The Good News Just Keeps Coming

Josh Bernstein conspiracy theorist

Far right wing commentator Josh Bernstein, who once appeared to threaten to shoot anyone trying to give him a coronavirus vaccine, has contracted COVID-19 and he’s calling it “brutal” and “unbearable.” Bernstein cackled: “Resist the vaccine at all costs,” Bernstein told his audience back in April. “Resist microchips, stop wearing facemasks, go outside. breathe in some fresh air, get some exercise, eat right, get your sleep, all that good stuff, enjoy your life. And let me worry about the government and everybody else trying to destroy your freedoms,” he said. “I’m not getting an injection, I’m not getting microchip. And if anybody tries to do it to me or I’m sure, millions of Americans out there, guess what, they’re going to get a lead injection instead.”1

Bill Deagle

Earlier, Bernstein declared on Bill Deagle’s “NutriMedical Report” radio show, that all Democrats had to be sterilized.2 Yet, as a preacher, he says he is opposed to sterilization.

Abortion to Armageddon by Bill Deagle appealing to QAnon

Deagle, who continues to claim to be a medical doctor, and has written a book of horror: Abortion to Armageddon that is filled with false information, and appeals to QAnon and End-Timers. He was suspended by the Colorado Medical Board for prescribing several prescription drugs to thee patients of which one died.3 Deagle claims that he gets his orders from god and usually carried by the archangel Gabriel. He usual lists MD, ABFP, CCFP, AAPM, CIME, AAAAM, ACOEM, AAEM after his name. ABFP stands for American Board of Family Practice, CCFP for Certificant of the College of Family Practice of Canada, AAPM for American Academy of Pain Management, CIME for Certified Independent Medical Examiner (American Board of Independent Medical Examiners), AAAAM for American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, ACOEM for American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, and AAEM is the American Academy of Environmental Medicine.–none were earned or awarded. His prescriptions included 24 for pain (2,072 doses), three for sleep (66 doses), seven for depression (294 doses) and 12 for anxiety (821 doses) including Oxycotin, Oxy IR, Actiq, Xanax, Klonopin, Paxil, Bextra and Soma. On Deagle’s own website is even more effusive if not much more grammatical: “As a pro-life messianic Christian physician, I expose the evils of abortion and genetically engineered designer babies, euthanasia on-demand, trans-human gene enhancement cyborg technology, RFID National and Global ID, Scalar Mind Control, GMO genetically modified and irradiated foods, toxins of Mercury and Fluoride, Depleted Uranium DNA Landmines, planned American Hiroshimas, NeoCon Iranian WWIII, World Trade Organization Codex Alimentarius, Illegal Immigration, End of the Age eschatology, classified above-government technologies, DUMB1 Deep Underground Military Bases One, Scalar Sacred Geometric Vortex Technologies, Zero Point Energy, SDI Strategic Defense Initiative “Star Wars’, ET . Doctrines of Devils, apostasy in the church and the coming One World False Church and the weaponized Avian Flu Pandemic from a Biblical, scientific-logical and prophetic viewpoints…” Deagle has no formal religious education and his claims are not supported by any recognized religion, although he is praised by QAnon and fringe groups in the white evangelical christian groups.

Baphomet statue The Satanic Temple

These quacks, like Republicanazis in every state legislature claim that they are spokespeople working for their white supremacist godling. Fortunately they are confounded by the Baphomet of truth: challenging the humor-impaired right-wing bullies, but there are still some on the left who know how to troll with wit and style while serving the forces of good instead of evil and reject christian fundamentalists who try to pass off their theocratic impulses as “religious freedom.” It is the brain-trust of those who have created the spoof “Temple of Satan” standing for human and civil rights of all. It is now fighting the neo-Nazi Texas ban on abortion by declaring that abortion is one of their sacred rituals, making the ban a major imposition on their free expression of religion.4 This nontheistic organization (headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts) sent a letter to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration demanding access to abortion pills for its members.5

“Abortion pill” is the common name for using two different medicines to end a pregnancy: mifepristone and misoprostolFirst, you take a pill called mifepristone. Pregnancy needs a hormone called progesterone to grow normally. Mifepristone blocks your body’s own progesterone, stopping the pregnancy from growing. After taking misoprostol, you take the second medicine, misoprostol, either right away or up to 48 hours later. This medicine causes cramping and bleeding to empty your uterus. It’s kind of like having a really heavy, crampy period, and the process is very similar to an early miscarriage. If you don’t have any bleeding within 24 hours after taking the second medicine, call your nurse or doctor.

Your doctor or nurse will give you both medicines at the health center. When and where you’ll take them depends on state laws and your health center’s policies. Your doctor or nurse will give you detailed directions about where, when, and how to take the medicines. You may also get some antibiotics to prevent infection. Please tell your Texas legislator that I told you how to use an effective and safe way to end an unwanted pregnancy and have published three books on abortion while I lived in Texas6 –and let them sue me.

