's almost enough to make you believe in a higher power.

    Michele thinks those voices in her head are God...

    I think it was the billboard. She believes all those "this is God" road signs.

  3. Anonymous6:53 AM

    Do you s'pose this billboard--from God!--had anything to do with her decision?

  4. Anonymous7:11 AM

    God must have spoken to her via pollster numbers showing people think she's nuts.

    1. Anonymous9:07 AM

      Or the fact that the senate isn’t gerrymandered.

    Wow this dingbat finally listened to that gawdy voice in her head. Now she should tell trump what the gawdy voice also said. Trump should resign quick before impeachment and criminal proceedings begin. It will be awful

    Hey, Gryphen,
    Long time.
    I saw a reference to a Rachel Maddie segment, in which she said that John McCain and Chis Steele (Trump dossier) May have a longer term relationship than previously reported. The blurb I read said Maddie reported that Steele had worked with one president (Obama?), and that a former VP candidate was working with the Kremlin???!!!
    I can’t link, in a truck in Kentucky. Heard anything?

    1. Yeah, no.

      The segment said that Steele had contacted his friends in the British government about what he had discovered, and then AFTER the election a British diplomat reached out to John McCain.

      There does not appear to be any relationship between Steele and McCain.

      And yes there was mention of a previous VP candidate with ties to the Kremlin, but that person was not identified.

    She can say it was her god, but she knows--has faced it--that she wouldn't stand a chance and that she'd be a joke once again. Just this small amount of coming out of the woodwork again, like a Sarah Palin, has made people start laughing at her all over again.

    Ah, it was so good to see this story/video showing BALD Trump's back of the head. I hope it gets seen by everyone:

      "As he ascended the stairs, cameras had a rear-facing view of the president’s scalp as the howling gusts lifted his combed-over strands straight into the air, and the long-concealed bare scalp below was briefly exposed to the daytime cable audience and to Ashley Feinberg, who spotted the big reveal. It was horrific:"
      "It was the worst hair day of what has been a bad hair life. And it may seem cheap and low to mock Trump’s absurd efforts to conceal his hair loss. But Trump is a man obsessed with image in ways that go beyond the normal human concern with looking presentable. Image is Trump’s moral code. He dismisses his political rivals for being short. "
      "He conscripts the military as a prop to bathe himself in an aura of presidential grandeur.

      Trump’s absurd hair is of a piece with his lifelong attempt to market himself as a brilliant deal-maker and stable genius. So yes, it is okay to laugh when the RU$E is exposed." <cadet bone spurs

      that photo of bald trump has been floating around the net for some time. ivanka told her friends trump's secret-surgery to pull the bald spot closed, and lots of hairspray to hold that stupid comb over in place. and just for men hair dye. a lot of work for a fat slob.

    3. Anonymous9:57 AM

      TMZ now has the bald video there and some stills. Although the stills don't show the full back baldness, there are two pics that have a scar--must be from that scalp reduction surgery.

    4. Anonymous9:58 AM

      No, not the same pic. The link is to a Feb. 2 video that shows Trump's bald back of the head.

    I haven’t seen MSNBC in a solid week. So hard to find updates with no good signal. And good job interpreting the stupid auto-correct.

    "“McCarthy smeared the Department of the Army, smeared the United States Information Agency, the voice of America,” Bernstein said. “He accused people of treason, exactly like Donald Trump did the other day. It’s not an accident that McCarthy’s hand maiden and enabler was Roy Cohen. We heard the other day Donald Trump speak of his mentor, Roy Cohen: ‘Where is my Roy Cohen?'”

    Bernstein noted it is an important moment for the PRESS to lOOk at history."
    "call Republicans out on using McCarthy-like language about a “secret court” or a “secret warrant,” when it was a legislative body and the FISA court involved. The four FISA judges were hand-selected by far-right Chief Justice John Roberts." “The difference between McCarthy and Donald Trump, McCarthy was a senator,” Bernstein said. “We never had a president of the United States who was an authoritarian demagogue before, who issues these kind of smears and lies daily. This is extraordinary. We need to look at it as a country. We need to look at our history. Let’s see what McCarthy looked like and put up the video next to Donald Trump.”"

    Thanks, God! Nice to know you’re on our side every once in awhile. Now, could you perhaps do something about our Vice President? I heard he’s really into you.

      O/T and whimsical - At least Elon Musk is throwing sticks in the air(remember 2001) that give us some hope for expanding outward. Mars is pretty harsh(understatement) but we can be ingenious. Just trying to look at something positive. Maybe we can leave Trump people behind.

    Bachmann is a freak. Incredibly stupid.

    " it’s standard to hold eye contact for seven to 10 seconds, Ben Decker, chief executive officer of Decker Communications, a San Francisco-based training and consulting firm, told WSJ. So, if a person breaks eye contact, it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s untrustworthy.

    However, maintaining an unusually strong amount of eye contact may be a red flag. In the true nature of a liar, he will look for ways to deceive, and that includes being hyperaware of not breaking eye contact, according to Eastman, since it’s commonly considered a “giveaway.”

    Another indication of lying may be decreased blink rate resulting from cognitive overload, which is the theory that when a person becomes overwhelmed with thinking (or creating a lie), his blink rate dramatically decreases. However, like gaze aversion or unusually strong eye contact, decreased blink rate, too, varies for each individual."
    "when people lie they don’t create stuff out of thin air,” Eastman said. Instead, they use memories, what they know, so it’s not completely fabricated, and that in turn may not cause as much cognitive overload and decreased blink rate."
    "Dating experts will tell you maintaining strong eye contact shows interest. We’d otherwise look away if we didn’t want to learn about the person, right? So, it’s the genuine interest that causes us to fix our eyes on the subject; we become excited, and in the process, our pupils dilate."
