Affirmatio

Affirmatio (af’-fir-ma’-ti-o): A general figure of emphasis that describes when one states something as though it had been in dispute or in answer to a question, though it has not been.


Rep. Luno: How many Israeli fire-breathing flying saucers did it take to ignite California’s rash of wildfires? I have been asked this question by scientists and professional speculators from across our beautiful country. Of special interest is the answer given by The American Institute for Rumoring and Mistrust (AIRM). They are devoted to constituting an alternative reality to replace the government’s truth monopoly.

AIRM’s answer to the Big Question: “In our learned , well-considered and totally astute opinion, the widespread fires were caused by the combustion of flammable materials, possibly caused by Israeli flying saucers, BIC lighters wielded by federal agents, and federal prison convicts working on chain gangs in the woods. Combined, these are formidable adversaries and, given their sponsorship, should further erode our faith in our government. It’s wish to burn down America is vile and something needs to be done to thwart it.”

Chemical agents used on civilians in Syria by the Syrian government. Those questioning this fact are not paying attention to reality–they would see us slip into the abyss of ignorance while the world goes to hell around us. We, on the other hand–we believers–are stalwart defenders of the USA and its intelligence apparatus which tells us, after conducting blood tests on victims, that chemical agents were used and caused many fatalities. And, as for who did it, clearly it was the Syrian government, as every eyewitness reports.

If you want to question this, perhaps you should join denier Putin and blame Israel–an idiotic charge made by an idiotic man.

They believe in things that nobody should believe in. They deny climate change. They reject evolution. They believe science is a hoax.

What are these people trying to do to our lives? Sure, they pretty much keep to themselves–but mark my words, some day they will come after us. We must be prepared.

I think my little booklet entitled “Preparing for Them” is just what the doctor ordered to keep us on track when they try to persuade us!  The booklet’s only $1.00 & I just happen to have some right here in my briefcase. You never know when they’re going to come out of the woodwork.

Be prepared for the onslaught!

They question the legitimacy of the Bible as the fundamental guide to goodness and the rule of our lives. “It’s just another book. A wonderful work of ancient literature” they say. They scoff at religion’s foundation in faith and its belief in what cannot be seen or known. “It’s unscientific. It’s a delusion. The opiate of the masses” they say.

We say they stand in the shadows of evil casting off the chords of conscience, rejecting faith, resisting the divine prompting of God’s saving grace and His invitation to the wonders of His endless love.

We know. Sinners will sin.

Yet, the righteous glory in God’s love and pray for the sinners’ salvation.

By the grace of God’s mercy and the almighty grip of His righteous hand, we pray for God’s forgiveness–for the instant salvation of the damned.

It’s true that he’s ahead in the popular vote.  It’s true that he has more delegates committed to his nomination. Yes indeed, he appears to be winning. Why would anybody ask?