The group has established an “abortion ritual,” and is attempting to use the Religious Freedom Restoration Act to  argue that its members should be allowed access to abortion drugs like Misoprostol and Mifepristone for religious purposes.

To add insult to Texas, Lucien Greaves, Temple spokesperson told the San Antonio Current: “I am sure Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton—who famously spends a good deal of his time composing press releases about Religious Liberty issues in other states—will be proud to see that Texas’s robust Religious Liberty laws, which he so vociferously champions, will prevent future Abortion Rituals from being interrupted by superfluous government restrictions meant only to shame and harass those seeking an abortion.”7  the organization — an IRS-recognized atheist church with 300,000 members — has filed suits8 in multiple states to highlight religious overreach. In one of the highest profile of those, the organization argues that it should be allowed to place a bronze statue of the goat-headed entity Baphomet in the Arkansas Capitol since the state is displaying a Ten Commandments monument there. What is hilarious is the consternation and fear that there are threats of actual violence against Republicanazis in the Texas legislature for passing the vile abortion bill that deprives women of Texas having a right to chose the destiny of their own body.9

There were 83 members who voted for the bill during the regular session against the right of all women of Texas to choose for themselves the destiny of their own bodies–returning Texas women back to the misogynic menacing of Machiavellian male dominance over women prior to 1973 barbaric Texas when back alley butchers cost women their lives in their attempt to end an unwanted pregnancy, with one

Democrat (Ryan Guillen misrepresenting the majority of the women and many men of Rio Grande City in House District 3110) joining 82 Republicans in voting for it.11 Threats against lawmakers for their political stances are not uncommon in the Texas Legislature. I support the women and hope that some of the threats come to fruition as the Republicanazis in the Texas legislature should not be exempt or protected from the people for their action against the people.

Wester family with four-month-old son kicked out of a restaurant for wearing face masks to protect their infant son

A neo-Nazi restaurant and bar, Hang Time Sports Grill & Bar in Rowlett, Tex., a Dallas suburb, owned by fascist owner Tom Blackmer said is his right as someone who purchased and has invested in a private business sent over a server “because I am nicer than he is. … But this is political and I need you to take your masks off.”12 When the Westers attempted to explain about their child’s medical condition, Blackmer’s emissary kicked out Natalie Wester and her husband 25-year-old Jose Lopez, all because they chose to wear masks to protect their 4-month-old son Austin, who has cystic fibrosis and is immunocompromised.

The server told her they could pay their bill and leave if following the restaurant’s no-mask policy was a problem as Blackmer considers the “no mask” rule a part of his dress code.13 The Westers were not allowed to eat the food they ordered. Later, Ms. Wester replied to some people’s question of why they would go to a bar if they were concerned about protecting their baby: “Some folks asked why we went out at all if our concern was our son. We are both vaccinated (which lowers risk of getting covid significantly), and between that and using masks as often as possible we are able to keep our son at minimal risk while still maintaining our social and mental health. We hardly go out, between Covid and simply being new parents! The issue was that Hang Time was refusing service because we wore a mask (something that absolutely did not affect them) despite us having our reasons to do so.” The next day, the Hang Time Facebook page was no longer publicly visible and the bar’s owner would not return phone calls.14 The Track Grill & Bar, Chili’s Grill & Bar, Sports Grill & Bar, and other fine eating, drinking, and fun centers are open and do not have the low Yelp rating Hang Time has to date; on TripAdviser Hang Time has a 3 rating; most others have a rating of 4 or 5.15

    All this stuff about the Hang Time has been in the paper. But it is the owners right if he wants to be an ass. No law against it in Texas.
    The temple of Satan is a joke also, but again it is religious freedom, after all. And it has been approved by the IRS as a religion.
    Bernestine is a classic example of natural selection. Do Not Bad mouth these guys. The are killing themselves off and thus are contributing the weakening of the GOP. Good for them.

      I know–that is where I get some of my information and do document it in the end-notes, but unfortunately not everyone reads a paper as thoroughly as you do, my friend–and I relish your insightful and well-appreciated sarcasm. It is my endeavor to get this information out to the many that do not have the same worthy analytical mind that you do…and give them some alternatives to Hang Time in Rowlette. I am grateful that The Temple of Satan exists as a thorn in the side of white “evangelical christians” as they work at keeping those white folks busy and wasting their cash on lawsuits. Bernestine is truly a classic example of natural selection and proves Darwin is still right…most of the Texas Republicanazis will go the way of the Dodo bird…and so will tRumpelthinskin! Thank you for reading, and give my regards to your little precious bundle of wiggling joy! from my three babies…
